- Chapter 38 - Badge from the Ancient Ones
Edward tidied up his dust-covered face and walked out of the residential area towards the registration area.
After squeezing past numerous wizards, Edward arrived at the venue of the tournament.
This was the registration area for the Ancient Ones, as well as the venue for the selection competition.
The apprentices on the stage used their voice to report the names of the guests.
Edward held the Alchemist No. 2 token and waited silently. It was not the alchemy group’s turn yet.
About a minute later, the voice of the Apprentice Wizards sounded again!
“Alchemist Selection Competition No. 1 to No. 4, please enter!”
There was an uproar among the wizards who had yet to enter.
They did not expect to see an alchemist in Ouroboros!
There were even four of them!
Edward thought to himself: Wasn’t four too few?
There was nothing he could do about it. His knowledge of alchemists was limited to what he knew about traveling wizards from a thousand years ago. Despite the changing times and the progress decrease in alchemists, he did not expect there to be so few!
After a few days of frantic scouting, Edward knew that the Eye of Storms could not be considered the most prosperous place in the Central Continent, but it was also an overlord in the southwest area.
It occupied one-eighth of the Central Continent’s territory!
Edward walked into the competition venue with the number in his hand under everyone’s amazed gazes.
The other three alchemists were already standing here.
One of them looked to be an old man in his 80s, while the other two were relatively younger. Judging by their appearance, they were not over 30 years old.
There was also the inspector in charge of the assessment ahead!
The competition venue they were in was very vast, and there were ten test tables placed on the table. All kinds of instruments were placed neatly, and there was also a complete set of potion ingredients!
“Everyone, I really didn’t expect that there would be four alchemists in the recruitment of the Ancient Ones this time, but we still have to abide by the rules.” A young examiner took a step forward and said regretfully, “I originally wanted to recruit all of you, but the rules only allow one person—the winner of this competition!”
“The Ancient Ones Association treats the alchemists very well. We have all the funds, materials, and anything you want. So, everyone, work hard!”
After he finished speaking, a tall platform slowly rose up, and the examiner sat in the middle of the table. On both sides were two elderly men, their eyes shining with wisdom.
They were the only two high-level alchemists in the Ancient Ones’ organization!
After receiving the news that there were four alchemists participating in the competition, they used the teleportation formation to arrive at the Eye of Storms overnight!
“I’m sure everyone is well aware of the rules. Let’s begin now. Through the raw materials placed on your table, you’ll make a potion that we’re most satisfied with. Also, the one with the highest value will win!”
Edward was deep in thought. Was this competition based on points? It was scored based on the effects, quality, and usefulness of the potions!
Following his command, Edward chose the alchemy table at the outer edge, where he could best perform.
Although they did not mention the rules of the test, he naturally understood it. Apart from cheating with an already finished potion, what else could he not do?
That was why Edward was standing so far away from the rest.
“System, check the materials in front of me and analyze the most useful and perfect formula!”
Edward did not recognize many of the materials provided.
But it did not matter if he recognized it or not, as long as his system recognized it.
As for the techniques required, Edward had not practiced them for nothing. With the help of the system, he would definitely win!
As the flame below the alchemy platform ignited, it represented the start of the competition.
The four contestants released four different kinds of spiritual power at the same time. Everyone took out their secret techniques.
Spiritual power was the key to influencing each other. If four different types of spiritual power exploded at the same time, it would definitely have a significant impact. This was also a test for alchemists, a test of their spiritual power!
Edward’s spiritual power burst forth, and the other three widened their eyes as though they had seen a ghost.
Did this old fellow live for thousands of years?!
How could such powerful spiritual power exist!?
At this moment, one of the competitors’ alchemy table exploded. He had been so shocked by Edward’s spiritual power that he had forgotten about it.
The remaining two—an old man and a young man—wore bitter expressions.
They felt hopeless about the situation.
How were they supposed to compete like this?
The three examiners also realized that something was wrong with the contestants, but a competition was a competition. As long as they did not take out the finished product to trick them, they would not care even if someone died.
The two alchemists gritted their teeth and freed themselves from Edward’s restraint, focusing on making their potions!
[System prompt: The materials have been analyzed. You can concoct a double-element combination potion, Boiling Potion!]
Edward made his move after receiving the prompt.
A few minutes later, the eyes of the old man sitting at the side lit up as he muttered in disbelief, “What kind of terrifying talent is this? The control of the dual elements is simply superb. Even I would need to expend a lot of energy!”
“Look, that alchemist’s movements are unbelievably skilled. I suspect that the Meditation Potion that appeared in the past few days was refined by this kid!”
The three examiners were immediately attracted by Edward’s actions. Two of them were master-level alchemists, while the other was an apprentice alchemist. They stared intently at Edward’s every step.
Finally, they confirmed the level of the potion that he wanted to refine!
The Boiling Potion that required a high-level combination of water and fire elements!
Were young people nowadays so good at alchemy?!
The two types of dual-element combination potions were not only a matter of quality, but also a manifestation of his powerful spiritual power control!
How many fire elements did a single drop of water element need to fuse with? One wrong move and all of his efforts would be wasted.
This was also the reason why it was called the Boiling Potion!
But it was a test for high-level alchemists!
For the past three hours, the three examiners had been staring at Edward without paying any attention to the two ordinary alchemists!
As the white fog dissipated, the match ended!
The old man steadied his trembling heart and looked at the three bottles of potions on the table: Boiling Potion, Cleansing Potion, and Frenzy Potion.
“Edward Feylan, congratulations on joining the Ancient Ones!”
With a twitching smile on his face, the old man helped Edward deliver the badge and sheepskin contract that belonged to the Ancient Ones.
“Now please, Mr. Edward…”
