Another System Mission
The Spiritual Taste Restaurant was considered the most visited restaurant by low-level Qi Refinement cultivators like them in the Ganyang Market.
When Jiang Chengxuan and Xu Haichuan arrived, the restaurant was already filled with independant cultivators.
They found an empty table by the window and sat down.
After asking the shopkeeper for some spirit wine and food, Xu Haichuan looked at Jiang Chengxuan and said,
“Fellow Daoist Jiang, I think you’ve heard about the situation in that ruin.
How about it? Are you interested in exploring that place with us?
Maybe we can find the legendary Foundation Establishment opportunity.”
Xu Haichuan invited Jiang Chengxuan again.
Originally, he had already given up on inviting Jiang Chengxuan, but when he saw that Jiang Chengxuan’s cultivation had already broken through to the ninth level of Qi Refinement, he couldn’t help but want to try again.
After all, a cultivator at the ninth level of Qi Refinement was not to be underestimated.
If they could really pull him into their team, it would undoubtedly greatly increase the strength of their team.
When they entered the ruin to explore again, with Jiang Chengxuan around, it would be more likely for them to come out alive.
Unfortunately, Jiang Chengxuan was still not interested in Xu Haichuan’s invitation. He shook his head with a smile.
“I’m sorry, Fellow Daoist Xu. I’m afraid I’ll disappoint you again this time.
I still have something to do. I’m afraid I can’t enter the ruin with you.”
No matter what, they had already invited him twice in a row, so it was not appropriate for him to decline too straightforwardly.
However, the couple should be able to understand what he meant.
A trace of disappointment appeared on Xu Haichuan and Mei Hongyan’s faces.
However, perhaps because Jiang Chengxuan had already broken through to the ninth level of Qi Refinement, Mei Hongyan, who was displeased with Jiang Chengxuan rejecting their invitation back then, was not unhappy this time.
On the contrary, a smile appeared on her face.
“Since Fellow Daoist Jiang still has something to do, let’s forget about it.
However, I believe Fellow Daoist Jiang will more or less be interested in what I’m about to say next.”
Hearing that, Jiang Chengxuan’s curiosity was instantly piqued.
He couldn’t help but ask with a smile, “May I know what it is?”
“Let my husband tell you.”
Mei Hongyan smiled and turned to Xu Haichuan.
Xu Haichuan nodded and said, “It’s about the independant cultivators’ trade fair.”
“Independant cultivators’ trade fair?”
Xu Haichuan nodded.
“Three months later, in the DongWon Pavilion of the Ganyang Market, there will be a trade fair specially held for us independant cultivators.
At that time, if you have anything you want to buy or trade, you can go to the trade fair to take a look. Perhaps there will be something you want.”
As expected, he was indeed a little interested in this trade fair.
Even if there was nothing he needed to trade or buy, it was still a good thing for him to go and broaden his horizons.
At the thought of this, he immediately thanked Xu Haichuan and his wife.
“Thank you for telling me this. This meal is on me. I hope the two of you won’t snatch it from me.”
Xu Haichuan and his wife said simultaneously, “Then we won’t stand on ceremony, Fellow Daoist Jiang.”
After the three of them bade farewell and left the Spiritual Taste Pavillion, Jiang Chengxuan returned to his cave abode.
Not long after returning to the cave abode, Jiang Chengxuan took out the talisman-making materials he had bought.
He planned to use his talisman-making skills to draw some talismans and sell them to earn some spirit stones.
Otherwise, no matter how much savings he had, it would not be enough to spend.
Moreover, he didn’t have savings.
He washed his hands and calmed his mind.
Then, he lit a Concentration Incense.
With that done, Jiang Chengxuan began to make talismans.
What Jiang Chengxuan drew first was a mid-grade Level 1 talisman called the Water Sword Talisman.
Once it was used, it could turn into a ten-foot-long water sword to attack the enemy.
If a mid-level Qi Refinement cultivator was not careful, he would most likely be knocked down by it.
He had already drawn dozens of such talismans in the past.
Therefore, it was quite easy to draw this time.
About half a day later.
Jiang Chengxuan put down the talisman brush in his hand.
In front of him was a Water Sword Talisman that emitted a faint spiritual qi.
Such a talisman could be sold for seven or eight spirit stones in the market.
If it was in high demand, even if it was sold for ten spirit stones, many people would still want it.
Just as Jiang Chengxuan put away the Water Sword Talisman and was about to draw the next talisman, the system’s voice suddenly sounded in his mind.
[Ding! An achievement mission has been issued. Host, please complete the drawing of the Water Sword Talisman a hundred times.]
Hearing this voice, Jiang Chengxuan was immediately excited.
The system mission finally came again!
However, the mission this time was actually to draw the Water Sword Talisman a hundred times.
A drawing progress immediately appeared in his retina.
[Current progress of drawing the Water Sword Talisman: 57%]
In other words, in the past, he had already successfully drawn 57 Water Sword Talismans.
In that case, he only needed to successfully draw 43 more Water Sword Talismans.
However, the talisman-making materials he bought previously would probably not be enough.
He might have to go out and buy some more later.
Just like that.
Jiang Chengxuan began his task of drawing the Water Sword Talisman.
Two months passed.
Jiang Chengxuan spent another 33 spirit stones to buy some talisman-making materials before completing the drawing of the remaining Water Sword Talisman.
When the mission progress finally reached 100%, Jiang Chengxuan finally heard the system notification again.
“Congratulations, host. You have completed drawing the Water Sword Talisman a hundred times. You have obtained the ability to draw a Level 1 high-grade Water Shield Talisman.”
In an instant, Jiang Chengxuan felt all kinds of scenes and experiences related to drawing the Water Shield Talisman suddenly appear in his mind.
During this process, his talisman-making cultivation unknowingly reached high-grade Level 1.
Moreover, his proficiency also increased.
A high-grade Level 1 Water Shield Talisman was a defensive talisman.
Strictly speaking, it was much more difficult to draw than ordinary high-grade Level 1 offensive talismans.
Now that Jiang Chengxuan already had the ability to draw Water Shield Talisman, theoretically speaking, as long as he could obtain the drawing method of other high-grade Level 1 talismans, with some time and effort, he was confident that he could master it.
Actually, the reward this time was not as good as the previous ones.
However, it was helpful to his current situation, especially since there would be an independent cultivators’ trade fair a month later.
At that time, if he could produce some high-grade Level 1 Water Shield Talismans, he should be able to earn a lot.
