Chapter 1352 – Auction House Design
Flame Blood froze when he saw the Evil Demon inside the magic array disappear .
Even a Great Lord ranked Evil Demon of the same level would require a team of hundreds of elite players, led by dozens of experts, to take down . They had learned this lesson during their experiments in the Frozen Scar . In the end, the Great Lord had more than two-thirds of its HP remaining after wiping out the entire elite team .
Yet, Shi Feng killed a Level 70 Grand Lord ranked Evil Demon by himself…
Beast Emperor wore an indescribably grim expression .
Not only had Abandoned Wave been captured, but he had also lost a Grand Lord ranked Evil Demon . It had taken a lot of effort to nurture five Evil Demons . Grand Lord ranked Evil Demons were not easy to produce . It all depended on an Evil Demon’s potential . He had killed many peak experts to obtain five Evil Demons capable of reaching the Great Lord rank .
After his momentary rage, the crimson crystal, which had formed after the Evil Demon’s death, drew Beast Emperor’s attention .
How is this possible?! How could a mere Grand Lord possibly drop an Evil God Crystal?! Shock, excitement, and greed flashed in Beast Emperor’s eyes as he stared at the crystal .
It was highly unlikely that players outside of the Evil God’s Temple would understand how valuable the item was . However, to Evil God’s Temple players, the Evil God Crystal was an absolute treasure . It was even too valuable to trade for a Mythic ranked Evil Demon .
Shi Feng grabbed the Evil God Crystal and shoved it in his bag before Beast Emperor could get a closer look . His eyes became bloodshot with fury as he wanted nothing more than to kill Shi Feng with his own hands . Unfortunately, he was only here as a mirror image . He could not touch Shi Feng .
Beast Emperor quickly calmed himself . Turning to the somewhat feeble Shi Feng, he smiled and praised, “Guild Leader Black Flame, you’re truly capable . Even the strongest Evil Demon under my command wouldn’t be a match for you . As expected of Star-Moon Kingdom’s number one expert . ”
“What? Trying to persuade me with sweet words after failing with brute force?” Shi Feng sneered as he glanced at Beast Emperor .
Although he suffered a Weakened state, decreasing his Attributes by 70%, he was easily strong enough to kill Flame Blood and drag Abandoned Wave back to the War God’s Temple .
He knew that an Evil God Envoy could only create a limited number of Evil God Apostles . Losing even one Apostle would undoubtedly weaken Beast Emperor .
Beast Emperor’s expression darkened, a cold glint flashing in his eyes . He was the Evil God’s Temple’s sole Evil God Envoy . He was fated to become an overlord, establishing the Evil God’s Empire in God’s Domain, yet a Guild Leader from a measly kingdom stood before him, ridiculing his failure .
If only he were here physically, he would give Shit Feng a taste of despair .
“Black Flame, let’s not waste time talking . Why don’t we make a trade?” Beast Emperor said after suppressing his rage . “You’ll gain at most some Merit Points for handing an Evil God Apostle over to the War God’s Temple, but I can offer your Guild resources others dream of and access to Dark Cities . Zero Wing desperately needs these . ”
The Evil God’s Temple was one of God’s Domain’s strongest dark forces . It had branches throughout numerous kingdoms and empires . He couldn’t help Zero Wing gain access to every NPC Dark City, but getting access to a few shouldn’t be a problem .
This was also why Heaven’s Burial was willing to help Abandoned Wave gather so many Evil Beasts and Evil Demons in such a short time .
“Sure, I might get some measly Merit Points for handing over an Evil God Apostle, but ridding God’s Domain of an Apostle is just as good,” Shi Feng said, chuckling . Although he was interested in access to multiple Dark Cities, getting rid of an Evil God Apostle that had been persistent in picking fights was a better option . If not for the Adventurer’s Association’s assistance in Stone Forest Town, Zero Wing might have failed to protect it . Shi Feng would have been forced to accept mutual destruction, using a method to prevent anyone from claiming the town .
Beast Emperor nearly popped a vein when he heard Shi Feng’s refusal . Taking a deep breath, he tried again, “How about this? I have an Auction House Design in my possession . I also have a Secret Land Key that can open the Secret Land Door, allowing you to send 1,000 players through at a time . Aside from the resources the secret land has to offer, you can gain far more Magic Crystals there than in the Stoneclaw Mountains . I will also help Zero Wing gain access to five Dark Cities . In return, you just need to hand over the Mobile Jail and the crimson crystal . ”
The Auction House Design might not be useful for a Basic Town, but it was a different story for Stone Forest Town .
Once a player town had an Auction House, it would lure more players, and the ruling Guild would make a profit from the handling fees .
Of course, the Secret Land Key was obviously quite valuable . If a Guild periodically harvested the resources from the secret land, it wouldn’t need to fight other Guilds for resources .
With these items, Zero Wing wouldn’t need much time to improve by leaps and bounds . A measly ten or twenty thousand War God’s Temple Merit Points couldn’t compare to these benefits .
Beast Emperor’s offer stunned Shi Feng for a moment .
The Auction House Design was extremely rare in God’s Domain . It was any less rare than the Teleportation Magic Array Design . However, while the Teleportation Magic Array Design could be used multiple times, the Auction House Design was a one-time-use item . He had never expected Beast Emperor to offer up such an item .
The Secret Land Key was also extremely valuable . It was only slightly less valuable than mineral veins that produced Magic Crystals .
Shi Feng had to admit that Beast Emperor’s offer was incredibly tempting .
Meanwhile, Flame Blood, who overheard the offer, was also dumbfounded . Heaven’s Burial dreamed of obtaining both items, especially the Secret Land Key . He would never have dreamed that Beast Emperor would offer such items and access to five Dark Cities in exchange for Abandoned Wave and the crimson crystal . Not even Super Guilds would refuse such an offer .
“How tempting! But I still refuse!” Shi Feng responded, smiling . “I’m not in the habit of breeding troublemakers!”
If an Evil God Apostle had only attacked his town by chance, he might consider letting them go . However, the Apostle in his hands had intentionally picked a fight . Truth be told, even if he released this troublemaking Apostle, he wouldn’t be afraid for his future . After all, once Zero Wing reinforced its foundations, its development speed would only continue to increase . Furthermore, an Evil God Apostle required a large amount of resources to create Evil Beasts and Evil Demons . If Star-Moon Kingdom’s various large Guilds were cautious, creating more underlings wouldn’t be easy .
However, he had no interest in fighting siege wars for no good reason .
Moreover, he still had plenty of things he needed to attend to . He did not have enough time to waste in Star-Moon Kingdom .
Again, Beast Emperor was stunned . However, he demanded in a chilly voice, “Do you really intend to fight me to the bitter end?”
