Chapter 27- Promotion to High-Order
There was the Artisan Secretary and Security Chief position still left, so he might as well give his three brothers a position.
After some thought, Cheng Yang decided to appoint Liu Hao as Guard Leader, and Yu Kai as Artisan Secretary. Relatively speaking, the guard leader’s permission wasn’t much, as it only controlled the switch to the gates wall. But this permission was undoubtedly the most important, and if this person were not trustworthy, then it was a recipe for disaster.
Afterward, Cheng Yang set the Artisan Secretary and Martial Coach’s permissions, and although they would have some control over the buildings, but if the permissions setting were too large, Cheng Yang would feel uneasy. Especially Lee Wanshan, they only had contact for two or three days, so he didn’t have a deep understanding of him.
Cheng Yang set the two official position permissions to only allow transfer or learning skills, but they could not remove people from their respective department. He also retained the blacklist permission, as long as he blacklisted someone, they would be unable to transfer at a statue in Luo Feng Village, nor could they learn a craft in the stores.
Later there was only one last thing to do, and that was to receive his privilege: Grace.
After selecting grace, a pure energy once again overflowed from the altar, and quickly drilled into Cheng Yang’s body, as it washed his every cell. He felt his body become one time stronger, and mind more clearly.
Ten seconds later, the effect of the grace ended. Cheng Yang quickly opened his personal properties panel.
At the time Cheng Yang’s properties wasn’t as simple as it was originally, his attack could even spike a first-low order sorcerer’s apprentice. Even if he suffered from an enchanted beast’s siege of more than 10 first-early order enchanted beasts, he could easily win, but also be unscathed. If he had enough magic pills, then he would be invincible in the first order.
For character’s properties, Cheng Yang often criticized it, because other than the attack speed and movement speed, the rest of the property were all integer. According to precise calculation, Cheng Yang’s magic attack should have been 23.8, but instead it showed up as 23 magic attack.
There was something else Cheng Yang is annoyed about namely their skills.
By rights, now that he had reached first-high order sorcerer’s apprentice, he could learn new magician skills. But presently there was nowhere to learn it.
From his last life, Cheng Yang knew two ways to learn skills, one was from skill books, and the other was from learning them under the profession statues. For most people, skill books were scarce, and group skill books were even rarer, so the most mainstream way was to learn the skills from the profession statues.
But the field station statues didn’t have any skill from the outset, it’s only when the level was raised to a certain extent would the appropriate skills appear. From this point of view, the main city might have a very big advantage, because from the outset you could already learn the basic skills at the statues.
Of course, the field station statues also had their advantages, such as when learning a skill from a field station it would consume less power value, and secondly the statues could be given new skills. Of course, the second point wasn’t easy to achieve, because any props that gave statue new skills were priceless.
Presently Luo Feng village was only level 2, and in order for Cheng Yang to learn late-order sorcerer’s apprentice skills, he would have to wait until the statue was upgraded to level 3.
Cheng Yang was glad that after using his grace to improve a small order, his previous progress in cultivation had been preserved. But due to the difficulty of upgrading, it made his progress in cultivation be cut in half, from 5.4% to 2.7%.
Cheng Yang immediately turn off his properties panel, and began his cultivation for the night. Although the territory upgrade could bring rapidly increase his strength, but it was not a major upgrade at this stage, Cheng Yang knew that when the field station was upgraded to a certain extent, to rise in personal cultivation would be much more difficult.
Although Cheng Yang already had level 3 meditation and could also open four times cultivation speed, along with his own talent and residence enhancing his cultivation by 19%, but after one night of practice, his progress in high-order sorcerer’s apprentice only went up by 2.3%. If there were no four times cultivation speed, he was afraid that the efficiency would be very low, it would only increase about 0.5%, and to break through to first peak-order sorcerer’s apprentice, he would have to spend nearly 200 days. (His talent give him 9% and the residence give him 10% so his cultivation increase by an extra 19%)
To have such a powerful effect, the power value consumption was also very scary. Level 3 meditation along with four time cultivation speed consumed about 120 points of power values per hour, so a full four hours would consume 480 points, which was really not what ordinary people could afford.
The next day at dawn, Cheng Yang opened his eyes, and saw Yu Kai and his brothers in the same room as him woke up already. Cheng Yang made the four of them live together in a house, because of the houses shortages, but also due to it being convenient when discussing matters.
“Yangzi, as a Lord, you should at least get yourself a separate room.” Yu Kai urged.
Cheng Yang smiled and said, “Who doesn’t know what you guys are thinking? You guys are used to sleeping in their own room, and now all of a sudden, being huddled together with other people, make you uncomfortable, right?”
Yu Kai bitter faced and said, “You know me well Yangzi, but…… let’s forget it, others are still sleeping outside. Screw this doomsday!”
Cheng Yang continue to dwell on this issue, said, “The wood brought back yesterday is enough to build four houses, so today’s task will be to increase the number of transfers. We will fight until we have 40 transfer for each team, then we would be able to challenge bigger groups of enchanted beast.”
Yu Kai and the others suddenly became excited, having more people transfer is naturally a good thing. Moreover, this is the end, so the number of transfers represent security and power.
Liu Hao said, “Yangzi, we have too little priest, and each team has only one. In small fight this doesn’t matter, but if you really want to challenge those big herds of enchanted beast, I’m afraid the number of priest would be insufficient.”
Cheng Yang said, “There is nothing I can do about this, priest belong to a half-special occupation, so we are lucky to have it in advance. In order to have more priests, the only way is to enhance the level of the statue as soon as possible. This thing isn’t urgent, we can just proceed slowly. You guys should each select four people from their respective teams, and take a trip into the instance. Remember to pay attention to what I told you yesterday, and make sure to be careful, so that there won’t be any problem.”
Liu Hao and others positively nodded.
After several people came out from the House, Liu Hao, Yu Kai, and Niu Bing selected four people from their team, and then went into the Scarlet Church instance. Lee Wanshan was together with Cheng Yang in the selection of the transfers.
In fact, to transfer people did not require the presence of Cheng Yang or Lee Wanshan, but at this stage in order to avoid things beyond his control, Cheng Yang shut the transfer permission down. Each person that wanted to transfer had to obtain the consent of Cheng Yang. Of course, Lee Wanshan also had this permission.
The transfer process went very smoothly, and after all the transfer quota for all the statues was used up, Luo Feng village had 209 transfers. Thus, in addition to each team captain, there were a minimum of 40 people, this greatly increased their strength. The reason for the extra four spots was due to Lee Wanshan’s talent, it made the four profession statues transfer quota reached 51.
However, for this group of transfers, their talents had weakened a lot, from the newly added 100 people, no one had S-level talent. But there were still some with A or B level talent, so it could be considered a good result. If nothing else, in the future, these 205 people would become the backbone of the Luo Feng village.
At this time, Cheng Yang appointed Zhao Chuan as his team vice-captain, so that he could take his whole team out to kill monsters, and let them earn power value, while at the same time allow the newcomers to gain some fighting experience.
Unlike before, now that Luo Feng village was upgraded to level 2, the territory area coverage had reached nine square kilometers, with walls delineating the area quite well. In other word, that was before within one kilometer of the land outside the walls were then being included within territory, and in this context there would no longer be any enchanted beast spawning here. This was also one of the world rules.
Currently, the area outside of Luo Feng village had significantly expanded, and the enchanted beast they didn’t have time to kill before basically grouped together. The minimum number of monster in each group were more than 10, while larger monster communities could even reach 100, the size of which was not a joke.
Although Zhao Chuan didn’t have the ability to lead the team against these massive monster community, but when dealing with group of more than 10 enchanted beasts was still very easy.
After Zhao Chuan led the team out of the station, the four other teams soon organized their troops and left the station. In addition to the 10 transfers left at the station to maintain order, the others had all gone out.
