The System notified Wu Yan when the red veins dissipated. This notification was followed by another notification.
“Obtained B Grade equipment ‘Fraxinus'”
“Wait, what?! It’s a gold armament right off the bat?”
Wu Yan is flabbergasted. He asked the System if there was a mistake.
“I thought normal items are turned into D grade Noble Phantasms?”
Wu Yan’s question must have sounded like he’s questioning the System’s ability because the System responded immediately.
“Fraxinus’s ability and specifications greatly exceed that of normal items, due to Knight Of Owner’s effect, the System adjusted the rating of Fraxinus based on its upgraded specifications and abilities.”
Fraxinus is already a flying fortress before being touched by Wu Yan’s knight of Owner. The airship had high tech facilities, it also had cloaking capabilities and teleporting abilities. Moreover, the arsenal it came equipped with is enough to fight spirits and AST battalions. As a critical asset of the Ratatoskr foundation, it’s only natural that Fraxinus is so decked out.
Knight of Owner retains the original grade of equipment that had higher than grade D rating. If the arsenal and the ship had capabilities higher than Grade D, it’s kept at that level after turning into a Noble Phantasm.
AST’s equipment allowed humans to fight on par with spirits, this equipment had to be better than guns to fight spirits properly. A rating above Grade D does seem reasonable to him.
Furthermore, the aggregate whole is larger than the sum of its parts in this case, imagine integrating all the enhanced artillery on the ship into a working unit.
In other words, Wu Yan got his hands on a fortress that can rival his current Gate of Babylon.
“Well, I will be damned…”
Wu Yan is very happy with the results.
“I wonder if this is the true reward of Quest 3, I need to start complimenting the System.”
Luckily for him, the System didn’t pick up his sarcasm. If it did, Wu Yan would probably get what’s coming for him in the future.
He touched the dashboard and he can feel a distinct connection with the airship. It’s telling him he can operate the ship in any manner he wishes by just thinking about it.
He closed his eyes and he started scrutinizing the information about Fraxinus. After digesting mountains of information about the airship he knew why the System gave the airship a rating of B grade equipment.
In close-quarter combat, this airship might as well be a decoration. However, when deployed in a large enough battlefield, this airship could probably rip Academy City a metaphorical new arsehole, assuming Aleister and The Dragon don’t interfere.
“This is really a pleasant surprise, Kotori…”
Wu Yan shook his head while smiling. He resisted the urge to go back home and lewd Kotori. Jumping down from the control platform, he exited the room.
“Now, this is where it gets interesting…”
Outside Fraxinus, way above the city, a figure floated in front of Fraxinus.
Wu Yan can vaguely see an iridescent glow around Fraxinus, this is probably the cloaking technology that made it invisible to everyone else. He can see this glow because Fraxinus is now his object and he is the airship’s master.
He pointed at the airship and a ripple in space formed around his finger.
The ripples became wider and wider until it’s large enough to swallow the airship. He swung his arm as if ordering the airship to enter the portal. The large airship threatened to destroy the portal as it entered. Finally, after closing the portal, Wu Yan has successfully stored Fraxinus. Quest 3 is now complete.
“Quest 3 completed.”
