Chapter 55: Refining Problem
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After Wu Mo met that “little girl” the next day, he would find an excuse to evade her. Right now, he just wanted to refine the Divine artifact. As for other matters, he could only put them on hold first.
Returning to the living room of his single dormitory, Wu Mo placed the huge iron ball that he had obtained from Unique Treasure Hall on the floor.
The surface of the black iron ball was patchy, and one could tell that it was made from hundreds of different equipment materials. There were also green and blue lights mixed in, giving it a rather mysterious look.
Although the iron ball’s surface was bumpy and rough, it was valued at over ¥10,000,000. While the method of melting the equipment into raw materials greatly reduced its value, the equipment had been bound by Unique Treasure Hall’s people. Aside from melting them into iron blocks, Wu Mo could not find a better choice.
He placed the raw materials he needed on the coffee table.
Wu Mo’s emotions were a little complicated as he looked at the colorful raw materials piled up in front of him.
When he first arrived in this continent, Wu Mo had already made plans to forge the thunder god’s hammer. Now, half a month later, he had finally prepared all the materials.
However, Wu Mo still had no idea whether he could forge the thunder god’s hammer or not.
“I can only depend on fate.”
Holding the Legendary Essence that was emitting golden light in his hand, Wu Mo sighed and slowly closed his eyes.
He calmed his mind, and not long after, all the senses in his body were abruptly cut off. He had already entered the Divine Forging Space.
When he opened his eyes, his surroundings were in a state of chaos. There was no concept of time there. Other than eternal night, there was only the workbench and the furnace that acted as sources of light.
Wu Mo noticed the huge iron ball and many colorful materials placed near the workbench.
Due to the large amount, the items could not be stacked on the workbench.
The rare materials emanated constant light like fireflies in the night sky.
He took a deep breath and gazed at the golden glow in his hand with a determined look.
The most important material, the Legendary Essence, had been found. It would determine his success in refining Mjolnir.
Wu Mo went up to the workbench and felt cold energy lingering around his body. He calmed down, and his thoughts became active.
He first put his Armor-piercing Short Staff on the table. Next, he examined the huge iron ball.
The iron ball was only one meter in diameter, but it weighed more than 200 kilograms. It could not be placed into the furnace like that.
Wu Mo first poured the decomposition solution on the iron ball and waited for the metal to slowly separate. Then he used a golden stone knife to remove the ingots of mixed colors.
The flames in the furnace continued to rise, and Wu Mo put the cut iron into the furnace. Soon after, the iron was decomposed by the intense high temperature and melted into various raw materials.
After purifying the 200-kilogram iron ball, Wu Mo took out the blueprint for Mjolnir. Then, he planned to pour the purified iron to make the hammer prototype.
First, he would pour the purified molten iron into the mold and wait for it to cool down and take shape. Subsequently, he would refine various raw materials and finally pour the energy into the mold.
However, there were many problems in the first step.
The energy in the large iron ball was too complex, and it was impossible to succeed in one go. After the molten iron solidified, it quickly formed layers. Not only did these layers block the transmission of energy, but their hardness was also not up to the standard.
Looking at the failed product in front of him, Wu Mo could only choose to go back.
However, he could not find a feasible solution for the complex energy within the molten iron.
There were at least five types of metals in the molten iron, and among them were the energy of ores and various damaged array materials. They could not be separated by conventional means.
Facing his first obstacle, Wu Mo was somewhat helpless. He began to wonder if there was a way to solve this issue.
Many combat classes in the Divine Arms Academy had explained the steps of purification.
It just consisted of raising the temperature of the flame, burning the unimportant energy directly, or adding purification liquid to separate the materials with different densities.
With that said, the energy of the iron ball that Wu Mo had calcined was too complicated. It could not be removed via raising the temperature or using purification liquid.
He had tried those methods before, but the results were difficult to describe in a word.
Wu Mo stared at the molten iron in the crucible that had already started to cool down. His heart was anxious like ants on a hot pot.
“System, do you have a way to solve this?”
After some lengthy contemplation, Wu Mo searched through his memories but still could not find a suitable purification method.
In the end, he could only place his hopes on the system. After all, his current knowledge was still too little, and the Divine weapon was out of reach. Without external help, it would be extremely difficult to complete the forging of the Divine weapon.
[Ding! The system is unable to find a solution within the host’s level unless the host joins the Blacksmith Association and obtains the help of a seven-star master blacksmith.]
Wu Mo’s question was quickly answered as the system’s voice echoed in his mind.
However, after Wu Mo received his answer, he did not feel any joy in his heart.
“Is that really the case?”
A hint of disappointment flashed across Wu Mo’s face, and the determination in his heart was also somewhat shaken.
If the system was telling the truth…
Then all of Wu Mo’s hard work so far would be meaningless. If he could not forge a Divine weapon with his own abilities, then he would not be helping his predecessor fulfill his long-cherished wish. Moreover, Wu Mo did not want to complete the forging of a divine weapon with the help of others.
As a blacksmith respected by tens of thousands of people, Wu Mo’s pride would not allow him to do such a thing.
Moreover, seven-star and above blacksmiths were all big shots in the city. How could the current Wu Mo come into contact with those people?
No matter how he thought about it, it was impossible.
Rather than placing his hopes on those big shots who did not exist among the common folk, he might as well work harder and become a genius who was on equal footing with them.
A while ago, he had heard on the news that a young man named Han Feng had become a seven-star blacksmith at the age of twenty-five, and he had even forged a Divine weapon.
If others could do it, why could he, Wu Mo, not do it too?!
Thinking of that, Wu Mo clenched his fists and looked at the furnace again.
There were only two reasons why the molten iron could not be purified: the temperature was not high enough, or the grade of the purifying liquid was not high enough.
Right now, he could not obtain a high-grade purifying liquid or obtain the help of a seven-star magnate. Instead of worrying about this, he might as well think of a way to raise the temperature of the furnace!
After all, this was a Divine-grade Forging Space, and the furnace provided by the system was definitely not an ordinary one. He did not believe that the highest temperature of the furnace could not exceed 1,700 degrees!
