Legendary Armament Canon - Chapter 222 - Soaring Strength, Qin Emperor’s Reward (2)
Chapter 222 Soaring Strength, Qin Emperor’s Reward (2)
Speaking of which, Great Wei had contributed a lot to Zhou Shu.
Back then, when they had traveled thousands of miles to Great Xia, they had lost the two prefectures to Great Xia. In the end… Zhou Shu was conferred the title of marquis. Later on, Great Wei’s Imperial Preceptor Xiao Shunzhi had sacrificed his own life to allow Zhou Shu’s Astounding Heavenly Eighteen Swords Technique to reach perfection. Of course, Shen Yue had also sacrificed himself to help Zhou Shu raise his cultivation level.
It was the same this time. They had risked the lives of the entire diplomatic mission to summon demonic beasts. Zhou Shu didn’t know about the others, but he knew that he had made a killing this time!
The moment the demonic beasts attacked, Zhou Shu had already thrown himself into slaying them.
Although the spiritual essence cultivation he revealed wasn’t high, his demon-slaying skills were adept, and he had killed many demonic beasts.
The Astounding Heavenly Eighteen Swords Technique, the initial reward from the Great Destroyer Sword, had already reached perfection. Now that he had used it to kill demonic beasts, the Legendary Armament Canon increased his cultivation level.
After killing a large number of demonic beasts, his spiritual essence cultivation had directly broken through to the fifth rank of the Martial Dao. Furthermore, he had already advanced a lot on the path of the fifth rank.
If not for Great Qin’s quick reaction, Zhou Shu felt that he could have broken through to the fourth rank…
Apart from his own use of the Great Destroyer Sword, Great Xia’s diplomatic mission had also completed many kills.
On this diplomatic mission, the members of Great Xia’s diplomatic mission were mainly equipped with Hundred Refinements Ring Pommel Sabers, Horse Slaying Sabers, and Spring Embroidered Sabers. This was a deliberate arrangement Zhou Shu had made.
The Heavenly Saber Art, rewarded by the Hundred Refinements Ring Pommel Saber, didn’t improve much this time.
This was because his Heavenly Saber Art had already reached a very high level, and it was extremely difficult to level up.
Correspondingly, with every improvement, his saber technique greatly increased.
The initial benefit from the Horse Slaying Saber was the Golden Bell Shield Technique. When he woke up from the Wang Xin dream, his Golden Bell Shield Technique was already at the twelfth level.
This time, the completed kills from the Horse Slaying Saber was spiritual essence cultivation.
Combined with the feedback from the Great Destroyer Sword, Zhou Shu’s spiritual essence cultivation had skyrocketed.
The Visualization of the Five Mountains’ True Form, rewarded by the Spring Embroidered Saber, was the one that benefited the most other than his spiritual essence cultivation.
His Five Mountains’ True Form Visualization had always been at a relatively basic level. This time, the benefits from the Spring Embroidery Saber had allowed his Visualization of the Five Mountains’ True Form to take a huge step forward. His divine sense had almost doubled!
If he fully released his divine sense at this moment, he would be able to cover a radius of 30 feet around him! Other than that, Chen Ji’s Green Dragon Crescent Blade and Yin Chengshan’s Flaming Sunset Saber had also completed a large number of kills.
His cultivation of the Iron Smelting Hands had improved tremendously, and the Unparalleled Benevolence divine art had also increased immensely.
After half a day of fighting, Zhou Shu’s overall strength had nearly doubled! Great Wei, thank you for all the benefits.
Zhou Shu couldn’t help sighing. Every time he met people from Great Wei, he would be able to make a harvest.
Xiao Shunzhi even let him kill him twice.
He had sacrificed himself to give Zhou Shu lots of benefits…
After checking the feedback from the Legendary Armament Canon, Zhou Shu took out the items Yang Hong had given him.
Yang Hong had taken Zhou Shu’s Mo Mei Sword and then went on a mission.
Even though he was beaten up badly, he didn’t delay his mission.
Zhou Shu looked at the different types of hair that Yang Hong had collected. Every single one of them had their names and origins marked. Zhou Shu gave Yang Hong a thumbs up in his heart.
No one knew how Yang Hong did it, but he had actually collected so many people’s hair.
He got them from diplomatic missions from the various nations, from officials to Forging Masters. There were at least dozens of strands of hair.
Zhou Shu took a look and then put away the hair.
He had collected these not because he had a special fetish but to prepare materials for his Zhuang Zhou Butterfly Dream Technique.
However, he didn’t plan to enter the dreams for the time being.
Becoming someone else in a dream seemed very pleasurable, but this experience could also make people break down.
Even though his Visualization of the Five Mountains’ True Form had improved greatly, he didn’t want to experience the feeling of being invested and then separated after waking up from the dream for now.
“Zhou Shu, the people from Great Qin are here.”
Zhou Shu had just finished counting his gains when Yin Wuyou’s voice sounded in his ear.
After opening the door, Zhou Shu immediately saw a group of soldiers from Great Qin constantly moving things into the courtyard where the Great Xia diplomatic mission was staying
They were carrying large boxes that were half the height of a person. There were around thirty large boxes that were quickly moved into the courtyard.
Then without a word, these soldiers turned and left.
“This is…” Zhou Shu and the others were stunned.
Chen Ji held the Green Dragon Crescent Blade in his hand and carefully used the tip of the blade to open a box.
The box opened, and a dazzling golden light shone in everyone’s eyes.
The box was filled with gold bars.
There were at least several thousand taels of gold in this box!
“Great Qin, what’s the meaning of this?”
“Is this our reward for helping them slay demonic beasts?”
Everyone was discussing fervently.
“Open all the boxes,” Zhou Shu instructed.
Seeing that there was no danger in the boxes, Chen Ji ordered the guards to open them.
In these boxes, other than gold, there were all sorts of jewelry, calligraphy, artworks, and so on.
Zhou Shu even saw a chest of forging materials.
In summary, there was only one thing worth noting about these items! “Is Great Qin that rich?” Zhou Shu couldn’t help exclaiming. During the demonic beast outbreak earlier, even though they had taken the initiative to help kill the demonic beasts on the streets, Great Qin had given them too many things.
Yin Wuyou glanced at Zhou Shu, slightly worried.
Last time, that bastard surnamed Xu brazenly tried to recruit Zhou Shu, and now, Great Qin sent over so much gold and jewels. What is the meaning of this?
Are you showing off that Great Qin is rich?
Great Xia isn’t poor either!
I… am rich too!
“Marquis Zhou, my lords.”
At this moment, an official from Great Qin walked in. He first bowed toward Zhou Shu and the others and then said, “His Majesty said that everyone extended a helping hand to Great Qin. This is a small gesture of our appreciation.
“After His Majesty is done settling this matter, he will reward you again..” “There’s more?” Zhou Shu said in surprise. He looked at the Great Qin official and said, “Sir, did His Majesty, the Qin emperor, only reward our Great Xia’s diplomatic mission, or did he also reward the other diplomatic?”
“Marquis Zhou,” the Great Qin official said very politely. “Only the diplomatic missions that lent a helping hand to Great Qin received His Majesty’s reward. Other than the Great Xia diplomatic mission, only the Great Liang diplomatic mission took the initiative to act. The rest of the diplomatic missions…”
The Great Qin official curled his lips in disdain. Those fellows are all cowards who had no balls.
The Great Liang diplomatic mission also received rewards?
They had picked up a bargain.
They weren’t slaying demonic beasts on the streets. They just felt that it was safer to follow the Great Xia diplomatic mission!
Zhou Shu did not pay much attention to this. “We were just trying to protect ourselves. The Qin emperor is too polite.”
“I still have official business to attend to. I will take my leave first.” The Great Qin official shook his head and bowed.
After the Great Qin official took his leave, Zhou Shu looked at the gold and jewelry, the corners of his mouth curling up slightly.
“General Chen,” Zhou Shu said. “Everyone contributed to the slaying.
“In terms of merits and rewards, everyone gets a share.”
Yin Wuyou secretly let out a sigh of relief when she saw Zhou Shu casually distribute these treasures to everyone.
Hmph, you want to poach our Great Xia’s Zhou Shu with just these things? Dream on! With me around, you can forget about succeeding! “Marquis, the great general wishes to see you.”
Just as everyone was happily splitting the treasures, a person suddenly appeared beside Zhou Shu.
This person was shockingly Meng Bai’s carriage driver. At the same time, he was also Meng Bai’s guard, who always stayed close to Meng Bai.
Zhou Shu was a bit surprised. This person is actually willing to leave Meng Bai’s side?
“What is it?” Zhou Shu asked.
“There’s something he wants to tell you,” the man said straightforwardly.
Zhou Shu’s mind stirred. Along the way, Meng Bai rarely displayed his presence. For him to look for Zhou Shu at this time, and even send this guard over to call him so urgently, could it be related to this demonic beast incident?
“Let’s go!” Zhou Shu no longer hesitated and said to the carriage driver and guard.
