Chapter 117: Reverse Seal (Part One)
In the base, a brand new source energy assessment machine was placed in a separate room.
This was specifically bought in by Han to test his own source power index.
The vintage detector wasn’t strong enough, and after receiving a punch full of dark energy from Han, it was immediately destroyed.
The computer in this room was connected to the Dark Web, and the video was synced real time. Pathless Origin and Night Walker all seemed like they were really looking forward to this.
“This system should be okay, there’s a power overload protection installed so if your dark power is still very powerful, at most it will just burn the high pressure tube and in that case we just have to get a new one.” Night Walker smiled and nodded.
Pathless Origin looked very anxious and said, “Why are you still waiting, hurry and start testing. I really want to know what your source energy index is at now after you finished that other half of the Heart of Darkness.”
Han heavily nodded, and he began to take his stance.
Withdrawing his arm back, accelerating, and then punch!
Han waved his fist against the enhanced assessment machine, and soon a very dull explosion sound came out from the room, and smoke began to come out of the assessment machine. However, the numbers on the screen were still beating.
Night Walker smiled, “Sure enough, the high-pressure tube burned out, but the data was still retained.”
The number finally stopped refreshing, it stopped at 43,162.
Suddenly, Night Walker and Pathless Origin felt a wave of dizziness… When Han just entered the A-19 relic he just broke through 4-star, and after two months he’s already at intermediate 4-star level?!
Isn’t this speed a bit too quick?!
Han frowned, “Intermediate four star, seems okay.”
The hot tempered Pathless started speaking in a high channel right away, “Han! If your speed is considered okay, then everyone else can go suicide now!”
“The Milky Ways’ level system was developed based on the prehistoric civilization, and its arranged hierarchy is very stupid. With 10,000 source power index units, you can be recognized as a 4-star esper. But to reach intermediate, you have to break through 40,000!”
“It might sound like a beginner 4-star is not that different from intermediate 4-star, but in fact there’s a huge difference!”
Night Walker nodded, and said, “Pathless is right, the higher the level, the greater the gap. Leveling up is very difficult. Take Long Chuan for example. 20 years ago he was already sitting at the pinnacle of 4-star, but now he’s still there. On Earth, he’s recognized as the talent of the generation right? But his leveling up speed is like that too.”
“In the Milky Way, there are a lot of soldiers like Long Chuan. You can pull your level from beginner to intermediate 4-star in just 4 months, this speed is really against all heaven principles.”
Han thought about it and said, “It should be the other half Heart of Darkness’s work. By the way, why doesn’t this machine display my natural growth rate?”
Night Walker explained, “Put very simply, after absorbing that heart of darkness, your source energy isn’t pure anymore. Even though you didn’t use the power of darkness, but your punches will still bring out some shadow of the dark forces.”
“That’s why the machine’s high-pressure pipe will burn up. As for why it didn’t display your natural growth rate, that’s probably the reason too.”
Han smiled, “Who cares. After all, leveling up is not a bad thing. Teachers, the little black ball inlaid with gold that I showed you guys, did you tell Earth Claw’s maker yet? What did he say?”
At the A-19 relic, Han used a synthetic dark beast named Earth Claw. After it died, a flower unexpectedly bloomed and it also bore a black gold ball, very strange.
Because the Earth Claw was something Night Walker gifted Han before, Han asked Night Walker to ask the genetic scientists that made the Earth Claw and see if they knew why.
Night Walker shrugged his shoulders and said, “I showed him the photo, he said he had never seen something like that before so he also wanted you to send him that little ball for him to study.”
Han said, “That works too, can I see him once? First is to find out what this little ball is, and secondly I want to buy some new dark synthesized beasts from him. On this trip to the A-19, the explosion bug, the Earth claw, the bloodthirsty dark wind vine all were a great help. Now I’m increasingly interested in genetic science.”
Pathless Origin heard it and began to laugh heartlessly, “Han, it seems like you are deliberately trying to piss off the Night Walker, right? He sent you the book he wrote hoping that you can learn some pharmacology, and the result is that you are actually not that interested, and rather follow someone you have never met before to learn genetic science? Look, even Old Black’s face turned green.”
“Speak less nonsense!” Night Walker waved his hand at Pathless and said to Han, “You won’t be able to see him in awhile, he’s very busy.”
“But having said that, I feel like I can use those condensed power crystals you sent me. But the only problem is, if a soldier uses this to increase level, then his potential will be completely sealed.”
“In other words, once the condensed crystal is used, their level won’t increase at all in the future.”
Han said, “No problem, I plan to give these condensed crystals to adults like Long Chuan to use. Originally they don’t have hope for leveling up again in this lifetime, if they can receive one last source-energy boost, it’s a pretty good result for them too.”
Night Walker nodded, “If they really don’t care about potential, then I will give you a solution plan as soon as possible.”
“Thanks!” Han paid a salute to Night Walker and Pathless Origin and said, “Tomorrow morning Ke Lake and I are going into the relic to scout, so I’m going to go pack.”
“After this time I finally realized, the galactic dark net is definitely a big treasure. Drugs, synthesized dark beasts and plants, these things are way too useful. Unfortunately, I’m too busy these days, otherwise I really plan on just staying on the dark net and investing more time in it to really study it.”
Before the sky lit up, Han already packed the equipment he planned to bring, and met up with Ke Lake at the entrance to the extinction domain. They saw that the 13 Guardians and 3 giants were already there.
The 13 guardians are 13 alien warriors that reached 5-star level. 9 of them came from the Red Dragon tribe and they were very close with Ke Lake, with Jimmy, Fujimori, and Pinan being the highest level, the three already reaching the pinnacle of 5-stars.
Ke Lake patted on Jimmy’s shoulder, as a young generation genius at the Red Dragon tribe, Jimmy was nicknamed Jiru. Only 20 something years old and already reached the pinnacle of 5-stars. He had a very promising future.
“I’m going to go into the relic to scout with Han, you guys defend here. The moment the seal is removed and the gate activates, there is some chance that the dark beasts will try to rush out. So, when I’m not here, you guys can’t leave here for a second.” Ke Lake solemnly ordered.
“Don’t worry!” The 13 Guardians nodded. The majority of them were Red Dragon tribe and they all saw Ke Lake as their big brother, so everything was assured.
Han and Ke Lake took stance at the relic gate, and lightly nodded at Talin who stood beside the lever on the side.
The sealed door just opened up a gap, and Han and Ke Lake shot out through the narrow gap and went in!
