“Be careful. I’m afraid that the combining machine will malfunction occasionally just like the Reinforcer!”
Hearing the reminder of her companion, the woman hiding in her black robe got more cautious.
“Don’t worry. I’ll just try and see if this combining machine is good to use or not!” she said coldly.
At this moment, Yue Bai and some others had just logged into the game.
In the shop, some players such as the masters of the ancient families were busy and would leave as soon as they used up their fatigue points.
At this moment, the young people of the ancient families had logged into the game eagerly.
The girls of the Qingqiu Family led by the white-clothed girl had logged into the game already.
“Ms. Yu, what do you think of the newly-released Outfit Combining Machine? Should we try it?” After all, they had heard Mr. Fang say that the machines could make different clothes so that they could be dressed differently from ordinary mortals.
This was one of the ways that the disciples and members of the ancient families could show their outstanding status.
Obviously, the Qingqiu Family Master hadn’t arrived yet, so the cold-looking white-clothed girl was their leader.
“I must try the ‘Outfit Combining Machine’ personally…” The cold woman said. Then, she suddenly heard an exclamation from behind her.
“Someone is livestreaming? It is about combining outfits using the combining machine!”
“Ugh? Someone is doing it now?” Qingqiu Yu clicked open QQ Livestream. Sure enough, there was one livestream room named ‘Livestreaming Combining Rare Outfits.’
“Should we go in and have a look?” She could take this opportunity to see how the livestream in the shop worked.
Seeing Qingqiu Yu entering the livestream room, the other disciples of the Qingqiu Family followed suit and watched the livestream.
Meanwhile, Yue Bai, Mu Qing, Su Tianji, and some other people who were interested in new outfits had also entered the livestream room.
They saw that the streamer was a female priest who had advanced to the subclass of Mistress.
“Ugh?! So many people?” The mysterious figure in black looked at the bottom-left corner of her screen.
[Su Tianji entered the livestream room.]
[Nalan Mingxue entered the livestream room.]
[Liu Ningyun entered the livestream room.]
[Xi Yue entered the livestream room.]
[Song Qingfeng entered the livestream room.]
[Guo Xiong entered the livestream room.]
[Shui Xianyun gifted you 10 goose eggs.]
A long row of prompts appeared.
“Um? So many people are watching?!” She couldn’t believe it.
“What’s wrong?” The figure who was hidden in a black cloak and sitting next to her immediately looked over.
“I opened the livestream and found that there are many people watching. Someone even gifted me 10 goose eggs?!” Ten goose eggs were equivalent to one crystal; she wouldn’t have spared a glance at it if this was another normal occasion. After all, her status was high.
But now, a glint appeared in her eyes. “We can even gift each other these goose eggs on this so-called internet?!”
“Don’t expose yourself.” The person in the dark cloak warned her.
“Don’t worry!” She put down her virtual reality headset and whispered, “We’re doing a livestream in this corner; no one in the virtual small world will know who we are.”
Then, she put on her virtual reality headset and suddenly saw the messages in the chat on the bottom left corner.
[Girl, in which corner are you doing the livestream?]
[Little Sister, you’re exposed. I’ve found you already.]
[Tell us! Which corner are you guys hiding at?]
[Why are you hiding in a corner? Tell us! What bad things have you done? ]
“…” Covering her mouth, she stared at the comments with widened eyes. “I forgot to turn off the external communication!”
Through external communication, the sounds and messages from the outside could also be transmitted into the internal communication channel…
“Did you guys hear what I said!?”
[Yeah! Every word!]
Bullet comments all came at once.
After a long pause, she remained silent with a dark expression. In mortification, she began buying outfit combining machines.
Mu Qing typed, [Little Sister, don’t be shy! Can you say something?]
Liang Shi said earnestly, [Girl, don’t worry. We are not bad people.]
“…” This livestream room turned silent.
She was torn between turning it off and continuing the livestream; her first livestream experience was extremely poor!
Soon, she bought one Outfit Combining Machine Gift Bag from the shop for 50 crystals. Upon opening the bag, she saw 20 Outfit Combining Machines, a bottle of anti-fatigue potion from Pandemonium, and ten life tokens.
She bought 20 machines for 50 crystals. Does that mean I can make 20 high-level rare outfits?!
“They are quite cheap!” She commented before saying to the person sitting next to her, “We can buy 20 Outfit Combining Machines for only 50 crystals. The bag even contains a bottle of anti-fatigue potion from Pandemonium which can give you 30 fatigue points! It’s a good deal! Do you want to buy one?”
“It contains an anti-fatigue potion?” The black-robed man had been contemptuous of this machine. After hearing that he would get anti-fatigue potion by buying the machines, he immediately entered the shop.
He looked at the Outfit Combining Machine Gift Bag and exclaimed, “It’s true! This gift bag does give an anti-fatigue potion!”
Doesn’t this mean that I will have 30 more fatigue points compared to the others!
“I’ll buy one!” Immediately, he bought one too.
Meanwhile, the woman beside him had begun using Outfit Combining Machines to make new rare outfits.
This man concealed in his black cloak looked at the gift bag in the game.
After talking the potion and getting 30 fatigue points, I still have 20 Outfit Combining Machines. What should I do with them?
Whatever; I will use them and see if I can get anything good.
While thinking that, he put one outfit into the combining machine.
[Please put in two pieces of clothing for the same location on the body?]
“It needs to be for the same location?”
“Ugh? But I don’t have two pieces of clothing for the same location!” For most male players, they only had one set of clothing to cover themselves and not be ugly; this man was the same.
He scratched his head and decided to buy one.
He spent a little more than ten crystals and bought a permanent outfit. After all, temporary outfits couldn’t be combined.
After he put the two outfits into the machine, the combination process began.
Spiritual light lit up on the combining machine while it rumbled…
Then, this avenger received a prompt. [You got a set of Black Knight Chest Armor.]
“Is this the new outfit?”
He looked at it with widened eyes. “How come this set of chest armor looks so familiar?”
No! It looked exactly like one of the outfits except that its color changed!
I put in two sets of outfits and got one set back with a different color?! What the heck is this?!
Meanwhile, the woman who was livestreaming had also begun combining outfits.
A prompt appeared in the livestream room of the mistress. [You got a girly red vest.]
“!!??” The woman froze.
I bought it before! I put in two high-level outfits in and got only one back?!
“…” Her face even darkened.
Meanwhile, the viewers of the livestream also froze.
[How come two outfits became only one?]
[Did it fail just like the Reinforcer? It can do that?]
[One of them was shattered?]
[It got shattered on the first try. What bad luck!]
While reading the bullet comments in the chat, the female priest’s face turned dark. “Just like the Reinforcer, this machine also malfunctions occasionally.”
Then, she sighed in relief and said, “Fortunately, I was just trying it.”
She felt like something wasn’t right as soon as she said that.
Trying? But I bought 20 combining machines!
Since she could get 30 fatigue points if she bought the gift bag of 20 combination machines, she chose this option!
Now that I used one, what should I do with the rest 19 machines?!
Maybe… I should try again?
Fortunately, she had bought many outfits and could use them to combine into new things. Therefore, she opened another combining machine and tossed in two outfits.
They were combined.
[You got a pair of black long pants.]
“!!??” This was something she already had. Another failure?!
Should she continue or not?!
If she stopped, she would still have 18 combining machines left!
If she continued…
With gritted teeth, she said, “I’ll try a few more; I’ll stop if I have more failures!”
[You got a faint-black necklace.] (Failed)
[You got a pair of black long boots.] (Failed)
[You got a blue vest.] (Failed)
“…This is…” Her expression was dark. “There is no way that combining machines can make any rare outfit!”
She had thought that the combining machines would only malfunction occasionally just like the Reinforcer.
Now, she knew how naïve she had been!
They didn’t malfunction occasionally; it seemed like they were malfunctioning consistently!
“This is the last try!” She said with gritted teeth, “If it fails again, I’ll stop and protest to the little shop owner!”
A piece of melodious music sounded by her ear. [You got a black short-sleeved shirt; you got a set of Dark Saint Soul Chest Armor.]
Bullet messages flooded the screen.
[Dark Saint Soul?!]
[Is it a newly-released rare outfit?!]
The dark color and grand design made this set of chest armor different from ordinary ones. The dark-red chest armor looked exquisite and smooth, standing out from other outfits on its own.
More importantly, it had higher attributes and properties compared to advanced outfits, and it possessed the unique set attributes like those of the green set items in Diablo!
[Unfortunately, it’s only one piece of the outfit. If you have a whole set of them, it would look so dashing.]
Seeing that there were many bullet comments in the chat, the female priest continued combining.
Anyway, she still had ten combining machines left, and they would become a waste if she stopped.
She continued with this thought…
At the 19th try, she got a pair of Dark Saint Soul Battle Boots.
At this moment, her stock of over 40 pieces of outfits had dwindled by half.
She had only made two pieces of rare outfits. She took a closer look and realized that she needed all eight pieces of this outfit to get the set bonus!
I’ll buy one more Outfit Combining Machine Gift Bag! She bought another gift bag with that thought, but the fatigue potion could only be used once per day.
She continued trying with these 20 combining machines.
When only half of the 20 combining machines were left, she found that she had run out of outfits!
Since the combination required two outfits for the same location on the body, she… ran out of outfits for the same location!
“Maybe… I should buy some more high-level outfits?”
Soon, Li Xin’er saw the woman engulfed in her black cloak coming to the counter again. “Deposit 1,000 crystals in my card!”
– Half an hour later –
“Deposit 1,000 more crystals for me!”
-One hour later-
“Only two pieces away from my goal. Again!”
“Only one piece away! Again…”
She suddenly froze. “Where are my crystals?!”
To play the games in the shop, she had gotten many of crystals. After all, she had seldom used crystals before. But now they were all gone?!
I’m only one piece away from getting the whole set of this rare outfit! But I ran out of crystals now?!
After thinking for a bit, she slammed a small radiant jade bottle on the counter. “How much crystals can it trade this for? Deposit more crystals in my card…”
Since she had come to this point, she must get this whole rare outfit today!
The viewers watching the livestream fell silent.
They were dumbfounded by what they saw.
Didn’t she say that she will only give it a try?! What is going on?
