“Height potion?” Jiang Cheng was stunned. “How to use it?”

“Just spray it on your forehead and you’ll grow a centimeter taller,” Yang Kuifeng replied. “Oh right, I heard that when that person was still a Rank 1 Evolver, the height potion he made could only increase one centimeter. Two years ago, he was already a Rank-2 Evolver and could increase his height by two centimeters. I reckon that with every increase in level, it will increase by another centimeter,” said Yang Kuifeng.

Pausing for a moment, he smiled bitterly and continued, “We’ve bought some of the height potion that that person made. It looked like normal, plain water. But the strange thing is that as long as you spray it on your forehead, you can grow taller. As long as you’re alive, it’s fine. It doesn’t matter if you’re male or female, race or even age. You can forcibly grow taller. ”

“Actually, this isn’t the strangest thing, ” he said resignedly. ” What’s really strange is that the height increase doesn’t follow the law of conservation of energy at all. It’s as if the height really increased out of thin air. By the way, as your height increases, your weight will naturally increase as well. It’s not that you’re forcibly elongated, but that the thickness of your hands and feet will also change accordingly.”

Jiang Cheng was really surprised when he heard that. That Evolver’s ability was also very magical. Regardless of age, race, or gender, anyone could grow taller. “Is that person strong?” he asked curiously.

“Not really. Although his vitality is not weak, his physique and strength are not strong among Evolvers of the same level. His power is only making that strange height potion.” Yang Kuifeng replied.

Jiang Cheng suddenly understood. However, if that person could utilize the height potion wisely, he would probably be very powerful. For example, if he could control ants and make them grow a few centimeters taller. When the ants grew taller in proportion, their strength would grow as well. If that Evolver created a large troop of gigantic ants, it would be very terrifying and could make one’s scalp go numb. Of course, this was under the premise that he could control the ant colony. Otherwise, he would be courting death.

“Are there any other evolved abilities?” Jiang Cheng asked eagerly.

Yang Kuifeng was willing to share information. He thought for a moment and said, “We’ve met an Evolver whose special ability is time bomb generation.”

“Time bomb generation? What kind of strange ability is that?” Jiang Cheng asked.

Yang Kuifeng explained, “A time bomb will appear in his field of vision. The time is fixed, and it’ll explode once every 24 hours. He must install the time bomb somewhere else within 24 hours and let it explode. Otherwise, he will die.”

“He’ll even blow himself up?” Jiang Cheng was stunned.

“You think it’s strange too, don’t you?” Yang Kuifeng didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “After that Evolver installs a time bomb outside, a new time bomb will appear in his field of vision, and then the timer will be reset. It’s also twenty-four hours. However, the strange thing is that generating those bombs doesn’t seem to have consumed much of his energy. It’s as if he has an inexhaustible supply of bombs.”

After a pause, he added, ” Oh right, I remember that the closer the countdown to zero, the more powerful those bombs are. They don’t rely on his Evonergy, as if they are completely separate entities from him. He can detonate them in advance, but he can’t stop the countdown. ”

After saying that, Yang Kuifeng could not help but look at the campfire in front of him. Jiang Cheng immediately understood. He hurriedly made a hand seal and took out a piece of roast meat. “I’ve made a piece. Brother, try it.”

“Let the girls eat first. I’m not in a hurry.” Yang Kuifeng said politely.

“It’s okay. They can wait a little longer. Anyway, they’ve already eaten my food, so there’s no hurry.” Jiang Cheng laughed.

“I’ll dig in then.” Yang Kuifeng took it eagerly and took a bite. The next moment, he was stunned and completely forgot to chew.

Jiang Cheng laughed in his heart. ‘Sure enough, although the taste of the food cooked with the ingredients I collected is not bad, it can’t be better than the one cooked using Green-grade campfire.’ He remembered when he first ate it, even he was shocked.

“Bro, are you alright?” Jiang Cheng asked hypocritically.

“Ah…Oh, I’m fine. I’m fine.” Yang Kuifeng came back to his senses and swallowed the food in his mouth. He was shocked. “Hey, your food preparation method … I feel that this food was created to satisfy human taste buds. I love food and I’m actually very picky. However, I can’t find any flaws in your roast meat.”

“You flatter me,” Jiang Cheng said humbly.

“With your ability, if you come to our shelter, you will be worshipped. There are a lot of foodies in our shelter. They are even more picky than me.” Yang Kuifeng exclaimed, “It’s a pity that I’m just a small security guard and don’t have any the actual authority. Otherwise, I’ll think of a way to get you a place in the shelter. That way, you can eat this kind of food every day.”

‘The people wandering in the wilderness are eating corpses, wolf dung, cow dung, tree bark, and grass roots, but you guys are still picky for food.’ Although these thoughts flashed through Jiang Cheng’s mind, he resignedly said, “Unfortunately, my ability consumes a lot of Evonergy. Usually, I prepare my meal in a much simpler way. As long as it’s edible, it’s fine. The Wildlings don’t have the right to be picky. It was only because I was entertaining you this time that I started making it seriously.”

Yang Kuifeng was a little overwhelmed. “Then I’ve really taken advantage of you.” He then asked, “Do you have anything special you need? If you want to trade, I have the authority to give you the best price.”

Jiang Cheng thought, ‘This is my chance to gain an advantage. People in shelters always like to return favors.’

Jiang Cheng rejoiced in his heart. He mused for a moment and said, “Could you sell your water synthesis method?”

Yang Kuifeng was speechless. “The method of synthesizing water is not difficult, but it is not easy either. You could only do it if you were very knowledgeable. To produce elemental water is much more difficult to synthesize than food. At the moment, we only have one assembly line. We really can’t sell that. To be honest, you can’t afford it. ”

Jiang Cheng was speechless. He cursed inwardly. ‘If I was that knowledgeable, I would have sent you flying.’ He then said with a smile, “I’m not that ambitious. I just want to ask if that method can be popularized.”

Jiang Cheng was thinking if it could be popularized, perhaps there would not be too many people dying in the wilderness, and he would not need to travel around.

“I’m not sure about that.” Yang Kuifeng shook his head. ” Although I’m from the shelter, I’m just a security guard. ”

Jiang Cheng nodded in understanding and said, “Then, do you have any long-range weapons that I can use? I can afford it. It’s best if it’s powerful and can cause damage to Evolvers. You know that although I’m an Evolver, I can’t fly. If I encounter a vicious bird or something, it’ll be very troublesome.”

“Ordinary firearms will do…” Yang Kuifeng paused. ” Oh, you’re an Evolver. You don’t need to use a gun. Even a Rank-2 Evolver can ignore sniper rifles. ”

As he spoke, he subconsciously bit on the roast meat and thought seriously, “Speaking of which, Dr. Yang made a small gadget before. I’m not sure if you can use it.”

“What is it?” Jiang Cheng revealed a look of anticipation.
