Chapter 249: Mutation, Yellow Spring Lily
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Lin Yuan had already made plans to go out for training early tomorrow morning, so he agreed to meet Gao Feng at 3 p.m.
After completing the deal with Gao Feng, Lin Yuan had to go see his master, the Moon Empress, at the Radiant Moon Palace at night to have a final question-and-answer practice before going out for training.
Since there were only less than four hours left, Lin Yuan immediately logged onto Star Web and went to the Rare Lifeform Pavilion to purchase the Spirit Spring Lilies that Gao Feng had chosen.
For the support-type plant fey, Spirit Spring Lily, although it was relatively rare and expensive, it was not too hard to buy it in the Rare Lifeform Pavilion. That was because it was a kind of purely support-type fey without a high demand in the market.
The Spirit Spring Lily did not have offensive capabilities or control capabilities. Rather, it was a support-type plant fey that could inject a large amount of spirit qi into other feys’ bodies to increase the strength of their abilities.
While the high-grade Spirit Spring Lily activated its ability, the spirit qi that gushed out of its bud was like a spouting spirit spring.
Although the Spirit Spring Lily’s support ability was very powerful, its spirit qi professional was in an awkward situation, as the spirit qi professional could only rely on their teammates, no matter what.
If it were to be said that it was just like Poison Beauty’s situation—where her contracted feys were extremely suitable for Star Tower duels and not a team of spirit qi professionals—then this contracted Spirit Spring Lily’s spirit qi professional would only be suitable to join a team and not the Star Tower duel.
However, after a support-type spirit qi professional contracted a Spirit Spring Lily, they could be comparable to a healing-type spirit qi professional in a team.
This kind of spirit qi professional was even more powerful than a healing-type spirit qi professional in certain teams. However, the premise was that one needed to have a stable and reliable team of spirit qi professionals.
Lin Yuan somewhat did not understand. Gao Feng had contracted a Breeze Hibiscus, which was a kind of support-type plant fey that condensed spirit qi.
These three Spirit Spring Lilies were clearly in line with Gao Feng’s fey compatibility, and he was obviously going to contract them.
Lin Yuan could not help but reveal a puzzled expression. Was Gao Feng trying to make himself into a battlefield spirit qi launching silo?
The higher the grade of a fey like the Spirit Spring Lily, the more obvious its role would be in a team. This meant that the Spirit Spring Lily was a kind of fey that had extremely high requirements for resources.
Since the Gao family was the richest family in Wind Mist City, Gao Feng naturally had the means to provide for three Spirit Spring Lilies. It was just that such a way of pairing feys was a bit too extreme.
Lin Yuan was the kind of person who did not like to have his fate in the hands of others, but Gao Feng’s choice of contracted feys was akin to handing his fate into the hands of his teammates.
Lin Yuan bought three Spirit Spring Lilies from the Star Web’s Rare Lifeform Pavilion and soon received them through Ostrich Logistics.
An accident occurred when he enhanced these three feys. One of the Spirit Spring Lily underwent a mutation when it got promoted to Bronze and turned into a Yellow Spring Lily.
This surprised Lin Yuan, as the probability of a Spirit Spring Lily mutating into a Yellow Spring Lily was simply too low.
Although it did not exist only in legends like the Blue Flash Butterfly mutating into the Blue Flash Purple Butterfly, it was not much different from the probability of winning 5,000,000 dollars with a lottery ticket.
If this Yellow Spring Lily did not consume too much spiritual energy for the contract, Lin Yuan would have wanted to keep it.
At present, Lin Yuan could only use a trace of spiritual energy from his mind, which could only contract a Normal/Normal fey.
Even if Lin Yuan’s spiritual energy increased a little after eating the Cinnabar Osmanthus Haworthia fruits, he would rather contract more Normal/Normal feys and slowly nurture them with that spiritual energy.
He would not be willing to contract a Bronze Yellow Spring Lily and waste so much of his spiritual energy.
Because the Spirit-Gather Goldfish and the Blue Flash Purple Butterfly were stuck at Bronze X/Legend and lacked a suitable Willpower Rune to advance to a Fantasy Breed, Morbius could not be promoted to Silver due to their grades.
As a result, Morbius’ Spirit Lock spatial zone had been unable to unlock the fourth Spirit Lock position. Even if Morbius was promoted to Silver, Lin Yuan would not let it use Spirit Lock on the Yellow Spring Lily.
This was because the Yellow Spring Lily’s ability was not suitable for Morbius’ Spirit Lock.
The Yellow Spring Lily could sacrifice itself in a battle to restore a wounded fey to its full strength and would then enter a withered state and take a long time to recover. The target fey’s grade must be lower than that of the Yellow Spring Lily.
Therefore, Morbius’ Spirit Lock clashed with the Yellow Spring Lily’s sacrificial ability.
The people around Lin Yuan were not suitable to contract this Yellow Spring Lily either, so he wanted to ask Gao Feng’s opinion about this Yellow Spring Lily.
Gao Feng should be very interested in contracting this Yellow Spring Lily.
A Yellow Spring Lily could play a support role and raise a support-type spirit qi professional’s strategic position in the team above the main output members. This was because the Yellow Spring Lily’s ability could greatly increase the mistake tolerance in a team.
Many five-member teams tended to revolve around one or two main feys. The Spirit Spring Lily’s role was akin to letting the team’s main fey recover to its full strength instantly, no matter how severe its injuries were, as long as it did not die.
A Bronze/Epic Yellow Spring Lily was much higher in value than a Bronze/Epic Spirit Spring Lily. Thus, when trading, Lin Yuan naturally could not calculate the price of a Bronze/Epic Yellow Spring Lily based on the previously agreed price on trading a Bronze/Epic Spirit Spring Lily.
Nonetheless, Gao Feng and the Gao family behind him should be willing to and could pay for this Bronze/Epic Yellow Spring Lily.
At the same time, Lin Yuan was also looking forward to the peculiar Island Whale that Gao Feng would bring later that had yet to hatch from the jewel-like egg.
If a fey like the Island Whale experienced any abnormalities, there would only be one possibility—mutation.
Lin Yuan could not help but look forward to the difference between the mutated Island Whale that Gao Feng had mentioned and a normal one, so much so that Gao Feng was willing to regard such a strategic resource as his trump card to exchange with him.
Given the heritage of an affluent family like the Gao family, he would never easily take out important strategic resources.
Therefore, there must be an immense problem with this mutated Island Whale, so much so that even the Gao family felt that it was useless in its hands.
Not long after Lin Yuan enhanced three Spirit Spring Lilies and obtained two Bronze/Epic Spirit Spring Lilies and one Bronze/Epic Yellow Spring Lily, his cell phone rang. He glanced at it and found that it was Gao Feng.
“Brother, hehe! I’m already at the agreed place. It’s a mansion? Brother, you have good taste. I looked at your place from outside, and it’s pretty good!”
Upon hearing that, Lin Yuan replied, “Wait for me at the gate. I’ll have someone fetch you in.”
Lin Yuan went downstairs and asked Wen Yu to bring him in. In Lin Yuan’s opinion, his deal with Gao Feng in a moment would be a process of enriching his resources.
He could get the rare spiritual materials or feys that the Star Web’s Rare Lifeform Pavilion did not sell through this deal. Soon, Wen Yu brought Gao Feng to the mansion’s entrance.
The jade-textured old pearwood inscribed board carved with ‘Return from Faraway’ was hung under the mansion’s eaves and emitted a gold-red luster under the sunlight. The luster seemed to contain a simple wood texture.
Gao Feng had felt the difference of this mansion the moment he entered it.
Since it was late autumn, high-grade feys also changed accordingly because of the change of the season. For example, some tree feys would lose their leaves in late autumn, and flower feys would not bloom in winter but would be dormant.
But all the plants in the mansion seemed unaffected by the season. They were still verdant and lush.
Although the temperature inside and outside the mansion was the same, the plants’ growth was just like the peak of summer.
Gao Feng had arrived at the mansion’s entrance. Even though he had yet to step into the mansion, he could sense a large amount of spirit qi and a faint jade luster. He was shocked and was familiar with this jade luster alone.
