Fey Evolution Merchant - chapter 494
While Liu Jie was using the Hurricane Owlet Moths to conduct surveillance, Lin Yuan was overexerting himself by drawing out massive amounts of spiritual power from his body.
He was activating the Source Sand that was underwater so that it could smash the rocks and generate tiny sand grains.
Lin Yuan stomped his feet and sighed.
The hardness of the underwater rocks in the dimensional rift is really no joke. It greatly surpasses that of the purple and black soil in the abyss dimensional rift.
Back in the controlled Class 3 abyss dimensional rift, Lin Yuan had sent the Source Sand to dive 100 meters and tunnel through the deep sediments so as to preserve the generated gravel’s durability.
Unexpectedly, at 10 meters underwater, the rate at which the Source Sand was smashing the rocks was much slower.
It was extremely difficult for the Source Sand to generate gravel in such an environment.
Although some better results could be obtained through the use of ferromanganese plating, it was still far below Lin Yuan’s expectations.
Finally, Lin Yuan calculated the odds and decided to limit the Source Sand to a depth of one or two meters.
The deeper the water, the harder the rocks became.
If the Source Sand only generated gravel at a depth of only one or two meters, it would be able to almost keep up with Lin Yuan’s expectations.
Nonetheless, the Source Sand was generating a significantly greater amount of gravel than was ever expected of it by Lin Yuan in battle.
Lin Yuan’s spiritual power was being depleted three times faster than before.
Even if Blackie continuously injected spiritual power into him, Lin Yuan could feel that his well of spiritual energy was close to running dry.
After all, Lin Yuan was only a C-rank spirit qi professional.
When Liu Jie opened his eyes, Lin Yuan hastily asked him, “Big Brother Liu, what did the Hurricane Owlet Moths discover?”
Liu Jie’s expression clearly warned that he was about to unleash bad news.
“I’ve discovered the dimensional hub’s location. I also found evidence of life in this zone,” said Liu Je solemnly.
Lin Yuan’s expression flattened as well. Yet, he plastered on a smile and said, “That’s good news. We’re now three hours ahead of our initial schedule.” Lin Yuan paused for a moment before continuing. “Big Brother Liu, please send out two more Hurricane Owlet Moths. They are to slowly fly toward where the dimensional hub is.”
Liu Jie was stunned by Lin Yuan’s request, but he did what was asked of him.
Without hesitation, Lin Yuan activated the Spirit Qi Imprint, which had been accumulating spirit qi all this time.
The moment the Spirit Qi Imprint was set off, the Spirit Qi Imprint markings on Blackie lit up.
To both Liu Jie and Zhou Luo’s astonishment, a tsunami of spiritual power exploded from Lin Yuan’s body.
Lin Yuan directed the spiritual power which had burst forth from him into the Source Sand underneath him.
The Source Sand immediately started smashing the rocks in the ocean floor in the direction of the dimensional hub, as led by the Hurricane Owlet Moths.
With Lin Yuan inputting such an enormous amount of spirit qi into it, the Source Sand started to churn out gravel at the same rate it used to. It was completely capable of keeping up with the Hurricane Owlet Moths that were flying slowly.
After producing the two Hurricane Owlet Moths, Liu Jie ordered the Insect Queen, “Use Blast Recovery.”
The Insect Queen’s body was alight with many green glowing spots. A wave of green fluids sprayed out of its valves.
While he commandeered the Insect Queen’s Flesh-Mincing Blade Insect, Liu Jie continued updating Lin Yuan on the surveillance results.
“The enemy has about 70 spirit qi professionals who possess Platinum feys. There are at least 20 of them who own Diamond feys. Since my Hurricane Owlet Moths are clones that only have a portion of the genetic model, they lack fighting abilities. Thus, my Hurricane Owlet Moths did not trespass past the formation of the spirit qi professionals who own Diamond quality feys. They were unable to reach the central zone. Due to this, I have no clue what kind of powers are guarding the central zone.”
Liu Jie added one more statement, “I don’t recognize the spirit qi professionals spotted by the Hurricane Owlet Moths, but most of their contracted feys have never been seen before in the Radiance Federation.”
When Liu Jie spoke, his mask hid his expression.
However, unadulterated murderous intent was evident in his gaze.
Lin Yuan was not surprised by Liu Jie’s report on the situation.
When they discovered the mother lode of Spatial Magnets, Lin Yuan had already made a speculation.
The surveillance results only proved his guess to be accurate.
Liu Jie’s revelation of the enemy’s power added a new sense of pressure on Lin Yuan.
Even if the Gold I/Fantasy I Source Sand evolved into a Fantasy II, it would still pale in comparison to the level of a Platinum fey.
Frankly, Liu Jie’s Platinum/Fantasy Breed Insect Queen was only at the level of a Diamond fey.
Zhou Luo was a king-class expert and had the Diamond/Fantasy I Lava Dragon Lizard, putting him ahead of Lin Yuan and Liu Jie in terms of power.
Unfortunately, the Lava Dragon Lizard was just a defense-type fey and was inept at offense.
The discrepancy in fighting abilities between them and the enemy was vast.
Moreover, the enemy could also be hiding a greater power that was still unknown to them.
Lin Yuan touched the Extreme Token hanging around his neck. It looked like he would need to use it to secure victory this time.
Lin Yuan removed the Extreme Token from around his neck and said to Liu Jie and Zhou Luo, “Inside of this lies the attacking domain of an expert. The strength of this attacking domain is sufficient to break the red crystal spiders that the Mother of Bloodbath threw at us on the deserted island.”
Lin Yuan was utterly unaware of the Moon Empress’ power.
All he knew was that she was a greatly venerated Class 5 Creation Master and that she possessed overwhelming power.
Since the Moon Empress was able to help the Mother of Bloodbath with its World Cleansing, she had to be more powerful than the Mother of Bloodbath.
Lin Yuan chose to reveal his trump card to Liu Jie and Zhou Luo now because he wanted to let them in on his plan and because he wanted to raise their morale during such a quagmire.
