Following a Hundred Years of Cultivation, I'm dying Before I Got Cheats

Chapter 5

Purchasing Talisman-Making Materials

In half a month, he only managed to complete 15% of the mission.

It seemed that it would take some time to reach 100%.


It just so happened that he had just broken through to the ninth level of Qi Refinement and still needed to consolidate his realm.

Therefore, Jiang Chengxuan continued his seclusion.

He was not afraid of being disturbed.

This was because before he went into seclusion, he had already paid the rent for the cave abode for a year.

At the same time, he activated the protective array of the cave abode.

His intention of not wanting to be disturbed was very clear.

If anyone still came to disturb him for no reason at this moment, they would definitely become enemies.

Just like that.

More than half a year had passed.

When Jiang Chengxuan ended his seclusion, he had already consolidated the ninth level of Qi Refinement.

Looking at his mission progress, it was 100% completed.

[Congratulations, host. You have completed a hundred circulations. You have received +1 constitution.]

+1 Constitution?

Jiang Chengxuan was a little surprised.

He did not expect the reward this time to actually increase his constitution.

This was really unexpected.

As everyone knew, in the cultivation world, there were two things that were very difficult to change.

One was comprehension, and the other was constitution.

Jiang Chengxuan tried to sense the changes in his body and realized that his spiritual root had not changed at all. It was still False Spiritual Roots of metal, wood, water, fire, and earth.

Why don’t I try to cultivate?

With that in mind, Jiang Chengxuan started to circulate the Origin Returning Technique again.

A few days later, Jiang Chengxuan opened his eyes.

He was a little excited.

As expected, the system was not fooling him.

At this moment, his circulation speed was obviously 20% faster than before.

At the same time, the spiritual qi he could absorb in one cycle was 20% more than before.

With the two of them combined, Jiang Chengxuan’s cultivation speed was noticeably faster than before.

And this was only the effect of having slightly increased his constitution.

He really could not imagine those genius cultivators, especially the ones with the legendary Heavenly Spiritual Root.

How fast was their cultivation speed?

No wonder the various cultivation sects and families valued those disciples with good cultivation aptitude.

That difference was really not something that could be bridged with hard work.

Fortunately, I have System Daddy around.

No matter how big the gap was, he would sooner or later be able to level up and catch up with the others.

At the thought of this, Jiang Chengxuan couldn’t help but look forward to the next mission.

However, two hours passed, four hours passed, a day passed, and two days passed…

The system did not issue another mission.

This made Jiang Chengxuan a little anxious.

Fortunately, he still remembered the system’s initial introduction. This system will issue missions at irregular intervals.

He just did not know how long he would have to wait.

He hoped it wouldn’t be too long.

At the thought of this, Jiang Chengxuan did not intend to stay in the cave abode anymore. Instead, he planned to go out and buy some materials for making talismans.

In the past, Jiang Chengxuan was a mid-grade Level 1 Talisman Craftsman.

This was also the only skill he had back then.

It was also the means by which he supported himself financially to reach the eighth level of Qi Refinement.

Now, although the spirit stones he had accumulated could still last him for a while, it was far from enough to support him until he reached the perfected stage of the ninth level of Qi Refinement.

Therefore, he needed to sell talismans to make his pocket fuller.

At the same time, he wanted to see if anything new had happened in the past six months.

When he came out, Jiang Chengxuan immediately realized that there seemed to be a lot more people in the Ganyang Market than half a year ago.

After asking around, it turned out that the reason why there were more people in the Ganyang Market now was because of that ruin.

It was said that not long ago, another Qi Refinement cultivator successfully joined the Ganyang Sect through the treasures he obtained from the ruin. Moreover, he became an inner disciple and successfully shook off his identity as an independent cultivator.

In addition, many people had obtained a lot of cultivation resources from that ruin.

This immediately attracted independant cultivators from everywhere.

The Ganyang Market naturally became a place for these independant cultivators to gather and rest.

Jiang Chengxuan arrived at a shop called the Treasure Pavilion.

Immediately, a middle-aged man in his forties came over and asked Jiang Chengxuan enthusiastically what he wanted.

The Treasure Pavillion was not as famous as the Cloud Pavilion.

There were not as many things sold in the Treasure Pavilion.

However, the advantage was that the things here were cheaper than the ones in the Cloud Pavilion.

What Jiang Chengxuan wanted were some low-grade talisman-making materials.

Naturally, there was no need to be particular about the quality.

Soon, the middle-aged man brought over the things Jiang Chengxuan wanted.

It cost him a total of 32 spirit stones.

If he shopped in the Cloud Pavilion, the price was at least four or five times more expensive.

Although four or five spirit stones did not seem to be a lot, it was still a lot for low-level Qi Refinement cultivators like them.

Just as Jiang Chengxuan was about to leave, a familiar voice suddenly came from behind him.

“Eh? Fellow Daoist Jiang?”

Jiang Chengxuan turned around and saw Xu Haichuan and his wife, who he had not seen for more than half a year, behind him.

At this moment, the two of them could not hide the joy on their faces.

Did something good happen?

Jiang Chengxuan said with a smile, “So it’s Fellow Daoist Xu and Fellow Daoist Mei. Long time no see.”

“That’s right, Fellow Daoist Jiang. It’s been a long time since we last met.”

Xu Haichuan and his wife smiled and nodded.

“By the way, Fellow Daoist Jiang, what have you been busy with these days?”

“Wait. You… you broke through to the ninth level of Qi Refinement?”

It was only at this moment that Xu Haichuan and his wife seemed to have noticed the change in Jiang Chengxuan. A trace of surprise appeared on their faces, and then they cupped their hands.

“I didn’t expect you to have already broken through to the ninth level of Qi Refinement. There’s hope for you to reach the Foundation Establishment realm in the future.”


Jiang Chengxuan shook his head modestly.

“I was just lucky.”

“The two of you look like something good has happened.”

Xu Haichuan and Mei Hongyan looked at each other.

Xu Haichuan said, “Fellow Daoist Jiang, is that so obvious?”

“Previously, the two of us entered the ruin and were lucky to find something.

“Fellow Daoist Jiang, if you don’t mind, why don’t we go to the Spiritual Taste Restaurant together after we’re done shopping?”

It was obvious that the couple wanted to befriend Jiang Chengxuan.

Although Jiang Chengxuan did not like such socializing, Xu Haichuan and his wife were after all the first two friends he had made since he came to Ganyang City.

Even the cave abode he lived in was introduced to him by this couple.

It was really not appropriate to reject.

Therefore, he nodded.

“Alright, then let’s go to the Spiritual Taste Restaurant together later.”
