Qin Yun entered the quiet secret chamber and took out many beast skins. He was preparing to create the flags needed for the flag array.
"It should take at least fifty array flags to cover the entire medicinal field!" He looked at the beast skins in his storage space. They were still sufficient for him to use.
Originally, he had planned on refining an array pillar. An array formation with an array pillar would have a much better effect than an array flag. However, refining the array pillars required a long time.
This was because the materials needed to refine a single array pillar were all hard materials and the required grade was also high. It would be impossible to complete within a short period of time.
If he were to refine a flag array, he would only need to create a flag.
At this moment, Qin Yun was sorting through the beast skins.
More than two hours later, Yuan Yanying had also finished watering the spirit medicine field.
Qin Yun opened the door to the secret chamber and asked her to come in to help.
Yuan Yanying was in the Martial Dao Realm. With her help in handling the beast skins, it would save Qin Yun a lot of time.
Qin Yun was only refining flags for the flag array. He did not need to do the same with beast skins as he did with the beast skin spirit array.
Since the beast skin spirit formation needed to bear a strong amount of energy, it needed to be forged into bone steel to be stable.
Since there were many flags scattered with pressure, the flag array did not need to be refined into bone steel when making flags.
However, he still had to go through some processing to make the beast skin fit the spirit runes and they would be even more distinct when he carved them.
The process of handling the beast skin was quite simple. After cutting the beast skin, one would infuse the Vajra inner strength of the Martial Dao Realm into the beast skin to let it contain the energy. After burning the beast skin once, the beast skin would absorb the energy to fuse with the spirit runes.
In the end, he could just inscribe the spirit runes on the flag.
With Yuan Yanying's help, Qin Yun was able to produce ten flags in a single day. They were all about the height of a person. It was fine if the flags were made from ordinary metal rods that could be inserted into the ground.
After making the flags, one would need to carve spirit inscriptions. This was the most difficult part.
In five days, Qin Yun and Yuan Yanying had completed fifty flags.
"Just need to carve the spirit rune now!" Qin Yun took a deep breath and felt a headache.
To draw the same spirit rune on fifty flags was truly a headache.
"Brother, your level of inscriptions is very high! Although I don't understand but it's still better than many of the Inscription Masters I've heard of!" Yuan Yanying exclaimed in surprise when she saw how smooth and clear Qin Yun's calligraphy brush was.
Qin Yun could only smile.
The spirit inscriptions that he needed to inscribe were very complicated. The first thing he needed to do was to inscribe a complete set of the Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Array's spirit inscriptions onto a small flag and then merge it with the water gathering array.
This is the fusion of two Spirit Arrays!
It wasn't difficult to draw the two Spirit Arrays separately. The difficult part was that when the Spirit Arrays merged, they did not conflict with each other and could even assist each other.
The Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Array was responsible for gathering a large amount of Nine Yang energy and then the water gathering array would quickly absorb the gathered Nine Sun energy and condense it into spirit liquid.
Qin Yun did not know if it would work. It was just his idea.
"Looks like I need two sets of flag array formations!" As Qin Yun inscribed the spirit runes, he pondered over the matter.
This was because after condensing the Nine Yang Spirit Liquid, a flag array would be needed to gather the spirit liquid and float it in the air before sprinkling it evenly over the medicine garden's fields.
"We only need to add a Rain Spirit Array!" Qin Yun said to Yuan Yanying, "Yanying, go find the Second Elder and ask him if he has a Rain Spirit Array!"
"Alright!" Yuan Yanying left in a hurry.
The ordinary rain Spirit Array was only able to gather the water in the air and then bring it down. It was also a very simple Spirit Array.
This type of formation was usually a flag formation because it covered a large area. After all, it needed to rain.
If the second elder had it, Qin Yun would not need to forge it.
Yuan Yanying came back very quickly and she took out dozens of flags from her storage bag.
"The Second Elder said that he hasn't used it in a long time. Before we can use it, we need to comb through the spirit runes with inner energy!" Yuan Yanying said.
"Hm! Yanying, I'll leave this to you!" Qin Yun said with a smile, "It's a very simple matter!"
Under Qin Yun's guidance, Yuan Yanying had mastered the art of combing spirit runes. It was indeed simple. After all, it was only a flag's spirit runes.
Qin Yun looked at the many flags waiting to be inscribed. He wished that he could immediately go to the Moon Profound Valley to fetch Lan Fengjin for help.
After all, he was still too young and when he was doing this repetitive, highly concentrated flag-making, he appeared to be rather impatient.
Fortunately, he was able to quickly overcome the impatience in his heart and quietly and earnestly draw.
He had Mental Resonance Xuan Pen, so when he was inscribing spirit runes, it was much faster.
Fifty flags meant that he had to inscribe the Nine Yang Spirit Convergence Array fifty times!
One could imagine how complicated a formation's spirit runes were. Now he wanted to condense it into a flag!
It took him five days to inscribe on one flag.
To other Spirit Inscription Masters, Qin Yun's speed was extremely fast!
Most importantly, other Inscription Masters were unable to inscribe such a complicated array on a small flag!
Actually, creating a set of flags did not need to be covered with the same inscriptions. It was possible to inscribe multiple sets of spirit runes required for a formation on different flags.
For example, the ten flags, he would use a set of spirit inscriptions! If a formation needed seven sets of spirit inscriptions to form, then each flag that was inscribed with a set of spirit inscriptions could achieve the effect of the formation.
Of course, the more scattered they were, the weaker the power of the flag formation would be.
And with Qin Yun's method, the power of the flag array was very strong.
The advantage of the Mental Resonance Xuan Pen was that it had the same quality as the user's.
After Qin Yun familiarized himself with a particular type of rune, he used the Xuan Pen to draw the rune. Then, he could directly draw it without thinking.
Under the miraculous control of the Mental Resonance Xuan Pen, his body consciously injected the power of his Blood Soul. It seemed to have fused with his hand and the brush, and naturally slid through his body, allowing him to quickly inscribe profound and complex spirit runes.
After making two flags, Qin Yun's speed increased!
Before he took five days to inscribe on a flag and now it was only three days!
Later on, he could create a flag in half a day!
Fifty flags, that was a total of only a little more than a month. It was much faster than he had expected!
After he was done, Qin Yun asked Yuan Yanying to invite the second elder to place the flags.
The moment the Second Elder came, he took out the golden flag that Qin Yun had forged and looked at it. He was so shocked that he nearly lost his jaw.
"This... this.... you made this?" The second elder's surprised expression made Yuan Yanying unable to restrain her laughter.
"Yes, I just made it!" Qin Yun said with a chuckle, "This is also my first time making a flag array, so Second Elder, please put the flag together!"
"The first time?" The Second Elder was shocked once again.
Of course, he could tell that they were very brand new flags. However, he never expected that they were actually made by Qin Yun for the first time.
Qin Yun said with a nod, "I can see that Yanying's irrigation process is very troublesome, so I wanted to make it easier for her!"
"If there's no accident, the flag array I made, coupled with the second elder's Rain Flag Formation, I think itt should be able to quickly gather and form the Nine Yang Spirit Liquid under the control of a person and then irrigate all the medicinal plants in the medicinal field like it's raining!"
The Second Elder's eyes turned round: "Xiao Yun, do you know what this means?"
"What does it mean? This should be very common, other Xuan sect must have it too!" Qin Yun smiled.
The Second Elder let out a long breath in shock and said, "This kind of flag array, only king grade sects have it! If we really succeeded, then that meant...we have a medicine garden that only a king level sect would have!"
"As for the other Xuan sects, they only have better Qi Gathering and Water Gathering Formation. They still have to be completed by a team and they can't complete a full set!"
Qin Yun said with a frown, "I feel that doing it step by step is similar to using a flag array to complete it automatically! I only wanted Yanying to not waste so much time and effort!"
When Yuan Yanying heard this, she chuckled happily.
The Second Elder shook his head and said, "It's completely different! Gather Qi, gather water and spray water; these are three steps. During the interval, a great deal of the spirit energy will dissipate, resulting in the final watering of the spirit liquid containing very little Nine Yang spirit energy!"
"If you can produce high quality spirit liquid in one go and you need less resources, it would be very cost-effective! It could also increase the number of times the medicine was watered, allowing the elixir to grow rapidly! The quality of the spiritual medicines will also be very good!"
"Moreover, there are some medicinal herbs that need to absorb many times before they can grow! If we have this flag array, then we can plant some spiritual medicines that will be difficult to grow!"
Qin Yun never expected that there were so many ways to grow elixirs.
Yuan Yanying also nodded her head, "Brother, this formation of yours can help our Nine Extinctions Gate rise quickly!"
"Let's stop talking and try it out quickly. Will it work?" The second elder was extremely excited as well. He hurriedly set up a flag array with Qin Yun in the medicinal garden.
It took them more than two hours to place down the formation flags.
At this moment, it was noon, the time when the nine suns were at their most violent!
"I need to place some purple coins in the middle to let the array absorb them and activate the spirit inscriptions!" When the Second Elder placed the flag, he had also asked Qin Yun about the production process.
As for Qin Yun's explanation of the process, it was very simple. It was as though he was describing a painting. It made the second elder feel like dying when he heard it.
Second Elder placed ten thousand purple coins in the middle of the medicine garden before nodding at Qin Yun.
Qin Yun activated the inscriptions in a flag and the entire Nine Yang Divine Rain Formation's flag lit up.
In next to no time, a layer of nine-colored clouds condensed in the sky above the medicine garden.
Crash!* It started raining!
The rain that fell down was golden in color, accompanied by nine colors of spiritual energy. It was a very pure Nine Yang Spirit Liquid!
Yuan Yanying was dancing with joy!
The Second Elder also entered the rain, opening his arms and laughing happily.
"It's a success, it's a success!" The Second Elder laughed heartily.
Only after less than an hour did the formation come to a halt.
The entire herb garden was enveloped in a layer of nine colors. It was extremely beautiful, as if it was a paradise on earth!
"Every time the great formation opens, it requires ten thousand purple coins! It was very worthwhile! Three times a day will make thirty thousand!" The Second Elder said.
"A month's time would require close to a million purple crystal coins, is that still a good deal?" Qin Yun was somewhat puzzled as he said with a frown.
"Xiao Yun, you might not know something but if it's watered like this, the spiritual medicine will only ripen once every half year and it can be sold for tens of millions of purple coins! This is a sure thing!" The Second Elder chuckled and said: "If you grow better spiritual medicines, you will be able to sell them at an even higher price!"
Qin Yun was also given a fright. He did not know much about pills. He never expected that the plants that Yuan Yanying watered everyday were so valuable!
