Chapter 865: Eclipse Cauldron versus Desolate Heaven Technique Disk Array
At this moment, Luo Kui had already taken out his treasured cauldron. It was three feet high and as it spun mid-air, Luo Kui's crossed his arms on his chest. He gave Yi Yun a haughty look and said, "Come on, I'm waiting for whatever you can teach!"
Luo Kui's treasured cauldron was made of an unknown metal. There were all sorts of patterns carved on it, making it look primitively simple.
Yi Yun glanced at Luo Kui's cauldron and he felt that it had to be worth a fortune.
The Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven's Desolate Heaven technique was not only different to the technique from the lower realms, even the tools used were completely different. In the Tian Yuan world, most Desolate Heaven techniques used disk arrays, not cauldrons.
Without a doubt, Luo Kui's cauldron was more advanced than the Tian Yuan world's disk arrays.
"Why are you looking at my Eclipse Cauldron? Are you scared silly from the ancient aura of the Eclipse Cauldron?" Luo Kui laughed.
The Eclipse Cauldron was an ancient Desolate Heaven Cauldron found in a ruin. It might not be famous in the Luo clan, but if it was placed in an auction, it was definitely an ancient treasure worth vying for.
Despite many of the young elites present not knowing the Desolate Heaven technique, they could tell from its aura that the Eclipse Cauldron was no ordinary item.
Yi Yun ignored Luo Kui. All he did was slowly take out a Desolate Heaven technique disk array.
It was a one-foot square disk array that came from the Tian Yuan world. It looked dusty and simple, and it was completely nondescript.
And in fact, the disk array was consistent in and out. Its quality was indeed nothing to speak of.
Yi Yun was not a professional Desolate Heaven Master after all. Although he brought a disk array used by Desolate Heaven Master with him, the disk array would not have been considered something impressive in the lower realm. In the 12 Empyrean Heavens, it would only appear even worse.
Seeing Yi Yun take out a Desolate Heaven technique disk array, Luo Kui was dumbfounded. This punk actually took such a joke of an item to compete with him?
Just the runic patterns carved on the disk array were not worth mentioning. It was not even enough to describe it as a heaven and earth difference. It was like two warrior sparring. One was using a divine weapon, while the other was using a kitchen knife. What's the point of fighting?
Empress Xuan also began to frown slightly at this moment. She had believed that in such an important occasion, Yi Yun definitely had something to rely on and he would not have pushed his face forward to be slapped.
Hence, Empress Xuan still had the illusion of hope, wishing that Yi Yun was truly a Desolate Heaven technique genius, allowing him to compete with Luo Kui with his lower realm background and his bone age of less than forty. But now, Yi Yun had taken out such a disk array that could enter the annals of wonders. He would only be able to demonstrate 30% of his full prowess.
She could not help but ask, "Yi Yun, don’t you have a desolate heaven cauldron? I can bestow one to you."
Yi Yun was from a lower realm, so it was normal for him to lack a desolate heaven cauldron. However, Empress Xuan never expected that Yi Yun would shake his head and say, "Thank you Your Majesty for bestowing a reward to me. Unfortunately, this lowly one has never used a desolate heaven cauldron, nor does this lowly one understand the mysteries within them. This lowly one will probably take a period of time to learn it, so it's more handy to use a disk array."
What Yi Yun said was the truth. Regardless of how good his perception was, he did not dare to claim that he could immediately use a desolate heaven cauldron without any practice.
With Yi Yun saying this, all the young elites present were dumbfounded.
Could Yi Yun not have been exposed to the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven's Desolate Heaven technique? He was planning on using the lower realm's Desolate Heaven technique to thrash Luo Kui?
Luo Kui stared at Yi Yun. Damn it, is this kid here to amuse him?
He felt that Yi Yun must have studied the Desolate Heaven technique in the lower realm and believed that he had matchless talent. Yi Yun must not be aware of how terrifying the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven's Desolate Heaven technique was. Competing with such a retard was a lowering of his posturing. It was rather meaningless to win.
He planned on trampling a princess, but he only managed to step on dog shit. Luo Kui did not even have the mood for this competition.
"Let's quickly begin. What bad luck!" Luo Kui said impatiently.
With a wave of his hand, a Fey beast bone was thrown into Yi Yun's hand.
"Come, 'advise' me. A third-grade Fey bone, I want to see what you can come up with."
Yi Yun flipped the Fey bone in his hand and said nonchalantly, "Just one Fey bone? Is there no spare?"
This Fey bone's quality obviously surpassed the ones from the lower realm. However, it was not too much an exaggeration. With Yi Yun's Desolate Heaven technique standard and the Purple Crystal's help, refining such a Fey bone was not difficult.
"No!" Luo Kui sneered and said, "You don't even have the confidence to refine a third-grade Fey bone in one shot. If your standard is this good, how can you be worthy to advise me?"
Yi Yun smiled and no longer spoke. He threw the Fey bone into the desolate heaven technique disk array and he began to activate its runic patterns.
Immediately, the runic patterns lit up. Yi Yun began to routinely form hand seals. The seals he formed were all ones that Su Jie taught him back in the lower realm.
The Tian Yuan world's desolate beast and the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven's Fey beasts were similar. Yi Yun speculated that it might have been possible that the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven's Fey beasts had somehow gone to the lower realm and began breeding with the wild beasts in the lower realms, eventually forming desolate beasts. Hence, the techniques that Su Jie taught him could similarly be used while refining a Fey bone.
However, in the eyes of a professional, these techniques were downright trash. It was just too simple. It was like a group of scholars attending an imperial examination turning back to see a child who had just began reading... a child who had been home-schooled to memorize the ‘Three Character Classic’. With this standard, he even had the nerve to say that he knew the Desolate Heaven technique?
Luo Kui was infuriated just looking at Yi Yun's clumsy performance.
This guy was truly an extremely ignorant hick!
He had believed that Yi Yun had something backing him for him to dare jump out, and he was still feeling afraid of failing miserably at an easy task.
But now, Yi Yun was beginning to refine the Fey bone. The hand seals he used were lousy, and the seals he formed didn't make sense. He found his original thoughts laughable considering what Yi Yun was using to back himself.
With Luo Kui's own experience, he could instantly judge that the relics refined by Yi Yun would be in the poor grade at best. This was determined from the hand seals that Yi Yun formed. It was impossible for it to be higher.
And for the same relic, if Luo Kui were to refine it, it would at least reach the ‘refined’ grade, or even approach the ‘outstanding’ grade!
In the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven, relics of the same grade would be ranked based on the outcome of the refinement, and they went from poor, ordinary, refined, outstanding, excellent, to spiritual emergence!
The outstanding grade was the limit for a low-grade relic. As for 'excellent' and 'spiritual emergence', that was an evaluation reserved only for high-grade relics.
Luo Kui wanted to be able to produce an outstanding third-grade relic at the banquet and astound everyone. But thinking about it, it was truly too difficult.
As Luo Kui was thinking, Yi Yun suddenly spoke. "Aren't you beginning?"
Yi Yun could speak to him while he was refining a relic?
Luo Kui was taken aback momentarily. However, he brushed it off immediately. The lower realm's techniques might be too simple, so it made it possible for him to speak while refining. He could even produce three cauldrons of relics and refine them at one go with such a lowly technique.
"It looks like you think you aren't dying fast enough. If that's the case, let me show you what the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven's Desolate Heaven technique is!"
