Cheron smiled at Qin Wentian. Given Qin Wentian's attainments in inscriptions, how could he not know how to forge a weapon.
"Let's do it then, you will be the one forging while I shall aid you." Cheron laughed. Qin Wentian nodded lightly, "Many thanks to Brother Cheron."
After speaking, he stepped over, moving to the opposite of Cheron.
"Come, I'll hand over to you. What ever request you have, just speak and I will do my best to aid you." Cheron straightforwardly replied. Most probability, it would be exceedingly hard for his completed divine weapon to surpass the level of Jiang Yan's treasured pagoda. Now, he could only place his hope on Qin Wentian, hoping that he would be able to forge an extraordinary long spear.
Ghost Saber Mu Yan smiled when he saw this scene. An expression of interest flickered in his eyes. Two geniuses forging a weapon together, he was wondering what kind of quality the end product would be.
Now, there were many geniuses who had already completed peak-tier fifth-ranked weapons, it was very hard to surpass any of them unless the divine weapon Qin Wentian created had a unique property strong enough to overwhelm all others. But truly, it was very difficult, almost impossible.
Now, they could only hope for a miracle and that the weapon created by Qin Wentian would have some unique properties so that it would stand out compared to the others.
The crowd in the air all started upon hearing Qin Wentian's words. Pei Tianyuan's eyes flashed, he just spoke words to diminish Qin Wentian's dominance and yet now Qin Wentian was actually preparing to forge a weapon. Was he doing this intentionally to show him up?
He truly wanted to see what divine weapon this brat could forge and whether it would be able to surpass the divine weapons created by the other geniuses.
Regardless of the geniuses from the Jiang Clan or Ninepeak Immortal Court, their creations had already reached the peak of the fifth-rank. It was simply too difficult to surpass such accomplishments.
As for immortal-ranked weapons, he didn't even think about it. How could a third-level ascendant forge an immortal-ranked divine weapon?
Immortals were immortals because there was a clear line separating them from mortals. The distance between the two was a single step, but it was inconceivably far apart and was impossible to surmount.
Even leaving out Qin Wentian, in the entire Cloud Prefecture, there weren't any mortals who could forge an immortal-ranked weapon no matter how outstanding their talents were. And even if one counted the entire history of the Cloud Prefecture, such people could be counted on a single hand, they were extremely few in number and all of them at the very least had a cultivation base at the peak of Celestial Phenomenon. The reason why they could forge immortal weapons was because they themselves were extraordinary and already had a trace of immortal energy within their Yuanfu.
So, for Qin Wentian, a third level ascendant? Nobody even dared imagine him doing so. Even if he borrowed the power from the Nine Immortality Bells, it was an impossible feat.
"Seems like there would soon be a good show to watch." Pei Tianyuan was filled with anticipation as to what kind of divine weapon Qin Wentian would create to smack his face with, and to make him retract his earlier words.
"Haha, truly interesting. I'm filled with anticipation too." Ji Kong's countenance flashed sharply as he spoke with a smile. His eyes shifted onto Cheron and Qin Wentian.
In fact, every spectator here had their eyes turned to them. They wanted to see exactly how powerful the divine weapon forged by this young man whose attainments in runic inscriptions were so high would be.
At this moment, Qin Wentian and Cheron had already started. Not long after, Qin Wentian began controlling the tempo while Cheron, just like what he had said, did his best to assist Qin Wentian.
At this moment, Qin Wentian's perception frenziedly gushed out, permeating the atmosphere while also drifting into the Nine Immortality Bells.
He was forming a connection with the ancient bells at the same time.
"Connecting immortality through weaponsmithing. If we don't create an immortal-ranked divine weapon, how can we claim to connect with immortality?" Qin Wentian mumbled silently in his heart. Since the Driftsnow Master had left such words, it would meant that for those who formed a connection with all nine bells, they would surely have a chance to forge immortal-ranked weapons. As long as they found the true law energy that triggered the bells, they would definitely be able to do so.
The nine bells started chiming together, as though they were a single entity. Boundless runic light flashed, Qin Wentian's perception was deeply immersed within and he started to comprehend all hints of law energy that existed within each of the nine bells.
"A gaze, a palm imprint, an undying body..." Qin Wentian mumbled, at this moment nine beams of light shot towards him, immersing him within.
"I can't connect immortality but the Nine Immortal Bells can. As long as I unravel the law energy within the bells, I would be able to use that as a bridge." Qin Wentian silently speculated, he was continuously comprehending.
The other spectators only saw him standing there unmoving with his eyes closed. Boundless runic lights circulated around him, incomparably resplendent and giving others a mysterious and profound feeling. Yet, there seemed to be no actions taken with regards to the forging, causing suspicions in the hearts of others.
"Deliberately pretending to be mysterious." From the air, Jiang Yan's eyes flashed with coldness as he mocked. Evidently, he had no wish for Qin Wentian to forge a superior divine weapon compared to his.
"Over there, yet another person finished his creation." At this moment in another direction, another genius completed the forging process. However, Qin Wentian continued standing there silently and unmoving, appearing as though his earlier words were nothing but false bravado.
Time slowly flowed, Cheron was still doing his best assisting Qin Wentian, controlling the flames of the forging process. He stared at the boundless runic light circulating around Qin Wentian, he believed that Qin Wentian was currently gathering energy, condensing it to the peak or else it would be impossible to surpass the creations of others.
Cheron hoped that Qin Wentian would be able to forge a peak-tier fifth-ranked divine weapon which he had never seen before, something that nobody would ever be able to duplicate.
As time flowed, Qin Wentian still stood there unmoving silently. Gradually, the spectators started to believe that this young man clearly had no way to surpass the others.
The number of completed creations increased in number, the skies were filled with flashing lights which caused many to exclaim in awe. Most of the spectators no longer bothered to look at Qin Wentian.
"Amazing, almost everyone has finished. There are over ten geniuses who had managed to forge peak-tier fifth-ranked weapons, and they are all from the major powers of the Cloud Prefecture. As for top-tier fifth-ranked weapons, there are even more who succeeded, over a hundred. This time, it could be said that everyone had a great harvest from the manifestation of the ancient bell's spirit.
The spectators were whispering to each other, and as for those geniuses who finished their creation, they were also all exchanging knowledge and info, smiling and chatting happily.
The only regret was that, this time around, there were still no one who could unravel the secret within the Nine Immortality Bells.
It was naturally inconceivably difficult to accomplish that. Generation after generation, no one had ever done so before. In fact, there were even people speculating whether the Nine Immortality Bells truly did contain a secret within? Or maybe it was nothing but a non-existent lie.
"My King, this batch of participants aren't bad." The Driftsnow City Lord smiled at Pei Tianyuan.
"Mhm, not bad indeed. Your Driftsnow City truly enjoyed an exceptional advantage. Every time the Nine Immortality Bells starts to chime, countless geniuses would all flood this location." Pei Tianyuan laughed.
"Hahaha, indeed. Being able to see so many geniuses truly makes one happy." The City Lord also laughed.
"Everyone, after this is concluded, I wonder if the major powers would give me some face? I will organize a banquet in my manor." The City Lord clasped his hands and spoke to the various experts.
"Sure, since we are already here, we might as well enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Driftsnow Inn." Someone agreed.
"Naturally." Another person spoke. The various major powers respectively agreed. These powers were all contending against each other in the dark but on the surface, they seemed very harmonious.
"The accomplishments of the geniuses of the younger generations from the various powers truly broadened one's horizons." The City Lord politely spoke, as many humbly nodded.
At the moment when they conversed, a loud bell chime suddenly sounded out, echoing throughout the air. In an instant, silence flooded the entire place as the gazes of everyone turned to the Nine Immortality Bells.
Yet another chime reverberated throughout the air. The Nine Immortality Bells suddenly shone with boundless light, as the beams from each converged together.
"What's going on? Who triggered the bells?" Pei Tianyuan's eyes gleamed with sharpness as he surveyed the surroundings.
The third chime sounded, even louder than before. Pei Tianyuan's voice was instantly drowned out by the sound of the bells.
The fourth, and the fifth chime continued on, in the blink of an eye the ancient bells chimed a total of eight times. It was unclear which of the Nine Immortality Bells were resonating but rather, it seemed as though they were all ringing out together as one.
When the ninth chime sounded, a tempest manifested, containing boundless runic light within.
"What the hell is going on exactly?" Countless people inclined their heads, staring at the nine bells. However, nothing out of the extraordinary appeared. At this moment in Qin Wentian's perception, the nine bells had already merged into one. And above the Nine Immortality Bells entity, a surge of terrifying law energy fluctuating with formidable might transformed into the form of a towering giant that was shining with dazzling light.
"Is this the law energy hidden within the bells?" Qin Wentian's heart trembled. The light glowing from the giant contained a profoundness that was beyond him. The manifestation seemed to be created from a supreme innate technique.
"The person who connected the Nine Immortality Bells would definitely have the leverage to connect immortality through smithing a weapon." Qin Wentian spoke. At this moment, Qin Wentian waved his hands, driving the divine weapon in the process of forging into the forcefield of energy formed from the convergence of light which radiated from the nine bells.
"What is he doing?" The expressions on the faces of the crowd stiffened. They only saw Qin Wentian soaring upwards, standing atop the Nine Immortality Bell entity, exhibiting an unmatched loftiness. His palms waved as the long spear shot out, directly into the tempest of runic light.
"Connecting immortality... This law energy shall infuse the divine weapon through me." Qin Wentian mused. Right now, his aura burst forth, guiding the law energy. Instantly, the tempest transformed into a long river that directly gushed towards the long spear.
"ENTER!" Qin Wentian roared. He could sense that the towering giant was transforming into motes of energy that directly infused the divine long spear. In just an instant, the tempest calmed, the long spear radiated boundless radiance while vibrating intensely. A beam of immortal light soon erupted forth, shooting up into the skies!
"The chimes of the Nine Immortality Bells, was it caused by him?" The crowd shuddered, their eyes were all fixed on Qin Wentian as well as the divine long spear he created!
