Chapter 98 - Whetstone Recipe
After not meeting for just more than a day, s.h.i.+ Feng discovered that Gentle Snow and the others of her group had changed their equipment. All of them were wearing gorgeous equipment. The Level 5 Flame Light Set Equipment all of them were wearing was the best team equipment currently available.[a][b]
With this equipment, as long as the team leader commanded properly, they would definitely conquer the Normal Mode of Dark Moon Valley after familiarizing themselves with the Dungeon.
Regarding the Dark Moon Graveyard…
Even if s.h.i.+ Feng now possessed a full suit of Silvermoon Set Equipment, he still had quite a lot of requirements. For instance, the Advanced Whetstone Recipe. This was the strengthened version of the Whetstone. The Recipe for this item could only be obtained from Team Dungeons. Moreover, only Bosses of the Dungeon would have a chance of dropping it.
“You still remembered to come…
“That’s enough. Since you’re already here, leave your party, and we’ll reform the group.”
Zhao Yueru originally wanted to taunt s.h.i.+ Feng, but Gentle Snow stopped her a step earlier.
Gentle Snow was still slightly angry from before, but after sweeping a glance at s.h.i.+ Feng, she shockingly discovered that s.h.i.+ Feng had reached Level 6.
Currently, the Level 6 players in all of Red Leaf Town were top-tier players.
Previously, when she met s.h.i.+ Feng, his level was nothing special. It was just below average. Now that he was able to catch up to such a degree, one could see that s.h.i.+ Feng’s leveling speed was extremely fast. As for Blackie and the others standing behind s.h.i.+ Feng, all of them were Level 5. They were also fully geared with Bronze Equipment, and such a standard was relatively good amongst temporary teams.
s.h.i.+ Feng’s party then disbanded, all of them joining Gentle Snow’s team.
All of the surrounding Guilds and players saw s.h.i.+ Feng join Gentle Snow’s team. Judging from the equipment of s.h.i.+ Feng’s party, it was obvious that s.h.i.+ Feng and the others were not members of Ouroboros. However, it was extremely odd that they were still able to join Gentle Snow’s team and enter the Dungeon together.
The equipment worn by s.h.i.+ Feng’s party did not seem very high-leveled. They wore only scattered pieces of Bronze Equipment, not that different from the equipment of a temporary team.
This was the important struggle for the First Clear of a Team Dungeon. Was Gentle Snow so confident in being able to easily obtain it that she’d invite a group of people like this?
Only Stabbing Heart knew of s.h.i.+ Feng’s strength. Now that both powerhouses had joined, the compet.i.tion for the First Clear of the Dark Moon Graveyard had just become much harder.
“Brother Zhang, that’s the brat that set up our men,” Flaming Tiger hatefully commented when he saw s.h.i.+ Feng.
“So, it is him?” Zhang Luowei raised his brows. He could not help but pay more attention to s.h.i.+ Feng. He then said in a deep tone, “Since he has some connection with the Snow G.o.ddess, try not to stir up trouble with them in the future. I don’t wish for us to go against a first-rate Guild right now.”
Being able to wipe out Flaming Tiger’s group, and having a connection with the Snow G.o.ddess, this person was not that simple. He still needed to do some investigations of this person. If this person had just joined the Snow G.o.ddess by chance, he would definitely make this person pay for his actions.
“Yes, I understand, Brother Zhang.” Flaming Tiger glared at s.h.i.+ Feng, only gritting his teeth as he answered.
However, it was a different situation on the side of Martial Union.
Every member of Martial Union could not help but wish they could get rid of s.h.i.+ Feng right that instant. It was especially true for Ironsword Lion.
Previously, he put out the word that he would kill s.h.i.+ Feng back to Level 0. Now that he saw s.h.i.+ Feng had already reached Level 6, one level higher than Ironsword Lion, himself, he felt extremely humiliated.
“What is that group of a.s.sa.s.sins doing? They actually allowed him to wash away his Red Name, and even rise to Level 6.” Just the fact that s.h.i.+ Feng was standing in this place, unscathed, caused the light on Ironsword Lion’s face to fade. His face turned crimson from anger, saying, “Immediately contact the party of a.s.sa.s.sins. What exactly is going on here?”
“Boss, what’s up?” one of the a.s.sa.s.sins standing guard in front of the Hotel asked.
“What’s up?” Ironsword Lion nearly suffocated from anger when he heard those words. He bellowed, “I told you all to pay attention to Ye Feng, yet, what have you all been doing?”
“Boss, we’ve constantly been keeping an eye out for him. However, Ye Feng has not set foot outside the Hotel. I’m guessing that he must be afraid,” the a.s.sa.s.sin said, puzzled.
“You’ve constantly been keeping an eye out for him? Then you tell me; who is this person that I am looking at?” Ironsword Lion sent a screenshot, asking coldly.
“Impossible! We’ve really been constantly keeping an eye out for Ye Feng, and he never came out!” The a.s.sa.s.sin, immediately dumbfounded, looked at the screenshot.
“You’re a bunch of rubbish that can’t even keep watch over a single person! Get out of Martial Union immediately! I don’t wish to see you any longer!” rage completely flooded Ironsword Lion’s mind. Shortly after, he turned to glare at s.h.i.+ Feng, saying to his subordinate, “Call some men over, as many as you can. After they’re done with the Dungeon, I want him dead immediately.”
“Boss Ironsword, this wouldn’t be a good move, right? No matter how you put it, he still has some connection with the Snow G.o.ddess. If we create a bad relations.h.i.+p with Ouroboros, it would be detrimental to the development of our Guild,” a Druid said.
“Out in the streets, we live by depending on our reputation. Now that someone has stomped our reputation to the ground, who cares about anything else?” Ironsword Lion said in disdain, “So what if she’s the Snow G.o.ddess? She still hasn’t met this daddy right here. I don’t believe that a stupid s.k.a.n.k like her could do much to me. If she knows how to be tactful, I can still give her some face. If not, then I’ll kill her back to Level 0 as well.”
“Boss is right! G.o.d’s Domain just has slightly more players. How prestigious was it during those years that we swept across Martial World? Now, we can also sweep across G.o.d’s Domain just like before. What should we be afraid of?”
The players that had constantly followed Ironsword Lion all voiced out their agreements, all of them releasing the aura of a mad dog from their bodies.
In their opinion, one had to be fierce when playing virtual reality games. Compared to Wuxia games, G.o.d’s Domain merely had more players. Moreover, they had to take into consideration so many problems every single day. What good was worrying about each and every little thing? Won’t everything be solved if they just killed these first-rate Guilds into submission? They had only depended on being fierce to succeed in the previous Wuxia game they played, and it would be the same in G.o.d’s Domain.
Only the Druid, who had only recently joined, helplessly shook his head.
These people were insane!
s.h.i.+ Feng did not notice the movements of Martial Union. He only discussed the matter of cooperation with Gentle Snow.
“The items dropped from the Dungeon will be distributed according to Job requirements. If both sides require the same equipment, then there should be no problem if we just Roll for it, right?”
“We don’t have any problems with the distribution of equipment. However, I want priority over the recipes and materials for Lifestyle Jobs.” s.h.i.+ Feng’s goal in coming here was the Advanced Whetstone Recipe, while equipment didn’t really matter to him.
“You! Don’t forget that we are the ones who will be carrying you through the Dungeon! Moreover, do you know how valuable the recipes for Lifestyle Jobs are?” After hearing s.h.i.+ Feng’s words, Zhao Yueru stamped her feet in anger, bellowing like a fierce tigress.
The other members of Gentle Snow’s team were also feeling aggrieved. s.h.i.+ Feng and his party were just a group of wild players. They were already extremely benevolent by Rolling to distribute the equipment. Despite that fact, s.h.i.+ Feng was still trying to take advantage of them.
“Brother Feng, your request is going slightly overboard. In any case, our equipment is slightly weaker than theirs, and even just clearing the Dungeon would be a problem for us. So why don’t you change your requirements?” Blackie advised.
Although their equipment was very good, compared to the Set Equipment of these people, they were clearly still a step behind. Being able to Roll for equipment was already a good condition. Going further to compete over recipes for Lifestyle Jobs… n.o.body would be willing to concede to such a request.
To put it bluntly, even without them joining, Gentle Snow’s team could similarly clear the Dark Moon Graveyard.
s.h.i.+ Feng shook his head. He would not mind if it were any other recipes. However, he would not concede even a single step for the Advanced Whetstone Recipe. He also could not reveal any specifics to avoid attracting the suspicion of others. After all, before a Team Dungeon was conquered, the Official Website would not reveal any information about its drops.
Twenty-man Dungeons would only refresh once every three days. There were only that many Team Dungeons nearby, and every one of them was extremely precious. The earlier s.h.i.+ Feng obtained the Advanced Whetstone Recipe, the earlier he would obtain an advantage over the other players. To a Workshop like theirs that lived on the edge, they had even more reasons not to concede.
Gentle Snow, who had an ice-cold expression, also opened up her mouth this time around, saying, “Recipes for Lifestyle Jobs are extremely important to our Guild. Your request, I cannot agree to it.”
 wild players: players that are unaffiliated to any Guilds.
[a]From the last chapter, I honestly had the impression that only Gentle Snow possessed this Set Equipment... as for "team equipment", that's what the author wrote. I refuse to capitalize it though... Sooner or later, he's gonna bring some s.h.i.+t like Guild equipment or party equipment...
