He glanced at the other wizards. The golden flames were created using pure Fire energy particles and had no special effects. Most of the strong wizards could accomplish that.
However, Angele released more energy particles than he needed intentionally. After the energy particles contacted the other wizards’ bodies, he could use the biochip to analyze their power levels.
Justin and Monteria had the same power level as Viss.
Miray had the same power level as Justin; however, Aria and the other female wizard were mid-level rank 4 wizards. They were much weaker than top-level wizards like Justin and Monteria.
Angele did not take their trump cards into consideration as he had no idea what they were carrying.
He lowered his hand and took one step back. “It’s weird. The vine’s resistance is ridiculously high.”
The other wizards all did their tests and they all had serious expressions on the faces.
Monteria was holding a purple dagger and still trying to engrave something onto the surface of the vine.
“Wait a minute, I’m still working on the fire. My dagger was infused with mixed dragon blood and it can deal poison damage,” she explained in Metia.
She kept engraving on the surface of the vine, but nothing happened.
Monteria remained calm. She put the purple dagger away and took out a wavy red dagger with a golden handle from the pouch. She started engraving on the vine again.
“This one is infused with 1263 types of spices using a special technique. Also, it was kept in a volcano frog’s body for around 90 years. My strength will be greatly increased when I’m holding the dagger in my hand.”
The wizards around were surprised after hearing these words. The golden dagger had to be a rare weapon made of special materials.
Green dust dropped to the ground—the dagger successfully scratched the surface of the vine.
“Finally. My strength is equal to the strength of 30 adult men combined with the dagger’s buff.” Monteria collected the dust using a small test tube and put it into her pouch.
Her pouch was also made with special material. The pouch was half a meter long, its size was relatively large and it could hold a lot of items.
“The strength of 30 adult men? If you can utilize the power of the dagger, you’ll have a similar strength level of a rank 4 wizard with body modification spells,” Aria interrupted.
Angele stepped forward, he was interested in the dagger. “I modified my body and I also have the strength of 30 adult men, but the only thing you need is a dagger. Is there a chance that you can sell the dagger to me? I’m interested.”
He was not completely lying, Angele’s body was strengthened due to the true form; however, in the wizard world, his strength was capped at around 30 points.
When stamina was not taken into the count, the buff of the dagger helped Monteria reach the same strength level as Angele, but the other mid-level rank 4 wizards that had similar strength levels with body modification techniques might be slightly stronger than Angele or Monteria.
“Sorry, I don’t think I’ll ever sell it, and I assume your development is not focused on the strength.” Monteria smiled. “I’ve seen a rank 4 wizard that focused on strength smash the ground using his fist. He had the strength of 45 adult men.”
Angele smiled but did not respond.
“Let’s make a campfire and study the vine. We’ll be climbing for a while if we want to reach the top.” Justin pointed at the ground and created a ball of fire. Dried branches appeared under the fireball and became fuel for the campfire.
Justin stopped controlling the fireball and sat down by the campfire.
They remained silent after testing the vine. They sat around the campfire and started meditating.
Angele noticed that Miray and Aria looked concerned when he said he had the strength of 30 adult males. It seemed like they thought Angele was lying.
Angele sat by the campfire and made it look like that he was meditating.
‘Zero, check my current condition.’
‘Analyzing… Attributes slightly increased… Adjusting…’
‘Completed. Here are your current attributes.’
‘Angele Fenrir Rio: Strength 32.2, Agility 11.5, Stamina 28.0, Mentality 344.8, Mana 310.2. Gene limit not reached. Status: Unknown.’
‘So, my strength increased by 2, but my agility is still the same. My mentality is now over 300, which means Nightmare Realm is getting closer. I have the heat aura but I don’t have the realm power. If the realm power of Nightmare Realm can handle the realm power of the wizard world, my stamina and strength will increase by at least 20 points,’ Angele thought. ‘My physical power will be the same as a strong rank 4 wizard even with the realm power and the heat aura. My high attributes are no longer an advantage in battles against top-level rank 4 wizards.
‘If I can infuse my body with light… I can only do it twice before I faint even with my high mentality. My right arm will be turned into the light form and I can hit one target within 100 meters. However, if my opponents underestimate my power, I’ll be able to eliminate two strong enemies. Also, I have Becky…’
With the trump cards, Angele had the same power level as Fiona and was slightly weaker than Becky when he fought with her. Becky attacked Angele’s illusion because she failed to calm down during the battle. The woman would not be captured so easily under normal circumstances.
If Angele let Becky control her own body, she would have the same power level as Fiona, but some of her abilities would still be restricted.
‘In conclusion, Aria is as strong as me. Without the realm power and trump cards, I’m just a mid-level rank 4 wizard,’ Angele thought.
The wizards sat around the campfire and remained silent. The fire was the only thing making noise. There was green smoke rising into the air.
Suddenly, an intense fragrance that smelled like grapes permeated the air.
The wizards all looked at the source of the fragrance.
Aria was pouring some translucent liquid on her palm from a purple bottle. Her brow furrowed as she noticed that the wizards were staring at her.
“It’s just perfume, what’s the problem?”
“Nothing.” Miray smiled and closed his eyes again.
The other also closed their eyes.
It was getting dark outside and the fire was almost extinguished.
Angele opened his eyes and picked up a dried branch, he started poking the campfire.
Suddenly, he noticed that something was off.
The smoke from the fire was no longer rising to the air, it turned into a small ball above the campfire.
The smoke ball turned into the head of a wolf and tried to bite Angele’s neck.
The wolf head was about one meter wide, it charged to Angele but was blocked by an invisible barrier.
Angele’s face turned pale, he blocked the attack but was still blown away by the impact.
The wolf head decided to attack other wizards after its attack was blocked.
Three enormous shadows appeared in the sky, each about ten meters long. The shadows were brightened up by the light from the fire and Angele noticed that the shadows were actually three black dragons.
The mouths of the dragons looked like tentacles of octopuses, they were trying to grab the wizards using their tentacles.
Angele had no time to check other wizards’ condition, he took a deep breath as one of the dragons charged at him.
The wings and the mouth of the dragon filled up Angele’s sight.
“Becky!” he shouted and a white shadow appeared in front of him, charging toward the octopus dragon.
The white shadow hit the dragon’s head; however, it seemed like there was an invisible barrier between the two and they both hesitated.
Angele got the chance and disappeared into a ball of fire. He decided to keep some distance from the dragon.
It sounded like clothes being ripped apart. Becky’s left arm was bitten off by the dragon and swallowed right away.
The woman’s eyes rolled up and she fainted.
Angele quickly caught the woman. He noticed that her body was a mess and her white armor was soaked in blood.
He shook his head as he looked at the woman who fainted.
“Sorry, I had no choice,” he muttered. Angele looked at the octopus dragon, it seemed like the dragon lost its balance after the impact.
“It’s great that I had a servant,” he said. Angele thought he made a right decision.
Becky slowly woke up, she did not hear Angele’s apology but she heard the second sentence Angele said. She was enraged by his words.
They had no time to argue as the dragon charged at them again. Angele’s body was restricted by an invisible force field as the humongous shadow was right above his head.
“Becky! Now!” Angele shouted and used Becky’s body to block the force field.
Becky noticed that the disgusting tentacles were in front of her face again after she woke up.
“I’ll kill you sooner or later!” she shouted like crazy.
Angele quickly escaped the force field and raised his right hand. A large stone pillar penetrated the dragon’s stomach and blew the dragon away.
He chanted the incantation and created two meters tall lava ball when the dragon was recovering.
The cracks on the surface of the lava ball were filled up with golden lava, its temperature extremely high.
The area around Angele was smoking and the stones all turned red. The smaller stones pieces exploded and turned into dust.
“Go now.” Angele pushed the lava ball forward.
The lava ball disappeared into the air.
Red light struck into the air as the ball exploded. However, the dragon was not eliminated by the explosion. The dragon’s skin was slightly damaged and Angele could see the burnt marks on it.
‘The lava ball is upgraded with my rank 4 power but it’s only good for an area attack.’ Angele’s brow furrowed, he noticed that a similar force field appeared on the left.
The woman blocked the force field again, but her injured body could barely handle the impact. She was blown away again.
Justin witnessed the scene and his face twitched. It seemed like he felt sorry for what Angele did to Becky.
“Left!” Angele shouted again.
The woman appeared on his left again but she was blown away right away, leaving a large hole on the ground.
Angele heard that the dragon that attacked Aria was groaning.
That dragon’s wings were damaged. It flew into the air and disappeared into the sky.
The other two dragons retreated as well after the first one disappeared.
Justin finally finished his incantation, it took him around eight seconds to finish the preparations with Monteria protecting him.
His ears increased in length and turned red. Opening his mouth, he released a ray of red light, striking a dragon’s tail.
The dragon groaned again and increased its speed.
The red ray returned into Justin’s mouth and his ears returned to normal.
Part of the dragon’s tail fell to the ground and gray smoke splashed in the air. The tail looked like a large version of a lizard’s tail and was still twitching.
Angele looked at the other wizards. Becky and Angele had trouble fighting the dragon, but the other wizards all successfully defeated the other dragons.
Miray did most of the work as there were still strong energy waves surrounding his hands. The golden electric sparks were slowly disappearing from his palms.
Justin and Monteria revealed their power. They were having a short conversation regarding the battle, it seemed like they were trying to improve their teamwork.
Angele and Becky were surprised by the attack so he had no time to cast spells. Also, Becky could not control her body, so she failed to react as well.
Angele tried his best to dodge the dragon’s attacks and the whole thing ended before he did anything.
Without the heat aura, he had the power level of a mid-level rank 4 wizard, but with the aura and his trump cards, he would be a top-level rank 4 wizard. However, Angele felt that someone was observing the team from the shadows, and he decided not to reveal his true power.
As he expected, no one was observing them anymore after the ambush.
