109 Su Wan Reminisced About the Past
Two days later, they were all back in their respective territories.
Xu Yuan slept, and the White Dragon Saint stood guard by his side.
The result for the regional championship was already out. Su Wan was supposed to represent Division 5 in the finals!
“The finals will start in three days. We don’t have much time!”
Su Wan had been desperately annihilating all kinds of enemy strongholds nearby. The Barbarian stronghold, Wild Boar Tribe, Gorilla Village, and many others had been destroyed.
Su Wan’s purpose was to accumulate as many resources as possible. At present, there were two powerful troops that Su Wan hadn’t created yet. Those were the Dragon Knights and the Dragon Blood Warriors.
The Black Gold behemoth and the Cerberus were powerful. However, everything in the world had a counter. It would be a shame if they encountered a stronger troop in the battle that could destroy them.
So, Su Wan decided to create Dragon Knights and Dragon Blood Warriors. If she only had Dark-Type creatures in her unit, it would be easy to restrain them together.
During the fights, she noticed that her troops were weak. When eliminating the various strongholds for resources, Su Wan noticed many limitations of her own troops. The Skeleton Soldiers were so weak that their attacks meant nothing to the enemy.
It took a long time for even one attack to land on the enemy. It was as though they were drunk when fighting.
Su Wan had observed the other troops. The Skeleton Knights were the same. One knight charged straight and didn’t even turn back after hitting a wall like a fool!
She had seen them fight valiantly before. She wondered if that was just the result of Xu Yuan’s buff. Without it, they were useless!
“Detestable!” Su Wan looked at the troops in anger.
Even her strongest troops were the same. The Golden Behemoth rode on the three-headed Cerberus, forming the Hell Behemoth Knight.
However, they only knocked down trees and branches instead of hitting the enemies. The Cerberus kept slipping on the ground with the Golden behemoth on its back.
Su Wan had to personally eliminate the enemies. Although her troops had fought bravely in the past, they were simply ineffective at the moment. She thought that they might still be weak from the recent fight.
Su Wan was tired. “Xu Yuan, when will you wake up?” she muttered.
Su Wan reminisced about the past when a buff from Xu Yuan strengthened the troops so much that they could eliminate the enemies without much effort.
Unfortunately, after the regional championship, Xu Yuan remained in deep sleep because he was still too weak.
Now that she didn’t have Xu Yuan to rely on, she found it difficult to lead her troops. All her troops had problems. Su Wan felt exhausted by all of it.
Just then, an urgent mission was issued in the Overlord Plane.
[An ancient ruin, the Sunken City, has spawned, and some ancient souls have awakened in it. All Lords who explore the Sunken City can obtain resources. For every ancient soul you kill, the resources you obtain will be multiplied by 100.]
Su Wan was eager. Her entire demeanor had changed.
“So, if I kill one ancient soul in the Sunken City and get ten metallic minerals, I will receive a thousand of those minerals?” Su Wan speculated. She was excited.
“The Sunken City was an ancient capital of an empire in the Overlord Plane!” said Su Wan. “It’s bound to have numerous resources! Furthermore, for every ancient soul killed, the resources will be multiplied by a hundred!”
Su Wan’s small fists clenched tightly. She shook Xu Yuan awake. “Scammer Xu, stop sleeping! We have a new mission!”
Su Wan had already shaken him up. She then stopped herself and remembered that he was still weak from the previous battle. She felt guilty.
Xu Yuan raised his claw and slapped her hands away. “What’s with the noise?”
Xu Yuan belatedly realized that he should have been pretending to be asleep instead of listening to her. He realized his mistake and stared at Su Wan. She stared at him too. For a moment, they both looked at each other.
Su Wan blinked and broke eye contact. She excitedly picked him up from the ground. “Xu Yuan, you are finally awake!” she said. “Do you know how worried I was for you these past few days?”
Su Wan blurted out her worries for him in that instant. Su Wan had experienced the most difficult phase in her journey as a Lord. Ever since Xu Yuan fell asleep, her troops had acted strangely. They pretended to obey her orders but did everything in their power to not obey her command.
If not for the rules of the Overlord Plane, Su Wan thought that her troops would have rebelled against her. She wouldn’t have to worry about a mutiny if Xu Yuan was by her side.
She told him everything and gradually calmed herself enough to regain her composure.
“The Sunken City?” Xu Yuan asked after Su Wan told him everything.
He shook his head. He wasn’t interested in resource gathering. He only wanted to kill monsters and gain experience.
Furthermore, Sunken City was a maze-like place. Even if they wandered around for the whole day, they might not encounter a monster. It was better to use the three days to kill monsters they could find easily instead.
As for Su Wan’s plan of creating Dragon Knights and Dragon Blood Warriors, Xu Yuan didn’t really care. The current number of soldiers was enough for the competition.
If that wasn’t enough, Xu Yuan thought that he would merge Black Gold Behemoth and Cerberus into something powerful and then apply the Demonic Dragon’s Blessing to make them powerful.
Su Wan and Xu Yuan’s plans were completely different. However, Xu Yuan couldn’t tell her about his plan. Su Wan’s current desire to improve and collect resources to build stronger troops was a good thing.
If she found out that she didn’t have to work hard as long as Xu Yuan was there, he wouldn’t be able to get her to kill monsters, so he could gain experience points.
