Chapter 537: The Approaching Martial Arts Competition
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Spiritual Treasure Palace allocated a massive space for the disciples to sell their items.
Any of the disciples of Celestial Spirit Sect could put their items up for sale here.
A fair amount of disciples set up their own stalls, but a majority of them could be found wandering around looking for treasures.
After Su Mo arrived, he found an empty spot and began taking out the weapons he had crafted.
“Weapons’ clearance sale! All at half-price! Lv 4 weapons only 10,000 Medium Spiritual Stones! Don’t miss this deal! All half-priced! Ignore them at your own loss…!”
Su mo shouted as he set up the stall.
His words caught the attention of everyone in the immediate area. No one had ever sold their items in this fashion before!
“Half-price? Is he for real?”
“Lv 4 weapons for only 10,000 Medium Spiritual Stones. That’s too cheap!”
“Let’s go and take a look!”
In mere moments, all the nearby disciples started crowding around Su Mo’s stall. There were several hundred of them.
In the blink of an eye, all the other stalls were deserted.
“What…?!” the other stall owners were dumbfounded.
At Su Mo’s stall, someone asked doubtfully, “Su Mo, are you really selling these items for only 10,000 Medium Spiritual Stones?” After all, even the average lower Lv 4 weapons had a market price of at least 20,000 Medium Spiritual Stones. his were really too cheap!
Su Mo had become a renowned person within Celestial Spirit Sect. He had made a name for himself and most of the disciples had, at the very least, heard about him.
“Of course! All Lv 4 weapons will be priced at only 10,000 Medium Spiritual Stones.” Su Mo replied with a smile.
Upon hearing this, the crowd started inspecting Su Mo’s weapons, and they were inwardly satisfied.
Although these weapons were slightly below average, they were indeed lower Lv 4 weapons.
The requests began immediately. “I want a long sword!”
“I want two long sabers!”
“I want all of them!”
All of the 50 plus weapons Su Mo had crafted were sold within seconds.
It was a natural response. Su Mo was asking for such a low price. How could anyone pass up on buying these weapons at half-price!
As it was, Su Mo was suffering a loss for selling the items at half-price.
He spent 800,000 Medium Spiritual Stones buying the ingredients for crafting these weapons, and he sold them for only 500,000 Medium Spiritual Stones. He suffered a loss of over 200,000 Medium Spiritual Stones.
However, Su Mo didn’t mind. His real aim had been to test his craftsmanship by making and selling these weapons. He had succeeded and was satisfied with his earnings.
“Medium Lv 5 weapons for 150,000 Medium Spiritual Stones!”
“Upper Lv 4 Cultivation Skill for 40,000 Medium Spiritual Stones!”
“Lower Lv 5 Martial Arts Techniques for 100,000 Medium Spiritual Stones!”
Su Mo continued to sell all his spoils at extremely low prices.
He was offering them at 20% below their market value. Again, all the items sold immediately.
“Gosh, so cheap?”
“I want this lower Lv 5 Martial Arts Technique!”
“I want this medium Lv 5 weapon!”
In less than 5 minutes, Su Mo had managed to sell all of his items, earning a profit of 6,200,000 Medium Spiritual Stones.
He closed his mobile shop and set out to purchase more crafting materials.
Meanwhile, the other stall owners were still struck with consternation by the sales tactics Su Mo had so blatantly demonstrated.
Can someone really sell stuff like that?
Su Mo’s talent may be ungodly, but he seems so stupid!
Isn’t he bearing a huge loss by doing that!
Everyone was speechless!
Su Mo went on a spending spree with the money he had just earned. He bought 5,000 catties of high-grade Dark Steel, as well as Violet Gold, Dark Element Crystal, Spiritual Gravel, Thunder Print Rock, and dozens of other crafting materials.
It was necessary that he purchased these materials to craft Upper Lv 4 weapons.
Su Mo spent a total of 3,500,000 Medium Spiritual Stones.
After leaving Spiritual Treasure Shop, Su Mo set out toward Martial Will Valley rather than returning to Towering Sky Peak.
He was only planning to start crafting again after the Martial Arts Competition at Nine Peaks.
The start of the competition was only over a month away. He wanted to take this time to advance his sword will to the third stage and hit Lv 7 Enlightenment Realm.
That was the only way he could compete against the other top-notch geniuses in the outer gate during the competition.
There wasn’t sufficient time to improve his craftsmanship, so he had to put that aside for a while.
Martial Will Valley looked the same as it always had. Massive weapon statues stood throughout the valley, and many disciples were scattered about learning Martial Will.
Su Mo went straight to the sword statue and sat down cross-legged, about 4,000 feet away.
This distance was his limit. The giant sword statue emitted intense Sword Will. The intensity seemed capable of tearing apart his body and soul.
Su Mo could use only his own Sword Will to protect himself. It was because his Sword Will had only reached Grand Completion of the 2nd stage that he had to stop at the 4,000 feet mark.
Su Mo closed his eyes and started contemplating Sword Will. He simultaneously began cultivating Scorched-Trees Divine Skill of wood property.
Teal streams of Spiritual Qi from the Wood property continuously cascaded upon Su Mo, painting him into a teal figure.
Su Mo’s Five Elemental Cultivation Skills were all at Lv 6. He was best versed in Nirvana Cultivation Method and Mountains-Weight Skill.
Su Mo was falling behind in the progress of the other three cultivation skills: Sky-burning Fire Skill; Vast Sea Skill; and Scorched-Trees Divine Skill.
This as well caused an imbalance in the Five Elements Force of his Five Elements Vital Spirit. The Gold property was the strongest, followed by the Earth property, while the other three elements lagged far behind.
The unbalanced Five Elements Force prevented him from unleashing the true power of his Grand Chaos Five Elements Skill.
Only after his Five Elements Force reached an equilibrium, could he begin trying to fuse them. Eventually he could restore them to their true state of chaos, turning them into Almighty Chaotic Force.
He would then be able to wield the terrifying and destructive, Chaotic Vital Spirit, freely.
If Su Mo could achieve that, his strength would definitely skyrocket!
Su Mo knew that if he could fuse the five elements to create the Chaotic Force, he could easily destroy martial artists at Lv 3 or 4 True Darkness Realm, even with his cultivation at Lv 6 Enlightenment Realm.
Of course, because Su Mo had not yet reached that level, he could only estimate the true power of the Chaotic Force.
Time passed by quickly while Su Mo was cultivating. His Sword Will was becoming steadily stronger.
After six days, Su Mo’s body trembled. His Sword Will finally reached the third stage.
As he opened his eyes, sword shadows burst out of his pupils and pierced through the air a few feet surrounding him.
After a short while, Su Mo closed his eyes again and continued to focus on his Sword Will.
Streams of Spiritual Qi from Su Mo’s Fire property beamed toward him as he started cultivating his Sky-burning Fire Skill.
An influx of disciples came and went as time passed in the Martial Will Valley.
As the Martial Arts Competition at Nine Peaks approached, many Outer Disciples who were training independently, started returning to Celestial Spirit Sect.
After a month, Su Mo finally left Martial Will Valley.
