Chapter 105: The Only Man in the Imperial City
Right now, to Eddie, actual combat was more important than cultivation.
If he mastered the techniques of actual combat, not only could he defeat a stronger opponent despite his lower strength, he could even crush the opponent.
Back then, he had relied on his own tactics and used small spells to constantly harass the opponent to gain an advantage.
Although it was very childish, Eddie had learned the importance of actual combat after this battle.
A battle was not won simply because one was strong or skilled in magic.
Strength was very important, but the experience of actual combat was equally so. Magic scrolls and magic tools could often help in this regard.
Eddie hadn’t used these two things yet, because his spells were all instantaneous, and no magic scroll was as effective as instantaneous magic.
In addition, rather awakwardly, he didn’t even have a magic scroll with him, not to mention a good magic scroll.
It was not that he did not want to live off others. In reality, it was not so easy to live off others.
Happiness was something he should earn with his own hands!
He readjusted his emotions.
Eddie stood in front of the teleportation door.
“Miss Autumn, I want to enter the Trial Tower now.”
Eddie did not want to waste even a second. He only wanted to quickly enter the training.
Although the trial door had countless exquisite and mysterious magic patterns drawn on it, he wanted to continue no matter how difficult the road ahead was.
Only by becoming stronger could he protect the maidservants.
“My Lord, you want to go in now? Don’t you want to rest for a night?”
Though she said that, Autumn was the one who really wanted to rest.
She had made a trip to the Magic Academy with Thor and Hermione, and she had almost lost her soul there. Right now, she wanted to quickly lie down on the soft velvet bed and have a good sleep.
After all, they could challenge the Trial Tower at any time. There was no need to rush to do it in this one or two nights.
However, Autumn seemed to have underestimated Eddie’s attitude toward becoming stronger.
“Miss Autumn, I apply to enter the Trial Tower!”
Eddie looked at Autumn indifferently and said again.
Autumn, who was just about to stretch and relax, found Eddie’s serious expression somewhat interesting.
“My Lord, although I know that you’ve advanced quickly, there are 9 tiers in the Trial Tower.”
“With your tier 3 strength, you’ll just end up being teleported down after a few floors. Why are you in such a hurry? Don’t you need to rest for a night?”
Autumn was a veteran of the Trial Tower.
She knew that the days ahead would be long. So, telling Eddie to relax now was for his own good.
Autumn had good intentions.
However, Eddie did not think that this was the best way for him.
In less than a month after coming to this world, many events happened one after another. Goblin attacks, guards snatching perfume formulas and being forced to fight advanced mages were just a few examples.
If one did not have strength, they would feel defenseless when faced with these sudden events.
Even some of the weaker noble families would find it difficult to control their own fates.
Eddie had lived two lifetimes. How could he allow such a thing to happen?
Moreover, he wasn’t alone at the moment.
He looked at Emily, whose silver hair was shining under the moonlight. She was as beautiful as an angel under the moonlight.
Thor was cute, lively and mischievous, and yet she was the happy, easygoing one in the Imperial City.
There was also Hermione, who had a blank expression, but she seemed worried about him.
“I’m the only man in this imperial city.”
Eddie smiled, and then said with a firm look in his eyes.
“I apply to enter the Trial Tower!”
Eddie’s tone wasn’t loud, but when that incomparably serious energy was emitted from the mouth of a 14-year-old boy, it was so touching.
At this moment, everyone present knew the boy’s attitude.
He was serious!
If one had to ask, when did a boy start to grow into a man?
It was probably the moment he found a girl he wanted to protect.
Autumn felt Eddie’s attitude.
Looking at the boy who had a firm gaze in front of her, some memories and emotions flooded back to her.
“When your spiritual power explodes later, I can only hope you’ll still be as imposing as this.”
Although one used a clone formed by their spiritual power to enter the Trial Tower, if the clone was destroyed by the monsters in the Trial Tower, one’s body would suffer a certain backlash. The brain would usually enter a period of disorientation, before slowly recoverinb after resting for half a day or so.
In other words, one would be confused for half a day before recovering.
Eddie had never seen the power of the Trial Tower before, so he dared to say such ruthless words.
It wasn’t a good feeling to have one’s spiritual power explode. It was very uncomfortable, like getting punched in the face suddenly.
Very few people could say that they could endure it without fear.
Looking at Eddie, Autumn did not plan to tell him in advance.
She also wanted to see how this little Lord’s final performance was.
Eddie’s speech just now made her think of a person.
A man who once left her far behind in the Trial Tower.
But as usual, before entering the Trial Tower for the first time, Autumn had to explain the Trial Tower’s rules.
“The Trial Tower’s rules are actually very simple. After entering, the enemies will appear. As long as all the enemies are eliminated, you can enter the next level.”
“If you ‘die’ in the Trial Tower, it won’t cause any substantial damage to you. It will only consume your spiritual power, and then you will be forcefully teleported out.”
These were some of the basic rules of the Trial Tower.
“The magic power in the Trial Tower far surpasses the outside world. After passing through each level, there will be a certain amount of time for you to recover your spiritual power and magic power. This is also one of the reasons why many people are keen to challenge the Trial Tower. There are many benefits inside.”
“Whether it’s actual combat or magic power storage, if you can adapt, you will experience a very big improvement.”
Of course, the prerequisite for this the ability to adapt to conditions in the Trial Tower.
Many students with weak minds had never come again after experiencing their spiritual bodies being destroyed.
They had switched to studying potions or alchemy.
Clearly, having their spiritual bodies destroyed was definitely a very painful thing.
Autumn really hoped that Eddie would be able to persevere.
As for whether Eddie would be able to withstand it, Autumn was also doubtful.
After a pause, Autumn continued to explain.
“For every five levels, there will be a reward. You can choose your own reward.”
After roughly explaining, Autumn moved aside, revealing the trial door’s white magic vortex-like entrance.
After Eddie finished listening, he took a deep breath and looked at Autumn and the maidservant who was nervous for him. He could not help but smile.
“Don’t worry, your master is very strong.”
After saying that, he stood at the trial door’s entrance.
The slender figure disappeared into the door.
