Soul Land IV (Douluo Dalu) : Ultimate Fighting - Chapter 436
Chapter 436 – Returning
TL : GoldenLung
The spaceship took off. Leaving the Resource Planet’s atmosphere was very bumpy. Only after this did Lan Xuanyu finally relax.
Was he really not afraid? Of course not. It was just that during the mission, he didn’t have time to think. He just felt that as the captain, he had to do it.
Back then, when Yin Tianfan was teaching him, he had once told him that a person could be proficient in odd tactics but absolutely have morals so that he wouldn’t go down the wrong path.
If he wanted to be a real space commander, he first had to let his spaceship become one with him. He had to let his fleet become a part of his body.
A space fleet was never something a single person could control, so one needed a group of brothers who he could truly trust and would carry out orders without any question.
Yin Tianfan had taught Lan Xuanyu many lessons on the subject of team and insisted many times on its importance. And to be a team leader, some qualities were required. For example, taking the lead!
At this moment, he finally relaxed. The first semester was over. He didn’t feel tired during this semester because he didn’t even have the time to feel tired. He wanted every minute to be filled up, afraid that he would lag behind his partners.
Everyone was working hard, so what reason did he have to not work hard? It was the same for everyone in Shrek Academy.
At the end of the term, his parents and teacher Nana were coming to visit him. At the thought of this, Lan Xuanyu was in a very good mood. He was still a teenager, after all, and at this moment, he really wanted to show his hard work to the people closest to him and display his abilities.
“Xuanyu, do you want to sell them when we get back?” Qian Lei’s voice suddenly rang in his ears, waking Lan Xuanyu up from his relaxed state.
Lan Xuanyu replied lazily, “Sell what”
Qian Lei said, “Of course the rare metals we got this time! We have so many rare metals. But I did some calculations and realized that the academy’s purchasing price isn’t high. It’s more than twice as high in the outside world. Now that we’re not allowed to sell them, I feel like it’s a loss! Why don’t we keep it for our own use? Although we can’t use so much at once, it’s better to keep it, right?”
Lan Xuanyu smiled. “As expected of Fatty Qian. Whenever it has to do with money, you become extremely crafty.”
Qian Lei chuckled. “I’m preparing for a rainy day. Of course we have to use our resources carefully and not waste them.”
Lan Xuanyu said, “When we get back, share what old pal Bing and the others should have. Let’s keep our portion here with me for now. I’ll help everyone forge the Thousand Refined metals needed for our One-Word Battle Armor first. As for the rest, I have my uses. I guarantee that everyone will not lose out.”
Qian Lei’s eyes lit up and he gave Lan Xuanyu a thumbs up.
“I don’t want it ! Don’t share it with us. Xuanyu, you have to be honest, we are your substitutes after all. You can deal with this batch of rare metals however you want, we will listen to you and however you want to distribute them.” Bing Tian leaned over from behind and pinched Lan Xuanyu’s shoulder.
Lan Xuanyu turned around and saw Bing Tianliang’s cunning smile.
“You…” He was helpless.
“By the way, your forging skills are pretty good! You can already forge a Thousand Refinements now?” Bing Tianliang was sitting behind Lan Xuanyu. He had heard everything that he and Qian Lei had said.
“En, I can barely do it, but I’m still lacking when it comes to a first-grade Thousand Refinements. I still need to practice more,” Lan Xuanyu replied.
Bing Tian’s eyes widened. “Being able to Thousand Refine means that you’re already a third rank blacksmith? When did you start learning how to forge? You’re already at the third rank?”
Lan Xuanyu: “What if I tell you that I only started learning this semester…”
“Stop! Don’t anger me. I don’t care when you learned it, but I’ll hand over my One-Word Battle Armor to you with Yu Tian and Lin Donghui. You can count the forging fees yourself and use those rare metals to refine them. It should be the best decision. We’re not in a rush, we only want first-grade Thousand Refinements. You should quickly go practice.”
“Old Bing, how can you be like that! First come, first served, do you understand? Us brothers don’t have any yet,” Qian Lei said in annoyance.
Bing Tian smiled. “It’s fine, we’re not in a rush. We just want a share.”
Lan Xuanyu laughed bitterly. “Are you clinging onto me now or what !”
“You guessed right.” Bing Tian laughed and returned to his seat.
After the end of term exam, he had completely understood that if he followed Lan Xuanyu they would have meat to eat ! Wasn’t the best proof this time’s end of term exam ? If it was them, would they be able to gain so much?
When the rich life energy from the Mother Planet once again appeared in the spaceship, Lan Xuanyu felt so comfortable that he almost groaned. After using his Dragon God Transformation, the life energy in his body was very weak. He didn’t need to do anything at all and his body had naturally started absorbing life energy frantically.
The end of term exam was over and everyone had passed. Xiao Qi naturally had a record of the specific results. The school holidays were announced on the spaceship and the next 15 days were everyone’s rest time. They could stay in the academy or go wherever they wanted.
After getting off the spaceship, the first thing Lan Xuanyu did was to bring everyone to his dorm and split the loot! No, distribute the gains.
Including Tang Yuge, when the ten people saw the room filled to the brim by rare metals, they all felt their mouths go dry.
Ding Zhuohan and his team’s harvest was in terms of kilograms, but what they were looking at was probably in terms of tons. Although they had only gone through a simple refinement and needed to be refined a second time to become a real rare metal, it was still an astronomical figure.
After classifying them, he gave Tang Yuge the portion that she deserved. The remaining ones were Lan Xuanyu’s team of six and Bing Tianliang’s team.
Bing Tianliang and his team got 15%, which meant that each person would get 5% of the profits. Lan Xuanyu’s team and Tang Yuge got 8.5% each.
Among the six types of rare metals, the majority were mithril and geng metal. Lan Xuanyu had originally decided to use Heavy Silver to forge his One-Word Battle Armor, but with top-notch rare metals like mithril in hand, how could he still use Heavy Silver?
“I suggest that everyone use mithril to make your One-word Battle Armor. The mithril here is enough for all of us to make a One-Word Battle Armor. According to the quality and density of mithril, each set of One-Word Battle Armor would require around 25 kilograms of first-grade Thousand Refined Heavy Silver without considering the failed goods. Our mithril mine should be about…”
At this point, the corners of Lan Xuanyu’s lips curled up. “Two and a half tons. If I purify them into first-grade Thousand Refine metals, I think we can have at least 300 kilograms. That’s enough.”
Bing Tianliang was shocked. “Your success rate at a first-grade Thousand Refining is that high?”
Lan Xuanyu glanced at him. “I don’t know yet because I haven’t reached that level yet. I calculated the success rate of the Thousand Refinements according to the current success rate that I can achieve. It should be much higher than ordinary blacksmiths.”
Bing Tianliang, Yu Tian, and Lin Donghui looked at each other and gasped.
Mithril for a One-Word Battle Armor? This was something they didn’t even dare to think about before! Let alone a first-grade Thousand Refined mithril, even a kilogram of pure mithril would require a yellow emblem. And considering the failure rate of forging, it was impossible to purify a set of first-grade Thousand Refined metals without 200 to 300 kilograms of mithril!
Two to three hundred kilograms of ordinary mithril was equivalent to ten purple emblems and above. Not to mention them, probably not many people in the entire Outer Court could afford it.
