Chapter 102: Heaven Wing Mana Control
Yeon-woo had a sandwich in one hand and a Skill Tome in the other.
Now, he felt relaxed enough to carry a conversation with Edora while reading through a book.
But a part of him focused his consciousness on his body.
‘After the mana vein was opened, Magic Circuit is operating better than before.’
[Your body has changed due to the acquisition of new knowledge. Mana looks for new paths to travel and a new circuit is beginning to open.]
[3 center circuits have successfully been opened.]
[6 large circuits have successfully been opened.]
[12 medium circuits have successfully been opened.]
[36 small circuits have successfully been opened.]
[36 new Cores have been created.]
[Magic Circuit’s phase 1 has been completed. Mana is traveling down the newly opened circuits to cleanse the waste in your body.]
[The proficiency of Magic Circuit has dramatically increased. 35.1%]
[The proficiency of Mana Control has dramatically increased. 9.2%]
[Magic Power’s stats have increased by 5.]
[All elements have increased by 10.]
[Body improvement has been confirmed. The halted succession process will resume.]
[Current Progress: 99.7%]
What Yeon-woo had named ‘Core’ was located in 360 different parts of the body.
Yeon-woo chose 36 different locations he thought were most important and tightly compacted mana in those areas so they wouldn’t come loose.
Because of that, his magic power in Magic Circuit had decreased to 1/5 of its original amount, but the efficiency wasn’t even comparable to the old Magic Circuit.
This was because it was now possible to control the amount of magic power being used from his Cores. What was impossible before was now possible.
Also, he was now able to locate the ‘hidden’ Magic Circuit.
Circuits big and small were tightly knotted up. Some circuits were so small that he wasn’t able to feel them if he didn’t focus.
So far, the amount of magic power he had used was only 20%.
What if he was able to use the remaining 80% as well?
Then, he would be able to use a colossal amount of magic power and move more efficiently.
Yeon-woo decided to open the remaining circuits.
He used his Cores without rest. Mana knocked on the doors of the hidden circuits, and slowly began to open these paths. It knocked down obstacles and paved the roads.
At first, it was extremely difficult. It wasn’t easy to pave new roads. Also, some of Yeon-woo’s consciousness was focused on the books he was reading.
But as time passed, the procession sped up. As he acquired more knowledge, the mana also moved more powerfully so the growth of the circuits was much smoother.
Then at one point, there was a sudden explosion. Out of the eight medium circuits that the One-horned Tribe called mana vein, three had opened. Six large circuits connected to the twelve meridians, and the rest of the mana channels opened one by one.
45% of the mana circuits in Yeon-woo’s body were opened.
Eliminal Cleanse naturally followed, emitting the rest of the waste in his body. Thanks to that, he had to take a two-hour shower.
But when he returned to the Skill Archive, he felt a lightness in his steps he hadn’t felt before.
Also, his judgment had improved, so he was able to read the books at a faster rate.
Even though he had only set up his mana circuits, his physique changed too.
Yeon-woo settled the hunger he felt from his physical changes with a sandwich while reading the rest of the books.
The guards who had been observing Yeon-woo from the beginning were looking at him wearily.
On the other hand, Edora openly stared at Yeon-woo, whose attention was on the books. How nice would it be if that attention was on her.
Of course, she didn’t show what she was thinking.
“Are you done with organizing?”
Yeon-woo replied, his attention still on the books.”
“About 95%. I still need about 5% more.”
Edora almost screamed from shock. Even if it was basic Inner Cultivation, it was still the process of creating an entirely new Mugong.
But he was almost finished in 3 days?
Someone who had no prior knowledge of Mugong?
Actually, Edora thought just understanding the basic terms were good enough. Mugong had such a long history, after all.
So Edora was going to help Yeon-woo once he had the basic terms down. No matter how she looked at it, her father’s quest was ridiculous.
But in the middle, her mind started to change. She thought ‘Maybe?’ as she saw Yeon-woo looking at the books. Maybe her father had seen something in Yeon-woo that she hadn’t.
Now she knew her father was right. Yeon-woo was probably telling the truth that he was almost finished since he didn’t joke about such things.
“What else do you need?”
“It seems like all Mugong have their own traits, their ‘colors.’ They all have their own goals.”
Edora nodded her head.
The Tendon Transformation Scripture focused on completing the vessel, and the Third Inner Cultivation focused on taking in the energy from the sky and the earth. And if you went deeper than that, there were Shingong, Magong, and Dokgong.
“What I created until now is only the very fundamental things.”
To be precise, it was Inner Cultivation for the Magic Circuit. But he didn’t say this.
“To have the use of Mugong it needs to have its own characteristics. But I still don’t have those.”
Edora was lost in thought for a moment.
Inner Cultivation changed a lot for a person. What was a characteristic befitting for Yeon-woo?
“Is there anything you have in mind?”
“Then what are you planning on doing?”
“I have to search for that now.”
Yeon-woo finished his sandwich and placed the book back where he found it.
“In the Bronze Skill Archive.”
Yeon-woo directly headed to the Bronze Skill Archive. Now there was only one day left.
He was planning on finding what he needed in that time.
‘If possible, it would be nice if it improved magic power. If it’s something that’s beneficial to me, it would be the fire or magic type?’
Yeon-woo was able to be enlightened on many things when he was setting up his Inner Cultivation.
Until now, he had only thought of magic power as a ball of energy.
However, magic power was able to be used in a variety of different ways. It was a whole new world for him.
The concept of mana was too hard for someone who had grown up on Earth.
‘It’s not just Mugong. Magic, curses, superpowers…the use of mana is much more complicated than I thought.’
Mugong was just one of the many ways one could use mana.
‘If I’m able to use all the ways.’
Yeon-woo’s eyes sparkled under the mask.
He knew it was definitely possible. Normal players would have crashed into a wall, but Yeon-woo had Magic Circuit.
‘That’s why the Draconic species were so amazing.’
Not only did they use all those different ways, they were able to flip the laws of mana using just their will.
‘How did such a species go extinct?’
Yeon-woo thought about this, but this wasn’t in the diary either.
But he was sure of one thing. Since he had Magic Circuit, he would be able to use all those ways too.
Of course, to do that, he would have to finish setting up the rest of the circuits in his body.
‘What wouldn’t I do to get stronger.’
This was only the first step.
Yeon-woo took a look around the entire archive and chose the books he wanted to read. The fire property books would be the most helpful, especially with his contract with the Phoenix.
Surprisingly, there were only a few Mugong that were useful to him.
<Strong Hyul Magong>
<Light Inner Cultivation>
Yukyangong focused on growing vitality. Strong Hyul Magong was a destructive one, Neuebyeoksae was famous for being the most powerful one using the brain, and Light Inner Cultivation didn’t really have anything special about it. It was a quiet and soft strength.
But there were two reasons why Yeon-woo chose Light Inner Cultivation. It was something to smoothly connect the other Mugongs, and it would go well with the Despair of the Black King.
Yeon-woo absorbed all 4 of the Mugongs, rebuilding some as he went. Thankfully, it wasn’t too hard. He had already understood the Inner Cultivation, and he had steadfast goals and things to compare it to.’
‘The Martial King.’
The beast he saw in the eyes of the king.
He tried to imitate that as much as possible. He thought a good skill would come out of it.
[The proficiency of Mana Control is increasing by a rapid speed. 11, 12….16, 17….20%….]
[The new Inner Cultivation has started to show itself. You have accomplished a great achievement. You will be rewarded with additional karma.]
[You have earned 5,000 karma.]
[You have earned an additional 3,000 karma.]
[Magic Power has increased by 5.]
[The proficiency of Magic Circuit has increased 40.1%]
[Magic Power is…..]
[A new Inner Cultivation has been completed. Would you like to choose a name?]
The fourth day arrived.
Yeon-woo gave the new Inner Cultivation a name he had been thinking about for a long time.
‘Heaven Wing Mana Control.’
[The skill ‘Mana Control’ has been changed to ‘Heaven Wing Mana Control.’
It was an old nickname of his younger brother.
