Chapter 215: Unconventional Bidding
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Liu Jie's biggest problem was money, as he had lent all his money to Bai Hao before his Insect Queen had been injured.
Not long ago, Bai Hao had returned the money to him, but over 10,000,000 Radiance dollars was clearly insufficient for him to buy the Hurricane Owlet Moth.
Although Liu Jie said nothing, Lin Yuan could see his desire for this source-type lifeform through his eyes. Lin Yuan could not help but ridicule in his heart, I didn't come to this private auction for nothing.
I need all these three source-type lifeforms—one for myself, one for Liu Jie, and the other for the Mother of Bloodbath.
The Lightning Sparrow King did not pause and continued to introduce the third source-type item. As she held the blood-red egg-shaped item in her hands, she said, "It should be the first time this source-type item is appearing, so it is unknown what exactly is its role. However, its contract condition is very simple.
"You just have to spend a large amount of spiritual energy for the contract. After the contract is successful, wait for the lifeform inside this egg to absorb all the blood energy inside until it can break through the eggshell. Only then will it appear.
"If you want to speed up the hatching, you can feed a large amount of your own blood."
An auctioneer who was interested in this source-type lifeform stood up and asked, "Lordess Lightning Sparrow King, how long does the source-type lifeform in this egg take to hatch? How much spiritual energy will it consume?"
The Lightning Sparrow King hid nothing. "The hardness of this eggshell can withstand the full force of a Diamond fey, so the lifeform inside needs to be able to break this eggshell first before it can hatch.
"It'll consume around the spiritual energy needed to contract three Platinum feys. You'll probably also need to feed your own blood for around ten years."
The Lightning Sparrow King's words made the onlooking Zhao Xiaochun smile.
Lin Yuan did not know what to say. Even people with very strong bodies could not feed this source-type lifeform a huge amount of their blood for ten years. They would die within a year. Ordinary people could not even survive a month.
Only A-rank spirit qi professionals could reach the spiritual energy required for three Platinum feys. However, which one of them would spend so much spiritual energy to contract an egg that would only hatch in a decade or so?
Even though the fey would at least reach Diamond when it hatched, the gains did not make up for the losses.
A-rank spirit qi professionals' limit was feys up to pinnacle Diamond. Even if they did not have a Fantasy Breed and had been nurturing a fey, it was really not a big problem when it reached Diamond. Therefore, this source-type lifeform in this blood-red egg was incomparably useless.
However, thanks to Lin Yuan's True Data, if the Deep Sea Blood Mosquito really hatched, it would not only just be at Diamond. Nevertheless, even if he irrigated it with a huge amount of blood daily, it would take at least 15 years or so for it to hatch.
Without blood nourishment, it could not hatch even in almost 100 years. It would take an unknown time for the Deep Sea Blood Mosquito larva to absorb the majestic blood energy in this egg.
Although it could withstand the full force of a Diamond fey, it was easy for the Mother of Bloodbath, a Suzerain/Myth I expert, to break this blood-red eggshell.
After the Lightning Sparrow King introduced the three source-type items, the bidding began, but most people focused on the second source-type lifeform in the brocade box, the Hurricane Owlet Moth.
Upon seeing this, the Lightning Sparrow King simply said, "Let's auction the Hurricane Owlet Moth first."
Lin Yuan did not bid right away. The price of this Hurricane Owlet Moth soared all the way to 30,000,000 Radiance dollars before slowing down. At that moment, a young man with dreadlocks stood up and said, "Senior Lightning Sparrow King, I wonder if I can exchange a Bronze/Epic Gold Devouring Rat for this Hurricane Owlet Moth."
As soon as he spoke, the venue fell silent. A Bronze/Epic fey was currently the highest-quality Bronze fey appearing in the Radiance Federation.
Any Bronze/Epic feys had the potential to reach Legend at Gold, and those with stronger potential could even reach Legend at Silver. Therefore, any such feys was akin to a great opportunity.
Even king-class experts would be moved when they heard of such feys.
When Lin Yuan saw the hesitant look on the Lightning Sparrow King's face, he knew that he should make a move. Otherwise, it would be too late when the Lightning Sparrow King agreed.
He stood up and said, "Senior Lightning Sparrow King, I also have a Bronze/Epic fey. I would like to use it to participate in the bidding."
Upon hearing that, the Lightning Sparrow King immediately asked, "Little friend, what kind of species is your Bronze/Epic fey?"
The Lightning Sparrow King's question made Lin Yuan not know how to answer for a while. He could not say that he had whatever species she wanted or that he had any species she could not think of. Otherwise, he would undoubtedly seem like a troublemaker.
When the youth with dreadlocks noticed that Lin Yuan was bidding with him, he frowned and said, "Summon it out if you have one. We'll see which of our feys interest the Lightning Sparrow King."
The youth with dreadlocks summoned a golden rat from the Diamond fey storage box at his chest after saying that. He walked up and handed the rat to the Lightning Sparrow King before he said, "Senior, please check it. If you intend to exchange with me, I can add another 10,000,000 Radiance dollars."
He sounded very sincere, his eyes full of the determination to win the bid.
When the Lightning Sparrow King took the golden rat and had a look, she nodded in awe and answered, "It's really a Bronze/Epic Gold Devouring Rat."
Although she sounded to be in awe, she had no expression of joy on her face. Clearly, this Bronze/Epic Gold Devouring Rat did not match the Willpower Runes that the two king-class experts had comprehended.
Due to the rarity of Bronze/Epic source-type lifeforms, very few people could perfectly match the Willpower Rune with such lifeforms. Those who had comprehended a Willpower Rune would first choose a Bronze/Epic fey that matched the Willpower Rune that they had comprehended, which was like winning the lottery.
If the feys were compatible with their own aptitude, they would not consider whether they matched their Willpower Rune.
For many of those who had awakened with the Willpower Rune, the choice of the Bronze/Epic feys would be secondary.
It was hard for the vast majority to find a compatible Bronze/Epic fey with their own aptitude. Despite their painstaking pursuit of it, they were still unattainable.
The youth with dreadlocks was equivalent to setting Lin Yuan on fire. If Lin Yuan could not take out a Bronze/Epic fey, he would be akin to be a troublemaker.
Many people's gazes gathered on Lin Yuan, including the Lightning Sparrow King and Shadow Bat King.
Wen Yu sensed that the youth with dreadlocks looked at Lin Yuan with a gaze full of ill will. Her expression changed, and she immediately radiated the aura of a Radiant Moon Palace's spirit attendant. Such aura came from her level and scope and not her strength.
When Lin Yuan sensed the change in Wen Yu's aura, he shook his head at her and said to the Lightning Sparrow King in a clear voice, "Senior Lightning Sparrow King, I will not add Radiance dollars, but you can choose your own species of Bronze/Epic feys."
