Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-841
The white-haired old man carefully picked up the bright-red scroll from
the silver plate before lifting it up for everyone in the auction to see.
He smiled and said, “This ruler technique Dou Technique is called the
Six Joint Body Flowing Ruler, a Di class Middle level Dou Technique. It
was created a couple of centuries ago by the Six Joint zun-zhe who had
dominated the continent back then. This ruler technique is a Dou
Technique that made him renowned. Its strength is extremely strong. The
only imperfection is that a ruler technique is somewhat unorthodox.
Unless one has studied this weapon for decades, it is likely that one
will have difficulty controlling it.”
TL: zun-zhe – respectful term that refers to a Dou Zun
Numerous exclamations sounded within the auction ground when they heard
the name of Six Joint zun-zhe. A Dou Zun, that was a level that was
extremely far from everyone present. Anything that was related to this
level would undoubtedly see its value soar. Hence, there were still quite
a number of people who were somewhat interested despite this weapon being
“Why? Are you interested?” The Little Fairy Doctor by the side
involuntarily laughed when she saw Xiao Yan suddenly sit up straight. She
naturally knew that the weapon that Xiao Yan specialized in was that
enormous black ruler. Moreover, this so Six Joint Body Flowing Ruler was
of quite a high level. Its origin was also extraordinary. It was only
natural for Xiao Yan to be interested.
Xiao Yan’s eyes stared intently at the bright-red scroll. He smiled and
nodded. The Heavy Xuan Ruler had been used by him for quite a number of
years and he was already used to it. He did not wish to change to other
weapons, but other than the Flame Splitting Tsunami, a pure offensive
skill, he did not have any other ruler Dou Techniques he could use.
Although, he had mastered a kind of ruler technique that rolled endlessly
like a large ocean through his own comprehension, this kind of ruler
technique was far too immature. He would need to refine it a thousand
times over in order for it to be useful. Hence, it did not possess any
great importance to the current Xiao Yan.
Therefore, the ‘Six Joint Body Flowing Ruler’ that had appeared in
this place suited Xiao Yan’s needs. It was just that he did not know
how great its strength would be once he successfully practiced it.
“Ke ke, this ruler technique Dou Technique auction price is set at one
million and eight hundred thousand. Any increase in bid must not be less
than ten thousand.” The white-haired old man smiled and spoke. He
glanced at the auction grounds where private conversations had erupted.
“So… everyone, please place your bid.”
A temporarily calm followed after the white-haired old man’s voice
sounded. One million eight hundred thousand was considered a large sum
for some small factions while some large factions prefered to wait until
the end before deciding the conclusion at one go. It was because of this
that such a silence occurred.
The expression of the white-haired old man did not change when faced with
this completely silent situation. A warm smile remained on his face as
his gaze slowly swept around.
“One million eight hundred and thirty thousand.” The silence
continued for around half a minute before it was broken by a bid that was
transmitted from behind.
This biding price had just sounded when it appeared to have triggered a
chain reaction. Bids were cried out one after another. Within less than
five minutes, the price was raised to one million nine hundred and eighty
thousand. This was the highest price that this auction had seen since the
“Two million five hundred thousand.”
The sudden leap of price immediately caused an uproar to resound across
the entire auction. Numerous gazes immediately followed the sound of the
voice and glanced over. Finally, they stopped on a human figure that was
completely wrapped in a black robe seated in the front VIP seats.
The person who shouted the bid was naturally Xiao Yan. He had quite the
interest in this ‘Six Joint Body Flowing Ruler’. However, he did not
have too many gold coins on him. After adding them up, there was only at
the very most around three million or so. Yet, he clearly knew that it
was pointless to slowly add bids in this kind of auction. Since he wanted
to compete, he should just issue a high price that his competitors would
not dare to match.
Due to that pill refinement storm back then and the Little Fairy Doctor
by his side, the current Xiao Yan was someone whom others in the VIP
seats paid attention to. Hence, the moment he opened his mouth, many
surprised gazes from the VIP seats were thrown over.
Xiao Yan acted as though he had not noticed the many gazes that contained
mixtures of various emotions. He only threw his gaze toward the auction
stage and waited for others to increase the bid. He knew that quite a
number of people in the VIP seats would be interested given the
attraction of this Six Joint Body Flowing Ruler. This two million five
hundred thousand price might have a great deterrence for an ordinary
person, but it was nothing to these extremely rich large factions.
“Two million five hundred and fifty thousand.”
As Xiao Yan had expected, a voice quickly followed not long after he
shouted his price. His gaze followed and voice and looked over. The
person who had shouted the new price was a large middle-aged man with a
burly appearance. The eyes of this person were fiery hot as he looked at
the auction stage. Clearly, he greatly coveted this Six Joint Body
“Three million.” Xiao Yan spoke in a faint voice and threw all of his
fortune in one go. Currently, he only had this many gold coins. However,
he did not feel any guilt. If he took out some random high tier medicinal
pills from his Storage Ring, their value would definitely not be much
lower than this Di class scroll. Nevertheless, he was intending to leave
those medicinal pills until the end to compete for the Bodhisattva Body
Transformation Saliva. Hence, he did not wish to waste them midway
through. Therefore, unless he had no other choice, it would be best if he
did not take out any medicinal pills.

Xiao Yan’s ruthless increase in his bid had caused the expression of
that middle-aged man to change. He was just about to harden his heart and
continue when a couple of people beside him extended their hands and
pulled him back. Offending a tier 6 alchemist and an elite Dou Zong for
just the scroll of a ruler Dou Technique was not worthwhile.
The large middle-aged man woke up from the wild heat that was brought
about by the Six Joint Body Flowing Ruler after he was stopped by his
companions. His gaze turned to Xiao Yan’s side and coincidentally saw
the indifferent eyes of the Little Fairy Doctor. His entire body trembled
as he swallowed a mouthful of saliva. All he could do was bitterly return
to his seat.
“Three million, is there any higher price?” The white-haired old man
smiled as he looked around and asked. This price did not exceed the worth
of the Six Joint Body Flowing Ruler, but he also knew just what Xiao Yan
and the Little Fairy Doctor represented. An ordinary person would not
dare to go all out to to bid against them even if they wished to. It
seemed that they would have to lose out a little on the auction of this
Six Joint Body Flowing Ruler.
The white-haired old man’s words reverberated through the auction
grounds. There was still no reply after a while. Looking at the way Xiao
Yan bid both times, it was clear that he was intending to obtain the Six
Joint Body Flowing Ruler at all cost. An ordinary person could not
compete with him while the people on the VIP seats did not wish to form
enmity with him due to Xiao Yan’s status as a tier 6 alchemist and the
Little Fairy Doctor’s strength. Their ultimate aim was the Bodhisattva
Body Transformation Saliva. Offending a tier 6 alchemist and a Dou Zong
here was not a wise act.
The silence continued in the auction ground for around half a minute
before the white-haired old man helplessly shook his head. He was just
about to lower his small hammer when a voice suddenly sounded.
“Three million one hundred thousand.”
The sudden bid that was cried out caused many people to feel startled.
Their gazes immediately followed the voice and glanced over. Some
surprise surged within their eyes. Why did this fellow launch a competing
bid against that mysterious alchemist?
Xiao Yan brows were tightly knit together when that bid was cried out.
His gaze looked over only immediately feel stunned. A strange expression
surfaced on his face. It was for no reason other than the one who issued
the bid was not a stranger but rather his second brother, Xiao Li.
The Little Fairy Doctor and Zi Yan were both astounded by this unexpected
turn of events. The both of them smiled. It was unexpected that these two
brothers had ended up competing with each other…
In front of the many stunned gazes, Xiao Li, who had stood up, revealed a
cold and stern face covered with a helpless, bitter smile. He knew that
issuing a bid at this moment was clearly making things difficult for that
mysterious alchemist. However, this ruler technique Dou Technique was
clearly quite strong. He might not specialize in ruler techniques, but he
had to keep his third brother in mind. He knew that his third brother’s
weapon was a large ruler. The latter’s strength would definitely
increase greatly if this Dou Technique landed in his hands. Hence, after
repeated hesitation, he was finally unable to endure any longer and ended
up shouting a price…
Beside Xiao Li, Su Qian’s expression was also one that was helpless. He
knew that Xiao Li’s bid was because of Xiao Yan. However, they will
have offended that mysterious alchemist by bidding. Most importantly,
offending that mysterious alchemist was equivalent to offending that
Although he felt a helplessness in his heart, Su Qian did not attempt to
stop Xiao Li. He knew that Xiao Li was always thinking of Xiao Yan and
would naturally not easily give up such an opportunity to allow Xiao
Yan’s strength to soar. This was even if doing this might offend a tier
6 alchemist and an elite Dou Zong.
Xiao Yan shook his head in front of the many gazes, feeling neither able
to laugh nor cry. He mused a little and naturally knew why Xiao Li wanted
to purchase this ruler technique Dou Technique. His heart was
Since Xiao Li wanted to compete, Xiao Yan would naturally not fight with
him. After all, the thing would eventually end up in his hands regardless
of who won. He immediately shook his head slightly and slowly shrank back
into his chair in front of the many stunned gazes.
The faces of quite a number of people in the VIP seats were stunned when
they saw that Xiao Yan had actually given up competing. A moment later,
some factions with enmity for ‘Xiao Gate’ immediately began to throw
their gloating eyes toward Xiao Li. From the way they saw it, this action
of Xiao Li would definitely offend that mysterious alchemist. In this
way, the little worry that came from how the Little Fairy Doctor treated
Xiao Li courteously back then instantly disappeared. Currently, they need
not worry about ‘Xiao Gate’ cooperating with that mysterious
Xiao Li was also startled when he saw that the mysterious alchemist had
given up. His heart slowly sank. The worst situation had just occurred…
Xiao Li’s eyes exchanged glances with Su Qian by the side and the two
of them softly sighed. The corner of their mouths contained a somewhat
bitter taste. Even someone as strong as Su Qian could not help but
quietly sigh in his heart given that they had offend a tier 6 alchemist
and an elite Dou Zong.
It was natural that no one else in the VIP seats would bid after Xiao Li
had bid. This was because quite a number of people were extremely happy
to see ‘Xiao Gate’ offending the mysterious alchemist. Hence, they
would naturally not intervene. From the way they saw it, this ruler
technique Dou Technique had already become a hot potato. Anyone who
pulled it into their hands would draw the enmity of the mysterious
Under this attitude of everyone, that Di class Middle level ‘Six Joint
Body Flowing Ruler’ was easily bagged by Xiao Li…
