After everyone arrived, the alchemy conference began. There were dozens more people than they were at the beginning. They just arrived because they were situated too far away. They were all experienced and skilled cultivators who could refine pellets directly without resting.
With Ye Xiwen and the other three men as the head, they reached a huge plaza directly. There were already many individual cultivators waiting around, but some were late. Nevertheless, the individual cultivators did not look upset. They think the latecomers were entitled to such treatment since they were all great masters.
Ye Xiwen saw Yang Tingyu among the crowd not far away. Because of Ye Xiwen, he also received special treatment by the people of Medicine King Valley. He was sitting cross-legged in the first row. It could be said that he was the only individual cultivator sitting there.
Yang Tingyu naturally knew the reason for such a treatment, so he was slightly excited while looking at Ye Xiwen.
Ye Xiwen looked around. Within the entire plaza, there was a huge alchemy furnace which was approximately a hundred feet long and two hundred feet wide. It was gigantic like no other. The furnace walls were engraved with complex and profound arrays which exuded unspeakable majesty. It turned out to be a Great Sage device which was a magnificent one. Countless spiritual energy which was seething underneath turned into a series of alchemy flames, which was constantly burning.
This should be the Medicine King Cauldron, which was Medicine King Valley’s magnificent Great Sage device which established the sect. According to the legend, it was a Great Sage device that was built and refined by the Medicine King Valley’s Sect Founding Patriarch in the past. The cauldron had refined countless world’s outstanding pellets which established its reputation gradually.
The Medicine King Cauldron would not be used under normal circumstances. Not only because it was not necessary, but also because the consumption was so tremendous that it would make one frown. Besides the Founding Patriarch, no one in Medicine King Valley could activate this Medicine King Cauldron alone. The past Founding Patriarch was an invincible master in the Great Sage Great Perfection Realm, but there was no longer such a person in Medicine King Valley now. At most, it was Yao Buping who was in the Great Sage Late. Several Great Sages had to join hands to use the Medicine King Cauldron every time, and each activation would even consume a whole spiritual vein.
However, it could also be seen that Medicine King Valley was extremely determined this time. If the pellet was refined successfully, a Great Sage would emerge directly on the spot. It was still worthwhile despite the enormous cost.
The Medicine King Cauldron constantly exuded white spiritual mist which was mixed with medicinal fragrances assailing one’s nostrils. There were probably many flavors of medicinal materials added. Everyone felt that inhaling this medicinal fragrance once would open up all their veins. It had endless benefits especially for those individual cultivators. There were several Legend individual cultivators who had a breakthrough into Semi Sage on the spot. One could imagine the strength of this medicine effect.
Layers of invisible arrays surrounded and protected this Medicine King Cauldron because it was too important for Medicine King Valley. They were not afraid that someone would destroy the cauldron. With the mighty power of a magnificent Great Sage device, it was impossible to destroy the Medicine King Cauldron even if all of these people attacked. Instead, they were concerned that some individual cultivators, or even some people with ill-intentions in the Medicine King Valley would disrupt the pellet refining.
Although alchemy cultivation was not the mainstream, there were definitely a lot of alchemy cultivators, and Medicine King Valley was just one of them. Someone would surely be dissatisfied with the fact that Medicine King Valley was about to refine Violet Limitless Qi Pellet. These people might attack, so Medicine King Valley was also extremely well prepared.
“Brothers, we have been tempering this Violet Limitless Qi Pellet for more than ten years, and it is already a semi-finished product long ago. I hope that all brothers will work together in the next phase to make this pellet a finished product!” said Yao Buping
The Medicine King Valley could be said to rack their brains and invested a considerably huge amount of resources in order to refine this Violet Limitless Qi Pellet. They had been tempering it into semi-finished products since more than ten years ago just to wait for it to be refined completely today. It was their first time refining Violet Limitless Qi Pellet, so they naturally wanted to be well prepared. If they were to refine it in the future when they already had the experience, then everything would be simple. The huge consumption and preparation work could be reduced tremendously too.
In other words, it was just a trial product now, and it would enter the streamlined production in the future. Of course, this level of pellet was already almost a Level 6 Man Grade pellet. Even if it entered the streamlined production, it could not be mass-produced. However, it would definitely be stronger than the present.
The standard grade pellets were divided into three grades: Heaven, Earth and Man. Each grade was divided into nine levels. Among these nine levels, Level 1 to Level 3 were inferior grades; Level 4 to Level 5 were middle grades; Level 7 to Level 9 were top grades.
Level 6 was already the strongest pellet that Medicine King Valley could produce. As for the Human grade top level pellets, it must be performed by those in Transcendent Realm to be successful. Of course, if a Transcendent Realm master refined this kind of pellet, it would be much simpler. It would even require less consumption with higher chance of success, but alchemy was not the mainstream. Moreover, alchemy cultivation was tough. It was not easy to cultivate to be a Great Sage, let alone Transcendent Realm. Currently, only the president of the Alchemist Association was regarded as an alchemy cultivator in the Transcendent Realm. However, with Medicine King Valley’s strength, it was naturally hard to invite a distinguished character like the president of the Alchemist Association.
Many great alchemy masters nodded one after another, and they looked solemn. At this moment, they were in the same mood as the people in Medicine King Valley, which was to hope that the pellet could be refined successfully. Although the pellet had nothing to do with them eventually, they could obtain the pellet recipe. If it was refined successfully, they would surely have more experience which would eventually increase the chances of success.
More than one hundred alchemy masters led by Ye Xiwen and the other three men, started to sit cross-legged at all sides. They all started refining and various colours of alchemy flames flew out instantly, shining the entire space and gushing into the Medicine King Cauldron.
Many individual cultivators were so fascinated by just watching the various alchemy flames that were rarely seen on usual days. If alchemy cultivators wanted to refine pellets, it was not possible to rely on ordinary flames only. Furthermore, most pellets would require various conditions, and one of the important points was the flame temperature. They all had cultivated their own alchemy flame, and every person’s alchemy flame was different. These were all great alchemy masters, so the alchemy flame techniques alone would require the individual cultivators to learn for a long time.
Particularly the four leading men sitting around Medicine King Cauldron, whose alchemy flames were stunning to see. Yao Buping and the two men’s alchemy flames were close to blazing white colour, and the temperature was very high. Only Ye Xiwen’s flame was different. It was actually a golden alchemy flame among the various alchemy flames. That golden alchemy flame was extremely dazzling and outstanding among all the alchemy flames. Although it seemed less than one-tenth of an average alchemy master, the light was shining brilliantly. It was as though his flame was about to suppress everyone’s alchemy flames.
The crowd’s expression changed. Even Qing Xuanzi, Yao Buping and Tian Butong were startled after seeing it. One could see a person’s mentorship through their alchemy flames. Generally, the deeper the background, the better the martial techniques of alchemy flame. The alchemy flames of the three of them were also the top among the crowd. It was not only because of their deep cultivation, but also because they had the best mentorship.
But compared to Ye Xiwen’s alchemy flame, their flames paled in comparison. It was nothing significant. Ye Xiwen’s alchemy flame was very small, it was not even one-tenth of an average alchemy master, so the size was not comparable to them. However, the dazzling light almost suppressed all the lights of other alchemy flames.
What is his alchemy flame? How could it be so bright?
Everyone was wondering about Ye Xiwen’s alchemy flame. Although the size was small, the quality was surprisingly high. It was like a feeling that an emperor was born, and their alchemy flames were inferior and subject to this alchemy flame.
Everyone stared fixedly at this alchemy flame, especially Yao Buping. He felt fortunate that he did not stir up a conflict with Ye Xiwen because of Gongyang Yongfeng’s matter. Otherwise, who knew whose loss would it be?
However, what they didn’t know was that this alchemy flame was nothing but Ye Xiwen’s spontaneous breakthrough after a day’s time. It was a type of alchemy flame cultivation method called Golden Sun Sacred Fire which Ye Xiwen learned from Ye Mo. It was the emperor of the alchemy flame. According to Ye Mo, his master, the supreme Demon King, led the Demon Domain army to conquer the world and killed a super high-level alchemy cultivator in the past. The alchemy cultivator was said to be a domain lord too. His cultivation was very impressive, surpassing deities, saints and sages. This was the fated alchemy flame which he cultivated.
After the alchemy cultivator’s death, the alchemy flame cultivation method fell into the hands of the Demon King, and finally passed on to Ye Xiwen via Ye Mo. However, this kind of fated alchemy flame was extremely difficult to cultivate. If Ye Xiwen cultivated by himself, it was impossible to cultivate a trace of the Golden Sun Sacred Fire even after a hundred years of cultivation. Fortunately, he had the help of the mysterious space where he could deduce the cultivation method. But even so, the cultivation method alone consumed a whopping one billion elixirs, while it took two billion elixirs to achieve this level of cultivation. In other words, while waiting for the arrival of other alchemy masters in this one-day period, he had consumed three billion elixirs, which was half of his net worth. The cost of this martial technique cultivation left Ye Xiwen flabbergasted. It was not inferior compared with Demon’s Wings and Phoenix Regeneration techniques, perhaps even more.
However, although the technique had consumed a massive amount, the effect was obviously very remarkable. As soon as the Golden Sun Sacred Fire came out, the other alchemy flames pale in comparison.
However, everyone was just surprised for a short moment, and soon dived into refining the pellet. Everyone present were alchemy experts. They naturally understood all the important conditions of alchemy, and all types of alchemy flames were put into the alchemy furnace in the same beat as well.
They all received the pellet recipe just now, and naturally knew how to cultivate. Although it might not be entirely pure, it didn’t matter because the Medicine King Cauldron was very resilient. If it was another typical alchemy furnace, it would probably explode long ago. However, the Medicine King Cauldron was very versatile. It was a very powerful device indeed.
Time eventually passed while they were refining the pellet, and soon a month elapsed.
