Urban Martial Arts System - Chapter 12
Behind the second iron door was a huge pool. In the pool, the water glowed a terrible green.
“There is a problem with the pool water!” Zhou Ping reasoned without the need for much thinking.
“Congratulations to the barrier-breaker for coming to the second level.
“In myths and legends, there is a kind of water called weak water. This weak water can’t even float a goose feather. After the development of martial arts, people found a liquid similar to weak water. It is not poisonous, but it has a very high gravitational force. Everything on the surface of the water is dragged down. The closer you are to the liquid, the greater the attraction.
“Martial arts experts also named this kind of water weak water. Surprisingly, there are creatures living in this water. This creature is a kind of fish similar to piranha, which is very aggressive. Their bites can easily crush steel plates. It’s called Irontooth.
“Within this pool, there is a large number of Irontooths. The barrier-breaker must pass through the weak water and reach the opposite side to pass. Please continue to work hard and break through this level.”
The electronic sound explained without emotion. Zhou Ping looked around and made some discoveries.
“Barrier-breakers who passed the first level will get rewards.”
After the explanation was finished, the conversation suddenly changed.
“There are rewards for breaking through?” Zhou Ping was overjoyed. The system gave promotion value, but he didn’t expect that there would be rewards for passing the level. This added up to two rewards, so how could he be unhappy?
In the hall outside the seven levels, Director Zheng, the principal, and others were intently looking at the big screen. Even Li Xiaoyi, who was knocked out earlier, was sitting in the hall.
“Is there a reward for breaking through?” asked Fu Xueyi, Zhou Ping’s lackey.
“Of course there is,” Director Zheng answered Fu Xueyi’s question.
“If you pass, you will be rewarded. For ordinary warriors, every level is dangerous. But if you pass, there will naturally be corresponding rewards.”
“What are the rewards?” Fu Xueyi asked curiously.
“Generally speaking, martial arts, weapons, pills, and mechanisms. The rewards will be selected among these four.” Director Zheng looked solemn.
“Then what is the best choice?”
“Although there are four types, the specific rewards given out are always different. Generally speaking, mechanisms are the best choice. Weapons and elixirs are the next, and the worst is martial arts.” Before Fu Xueyi asked questions, he continued, “Because the barriers are continuous, what is needed is something that can immediately be used. Depending on the specific utility, the mechanisms can often play a very important role at critical times, so the mechanisms are generally the first choice. For many warriors, weapons are a very important factor in increasing combat power, and it is also very important. The pill can also have miraculous effects depending on its effect.
“For example, a Small Recovery Pill can recover injuries. A Small Energy Pill can restore internal strength. Small Rage Pills can make people berserk for a short period of time, and both strength and internal strength will be increased. As such, pills are also a good choice.
“The worst thing to choose is martial arts!” Director Zheng said a lot in one breath and felt a little thirsty. Fu Xueyi quickly brought a cup of tea.
“Choosing the martial arts is the worst choice. Is it because martial arts require time and cannot immediately be used?” Taking advantage of the time Director Zheng was drinking, Fu Xueyi hurriedly asked.
“Not only that.” After a sip of tea to hydrate his throat, Director Zheng continued to explain.
“The rewards given here are not top-notch items, and so are the martial arts. If you can successfully break through the barriers, there will naturally be a lot of forces wanting to recruit you. So no matter which option, it is far better than choosing martial arts.”
“And look at the second level. This level tests the barrier-breaker’s agility. Have you noticed that there are some broken pieces of rotten wood in the corner?” Director Zheng pointed to the pile of rotten wood.
“Those rotten wood are the key to breaking through?” Fu Xueyi said suddenly.
“Rotten wood? You would be wrong if you really think it’s rotten wood. It’s shaded driftwood, the only thing that can float on weak water.”
“At this level, you must throw the shards of shaded driftwood, and then step on it and pass through the weak water.” Director Zheng drank the whole cup in one gulp.
“Well, it seems that Young Master Zhou has never learned agility skills!” hearing Director Zheng’s words, Fu Xueyi shouted.
“I guessed that.” Director Zheng sighed.
“What Young Master Zhou learned is horizontal training. To be able to practice it to such a high level, it not only requires talent, it also requires a lot of time and energy. It seems that Young Master Zhou wants to specialize in foreign skills. ”
“Isn’t this level very dangerous for Young Master Zhou?” Fu Xueyi was worried.
“Danger? I think he’d better die at this level,” Li Xiaoyi interjected viciously.
“Huh, shut up, slut. You are nothing but Young Master Zhou’s toy. What qualifications do you have to talk.” Fu Xueyi looked at Li Xiaoyi in disdain.
“You… I haven’t lost yet. The admission notice hasn’t arrived yet!” Li Xiaoyi raged.
“What are you arguing about?” Director Zheng, as a master of martial arts, had his own aura. For a time, Li Xiaoyi only felt that she was overwhelmed by his aura. Fu Xueyi smiled.
“Young Master Zhou cannot master an agility skill, but that doesn’t mean he’ll fail this level. It depends on whether there are items that can help Young Master Zhou.” Director Zheng turned his eyes to the screen and felt nervous.
Now in front of Zhou Ping, there was a small screen listing multiple options.
“Let’s see. The weapons have swords, guns, swords… The quality is not as good as the previous alloy swords, no! The pill… No! Pills Why do you carry a word “small”? I’ve taken a lot of pills with the word “big.” I don’t need them either.
“Mechanisms? Sleeve arrow? Mechanism bird? Why are they all made of wood? It’s now the age of science and technology. There are robots. Who still uses these antiques?! It’s too low-grade. No.
“Sure enough, I better choose skills. Let me see all the martial arts technique,” Zhou Ping muttered to himself while reviewing the options.
“Internal skill? External skill? How come these are all bad skills?” As the eldest young master of the Zhou family, Zhou Ping had seen a lot of good exercises. Why are they all trash? After sighing, Zhou Ping’s eyes finally found a skill.
“’Flying on the Grass,’ an agility skill. After training, it can only slightly increase my running speed? It’s really a worthless skill.”
It’s a pity that there was only one agility tskill. Zhou Ping hesitated, then chose ‘Flying on the Grass’.
“Barrier-breaker chose ‘Flying on the Grass.’ After the reward is distributed, the barrier-breaker is requested to start as soon as possible.”
As soon as the announcement came, Director Zheng’s eyes became dark.
