Wu Xiang was in the Martial Dao Realm and was considered one of the most powerful warriors in the border regions. But no matter how strong he was, he could not escape his fate. In the end, he would endure time until he died.
He also knew that his time limit was the most difficult period. He even wanted to kill himself many times in order to end the fear of death.
He placed all his hope of surviving on this spirit mark. He had also looked for a few Inscription Masters but they all failed in the end as they were unable to refine the Life Spirit Talisman.
And now, when he heard Qin Yun say that he would be able to forge it, he was so excited that he nearly cried.
"Of course it's true!" Qin Yun smiled. "Elder Wu, you can set your mind at ease by concocting my medicine! When you come out, I might have already crafted these two talismans!"
"I'm going, I'm going!" Wu Xiang wanted to quickly enter his room, he was extremely excited.
When Qin Yun saw his appearance, he could not help but sigh with emotion. Humans were extremely weak in the face of death.
Wu Xiang knew Witchcraft. So he felt that this world is too exciting and he was unwilling to die just like that. After all, if he could continue studying for so many years, he would be able to come up with medicines that could extend his life...
Qin Yun took the two special paper boards and entered the secret chamber.
"I helped Sister Lan make it the last time, so I can be considered rather proficient. Besides, I still have the Mental Resonance Xuan Pen!" Qin Yun looked at the short and beautiful snow-white pen. The more he looked, the more he liked it.
He closed his eyes and started to carve out the Royal Life Spirit Mark in his mind.
After two hours or so, he took a deep breath and concentrated, using just the right amount of strength to hold onto the Xuan Pen. He held it neither lightly nor heavily and after channeling the power of the Blood Soul into it, the Xuan Pen seemed to have fused with his hand.
Qin Yun focused his mind highly and allowed himself to immerse himself in the inscription.
Unknowingly, he had completed a top-grade life spirit talisman. It had already been two days!
"I've succeeded again!" Qin Yun looked at the talisman and revealed a very satisfied smile. "It's much better than last time! If I were to step into the Martial Dao realm, I might be able to create royal grade spirit talismans!"
He kept the Life Spirit talisman and sat down on a chair. He closed his eyes and rested.
After resting for a long time, he recovered to his peak condition. He then continued crafting the Life Spirit Talisman. This time, he used two days and everything went smoothly!
"Elder Wu will definitely be very happy if I succeed in both of them!" Qin Yun had not interacted with Elder Wu for long. However, he felt a sense of mutual trust. Therefore, he was secretly delighted when he thought of how Elder Wu could live for a few more decades.
"Elder Wu shouldn't have finished it yet. I will rest first!"
Qin Yun rested in the secret chamber for half a day before he left excitedly.
Wu Xiang was already inside the hall. He paced back and forth anxiously and when he saw the door to the secret room open, he immediately ran over and asked, "How is it?"
"It's a success!" Qin Yun took out the two Life Spirit Talismans and said with a smile, "Elder Wu, take a look!"
Wu Xiang's hands were trembling with excitement, tears welled up in his eyes. He kept saying, "Great, great, great...."
After feeling excited, he quickly took out a large barrel of golden spirit milk and said, "A Yun, I used up all the materials I collected. If you still can't break through, then I will immediately leave this place and continue collecting until you can. Because I have never met anyone who had two sets of Vajra inner cores and I don't know how much it would take to success."
"Elder Wu, just do your best!" Qin Yun was rather open-minded as he watched the scene. With a smile, he lifted the bucket of spirit milk and entered the secret chamber.
This time, Qin Yun stayed in the secret chamber for ten days before he came out.
Just like last time, he had fainted due to the cold. Then, as if he was asleep, he naturally woke up to find that the vat had dried up.
"Still no success!"
Qin Yun carefully examined his three inner cores. He was surprised to discover that there were many scars on the surface of the three cores but they were not completely revealed. It was as though there was a membrane on the surface of the cores, preventing it from expanding.
"The Dao life marks are like a seed that has already sprouted but it will be very difficult to break out from the earth!"
Qin Yun had three inner cores and two of them were for nourishing totem tattoo. That nether sun inner core was even more mysterious and powerful. Therefore, he felt that with three powerful inner cores, the dao life marks that he would nurture would definitely be extraordinary as well and he would need even more energy to be able to grow them.
"Just a little bit more and the life marks on my three Cores will break the shell! This is not bad!" Qin Yun sighed gently and walked out of the secret chamber.
Wu Xiang had been waiting in the hall for Qin Yun to come out.
"Did it work?" Wu Xiang did not sense Qin Yun's aura, so his heart turned cold.
Qin Yun shook his head but said with a smile, "Elder Wu, although I did not succeed in breaking through, I am very satisfied with the current situation! At least my internal energy has increased a lot and my vajra inner force has also increased a little. I think this result is pretty good."
Wu Xiang felt very guilty as he said, "That won't do. You kept your promise and helped me refine two talismans but I didn't help you break through. I will leave the Dragon City right now, go out and search for the materials to continue refining that type of spirit milk for you!"
"Elder Wu, there's no need!" Qin Yun hurriedly placed his hands on Wu Yu's shoulders and said, "Elder Wu, if you feel guilty, you can do me a favor!"
Wu Xiang quickly said: "What is it? Speak! Even if I have to go through fire and water, I will help you do it!"
Qin Yun said with a smile, "Elder Wu, you are being too serious. I just want you to help me collect some Xuan iron ores. After a period of time, I'll come back here and collect as much as I can!"
"No problem, I will do my best to collect them!" Wu Xiang nodded and immediately committed this matter to memory. It was one of the big things he would definitely do in the future.
Following that, Wu Xiang gave Qin Yun another five magical beast crystal eggs.
It just so happened that Qin Yun lacked a magical beast crystal egg, so he did not reject it. He originally wanted to stroll around the Dragon City but he was in a hurry to return to the Divine Inscription Palace main branch hall, so he didn't stay here for long.
Wu Xiang had found Old Tan. Together, the two of them sent Qin Yun out of Dragon City and out of the first town.
Qin Yun bade farewell to the two elders and hurried on his way using Flame Cloud Steps.
He was in a hurry to return to the Inscription Palace. On one hand, he wanted to find out more about the beast oil and on the other hand, even though he managed to record the Xuan Inscription of the Royal Spirit Cannon, he would need study it thoroughly on how to refine a Royal Spirit Cannon.
Qin Yun walked out of the first town. After a few days of trekking, he finally returned to the Inscription Palace. Along the way, he encountered a few waves of magical beasts. They all had spirit beast leaders, so he could only avoid them.
The moment he returned to the Inscription Palace and just as he entered his suite, Zhuo Chuan came to find him!
"Great Elder, is something the matter?" Qin Yun asked with a smile as he hurriedly invited Zhuo Chuan into his room.
"You brat, you are really incredible! I have already heard about your participation in the capture of the dragon beast crystal egg!" Zhuo Chuan chuckled and said, "Many old fellows have come to look for me. They want to rely on my connections to buy the Draconic Lion's crystal eggs. Are you interested in selling?"
This sort of good stuff was usually left for him to use. No one would be willing to sell it unless they were in dire need of resources.
"I want to keep it for myself!" Qin Yun said.
"That's true, you are not poor. Furthermore, you are also at the ninth level Martial Body realm. If you can reach the Martial Dao Realm, it will be of great help to you in the future!" Zhuo Chuan nodded.
Qin Yun asked, "Have the Beastmen made any big movements during this period of time?"
Zhuo Chuan had previously stayed in Demon Imperial City for a period of time. He stood up and took a few steps in the hall before sighing, "Yes, there's a big movement. A large group of beastmen have swarmed into the various empires."
"Demon King Zhenyao has also led an army and returned to Demon Imperial City. You can rest assured!"
Qin Yun nodded and said with a smile, "The plan of the Blue Spirit West Palace has been ruined by us. I wonder how they are feeling right now?"
Zhuo Chuan laughed. "That's a big plan. Moreover, it's related to whether or not they can command Blue Spirit Star Palace in the future. Now that they've been ruined, they must be in a very bad mood!"
Qin Yun recalled his gains from entering the Beastmen Mountain Range and could not help but feel delighted. The bottle he had obtained seemed to be filled with infinite amount of beast oil.
However, when he thought about the fact that Xiao Yanglong had mentioned in the Beastman Mountain Range that he would marry Yang Shiyue as soon as possible and use her as a cultivating furnace to gather nourishment, his heart grew heavy.
He also didn't know if he could help Yang ShiYue pass through this crisis.
"By the way, Qin Yun, Blue Spirit Star Palace is planning to hold a celebration to celebrate the Blue Spirit Saint Palace's five thousand years of establishment. When the time comes, there will be a martial arts competition and an inscriptionist competition. Do you want to go?" Zhuo Chuan asked, "If you want to participate in the Inscription Competition, you can register through the Inscription Palace!"
Qin Yun immediately asked, "Can I participate? If I were to participate in that martial arts competition, who would be my opponents?"
Zhuo Chuan said, "I thought you were only going to participate in the Inscription Competition. If it is a martial arts competition, it would naturally be a competition against a martial body at the ninth level! It's said that there will be Saints from the Blue Spirit Saint Palace. As for their strength, I'm not sure. In short, they won't be too weak!"
"Alright, I want to participate in the Martial Arts Competition. Oh right, help me register to participate in the Inscription Competition as well!" Qin Yun said with a smile, "Since it's a ceremony held by the Blue Spirit Palace, the rewards will definitely be very generous!"
Zhuo Chuan was slightly shocked: "Are you sure you want to participate in all of them? At that time, in these two competitions, there might be a chance for them to clash in terms of time!"
"Let's talk about it when time comes. I'll decide based on the circumstances!" Qin Yun felt that he was proficient in martial arts and inscriptions, If he had proper timing, the first place might have been his.
"Alright! It's said that those that participate in the Inscription Competition are all middle-level and high-level and with your level, you'll certainly be able to reach a very high ranking!" Zhuo Chuan smiled: "Kid, you're really greedy. You want to win both competition!"
Qin Yun curled his lips and said, "Great Elder, do you think that my standards are not high enough to guarantee that I'll be number one?"
