The Ocean Lord Is Unusually Powerful - Chapter 151: Rewards from the Lair, Core Acquired (1)
Ji Chen looked at his level again.
Only level 15…
It looked quite pathetic.
Sigh, he still had to take it a step at a time.
Ji Chen looked at the resources scattered throughout the cave, and a smile finally appeared on his face.
Although the process had been difficult and treacherous, the result was good.
Not only did he take down the pirate leader Robert, but he also successfully found this batch of rare resources.
Killing two birds with one stone!
After this period of time, the other army groups also managed to control the remaining pirates. When they heard that Robert was dead, many of the pirates chose to surrender.
Seven three-masted pirate ships in the harbor also fell into his hands.
These pirate ships were filled with cannons and were in good condition, ready to be used at any time.
Ji Chen left a part of the army to guard the surrendered pirates and the resources stored in various parts of the cave.
He planned to enter the secret passage opened by Robert.
The secret passage was not large, only as high as a person, and the width could only accommodate two people walking side by side. Even Naga warriors couldn’t squeeze in even if they lowered their heads.
Seeing this, Ji Chen could only reluctantly ask the Naga warriors to stay behind and entered the passage with the smaller-sized Dragon Blood Muriocs.
After more than ten minutes, they arrived at a hidden bay.
By the simple dock on the bay, there was a three-masted warship moored.
This should be the ship that Robert used for his escape.
Shifting his gaze, Ji Chen began to observe the surrounding environment.
There were steep cliffs on the left, right, and rear of the bay, covered with lush trees.
The treetops were artificially tied together with ropes, creating a dense canopy that almost completely blocked the sky, not even allowing a hint of moonlight to penetrate.
The front of the bay was concealed by vegetation, cleverly disguised.
Even if a ship sailed past from the outside, it would be oblivious to the hidden bay concealed behind, where a ship lay hidden.
However, it was evident that Robert no longer required this vessel. He had already boarded the ship that would take him to paradise and departed without delay.
Ji Chen’s mood improved.
The harvest this time was not only the seven pirate ships docked in the nearby harbor but also this one, making a total of eight.
Obtaining eight legitimate warships all at once was simply a huge profit!
He wanted to burst with excitement from earning a fortune!
Ji Chen left a few Dragon Blood Muriocs to guard the ship and turned back through the secret passage to the cave.
With a wave of his hand, he collected the scattered Mithril and Adamantium on the ground one by one.
“Ding- You have obtained 7000 units of Mithril.”
“Ding- You have obtained 5000 units of Adamantium.”
It seemed that these were the rare resources that the Black Skeleton Pirate
Crew plundered from that treasure ship, totaling 12,000 units of rare resources, which was not bad.
These resources could be used as materials for the next upgrade of the military talent tree.
On the other side of the cave, there were large wooden crates placed.
Ji Chen signaled a few Naga warriors to come forward and forcefully pried open the nailed lids with their sharp bone blades.
Inside were numerous fine steel scimitars and exquisitely crafted iron crossbows.
Looking at these weapons, Ji Chen pondered.
[Fine Steel Scimitar]
[Effect]: (D Increases slashing speed (2) Enhances armor-piercing ability
[Fine Steel Iron Crossbow]
[Effect]: 0 Increases penetration ability (2) Increases armor-piercing ability
Generally speaking, except for a few rare cases, the tier of a military unit cannot be changed.
However, human units, humanoid units, could improve their combat effectiveness by changing weapons.
For example, replacing a wooden spear with an iron spear or a hunting bow with a stronger bow.
For elite pirates like the second-tier 4-star human units, if they could equip better weapons, their combat effectiveness would increase significantly.
Based on the current quantity of these scimitars and crossbows, it was enough to equip all the pirates under his command.
With a wave of his hand, he ordered the army to start moving these weapons out of the cave and stack them at the harbor.
He had already called for the New Moon to return from its roaming outside the archipelago. The Tidal Sea Spirit was piloting the New Moon at full speed, and they would soon begin loading and unloading the spoils here.
In addition to a batch of rare resources and these weapons, Robert had also left a batch of blueprints here.
They were stacked up thickly.
Ji Chen casually picked them up and roughly skimmed through them.
Although there were no extremely rare blueprints, most of them were practical buildings, such as ordinary lighthouses, advanced residences, small ports, breweries, wine cellars, blacksmith shops, and the like.
Many of them were buildings that the Crown of the Ocean currently did not have.
Naturally, Ji Chen accepted them all.
With these blueprints, the prosperity of the Crown of the Ocean in terms of buildings would be greatly enhanced.
In addition, there were several boxes of jewelry, shining brightly and very eye-catching. Perhaps he could transport them to nearby islands where indigenous settlements were located and sell them in exchange for resources.
It was said that Robert had also hidden some resources in several places outside the islands.
But unfortunately, no one knew where they were hidden except for him.
Ji Chen could only sigh with regret.
Looking around, there didn’t seem to be anything else worth noting.
He walked out of the cave with his hands behind his back, enjoying the breeze at the harbor.
The full moon shone in the sky, and the sea breeze brushed against his face.
The sea surface was calm.
In the distance, the massive silhouette of the New Moon appeared and slowly stopped at the docking area.
The cargo entrance on the ship’s side opened automatically, and the gangway descended. The Naga warriors began to move the supplies into the cargo hold.
“Benbo, take the Dragon Blood Muriocs to nearby islands and clear out the remaining pirates there. Bring back those willing to surrender, and kill those who resist..”
