Chapter 56: Job Change……..Failed
He appeared in a large plaza, but although it was big, it was not very spacious, there were already many players crowding around, often there would be flashes of white light that signified new players arriving from the Beginner Village. On Ye Tian Xie’s left side was a floating white stele……This was the city’s resurrection point.
One of the five main cities of the Lost Continent, Heavenly Stellar City, was the place where Beginners from the Beginner Village would eventually arrive at. To all players this was a fair and identical starting point, because the system chose this Heavenly Stellar City as their starting point for them, and they had no way to travel to any of the main cities.
Ye Tian Xie gave a thought command and his stat panel appeared:

Job Change……Looking at the “None” value for his job stat, Ye Tian Xie decided on his first goal, walking to the easily noticeable NPC characters, it was easy to find out where the Job Change area was with his high Charm value, then he quickly rushed over to the Job Change Temple.
Because of the large player base of the Chinese Server, the Job Change Temple was a very large place, it was as large as two huge soccer fields in the real world. Players that had reached level 10 were all still desperately struggling for the attractive rewards of the Nightmare Level Trial, so there were not many players currently here for a Job Change. The Job Change Temple was divided into seven parts, Ye Tian Xie looked at each one of the symbols, then walked over to the Warrior Job Change area. There was a middle aged man with a long beard sitting relaxed in a large chair.
The «Destiny» world was relatively user friendly, regardless of what the Beginner Job a player chose, it would not affect them in any way when they changed into their official Jobs. For example, a Beginner Warrior did not have to choose the Warrior Job as his Official Job, they could choose to become a Magician, or an Assassin, or any other job…….but this choice had a large difference, only crazy people would choose a different job from their Beginner Job. This was because it would mean that the stat points they added beforehand would go to waste.
“Hello, I want to become a Warrior.” Walking in front of the middle aged man, Ye Tian Xie politely said.
“Ding……As a result of your extraordinary charm, the Warrior Job Change Instructor’s favorability towards you has increased by +20.”
Ye Tian Xie: “…….”
The Warrior Job Change Instructor’s face turned gentle as he stood up, he had a smile on his face as he said, “Very good, young man let me see how your stats look first…..not bad, you’re suited to become a Warrior. The Warrior Job is the strongest job on the Lost Continent, Warriors have the strongest close combat abilities, on the battlefield, we are always at the frontlines of the fight. The Basic Warrior Job can be divided into two kinds based on what type of weapons they use, one is the Spear Warrior with its long range and strong attack power, but it has low attack speed and accuracy, the other is the well balanced Sword Warrior. Now, which type do you want to choose?”
“Sword Warrior.” Ye Tian Xie replied. What kind of weapon was Moment of Destiny? It did not belong in the 18 categories of weapons, in fact it wasn’t even a weapon. But it could be used in the same way as the sword, so Ye Tian Xie was willing to treat it as a sword. But what was worrying was that if the Moment of Destiny did not qualify in any of the weapon categories, then he wouldn’t be able to use the various sword skills of the Sword Warrior Job with the Moment of Destiny.
“Very good, then……” The Warrior Job Change Instructor stood up, he closed his eyes and lifted his hands, in a low voice he said, “I, in the name of the War God, bestow upon you the strength of a Sword Dance Warrior!”
A white light fell from the sky after the Warrior Job Change Instructor finished talking, falling onto Ye Tian Xie, wrapping around him, slowly permeating into his body.
The hands of the Warrior Job Change Instructor fell, but Ye Tian Xie did not hear the prompt of a successful Job Change. Along with it, a strange thing occurred, the light that had integrated into Ye Tian Xie’s body began to slowly leave his body as if something inside of him was repelling it away.
The Warrior Job Change Instructor’s face filled with shock, he looked at Ye Tian Xie with a puzzled look, he pondered for a bit before raising his hands again and saying in a low voice, “I, in the name of the War God, bestow upon you the strength of a Sword Dance Warrior!”
The same white light fell down from the sky, but this time, that white light didn’t even reach Ye Tian Xie’s body before as if it was blown away by a gust of wind, dissipating without a trace.
“This is?” Ye Tian Xie knit his brows as he expressed his doubts.
The Warrior Job Change Instructor’s face turned into a pondering expression, then he raised his head and said, “No need to worry, it’s not as if this hasn’t happened before. What this means, is that your physique is not suitable for becoming a Warrior…..Although it is regrettable, but you can still choose another job. With your current stats, you can also choose to become a Knight.” He used his hand to point out the Job Change area next to the Warrior Job Change area.
His physique wasn’t suitable for becoming a Warrior? Ye Tian Xie was astonished. In his virtual gaming career, he had never encountered an occurrence like this before. Faintly, he began to remember all the strange occurrences that had happened, these strange things that have occurred since he entered the «Destiny» world were all things that should have been impossible.
Why did he fail in acquiring a job in the beginning and not have a single Beginner Job?
And failing to advance to the Warrior Job, was it an accident, or perhaps was it as the Warrior Job Change Instructor said, how “his body was not suitable for becoming a Warrior”?
Ye Tian Xie silently walked away, he moved over to the Knight Job Change area. The Knight Job Change Instructor was a sturdy middle aged man. Ye Tian Xie said as he walked over, “Hello respected instructor, I’d like to become a Knight.”
“Ding……As a result of your extraordinary charm, the Knight Job Change Instructor’s favorability towards you has increased by +20.”
Ye Tian Xie was already numb toward this kind of notification. He even suspected that each time he talked to a NPC for the first time, this prompt would always pop up.
