9 The Genesis Tree

Ding!

Just like a tree that grew from a sapling to become one hella big tree, the screen in front of me started to extend upwards until I couldn't even see the ends of the screen anymore.

Ah, quite nostalgic. Back then, the tree was also unfathomable as well. Now what Genesis Skill should I pick?

No wait, wrong question. What is the Genesis Tree?

Being one of the top players of Infinite Stick Evolution, I can tell you for a fact that the Genesis Tree is actually something commonly found in any MMORPGs, just with a new name.

The Genesis Tree is ISE's equivalent of the Class Mastery system.

But instead of being limited to only one class, the Genesis Tree envelops all of the species that could be evolved into through the Existence Evolution System. The Genesis Tree acts like a living tree, adapting to every possible change there is.

And if your train of thought is correct, then the Genesis Skills are the skills you obtain from the Mastery.

With that taken care of, let's check the skills that are found on the extreme bottom of the screen, the root.

Well to be honest, the skills found on the root are somewhat weak, but they're what you need to grab those extremely awesome skills later on. Who knows, these basic skills might even save your life someday.

Okay, we have two choices.

~~~~~~~~

Genesis Tree (Layer 1):

[Stick Siphoning]

[Enhanced Vessel]

~~~~~~~~

Oh, I almost forgot. The Genesis Tree has around 99 layers of skills, with some layers having more skills than other layers like Layer 5 and Layer 25.

Anyways, back to the topic.

'Identify [Stick Siphoning]'

~~~~~~~~

[Stick Siphoning] (Layer 1)

[Level]: 1/2

With the stick attuned to the will of the Grand Tree, the stick has gained the ability to ascend beyond normal sticks and be born anew. With this skill, the stick can absorb the energy found in the wooden items around it and transform it into HP. If the HP bar is full, the energy is transformed into SP.

Rate of energy transformation: 10 seconds per 1 HP/SP.

Cost to unlock: 1 Genesis Point

~~~~~~~~

And that's how [Stick Siphoning] works. Suck the living shit out of sticks or other wood things until they shrivel up and I become energized.

Now, onto the next one.

'Identify [Enhanced Vessel]'

~~~~~~~~

[Enhanced Vessel] (Layer 1)

[Level]: 1/2

With the stick attuned to the will of the Grand Tree, the stick has gained the ability to ascend beyond normal sticks and be born anew. With this skill, the stick gains a space within its body where it can hold more HP and SP that the stick can use.


Rate of expansion: 2x the original amount

Cost to unlock: 1 Genesis Point

~~~~~~~~

So with [Enhanced Vessel], I would basically have 10 HP and 20 SP according to its rate of expansion. That's actually pretty nice to be honest. I would be more tanky than before and I would have more SP to use for attacks before running out.

Before I forget, what's the rate of SP regeneration?

Ding!

~~~~~~~~

Current rate of SP regeneration: 1 SP per 30 seconds.

~~~~~~~~

Hm...should I choose [Stick Siphoning] or [Enhanced Vessel]?

If I chose [Enhanced Vessel], I would be able to last longer in fights wherever I may be.

If I chose [Stick Siphoning], I would last for an extremely long time if I'm in a woody environment. Instead of regenerating 1 SP every 30 seconds, I'd be regenerating around 4 SP per 30 seconds. Not only that, I'd be practically invincible as well with my HP regeneration.

To be extremely tanky in every environment or to be somewhat invincible in a woody environment?

...

You know what? I think I've made my choice.

Click.

~~~~~~~~

You have chosen [Stick Siphoning].

Once accepted, you cannot choose any other skill from the same layer. Would you like to continue with this decision?

~~~~~~~~

'Well yes.'

Ding!

~~~~~~~~

1 Genesis Point has been deducted.

[Stick Siphoning] has been chosen as the Layer 1 Genesis Skill.

~~~~~~~~

And there. That's my choice. Now you may ask, why would I choose [Stick Siphoning] over [Enhanced Vessel]? Wouldn't [Enhanced Vessel] be better in the long run as it would multiply the amount of SP I can hold with the [SP Storage] skill...

FUCK!

WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT EARLIER?! FUCK THAT WOULD MAKE ME LAST LIKE AN EXTREMELY LONG TIME IN FIGHTING! THAT WOULD ALSO MAKE ME MOVE FASTER FOR A LONG TIME AS WELL!

AHHHHHH I REGRET!

I REGRET!

Haah...breathe in...breathe out. Oh wait, I'm a stick so I can't breathe but anyways, relax Aurus.

There's no use crying over spilled milk. Even though [SP Storage] and [Enhanced Vessel] is a great combination which would possibly unlock a special evolution for B-grade Inanimate, this choice would also possibly land me a special evolution as well.

Why?

'Open Evolution Tree.'

Ding!

Because of this.

Once you have evolved into C-grade Inaninate, you gain access to this screen where you can see the requirements for the next evolution.

~~~~~~~~

D-Grade Inanimate:

[Twig]

C-Grade Inanimate:

[Branch] [Long Branch] [Wind Branch (Special)]

B-Grade Inanimate:

????

~~~~~~~~

But it only pops up when you're at the max level, which I have long way to go.

Anyways, I still have a Genesis Point to use so let's upgrade [Stick Siphoning] to its max level.

'Upgrade my Layer 1 Genesis Skill.'

Ding!

~~~~~~~~

Would you like to upgrade [Stick Siphoning] to Level 2? This would cost 1 Genesis Point.

~~~~~~~~

There's no going back anyway so why hesitate.

'Absolutely.'

~~~~~~~~

1 Genesis Point has been deducted.

[Stick Siphoning] has been upgraded to Level 2.

[Stick Siphoning] has reached the MAX level.

~~~~~~~~

And there you go, [Stick Siphoning] is now maxed. Wanna check it out? I'm sure you do.

'Examine [Stick Siphoning]'

~~~~~~~~

[Stick Siphoning] (Layer 1)

[Level]: 2/2

With the stick attuned to the will of the Grand Tree, the stick has gained the ability to ascend beyond normal sticks and be born anew. With this skill, the stick can absorb the energy found in the wooden items around it and transform it into HP. If the HP bar is full, the energy is transformed into SP.

Rate of energy transformation: 5 seconds per 1 HP/SP.

~~~~~~~~

In short, the time it takes to transform energy into HP or SP has been halved, which turns my rate of SP regeneration into 7 SP per 30 seconds. It's not a lot, but hey, you've gotta start somewhere.

Anyways, before we go to that place I said earlier, that place that was extremely far from the 'experience heaven' place, let's see how much I've progressed these past 5 days.

~~~~~~~~

Active Skills:

[Steam Roll Lv. 1], [Wind Splinter Lv. 1], [Wind Infusion Lv. 1]

Passive Skills:

[Soul Perception I Lv. 1], [SP Storage Lv. 1]

Genesis Skills:

[L1 Stick Siphoning Lv. MAX]

~~~~~~~~~

I've gained 4 skills ever since I've evolved into a Wind Branch, which is definitely a great feeling.

And now, let's move to that place.

'[Steam Roll]'

The green glow around me is now mixed with a faint blue as I move. I'm finally moving at rate of 1 meter per minute, which is great.

Anyways I'll update you guys when I've reached that place...or if something interesting happens.
