[ Your Dual-Element has increased by 0.03 ]
"Hah, that's the last one?"
Although I said I would spend the last day resting, I still didn't slack down as I did on the first day, I decided to finish using all of the Grade-1 crystals today and maybe try reaching the next layer if possible.
[ Dual-Element: 18.79 ]
However, even after expanding all of the Grade-1 crystals I was only able to increase my elemental stat by less than 5 points, as the effects of absorption lost another fifth of their potency…
So, since I still had time anyway, I took out a Grade-2 crystal and initiated the system absorption… or so I thought.
[ Warning! Any further intake of elements might overload your conductor's adaption! ]
[ as user's conductor consists of his whole body's cells, it's advised to stop the absorption immediately, if not the worst case scenario would be … ]
[Oi, oi, what are you doing, if you wanna seek death do it when you are alone! No need to drag me along!]
It seemed that Long had once again adapted another personality, as his fiery red scales started shining as if they were about to explode, it seemed like the unknown worst case scenario was quite severe…
"Can you calm down and explain a little?"
[what do you mean by calm down?! If you absorbed this crystal just now, you would have exploded just now, and looking at the density of your elemental condensation, there is a high chance an elemental storm would have broken out! Although you exploding won't cause me much harm, but an 'Elemental Storm' is something that I would like to avoid!]
"Ah, I see..."
It seemed like me absorbing over 100 crystals in the short span of 6 days and especially absorbing more than 30 today had some after effects, but the reason there were no such records about this danger in all the text I read about elemental practice would be…
'Was I about to drown in my own wealth?'
In the first case, there were also no records about someone absorbing more than 10 grade-1 crystals at a daily basis, most people, even wealthy heirs, geniuses supported by a whole sect or an organization, would at most use such rarity as elemental crystals at the rate of 1 crystal per day and that was the limit, as the crystals weren't cheap candy that could be eaten whenever, and most importantly absorption relying on one's own mental energy was a very exhausting task…
However, in my case, I basically had a mind-boggling amount of elemental crystals, and while it couldn't compare to the amount stored at the big organizations' treasury, it was all for my own use, unlike how resources needed to be divided between countless talents and warriors in organizations as they relied on numbers more than they depended individual strength.
Not only that, but I also had the system's absorption ability which made it possible for me to not tire after absorbing several crystals continuously… in the end, these two benefits almost caused my death and possibly the death of the brigade members near me if this 'Elemental Storm' was as terrifying as Long described it to be.
'I need to put some limitations to avoid similar dangers from now on…'
As to avoid pulling my own leg, and since I only had Grade-2 crystals left to use, I decided to limit my future absorption limit to 2 hours per day, which meant a limit of 4 crystals or 1 point if converted to its absorption results.
As for my plans for the rest of the day? since lazing was forced on me... then lazing in bed it shall be!
As unfortunate as it was for me to not break through to the next layer, it wasn't that bad, as it shouldn't take long relying on Grade-2 crystals even if I put limitations, that being said, I still had to put my focus on finishing the long awaited 'Class Trial' for now.
"So, are you three ready for this?"
The head of the Lightning Knight Brigade along with Flone, the girl I met when I first came here, and another black robed person that seemed to be encased by shadows, stood before me and the other two candidates and asked in a serious manner as soon as we stepped out of the HQ.
A hot-headed man who looked like he was at least 25, with red hair, and a slightly buff body, answered loudly.
"Yes." ( Ian )
A girl wearing an indigo robe who seemed to be lost in thought, mumbled as she nodded.
"Then let's go…"
"To the Trial Tower!"
