Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Elder Huo’s words made Duan Ling Tian excited.
‘This is something good?’ That was the first thought that appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s mind.
At the same time, he looked outside the window. His eyes were locked on the item in the hands of the Rare Treasure Pavilion’s Overseer… There was an orb in the Rare Treasure Pavilion’s Overseer’s hand.
It was a black orb with complicated patterns on it. Duan Ling Tian felt dizzy, and his eyes hurt when he looked at the orb. There seemed to be some kind of charm on the black orb. It seemed as though it had transformed into a bottomless abyss and was engulfing his soul when he looked at it. If it was possible, he did not want to experience that feeling again.
Thus, he turned away and did not look at it again.
“What kind of orb is that?”
“Oh, God! I only glanced at it, and it felt like it was taking my soul away.”
“This orb is extraordinary!”
At the same time, people began to whisper among each other at the auction. Most of them were afraid of the orb.
It was clear that they had the same experience as Duan Ling Tian.
“Everyone, our Rare Treasure Pavilion newly appointed Pavilion Master, Lin Qing Rong, obtained this black orb by chance previously… I’m sure all of you experienced an uncomfortable feeling when you looked at it,” the Overseer of the Rare Treasure Pavilion said as he stood on the auction stage.
“What’s the function of this orb?” Someone asked.
“Our Pavilion Master obtained this orb ten years ago… Currently, apart from knowing it gives an uncomfortable feeling, we haven’t found out what is so unique about it,” the Rare Treasure Pavilion’s Overseer continued to speak, “But our Pavilion Master had our honorable Master City Governor looked at it previously… Even the Master City Governor couldn’t break the orb.”
The crowd gasped at the Rare Treasure Pavilion’s Overseer’s words.
The people present came from Mound Hill City and the border areas. They might not have met the City Governor of Mound Hill City, but they knew the City Governor was the No.1 powerhouse in Mound Hill City and its border areas.
“Even Master City Governor couldn’t break it?”
“It seems really tough.”
Many of them were surprised.
“However, when all is said and done, apart from being tough and giving off an uncomfortable feeling to people who looked at it, this thing is impractical,” someone said.
“It’s far more than just impractical! Whoever buys this will have to look at it at least a few times… I glanced at it once earlier, and the feeling’s just too uncomfortable.”
“That’s right! I don’t even dare to look at it now… Wouldn’t it be just like a punishment if we purchase it?”
Many people discussed this among themselves with fear written on their faces.
Duan Ling Tian who had turned away from the orb could not help but ask Elder Huo, “Elder Huo, you asked me to get it… What’s so special about it?”
“It’s the One-eyed Devil Vulture’s eyeball… If you can refine it, your eyes will gain the One-eyed Devil Vulture’s ability! It’ll be a major boost for you,” Elder Huo said.
“One-eyed Devil Vulture? What’s that?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
“It’s a very powerful and rare beast… There’s none even in Planet Yan Huang. I can’t believe there’s a One-eyed Devil Vulture’s eyeball here on this planet,” Elder Huo said.
“What’s so special about its eyeball?” Duan Ling Tian asked again.
“Of course it’s special! The One-eyed Devil Vulture is powerful because of its one and only eye… Its eye has a terrifying ability. You’ll find out about the ability when you’ve refined it in the future,” Elder Huo said, “It’s urgent. Just get it now.”
“Elder Huo, are you sure I’ll be able to refine it? According to the Overseer of the Rare Treasure Pavilion, even a Saint Rudiment powerhouse couldn’t do anything to it,” Duan Ling Tian said when he recalled the Rare Treasure Pavilion’s Overseer’s words.
“Naturally, you won’t be able to refine it at the moment… But with the help of my Sun Divine Flame, it’ll be easy for you to refine it,” Elder Huo said.
After listening to Elder Huo’s words, Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and stopped hesitating. He then looked out of the window.
At this moment, a few people had already bid for the item.
3,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones!
Everyone became silent as soon as the price was named.
It was clear that most people had no interest in the One-eyed Devil Vulture’s eye…
Naturally, they did not know it was a One-eyed Devil Vulture’s eyeball, they thought it was just a strange orb.
“The guest in Room No.4 bid 3,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones… Do I have a higher bid? If not, I’ll begin the countdown,” the Rare Treasure Pavilion’s Overseer said slowly as he stood on the auction stage.
“Three.” Soon after, he began counting down.
Just as he was about to say, “One”, Duan Ling Tian said, “5,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones!”
5,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones!
The Overseer of the Rare Treasure Pavilion closed his mouth when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. His emotion was stirred as he said, “The guest in Room No.1 bids 5,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones! 5,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones!”
“Is there anyone who wants to bid higher?” The Rare Treasure Pavilion’s Overseer asked three times, but nobody placed a bid.
“This kid is good! The bidder bid 3,000, and he went up to 5,000 right away… He doesn’t feel the pain since he’s not spending his own Saint Stones,” Lin Qing Rong who was in Room No.2 said. He was not sure if he should be angry or laughing.
However, it was all just words. The strange orb that was currently being put up for auction was his personal belonging. The Saint Stones would still end up in his pocket no matter how much it was. Thus, it would not affect him no matter how high Duan Ling Tian had bid.
“Hmph! It’s just a stupid, strange orb. Using 3,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones to purchase it just for the sake of collecting it is already considered an astronomical sum… Whatever, he can have it.” A soft scoff came from Room No.4.
It was the person who had bid 3,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones before Duan Ling Tian did.
Many people present at the auction agreed with that person’s words.
“5,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones just for an orb. What a spendthrift!”
“I wouldn’t be willing to spend like that even if I have 100,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones… It would be torture even if I were to buy it just for the sake of collection.”
“Hmph! I might even reject this if someone gives it to me.”
The crowd discussed among themselves. They thought Duan Ling Tian who was in Room No.1 was stupid for spending so much.
However, Duan Ling Tian did not mind them at all.
Those people treated him like an idiot like, but to him, those people were the idiots. Idiots who did not know what they were losing out on.
Who was Elder Huo?
He was the Three-legged Golden Crow!
He was a Variant!
Elder Huo’s standards were high considering his experience.
How could an item recommended by Elder Huo be ordinary?
Currently, Duan Ling Tian felt a little excited when he thought of the benefits the One-eyed Devil Vulture’s eye would give him… He believed it would greatly benefit him.
After the Overseer of the Rare Treasure Pavilion finished counting down, the One-eyed Devil Vulture’s eyeball successfully became Duan Ling Tian’s belonging.
Soon after, someone sent him the One-eyed Devil Vulture’s eyeball.
Perhaps Lin Qing Rong had briefed the servant beforehand, he did not ask Duan Ling Tian for Saint Stones when he sent the item. He left after he delivered the item.
“Elder Huo, how do I refine this?” Duan Ling Tian lifted his head and asked as he played with the orb in his hand. If it was possible, he did not want to look at the eyeball again. He did not want to experience the feeling of his soul being taken away again.
“Let’s wait until the auction is over,” Elder Huo said.
It was clear that Elder Huo would only tell Duan Ling Tian about it after the auction ended.
“Hmm.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. Although he was eager to find out, it made no sense for him to insist since Elder Huo had already said that.
After putting the orb away, Duan Ling Tian thought to himself, ‘If Elder Huo didn’t tell me, I wouldn’t know it’s a One-eyed Devil Vulture’s eyeball!’
The auction went on after Duan Ling Tian obtained the One-eyed Devil Vulture’s eyeball. The auction items were sold one after another.
After 27 items were sold, the three items for the finale of the auction were finally brought out. It was three Human Rank Prominent Saint Grade Martial Tactics!
What was worth mentioning was that Duan Ling Tian managed to get himself another item before the finale.
It was a material that he could use to restore the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda… It was one of the high-grade materials that Elder Huo had mentioned before.
Although it was less effective compared to a Five-clawed Divine Dragon’s dragon orb, the difference was minor.
According to Elder Huo, the material could fix 10% of the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda.
At the same time, the atmosphere became charged when the Saint Grade Martial Tactics were brought out… People were bidding crazily, and Duan Ling Tian’s jaw dropped when he witnessed it.
Very quickly, the first Saint Grade Martial Tactic was sold at 280,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones.
‘No wonder Senior Lin only allowed me to pick items apart from the three Saint Grade Martial Tactics… If I obtain even one of them, I’m afraid he might feel like killing himself,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
200,000 eighth-grade Saint Stones were equivalent to 200 fifth-grade Saint Stones… That was almost 1/4 of the fifth-grade Saint Stones Duan Ling Tian had with him.
“Elder Huo, what’s the difference between the third level and second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda?” Duan Ling Tian asked Elder Huo when everyone else was bidding for the second Saint Grade Martial Tactic.
“There’s a Celestial Supreme Treasure called the Astonished God Halberd at the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda… Apart from that, the Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy there is even more concentrated. Also, time flows even slower on that level,” Elder Huo said slowly.
“How slow?” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes lit up.
Due to the Celestial Supreme Treasure, the Jasper Celestial Sword, he found on the second level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda, he was not interested in the Celestial Supreme Treasure, Astonished God Halberd, at all.
Why would he be interested in something that he could not lift anyway?
What he cared more about was the Heaven and Earth Spirit Energy since it was related to his cultivation environment… Naturally, the most important thing was the speed of the time flow.
“One day on the third level is equivalent to five days outside,” Elder Huo said.
