Luo Hu, who had always known everything, was startled when he heard the words. He hesitated for a while before replying,
“Well, I will tell you today clearly, lest you still have doubts in me. The Celestial Tablet is actually another magical treasure obtained by a demon in the prison, which had nothing to do with prison. However, the demon had surprising talents that he created a kind of mystic art that forcibly combined the Celestial Tablet and the prison into one. After that, I also slightly sacrificial refine Celestial Tablet so that you can use this thing to enter and exit this space at will.”
Liu Ming nodded secretly when he heard this.
This is actually the origin of the Celestial Tablet. That demon can merge the Celestial Tablet and prison, 2 treasures that aren’t related. It seems that his forging skill is definitely the best among the best.
Thinking of this, he couldn’t help but think of the first time he was possessed. The “demon” modified his Golden Moon Sword and the Heavy Water Droplet with his bare hands in such a short time. He even merged the crimson dragon scales into his body through some kind of method. More surprisingly, even the Tai Gang Sword Embryo left by Grandmaster Liuyin for his future generations also merged with the sword embryo that he condensed.
Could it be that these rumored demons are all good at forging?
“About this tablet, I actually can’t fully grasp it. In addition to using the power of prison to allow you to enter the illusion for cultivation, the true purpose of Celestial Tablet is actually a key that leads to unpredictable fortune or disaster! You should remember the strange phenomenon of this tablet the previous time right?” Luo Hu continued.
Liu Ming was startled after hearing this, and he immediately remembered the strange light door opened by the Celestial Tablet.
“At that time, I was actually trying to use this key, but I failed at that time. It seems that it was not mature when I used it. In a short period of time, it is difficult to use this key to bring you any benefits. As for the other matters related to this tablet, it’s no good for you to know them, so don’t mind it…” As Luo Hu spoke until here, he stopped, seemingly reluctant to say a word about Celestial Tablet.
“Thank you senior for your guidance, junior has finally resolved some of my doubts.”
Although Liu Ming still was surprised by the “key” in his mind, he didn’t ask more after thinking about it.
“Okay, I won’t say more about other things. The most important thing for you now is to advance to the Pseudo Pellet State stage as soon as possible. Next, I will sleep for a long time to accumulate more power before helping you to advance to the Real Pellet State. Therefore, you are on your own to the Pseudo Pellet State stage.” Luo Hu said, looking at Liu Ming deeply.
“Junior understood; I will not let senior down.” Liu Ming replied in a deep voice with a straight face.
After Luo Hu nodded, he stepped back a few steps and disappeared in front of Liu Ming slowly.
Liu Ming let out a sigh of relief looking at the emptiness in front, then he sat down cross-legged and massaged his forehead in distress.
Today he learned so much important information all at once, and he felt that his brain couldn’t keep up. He needed to sort out his thoughts slowly.
Liu Ming thought for half an hour before smiling bitterly, then he took out a white jade slip.
What was recorded in the jade slip was the refine method of the jingang bone tempering pill.
This time he could stay in this mysterious space for more than 30 years, so he had already planned for it.
The first was to learn to refine the jingang bone tempering pill.
Compared with the yun spirit pill and the golden yuan pill, the difficulty was nothing short of them.
According to the record on the jade slip, the jingang bone tempering pill came from the ancient time’s jingang Sect, which had the effect of enhancing physical strength, especially for strengthening the bones. It had the same effect as the Hell Bone Secret he practiced.
It was especially rare that this pill did not limit the number of times it could be taken. Although the effect would inevitably decrease after taking it for many times, according to the record on the jade slip, the jingang bone tempering pill could strengthen more than half of one’s bone strength before the person develops resistance to it.
For a cultivator like Liu Ming, the value of the jingang bone tempering pill was naturally even more self-evident. Of course, the complexity and difficulty of refining it was enough to make an alchemy master look up in a sigh.
More importantly, even if the alchemist had the talents to refine this pill, the chance of forming a pill was very low. The input and output were so different that they couldn’t attract the interest of those famous alchemy masters, so the jingang bone tempering pill was impossible to be bought in the market.
Of course, this pill had always been cherished by Master Jade Bone Zen, so very few people had seen it.
It was no wonder that cultivators such as Blood Emperor and Black Phoenix Fairy would hunt Liu Ming because of a jingang bone tempering pill.
After Liu Ming remembered the refinement process of the jingang bone tempering pill, he took out 10 storage talismans.
After putting the 9 storage talismans aside and crushing the 1 in his hand, a pill of alchemy materials appeared.
Then, Liu Ming waved his sleeve, and a green light flew out from it. Inside the cyan light, there was a small medicine cauldron with green light all over.
In the mid-air, the medicine cauldron grew to 9 meters in size. They were mysterious spirit patterns on it. It was the Liushen Cauldron!
Almost the moment when the Liushen Cauldron fell down, a symbol was launched into the Liushen Cauldron. “Whoosh”, crimson flames emerged at the bottom of the cauldron.
Before long, the green cauldron flickered in the flames, exuding a hot breath that made the surrounding temperature rise suddenly.
When the cauldron was hot enough, he launched a symbol at the Liushen Cauldron again.
“Poof“, the cauldron cover was suspended above the cauldron.
Seeing this, Liu Ming pointed at the jade box on the ground and opened it, revealing a small piece of green turtle shell that had dense tiny spirit patterns.
Although this thing looked ordinary, it was a luwu turtle’s shell of the Real Pellet State.
After staring at this thing for a while, he waved and threw the turtle shell into the cauldron. After that. An inconspicuous withered tree root also rose from the ground.
With a flick of his finger, the golden sword light cut the tree root into small pieces, and the pieces fell into the Liushen Cauldron one after another.
As Liu Ming continued to move in his hands, the alchemy materials were all put into the cauldron one by one.
The process was very orderly.
In this way, according to the jade slip recipe, more than 20 materials had all been put into the cauldron.
Liu Ming pointed at the floating cauldron cover and tapped it lightly.
The cauldron cover covered the Liushen Cauldron tightly.
At the next moment, the crimson flame under the cauldron suddenly became 6 thick flames under the control of Liu Ming. The surrounding temperature immediately rose a lot.
Liu Ming stared closely at the cauldron. As time passed, a trace of refreshing medicinal fragrance was exuded from the Liushen Cauldron.
With his countless experience in refining pills, many materials in the cauldron finally began to melt at this moment.
After a few hours, the fragrance from the Liushen Cauldron became thicker and thicker; the crackling sound like fried beans could be heard inside, and it was getting louder and louder.
Liu Ming’s eyes lit up suddenly. He kept launching symbols at the cauldron.
According to the pill recipe, the slightest error in the falling speed and orientation of each symbol might affect the probability and quality of the pill. A slight mistake was intolerable.
The crimson flame under his control had become more and more dazzling. Most of of the Liushen Cauldron had been wrapped in it. From a distance, the cauldron had turned into a huge fireball.
On the cauldron, a layer of colorful patterns began to loom.
Inside the cauldron, the voice also turned into a deep thunderous sound. It was loud, then soft, which seemed quite strange.
Liu Ming’s face was dull, but his eyes faintly showed a green light.
There were muffled crackling sounds in the cauldron!
The sound was not loud, but Liu Ming’s face turned gloomy, then he shook his head with a wry smile.
He stopped the cauldron’s flames and lifted up the cauldron cover. A cloud of smoke rose up and dispersed. There were a few gray particles remaining in the cauldron.
Liu Ming’s face had already returned to normal.
The refinement difficulty of the jingang bone tempering pill was far higher than that of yun spirit pill, so he didn’t have extravagant expectations to refine it successfully.
After clearing out the waste pills in the Liushen Cauldron, he sat cross-legged for a while. After adjusting his mind, he grabbed, and 1 of the remaining nine storage talismans automatically flew into his hand.
After crushing it, a large pile of alchemy materials once again appeared in front of Liu Ming.
The second attempt began.
Although he was mentally prepared, the difficulty of refining the jingang bone tempering pill had greatly exceeded his expectations.
Fortunately, he was in the mysterious space, which allowed him to try endlessly.
For 3 full years, Liu Ming finally refined the first jingang bone tempering pill after experiencing hundreds of failures.
The surface of the pellets showed a jet black luster like metal, and there were golden spots that flashed with a faint light. It looked quite irregular.
TL: How many years does he need to master that?
