Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Yin Yang Sect’s a first-rate force located in the Inner Land on the other side of Ruo Shui River… There’s a swift boat from the Northern Mountain Land to the Inner Land every three days. The boat belongs to the Yin Yang Sect,” Lu Rui said to Duan Ling Tian.
He did not explain what a swift boat was because he believed Elder Duan definitely knew what it was.
Swift boats had existed on Cloud Continent for more than 10,000 years.
In his opinion, it was impossible Elder Duan did not know about swift boats since he was the reincarnation of the Rebirth Martial Emperor from 10,000 years ago.
Indeed, Duan Ling Tian knew what swift boats were.
Swift boats were similar to boats. The difference was swift boats traveled in the air instead of on the water.
Swift boats were made from a special material inscribed with a lot of complicated Inscription Formations and directly powered with high-grade Origin Stones.
Due to that, swift boats were very stable when it flew in the sky.
Through the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memory, Duan Ling Tian clearly knew what sort of place the Ruo Shui River was.
Ruo Shui River was an extremely frightening and dangerous place!
It could be said that martial artists below the Martial Monarch Stage would die if they crossed the Ruo Shui River!
Danger lurked in the waters of Ruo Shui River. In addition to having an extremely shocking gravitational pull, it was also extremely corrosive. One would definitely die one was to touch it.
Even an ordinary Martial Monarch Stage martial artist would be pulled into the whirlpool if they encountered it. Not even their bones would be left behind.
Swift boats were used because of how terrifying the Ruo Shui River was.
Apart from really strong and confident Martial Monarchs, no one else dared to cross the Ruo Shui River. They could only take a swift boat to cross the Ruo Shui River.
Naturally, swift boats were not 100% safe either.
Apart from the terrifying Ruo Shui River, bandits were also another major problem.
Generally, martial artists who could afford to pay the fee to board the swift boats were cash cows in the bandits’ eyes.
Therefore, a lot of powerful bandits would take smaller swift boats to rob passing swift boats at Ruo Shui River and profit from it.
On Cloud Continent, apart from fighting the heavens, one would also have to fight with the people!
“Yin Yang Sect’s a first-rate force on the other side of Ruo Shui River?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes brightened, and his breathing quickened again.
“Ke’Er, Little Fei’Er… I’ll see you guys soon,” Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself. A warm smile appeared on his face.
After so many years, both of them would certainly be more beautiful.
There was a glint in Duan Ling Tian’s eyes. There was a hint of anticipation on his face. He could not wait to be reunited with them.
“Elder Duan, if there’s nothing else… I’ll go and have a look,” Lu Rui said when he saw Duan Ling Tian was distracted.
“En.” Duan Ling Tian recovered and nodded. “Go ahead.”
After Lu Rui left, Duan Ling Tian waited at the main hall for Lu Rui.
Half an hour later, Lu Rui returned and brought several materials that he needed. “Elder Duan, our Lu Clan’s treasure vault doesn’t everything you need… I managed to find some in the Former Clan Leader’s collection.”
“En.” Duan Ling Tian nodded and took out his grade one spirit weapon cauldron in front of Lu Rui. At the same time, a raging flame appeared in his hands.
“Weapon Flame?!” Lu Rui’s eyes brightened.
He had learned that the Rebirth Martial Emperor was not just a powerhouse at the peak of Martial Dao and a top alchemist, he was also a top weapon craftsman and Inscription Master from the journals that his ancestors handed down.
Today, he finally saw the third reincarnation of the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s Weapon Flame.
However, the Weapon Flame seemed a little different?
“Duan…Elder Duan, what’s this Weapon Flame? As far as I know, the color of weapons craftsmen’s Weapon Flame should correspond to the grade similar to alchemists’ Pill Fire right? Why’s your Weapon Flame dark gold?”
Lu Rui looked at the dancing dark gold flame in Duan Ling Tian’s hands in confusion. He had never seen nor heard of such a weird Weapon Flame.
Duan Ling Tian smiled faintly and ignored Lu Rui. He lifted his arm and melted the materials Lu Rui had given him into several pools of liquid.
“How’s that possible?!” Lu Rui’s eyes widened. The shock was written all over his face.
It was natural for him to feel shocked. Among the materials he found for Elder Duan in the treasure vault, the Lu Clan kept a record for one of them.
Nearly 1,000 years ago, a Lu Clan ancestor who was a grade one alchemist had failed to liquify that material even after spending three days and three nights refining it with grade one Pill Fire.
However, the dark golden flame in Elder Duan’s hands liquified it in just a moment.
“A grade one Pill Fire is not inferior to a grade one Weapon Flame… This means it would be difficult for the grade one Weapon Flame to liquify the material too!” Lu Rui’s heartbeat quickened. He thought he could hear his own heart beating.
At that moment, all he felt was shock.
“Unless… the flame in Elder Duan’s hand has surpassed a grade one Weapon Flame?
Lu Rui was taken aback. ‘According to the journal handed down by the founder of Lu Clan 10,000 years ago, the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s attainment in the Medicine Refinement Dao was already above a grade one alchemist!’
‘Could it be his attainment in the Weapon Refinement Dao has also surpassed a grade one weapon craftsman as well? The Weapon Flame he condensed is a higher grade than a grade one Weapon Flame?”
The more Lu Rui thought about it, the more shocked he became.
Lu Rui’s thoughts were still spinning when the dark gold flame in Duan Ling Tian’s hands enveloped the grade one spirit weapon cauldron and liquified it. The liquid began to boil and roil in just an instant.
Hu! Hu! Hu!
Following that, Duan Ling Tian did not relax. Instead, he retrieved several materials from his Spatial Ring before he melted it and mixed it with the existing pools of liquid.
In the beginning, the pools of liquids were extremely repellant to each other.
However, when the dark gold flame swept out and enveloped them, they quickly merged into one.
From the beginning until the end, it only took half an hour.
The silhouette of a new cauldron began to form in the dark gold flame.
After another half an hour, an entirely new cauldron fell into Duan Ling Tian’s hands as the flame vanished.
“Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Weapon cauldron!” Duan Ling Tian smiled in satisfaction when he looked at the cauldron in his hand. It was the first Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Weapon cauldron he had refined.
“This cauldron…” Lu Rui finally recovered from his shock at this moment. His gaze did not leave the cauldron in Duan Ling Tian’s hands.
Lu Clan had several grade one spirit weapon cauldrons left behind by their ancestors from 10,000 years ago.
However, in Lu Rui’s eyes, all those grade one spirit weapon cauldrons could not compete with the one before his eyes. ‘This cauldron seemed to be better than a grade one spirit weapon cauldron!’
Before Lu Rui could react, Duan Ling Tian made another move.
As he lifted his hand, another dark gold flame appeared in his hand.
“This is…Pill Fire?” Lu Rui gulped when he saw the scene before his eyes.
Dark gold Pill Fire!
He had never seen nor heard about it before.
Soon after, Lu Rui saw Duan Ling Tian retrieving a pile of medicinal materials that he was very familiar with. He recognized them with just one glance. “It’s medicinal materials to refine grade one Life Recovery Pills!”
Lu Rui was so fascinated with Duan Ling Tian’s method of refining medicine that he just stood there staring. He had forgotten about time and everything else.
After an hour.
Duan Ling Tian raised his arm and smacked the cauldron. The dark gold flame formed a light shield around the cauldron’s spout.
Sou! Sou! Sou!
Instantly, several streaks of light shot out of the spout through the light shield formed by the dark gold flame before it fell into Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
It was pills!
After Duan Ling Tian put his cauldron away, he opened up his hand that contained the pills. There were ten glowing pills that emitted a strong medicinal aroma.
When Duan Ling Tian was about to put the ten pills he had refined into a pill bottle, a voice entered his ears. “Duan… Elder Duan, can I have a look?”
When he glanced over, he noticed that Lu Rui was staring at the pills in his hands.
In reply, a pill shot toward Lu Rui with just a flick of Duan Ling Tian’s fingers.
Lu Rui reached out and carefully caught the pill in his hand.
In the past, he had seen many grade one Life Recovery Pills. However, the one in his hand now seemed as though it weighed 1,000 tonnes.
This was because the purity of the pill was extraordinary.
Lu Rui shifted his gaze over to Duan Ling Tian and asked, “Elder Duan… This grade one Life Recovery Pill’s purity is more than 97%?”
He was lucky enough to have seen a grade one Life Recovery Pills with 97% purity a month ago. Although it was just a glance, he could tell that grade one Life Recovery Pill was inferior to the one in his hand.
“En.” Duan Ling Tian nodded and casually said, “The grade one Life Recovery Pills I refined this time only have 99% purity. It’s just passable”
Lu Rui’s eyes widened, and the corner of his mouth twitched. He felt like he was on different wavelength from the purple-clad young man standing before him.
“Something’s amiss!” Lu Rui seemed to have realized something.
Earlier, the number of medicinal materials Elder Duan took out seemed to be the standard number of medicinal materials.
To be able to refine ten grade one Life Recovery Pills with the standard number of medicinal materials?
“Does that mean… Elder Duan’ success rate of forming pills when refining grade one Life Recovery Pills is 100%?” Lu Rui was stunned.
