Chapter 386: Profound Nascent Pill
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian, who’d returned into the pergola, had become the center of attention as expected.
“22 year old fourth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artist…” Besides the three higher-up from the Seven Star Sword Sect, the higher-ups from the other four great sects looked at Duan Ling Tian with extremely complicated gazes.
In the past, the lack of strength of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s younger generation was something they’d noticed, and they originally thought the Seven Star Sword Sect would sink into decline like this.
But who knew that such a monster had actually appeared in the Seven Star Sword Sect!
“This Seven Star Sword Sect disciple in only 22 years old and has already stepped into the fourth level of the Nascent Soul Stage? He’s simply abnormal!”
“Such natural talent surpasses every one of the five great young masters of our Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.”
“Exactly, even that person who’s the leader of the five great young masters was still far inferior to the Seven Star Sword Sect disciple in terms of natural talent.”
“Duan Ling Tian… He is like his name, possessing the potential to soar above the heavens! That Mountain Split Sect disciple wasn’t able to notice this and provoked him. Not only were both his legs fractured, he was even angered to the point of fainting.”
The disciples of the various sects recovered from their shock and were all astounded.
The scene before their eyes had completely exceeded their expectations!
If they didn’t see it with their own two eyes, they wouldn’t dare believe that a martial artist with such monstrous natural talent had appeared…
“In the history of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom, there seems to have never been an existence who had stepped into the fourth level of the Nascent Soul Stage at the mere age of 22.” The Snow Moon Sect’s Liu Yu sighed.
She felt her own natural talent was extremely high and was only inferior to the five great young masters in the entire Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom…
In the past, she was only wholeheartedly convinced of the five great young masters.
But today, when she saw the strength this Seven Star Sword Sect disciple displayed with her own two eyes, only now did she realize that it turned out that the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom still contained an existence that possessed a natural talent that surpassed the five great young masters hidden within.
“Such a monstrous disciple has actually appeared in the Seven Star Sword Sect?” Burning flames jumped about in the eyes of Saber Young Master, Long Yun, as he sized up Duan Ling Tian with interest, and he wished for nothing more than to charge over and spar with Duan Ling Tian. “Duan Ling Tian, right? I, Long Yun, have committed you to memory.”
Presently, it wasn’t just Long Yun who’d remembered the name Duan Ling Tian. Perhaps everyone present wouldn’t be able to forget this name in their entire lifetime.
Fourth level of the Nascent Soul Stage at the age of 22, such accomplishments determined this person was extraordinary.
Duan Ling Tian remained unmoved as he sat in the pergola and faced the numerous gazes that swept over, and he had a carefree expression.
Such composure caused many people present to praise secretly. “Not only is the natural talent of this Duan Ling Tian high, his disposition is extremely firm as well… Neither humble nor arrogant, truly difficult to come by!”
“Sect Leader Linghu, such a monstrous disciple appearing in your sect is truly a cause for congratulations.” As the host, the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader was the first to recover from his shock, and he congratulated Linghu Jin Hong.
The words of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader was like a wick that lit a fire, lighting ablaze the atmosphere at the scene.
The Sect Leaders of the other three great sects all congratulated Linghu Jin Hong as well. “Congratulations Sect Leader Linghu, the Seven Star Sword Sect has a qualified successor.”
“Everyone is too kind.” Linghu Jin Hong lightly smiled as he nodded in an extremely well mannered and appropriate fashion.
The two Peak Masters Zheng Fan and Ke Zhen, felt extremely honored as they stood by Linghu Jin Hong’s side…
It wasn’t the first time they’d followed the Sect Leader to watch the Martial Competition, but it was still the first time they were able to hold their heads up high.
For a time, their gazes descended onto Duan Ling Tian in unison as if they’d pre-discussed it earlier, and brilliant smiles hung on both their faces.
They knew clearly in their hearts that everything they were able to enjoy now was all thanks to Duan Ling Tian.
Of course, the expressions of some people were unsightly.
Huang Ji who sat in the same pergola as Duan Ling Tian clenched his fist tightly, and his eyes revealed boundless resentment…
As far as he was concerned, Duan Ling Tian seized away what should have been his.
Presently, Duan Ling Tian was even likely to become the future Sect Leader of the Seven Star Sword Sect.
He was unwilling to accept this!
He was the personal disciple of the Seven Star Sword Sect’s Leader, the existence that would become the next Sect Leader of the Seven Star Sword Sect.
“No one can take away my place as Sect Leader… Duan Ling Tian, you’re no exception!” Huang Ji’s gloomy gaze shot at Duan Ling Tian, and it seemed waiting to swallow Duan Ling Tian at any moment.
“The Martial Competition of the five great sects will continue!” When he saw the fainted Mountain Split Sect disciple being carried away by his companions to the pergola, the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader and the host of the competition abruptly spoke.
Although his voice wasn’t loud, it entered into the ears of everyone present. “Besides the usual prizes for the first three in the Martial Competition as always… I will personally give out a Profound Nascent Pill as the prize for the first in the Martial Competition.”
Profound Nascent Pill!
The Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader had only just finished speaking, when waves of gasping sounded out within the Martial Competition Courtyard, as expected…
A Profound Nascent Pill was a grade six medicinal pill.
Although the Profound Nascent Pill was only a grade six medicinal pill, practically no grade six alchemist was able to refine it.
At least, in the history of Cloud Continent, a grade six alchemist refining a Profound Nascent Pill was unheard off…
Even if a grade five alchemist were to refine it, the percentage of successfully refining this Profound Nascent Pill was pitifully low.
Not even 1%.
Thus, the value of the Profound Nascent Pill could be easily imagined.
Of course, the reason the Profound Nascent Pill was valuable wasn’t only because of this.
The most valuable aspect of the Profound Nascent Pill was its medicinal strength.
Supposedly, in the next half a year after consumption, the person who consumed it would experience an extremely great increase in their natural talent…
During the period the medicinal strength remained, the person’s cultivation would advance by leaps and bounds.
Cultivating half a year could compare to cultivating for a year at ordinary times.
“Profound Nascent Pill!”
At this moment, besides Duan Ling Tian still possessing a calm expression as if he completely didn’t hear the Sect Leader of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect, all the disciples of the five great sects including the Saber Young Master, Long Yu, had eyes that lit up.
A single Profound Nascent Pill was sufficient to allow his cultivation to yield twice the result half the effort…
After consuming the Profound Nascent Pill, cultivating for a half a year would be like cultivating for a year in the past!
The Profound Nascent Pill was an extremely great temptation to him.
“Profound Nascent Pill?” Duan Ling Tian had a calm expression and flowing lights revolved in his eyes. “If I didn’t consume the 10,000 Year Stalactite Milk, this Profound Nascent Pill would perhaps by of use to me… Now, even if you give me a hundred Profound Nascent Pills, it would be of no use in the slightest.
“Only because my current natural talent is already at the extreme of the martial artists in the Cloud Continent!” As a person who’d fused with the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian naturally knew what the Profound Nascent Pill was.
The Profound Nascent Pill was a type of grade six medicinal pill that was extremely far apart in terms of expense and return.
It was impossible for a grade six alchemist to successfully refine it.
Even if a grade five alchemist were to refine it, the percentage of success wouldn’t exceed 1%…
“Even if it was the Rebirth Martial Emperor after he’d become a Royal Grade Alchemist, he was only barely able to refine the Profound Nascent Pill with a 100% success rate!”
The refinement of a Profound Nascent Pill was related to the level of pill fire.
The higher level the pill fire, the higher the rate to successfully refine a Profound Nascent Pill.
Through the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, Duan Ling Tian found out that those high grade alchemist wouldn’t waste huge amounts of time, energy, and materials to refine this medicinal pill that was known as the medicinal pill with the lowest success rate in Cloud Continent.
Only because refining a Profound Nascent Pill was absolutely arduous, but fruitless.
“The materials to refine a Profound Nascent Pill required 100,000 gold… One hundred times would be ten million gold! Even if a grade five alchemist were to refine it and used up the materials worth ten million gold, the alchemist still might not be able to refine a Profound Nascent Pill successfully.” Duan Ling Tian knew clearly in his heart that the success rate of the Profound Nascent Pill was low to the point is had reached an astounding level.
During the second lifetime of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, he’d once seen an obstinate grade five alchemist that went mad for the sake of refining a Profound Nascent Pill.
Not because of anything else, but only because that grade five alchemist had spent 100 million gold worth of materials and was still unable to refine even one Profound Nascent Pill…
In terms of cost, the Profound Nascent Pill was a medicinal pill that had a difference between cost and return like the difference between the heaven and the earth.
At least, Duan Ling Tian wasn’t interested in the slightest towards refining a Profound Nascent Pill.
“Perhaps, only those alchemists who really don’t lack money and possess sufficient patience would refine the Profound Nascent Pill… The medicinal strength of the Profound Nascent Pill is indeed shocking. But the person that consumes it wouldn’t think anything of it, but refining it was a type of torture and torment to an alchemist.” Duan Ling Tian knew this very well.
“Of course, there’s also an exception… There’re perhaps an extremely few grade five alchemists that struck great luck, and were able to refine it the first time.”
Right at the moment this thought arose in Duan Ling Tian’s heart.
“The Profound Nascent Pill in my hand was accidentally refined by a grade five alchemist that’s a good friend of mine, and he only spent a single portion of materials.” The words of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader entered into Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
“There really is an alchemist who struck great luck?” Duan Ling Tian was stunned.
After all, although the success rate of a grade five alchemist was fixed at 1%, if the alchemist struck great luck, then a grade five alchemist still have the chance to refine a Profound Nascent Pill successfully in one try.
In the case that the alchemist was unfortunate, then even if the alchemist refined it a thousand times, he might not be able to refine a single Profound Nascent Pill.
The friend of the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader undoubtedly belonged to the former category.
Struck great luck!
“So that’s how it is.”
“I was wondering, why someone would refine a Profound Nascent Pill… Sect Leader Long, the luck of that friend of yours is really heaven defying!”
“Sect Leader Long, you took out this Profound Nascent Pill and made it the prize of the first in the Martial Competition because you’re probably intending to bestow it to the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Saber Young Master, your foster son, Long Yun, right?” Besides Linghu Jin Hong, the Sect Leaders of the other sects looked at the Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader and spoke out successively.
The Demonic Lotusblade Sect’s Leader lightly smiled, then looked at the Sect Leader of the Snow Moon Sect that spoke the last. “Sect Leader Xue, why do you boost the morale of my foster son and belittle your own personal disciple, Liu Yue? Liu Yue and my foster son are both sixth level Nascent Soul Stage martial artists, and Liu Yue similarly has the opportunity to obtain the first in the Martial Competition as well.”
