90 Hard Work Brings Rewards
Although there were traces of the devil’s realm, the cultivators of the Nine Desolations weren’t panicking. It was because they were already used to it. Especially after they learned that the Tianling Sect Leader had personally led a team to suppress the devil’s realm, they were all relieved.
It was because the Tianling Sect Leader had brought the Heaven-Earth Bell with him.
It was said that the Heaven-Earth Bell contained a trace of inner energy from the Tianling Sect’s Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster.
Many people didn’t know about the Heaven-Earth Bell, but some people still remembered that it had suppressed seven to eight Nascent Soul stage cultivators. If it wasn’t for the Nascent Soul stage cultivator’s ability to switch between reality and virtual, gathering and dispersing at their will, the few Nascent Soul stage cultivators would not be able to escape death in the end.
With the Heaven-Earth Bell around, even if a Devil Supreme appeared, it would have to obediently leave!
It was the power of the Tianling Sect’s Nascent Soul stage Grandmaster!
At this moment, a black mist appeared out of thin air near the Utopia Immortal City. The black mist appeared to be conscious and was constantly emitting a ferocious light, but it was helplessly suppressed.
It was a part of the devil’s realm.
The devil’s realm retreated, however, not because someone came to suppress it for the sake of the world.
Meanwhile, two people were hiding in the black mist.
One of them was slender, with a pair of picturesque eyebrows and charming facial features that were as pure as snow.
Other than Su Yier, who else could it be?
As the first “protagonist,” Su Yier’s appearance was naturally unrivaled in the world, peerless, and devastatingly beautiful!
The other one was a strange man who appeared from time to time.
However, even though he was strange, the man’s appearance was also rare in the world! His facial features were sharp and angular. Besides his handsome face, one could see the overbearing look in his deep eyes.
Suddenly, the man chuckled at Su Yier, “What’s wrong? You’re stunned because I’m more handsome than Ling Xiaojiu? Then tell me, who makes you more satisfied, me or your master?”
Upon hearing his teasing words, Su Yier pulled her dress up and turned around to leave.
However, before Su Yier could take two steps, she was pulled into the arms of the man behind her.
The man said faintly, “Hey, don’t be angry. I can’t leave you right now. If I appear in the Nine Desolations now, I’ll definitely die. Even an Immortal Ascension stage immortal Almighty will find it difficult to escape the heavenly tribulation of the Nine Desolations.” Afterward, he pretended to be aggrieved and said, “I only revealed my strength for you!”
Hearing it, Su Yier didn’t intend to leave anymore.
Su Yier snorted, “Then let go of me!”
“I was wrong, alright? Let me hug you a little longer.” As the man said it, his hands began to move skillfully as if he were forming seals.
Su Yier’s fair face instantly blushed.
Su Yier pouted.
As Su Yier said this, she glared at him with a dazed look. With a glance, it was as if water could be seen in her eyes.
“I can’t stay still. I’ve taken that Nascent Soul stage’s life, so even if his cultivation is halved, I don’t dare accept it completely. That’s why I can only let you accept it. It’s a pity that you haven’t broken through the Nascent Soul stage. Otherwise, you could’ve ranked 7 in the Core Formation stage! It will save you hundreds of years from cultivating hard!”
On Mount Hanwan, Fang Jinyu was flipping through the prescriptions.
The female cultivator was indeed Nangong Li. She had brought Fang Jinyu to her immortal estate and given him access to a few restrictive enchantments before letting him browse through them.
Nangong Li’s collection was here, and most of the elixir manuals weren’t available in the Tianling Sect.
Obviously, it was the Holy Alchemist’s collection.
Fang Jinyu read it seriously because he could use most of what he had learned.
In the beginning, Fang Jinyu was in a hurry to read. He had thought that Nangong Li would only let him stay here for ten days. However, when he realized that Nangong Li had started her closed-door cultivation, Fang Jinyu was no longer in a hurry. He only read one book a day, and he would flip through the books that he had read before.
[Today is a day for understanding the Feng Shui alchemy technique. However, there are no gains for today.]
[Refined understanding of the Feng Shui alchemy technique +1]
Carefully studying the information in his mind, Fang Jinyu’s lips curled into a smile. He had learned another alchemy technique.
It was a special alchemy technique for refining the Core Formation stage and Nascent Soul stage elixirs!
Unlike the Foundation Establishment stage and Qi Condensation stage elixirs, refining the Core Formation stage and Nascent Soul stage elixirs were often more complicated. Some could be refined using an alchemy furnace, but some couldn’t.
It was especially for the Nascent Soul stage elixirs. Sometimes, alchemists would need to use the changes of the Four Seasons, spring, summer, autumn, and winter, and the circulation pattern of the twenty-four solar terms to refine them. There were even some who needed to make use of the changes in the mountains and rivers and the changes in the sun and moon. Usually, it would take decades to refine a single elixir!
“Eh? You’re reading this? You seem to have gained something, right?” At this moment, Fang Jinyu suddenly heard a cold voice.
Fang Jinyu quickly stood up and said, “Martial Aunt Nangong.”
Nangong Li nodded slightly, then walked up to Fang Jinyu and asked, “What do you think of the knowledge related to the earth vein that is mentioned in the Feng Shui alchemy technique?”
Fang Jinyu thought for a moment, and without hiding anything, he explained everything he had learned.
Although Fang Jinyu could gain a lot from obtaining talents from his system, most of the time, there was a basic rule to the gains.
Fang Jinyu’s “hard work” would ultimately result in his “gains.”
If Fang Jinyu studied hard and gained nothing, the system would definitely give him some gains in understanding, which would allow him to successfully cultivate to the beginner level.
However, if Fang Jinyu were to gain minor success from his hard work, then he would gain something that would instantly benefit him to reach phenomenal success!
Therefore, if Fang Jinyu wanted to upgrade his gains, he had to improve his foundation of “hard work.”
Since Nangong Li was a Core Formation stage Holy Alchemist who could refine Nascent Soul stage elixirs, Fang Jinyu believed that he would definitely benefit greatly if he could receive her guidance!
At this moment, Nangong Li’s eyes revealed a look of surprise.
Nangong Li had only asked casually so that she could take the opportunity to give him some advice. After all, it was inappropriate to just bring a person who contributed to discovering the devil’s realm here and let him study the prescriptions alone.
Although a Foundation Establishment stage cultivator without any background wouldn’t dare to complain if she did that, it was not her character!
Nangong Li suddenly asked, “Have you successfully refined a Core Formation stage elixir before?”
Fang Jinyu hesitated for a moment, then nodded.
“I was lucky enough to succeed once.”
Nangong Li immediately laughed and said, “That old man always thought that he had managed the Tianling Sect well. However, he doesn’t even know that the sect has another Holy Alchemist!”
Fang Jinyu quickly pretended to hear nothing.
Meanwhile, Fang Jinyu thought, “There is something wrong with this pair of master and disciple!”
At the same time, Fang Jinyu deliberately said in a submissive tone, “But… Martial Aunt, I was just lucky that time…”
“If you succeed once, then you’ve more or less grasped some of the essences of the Core Formation stage elixir. After that, it’s just a matter of refining it a few more times. It’s just so that I have two prescriptions here, both of which are commonly used by Core Formation stage cultivators. Take them and study them. Just refine the elixir that you think you can do it. As for the spirit herbs you need, you can take five sets for each…”
As Nangong Li spoke, she suddenly felt guilty and quickly corrected her words. She said, “Ahem! Three sets! If you fail all of them, I won’t be able to explain myself.”
“Thank you so much, Martial Aunt!” Fang Jinyu understood what she meant. Someone must have asked the Core Formation stage Holy Alchemist Nangong Li to refine elixirs for him and given her 10 sets of spirit herbs. Seven sets of spirit herbs were enough for her to refine enough elixirs to complete her task, even if Fang Jinyu failed and wasted the three sets of spirit herbs.
In other words, the three sets of spirit herbs were all given to Fang Jinyu for practice. It didn’t matter if he succeeded or not.
