Chapter 39- Pharmaceutical
Alienation beast was clearly very powerful, but if Cheng Yang were to be ask whether or not he would like to meet one, he would raise his hands and feet to give a positive answer.
It’s not that Cheng Yang was tired of living, but because alienation beast had incomparable features.
One of which was alienation beast could be reined, in gaming term, it meant alienation beast could be received as a pet.
However, the number of alienation beast was too few, and their strength varied from overpowered to very weak, so taming them was not an easy thing. In the previous world, it was made public that a person had received an alienation beast as a pet. It was because of this matter, professions all around the world salivate at the thought of alienation beast. Some people would even be willing to risk their lives by going further into inaccessible places, in hope of encountering any possible alienation beast. But most of these people tended to not come back alive.
Although Cheng Yang hoped to encounter an alienation beast, but he also knew that it was an extravagant hope, because there had never been a precedent of alienation beast appearing near a station. It could be said that the field stations and main cities were the places where God was most concerned about, but also where the rules of Heaven and Earth were the most complete. And alienation beast drifted on the edge of the rules of Heaven and Earth, so it was not possible for them to appear in this region.
Alienation beast for Cheng Yang was still very distant existence, his most important task now was still killing enchanted beast, in order to accumulate more power value for himself.
Next, Cheng Yang continued to sweep through the forest. Usually when encountering groups of enchanted beast below seventy to eighty, Cheng Yang would not use any mana potion, instead he would rely on the attack-retreat method to slowly kill the enchanted beast. Only in this way could a mana potion be used to its maximum effect.
After an hour, Cheng Yang had massacred a large communities of over 300 enchanted beasts, as well as two medium-sized communities of about 200 monsters. As for small communities, he eliminated seven to eight of them. This makes Cheng Yang’s power value reached 1,600 points again.
But at the same time, his mana potions were also depleted, so it was time for him to head back home.
After returning to Luo Feng Village, Cheng Yang discovered that Liu Hao was cultivating. His group of 40 people were also doing their cultivation. In order to ensure maximum efficiency, all of the residences were given priority to cultivators. Even if the rest of the people wanted to rest, they could only do so by sleeping outside.
If it were when these people first came to Luo Feng Village, perhaps there would be many people feeling dissatisfied about this arrangement, but now, no one raised any objections. During these past two days cleaning up Huimin Town, they had seen too many deaths, from which corpses could be seen piled up everywhere. If the luck were good the bones would be a complete set, if bad luck, there would only be a heap of mutilated limbs.
These scenes made these survivors feel deeply fortunate to still be alive, while at the same time having enough food to eat. As for a place to sleep, who would care? Who dared to ask for it?
Cheng Yang was then in doubt on whether after his cultivation was finished, should he have continued to take out another 1,000 power values for someone else to cultivate.
There was no doubt that this would accelerate Luo Feng village’s strength growth, but for others, Cheng Yang was not very reassuring. 1,000 power values, although it was not a very big number, but at this stage it was still very important to Cheng Yang.
If not given to others to use, the role it played on him was not great. To open up higher speed cultivation was not an extra 1,000 or 2,000 power values could solve. After opening four times cultivation speed was six times cultivation speed, and six times cultivation speed required 10,000 power values to be opened. If Cheng Yang wanted to gather so many power value, he would need about seven to eight days.
If the 1,000 power values were loaned to others, for seven or eight days, it was almost enough for them to upgrade to mid apprentice order.
After some thinking, Cheng Yang ultimately decided to take out this power value for other people to use. Of course, it was just borrowing, when his power value could reach 10,000 points, he would take back all these power value, in order to open six times cultivation speed.
Currently the time was around 10 o’clock at night, it was about four hours away from time he could began cultivating again. Cheng Yang woke Liu Hao up from his cultivation state, and then said to him, “What do you think about the man named Chen Chao?”
“Chen Chao?” Liu Hao was surprised for a moment, then said, “The man is very good, his profession is Archer, and before the apocalypse he was a professionally trained soldier. After only a few days of transferring, he can basically shoot with unfailing accuracy. Also Chen Chao’s loyalty to Luo Feng Village is very high. He and his mother are residents from Huimin Town, and were rescued by us back from the ruins, so his feelings for the village is also very high.”
Cheng Yang nodded and said, “If you think he is good, then you can train him to be your vice-captain. After your team get bigger, it would be hard for one person to manage, therefore training vice-captains is important.”
Liu Hao instantly understood, he thought for a moment, then said, “Chen Chao really is an appropriate choice, after all, he is from the same team, so managing people is very set. I haven’t thought about this problem before, and now that Yangzi mentioned it, it dawned on me. Yangzi, although you were the one that say it, but you can’t be stealing people away from me.”
Cheng Yang snappily said, “Do I need to do that?”
“Well, theoretically everyone in Luo Feng Village is under your command.” Liu Hao said, “But you also can’t just take him away from my hands, right?”
“Well, I promise you.” Cheng Yang understood this guy very well, if he didn’t agree with it, he could be stuck in an argument with him till midnight.
Then, Cheng Yang discussed with Liu Hao on who was right to be the vice-captains of several of the other teams, at which Liu Hao also recommended a few people.
At this time, Yu Kai and his group carried a large amount of material from the Huimin Town back. Cheng Yang also asked him about the vice-captain’s problem, but Yu Kai had already long considered this issue, immediately a person was chosen.
When the person was standing in front of Cheng Yang, Cheng Yang suddenly discovered he was the taxi driver that send Niu Bing two people over. This time he was able to know the other side name, Lu Jiacheng.
Lu Jiacheng’s profession was soldier, he also had a good talent, which is A-class. In the village, he could be counted as part of the main force.
Cheng Yang saw several of the other teams had yet to return, so immediately he told Liu Hao to call Chen Chao over, Cheng Yang then separated from his account 1,000 power values which he transmitted to the other party, and said its usage requirement.
In fact, it was very simple, this 1,000 power value could only be used to open four times cultivation speed, and could not be used without permission. After the four hours of cultivation was finished, it had to be forwarded to the next team vice-captain.
Next, Cheng Yang went to Alchemy Room to buy 20 bottles of mana potion (M), then left Luo Feng Village.
This time, Cheng Yang’s courage increased a lot, so he got a torch to help light up the night. He hoped to find some material for refining mana potion, so that the 20 craft energy values didn’t go to waste.
It was important to know that energy couldn’t be recovered with potions, it automatically filled up at midnight every day, so if it were not spent, it was completely wasted. And how many times a person could use their daily production skills, also depended entirely on the energy value. Only when the craft level was raised would the energy value correspondingly increase. Therefore, in order to ensure the pace of the craft upgrade, using up the energy values every day was necessary.
Cheng Yang didn’t only bring along a torch, but also a large bag, which contained a one foot high medicine furnace. Cheng Yang now had four points of physical strength, so carrying the medicine furnace was also very easy.
Have to say, in the beginning of the end, was a complete paradise for all craft professions, everywhere around station could be seen various kinds of materials. Although these materials were the most common materials, but it could also fully satisfy the current needs at the present stage.
The torch light would lead to monster attacks, but it also made it easier for Cheng Yang to find the herbs on the ground.
After two kilometers, Cheng Yang’s backpack contained more than 20 strains of herb, and this was also because he could only gather the herbs for refining mana potion, otherwise the number would be more. 10 strains of herb were only enough to make three small bottles of mana potion.
When approaching the monsters gathering place, Cheng Yang, for security reason, would first put out the torch. He was also afraid of being embattled.
Since then, each time Cheng Yang eliminated a monster community, he would reignite the torch and continue searching. If there were any herbs for refining mana potion, he would immediately pluck them into his bag.
Now power-related equipment couldn’t be used, which also included electronic lighters. Fortunately, Cheng Yang and the rest previously from Huimin Town ruins found a lot of petrol lighters, which were ignited by flint. If they couldn’t even use these, humanity would really return to the primitive society.
Time is getting closer to 12 PM, Cheng Yang carried 20 bottles of mana potion has been consumed by more than half, and the herbs in his backpack is enough to refined 20 bottle of mana potions. Immediately Cheng Yang stopped searching for herbs, and after finding a small cave, he then prepare to refined the potions
Actually, refining potions was also very simple, after placing the medicine furnace in front, he just needed to put the correct amount of materials listed by the recipe inside the furnace, and then activated the appropriate pharmaceutical skill. After waiting a certain amount of time, the potion would be completed.
Of course, the refining potion success rate was not high. Cheng Yang was currently only a level 1 Alchemist, refining small mana potion success rate was around 60%. The reason for such a success rate was due to mana potion and health potion being made from the most common herbs, so refining them was very simple. If later when refining higher quality potion, the success rates tended to be frighteningly low.
Mana potion refining time was very short, it needed only a few seconds to make a bottle. After the refining was finished, the pharmacy was already prepared in a bottle.
Mana Potion (S): Level 1. Alchemist Cheng Yang refined mana recovery potion, Alchemist Cheng Yang’s talent greatly enhanced the efficiency. Profession after taking have a one-time instant recovery of 20 mana, afterward will have a recovery of 4 points of mana per second for 10 seconds.
