Chapter 6 Refining Luck
Chapter 6 Refining Luck
Two days later, Fang Jinyu found out about Chen Baxing's punishment while looking at the basics of alchemy at Mount Lingyao.
Chen Baxing's cultivation base would be crippled, and he would be expelled from Tianling Sect.
As described in the sect rules, Lu Shaojun was also expelled after losing his cultivation base. Even his father, a Foundation Establishment stage alchemist, couldn't protect him in such a matter.
The Tianling Sect had its place that was proficient in alchemy. It even had Mount Lingyao, a peak with eight hidden spiritual veins, which the names of the eight trigrams named its veins.
Although Lu Shaojun's father was a famous alchemist and was different from ordinary alchemists, how could the Tianling Sect tolerate him interfering with something he shouldn't?
All of a sudden, all the ranked 9 in the Qi Condensation stage disciples clearly understood the rules of the Tianling Sect.
A ranked 9 in the Qi Condensation stage disciple with triple-element spiritual roots and a high chance of breaking through the Foundation Establishment stage had lost his cultivation base easily. They would not even dare to think of the consequences if he was an ordinary cultivator!
Many Foundation Establishment stage cultivators were shocked.
However, Fang Jinyu didn't think so. Reminiscing about the Grandmaster's rage, it seemed to be a result of breaking the rules made by the Grandmaster.
[Today is the day of gaining from snitching.]
[Luck obtained through refinement +1]
It was time for Fang Jinyu to collect his harvest of the day.
Fang Jinyu could not help but be shocked.
Then, he immediately felt as if he was freed from some shackles. He felt an indescribable sense of freedom.
However, Fang Jinyu knew that it was because his luck had increased.
If the book were still available, Fang Jinyu would know his character was no longer a cannon fodder that died in the first chapter. Instead, he would be like Xin Qianqian, a cannon fodder living over two or three chapters.
"Why does it sound like nonsense?"
Fang Jinyu cursed in his heart, but at the same time, his eyes lit up.
Because in this place, other than the luck brought by magic treasures and other magical items, one's personal luck could not be plundered by others!
The only thing that could be taken away was the additional luck.
For example, he could obtain the magic treasure's luck when he snatched other people's magic treasure and refined it.
However, Fang Jinyu now realized that he had a way to increase his own luck!
It was also a unique personal method.
"It's said that one can improve his cultivation talent after having strong luck...." Fang Jinyu immediately thought of the Tianling spiritual root. If he had the Tianling spiritual root, not only would he have a chance of breaking through the Core Formation stage, but he would also have a high chance of breaking his core and forming a nascent soul.
He now had triple-elemental spiritual roots, which meant he could control three types of magical power. The triple-elemental spiritual roots would be advantageous to him in fighting with others, but they would also affect his progress in cultivation.
Especially during the breaking of the core and forming the nascent soul, the nascent soul was the foundation for switching between physical and virtual forms. His triple-elemental spiritual roots would affect his nascent soul.
Moreover, when one possessed more magical power attributes, it would be riskier for him to form a low-tier golden core.
The golden core was divided into nine grades.
The grade nine golden core was the lowest, while grade one was the highest.
As for the core formation of Tianling's spiritual root, the worst situation was forming a grade three golden core.
The chances of breaking into the nascent soul of a cultivator with a grade three golden core, a cultivator with a grade two golden core, and a cultivator with a grade one golden core were 10%, 20%, and 50%, respectively.
For those with a golden core lower than grade three, reaching rank 3 in the Core Formation stage was already an outstanding achievement, let alone creating a newborn soul.
Fang Jinyu's heart began to race as these thoughts ran through his mind.
He couldn't snatch away most of the opportunities that the female lead, Su Yier, had.
It was all related to the female lead's admirers.
Therefore, although Fang Jinyu had tried his best to memorize the opportunities he could use from the book, he couldn't find much.
Fang Jinyu thought, "After all, I can't dress up as a woman to seduce the male characters, right?"
"Furthermore, look at my height and manly appearance! I will never be able to attract male characters, regardless of how skilled I am at camouflaging myself!"
"There are indeed more profound transformation techniques that can achieve such a goal. But, is that something a rank 1 in Foundation Establishment stage cultivator like me can do?"
"However, there are plenty of characters similar to Chen Baxing in novels…"
Among Su Yier's admirers, some of them had a chance to flirt with her. However, most of them didn't even get to know her.
"Anyway, how can I make this system-like thing in my body refine my luck?"
Although he saved himself with the Chen Baxing incident, it was very particular about probability.
Fang Jinyu's interest waned at the thought.
"Moreover, it's hard to seduce the female lead's admirers… They are all powerful in their own ways. For example, the loyal Core Formation stage admirer, or the cool Lord of the Immortal City…"
"I can save myself with the Chen Baxing incident by chance and coincidence. It relied on my previous parents' sacrifice for the sect."
"But it might not be because of Chen Baxing. After all, there is also Lu Shaojun. Forget it! I'll think about it next time!"
Fang Jinyu retracted his thoughts and continued studying alchemy basics.
He had initially planned to use the chance of entering the Lingdu Secret Realm to exchange for the Foundation Establishment stage chapter of the storm raging technique, but unfortunately, his plan failed.
Although the Tianling Sect would provide Foundation Establishment stage cultivation techniques to its disciples, they were all low-tier cultivation techniques. If Fang Jinyu wanted to obtain a high-tier cultivation technique, other than acknowledging a Core Formation stage cultivator as his master, he could only accumulate merit points.
Fortunately, the Tianling Sect wasn't inhuman, or perhaps it was because the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster took the initiative to meet Fang Jinyu, the descendant of his old friend. Hence, the sect leader gave him the Qi circulation guide for the storm raging technique for ranked 1 Foundation Establishment stage cultivators.
However, Fang Jinyu wasn't satisfied.
Thus, he wanted to learn alchemy. Alchemy was the most common talent among cultivators and the simplest way to earn merit points!
Refining a low-tier elixir for Qi Condensation stage cultivators would earn him many merit points.
The difficulty of becoming an alchemist increased the alchemist's earnings.
Fang Jinyu had been studying the basics of alchemy for two days, but he was only familiar with the process of refining elixirs and some of their medicinal properties. However, he was still confused about the methods of refining a furnace of elixirs.
Fortunately, Fang Jinyu could cheat with the system, so he wasn't in a hurry. Furthermore, he had 200 years of lifespan after he broke through the Foundation Establishment stage, which gave him plenty of time.
A Qi Condensation stage cultivator would die at one hundred years old, but Fang Jinyu was in his prime when he was one hundred years old!
Meanwhile, someone walked over quickly and stood a dozen steps away. He saluted and said, "Martial Uncle Fang, a senior brother is here to see you. He calls himself Lu Yifang."
His voice was as pure as the sound of an oriole bird. The voice owner was Du Maner, a disciple of a peak of Mount Lingyao named "Li", where Fang Jinyu was currently located.
The disciples from a peak of Mount Lingyao named "Li" were all handsome men and beautiful women. Although their cultivation talent was average, they would be perfect alchemy helpers for Foundation Establishment stage cultivators after they spent more than ten years of hard work studying alchemy.
After hearing Du Maner's words, Fang Jinyu couldn't help but look surprised and asked, "Lu Yifang?"
"This fellow still dares to come and find me?"
Fang Jinyu thought for a moment and asked Lu Yifang to come over.
Soon, Lu Yifang appeared. When he saw Fang Jinyu, he bowed deeply and paid his respects, saying, "Thank you for your magnanimity, Martial Uncle Fang!"
