Chapter 656 – Great Perfection Realm
(T/N: Changing Weapons Refining Master to Artificer because to this day, I still don’t know if Luo Tian is capable of making other stuff other than weapons. The literal translation from the raws is refining tool master if you’re curious.)
It would be false to say he wasn’t disappointed when he found out there were no spiritual treasures inside the Xumi Ring.
Luo Tian thought that even if there weren’t a lot, there should be at least one or two of them, right? What he never imagined was that there would be nothing.
Since this was the case, he could only rely on himself.
As long as he raised his Forging skill to the great perfection realm, he would have a certain chance to forge a divine artifact.
With his maxed out luck stats, he should be able to accomplish it.
As for entering the Floodplain World to train, he could only push it to the back burner for now. Mount Hua Immortal Sect wasn’t completely stable yet, so Luo Tian had to put all his effort into making this huge ship fully operational before he would be at ease.
One must mention that being a Sect Leader had its benefits.
If you wanted something, you could just send out an order and over a thousand people would rush forward to do it for you.
In just a short three days’ time, Luo Tian collected a warehouse full of profound metal.
Luo Tian stood in front of the mountain high of profound metals and sighed. “It’s really great to be the boss… You can have anything you want. With so much profound metal, it should be enough for me to level up my Forging skill to the great perfection realm.”
Apart from the Forging skill, he had to raise the other skills as well.
He was already in the Profound God realm, so his opponents will definitely be experts at the Profound God realm as well. Just a single level difference and you can become an existence that others cannot take on. Since he couldn’t level up right now, he could only let his skills go up to make up for the difference.
This was also a way to enhance his cultivation.
Han Hua was standing behind Luo Tian before saying: “Sect Leader, these are the extra profound metals from the Forging Hall, minus their daily usage. Is this enough for you?”
Luo Tian replied: “It’s enough. Senior sister, can you get me some tier one spiritual herbs? I only need tier one while the higher tiers can be left for the Pill Hall.”
Han Hua then said: “Okay, I’ll go take care of it right now.”
She didn’t know what Luo Tian needed them for but she knew that everything Luo Tian did had a good reason.
During this time, Han Hua was taking care of a lot of matters for Mount Hua Immortal Sect. She didn’t have time to cultivate and only helped with administrative affairs. She was a huge help to Luo Tian.
Luo Tian walked into the warehouse and said: “Senior sister, I’m going into seclusion. Apart from you, don’t let anyone else bother me.”
Han Hua nodded, “I understand.”
All the forging materials were prepared.
Luo Tian stored them all into his spatial ring before entering the fifth level of his Skill Necklace.
Luo Tian couldn’t help but thank Eggy for being merciful and not eating his Skill Necklace. Otherwise, raising the level of his Forging skill would be harder than ascending to the heavens.
“Forging was successful, proficiency +6.”
“Forging was successful, proficiency +6.”
Luo Tian worked on without stopping.
He was using the lowest quality profound metal in order to forge the lowest grade xuan weapons. The success rate was basically 100%. Luo Tian wasn’t chasing after any high grade items but the proficiency points. He was trying to reach the great perfection level as soon as possible.
He didn’t really care what item he was forging or whether they can be used at all.
It wouldn’t go to waste anyway because when Eggy comes back, he could just eat them.
Thinking of Eggy, Luo Tian muttered to himself: “Who knows where that foodie went off to do his missions. He still isn’t back after three days, nothing bad could have happened to him, right?”
He stopped thinking about it.
With Eggy’s current cultivation, most likely even Profound God experts aren’t his opponent. He should be quite safe inside the Tianxuan Continent. Luo Tian was more at ease thinking up to this point.
He was going crazy training his skill.
He didn’t rest for a single second.
Two days later.
Luo Tian’s face was covered in black soot while his body gave off the stench of sweat. His eyes gleamed as he heavily exhaled, “This is the last one!”
The profound weapon was placed in the furnace.
Profound energy was circulating under great control. Not a trace of energy was lost in the profound metal. Luo Tian was now a level 9 Grandmaster Artificer, capable of perfectly controlling the energy within profound metals. With the addition of his profound energy, the two types of energy came together at a 99% compatibility rate.
“Forging was successful, proficiency +6.”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for leveling the Forging skill to the last great perfection realm. You have gained the title – Divine Artificer.”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for reaching the great perfection realm for a skill. You have gained a system reward of 1,000,000 experience points, 10,000 profound energy…”
A symbolic reward from the system.
Luo Tian faintly smiled at his reward. When he looked at his Forging skill at the great perfection realm, he exhaled a breath of air. “It’s finally completed. My great perfection Forging skill! I now have a certain chance of forging a divine artifact with this skill. From now on, Eggy no longer has to worry about not having any divine artifacts to eat! Hahaha…”
Eggy’s levels were pushed up by using divine artifacts.
If he could easily forge divine artifacts, wouldn’t Eggy’s levels soar up like it was flying?
Eggy’s current level was still too low.
His body wasn’t comparable to a mature dragon at all. He was also in a rush to make more breakthroughs but Luo Tian was completely impoverished. Not to mention divine artifacts, Luo Tian didn’t even have spirit grade artifacts on him, so it was impossible to provide Eggy with a lot of resources.
With the addition of the current circumstances around Mount Hua Immortal Sect, Luo Tian was so poor that he might have to go out and sell his ass.
Luo Tian heard an alert tone in his mind.
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for killing the South Sea Giant Demon. You have gained 4,000,000 experience points, 40,000 profound energy…”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for gaining the Giant Demon’s Skeleton.”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for gaining the Giant Demon’s bloodline.”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for gaining the Giant Demon’s Heart.”
Luo Tian faintly smiled and said: “I didn’t expect this. He really went to do missions and even went to such a distant place like the South Sea. This is the Merit Hall’s hardest mission, not bad! Hahaha…”
Luo Tian got all the experience points from Eggy killing a demonic beast.
Even though they were over ten thousand kilometers away, it was the same.
This was the reason why Luo Tian told Eggy that he could only accept missions for killing demonic beasts.
When he looked at the loot explosion, Luo Tian became happy while saying to himself: “This is the perfect time to try to forge some divine artifacts. One of the Halls is fast approaching ten thousand merit points already.”
It’s about time to take something out so that all the disciples can see it.
This will make them put in even more effort.
After several days, Mount Hua Immortal Sect’s fortune seems to have been stabilized. At least it hasn’t kept going down.
Luo Tian exhaled a breath of air and forced all distracting thoughts out of his mind. His brows faintly furrowed as he focused all his spirit. He then took out the Giant Demon’s skeleton. It was a sharp bone similar to a fishbone, perfect to become an embryo for a sword.
Immediately after, Luo Tian made a thought and activated his Forging skill at the great perfection realm.
Right after that, his entire body seemed to have ignited into a fiery flame. Luo Tian’s hands were extremely fast as he injected profound energy and controlled the furnace. He kept layering profound energy over the bones and eventually realized just this alone wasn’t enough to forge a divine artifact.
He had to add something even stronger.
Luo Tian didn’t hesitate as he took out the Giant Demon’s Heart and the Giant Demon’s Blood. This was the perfect item to cool down the skeletal bone of the Giant Demon.
A red glow filled the sky.
A powerful energy beyond his control surged out. Luo Tian’s eyes turned fierce as he roared out: “You want to break out of my control? Succeed for me!”
