Chapter 2973: Unbelievable
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Celestial Kings were incredibly powerful. Duan Ling Tian was well aware of this due to the consumable Royal Grade Celestial Weapon. He had felt how formidable the Celestial Origin Energy and the Soul Energy of a Celestial King were. And yet, a mere Celestial Talisman could kill someone so powerful?
Huang Yuan Fei, the City Governor of Pa.s.sage City in the Supporting Fall Nation, continued to say, “Although most Celestial Emperors are capable of engraving such a deadly Celestial Talisman, due to how intricate the engravings are, most Celestial Talismans capable of killing Celestial Kings are engraved by t.i.tled Celestial Emperors!”
t.i.tled Celestial Emperor!
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes widened in shock as he inhaled sharply.
Duan Ling Tian had learned while he was in the borderlands that a Celestial Emperor must face various tests in the t.i.tle Temple and pa.s.s the tests in order to be acknowledged as the strongest Celestial Emperor and become a t.i.tled Celestial Emperor.
Back in the Southern Heaven Territory, the strongest celestial was a t.i.tled Celestial Lord who was known as the Southern Heaven Celestial Lord. However, even the strongest t.i.tled Celestial Lord was no match for the weakest Celestial Emperor.
“However, it’s said that the Celestial Kings killed by the Celestial Talismans engraved by t.i.tled Celestial Emperors are mainly weak Celestial Kings. They either haven’t comprehended the profundities of laws or the profundities they comprehended are weak.”
A wave of relief rose in Duan Ling Tian’s heart upon hearing Huang Yuan Fei’s words. This was still rather acceptable. He found it difficult to accept a Celestial Talisman capable of killing most Celestial Kings. How absurdly powerful!
“4,300 prominent Celestial Crystals!”
“4,500 prominent Celestial Crystals!”
The price of the Arrow Explosion Talisman continued to rise as Duan Ling Tian and Huang Yuan Fei conversed. In just a blink of an eye, the price had risen to 4,800 prominent Celestial Crystals.
Huang Yuan Fei said, “This Arrow Explosion Talisman seems like it’s engraved by a powerful Celestial King. Based on its powers and the fact that it can only be used once, it’s unlikely to fetch more than 5,000 prominent Celestial Crystals.”
Soon enough, Huang Yuan Fei’s words were proven to be true. The bidding stopped when the price reached 5,000 prominent Celestial Crystals.
Based on the conversation in the surroundings, it seemed like most people agreed with Huang Yuan Fei’s words.
“The Arrow Explosion Talisman is only useful for weaker celestials. Moreover, it can only be used once. 5,000 prominent Celestial Crystals are as high as the price could get.”
“It’s just silly to bid more than that!”
“That’s right! It’s worth about 5,000 prominent Celestial Crystals.”
Meanwhile, back on the auction stage, the grey-clad old man said indifferently, “5,000 prominent Celestial Crystals, going once… going twice… 5,000 prominent Celestial Crystals… Sold!”
The old man raised his hand and the Celestial Talisman shot out like a thunderbolt toward a middle-aged man who was dressed in a fine robe. After putting away the Celestial Talisman, the middle-aged man sent a Spatial Ring containing 5,000 prominent Celestial Crystal toward the grey-clad old man on the stage. The transaction was directly conducted on the spot.
“Next up is a mediocre Duke Grade Celestial Pill, the Explosive Origin Pill. The starting price of this Explosive Origin Pill is 5,000 prominent Celestial Crystals. ” The old man took out a pill bottle before taking out one pill to show to the crowd.
“The Explosive Origin Pill?” Duan Ling Tian raised an eyebrow.
The Explosive Origin Pill was a common Celestial Pill. The Explosive Origin Pill was available in different grades: the Duke Grade, the King Grade, and the Royal Grade. Then, under these three grades, they were further divided into inferior, mediocre, and superior grades. Based on this, it was easy to deduce that one had to be, at least, a supreme Duke Grade Celestial Alchemist to refine the Explosive Origin Pill.
‘A mediocre Duke Grade Explosive Origin Pill will boost a Celestial Duke’s Celestial Origin Energy to two stages higher for 15 minutes. However, the effect wouldn’t be so dramatic if a Nine Palaces Celestial Duke uses it since the Celestial Origin Energy wouldn’t be able to break through the boundary that separates a Celestial Duke from a Celestial King.’ As a Celestial Alchemist, Duan Ling Tian was, naturally, knowledgeable about the Explosive Origin Pill.
Duan Ling Tian was still lost in his thoughts as the price for the Explosive Origin Pill rose to 8,000 prominent Celestial Crystals. It was not surprising that the price rose this far since the Explosive Origin Pill was able to turn the tide during a critical moment in a battle between two Celestial Dukes. In the end, it was sold for 13,000 prominent Celestial Crystals.
The grey-clad old man continued to auction off more Celestial Talismans and Celestial Pills. The starting prices for the items were always higher than the previous ones.
None of the items put up for auction caught Duan Ling Tian’s attention until…
“The ninth item for auction will be a pair of Golden Nematodes. The starting bid is 30,000 prominent Celestial Crystals!” the grey-clad old man said.
A few seconds ticked by, and yet, no one bid for the Golden Nematodes yet.
“A pair of Golden Nematodes with a starting bid of 30,000 prominent Celestial Crystals. As far as I know, in the black market, a Golden Nematode usually costs 15,000 prominent Celestial Crystals. It seems like the Solitary Nation is basing the starting bid on that.”
“Well, the Golden Nematodes are highly coveted by the Emperors of the Supporting Fall Nation, the East Ming Nation, and the Moran Nation, after all. Since it’s so highly coveted, it’s only natural that it will rise in price. Moreover, the cost of the pair of Golden Nematodes won’t even put a dent in the three nations’ treasury.”
“That’s right. However, the Golden Nematode on the black market often has no buyer.”
The crowd was still discussing among themselves when a voice rang from the room where the people from the Supporting Fall Nation were in.
“30,000 prominent Celestial Crystals!” Huang Yuan Fei’s voice rang clearly in the air.
Huang Jia Long was taken aback. “Father, aren’t you being too hasty? This isn’t like you”
This was not Huang Jia Long’s first time attending an auction with his father. His father had never made the first bid even if it was an item he wanted.
Soon after, everyone, including Duan Ling Tian, was dumbfounded.
‘Wh-what’s going on?’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself, confused.
The people from the East Ming Nation and Moran Nation were strangely quiet.
The crowd could sense something was amiss as well; they looked at each other in confusion. After all, the three nations had come to the capital of the Solitary Nation specifically for this item. They were expecting a tense bidding contest between the three nations over the Golden Nematodes. However, contrary to everyone’s expectations, no one made a bid after Huang Yuan Fei had spoken.
“30,000 prominent Celestial Crystals, going once… 30,000 prominent Celestial Crystals, going twice…” The grey-clad old man who had remained indifferent all this time began to feel a slight panic rising in his heart. His eyes darted back and forth between the East Ming Nation’s room and the Moran Nation’s room. Alas, there was no sound at all. He was forced to end the auction. “30,000 prominent Celestial Crystals… going thrice… Sold!”
Just like that, the pair of Golden Nematodes fell into Huang Yuan Fei’s hands.
The crowd was in an uproar.
“What’s going on? Didn’t they say the Supporting Fall Nation, the East Ming Nation, and the Moran Nation are all here for the Golden Nematodes?”
“Who knows? Did they fall asleep?”
“I wonder what’s going through the minds of the people from the East Ming Nation and the Moran Nation.”
“What are they doing?”
In the Moran Nation’s room.
“Uncle Lian, why aren’t you bidding for the Golden Nematodes? Why are you stopping me from bidding? What’s going on?” The Seventh Prince of the Moran Nation fired one question after another as he looked at a n.o.ble blue-clad middle-aged man with a frown. The prince was clearly displeased based on his tone.
The middle-aged man was a powerful One Basic Celestial King who served the Emperor of the Moran Nation. Although he was dissatisfied with the seventh prince’s att.i.tude, he endured it.
Even if the Moran Nation successfully obtained the Golden Nematodes, the chances of them successfully refining the Profound Golden Pill was slim to none.
The middle-aged man looked at the Seventh Prince of the Moran Nation and the other people in the room before he calmly explained, “Huang Yuan Fei from the Supporting Fall Nation had sent me a message through Voice Transmission earlier. Therefore, I made a quick decision not to bid for the Golden Nematodes.” After he finished speaking, he sipped on his cup of tea.
In the East Ming Nation’s room.
A silver-clad young man frowned as he said impatiently to an old man who was clearly the leader of the group, “Old Hu, why are you stopping me from bidding for the Golden Nematodes? How are you going to explain this to my father when we return empty-handed? Did you even think about Brother Jue Yun?”
“Second Prince, as a member of the Imperial family, you should learn to maintain your composure like Young Master Ling,” the old man said as he looked at the silver-clad young man and a grey-clad young man sitting in a corner meaningfully.
The grey-clad young man’s expression was cold and distant. He seemed to be unaffected that the old man did not bid for the Golden Nematodes.
