394 Rank 2 Equipment Power 2
｢Eyes of Caelo – Fusion item
Passive 1 – True Sight: You are able to see everything and anything within your Rank.
Passive 2 – Paragon of Destruction: Destruction Energy no longer damages targets you deem as allies and does not negate drops.
Active 1 – Omega: Fire out a blast of the purest Destruction Energy that can rend anything and everything under heaven within your Rank. No cooldown.
Active 2 – Utter Destruction: Send out a super-condensed beam of Destruction Energy that can eliminate any existence from the past and future within your Rank. No cooldown.
Note 1: Casting these skills will result in total catatonia.
Note 2: These are beams of unparalleled destruction! Anything hit by them will CEASE TO EXIST.
Description: These are the Eyes of the Supreme God, Caelo, God of Destruction, and the Ultimate God. Due to a resonance, the player is able to bring out the full potential of the divine eyes. The eyes have been restored to their true power after awakening the bloodline of the user.
The Eyes of Caelo will become more powerful after every rank up.｣
Draco had to rub his chest to calm his beating heart. However, as one could expect, he was unable to do so. As such, he roared with delight: "FUCK, THESE EYES ARE TOO OVERPOWERED!!"
His True Sight had not changed, but his Rank up had changed everything. Now he could see into all matters from Rank 1 and Rank2, giving him much more leeway than before.
This included reading minds, seeing details, and finding weaknesses of his targets. The Eyes of Caelo were powerful because of their limitlessness. There was no cap to its power, it had an infinite amount of potential.
Of course, the same could be said of any item above the Epic Rank. As explained before, the reason they did not have stats like those at Rare Rank and below was because their power could not be measured with mere numbers.
Instead, it solely depended on the strength of the user to bring it out. Hence, why the items that were fused with Draco also developed so strongly, while those that weren't only grew a bit.
Once he reached Rank 7, he would have reached the cap for all Epic and Legendary items in terms of growth. Becoming a True God would allow him to reach the cap for Divine items. At Origin God Rank, he would likely reach the cap for Origin items, should such a thing even exist.
On the other hand, items like Fragarach, Dragonlance, and the two crafting items were growth items. They did not care for Draco's rank and the only way they could regain their peak condition was by Draco feeding them his precious exp.
This was the system's way of balancing the value and strength of both types of items.
His second passive had also remained the same, allowing him to wantonly use Destruction Energy without suffering its greatest flaw, the loss of all items, experience, or any form of reward.
After all, Destruction Energy was usually known as Disintegration Energy. It simply turned everything it touched into less than ash, rendering it into nothingness, nil, non-existence.
Dying to Destruction Energy was the worst kind of death, which was why no one fucked around with anyone or anything that could use it. A person killed by Destruction Energy could not be revived by anyone other than a White Dragon with Creation Energy at best.
The penalty for using it was technically a great way to limit the use of it by parties that could manage this horrible energy, but now Draco had been given free reign. Honestly, the person who thought this was a good idea needed to borrow some IQ from Qiong Qi.
Omega hadn't changed either, but just like True Sight, it had become more powerful. Now, Draco could freely zap anything at Rank 2 and get their loot, exp and whatever else without having to lift a finger.
The tradeoff? Well, he wouldn't have to worry about lifting a finger ever again. It would induce total catatonia, making him either unconscious in a coma or a living vegetable.
If Hikari was around, this wouldn't be a problem as she could heal him from it. This was why Draco howled in excitement when he saw that the instant death penalty had been removed.
However, Draco hardly used the beam because it was so slow. It traveled at its own pace, as if it was taking the time to sightsee and marvel at the beauty of the world.
It made sense. Caelo didn't really fight by firing beams from his eyes as that was inefficient when he had arms. Just like when they fought (read as: when Draco got obliterated) the fellow didn't even move a muscle to channel the purest Destruction Energy into an avatar.
What made Draco even more excited was the second passive, which allowed him to erase a person from the past or future, as this had many great implications that he couldn't even fathom.
Sure, at Rank 2 there were few entities he could slaughter from the past, but if he reached Rank 7, he could change the timeline of the world itself. He could wipeout Sigurd and save the Dragons, destroy various Rank 7 entities he did not like among others.
However, Draco frowned. This was too good to be true. There must be a limit to how far back in the past he could go. Draco decided to do some experimentation, as it would be worth it regardless of the cost.
He focused on Sigurd when he had been Rank 2, as everyone had to start from somewhere, right? His eyes tore through the veil of time and space, locking on the young Sigurd training with a spear in… the Ancestral City of Dragons?!
This was not something Draco had ever expected! Wait, could it be true what Hikari said? That the Dragons had wiped out his clan or something which garnered his hatred?
Maybe the all-powerful Dragons had a seer who predicted their demise at his hand and wanted to nip the future problem in the bud? It was the only thing that would make his presence there make sense.
Still, Draco was here to do something else. He felt the Destruction Energy in his eyes pool and condensed ready to wipe this fellow out of existence for eternity, changing the history of the world fundamentally.
However, the rip in time closed suddenly and Draco's felt the energy disperse. Soon, a notification came from the system that grabbed his attention.
｢System to Player Announcement
Your skill Utter Destruction, has a temporal limit of 50 years due to the power of Destruction Energy. If it travels too far across time, it will not only rend a target to nothing, but the flow of time itself, causing everything else to cease existence. This is a permanent temporal limit set by the system, please be advised.｣
Draco began to sweat profusely. Goddamn, he almost destroyed himself and the entire world of Boundless just by performing a test. Had his Destruction Energy not been stifled, the results would have been catastrophic.
Draco calmed down and stopped toying with the Eyes of Caelo. They were the one item he had that he used the least, because its power was so great that he didn't even know how to use it fully. This must have been how Lucifer, Amaterasu, and their peers had felt.
Draco then turned to the Dragorugio set and analyzed its changes at a basic level before taking in the overall effect.
｢Dragorugio – One-handed sword (Optimal)(Infused)
Rank: Epic (Evolvable)
Passive 1 – Destructive Aura: This sword deals 20% Destruction Energy with every attack.
Active 1 – Black Flame: Cover the blade in a black flame that is a mixture of Destruction Energy and Fire Energy for 1 minute. Cooldown: 8 minutes.｣
The Dragorugio sword was always equipped in his right hand and had been his main weapon for the longest time. Even though Fragarach was better in some aspects, he still preferred this blade because it was connected to him. He was happy to see his first passive had increased from 10% to 20%.
At 20% Destruction Energy per swing, it would likely deal even more damage than the Divine Fragarach. When boosted by the Seal of Camelot's 15x damage increase and his stats, then his Demonic Might passive skill… too scary!
His active skill had changed its duration from 30 seconds to 1 minute, while the cooldown had reduced from 10 minutes to 8. Now, Draco could…
Ah what the hell, at this point, was there a need to even discuss how much damage he could do? Let's just settle for 'big ouch'-tier damage and be free.
｢Dragorugio – Chest Plate (Optimal)(Infused)
Rank: Epic (Evolvable)
Passive 1 – Reverse Scale: Covering the key weakness of a Black Dragon, this item allows no harm to come to the reverse scale while equipped.
Active 1 – Destruction Barrier: Create a barrier of Destruction Energy that negates 20% of damage for 2 minutes. Cooldown: 4 minutes.｣
The first passive here had not changed for obvious reasons, but the active skill had increased the damage negation from 10% to 20%, while the duration had also gone up from a minute to 2. As for the cooldown, it had decreased from 5 minutes to 4.
｢Dragorugio – Pauldrons (2) (Optimal)(Infused)
Rank: Epic (Evolvable)
Passive 1 – Resistance: Physical and Magical Resistance is increased by 30%.
Active 1 – Energy Gather: Drag in a torrent of Worldly Energy that reduces the cooldown of one of the set equipment's active skills. Cooldown: 8 minutes.｣
The first passive here was one of the reasons why Draco was so darn hard to kill or damage. What had been a 20% increase to physical and magical resistance was now 30%.
When one remembered that void monsters had a similar resistance but at 90%, one could only wonder how unkillable this fellow would become once this reached higher percentages…
As for the active skill, it remained the same, only that the cooldown had decreased from 10 minutes to 8.
｢Dragorugio – Arm Guards (2) (Optimal)(Infused)
Rank: Epic (Evolvable)
Passive 1 – Speed Boost: Attack speed is increased by 30%.
Active 1 – Rapid Hands: Drastically increase attack speed by 120% for 15 seconds. Cooldown: 2 minutes.｣
The first passive had gone from 20% to 30%. At this point, the wings had already been added to the tiger, but this gave the same tiger a flamethrower custom made by Tesla.
As for the active, it had experienced an explosive increase. The attack speed boost had gone from 100% to 120%, the duration from 10 seconds to 15, and the cooldown from 3 minutes to 2.
It usually didn't get better than this, and Rapid hands was a skill Draco used a lot.
｢Dragorugio – Knee Guards (2) (Optimal)(Infused)
Rank: Epic (Evolvable)
Passive 1 – Speed Aura: Movement speed is increased by 30%.
Active 1 – Rapid Legs: Drastically increase movement speed by 120% for 15 seconds. Cooldown: 2 minutes.｣
As an item that mirrored the opposite of its kind, the knee guards had also gone through a great improvement. The first passive had also gone up by 10%, making Draco's movement speed in and out of combat better.
The active also had the speed boost increase by 20%, the duration by 5 seconds, and the cooldown reduce by 1 minute, same as the one that came before.
All in all, Draco was pleased. His set had become stronger, but the issue of upgrading its rank was still a troubling matter that he had no idea how to resolve. However, Draco was more interested in checking the changes to the set as a whole.
After all, that was where the most important details lay, so after mulling it over, Draco opened up his wings and began flying at horrible speeds towards the Evergreen Manor.
At his current flight speed, he would reach there in under a minute, so he decided to use that time to check out the last of his changes.
