Chapter 518: Top Grade Amongst The Top Grade
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
After the pile of materials Duan Ling Tian withdrew combined with the few types of materials that Luo Rong had prepared.
The grade four Weapon Flame rose explosively to melt all the materials into liquid and fused them together.
Not only that, under Duan Ling Tian’s urging, the liquid formed from the melted materials fused with the material formed from the two melted spirit swords, and they slowly combined together, attempting to fuse.
But the fusing of these two pools of liquids was obviously slightly difficult.
“How could these possible fuse together…?” Luo Rong frowned when he saw Duan Ling Tian’s actions.
The scene before him was completely going against all the knowledge he had of the Dao of weapons refinement.
According to his knowledge, the Dao of weapons refinement’s biggest taboo was being greedy for success and rushing like this to combine the liquids formed from materials and liquids from existing spirit weapons.
If it was him, and he wanted to advance a grade seven spirit weapon to a grade six spirit weapon.
The first step he would need to do was to melt the grade seven spirit weapon into liquid, then try his best to remove the impurities within it.
Otherwise, it would be almost impossible for the liquids formed from the spirit weapon to fuse with the liquid formed from the materials.
Because the impurities were too many and it would affect the fusing.
However, after a short moment, Luo Rong was dumbstruck.
Because he clearly saw that Duan Ling Tian had really fused the two types of liquids together, and Duan Ling Tian didn’t remove the impurities within the grade five spirit sword beforehand.
“How could this be possible?!” Luo Rong revealed a shocked expression.
The scene before him had completely overturned his knowledge towards the Dao of weapons refinement!
If he didn’t see it with his own eyes, he wouldn’t dare believe that someone was able to do this.
Along with the passage of time, the shock on Luo Rong’s face eased up.
However, Luo Rong’s shock hadn’t even had the time to fade away when his expression flushed red…
Because Duan Ling Tian had already started refining now.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Perhaps it was for the sake of taking care of Luo Rong, Duan Ling Tian intentionally slowed down his peed of refinement.
Extremely profound weapons refinement techniques came easily in Duan Ling Tian’s hands.
But even if Duan Ling Tian intentionally slowed down, Luo Rong still saw things in a blur.
“Miraculous! Miraculous! Too miraculous!” At this moment, Luo Rong was almost able to hear the sounds of his heartbeat.
Such a profound weapons refinement technique was something that he’d never seen or heard of…
He suddenly felt when compared to the weapons refinement technique that this young man possessed, the weapons refinement technique he mastered was simply inferior to trash.
“Looks like the inheritance of the Dao of weapons refinement that this Master has obtained isn’t simple.” Luo Rong thought to himself.
As far as he was concerned, this young man was able to possess such ability in weapons refinement at such a young age was surely because he had a great teacher behind him.
Whereas that great teacher was at least an existence that was a grade three Weapons Craftsman or above!
“Perhaps, the teacher of this Master in the Dao of weapons refinement is from the Foreign Lands.” When he thought up to here, Luo Rong’s heart shook.
The reverence in the depths of his gaze grew…
Time silently flowed by.
Because of having to take care of Luo Rong, Duan Ling Tian intentionally slowed down.
An entire three hours passed before Duan Ling Tian split the liquid that had completely fused perfectly into one and was leaping about on his Weapon Flame into two pools.
One of these pools was extremely small.
“Master wants to refine two grade four spirit swords?” Luo Rong felt himself go slightly numb, it was as if anything that happened in the hands of the young man before him wasn’t worth being surprised about.
Refining two grade four spirit weapons at the same time…
He didn’t know how to describe the young man before him.
Luo Rong’s guess was correct.
Duan Ling Tian was precisely intending to refine two grade four spirit swords at the same time.
One for him and one for the little gold mouse.
With a raise of his hand, the two pools of liquids gradually compressed into form…
His profound weapons crafting technique appeared once more.
One hour later, two sword embryos had shown their preliminary form, and they emitted strands of fierce aura.
That was the sword’s sharp aura!
“The spirit swords haven’t even been completed, yet they’re already extending out such an aura… Looks like the amplification ability of the spirit swords that Master is about to refine is extremely extraordinary.” As a grade six Weapons Craftsman and the Guild Master of the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Weapons Craftsmen Guild, Luo Rong naturally know the reason such phenomenon appeared. “I’m afraid these two grade four spirit swords that Master is refining will be able to amplify strength by at least 59%!”
A grade four spirit sword that could provide an amplification of 59% could be considered to be top grade.
Of course, this top grade was towards grade four spirit swords.
Ordinary grade four spirit swords were at most able to amplify strength by 57% or 58%.
Whereas grade four spirit swords that were at the top grade were instead able to amplify strength by 59%.
Profound weapons refinement techniques came easily in Duan Ling Tian’s hands and continued without end.
His speed grew swifter and swifter!
This caused Luo Rong to be unable to refrain from smiling bitterly.
Now, he was already completely unable to catch a trace of Duan Ling Tian’s weapons refinement technique.
Of course, he knew that Duan Ling Tian had to speed up now.
Otherwise, it would be difficult for the sword embryo to truly take form.
Another hour passed.
The two sword embryos had finally taken form, and the fierce aura that was emitted from them was even more pure.
After the sword embryos were formed, the follow-up refinement became easy.
After an hour, Duan Ling Tian successfully refined two grade four spirit swords.
One was a dark violet colored conventional spirit sword, the other was a dark violet pocket-size spirit sword.
“Little Gold!” With a raise of his hand, Duan Ling Tian tossed the pocket-size spirit sword to Little Gold and smiled. “Try it.”
“Squeak squeak~” When Duan Ling Tian was refining, the little gold mouse didn’t dare make a noise and disturb him, and she was extremely bored since long ago.
Now, when she received the pocket-sized spirit sword, she jumped for joy.
“Squeak!!” The little gold mouse emitted a sharp cry, and a lifelike ancient horned dragon appeared above her and slowly coiled downwards.
“The strength of one ancient horned dragon?” Luo Rong’s pupils constricted.
Never had he imagined that this little gold mouse was actually a seventh level Void Prying Stage demon beast.
It was entirely impossible to discern from only outward appearance.
In the next moment, his pupils that had constricted tightly hadn’t even had the time to ease up when his face was covered in shock.
What had he seen!
In the sky, the ancient mammoth silhouettes that appeared around the ancient horned dragon silhouette grew more and more numerous….
When it arrived at 5,000, it still increased endlessly.
In the end, the number of ancient mammoth silhouettes was fixed at 6,000!
With the strength of one ancient horned dragon as the foundation, an amplification of the strength of 6,000 ancient mammoths?
“6… 60% amplification…” Luo Rong had a dumbstruck expression as he muttered.
He naturally knew clearly what a grade four spirit sword that provided an amplification of 50% meant.
If it was said that a grade four spirit sword that provided an amplification of 59% was top grade amongst grade four spirit swords…
Then a grade four spirit sword that provided an amplification of 60% was top grade amongst top grade!
“Squeak squeak~” After the little gold mouse experienced the might of the grade four spirit sword, her pair of jade green eyes flickered with a sheen of excitement that was difficult to fade after a long time.
“Mmm, not too bad.” Duan Ling Tian nodded and wasn’t too pleasantly surprised.
Refining a grade four spirit sword that could provide a 60% amplification wasn’t surprising to him.
After all, he completely followed according to the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s weapons refinement technique when refining the grade four spirit sword earlier, and it was not much different to Rebirth Martial Emperor himself refining it.
If one were to speak about a difference, then it would be that Duan Ling Tian’s current Weapon Flame was far inferior to the Rebirth Martial Emperor possessed at his peak.
Rebirth Martial Emperor’s Weapon Flame at the peak was a Royal Grade Weapon Flame!
Royal Grade Weapon Flame that was able to refine Royal Grade Spirit Weapons.
“Royal Grade Spirit Weapon… I wonder how much time I must spend before being able to refine it?” Duan Ling Tian sighed to himself.
According to the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, if one wanted to condense a Quasi-Royal Grade Weapon Flame and refine a Quasi-Royal Grade Spirit Weapon, then one’s cultivation must attain the Martial Monarch Stage…
The Martial Monarch Stage was a stage that transcended the Void Transformation Stage.
Whereas if one wanted to condense a Royal Grade Weapon Flame and refine a Royal Grade Spirit Weapon, then one’s cultivation must have attained the Martial Emperor Stage!
“In other words, only after I become a Martial Emperor would I be able to condense a Royal Grade Weapon Flame and refine a Royal Grade Spirit Weapon.” Duan Ling Tian shook his head as he thought in his heart.
By the time he became a Martial Emperor, he didn’t know what year it would be.
“But…” Suddenly, seeming to have recalled something, Duan Ling Tian’s gaze lit up. “When the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s second lifetime underwent rebirth, the great treasure-trove that he originally intended to leave for his third lifetime contains quite a few Royal Grade Spirit Weapons!”
“Once I arrive at the Foreign Lands and follow along the Rebirth Martial Emperor’s memories to take out that great treasure-trove, I’ll be able to obtain a Royal Grade Spirit Weapon!” When he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian felt a wave of excitement.
Royal Grade Spirit Weapon…
The strength amplified by a Royal Grade Spirit Weapon was more than double of the user’s strength!
After all, a grade one spirit weapon was already able to amplify strength by around 90%.
Whereas a Quasi-Royal Grade Spirit Weapon was able to amplify one’s strength by 100%.
“Guild Master Luo, how much did you see clearly earlier?” After Duan Ling Tian put away the other grade four spirit sword, he looked at Luo Rong and asked.
But he quickly noticed that Luo Rong was in a daze.
“Mmm, not bad?” Luo Rong was stunned on the spot, and the corners of his mouth twitched intensely as he recalled what Duan Ling Tian said causally earlier in his mind.
Refining a grade four spirit sword that provided a 60% amplification and could be called top grade amongst the top grade.
It was only not bad?
He even wondered if this young man said this to intentionally anger others.
“Guild Master Luo.” Luo Rong only recovered from his shock after Duan Ling Tian called out a second time, and he said fearfully, “Master, is there something you need?”
Luo Rong was even more respectful when facing Duan Ling Tian after witnessing Duan Ling Tian’s weapons refinement ability with his own two eyes.
“It’s nothing… I just wanted to ask you, how much did you see clearly of my weapons refinement technique from before?” Duan Ling Tian repeated his question.
Luo Rong smiled bitterly when he heard this. “Master, forgive Luo Rong for being slow-witted and was unable to follow your actions.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Luo Rong’s reply was within his expectations.
“How about this… I’ll come here once a month in the future and pass down some weapons refinement techniques to you,” Duan Ling Tian said to Luo Rong.
Since Luo Rong had helped him gather the materials, he would naturally keep his promise and help Luo Rong become a grade five weapons craftsman.
“Thank you, Master!” Luo Rong’s eyes lit up.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian spent an afternoon’s worth of time guiding Luo Rong…
When dusk arrived and when he saw Luo Rong was still pondering deeply, Duan Ling Tian silently left the Weapons Craftsmen Main Guild.
“Little Gold, get ready… Someone has sent himself over to offer sacrifice to your sword.” After Duan Ling Tian passed through a few streets, the corners of his mouth curled into a cold smile.
He’d noticed that the ninth level Void Prying Stage martial artist was following him again.
