Chapter 254 – Dou Qi Branch (1)
Qi Xia sighed and said: “There are at least more than 20 kinds of herbs in here that you can’t buy on the market. Though I know of several people who have these herbs, most likely they will not sell them. If you really want to get these medicinal herbs on top of the list, I can actually tell you a few ways.”
“What ways?” Shen Yanxiao stared at Qi Xia. She believed that with Qi Xia’s sly-fox ability as a merchant, his network had more or less surpassed what she could imagine.
“First, you can go to the Black City and find those people from mercenary corps as they often have some precious medicinal materials for sale. But of course, their price is very high. Second, on the northern side of the Long Xuan Empire, there’s the Golden Palace Hall which has a lot of the herbs you need. Third, the Divine Wind Alliance.”
Except for the Black City, Shen Yanxiao wouldn’t be able to go to the other two places for now. Gathering all the medicinal herbs proved to be difficult.
“Is there no other way?” Tang Nazhi slightly frowned. Things in the Black City weren’t difficult to get. However, the Golden Palace Hall and the Divine Wind Alliance were certainly a problem.
Qi Xia pondered for a moment before he said: “There’s another method to get some medicinal herbs.”
“What is it?” Shen Yanxiao asked.
“Every month, a competition is being held in your Pharmaceutical Branch, and the winner will have the permission to get one kind of precious medicinal herbs from the school’s Pharmaceutical Storehouse. But I don’t know much about the Pharmaceutical Storehouse of Holy Roland School. I don’t know how many of the herbs you need are being stored in there.”
Each branch of Holy Roland School would have a corresponding competition to promote the student’s enthusiasm for learning. The prize for the competition in the Pharmaceutical Branch was necessarily related to pharmacy. Last semester, Shangguan Xiao had won the first five consecutive months and obtained a lot of good stuff from the Holy Roland School’s Pharmaceutical Storehouse.
Shen Yanxiao’s eyes lit up. Nevermind the prize of the competition, what attracted Shen Yanxiao more was the storehouse itself.
[TL Sky: May the storehouse rest in peace.]
“Cough, don’t tell me you want to go to the storehouse and ‘collect’ things?” Qi Xia immediately guessed the idea in Shen Yanxiao’s mind. He had seen the level of this little girl’s stealing skills.
Shen Yanxiao raised her eyebrows.
Qi Xia facepalmed.
“Although your strength is strong, I still don’t recommend going to the Pharmaceutical Storehouse. It’s one of the core areas of the Holy Roland School which is being guarded by at least 10 mentors of each branches. No one knows how many defensive spells and traps have been laid in there. It’s hard to say what kind of danger you will run into if you go.” Holy Roland School didn’t lack Magicians the most. In order to ensure the safety of the school’s resources, Ouyang Huanyu, even without much effort, had set up a lot of magical defenses in every important area of Holy Roland School.
Shen Yanxiao’s strength was indeed strong, however it would still be hard to avoid the magical defenses with her current abilities.
“I suggest that you start with the pharmacists’ competition, and wait for your strength to rise before going to the storehouse.” Qi Xia was worried that if Shen Yanxiao would rashly go to the Pharmaceutical Storehouse, there would be an unexpected accident. Even though Shen Yanxiao possessed the strength of dual cultivation, she wasn’t very familiar with the Magician’s skills.
“If your Archer or Warlock’s strength has reached the Advanced level, perhaps you could try and challenge it.” Qi Xia said.
Shen Yanxiao touched her chin. According to Yun Qi’s judgment, her current level as a Warlock was only in the intermediate. If she wanted to reach the Advanced level, she still needed a long time. As for her Archer’s strength… she was not sure what her current rank was. It seemed that she had to find a time to examine it before she could make a plan again.
