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
Rudy snorted as he turned to tell Fane. "These warriors are clever, I'll give them that. Why did not one put up a plate like that in Thousand Leaves City? The moment it concerns their benefits, they put up the stone plate."Fane nodded. "In the end, the Hestia Continent is a place where strength matters the most. If the alchemists decide to retaliate, the warriors will probably attack them together. The alchemists aren't that strong anyway. Since they have no way of fighting back, they were forced to lower their heads."Rudy frowned and said unhappily, "Us alchemists are at such a disadvantage, but most alchemists come from larger forces. Are those forces not going to do anything about it?"Fane did not even bother looking at Rudy. "Why don't you put some thought into this? This is the Whirling World. Those who are truly strong can't enter. The only ones who can help these alchemists are warriors that are currently being trained."However, most of those warriors have gone to other
A group of about 19 people came up behind Mark after he introduced himself, and they shot Fane a seemingly unfriendly gaze.Fane frowned, immediately knowing that there would be trouble the moment he heard they were from the Unbreaking Pavilion.Fane raised an eyebrow as he sneered, "Are you trying to cause me trouble? Feel free to try, but with just your group, you'll just die on the spot if you try anything."Mark's expression soured at those words. He had wanted to be cordial with Fane, yet Fane's straightforwardness ruined that. Mark failed to even maintain his smile.Mark snorted. "This is the entry plaza, and the laws of Prosper City protect it. If you try anything here, you'll be struck by lightning before you can even do anything!"Fane raised an eyebrow, knowing that was indeed the case. "We'll fight outside, then," said Fane. "All twenty of you can fight me at the same time."Fane was not worried despite their numbers. They might be from the Unbreaking Pavilion, but the
