After finally reaching adept in all his occupational skills, the growth slowed down. Compared to his experience with
Still, even Tored was surprised with Seth
’s growth at first. Even without his cheatsy
It was one evening during the sparring with the ax-wielding dwarf. His
The trigger was
When used in battle it would strengthen the weapon with short bursts of mana during crucial moments such as blocking or swinging the weapon. Thes burst could also be used to activate the item ’s enchantments at that moment. Using the skill optimized for blacksmithing in a battle had taken a lot of time and effort to get used to.
A change appeared starting from level 5. When used on the weapon it would not only strengthen it but also apply something like an energy blade to the weapon. This made the skill once again harder to control. It took Seth several weeks to get used to it, but he came to like this new feature.
Tored had stimulated his imagination when he told him, that
He often trained alone until deep into the night to get a feeling for the energy blade.
During the aforementioned sparring with Tored, Seth watched Tored launch a transparent energy blade at him using his ax. he dodged it and, after gaining some insight from the dwarf ’s attack, tried to imitate him.
The new insight he gained from the skill gave him a weird idea. The next moment a panicked dwarf jumped out of the way of a quickly approaching wave of pale fire.
Seth had simply tried to combine the principle of
”What the hell was that!? ” the grumpy dwarf shouted. Tored was still patting his beard that was slightly singed by Seth ’s little experiment.
”I simply tried to use my
”But your circulation skill is only lv.6. how did it get so big? ”
”7, it just leveled up. Probably because it´s an ability and not bound to my mana? In exchange, it took a lot of mental energy and gave me a massive headache. So please don ’t talk so loud. ”
”hmm, I see. Then you will have to learn how to control that in the future. ”
And like this, another lesson was added to his daily routine that would cause him to go to bed with terrible headaches for a week or two.
Seth could only tremble at the thought, that he might have taken months to adjust the output during training. This would have been months of sleepless nights, tortured by splitting headaches. With
The first night without a headache felt like heaven and Seth learned just how blessed one was, to be able to get a good night ’s sleep. Now, he cursed himself for not sleeping more in the past. Wasting his time on games, when sleeping and eating were the true pinnacles of life!
But he really enjoyed pulling all-nighters to play a game or read a good story, so he forgave himself.
At least the result of this terrible training was worth it… more or less. He could not really fire off impressive energy blades or flame waves without incapacitating himself at the moment. Instead, he could use this method to cover a sword in a very thin and sharp layer of pale blue almost white flame. This cost Seth a lot less, than directly using his ability to cover the weapon and the visual effect was very cool. Similar to a lightsaber, the weapon would leave a trail of light, heat, and fire.
What was to be expected, was that this application was a lot more powerful in the smithy. When forging he could use it to control the heat of his workpiece. He could keep the temperature of the material constant for a longer period of time and did not have to return as often to the forge.
For common and some uncommon materials, he only needed to heat them up once in the forge and then he could keep working them on the anvil until he was done. It not only saved time but also helped in training his fire-related skills and the
His other skills also came along well as Seth had already reached lv.3 in
Fortunately, he was also able to make back several times the money, with the newly set up shop. Despite the current situation in Ora and the lesser frequented location business was doing well. Seth ’s reputation was good and the fact that he was working under one of the cities 3 Masters brought in many visitors through word of mouth. Despite spending money like crazy, it came back in even faster than he could spend it.
Of course, while Seth was sweating blood and tears, he made sure not to be alone. Whenever Seth was forging or sparring, Puffles was not far away cranking out
As he got more and more used to fighting and skillfully using the soul fire, he felt the urge to return to the dungeons. He was more than fed up with quests and fighting after what happened with the B-Rank exam. That was back then. Several weeks of peaceful and exhausting training had recharged his adventure batteries.
He needed some change! Seth wanted to see the fruits of his training. Also, he was lv.24 with only about 50% to go. There were more system privileges waiting and maybe he would unlock another class skill? He had been thinking about this for a long time now and it was driving him crazy. Tored also would not tell him about the system privileges.
To sum it up, the increase in fighting power, was the perfect excuse to run away from training and level up to see what lv.25 would bring!
