C12 Can't I Eat It like Candy?
[Body Tempering Pill (Low Grade, Tier 2): 5 gold coins...]
[Body Tempering Pill (Middle Grade, Tier 2): 7 gold coins...]
[Body Tempering Pill (High Grade, Tier 2): 12 gold coins...]
Medicinal pills are usually divided among nine different tiers. According to the effects of the pills, they are further separated into six different grades: waste, low, middle, high, supreme, and perfect grade.
Among them, the high-grade pills were already extremely difficult to produce, let alone come by. While those high-grade pills would occasionally appear here and there, perfect-grade pills would only appear once every few years.
"It seems that the best quality pills they sell here are high-grade pills for 12 gold coins each, equivalent to that of half a suite.
Upon seeing the prices of the pills, Su Lang clicked his tongue and reminded himself, "I will have to money on such items. It will all come back when it's all gone anyways."
"Give me five high-grade Body Tempering Pills!"
Su Lang said as he handed the booklet back to the staff member.
However, hen his words fell into the ears of the surrounding people, it immediately stirred up a wave of discussion.
"What? I didn't hear wrongly, right? That guy actually wants to buy five high-grade Body Tempering Pills?"
"That young man actually asked for five high-grade Body Tempering Pills the moment he opened his mouth.... Surely, he has to be joking...."
"Those five pills are worth a total of 60 gold coins. Does that fellow really have that amount of money on hand?"
"Does he not know what gold coins are?"
Everyone stared at Su Lang as if they were looking at a clown.
"Are you sure you want to buy five high-grade Body Tempering Pills?"
The staff member asked in utter disbelief.
If a well-known, powerful martial cultivator asked to buy such luxuries, he would not be surprised whatsoever.
However, the young man in front of him did not have any Spiritual Qi fluctuating around his body. Thus, he was definitely not a Standard Martial Cultivator. Furthermore, he wore cheap clothes and did not have a single piece of armor on his body.
With a single glance, he could tell that the young man was currently in the Intermediate Body Tempering Realm at best. How could he simply take out 60 gold coins?
"Are 60 gold coins really that much? You guys are just a bunch of poor people."
Su Lang looked at the surrounding people with disdain before taking out 60 gold coins from the system and handing them over to the staff member.
"Woah! He really took out 60 gold coins!"
"What a rich guy! To think that he could take out so much money when he's just in the Body Tempering Realm."
"I must have been blind! That young man is definitely someone from a rich family!"
"Tsk, tsk. He actually took out and used 60 gold coins in the blink of an eye!"
The surrounding people whom Su Lang had looked down on were so shocked that their jaws dropped to the ground.
"This... these are the pills that you wanted. I apologize for my previous attitude."
The staff member handed the pills to Su Lang and smiled apologetically.
"Good. Your attitude is much better than that old hag's."
Su Lang revealed a smile of satisfaction before stuffing all five pills into his mouth. He then turned around and took his leave.
His unexpected action once again caused another wave of discussions amongst the crowd.
"What in the world did he just do?! Did he just stuff all five pills into his mouth? Shouldn't he have taken a medicinal bath, burned some incense, and adjust the condition of his body before taking those pills?"
"That should definitely have been the case! On the contrary, he simply stuffed them into his mouth and casually walked away! Is he not even going to use any circulation techniques to refine them?!"
"Since he didn't refine the pills, wouldn't its effects be greatly diminished?"
"Oh my god! Is that guys some sort of monster?"
"Why do I feel like he's an absolute lunatic?"
Almost everyone was staring now staring at Su Lang's departing figure.
At this moment, Su Lang turned around and stated with a smile, "Can't I just eat it like candy?"
A thin Initial Body Tempering martial cultivator who standing in the corner trembled and spurted out a mouthful of blood.
The other onlookers were dumbstruck by his words and stood petrified for a long time.
Under normal circumstances, Su Lang would not have been able to eat those pills like candy.
That, however, is only under normal circumstances. Compared to the other martial cultivators, Su Lang possessed the One-Click Cultivation System. No matter how he stood, how he walked, how he slept, how he ate, or even how he looked at a beautiful woman, the system's function allowed him to circulate the Spiritual Qi from those pills automatically.
Those medicinal pills would also naturally be refined in that automatic process.
"This cultivation speed is indeed fierce!"
As he continued walked, the Spiritual Qi around Su Lang surged through his body.
The small white figure in the mysterious space was suddenly surrounded by the golden light at a speed visible to the naked eye.
"System, how long will it take for me to become a Quasi Martial Cultivator now?" Su Lang asked.
[The Host will only need ten hours to break through to the realm of the Quasi Martial Cultivator.]
"Hoh? The duration has been halved? The effects of those pills happen to last exactly ten hours."
Su Lang nodded in satisfaction and thought to himself, "It seems that those 60 gold coins were not wasted."
The effects of the Body Tempering Pills weren't half bag. However, Su Lang did not consider consuming enough pills to maintain his current state.
After all, that would be far too costly. One day would cost him 144 gold coins!
Furthermore, seven days of spending would be enough to raise the function of the system by another level. Since the effects of upgrading the system would permanently double his cultivation speed, it was clear which one was worth prioritizing over the other.
"Alright, I'll just have to wait patiently for my next breakthrough. In the meantime, let's take a look at the map."
Upon taking out the map and unfolding it, Su Lang immediately noticed a large number of intersecting paths and various kinds of markings imprinted around the map.
