“Sister, what exactly is the things that Brother Wei forcibly gave us?”
In the mountain belly with a couple Conveying Arrays located closest to the Cyan Wind Mound, Ye Xiaozheng turned his head around and asked Ye Guwei beside him.
Since Ye Xiaozheng and Ye Guwei was originally going to have to take the Conveying Arrays at this location to transfer to their destination, thus after this matter was settled, they directly separated with Wei Suo.
Before they bid their farewell with each other, they hugged again as usual. After hugging, Wei Suo forcibly gave Ye Guwei two Transmission Jade Talismans and a black leather bag to Ye Guwei and informed them that if they need his help, then they merely need to go to Spirit Peak City and use the Transmission Jade Talisman. Wei Suo even said that this Transmission Jade Talisman was truly inferior in quality and that he would definitely purchase something like a thousand mile Voice Transmission Stone. He also mentioned that since he had used one of their Spirit Mist Pearl and a Concealing Talisman, he is going to gift them the items in the leather bag and urged them to accept it.
At the beginning, Ye Xiaozheng naturally refused to accept the leather bag no matter what. After that, Wei Suo directly grabbed Ye Guwei’s hand and placed the leather bag in her fair skinned hand and said that if they refused to accept it, then they would not be considering him as a friend. After that, he directly entered into the Conveying Array.
“Trying to pick up girls with that miser appearance? What he gave is definitely nothing good.”
Ye Xiaozheng and Ye Guwei had reluctant expressions as they watched Wei Suo disappear into the Conveying Array. However, the Heaven’s First Sect disciple that was in charge of guarding this place was looking at the black leather bag Wei Suo placed in Ye Guwei’s hand with extreme disdain.
From his point of view: ‘Wearing dull and lousy looking cyan rag-like clothes, one can tell with a single glance that he’s a poverty-stricken low level cultivator. He’s actually shameless enough to tell her to go and find him if they were to go to Spirit Peak City in the future. Even if he wanted to woo this gentle and quiet beauty, even if a toad wanted to eat the meat of a swan, you’d at the very least need to show some sincerity. Look at that black leather bag in that beauty’s hand. It’s that shriveled looking. Even if it contained Spiritual Stones, there wouldn’t be much in it either.’
Right at the moment when this Heaven’s First Sect’s disciple was despising Wei Suo in his heart, Ye Guwei curiously opened the black leather bag and took out the things within it to see what exactly it wasthat Wei Suo had given them.
“Are you kidding?!”
Once Ye Guwei took out the contents of the black leather bag, this Heaven’s First Sect’s disciple’s eyes instantly bulged wide like a toad that was being stepped on.
Spiritual Stones. It was exactly as this Heaven’s First Sect’s disciple had thought, the amount of Spiritual Stones in the shriveled black leather bag was not a lot, merely twenty.
However, these twenty Spiritual Stones were all sparkling, translucent and pure, they were all milky-white in color, they were all High Quality Spiritual Stones!
A single High Quality Spiritual Stone was equivalent to a hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones. Twenty High Quality Spiritual Stones, that was equal to two thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones!
Two thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones, oh how many days this Heaven’s First Sect’s disciple would have to guard the Conveying Array to earn that amount of Spiritual Stones.
Both Ye Xiaozheng and Ye Guwei were stunned. The value of this leather bag that Wei Suo forcibly gave to them was truly too high for them.
Other than twenty High Quality Spiritual Stones, there were also twenty two Fireball Talismans, a Golden Daoist Book and a one foot-long yellow-jade hatchet.
The True Elemental Martial Technique recorded in the Golden Daoist Book was called the Golden Stream Pellet Technique. It was surprisingly a high-level Profound level Martial Technique. As for the little hatchet with bestial characters carved on it and had the ancient characters that read ‘Mountain Opener’, was a half Spirit level artifact that could be used repeatedly.
These two items, even if Ye Xiaozheng and Ye Guwei did not find a use for them, they would still value more than two thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones if they were to be auctioned off.
“What exactly is that guy? This, this is truly too crazy!”
At the time when Ye Xiaozheng and Ye Guwei placed these items away with great astonishment, the Heaven’s FIrst Sect’s disciple who managed to take a glance at that little hatchet that emitted a yellow light was stunned once again.
At the time when this Heaven’s First Sect’s disciple was thinking that Wei Suo was crazy, Wei Suo had already returned to the Spirit Peak City.
Wei Suo did not wish to involve himself with the matters of the Iron Policy too deeply. To him, the higher his martial prowess was, the more secure his life would be. Thus, the most important matter for him was to concoct more Heaven Mending Pellets to advance his martial technique and strength. Moreover, Wei Suo was extremely excited that there was a large amount of good items waiting for him to check out.
Thus, Wei Suo did not rush to the Golden Jade Pavilion after his return. Instead, he went straight for his Earth quality residence in the northern city district. He had also casually turned to the largest bulletin board at the city’s northern district and gave the low level cultivator who was holding up a sign for him five Low Quality Spiritual Stones.
Perhaps it might be because he also started out as an extremely poor low level cultivator, although Wei Suo was still a miser who hated to recklessly spend his Spiritual Stones, he had grew a bit of empathy for this sort of low level cultivator. Thus, he tried his best to not covet the five Low Quality Spiritual Stones he promised that low level cultivator.
Once he returned to his Earth quality residence, Wei Suo immediately ran into the private room that had a mat knitted from Silverthread Grass. After that, he impatiently took out all of the items from the black Treasure Receiving Pocket.
“That crazy fellow’s machete is truly good.”
The first thing Wei Suo picked up from the pile of items was Three Round Liu’s conspicuous machete. He then began to examine it in a loving manner. This machete was both an offensive and a defensive item. Its defensive ability was Spirit level whereas its offensive ability was half Spirit level. Thus, this machete was at least a Spirit level artifact. The matter that Wei Suo admired the most was that this machete appeared like Magical Treasures that had formation arrays embedded within them. There was not a trace of talisman signs or symbols on the surface of this machete. From a glance, it appeared like an extremely common machete.
In that manner, when this machete is used, it would likely cause his opponent to look down on it and then instantly scare them with its might. To Wei Suo who didn’t care about the appearance of his equipment and only cared about their functions and insidiousness, this was simply a truly great weapon. Furthermore, as the formation arrays seemed to be embedded inside the machete, this machete’s astonishing defense seemed to originate from the essence metal that it was made from. From how the Dark Demon Blade only managed to create a shallow scratch on the surface of this machete, it seemed that this machete could take on several tens if not hundreds of strikes from a Spirit level artifact.
“Fuck, this broke ass, does he not have anything good other than this machete?”
Wei Suo first inspected the possessions of Three Rounds Liu. From Three Rounds Liu’s possessions, he managed to discover a Spiritual Stone bag that contained about a thousand five hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones worth of Spiritual Stones. Originally, this amount of Spiritual Stones was already pretty numerous. However, when Wei Suo compared this amount of Spiritual Stones with the amount he found from the possessions of the guys before Three Rounds Liu, Wei Suo felt that this Three Rounds Liu was rather poor.
Other than the Spiritual Stones, Three Rounds Liu had some ordinary technique talismans and Energy Recovery Pellet. There was also a copper-green colored little flat bell.
After Wei Suo instilled True Elemental Energy into this cyan colored little flat bell, Wei Suo’s mood instantly turned cheerful. That was because the cyan light emitted by this one foot-long cyan colored little flat bell created a cyan colored light cover around him. Wei Suo remembered clearly that the cyan colored light cover cast by Three Rounds Liu had managed to block one of his Dark Demon Blade’s attacks. Only after the second recasting of the Dark Demon Blade did Wei Suo manage to break through the cyan light cover and finish off that crazy cultivator Three Rounds Liu.
After inspecting Three Rounds Liu’s items, Wei Suo began to carefully inspect Wen Daoge’s possessions. He even held back his disgust and took out the two red colored bracelets that had been shot into that Mind Devouring Bug’s abdomen.
Wen Daoge was the boss of this group of people. His martial prowess was the highest. The items he had on him had also brought Wei Suo a pleasant surprise.
The yellow colored beak-like artifact of his was crafted using essence metals. The Spiritual Energy within it had completely dissipated. Numerous fine holes had appeared on it. The beak-like artifact was already completely damaged. However, the red bracelets he took out from the abdomen of the Mind Devouring Bug was completely undamaged.
This pair of red bracelets seemed to be made out from something like red coral. Fine talisman marks and symbols that appeared like red roses were carved on the bracelets. The two bracelets were extremely beautiful. Judging from their color, they seemed to be fire elemental Magical Treasures. However, when holding them, they gave off a thick water elemental energy. Thus, the two bracelets ought to be a pair of water elemental Magical Treasures. Judging from their power of piercing through the abdomen of the Mind Devouring Bug with a single strike, this pair of red bracelets were, at the very least, as powerful as half Spirit level artifacts.
Due to the fact that he had a lot of items on him, Wei Suo was unable to have the time to determine exactly how powerful this pair of bracelets was. He had even decided to purchase a Thousand Refinement Silver when he returned to the Golden Jade Pavilion to redeem his pawned items.
The Thousand Refinement Silvers were a type of Essence Metal used to specially test Magical Treasures under Path level. They were especially tough, durable yet soft. When a Magical Treasure attacked it, it would not damage the Magical Treasure itself. However, one could determine the might of the Magical Treasure based on how deep the Thousand Refinement Silver was cut by the Magical Treasure.
Wei Suo placed this pair of red bracelets on his wrists, tried it out and was immediately stunned. Not only was the casting speed of this pair of red bracelets extremely fast, they would practically shoot out right at the same moment when True Elemental Energy was instilled into them, their speed in the air was also extremely fast, they were so fast that it appeared like teleportation and was clearly faster than the short and stout daoist’s golden short spear. Furthermore, the pair of bracelets was not a set of Magical Treasures that must be used simultaneously, one could cast them by themselves.
After testing them out several more times, Wei Suo discovered that this pair of red bracelets were only capable of flying out about a hundred feet distance before they would automatically fly back.
The range of these two bracelets were only a hundred feet. However, their activation speed and flying speed were extremely fast. It was evident that this pair of red bracelets was a pair of close range assassination weapons.
No wonder that Mind Devouring Bug had already pierced Wen Daoge’s mind but, before it could suck on it, was instantly shot flying by Wen Daoge’s bracelets.
Wen Daoge did not have any Treasure Receiving Pocket on him. However, his Spiritual Stone bag was outstanding as expected. There was a total of over fifty High Quality Spiritual Stones, an equivalent to over five thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones. Furthermore, there was a shield created from an unknown demonic beast’s bones. From its appearance, it seemed that the might of this shield would be no weaker than the Black Turtle Shield. This could at least compensate for Wei Suo’s loss of his two Black Turtle Shields.
The thing that had pleasantly surprised Wei Suo the most was Wen Daoge’s flying Magical Treasure, the white jade crane. Although it was burned and damaged by the Dark Phosphorous Bone Sword, had a lot of black spots and bumps, and appeared more like a roast duck than a jade crane, the amount of Spiritual Energy on it was not greatly lost. After Wei Suo instilled his True Elemental Energy into it, the ‘roast duck’ suddenly and rapidly grew bigger into a big roast duck!
