Oscar threw a Pioneering Order to Wang Zhong. "You know how to use it right?"
Wang Zhong nodded. Oscar grinned while smoking his cigar. There were two lazy bums in the team who hadn't reached the meeting place yet. Oscar was willing to help Wang Zhong since it was convenient anyway, and also, he didn't agree with some bad practices in the Holy Land.
The few people standing beside Oscar nodded at Wang Zhong as a form of greeting, and only the youngest guy extended a hand to him. "Just follow me later on. I'm Asher."
"I'm Wang Zhong."
Wang Zhong smiled and shook hands with Asher. Surprisingly, Asher merely shook his hand and didn't have any intention of testing him. It made sense since, not only was he a newcomer, he was also one that was spoken badly of. Why would a Holy Disciple waste any effort on testing him? Moreover, they would part ways once they got out of the city.
Asher smiled. "Newcomers like you who are eager to go solo when they just arrived at the Holy City are extremely rare. The Dimensional World is full of weird things. Be careful and stay safe."
Going solo referred to a lone ranger who would leave the city all alone. In the Holy City, this was a symbol of power. Wang Zhong, a newcomer who wasn't even a Holy Disciple, wanted to go solo? This was the same as suicide. Nevertheless, Wang Zhong didn't seem like he was crazy.
"I have some stuff that I need to settle. I won't go to dangerous places." Wang Zhong smiled. He could tell that this group was feeling pretty depressed. While there was anticipation under their calm expressions, there was a hint of fear too.
The others weren't talking much, and the youngest guy seemed to be relieving stress by talking to Wang Zhong.
"I hope to see you in one piece when we're back." Asher nodded, not prodding any further. Whether Wang Zhong was crazy or had secrets, this had nothing to do with the rest of the team. They couldn't even be sure that they themselves could return alive.
At this moment, two women joined the team. One looked about 17 or 18 years old, with small eyes, a flat nose, and pointed ears. Her lips were her most striking feature, which had a unique glossy sheen to it.
The other one was a very attractive woman around thirty years old. She had a strange rune on her forehead which glowed with an eerie power. It looked like a seal, and Dharma Idol power fluctuations could be felt from it.
"Brothers, I'm sorry to drag you guys into this. This may be our last trip. It's not too late for those who want to back out. Asher, you're still young. You can afford to wait a while more before joining us on this type of trip," Oscar said.
Asher smiled. "Team captain, what are you talking about? Since when are there cowards in the Wanderlust Team?"
The others nodded in agreement. Wang Zhong remained silent as he knew that it wasn't his place to say anything; Oscar was just being helpful. It seemed like the place this team was heading to was extremely dangerous, but this team was rather united. Wang Zhong was fairly interested in this type of team. As for the Gourmets, thanks but no thanks. To Wang Zhong, the ranking of the exploration team didn't matter; having a common goal was the most important thing.
Oscar introduced Wang Zhong to a few other team members, but they did not show much reaction to him.
They arrived at the transmission array. It wasn't as magnificent as one would imagine it to be. It consisted of an altar and three white obelisks less than five meters in height.
However, there was a strong team of teachers guarding the three obelisks, and the leader was a 2-star Great Teacher.
Oscar went forward and presented the Pioneering Orders to a teacher and completed a simple registration of the number of travelers. After the staff confirmed that everything was in place, they activated the power source of the three obelisks.
Without any warning, three bolts of lightning struck down on the obelisks. Under the control of a teacher, the three bolts of lightning coincided at the center of the altar, giving off a buzzing sound. A transmission portal as white as snow then appeared there.
Wang Zhong blinked, all resentments towards the Pioneering Order instantly gone. This transmission portal was definitely worth it. In fact, these three bolts of lightning were essentially runes, just that they appeared in lightning form under the reinforcement of the obelisks. Runic forces that Wang Zhong couldn't comprehend burst forth, as time and space converged to form a stable and secure transmission portal.
This forced control of runic forces would definitely require an astronomical amount of energy to be consumed. The Holy City probably didn't benefit from selling Pioneering Orders at a few hundred Holy Coins for one.
"You may set off. Good luck."
The staff signaled to Oscar after testing the stability of the transmission portal.
Oscar nodded, being the first to dash into the transmission portal with his team following behind.
Wang Zhong didn't hesitate either, entering the portal with a hint of curiosity.
After a moment of dizziness, Wang Zhong found himself in a wasteland when he could see again. He was slightly shocked that this transmission was an instant one.
Wang Zhong experienced a transmission before when he traveled to the Holy Land with Molton; but at that time, they passed through a transmission channel which belonged to the fixed-acceleration transmission category. In that case, one would still need to proceed forward in the channel, just that time was accelerated in the process.
However, instant transmission was different. From entering the portal to arriving at your destination, it took less than a second.
After the last person in the team crossed over, the white portal hummed shut. They were left in a strange space, a small and enclosed area.
It was the first time Wang Zhong experienced this type of instant transmission. They were in a spatial fragment world similar to the one in Tianjing. It looked like a transit station.
"This is your first time traveling via instant transmission, huh? This is a transit space created by the Holy Land. Activate the Pioneering Order here, think of where you want to go, and you will be brought there. To come back, it's just a simple step of activating the Pioneering Order. Good luck, buddy." Oscar smiled. Seeing that Wang Zhong was uncertain about his surroundings, Oscar was nice enough to give him a heads-up although he was on an important mission.
This might be the last time they saw each other. The team members had mixed feelings toward Wang Zhong as they recalled their past selves when they had just entered the Holy Land. Everyone harbored hopes and dreams when they first arrived at the Holy Land, but these were eventually crushed by harsh reality. The competition and cruelty in the Holy Land were no less than that in the outside world. In some ways, the death rate was higher in the Holy Land.
"Captain Oscar, even though this sounds cliché, I still want to say thanks, and I hope to have a chance to repay you!" After Wang Zhong said that, the Holy Disciples around him smiled. He probably wouldn't have the chance to do so. Furthermore, what help could a Holy Apprentice offer?
The mission they were on would be a pain in the neck even for Great Teachers, but they weren't scared. Since they didn't do things the conventional way, they wouldn't be scared of death either!
"Okay! Everyone, take a break and check your supplies," Oscar commanded. Everyone used Soul Power to activate the Pioneering Order and started the transmission process collectively.
As Wang Zhong injected Soul Power into the Pioneering Order, a ball of power transmitting across time and space slowly collected. Right after, Wang Zhong's soul fluctuations sent the spatial coordinates of the pyramids into the ball of power.
