Chapter 1030: Drafting Manpower
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
For Qin Feng, it was as easy as pie to take down such an ultra beast.
While the others were still in their battle of life or death, all Qin Feng did was just raise his hand to kill those ultra beasts. It was almost impossible to miss such an overwhelming scene.
Everyone present were apt.i.tude users of S-tier and above, and their consciousness was all over the battlefield. There was nothing that they would miss out on at the scene.
Qin Feng did not care about others’ views. The only thing he cared about was the ma.s.sive amount of energy embedded within the body of the armored star. It was being devoured and merged into his body.
Qin Feng was tempted.
“This armored star only had its physical development maxed out, and its body is as st.u.r.dy as steel. After absorbing it, the result is surprisingly good.”
Of course, it was just one armored star. But it was already equivalent to the level of absorbing physical energy from ten other Insectoids.
But Qin Feng knew that he just needed to start small and acc.u.mulate to a greater amount. Only then, he would be able to enhance his physical capability. The only way was to kill, nothing else.
The greater the physical capability, the more energy required. The absorbed energy would then be refined. It was no longer like before when core absorption could be used to directly enhance physical capability.
He needed more kills, more fresh blood and flesh for his Absorption Ability.
With that in mind, Qin Feng expanded his consciousness.
There were at least a thousand armored stars detected via his consciousness. Of course, there were still members from the Human Alliance that were stationed here. There were about five to six thousand of them that were a.s.signed for the mission there.
However, all five to six thousand of them were positioned close to the colony to defend against the attacks of the armored stars. There were still more armored stars that were blocked by the others in the front line from moving forward, and they were totally ignored.
Qin Feng noticed the situation and immediately took action without any intention to conceal it. His capability was already close to that of S2-tier, but his combat energy could already pose a ma.s.sive threat to an ordinary SSS-tier.
The stronger he became, the less he cared about restrictions.
Qin Feng’s shadows maneuvered through the dark at visible speed. He left his original spot and entered into the ma.s.sive army of armored stars.
There were more than two hundred armored stars around, densely crowded around the greyish-black ground. Qin Feng then appeared in the centre.
Dark stellar was activated, while an array of horrifying dark presence shrouded around the area of thousands of meters.
Compared to the body sizes of the ma.s.sive ultra beasts, Qin Feng was just a small and weak figure. But his explosive combat energy dropped a bombsh.e.l.l.
Qin Feng had only released the most commonly seen death wall, but it would already be enough to invade the bodies of the armored stars with an unidentified amount of overwhelming dark presence.
Despite the extreme defence energy and impenetrable carapace that the armored stars had, they were totally useless when shrouded by the mighty dark presence.
Under the influence of dark presence, all the armored stars fell dead on the ground.
Qin Feng absorbed energy from the flesh and blood of those armored stars.
“This is still not enough…” Qin Feng was still dissatisfied, and he continued to release his dark ability.
It was safe to say that the combat energy of Qin Feng’s abilities was on par with an SSS-tier. Battles that would have lasted for a day were completed in less than half an hour.
But there were too many of them. Without Bai Li, Qin Feng did not want to clean up those armored stars. Hence, they were all sold to the headquarters of the Human Alliance.
Just like when it was at the Omnesflores, military accomplishments were redeemable using ultra beasts. Also, the Mangled Crater Realm allowed item exchange sourced from the realm with military accomplishments.
Undoubtedly, the place was in abundance with minerals.
Now that Qin Feng has already obtained SS-tier materials from the Broodmother Bloodl.u.s.t Centipede, he only needed more precious minerals to upgrade his Verdant Emperor Saber.
By then, his Verdant Emperor Saber could be upgraded to SS-tier.
Several days later, Insectoid invasions were constantly exploding within the Mangled Crater Realm. Humans were unable to move far and they were trapped within the colony. If the spatial entrance was not present, it would be as if they were being trapped in an isolated island.
Meanwhile, an SSS-tier apt.i.tude user felt troubled while remaining hidden in the dark.
The SSS-tier apt.i.tude user was Zhao Ge. He was a.s.signed by Ahn Ping Prime to take down Qin Feng.
However, he was shaken up by the overwhelming performance from Qin Feng.
From the last several attacks of the Insectoids, Qin Feng did not make any mistakes he could take advantage of. Furthermore, with the number of ultra beasts that he had killed, his military accomplishments had already ent.i.tled him to a lot of SS-tier minerals.
After all, Qin Feng alone had more kills than the thousands of others in the battlefield combined.
“With such capabilities, it is impossible to wait for him to make a mistake. Seems like I have to take a different approach.”
The next day, Zhao Ge opened his communicator and ordered a draft.
Hence, every apt.i.tude user from the colony stood at the central s.p.a.ce and waited for Zhao Ge’s order.
“It has been a while since we came. Every invasion into other realms that we had would always have problems with clearing out the natives. Seems like we are now facing a major hindrance.”
“The armored stars are not formidable creatures, but they are have a powerful capability to reproduce. I am planning to draft out some apt.i.tude users to directly take down the armored star broodmother. I believe this will free us from this bottleneck situation.”
“Now, I expect active partic.i.p.ation from everyone. I have decided to fork out a part of the SS-tier minerals available to reward the person that can take down the broodmother at the end.”
Zhao Ge’s term was extremely tempting. But there were still many that remained uninterested.
“Master Zhao Ge, apart from the promised reward, allow me to ask, will you still partic.i.p.ate in the battle? Or will you stay away from it?”
Zhao Ge had only proposed a drafting. But he did not mention about leading the team himself. Perhaps he would still remain in the colony and contribute nothing to the fight!
Throughout the past few days, Qin Feng had demonstrated his horrifying capabilities on the battlefield. Everyone had unequivocally acknowledged that he was as good as an SSS-tier apt.i.tude user. Qin Feng dedicated himself toward the battle, instead, Zhao Ge was not involved at all.
For Zhao Ge, he would rather leave the task of hunting down those creatures for the lower-cla.s.s laborers that were ready to be sacrificed. Qin Feng was the only highly capable person that the others referred to as a comparison against Zhao Ge. Hence, everyone else had extremely low confidence in Zhao Ge.
“I will definitely join in, of course. I am extending my sincere invitation to everyone. Oh yes, Qin Feng, are you in? In my opinion, you are definitely capable of taking down the broodmother, and we need a powerful figure like you.”
Zhao Ge sounded like he was negotiating. However, was it even possible for an SSS-tier apt.i.tude user to accept rejection? As soon as Zhao Ge had proposed the plan, it was already as certain as the sun that rises.
Qin Feng blinked and instantly felt that the entire plot to set him up had gone smooth as silk. It was absolutely flawless.
Zhao Ge’s proposal was absolutely necessary to tackle the crux of the matter. Although there were still risks, as long as the armored star broodmother was an SS-tier beast deity, Zhao Ge’s presence should already suffice to put it to bed.
However, would Zhao Ge persevere until the end? Would he be a turncoat and abandon Qin Feng when he was hunting down the broodmother?
With that being said, how could Qin Feng grant Zhao Ge’s wish so easily?
It would take another twenty days before Bai Li was out. Even if Qin Feng were to play for time, he would still have to drag it on for twenty days.
“Of course, I will join. But it is not that easy to get to the broodmother. In my opinion, let’s clear off part of the armored stars. We will then launch our attack against the armored star lair a month later!”
