Mo Fan already had an impressive Magic Tool to support his cultivation, so he was not interested in getting another one . However, a high-quality Magic Tool was crucial for an Advanced Mage trying to break through to the Super Level . The Magic Tool would greatly increase the chances of someone as diligent as Mu Bai expanding his Star Galaxies into Star Universes!
A Star Universe Magic Tool was the highest level of Magic Tool, and allowed a Super Mage to rapidly improve and stabilize their cultivation . It was why Mu Bai had spent so much effort analyzing the structure of the Pyramid .
The Huntsman Spider was not strong, just as they had expected . It was nothing but a petty spider waiting to be slaughtered once it was paralyzed by Mo Fan’s Shadow Magic . Mo Fan soon discovered that beneath it… the end of its abdomen was deep inside the ceiling . When he pulled it out, he saw a long strand of spider silk connected to it!
“Mu Bai, there’s indeed a channel behind it!” Mo Fan exclaimed .
“Many things are based on logic,” Mu Bai answered smugly . There was no place for illogical things to exist inside the strictly-organized Pyramid!
“Little Loach, I’m going to release the essence that the spider has stored inside its stomach, be ready for a great feast!” Mo Fan said .
Mo Fan cut the spider’s belly open ruthlessly . The creature clearly did not deserve his pity, since it had absorbed the life essence of countless humans . The human lives needed to refine the essence it channeled could easily fill up the spacious chamber!
The Huntsman Spider had no chance of defending itself . It was a parasitic species; it provided the undead with the essence, and in return, the undead kept it safe . When its master died, it had lost its purpose!
It had stored a huge amount of the essence . The evil energy that the Underworld Executioners collected from the vengeful spirits and the hatred of the dead was refined into pure energy equivalent to Soul Essences before being stored in the belly of the Huntsman Spider . However, the amount it was storing was many times greater than the energy of a Soul Essence!
Soul Essences were the purest energy in the world, yet the Mummies were constantly being fed an energy equivalent to it . It was not a surprise they would become as strong as monsters!
Mo Fan and Mu Bai were clearly in luck . The Huntsman Spider had stored a huge amount of energy for the Advisor Mummy before it was slain . No wonder the creature did not dare to jump down from the ceiling and fight them . It was concealing the treasure in its belly!
Little Loach absorbed the energy crazily, enjoying this more than the contents of Sayed’s Soul Container . Mo Fan kept noticing new Soul Essences popping up in the Nether River like dazzling little gems, each with a unique glow that showed their value!
Mo Fan had already earned a fortune from claiming Sayed’s possessions, but Little Loach was still not satisfied, like a starving baby craving more milk!
“Seven Commander-level Soul Essences, Seventy-nine Warrior-level Soul Essences… eight Commander-level Soul Essences, tsk tsk…I’m really going to have my own army of wolves!” Mo Fan blurted out in joy .
Eight Commander-level Soul Essences, how insane was that? It meant Mo Fan could Summon eight extra Commander-level Summoned Beasts!
How significant was having eight extra Commander-level Summoned Beasts under his command? A Super Mage could easily die when being attacked by eight Commander-level creatures at the same time if it was careless!
On top of that, even if eight Commander-level creatures were unable to defeat a Ruler-level creature, they could still keep it busy for quite some time!
Most importantly, apart from having eight extra Commander-level creatures, Mo Fan now had a total of one hundred and ninety wolves in his army!
Imagine one hundred and ninety Warrior-level Enormous White Wolves and White-Marked Wolves rushing out of the Summoning Gate… they could easily fill up the streets of an entire city! If he had possessed an army of this scale when he stumbled into Captain Saks and Major General Gangma, they would have fallen right on their knees and begged for mercy!
Mo Fan contacted the Flying Creek Snow Wolf . “Old Wolf, get your brothers from their caves, I’m going to announce some great news!”
It was not difficult for him to communicate with his Summoned Beast in the Summoned Beast Plane . If Mo Fan actually bothered, his consciousness could even enter the Summoned Beast Plane and observe the situation there .
The Old Wolf was living in a cave in the Summoned Beast Plane . He had been a vagrant back when he was still a Spirit Wolf . He would accidentally enter other beasts’ territory and be chased around and driven away by them . He was often covered in wounds when Mo Fan first brought him from the Summoned Beast Plane back then .
It was the downside of having a Summoned Beast . The Summoned Beasts lived in the Summoned Beast Plane . They might even die if they met with misfortune in their own Plane, meaning that everything the Summoners had invested in them was in vain . In contrast, most Contracted Beasts were from the same Plane as the Summoners, with their own Contracted Space provided by the Summoners . It was unlikely they would die unless their Summoners failed to take care of them .
Similarly, the beasts that the Summoning Gate Summoned were from the Summoned Beast Plane too . They did not just appear out of nowhere; they normally lived in the Summoned Beast Plane .
A Summoning Gate would usually Summon random beasts from the Summoned Beast Plane . It could be a bunch of Iron-Hoofed Rhinoceroses or a pack of Blood-Tide Beasts . If the Summoner did not specifically look for the relevant Seal of a certain species, a Summoning Gate would Summon different species every time it was cast!
The reason why Mo Fan only Summoned wolves was because the Flying Creek Snow Wolf was currently living in a cave with the Enormous White Wolves . Those wolves treated the Flying Creek Snow Wolf as their Alpha . Therefore, Mo Fan just had to leave a Seal on those Enormous White Wolves, allowing him to Summon them every time he cast the Summoning Gate!
The Enormous White Wolves were very obedient under the Flying Creek Snow Wolf’s leadership . Mo Fan was quite fond of them, but he felt like their numbers were a little short . Since he did not focus much on his Summoning Element, it had limited the capacity of his Summoning Gate .
However, Mo Fan now had the Magic Medium Ring, and could Summon an extra Summoned Beast from the Summoned Beast Plane for every Soul Essence he had contributed to it!
If Mo Fan did not like the creature, he would just toss it back into the Summoned Beast Plane and let it be . If he was pleased with the creature’s performance, he could just tag the creature to Summon it again next time!
Mo Fan had selected the White Wolf Species . The Enormous White Wolves and the White-Marked Wolves were very common in the Summoned Beast Plane . Therefore, whenever he increased the capacity of the Summoning Gate with the Magic Medium Ring, he would tag a wild wolf and recruit it to join the Flying Creek Snow Wolf’s army!
The Flying Creek Snow Wolf had once been a lone fighter wandering aimlessly . He finally got to enjoy a stable life after Mo Fan took him in . He was able to grow a lot stronger, too, so most of the wolves who were wanderers like him were willing to join his pack . This established a sense of trust between the Summoned Beasts and the Summoner .
The Flying Creek Snow Wolf had just woken up . He was worn out and injured after fighting two Hellish Cerberi not long ago . He had yet to get enough rest when his boss called him, so he was in a bad mood…
“Show me some spirit! You’re the wolf chieftain of more than a hundred wolves now . A bunch of rookies are going to show up soon . Don’t embarrass me, do you understand!?” Mo Fan scolded him
The Flying Creek Snow Wolf did not understand Mo Fan’s words . He lifted his gaze and looked at Mo Fan’s blurred face high up in the dim sky in the Summoned Beast Plane . The scene was similar to an office worker watching his boss blabbering in a video conference . The worker was worn out from all his strenuous work, yet his boss kept on talking nonsense!
“Why don’t you just transform into a pig instead? What did you not understand? Listen!” Mo Fan said .
The Flying Creek Snow Wolf looked around him and noticed some movements . He stared at a hill in front of him alertly .
A White-Marked Wolf was standing on the hill . It seemed a little cautious, and only dared to move closer after observing its surroundings for some time .
“Awoo!” the Flying Creek Snow Wolf howled, asking the White-Marked Wolf what it wanted .
The White-Marked Wolf’s level was lower than the Flying Creek Snow Wolf, so it was a little intimidated . It showed the Seal on its back that indicated it was a new recruit .
The Flying Creek Snow Wolf finally came to his senses . New recruits kept joining his pack recently, so he was not too bothered by it . He quickly checked the wolf’s Contract and walked around it in a circle . As usual, he told the new recruit to do his best if it wanted to live an enjoyable life with the others!
The Flying Creek Snow Wolf immediately went back to the cave to get some sleep . He thought something serious was going to happen, yet it was just a new recruit joining his troop . Couldn’t Mo Fan just ask an Enormous White Wolf to welcome the new recruit? Why would Mo Fan bother asking him to do it?
To the Flying Creek Snow Wolf’s surprise, another figure showed up outside the cave in just a few minutes .
A bunch of White-Marked Wolves had shown up on the same hill . They looked rather imperious as their hair drifted in the wind . The Flying Creek Snow Wolf quickly rose to his feet and gathered his brothers to prepare themselves for an attack .
The Flying Creek Snow Wolf thought a battle over the ownership of the cave was about to happen, but he was surprised when he discovered that the White-Marked Wolves were all new recruits that had signed a temporary Contract!
The cave initially had around a hundred wolves, but there were suddenly another fifty new recruits joining them . The Flying Creek Snow Wolf did not expect his pack to grow so much so suddenly!
“HAHAHA, surprised? There are a few stubborn ones among the new recruits . You better teach them to behave themselves . Also, there are more coming…” Mo Fan was enlightened when he saw the Old Wolf’s reaction .
The Old Wolf was utterly confused, but he was quite excited, too . He suddenly had so many new recruits . His little cave was nowhere enough to hold them all!
“I have another eight Commander-level Soul Essences . I’m choosing some impressive Commander-level wolves . They will report to you once I’m done,” Mo Fan said .
He had to choose the Commander-level wolves wisely . It was going to take him some time .
