Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-654
A warm gentle light shone over the quiet secret chamber, expelling all
the darkness within it.
A flat bed was placed in a corner of the secret chamber. It leaned
against the wall. Xiao Yan was seated cross-legged on it. Various kinds
of medicinal ingredients, which were wrapped nicely, were placed in front
of him. Some of these medicinal ingredients were quite rare, and could
definitely be sold for quite a high price within the ‘Black-Corner
Region’. Moreover, there were quite a large amount of them. One really
could not help but sigh at the richness of Han Feng’s wealth.
Xiao Yan’s gaze swept over the large number of medicinal ingredients
placed in front of him. He could not help but shake his head, and his
heart once again sighed in surprise at Han Feng’s wealth. Regardless of
how wealthy Han Feng was, it all ended up benefiting Xiao Yan now.
“I was barely able to gather the necessary ingredients needed to refine
the ‘Spiritual Recovery Purple Pill’ from these medicinal
ingredients.” Xiao Yan withdrew his gaze, mused for a moment before he
immediately spoke in a somewhat surprised voice.
The ‘Spiritual Recovery Purple Pill’. Xiao Yan recalled the Ice
Emperor Hai Bodong in the Jia Ma Empire when he thought of this medicinal
pill. Being his first partner, this old man whose character appeared a
little cold and indifferent, gave Xiao Yan quite a good impression. This
was especially the case when he actually provided help while Xiao Yan was
being chased after by the Misty Cloud Sect. This was sufficient to cause
Xiao Yan to feel extremely grateful toward Hai Bodong.
Hence, Xiao Yan had kept the medicinal pill he owed Hai Bodong back then
in his heart. In the past, he did not possess the ability to refine it.
However, he already possessed the ability after having left the
underground. Though, the medicinal ingredients he had gathered with much
difficulty in the past had completely disappeared while he was
underground. It was only natural for Xiao Yan to remember Hai Bodong now
that he actually saw that he had a set of medicinal ingredients he could
refine the ‘Spiritual Recovery Purple Pill’ with.
“Ke ke, since there is sufficient medicinal ingredients, I shall first
help that old fellow refine one. Otherwise, I won’t be able to answer
to him if he inquires about it when I return to the Jia Ma Empire in the
future.” The corner of Xiao Yan’s mouth wore a smile as he shook his
head slightly. He waved his hand and a large crimson-colored medicinal
cauldron flashed out of the Serene Sea Storage Ring. Finally, it landed
in front of him.
The crimson-colored medicinal cauldron was large in size. Its body was
covered with different kinds of unique lines. Various life-like fierce
beast drawings were carved into it. Their savage large mouths were open,
and if one were to place one’s ear close beside it to listen, one would
be able to hear some strange roars that were faintly emitted from the
medicinal cauldron. These unusual characteristics all indicated that this
crimson cauldron was extraordinary.
This crimson-colored cauldron was naturally not something that belonged
to Xiao Yan. It was something that Han Feng had left behind. From the
looks of it, this was something the latter had used to refine pills.
“This fellow had been lording over the ‘Black-Corner Region’, and
had obtained quite the benefits.” Xiao Yan’s hand gently tapped on
the crimson-colored medicinal cauldron. The clear sound of metal
colliding pleasantly reverberated in the secret chamber. With this, Xiao
Yan nodded his head with satisfaction and laughed softly.
Although Xiao Yan was unaware of the origin of this crimson medicinal
cauldron. He was clearly aware that with the exception of the so-called
Black Demon Medicinal Cauldron, which was ranked in the ‘Heavenly
Cauldron Ranking’, the other medicinal cauldrons that he had used could
perhaps only be described with the word ‘garbage’ when compared to
Xiao Yan flicked his finger, and a wisp of dark-green flame appeared on
its tip. The temperature of the secret chamber immediately rose following
the appearance of the flame. However, this naturally did not pose any
hindrance to Xiao Yan. His gaze focused intently on the medicinal
cauldron. A moment later, he waved his hand, and the dark-green flame
shot out before eventually following the fire outlet of the crimson
medicinal cauldron to enter into it.
The dark-green flame suddenly expanded after entering the medicinal
cauldron, turning into a fierce flame that withered and soared.
The dark-green flame surged wildly within the medicinal cauldron, and
repeatedly unleashed a terrifying temperature. However, regardless of how
this temperature soared, that crimson medicinal cauldron continued to
show no activity. Despite the temperature within it being shockingly
high, its outer surface was still as cool as the air outside.
“Good cauldron!” Xiao Yan’s eyes were fiery hot as he stared at
this large item. A moment later, he could not resist opening his mouth to
praise. Although he had yet to begin refining a medicinal pill, he was
still able to guess just how great of a help this medicinal cauldron
would be in the refinement of pills through his experiment. One could
even unceremoniously say that using this medicinal cauldron to refine
pills would likely increase the success of refinement by quite a bit. For
an alchemist, what thing other than a medicinal cauldron that could raise
the chances of success in the refinement of pills possessed a greater
The temperature within the medicinal cauldron gradually reached Xiao
Yan’s desired level as the dark-green flame churned within it. During
this period of time, Xiao Yan also repeatedly read the refining method
for the ‘Spiritual Recovery Purple Pill’. Yao Lao had already passed
the medicinal formula to him back then. However, he had never taken
action to refine it due to his refining ability being too poor back then.
Xiao Yan’s mind gradually became focused after he read the medicinal
formula for the ‘Spiritual Recovery Purple Pill’ a couple of times
within his head. He waved his sleeves and the few medicinal ingredients
were skillfully thrown into the fierce flame within the medicinal
The medicinal ingredients had just entered the medicinal cauldron when it
began to wither at a rate visible to the naked eye under the high
temperature. Although the leaves of the medicinal ingredients had
withered, its core area was slowly emitting different colored liquids. A
moment later, the few drops of different colored liquids surfaced on the
dark-green flame after the leaves were completely withered. The impurity
contained within them was slowly removed as it was grilled.
Xiao Yan nodded his head slightly as he faintly glanced at the medicinal
liquid that was slowly becoming purer under the grilling of the
dark-green flame. His ten fingers flicked one after another as the
medicinal ingredients that were placed in front of him flew about as he
did so. Finally, they were all poured into the medicinal cauldron. The
scene of medicinal ingredients dancing all over the place was quite
Of course, Xiao Yan would naturally not dare to be this careless and bold
if this were the past. However, things were different now. With the
soaring of his strength, his control of the flame also grew increasingly
more sophisticated. His current ability along with the help from the
dark-green flame that was born from the merger of two kinds of
‘Heavenly Flames’ and the crimson cauldron that Han Feng had left
behind, it was likely that Xiao Yan’s chances of success would reach
quite a high level even when refining a tier 6 medicinal pill.
One after another, the medicinal ingredients fell into the medicinal
cauldron. They were turned into powder or liquid in an instant as they
were suspended within the cauldron. With the flow of time, one could see
that the various medicinal liquids and powders that were suspended within
the medicinal cauldron increased. Refining these medicinal liquids
greatly exhausted one’s Spiritual Strength. Among those of Xiao Yan’s
class, it was likely that only Xiao Yan was able to afford squandering
such a great amount of it. If it was someone else, it was likely that
such a person would not dare to mess around like this.
Xiao Yan’s eyes stared intently at the various medicinal liquids and
powders that were suspended within the medicinal cauldron. A moment
later, the final medicinal ingredient was finally thrown into the
medicinal cauldron by Xiao Yan.
Xiao Yan’s mind also gradually became solemn after he threw the final
medicinal ingredient into the medicinal cauldron. In the past, Xiao Yan
naturally needed to divide the refinement of these medicinal ingredients
into many steps. However, he was currently able to throw all of them into
the medicinal cauldron in one go and was also able to maintain different
flame intensities to refine each and every one of these medicinal
ingredients. This kind of achievement was something that could not be
compared to the past.
Xiao Yan’s Spiritual Strength swarmed into the medicinal cauldron. The
kind of high temperature environment did not hinder his Spiritual
Strength. Instead, that warm feeling caused his Spiritual Strength to
feel a comfort like a fish entering water.
Those medicinal liquids that were suspended within the medicinal cauldron
were completely controlled by Xiao Yan after his Spiritual Strength
swarmed into it. A moment later, Xiao Yan exhaled a breath and his hand
seal changed abruptly!
A catalyst appeared to have been added into the originally warm
dark-green flame within the medicinal cauldron after his hand seal
changed. An extremely frightening temperature suddenly erupted. Those
medicinal liquids began to swiftly evaporate under this frightening
The impurities that were contained within the liquids were completely
refined and removed following the evaporation of the medicinal liquids.
A low cry was emitted from Xiao Yan’s mouth. Immediately, the dozens of
different colored medicinal liquids and medicinal powders within the
medicinal cauldron began to be dragged by something and swiftly merged
together. They finally began to rotate wildly…
The fist-sized coagulated liquid body slowly shrank as it was burned by
the high temperature of the surrounding dark-green flame… After two to
three hours had passed, the fist-sized coagulated medicinal liquid was
now only the size of a thumb. Its rotation began to gradually slow, and
one could vaguely see the embryonic medicinal pill shape began to slowly
Xiao Yan sighed in relief when he saw the embryonic medicinal pill shape.
Although the ‘Spiritual Recovery Purple Pill’ was a tier 6 medicinal
pill, the requirements needed to refine it were not very high. The effect
of this medicinal pill was far too unique. Only a small number of people
required it. It was useless for most people to obtain it. If one were to
discuss its value, a ‘Spiritual Recovery Purple Pill’ was not even
comparable to a ‘Dou Spirit Pill’.
The temperature of the dark-green flame was gradually reduced. Finally,
it turned into a cluster of fist-sized flame that was suspended under the
embryonic pale-purple medicinal pill. The gradually reducing temperature
slowly completed the final step of refining a medicinal pill: brewing a
With the temperature slowly dissipating, the outer appearance of the
purple-colored embryonic medicinal pill also turned round and sleek.
Moreover, it gained a rich luster.
An unusual medicinal fragrance and an energy ripple suddenly surged out
from the medicinal cauldron around an hour later. Only then did Xiao Yan
slowly open his eyes. He immediately felt somewhat surprised to see that
the energy ripple and purple-colored fragrance rising from the
purple-colored medicinal pill were all contained within the crimson
medicinal cauldron. They were unable to escape regardless of how much
they knocked around.
“This medicinal cauldron is actually also able to hide the unnatural
phenomenon that appears when a tier 6 medicinal pill is formed?” Xiao
Yan was surprised as he observed the effect of the medicinal cauldron. He
could not resist letting out an exclamation. It was a long time later
before he withdrew the surprise within his heart. With a wave of his
hand, the cover of the medicinal cauldron opened by itself, and a
purple-colored medicinal pill, carrying a wisp of fragrance, flew out
from the cauldron before eventually being grabbed by Xiao Yan’s hand.
After which, he stuffed it within a medicinal bottle he had already
Xiao Yan laughed softly as he studied the purple-colored medicinal pill
with a gem-like luster. Only now was he able to actually fulfill the
reward he had promised Hai Bodong back then…
However, being able to successfully refine the ‘Spiritual Recovery
Purple Pill’ had already caused Xiao Yan to be quite happy. This was
because being able to refine a tier 6 medicinal pill meant that he
already possessed the ability of a tier 6 alchemist despite this
‘Spiritual Recovery Purple Pill’ being one that was ranked among the
lowest of the tier 6 medicinal pills.

Xiao Yan suppressed this joy within his heart as his gaze once again
turned to the other medicinal ingredients that had been laid out in front
of him. He let out a bitter laugh. It seemed that he would need to
accompany this medicinal cauldron for a long period of time after this…
