“The Sharp Gold Yuan Ghost in the Golden Antelope Paradise is basically a fifth-grade material, but if one is lucky enough to find the Ghost Essence in it, it will be a pleasant surprise.”
“Ghost Essence? What grade is it?” Yang Kai didn’t ask what this Ghost Essence was, he didn’t need to ask. He could guess that this so-called Ghost Essence was the essence of the Sharp Gold Yuan Ghost, which was definitely much higher than the fifth grade.
Yang Kai couldn’t help whistling. Currently, he didn’t have a very systematic impression of the quality of the materials used to condense the Yin-Yang Five Elements power, so he didn’t know what grade of material it was in the eyes of the masters in the Outer Universe. However, he couldn’t deny that the grade of a seventh-grade material wasn’t low, so it was definitely something that could be fought over.
“Has anyone obtained it inside?” Yang Kai asked.
Zhang Ruoxi shook her head, “I don’t know, perhaps Ancestor knows, but I haven’t obtained these memories.”
Yang Kai nodded lightly and thought of another question, “Then what is the transaction item that circulates in the Outer Universe?”
Different planes, different worlds, and trading goods were all different. Demon Territory were filled with Demon Crystals, while Star Boundary were filled with Source Crystals, all of which were born from Heaven and Earth and contained energy that allowed cultivators to absorb and enhance their strength.
If he wasn’t mistaken, what flowed in the Outer Universe should also be something that could increase one’s strength.
“Open Heaven Pill!”
Yang Kai frowned, “Open Heaven Pill? Why does it sound like a kind of Spirit Pill?”
Zhang Ruoxi smiled lightly, “It is indeed a Spirit Pill, and it is also a Spirit Pill that is useful to Open Heaven Stage cultivators. I have already told Mister that once a Open Heaven Stage cultivator advances, their grade will basically be fixed, but it is not impossible for them to improve. The only thing that can help them improve is the Open Heaven Pill. If one can take the Open Heaven Pill for a long time, their strength will generally increase by one or two grades. If their grade increases, their strength will also increase.”
Yang Kai didn’t understand, “If the Open Heaven Pill is useful to Open Heaven Stage masters, wouldn’t it be useless to us?”
“Of course it’s useful,” Zhang Ruoxi explained, “Since Mister has already condensed the Five Element's Wood Force, the Open Heaven Pill can also help Mister increase the grade of his Wood Force, but Mister alone is not enough. But in general, at Mister’s level, many transactions are conducted through exchange.”
Yang Kai suddenly understood, “A material used to condense Yin-Yang Five Elements?”
“That’s right!” Zhang Ruoxi nodded and said, “A cultivator of this level needs these materials, so if everyone has the opportunity, they will generally exchange them.”
“It seems that if I have the chance in the future, I’ll have to find a Open Heaven Pill's pill recipe,” Yang Kai thought to himself. He was quite familiar with Alchemy, so if he could obtain an Open Heaven Pill’s pill recipe, he might be able to refine it himself, but the materials required to refine it would definitely be difficult to find.
Zhang Ruoxi smiled, “Mister may not know, but there are two kinds of Open Heaven Pills. One is naturally formed, while the other is refined by Alchemists.”
Yang Kai was extremely surprised, “Since it’s a Spirit Pill, how can it be naturally formed?”
Zhang Ruoxi slowly shook her head and said, “The world has its own good fortune. In this vast universe, there will occasionally be a furnace called Heavenly Furnace. This furnace is not a real object, but a projection that can absorb the power of the stars and the universe and refine it into a furnace. Over the years, the Open Heaven Pill will appear inside the furnace.”
Yang Kai clicked his tongue in wonder, “There’s such a thing?” Suddenly, he remembered that he had also received the Heavenly Dao’s teachings on Alchemy. If the Heavenly Dao could teach him Alchemy, why couldn’t it produce a Spirit Pill?
“Strictly speaking, it was because of the Open Heaven Pills created by the Heavens and Earth that the masters in the Outer Universe were able to gradually figure out the pill formulas for these pills.”
“The two should be somewhat different, right?”
“Mister is right, although both are Open Heaven Pills, there is a great difference between them, and the biggest difference is their effects. Although human-made Open Heaven Pills can increase a person’s grade by one or two grades over a long period of time, this is almost the limit. There’s no point in taking more, but the Open Heaven Pills produced by Heaven and Earth are different. They are the purest Star and Universe Force. It is said that this Open Heaven Pill can allow an Open Heaven Stage master’s strength to rise to the highest Ninth Grade!”
Hearing this, Yang Kai’s heart burned as he immediately looked around.
Zhang Ruoxi asked curiously, “What is Mister looking for?”
Yang Kai said, “Let’s look for the Heavenly Furnace you mentioned. If we encounter it, wouldn’t we be rich?” Although he had directly used the Eternal Tree to condense the Wood Attribute and had a high starting point, it would be difficult for him to find a material on the same level as the Eternal Tree. Even if he had such a good material, if his strength wasn’t enough, he wouldn’t be able to snatch it.
As such, Yang Kai was mentally prepared that when he broke through to the Open Heaven Stage in the future, he would not be able to break through to the Ninth-Order Open Heaven Stage. Eighth-Order Heaven Opening Realm would be difficult, Seventh-Order, Sixth-Order, and Fifth-Order would be possible.
In order to improve his own grade and strength, this Open Heaven Pill was indispensable.
Zhang Ruoxi couldn’t help laughing, “How could it be so easy to encounter such a thing? Even if the Heavenly Furnace really does appear, it won’t be our turn. I’m afraid the people from the 36 Cave Heaven, 72 Paradise will immediately rush over. At that time, it will definitely be a fierce battle.”
Yang Kai remained unmoved and frowned, “I think I saw something.”
Zhang Ruoxi pouted, “Mister likes to joke.”
Yang Kai tugged on her arm and pointed in a certain direction, “There really is something there, I don’t think I’m seeing things…” As his words fell, his expression changed, “So fast!”
When he was looking around just now, he vaguely saw something approaching him, but in the blink of an eye, the other party had already closed half the distance between them. The entire process was extremely abrupt, without the slightest trace of movement.
As soon as he finished speaking, Zhang Ruoxi also saw the situation over there and her pretty face immediately changed color, “Myriad Sealed Insect!”
Yang Kai didn’t even have time to ask what this Myriad Sealed Insect was before he saw Zhang Ruoxi’s expression and knew that this guy was not to be trifled with. Looking around, Yang Kai saw that this was a giant, snow-white insect covered in holes. This insect stretched out for tens of thousands of kilometers and looked extremely bloated, but its speed was strangely fast.
As soon as Zhang Ruoxi’s voice fell, the Myriad Sealed Insect had already traversed more than a hundred thousand kilometers and arrived in front of the two of them in an instant, its black hole-like mouth engulfing the two of them.
“Let’s go!” Yang Kai grabbed Zhang Ruoxi’s arm, his Space Laws fluctuating wildly as he prepared to leave.
But soon after, he was shocked to discover that the space around him had been completely sealed off, and the darkness around him had suddenly disappeared.
In the next moment, Yang Kai felt the world spin around him. Even though he was now a Great Emperor, he still felt a bit dizzy, as if he was constantly falling.
Yang Kai was speechless. He had just walked out of the Star Boundary with Zhang Ruoxi, so how could he have run into such a monster? It was only now that he understood the dangers of this place.
Thinking of Zhang Ruoxi, Yang Kai’s heart skipped a beat, because his hand was empty. He had been holding Zhang Ruoxi’s arm just now, but now his hand was empty.
What about Ruoxi? Yang Kai quickly suppressed the discomfort in his Soul and released his Divine Sense to scan his surroundings, but where was Zhang Ruoxi? Forcefully calming himself down, he recalled what had just happened and instinctively felt that he had been swallowed by the Myriad Sealed Insect, so he and Ruoxi should be inside its stomach right now.
Enraged, ambitious to leave the Star Boundary, he was swallowed by a bug before he could even display his ambitions, how could he tolerate this?
With a low roar, he activated his Dragon Transformation Secret Technique and transformed into a two hundred zhang long dragon body. With the Azure Dragon Spear in his hand, a monstrous aura swept out, and within the dragon bone, a Dao Seal blossomed with light as he gathered all of his strength into the Azure Dragon Spear.
In the next moment, the feeling of being turned upside down suddenly disappeared, and his vision blurred as he suddenly appeared in the void, still maintaining the posture of pointing a spear, his momentum not decreasing.
Gathering all his strength, Yang Kai hit nothing but air, feeling extremely uncomfortable. When he finally exhausted his strength and stopped, he turned his head to look around in confusion.
Where was this?
Although he had just entered the Outer Universe world and didn’t know much about the vast universe, Yang Kai was certain that this was definitely not the place he had just been. Everything around him seemed completely different from before.
Without seeing Zhang Ruoxi or the Myriad Sealed Insect, everything just now seemed like an illusion.
Yang Kai grabbed his spear and looked around vigilantly, but there was only silence.
What was happening? He had never felt so lost before.
After confirming that there was no danger around him, Yang Kai quickly put away his Dragon Transformation and took out his Space Spirit Bead, using it to contact Zhang Ruoxi, but there was no response from the Space Spirit Bead.
Yang Kai panicked.
It was one thing for him to encounter such a strange thing for no reason, but for better or worse, he was completely unharmed. Where had that girl Ruoxi gone to? Thinking back carefully, the moment he had escaped, he had felt the power of the Space Laws fluctuate.
Coupled with the unfamiliar environment in front of him, Yang Kai vaguely felt that he had teleported a long distance away. He didn’t know how far he was from the Star Boundary, and he didn’t even know where it was.
The last time he escaped from the Demon Territory, with the help of his World Will, he was able to determine the location of the Star Boundary in the vast universe and successfully return home.
However, at that time, it was because the Demon Territory wasn’t too far from the Star Boundary, so these two Universe Worlds were closely connected. Otherwise, Great Demon God wouldn’t have set his sights on the Star Boundary.
But now that he was so far away, the World Will was no longer useful, making it impossible for him to return to the Star Boundary.
The Myriad Sealed Insect had swallowed him and he had rushed out on his own, suddenly arriving at this place.
What the hell was that bug? Where was Zhang Ruoxi at this moment?
Without any clues, Yang Kai could only choose a random direction and try to find traces of Ruoxi, secretly praying that Ruoxi would also escape from the belly of the Myriad Sealed Insect. Otherwise, with such a monster, maybe even Open Heaven Stage could not escape if swallowed.
