Chapter 302 - 302: Skill Space
Long Chen brought out a list of ingredients and gave it to the disciple on the other side of the table.
The man went through the list. The more he read, the more surprised he became.
"What do you need all this for?" He asked in surprise.
"I don't think that you need to know about it. Just tell me how much they are going to cost," Long Chen replied.
"It will cost you a thousand contribution points. Do you even have that much?" The man asked Long Chen.
"Oh, it's fine then. Give me the herbs. I'm in a hurry," Long Chen replied in a hurry.
"Alright," The man stood up and went to the back. He came back instantly but without the list.
A few minutes later, another person came. That person was carrying a bag in his hand that was filled with the medicinal herbs and spiritual plants that Long Chen needed.
He gave that bad to Long Chen and left.
Long Chen transferred thousand contribution points from his badge.
Just as Long Chen was about to leave, the man asked.
"Are you an alchemist as well?"
"I'm not one. Maybe in the future, I'll be," Long Chen smiled as he responded.
He left the place with Man Gu.
"Interesting," The man let out with an amused smile on his face.
He left the place with Man Gu.
As soon as Long Chen came out of the place, he managed to meet up with someone he had seen before.
"Hey, Aren't you the guy whose hand I had cut off? Sorry man, I was in a bad mood that day," Long Chen said as he saw the guy coming towards the Alchemy Hall.
'They must have used a Life-Giving Pill. Well, he's a disciple of a Black-Robed Elder, so that's to be expected,' Long Chen thought as he noticed that the boy's arm had recovered.
"You! Stay away from me!" The boy saw Long Chen and hurriedly took a few steps back in horror.
"I won't hurt you. Don't be scared.' Long Chen smiled as he stepped closer to him.
"I'm warning you! Don't come closer!" The closer Long Chen tried to move, the farther Tiyu went.
"Alright, alright. Don't worry. I'm going," Long Chen said with a smile as he turned back and started walking the opposite side.
"Where do you want to go, Master?" Man Gu noticed Long Chen walking opposite to his courtyard and asked.
"I'm going to check out the skill hall. I might as well enjoy the opportunity to learn something new," Long Chen said with a smile.
Tiyu watched Long Chen and Man Gu leave. Only after they left, did he enter the Alchemy Hall.
"This is the Skill Hall. I can only go so far with, Master. Though I do have some advice for Master. Since you have 2000 points, you should try going to the Skill Space. You might find a decent skill." Man Gu said to Long Chen.
"Skill Space? That's the first time I'm hearing of it. What's that?" Long Chen inquired.
"Every skill inside the skill hall costs contribution points. Some skills are worth a hundred thousand points while some are worth 10 points. There are two ways one can select a skill. One is to select one and pay normally. And the second was is to enter the Skill Space,"
"It's a special space where you can get any skill. Every try costs 2000 points. After paying, you are sent to a special space where millions of skills reside. Based on your luck and your potential, a skill itself comes to you. The only downside is that you can't select a skill. If no skill comes to you, then the 2000 contribution points are wasted." Man Gu explained.
"Oh, so it's like a lucky draw. Interesting. Is there something else I should keep in mind?" Long Chen asked with an amused look on his face.
"The only thing to keep in mind is that you shouldn't forcefully take a skill. You can only select one Skill inside the skill space," Man Gu replied.
"Alright. That sounds like an interesting thing. I might give that a try and take the risk. You can go back. It might take some time," Long Chen smilingly said as he entered the skill hall.
A 4-star disciple was sitting on a chair inside the skill hall. She was reading a book.
The girl looked to be 18-19 years old.
"Interesting. The Dark Soul Sect is quite different. All the important places are left for the 4-star disciples to handle. She must be the personal disciple of the Skill Hall Elder," Long Chen muttered.
The girl was so engrossed in the book that she didn't notice Long Chen standing near her.
"Ahh... Miss? Are you the one who's handling this place?" Long Chen asked politely.
The girl lowered her book and raised her head to look at the person who had spoken.
"I am. Are you here to get a skill?" she asked with any expression.
"Yup. Why else would someone come here?" Long Chen let out with a smile.
"True. Anyways, I've seen you here for the first time," She said.
"Yea. I'm new to the sect." Long Chen replied.
The girl noticed the 4-star badge on Long Chen's chest and asked.
"Wait a minute. You're a new 4-star disciple? Are you the one called Long Chen? The ruthless newcomer of the sect?" The girl said with an interested look on her face.
"Ruthless newcomer? I never knew I heard such a nickname, but I'm indeed Long Chen. Who might you be?" He asked.
"I'm Chu Miao." The girl replied with pride on her face.
"Oh," Long verb casually responded.
"Hey? Don't you know who I am?" The girl asked as she saw that there was no change in Long Chen's expression.
"Sorry, I'm new to the sect. So I don't know anyone. Are you someone I should know about?" Long Chen replied with a confused look on her face.
"I'm Chu Miao, the second rank on the strength ranking. Right above you," The girl said with a smile.
"Oh, Congrats on being the second rank. Sorry for not recognizing you. I didn't check the strength rankings." Long Chen said.
