As the City Lordess of Redbud City, it wasn’t exaggerating to say that Ling Xiao had to make use of every minute of the day. All major and minor matters within Redbud City required her attention and decisions.
Previously, when Redbud City had issued the reward to him, Ling Xiao hadn’t appeared personally. It was one of her subordinate officers instead. In Lin Yuan’s opinion, it was already his great honor, nonetheless.
But now, the Redbud City Lordess, Ling Xiao, actually looked for him personally.
Ling Xiao: “Lin Yuan, I am Redbud City Lordess Ling Xiao. Two days later, someone will fetch you from the Xia Region. By then, someone will contact you directly. You might need to make preparations for a long-distance trip.”
When Lin Yuan received Ling Xiao’s message, he used his hands to rub his temples. The message came in a very sudden manner, and Lin Yuan didn’t know the purpose of the trip. The message that Ling Xiao sent didn’t contain any information either. When Ling Xiao sent this message, instead of saying it was an inquiry, it was more of a notification.
Lin Yuan recalled the benefits that Elder Ning had mentioned before. As of now, he had only obtained a piece of land with a store within Redbud City. However, the benefits that Elder Ning had mentioned definitely didn’t refer to this store and land. In other words, this trip might be for a benefit that even Elder Ning would be envious of.
If it was a long-distance trip, Lin Yuan didn’t have much he had to prepare for. If there was anything to prepare, it would be to accumulate more energy ores within the Spirit Lock spatial zone so as to have a constant supply.
Thus, Lin Yuan directly purchased another 10,000 catties of low-grade energy ores and 10,000 catties of mid-grade energy ores from Big Sister Xin.
Low-grade energy ores contained spirit qi that was five times as concentrated as inferior energy ores, while mid-grade energy ores contained spirit qi five times as concentrated as low-grade energy ores.
When purchasing this batch of low-grade and mid-grade energy ores, the price was indeed much higher than the inferior energy ores. However, when purchasing such fundamental resources, Lin Yuan didn’t feel any constraint at all.
When transporting the 10,000 catties of low-grade and mid-grade energy ores into the Spirit Lock spatial zone, Lin Yuan noticed that the Sword Horn Speed Antelope was already standing up on the Pure Land of Bliss.
Lin Yuan approached to check and realized that the Sword Horn Speed Antelope’s injuries had already recovered during this period of time. When the Sword Horn Speed Antelope saw Lin Yuan walking over, it immediately rushed over and stopped in front of Lin Yuan. It extended its tongue to lick at Lin Yuan’s fingers. It was a sign of it thanking Lin Yuan for rescuing it from its severely injured state.
Lin Yuan then took some Bronze Usnea vines and fed them to the Sword Horn Speed Antelope. After recovering, the Sword Horn Speed Antelope ate the leaves on the Bronze Usnea vines. Its great appetite had finally been restored.
Lin Yuan watched the Sword Horn Speed Antelope eat. The Sword Horn Speed Antelope was already a Silver X/Elite fey when it was injured, and it was just one step away from reaching gold-grade.
In addition, Lin Yuan felt that his spirit qi concentration within his D-rank spirit qi professional’s body had already reached the full capacity. The misty spirit qi within his body felt as though it could transform into liquid spirit qi at any moment.
Previously when Lin Yuan had been promoted into a D-rank spirit qi professional, the amount of misty spirit qi within his body had only one streak. Right now, his body was filled with spirit qi that had all converted into misty spirit qi.
When the misty spirit qi clashed and was about to condense into liquid form, it would scatter again. Lin Yuan knew that he required an opportunity. If he wanted to continue evolving Bronze Usneas to break through this barrier, it would be the same as dripping water to penetrate a stone. If he was able to evolve this Silver Sword Horn Speed Antelope to gold-grade, it would be the same as a concentrated torrent, allowing Lin Yuan to blast through this obstacle.
Lin Yuan placed his hand on the Sword Horn Speed Antelope, which had already eaten to its full, and he circulated his spiritual power at full force. He made use of the spirit qi within the Spirit Lock spatial zone, which was several times more concentrated than the outside world, to enhance the Sword Horn Speed Antelope.
Lin Yuan was uncertain how long it would take to evolve a Silver fey to gold-grade, but in order to not delay the appointment he had two days later with Ling Xiao, Lin Yuan set an alarm.
It was unknown how long passed as Lin Yuan converted and channeled spirit qi for thousands of times. Ultimately, it broke through the obstructive layer within the Sword Horn Speed Antelope with undying determination and spirit.
The moment when the obstruction was broken through, the Sword Horn Speed Antelope’s body glowed with a resplendent golden luster. At that moment, the Sword Horn Speed Antelope was going through a life-changing metamorphosis. It was progressing from Silver X to Gold.
During the metamorphosis, the Sword Horn Speed Antelope’s horns were the first to transform. The Sword Horn Speed Antelope’s sword horns were straight like a sharp sword, but now, its straight horns didn’t continue growing. Instead, they were actually shrinking and transforming into curved horns.
The Sword Horn Speed Antelope’s body size shrunk in just a moment until it was just a third of the original size. Its coffee-colored fur was also constantly turning lighter and finally ending toward more of a khaki and milky color.
When the originally nimble Sword Horn Speed Antelope reached gold-grade, it underwent a thorough spiritual mutation. It was now a small cute lifeform.
After shrinking down, the Sword Horn Speed Antelope’s legs became slender and longer. They were filled with power, and it gave the body a streamlined shape and more explosive power, allowing it to become even more nimble.
The Sword Horn Speed Antelope wasn’t just able to use its basic ability to smash enemies with its sword horns, but it could even use the sword horns to slice at the air to form air blades that could attack enemies from a distance. With the Sword Horn Speed Antelope’s nimble movements, it could easily take the role of a long-distance assassin.
Lin Yuan used True Data to check on the Gold Sword Horn Speed Antelope. This cute little antelope in front of him already had a different name after reaching gold-grade. It was no longer called the Sword Horn Speed Antelope.
[Fey Name]: Wind Speed Rapid Antelope
[Fey Species]: Artiodactyla genus/Antelope species
[Fey Grade]: Gold (1/10)
[Fey Type]: Wind
[Fey Quality]: Elite
[Horn Smash]: Using the horns on the head to smash the enemy.
[Horn Blade]: Using the sharp horns to slice the air and form air blades to attack and slash enemies from afar.
[Protection of Wind]: Wind energy floats around the body’s surface, forming a layer of wind force shield.
[Sword Strike Storm]: Summons a storm that covers a massive area, conducting a large sweeping attack. The storm is filled with air swords that could slice metal plates.
[Agile Wind]: When controlling the wind, it could increase the flow of wind and increase the speed of wind-type abilities.
The Wind Speed Rapid Antelope was a rather uncommon evolution path for the Sword Horn Speed Antelope. It gave up on its close-combat capabilities and turned into a violent spellcaster.
It was rather obvious just by looking at the gold ability, Sword Strike Storm. The Wind Speed Rapid Antelope could circulate spiritual power to summon a storm that covered a massive area, conducting a sweeping attack. The storm even contained air swords that could cut metal plates.
It was considered an extremely violent multi-target ability. Apart from the Sword Horn Speed Antelope’s basic ability, all the other abilities were a perfect combination for the Wind Speed Rapid Antelope.
