＃When he returned, the family was ruined (272)
That is why Yonginhwa was a great skill. The body size of a typical dragon race was enough to surpass that of a decent knight. Even more so if it is the body of a ruler.
It was to the point where it couldn’t even be compared to that of a human. Of the two, the one with the higher realization rate was the Duke. He formed a vague shape and punched out his fist.
The surrounding air exploded in all directions. It was bloody power. Overwhelming durability and great power. The tyrant’s body boasted the best compatibility for a martial artist. Duke looked at his arm as if he recognized it at a glance and nodded with satisfaction.
Marquis Lionel also began to adapt to his changed body. He smiled broadly as he swung the sword back and forth.
“It may be difficult to control, but its power is amazing! “Thank you very much, Duke.”
“Right now it may be just one arm, but as I continue to practice, I will be able to create more than just both arms and other body parts.”
“How far can the work be implemented?”
For an instant, mana swirled through Ethan’s body. His body began to reorganize in an instant. Everything from both arms to shoulders, chest, thighs, knees and feet. The two people who saw that scene widened their eyes.
“Huh! Is it possible to implement the whole body? It must not have been an easy task…”
“Once I did it, it worked.”
The reason the tyrant’s body was only used up to both arms so far was because the vibration method was also implemented. Without the vibration method, Ethan could embody the whole body as that of a tyrant.
However, because it is much more powerful to use the vibration method together, a difficult training method was chosen. It may be difficult at first, but as time passes, your body and your level will gradually grow.
Someday, I will be able to configure my entire body like a tyrant and even use my immortal body together.
When that time came, I was confident that even if the religious leader came, I would not be easily defeated. Even if it is only for a short period of time, you will be able to use power close to absolute power.
As such, vibrating and Yonginhwa were very high-level technological systems.
‘The amount of mana consumed is a problem, but…’
Even though the two skills were implemented together, the shape became so familiar that it was not shaken. However, the problem was the amount of mana consumed as it was devoured like an anglerfish. By becoming a transcendental person, he had enough mana to be considered great, but even that was not enough.
That was a problem that couldn’t be solved even with elixirs. The mana hall itself has already become so huge.
It would be fortunate if the elixirs available on the market could have as much of an effect as on the eyes. There was now only one way to increase the insufficient mana. hour. Mana had a habit of gathering from places with low to high concentration.
The transcendental body was the place with the highest concentration. As time passes, the amount of mana will gradually increase. This was the reason why the amount of mana of older transcendents was particularly high.
Of course, there was a way to shorten that time. The goal was to find an area rich in mana and train. For example, in places such as the interior of a major forest.
‘It might be a little difficult now.’
If you train in such a place, mana will accumulate faster than in a city center. Even so, what would have taken twenty years is simply shortened to about ten years.
It was highly likely that demon dragons would already be ruling the world in that amount of time. Since I have no intention of becoming a natural person, I gave up that idea a long time ago.
In any case, mana was one of Ethan’s biggest weaknesses.
‘It would have been great if the efficacy of the Eight Pillars had continued to be maintained.’
By collecting eight pills, it was possible to accumulate more than four times as much mana. However, Palhwan was a production and had some limitations.
It is an item that cannot contain infinite mana. After becoming a transcendental person, the limitations of the Eight Hwans were clearly felt.
Four times the existing mana.
I was able to capture it up to that point.
The problem came from the growth of the mana hole itself.
As the hall grows, the capacity of the eight rings must increase accordingly, but perhaps because it already contains too much mana, the eight rings cannot contain any more mana.
Of course, I knew that this alone was a great piece. Because it was an artifact that had a great influence on the power of the Transcendant. Even so, I couldn’t help but feel disappointed.
‘Is there any way to strengthen it?…’
Among all the heads of the family, there is probably no one who has not thought about this at least once. They must have realized this problem after becoming transcendent.
That said, it didn’t seem like they were actively trying to solve this problem. He must have already gained a lot of mana from the Eight Rings, and that alone would have overwhelmed other transcendents.
If only the vibration type had been used, Ethan wouldn’t have thought about it so desperately. That’s because the mana consumption was enough to handle with just one pill.
‘The initial intention of production was probably to be an item for transcendents.’
The mana consumption of the vibration type must have been calculated, and it was highly likely that the Eight Rings were created to complement it.
‘Anyway, acceptance is the problem.’
It was a problem that arose as I stretched out my hands in various ways to gain more and more strength.
Is there any way to strengthen the Eight Pillars? If that were the case, each time the mana increased, it would continue to increase arithmetically by five times.
As I thought about it again and again, I continued to guide the two. It was a bonus that the potion was generously given to me. In any case, he had perfectly embodied the body of a tyrant, and he still had quite a lot of potions left.
At least the next three will be able to embody the tyrant’s body in this way.
The teaching continued like that all day. It was a short period of time, but perhaps because they are transcendental people, they got used to it faster than anyone else.
When dawn broke the next day, the two had advanced to the point where they could embody the tyrant’s body in their arms.
‘Heidern’s power has increased.’
If you completely master Yonginhwa, you will be able to display twice as much power as your existing power.
“Thank you, Duke.”
“It was a worthwhile time.”
The two people bowed their heads. Regardless of age, the current Ethan was like a teacher. Moreover, he invested quite a bit. Didn’t he hand over a potion made of the tyrant’s body? It was a treasure that couldn’t be bought for a thousand dollars.
If it weren’t for that potion, no matter how much Ethan demonstrated, he wouldn’t have been able to create a body so successfully. Because there was a huge difference between what I had experienced and what I had not experienced.
Therefore, this was a difficult skill to pass on even to the immediate descendants of the family.
That’s why the two people bowed their heads deeply.
Ethan shook his head.
“There is nothing to be thankful for. “I just acted like this because I also want something.”
“What do you want? “As long as it doesn’t inconvenience Your Majesty, I will do anything to help.”
“You just need to protect Heidern.”
Lionel was silent for a moment at those words.
“…is that really all it takes?”
“Isn’t Heidern going to be engulfed in fire because of me? So at least I helped protect my body.”
“No, even if a war breaks out, it won’t be because of the duke. If a guy called Demon Dragon had that kind of ambition, it would have happened at some point anyway. “Don’t you think so, Duke?”
“As long as Heidern doesn’t bow down to the dragons, it will definitely happen. But bowing your head might not be a good idea. In the end, isn’t it like putting the people into their jaws? So my son-in-law has absolutely no need to feel guilty about this.”
“Haha, are you already in a relationship like that?”
“Ah, Dorothy, is there anyone else as worthy of a duke as that child’s husband?”
“Well, the reality is that if you are Duke Ethan, other young people don’t even notice you.”
Give or take, the two of them were naturally leading the conversation in one direction.
“I’m sorry, but I have no particular intention of getting married yet.”
“I know you’re busy. You’ll probably have to get a lot done. But won’t we have to start a family someday? “If all this is over and the world becomes peaceful.”
Lionel, who was nodding at Duke’s words, looked at Ethan and asked.
“I don’t think I intend to remain unmarried for the rest of my life… I’m saying this out of old age, but that would be a great disrespect to the ancestors of the family. “It must be the same.”
“Ah! The Marquis spoke well. “Is it because the head of the family neglected the issue of an heir?”
“…I’ll think about it. But to be honest, if you ask me if I have a rational crush on Dorothy… I’m not sure.”
I felt it when I taught classes at the academy. He was a bright and lively child. If there was anything more to it than that, it wasn’t it.
Duke responded immediately as if he had figured out the number.
“At least I don’t hate it. Originally, a relationship between a man and a woman starts from the first step. If you live for a long time, things that weren’t there before will naturally appear. “Our Dorothy may not have the same talent as Lee Sera, but at least she doesn’t lack the demeanor of a hostess.”
“You have a lot of time, so take your time and think about it. “I’m not trying to force busy people, so don’t feel pressured.”
Having said all that, it would be a lie if I said it didn’t feel a little burdensome.
However, it was also like cutting it out and throwing it away. If I were to make an excuse, I would have to say that I already had someone in mind, but I doubted that the Duke would easily back down. Hasn’t he already shown solidarity with the Turian Marquis?
Even if it were two instead of one, I might have smiled and nodded. In fact, the moment you say it’s okay and take him with you, the problem will become more complicated.
If you refuse even that, it may feel like an insult.
Duke, who saw Ethan’s stiff face, scratched his head as if he was troubled.
“You too… will be in trouble. I understand. But, Dorothy, the child has already fallen in love with you. I’ve been singing all day asking when I’ll be able to see your face. “As a father, I can’t just watch.”
For what reason?
I can’t really think of a reason why.
“If you don’t like it, it can’t be helped. In that case, I will leave cleanly. But isn’t it just that I don’t have a clear crush on you yet?”
“Then I think it’s better to at least give it a chance. Do you know anything? Could this be a match made in heaven? If you still don’t feel like it, I’ll just give up. “A marriage without love only brings misfortune.”
In the end, I nodded. I thought it might be better that way.
“I will make time later when I have more time.”
In my previous life, I died without ever having a proper relationship.
On the contrary, in this life, there were already three women who rushed to him saying they liked him. They were all women who lacked everything.
It felt a little complicated.
