Translator: Lordbluefire Editor: - -
A strange smile involuntarily appeared on Qin Wentian's face when he heard Moon's words. Moon looked at his smile and asked, "How about you? You are so good in weapon forging, but how's your combat prowess? This time there will be many Heaven Chosen heading to the Sacred Battle Platform to witness the battle between Di Shi and Qin Wentian. Would you be going?"
"I think so." Qin Wentian shrugged and laughed, "However before this, I need to pay a visit to the Flying Immortal Tower."
"Oh seeing that you prepared such a vast quantity of top-tier fourth-ranked divine weapons, what do you want to exchange exactly?" Moon blinked. Before this, Qin Wentian had asked her where in the Royal Sacred City would one be able to trade for unique treasures. She told Qin Wentian that the Flying Immortal Tower was the place he was looking for.
The Sacred Royal City had the largest transaction grounds in the Royal Sacred Region. Also, there were many of these large transaction grounds that belonged to various powers. The Flying Immortal Tower was one among them. Their foundation was incomparably solid and the saying went that as long as you can pay the price, the Flying Immortal Tower would be able to produce whatever you wanted.
"Sky Demon Oracle Bone." Qin Wentian smiled, Moon felt her body trembling slightly as she turned her incredulous gaze onto Qin Wentian. Ordinary people would have never heard of this item, but herself, as a weaponsmith, how could she not know about this legendary material, the Sky Demon Oracle Bone? It was rumored that this material could be used to forge a Fiendgod Armor, and was the supreme material to use for those who wanted to forge defensive-attributed divine weapons.
"But for that item, even if you have many divine weapons, it might not be so easy for you to obtain the Sky Demon Oracle Bone in trade," Moon whispered.
"Mhm, hence what I want to trade is only some amounts of the bone powder from the Sky Demon Oracle Bones." Qin Wentian shook his head with a bitter smile on his face. The Sky Demon Oracle Bone was a must-have material if he wanted to cultivate a fiendgod physique. But right now, seeing that he was just at the beginning stages, it was still possible for him to use the powder form instead.
"I really don't know what you want to do," Moon pouted. "When are you free to visit the Flying Immortal Tower, I can accompany you there."
"It's fine, I can go alone. It's better for you to use the remaining time to practice for the year end examination," Qin Wentian smiled. Moon didn't persist on as well, she lightly nodded her head in agreement.
The largest transaction grounds of the Royal Sacred Region were situated within the Sacred Royal City. It was approximately around a thousand miles circumference, and unending streams of people would visit here everyday. Even Celestial Phenomenon Ascendants would frequent this place.
However, as the most mysterious transaction ground with the greatest foundation, there weren't really many people who visited the Flying Immortal Tower.
Because, the rules of transacting here was different from other places. Ordinary people would love to go to the other transaction grounds to try their luck, but here in the Flying Immortal Tower, they had their own unique set of rules that everyone must follow.
There was only a single building for the Flying Immortal Tower, and around this building there were several pavilions situated with it in the centre. At this moment, a group of young men appeared at the Flying Immortal Tower as one of them waved his hands, causing a treasure to fly into the tower. At the same time, he spoke, "I wished to exchange that for twin spears. They must be of the top-grade, and fourth-ranked. It would be the best if the weapons had both offensive and defensive attributes together."
"Right. Come back a day later to get what you desire," a voice echoed out from the Flying Immortal Tower. The transaction was concluded.
After this, a second person sent a treasure flying into the tower. He wanted to exchange for an extremely rare, fourth-ranked medicinal pill.
"These people should all be from the Cold Slaughter Sect." The surrounding crowd mused as they saw the group of young men currently below the tower.
"Mhm. that person who transacted for the twin spears should be Xue Yunfan of the Cold Slaughter Sect. He is extremely powerful and is a famous Heaven Chosen." Somebody spoke. There were almost countless number of Heaven Chosen in this incomparably vast Royal Sacred Region. Hence there would be some Heaven Chosen who might be very powerful but they were unknown by the general populace.
Not far from here, yet another group of young cultivators could be seen walking over, all of them projecting an extraordinary aura.
"Why is Wang Yunfei here as well? I heard that he planned to go to the Sacred Battle Platform to challenge Qin Wentian, I wonder if he is prepared." Upon seeing the young man in the lead, the gazes of the crowd froze. Wang Yunfei was exceptionally famous because not only his martial talent was impressive, his attainments in weapon forging and divine inscriptions were very high as well.
Not far behind Wang Yunfei, there was an ordinary-looking man wearing a conical hat. Yet, the eyes of the man gleamed with a light that exuded sharpness.
This man was none other than Qin Wentian, he had met Wang Yunfei once before and on his way here, when he saw that his group was ahead of him, he was a little bewildered, but didn't really think too much into it and continued walking.
Not long later, Wang Yunfei and his group arrived at the Flying Immortal Tower only to see Xue Yunfan looking at him as he inquired, "Wang Yunfei, to think that there would actually be treasures that you lack?"
Who didn't know that weaponsmiths were all filthy rich? Wang Yunfei's abilities in the field of weapon forging were exceptional, he naturally wouldn't lack ordinary treasures.
Wang Yunfei glanced at Xue Yunfan before shifting his gaze onto the Flying Immortal Tower. After that, he stretched his hands out as over ten divine weapons flew up into the tower. The divine weapons hummed and let out a brilliant glow, causing many to be taken aback. Wang Yunfei's trade items were certainly extraordinary.
"Trading all of them for the bone powder of the Sky Demon Oracle Bone," Wang Yunfei stated.
"Come back in three days for your item," a voice issued from the Flying Immortal Tower. Wang Yunfei nodded, it wasn't strange for this place to possess the bone powder of the Sky Demon Oracle Bone.
"What armor are you planning to forge? To think that you would require the bone powder of the Sky Demon Oracle Bone." An expression of interest appeared on Xue Yunfan's face as he looked at Wang Yunfei. Qin Wentian who was behind him also had a strange expression on his face. Who would have thought that the item Wang Yunfei wanted to trade for would be the same as him? However, Wang Yunfei's purpose for the materials was for weapon forging.
Qin Wentian walked up, after which he waved his hands as a dangerous whistling sound resounded through the air. Numerous divine weapons sparkled with dazzling light, so bright that it blinded the eyes of others, causing the hearts of the crowd to shudder when they gazed at this young man in the conical bamboo hat. Wasn't the behavior of this man a little too domineering?
"Change all of them into the bone powder of the Sky Demon Oracle Bone," Qin Wentian spoke in a low voice. Instantly, silence was everywhere. And soon after that, Qin Wentian could clearly feel a powerful perception sweeping towards him. It should be the perception of a Celestial Phenomenon Ascendant. They naturally had to ascertain the aura and facial features of the person who come forth to transact so as to prevent cases of fraud or mistaken identity when the trader came to claim their transacted goods in the future.
"Please wait a moment," a voice rang out, as though they couldn't be certain if they had enough of the bone powder to go around. At this moment, Wang Yunfei's eyes turned sharp as he stared at Qin Wentian. "Sir, why do you need so much bone powder of the Sky Demon Oracle Bone? Isn't it a little too much to use for weapon creation?"
Qin Wentian merely glanced at Wang Yunfei and didn't reply. Wang Yunfei had no way to determine Qin Wentian's identity and hence he dared not be too brazen. Seeing that Qin Wentian wasn't going to reply, he didn't continue asking, yet his heart was thinking this person was able to take out so many top-tier fourth-ranked divine weapons to exchange. Not only that, this man in the conical bamboo hat should only be a Heavenly Dipper Sovereign.
"Come back in three days for the powder," After some time, that voice from the Flying Immortal Tower spoke again. Qin Wentian nodded before he turned and departed. However he didn't leave the transaction grounds, but chose to roam around it instead, seeking the other materials which he needed. After all, he still had enough divine weapons in his inventory to make a trade.
A few hours later, Qin Wentian returned to the Divine Weapon Academy, and resumed forging weapons while guiding Moon. Although he didn't need such a large amount of divine weapons, these could all be used to exchange for Yuan Meteor Stones or other cultivation resources. Who would feel that they had enough divine weapons?
Three days later, when Qin Wentian went to the tower for his bone powder, he discovered that Wang Yunfei and Xue Yunfan were already there. Upon noting his arrival, they all turned their gazes onto him, as though they were waiting for him. This, caused the eyes of Qin Wentian to gleam with sharpness.
"I'm here to take the bone powder which I transacted," Qin Wentian spoke.
"Come." The voice rang out of the Flying Immortal Tower. Qin Wentian walked up slowly to the transaction window as the person passed an interspatial ring to Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian accepted the ring and checked its content, while silently cursing the fact that even the bone powder of the Sky Demon Oracle Bone was simply too valuable. Despite so many divine weapons being put up for the trade, the amount of bone powder obtained was actually so little.
"You can come up as well, however take note that the amount might be a little lesser. We will return the excess divine weapons to you," a voice spoke to Wang Yunfei, the words spoken causing Wang Yunfei's countenance to turn incredibly unsightly. That was the rule set by the Flying Immortal Tower, as long as they promised you something, you could be sure that they would keep their word. However, if there were people behind you who put forth an even better trade, they would prioritize the one who made the better offer. And if the promised amount to you was insufficient, they would simply return what you transacted. The amount of divine weapons Qin Wentian offered far exceeded what Wang Yunfei provided. Hence, he was the priority.
"Hold on." Just when Qin Wentian wanted to leave, Wang Yunfei called out to stop him. Qin Wentian halted his steps only to hear Wang Yunfei saying, "I will pay double the price to exchange the powder from you. How about it?"
"No thanks." Qin Wentian faintly replied before continuing his way.
The eyes of a person beside Xue Yunfan glimmered with a cold light as he smiled, "Brother Wang, you've heard what he said right?"
Wang Yunfei turned his gaze onto Xue Yunfan and his group, there were plenty of experts within, and he instantly understood what Xue Yunfan wanted to do. He then snorted coldly, did Xue Yunfan think he could use him? This group of people were obviously here for Qin Wentian, they had even investigated Qin Wentian's cultivation level. Wang Yunfei couldn't be bothered with Xue Yunfan, he naturally wouldn't be the person who acted to probe Qin Wentian's combat prowess.
Indeed, upon seeing Wang Yunfei not intending to move, Xue Yunfan and his group stepped out and surrounded Qin Wentian.
Qin Wentian wanted to leave instantly after acquiring his transacted item. After all, according to the rules of the tower, the instant they handed the item over to you, they are no longer responsible for what happened to it. Hence, he was targeted by Xue Yunfan and his group. Qin Wentian's perception swept out and he instantly discovered that there were five at the eighth level of Heavenly Dipper and three at the ninth level.
Such a team formation truly could be considered well prepared.
Qin Wentian frowned and coldly spoke, "Can I help you with something?"
"Leave that interspatial ring from the Flying Immortal Tower here." Xue Yunfan coldly spoke. He personally witnessed Qin Wentian use a large quantity of divine weapons to transact for that. The value of that interspatial ring should be worth around a few hundred of top-tier fourth-ranked divine weapons. And for him, Xue Yunfan, he only had those two fourth-ranked weapons which he transacted from the Flying Immortal Tower two days ago.
"No can do." Qin Wentian replied. A terrifying aura gushed out from Xue Yunfan, his eyes flashed with murder as he regarded Qin Wentian.
"Why must you be so obstinate?" Killing intent permeated the air. There weren't many who dared to perform a robbery out in broad daylight in the Sacred Royal City. After all, those who came to the Flying Immortal Tower for transactions all probably had extraordinary background. Qin Wentian's identity was unclear and if it wasn't for the fact that the items on him had such an immense value, these people from the Cold Slaughter Sect would have never chosen to take the risk.
Abruptly, Qin Wentian's silhouette flickered and soared up into the sky. Xue Yunfan's countenance changed, he erupted forth with his twin spears, his might akin to angry dragons rushing out as a terrifying pressure descended downwards.
Qin Wentian stabbed his sword fingers upwards, instantly creating a terrifying wave of formless sword intent that whistled through the sky.
At that instant, Xue Yunfan trembled violently, he only felt his entire person was enveloped by a beyond terrifying killing intent. He couldn't help but stare at Qin Wentian with terror in his eyes.
"Die then." Qin Wentian flicked his fingers as the sounds of piercing rang out. Xue Yunfei was directly pierced through by the formless sword intent. The center of his brow bled as his eyes were filled with regret!
