"its attributes are insane…"
"yeah… one could gain 5,000 additional attribute points by sacrificing a legendary pet!"
"the best part is that there isn't a limitation to the number of use. that means one could sacrifice an infinite amount of pets!"
as jiang fei announced the item's attributes, the players in the group started discussing it.
"guild master, do you think i can try using it now?" anew returner was the first to ask if he could use the item. he had just acquired a legendary drake.
although the drake was quite strong, and had the merge skill, it was incomparable to 5,000 attribute points and a random ultimate skill.
the 5,000 attribute points alone would increase anew returner's health points by 200,000. that amount was even greater than what merging with the pet would give him. in fact, there was no limited duration to the increase in health points.
moreover, the 5,000 additional attribute points could also allow anew returner to become a full-fledged attacker and not be stuck as a tanker.
therefore, anew returner believed that he would gain more by sacrificing his pet.
"if that's the case, guild master, we would like to test it out too…" the other players who had obtained dragonoid pets had the same thought as anew returner.
"do you all think the same way?" jiang fei looked at the players. they were not the only ones who had the same view as anew returner. even seven stars warrior who had obtained an ancient pet was somewhat tempted.
the 500 and 5,000 additional attribute points were indeed tempting. furthermore, some could even gain an ultimate skill equivalent to a seal curse spell. it was definitely worth sacrificing a pet for.
"master…" akatziris tugged at jiang fei's shirt with a worried look. after all, many of the players seemed tempted to sacrifice their own pets. she was uncertain if jiang fei would want to do the same. therefore, akatziris appeared to be very fearful.
"don't worry. i won't sacrifice you!" jiang fei patted akatziris' hands gently to calm her down. he then turned around to face the players. "do you really think such a good deal exists?"
"what do you mean?" the other players were stunned by what jiang fei said. if they did not know jiang fei well, they might have assumed that he wanted to keep the ancient celestial artifact for himself.
"ahh! think of it this way. if i were to bring you on dungeon quests everyday, how many pet eggs would you be able to get from the light dragon nest each day?" jiang fei asked.
"the boss drops four epic eggs and three legendary eggs. we also get the dragon eggs that we steal. if we try our best, i think one hundred is an achievable amount." lady casanova provided the statistics.
"if so, how many additional attribute points would one person get if he sacrificed all of those pets?" jiang fei continued asking.
"four epic pets would each provide 500 additional attribute points, which amounts to 2,000. three legendary pets would provide 15,000 additional attribute points in total. on top of that, each of the one hundred small dragon eggs provide 50 additional attribute points. in total, that would be 22,000 additional attribute points…" seven stars warrior very quickly tabulated the numbers.
"22,000 additional attribute points in one day. what if we did it for an entire month? or a year? could this game still be playable?" jiang fei asked.
"ehh…" the other players were dumbfounded after jiang fei asked the questions.
jiang fei was right. if a player could gain 22,000 additional attribute points in a day, he would be able to acquire 660,000 additional attribute points in a month. with such attributes, the player would not even need to find the cauldrons of the ancient kingdom. he could probably kill a celestial being right away.
"why don't you think about who this ancient celestial artifact belongs to?" jiang fei laughed coldly. he then continued to speak, "this celestial artifact belongs to the ancient god of avarice. he is called the god of avarice for a reason. he won't give away something good for free. do you think he would be this nice to us?"
"that…" the other players began to feel wary after jiang fei had spoken.
"in fact, didn't you see the remark at the end of the list of attributes? after using the artifact, one would establish a connection with the god of avarice. the result of the connection is still unknown! do you know what unknown means? it could be a huge trick!" jiang fei continued speaking.
"guild master, from what you have said, could this celestial artifact resemble some kind of trap?" little rain asked.
"i reckon it must be!" jiang fei nodded. these unknown alerts were how the designers of the game tricked players. usually, they would include such messages before a player fell prey to a trap. they would lure players with huge rewards and include these kinds of bait. once a player was baited, they could do anything to the player and the player would have no choice but to accept the consequences.
"guild master, don't you think you might be over-complicating this?" some of the players disagreed with jiang fei. after all, they were tempted by the huge rewards of using the item.
"i'm just warning you. if you insist on using it, i will give it to you!" jiang fei shrugged his shoulders as he spoke.
"guild master, it's not that i don't trust you. i just want to experiment on behalf of my comrades. i'll sacrifice myself for everyone's sake!" although the player spoke as if he were very benevolent, he actually only wanted to increase his capabilities with the celestial artifact.
"alright then!" jiang fei could tell that the player was very determined. he decided to give up on convincing the player otherwise. jiang fei handed the ancient celestial artifact over to the player.
"brothers, i don't have any ulterior motive. i just want to be your lab rat!" the player laughed and said after receiving the celestial artifact.
"go ahead and use it!" jiang fei nodded.
"alright!" the player said as he summoned the epic dragonoid pet which he acquired two days ago.
"sacrifice!" as the player used the destructive shrine of the god of avarice, a grey light engulfed his pet.
the dragonoid pet cried out painfully as its body turned into a ball of light and was absorbed into the shrine. thereafter, the shrine emitted a golden light onto the player's body. as it did, the player's attributes suddenly increased drastically.
"ha! my attributes really did increase by 500!" the player shouted excitedly.
however, right then, he received a system notification.
"damn! what the hell is this? i have been forbidden from owning any pets!"
"ding! as you have killed your own pet, from now on, all pets will reject serving you!"
"oh! a player can't sacrifice an infinite number of pets after all!" seven stars warrior and the other players nodded. although one could no longer own pets after sacrificing one's pet, the 5,000 additional attribute points were still very tempting. the same could be said for the ultimate skill.
"hold on! someone appears to be speaking to me…" right then, the player had established a connection with the god of avarice.
