Chapter 49: Level 3 Magic System
Chapter 49: Level 3 Magic System
After exiting the labyrinth, the Magic System recognized his quest completion.
<You have completed a Quest>
[+20,000 Magic Experience, +100 Magic Points]
<Magic System has leveled up>
<Artifact Shop has been unlocked>
<Quest Shop has been unlocked>
[System Level: 3]
[Magic Talent: EX+]
[Dark Magic Affinity: S]
[Wind Magic Affinity: F]
[Magic Experience: 14,200/1,000,000]
[Magic Points: 136]
‘Artifact Shop and Quest Shop? I will have to take a look at this once we return to the city.’ Leo thought to himself after seeing this new function.
As they got closer to the city walls, Leo realized that he wasn’t getting any more quests even though he would normally acquire more quests the moment he finishes them.
‘Perhaps I have to finish the last special quest before I can receive more quests from the system? Or do I have to get my quests from the Quest Shop now? How troublesome…’ He sighed inwardly.
After returning to her mansion, Miss Camille asked Leo, “What are your next quests?”
“I don’t have any,” he shook his head.
“I think I have to finish Nina’s quest before the Magic System gives me more quests. This is the first time that I haven’t received a new quest in so long. They’re usually given to me instantly after I finish the previous quests.”
“That sounds troublesome…” Miss Camille frowned.
Without any quests, his progress for the Magic System was halted.
After pondering for some time, Miss Camille spoke, “I wanted to delay Nina’s issue for a little longer, but since we need to complete her quest, I guess we can only help her as soon as possible.”
He nodded, “Let’s go speak with Nina tomorrow— after I sell the mana cores and the Affinity Orb.”
“If you’re thinking about selling the Affinity Orb to the Adventurers’ Guild, I advise you to not. Although they give fair prices for mana cores, they usually pay less for artifacts and other resources. If you really want to sell the Affinity Orb, you should try the auction house, or you can try selling it to someone who has a fire magic affinity. I can think of a few people in the academy who would pay a fortune for it.”
“Really? Then I will try to sell it to one of these people in your mind. If that doesn’t work, I’ll go to the auction house.” He nodded.
After taking a shower and eating dinner, Leo returned to his guest room, where he opened up the Magic System to take a look at its new unlocks.
He decided to check the Quest Shop first since it seemed to be the least interesting.
[Quest Shop Level: 1]
[Defeat an F-Rank Adventurer: 1 MP]
[Reward: 10 MP]
[Use 100,000 Mana: 5 MP]
[Reward: 20 MP]
[Kill 100 Monsters: 10 MP]
[Reward: 100 MP]
[Explore Labyrinth: 20 MP]
[Reward: 300 MP]
[Learn Tier 5 Magic Spell: 100 MP]
[Reward: 500 MP]
[Quest Completed: 0/10]
‘These are some simple quests. The rewards are also quite generous considering how much I have to spend to purchase them…’
However, he still decided to save his Magic Points for now.
After looking at the Quest Shop, Leo opened up the Artifact Shop next.
[Artifact Shop Level: 1]
[Strength Bracelet(F-Rank): Minor strength boost. 5 MP]
[Stamina Bracelet(F-Rank): Minor stamina boost. 5 MP]
[Magic Ring(F-Rank): Minor magic power boost. 5 MP]
[Mana Regeneration Ring(F-Rank): Increase mana regeneration by 5. 10 MP]
[Artifact Purchased: 0/10]
A list of F-Rank artifacts filled Leo’s vision after opening the Artifact Shop. There were literally hundreds of artifacts that he could purchase from the shop. However, he didn’t know how it worked.
‘If I purchased one of these artifacts, would the Magic System create it for me? Can it even do something like that? Creating artifacts out of thin air?’
As impossible as it sounded, Leo didn’t doubt the Magic System’s power, and he truly believed that the magic System was capable of such feats.
After pondering for a bit, Leo decided to purchase the Mana Regeneration Ring for 10 Magic Points.
<You have purchased ‘Mana Regeneration Ring’ from the Artifact Shop for 10 MP>
<Equip Mana Regeneration Ring?>
“Yes.” Leo confirmed.
<You have equipped Mana Regeneration Ring>
Leo looked at his fingers afterward, but he couldn’t see any rings on his fingers, causing him to raise an eyebrow.
The Magic System opened up another screen the following moment, showing an outline of a human figure and twelve boxes, exactly like a character’s equipment screen in video games. Eleven of these boxes were empty, but one of the boxes located at the avatar’s right hand had a blue ring inside.
“Seriously…?” Leo mumbled in a dumbfounded voice when he realized what he was seeing.
When he tapped on the box with the ring with his finger, a small screen appeared right next to it.
[Mana Regeneration Ring: Mana regeneration +5]
Leo couldn’t help but smile after understanding the Artifact Shop’s real function.
‘This is just like an RPG! This is my character equipment screen and these empty boxes are my artifact slots! How wonderful!’
The character equipment screen had 1 head slot, 1 necklace slot, 2 ring/bracelet slots, 2 earring slots, 1 armor slot, 1 cloak slot, 1 glove slot, 1 shoe slot, and last but not least, 2 weapon slots, one in each hand!
Furthermore, since these artifact slots are within the system, he should still be able to equip actual artifacts, potentially doubling the amount of artifacts he can use at once!
‘Once again, I have underestimated the potential of this Magic System! If it’s already this powerful at level 3, what else can I acquire with a level 4 Magic System? When will I be able to buy S-Rank artifacts? Will I be able to purchase set artifacts?’ He wondered inwardly as he closed his eyes and pondered about all of the possibilities, eventually falling asleep sometime later.
