Chapter 37- Natural Medicine
After Cheng Yang opened the scroll, a flash of white light wrapped around his body, and soon his entire body instantly disappeared from his original location.
When Cheng Yang opened up his eyes again, the scene around him completely changed.
This did not surprise him, because all the craft transfer tasks are completed in a particular copy. In this copy, the consequences of getting killed will result in the failure of the task, but there won’t be any actual death.
At that moment, Cheng Yang heard a voice sounded inside his head: Welcome to the Alchemist copy transfer task, begin countdown: 10-9-8-… …
Cheng Yang was filled with tension, don’t know if God will give arrange a first-peak order enchanted beast to face him, if that’s the case, he is not likely to succeed. For all profession, only during the apprentice level would the gap be the largest*. At this stage the possibility of leapfrog fighting is very low. [Imagine two high level players fighting one another, even if one of them is higher by a rank it won’t mean much and will depend more on the person skill, but at lower levels, rank is more important because of the huge properties boost at the early level.]
So if Cheng Yang encountered a first-peak order enchanted beast now, no matter how good his fighting technique is, he wouldn’t be able to kill it. The surrounding environment in this copy is completely flat, there is simply no place he can use to his advantage.
But he felt the possibility of a first-peak enchanted beast appearing here is very low, after all, even if this is a extremely difficult level task, no one could complete it. But if a first-peak enchanted beast does appear in this copy, for the current humans, it would be impossible to clear it. The extremely difficult level task are set up so that humans would have a chance to beat it. It would never be impossible, there will always be a way to clear it.
While Cheng Yang is feeling nervous, the task countdown came to an end.
“Thanks for selecting Alchemist as your secondary profession, to be a successful Alchemist, being able to identify medicinal herbs can be considered the basic. Within half an hour, please find the following ten medicinal herbs in the copy: Sky sword grass, Black ice flower……”
After reading the task prompt, Cheng Yang felt his head being run over by 10,000 grass mud horses. Of course, after the grass mud horse sped through, he start to get excited.
The task turned out to be identifying herbs.
Of course, this task is not simple, nor would it let a person who used to be a doctor take advantage of it. Because after the transformation of the world, the medicinal herbs completely changed, and new medicinal herb started to emerge. Thus, even if it’s the reincarnation of Hua Tuo*, it is impossible to accomplish such a task. [Chinese Physician]
But with Cheng Yang’s knowledge, this task is very simple, although his secondary profession wasn’t Alchemist, but he had seen these herbs before. Because these ten medicinal herbs are the materials needed to make mana potion(S) and health potion(S). If mix together with the appropriate ratio, it’s enough to make the two prescriptions.
Why did the Gods come up with such a task? Cheng Yang can somewhat guess, God himself don’t personally control the copies, but let them run automatically under certain rules. Now out such a simple task, the biggest reason is that the rules of heaven and Earth don’t know Cheng Yang was reborn. Accordance to the inference of the rules of heaven and Earth, the current strength of the average human is close non-transfer. In other words, even if now appear a first-early enchanted beast in the copy, it can be claimed as difficult-level task. Because there are still some people around the world that are able to defeat it. But If a mid or first-late order enchanted beast appeared, it is simply not possible for others to clear the extremely difficult level task, since at this stage, apart from Cheng Yang, I’m afraid no one can defeat such enchanted beast.
Such a task, as far as Cheng Yang is concerned, is equivalent to him cheating, which is not permitted by the rules, so the principle of strength to measure the clearance standards has automatically been abandoned*. It was replaced with herbs identification as the new task, to the number of people surviving on Earth, even if it is by luck, there will be two or three people that could accomplish this task, which also comply with the rules. [He is so overpowered compared to other humans, that the system have to give him a new task instead of giving him a fighting task.]
But what the rules of heaven and Earth didn’t know, is that such a task for Cheng Yang is even simpler than killing a first-late order enchanted beast.
The size of this copy is small, it’s roughly around ten thousands square meters in a shape of a circle around 100 meters in diameter. But in such a place are covered with a wide variety of plants, including some rare things, which make Cheng Yang feel envious.
But these rare things are untouchable, because this task look at the 10 herbs in his hands to determine whether he clear the task or not, no more, no less.
Cheng Yang immediately began rummaging around the copy.
“Sky sword grass, found……”
“Black ice flower, found……”
“Earth Dragon root is here……”
Less than a moment of effort, ten different kinds of medicinal herbs are gathered in Cheng Yang’s hands.
“You have ten different kinds of medicinal herbs, are you sure you want to complete the task? “A deep voice echoed inside his mind, and sure enough, it gave the challenger a chance to choose.
Cheng Yang did not hesitate to say OK.
Moment later, the space around Cheng Yang began distorting, and soon his body disappeared.
“You came back so soon? “When Cheng Yang’s figure appear again in the Alchemy room, the owner couldn’t help but stare.
It’s no wonder he is so surprise, in his view, since Cheng Yang can reach higher order apprentice by the end of the fourth day, he can definitely be considered the best among the humans. So the chances of Cheng Yang clearing the extremely difficult task is highly likely, but the time spent can’t be so short. He came out of the copy so soon, did the task fail?
But he never would had thought that Cheng Yang received a task that has nothing to do with fighting, but instead asked him to identify medicinal herbs.
Cheng Yang smiled and stretched out his right hand, suddenly holding above 10 different strains of medicinal herbs, said: “Had some good luck, the Gods gave me a task of identifying herbs, and these herbs I already know, so I was able to get it done quickly.”
Looking at the ten strains of medicinal herbs in Cheng Yang’s hands, the owner had a dream-like feeling, for a transfer that has yet to learn a craft to complete this task is too difficult. The most crucial point is that Cheng Yang is the world’s first to switch to Alchemist, before this, no one knew about these herbs.
But now Cheng Yang really finished the task, the owner in addition to being surprise had no other thought, he immediately smiled and said: “It seems you really are a natural born Alchemist! Your harvest is enough to make the Gods envious. Since you’re the first inaugural Alchemist, you get an extra innate talent called Natural medicine, this is a unique talent, after you take any medicine, can get twice the effect. At the same time, you completed the inaugural task on extremely difficult level, you will transfer into a very powerful alchemist. Specifically what they are, you have to wait until after the inauguration to know. ”
When he finished, the owner took out from under the table a golden token and gave it to Cheng Yang, said: “That’s the craft inaugural token, using it will directly let you learn the craft. ”
Cheng Yang had used this thing before, but the token he used then was black, it look a couple of notches worse than this pale gold token.
Cheng Yang took the token, and directly hold it in his palm, he then silently activated the inaugural token. Moment later, Cheng Yang felt his palm was empty, and that the token has already disappeared.
Cheng Yang can’t wait to open his properties panel, he suddenly found a new column on craft.
Level: 1 (0%)
Energy: 20 points
Talent: God effect (unique): After refining any pharmaceutical drug, efficiency will increase by 100%.
Skills: Herbs (level 1): Identified wild grown herbs, and successfully picked it. Picking medicinal herbs are related to herb skill level.
Pharmaceutical (level 1): You can make all kinds of pills and potions. Medicines that can be learn and refine are related to Pharmaceutical skill level.
Mastered recipe: None.
Compared with the main profession, the Alchemist’s page is more concise, but also introduced a powerful talent. For ordinary Alchemist, there is no exclusive talent, but some of the main profession transfers are likely to have talents that give craft bonus. If completed the difficulty level craft task, they can get a normal talent, of course, such talents can be either good or bad, sometimes it need a bit of luck.
But this is where unique craft talent differ, because anyone with a unique craft talent, can enhance a particular aspect capacity by 100%. Such as production, properties, reducing energy consumption, or reducing raw materials consumption. For any of the crafts, there is more than one unique talent, but it can not be denied, such talents are certainly extremely rare. After all, any craft talent that can enhance or reduce are very little.
Suddenly, Cheng Yang arrived at a thought which made him ecstatic, if he use his new passive talent along with his craft talent, won’t that increase the effect by four times? If it’s only normal recovery potions, it won’t cause Cheng Yang to be so excited, because it can only let him save a few power value. But he knows that in this world, there is some drugs that can permanently or temporarily increase certain properties, this is where Alchemist truly reflect their value. With Natural Medicine and God effect, these two talents, it will without a doubt increase the properties of drugs to make Cheng Yang very extremely powerful.
Cheng Yang recovered his excited mood, said: “Thanks for the help boss, excuse me boss, do you have any recipe in the shop for sale? ”
The owner immediately answered: “I only have here two refining recipes, if you need a higher level recipe, you need to upgrade the Alchemy room as soon as possible. ”
Cheng Yang nodded and said, “I will soon upgrade the Alchemy room, I will buy the small mana potion refining recipe. ”
Happy shopkeeper from the rear shelf took down scroll and handed it to Cheng Yang, said: “This recipe requires 1000 power values. ”
Cheng Yang without any hesitation, immediately pay the bill. 1000 power values are astronomical, but it is not unbearable to Cheng Yang.
