Chapter 28: Crushing“We will reduce the price as well, and bring back our customers, unless they reduce the price even further!” Pavilion Lord Liang said codly, Rain Pavilion totally caught him off guard this time, everything that’s happening right now is “thanks” to Master Kong!
He looks coldly at Master Kong. If Master Kong didn’t provoke Yi Tianyun earlier , will there be such an opportunity in Rain Pavilion? Now let alone making profit, they are losing their precious customer.
Master Kong was stunned. At this point how can he think Yi Tianyun is a trash? Even though he saw Yi Tianyun forge a spirit tool firsthand, he still didn’t believe it, and now he found himself speechless after Yi Tianyun forge so many spirit tools.
“Pavilion Lord Liang, I suspect that they are here to spy on us, yes! They’re definitely spies sent by Rain Pavilion!” Master Kong began to talk nonsense, and shifting the blame to Yi Tianyun.
Pavilion Lord Liang already got a glum expression on his face, and now Master Kong still dared to talk his way out of this. Yi Tianyun is clearly from Jade Palace, How could he be a spy from Rain Pavilion? Because real spies won’t associate themselves with any faction. Associating themselves with any faction means becoming enemy of that faction’s enemy as well, it’s not a wise move.
Suddenly, a guard hastily run upstairs in from the outside, panting. The moment he saw Pavilion Lord Liang he shouted: “Bad news!… Rain Pavilion starts selling upper level spirit tool at the price, the price… 50.000 silver lower than ours!”
They’re all stunned, because upper level spirit tool is very rare, so there is no need to lower the price that much. There are only a few possible reason Rain Pavilion reduce the price that much. The first is there are too many upper level spirit tool, and the second is because the demand is too low, causing the price to plummet! And if they don’t reduce it as well they’ll lose more customers.
Because the reputation of Rain Pavilion has skyrocketed, more more people will prefer doing business with Rain Pavilion than Wind Pavilion. The only solution they have is for Palace Lord Liang to negotiate with Rain Pavilion hoping they would stop their tactics to reduce the price.
Even though Rain Pavilion managed to sell a lot of spirit tools, that’s not necessarily the case in the future, but that doesn’t change the fact that this is Wind Pavilion and it has tarnished their name.
If this is considered a fight, this is already a lost for Wind Pavilion, even though there is a possibility to recover in the future a lost is a lost. Moreover, if this keeps up, they won’t even have that chance to recover.
“They reduce the price again, moreover it’s upper level spirit tool this time, the owner of Rain Pavilion is crazy!” it’s getting on Pavilion Lord Liang’s nerve, this situation is far worse than before, it’s not a problem if they only have one or two upper level spirit tool, because Rain Pavilion also had their own stock, but if somehow they have around seven, or even worse a dozen! then this is absolutely bad news for Wind Pavilion…
“Who forges it?” Pavilion Lord Liang hurriedly asked.
“According to our spies over there, the name is Yi Tianyun, disciple of Jade Palace.” The guards reported.
“That guy again!” Pavilion Lord Liang who was holding a cup of tea can’t contain his anger any longer, he screamed and slam the cup to the ground, clank!
Master Kong is so bitter, he didn’t see this coming at all. And all of a sudden the situation is very grave.
“He is also able to forge upper level spirit tool. At that age?” Master Kong is even more frustrated, he didn’t expect to provoke someone so talented.
It’s still a long way to go for Master Kong to reach 4th grade Blacksmith, heck he might never reach it. And even if he became a fourth level blacksmith, the success rate of creating an upper level spirit tool is still quite low. The most he can do now is forge a middle level spirit tool, and even then he only has 30% success rate!
