“So, your spell composition is made up of the Instant Spells: [Emergency Dodge], [Movement Prohibition], and the Guided Spells: [Truce] and [Range Attack Prohibition]?”
Salvatore frowned slightly, “It’s all combat-type support skills? Are you not going to learn [Reveal True Name]? And you’re disregarding spells that enable self-protection like [Spell: Paralysis] or [Spell: Eternal Pain]. If you want to complete a set of spells, be patient. Edict Wizard is unlike me, and its ability for self-protection is quite strong. On the contrary, [Revealing True Name] may be more crucial.
“Or, do you plan to learn it after the advancement into a transcender?”
“Yes.” Longjing Tea nodded and admitted it directly, “His Royal Highness Annan may need me quite soon. So, I must advance as soon as possible and immediately become a reliable combat power after I advance to help him.”
“What if Annan needs [Reveal True Name]?”
“Anyone can take that role as long as you have the money.” Longjing Tea’s thoughts were clear. “But I am the only Edict Wizard who can fight for His Highness Annan. Since I can be resurrected, I will definitely be sent to the frontline.
“However, I’m not the only combat power His Highness has at hand. When it comes to combat, Jiu Er and Delicious Wind Goose are much more proficient in it than me.
“Then, the only thing I can do well is assist and collaborate with them.
“[Emergency Dodge] allows my teammates to dodge undetectable sneak attacks from blind spots; [Movement Prohibition] allows my enemies to be hindered at the critical moment of dodging; [Truce] can effectively rescue our combatants from the melee attacks or force the enemy into a long-range battle; [Range Attack Prohibition] can make all projectiles within a considerable range lose their kinetic energy and immediately fall to the ground.”
These were all low-difficulty but practical skills in team fights.
It could be said that if Longjing Tea used his skills as a hero, he should be a powerful support hero.
“If we put aside your spell choices and only focus on spell compositions, your thinking direction is alright.” After pondering for a long time, Salvatore unexpectedly gave a fairly high evaluation rating. “It seems that you’re quite a bright person.”
“Then can I pass?”
“Yes. I can sign it for you here.” Salvatore nodded, scratched his shaggy hair, and let out a puff of smoke. Then, he spoke in his trademark voice, slightly irritable yet peaceful, “You can prepare to advance as soon as possible. My suggestion is to complete it within two weeks. Eh?“
At this moment, Salvatore heard a strange and clear echo from the amethyst behind him.
In the corner of the desk behind him was a triangular wooden frame made of three purple pine wood. The wooden structure was covered with a unique pure black aluminum foil. Above the aluminum foil was a prismatic amethyst suspended by two copper columns, and it swung like a swing in the playground.
This was a simple ritual available to the public that could be used for mailing purposes. It probably worked similarly to a fax machine.
At this instance, the amethyst rang its alarm. This meant that someone was casting a letter to Salvatore.
He turned his head and saw the amethyst swaying slightly. The bottom sheet of aluminum foil gradually faded, becoming a yellowish color and a parchment-like texture. As the color faded, black words began to emerge.
“What?” Seeing the contents of the letter, Salvatore was a little surprised.
The wanted Dream Stealer Danton was revealed.
The ‘Purest Spiritual Medium’ Bernardino and Dream Stealer Danton had fought?
Danton was even outright killed.
Bernardino was suspected of acquiring Hermetic’s Sage’s Stone Recipe.
After the death of nearly a hundred Silver Rank transcenders and a Gold Rank wizard, no nightmares were born. So, you needed reliable friends to artificially create nightmares?
Where is this going?
Salvatore looked confused.
It’s only been less than a day, hasn’t it? How did so many things happen?
He was suddenly lost in thought.
After a long time, he came back to his senses.
Annan wrote this letter to me. In other words, did he think of me as a “reliable” person?
…Tsk. Salvatore frowned and grinned.
Honestly, he was not confident enough to end this ordeal alone.
Annan, are you sure I’m really up to this?
Or, are you writing this letter to the “other me”?
Thinking of this possibility, Salvatore was irritated.
Although Annan was his best friend, the fact that Annan and “Vatore” also had a good relationship always worried Salvatore.
Especially after watching it several times, “Vatore” and Annan could reach a tacit communication without language or even contact, which made Salvatore even more worried.
Why does the relationship between my friend and my other soul seem more tacit than mine?
So, you both are friends.
So what am I?
But having said that, what made Salvatore sad was that when Annan mentioned “reliable friends”, even his first thought was “Vatore”.
Have I tacitly agreed that I am unreliable?!
Although he had already advanced into an alchemist, he was no longer so unreliable.
Technically speaking, Salvatore had completely surpassed who he once was.
In the past, Sal had a 50% success rate in crafting the Sage’s Stone. At this moment, Salvatore could reach a 70% success rate if he had the material.
However, this success rate was still far behind the shadow.
Of course, the shadow had not come out after the advancement. So Salvatore did not know how far “Vatore” had evolved.
But at least one thing Salvatore could be sure of.
If he could not solve the problem himself, “Vatore” might help Annan do it.
At least she has a good relationship with Annan.
It is unlike how Vatore treats me. She always wants to snatch away my body every day.
Well, I can’t screw up on this.
Salvatore, who was not thinking about success but the consequence of failing first, put his pride down.
He turned around and said solemnly to Longjing Tea, “You better step up your pace. It’s best to complete the advancement in two days.”
“I’m going to the Noah Kingdom in three days. Annan wrote to me. Maybe he’s in some trouble over there. Don’t you know about it?” Halfway through, Salvatore asked in surprise.
He remembered that Annan and Longjing Tea could communicate from a long distance.
Longjing Tea shook his head in confusion, “I haven’t heard of this yet.”
For some reason, Salvatore suddenly felt a little inexplicably happy after hearing this.
“Then, hurry up and advance. I’ll wait for you for two days. It’s best if you complete the advancement today, then we’ll set off tomorrow.” Salvatore smiled, suddenly thought of someone, and added, “Oh, by the way, I may bring another person. If Annan contacts you, you can tell him.”
“Von Hohenheim. You know that person too.” Salvatore smiled complacently, “He is now my apprentice. For such a grand event, I have to widen his worldview.”
So, what you’re saying is to show off to Annan about your student.
