Chapter 18 You Have To Obey Even If You Don’t
Speaking of which, Fang Jinyu learned how to bind a contract with a magic treasure from Su Yier.
According to the book, which shortly appeared, Su Yier's inner energy growth was slow due to her lack of talent during the beginning stage of cultivation. Hence, she started to study Miscellaneous Studies, such as the four arts, and she found some similarities between the common spells related to the four arts.
The similarity was the method of communicating with magic treasures and establishing contracts!
When Fang Jinyu knew the method, he couldn't help but sigh the luck of the "lucky star." Su Yier was in such good luck that it made people helpless.
Fang Jinyu copied Su Yier's method to form a contract with the magic treasure.
After all, the spells of the four arts didn't have any combat power and were only used to mold one's personality. Therefore, almost all cultivators in the Tianling Sect knew how to use them.
It was because cultivators could make their originally clumsy painting, calligraphy, zither, or chess skills temporarily reach the level of an expert with just a little magical power. It could greatly satisfy one's soul shortly, and it was beneficial to relieve the depression caused by the boring cultivation.
And now, Fang Jinyu had successfully obtained a magic treasure he had longed for. Naturally, he couldn't hide his joy.
Then, he started to search for spirit items in the vicinity.
He remembered that there must be many spirit items around the place that nurtured magic treasures. Once the magic treasure was formed, there wouldn't be high-tier spirit items around it because the magic treasure had taken away the spiritual opportunity.
However, it wasn't a problem for Fang Jinyu.
After all, Fang Jinyu was only a cultivator who ranked 2 in the Foundation Establishment stage so he could use any low-tier spirit items. Many Foundation Establishment stage cultivators consumed elixirs made of ten-year spirit herbs.
In a land of immortal cultivation like the Nine Desolations, the spirit herbs cultivators needed to concoct elixirs were not as outrageous as using thousand-year spirit herbs since the spirit herbs weren't having a longevity competition with cultivators.
For example, the Qi Condensation stage elixirs' ingredients were spirit herbs cultivated for only a few years. The main ingredients were usually cultivated for 20 to 30 years.
It was related to the rich spiritual energy of heaven and earth.
Although the Nine Desolations didn't have spiritual veins, it had thin spiritual energy, allowing the Qi Condensation stage to improve their magic power slowly.
Fang Jinyu had specially prepared five spirit-tier Hundred-Treasure Boxes for the trip to the Lingdu Secret Realm. The Hundred-Treasure Boxes had different sizes and capacities.
The reason why he prepared so many Hundred-Treasure Boxes was that there were different types of spirit items.
The green Hundred-Treasure Box could reduce the loss of medicinal properties of spirit herbs. The purple Hundred-Treasure Box could reduce the weight of heavy items stored inside, such as spirit stones would be extremely light after being stored inside. Even if 50000 spirit stones were stuffed into the purple Hundred-Treasure Box, it would still be as light as a feather.
Apart from that, the white Hundred-Treasure Box was used to store some sorcery attribute spirit items.
After Fang Jinyu's search, the Hundred-Treasure Boxes had filled up quite a bit. One-tenth of the white Hundred-Treasure Box's capacity had been occupied.
"It seems like the stone orb is one of the sorcery attribute magic treasures."
Fang Jinyu felt regret as wind and thunder-attribute magic treasure suited him more. However, magic treasures were nurtured by the heavens and earth, so there was nothing for him to be picky about. Many Core Formation stage cultivators didn't even have a magic treasure and could only use supreme-tier spirit tools.
Then, he used his spirit tool and rose into the air again.
However, Fang Jinyu looked at the mountain wall in front of him strangely as soon as he flew. The mountain wall was like Mount Buzhou in ancient times. It was high into the sky as if connected to heaven and earth. Even so, the reason Fang Jinyu felt strange wasn't because of the mountain wall's magnificence.
"Is this the location of one of the two magic treasures Su Yier will obtain? The magic treasure called the Green Phoenix Scissors? Is it so close to the location of the stone orb?"
Fang Jinyu was taken aback but quickly retracted his magical power and descended.
After Fang Jinyu landed, he immediately started searching.
Soon, Fang Jinyu found a strange tree. After he circled it three times to the left and then three times to the right, a mysterious door opened again. Fang Jinyu was overjoyed and quickly stepped in.
He seemed to be somewhere with beautiful mountains and crystal waters this time. Two phoenixes were dancing in the air, appearing green and red.
When Fang Jinyu was about to step forward, he felt an invisible resistance.
He raised his head and saw the two phoenixes stop flying in the air and stare at him coldly.
"Do they disavow me?"
"The magic treasure is spiritual?"
Fang Jinyu pondered for a moment before he understood the situation. He then stretched out his hand and cast a spell. He chanted another incantation, and his inner energy was instantly reduced by half. Afterward, even though the two phoenixes disavowed Fang Jinyu, they could only obediently join together, turn into a pair of scissors, and fall into his hands.
Fang Jinyu clasped his hands together, and the Green Phoenix Scissors disappeared. It was hidden within Fang Jinyu's body, just like the stone orb.
"Su Yier has discovered a good method."
Fang Jinyu couldn't help but praise. No matter how the magic treasure disavowed him, it had to obey him!
Afterward, he prepared to search the nearby spirit items as he had done before. However, an invisible wave of light appeared at that moment. In Fang Jinyu's daze, he had already left the Lingdu Secret Realm.
Looking around at the familiar scene, Fang Jinyu could not help but be stunned. He thought, "Why am I out here?"
Suddenly, Fang Jinyu thought of Su Yier. The book claimed she left the Lingdu Secret Realm after obtaining two magic treasures.
"Could it be a hidden mechanism of the Lingdu Secret Realm, where one has to be sent out after obtaining two magic treasures?"
Meanwhile, a white bird flew over.
When it arrived in front of him, it suddenly spoke in human language, "You may come to Mount Guiwang."
Fang Jinyu was shocked because the voice of the white bird belonged to the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster.
Fang Jinyu didn't dare to hesitate. He immediately took out his spirit tool and flew into the air.
Mount Guiwang was where the Tianling Sect's Nascent Soul stage Grandmasters were cultivated. However, there weren't many inner disciples at the peak. There were only puppet monsters in charge of operating the barriers around the peak, and occasionally, they would also welcome guests.
Even though nobody was at Mount Guiwang, it wasn't a deserted place. There were all sorts of spirit beasts, and Fang Jinyu even saw two familiar black spirit pigs.
When Fang Jinyu looked over, the two black spirit pigs also saw him and took the initiative to approach him. One spoke in human language, "It's you, kiddo. Not bad! I haven't seen you for a while, and you've already broken through the Foundation Establishment stage."
The king of black spirit pigs was a Core Formation stage cultivator, but there were two other Core Formation stage black spirit pigs under its command.
Fang Jinyu quickly cupped his fists. Although the two black spirit pigs were mutants, they were genuine Core Formation stage cultivators on equal footing with the great Core Formation stage cultivator.
"Alright, alright, you can go meet the Grandmaster now! We won't bother you anymore!" The two black spirit pigs nodded in acknowledgment and left.
