Chapter 125 - 125 Actually, I’m an Alchemist
125 Actually, I’m an Alchemist
A magic treasure that was compatible with Fang Jinyu’s spiritual roots was finally reaching its minor success level. It made him happy, and he prepared to start another closed-door cultivation.
However, Fang Jinyu was now a general guard of the Demon-extinguishing Immortal City. Although Commander Yin’s sister, who was 300 pounds, had once told him that because more than a dozen general guards had died in the past few years, there wouldn’t be any war mobilization before they were enough, to ensure he could escape in time, he had deliberately set up a restrictive enchantment.
As long as Commander Yin sent someone to look for him, the people in the front courtyard would only need to place his edict or document in the designated location, and Fang Jinyu would immediately wake up!
After all, running away was also a matter of particular importance.
How to run, where to run, and whether to run with others to reduce the chances of encountering danger, all needed to be carefully considered.
Fang Jinyu took out the bottle of Core-Tempering Elixirs that he had refined in the Nine Desolations. Sensing the rich spiritual power in these elixirs, he couldn’t help but want to compare them with the elixirs here.
But for now, Fang Jinyu should focus on cultivation and strive to improve his cultivation base to rank 2 in the Core Formation stage.
After consuming a Core-Tempering Elixir, Fang Jinyu began to communicate with the power of lightning and to cultivate. However, what surprised Fang Jinyu was that perhaps because his core had increased by half a grade, this time the speed of refining the Core-Tempering Elixir was even faster than the last time.
It only took Fang Jinyu a short ten days to completely refine the Core-Tempering Elixir!
Feeling the substantial increase in his inner energy, Fang Jinyu thought for a moment, then took out the nameless mirror and injected his inner energy again.
Fang Jinyu still had to use about 60% of his inner energy before the nameless mirror showed the image.
However, the person in front of Fang Jinyu wasn’t Xin Qianqian. Instead, it was the exquisite face of a certain little girl. Moreover, the moment she opened her mouth, he felt as if his vision had blacked out.
“How many days has it been in the Nine Desolations? Ever since I contacted you last time.” Fang Jinyu quickly asked about serious matters.
“Let me count… Oh, ten days.” The little girl counted with her little fingers.
Fang Jinyu didn’t hesitate to cut off his inner energy. It seemed that the flow of time in the Nine Desolations was indeed the same as the flow of time in the upper world.
Fang Jinyu had predicted it before, but he didn’t have any evidence, so he didn’t dare jump to conclusions.
Afterward, Fang Jinyu swallowed another Core-Tempering Elixir.
Due to the increase in refining speed, it had only been less than a year since Fang Jinyu had used up the entire bottle of Core-Tempering Elixirs. At this time, he had already broken through to rank 2 in the Core Formation stage.
Fang Jinyu had broken through the first bottleneck of the Core Formation stage unusually smoothly this time. It should be related to the fact that his core had already surpassed the scope of an ordinary first-grade core.
“Maybe… I’ll have less than nine bottlenecks in the Core Formation stage now.”
After guessing for a while, Fang Jinyu got up and prepared to leave.
Fang Jinyu prepared to reveal his strength as an alchemist. However, he wasn’t going to reveal all of his reveal ability. He would only show the standard of an ordinary alchemist.
After all, Fang Jinyu had to collect prescriptions and spirit herbs. Therefore, the situation was unavoidable.
Moreover, Fang Jinyu wanted to see if there were any magical existences similar to the Nine Desolations’ alchemical assembly line in the upper realm. Every hundred years, a large batch of elixirs would be refined, and the success rate was ridiculously high.
Initially, Fang Jinyu had a chance to see the thing. He only needed to wait for half of a sixty-year cycle before that magical existence would appear. However, Fang Jinyu naturally couldn’t see it now.
It was because people could only send spirit herbs there but couldn’t stay there.
Some immortal sects and great clans had once tried it, but it caused the Nine Desolations to have an additional type of elixir—a strange elixir that was refined using cultivators as spirit herbs!
Afterward, for some unknown reason, as soon as the elixir appeared, it was completely banned.
Moreover, it was said that many cultivators had died at that time.
Fang Jinyu only found out after he became the Tianling Sect Leader.
Fang Jinyu put away the two superior-grade spirit tools and went outside. However, he only saw a few maidservants. The other servants were nowhere to be seen. The maids also noticed Fang Jinyu. One of them saw Fang Jinyu’s gaze shift slightly and quickly said, “Lord General Guard, Brother Liu saw that you’re in closed-door cultivation, so he arranged our shifts. This month, it’s our turn.”
Initially, they would change shifts once every half month, but after Fang Jinyu went into closed-door cultivation for too long, they began changing shifts once a month.
“I see. Has anything happened in the immortal city recently?” Compared to the whereabouts of the servants, Fang Jinyu was undoubtedly more concerned about this.
The maid hurriedly replied, “Lord General Guard, if you’re mentioning any big events, then everything will be as usual. However, a few days ago, Commander Yin personally came to invite you to attend his daughter’s hundred-day banquet. However, when he saw that you’re in closed-door seclusion, he ordered us not to disturb you.”
“Commander Yin’s daughter’s hundred-day banquet?” Fang Jinyu was slightly surprised. He didn’t expect Commander Yin to look old, but his soul hadn’t aged at all.
Moreover, Yin Wujiu had specially come over for this matter.
After some thought, Fang Jinyu decided to attend the banquet.
It was because there would be many Core Formation stage cultivators attending such a banquet. Fang Jinyu could take the opportunity to obtain some information or exchange some lightning-attribute spiritual items.
Fang Jinyu believed that the upper realm would be different. No matter how rare the lightning-attribute spiritual items were, they wouldn’t be rarer than the Nine Desolations. Back then, he had only found a few with the power of the Tianling Sect!
It could only be said that those great cultivation families monopolized the market too much.
Although the spiritual energy in the upper realm was surprisingly thin, there was no doubt that there were sufficient spiritual items in the upper realm since an Immortal Ascension stage cultivation could appear.
Even if the great families here were of the same character, there would always be more fish that slipped through the net!
Fang Jinyu asked the maid, “What’s your name?”
The maid was meticulous and bold, and her answer was reasonable and well-founded. Fang Jinyu couldn’t help but want to use the same trick again—to see if he could develop a method to divide the luck of that reborn person!
There was no doubt that the protagonist’s luck was heaven-defying. When her luck was monstrous, Fang Jinyu heard his “Senior Brother Meng” mention that even he could only retreat to avoid being affected by the luck.
Before Su Yier used up her luck, Fang Jinyu’s “Senior Brother Meng” didn’t dare make a move and allowed her to snatch his Heaven-Earth Bell.
It indicated how terrifying a person with strong luck was!
However, if the person’s luck were taken away, then it would be a different story!
“My name is Nie Yunyi.” The maid couldn’t help but reveal a look of joy. At the same time, her eyes were filled with excitement.
After all, the person standing in front of her was a Core Formation stage cultivator!
He was a big shot, and she could only look up to him.
“This is a bottle of Qi and Soul Replenish Elixirs. You give each of them one, and the rest will be yours. If you have any problems with your cultivation, you can tell me now.” After Fang Jinyu broke through the Core Formation stage, he took into account that he was the sect leader, so he took time to refine some of these elixirs. Although he didn’t need them, it was inevitable that he would need to reward them to Tianling Sect’s disciples.
It was said that one would only do something when he was in the position.
Nie Yunyi didn’t know what the Qi and Soul Replenish Elixirs were. After all, it was a prescription from the Nine Desolations. She had never heard of it before, but how could it be bad if it was given by a Core Formation stage cultivator? Hence, she quickly thanked him and described the few problems she had in her cultivation quickly and concisely.
It made Fang Jinyu even more interested in trying to “invest” in Nie Yunyi.
Anyway, Fang Jinyu didn’t have to pay much.
If Fang Jinyu succeeded and Nie Yunyi took away the terrifying luck of the reborn person, it would be a great joy.
“These few parts of your cultivation problems…” Fang Jinyu explained Nie Yunyi’s bottleneck in detail. After that, he remembered that the elixirs he gave her were from the Nine Desolations, so he explained, “This can be considered a Qi Condensation stage’s special elixir. It can increase one’s cultivation base and can also be used to break through. Even if one fails to break through, this pill can reduce the side effects of the failure.”
Then, after Fang Jinyu asked where the elixir store was nearby, he rushed in the direction they said.
The journey was near. Fang Jinyu arrived at his destination after crossing six or seven streets.
The elixir store was more than ten stories tall, and many Foundation Establishment stage cultivators were patrolling each floor. It could be said to have an imposing manner. Fang Jinyu glanced at the signboard at the door—”Heavenly Elixir Pavillion,” then walked in.
As soon as Fang Jinyu entered, a Foundation Establishment stage cultivator immediately came forward to greet him and said, “Lord General Han, please come in. What kind of elixirs do you want?”
Fang Jinyu asked deliberately, “How did you know about me?”
“We’re here to do business. Of course, we’ll inquire about the big shots around here!” The Foundation Establishment stage cultivator said it with a smile on his face. He didn’t seem to have any intention of deliberately pleasing him, but his words undoubtedly made people feel comfortable.
However, Fang Jinyu was unmoved.
It was because the Heavenly Elixir Pavillion was established by the three great families of the Zhudao Sect. It also indicated that the three great families were clearly in control of the changing of the guard, working for the six commanders.
However, Fang Jinyu only thought about it once before asking, “Do you have a list of elixirs?”
“Yes, I do.”
The Foundation Establishment stage cultivator answered and hurriedly respectfully took out a jade scroll and handed it to Fang Jinyu.
Fang Jinyu’s divine sense swept through it, and all the information was reflected in his mind.
The jade scrolls not only recorded the names of the elixirs but also their functions and the spirit herbs used.
It was detailed and could be said to be half a complete book of prescriptions.
Thus, Fang Jinyu bought a few elixirs he could use or was interested in.
“Lord General Han has good eyesight. Could it be that you have learned alchemy before?” After the Foundation Establishment stage cultivator found out about the elixirs Fang Jinyu had bought, he couldn’t help but ask.
It was because some of the medicinal properties of the elixirs in the jade scroll were conflicting, so they needed to look through it once to prevent customers from having problems after buying them.
“Actually, I am also an alchemist, but my skills are mediocre.” Fang Jinyu said it deliberately.
The Foundation Establishment stage cultivator was slightly shocked, and then the smile on his face became even brighter. He then said, “If that’s the case, Lord General Han, I wonder if you want some prescriptions or spirit herbs? As long as it has anything to do with elixirs, we probably have it here.”
Fang Jinyu nodded.
After taking out 100,000 spirit stones, Fang Jinyu took some elixirs, a few prescriptions, and a few spirit herbs before leaving the Heavenly Elixir Pavillion.
If it weren’t for the fact that Fang Jinyu was afraid that taking out too many spirit stones at once would cause unnecessary trouble, he would have bought more.
It was because 100,000 spirit stones were probably the most ridiculous price for a Foundation Establishment Elixir in the Nine Desolations, but here… It was enough for a Core Formation stage cultivator to do one thing.
Of course, it wouldn’t be something that required him to risk his life.
However, to be able to order Core Formation stage cultivators around, one could see its purchasing power.
