Chapter 567 - Give or Take




As soon as Anna heard these words, she left the President’s Office to invite President Henry over .


After watching Anna leave, Shi Feng examined the documents on the table .


These documents were the business listings of the Starstreak Trading Firm’s purchases, shipments, and other such dealings . However, all of these dealings had been organized by Anna herself .


Anna was an NPC who possessed 91 Intelligence . Such NPCs were extremely rare in God’s Domain . If she became a guard, her potential would be nearly limitless .


Hence, Shi Feng wished to negotiate with Henry .

The quests that NPCs commissioned were not without room for change . It only depended on whether or not the player involved possessed the strength to make such changes .

Previously, the reward they had agreed upon was a Tier 4 magic scroll that would allow him to reach the Dark Den easily and obtain the Bible of Darkness .

However, Shi Feng felt that something was amiss .

No matter how one looked at it, the task of managing the Starstreak Trading Firm was one part of an Epic Quest . The reward for completing it should not be limited to just the tool required to proceed to the next phase . If it were so, what’s the difference between obtaining a reward and not obtaining one?


Thus, Shi Feng felt that he could fight for more as there might be some mysteries hidden within .

It was especially true for the assistant, Anna .


After the battle with the Dragon-Phoenix Pavilion, the various large Guilds in God’s Domain had begun thinking of ways to obtain powerful NPC guards .

However, how could powerful guards possibly be that easy to find?

Take Anna for example . She was an extremely powerful guard . However, who would possibly believe that a weak and delicate young lady like her could become a guard with vast potential?

If Shi Feng had not accidentally looked at Anna’s Attributes, he, too, would not have realized that she was so capable .


If he allowed Anna to become an Adventurer, with her Intelligence, she could reach astonishing heights . Although she would not be as powerful as Kite, she might still become a Fine-Gold ranked guard .


Dark-Gold ranked guards were legends in God’s Domain . Based on Shi Feng’s understanding, only a few people had managed to recruit Dark-Gold ranked guards in the past . The guards owned by the majority of the players in the game were Bronze or Mysterious-Iron rank . Even finding a Secret-Silver ranked guard was considered lucky, not to mention Fine-Gold rank .


Although a Fine-Gold ranked guard was not invincible against enemies of the same Tier and Level, it was still significantly stronger than monsters of the same Tier . Fighting players of the same Tier and Level would be even easier . Furthermore, Anna was a magical class .


The majority of the NPCs in God’s Domain were physical classes; magical classes were very rare .


Magical classes were different from physical classes . They could not be used against Bosses and could only attack from the rear line .


To a Guild, however, a magical class’s value far surpassed a physical class .

Magical class NPCs knew plenty of AOE spells and possessed strategic-level large-scale destruction spells . In a Guild War or against Field Bosses, these NPCs were frightening existences . Hence, the various large Guilds would usually prioritize magical class NPCs as their Personal Guards .




Because of this, on the market, the value of a Bronze ranked magical guard could rival even that of a Mysterious-Iron ranked physical guard .


If Anna were a Fine-Gold ranked magical guard, she would be no less valuable than Kite .


“No matter what, I must obtain Anna . ” Shi Feng grew excited just thinking about it .


As a Viscount, he only had two slots for Personal Guards . If he could fill those slots with a Dark-Gold ranked physical guard and a Fine-Gold ranked magical guard… A combination like that would have scared people to death in his past life .


With the presence of these two Personal Guards, defeating a Field Boss of the same Tier would be an effortless task .


After Shi Feng had waited in the magnificent and grand President’s Office for some time, the dignified and elegant President Henry entered the room .


However, behind President Henry was a Level 180 Tier 3 Berserker .


Shi Feng could not help but frown slightly .


Whether it was among players or NPCs, a Tier 3 class was considered a big shot . In White River City, such an NPC would be at the same level as an overlord .


Although the Starstreak Trading Firm was one of White River City’s top trading firms, it definitely could not afford to hire a Level 180 Berserker King as a guard .

“Your Excellency Ye Feng, you have truly surprised me . I did not expect that you would actually complete this quest so quickly!” Henry chuckled . “Here, allow me to introduce you . This man beside me is the Berserker King Schneider . He is an expert our trading firm has invited from Star-Moon City to annihilate the Black Scorpion Corps . ”



“Greetings, Your Majesty Schneider, I am Ye Feng, an Adventurer,” Shi Feng introduced himself .


In response, however, Schneider only glanced at Shi Feng without saying a word . He showed no signs of being interested in Shi Feng’s acquaintance .


However, Shi Feng was not bothered by Schneider’s reaction . In truth, NPCs in God’s Domain were largely similar to real humans . A Tier 3 Berserker King NPC like Schneider was considered a powerful force in a city like White River City . On the other hand, Shi Feng was only a Tier 1 player . In Schneider’s eyes, he was no different than an ant .


Humans would not speak to ants . Schneider’s attitude towards Shi Feng was normal .


In the past, while Shi Feng had been working on a quest, even though he was a Tier 3 Sword King, a Tier 4 NPC had robbed him . One could say that Shi Feng had long since grown accustomed to such behavior .


Of course, if Shi Feng were currently a Tier 3 player, Schneider would not be treating him so coldly .

In the past virtual reality games, NPCs had always felt distant, detached . It felt as if NPCs and players lived in two different worlds . However, the NPCs of God’s Domain were different; they were extremely lifelike . If a player treated these NPCs as stupid and useless objects, then these NPCs would grant said player the full experience of passing through hell .


“May I know what Your Excellency wishes to discuss with me?” Henry asked, not paying any heed to Shi Feng and Schneider’s exchange .

“I want to make a deal with you,” Shi Feng stated . Laughing, he continued, “While I have been responsible for managing the Starstreak Trading Firm, Anna has helped me significantly . It was only because of her that I have lived up to your expectations and reached the goal of earning 30,000 Gold . Hence, I now wish to recruit Miss Anna as my personal assistant . Naturally, I am willing to pay the appropriate price .


“Aside from the 30,000 Gold you have requested, I am willing to offer an additional 3,000 Gold . May I know what you think of this offer?”


Anna, who stood beside Shi Feng, was stunned, her delicate mouth parting as she stared at Shi Feng in disbelief . The advanced NPCs working at the trading firm only made a monthly salary of several Gold . Yet, Shi Feng had offered 3,000 Gold to poach her .

Anna wasn’t the only person who was shocked . Even Schneider, who had paid Shi Feng no mind, was awestruck .


As a Tier 3 Berserker King, he had only been offered 1,000 Gold to deal with the Black Scorpion Corps . That was enough to allow him to purchase an Epic item to increase his strength . Naturally, if he could recover the Starstreak Trading Firm’s stolen merchandise, he could earn a bonus . Even then, however, he would not earn as much as 3,000 Gold .


At this moment, Schneider no longer looked at Shi Feng as if he were an ant; his gaze towards the layer had softened .


Henry squinted his eyes as he evaluated Shi Feng carefully .

After a short moment, he sighed, smiling as he said, “Your Excellency Ye Feng, it is not that I do not wish to let Anna go, but our Starstreak Trading Firm simply cannot do without Anna . Just like how Your Excellency has taken a liking to Anna’s talent, it is only because of her that the Starstreak Trading Firm has its position today . Please forgive me for refusing your offer . ”


“Five thousand Gold!” Shi Feng made a new offer without hesitation .


To NPCs, this was an astronomical price .


Such an amount of money was sufficient for the Starstreak Trading Firm to hire several hundred advanced NPCs .


“This… won’t do . As you can see, Anna is responsible for so much daily profit . For the sake of the trading firm, I am afraid I cannot accept your offer,” Henry said, his expression revealing his struggle .


Merchants were all about profits!


This held true in both the real world and the virtual world .


“Six thousand Gold . I won’t go any higher . If you still refuse my offer, I can only choose to hire Mister Schneider beside you and have him take Anna’s contract for me by force,” Shi Feng said as he looked at Schneider, grinning .
