Liu Ming entered the secret room of the independent courtyard of the second residence, then he skillfully set up an enchantment around him. A small emerald cauldron flashed out and enlarged into the size of 30 meters before landing on the floor.
It was the Liushen Cauldron.
He left in a hurry just now, so he didn’t take out the yun spirit pill from the cauldron yet.
He pointed 1 finger to lift up the cauldron cover.
Just a wave of his hand, 5 white elixirs flew into his palm.
Among the 5 elixirs, 3 elixirs had elixir patterns on them; 1 of them was an earth grade elixir with 4 elixir patterns.
“I really refined an earth grade yun spirit pill, it is no wonder that strange phenomenon will appear.” Liu Ming played with this earth grade elixir with a delightful expression.
As long as he could refine this earth grade yun spirit pill, then the superb five light liquid he purchased was far worth the money.
This time using the superb five light liquid, not only he successfully refined the yun spirit pill, he also got the earth grade yun spirit pill as he wished. On one hand, it was due to the mystery of the superb spiritual fluid; on the other hand, it was due to his countless experience in refining the yun spirit pill and the effect of this Liushen Cauldron.
For ordinary alchemy masters, even if they had the superb five light liquid in their hands, it was extremely difficult to refine the earth grade elixir of the Crystallization Period.
After all, when it came to the Crystallization Period earth grade elixir, its quantity and value were worlds apart from the Condensation Period earth grade elixir, both the quantity and value are worlds apart.
After the strange phenomenon of refining the earth grade yun spirit pill, it spread in Miaozhong Market the next day which naturally caused a commotion.
For a while, the streets and alleys of Miaozhong Market, both mortals and cultivators, were talking about it.
But as time passed, people gradually forgot about this incident.
Liu Ming wasn’t bothered by this. In the following times, he stayed in the new residence and consumed the yun spirit pill every few days. He continued to enhance his cultivation through elixir while refining a large number of yun spirit pills.
Liu Ming became more and more proficient the more he refined. Moreover, the superb five light liquid he bought from the auction was also of excellent quality. After a period of time, he continued to refine more flawless grade elixirs.
A year passed in a flash, and Liu Ming used up all 20 bottles of upper grade five light liquid.
In this situation, Liu Ming also had to wander between the small and medium markets around Miaozhong Market again besides cultivating to buy alchemy materials. He also sold some of the yun spirit pill to some small shops so that he could continue to buy materials like the five light liquid.
2 years later, in the big auction hall of the Miaozhong Market, it was still full of cultivators.
As a faint voice sounded, the court suddenly fell silent. Everyone cast their gaze at a thin old man in luxurious clothes.
“Since no one increases the price anymore, then this bottle of the superb five light liquid belongs to this senior.” The man with a square face who presided over the auction announced after waiting for a while.
Beside the thin old man, a young girl in a light-green dress looked joyful hearing that.
After the old man nodded his head, he stood up expressionlessly and motioned to the girl in the green skirt to lead the way, then he walked slowly toward the side hall.
Time flies, and in a blink of an eye, it had been 10 years since Liu Ming refined made the earth grade yun spirit pill for the first time.
In the past 10 years, Miaozhong Market held the big auction several times as scheduled, and every time the superb five light liquid appeared, Liu Ming, who had disguised himself, bought all of them with his powerful financial resources.
Now he had 3 bottles of the superb five light liquid with him.
In the inn’s secret room, a fierce crimson flame enveloped Liushen Cauldron.
In front of the cauldron, Liu Ming sat cross-legged and controlled the flame with a solemn face. Suddenly, he launched a symbol on the cauldron.
With a soft “poof“, a green light rose into the sky from the cauldron, and the crimson flame also dissipated quickly.
Liu Ming waved his sleeve to dispel the white smoke from the cauldron, then he saw 4 crystal clear elixirs in it.
Every elixir had elixir patterns; 1 1 elixir pattern, 2 2 elixir patterns, and 1 3 elixir patterns, all of which were pellet grade elixir.
Seeing this, Liu Ming sighed softly, and a look of disappointment flashed across his face.
This was his 6th time using the superb five light liquid to refine the yun spirit pill. In addition to the main material, he had also selected the best auxiliary materials.
It might be due to the superb five light liquid, he could successfully refine pellet grade elixir every time. But unfortunately, except for 10 years ago, there had been no earth grade elixir so far.
Now it seemed that the earth grade yun spirit pill he refined last time was really a bit of a fluke.
“I think my proficient in refining pill can’t be improved for now. However, there are rumors that the superb five light liquid at the auction was actually blended, and its purity cannot be compared with the real superb five light honey. If that was the case, the possibility of refining the earth grade elixir could be improved a lot if he could get the original superb spiritual honey produced by the five light queen bee.”
After Liu Ming put the elixir away, he muttered to himself.
Then he kept the Liushen Cauldron and continued to sit cross-legged on the ground.
After taking the yun spirit pill continuously for the past 10 years, his cultivation was increased by leap and bound. He had already hit the bottleneck of the intermediate stage of the Crystallization Period a year ago.
Through repeated reference to the Tiger Dragon Hell Prison’s ancient book in the sea of consciousness, he also tried a variety of methods, but he still couldn’t break through.
Speaking of which, this Tiger Dragon Hell Prison was really an exquisite technique. It was also considered to be well-known among the various techniques in the inner door, let alone its miraculous effect of tempering one’s body.
But because it was very hard to break through the bottleneck, so over time, people rarely chose to practice this technique.
“Now it seems that I can only rely on external forces.”
After thinking for a long time, Liu Ming murmured to himself. He took out a yun spirit pill in a jade box, and a thick fragrance instantly filled the secret room.
The 4 elixir patterns on the yun spirit pill were clearly visible; it was the earth grade elixir he refined 10 years ago.
Looking at this elixir, Liu Ming’s eyes flashed with pain.
If this earth grade yun spirit pill were to be auctioned, the price would be able to reach an incredible astronomical number easily.
After all, it was really hard to find an elixir that could help breaking through the Crystallization Period’s bottleneck. If it were for the fact that he tried several pellet grade yun spirit pills to no avail, he would definitely be reluctant to use it.
But compared to his own cultivation, this was nothing. Since he could refine an earth grade elixir, he believed he could refine the 2nd pill later.
As Liu Ming calmed down, he swallowed the elixir.
As soon as the elixir entered his stomach, it didn’t take long for an icy feeling to surged in his body, causing him to shudder involuntarily.
Liu Ming had taken countless yun spirit pills, so he was familiar with it. However, he still dared not be careless about the earth grade elixir, so he quickly settled down and started to channel his spiritual power.
With a gesture, a pure spiritual power from the Spiritual Sea wrapped around the yun spirit pill in his body. It began to digest the elixir.
As time passed bit by bit, 10 days later, this earth grade elixir was finally completely digested with no waste.
A wave of medicinal power circulated several times in Liu Ming’s body, and the spiritual power in his Spiritual Sea also vibrated violently.
Not long after, billowing black gas emerged from Liu Ming’s body. It quickly rotated around his body, forming a huge black gas ball that almost filled the entire secret room.
At this time, Liu Ming only felt a wave of violent spiritual power surging madly in his meridians.
From time to time, he would feel a pain in his meridians. Even with his tyrannical body, he still felt a little overwhelmed.
As soon as Liu Ming gritted his teeth, he had to do his best to soothe the restless spiritual power. He silently channeled the Tiger Dragon Hell Prison to gather the chaotic spiritual power while trying his best to absorb the medicine power of the yun spirit pill.
He stayed in the secret room for more than a month.
During this period, the black gas ball that filled the entire secret room had gradually reduced. Now it had reduced to only a few inches thick from his body, but its color was as black as ink like it was substantial.
On this day, a dragon roar came out from the black gas ball, then the black gas ball turned and soared into the sky in a thick black light beam.
With the lessons of the previous strange phenomenon of pill refining, Liu Ming had laid 5 layers of enchantments in the secret room. When the black light beam just rose, it was blocked immediately. Not a single trace of spiritual power spread out.
At this moment, Liu Ming’s arms shook, and there was a crackling sound in his body. With a split of the black gas, several dragon and tiger phantasms roamed in the air before rushing back into Liu Ming’s body. His aura soared wildly in an instant.
Half a day later, the door of the secret room was opened with a bang, and Liu Ming, dressed in a green robe, strode out. There was no abnormality on his face, but there was a hint of joy in his eyes.
Even without channeling his spiritual power, he could now clearly feel the pure spiritual power flowing in his body.
In the Spiritual Sea, the 153 spiritual power crystals were 1 size larger. He had broken through to the intermediate stage of the Crystallization Period.
As for the Tiger Dragon Hell Prison, it also magically broke through the bottleneck and reached the 4th level.
The earth grade yun spirit pill actually had such a magical effect on breaking through the realm. This made Liu Ming more more eager for it.
