Zhou Zhou raised his eyebrows.
"You can actually kill a Black Iron-Tier Intermediate Grade monster?" He looked at Bai Yi and the others in surprise.
"This is all thanks to Zhang Cang. If he hadn't taken the initiative to stand up and attract this Desert Fog Lizard that wanted to escape… We may really have to watch it escape." Bai Yi said.
Zhou Zhou turned to Zhang Cang.
"Yes, my Lord! Even though this Desert Fog Lizard is a monster of Black Iron-Tier Intermediate Grade, my soldier characteristics make me good at defense, so I can still withstand one or two attacks from it."
"Of course I wouldn't be able to withstand anything excessive. In addition, I know that there's an invincible protective barrier behind me."
"That's why I dared to walk out of the protective barrier to attract this monster." Zhang Cang did not take the full credit either.
"Brave and resourceful. Well done." Zhou Zhou praised.
He then took the loot from the Black Iron-Tier Elementary Grade Desert Fog Lizard and placed his hand on the Black Iron-Tier Intermediate Grade Lizard.
The golden notification appeared again.
[Do you want to retrieve the loot?]
"Yes!" Zhou Zhou said.
[Lord Talent Hint: You have obtained the loots— four units of Mist Cores (Black Iron-Tier), 40 units of Desert Fog Lizard flesh (Black Iron-Tier Intermediate Grade), 3 kg water bag, one copy of the Sword Shield Soldier Class Change Certificate (Gradeless), one copy of the Sword Shield Soldier Recruitment Book (Black Iron-Tier Intermediate Grade)!]
The same scene appeared again.
The Desert Fog Lizard's corpse exploded, becoming a small mountain of loot.
The surrounding people were dumbfounded again.
Zhang Cang, who was seeing this scene for the first time, was also stunned.
Zhou Zhou took the Sword Shield Soldier Class Change Certificate and the Sword Shield Soldier Recruitment Book. Then, they carried the remaining loots to the entrance of the Lord's wooden house.
After that, he asked the couple to roast 20 units of flesh for everyone to eat. The conditions were tough now so they could only make do with such simple food.
Zhou Zhou looked at the new loot in his hand when everyone left to patrol the surroundings.
He knew what the Sword Shield Soldier Class Change Certificate was so he turned his attention to the Sword Shield Soldier Recruitment Book instead.
[Item Name: Sword Shield Soldier Recruitment Book]
[Item Level: Black Iron-Tier Intermediate Grade]
[Item Effect: Basic Soldier Recruitment Book! Throw it into the Gate of Summoning and you'll be able to summon a Black Iron-Tier Elementary Grade Sword Shield Soldier with Black Iron-Tier Intermediate Grade Potential as your subject!]
[Item Description: One of the sources of the Myriad Realm Lords' forces. Only the lucky among the Lords can obtain it.]
"I can actually summon a soldier directly?"
Zhou Zhou's eyes lit up.
He immediately brought it to the Gate of Summoning and threw it in.
A man wearing standard armor, holding an iron shield in his left hand and a blade in his right, walked out of the Gate of Summoning in no time.
"Your subject, Huang Shi greets, my Lord!" He bowed respectfully.
"No need for formalities!" Zhou Zhou nodded.
He looked at the other party's stats. He was indeed of Black Iron-Tier Intermediate Grade potential and his strength was of Black Iron-Tier Elementary Grade!
Zhou Zhou was very satisfied even though this soldier's potential was very low. He only had two ranked soldiers after all!
At this moment, he looked outside the protective shield with a sudden bold idea.
lightsΝοvεl ƈοmIf more Desert Fog Lizards could drop this Sword Shield Soldier Recruitment Book, wouldn't I have an endless source of Sword Shield Soldiers? His heart pounded at that thought.
He knew that this idea was unrealistic after he calmed down a moment later.
First: The Desert Fog Lizard could not exist indefinitely. This wasn't a game. It would not respawn after killing it.
Secondly, the Desert Fog Lizard was definitely not the only fog monster in the vast Blazing Sun Desert.
The loot that the other types monsters drop might not necessarily include recruitment books.
Zhou Zhou called the last subject who did not have a profession over and handed him the Class Change Certificate, allowing him to also change his Class to a Sword Shield Soldier.
Then, he asked his new soldier and Huang Shi to search for Bai Yi and Zhang Cang to deal with the surrounding fog monsters.
Time passed quickly.
Two hours passed in the blink of an eye. During this period, Zhou Zhou kept using the newly obtained Sword Shield Soldier Recruitment Books to summon new soldiers one after another and asked them to help Bai Yi and the others.
The result was six new Sword Shield Soldiers under his command after two hours!
There were five with Black Iron-Tier Intermediate Grade potential and one with Black Iron-Tier Advance Grade potential among them!
That brought his total force of soldiers up to 10!
Zhang Yun and the others had killed 18 Desert Fog Lizards in two hours and had successfully cleaned up all the Desert Fog Lizards within 100 meters of the protective barrier. The territory was temporarily safe!
Bai Yi had successfully broken through to the Black Iron-Tier Intermediate Grade since she killed the most monsters!
There were a total of 12 Black Iron-Tier Elementary Grade, five Black Iron-Tier Intermediate Grade Iron and one Elite Black Iron-Tier Advance Grade Desert Desert Fog Lizards killed!
With the help of his Lord Talent, they dropped:
52 units of Black Iron-Tier Mist Core, 240 units of Black Iron-Tier Elementary Grade Desert Fog Lizard flesh, 200 units of Black Iron-Tier Intermediate Grade Desert Fog Lizard flesh and 100 units of Black Iron-Tier Advance Grade Desert Fog Lizard flesh!
A total of 37 kg of water bag, 18 Black Iron-Tier Elementary Grade Class Change Certificates (Gradeless), five Black Iron-Tier Intermediate Grade [Sword Shield Soldier Recruitment Book] and one Black Iron-Tier Advance Grade [Sword Shield Soldier Recruitment Book] (Used)!
The final loot was a Black Iron-Tier Advance Grade skill, Sand Stealth!
[Skill Name: Sand Stealth]
[Skill Quality: Black Iron-Tier Advance Grade]
[Skill Description: Controls the sand under your feet and allows you to quickly burrow into the desert. It can be used to quickly travel, hide, and escape under the desert.]
This skill book was the loot that the Elite Desert Fog Lizard had dropped.
Zhou Zhou slapped the skill book with both hands.
A text notification appeared.
[Do you want to learn the skill Sand Stealth?]
"Yes!" Zhou Zhou said.
A text notification appeared the next moment.
The skill book in his hand turned into countless golden lights and fused into his glabella.
Zhou Zhou closed his eyes and re-opened them again after some time.
He looked at the ground under his feet and had a strange feeling that he could control the sand under his feet.
"I'm in a desert territory so this Sand Stealth Technique will definitely be very useful to me!" Zhou Zhou was very satisfied with his first skill.
He kept the other loot as backup.
"I'm here to report, my Lord! We've already cleaned up all the Desert Fog Lizards within 100 meters of the protective barrier. We have yet to find other types of fog monsters."
"Should we explore further to kill monsters further away?" Bai Yi asked respectfully.
