Chapter 468: Refining Void Advancement Pills
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
A 23 year old grade five alchemist and grade five weapons craftsman.
Once it spread out, it could be imagined how many alchemists and weapons craftsmen would be ashamed to the point they wanted to knock into a wall and die…
However, all this was nothing to Duan Ling Tian.
To him, so long as his cultivation was sufficient and his Origin Energy satisfied the conditions, he would be able to condense the Pill Fire and Weapon Flame at the limit of his cultivation.
“Once my cultivation breaks through to the first level of the Void Prying Stage, my Pill Fire and Weapon Flame will be able to improve once again and improve to the fourth grade! At that time, I’ll be a grade four alchemist and grade four weapons craftsman.” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flashed and his face was filled with confidence.
“Unfortunately, the advancement of the Pill Fire and Weapon Flame after that is instead comparatively difficult…” Duan Ling Tian sighed when he thought of Pill Fire and Weapon Flame at the third grade and above.
Grade Four Pill Fire and Weapon Flame could be condensed with Origin Energy at the first level of the Void Prying Stage.
Grade Three Pill Fire and Weapon Flame required Origin Energy at the first level of the Void Initiation Stage to be condensed.
Grade Two Pill Fire and Weapon Flame instead required Origin Energy at the first level of the Void Interpretation Stage to condense.
Grade One Pill Fire and Weapon Flame corresponded to the Origin Energy at the first level of the Void Transformation Stage.
“If one wants to become a grade one alchemist or grade one weapons craftsman, then besides requiring an extremely high natural talent in alchemy and weapon’s refinement, the requirement of natural talent in the Martial Dao is extremely high as well. After all, if one’s cultivation is unable to break through to the Void Transformation Stage, then it would be utterly impossible to condense grade one Pill Fire and grade one Weapon Flame with the Origin Energy.” Duan Ling Tian swiftly searched through the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor, and he couldn’t help but sigh with emotion in his heart.
In Cloud Continent, the reason grade one alchemists and grade one weapons craftsmen were scarce was because there were very few people that could achieve such accomplishments in two domains.
All the people in Cloud Continent that were able to become grade one alchemists and grade one weapons craftsmen were all top figures amongst geniuses.
“I’m already a grade five alchemist now and I’m completely able to refine a Void Advancement Pill myself… However, the main material to refine a Void Advancement Pill is a problem.” Duan Ling Tian’s thoughts spun and he thought of the Void Advancement Pill.
The Void Advancement Pill was a grade five medicinal pill that was able to assist a Half-step Void Stage martial artist directly break through to the Void Prying Stage.
However, its side effects were extremely great.
It would be impossible for the martial artist that consumed the Void Advancement Pill to break through to the Void Initiation Stage in his entire lifetime.
“A person who’d consumed a Void Advancement Pill was comparably to someone who’d cut off the opportunity to comprehend Concept… Inability to comprehend concept meant that the martial artist was unable to break through to the Void Initiation Stage. To a certain extent, the Void Advancement Pill was a heaven defying medicinal pill that changed one’s fate, so once it’s consumed, one had to pay an extremely great price.” Presently, Duan Ling Tian followed along the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor and completely understood the Void Advancement Pill.
“Eh… The main material of the Void Advancement Pill can be replaced with Monkey Wine?” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian found out about something from the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor. “Earlier, I was still thinking that that main material for the Void Advancement Pill was extremely difficult to find in the Crimson Sky Kingdom. But I never imaged that the Rebirth Martial Emperor has helped me solve this problem.”
Duan Ling Tian withdrew his mind from the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, then he withdrew all the other materials required to refine a Void Advancement Pill.
Besides the main ingredient, the other materials were extremely ordinary and Duan Ling Tian just happened to have them in his possession.
When Duan Ling Tian took out the cauldron, he couldn’t help but be stunned as he’d noticed an extremely important problem…
Refining a grade five medicinal pill required the usage of a grade five cauldron!
Fortunately, the Crimson Sky Kingdom’s Imperial Palace stored materials to refine a grade five cauldron, and when the Emperor found out that Duan Ling Tian had a need, he generously gifted it to Duan Ling Tian.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian refined the first grade five spirit weapon in his entire life, a cauldron!
Relying on the grade fie spirit cauldron and the pile of medicinal materials and Monkey Wine, Duan Ling Tian successfully refined three Void Advancement Pills.
Duan Ling Tian gave one of them to the Emperor.
“Your Majesty, Duan Ling Tian is extremely grateful for obtaining your care for so long. Take this Void Advancement Pill as a little kind feelings of mine.” Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled as he spoke.
The Emperor gazed at the medicinal pill in his hand that contained flowing lights revolving atop it, and he couldn’t come back to his senses for a long time.
Void Advancement Pill?
This is a Void Advancement Pill?
Even though he was the Emperor of the Crimson Sky Kingdom, the Void Advancement Pill was similarly an existence that was out of reach to him.
Now, he held one in his hand.
“Commander Duan, I really don’t know how to thank you.” The Emperor sighed and his gaze was complicated.
Although he’d helped Duan Ling Tian quite a great deal, as far as he was concerned, those things were completely not worth mentioning when compared with a Void Advancement Pill.
After all, a Void Advancement Pill was equal to a Void Prying Stage martial artist!
Within the Imperial Palace, there were many Half-step Void Stage martial artists, yet there wasn’t a single existence at the Void Prying Stage besides him.
Now that he had this Void Advancement Pill, it would also mean that a Void Prying Stage martial artist would be born in the Imperial Kingdom.
Duan Ling Tian’s action of gifting the Void Advancement Pill to him was practically equivalent to gifting a Void Prying Stage martial artist to him.
“Don’t mention it, your Majesty… I came to the Imperial Palace today exactly for the sake of gifting this Void Advancement Pill to your Majesty. Now that I’ve gifted it, I ought to leave.” Duan Ling Tian bid his farewells to the Emperor, then left the Throne Room and left the Imperial Palace.
After leaving the Imperial Palace, Duan Ling Tian went to the Duan Clan Estate.
It was the first time he’d returned to the Duan Clan after returning to the Crimson Sky Kingdom for a month.
The Duan Clan’s Patriarch, Duan Ru Huo, personally came out to greet Duan Ling Tian in when he heard Duan Ling Tian had come.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian met the Duan Clan Grand Elder, Duan Zhen, once again.
The old man was brimming with energy and vitality, and he looked as good as ever.
“Little Fellow, the Patriarch told me about what happened in the Imperial Palace one month ago… I truly never imagined that you have such great ability now. Right, which sect did you join after heading to the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom?” Duan Zhen looked at Duan Ling Tian, and a trace of a sheen of anticipation flashed past his muddy eyes.
“Grade Elder, wanting to know which sect I joined is not your true intention, wanting to know if I’ve obtained a Void Advancement Pill for the clan is the truth, right?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled as he spoke straightforwardly.
This caused Duan Zhen to be extremely embarrassed.
“Grand Elder, I was lucky and succeeded in carrying out the task.” When he saw it was about time, Duan Ling Tian withdrew the one of the two remaining Void Advancement Pills in his hand and passed it to Duan Zhen.
“This is a Void Advancement Pill?” Duan Zhen received the medicinal pill the was contained flowing lights revolving atop it from Duan Ling Tian, then he stared fixedly at it, his eyeballs almost dropping out from his staring, and his face was filled with excitement.
The Duan Clan’s Patriarch, Duan Ru Huo, the fourth master of the Duan Clan, Duan Ru Hong, and all the Duan Clan Elders who stood at the side all stared fixedly at the medicinal pill in Duan Zhen’s hand.
Void Advancement Pill!
This is a Void Advancement Pill?
“What? Grand Elder, are you worried I would deceive you?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled. “Grand Elder, this Void Advancement Pill possesses a purity that far surpasses ordinary Void Advancement Pill. Once it’s consumed by a martial artist that had been stuck at the Half-step Void Stage for many years would have an over 90% chance of instantly breaking through to the Void Prying Stage!”
Duan Zhen’s old and shaky figure shook when he heard Duan Ling Tian, and his face revealed a shocked expression. “Is this true?!”
Although he’d never seed a Void Advancement Pill, he’d heard of it.
But it was the first time he’d heard of such an abnormal Void Advancement Pill.
Duan Ling Tian smiled as he said, “If Grand Elder doesn’t believe me, you’re welcome to consume it and try.”
“Haha… Good!” Under the gazes of all the higher ups of the Duan Clan, Duan Zhen consumed the Void Advancement Pill and closed his eyes…
After a short moment.
It was as if a gust of wind swept out towards the surroundings from Duan Zhen at the center, and it blew on the clothes of Duan Ling Tian and all the Duan Clan higher-ups to cause their clothes to flutter in the wind.
Meanwhile, everyone was able to sense that the aura on Duan Zhen’s body had changed, it had become even more profound, and even more unfathomable.
“Grand Elder… You…” Duan Ru Huo stared blankly at Duan Zhen with an expressions of anticipation and nervousness.
The other Duan Clan elders stared fixedly at Duan Zhen as well.
Only Duan Ling Tian sat nearby with one leg crossed over the other, and he held up a tea cup and drank tea in a composed manner, as if he wasn’t anxious in the slightest.
“Hahahaha…” In next to no time, Duan Zhen’s hearty laughter sounded out, his laughter was like a wave of thunderclaps that shook the Audience Hall to the point some small decorations shook endlessly, and it caused all the Duan Clan higher ups to be dumbstruck.
They could clearly feel that at the same time Duan Zhen was laughing loudly, the imposing aura that swept out of his body was an imposing aura that surpassed the Half-step Void Stage!
Void Prying Stage!
The Grand Elder had directly broken through to the Void Prying Stage…
“Congratulations, Grand Elder!”
“Congratulations, Grand Elder!”
Instantly, all the Duan Clan higher ups congratulated Duan Zhen.
“Little Fellow, thank you.” Duan Zhen paid no attention to Duan Ru Huo and the others, he instead looked at the nearby Duan Ling Tian and slightly bowed.
Duan Ling Tian was originally leisurely drinking tea, and when he saw Duan Zhen turn to look towards him and even bow to thank him, it shocked Duan Ling Tian to the point he hurriedly jumped away. “Grand Elder, why are you doing this? If my mother knows that I received a bow from you, then wouldn’t she lecture me to death? Grand Elder, you can’t do this to me.”
Duan Zhen was first stunned when he saw Duan Ling Tian’s actions, then he couldn’t help but laugh. “Don’t worry, the matter from today won’t enter into your mother’s ears… If anyone dares talk too much, then I’ll pull out their tongue!” As he spoke up to here, Duan Zhen’s gaze flashed past the faces of all the Duan Clan higher-ups.
Even the Patriarch, Duan Ru Huo, wasn’t excluded.
This caused all the Duan Clan higher-ups to be at a loss of whether to laugh or cry.
However, in next to no time, the gazes of these Duan Clan higher-ups descended onto Duan Ling Tian and their gazes flickered with an unusual sheen.
“Don’t look at me all of you, I only have the Void Advancement Pill that Grand Elder consumed in my possession… Even that Void Advancement Pill was something I asked my Master for many years to obtain, and he was truly unable to endure it, thus he requested a grade five alchemist to refine it.” When Duan Ling Tian saw the burning gazes of all the Duan Clan higher-ups, how could Duan Ling Tian not know their thoughts, and he shrugged as he spread his hands out and spoke.
This caused everyone to experience a wave of disappointment.
“Grand Elder, if there’s nothing else, then I’ll take my leave first.” Duan Ling Tian put down the tea cup and smiled to Duan Zhen.
“Little Fellow, the Duan Clan will always remember what you did for the Duan Clan… The Duan Clan let you and your mother down in the incident all those years ago. From today onwards, the Duan Clan will try its best to repay everything the Duan Clan owes the two of you by twice as much!” Duan Zhen said with a serious expression.
Duan Ling Tian disregarded past grievances and had produced a Void Prying Stage martial artist for the Duan Clan, and he was undoubtedly a person who’d rendered great service to the Duan Clan.
