Two Hundred Thousand
True Thunderfire was used in previous translations for one of the flames in concoction of Nine Solar Lightning-Dragon Pill, now it’s changed to Lightning Flame.
True Dragon Fire > True Dragon Flame
Ignoring everyone’s surprised look, Jiang Chen composedly concocted pills. The grades of the pills were determined by the quality of the herbs. And all the herbs delivered by Han Village were very high in quality, as they wouldn’t dare send inferior quality herbs to the Prefecture.
However, all of these herbs were commonly seen, so only ordinary Immortal Pills could be produced from them, but because of its ordinariness, a lot of people demanded it. Different alchemist would concoct different grades of the same pill. Pills that were concocted using Jiang Chen’s Great Soul Derivation Technique, Lightning Flame as well as True Dragon Flame was no doubt the finest of the finest.
*Crack* *Crack* *Crack*
Crackling sounds were emitted incessantly as the herbs were melting down in rapid speed. The way Jiang Chen concocted those pills looked so casual and easy, and it seemed like there was no possibility that he would fail.
The whole scene turned silent, they were too busy staring at Jiang Chen. In their point of view, it was a miracle and an enjoyment to be able to see such a way of concoction.
Steward Wu, as well as the other guards climbed to their feet. They too were attracted by Jiang Chen’s action, as if they had forgotten about the pain in their bodies.
Yan Qingcheng’s eyes looked obsessed. Although she had no idea whether these pills would be a success or not, she was totally fascinated by the method of concoction.
A few minutes later, the sea of fire receded back into Jiang Chen’s body. Meanwhile, a strong fragrance of medicine filled the air, astonishing everyone around.
In front of him was a few dozen of pills, hovering in the air and constantly emitting brilliant lights. The fragrance of the pills were incomparably rich. Furthermore, these pills were colorful, beautiful and were divided into different categories. Every pill had the size of a thumb and its surface was smooth, exquisite and spotless.
“My god, a few dozen pills are concocted in such a short period of time. If I didn’t see this with my own eyes, I wouldn’t have believed it.”
“I never thought that there is such a concoction method in the Heavens and Earth. Brother Jiang is too amazing! Did you all see that? Every single pill shines like jade and the quality is the finest of the finest.”
Every villager’s eyes went wide, they couldn’t believe what they were seeing. Not just them, but also the people of the Prefecture. Every one of them were gaping at the scene. Yan Qingcheng’s gaze was glued on the hovering pills.
Yan Qingcheng grabbed one of the pills and examined it thoroughly. She then praised, “This Profound Yang Pill does not have any impurities. This is the finest grade that was produced from all the extracted essence of the herbs, worth 2000 low grade Immortal Meta Stones.”
“That’s right. I’ve never seen such a fine Profound Yang Pill. Two thousand low grade Immortal Meta Stones is just a conservative estimate. With ten Profound Yang Pills here, I believe the value is more than 20,000 low grade Immortal Meta Stones.”
“That’s the Floating Pill. It is highly beneficial to cultivators. The grade of this pill isn’t any lower than the Profound Yang Pill. One of these is also worth 2000. And with the total of ten, it is also worth more than 20,000 immortal stones.”
All the elders and guests were shocked. The pills that Jiang Chen had made were common pills. With their eyesight, they could naturally see the value of these pills. There were a total of six different types of pills concocted. Each of which has a high price. Summing it all, it’s definitely worth more than 100,000 low grade Immortal Meta Stones. From here, they could see that Jiang Chen wasn’t lying about the price.
“Elder Liu, go and get 200,000 low grade Immortal Meta Stones.” Yan Qingcheng said to an elder beside her.
“Yes, Big Miss.”
Elder Liu did not dare be disrespectful. Immediately, he disappeared at the gate of the Prefecture after he darted a glance at Jiang Chen. This time, his glance was now of respect instead of a glare.
No one in the scene disapproved Yan Qingcheng’s decision despite the value of the pills weren’t worth that much meta stones. The reason she offered the reward of 200,000 low grade stones without hesitation was because of Jiang Chen, he was a great treasure that couldn’t be measured by low grade Immortal Meta Stones. So what they wanted to do right now was to recruit Jiang Chen. If a terrifying alchemist like him was recruited by the other major powers in the city, they would surely suffer a great loss.
Although Yan City seemed peaceful on the surface, there were upheavals that were even greater than Fragrant Sky City behind those walls. Despite the Prefecture being the ruler of the city, there had been competition between them and the other strong major powers which were as strong as them.
A while later, Elder Liu returned with a grey storage pouch in his hand, and gave it to Yan Qingcheng.
She walked generously towards Jiang Chen and said, “Young Master Jiang, here’s 200,000 low grade Immortal Meta Stones as an apology for my underlings’ rash behaviors, and for all the pills you have concocted.”
After hearing this, Jiang Chen had to admit that Yan Qingcheng was good at winning people’s heart and responsible enough to bear the mistakes made by her subordinates. When she saw his extraordinary concoction methods, instead of berating and reprimanding her subordinates, she apologized personally despite her noble status. A female like her, who was also an absolute beauty, would be respected by all her underlings and they would be loyal to the Prefecture.
“My god, 200 000 Immortal stones of fortune…”
Han Cong felt his head spinning. The other villagers, including the knowledgeable and resourceful Chief, had the same expression. They knew very well how extreme two hundred thousand worth of fortune was.
“It’s 200 000 low grade Immortal Meta Stones. If Han Village can have all of these fortunes, our village improve by leaps and bounds and will rise above the neighboring villages.”
“What’re you thinking? These stones belong to Brother Jiang. If it wasn’t for him, I’m afraid we won’t even live. Ah Cong, you have done an extremely good job by saving Brother Jiang.”
“Brother Jiang has such a terrifying alchemy prowess and combat strength. His future achievement would be immeasurable. Today, with Big Miss Yang Qingcheng personally trying to recruit him, his status in Yan City will soar to an irreplaceable level. Ah Cong, you must regard him as your idol from now on.”
Every Han Villager was dumbfounded by the figure of 200,000, but they were smart enough to know that this had nothing to do with them. They knew that the Prefecture was being so generous mainly because they wanted to recruit Jiang Chen.
“In that case, I won’t deny it.”
Jiang Chen gave a faint smile and took the storage pouch. Since his arrival in the Immortal World, what he lacked the most was Immortal Meta Stones. So, he naturally wouldn’t refuse their offer. Additionally, this had improved his impression of Yan Qingcheng. He knew that it wouldn’t be a bad choice to befriend a major power like the Prefecture after his ascent to this world.
Seeing Jiang Chen accepting the offer, a smile was revealed on Yan Qingcheng’s face. She was worried that Jiang Chen would decline it, a top alchemist like Jiang Chen always had their own pride. If he did refuse her offer and apology, it was still understandable after her guards had offended him.
At this moment, Steward Wu and Huang Liu were completely frightened. They were standing there as stiff as a stick, not even daring to breath as they realized that they had just provoked an existence that they couldn’t afford to provoke. Given their status, their brains must have gone haywire to offend such a superior alchemist.
In this brief moment, all their hatred for Jiang Chen dissipated and they started to feel a sense of respect and gratitude from him. Even if Jiang Chen killed them, their deaths was nothing. The Prefecture would never go against a powerful alchemist because of them.
Using divine sense, the storage pouch was opened. The inside of the pouch was filled with low grade Immortal Meta Stones. He split the total amount into half, sending 100,000 stones into his Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. Due to the influence of the law of the Immortal World, only those formidable Divine Immortals had the ability to control the spatial force and connect it to their Qi Sea, allowing them to store items in their Qi Sea. Any expert below the Divine Immortal realm would use an external storage such as a spatial ring and storage pouch to carry items, but it was a different case for Jiang Chen. Now that twelve levels of the pagoda had been restored, all of the low grade Immortal Meta Stones had no problem being stored inside.
After a while, he approached Han Changling with his storage pouch and gave it to the Chief. “Chief, here’s 100,000 low grade Immortal Meta Stones. This is what Han Village deserves.”
Seeing what happened, Han Changling panicked, staring at the storage pouch in horror. His hands wouldn’t dare stretch near it.
“Brother Jiang, this is too much and they ought to be yours. This has nothing to do with Han Village.” Han Changling dared not to accept it.
