Chapter 514: Jadewave Grass
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
Duan Ling Tian raised his head and looked at the owner of this formidable Spiritual Force.
This was an old man in green robes, his figure and face were both gaunt, yet his eyes were brimming with spirit and flickered with a frightful bright light.
Presently, the old man’s gaze had descended onto Duan Ling Tian and his brows were tightly knit.
“Guild Master.” Meanwhile, the beautiful woman entered behind Duan Ling Tian and said respectfully, “This guest said he wants to see you.”
“See me?” The green robed old man’s white brows frowned, and he had an unhappy expression as he said with a deep voice, “Could it be that it’s your first day in the Weapons Craftsmen Guild? Did I say since long ago to not bring any random person here?”
The beautiful woman smiled bitterly, and she wasn’t surprised by the old man’s reaction.
“Guild Master. This guest is special.” The beautiful woman added.
“Special?” A trace of bewilderment appeared on the old man’s face.
“Guild Master, this guest…” The beautiful woman had only just started speaking when she shut her mouth, because she saw the young man beside her flip his palm and a strand of blue colored flames leaping about on the his palm.
She knew that at this moment, there was no need for her to introduce him any longer.
Whereas the old man’s pupils abruptly constricted at this moment.
His gaunt face slightly twitched.
“Four… Grade four Weapon Flame! You… You’re a grade four Weapons Craftsman?” The old man’s voice trembled slightly, and amongst the trembling, his voice was filled with shock.
“Didn’t you already see it, Guild Master?” Duan Ling Tian had a calm expression when faced with the old man’s question, and with a flip of his palm, he put out the grade four Weapon Flame on his hand.
The old man finally recovered from his shock when he saw the grade four Weapon Flame vanish from his sight, then he took a deep breath before looking at the beautiful woman. “You can leave now… You’re not allowed to mention this Master to anyone!” As he finished speaking, the old man added emphasis to his words.
“Yes, Guild Master.” The beautiful woman didn’t dare hesitate, and she hurriedly replied before turning and leaving.
For a time, only Duan Ling Tian and the old man remained at the scene.
“The Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Weapons Craftsmen Guild’s Leader, Luo Rong, greets this Master.” The old man slightly bowed to Duan Ling Tian.
In the Dao of weapons refinement, the one that has attained the higher grade was the senior.
Although in terms of age, the young man was even able to be his grandson.
But in the Dao of weapons refinement, he was the junior.
“Guild Master Luo, don’t bother.” Duan Ling Tian smiled light as he was able to understand Luo Rong’s feelings.
Even if it was a grade five Weapons Craftsmen, a grade six Weapons Craftsmen still had to address the person as Master.
Not to mention Duan Ling Tian who was one grade higher, a grade four Weapons Craftsman!
Luo Rong stood up and his gaze was extremely complicated.
“May I know your name?” Luo Rong asked respectfully.
“Guild Master Luo, just call me Duan Ling Tian.” Duan Ling Tian spoke slowly.
Duan Ling Tian?!
Luo Rong’s face froze as his figure shook, and even his voice slightly trembled. “You… You… You’re that genius disciple of the Seven Star Sword Sect, Duan Ling Tian?”
“Seven Star Sword Sect?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and laughed in self-ridicule. “The Seven Star Sword Sect doesn’t exist any longer. At most, I’m currently a disciple of a perished sect.”
“You’re really that Duan Ling Tian?” Luo Rong was completely dumbstruck when he obtained Duan Ling Tian’s confirmation.
He never imagined that this grade four Weapons Craftsman was actually the Seven Star Sword Sect genius disciple whose name was spread and gave rise to much discussion in the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom.
The existence that was publically acknowledged to transcend the five great young masters.
“Looks like the rumors weren’t false… Five great young masters? They’re utterly incapable of comparing with him!” Luo Rong gasped in his heart.
As far as he was concerned, the five great young masters were entirely not on the same level as Duan Ling Tian.
Moreover, not to mention Duan Ling Tian’s monstrous natural talent in the Martial Dao, even Duan Ling Tian’s natural talent in the Dao of weapons refinement caused him to feel deeply ashamed.
During his life, he’d studied the Dao of weapons refinement for a few tens of years, but until today, he was still only a grade six Weapons Craftsman.
He suddenly felt that he’d wasted living all these years!
“Could it be that the identity of Duan Ling Tian is worth to be faked?” Duan Ling Tian was speechless when he saw the old man’s dumbstruck expression.
Luo Rong was slightly embarrassed, then he said, “Don’t be angry Master, I was just slightly surprised.”
“Alright, Guild Master Luo… Don’t call me Master in the future, calling me Duan Ling Tian is enough.” Duan Ling Tian waved his hand and said.
“Luo Rong doesn’t deserve it.” Luo Rong had a fearful expression when he heard Duan Ling Tian.
As the Guild Master of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Weapons Craftsmen Guild’s Leader, Luo Rong’s infatuation to the Dao of weapons refinement was something that was difficult for an ordinary person to imagine.
In his eyes, the Dao of weapons refinement was extremely sacred!
A grade four Weapons Craftsmen was worthy of him extending the highest respect.
Duan Ling Tian didn’t say anything further when he saw Luo Rong insisting on sticking to it.
“Master, did you need something from me?” Luo Rong asked.
He believed that it was quite unlikely that a grade four Weapons Craftsman would come look for him if there the person didn’t need something.
“Guild Master Luo, I’ll get straight to the point… I came here today mainly because I wanted to get some materials from Guild Master Luo.” Duan Ling Tian declared his intentions.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian declared a few materials, and they were all core materials used for refining grade four spirit weapons.
These materials were sufficient to advance the grade five spirit swords in his and the little gold mouse’s possession into grade four spirit swords… At that time, the strength of himself and the little gold mouse would acquire a great improvement.
“These materials… Master, you intend to refine a grade four spirit weapon?” Luo Rong’s gaze lit up and even his breathing became hurried.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
“Master…” Luo Rong’s face flushed red as he looked at Duan Ling Tian yet hesitated to speak.
Duan Ling Tian said, “So long as you find these materials that I require, I can allow you to personally observe when I refine the grade four spirit weapon… Not only that, I can even guide you, and allow you to become a grade five Weapons Craftsman within a year!”
Earlier, when Luo Rong’s formidable Spiritual Force flashed over, Duan Ling Tian had sensed a trace of faint aura within Luo Rong’s Spiritual Force.
That trace of aura was precisely related to a Weapons Craftsman.
He clearly sensed from that trace of aura that Luo Rong had already found his way to the door towards the grade five Weapons Craftsman, but he was unable to break through for so long because he didn’t have anyone to guide him.
“Master… Is what you said true?!” Luo Rong’s breathing became hurried, his chest rising and falling like a bellows, and it couldn’t calm down for a long time.
“I’ll be back after a month… I hope that you’ve already prepared it by then.” Duan Ling Tian glanced indifferently at the excited Luo Rong, then turned and left, and only leaving behind the view of his back to Luo Rong.
Luo Rong’s feelings gradually calmed down after Duan Ling Tian’s figure vanished before his eyes, and after a short moment, he left hastily to go prepare.
He only had a month of time, and he knew that this was his opportunity that he couldn’t let slip.
If it was any other person that said they were able to allow him to become a grade five Weapons Craftsman within a year, he wouldn’t believe the person, even if he was beaten to death.
But Duan Ling Tian was different.
Not to mention Duan Ling Tian was a grade four Weapons Craftsman himself, just Duan Ling Tian being able to possess such high attainments in the Dao of weapons refinement at such a young age was sufficient to make him deeply believe Duan Ling Tian’s words.
So during this month, even if he had to exert his utmost strength, he would still gather all those materials for Duan Ling Tian.
Meanwhile, Duan Ling Tian had already left the Weapons Craftsmen Guild.
He naturally didn’t know of Luo Rong’s loss of composure after he left.
“Squeak squeak~” The little gold mouse stood on Duan Ling Tian’s shoulder and cried out twice. “Big Brother Ling Tian, will that geezer be able to gather the materials you want within a month?”
“Don’t worry.” Duan Ling Tian smiled lightly when he heard the little gold mouse’s voice transmission. “As long as he wants to break through to become a grade five Weapons Craftsman, then he will prepare all those materials on time… This is his chance, and he won’t let it slip by!”
The little gold mouse nodded, seeming to not fully understand.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian and the little gold mouse walked into the biggest trade market at the center of the Imperial City.
As the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial City’s biggest trade market, how bustling it was, was beyond Duan Ling Tian’s imagination.
At the trade market, carriages formed dragons that flowed without end.
Duan Ling Tian went to a few medicinal stores and finally bought most of the medicinal materials, and he only lacked a core material.
“Although that Jadewave Grass can’t be considered to be extremely rare, it’s extremely difficult to come by… Perhaps I have to go to a large medicinal store to buy it.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart then he continued to go up and down the trade market.
After half an hour, he found a large medicinal store that he was looking for.
No matter if it was the space it occupied of the level of floors it possessed, the scale of this large medicinal store was a few times larger than a small medicinal store.
“Customer, may I know what you need?” Duan Ling Tian had only just walked into the medicinal store’s door when an attendant came over to greet him.
“Do you have Jadewave Grass here?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
The attendant’s gaze lit up when he heard Duan Ling Tian, and he confirmed a step further. “Sir, you want a Jadewave Grass?”
Jadewave grass was the main medicinal material needed to refine a Void Condensing Pill.
One Jadewave Grass was sufficient to refine one hundred Void Condensing Pills.
Whereas a Void Condensing Pill was something a Void Prying Stage martial artist required to cultivate, and this also caused the price of Jadewave Grass to be on the high side.
Merely a single Jadewave Grass was worth 10 million gold!
“Yes, do you have one in your store?” Duan Ling Tian asked again.
“Customer, your luck is good… There just happens to be one Jadewave Grass remaining in our store!” The attendant revealed a brilliant smile as he brought Duan Ling Tian upstairs.
He was able to obtain quite a large amount of commission from selling a Jadewave Grass.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian followed behind the attendant to arrive at the counter on the east side of the medicinal store’s second floor.
“Manager Wang, this customer needs a Jadewave Grass,” said the attendant to the old man behind the counter.
The old man raised his eyes to glance at Duan Ling Tian when he heard this. “Customer, a Jadewave Grass is 10 million gold. Will you pay on the spot, or do you need us to follow you to withdraw it?”
The old man said this because he saw that Duan Ling Tian was young and felt that Duan Ling Tian ought to not have brought so much money with him.
After all, a young man carrying so much money was extremely dangerous.
“There’s no need, I’ll pay right now.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head, and he raised his hand, intending to withdraw some gold bills.
But right at this moment.
“I want this Jadewave Grass!” A sonorous voice sounded out, and it was filled with overbearingness.
Subsequently, a robust figure appeared before Duan Ling Tian’s eyes the instant Duan Ling Tian frowned and turned around.
