Astral Apostle - Chapter 70
“Then I understand.” Zhou Jing understood.
At this moment, Weber interrupted, “Their claws are good materials for making weapons, and the fur is also suitable for making better leather armor. These two are the most valuable.”
“Of course, if you choose a bear paw to bring home to eat, we have no objections,” Weiss teased.
Zhou Jing couldn’t help but glance at him.
He felt that if Weiss were to choose the spoils instead, he would go for the bear whip and bring it home to nourish his body…
(TL Note: Bear whip refers to the p*nis of the bear.)
After all, if he did not have any passion, how did he master such a well-trained crotch plucking technique?
Zhou Jing shook his head and thought about Weber’s suggestion instead.
The Claw Rending Bear’s claws were indeed tough. Even after fighting head-on with everyone for so long, it only had a few small chips on the surface of the claws. The thick fur and skin had very strong impact resistance characteristics, and they were all very good materials as well. The equipment created would definitely be much better than the ordinary equipment he currently had.
“Alright then. I want to use its sharp claws to forge two blades for myself. I’ll also use its fur to make a set of armor.”
Zhou Jing stated his requirements.
As for the blood potion, there would be a quota given by the workshop, so there was no need to specially distribute it. It mainly depended on how many blood potions the workshop could make with the two Claw Rending Bears.
He had just finished his first enhancement, so he did not plan to enhance himself again for the time being. Although this was one of the “life objectives” needed to clear the stage, he felt that he needed to be steady.
Furthermore, he still owed Barong a debt. He felt that it was better to pay it back first.
Hearing this, everyone nodded. This request was very reasonable. The materials for the two Splitting Claw Bears were completely enough.
Everyone immediately looked at Weber. According to his contributions, Weber’s choice of spoils would definitely be before the others.
“I don’t need the materials. Just give me an extra portion of income when you sell them.”
Weber waved his hand, speaking in a serious tone.
Then, he turned to look at Zhou Jing and said in a deep voice, “Jason·Wood… Your strength is not bad. It’s hard to believe that you just completed your enhancement. If there are any hunting opportunities in the future, I’ll consider calling you along.”
After the battle just now, Weber realized that Zhou Jing was more powerful than an ordinary hunter. He no longer planned to treat him as a newcomer.
In the entire White Plains Town, there were only three second enhancement hunters. Every additional reliable character was good news for Weber. He did not hesitate to send out an invitation to Zhou Jing—seeking reliable teammates was also very important to hunters.
Hearing this, the others also responded one after another, indicating that if they encountered an opportunity in the future, they would also call Zhou Jing to hunt together.
Zhou Jing responded to all of them positively and did not refuse a single one.
Knowing that he was recognized by the hunters in White Plains Town, he integrated in to the circle of hunters and made everyone remember him.
Not long after, everyone finished up with the distribution of the spoils and arranged for Weiss to run the errand of informing the soldiers at the back that there was no need to continue setting up traps. At the same time, he was to call over more manpower to help transport the prey back to the city.
Zhou Jing also went to the side to rest. Only then did he have the time to open the interface and look at the flashing notifications.
[Triggered achievement: First Kill of Mutant Beast – High Risk!]
[Obtained 1,000 Astral Points, [Aptitude Enhancement – Physical Fitness (Small)] x1, [Aptitude Enhancement – Resistance (Small)] x1, [Attribute Enhancement – Physical Fitness (Slight)] x1
[Life Objective [Hunting High Risk Mutant Beasts] has been completed.]
[Acquired 30 Information State Particles]
[Current Apostle Permanence Progress: 30/110]
When the previous apostle killed the white spider monster, he triggered the achievement of obtaining the first kill of a dangerous mutant beast. As for the first kill of a high-risk mutant beast, he naturally had achievements as well. The reward was even more than what he got for the former achievement.
Zhou Jing took a look and stored the rewards for increasing his aptitude and attributes in the Achievement Warehouse. There was no need to use them now.
In order not to waste them, he thought about it and felt that it was best to completely confirm that an apostle could clear the stage first or that the apostle template was extremely valuable before using the achievement reward.
He felt that the accumulated achievements and rewards would be more useful if used in this manner.
Speaking of clearing the level, this time, his “Kill-Stealing” had completed one of his “life objectives.” The 30 Information State Particles he obtained had advanced the progress towards clearing the stage.
“This means that every time I complete a life objective, I should be able to obtain Information State particles. But, is the reward for all life objectives enough to reach the passing standard, or is it not certain?” Zhou Jing was puzzled about this.
According to the interpretation, the Information State Particle was a resource that could only be obtained when the Astral Apostle affected the current plane.
He had yet to obtain such resources from his daily activities and achievements, so he was not sure what level he had to reach to produce such resources.
The most important way to obtain it was to complete the “life objective.”
Not long after, the army of White Plains Town rushed over with tools. With the help of the hunters, they slowly dragged the two extremely heavy corpses.
It was already late at night when the hunters met the two mutated beasts in the evening and transported their prey back to White Plains Town.
Lord Lutt welcomed them at the city gate. When he saw everyone return, he immediately came forward.
“Thank you for your hard work. On behalf of White Plains Town, I thank everyone for your efforts!”
Weber shook his head. “There’s no need to be polite. Let the workshop’s people deal with the prey first… I’m afraid such a huge corpse can’t be stuffed through the city gate.”
“Of course. I’ve already given the orders.”
Lord Lutt waved his hand and got the hunter workshop staff, who had been waiting at the side, to start working. They dealt with the carcass of the Claw Rending Bears on the spot.
After doing this, Lutt turned around and secretly sized up the state of the hunters. When he realized that no one had died, his eyes flashed with surprise.
