Hey guys, it’s the last chapter. I want to thank all of the people who read up to this point and especially thank my editors who helped a lot.
I want to emphasize the point that I haven’t stopped translating due to a couple of comments, but because I was coming to a point in time where continuing to translate would be a burden for the near future.
New news. Moetansama has contacted me and said that he/she would like to pick up the series. Yay!
Anyway, this is it for now. Once again, thanks for sticking with it up till now and enjoy!
The Big Treasure Hunt Assembly in truth was a test of a person’s eyesight and luck because there were countless experts hidden in the Heng Duan Mountain Range there were also many ruins which had some top-quality items, although some were simple ordinary goods. Therefore for the people that came here, most of them were depending on their luck.
The Big Treasure Hunt Assembly started in a large hall.
(TN: I took some liberties here with the translation here… 淘宝大会是一个大厅)
The area inside the hall had at least a few thousand coming and going, there was haggling going on and was very noisy. Scattered everywhere were a variety of items, large and small.
There were fighting techniques, weapons, heaven and earth spirit essence, pills, alchemist techniques, etc.
Standing at the entrance, seeing the crowded hall full of bustling people, the anger in Xie Ao Yu’s heart vanished. He didn’t want to always be affected by these external emtions.
Stepping into the large hall, just in front of them was a counter that was selling weapons.
There was a variety of weapons on display, with all sorts of swords in every form; there was even a row of eye-catching gloves.
Xie Ao Yu picked up a slightly yellow glove.
The appearance and weight of the glove was deceiving, it was at least 30 jin. What made Xie Ao Yu feel even more surprised was that these gloves had the earth attribute.
(TN: 30 jin approximately 33 pounds)
Gloves weren’t the best choice to use against a person using a weapon.
Since Xie Ao Yu used Overlord Dragon Boxing, he naturally would use gloves, but the biggest reason why he chose the gloves were for the sake of the Medical Spirit Finger.
The Medical Spirit Finger on his left pinky had already changed colors. Although Ziyan had promised to return it to its normal pink color, but method had limits, and if he encountered a difficult battle then the pink color could easily come off. He didn’t want to accidentally leak out the huge secret of the Medical Spirit Finger.
“What was this glove made out of?” Xie Ao Yu asked.
“Naturally it’s made from refined iron as its base and then mixed together with some other materials. For practitioners that like to fight in close combat, it’s pretty good. Honorable sir, you have the earth attribute right? This pair of gloves really suits you.” That vendor immediately warmed up and recommended it.
Fitting the glove on, it fit very well.
Xie Ao Yu said: “May I check how the quality is?”
“Here I have some weapons, give it a try.” The vendor pulled out an at least sixty or seventy jin heavy saber that gave off an ice cold light throughout the blade to Xie Ao Yu.
(TN: 66-77 pounds.)
Xie Ao Yu raised the heavy saber and chopped down on the earth attribute gloves.
As the heavy sword made contact, it suddenly felt soft.
Looking at the glove, it was entirely intact without a trace of damage. Xie Ao Yu then put on the gloves again and slid his hand across the heavy saber’s blade. It felt alright.
“How much is it?” Xie Ao Yu asked.
Xie Ao Yu didn’t haggle, pulling out ten gold and gave it to the vendor. With gloves in hand, he turned around to see that Qin Yueyi was currently talking with a young handsome man.
“Old Xie, hurry up and come over.” Qin Yueyi said with a delighted expression.
Seeing that happy expression, Xie Ao Yu’s brain suddenly came up a single sentence: Sucks to be that guy!
The time he had spent with Qin Yueyi was less than a month, but he deeply understood that this little devil’s ability to cause trouble when there were no problems. When she was about to cause trouble for others, she would have this expression.
“Come, let me introduce you.” Qin Yueyi pointed at the handsome man, “This is Tian Luo’s Desai clan’s patriarch’s son Yasuke. He came here to participate in the auction.”
(TN: Desai 德赛 , Yasuke 亚什科 )
Yasuke stretched out his hand and said with a smile: “Yasuke.”
“Xie Ao Yu.” Xie Ao Yu smiled and said.
The two were now acquainted.
Yasuke gave off a different first impression than Xie Ao Yu’s first meeting with Chalice. Chalice at that time had that expression of disgust that would leak out. Yasuke was always trying to keep a smile on his face.
As if he was friendly with everyone.
Except there was a bit of an arrogance in his eyebrows.
(TN: When that eyebrow game too strong.)
“The gloves that sir just bought was ten gold right? It doesn’t seem like it.” Yasuke’s eyes settled on Xie Ao Yu’s recently purchased gloves.
“That’s true, ah.” Qin Yueyi reached out and grabbed the gloves, “Old Xie, did you buy these gloves for me?”
Xie Ao Yu hesitated, but after Qin Yueyi blinked at him a few times, he immediately followed up and said: “Aren’t there better gloves here? Then I’ll buy that to give to you.”
“I’ve already come here once. There aren’t any better gloves here. They’re all that kind of garbage.” Yasuke lightly said, “But there are a lot of materials here to use to create better gloves. I can scrape some together for Miss Yueyi.”
“Okay. Then I’ll have to thank you.” Qin Yueyi smiled.
“To be able to assist Miss Yueyi would be Yasuke’s honor.” Yasuke smiled, which had a great attractiveness for women. In addition to that was his noble air. He was definitely a lady-killer.
Finished speaking, Yasuke went straight to a counter.
Behind him Xie Ao Yu and Qin Yueyi’s eyes met, at the same time leaking out delighted expresisons.
Without any need for words, they knew what they should do.
Xie Ao Yu also knew, this Yasuke and Chalice’s objectives were the same, both were Qin Yueyi’s suitors. Of course it was also for the sake of the clan’s bonding.
“I want this largest piece of gold iron wood. No need for change.” Yasuke in front of the vendor picked up a half meter long piece of wood. He gave the vendor a few dozen pieces of gold, then he turned and said, “Does the sir know what can be this gold iron wood be used for in making gloves?”
“I don’t.” Xie Ao Yu shrugged.
Yasuke smiled and explained: “Gold iron wood in incomparably tough. Since it has wood attribute, and with the gold entwined in it, it increases the gloves durability. For the sir to not know isn’t anything embarrassing. This is just a bit of useful trivial knowledge.”
He then walked to another vendor.
He grabbed three Flower Rain Stones and placed down some gold. Yasuke once again explained, “These Flower Rain Stones are usually used by people to construct armor. What they don’t know is that inside the Flower Rain Stones are a type of metal, though the quantity is very small. Through a special refining technique, once it has been refined, it can be used to upgrade your gloves by multiple levels.
After that, Yasuke was also eloquent.
Xie Ao Yu couldn’t help but secretly admire this guy’s broad knowledge. Even though he had read many books, there was still a lot he didn’t know.
Although he considered himself well-read, his entire knowledge of books came from the Xie family’s book collection as well as some ancient texts from Langya City. Comparing how well read he was against Yasuke who was from a large clan, the two weren’t even on the same level.
Facing Yasuke’s constant stream of words, Xie Ao Yu was not only not angry; instead, he looked at him in a funny manner because Qin Yueyi had an expression of constant admiration.
The more expression they had, the more excited Yasuke became. He began speaking with even more vigor.
Without pausing, Yasuke collected a couple dozen things, other than the things everyone knew about, the rest were all top class items.
“These are the items you should make gloves out of. If there’s a high-level enchanter that use these things to make the gloves, I imagine that while it won’t be holy equipment, it will still be superb equipment.” Yasuke delightedly said.
Qin Yueyi reached out her hands to receive it, “Thank you so much.”
“To be able to help Miss Yueyi is my honor.” Yasuke happily said, very satisfied with his performance. He had an unspoken opinion, which is when dealing with women, he was an expert. The pitiable Chalice could only admit that he was out of luck compared to Yasuke.
“Really?” Qin Yueyi sweet beautiful face was full of surprise.
“Of course. For Miss Yueyi, whether heading into a mountain of knives or a sea of fire, Yasuke would die a hundred times without hesitation.” Yasuke patted his chest, speaking in a respectable manner.
Qin Yueyi said: “I want that bracelet.”
“Alright, I’ll buy it.” Yasuke immediately went over to that stall.
Qin Yueyi immediately gave those materials that could create the best gloves to Xie Ao Yu, “Do you want anything? Quickly say it. There’s someone giving it to us for free, don’t not take advantage of this.”
Placing those materials into his space ring, Xie Ao Yu swept over the surroundings, “I haven’t spotted anything at this moment.”
At that time, Yasuke had already bought that bracelet.
“It’s really pretty” Qin Yueyi grabbed the bracelet. She then pointed to a stall on the left, “I want that pendant. Oh, it’s so expensive, ah. It’s five hundred gold.”
“It’s only five hundred gold. I’ll buy it.” Yasuke quickly said.
“Ah, this necklace isn’t bad. It would look good on my white skin.”
“Wao! This ring is so pretty, ah.”
“Ha, this is something good. This is a top-class armband, ah.”
“Hey, a top-class hairpin. It’s not only pretty, it can even be used for hidden weapons.”
“Oh, it’s too beautiful. This coral sword is too beautiful. It’s too charming. It suits this beauty the best.”
(TN: I ain’t saying she’s a gold digger, but she ain’t dating no broke… I’ll stop there.)
