TL: Phew. Ok, first of all, I highly recommend you guys to read it on a PC because there will be youtube music links and it will probably enhance your experience. In addition it’s a bulk release up to chapter 171 (a chapter per hour until it’s done), and I think it will be far more comfortable if you read on a large screen.
Fingers crossed for releasing a mass release without crashing my site, remember to go to novelupdates and spam your F5 there instead of my website lol.
Chapter 145 – Lord of the Nest
Brendel stopped petting the Direwolf’s large head, and he rubbed his forehead instead.
[In order to create a new army of wolves…… I can use my new title to make the Direwolf submit, but the normal wolves found in this area is probably not as appealing as the ones created by the system.]
With the Warg’s Heart, he was able to control the dark chaotic Mana to create a wolf. He started fiddling with the commands and looked through the new page, Leader of Wolves, and soon discovered the new functions.
– Leader of Wolves
– Black Wolf: Spend 50 Mana to create a Black Wolf
– Shadow Rock Beast: Spend 20 Mana to create a Shadow Rock Beast
The youth paused for a slight moment. Summoning a Black Wolf was understandable, but what was a Shadow Rock Beast? Did it mean that the Warg’s heart could provide two different types of wolves to choose from?
He did not know much about the inner workings of the Warg’s Heart, only that it could summon Black Wolves. It was the first time he even seen how things really worked. (TL: It’s been a long time since the previous chapter, so maybe reading the previous few chapters might be good)
[…… But I don’t recall any information in regards to a Shadow Rock Beast in the game. Even if there’s an additional option, shouldn’t it be a Mist Wolf or something? Furthermore, its Mana requirement is only 20 MP, so it should be much weaker than a Black Wolf. This is strange. Well, there’s no harm in trying.]
It had been several hours since he summoned the Wind Spirit Spiders, so it was now possible for him to summon a few Black Wolves.
He raised the hand that was on his forehead and pointed it at a nearby empty ground. A dark current started swirling and formed into something. There was a burst of light and a Black Wolf jumped out from the current of Black Mana in the air.
[What the heck?]
[What the heck?]
The wolf was stretching its limbs; it was the size of a horse with black shiny fur. A pair of red eyes regarded its surroundings, and the wolf revealed sharp white fangs as it yawned. It looked like a Black Wolf from the Calamity of Wolves.
But there was armor on it. A strange black colored armor covered the wolf’s body and made it appear imposing.
[…… I don’t think a Black Wolf is supposed to look like this. Wolves with metal armor, well it did appear in the game. But a Black Wolf with a layer of rocks over it? It doesn’t look like bones or horns. If it’s in this form…… An elemental spirit? But how?]
Carglise looked excited when he saw the shiny layer of black rocks over the wolf.
“My lord, did you summon that wolf?” He asked.
Amandina and Scarlett did not bother to chime in. They knew that the reply would most likely be ‘the spell came from the Black Tower’ or ‘it is a secret’. Amandina believed that there were secrets to be kept, and therefore she did not pry into his secrets. Scarlett merely thought that Brendel was always right in what he did and there was no need for a reason.
“My lord, the…… rocks seemed like they merged into its body. Is that wolf not in pain?” Merial asked.
Scarlett flipped her ponytail back and disagreed: “Doesn’t it look pretty? Besides, don’t wizards come up with these things all the time?”
“I’m sure my lord did not hurt it in any way,” Amandina explained.
Brendel did not answer. He was completely engrossed in figuring out the mysterious identity of the strange wolf. The Warg’s Heart was an unfamiliar item to him, and perhaps the summoned wolves in the game appeared in this manner. He decided to test out the other ability and pointed at the ground next to the wolf.
20 Mana was spent.
The black-colored Mana once again converged, but this time the ground below the mana suddenly bulged out and a strange creature emerged from it.
Brendel stumbled again.
“Huh? Isn’t this a Rock Panther….. It looks different?” Carglise said.
The Rock Panther looked like the one summoned from Halran Gaia, but it had an elegant and sleek appearance. Sleek black lines were drawn onto its body, with pointed tips on its shoulders, legs, and head.
[T-this isn’t really formed by earth but Mana. It feels a little twisted, like some kind of demonic spawn. A half-living elemental spirit? Wait a minute!]
Brendel touched his sword subconsciously. He quickly pulled it out and scanned it with the system.
[The Nest of Rocks ability from Halran Gaia is gone. I see, so the Warg’s Heart has somehow taken away the ability from the sword and merged it into one because of the system? Unique systems created for equipment did exist in the game, but it’s very rare. Usually, it’s a profession or if a player possesses a territory. Then again, there’s a Planeswalker system here. Maybe my system is grouping up all sources of Nests and combining it into one unified place? So if I get another equipment with a Nest ability, it will be combined into one…..? Going around the world, searching for Nests and defeating the guardians, absorbing each Nest ability and becoming the Monster King. Hahaha.]
Brendel laughed to himself. His eyes switched between the Black Wolf covered with rocks and the Shadow Rock Beast, and he suddenly froze—
[…… Why does the Black Wolf have the Earth Element from Halran Gaia? And the Rock Panther has the Shadow Element?]
The system windows in his eyes rotated in a frenzy as he started looking at them in detail. He discovered a new entry and his irises dilated in excitement.
– Lord of Nests (Level 1)
– 2 Nests have been obtained
– Nest of Shadows (Tier 2), Nest of Rocks (Tier 1)
[What! Are you kidding me? So there’s really a system that absorbs Nests? It takes in the different creature types and includes the attributes too? So this is why it’s a new creature that didn’t exist in the game…… But is the new creature stronger or weaker?]
Getting all the Nests was nice, but what if the conjured creature somehow ended up weaker?
“Carglise, test them out.” He said.
Carglise did not wait; he wanted to try fighting the newly summoned creatures. Since it was not the first time he defeated the Rock Panther, he decided to use the same strategy for them and pulled out his sword.
Brendel issued an order to the Shadow Rock Beast in response.
The distance where he could control his summons had greatly increased with the inclusion of the Warg’s Heart to approximately four miles. Any further, and the effects would be greatly weakened. Naturally, the Planeswalker’s system was far superior, since he could communicate with them regardless of the distance.
The Shadow Rock Beast immediately rushed towards Carglise upon receiving Brendel’s command. It had similar movements as the Rock Panther, but there was a black shadow-like trail behind it.
Carglise was initially tense when he saw the trailing darkness behind the Shadow Rock Beast, but he quickly recovered when he saw the familiar movements of the creature. He had fought against the Rock Panther countless times and was familiar with how it moved and attacked.
[It probably isn’t too difficult.]
The youth stepped forward and readied himself in an aggressive stance. He decided to test the creature by thrusting his sword cautiously, but the panther charged forward and allowed it to sink into its body.
Carglise did not think it would be so violent as to disregard his attacks and everyone watched him get taken down by the panther.
