Chapter 56: E-Rank Adventurers Examination
“Hello, I would like to take the promotion examination for E-Rank and D-Rank.” Leo said to the staff member at the front desk.
“Can I see your Adventurer’s ID?” The pretty woman behind the desk asked.
After receiving Leo’s ID, the woman looked his information up.
When she saw that he’s only been an Adventurer for a month, she looked at him with raised eyebrows, and she spoke in a somewhat mocking tone, “I would understand it if you only want to take the E-Rank promotion examination, but the D-Rank as well? Most Adventurers take that after being a D-Rank Adventurer for a whole year and a lot of them still fail.”
“I’m pretty confident in my strength.” He nodded with a smile.
Since he can easily kill an E-Rank boss all by himself, he should be able to handle D-Rank monsters with ease. Even if he fails the promotion, he can always try again in the future.
“I don’t really mind, but promotion examinations are not free. The E-Rank examination will cost you 5,000 dollars, and the D-Rank examination will cost you 20,000 dollars. You can pay the whole thing right now, and if you fail the E-Rank examination, we will refund you the 20,000 but not the 5,000.”
Leo was speechless. He didn’t think he needed to pay to take the examination.
Fortunately, he had the money.
“Okay, I will pay.”
After paying 25,000 dollars, the woman handed him a piece of paper and said, “Come back in about an hour. Don’t lose this paper because it’s your proof of payment.”
Leo left the Adventurers’ Guild shortly after.
“What should I do now?” He wondered out loud.
“Why don’t you prepare for the Wilderness? I hope you’re not thinking about going out there without any preparations, such as stocking up on potions and medicine.” Lilith said to him.
“I have never gotten hurt in the Wilderness, but I guess it’s always good to be prepared.”
After calling another taxi, Leo said to the driver, “Can you take me to the nearest potion store?”
About ten minutes later, Leo paid the driver and approached a building with the sign ‘Tori’s Premium Potion Store’.
Upon entering the store, he was greeted by an old man behind the counter.
“Morning, young man. How can I help you?”
“I’m thinking about buying some potions for the Wilderness,” he said.
“The Wilderness, huh? Then how about this Magic Bundle? It’s a bundle of potions that consists of 4 low-grade mana potions, 4 low-grade stamina potions, 2 low-grade energy potions, and 2 low-grade instant mana potions. It’ll cost 15,000 dollars, which is cheaper than buying them individually.”
“If you want some healing potions, those will be 2,000 for low-grade and 10,000 for medium-grade. Low-grade healing potions are for minor injuries like cuts while medium-grade are good even if you’re stabbed by a sword.”
‘Wow, potions sure are expensive… I must have drank at least a few hundred thousand dollars worth of potions during my training days.’ He swallowed nervously.
After pondering for some time, Leo said, “Can I get a Magic Bundle, 5 low-grade healing potions, and 1 medium-grade healing potion?”
“Sure thing. The total will be 25,000 dollars.”
After paying the money, Leo sighed inwardly, ‘I can’t believe I have already spent 50,000 today. While I may earn a lot of money as an Adventurer, it can also get very expensive being one, and I haven’t even purchased any artifacts yet.’
Once the old man handed Leo his supplies, he tossed it into his spatial storage and called for another taxi, returning to the Adventurers’ Guild, where he waited for his examination to begin.
Once it was about time for his examination, Leo approached the front desk and showed the paper to the worker.
“Leon, right? You can head to the fourth floor and go to room one. It’s the first room to the right. Your examiner will be waiting for you there.”
After making his way to the fourth floor, Leo entered room one.
“It’s you?” Leo was surprised when he saw the examiner inside the spacious room with a door at the other side.
THe examiner was a bulky old man with a long white beard— it was Guildmaster Borius.
“You’ve grown a lot since I last saw you. Even your aura is much sharper. I guess I didn’t waste my time by coming here today,” he said with a smile.
“So you want to take the E-Rank and D-Rank promotion examination today, huh? Show me what you’ve learned from Camille!”
Guildmaster Borus suddenly snapped his fingers, and the door at the end of the room opened.
A moment later, two large figures walked through the door and entered their room.
“In order to become a E-Rank Adventurer, you must be able to defeat these two monsters within 5 minutes!”
Leo was very familiar with these two monsters, as they were both Steel Feather Long Legs, E-Rank monsters.
‘That’s it? This examination is much easier than I anticipated…’ Leo felt a little disappointed, but he didn’t complain.
Once the monsters in the room noticed Leo and Guildmaster Borus, they instinctively avoided Guildmaster Borus and went straight for Leo due to the difference in their prowess.
Seeing this, Leo raised his hand and began multicasting Black Bullets.
Once the Steel Feather Long Legs were close enough, Leo released a barrage of Black Bullets on them, riddling their hardened bodies with holes, killing them instantly.
Guildmaster Borus’ eyes widened with surprise after seeing the results.
‘He multicast Black Bullet 12 times in that short amount of time?! And to be able to penetrate the Steel Feather Long Legs’ defense with Tier 1 magic! This guy is a monster!’
After killing the monsters, Leo turned to look at Guildmaster Borus with a calm face and asked, “Does this mean I am an E-Rank Adventurer now?”
“You did pass the examination… So yes, you’re now an E-Rank Adventurer…” Guildmaster Borus responded in a dazed voice.
