The Strongest Dan God Chapter 158 – Leading the way
Translated by: Andy
DOP Tomorrow + more SDG!
Done with midterms too!
Compared to other people losing their contribution points, Ye Zifeng cared about his own points more.
Wang Tianzhi’s face started to twitch when he heard this. He wanted to see the expression of Ye Zifeng withdrawing since the beginning.
However, who would’ve thought that Ye Zifeng would recover from the shock so quickly! It was very disappointing.
Elder Lin was startled, “This…..”
He thought that Ye Zifeng was going to retreat to avoid a defeat and withdraw but instead, Ye Zifeng used this chance to increase his own rewards….
“Probably around three times…..”
Ye Zifeng smiled and shook his head, “three times the original value of the rewards?”
Elder Lin didn’t think about it and nodded quickly, “Yes.”
“You won’t regret it?”
Elder Lin furrowed his brows, “Laughable! Each of my words are worth a thousand gold. I will not say anything false!” He thought about it to see if there was anything wrong, but he wanted to save face and replied quickly.
Ye Zifeng turned to the ten remaining people before Elder Lin could react.
“Did you guys hear that? If it is three times the original reward, which is for twenty people, then if that’s split amongst the ten of us, we will get SIX times the reward each!”
“Six….Six times the reward!” The remaining people looked at each other and gulped.
With this, be brought back their fighting spirits.
If one has a chance to obtain 120% of the profit, they will liven up. When they can get 150%, they will be willing to take a risk. If they can get 200%, then they will do whatever they can do get it. From 200% to 300%, people will be willing to risk their lives.
But now, Ye Zifeng was suggesting a possible 600% profit! This caused everyone to go crazy. If they meet with any danger, they can also use the medallion to escape. Nothing else mattered to them now.
Elder Lin finally understood what Ye Zifeng meant, “Ye Zifeng, you tricked me! Confusing me with your words…..”
Ye Zifeng talked quickly and Elder Lin didn’t have a chance to think much about it.
Ye Zifeng smiled, “What? I thought Elder Lin’s words were worth a thousand gold. I thought that his words were never false.”
“You!” Elder Lin’s eyes widened and stood there. It’s been a long time since someone dared to speak to him like this. Other than Ye Zifeng, who would do so? They would usually try to be respectful and kiss his ass.
“Okay. Even if it’s possible to obtain six times the reward, so what? You’re talking like you can finish the mission…..” Elder Lin’s expression turned cold and smiled at Ye Zifeng.
“Five days. What can you guys do?”
Ye Zifeng did indeed increase the reward amount. However, can he finish the mission?
Without someone in the 9th stage of qi refining, Ye Zifeng’s ten man group was weaker than weak. If they want to finish like others, then it will be very hard.
“About that…….. Elder Lin doesn’t have to worry about it.”
After saying that, Ye Zifeng turned around with a stern look on his face.
When Ye Zifeng and Wang Tianzhi’s group entered the Scarlet Blood Valley, only the elders from the Ashen Spirit Sect and Profound Sect remained.
Elder Lin continuously cursed, “Who the hell does he think he is? How dare he talk to me like this? He deserved everything that happened to his group! Elder Shen, am I right?”
Shen Li was startled and forced a smile, “This…. Elder Lin is right.”
His relationship with Ye Zifeng was kept a secret. If possible, he didn’t want anyone else to find out about it.
On the other side, one of the higher ups from the Profound Sect smiled and exchanged glances with the person besides him.
“This Ye Zifeng is pretty interesting. Last time, when Adept Baili went to ask for pills, I thought he was just a crazed alchemist who knows nothing but alchemy. It seems like he’s has a fine personality as well.”
“Oh? Senior brother Liu, could it be that you want him to come to our Profound Sect?”
(TL: This is a different Liu from the Liu clan in Leizhou City.)
Adept Liu smiled, “It’s not hard to ask him to refine pills. This time, we’ve already decided on who’s coming to the sect. It won’t be good if we switch someone out…”
“But…. If he has good results, then we can also add him to the list.”
As long as the higher ups say something, adding one or two more people to the list won’t be that hard.
Ye Zifeng led people towards the mission site. While walking, he didn’t waste anything and had everyone introduce themselves.
“One by one. Tell me about your cultivation level and who you are.”
Ye Zifeng’s actions from before and his fame during the heavenly clan gathering and alchemist competition were noted by these people. They’re already decided to make him their captain.
Other than Xueyi, there were only eight people left. There were five guys and three girls. The one with the highest cultivation is at the 8th stage of qi refining while the lowest one is at the 5th stage of qi refining. That person was actually Shi Chen.
Other than Shi Chen, two of them were in the 7th stage of qi refining while the other two were in the eighth stage of qi refining.
Shi Chen sighed and faced Ye Zifeng, “Brother, when I met you during the first sect mission, you should know that I’m kind of a wimp…. I can only fight against fierce beasts on my level. If it’s one at a higher level, I can’t win at all….”
His words were to tell Ye Zifeng that when they face the common tier 9th stage beast, he will be standing a bit far away.
Ye Zifeng smiled, “No problem. I’ll allow you to stand as far away as possible.”
“Really?” Shi Chen looked at Ye Zifeng. He was trying to joke around but didn’t think that Ye Zifeng would actually allow it.
“Big brother. I’m kind of weak and don’t want to face the fierce beasts head on. Can I stand a bit further away?” One of the girls at the 7th stage of qi refining weakly said.
Ye Zifeng nodded, “Since you look so gentle, you’re definitely not the type to fight against the fierce beasts. Okay. You can stand far away too.”
Seeing that Ye Zifeng was so nice, two more people started to talk as well.
“Big brother. Actually, this brother and I have a hidden illness. It might break out at random times. I’m afraid that it’ll act up in front of the fierce beast and drag you guys down!”
“Yeah. Yeah. We want to stand far away too. Of course, we won’t be the furthest ones away.
They all want to get the rewards without doing anything. This way, if they meet with any danger, they can run first.
Ye Xueyi furrowed her brows and looked at Ye Zifeng, “Brother Zifeng. How can you let them do this? These people aren’t bought out by the Wang clan, they have some abilities.
Ye Zifeng smiled and didn’t answer Xueyi. Instead, he clapped his hands to get everyone attention.
“Since this is everyone’s first time here, then I have to say something to everyone. The topography here…..”
“Topography? Bro, don’t try to deceive us. You’re talking like you’ve been here before. Didn’t you just get the map as well?”
Shi Chen smiled and wanted to pat Ye Zifeng’s shoulders. However, when he heard the words come out of Ye Zifeng’s mouth, his hand stopped in mid air.
Ye Zifeng continuously talked without a hint of stopping.
“No…..No way. Is the Scarlet Blood Valley your backyard? How can you be so familiar with it? Shi Chen was shocked!
Ye Zifeng smiled, “Hehe…. Don’t worry about it. Just trust me a little.” For the past two days, Ye Zifeng had listened to Wang Lin and Wang Ruoxing talk about the valley. He basically recited everything back to Shi Chen and the others.
Everyone was surprised, “Of course. If big bro needs anything, just tell us!”
If they have someone who is familiar with the area leading them, they would feel a lot better. This was because if they meet up with some danger, they can escape quickly and efficiently. They won’t have to use the medallion from the sect and lose contribution points.
“Good. Then everyone, follow me in!”
Ye Xueyi looked strangely at Ye Zifeng. When did Ye Zifeng become so easy to talk to? This was very strange.
She walked closer to her brother and asked, “Brother Zifeng, tell me truthfully. Are you planning something bad again?”
