Xiang Nan did not know what kind of pill they were cultivating, but because the aura and soul fluctuations of the seven people were too intense, they completely obscured the spiritual energy fluctuations of the spiritual herbs in the pill furnace.
However, looking at the pill refining process of these seven people, Xiang Nan discovered a very serious problem.
The unrestrained enthusiasm and obvious personality caused a very serious situation to arise among the martial artists and cultivators here, and that was to strive for perfection.
On the Dao, it was also a process of complementing each other and learning from each other's strengths to make up for their own shortcomings. Through discussion after discussion, they would constantly improve their martial arts knowledge.
However, this was precisely a mistake made by Xiang Nan in his early days.
Alchemy and martial arts were two completely different things.
In the early years, Xiang Nan had also strived for perfection in his pill refinement. He pursued an extreme state of control over fire, techniques, and medicinal properties of spiritual herbs, not willing to waste the slightest bit of it.
However, Hu Bushuang gave Xiang Nan an incomparably precious experience.
When refining pills, you must give them up. Some spirit herbs are sacrificed. When it's time to let them go, you must give up decisively. Just like when you play chess, you seek the final victory, not a temporary gain or loss.
Sometimes, he would destroy 800 generals himself, seemingly stupid, but in reality, it was for the sake of the overall situation. This was more like a strategy than a martial art that was focused on winning.
The six cultivators were indeed powerful. They had used extremely powerful methods to forcefully compensate for their excessive pursuit of perfection. The consequences were similar to a ten-minute drop in strength.
However, this technique could be used to refine most of the pills, and it could be made up with cultivation realms. However, some pills that were too tricky couldn't do so.
Evidently, the Veluriyam Sect Master and the others were refining those extremely crafty pills that were presumably of extremely high quality.
As Xiang Nan thought, as expected, things were getting worse and worse.
The pill furnace suddenly turned incomparably red. It was a bit unusually red. Not only did the large amount of spiritual herbs not restrain themselves, they even began to wildly vent their spiritual energy outside the pill furnace.
"Explode the furnace!" Xiang Nan's heart skipped a beat.
That Yue Xiaolou was so frightened that his soul scattered, he turned around and fled.
"Suppress!" Sect Master Liu-Li's expression changed slightly. He jumped up and slapped the top of the pill furnace with his palm, forcefully suppressing the top of the pill furnace that was already beginning to jump and explode at any moment.
The other six cultivators stopped swimming and immediately stood at the hexagonal position, forming an array of hexagonal stars. At the same time, they placed their palms against the pill furnace.
Strands of terrifying energy poured into the pill furnace, forcefully suppressing the restless spiritual energy inside.
Immediately after, the fiery red pill furnace gradually cooled down.
The Veluriyam Sect Master sighed and slapped the outer wall of the pill furnace. A cloud of dust flew out of the pill furnace.
Spirit herbs were crippled just like that.
The other six cultivators also shook their heads, looking dejected.
The Veluriyam Sect Master turned to look at Xiang Nan outside the door and praised him, "Not bad."
Afterwards, he looked at the six mystic dao experts and said, "Six of you, refine it with me again!"
After saying that, the Veluriyam Sect Master took out thirteen long brocade boxes from his storage ring. Each of the brocade boxes was opened, and there was a spiritual herb lying inside.
The spiritual energy of those spiritual herbs actually soared into the sky! He directly crossed the dome of the hall and shot into the sky! The sky was colorful.
Xiang Nan was stunned. Could those spirit herbs be … grade eight?
Xiang Nan had never seen such a powerful spiritual herb!
In other words, the batch of spirit herbs they had refined earlier was a treasure of thirteen eighth grade plants?
What a waste of heavenly treasures! Xiang Nan's heart ached.
Yue Xiaolou had already flown back resentfully, appearing somewhat embarrassed. He had fled for his life without hesitation just now, and only dared to fly back after discovering that the situation was stable.
On the other hand, Xiang Nan had been standing outside the door without moving a single step.
He also heard his master praising Xiang Nan for his good calmness, causing his face to burn even more.
Then, the seven great experts began to refine pills.
However, Xiang Nan discovered that they were still making the same mistakes as before, striving for perfection.
Last time, Xiang Nan did not know what kind of spirit herbs were refined inside, but this time, he saw them in advance and also observed the different medicinal properties of those spirit herbs.
"Six old friends," said the Veluriyam Sect Master, "I have painstakingly gathered ten years' worth of Grade Eight Spirit Herbs. Only the last two are left. If I fail twice, it will be very bitter."
The six Profound Dao cultivators were also under great pressure, and they all said that they would do their best.
Xiang Nan shook his head. A flash of lightning flashed through his eyes. According to the pill refining methods of these seven people, there was a high probability that they would blow up the furnace again before the pill was formed.
Sure enough, three hours later, it was already late, and the pill furnace started to move restlessly.
Xiang Nan really couldn't help it. Although the Veluriyam Sect's Sect Leader would never allow outsiders to interfere in the refinement of pills, it was truly a sin to watch them destroy thirteen Eighth Grade Spirit Herbs.
Xiang Nan gritted his teeth and said, "You might as well destroy that pale green spiritual herb ahead of time. In fact, only the first twenty percent of the medicinal properties of this spiritual herb is needed, and the last eighty percent is redundant."
"As for the medicinal properties of the red spiritual herb, it is slightly insufficient. It can be quickly burned out at this moment, and its medicinal properties will explode in an instant."
When those experts first heard Xiang Nan's words, their faces were filled with displeasure. It was just that it was dangerous to refine pills, so they didn't have the time to reprimand Xiang Nan.
However, hearing Xiang Nan's words, the expressions of those people began to change.
"You're right." A Xuandao cultivator said, "It's already destroyed. Why don't we try it out according to what he said?"
The Veluriyam Sect Master and his group of seven immediately followed Xiang Nan's instructions for the final stage of consecutive refining. In the end, the furnace was about to explode again!
In the end, the seven of them worked together to suppress the danger of exploding the furnace.
After the seven of them were silent for a while, the Veluriyam Sect Master suddenly became furious. He turned his head and shouted at Xiang Nan, "Bold thief! How dare you disturb my sect's pill refining!"
The six Profound Dao cultivators also glared at Xiang Nan angrily.
If it weren't for the fact that they still didn't know Xiang Nan's origin, the seven of them would probably have already rushed up and hacked Xiang Nan alive.
Yue Xiaolou was so frightened that he didn't dare to say a word, and his intestines were filled with regret.
He thought to himself, "I'm really stupid. Why did bringing this talkative Xiang Nan over implicate me instead?"
Facing the angry reprimand of the seven great experts, Xiang Nan did not take it seriously. He said, "The destruction of the spiritual herbs is something that you guys laid the foundation for. I am powerless to return to the heavens."
An old man with a red beard shouted, "Where did this yellow-mouthed child come from? He actually dares to teach us a lesson!"
Xiang Nan cupped his fists and said, "I am a direct disciple of Mo Ling. Xiang Nan greets the sect master and seniors."
"Oh?" "Are you really Mo Ling's direct disciple?" The Veluriyam Sect Master stared at Xiang Nan as if he had discovered a treasure.
"What nonsense!" The red-bearded old man sneered and said, "Everyone knows that Old Man Mo Ling never accepts disciples. Where did he get his personal disciple?"
"I think this person is used to swindling people. He actually came to the Veluriyam Sect and waited for me to kill him with one palm!"
As he spoke, the red-bearded old man was about to make a move, but was quickly stopped by the Veluriyam Sect Master.
You want to kill me? Xiang Nan's expression also turned cold. I just reminded him kindly that he was going to be slapped to death by you with one palm?
