Upon reading all their base class skills, Riveting Night was more than shaken . As much as she wanted to individually assess and understand their skills, she understood that she'd be able to get a better handle in a combat situation .  

Thinking like this, she had an idea .  

"Now that you have all classed up, you will follow me to a dungeon so that I can assess your combat effectiveness . " She commanded .  

The others shared a look of excitement . After having their power greatly buffed like this, a battle was exactly what they needed so that they could flex themselves and earn Riveting Night's praise! 

As such, Riveting Night led them out of the Guild Hall and towards the entrance . As always, there was a wealth of players standing there, but all of them were currently staring dazedly at something before them .  

This was naturally the announcement from the system that Sublime Notion and Rina were going for .  

「Boundless System-wide Announcement 

Players Sublime Notion, Eye Patch, Quiet Blade, Alpha Male, Gentle Lamb, Rambunctious Buttlover, Dreary Traveler, Slim Fatty, Warm Spring, Silent Walker, Loving Aunt, Jada, Jade, Akainu, Sanji, Deployed Soldier, Happy Saint and Noble Writer have simultaneously obtained Legendary classes and well as reaching Rank 2 .  

Guild Umbra obtains the title 'Guild of Legends' . This is one of the 10 greatest accolades!」 

Many players were shaken by this . Umbra had done something that should be beyond impossible, which was to have almost all their core members acquire Legendary classes at once, while also jumping to Rank 2 .  

Currently, the average player was still trying to reach level 40, much less thinking about Ranking Up . As the number 1 player guild, Umbra more than lived up to its resounding reputation .  

The old players already knew of Umbra's excellence, but the new ones had been doubtful . The First Player Auction had demonstrated that Umbra boasted great wealth and good connections, but the actual power of the members had remained a bit obscure .  

After seeing this announcement though, all players understood that they were fundamentally playing a different game . If they were playing a competitive MMORPG with a high difficulty, Umbra was playing a single-player game at the recruit difficulty .  

Those outside the Guild Hall removed their focus from the announcement and watched the core members of Umbra exiting . Their hearts shook greatly as they felt their auras and saw their changes, especially for Silent Walker, Dreary Traveler, Warm Spring, Loving Aunt, Noble Writer, and Happy Saint who manifested the most visible outward changes .  

Instantly, many players opened the photo mode and took pictures of the supreme line up that was Umbra's core members . These photos were snapped on impulse, but these players here had no idea how much value these pictures would have in the future .  

Riveting Night led them to the Portal Center, aiming to teleport them to their destination . However, before she did so, she realized there were some things she had failed to account for after their Class Ups, which was the fact that everyone had had enough experience to Rank Up once, except Rina .  

As such, they each got 2 new class skills and some slightly different stats . Riveting Night quickly reopened the information they had sent her and pressed on the small arrow pointing right to see their Rank 2 information .

Their stats hadn't changed much, it was pretty uniform throughout . Their exp gain rate had been reduced while their Rank Up difficulties had been increased .  

Apart from Warm Spring who went from 500% to 400%, the rest had lost about 20-30% of their exp gain compared to when they were at Rank 1 . As for their difficulties, Warm Spring had the lowest increase from 1% to 10% while the others had increased by 20-40% .  

Riveting Night noted this before entering the Portal Center with the others in tow . She chose to go to the Drevish Divine Empire's territory, and their specific destination was one of the mid-tier cities there called Grego City .  

Once they arrived in the town, they were shown a very different scene from usual . The Drevish Divine Empire was a non-human one, mostly lead by Hobgoblins, Gnomes, and Halflings .  

Grego City was a bustling one, this one mid-tier city being even larger than Cario City which was a high-tier one in the Sturgehaven Kingdom . Then again, one was a Divine Empire and the other was an ordinary Kingdom, so was there even a need to compare? 

The style of housing here was quite strange, with small tent-like homes made of a mixture of stone, wood, and cut-tiles . The shapes were not cubical, but sometimes triangular, sometimes rectangular, and - bizarrely - sometimes cylindrical .  

Well, it was a bit much to expect the other races to share the same aesthetical taste as humankind .  

On the streets there were many goblins, humans, elves, dwarves, gnomes, and halflings wondering about on their own business . Just because it was a city in a non-human empire didn't mean that other races could not enter .  

On the contrary, all Divine Empires had such scenes as different races came through to enjoy their facilities and amenities . To a Divine Empire, what was most important was not the race of the residents by their patronization .  

In other words, most Divine Empires were cosmopolitan in nature, so one would never see a uniform and stale scene when inside their borders .
