Chapter 62: Origin Gathering Pill
Translator: / KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
Even though Duan Ling Tian and Li Fei didn't make any real progress for the time being...
For now, Li Fei wasn't disgusted by him anymore, and to him, this was good news in itself.
Now what he needed to do was strike the iron while it was still hot.
Duan Ling Tian smiled lightly as he asked Li Fei, "Tomorrow afternoon, I plan to take a trip to the Misty Forest with Ke Er. Are you interested?"
"Asking me to be a third wheel? I won't go."
Li Fei gave Duan Ling Tian a disdainful glance.
"Then forget it. I was even thinking of bringing you along to see a Snow Python... Hehe, a fierce beast comparable to a Nascent Soul powerhouse. That's something that is rarely seen in anyone's lifetime."
Duan Ling Tian heaved a sigh on purpose.
"What? Snow Python?"
Li Fei's clear eyes shone and her beautiful and seductive face emitted a slight excitement.
She had heard of the news from before.
A Snow Python had appeared in the Misty Forest. This news caused her to feel incomparably shocked, and in her heart she was filled with curiosity and yearning.
Duan Ling Tian lowered his head, busy playing with the little black python on his own...
"Hey, you really have a way to meet the Snow Python?" Li Fei asked in a light voice.
Duan Ling Tian didn't raise his head as if he didn't hear her.
Li Fei groaned.
Duan Ling Tian had a lazy expression as he slowly said, "Hey what? My name isn't hey. Weren't you uninterested?"
Suddenly, Li Fei seemed agitated. Her clear eyes had signs of tearing up as if she would cry at any moment...
"What are you doing? What's there to cry about... I'll bring you along."
He was thrown into a panic as the scene before him was something he never expected.
From his past life until this present lifetime, the thing he couldn't stand seeing the most was a woman's tears.
"You promised! You're not allowed to shamelessly go against your word!"
Li Fei's seducing and beautiful face emitted a smile that showed that her scheme had succeeded.
"I got cheated!"
Only now did Duan Ling Tian realize, and he had a bitter smile on his face.
Li Fei and Ke Er were complete polar opposites...
Maybe it was this that caused him to fall in love with Li Fei at first sight.
After dinner, Duan Ling Tian sent Li Fei home.
Only now did he notice that Li Fei's house was right behind his, only divided by a small alley.
Even if he walked through the main door, circling around wouldn't even be a few tens of meters distance.
And if he were to directly leap over the wall, he could even save on the extra distance.
After returning home, Duan Ling Tian entered his room and started to cultivate.
The Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique's Spirit Serpent Form mental cultivation method had already been cultivated to the highest stage.
What he needed to do now was to cultivate the Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique's second form.
Raging Python Form!
Now that his fleshly body had reached the peak of the Body Tempering Stage, Duan Ling Tian noticed that the Seven Treasures Body Tempering Liquid had become completely useless to him.
What he needed to do now was cultivate his Raging Python Form mental cultivation method to develop Origin Energy.
Once he develops his Origin Energy, he will be a Core Formation martial artist.
His strength would once again increase!
"Tomorrow, I'll go buy some Origin Gathering Pills. It's going to cost me an arm and leg..."
Duan Ling Tian had a painful expression.
The Origin Gathering Pill is a Grade Eight Medicinal Pill.
A type of medicinal pill that assists Body Tempering martial artists in increasing their speed of developing Origin Energy. It's a medicinal pill used for stepping into the Core Formation Stage, so it's extremely expensive.
A single pill costs 10,000 silver!
Martials artists with good natural talent need to consume at least ten Origin Gathering Pills if they want to step into the Core Formation Stage in a short amount of time.
Martial artists with bad natural talent, on the other hand, need at least tens of pills.
Of course, it wasn't necessary...
But if not consumed, even a martial artist with good natural talent would need to spend a few years of bitter cultivation in order to break through to the Core Formation Stage.
For example, the Core Formation martial artists of the Fresh Breeze Town Branch Family, including its Patriarch, Li Nan Feng, and all its elders.
When all of them cultivated from the Body Tempering Stage to the Core Formation Stage all those years ago, even the individuals among them with good natural talent used three to five years of time, whereas the individuals with bad natural talent used seven to eight years of time.
Not due to any other reason, but just because they didn't have the capability to use Origin Gathering Pills.
During this year's Clan Martial Meet, including Li Fei, the five youth geniuses were only able to step into the Core Formation Stage at the mere age of eighteen because besides having good natural talent, they consumed Origin Gathering Pills.
Medicinal pills were capable of changing a person's life.
This was the reason alchemists had such a lofty position in Cloud Continent.
The higher the alchemist's grade, the higher his status. They are figures that are fought over for by various powers.
"It's too bad that I haven't developed my Origin Energy. Once I do so, I'll be a Grade Nine Alchemist!"
Duan Ling Tian sighed in his heart.
If an ordinary person wanted to become an alchemist, even with extremely high alchemist natural talent and with the guidance of a master, it would still require a few years of painstaking cultivation to master the rudiments.
However, Duan Ling Tian possessed the memories of Rebirth Martial Emperor.
Rebirth Martial Emperor was a Royal Grade Alchemist.
In terms of alchemy, he could be considered the second Rebirth Martial Emperor.
As long as his Origin Energy fulfilled the required conditions, he would be an alchemist with extremely abundant experience.
What other alchemists knew, he knew.
What other alchemists didn't know, he still knew.
"The pressing matter at the moment is developing Origin Energy and stepping into the Core Formation Stage so that I can become an alchemist. At that time, I can refine medicinal pills that increase the Core Formation Stage cultivation, and even let mother undergo a metamorphosis, allowing her to cultivate a top ranked cultivation method."
Duan Ling Tian drew in a deep breath.
His attention quickly returned to the Raging Python Form mental cultivation method.
After looking through the Raging Python Method mental cultivation method for a while, Duan Ling Tian's pupils constricted.
As expected of the cultivation method created by Rebirth Martial Emperor who had undergone two lifetimes; this Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique's second form, Raging Python Form, besides allowing the cultivator to develop Origin Energy like ordinary martial artists, it also allowed the cultivator to temper the fleshy body with Origin Energy, causing the fleshy body to undergo another metamorphosis!
Once Duan Ling Tian cultivated to the first level of the Core Formation Stage by relying upon the Raging Python Form, besides controlling similar Origin Energy as ordinary martial artists, he could still use his origin energy to temper his fleshly body, allowing his fleshly to once again undergo a metamorphosis.
The mere strength of the fleshly body would transform from the current strength of three ancient mammoths to a strength of four ancient mammoths.
Adding on the Origin Energy which was comparable to the strength of an ancient mammoth.
In other words, the moment he steps into the first level of the Core Formation Stage, he will possess the strength of five ancient mammoths.
The strength of five ancient mammoths...
Compared to the fourth level of the Core Formation Stage, it was slightly weaker.
Compared to the third level of the Core Formation Stage, it would be slightly stronger.
Drawing in a deep breath, Duan Ling Tian started to cultivate.
But without Origin Gathering Pills, his cultivation process was extremely slow.
Until late into the night, there wasn't any obvious progress.
"I'm still too impatient."
Shaking his head, Duan Ling Tian went off to sleep...
He slept until the sky was bright.
Morning the next day.
After eating breakfast, he brought Ke Er along and left.
He arrived once again at the medicine store in the Aurora City trade market that he sold his Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid at.
"Customer, you've finally arrived."
Seeing Duan Ling Tian, the manager seemed as if he had found his savior. He hurriedly came over and greeted him.
"What, you're all sold out?"
Duan Ling Tian laughed.
"It's all sold out, an entire 2,000 portions, completely sold..."
The manager nodded, withdrawing a stack of silver bills from his pocket and handing them over to Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian was dazed.
"Customer, you concocted 2,000 portions of Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid the other day. I sold them at a price of 200 silver a portion, but the supply wasn't enough to meet the demand. According to our agreement, you get 80% of the sales, which totals to 320,000 silver. Deducting the 200,000 silver I gave you the other day, this is the balance 120,000 silver."
The manager explained.
"200 silver a portion?"
Duan Ling Tian was startled, following which he shook his head and laughed.
You really need to be shrewd to do business!
"Customer, since you're here, how about you concoct the Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid once more?"
The manager looked at Duan Ling Tian with anticipation.
"I came here this time because of that. Help me prepare the medicinal materials."
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
"They are already ready."
When Duan Ling Tian and Ke Er entered the small room and saw the two large crocks and the large pile of medicinal materials, they were both stupefied.
This time, he spent an entire two hours to concoct the two large crocks of Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid.
After checking the wares, the manager was slightly worried as he said, "Customer, I don't have much liquid funds on hand, so I'll only be able to give you 200,000 silver in advance. How about it? Once these medicinal liquids are sold out, I'll give you the remaining silver."
After all, no matter which medicine store Duan Ling Tian brought this batch of Six Treasures Body Tempering Liquid to, he would still be able to sell it and maybe even get a higher price.
"It's not a problem, of course. I trust you, Manager."
Duan Ling Tian nodded, putting away another 200,000 silver bills.
Sometimes, trust went two ways.
"Manager, it can't be that you alone divided the large crock of Six Treasure Body Tempering Liquid from last time into 2,000 portions, right?"
Duan Ling Tian looked at the manager with a strange gaze.
"Of course not. I couldn't trust others, so I got people from my family members to divide it."
The manager laughed.
"Oh yeah, Manager, do you know which medicine store in the Aurora City trade market sells Origin Gathering Pills?" Duan Ling Tian inquired.
"Origin Gathering Pills? I'm afraid you probably need to go to the branch medicine stores that are under the three great Clans of Aurora City... Customer, your Li Clan's branch medicine store, Spirit Reserves Pavilion, is just at the street in front."
The manager pointed outside.
Duan Ling Tian nodded as he took Ke Er along and left the medicine store.
After a short moment, he arrived at the Spirit Reserves Pavilion the manager spoke about.
As expected of the Li Clan's branch medicine store, the total area of the Spirit Reserves Pavilion was extremely large, and even divided into two floors.
"Customer, may I know what you need?"
After just entering the door, an attendant greeted in a respectful tone.
"I want some Origin Gathering Pills."
Duan Ling Tian proclaimed his reason for coming.
"The Origin Gathering Pills are on the second floor. Customer, please follow me."
The attendant brought Duan Ling Tian and Ke Er to the second floor.
"This customer here needs some Origin Gathering Pills," the attendant told the female attendant behind the counter before returning to the first floor.
"Customer, may I ask how many Origin Gathering Pills you need?"
The female attendant had average looks, but her smile was extremely cheerful and bright.
Duan Ling Tian patted the silver pills in his pocket before slowly saying, "Give me 32 pills."
Hearing what he said, the female attendant was shocked.
But she quickly reacted anyway.
"Customer, are you sure it's 32 pills? One Origin Gathering Pill is..."
The female attendant was slightly hesitant.
"Is 10,000 silver, right?"
Duan Ling Tian smiled indifferently as he withdrew the stack of silver bills he got from the medicine store manager, directly throwing it on the counter.
"Customer, I'm sorry. I'll go prepare them for you right away!"
After seeing so many silver bills, she knew that the youth wasn't joking. The female attendant let out a breath of cold air before replying to him and going to prepare the Origin Gathering Pills...
"Young Master, what medicinal pill are you buying? It's so expensive."
Ke Er playfully poked out her tongue with an expression of shock.
Duan Ling Tian smiled as he said, "The Origin Gathering Pill, it's a medicinal pill that can help us to break through to the Core Formation Stage earlier."
