After Annan confirmed the advancement, his Profession Overview became like this:
Silver Knight LV11: [Austere-Winter Swordsmanship LV5], [Frost Sword LV7], [Parallel Comprehension LV1], [Silver Hand LV1]
Wizard (Energy Falteration School) LV13: [Instant Spells LV3 (Chilling Touch, Slothful Eye, not yet)], [Guided Spells LV2 (Impeding Wall, Frost Nova, Notion Rain)], [Chant Spell LV1 (Frost Wheel)]
Priest (Silver Sire, engraving 0): Clanging Object, Sharp Object, Eternal Youth.
Annan couldn’t see anything special with Silver Knight for now.
After all, it did not have the suffix “swordsman,” so it was fair not to acquire new swordsmanship. Probably its unique characteristics would only be revealed when it was upgraded with more levels.
The only difference at present was that Annan’s last unused Silver Sire holy light engraving had combined with his “Disarm LV1” and turned into a new ability [Silver Hand].
Annan copied how he felt when he added ability points just now and focused his attention on his abilities. A general introduction to the various abilities of the “Silver Knight” profession slowly emerged before his eyes:
[Austere-Winter Swordsmanship LV5: Austere-Winter Dukedom style swordsmanship. Your attack is less likely to be blocked or parried when fighting enemies that are slower than you.]
[Effect after LV 4: When the opponent’s speed is significantly lower than you, the probability of attack being blocked or parried is slightly reduced.]
[Frost Sword LV7: This high-ranking swordsmanship is imbued with frost elements, which Frostborns can only utilize. You will extract the frost element from the bloodline and bless yourself with a “Frost Blood” state, which can cause a lot of frost elemental damage when attacking in a short time (Rank: Enemies below the truth cannot resist the elemental damage). Slashing out sword energy after activating it again will immediately end this state.]
[Effect after LV4: Every time the “Frost Blood” state is ended, all frost damage is temporarily increased by 7% (based on the current Frost Sword level), and your frost damage resistance is reduced by 7%. All up to 12 stacks.]
[Effect after LV7: “Will” attribute can further increase the Frost Sword’s damage.]
[Warning: This swordsmanship requires at least “Rank: Gold” before it can be used. Otherwise, it will consume a certain percentage of the maximum life each time upon usage. It will bring immense negative emotions before the “frost blood” state ends.]
[Parallel Comprehension LV1: You are proficient in weapons other than swords. You can use them to cast a sword ability. The weapons under this effect are light one-handed hammers, light clubs, and long daggers.]
[Silver Hand LV1: Silver Knight’s unique Transcended ability. Sacrifice a certain amount of silver coins to strengthen your weapons or shields temporarily. The more silver coins consumed, the stronger the enhancement.]
Annan was rendered speechless, almost cursing out loud.
This “Silver Knight” is simply a spendthrift profession!
Annan had a bad feeling about it.
Is it possible that the Silver Knight’s abilities after levels promotion are all about premium purchases with silver coins?
Oh ya, Silver Sire seems to be the Trade Deity.
The advancement of this “Silver Knight” requires at least Divine Art Level 1 in the Silver Sire Church. In other words, this profession is fair to be said as Silver Sire’s Templar or something similar.
The Templars of Trade Deity’s Church are all premium users.
It sounds reasonable.
“No, I have to ask Bread Daryl quickly about that.” Annan was annoyed.
Annan vaguely realized this just now, but he still lacked verification in this idea.
An all-around profession that could tank, fight, and heal—this meant that its growth would be balanced.
Balanced growth meant that it would take several times the funds and effort to catch up with the attribute gaps with other professions specializing in one proficiency.
As for the premium knight’s upper limit, Annan wasn’t worried.
After confirming that this might be a costly profession, Annan assessed his profession again. After seeing the keywords “Resilient and Endurance,” it became clear that he would never be weak.
The most crucial point about a costly profession was its sturdiness. It would be meaningless if the user couldn’t sustain critical hit damages.
Secondly, there should be no apparent shortcomings. After all, the distribution of the attributes was balanced. As long as it was built upon this foundation, there would be no more shortcomings compared to professions specializing in one field.
“Forget it. I’m more or less a faction leader.”
After changing his mind like this, Annan vaguely felt that this profession was not bad.
If survival was the priority, Silver Knight was indeed a great profession.
After all, Annan wasn’t short of money.
He could be a dealer if he didn’t mind. For example, he could utilize Don Juan’s identity or Annan’s identity to buy some high-end items that weren’t available to the players. Then, he could sell them to the players, which would undoubtedly achieve a win-win situation.
When the players had all advanced into Transcendence, Annan intended to scatter them in the world.
After all, the Freezing Water Port couldn’t afford to raise so many Transcended. Having the players stuck here was too wasteful.
With the players’ abilities, coupled with the players’ integrity, they could easily make a lot of money. If Annan sold the affection rating for money, he would get many silver coins that could be used for emergencies in a short period.
But that still feels weird…
It feels as if I’m asking for sugar mummies and daddies.
What is this?
Am I a publicly available lover?
“Haiz, forget it. I often portray myself in the wizard profession anyway.”
Annan hesitated for a moment but chose the astounding profession.
Annan could have challenged two more nightmares until the day the baby was born.
They were Justin’s nightmare and the gallery’s nightmare three days later.
If Annan could load the save file and challenge “Nightmare: Betrayer,” Annan would raise three levels in total. Otherwise, he was guaranteed to upgrade by two levels.
I should invest the earnt levels in Silver Knight.
Falteration Wizard has entered a stage of slow development.
Salvatore didn’t know any Bronze Rank’s Falteration spell. Annan didn’t have time to read the Edict School textbook Joseph sent over. He had to read the Rotten Man book first.
If Annan couldn’t learn new spells, his wizard level couldn’t be immediately transferred into combat power.
After all, the level upgrade was to acquire attribute points, and the wizard upgrade was only to receive spell slots.
Anyway, they would eventually be upgraded to Silver Rank.
It didn’t matter which order first.
Since Annan had dealt with advancement concerns, it was now the players’ turn.
Fortunately, Annan’s speed of clearing this nightmare was swift. It only took him twenty minutes to speed run through the gallery’s second level.
He carried the book “Rotten Man” and went to the carriage. When he arrived in Roseburg, Bishop Daryl had just finished lunch shortly.
Obviously, Bishop Daryl was surprised to learn that “Don Juan Geraint” was paying a visit to him. After all, Annan said that he wouldn’t be back in five days.
Bishop Daryl was taken aback at his first glimpse at Annan,
“How did you change your profession to Silver Knight?”
Annan was familiar with this reaction.
When he watched the seniors playing games, he would often be surprised: “How are you Level 15!?”
It felt like looking up to a premium player.
