The Four Mega Quests (1)
Just how charming Ling Shui Ruo was, she herself had no idea. At least, she had unknowingly caused someone like Ling Chen to, for her, become a completely different person. For her, he had given up many things he definitely would not have given up in the past.
Her voice, every sentence she spoke, as well as her demeanour and temperament caused people to like her. Her arrival had caused her to become the focus of everyone. As they were all girls, they did not feel distant or unfamiliar when chatting, and felt like that they had all been friends for a long time.
They all knew that Ling Shui Ruo had just left Novice Village, and had wanted to take her to change her class. However, when Ling Shui Ruo revealed her [Fairy Priest] class, they had all been shocked out of their minds.
“Hidden Profession! Such a powerful Priest… Heavens! It must be many, many times stronger than normal Priests!”
“Looks like our Heart’s Dream has a very, very powerful Priest now. With Ruo Ruo, we can fight with no worries now.” Yun Meng Xin said while smiling.
“Us five girls, big sister Meng Xin and big sister Bing Yao are close quarter combat, Su Su is ranged combat, I’m a Mage and now we have Ruo Ruo. If we can find a Shield Bearer, then we would have a perfect team!” Xiao Qi said while grinning.
“But, what about big brother Ling Tian?” Su’Er asked in a small voice.
Xiao Qi wrinkled her nose, “Big brother Ling Tian is way too overpowered, if he’s there, then we won’t have anything to do. When we go on quests, we need to get rid of big brother Ling Tian, otherwise there won’t be any danger or excitement anymore.”
Ling Chen curled his lips, but didn’t say anything.
Meng Xin and the rest of them felt that what Xiao Qi had said was quite true. Every time there was a monster or a group of monsters, they would fight them to the best of their abilities. However, if Ling Chen was present, if he called out Xi Ling, all she had to do was flap her wings and mobs and mobs of monsters would be easily destroyed. The rest of the girls would have nothing to do. Before, they were discussing how if Ling Chen’s true power was displayed in front of everyone, who knew how big the waves would be.
“That’s right, big brother Ling Tian!” Xiao Qi stood up from her chair, and ran to Ling Chen’s side. Her two large eyes sparkled as she looked at him, “The Hidden Profession Ruo Ruo has must have come from you right? Do you have any other Hidden Professions? You have one, Ruo Ruo has one, big sister Meng Xin has one. There’s still big sister Bing Yao, Su Su and me, Qi Qi… we also want a Hidden Profession! Give us one each as well.”
Ling Chen’s mouth slightly tensed, “Do you think Hidden Professions are heads of cabbage, and you can just find them all over the ground?!”
Come to think of it, Ling Chen did indeed have a Hidden Profession class change scroll… it was the [Wind Spirit Marksman] that had dropped from the Zephyr Bird. Su’Er was an Archer, and thus could use this scroll. However, Ling Chen still did not choose to take out the scroll.
The reason he had given Yun Meng Xin a Hidden Profession was because she was the reason why he had joined the virtual world; she was the person he was directly trying to help. He had only known everyone else for a short period of time, and could not base the decision of giving something so valuable on such a short period of time.
“But, I really want one… big sister Bing Yao, Su Su, I’m sure you guys want one too, right?” Xiao Qi grabbed Ling Chen’s hand, acting like a little sister who was trying to convince her older brother to buy her something she wanted by acting cute. The power of beauty was very strong, but even if it was stronger by ten times, Ling Chen still wouldn’t be able to take anything out. He could only exasperatedly say, “In a game, only a few Hidden Professions might be found. It’s really not easy at all to find one. How about this, if I really do find one in future, I’ll immediately give it to you, alright?”
Of course, Xiao Qi had known that the chance for a Hidden Profession class change scroll was extremely low. If it was that easy to find, then there would be players with Hidden Professions all over the place. She never expected to really get a Hidden Profession from Ling Chen just like that; to be able to get this promise from Ling Chen, she was already very satisfied, “As a man, you need to keep your promises! Remember, if you find any Elementalist Hidden Professions, you definitely have to give it to me!”
Heart’s Dream now had six members. Out of the six members, three had Hidden Professions, and two were in the top 10 of the Player Level Rankings. The Ling Chen who had become the core of Heart’s Dream was number 1 on the Player Level Rankings, no less. A guild with little to no foundation and fame, and had not even been officially established yet, surprisingly had quite an impressive line-up.
“In that case, what should we do now? Right, let’s take Ruo Ruo to have a look around Azure Dragon City. Azure Dragon City’s so large, and there are a lot of fun things to do.”
“How about this,” Yun Meng Xin said while smiling, “After coming to Azure Dragon City, we still haven’t had a taste of the delicacies here. Today, let’s spend a bit extravagantly, and have a nice banquet.”
“Good idea! I completely agree!”
Yun Meng Xin’s suggestion received positive responses from everyone else, so they decided to go with this plan. Just as they were about to leave, a system announcement rang out in everyone’s ears.
“Ding… China Region Announcement. Over 50% of players have completed their first class change in the China Region. The China Region Mercenary system has been released, from now on players can go to the Mercenary Registration in large cities to register a Mercenary Group.
The China Region Guild system has been released, players with over 1000 Fame and have a Guild Creation Token can go to the Mayor’s Residence in large cities to create a Guild.
The China Region Guild Rankings have been released (Guilds are ranked according to their time of creation).”
“Ding… China Region Announcement. Over 50% of players have completed their first class change in the China Region. China Region’s 4 Mega Quests have been released. The 4 Mega Quests are for strong players who enjoy dangerous quests that push them to their limits. Every Mega Quest has extremely high difficulty. After completing a Mega Quest, players will receive bounteous rewards. The information regarding the 4 Mega Quests have been sent to every player’s Quest Page. It is recommended that brave players who wish to challenge the 4 Mega Quests make sufficient preparations. Entry requirements: After creating a group, the group leader will choose the Mega Quest. The group will then be teleported to the location of the Mega Quest.
The Mercenary system and Guild system had finally been released. Although both were player groups, a Mercenary Group had much more freedom than a Guild. Mercenary Groups could be created or disbanded at any time, and did not have as many requirements or restrictions. However, because of this, they would forever remain as small-scale entities. The creation of Guilds was much more complicated, as well as serious, than the creation of Mercenary Groups. A few minutes after the System Announcement had ended, a player initiated Region Announcement sounded out.
“Ding… player “Yan Huang’s Shadow” initiated Region Announcement: Yan Huang Alliance is currently requesting for a Guild Creation Token. If any player has found a Guild Creation Token, please contact me directly; price is not an issue. Our Yan Huang Alliance represents China’s power and glory. In Mystic Moon, we vow to grow even stronger, and make the entire world tremble before our mighty Yan Huang Alliance!”
A Region Announcement could transmit a message to hundreds of millions of players at the same time. As such, initiating such an announcement was very costly- an announcement, restricted to one minute, costed an extraordinary ten thousand gold!!
Even if it was the Yan Huang Alliance, being able to fork out ten thousand gold at the current stage of the game was not easy for them. However, in order to be the first to obtain a Guild Creation Token and become the first official guild, they were willing to make sacrifices. Guilds were ranked according to their time of creation. This meant that the first Guild to be created, unless it was destroyed, would forever remain at the top of the Guild Rankings. As such, it was obvious why everyone was so desperate to obtain the first Guild Creation Token. Having the number 1 position and having any lower position were completely different things.
After the Yan Huang Alliance’s announcement sounded out, another player initiated announcement rang out…
“Ding… player “Gloomy Ecstasy” initiated Region Announcement: Skyfall Dynasty is currently looking for a Guild Creation Token. Our Three Heavenly Kings promise that whoever gives us the first Guild Creation Token, they will immediately become a core member of Skyfall Dynasty, enjoying the same benefits as a core member before Mystic Moon closes. You will never have to worry about money again…”
Immediately after the Guild system had been released, the fight to become the first official Guild had started. There was destined to be a blood-filled showdown between the Yan Huang Alliance and the Skyfall Dynasty, these two great powers. To them, their only competitors were the other side; they did not believe that there were any other guilds with the power or resources to acquire the first Guild Creation Token.
Of course, these were only the concerns of the big figures of the Guilds. The attention of all the other players was placed upon the ‘4 Mega Quests’.
“Looks like we have something to do now.” The group that had just been about to leave to have a luxurious banquet stopped. Ling Chen opened his Quests Page, and showed it to everyone, “Let’s have a look at these Quests. Maybe doing a Quest together wouldn’t be too bad either.”
