“Four?” After Feng Luo spoke, Sister Rui could not hide the look of shock that appeared on her face.
Feng Luo nodded and said, “Yes, four. Three Quasi-Boss pet biochips and one Boss pet biochip.”
“Three Quasi-Boss chips, but didn’t they say on the forum that you only have two…?” Sister Rui stared at Feng Luo with her light blue eyes, remember, Sister Rui is of mixed race. 
“I was lucky and got one more Quasi-Boss biochip at the end,” Feng Luo answered.
The North City Sniper player’s Quasi-Boss biochip was probably obtained from killing a member of the Rebel Army camp, who probably obtained the chip while clearing the other bases.
After all, when the Rebel Army was clearing the other bases, some Quasi-Boss biochips were bound to have dropped and obtained by some players.
From the shocking number of battle loot that appeared after killing the Sniper, one could tell how many people the Sniper had already killed because there was a Quasi-Boss biochip in his possession.
However, in the end, greed got to this North City Sniper. He wanted to take the Boss biochip for himself and he paid a very heavy price when he made it easy for Feng Luo to turn the tables in his favor.
Nonetheless, it was clear that the Sniper did not speak up about the situation, as none of the players on the forum knew that Feng Luo had another Quasi-Boss pet biochip in his possession.
“Since it’s like this, with three Quasi-Boss biochips… You have half of the spoils from this mission with you, and this is not including the Boss biochip that you have. Little Feng, are you sure you want to also auction off this Boss biochip? If it’s the finale, the three Quasi-Boss biochips are already more than enough.” Sister Rui suddenly realized, but she continued to stare suspiciously at Feng Luo. “Aren’t you reserving the Boss biochip for yourself? This is the first Boss-Grade pet biochip in War, after all.”
“No, I won’t use it. I don’t need this chip,” Feng Luo said and shook his head.
Feng Luo’s words hinted at this information, and naturally, Sister Rui immediately understood and reacted.
She couldn’t help but breathe in lightly before asking a follow-up question, “Little Feng, does this mean that the speculations on the forum are real? That your pet is already Boss-Grade?”
“Yes, it is from the Beetle Temple that we encountered back when we took part in Lu Conglomerate’s ruin exploration mission…” Feng Luo said with a smile and nodded his head.
“Right… Your luck is quite something. To have a Boss-Grade pet… and to keep a low profile that no one noticed and no one can confirm, even now… That’s just…” After hearing Feng Luo’s brief explanation, Sister Rui could only shake her head and laugh.
“This means that the Boss biochip’s price might not be as shocking as one would imagine,” Sister Rui said.
Concerning potential clients wanting to purchase this Boss biochip, apart from it being a Boss-Grade pet biochip, but the title of being “The First” was also one of the important reasons that it was so coveted by many.
At the moment, if they knew that they couldn’t get the title of being the first to own the first Boss Grade pet in War, even after buying this biochip through the auction, some might not even bother trying to get it anymore.
“Yes, that might affect it somewhat. However, 24K’s situation is unique. Average players aren’t able to detect its grade, as long as I don’t admit to it before the auction, then the effects won’t be felt. Besides, even if 24K’s grade is discovered, that won’t be too much of a problem. This Boss-Grade pet biochip can still be promoted as the first Boss-Grade biochip.” Feng Luo smiled and suggested an idea. “I can say that it was upgraded and evolved to Boss-Grade through its cultivation and growth. After all, some people have already evolved their pet to the Quasi-Boss Grade. That explanation of evolving my pet to the Boss Grade will work.”
“That’s a plausible idea,” Sister Rui said with a smile.
Even Sister Rui was looking forward to finding out how much the “First Boss-Grade Pet Biochip in War” would fetch in an auction.
Without a shred of doubt, this pet biochip was going to break the record for the single most expensive item in the entire game. The Huan Yu Company was also hoping to push the price even higher, as much as they could.
“When you went to the abandoned ruin, the final item at Starry Sky’s auction, the Quasi-Boss biochip, was sold at 950 million credits. This is the result of them conducting the auction hastily even when it was certain that you lot were guaranteed to obtain Quasi-Boss Grade biochips in the exploration mission. As a result of that, many VIP clients used that as a chance to observe rather than partake in the bidding. Otherwise, the price would be higher. It might even break the record of the first Legendary-Grade item that we auctioned last time,” Sister Rui said suddenly.
“950 million? That is quite a good price.” Feng Luo was rather surprised after hearing the amount.
In reality, for many of the interplanetary large conglomerates of the Galactic Era, expenses under 100 million Star Coins were not even worth mentioning because this was only a game and the pet biochips were things that would ultimately depreciate. A price near one billion was quite terrifying.
Most importantly, if a Quasi-Boss Grade biochip costs almost one billion credits, then what about the price for a Boss-Grade biochip?
“Five billion. Half a month ago, Starry Sky Company offered the price of five billion credits to purchase the first Boss biochip. Of course, considering the current situation, that price is low. The auction price will certainly be higher,” Sister Rui said, looking at Feng Luo.
She was saying this to let Feng Luo know that Starry Sky’s offer was quite attractive. If it were an average player, they might go the safe route and directly sell the chip to the Starry Sky Company and get the 500 Star Coins in their pocket directly.
Sister Rui revealed this piece of info to Feng Luo because she wanted to let him know that she was 100% confident that the Boss biochip would fetch more than five billion credits, equivalent to 500 million Star Coins.
“Five billion, huh? That’s a really big number,” Feng Luo lamented.
For a person whose livelihood was to kill daily, an asset of over 100 million was something that was completely out of reach. However, right now, in War, a game that was had zero hazards that once-upon-a-time pipedream was now almost within his reach, and it has only been a few short months.
The power of an all-nation, all-citizen, game to create wealth was so strong that he was very surprised.
“But this Boss biochip isn’t entirely mine. During the auction, I’ll have to trouble you to help me prepare a larger suite room,” Feng Luo said to Sister Rui after suddenly remembering that fact.
To be precise, the Boss-Grade pet biochip did not belong solely to him. It was something that belonged to all eight other people who entered the main central base.
Since Feng Luo’s losses suffered and his overall contribution to getting that biochip was the absolute highest amongst the group, the biochip was left with him to sell. The other seven players agreed to leave it to him to handle things.
In truth, concerning the distribution of the spoils for the Boss biochip, the Nine-Star Guild higher-ups even had a conflict of their own.
The item was just too valuable. For the Nine-Star Guild, it was tough to let it go. Some of them believed that they should get 50% of the profit related to the chip while some believed it should be 90%. However, Zi Wei’s opinion was that they should follow their previous agreement, that stated to all who participated in the mission that apart from the core equipment, all other battle drops and spoils would belong to the person who obtained it. The Nine-Star Guild would keep their promise, no matter how much it pained them.
Both sides kept arguing and in the end, it was the quiet Sword Ki Long River who stood up and mentioned that if not for Feng Luo and a few others who stepped up to protect the core device at the end of the mission, the Nine-Star Guild might have failed the mission altogether.
After this was brought up, the others from Nine-Star Guild could no longer keep up their argument.
As such, the final decision was that Feng Luo had full authority on how the biochip should be handled.
 I’m not sure if that part should be kept or not.
