“Do you have any Clearheat Pellets?” Wei Suo was disinclined to talk rubbish with this guy. Thus, he asked directly.
“Clearheat Pellet? I do have it. However, why do you need this Pellet Medicine?” The earth yellow colored gowned old fox was a bit surprised.
“I’ve heard that there was someone buying Fire Scorpions recently. I wanted to go and hunt some Fire Scorpions to sell. Thus, I naturally need to get a Clearheat Pellet for protection. Otherwise, if I was to be accidentally stung by the Fire Scorpions and be poisoned with Fire Poison, my life would be finished.” Wei Suo casually gave a reason.
“There’s truly a fool that’s buying Fire Scorpions? Indeed, if you have a Clearheat Pellet that clears the Fire Poison from the Fire Scorpions, you should be fine.” The old fox chuckled. He extended a finger. “Since you’re a frequent customer, you know the price, one Low Quality Spiritual Stone.”
Wei Suo took a glance at the old fox. “One Energy Recovery Medicine and one Windflee Talisman, how much altogether?”
“An Energy Recovery Medicine and a Windflee Talisman cost one Low Quality Spiritual Stone. Adding the Clearheat Pellet, the grand total is two Low Quality Spiritual Stones.”
Wei Suo nodded his head straightforwardly. “For four level one Fireball Talismans, how about that?”
“Four level one Fireball Talismans?” The old fox was slightly startled. He immediately nodded. “Four level one Fireball Talismans are also worth two Low Quality Spiritual Stones. Of course I’ll take it.”
“Here you go.” From his bosom, Wei Suo took out four Fireball Talismans that he had made and handed them over to the old fox.
“These…” The old fox carefully examined the four vermillion colored technique talismans that were radiating faint heat. “Wei Suo, where did you obtain these level one Fireball Talismans? Their talisman diagram drawings seems to be very peculiar.”
“Enough of that, I know that you will not do this transaction without seeing it work.” Wei Suo gave the old fox a side-eye glance. From the old fox’s hand, he took a Fireball Talisman.
“What’s with those words. We’ve been doing business for many years, how could I possibly not trust you? It’s merely that I feared that you were scammed by someone; that’s the reason why I wanted to ask about those Fireball Talismans.” Although he said those words, the old fox’s movement did not stop. He immediately turned around and started to lead the way before Wei Suo. He directly brought Wei Suo to the entrance of a stone house located behind the shop.
“I’ll burst apart this lousy house of yours.” Cursed Wei Suo in his heart. His attention was focused on the Fireball Talisman in his right hand.
A faint purple aura was emitted out from Wei Suo’s hand. It wrapped around the vermillion technique talisman that was emitting a faint red light in his hand. “Chi!” The Fireball Talisman began to rapidly burn. A fireball appeared in Wei Suo’s hand and started to rapidly grow in size. The heat emitted by the fireball had instantly caused Wei Suo to feel a scorching sensation to his palm. At the same time, a strange sensation rose in Wei Suo’s heart.
Last time when Wei Suo used this Fireball Talisman, he did not even manage to figure out how he cast the fireball due to being too excited in successfully making the technique talisman for the first time. However, this time around, Wei Suo managed to sense it. The fireball formed by this Fireball Talisman seemed to be covered by a thin layer of his True Elemental Energy. The flames of the fireball did not spread to the outside at all.
Wei Suo lightly waved his right hand toward one of the rock house’s wall. With a woosh, the fireball was immediately and rapidly shot forward. Immediately after being shot out, the fireball rapidly grew in size and became as big as a basket. Traces of flames also began to spread from the fireball.
Flames covered the entire stone house in an instant. Part of the stone wall that the fireball hit crumbled apart. A black crater appeared on the wall.
“Holy shit!” If one does not immediately cast the fireball formed after activating the Fireball Talisman, then one’s True Elemental Energy would become unable to contain it. This would lead to the fireball exploding in one’s hand. However, one’s True Elemental Energy seemed to be able to slightly control the flight of the Fireball through striking it out with True Elemental Energy at different angles. While Wei Suo was still reminiscing the sensations that he experienced earlier, a fire pillar burst forth from the house and nearly burned his body.
“The quality of this level one Fireball Talisman is pretty good.” Once the old fox saw the fire pillar that burst forth from the house, he immediately started to beam with smiles and placed the three Fireball Talismans into his sleeve. “Wei Suo, the transaction is a deal. With another Fireball Talisman, I’ll give you a bottle of Energy Recovery Medicine, a Clearheat Pellet and a Windflee Talisman.”
“Hey, look over there, look over there. There’s a guy leaving the city with a pile of Tigermark Grass and Yellow Hair Mushrooms.”
“Haha, look at his hair. It looks like it has been burned by fire…”
“The heck do you all know. What’s with the like burned by fire, I was burned by fire, okay? Wait till I get rich, I’ll see if you can all still laugh at me then.”
Outside of Spirit Peak City’s north gate, Wei Suo carried a bunch of grass with marks like those of tiger skins and a large bag of yellow colored woolen haired mushrooms. He humphed in his heart and proceeded to run toward the direction of the Great Cyan Mountain.
Although he had unavoidably used a Fireball Talisman at the old fox’s place, Wei Suo had, at the very least, managed to obtain information from the old fox that there were reportedly a lot of Fire Scorpions in the vicinity of the Great Cyan Mountain’s copper mine located three hundred miles outside of Spirit Peak City.
The Tigermark Grass and the Yellow Hair Mushrooms that Wei Suo was carrying with him right now were the items that the green gowned old man said were capable of attracting Fire Scorpions. Although these two items were not as numerous as the Silver Candle Grass and the Firetail Flower, they were also deemed as being useless to other cultivators. Thus, the current Wei Suo who carried a whole bunch of Tigermark Grass and Yellow Hair Mushrooms on his back appeared as foolish as one could be.
The Heaven’s First Sect had already set up many conveying arrays in many locations outside of Spirit Peak City. Many low level cultivators that do not possess any flying magical treasure would use those conveying arrays to get to their destinations. However, even for the shortest distance conveying array, it still cost two to three Low Quality Spiritual Stones per use. Thus, for a poor wretch like Wei Suo, he would frequently run to his destination using his pair of legs.
Over time, Wei Suo who didn’t know any fleeing techniques actually began to be able to run extremely fast. His running speed was like a wisp of smoke. When it approached noon, Wei Suo had finally arrived at his destination, the copper mine.
The copper mine was originally abundant in copper ores. However, the copper ores in this mine had been completely extracted sixty years ago. The entire mine had a depth of twenty to thirty miles. Looking at it, it appeared no different from a ravine. The rocks and rubbles that were excavated from the mine were scattered all over the place. On top of that, there were also some deep holes from the mining. Due to the fact that this location does not produce anything anymore, there was currently no one else other than Wei Suo in the vicinity of the copper mine.
Adding on to the possessions that he originally had, Wei Suo currently carried with him two bottles of Energy Recovery Medicines, a single Clearheat Pellet, a Windflee Talisman, two level one Fireball Talismans, a single Low Quality Spiritual Stone, and his Earth Shield Treasure Talisman that could still be used one more time.
“Green haired old man, whether or not I’ll be able to become rich, it all depends on you.”
After examining that all the things that he had on him were all good, Wei Suo selected a relatively spacious and empty location. He then gathered a pile of dry wood and set them aflame with flintstones. After that, he evenly distributed the Tigermark Grass and Yellow Hair Mushrooms on the fire.
A somewhat pungent smelling yellow-green colored smoke started to rise from the fire. In less than half an incense stick worth of time, the underbrush area before him suddenly made a sound. A dark red colored Fire Scorpion scuttled out of the brush.
“Wahahaha! It’s truly useful!”
A single Fire Scorpion’s blood was sufficient enough to make about four Fire Talismans. According to the calculation of about fifty percent success rate, that meant that he would be able to successfully make two Fireball Talismans. The market value of two Fireball Talismans were a single Low Quality Spiritual Stone. Thus, at this moment, this Fire Scorpion was literally a moving Low Quality Spiritual Stone to Wei Suo. When he saw this Fire Scorpion running about, Wei Suo seemed to be seeing a Low Quality Spiritual Stone running about. Thus, when this Fire Scorpion scuttled out of the brush, Wei Suo’s eyes immediately started shining. He immediately jumped down from above the rock and charged toward this Fire Scorpion.
Before this Fire Scorpion could figure out what was happening, it saw a person charging toward it with extreme excitement. “Chi!” While the Fire Scorpion was still in a daze, Wei Suo cast two rays of Cyan Water Blades and accurately chopped off half of the head of the Fire Scorpion. The first Fire Scorpion that appeared did not even manage to make a sound before it fell to the ground, twitched and then turned motionless.
