Chapter 19 The Former Protagonist
Along the way, be it spirit beasts or puppet monsters, they seemed to have been instructed not to stop Fang Jinyu, allowing him to reach the peak smoothly.
"Disciple Fang Jinyu pays respects to Grandmaster!"
"You may come in!" The scene at the peak changed when someone spoke. Then, a floating island appeared in the clouds.
The cloud formed a flight of stairs, and Fang Jinyu quickly walked up. When he reached the floating island, he saw the young man he had seen the other day. Like the last time, he had his hands behind his back and faced his back at Fang Jinyu.
"You're really lucky!"
The young man turned around and looked at Fang Jinyu strangely. Then, with a wave of his hand, Fang Jinyu's Discipline Pearl flew out.
Fang Jinyu saw the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster clear all the records on the Discipline Pearl with a wave of his hand. Afterward, he threw it back to Fang Jinyu.
"Thank you very much, Grandmaster!" Fang Jinyu quickly expressed his gratitude.
"I have a Dark-Lightning Spirit Pearl. If you can accumulate 10000 merit points within three years, you can take it from me." Meanwhile, the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster took out the Dark-Lightning Spirit Pearl that flickered with lightning.
"Thank you for your help, Grandmaster," Fang Jinyu replied.
"Since you have such luck, then it's your fortune. However, as for the other treasure, you have to find a way yourself. Although your cultivation base is low, the wind and fire attribute spirit pearls are not rare." As the Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster spoke, he waved his sleeve.
In a daze, Fang Jinyu found himself at the foot of Mount Guiwang.
While lamenting how the inner energy of Nascent Soul stage cultivators was truly unfathomable, Fang Jinyu could not help but ridicule, "Spirit pearls are indeed not rare items to Nascent Soul stage cultivators, and could even be said to be easily obtainable, but I am a Foundation Establishment stage cultivator!"
"It turns out that the stone orb is a sorcery attribute item…." Fang Jinyu was happy while thinking about it. After all, he now had dual spiritual roots, which were wind and lightning attributed. He could refine the stone orb as long as he obtained the Dark-Lightning Spirit Pearl.
At that time, not only would he obtain luck, but he would also be able to use a portion of the power of the magic treasure!
Hence, Fang Jinyu returned to the peak of Mount Lingyao named "Li".
After all, the easiest way to obtain merit points was to offer elixirs to the sect. An elixir for cultivators who ranked 1 in the Foundation Establishment stage, such as the Mini Entry-Level Elixir, could earn 50 merit points. As for the Spirit Summoning Elixir, it could directly earn him 200 merit points.
Although 10000 merit points seemed hard to obtain, Fang Jinyu would only need half a year to gather them!
However, at this moment, with the appearance of the familiar aura of the Core Formation stage cultivators, Fang Jinyu heard someone shout.
"Hey, kid, wait for us!"
Fang Jinyu turned around and saw the two Core Formation stage black spirit pigs he had met before.
Fang Jinyu quickly cupped his fists and said, "Seniors, may I know what I can do for you?"
"It's not a big deal. You smell like spirit herbs, and I smell the fire from you. You must be an alchemist, right?" A black spirit pig came up to Fang Jinyu.
"You're right. However, I can only barely refine Foundation Establishment stage elixirs now."
"That's great. I have a few Foundation Establishment Fruits here. Help me refine ten Foundation Establishment Elixirs." As the black spirit pig spoke, it spat out a flowing light bubble. Moreover, the Foundation Establishment Fruits was inside the bubble.
Fang Jinyu could not help but be stunned. After all, the black spirit pig said there were only a few Foundation Establishment Fruits, but with a casual glance, he could tell that there were 20 to 30 fruits in the bubble.
Fang Jinyu said awkwardly, "I haven't learned how to refine Foundation Establishment Elixirs." The prescription for refining the Foundation Establishment Elixir was on the same tier as the Spirit Summoning Elixir.
"Here you go." The black spirit pig spat out another jade slip.
The two black pigs had come prepared, and Fang Jinyu was at a loss for what to do. He couldn't help but ask, "There are alchemists in the sect. Why you two seniors didn't ask for help from help?"
Another black pig snorted, "You look pleasing to the eye."
Fang Jinyu thought, "It turns out that it's a hidden benefit of cleaning feces for a month…."
Fang Jinyu nodded and cupped his fists. "Since the two seniors think highly of me, I will try my best to refine the Foundation Establishment Elixir. I just don't know where to send it after refining it?"
"The Spirit Beasts Valley will do."
"I got it."
Fang Jinyu suppressed the excitement in his heart and quietly collected the Foundation Establishment Fruits. Then he bid the two black spirit pigs farewell.
After Fang Jinyu left, one of the black spirit pigs suddenly asked, "Other than this kid looking pleasing to the eye, there should be another reason, right? I didn't have time to ask you, but can you tell me now?"
The other black spirit pig answered, "It's nothing much. When I was gossiping with Mount Lingyao's stupid Foundation Establishment stage bird, I heard that this kid has the potential to become a Holy Alchemist. It turns out that I've kept the Foundation Establishment Fruits for more than a hundred years. If this kid succeeds in becoming a Holy Alchemist, we can improve our cultivation base by asking him to refine elixirs for us." The relationship between spirit beasts was usually good as long as they weren't each other's prey.
At the peak of Mount Lingyao named "Li"...
"There are 35 Foundation Establishment Fruits in total." After Fang Jinyu counted, he couldn't help but be excited.
The Foundation Establishment Elixir could be considered a strategic resource for the sects. Therefore, the Foundation Establishment Fruits were basically monopolized by the various sects. However, the sects knew that it wasn't good to do it. Hence, they would let one-tenth of their Foundation Establishment Fruits circulate in the market.
It was also the only way for rogue cultivators to obtain Foundation Establishment Fruits.
Of course, wild Foundation Establishment Fruits would occasionally appear, but the chances were too small. It was because the Foundation Establishment Fruit had high requirements for spiritual energy in its growing area.
"One Foundation Establishment Fruit can make a furnace of Foundation Establishment Elixirs."
"Moreover, one Foundation Establishment Elixir can be exchanged for 500 merit points!"
Fang Jinyu immediately began to study the Foundation Establishment Elixir's prescription. Soon, a familiar text box appeared in front of him.
[Today is the day of inexplicably offending the former protagonist.]
[Refining the future opportunity of the former protagonist +1]
Although it was an opportunity, it was no longer an arrow but a countdown.
"A four-day countdown?" Fang Jinyu was stunned because the opportunity seemed to be easily obtained. Then, Fang Jinyu felt a chill go down his spine.
He remembered that Su Yier's opportunities seemed to be related to men!
"Please don't tell me…."
"Forget it. Nothing will happen if I don't go out!"
It was the only opportunity Fang Jinyu refused to obtain.
The prescription for the Foundation Establishment Elixir was way more difficult than the Mini Entry-Level Elixir. Fang Jinyu had looked at it for two days, mainly because he wanted to wait for the gains in "Understanding the Foundation Establishment Elixir" before he dared to start refining.
The key point in refining the Foundation Establishment Elixir was the Foundation Establishment Fruit. As for the other supplementary ingredients, they were all ordinary spirit herbs. He only needed ten-year spirit herbs.
Fang Jinyu had to pay for the supplementary ingredients himself.
Fang Jinyu didn't burn the furnace on his first try. Instead, he successfully refined the elixirs.
Fang Jinyu did a quick count. He had obtained seven elixirs on his first try.
However, Fang Jinyu failed to refine the elixirs on his second try, which was within his expectations. He continued to refine the elixirs, but he failed on his third and fourth try, which made him decide to rest for a while.
Afterward, Fang Jinyu looked at the Foundation Establishment Elixirs in his hand and suddenly thought of someone. Thus, he placed three pills in a small jade bottle, got up, and flew toward Mount Goddess on his spirit tool.
