Chapter 508: Unraveling the Seal

Bai Yunfei thought about the Nephrite Throne being one of the ‘Ten Great Regalia’. The Nephrite Throne was a high-heaven tier soul armament, but this item in front of him was even stronger than that…..did that mean this was also one of the Ten Great Regalia?!

“Is….is it possible?” Bai Yunfei asked himself as he stared at the cloth, his eyes shining brightly with the possibility, “It might just be one….”

His lips cracked into a smile along with the smug look in his eyes.

Treasure! This was really a treasure! A treasure that couldn’t be any more of a treasure if it tried….

Even if eighteen more people from the Xing came for it, Bai Yunfei would fight for it. It was that worth it.

“But this can’t be considered a ‘treasure’ right now….its sealed, but every lock has a key. As long as I can unseal the seal, then it’ll become a true regalia. But what do I need to unseal this?”

This crucial question came to him. With the cloth sealed, this ‘regalia’ was nothing more than an ordinary piece of cloth.

“Well, I can always study this later. The more important thing is see what happens when I upgrade it.”

The idea of upgrading made him excited. He had never upgraded a ‘regalia’ before.

Holding it in his left his hand, Bai Yunfei placed his right hand on top of it, staring grimly at it.

“Upgrade!”

Five hundred points of soulforce was sucked away from him; the amount of soulforce taken from him was by no means ignorable.

Upgrade Requirement: 500 Soulpoints

Bai Yunfei’s eyes flew open. This was a pleasant surprise!

“95% sealed!! Then….does that mean upgrading can unseal it?!”

The result of this had been a surprisingly profitable venture. The seal on the cloth could be unraveled by means of upgrading!

Even more surprisingits defenses had been sealed as well! Another 200 points of defense had been added with just one upgrade!

“Upgrading only broke 5% of its seal, but it added 200 points of defense and then another 100 additional points of defense. Hm….if I just upgrade it even more….” Bai Yunfei muttered to himself, feeling his heart start to pound hard against his ribcage.

It wasn’t from fatigue, but from his excitement.

Almost impatiently, Bai Yunfei continued to upgrade….

With Bai Yunfei’s current strength and equipment, he had roughly ten thousand points of soulforce almost. So by the time he hit +10, Bai Yunfei was feeling out of breath and soulforce (He had failed several times in the process).

Finally….

Upgrade Successful
[25% SEALED] Equipment Grade: Low Divine
Elemental Affinity: Water, Darkness
Upgrade Level: +10
Defense: 6000
Additional Defense: 2500
Soul Compatibility: 10%
Equipment Effect 1: Decrease damage taken by all spirit-related attacks by 50%.
[SEALED] Equipment Effect 2: 200% Increase in healing from damage done to the soul.
[SEALED] Equipment Effect 3: 100% Increase in soul stabilization rate.
+10 Additional Effect: 30% Chance to completely deflect a spirit-based attack. 
Cooldown of 10 minutes.
Upgrade Requirement: 500 Soulpoints

He wasn’t all too excited though when he got it to +10. “It’s still not unsealed after being upgraded ten times? 25% left…..I only managed to unseal the first effect, the second and third are still sealed…..

“But that +10 additional effect is still really strong!! This….deserves to be called an additional effect of a divine tier soul armament if it can reflect attacks….

“And the defense….is at 8500 in total now! Doesn’t this mean to say that even a mid-heaven tier soul armament wouldn’t be enough to break through its defense? That’s…..crazy.”

Bai Yunfei didn’t doubt the strength of this item. This equipment was for sure a ‘regalia’!!

There had been a change that happened to the cloth when Bai Yunfei was upgrading it, though.

It used to be as big as a large handkerchief, but with each successful upgradeor maybe it was better to say with each successful unsealing attemptit grew….even smaller!

The way it grew smaller wasn’t equal either. Only two sides of it grew smaller while the other two sides lengthened, meaning that the cloth went from a handkerchief to a ‘cloth strip’....

Bai Yunfei was skeptical about this. How was he supposed to wear or put it on?? Was it something he had to tie around his face, like a mask? Or something that wraps around the arm? Or maybe it was a type of belly warmer?

The defensive properties of the item could be applied when worn forever, but the equipment and additional effects required the equipment being worn properly in order to be used.

Now that he was at this stage of upgrading, Bai Yunfei had a hint of what it could be. “Guessing from its shape, this is a….scarf?!”

It wasn’t the type of scarf that could cover the entire head, but a strip that could at least cover the forehead.

Bai Yunfei didn’t want to wear the scarf immediately. Instead of that, he took out a relatively large white piece of stone after a moment’s debate.

Unique Equipment
Equipment Grade: Low Heaven
Elemental Affinity: None
Equipment Effect 1: Allow the successful upgrade of any equipment +11 and under once.
Equipment Effect 2: Increase the tier of an equipment when crafting by one (Low Heaven tier being the highest).
Cannot be upgraded. 

This was the +11 Guaranteed Upgrade Stone!

“+10 Upgrades means there’s only 25% of the seal left. If I keep upgrading, I should be able to unseal it.” Bai Yunfei muttered. He still wanted to continue upgrading, even if there wasn’t the matter of the seal. It was obviously very worth it to use the precious upgrade stones on something like a regalia.

Bai Yunfei placed the two items together and prepared himself for the upgrade. Preparation and a steady hand was the best way to improve his upgrading chances, or so he learned after his experimentation. All those times spent studying the principles behind upgrading hadn’t been wasted, and Bai Yunfei had a good chance about this.

“Upgrade.”

The upgrade stone turned to dust at his thought. It fell from his hands and into the cloth.

Bai Yunfei opened his eyes three seconds later, his eyes shining with understanding at the item in his hand.

“Only 15% of that seal left, and the second equipment effect has been unsealed. Now….”

A second later, Bai Yunfei took out basketball sized white stone from his space ring.

This was the only +12 Guaranteed Upgrade Stone he had!

“Upgrade!”
