Lei Xiu knew that the twenty water turrets had been upgraded successfully!
“Level three… I hope the power doesn’t disappoint me…” Lei Xiu could not wait to get inside one of the water cannon towers and hit the switch.
A level-three water turret and a level-two water turret had the same way of gathering energy. They both drew energy from the depths of the sea and condensed it at the muzzle. However, the level-three water turret’s condensing energy was more than double the power of that of a level-two water turret!
With a boom, a cannonball shot out from the muzzle.
The cannonball drew a beautiful parabola in the air and flew further away from the island.
Before the cannonball reached the water surface, the surface of the sea directly below the cannonball was dented by the pressure of the cannonball in the sky. The surrounding seawater was also dented by the pressure.
Soon, a loud boom echoed, and a huge splash appeared on the surface of the sea. The shells continued to fall, and after a certain amount of time, they exploded!
The creatures in the water around the cannonball were all blasted into pieces.. Even some powerful creatures fainted from the explosion. Ripples appeared on the surface of the sea, and the seabed shook. A dent appeared where the cannonball had blasted, and the seawater was repelled for a long time, causing the place to become a vacuum!
“This… this power… it really didn’t disappoint me!” Lei Xiu looked at everything before him and stuttered in surprise.
“That’s great! With these level-three water turrets, it’s more or less guaranteed! It’s just a pity that I don’t have that many gold coins. Otherwise, 50 level-three water turrets would be simply too powerful!” Lei Xiu said to himself happily, then sighed bitterly.
“Island Master! Is this a newly built weapon? It’s so powerful!” The mermaids in the lake at the center of the island swam out when they heard the commotion and spoke excitedly.
“That’s right! This is a newly upgraded Water Cannons Tower. The damage of the current Water Cannons Tower is already very high! It won’t be like the last time when we faced the Razor Tiger Sharks. In the future, if we encounter that kind of situation again, these 20 Water Cannons Towers Cannons can completely contend with it!” Lei Xiu replied with a smile.
The level-three Water Cannons had been successfully upgraded, and Lei Xiu was in a good mood.
“That’s great! That’s great! Hehe!” All of the mermaids giggled.
Lei Xiu looked at the group of mermaids laughing like children and started playing around with them.
“Island Master! Come and catch me! Hehe!”
“Island Master! Come and catch me!”
“Don’t run! See how I’ll punish you if I catch you!”
“Come on, come on!”
Instantly, the mermaids and Lei Xiu giggled. The beautiful voices of the mermaids and their graceful figures attracted the attention of Lei Xiu. After all, he was a man. He was very happy to see such a scene.
Time flew by as Lei Xiu and the mermaids played!
“Hahahaha, I’ve finally caught you. Watch how I deal with you!” Lei Xiu teased the mermaid in his arms.
“Island Master! You’re bullying me!” The mermaid blushed slightly as she made a face at Lei Xiu with a silly smile.
[Ding! Congratulations on building Mermaid Island. You have received 20 experience points and 8,000 gold coins.]
The system’s voice suddenly sounded in his mind.
When Lei Xiu heard this, he laughed. Just as he was about to punish the mermaid in his arms, his brows suddenly furrowed slightly before relaxing. The smile on his face widened.
“Alright! Have fun! I have something to do!” Lei Xiu released the mermaid in his arms and said with a smile.
“Yes, Island Master!” the mermaid replied respectfully.
Although she was happy and comfortable staying with Lei Xiu, it was not up to her to know what the Island Master was doing.
Lei Xiu arrived at the center of the island and sent someone to call Mo Wen, Mo Nian and a few other mermaids over.
“You’re done forging iron weapons…” Lei Xiu muttered to himself as he looked at the ten additional sets of black weapons in his storage space.
“Island Master! You called for us?” After a while, Mo Wen, Mo Nian, and the other mermaids summoned by Lei Xiu came over.
“Mo Nian! You’re here! Take a look at this!” As he spoke, Lei Xiu smiled and took out the ten sets of iron weapons from his storage space. Similarly, it was a spear and a shield.
Initially, Mo Nian and the rest did not know what Lei Xiu wanted to do and were full of doubts. However, when Lei Xiu took out ten sets of iron weapons and placed them in front of them, they were all stunned. Mo Nian and the rest were all attracted by the black weapons.
With just one look, Mo Nian and the rest could tell that these new weapons were very powerful! Compared to the weapons in front of them now, their previous weapons were simply trash!
“Island Master! This… this is…” Mo Nian stuttered.
“That’s right! This is a newly forged weapon. It’s tougher and more powerful than the weapons you used before! Quickly try it!” Lei Xiu said with a smile.
Seeing such a good weapon, Mo Nian and the rest had been suppressing the excitement in their hearts. After obtaining the Island Master’s permission, they all rushed forward and each took a weapon.
The metal weapon was lighter than the bronze one, which made Mo Nian and the rest almost fall because they had used too much strength.
“Island Master! This… is so light! But I feel that it is even stronger!” Mo Nian weighed the iron spear in her hand and hurriedly said.
“That’s right! With this weapon, I’m sure all of you will become even more powerful! Your bronze spears from before are no longer suitable for you to use. From now on, all of you will use these iron weapons. The remaining weapons will be distributed according to the strength of the mermaids on the island!” Lei Xiu said slowly.
“Yes! Island Master! With this weapon, I can kill the previous Razor Tiger Shark Chief within three moves!” Mo Nian said excitedly.
“Alright! You guys can go down and distribute!” Lei Xiu smiled and replied.
“Yes, Island Master!” Mo Nian and the rest took their weapons and retreated happily.
Seeing how excited Mo Nian and the rest were, Lei Xiu smiled and shook his head before continuing to wait.
[Ding! Congratulations to the host for successfully building Mermaid Island. You have received 30 experience points and 15,000 gold coins.]
Not long after, a familiar feeling arose, and the system sounded again.
“It’s finally done!” Lei Xiu said excitedly.
Then, he called for Mo Nian and brought them to the edge of the island.
Mo Nian was also very surprised when she saw the fence at the edge, because she had just tested its durability. It would not be a problem to stop most of the underwater creatures and pirates.
After everything was done, Lei Xiu went to the center of the island to continue basking in the sun. He was in a good mood.
“Island Lord! We haven’t found a suitable place for the Tree of the Sea to live yet!” At that moment, a mermaid swam over from outside the island. It was the mermaid that Lei Xiu had sent out for recce!
“I see… I guess we’ll have to take it slow…” Lei Xiu was disappointed.
“Island Master! I do know of a mysterious place that might work!” Sharkwood walked over and spoke.
