Chapter 1147: I Don’t Believe I Can’t Refine You!

“Hey, stop daydreaming, do you have it?” Seeing that Feng Lanwu and Xiao Ru were in a daze, Xu Que couldn’t help but urge them.
The two of them looked at each other, their faces filled with confusion. Then they looked at Xu Que and shook their heads.
“No?” Xu Que frowned and responded, “Forget it, if you don’t have it, I’ll ask later!”
He slammed the door shut.
Feng Lanwu and Xiao Ru were even more confused as they looked at each other again.
If we don’t have it, he’ll ask later?
That’s a solution?
If we don’t have it means we don’t have it, what’s the difference if he asks at a later time?
The two of them were nearly being driven crazy by Xu Que. They hadn’t met anyone as weird as him in their lifetimes. He’s crazy, right?
At the same time, Xu Que returned to his cramped little room and entered the System store again.Yes, the System Store had formulas for Equipment Refining, but those formulas were worth at least tens of thousands of Acting Tough Points—it was too expensive.
Xu Que could feel his heart aching if he spent the price they wanted on it and so he had gone to ask Feng Lanwu. But since they didn’t have it, he couldn’t waste his time!
Nine Soul Heavenly Frost Sting? Xu Que looked at the first item on the list of the First Grade Magic Weapon Formulas and shook his head instantaneously.
What’s there to train with? The sting is so narrow and small; this isn’t your Act-Tough Saint’s style!
Heavenly Fire Meteor Hammer? Uh, this is not bad. It’s as thick and huge as your Act-Tough Saint, but…it’ll exhaust too much of my materials, forget it, forget it!
Five Elements Sacred Decree? Da*n it, this is such good stuff! Suddenly, Xu Que’s eyes were beaming with interest. His gaze was fixed onto the sheet of paper listed under the First Grade Magic Weapon.
That kind of Five Elements Sacred Decree was similar to Five Elements Amulet and Five Elements Spell Flag; it had the effect like the Five Elements Seal. But the Amulet was a one-time exhaustive item, while Spell Flag needed time and Spirit Stone to set up before its use. If he could refine that magical weapon, that Five Elements Sacred Decree could unleash its effect whenever he wanted and it had an extraordinary attacking power!
Of course, the most cost-effective thing was that although a weapon was a First Grade magic weapon, if the Five Elements Sacred Decree was used together its power could be completely comparable to a Second Grade magic weapon!
“Interesting, I choose you! 18,000 Acting Tough Points? I’m buying this!” Xu Que swung his hand and exchanged for the Equipment Refining formula!
That 18,000 Acting Tough Points he thought was well-worth it. After all, when the Five Elements Sacred Decree was refined, he could use it too. Moreover, he had the physique of Five Elements Celestial Spiritual Roots which he could use to maximize the power of the Five Elements Sacred Decree. It was simply a tailor-made magic weapon for him!
At the same time, he was confident that the Acting Tough Points he spent on the formula of Five Elements Sacred Decree could be earned back from Feng Lanwu and Xiao Ru!
“Tut, tut, tut. Let me first identify these materials!”
With the formula in his hand, Xu Que sat cross-legged on the ground and started to examine it seriously.
He had all the materials needed for the Five Elements Sacred Decree and with his experience and identity as a Nine Star Equipment Refining Master, Xu Que could remember the exact amount of materials and the sequence of refining. But because of his serious and careful nature, Xu Que took a few more looks at the formula to remember all the details of it. When he was sure that he remembered the whole refining process, he expended all his energy and concentration on the Rune Mark shown on the formula.
He owned the Mystical Fires and his Soul Strength and Taoist Connotation were strong enough, so he was confident of its completion. After all, it was only a First Grade magic weapon, which could be refined by a First Grade Equipment Forging Grandmaster.
Xu Que was currently a Nine Star Equipment Refining Master, and the next level was a First Grade Equipment Forging Grandmaster, and hence the material extraction and fusing of a level beyond his level wasn’t too difficult. As long as he had practiced several times, he could master it.
But the most difficult of all was the engraving of Rune Marks toward the end of the refinement. First of all, remembering the Rune Marks was troublesome, even if you had a photographic memory. The Rune Marks needed to be sketched from the beginning to the end; line by line, dot by dot, as he drew it in his mind, following closely the pattern, and he couldn’t stop halfway, otherwise what he had done before would be futile. He would completely forget what the pattern looked like!
Only by mastering it skillfully and accomplishing it in one go could he then remember everything in detail. It was basically very difficult for ordinary people to reach that step; they might not be able to do it even in their lifetimes! There were geniuses in Pill Refining and Equipment Refining. They were naturally more sensitive to that kind of Rune Marks and could remember faster than normal people! Of course, some people were good at memorizing the Rune Marks of Equipment Refining, while others were good at the Rune Marks of Pill Refining. Generally, few people could master two kinds of skills at the same time!
However, Xu Que had an easier way. He found that he could skip that part completely because the System could help him to complete that step accurately without the need for him to waste time in remembering.
The only thing that Xu Que needed was his Soul Strength and Taoist Connotation. Only when the Soul Strength and Taoist Connotation were strong enough, could he firmly engrave the Rune Marks when the materials were fusing.
Tut, this part is quite sh*tty. I can’t cheat and skip this. Unless I have the means to make my Soul Strength and Taoist Connotation stronger, it’s absolutely impossible to refine any Inferior Celestial Artifact! Xu Que frowned.
But the next moment, the corners of his lips rose. But it’s more than enough to deal with a Fifth Grade magic weapon with your Act-Tough Saint’s Soul Strength and Taoist Connotation!
Xu Que stood up and came forward to his Smithing Table.
He inhaled a deep breath, raised his arm, shook his palm slightly, and a gentle Celestial Core Power surged out in an instant. It enveloped some tungsten and refined iron stone beside the Smithing Table and suspended them in front of him!
The next moment, Xu Que’s palm spurted out a black Mystical Fire and the extreme temperature instantly permeated the whole room. If he didn’t control the energy of the Mystical Fire, he was afraid that everything in the whole room would be burned into ashes in an instant!
The extreme temperature of the Mystical Fire was very strong, but, under the control of Xu Que, the tungsten and refined iron stone were successfully wrapped within it and was burning.
Pssh! Pssh! Pssh!
Several pieces of tungsten and refined iron stone immediately emitted plumes of black smoke, rapidly melting into a dark liquid at a speed visible to the naked eye.
Xu Que looked very serious as he increased the temperature of the Mystical Fire slightly. The dark liquid shrank in an instant, at the same time, the impurities discharged from the liquid surged out as black gas, and the blackness of the liquid began to decrease gradually! The black liquid was turning clear and transparent and all of a sudden the Mystical Fire shook a little.
Accompanied by a muffled sound, the whole mass of metal-liquid exploded on the spot; it turned into a wisp of ash as it evaporated and dissipated!
“F*ck!” Xu Que immediately let out a scream.
He had made a slight mistake earlier. In that kind of mental pressure due to high concentration, there could always be a second of laxity. Unexpectedly, a slight mistake could cause the temperature of the Mystical Fire to change slightly; it even directly destroyed the liquid extracted from the tungsten and refined iron stone!
Obviously, the process of Equipment Refining was far less simple than Xu Que had thought. Although the most time-consuming Rune Marks could be skipped with the System’s help, the whole process of refining was still tough!
“Huh! I don’t believe I can’t refine you!” Xu Que exhaled a long breath and prepared himself to start afresh. He controlled the Mystical Fire and enveloped some tungsten and refined iron stone within it. He had started his refinement again!
