Chapter 584 Blue Sky Above Your Head
Shang Yang Galaxy Station.
Inside the Suite.
Lu Ze, Nangong Jing, Qiuyue Hesha, and Lin Ling were lying on the couch while watching their own phones. They weren’t playing. They were searching for missions-local missions.
Local missions were usually published by the stationed army or adventure squads. Most of the missions here were planetary states. There were mortal evolution state missions, but there were few of them. After all, this was at the very border of human territory.
Some missions can be done inside, and some were outside the territory.
“The military has quite a lot of missions.” Lu Ze sighed. He lifted up his leg and put it on Lin Ling’s leg on the other couch.
Mhm, it was soft and bouncy. Comfortable!
Lin Ling expressionlessly slapped Lu Ze’s leg away. In turn, Lu Ze silently took his leg back.
Qiuyue Hesha said, “What can we do? There aren’t a lot of planetary state humans. The military has the most planetary states, but the territory is so large. They don’t have enough people.”
Nangong Jing nodded. “The missions outside the territory are much more numerous than the ones inside. The army ensures the safety of the territory first.”
Lu Ze nodded. It wasn’t too plausible for the stationed army and planetary states to guard this region that had an area of tens of thousands of light-years. That’s why they needed help from the adventure guilds.
“No wonder senior Yan Gu said there would be more missions here.” Lin Ling scanned the missions and sighed.
There were indeed a lot of missions, and most were suitable for them. From hunting foreign beings inside the territory to guarding resource planets, there was everything.
A few hundred missions!
Everyone flicked through the missions and discussed them.
“This mission is good. Hunt a being from the Tiger Tail Race, who comes inside the territory to steal resources. Cultivation level is level three of the planetary state, but he seems to possess a god art to hide himself… 1500 Shenwu merit points! Just how much did this guy steal?”
“This mission isn’t bad. They found a small squad of blade demons near the Chihuo Star Region. The strongest is estimated to be a level-three planetary state. However, they may also have a level-four planetary state. If we kill them, we get 750 Shenwu merit points. If we capture them alive 1200… Hmm… do we have the power?”
The strongest was only a level-four planetary state, but the reward reached over a thousand merits. Clearly, this could be attributed to the difference in the race.
“Never mind, let’s just take it first! If we can’t finish it, we’ll just pay 5% of the reward as compensation. Let’s try it?”
Tens of Shenwu merit points were probably the reward of a few missions for mortal evolution states, but it wasn’t much for them.
“This mission isn’t bad too. A group of silver hook beasts appeared on planet Nanlis. It seems the Shenwu Army stationed there finds it hard to defend the area. They need to be cleared out. Silver hook beasts’ tail was a planetary state material. There’s a recycle mission for that. It’s like getting two rewards for one mission. Should we try it?”
There were too many missions, but most of them would be safe if a level-five planetary state accepted it. Their squad was a noob team. The strongest among them, Nangong Jing and Qiuyue Hesha, only had a combat power near level four of the planetary state. Lu Ze could be considered high at level two, and Lin Ling was merely level one.
They could only get middle-to-low missions. Despite this, the rewards were quite plenty.
After accepting the missions, three hours had passed.
Nangong Jing exclaimed on the couch. “Pity that each team can only accept three missions at once. The other missions have to wait until the accepted missions are completed.”
Qiuyue Hesha replied, “This is just what it is. Some missions can’t be accepted after others accept them. If you take it and don’t complete it, it’s wasting time.”
Nangong Jing didn’t argue back. She was just complaining
Lu Ze lay on the couch. They were waiting for his reward before going to do the missions again. How much would he get? Lu Ze was quite hopeful.
Lu Ze looked at Lin Ling and said fawningly, “Lin Ling, I’m hungry. I want roast pork!”
Lin Ling: “…”
She rolled her eyes and got up. “I’ll go cook.”
After dinner, they went back to their own rooms.
Lu Ze sat on the bed and closed his eyes, entering the pocket hunting dimension. He looked around and saw the huge forest in the distance. His eyes lit up immediately.
He hadn’t been near here for a long time! Lu Ze remembered those golden monkeys!
He still had half of the golden fruit wine left after a month, but Lu Ze cared more about their god art.
It was probably a body god art, right?
Lu Ze was keen. Last time, he was still a noob, but now, he was a boss!
Even during the day, he could kill level-seven mortal evolution states and be on par with level-eight mortal evolution states.
There were level-seven mortal evolution state monkeys.
Lu Ze flew towards the forest. As soon as he came in, his vision dimmed. It was rather dark here, but Lu Ze didn’t mind.
He already had night vision from the body of darkness. He started to conceal his chi and scan around carefully. Soon, he found his target and disappeared from the spot.
A few minutes later, Lu Ze looked at the animals below the tree, and his mouth twitched.
It was a strange animal with gray fur and sharp claws. It was five meters tall and looked like a rat. It had triangular ears and a fluffy tail. Its appearance was quite cute.
The only strange thing was that the hair on its head was green. This was the first time Lu Ze saw such an animal. The rat was only a level-four mortal evolution state and was a safe choice for Lu Ze. It didn’t notice him at all as it was happily gnawing away at the tree roots.
Lu Ze appeared above the rat’s head, and his hand struck down.
A huge black golden palm flattened the rat into the ground.
The rat’s four legs convulsed before dying. Its body then turned to ashes, leaving five red and purple orbs, as well as a green orb.
Lu Ze had never seen this before. New god art orb?
Was this a wood element?
Lu Ze took it happily.
Wood god art was the Elf Race’s racial god art. Other than water, he gathered all five elements of god art. Even if there was no water god art on this map, there was probably one on the next map.
Lu Ze happily picked up the orbs and left.
In the next ten hours, he found more beasts. They were mostly stronger than the beasts outside the forest. The weakest was a level-three mortal evolution state. Lu Ze even saw a huge anaconda that was a level-nine mortal evolution state.
Lu Ze didn’t even dare to breathe upon seeing its crisp green body. Luckily, he had chi stealth god art. The anaconda didn’t notice him. Lu Ze was at the top of the food chain on the third map now. He couldn’t beat those bosses, but he could deal with the ordinary beasts rather easily.
