Her self-disciple wasn’t only from training for ten days in the sword fight, it was also due to what happened after her Elder Jiang. Once again, she had a taste of her Maha Inheritance. Even though her cultivation hadn’t raised by much, her cultivation and actual fighting skills were much stronger than before.
Gu Liufeng released a breath and said, “Now, if you go to the hunting competition and there aren’t any major mishaps, nobody will be able to threaten you.”
“You guys were the one with groundless fears in the first place.” Hexi softly smiled and retorted, “I’ll go inside to wash up first, this afternoon, I plan to set out to Breaking Spirit Mountain.”
Breaking Spirit Mountain, as the name implied, was a place that ordinary people couldn’t enter and return from.
Breaking Spirit Mountain is a mountain range that stretches thousands of kilometers from south to north. Running across all three countries, it was a mountain range far more vast than Cang Mountain.
Breaking Spirit Mountain’s highest point was located in the middle of Jin Ling country. There, thick fog swirled around the mountain, all year and there were countless magic beasts that called the mountain home. The ranks of the magic beasts there were quite high, it could be said to be second only to those in the Magic Beast Forest.
Moreover, most of the magic beasts in Breaking Spirit Mountain had lost all rationality, they were completely savage. The magic beasts were cunning and treacherous in a completely different way than the ones in the Magic Beast Forest. The magic beasts residing here were even able to take the shape of a human, so normally, few people would willingly step onto the mountain.
However, because of how savage the magical beasts were, they would even occasionally come off the mountain to harm people. Therefore, the Elders from the four biggest influential families and the largest sects created a large array to prevent the magical beasts from coming down and prevent others from entering.
Afterwards, the four biggest sects suddenly opened up a relatively safe location at the top of the mountain one year. Inside, there were numerous magical beasts at sixth rank and lower which could be hunted, and any other magical beasts weren’t drawn to the location.
Every four years, a hunting competition would take place and everyone participating would be sent to this location via a teleportation array. Once they arrived, they would all kill the magical beasts. Every time they killed a magical beast, they would need to obtain an internal pill. This way, they would earn points. Whomever ended up with the most points would be declared the champion of that year’s competition.
The more they held this competition, the more Miluo Continent buzzed about it, so naturally, there were more and more martial artists competing each year.
This was because, not only would you obtain good achievements during the big hunting competition, you would also earn many of the large sects’ interest.
As for the elite disciples of the large sects, if they were able to perform exceptionally well, they would be able to receive great honor within the sect, earning them much more rewards and resources.
Jin Ling country is actually a very small country, so for the hunting competition to be held here was merely based on the geographical location of Breaking Spirit Mountain.
Therefore, regardless of whether it was a sect or the imperial family handling the event, they would each treat it as a major event. And the people of Jin Ling country who were able to receive an invitation were very few and far between.
After saying this, Hexi began walking inside the room. But, who knew that Wu Xin’s figure would suddenly flash and come forth.
Without waiting for Hexi to say anything, he stuffed the things in his hands toward Hexi’s and in a lowered voice, he said, “Wangfei, while you’re participating in the hunting competition, please wear this. During a crucial point, perhaps it can help you pass it.”
While saying these words, Wu Xin’s face seemed unsightly, he seemed to be full of discontentment and restlessness. But soon, his expression changed into sincerity as he asked Hexi this.
Hexi held the jade slip in her hand and inspected it. No matter how she looked at it, all she saw was an ordinary jade slip that was light green in color and held no peculiar points.
She then raised her head and looked at Wu Xin with a beseeching expression. She couldn’t help but sigh before saying, “Okay, I’ll accept it.”
