First Meeting[edit | edit source]
Shi Die was invited by Jin Qing to raid a ruin of an Ancient Cultivator. Her assistance was solicited to break protection and illusion formations. When she arrived at the ruins, she met an Early-Core Formation stage Han Li. As a condition for her participation, she called "first dibs" on any treasures found. Despite being a formation expert, she needed to defer to Han Li who was recruited as a backup formation expert. She was amazed at his proficiency with formations.Together with Han Li, she removed the protection and illusion formations guarding the ruins.
Raiding the Ruins[edit | edit source]
After raiding the ruins, Shi Die was assaulted by a Demon Serpent while attempting to acquire a rare treasure. The demon serpent left her face scarred. However, the situation progressively worsened as the Core Formation cultivators in the group barely defended against congealed Yang Birds.
