He was currently a pair of steel arms, and his thick arms wouldn't be able to do a delicate work like wiping someone's sweat.
In the meantime, he had been trying to restore his body to human form, but it had repeatedly ended up in failure. Perhaps he had to wait for a period of time so as to allow his body and spirit to recover before he could transform again.
Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue smiled, before exhaling and saying, "Then you better take a few steps back. I'm soon going to increase the power of the phoenix flames to move to the next phase of the forging."
Song Shuhang asked as he stepped back, "Fairy, is the whale sage bone about to take shape?"
"How could it be so easy? This is the bone of an Eighth Stage Profound Sage, after all. However, after I increase the flame's power, and hammer it a few thousand times, it should start taking the shape of the 'Defiant Whale Warrior'."
In other words, there were going to be a few thousand more '+100's and '+50's, truly heart-rending.
Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue said, "Don't wear such a sad expression on your face. In order to forge your magic weapon, I even brought out the Nine Virtues Phoenix Fire. You'll have an increase in quality but without an increase in the price. You should be happy."
Song Shuhang squeezed out a smile, and said, "Thank you Fairy, but... I would be more grateful if you could turn off the pricing function."
"Customer, that isn't possible." Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue's eyebrows raised as she said, "The pricing function is the only fun that those of our Heavy Metal Sect can have. Forging is a very boring thing, and if the only fun that we have is stripped away from us, we would lose the energy to forge things."
After saying that, she extended her hand and more flames were summoned. The flames shrouded her, causing her to look the same as Song Shuhang when he'd borrowed 'Scarlet Heaven Sword' to use the Heaven Burning Flaming Saber Technique.
The sea turtle retreated as well.
The sea turtle said, "Not good, I'm going to get dehydrated. This flame is too overbearing."
Song Shuhang retreated together with Senior Turtle. While doing so, he felt as if his liquefied body was about to evaporate.
Song Shuhang asked, "Senior Turtle, have I become smaller?"
The sea turtle glanced at him, and then shook its head. "Not only have you not become smaller... even with you currently being a pair of steel arms, you should have actually expanded a bit."
Song Shuhang curiously said, "I'm actually expanding? Isn't my body supposed to be evaporating?"
The sea turtle said, "Perhaps it's because of the laws of thermal expansion and contraction?"
Song Shuhang: "..."
He turned his fists around and 'looked' towards Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue.
She was shrouded in flames, and her figure could be seen vaguely swaying in the fire. Her slender arms were waving the big and small hammers, quickly smashing down with both of them at varying times. The scene was one wherein she appeared to be dancing.
"Ding, ding, ding, ding~"
The flaming text flooded the screen, filling up Song Shuhang's 'line of sight'.
The Senior of the Heavy Metal Sect who invented this feature must be a very sadistic person. The average person would definitely not have been able to invent such a way of showing the price.
While he was in thought, all of a sudden, Song Shuhang and Senior Turtle felt something in their hearts.
The two raised their heads and looked at the sky.
However, the two could only see the ceiling of the Palace of Winter.
The sea turtle said, "This feeling... is another person becoming a Profound Sage?"
What was going on this year, did seven Venerables actually have an appointment and all decided to advance this year? Or, could this all be related to the arrival of the 'spiritual energy tides'?
With the imminent change of the Wielder of the Will, the next wave of spiritual energy was also in sight. In the near future, there was going to be a prosperous period for practitioners all over the universe!
Song Shuhang asked, "Is it the divinity show? Who's the one that has ascended?"
The sea turtle said, "Heavens, how am I supposed to know? I can't see the screen of the divinity show."
Song Shuhang recalled that they were still in the 'Inner World'.
With his Inner World's continuous evolution, it has been becoming more and more special.
Now, while staying in the Inner World, although he could still sense that there was a Profound Sage who wanted to 'show their divinity', but without Song Shuhang's specific instructions, the screen of that person's divinity show would not be shown inside the 'Inner World'.
Song Shuhang willed it and gave the Inner World an order to broadcast the screen of the 'divinity show'.
In the next moment, a projection appeared on the ceiling of the Palace of Winter.
The Inner World did not directly let the 'divinity show' manifest itself into the world, but instead re-broadcasted the 'divinity show' inside it.
This was a security function that came with the Inner World.
On the screen, a man was sitting cross-legged. The robe on his body was damaged and his long hair was in a mess, but the mess did nothing to his elegance at all.
Despite him merely sitting there, the void seemed to collapse with him as the center.
"It's Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue!" Song Shuhang recognized the figure at a glance.
Earlier, Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue had informed him that Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue had gone to transcend his tribulation, while he himself had become a candidate for the Eighth Cultivator of True Virtue.
Now, in the blink of an eye, Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue had successfully transcended his heavenly tribulation and became an Eighth Stage Profound Sage.
Song Shuhang curiously asked, "How much time did Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue spend to transcend his tribulation?"
Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue continued to quickly strike down with her hammers as she replied, "A few days. According to Fourth Cultivator of True Virtue, he'd begun preparations for his heavenly tribulation after he went to sleep last week. It should have been taken him about two or three days."
The reason why Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue had only informed Song Shuhang today was because she had just woken up today.
At this time, the entire universe was seething with excitement.
The practitioners these days were undoubtedly extremely fortunate.
Within a single month, they were actually able to witness the birth of six Profound Sages, and now there was going to be a seventh one very soon!
This kind of event where Venerables gathered together to transcend their tribulation and become Profound Sages, bringing about the grandeur of the divinity shows, was rare even in ancient times.
Profound Sage Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue… this was likely going to be his name now. At this moment, he was meditating and recovering.
In the next moment, there was a seal that condensed and transformed right beside him.
On the Sage Seal, three daoist names appeared.
Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue, Mo Ran, Profound Night...
These daoist names were the ones used by Profound Sage Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue in the past. Before he became the 'Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue', he should have used one of the other two daoist names, Mo Ran or Profound Night.
Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue opened his eyes, and after thinking for a moment, he reached out and lightly touched on 'Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue'. After becoming the Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue, his previous daoist names no longer held any meaning to him.
Even if he was no longer the owner of the 'Nine Virtues Phoenix Saber', the fact that he was still the Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue would not change.
The Sage Name was confirmed.
The Sage Seal had the name 'Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue' imprinted on itself and took shape.
The radiance of the Sage Seal enveloped Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue, allowing him to exude the dignity of a Profound Sage.
The seventh Sage in a thousand years, Profound Sage Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue.
Practitioners all over the universe found this daoist name to be especially memorable.
This was a daoist name destined to be included in the annals of the world of cultivation, and it was also something that would be firmly remembered by the masses.
One day in the future, when the future generations of the world of cultivation were to talk about the 'prosperous years when Profound Sages had continuously appeared', they would definitely mention the seventh Profound Sage.
In addition to that, the daoist name 'Profound Sage Tyrannical Song', the first Sage in a thousand years would surely be remembered as well. After all, he was the first Sage.
However, the second, third, fourth, and fifth Sages' daoist names would not necessarily be remembered.
The Sixth Sage in a thousand years 'Sage Monarch White' was, on the other hand, very impressive and belonged to the type that one would not be able to forget even if they wanted to.
In addition, the catchy daoist name 'Profound Sage Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue' that simply went so well with him being the seventh Sage, certainly belonged to the type that would be remembered.
The practitioners from all over the universe looked at the sky once again as they awaited the following 'Profound Sage Speech'.
What kind of 'Speech' was 'Profound Sage Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue' going to give?
Daoist? Scholarly? Buddhist? Tantric? Demonic?
Having said that, from the first all the way to the seventh Sage in a thousand years, aside from the fifth Sage who was a holy paladin, the rest turned out to be cultivators.
This placed great pressure on the practitioners of other departments in the universe.
The divinity show had finally concluded.
Afterwards, the 'Profound Sage Speech' session had begun.
Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue was obviously well prepared.
He had prepared the script beforehand.
He coughed lightly and cleared his throat before he began to provide something that could be considered to be an 'Encyclopedia of Cultivation Skills' to the practitioners in the universe.
Alchemy, planting spiritual herbs, mining skills, forging magical treasures, raising spirit beasts, sewing robes, rune making, laying out formation, and even some stuff on immortal chefs...
Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue had a lot of content in his speech, but because the time was limited, he only focused on the more important points of each one. Nevertheless, people were able to benefit greatly from each of the things he stated.
The teachings of the Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue were very thorough.
Although the practitioners wouldn't suddenly be 'enlightened', with their strength rising as a result, the contents of the speech would be able to help them in the long run.
Song Shuhang said with admiration, "As expected of Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue, he really does have a wide range of knowledge."
In fact, in addition to the graceful sword immortals or scholarly faction practitioners, the style of the practitioner in his dreams also included one with a vast amount of knowledge like Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue.
He recalled that Medicine Master and Palace Master Seven Lives Talisman were very happy when they had gotten Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue's approval about their path of pill refining and talisman crafting.
Regardless of whether it was formations, pill refining, forging magical treasures, or talisman crafting, Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue was among the top three in the Nine Provinces Number One Group. He was a very knowledgeable cultivator, a textbook-like man.
Song Shuhang hoped that one day in the future, he could also become an existence like Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue.
Afterwards, when a lot of newcomers were added to the 'Nine Provinces Number One Group', he could help them with his rich knowledge just like Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue. He could use his knowledge to leave the impression of a reliable senior on the minds of the newcomers.
Song Shuhang thought, "I'm still young. When I become a Seventh Stage Venerable in the future, perhaps I'd be able to acquire a huge amount of knowledge like Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue."
Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue's 'Profound Sage Speech' did not cause any special occurrences from the Great Way, but the practitioners from all over the universe were still infatuated by it.
They would have wished for him to keep going on for days or nights, but unfortunately, the Profound Sage Speech had a time limit.
Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue's speech was coming to an end.
The practitioners all over the universe constantly expressed their unwillingness.
Then, under the unwilling eyes of the practitioners, Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue's speech ended.
After that, a vast amount of power of virtue condensed and gathered towards him.
But at this moment, Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue's eyes became solemn.
He wanted to see if the strange 'inner demon tribulation' encountered by those who transcended their tribulations recently would affect him as well...
Song Shuhang said, "Also, it's not really good for me to wipe Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue's sweat in this state."
