Chapter 621: Penniless
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo and Shan Gu talked about craftsmanship for a full day and a full night.
Shan Gu was not stingy in giving Su Mo some very practical and useful crafting advice. He taught Su Mo patiently.
Su Mo shared his insights about craftsmanship and some of the content from the crafting Legacy.
The elder was extremely surprised to find out that Su Mo was so proficient at such a young age.
He took another look at Su Mo!
Su Mo had given him the crafting method and formula for the King Kong Shield. It made him wild with joy.
The Sky-sea Pavilion could craft several of these shields. It was easy to craft and not expensive. This meant a huge profit.
It was a pity that it was only a shield, not a regular weapon such as a saber or sword; otherwise, the profit would be unimaginable.
“Elder Shan, I would like to buy a great deal of materials, and I’m wondering if the pavilion has them.”
Su Mo asked at the end of the conversation.
Su Mo had to get the materials prepared before he would be able to craft the Natal Spiritual Sword.
“Oh, tell me what you want.” Shan Gu smiled gently.
With a flip of the hand he took out a blank bundle of jade slips and stuck them to his forehead.
He used his Mind to copy the list of materials onto the jade slips.
He didn’t copy all the materials just to be cautious.
He had picked more than 300 rare materials and planned to buy the remaining 200 common materials somewhere else himself.
In this way he could avoid leaking the formula of the Natal Spiritual Sword.
Su Mo then handed the jade slips to Shan Gu.
Shan Gu’s eyebrows knitted as he read the content.
Su Mo’s face fell. “Even the Sky-sea Pavilion doesn’t have the materials in stock?”
Actually, he had not heard of 90% of the materials, so he was not sure if they had them.
“Elder Shan, do you have the materials?” Su Mo asked uneasily.
As the largest trade firm in the East Continent, even in the Firmament and Continent, if they didn’t have the materials, it would be extremely hard for him to find them!
The elder sighed. “Among the 350 materials on your list, we have about 200 of them!”
He looked at Su Mo with keen eyes and asked, “Su Mo, what are you going to craft? I haven’t even heard of some of these materials!”
He was surprised and shocked by the list.
“Materials not known by a King level craftsman like me… Is he going to craft an Emperor Divine Weapon?”
“Haha! I’m just collecting them for someone else. He didn’t tell me what weapon he’s going to craft!”
Su Mo had to lie. He could not tell others that he was going to craft a Natal Spiritual Sword!
“Okay then!” Shan Gu nodded slightly when he realized that Su Mo was not willing to tell.
He took the jade slips and said, “I’m telling the others to bring the materials that we do have to you. As for the others, I’ll keep an eye out for them in the future.”
“Thank you very much, Elder Shan!” Su Mo saluted with hands folded.
He didn’t expect a man in Shan Gu’s position to take care of him this much!
Shan Gu shook his head and laughed. “Haha! You’re welcome!”
He knew that Su Mo was extraordinary and would have unimaginable achievements in craftsmanship, so he wanted to get close to Su Mo.
He left the room to give the order.
After 10 minutes, someone brought a storage ring to Su Mo.
“Here are 208 of the materials on your list. There is a decent amount of each type!” Shan Gu smiled.
Su Mo took a glimpse inside the ring and found there was enough to craft two Natal Spiritual Swords.
Su Mo asked, “How much are they, Elder Shan?”
It was not Shan Gu that ran the Sky-sea Pavilion after all. They were not free of charge.
The elder thought for a while and said, “Normally, they would charge 410,000 Upper Spiritual Stones. But since you’ve become our honorary craftsman, you enjoy a 70% discount. So, you only need to pay 287,000 Upper Spiritual Stones.”
Su Mo gasped when he heard the number.
“It’s so fu*king expensive!”
He only had 110,000 Upper Spiritual Stones!
Fortunately, he had crafted more than 200 Lv 5 weapons recently; plus the treasures he had taken from the craftsman in the Blaze Tavern. Together they should be enough to cover it.
“Elder Shan, how many stones are these worth?” Su Mo took out the weapons he had crafted.
The elder started to price them.
15 minutes later, Su Mo said farewell to Shan Gu and left the Craft Tower alone.
Now, he was completely out of stones.
He had sold all the weapons he’d crafted and all the items in the craftsman’s ring to buy the materials for the Natal Spiritual Sword.
Even so, he had been short 10,000 Upper Spiritual Stones.
The elder had spared him the stones, which made him grateful.
Although it was only 10,000 stones, Su Mo bore this favor in mind.
The elder also wanted him to live here for some time. But Su Mo had refused politely. He could not afford to waste time here.
The Craftsmanship Contest had ended already, and he was not interested in who the winner was.
He was painfully wondering how to earn some stones!
He was so fu*king short of stones!
He needed stones to improve his cultivation, physical strength, and Martial Soul. He needed stones to craft weapons. Life was so tough without stones!
He thought about looting craftsmen, but quickly dismissed this idea. He would make many enemies if he did this.
He did not stay in Wuling City. He flew away as soon as he left the Craft Tower.
While flying in the sky, he considered going back to the Celestialspirit Sect and decided not to.
He had to earn some stones before he could go back to the sect.
All of a sudden, two figures flashed out from the clouds and blocked his way.
