Shi Xueyun once again showed her power, even the elders especially, the Second Elder began trembling in fear. Even Yi Tianyun sensed the aura his aunt emitted, he just tried to calm himself down knowing full well that her anger was not aimed at him.
This was all because they were too timid and tended to keep everything low-profile, so the Jade Palace doesn’t attract additional threats from outside, instead, it encouraged other factions to suppress them!
“Palace Lord, please don’t make a rash decision, if this results in a conflict, it would be extremely unfavourable to the Jade Palace!” the Third Elder could not help but stand up and speak.
“It seems like you are worrying too much. Do you think Master Kong has that much influence? He’s just a third level blacksmith, Yi Tianyun’s level is higher than him. Do you think there is anyone else besides us here who knows what actually happened?” Shi Xueyun said solemnly.
If Yi Tianyun’s level was higher than Master Kong, then those clans that usually requested help from him would realize, and they were sure to be inclined to come here instead of asking Master Kong.
What’s necessary was their strengths, not their weakness!
“Yi Tianyun’s blacksmith level was a little higher, but the gap between them was not that big, so it’s not like we have a big advantage or anything, plus nobody else knows of Yi Tianyun’s capabilities in forging so, compared to Master Kong who has been a blacksmith his whole life, Master Kong obviously has more renowned.” the Second Elder retorted.
“So, there was no problem as long as my level is much higher than his?” Yi Tianyun said indifferently. “If that is the case, then I can show you once again. I will forge several more Spirit Weapons. After seeing the results, you should understand the difference.”
Although these three elders kept pointing out his flaws, it was undeniably for the sake of the Jade Palace. In order to reduce Shi Xueyun’s burden, what he could do now was stand up and show his power.
Immediately Yi Tianyun put materials into the furnace and began to forge a Spirit Weapon. He performed the exact same steps as before except for one, except for one step. After he put all the materials into the furnace, he put in the Immortal Flame he obtained earlier, before quickly tempering the materials.
The smelting process was a lot faster, and the extraction rate of impurities was greatly improved!
“This, what kind of flame was this?” everyone was looking at it intensely. Blacksmiths usually had some sort of special flame. Many of them were all born with a strong flame within them, or they could absorb a special flame later on.
They didn’t expect Yi Tianyun to have a special flame!
Of course, Shi Xueyun was no exception either, She genuinely thought that it was incredible, so incredible that she almost didn’t believe her eyes. They were all speculating, how Yi Tianyun was capable of forging weapons, not to mention Spirit Weapons. They did not expect him to have a special flame as well, does this mean he wasn’t even serious when he challenged Master Kong earlier?
Fortunately, that’s not the case. Yi Tianyun was definitely trying his best earlier, and he obtained Immortal Fire after he finished the quest. If he had obtained the Immortal Flame prior to it, he obviously would have used it in the challenge earlier.
Once he finally finished it, he firmly held the long sword in his own hand to confirm its quality. This sword was better than the previous one, and it was colder. At the very least it belonged to the middle level!
“Middle-level Spirit Weapon?!” After they saw it, they were shocked. The price difference between the lower and middle levels was huge.
For the time being, regardless of its specific quality, the price was about two or three times high. For example, lower-level Spirit Weapon cost 30.000, while middle-level Spirit Weapon would, at the very least, would cost 60.000 or higher.
『Ding! Congratulations on forging a weapon! You gained 50 blacksmith mastery.』
After successfully forging a middle-level Spirit Weapon, his mastery increased by fifty points, five times more than earlier. At this rate, levelling up the blacksmith skill wouldn’t be as difficult. It’s all thanks to Immortal Flame. Furthermore, when he forged using Immortal Fire, its mastery also increased, just like with his martial arts.
The Immortal Flame also increased the success rate of forging middle-level Spirit Weapons. Originally, at Yi Tianyun’s level he had a success rate of 30%, but due to the Immortal Flame, it increased to 80%, it was not 100% so fortunately, he didn’t fail this one, otherwise, it would have been really embarrassing.
“It really is a middle-level Spirit Weapon. You can forge middle-level Spirit Weapon too?” They were all shocked, even Yi Tianyun was surprised, just like everyone else.
This was the best proof he could show everyone for now.
This time they had nothing to say, what else could you say? His blacksmithing skill was much higher than Master Kong’s and Master Kong was invited by many other groups as a guest.
“Elders, how is this compared to Master Kong’s goods?” Yi Tianyun said indifferently.
“I will prepare the materials at once…” the Great Elder was convinced by Yi Tianyun’s capabilities. In the end, Shi Xueyun was absolutely right, she had faith in him, which they don’t have.
“Palace Lord, if there’s nothing else, I will excuse myself now… I will heed your instructions later.” The Second Elder sighed deeply. She couldn’t look down on him anymore. He managed to reach this level which meant her disciples were no longer qualified to compete with him.
This was the benefit of possessing an additional skill like blacksmithing, it would give you an advantage, an additional option.
The Third Elder also excused herself, she has no choice but to acknowledge Yi Tianyun. However, this matter had a great impact on them. Shi Xueyun would undoubtedly be even more respected in the future. Just like what she said, the Jade Palace could not keep their heads down and remained suppressed any longer.
Because this was most clear regarding the situation with the Heavens Immersing Ancient Ruins. The Spirit Sect was trying to forcefully snatch their entry permit. They thought they were weak because we kept giving in to their conditions, to the point where they challenged us to a duel and the one losing had to give the entry permit to the one who won! Obviously, they challenge us because they don’t even see us as a threat.
Every faction had a different number of entry permits granted to them. The Jade Palace only got two. If they ended up losing the duel against the Spirit Sect earlier, there would have been only one permit left, which would have been even more embarrassing for them.
After they left, Yi Tianyun handed the spirit sword left by Master Kong to Xiao Lian: “Sister Xiao Lian, this sword is for you.”
“This, this… Young master, I can’t accept this, this is a spirit sword!” Xiao Lian hurriedly refused.
“A spirit sword is still a sword, Master Kong harassed you earlier so, at the very least, take this to relieve yourself of your anger toward him!” Yi Tianyun laughed.
“Yi Tianyun said it is yours so it’s yours. This is only a lower-level spirit sword. As you can see, he can forge middle-level Spirit Weapons. This sword is nothing to him.” Shi Xueyun persuaded Xiao Lian to take the sword.
“Well, then I’ll take it. Thank you, Young Master! Thank you, Palace Lord!” Xiao Lian was excited about getting the sword. It would help her a lot. Most disciples in the palace didn’t have a Spirit Weapon, yet she got one.
“Then I will continue to forge weapons with the rest of the materials, so when the time comes, we’ll be ready.” Yi Tianyun said with a smile. “We might as well bring out all the materials we have, I’ll keep forging spirit swords for my sisters here, so no one will look down on us anymore!”
Being able to forge Spirit Weapon was just too awesome, the main benefit was that he could increase the mastery of his blacksmith skill. When it levels up later, he’ll be able to forge something even better a middle-level Spirit Weapon.
