The Demon Sect Refining Technique is a very magical thing.
In a sense, it is not a traditional refining technique, It is clearly different from other refining methods.
For example, it does not require a substantial refining furnace.
The mastermind who created this technique was truly a genius in the art of refining, proposing the concept of “using the mind of the crafter as the furnace, using the intention to refine the material, and gathering the spirit of heaven and earth to create the artifact”.
Luo Wusheng soon understood that this was a very idealistic refining technique.
It doesn’t require too many procedures, nor does it require an understanding of the working principle of the Magical Artifact. The most important thing is whether you can conceive a complete and clear form of the Artifact, select the right and suitable raw materials to make the Artifact, and induce the most suitable power of heaven and earth to merge into it.
Overall, it looks like a simple process.
But in practice, it’s not that simple.
The first step is relatively simple, just envision a suitable form of the Artifact that you want to make.
The difficulty lies in the second step.
It is necessary to choose suitable raw materials and refine them with intention to determine the subsequent changes in the raw materials.
This requires a high degree of familiarity with the characteristics of the raw materials themselves, as well as precise operation and powerful mental support.
Of course, these are still just surface-level processes. There are many special procedures that Luo Wusheng has not fully understood yet.
Finally, in the third step, it is purely a facial step.
Merging the embryonic form of the artifact with the power of heaven and earth and transforming it into a true magical artifact.
This step is not difficult.
However, this step determines the future of the magic artifact refined by this technique.
This step is the reason why there are side effects on the artifact that are created by the Demon Sect Refining Technique.
Although Luo Wusheng also doesn’t understand the principle, he guesses that it may have something to do with some strange impurities mixed in the power of heaven and earth that is infused into the weapon.
Luo Wusheng sat cross-legged on the ground, thinking and studying while occasionally taking out a few ordinary stones and attempting to refine them using the magic refining method.
His learning speed was very fast, perhaps because this body was indeed a genius.
“The method of refining with intent has some similarities with my self-created Unborn Finger.”
Luo Wusheng pointed at a nearby spirit stone.
The spirit stone quickly became dim and eventually shattered.
This was his self-created unique spell, “Unborn Finger,” which meant “where the finger falls, there would be death.”
It was also a method of using one’s own intent to control spells.
However, the magic refining technique used the meaning of “refining and transforming all things.”
“Perhaps I can also incorporate some of my own understanding and try it out…”
There is a city wide ban, and the gate of the royal city is closed.
Miss Kirin from the Six Gates Bureau returns to the Royal City with a group of her subordinates after investigating outside the city.
“Oh? Isn’t this Kirin? Are you also investigating demonic monsters outside the city today?” A voice calls out from the shadows, and a person slowly reveals themselves.
The person is wearing black clothes and a mask with feather patterns.
“Night Crow? What are you doing here?” Miss Kirin’s voice sounds surprised.
This person is also one of the Six Gates Bureau’s gold-ranked members, with the title of Night Crow, but he is not that famous among the masses.
Among the seven gold-ranked members of the Six Gates Bureau, only he does not directly handle cases within the bureau, but his existence is also irreplaceable because he controls the entire bureau’s secret intelligence network – the spies.
“In recent days, some people in the Royal City have been behaving strangely, and some things that are not in line with common sense have happened. Some people who should not come to the Royal City have also arrived,” Night Crow’s tone is gloomy. “I need to investigate whether there are unexpected intruders in the Royal City that are not in the intelligence reports.”
“Things that are not in line with common sense? People who should not come to the Royal City?” Miss Kirin’s voice also sounds serious. “Did the spies get any unexpected intelligence?”
“Have you not seen the intelligence reports that the spies have sent in recent days?” Night Crow is not surprised by Miss Kirin’s response, so he nods his head. “You know, I’m already overwhelmed dealing with the demonic monster cases on my plate.”
“The current location is not suitable for discussion. You can go back and read the spy’s reports for specific events…” Night Crow seemed to think of something and his tone became playful. “But there is a funny story that I can share with you.”
“A funny story?”
“Ten days ago, the Demon Sect’s Holy Saint, Luo Wusheng, took on the task of becoming the head of the Demon Artifact Pavilion, which had been vacant for a year, and set sail on the same day. He just arrived in the capital today, and I saw him heading straight to the Demon Artifact Pavilion after entering the city.”
After Night Crow finished speaking, he realized that the group of catchers in front of him had no reaction at all.
So he continued, “When I first got this information, I thought the spy had messed up. I couldn’t believe this fake news… but the spy on the ship confirmed it.”
“At that time, I just felt that this Demon Sect Holy Saint must have something wrong with his brain. Guess what happened next?”
The answer was still silence.
Night Crow rolled his eyes under his mask and thought that this was such a boring group of people.
But he had no choice but to continue.
“Yesterday, the spy sent a new report by using a hawk. Three days ago, the Demon Sect Holy Maiden, Bai Xiaoyao, also took the same ship and came to the capital, working as a small clerk in the Demon Artifact Pavilion!”
“The Demon Sect Holy Maiden would not do anything meaningless. It seems that something will happen in the Demon Artifact Pavilion.”
“Now there are several spies secretly monitoring the Demon Artifact Pavilion, and one spy has been in contact with the clerk in the Pavilion for several days. I think we will soon get some information.”
Night Crow finished speaking, but found that the group of people in front of him remained motionless.
After cursing a few words in his heart, he once again merged into the shadow.
“Since you’re not interested, I’ll talk to other Golden-ranked members about this. Their reactions will definitely be more interesting than yours,” the voice grew quieter as Night Crow left the area.
However, what he didn’t know was that if they took off their masks, the expressions on the faces of these catchers would be much more entertaining than anyone else’s.
Including Miss Kirin, all they could hear echoing in their minds was one question.
Is he really the Holy Saint of the Demon Sect?
What were all their doubts and speculations before?
“…Did I really tell the Holy Saint of the Demon Sect to go to a mental hospital to get some help?”
One Catcher was trembling all over.
“And what about me? I told him to go to the Heart-Nourishing Pavilion!”
Another catcher’s hands and feet were icy cold.
This group of catchers, who had previously been filled with imagination about Luo Wusheng’s insanity and later thought he was being ostracized by his peer in the Demon Sect, had faces that were now red with embarrassment.
But they all silently turned their gaze to Miss Kirin in front of them.
As they thought about their boss, who had also died waiting for the arrival of their comrades, they seemed to find it easier to accept the situation.
Miss Kirin also remembered what she had said to this group of underlings earlier.
After a slight hesitation, she shook her head.
“You all really disappoint me. I gave you hints, but not a single one of you realized that he is the Demon Sect’s Holy Saint.”
The eyes behind the masks of the catchers widened.
What’s going on? Did Miss Kirin already realize that he was the Demon Sect’s Holy Saint?
“Who in today’s Demon Sect has achieved the level of mid-stage Golden Core cultivation state under fifty? And who, other than the Holy Saint who won the fierce competition for the title, would have the courage to come to the capital alone and rebuild the Demon Sect’s Demon Artifact Pavilion?”
Under Miss Kirin’s words, the catchers seemed to be lost in thought.
Miss Kirin nodded satisfactorily.
She herself was starting to believe in the nonsense she had made up.
“Your investigative abilities are still inadequate. After the case of the demonic monsters is over, all of you need to redo your lessons.”
The wailing at the city gate was deafening.
