War Sovereign Soaring The Heavens - Chapter 2847
Chapter 2847: It Suddenly Dawned on Her
Guan Qi Fei was certain Duan Ling Tian’s alchemy skills were not as great as Duan Ling Tian tried to make them believe they were.
Duan Ling Tian, who was beginning to heat the cauldron, said with a slight smile, “Just because I take a longer time to heat the cauldron, it doesn’t mean that I can’t refine the Overarching Heaven Pill.” When he finished speaking, the third form of the Chaos Divine Flame flew into the cauldron at lightning speed.
Flames rose inside the cauldron.
Everything was under Duan Ling Tian’s control.
Meanwhile, everyone’s attention was focused on Duan Ling Tian’s cauldron. However, about a quarter of an hour later, the crowd began to get distracted.
Many of the mediocre Celestial Alchemists and primitive Celestial Alchemists who had followed Guan Qi Fei here were whispering among themselves.
“The time it takes to heat a cauldron reflects the alchemist’s speed. There are no prominent Celestial Alchemists capable of refining Overarching Heaven Pills in the Six Southeastern Regions who take more than seven hours to heat a cauldron.”
“Yes. The speed of heating the cauldron not only shows the grade of a Celestial Fire, but it also shows the skills of a Celestial Alchemist. Both of these factors affect the time to heat a cauldron.”
“A high-level Celestial Alchemist with a high-grade Celestial Fire would definitely have a swift cauldron-heating speed. Since Duan Ling Tian takes more than ten hours to heat his cauldron, there’s no way he can refine the Overarching Heaven Pill!”
“He said it takes more than ten hours for him to heat the cauldron? How can he be so delusional to say he can refine Overarching Heaven Pill with such a slow heating speed? What a lunatic!”
“Who cares about what he said? He’s just a brat younger than 100 years old who lucked out and obtained a prominent Celestial Fire. He won’t be able to refine a prominent Celestial Pill at this age.”
“That’s right! I’m sure he can’t even refine ordinary prominent Celestial Pills, let alone the Overarching Heaven Pill that’s one of the most precious prominent Celestial Pills!”
The mediocre and primitive Celestial Alchemists were confident Duan Ling Tian could not refine Overarching Heaven Pills!
Since they were Celestial Alchemists, most people did not doubt their words, and their gazes toward Duan Ling Tian turned even more scornful.
“I really don’t know what’s going through his mind… He should just tell the truth if he really can’t refine the pills. Why is he trying to delay the inevitable?”
“If he keeps stalling, it’ll be even more embarrassing for him when he fails!”
“Yes! It’s not only him, but even the Tai Yi Celestial Sect will suffer from humiliation!”
“I really don’t know why the Old Ancestor of the Tai Yi Celestial Sect blindly supports him. I can’t believe the Old Ancestor agreed to use their sect’s Duke Grade Celestial Method and Divine Abilities as stakes!”
Duan Ling Tian clearly heard the discussions in the surroundings, but he paid them no mind. He had no intention of explaining himself. He was focused on refining the Overarching Heaven Pill without revealing his true heating speed and winning his bet with the Supporting Sun Celestial Sect and the Thousand Leaves Celestial Sect! At that time, he and the Tai Yi Celestial Sect would obtain an offensive-defensive Duke Grade Celestial Method and an offensive-movement Duke Grade Divine Ability. He Shan and Bai Ping, the Sect Leader of the Tai Yi Celestial Sect, had promised to give him priority to comprehend the double-trait Duke Grade Celestial Method and Divine Ability first.
Meanwhile, Lian Cheng Yi and Xiao Teng were slightly taken aback when they saw the calm expression on He Shan’s face. No hint of panic could be seen on He Shan’s face at all. He did not look like someone who was about to lose his sect’s treasured Duke Grade Celestial Method and Divine Abilities. Both of them exchanged a worried glance.
Lian Cheng Yi said through Voice Transmission, “Sect Master Xiao… Everything will go as planned, right?”
“I guess so… Both of us had investigated that Master Duan with our Divine Consciousness. There’s no doubt he’s not even 100 years old. At this age, even if he was lucky enough to obtain a prominent Celestial Fire, it’s highly unlikely for him to possess the skills to become a prominent Celestial Alchemist or refine prominent Celestial Pills, let alone one of the top prominent Celestial Pills, the Overarching Heaven Pill!” Xiao Teng responded through Voice Transmission. Apart from reassuring Lian Cheng Yi, his words also served to reassure himself.
“I hope you’re right… I just find it strange that Senior He Shan and the three prominent Celestial Alchemists from the Tai Yi Celestial Sect are so calm,” Lian Cheng Yi said apprehensively.
Xiao Teng instinctively turned to look at Situ Ming, Yang Chong, and Yu Zhong Jing. It was just as Lian Cheng Yi said, three of them looked calm as though they were not worried Duan Ling Tian would fail to refine the Overarching Heaven Pill. With this, the ominous feeling in his heart intensified. In the end, he said, “Let’s just wait while he heats the cauldron first… All the Celestial Alchemists present have said that among the prominent Celestial Alchemists capable of refining Overarching Heaven Pills in the Six Southeastern Regions, even the slowest of them takes seven hours at most to heat a cauldron. The young man just said he takes more than ten hours to heat a cauldron… Based on his own words, it’s impossible for him to refine Overarching Heaven Pill!”
“You’re right.” Lian Cheng Yi gradually felt more at ease after listening to Xiao Teng’s words.
Meanwhile, the crowd continued to stay outside the Tai Yi Celestial Sect’s shop. Everyone fell silent as they stared at Duan Ling Tian and the cauldron hovering in front of him. However, once in a while, there would be a commotion in the periphery of the crowd. This was caused by new people coming to watch the show. News of this matter had spread through Alchemy City like a wildfire after all. Almost everyone downtown of the city had heard about this matter. After about seven or eight hours, everyone in Alchemy City, except for those in closed-door cultivation, had heard about what was going on outside Tai Yi Celestial Sect’s shop.
As one of the top sects of the Six Southeastern Regions, the Thousand Spiders Celestial Sect from the Wasteland also had its own residence in Alchemy City.
The news of the incident outside of Tai Yi Celestial Sect’s shop had spread like a wildfire. It was only natural it had spread to the Thousand Spiders Celestial Sect’s residence as well.
In a spacious, quiet, and elegant courtyard, a green-clad girl registered a shocked expression on her face when she heard the news. Then, her expression turned disdainful as she said, “How dare that pretty boy lie about being able to refine the prominent Celestial Pill, the Overarching Heaven Pill? He’s not even 100 years old!”
A beautiful purple-clad woman frowned slightly as she said reproachfully, “Lyu Luo, this is the last time… Don’t be rude!”
Upon hearing this, the green-clad girl chuckled sheepishly before she said, “Senior Sister, I was too excited I forgot to address him by his name.”
Meanwhile, there was a third woman in the courtyard as well. The woman narrowed her eyes as she murmured to herself, “Overarching Heaven Pill? He… can refine the Overarching Heaven Pill? I heard master saying that the Tai Yi Celestial Sect had amassed a large number of Overarching Heaven Pills from an unknown source recently. As it turns out, it’s from him! No wonder… No wonder the three prominent Celestial Alchemists from the Tai Yi Celestial Sect acknowledge him as the Chief Celestial Alchemist of Tai Yi Celestial Sect.” Realization dawned on her at this moment.
Although the woman’s voice was not loud, it sounded clear in the quiet courtyard.
“Sister Shu Qiu… Are you saying the pretty bo… I mean, Duan Ling Tian, can refine the Overarching Heaven Pill?” the green-clad girl asked immediately. She was shocked.
Based on the three women’s words, their identities were clear. They were none other than Murong Bing, Zhou Shu Qiu, and Lyu Luo.
Murong Bing turned to look at Zhou Shu Qiu as well. Although Zhou Shu Qiu had told her that man was the Chief Celestial Alchemist of the Tai Yi Celestial Sect in the Wasteland, she did not know how skilled he was. She was surprised to find out he was capable of refining the Overarching Heaven Pill!
Even in the Compassionate Celestial Traveler Sect, only one prominent Celestial Alchemist was capable of refining the Overarching Heaven Pill. For that reason, that prominent Celestial Alchemist was given a high status in the Compassionate Celestial Traveler Sect. To a certain extent, that prominent Celestial Alchemist’s status was almost equal to her master’s.
Zhou Shu Qiu solemnly replied, “Although I’m not 100% certain, considering what I’ve heard, I’m, at least, 80% certain.”
After all, when Duan Ling Tian was strangely given the title of Chief Celestial Alchemist in the Tai Yi Celestial Sect, the three prominent Celestial Alchemists in the sect were, oddly, not dissatisfied. Moreover, they seemed to wholeheartedly acknowledge him as the Chief Celestial Alchemist of Tai Yi Celestial Sect. At that time, everyone in the Wasteland was baffled by that.
Now that Zhou Shu Qiu heard about the incident in the Tai Yi Celestial Sect’s shop, the puzzles began to fall in place. ‘If he can really refine the Overarching Heaven Pill… It makes sense why the three prominent Celestial Alchemists in the Tai Yi Celestial Sect easily accepted him. That’s why the three Prominent Celestial Alchemists continued staying in the sect even after he was made the Chief Celestial Alchemist of the Tai Yi Celestial Sect!’
