Chapter 1664: Fey Altar
“Your Majesty, if I show fear towards this human junior, that’s the end of my alchemical achievements.”
However, as an Alchemy Monarch, he represented Heaven Fey City. Now that he was being mocked by a junior, how could he admit to it?
It would be like if someone threw a pile of shit at you, and not only did you catch it, you even licked it.
Jiang Lichen could not afford to lose face in such a manner.
“Alright…” Ruins Emperor nodded and did not continue.
“How do you want to compete? Where and when? What happens if you win or lose?”
Although Jiang Lichen was highly spirited, he knew that Yi Yun was not someone simple. It was best to figure out what tricks Yi Yun had up his sleeve.
If it was a domain he wasn’t skilled in, he would absolutely not act stubbornly. That would cause him to fail miserably at an easy task.
Yi Yun cupped his hands and said, “Pagoda Lord, you are being too harsh in your words. I do not want this competition to harm any feelings. I made the suggestion only to prove what I just said and not prove that my alchemical skills are better than the Heaven Fey City’s. I just wish to tell His Majesty that the recipe to refining the Myriad Form Shura Pills is useless even if I give it to others.
“Besides, of the ingredients needed for the Myriad Form Shura Pills, the Ancestor God’s blood is particularly difficult. As for the other valuable ingredients, they are naturally not difficult for the Heaven Fey City to gather with its heritage. However, the Ancestor God’s blood is nowhere to be found.”
As Yi Yun said that, he noticed that the Ruins Emperor was silent. This left him slightly taken aback. Could it be that… the ancient Heaven Fey actually had the Ancestor God’s blood?
The Ancestor God’s blood was not obtainable from any random Celestial expert. That would not make it rare.
It had to be from a patriarch of the Celestials!
After the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch vanished, the Ancestor God was the strongest in this universe!
Yi Yun and Blood King had obtained some Ancestor God blood thanks to their opportunities.
Could it be that the ancient Heaven Fey also had some?
On careful thought, the peerless Fey patriarch who established the Heaven Fey City was an astounding figure. In the billions of years that followed, the ancient Heaven Fey had incredible accumulations. It was not impossible for them to possess some Ancestor God blood.
Upon coming to this realization, Yi Yun did not speak further. Instead, he took out a jade box.
“Inside this jade box are two Myriad Form Shura Pills!”
The moment Yi Yun said that, Jiang Lichen’s and Ruins Emperor’s eyes lit up!
Just a few of the precious pills was enough to move Fey Thearchs, without even the need to mention the heaven-defying price of the ingredients used in the recipe.
“Your Majesty, I’m just competing with the Pagoda Lord. If the Pagoda Lord is able to completely refine the medicinal essence and energy out of these two Myriad Form Shura Pills and restore them to their original states, I’ll admit defeat. I’ll hand over the recipe and also offer the two Myriad Form Shura Pills to you, Your Majesty!”
The competition Yi Yun suggested was, in fact, very simple.
If it was a one-on-one alchemical competition, it would be pointless if he were to publicly smack Jiang Lichen in the face.
Furthermore, Yi Yun’s alchemical skills mostly came from the Sinkhole, and compared to the Chaos Heavens, it was unlikely he had an advantage.
Even if he were able to prove his alchemical superiority, he would only end up offending the ancient Heaven Fey, bringing him no benefits.
Yi Yun wished for a transaction which was beneficial to him. This was the reason why he left two Myriad Form Shura Pills.
“Extraction and restoring the medicinal essence?”
Jiang Lichen pondered for a moment. To put it plainly, pills were simply a vessel for medicinal essence and energy.
There were three major steps in alchemy. First, the extraction of medicinal essence from the various materials. Second was to refine the medicinal essence with alchemical fire. The third step was to fuse the medicinal essences into one, forming a pill!
Now that Yi Yun challenged Jiang Lichen to extract the medicinal essence from the Myriad Form Shura Pills without destroying them, it was equivalent to going backwards from the third step.
In fact, the third step of pill refinement was the relatively easier step.
An experienced alchemist could tell the technique and process used by the alchemist who refined the pill from studying it.
If he was unable to reverse the third easiest step, then it meant that it was basically impossible for him to refine the Myriad Form Shura Pills. It was not even possible to understand the recipe.
“Hand me the pills,” said Jiang Lichen with a deep voice. He remained careful even though the challenge appeared simple.
“Pagoda Lord, there’s no need to rush. What if you fail to figure it out?
“What will you do?”
Yi Yun looked at the Ruins Emperor when he finished his sentence. “Your Majesty, if Pagoda Lord Jiang fails to restore the Myriad Form Shura Pills, then these two Myriad Form Shura Pills will be offered to you, but… I wish to borrow the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins’ Fey Altar!”
The moment that was said, Ruins Emperor’s and Jiang Lichen’s eyes narrowed slightly.
This Yi Yun was really ambitious!
Back when Yi Yun planned on helping Jiang Xiaorou clinch the throne, he had kept the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins’ Fey Altar in mind.
Back then, Rain Numinous had said that the royalty of the top few clans of the Chaos Heavens would jointly hold a trial for the members of the royalty which tested them on every aspect!
The person who got first would win handsome rewards, including entry into the Fey Altar!
The so-called Fey Altar was an altar that worshipped the heavens in one of the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins’ forbidden grounds. Over the billions of years, the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins had many powerful Fey choose to die in there before their natural death. The lifeblood powers that released upon their death continued lingering in the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins’ forbidden ground. If one used a mystic technique to stir the powers, especially if it was a peerless genius, they could call upon the Heavenly Tribulation on the altar!
It was the most supreme Heavenly Tribulation in the Chaos Heavens!
The three bloodlines in Yi Yun’s body had fused together after his consumption of the Myriad Form Shura Pills, but ultimately, it was a fusion which lacked tempering!
In addition, Yi Yun’s cultivation time was rather short. Before he broke through to become a Godly Monarch, he needed the Heavenly Tribulation’s tempering.
And previously, Yi Yun’s experience of the Heavenly Tribulation in the Sinkhole was too weak. Compared to his body that was in need of tempering, that was nothing worth mentioning.
Yi Yun eagerly wanted to enter the Fey Altar!
Besides, even if Jiang Xiaorou won first in the competition between the royal candidates and even became crown designate, she would be the only one to enter the Fey Altar.
As a human, it was impossible for Yi Yun to enter with Jiang Xiaorou.
Therefore, when Yi Yun refined the Myriad Form Shura Pills, he had an idea.
He allowed Blood King to publicly internalize the pills and made everyone in Heaven Fey City see his advancement.
Pills that could enhance a Fey Thearch were worthy of a spot at the Fey Altar.
Ruins Emperor looked at Yi Yun and realized his goal.
The Fey Altar’s Lightning Tribulation had the risk of death even for princes who had stimulated their ancestors’ bloodline, much less humans.
This human had cultivated in both laws and body. His progress was enough to leave many Fey embarrassed.
Was there really no danger to allow such a person to develop his strength?
Ruins Emperor was hesitant.
Yi Yun could tell what was on Ruins Emperor’s mind as he said, “Your Majesty, don’t worry. Although I’m human, my sister, Jiang Xiaorou is an ancient Heaven Fey. I will not destroy my sister’s foundations and I can swear that upon my Dao heart. In the future, as long as the Fey do not cross me, I will not be at odds with the Fey’s interests.”
