The ice didn\'t hinder the Centaur Knight\'s movements at all; it merely raised its s.h.i.+eld and blocked the shards .  

Facing the Centaur Knight\'s unstoppable charge, the heavily-armored Swordsman was also forced back .  

But the moment he turned around retreated a few steps back, his fate was already decided .

The heavily-armored Swordsman lifted his sword, intending to counterattack . Suddenly, a towering shadow loomed over him . When he looked over his shoulders, he saw the Centaur Knight\'s huge body just a few centimeters away from his face!

Sh*t!!

That was the last thing he could remember saying before his mind was sent into a whirl . The Centaur Knight smashed its s.h.i.+eld into his chest and sent him flying, landing on the ground a few moments later . All he could do now was moan in agony while clutching his stomach .

He was out of the battle .

\"Andon!\"

The Ranger who was about to attack apparently didn\'t expect that his comrade to fall in one hit . As a result, he panicked and released an arrow towards the Centaur Knight before quickly backing off . Their original plan was to let the Swordsman hold the Centaur Knight\'s attention while the other three would find opportunities to attack . Alas, the plan hadn\'t lasted ten seconds before it shattered . The Ranger wasn\'t ready for such a drastic change in the plan at its initial stages, so he could only back off and think of other options .

At that moment, the Thief who had been concealing himself also made his move .

If he knew that Andon would fail so miserably, he would\'ve hesitated and retreated like the Ranger . But it was too late as, by the time he attacked, Andon had already been knocked out . In a blink of an eye, his outcome was decided .

An intense wave of pain swept through the Thief\'s body . The Centaur Knight kicked backward using its two hind legs, stamping two black hoof prints on his chest . After that, the Thief was no different from the Swordsman and was left groaning on the ground .

If the Centaur Knight hadn\'t held back its strength, perhaps his ribcage would already have been shattered .

With two down, the Centaur Knight now s.h.i.+fted his attention to Randolf and rushed towards him .

\"Lapis!\"

Randolf quickly pulled his bow and yelled . He shot another arrow towards the Centaur Knight\'s chest, but its armor deflected it easily . The girl who Randolf shouted at recovered from her shock and grabbed another flask before throwing it onto the ground in front of Randolf .

On the surface, nothing seemed to have changed . But when the Centaur Knight galloped near Randolf, its huge body halted abruptly and tilted forward . Because of the inertia, the Centaur Knight ended in an awkward position; its two front hooves were stuck in the ground as though it was made out of mud . It began struggling wildly, but its legs sunk deeper into the ground the more it tried to move .


\"That is indeed Elemental Fusion . \"

Marlene said as she propped her chin with her fingers . She stared at the girl curiously with a glimmer of delight .

\"That\'s strange . . . since she has already learned about Elemental Fusion, why would she use such elementary spells?\"

When Rhode caught Marlene talking to herself, he chose to stay silent . He was also paying close attention to the girl named Lapis . As for the matter Marlene was thinking about, Rhode naturally knew her doubts .

Typically, when someone manages to reach the level of Elemental Fusion, it means that his or her ability is comparable to that of a full-fledged Alchemist . Alchemists were able to produce magic items and cast low-tier spells via concoction, but Lapis hadn\'t shown any magic instruments nor used any low-tier spells . All she did was imitate apprentice-level spells . Although her spells were pa.s.sable, other than in training, there was no point for her to store these spells in flasks as they could be learned easily .

The purpose of alchemy was to make complicated things easier, but all Lapis was doing was making it more complicated .

As for the level of this alchemy, not only could Marlene pa.s.sively ignore it, it could also be blocked by Lize\'s barrier . Rather than wasting time to concoct the spells into a flask, wasn\'t it better to use her Ranger skills?

When the two of them were still trying to figure out her intentions, the battle had already been decided .

Although they took the Centaur Knight by surprise, Randolf still didn\'t manage to win . When the Centaur Knight realized that it couldn\'t leave the trap, it hurled its spear at Randolf when he least expected it . As Randolf was in the midst of nocking his arrow, he didn\'t manage to react in time and was the third person to be sent flying .

Lapis, being the last one standing, knew that her brother was in a difficult position . She once again tried to attack the enemy by using alchemy, but her performance made Rhode and Marlene sigh at the same time .

The Centaur Knight caught sight of her movements and tossed its s.h.i.+eld towards her . With an ear-piercing screech, the s.h.i.+eld shot past her head . Lapis immediately lost her courage and squatted down with her hands on above her head . Apparently, she forgot what she was supposed to do .

A group of newbies .

From the beginning to the end, it took no less than thirty seconds for the Centaur Knight to wipe the floor with them . Rhode shook his head in disappointment . Frankly, this standard was even worse than the newbie players .

Ask them to go on a mission with him with this standard?

Impossible .

Rhode then recalled his summoned spirit .

From Rhode\'s gloomy expression, the four of them knew that their performance was unsatisfactory .

\"To be honest . . . your performance is far below my requirements . \"

Rhode didn\'t coat his words in sugar . This caused their already de-spirited expressions to turn even worse . However, they knew that what Rhode said was a fact .

\"But, I will give you another chance . In the following days, I will teach you how to improving using your own strength . If you can successfully improve, you may have the opportunity to become a formal member of my mercenary group . But if you fail, then I\'m sorry . . . \"

Rhode spread out his palms .

\"You can only be servants here . \"

The four of them were shocked and lifted their heads to look at Rhode . Randolf opened his mouth, but no words came out from it . They weren\'t supposed to be treated like this, still, Randolf could tell that their performance was truly substandard .

In the past, they could still get away with their level of skill because Anne was there as the backbone of the team . But now, she had left, and they found themselves unable to function properly as a team when faced with a strong opponent .

Can they still be considered mercenaries?

While Randolf sunk deep into thought, Rhode\'s voice brought him back to reality .

\"Your answer?\"

\"Yes, Sir!\"

Randolf quickly stood up and lifted his head .

\"We a.s.sure you that we will comply with your request . \"

\"I hope so . \"

Randolf\'s answer didn\'t a.s.sure Rhode at all .

Luckily Shauna had warned them about Rhode\'s lack of emotions otherwise Randolf would think that he didn\'t care at all . But Rhode\'s att.i.tude still left him somewhat frustrated . Perhaps they wouldn\'t be this uneasy in his presence if he could at least give a smile,

\"But I have one more question regarding Lapis . \"

Hearing this, Randolf immediately tensed . Lapis was still holding onto her brother\'s sleeve, carefully watching the young man who was only older than him by a few years . Although Rhode was aware that both of them were nervous, he didn\'t plan to stop and continued to speak .

\"I can see that she\'s at the level of Elemental Fusion . But why didn\'t she use magic instruments? It wouldn\'t be difficult for her to concoct low-tier spells . What\'s the purpose for spending effort crafting elementary spells?\"

\"Yes . . . umm\"

Randolf\'s expression eased up a little after understanding Rhode\'s intentions . It wasn\'t a strange question as Mark White had asked them the exact same thing during their recruitment .

\"Lapis isn\'t very talented . She likes alchemy and had been always able to comprehend every theory since young, but somehow, she hit a bottleneck and was unable to improve since . Yes, she has the ability to perform Elemental Fusion, but she can\'t concoct higher-tier potions . . . \"

\"Wait . \"

Rhode face turned strange and stopped Randolf from continuing . By the side, Marlene expression also turned weird .

\"You mean that . . . she can comprehend every subject in alchemy? From mysterious creations, potions to construction? All of it?\"

\"Y . . Yes, Sir . \"

This time, Lapis answered personally, albeit timidly .

\"I, when I learned alchemy, I thought that every alchemy subject must be studied together, so I . . . \"

\" . . . \"

Rhode and Marlene glanced at each other, speechless . They finally understood why she did that .

Just like a person who studied foreign languages, they would usually study one language at the time . But for Lapis, she chose to it learn all at once . That was why her performance and ability differed so much . Elemental Fusion was indeed the basics of alchemy, but more than often people would only excel in one division of it . If she majored in mysterious creation, her Elemental Fusion would be to create magic instruments . If she majored in potion-making, her Elemental Fusion would be concocting potions . And if she majored in construction, her Elemental Fusion would be used as a core to enhance magical constructs .

Different divisions had different outcomes, but this greedy girl wanted to eat everything all together .

Maybe this is the so-called saying that ignorant people have no fear .

But what struck Rhode and Marlene speechless was her ability to learn all three divisions . Typically, an ordinary person could only dedicate their entire life to one division . Even if they were greedy and wanted to learn one more, they had no time .

Even the superhumanly player couldn\'t escape from this limitation . When a player chose a division, it would consume 1 Skill Point . If they wanted to unlock another division, they would need to use 5 Skill Points . These Skill Points could directly level a single division to 6 . Therefore, using so many Skill Points to do something like this was just plain wasteful . Moreover, every division had a different set of skills and knowledge requirements . Even the most bored player who wanted to become the king of alchemy couldn\'t do it without dedicating around five years to it .

At least from what Rhode remembered, from his many years of playing Dragon Soul Continent Online, he had never seen someone who was successful in learning all three divisions in alchemy .

But now there was actually a weird person before him that managed to do so, at least in the theory part .

Is she a genius or not?

At that moment, Rhode felt utterly helpless . He had the urge to pat her shoulder and give her this advice:

Kid . . . that\'s enough . Just . . . delete your character and replay . The ice didnt hinder the Centaur Knights movements at all; it merely raised its s.h.i.+eld and blocked the shards .   Facing the Centaur Knights unstoppable charge, the heavily-armored Swordsman was also forced back .   But the moment he turned around retreated a few steps back, his fate was already decided .
