Chapter 643: Zhang Shou Yong’s Shock
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“Brother Ling Tian!” Duan Ling Tian had just entered the courtyard when he heard an extremely excited voice sound out from within.
The owner of the voice seemed as if he’d been waiting for Duan Ling Tian for a long time.
This voice wasn’t unfamiliar to Duan Ling Tian.
“Big Brother Zhang.” Duan Ling Tian emitted a light smile when he saw Zhang Shou Yong who walked out hastily to appear before his eyes.
“Brother Ling Tian, please come in.” Zhang Shou Yong hurriedly invited Duan Ling Tian into the courtyard, and at the same time, he instructed the nearby servant girl. “No one is to enter without my permission!”
“Yes.” Although the servant girl didn’t know what had happened that caused the Young Master to lose his composure like this, she still obeyed respectfully.
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian was lead into a spacious room by Zhang Shou Yong.
Zhang Shou Yong’s burning gaze stared at Duan Ling Tian as he rubbed his palms together and had an expression of anticipation, and he completely lost his steady appearance from before.
“Brother Ling Tian, that spirit weapon wine gourd of mine…” Zhang Shou Yong took a deep breath, and he looked at Duan Ling Tian with a hopeful gaze.
“Alas.” Duan Ling Tian sighed intentionally.
“Hmm?” Zhang Shou Yong’s face went slightly pale when he saw Duan Ling Tian like this.
Could it be that the grade three Weapons Craftsman was unwilling to help me upgrade my spirit weapon wine gourd to the ranks of a grade three spirit weapon?
For a time, he felt a slight sense of loss in his heart.
“Brother Ling Tian, it’s fine if that senior was unwilling to help… In any case, besides this spirit weapon wine gourd, I still have another grade four spirit weapon.” After Zhang Shou Yong returned to his senses, he instead started consoling Duan Ling Tian.
“Big Brother Zhang, when did I say that the senior wasn’t willing to help?” Duan Ling Tian couldn’t help but laugh when he saw Zhang Shou Yong like this.
“You…” Zhang Shou Yong was stunned before laughing bitterly.
Only now did he realize that Duan Ling Tian had intentionally sighed earlier.
“Big Brother Zhang, here.” With a raise of his hand, a wine gourd appeared out of thin air in his hands, and Duan Ling Tian passed it over to Zhang Shou Yong.
“This is… my wine gourd?” Zhang Shou Yong who received the wine gourd couldn’t help but be stunned as he looked at the spirit weapon wine gourd in his hand that was even more delicate and emitted a faint sheen.
It was utterly impossible to discern that the current wine gourd was the same wine gourd from before.
“If it isn’t your wine gourd, then could it be mine?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and laughed.
Zhang Shou Yong’s face flushed slightly red when he heard this.
At the same time, flames that were formed from a ball of Origin Energy abruptly blazed into existence on his hand, and it fused into the wine gourd in his hand.
Instantly, the sheen on the surroundings of the wine gourd became exceedingly deep.
The energy of heaven and earth roiled in the sky above Zhang Shou Yong, and in the end, it condensed into numerous ancient horned dragon silhouettes…
First 11 ancient horned dragon silhouettes appeared, and it represented Zhang Shou Yong’s current cultivation at the eighth level of the Void Initiation Stage.
Subsequently, at the side of the 11 ancient horned dragon silhouettes, another seven ancient horned dragon silhouettes and 7,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes appeared…
The 7,000 ancient mammoth silhouettes seemed as if they were paying respects to the supreme emperor, and they surrounded the 18 ancient horned dragon silhouettes in the center like twinkling stars surrounding the bright moon.
“An amplification of the strength of seven ancient horned dragons and 7,000 ancient mammoths…” As he gazed at the sky above him, Zhang Shou Yong’s expression slightly froze for a while.
“In other words, my spirit weapon wine gourd is able to provide an amplification of an entire 70%? Now, even if it’s placed in a pile of grade three spirit weapons, it’s considered to be top grade amongst the top grade?” Zhang Shou Yong’s heart couldn’t help but start trembling intensely as the scene before his eyes had truly exceeded his expectations, and it caused him to be exceedingly shocked!
Originally, as far as he was concerned, so long as his wine gourd was upgraded to the ranks of a grade three spirit weapon, then even if it provided an amplification of 66% or 67%, he would still feel satisfied.
But now, it had completely exceeded his expectations.
An entire 70%!
A grade three spirit weapon that provided an amplification of 70%…
Even though he wasn’t a Weapons Craftsman and wasn’t familiar with the Dao of Weapons Refinement, even if he didn’t know about it, he’d heard about it.
He was sure that not to mention the Darkhan Dynasty and the various Dynasties, even the Foreign Lands might not possess a grade three spirit weapon that provided a 70% amplification.
Duan Ling Tian stood at the side with a calm expression.
The changes in Zhang Shou Yong’s expression had been noticed by him since the beginning, and he wasn’t surprised by Zhang Shou Yong’s shock.
So long as it was an ordinary person, the person would surely be shocked after finding out about the wine gourd’s amplification ability.
“The grade three spirit weapon refined by me is equivalent to it being refined by the Rebirth Martial Emperor himself. In the entire Cloud Continent, I’m afraid no Weapons Craftsman is able to refine a grade three spirit weapon that provides an amplification of 70%.” Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
Perhaps there were many grade two and even grade one Weapons Craftsmen in Cloud Continent.
However, perhaps these Weapons Craftsmen were able to easily refine grade two and grade one spirit weapons that surpassed a grade three spirit weapon that provided an amplification of 70%…
But if there were made to refine a grade three spirit weapon, it was practically impossible for them to refine a grade three spirit weapon that provided a 70% amplification.
That was already unrelated to the grade of a Weapons Craftsman, and it was instead related to the comprehension and experience of the Weapons Craftsman in the Dao of Weapons Refinement.
“I haven’t headed to the Foreign Lands In this age, I wonder if a figure that can compare with the Rebirth Martial Emperor in the Dao of Weapons Refinement has appeared on Cloud Continent…”
“But, I can be sure of one thing… During the second lifetime of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, there was no Weapons Craftsman on Cloud Continent that could compare to him!” This was something that Duan Ling Tian was extremely sure of from the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
Duan Ling Tian gradually restrained his thoughts.
On the other side, Zhang Shou Yong had finally recovered from his shock, he fondly stroked the wine gourd in his hand, and his gaze was filled with a burning sheen.
“Big Brother Zhang, that senior said that he only helped you increase the amplification ability of this wine gourd, but the volume within the wine gourd wasn’t increased.” Duan Ling Tian looked at Zhang Shou Yong and smiled. “So, the wine gourd in your hand can only hold the amount of wine that it could hold previously.”
Zhang Shou Yong returned to his senses and shook his head. “That’s not a problem… In any case, the original volume was already sufficient for me.”
As he finished speaking, Zhang Shou Yong completely sobered up, and he took a deep breath as he looked sincerely at Duan Ling Tian. “Brother Ling Tian, thank you.”
Zhang Shou Yong expressed his gratitude with extreme sincerity.
“Big Brother Zhang, you’re treating me like a stranger… Both of us becoming acquainted with each other is fate by itself. Not to mention, if it wasn’t for you lending a hand at the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Ancient City of Everlast all those years ago, I would probably have died at the hands of that withered old man since long ago.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head and smiled as he spoke slowly.
When he recalled the dangerous scene at that day in the Ancient City of Everlast’s Eternal Jade Restaurant, he still felt a slight lingering fear in his heart even until today.
At that day, not only had the cultivation of Xiong Quan who always followed by his side been crippled, even the lives of himself and Li Fei were in imminent danger.
At the critical moment, it was precisely Zhang Shou Yong that lent a hand and killed that withered old man.
This life saving favor was something that Duan Ling Tian was forever unable to forget.
“As the saying goes, karma goes in a circle, and kindness is rewarded in kindness… In the past, I didn’t quite believe these words, but I believe it now.” After receiving Duan Ling Tian’s reminder, Zhang Shou Yong couldn’t help but recall the scene from that day and he sighed with emotion.
“Brother Ling Tian.” In next to no time, Zhang Shou Yong’s face went serious as he said word by word. “In the future, if you have anything you need help with, then I, Zhang Shou Yong, am willing to lay down my life!”
In the entire Darkhan Dynasty, there was only a single grade three spirit weapon that was known of to the public.
Moreover, it was controlled in the hands of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Imperial Family.
Now, Duan Ling Tian had given him a grade three spirit weapon, and to him, it was an extremely great favor that he was unable to return.
“Big Brother Zhang, you’re being too serious… But there really is something that I have to trouble you with.” Duan Ling Tian smiled.
“Please go ahead.” Zhang Shou Yong listened intently.
“Big Brother Zhang, if it’s possible, I hope you can use your relationships to help me search for an extremely precious medicinal material… It’s the medicinal material on this painting, and it’s called the Ageless Root.” With a raise of his hand, a painting had appeared in Duan Ling Tian’s hand.
On the painting, a root shaped medicinal material was presented there, and when looked at carefully, it was like the sharp claws of the divine beast Phoenix of legend.
“Ageless Root?” Zhang Shou Yong’s brows raised and he received the painting from Duan Ling Tian with a serious expression. “Don’t worry Brother Ling Tian, I’ll try my best to find this type of medicinal material for you!”
“Thank you, Big Brother Zhang.” Duan Ling Tian hurriedly thanked him before saying, “Besides that, if Big Brother Zhang has a way to obtain spirit fruits used by Void Initiation Stage martial artist that are of no use to you, I hope that you can transfer it over to me… I’ll surely thank you generously!” As he finished speaking, Duan Ling Tian was slightly hesitant.
After all, Zhang Shou Yong was a Void Initiation Stage martial artist as well, and he was similarly fighting on the path to head to the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties.
If it was a spirit fruit that he hadn’t consumed in the past, then it was surely impossible for him to give it to another.
Everyone had their own selfishness.
This was something that Duan Ling Tian could understand.
“Brother Ling Tian, if you speak like this then you’re not taking me to be your friend… You’ve asked someone to assist me in upgrading my wine gourd to the ranks of a grade three spirit weapon and have given me a great kindness. If I’m really able to obtain a spirit fruit used by a Void Initiation Stage martial artist, then I’ll surely present it to you and will absolutely not even frown for a moment.” Zhang Shou Yong spoke sincerely.
“Thank you, Big Brother Zhang.” Duan Ling Tian thanked, and then he said, “Big Brother Zhang, since it’s like this, then I’ll take my leave first.”
“Brother Ling Tian, why don’t you stay here until the Dynasty Martial Competition?” Zhang Shou Yong suggested.
“There’s no need.” Duan Ling Tian refused Zhang Shou Yong’s good intentions. “I still have things to take care off, and it’s more convenient if I return.”
He still remembered that he’d made a trip to the Milky Way City’s Treasure Gathering Pavilion the other day and had once told Pavilion Master Xiang Ying to look for him at the Darkstone Empire’s estate in the Capital of the Darkhan Dynasty when Xiang Ying had news about the spirit fruits used by Void Initiation Stage martial artists or the Ageless Root.
If Xiang Ying really had any news and came to look for him, yet he wasn’t there, then he would really be extremely regretful.
“Okay.” Zhang Shou Yong nodded and didn’t continue persisting.
“I’ll send you out.” Subsequently, Zhang Shou Yong intended to send Duan Ling Tian out of the Zhang Clan Estate.
The two of them had only just walked side by side out of the courtyard when they saw a figure rush over hastily, and it was exactly Wang Qiong.
