Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 277: Exchange, Glorious Grade (II)
Han Yu said, “I bought a shield at the Glorious Tier, called Absolute Reflection, able to launch a three-layered light elemental shield. Its defensive power even surpasses Divine Obstruction, and enables the user to deflect the magic shot at it. I haven’t bought anything else aside from this. I spent a total of 11,000 contribution points”
Now came Sima Xian’s turn, “Boss, I may have bought a bit too much, please don’t blame me! You were right, I cannot keep on wearing the magical robe of a priest, so I bought an armor to cover the upper half of my body. It is called Holy Power, and can increase my external spiritual energy by a thousand while possessing a Prolonging ability, which can extend the duration of all physical abilities. This is very helpful for my Madness mode. And I changed my weapon, take a look. This new weapon almost took up the whole space of my storage ring, hehe. ”
As he said this, he smiled very satisfied. With a golden flash on his hand, an intense light broke out in the surrounding, and a massive object appeared in his hands.
This item was truly extreme. Looking at him, even Long Haochen’s eyes were wide open, as he murmured, “This is too violent!”
Sima Xian replied with a laugh, “Boss, I am walking on the path of violence! With my external spiritual energy being naturally greater than that of ordinary people, and further adding this Holy Power that increases my external energy by a thousand, not using this kind of weapon would be a shame.”
The weapon in his hand was indeed particular. Simply said, it was an enormous metallic ball.
This item didn’t have any gaudy aspect, having a diameter of one meter. This elemental ball was extremely glossy, distributing concentrated fluctuations of light. Even with a physique such as Sima Xian’s, carrying it was visibly strenuous. Although he didn’t know which material this was made off, it should at least weigh five hundred kilograms.
Sima Xian proudly introduced his new partner, “This weapon is called Energetic Light Ball, and to be frank, my luck was pretty good. Because no one needed this item, I got it for a low cost, only spending 16,000 contribution points for it. In fact, it is plated with a layer of refined gold, and reaches the absolute peak of equipment at the Glorious Tier. Other pieces of equipment of this level would cost at least 30,000 contribution points. My Energetic Light Ball carries a supplementary ability called Crush. It’s just that I haven’t tried out this ability yet, but the Energetic Light Ball’s core is said to be the magical crystal of a magical beast of the seventh step. I bought it from the officials at the Transaction Center, and have been told there that if this magical crystal was exchanged for one at the eighth step, this Energetic Light Ball would immediately reach the realm of Legendary Equipment. If enough refined gold is added to it, it would be even possible to have it reach the peak of the Legendary Tier.”
Carefully glancing at this enormous golden ball, they discovered that on the outside it had a grip and a golden over ten meters long chain, which looked as thick as Sima Xian’s arm.
Long Haochen couldn’t help but ask, “Is this the enlarged version of a Meteor Hammer?”
Sima Xian said with a smile, “Pretty much. I thought this chain was shorter, but my current strength is at least sufficient. After my cultivation improves, I will definitely be able to exploit this thing’s power even better. Right when I saw this, I immediately fell in deep love and decided that this will become my lifelong equipment, that I will try to upgrade along with my strength in the future.”
On the side, Han Yu patted on his own forehead, “Sima, whenever we meet other people never tell anyone that you are from the Priest Temple, otherwise, they will surely mock you. And better never bring this thing with you when you go to the Priest Temple to study new magic.”
Sima Xian snorted, “I never made the Priest Temple lose face, what should I be afraid of? Maybe in the future, the Priest Temple will consider me as its pride.” Saying this, he tossed down the golden ball in his hand. Although it was only at a distance of a third of a meter from the ground, when coming in contact with it, it left cracks on the floor below.
Long Haochen asked, “And that’s it? Is that all for the equipment you bought for yourselves?”
“Right, that’s all for our own equipment.” The other five replied in unison.
Long Haochen gave a puzzled reply, “This can’t be! Although this increased the strength of each of you, it doesn’t even make a total of 100,000 contribution points. Didn’t we have 160,000 contribution points left to spend? And with the considerable amount of pills Lin Xin sold, shouldn’t there be a large excess of contribution points? Keeping too many contribution points is useless, we’d better exchange them to increase our military strength.”
The five of them mysteriously looked at each other, brimming with large smiles.
Lin Xin proudly replied, “Boss, we knew you’d say this. Of course, we know that there would be no use in keeping too many contribution points. What we introduced was the equipment we bought for ourselves, but we have yet to speak about what we bought for you.”
“Me?” Long Haochen started, revealing a pouting smile to the others, “You…”
Han Yu was the first to reply, “Captain, we all saw you hang around in the Transaction Center; you have only been spending contribution points to buy two pieces of equipment for our vice-captain, but what about yourself? We understand that you hope to save contribution points to be used by us, but have you thought of your position as the team’s core, its cornerstone at all? Having your strength increase is the best way to ensure our team’s safety in times of battle. This is not selfishness but a necessity. Thus, we took the initiative to buy three pieces of equipment for you.”
Saying this, Han Yu’s hand glinted golden, and an odd heavy sword appeared in Long Haochen’s hand.
This heavy sword was similar to the Holy Spirit Sword in length, about a meter and a third, but was a bit wider than the former. On the main part were two groups of four engravings, extending to the handle, and in those, a dragon-shaped pattern was embedded. It didn’t have any gem inlaid inside, but when this heavy sword was drawn, the air in the whole villa seemed to be completely shaken. A dense killing intent radiated from it. Surely, a body pierced with such a huge bloodthirst would be bound to die from its effect?
Han Yu said in a serious tone, “This sword is called Bright Discipline and costed 16,000 contribution points. Like Sima’s Energetic Ball of Light, it was underpriced, because the requirements for its use are very particular, so ordinary people don’t have the capability to use it. It requires the user to be of the light attribute, and his innate internal spiritual energy to exceed seventy.
It is said that this Bright Discipline was handed down from a powerful Retribution Knight, but collected dust for a long time in the Transaction Center. After all, knights whose innate internal spiritual energy is over seventy are just too rare. It is able to launch Instant Holy Sword: though the consumption of spiritual energy will be the same as with normal swords, it will break out instantly. It also carries the Soul Absorption ability. It will return ten units of spiritual energy after it was turned into holy spiritual energy back to the user whenever an enemy is hit.”
“A good sword.” Long Haochen blurted out almost unconsciously. Perhaps this Bright Discipline couldn’t compare with Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light, but it was of high quality, and the two abilities it carried were really practical. Instant Holy Sword, although with the same consumption, enabled him to use a fighting ability of the fifth step to be used instantly. This would be as useful as one may imagine on the battlefield. As for that Soul Absorption ability, it seemed to be fitting crowd battles, especially while fighting lower ranked demons. Killing one enabled the user to absorb ten units of spiritual energy, and when confronting Dual Bladed Demons, it was possible for Long Haochen to reach a dozen of those enemies with a single Demon Wiping Flash or regular Lightning Thrust! This would undoubtedly raise their ability to last on the battlefield. 16,000 contribution was a really cheap price for such a treasure.
Han Yu revealed a smile, “When Captain finds an even better weapon, this sword can be passed to me to use it, so it is killing two birds with one stone.”
Long Haochen was about to thank them, when Wang Yuanyuan’s hand also flashed with light, and a 0.6 meter long shield appeared in her hands.
“This is the Holy Radiant Shield, possessing the Holy Shield ability. Although it has only a single ability, Holy Radiant Shield’s ability is of the sixth step and perfect for Guardian Knights like you. Just like Bright Discipline, Holy Shield will need to consume spiritual energy to activate instantly. Its consumption is rather high, needing 300 units of spiritual energy for one use, but it lasts for ten minutes.”
Lin Xin extended his right hand, and a brilliance appeared once again extending on the floor in front of him. Along with a helmet, an entire armor appeared in front of Long Haochen.
This armor was entirely dark golden in color, decorated with simple designs. Although it was eye-catching, this armor already possessed a majestic look when left on the ground by itself.
“The Brilliant Holy Armor forms a set of two items along with the former shield, enabling one to use the Guardian Knight ability Holy Spirit Guard, which is of the sixth step. Like for the other two pieces of equipment, it will be instantly launched, consuming 300 units every time. Those two come as a set, and give you a set bonus called Brilliant Command when used together, reducing the consumption of spiritual energy of those two pieces of equipment by a third, while raising its efficiency by a third.”
A high quality item! These three items of the Glorious Tier could be described as equipment of the highest quality. This Glorious Set carried defensive abilities of the sixth step, making it a first rate item even when used by a Radiant Knight of the sixth step. And there was this practical set bonus. After receiving those three pieces of equipment, Long Haochen was now armed to the teeth. When acting as a defensive knight, his defensive power would reach completely new bounds, making it so that even without having broken through yet, he could already be regarded as a Guardian Knight of the Radiant Knight level.
“You…” Long Haochen’s gaze was warm; regardless of how talented he and how good his self-control was, he was still just a fifteen year-old youth. Facing his teammates that were so thoughtful of him, how could he not be moved?
Wang Yuanyuan was the first to react, “Captain, there’s no need for words of politeness between us. We are comrades from the same team, whose core is you. Without you, we couldn’t even have made it back alive from the demon territory. Your strength is our team’s strength. Raising your strength will give us the best chances of survival when confronting powerful enemies.”
