The World of Deities - chapter 62
Hearing the door close, Su Ye sat for a while. Then, he grabbed the dagger with one hand and the purse with the other and quickly entered the bedroom. He placed the spoils of war together.
Three hundred gold Zeus, a magic dagger, and a magic ring.
The total value was 1,200 gold eagles.
Su Ye stared at the spoils of war and kept thinking.
After a while, he grabbed everything, closed his eyes, and entered the ruins space.
The ruins space was no different from before. The white light formed an outer wall, and the huge headless statue’s hands hung down. The altar stood there.
Under the altar, the 100 gold eagles that he got from Kelton were still there.
“This time, with enough things, I can test the effects of the altar. Although there might be some losses, the sooner I know the detailed functions of the altar, the better.”
Su Ye thought to himself and walked to the side of the altar. He held the big money bag in his left hand and threw the gold eagles onto the altar one by one.
One, two, three..
Until the 99th gold coin, there was no response from the altar.
Su Ye held the 100th gold coin and threw it onto the altar.
Along with the crisp sound of the gold coin landing on the jade altar, each gold coin flew out a bit of white light and merged together to form a white fog, drilling into the altar.
The first ring of the altar suddenly emitted a white light, and then the light soared into the sky, forming a cone of light that was thin at the bottom and thick at the top.
Within the light, four talent elves appeared.
Just like before, each talent elf had a transparent body. It was the size of a pinky, and it was curled up in a deep sleep with its arms crossed. Its body had a pair of transparent wings that looked like dragonflies.
Su Ye’s gaze swept across the four talented elves, and he was expressionless.
One was beautiful handwriting, which could make the writing look better.
Another was the sound of the zither, which could strengthen one’s talent in playing the zither.
Yet another was an elegant posture, which could enhance one’s appearance, physique, and charisma.
The last one was an agile posture, which was the only non-artistic talent. It belonged to the battle physique talent, which could enhance the ability to dodge, move, and react in a small area.
No intelligence or magic talent.
“Very good, then I will dare to experiment.”
Su Ye didn’t hesitate to bend over, take all the gold coins and take down the altar.
The light of the altar didn’t disappear, and the talent elves didn’t either.
Su Ye carefully looked at the gold coins, and they were all slightly dimmer than before.
Su Ye compared them again, and the result was the same. Although it wasn’t obvious, these were indeed dimmer than the gold coins that had never been on the altar.
“In other words, the lowest limit of this altar is 100 gold eagles, which is equivalent to one-third of my family’s property. Moreover, it is the reincarnation of a starving ghost. Once the sacrifice is completed, it will not be returned. What’s worse is that it will never give me the talent I want! I want the memory type, the learning type, and the magic type. I won’t come twice in a row!”
“Anyway, there is nothing I want. I will take the risk and try again.”
Su Ye took a deep breath and suddenly left the ruins space. He quickly returned.
The light and the talent elves on the altar were still there.
“They didn’t disappear. Not bad.”
Su Ye thought to himself. He threw the magic dagger that belonged to Ha Ke onto the altar, but nothing happened.
“At the beginning, I didn’t succeed with the gold eagles and the magic dagger. Later, the gold eagles were able to complete the sacrifice because Kelton decided to give me the money. The ownership and usage rights changed. Then…”
Su Ye placed the magic dagger “gifted” by Sai Nite on the altar.
A small white mist emerged from the magic dagger and entered the altar. Then, the first circle became brighter, and the cone on the altar became brighter. Above the four talent elves in the first row, the second row had four talent elves.
One was music awakening, which he had seen before.
Another was the eruption of inspiration, which was suitable for all kinds of arts.
Another was the color perception, which was suitable for painting.
The last one was the body of Gale, which increased a person’s running speed, sprinting speed, attacking speed, and so on by a small margin. It was an excellent talent for warriors.
“This is challenging me.” Su Ye gnashed his teeth in hatred.
The three sacrifices were either the talent of art or the talent of battle physique.
“Perfect, I have an excuse to continue the experiment!” Generally speaking, the result of the sacrifice would improve as the number of items increased, but it also needed to change from quantity to quality. Now, there were two hundred gold eagles on the altar, and with the magic ring, the total price reached 1,000 gold eagles. With a ten-fold increase, I believe I should be able to get a better reward.”
Su Ye gritted his teeth and placed the magic ring on the altar.
The magic ring emitted a white fog that was thicker than all the other items and was sucked into the altar.
Then, the first ring shook slightly and the cone-shaped white light was withdrawn, along with the eight talent elves.
The light of the first ring dimmed and returned to its calm state.
Su Ye’s expression did not change and his heart was beating wildly.
Suddenly, the second ring of light lit up, and an even brighter and larger cone-shaped light erupted upwards, and four little elves appeared inside.
Su Ye took a deep breath and glanced at the four innate elves, then he could not help but grin.
“Time will change!”
Among the four innate elves, there were actually two warrior innate elves and two magic innate elves! There was not a single useless elf.
One was proficient in battle techniques, which could make one more proficient in battle techniques.
Another was agile and could agilely wield weapons.
Another was fire-type talent: burning. It increased the burning power of all fire-type spells.
The last was magic talent, mana surge. It increased the flow of mana in the magic array diagram, which also meant that it increased the casting speed.
Su Ye could not stop smiling because the talent of mana surge was an extremely rare and powerful fighting talent.
The talent of mana surge could reduce the casting time of all spells by one second!
This meant that any spell that could be cast in one second could be cast instantly after the mana surge. There were many spells that could only cast for one second, even if most of them were not offensive.
Su Ye could not believe it. He blinked and took a closer look before confirming that he was extremely lucky today.
Su Ye stared at burning and mana surge. He did not think too much and decided to choose the latter.
Although burning could increase the power of fire magic, it was only in terms of quantity. Mana surge seemed to be a change in quantity, but if combined with mana surge, which could reduce the casting time by two seconds, it could instantly cast all the familiar apprentice, black iron, and bronze spells.
Even someone as strong as Ni Deen could not instantly cast any apprentice spells.
As if afraid that the “mana surge” was going to disappear, Su Ye immediately reached out to grab the little elf.
The moment his fingertips touched the talent elf, the talent elf opened its eyes, flapped its wings, and turned into light that entered his fingers. Su Ye felt that something had appeared in his mage tower.
The light from the altar converged, and all the talent elves disappeared.
Su Ye could hardly control his excitement. He really did not expect that he could actually obtain the rare talent elf, mana surge.
In the world of mages, the casting speed was not the only factor that determined the battle, but it was definitely one of the most important factors.
For a mage, 100 magic ox bodies are not as good as one mana surge.
