Chapter 948: Qi Cultivation Increasing By Leaps and Bounds
No matter what, Fu Tianqiong was a Class One Hall elite. Not only was the defense in his demon vessels astonishing, his Affinity was also enough that he was durable. The abilities in his Moksha Realm body fortification were extraordinary, and he was also quite the cunning person. He was able to tell that Happy’s skills in dodging were extraordinary, and he had actually painted an image that he was suffering to lure Happy into his trap and make him relax his guard.
Origin Hybrid Qi, which was part of Origin Hybrid, exploded forth. He seized the opening Happy revealed when he was sent flying by the shock, and the longsword in his hands turned a cold light to shoot toward Happy’s chest.
The sword momentum traveled as quickly as lightning, and it was so fast that no one can see it clearly, but they did see Happy’s body being pierced through.
“Beautiful, Branch Master Fu!”
Right when the people from Class One Hall looked surprised and delighted, an unexpected situation appeared once more.
Happy’s afterimage vanished from the air again.
Fu Tianqiong, who dashed forward rapidly to seize the chance to attack, felt his vision blue. Then, a violent leg-generated wind swept at his face.
‘Impossible.’ This was Fu Tianqiong’s last thought.
Happy’s motion of sweeping his leg was fixed in the air.
Fu Tianqiong’s body flipped a few times while airborne, like wheat after it was harvested. He flew into the distance with his body twisted like fried braid dough. He crashed violently against the sturdy ground.
Fu Tianqiong did not crawl to his feet.
It was silent all around him.
After Happy landed on the ground, he stared at Fu Tianqiong’s body coldly while it slowly turned blurry. He looked up and swept his gaze over the group of Class One Hall members. He then calmly summoned his Hoof Shadow, and jumped on it.
He did not even bother with civilities. He just swung his whip and charged into the crowd that automatically parted itself for him. Then, he left into the distance.
The countless players who followed him in the crowd only managed to understand what happened after a long time passed.
“Did he win?”
“Fu Tianqiong is a rather decent elite in Class One Hall… and he can’t win against Happy?”
“I’m going to upload this battle replay! Don’t you dare stop me!”
“Ack! My firsthand information!”
While the crowd burst into commotion, the two stall owners who followed the crowd out looked at each other, and they were incredibly shocked.
This ending was different from what they expected.
And they were very certain that once this fight was over, the people from Blood Alliance and Class One Hall will not dare to underestimate Happy again and will treat him like a real opponent and enemy.
‘No wonder the tower master values him so much!’
Many people in the crowd had solemn expressions on their faces while they were occupied by their own thoughts.
When Happy arrived at the Mountain Villa of Ten Thousand Beasts, Hunter Clan came to greet him. Their faces were filled with excitement and disbelief. They looked incredibly high in spirits.
“Boss, you’re great!”
“That’s Fu Tianqiong, the branch master of Class One Hall’s second branch in Beijing. He’s definitely among the top one thousand in Class One Hall! And you actually managed to beat him up like a dog. Boss, take me in as your lacky!”
“You used a Life and Death Realm martial art to defeat a first-class elite at Moksha Realm? I—”
The words the group threw at him when they surrounded him enthusiastically caused Happy to not know whether he wanted to laugh or cry. He did not expect that in less than half an hour, the incident in Beijing had already traveled here.
“Alright, stop being so ridiculous. Let’s hurry up and enter the manor.”
“That’s right. We shouldn’t be gossiping. It’s not as if you don’t know Boss Happy’s strength.” Even Mu Qi had switched to calling Happy his boss, and Happy found himself a little speechless.
“By the way, I have something I want to show you. Help me analyze just how much it is worth, please.” Happy no longer needed to open the path for the first three young courtyards. Old Pang and Young Pang can now easily solve the matter. At that moment, Happy remembered there was something he did not use in his Universe Bag, and he immediately brought it out to let the trap masters beside him to look at it.
“It’s high-grade Wild Silk Net. My goodness, this is an item for traps that is at the level of a demon vessel! Boss Happy, where did you get it? This item seldom appears in the market!” someone shouted on the spot.
The people beside him nodded nonstop.
“I heard that demon vessel level traps can be used against Myth Realm elites. Wild Silk Net might not be an item that deals damage, it has great restriction abilities, and it can be used for a long time. It can even be used repeatedly. In fact, it’s even more expensive than those powerful consumables at the level of demon vessels!”
“Are you saying that it’s a good item?”
Happy was delighted. Good items can be sold several times the price of other items, and that, to him, was naturally good news. “I got it from the treasure house.
“I don’t know the market quotation for this. Please, tell me.”
“Whew, with it, we might be able to fight against some of the beast tamers at the beginning of Myth Realm at the three courtyards in the middle section. If you give it to us, we can place it in special contraptions made for shooting projectiles. We’ll first bind those beast tamers…
“Wait, but it’s rather troublesome to load this item into traps. We’ll need a lot of time, and it requires great, delicate work,” someone explained.
When he heard this, Happy immediately got rid of his idea of selling the item. “Alright, then I’ll hand this item to you. We can split up and enter the three courtyards in the middle as we will today! Then, if something happens, we’ll gather together.”
The trap masters were incredibly excited, and they waited for Mu Qi to distribute that Wild Silk Net with longing in their eyes.
Mu Qi was pretty good in his judgment as well. He found the most level-headed trap master and had him immediately load the item into a contraption. He also told him to only attack with it during critical moments, and it delighted the trap master so much that he grinned nonstop.
Their second day of gold farming began!
“This Happy is indeed not a simple character.”
Within the depths of Ghost’s Domain was Phantasmal Shadow, who had a white veil over her face. Once she finished reading the contents in the letter, she could not help but release an admiring sigh.
“There are plenty of elites in Class One Hall, and no one over there is weak. Fu Tianqiong is a branch master as well, so that means that his strength and cunning is pretty good, but he ended being completely suppressed by Happy…”
“He is indeed pretty good. He has just entered Moksha Realm, and that means that his strength only remains at the peak of Life and Death Realm. I wouldn’t be able to do what he did,” the woman beside Phantasmal Shadow said, “Looks like I’ve truly underestimated him.”
That woman stopped talking for a moment and said in worry, “But he’s still very weak right now. If we hope for someone whose strength and skill remains at the point he stopped playing one and a half years ago to fight against Class One Hall, it’s not wise. Right now, he has already alerted them and made Dream Clouds and Blood Robes to be on guard against him. I believe that he won’t have an easy time in the game now.”
“It’s fine. We have plenty of Illusion Life and Death Pills. Besides, I’ve already sent someone to give him indirect hints. If he really can’t get through the game alone, he will contact us on his own.”
“Why aren’t we taking the initiative to invite him to join us?”
“I thought about that. But this sort of person who is incredibly prideful won’t easily submit to someone unless they lose once or twice,” Phantasmal Shadow answered calmly, “From the first day he reentered the game, he did not bother to hide how brilliantly he shines, and he has his mind set on revenge by making things hard for Blood Robes and Dream Clouds. If I invite him now, he’ll definitely not agree to it. No matter what, we’ve already delivered our intentions to him, and all we need to do now is wait.”
“Should we wait for him? What if he’s defeated like one and a half years ago? What should we do then?”
“If he’s that easily defeated, then he’s not worthy of catching One Emperor’s eye. If that’s sort of person, he won’t be of any help to Wind Assault Tower even if we bring him into our tower.”
“Tower master, you’re truly wise.”
“Jerk, you’ve learned how to butter up people now?”
Happy, who was said by Phantasmal Shadow to have not bothered to hide his brilliance, was currently keeping a low profile and doing his duty of luring enemies at Mountain Villa of Ten Thousand Beasts.
However, the weapon in his hands had turned from Silver Thread Gloves to a third-echelon longsword. This was an item of average quality he randomly picked up at the market, but it was perfect for him to practice Great Demonic World Destruction Art.
At the same time, he dutifully lured the beasts for the party, he activated Indestructible Body while he occasionally left behind a few gashes on the horde of creatures behind him.
While he effectively lured the creatures, he did not forget to slowly train.
After a few hours, he gained quite the decent rewards. His sword technique had slowly entered the middle stage of the second realm, but that was because he spent most of his time luring these beasts.
However, Happy used this time to gain some understanding toward Great Demonic World Destruction Art.
Although among supreme grade manuals, unique manuals were not as sought after as profound manuals because they did not have the ability to turn something mundane into something amazing, which profound manuals can, did not have the ingenious moves in profound manuals, and used up a lot more qi compared to profound manuals, but unique manuals had their own benefits.
This was especially prominent among evil sword techniques. They will drain twice the amount of qi compared to profound techniques in exchange for shocking power, and each attack will be attached with a rather decent effect.
For example, Great Demonic World Destruction Art will bring forth a faint, black flame with each slash, and it had a highly damaging effect on body fortifications. Besides, when its realm was high, the sword glares and sword forces it produced did not even require the effect from Wind Spirit Spin to bring about an AOE effect. The black flames can already produce AOE attacks!
When the leopards, lions, wolves, and jackals died behind him, practically all of them had a very clear burn mark left on them at the moment of their deaths.
‘As expected of a unique manual…’ Happy was satisfied with this. ‘Not only is its speed about the same as Universe’s Lightning Destruction Style, its damage is practically thirty percent above that sword technique. Even though the speed in which I use my qi is rather terrifying, I’m practicing Tendon Changing Classic, and its speed in recovering qi doesn’t lose to Nine Yang Divine Skill at all. Besides, the advantage of having my meridian system widened is that I can bring out the effect of Great Demonic World Destruction Art even more. My damage and speed are steadily increasing, and I’ll soon be able to catch up to my strength in the other world. In fact, I might even be able to surpass him.’
While everyone reorganized themselves, Happy sat down cross-legged and meditated so that he could enter the other world to check on himself.
When he did, he was shocked.
He originally did not know whether he can train smoothly in this manner, but clearly, the results did not disappoint him. After three hours, his Indestructible Body shot up to the peak of the fourth realm, and it was about to reach the fifth realm. Tendon Changing Classic might be progressing a little slowly, but it was also about to reach the fourth realm.
Besides, as his defense grew stronger, when a round of attacks landed on him, he would no longer be injured and cough up blood, because the defense in Indestructible Body had already surpassed three thousand points. The protective ability in the periosteum formed by Tendon Changing Classic and his ability to restore his defense had become much stronger as well. His qi had now shot up by nearly thirty points.
‘Tendon Changing Classic defies logic too much…’
Happy had a feeling that if this continued, the attacks from the Inaction Realm prisoners will have a hard time breaking through the defense formed by Nine Yang Divine Skill, Tendon Changing Classic, and Indestructible Body.
“Attack twenty times in one round, and once you do, stop for one hundred and fifty seconds.”
He quickly made a new setting before he left and returned to his other body in Mountain Villa of Ten Thousand Beasts.
Those few minutes were enough for the group to reorganize themselves.
Even though he did not waste much time, Happy found himself to still be unable to adapt to the matter of moving between two worlds. He only got up after he rested for half a minute, and they went back to farming money.
Then, a strange question popped up in his head.
‘Hang on a second. Doesn’t that mean I’ll have to eat six meals now?’
He found himself rendered speechless by his own thought.
