Chapter 425: Magic Inscriptions of Star Rank
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
In the World of Cultivators, the exchange rate between the Spirit Stones of low and medium quality was 100 to 1.
A hundred Spirit Stones of low quality equalled to one Spirit Stone of medium quality, and a hundred Spirit Stones of medium quality equalled to one Spirit Stone of high quality.
Xu Que had looted many treasure vaults and imperial tombs and had thus obtained around a few million Spirit Stones of medium quality, which meant a few hundreds of millions of Spirit Stones of low quality.
Moreover, he had around a few million Spirit Stones of high quality and tens of thousands of top ones. He was like a walking treasure vault. His fortune could outweigh the fortune of two or three countries put together.
Seeing this, everyone was shocked.
Who is he? He even thinks eight million Spirit Stones is cheap? Does he have a rich dad?
The middle-aged man of the Zhai Bao Ge was thinking the same thing. He had expected Xu Que to bargain with him…
This young man is really…
The man hurriedly said, “Young man, why not pay a visit to my store?”
“Good! Show me the way. Anyone who wants to sell his magic inscriptions can come to me!” Xu Que replied.
He quickly picked up all the stones on the ground and left with the middle-aged man.
The Zhai Bao Ge was located in the fringes of the Imperial City. It was not very large, and was at most as big as a small room. There were a few bookshelves inside.
“Young man, all the magic inscriptions of the Black and Yellow Ranks are all in the shelves. As for that Earth Rank one, since it is very precious, I always take it with me. Have a look,” the man said, taking out a jade bamboo slip. Then he handed it to Xu Que.
Xu Que scanned it with his Soul Strength and found that the inscriptions were all about swords and things alike. He immediately lost interest and decided to let the System recycle it.
The man was surprised when he saw Xu Que shaking his head. He then asked, “Young man, what is wrong?”
“Nothing. It is just the inscriptions in this book are a bit lame. Anyway, I will take them. Here are the stones.” Xu Que said while taking out eight hundred Spirit Stones of high quality.
The middle-aged man was surprised by his generosity.
Normally, only people of high rank possessed Spirit Stones of high quality. He had never thought that the young man in front of him would be so generous.
It seems that this young man is someone of high rank!
Xu Que stood in front of the bookshelf and put all the books into the system storage. Then he ordered the System to recycle all of them.
Ding! “‘Water Cloud Mind’ has been recycled. The reward is 20 Skill Essence.”
Ding! “‘Sea Controlling Palm’ has been recycled. The reward is 19 Skill Essence.”
Ding! “‘Blue Water Inscription’ has been recycled. The reward is 30 Skill Essence.”
Soon, all the magic inscriptions, including the one of the Earth Rank, had been recycled.
Suddenly, the System stopped and a notification rang.
Ding! “There are some magic inscriptions of the Star Rank in the book ‘Heavenly Water Sword’, should the process of recycling stop?”
“What? A magic inscription of Star Rank? I have never heard of this before,” Xu Que said.
He had thought that there were only four Ranks in total—Black, Yellow, Earth and Sky.
After hearing this, Xu Que got very excited and could not keep calm.
The Nine Secrets and the Buddha’s Fiery Lotus, which are two very powerful magic inscriptions, are of the Sky Rank. The inscription of the Star Rank must be even more powerful.
Ding! “If the host upgrades the System to version 4.0, the inscriptions of Star Rank will show up in the System store.”
“Give me that book of Star Rank!” Xu Que did not want to upgrade the System since it would cost him about twenty thousand Acting Tough Points. He only wanted to find out what sort of magic inscriptions could be put into the category of Star Rank, which had to be higher than Sky Rank.
Ding! “The ‘Heavenly Water Sword’ is already stored in the system storage.”
He immediately took it out from his storage.
The System said that a few magic inscriptions were mixed in with the other content of the ‘Heavenly Water Sword’, how can I find them?
Seeing Xu Que holding that book, the middle-aged man then said, “Young man, are you interested in swordplay? This book is very common. I bought it from an overseas seller. With the stones you have, you can go to the auction and buy some magic inscriptions of Sky Rank.”
“Okay. You can leave now. If you want to sell magic inscriptions again, remember to come to me,” Xu Que said.
The man was about to leave. Then he turned back and put a thousand Spirit Stones of low quality on the desk.
“By the way. This is the street fee of this month.”
“What?! Street fee?” Xu Que stopped the middle-aged man.
“You don’t know about this? Anyone who is doing business in the Imperial City has to pay the street fee to the Gang of Twelve every month.”
“How dare they! Anyway, you take them back. I do not intend to continue running this store. I will teach them a lesson for you sake.” Xu Que waved his hand.
Hearing this, the man said: “don’t say that! You will put yourself in danger. One member in the Gang of Twelve is the relative of the royal family, he is the only son of the third Duke. Even the Water Empress dares not punish him!”
“No way! I heard that the Water Empress is very decent and has been managing this country very well. How can this sort of person not be punished?” Xu Que felt interested.
The man sighed. “both the late King and the few dukes did not have many offspring. During the war between us and the Metal Nation, most of their offspring died. Currently, the third duke has only one son, who can still produce ‘pure’ offspring for the royal family. Although the Water Empress is now ruling the country, she is still a woman, and her bloodline will not be pure. That is why the Water Empress does not punish him.”
“Men are superior to women? This sort of idea is completely wrong and should be abolished. You should leave now.” Xu Que cursed a bit and began to study that book again.
He sat in the Zhai Bao Ge and studied the book for a long time, but failed to find the inscriptions he needed.
He summoned the System and asked, “Are you sure you’re not joking? Where are the magic inscriptions of the Star Rank?”
Ding! “The inscriptions are buried in the sentences in the book. To decipher it, you need to spend one hundred Acting Tough Points.”
“Fine! You really are greedy! Help me to decipher it and then put it into a jade bamboo slip!”
He could not wait to find out what the inscription of Star Rank was like.
Ding! “Already deciphered. You have lost a hundred and ten Acting Tough Points.”
“What?! You just said ‘one hundred Acting Tough Points’, why did you charge me an extra ten points?”
Ding! “Making the jade bamboo slip costs ten points.”
