After the young woman in black clothes watched Liu Ming leave with a smile, she turned around and returned to the shop, and the shopkeeper in black clothes had already been waiting by the side respectfully.
“This person has already agreed that all cold condensing pills will be sold to us in the future. These are some materials he needs. You ask someone to collect them as soon as possible.” The young woman in black clothes took out the jade slip and gave it to the shopkeeper in black clothes, and she instructed him simultaneously.
“Congratulations, madam. This person can refine pills for our Bat Clan, then we don’t have to worry about having not enough Condensation Period elixirs that enhance spiritual power and help in breaking through. I will execute madam’s order now.” The man in black clothes took the jade slip and replied respectfully, then he retreated with joy.
The young woman in black clothes waited for the man in black clothes to leave, and she turned into a wisp of black mist and disappeared after hesitating for a while.
After Liu Ming bought some auxiliary materials in the market, he returned to the Bai Lian Pavilion and cultivated behind closed-doors.
After more than half a month, the green condensing fruits in his hand were finished. He once again refined another 70 cold condensing pills. Unexpectedly, half of them were flawless grade elixirs, but there wasn’t any earth grade elixir with more than five elixir patterns.
After Liu Ming packed all the elixir into several boxes, he paced back and forth in the secret room subconsciously.
Every time he took a few steps, he stopped, touched his chin, showing a thoughtful appearance, then he took a few steps and stopped to think.
Liu Ming now had the last material spirit essence powder to forge the Nine Skull Shield, but he couldn’t forge it now.
This superb spiritual weapon which was close to the prototype of a magic weapon, he naturally would not allow another forge master to forge it. To avoid causing more trouble, he could only refine the last enchantment himself.
After thinking about it, he decided to practice the method of increasing spiritual weapon enchantment.
After all, this method had long been documented in “Flame Cultivation Scripture”, as long as he was familiar with it, he should be able to learn it.
In the next few days, Liu Ming started to be busy in the market.
In addition to selling a few cold condensing pills at the Bat Clan store to exchange for hundreds of thousands of spirit stones, he also bought several classics related to the prototype of magic weapons in other stores, and he also purchased a few inferior grade spiritual weapons. After doing all that, he returned to the Bai Lian Pavilion with satisfaction.
In a forging room in the backyard of Bai Lian Pavilion, Liu Ming was talking with two forgers in the pavilion.
“Master Li, Master Hua, I have a few ordinary inferior grade spiritual weapons. Although they are not powerful, it is a pity to discard them. So I want to refine them, hoping to add a few enchantments. Can two masters give me some advice?” Liu Ming asked the two forgers seemingly casually.
“If Envoy Liu wants to add several enchantments to the inferior grade spiritual weapons, it is not difficult. You only need to collect some basic forging materials and some materials related to the additional attributes required by spiritual weapons, then you can refine them together. Of course, the level of heat and the timing aren’t easy to master.” Master Hua, who was in his thirties and looked a little thin, said.
“Then if it is an upper grade spiritual weapon or a superb spiritual weapon, how do I add an enchantment to it?” Liu Ming looked curious and continued to ask.
“For upper grade spiritual weapon and superb spiritual weapon, it is basically the same as refining inferior grade spiritual weapon. They also require materials with additional attributes and some auxiliary materials to refine. As for specific auxiliary materials needed, it depends on the situation. Generally, there are related classics for reference. Besides, refining additional enchantment in the superb spiritual weapon still needs some rare spiritual materials. But even if all the materials are collected, the difficulty of refining is a lot higher than refining inferior grade spiritual weapon. I have been forging weapons for thirty years, but I can’t guarantee successfully refining in one attempt. If the refining process fails, it will even damage the spirituality of the weapon. The number of enchantments is generally fixed when the spiritual weapon is forged. The risk of refining again is still high. The higher the enchantments, the harder it is to succeed.” Another muscular middle-aged man spoke to Liu Ming without thinking.
After hearing this, the young man surnamed Hua also nodded again and again.
“Thank you for the guidance. In this case, I will occupy a forging room and give it a try first.” Liu Ming asked with a smile upon hearing this.
“Forging room generally has two spares. Sir Envoy can choose one to use at will.” The man surnamed Hua said, but his eyes flashed with surprise.
Master Li on the side also revealed a hint of unnoticeable astonishment on his face after listening.
After all, he originally thought Envoy Liu was asking them to add enchantments on his spiritual weapon, but he never expected him to refine himself.
Liu Ming nodded in satisfaction, walked into an empty forging room, closed the door, and then looked at the various forging appliances in front of him.
Because he had previously read some other forging-related classics, he knew the whole forging process of increasing the enchantments. He even prepared all the relevant materials.
After Liu Ming took a deep breath, he took out a black iron ruler…
Ten days later, muffled sounds could be heard from the forging room, then a burst of gray flames scattered around.
In the forging room, Liu Ming, with a face full of dust, hurriedly stopped his gestures. The thirty meters array dimmed abruptly, revealing a gray flying knife suspending in the center of the array.
The flying knife at this time already looked bleak. Most of its spirituality had long been lost. The original five layers of enchantments now only had two layers. The refinement had obviously failed.
Liu Ming looked at the spiritual weapon scattered on the other side, and shook his head with a wry smile.
In these few days, the forging materials he prepared earlier only had a few left. Among the eight inferior grade spiritual weapons, except for adding two layers of enchantments on a small blue bell that originally had three layers of enchantments, the rest had failed.
Among them, half of them were like this flying knife. The number of enchantments was reduced and their spirituality was lost. They were basically unusable.
Forging and refining spiritual weapons clearly wasn’t as easy as he thought!
Liu Ming glanced at the flying knife in his hand, after gritting his teeth, he decided to buy some inferior grade spiritual weapons and try again.
After all, forging was like alchemy. Without the help of that mysterious space, he could only gradually master it through continuous practice.
So Liu Ming got up, patted the dust on his robe and walked out of the forging room. After cleaning himself up on the third floor, he walked toward the spiritual weapon shops in the market.
At the same time, in a huge underground chamber of a shop not far from Bai Lian Pavilion.
A strange purple glow gathered from all corners of the secret room, enveloping the entire secret room and forming a faint purple light curtain.
In the light curtain, a young woman in purple clothes was looking at the white flying blade with solemn expression. She launched symbols at the flying blade from time to time.
Below the flying blade was a dense criss-crossed groove in the size of ten meters. The light blue liquid in the groove was wiggling slowly. Looking closely, there were faint spiritual patterns on the surface of these spiritual fluids.
On the other side, an old man kept making gestures to launch waves of symbols into the groove. The blue spiritual patterns flickered, slowly forming an array!
At this time, the young woman in purple clothes groaned and spat out a cluster of blood essence at the flying blade in the air.
Suddenly, the surface of the flying blade was full of white light, and it trembled in the air. At the same time, it made a sharp chirm.
The old man hurriedly launched a few more symbols, making the blue fluids in the groove tumbled. The next moment, the blue fluids turned into wisps of blue water vapour that blasted at the flying blade.
At the same time, a series of low and obscure chants came from the young woman in purple clothes.
A weird scene appeared.
The blue water vapor around the white flying knife suddenly condensed and formed a ball shape to wrap the flying blade tightly. It kept spinning in the air, and it buzzed intermittently.
The young woman in purple clothes frowned slightly, and she stopped the chant. She squinted as she looked at the blue ball in the air.
After about ten minutes, the buzzing sound from the ball disappeared. The old man on the side changed his gestures and pointed toward the air. The blue ball turned into water vapor and collapsed, revealing a white light flying blade.
The young woman in purple clothes looked delighted. After waving her hand, the flying blade fell into her hand.
“Congratulations miss, you finally completed the sacrificial refinement of this flying blade.” The old man stopped the gestures and bowed slightly.
“The prototype of this flying blade magic weapon is finally completed. If it weren’t for your help, Old Qiao, and I had taken the secret elixir to temporarily enhance my spiritual power to the maximum, I’m afraid I can’t finish the refinement on my own..” The young woman in purple clothes wiped the sweat from her forehead and said softly.
“This is also the good fortune of the young lady. You are indeed destined to get this magic weapon. The person in our clan had foreseen that you will have good fortune in this area. Maybe he was talking about this treasure.” This alchemy master called Qiao Ziyi stroked his beard and spoke slowly.
“This should not be the case. Although this magic weapon is of great use to me, as I’m the direct lineage in the clan, as long as I can advance to the Crystallization Period, there will be a prototype of the magic weapon. Besides, with that person’s identity, why would he bother about a magic weapon prototype and call this good fortune?” The woman in purple clothes shook her head after hearing this.
“What… miss said is right. With that person’s divination, a magic weapon prototype is really nothing in his eyes.” After listening to this, Qiao Ziyi was dumbfounded for a while. He couldn’t help but say with a smile.
