Inside the Northwestern Region’s Thunder Punishment City. The Northwest Sage Emperor Zhou Huo had personally set up a space and caused the time within the space to accelerate five thousand times. To Zhou Hou, maintaining a space with a time acceleration of five thousand times was already a challenge.
He was not the Asura Godking who could easily maintain a space with a time acceleration of ten thousand times.
“Imperial Father, although the two grandmaster artifact craftsmen are extremely amazing in their craftsmanship, it is still extremely hard to tell if they would be capable of crafting a powerful second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. If they were to fail…” Zhou Xian looked to his father.
Zhou Huo shook his head and smiled bitterly.
He had indeed spend a lot of effort just for this son of his. “You can rest assured. We possess a sufficient number of materials and enough Grandmist Spiritual Energy. Logically, the two of them should be capable of crafting second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures.”
“Don’t worry.” Zhou Huo interrupted his son’s words. “If the Grandmist Spiritual Treasures crafted by the two grandmaster artifact craftsmen are of inferior quality and don’t reach the standard that we requested, then I’ll give you my ‘Quaking Thunder Roar’. How about that?”
The Quaking Thunder Roar was a relatively well known second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. It was a powerful Grandmist Spiritual Treasure that Zhou Huo frequently used. It could also be considered as Zhou Huo’s signature Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
“Thank you, Imperial Father.” Zhou Xian was immediately overjoyed.
With what his father had said, Zhou Xian was now at ease. He also knew that his Imperial Father, Zhuo Huo, as one of the clan leaders among the Eight Great Divine Families, had the Clan Protection Spiritual Treasure, the first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure that had been there since the time of the birth of the Divine Realm, as his true weapon.
Because that first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure was too powerful, Zhou Huo rarely used it. Generally, the Quaking Thunder Roar was the weapon that he used. Only during the most important moments would he use the Clan Protection Spiritual Treasure.
“As long as Qin Yu’s gift is not a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure, I will be able to win with this Quaking Thunder Roar.” Thought Zhou Xian in his heart.
The Quaking Thunder Roar could be considered as being a relatively top-notch second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. Even if Qin Yu took out a peak second-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure….
In the end, it was still the Thirteen Godkings who give the judgement. As long as the gaps between the weapons were not too great, Zhou Xian would definitely win.
When the two grandmaster artifact craftsmen Duanmu Feng and Ou Yezi were painstakingly crafting their artifacts, the current Qin Yu was actually quietly resting within the edge of his New Cosmos.
Qin Yu’s frame of mind was growing closer to becoming free of thoughts, his state was becoming more and more perfect.
Just like this, Qin Yu sat there in a cross-legged position. He was enjoying the mellow state of being free of thoughts. At a certain moment, Qin Yu felt that his state had reached the peak.
Although he did not know why, at this moment, Qin Yu had a feeling; he knew… that if he were to craft his artfact now, he would definitely be able to succeed. With this mysterious feeling, Qin Yu opened his eyes. At this moment, Qin Yu had already sat cross-legged for over ten thousand years.
In Qin Yu’s surrounding hundred meters was quietness.
Beyond the hundred meters, it turned into spatial chaos. The space was vibrating unceasingly. This was because this location was the edge of the New Cosmos. This New Cosmos that was created by Qin Yu was still endlessly increasing in range.
Qin Yu stood up. The gown on his upper body instantly disappeared. His upper body had become bare. He extended his hand and the Unyielding Whirling Space Destroying Hammer appeared in his hand.
With a wave of his hand, the black table appeared before him.
“Clone.” Qin Yu said in a low voice. The cyan gowned Qin Yu appeared beside him. The cyan gowned Qin Yu turned to Qin Yu and slightly bowed. “True Body.”
Qin Yu slightly smiled.
After that, the tree trunk of the Ancient Red Tung Tree flew to Qin Yu. Qin Yu pointed at it. That tree trunk with the size of three to four people hugging it to enclose it was immediately split into four pieces. In the center of this tree trunk was a scarlet piece of wood of close to two meters tall and the thickness of an arm. Qin Yu knew that this was the Ancient Red Tung Tree’s most important… Tree Core.
Other than the Tree Core, the best material that the Ancient Red Tung Tree possessed, was the Divine Wood of its trunk. As long as one put forth effort to craft artifacts using the Divine Wood, one would definitely be able to create a High Quality Heavenly Divine Artifact.
At the moment of crafting, Qin Yu had an intensely strong urge… to only use the Tree Core as well as portion of the Divine Wood from the trunk to craft a Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.
A terrifying number of flames were suddenly shot out from Qin Yu’s left hand. The flames were mostly composed of White Pure Flames and Void Flames. To a first-rate material like the Ancient Red Tung Tree, the Black Divine Flames were of no use.
The Tree Core landed on the black table before Qin Yu. The flames surrounded the Tree Core. The two meter long Tree Core appeared like it was on top of a surface of water as it floated above the White Pure Flames and Void Flames.
Holding the Unyielding Whirling Space Destroying Hammer in his hand, Qin Yu hammered down.
A whistling sound echoed. Wherever the Unyielding Whirling Space Destroying Hammer passed, the space started to ripple. Nine spatial vortexes suddenly covered the Tree Core. Qin Yu’s hammer struck down on the center of the Tree Core.
The extremely tough Tree Core cracked after being smashed by Qin Yu’s hammer strike that contained Spatial Energy.
Generally, an expert artifact craftsman would not destroy such a perfect Tree Core. However, Qin Yu was not a mediocre person. From Qin Yu’s point of view, he believed that the reconstruction after destruction was the correct path.
The frequency at which Qin Yu struck his hammer was changing unceasingly. Sometimes, the sound of the hammer was as soft like a gentle wind. At other times, it was as loud and fierce as violent thunder. At this moment, the scarlet colored Tree Core had turned into a scarlet colored liquid. This scarlet colored liquid was unceasingly flowing about.
This was the Tree Core, this was the essence of all the energy that the Ancient Red Tung Tree contained.
“Huhu~~” Eight spatial vortexes had once again been scattered in the surroundings of the Unyielding Whirling Space Destroying Hammer. It completely swept up the scarlet colored liquid. The flames were wrapped up within it.
One could see with one’s naked eyes that within the scarlet colored liquid was a flowing ray of light.
Beads of sweat started to seep out from Qin Yu’s forehead. However, the sweat instantly dissipated. During the process of artifact crafting, Qin Yu would not allow anything to affect his craftsmanship.
“It’s almost there.”
This time, Qin Yu had crafted using an extremely small number of materials. He had merely used the Tree Core as well as two portions of the tree trunk. Although the tree trunk that required three to four people to completely hug it was split into four, Qin Yu only selected two sections to craft with. Although it was only two, their volume was still extremely large. If the two sections were to be combined, then perhaps even two people would be unable to encircle it.
However, its volume after being combined was nevertheless…
“The Artifact Embryo is done.” Qin Yu extended his hand. A scarlet scepter appeared in his hand. This scepter was only two meters long. The handle of the scepter was only two inches thick. Even the tip of the scepter was only the size of a fist.
“Clone, prepare for tempering.”
Qin Yu waved his hand. The scarlet scepter soared into the sky. The cyan gowned Qin Yu who stood to the side started to give off a stream of cyan color air from his body… Coldmist Domian. Within the Coldmist Domain was Golden Elemental Heavy Water and Coldmist Air, drifting about like dragons.
The cyan gowned Qin Yu effortlessly controlled the Coldmist Air and Golden Elemental Heavy Water as they wrapped around the scarlet scepter.
The flexibility and firmness of the scarlet scepter was being continuously increased.
“It’s done.” Qin Yu had a joyous expression on his face. At this moment, the cyan gowned Qin Yu also withdrew his Coldmist Domain. The Tempering this time was on the brink of perfection.
The scarlet scepter flew back to Qin Yu.
“Grandmist Spiritual Energy!” Qin Yu looked to the omnipresent and endless amount of flour paste energy. He extended his hand and did a grabbing motion. A large amount of Grandmist Spiritual Energy started to fly over toward him.
The Grandmist Spiritual Energy directly covered the entire scarlet scepter.
Qin Yu closed his eyes. Rays of light flew out from his hands and landed on the scarlet scepter. In an instant, the scarlet scepter became a lot more dazzling. There was even a jade green colored light circulating through the surface of the scepter.
“Formation array, Universe, Spirit Awaken!”
The dazzling light on the scarlet scepter started to fade. That jade green colored light also started to fade away into the tip of the scarlet scepter.
A smile appeared on Qin Yu’s face. He extended his hand. The scarlet scepter floated over to him. Qin Yu felt extremely good.
“Congratulations, True Body.” Said the cyan gowned Qin Yu as he bowed.
Qin Yu also nodded his head with a slight smile on his face. After that, the clone disappeared. Qin Yu’s gaze was turned to the scarlet scepter. He carefully inspected the scepter.
The entire body of the scepter appeared like that of a scarlet red crystal jade. However, the tip of this scepter was completely jade green in color.
“What level of quality is this scepter?” Although Qin Yu was an artifact craftsman, he was still unable to see what quality a Grandmist Spiritual Treasure was with merely his eyes.
Only through dripping his blood on it and becoming its master, would he be able to clearly sense the Grandmist Spiritual Treasure’s quality.
“I hope that it is a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.” Qin Yu’s heart was filled with anticipation. He immediately dripped a drop of blood on it. The drop of blood landed on the tip of the scepter and, like landing on the surface of the ocean, it was completely absorbed.
Qin Yu immediately understood the functions of the scepter.
“Its attack power is actually at this level?” Qin Yu was overjoyed. “First-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. It is indeed a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.” The might of this scepter had caused even Qin Yu’s heart to beat rapidly.
This scepter was capable of locking up space.
At the same time, the tip of the scepter could shoot out an overwhelming number of branches to trap one’s opponent. Once trapped, even if the opponent knew how to teleport, they would still be incapable of escaping.
Furthermore, this scepter was incomparably tough and durable to begin with. One could totally use it like a club to attack others.
“First-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures are amazing indeed. However, its attack, with only its ability to bind others, is still inferior to my Divine Spear Waning Snow’s Dark and Yellow Energy.” Qin Yu thought of it in his heart.
As he was thinking this, Qin Yu still have a hard to concealed smile on his face.
“Mn, I’ll show this to Uncle Lan and Li’er.” At this moment, the only thing that Qin Yu was thinking of was informing Uncle Lan and Li’er of this happy occasion.
Qin Yu disappeared from the New Cosmos.
Inside the Wood Mansion.
Right after he returned to the Wood Mansion, Qin Yu started to spread out his Spatial Energy. In an instant, he discovered Jiang Lan and Jiang Li.
“Uncle Lan, Li’er, I’ve succeeded.” Qin Yu’s excited voice directly sounded in Jiang Lan and Jiang Li’s minds. And at this moment, the sky suddenly rumbled. The sky that was originally bright and clear had suddenly been covered with red clouds.
“Succeeded?” Jiang Lan was startled. “Could it be that Little Yu?”
With a sweep of his Divine Awareness, Jiang Lan discovered Qin Yu. At the same time, he also took note of the scarlet scepter that Qin Yu held in his hand. With his knowledge and experience, he naturally managed to sense that this scepter was extraordinary.
With a move of his body, Jiang Lan appeared beside Qin Yu. As for Jiang Li, she also quickly ran over with a completely emotional and excited expression on her face.
“Eh, what’s happening?” At this moment, Qin Yu noticed the strange phenomenon in the sky.
The entire sky had turned scarlet. Even the earth of the Divine Realm had turned red from the reflection of the sky. At this moment, practically everyone in the Divine Realm noticed this.
Jiang Lan raised his head and looked to the sky. His eyes then started to shine. He directly turned to Qin Yu and asked. “Little Yu, you’ve managed to craft a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure?”
“Uncle Lan, how did you know that?” Qin Yu asked with a smile.
Jiang Lan started to laugh heartily. “Haha. Only when a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure is born does the Divine Realm’s Heaven and Earth get dyed scarlet and the Spiritual Treasure Lightning would descend.”
“Spiritual Treasure Lightning?” Qin Yu was confused.
Back then, when the Craftsman God Chehou Yuan crafted the first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure for the Asura Godking, the narrative of that was spread through the entire Divine Realm. However, Chehou Yuan himself did not describe it in details. It was as if he did not care about this matter.
Only through knowing Chehou Yuan deeper would one know that his target was the ‘Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure.’ Perhaps only when he managed to successfully craft an ‘Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure’ would he be truly happy.
“It’s a type of Tribulation Lightning. In the entire history of the Divine Realm, it has occurred only once. Its power is not strong at all, you merely need to use the scepter to block it. Although it’s said to be Tribulation Lightning, I think… it can only be considered a sign of the birth of a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure.” Jiang Lan did mind deeply about that Tribulation Lightning at all.
The Heaven and Earth covering scarlet clouds had filled the entire boundless sky.
In the boundless sky, various lightning bolts were shot out toward where Qin Yu stood from various locations. Like dazzling fireworks, they illuminated the entire Divine Realm.
In the end, the countless lightning bolts assembled into one and turned into seven colored lightning. This seven colored lightning struck down upon the Wood Mansion.
“This lightning doesn’t seem to be powerful.” Right when the lightning entered Qin Yu’s spatial area, he immediately sensed that it was not powerful. Casually, he let his scepter soar into the sky.
The seven colored lightning struck on the scepter. The lightning started to shoot out in all directions. Merely, the scepter itself became even more dazzling and was not damaged in the slightest.
“As expected, it cannot be considered Tribulation Lightning.” Qin Yu nodded in his heart.
Qin Yu suddenly recalled a matter. “According to what Uncle Lan said earlier, when the scarlet clouds cover the sky, the Spiritual Treasure Lightning would descend. That was the sign of the birth of a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure. Doesn’t this mean that the entire Divine Realm now knows that I was crafting a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure in the Wood Mansion?”
“Haha… the attractiveness of a first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasure is truly great. Qin Yu, my big brother has come.” Jiang Lan suddenly said to Qin Yu with a smile.
Qin Yu was startled.
“Even that Jiang Xing have come.” Jiang Lan shook his head and lightly laughed. The Floating Snow City’s Three Great Godkings were, at this moment, all going to be gathered in the Wood Mansion.
[TL: The scepter (lit. power stick) in this chapter is different from the scepter (ruyi) that Zhou Xian received before.]
[TL: I should have mentioned this. I have translated all the Tribulation Thunders in the past to Tribulation Lightning. I mean, lightning strikes whereas Thunder is the noise lol.]
