254 Battle Aura Division 1

 Qi Xia sighed and said, "There are at least twenty ingredients on your list that cannot be bought on the market. I know of some people who have these on hand, but they would never sell it. If you really need them, I can point you to a few directions."

"What directions?" Shen Yanxiao stared at Qi Xia. She believed that his connections definitely exceeded her imagination as he was an unscrupulous businessman.

"Firstly, you can look for mercenaries in the Black City as they would often have some precious medicinal ingredients for sale. But their prices would be extremely high. Secondly, there's a Reward Palace Hall in the north of the Longxuan Empire, where they store a few of the ingredients on your list. However, those items have never been sold for money. Thirdly, the God Wind Alliance."

Aside from the only method that involved the mercenaries, Shen Yanxiao could not move forward with the other two options for the time being. It really did seem like it would be difficult for her to gather all the medicinal ingredients that she needed.

"Is there no other option?" Tang Nazhi frowned. It was not difficult to get the item from the Black City, but they would have a problem with the Reward Palace Hall and God Wind Alliance.

Qi Xia thought about that for a moment. Then he said, "There is another way to get some of the ingredients."

"What is it?" Shen Yanxiao asked.

"The Herbalist Division will hold a competition every month, and the winner can request one precious medicinal ingredient from the academy's medicine storage room. However, I do not know much about the storage room. I also do not know if any of the ingredients you needed are there at all."

Most of the divisions at the Saint Laurent Academy would hold a competition each month to boost their students' passion for learning. For the Herbalist Division's competition, the reward was related to their field of study. Shangguan Xiao had managed to place first for five consecutive months last semester, and he had obtained quite a few precious items from the academy's medicine storage room.

Medicine storage room?

Shen Yanxiao's expression brightened. The medicine storage room tempted her instead of the mere reward from the competition.

"Please don't tell me that you're thinking of 'taking' things from that storage room?" Qi Xia asked with a cough. He had managed to guess the thoughts in Shen Yanxiao's mind. He had also seen her incredible skills in thievery.

Shen Yanxiao quirked her eyebrows.

"Why not?"

Qi Xia covered his forehead with his palm.

"You may be good, but I do not recommend it. It is one of the core areas in our academy, and at least dozens of teachers from various divisions guard it. Furthermore, no one knows how many defensive magic and traps are deployed in the medicine storeroom. If you were to sneak in now, it is hard to say what dangers await you there." The Saint Laurent Academy did not lack magi. The dean spared no efforts to safeguard the critical areas in the academy to guarantee the safety of their resources.

Even though Shen Yanxiao was extremely skilled, it was still difficult for her to circumvent all the defensive magic deployed there completely.

"I recommend that you start with the Herbalist Division's monthly competition. You can think about going after the medicine storage room when you are stronger." Qi Xia was worried that Shen Yanxiao would get into trouble if she were to sneak into the storage room so soon. Even though she had strong magic and battle aura, she did not have the skills of a powerful magus.

"You might have a better chance when you reached the level of an advanced archer or an advanced warlock."

"Advanced level..." Shen Yanxiao stroke her jaw. Yun Qi said that she was at an intermediate level, and she would need time to advance to the next level. However, as for archery... She was not very sure of her level then, and she would need some time to take the examinations before she could make further plans.
