Lan Fengjin pinched Qin Yun's face and said with a smile, "You little demon. Aren't you afraid that I'll be angry when you say that other women are prettier than me?"
Qin Yun took out the furnace and stuffed the beast skins in. He said, "Sister Lan, you are ranked in the top five out of all the women I've ever met!"
Lan Fengjin also helped him put the beast skin into the furnace and asked, "Who's first? Is it your big sister Grand Preceptor, your Teacher Yang or your lovely wife Xiao Yuelan?"
"In my heart, they are ranked first!" Qin Yun said with a smile.
When Lan Fengjin heard this, she couldn't help but hit him a little, "So in your heart, I'm ranked at the bottom, too heartless!"
Qin Yun felt somewhat aggrieved and said, "Sister Lan, in my heart, you are also ranked first!"
"Damn brat... That's more I like it." Lan Fengjin smiled with satisfaction, it was an extremely charming smile.
Qin Yun glanced at the valiant demoness and did not dare to look any further. He was worried that he would be distracted because of that.
"How do you want me to help you? It seems like you can do it very well by yourself!" Lan Fengjin also became serious. The refining process of this great array was quite difficult and required a lot of concentration. If something were to go wrong, then his efforts would be for naught.
"Help me deal with my beast skin!" Qin Yun said, "You are in the Martial Dao Realm. If you were to use your strength to refine the hide, the overall quality would be much higher."
Lan Fengjin said, "This is a very arduous job. If it was anyone else who asked me to do this, I wouldn't even care about them, but you...I definitely won't refuse."
Qin Yun said with a smile, "Sister Lan, if you need my help in the future, I won't reject you."
Lan Fengjin smiled before helping Qin Yun organize the beast skins.
Qin Yun carefully took out the animal skin that was almost completely refined in the furnace. The beast skins had been burnt into a ball of red soft mud that looked like liquid. After that, he placed the burning red dragon bone into the beast skin and began to refine it.
During the forging process, Lan Fengjin used the furnace to burn the beast bones. As long as it was done, it would be taken out and handed to Qin Yun to forge.
They used the beast skins of spirit beasts and Class 9 Magical Beasts. When combined together, they could create a very flexible beast skin that could store energy.
After two days of busy work, Qin Yun obtained a square hide that was about two meters wide.
"It's a relatively small formation. It's enough for you to use by yourself." Lan Fengjin wiped her sweat away and smiled, "I would really like to see you carving the Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Array."
Qin Yun said, "Sister Lan, there is no need for you to avoid it! When I carve, I will not block the inscriptions!"
In the past two days, Lan Fengjin had expended a great deal of effort. When Qin Yun was forging the hide, she had released the energy of the Martial Dao Realm to nourish the hide.
"So you're saying that you're going to teach me the Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Array?" Lan Fengjin asked in surprise.
"I want to make an exchange with you." Qin Yun chuckled. "Sister Lan, you must have mastered quite a few good inscriptions. Let's each take what we need. How about it?"
Lan Fengjin thought for a moment and said, "Okay! If you teach me the Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Array, I'll teach you a set of top quality spirit marks, okay?"
Top-grade spirit marks are also extremely rare. Qin Yun's thirty-six spirit marks are only high-grade.
"What is the use of these top quality spirit marks?" Qin Yun had to ask first. If the usage was not great, he would be at a disadvantage. If he had spirit marks with the same effects, then there wouldn't be a need.
"It's said that the Star Guiding Spirit Marks are used to make talismans and can attract meteors. There are even some small meteors that have a large amount of rare and precious refining materials, so they are quite useful. Of course, I haven't tried it yet because I still don't have the ability to make top grade spirit talismans." Lan Fengjin said.
Qin Yun was secretly tempted when he heard this because he recalled how he and Yang Shiyue had seen many meteors fall from Blue Spirit Star Palace. At that time, they had obtained the Void Spirit Stone needed to forge a Spirit Treasure, as well as the Soul Soaring Stone that could enhance their martial spirit.
"Sister Lan, have you ever seen anyone successfully bring down a meteor?" Qin Yun asked.
Lan Fengjin nodded, "Yes, but I have to tell you, not all meteors that fall are valuable. Most of the meteors that fall are ordinary stones and good ones require a certain amount of luck."
"Alright, let's do it!" Qin Yun said with a smile after conversing with Lan Fengjin.
Following that, Qin Yun began inscribing the inscriptions of the Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Array. Lan Fengjin watched from the side as she recorded it down.
While he was carving the runes, Qin Yun was progressing very slowly. It was much more stable as to not make mistakes.
Lan Fengjin would also have a deep impression of this as she personally witnessed the process.
When she saw how Qin Yun carved such complicated runes by himself, she only felt a deep shock. Even she might not be able to proceed so smoothly.
She had many questions she wanted to ask but she could not ask now because Qin Yun was earnestly inscribing.
Back when Qin Yun first carved the Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Array, it was done in the Heaven Punisher Tower. Back then, the conditions were not good and his mental strength was not that strong.
Right now, the conditions in all aspects are extremely good. His mental strength has also become stronger and the process went extremely smoothly.
About four days later, Qin Yun completed a complete set of the Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Array. He heaved a long sigh of relief.
"Have you carved this before?" Lan Fengjin also memorized the inscription. She was already very familiar with several portions of the inscription but she didn't know the portion of the dark lines.
Now that she had the Dark lines, she could set up the Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Array.
Qin Yun is also very tired as he sat on a chair. He closed his eyes and did not answer Lan Fengjin's question. Instead, he was resting.
Lan Fengjin walked over and wiped the sweat off his face before channeling her inner force into Qin Yun's body to help him relieve his fatigue.
With Lan Fengjin infusing his inner force, Qin Yun no longer felt exhausted. Instead, he felt much more energetic.
"I've carved this formation before. I learned it from the ice pagoda on top of the peak at the Hua Ling Wu Academy." Qin Yun chuckled and said, "Sister Lan, you need to keep it a secret. You can't pass it on to anyone else."
"I know, I definitely won't give this good stuff to others!" Lan Fengjin said with a smile before taking out a piece of beast skin and handing it to Qin Yun.
Qin Yun took it over and took a look. He secretly took a deep breath. An extremely deep and complicated set of inscription was carved into the hide. It was Star Guiding Spirit mark. It appeared to be much more complicated than the Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Array.
"So powerful!" Qin Yun praised.
"You're not allowed to spread the Star Guiding Spirit mark either. If the Blue Spirit Star Palace finds out, then I'll have to run for my life." Lan Fengjin also warned him.
"Don't worry!" Qin Yun kept the beast skin.
The Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Array that he had created was still on the ground. He walked over and sat on the soft brown beast skin. He took out a handful of crystal coins and scattered them on the ground above the beast skin for the formation runes to absorb.
As long as the Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Formation was activated and absorption started, a portion of the spiritual energy would be allocated to operate the formation, while the other portion would be absorbed by the people sitting in the formation.
"Sister Lan, this Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Array, what level is it at?" Qin Yun asked curiously. He wanted to know what grade of array formation he could forge.
"It can be considered a high-grade small-scaled Spirit Array!" Lan Fengjin said, "Normally, this kind of array is set up by oneself, so it's very rare."
"In that case, am I considered a high-grade Inscription Master?" Qin Yun laughed as he skipped past the intermediate level Inscription Master.
Lan Fengjin was stunned and found it hard to believe. However, she had to admit that Qin Yun was a high-ranked Inscription Master. He was only sixteen years old!
"I have to go look for Zhuo Chuan for the assessment. Senior Inscriptionists will receive a higher status." Qin Yun said with a smile.
Zhuo Chuan had not come yet. He had gone to help Qin Yun get the Energy Consolidating Spirit Pill. It would take him a few days to return.
And in the following days, Qin Yun guided Lan Fengjin on how to inscribe the Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Array's inscriptions so that she could familiarize herself with it.
When Zhuo Chuan returned, he immediately went to Qin Yun's suite.
"Sorry to keep you waiting!" Zhuo Chuan smiled and said: "The transaction went very smoothly and this is your Energy Consolidating spirit Pill. You have pretty good luck and I also happen to know that if you were a few days late, you might not have any left. You'll have to wait for a year or two."
Qin Yun received a jade box and opened it. Inside was a golden pill. It was the Energy Consolidating spirit Pill.
"Hurry up and go eat it. Let's see if it helps!" Zhuo Chuan was also excited. If Qin Yun succeeded, he would be a sixteen-year-old ninth level martial body.
Xiao Yuelan had terrifying talent. She was seventeen years old, at the ninth level martial body. If Qin Yun consumed the Energy Consolidating Spirit Pill to make a breakthrough, he would be even more terrifying than Xiao Yuelan.
Qin Yun took the Pill and rushed into the secret chamber. He consumed the Pill and entered a refining state. It took him a period of time to finish refining the pill.
Zhuo Chuan also left the suite and went to busy himself with his matters.
Lan Fengjin, on the other hand, was in her room, practicing the spirit inscriptions of the Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Array.
Eight days later, Qin Yun woke up in a secret chamber. When he opened his eyes, his eyes were pitch-black. There was no whites in his eyes. It was a terrifying sight to behold.
Gradually, the whites of his eyes appeared and a black mist seeped out of his body.
"The Energy Consolidating spirit Pill is really useful, it can let me condense the nether-sun inner yuan into a vajra inner core!" Qin Yun looked at his Dantian and looked at the black core. It is the Vajra Inner Core.
Transforming a vajra inner core would make his internal energy stronger and it would also be safer than his internal energy.
Furthermore, he was able to produce a little bit of inner supreme force. If the Supreme Force was infused into the inner strength, it would be able to unleash an even more terrifying power.
The most obvious thing about 9th level Martial Body is that the inner qi could overflow the body.
Qin Yun's Nether-sun inner core is very special. It could contain one's aura, so there is no way it could emit any of the internal energy. However, he felt that he could not be considered to have the cultivation of the 9th level Martial Body because he still had two Inner Yuan to transform into Vajra Inner Core.
Normally, he would only use the inner energy of the Heavenly Lion's Arm, the Thunder Flame Martial Spirit. With this inner energy, he would not be able to release the Supreme Force and others would not know that he was a martial artist at the ninth level Martial Body.
"If I convert the remaining two inner yuan into Vajra Inner Core, I might be able to fight with a cultivator of the Martial Dao Realm." Qin Yun was secretly excited as he walked out of the secret chamber.
