This series of events made the atmosphere of the entire auction venue quiet for a while. The old man with white eyebrows had already returned to the lazy look again as if nothing had happened before.
“Eh hem, this mister bid 2.8 million spirit stones for this set of puppet warriors, I wonder if there is anyone who bids higher?” Seeing the incident subsided, the middle-aged man with fair skin quickly continued to host the auction.
“3 million!” The young man in green robe in the box glanced coldly at the old man with white eyebrow on the platform, and he bade again with a gloomy face.
“3.5 million!” The woman in purple clothes in the opposite box didn’t want to back down.
Seeing this, Liu Ming couldn’t help but laugh bitterly in his heart, and he immediately gave up.
If he continued to compete, not only was it meaningless, but the spirit stones on him were not enough.
“I bid 4 million! This set of puppet warriors, I must get it!” The young man in green robe gave a twisted smile and said coldly.
At this time, no one in the entire venue joined the bidding anymore, and they all looked at these two boxes in shock, secretly sighing the amazing financial resources of the two major forces.
“4.5 million!” The woman in purple clothes still said unhurriedly, ignoring the foul language of the young man in green robe.
“5 million!” The young man in green robe stood up and bade an astonishing price with a gloomy voice.
On the other side, the woman in purple clothes nodded slightly as if she was thinking about something. She then sneered and gave up the bid.
In the end, this set of puppet warriors was bid by the young man in green robe for 5 million spirit stones.
After a short pause, the middle-aged man with fair skin gestured toward the dark-skinned man aside.
The dark-skinned man nodded slightly, flipped his hand and took out a delicate brocade box. After opening it, a small ring with black patterns was inside it.
“Anyone who has a wide knowledge must have recognized this object. Yes, the next item is this Sumeru Ring. The storage space in it is five hundred meters in size. It can be regarded as a treasure among storage items. The base price is one million spirit stones. Each bid is fifty thousand.” The middle-aged man with fair skin introduced the auction item and announced the bidding.
As soon as the voice fell, there was a moment of whispering below. Many people were obviously tempted to get this storage ring.
You know, even in the Middle Sky Continent, people were still using storage talisman.
The storage talisman was not only small in space which was usually several ten meters. Items that were slightly bigger couldn’t be stored at all. Besides, the enchantment on it was usually time-limited.
As for the general storage magical weapon or spiritual weapon, either the size was too large or the space was not as large as the storage amulet. Therefore, only a few reputable people or disciples of the sects had one storage equipment with a large space.
For example, the Sumeru Snail that Liu Ming obtained from the Sea Creature Clan only had forty meters storage space, but it was still a rare treasure that could only get by luck.
This small Sumeru Ring had a storage space of fifty meters, so normal cultivators would naturally want to get it.
However, the base price of one million spirit stones had completely eliminated most people’s intention to bid.
Liu Ming looked at the exquisite ring on the high platform with his heart thumping.
During this period of time, he bought a lot of alchemy materials everywhere, and he often felt that storage amulet was a little inconvenient. Each time he had to spend a lot of time sorting out different categories, so the ring in front of him was exactly what he needed.
“1.1 million spirit stones!” After all, there were people with rich financial resources, and soon someone quoted the first price.
The venue gradually became lively as people vied for it. With just a short while, the price had gotten fairly high.
However, these bidders were all the cultivators on the first floor. Few VIPs on the second floor made bids. In their eyes, this item did not seem to be particularly rare.
“1.8 million.” The forging master of Quan Ju Building, Master Zhao bade.
“1.9 million!” In the box on the second floor, the young scholar from the Haoran Academy also joined in.
The two have been contending against each other for quite a while.
“2.1 milllion!” Old Man Zhao’s voice became solemn. The items that he wanted, there were always someone competing with him; he already looked a little unhappy.
“2.2 million!” The young scholar showed a sneer.
Old Man Zhao was silent for a while. At this price, the spirit stones on him were not enough.
“2.25 million!” At this moment, another voice came in.
Old Man Zhao looked over, and he was slightly surprised. The one who bade was Liu Ming in the corner.
“This person is so rich. He spent 1.5 million spirit stones to bid for the spirit essence powder, and he still has the spirit stones to bid now. Is he a disciple of a large sect or a member of a cultivation family?” Old Man Zhao thought in his mind, and he shook his head to quit from the bid.
“2.3 million!” The young scholar saw that someone came to intervene, he gave Liu Ming a cold look and bade again.
When Liu Ming called out the price of 2.5 million yuan, the middle-aged scholar next to the young scholar reached out and stopped him to continue bidding. He said lightly,
“It’s just a mere storage ring. There is no need to spend too much spirit stone. If you can help me to successfully win over the alchemy master for our sect this time, I will let Master Tang personally forge one for you. Even if the capacity is not so large, it is enough for you.”
“Thank you, Master’s Junior!” The young scholar nodded with joy after hearing this.
In fact, he didn’t know in his heart that buying a storage ring with this amount of spirit stone was already a bit worthless, but he was unable to think properly due to anger.
“Since no one is bidding anymore, then this ring will to the mister in green robe.” The middle-aged man with fair skin was already very satisfied with the storage ring sold at this price. He looked around and saw no one was bidding anymore, so he gave Liu Ming a gentle look and announced loudly.
After a while, Liu Ming happily handed over the spirit stones in a side hall. As a result, he only had more than one million spirit stones.
“There should be one item for the finale of the auction right?” Liu Ming kept away the box and asked the servant in green clothes.
“Oh… yes, there is still one last.” This servant was just an ordinary Spirit Apostle Stage cultivator. He didn’t seem to expect Liu Ming to ask questions suddenly, so he replied in a panic.
Liu Ming nodded, then he left the room and walked to the venue.
Needless to say, the last auction item was definitely the real treasure in this auction.
“Could it be that this last treasure is actually…” Recalling the rumors that he had heard in the market earlier, he secretly guessed with his heart moved.
At last, it was the last auction. On the high platform, the middle-aged man with fair skin suddenly changed his previous smiling face into a solemn look, and the middle-aged man with black skin beside him also looked solemn.
Even the old man with white eyebrow of the Real Pellet State in the middle sat up straight at the moment. His expression was extremely solemn.
“The next treasure is the last item of this conference, the real finale item. I believe that everyone present should have heard some information before.” The middle-aged man with fair skin said, and he nodded at the middle-aged man with black skin.
The dark-skinned man sighed lightly, took a step forward, appeared on the high platform, and then slowly waved one hand forward.
A ray of light flashed, and a small wooden frame appeared out of thin air on the auction platform. There was a half-foot-long emerald small blade.
The blade of the small knife was slightly curved. The whole blade was emerald; it was hard to tell what kind of material it was made of. The blade itself was exuding a faint green glow. There were countless tiny runes flowing on the blade. Its golden handle was inlaid with an emerald green jade, which made it look very mysterious.
Even if there was no one using it, the emerald small blade still trembled slightly like a dormant beast. It seemed to be full of spirituality.
Upon closer inspection, there seemed to be red threads coming out from the bottom of the wooden frame, wrapping on the emerald small blade. However, the next moment, the threads were cut off by the glow on the small blade. This process kept repeating, making the small blade unable to break free.
“As you can see, the last auction item is the prototype of a magic weapon that has thirty-six enchantments, Luo Yu Blade. This item is forged by Master Fei of the Thousands Association Chamber of Commerce for five years after collecting countless rare materials. I believe everyone knows the value of it without me saying much.” The middle-aged man with fair skin said slowly.
“This is the prototype of a magic weapon! It’s my first time seeing it!”
“It’s so powerful. I just used Divine Thought to sense it, and it was dispersed before touching the blade. It really is a treasure!”
“If I can get it, tsk tsk, I’m afraid I can even break a superb spiritual weapon into half.”
For a while, everyone was talking excitedly, and from time to time some people gave out surprised exclamations.
Some people, who already knew the inside story, had a fiery red face after seeing the real object; they couldn’t wait to get this blade into their hands.
“Without further ado, let’s start the auction now. The base price is 4 million spirit stones. Each bid is at least ten thousand spirit stones.” The middle-aged man with fair skin glanced around, and he was obviously very satisfied with the reaction of everyone on the spot. He immediately took the opportunity to announce the start of the auction.
At the same time, he waved his hand to cover the emerald small blade with a big red curtain.
This attempt to cover up had aroused dissatisfaction among some people, but no one was saying anything due to the name of the Thousands Association Chamber of Commerce. On the contrary, it aroused the desire of everyone.
“4 million spirit stones!” An unremarkable man in gray robe corner immediately bade.
“4.5 million!” Then another person shouted loudly. He seemed to be a casual cultivator. He gnashed his teeth as if he was putting all his spirit stones in it.
