Blacksmith: You Are Making Mjolnir For The Forging Exam? - Chapter 61
Chapter 61: Mid-Term Inspection
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“During the assessment, outstanding students will be accepted by the major companies in the world in advance, and they will be guaranteed employment. For example, the Tianji Institute, which provides equipment for the battlefield, and the Tool Soul Academy, which has many talented students, will be able to have the best future as long as they are selected by these institutions
“Moreover, the National Artifact Research Department will send people to guide you. The academy has already paved the way for you. Whether you can reach a high position or not will depend on your ability.”
Zhou Yan spoke patiently, and the audience was so excited that their blood was boiling. Some of them were so excited that their hearts almost jumped out of their chests.
“Professor, if we perform well, won’t we have a chance to go to the National Artifact Research Department?”
Below the stage, a young man dressed in a blacksmith’s uniform raised his hand and spoke excitedly.
Everyone immediately focused their eyes on Professor Zhou Yan’s face, hoping to get a definite answer.
The moment Professor Zhou Yan heard her student’s question, she was stunned for a second. Then, she shook her head with a smile and said, “Now, you should set your sights on the Tianji Institute or the Tool Soul Academy. Places like the National Artifact Research Department aren’t places that you can come into contact with right now.”
“Everyone in that place is like a dragon. Even the lowest rank is a six-star blacksmith. Even I’m not qualified to enter. Plus, it’s very rare to get a six-star blacksmith’s guidance. Maybe with some guidance, I can advance to a five-star blacksmith.”
After listening to Professor Zhou Yan’s explanation, the students immediately looked enlightened. They could not help but look forward to the graduation assessment soon.
On the podium, the two middle-aged instructors revealed joyful expressions. Looking at the excited faces of these students reminded them of themselves twenty years ago.
Zhou Yan immediately clapped her hands and took out a marked instrument from her bag, “Each student, please take out the rough parts of the equipment that you have refined and put them on the table. A professor will help you check them one by one. If there are any problems, you can come to the three of us at any time.”
At that moment, the classroom became lively.
With Professor Zhou Yan’s signal, the students immediately took out the equipment that they had brought with them.
After seeing the difference between their equipment, the students immediately began to discuss.
“Hey, your longsword is impressive. Even though it’s just the rough parts, you can clearly see the difference. As expected of our group’s top student in forging!”
At this time, a strange fluctuation spread in the class. The surrounding people were immediately attracted by it. They found that the longsword on Qian Rong’s table was emitting a thick blue light.
“This Qian guy has a ton of money. He came up with a graduation design that actually uses threaded gold to make a rough shape. He’s too much!”
The rough shape of the longsword made of threaded gold immediately attracted the attention of many people. However, at this time, the crowd discovered an even more powerful piece of equipment that was announced to the public. That was the Feather Armor forged by the class monitor in the first row!
The armor was not heavy. Instead, it appeared very light, and its surface was emitting a gentle blue light. The feathers on the armor’s surface were connected from head to tail, interlocking with each other. It was enough to show that the opponent’s forging skills were superb!
Right then, even Director Yu, who was on the stage, was amazed by the Feather Armor. He could not help but exclaim, “Professor Zhou’s students are really intelligent. They’re capable of making such a marvelous item at such a young age!”
Professor Zhou, who was standing at the side, had a casual smile on her face. She seemed to be thinking about something, and her gaze was uncertain.
“The Tang family’s grandsons are all blacksmiths. Under the influence of aristocratic families, it’s normal that they can make such equipment. What’s so great about it?”
At this moment, a boy in the classroom who did not have a good relationship with the class monitor spoke with a disdainful expression. Then, he immediately took out the rough outline that he had made.
When everyone heard someone ridicule the class monitor who had a good relationship with most people, they immediately turned around unwillingly. However, their gazes were attracted by the faint green light on the table. All the surrounding students opened their mouths in surprise.
On the podium, Professor Kong, who had not said anything earlier, stood straight. At this point, he also seemed a little moved. “To actually see Premium-grade equipment during the mid-term inspection this time… The students of this batch are amazing!” he said with a surprised expression.
Everyone’s gazes converged and discovered that the boy who had spoken arrogantly had a rough dagger placed on the table. Due to the quenching and forging of the weapon, it had lost some of its heat. Not only was its appearance not smooth, but even its blade was slightly distorted. From the looks of it, its forging level was not even comparable to a three-star weapon.
However, the gem embedded in the dagger was constantly emitting light, nourishing the entire blade. It appeared extremely strange.
“What is this thing? How can it be considered Premium-grade equipment?”
A boy with acne all over his face snorted coldly. He was the class monitor, Tang Mu’s, best friend. He did not want to see this guy who did not respect the class monitor gain the limelight.
When the boy next to the class monitor said that, the other boy immediately glared at him and cursed, “What would a lackey like you know? This equipment of mine has been sent to be appraised. It’s genuine Premium-grade equipment. Also, let me tell you, the gemstone embedded in my dagger is an Epic-grade material, Darkfrost Stone. You wouldn’t understand even if I told you, country bumpkin!”!
His words caused the boy to be speechless for a long time. His face was flushed and, he was so ashamed that he wished he could find a hole to hide in.
The class monitor beside him immediately stood up from his seat when he saw the situation. His expression was ice-cold as he said, “How can an ordinary family like yours afford Darkfrost Stone? Do you think we’re fools?”
The gazes of the surrounding people immediately became doubtful. The class monitor’s words made sense. The price of Darkfrost Stone was at least 1.5 million. An ordinary family probably would not be able to afford it in ten years.
However, the young man did not panic. Instead, he proudly said, “I picked it up from the market. Hehe, you must be jealous. You’re not so lucky!”
Seeing that things in the classroom had become more and more chaotic, Zhou Yan immediately stopped the riot.
In order to prevent such a situation from happening again, she immediately picked up the marking instrument and walked down the stage, ready to start the mid-term inspection.
The two instructors standing at the side could not help but sigh in their hearts upon seeing that the equipment taken out by the students was not ordinary. The standards of the students in Group One were indeed high.
Not long after, Professor Zhou Yan marked all the equipment present. However, when they registered the information in the register, they discovered that the information in Wu Mo’s column had always been blank.
Only then did everyone realize. Wu Mo had not come to class yet!
“Psst, that guy named Wu Mo isn’t here yet. Could it be that he’s used to skipping class?” a thin young man in the classroom said with a smile.
“I think it’s no surprise. It’s possible that Wu Mo didn’t do anything at all. Without his work, he wouldn’t be able to attend this mid-term inspection.”
