p dir= ”ltr ”>Soon after he finished explaining, Dirac looked at Ulan nervously.

‘If everything went as planned, he should have failed the mana measurement test, at least in the first exam….’

But Ulan passed with flying colors.

And that too using something that didn't quite look like magic.

‘If I had known, I would have prepared more rigorously to make the other exams more challenging for him’

The second and third tests in〘Mana Detection〙test were slightly modified versions of the talent test he'd taken the previous year.

He thought Ulan would fail before then.

But in retrospect, it was too late to regret.
As he swallowed my anxiety, the test began.

“Yuffie Davien, 3 minutes, 51 seconds.”

“Jervaine Colt, 4 minutes, 33 seconds!”

The time it took each examinee to pick up the spear and hit the target was announced.
Although the duration varied for each examinee, most of them took about four minutes.

“Dilia Arpen.
1 minute, 15 seconds!”

Dilia, who had excelled in the previous test, also managed to break the one-minute mark this time.

Finding the mana core and triggering the mana reaction took only 30 seconds, but her inexperience with the spear made her waste time.

“Ugh, your strength is still weak, which is why I've told you so many times to train your strength and stamina in addition to magic,” Deflyn murmured, sticking out her tongue.

Despite her pouting, her expression remained bright.
Even taking over a minute, she was still the fastest among the examinees.


Soon afterward, it was Ulan's turn.

This time, the stares were just as intense, but a few students noticed something unusual.

“Hey, doesn't that spear look a bit different?”

“Yeah, it is.
It's bigger than we were told.”

“It seems heavier somehow.”

This is why I hate those who are perceptive.
Dirac frowned.
As they said, he'd definitely pulled a fast one on Ulan this time.

‘Eight stacks of weight enhancement alone, plus a special gravity enhancement spell.’

The weight was such that even ten knights wouldn't be able to lift it.
No matter how strong Ulan was, it seemed impossible for him to lift it.

However, a strange sense of unease crept in.

Could he effortlessly do it again this time? Though he harbored such concerns deep within, he vigorously shook his head to dispel his worries.

‘No, that's not possible.
No matter how strong he is, there are limits to what a human can achieve.
Unless he belongs to the legendary giant race, lifting that is simply impossible.’

Thus, he became certain this time.

That guy wouldn't easily pass the test.

“Begin!”

The assistant supervisor's cry echoed through the examination hall.

Ulan walked confidently and grasped the spear.

Then, he lifted it with apparent ease.

“……..What?”

Dirac muttered, bewildered.

Why did that sound reach him?

He hurriedly checked if the enchantment had been undone, but that wasn't the case.
The magic inscriptions etched onto the spear proved that.

'Then, that means…'

Did he just lift it with sheer strength? Really?


At that moment, Dirac's eyes widened in astonishment.

Ulan hurled the spear.

Quaaaaaaang!

The steel spear tore through the air with a shrieking sound, piercing the target in a single stroke.
Not stopping there, it even shattered the outer wall behind the target.

Kuwung! Kugugugu!

The force was so mighty that the entire examination hall trembled momentarily from the shockwave.

“Ul, Ulan Bator.
5 seconds.”

“…….”

Silence descended once more.

The examinees chatted amongst themselves.

“What the hell? Did he use magic?”

“It looks like he just lifted it with brute strength…..”

“Isn't that even more impressive if it's not magic?”

In any case, he had fulfilled the requirements of the test.

And the result…

Ulan scored 5 points again.

Dirac's plans crumbled once again, and his face turned bright red as if he might explode at any moment.
On the other hand, Dilia, who scored only 4 points, pouted in disappointment.

'He's done something absurd.'

It was the kind of reaction one might have when greatly vexed.

Perhaps Ulan easily passed the exams, snatching away points with a method that seemed incredulous.

However, Dirac couldn't afford to take it lightly.
If Ulan had approached the exams nonchalantly, who knows what kind of trouble he could have caused himself.

Having accumulated a total of 10 points…

The final test was upon them.
