Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Sir and madam, please give me a moment,” the lady who brought Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu here said to them before she parted the red cloths and walked in.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu were the only people left outside.
They waited patiently.
‘They even set up a soundproof Inscription Formation?” Duan Ling Tian extended his Spiritual Energy out. He discovered the big shed made of steel frames and covered with red cloths had a simple Inscription Formation.
It was not difficult for Duan Ling Tian to discover it was an Inscription Formation to soundproof the place.
It was bright in the big shed. One could see many silhouettes busy working here and there.
The lady who had recently parted ways with Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu was stopped by a man as soon as she walked in. The man asked in his deep voice, “Why are you here? Do you not know the rules?”
“Vice manager Zhou Li.” The lady bowed immediately when she saw the man.
The man was one of the vice managers of the Zhou Clan’s auction fair. He was in charge of keeping the auction fair in order and dealing with troublemakers.
“I’m asking you, why are you here at a time like this?” Zhou Li asked impatiently.
“There are two guests here. They want to auction off two items at the auction fair today,” the lady immediately said.
“Oh?” Zhou Li’s eyes lit up when he heard the lady’s words.
At this time, the Zhou Clan’s auction fair would only accept items that were worth being in the finale. Since the lady brought guests with items to auction at this time, it meant that the two items were outstanding.
“Bring me to them,” Zhou Li said to the lady.
“Yes.” Although Zhou Li was not responsible for this part of the auction, the lady did not dare to reject his request. She brought him to them immediately.
Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu who were waiting outside saw the lady come out after a while. A man followed behind her.
“Sir and madam, this is the vice manager of our Zhou Clan’s auction fair, Zhou Li,” the lady introduced Zhou Li to Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu as she looked at them.
At this moment, Zhou Li’s eyes were trained on Feng Tian Wu. He could not take his eyes off her. It was his first time seeing such a beauty.
Zhou Li only looked away when Feng Tian Wu furrowed her beautiful eyebrows. He said with a smile, “I wonder what items both of you are planning to auction off?”
“She didn’t tell you?” Duan Ling Tian asked as he glanced at Zhou Li.
“Hmm?” Zhou Li looked at the lady next to him.
“Vice manager Zhou Li, both of them want to auction off a grade one Spirit Weapon and a grade one Life Recovery Pill. So…”
Before the lady could explain how extraordinary the items were, Zhou Li interrupted her in his deep voice, “Grade one Spirit Weapon? Grade one Life Recovery Pill?” Zhou Li looked at the lady in anger. “Is this your first day working at our Zhou Clan’s auction fair? Don’t you know that the big auction fair that’s only held once every three months don’t accept any items that are not worthy of the finale right before the auction starts?”
“Or do you think a grade one Spirit Weapon and grade one Life Recovery Pill are items worthy of being in our big auction fair that only happens once every three months?” Zhou Li questioned the lady again and again. His tone became more and more impolite as he went on.
A grade one Spirit Weapon and a grade one Life Recovery Pill.
They were considered precious items, but some of the well-known forces in the Inner Land could obtain them as long as they were willing to pay more Origin Stones.
Although it was more difficult to obtain grade one Spirit Weapons than obtaining grade one medicinal pills, it was not impossible to obtain them.
Therefore, these two items were deemed unworthy of being in the Zhou Clan’s big auction fair that was held once every three months.
“Vice manager Zhou Li, the grade one Spirit Weapon they brought is different from the usual ones.” Faced with Zhou Li’s continuous questions, the lady did not have the chance to speak up. Her cheeks flushed.
“Hmph! How different can they be.” Zhou Li scoffed.
“The grade one Spirit Weapon that this sir and madam brought is a grade one Spirit Weapon that grants a 90% boost in power,” the lady explained immediately.
A grade one Spirit Weapon that granted a 90% boost in power?
She had already tested it out?
Zhou Li’s eyes widened a little when he heard the lady’s words. He looked at Duan Ling Tian and Feng Tian Wu immediately, his face that was previously somber had a charming smile.
“Sir and madam, I wonder if I can examine your grade one Spirit Weapon?” Zhou Li asked.
Duan Ling Tian glanced at Zhou Li before he took out the grade one Spirit Sword and passed it to Zhou Li casually.
After obtaining the grade one Spirit Sword, Zhou Li began to test it out.
Eventually, he discovered the grade one Spirit Weapon indeed granted a 90% boost in power!
One must know that the usual grade one Spirit Weapons that gave 87% power boost were considered good, and grade one Spirit Weapons that gave 88% power boost were rare.
A grade one Spirit Weapon with 89% power boost was considered a supreme grade while 90% power boost was the best of the best!
Zhou Li’s breath quickened when he looked at the grade one Spirit Sword carefully.
“Best of the best…”
Zhou Li began to caress the grade one Spirit Sword’s body in his hands. It seemed as though he was caressing a lover instead of a cold object.
Perhaps one would think a grade one Spirit Weapon like this was similar to the regular ones since the boost in strength was a just little more compared to regular grade one Spirit Weapons, but the value of this grade one Spirit Weapon was not entirely reliant on how much of a boost it could give to a martial artist.
A grade one Spirit Weapon that gave 90% power boost was rare.
It was undoubtedly an extremely precious item, especially to some grade one weapons craftsmen.
It might even be possible for one to lure a grade one weapons craftsman into making a hundred grade one Spirit Weapons with this Spirit Weapon that gave a 90% boost in power.
A grade one Spirit Weapon like that was definitely a treasure to grade one weapons craftsmen.
There was a chance they could learn to craft grade one Spirit Weapons that gave a 90% boost if they could study it. If they were successful, their names would spread far and wide on Cloud Continent, and it would be remembered for an eternity.
Grade one weapons craftsmen did not lack anything. The only thing they lacked was a moment to make a mark on history.
They would be able to enjoy the glory, and many would remember them for hundreds and thousands of years at least before they were forgotten. They would have no regrets in their lives.
“You’re vice manager Zhou Li, right? Is my grade one Spirit Sword worthy of being in your Zhou Clan’s auction fair now?” Duan Ling Tian asked as he glanced at Zhou Li.
“Yes, of course!” Zhou Li nodded immediately. He looked at Duan Ling Tian with bright eyes as he asked, “I heard that both of you are also auctioning a grade one Life Recovery Pill? Can you bring it out so I can verify it?” After Zhou Li saw the grade one Spirit Weapon that granted a 90% boost in power, he was eager to have a look at the grade one Life Recovery Pill.
He had a strong feeling that the grade one Life Recovery Pill was just as extraordinary as the grade one Spirit Weapon in his hands. It was unlikely that it was a regular grade one Life Recovery Pill.
“You?” Duan Ling Tian shook his head after he looked at Zhou Li. “It’s better if you get an alchemist to do that.”
“Sir, vice manager Zhou Li is an alchemist,” the lady next to Zhou Li said.
Zhou Li revealed a proud smile on his face.
However, his smile froze soon after due to Duan Ling Tian’s words.
“You’re an alchemist? Which grade?” Duan Ling Tian looked at Zhou Li. He frowned as he said, “We’ll need at least a grade two alchemist to see the Purity of a grade one medicinal pill…”
“Sir, I’m a grade three alchemist. Although I can’t see the Purity of a grade one medicinal pill, I can still get a rough feel of it,” Zhou Li said after he took a deep breath.
“A grade three alchemist?” Duan Ling Tian frowned even harder now. After a while, he said calmly, “Nevermind then, I’ll put up with it.”
Put up with it?
Zhou Li’s lips twitched. He held back the rage rising from within and tried his best to force a smile on his face. “Sir, please show me the medicinal pill so that I can verify it.”
Duan Ling Tian lifted his arm to toss the grade one Life Recovery Pill to Zhou Li.
After grabbing the grade one Life Recovery Pill, Zhou Li began to examine the pill meticulously. His eyes changed from looking lost to shocked. All this happened in a blink of an eye.
“A grade one Life Recovery Pill with more… more than 90% Purity!” Zhou Li exclaimed out loud.
The lady standing next to him was also shocked.
A grade one medicinal pill with more than 90% Purity?
Such grade one medicinal pills really existed?
Although the boost of the Spirit Weapon was significant compared to regular Spirit Weapons, the value of a grade one Spirit Weapon that gave more than a 90% power boost lay more with the grade one weapons craftsmen’s desire to obtain it.
However, a grade one Life Recovery Pill with more than 90% Purity did not only have the same value as the Spirit Weapon that could give a 90% boost. Its medicinal efficacy was a few folds more than regular grade one Life Recovery Pills.
Such grade one medicinal pills could save lives during critical moments!
It could do what a regular grade one Life Recovery Pill could not do.
In terms of value, this grade one Life Recovery Pill with more than 90% Purity was far more valuable than the grade one Spirit Weapon that granted a 90% boost in power.
“Sir, may I know where did you obtain this grade one Life Recovery Pill? Are there more pills?” Zhou Li stared at Duan Ling Tian urgently. A hint of greed flashed in the depth of his eyes.
