The Usage of the Crystal Core
Chapter 199 – The Usage of the Crystal Core
Big Yellow’s head was probably one of the hardest things in this world. The indestructible Nine Life Crystal Beast’s body shattered instantly because of the impact, it turned into pieces of crystals and scarred across the place.
“Kaka, so weak!”
Big Yellow was laughing out loudly. However, before he could finish his words, an expression of shock emerged on his face. He could see the broken crystal pieces assembling back to normal in an instant, making the Nine Life Crystal Beast whole again.
The Nine Life Crystal Beast was extremely angry. It roared out in fury as it dashed towards Big Yellow once again. This Nine Life Crystal Beast was a rare and unique life form, it didn’t possess any kind of innate ability, it only relied on its body’s strength. It could rip anything apart. Besides, the bright light that shot out from its body could cause devastating damage. Anyone who got hit by it would either die or suffer severe injuries.
“Damn it, don’t tell me it really has nine lives!”
Big Yellow felt somewhat depressed. He had never seen any living being like this before, it was simply something that couldn’t be killed.
“I don’t believe this.”
Big Yellow leapt forwards once again, and with a loud bang, he smashed the Nine Life Crystal Beast into pieces one more time. Big Yellow was never scared of anyone when it came to comparing body’s strength.
But in an instant, the shattered Nine Life Crystal Beast restored back to its original shape, which looked and felt exactly like it did before.
Big Yellow’s fury ignited. Just as the Nine Life Crystal Beast assembled back into one piece, he sprinted and smashed it into pieces one more time. This time, he stepped on some of the broken crystal pieces.
“Daddy will just step on you! Let’s see how you are going assemble once again!”
Big Yellow was pissed off. Jiang Chen, who was standing on the other side, was shaking his head, as he knew that this was useless.
Indeed, the broken pieces of crystals disappeared from under his feet, and in an instant, the Nine Life Crystal Beast assembled its whole body once again.
Big Yellow couldn’t remain calm any longer.
“Big Yellow, that’s useless, the Nine Life Crystal Beast is a unique life form in this world, you must kill it nine time before it completely dies. Even if you make it disappear from the face of the planet, it will still appear again.”
Jiang Chen said with a laugh.
“Damn it, this abnormal monster! Buddy, if you could absorb this ability, that would be awesome! Who would be able to kill you in the future if you had this ability?”
Big Yellow said.
“Kill it first before we discuss that.”
Jiang Chen waved his hand and asked Big Yellow to hurry up and finish the fight.
Big Yellow’s ears stood up, and he unleashed all his energy, then he once again leapt onto the monster.
Bang bang bang…
Smashing into it five times in a row, the Nine Life Crystal Beast had been killed 8 times. After being killed 8 times, the Nine Life Crystal Beast immediately turned around and started fleeing with extreme speed. This rare beast did possess basic intelligence, so after having been killed 8 times, it finally understood how powerful its opponent was. If it continued fighting, it would get itself killed here.
“Trying to run? Kaka!”
Big Yellow burst into laughter. It would be really shameful if he let a Mid Heavenly Core monster escape from him.
Another loud banging sound was heard. Although the Nine Life Crystal Beast was fast, it still couldn’t compare with Big Yellow. Once again, Big Yellow smashed into it, and it finally died.
Followed by a buzzing sound, the broken crystal pieces which were shattered around the place formed into a fist-sized crystal ball which floated in the middle of the air.
Big Yellow was startled.
“This is something good.”
Jiang Chen had quick hands. In an instant, he grabbed the crystal ball with his hand, then he said, “This is the Nine Life Crystal Beast’s crystal core, and it contains its real essence. It only drops upon completely killing the Nine Life Crystal Beast.”
“What’s the usage of this crystal core? Is it any different than a demon soul?”
Big Yellow asked.
“Huge difference! No human can absorb demon souls or devil souls without purifying them first, but this crystal core is different. According to the records in ancient books, the Nine Life Crystal Beast is born from nature after having absorbed natural energy essence. Not only does this crystal core contain huge amounts of pure energies, it also contains natural source energy, which allows any human cultivator to absorb it directly. The benefits it provides are even greater than what you can get from an energy vein. Don’t underestimate this tiny crystal core, if we can bring it out from here, then we can sell it for some good money.”
Jiang Chen said.
“So that’s what it is.”
Big Yellow’s ears fell down in an instant. He thought there would tremendous benefit from this crystal core, but he wasn’t attracted to it as he had the Dragon Horse bloodline, and could easily break through with help of his bloodline. Therefore, he didn’t have any need for this crystal core.
Jiang Chen wasn’t surprised by Big Yellow’s response. This crystal core was useless for him, but for all human cultivators, it was a priceless treasure.
“Finally, I know why there are so many people who are risking their lives in Inferno Hell. Besides, they also get to experience life and death situations. I’m sure there are a lot of Nine Life Crystal Beast’s here, we are going to make a fortune this trip!”
A bright smile appeared on Jiang Chen’s face. This really was a massive amount of wealth. However, getting the crystal cores was no easy task.
“If people have come here specifically for these crystal cores, I’ll call them idiots! If a human bumps into a Nine Life Crystal Beast which is at the same level as him, it will surely end with him dying! He would simply stand no chance at killing it. Even if he is one level higher than it, it will still be a risky fight.”
Big Yellow said. The Nine Life Crystal Beast possess nine lives, and it also posses powerful combat strength. No matter how powerful a person was, it would still be tiring to kill a monster nine times.
“That’s none of our business. The thing is, we are going to get his wealth no matter what. Since we are here, we need to get something good.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile on his face.
“Buddy, since you can easily absorb demon souls and devil souls, is this crystal core any different for you?”
Big Yellow asked in disdain.
“There is no difference for me. But, we can bring this with us and exchange it for great wealth. I’m sure there are a lot of people thirsting for it. Besides, we can give these crystal cores to our friends.”
Jiang Chen explained. There were countless benefits provided by the crystal cores. Worst case, they would just absorb the cores themselves.
“If there really are so many Nine Life Crystal Beasts here, why have we never seen any crystal cores before?”
Big Yellow asked.
“Are you an idiot? Only after realizing how strong these Nine Life Crystal Beasts are will you know how difficult it is to obtain a crystal core. Once someone gets one, they will usually use it themselves, and won’t easily show it to other people. Besides, while we were hanging around in the Qi Province, there were only a handful of people who had the courage to come here. And even if they do come here, people rarely make it out alive.”
Jiang Chen gazed at Big Yellow with despise. Usually, this dog was smart, so why couldn’t he understand this simple reasoning?
“You are an idiot! Hurry up and absorb this crystal core, let’s see if you can inherit the nine lives ability!”
Big Yellow’s eyes lit up as he stared at Jiang Chen. If Jiang Chen really was able to obtain this ability, that would awesome.
“You’re thinking too much. The Nine Life Crystal Beast is just an unique life form, they are not considered a true beast. Also, their nine lives is not really an innate ability. The crystal core is just an energy source. But, since you mentioned t, I’ll give it a try.
Jiang Chen swallowed the crystal core, then he circulated the Dragon Transformation skill and absorbed the entire crystal core in an instant. However, just as he had thought, the crystal core was just an energy source. A Mid Heavenly Core crystal core couldn’t even help him for a single Dragon Mark. As for the nine lives, that was just a wild dream.
“How is it?”
Big Yellow asked with anticipation.
“Nothing. But, the energy contained within this crystal core is really pure, and the natural energy essence can even strengthen my foundation, so I felt really refreshed after absorbing it. I think I’ll kill some more of these Nine Life Crystal Beasts. I’ll store away those low level crystal cores, and absorb the high level ones. If I can absorb them together with some devil or demon souls, not only can it increase my combat strength and cultivation level, they can also strengthen my foundation and help me maintain a strong foundation when I break through to the Divine Core realm.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes lit up. The effects of the crystal core to him were really great. He previously consumed the Five Elemental Pill to strengthen his foundation, preventing it from being shaken upon leveling up too quickly. The more advanced his cultivation became, the more he would need to strengthen his foundation.
And this crystal core could give him this result. It was like it was specially prepared for Jiang Chen.
“Damn it, why does benefits always go to you? This master dog never gets anything good!”
Big Yellow said with a depressed tone.
“Big Yellow, you possess the noble Dragon Horse bloodline, it’s the most privileged existence in this world. Not only are you handsome and unconventional, mighty and majestic, you can even break through while you’re sleeping! You’re simply the mightiest existence in this world, even I have to throw myself down at your feet in admiration. You don’t need help from these crystal cores, am I right?”
Jiang Chen used the most effective way to handle Big Yellow, he just kept flattering him, making him happy and excited. Saliva was dripping all over the place, and Big Yellow’s head was raised up high.
“Buddy, you really know me well! The master dog is the mightiest being in this world, of course I don’t need these tiny things!”
Big Yellow stood up on his legs like a human and turned around.
“Alright, let’s begin our journey in Inferno Hell. I suppose this place is only the outer perimeter, so let’s move out from this abyss and start going towards the depths of Inferno Hell. It’s better if we could bump into someone so we can learn more about this place.”
Jiang Chen said.
Big Yellow nodded his head.
The duo leapt forwards and start flying in a straight line away from the abyss. In front of them, there was a grayish desolated area with rocks scarred all over the place. There were also some thick woods, and some strange plants growing within.
“The place is filled with all kinds of demon and devil energies. I can also sense the energies of the Nine Life Crystal Beasts. Foul monsters are everywhere, we need to be extra careful.”
Jiang Chen reminded Big Yellow. The Evil Devil and the Nine Life Crystal Beast were just some appetizers, the real dangers of Inferno Hell was still ahead of them.
“No matter what kind of foul demons or devils come, they will flee immediately upon bumping into the master dog… No, they will worship me, they will throw themselves down at my feet and admire my mightiness!”
Big Yellow became narcissistic again.
