231 The Appraisal Conference


When Su Bai returned to the villa, he looked at the invitation letter that was still intact on the living room table. He found that there were two VIP tickets inside the envelope after opening it.

Two days later, Su Bai and Bing Qingqing had a long-awaited day off and arrived at the venue of the appraisal conference early.

The conference was at the city center of the Great Wilderness City, and it was bustling with people at that moment.

“It seems that everyone is as enthusiastic about the appraisal conference as the labyrinth ruins,” Bing Qingqing smiled helplessly.

There was a mass of people walking around the city center. It was a world of difference from the Great Wilderness City yesterday!

Obviously, this mass of people had rushed back in time. They did not want to miss the annual Beast Egg Appraisal Conference.

They specially set up a stall covered with a layer of familiar red cloth, which was filled with all kinds of Beast eggs.

Regardless of the variety or quantity, it was much better than the clutches Su Bai saw in the academy’s warehouse!

Su Bai smiled, “Speaking of which, you need to train a new Beast.”

“Yeah. Although it’s still a while before I reach Gold-level, I have to prepare in advance.” Bing Qingqing nodded.

To become a Gold-level Beastmaster, one had to have at least three Beasts.

Of course, Su Bai would not worry about that. However, Bing Qingqing only had two Beasts. Previously, because of the Four-eared Glazecat, she couldn’t spare her attention to train new Beasts.

Bing Qingqing had been longing to train a new Beast and now was her chance.

In last year’s annual appraisal conference, the number of Beast eggs reached more than 600,000! The scale of this year’s event would be even grander than last year’s.

“Why are most of the Beast eggs not appraised?” Bing Qingqing asked as she came to a stall and looked at the Beasts with no information.

“Young lady, this is your first time here, right?” The stall owner explained enthusiastically, “The appraisal conference is not a random name. Most of the Beast eggs here cannot be appraised through normal methods due to various problems. Therefore, it’s all up to your own judgment and luck!”

“I didn’t know there was such a strange thing!” Bing Qingqing exclaimed.

Deciding on a Beast egg was a very important matter to Bing Qingqing. She definitely wouldn’t choose based on luck.

The reason for this was that there was a moral bottom line. If it was a mercenary with no bottom line, he would not be concerned if he picked a trash Beast egg. He would just get rid of the Beast egg with irregular means.

The Beast eggs in most of the stalls were ordinary. It was a little challenging for a Beastmaster to select one that was suitable for him. He had to have a lot of experience before selecting one.

“Forget it. I don’t want to decide blindly by luck,” Bing Qingqing smiled bitterly.

“Young lady, don’t regret it. Our appraisal conference is different from other places. It’s all based on reputation! Just take last year as an example. The dozens of Beast eggs bought from my stall didn’t have more than ten negative reviews!” the enthusiastic stall owner said.

“Really?”

“Of course! Do you know about the Nightshade?”

“I do…”

“That’s right. Last year, and two years ago, I had one here. If I lie to you, I’ll die a horrible death!” The stall owner patted his chest. “If you don’t believe me, you can ask someone else. Or you can check the news. There’s proof!”

Bing Qingqing was tempted. The Nightshade was an extremely special type of Beast. It just so happened to be a main Beast that she needed at the moment.

Su Bai was beside Bing Qingqing and had already checked all the Beast eggs here. The best one was a White Tiger with Gold-level potential. But all of them weren’t really impressive.

Most importantly, the price of these Beast eggs that were not appraised was not cheap. The cheapest cost fifty Silver-grade Beast-cores. It seemed that businessmen who could last for a long time were all black-hearted.

“Let’s go somewhere else,” Su Bai said.

However, the stall owner was so close to making a deal and was not willing to let them leave.

“My friend, are you not satisfied with the goods here?”

“Yes.”

Su Bai was pretty straightforward. His reaction made other people embarrassed.

However, as a stall owner who had been doing business for many years, Su Bai reply was not a problem to him at all. The stall owner directly pointed to a larger stall not far away and said, “Then I’ll recommend you to Bai Meng. There’s definitely something you want!”

“Why?”

“You can ask anyone who has attended several conferences, and no one would dare to say that he is black-hearted!”

There were quite a number of Beastmasters at the appraisal conference, and almost all of them had a need for Beast eggs.

However, when it came to which stall was the most lively. Obviously, it was Bai Meng’s stall as the stall owner had mentioned.

“He’s the most honest person. You’ll know when you see it for yourself.”

With the stall owner’s repeated assurance, Su Bai and Bing Qingqing came to Bai Meng’s stall. But there were too many people here. There was no way for them to get close at all.

But at that moment, a burst of laughter suddenly came from the crowd.

“What a joke! There’s actually a Saltorat among so many Beast eggs!”

“Hahahaha, he’s unlucky to a certain level. Such a weirdo!”

“Hey, I’m new here. What exactly is this place for?”

“Newbie, go and look at the notice board over there.”

The curious newbie looked at the notice board nearby. Among the words, the most prominent was the name, Bai Meng, other than the Great Wilderness City.

Su Bai and Bing Qingqing also took a look. They realized it was the same Bai Meng as what the stall owner said earlier.

Bai Meng had quite a reputation in the appraisal conference. At every appraisal conference, he would announce the origin of the Beast eggs.

More importantly, after many years of appraising, Bai Meng had sold a total of more than ten Beast eggs with Diamond-level potential! And, he sold more than a hundred Beast eggs with Platinum-level potential as well!

In an instant, Bai Meng’s name spread throughout the entire Great Wilderness City. There were even many people who dared to come from other places just to buy a Beast egg.

To an ordinary Beastmaster, being able to obtain a Beast egg with Platinum-level potential was equivalent to receiving divine help in their slim life as a Beastmaster and making them stronger. It was something many Beastmasters could only dream of.

“No wonder, the shop owner really didn’t lie to us, uh …”

Bing Qingqing blinked her eyes, but when she read the next part, her excitement was gone.

Bai Meng had a guarantee of quality, and at the same time, rules were inevitable.

One could only look at the Beast eggs and not touch them. Moreover, you can only choose within three minutes. After that, Bai Meng would randomly pick one for the buyer.

The price of all Beast eggs was the same, 10 Gold-grade Beast-cores!

“It’s too expensive…” said Bing Qingqing. She had only saved up 20 Gold-grade Beast-cores since she came to the Great Wilderness City.

One Beast egg would cost Bing Qingqing half of her savings!

“That’s reasonable.” Su Bai chuckled. “Look, if you pick a Beast egg with a potential lower than Bronze-level, you can get another chance to choose.”

What Su Bai meant was that as long as Bing Qingqing paid for it, she could at least get a Beast egg with Bronze-level potential.
