Chapter 49- Wind Shackle
Next, Cheng Yang started counting today’s harvest.
To him, the biggest gain was obtaining the Redirection skill. However, after using this skill for no less than 50 times today, the skill proficiency only increased by a meager 2%. In addition, the skill required as much as 40 power values to learn, which is not something ordinary people can afford. Although the learning condition for the skill is only at low-order apprentice, but the 40 power values consumption isn’t something an ordinary low-order apprentice profession would have.
For Luo Feng village, the biggest harvest was once again rescuing nearly 3,000 people, and previously the village had already rescued more than 6,000 people from Huimin town. Plus those that are temporarily not yet rescued from Huimin town, Luo Feng village’s population will soon be able to break through 10,000.
Cheng Yang doesn’t know how much population is needed after the territory break through to town, but a figure of 10,000 isn’t small.
In addition, after a day’s effort from the carpenters, 250 units of wood were harvested . The reason for the excess of harvest is due to having dedicated personnel responsible for transporting wood back from Huimin town.
With 250 cubic units of wood, Cheng Yang can built two buildings. Cheng Yang used 100 units to build the Grocery store, while the rest are used to construct level 1 residences.
Cheng Yang isn’t considering using all the woods to construct shops, since its current role is nothing more than selling a few items. As for learning craft skills, at this stage Luo Feng village has no more than a few people that can have sufficient power value to purchase the corresponding recipe or drawing, let alone have enough power value to purchase the items needed to continuously used the craft skill*.[T/N: Should be like those vials Cheng Yang needed whenever he wants to produced mana potion.]
In fact, Cheng Yang wanted to build the wall first, because the scope of the level 1 wall is just too small, and fragile against more advanced order monsters attack. But level 2 walls requires 500 cubic units of wood to be built, which Cheng Yang temporarily haven’t managed to scrambled up, therefore he first used this portion of the wood to construct the residences.
After these people donated their wood to the village, each respectively received nearly 20 points of power value, which also include those responsible for transporting. In this regard, the world’s rules is very fair.
However, now all these Carpenters earned power value went into the hands of Cheng Yang, increasing his power value.
Originally, Cheng Yang intended to temporarily left these power value for them to use, but taking fairness into account, he decided to take the power value back. Cheng Yang’s total power value has again reached 2,900 points, most of which are from the killing the enchanted beasts today. The power values obtained from these people returning the power value is only around 400 points.
At night, after Cheng Yang let all the refugees settled down, he ordered Luo Feng village’s five teams to go out and hunt. Specifically looking for enchanted beasts to kill, in order to satisfy the territory’s population food demand. As for the staple food and fast food they obtained these past few days, Cheng Yang left them aside for a rainy day.
As for himself, after dividing 2000 power values into two parts and giving it to selected professions, he took five men into the jungle. For professions in the early days of the apocalypse, every minute is precious. They are able to accumulate more power values, making their growth more beneficial.
The five people together with Cheng Yang are either a team captain or vice captain, who Cheng Yang put his focus into training. In addition to lending them power value for their cultivation, giving them opportunities to gain more power value is also very necessary. So when these people grow up in the future, they will inevitably contributed more power value to Cheng Yang and the territory.
It was only until close to 2 AM did Cheng Yang returned to Luo Feng village. At this time, his power value has reached more than 1,700 points, enough for tonight’s cultivation.
The next morning, after clearing the instance and upgrading the statues, Cheng Yang once again set off with a team to save people from Xiangcheng city..
In the morning, the operation also went very smoothly. They were able to reached a total of five rescue points, successfully rescuing Lee Wanshan’s family, and another profession’s family. But in the afternoon, they ran into a bit of trouble.
A profession’s parents were unexpectedly being held hostages.
The reason is simple, after the arrival of the apocalypse, some strong able-body people had their inner demons unleashed. They formed gangs, coerced people with no ability to revolt, and threatened them to search for food, while they themselves remain hiding in a safe place indulging in pleasure. The profession’s parents are examples of such people being coerced.
When Cheng Yang and the others rushed inside hideout, the rogues has yet to seen with their own eyes what Chang Yang and the rest were capable of doing. Although they know that these people are difficult to deal with, they weren’t particularly worried. After knowing these people came to find someone, they immediately took the profession’s parents as hostage. Holding a knife to each of the hostage’s throat, they demanded Cheng Yang and others hand over all of their food.
Can people like them threatened Cheng Yang? Obviously, it’s impossible. Before the other side can realized what happened, his body turned into a streamer, and in just a breath of time, knocked the knives away from the two rogues’ hands.
The following matter was simple, when dealing with such people, Cheng Yang will never relent. One by one a magic missile was fired off, rapidly eliminating these robbers.
Cheng Yang’s violent method has frightened many people, including a few professions. Previously, Cheng Yang is often in front of them smiling and laughing, and although he is ruthless when dealing with monsters, but towards people has been very kind. But now, looking at the scenes that is taking place in front of them, it has totally changed their mind. Cheng Yang isn’t a kind person, his good nature just varies with dealing with certain people.
While these people are still dealing with their shock, Cheng Yang calmly handle the matter. After everything is solved, together with the professions under his command, he moved on.
Since the route Cheng Yang selected deliberately avoided Xiangcheng city’s main city, they have yet to have an encounter with any military personnel. But, as they closer and closer to the city center, Cheng Yang believed meeting with a few military personnel will only be a matter of time.
Cheng Yang don’t want to meet with these people face to face now, so in the process of advancing has gradually become more cautious.
Until 5 PM, Cheng Yang has yet to see a single military personnel in sight, it seems he has overestimated the other side’s advance.
Now the rescue points to the south of Xiangcheng city has mostly been finished. Cheng Yang decided to bypass the east side tomorrow, and go directly to the north of Xiangcheng city to conduct the search and rescue operation. Although this will make the team walk more along the way, but it will allow the team to save more people when returning..
After returning to Luo Feng village at night, the four main statues has finished upgrading all of the properties. They were all without exception promoted to level 3.
Building name: Magician statue
Level: Level 3
Enhance Health (level 3, not yet research): Increase the health of all magicians transfer under this statue by 11%. Upgrade condition: 500 power values
Enhance Mana (level 3, not yet research): Increase the mana of all magicians transfer under this statue by 11%. Upgrade condition: 500 power values

Enhance Magic Defense (level 3, not yet research): Increase the magic defense of all magician transfer under this statue by 11%. Upgrade Condition: 500 power values
Wind Shackle: Bind enemies with less attack power than oneself. Have a duration of 2 seconds with a cooldown of 1 minute. The higher the skill level, the longer the binding, and the shorter the cooldown time. Learning condition: High-order sorcerer’s apprentice, 200 power values.
Transfer Quota: 51/206
The changes to the profession statues are very big after upgrading to level 3. First, the properties bonus were raised to 11%; of course, they have to first be upgraded before they can play a role, otherwise it will only have a level 2 property bonus. In addition, the power value required for upgrading properties has also greatly increased. For the four main profession statues to be upgrade to level 4, it would need up 10,000 points of power value.
Of course, the biggest changes brought forth by the level 3 statues is the addition of a learnable skill. This skill isn’t the same as the magic missile, the magic missile skill is automatically learned after transferring, and this skill requires power value to learn. In this regard, the wind shackle skill is somewhat similar to the priest’s Angel Inspiration skill. Angel Inspiration belong to the inheritance skill, but the Wind Shackle is an ordinary skill.
The last change is the number of people that can be transferred, originally it was 51 people, directly increasing to 206 people, a full increase of more than fourfold. As you can imagine, in the not too distant future, Luo Feng village’s strength will be greatly enhanced.
However, this time Cheng Yang is going through an inner-struggle, should he continue to upgrade the profession statues? Or first gathered the needed 20,000 points of power value to upgrade the territory level.
After a brief thought, Cheng Yang decided to proceed with upgrading the profession statues’ properties.
Such upgrades won’t consumed all the power value obtained each day, and the remaining territory power value is also sufficient enough to transfer a large number of people. Secondly, after the transfer quota is completely used, Luo Feng village will have more than 800 professions, the power value harvested by these people will be very big; and after Luo Feng village has the donation function, they only need to contribute a day’s worth of power value, which would be a great help for upgrading Luo Feng village.
As the number of professions in the territory increased, the more obvious the benefits can be seen from professions’ statues bonuses.
Cheng Yang without hesitation, immediately chose to upgrade the four main statues “mana”, and the Priest statue “health”.
Currently, the Priest statue has completed upgrading the level 2 “mana”, “magic attack” and “divine”, these three properties. After another three properties are upgraded, the Priest statue can be upgraded to level 3.
Next, Cheng Yang began making arrangement for transferring personnel. Presently, Luo Feng village’s population has exceeded 10,000, a part of the increase are from people brought back from Xiangcheng city, and a part from Huimin town rescued back.Choosing hundreds of people for transfer is very easy.
