Chapter 1043: Let Me Have My First Attempt!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Since the System was upgraded to version 10.0, Xu Que hadn’t seen the new products that had been added to the System store for a long time. It was because he wanted to save the Acting Tough Points. Also, in the past if one had to kill an ace of a higher cultivation stage, one could get a Big Mystery Bag or a Big Growth Gift Bag. There was even Big Gift Bag of Crossing Tribulation. Difficulties that he encountered could be solved with an item from the System. But when he entered the Form Synthesis Stage, all those benefits vanished. Xu Que didn’t receive anything when he was in the Crossing Calamity Stage in the Refined Moon Palace of the Taijin Continent.
But now, The Four Great Continents had hundreds of aces at the Celestial Stage. The key was that they didn’t know whether others were Half-Celestial or Human Celestial. In conclusion, he couldn’t underestimate any of them, and he must search for some useful products to cheat!
The System interface flashed on, and Xu Que communicated with the System directly with his mind. He screened for any products that could improve his strength in a short time, enough to defeat either a Half-Celestial or a Human Celestial.
The System interface turned on, and the original superb collections of products switched into various rays of light; all automatically emptied from the System interface. In the end, the System store interface was left with two cells: “Firestorm Wheels (damaged)” and “Rank skill: Low-grade Celestial Artifact: Function: Activate it with True Core Strength.Its speed is transcendent, comparable to an ace from Earth Celestial Stage!”
“Price: 2 million Acting Tough Points!”
Hiss! Seeing the contents on the first grid, Xu Que gasped.
What is this nonsense? A low-grade Celestial Artifact is so expensive; 2 million Acting Tough Points? Who can afford it?
But how could this Firestorm Wheels be a low-grade Celestial Artifact? Could it be…? Xu Que pondered.
He was confused for a moment; he read the introduction again and understood the rationale. In the introduction of the System, the Firestorm Wheels was indeed a vehicle owned by Ne Zha from myths and legends. It was made up of two Ancient Mythical Beasts, Green Argus and Fire Phoenix. At its peak, it could be regarded as the best Celestial Artifact, but when it loses its Artifact Spirit, it immediately became a damaged product, and a low-grade Celestial Artifact.
But if he could find Green Argus and Fire Phoenix, subdue them, and convert them into Artifact Spirits, that low-grade Celestial Artifact would be upgraded into the best-grade Celestial Artifact, and it would be restored to its peak.
No wonder it’s so expensive. It can be upgraded into a best-grade Celestial Artifact! Xu Que thought to himself.
The Firestorm Wheels had attracted him. Even if he had the best-grade spirit stones, he would only be on par with Mahayana, the Great Vehicle Stage; he wouldn’t be on par with those aces in the Half-Celestial Stage or the Human Celestial Stage.
The reason why he could launch sneak attacks on so many in the Refined Moon Palace was because he relied solely on the restrictions of the Refined Moon Palace; it suppressed the strength of all the strong people and forced them down to the Mahayana, the Great Vehicle Stage. Thus, Xu Que felt it surprisingly easy to fight them.
But now, the Immortal Cultivators he was facing weren’t suppressed by any restrictions. They were all genuinely powerful people who were high in their cultivation stages; it was too daunting! If he only relied on his best-grade spirit stones, it would surely be not enough to outrun his opponent. But if he could retrieve the Firestorm Wheels, he could beat the speed of those aces in the Earth Celestial Stage; that would be walking on air.
“What a pity!” Xu Que pounded his chest as he lamented. The cost of the Firestorm Wheels was so high that he was about to vomit blood. 2 million Acting Tough Points, where could he find them on such a short notice?
When he returned from the Taijin Continent, he had only about 400,000 Acting Tough Points. After using a few Message Delivering Papers, he drew in 200,000 more points. Now, the total number of Acting Tough Point he had was no more than 600,000 points. There was a big gap between his current points and the much needed 2 million Acting Tough Points.
“It’s a dead case. I can’t afford to mess with it!” At last, Xu Que shook his head, decided to suck it up, and give up on his initial plan.
After all, the situation was urgent. It wasn’t easy to gather 2 million Acting Tough Points. The Immortal Cultivators on The Four Great Continents and the enemies from the past would certainly not leave him much time. Maybe someone was on their way to get him now!
“Uh, what is this second one…?”
He had no choice but to contemplate the other product located on the second grid in the interface of the System store; it was the final result after the system screening. But to his surprise, that last choice wasn’t a Celestial Artifact or a Cultivation Skill, it was a function.
Lottery function? D*mn it! When Xu Que had a clearer look at the roulette pattern on the product photo, he screamed to himself. That was f*cking brilliant. They even have a lottery function!
“System, why wasn’t this available before? D*mn it, you’re so good at hiding things!” Xu Que immediately looked into the matter with the System.
The System responded calmly,
Ding! “The lottery function started when the System was upgraded to version 10.0; it was recorded in the Upgrade Diary. Xu Que, please check and proofread it yourself!”
“Uh, what’s the use of writing it down? You’re not like me, having to work all day and night. You have to tell me what’s new in the future!” Xu Que coughed and tried to forcefully push the blame onto the System.
Indeed, as the System mentioned, the lottery function existed in version 10.0; the function existed before he went to Earth. It was just that he was too busy going back to Earth and didn’t bother to read any Upgrade Diary; thus he never found out. But now in order to deal with a strong enemy, Xu Que seemed to see the light of hope again after the System produced that thing.
After all, the lottery function was just like a Big Mystery Bag; the product that it could bring was a surprise. There was a possibility that his problem could be solved at any moment!
“Come on, let me have my first attempt! Enable the Lucky Aura and draw the lottery immediately!” Soon, Xu Que had made his choice, and his mind chanted as the System worked.
Ding! “This function is currently a low-grade lottery, the lottery system will be upgraded as a System upgrade in the future. According to the current low-grade lottery situation, each lottery needs 50,000 Acting Tough Points, are you ready to use this function?” the System responded.
Xu Que was stunned. Even the lottery function was graded?
D*mn it, the lottery function is now merely a low-grade lottery. What if I get a useless product, wouldn’t that be a big loss? Xu Que pondered to himself.
The key was that each lottery cost 50,000 Acting Tough Points, in addition to the use of the Lucky Aura, while the Act-Tough Saint only had around 600,000 Acting Tough Points. This meant he could only have ten lottery chances!
“D*mn it! Dishonest merchants! Forget it, forget it! I have to try at least once, if not the battle in the future will be hard to win!” In the end, Xu Que decided to compromise. He enabled the Lucky Aura and immediately used the lottery function.
The System interface changed into a huge roulette wheel that was displayed in front of him. There were tens of thousands of fine grids on the wheel; those were densely written with countless small letters not visible to the human eye.
When Xu Que used the lottery function, the roulette turned quickly, and the pointer on top kept trembling.
“D*mn it, don’t rotate that long! Lucky Aura is expensive, stop moving!” As soon as the roulette started, Xu Que anxiously rushed and screamed at the System.
This time, the System was a little more humane. The roulette skipped the rotating part to reduce Xu Que’s time. As the roulette slowed down gradually, the pointer at the top pointed to a small white grid. The result of the lottery was determined!
“What, what was written on that?” Xu Que strained his eyes and tried to look at the tiny letters on the white grid.
Suddenly, the System’s reminder rang in his mind, followed by a ray of light shining from the small white grid; the font was enlarged and presented in front of him.
“Lottery result: One 80 percent discount coupon for any product!”
