A few days later.
A white light flashed across the rock wall of Jiang Chengxuan’s cave abode.
In an instant, the rock wall was immediately covered in a terrifying frost.
The temperature of the entire cave abode instantly plummeted.
In such an environment, even with Jiang Chengxuan’s cultivation, he still felt a bone-chilling cold.
Moreover, he had the feeling that his divine sense was about to be frozen, and there was a stabbing pain.
One could imagine what kind of terrifying scene would occur if that white light had landed on someone.
This was the first Level 2 spell that Jiang Chengxuan had mastered so far.
It was also the only spell that he had cultivated to Perfection.
The Divine Light of the Arctic!
That’s right, this was the effect achieved by the Perfection Spell Inheritance Jade.
Once the spell was cast, even a late-stage Foundation Establishment Realm cultivator would be severely injured.
The only problem was that this Divine Light of the Arctic consumed a lot of True Essence.
With the amount of True Essence he cultivated through Yin-Yang Five Elements True Technique, he could at most cast it twice.
Unless he had no choice, Jiang Chengxuan would not use it casually.
However, even without using the Divine Light of the Arctic, with the strength of Jiang Chengxuan’s True Essence and the mid-grade Level 2 Dharma artifact, the Purple Flame Sword, he could even fight a mid-stage Foundation Establishment Realm cultivator neck to neck.
From then on, Jiang Chengxuan finally had some foundation and abilities to protect himself in the Foundation Establishment Realm.
Next, Jiang Chengxuan calmed down and continued cultivating.
In the blink of an eye, another two years passed.
In the past two years, Jiang Chengxuan had pushed his cultivation to the bottleneck of the first level of the Foundation Establishment Realm.
This speed was not inferior to that of cultivators with Heaven Spiritual Roots.
In fact, it was even better…
Under normal circumstances, it would take at least seven or eight years for a cultivator who had just reached the Foundation Establishment Realm to reach the bottleneck of the first level.
For those who were even slower, it might take as many as ten years.
Then there was the jade slip with the making method of Level 2 talismans carved on it.
In his spare time, Jiang Chengxuan did not forget to study it.
He tried to draw some of the talismans.
For example, a high-grade Level 1 Golden Sword Talisman, a high-grade Level 1 Wood Armor Talisman, and a high-grade Level 1 Explosive Flame Talisman.
He successfully drew them all.
On the other hand, the low-grade Level 2 talismans.
For example, a low-grade Level 2 Rejuvenation Talisman, a low-grade Level 2 Cleave Talisman, and a low-grade Level 2 Spirit Gathering Talisman.
Jiang Chengxuan tried to draw it many times, but he did not succeed once.
Therefore, he understood that his accumulation in talisman making was probably not enough.
He needed more time to study it.
Unfortunately, practicing making talismans required huge resources.
At least with Jiang Chengxuan’s current situation, there was no way he could continue his practice.
He had to go out and seek more resources.
In addition, he had encountered a bottleneck in his cultivation recently. It was about time for him to go out.
Therefore, Jiang Chengxuan lifted the restriction of the cave abode, took out the Purple Flame Sword, and flew towards the core area of the Shen Immortal family.
After flying for a distance, Jiang Chengxuan suddenly saw a beam of light heading towards the core area of the Shen Immortal family not far from him.
The light seemed to have seen Jiang Chengxuan, so it changed directions in midair and flew straight at him.
When the light flew closer, Jiang Chengxuan saw that it was none other than Shen Ruyan, who he was more familiar with.
However, compared to three years ago, Shen Ruyan’s aura was obviously much stronger.
Did she break through?
As soon as this thought flashed across his mind, Shen Ruyan revealed herself and smiled at Jiang Chengxuan.
“Elder Jiang, long time no see. How have you been?”
Jiang Chengxuan smiled and nodded.
“Not bad. On the other hand, Elder Ruyan, after not seeing you for so long, you seem to have made a breakthrough in your cultivation. It’s really worth celebrating.”
“Hehe, you flatter me, Elder Jiang.”
Shen Ruyan was obviously in a very good mood. Hearing that, she smiled at Jiang Chengxuan and continued.
“By the way, Elder Jiang, where are you planning to go?”
Hearing this, Jiang Chengxuan did not hide it. Instead, he smiled and replied, “I plan to go to the Mission Hall to take a look and see if there are any suitable missions to take on.”
“Oh? Do you want a mission?”
Shen Ruyan’s eyes lit up slightly. Then, she said to Jiang Chengxuan, “I happen to know that there is a good mission recently and am thinking about finding someone to do it with me. Elder Jiang, are you interested?”
Jiang Chengxuan looked at Shen Ruyan in confusion and couldn’t help but ask, “Elder Ruyan, can you tell me in detail about the mission you mentioned?”
Shen Ruyan smiled and nodded.
“Let’s talk as we walk to the Mission Hall.
I haven’t accepted that mission yet. Elder Jiang, after listening to it, if you’re willing to do it with me, we’ll accept that mission together.”
Then, Shen Ruyan told Jiang Chengxuan generally what the mission was about.
It turned out.
Not long ago, outside a city called Canyon City within the jurisdiction of the Shen Immortal family, a few Level 2 demon beasts appeared out of nowhere.
They often attacked people who entered and left Canyon City.
So far, hundreds of mortals had died.
Some time ago, they led hundreds of Level 1 demon beasts to attack Canyon City.
Fortunately, Canyon City was protected by a Level 2 array, so nothing tragic had happened.
However, in this way, the entire Canyon City was basically under siege.
After all, in the entire Canyon City, the cultivator with the highest cultivation was only at the perfected Qi Refinement realm.
They could only rely on the Level 2 defensive array in Canyon City to withstand the attacks of those Level 2 and Level 1 demon beasts.
Therefore, yesterday, Canyon City sent a request for help to the Shen Immortal family, asking them to send Foundation Establishment cultivators to kill those demon beasts.
After hearing Shen Ruyan’s description of this mission, Jiang Chengxuan’s first reaction was suspicion, wondering if there was a conspiracy behind this.
After all, why would a few Level 2 demon beasts suddenly appear outside Canyon City with a group of Level 1 demon beasts.
No matter how he thought about it, this matter seemed strange.
There were many things that did not make sense.
Jiang Chengxuan was a person who wanted to be safe and did not like to take risks.
Therefore, his second reaction was that he definitely could not expose himself to such a dangerous situation.
However, at this moment, the system’s voice suddenly sounded in his mind.
