MARTIAL PEAK 4497


“Really?” Yang Kai raised his brow. He had thought he had to change his plans, but who would have thought that Gao Xinpeng would agree in the blink of an eye, a pleasant surprise.


Gao Xinpeng smiled and said, “It’s just an exchange of pointers, not a competition, nothing serious. This Gao is quite interested in your Alchemy technique.”


He was an honest man who would say anything he wanted. If it weren’t for his interest in Yang Kai’s Alchemy techniques, he probably wouldn’t have agreed to such a request. With his status as a Heaven Pill Master, it was impossible for an Earth Rank Pill Master to surpass him in Alchemy.


Miao Hong hesitated before asking, “Brother Gao, is this alright?”


Gao Xinpeng smiled lightly, “What, is City Lord afraid that this Gao will bully the weak?”


Miao Hong quickly waved his hand, “Brother Gao knows I don’t mean it that way, it’s just that… never mind, since Brother Gao has already agreed, this Miao won’t say anything. I just hope that the two of you can stop when the time comes and not damage the harmony!”


“Naturally,” Gao Xinpeng turned to look at Yang Kai, “Little brother, since you want to spar with me, let me ask a question? What kind of pills should we refine?”


“Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill!” Yang Kai immediately said.


Gao Xinpeng was slightly stunned, “Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill? Little brother, are you sure you want to refine a Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill?”


Yang Kai said, “I’m currently at the peak of the Earth Rank, so I need a Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill to break through to the Heaven Rank, so I can make full use of it after I complete it.”


Gao Xinpeng said, “Little brother, could it be that you don’t know that unless you’re a Heaven Rank master, you can’t refine a Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill?”


“Why?” Yang Kai frowned.


Gao Xinpeng said, “The spiritual force in an Earth Rank cultivator’s body is insufficient to support the refinement of a Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill. Only a Heaven Rank master can refine it.” Seeing his ignorant expression, Gao Xinpeng couldn’t help wondering if the Vitality Pill and Turtle Breath Pill were refined by him.


Yang Kai had never heard of such a thing before. Although the Divine Weapon World had given him some memories and identity, he didn’t have much knowledge about Alchemy.


However, after thinking about it carefully, in this world, a cultivator needed a Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill to break through from the Earth Rank to the Heaven Rank, and a Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill was not something a Heaven Rank cultivator could refine. If that was the case, how did the first Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill come about? This was the same question as having a chicken or an egg first.


“If you want to refine a Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill, you don’t have the slightest advantage, so you should change to another one,” Gao Xinpeng suggested.


Yang Kai slowly shook his head, “I’m confident I can refine it.”


Not to mention that the spiritual force contained in his body was far more powerful than that of an ordinary Earth Rank cultivator, even his attainments in the Dao of Alchemy were enough for him to find a solution to any problem he encountered.


The most important thing now was to obtain the pill recipe for the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill!


Seeing Yang Kai’s persistence, Gao Xinpeng’s expression became slightly impatient. Yang Kai gave him a feeling that he was being unreasonable. No matter how good his temper was, he was still a respected Heaven Pill Master, and no one had ever acted so presumptuously before him.


His voice became slightly colder as he said, “Since you insist, then refine the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill.” He didn’t deny that Yang Kai’s talent was outstanding, and he had heard from Miao Hong that Yang Kai was only seventeen or eighteen years old, yet he was already an Earth Rank Peak and Earth Pill Master. Such a person was also an outstanding figure in the entire Divine Weapon World.


Perhaps his high aptitude gave him a sense of pride and arrogance. For such a person, having a few setbacks in his growth was not necessarily a bad thing. He secretly made up his mind that when he went back to Pill Refining, he would ruthlessly crush his spirit and let him know that there was always someone stronger than him.


Seeing that the two of them had come to an agreement, Miao Hong laughed loudly, “This Miao is quite fortunate to be able to witness two Alchemists exchanging pointers one day. What kind of herbs do the two of you need to prepare? This Miao will immediately have someone purchase them!”


Yang Kai’s ears immediately perked up.


How could he know what kind of herbs were needed to refine the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill? Right now, all of this was entrusted to Gao Xinpeng. He had been busy in Heavenly Martial City for this very moment. Although a complete pill recipe not only contained the required herbs, the steps to refine it, the degree of heat, and so on, it was still convenient for him to figure out which herbs were needed first.


Gao Xinpeng smiled lightly, “There’s no need to trouble City Lord about this matter, this Gao will naturally have someone purchase the herbs.”


Saying so, he turned to the two Heaven Rank guards behind him and ordered them to leave.


Yang Kai almost spat out a mouthful of blood!


Although he already knew it wouldn’t be so easy to obtain a pill recipe for a Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill, the scene in front of him still made him extremely depressed.


It was no wonder everyone said that the pill recipe for the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill was a top-secret secret among Alchemists. Gao Xinpeng’s method was naturally to prevent others from knowing what herbs he needed.


But if he was so vigilant, how could Yang Kai obtain the herbs needed for the pill recipe?


Miao Hong turned to look at Yang Kai, and Yang Kai squeezed out a smile, “City Lord, I’ll be sure to prepare my own herbs.”


“Good!” Miao Hong no longer insisted, “It’s already late today, so the two of you must prepare many things for Pill Refining. Tomorrow, when the two of you are ready, this Miao will open the Pill Room and allow the two of you to freely spar.”


Today, the City Lord’s Mansion was in an upheaval and many people had died. Miao Hong himself had just escaped from the gates of hell, so it was quite exhausting for him to speak so much, but he still personally arranged for Gao Xinpeng and Yang Kai to stay here before going to rest.


In the middle of the night, Yang Kai sighed, put on his night clothes, and ordered Du Youyou to stay behind while he quietly ran out.


If he wanted to refine a Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill, he had to know what herbs Gao Xinpeng bought, so he had no choice but to personally investigate this matter.


Fortunately, he had been hanging around the City Lord’s Mansion for the past few days, so his ability to sneak around at night had reached a high level. After searching for a while, he quickly found Gao Xinpeng’s residence, withdrew his aura, and quietly hid by the skylight, glancing down.


Inside the room, the candlelight flickered as Gao Xinpeng sat on the bed, seemingly resting.


Seeing no trace of the male guard, Yang Kai let out a sigh of relief.


Gao Xinpeng’s two guards were both peak Heaven Rank masters, not something Yang Kai could contend with right now. There had been precedents where Miao Hong had discovered him, so Yang Kai didn’t know if he would be discovered by the two guards if he continued to spy on the house.


Now that they weren’t in the house, it was naturally a joyous occasion.


Although Gao Xinpeng was also a Heaven Rank, his cultivation shouldn’t have reached the peak of the Heaven Rank. Moreover, an Alchemist like him spent most of his time and energy on Alchemy, so even if he had a Heaven Rank cultivation, he probably wouldn’t be able to display the corresponding strength.


As long as he was careful, he wouldn’t be afraid of being discovered by him.


After waiting for about an hour, Yang Kai suddenly heard the sound of footsteps coming from outside, and his spirits rose. He knew that the female guard who had gone out to purchase herbs had returned.


Sure enough, with a knock on the door, the female guard pushed open the door and placed a package on the table before cupping her fists, “Sir, the herbs have been bought.”


Gao Xinpeng didn’t even open his eyes, “Understood, you may leave.”


“Yes!” The female guard nodded and respectfully withdrew.


Yang Kai’s eyes were like a leech as he stared fixedly at the package. He knew that the various herbs needed to refine the Ten Revolutions Heartless Pill were all in this package. As long as Gao Xinpeng opened it, he would be able to get a glimpse.


Waiting quietly…


What made Yang Kai so depressed was that Gao Xinpeng had been meditating all this time, not even moving his body. Seeing that the sky was about to brighten but he was still as calm as ever, it was obvious he was very confident in his guards’ ability.


However, Yang Kai was waiting for him to open the package. What was he supposed to do?


Just as Yang Kai was considering whether he should act as a diversion to lure the two guards and Gao Xinpeng away and then personally investigate the situation, Gao Xinpeng, who had been sitting cross-legged, finally moved.


Under Yang Kai’s close watch, this guy first got up, boiled some tea, and slowly tasted it. Then, as if remembering something, he opened his bag and took out a large number of herbs from it.


Yang Kai wanted nothing more than to take out his Azure Dragon Spear and stab him to death! However, he also knew that this idea was unrealistic, so he could only quickly memorize the quantity and variety of these herbs.


A moment later, Yang Kai quietly left, leading Du Youyou out of the City Lord’s Mansion and return to the Heavenly Net Residence's shop. Taking all the black jade he had brought with him, Yang Kai rushed to the various herb store.


When the sun was high in the sky, inside the City Lord’s Mansion’s Pill Room, Miao Hong personally opened the Pill Room and led Yang Kai and Gao Xinpeng inside, chuckling as he said, “This is the City Lord’s Mansion’s Pill Room. This place can attract Earth Fire, so although it can’t compare to Brother Gao’s Pill Fire, it’s more than enough for my Heavenly Martial City’s good-for-nothing Alchemists to use.”


Gao Xinpeng nodded slightly, “Since this is a friendly exchange with Little Brother Yang, everyone should use the same Pill Refining tools!”


Obviously, he didn’t want to bully the weak, otherwise, even if he won, it would be unfair. Using the Earth Fire and Pill Refining Furnace here was also a fair display.


Miao Hong personally explained to Gao Xinpeng and Yang Kai how to use their spritual energy to activate the Earth Fire, then asked the two of them to find a similar pill furnace before standing to the side with a radiant smile on his face.


Although he was a peak Heaven Rank master, he had rarely seen a Heaven Pill Master like Gao Xinpeng personally refine pills. Under normal circumstances, Heaven Pill Master would absolutely keep their Pill Refining secrets. Besides a few assistants, no one else would be able to observe them so closely.


He had known Gao Xinpeng for so many years but had never seen him refine a pill before, so he was naturally quite interested.


“If the two of you are fine, then this exchange will begin,” Miao Hong stretched out his hand.


Gao Xinpeng nodded slightly and opened his bag, taking out the herbs one by one and arranging them into different categories.


Yang Kai was still circulating his spiritual force to familiarize himself with the Earth Fire.


When it came to Pill Refining, the degree of heat was crucial, so it was important to familiarize oneself with it.
