ZY - Chapter 57- 4 Ocean 8 Wasteland Map

I reached out and the scroll's stats appeared, which astonished me—

Four Ocean Eight Wasteland Map (level1 treasure): An ancient scroll that carries the power of four ocean eight wastelands. At the current level, can be used to absorb damage once. Required level: 30.

------

Treasure!

A new concept had appeared! In the past, Destiny games did not have treasure-type tools. This meant that this was different from equipment and had to be used actively. Was the effect of this Four Ocean Eight Wasteland Map able to help me block damage? Moreover, it was only level 1, so would it level up?

I was stunned and immediately summoned the system elf. The beautiful secretary floated out, her pair of snow white legs slightly curved as she stopped in front of me. "Master, why did you summon Little Shu?" 

"What are the settings for treasures, Little Shu?" I asked.

She lowered her head and looked at the Four Ocean Eight Wasteland Map in my hands. A bunch of data then flashed in her eyes. She smiled. "Since master has obtained a treasure, then the treasure system has been unlocked. Illusionary Moon does indeed have a treasure type. Players can refine their treasures to help fight and support them. After you, master, bind to your treasure, it will use a small amount of experience to level up. The higher the level, the stronger it is."

"Do treasures have different grades?" I asked.

Her beautiful eyes looked at the Four Ocean Eight Wasteland Map and she shook her head. "No difference, but the strength and use are different. Don't worry, master; I can sense that the one that you get isn't a normal level of strength!"

"So that is the case. Thank you, Little Shu!"

"En!"

She nodded her head and flew into my system space before disappearing.

------

Next was to drip my blood and bind to it.

I raised my hand, biting my finger and dripping fresh blood onto the treasure!

Shua~

A golden ray of light burst forth, and after merging with my drop of blood, the Four Ocean Eight Wasteland Map became much bigger as if the world inside was about to appear. Many ancient mountains, wide oceans...This small scroll could contain them all. My heart seemed to be connected with the treasure and it seemed like it had become much bigger.

This thing was a gem!

In the interface, below the skill column, a treasure column appeared. There was an icon of a scroll, which was the Four Ocean Eight Wasteland Map. 

Activate and use it!

Shua~

Four Ocean Eight Wasteland Map seemed like it had a mind of its own and instantly appeared in front of me to help me block the damage. The world in the scroll moved slowly, as if it was about to swallow everything in the world. The things in front of me were lifelike and they made me feel like things were actually happening.

"D*mn..."

After keeping the Four Ocean Eight Wasteland Map, I was really pumped up. I stood on the spot and did not expect this new setting to be so shocking for me. In the past, when I was developing the game, I only came into contact with the data and that was the only thing I cared about. I did not join in the game-planning and settings, but now it seemed like I really misunderstood those in the planning department. They really had some skills and were not idiots.

I looked at the treasure column and Four Ocean Eight Wasteland Map entered a cooldown state. It could only be used roughly a minute later.

To block some damage, this treasure was amazing!

Who would care? Level up first!

I cleared the last bit of items in the furnace. When I fought the remnant souls once more and killed them, I gained 10% less experience. This 10% entered the Four Ocean Eight Wasteland Map, and with a shua, it lit up to refine the experience into one of its own.

It seemed that the price I must pay for refining treasures was a slow training speed, but it was definitely worth it. A treasure provided power for a player which far exceeded any equipment.

This investment was worth it.

Thus, I trained quickly, and in less than ten minutes, I finished the remaining souls and reached level 33 67%.

At this moment, an undead cavalry's voice came from outside. "Deacon, there has been no movement inside for a long time; has July Wildfire already perished? Why don’t... I open it and take a look?"

"No!"Elder Feng said seriously. "Young Master is definitely not dead. Stop spouting nonsense."

"Hahaha~"

Zhuang Huai Shui laughed."Elder Feng, calm down; it was just a conjecture. Who knows whether or not July Wildfire can kill that ancient soul? What if? Based on what I can see, there’s been no movement inside. We should open the seal. Although it is too late, we should handle his corpse, right?"

"You..."Elder Yun was furious.

Right at that moment, I kicked the furnace door open and looked at Zhuang Huai Shui coldly. "Deacon, you are probably going to get disappointed. The ancient remnant soul was too weak and I purified it. As for your bunch of disciples, they’re so weak for an ancient soul to scare them off from entering!"

"Hahaha~"

Elder Feng heaved a sigh of relief and burst into laughter. "Right! The young master is right. Such a weak remnant soul was able to terrify your top disciples. The Land of Reincarnation has the most disciples, but there is no one to take over. What a joke! Hahaha~"

"You!"

Zhuang Huai Shui's face turned green in extreme fury.

Elder Yun touched his mustache and smiled. "The Land of Reincarnation has many disciples and many people with talent and bloodline, like Lei Ling and Long Yilan with his ancient bloodline. However, no one can exceed our young master. I think that the deacon should send a few from the Land of Reincarnation over to the Wind Cloud Platform so that the two of us can teach them for someone to take over from you next time. Hahaha~"

These two elders were actually just mocking him.

Zhuang Huai Shui's face was now ashen white , but his eyes ran up and down to look at me. "July Wildfire, I heard that the ancient remnant soul was guarding a treasure. It seems like... Since you defeated it, that treasure should be in your hands, right?"

I understood what he meant, so I replied, "I only purified the soul but didn't see any treasure. Is what the deacon is saying true? Unfortunately... why don’t I go in and search for it?"

"No need."Zhuang Huai Shui waved his hand. "The Land of Reincarnation cultivators will investigate the furnace; you don't have to do anything."

It seemed like he had not given up.

I smiled and said, "My job in clearing this furnace is over, but I am still bored. Deacon, I want to clear another. Can I?"

"Okay."

Zhuang Huai Shui felt bitter but could only swallow it. He pointed to another and said, "This furnace hasn't been cleared in a long time, but the remnant souls inside are really strong. Normal disciples don't dare to challenge them. Since you are confident, then go."

I nodded.

"Young master, be careful!" cautioned Elder Feng.

I smiled. "Don't worry; I’ll be fine!"

I did not fear the remnant souls in the Soul Refining Furnace anymore. Now, I had such a treasure like the Four Ocean Eight Wasteland Map, so I naturally had nothing to fear. I could block a strong attack. This effect seemed normal, but when used, it could resolve a killing move. The usefulness was just unimaginable!

------

Creak~

The second furnace opened and a corner of the seal was undone. I jumped in and then it closed automatically. Elder Yun and Elder Feng continued to guard. Zhuang Huai Shui laughed coldly. "Although July Wildfire is talented and strong, he is too confident. To challenge the remnant souls of two furnaces consecutively, is he not afraid that he may get unlucky?"

Elder Feng smiled coldly. "We all cultivate laws of death; do you think we will end up meeting ghosts?"

One sentence made Zhuang Huai Shui speechless.

As for me, I walked toward the center of the furnace and started clearing out the items. Those stubborn souls hidden in the bones appeared. Their vengeful energy was too strong and they were powerful, such that the furnace could not refine them. Thus, they could only rely on us to defeat them and purify them.

Leveling began once more.

"Ah Li."

On the outside, Ah Fei's voice spread in. "Has the Wind Cloud Platform's countdown begun?"

"No."I shook my head. "What are you rushing for?"

He laughed. "I’m not; I’m just telling you that I am level 30 and am using the Snake Staff; I am so strong now!"

"Continue bragging..."I laughed. "Your level is still too low. Level 30 is not enough. Level up quickly. The highest level in Linchen County should be level 35, right?"

"En, Lin Xi and Feng Canghai are both level 35."

"So quick..."I frowned. I was now trying to reach level 34, but people were already at level 35. It seemed like my storyline wasted too much time, while they just spent it on killing monsters to obtain experience.

However, it was okay. Once I met these top Linchen County members, I would most probably be there as a boss. With the increase in stats, I could insta-kill them, so there was nothing to worry about.
