“Yes, junior will answer anything I know to senior.” The young man in a white robe felt relieved when he heard the words, but he still maintained a respectful look on his face.
“Your group has such low cultivation; there isn’t even a Crystallization Period cultivator. Aren’t you afraid of encountering any misfortune event?” Liu Ming asked these people again after taking a look at them.
“Senior is coming to this Miaozhong Market the first time, so you may not know the situation here. We are the disciples of the Sky Bull Sect near the Miaozhong Market. We came here to give offering under the order of our master, so no matter the savage cultivators or the beastkin cultivators in the nearby area, they generally won’t trouble us.” The young man in a white robe hurriedly replied.
“Offering? Who do you offer to?” Liu Ming’s eyes flashed, and he continued to ask.
“Miaozhong Market is under the jurisdiction of the Green Savage Tribe, and it worships 1 of the 3 great beastkin powerhouses of the Southern Savage, Wind Demon Mo Jie.
It is said that Master Mo Jie was infinitely close to the Mystic Comprehending State. He has never lost in a fight in the entire southern wilderness.” The young man in a white robe hurriedly explained.
“The 3 great beastkin powerhouse, I’ve heard about them before, but I’m not that clear about this Wind Demon.” Liu Ming said with thoughtfulness.
“Senior, Wind Demon does not belong to any beastkin forces in the southern wilderness. He is just a casual cultivator. However, with his great reputation, many savage tribes in the southern wilderness still actively give offerings to him. If human cultivators like us want to establish a foothold near the Pig Dragon Mountain, we can only offer something to protect us from the harm of the savage tribe cultivators.” The young man in a white robe said respectfully.
“Oh? Since he is a casual cultivator, how does he have the time to deal with the matters of the southern wilderness?” Liu Ming frowned.
“Master Mo Jie of course has no time to take care of these matters, but it is his direct disciple who guards this Green Savage Tribe. Besides, other forces of the southern wilderness won’t provoke the tribes that worship to Wind Demon. They acknowledge them as 1 force, but these tribes don’t belong to the same region. Instead, they scatter throughout the entire southern wilderness.” The young man in a white robe carefully replied.
“Oh, okay. You can go now.” After Liu Ming listened, he was relieved.
Since this Miaozhong Market really had a powerhouse, Wind Demon Mo Jie, as the backer, no one would dare to cause trouble in it at will. In this case, he didn’t have to worry much about going into the market.
The young man in a white robe then bowed hurriedly, mounted the spiritual beast and left in a hurry with the other disciples.
Liu Ming flew toward the market in a golden light.
After a short while, Liu Ming walked in from the entrance on the side of Miaozhong Market.
Compared with the prosperous Taiqing Sect Zong Market, this Miaozhong Market was even better. As soon as he walked on the street, he could hear the bustling sound one after another. There were cultivators of the savage tribe and beastkin clan and also some outsider cultivators. They went in and out from the shops all around. The entire market looked very lively.
Among the markets Liu Ming had seen before, only River Moon City, which he visited before, had such a scale.
After all, not all markets of this scale only had cultivators. The vast majority were ordinary people.
After spending 500 spirit stones to buy a map of the Miaozhong Market from the vendor at the entrance, he walked deep into the market.
Like most markets, Miaozhong Market was also filled with all kinds of forging shops, elixir shops and other shops, but the styles of shops here were mostly savage buildings which were built with thick trees and branches.
These buildings were a little simple and crude from the outside, but the interior had everything.
Liu Ming walked around for half an hour before coming to the central plaza of the market.
The entire plaza was very big. It was about a few acres. A bronze statue about a thousand meters high was built in the middle. It seemed to be a totem that was worshipped by the savage tribe.
In the open space around the statue, there were a lot of casual cultivators setting up booths that sold all kind of spiritual weapons and spiritual materials. This place was bustling like the city of ordinary humans.
Next to the main streets around the plaza, there were several majestic buildings that were 60 meters tall. They were built with some thick trees. These were the largest shops in the market. Those shops that were located far away from the plaza were some medium or small size shops.
After using Divine Thought to scan the map in his hand, Liu Ming walked into a famous medicinal shop marked on the map.
Half a quarter of an hour later, when he walked out of the shop again with a normal look, he had already purchased some auxiliary materials for refining the yun spirit pill. He also asked about the price and quantity of the five light liquid.
After Liu Ming took out the map and glanced at it again, he walked into another medicine shop.
After about 2 hours, he basically visited all the medicinal shops marked on the map.
As a result, he found that this Pig Dragon Mountain Range was worthy of being the place that produced the five light spiritual honey. There were indeed a lot of five light liquids being sold here. Almost every shop sells them, but most of them were mainly inferior or intermediate grade. There weren’t many upper grade five light liquid, and the superb quality was even unheard of.
After some inquiries, Liu Ming learned that the upper grade and even the superb five light liquid were controlled by the Green Savage Tribe due to their low quantity. They would only be auctioned every 3 years. Under normal circumstances, the five light liquids that circulated in the market were all of poor quality. If one could find an upper grade five light liquid, it could only be barely identified as an upper grade. It couldn’t satisfy one’s need at all.
In this case, many outsiders simply entered the mountains to find the five light bee nests and collect high quality spiritual honey.
Liu Ming was naturally not satisfied with the result, but it was almost night now. He came to an inn in the center of the market and spent 30,000 spirit stones to rent a courtyard with a secret room. After that, he set a few enchantments and meditated in the secret room.
Early the next morning, Liu Ming disguised into a well-mannered scholar-like man and once again visited a medicinal shop that revealed having the upper grade five light liquid yesterday.
As soon as he stepped into the shop, a savage tribe muscular man greeted him.
“I’m the shopkeeper. May I know what medicinal materials are you looking for?” The muscular man asked with a smile on his face.
“I wonder if your store can sell top-grade five light liquid?” Liu Ming asked straightforwardly.
“Oh! We of course have the upper grade five light liquid. I would like to invite mister to the 2nd floor to discuss it in detail.” Hearing what Liu Ming said, he knew that there was a big business coming, so he said respectfully.
Liu Ming made a gesture to let the other party lead the way.
The muscular man understood and greeted a young man to look after the shop. He ordered a maid to prepare tea, then he personally led Liu Ming to the 2nd floor.
In a unique elegant room on the 2nd floor.
Liu Ming sat on a wooden chair, took a sip of spirit tea, and looked around the arrangement of this elegant room.
The walls of this room were built from bamboos of the exact same length. A few pots of gorgeous strange flowers and a wooden shelf with many strange stones were neatly placed in the corners. In the middle was a round table and a few wooden chairs, then there was nothing else. There was a gray light curtain at the door which should be the soundproof enchantment of this elegant room.
“Mister just mentioned that you want to buy the upper five light liquid. Although this five light liquid can be bought in most shops in this market, there are very few upper grade products, so the price is not cheap. May I know how much you want?” The muscular man asked with a smile as soon as he entered the house.
“If I can buy a lot at a time, can the price be discounted?” Liu Ming asked calmly.
“Mister also seems to be a forthright person. This upper grade five light liquid is 500,000 spirit stones per bottle. If you buy more than 5 bottles at a time, we can give you a discounted price, 2.3 million spirit stones.” The muscular man said with a smile.
“The price is reasonable, then give me 5 bottles first.” Liu Ming smiled faintly.
“Please wait a moment, I’ll go get them now.” Hearing this, the muscular man stood up delightfully, left the elegant room, and walked to the 3rd floor of the shop.
Liu Ming took a faint sip of spirit tea with a hint of contemplation on his face.
It took some time to refine the yun spirit pill. Even if he refined every day and night, these 5 bottles of five light liquid could last for about 2 months.
After just a few moments, the muscular man shopkeeper returned to the elegant room with a smile again. There were 5 silver bottles in his hand.
As soon as the muscular man raised his hand, the 5 silver bottles flew out and slowly landed on the table in front of Liu Ming.
“Mister, please examine them first.” The muscular man spoke to Liu Ming.
Liu Ming nodded slightly. He pointed at 1 bottle to open the cap, and a faint fragrant wafted out.
When he looked at the faint yellow liquid, a faint hint of disappointment flashed in his eyes.
This five light liquid was indeed of the upper grade, but compared to the 5 bottles purchased in the River Moon City, it was even worse in terms of viscosity and aroma. Thus, the price of 500,000 per bottle wasn’t very cheap.
It seemed that the information he inquired was right. He could only buy the better quality five light liquid from the auction. However, these were at least considered as an upper grade which was better than the intermediate grade five light liquid he saw yesterday. They cost 200,000 per bottle.
After a while, Liu Ming checked the 5 bottles of five light liquid and placed them on the table gently, revealing a thoughtful look.
“Are mister satisfied? If you buy from our shop frequently, I can count these 5 bottles as 2 million spirit stones for you.” The shopkeeper’s face changed slightly when he saw it, then he said gently.
TL: Five light liquid that can barely be considered as upper grade, will Liu Ming still buy from the shop frequently? When will the auction start? Can he sell some yun spirit pill before the auction so that he can get the things he wants?
