After hearing Elder Qin’s words, the candidates below became more confident as they looked at each other.
The content of the Miracle Healer Academy’s assessment would change every year, but 1 thing wouldn’t change was that there would inevitably be a round of assessments that needed to be conducted in groups.
Therefore, before these candidates came to participate in the assessment, many of them had already made good connections with several families and sects to form a team so as to increase their chance of passing the assessment.
But then, Elder Qin’s words broke their beautiful illusions.
“However, the difference between this year and previous years is that the grouping will be determined through a draw lot.”
As soon as this remark came out, the square suddenly burst into commotion.
Those who had already decided to form a team, especially those candidates who were planning to pass the assessment, were disheartened. Grouping through draw lot meant there was a high chance of people burdening the group.
Of course, there were also people who were delighted. Those, who were not strong and did not have the support of the family or sect behind them, originally thought that they could only work alone in the second round of assessment, but the decision of drawing lots was equivalent to giving them a high chance of relying on the better candidates. The chance for them to pass the assessment was naturally greater. How could they not be happy?
However, after the chatters, everyone’s eyes couldn’t help but fall on Xi Yue.
Everyone’s eyes were full of disgust and contempt. They couldn’t wait to kick this guy who only was only at the Foundation Establishment stage from the list of passing the assessment.
Then someone said — “Whoever groups with Xi Yue really has extremely bad luck!” After that, there was a burst of lively discussion in the crowd.
“How? My family has talked to Zhu Zhengwei before to let him assist me this time. He has the thunder spiritual root and is at the Gold Core Stage, which is a strong combat power. With him, I have higher chance of being selected. Now, I’m definitely hopeless!”
“Yeah! In order for me to team up with the strong, my family also paid a lot of magic weapons and medicinal pills. Now those are all in vain.”
“But no matter who you get, it isn’t so hopeless as getting Xi Yue in your team, right? With him, I guess the Gold Core Stage will be dragged to death!”
“This kind of person is really shameless. He obviously doesn’t have enough strength, but he still wanted to participate in the assessment. He can’t pass it, but he still wants to drag down the others. Doesn’t he feel embarrassed?”
“He just scored 503 points on the written assessment. Why can’t he get wrong for a few more points? Just let him be eliminated in the first round. Now, he is just a curse to everyone and himself!”
“Shhhh, keep your voice down, be careful that he hears it.”
“Hmph, so what if he hears it? Could he still beat me, he dares?”
From the beginning of complaining about the draw lot rules to almost everyone expressed their disgust on Hexi.
If she had a bad psychological quality, she would have quit, but she just stood there listening to the boy in green clothes introducing the cautions and taboos when participating in the group assessment.
The boy in green clothes and Elder Qin were more calm as if they hadn’t heard the comments from the people below at all. They just announced the various rules.
“… During the assessment, all the invigilators will watch your every move through the nine turn recording stone. In the end, your assessment results in the second level will be comprehensively considered based on both team and individual performance.”
