Chapter 47: Master Level Smithing
Crouching Dragon Range, Level 13 Gale Tiger territory.
Ding! System Prompt: Congratulations on reaching Level 15. You have received 3 free attribute points.
Ding! System Prompt: Transmute Monster successful!
“Whew. I finally managed to level up to Level 15 in a night, and my Tiger race bloodline has reached 100%. If it wasn’t for the two failures, I would have reached level 17,” Jiang Feng said as he heaved a heavy sigh as he looked at the Gale Tiger that had fallen before him, and he then looked at the time.
In one night, under the assistance of Yanhu and Heifeng, he had increased 4 levels. Unfortunately, he had failed twice while fusing with the corpses of the Gale Tiger and had lost 2 levels.
Fortunately, he had still reached his target of Level 15 and his Tiger race bloodline had reached 100%.
Originally he wanted to find monsters of the Dragon race so that he could fuse with them and improve his Dragon race bloodline. Unfortunately, Dragon monsters were all of a high level, and the failure chance of fusion was too high, so he could only give them up.
“After fusing with so many Gale Tigers in one night, my stats have increased quite a bit. Now that my Tiger race bloodline is full, let’s see if I could evolve into a Rank 6 tiger king!”
Jiang Feng looked at his stats, then went to find a hidden location. He then took out an evolution pill and had Yanhu and Heifeng to guard over him as he began to evolve.
He wasn’t sure if it was because of the number of times he had evolved, he became numb to the pain from the evolution. He felt that it was less painful this time around.
Ding! System Prompt: Evolution successful.
Ten minutes later, his evolution had succeeded without any accident, and he had become a Rank 6 Tiger King.
The main reason that he had chosen to evolve the Tiger Race’s bloodline was that the Dragon race bloodline was only at 0% as he still needed to increase its purity. If not, he would never succeed in evolution. As for the wolf and canine race bloodline, he would not think of evolving these two as they had a limit to their growth. They couldn’t even reach the level of a Divine Beast.
As such, he could only choose to evolve the Tiger’s Race Bloodline as it was the bloodline with the highest rank as well as having the growth to become a Divine Beast.
After the success of his evolution, he quickly opened his status window and checked with joy.

“My health points have increased by 7,000 plus. While my attack and defense increase was a bit lower, it was just as I had guessed. The increase in attributes become fewer as I progress. But at least once I have increased to Rank 6, I had an extra skill. Overall, not bad!”
Jiang Feng looked at his Level 15 stats and nodded in satisfaction.
Tiger Roar: Active skill. Once activated, shoots an energy beam from the mouth, and deals damage equal to 150% of base damage to enemies on a 5 meters straight line.
“With my current attack, if I use the Tiger Roar skill I could deal around 2,400 damage disregarding the enemies’ defense. I could instantly kill those classes with low HP,” he muttered excitingly as he looked at the skill.
It can be said that his strength had increased considerably in one night.
If he had to go through the third level of the Cave of the Undead, he could finish it even faster. And he would no longer be humiliated by the Zombie Dog King.
“Oh right, with the success of my evolution, I have one extra chance to go for the lottery! I can go for a draw!”
He then remembered the lottery from the Monster Transmutation System. He quickly summoned the spinning wheel and began the lottery.
His stats were very high. Even the usual veteran players wouldn’t exactly stand a chance against him, but his opponent wasn’t just one person, but it was all the players that were part of the Divine and Infernal factions. That was why he had to become stronger.
If he wanted to become strong, there were many ways. Leveling up, increasing his ranks, equipment, skills, and bloodline.
Level and rank could be increased bit by bit. Bloodline could be obtained by fusing with monsters. As he could not have a class, he could only get skills by increasing his rank or through skill books. Equipment can only be gained through the lottery system.
That was why the things that he wanted the most are equipment and skills.
Once the lottery had begun, he lay on the ground with his forelimbs in a praying position, and his tiger eyes the size of chicken eggs stared at the spinning wheel.
“Om Mani Padme Hum… Give me a Divine Artifact…”
As he was praying, the indicator stopped spinning and stopped at the Special category.
Next, the spinning wheel disappeared and became a clear diamond chest.
While he didn’t get any equipment, he was still quite excited to see a diamond level chest.
While he wasn’t exactly sure of the tiers of chests in the lottery but to him, diamond chests were already pretty great. Last time he opened a diamond chest he got the bloodline of a Spiritual Beast, the Skywind Dragon.
While he did open a prismatic chest once, but The Art of Yin Yang Union of Joy was completely useless to him before the marriage system was open.
While he did not get a bloodline this time, he was still looking forward to what could come out from a Special chest.
As he opened the diamond chest with great anticipation, he saw a book resting within it.
Master-Level Smithing Skill Book: Once used, you can become a master-level smith.
‘Hm? A master level Craft-Profession Skill. I wonder if I could forge pet equipment?’ As Jiang Feng thought of that, he licked his lips and took out the skill book and learned it directly.
Ding! System Prompt: Congratulations on becoming a master-level Smith. You gained 200 points of reputation.
Smith: Master 0/100,000
100% of forging Black-Iron and Green-Bronze equipment.
50% of forging White-Silver equipment.
20% of forging Yellow-Gold equipment.
5% of forging Dark-Gold equipment.
Note: Chances of equipment depends on Luck and materials used.
Jiang Feng frowned as he looked at the Craft-Profession Skill. “Why was the Master level smithing having such a low chance of producing Yellow-Gold and Dark-Gold equipment? And what’s with the last sentence? If the Luck and quality of the materials are high, it would increase the success rate?”
“I should try it in the city!”
Even after he had learned Smithing, he still needed the tools for it. These tools were available at the blacksmith’s smithy, so he was going to return to the Imperial Dragon City to give it a try. If he could create pet equipment, then his equipment problem would be solved.
Not only that, but he could also forge even more pet equipment and give a set to Yanhu and Heifeng. That way, his party would become even stronger.
The more he thought about it, the more excited he became. He quickly ran towards the direction of the Imperial Dragon City. On his way back, he even checked the Trading Hall to see if he could find any materials needed for the smithing.
