Bringing The Farm To Live In Another World - Chapter 1125
Chapter 1125 – Uses of the Liquid Metal Sphere
Desbarres, Zhao Hai, and Tao w.a.n.g were standing in front of a sphere of liquid metal. After some time, Desbarres said, “Little Hai, do you really want this thing? Aren’t you afraid of getting just this one and nothing else?”
Zhao Hai repeatedly nodded, then he turned to Desbarres and said, “Camp Lord, I need to obtain it. As long as I have it, I don’t care about anything else.”
Desbarres looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Can you tell me why you want it? Is it just because of your instinct?”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “It’s not just because I feel it. I also want to try and see if I can succeed in engraving the formations. I want to make it a true weapon.”
As soon as he heard Zhao Hai, Desbarres couldn’t help but stare. Then he said, “You really want to try?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I’d like to give it a try. This weapons needs 129,600 formations and then another 1890 formations after adding other materials. I think I can do both of it. I also have some materials that can add to it. If I can succeed, then even if I cannot display all of the weapon’s strength, I can still go against experts in the Cultivation Realm.”
When Desbarres and Tao w.a.n.g heard Zhao Hai, they let out a sigh. They shook their heads at the same time then Desbarres said, “Little Hai, if this is your reason, then I suggest you just forget it. A lot of people thought about this before but weren’t successful in the end. This is because the weapon has high requirements for added materials. The materials that can be added to it are limited in number. It also needs to be a material that can handle a lot of formations. Even if you can engrave the formations, if the material is not enough, then you still wouldn’t succeed. I tried it before and I failed. You should give up.
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Camp Lord, Big Brother Tao, rest a.s.sured. I’m not doing this on a whim. I want it.”
Zhao Hai found that the two didn’t want to give him this weapon wasn’t because they were reluctant, they just thought that it wouldn’t have any use for Zhao Hai. And if others know that the weapon was in Zhao Hai’s hands, then he would be in unnecessary danger.
Desbarres and Tao w.a.n.g saw Zhao Hai’s conviction, they didn’t say anything and just nodded. Then Desbarres said, “Alright, take it. Take two items for yourself as well. Even if you can complete it, you still can’t use it right now. You need things to protect yourself.”
Zhao Hai smiled at Tao w.a.n.g and Desbarres, then he said, “Camp Lord, Big Brother Tao, there’s no need. I’ll use the remaining one month before the family compet.i.tion to complete this.”
Desbarres stared, then his expression changed as he said, “Little Hai, listen to me, your that wouldn’t be good. You choose two items, one weapon and one defensive item.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Camp Lord, rest a.s.sured, I’m quite confident in this. Actually, in the lower realms, I once took a risk and was able to obtain a treasure. The treasure’s name is measureless golden sand. It is produced from earth fire and can be used for refining. I intend to use it to complete this weapon. I believe I can succeed.”
Desbarres paused after hearing Zhao Hai. They also heard about measureless golden sand. It was a formidable treasure that didn’t only give the metal attribute, it also had s.p.a.ce attribute. It’s quite a rare crafting material. If Zhao Hai really has this, then he could certainly try completing the weapon.
Seeing Desbarres and Tao w.a.n.g’s appearance, Zhao Hai smiled faintly and then waved his hand. He took out a crystal jar. Inside the jar wasn’t wine nor other liquor. Instead, what was inside was a glistening golden sand.
Zhao Hai handed the jar over to Desbarres and said, “Camp Lord, I’m giving this bottle of measureless golden sand to the camp. A refiner in the camp should be able to use it. I don’t have much in my hands and I still need to leave some for the weapon.”
Desbarres’ eyes shone when he heard Zhao Hai. Then upon receiving the bottle of golden sand, he laughed and said, “Kid, you really have a lot of good things on hand. Alright, I’ll accept this. But if you still aren’t able to complete the weapon in one month, then you need to come back here and pick two items.”
Zhao Hai showed a smile and said, “Alright, then I agree. Camp Lord can rest a.s.sured.”
Desbarres nodded, then he walked over to the cabinet with the liquid metal sphere. He tapped for a light screen to appear and then entered a pa.s.scode. The gla.s.s covered opened and the liquid metal sphere was revealed.
It was a sphere a meter in diameter and looked like a huge metal bubble. The metal surface was still flowing. And most importantly, this thing was floating inside the gla.s.s cabinet.
Seeing the metal, Zhao Hai’s eyes shone. Then he waved his hand, sending the liquid metal to the s.p.a.ce. After storing the item, he turned to Desbarres and said, “Camp Lord, let’s head back.”
Desbarres nodded and placed the measureless golden sand into the cabinet. Then he turned around and left the treasury along with Tao w.a.n.g and Zhao Hai.
Upon leaving the treasury, Zhao Hai immediately returned to his room. He already told Desbarres that he would be closing up. Then he went to the s.p.a.ce.
The moment Zhao Hai introduced the sphere of metal to the s.p.a.ce, a prompt was heard, “Synthesized liquid metal sphere detected. Liquid metal can be used in conjunction with magic formations. Liquid metal can be a.n.a.lyzed through the Universal Scanner. Liquid metal can also be reconstructed through the Universal Processing Machine. Liquid metal can be unified with the Host’s staff. The staff will turn silver and will increase in strength. The staff will then help the Host in using formations and layered formations. The original abilities of the staff will remain unchanged.”
Zhao Hai nodded at the prompt. He understood that the sphere of liquid metal could be joined with his staff. Moreover, since this metal can aid in using magic formations, the staff could also a.s.sist him in using Magic Theory.
Zhao Hai’s staff could still a.s.sist him in using magic formations before, but not much. This was because even if the staff had a lot of materials, like the 12 ultimate weapons, the h.e.l.l King’s ship, as well as its other upgrades, these materials weren’t specially designed for Magic Theory. They were more inclined towards the Cultivation Realm’s formations. Zhao Hai was able to use magic formations with the staff entirely because the staff was able to transform itself and change to suit magic formations.
But now, if the liquid metal was incorporated to the staff, the staff would now have compatibility for formations. It can be said that the staff was now geared for Magic Theory.
It was because he heard this prompt that Zhao Hai quickly returned to the s.p.a.ce. He wanted to see what other pleasant surprises the liquid metal could give gim.
Upon entering the s.p.a.ce, Laura immediately welcomed him. Zhao Hai looked at them and said, “What happened to the liquid metal?”
Laura smiled and said, “I’m sorry, Brother Hai. We’ve already fed that thing to the scanner. Once it’s done a.n.a.lyzing, you can have a look.”
Zhao Hai couldn’t help but smile bitterly and said, “You’re really impatient. If I came later, then would you have already completed it?”
Laura smiled faintly and said, “We can’t do that. We know that the process is beneficial to you. We just want to see the item’s composition.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and then turned to Cai’er and said, “Cai’er, after the liquid metal is done being a.n.a.lyzed, fuse it to the staff. Also, have the scanner find the most compatible 14,850 formations for the metal. Then add those formations into the staff.”
Cai’er smiled and said, “Young Master, there’s no need to do that. Even if a compatible set is found, you still wouldn’t be able to find a use for it. After the liquid metal combines with the staff, it would also be integrated to the s.p.a.ce. So as long as a formation is a.n.a.lyzed by the scanner, the staff would have it. However, with Young Master’s current strength, you still wouldn’t be able to use formation sets over a hundred layers. But after your strength is improved, you can even use millions of layered formation sets. Therefore, there’s really no need for you to a.n.a.lyze formations for the staff.”
Upon hearing Cai’er, Zhao Hai’s expression lit up. Then he said, “Really? Will the staff really change that much after adding the liquid metal? Right, the liquid metal hasn’t been combined with the staff, how do you know its effects?”
Cai’er replied, “Young Master, don’t forget that when the liquid metal entered the s.p.a.ce, it has already been branded. Now that the s.p.a.ce is level 150, as long as it brands something, then it will immediately carry on an initial a.n.a.lysis. Therefore, although the liquid metal hasn’t been unified with the staff, the s.p.a.ce can already figure out its future ability.”
Zhao Hai nodded. His face was lit up, he was just too happy. The stronger the staff was, the better it was for him. With his current strength, he could only use thousand-layer formations. And after adding the liquid metal, the staff unexpectedly increased his ability by 100 times. This would allow him to layer about 100 thousand magic formations. This was absolutely good news for Zhao Hai.
According to Leng Wuyeng’s deduction, as long as one could use 100 thousand layer formations, then they could contend with general powerhouses in the Cultivation Realm. This means that as long as the liquid metal merged with Zhao Hai’s staff, then Zhao Hai would have means of protecting himself in the World of Cultivation.
This was what made Zhao Hai glad the most. The reason he flew to the Machine Field was because he had enemies in the Cultivation Realm. If he ascended in the Cultivation Realm, then most experts there would squash him. Because of this, he didn’t dare enter Cultivation Realm.
After knowing the result, Zhao Hai relaxed. He didn’t proceed to condense magic formations. This was because he had already condensed all formations that were made public. After thousands of years of development, the Machine Field made more than 13 million formations. If all of these formations were layered together, then its power was surely hard to imagine. Zhao Hai can be sure that even experts in the Cultivation Realm wouldn’t be able to block formations made with a million layers.
However, with Zhao Hai’s present strength, his limit was only a thousand layers. He has to rely on the staff and liquid metal to use 100 thousand layer formations.
What Zhao Hai must do at this time was to practice the Stellar Tempering Body Technique. This wondrous benefits to the technique seemed infinite. And there was also the fist technique that could be used against the enemy. Zhao Hai believed that as long as he practiced, he will certainly gain great advantages.
In the beginning, Zhao Hai could only practice the tempering technique for two hours each day. But after days of practice, he was able to increase it to three hours. One shouldn’t look down on this one hour of increase. For Zhao Hai, this additional hour can make double the effects of the body tempering technique.
Besides practicing the Stellar Body Tempering Technique and practicing his layered formations, Zhao Hai was also busy with another matter, researching the composition of magic runes.
Actually, Zhao Hai himself couldn’t remember and understand all magic runes. His ability to use magic runes was mainly the s.p.a.ce’s merit, not his own accomplishment. The s.p.a.ce was like an automatic memory storage, recording all of the runes that had been seen. Whenever Zhao Hai saw a rune, the s.p.a.ce would immediately give him the relevant information about it.
However, in the end, these things didn’t belong to Zhao Hai. Because of this, he could only use existing formations, he cannot create new ones. This was also the s.p.a.ce’s biggest weak point. The s.p.a.ce was merely a tool that can help you accomplish tasks. It cannot help you create something new. Without a proper understanding of the core principles, Zhao Hai wouldn’t be able to create new things.
Therefore, Zhao Hai began studying magic runes by himself. This way, he can create his own formations. And with the s.p.a.ce, he wasn’t afraid of making trash formations. What he needs to do was write magic formations down and a.n.a.lyze them.
Chapter 1126 – Heading Out
Zhao Hai spent the entire month practicing inside the s.p.a.ce. Ever since the staff and the liquid metal fused together, Zhao Hai gave it the name Liquid Silver. Zhao Hai also took this time to get familiar with Liquid Silver. At this moment Zhao Hai could use 100 thousand-layer formations sets.
Since Zhao hai already told Desbarres that he needed to close up, Desbarres gave the word that n.o.body should disturb him. Besides hoping Zhao Hai to prepare for the beginner compet.i.tion’s qualifiers, Desbarres also hoped that Zhao Hai could complete the liquid metal. Not only would this give Zhao Hai benefits, this advantage would also extend to the Machine Field.
In this month, Zhao Hai practiced the Stellar Body Tempering Technique and also familiarize himself with his new staff. At this point, Liquid Silver could no longer be called a magic staff as it was now closer to being a magic artifact. It was more of an item than a weapon.
Liquid Silver didn’t only have the Blood Ghost Staff’s ability, it also gained the liquid metal’s characteristics. The staff can be used both offensively and defensively.
Zhao Hai wanted to see to what extent he could use the weapon. This way, he would know how to use his abilities more effectively.
Zhao hai could now use Liquid Silver to achieve 50 thousand layered formation sets. Even if it was 100 thousand, there wouldn’t be any need to spend too much time.
And just like what he expected, if he only used his spiritual force to use Magic Theory, then he could only use 1 thousand-layer formations. But with Liquid Silver’s support, his formations could reach 100 thousand layers. This strength was increased by nearly a hundred times.
In this one month, the Bone Symbol Camp was quite calm. Everyone did what they needed to do. Some of the less convinced members went to get tested. But after the test, they didn’t mention entering the Six Realm Beginner Compet.i.tion anymore.
And also during this time, Tao w.a.n.g and Desbarres were in agony. Zhao Hai wanted to close up, so they didn’t dare disturb him. They didn’t know anything about the liquid metal’s progress. Without any knowledge about Zhao Hai, the two couldn’t help but get more sleepless as the time limit was approaching.
Unlike the Bone Symbol Camp, the entire Machine Field wasn’t calm. The Bone Symbol Camp didn’t have any compet.i.tion for their partic.i.p.ants. However, the same wasn’t true for the other camps. They could only fight, sometimes kill, their opponents so that they could progress further and be chosen as the representative for their camp.
Every external hall camp in the Machine Field was filled with bloodshed. It was precisely because of the Bone Symbol Camp’s calmness that it was considered unique in the realm!
The newcomers of the Bone Symbol Camp were also paying attention to these compet.i.tions. After seeing the number of casualties each camp had, they quickly lost their motivation to join the compet.i.tion. The rewards might be very good, but you would need to take lives in order to gain it. And once they partic.i.p.ate in the qualifiers, if they didn’t win, they would either be injured or dead. If this happened, then they would have lost everything.
The internal compet.i.tion of the Ashley Family’s camps only lasted for three days. Three days later, the Ashley Family’s eight External Hall’s camps would proceed to compete with each other. Then they would select 10 ascenders to be the Ashley Family’s representatives in the Realm’s qualifiers.
One shouldn’t think that ten people from the Ashley Family was a very small number. Medium-sized influences in the Machine Field numbered several thousand. And if one adds those lower-sized powers, there would be even more partic.i.p.ants. The Ashley Family having a quota of ten people was already an evidence of their status in the Machine Field.
The common language of the Six Realms was strength. The more strength you had, the more benefits, advantages, and favors you would gain.
Every time the beginner compet.i.tion happens, the Machine Field would have a 100 slots. Compared to the thousands of ascenders who want to partic.i.p.ate, 100 slots was too small of a number. It was precisely because of this that the three major powers of the Machine Field carried on intense internal a.s.sessments for their representatives. In the end, each power was given a quota based on their strength. First-cla.s.s forces could send 20 people to the qualifiers, second-cla.s.s could send 15, third-cla.s.s was 10, fourth-cla.s.s was five, and then one for fifth-cla.s.s.
Naturally, this metric wasn’t absolute. But changes to quotas could only decrease, never increase.
With this setup, there would be over ten thousand people partic.i.p.ating in each realm qualifier. Selecting 100 people over more than ten thousand meant that the 100 left in the end would be the cream of the crop!
The Bone Symbol Camp didn’t gain any good results the last few times the Bone Symbol Camp partic.i.p.ated in the Ashley Family’s qualifiers. In the end, they didn’t get any slots in the realm qualifiers. It was precisely because of this that people thought that the Bone Symbol Camp had fallen.
But in the past few times that the Bone Symbol Camp had attended, they would at least send five people. But this time, Desbarres only listed on person, Zhao Hai!
If the eight camps want to enter the family’s internal compet.i.tion, then they would have to send their list of partic.i.p.ants a month before the event. Moreover, it was prohibited to change this list. This was because once people find out which people were partic.i.p.ating, then they might replace their partic.i.p.ants.
The Ashley Family decided to do it like this because they want the eight camps to investigate the partic.i.p.ants and get familiar with their fighting style. Besides the Bone Symbol Camp, all other camps sent ten partic.i.p.ants. Only the Bone Symbol Camp would submit less than the maximum number of people.
In the last compet.i.tion, the Bone Symbol Camp sent five people to partic.i.p.ate, but this time they only sent one. This caused an uproar in the Ashley Family. Not only the Ashley Family, the other people in the Machine Field were also baffled. They didn’t expect the Bone Symbol Camp to only send one person. In their minds, the Bone Symbol Camp has truly fallen.
As the days pa.s.sed, the day for the family’s compet.i.tion approached. However, Zhao Hai had yet to come out. Desbarres and Tao w.a.n.g couldn’t help but worry even more. They sent people to stroll outside Zhao Hai’s villa every day. They want to see if there were any sounds inside. But to their disappointment, Zhao Hai was completely silent.
On this day, Desbarres was currently sat inside his office, his face showing his anxiety. At this moment, Tao w.a.n.g entered the room. Upon seeing his a.s.sistant, Desbarres immediately asked, “Did he come out?” Tao w.a.n.g smiled and shook his head and said, “The family qualifiers is happening the day after tomorrow. If Little Hai fails to come out, then he would miss his chance for the Six Realms Beginner Compet.i.tion.”
Desbarres let out a long sigh. He smiled bitterly and said, “If he missed it, then he missed it. It’s also good if he doesn’t join. With the brutality of the compet.i.tion, he would be safer if he doesn’t join it. Moreover, since he had closed up for one month, then it means that the thing had some use for him. If he can make use of it, then it’s worth it even if he missed the compet.i.tion.”
Tao w.a.n.g nodded, then his eyes shone as he said, “If Little Hai can use that thing, then it wouldn’t only be the luck of the Bone Symbol Camp. It would also be the luck of the Ashley Family and the Machine Field.”
At this time, Desbarres’s computer made a sound. Desbarres looked at his wrist, the name on it made him stare. It was Zhao Hai calling him.
Desbarres stared for a moment before he opened his computer and happily greeted, “Little Hai!” Then Zhao Hai’s image can be seen on the screen.
Seeing Zhao Hai’s face, Desbarres asked, “Little Hai, how is it?” Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Camp Lord, I’ve completed it. I named it Liquid Silver. Right, Camp Lord, when will the family’s qualifiers start?”
Desbarres immediately replied, “The day after tomorrow. Are you done with everything? Me and Tao w.a.n.g want to see it.”
Zhao Hai understood what Desbarres wanted, he wanted to see Liquid SIlver. Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Alright. I’ll prepare some food while waiting for you.” Desbarres nodded, then he closed his computer and turned to Tao w.a.n.g, “Let’s go see Little Hai.”
Then he took off with Tao w.a.n.g following closely behind.
Tie Shen has been busy doing tasks outside, so he was rarely in the camp. However, he was coming back. After all, the Ashley Family’s internal compet.i.tion was approaching. For the camps, this event was very important. And now that the Bone Symbol Camp was only sending one partic.i.p.ant, this means that this was the most crucial event for the camp in the last 20 years. This was something that Tie Sheng wouldn’t want to miss.
Before long, Desbarres and Tao w.a.n.g arrived at Zhao Hai’s villa. Zhao Hai was already waiting for them in the living room. Tinkle was the one offering everyone food, Zhao Hai just sat.
When Desbarrres and Tao w.a.n.g entered the room, Zhao Hai smiled at them. He didn’t say anything and just waved his hand, taking his silver staff out. The staff was more than 2 meters long. Its entire body was bright silver and at its head was a nine-layered silver lotus. On each tip of the lotus were small bells.
Liquid Silver’s form didn’t differ too much from the Blood Ghost Staff. However, its aura changed. Now, the staff looked more holy compared to its fierce appearance from before.
