“Woah, these are nice!”
Han Xiao was overjoyed after reading through all the effects of these Character Summon Cards.
The quality of them was extremely high. They certainly matched up to those peak Beyond Grade As and the owner of a Super High Risk Esper Ability.
Kasuyi’s Character Summon Card was a pure attack ability with good base damage. Han Xiao’s Intelligence and Mystery totaled about 30,000, so the basic damage every instance would be about 50,000. Three instances every second meant that this ability would deal about 150,000 damage every second. The 170% Psychological Resistance penetration meant that it would drastically reduce the effectiveness of the target’s psychological barrier. If it was used on a weaker target, the damage might even be close to becoming True Damage.
If it was just a one-time attack, it would not be too big a deal. The powerful part of this Character Summon Card was that it would create a Psychic Current that would not easily dissipate. With good enough control, it would become a large-area AOE attack that dealt constant damage over time, which would add up to an enormous amount of damage.
Sierron’s Character Summon Card was also an attack ability. Unlike Kasuyi’s AOE ability, this was a single target ability. Not mentioning how powerful the Lethal Judge mechanic was, the True Damage dealt even if that failed was still very high. If this dealt the maximum 800,000 True Damage every single time, just two to three hits would send Psyker to see God.
However, this would not be effective against targets who had True Damage Immunity. If Sierron used this on Han Xiao, it would be the same as a tickle.
Han Xiao nodded. “The single target damage a peak Pugilist can deal is still quite incredible for normal Beyond Grade As.”
Gorutan’s Character Summon Card was an overall powerful buff that was very suitable for Pugilists. It was also quite good for Han Xiao, since it gave attribute bonuses and bonus health regeneration.
The one that surprised Han Xiao the most was Hila’s Character Summon Card. This was the upgraded effect of the [Death Immunity] talent, which was basically a chance to revive. Even though he was already extremely tanky, this Character Summon Card still gave his life another layer of security.
The shocking part was, this could be gifted to someone else, so that person would be immune to death one time as well.
Character Summon Cards were created from the characters, meaning that Hila had this ability. However, Han Xiao had seen her interface before, and she did not have the ability to give others a one-time use Death Immunity in the past.
“Could it be that this battle forced her potential out and made her awaken a new way to use her Esper Ability?”
This seemed quite possible.
During this battle, Hila had built a link with Aurora that ignored distance. Maybe this was partly the reason this ability appeared, which would explain why Hila did not have this ability in his previous life.
Outsiders could only accept this ability once and could not be revived by Hila indefinitely. Nonetheless, it would still mean one extra life, which was amazing for the Black Star Army’s officers.
“I used quite a number of Character Summon Cards. There’re still uses for Psyker, Ames, Mechanic Emperor, and Silver Shadow. The ones that are finished are only Perfect Mechanical Sense and Polar Channel Flow. I shall use the Blank Character Summon Card this time to restock the Perfect Mechanical Sense, so in the end, all I spent was Heber’s Character Summon Card. Receiving four more has made up for that.”
Han Xiao had a joyful expression on his face.
Character Summon Cards were just the appetizers, yet those already made him gain back the cost of the explosive power he used. The chance to draw abilities from the bonus mission was the main dish.
He suppressed his excitement and looked at the notifications on the interface.
Bonus mission requirements have been completed.
You have received bonus reward: Randomly draw an ability/talent from each Beyond Grade A captive.
He had captured five people this time—Tolaen, Womre, Jackornitz, Hades, and Gorutan—who were spread across Mage, Mechanic, Pugilist, and Psychic.
Although their average strength was not as high as those whose Character Summon Cards he had received, the abilities he would obtain would be permanent.
There were two noobs among these five, but at least they were Beyond Grade As, so there was a chance he would get something good.
“I have to leave the best to the last.”
Han Xiao decided to start drawing from the weakest.
He hesitated between Tolaen and Hades for a while before going with Hades.
Note: Hades is a Psychic. Part of the abilities/talents are adjusted according to your class.
Please select one from the five options below as the reward:
1. [Will Resistance]—Ability: +35% Abnormal Psychological State Resistance. Cost: 0. Cooldown: 160s.
2. [Calm and Relaxed]—Talent: +200 INT, +200 MYS.
3. [Energy Control Proficiency]—Talent: -25% Energy Cost.
4. [Psychological Barrier Enhancement]—Talent: +120% Psychological Resistance, +50% Abnormal Psychological State Resistance.
5. [Squeezing Style Energy Recovery]—Ability: By spending 20,000 – 50,000 health, recover the same amount of Energy and temporarily reduce Energy Cost by 15%. Cooldown: 330s.
Hades was a Psychic, so most of the options were related to psychic, which was expected.
Not receiving any powerful talents, Han Xiao was not discouraged and took it as a consolation prize.
He picked [Psychological Barrier Enhancement] without hesitation, which was not too bad.
Throughout the years, Han Xiao had been consciously making up for his weakness in the psychological field and had already obtained quite a high resistance. However, when he saw Kasuyi’s Character Summon Card earlier, he knew that his current Psychological Resistance was far from enough for someone like Kasuyi.
Since he had obtained a decent new Psychological Resistance talent, it was like filling up a gap for him.
After adjusting his thoughts, Han Xiao then continued to draw the next ability.
Note: Tolaen is a Mage. Part of the abilities/talents are adjusted according to your class.
Please select one from the five options below as the reward:
1. [High Level Energy Senses]—Talent: Increase your senses of all kinds of energy. You will be able to see more details the others aren’t able to see.
2. [Magic Insulation]—Ability: When receiving magic attacks, the actual damage you receive will be decreased by 22%. Magic type controlling abilities last 17% shorter on you.
3. [Super Overload]—Talent: Your body can endure an even greater load. Some buffs will last longer on you. +1,500 END, +15% maximum health.
4. [Skilled Melee Combat Techniques]—Talent: You know a ton of melee combat techniques. Your attacks will occasionally deal damage in an area. +34% Melee Damage, +20% Critical Rate, +28% Block Chance, +23% Dodge Chance, +300 DEX.
5. [Lightning Control]—Ability: Drastically increase Lightning and Electromagnetic Affinity.
“… Well, I guess a Demon Race Mage who doesn’t put points into melee combat isn’t a proper Mage.”
Han Xiao’s mouth contorted slightly.
Among the five options, [High Level Energy Senses] was basically an ability all Beyond Grade A Mages had to have, which was what made them able to capture any strange movements of energy. [Magic Insulation] and [Super Overload] were abilities only buff-type Mages like Tolaen had. His body had to endure the load from a large number of enchantments so that the buffs applied on him would last longer.
Without much hesitation, Han Xiao picked [Super Overload] directly. This was the most suitable for him, and its numbers were quite impressive.
The 1,500 Endurance points made up for the shortage in his Endurance. He just had to put some of his Free Attribute Points into Endurance for it to be above 15,000, and he would be able to receive one more God’s Trait Transformation Point every Promotion.
After this battle, Han Xiao had noticed that the important factor that made the difference between peak Beyond Grade As was the extent of their God’s Trait Transformation. Although his way of leveling up was different from the others, more God’s Trait Transformation Points would always be better.
Han Xiao drew from Womre third, which gave him something quite great.
[Cell Activity Expansion]—Talent: Through training, you have enhanced the activity of your cells, increasing the quantity of energy your cells can contain and efficiently make use of. With your character’s level increasing, your energy will gradually increase.
Lv1 – Lv100: +0.5% maximum energy, -1% Energy Cost, +2% Stamina Energy Conversion Efficiency every 10 levels; Lv100 – Lv200: +0.8% maximum energy, -1.5% Energy Cost, +4% Stamina Energy Conversion Efficiency every 10 levels; Above Lv200: +1.2% maximum energy, -2% Energy Cost, +6% Stamina Energy Conversion Efficiency every 10 levels.
Current total bonus: +27.4% maximum energy, -49% Energy Cost, +132% Stamina Energy Conversion Efficiency.
Han Xiao had his eyes on this ability instantly, mainly because of the increase in maximum energy.
His current energy was about 180,000, so his maximum energy would increase by about 50,000 instantly with this talent, and this was something he was short of.
Not only did this increase the limits of his health-energy conversion, it also increased his Energy Level by one rank, giving him a new level of bonus, which was basically the same as a few thousand Attribute Points.
This talent was a percentage bonus, so it had growth potential. To him, this was as powerful as half a Molding Talent.
Furthermore, cell activity was related to life span, so maybe this talent had the hidden effect of increasing his life span by one second.
The fourth target was Jackornitz. With the same class, there would be more abilities to choose from.
Mechanical Pugilists preferred to fight using supportive machinery, and they were good at the techniques of using those ‘tools’, so they had quite a few special talents.
The five options he got all had quite high quality. Most gave Machinery Affinity bonuses. Han Xiao hesitated for a while and made his choice.
[Machinery Control Master]—Talent: Machines that are enhanced by your Mechanical Force will receive the following bonuses: +120% Melee Damage, +24% Ranged Damage, +35% mechanical suit performance.
Although this talent was a Mechanic class talent, only Mechanical Pugilists would be able to awaken it usually, but Han Xiao had now obtained it.
Many Mechanical Pugilists’ abilities directly increased their efficiency in using their machines. This ability gave him a huge boost, and the melee damage of his mechanical army rocketed.
Furthermore, Han Xiao had tested it before and found out that the Mechanical Deity was a special assembled machine, but as its core had to be his main body or his Lord’s Avatar, it was considered a mechanical suit by the interface. This meant that it would receive mechanical suit related bonuses.
This way, the actual power of the Mechanical Deity would be increased drastically. It would have strength close to having two Perfect Mechanical Senses stacked together!
“This is good stuff. If I can get all those special talents of Mechanical Pugilists and Cannon Masters, the power of my mechanical army will probably multiply many times.” Han Xiao was drooling at the thought of it.
He then adjusted his emotions, took a deep breath, and clicked on the last target.
Tip: Gorutan is a Pugilist. Part of the abilities/talents are adjusted according to your class.
Please select one from the five options below as the reward:
1. [Energy Shock]—Ability: By using energy, shock the target and make the target enter a short stunned state.
2. [Micro-Molting]—Ability: Refresh yourself, dispel all debuffs. Cooldown: 400s.
3. [Energy Recycle Stream]—Talent: When melee attacks land, while dealing the same damage, you can recycle 40% of the energy used in your attacks.
4. [Block Penetration]—Talent: Even when the target has blocked your melee attack, they will still receive 30% – 80% damage.
5. [Polar Channel Flow—Blood Rage]—Ability: Through burning your health, you turn it into a special kind of blood energy. This increases your basic attributes, attack, Critical Rate, and ability strength, depending on the health you burn after every judgement. Duration equals the amount of time you burn your health for. After this ability ends, you’ll enter a state of weakness that lasts three times the duration of this ability.
