“Wind Spirit Eagle? Ice Snow Mantises?”
Inside one of Golden Jade Pavilion’s spacious honored guest reception hall, two flowery uniformed youngsters were respectfully standing before Wei Suo. One of the youngster’s clothes were embroidered with golden borders. It was evident that this youngster’s status was much higher than the other youngsters of the Golden Jade Pavilion. It was the same person who had delivered the Spiritual Stones from the auction house to Precious Treasure Pavilion’s Ji Ya, youngster Liu Xiang.
Seeing the Wind Spirit Eagle and the large amount of Ice Snow Mantises that Wei Suo took out from his Treasure Receiving Pocket, Liu Xiang and the uniformed youngster beside him were both shocked.
“How many Low Quality Spiritual Stones do you think these cost?” While drinking a cup of nice tea, Wei Suo asked.
“This Wind Spirit Eagle’s value is five hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones.” Liu Xiang carefully examined and then said. “Merely, these Ice Snow Mantises, although they appear to be in good condition, they were only painted…”
Wei Suo was embarrassed, he immediately said. “I merely added these paints by convenience, I did not plan to scam you with phony goods. You merely need to offer me the price that they value for.”
“This is not what I meant.” Liu Xiang did not bother to sprout superfluous words. He said, “The Demon Pellets of these Ice Snow Mantises are all still intact. Furthermore, portions of them could still be used to make artifacts. In total, they value for a thousand and six hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones. Senior, is the appraisal to your satisfaction?”
In the Heavenly Profound Continent, generally only the lower level cultivators would call a higher level cultivator ‘Senior.’ This Liu Xiang did not appear to be lower in level than Wei Suo at all. Yet, he had addressed Wei Suo deferentially as Senior. Obviously, he was very professional in his job. According to Wei Suo’s original calculation, if all of these added up could value a thousand and eight hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones, it would’ve already been pretty good. Now that these could sell for two thousand and a hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones, Wei Suo was naturally extremely satisfied. He immediately nodded and said, “Of course.”
After saying this, Wei Suo slightly hesitated for a moment before taking out a transparent gauze-like item that shined with red light. It was precisely the item that caused Han Weiwei to see him as a perverted fiend, the Fire Phoenix Dudou.
“Fire Phoenix Treasured Clothes?” Liu Xiang once again displayed an expression of surprise. “Senior, do you plan to have our Golden Jade Pavilion auction this item for you?”
“No, that is not my intention.” Wei Suo coughed and then said in a slightly embarrassed manner. “I have merely heard that your Golden Jade Pavilion have a Senior Zhang who is an artifact craftsman who is capable of crafting artifacts for others. I wish to add a layer of clothing outside of this Fire Phoenix Dudou without affecting the efficacy of it. Do you think that is possible?”
“Do you wish to double layer this Fire Phoenix Treasured Clothes?” Liu Xiang was extremely professional and did not burst out laughing. Instead, he nodded in understanding. “I do not believe this would be hard to accomplish. Merely, what kind of material do you wish to add to the clothing outside? Is there any special request?”
“As long as the material is capable of increasing the defensive ability and not easily cut apart or display the Fire Phoenix Dudou within it. As for the rest, just make it more simple. It would be best if others would think that it’s a poor quality item without much defensive ability.” Wei Suo said.
‘This guy…’ Once Wei Suo said these words, even Liu Xiang who was extremely professional became speechless. Finding the female item, Fire Phoenix Treasured Clothes to be embarrassing to wear and wanting to put another layer on it was already extremely vulgar. Furthermore, when others wanted to make robes and such, they would always want to make it as gorgeous as possible. Yet, this guy wanted to make it as poor quality looking as possible. Wasn’t this truly too secretive?
However, Liu Xiang still nodded right away. “That, we can do. Our Golden Jade Pavilion just happened to have a lot of Black Wind Mulberry Thread. It would not affect the defensive power of the Fire Phoenix Treasured Clothes. Furthermore, it would also be able to send forth strong wind, increasing the defensive ability of the clothes. After the clothes is made, we merely need to add a layer of ordinary cyan colored clothes. Like that, it would appear very similar to the outfit you’re currently wearing. As for the price, it’ll cost about three hundred fifty Low Quality Spiritual Stones. Do you think this would do?”
“Of course.” Wei Suo nodded. He then asked, “How many Cyan Beetle’s Demon Pellets does your store have right now and how much do each of them cost?”
“Cyan Beetle Demon Pellet? We have a total of fifteen right now. Each of them cost sixty Low Quality Spiritual Stones.”
“Good, in that case I’m buying all fifteen of them.”
“This person appeared to be only an ordinary low level cultivator. How come he would bring over such high quality goods so frequently? According to his speed at earning Spiritual Stones, even the Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivators cannot compare to him.” By the entrance of the Golden Jade Pavilion, looking at Wei Suo’s back view, the other uniformed youngster who had been standing respectfully beside Liu Xiang spoke. “Furthermore, why would he purchase this many Cyan Beetle’s Demon Pellets at once? Could there be something fishy about this man?”
“Do not forget about the rules of our Golden Jade Pavilion. No matter how fishy he is, he is still a valued guest of our Golden Jade Pavilion. He is not someone that we should presumptuously speculate and investigate.” After taking a glance at the uniformed youngster beside him, Liu Xiang said in a slightly ice-cold manner. “Furthermore, it goes without saying that there are talented individuals in hiding amongst the cultivators. It is not certain that all low level cultivators would be inferior to high level cultivators. For some cultivators, they possess some secret techniques. If what you said earlier was heard by him, you would definitely cause him to be unhappy and might incur his wrath. From now on, you must remember these things.”
“I got it.” The uniformed youngster beside Liu Xiang’s expression immediately grew stern and nodded.
“Fucking hell, I’m so poor!”
After walking some distance away from the Golden Jade Pavilion, Wei Suo shook his head depressedly as he instilled True Elemental Energy into a Transmission Jade Talisman that he held.
The Wind Spirit Eagle and the Ice Snow Mantises sold for a total of two thousand and a hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones. Splitting it equally with Nangong Yuqing, Wei Suo was able to make a thousand and fifty Low Quality Spiritual Stones. Adding on the seven hundred plus Low Quality Spiritual Stones that he originally had, Wei Suo would originally have about a thousand and eight hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones. However, altering the Fire Phoenix Dudou and purchasing fifteen Cyan Beetle’s Demon Pellets cost him a total of a thousand two hundred and fifty Low Quality Spiritual Stones.
Thus, Wei Suo only had about five hundred and fifty Low Quality Spiritual Stones left on him.
Although Wei Suo also had items that valued considerably with him, for example the Jade Cloud Mushroom, the White Jade Case that he tested to indeed be a Treasure Elemental Jade Case and so on. However, the green gowned old man assured him that these items would be useful in the future. Thus, Wei Suo couldn’t sell them.
Five hundred and fifty Low Quality Spiritual Stones. To ordinary level four Divine Sea Stage cultivators, this was already an astonishing sum. However, the more experienced a person was, especially Wei Suo who had experienced the previous auction, the more knowledge they would have as to the gap between them and those powerful cultivators. In turn, they would start to feel more of how poor they actually were.
Currently, Wei Suo needed to buy a lot of things.
After the Fire Phoenix Dudou had been altered by the Golden Jade Pavilion, if its defensive might was truly like what Liu Xiang had said, it would be approaching the defense of a true Spirit level Low Quality Magical Treasure. It would be able to defend against level four Heavenly Circuit Stage skill techniques. To Wei Suo, this amount of defense would be sufficient for a very long time.
The might of the Golden Serpent Thunder Technique was not bad. Furthermore, the lightnings were capable of paralysis. To Wei Suo, this skill technique was reluctantly enough for Wei Suo’s incoming future.
In terms of attack power, the Cyan Water Blade’s might had become completely insufficient. He could only improvise with the Fireball Talismans and other technique talismans. However, if he was to use level two of higher technique talismans to fight, the expense would be truly great.
Thus, Wei Suo must definitely find a more powerful offensive skill technique.
For certain places, Wei Suo would not be able to get there by merely running with his legs. However, Wei Suo also did not have any flying artifacts or Magical Treasures. There was no need to mention about offensive Imitation Magical Treasures or real Magical Treasures.
To buy all the items that Wei Suo believed that he would need in the incoming future, not only would five hundred fifty Low Quality Spiritual Stones not be enough, likely not even fifty thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones would be enough.
Furthermore, Wei Suo would also have to prepare for the materials to concoct the Heaven Mending Pellets. According to what the green gowned old man said, the Heaven Mending Pellets were also consumables like the Spiritual Stones. If Wei Suo was to train with Heaven Mending Pellets nonstop, it would also be an enormous amount of sum.
“What are you looking at?”
From a far away distance, Nangong Yuqing already saw Wei Suo who stood at the northern city district’s bulletin board. Originally, when she saw Wei Suo, she felt a slight warmth in her heart. That was because she was able to guess the reason why Wei Suo sought for her. After all, in this age, there were not many people who valued anything more than a pile of cold Spiritual Stones. However, after walking closer and seeing Wei Suo’s appearance, Nangong Yuqing became a bit depressed and scolded at him. That was because Wei Suo, who did not notice her, was obviously sneaking a peak at a red clothed female cultivator with a set of large boobies.
“Ah? I’m not looking at anything. When did you arrive? How did I miss you?” Wei Suo’s face grew slightly red. He displayed an expression as if he didn’t do anything and rapidly took out a leather bag. “I’ve sold the items. They sold for a total of two thousand and a hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones. There was a total of two hundred and ten Mid Quality Spiritual Stones here. I’ve taken a hundred and five Mid Quality Spiritual Stones. Please count it and see if the amount is correct.”
“In the next two days, I would not be in Spirit Peak City. If you need anything, you would have to wait till after the two days to find me. Even if you use the Transmission Jade Talisman, I reckon I would not be able to see it.” Nangong Yuqing stared at Wei Suo. Without even checking the amount, she put away the leather bag she received from Wei Suo.
“You won’t be in Spirit Peak City for two days?” Wei Suo was slightly startled. “What are you going to do?”
“Someone from our Iron Policy have discovered the tracks of a Mind Devouring Bug. Merely, a sufficient amount of White Phosphorus Beast’s bone powder was required to deal with the Mind Devouring Bug. For these two days, we need to go and hunt a sufficient amount of White Phosphorus Beasts first.”Nangong Yuqing looked to Wei Suo and said.
“Mind Devouring Bug! Level five demonic beast?!” Wei Suo heaved a breath of cold air.
Mind Devouring Bugs were renowned in the Heavenly Profound Continent. Not only could this large silkworm like demonic beast send forth cyan-yellow colored light rings with astonishing attacks, it was also capable of turning itself invisible for a long period of time. Furthermore, it was capable of extending a sharp cone-like tube from its mouth. The thing that it loved to do the most was to stealthily approach cultivators and then pierce through their Heavenly Spirit, turning their brains into appetizing desserts.
Only the bone powder of White Phosphorus Beast was capable of changing the color of its skin, causing it to show its true form and unable to maintain invisibility anymore. As for the White Phosphorus Beasts, they were level four demonic beasts themselves. For ordinary cultivators, they would simply not carry something like White Phosphorus Beast’s bone powder on them. Thus, even if they were not ambushed by a Mind Devouring Bug, for powerful cultivators below level two Heavenly Circuit Stage, they would still end up dying should they encounter a Mind Devouring Bug.
“Isn’t that a bit too dangerous?” After heaving a breath of cold air, Wei Suo said to Nangong Yuqing.
“We have made our preparations. There shouldn’t be any problem.” Seeing that Wei Suo was worried about her, Nangong Yuqing’s heart grew slightly warm. She nodded and said.
After thinking about it, Wei Suo agreed to what Nangong Yuqing had said. After all, the Iron Policy was one of the major powers in Spirit Peak City. It was not something that a little cultivator like himself could compare with. Thus, after he nodded, Wei Suo took out two Illusion Light Talismans and gave them to Nangong Yuqing. “For you.”
“What are these?”
“They’re Illusion Light Talismans. Try not to use them if you can, it’s very troublesome to make them. Furthermore, if you use it too much and others were to find out about it, it would not be effective anymore.” Wei Suo explained. “Those two Illusion Light Talismans, one of them is capable of creating thirty Ice Snow Mantises. As for the other one, it can create a Wind Spirit Eagle. However, the demonic beasts they create are naturally all fake. Their only use is in cheating others.”
Nangong Yuqing’s mouth moved slightly. However, she did not say anything and accepted the two Illusion Light Talismans.
“I’ll give you some Fireball Talismans too.” Wei Suo was originally a total miser. However, for some unknown reason,even though Nangong Yuqing was only going with the people from the Iron Policy to hunt demonic beasts, when Nangong Yuqing was planning to leave, Wei Suo was suddenly unable to contain himself and took out a bunch of Fireball Talismans and stuffed them into her hand.
