Global Online Survival - Chapter 20
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
A foot-tall small tree with a translucent body, even the leaves had blood-colored light circulating in them, as if carved from blood diamonds.
This Strange Blood Tree was finally revived under Ye Jun’s irrigation of his blood offering day and night. The properties could be seen as follows:
“Strange Blood Tree: something born from absorbing the purest blood, bearing Bloodline Fruits that have a certain chance of awakening the bloodline within a creature’s body!”
No wonder a boss-level giant alligator could appear in that swamp. It had obviously eaten the Bloodline Fruit to awaken the genes of an ancient giant alligator.
At this moment, a thumb-sized blood-colored fruit was hanging from the Strange Blood Tree.
The blood fruit was translucent, blooming with the glow of blood as if it was a blood diamond. What was even more amazing was that there seemed to be a small fish swimming inside.
Could it be because all that was used to water the blood tree was fish blood?
“If I eat it, I won’t turn into a fish, will I?”
In terms of evolution, the genes in humans and fish were partially similar.
He probably wouldn’t turn into a fish, but perhaps, he would awaken some of the features or genes of fish.
Ye Jun did not hurry, as he slowly thought about it. He felt that, for the time being, there was no need to take the risk.
He could first find another creature to try the efficacy of the Bloodline Fruit. Anyway, the Strange Blood Tree was already here with him, and as long as there was a constant flow of blood watering it, it would continue to bear fruit.
Ye Jun plucked the Bloodline Fruit, came to the stern, and pulled the electric ray out of the water.
“Absorbed electricity, +5 Electrical Energy.”
After a night of rest, the electric ray was fully charged again.
Ye Jun stuffed the Bloodline Fruit into the electric ray’s mouth.
The next moment, the electric ray trembled madly.
All kinds of electric arcs jumped madly on the electric ray’s back.
The electric current that had just been drained was revived again, and the flow was bigger and larger than before.
At the same time, the electric ray’s body was also expanding dramatically.
The original two-meter body swelled to nearly five meters in a flash.
“Electric Ray Boss (juvenile stage): level 4.”
Ye Jun’s eyes widened.
The original level two electric ray had been raised to level four, and it had become a boss.
This was a huge profit.
Not only was it an upgrade, but the benefits of killing these bosses would be greater than killing normal monsters.
Didn’t this mean that one could use the Bloodline Fruit to constantly create bosses?
At that time, other people would be fighting monsters while he farmed bosses every day.
Days like those… The thought of it was numbing.
Not just the thought, but at this moment, Ye Jun was indeed numb.
The electric ray began to discharge again.
A series of electric charges made every pore of Ye Jun’s body open. The strong stimulation made Ye Jun’s body tingle, almost causing him to fall headfirst into the sea.
After the upgrade, the electric ray’s power did not just double, but more than two to three times than that.
If Ye Jun had encountered it before the awakening of his lightning spells, he probably would’ve been electrocuted to death.
Fortunately, he now cultivated the lightning spells, and his resistance to lightning had become much stronger. Plus, he had gotten quite used to being electrocuted in the past few days.
Even so, Ye Jun could not help but exhale a long breath. It wasn’t after a long while he stood up on a wooden pole of the ship.
“Absorbed electricity, +5 Electrical Energy. Current Electrical Energy Level: 1 (37/100)”
It was a pity that Ye Jun’s Lightning Affinity was only 10 points, meaning he could only absorb 10 points of Electrical Energy per day. Otherwise, it would not take long to level up.
However, this was still good. It was enough to receive an electric shock once everyday.
The Bloodline Fruit was a cost-effective way of cultivating bosses, but he didn’t don’t know if it could make wild monsters level up without limit.
Even if it could not, once this electric ray outlived its usefulness, killing it would drop equipment and give EXP.
Moreover, if the blood of the electric ray was used to water the Strange Blood Tree, could the Bloodline Fruit that was produced enhance his lightning level?
It was possible!
Ye Jun wasn’t in a hurry. Anyway, with the Strange Blood Tree in hand, he could keep doing experiments.
What he currently had to do was to save up money and collect supplies for a small merchant ship.
It had been raining for the past few days. He was quite fed up from getting wet.
Moreover, looking at the situation, it was the monsoon season. And who knew when the storm would come back, so building a ship was the most important thing right now.
Ye Jun moved the fireplace out of the wooden house.
He couldn’t forge for the past few days due to the rain, but now that the skies were clear, he could finally continue forging.
Currently, forging weapons was the fastest way to make money.
Ye Jun carried out a large bag of copper ingots from the wooden house.
These were the copper ingots obtained from smelting ores for the past few days. It totaled up to 33 pieces.
The sound of bashing metal rang out over the sea.
“Forged successfully, +1 Forging Proficiency, Bronze Spearhead: +10% Sharpness.”
“Forging successfully, +1 Forging Proficiency, Bronze Arrowhead: +10% Armor Penetration.”
The beep of a successful forge kept ringing.
A few hours passed, and Ye Jun had three more bronze spearheads and more than thirty bronze arrowheads in front of him.
Six bronze ingots had been used up.
Ye Jun spent another hour making spear shafts and arrow shafts.
Finally, three bronze spears and thirty-five bronze arrows were made.
He listed the bronze spears on the trading channel.
Afterward, Ye Jun gave Zhuang Xiaoqiang, Master De, and Master Bei each ten bronze arrows.
This was pre-ordered by the three in the past.
One bronze arrow cost 100 copper coins.
Three copper ingots created 35 arrows—the price was similar to a bronze spear.
And forging bronze arrows could get more Forging Proficiency, so why not?
Soon, the three bronze spears were also bought.
All of them were bought by unknown players.
As the game progressed, more and more players would collect a large number of bronze coins.
This was a game of survival of the fittest, and with time, the weak would continue to be eliminated, but likewise, more and more people would rise.
Many people complained about having money but not grabbing it in time, expressing hope that they could find Ye Jun to reserve weapons.
Ye Jun was also a bit helpless. Now, he had to fish and control the doll to search for supplies under the sea, but also forge metal. He truly wished he had several clones of himself.
The good thing was that with the increase in proficiency, his forging speed was getting faster and faster.
At first, it took an hour to build a bronze spearhead, but now it only took half an hour.
Day and night, Ye Jun spent two days forging ten more bronze spears and more than a hundred arrows.
As long as he sold all these weapons, adding to his stash of 30000 bronze coins, it would almost be enough to buy the supplies to build a small merchant ship.
At this time, a message suddenly came through.
“Yang Tianxing requests a call!”
Ye Jun casually opened the call channel and was instantly taken aback.
A guy with a dirty body and messy hair appeared on the screen. He simply looked no better than a beggar.
“Old Yang, how did you become like this?”
“It’s all your fault! Setting the prices of weapons so high! Otherwise, why would my brother be so desperately saving money? Not only does he have to hunt and fish during the day, but he also has to cut down trees at night!”
Suddenly, a girl with glasses and a pretty face broke into the shot.
