Complete Martial Arts Attributes - Chapter 2030
2030 Wang Teng, You Set Me Up Again! (3)
Damba and Rao Ying weren’t dead. However, they were seriously injured and were unconscious.
Having lost two heaven-stage martial warriors and still bearing traces of Shadow Power within their bodies, which they couldn’t expel, their combat capabilities were significantly diminished.
With this level of power, they were no match for Wang Teng and his group.
However, they were not willing to leave without a fight.
The ancient architectural complex surely held immense benefits, and everyone desired to claim them.
As long as there was a glimmer of opportunity, they couldn’t afford to give up.
Although Wang Teng’s team seemed to have the upper hand, it didn’t guarantee that they wouldn’t make mistakes.
Guang Yu seemed to have realized this and had a sly smile on his face. The information he had shared with Wang Teng wasn’t entirely accurate. If Wang Teng took it at face value, he was bound to face losses, and Guang Yu intended to reclaim everything and more when the time was right.
As they continued moving forward, surprisingly, they encountered no further dangers, and the mysterious black shadow didn’t reappear.
After journeying for what felt like an eternity, they crossed vast stretches of the ancient architectural landscape, each majestic structure crumbling and dissolving into the annals of time, leaving nothing but dust to mark their existence.
Suddenly, Wang Teng halted in his tracks, his gaze fixed on a particular spot in the distance. His pupils constricted slightly.
Wan Dong and his companions were equally startled when they saw it and gasped in shock, their faces turned ashen.
On the other side, separated by some distance but with keen eyes, Guang Yu and his team also observed the situation. They hesitated, not getting closer, keeping their distance.
A body pinned to the stone wall!
It was a man with a towering stature, at least seven to eight meters tall, and he had a gigantic, razor-sharp golden horn protruding from the top of his head.
“Giant Horn Race martial warrior!”
Wang Teng recognized this race. This was a martial warrior from the Giant Horn Race, known for their formidable affinity with the Metal element.
“Judging by the patterns on his horn, he was at least a universe-stage martial warrior, yet he met a violent death here!” Wang Teng whispered.
What truly sent shivers down their spines was the manner of death for this Giant Horn Race martial warrior. His internal organs, his very core, even the center of his brows, had all been perforated. His body was riddled with dark metallic rods of an unknown composition, with dried black bloodstains all around.
This scene was undeniably eerie and unsettling.
“It should have been a one-strike kill,” Wang Teng said.
The others paused and looked more closely, asking, “How do you know that?”
“Look at his wounds,” Wang Teng explained grimly, “There are no signs of struggle. It appears his mind and internal organs were pierced simultaneously, indicating an incredible level of control.”
The group’s faces turned even more somber.
“Is this the work of a divine spirit master?” Wan Dong hesitated before asking.
“It’s not certain,” Wang Teng replied with a thoughtful look.
“Take a look at this wall,” said Dong Lei suddenly. “It’s quite peculiar. The other walls have crumbled under the ravages of time, turning to dust upon contact. Yet this barrier stands here seemingly untouched by time’s decay.”
She was referring to the barrier behind the body. Given the weight of the body, the wall should have turned to dust a long time ago, but it still stood, which was quite astonishing.
“That is strange indeed. I’ll go take a look!” Gikdor offered and cautiously moved forward.
At this point, they were still several hundred meters away from the body. Wang Teng had already stopped to avoid getting too close in case of unexpected events.
As Gikdor started to walk closer, Wang Teng pulled him back.
Gikdor looked at Wang Teng curiously.
Without explaining further, Wang Teng turned back and called out to Guang Yu and the others, “Senior Guang Yu, there’s a corpse here. Would you like to take a look?”
The expressions of the onlookers turned peculiar as if they had caught a whiff of something familiar.
On the other side, Guang Yu’s expression turned suspicious, his voice cold. “No need. We’ve already seen it.”
Seeing that they didn’t come over, Wang Teng’s eyes darted around, and he added, “It seems this corpse has a space ring on its hand. Finders keepers, right? Come on, everyone, let’s share the spoils.”
Wan Dong and the others were stunned. They turned their heads abruptly and finally noticed the space ring on the corpse’s hand.
In general, after defeating an opponent, martial warriors would typically claim any spoils, especially conspicuous items like space equipment, rather than leaving them behind for others.
That was why Wan Dong and the others didn’t even look at it.
After Wang Teng’s reminder, they finally realized that the space ring was still there.
For a moment, the eyes of the group members all revealed a burning desire. It was a space ring left behind by a universe-
stage martial warrior. What could be inside it?
Guang Yu and his team were initially quite resolute, refusing to come over. However, as soon as they heard about the space ring, they started to have other thoughts.
Why don’t I take a look? Guang Yu persuaded himself in his heart.
Just a look.
He would act according to the circumstances and retreat the moment something went wrong. He wouldn’t fall into Wang Teng’s trap!
He wasn’t stupid.
A universe-stage martial warrior’s space ring was tempting but he needed to stay alive to enjoy the spoils.
He glanced at his remaining four teammates and saw that they were all eager. This made his determination waver a bit further.
“Leader?” Ran Qian asked.
“Come, let’s take a look,” Guang Yu whispered.
“Okay!” Ran Qian and the others’ eyes lit up. Why did they come out for the mission? Wasn’t it for these things?
The space equipment left behind by a universe-stage martial warrior was simply too tempting. Even though they all knew that Wang Teng certainly wasn’t that kind-hearted, they couldn’t resist the temptation.
A group of people quickly arrived beside Wang Teng and his teammates.
“How do you want to split it?” Guang Yu first glanced at the space ring on the finger of the Giant Horn Race martial warrior to ensure its authenticity. Then he looked at Wang Teng and asked.
