Angele thought for a while on the sofa before he stood up and walked upstairs.
He entered the study glancing through the bookshelf as his brows knitted.
“It’s a problem.” Angele did not grab anything from the bookshelf.
He had stored all the wizard books he borrowed from Ivan’s family on the shelf. Angele would be returning the books and asking for new ones after he had absorbed all the knowledge. However, none of them was related to the Liquid stage wizards.
The biggest difference between a Gas stage wizard and a Liquid stage wizard was that a Liquid stage wizard could use various rituals to modify their own body. If a wizard could advance to Liquid or above, he would be able to deal with a large number of mortals easily. With or without activating their forcefield, even Grand Knights would no longer be considered as threats.
The modifications done on the body would greatly increase their attributes, just like the dark wizard Angele killed on the ship. However, to perform those rituals, basic Liquid stage knowledge was required. Angele was having trouble with obtaining all those techniques that were related to body modification.
Angele walked to the table and sat down.
‘Not only the Liquid stage knowledge, I need the basic knowledge from the rank 2 wizards as well. The body modification techniques can be easily completed by rank 2 wizards. The problem is, I don’t even have any of them.’ Angele grabbed the white feather pen and span it several times.
‘Zero, check my body condition.’ Angele ordered.
‘Scanning your body…’
‘Angele Rio. Strength 3.9. Agility 5.5. Stamina 8.2. Mentality 43.1. Mana 32. Genetic limit reached. Healthy.’
The Strength and Agility stats had a small increase. Angele was quite surprised to see his Stamina increased by two. Mentality recovery was within expectation.
He stayed in the study for a while and wrote some notes. Suddenly, he heard something that sounded like snakes moving before leaving for the basement.
Angele stood up and walked to the bookshelf. He then took out a bronze telescope from a white wooden box on the bottom of the shelf. It was the source of the noise.
He carefully pulled the door on the telescope open. There was a small black magic stone inside and it seemed like there was not much energy left.
Angele replaced the magic stone with a new one and threw the telescope in the air.
The telescope floated in front of his face. A ray of white light shot out of the glass and illuminated the floor.
A lady with black hair slowly walked into the light and stood in front of Angele, she was wearing a white robe.
“What happened? Isabel?” Angele looked at the lady and asked.
“There’s one thing I need to let you know. My grandmother is keeping an eye on you. Be careful,” Isabel stared at Angele for a while and finally spoke.
“Sure. I’ll be more cautious from now on. Thanks.”
Angele lowered his head. He did not have any idea on how to continue the conversation. The atmosphere in the room was awkward.
“Oh yeah, how’s your progress? Going well?” Angele broke the silence.
“Yeah. I’m doing fine.”
“Umm, thanks for all the resources you sent me by the way.”
“You earned it.”
The awkward silence hit the room again.
Angele opened his mouth but found nothing to say. He was trying hard to break the ice.
“Just let me know if you need any other help. You have done a lot for me, so I want to make it fair.” Angele was being honest. The heart of the tree and the Black Rose Oil were part of the trade, but a rare potion formula like Demos’ Water was almost given to Angele for free.
He had not yet demonstrated his potion skills to Wisp’s organization, and there was no other way that he could acquire a formula like Demos’ Water.
Angele advanced to the Liquid stage in his mid-twenties without rare potions and materials. It should have been impossible for him to accomplish such a great achievement. Most of the other wizards would spend more than a hundred years to collect various materials to increase their mentality.
“I’m fine.” Isabel’s answer was short.
Angele wanted to say something else but for some reason, he just could not find the right words.
He was not sure if Flan was monitoring the conversation, so he had to keep the conversation short and simple.
“Well, I’ll talk to you later.” He slightly nodded.
Isabel’s image turned into distorted waves and blurred.
Several seconds later, she disappeared and Angele caught the dropping telescope, returning it into the white box.
He then raised his right hand. The nail on his index finger was glowing.
“Isabel, remember, if you need any help, leave me a message using the communication rune. Also, tell me the truth. How’s the rhino blood?” Isabel was still experiencing some trouble with her body. She needed to recover as fast as possible and advance to the Crystal stage.
Isabel responded quickly.
“I’m fine. Don’t worry.”
Angele thought for a while with his brows furrowed. The blue glow on his nail slowly disappeared.
He walked out of the study and went straight into the basement. Angele grabbed some materials and entered the Potions Room.
After about two hours, Angele left the room with a tired expression on his face.
The glass tube in his right hand had some dark purple liquid inside. In his left hand, there were several test tubes with colorful nutritious water.
The nutritious water could be purchased in the market and it was used to restore energy. It was not considered a potion since the liquid was just extracts of nutritious food.
He tied all the glass tubes together and sealed them in a box. Angele left the basement and asked Nancy to give the box to Rossi so he could deliver the item to Isabel.
The purple liquid was a special potion that had a similar effect to that of the rhino blood, but it was much stronger. Angele thought Isabel needed something just like that. Although it was hard to concoct and the progress was not so smooth, he still managed to concoct one serving for her. After talking to Isabel, he was certain that she needed something that was much stronger than the stabilized rhino blood.
Angele was grateful for what Isabel did for him, thus he wanted to show his gratitude.
He left a message to Isabel after giving the box to Nancy, asking her to pay attention to the purple potion. Angele then entered the spell room and closed the door.
Angele took a deep breath and stood in the center of the room. He waved his right hand and three silver scars appeared on his face.
A silver metal tentacle was shot out of his finger and floated in the air.
‘Zero, monitor the changes happening to my body,’ he ordered.
‘Monitoring…’ The blue light dots flashed in front of his eyes.
Angele quickly conjured a two-meter-long silver crossguard sword and it floated above his palm.
The tip of the sword was wider than usual and the blade was still slim. It was a special design that was created by Angele.
He pointed forward without touching the handle of the sword.
The sword soared through the air and the noise made his ears ache.
The blade drew a silver arc in the air and stabbed into the wall on the opposite side.
The sword was longer than Angele’s height and it was so sharp that it could cut the hard stone wall open.
‘Metal Mastery: Burst damage doubled. Average physical damage, 35 degrees. Forcefield doubled. It can now block more than 47 degrees of damage.’
Zero finished the calculation quickly.
“So, the average damage has reduced but the maximum damage has increased. It’s nowhere near the damage the heart bombs can do, but I can control it much better.’
Angele continued the test.
He did not notice any significant change in the casting speed after advancing to the Liquid stage, but it seemed like the power of his spells improved as he had higher mentality than before. Angele could also control the energy flow better, and everything was now more efficient.
Without the heart bomb, he could do about 40 degrees of physical damage if he tried to focus his attack at a single point. After the spell buffs and enchantment, the power could still be increased. Angele could save in energy bombs if he was fully prepared for the incoming fight.
After all the tests were done, Angele changed his clothes to a white-brown tight swordsman’s suit. It would help him act faster when in the forest.
A patrolling Knight walked to him after seeing Angele stepping out of the door. The man had large ears and stout body, and his arms were of the same size as his legs. It was a dwarf Knight with a long white beard that was tied up like braids.
“Master Green, are you leaving? You want me to go with you?” The dwarf’s name was Surry, one of the mercenaries that came to Nola not so long ago. He was a top-level Knight. The forest dwarfs were born with magic resistance and they could fight low-rank wizard apprentices.
One of the Knights Angele hired left, and he found the dwarf Knight to replace that guy.
Angele glanced around.
“Where are the others?”
“Master, they…umm…” Surry hesitated, “They’re hunting while patrolling the surrounding area.”
Angele nodded. “Fine, come with me then.”
“Sure.” Surry nodded as well.
Angele recalled the location of wizard Shiva. He took out the invitation letter and double-checked the energy wave Shiva left on it.
