Chapter 159: Rainbow Stone
“Dong Qingyi? The young master of East Victory?”
Wei Suo’s eyes flickered suspiciously. Soon after, a gentle chortle and a calm male voice resounded out from the esteemed patron booth opposite him. “This one does hold great interests for the two map pieces.”
“Since that’s the case, I can use 70,000 low grade spiritual stones to purchase those two map pieces.” The female cultivator’s lackadaisical voice chillingly declared. “How high are you willing to go?”
According to theory, her words were indeed not in accordance to the auction’s regulations. Nevertheless, not a single one in the auction hall voiced any objections. Instead, they all drew in cold gasps of air.
70,000 low grade spiritual stones!
Using 70,000 low grade spiritual stones to procure two map pieces. That was truly an excessively terrifying valuation! That amount of spiritual stones alone, would suffice to purchase 4-5 Spirit class artifacts.
That large-chested beauty of the Spirit Treasure Lane merely smiled faintly as she awaited. It seemed that this scenario wasn’t strange to her.
Instead, Wei Suo’s complexion became astoundingly ugly.
This was clearly not a topic regarding the valuation of both maps. It was instead both cultivators giving rent of their past grievances, attempting to compete against each other.
“Ahhh, what an insane amount.” While the auction hall was still filled with gasps of chilling air, that male voice forced out a laugh and replied, “Just a trifling two map pieces, I am willing to fork out 90,000 low grade spiritual stones.”
90,000 low grade spiritual stones!
A ruckus erupted in the entire hall. Within the silvery light screen of the hall, many female cultivators cast envious and admiring gazes apart from their shock.
To carelessly announce procuring two map pieces for 90,000 low grade spiritual stones. Such a sum was truly too frightening.
Many female cultivators who didn’t understand Dong Qingyi well, immediately committed his name to memory.
“Morons!” Wei Suo was so infuriated his complexion turned green.
90,000 low grade spiritual stones. With Dong Qingyi’s current cultivation, how long would he have to take to earn that under normal circumstances. He was clearly relying on his East Victory, throwing out spiritual stones that other disciples toiled laboriously for with their lives.
More critically, Wei Suo needed that map.
“Fine, as long as you fork out 90,000 low grade spiritual stones, I won’t vye for those two map pieces anymore.” At this moment, that female cultivator didn’t beat around the bush and urged. “Otherwise, don’t compete with me for it.”
“90,000 low grade spiritual stones.” Dong Qingyi calmly announced. “I fork out 90,000 spiritual stones for the two map pieces.”
“What should I do, do I raise?” Han Weiwei was similarly enraged and turned to Wei Suo. The first time trying to purchase something, and the price had inflated to such an extent. Moreover, she really loathed Dong Qingyi as well.
Wei Suo gritted his teeth and resolutely shook his head. “No need.”
“The valuation of 90,000 low grade spiritual stones was exceedingly overrated. Perhaps if he could confirm that Duanlong cliff housed the Goldenspot Ginseng and the Blood Dragon, he would definitely stake everything in. But more crucially, everything was still an unknown.
Furthermore, he could still devise ways to search out the map pieces in the future. Towards such a valuation, it was definitely not worth it.
Except, having something forcibly snatched away from right under his nose, he truly felt exceptionally depressed.
Now that he failed to acquire both pieces of map, he decided to look for other valuable objects he could acquire from this auction. Otherwise, it would really be a waste of his several hundred spiritual stones esteemed patron booth fee.
“The Ironburnt Wooden Sword!”
“Soaring Heaven Boat!”
After gasps of exclamations, and after someone from the Spirit Treasure Lane delivered the map pieces to the opposite booth, the auction proceeded.
The following articles weren’t very useful to Wei Suo at all. Yet Li Honglin had once again bidded for an artifact known as the Yellowcloud Magic Ring. It could conjure out regiments of yellow fog that could conceal one’s figure, and supply a half-spirit class defensive strength which could also corrode the opponent’s artifact.
“For our next article, it is the Rainbow Stone. Starting bid of 5,000 low grade spiritual stones.”
“Rainbow Stone! A Rainbow Stone is actually being auctioned!” Noticing that fist-sized Rainbow Stone in that large-chested female’s hand on the floating jasper platform, even the gloomy faced, stoning Wei Suo reflexively gasped in shock.
“What? What use does a Rainbow Stone have?” Han Weiwei observed Wei Suo’s intense reaction with awe. She had never heard of this Rainbow Stone before.
“This is a spirit stone that can be used to reconstruct a corporeal body. Some cultivators that trained in arts of soul possessing or departure will be actively seeking for such a spirit stone. Once their longevity expires but are still unable to reach a cultivation breakthrough, they will utilize this spirit stone to seek out a rebirth.” Wei Suo explained. “It is said that most arts of soul possession or departure when seeking a rebirth, would be like running water where they have to start cultivation all over again. However, this spirit stone can raise the compatibility rate of a cultivator and the corporeal body he seeks. It can allow the cultivator to preserve a large portion of his former cultivation, and lessen many negative effects of possessing a new corporeal body. Besides, if the corporeal body doesn’t suit him, his longevity would rapidly deplete once again.”
“Ah, so it’s like that.” Han Weiwei frowned. Evidently, she was against something like soul possessing another body. “Why, Wei Suo, are you interested in that?”
Wei Suo hesitated slightly. In truth, he did possess genuine interest in this spirit stone. This spirit stone was one of the necessities that could assist the old man in congealing his form.
As Wei Suo’s cultivation level continued to rise, it was high time he started preparing to assist the green gowned Old Man in congealing his form; because the Old Man wasn’t left with much longevity years. As for the materials needed for form congealment, those materials weren’t as useful as the likes of Amethyst Fox rose to other cultivators. However, they were still extremely scarce.
Like this Rainbow Stone, it was an object of peak rarity. Even the Old Man knew, the Day Bamboo Cult in the Cloud Spirit Continent had a spirit stone of the same category, known as the Goldbod Magic Imager. After the Old Man had inspected the ancient records, he affirmed that the Goldbod Magic Imager was still stored as a cult treasure of the Day Bamboo Cult. The Old Man then devised a plan that if Wei Suo couldn’t find a replacement, then he would have to rob that cult sect after breaking through to the Golden Dan Stage. Never did Wei Suo expect, there would actually be a similar type of rock right here.
Furthermore, a Golden Dan Stage expert had surfaced in the Day Bamboo several decades ago. Attempting to steal would be an immeasurably treacherous task.
“I have a friend that requires that, help me bid.” After hesitating, Wei Suo still affirmed that if he could purchase it, he would purchase it first.
“Mn.” Han Weiwei nodded and didn’t ask further. At present, the bidding price had already soared to 13,000 low grade spiritual stones.
“14,000 low grade spiritual stones!”
“15,000 low grade spiritual stones!”
The bids continued pouring in endless streams. It seems that although many cultivators were against the ideals of Soul Possession Arts, many others desired to have a life preserving art as well. Besides, though such arts couldn’t restore a person’s cultivation, one could still preserve their knowledge and memories perfectly. As long as the corporeal body possessed had normal longevity, that would be akin to another chance at living.
“20,000 low grade spiritual stones!”
At this moment, Li Honglin’s voice resounded out and caused Wei Suo’s brows to hop.
“23,000 low grade spiritual stones.” A tapered male voice casually added 3,000 low grade spiritual stones at one of the upper floor esteemed patron booth.
“25,000 low grade spiritual stones.” Li Honglin was unrelenting.
Han Weiwei hadn’t bid yet and opted to remain silent.
“28,000 low grade spiritual stones.”
“30,000 low grade spiritual stones.”
“35,000 low grade spiritual stones!”
“40,000!” Following Li Honglin’s sky high valuation, the entire crowed turned silently. Then, that tapered voice snorted coldly and no longer bidded.
Han Weiwei glanced at Wei Suo, and noticed him nodding resolutely. Before that large-chested woman was able to concluded, Han Weiwei called out with cold austerity. “41,000 low grade spiritual stones.”
At this moment from Dong Qingyi’s esteemed patron booth, a gentle ‘oh’ drifted out; as though amazed by Han Weiwei’s offer.
“45,000 low grade spiritual stones!” Li Honglin once again bidded.
“46,000 low grade spiritual stones.” Han Weiwei coldly added another thousand.
Anyway, she didn’t even feel pain for squandering spiritual stones earlier on, now that she was spending Wei Suo’s spiritual stones, she clearly had the impetuous of suppressing the other party. Instantly, Li Honglin became rather sluggish and didn’t dare to bid any longer.
“50,000 low grade spiritual stones.” At this moment, what caused Han Weiwei to learn from Wei Suo and curse ‘your sister’, was Dong Qingyi’s echoing voice from the opposite booth.
Wei Suo’s face instantly sank.
Indeed, after his voice faded, yet another female voice directly called out. “70,000 low grade spiritual stones.”
“Hehe, since it’s like that, I’ll let you have the stone.” It appears that Dong Qingyi no longer had sufficient spiritual stones, as he smirked and relinquished to the female cultivator.
“Do you still want it?” Han Weiwei couldn’t help but ask Wei Suo. Besides, she was aware of how much spiritual stones Wei Suo had on hand. Moreover for this price, she truly felt it was extremely exorbitant.
“Go for it! Unless it exceeds 200,000, buy it!” Wei Suo was exceedingly gloomy. Anything that he had set his eyes on, had been interrupted by bickering wastrels. If he didn’t manage to buy a single thing this time, he would surely feel additionally depressed. Moreover, Wei Suo felt that if he really fought for this Rainbow Stone, the old man would surely be moved till his tears overflowed. Perhaps, he may even work harder to provide him with advantages in life.
“Apart from Nangong Yuqing, which other friend does he have? For him to want this Rainbow Stone, it shouldn’t be that Nangong Yuqing wants it right? Could it be that he is really buying it for her?” This notion welled up in Wei Suo’s mind. However, such a notion had never existed in Han Weiwei’s melon head.
After snobbishly pouting and considering that she had claimed this brat as her brother, Han Weiwei called out angrily, “71,000 low grade spiritual stones.”
After calling out, nobody else in the hall placed further bids. Hence, with the valuation of 71,000 low grade spiritual stones, Wei Suo purchased the Rainbow Stone.
“Let’s go!” After paying for the spirit stone and placing it into his Treasure Receiving Pocket, Wei Suo stood up and muttered to Han Weiwei.
“Wakao, are you afraid that Li Honglin will depart earlier, and you’ll miss out if Nangong Yuqing is really with him, so you wish to wait outside?” Han Weiwei gloomily and firmly glared at Wei Suo. She could roughly guess what Wei Suo was thinking of.
