The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 121.1
Chapter 121: Special Auction
The news that Yin’s Auction House was about to hold a special auction soon spread. The items being auctioned off were the rare and extremely pure excellent grade element liquids. Not only that, but there were a lot of them to be sold at more than a dozen vials. Because liquids of this purity were really rare, the auction was quite special. Only those who had an invitation letter were able to participate.
As mentioned earlier, the grades of element liquids were based on purity. Those with a purity below 30% were primary element liquids, those with a purity between 30% and 60% were intermediate element liquids, those with a purity between 60% and 80% were high-purity element liquids, those with a purity between 80% and 90% were excellent element liquids, and no liquid with a purity of over 90% had ever appeared.
It is important to know that the most common element liquids on the market were generally primary. For intermediate element liquids, a person would need to hire a mid-rank energy engineer to help extract them or purchase directly from energy companies. Advanced element liquids were even more difficult to find as senior energy engineers able to extract them were too rare.
Unexpectedly, Yin’s Auction House was holding an auction of more than a dozen excellent element liquids with a purity of over 80%. How could people not find it shocking?
Almost all the upper echelon families in the Empire who were able to hear of the auction began to move around after learning about this, trying every possible means to get an invitation letter. After all, each family always had one or two seedlings that they were focusing on cultivating.
For those with abilities, the attitude towards element liquid purity was, of course, the higher the better. Because the elemental liquid with low purity contained more impurities, when it was absorbed it would cause a certain amount of strain on the body of the ability user. In severe cases, the meridians might be blocked. The use of abilities required the use of the meridians in the body, so once a person’s meridians were blocked it would affect the use of their abilities.
The high-purity element liquid was much easier for ability users to absorb and didn’t put undue burden on the body and meridians, so it was more popular with ability users.
However, upgrading power wasn’t just a matter of blindly downing vials of elemental fluids, otherwise the wealthy families would have simply used their money to build one after another. Ability upgrades also related greatly to the physique of the person with the ability. The stronger the physique, the stronger the absorption and control of the abilities. For those with a poor physique, no matter how much elemental fluid they drank, it was useless since their bodies couldn’t absorb so much elemental energy.
The reason why Xing Mo’s ability could promote to the third level so quickly was, of course, related to his excellent physical fitness. When he was in the First Military Academy of the Empire, he was able to become the number one in the grade every year with excellent grades across the board, which was enough to prove his excellence.
Moreover, the higher level the power user was, the more elemental energy was required to upgrade. The effect of each tier of elemental liquid was often equal to several vials of the previous tier of elemental liquid, which is why those senior energy engineers were so popular. However, those senior energy engineers weren’t the only people able to make waves.
No one thought it likely that the Yin family was deliberately over exaggerating their stock, as it wasn’t the first time that Yin’s Auction House had auctioned the higher grades of elemental liquids. Simply, it used to be that it would only auction two vials of high-purity elemental liquids at a time. Although those elemental liquids were only high-purity, their purity had always been extremely close to reaching the excellent quality. Many people had tried to find out who the mysterious master was, but Yin Ye had always blocked them.
They had guessed before that the strength of this mysterious master must be more than high-purity. If they were to extract element liquid from a glass jade, it might be possible for them to reach excellent purity.
And the news released by Yin’s Auction House for this auction confirmed their guesses. After all, they all knew that Lin Luo had just brought back two pieces of priceless glass jade from the Fifth Star Territory. The master might have extracted the excellent purity element liquids from those two pieces of glass jade.
This special auction was definitely not to be missed! — This was the unified thought of almost everyone.
The invitation letter for the special sale had been raised to a sky-high price on StarNet with some people even offering up to 10 million credits for an invite, but no one who had received an invitation letter was willing to sell theirs.
In the days that followed, everyone in the Yin family became busy. Anyone who had something to do with the Yin family would try their best to come and get an invitation letter to the auction.
Yin Ye’s light brain was just about ready to blow itself up. Every day, people were begging him for invites through various relationships. The feeling was both pleasing and painful.
By the time there were only a few days left before the auction, Yin Ye personally came to the company to find Lin Luo, “Xiao Luo, how are things going with preparing the vials of excellent purity elemental liquid?”
“They’ve all been extracted. Here you go.” Lin Luo took out the boxes containing the vials of element liquid. Each box was a special carrying case specially customized for a single 100 milliliter vial of element liquid. The boxes’ special design made them both drop and shock resistant, which were to help prevent the vials placed inside from being accidentally broken.
