Mo Fan began to feel like he had journeyed down a path with no turning back as he and Lingling got busy doing the questionable requests along the streets. However, when he thought about the Hunter Competition next year, in which the hunters with higher points would be grouped into different levels, he tried to comfort himself that he was doing the quests for the sake of accumulating the points he needed.
Luckily, he had the intelligence capsule, Lingling, with him, which made all the quests extremely easy. Within just a week, he had completely fulfilled all the requests, earning a total of five hundred thousand RMB from the bounties. In the past, it would be considered a huge sum to him, but unfortunately, every transaction he needed to rank up past the Intermediate Level would involve millions, or even tens of millions, for a better outcome. His hopes of finding a Soul Seed for his Shadow Element seemed rather impossible!
After settling the quests, Mo Fan returned to school, and quickly found himself with a worse headache. The challenges sent to him had stacked up into a greater pile than the requests in his hunter agency!
Luckily, the challenges were scheduled on the second and fourth weeks of every month. Otherwise, he would have to give his resources up to the challengers.
The resources given by the school were fairly spectacular, including a chance to cultivate inside the Three Step Tower. That was the most attractive reward to Mo Fan, without a doubt. It was the sacred ground for cultivation!
The resources for the hundredth rank were rather satisfying, too. Mo Fan was quite surprised that he was given a Magic Accelerator.
The Magic Tool was fairly unique. It allowed Magicians to align their stars more adeptly, ensuring smooth and less breakable connections. Using the tool to practice would greatly improve learning efficiency. Most importantly, it could shorten the time required to draw and align the stars.
In simpler words, the tool could improve casting speed!
The battles between Magicians seemed complicated, but they were actually very simple. The ones who could cast their magic faster than their opponents would usually gain the upper hand.
If someone like Mo Fan, who had ranked up his Basic Lightning and Fire Spells to the fourth tier, could further improve his casting speed, to the extent that he could cast them by swiping his hands in the air, then he was pretty much unbeatable against Magicians on the same level.
On a side note, Mo Fan was fairly surprised when he learned that the school also provided Fire Element Soul Seeds.
Every time the ranking was updated, the students would receive a certain amount of Soul Seed Pieces. Once they collected enough pieces, if they were lucky enough, they could smelt a Fire Soul Seed from them.
Mo Fan now had one Soul Seed Piece with him. Once he saved up to ten pieces, he would have enough pieces for the smelting.
Similarly, the smelting would require different kinds of Fire Element materials. The better the materials, the higher the success rate. If he managed to smelt a Soul Seed, it would improve his strength significantly!
Mo Fan already had the Rose Flame, thus smelting another Fire Soul Seed would not make any difference. As such, he traded the Fire Element Soul Seed Pieces for Shadow Element Soul Seed Pieces. He was eager to improve his Shadow Element with a Soul Seed.
There was no Soul Seed for the Summoning Element, but the resources a Summoner needed were comparable to other Elements, as the lineage, soul, and flesh of their beasts were already a lot to understand and master. Mo Fan’s resources were still very limited. He could not even afford to buy a young beast, thus his Skill Contract Summoning was left wasted still.
Speaking of which, Mo Fan was desperately in need of money.
Mo Fan had too many things he wanted to improve upon reaching the Intermediate Level. If he could not find a way to fully utilize all his Elements, how could he possibly conquer the school?
Therefore, Mo Fan really needed the resources that the school had given to him. There was no way he would give up on them. He had to find a way to deal with the challenges.
“Students in the top fifty will be given two Soul Seed Pieces and a Fire Element Magic Tool. Ai Tutu, what is this Fire Element Magic Tool useful for?” asked Mo Fan.
“Are you an alien? Everyone knows that the Fire Element Magic Tool is useful for improving the efficiency of your cultivation of the Fire Element. It’s sort of similar to the Nebula Tool. The Nebula Tool improves one’s soul, so that the Magician’s general casting speed can be improved. Meanwhile, the Fire Element Magic Tool specifically targets the Fire Element. It can stack together with the effects of the Nebula Tool. On its own, the benefit it provides is fairly ordinary, but if supported by an outstanding Nebula Tool, it would significantly improve the cultivation of a particular Element!” explained Ai Tutu, who was busy eating her banana.
“I see, so it’s very useful to me. So if I were to cultivate in the Three Step Tower, with both the Nebula Tool and the Fire Element Magic Tool, and focus on the cultivation of the Fire Element, doesn’t that mean it would skyrocket?” said Mo Fan with glistening eyes.
Ai Tutu nodded. Her chubby mouth was corked with half a banana as she mumbled with a blurry voice, “The problem is, it’s already impressive to have either one of them, yet you’re thinking of stacking them together? Isn’t that too good to be true?”
“What rank would I need to get a chance of cultivating in the Three Step Tower?” asked Mo Fan.
“In your Fire School, I guess you’ll need to get in the top fifty to be able to cultivate in the Three Step Tower for one day. The higher your rank is, the longer the time you’ll be given. With your strength, it’s impressive enough that you can hold on to the hundredth rank. Forget about the top fifty, everyone up there is nothing but a maniac. You can only find people that are crazier and richer than you. If you don’t have a complete set of equipment, you don’t even have the guts to tell other people that you’re ranked in the top fifty in the Fire School.
“Look at yourself, a total povo without any presentable equipment. Your Double Innate Elements has given you lots of moves, but if someone’s defensive equipment was particularly strong against your Lightning Element or Fire Element, you are going to lose for sure!” said Ai Tutu.
“That is a great reminder,” Mo Fan nodded seriously.
After all, he was not an RMB player. He lacked equipment the most compared to the fuerdai. His advantage of having the Double Innate Elements was somehow non-existent against someone else’s complete set of equipment. Not everyone was a fool like Dongfang Ming, who would spend a huge amount of money on Wing Magical Equipment which was not particularly useful in a head-on battle against other Magicians.
If he had used the money he spent on the Wing Magical Equipment to buy a powerful shield or magic armor, it would easily have protected him from Mo Fan’s Basic Spells, making it harder for Mo Fan to win their battle!
“Why don’t you volunteer yourself as the Mu Clan’s son-in-law? Sister Mu’s clan does put a lot of effort in training great talents. With your reputation as the demon king, I believe they would be more than willing to provide you a complete set of equipment,” said Ai Tutu with a smile.
“Not a bad idea,” Mo Fan wore an evil smile, as his half-squinted eyes stared at the glamorous Mu Nujiao watering the plants on the balcony.
