Reincarnation Of The Strongest Sword God - Chapter 215-216
Chapter 215 - Basic Fire Resistance Potion
From beginning to end, Shi Feng had lured a total of nine Flame Giants, kiting them around the throne room.
Due to his actions, the Flame Giants had not been able to showcase their prowess even once in this entire battle. As a result, the Dark Warlock Salou became very easy to deal with, breathing his last under everyone's heavy bombardment.
Even an amazing Boss could not compete against a reincarnated player. Their only fate was to be a plaything... unto death.
Seeing Salou fall, everyone jumped in celebration.
The Beastman Munition Factory belonged to the category of Expedition Dungeons. Unlike the Dark Moon Graveyard, which was a Survival Dungeon, players only needed to kill the final Boss in an expedition Dungeon to clear it;there was no need to leave the Dungeon for the clear to be official.At this moment, the White River City Region System Announcement had already appeared.
White River City Region System Announcement: Congratulations to Assassin's Alliance for becoming the first team to conquer the Hard Mode Beastman Munition Factory. All players within the team will be rewarded with 50,000 EXP and 1 Silver Coin.
White River City Region System Announcement: Congratulations to Assassin's Alliance for becoming the fastest team to conquer the Hard Mode Beastman Munition Factory. All players within the team will be rewarded with 50,000 EXP and one Tier 1 Gemstone of random Attribute.
As it was not the First Clear of Hell Mode, the Main God System would not be so generous as to reward them with reputation points. Normally, players would only receive EXP for obtaining the First Clear of Hard Mode.
Also, the race for Team Dungeons was categorized into two types: Hard Mode and Hell Mode. Normal Mode was not taken into consideration as no time challenge existed.Normally, the Main God System would implement a clear time for Team Dungeons. The clear time set by the system depended on the type of Team Dungeon and its difficulty. Meanwhile, the Hard Mode Beastman Munition Factory's clear time was set at three hours. The Main God System would usually set the clear time at a very high bar. Only if players had achieved the standard of an elite team, determined by the Main God System, would they have a chance to clear the Dungeon in this set amount of time.Meanwhile, under Shi Feng's command, the Assassin's Alliance had only spent 2 hours and 22 minutes to clear the Hard Mode Beastman Munition Factory, surpassing the estimated time. This proved that the team's strength was already above the standards of a normal elite team.However, everyone on the team knew full well that this achievement was all due to Shi Feng's contributions.
After a round of mad celebration, everyone finally welcomed the most exciting moment.
They began examining the item drops of the Dark Warlock Salou, the final Boss monster of the Beastman Munition Factory.
Compared to the previous two Bosses, the loot from Salou was far more bountiful. Salou had dropped a total of seven items. Among them, five were Level 10 Mysterious-Iron ranked helmets, each being a part of a Set Equipment for different classes. With great luck, Salou even dropped a Basic Fire Resistance Potion Recipe. As for the final item, it was a Secret-Silver Staff meant for Elementalists.
[Elemental Scepter] (Staff, Secret-Silver Rank)
Intelligence +15, Strength +4, Agility +4, Endurance +10
Increases elemental damage by 5%
Increases casting speed by 10%
With just a glance, one could immediately tell that this was a top-tier staff meant for Elementalists.
When the mages in the team looked at the details of this staff, drool nearly leaked from their mouths.
Although these mages had quite a few pieces of Mysterious-Iron Equipment on their persons, their weapons and equipment were all below Level 10. They were clearly much weaker compared to Level 10 weapons and equipment, not to mention a Secret-Silver ranked staff.
Cruel Sword immediately handed the Elemental Staff to Mu Qing. However, nobody in the team expressed any dissatisfaction about Cruel Sword's decision because Mu Qing's strength was indeed very powerful. Moreover, her damage was ranked number one amongst all the mages present. Following which, Cruel Sword handed the Wind Extinguisher Helmet, Wind Extinguisher Armguard, and Basic Fire Resistance Potion Recipe to Shi Feng. Similarly, nobody in the team had any gripes about this decision. If it weren't for Shi Feng, they would not have cleared this Dungeon in the first place.
With this, Shi Feng now had four pieces of the Wind Extinguisher Set Equipment. Although he did not possess all six pieces, they were sufficient for him to replace the Bronze ranked Silvermoon Set Equipment.
"Brother Ye Feng, you've helped us out so much, yet, you're only taking so few items. I am truly embarrassed about this, so please let me pay you another 100,000 Credits as compensation. Otherwise, if the other Guilds discover this matter, they will definitely make mock us for being insincere!" Cruel Sword said with a laugh as he looked at Shi Feng.Putting aside the advertising benefits brought about from obtaining the First Clear of the Hard Mode Beastman Munition Factory, just the equipment they obtained was already of considerable value. It was especially true for the Secret-Silver ranked Elemental Scepter. The value of this staff alone could compare to half a dozen pieces of Level 10 Mysterious-Iron Equipment. Hence, spending an additional 100,000 Credits to compensate Shi Feng was a minor matter.
To put it another way, the Assassin's Alliance had made a huge profit from this deal. After all, the First Clear of a 20-man Hard Mode Team Dungeon held extraordinary significance, as up until this moment, any Guild had yet to obtain the First Clear of a 20-man Hard Mode Team Dungeon.
Obtaining the First Clear of the Hard Mode Beastman Munition Factory had undeniably allowed the Assassin's Alliance to break free from their awkward position in White River City. They no longer had to suffer the suppression from Dark Star.
Of course, by giving Shi Feng 100,000 Credits, Cruel Sword also had the intention of deepening the relationship between Shi Feng and the Assassin's Alliance. Cruel Sword still wished to recruit Shi Feng into the Guild.
Shi Feng could easily see through Cruel Sword's intentions. However, he merely smiled in reply, receiving all that Cruel Sword offered without hesitation.
Cruel Sword had no idea that Shi Feng did not really care about this equipment. Even if it were the Wind Extinguisher Set Equipment, it was simply a temporary set of equipment for Shi Feng. Meanwhile, amongst these items, the one Shi Feng paid the most attention to was the Basic Fire Resistance Potion Recipe.
[Basic Fire Resistance Potion]
After consumption, increases Fire Resistance by 15 points for 1 hour.
Currently, this item had no market value. However, when the various large Guilds started raiding the Level 25 Flame Nest, the value of this Basic Fire Resistance Potion Recipe would soar beyond one's imagination. It's worth would not be less than a piece of Fine-Gold Equipment.
Players were not allowed to use the Flaming Sun Scripture when in a Dungeon. Meanwhile, equipment that increased a player's Fire Resistance was extremely rare. The quickest way to increase one's Fire Resistance was through the use of a Basic Fire Resistance Potion. If players did not possess this potion, raiding the Flame Nest would only be possible in their dreams.
If Shi Feng started looking for a Potionmaker to craft the Basic Fire Resistance Potion now, he would carve out an additional path to wealth for the future. Even ten pieces of Secret-Silver Equipment could not rival what he could earn with these potions. "Brother Ye Feng, are you free tomorrow?" At this moment, Mu Qing walked over to Shi Feng after receiving a silent hint from Cruel Sword. Sweetly, she said, "My party is planning to raid the Old Ruins, a high-level 10-man Team Dungeon, tomorrow. However, one of the original party members had applied for leave due to some personal matters. I'd really love it if you would join me. Will you??"
After a Team Dungeon was cleared, it would have a Cooldown period of three days. Hence, they needed to wait for three days before they could enter the Beastman Munition Factory again.
Standing to the side, Cruel Sword inwardly clapped his hands at Mu Qing's performance.
Relationships needed care and gentle nurturing. Although he could tell that Shi Feng had no particular interest in Mu Qing, with increased interactions, who was to say would happen in the future?
"I still have something that I need to do tomorrow. Let's find some other time to go Dungeon diving."
Shi Feng could naturally tell what Mu Qing was trying to do. However, he simply waved his hand and tactfully rejected her. Although the Old Ruins was a high-level Team Dungeon, there was nothing there that could rouse his interests. He would only waste time by going there. Now that he had changed into the four pieces of Wind Extinguisher Set Equipment, his Attributes had greatly increased once again. He should be able to attempt the continuation of the Epic Quest, Darkness Descends, now.
Mu Qing's innocent eyes flashed with a hint of disappointment. She did not think that her charm, which had only brought her success so far, would fail against Shi Feng.
Was she really lacking in charm, or were Shi Feng's defenses just too high?
Chapter 216 - Surpassing Imagination
Beastman Munition Factory.
"Boss, we've already team-wiped four times now and have lost 20% of our experience. If we are to continue to die, at this rate, we might not even be a high enough level to enter the Dungeon's entrance. Why don't we give up?"
"Alright, then. Everyone, get some rest. Afterwards, we'll head to a 10-man Dungeon to upgrade our equipment."
Lone Tyrant currently wore a gloomy expression on his face. They had tried all sorts of methods to raid the High Chieftain ranked Boss, Karur, yet, ultimately, they still failed due to a lack of damage. Before, he had even made a solemn vow to kill Karur. Now that he thought about it, he felt that his decision had been slightly rash. Fortunately, the players from the Assassin's Alliance had absolutely no chances of clearing the Dungeon. Otherwise, he would be utterly humiliated.
Just as the members of Dark Star were resting...
Suddenly, two system notifications relating to the Assassin's Alliance rang out beside everyone's ears.
In the beginning, the members of Dark Star thought that they had heard wrong. Hence, they quickly called up the announcement interface. The extraordinarily large and clear words proved them wrong. The Assassin's Alliance had indeed obtained the First Clear of the Hard Mode Beastman Munition Factory.
Immediately, the atmosphere surrounding the members of Dark Star sunk.
Why was there such a large difference between their two teams? Weren't they supposed to be stronger than the Assassin's Alliance?How could the Assassin's Alliance have already obtained the First Clear, while they were still stuck at the first Boss?
Lone Tyrant felt like he had just been given two tight slaps to his face when he looked at these notifications;his cheeks felt as if they were on fire.
He felt even worse when he recalled Shi Feng's words from before.If the nobodies that you've looked down on suddenly obtain the First Clear of the Hard Mode Beast Munition Factory a step ahead of you, then what would you all amount to?At this moment, those words were like sharp swords, continuously slashing at Lone Tyrant's pride.
Lone Tyrant truly never imagined that such a situation would occur.
However, Lone Tyrant was no fool. He did not believe the Assassin's Alliance had relied on only themselves to clear the Dungeon. The only possible way they could do so was with to Shi Feng's help.Just where did this mysterious person come from?In reality, Dark Star wasn't the only one to have been shocked by this piece of news. When the announcement spread throughout the entire White River City region, it had grabbed the attention of many other Guilds.The Assassin's Alliance's position in White River City was self-evident from the fact that their development speed had surpassed even that of a first-rate Guild. However, Dark Star's fame had recently suppressed Assassin's Alliance, adding to the fact that they had not produced any significant results from the Team Dungeons, their status in White River City had become slightly awkward.
Now that they had obtained the First Clear of the Beastman Munition Factory, their fame instantly soared. This allowed the Assassin's Alliance to regain their rightful reputation. From now on, their development speed would definitely be faster than before.
White River City's Adventurer's Association."Brother Zhang! Brother Zhang! The Assassin's Alliance has obtained the First Clear of the Hard Mode Beastman Munition Factory!" Ling Feilong suddenly rushed into Shadow's Guild Hall, announcing the news with a face filled with excitement.
In God's Domain, as long as Guilds registered themselves at the Adventurer's Association, they would be provided a free lounge for their own personal use in the various large cities. Guilds could carry out meetings and rest in this room, and they could also receive quests from the Adventurer's Association."Why are you shouting? Who doesn't know of this matter?" Zhou Yuhu, who was resting in the corner of the room, rolled his eyes at Ling Feilong.
"Of course, I know of this. However, there is another hidden truth to this matter." Ling Feilong shot a glance at Zhou Yuhu, before shifting his gaze towards the person sitting in the Guild Leader's seat, Zhang Luowei.
A hidden truth?
"Speak." Ling Feilong's words caused Zhang Luowei, who had previously been indifferent towards this matter, to grow interested.
Ling Feilong's previous report about his efforts to recruit Ye Feng had nearly caused Zhang Luowei to lash out in anger.
Shi Feng had actually demanded to become the Guild Leader of Shadow. Did Ye Feng even place him in his eyes?
Moreover, he had asked for 60% of the Guild's shares. What did he take them for?
Did he really think they were fools?
Meanwhile, the most shocking thing was that Ling Feilong had actually suggested that Zhang Luowei accept Shi Feng's conditions.
Hence, Zhang Luowei now looked down on Ling Feilong, resulting in Ling Feilong receiving cold treatment within the Guild."Brother Zhang, look at the Assassin's Alliance's First Clear name list! Ye Feng is among the names!" Ling Feilong called out his system interface, pointing at the Assassin's Alliance's First Clear name list as he spoke excitedly."So?" Zhou Yuhu laughed disdainfully. If they really allowed Ye Feng to join Shadow, he would no longer need to remain in the Guild."The Assassin's Alliance is a through and through second-rate Guild. They were clearly on an expedition to clear the Beastman Munition Factory, yet, why would they suddenly let an outsider join their team? Previously, for a long time, the Assassin's Alliance could not even obtain a single First Clear of a Level 10 Team Dungeon. However, they are now the first ones to obtain the First Clear of a 20-man Hard Mode Team Dungeon. Why is that?"This matter definitely has something to do with Ye Feng. Ye Feng's relationship with the Assassin's Alliance is anything but shallow. Originally, the Assassin's Alliance was only a normal second-rate Guild. However, after entering White River City, their development speed suddenly soared like crazy. They have even surpassed many first-rate Guilds. Again, why?"Ye Feng was the first person to enter White River City, and the White River City Guidebook is also selling like hotcakes now. There is a very high likelihood that Ye Feng sold the guidebook to the Assassin's Alliance in advance, allowing them to make ample preparations beforehand. Hence, after they entered White River City, they developed with flying speeds.
"Right now, Ye Feng has even helped the Assassin's Alliance obtain a First Clear. Regarding fame or background, the Assassin's Alliance now stands at the very top of White River City;they have even surpassed many first-rate Guilds. This is a clear proof of Ye Feng's capabilities. If Ye Feng joins Shadow, within a month, we can stand our own ground in White River City."Ling Feilong had made a thorough investigation of Ye Feng, and the more information he uncovered about Ye Feng, the more frightened he became. Ye Feng's accomplishments far surpassed his imagination. This was also the reason Ling Feilong became even more determined to hug a golden leg like Shi Feng.At that time, what would Zhang Luowei amount to?
What would Lan Hailong amount to?
"Don't even think about it! In the future, if you ever dare to mention Ye Feng's name to me again or tell Lan Hailong about this matter, you better be prepared for the consequences!" Zhang Luowei's countenance suddenly turned livid. With a tone filled with killing intent, he said, "Ye Feng is just a clown, jumping about on the stage. The Assassin's Alliance is an apex second-rate Guild with an immense background. Their Guild Leader, Cruel Sword, is even a long-established expert. He has personally nurtured the Assassin's Alliance to its current status, so it is not unusual for him to produce such results. To begin with, what sort of impact could that Ye Feng even have?"In my opinion, that Ye Feng would, at best, take on the role of a bystander."Being reprimanded by Zhang Luowei in such a way, Ling Feilong immediately revealed a fearful expression. Hurriedly nodding his head, he said, "Yes, I understand, Brother Zhang. I definitely won't mention this again in the future."Inwardly, however, Ling Feilong smiled brightly.He was even more assured of Ye Feng's might now. After all, if Zhang Luowei did not feel greatly threatened by Ye Feng, why would he be so angry at the mention this expert?In fact, Ling Feilong had long since told Lan Hailong about this matter, and Lan Hailong had instructed him to contact Shi Feng secretly once more.
Once he attained certain achievements in God's Domain, would he still be afraid of not being able to earn money?
With wealth, would he still need to be afraid that Zhao Ruoxi wouldn't welcome his embrace of her own volition? Her family might very well obediently hand her over to him.
Just as everyone discussed the Assassin's Alliance's First Clear, Shi Feng had already swapped out his old equipment for the four pieces of the Wind Extinguisher Set Equipment and had arrived at the Library of White River City.Compared to the dilapidated house used as a Library in Red Leaf Town, the Library at White River City was a true library. Not only did it possess a majestic atmosphere, but its appearance was also splendid and magnificent. It was like a Babylonian shrine, and it was situated right in the heart of the city.The people going through the entrance of the Library were mostly nobles of White River City and mage-class NPCs. There were even some who possessed Tier 2 classes. Hence, the Library was not a place where the common folk could simply visit.
Meanwhile, Sharlyn, the Tier 3 divine Official whom Shi Feng searched for, currently recuperated within this wealth of knowledge.
