Chapter 424: Xu Xiaoshou: Something Is Wrong With Me!
“The heck, what does this Xu Xiaoshou mean”
As a famous figure in the first half of the competition, even though he had taken out his Tenth Grade alchemist badge, Xu Xiaoshou was still the focus of everyones attention.
However, no matter how much they looked forward to it, everyone was stunned when Xu Xiaoshou took out the bathtub and smashed it on the ground.
“Is he going to perform… boiling of water”
“Hes trying to fight isnt he With Xu Xiaoshous character, why would he say so much nonsense to senior Long Dan”
“For this fellow to be able to endure until now to show his hand, I already think highly of him!”
“The irascible Xu Xiaoshou is kicking some a*ses now”
Everyone knew that among the many old men present, there was basically not a single person who was a match for Xu Xiaoshou.
Even if the Long Dan was a Sixth Grade Alchemist, in terms of combat strength, it was likely that he wouldnt even be a match for an ordinary Upper Spirit Realm cultivator.
It was impossible for alchemists to fight.
“I dont have such intentions.”
Xu Xiaoshou waved his hand at the crowd and hurriedly explained, “Im just refining pills.
What are you guys thinking”
“Under suspicion, Passive Points, 886.”
“Xu Xiaoshou, are you kidding us Who the hell takes out the bathtub to refine pills Tell us honestly, are you going to boil Long Dan like a cup of rose tea”
Xu Xiaoshou was stunned by these words, while Long Dan was so angry that his beard almost flew off.
“Who, who is talking nonsense about this old man Stand out!”
With a swoosh, everyone withdrew their heads in unison, but they couldnt stop grinning.
They were all enjoying the joke.
Xu Xiaoshou shook his head.
These fellows were really too naughty.
Was it because they had been suppressed too ruthlessly by him previously and bounced back because they hit the bottom Were all of their personalities twisted
They actually made fun of others.
With a flick of his finger, Xu Xiaoshou didnt say anything more.
He directly shot a compressed fire seed under the pill cauldron.
Instantly, the bathtub began to burn red.
“Is it really alchemy”
“Under suspicion, Passive Points, 885.”
Although the way the fire started was different from ordinary people, some traces of alchemists skills could still be vaguely seen.
Long Dan was stunned.
He was close enough to clearly feel the overbearing power of the flame.
If it was a battle, he might not be sensitive, but with just a glance, he could see all the tricks involved in this high-speed rotating compressed flame seed.
“To use such a thick bath… er, pill cauldron to refine pills, and such an overbearing flame.”
“This Xu Xiaoshou, is he really Tenth Grade”
Long Dan sized Xu Xiaobei up and down, suddenly having an epiphany.
“Thats right, it should be because this flame is too overbearing and theres no way to control it, so its not suitable for refining pills.”
A hint of hidden greed flashed through his eyes.
This flame was too good.
If it was him who possessed it, even if it was because of his cultivation that he might not be able to control it very well, he would definitely be better than Xu Xiaoshou.
In addition to his various pill refinement techniques, under the continuous restrictions, he might be able to rely on this flame to push the quality of the pill up another level.
No matter how bad it was, he would still be better than those two old fellows!
Long Dan glanced at Chen Qi and Li Mingji from the corner of its eyes.
As expected, these two old fellows also knew.
Looking at the flame under Xu Xiaos pill cauldron, the heat from the smoldering look in their eyes was almost overflowing.
“Kid, what is the name of this flame of yours”
Chen Qi couldnt help but ask.
Xu Xiaoshou glanced at him and saw the Sixth Grade badge at one glance.
His gaze froze.
Then, he saw another Sixth Grade badge on the other side.
In just the duration it took to come out of the barrier, there were two more Sixth Grade badges on the field
He suddenly burst into laughter.
Wasnt the standard of this competition a little too high
Three Sixth Grade badges.
Sandwiched between them, wouldnt he become the dregs that would be crushed
Sighing, Xu Xiaoshou wasnt discouraged and replied,
“Seniors, dont even think about it.
You cant take away this flame.”
“First of all, you cant kill me.
Second, this thing can only be barely cultivated through the Innate Level Physique.”
“Its useless even if youre tempted.
The main reason is that your strength doesnt match up.
Even if I gave it to you for free, you wouldnt be able to handle it.”
The corners of the three peoples mouths twitched at the same time.
Everyone wasnt shameless.
How could you tell the truth so plainly.
“Cursed, Passive Points, 3.”
Everyone below the stage was amused.
Everyone could see that Xu Xiaoshous flames werent simple, but there were some things that they understood without having to be said.
This guy wasnt afraid at all.
He spoke bluntly! He was a ruthless person!
“Its different when you have strength.
Your words are much tougher than ours.”
“However, this ridicule is really good.
You cant handle it even if I gave it to you for free.
“Lauded, Passive Points, 464.”
The cauldron temperature was high enough.
Xu Xiaoshou suddenly took out a large handful of medicinal herbs and threw them all in.
Everyone was shocked.
They saw Xu Xiaoshou split the spiritual herbs in the large bathtub with his multitasking in that seemingly joking throw.
That smooth and seamless operation stunned everyone.
“Somethings not right.
This technique, its Tenth Grade”
“How the hell is Xu Xiaoshou multitasking More than ten, I think.
Damn, is his mental strength also so abnormal”
“Is this even letting people live”
“His combat strength is so strong, his pill refining technique is also…”
Everyone could see that the situation seemed to have gone out of control again.
A second ago, they wanted to condemn Xu Xiaoshous wastage, but in the next second, they were mesmerized by this guys godly skill.
There were clearly three Sixth Grade Alchemists on the side.
However, Xu Xiaoshou was like a seductive slut who had taken off her clothes.
All kinds of flirtatious actions, always making people inadvertently focus their attention on him.
“Attention Received, Passive Points, 677.”
Xu Xiaohe looked at the three Sixth Grade alchemists.
These old fogeys had already been so enthralled by his series of actions and had forgotten to refine pills.
He couldnt help but remind them:
“A round of refining pills only lasts for 15 minutes.
Why arent you guys doing anything”
“Brat, I still want to see your performance!”
The three of them felt their throats dry up.
Their techniques were just that of an ordinary alchemists techniques.
At most, the quality of the pills they refined was different.
There was no performance skills to speak of.
On the other hand, it was as if Xu Xiaoshou was really here to perform acrobatics.
There was the bathtub, the skillful multitasking, and such a special flame…
Long Dan snorted coldly.
With a wave of his hand, a bright white flame began heating the black cauldron.
Chen Qi also turned around and no longer paid attention to Xu Xiaoshou.
He began to warm up his own medicinal pills.
Li Mingji sneered.
However, before he turned around, Xu Xiaoshous voice had already drifted across the air.
“Ah, what a strong smell of vinegar.
Whats going on Someone took advantage of the gap in the alchemy process to start cooking and knocked over the vinegar jar”
The corners of the three peoples mouths twitched at the same time.
Their hands trembled, and they almost burned themselves.
“Cursed, Passive Points, 3.”
The audience burst into laughter.
The onlookers suddenly realized that if they were not facing Xu Xiaoshou as an opponent, they would have watched Xu Xiaohes various matches as an onlooker.
The process was extremely exciting!
“Is this guy crazy Is there really nothing in the world that hes afraid of”
“Three Sixth Grade badge! He offended them all in one go.
Does this guy still want to live Im afraid hell be banned!”
“Banned… its not that serious.”
“Look at Xu Xiaoshous various trump cards.
Maybe this guy really has a terrifying background”
“Didnt they say that hes just a mere Outer Yard Disciple of Tiansang Spirit Palace”
“How can an ordinary disciple have so many secret moves Speaking of which, dont you guys think that this flame looks a little familiar”
“Uh, I dont recognize it.”
Discussions broke out in the audience.
However, most of the audience present below were young people, while the older alchemists were basically all in the protective barrier on the stage.
On the other hand, the remaining leaders of the clans and forces, did not know much about Xu Xiaoshous flame.
Even if they had some impression of it, the memory was still blurry.
On the other hand, Elder Night Guardian fell into deep thoughts as he watched Xu Xiaoshous compressed flame seed.
This overbearing burning energy made him recall a past.
“Sleeveless Red Scorched Hand”
Before he become a Red Coat and was still a White Coat, he had participated in a mission in the central region.
The missions was to eliminate the largest branch of a secret organization in the central region.
The mission was indeed successful back then.
However, the leader of the branch that appeared at the end had relied on a pair of shriveled black scorched hands to carve out a bloody path through the White Coats.
He had escaped from the central region and had yet to be found even till now.
The scorching energy on Xu Xiaoshous body was indeed a little similar.
“There are many strange flames in the world, it may not necessarily the case.”
“At least, the White Cave is filled with this sort of scorching energy.
Perhaps the Tiansang Spirit Palace also has inheritances in this area.”
Night Guardian shook his head and didnt think about it anymore.
He watched Xu Xiaoshou refine pills.
However, this fellow didnt have any other actions after the big move at the beginning.
It was like a different person after entering the medicinal liquid refining stage.
Xu Xiaoshou began to become bored.
Other than looking left and right, he was too lazy to even bother with the pill cauldron.
The Night Guardians eyelids twitched.
To be honest, tonights banquet had allowed him to experience the vastness of the world.
There were all kinds of strange things.
This was really the first time he had seen a “Talent” like Xu Xiaoshou.
“This brat, what is he trying to do this time”
The crowd below was also not used to Xu Xiaoshous silence.
However, the unusual pill refinement techniques of the three Sixth Grade Alchemists soon attracted everyones attention.
Xu Xiaoshou was no exception.
His eyes were unfocused while hisPerception was staring intently at the pill refinement steps of these three people.
It was as though he was going to forcefully memorize them.
“Although it is three chances to refine pills, the essence, Qi, and spirit of the pill refinement are extremely important in pill refinement.
Hence, if these three want to win against each other, they will definitely have to use their strongest strength at the start.”
Xu Xiaoshou pondered.
He had his own plans.
Even if he were to give his “Culinary Proficiency” to a Grandmasters level, the highest grade pill formula he had was the “Star Separation Pill”.
The Star Separation Pill was a Seventh Grade top grade healing pill.
To the outside world, this was already very precious.
But at this moment, it cannot hold a candle to a Sixth Grade pill..
If Xu Xiaoshou wanted to refine this pill, he would definitely lose in the end.
Then, how could he win this competition
“Gulp Gulp Gulp…”
The medicinal liquid in front of him was boiling.
Other people might not be able to figure out what medicinal pill to refine because they were refining the medicinal ingredients at the same time, but Xu Xiaoshou understood very well that this batch of spirit refining pills was only a temporary transition.
He wanted to waste the time of the first match and use all his attention to memorize the pill formulas!
Thats right, memorize it!
And memorize three portions at once!
If others were to know what Xu Xiaoshou was thinking, they would probably be shocked to death on the spot.
However, with hisCulinary Proficiency, his understanding of almost all the medicinal herbs in the world, as well as his absolute control over the heat of the fire.
In addition to his extremely strong memory fromPerception, as well as the ability to rewind the scenes.
Xu Xiaoshou felt that this was not an extremely difficult task.
He tilted his head and observed the spirit herbs in the hands of the three Sixth Grade Alchemists.
“Fire Separation Flower, innate grade.
Looking at the state of its stalk and coarse hair, it should be around 18 years and 6 months old.
Fire attribute, slightly astringent, has the effect of expelling the cold and dampening the Yin.
Together with theFrost Lotus Seed, it can be used to boil theIce Fire Glazed Soup… Bah Bah.”
“I missed it.
This old dragon really has something.”
Xu Xiaoshou did his best to intercept half of his thoughts and continued to observe.
“This portion should be theFull Origin Star Leaf, a top-grade innate spiritual herb.
Looking at the star pattern, it should be six years old.”
If Its six years, it should be able to overflow with theStar Origin Saliva.
This is a treasure.
Its sweet and nutritious.
How could someone pluck this spiritual herb Its a waste!”
“And thisFive Leaf Wen,Yet Ming Seed…”
The more Xu Xiaoshou watched, the more excited he became.
These were all strange species that only existed in his mind and could not be seen on a normal day.
Today, due to the refinement of Sixth Grade medicinal pills, they appeared one after another.
Suddenly, Xu Xiaoshous gaze froze.
He finally found the obstacle.
He was indeed able to discern most of the spiritual herbs and medicinal properties, but the level ofCulinary Proficiency was too low.
If some rare Grandmaster spiritual herbs appeared, he really wouldnt be able to recognize them all.
“This wont do.
I must succeed in this current memorizing!”
Xu Xiaoshou sighed softly, and his eyes revealed a look of interest.
This was a bold attempt.
Copying the pill formula on the spot.
Once it was successful, it was destined to be priceless in the future!
“Passive value: 228,800.”
He glanced at the bottom of the information bar again.
That row of eye-catching numbers almost made Xu Xiaoshou cry out in surprise again.
Its not like Ive never seen so many numbers before.”
Xu Xiaoshou calmed down and glanced at the skill introduction on the red interface of his Abrogated Origin Residence.
[ Culinary Proficiency (Innate lv.
This was a combat, alchemy, and fire control type of passive skill that was super powerful.
Xu Xiaoshou couldnt level up in the past, not because he didnt want to, but because he didnt have enough passive points, so he could only level up the skills he needed then.
“Its been hard on you.
You havent leveled up in so long.
Now, its time for you to show off your might.”
Without hesitation, he casually tossed out his skill points.
Eight Tier 2 skill points, but only 40,000 passive points.
It was more than enough!
[ Culinary Proficiency (Innate lv.
[ Culinary Proficiency (Grandmaster lv.
When the last line of numbers jumped out of the information window, Xu Xiaoshous entire body was convulsing.
His brain was convulsing.
His elbows were pressed against his chest, and he was on the verge of collapsing in front of the bathtub.
He was trying his best to resist the waves of knowledge surging through his brain.
“I, I was too careless.”
“I have enough money.
But I forgot that my brain hasnt been trained to the point where it can be upgraded eight levels at the same time.”
Xu Xiaoshous figure, which was staggering in front of the cauldron with his eyes rolled back, frightened everyone.
“Whats going on”
“This guy, is he going to use some big move again”
Everyone shrunk their necks at the same time.
For a moment, no matter how wonderful the skills of a Sixth Grade alchemist were, everyone still felt that their little lives were more important.
Looking at Xu Xiaoshou who seemed like he was about to lose control, if he really collapses, and the flame seed under the bathtub explodes, and there might be three Sixth Grade corpses here.
Long Dan was the nearest, and was the first to notice Xu Xiaoshous condition.
He was so scared that he almost jumped away.
“What are you doing, Kid You are in the midst of refining pills! Control your flame well!”
He subconsciously took out the spirit tablet with the intention of opening the protective barrier.
Chen Qi, who was not far away, glanced at him and said mockingly, “Old Dragon, no way.
Youre scared of such a small situation Youre getting worse and worse.”
Long Dan was instantly angered.
“Dont just stand there and talk.
Come over and have a look at this kids flame.”
Chen Qi was amused.
“You must be joking.
Im refining pills.
Old Li, go over and take a look at the kid.”
Li Mingji glanced at Xu Xiaoshous cauldron and silently held the spirit tablet in his hand.
He suddenly regretted not opening the barrier earlier.
There was a ticking time bomb on this side of the pill refining.
He was panicking!
Shi Tis entire body froze.
Ever since Xu Xiaoshou made his move, he had never relaxed.
Now that he saw this kids state, he couldnt help but shout through voice transmission, “Brat, wake up.
Youre refining pills.
be more serious for this old man!”
Shi Ti was ready to strike.
As long as Xu Xiaoshou has the slightest tendency to blow up his furnace, he would immediately protect the Six Grade Alchemists next to him.
These lives were very precious.
“No, its not a problem…”
Xu Xiaoshou finally recovered from the massive amount of knowledge that had been instilled into him and heaved a sigh of relief.
Then, he took out a jar of red gold liquid and inhaled it.
A comfortable moan echoed in the quiet ruins, and everyone was dumbfounded.
“This Xu Xiaoshou, what is he doing up here Is he brewing soup”
“Just now, did he have a cramp on such an important occasion”
“Also, what kind of medicine was that For refreshing the mind Oh my god, the sound of that… I really want to have a go at it.”
“Un Something is wrong with you!”
“Dont, dont misunderstand.
I mean, I want to take a sniff as well.”
“Un Take a sniff”
“Doubted, Passive Points, 664.”
“Despised, Passive Points, 232.”
A Grandmaster realm Culinary Proficiency..
Xu Xiaoshou calmed down and browsed through the knowledge in his mind.
The more he browsed through it, the stiffer he became.
He shifted his gaze and returned to the field.
“Mo Yuan Separation Liquid, Herb species.
Tasteless in nature, it can neutralizeWeir Color Poison…”
“Vermilion grass, Red Vine species, ice type.
Under high temperatures, it can absorb fire, resulting in a foul stench…”
“Theres alsoLuo Variant Flower Jin,Scarlet Flower Lady…”
All of them were Grandmaster realm spiritual herbs!
One could recognize all of them!
This was very normal!
Xu Xiaoshou turned her head once more and looked over at Long Dan.
“Humans, human species.
They are around 89 years and 7 months old.
Their flesh is slightly old, and with the addition ofLi Seed, they can improve their freshness.
In addition,acorns can remove the smell, and their humerus is smelly and inedible.
Tendons and bones can be used to brew medicine…”
“Somethings wrong with me!”
Xu Xiaoshou was completely shocked.
He was shocked by himself!
He forcefully suppressed his reflexive thoughts and did not allow it to continue spreading out in a manner that was against humanity.
Xu Xiaoshou turned his gaze once again and saw Fu Yinhong in the distance.
“Human, human species.
Its about 21 years and 6 months old.
The meat is fresh, tender, and juicy.
Its full of strength, and with the addition of…”
Fu Yinhong blinked her eyes, not understanding why Xu Xiaoshou was refining pills and looking at her.
“What the F * ck!”
Xu Xiaoshou immediately swayed and his eyes almost dimmed, and he fell on the spot.
He had long thought that using “Culinary Proficiency” to refine pills might be a wrong path.
But he never expected that after this thing was upgraded, it could open up such a great path in the wrong direction!
Is this so that I, Xu Xiaoshou, can ride on the great path of theMeat Pill and never look back
Xu Xiaoshou took a deep breath and tried hard to calm down his surging heart.
After upgrading a few levels earlier, he had felt that thisCulinary Proficiency might no longer be just a vegetarian.
However, today, after he had entered the realm of theMeat and Vegetarian combination, it was truly an eye-opener for him.
Who would have thought that when he first saw meat, the first message that this knowledge would give him would behuman, human species, meat is slightly old..
Could I f*cking refine Old Long Dan
Long Dan suddenly felt a chill down his spine.
He turned his head and saw Xu Xiaoshous gaze that seemed like he was about to eat him up.
He was shocked.
“Xu Xiaoshou, if you dont refine pills, what are you doing”
Needless to say, the bathtub that had gone out of control was bubbling with the medicinal soup, as if it was boiling Chinese medicine.
“Human, human species, meat quality is too old…”
The message came out again.
Like a pop-up box on a pirated page, Xu Xiaoshou closed his eyes in pain.
“Allow me to be quiet…”
He held his head and squatted down on the spot.
It was too shocking.
This wave was too overwhelming!
Xu Xiaoshou felt his teeth ache.
Now, he was unable to look at anyone directly.
What “Loose meat”, “Strong tendons”, “Strong bones”..
All kinds of meat and vegetable combinations, whether it was spicy or tomato-flavored, countless possibilities appeared in his mind with just a glance, .
Xu Xiaoshou felt like he was about to break down.
His style of refining pills was a little out of the ordinary, but now that the steering wheel was dead, he was completely unable to go back on track.
“This is too f * cking annoying!”
He recalled the illusion that he had experienced during his “Culinary Proficiency”.
At that time, a stalk of “Nine Return God Mustard” and a “Black God Crock” formed a picture of “Heaven and earth as a furnace, all things can be refined.”.
Now that it had opened up, this illusion was really not exaggerated at all!
Not only can all things be refined, if this situation continued to develop..
All things can be eaten!
Everyone stared blankly at Xu Xiaoshou squatting on the ground, and their eyes could not help but show pity.
“As expected, Xu Xiaoshou has suffered a blow.”
“This fellow, if he isnt competent enough, then dont go on stage.
Tenth Grade sandwiched between the three great Sixth Grades to refine pills.
Now great, he has even forgotten the method of refining pills!”
“Hehe, I think, he has probably even forgotten the pill formula.
To think that I still had some expectations when I saw him throwing spiritual herbs all at once just now.”
“Ah, he cant take it anymore.
Xu Xiaoshou cant take it anymore.
Its the end.”
“Shut up!” Xu Xiaoshou suddenly rebuked angrily on the stage.
As soon as his voice fell, his pill cauldron shook.
With an explosion, the entire pot of pill liquid turned into ashes and smoke.
Shi Ti stood up, but he was pressed down by the Night Guardian who was watching from the side with shining eyes.
“Dont worry, it wont be a big problem.”
With this delay, the few cauldrons of medicinal liquid closest to Xu Xiaoshou were also affected.
Even Long Dan was no exception.
The old fellows face turned green, and he was fuming.
“Boom Boom Boom!”
It was like a chain reaction.
In the distance, Chen Qi and Li Mingji gritted their teeth, trying to stabilize their state of mind.
In the end, they were unable to salvage the situation, and the scene became extremely irritable.
“Boom Boom Boom Boom Boom…”
It was as if a buried land mine had been stepped on by a divine weapon from the heavens and exploded one by one.
On the ruins, explosions instantly sounded, rising and falling, and smoke and dust filled the sky.
All those who were careless and did not open their protective barriers were completely wiped out, and all of their medicinal pills were gone.
Everyone below the stage was stunned.
Xu Xiaoshou was also stunned.
God knows, he was merely too irratated and could not stand the noisy fellows below.
That was all.
“Im sorry, Im just a little distracted…”
Long Dan was about to explode.
If youre freaking distracted, can you go somewhere else to be distracted
With you here, not only are we distracted, were even scared!
He blew his beard and glared at him, shouting angrily, “Xu Xiaoshou, this is pill refining.
CAN YOU SHUT UP!”
Xu Xiaoshou blinked innocently.
“Okay, Ill try my best.”
“But if youre afraid of being disturbed, why suffer for the sake of saving face Shall we open the Protective Barrier first”
