Chapter 79: Someone Came
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
According to Grand Magi, they had found more than four Frost Lotuses in the Snow Domain.
If Qin Ruo agreed to help, he would get a fifth of the amount of Frost Lotus gathered as his payment. During the mission, the four of them would take responsibility for safety.
Qin Ruo was tempted upon hearing this. He would only get one portion, but even if there were only five Frost Lotuses, he could get at least 1,000 gold coins through this mission…
Getting from Savis Town to the Snow Domain only took half an hour at most. This was a good opportunity to earn 1,000 gold coins in just half an hour, so why should he not go?
Nodding his head, Qin Ruo finally accepted the Ignis Swordmaster, Grand Magi and his friends’ request. After taking care of all the formalities, Qin Ruo went to the bank for a while to deposit his gold coins and Violetjade Fruit. Only then did he leave town with them.
Before they got out of the town, Qin Ruo did not forget to tell Grand Magi to inform his Bowmaster friend to be more careful and alert. This was to prevent any Bandits from coming near them. After all, this was still Savis Town. With matters regarding Cayman and Crackpot unsolved, Crackpot especially would be thinking of all kinds of ways to get his revenge on him. Therefore, Qin Ruo did not dare let his guard down.
Grand Magi looked at him curiously. “You like PvP?”
After saying that, he immediately laughed and added, “Haha, look at what I’m saying. How could you’engage in PvP when you’re just a Tier 3 player? Rest assured, no one will dare to touch you with us here.”
Qin Ruo was speechless when he heard the first half of his sentence.
Feeling depressed for a while, he finally repressed his urge to clarify the fact about him not knowing how to engage in PvP.
‘Forget it. It’s already two in the morning, so Crackpot may not even be online…’
In addition, it only took about half an hour to arrive at the Snow Domain, and his own luck had not been bad recently. Thus, he may not be so unlucky to meet him during that period.
As for knowing how to engage in PvP or not, Qin Ruo felt lazy about explaining it. Compared to those in Tier 4, Tier 3 Classes were indeed regarded as rookies who knew nothing about PvP—he himself was just a little better at control techniques, and could only be considered slightly stronger among rookies.
This way of thinking made Qin Ruo feel a bit better. He exited the town and headed north with the four of them, entering the world of ice and snow.
Qin Ruo was quite lucky. Since Savis Town was located near the sea, the humidity in nearby areas was generally high. The only exception was the Snow Domain. It consisted of a vast area of ice, which was most suitable for Aquamancers to cast spells.
In this area, Qin Ruo could freely do whatever he wanted with his spells… Even when it came to dealing with several Frost-Type Beasts, he could still handle them easily.
However, in order to prove that he was truly a rookie, Qin Ruo did not do anything in battles except cast a few Aquaheal spells on Grand Magi along the way. This drew more resentment from the male and female player who despised him from the beginning. If it were not for the fact that the combination of “Advanced Gathering worker and Rookie” was hard to find, they would have probably chased him away on the spot.
Qin Ruo knew all of this. While he was not a guy who liked to withstand negative emotions, he was also not a rash person. As long as they did not express their resentment in an undisguised manner, he would not quit such an advantageous “temporary part-time job”—or else, where could one find a job that offered more than 2000 RMB in an hour?
Moreover, his employer “Grand Magi” and his younger sister “Violetmoon Devilite” were quite nice; at least, they were sensible and did not give Qin Ruo the long face for no reason. At this point, Qin Ruo acted as if the two individuals at the back did not exist. He followed Grand Magi and Violetmoon Devilite from behind, helping them from time to time in a rather leisurely manner.
The four of them revealed battle capabilities that were fairly good along the way. Grand Magi’s melee combat was not that of a novice. At his worst, he brought out the vigor and traits of an Ignis Swordmaster; Violetmoon Devilite’s healing spells were expertly cast and very timely. They were even boosted with Psyslash in her spare moments. As for the pair behind, their abilities were poorer and their time was mostly spent on posing, image construction, and despising Qin Ruo. Yet, this particular group managed to reach the depth of the forest without encountering any serious danger.
After they walked for about ten minutes in the forest full of hanging icicles, Grand Magi, who was leading the group, finally stopped. However, the situation they faced did not seem to be a pleasant one. Not far from where Grand Magi was heading, there was an area where huge chunks of ice were cluttered together. Unfortunately, a group of ten was already there.
Qin Ruo’s heart sank.
Grand Magi nodded his head with a heavy heart. Apparently, he never thought that the place would be taken over by others in the short time that they were away.
” Huh… Looks like our efforts were in vain.” Qin Ruo sighed, rubbing his nose gloomily. All the emotions that accompanied him on his way were no longer present—players would not miss out on such a high-tier raw ingredient if they found the Frost Lotuses.
Violetmoon Devilite observed the place attentively for a while, then she came up to them and said, “Don’t worry. The location where the Frost Lotuses grow is quite hidden. We didn’t even discover them when we were leveling up. We only found them when we were taking a break, so maybe… the Frost Lotuses haven’t been discovered yet.”
The rest of them nodded in abundance.
“Let’s go there now!”
As soon as Grand Magi finished his sentence, he was stopped by the other male player, Grandiose Dragon.
“We can’t just go there. What if they find out about the Frost Lotuses? They won’t let us go so easily then.”
Hearing this, Qin Ruo glanced at him in surprise. He never knew that he had such awareness in other aspects… Tier 5 raw ingredients for magic potions would value over 1,000 RMB if there were really more than four of them. If normal players discovered the Frost Lotuses and became greedy, there was no saying what would happen next.
“How about we wait until they finish leveling up?” the one who spoke was the last female player, Blue Princess.
Qin Ruo felt pity for her as he gave her a mild look. She had a pretty nice-looking face and gorgeous figure, but unfortunately, these features did not come with a brain…
“I don’t have that much time to waste. Just think of a reason to get near them. Then all of you can be in charge of confusing and getting their attention in order to cover me as I gather the Frost Lotuses…”
In contrast to his previously subdued and silent attitude, Qin Ruo came up with a solution straight away without hesitation. With a cold expression, he said to the four dumbfounded individuals, “Tell me the exact location of the Frost Lotuses!”
