Chapter 373: Cultivation by Batch
Fang Heng took the elevator to the sixth basement.
He was blocked by the alloy metal gate of the laboratory at the end of the passage.
The ventilation system on the ceiling of the passage behind him was broken again.
One after another, a large number of vine zombies holding iron shovels and hammers fell from the top.
They slowly stood up and scattered on the spot.
A zombie staggered to Fang Heng’s side and handed him a blood-stained magnetic ID card.
The ID card was earlier found on a researcher on the fifth basement.
Fang Heng took the card and scanned it on the card reader.
“Beep Beep Beep… ID verified. Welcome, Dr. Liu. ”
The alloy metal gate opened in front of Fang Heng.
Fang Heng stepped into the laboratory.
“Ha, I’m coming for you, babe. ”
Fang Heng was in a good mood when he saw the laboratory filled with Tyrant form cultivation pods.
Previously, he had lured the players and NPCs from the sixth basement into the fifth basement to kill them. While he did it to prevent triggering the alarm of the sixth basement, Fang Heng was more worried that the battle would result in the destruction of the cultivation pods.
Since they could be used to create Tyrants, even the destruction of one would make Fang Heng feel pained.
Fang Heng walked forward and extended his hand to touch a Tyrant form cultivation pod.
“Item: Tyrant T103’s cultivation pod (mass-produced) . Hint: this cultivation pod is in operation. Cultivation completion rate: 90% . A catalyst can be used to accelerate cultivation. ”
Fang Heng walked to the experimental command station at the side.
He had learned about the operation of Tyrant T103’s cultivation pod (mass-produced) when he was in Pine City.
In fact, he had even personally practiced operating it.
The Tyrant forms in the cultivation pods had yet to fully take shape. When the pods were first designed, Meteorite Company had set up an emergency cancellation feature in them for safety reasons.
Once the feature was activated, an special anti-virus liquid would be injected, and those half-finished products could be easily killed.
Fang Heng skillfully entered a string of commands on the experimental command station.
Buzz… Ka Ka Ka…
The 42 Tyrant form cultivation pods’ emergency cancellation features were activated at the same time.
The pale yellow liquid in the cultivation pods was slowly extracted, and green anti-virus liquid was poured into them.
Gulp, gulp, gulp…
A series of bubbles emerged from the Tyrant forms’ bodies that were soaked in the green liquid.
Their originally strong bodies rapidly dissolved in the green liquid.
“Hint: you have activated the Tyrant T103’s cultivation pod (mass-produced) ‘s emergency cancellation feature. The Tyrant forms in cultivation have died. ”
Fang Heng reached out and pressed the red button.
The green liquid in the cultivation pods was extracted again.
Bang! Bang Bang!
When the liquid was drained, the cultivation pod doors opened automatically one after another.
“It’s your turn. ”
As Fang Heng spoke, the vine zombies standing beside Fang Heng walked forward one by one. They removed the zombies that had been deeply decomposed from the cultivation pods and walked into the cultivation pods.
“I hope I’m lucky enough to get more Tyrant form zombies this time. ” Fang Heng rubbed his hands nervously.
“Damn it, I wish Old Mr. Mo was here. ”
While talking to himself, Fang Heng pressed the red button.
The pod doors closed again.
With the injection of the yellow viral nutrient solution, rows of game hints appeared on Fang Heng’s retina.
“Hint: your zombie clone is experiencing abnormality. ”
“Hint: Your zombie clone is attempting to undergo an even more high-tier transformation. ”
“Hint: authentication completed. Currently, you can only target your zombie clone. Transformation can not be used on a proliferator. ”
“Hint: current transformation success rate: 31% . ”
“Hint: current remaining transformation time: 300 hours. ”
“Hint: you can use up survival points to greatly reduce the transformation time. ”
“Hint: detected that the zombie clone has undergone corpse vine transformation. Current transformation can be fused with the original transformation at the same time. Estimated fusion level: low… ”
“Hint: you can choose transformation overlay (after overlaying, the original corpse vine transformation’s enhancement effect disappears) . Alternatively, you can choose fusion transformation (after fusion transformation is completed, the corpse vine transformation’s effect will remain) . ”
“Hint: current transformation overlay success rate: 31% ; current fusion transformation success rate: 17% . ”
“Hint: after the transformation is completed, there is still a great risk. Player will need to spend additional survival points and evolution crystals to eliminate this risk. ”
“Hint: because Tyrant T103’s cultivation pod (mass-produced)’s evolution liquid has been specially modified, per Tyrant T103, you can additionally spend 1,000 survival points, twenty complete crystallization crystals, and one Tier 1 crystallization crystal to access the additional options available. Option 1 (highly-efficient evolution overlay) : transformation overlay success rate increases to 45%. No fusion transformation ability. Option 2 (highly-efficient fusion evolution) : fusion transformation success rate increases to 27% . No transformation overlay ability. ”
Seeing the game hints that appeared, Fang Heng was stunned.
Those in Night Owl actually modified the Tyrant form cultivation pods’ solution such that there were two different options to choose from for leveling up.
It was a pleasant surprise to Fang Heng.
Fang Heng felt that those in Night Owl were interesting, and he checked the explanation again.
The so-called transformation overlay was to transform the vine zombies into Tyrant form zombies, and the fusion transformation was to transform the vine zombies into a combination of Tyrant form and vine zombie.
Of course, Fang Heng was going to do things to the end and choose fusion transformation.
However, there was a problem. There were a total of 42 zombies that needed to be evolved.
Fang Heng’s survival points were adequate, but where would he get the evolution crystals needed?
Just the first transformation required 840 complete crystallization crystals and 42 Tier 1 crystallization crystals.
Apart from that, after the fusion with the Tyrant forms was completed, Fang Heng would need to use Tier 1 evolution crystals to make the zombie clones’ evolution permanent.
The crystallization crystals that he owned were all left in District 8. Currently, he only had three high-energy crystals which could not be put to use since he the number of required crystals were much higher.
At this juncture, where could he find evolution crystals?
Fang Heng scratched his hair in annoyance and narrowed his eyes.
There was no other way at the moment, so he could only bite the bullet and take some from the Night Owl players.
Fang Heng calculated in his heart for a moment, then returned to the main control room in the third basement.
In the main control room, a few Night Owl players stood guard at the entrance, but their eyes could not help but look at the big surveillance monitors, paying attention to the battle situation in the passage of the third basement.
The three NPC researchers were still focused on operating the main control platform and analyzing various data.
Fang Heng walked to the stabilizer and looked around.
Taking advantage of the fact that no one was paying attention, Fang Heng kicked a weak part of the stabilizer.
A faint sound was heard.
The next second, an ear-piercing alarm sounded once again throughout the entire third basement.
“Alert! The stabilizer of the space tearing device has been damaged! Its operating efficiency has decreased. Please repair it in time! ”
Hearing the alarm, the players and NPCs in the main control room were shocked. They all turned their heads to look at the stabilizer and Fang Heng.
Fang Heng’s expression was calm, and his voice was loud and clear.
“Don’t panic. It’s just a small problem. Leave it to me. All of you, stick to your assigned tasks! ”
Even though Fang Heng did not have the authority to command, the few Night Owl players did not suspect Fang Heng’s answer at all. They continued to stand guard at the entrance of the main control room.
