I'm glad he didn't end up giving away the golden lotus lol, the writer just used it to show how much he cares for his brother but luckily it ended up being unnecessary. I was wholly expecting him to hand over Bai Ling as well so the brother could learn the Nirvana sword intent / dao. At this point i'm wondering if both the fire and the water items will get used, giving him a dual element body, one sword being defensive and like water (fluent movements) and the other as fire, being very offensive. Either way, they're going to find some massive lucky chances and he'll probably give most of it to his brother because the things he's gotten so far are probably beyond what they'd find. (unless it's a cultivation technique that goes beyond violet thingy and is for the golden core since his ice based one doesn't go that far in.) I think the brother will probably get to meet Bai Ling at least, they get along and he gives him some insights.
