In the alchemy room, the dome was closed.

Wang Teng walked out of the alchemy room and met Dong Yutang and the others in the hall again.

"Junior Brother Wang Teng, no, Grandmaster Wang Teng!" Hu Qi's white-haired face was filled with excitement. He strode forward and changed the way he addressed Wang Teng.

Wang Teng was caught between laughter and tears.

How realistic!

"Grandmaster Wang Teng, have you succeeded in making the Yin-Yang Dragon Essence Pill?" The eternal stage female martial warrior walked forward and asked.

They saw Wang Teng resisting the lightning calamity but they still wanted to hear the answer from his mouth. They were afraid of unforeseen circumstances.

The Yin-Yang Dragon Essence Pill was too important to them.

"Thankfully, I haven't disappointed your expectations!" Seeing their anxiousness, Wang Teng didn't keep them in suspense and immediately took out a jade bottle. He handed it over to the two of them.

The three Yin-Yang Dragon Essence Pills lay quietly inside. The two eternal stage martial warriors widened their eyes and stared at them intently as if trying to discern something.

Dong Yutang and the others came over and asked after some hesitation, "Can you open it for us to take a look?"

Hu Qi looked up at Wang Teng instinctively.

"Of course!" Wang Teng nodded nonchalantly.

Hu Qi took a deep breath and opened the jade bottle. He poured out a Yin-Yang Dragon Essence Pill and let it float above his palm.

"One, two, three… Gasp, eight patterns!"

Dong Yutang and the others stared at the Yin-Yang Dragon Essence Pill, looking closely at the patterns on its surface and carefully counting them. They couldn't help but gasp in shock.

Eight patterns meant that the Yin-Yang Dragon Essence Pill had reached eighty percent of its medicinal power!

They couldn't help but look at Wang Teng, who had a calm expression on his face. Their hearts were churning with astonishment.

The Yin-Yang Dragon Essence Pill was a supreme-rank pill but it could reach 80% efficacy. Just how profound was Wang Teng's mastery of alchemy?

At this moment, they couldn't help but feel a genuine sense of admiration for Wang Teng.

"Eight patterns? Looks like Grandmaster Wang Teng's 50% to 60% confidence is a conservative estimate," Hu Qi said with a smile. He was elated.

He thought Wang Teng was being modest.

"Initially, I'm only 50% to 60% confident. However, I accidentally broke through to the ninth grandmaster level so my confidence increased," Wang Teng smiled and replied.

Hu Qi: …

Dong Yutang and the others stared at Wang Teng in disbelief. They stuttered, "Grandmaster Wang Teng, you advanced to the ninth grandmaster level?"

"That's right. Maybe I'm just lucky. When I was studying the Yin-Yang Dragon Essence Pill, I seemed to have understood something and achieved a breakthrough," Wang Teng said with a straight face, nonchalantly spinning a tale.

Dong Yutang and the others: …

What a sudden breakthrough!

How come they never experienced such a "sudden" breakthrough?

The three of them looked at Wang Teng's calm expression and felt a little… jealous!

Seeing their expressions, Wang Teng felt a bit guilty. Was he overdoing it?

They were all his elders!

He would take note next time.

"Grandmasters, there's no need to be like this. Actually, I only encounter such situations occasionally. It normally happens two or three times a year. It's not that common," Wang Teng reassured them.

Dong Yutang and the others: …

Two or three times a year wasn't common? Did they have some misunderstanding about enlightenment?

Hu Qi also caught on and gave them a peculiar look. Then, he looked at Wang Teng.

This junior brother didn't know how to console people!

"Ahem." The eternal stage martial warrior coughed awkwardly and broke the awkward atmosphere. "Grandmaster Wang Teng, since you're confident in making the Yin-Yang Dragon Essence Pill, how about we entrust you with refining the star core of the titan-level star beast?"

"That's right, that's right. The Yin-Yang Dragon Essence Pill made from the star core of a titan-level star beast is what we truly need." Hu Qi regained his senses. He almost forgot his primary purpose here.

"It will be harder to make a pill from the star core from a titan-level star beast. I've never seen a titan-level star beast's star core so I can't promise you anything." Wang Teng hesitated. "Based on what I know, the star core of a titan-level star beast might be a little different."

Hu Qi nodded. A jade box appeared in his hand and he said in a low voice, "This is the star core of the titan-level star beast."

Wang Teng glanced curiously at the jade box. Even without activating his Real Eye, he could see the mysterious runes on the box's surface. They possessed sealing power.

"This jade box is specially used to keep the star cores of titan-level star beasts as they contain a special substance called the eternal matter!" Hu Qi said in a serious tone.

"Eternal matter!" Wang Teng muttered with a sharp glint in his eyes.

"Yes, eternal matter. This is the key to becoming an eternal stage martial warrior." Hu Qi nodded.

"The key to becoming an eternal stage martial warrior!" Wang Teng frowned and asked, "What is eternal matter?"

"Eternal matter is a peculiar substance in the world. Eternal-stage martial warriors extract this substance from the universe and incorporate it into themselves, making their souls and bodies immortal. That way, they can truly coexist and decline with the universe. As long as they possess the eternal matter, eternal stage martial warriors cannot be killed. To eliminate them, you must completely erase the eternal matter. Even a trace of the eternal matter can potentially lead to revival," Hu Qi explained.
