It has come to an end.
Annan took a deep breath and opened his eyes.
Aside from the deadly “Spider Thread” nightmare with a dead end, this was indeed the most arduous nightmare Annan had ever experienced.
This was a distorted level nightmare.
The nightmare left behind after the death of a Gold Rank transcender had almost trapped Annan in it.
What about the more advanced nightmares?
According to the Paper Princess, there were higher tiers of nightmares above the Distorted difficulty level. A distorted nightmare was born after the death of a Gold Rank transcender.
Then, would the more powerful the Truth Rank transcender, as well as the saints and the deities, leave nightmares after death?
Those nightmares were collectively referred to as [Otherworldly Level].
That was the highest nightmare level in this world.
In this case, they were not so much a nightmare but a “dream world”. When souls were related to “truth”, the nightmare formed already had the characteristics of belonging to the world.
It was no longer a projection of information obtained from the dream world.
Just like the hole that appeared in glassblowing. The soul had opened up a small world in the dream world.
It was an eccentric, chaotic, nightmare world with unique properties.
It was uniquely different from other nightmares. The otherworldly level nightmare was not in this world at all. This world was just a key or a door.
Being killed in an otherworldly level nightmare was a true death. Moreover, it was much more difficult to resurrect the person if he died in another world.
That was the precise reason that powerhouses at this caliber would dart to the depths of the mist when they died.
After all, they were all able to act in the mist.
The purpose was to prevent otherworldly nightmares from appearing within the Great Barrier, leading to devastating disasters.
This also explained why searching for and recovering sacred bones was challenging.
In most cases, the retrieval of sacred bone not only required the task of venturing deep into the mist. There was a need to clear a nightmare at the otherworldly level to retrieve it.
Luckily, the sacred bones had consciousness.
As long as they were not suppressed or sealed, they would look for their host when qualified people appeared.
“I managed to purify a distorted nightmare upon the first encounter. Even though it’s worth celebrating, I shouldn’t be too proud.” Annan got up from the bed, adjusted the pillow, leaned on it, and said softly, “Give me all my decryption rewards… Eh?“
At this moment, Annan suddenly saw that there was an “Available to be advanced” prompt behind [Silver Knight], and the prompt blinked intermittently.
That was the prompt to confirm the assignment of 3 level points.
Then, Annan focused his attention on the prompt and saw a new line of text emerge.
[Silver Knight LV20 + 3 (Available to be advanced): Victory Knight LV3 (Main attribute: Constitution/Will)]
[Key words: Resilient, endurance, resistance]
[Proficient: Environment (Nightmare), Resist Negative Status, Brawl]
[Advancement requirements: Will and Constitution have to be above 20; Strength and Agility lower than 20. You’re required to fail over 100 times in a row, even without committing a mistake and then proceed to attain victory. Your previous nightmare rating has to be above A. This profession can only be attained through the knight-type profession’s advancement.]
Is this a new profession advancement?
Annan hesitated for a moment.
This profession seemed to be on the path toward the [Tank] aspect.
He also remembered that the mastery of the Silver Knight profession included “fighting alone” and “besiegement” aside from nightmares. This should correspond to the Silver Knight’s healing ability and overpowered fighting capability based on money.
For Annan, he was indeed incompatible with spendthrift warriors like Silver Knight. It was a valid option only when there were no other choices.
After all, advancement into a Silver Knight would only dispose of two skills, [Silver Hand] and [Silver Blade]. Nothing else would be lost. Those divine arts were exchanged through the system, and the [Silver Knight] profession only provided high Constitution bonuses.
Each level promotion of Silver Knight would increase 2 points of Constitution by default and then randomly add 1 point into one of the three physical attributes: Strength, Agility, and Constitution.
Such a high Constitution bonus was superb in Bronze Rank. However, Annan soon found it weak at Silver Rank, with “Frostwhisper” as a comparison.
It’s decided! Annan hesitated for a moment but clicked on the advancement.
After all, he was not a good fit for Silver Knight.
After all, Annan was a direct descendant of the Old Grandmother and would return to Austere-Winter Dukedom sooner or later. At that time, it would be hard to explain to the Old Grandmother after returning as a Silver Knight.
Moreover, the advancement requirement of the Victory Knight was difficult.
If it weren’t for Danton’s killing intent this time, it would be impossible to fulfill the conditions.
The rarer the profession, the more Annan wanted to try it out.
Even if Annan drew an SSR card  that was not quite practical, it was a much happier result than a more practical regular rarity card.
Annan believed that to be a player’s instinct.
Luckily, this profession did not disappoint him.
LVL 3 Victory Knight upgraded Annan’s attribute panel in this manner:
Attributes: Strength 15, Agility 16, Constitution 37 (+5), Perception 49, Will 31.
Each level promotion of Victory Knight would add 2 points of Constitution and 2 points of Will!
This was indeed a better Silver Rank profession than Silver Knight.
The common feature of the Silver Rank profession was that the Will attribute would be improved when leveling up.
That was because the ascension from Silver Rank to Gold Rank had a rigid Will attribute requirement.
This was one of the reasons why Captain Alexander had not advanced into Gold Rank so far.
Still, the Victory Knight’s skills did not disappoint Annan.
