The Faux Saint army was something even ordinary NPC cities were incapable of stopping, let alone Guild Towns and Cities. Just the fact that Silverwing Town was able to defeat the Faux Saint army was already an incredible feat. After all, not every Guild Town possessed the Frozen World’s special methods.

“While these Personal Guards are indeed strong, those Faux Saint monsters are no pushovers, either. Those monsters have already spread out to over a dozen kingdoms and the Black Dragon Empire. With their growth rate, I’m afraid a large group of Tier 4 Faux Saint Devourers will appear in a few days. At that time, these Personal Guards will most likely have trouble fending off the Faux Saint monsters, much less taking the initiative to hunt down those monsters,” the black-clad Summoner said as she shook her head. “Moreover, our purpose in coming here is to observe whether Zero Wing is truly qualified to join us in dealing with the Faux Saint monsters or not. We’re not necessarily here to recruit it.”

After all was said and done, Personal Guards could only be considered an external tool. The first reason for this was the incredible rarity of powerful Personal Guards. The second reason was the difficulty of resurrecting fallen NPCs.

Currently, Silverwing Town might have a lot of players, but the town’s Tier 3 player population was pitifully low.

“I guess you’re right. Zero Wing might seem to be flourishing right now, but it is actually in a very precarious situation. The Guild simply doesn’t know that Saint’s Hand has already partnered with many superpowers. Even if the Faux Saint monsters don’t take action against Zero Wing, Saint’s Hand can simply supply the various superpowers with the necessary support tools to thrive in the Faux Saint monsters’ territory, and in return, the various superpowers will do their best to suppress Zero Wing’s members. If Zero Wing does not possess enough players to fight for it, it can only hole up in its Guild Town and rely on the protection of its Personal Guards, unable to do anything more,” the black-clad Cursemancer said, nodding in agreement after giving the matter some thought. Just like the Summoner had said, a Guild that could only defend and not retaliate did indeed lack the qualifications to join their alliance and become their partner.

Meanwhile, as the Level 116 Summoner and Level 116 Cursemancer from Frost Heaven were conversing, a system notification suddenly entered their ears.

System: Silverwing Town has been promoted to Basic City. You will be teleported out of Silverwing Town in 30 seconds.

“What’s going on?”

“The town got promoted?”

The system notification stunned the players in Silverwing Town, their minds falling into a daze for quite some time as they stared at their notification windows. As for Zero Wing’s members, they revealed ecstatic expressions on their faces.

As an Advanced Town, Silverwing Town had already been able to repel the Faux Saint army’s attack effortlessly. Now that Silverwing Town was getting promoted to Basic City, it would pose a much more difficult challenge for the Faux Saint army.

Before anyone could properly react to the situation, every player inside Silverwing Town was teleported out of it. At the same time, a magic array enveloped the town.

“How is this possible?!” the black-clad, female Summoner from Frost Heaven exclaimed as she gazed at the magic array veiling Silverwing Town in astonishment. “Setting aside Silverwing Town’s prosperity, its player population alone is still far short of the requirements of promotion! It should’ve taken the town at least another month to get promoted to Basic City! How could it get promoted so quickly?”

Frost Heaven had ample experience in promoting Guild Towns and Cities. Hence, the team could tell that Silverwing Town’s defenses already met the required standard for promotion, but its player population was still insufficient. This was a condition that could be fulfilled only by gradually accruing popularity among players.

Yet, now, Silverwing Town had actually gotten promoted.

At this moment, aside from Frost Heaven’s members, even the other superpowers’ members secretly operating within Silverwing Town were stupefied by this situation.

A third Guild City!

Some superpowers didn’t even have three Guild Cities, yet not only did Zero Wing possess three Guild Cities now, but all three Guild Cities were actually established in strategic locations. This was especially true for Silverwing Town.

After all, the Faux Saint monsters had already extended their sphere of activity to the dozen or so neighboring kingdoms, as well as the Black Dragon Empire. Due to the arrival of these Faux Saint monsters, many of the local maps had been transformed into high-level maps, with some even becoming Level 120 maps. In addition, since these kingdoms and empires would have to deal with these Faux Saint monsters, plenty of kingdom and empire quests would definitely be issued in the future.

Through these points, one could easily predict that the players of the affected kingdoms and the Black Dragon Empire would be operating in the Faux Saint monsters’ territory in the future.

However, as these maps were originally at the borders of the various countries, there were hardly enough shelters or strongholds for players to rest in nearby.

Since the Orc Empire served as a hub connecting the various countries, the future development of any Guild City there would be terrific.

Meanwhile, shortly after Silverwing Town’s players were teleported out of the town, news of the town’s promotion spread like wildfire, quickly reaching the ears of the various powers and causing a frenzy. Chapter 2680 – Silverwing City

Fire Dragon Empire, Flame Dragon City, Scorching Flame Restaurant:

As soon as Cold Shadow logged back into the game, she was greeted by the sight of a tall and beautiful woman standing before her. This woman was none other than White Feather, who had similarly logged back into the game not long ago.

However, White Feather wore an indescribably gloomy expression on her face.

“Did something happen?” Cold Shadow asked, a hint of confusion appearing in her silver eyes.

“We just received news that Zero Wing’s Silverwing Town has been promoted to Basic City. Many of the powers operating around the Orc Empire are now heading toward Silverwing Town. They all plan to establish a long-term partnership with Zero Wing. Some superpowers are also considering doing the same,” White Feather reported in a quiet tone.

“Silverwing Town got promoted into a city?” Cold Shadow was a little surprised when she heard White Feather’s words. Realization then struck her. She smiled and said, “No wonder he rejected my offer without hesitation. It seems this was why he had the confidence to do so.”

“Vice Guild Leader, if Zero Wing really gains the protection of several more superpowers, we will have a much more difficult time obtaining the method to grasp the Spiritualization Realm. Why don’t we contact Saint’s Hand and have it warn off those superpowers?” White Feather suggested worriedly.

Their superiors had given them only one task: to obtain the method to grasp the Spiritualization Realm. Everything else was secondary. If Zero Wing gained the protection of several superpowers in the real world, any superpower that wished to target Zero Wing in secret would have a difficult time doing so.

“That won’t be necessary. So what if those superpowers band together to protect Zero Wing?” Cold Shadow said, smiling as she read the report White Feather forwarded to her. “Now that Black Flame’s identity has been exposed, Starlink won’t let this opportunity get away. Before I logged back into God’s Domain, I received news that the old fellow behind Lu Xingluo has finally lost his patience and is planning to remove all of Zero Wing’s roots in Fenglin City. With Zero Wing’s current manpower, it won’t be able to hold out for long. All we need to do is wait.”

Lu Xingluo himself did not possess any noteworthy skill sets. In fact, a large part of the reason why the Starlink Guild was able to develop to such an extent was the old fellow supporting Lu Xingluo.

Even several superpowers working together wouldn’t be enough to stop that old fellow. Even in Mythology, only a handful of people could go up against him.

“I understand. I’ll have someone keep a close eye on Zero Wing during this period,” White Feather said, nodding.

During the time Cold Shadow and White Feather were conversing, Silverwing Town’s promotion had finally completed. When the magic array disappeared, the town that previously sat atop a sand dune was no more. In its place was a magnificent city. Whether in terms of size or defensive standards, the new Silverwing City far surpassed the old Silverwing Town. In fact, even while standing outside the city, one could distinctly feel a dense stream of Mana flowing into the city from the surroundings.

What astonishing Mana! Shi Feng was surprised when he sensed the influx of Mana into the city.

Upon Silverwing Town’s promotion to Silverwing City, its core magic array had received a significant improvement. Due to that, as well as the city’s five Magic Towers, Silverwing City could practically rival Stone Forest City in Mana density.

If players were to rest in Silverwing City, the effects they gained might not be as excellent as what they would enjoy when resting in Stone Forest City’s Freedom Hotel, but the result would still be quite excellent. It definitely wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call Silverwing City a sacred land for players to rest in.

Due to the incursion of the Faux Saint monsters, many maps in the Orc Empire had transformed into Level 100-plus neutral maps. Normally, players would’ve considered this a matter worth celebrating. Unfortunately, not only did these new Level 100-plus neutral maps have very thin Mana, but due to the Orc Empire’s special circumstances, players also could not use Flying Mounts and Return Scrolls there. Moreover, there were still the corrosive foreign energies present in all neutral maps. As a result, most players were leery of operating in these newly created neutral maps.

However, the appearance of Silverwing City in the Orc Empire could resolve many of these problems. At the very least, players would no longer have to travel to a distant NPC city to recover. In fact, players would enjoy a much faster recovery rate when resting in Silverwing City than in NPC cities.

However, what truly excited Shi Feng wasn’t the change to the city’s Mana density, but to the city’s Airport.

Originally, Silverwing Town’s Airport was only the size of a sports arena. However, after Silverwing Town’s promotion, the Airport received a massive improvement as well. Now, not only had the Airport tripled in size, but the number of Airship platforms it housed had also increased by severalfold.

Now that Silverwing Town has become Silverwing City, I just need to spend some Coins to open up air routes to the various kingdoms’ capital cities. Once that’s done, players from the various kingdoms can travel directly to Silverwing City. At that time, just the income from collecting transportation fees would most likely rival the Freedom Hotel’s income. Shi Feng was filled with excitement and anticipation as he looked at the distant Airport.

In the past, Airports had been one of the main sources of income for Guild Cities. After all, not every player possessed a Flying Mount or a private house in the various Guild Cities. Hence, the Airships became one of the main modes of transportation for a large majority of God’s Domain’s player base.

Previously, Silverwing Town’s Airport was allowed to have only one air route. However, after the town got promoted to Basic City, its Airport could have up to five air routes. This number would also increase as the Airport or city got upgraded.

Before Shi Feng could recover from his joy over the Airport’s transformation, the sound of a system notification entered his ears.

System: Congratulations! Your Silverwing Town has been promoted into Silverwing City! The Transportation Firm has met the requirements for promotion to Bronze rank. Do you wish to promote the Transportation Firm?

It has reached the Bronze rank already? Shi Feng was stunned when he saw the system notification.

The Transportation Firm was a very special construction. Its promotion system was completely different from that of ordinary constructions.

Instead of requiring money or a Promotion Order, one needed to meet a set of conditions to promote the construction.

In the past, powers that owned a Transportation Firm had generally succeeded in upgrading their firm to the Bronze rank only after their Guild Cities reached the Advanced City standard. And as far as Shi Feng knew, even the best-performing powers had managed to meet their Transportation Firm’s promotion conditions only after their Guild Cities had reached the Intermediate City standard.

Now, Silverwing Town had just been promoted to Basic City, yet its Transportation Firm already met the conditions for promotion. Naturally, Shi Feng was surprised.

Once a Transportation Firm reached the Bronze rank, it would truly gain the ability to drive a Guild City’s economy.

After all, at the Bronze rank, the Transportation Firm would no longer limit its business to the country it was based in. It would expand its operations beyond the borders, becoming a hub that connected the neighboring kingdoms and empires. Even NPCs belonging to neutral powers would start using it as a hub.

In other words, not only would it become possible to find merchandise traded by the various countries’ neutral powers in the Transportation Firm, but the Transportation Firm itself could even become a place where NPC merchants would develop their business.

To put it simply, so long as a Guild City possessed a Bronze ranked Transportation Firm, the members of the ruling Guild would gain a significant boost in income. The Guild City in question would also have a much easier time becoming a Main City.

Meanwhile, after glancing at the system notification, Shi Feng chose to upgrade the Transportation Firm without hesitation. When he came outside, Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling surprised at the number and strength of the assembled cultivators.

These people should have come prepared, otherwise they wouldn’t have put together such a strong lineup. This was especially true of their leader, who was an old man that gave Yang Kai a great sense of pressure.

He was obviously an Above Immortal Ascension Boundary master.

Seeing Yang Kai coming out, countless pairs of eyes fixed upon him.

Li Yuan Chun smiled warmly and took the initiative to inquire, “May I ask, are you the Yang Family’s Little Lord, Yang Kai?”

“Indeed, and you are…”

“Supreme Solitary Sect, Li Yuan Chun.”

“Asura Sect, Ye Fang.”

“Falling Blossoms Temple, Hua Duan Hun… hehe.”

“Scarlet Tradition Sect, Xu Qian Hao.”

“Gemini Island…”

“Cloud Dragon Island…”

The people from the major Endless Sea Islands Sects introduced themselves one after another as they carefully examined Yang Kai. The more they looked though, the more surprised they felt. The young woman who had been waiting outside with them had already caused them quite a shock, but now seeing Yang Kai, many of them were genuinely dumbstruck.

The Yang Family’s Little Lord was no doubt younger than the young girl from before but he actually had an Immortal Ascension Boundary Second Stage cultivation.

Yang Kai nodded his head as he swept his eyes over the crowd, but when his gaze landed on the young woman standing slight apart from everyone else, his expression suddenly became a bit strange, “Bi Luo?”

The young woman coldly snorted, obviously not happy to see Yang Kai.

Qiu Yi Meng also turned her eyes towards this lone young woman, and after recognising Bi Luo, she was equally astonished, unconsciously casting a glance over at Yang Kai, her pretty face suddenly showing an ambiguous look.

Bi Luo was the Ash-Grey Cloud Evil Land Beguiling Demon Queen Shan Qing Luo’s most trusted maid. When Qiu Yi Meng and Luo Xiao Man were put under house arrest by Shan Qing Luo, Bi Luo had been the one they interacted with the most. Moreover, that one day, when they had intruded on Bi Luo and Yang Kai….

Now seeing this girl again, Qiu Yi Meng couldn’t help thinking of the scene that day, recalling the milky white liquid at the corner of Bi Luo’s lips…

Suddenly her face went bright red.

Yang Kai’s expression also went through a series of changes, involuntarily fixing his eyes on Bi Luo’s thin, delicate mouth.

[This little mouth… wasn’t bad…]

(Silavin: I have no idea why the author added this in…)

“So Young Master Yang and this girl are old acquaintances,” Li Yuan Chun smiled, “We also met her just now, we didn’t come here together.”

“I know.” Yang Kai nodded, Li Yuan Chun and others were from the Endless Sea Islands while Bi Luo was from the Ash-Grey Cloud Evil Land, and obviously they had not traveled here together.

[But, what is Bi Luo doing here?] Yang Kai suddenly felt a trace of uneasiness.

“I know why all of you are here; please come inside where we can talk.” Yang Kai gestured, stepping back and opening the way.

Listening to his words, everyone from the Endless Sea Islands smiled happily, the looks they sent him becoming significantly warmer. At the very least, he didn’t deny having obtained their Hallowed Treasures.

Did this mean that he was willing to return their stolen property?

Wondering about this in their hearts, everyone entered the house one by one.

“Bi Luo, you come in too.” Yang Kai casually said.

“You go first, I don’t want to get too close to you.” Bi Luo spat, since that day’s incident where she had eaten such a big loss at Yang Kai’s hands, she had developed a deep wariness towards him.

(PewPewLaserGun note: Oh the innuendos!)

Yang Kai laughed awkwardly despite trying not to but didn’t insist, simply nodding towards Qiu Yi Meng, “Take care of her.”

“En,” Qiu Yi Meng gently nodded and walked over to Bi Luo with a smile, “Ms Bi Luo, it’s been quite a while.”

“It’s you.” Bi Luo suddenly smiled charmingly, “It really has been a long time.”

Saying so, she rushed up and grabbed Qiu Yi Meng’s hand pulling her closer in a very intimate manner.
