In this moment in the Goblin Shop, Green and Card are located in the back storage room having a secret conversation.
"Master, this is the information and magic crystal you requested."Goblin Card respectfully presented the leather pocket, which is full to the rim of items Green needed.In addition to the items, the bag contains a crystal of knowledge on knowledge Green requested.
Green picked up the crystal of knowledge, and place it on his forehead. Instantly, he hear the sound of the chip resonating in his mind.
"Beep! External data interface found. Do you want to import data to main storage?"
"Beep! Order Accepted.Starting data entry ... "
Following the cyan instructions in his lower retina, Green has transferred all of the knowledge of all the crystals to his mind. As for the remaining data processing. He has left all of it to the chip to do.
After processing the crystal of knowledge, Green opened the leather pocket, which contains various attributes magic crystal nucleus, which includes some of the most common five element crystals, and also rarer ones such as darkness, plant, poison and light ... ... As for their rankings, everything from beginning level to quasi-wizard level for each type of crystal.
Unfortunately, there is no wizard level magic crystal!
However, it is not outside of his expectations, Green has long been acknowledges that they are not easy to come by, so there is no surprise for him. Green took a simple count of it and then place it to his bag.
After becoming a fire class wizard, his apprentices level magic golem are no longer as great as before.But when in a pinch, these low-level magic puppet can still play a small, yet important, role.So Green slowly collected the knowledge, and carved his own magic puppet army.
On his own when he is a wizard apprentice, Green had notice the current knowledge for wizards are too narrow and one-sided.In his mind, a quasi-witch is no different then a wizard apprentice with mental power of 20 points, and such level of the wizard is nothing but the difference of mental power!
But after his dangerous ascension to a wizard,Green was finally able to see the strength gap between a wizard an a apprentice.
In order to be a wizard, it is not as simple as have reaching the mental of 21 points, but a change in the original spirit of the existence and the qualitative change in the process.Before the ascension, his spiritual power has 20 points, but after, it was reduced by 0.9 instead!
This was not to say that his mental strength is declining, but the wizard and the apprentice's basic character power measurement had been completely different.Apprentice's character attributes are basically based on the physical data of ordinary adults, and then it is used to measure the strength of apprentices relative to other adults,while wizards is a class of magical beings.
Wild monster and beast have natural magic talent, and magic crystals located in their bodies, hence they have better ability in manipulate magic elements.The wizards are obviously imitating them, but as all imitation, they are no at the same level.
Magic monster's crystal are a physical phenomenon, and after they are key it can be found. , compare to a wizard's core, which is a virtual core, and that it only exist in there consciousness.
Even after slaying a wizard, it is impossible to seize a wizard's core similar to what isdone with a magical beast. But the mind cores is sure to exist, because all the wizards only rely on it to manipulate the magic elements.
If the standard of the mentality of a wizard just 1, then the current Green is substandard. His mentality is only 0.9!But it is due to the fact he ascend differently. As long as the time, he will eventually reach the stand one for mentality.
More than a month after the arrival of Fernando, Green measured the gap between the wizard and quzi-wizard.If a quasi-witch's mental power upper limit is 20 points, then the wizard's 1 point of mental power is almost equal to the quasi-wizard's100 points.
This means that, aside from the mental suppression, magical equipment, magical knowledge and magical techniques and other differences, even if the spirit of the strength of a single, a wizard alone is also enough to dominate five quasi-wizards. .If you let go a wizard go while, then a battle harden veteran can easily kill 7 to 8 quasi-wizard.
Wizards are always wizards!
As long as you have not reached the wizard class, then you in the eyes of the wizard, it is just a lowly bug.Although most wizard follow the principle of protecting the source, many of the wizards will pick out apprentices with good potential for extra training and care.But in deep in their heart, they are still wizard apprentice and can not be compared to their own kind.
Get the things he wanted, Green did not stay in the Goblin Shop too long, and head straight to the outskirts of the wizard tower.
Compare to the magic tower located in the swamp, the magic tower of Fernando is a true magic tower.The whole magic tower have 17 layers, each layer with special means to expand the internal space, packed of highly advance magical facilities, compare to the backwater magic tower at the swamp.
Despite such formidable magic tower, it is rarely filled with wizards.
In addition to the 2nd order Ferguson, there are only three first-order family wizards.Therefore, during Green's stay in the magic tower for a month, the number of contacts with other wizards are less then the amount of fingers then he has on his hands,
These wizards all have strange personality strange, and are either hiding in the laboratory every day extremely dangerous witchcraft experiment, or go out to collect the necessary knowledge and resources. Therefore, it is rare to see them aimlessly wander around. Moreover, there is only 6 month under the start of the Sanlu family battle, therefore all the wizards are scrambling to prepare for the war, otherwise even veterans will be at hell's mouth.
So the family wizards are finally getting busy!
After this period of stability and recollection, Green's finally have a good concept of the battle field status.From the information he obtain, the war is a tough choice!
What a wizard family to rise to frame? Go to war!
Want to make a wizard family disappear?Go to war!
A little bit of war, allows wizard to usurp the family's resources and wealth, is also the reason why wizard's family are worried.
By choosing a target, and then invade the realm, leaching the massive amount of rare resources and knowledge of the mysterious, will make any backwater family in to a top family. And as these resources and knowledge continue to trickle back to the family,the family can cultivate more and more excellent new wizards.
So, with a bit of war to obtain the resources and knowledge to train themselves more new wizards, and then the new wizards will become part of the family can open enter greater battlefields in the future to obtain more resources.Only in this way, the wizards family can embark on enviable virtuous circle, and grow up step by step.
But win or lose is only the surface of the war.
Once a wizard family lost in the realm war, a large number of wizards fall, huge amounts of resources investment without any return, then the patriarch wizard family is also have to bear such heavy blow.Going to the battlefield once or twice is good, however long encounters will attract hostile family or ill-intentioned family forces took the opportunity to invade the whole wizard family, and led the family to demise!
The central part of the mainland Tailin area, are littered with hundreds of wizard family, these wizard family through marriage, alliance, merger and other means to form a large and small coalitions, so that the relationships between families are increasingly complex and chaotic.
And every wizard family or college, school, alliance and other wizards forces, all have their own secondary realms.
The so-called secondary realm is actually a well developed small and medium-sized planes, although the overall strength of resources are not comparable a large plane, and the power located in such planes are vastly weaker.
Given enough time to grow and develop, then they grow and develop in to a large plane. But once it is found by the wizards in the depths of the sea, they were like the lambs that in fount of wolves, and the invasion is inevitable.
The wizard world is are gem in the sea of realms, with high level of materials and resources.If the wizards find another material plane in the depths of the the deep sea, they will try to assess their overall strength. Once they feel it is profitable, they will return to the wizard world to convene a powerful force to invade it.
The war between large planes and large planes do not occur easily, as the invasion is too difficult, and the cost of resources is to high to get a decent return in the short term.Therefore, the invasions mainly occur in the realms of small and medium-sized planes!
Individual strong medium-sized planes, may need to forces the level of Tallinn, North Witch, Wizard Association, Silver Union to invade successfully.As for the general small and medium-sized planes, an ordinary wizard family is enough to do such a job.
The measurement of the strength of family forces, is largely based on the number of invasion of the realms each year, and the amount of resources that they can squeeze of the realms that they conquer. And within each wizard family, the realm's coordinates of the world they conquer are their valuable property, and must not be leak to any hostile forces.
According to legend, the Salu Bo family has two small secondary level realms, but they are relatively low degree of development of the regional cooperation model, far less then the return of enslavement of conquered realms.
Regional cooperation model is used when the invasion of small planes of the wizard family forces is too thin, and is not enough to suppress the opposing forces in the realm. Therefore, in order to avoid incurring greater losses, the invasion of the wizards family and the face of indigenous settlement reached a regional cooperation, joint development of the name of the bilateral trade.
Although the invasion family forces need to give the indigenous some resources in order to have a deal, but when the items are resold to the wizard world, they can still can maintain a high return.Although the earnings are substantially less then forced occupation and enslavement but the risk of war will be much smaller!
And the Saulu Bo family by virtue of these two small secondary level realms, therefore are consider a mid level family in the local regional area. And this new surface war,could l bring the family three additional secondary level realms.
