Chapter 78: The Wind and Thunder Parturition Talisman Formation!
Translator: Sparrow_ Editor: Sparrow_
Lin Feng first entered into the trading system.
This time he had a clear goal and that was to try and find three suitable Tao techniques. To try his luck in the lottery system was naturally placed at the back, firstly he was going to find ones that were to his liking in the trading system.
Lin Feng saved up the 500 trading points rewarded from the Black Cloud Earth Palace side quest before and the 500 trading points rewarded from taking in Zhu Yi as his disciple. Now add the 500 trading points rewarded from taking in Wang Lin as his disciple, Lin Feng had currently saved up a total of 1500 points.
Compared to when the system was first initiated and the mere 300 points provided by the novice gift, Lin Feng could be considered relatively rich.
But Tao techniques were all expensive items, he still needs to plan carefully when trading them.
“Art of the Scattered Stars, secret Tao technique of the Way of the Stars, comprehending the rotation and movement of the stars in the heavens… This should be able to meet the requirement for “Heaven”, right?”. Lin Feng scanned the price: “800 trading points?”.
Lin Feng slightly knit his brow and then carefully searched in the trading system for a moment, but there was only the Tao technique of the Art of the Scattered Stars related to “Heaven”.
“How about we look at the other ones first.”. Lin Feng changed target and continued searching.
“Heavenly Wind Daoist Scripture, secret Tao technique of the Heavenly Wind Temple, comprehending the profound mysteries of the circulation of wind and cloud. One could obtain the Heaven Twister Gale skill from cultivation.”.
“Art of the Turbid Waves, secret Tao technique of the Turbid Waves School, a technique for simultaneous mastery of both water and earth spiritual energy… Water and earth coincide perfectly, sediment in lakes. Hmm, sounds good.”.
Sounding good was one thing, but the price made Lin Feng a little worried.
These two Tao techniques were the same price as the Art of the Scattered Stars. They all cost 800 trading points.
The three added together came to a grand total of 2400 trading points. Lin Feng laughed helplessly. Just then he felt like he could be considered a rich man, looking at things now he was still a poor guy.
“Let’s buy one first and then see if I can get lucky in the lottery. If all else fails, I have to do everything possible to get a side quest and earn some more trading points.”. Lin Feng pondered, at any rate, the system still had one year left for him.
The main quest this time was a one shot deal. As long as he gathered 8 suitable Tao techniques, he could merge and create his own, original fundamental Tao technique for his sect. Not like the last main quest where he had to find his four disciples one by one.
Thinking of the reward of the main quest, Lin Feng felt his heart blaze.
Even though power sources were not easy to find, the Demon Avatar’s might had given Lin Feng a deep impression. Should he complete the main quest again this time, the reward presumably wouldn’t be stingy either?
Lin Feng first paid 800 trading points in exchange for the Art of the Scattered Stars.
As he comprehended the Art of the Scattered Stars, a magnificent scene appeared in Lin Feng’s mind.
Like a completely clear night sky, the vast starry sky could be seen at a glance. The stars in the heavens flowed endlessly, thousands of millions of stars wandered and spun in front of Lin Feng one after another, rendering the most mysterious and magnificent scenes one by one.
Absentmindedly, Lin Feng felt like he was in a space of nothingness. Space did not have a boundary, time did not have an end, he just stood there silently flying and wandering with the stars beside him.
The disappearance and movement of every star seemed to harbor a principle of the universe.
But when Lin Feng wanted to probe the secrets within, they brushed past him and it was difficult to see the truth.
“The conception of this Tao technique is excellent. Millions of stars, each harboring a powerful and profound principle. But in the end, the person who created the Tao technique hadn’t reached that level, he could only scratch the surface. In the end, he only had a hazy understanding and but shook around a half bottle of vinegar, flaunting his half-assed knowledge.”.
Lin Feng shook his head in regret but didn’t take it to heart, because right then the black hole representing “Heaven” of the eight trigrams had already lit up with white light.
Before Lin Feng only had a guess that this Tao technique that comprehended the secrets of the stars could meet the requirement. But if he guessed wrong, those 800 big points would have gone completely down the drain.
But reality showed that the Art of the Scattered Stars met the system’s requirement and Lin Feng relaxed his mind.
Eight types of Tao techniques, now he has had already gathered six. Just two more and he could merge them together.
Coming out from the trading system, Lin Feng entered into the lottery system and prayed in his heart: “It would be the best if I could directly get one, then things would be very easy.”.
First, he looked at the wheel system, the three Tao techniques in it all do not meet the requirements.
Entering into the dice system, Lin Feng looked at the selected items. The first thing that entered his eyes was a Thunderous Echo Elixir.
“Holy cow.” Lin Feng breathed in and continued looking down. He saw the Heavenly Wind Daoist Scripture quietly placed in the number 12 grid.
Lin Feng was a bit divided. One cannot have both the fish and the bear paw. This kind of decision always makes one’s balls hurt.
But very soon, Lin Feng noticed an even greater ball-aching matter.
The Thunderous Echo Elixir’s number was 1, that was to say the dice had to roll a one to be able to get the pill.
… But the problem is, how can three dice roll a one? The smallest sum is a three.
Before he’s never encountered the situation where what he wanted was in 1 or 2, so Lin Feng didn’t really care and thus he only reacted over now. You actually can’t get one or two in this dice system, adding the two empty grids, there are actually four grids in the dice system where it was impossible to obtain the item within.
Lin Feng didn’t know whether to laugh or cry: “You stingy system, taking advantage of me even on this small matter?”.
But Lin Feng could accept it this time. The system essentially made his choice for him, which was to just go straight for the Heavenly Wind Daoist Scripture in number 12.
“12… 12… 12! Go!”.
Under the control of Lin Feng’s thought, the system threw the dice. The three dice started to rapidly spin on the light disk.
The first die stopped very soon. Lin Feng looked over and his heart sank half way down.
Lin Feng’s heart instantly tightened. The remaining two dice had to be a six and a five for him to be able to get the Heavenly Wind Daoist Scripture.
Very soon the second die stopped.
“Nice!”. Lin Feng clapped his hands, his eyes staring straight at the last die and repeatedly chanting: “Five, five… Five!”.
The die stopped.
Still a six…
The first was a one, the second was a six, the third… was also a six!
Lin Feng was silent for a moment and then exploded open: “Fu*k you motherfu*ker! You system, you’re retarded, your entire family’s retarded!”.
“Fu*k!”. Lin Feng left the system with a depressed face. He couldn’t even be bothered to see what exactly was in the number 13 grid.
At that time the system notification suddenly sounded beside his ears.
“Host has triggered random side quest, Wind & Thunder Sigil!”.
Lin Feng was dazed for a moment. When he returned to his senses, he checked what exactly he got.
That was a stone talisman the size of a palm. Sparse line patterns were engraved on top, ancient and grand.
Flowing Wind Sigil, the crown treasure of the Wind & Thunder School of the past. It was a pair with another Thunder Element Sigil. The two sigils combined could set up the Wind & Thunder Genesis Sigil Formation.
The Wind & Thunder Genesis Sigil Formation, wind and thunder rage, helping each other grow hand in hand.
Cultivating inside of the Wind & Thunder Genesis Sigil Formation, the cultivator could enjoy the nourishment of endless wind and thunder spiritual energy. They could get twice the result with half the effort and their cultivation speed far surpassed the average cultivator.
Lin Feng was dazed for a moment and then checked the side quest.
Random side quest, Wind & Thunder Sigil.
Quest Background: The Wind & Thunder Sigil was originally the crown treasure of the Wind & Thunder School. In itself, it did not have a lot of power, but the two combined as one could set up the Wind & Thunder Genesis Sigil Formation. This attracted the covetous eyes of other forces who went to rob it. Ultimately the Wind & Thunder School fell and the two sigils went missing.
Quest Objective: Head towards the great intersecting mountain range, the Sea of Storms where the Thunder Element Sigil is located. Use the bond between it and the Flowing Wind Sigil to find the Thunder Element Sigil.
Quest Time Limit: Three months, if not completed on time, the quest will be failed.
“Misfortune may be an actual blessing!”. Lin Feng remarked with a smile plastered on his face.
This Wind & Thunder Sigil may not have any combat power, but to use it in assisting in one’s cultivation, it was practically a cheat.
With this thing as compensation, his depression from not getting the Heavenly Wind Daoist Scripture has also swept away.
Not to mention he also triggered a side quest. Completing this side quest and obtaining the reward, he would be able to directly exchange a Tao technique from the trading system.
Lin Feng put away the Flowing Wind Sigil and calculated in his heart: “Find a way first to get a Thunderous Echo Elixir to heal Xiao Yan’s injury, and then head towards the great intersecting mountain, the Sea of Storms to find the Thunder Element Sigil.”.
Thinking along these lines, Lin Feng planned on going to check up on Monk Hui Kong who had been captured by the Demon Avatar.
Maybe this monk from the Great Thunderclap Temple might have a ready-made Thunderous Echo Elixir carried on him.
