71 The First System Update
The invitation was extremely strange.
It was made of an unknown material, and there was an ancient and mysterious word engraved on its pitch-black cover that Lin Wudao did not recognize.
However, through the feedback from God’s Spiritual Eye, he learned the meaning of the word.
“As expected of an invitation from the Terminator organization. To be able to make such a strange and magical thing, this Terminator organization must be extraordinary. I wonder what other extraordinary people they have besides the Mad Daoist. If there’s a chance, I’d like to meet them,” Lin Wudao murmured.
He opened the invitation and saw that it was completely blank. There was no writing on it.
Seeing this, Lin Wudao sized it up a few more times before putting it away.
After that, He did not leave the Dayan ancestral land. Instead, he found a quiet place and began to cultivate.
One day later, Lin Wudao was jolted awake from his cultivation, because the system update had been completed.
[The first update of the Invincible Corpse Collection System has been completed. The main content of this update includes the following aspects. Please read them carefully.]
[1. A new definition of a powerhouse: Collected corpses must be one major realm higher than the host to be defined as a powerhouse.]
[Remarks: Corpses with cultivation lower than the host will not provide any items after collection.]
[2. New function “Item Synthesis”! With this function, the host can combine items of the same type, thus extracting their essence and removing their impurities.]
[3. You have been rewarded with a Corpse-refining Furnace that can extract part of the corpses’ essences and strengthen your cultivation.]
[4. You have been rewarded with 12 mourners who will become your retinue.]
[Remarks: The mourners are immortal and will never betray the host. The host can consume a certain amount of Fate Energy value to make them stronger.]
A series of notifications sounded in his mind.
Upon hearing all this, Lin Wudao remained silent for a long time before he completely digested the contents of the system update.
First of all, the threshold for collecting corpses had been raised.
Only by collecting corpses that were one major realm higher than himself could he obtain items that the deceased had or had come into contact with before they died.
Now, Lin Wudao’s cultivation was at perfection in the Divine Transformation realm. As such, according to the system’s standards, he would have to collect the corpses of Origin Return realm creatures to reap the rewards.
Any corpse below the Origin Return realm would be ineffective.
In this regard, although Lin Wudao was a little surprised, he didn’t feel too dejected.
After all, the more powerful one was, the more precious the items they had and the items they came into contact with were. For the corpses he had to collect to be one major realm higher than himself, the condition was still acceptable.
In addition, there was the Item Synthesis function.
Lin Wudao was very curious about this function.
With a wave of his hand, he took out all five Extreme Dao spiritual weapons that he currently had.
“System, can these be synthesized?”
[The host can choose one of the Extreme Dao weapons as the foundation and extract the essence of the other Extreme Dao weapons to improve the chosen weapon’s quality.]
Even this could be done?
Lin Wudao felt as if he had discovered a new field.
He pondered for a while and decided to merge the essence of the other four Extreme Dao spiritual weapons into the Great Desolation Cauldron to forge a heavy weapon.
[Ding! Not enough Fate Energy value, unable to synthesize.]
Huh… Synthesizing items required Fate Energy value too?
Lin Wudao frowned.
“I’ll offer all the resources I’ve obtained in the Dayan ancestral land as a sacrifice.”
He had no choice.
He was currently a pauper, so to form an even stronger Extreme Dao spiritual weapon, he had to sacrifice the many resources he had plundered from the Imperial Dao stone pagoda.
Either way, there was no use in keeping them.
[Ding! Congratulations to the host. You have obtained 1.28 million Fate Energy value.]
“How much Fate Energy value do I need to combine the Dayan Sword, the Dari Demonic Furnace, the Xuantian Seal, and the Chixiao Ancient Sword with the Great Desolation Cauldron? ”
[Eight hundred thousand.]
Lin Wudao’s brows furrowed even more.
In the end, he still chose to synthesize the weapons.
Although his heart ached from losing 800,000 Fate Energy value, it was definitely worth it if he could get a top-grade Extreme Dao spiritual weapon in exchange.
Therefore, Lin Wudao was filled with anticipation for the synthesis this time.
[Synthesizing, please wait a moment.]
A series of mysterious Dao sounds lingered in his ears.
Lin Wudao stared unblinkingly at the five Extreme Dao spiritual weapons in front of him. They were enveloped by a vast divine light, and thunderous metal-colliding sounds came from within.
It was as if the weapons were being reforged.
A moment later, the light dissipated.
In an instant, an ancient-looking extraordinary black cauldron entered Lin Wudao’s sight.
It was emitting a majestic Extreme Dao pressure that caused the void to freeze.
[Name: Great Desolation Cauldron]
[Level: Spiritual weapon]
[Grade: Top grade]
[Extreme Dao Restrictions: 81]
[Description: Created from the essence and Extreme Dao restrictions extracted from the Dayan Sword, the Dari Demonic Furnace, the Xuantian Seal, and the Chixiao Ancient Sword.]
[Functions: 1. Suppress an area.]
[2. Destroy all. Invincible in the Extreme Dao.]
[3. Plunder the spiritual energy of heaven and earth and turn it into spiritual water. The water can be used to water spiritual herbs and speed up their growth, as well as used for cultivation to strengthen one’s cultivation base.]
Brand new information was presented before his eyes.
After reading it, Lin Wudao was greatly shocked.
After fusing the essence of the four Extreme Dao spiritual weapons, the Great Desolation Cauldron that was formed had reached the highest grade an Extreme Dao spiritual weapon could reach.
Other than that, the three great functions it possessed were also extremely powerful.
“The 800000 Fate Energy value I spent to combine four Extreme Dao spiritual weapons wasn’t in vain. The Great Desolation Cauldron didn’t disappoint me. With it, my power is even greater.”
Lin Wudao’s eyes glowed.
After examining it for a long time, he put the Great Desolation Cauldron back into the system space.
Then, his eyes fell on the Corpse-refining Furnace.
With a thought, an ancient octagonal furnace with a strange appearance appeared in front of him.
It was a hundred feet tall and was exuding a strange and mysterious aura.
[Name: Inferior Corpse-refining Furnace]
[Description: This item can melt the corpses of all living creatures in the world and extract one-ten-thousandth of their essence to transform into the user’s cultivation.]
An inferior Corpse-refining Furnace? One ten-thousandth of its essence?
Lin Wudao fell into deep thought when he saw the information.
At this moment, a bold plan emerged in his heart.
Currently, after the system update, he could only obtain items by collecting corpses of the deceased that were one major realm higher than him. Corpses with lower cultivation than him would be wasted.
If he put those corpses into the Corpse-refining Furnace and refined them, wouldn’t the waste be recycled?
At that time, it would increase his cultivation.
Although one in ten thousand was indeed too little, if there were enough corpses, it could still increase his cultivation by a lot.
This was a shortcut to cultivation!
Thinking of this, Lin Wudao’s eyes glowed.
At this moment, it was as if he had seen a broad path in front of him.
“System, since the Corpse-refining Furnace is inferior now, there must be high-quality ones too, right?”
[When the host’s cultivation reaches a certain level or the system is updated again, the host will have a certain chance of obtaining a high-quality Corpse-refining Furnace. In addition, the host can also consume Fate Energy value to upgrade the inferior Corpse-refining Furnace.]
In the end, he still needed Fate Energy value.
“By the way, what’s up with the twelve mourners?”
[They are servants gifted to the host. Their physical bodies are indestructible, they are absolutely loyal, and they will never betray the host. Every single one of them possesses extremely powerful combat strength.]
[They are invincible within their respective major realms.]
[There are 12 mourners in total. The leader is called Li Zangtian. He is in the early stage of the Heavenly realm, but he can kill those in the perfection of the Heavenly realm and be undefeatable against those in the Origin Return realm.]
[Please look into the details yourself, host.]
As the system’s voice fell, a slight ripple suddenly appeared in the void before him.
Immediately after, twelve demonic figures appeared out of thin air in front of Lin Wudao.
