The capital city in front of Marcus was enormous, and he couldn't see the end of it as it extended over the horizon. Coming closer to it he felt oppressed by the size of the city walls high for hundreds of meter and thick for at least thirty. City walls of Hundred Temples city are nothing in comparison.
Entering the city, Marcus saw an endless sea of people; he used to believe that Hundred Temples city was busy. Now he understood how little he saw.
Because of so many people, the carriage slowed down by a lot, and it took an entire hour to get to the Hunters Guild headquarters. The building was much more magnificent than the one in the Hundred Temples city.
This was their objective in the capital city, Cheng Gang gave him a letter of recommendation, and with it, he will be given a chance to enter Hunters Guild training program at World Tree Academy.
During his trip, he learned many things, and his strength also had a significant boost.
Muscle strength: 22
His energy was strong enough to rival rank seven spiritual beasts or stage seven human experts. His physical body was lagging behind, and his progress became slower and slower every day, but with hard work, he now can equal rank five experts with his physical strength alone.
Marcus also learned energy wave sonar, an advanced version of energy wave scanner. It will detect all life forms in an area of 250 meters around him and tell him the strength they have. He also started construction of lightning armor pathway. It will allow him to exhibit the same armor he did in Hundred temples city, but it won't give him the boost in strength that allowed him to rival stage eight expert. It also doesn't have any defensive capabilities; it was a purely offensive skill.
This new lighting armor will let him attack from every point of his body covered in lightning. It will make him able to fight multiple enemies at the same time because it didn't matter where they will attack from he can always counter. Additionally, every time he will be hit, the armor will deal some damage to the enemy upon contact.
The only problem is that after almost two months it's still not complete. He will need at least one more month to finish it. And if he wants to put a coil around it will take at least a year. This is because of the complexity of the pathway. It looks like tree branches coming out of his core and connecting to his skin. Since it had to cover his whole body, and currently, he finished legs, torso and half of his arms, with only the forearms and his head to cover. But those two will be unique; he will have to create a shape that won't cover his mouth nose and eyes, his forearms he wants to modify it so he can use them more actively for the offensive.
In his palms, he will create a semicircle that ends go to his knuckles. The effect will be that first he will be producing the rest of the circle with his energy outside his hands. He can already use it like this, every one of his punches will be able to destroy everything that it touches.
It may be a bit of exaggeration, but it will still be impressive. The lighting will be dealing damage with every contact that his fists make. But this was not the end of Marcus's plans with this. his goal is to change that circle into a blade by controlling his energy. At that point, it will be a thin blade made out of plasma current. And that will be a powerful weapon able to kill anyone.
But with his current control of energy, he is only able to create the circle at his knuckles. It will take him a long time before he can make a plasma sword.
Cracking his neck, Marcus calmed down his excitement from thinking about the future and focused on the entrance of the hunters guild.
Walking in, Marcus saw many people in armors or distinguished clothes, parts of spiritual beasts were everywhere, members of staff were checking their quality and negotiated the prices with the hunters.
At the very back of the hall was a reception desk, there Marcus saw a middle-aged man in simple clothes.
It can't be. Right? But it's too similar.
Marcus was not sure. Situations like this tend to happen to happen to him quite often. But there is no way.
Sigh... we will see.
Marcus walked up to the counter and looked at the man. Seeing Marcus looked back at him and asked.
"What do you want?"
He is now sure. This man is a guild leader. Sigh... what is going on here? Es?
"It's just a coincidence."
"Are you the guild leader?"
Wanting to make sure his prediction was correct, Marcus asked. And the surprised expression on the man's face confirmed it. Es I know you are not telling me everything, one day I will get it out of you.
"How do you know? I don't show myself to the public often."
"I guessed it. Well... let's not think about it, I'm here with the recommendation letter from Branch leader Cheng Gang."
Taking the letter from his pocket, Marcus put it on the counter. Still surprised Guild leader held the letter and read it. Nodding from time to time, surprise and disbelieve went through his face.
Finishing his lecture guild leader closed his eyes. It was apparent that he was deciding on what to do.
Not knowing what was going through guild leader mind Marcus started to get nervous. Is he going to reject him? Is he not good enough?
Opening his eyes guild leader stood up and spoke.
"Follow me; I will first test you my self."
