Game of Apocalypse - Chapter 9
Chapter 9 Advancement
Odin was about to leave after he crashed out of Senior Annie’s body but he saw a message appear in front of him.
【Escaped from Vengeful Spirit, Constitution -0.1, Mental +0.2】
A thought appeared in Odin’s heart when he saw this. He abandoned the thought of escaping, instead, he turned around and stormed at Senior Annie.
Senior Annie did not imagine Odin would storm at her, she lunged forward almost colliding with Odin.
Odin had a physical body while Senior Annie is a spirit being. Even if they collided, nothing would happen. Odin passed through Senior Annie’s body and felt his entire body chilled as though diving into an icy cave in the middle of winter.
However, another message appeared and this made Odin reveal a hint of joy.
【Escaped from Vengeful Spirit, Constitution -0.1, Mental +0.2】
Odin could not care much and immediately used his EXP on the Crow God’s three professions.
“Advance to Spirit Warlock.”
As Odin secretly muttered in his heart, he felt his head being hit by something. If not for his good Mental, he might have fainted on the floor.
【Spent 300 EXP. Advancing to Spirit Warlock… Detected profession requires Mental 2.0! Requirement satisfied! Began advancing!】
Only did Odin understand why Spirit Warlock required 2.0 of Mental. 9 out of 10 would have heavily injured or died under this powerful mental strength.
The next moment, Odin heard all kinds of weird voices in his brain. These voices came from his surroundings, some claimed to be trees and plants, some also claimed to be a weapon and even his bed had a spirit. From this point, the things Spirit Warlock had to handle were really odd.
【Advanced to Spirit Warlock! Mental +1! Acquired skills: Astral Projection, Spirit Capture, Soul Communication.】
Odin did not have time to carefully look at this and only cast a glance at the message. Then, he pounced at Senior Annie.
Just as he pounced, his hands turned translucent as if able to capture spirit beings.
At this moment, Senior Annie could not help but scream, “This is impossible, how do you know Spirit Capture?”
Odin instantly realized what happened. Senior Annie had an extraordinary profession and even successfully became Spirit Warlock under the Crow God. This was her using Astral Projection to attack him.
Odin understood the distance between him and Senior Annie. Without any thought, he immediately grabbed her neck.
This time he did not have the feeling of dipping his hand into icy water anymore and he easily grabbed Senior Annie’s neck
Then, he instinctively yanked Senior Annie’s spirit body, and countless methods of sealing and dealing with spirit beings flashed through his mind.
Some of the most direct methods were to seal it in his body, directly destroy it, forcefully absorb it, seal it inside a crystal, or use it to craft all kinds of items, weapons, etc.
After Odin grasped Senior Annie’s neck, several thoughts popped into his mind and he simply picked up the ink bottle he used and stuffed her inside.
Then he tightly closed the bottle cap, Odin’s hand kept making gestures on the ink bottle. Every gesture would leave some strange runes on the ink bottle.
These were the runes used for sealing a spirit. An ordinary Spirit Warlock required at least several months of time to learn this.
However, after Odin advanced successfully, the ability of Spirit Warlock had been inserted into his mind. Everything he used was on instinct.
Senior Annie was still planning to escape and did not imagine she was unable to escape after being stuffed inside the ink bottle. She kept howling in the ink before gradually merging with the ink and never moving again.
After completing all of this, Odin finally sat on his bed. He heaved out a sigh of relief with one hand holding the ink bottle and another holding the bed stand. He had some time to look at the matters in his profession.
【Spirit Warlock—— Communicate or capture spirit beings. Through Astral Projection, able to explore the spirit world, communicate with spirits, possess someone to answer questions, capture spirit beings, using spirits to craft items and strengthen oneself.】
Seeing this information, Odin knew how Spirit Warlock worked.
Spirit Warlock’s abilities were not applied to the physical body but to the soul. He could move freely using Astral Projection like how Senior Annie did. She could move freely between the spirit world and the real world and disguise herself as a vengeful spirit to ambush the enemy.
At the same time, he could communicate with some spirit beings. For example, if the voice Odin heard was from a spirit being, he was able to communicate with it.
When Odin caught Senior Annie, he was unsure where to seal her up. It was the bed that told Odin there was a nice-looking ink bottle that it could not see through. Only then did Odin seal her inside.
This sealing ability naturally came from the Spirit Capture. Moreover, it was more effective for a Spirit Warlock with a physical body to capture the spirit. Perhaps this was due to the rules of this profession.
The last skill, Soul Communication, was a type of soul skill. It allowed one to directly communicate with humans or spirit beings using one’s heart without opening one’s mouth and the speed of communication was fast.
However, Spirit Warlock had some disadvantages. All of his three skills had some issues each.
After using Astral Projection, the body would slowly lose its vitality. If not preserved properly, it could only last for at most seven days. Furthermore, the spirit could not leave too far from the body, or else the spirit’s power would gradually weaken. Just like Senior Annie was unable to directly kill Odin, it was obvious to see the problem within it.
Spirit Capture also had a similar problem. This skill was not an offensive skill, it could only capture spirits and seal them. In addition, Soul Communication allowed others to detect one’s position.
The Level 1 Spirit Warlock did not have any offensive power at all.
This was a piece of bad news for Odin. Judging from the sudden appearance of Senior Annie, he really was targeted by the Black Death Society.
This time is Senior Annie, what about next time?
Odin needed to look for offensive skills to protect himself.
Just as Odin was looking through his attribute window, he saw the other two Crow God’s information still remained after he advanced. Moreover, the EXP required changed from 300 to 600.
