The Legend Of The Dragon King - Chapter 505
Tang Wulin knew all the basics of making a mecha . However, he did not have to do this himself, and only had to forge the spirit alloys . The materials of the mecha and the core circuits are the most expensive parts, followed by the actual building of a mecha .
Elder Feng's words seem to open an entirely big new door for Tang Wulin .
"The academy has a dedicated Mecha Association . You can provide the materials yourself and have them build it for you but it won't be cheap so you better think about it carefully . I think it'll better for you to build a mecha instead of buying a car . As long as you are registered with the federation, you'll be able to drive the mecha throughout the continent . Of course, you'll be expending more energy compared to driving a car, but it won't be the same,"Elder Feng said to Tang Wulin with a tempting tone .
He was right! How could driving a car be compared to piloting a mecha? It was a mecha! If he could own his own mecha . . . Tang Wulin's heart began to heat up .
"Here, this is the quotation from the Mecha Association . Have a look . "As he said this, Feng Wuyu passed an electronic quotation to Tang Wulin .
It only took a glance and Tang Wulin's lips had already started twitching .
He initially thought that he had already become a rich student after earning one million and six hundred thousand contribution points earlier . However, when he saw the quotation, he felt like he was destitute .
Yellow Mechas — 1,000,000 contribution points .
Purple Mechas — 9,000,000 contribution points .
Black Mechas — With self-provided materials, exclusive design and exclusive forging services, 30,000,000 contribution points .
This . . .
No wonder Liu An mocked him for being poor . This was daylight robbery!
Tang Wulin gulped and turned around to look at Elder Feng . "Teacher, I think it's more practical for me to buy a car . . . This is too expensive!"
Feng Wuyu replied, "If you provide the materials, it'll be much cheaper . However, you'll have to go and get the details from the Mecha Association . I'm only informing you that this is possible and can be done . It's up to you if want to do it or not . If you want to earn more contribution points, then work hard and forge more . When you're a true rank-6 blacksmith, it won't be a problem for you to earn enough to make a purple mecha . Generally, a purple mecha would suffice . Even a yellow mecha is much faster than a soul car . You can own it even now!"
Tang Wulin was shocked, his thoughts shooting through his head like lightning . 'He was right!'The thing he needed the most right now was only a means of transportation . An exceptionally powerful mecha was of no use to him anyway since he had no intentions to take them out to battle with them .
More importantly, he would also be able to use it to practice his fighting and maneuvering skills aside from owning a means of transport if he owned a mecha . For those purposes, a yellow mecha would suffice .
Tang Wulin glanced at the one million and six hundred thousand contribution points on his card and gritted his teeth . He had already made his decision .
Shrek Academy — Mecha Masters'Association .
Zhang Yang sat lazily behind the counter . The Mecha Association was always deserted . As a fifth grader, he only took this job for the meager contribution points he would get as his salary .
He was already twenty-six years ol, and his soul power was was at rank-51 . However, he had yet to assemble his one-word battle armor since he was short of a few crucial components .
It was impossible for him to enter the inner court now but he was still confident that he could graduate from the outer court .
Compared to when he had just enrolled, he was no longer as tense as he was back then . He would be content just from being able to complete his one-word battle armor and become a one-word battle armor master before graduating from the outer court .
Shrek Academy had always been like this . The most stressful period was the first nine years where one would go through the first three grades . In other words, If one did not manage to become a one-word battle armor master before one turned twenty, one could relax instead . There were nine more years for one to achieve that goal and graduate .
Eventually finishing the one-word battle armor and graduating from the academy was not a difficult feat for the students who had endured the first three grades and managed not to get expelled .
Zhang Yang's had a state of mind that was exactly like this . He was content as long as he could graduate since he was already hired by a top company to work as a security director . What he needed to do now was to finish his one-word battle armor as soon as possible and wait for his graduation .
However, after all the time he spent here in Shrek Academy, he had grown fond of this place . Once he leaves this place, he would not have the chance to return here to cultivate as an outer disciple . That was why he was willing to take it slow . He wanted to enjoy life in the academy for a few more years .
He was only short of the final two components and had already finished the basic frame . 'I don't want to graduate just yet!'Zhang Yang silently exclaimed in his heart .
However, he was no longer the young man he once was . Twenty-six was an age where one had to build a family a family and establish one's career .
He had already decided that he would finish the battle armor in three months . Whenever he thought about leaving, a feeling of reluctance would fill Zhang Yang's heart .
"Ding dong!"the doorbell rang, and a youth walked in from .
"Hello senior,"the youth had big eyes and was beautiful . Even if he was of the same gender, Zhang Yang's eyes still lit up .
"Hello junior, how may I help you? Do you want to join our Mecha Association?"Zhang Yang was only asking this as a matter of routine . In reality, the Mecha Association was the least popular association in Shrek Academy . This because the students who came here all only had their eyes set on becoming a battle armor master . The way Zhang Yang saw it, the reason why the Mecha Association was still around was only because the academy wanted to preserve every association . There were only about twenty members who were still inside the academy .
As expected, the youth shook his head, expressing that he did not come to join the association . It was expected! Who would ever join the Mecha Association? Only students who were truly passionate about mechas since they were children would join this association after they entered the academy .
"Senior, I'd like to have one yellow mecha custom-made . "The words that left the youth's mouth shocked Zhang Yang .
"What did you say?"Zhang Yang asked with some incredulity .
"I'd like to have one yellow mecha custom-made,"Tang Wulin repeated himself .
"Junior, do you know how much contribution points a yellow mecha costs? It's one million, not a hundred thousand y'know?"He had been in the academy for more than a decade now and still he had not accumulated a million contribution points . Moreover, a yellow mecha meant nothing to the students of Shrek Academy .
"I'm certain . I have enough contribution points enough contribution points . "Tang Wulin fished out his student ID card and handed it over to Zhang Yang .
When Zhang Yang saw one million and six hundred thousand on the ID, he could not help but swallow a mouthful of his saliva . That was a lot of contribution points! He had an urge to ask this junior if he had robbed the academy's office .
Of course, that was obviously impossible .
"Alright, first, let's get you registered . Then, I'll have to take some measurements,"A mecha must be made to fit the mecha master's body snugly . That way, the user would be able to have the best control over the mecha .
"I want a long-ranged mecha . The armor can be thinner to save on resources . The energy core should be more powerful and . . . its cruising ability should be good . . . "Tang Wulin spouted out a long list of his requirements .
Zhang Yang was a mecha enthusiast himself, and that was why he was able to work here . However, he could not help but frown after listening to Tang Wulin's demands . "Junior, you have to know that if we went ahead with your requirements, we'd call your mecha a fragile mecha . There aren't close combat weapons like sabers or swords equipped on a long-ranged mecha, and yet you want the armor to be thin? If you do it this way, your enhanced energy core will very easily explode if you take a hit . That's very dangerous . "
Tang Wulin replied, "It's alright, that's what I want . Oh, by the way, senior . If I were to supply all the rare alloys needed to make the mecha, how much of a discount can I get?"
Zhang Yang thought for a moment and said, "If you're supplying the materials yourself, you'll only have to pay four hundred and eighty thousand contribution points . However, there has to be some kind of guarantee on the quality of your rare alloys . "
"No problem! I'll supply the rare alloys myself then . "
