Chapter 780: Recovery Relic
Damaged meridians were very difficult for warriors to fix. The reason was that repairing the damage required the absorption of energy, but with the meridians severed, the pathways for energy flow were also severed. This resulted in a vicious cycle. Hence, warriors would typically take a long time to recover from their severed meridians. It could even affect their future cultivation. If their meridians were severed and their dantian destroyed, then it was almost equivalent to having their cultivation crippled. They would then return back to being a mortal.
With this recovery relic, it nearly halved the time Yi Yun needed to recover, pleasantly surprising Yi Yun.
“Luo Fengling’s relic has helped me quite a bit… ”
Yi Yun murmured to himself, but he knew that as a steward disciple of the Fire Cloud State, Luo Fengling would not have given him a very precious relic. The best relics were, of course, kept for Luo Fengling herself.
But even so, this relic’s effects gave him a surprise.
“It probably has to do with the difference in materials used for relic refinement in the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven… ”
Yi Yun knew very well that when comparing the Tian Yuan world to the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven, other than the difference in Desolate Heaven technique heritage, the main difference would be the great difference in the materials used in the Desolate Heaven technique.
The Desolate beasts found in the Tian Yuan world were on a completely different level compared to the Fey beasts that lurked in the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven’s mountains and lakes.
For example, the Desolate race’s Sacred Spirit was a Fey beast that came from the 12 Empyrean Heavens. It had grown up in the lower realm, which was an inhibition to its natural talent. But even so, it had become the guardian of the Desolate race. All the primordial true spirits and primordial strains in the Divine Wilderness were subservient to the Sacred Spirit!
It had lived for tens of millions of years and even after being killed by the Black-armored Demon God, its corpse was coveted by the Sovereign of the Eventide. He wanted to steal it to increase his own cultivation realm, indicating how valuable the Sacred Spirit’s corpse was.
However, if the Desolate race’s Sacred Spirit was placed in the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven, it would not have been anything spectacular.
Many Fey beasts in the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven were hundreds or even thousands of times stronger than the Desolate race’s Sacred Spirit!
What sort of results would happen when these Fey beast’s Fey bones or Fey cores were refined into relics? Even without any refinement, just grinding the Fey bones to powder and eating them might have wonderful effects!
As the best cook could not produce anything without grains, even the relics left behind by the ancient Great Empress in the Great Empress mystic realm were refined using the bones of desolate beasts in the Divine Wilderness. Similarly, they were incomparable to the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven’s relics.
Hence, although Yi Yun obtained a large number of relics from the God Advent Tower, their main usage was to maintain the God Advent Tower’s arrays.
“The Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven’s Fey bone materials sure are impressive. Speaking about that, isn’t it my job to be in charge of the material storehouse? No wonder this job was coveted by Bai Wei, Dong Hu, and company. If one isn’t honest, it is indeed easy to reap a lot of benefits.”
With this thought in mind, Yi Yun walked towards the material storehouse.
In fact, the top materials stored in Mt. Fengling were carried by Luo Fengling personally. Whatever was stored in the material storehouse were just common materials.
These materials were rich in variety, and the material storehouse had a dedicated accounts book. The procurement of every material and warehousing were well-documented in it.
As Yi Yun walked to the material storehouse, he suddenly caught a whiff of a faint aromatic fragrance of relics. This gave him a thought as he traced the fragrant smell of the relic.
Yi Yun came to an elegant little courtyard, and in it, there was a 14–15-year-old girl refining relics.
Yi Yun was slightly surprised. The person refining relics was Luo Fengling’s maidservant, Tao’er.
The relic-refinement process could not be disturbed, so Yi Yun stood in his spot and watched silently.
At that moment, Tao’er was in full concentration. Her tiny face was glowing red, and her forehead was covered in beads of sweat.
Beside Tao’er, there was a tiny red cauldron that was spinning.
In the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven, the relic-refining tools used were slightly different to the Tian Yuan world. In the Tian Yuan world, they used disk arrays, but here, the main tool was a relic cauldron.
On the surface of the tiny cauldron, there were runic engravings that looked simple as they glowed with different intensities. All the materials were placed inside the cauldron, and by surrounding it with Heaven Earth Yuan Qi, the materials were repeatedly refined.
Yi Yun could not help but open his Purple Crystal’s energy vision.
Be it the Tian Yuan world or the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven’s Desolate Heaven technique, as a Desolate Heaven Master, the most important thing was energy control.
And in his energy vision, Yi Yun could clearly see every detail in Tao’er’s control of energy.
However, Tao’er was only a Desolate Heaven apprentice, and she was only a beginner. She learned the most superficial Desolate Heaven techniques, So be it her hand seals or energy control, she was only very average.
The Fey bones and herbs in the cauldron were also the most common of materials. All of this could be seen just from the energy flow they emitted.
But even so, Tao’er was extremely careful with her every move. It could even be said that she was trembling with fear. More beads of sweat oozed out of the pores on her face, but despite being extremely meticulous, the Yuan Qi blob in the cauldron was beginning to spin out of control.
Yi Yun could see everything clearly through his energy vision; hence, despite him not knowing the hand seals of the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven, he could tell through the Purple Crystal that Tao’er had made many mistakes with her hand seals.
Indeed, moments later, with a ’Peng’ explosion, all the materials in Tao’er’s cauldron went up in smoke. The Fey bones were shattered and the bone ash flew out.
Thankfully, they were all low-level materials, so the explosion was not very powerful. It just blackened Tao’er’s little face and disheveled her hair.
“I failed the refinement again. I failed the refinement again.” Tao’er did not care about her disheveled hair as she looked completely frustrated and depressed. “Tao’er, can you be any dumber!? How many times have you failed?”
Looking at the material dreg in front of her and the toppled cauldron, tears could not help but well up in her eyes.
As a human, she was easily marginalized and despised in the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven.
Most resources were controlled by the Fey race in the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven. If a human wanted to gain success in the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven, they had to put in greater amounts of effort.
However, Tao’er’s talent was not good enough to gain special attention from the major factions for nurturing. She was just a maidservant, but because of her kind heart, she had been taken in by Luo Fengling. However, she could not rely on Luo Fengling all the time, since she was meant to serve Luo Fengling.
She knew that Luo Fengling’s goal was to enter the Luo Divine Hall. It was located in the Luo clan’s royal capital, a place where top geniuses in the Luo clan gathered. If Luo Fengling were to enter the Luo Divine Hall, she would also accompany her. The geniuses there would also bring their attendants. These attendants also had many things to do, so if she was too useless, she would be causing trouble for her Missus in everything she did. It would be better for her not to accompany Luo Fengling then.
With this thought in mind, Tao’er could not help but clench her tiny fist. “Tao’er come on, you can do it. You can’t hinder Missus. You can definitely do it.”
Unknowingly, she said out the words in her heart verbally.
After saying that, she suddenly came to realize that someone was standing behind her. Turning back, her face blushed.
“Brother… Brother Yi… ”
Tao’er stuck out her tongue and she was somewhat perplexed. She had failed in her relic refinement and she had been muttering to herself. All of that was quite disgraceful, so having all of that seen by Yi Yun naturally made her feel distressed.
