529 The Second Skill Extraction
"Congratulations, you have obtained the skill - Warrior Body!"
Just when the notification came in, Lin Huang felt a change in his strength. It clearly came from the Warrior Body skill that he had just obtained. As he sensed his body thoroughly, he was surprised to find out that the skill matched the Undefeatable Warrior that Mr. Fu had given him earlier. He thought the upgrade in his body strength was not efficient ever since he leveled up to Transcendent, so he desired this skill intensely. It seemed like the skill had exceeded his expectations.
"This skill is awesome!" He nodded in satisfaction and looked at the remaining seven vacant skill slots.
"I'm only left with seven slots, but I have twelve Skill Extraction Cards. It's not enough for me!"
He then looked at the detailed description on the Skill Extraction Cards.
"Skill Extraction Card: Once activated, you can randomly extract a skill from a Monster Card.
"Remark 1: The skill extraction will exclude the skills that you have extracted before.
"Remark 2: You can only use this once on each Monster Card.
"Remark 3: The activation will not affect any of the skills that the Monster Card possesses.
"Remark 4: Please do not activate this card if you don't have any vacant slots! If you do, the extracted skill using the Skill Extraction Card will disappear if there're no vacant slots within 24 hours. A second extraction of the same Monster Card is prohibited after that."
"Hmm, a random extraction again and only once for each Monster Card… That means if there's one particular skill that I want, I won't have the opportunity to obtain it anymore if I don't get that skill during the extraction," Lin Huang frowned as he thought.
The Skill Extraction Card was the card that he had always desired as he wanted to extract skills from some Monster Cards that he owned. For instance, Charcoal's Element Immunity, Bloody's Supreme Intelligence, Ghastly's Deceptive and Spiritual secret skills were skills that he desired.
"I have so few vacant skill slots…" Lin Huang mumbled to himself as he looked at the remaining seven slots. He would have to pick wisely for the skill extraction. The first Monster Card that he took out was Charcoal. Element Immunity was a skill that he lusted for as he looked through Charcoal's skills. It was already at an advanced level now where it could provide 99% immunity to elemental damages.
Aside from increasing Lin Huang's survival ability tremendously, the skill would also give him the advantage whenever he was fighting close-range with a person who was talented in elemental attacks. Just like his encounter with the Fiery Swordfiend earlier, it was difficult for him to fight it at a close distance as he would be burnt. However, with Element Immunity, it would not be an issue anymore. He would not need to worry about getting burnt. All he needed to do was to slash the monster with his sword.
Naturally, aside from Element Immunity, the Draconic secret skill, Dragon Power, and Dragon Realm were great additions too. He would be happy to extract any of the skills. Lin Huang then crushed the Skill Extraction Card after some thought.
"Targeted Monster Card - Charcoal.
"Activating skill extraction… Excluding Absolute Defence… Randomly extracting a skill… Random extraction has been completed!
"Congratulations, you have obtained the skill - Elemental Immunity!"
"Elemental Immunity!" Lin Huang was ecstatic to hear that since it was the skill that he wanted.
"Elemental Immunity (Advanced): Passive skill, 99% immune to most elemental attacks."
It took him a while to get over his excitement after reading the skill's detailed description. He then recalled Charcoal and took out the second Monster Card, which was Bai, and laid out his second Skill Extraction Card at the same time.
The skill that he desired most from Bai was the Blood secret skill. As he already had Vampire Particles, if he obtained the Blood secret skill, he would not have to spend time figuring out how to use Vampire Particles. Instead, he could just use the Vampire Particles directly like how Bai did. He crushed the second Skill Extraction Card immediately.
"Targeted Monster Card - Bai.
"Activating skill extraction… Excluding Vampire Particles… Randomly extracting a skill… Random extraction has been completed!
"Congratulations, you have obtained the skill - Holy Power!"
"Oh!" Lin Huang was surprised when he found out that Holy Power was extracted.
"It seems like I'm still not European. It was just a coincidence that I obtained the Elemental Immunity just now."
Although it was not the Blood secret skill that he wanted, Holy Power was a great skill as well. Once the skill was activated, many would fear him. It was a pretty cool skill.
He got over it as he thought about that. He took out Bloody's card together with his third Skill Extraction Card after recalling Bai's card. What Lin Huang desired the most from Bloody was Supreme Intelligence. His Leech Pods had now been upgraded to the Parasitic secret skill as Bloody had leveled up. He had all of the parasitic skills that Bloody possessed. Therefore, besides Supreme Intelligence, there was nothing else that he wanted.
He then crushed the third Skill Extraction.
"Targeted Monster Card - Bloody.
"Activating skill extraction… Excluding Parasitic secret skill… Randomly extracting a skill… Random extraction has been completed!
"Congratulations, you have obtained the skill - Absolute Control!"
"What the hell?" Lin Huang was annoyed when he heard Xiao Hei's notification.
Absolute Control was a skill to boost parasitic control. To be honest, the skill was useful to Bloody but not to Lin Huang. He did not have such a powerful brain as Bloody did. If he was to control a creature, the most he could was one or two at a time. The skill was not useful for a wider coverage of parasites. Unlike Supreme Intelligence, Bloody could control tens of thousands of monsters with the Absolute Control skill.
Out of three extractions, Lin Huang had only gotten one skill that he was satisfied with. He was thinking if he should wash his face. Then, he took out Ghastly's card and the fourth Skill Extraction Card after recalling Bloody. Ghastly had Supreme Intelligence in its list of skills as well.
"It'd better be Supreme Intelligence this time! If not, I wouldn't mind getting the Deceptive or Spirit secret skill," Lin Huang mumbled to himself as he read the skills descriptions at the back of the card.
"Targeted Monster Card - Ghastly.
"Activating skill extraction… Excluding Doll secret skill… Randomly extracting a skill… Random extraction has been completed!
"Congratulations, you have obtained the skill - Telekinesis!"
"I've already gotten Demonic Telepathy. Why would I need this Telekinesis?! Isn't it just a repetition? Xiao Hei, I think there's someone pranking me behind your Skill Extraction machine. I'm protesting!"
"I'm glad to hear your customer feedback, but there's nothing that I can do!" Xiao Hei replied.
"However, I could give you a helpful suggestion. Integrate all the similar skills so that you can get more skill slots."
"That's right. Since they're both the same skills, I should be able to integrate them so that I can extract one more skill." Xiao Hei's suggestion calmed Lin Huang down. He then took out a Skill Combination Card immediately.
"Activate Skill Combination Card!"
"There's only one set of skills to be integrated."
"Integrate psychic skills: Telekinesis, Demonic Telepathy"
"Are you sure you want to integrate them?"
"Please do." Lin Huang nodded.
"Skill Combination Card has been consumed. Monster Skills Telekinesis and Demonic Telepathy have been consumed. Producing new Skill Card…
"Congratulations, you have obtained a new psychic card: Divine Telekinesis (Pseudo)
"Divine Telekinesis (Pseudo): A powerful telekinesis that only demigods can activate, comes with all telekinesis functions.
"Remark 1: The strength of telekinesis depends on the user's spiritual strength.
"Remark 2: Can be used together with Holy Power for better boost.
Lin Huang was not completely surprised as he looked at the new Skill Card. He looked at the card thoroughly and tried using it. It took him a while to calm down from his excitement.
"Sigh, it would be perfect to have Supreme Intelligence. My spirit strength could get a boost as well as the strength of this Divine Telekinesis…"
He then proceeded with the skill extraction, full of disappointment.
Soon, the skill extraction ended. Lin Huang obtained the Purification Light from Kylie and Enhanced Regeneration from Tyrant. He used another Skill Combination Card to integrate the Demonic Regeneration with the Enhanced Regeneration. He obtained Divine Regeneration (Pseudo), which was a surprise to him. He got a useless skill, Revival, from Sanguine. He had extracted skills seven times in total. However, due to the two skill integrations, he was left with two out of seven vacant slots. He decided to save the two slots for Lancelot and the Regal Sword Killer.
After extracting the skills, Lin Huang then looked at his personal exclusive card.
