Chapter 1082: Success Rate of Forming the Pill
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian was totally immersed in his cultivation and comprehending the Concepts.
Comprehending three different Concepts at once gave him a whole new feeling. It was extremely satisfying and not something he had ever experienced before.
After cultivating for one night, Duan Ling Tian was very happy even though there was no substantial improvement in his strength. He was glad his consciousness was split into three, and he could comprehend three different concepts at once.
Duan Ling Tian who had just finished freshening up when the sun was high in the sky heard a servant calling out to him outside his door.
“Yes?” When Duan Ling Tian opened his door, the servant outside passed him a Spatial Ring and said, “Elder Duan, the Clan Leader asked me to hand this over to you.”
“The Clan Leader was here?” Duan Ling Tian was a little surprised when he heard the servant’s words. He took the Spatial Ring from the servant.
“Yes.” The servant nodded. “Clan Leader came early this morning. He left this Spatial Ring to me before he left because he didn’t want to disturb your rest, Elder Duan.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded and twirled the Spatial Ring in his hand for a while before returning to his room. After he closed the door, he pricked his finger to establish a Blood Ownership Claim with the Spatial Ring.
“It seems like the Clan Leader is quite anxious.”
He shook his head and smiled before he looked inside the Spatial Ring.
He knew what the Clan Leader wanted him to do.
Just like he had expected, there were many medicinal materials in the Spatial Ring. Additionally, there was a list that listed several types of grade one pills that the Lu Clan wanted him to refine.
However, the requested number of pills made Duan Ling Tian speechless.
“Are they looking down on me?”
Duan Ling Tian could not help but smile bitterly after glancing at the pile of medicinal materials in the Spatial Ring and the amount of grade one pills jotted down on the list.
Based on the requested number of grade one pills on the list, only 30% of the medicinal materials in the Spatial Ring was needed.
“I would only use 30% of the medicinal materials at the most to form the number of requested grade one pills on the list… Well, since the Clan Leader wants to gift me the medicinal materials, I can only accept it,” Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself as a bright smile appeared on his face.
If the Lu Clan’s Clan Leader, Lu Rui was around to hear what Duan Ling Tian said, he would have been rendered speechless.
In Lu Rui’s opinion, the number of medicinal materials he provided was a little insufficient considering the number of grade one pills requested on the list.
Ordinarily, a grade one alchemist would find it difficult to form the number of grade one pills requested on the list even if he depleted all the medicinal materials in the Spatial Ring.
That was because the success rate of a grade one alchemist in forming pills was usually between 20% to 30%. In fact, they rarely exceeded 30%.
Even the Guild Master of Alchemist Guild’s Main Guild in the Southern Outer Land had a success rate of around 25% when it comes to refining pills.
In the Lu Clan’s 10,000 years of history, the only one who had more than 30% of success rate in forming grade one pills was the founder of Lu Clan.
Among the tens of grade one alchemists in the later generation, the highest success rate they had was at 28%.
The task he gave Duan Ling Tian needed a success rate of 30% to fulfill it.
Naturally, he was not trying to find fault with Duan Ling Tian.
He would not be unhappy even if Duan Ling Tian depleted all the medicinal materials in the Spatial Ring and still failed to form the requested number of grade one pills on the list.
He did this to test Duan Ling Tian’s medicine refinement level.
After all, all he knew about that Duan Ling Tian was that he could manifest grade one Pill Fire, and he was a grade one alchemist with a profound insight on the Medicine Refinement Dao.
As for Duan Ling Tian’s actual medicine refinement level, he knew nothing about it.
Fortunately, Duan Ling Tian was not aware of Lu Rui’s thoughts. Otherwise, he would have scoffed at him.
The Clan Leader wanted to test if his success rate of forming grade one pills would exceed 30%?
They looked down on him too much!
It should be noted that he had the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s techniques and life-long experience in refining medicine. In terms of refining medicine, there was no difference between him and the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
As long as he was not distracted, his success rate was 100%.
“These medicinal materials are necessary to refine grade one pills. They’re all extraordinarily valuable… However, more than 70% of it will belong to me after today.”
Before Duan Ling Tian began to refine the pills, he glanced at the pile of medicinal materials in the Spatial Ring again. The smile on his face became wider and wider.
He took a moment to calm him down before he prepared to refine the grade one pills requested on the list.
Grade one Life Recovery Pills were obviously on the list.
As for the others, there were grade one pills similar in difficulty to refine as grade one Life Recovery Pills. However, the effects were not as potent. That was why it was not as widely used as the grade one Life Recovery Pills.
Obviously, since grade one Life Recovery Pills were healing pills. It would be useful if anyone was injured.
As for the other pills, the effects were not potent as well.
“How much should the purity be at?”
After Duan Ling Tian retrieved his cauldron and prepared to refine the requested grade one pills, he suddenly thought of this. He was at a loss as to what to do next.
With his medicine refinement level, it was undoubtedly very simple for him to refine grade one pills with more than 90% purity.
“If I refine grade one pills with more than 90% purity… Will it scare the Clan Leader?” Duan Ling Tian had to consider this issue.
“Oh, well… I’ll hold back my strength a little and refine pills with purity around 90%.” Duan Ling Tian made a decision after he considered the help Lu Clan had provided him.
Naturally, he did not want to stand out. In fact, it was not difficult for him to refine pills with more than 95% purity.
The pills on the list were all very basic and ordinary grade one pills in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes.
If he was willing, he certainly could refine the pill with more than 95% purity.
“I think pills with 90% purity are sufficient to give the Clan Leader a scare… If I refine a pill with more than 95% purity, the Clan Leader might get a heart attack.”
Because Duan Ling Tian did not want to stand out, he decided not to refine the requested grade one pills with more than 95% purity for the Clan Leader of Lu Clan, Lu Rui.
90% purity would have to be enough.
Duan Ling Tian was finally done thinking things through, and he began to refine the grade one pills.
Meanwhile, the spacious central main hall in the Lu Clan was crowded with people.
The Lu Clan’s Clan Leader, Lu Rui, sat on the main seat. Beneath him, a fat old man and a thin old man sat on each of his sides. Apart from the size difference, their height difference was also quite significant.
The fat one was short and looked like a ball.
The thin one was tall and looked like a bamboo.
They were among the three strongest Guardian Elders in the Lu Clan, Lu Yuan and Lu Gui.
Both were Martial Monarch powerhouses!
A group of Lu Clan’s elders including Lu Sou stood beneath them. The Lu Clan’s elders all had one thing in common. They were all focused on the Medicine Refinement Dao.
Almost all of the elders were grade three alchemists apart from a few who were grade two alchemists. None of them were grade four alchemists.
In the Lu Clan, there were two ways of becoming an elder.
First, non-alchemist who focused on the Martial Dao must attain cultivation at the Ninth Level Void Transformation or above.
Second, alchemists must be grade three alchemists or better.
Due to that reason, ordinary grade four alchemists in the Lu Clan were not qualified to be Lu Clan’s elders unless their cultivation was at the Ninth Level Void Transformation or above.
Among those who were present, only Lu Yuan and Lu Gui were not alchemists.
In other words, they simply came just to join in the fun!
“Clan Leader, what pills did you request Elder Duan to refine?” Lu Yuan asked as he narrowed his eyes to look at Lu Rui.
After Lu Yuan said that, all the Lu Clan’s elders shifted their eyes to Lu Rui. They were also curious about the matter.
Lu Rui smiled faintly as he listed the grade one pills he requested.
Initially, nobody thought anything was amiss.
However, when Lu Rui disclosed the number of grade one pills he had requested and the number of medicinal materials he gave Duan Ling Tian in the Spatial Ring, Lou Sou gasped and asked, “Clan Leader, with the number of medicinal materials you prepared for Elder Duan, he’ll need at least a 30% success rate of forming pills to produce the amount of pills you requested, right?”
“30% success rate in forming pills… In our Lu Clan’s history, only the founder of Lu Clan could do something like this!”
“Clan Leader, you’re making things difficult for Elder Duan.”
“Elder Duan won’t feel dissatisfied and leave in a huff, will he?”
The group of Lu Clan’s elders discussed among themselves. Most of them were worried Duan Ling Tian would leave Lu Clan in anger due to Lu Rui’s provocation.
At that time, the party that would suffer a loss would be the Lu Clan.
“Clan Leader, although I’m not an alchemist, after being in the family for such a long time, even I know that most grade one alchemists rarely achieve a 30% success rate when forming the pills,” Lu Gui said with a frown.
“Clan Leader, what if Elder Duan really get angry because of this and leave the Lu Clan. It’ll be a huge loss for us… Why don’t I send some more medicinal materials over?” Lu Yuan added.
“Elders, please don’t worry. I’m doing it to test Elder Duan’s skills. I’m not trying to provoke him.”
Lu Rui smiled when he saw how worried the elders were. However, he did not take them seriously. He only said, “Besides, based on my interaction with Elder Duan, he’s definitely not so petty…”
Before Lu Rui finished speaking, he was suddenly interrupted by a loud voice from outside.
“Elder Duan asked me to hand you the pills you requested him to refine.”
