Chapter 25 The Dark Iron Dwarf
Chapter 25 The Dark Iron Dwarf
The mithril vein of Eastern Continent is located in a corner of the southwestern part of the continent map. This map is not too big, but it is definitely not too small. It’s just that there are more than fifty level monsters hovering around this map. Of players are basically discouraged from this map. Not only that, because there are smokey volcanoes everywhere on this map, the air is also very hot. If the player is not fully prepared, one of the "scorching injuries" on this map will be continuous blood loss. Fire damage.
It's easy to die here before finding a supply point.
The environment here is so harsh, and there are many high-level evil demons wandering, which is enough to dispel the Yaxing of many players who come here to visit here.Ye Ci sat for a while, but still couldn't find a way to open this vein. Finally, I could only go back to the nearby supply point to see. A map like this in a remote area of a city is basically a map with a supply point. And the design of the replenishment point is not necessarily in the middle of the map. Its location may appear on any location on this map, depending on your luck when running the map. If you are lucky, you will be able to find a supply point soon. If you are unlucky, you may have to open the entire map before you can find the supply point.
As a person after rebirth, Ye Ci naturally did not have the hardships of other players running the map. Since entering this map called the Habitat of Bad Demons, she went straight to the supply point, opened the teleportation point, and then went to the mithril mine. Dangling around.
It's a pity that Ye Ci, who has been swaying for several days, really didn't find any effective way to discover or unearth the mithril vein. In desperation, she had to give up speculation and go back to the supply point to see if she could find anything from the NPC there clue.Going back to the supply point, Ye Ci first met all the NPCs, but when the make people were disappointed, no NPC mentioned that there is a mithril vein in this place, but Quest picked up a lot of them. Although she was anxious, Ye Ci thought, Shengshi Guild’s ability to find the mithril vein definitely didn’t fall from the sky. There must be some way, but she doesn’t know this way. She needs to go again now, as long as she doesn’t miss it. I believe she can find any clue.
Since I can't stop thinking about finding the mithril vein, Ye Ci doesn't care how many Quests he has now. Her current level has reached the sixtieth level, and she is a set of top-level sets. It is not difficult to make the fifty-fifth level Quest here. Even the difficult Quest of a three-person team seems to be indifferent to Ye Ci. under.
High-level Quests are generally quick to brush low-level Quests and can be solved in a short time. This kind of convention has the most extreme saturation in Ye Ci. So, if dozens of Quest are made by players of level 55 or so, it will take about one or two days, but Ye Ci only took 3 hours to complete them.Connect to Quest, do Quest, then hand in Quest, and then connect to Quest. This is the most common occurrence leveling method in the game. Although Ye Ci is now at full level, he can't get any experience by doing Quest, but he has gained a lot of money, reputation and various Quest Reward. Even if you get nothing from these NPCs, selling all the Quest Reward equipment on Ye Ci can still reap a considerable income.
"Oh, elves, my friend, I am grateful that you have done everything for me. My legs feel better because of the herbs you picked." The Quest that the NPC in this hidden camp can deliver is basically Ye Ci. It's done, only there is a Quest of a female dwarf named Jasmine that hasn't been done yet.
Speaking of it, the Quest that Jasmine gave to Ye Ci from the beginning was very simple, either picking up some stones, or digging up some herbs, or killing a few bad demons. But her reward is much richer than other NPCs. This situation did not attract Ye Ci's attention at first, but after a few rounds of Quest were delivered, Ye Ci discovered the unique existence of this NPC.Quest is so simple, but the rewards are so rich. This is definitely not a bug that was ignored by the planning. There must be something important behind this. This keen sense of touch may not be the first to come into contact with the game player, but for Ye Ci who has been reborn for the first time, if it is not there, then she would be a waste of the loophole of rebirth.
Given that Fate has a very large Hidden Quest system, Ye Ci was very careful when working on Jasmine’s Quest. She never chose to skip the conversation with her. Instead, she had to carefully study word by word before carefully making choices and answers. She absolutely I can't let a Hidden Quest just pass my own eyes.
"Really? It's my greatest honor to be able to help you." Ye Ci's face was full of smiles, her tone of voice was very gentle and modest, and she even bowed slightly to Jasmine.Jasmine's race is a dwarf, but it is not a dwarf in the general sense. Unlike the player's race of dwarves, they belong to another race of dwarves-dark iron dwarves. It has been recorded in mainland history books that the races of dwarves are divided into three types according to their skin color. One is the white dwarf, which is the dwarf in the general sense, the race of the player. The other is the Dark Iron Dwarf, their skin is dark, and there is another kind of Dwarf called the Red Fire Dwarf, whose complexion is red, like a burning fire.
These three savages were originally led by the dwarf king Mokkmodo. However, after the death of Mokkmodo, all three races wanted to recommend their own warriors to succeed the dwarf king, and a large-scale fighting took place. Finally, as The dwarves, the most powerful race second only to humans, are divided into three.Because the white dwarves have the best relationship with humans, they have received the greatest help from humans in this melee, so they are divided into the best place in the dwarf race, and they have established a long and close comrade-in-arms relationship with humans. All continents have begun to thrive. The black iron dwarves were the first to lose in the war because of their solitary nature and the smallest number of races. Their patriarchs were far-sighted. After signing the armistice agreement with the white dwarves, they left the white dwarves far away. The land of the dwarves went to explore more far-reaching places on all continents. The red fire dwarves, who were the last to lose, were not as lucky as the black iron dwarves. All their territories were occupied by the white dwarves, and they were driven out of the four continents by the white dwarves.
This is also the main reason why players have not met the Red Fire Dwarf on their own continent so far. However, with the opening of the expansion, the Red Fire Dwarf will soon break into everyone’s sight and set off again for the player’s adventure career. An affair, of course, that is in the future, the important thing now is how Ye Ci finds the mithril vein.The nature of dwarves is not actually fighting, although they never fear fighting, it can be said that everyone be brave and good at fighting, but their interest has never been here. The interest of dwarves is similar to dragons. They all like shiny things, such as gems and precious minerals. Therefore, every dwarf, whether male or female, is very strong and strong, because every dwarf is a born miner. In the days when they are not fighting, the dwarves live underground, where they dig all kinds of ores and gems they like. This habit is something that dwarves grow in their bones, and it doesn’t change depending on the race of the dwarves.
Therefore, on the mainland, no matter which mine is in the pit, if there is a distribution of NPCs, if you observe carefully, there will definitely be dwarves.
Probably for this reason, elves who have always loved nature are the most disdainful of dwarves. They think that dwarves are covered with a copper odor that makes elves nauseous. Similarly, dwarves don’t like the pride of elves. And a race that only sings and dances, but these two races are close comrades in arms with humans, so in this relationship, they are more patient with each other.It is for this reason that Ye Ci is very careful when facing Jasmine, speaking neither servile nor overbearing, trying not to touch the contradiction between the two races, so that he can get the best of this female black iron dwarf. trust.
"Oh, you are the kindest elf I have ever seen." Jasmine looked at Ye Ci and nodded with satisfaction, then curled her lips and looked at the sleeping elf NPC not far from the camp and said disdainfully: "And Other elves are so annoying. It seems that there are good people among elves."
Regarding this kind of battle between NPCs, Ye Ci certainly wouldn't do more than is required to join in. If she had to join in such a thing, she would not know how to die soon. So she just stood on the side, smiling gently, listening to Jasmine's words and speaking, without expressing any opinions.
Jasmine talked to herself for a long time, and suddenly there was a gurgling noise in her stomach, and she also showed a rare embarrassment expression.
"If you are injured, you really need to eat something delicious, so that your wound can heal quickly." Ye Ci did not laugh at Jasmine for this, but also offered her very kind and considerate suggestions."Oh, what a good elf said right." Jasmine smiled shyly after hearing Ye Ci's words, "I am really hungry, but I really don't want to eat dwarf bread, oh my goodness, you I don’t know how disgusting it is to eat that dwarf bread every day. I heard that the food made by the elves is delicious, and I have always wanted to try it, but I have never had this opportunity. I don’t know if you can satisfy me. This wish?"
"Of course, I am willing to serve you."
This is an open Quest. Because the NPC did not name what food to eat, but only generally said that the food should be made by the spirit, which is too wide. You know, in Fate this game, like the formula of life skills, each race will have its own unique formula, which is outside the general formula. There are many players who are not able to learn the recipes of other races because they have insufficient reputation in other races, so they only learn the popular recipes, and Ye Ci is no exception. Although she is a reborn player, although she also knows how important it is to gain high prestige among various races, but in the end is to be up to one's ears in work, her time is now tightly arranged, and there is no excess at all. Time and experience to enhance the prestige of other races.
It seems that the matter of improving the prestige of other races can only be done slowly in the future.Fortunately, the dishes that Jasmine ordered are the dishes of the elves. As a hunter, as an elven hunter, cooking is a necessary life skill, and naturally all the dishes of her own race have been studied. Now that the most fundamental conditions have been met, the rest is a matter of choice.
I don’t know who ever said such a sentence, life is to bear the result of your choice among different choices.
One of the problems Ye Ci faces now is choice. Players who are first exposed to an open Quest may not understand that such a Quest is actually the most difficult, because there is only one opportunity to choose, and this opportunity will definitely follow what the Quest will be like. The wrong choice may be the end of Quest, and the right choice may be able to open a huge Hidden Quest. After being reborn, how could Ye Ci not know the importance of such an open Quest.
After ten years of training in the last life, she has experienced tens of thousands of open Quests, and the choices she made are basically the correct ones. Therefore, she is also very confident in her choice this time.Regarding how the open choice Quest can be completed with a higher probability, this issue has also been discussed on the forums of the previous life. Of course, most of us are lucky, but some textual players have put forward a point of view. It is possible to efficiently complete the open choice Quest, then there is only one way, and that is to read more books at the National Library of the Mainland. Of course, when this point of view was put forward, it was ridiculed by all players.
You must know that the books in the National Library are not just a few books, but by the thousands and tens of thousands, their number cannot be counted. If you want to read them all, there is no one or two years. possible.
At the beginning, Ye Ci thought so too. At that time, she was totally lucky with the open choice of Quest. Anyway, her hit rate was so-so, until she was hunted down... In desperation, she hid in the National Library of the Absolutely Safe Zone. Ye Ci was a day drags past like a year in the first one or two days there. When I wanted to go out, the enemy outside was waiting to kill her, instead of going out, there was nothing but books in the National Library. After suffering like this for a day or two, she saw that she couldn't get out, so she simply settled down to read the book. This reading was actually read in. She was soaked in it for a few months, so that she could not get out. The enemies who blocked her simply gave up, and she is still obsessed with those books.Although Ye Ci came out of the National Library later, he still goes to the National Library to sit after playing games. After all, reading is a very happy thing. In the beginning, Ye Ci, who only regarded reading as an interest, regarded reading as a BUG. The time to face it was actually an open choice Quest. Or it should be said that it is a series of open choices Quest.
That is a classic Quest after the fourth expansion roll out after the game has been in operation for four years. This Quest has a total of sixty rings from the first ring to the last ring, and each ring is an open choice Quest. If you choose the wrong link in the middle, you will be forced to restart. If you are forced to restart more than ten times, then the player will have no chance with this Quest. However, there will be a very special reward after the final link of this Quest is completed. It is for that reward. Billions of players in the entire game try to make this Quest, but no more than 100 players complete this Quest. A.
And Ye Ci is one of the hundred players completed. Not only that, she was the only player who did not choose any of the wrong links. The rewards are naturally very rich, but it is not luck that Ye Ci can do this, but the books that have been read in the National Library for a long time.In this Quest, Ye Ci discovered the power of the books of the National Library, so powerful that it can be called the BUG of the entire game. It records all the problems of the entire continent, from astronomy and geography to human history, and even the genealogy of each race, how various skills were developed, how they were finalized, and so on. In short, as long as it is all the problems that players can encounter, they can all be read in the National Library. It's a pity that no player has ever discovered such a huge BUG.
I don’t know if the players pay too much attention to playing games and lack the love for books? Faced with such a huge sea of books, few people can stick to it. In short, in the subsequent games, Ye Ci will soak in the National Library as long as he has time and read continuously.
Probably because of this reason, she has become a rare know-how on the entire continent.
It's a shame to say that Ye Ci, who was so keen on reading in the previous life, has not even stepped through the gate of the National Library after he was reborn. Now all the knowledge she knows is completely eating her money, so Ye Ci secretly made up her mind and waited until everything came to the end of a phase. After she was free, she must visit the National Library frequently.Faced with this choice now, Ye Ci is not at all flustered. After knowing that it was Jasmine's request that she wanted to get the spirit cuisine, she was already ready. Of course, it is naturally impossible for the National Library to tell the player the correct answer to the open choice, but the player can reason based on some details recorded in the National Library.
For example, dwarves are a race that likes food and wine very much. For another example, dwarves are not good at hunting by nature, but they like to eat meat very much. The rarer the meat, the more it makes them feel happy. For example, the food that dwarves hate the most is dwarf bread, because the only food that dwarves are good at, they have eaten for hundreds of thousands of years, and they have long hated it. For example, on the four continents, the dwarves actually like the town of Bran in the southern continent the most, not because of the beautiful scenery and simple folk customs, but because the rich Bran wheat can brew the most delicious Bran stout...
Putting these detailed descriptions of each race together, the player can easily infer the most appropriate and correct answer for the open choice.
According to Ye Ci's memory of all the habits of the dwarves, coupled with Jasmine's requirements, Ye Ci soon found the most suitable dish in the elf recipe-the western wine braised dragon meat.Of course, the dragon meat here refers to the more precious dinosaur meat, not the kind of dragon flying in the sky=. =
The ingredients for this dish are very rich, what are the 50-year-old western Irish wine, what quality is higher than 40 horned dragon thigh meat, what is the characteristic cumin of Champion City, what is the secret spice of the elves...... things like this , Anyway, it’s not something easy to prepare.
In order to prepare this dish, Ye Ci had to fly back to Champion City and rush to various maps. She even contacted Fluttering Red Feather, who is pushing Dungeon in the southern continent, and asked him to quickly get himself a few bottles of good Blanche...
In short, after spending a full three hours, Ye Ci finally delivered this perfect quality western wine braised dragon meat, plus five bottles of Bran stout beer to Jasmine's eyes.
Although separated by the lid, Jasmine has already started to smell, "Too fragrant, too fragrant""Hurry up, this is a special dish of our elves." Ye Ci placed the plate in front of Jasmine, then lifted the lid, and the strong fragrance immediately filled the air. Jasmine closed her eyes and sniffed vigorously. She didn't want to let go of even a little bit of fragrance. From the blush and intoxication that emerged from her face, Ye Ci thought, she was basically 50% right in this choice Yes, the remaining 50% depends on Jasmine's performance after eating this dish.
Dwarves are really a very fast race. Even if the delicacies of the world are placed in front of them, they will never taste them like humans or undead or elves. They will only squeeze them into their stomachs with speed. Because for the dwarves, savoring food or wine is a pure waste of time, and wasting time is tantamount to wasting their chance to earn gems. They will never do this. So, soon, Jasmine solved the large plate of dragon meat stewed with western wine and poured five bottles of Bran beer into her belly by the way.
It was as fast as a windstorm.
This speed made Ye Ci a little moved. You know, it took her three hours to do it. This NPC actually took less than five minutes to solve it all. In contrast, Ye Ci feels that the food she worked so hard has been ruined."It's great, great, simply great." Although Jasmine couldn't stand up because of her leg injury, she still waved her hands happily, and she could see that she was really excited. Then, the follow-up that Ye Ci was waiting for finally arrived: "How can I enjoy such delicious food by myself? I have a good friend named Dudu. He is now exploring the mine to the west. Can you bring a copy of this dish for me? He has a taste?"
"Of course there is no problem." Ye Ci stood up immediately and accepted Quest. Fortunately, she likes to have leeway in her work. Just now she made five of them when she was making the western wine stewed dragon meat. Wouldn't she be wasting three more hours now?
Ye Ci was very excited. Judging from Jasmine's satisfied expression, her choice this time was the best quality answer. Although, no matter what kind of fairy recipe Ye Ci makes for Jasmine, Jasmine will give rewards, but if you choose the best answer, you will get the biggest reward. This is also the charm of open choice Quest.After this choice, Jasmine did not give Ye Ci any reward, but directly asked her to find another NPC. This is very abnormal for an NPC that has always given players rich rewards. This abnormality illustrates a problem. , That is, the player has found the most critical point to continue the next round of this Quest. If the player does not find this key point, I am afraid they will only get a pile of money or better Quest equipment.
Compared with those things, Ye Ci is naturally more interested in the successor Quest. She bid farewell to Jasmine and ran towards the west mine. There are several different mines, large and small, on the map of the Habitat of Bad Demon. For Ye Ci, she has been running around here in the past few days, but she has a clear understanding of every piece of land here. She clearly remembered that there was no NPC in the western mine.
But now Jasmine asked herself to find Dudu there, indicating that an NPC was spawned there after she made the corresponding choice.
Soon, Ye Ci arrived at the western mine pit, and she saw a dark-skinned black iron dwarf sweating on some ore in the abandoned huge mine. Ye Ci walked into him and greeted him kindly, "Hello, dear dwarf."This black iron dwarf named Dudu looked back, and saw tall elves standing next to him. An expression of disgust suddenly appeared on his face: "Go away from the nasty elves, I am not hypocritical. The white dwarves won’t treat you nicely. Get out of me quickly, otherwise don’t rude the hoe in my hand.”
It seems that although Ye Ci got Jasmine's favor, it does not mean that Dudu also has goodwill towards her. So Ye Ci had to take out the dragon meat stewed with western red wine from his pocket, "My friend, don't be angry, I am Jasmine's friend, and I was commissioned by her to bring you today's lunch."
"What? You are Jasmine's friend? How could Jasmine make an elf friend? It's weird." Although Dudu's mouth was hard, he was no longer so angry and stubborn when he smelled the scent of dragon meat stewed in western red wine. He began to sit down while tasting food and drinking wine.
Alcohol quickly numbed Dudu's nerves. After Dudu finished the meal, his attitude towards Ye Ci had completely changed. Not only did he call Ye Ci brothers and sisters, but he also opened up the drunken chatterbox: " I can tell you, elves, I actually don’t want to explore this ghost place at all. Look, I’ve walked through such a mine, where is there any baby?"
"baby?""Stupefied Jasmine didn't tell you? We ran away from our race to this place where the birds don’t shit and explored completely because of the precious ore. The guy at Jasmine didn’t know what false news he got from the patriarch, no To say that there is a precious ore here, just drag me here, but we have been here for a month, what precious ore, I rarely even see the ore. Tell me, am I being deceived? Is it?" Dudu complained through the alcohol.
Ye Ci was silent. The black iron dwarves are the favorite of the three types of dwarves to mine. They are not as fond of dealing with humans as white dwarves, nor are they as aggressive as the red fire dwarves. They put more experience on the ore. Therefore, they are mining on all continents. Now Dudu says that Jasmine and him are here to find the precious ore, Ye Ci can confirm that they are looking for mithril
In other words, the toot in front of her is probably the key NPC for her to open the mithril vein.
At the thought of this, Ye Ci started to feel his excitement. She took two deep breaths to stabilize her emotions, and then she said not a word or movement: "Maybe this legend is true.""Shit" Toot finally exploded in foul language, which makes Ye Ci a little surprised. You must know that in the game, the player's swearing will be blocked by the system, but she has never heard of NPC swearing. This toot can be used. It's so special. "Do you think we are the first people to come here to look for the precious ore? No, many people have come here to look for it before us, but in the end they didn't return to the group. Here It’s so dangerous, there are evil demons everywhere, I really can’t stay for a day.”
"Then what can I do for you?" Now this NPC named Dudu is full of resistance to the search for the mithril mine. Although Ye Ci is a little anxious, he dare not persuade casually, so he can only follow along. He said what he meant, and then found a way in Manman.
"Oh, good elf, my good elf, you are the best elf I have ever seen. Since you are good friends with Jasmine, can you help me go back and talk to Jasmine, don’t embarrass me, I I don't want to send my life to this place where the birds don't shit." Dudu looked pitiful.
This is an errand Quest. Although it is an errand Quest, it is indeed the only way for Quest to continue. Ye Ci began to walk between the two NPCs to pass on a message to them.Not knowing how many times she ran, Jasmine finally sighed, "My friend, it seems that Dudu really doesn't want to find that baby. I wonder if you can help me find some clues to tell Fadudu? You have to know, the patriarch is my grandfather. He will never deceive me. I believe that there must be a treasure hidden here."
"No problem, please leave it to me" Ye Ci almost screamed. Although she had wasted more than eight hours on these two dark iron dwarves, did she finally see the light to find the clues to the mithril mine? This is equivalent to telling Ye Ci directly, as long as you find a clue, you open the mysterious mithril mine.
Riding Ol’ Four, Ye Ci's dark figure is like a ghost running on the habitat of evil spirits. The habitat of evil demons, as the name suggests, the most monsters here are evil demons.
Bad monsters are the lowest level monsters, but don't look down on them just because they are the lowest level monsters. Although they don't have much blood, they are all long-range attacks. They are good at using magic flames and magic bursts. Together, two bad demons can easily solve a 55th-level high-blood Warrior or knight. watch for.Although Ye Ci has reached level sixty, they are expected to be extra careful. However, both parties are long-range attacks. As long as they don't encounter siege, chase and interception, Ye Ci can still easily solve these little evil spirits. Ye Ci wandered near the mine vein of mithril, hoping to find any clues, but it was a pity that the silent black rock was waiting for her, and there was nothing else.
It seems that I am thinking wrong?
Since you can't find any clues near the mithril vein, let's go a little further and take a look. Ye Ci opened the distance and began to search further away from the mithril vein. It didn't take long for her to find a very important clue.
She actually saw a dying black iron dwarf in the cracks between a few rocks. His face was all around, and his beard had turned white. It could be seen that the black iron dwarf was very old. He lay there, muttering: "So thirsty, so thirsty..."
Ye Ci immediately took out the cool spring water from his package and reached the lips of the black iron dwarf. He seemed to feel the damp breath, and immediately held the kettle, and began to gulp up the water. Not long after, such a large kettle of spring water was all drunk by the black iron dwarf."Are you better?" Ye Ci looked at him and asked eagerly. You know, this guy hadn't noticed it when he was patrolling this map. It can be seen that he was also refreshed with this Quest. But looking at his current state is really bad, Ye Ci feels like he will soon be home and return home.
"Oh, it was an elf that saved me. This is really a ridiculous ending." The Dark Iron dwarf blinked, his voice full of exhaustion.
"I am a friend of the black iron dwarf Jasmine. They came here to look for a precious ore, but they had no direction. I was commissioned by her to look for clues. You can trust me."
"Jasmine? Is that the little granddaughter of the patriarch?"
Ye Ci thought for a while. At that time, Jasmine had indeed said that she was the granddaughter of the Black Iron Dwarf Patriarch, so she nodded, "It's her."
"How long have I been away? Actually Jasmine has grown up, and Jasmine can already find the treasure." The black iron dwarf exhaled a long breath: "You can get Jasmine's trust. It shows that you are a good elf, elf, I do know the clues to the ore, I even have drawn a map, but..."
