1397 Talent Advancement
Two necromancy attendants appeared from the shadows and bowed to Fang Heng.
“Welcome, invited guest. Please follow me. Teacher Gu Luo has been waiting for you for a long time.”
The two necromancy attendants stood up and gestured for Fang Heng to move forward. They led Fang Heng up the ancient wooden stairs on the right side of the tower.
Fang Heng caught up unhurriedly.
It seemed that no one had been here for a long time. Every step on the stairs made a creaking sound, making him worry that he would suddenly fall down.
The necromancy attendants seemed to be floating on the ground and did not make any noise as they walked.
They walked up the stairs until they were close to the top floor. The necromancy attendants stopped and gently knocked on the wooden door on the side.
A kind voice came from the room.
The two necromancy attendants stood respectfully at the wooden door and gestured for Fang Heng to enter.
Fang Heng walked forward.
There was no lock on the wooden door. Fang Heng pushed it open easily with a light touch.
Behind the door was a huge study. An old man sat behind the study with his hands flat on the table. His eyes were deep.
Gu Luo watched Fang Heng walk in from outside the door, his eyes revealing a satisfied expression. He had been waiting for Fang Heng for quite some time.
“Very good, Fang Heng. You’re really not bad.”
Fang Heng listened to Gu Luo’s praise and had a strange feeling. He did not know what Gu Luo was referring to, so he could only nod at the latter.
“In the past few hundred years, there have been many outstanding new necromancers, but you’re the one I’m most satisfied with. Do you know why?”
Fang Heng shook his head.
Gu Luo sat behind the desk, his calm face revealing a hint of gloominess.
“Because what you did was very much in line with my thoughts.”
Fang Heng was even more confused.
“Some mistakes are unforgivable.” Gu Luo changed to a more comfortable position and sat on the chair. He continued, “The Holy Court has suppressed the academic faction of necromancy in various worlds, treating us as the embodiment of evil. I can’t understand why some people can accept such unfair treatment.”
Hearing this, Fang Heng already had some understanding in his heart.
Li Qingran had mentioned before that most of the necromancers were extremely academic. They only hated the Holy Court, but they weren’t so desperate to fight to the death.
However, a small portion of the higher-ups were not like that.
Because of certain things, they hated the Holy Court.
Gu Luo seemed to be one of them.
“We should make our stance clear and make the Holy Court pay for what they have done. In fact, I don’t think there is a need for the Holy Court to exist. This is what I have always advocated in Punoze.”
Gu Luo stood up and walked forward. He stretched out his bony palm and patted Fang Heng’s shoulder, “Fang Heng, I’ve seen your performance in the barbarian realm. You’re really good. You’ve set an example for those stupid and stubborn scholars.”
Gu Luo laughed disdainfully, “You think they’re idiots too, right?”
Fang Heng smiled and nodded.
“Hahahaha, very good. I know that you are currently looking for further power. A long time ago, when I was exploring the path of death, I accidentally obtained a powerful power. It can help you stimulate the advancement of the foreign power in your body.”
“Of course, all of this isn’t free.” Gu Luo looked at Fang Heng and stared into his eyes as he spoke, “Ordinary tests are for those laymen outside. It’s meaningless to you. I don’t want to waste time. You’re about to face real danger. I’ll tell you in advance that the test you’re about to receive is related to the Holy Court. If you’re not careful, you might die. Tell me, Fang Heng, are you afraid?”
[Hint: Player has completed the current mission-Seeking guidance. The player has found the talent guidance teacher-special character: Gu Luo (Level SSS), this character can trigger the SSS-level talent advancement option at most.]
[Hint: The player can trigger the next phase of the mission-Gu Luo’s test.]
[Hint: The player can choose whether to reject this guidance mission and seek other guidance teachers for talent.]
“Of course, I’ve never liked the Holy Court.”
Fang Heng shrugged and told the truth. He was already here. Moreover, he and the Holy Court were not on good terms. The enmity between the two sides had been going on for a long time.
Gu Luo was very satisfied with Fang Heng’s answer.
“As your talent teacher, I will guide you to further stimulate the power in your body and strengthen your talent. With my current ability, I can increase your ability to the highest level.”
Fang Heng’s expression turned serious as he spoke, “Please go ahead, Teacher.”
“First, I can change your talent. Under extreme conditions, I can randomly select 300 talents rated A and above for you to choose from. After that, you can also upgrade this talent to S-level.”
Fang Heng’s pupils contracted.
Moreover, it was one out of 300. The probability of choosing an S-level talent was extremely high.
It could even give him an S-level talent upgrade!
No wonder many high-end players said that Level 30 was a chance to change one’s fate.
However, he did not need this.
The zombie clone was already a hidden SSS-level talent. It was obtained by chance and could not be obtained by ordinary drawing. Moreover, his first talent upgrade was a higher SSS-level talent.
There was no reason to re-select.
Fang Heng asked, “What about the second one?”
“The second is to upgrade your talent again.”
Fang Heng nodded, thinking that since he was here, choosing the first type meant that the talent obtained would only have one chance to level up. As for the second type, compared to the first type, the player would have one more chance to strengthen it.
“I choose the second option.”
“Very good. After completing my trial, I will guide you to advance your talent. However, during this period, you will need to use a special tool. I need you to prepare in advance.”
“Alright, what kind of prop is it? A brilliant crystal?”
Fang Heng’s heart skipped a beat.
He was very familiar with the brilliant crystal. It was an item that had dropped after killing the abyssal demon.
“Not bad. It seems that you have done some homework in advance. In order to achieve the advancement of your talent, you need to gather a total of three brilliant crystals to complete the second enhancement of your talent. In addition, brilliant crystals are also divided into levels. If you gather three of the highest level brilliant crystals, I can completely awaken the hidden power of your talent, which is the so-called SSS-level second enhancement of your talent.”
