Training Through The Game - Chapter 31

When Lu Yu returned to the small courtyard, he happened to see Little Tail who had just stood up.
“Are you alright?” Lu Yu asked.
He threw the sack containing the iron essence and sand grains into the living room and said to her, “If you’re fine, then get to work! Pick out all the iron essence.”
He looked like a black-hearted boss who was exploiting his employee. He didn’t want Little Tail to become dependent on him. Sooner or later, he would have to leave this place. When that time came, he wouldn’t be able to bring her along.
After all, Little Tail was just an ordinary kid.
“Okay.” Little Tail took out the small magnetic bracelet from the room and began to work.
Originally, Little Tail had hung the small magnetic bracelet around her neck. However, at Lu Yu’s request, she took it off.
It was hard to say whether a magnetic field was good or bad to one’s body. However, if she carried something with a strong magnetic field around her, it would easily affect her own magnetic field, resulting in dizziness and vomiting. That was why Lu Yu told her not to wear the magnetic bracelet around her neck.
When Little Tail used the magnetic bracelet to pick out the iron essence from the sack, she was a little absent-minded. From time to time, she would turn her head to look at Lu Yu, who was cultivating.
When she was eroded by demonic aura, she felt very cold. She recalled the winter she had spent with the old beggar when she was young. The old beggar died in that winter but leaving her the hope of survival.
When she had been eroded by the demonic aura, she felt that she had returned to that harsh winter. However, the old beggar was no longer by her side. The snowstorm was getting stronger and stronger, and the world was getting darker and darker.
When she thought that she was going to die. She felt a very warm embrace. It was a feeling that she had never felt before, just like the feeling of a mother. Although she had never seen her mother before, in the description of the old beggar, a mother’s embrace was the warmest place in the world.
After breaking through to the fourth level of the body refining realm, Lu Yu felt that cultivating the Fierce Tiger Fist Style would increase his qi-blood very slowly. Cultivating for an entire day could only increase his qi-blood by 1 point.
Currently, Lu Yu’s qi-blood had reached 88 points at the fourth level of the body refining realm.
For ordinary martial art cultivators, when their qi-blood reached this level, most of them had already reached the fifth level or even close to the sixth level of the body refining realm.
The Fierce Tiger Fist Style could only be cultivated to the seventh level of the body refining realm. In other words, Lu Yu’s qi-blood was already close to the limit that the Fierce Tiger Fist Style could reach.
After the vast majority of people cultivated the Fierce Tiger Fist Style to the sixth level of the body refining realm, the improvement of their qi-blood would become very slow. Just like Wang Qiang, he had cultivated for many years and still hadn’t broken through to the sixth level of the body refining realm.
The cultivation technique restricted the improvement of their qi-blood. The best way was to find a cultivation technique that was even more advanced than the Fierce Tiger Fist Style.
However, it would take a long time to cultivate another cultivation technique from the beginning to reach the current realm.
If one’s comprehension was not enough, it might be a waste of effort.
Generally, the martial art cultivators would keep grinding to slowly increase the qi-blood, or they would cultivate an advanced cultivation technique to increase their qi-blood faster.
Lu Yu had change from a fist technique to a saber technique, but this method was not recommended to most people.
Han Yaozong was only willing to give Lu Yu to a saber technique because Lu Yu had just started cultivation. Moreover, Lu Yu was talented and had a high comprehension ability.
Not long after Lu Yu practiced the Fierce Tiger Fist Style, he took out the Hundred Forged Greatsword and cultivated the Edgeless Blade Art. The effect of the Fierce Tiger Fist Style was far inferior to the Edgeless Blade Art.
The Edgeless Blade Art was a third-grade spirit class cultivation technique, and its effect was far superior to the Fierce Tiger Fist Style. After consuming the qi-blood pill to speed up the cultivation, Lu Yu would be able to increase his qi-blood by 3 to 4 points every day. He believed that it wouldn’t be long before he would be able to level up again.
Raising his qi-blood to 88 points made it much easier for him to cultivate the Edgeless Blade Technique. The time he could cultivate every day was also extended, but there was still quite a distance before he could fully display the “Heaven’s Fall”.
He was able to instantly kill a martial art cultivator at the sixth level of the body refining realm without fully displaying the power of the Heaven’s Fall. Hence, Lu Yu was looking forward to the true strength of the Heaven’s Fall.
Little Tail picked out all the iron essence and dragged a sack towards Lu Yu with great difficulty.
Noticing Little Tail’s movements, Lu Yu stopped the AFK mode.
He walked over and picked up the sack containing the iron essence and weighed it. It weighed at least 15-16 jin, or even more.
Lu Yu had just broken through, so he had not completely grasped his own strength yet. It felt lighter than before when he took the same weight item. Therefore, Lu Yu did not know how heavy this sack of iron essence was.
However, the last iron essence harvest would definitely be a huge profit. It was possible that he could even earn back the money he had spent on the heaven recovery pill and the aura dispelling pill.
However, Lu Yu did not plan to exchange all of it for money. He still wanted to keep some to strengthen the Hundred Forged Greatsword.
If there were no accidents, the Hundred Forged Greatsword would be enough for him to use for a long time. For this reason, he fully consulted Boss Tang and knew the difference between a hundred refined weapon and a spirit weapon. Only then did he decide to strengthen the Hundred Forged Greatsword.
The difference between a low-grade spirit weapon and an ordinary weapon was that a low-grade spirit weapon was able to transmit spiritual energy more perfectly and produce some sort of effect.
After the spiritual energy was injected into a spirit weapon, it would become sharper, harder, or it could buffer attacks and even cause fire damage. The effect was determined by the materials used to forge the equipment.
In short, a spirit weapon was a weapon with an additional attack effect.
In terms of material, a low-grade spirit weapon without spiritual energy was not necessarily harder and sharper than a hundred refined weapon.
Lu Yu had cultivated the Edgeless Blade Art, so he knew that what he needed was not some fancy special effect, but a weapon that was heavy enough, hard enough, and sturdy enough.
In this regard, the Hundred Forged Greatsword that had been strengthened by the iron essence was far stronger than a low-grade spirit weapon.
He had not reached the qi cultivating realm yet, so he had not cultivated spiritual energy. A spirit weapon was no different from an ordinary weapon in his hands.
Borrowing the scale from the medicinal store, he roughly weighed the sack. The weight of the iron essence reached 21.3 jin. Excluding the weight of the sack, it should be 19 to 20 jin.
If converted into money, it would be close to 16,000 gold coins.
The second half of the Edgeless Blade Art cost 70,000 gold coins. It seemed that it wasn’t impossible to get the rest of the Edgeless Blade Art.
It would be even easier if he was a tycoon. He could directly buy 700,000 game credits and get the second half of the Edgeless Blade Art.
There was not much time for him. The Wild Wolf Sect had started to attack the Han family members. Moreover, there were people from unknown forces watching him in the dark. He needed to become stronger sooner.
He brought the iron essence and the Hundred Forged Greatsword to the Tang Blacksmith Shop. When Boss Tang heard that Lu Yu had come to look for him, he knew that there was a big deal today.
“You plan to strengthen the Hundred Forged Greatsword?” When Boss Tang heard Lu Yu’s request, he was slightly surprised. He didn’t expect that he could really get so much iron essence.
“According to my many years of forging experience and my father’s previous experimental conclusion, the best ratio between ordinary materials and iron essence is 50:1. Adding 1 tael of iron essence to a 5 jin of weapon will be able to achieve the most perfect effect.”
“If we use too much iron essence, the weapon forged will be too hard and brittle. It is not suitable to be used as a weapon. If we use lesser iron essence, it would be fine, but it won’t achieve the best effect.”
“How much iron essence do you plan to use to strengthen the Hundred Forged Greatsword?” asked Boss Tang.
“50:1.” said Lu Yu without any hesitation.
“Hiss…” Boss Tang sucked in a breath of cold air. He was shocked by Lu Yu’s heroism. Last time, he had told Lu Yu that if he wanted to strengthen the Hundred Forged Greatsword, he would need at least 3 jin of iron essence to have a significant effect.
If he used too little iron essence, it would not have much effect. It would be a waste of money.
It would be very impressive if Lu Yu was able to get 3 jin of iron essence. However, he didn’t expect Lu Yu had 12 jin of iron essence to strengthen the Hundred Forged Greatsword. He was shocked on the spot.
“The Hundred Forged Greatsword weighs 600 jin. You have to give me 13 jin of iron essence so that I can help you with this job.” said Boss Tang.
“Okay, I’ll give you 13 jin of iron essence. After the strengthening is completed, the remaining iron essence will be treated as your wages. How much you will get is depend on your own skills.”
Boss Tang took the Hundred Forged Greatsword and the iron essence from Lu Yu’s hands. He stroked the blade of the sword with an excited expression and said, “No problem! Even if I don’t get any money, I’ll do this job!”
“We have many iron essences! I’ll definitely be able to forge a godly weapon.” Boss Tang was so excited that his body was trembling.
Lu Yu could see that Boss Tang was actually like his father who forged weapons until his death. He was full of love for weapons.
This could be seen from the fact that there was not a speck of dust on the weapons in the warehouse. Boss Tan took good care of the weapons, and he was obviously full of love for them.
Carrying the Hundred Forged Greatsword, Boss Tang shouted to the apprentices and workers in the blacksmith shop, “Close the shop today. Stop forging the farm tools.”
“Tie Sheng, light up the great furnace. The rest of you prepare the tools and materials. This time, we will forge a truly godly weapon!”
The people in the blacksmith shop started to get busy. Ever since Boss Tang’s father passed away, the great furnace that had been extinguished for more than ten years was once again lit up. Now, there were batches of coal pouring into the great furnace.
Looking at the great furnace that was gradually turning red and spitting out hot sparks, Boss Tang was immersed in his memories. The last time he used the great furnace was when he forged the Hundred Forged Greatsword.
This time, he ignited the great furnace because of the Hundred Forged Greatsword. The past had become memory. This time, it would be a reborn! A reborn for the Hundred Forged Greatsword, a reborn for the Tang’s Blacksmith Shop, and a reborn for himself!
The Hundred Forged Greatsword that had fused with his father’s decades of hard work would definitely become a godly weapon.
Forging a godly weapon was his father’s dream when he was still alive. It was also a dream that had never been extinguished in his heart for many years!
“The reforging probably takes a lot of time. You should go and do something else first. I’ll inform you as soon as possible.” Boss Tang said to Lu Yu.

Lu Yu nodded. The Tang Blacksmith Store had made such a big commotion, he could not help but feel excited about the strengthened Hundred Forged Greatsword.
After leaving the Tang Blacksmith Store, Lu Yu did not return to the small courtyard. He wanted to find the person who was spying on him.
No matter who the person was, Lu Yu could not tolerate that person hiding in the dark and scheming against him.
It was Lu Yu’s belief to strike first and gain the upper hand.
After wandering around Windmill Town for a few rounds, Lu Yu vaguely felt that there was someone following behind him. Hence, he walked towards the Dark Water Gutter..
