Since Happy was wearing his armor, he can choose not to bow to the marshal .
Happy saluted the marshal with Qin Qiong .
In the tent was the marshal, who was over fifty but still vigorous and energetic, and he also had an incredibly astonishing presence . He sat at the center of the tent like a hill . The Prince of Qin and seven other generals who had extraordinary presences as well as high ranks stood by his side . Their bright helmets and awe-inspiring gazes caused a grim atmosphere to fill the tent!
This lineup caused even Happy, who was brave, to be unable to help himself but to exercise restraint on his mind and the aggressive air he released .
There were two other people Happy met before standing in front of the generals, but they were dressed normally, and they looked like wanderers .
One of them was Ming Cult’s master, Zhang Wuji . He was smiling at Happy .
“I knew that once you came to the army, you will definitely reveal your talents soon, and just as I expected, you did it . But truly, you did something really great this time . Priest Xi Yin and Witch Wan Wan are both evil cult elites . This is a clear sign that you have grown stronger . ” Right when they met each other, Zhang Wuji was eager to send a private message to Happy .
Happy nodded with a smile and replied politely, “I was just lucky . ”
Zhang Wuji smiled and said nothing else .
The other person was Wang Chongyang, who practiced Pre-heaven Skill and was at the peak of Myth Realm . He was even stronger than Zhu Yuyan and Shi Zhixuan .
Wang Chongyang was dressed in green, and there was a gratified smile on his face while he sized up Happy calmly as he walked into the tent .
The old marshal sitting on the chair released a string of hearty laughter . “Hahahaha! It’s just as they say, heroes come from the young! The young from the Murong Clan are all talented and possess extraordinary grace while possessing otherworldly strength . The rumors are indeed true!
“Yesterday, you helped me obtain a valuable map of the enemy camp, and you also obtained information about Demon General Zhao Deyan . Today, you led an army and killed nearly ten thousand Mongolain cavaliers, thereby committing great meritorious service . Now, at night, you saved Miss Shi and performed meritorious deed after meritorious deed . How should I reward you?”
“Marshal, you praise me too much . ”
Happy answered calmly, “The country is in trouble, and everyone should do their duty to the country . I might be a wanderer but I understand what is right and wrong . I’m just doing what I can while I kill on the battlefield . ”
“You know how to be humble and did not become arrogant because of your achievements . Not bad!” The marshal was very satisfied with Happy’s answer . He stroked his beard and looked over the eight generals . “But those who did well must be rewarded, and those committed wrong must be punished . That has always been my principle .
“Generals, Happy has committed meritorious deeds repeatedly . How should I reward him?”
The eight generals and the Prince of Qin looked at each other . One of them wrapped his fist in his palm and answered, “General, killing ten thousand cavaliers from the enemy camp is indeed a great feat, but Happy only managed to do so after he gathered more than one thousand cavaliers . Why don’t we promote him one rank further and make Happy a battalion commander so that he can lead two thousand soldiers and continue killing enemies?”
“Hm…” The marshal nodded slowly, but he noticed that Wang Chongyang had put on a displeased expression while he was by his side . His tone changed . “Reverend Chongyang, you seem to have an opinion about this . Why don’t you voice your thoughts?”
“Marshal, us wanderers don’t really know what rewards the army gives when we perform meritorious deeds, but you should indeed reward those who did well . However, we are, at the end of the day, wanderers, and sooner or later, we have to return to our lives as wanderers . Hence, these military titles are not a must for us . Perhaps the military title alone is a form of encouragement for the warriors in the army, but to us wanderers, it might not necessarily be a good thing . ”
“Reverend, your words ring true . ” The marshal put on a contemplative look before a stern look appeared on his face, and he made a decision . “Since that’s the case, aside from promoting you to a battalion commander, I will reward you with another thirty thousand points!”
A system notification rang in Happy’s mind .
“Obtained the Prince of Qin’s favor . Relationship status with Shi Feixuan increased to Trusted . Obtained 2,000 points .
“During the Emperor’s Announcement Event, you completed one of Dali’s milestones: Attack the enemy camp and killing ten thousand cavaliers, thereby obtaining the marshal’s acknowledgements . He decided to break the rules and promote you to a battalion commander . You also obtained another thirty thousand points . ”
The continuous stream of system notifications finally ended, and right when it did, a solemn and dignified system notification rose through the Chinese plains .
“Heroes of the land, Happy completed one of the important Dali milestones during the Emperor’s Announcement event, attacking the enemy camp and killing ten thousand cavaliers, which led to him receiving the marshal’s acknowledgement! He has been specially promoted to a battalion commander, and he also obtained an additional thirty thousand points!”
Right now, it was midnight . Countless martial artists were resting and reorganizing at the back . When they suddenly heard this sensational news that shocked the people, the crowd instantly burst into commotion .
This was practically the same as a Class Five Official . It was a military title that can only be exchanged with one million points, and more importantly, he can lead a number of soldiers that was as great as three groups led by senior captains, which meant that they can lead two thousand soldiers .
Right now, the other two senior-rank captains—Langye as well as Violent Wind and Bloody Rain—were still working hard for the points for six hundred and twenty five cavaliers . Countless sects were still working hard for the title of a medium-rank captain, and many other players were fighting hard for the title of a junior-rank captain or for rewards, but Happy had already taken such a huge step forward that he had reached a height that they cannot hope to touch .
Class One Hall was completely rendered speechless .
Happy secured his place at the top of War Achievement Points Rank with the other sixty-nine thousand points that were given to him when he took to his duties as a battalion commander, and he was fifty thousand points ahead of the second place!
As for Class One Hall, Dream Clouds and Blood Robes did not have their points rise anymore after they had their points drained . Only Barren Murderer alone was ranked up there, and even he was ranked out of the top ten .
The people from Mu Clan were naturally delighted, and their morale was high . Quite a number of people gathered together to talk to each other .
“What the heck?! I heard that you can only get that title after you get one million points! It’s one million points, you know?! Just how many Mongolian cavaliers do you need to kill for that number of points?”
“You dummy, you failed in your maths, didn’t you? One million points is naturally one hundred thousand Mongolian cavaliers . If it’s a double point quest, you can afford to kill fewer . Whew… I’ll make a bet that once the boss excited the crowd so much, there will definitely be countless people who will begin farming for the title of a middle-rank captain and activate the large-scale quests of harassing the enemy flanks . ”
“That’ll definitely be the case . ”
“The quests that they do everyday are just small scale quests . Look at our boss, he got himself the rank of a battalion commander in one go, and also tens of thousands of points—”
“Hurry up and replenish your supplies . It’s about to daylight soon, and our clan master might activate another large-scale quest . At that time, we’ll have another chance in getting a lot of points . ”
“Tsk tsk… I wonder if there are any other large-scale quests at a battalion commander’s rank . ”
“Oh, that’s right . Our boss can now lead two thousand soldiers, and if he exchanges all his points for them, he will get at least one thousand and four hundred cavaliers . But if we add in Boss Silver Wolf and Boss Thunder’s cavaliers, we should have no problem in getting four thousand to five thousand cavaliers . ”
As if they were worried that Class One Hall’s people would not know about it, the people from Mu Clan talked about their operation in the daylight excitedly!
Only Happy’s expression was rather sour when he walked out of the tent . His head was lowered, and he walked to the back of the camp with a scowl on his face .
‘The ancient proverb is right, the archers will always shoot the birds who take the lead, and right now, I’m that dumb bird who took the lead . ’ Happy grumbled in his heart .
Even though the title of a battalion commander and the additional points did indeed make him excited for a while, now that his rank was high, it meant that his responsibility was great as well . Once he reached the title of a battalion commander, the marshal’s first order was to make him head to the depths of the enemy camp with an army and burn their supplies .
Even if he used his toes to think, this sort of quest where he was supposed to commit arson will definitely face high risks!
