After Wei Suo thought about it for a moment, he decided to visit the Golden Jade Pavilion to check whether the Golden Jade Pavilion might have any skill techniques that could control demonic beasts with awareness for sale. While doing that, he would also be able to redeem the items that he had pawned and purchase some Cyan Beetle’s demonic pellets. Lastly, he would be able to sell the items that were useless to him.
Items that one had obtained from killing another were safest to sell to a place like the Golden Jade Pavilion. That was because the policy of the Golden Jade Pavilion was that they only cared about the business and transactions, and not the origin of the items. Furthermore, they would absolutely protect the identity of their customers.
Wei Suo could now be considered as a frequent customer of the Golden Jade Pavilion. Practically right after he reached the Golden Jade Pavilion, a flowery uniformed youngster immediately brought him into an honored guest reception room. “Might Senior Wei have come to redeem your items?”
“Other than redeeming my items, I also have items that I am planning to sell to the Golden Jade Pavilion.” said Wei Suo after nodding.
The uniformed youngster seemed to know that Wei Suo would bring a large amount of good items with him everytime he showed up, thus, he did not dare to neglect Wei Suo at all. With an extremely courteous manner, he asked, “May I ask if Senior’s items this time around is also of considerable value? If that is the case, I would immediately go and ask for Shopkeeper Tian.”
Wei Suo smiled, “They should be valuable enough for him to come.”
“Good, I will immediately order someone to bring Senior’s items over and invite Shopkeeper Tian. Senior, please wait a moment.” The uniformed youngster said these words to Wei Suo and then immediately turned around and left.
“Brother Wei, you’ve come to redeem your items already, that’s truly quick. It seemed that your journey had gone without a hitch?” In merely a short moment, Shopkeeper Tian had walked in. Following behind him was a flowery uniformed youngster holding a redwood tray. On the redwood tray was Wei Suo’s Treasure Elemental Jade Case, Jade Cloud Mushrooms and his other pawned items.
“It is all thanks for Shopkeeper Tian’s good fortune.” Wei Suo laughed. “My luck in this journey could be considered as being pretty good, I managed to come back with my life intact.”
Shopkeeper Tian also laughed. “Speaking of it, that Martial Uncle of mine is feeling slightly regretful. He had truly regarded this Treasure Elemental Jade Case of yours to be important. However, Brother Wei would always bring about amazing stuff, what kind of good stuff might Brother Wei have brought for us this time?”
“Allow me to redeem these items first, I had brought a quite a bit of items with me this time.” Wei Suo handed a Spiritual Stone bag to Shopkeeper Tian. “This is five hundred and fifty Mid Quality Spiritual Stones. Shopkeeper Tian, please verify the amount.”
“Very well!” Hearing Wei Suo saying that he had quite a bit of items, Shopkeeper Tian’s eyes immediately shined. He did not bother to speak any superfluous words and directly had the flowery uniformed youngster bring all of the items in the redwood tray to Wei Suo. After that, he had the uniformed youngster count the amount of Spiritual Stones on the Spiritual Stone bag Wei Suo handed over.
“This item is not of much value. However, I did not feel like going to other places to sell it. Shopkeeper Tian, please assist me and casually purchase it too.” After Wei Suo took the Treasure Elemental Jade Case and the other items, he first took out the Cyan Bamboo Winged Serpent raised by the single-eyed cultivator that had been chopped to multiple sections by him.
“Oh?” Shopkeeper Tian took a glance and said, “Although the other portions of this low-level level four demonic beast Cyan Bamboo Winged Serpent might be useless, but its demonic pellet is still in good condition. What do you think about two hundred and twenty Low Quality Spiritual Stones?”
“That would suffice.” Wei Suo nodded. He then took out the purple gowned old daoist’s Dragon and Tiger Crape Myrtle Daoist Robe and handed it to Shopkeeper Tian. This robe’s defense was pretty good, it was capable of blocking the attack of ordinary half Spirit level artifacts. However, the green gowned old man had told Wei Suo that he cannot use it together with the altered robe that he was wearing. Furthermore, Wei Suo believed that if even his robe was pierced through, then his life would likely be lost too. Lastly, this item was something that he obtained from the corpse of the purple gowned old man, it might bring about disaster if he kept it on him. Thus, he decided it was better to sell it.
“Dragon and Tiger Crape Myrtle Daoist Robe, a half Spirit level defensive robe!” Shopkeeper Tian was very knowledgeable of goods. With a single glance, he was able to tell what it is. Immediately, he turned to Wei Suo with a serious expression and asked, “Brother Wei, do you wish for us to help you auction this item? The starting bid would be a thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones.”
“Yes, please auction it for me.” As Wei Suo did not lack any Spiritual Stones and he might be able to purchase some goods in the auction, so he decided why not.
“Shopkeeper Tian, please see if these two items might be able to enter the auction?” Wei Suo took out the short and stout daoist’s black and white eight divinatory trigrams robe and the cyan colored wooden fish he obtained from the corpse of a Divine Sea Stage cultivator.
Wei Suo had also examined the black and white eight divinatory trigrams robe. It was capable of forming a black and white eight divinatory trigrams shield. Its defensive ability was a bit weaker than that of the Dragon and Tiger Crape Myrtle Daoist Robe but it was capable of being used repeatedly. As Wei Suo had many half Spirit level artifacts on him and this cyan colored wooden fish did not appear to be special compared to the other half Spirit level artifacts; its material was a bit lower in quality and easily damaged; lastly, it was also something he obtained from the corpse of an individual that he killed, Wei Suo had decided to sell it for Spiritual Stones.
“This eight divinatory trigrams robe is slightly inferior in quality. However, there’s no problem for it to enter the auction. Its starting bid would be seven hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones. As for this cyan wooden fish, it is a half Spirit level offensive magical treasure. Its starting bid would also be a thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones.” Seeing that Wei Suo had taken out two more good items, Shopkeeper Tian’s expression grew even more serious.
“In that case, how much Spiritual Stones do you think this demonic beast is worth?” Wei Suo extended his hand and took out the Mind Devouring Bug that had its abdomen pierced with two holes by Wen Daoge.
“Level five demonic beast Mind Devouring Bug!” Once they saw the Mind Devouring Bug that Wei Suo took out, Shopkeeper Tian and the uniformed youngster that stood behind him were completely shocked.
“Its condition is pretty good! The entire body of Mind Devouring Bugs can be considered to be treasures. They are extremely difficult to kill and can be used to craft some concealing magical treasures or robes!” Shopkeeper Tian looked to this Mind Devouring Bug that Wei Suo took out and said in a very emotional manner. “The starting bid for this Mind Devouring Bug is at least two thousand Low Quality Spiritual Stones. If there was to be a lot of people from crafting sects participating in the auction, I reckon that the value that it would end up being sold for might be extremely astonishing. Brother Wei, originally, there is going to be a small scale auction in three days time. However, this Mind Devouring Bug, I’m afraid that we might have to wait over a dozen days for the large scale auction hosted by our Golden Jade Pavilion and some other large stores; at that auction, the value that this Mind Devouring Bug could be sold for would be even higher!”
“That’s fine.” The emotional state of Shopkeeper Tian had caused Wei Suo to feel very well. After all, the Golden Jade Pavilion was a place that he could not even afford to set foot in before. After nodding, Wei Suo held two fingers out in a manner like a pretentious prick. “Two bugs.”
“Two bugs?” Shopkeeper Tian was stunned.
With a joker face, Wei Suo took out another ordinary Mind Devouring Bug. As for that advanced Elder Mind Devouring Bug, Wei Suo thought that it might be very useful and had not examined it yet. So he decided to wait for the green gowned old man to recover his vitality and come out of the Ghost Raising Jar before deciding what to do with it.
“Two Mind Devouring Bugs! You actually killed two Mind Devouring Bugs!” Shopkeeper Tian’s eyes were wide open. “So the extremely dangerous thing that you said you’re going to do was to kill these Mind Devouring Bugs. No wonder you asked if I had any White Phosphorus Beast’s bone powder!”
“That’s pretty much it.” Wei Suo laughed mischievously.
“Wahahahaha!” Shopkeeper Tian suddenly laughed out loud.
Wei Suo was a bit flabbergasted by Shopkeeper Tian’s action. “Shopkeeper Tian?”
“Oh, I’m sorry, I had forgotten about my manners.” Shopkeeper Tian coughed in an embarrassing manner. He explained, “Although we are only auctioning these items on behalf of Brother Wei Suo, but Brother Wei Suo, you had given our Golden Jade Pavilion a great honor. These Mind Devouring Bugs are extremely difficult to hunt. They were things that had never shown up in the market for over ten years now. Moreover, our Golden Jade Pavilion is renowned for being abundant in special crafting materials. For there to be two Mind Devourings Bugs at once, the reputation of our Golden Jade Pavilion would definitely increase.”
‘You turned like this from two ordinary Mind Devouring Bugs. If I was to take out the Elder Mind Devouring Bug, then wouldn’t you smile so hard that your mouth might even turn crooked?’ Complacently, Wei Suo thought in his heart. Wei Suo also thought that the Cyan Search Silver that he obtained from the horse-faced cultivator ought to be something amazing too. After all, it had shocked the green gowned old man. He even said something about telling him the details of its effect later on.
“Brother Wei is truly extraordinary.” Before Wei Suo could say anything, Shopkeeper Tian looked to Wei Suo and explained, “I have a proposal, might Brother Wei Suo be interested in accepting it?”
Wei Suo said, “What sort of proposal?”
Shopkeeper Tian said in a serious manner. “If Brother Wei have such amazing stuff again, especially if they were crafting materials, and was willing to present them to our Golden Jade Pavilion first, then during the time of auction, our Golden Jade Pavilion is willing to take thirty percent less expense from you. What does Brother Wei think about it?”
“That is of course doable. After all, Shopkeeper Tian’s business conduct is extremely upright.” Wei Suo’s eyes rolled and then said, “However, I have a request too.”
“What sort of request?”
“I know that before every auction, the large businesses of the auctions would inform some important customers of what goods might appear in the auctions to their important customers. Like that, these customers would not miss out on the auction for items that they want and not waste their time on auctions that they would not be interested in.” Wei Suo looked to Shopkeeper Tian. “Shopkeeper Tian, might you be willing to inform me about these things too in the future?”
“So that’s what you wanted.” Shopkeeper Tian laughed mischievously. “With Brother Wei’s speed in earning Spiritual Stones, I reckon Brother Wei would be among the top in the entire Spirit Peak City. Brother Wei already possessed the qualifications for our Golden Jade Pavilion to inform you about what would appear in the auctions. Brother Wei merely needs to leave his address in the Spirit Peak City to our Golden Jade Pavilion, in the future, I would send people over to your residence to inform you of what might appear in the auctions three days before they occur. Brother Wei could rest assured, our Golden Jade Pavilion’s manner of conduct is always reliable and upright. We would not inform anyone about information regarding you.”
“Very well.” Wei Suo looked to the black Treasure Receiving Pocket in his hand and hesitated for a moment. He originally planned to sell this Treasure Receiving Pocket. After all, his yellow Treasure Receiving Pocket was a bit higher in quality than this black Treasure Receiving Pocket. However, after thinking that this Treasure Receiving Pocket is a rare item, Wei Suo hesitated for a moment and then decided to sell those items first before deciding what to do with the Treasure Receiving Pocket.
“Today, I shall sell these items first.” Wei Suo placed away the black Treasure Receiving Pocket and then said, “Shopkeeper Tian, there is a matter that I wish you to help me in. I wish to purchase a skill technique that could slave demonic beasts through awareness. Might the Golden Jade Pavilion have this sort of skill technique for sale?”
Shopkeeper Tian said. “Our Golden Jade Pavilion does not have that sort of skill technique. However, Ji Ya of the Precious Treasure Pavilion sells more skill techniques. They might possess one such skill technique. Brother Wei, do you wish to go and ask them yourself or do you wish for us to go and ask for you?”
“Please help me ask them.” Once he heard about the Precious Treasure Pavilion, Wei Suo immediately recalled the silver robed perky butted little beauty and started to sweat. He immediately shook his head and said, “However, this matter is a bit urgent. Shopkeeper Tian, please try to find the information quickly.”
Shopkeeper Tian grew silent for a moment. “Since this matter is a bit urgent, how about I announce the news for purchasing such skill technique for you? Like that, if the Treasured Jade Pavilion does not have it, there might be other people that have it and is willing to sell. Merely, I reckon the price would be more expensive this way.”
“As long as we can obtain such a skill technique, it does not matter if the price becomes more expensive.” Wei Suo said. “Furthermore, I need a large amount of Cyan Beetle’s demonic pellets. Might Shopkeeper Tian be able to assist a hand in this matter?”
Shopkeeper Tian was slightly surprised. “A large amount, approximately how many do you need?”
Wei Suo said. “I reckon that I need at least a hundred.”
“A hundred? That would require at least two to three days to collect.” Shopkeeper Tian nodded. “Originally, our Golden Jade Pavilion’s pricing for the Cyan Beetle’s demonic pellet is sixty Low Quality Spiritual Stones each. However, since it’s Brother Wei who sought them and the amount that you sought is this numerous, we will be selling it for fifty five Low Quality Spiritual Stones each. What do you think?”
Wei Suo nodded his head to express that he had no objections to it. Shopkeeper Tian clapped his hands. A uniformed youngster walked in with a tray filled with Spiritual Stones.
There was a total of seven hundred ninety two Mid Quality Spiritual Stones.
Not only did they return all five hundred fifty Mid Quality Spiritual Stones to Wei Suo, they also added two hundred forty two Mid Quality Spiritual Stones to it. Furthermore, this was only the starting bid for all the items that Wei Suo took out to sell. When the auction finishes, Wei Suo might be able to obtain another large amount of Spiritual Stones.
