Xiang Nan thought to himself, could the The Dark Underworld Sect really be so shameless? Could it be that just as the Ghost Gate woman said, they were planning to eliminate all the contestants?
As many as nine inappropriate herbs were mixed together, this was practically an incomplete screening process.
Xiang Nan did not believe that anyone could complete such a test.
The crux of the matter was that these 159 types of spirit herbs were all beneficial to the human body, making it even more difficult for people to distinguish between them.
Xiang Nan frowned and remained motionless.
Although the Ghost Sect's Fifth Prince was also very anxious, they found that Xiang Nan did not move, and their hearts relaxed slightly.
What's there to be afraid of? At worst, if we fail together, as long as no one can complete the pill refinement, it can be considered acceptable.
Xiang Nan thoughtfully glanced at the Profound Nether Sect's Elder's seat.
He thought to himself, if the Xuanming Sect deliberately wanted everyone to fail in refining pills, then there was naturally nothing to say, but what if that wasn't the case?
If they were planning to let others win, then the nine kinds of unwanted spiritual herbs they had given were clearly enough for everyone to fail.
Could it be that he was thinking in the wrong direction? Wasn't there nine kinds of unwanted spiritual herbs?
At this moment, Xiang Nan suddenly slapped his forehead and scolded, "Why am I so stupid? I actually forgot about this matter."
"Senior Half Gourd once said that when refining pills, some spirit herbs are destined to be used as sacrifices."
"The so-called'give or take 'means that the nine additional spiritual herbs are not necessary ingredients for pill refinement. Are they actually medicinal ingredients?"
Xiang Nan was overjoyed. He immediately threw all 159 kinds of spiritual herbs into the pill furnace.
At this moment, the entire arena exploded. Everyone's gaze was focused on Xiang Nan alone.
"Are you kidding me?" "What's wrong with this kid? Did he really find a way? I don't believe it. He must be messing around." The ghost girl was dumbfounded.
"Let's see his joke."
Apart from Xiang Nan, no one else started refining pills, so Xiang Nan naturally became the focus of everyone present.
The Profound Nether Sect elders all looked at Xiang Nan hopefully.
Rather than saying that this kind of abnormal examination was to make the Pill Martial Meeting more exciting, it was better to say that they were deliberately considering Xiang Nan's talent.
If they wanted to lean towards the Nature Sect and reject the Heavenly Profound Sect, they had to see how great the potential of the Nature Sect was.
The potential of a sect was naturally determined by its disciples.
Xiang Nan glanced excitedly at the Profound Nether Sect's elder seats, and then immediately ignited a raging flame in the pill furnace.
"There are nine kinds of medicinal herbs. We must find these nine kinds of spiritual herbs."
Xiang Nan stared fixedly at the pill furnace. With his terrifying divine thunder meridian talent, he could accurately sense the changes in 159 types of spiritual herbs.
He used his Lightning Photoelectric Eyes, and in the midst of this powerful gaze, Xiang Nan discovered how the large amount of spiritual herbs were mutually exclusive and attractive to each other.
Slowly, he discovered a spirit herb. In the process of refining pills, its burning and melting speed was faster than other spirit herbs.
"This is redundant." Xiang Nan nodded and immediately separated the spiritual herb.
In an instant, the medicinal power of the spiritual herb was immediately wrapped around the entire medicinal herb ball, and it had the effect of nourishing the spiritual herb ball.
Then, Xiang Nan discovered that the melting speed of the three herbs was too slow.
"These three are also superfluous." Xiang Nan gave these three types of spirit herbs more flames to burn. The medicinal power of those three types of spirit herbs transformed into a "sharp sword" and directly pierced into the spirit herb ball.
Afterwards, Xiang Nan discovered that the remaining spiritual herbs were melting at the same rate, making it difficult to use this method to screen them.
"The medicinal herbs must be complementary to each other. I have found four kinds of spiritual herbs that can be used as medicinal herbs, so the other five must be compatible with these four herbs."
"That's right. I don't need to look for those 150 kinds of spirit herbs. I just need to find another five kinds of spirit herbs that can be used to draw medicine."
Xiang Nan muttered to himself, and discovered that under the effects of the four medicinal ingredients, five spiritual herbs had an extraordinary effect.
The reason for that was because the five spirit herbs weren't involved in refining pills. Instead, they had a neutralizing effect. The effects of the other four herbs were relieved, so that their powerful medicinal effects wouldn't affect the other spirit herbs.
Xiang Nan extracted all five types of spiritual herbs and used their medicinal power to make up for the powerful "destructive power" brought about by the four types of medicinal herbs.
Immediately, the power of the four medicinal ingredients instantly diminished and became gentle.
"That's right! I found it!" Xiang Nan was overjoyed. This was only the first step, and he was going to refine 150 kinds of spirit herbs into the Spring Restoration Pill.
Xiang Nan precisely controlled the flames and minutes passed.
Cold sweat continuously fell from Xiang Nan's forehead.
Everyone was completely silent. Everyone was sweating for Xiang Nan.
Even the usually noisy princess now covered her mouth, feeling both nervous and excited.
Gradually, seven hours passed.
Xiang Nan's eyes suddenly lit up. He jumped up and slapped the furnace with his palm.
The pill furnace let out a loud boom, and the top lid opened, followed by a multicolored light that shot straight into the sky!
"Success?" Everyone's eyes widened in shock.
Whoosh whoosh whoosh!
Five translucent pills rushed out!
Xiang Nan jumped up and quickly grabbed the five pills in his hand. He looked at the five pills again and saw that their surfaces were drenched in ripples of light, and a faint layer of fluorescence lingered around them.
"Alright!" An elder from the The Dark Underworld Sect couldn't help but clench his fists and cheer for Xiang Nan.
"Five! Haha, it's five, two more than the prescribed!" The audience cheered happily.
After seven hours of dull refining, the atmosphere finally reached its peak.
"Impossible!" The ghost girl gritted her teeth and screamed, "That's impossible! You must have known the correct pill recipe long ago!"
"Impudent!" The Xuanming Sect elders shouted in unison. One of the elders shouted, "Do you suspect that our Xuanming Sect is deliberately letting water go?"
The Ghost Gate woman smiled sinisterly and said, "He was actually able to screen out all nine kinds of unwanted spiritual herbs in one go. This is simply an arcane story!"
Xiang Nan smiled. "Who told you that there are nine kinds of unwanted spiritual herbs? That's just your own preconceived ideas."
"Each of these 159 spirit herbs is not superfluous, but nine of them are used as medicinal ingredients."
"Nonsense, of course I know about the medicine!" The Ghost Gate woman shouted, "However, there is no specific way to use the medicinal ingredients in the pill recipe."
Xiang Nan smiled and said, "Because the medicinal introduction of the Rejuvenation Pill is directly used as part of pill refinement. Otherwise, how can you cultivate into a Tier 5 pill?"
"I don't believe it. You must know which ones are medicinal ingredients!" The Ghost Sect girl was unyielding.
Xiang Nan said, "Do you want me to tell you how I distinguished the medicinal ingredients?"
Immediately, Xiang Nan explained his specific selection process, so that everyone could hear it clearly and clearly.
"This child's mind is extraordinary." An Xuanming Sect elder nodded slightly.
Everyone was hiding this method of selecting medicinal ingredients in their hearts. That was the most precious experience of an alchemist. Who would be willing to reveal it to the world?
But Xiang Nan publicly announced it.
