Soul Land IV (Douluo Dalu) : Ultimate Fighting - Chapter 437
Chapter 437– Who Made A Profit ?
The benefits of using mithril to make a One-Word Battle Armor were obvious. Mithril had an extremely strong affinity with soul power, not only was it beneficial for conduction, but it could also amplify it. It also had a very strong fusion ability with almost all metals, making it much easier to evolve a Two-Word Battle Armor in the future.
Furthermore, the higher the quality of the rare metal, the stronger the Battle Armor.
“Xuanyu, no, boss, you’ll be our boss from now on. We don’t want old Bing anymore. I don’t want anything else, the rest of my rare metals are yours. I just want a set of One-Word Battle Armor made of mithril, first-grade Thousand Refined.” Yu Tian grabbed Lan Xuanyu’s arm with a flattering expression.
“Uh…” Lan Xuanyu wasn’t very used to this usually cool guy suddenly becoming like this.
“Yu Tian, how could you betray old Bing? Are you still human?” Lin Donghui said indignantly before grabbing Lan Xuanyu’s other arm. “Me too, count me in.”
“The two of you…” Bing Tianliang wanted to kick both of them but at this moment, he wasn’t willing to be outdone. “Even if you want to acknowledge him as your big brother, I should be the first to do it. Both of you, get out of the way.”
Seeing the three of them playing around, Lan Mengqin laughed out loud. “You three, do you really have to be like this!”
Yu Tian glanced at her. “You’ve grown your hair and your sight has gone bad, haven’t you? Do you know how much it costs to buy a set of One-Word mithril Battle Armor ? If you use emblems, you won’t be able to buy one even with ten purple emblems. Anyway, I’ll get a set first! Boss, it’s settled! The rest of my rare metals will be yours as payment. I’ll take my leave first.” With that said, he turned and ran.
This guy was actually very clever and crafty. Although they had more than two tons of mitrhil ores, he didn’t think that Lan Xuanyu would really be able to purify more than 300 kilograms of first-grade Thousand Refined mithril.
Was a first-grade Thousand Refinement that easy to do ? He had already paid for it and settled the deal. As long as he could have his own set it would be better than anything else.
Bing Tianliang and Lin Donghui immediately ran off as well. They had the same thoughts as Yu Tian. Regardless of whether Lan Xuanyu’s forging success rate was high or not, as long as they could obtain a set of first-grade Thousand Refined mythril One-Word Battle Armor, they would definitely be satisfied.
Before the end of their second year, the greatest consumption came from the Battle Armor. Thousand Refined Battle Armor could fuse with the body, but how many people could have a first-grade Thousand Refined Battle Armor? Not to mention that it was of mithril quality. This opportunity was truly the peak for a One-Word Battle Armor!
With this, paying an extra bit of rare metal was nothing. They were already very satisfied and could save more time to cultivate.
“These guys are too crafty. Boss, did you make a mistake? Can your first-grade Thousand Refinement really have such a high success rate?” Qian Lei asked doubtfully.
Lan Xuanyu said, “It should be pretty accurate, but I still have to practice more. I’ll use the other rare metals to practice first before getting to the mithril. They have left so many rare metals as forging fees. It’s very possible.”
Lan Mengqin looked at the smile on his face and said, “You seem very confident!”
Lan Xuanyu looked at the mountainous pile of six types of rare metals and smiled. “From today onwards, all of you are in my charge.”
The moment he said that, the other five people raised their eyebrows.
“Boss, what do you mean?” Qian Lei’s eyes lit up.
Lan Xuanyu said, “Teacher Xiao said that if these ores are only for sale, they can only be sold to the academy. But this referred to the ores. What if I can refine them into rare metals, Thousand Refined ones ? The price of a Thousand Refined rare metals in the academy isn’t too different from the outside world. After all, there is a problem with the success rate. With so many rare metals, how many emblems can I exchange for? It is enough for you guys to cultivate.”
Liu Feng, who had been silent the entire time, asked, “Xuanyu, what is the success rate of your Thousand Refinements?”
Lan Xuanyu smiled. “If it’s just ordinary Thousand Refinements, it should be over 80%.”
Silence. The other five people all went silent. They stared at him in disbelief.
Qian Lei finally understood what Lan Xuanyu meant when he said that there was a way to earn money. With an 80% success rate of Thousand Refinements, and they had gotten this large batch of rare metals for free.
These were rare metal ores that weighed over 30 tons. If they were refined into rare metals, it would probably be over four to five tons. With the addition of a Thousand Refinements to purify it, there would still be over a ton of Thousand Refined metals.
How much could a ton of Thousand Refined metals be sold for? This wasn’t easy to calculate since it involved six types of rare metals.
An astronomical figure. This was definitely an astronomical figure. No wonder Lan Xuanyu said that he could take everyone under his wings.
Furthermore, a ton was the most conservative estimate; the actual amount was definitely going to be higher than this.
Lan Xuanyu continued, “I’ll use a few low-grade metals to practice first. With so many rare metals for me to practice, I think I’ll be able to first-grade Thousand Refine very soon. I can’t sell all of these either. Other than making One-Word Battle Armor, I’ll still have to keep a large portion for practicing Spirit Refinement in the future. It’s said that Spirit Refinement requires a large amount of rare metals to practice.”
Qian Lei muttered, “I really want to tell Yu Tian what they have missed out on. Does this count as them losing a watermelon and picking sesame seeds?”
Liu Feng shook his head. “I don’t think so. A set of mythril first-grade Thousand Refined Battle Armor is already very expensive. At worst they’ve missed out on three to five times the total amount. According to Xuanyu’s forging success rate.”
“That’s enough, all of you.” Yuanen Huihui moved closer to Lan Xuanyu and giggled. “Big brother Xuanyu, we’ve agreed that you’ll support us all in the future. Haha, I won’t be doing any missions then.”
Lan Mengqin said, “It’s holidays now, where are you guys planning to go? I’m going home.”
Lan Xuanyu said, “I’m not going back. My parents will come and visit me. My teacher will come too.” As he spoke, he looked at Dong Qianqiu.
Dong Qianqiu: “I’m an orphan and have no place to go. Teacher Nana will come and I’ll accompany her.”
Qian Lei said, “I’m going home for a while. I’ll go home and show off. With Fatty Jin, I can fight in close combat too. I’ll let my father take a look when I get back.”
Liu Feng said, “I’m not going back either, I’ll stay in the academy and cultivate.”
“My home is here,” Yuanen Huihui said. “It’s the same as being in the academy. Continue cultivating.”
Lan Xuanyu said, “All of you must work hard on the design and production of your Battle Armor. I reckon that at the end of next semester, I should be able to produce enough first-grade Thousand Refined mithril for everyone.”
Lan Xuanyu’s first term at Shrek Academy had officially ended. This term was a complete qualitative change for him.
Checking his parents’ messages, they were already on their way. Nana was the same. She would see them in two days.
Lan Xuanyu and Qian Lei went to Sea God Lake to cultivate that night. Qian Lei wanted to let Fatty Jin drink his fill so that he could go home at ease. Lan Xuanyu, on the other hand, needed to recover his Dragon God scale so that he could continue cultivating.
The next morning, Qian Lei and Lan Mengqin left. The others’ life was no different from usual. Other than not having to attend classes, they were still cultivating hard.
Early morning on the third day of the holidays, Lan Xuanyu and Dong Qianqiu arrived at Shrek City Space Center together.
Not long after, two familiar figures appeared in the passageway.
“Dad, Mom, I’m here.” Lan Xuanyu jumped up and waved at them, his face filled with excitement and joy.
Dong Qianqiu, who was standing next to him, looked at him and couldn’t help but feel strange. Among his classmates, he had always been the most mature and wise. But when seeing his parents, he finally revealed emotions that a young boy should have.
Dong Qianqiu’s eyes were slightly moist and her heart was filled with envy. Dad, Mom, these two names already sound foreign to me. How great would it be if they were still alive!
