Chapter 188 Buy, Buy, Buy (Part II)
What appeared before Fang Xingjian and Ferdinand was a pitch-black, streamlined longsword. It had many weird holes and imprints.
The boss then introduced, “Putting aside the sword body of this Demoness’ Howl, it is a high quality item, a level 9 Empire’s Divine Weapon.
“And the most unique part of it lies in the one hundred and twenty-three wind prints on its body. As long as the sword is swung quickly, slicing through the air, it can create a sound like the howl of a demoness. It can cause your opponent to feel irritated and even possibly angered.”
With the slash of the longsword, a muffled cry sounded out, as if a female ghost were crying.
Hearing this voice, the boss, Ferdinand and even the twelve guards all furrowed their brows, a feeling of annoyance growing in their heart.
However, Fang Xingjian was expressionless. His willpower could allow him to easily overcome sound attacks of such level. He merely looked at the longsword and nodded, saying, “How much?”
The boss’ face broke into a smile and said, “A fixed price, five hundred gold.”
Fang Xingjian signalled to Ferdinand and said, “I’ll take it.”
Leaving the shop with the level 9 Empire’s Divine Weapon, Demoness’ Howl, Ferdinand said helplessly, “You should at least have bargained a little.”
“No time,” Fang Xingjian shook his head and said, “Are there any medicinal ointments or foods that can directly increase one’s attributes, or even increase one’s potential?”
Ferdinand grinned and said, “Of course, but they are all extremely pricey. For most of them, you’re better off training yourself, rather than paying for them.”
“Bring me there to take a look.”
Before a shop filled with the smell of medicine, a white-haired old granny with a wrinkled face grinned, revealing two rows of yellow teeth. She pointed to the medicine bottle in her hand and said, “Spider Medicine, a secret medicine made from the bones of a Wind Bird, the eyes of a Mountain Hawk, and fifty-six types of ferocious beasts. It can, at max, increase a person’s reaction attribute by three points.”
“Is there any use in eating it repeatedly?”
“Of course not.”
“Three thousand gold!”
Fang Xingjian nodded, “I’ll take it.”
“Wait a minute…” Ferdinand was just about to speak but ended up just supporting his forehead with his hand helplessly. He reluctantly handed the security slips to the old granny.
Entering a place was covered with flowers, plants and trees, which made the underground passageway appeared to be like a forest, a young lady, wearing a head cloth and carrying a puppy, looked at Fang Xingjian in a daze.
After hearing his question, she pointed to a medicinal herb exuding a faint green glow and said, “Heart Connecting Herb. Each strand of it can stimulate one’s potential. However, it is poisonous, and a person can only take at most ten strands of it everyday to increase his or her potential by one 1000 points.”
Fang Xingjian asked, “Can the poison be nullified by Netherworld Valley’s antidote?”
The dazed-looking young lady carrying the puppy thought about it before nodding and saying, “It should be able to, but even so, there won’t be any effect after one hundred strands. It’s because by then, the body would have gotten accustomed and developed antibodies toward it.”
“How much is one hundred strands?”
“One thousand gold.”
“Give me one hundred strands.”
Ferdinand sighed deeply as he took out five security slips with an aching heart. He felt that each time he paid the money, his kidneys were being pierced.
“Ferdinand, let’s get going.” Fang Xingjian grabbed a bunch of Heart Connecting Herbs and starting munching on them. Then, he took the antidote he had carried with him.
Ever since he was poisoned, he had gotten into the habit of bringing along some antidote with him, drinking it as if he was drinking water.
Ferdinand, with his heart aching, said, “This is hard earned money made from sweat and blood. How could you spend it all so easily?”
Fang Xingjian replied, “I didn’t spend it easily. These are all things I need.”
He said to Ferdinand, “Remember, money is just ordinary chunks of steel if you keep them. Its worth is only shown through spending it on meaningful items.”
Although Ferdinand felt pained, when he heard Fang Xingjian’s words, he felt that it did make some sense.
The place was filled with metal cages holding various ferocious beasts, including light-emitting rabbits, large two-headed wolves, and white tigers with wings. It was something like a pet shop.
Fang Xingjian looked at the sexy boss lady who had tattoos all over and was wearing a beast hide, asking, “If I want to level up, which ferocious beast would let me level up the fastest?”
The boss lady smiled and pointed to a cage filled with rats covered in pitch-black fur that looked like steel and said, “These are Guard Hair Rats. If you want to kill to level up, they are the most economical. It’s one gold for one hundred of them. There are as many as you need.”
There was basically no value to these rats; their only value was that their ability to reproduce was many times stronger than ordinary rats.
But it was also because of this that it was an attractive yet inexpensive good. It became a ferocious beast that a countless number of people bought to kill in order to gain experience and level up.
Fang Xingjian nodded, “Then I’ll get this.”
In a general store with swords, blades, armors, drugs, small-scaled ferocious beasts, and many other miscellaneous items.
A short man smiled and looked at Fang Xingjian, asking, “Sir, may I know what you’re looking for?”
Fang Xingjian asked, “Do you have anything that can fill your stomach, replenish vital energy and blood, and is easy to carry about?”
“Yes, of course.” The short boss went back in and shouted, “Please wait here.”
Not long later, he took out a small sack with three purple-colored medicinal pills and said, “We went through great efforts to smuggle this over from Uranlis. It’s something the Mages over there made.”
Fang Xingjian grabbed one of the medicinal pill about the size of a fingernail and asked, “What is this?”
“The people there call them Magic Beans. They’re made from condensing the essence of more than ten types of ferocious beasts are also said to have been incorporated with a Mage’s magic. If an ordinary person were to take one of this, he can go without eating for ten days. Even if it’s taken by martial arts practitioners like yourself, it’ll be sufficient to replenish your energy depletion for the day.”
It was naturally not enough for Fang Xingjian to eat only one per day. However, he still smiled and asked, “How much is this thing?”
Ferdinand finally could not hold it in anymore and asked, “Xingjian, you’re not joining the military, why do you need this?”
Fang Xingjian paid him no heed and asked, “How are you selling this?”
“These are smuggled goods and we don’t have much in stock, but since you look so sincere, I’ll sell it to you at a cheaper price.” The short boss said, “Three gold for one.”
Fang Xingjian nodded, “Give me three hundred.”
Ferdinand looked toward Fang Xingjian grievingly, but still ended up handing over the security slips when the latter urged him.
Just like this, the two of them spent six hours, and Ferdinand did not have much left of the ten thousand gold he had brought with him.
Fang Xingjian also finally got to appreciate the feeling of how the rich cultivated. It was extremely convenient.
Now, he had a longsword – Demoness’ Howl. He also had three hundred Magic Beans for rations. As for the rest of the money, he had spent it on various items and took them on the spot or just killed the Guard Hair Rats to gain experience to level up.
His level had finally reached level 19, the highest level in the first transition. Moreover, with the progress he had attained from his recent period of cultivation, including the leveling up of his Waves a few days ago after cultivating for twenty-four hour a day, his attributes had now become:Name Fang Xingjian Age 17 Occupation Windshadow Sword Divinity Level 19 Strength 57+5 Agility 191+5 Reaction 68 Endurance 50 Flexibility 52 The attributes above come into effect once the Sonido Sword Zephyr Waves is activated. Due to Perfect Muscles, +5 in strength and agility (10% of the endurance attribute). Nurturing Sword Techniques 94 sets Training Sword Techniques 12 sets Supreme Mistwind Sword Level 30 Radiant Light Sword Technique Level 18 Ether Divine Art Level 1 Specialties: Genius Swordsmanship, Elementary Survival Instinct, Internal Healing, Internal Training, Sword Specialist, High Agility Motion Vision, Heightened Reflexes, Perfect Muscles, Elementary Berserkness, Unparalleled Sword Intent (95/100) Potential 11,000 point increase/day Waves Level 6 Sonido Sword Zephyr Waves Mental Cultivation Method Level 3 Universal Sword Dominance Lunisolar
With that, Fang Xingjian had powered up once again.When his agility attribute of 196 points completely burst forth, he could already surpass the speed of sound by ten times.
In addition, the Unparalleled Sword Intent would also go through a change after he reached the maximum level in five more sets of sword techniques. He was also two levels away from getting another special effect from the Radiant Light Sword Technique. Therefore, after returning to the academy, he planned to kill his way to the Tresia Clan after leveling up his Unparalleled Sword Intent and Radiant Light Sword Technique. No matter who tries to stop him, he must chop off Kaunitz’s head.
