“Aren’t you planning to give it a try?” Lin Ye smiled.
“Forget about me.”
Wang Qiang smiled bitterly. The trauma he had from the last time he visited a Haunted House was too great.
He changed the topic and continued, “But my lord, when can we have heavy machinery? Or heavy armors. Even aircraft or cannons would be great.”
After speaking, his face revealed a look of hope.
Ever since the end of the Elevation Hall, his Class as a Mechanic had been unlocked, but because of the limited resources and equipment, he was unable to show his value. This made him feel vexed but also anxious.
Currently, the few new human lords in the territory all had their own value.
For example, Xun Mingyuan had become the manager of the Lin clan. Any food, clothing, and payment had to go through him. Everyone wanted to curry favor from him;
Zhang Liang was the lord’s favorite.
He was in charge of all kinds of matters and had a certain authority. He was the person with the highest authority on the human lords’ side other than Lin Ye;
Jiang Gong was the chief engineer of the territory.
Currently, he had already created the world’s first toilet blueprint and was highly regarded.
He was leading a group of humans who had construction foundations to quickly create new Merit Blueprints;
Zhang Bao’er was the territory’s teacher. She taught the Chinese language and was deeply loved by the people of the territory.
Dong Wei was not bad either. After awakening his talent as a director, he was given command of the performance after the meal in the territory.
Usually, he would bring Chu Meng, Liu Yuan, and a few new young students to film videos and practice singing and dancing happily…
Therefore, other than Niu Wei who was already dead, he was the only one who had nothing to do. He felt a little lonely.
“There will be a chance. Perhaps there will be something you want in the next ancient ruin.”
Lin Ye smiled. He understood Wang Qiang’s thoughts.
It was precisely because of this that he specially called him here this time.
According to Song Kuaidi, Xu Yuan had discovered a treasure land suspected to be an ancient ruin. There were many strange things there.
It looked like a mechanical beast from ancient times.
Thus, he felt that it was important for him to bring Wang Qiang along on this trip.
His talent as a mechanic gave him special insights and abilities regarding mechanical objects or life forms.
He had a vague feeling that this might be an opportunity for Wang Qiang.
There were not many human lords which he had faith. Wang Qiang was one of the people he focused on nurturing.
He hated that his territory was developing too slowly now.
Otherwise, a Mechanic like Wang Qiang would be a terrifying class in this world.
“Let’s hope so,” Wang Qiang also revealed a look of hope.
Right at this moment, Luo Feng’s uncle, Luo Yu, rode an Earth Demonic Bear out from the path on his right and returned to the platform. He said with a serious expression, “My lord, we have killed a hundred advanced class 3 zombie dog beasts and found a Gold Treasure Chest, but…”
At this point, he paused and said, “You should come and take a look yourself.”
Lin Ye’s interest was piqued. For him to actually want him to go personally, it must be something important.
“Let’s go!” He immediately rode on Little Green and grabbed the unwilling Yang Fusheng as he rushed over.
At the entrance to the right, blood flowed like a river. Corpses of Zombie Dog Beasts were everywhere, and most of them had a hole in their foreheads. They must have died under Luo Feng’s Blood Shadow Battle Blade.
“Over there, and over there. There are bronze and silver treasure chests. Send someone to bring them back.”
Along the way, hint kept sounding. Killing zombies and zombie dog beasts was the same. Treasure chests would drop and the probability was much higher than zombies of the same level.
After walking and stopping for nearly a thousand meters, Lin Ye found a total of 20 plus additional treasure chests, which was considered an unexpected harvest.
Soon, the end of the passage was illuminated by several strong LED torchlights.
Luo Zheng was standing on both sides with a few dozen people from the Luo Clan, his expression grave.
“My lord, you’re here.”
Seeing Lin Ye jump down from Little Green’s body, Luo Feng hurriedly went forward to greet him.
“What did you discover?” Lin Ye asked curiously as he followed Luo Feng’s lead and narrowed his eyes.
At the corner was a corpse pit.
Inside human corpses were piled up. Some were ordinary human lords, while others were wearing standard armor.
Obviously, there had been others who had attacked this place before they came, but unfortunately, their combat strength was insufficient, and they suffered heavy casualties.
In the end, not only did they not obtain any treasure chests, they even lost a large number of lives and were dragged in by the Zombie Dog Beasts as food.
“My lord, look at the armor and clothes at the side.” Luo Feng grabbed a few sky-blue battle clothes that were covered in blood and bite marks from the pile of corpses and threw them on the ground.
“A top Class 2 blue armor?”
Lin Ye narrowed his eyes. “It wasn’t sold on our market page, and… they had quite a lot of them.”
Currently, most of what his market sold was Intermediate, Advanced, and Top Class 2 Blue Tier equipment which had to be refined and strengthened through blue iron ore.
This kind of upgraded top-tier equipment was not weaker than ordinary beginner Class 3 Purple Tier equipment. Hence, he would usually keep top-tier Class 2 Blue Tier equipment.
Currently, there were still some Class 1 soldiers who did not have Class 3 Purple Tier equipment. They were temporarily equipped with Class 2 blue tier equipment and were used as patrol soldiers.
Therefore, logically speaking, there should not be so much top Class 2 blue equipment in the market now.
The only explanation was that the other party might have found a way to obtain a large number of bronze and silver treasure chests.
And they also found a blue iron ore for equipment improvement.
If this was true, then the other party had to mine the blue iron ore. To mine those, they had to build a Level 2 mining factory.
The blueprint for the Level 1 Mining Factory was given to him by the bunker when it became Level 5.
Class 2 blue iron ore required a mining factory of a corresponding level. In other words, the other party’s bunker was at least Level 6.
This was ridiculous.
Because of the 100xReward, Lin Ye developed rapidly in the early stages when resources were scarce. He became the world’s number one lord and was the first to enter the tribal era.
But even so, he was only Level 10 now.
The other party was actually Level 6, which meant that it had a population limit of 8,000.
Just the thought of it was terrifying. If he did not have 100xReward, he might not even be able to match up to that person.
“Zhan Mingyue’s men?” This was the only person Lin Ye could think of.
Up until now, the most mysterious and threatening person he had come into contact with was none other than Zhan Mingyue, a high-ranking official of China.
Therefore, he couldn’t help but think of that person.
After all, other than them, who else could have known so much information in the early stages and attacked this three-star treasure cave before the fourth day?
He didn’t believe that the other party was like him and could threaten Jiang Chen to obtain information from them.
In summary, there was a 90% chance that the higher-ups of China, who were also the stowaways mentioned by Jiang Chen controlled the secrets and information of this strange world.
“I’ve counted them carefully. There are fifty-eight corpses in the right passage alone. I wonder how many there will be in the other passageways.” Luo Feng said in a low voice.
“Put on gloves and search their bodies. Be careful of bacterial infection.” Lin Ye thought for a moment and took out hundreds of pairs of disposable gloves from the Reputation Shop. He handed them to Luo Feng and asked him to pass them to the other warriors of the Luo clan.
“Everyone else, collect the treasure chests for me first!”
Soon, the group of people started moving. They searched for treasure chests and information.
“My lord, the gold treasure chest has a lock.”
Not far away, Wang Qiang called out.
Lin Ye walked over.
The treasure cave had a stone table the size of a millstone. On it was a treasure chest that flickered with a weak golden luster.
Taking a closer look, a Gold Treasure Chest was smaller than a Bronze or Silver Treasure Chest. The carvings on its surface were more detailed and elegant, giving it an artistic hint.
Perhaps this was the difference between Class 4 and 5. Be it from the inside or from the outside, there was a qualitative change.
Unfortunately, this thing was similar to potential chains. At Class 5, it would be restricted by seals.
Faint energy formed chains that could be seen with the naked eye, firmly holding the golden treasure chest to the stone table.
“No, I can’t take it off,” Wang Qiang tried his best to remove the treasure chest. His face was already flushed red, but the treasure chest did not budge.
“Let me give it a try. My battle aura cultivation technique has already reached the peak of Class 4. It’s incomparably pure and in terms of strength, it’s definitely not inferior to Commander Tru.”
On the other side, Luo Feng was also curious as he brought his uncle Luo Yu over.
“Brother Luo Feng, be careful. This thing is a bit strange.” Wang Qiang shook his numb hands and moved aside with a smile.
Luo Feng nodded and took his stance.
He compressed his golden core and shouted!
Deep blue-colored battle aura erupted, and like a Super Saiyan who had fallen into a bitter battle, his entire body was bathed in the light of battle aura.
With the power of a top Class 4 physical body combined with battle aura secret techniques, the energy locked on the surface of the golden treasure chest tightly, emitting a crisp buzzing sound.
Unfortunately, the two of them were in a stalemate for a long time. The chains did not budge.
Ten seconds later, Luo Feng sighed as the battle aura glow on his body dissipated. “No, it should be limited by the power of law. After all, with the baptism of the four Sacred Halls, even if I don’t use the Blood God’s Possession, my strength should still be comparable to an ordinary intermediate Class 5, but I can’t do anything about it.”
“Uncle, do you want to give it a try?” He turned his head to look at Luo Yu.
“Forget about me. If even you can’t do it, wouldn’t it be embarrassing for me to go up and try?” Luo Yu shook his head.
If it was in the past, he might have tried it with a competitive spirit.
However, since he was recruited last night, the consecutive setbacks made his confidence suffer.
Among them, the strongest was his nephew, Luo Feng. Before he came, he was a top Class 1 soldier.
Yet, in just three days, the other party was already much stronger than him. This was too humiliating for him.
“Haha, at least you know your place. With just a few weaklings like you, of course, you can’t.”
“Everyone present, other than me, only Lin Ye has the qualifications to get it.”
At this moment, Yang Fusheng suddenly interjected.
With that, everyone’s gaze landed on him.
“Why are you all looking at me? You can choose whether to believe me or not!”
As he spoke, Yang Fusheng rolled his eyes and continued watching the Balala energy on his tablet. He had no intention of explaining himself.
“Is it because I broke through the limit of Class 5?” Lin Ye had a vague guess in his heart.
“My lord, will it be dangerous?” Wang Qiang frowned and asked worriedly.
“It’s okay.” Lin Ye waved his hand, Hint had not given him a warning. It shouldn’t be a problem.
As expected, when his finger touched the gold treasure chest, golden multicolored light immediately flowed out.
The golden energy chain that sealed the treasure chest broke.
