Chapter 113: Elders Orb of Restraints
“Rank 1… I really didnt think it was possible, but youve proved me wrong.” Nina mumbled in a dazed voice as her gaze was fixated on her watch.
After snapping out of her daze, she spoke, “With that being said, even if we are rank 1 right now, there are still two and a half weeks left in the Wilderness Training Course, which means there are plenty of opportunities for the others to catch up.”
“I know, but now that our new hunting location is sealed, where are we supposed to train” Leo then asked.
Nina pondered for a moment before speaking, “Since we can fight A-Rank monsters— at least the weaker ones, we can start hunting them instead of B-Ranks.”
“Im pretty sure theres an area near our current location that has mostly A-Rank monsters. Let me look it up real quick.”
Nina retrieved her phone and started fiddling with it.
A few moments later, she showed Leo the phone, “This area has A-Rank monsters, and according to the information here, they are Exploding Corpses and Silver Phantoms. Its about 12 hours away. Do you want to go”
“Wow, where did you go to look up that map And sure, we can go there.”
“This map can be accessed by anyone. It has all sorts of information from hunting locations, the type of monsters you can find there, monster nests, and even active Labyrinths. Furthermore, you can contribute to the map as well, and if you do it enough, you can receive decent rewards.”
“How neat.” Leo looked up the map on his own phone.ᴘᴀ ɴ ᴅᴀ n ᴏ ᴠᴇʟ
“Anyways, we can go there after we rest a little. I still need some time to digest everything that has happened today.” He said.
Meanwhile, somewhere in the Wilderness, a group of students had just finished killing an A-Rank monster, adding 150,000 points to their millions of points.
“H-Hey! Look at our rank!” One of them suddenly said.
“What about it”
“What! Weve been surpassed! Thats impossible! We came straight to this place and have been hunting A-Rank monsters without rest this entire time! Who could have possibly surpassed us and our 17 million points!”
“Its probably the Crimson Witchs group.”
“You think so, Valery” pᴀɴda nᴏvel
“Theyre the only ones strong enough to rival our prowess.” Valery nodded.
“Actually, theres someone else who could rival us— if hed recovered his original strength, that is.” A bulky figure said with a teasing smile on his face.
“Leo, right I doubt it. I heard that hed partnered up with one person— Nina Wraith.” Another person there said.
“What! Is that true! Leo partnered up with the Witch of Necromancy!” Another female student beside Valery exclaimed.
She turned to look at Valery and chuckled, “So his new girlfriend is that little girl… Who knew he had such a taste.”
Valerys facial expression remained nonchalant despite the topic, but that was only on the outside. In her heart, she was burning with anger.
‘Leo… with that little girl…
“Ignore them, Valery. Theyre purposely messing with you.” A handsome young man approached her and said.
“I am well aware of that, John. Anyways, if we have enough time to chit chat, lets use it to get back rank 1.” Valery said. ,c,om
Their group continued to hunt A-Rank monsters.
Twelve hours after Leo and Nina started their rest, they packed up the tent and began making their way towards their next location.
While they traveled on their hoverboard, Leo opened up his character status with the artifact slots to see if he could re-equip his Bamboo Sword that hed replaced with the Void Staff.
‘Shit… I cant find the Bamboo Sword anywhere. Does this mean its lost forever That these artifacts are for one-time use only Leo cried inwardly when he realized this.
If hed known this beforehand, he wouldnt have purchased the Void Staff.
With that being said, he was also lucky to have realized it this soon and only lost an E-Rank artifact, as it wouldve been disastrous if hed lost an S-Rank or even A-Rank artifact.
After getting over the loss of 350 Magic Points, Leo proceeded to ponder what he should buy from the Magic Shop now that he acquired some more points.
‘The last time I purchased a D-Rank passive skill, I acquired a really powerful passive skill. Maybe I should gamble again and test my luck.
After pondering for a moment, he decided to spend 1,000 Magic Points on another D-Rank passive skill, as the previous result was just too good for him to ignore.

[Description: Allows you to see information of artifacts and treasures]
‘Oh This is actually an amazing passive skill! Now I can tell what an artifact does just by looking at it!
Leo immediately retrieved the Elders Orb of Restraints and focused his eyes on it until a screen appeared on top of it.
[Elders Orb of Restraints]
[Description: Restrain the movements of all monsters within a 50 meter radius and decrease their defense by 50%. 600 seconds cooldown.]
‘No wonder why the Obsidian Ghouls became easier to kill after their movements were restricted. To think this artifact not only seals their movements but also lowers their defenses, making them more vulnerable… I cannot imagine what other powerful artifacts the Elder had left behind! Leo smiled as his imaginations ran wild.
Many hours later, they arrived at their new hunting spot, but the atmosphere there made Leo shiver.
“This place… a graveyard”
Although the place was badly damaged, there was no doubt that it used to be a graveyard, as there were still coffins and tombstones lying all over the place.
“I shouldve guessed that this would be the case after hearing the names of the monsters. Exploding Corpses and Silver Phantoms Sounds like something that would only show up in graveyards.” He sighed.
“Do you want to go to another place” Nina asked him.
“No, this place is fine.”
