Chapter 575: Multiplied Profit!
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Jay
“After my Spiritual Force broke through, the illusory space constructed by Thousand Illusions is sufficient to disregard Advanced Force!” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart as he looked at the corpse that fell before his feet, and he was slightly delighted.
“Now, even if I go against Su Li, I won’t be afraid of his Advanced Sword Force!” Duan Ling Tian’s eyes flashed as he thought to himself.
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian turned around and left, leaving behind the surrounding crowd of Void Prying Stage martial artists that looked at Duan Ling Tian with terror.
“This young man looked to be around the age of 25, yet his strength is actually so terrifying!”
“With his natural talent and strength, he ought to not be someone with no reputation in the Darkhan Dynasty.”
The surrounding people whispered in discussion.
“Hmm?” Duan Ling Tian who had just taken a few steps frowned, and then he looked towards the sky as if he noticed something.
After he noticed that no one was high above in the sky, Duan Ling Tian heaved a sigh of relief and continued forward.
After Duan Ling Tian left, a tall figure appeared from behind the clouds and mist high above in the sky.
“This little fellow has such acute intuition… I was actually almost noticed by him!” The tall figure was a middle aged man who had a surprised expression now.
“Even an eighth level Void Prying Stage martial artist that has comprehended Advanced Force died at his hands… Possessing such strength at an age like his is truly difficult to come by.” The middle aged man’s brows raised. “Yet I wonder which one of the young geniuses that possesses the greatest reputation in the Darkhan Dynasty he is.”
A month of time passed by extremely quickly.
During this month, even though Duan Ling Tian had deliberately looked all around for the little gold mouse, yet he returned empty handed.
“Looks like Little Gold didn’t come to Milky Way City.” Dawn, Duan Ling Tian who walked out of the inn shook his head and sighed.
“Now, I can only hope that Little Gold has already returned to the Imperial City of the Darkstone Empire…” Duan Ling Tian walked towards the Treasure Gathering Pavilion as he worried about the little gold mouse.
After he arrived at the Treasure Gathering Pavilion, Duan Ling Tian felt slightly perturbed.
“I wonder if there’s any leads to the Ageless Root.” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and walked into the Treasure Gathering Pavilion.
After he walked into the Treasure Gathering Pavilion, Duan Ling Tian saw the task that hung on the bulletin board in the main hall, and there was even a picture on it that had the Ageless Root drawn upon it.
“Hu!” Duan Ling Tian let of a breath of air, and a wisp of a bitter smile appeared on the corners of his mouth.
He’d come back empty handed in the end.
He knew clearly in his heart that if someone had found the Ageless Root, then his task would have surely been removed long ago.
The task still hanging there meant that during these three months, no one had found the Ageless Root.
“Guest!” In next to no time, an attendant moved over to greet him.
Duan Ling Tian recognized that this attendant was precisely the attendant that brought him to the third floor to issue the task three months ago.
“Bring me to that Senior… I want to remove my reward.” Duan Ling Tian spoke to the attendant via voice transmission.
The attendant nodded and respectfully led the way.
Since three months ago, after he witnessed the might of the spirit sword that Duan Ling Tian placed in the Treasure Gathering Pavilion, he knew that Duan Ling Tian’s identity was extraordinary.
Otherwise, how would he possess such a heaven defying grade four spirit sword!?
At the third level of the Treasure Gathering Pavilion, Duan Ling Tian met that old man once again.
“Senior.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the old man.
“You intend to remove the reward task?” The old man couldn’t help but be stunned when he saw Duan Ling Tian taking out the half of the broken jade ornament.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded. “It’s probably impossible to find the thing I want in a short amount of time… I intend to think of a way in the future.”
Subsequently, Duan Ling Tian saw to his shock that the old man glanced at the nearby attendant, and the attendant left sensibly.
“Senior?” Duan Ling Tian revealed a puzzled expression.
“Young man, our Pavilion Master said that so long as you come to remove the reward task, then I should take you to see him… Please follow me.” The old man left the counter and called out to Duan Ling Tian before walking off.
Duan Ling Tian’s brows raised.
“Could it be because of that grade four spirit sword?” Duan Ling Tian quickly guessed the reason.
When he thought of the reputation of the Treasure Gathering Pavilion, Duan Ling Tian wasn’t worried that the Pavilion Master of the Treasure Gathering Pavilion would do anything to him.
Duan Ling Tian followed behind the old man to head upstairs along the staircase.
“Senior, why does the Pavilion Master want to see me?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
“Young man, I’ll be honest with you… The Pavilion Master wants to see you because he’s interested in the grade four spirit sword you placed in our Treasure Gathering Pavilion.” The old man spoke straightforwardly.
“As expected.” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart before saying. “Senior, if the Pavilion Master is able to find the Ageless Root, I’ll naturally give him the grade four spirit sword.”
The old man shook his head and smiled, but he didn’t say anything.
In next to no time, the old man brought Duan Ling Tian to the fifth floor.
The old man stood outside and spoke respectfully. “Pavilion Master, the guest that placed that grade four spirit sword has arrived.”
“Please come in.” A sonorous voice sounded out.
Although it didn’t contain any Origin Energy, it still caused Duan Ling Tian’s mind to shake.
“What a deep cultivation!” Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted.
“Young man, please enter,” said the old man to Duan Ling Tian. Whereas he himself instead stood at the side like a guardian.
Duan Ling Tian walked in with large strides.
A tall middle aged man in blue clothed stood there like a statue.
Duan Ling Tian’s Spiritual Force stretched out to envelop the middle aged man.
“This…” In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian’s pupils constricted.
He noticed that his Spiritual Force melted into the middle aged man’s body as if it went into a ball of cotton, and had no place to exert force on.
It gave him a mysterious and unfathomable feeling.
“Could it be…” Duan Ling Tian was shocked in his head, and after a thought emerged in his mind, it was difficult to suppress it any longer.
“I’m afraid only a Void Interpretation Stage expert is able to cause my Spiritual Force to lose effect!” Duan Ling Tian gasped secretly.
A Void Interpretation Stage expert!
“You placed that grade four spirit sword in my Treasure Gathering Pavilion?” Right at this moment, the middle aged man turned around, and his stiff face faced Duan Ling Tian as he asked.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
The middle aged man raised his hand, and a spirit sword appeared out of thin air.
Duan Ling Tian was able to discern that this spirit sword was precisely the grade four spirit sword he’d placed in the Treasure Gathering Pavilion.
“I’ll go straight to the point.” The middle aged man looked at Duan Ling Tian and spoke frankly. “I’m rather interested in this spirit sword… But I’m temporarily unable to find the Ageless Root you want.”
Duan Ling Tian frowned.
This Void Interpretation Stage expert wouldn’t be thinking of using might to oppress him and forcefully seize his grade four spirit sword, right?
In next to no time, Duan Ling Tian found out that he’d overthought things.
“How about this… Lend this grade four spirit sword to me for three years. For the sake of making up for your loss, I can refine another ordinary grade four spirit sword for you and another two spirit fruits!” The middle aged man didn’t mince his words.
Lend for three years?
Make up with a grade four spirit sword and two spirit fruits?
“You… You’re a grade four Weapons Craftsman?” Duan Ling Tian reacted to the meaning behind the middle aged man’s words and spoke with slight surprise.
Practically at the instant Duan Ling Tian finished speaking, a strand of blue flames arose in the hand of the middle aged man with a flip of his palm.
The blue colored flames raged and were restless.
It was precisely a grade four Weapon Flame!
The Weapon Flame that was specific to a grade four Weapons Craftsman.
“Yes, I’m a grade four Weapons Craftsman.” The middle aged man nodded.
“So in this way, Pavilion Master wants to borrow my grade four spirit sword to study it?” Duan Ling Tian went straight to the heart of the matter.
He’d guessed the Pavilion Master’s intentions, it was none other than because the grade four spirit sword he placed in the Treasure Gathering Pavilion possessed an amplification of 60%, so the Pavilion Master wanted to study the profundity within it and improve his own level of weapons refinement ability.
“Exactly.” The middle aged man nodded, and then he asked. “Do you agree to my conditions? So long as you agree, I’ll give you the compensation right now….”
“Besides that, during this period of three years, I’ll do my best to help you search for that Ageless Root!”
Needless to say, the conditions of the Treasure Gathering Pavilion’s Pavilion Master was filled with temptation, and it caused Duan Ling Tian to find it difficult to resist.
“Pavilion Master, I want to know what spirit fruit you want to give me?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“Void Reserve Fruit, Spirit Void Fruit.” The Pavilion Master spoke slowly.
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes abruptly lit up when he heard this.
The Void Reserve Fruit was a precious spirit fruit that was able to improve the cultivation of a Void Prying Stage martial artist, and it wasn’t inferior when compared to the Void Refining Fruit he consumed in the past.
As for the Spirit Void Fruit, it was even more shocking.
It was a spirit fruit that Void Initiation Stage martial artists used to improve their cultivation, and there was a possibility that a Void Prying Stage martial artist would explode from the pent up energy if the martial artist forcefully consumed it.
Duan Ling Tian had never consumed both the spirit fruits in the past, and to Duan Ling Tian, they were undoubtedly precious treasures.
“Borrow my grade four spirit sword for three years, and in return, he’ll give me an ordinary grade four spirit sword and two spirit fruits? Besides that, he’ll also help me look for the Ageless Root?” At this moment, Duan Ling Tian exploded out with joy in his heart.
To him, this was an extremely great thing!
If it was only a grade four spirit weapon, and so long as he had the materials, he could refine it at any time.
But that Void Reserve Fruit and Spirit Void Fruit were precious treasures that could only be acquired by luck but not sought after.
“How about it?” With a raise of his hand, two spirit fruits had appeared in the hand of the Pavilion Master.
Besides that, there was also another spirit sword.
“Pavilion Master.” Duan Ling Tian looked at the Pavilion Master. “I agree to your conditions.”
The Pavilion Master was originally slightly perturbed.
After all, although he compensated Duan Ling Tian with a grade four spirit weapon and two spirit fruits.
But as far as he was concerned, the value of a grade four spirit sword that provided an amplification of 60% was far higher than the value of the things he gave Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian’s agreement caused him to heave a sigh of relief.
“Pavilion Master, I’ll trouble you with searching for the Ageless Root.” Duan Ling Tian smiled lightly and then casually put away the grade four spirit sword and spirit fruits that the Pavilion Master passed to him.
“This spirit weapon’s materials are not bad… If I refine it once more, it will similarly be able to possess an amplification of 60%!” Duan Ling Tian thought in his heart.
To him, the grade four spirit sword that the Pavilion Master compensated to him only required him spending two hours of time before it could transform into a spirit weapon that was at the top grade amongst the top grade.
At that time, the value of this spirit sword wouldn’t be inferior to the grade four spirit sword he refined earlier and was in the hands of the Pavilion Master.
It could be said that not only did he not suffer any losses, he even used a short two hours of time to earn two spirit fruits.
Most importantly, with this Pavilion Master of the Darkhan Dynasty’s Milky Way City’s Treasure Gathering Pavilion helping him search for the Ageless Root, the efficiency of the search would undoubtedly increase greatly.
When all was said and done, this time, he’d made a fortune!
