Chapter 404: Repaired! Rainbow Dusk
Compared to the item shop, the pharmacist, and the equipment shop, the blacksmith’s business was a bit lacking, but it was still better than the appraisal shop. This was because players could learn forging and some even specifically became blacksmiths. If a player were to forge an item, it would save half the cost of production and it would increase a player’s forging skill experience, so there was no need to go to the blacksmith at all. But currently, the amount of items, materials and equipment players could forge could be considered pitifully small.
In the blacksmith shop, there was a dark skinned man with a gentle look. When Ye Tian Xie came in, there weren’t many players there. The blacksmith was holding a hammer that was around the size of his body, rhythmically slamming it down on the foundry filled with purple flames.
“Hello, smithing master.” Ye Tian Xie came forward and said in a very polite voice.
“Ding…..As a result of your extraordinary charm, blacksmith ‘Iron Ghostless’’ favorability towards you has increased by 32.”
Iron Ghostless? Was he related to Iron Toothless who forged the “Heaven Blocking” Imperial Reincarnation?
“Oh…..Hello, young man. What can I help you with?” The blacksmith stopped moving and turned around, speaking with a kind smile.
Ye Tian Xie did not waste time and directly said, “Master blacksmith, have you ever heard of the Seven Star Lotus?”
The blacksmith’s eyes lit up as he said with a nod, “A divine item that can repair anything, which blacksmith in the world wouldn’t know of it? Only this divine item only exists in legends. I have been a blacksmith my entire life and have only heard of its legend, never seeing it before.”
“Then if I have a Seven Star Lotus and also a broken Mysterious God Equipment, could you repair that broken Mysterious God Equipment?” Ye Tian Xie said.
“He, he, if there is a Seven Star Lotus, even if the Mysterious God Equipment lost all its strength, as long as its core and form was still there, I can repair it perfectly…..Oh? Young man, could it be that you…..” The blacksmith looked at Ye Tian Xie with shock, but it was clear from his expression and voice that he was only doubtful. He did not really believe that Ye Tian Xie had the Seven Star Lotus or a piece of Mysterious God Equipment.
Ye Tian Xie did not say anything else, immediately taking out the “Rainbow Dusk” which had lost its spiritual strength and had the sun and moon split, placing it in front of Iron Ghostless. The seven colour glow instantly filled the dim smithy with an illusory rainbow glow. The blacksmith’s old eyes revealed a strange light as his blacksmith’s sense of smell immediately made him look at Ye Tian Xie’s hand.
“Such a strange glow! This is the glow of pure elemental power that only the Evil Spirit Clan can release…..What am I looking at! The colour of seven different elements…..It’s actually collected on a single chain…..Wait a minute! Could this be, could this be the recorded……”
The blacksmith’s voice became excited as he put down the hammer in his hand and walked before Ye Tian Xie, taking the broken “Rainbow Dusk” from his hand. After looking at it for a few seconds, he excitedly shouted, “This isn’t wrong, this isn’t wrong! This appearance, this colour, this glow, this feeling……This should be the recorded Heavenly Sun City guarding weapon bestowed by the Xi Yao Goddess, the Rainbow Dusk!”
“That’s right, this is the Rainbow Dusk. Only, it has been damaged.” Ye Tian Xie said.
“Indeed, it is already broken, otherwise how could its power be so weak…..Oh, young man, this is the Heavenly Sun City’s protective weapon, why do you have it? Please forgive my curiosity and you can not reply, but this Mysterious God Item has only existed in records and this is my first time seeing it.” The blacksmith raised the Rainbow Dusk in his hand, looking it over while he spoke.
“This was something the Heavenly Sun City Lord temporarily gave me, so I could find a way to repair it.” Ye Tian Xie thought about it before he spoke. If he said it like this, it didn’t seem wrong. Indeed the Heavenly Sun City Lord had given it to him.
“So it’s like this…..” Because of his considerably high favorability of Ye Tian Xie, the blacksmith did not doubt his words. He then said, “Only, the moon and sun have already split, so there is no longer a dusk. Its strength has already withered from being broken for such a long time…..It’s very regrettable, but I don’t have a method of repairing it.” The blacksmith regretfully said while shaking his head.
“Then, what if you had the Seven Star Lotus? Can you still not repair it?” Ye Tian Xie said.
“Of course I can!” The blacksmith nodded without any hesitation, “As long as I can have the Seven Star Lotus, in a single hour…..No! In half an hour, I’ll be able to completely repair it! Only, the Seven Star Lotus is a strange item that doesn’t belong to this world. It’s said that the legendary incomparably mysterious Wishing Tree came to this world, but it is not something normal people can find. However, the Seven Star Lotus has appeared before and has been used to repair a piece of Mysterious God Equipment. The one that used it before was my ancestor. In my family’s records, there is a detailed account, so I’m very clear on its abilities, only…..Ai!”
“This also means that as long as you have the Seven Star Lotus, you can repair it?” Ye Tian Xie was more assured as he spoke in a satisfied voice.
“Of course…..” From Ye Tian Xie’s voice, the blacksmith finally realized something. He said in a shocked voice, “Young man, if you say this, could it be that you…..”
Ye Tian Xie took out the Seven Star Gourd and took a step back. With a thought, the Seven Star Gourd released the Seven Star Lotus.
A gorgeous crystal like glow was released from the charming flower as it appeared in front of them. It was like an ice lotus formed from light suddenly opened in front of them…..That light, it was magnificent and dazzling.
This was also Ye Tian Xie’s first time seeing the Seven Star Lotus. He was completely stunned by its magnificent appearance. It was like a glowing lotus made of ice, pure and beautiful, releasing an illusory crystal like glow. Its appearance was no different from an ordinary lotus, but each one of its petals was glowing with a different colour. This should be the origin of the name Seven Star Lotus.
The blacksmith stared right at it as he excited squatted down. Using his hand, he carefully held the lotus. His movements were very light, like he was holding a handful of snow.
“It’s not wrong! It’s not wrong! This feeling, this glow, this strength…..This is the magnificent Seven Stars Lotus written in my Iron Family’s records!!” The blacksmith’s hand trembled as he spoke with an incomparably excited voice.
“With this, you should be able to repair the ‘Rainbow Dusk’, right?” Ye Tian Xie said.
“I can…..Of course I can!! Not only can I repair it, perhaps, perhaps it can even be stronger than before! The Seven Star Lotus can only exist for a short period of time, it began to wither as soon as my ancestor obtained it. As for this lotus, it had just bloomed and its power is the most active at this moment, it is at its peak…..Young man, I really want to know how you obtained this Seven Star Lotus, but this is an item of legends, so it’s better if I don’t ask.”
He carefully put the Seven Star Lotus down before looking at Ye Tian Xie with a sincere gaze as he said, “Young man, although I’m not willing to give up this Seven Star Lotus, I will immediately help you repair the Rainbow Dusk…..Only, whether it is the power released by the Seven Star Lotus or the released energy during the Mysterious God Equipment repair process, the energy released is very dangerous. During this time, you should leave. Although this small room is worn out, it has a very strong protective barrier and the strength outside will not flow out.”
Ye Tian Xie did not hesitate at all as he nodded in agreement and walked out of the smithy. NPCs could not take the items and materials given to them by player, so Ye Tian Xie was not worried that the blacksmith would take the Rainbow Dusk and the Seven Star Lotus and run.
After he walked out, the smithy’s main doors were closed and forbidden for any players to enter.
Ye Tian Xie did not leave to do anything else and just loitered around the area…..
After thirty minutes, seven different coloured lights penetrated through the smithy’s roof and soared into the clouds…..It was just a flash of light and not many people saw it. Even those that did see it also thought that a blur appeared in their eyes.
Ye Tian Xie thinking about the Beginner Village suddenly had his heart skip a beat. He walked in front of the smithy’s door and attempted knocking on it.
Very soon, the door was opened and the blacksmith looked much more exhausted, but he also looked very satisfied. He said in a relieved voice, “Success…..It’s over there, go and take it.”
Ye Tian Xie’s eyes looked where the blacksmith pointed. His eyes fiercely shrank when he saw the magnificent seven coloured light shining.
Blue, scarlet, green, purple, yellow, white, and black…..It represented the elemental energies of water, fire, wind, lightning, earth, light, and darkness, these seven elements intertwining. What was releasing this glow was linked with a crystal like chain…..A sun and a moon. The moon was a crescent moon and the sun was a full sun, both only being around the size of a thumb. Although they were small, the light that was being released was so illusory that it made one fall into ecstasy. They had been separated, but now they had come together again. The sun and moon overlapped, symbolizing the arrival of dusk. So, its name was called, Rainbow Dusk.
Ye Tian Xie walked over and excitedly picked it up. The seven coloured light released from it was stronger and more magnificent by countless times and it was slowly releasing an elemental energy. Although it had no form, the mental attack of this elemental energy shocked one like a storm. This feeling was telling him…..the Rainbow Dusk had already been completely repaired! The broken item had already been reborn! It was another complete Mysterious God Equipment!
His heart was filled with excitement and anticipation as he looked at its stats……
