Jiang Feng was not a savior.
But anyone with a little bit of humanity left in them would be enraged at what was happening.
The only ones that would not be moved by the scene were perhaps the hypocrites from the Divines.
With the enlarged Jingu Staff in his hand, he slammed it at the Ginseng Fruit Tree.
"You thief! How dare you!"
The kindly old man Zhenyuanzi became vicious at this instant. He did not look like he was a God. He looked like he was a Demon.
In the blink of an eye, he came next to Jiang Feng and slammed at Jiang Feng with his palm.
"Talisman of Invulnerability!"
Seeing Zhenyuanzis attack, he quickly used the Talisman of Invulnerability.
Talisman of Invulnerability: Spiritual Level Talisman. Becomes invulnerable within 1 minute after use.
After he had used the Talisman of Invulnerability, Jiang Feng was also slammed onto the ground by Zhenyuanzi.
Seeing that Qiu Si was heading toward Jiang Feng with the Divine Dragon Sword in hand, Ling Feiyu summoned her Unicorn and rode on it as she flew toward Qiu Si.
The Unicorn fired a bolt of lightning at Qiu Si.
Qiu Si was forced to take a step back and he looked at Ling Feiyu as he stood on top of the Blazing Eagle.
Ling Feiyu took out her Jewel of the Snow Soul as she stood on top of the Monster Cloud, and said to Qiu Si coldly, "Your opponent is me!"
"Do you know that hes the Inheritor of the Shifters and our enemy?" Qiu Si said as he looked at Ling Feiyu.
"Enemy? Haha" Ling Feiyu laughed. "All I saw was that God using babies as roots and human flesh and blood as nutrients to plant such an evil tree for his own purposes. What is the difference between a God and Demon then? The Gods that act this way would only make us sick! On the other hand, the Inheritor of the Shifters is just! He is better than you Gods a hundred, thousand-fold!"
"This is just a game! They wouldnt really die!" Qiu Si said to Ling Feiyu with a frown.
"A game? The NPCs in this game are sentient and have a life! Perhaps to them, we are the NPCs! If I want to have you become the trees nutrients, are you willing to do it? Answer me, will you accept it?!" The more Ling Feiyu spoke, the colder her expression became. Who would have guessed that the most beautiful woman in the game would become this angry?
"The Gods are the Gods. The Shifters are the Shifters. The Gods are always right, and the Shifters are always wrong! Move aside, I dont want to kill you!" Qiu Si said to Ling Feiyu.
"Why dont you give it a try then?!" Ling Feiyu said coldly and waved her hand. The Jewel of the Snow Soul attacked Qiu Si as a white mist enveloped it.
Just when Ling Feiyu and Qiu Si were fighting, Jiang Feng had entered into the Berserk status and confronted the God, Zhenyuanzi.
But he was not attacking Zhenyuanzi. He kept on using his Jingu staff to attack the Ginseng Fruit Tree.
Each time he attacked the Ginseng Fruit Tree, Zhenyuanzi would slam him away. He would then crawl up from the ground and attack the Ginseng Fruit Tree again.
He had one minutes worth of invulnerability. Zhenyuanzi could not kill him even though he was a God!
Although Zhenyuanzi could not kill him, each of his attacks would cause pain to flood through his body, making him feel as if his bones were being smashed to smithereens.
His sense of pain had been increased to above ninety percent. As such, each time when he was slammed into the ground, he felt as if he was rammed by a car back in reality.
At the moment, he had lost many of his dragon scales as blood flowed out from his wounds. Fortunately, while he was bleeding, he did not lose any HPs thanks to the Talisman of Invulnerability.
His giant dragon body was slightly arched as he stared at Zhenyuanzi.
"You dare to stand against a God? You must have a death wish!" Zhenyuanzi turned his open palm into a closing fist, and a few rocks suddenly appeared around Jiang Feng from the ground and struck him.
"God? You planted a tree with bones and fed it with flesh and blood! In my eyes, you Gods are even viler than the Demons!"
"This is the Caohuan Pill! Gods can become stronger after eating them. There would only be peace when the Gods are powerful! So what if a few must sacrifice themselves? They should consider it an honor to be able to sacrifice themselves for the gods!" As a God, Zhenyuanzi could understand his speech. He smiled coldly as he heard Jiang Fengs words.
"Including the newborns?" Jiang Feng stared straight at Zhenyuanzi as he slowly lifted his head.
"They were given life by the Gods. If the Gods want them to die, then they will die!" Zhenyuanzi looked at Jiang Feng with disgust.
Looking at the expiring duration of the Talisman of Invulnerability, he clenched his fist around the Jingu Staff as he looked at the Ginseng Fruit Tree.
He waved the Jingu Staff and pointed it at Zhenyuanzi and said coldly, "I will uproot this tree at another time!"
With that, he used his Blink skill and appeared on top of the Monster Cloud. He took out the Teleportation Cauldron. He enlarged his dragon claw and grabbed at Ling Feiyu, who only had a slither of life left, and jumped into it.
"You think you can escape after stealing my Caohuan Pill from me?!"
When Zhenyuanzi saw that JIangfeng was going to leave, he quickly used his skill and smashed at the Teleportation Cauldron.
The skill landed on the Teleportation Cauldron. Although it had been thrown into the air by the attack, the teleportation was not canceled. After it traveled in the air for a few moments, it disappeared.
"Master Zhenyuan, looks like we can no longer organize the banquets for the time being. Weve been exposed!" Qiu Si said as he came next to Zhenyuanzi.
"If that is the case, it is pointless to let those outside live. We have lost so many fruits, we need to have them replaced!" Zhenyuanzi said.
He then left the Wuzhuang Taoist Temple and used his Sleeved Heaven and Earth skill to collect all the players that were still farming for the Invitation Letters. He then threw them all into the cave underneath the Ginseng Fruit Tree.
Next, painful screams came from within.
Wangyou Peak, close to Nanhai City.
The very space on top of Wangyou Peak began to ripple, and a giant cauldron fell on top of it.
The thunderous sound of a crash shocked the birds and animals into escaping everywhere.
The cauldrons lid was opened up. Jiang Feng and Ling Feiyu jumped out from within.
Jiang Feng felt that his stomach was churning, and he vomited blood as soon as he exited.
"Damn it Why was the game designed to be so realistic, vomiting blood"
Jiang Feng could not hold his sarcasm back as he wiped away the blood from his mouth.
"Are you alright?" Ling Feiyu looked at the Teleportation Cauldron, then turned and asked Jiang Feng, who had shrunk into a small dragon.
Hearing her words, Jiang Feng put away the Teleportation Cauldron and walked toward Ling Feiyu, "How did you know that I am the Shifters Inheritor?"
He remembered that when he took out the Jingu Staff at Wuzhuang Taoist Temple, Ling Feiyu mentioned something along the lines of, I knew it, youre the Shifters Inheritor.
From that, he knew that Ling Feiyu had already found out about his real identity.
Ling Feiyu looked at Jiang Feng who had turned into a little snake and said something to her, she frowned and replied, "I dont understand what you are saying!"
Jiang Feng gave Ling Feiyu a look, then took out and consumed the Polymorph Pill. He had something he wanted to ask Ling Feiyu, so he needed to communicate with her.
"I said, how did you know that Im the Shifters Inheritor?" Jiang Feng asked Ling Feiyu after he polymorphed into human form.
"Simple. Though you had dyed your hair black, there were still a few strands of silver hair. Though you were wearing a mask, I could still see your red eyes when the light shines a certain way. And your attack is very high, only an inheritor has such power. Other than the Shifters Inheritor, I dont know anyone that would fit all three criteria," Ling Feiyu said. "However, I didnt know that the Shifters Inheritor would also be a player, am I right? Jiang Feng?"
"I hope that you wont leak this out and help me hide my identity," Jiang Feng said coldly.
When he entered Wuzhuang Taoist Temple, Qiu Si did not check Jiang Fengs stats so he did not know that he was really Jiang Feng. Even if he knew, all Ling Feiyu needed to say was that he had been eaten by the Ginseng Fruit Tree. Then, Jiang Feng and the Shifters Inheritor would not be linked anymore.
As for Xiao Batian, Ba Tianxiao, and Luo Wushuang, their memories had been hidden by the Saintly Artifact, the Earth Book in Wuzhuang Taoist Temple. Even if they were revived, they would not know what had happened in the temple.
That meant that only Ling Feiyu knew his true identity. As long as Ling Feiyu did not say anything about it, no one would know who he was.
"I want to go take a look at the Ancient City of the Shifter Emperor. If you agree, I will choose to forget what happened earlier." Ling Feiyu then continued to say, "Im not trying to make a deal with you. Im simply curious about the Ancient City. You can refuse, and I will still forget what happened before this!"
"Alright!" If she wanted to simply take a look at the Ancient City, he did not think that it would be that big of a deal. He opened the management panel for the Ancient City and created a Town Portal Scroll to the Ancient City of the Shifter Emperor, and gave it to her. "Since youre not a Shifter, nor a resident of the Ancient City, you would not be able to use the Town Portal skill to go there. You can use this scroll to teleport over."
"Alright," Ling Feiyu accepted the scroll, then sent him a Friend Request. She then used the Town Portal Scroll and made her way to the Ancient City.
Jiang Feng looked at the Friend Request in front of him hesitantly but accepted it in the end.
Since she knew of his true identity, perhaps he could find a use for her in the future.
"Time to go back and finish the quest!"
Although he did not destroy the Ginseng Fruit Tree, he did manage to get some Ginseng Fruits and that would be sufficient to complete Uncle Huas quest. As for the other herbs, all he needed was to have Uncle Fu buy them through the Imperial Dragon Auction House.
With that, he used the Town Portal Skill and headed toward the Ancient City of the Shifter Emperor.
