Chapter 22 The Little Girl Is Finally Useful
Fang Jinyu agreed.
After all, since he would obtain so many resources, there was no reason for him to reject it.
Moreover, even though the Tianling Sect's Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster didn't mention what it was about, Fang Jinyu did recall some of his memories with his reminder.
Naturally, he had read about it from the book that once appeared shortly.
It seemed that some time ago, for some unknown reason, the spiritual energy in the spiritual veins of Nine Desolations' land had become unstable. Although the total amount of the spiritual energy didn't change much, the changes caused the Foundation Establishment Fruits, which were supposed to ripe during the year, to either be delayed by three years or have problems that prevented them from being used for alchemy.
It caused the price of the Foundation Establishment Fruits that year skyrocketed by three times. The Foundation Establishment Elixir made from Foundation Establishment Fruits could be sold for a premium of 100000 spirit stones each!
It was simply the most outrageous price increment in the immortal world. If it weren't for the fact that the other prices didn't increase much, it would have caused inflation in the immortal world.
However, some people had made great profits from the skyrocketing bid for the Foundation Establishment Elixir. They had earned pots of money!
Fang Jinyu remembered that one of the aristocratic families had the surname Qin.
"It seems to be the family of that bossy male character…."
At first, Fang Jinyu had not thought about it because he had been looking for opportunities when he was reading the book. As such, he only had a rough impression of the bootlickers that the female lead, Su Yier, had.
After connecting the dots, Fang Jinyu finally understood the situation.
After all, "Senior Brother Qin" had taken Su Yier's virginity. Logically speaking, Su Yier's neurotic master should at least cripple "Senior Brother Qin"!
However, in the end, Su Yier's master tolerated his existence. It was obvious that after the problem with the Foundation Establishment Fruits occurred this time, the Qin family had given many Foundation Establishment Fruits or Foundation Establishment Elixirs to Tianling Sect.
After all, although Su Yier's neurotic master was a sword cultivator, he seemed to bully the weak and fear the strong.
For example, he had been eyeing Fang Jinyu's spot to enter the Lingdu Secret Realm because Fang Jinyu had no background in the sect and was just an ordinary disciple.
"So, Su Yier has taken the chance to enter the Lingdu Secret Realm from who?" Only then did Fang Jinyu remember the matter.
Fang Jinyu had successfully entered the Lingdu Secret Realm, and the spot couldn't be created out of thin air.
It could only belong to an unlucky fellow.
However, it had nothing to do with Fang Jinyu. He was a mere cultivator who ranked 2 in the Foundation Establishment stage. In fact, from the perspective of cultivation, he had only just stepped into the starting point.
After that, Fang Jinyu began to prepare to refine his magic treasure.
The Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster of the Tianling Sect was generous. Perhaps it was because the matter of the Foundation Establishment Elixirs had upset him. He wanted to resolve it as soon as possible, so he gave Fang Jinyu the reward he had promised beforehand.
They were two spirit pearls. One was wind-attributed, while the other was fire-attributed.
Fang Jinyu also got a box of 12 Authentic Core Fruits, which was the fundamental ingredient for refining the Core Spirit Elixir.
Moreover, he got a copy of insight which was the most precious item.
Before this, Fang Jinyu only knew that after the magic treasure was refined, he could obtain the luck of the magic treasure that was nurtured by the heavens and earth. If one's spiritual root's attribute was compatible with the refined magic treasure, one could use the magic treasure's power while he broke through the Foundation Establishment stage!
After Fang Jinyu had read through the insights, he realized that cultivators couldn't simply use the power of the refined magic treasure. The inner energy of a Foundation Establishment stage cultivator wasn't enough to support the release of the power of the refined magic treasure. Thus, when the power of a magic treasure was used, it would use the cultivator's life span as a power source.
It was because all magic treasures contained heavens and earth magic domains.
The completeness and power of heavens and earth magic domains were the keys to determining the grade of the magic treasure.
However, not being able to use it didn't mean Fang Jinyu couldn't increase his strength with it.
Fang Jinyu could gain some understanding of the magic treasure. He only needed to understand a little of it and combine it with what he had learned to form his great divine powers.
The great divine powers were not only compatible with him but were also extremely powerful. Moreover, only a small amount of inner energy would be consumed while using it. Therefore, one only needed to master the great divine powers to possess the Foundation Establishment stage's top combat strength.
Fang Jinyu started his closed-door cultivation again.
Naturally, he was still doing his closed-door cultivation at Mount Xiaohe. No other Foundation Establishment stage cultivators were at the peak except for him. He could be considered half a peak leader of Mount Xiaohe now. Naturally, no one would come and disturb him.
After all, the Qi Condensation stage disciples cultivating on Mount Xiaohe knew that Fang Jinyu had broken through the Foundation Establishment stage half a year ago with an extremely encouraging method!
However, the little girl wasn't happy with the situation. She rested her chin on her hand and looked at the stone gate where Fang Jinyu was doing his closed-door cultivation. No one knew what she was thinking.
She was unhappy because she dared not wander around without Fang Jinyu.
Using Fang Jinyu's reputation, she had a great time at the peak of Mount Lingyao named "Li" and Mount Xiaohe. Even if her cultivation base was weak, the other disciples of the Tianling Sect still treated her as their future junior sister.
However, Fang Jinyu's closed-door cultivation didn't last long this time. Two days later, he ended his closed-door cultivation.
"Why are you so fast this time?" The little girl rushed over to Fang Jinyu and noticed that he was frowning in displeasure. Hence, she asked, "Are you in trouble?"
"It can be considered so." Fang Jinyu sighed in his heart.
The refining of the stone orb went very smoothly. With the help of the Dark-Lightning Spirit Pearl and the gains in refining the magic treasure, the process could be said to be very smooth and natural.
After refining the stone orb, although Fang Jinyu didn't improve his strength, he increased his luck by at least ten times after checking it with the fortune-telling technique!
While Fang Jinyu was lamenting how much luck the magic treasure was carrying, he couldn't help but wonder how weak his luck was.
After all, Fang Jinyu had previously gained one point in luck refining.
After his luck increased, Fang Jinyu experienced the benefits of having such strong luck for the first time. He had gained more insight into his previous cultivation and even had a slight idea of refining the Core Spirit Elixir after going through its prescription several times.
"What kind of trouble?" The little girl asked subconsciously. She was just curious.
Fang Jinyu was unwilling to tell her about it. However, his fortune-telling technique reacted. After a moment of hesitation, he asked, "Do you know why there are times when we can't refine magic treasures?"
Refining the stone orb magic treasure was smooth, but refining the Green Phoenix Scissors was extremely difficult!
Fang Jinyu couldn't even refine it!
"It's most likely that the magic treasure has been disturbed by someone without letting you know…." The little girl answered subconsciously, but she was stunned when she said it.
She blinked her large, clear eyes as if she felt strange or confused. Afterward, she furrowed her brows and pondered for a while. Ultimately, she found that she couldn't figure it out. Hence, she looked at Fang Jinyu while confused and asked, "What's a magic weapon?"
She had no idea why she blurted it out just now.
