Chapter 42

The crucial part would come when Abel placed the gem into the gap . Yes, once he did so, he would have to guide his own Power of the Will through the energy path .

There were only 2 exploding big swords and a scroll of Town Portal in Abel’s Horadric cube . During his battle with Simon the worgen, he used one exploding big sword, and he hadn’t made a new replica ever since . Luckily for him, if he failed this time, he could just throw the product into the Horadric and fuse the three swords into one big sword .

By this point, Abel gained a lot of experience when it came to guiding the force of the gem to the center of the rune . After about half an hour, however, this rune he drew didn’t seem strong enough to do the job . The outer strokes of the rune began to turn red, and soon it melted and vanished . After it had melted off, the power of the gem began to disappear as well .

It wasn’t like it was the first time that Abel had failed . Oddly enough, though, the problem seemed to be with the rune ink this time .

But it shouldn’t have been . When Abel was mixing the rune ink, it was shining in white sparkles, which meant that the ink formula was right .

Was it because the rank of the rune ink was not high enough? Was the gem simply too powerful? Abel evaluated for a bit . He was already using the best ingredients for the rune ink . It didn’t seem possible to find any better ingredients .

Abel kept on thinking . In the dwarf’s magical weapon forging guide, there was rune drawing instruction and rune ink formula for weapons of every attribute . Actually, not for the attribute-less runes . Abel could not figure out why . After all, they should be the easiest ones to make .

But actually, even the dwarfs could not help it . The ingredients required to make attribute-less rune ink were too hard to obtain for ordinary people . Hardly anyone apart from the wizards could supply them which was why the dwarves wouldn’t even bother putting it in their magical weapon forging guide .

Ordinary runes ink only drew its energy from one attribute source . However, these so-called attribute-less runes ink had multiple sources . In other words, it was a mixture of all the existing attributes . It was also much more potent than other types of runes . Therefore, normal ingredients for rune ink could not withstand it, and that’s why things like the runes strokes melting off had happened to Abel .

Abel took out the rune sign from his chest pocket . It was said that this sign could evoke the attacking power of an attribute-less rune, which meant that these attribute-less runes could be used . However, the only problem was that Abel didn’t know what kind of ink was used to write this rune . Furthermore, this rune seemed to be its source of energy . Since the rune was still visible in the sign, it had to be supported by some unknown energy that Abel was unaware of .

Abel had an idea . If the normal potion could be combined to make a potion of higher ranking, could he do the same with rune ink?

At that moment Abel felt a passion burning within him . If it was about the two exploding sword within his Horadric Cube, he wanted nothing more than to throw them somewhere far away . They were useless to Abel since all they did was waste space for him to make new things with the Horadric Cube .

After he had confirmed on his idea, he dug a deep hole outside the castle, and carelessly thew the two exploding sword inside .

BANG . It was like a walk in the park . Abel thought that he should’ve just done this earlier .

After Abel had returned to his workshop, he took out the Scroll of Town Portal from the Horadric cube, and carefully placed it in a metal box . These are the most important possessions of Abel . If he wasn’t in need of combining something, Abel would often keep the Scroll of Town Portal in the Horadric Cube . That way both of these treasures could stay in the same spot and be safe .

Abel took out some more ingredients . He made 3 attribute-less ink according to the formula and threw them into the Horadric Cube straight away . In a flash of white light, these 3 rune ink disappeared without a trace . In the top left corner of the Horadric Cube, a new bottle of the rune ink began to appear .

It was a success . This opened up a large potential for things Abel could do with the Horadric Cube in the future . But little did he know, the value of this rune ink was so much higher than most things available for purchase in this world . The dwarves would be willing to trade countless exotic gems for something like this .

Abel picked up this new bottle of rune ink and dumped it into a darkness style crystal bottle . The bottle was shimmering in blue sparkles . From past experience of combining potions, Abel knew that this was an intermediate rune ink, and all the ones he had used before were all basic levels .

Abel took out an almost finished modal of a sword of a hundred skills and began to draw the rune on it straight away . He had gained experience in drawing this rune from the last attempt, so this time it was a lot faster . However, using intermediate rune ink required a lot more power of the will . After he had completed, he once again felt that knees weakening lethargic feeling, it reminded him of the time where he drew his first rune .

Abel rested for a while . As soon as his power of the will was recovered, he immediately placed a gem into the sword handle . He then used his Power of the will again and guided the energy from the gem to the rune .

This time, Abel was actively guiding the energy throughout the rune . It wasn’t like he had full control of it, however . He did not expect the speed of the energy to travel so fast . A large amount of it shot out from the gem towards Abel’s power of the will, like a car speeding on a highway . Luckily, Abel reacted on time . He also sped up his reflex in using the Power of the Will, and almost finished the guiding process with a little less than ten minutes .

Abel’s eyes were fully fixed on the magic sword in front of him . It was shimmering in blue sparkles, but it was not the type of blue from those ice magic swords . If you looked at it carefully, you would notice it was actually the same blue sparkles as the bottle of intermediate rune ink .

The blue sparkles swam around in the strokes of the rune for a while, and slowly faded away . Abel stared at this magic sword in his hand .

“These blue sparkles . Does it mean that this magic sword had a higher rank than all the other ones?” Abel thought to himself .

No one could give him a straight answer for that . Up to this point, Abel had been the only one who was doing the investigating and experimenting .

Abel waved this attribute-less magic sword around . It felt just like the normal ones, and its uses should be the same as well .

He then chopped up some firewood with the sword . Again, it felt just like all his other swords . Nothing special really happened .

Abel put the Scroll of Town Portal back into his Horadric Cube and left the operation room caring for his new magic sword .

“Have you seen the Knight of Marshall?” Abel stopped and asked steward Lindsey, who was busy with his own tasks .

“Young Master, the headmaster was in the training room,” Lindsay replied, to which Abel thanked him and headed for the training room .

The butler Lindsey smiled as he watched Abel walked away . He was very proud of this young master . With only 13 years of age, Abel was unlike other noble youngsters who only cared about living a lavish lifestyle . Everyone knew that Abel was a genius but who knew just how much effort and dedication this young master had put into his work .

Steward Lindsay had seen many noble youngsters throughout the years, and none of them had the dedication of young master Abel . After the young master became a Master Blacksmith, all he did throughout the days were making things in his workshop .

Not many people other than Steward Lindsey knew about this . Also, not a lot of people knew that the Knight of Marshall’s favorite ice magic sword, the castle savior Harry’s bow and the two gigantic bear trap that captured a few giant beasts trying to enter the castle, were all handiworks made directly from the young master himself .

Maybe when Abel had become an adult, Harry’s knight estate would already become Harry’s Lord estate . WIth Abel in the house, there was no limit in the potential he could bring to those around him .

Abel, on the other hand, didn’t seem too concerned about what Lindsay was thinking . Now, all that he could think about was to test the new magic sword with the Knight of Marshall .

The moment when Abel had entered the training room, he could already hear the sound of a big sword slicing through the air . It seemed like the Knight of Marshall was practicing his basics .

Abel did not interrupt the man . Instead, he simply watched from the side and wait for the Knight of Marshall to finish .

The Knight of Marshall was practicing the basics . Yes, the basics, but Abel could feel the impact of the swings from several meters away . The Knight of Marshall was putting his entire strength into his swings, which was contradictory to the “never go all out rule” he had often heard on earth .

While he continued to watch the Knight of Marshall practicing his moves, Abel started imagining inside his head . He began to imagine what would happen if he was standing in front of the Knight of Marshall .
