“However, for these sorts of technique talismans, they would have a restriction placed upon them by the people from the Heavenly Fate Pavilion when they were sold. The restriction makes it so that only the person who purchased them would be able to see the content within them.” Nangong Yuqing smiled as she looked to Wei Suo. She took one of the Cyan Jade Technique Talismans from Wei Suo’s hand and instilled her True Elemental Energy into it. The Taiji symbol on the Cyan Jade Technique Talisman emitted a cyan light. The light formed a little cyan colored light membrane around the Cyan Jade Technique Talisman as if it was protecting it.
“There’s a barrier?” Depressed, Wei Suo looked at the Cyan Jade Technique Talisman in Nangong Yuqing’s hand. “Is there no way to break the barrier?”
Nangong Yuqing said. “As far as I know, in Spirit Peak City, other than the people from the Heavenly Fate Pavilion, there is no one else capable of breaking this barrier. However, if you were to sell this completely undamaged Cyan Jade Technique Talisman to the Heavenly Fate Pavilion, you would be able to sell it for two Low Quality Spiritual Stones.”
“Fuck, what a scam!” Wei Suo was unable to contain his anger and cursed. A good technique’s price was generally extremely astonishing. For example, the Cyan Water Blade that Wei Suo knew cost twenty Low Quality Spiritual Stones. It was precisely because of the extremely high cost of techniques and the dangers one would experience if they were revealed, that Wei Suo only knew a barely passable single technique, the Cyan Water Blade. However, the Heavenly Fate Pavilion was actually only willing to pay two Low Quality Spiritual Stones to recover the technique. That was practically openly stealing Spiritual Stones.
“What is this one then?” As for the remaining piece of broken cloth, no matter how Wei Suo looked at it, it appeared to be a piece of a map. However, this cloth appeared to be very peculiar. Due to the fact that he was embarrassed earlier, Wei Suo did not dare to randomly guess again. Instead, he directly looked to Nangong Yuqing and asked. If it turned out that this item which appeared to be a map was actually a technique talisman, then he would be even more embarrassed.
However, what happened had almost caused Wei Suo to take a fall to the ground. Nangong Yuqing took a glance at this cloth-like item and said, “This cloth ought to be a map piece of a location in the demonic beast wilderness outside of the Heaven Dome Wall. Merely, I am not familiar with the ancient writings and symbols on it at all.”
‘The fuck, so it is a piece of a map.’
Wei Suo felt speechless in his heart. He felt that he appeared even more oblivious from this and was even more embarrassed. However, to obtain this many good things from Lin Daoyi, Wei Suo was still pretty happily excited.
“There seems to be a few cultivators among the prey of the Icethread Spiders. How about we carefully examine them first and see if there is anything of value.” Wei Suo’s gaze was immediately turned to the cultivator corpse that was hanging on the wall with a faint light emitting from his chest.
Nangong Yuqing and the rest did not have any objections to Wei Suo’s suggestion. After all, when coming to a demonic beast’s’ nest and killing the demonic beasts in the nest, one would generally thoroughly search through it.
Wei Suo was the first one to run to the cultivator that he saw. It was the first time that he killed someone. Thus, he was feeling a bit scared from looking at Lin Daoyi whom he had killed. However, as for the cultivators that were killed by the Icethread Spiders, due to the enticement of Spiritual Stones, Wei Suo was not afraid of them. The spider threads of the Icethread Spiders were extremely tough and durable. Wei Suo reckoned that even if he used Cyan Water Blades, there would still be no guarantee that he would be able to cut through the spider threads. Fortunately, the thread sacks in which the Icethread Spiders hung the corpses and carcasses were not densely packed together. Thus, they did not prevent Wei Suo from carefully searching them.
After carefully prying open the chest area of this cultivator’s clothes that was frozen by the coldness of the spider threads, a bottle of Energy Recovery Medicine rolled out. After that, Wei Suo saw a scarlet colored talisman scroll with a lot of tadpole-like talisman designs. It was a level one Fire Rain Talisman. He also saw a white colored jade case.
The light that Wei Suo saw earlier was precisely emitted from this white colored jade case. However, to Wei Suo’s surprise, the inside of this brilliant white colored jade case that did not have any design on it was empty. There was nothing there at all.
Disappointed, Wei Suo began to search the other locations on this cultivator. However, this cultivator appeared to be even poorer than the Wei Suo from before. Other than these things, he actually had nothing else on him. He didn’t even have a single Low Quality Spiritual Stone.
After spending about an incense stick worth of time, the four people have completely searched the rock cave. Other than this cultivator that Wei Suo had taken note of, there were two more unlucky low level cultivators that were killed by the Icethread Spiders in this cave. However, those two unlucky low level cultivators were either truly poor or they have exhausted all of their items when fighting the Icethread Spiders. Either way, they only managed to find four Low Quality Spiritual Stones, a couple brushes of Moonlight Grass that were worth two Low Quality Spiritual Stones and a technique scroll from the corpses of these two cultivators
In the yellow colored sheepskin technique scroll, there was actually a technique that was even more inferior than Wei Suo’s Cyan Water Blade, the ordinary Wind Blade technique. Wei Suo merely took a glance before placing down the scroll. He did not even have the interest to learn the technique.
The three Icethread Spiders, two Gray Rock Serpents, the things that they managed to find from Lin Daoyi’s body as well as the things they found from the corpses were all gathered together. The following matter was deciding on how to distribute these things.
“How about we evenly distribute these Spiritual Stones first and then sell these items and then evenly distribute them?” Once he thought of the preciousness of these items before him, Wei Suo’s eyes started to shine. After all, merely three Icethread Spiders and two Gray Rock Serpents valued more than two hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones. Adding on the Spiritual Stones, the Energy Recovery Medicines, Energy Recovery Pellets and other items on Lin Daoyi, these items valued more than two hundred sixty Low Quality Spiritual Stones. To ordinary cultivators, two hundred sixty Low Quality Spiritual Stones was a very large amount of money. On top of that, there was the Wind Wall Treasure Talisman that could be used a couple more times. If they were to sell all of these items and then equally distribute the Spiritual Stones, this would be the most impartial method.
However, after hearing what Wei Suo had said, these people who were buzzing with activity when they were raking in the items in the cave had grew a bit silent.
“Evenly distribute?” In a slight daze, Ye Xiaozheng took a glance at Ye Guwei. Finding it a bit unbelievable, he repeated the words ‘evenly distribute.’
‘What’s happening? Could it be that the three of them wants to join hands with each other and snatch my part of the profit?’ Wei Suo became alarmed.
“Had it not been for you, we would all have died to Lin Daoyi’s hands. It is our fault that we cannot tell people apart and almost causing harm to you too. Yet, you still wanted to evenly distribute these items with us. I, Ye Xiaozheng, will definitely have you as a friend! Earlier, you’ve used that many Fireball Talismans. How could we possibly evenly distribute these things among us? I had originally came here with the intention of killing the Icethread Spiders, but I believe that we should, at the very most, only take a single Icethread Spider.” To Wei Suo’s surprise, what Ye Xiaozheng said later on with an extremely earnest manner was this. This had caused Wei Suo to become dumbfounded.
This big fellow was truly simple and honest! So it turns out that he didn’t want to rob me, but instead, he’s only asking for a single Icethread Spider.
A friend like this, it was simply something like, ‘the more there were, the better it would be!’
“I have come here because I have received a commission. We have already come into an agreement for the price of forty Low Quality Spiritual Stones earlier. We from the Iron Policy do not care what is obtained in the end. You merely need to pay me forty Low Quality Spiritual Stones.” While Wei Suo was dumbfounded, Nangong Yuqing looked to Wei Suo and said.
‘They’re all good people!’ Wei Suo was so moved that he was about to cry. He felt that if he was to agree to what they said then he would seem too crazy about money, so he feigned an appearance of hesitation. “This… this… doesn’t seem too good.”
“How about this. Brother Wei Suo, if you truly do not feel this to be fair, then other than us taking an Icethread Spider and Nangong Yuqing’s forty Low Quality Spiritual Stones, we can equally distribute the Icemist Fruit Tree and the Cold Jade. After all, not only can the Icemist Fruit be used with Fire Elemental Demon Pellet to create a Spiritual Pellet, it is also capable of greatly increasing the success rate of breaking through from level five Divine Sea Stage to the Heavenly Circuit Stage.” Ye Xiaozheng nodded and said.
“I…” Wei Suo wished to slap himself. He already knew that Ye Xiaozheng was such a candid person ,yet he still tried to feign being modest and all. Wei Suo felt like crying in his heart. However, he was unable to change what he said. Thus, he could only fake that he valued friendship first and the Spiritual Stones second. Reluctantly, he said. “Okay.”
After he said ‘okay,’ Wei Suo looked to Nangong Yuqing with anticipation and hope. He wished that this extremely hot long legged beauty would say that they, the people from the Iron Policy, would keep their words and would only want forty Low Quality Spiritual Stones and her portion would be given to Wei Suo instead; where if Wei Suo forced to give the portion to her, then she would fall out with him. However, Wei Suo’s eyes were darkened. Nangong Yuqing slightly smiled and said. “If it’s friends… then something that a friend has given, would be fine. It would not be considered as going against the rules of the Iron Policy.”
Wei Suo, Nangong Yuqing, Ye Xiaozheng and Ye Guwei all stood before the Icemist Fruit Tree.
On top of the dark green leaf that looked like bracken leaf were four tangerine sized fruits. Those fruits emitted a jade-like luster and a white colored ice cold mist. This caused this Spiritual Herb tree to appear like it was between clouds and mist.
Perhaps it might be because the three Icethread Spider’s Demon Pellets had not advanced to a certain level yet. Thus, they had only been guarding this Icemist Fruit Tree and never ate its fruits; therefore, it ended up profiting Wei Suo and them.
When one has reached the peak level five Divine Sea Stage and was about to break through to the Heavenly Circuit Stage, one’s True Elemental Energy would smash into one’s body’s orifices. If one’s control was insufficient, it was extremely easy for one’s body’s flow of energy and blood to become too rapid which led to one’s body temperature to rapidly increase. In such a condition, a light injury would be damaging to a cultivator’s body functions, whereas a heavy injury would be a derangement of the cultivator’s mind and the burning of the cultivator’s body.
The Icemist Fruit was not only capable of dispelling the Fire Poison of some Fire Elemental Demon Pellets, it just so happened to have the effect of regulating a cultivator’s energy and blood from becoming too rapid. Before one tried to breakthrough to the Heavenly Circuit Stage, if one was able to eat an Icemist Fruit, then it would become much safer for one to try to make a breakthrough to the Heavenly Circuit Stage.
The Icemist Fruit could not be considered as being a commonly seen item. Oftentimes, it was also something that one would not be able to purchase even if one had the money to do so. When one truly needed it, it was also not that easy for one to find an Icemist Fruit. To be able to obtain an Icemist Fruit now was an extremely good thing to happen to Divine Sea Stage cultivators like Wei Suo.
Apart from this, there was one more thing. That was, the Icemist Fruits all grew on top of Ice Jades. A place that had Icemist Fruits growing meant that there was definitely an Ice Jade there.
An Ice Jade that was both big and high quality could not only be used to create technique talismans and artifacts, it could also be used to create magical treasures!
All that mattered now was to find out exactly how big and what quality the Ice Jade in the mountain wall was.
