354 Mount Kuluo 2

 Based on the information that Shen Yanxiao had provided, Du Lang deduced that they were headed toward Mount Kuluo. However, his expression had also subtly changed at the same time.

"Mount Kuluo... If that's really where we're headed, then it wouldn't be a simple eighth-ranked magical beast," Du Lang said with a heavy tone.

Shen Yanxiao was not familiar with the circumstances that surrounded Mount Kuluo. So when she saw Du Lang's expression, she had to ask, "Is there a problem with Mount Kuluo?"

Du Lang looked at Shen Yanxiao, and he spoke with a slightly changed tone.

"The reason no one dared to go to Mount Kuluo is that other than the problem with the magical beasts and the fire elements, a huge group of demonic beasts also dwelled there."

"Demonic beasts?" Shen Yanxiao was surprised by that information. Ever since her reincarnation, she had heard so much about the demonic beasts. Xiu had also gobbled hundreds of thousands of demonic cores. However, she had never seen any of the creatures that people had described as terrifying.

Du Lang nodded and said, "That's right. The four empires in the Brilliance Continent had banded together in the past, but they only managed to clear four areas that were now designated as safe zones. They had removed countless demonic beasts, but some still managed to escape and hid deep in the mountains. Since no humans dared to stay on Mount Kuluo, it then became the playground for both magical and demonic beasts. In the past, a mercenary group with more than a hundred members accepted a mission to Mount Kuluo. Only about a dozen of them survived. The others were either killed by the magical beasts or eaten by the demonic ones.

A mercenary group with more than a hundred members?

Was that not equivalent to a mid-sized mercenary group?

A mid-sized group had gone on Mount Kuluo, but only a handful of survivors had managed to escape. One could easily see how dangerous the mission was.

"No wonder the client had to keep the destination a secret. Other than concealing the information about the Phoenix's nest, they must have been afraid that the mercenary groups would reject the mission if they had known." Shen Yanxiao touched her chin as her large round eyes narrowed. Based on what Du Lang had told her, she thought that Mount Kuluo was a rather dangerous place too. Other than the magical beasts, they also had to worry about the unpredictable demonic beasts that could kill them. Furthermore, there was also the Phoenix that was comparable to a mythical beast.

That place looked to be a survival challenge.

"Do you wish to back out from the mission?" Shen Yanxiao felt helpless when she saw Du Lang's increasingly darkened expression. She thought that Du Lang would not have the chance to back out as long as she kept the Phoenix's real rank a secret. However, she did not expect that he could make so many deductions based on so little information. He even knew that the destination was a perilous one. It looked like Du Lang might leave the mission early. If that were to happen, she would need to think of another way to infiltrate into the other mercenary groups so that she could make use of that advantage to get the Flame Grass.

Du Lang kept his silence for a brief moment, and then he shook his head.

"The Cave Wolves Mercenary Group will not back out of any mission, and that is the principle of mercenary groups. Even though we know that it is a dangerous task, we will not violate the agreement. It concerns the honor of our group, and as long as we've accepted the mission, we will never back out from it!" Du Lang's voice was deep, but his oddly strong and powerful words shocked her.

Shen Yanxiao was stunned. Du Lang's adherence to honor had amazed her.
