Chapter 1387: Get it!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
As soon as one successfully cultivated Copper Shirt, one’s body would have a layer of faint copper glow when it was cast as though one had just put on a copper shirt.
“Eh? Why is this Copper Shirt so easy to cultivate?” Duan Ling Tian discovered something.
His True Energy had quickly spread through his body via the 32 Saint Veins.
Furthermore, he discovered it only took his True Energy one round of rotation to cultivate Copper Shirt to the Fundamental Awareness Stage.
“Is this real?” Duan Ling Tian’s jaw dropped. “What’s happening?” He was puzzled. The only thing he could do was to figure out the answer himself as he continued to cultivate the defensive technique, Copper Shirt. Although he did not any have any further breakthrough during the second round of the True Energy rotation, there was a significant improvement.
Duan Ling Tian finally figured out the answer as he continued with the rotation. “I see, I see… It’s as though this Copper Shirt is made for me!”
He discovered the higher one’s body quality was and the more Saint Veins one had, the faster the speed of cultivating the defensive technique, Copper Shirt, was.
Putting his Saint Veins aside, Duan Ling Tian’s body was even stronger than a Five-clawed Divine Dragon’s true form.
He was at the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage, and he already opened 32 Saint Veins… Meanwhile, some people at the Paramount Mortal Shedding Stage who were not very talented might not even have 32 Saint Veins in their bodies.
It was fated that Duan Ling Tian could cultivate Copper Shirt at such a quick speed due to his body that was stronger than a Five-clawed Divine Dragon and the 32 Saint Veins he had opened.
That was the reason why he said Copper Shirt was made for him.
“Looking at the cultivation speed… I think it won’t take too long before I cultivate it to the highest stage which is the Impeccable Stage.” Duan Ling Tian’s emotion was a little stirred.
The auction had begun without him realizing it. He only regained his senses and stopped cultivating the defensive technique, Copper Shirt, when he heard the noises coming from outside.
He saw a middle-aged man standing on the auction stage through the window.
Duan Ling Tian knew the middle-aged man. If he was not mistaken, the middle-aged man was the Overseer of the Rare Treasure Pavilion. He was the person who took him to see the Pavilion Master, Lin Qing Rong, this morning.
The middle-aged man was trying to get the crowd excited, and it seemed to work as he continued speaking.
Soon after, the auction began.
The first auction item was a Human Rank Mediocre Saint Weapon. It was a three-foot-long sword.
“Human Rank Mediocre Saint Weapon? That’s the best the Rare Treasure Pavilion can come up with?”
“A sword that’s a Human Rank Mediocre Saint Weapon… There are at least ten stores in Mound Hill City that are selling this.”
“We came to the Rare Treasure Pavilion to obtain rare treasures, not to obtain something that’s easily available on the streets… Are you trying to make a fool out of us?”
An uproar broke out when the first auction item was presented. This was because the auction item was a Human Rank Mediocre Saint Weapon that was easily obtained outside. It caused people to feel speechless that such an item appeared in the Rare Treasure Pavilion.
“Is it possible that this Human Rank Mediocre Saint Weapon is different from the others?” Duan Ling Tian was skeptical.
He thought since Lin Qing Rong had just been assigned the position of Pavilion Master of Rare Treasure Pavilion, he would not present an easily obtainable item that could ruin his reputation…
The truth proved that Duan Ling Tian was right in his speculation. The Human Rank Mediocre Saint Weapon was not ordinary.
When faced with the people’s censure, the Overseer of the Rare Treasure Pavilion did not stop smiling from the beginning until the end. It was as though he did not hear the words people were saying.
As the noise died down, he cleared his throat and said slowly, “Everyone! The Rare Treasure Pavilion will not ruin its own reputation. Although the first auction item is just a Human Rank Mediocre Saint Weapon, it is unique.”
The Overseer of the Rare Treasure Pavilion’s words caught everyone’s attention.
“There’s a Saint Inscription carved by a Saint Inscription Master on this Human Rank Mediocre Saint Weapon,” the Overseer of the Rare Treasure Pavilion said as he looked at all the curious faces.
Saint Inscription Master!
At this moment, everyone in the crowd gasped.
“I was just wondering… Why would the Rare Treasure Pavilion put some ordinary Human Rank Mediocre Saint Weapon up for auction. As it turns out, it’s a Saint Weapon with a Saint Inscription carved on it.”
“The Rare Treasure Pavilion is really showing their sincerity! The first auction item they brought out is a Saint Weapon carved with a Saint Inscription.”
Those who were mocking the Rare Treasure Pavilion earlier were now complimenting it instead.
“A Saint Weapon carved with a Saint Inscription?” The eyes of Duan Ling Tian who was sitting in the private room immediately lit up. He was curious about Saint Inscription Masters from the Dao Martial Saint Land. This was because he was an Inscription Master himself back on Cloud Continent.
Inscriptions and Saint Inscription seemed similar. However, Duan Ling Tian was uncertain if the two were related to each other.
‘If they’re related, I might be able to become a Saint Inscription Master in the future,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
‘I wonder… What kind of Saint Inscription is carved on that Human Rank Mediocre Saint Weapon?’ Duan Ling Tian looked at the sword in hands of the Overseer of the Rare Treasure Pavilion. He was curious about it.
At the same time, many people began to ask about the Saint Inscription. This was so they could find out the purpose of the inscription and decide if they wanted to bid on it or not.
“Everyone, the Human Rank Mediocre Saint Sword in my hand has a Sun Saint Inscription carved on it… When True Energy is inserted into it, the sword will turn into a scorching sun temporarily to distract the opponent,” the Overseer of the Rare Treasure Pavilion said, “Of course, the Sun Saint Inscription will only target the opponent. It will not affect the wielder of the sword and the people in the surroundings.”
At this moment, the crowd became even more excited.
The Sun Saint Inscription could ‘blind’ the opponent’s eyes for a short period of time during critical moments… During that fleeting moment, the opponent was just like a lamb that was waiting to be slaughtered.
‘There’s a similar Inscription… The difference is it’ll target everyone when it’s activated,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Compared to Inscription, Saint Inscription seemed to be much more advanced and much more user-friendly.
“I can see that everyone’s very interested in the Saint Sword that I’m holding… Alright, the auction for this item will begin now!” The Overseer of the Rare Treasure Pavilion said slowly after getting everyone excited, “Everyone knows that ordinary Human Rank Mediocre Saint Weapons are priced around 1,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones each.”
“To reward everyone for their great support to the Rare Treasure Pavilion, the starting bid for this Human Rank Mediocre Grade Saint Weapon with a Sun Saint Inscription carved on it will start at 1,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones as well!”
“You’ll have to add at least 1,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones every time you bid!” The voice of the Overseer of the Rare Treasure Pavilion was filled with True Energy, and it spread throughout the auction venue into each and every private room.
‘Reward everyone for their great support? The bid starts at 1,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones?’ Duan Ling Tian shook his head as he smiled. He thought what the Rare Treasure Pavilion’s Overseer said did not make sense… If the item was good, the price would soar even if the starting bid was one ninth-grade Saint Stones.
“1,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones!” Someone bid as soon as the Overseer of the Rare Treasure Pavilion finished speaking.
“2,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones!” Someone else followed immediately after that.
“10,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones!” After two people made their bid, a loud voice came from one of the private rooms. That person directly bid 10,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones.
“Should I join in the fun?” Duan Ling Tian was excited when he thought of Lin Qing Rong’s promise.
However, he eventually gave up on that thought. “Nevermind, I don’t have any use for the sword now… Moreover, there might be something I want later in the auction.
Lin Qing Rong had promised to give him two auction items.
Naturally, he was only allowed to pick anything apart from the three Human Rank Prominent Saint Grade Martial Tactics… There was no doubt the three Saint Grade Martial Tactics would definitely be auctioned off at an insane price.
“30,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones!”
When Duan Ling Tian regained his senses, the price of the Human Rank Mediocre Saint Sword with Sun Saint Inscription had already reached 30,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones.
This was the final price.
‘A Human Rank Mediocre Saint Sword with a Saint Inscription carved on it is 29,000 Saint Stones more expensive than Human Rank Mediocre Saint Swords without any Saint Inscription on it?’ Duan Ling Tian’s eyes widened. Did it mean that being a Saint Inscription Master was lucrative?
A Saint Inscription was worth 29,000 Saint Stones?
He had no idea the sword had only fetched such a high price because it was rare… There was almost no Saint Inscription Master at the border areas of Mound Hill City.
If this was a place with many Saint Inscription Masters, the sword would not be sold at such a high price. It was just like the saying, ‘When the fruit is rare, its taste is the sweetest’.
However, compared to Saint Refinement Masters who focused on crafting weapons and refining medicine… Saint Inscription Masters and Dao Talisman Masters indeed earned more. This was because there were many Saint Refinement Masters, but the demand was low.
Soon after, the Overseer of the Rare Treasure Pavilion took out the second auction item… It was a Dao Talisman that could kill a person below the Mortal Shedding Stage in just one blow. Naturally, it was only a single-attack Dao Talisman.
However, it would affect people at the Mortal Shedding Stage too… It could grievously injure Martial and Dao Cultivators at the Early Mortal Shedding Stage and lightly injure Martial and Dao Cultivators at the Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage.
It would be futile to use it on Martial and Dao Cultivators at the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage.
Duan Ling Tian might have been interested in this Dao Talisman if he was still on Cloud Continent… However, he was not interested in it now.
Currently, he could kill people below the Mortal Shedding Stage in one blow. Moreover, he could also kill people at the Early Mortal Shedding Stage and Intermediate Mortal Shedding Stage in one blow as well.
He was even confident he could kill people at the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage in three hits as long as they were not at the peak of the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage.
‘If I manage to cultivate Copper Shirt to the Impeccable Stage… I can easily kill someone at the peak of the Mastery Mortal Shedding Stage,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
What surprised Duan Ling Tian was the Dao Talisman that he had zero interest in was sold at over 20,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones.
‘These people are such spendthrift!’ Duan Ling Tian could not help but feel shocked.
Subsequently, more and more auction items were presented… However, Duan Ling Tian was not interested in any of them.
Elder Huo’s voice entered Duan Ling Tian’s ears when the seventeenth item was brought out. “Get this!”
