Chapter 38: Blood Refinement Pellets
Translator: Panda_Penn Editor: Chrissy
Heaven Kylin Sword, which was a Xuan Artifact of the Earth Grade!
Even it was broken with a piece cut off, but it was still of very special material. Lu Li had killed so many Iron Spur Wolves using it without leaving any crack or scratch. As such, one could imagine how rigid it must be.
Now, the small white beast was chewing and eating the Heaven Kylin Sword?
Lu Li thought for a moment that he was dreaming this. He pinched his own thigh hard to make sure that he was not dreaming. After that, he jumped up and cried out, "Little White, stop doing it, no… stop eating it!"
Seeing Lu Li had woken up, Little White wagged its tail and ran towards Lu Li. Lu Li picked up the Heaven Kylin Sword. After making sure that only a small piece was bitten off, he felt relieved. This cracked sword was crucial to him now since it could enhance his ability to some degree.
The door was pushed open. Lu Ling had gotten out of bed for some time now. She stared at Lu Li in confusion and asked, "What are you doing shouting so early in the morning?"
"Sis, look!" Lu Li held up the Heaven Kylin Sword and pointed to Little White. "Little White chewed a corner of the Heave Kylin Sword."
Lu Ling put on a different expression now. She and Lu Li looked towards Little White who was still wagging its tail fawningly and felt like they were looking at a monster instead.
This little guy could chew Heaven Kylin Sword. If it were to bite a person on the neck or head, the person would die instantly without a doubt.
"So, it is really a Xuan Beast of high rank."
Lu Ling’s eyes lit up and continued, "Lu Li, didn’t you just mention that you have some contribution points? Later, you go and find Cheng Qu and go to the Hall of Weapon to trade for some broken Xuan Artifacts. Whatever Little White wants, you just satisfy it. As long as it can grow up quickly, it doesn’t even matter should it eat the Heaven Kylin Sword."
What was so important about a broken sword? As long as Little White could grow, it would make a powerful helper.
Of course, this was clear to Lu Li. Putting the Heaven Kylin Sword on his back, Lu Li got up and went to washing and rinsing. Rushing down some breakfast, when Lu Li was just about to go out and find Cheng Qu, the latter came to the former.
"Lu Li, you have accomplished your mission successfully. Now you are an official Guest Warrior of the Liu Family."
Cheng Qu gave him a white Token and said while pointing to it, "Try to use your Xuan Energy on it. In it are records your contribution points you got from the Frigid Cloud Mountain."
Lu Li tried to move his Xuan Energy on the Token. Sure enough, a character symbolizing "Guest" lit up on the white Token, followed by a series of numbers.
Cheng Qu explained with some envy, "Lu Li, this time, you have found a mystical grass of the Fifth Rank and you are the main contributor. So, you have gotten 1100 contribution points. Also, you fought boldly and with power. Lady Yi and Patriarch Hong had reported to the family and you are granted with another 300 contribution points. You are good. You have just joined the Family, and you have already received more than 1000 contribution points. Many people can’t accumulate so many in even a year or two."
Lu Li secretly nodded in consent. Lady Yi and Patriarch Hong did not lie to him. They really did convert the accomplishment of finding the Seven-leafed Heaven Cloud Grass into contribution points for him. He thought about it and asked, "What are the things that are tradable using contribution points?"
Cheng Qu explained, "As long as you have enough contribution points, you can even buy the Di Long Tribe. I remember a tribe is likely 100,000 contribution points if I’m right. That is to say, if you have 100,000 contribution points, you can ask your family to make you the Chief of the Di Long Tribe."
Cheng Qu added, "Xuan Artifacts, pellets, Xuan Skills, secret cultivation books, mystical materials and even the place of clan patriarchs can be traded with contribution points. Take my position as an example. As long as you have 10,000 points, you can trade for it."
Lu Li instantly said he did not dare to trade for this position. Then Cheng Qu asked Lu Li to stay in the Guest Clan and do not leave the Liu Family at will. Zhao Family and Liu Family may start a war. An Internal Clan Patriarch of the Liu Family had already given orders to prepare for them to be combat ready and prepare to go to war with the Zhao Family at any time.
Lu Li, of course, would not wander out if there was no need. He actually would love to stay in the Guest Clan quietly for some time to cultivate. He was confident that he could make it to the peak of Xuan Wu Realm easily.
After Cheng Qu left, Lu Li asked Lu Ling, "Sis, what should I do with these contribution points? Should I trade for some Xuan Skills? A real Xuan Artifact and just let Little White eat this?"
Lu Ling decisively said, "Lu Li, other than being gaudy, low-level Xuan Skills don’t have much else of use. It’s better for you trade for some high-level pellets, the increasing strength kind. I don’t think you need to trade for Xuan Artifact for how. You can help Little White to get some broken Xuan Artifacts."
"High-level pellets of strength enhancing type?"
Lu Li was not thick-headed and he understood Lu Ling’s meaning quickly. He saw many warriors at the Xuan Wu Realm have fabulous Xuan Skills but weaker than him with regards to combat abilities. He was even confident to hurt warriors at the late-stage of the Xuan Wu Realm.
"Absolute strength can overwhelm any gaudy Xuan Skills!"
Bringing Little White with him, Lu Li left the Guest Clan. He put Little White in the jute bag because it was a Xuan Beast of high rank. Should someone cover it, there would be big trouble.
He asked around about the location of the Hall of Pellets and entered a big attic. After presenting his ID Token, he asked something to the elder guarding the Hall of Pellets.
"Pellets that can increase your strength?"
The elder offered some explanation. Lu Li felt a bit upset. There were three kinds of pellets that could enhance a person’s strength: one was the Body Refinement Pellet, the lowest level, and it was cheap: only five contribution points for one. Lu Li actually had some left on him. The second kind was the Blood Refinement Pellet of the Fifth Rank of the Human Grade. It was much more potent than the Body Refinement Pellet, yet one pellet would cost 30 contribution points. The third kind was Blood Conversion Pellet, however, all the contribution points Lu Li got were not enough to trade for one of these.
Pellets, Xuan Artifacts, Secret Cultivation Books were all divided in three grades: Heaven, Earth and Human Grade. There were nine ranks of each grade. For a Third-rank Family like the Liu Family, maybe the highest level of the weapons, pellets and secrete books were only of the Earth Grade.
Lu Li considered about it and said clenching his teeth, "Please get twenty Blood Refinement Pellets for me."
The elder hesitated for a bit and explained, "Pellets to refine one’s body, if taken too many, the efficacy will diminish. You want to trade for twenty a time. Actually, more than half will go to waste. Also…the cultivation of warriors, the essence lies in Xuan Energy and Realms. There is not much meaning in just having a strong body."
Lu Li understood it all but he insisted on getting the Blood Refinement Pellet. The old man had no choice but to trade twenty Blood Refinement Pellets for him and send him off like he was an idiot…
Lu Li walked to the Hall of Weapons. It was still Patriarch He who was guarding there. Seeing Lu Li, Patriarch He frowned. But he was surprised when he saw Lu Li took out his Token. He asked in doubt, "You bloke. It’s been just a couple of day, where did you manage to get so many contribution points?"
Lu Li smiled and explained randomly while making an obeisance by cupping his hand in the other before his chest, "Lord, I want to go to that place I was in last time and trade for some abandoned Xuan Artifact."
"Abandoned Xuan Artifact?"
Patriarch He also looked at Lu Li as if he were looking at a fool in front of him. Why were Xuan Artifacts so treasured? It was because it could increase the combat ability of warriors. Abandoned Xuan Artifacts were not Xuan Artifacts anymore. Why would he want it? Beside, didn’t Lu Li already have the Heaven Kylin Sword?
Lu Li did not elaborate. Patriarch He opened up the attic and waved at will, "Go inside. Bring out whatever you want."
All were abandoned Xuan Artifacts inside. Patriarch He didn’t bother to go in. He just left Lu Li to go through among the weapons by himself.
After he got inside, Lu Li did start hunting through the piles. But he was putting on an act. Only after Patriarch He went into the main hall of the Hall of Weapons did Lu Li let Little White out from the jute bag. He pointed to the abandoned Xuan Artifacts piling on the ground and said, "Little White, which ones do you like to eat? Have at it!"
Little White’s eyes instantly kindled. It grabbed onto one broken dagger with its two tiny claws and wanted to start eating right away. Lu Li hastily stopped it, picked the dagger up, and let Little White continue to look.
