As he got closer to the key, the man's smile deepened, "The key is mine!"He let out an excited roar as he reached out to the key with all his might. Yet, purple lightning suddenly descended from the skies at that moment. Everyone merely heard a crack as the lightning fell right on the man.The man let out a cry of agony as his whole body started to twitch. His skin started to blacken visibly as he was set on fire. He had already stopped breathing by the time his body hit the ground. He had been killed by the lightning that struck him. Everyone shuddered when they saw the sight.When the golden key had descended, everyone had greedy thoughts in their minds. However, the green-robed man had been the only person to try to steal the key. After all, everyone still had a line they would not cross. They knew that they could very well be punished by the laws if they made any moves. When they saw what happened to the man, all of them were incredibly thankful that they did not attempt to
He laughed as he said to Edgar, "You really were right. He really was breaking the array earlier. Fane's really something else. He's better than you both in talent and intelligence!"Edgar looked like he had been slapped by those words. Edgar looked at Albert with a look of intense hatred.Albert laughed it off, and as the two of them were about to quarrel again, the space around them suddenly distorted, surrounding everyone.Fane took a deep breath, not fighting back at the distorted space surrounding him. After a few moments, the space around him returned to normal.After he opened his eyes again, he noticed that he had left that dark and yellow world, and arrived at a pitch black one. Thankfully, Rudy was by his side. Rudy widened his eyes as Rudy looked around in shock.The sudden distortion earlier had thoroughly scared Rudy. Rudy reached out to grab Fane's arm, afraid that something was happening.Fane turned to look at Rudy, "Don't worry, the space suddenly distorted earli
He did not think that the old man was definitely right. Even if the old man was something left behind from ancient times, it would not change Fane's thoughts.The old man had a look of disdain on his face when he heard Fane's response, "Don't think I don't know what you're thinking. You're definitely a lot stronger than those ants outside, but you're nothing in my eyes."I know you have an upper ultimate god rank technique, but so what? Your skills are nothing special if you compare yourself to ancient warriors."Fane was stunned at those words. He had thought that the old man said that because the old man did not know anything about him, but the old man had actually seen through what level Fane's technique was in an instant. Fane was taken aback by that.Thinking about it, it did make sense. The old man was something left behind from ancient times. No matter what the old man was, he could control Thousand Leaves Tower. Anything that happened within the tower would naturally not es
Fane looked down at the entry token in his hand. The entry token could not help Fane get into a seventh level city but was actually only a guide toward the next city.Without the entry token, there was no way Fane could find the seventh level city even with all the skills in the world. Fane slowly started to understand that the Whirling World itself was a massive array. No matter how strong one was, they were insignificant in the whole of Whirling World.They would never be able to shake the laws of the Whirling World. Even if they had a map, they still needed to move according to the rules of the Whirling World, slowly advancing deeper inside. The more time passed, the more curious Fane got about the Whirling World. He wanted to see what lies at the end of the Whirling World.What secrets were hidden there? What were the Unbreaking Pavilion and Phoenix Valley planning? Those thoughts kept on circling Fane's mind. From what he had gathered, the two forces definitely had an immense s
Rudy stiffened at those words, suddenly getting excited and exclaimed, "A city for alchemists? Prosper City is a city for alchemists?!"Fane nodded as Fane slowly raised his head, looking at the gray skies."The Whirling World is an incredibly special place. The other seventh level cities are more or less the same, but only Prosper City has an indication next to it. It's written clearly that Prosper City was a city meant to test alchemists. All alchemists could head there."With Fane's confirmation, Rudy excitedly bounced around and cheered. He had an excited look on his face. Fane felt a little happy seeing how excited Rudy was.He had been wondering if he should head to Prosper City or somewhere else. In truth, Fane had a lot of choices on hand. After all, Fane was not weak in any way. After thinking about it for a while, he decided on Prosper City.Rudy was one of the reasons, but even more so was that he wanted to obtain the rewards from Prosper City. He might have done very w
"When have you ever seen an alchemist that's so strong? All alchemists throw themselves into the art, how could they have time to practice combat?!" Gent Morales was an alchemist that was raised by the Unbreaking Pavilion. He had quite a lot of pride. The Unbreaking Pavilion was somewhere that cultivated warriors, so alchemists only took up a small percentage.When they were in the clan, they were respected because of their status as an alchemist. However, the chosen disciples of the Unbreaking Pavilion would never bother showing respect to alchemists of their level. The chosen disciples felt like alchemists were just there to provide a service, and that alchemists were nothing that special.That was why Gent did not really like warriors that much. Mark Wright was the leader of all the alchemists from the Unbreaking Pavilion for the trip to the Whirling World, and could naturally not let the emotions get the better of him like this.Mark stared at Gent and said, "Since it's an ord
"I think there's something else behind this," whispered an alchemist from the Unbreaking Pavilion who seemed to be of no great rank.Gent raised an eyebrow before turning around. "Something else behind what?"That person hurriedly replied, "The order to capture Fane alive. I don't think it's because of what happened in Black Sun City."Right after he said that, Gent was taken aback for a moment. The others, too, started to discuss the matter."What could it be, then? You're just speculating at this point. Don't just say whatever you want to! Everyone knows about what happened in Black Sun City, but other than that, nothing else has been said."The average-looking man meaningfully persisted, "Of course, I'm not just saying it blindly. Just think about it: who was the one who issued this order?!"Everyone fell silent at this. They exchanged looks among themselves, suddenly understanding.A thought occurred to Gent at that moment. "It was Grayson."The man nodded. "It was Grayson.
Rudy deflated as he looked at Fane. "I just feel like the entry test isn't hard at all. We just need to complete thirty runes in the condensing plate to obtain the right to enter the city. Plus, we can bring a person along! What an easy test…"Fane felt exasperated when he heard this. "You haven't even seen what sort of pill runes you'll need to complete. How do you know it'll be easy?""It's just an entry test!" refuted Rudy weakly. "How could they give out difficult problems? We just need to complete thirty pill runes, which I'm all up for. Don't look down on me!"Fane did not know what to say at that moment. Fane had never underestimated Rudy and was just speaking the truth. If Rudy continued to stand his ground on the matter, Fane had nothing else to say.The two of them were talking to each other when Rudy looked up and saw the stone plate in front of them. They walked toward the stone plate and read the words on the plate.[The price is set. Ten thousand spirit crystals per
