In the past 7 days after reaching level 70 in Blacksmithing, Draco had made just over a thousand different pieces of equipment, all at the Semi-Legendary level. This meant that in total, he had made around 1,728 pieces of armor. 

When one remembered that his enchantments were powered by Aether Crystals, one could not help but wonder where he got them from. However, was such a thing even really a question? 

Draco produced 4 of them per hour, and it has almost been two months since he last checked his gross total. If one assumed that 45 days had passed since his last check, it meant that he would have over 4,300 new Aether Crystals. 

Even more mindboggling was the fact that he only produced top-grade Aether Crystals while in the Treasury. Since his Legendary Enchantments only consumed medium-grade Aether Crystals at best, it could be seen that he was truly wealthy. 

Most Enchantments only needed 1 or 2 medium-grade Aether Crystals. It was only when he added the 'Eternal Growth' rune that the consumption spiked to around 12 to 15 medium-grade Aether Crystals. 

Draco had not spent even a full top-grade Aether Crystal on all his creations so far combined. One should remember, the conversion rate for Aether Crystals was similar to the game currency. 

This meant that 1 top-grade Aether Crystal converted down to 10,000 medium-grade Crystals. Since he had made less than 2,000 pieces of equipment with the highest cost being 2 medium-grade crystals, it was clear that he probably hadn't even used up half! 

Draco could have made many Eternal Growth Semi-Legendary items with the possibility of becoming Legendary, but he didn't want to do that for random crafts. 

If he was crafting randomly, it meant that he was either doing it to raise his level or sell for money. It was only when he crafted with a target in mind that meant he was bestowing it to someone. 

Since that was the case, Draco did not want too many people to have his Semi-Legendary items that could become Legendary. There was a big gulf in the power between Legendary and Epic items, so he was content with only a few people in the world having Legendary items. 

He also wasn't going to give his people random items. If he was crafting for his own people, it meant that he would be taking their class, fighting style, and preferences into account, as he had done for Slim Fatty, Jada, and Jade. 

Draco smiled and put this out of mind as he placed his creations into a Bag of Holding. As for them, he would sell piecemeal in the Umbra Auction held every 3 months. 

In fact, since the end of the last one, less than a month should be left until the next one. Draco wondered if Eva and co had enough good stuff to sell, but reasoned that they should be fine. 

Draco chuckled at the thought and felt some comfort. He had been away from them long enough that he was starting to feel very uncomfortable. Draco found that he rather liked being a family man, and this endless questing was tiring. 

He couldn't wait until he could sprout the Etz Chaim seedling and take his close family with him wherever he went. At that time, he would never have to be alone. 

As it were, out of the 1,008 items he created in the past week, 98 of them had been unique designs. Draco had no complaints since he was competing with the old era standard. He was sure that if he was in the outside world, he would have likely gotten all of them as new designs and shaken the world. 

Still, with 98 of them, he managed to snag an extra 49,000% experience. With this, he was well over the required limit to upgrade everything, so Draco put his various Alchemical and Blacksmithing equipment aside and cleared the super mini small world. 

He was unsure if there would be enough energy in here for the transformation, so Draco exited the workroom and met a hesitant Natasha outside his door. She was surprised to see him come out and remained rooted to the spot. 

Draco chuckled and groped her thick butt gently, whispering into her ear. "What's wrong my dear?" 

Natasha blushed deeply but did not resist or resent his touch like she used to. Instead, she moved into it and closer into Draco's embrace. "I missed you…" 

Draco smiled gently outwardly, but deep down he was sniggering in a way that deserved a full and solid punch to the face. "I also missed you, Tasha. I'm currently busy with work and trying to improve myself for the competition, so I can't find time to engage you recently." 

Draco sighed lightly. "For this, I am sorry. I promise to make more time for you after I'm done, as you are very important to me." 

Natasha shook her head and spoke quietly. "You owe me nothing. I only wish for you to be successful in all your endeavors, as the idea of you being a grand winner in everything you do really excites me nowadays, almost like it's me in your shoes." 

'Interesting.' Draco thought with a smirk. 

Draco released Natasha and stopped caressing her soft and supple booty. There wasn't enough of his hand to cover it all, so Draco could only let go and wait for the right moment to experience it in full. 

In the meantime, he simply gave Natasha a gentle and soothing kiss to the lips. Natasha responded in kind, truly enjoying this feeling. This wasn't her first kiss, as she had many crushes when she was a teen, but it was certainly the best she ever tasted. 

When Draco broke off, there was a look of reluctance on her face that made him chuckle. He then walked out of the manor with Natasha in tow, who assumed he was heading into town. 

Draco turned and shook his head. "I'm not heading into the village, but near the core area. I'll be back in about an hour or two, at most a day." 

Natasha was surprised, but nodded in understanding. It wasn't her place to tell him what to do or nag about his matters. As long as he came back intact, that was all she could really ask for. 

Draco smiled one last time and his black Dark Angel wings unfurled behind him. Their majesty was supreme and inviolable, making all onlookers feel like they were gazing upon the Dark Lord of the Sky himself. 

Draco made one strong flap and was already high in the atmosphere. Another one sent him soaring through the air at prohibitive speeds, like he was Superman or a Saiyan in flight. 

Natasha stood rooted to the spot like an idiot, her mouth open as her pupils narrowed into dangerous slits. Her legs wobbled greatly and she eventually fell to her bum on the ground. 

She began to hyperventilate and sweat profusely, which was a surprising reaction for the usually unfriendly birdwoman. What was even more curious was the small puddle that leaked from where she sat, as her eyes were still locked on the place where Draco once stood. 


Draco flew through the atmosphere of the Treasury extremely quickly. Even he was surprised by his own speed, as he had never been this fast when he fought against the three Dragon Lords when he wanted to acquire the Dragon King class through his Class Up. 

Immediately, he knew that it had to do with his Abyssal Prime class. After all, he still had the Demonic Might passive skill which boosted every physical action of his by 100%. 

So, his speed had practically doubled and more thanks to his Class. Also, his ability to handle his Bloodline Energy had greatly improved ever since he performed that strange ritual when Classing Up. 

After all, one should remember that he still had access to his basic bloodline techniques, of which these wings were part. They were not exactly supported by the system, and the manifestation of them cost him raw bloodline energy. 

Draco eventually reached his goal, which was the border of the core area. Here, he saw a thick golden mist that showed the dividing line between both sections and prevented him from seeing into the core area. 

Draco used his eyes of Caelo to identify this wall. 

「Origin Blockade – Barrier 

Rank: Origin 

Description: A supreme perimeter defense made of diffused Origin Energy that prevents entrance, spying, and assault to an area from any being below the Origin God Rank.」 

Draco's breathing became rough as he was filled with endless greed. If he could collect all this energy into his Etz Chaim seedling, he would have the greatest foundation for his internal world, the most supreme starting point. 

However, he could only lust for it, but not have it. Even Divine Energy was impossible for him to absorb unless it was directly handed to him, much less Origin Energy. 

This was likely the reason why Origin Energy particles existed in the Treasury in such a noticeable amount. This Energy Barrier alone could destroy the entire main plane if condensed into an attack. 

However, this location was good enough for Draco due to the concentration of Worldly, Aetheric, and Divine Energy. It was far higher than the entire Vita City-State, making it the perfect location for the Rank Ups. 

First things first, Draco descended down to the earth and retracted his wings. He then brought out Pair Dadeni, Mjolnir, Fragarach, and Dragonlance. These four items looked as lovely as when Draco first saw them. 

He quickly inspected them one last time before the upgrade.
