Chapter 511 Everything Bought
“The Primordial Stone is the toughest weapon refinement material in the outer realm. Even a full-powered strike from a Seventh Tribulation Eminence can’t damage it at all,” continued the silver-haired woman. “In the face of time, many Tribulation treasures will gradually be damaged without a Master maintaining them. As for the Primordial Stone, it has an Eternal characteristic. Even after billions of years, it remains flawless.”
“A full-powered strike from a Seventh Tribulation Eminence can’t damage it?”
Many cultivators with little experience were dumbfounded when they heard this. They carefully looked at the round, smooth stone that was the size of a baby’s fist. They could only see such treasures doing the Treasure Auctions; otherwise, they had no way of seeing such valuable items during their everyday lives.
This was also why many Supremacies came to the Treasure Auction despite not being able to afford any of the items being sold.
The Primordial Stone is actually so attractive to the Chaos Hole. It’s as though it’s an instinctive attraction? Meng Chuan had carefully read his sect’s dossiers before leaving Archean Eon Realm. Thus, he naturally knew about the famous Primordial Star. In the outer realm, there were countless types of stars. The most common examples were Grand Yang Star, Grand Yin Star, the mysterious Darkstar, and the Seamless Star. The Godfiend cultivation system’s Great Solar realm, Darkstar realm, and Seamless realm’s names had all originated from the stars in the outer realm.
To ordinary cultivators, a Chaos Hole was the most terrifying celestial body. This was the reason why Meng Chuan named the new unknown realm he had reached the Chaos Hole realm.
However, legend had it that the most mysterious star was the Primordial Star. Only Eighth Tribulation Eminences could discover and enter a Primordial Star. Eighth Tribulation Eminences could easily mine a pile of Primordial Stones. However, the stones that were available to the vast majority of the public were tiny in comparison. They were also extremely expensive! After all, only an Eighth Tribulation Eminence could mine them.
Primordial Stones were mostly commonly refined into Tribulation treasures. Ancestral Master Archean Eon had recorded a refining method for Primordial Stones—Myriad Star Refinement Art. This refinement method required one to gather 10,000 Grand Yin Stars and 10,000 Grand Yang Stars. These stars would then be used to set up an altar. Only by using a sacrificial method could a Primordial Stone automatically disintegrate. After that, one could refine the Primordial Stone into a Tribulation treasure. It was typically used to refine Seventh Tribulation treasures.
As for Eighth Tribulation treasures? Every Eighth Tribulation treasure’s creation process was extremely difficult. One needed to chance upon a fortuitous encounter to refine one.
“The raw refinement material, Primordial Stone, has a starting price of 360 Outer Realm Essence Crystals,” said the silver-haired woman with a smile.
A voice immediately rang out. “370 cubes.” An old, white-haired perfected Imperial Lord stared at the Primordial Stone.
“380 cubes.” “385 cubes.”
There were consecutive bids.
Meng Chuan continued to stare at it, not in a hurry to bid.
He didn’t panic! He knew that although Primordial Stones were rare and precioushaving a price comparable to a Sixth Tribulation treasure despite its small size-one could still purchase them from various places. This was because every Eighth Tribulation Eminence that had existed in the River of Spacetime’s long history would typically excavate a massive number of Primordial Stones to leave in their homeworldshigh-level worlds. Although it took quite some time for these Primordial Stones to be available for sale, one could still purchase some if they were diligent in searching for them.
Eternal Tower had Primordial Stones for sale.
Meng Chuan remembered that he had seen two raw Primordial Stones for sale when he was scanning through Eternal Tower’s treasures. One Primordial Stone was slightly larger than the other, and its price was 760 Outer Realm Essence Crystals. The other was much smaller, and its price was only 200 Outer Realm Essence Crystals.
“410 cubes.” One cultivator after another bid on the Primordial Stone. These cultivators weren’t in desperate need of the stone because not everyone could use it as material for artifact refinement. Many of them participated in the Treasure Auction because they wanted to buy low and sell high.
Meng Chuan finally said, “430 cubes.”
He increased the price by 20 cubes in one go, causing many cultivators to hesitate.
The hall fell silent.
One count, two counts…
Meng Chuan waited silently.
Three counts were up! As the other cultivators in the hall hesitated, time passed.
“Primordial Stone, sold for 430 cubes.” The silver-haired woman smiled radiantly. “The next treasure, Fire Raven Plume.”
I bought it. Meng Chuan heaved a sigh of relief.
Following that, Meng Chuan scrutinized the showcased treasures in an appreciative manner. He stared at the exotic flowers, precious materials, powerful treasures, special treasures… These were rather common.
Cosmos Crystals, Void Transference Talismans, and precious treasures like Archean Eon Sect’s Heart Questioning Bead were not for sale anywhere.
Seventh Tribulation Eminences swept up all the vast outer realm’s most precious items first! Sixth Tribulation Eminences also competed for these precious treasures.
Meng Chuan had also heard that although Eighth Tribulation Eminences might no longer exist in their high-leveled homeworlds, the cultivators from those worlds would sell some Primordial Stones once in a while.
This made a high-level world very wealthy. They were also willing to sell Primordial Stones because they were just one of the legacies a high-level world had.
If it was said that cultivators in middle-level worlds had a sense of superiority when facing lower-level world cultivators, then cultivators in high-level worlds were richer than many Tribulation Eminences. It was difficult to pry into their homeworld’s secrets. High-level worlds had powerful cultivation systems and powerful defensive treasures… It was as though every high-level world expert would face their peers as if they were an emperor to a peasant.
The difference in heritage was too great. Only when one reached the Fifth Tribulation realm would a high-level world’s experts take them seriously. Such disdain was inevitable. After all, their worlds had produced an Eighth Tribulation Eminence.
The Treasure Auction finally ended after 12 hours.
In one of Black Dragon Palace’s halls.
“This is the Primordial Stone.” The silver-haired woman personally came to close the trade with Meng Chuan. She was in charge of all the treasures that were worth more than 100 cubes. She let an imperial Lord close the trades of the cheaper treasures. This was because most of the treasures sold in the Treasure Auction were from other cultivators. Thus, no mistakes could be made.
“430 Outer Realm Essence Crystals.” With a flip of his hand, Meng Chuan produced 430 floating Essence Crystals.
The silver-haired woman smiled. She took the Outer Realm Essence Crystals, and Meng Chuan took the Primordial Stone.
“Ordinary storage treasures can’t store Primordial Stones. One has to have a sufficiently stable spatial treasure to store it,” reminded the silver-haired woman before leaving
Meng Chuan obviously knew that. Whether it was his Spatial Pagoda or Fiend Prison, they could store the Primordial Stone. Primordial Stone. Although Meng Chuan’s dantian was filled with longing, he still controlled himself.
After leaving Black Dragon Palace, Meng Chuan headed for Eternal Tower.
In one of Eternal Tower’s fifth-floor halls.
A large number of Sixth Tribulation treasure phantoms appeared in the sky above the hall.
“I want to buy this treasure.” Meng Chuan pointed at a star-shaped world. It was the Myriad Flower Realm, a Sixth Tribulation treasure. “Please wait a moment, Imperial Lord.” The attendant was somewhat surprised as he immediately invited a female Imperial Lord over.
The female Imperial Lord smiled at Meng Chuan. “Imperial Lord, you wish to buy Myriad Flower Realm?”
“Yes, but I don’t need all of Myriad Flower Realm’s flowers. I’ll sell the ones I don’t need to Eternal Tower,” said Meng Chuan.
“You just want Myriad Flower Realm itself, and not the flowers?” The female Imperial Lord was somewhat surprised. “Wait a moment. Our Eternal Tower needs to do an audit for a while.”
Meng Chuan nodded slightly.
Many rare flowers were extremely valuable. For example, the Lightning Five-Colored Flower had sold for over 300 cubes during the Treasure Auction. The flowers in Myriad Flower Realm were naturally not as precious as the Lightning Five-Colored Flower. However, there were many of them! The total price he could sell them for wouldn’t be too low once added together.
“Our Eternal Tower has done an audit. Our Eternal Building is willing to purchase all of Myriad Flower Realm’s flowers for 180 Outer Realm Essence Crystals,” said the female Imperial Lord. “Myriad Flower Realm by itself costs 320 cubes of Outer Realm Essence Crystals.”
“Alright.” Meng Chuan didn’t say anything else.
Eternal Tower had its own pricing system. There was no way to bargain for treasures below the Seventh Tribulation realm.
In terms of time flow acceleration, the Myriad Flower Realm was much inferior to the Ashen Palace, but it wasn’t bad. It still met Meng Chuan’s requirements. “Myriad Flower Realm’s original owner happens to be in Heaven Peak River System. Imperial Lord, you only need to wait for two hours before the Myriad Flower Realm arrives,” said the female Imperial Lord with a smile.
Meng Chuan revealed a look of surprise. He thought he would have needed to wait for months!
The Treasure Auction usually attracted many Tribulation Eminences. Some Tribulation Eminences had treasures they needed others to sell on their behalf, while others had gatherings. From the looks of it, Myriad Flower Realm’s original owner had also arrived. “How much can this Sixth Tribulation treasure robe pay towards it?” With a flip of his hand, Meng Chuan took out one of the three precious treasures left behind by Eminence Pang Ming. Meng Chuan naturally didn’t dare take out the most precious Seventh Tribulation calabash. The remaining two items… The sledgehammer was too distinctive. It was Eminence Pang Ming’s trademark weapon. On the other hand, the robe didn’t have any specific characteristics that could link Meng Chuan to Eminence Pang Ming.
Due to the robe being a protective treasure, it was quite expensive. Eternal Tower bought it for 500 Outer Realm Essence Crystals.
After handing over the robe, he left with Myriad Flower Realm and 180 Outer Realm Essence Crystals. Meng Chuan left Eternal Tower delighted. I’ve bought everything!
It was safest to dispose of goods at Eternal Tower.
After all, two Sixth Tribulation Eminences were Eminence Pang Ming’s mortal enemies! A Sixth Tribulation Eminence didn’t have the right to make Eternal Tower expose their customers’ information. Furthermore, Eternal Tower wouldn’t investigate every customer’s true identity. This was to maintain Eternal Tower’s credibility in the outer realm, allowing them to continue doing business.
After returning to his cave abode, Meng Chuan quickly entered a chamber.
With a wave of his hand, he released a light-emitting star into the chamber. This tiny star was extremely beautiful. It was crystalline, but in reality, it contained Myriad Flower Realm.
The dazzling star remained suspended in the middle of the chamber. Meng Chuan had already entered Myriad Flower Realm.
Myriad Flower Realm. Meng Chuan looked around the grotto-heaven. The grotto-heaven was filled with flowers and plants. They were very beautiful. Of course, the remaining flowers and plants were all ordinary. All the precious flowers had been plucked and removed.
He landed on the grass and sat cross-legged. With a flip of his hand, he took out the Primordial Stone.
Meng Chuan looked at the round Primordial Stone in his palm. Primordial Stone… The moment he took it out, the Chaos Hole in his dantian once again let out a greedy yearning for it. His Chaos Hole wanted to devour it.
