Chapter 1084: The Ultimate Freak of Freaks
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Just as the Lu Clan elders shot their gazes at the Clan Leader Lu Rui, a loud bang was heard, jolting their hearts from fear.
All they saw was Lu Rui standing from where he was sitting as if he had lost himself, breaking the chair before it fell to the ground.
“What happened exactly? What could make Clan Leader lose himself like that!”
“It’s definitely not something ordinary since the Clan Leader lost himself like that… We’ve to be mentally prepared.”
“I thought so too.”
The Lu Clan elders whispered among themselves as they continued looking at Lu Rui and prepared to the best of their abilities to mentally prepare themselves.
Lu Rui stood at the front of the Main Hall holding a pill that dazzled in a faint glow in his hand. He had put other pills away, and Lu Rui’s eyes were fixed on the pill in his hand as if he was possessed.
“What’s wrong with the pill?” All of a sudden, doubt arose in the hearts of many of the Lu Clan elders.
Following that, the elders turned their attention to the pill Lu Rui was holding in his hand. The pill dazzled with a faint glow as it gave off a pleasant medicinal fragrance.
“A grade one Life Recovery Pill!” They recognized the pill at first glance.
“How… How is that possible?!” Soon, the pupils of one of the older Lu Clan elders shrunk. The shock on his face was as if he had seen something beyond belief.
The Lu Clan elder was one of the few grade two alchemists in the clan.
He was the old man who mocked himself to have wasted most of his life. “I’m afraid… the purity of this Life Recovery Pill’s is only slightly above 85%?” the other Lu Clan elder who was also a grade two alchemist wore a shocked expression on his face and mumbled.
“No… It’s not just 85%! The purity of this Life Recovery Pill is probably more than 90%!” Apart from the two old men and the Clan Leader, the clan’s last grade two alchemist spoke as well, looking extremely serious.
“A grade one Life Recovery Pill with a purity beyond… 90%?” The entire Lu Clan’s Main Hall fell into dead silence as soon as the elder spoke. The jaws of the elders dropped as a look of disbelief appeared on their faces.
However, this excluded Guardian Elders Lu Yuan and Lu Gui who majored in Martial Dao.
The rest of the elders were all grade three alchemists, and although they could tell that the purity of the pill the Clan Leader was holding onto was rather high, they dared not say how high the purity was.
After all, it was a grade one pill!
They were shocked to hear what the grade two alchemist elders were saying.
“Please take a look, three elders.” At that moment, Lu Rui snapped back to his senses as he stood before them. He lifted his arm and tossed the grade one Life Recovery Pill in his hand to one of the grade two alchemist elders.
All of a sudden, the other two grade two alchemist elders surrounded him.
“The purity… It’s almost 91%!” Almost instantly, the three grade two alchemist elders confirmed the purity of the grade one Life Recovery Pill in their hand after a closer observation.
The remaining grade three alchemist elders took a cold breath with eyes and faces filled with disbelief.
“Never would I have expected that Elder Duan would not only be able to refine medicine that quickly, with that kind of success rate and an unprecedented pill purity!” Lu Yuan said in shock.
“Is Elder Duan really human?” Lu Gui mumbled as his pupils shrunk.
“If he’s not even human, could he be a demon? It’s almost impossible for a demon to become an alchemist, let alone that freak of a grade one alchemist!” Lu Yuan said.
“Clan Leader, how about the purity of the other pills?” The three grade two alchemist elders looked at Lu Rui with a burning desire in their eyes.
“Take a look for yourselves.” Lu Rui took a deep breath and took out three medicinal pill bottles as he lifted his arm to throw the three bottles toward the three grade two alchemist elders.
The three grade-two alchemist elders took over the medicinal pill bottles and could not wait to open them.
As they poured out the pills out of the bottles, their eyes were fixated on the pills that came pouring out.
“These pills seem to be quite pure as well.”
“Yeah, the purity doesn’t feel like it’s any lower than the grade one Life Recovery Pill.”
The bunch of grade three alchemist elders whispered among themselves.
“These pills… Their purity is 91% as well! How is this possible?!” Soon, one of the grade two alchemist elders said in disbelief after examining ten of the grade one pills in his hand.
‘They’re all 91% pure?’
The grade three alchemist elders around were stunned.
“The ten grade one pills in this medicinal pill bottle are all 91% pure as well!” the other grade two alchemist elder said before the crowd snapped back to their senses.
“This bottle too…” the last grade two alchemist elder proceeded to say.
An uproar was heard as if thousands of voices were reverberating through the air as the three grade two alchemist elders spoke.
“How is that possible?”
Even Lu Yuan and Lu Gui who were considered outsiders could not help but feel shocked, “Isn’t the pill purity in medicine refinement very difficult to control for an alchemist?”
“Yes, that’s right,” a grade two alchemist elder nodded. “When we alchemists refine medicine, there would always be unforeseen circumstances… Therefore, it would be very difficult to refine medicine with a precise purity figure.”
“We can usually maintain it within a certain range,” another grade two alchemist elder chimed in.
“He’s capable of maintaining the pill’s purity at 91%… This Elder Duan… He’s the ultimate freak among all freaks!” the last grade two alchemist elder said after putting the ten pills on his hand away into the medicinal pill bottle. “According to the recordings in the Lu Clan’s handbook that have been passed down for generations, even the ancestor who founded our clan could only refine grade one pills with 82% purity during his peak.”
“The high purity aside… The problem is, it’s completely unbelievable to be able to maintain every single grade one pill at a purity of 91%! If I didn’t witness it with my own eyes, I would never believe that anyone had the capabilities to achieve something like this,” Lu Rui took a deep breath and said with a deep voice.
At this very moment, even him, the Lu Clan Leader who was was from the Alchemist Family could barely keep his cool. He had completely lost himself because this incident was too shocking!
“In the entire Cloud Continent, I’m afraid it would be difficult to find another grade one alchemist that’s on the same level as Elder Duan… Other grade one alchemists… Even the Guild Master of the Alchemist Guild in the Southern Outer Land is nothing compared to him!” Lu Rui’s breathing hastened as his face was filled with excitement.
“I thought Elder Duan’s just an ordinary grade one alchemist… I never would’ve guessed that he’s such a terrifying grade one alchemist!” Lu Yuan said, looking stunned.
From what the alchemists present were saying, Lu Yuan noticed how terrifying this shockingly young grade one alchemist was.
“We have Elder Duan in the Lu Clan. What else is there to worry about?” Lu Gui’s eyes lit up.
“Perhaps it’s time that we discuss this with the honorable Elder Duan about that thing,” Lu Rui mumbled as he calmed his stirred emotion.
A tower of flames majestically rose into the sky behind a spacious mansion eastward of the Lu Clan Estate.
It was from a red-clad lady who hovered in mid-air. As the flames rose from her body, the red clothes on her body flapped, making her look like an elf on fire.
As flames rose from her body, Heaven and Earth Energy was rumbling above her head and formed Heaven and Earth Phenomenon eventually.
It was then that the silhouettes of ancient horned dragons appeared one after the other.
In a blink of an eye, the amount of ancient horned dragon silhouettes increased to 1,000. However, it was very unstable as it would fluctuate to 800 before elevating to 900. It was as if it was being restricted.
“You still can’t do it?” A young, purple-clad man stood at one side and asked as he watched the red-clad lady with every ounce of his attention.
The lady merely nodded with her drop-dead gorgeous but cold.
If looked closely, one would notice there was sweat dripping down from her forehead.
The droplets that were continuously dripping formed a flowing stream down her beautiful face.
“Get some rest,” the young purple-clad man said to the red-clad lady hovering in mid-air. He was Duan Tian Lang and the red-clad lady was Feng Tian Wu.
To be exact, she was the Feng Tian Wu who lost her memory.
However, Feng Tian Wu did not rest although Duan Ling Tian asked her to. She stubbornly increased the intensity of the flame burning around her body, allowing her fragrant sweat to continue dripping.
Flames shot up to the sky, and the Heaven and Earth Phenomenon above her head increased to more than 1,000 ancient horned dragon silhouettes.
However, the number of ancient horned dragon silhouettes dropped and fluctuated between 800 to 900.
“Sigh.” Duan Ling Tian could not help to let out a sigh as he watched. “I never expected Tian Wu who lost her memory to lose control of her Origin Energy and Profundity… To her, it’s terribly unfamiliar territory to master control over energy that she once had.”
‘I’m afraid… She might need some time to take full control of her energy,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
The current Feng Tian Wu no longer had a Fire Spirit Body. More precisely, she was reborn from the past Fire Spirit Body although the energy from the Fire Spirit Body that imploded in her body back then almost killed her.
During a critical moment, Duan Ling Tian who was devilized by the Devilseal Tablet inserted a mysterious black energy into her body to suppress the Fire Spirit Body’s energy in her body.
The energy from the Fire Spirit Body collapsed completely after being suppressed and eventually merged into her body for her own use.
However, the Origin Energy in her body was activated by the energy from the Fire Spirit Body, causing her body to go through a drastic change.
