Qin Yun returned to where Xiao YueMei was and told her what had happened.
"There are too many of these turtles. If we kill them all, we won't be able to store all of them in our storage spirit artifacts!" Xiao Yue Mei frowned: "From your description, they are all very strong, fighting must be very taxing."
"That's right... However, the giant tortoise's value is very high, the tortoise shell can emit lightning and there might be something inside that is worth selling. I estimate that it would be worth at least a hundred thousand crystal coins!" Qin Yun felt that it was extremely unfortunate.
"Are you sure these turtles can sell for that much?" When Xiao Yue Mei heard that it was worth one hundred thousand crystal coins each, she was also very moved, her beautiful eyes flashed with light.
Qin Yun looked in the direction the gigantic turtle was heading towards and said with a nod, "It should be! These giant turtles need to absorb spirit energy first and then gather it within their bodies. Only through transformation can they condense the thunder attributed internal energy and then release it for attack."
"At that time, I only need to go over and throw down the Evil Suppression Talisman to suppress the Evil Soul within the turtle's body. After that, you just need to erase those Evil Souls and it wouldn't be too strenuous for us to fight."
Xiao Yue Mei heard this and was moved, nodding in agreement. If it was really that valuable, after selling it, they could get a large amount of Crystal Coins!
In the future, if she wanted to completely get rid of the Tian Xiao Imperial Family, she would also need to accumulate a large amount of wealth.
"Alright, then I'll cooperate with you!"
After convincing Xiao Yue Mei, Qin Yun brought her forward and approached the gigantic tortoises. He then placed her on the ground.
He floated in the air and said, "Yue Mei, when you hear my shout, quickly rush over."
Xiao Yue Mei nodded, took out her sword and looked at the sky.
A thunderous rumble came from up ahead. The giant turtles were currently pushing their way forward in a majestic manner, one after another.
Qin Yun used Flame Cloud Steps in the air as he grabbed a handful of Evil Suppressing Talisman. After arriving above the gigantic tortoises, he accurately sprinkled it over multiple spots to cover the gigantic tortoises.
After the gigantic turtles were covered with talismans, they suddenly fell asleep. The evil spirit that was attached to the gigantic turtle's body was suppressed by the power of the Evil Suppression Talisman and it couldn't control the gigantic turtle's body for a short period of time.
"Yue Mei, do it!" Qin Yun shouted.
The giant turtles that were covered by the Evil Suppression Talismans could actually move as well. This meant that the giant turtles could break through the Evil Suppression Talismans' power.
The Evil Suppression Talisman could only delay them for a short period of time.
Qin Yun dived to the ground and controlled a few small daggers to stab into the gigantic turtle's head. He inserted a stream of mind energy into it and wiped out the evil spirit's within.
Xiao Yue Mei controlled a longsword and a few short swords, quickly killing evil spirit's.
The 80 giant turtles were killed by their combined forces in an instant!
"Your Evil Suppression Talisman is really useful. You should have used it when we were being attacked earlier." Xiao Yue Mei giggled and jumped onto the back of a giant turtle, saying: "Is there really something inside the giant turtle's body?"
As Qin Yun released his mental force into the gigantic turtle's body, he could sense a very pure mass of mind energy.
"The strength of the giant tortoise actually surpasses many ghost beasts, it's just that it's movements are slow, the evil spirit's inside are very powerful, that's why it can cultivate and form Spirit Crystals within the giant tortoise's body. This should be the rumored Soul Essence!"
He used the power of his primordial spirit and penetrated into the giant turtle's body, pulling out a green crystal, which was as beautiful as a pearl.
"It really is the Soul Essence!" Xiao Yue Mei was shocked, "This can be used to refine spirit essence artifacts!"
A Spirit Essence Artifact is a spirit artifact that was suitable for controlling with mental power. Supposedly, when refining it, a large amount of mental energy would need to be integrated into it.
"This kind of item is very rare, please don't sell it. Hurry up and take it out." Xiao Yue Mei was very excited: "If you have a spirit essence weapon, using the Imperial Spirit Technique to control it, you will be more proficient."
Qin Yun used the power of his primordial spirit to extract all the Soul Essence from the gigantic turtles.
Even if they couldn't take away the corpses here, it didn't matter because they had already obtained the most precious essence.
Soon, Qin Yun obtained eighty Soul Essences.
"I'll leave the Soul Essence with you for now. Later, I'll refine another treasure with you." Xiao Yue Mei laughed happily: "You better remember, don't use it yourself!"
Qin Yun said with a smile, "Don't worry!"
He looked at the giant turtles and felt that it was a pity that he could not bring them with him. They took up a lot of space in his storage ring, so he could only keep them here.
Xiao Yue Mei was very suspicious, she stood on top of a giant turtle's shell, looking at the direction that the giant turtle came from, and said: "Why are there so many ghost beasts? And they're coming for us!"
The giant turtles had pushed down a large number of giant trees along the way. Looking at it now, it was very flat.
Qin Yun said with a frown, "These gigantic turtles are water turtles. Did they come from the Cloud Dragon River? Take out the mirror and check if there are any more beasts nearby."
After Xiao Yue Mei took out the mirror, she laughed: "There is only one ghost beast nearby and no group of ghost beasts nearby, it seems like we killed them all!"
After saying that, she sprinted forward.
Qin Yun followed behind her and looked at the Evil Suppression Talisman in his storage space. He muttered, "There are seventy of them. I only used thirty or so just now."
Not long after, they heard the sound of surging river water in front of them.
"Clound Dragon River is indeed in front!" Xiao Yue Mei giggled: "That ghost beast seems to be hiding in the river!"
Qin Yun also saw the Cloud Dragon River. It was ten thousand meters wide and had a torrential current. The waves churned as strong gales blew incessantly. It was a terrifying sight to behold!
Xiao Yue Mei also slowed down her steps, the smile on her face gradually became serious.
"The Cloud Dragon River is so scary …" Allegedly, the Cloud Dragon Mountain Range is located on the other side of the Cloud Dragon River. Xiao Yue Mei's eyes were filled with curiosity.
Qin Yun had also heard of such rumors. If he wanted to pass through the Cloud Dragon Mountain Range and head for Martial Desolate land, he would have to pass through this great and dangerous river.
"Qin Yun, look at the river. There's so much steam!" Xiao Yue Mei said.
The water caused a lot of fumes, which was also a normal phenomenon.
However, the mist in front of them was gradually increasing. It was extremely strange.
Xiao Yue Mei took out the mirror and shouted, "A spirit body is coming from the river!"
When Qin Yun heard this, he immediately leaped over and grabbed Xiao Yue Mei before he leaped into the sky.
The surface of the river suddenly splashed out with a huge wave, violently smashing against the riverbank!
Something jumped out from the river and landed right where Xiao Yue Mei was.
It was a pitch black beast!
It was a giant lion over ten meters long. it's body was pitch black and the mane of it's neck was extremely thick. it's eyes were a deep brown and it breathed out mist from it's mouth.
"Roar!" The giant black lion opened it's mouth and roared into the air, spitting out a giant fireball!
