Chapter 178: God’s gift
Server Honour Ranking:
First Place: Chinese Server
Honor Points: 100
Honor Details: On June 17th, 2210, the Chinese Server’s player Tian Xie completed the mercenary system quest, “The Mercenary King’s Relic”. The Chinese Server has become the first server in the world to have opened the mercenary system.
Opening the Server Honour Ranking, the Chinese Server’s name was proudly hanging by itself at the top. There was nothing but emptiness below it. There was no second place, third place, or fourth place……There was just China.
As long as one opened the Server Honour Ranking, they would see just the name China. As well, in the details, they would see the name “Xie Tian”!
From this day forward, not a single person in the world would forget the name Xie Tian.
To the Chinese players, they were all filled with shock over China being the first to enter the Server Honour Ranking. When every player of the world opened the Server Honour Ranking, they would see China being on top……This was a matter that filled them with pride.
As for the name Xie Tian, it would be considered a mysterious, strong, and glorious name in the hearts of every Chinese player. It didn’t matter what he did or what his goal was, it was all because he had……brought glory to the Chinese Server and attracted the attention of the world.
“Second brother succeeded!” On the Heavenly Stellar City north street, Zuo Po Jun was clenching his fist as he looked into the sky, while speaking in an excited voice.
“Oh! This is actually a very normal thing, isn’t it? My beloved third brother,” Murong Qiu Shui said with pursed lips. Underneath his calm appearance, the sparkle in his eyes showed that he was actually filled with excitement deep down and was not as calm as he appeared to be.
Their glory was shared, that was the excitement they felt at this moment.
While the Chinese players were filled with excitement another system notification sounded out. This was a notification that stunned everyone. It was about Ye Tian Xie’s extra reward, the Mercenary King’s Glory Badge.
“Ding……The Mercenary King’s Glory Badge.
Stats: Strength +5%, Vitality +5%, Agility +5%, and Intelligence +5%.
With this badge, one can form the ‘Heavenly Soul mercenary group’. After the Heavenly Soul mercenary group is formed, the creator will gain 2 levels along with an extra 30% gold and experience reward increase when completing mercenary missions. Other than the leader, other players that enter the Heavenly Soul mercenary group will receive the blessings of the original Heavenly Soul members. Warriors will gain the Battle Soul’s Blessings which increases their Strength and HP by 5%. Knights will gain the Immoveable Soul’s Blessings which increases their HP and Vitality by 5%. Archers will receive the Bow Soul’s Blessings which increases their Move Speed and Agility by 5%. Assassins will receive the Shadow Soul’s Blessings which increases their Attack and Agility by 5%. Magicians will receive the Four Mage Souls’ Blessings which increase their Intelligence and MP by 5%. Summoners will receive the Summon Soul’s Blessings which increases the stats of their summons by 5%.”
When the system notification ended, Zuo Po Jun and Murong Qiu Shui looked at each other before saying the same thing…..
Zuo Po Jun quickly lifted his wrist and shouted into the communication device, “Second brother! Come back quickly! I want to join the Heavenly Soul mercenary group, I want to join the Heavenly Soul mercenary group!”
They had never heard of a mercenary group that increased the stats of its members. Yet, this Heavenly Soul mercenary group, no matter what Job a person was, they would experience a stat increase if they joined this group. Moreover, it was two different stats that were increased by 5%!! For a 5% increase in one’s main stats, how many levels and pieces of good equipment would this be equal to!!
It wasn’t just Zuo Po Jun alone who was excited. When the system for some unknown reason showed the stats of the Mercenary King’s Glory Badge to the world, it was like dropping down a huge bomb. Those excited players were once again thrown into a frenzy as if the Chinese Server itself would explode.
As long as one entered the Heavenly Soul mercenary group, their main stats would be increased by 5%! God damn! How could a normal person live with this…..How could any other mercenary groups compete with this.
It could be imagined that after this news was released, it was unknown how many people tried their best to find Xie Tian with the intention of joining the Heavenly Soul mercenary group, spending all kinds of giant prices. The system had clearly stated that as long as one joins the Heavenly Stellar mercenary group, without any special conditions and no matter where, they would receive a stat increase. Only if they left or were kicked out of the group, then the stat increase would be permanent.
If Ye Tian Xie created a stall in the city with the sign “one million to join”, then all the rich people who had come from a terrifying length would still try to join.
“Ding…..The player you have called is on a special map, so there is no connection.”
Zuo Po Jun: “……”
Putting down the communication device, Zuo Po Jun excitedly said, “Old fourth, do you think second brother will let us join the Heavenly Soul mercenary group?”
Murong Qiu Shui looked at him like he was looking at an idiot, “Please do not use your idiotic question to insult my high intelligence. My beloved second brother will always shine his glorious light down on us…..Oh!! Why, why am I not a real woman, why…..”
Zuo Po Jun’s body was covered in sweat as he almost shuddered from the chill he felt. He quickly looked around himself…..It was a good thing there was no one around…..otherwise they would have looked at them like they were crazy.
Heavenly Soul Tomb.
Holding the golden badge in his hands, he listened to the system prompt that sounded out without his consent. Ye Tian Xie was completely speechless…..With this notification being sent out, there would be countless people going all out trying to find him…..Just to join the Heavenly Soul mercenary group.
Ye Tian Xie began to suspect that this was a prank the system was playing on him…..because there was on clear detail that was not mentioned. On the Mercenary King’s Glory Badge’s stats and details, it was clearly written that including the leader, the Heavenly Soul mercenary group cannot exceed more than thirteen people.
No more than thirteen people.
At the same time, the other strong stat of the Mercenary King’s Glory Badge was not announced.
Mercenary King’s Glory Badge: Sealed within this badge is a portion of the dead Heavenly Soul mercenary group members’ soul and will. Receiving this badge means the user has obtained the acknowledgement of the the Mercenary King Ren Zhan Qing. After establishing the ‘Heavenly Soul mercenary group’, the creator will gain 2 levels and receive an extra 30% gold and experience when completing mercenary missions. Other than the leader, the other players that enter the Heavenly Soul mercenary group will receive the blessings of the original Heavenly Soul members. Warriors will gain Battle Soul’s Blessings which increases their Strength and HP by 5%. Knights will gain Immoveable Soul’s Blessings which increases their HP and Vitality by 5%. Archers will receive Bow Soul’s Blessings which increases their Move Speed and Agility by 5%. Assassins will receive Shadow Soul’s Blessings which increases their Attack and Agility by 5%. Magicians will receive the Four Mage Souls’ Blessings which increase their Intelligence and MP by 5%. Summoners will receive Summon Soul’s Blessings which increases the stats of their summons by 5%.”
Additional Stats: After equipping, the user will gain +5% Strength, +5% Vitality, +5% Agility, and +5% Intelligence.
Mercenary King’s Glory: Releases the power and faith of soul sealed within to revive all the dead members of the Heavenly Soul mercenary group on the current map. They will have full HP after being revived. This can only be used once every seven days.
Master Locked: Xie Tian
Cannot be traded, sold, or stolen.
The Mercenary King’s Glory Badge unexpectedly also included a shocking resurrection skill that was a group resurrection and healing skill. Even the final Priest Job Change, the Divine Sacred Lord did not have this kind of skill at all. Although the cooldown was once every seven days, it still could not restrict how strong it was.
“Ding……” Another prompt rang out in Ye Tian Xie’s ears, “Because you have completed the “Mercenary King’s Relic” hidden branch, you have obtained an extra reward – The Heavenly Grade Scroll, God’s Gift.”
An ash white scroll came from the sky and slowly fell into Ye Tian Xie’s hands……A Heavenly Grade Scroll, he began to hear the sound of his heart beating.
God’s Gift: Heavenly Grade Scroll
A scroll created with the blessing of the world’s gods. It’s said that with the grace of god’s blessings, one can have an additional Jobs.
Having an additional Job!?
This was a strong and unbelievable stat. Ye Tian Xie hands tightened as if he couldn’t believe that this kind of strong stat existed.
If a single person could have two Jobs, what would that mean?
It meant that a Warrior could have the Assassin’s high speed and concealing techniques, or an Archer would be able immediately use a close combat weapon to fight. A Knight would be able to defend while summoning all kinds of different partners……
Two Jobs would allow one to have another Job’s stats and skills. With two Jobs coming together, it would be enough for one to become a strong player that disrupted the balance of the game.
It was another item that could break the balance that shouldn’t have existed appearing in his hands. Ye Tian Xie was silent for a bit before gripping his hands together and crushing the scroll.
The ash white scroll was destroyed, turning into gray light that ran along Ye Tian Xie’s arm before integrating into his body and disappearing…….
“Ding…..You have used the Heavenly Grade Scroll, God’s Gift. You can now have an extra different Job.”
Hearing the prompt in his ears, Ye Tian Xie finally believed. With this help of this strong item, he had obtained the qualification to get a second Job!
With twelve strong enemies reviving together like that, it would be enough to make any normal player feel complete despair. With this kind of terrifyingly difficult quest branch, the reward was bound to be very luxurious……Even so, this strong and unique Heavenly Grade Scroll had completely exceeded his expectations.
The Mercenary King just silently stood there without making any moves. Even though those gray eyes were still open, they were like dead fish eyes, not containing any light at all. Surrounding him, being completely silent, the twelve members of the Heavenly Soul mercenary group just lied there, creating a deathly silence.
The Mercenary King’s Relic, the Mercenary King’s Glory Badge had been obtained. The quest was over.
A white light shined on Ye Tian Xie and completely enveloped his body, sending him away from this dark underground tomb.
