The trip to the spirit cave had been dangerous, but it had been equally rewarding.
Aside from the increase in his strength, Lin Shen had collected a lot of the spiritual dust needed to refine the Spirit Pills.
He filled more than ten porcelain bottles.
Upon hearing Lin Shen’s words, before Ai Jingting could speak, Xie Jingsheng laughed and said, “Junior Brother Lin, you’ve found the right person. Other pills aside Junior Sister Ai is among the top three in the pill pavilion when it comes to Cast Spirit Pills!
“You probably don’t know yet. Junior Sister Ai’s master is the Deputy Headmaster of the sect’s Alchemy and Tool Division. She’s a well-known Alchemy Grandmaster. Half of the sect’s Cast Spirit Pills were made by her!”
Lin Shen looked at Ai Jingting in surprise.
As soon as he heard the name of the Alchemy and Tool Division, he knew that it was related to alchemy and weapon refinement.
A place like that was of utmost importance to any sect.
Although the Deputy Headmaster of the Alchemy and Tool Division sounded similar to Elder Ji’s title, the former’s status in the sect was probably much higher than the latter.
Ai Jingting usually kept a low profile, but she had such a shocking background.
With such a master around, no one in the academy would dare offend her.
“Senior Brother Xie, don’t flatter me.”
Ai Jingting smiled. Then, she looked at Lin Shen and said gently,
“Senior Brother Lin, you saved my life. I’m grateful and have been thinking about how to repay you. I feel I’m taking advantage of you if all you want is some Cast Spirit Pills!”
Lin Shen laughed and said, “I’m not sure about that.”
As he spoke, he reached out and brushed the back of the crane. In an instant, more than ten porcelain bottles appeared in front of everyone.
“These are…” Xie Jingsheng reacted the fastest. As if he had thought of something, his eyes widened.
“That’s right.” Lin Shen nodded calmly. “These are all spirit dust.”
Ai Jingting and the others were also shocked. They looked at the porcelain bottles in front of them with their mouths agape.
If these porcelain bottles were filled with spirit dust… How many Earth Essences would he have to kill to gather them?
Everyone couldn’t help but take a deep breath. They looked at Lin Shen in shock.
It seemed that while Lin Shen was radio-silent, he actually went to the few places marked on the map that were filled with spiritual monsters.
After a while, Ai Jingting slowly came back to her senses, but there was no hesitation on her face as she nodded solemnly.
“Senior Brother Lin, don’t worry. Leave the refinement of the Cast Spirit Pills to me!”
As soon as Ai Jingting finished speaking, Xie Jingsheng suddenly chuckled.
“Junior Brother Lin also saved my life. I can’t let Junior Sister Ai do all the work. Apart from the spirit dust, he’ll also need a lot of supplementary herbs to refine the Cast Spirit Pills. I’ll take care of those!”
As soon as he said this, Mu Chuanhua, Fu Weifang, and the others also spoke up.
“Count me in!”
Even those disciples from the lower house joined in.
Cultivators valued karma the most. Lin Shen had saved their lives. If they didn’t repay this kindness, they wouldn’t be able to live with that debt.
Lin Shen naturally understood this, so he didn’t refuse the offer.
After all, he could save the time and energy to collect materials this way. Why should he say no?
By the time they agreed on the time to collect the pills, Dragonside City was already right in front of them.
After returning to the Nine Yang Academy, everyone went their separate ways.
Lin Shen went straight back to the upper house. After activating the restriction, he went to the cultivation room. He sat down cross-legged, took out a pile of storage rings, and placed them in front of him.
These storage rings were all obtained from the Blood Sea Sect disciples. There were a total of twelve of them.
Lin Shen first picked up Min Shun’s storage ring and examined the contents.
Naturally, he was most concerned about the Cast Spirit Pills.
After counting them, Lin Shen had another 35 Cast Spirit Pills.
“Good. It’s enough for my clones to forge another four to five spirit meridians!”
Lin Shen smiled happily.
As for the rest of the treasures, talismans, and enchanted armaments, Lin Shen quickly scanned through them and didn’t find anything valuable, so he casually put them aside.
He continued to count the remaining storage rings. Unfortunately, these Blood Sea Sect disciples were far inferior to Min Shun. In total, they only had more than 50 Cast Spirit Pills.
After counting the spoils of war, the number of Cast Spirit Pills in Lin Shen’s hands increased to 108!
“And the Mystic Essence Liquid!”
With a thought from Lin Shen, the Mystic Essence Liquid appeared in his palm.
Looking at the spiritual liquid that was emitting a faint light in the porcelain bottle, a glint flashed in his eyes.
“I hope the effect of this Mystic Essence Liquid is really as powerful as Senior Brother Xie said!”
Without any delay, Lin Shen summoned his Extreme Intelligence Will Hurt clone and let it consume a drop of Mystic Essence Liquid before starting to cultivate.
Lin Shen also consumed the Cast Spirit Pills and began to forge his spirit meridians.
Before his clones could reach the limit of their spirit meridians, he had to reach the limit of his own before he could start fusing them.
Time passed quickly as he immersed himself in cultivation.
In the blink of an eye, a month had passed.
In the training room, Lin Shen opened his eyes, and a bitter smile flashed across his face.
“Seven spirit meridians…”
In a month, he had consumed 64 Cast Spirit Pills and forged a total of four new spirit meridians, pushing the total number of spirit meridians to seven.
However, after that, no matter how much he cultivated and how many more pills he consumed, he couldn’t forge a new spirit meridian.
Clearly, seven spirit meridians were already his limit!
“I have so little talent!”
Lin Shen laughed self-deprecatingly.
A cultivator had to have at least nine spirit meridians to become a cultivator master. This also meant that if he didn’t have a clone, he would probably never be able to become a cultivator master in his life!
Unless he took the unorthodox path like Leng Guangting!
After sighing for a moment, Lin Shen restrained his emotions and looked at the Extreme Intelligence Will Hurt clone opposite him.
Compared to him, the Extreme Intelligence Will Hurt clone was much better at forging spirit meridians.
He had to admit that the effect of the Mystic Essence Liquid was indeed much better than the Cast Spirit Pills.
Just one drop of Mystic Essence Liquid allowed the Extreme Intelligence Will Hurt clone to forge nine spirit meridians, increasing the total number of spirit meridians to fifteen.
After that, the Extreme Intelligence Will Hurt clone consumed another seven drops of Mystic Flower Liquid and forged 25 spirit meridians.
It only hit the bottleneck when it had forty spirit meridians in total.
“Looks like forty spirit meridians are the limit…”
Lin Shen shook his head slightly.
The Extreme Intelligence Will Hurt clone had enough talent and could be considered a peerless genius in the cultivation world.
Even so, it had only forged forty spirit meridians and was still five spirit meridians away from achieving the first-grade spirit meridian!
That showed how difficult it was to forge a first-grade spirit meridian!
No wonder Nine Suns Sect hadn’t had a cultivator who had forged a first-grade spirit meridian for so many years!
“Fortunately, I still have my clones!”
Lin Shen’s eyes flashed with excitement.
He and the Extreme Intelligence Will Hurt clone had both reached the upper limit. If they continued cultivating, the number wouldn’t increase. Then, it was time to fuse!
Since the Extreme Intelligence Will Hurt clone had already fused with him once, when he summoned it again, it actually already had two spirit meridians.
In other words, there were only 38 new spirit meridians.
If the fusion was successful, the seven spirit meridians in Lin Shen’s body and the 38 extra spirit meridians in the Extreme Intelligence Will Hurt clone would be enough to increase the total number of spirit meridians to 45, fulfilling the requirements for a first-grade spirit meridian in one go!
Taking a deep breath, Lin Shen composed himself. Then, with a thought, the Extreme Intelligence Will Hurt clone in front of him slowly dissipated.
The moment the clone completely disappeared, Lin Shen suddenly trembled, and endless mystic sounds suddenly came from his body!
It rang out thirty-eight times!
When the sound stopped, Lin Shen focused on his inner vision and was pleasantly surprised to discover that there were indeed 38 new spirit meridians in his body!
He now had 45 spirit meridians in total!
