Chapter 96: MP Potion—The Bottom Line
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After deliberating and staring at Qin Ruo for a long time, Black Market Trader did not immediately offer a price. Instead, he looked around and brought the suspicious Qin Ruo to an inn.
Fortunately, Black Market Trader did send a trade offer to Qin Ruo this time. Otherwise, Qin Ruo would have thought he had other intentions. *Cough.* There’s no way a pure person like me would not get the wrong idea because of this indecent-looking dude…
However, when he accepted the trade offer, the items that Black Market Trader put in the trade window made Qin Ruo’s heart beat violently!
There were five magic potion bottles of different colors in the trade window. They were completely different from the ordinary red HP Potion and blue MP Potion—each of them had a magical sparkle with swirly colors. From the transparent bottle, he could even see the liquid inside seemed to swirl on its own.
This guy actually had this kind of thing?
Qin Ruo gazed at Black Market Trader in astonishment, whose expression changed from a sinister one to solemness and anguish. Black Market Trader’s decision impressed Qin Ruo completely, changing his perception about him.
Who in the world is this guy?
As far as he knew, a Novice Chemist could only concoct some ordinary HP Potion(S) and HP Potion (L) as well as some basic MP Potion (S). An Intermediate Chemist could concoct all HP and MP Potions, as well as regular Antidotes.
Advanced Chemists were able to concoct all types of HP and MP Potions, Antidotes, and Vitality Potions that could increase a single attribute.
In any case, the Vitality Potion was milky white, which was completely different from the five colors before him…
Qin Ruo had never seen these five bottles of potions before. Besides, there was no such news on the official forum. It was thus impossible for a regular Advanced Chemist to concoct these potions.
Does that mean this guy is a Master Chemist?!
Qin Ruo was startled by his own guess. That can’t be!
A Master Chemist? That’s a wanted Class!—even the Seven Great Leagues would certainly hold on to them forever! How is it that they would let him just run about and cooperate with a merchant player?
He instantly scanned the attributes of these five mysterious magic potions.
The feeling of doubt and curiosity in Qin Ruo’s heart was becoming stronger and stronger!
These five potions were called Intelligence Potion, Super MP Potion, Advanced Vitality Potion, Agility Potion, and Strength Potion respectively.
But unlike the ordinary magic potions, there was an extra line of information below these potions’ names…
For instance, the Agility Potion had an additional tag about its Quality, which was 6 points.
For Qin Ruo, who relied on the excellent quality raw materials, he knew that 6 points of Quality was definitely not a good thing. It was merely a passing grade. Iif the Quality was just 1 point lower, it would be considered as an inferior item…
So, this explained the matter!
This guy Black Market Trader probably obtained these unwanted low-quality failures from an unknown Master Chemist then pretends to regard it as a treasure to scam the Violetjade Fruit off me.
Hatred ran deep within Qin Ruo’s heart. Frankly speaking, the attributes of these potions were too alluring…
The Advanced Vitality Potion had 7-point quality which provided 35 Vitality for 30 minutes. (According to this calculation, this means that an Advanced Vitality Potion with 10-point quality could provide at most 50 Vitality.)
Tsk tsk. If I drink it, my HP will instantly increase by 350, which is almost double my current HP. It would be even more incredible if a Berserker drinks it.
(For Elementalists, 1 point of Vitality increases 10 HP. For Berserkers, 1 point of Vitality increases 18 HP.)
Intelligence Potion was slightly better—8-point Quality which provided 16 Intelligence for 30 minutes, which was equivalent to 16 Magic Attack, 8 Magic Defense and 16 MP.
Should I exchange these magic potions?
Qin Ruo hesitated, wondering whether it was worth accepting the offer. There were no such attribute-boosting potions on the market. Although the Quality was not very good, their attributes were still enticing. He might be able to sell them at a good price.
However, Qin Ruo was uncertain how many potions could be concocted using the Violetjade Fruit. At this moment he was just looking at Black Market Trader with uncertainty, waiting for him to speak.
Little did he know that Black Market Trader had the same thought running through his mind. From Qin Ruo’s expression, Black Market Trader could not tell whether he wanted them or not. He thus waited for the other party to break the ice. Only then would he decide whether to add the final two slightly better magic potions.
These bad Quality products were not really that important to him.
The most important thing was Qin Ruo…
As a Tier 3 Aquamancer, he had a rare Grade 3 Herb with him. What did that mean?
It might mean that Qin Ruo was likely to have information about Grade 3 Herbs’ spawn points or that he had the strength to gather Grade 3 Herbs.
As long as he could get more high-grade Herbs, he would be able to reach the level of Master Chemist. When that happens, he would not have to deal with people any longer and could still make a lot of money! When that happens… using the power of Chemist to summon a great storm…would not be a problem…
Hence, in any case, he could afford to give these rare items to Qin Ruo. In the worst case scenario, he was even willing to go to his bottom line.
In just one minute, both of them had a thousand thoughts in their mind.
Finally, Qin Ruo took the first step and asked, “Do you have more?”
Initially, Qin Ruo just wanted to break the silence of the room. Regardless, Qin Ruo’s question caused Black Market Trader to misunderstand. As a result, the other party quickly grabbed two bottles of 9-point quality Advanced Vitality Potion and 9-point quality Intelligence Potion from his inventory and put them into the trade window. He then gritted his teeth and said, “How about it, these potions are all for you. If you accept this offer I’ll even give you half of the potions that I concoct from the Violetjade Fruit. As long as you continue providing me with such Herbs in the future!” In the end, Black Market Trader went with his bottom line.
