Not long after Chen Rui left the Silver Moon Celestial Capital, Zola’s 3-hour merging time in the Star Conferring Platform had ended and she automatically appeared by his side.
The merging state of the Star Conferring Platform had a magical effect. After paying a certain amount of faith crystals, the Super System’s faith power could be used to restore the injury and power of the merged star. Ms. Fairy Dragon was now fully energized again.
Chen Rui simply recounted what happened. When she heard that the Tree of Nature was actually in the hands of her own man, the fairy dragon couldn’t help being stunned. This time it wasn’t a fake daze. As the daughter of the Elf King, she of couse knew what the Tree of Nature represented to the elf tribe.
Of course, Chen Rui did not mention anything related to the so-called ‘marriage’. The sentence he asked the elf empress before leaving was more of a memory and reminiscence. He had personally experienced the incident at the altar of the Nightmare Volcano. Blanche’s death was basically confirmed, but the shadow of the half-elf girl was still treasured in his mind.
In addition to the harvest of the Tree of Nature and creation origin, Chen Rui also received a direct reward from Kilanya for the ‘wood’ mission; it was a box.
This box was a kind of storage space equipment, but compared with ordinary space accessories, first of all, its space was amazingly large. It was simply a huge warehouse. Although it was not comparable to the storage warehouse of the Super System, it was also an item with the largest capacity space that Chen Rui had ever seen.
There were a lot of things piled up in the box, almost filling up the huge space. These things… to be precise, were all kinds of junk. However, Chen Rui was taken aback when he saw these ‘junks’. For him, these ‘ junks’ were much more valuable than black crystal coins of the same volume – The relics of the ancient alchemy civilization!
As the controller of the level 3 civilization alchemy civilization city, Chen Rui could clearly sense that the level of these items was quite high, far exceeding ‘Sky Wheel’ level 4 civilization city that he had seen on Storm Island. It was at least the level 5 ‘urban’ or might even be the level 6 ‘capital’.
The level 6 alchemy civilization capital was already the highest level of civilization. Only when the overall civilization reached a certain level could it evolve. The evolution was also unique. Back then, only 1 of the 4 empires of the alchemy civilization reached that level.
The City of Stars currently owned by Chen Rui was only a level 3 alchemy city, but after he obtained a lot of the yuan crystals in the mysterious Lost Land, he not only successfully created a separate game control crystal core, but those yuan crystals also greatly enhanced the power of the life center. Crystal Phoenix had reached the bottleneck by absorbing less than 1/10 of the stock. The upper limit of the controlled creatures and the control ability had been greatly enhanced.
The original spiritual imprint of the City of Stars’ controller was the Kingdom level. The upper limit of Crystal Phoenix was also directly related to the controller’s strength. As long as Chen Rui’s strength could break through the kingdom level and reach Demi-God, then Crystal Phoenix would be automatically upgraded to level 4 civilization core. However, in order to upgrade the entire civilization city, all kinds of rare materials were needed. These ‘ruins’ of at least a city-level civilization presented by Alucier was a timely help. With these materials, as soon as Chen Rui breaks through and improves the spiritual imprint of the integrated alchemy civilization, the City of Stars could be smoothly upgraded to level 4 or even higher.
Chen Rui put the box into the storage space. With the Holy Leaf Heraldry presented by Empress Liv, he passed the Purple Orchid Port of the elf tribe, boarded the Devil’s Snare Ship, and went straight for the Blue Glory Empire.
Zola’s harvest was also quite abundant in this trip to the Jade Forest Sea. The Element Goddess Crown was an artifact that surpassed the Tower of Glory, and it did not require the power of Pseudo-God to activate like the Tower of Glory. It was simply a tailor-made treasure for Zola. Not only that, after facing the arduous battle against the Abyss, Zola further comprehend the mystery of the [6 Elements Kingdom], and grasped the key to promotion to Demi-God. She only needed an entry point in order to advance directly to Demi-God.
—Although this ‘wood’ mission is deceiving, the reward is not so deceiving.
2 days later, the Devil’s Snare Ship arrived at Jaqda, the famous port city of the Blue Glory Empire, where he agreed to meet Proyo, Paglio and others.
Jaqda was the second largest city in the Blue Glory Empire besides the capital Frosty; it was very prosperous. Because it was adjacent to the blue moon sea area controlled by the elf tribe, the elf tribe was common in Jaqda. Many specialties of the Jade Forest Sea could be bought in the store, including some handicrafts and magic items from the elf.
Jaqda was best known not for its economy but for its military power. It was home to 1 of the most powerful ‘weapon of the empire’ in the entire Blue Glory Empire, the Magician Tower Group.
Magician was a very powerful profession, but it also cost a lot of money. The basic subjects that ordinary magicians needed to train include spirit power, magic, elements affinity, meditation, and so on. After mastering the basics, if one wanted to cast magic, one could self-comprehend it, but such efficiency and success rate were very low, plus it was easy to take detours. The quickest way was to use a special magic book to learn. Of course, it was better to have a teacher to guide, which undoubtedly made the ‘cost’ of magic learning higher. Especially in the human world where magic scroll was quite popular, the magician’s expenditure rate was second only to alchemy.
The advantage of the human world was in the systematic education of the college, and the formal qualification of magician could be obtained through the college study. Excellent talents might stay in the college for further study, and more would be recruited by various empires and kingdoms.
The magician tower was actually a residence for magicians to study and train magic. It was also a unique building for magicians in the human world, which was rarely seen in the Demon Realm.
The magician tower could be used to store objects such as magic books, scrolls or magic items, and it was also a base for resisting and evading powerful enemies. The location, structure, element attribute and other aspects were quite particular.
A good magician tower could not only make the magician’s training more effective, but it also played a key role in turning the tide during battles. The magician tower was also a symbol of identity and status. Generally, only magicians who reached Master or above were qualified to build the magician tower.
Jaqda had concentrated the most powerful magician force in the Blue Glory Empire. The scale of the magician tower was no longer a single existence but a planned collective ‘array’ collectively called the Magician Tower Group.
Due to the association between the Blue Glory Empire and the Silver Moon Celestial Capital, a considerable part of Jaqda’s magicians were elf residents. The whole city was also known as the ‘magician city’.
The elf tribe was the race of magic. Because of their respect for nature, Chen Rui did not see many man-made artifacts in the Silver Moon Celestial Capital, while in Jaqda, traces of magical civilization could be seen everywhere.
A huge magic ship similar to a hot air balloon was flying in the sky, patrolling the whole city back and forth. Almost every shop had magic puppets that provided simple services, and even the wheels on the carriage had special elements driving force…
The most excited was Zola. Although these magic items were not worth mentioning to her in terms of power, the most rare thing was the novel idea, which broke the limits of many habitual thinking.
For a time, Fairy Dragon was immensely inspired. She was very excited. She had a small notebook in her hand which she recorded from time to time, lest she missed the inspiration.
After Zola walked for a while, her eyes were attracted by the fish lamp at the entrance of a magic shop. The lamp was actually a large fish tank. The swimming fish in it glowed brightly and changed constantly, which was very interesting.
Ms. Fairy Dragon’s eyes lit up and walked over.
At the entrance of the magic shop was a young female clerk. Seeing that Zola was interested in the fish lamp, she quickly promoted that this was the shop’s signature product from a well-known magician.
However, after praising the idea of the lamp, Zola, instead of buying it, pointed out a series of problems, including various defects of the lamp. She also pointed out that the fish would die in a maximum of 1 year.
The scale of this magic shop was very large. It seemed to be quite famous as there were many people coming and going. The clerk, fearing that it would affect the business, argued with Zola.
Chen Rui knew that Zola was discussing in the spirit of research, but after all, it had an effect on other people’s business. When he was about to go up to smooth things out, the voice on the side sounded, “Then according to this lady’s opinion, how can we prevent these fishes from dying too early?”
The question came from a middle-aged man with a beard, dressed in a simple magician robe. He was about to leave the shop when he happened to encounter Zola’s question about the fish lamp, so he listened to it at the side with great interest.
Chen Rui could see at a glance that this man’s strength had reached the peak stage of Saint (Demon Overlord), and his breath was very strong. It seemed that he was not far from being kingdomized. He also noticed that as soon as the man talked, the female clerk who had been criticizing just now suddenly became silent. Obviously, the middle-aged man was a well-known magician.
Compared with Zola, the strength of the man was of course insignificant, but Ms. Fairy Dragon would not discriminate in terms of strength when encountering problems such as scientific research. In fact, she seriously proposed some ideas for improvement.
“Marvelous idea!” The man became more and more surprised and seemed awe-inspiring, “My name is Lild, may I ask lady’s name?”
Zola glanced at Chen Rui, and Chen Rui smiled as he spoke up, “My name is Arthur, this is my wife Zola. Please pardon our rudeness just now, Sir Lild.”
Lild secretly thought. Although the strength of these 2 people was only a mere Warrior, a Saint magician like him was amazed by the knowledge and insight shown by the woman. It seems that their strength is by no means as simple as it seems on the surface.
After hearing Lild telling about his background, neither Zola nor Chen Rui had a special reaction. It seemed that they had never heard of the magician’s name. Since Lild guessed that Zola’s strength was extraordinary, he didn’t care, but the clerk on the side was somewhat annoyed when she saw it – Where did these 2 bumpkins come from? They haven’t even heard about the famous Sir Lild of the Magician Tower Group?!
“No worries!” Lild said with a look of admiration, “Madam Zola’s insight makes me sincerely admire. That kind of improvement method combining light element with water element can at least double the efficacy of this light, and the lifespan of the fish will also be extended to 5 years, but… I still don’t understand the water element structure of the ‘cloud chain’ mentioned by Madam Zola just now.”
Zola was quite satisfied with Lild’s title of ‘madam’, so she patiently explained the structure of the ‘cloud chain’ water element magic circle.
Because of her profound knowledge, Lild became more and more confused about some questions. Chen Rui saw the crux of the problem and added a few sentences in plain language.
Lild had a lightbulb moment. He looked at Chen Rui a little more strangely – This couple is not ordinary people!
Lild’s thoughts flew rapidly, and he immediately performed a formal magician etiquette, “Thanks to the answers of the two guests. I have mastered new knowledge. It’s really exciting to meet the 2 of you today, I don’t know if I can honorably invite the 2 of you to my magician tower?”
The female clerk’s eyes widened: Sir Lild actually took the initiative to invite the 2 of them to the magician tower! What an honor this is?! This Saint magician rarely sees guests normally. Even the Sir City Lord has never entered his magician tower!
TL: Hmm, hopefully Zola won’t blow up his magician tower…
