7: Skill Tree

Now all that was left to do was figure out what to do with my TP. I didn’t have the slightest clue what they were for and it wasn’t like there was something to give me hints on what to do with them.

So while I warmed myself up, doing my stretches and jogging in place, I focused really hard on those two letters on my status. I willed the menu to show me something, anything that I could do to use those points.

Dear Readers. Scrapers have recently been devasting our views. At this rate, the site (creativenovels .com) might...let's just hope it doesn't come to that. If you are reading on a scraper site. Please don't.

A quiet ding went off in my head and I immediately put my guard up, snapping my status closed as I readied my spear. But nothing else happened. No tell-tale ringing of an approaching invader. Just a flashing exclamation point in the corner of my vision, telling me I had a new notification.

Flushing with embarrassment, I focused on the notif and it opened up in front of me.

Congratulations! You have unlocked the skill tree!

So all that thinking hard stuff actually worked? Epic!

I nearly opened my mouth to say its name but remembered the blizzard going on and instead said it mentally.

Skill Tree

Available Skills:

[Parry] – 1 TP

[Sweep] – 3 TP

[Toughen] – 5 TP (Requires Defense Attribute)

Upgradeable Skills:

[Measure Bribe] – 2 TP

[Lesser Radar] – 3 TP

[Thrust] – 2 TP

[Burst] – 2 TP

[Charge] – 2 TP

Well, then. I had quite a dilemma on my hands. I could either buy [Parry] or upgrade one of my current skills. I could eventually learn [Parry] myself by fighting more and who knows how long it would take to naturally upgrade a skill…So I’d forego getting a new skill and focus on upgrading my current ones.

But which skill to upgrade? [Measure Bribe] was immediately out; that skill sounded shady to me. [Charge] I’ll also hold off on; while a Strength boost was nice, but not what I thought I would need to survive a fight. That left [Thrust] and [Burst]. I would be doing a lot of both in the oncoming fights but I felt having a higher [Burst] level – higher AGI boosts and longer-lasting effects – would be more useful.

I purchased the upgrade for [Burst] with just a thought.

You have upgraded the skill [Burst] to level 2. [Burst] now boosts AGI by +7 and lasts for 2 seconds.

When a familiar ringing went off in my head, I closed the notifications and readied myself for battle.
