Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-538
Xiao Yan and Elder Hao exchanged glances with one another as they walked
out of Elder Liu’s room. Both of them involuntarily laughed out loud.
“Elder Hao, I really have to thank you very much this time around.”
Xiao Yan walked a little closer and softly said, “There will definitely
be a reward for you in the future.”
“Ke ke, this is but a small matter. Our ears will be a little quieter
now that that fellow has lost the thing he boasts about in front of
us.” Elder Hao waved his hand. However, from the looks of his
expression, Xiao Yan’s words still caused him to be quite happy. After
all, he already had some intention of befriending Xiao Yan after
witnessing the latter’s refinement skills. He was already quite happy
at being able to get a tier five alchemist to owe him a favor that was
neither large nor small.
The two of them chatted and laughed as they walked out of this quiet area
where the Elders resided. The two of them separated at a fork in the
road. Elder Hao needed to return to guard the medicinal warehouse, and
Xiao Yan needed to return to ‘Pan’s Gate’.
Xiao Yan stood at the forked road and eyed Elder Hao’s back which had
disappeared. He let out a long sigh, and the joy within his heart
involuntarily surfaced on his face. Now that he had fully prepared all
the things he needed, all that was left was the refinement. However, the
‘Ground Spirit Pill’ was a tier 6 medicinal pill. With his current
strength, he could merely refine some common tier 5 medicinal pills. He
need not even be bothered about thinking of a tier 6 medicinal pill.
Therefore, it was likely that Yao Lao would need to act to refine the
‘Ground Spirit Pill’.
“Now, we are pressed for time. There is no telling when the ‘Fallen
Heart Flame’ will erupt. Therefore, it is best to refine this ‘Ground
Spirit Pill’ as soon as possible.” Yao Lao’s voice also quietly
sounded within Xiao Yan’s heart while the latter was in deep thought.
Xiao Yan raised his head slightly. He eyed the deserted area around him
and nodded his head without leaving a trace. His footsteps walked toward
the area where ‘Pan’s Gate’ was located as he softly asked in his
heart, “In that case, when does Teacher intend to act?”
“It is for best that we do it during these next few days.” Yao Lao
voiced his thoughts, “You should first rest for one to two days. After
which, we will need to enter deep into the mountains once again. Some
unusual phenomenon occurs in the sky when refining a tier 6 medicinal
pill. Moreover, this ‘Ground Spirit Pill’ can be considered among the
top even within the tier 6 medicinal pills. Hence, there might be quite a
great movement. As such, we will definitely be exposed if we were to
refine it within the Inner Academy.”
Xiao Yan nodded his head, indicating that he understood. He quietly mused
for a while within his heart before he gradually hastened his footsteps.
A short while later, he appeared outside of ‘Pan’s Gate’. Perhaps
it was because it was currently at night, but the people who were waiting
at this place to challenge him had all disappeared. This caused Xiao Yan
to save the trouble of secretly flying in again. He arranged his robes
before openly walking in through the main entrance.
Xiao Yan spent the next two days training quietly within ‘Pan’s
Gate’. He did not enter the ‘Blazing Sky Qi Refining Tower’.
Moreover, no problems occurred within ‘Pan’s Gate’ during these two
days. Currently, the sale of medicinal pills by ‘Pan’s Gate’
dominated seventy-percent of the market of the academy. An increasing
number of older students had also wanted to enter after hearing the name
of ‘Pan’s Gate’. Moreover, the number of alchemists in ‘Pan’s
Gate’ increased from the original three to the current six after a
stringent selection period. Therefore, the speed at which the medicinal
pills were refined had also increased by quite a lot.
Currently, the strength of ‘Pan’s Gate’ was already a faction that
was sufficient enough to rival that of some of the top tier factions
within the Inner Academy under the support of the powerful ‘Fire
Energy’. Moreover, two strong people who had reached the strength of
three star Dou Lings ended up joining ‘Pan’s Gate’ due to the
attraction of the reward and punishment system that Xun Er and the others
had set up. This was something that Xiao Yan had not expected.
Hence, ‘Pan’s Gate’ currently possessed three elite Dou Lings if
these two Dou Ling were included. This line-up caused it to have the
qualification to truly become a top tier faction. Moreover, under the
support of its powerful finances, someone who was able to become a member
of ‘Pan’s Gate’ already possessed the capital to boast to people
The current ‘Pan’s Gate’ was as different as the clouds in the sky
and the mud on the ground when compared to the ‘Pan’s Gate’ formed
from new students half a year ago.
By being able to transform a mediocre faction into a powerful one within
half a year, Xiao Yan’s name also began to spread around the Inner
Academy in an increasingly loud manner. Although he was merely ranked
thirty-four on the ‘Strong Ranking’, his reputation was enough to
catch up with those top experts in the top ten.
Xiao Yan finally ended his training retreat on the third day. He had
firmly stabilized his strength at the one star Dou Ling level today.
Moreover, his Dou Qi had also advanced quite significantly due to him
refining medicinal pills a couple of times. According to this speed, he
would not need much time to enter into the peak of a one star Dou Ling.
Xiao Yan walked downstairs after coming out of his room. He saw Hu
Jia’s figure within the hall, and felt a much stronger Qi from her.
Xiao Yan understood that she had actually benefited from her misfortune
of being injured this time, allowing her to breakthrough to the level of
a nine star Da Dou Shi. With her training talent, she might not need much
time before she truly breakthrough to become a Dou Ling. At that time,
‘Pan’s Gate’ would have an additional Dou Ling. Oh no, it should be
two more. He must not exclude that battle lunatic Wu Hao. With the way he
crazily fought everyday in the Fighting Arena, Xiao Yan guessed that the
latter might well enter the Dou Ling class earlier than Hu Jia.
Xiao Yan walked into the hall and carelessly ate some breakfast. He
briefly told Xun Er that he needed to once again enter the deep mountains
this time around. The latter also felt somewhat stunned when she heard
that Xiao Yan was going back after having only just returned for a couple
of days. However, she found it hard to say anything to stop Xiao Yan when
she saw his serious expression. All she did was merely nod her head
“Go, be careful. I will take care of ‘Pan’s Gate’.” Xun Er said
with a soft smile when she saw Xiao Yan standing up and preparing to
leave after having eaten his breakfast.

“Ai, you have all worked really hard. I will return after a couple of
days this time around.” Xiao Yan smiled and nodded to Xun Er and Hu
Jia. He pulled open the door and an eye-piercing sunlight caused him to
narrow his eyes. Immediately, he let out a smile and proudly walked out.
Xiao Yan ran to the exit of the Inner Academy after leaving ‘Pan’s
Gate’. Only after leaving the Inner Academy did he search for a remote
location. After which, he summoned his Purple Cloud Wings and swiftly
rose into the air. His body transformed into a black shadow that swiftly
flew into the deep mountains.
Xiao Yan flapped the Purple Cloud Wings and flew for nearly an hour.
After he figured out that he had already entered the middle region of the
mountain range, he gradually slowed down. He spent half an hour searching
a precipitous mountain peak that was merely a few dozen feet wide before
These few mountain peaks were nearly completely vertical. If one did not
borrow the help of wings, it was impossible to climb to its peak without
the support of powerful Dou Qi. Moreover, there were a couple of even
taller mountain peaks standing around it. Coincidentally they covered
this small mountain peak within enormous lush green trees.
Yao Lao’s figure immediately drifted out when Xiao Yan landed on the
top of this small mountain. The former eyed his surroundings before
nodding with some satisfaction.
“You should not be too far away while I am refining the ‘Ground
Spirit Pill’. You need to carefully observe my refining methods.
Although you are able to be extremely sought after no matter where you
are given your current medicinal refinement skills, you still have an
extremely large gap when compared with a true alchemist grandmaster.”
Yao Lao spoke to Xiao Yan in a solemn manner.
“Yes.” Xiao Yan hurriedly nodded when he heard this. Being able to
observe an alchemist grandmaster refining a medicinal pill was something
that one might encounter, but could not wish for. It had extremely great
benefits for him.
TL: something that one might encounter, but could not wish for – meaning
that if one is lucky one will meet it. Otherwise, one will not get the
chance regardless of how much they desire
“Of course, you must keep a distance from the unnatural phenomenon when
the pill is formed. Otherwise, it would be troublesome if you are
accidentally injured.” Yao Lao sat cross-legged on the grass as he
Xiao Yan nodded once again.
“Take out the medicinal ingredients.” Yao Lao’s expression
gradually became solemn as he exhaled a deep breath of air and instructed.
Xiao Yan swiftly took out the few extremely rare medicinal ingredients
from his storage ring when he heard Yao Lao’s instruction. He placed
them orderly in front of him. In an instant, a rich medicinal fragrance
covered this small mountain peak. When one inhaled a deep breath, it
caused one to feel relaxed and happy.
Yao Lao’s gaze slowly swept over the few medicinal ingredients. He
nodded slightly before waving his hand toward Xiao Yan. The ancient
dark-black ring on the latter’s hand immediately came off
automatically. Finally, it floated in front of Yao Lao.
The black-colored ring glowed and flickered. Immediately, a
five-foot-tall, dark-black medicinal cauldron suddenly appeared.
The entire body of the dark-black medicinal cauldron had strange flame
lines painted all over it. At a glance, those flames appeared to have
intelligence. They wiggled slightly appearing to be living creatures.
The appearance of this medicinal cauldron caused Xiao Yan’s mouth to
salivate more. Back then, he had seen Yao Lao summon it before. However,
he was basically a novice back then. How would he be painstakingly aware
of just how valuable this medicinal cauldron was within the alchemist
“Black Demon… tsk tsk. When can I get my hands on one of these
medicinal cauldrons which is on the ‘Heavenly Cauldron Ranking’?”
Xiao Yan’s gaze was blurred as he eyed this dark-black medicinal
cauldron with an extraordinary aura. His tone was filled with desire as
he spoke. The medicinal cauldrons that he used in the past were totally
piles of garbage when compared with this ‘Black Demon’.
Yao Lao eyed those glowing eyes of Xiao Yan and shook his head, not
knowing whether to laugh or cry. He said, “This kind of medicinal
cauldron which is ranked within the ‘Heavenly Cauldron Rank’
possesses some spirituality. Moreover, I have also applied a spiritual
imprint on this ‘Black Demon’. Currently, you are unable to use it. I
will be able to remove the spiritual imprint once I possess a body that
can host a spirit. You will be able to randomly use it at that time.”
Xiao Yan let out silly laughter.
“Alright. The refinement is about to begin. Little fellow, don’t be
distracted.” Yao Lao laughed. His face gradually became serious. It was
apparent how serious he was toward this refinement through his act of
summoning the ‘Black Demon’ to refine the medicinal pill.
A shriveled eagle claw like illusionary hand extended slightly.
Immediately, a cluster of thick white flame appeared out of nowhere.
The surrounding temperature declined greatly the moment the thick white
flame appeared. Although the temperature had declined, the flame rose
even more intensely. The two completely opposite perceptions caused it to
appear extremely strange.
Yao Lao waved his hand. The thick white flame instantly swarmed into the
medicinal cauldron. In an instant, a raging intense flame rose from
within the cauldron.
At this moment, the refinement of the tier 6 ‘Ground Spirit Pill’ had
