Chapter 945 [Bonus ] Rank 6 NPC Beauties 1
The kind of energy that Hikari, Zaine and Roma were swallowing was enough to upset almost the entire Island in the Void. For sure if they did this outside, the entire Continent would feel their power up, which made one wonder, how did the current Rank 7's power up?
The answer to that was pretty much why there were very few, if any, Rank 5 and above NPCs in the main plane. Truthfully, leveling up was hard, but not too difficult if you want to spend time on it.
However, one would have to prepare materials for their ranks up, especially Aether Crystals in order to create Aetheric Energy. After all, there was no way you could just rely on Worldly Energy after Rank 5.
And now you knew why Aether Crystals have such a nonsensically high value. If Draco said he would give out all the ones he had to various forces, many new Rank 7's could be born, but he was not that benevolent yet.
As usual, Zaine shone with a bright blue light that was infused with lightning of many colors while her body shifted into her true form. She mostly swallowed up Aetheric Energy, and about 15% of the content was Divine Energy.
As for Roma, she alternately shone with a dark green light as she shifted into a grey-skinned Ultima Sunt form. She also mostly swallowed exorbitant amounts of Aetheric Energy, with about 20% being Divine Energy.
Hikari was naturally the most abnormal. She glowed with a creamy white light that enveloped her like a veil, and she only swallowed pure Divine Energy with hints of Origin here and there.
After all, she currently had a divine State of Being and Source Origin, only lacking the Combat Rank. It was obvious that she had evolved past Aetheric Energy at this point.
Just like when they were at Rank 4 going to Rank 5, the three NPC women spent about twice as long compared to their their previous Rank Up absorbing energy.
Zaine finished after 24 hours, Roma after 27, and Hikari after exactly 48 hours. When Hikari was finally done, they all opened their eyes at the same time as if in sync.
Their eyes gleamed with power and their bodies were full of might. They had reached the level Draco and Eva did in the previous timeline and had been stuck at, so the Evil Duo could understand how they were likely feeling more than anyone.
Draco and Eva used the clan management panel to check their status screens as usual.
