“Yun Xi? You named it Yun Xi?” The girl crouched next to the weed.
“Why does it sound a little like a girl’s name?” she asked suspiciously.
Qin Jue: “…”
Indeed, he was not the only one with such thoughts.
“Or maybe, it was a girl all along?” The girl tilted her head and observed carefully, trying to find some clues.
Qin Jue: “…”
Don’t you know that weeds are generally unisex?
Uh… Speaking of which, if Yun Xi really took human form in the future, would it be male or female?
Thinking of this, even Qin Jue couldn’t help feeling a little curious.
Suddenly, “Yun Xi” waved a blade of grass and stabbed it towards the young girl, bringing about a sharp sound as it tore through the air. Fortunately, the young girl reacted quickly and immediately dodged it.
With the toughness of Yun Xi’s body, the attacks it sent out were almost no weaker than swords and sabers. Ordinary people would be easily pierced through; fortunately, the young girl was not an ordinary person.
“Why does it hate me so much?” The young girl was very depressed.
In fact, Qin Jue also found this fact very strange. The young girl probably never did anything to offend Yun Xi, yet it always seemed to be full of hostility towards her.
“I don’t know. Maybe… it doesn’t like women?” Qin Jue made a guess.
“Hmph, forget it. I should focus on cultivating.” The young girl curled her lips and continued to sit cross-legged to cultivate. She had no lessons today and had just broken through. Rather than competing with a weed, she might as well focus on cultivating.
Seeing this, Qin Jue helplessly shrugged his shoulders. He simply took out the spirit tablet to play with it again.
After a day or so of research, Qin Jue almost had a thorough understanding of the spirit tablet now. This thing was indeed similar to the tablet computers in his previous life. The only difference was that it couldn’t play games, but it could connect to the Spiritnet to search for news and to watch livestreams. It even had chat functions.
Of course, the most important thing was that every user could put what they wanted to buy or sell on the homepage for others to browse. It was equivalent to a huge online store platform.
This was undoubtedly much more convenient for the world of cultivation.
In addition, top forces like the Four Major Sects had their own official accounts. Qin Jue looked through them and found that most of their posts were about some “inspection”, some “gala”, or “communication” activities. They were basically no different from those companies on Earth.
As for Xuanyi Mountain Sect, it was located in a remote area and was relatively insignificant, and in addition, it was Bai Ye’s first time coming into contact with a spirit tablet, so naturally, they didn’t have an official account set up yet.
On the other hand, the Wei Clan still had an official account, but it only existed in name.
A moment later, Qin Jue felt a little bored, so he opened the livestream interface.
Actually, the livestreams were not just limited to dancing. There were also many technical categories such as weapon forging and pill refinement. It was exceptionally rich.
As Qin Jue had created an “AK-47” before, he was most interested in weapon forging and directly clicked into one of the weapon-forging livestreams.
In fact, he knew very little about forging. When he was forging the AK-47, he had relied on improvisation and basic foundational knowledge. Even the runes used were the lowest-level ones without any attributes.
However, he was simply too strong. Even if it was just a “half-finished product” that he casually created, its power was still tremendous, comparable to an ordinary Supreme Stage spirit artifact. If he had better material, it might have been even more powerful.
“Everyone, watch carefully. Next, I will use the Three Primordial True Fires to temper this piece of red iron,” said the host on the screen.
The so-called Three Primordial True Fires were actually the fire spirit energy of an Earth Stage cultivator. Thus, if one wanted to become a weapon forger, they had to be at least an Earth Stage cultivator. Otherwise, they wouldn’t even be able to reach the threshold for the task.
Red iron, on the other hand, was a very ordinary forging material. According to the introduction in “Basic Knowledge of Weapon Forging”, red iron was blood-red in color and could only be refined into a Yellow Stage spirit artifact at most, unless one could draw out a large number of runes at once like Qin Jue did and forcibly increase its grade.
In other words, this broadcaster should be refining a Yellow Stage spirit artifact, which belonged to the elementary level.
If it were anyone else, they might not even bother to look at it. After all, a Yellow Stage spirit artifact was complete trash in the eyes of a high-level cultivator, but Qin Jue watched it with relish.
As the saying went, people generally aimed too high.
Although Qin Jue had refined an AK-47 that could kill a Heaven Stage cultivator, strictly speaking, his attainments in weapon forging were not even comparable to a Yellow Stage weapon forger.
Besides, every weapon forger had his or her own secrets, so how could they show their true ability in a livestream?
The streamer in front of him was obviously the same. His technique was very skillful, and he refined the red iron not long after.
“Next, I’ll shape it while drawing runes. This set of runes is the Five Elements Formation from the ‘Book of Dao Runes’, and it can greatly increase the might of spirit artifacts. Moreover, it possesses the enhancement of the five elements — metal, wood, water, fire, and earth.
The “Book of Dao Runes” was one of the most widespread weapon-forging books in the Spirit Central World, and the Five Elements Formation recorded within it was the earliest rune-making secret technique that was enhanced by the power of the five elements. Unfortunately, with the passage of time, more and more formidable runes had appeared, and the Five Elements Formation gradually became ordinary and, basically, a common commodity.
Half an hour later, the man on the screen shouted softly. After a series of buzzing sounds, a red long sword that was as clear as a crystal gemstone had been forged. There were five silver runes wrapped around the sword. They seemed complicated and obscure. This was the Five Elements Formation.
“Hu, Yellow Stage spirit artifact, Red Sword, completed!”
The man heaved a sigh of relief. “How is it? Not bad, right? If you like what you see, don’t forget to click the subscribe button.”
After watching the whole process of the man forging the red sword, Qin Jue fell into deep thought.
So… forging weapons was this simple?
Since he was tempted, he might as well take action.
Qin Jue immediately got up and went to the Weapon Forging Pavilion and found the “Book of Dao Runes”. He then used his identity as the vice sect master to obtain a pile of high-grade materials and prepared to personally forge a spirit artifact.
Just like last time, Qin Jue still decided to forge a firearm. With higher-level materials, he believed that the weapon he forged this time would far surpass that AK-47.
“The Five Elements Formation was the first rune markings to be discovered that were enhanced by five elements…”
After carefully studying the Five Elements Formation for a while, Qin Jue casually laid down a barrier to isolate all sounds and prevent them from affecting the young girl cultivating beside him.
Although these materials were extremely sturdy and even Heaven Stage experts would find it difficult to destroy, Qin Jue melted them easily in less than a second and then slowly molded the weapon in his memory.
About two minutes later, a rough-looking object with six barrels was in Qin Jue’s hands, weighing hundreds of kilograms. If an Earthling were here, they would definitely recognize that Qin Jue had made the Gatling gun!
Of course, what he refined was only the shape of one. After all, runes were the main part.
“Five Elements Formation…”
Qin Jue’s fingers moved slightly as he carefully controlled his spirit energy and began to draw runes on the Gatling gun.
