Advent of the Archmage - chapter-725
When Link saw the Ruler of Light and Darkness, the other saw him as well.
That instant, their gazes crossed the boundless distance of time and
space and collided. Their minds also crashed at high speed.
“It seems that I’ve underestimated you, Lord of Ferde.”
“I still have to thank you for your guidance. In this aspect, I should
call you my tutor.” Link was talking about the God of Light and the
game system’s help.
“That was the stupidest thing I’ve done in my life, but it has helped
me too. I at least know about your power.”
“And I, you. I also learned about you through the system.” Link
smiled. He’d indeed used the game system’s help, but when he left
Fedaro, he’d cut ties with the God of Light. At that time, he was only
Level-14. His understanding of the world and himself now was incomparable
to back then.
“Hahaha, you’re still too young, and you developed too quickly. Your
manipulation of power is too far from me. This requires time to settle
in, but that’s what you lack most. If you fight me, you’ll definitely
They had a huge distance between them, but the fight of thoughts had
already started. The Ruler of Light and Darkness used sharp words to
crush Link’s confidence. If Link’s soul faltered at all, he would
definitely lose in the later battle.
At their level, any flaw could lead to defeat.
Link saw through this all. He knew that when their minds had collided,
the final battle had already started. Everything the Ruler of Light and
Darkness had said earlier was the truth too.
He now had the same power, but his ability to use the power was far from
this ancient god who’d lived for thousands of years. If they fought
alone, he was destined to lose. But no one had said they had to fight
“You think I’m alone?” Link burst into laughter.
“Huh? You’re not alone?” The Ruler of Light and Darkness was
shocked. He’d slowed down, and his mind scanned the Sea of Void around
Firuman and the other realms, afraid that another true god would be
He was absolutely confident in killing Link, but if there was another
one, he would just turn and run without saying anything. But he didn’t
find any sign of another true god.
A true god was a mighty existence. They would definitely cause a
commotion if they appeared. For example, Link had lit the Divine Fire in
a remote swamp. But once he did and entered the Realm of Gods, the entire
Firuman could see him.
At that moment, no matter if it was in the ancient Firuman Continent, the
Aragu Continent that had just been added in, or the Isle of Dawn,
everyone could see a white sun rise up in the horizon.
That was Link.
The Ruler of Light and Darkness didn’t see a third sun now or before.
However, he was still worried. He kept scanning the Firuman Realm.
“You can’t find him now.” Link laughed. “But he really does
exist, and it’s not only one. This is the biggest difference between
Hearing this, the Ruler of Light and Darkness froze. After a few seconds,
he suddenly stopped and stared at Link in suspicion. “The mystery of
time is obscure and unpredictable. Perhaps you can see the future, but
you cannot use future strength!”
“I obviously can’t use the illusory future, but I know the definite
As he spoke, Link brought the Ruler of Light and Darkness’ mind and
moved to Ferde at the coast of the Firuman Continent. Their vision zoomed
in and in until it stopped on a young man studying magic by the window.
He was handsome and slender. His eyes shone with wisdom. It was the
“Can you see his future?” Link asked.
Time was indeed difficult to predict, but if one just observed rather
than actually time-traveling, it was much easier. Both Link and the Ruler
of Light and Darkness could see easily.
The two both looked and saw Eliard’s actions speed up 100,000 times. A
day passed in a second; a year passed in five minutes. In this illusion,
Eliard kept strengthening, his reputation and status rising.
Around ten years later, he reached the pinnacle of Level-19. After
another year, he shone with majestic light. After that, the prediction
All prediction spells in the world only worked on mortals.
Seeing this, the Ruler of Light and Darkness was silent for a minute. He
obviously knew that Link and Eliard were good friends. Eleven years
later, Eliard would also light the Divine Fire. Judging from the light,
he wasn’t as strong as Link, but he was still a god. If he joined the
fight, the Ruler’s chances of winning would be reduced to almost
“And look here.” Link took the Ruler of Light and Darkness to the
other end of Firuman. There was a Beastman. He’d been practicing in the
yard, but he looked up at the sky when the new sun rose.
After just one glance, the Ruler of Light and Darkness said, “This
Beastman also has a mighty glow. It seems that he will also become a god
in the future.”
It was Avatar, the Glorious Warlord.
The divine light showed his nature. The Ruler of Light and Darkness knew
that if this Beastman became a god, he would definitely be Link’s ally.
If he faced three true gods, he would be lucky if he could even escape.
“And look at this one.” Link didn’t stop. He took the Ruler’s
mind to a woman with dark blue hair.
When the new sun rose, she wasn’t surprised at all. She just looked up
and smiled as if she’d predicted this. Then she disappeared and
continued playing with her blue magic fire gun. A few magic tigers were
playing in the forest not so far away.
It was Celine Flandre.
The Ruler of Light and Darkness looked and sighed. “I’ve been trying
to bring this daughter back, but I never succeeded… My daughter is your
She should’ve been his biggest help, but she’d ended up as his
enemy’s biggest ally. This was unbelievable.
Here, he’d almost given up on approaching Firuman. What he was thinking
now was where he should hide to avoid all these gods.
“Don’t go so fast. It’s not over.” Link laughed. He could sense
the ruler’s thoughts. A big opening had appeared in his will.
Even if he didn’t have these future allies, he still had a chance to
defeat the Ruler of Light and Darkness.
The Ruler had already started retreating. “I’ve given up. Goodbye,
Lord of Ferde. I hope your allies won’t become your enemy… Oh,
He realized he’d skipped something critical. “Wait, even if you can
have these true gods help you in the future, their power is still power.
It won’t come out of nowhere. The Firuman Realm can’t withstand so
many gods. It will collapse! Even if they come to the Sea of Void to
absorb power, it’ll still take time. You can’t make it in time!”
The Ruler of Light and Darkness laughed heartily. “Link, you almost got
me. Indeed, if I’d left, these mortals would become gods in the future.
But if I defeat you, their light will extinguish! You are the pioneer of
the Era of Gods. If I kill you, I will end it before it begins.”
He started speeding towards Firuman again.
Link also laughed. “Yes, you’re right. I will start the Era of Gods.
Every existence in the world has a chance to become a god. They can’t
become gods at the same time, but their knowledge and experience can all
be used by me! Ruler of Light and Darkness, you’ve lived for countless
years and have seen countless things, but you only have yourself. On the
other hand, I will have the knowledge of countless gods.”
As he spoke, countless images appeared around him. They were the people
who would become true gods in the future. They appeared and stood behind
him in the hundreds.
These hundreds of images all bowed to Link. This was their respect for
the pioneer as well as anticipation. They would give their knowledge,
experience, and techniques to Link so he could defeat this horrible enemy
and start a new era.
Link also bowed to them. Then these images buried into his body.
When Link finally straightened, his glow started dimming. It wasn’t
that he was weakening. Instead, his control over the power was increasing.
Finally, Link collected all the light. At a glance, he was no different
from a mortal. The only uniqueness was in his eyes. The black pupil was
gone. Instead, he had two spinning galaxies that contained boundless

Clang. The Ode of a Full Moon sang brightly and then went silent. The
only strangeness was that slivers of light streamed out of the cracks in
Now, Link’s power was at an indescribable level.
Now, his sword was ready to kill a god!
He gazed at the Ruler of Light and Darkness, looking down as if he was
the judge from the heavens.
“Do you choose life or death?”
