‘There’s still a long way to go and you have so many things to do.’
‘I understand.’ Angele nodded slightly and reached for the last material.
The red electric bars on the cage turned into a red rune and disappeared.
It looked like a bunch of purple grapes.
Angele carefully lifted the grapes up and tapped on a grape slightly.
The grape was absorbed by his finger and only the dried skin was left.
‘The Thousand Eye Fruit will cure your body. Consume one each day. You will feel better after one month and you will fully recover in a year,’ Henn said. ‘Make sure you’re well rested before doing anything else. You do not want the consequences to happen.’
‘I understand.’ Angele nodded.
‘Alright, go meditate now. Although you have an advanced meditation technique, it will still take some time for your mind and body to get used to it. Everything will be better in half a year. I’ll have some rest now.’ It seemed Henn was exhausted after watching Angele advance to the next stage.
‘Sure, go have some rest. I can do the rest myself,’ Angele responded.
Angele stood beside the table and put down the grapes, starting to think afterward.
After several minutes, he gave Zero an order.
‘Check my condition.’
A large number of blue light dots flashed in front of his eyes as the chip reported back.
‘Task created, checking…’
About half minutes later, the results were shown in his sight.
‘Angele Rio, Strength 8.0, Agility 7.7, Stamina 15.2, Mentality 75.1, Mana 57.2. Genetic limitation reached.’
Angele’s brows furrowed.
‘My Mentality increased to 75 points yet my mana is lower than 60 points…Why is that? Can you analyze it for me?’
Rows of blue data were being refreshed in his sight every second. It almost looked like a flowing waterfall.
After about ten minutes, the data slowly stopped.
Angele checked all the information and finally understood what had happened. If the mentality was not stabilized, his Mana would never increase.
‘Show me my all the information regarding my energy variations. I want to create new battle plans.’ Angele ordered as his eyes blinked.
The energy variation information would tell Angele about his affinity with the different energy particles.
Angele’s body was affected by the ring from Ramsoda. Mainly due to that reason, he had high affinity with Fire and Wind particles. Most of the spells he mastered and modified at the moment were in those two categories.
However, it seemed the ancient bloodline was modifying his body slowly. He needed to recheck his affinity with the energy particles so that he could choose the best level 2 spell for him.
It only took several minutes for Zero to report back.
A bar chart floated in front of Angele’s eyes.
The energy particle element that had the highest affinity with Angele was displayed on the leftmost part and the weakest one was displayed on the rightmost part.
The glowing red bar representing the Fire energy particles was the longest.
The second one was the Metal energy particles and the bar was silver.
The third one was the Illusion energy particles and the bar was translucent.
The last one was green which represented the Wind energy particles.
Angele hesitated for several seconds and started thinking.
‘It seems that the changes made by the bloodline do not impact my affinity with certain energy particles…The illusion and metal energy particle affinity are new but they’re still weaker than the fire affinity.’
The wind affinity came from the ring, but it seemed that he was born with fire affinity and the strongest spell he could cast was in the Fire category.
‘So the Mask of Black Wing will be able to buff my spells from time to time, and as an advanced meditation technique, it can help me increase my affinity with one of the four energy particles.’
Angele had already noticed where the problem lay.
The forcefield from the Metal Mastery could help him both defensively and offensively during a battle. He thought that this Talent Spell was powerful but using it was hard in a practical sense. The spells that focused on either offense or defense were stronger than the forcefield he had.
The metal skills only helped him initiate a battle and protect his body. The illusion signet was the deciding factor in the outcome of the battles.
Angele did not think too much about the affinity with the energy particles but then the situation changed.
He was not born with the metal affinity but came from the Metal Mastery. It seemed like the power of the forcefield was not as strong as he had initially thought but Zero had modified the Talent Spell to make it stronger. Angele wondered if an average Fire spell would help him more in a fight.
‘Should I increase my fire affinity and stamina using the advanced meditation technique instead?’ Angele rubbed his chin and pursed his lips.
He finally made up his mind after thinking for half an hour. He decided to increase his affinity with the Fire energy particles.
Angele had made the wrong decision while choosing the Talent Spell before, so he decided to be more prudent this time.
He checked the defensive matrix around the house and returned to the center of the potions room.
Angele sat on the floor with his legs crossed and started meditating.
Time flew past.
One hour later.
A thin layer of black smoke appeared on Angele’s face.
The black smoke was moving around, releasing a distorted energy wave.
The smoke became increasingly thicker as time passed.
It then turned into a solidified black mask and covered Angele’s face.
The mask was simple; there was no complicated pattern or rune painted on it.
Another half an hour passed.
Suddenly, a red light dot appeared between his eyebrows.
The red dot turned into a small fireball and it was surrounded by a red glow.
The fire extinguished by itself after about ten minutes.
The black mask broke into countless pieces and slid down Angele’s face.
The broken mask turned into black smoke and vanished into the air before it hit the floor.
Angele opened his eyes and raised his right arm, chanting the incantation of the Lesser Fireball slowly.
Countless red light dots gathered on Angele’s palm like fireflies.
A ball of fire was formed quickly.
The fireball had the size of a human’s head. Several seconds later, the fireball shrank and turned into a walnut-sized red bead floating above the center of Angeles’ right palm.
Angele looked at the modified Lesser Fireball and scanned it using the biochip.
The spell could deal around 40 degrees of damage, but it had already reached its limit.
There was only so much a level 1 spell could do.
However, the amount of damage the spell could deal was increased to 50 degrees after the meditation.
‘So this is the result of increasing my fire affinity?’ Angele finished the analysis and the blue light dots vanished into the air.
‘What about level 2 spells? I’m at the Crystal stage right now. I can learn one level 2 spell, but I don’t have any spell models in my possession. Seems like I must acquire one from the Dark Wizard Tower or from Henn.’ Angele blinked his eyes.
The fire bead turned into countless red light dots and disappeared into the air. The temperature in the room was increased by several degrees Celsius.
‘Do you really think that’s all the black mask can do?’ Henn’s voice echoed in his ears.
‘I thought you were going to have a good rest.’ Angele was surprised.
Henn sneered. ‘I told you already that the Mask of Black Wing is a great advanced meditation technique. This technique has five stages. You have just started the first stage. When you actually complete the first stage, you will acquire a special forcefield just like the one from your Talent Spell, and you can increase an energy affinity again. The next four stages are the same. You’ll be able to increase the affinity of your choice twice at each stage. The higher the stage you’re trained in this meditation technique, the higher your selected affinity will be increased.’
Angele was getting confused.
‘How is that even possible? This advanced meditation technique exceeds my expectation a whole lot now…’ he responded.
‘…You missed the point,’ Henn explained. ‘You’ll reach rank 3 if you can complete the third stage in 300 years and you’ll already be considered a genius. Kid, you need a high mentality level to train in advanced meditation techniques and the technique might increase your chance of advancing to the next rank. That’s the reason why there are more wizards in the central continent than the other areas. The best advanced meditation technique could increase the chance by half!’
‘What? Only half?’
‘What do you know…? The higher a wizard’s rank is, the harder the progression will be. If you fail to advance to the next rank, it will cost you a huge amount of resources to fix your body. Arisma is assisting Stigma right now but I think her meditation technique is at the same level to the one I have given you, unless they decided to use some special methods…But there will be side effects.’
Angele scrunched up his forehead.
‘So you’re saying that the advanced meditation technique will help a wizard progress to the next rank and that’s how wizards in the central continent advance?’
‘Yeah, you’re correct.’ Henn confirmed Angele’s assumption. ‘Wizards in other regions have to waste a significant number of resources but we have a clear direction. That’s the biggest difference.’
