Heir of the Ancient Spear God, Night Assassin, Arcane Mage, Poison Warlock and Heir of the Ghost King.
Corey ruminated over these five classes as he tried to think of the pros and cons of each of the five classes which were actually extremely good classes.
The first class, Heir of the Ancient Spear God, according to Corey's guess, was mainly a physical based class.
Although the idea of having an extremely high talent in using spears was appealing, Corey knew that he was severely lacking when it came to non-physical attacks and he definitely needed to have non-physical based attacks.
Although the class might give non-physical based attacks in the future, Corey was not sure.
Besides, the old man told him that when he becomes strong enough or when he has the ability, he could unlock some of the seals on the ancient spear, so who knows, he might gain some non-physical based attacks from the spear.
The second class, Night Assassin was a class which had lots of potential and honestly, Corey could think of ways to utilize the class to make him a dangerous and feared person to his future enemies.
Although Corey had ideas on how to utilize the class, he also knew that the class would definitely not be suitable in frontal confrontations and this had a chance of affecting Corey in the future.
"The class might eventually give me the ability to fight my enemies in frontal confrontations in the future, but as of now, I'll probably be disadvantaged whenever I fight people in frontal confrontations."
Corey spoke as he placed one hand on his chin with his brows slightly furrowed.
Being disadvantaged in fights was something that occurred on a regularly basis towards Corey and although, he was used to it, he was tired of it.
Corey's eyes moved away from the class, then he looked at the third class.
Corey muttered with his brows furrowed deeply.
The Arcane Mage class was one of the classes he was more inclined to choose because the class would fix a major problem he currently had, his lack of non-physical based skills.
Although he wasn't sure what the class would give him if he chose it, what he knew was that he would gain magical knowledge and from that magical knowledge, he could create his own spells.
Not only that, Corey could decide to test and create his own spells in The Library Of Records where he would not have to worry about harming himself.
All in all, the pros of the Arcane Mage class was a lot and it definitely had a lot of potential, but although it had potential, there was one thing Corey was worried about.
Most mage skills had to deal with elements.
The abilities of most mages used the elements and according to the old man and the Paragon Ancestor, the Supremes were like the masters of the elements and although, he had not encountered a Supreme before, he would most likely be at odds with them since he was now a Paragon.
"There should be other types of magic apart from elemental magic.
Maybe illusion magic, summoning magic, dream magic?"
Corey mumbled with a tone which contained uncertainty as he looked at the Arcane Mage class written on the translucent screen.
"Let's just say there are other types of magic that are not elemental magic, would I gain knowledge that's different from elemental magic from my first tier up?
Even if I do get, would the type of magic be useful for me now?
Can it help me in the Underworld?
Can it protect my life?"
Corey released a sigh as he rubbed his forehead while shaking his head for a few seconds.
After a few seconds, he decided to move away from the Arcane Mage class and focus on the next class, Poison Warlock.
Poison Warlock was a class which according to Corey's guess, was given to him because of his change in physique and the poison infinity crystal in his body.
According to the Universal System, warlocks were talented beings in terms of combat, mana, war and so on.
Corey guessed that the reason he was given that class was because of his new physique which was no longer human.
Although Warlocks were extremely talented individuals and had very high potential, Corey was apprehensive about one thing, that was the poison aspect of the class.
Corey was not the type of person that liked to deal with things related to plants.
That was one of the reasons he frowned when the Paragon Ancestor gave him the Alchemy Catalogue.
Although, right now, Corey knew he should have no problem in understanding things about plants, plants just didn't fascinate him that much.
But despite the fact that plants did not fascinate him, Corey knew that the Poison Warlock was one of the best classes among the five classes provided to him.
The last class, Heir of The Ghost King was also a class that piqued Corey's interest because if the class gave Corey the ability to be incorporeal, Corey could most definitely use it to escape from the Underworld.
Not only that, the class could give him the ability to control ghosts which was literally him having an army at his beck and call… He believed.
Now, although the class had it's pros which the other classes definitely did not have, the class also had a few things which made Corey to look at the class less.
In terms of having the ability to be corporeal, he had Rhea for that and not only that, the title of the class was something that made Corey to hesitate when it came to the class.
Corey was not worried about been a ghost, no, what he was worried about was the 'Heir' title of the class.
Just like the first class, 'Heir of the Ancient Spear God' and this class, 'Heir of the Ghost King', Corey had apprehensions choosing the two classes because the class might limit him in the future.
The classes were titled heir and just from that name, it meant taking over the 'Ancient Spear God' and the 'Ghost King' who were definitely not as strong as the Paragon Ancestor or the All-Father.
It wouldn't be a surprise if he encountered a brick wall when he tried to reach higher levels just because he was the heir of either the 'Ancient Spear God' or the 'Ghost King'.
So mainly due to that, Corey did not plan on choosing either the 'Heir of the Ancient Spear God' or the 'Heir of the Ghost King'.
Also, neither did he plan on choosing the Night Assassin class because he wanted a class that would give him skills that were not purely physical.
"So I guess it's between Arcane Mage and Poison Warlock."
Corey mumbled and had deeply furrowed brows as he looked at the two classes.
His eyes lingered more on the Arcane Mage class as it seemed more appealing to him since he would have more freedom and would also be able to create his own spells.
Not only that, although the class was purely a mage based class, Corey had the elemental breathing technique which the Paragon Ancestor gave to him and the breathing technique could be used to physically strengthen his body.
And he also had the Paragon Martial Arts skill which would help him in combat.
The more Corey thought about the Arcane Mage class, the more inclined he was towards it.
His lips parted open, wanting to choose the class, but just as he was about to speak, a thought came to his mind and he frowned.
"If I choose the Arcane Mage class, I'll have to create my spells while learning more about magic, but… Can't I do that without the class?
Can't I learn more about magic and also create my own spells without the class?
I just need to find books or places which explain about magic and I can definitely learn them. I don't need the Universal System or the class to help me with that right?"
Corey mumbled as he looked at the Arcane Mage class with an intense pondering expression.
The more he thought about what he just said, the more he felt that he was right.
"It would just be more time consuming for me."
Corey once again thought about the poison infinity crystal which he had in his body and he felt that if he doesn't utilize the poison infinity crystal and ignores it, it would be wasteful since it would definitely take some time before he gets another infinity crystal.
Corey sighed a few seconds later, then he spoke:
"Let's just hope I don't regret this."
"I choose the Poison Warlock class."
As soon as Corey spoke, the words on the translucent screen changed.
[THE CLASS, POISON WARLOCK HAS BEEN CHOSEN]
[COMMENCING TRIAL FOR THE CLASS, POISON WARLOCK]
[PLEASE ENTER THE PORTAL AND…]

[BEGINNING INSPECTION OF UNKNOWN SUPERIOR MARTIAL ARTS]
[THE SKILLS: HERBAL KNOWLEDGE AND ANATOMICAL KNOWLEDGE HAVE BEEN GIVEN]
[ALL REWARDS HAVE BEEN GIVEN]
Corey spoke with a baffled expression and tone as he looked at the disappearing translucent screen.
Although the continuous error and cancelling of the inspection confused Corey at first, Corey remembered that the Paragon Ancestor said that he tweaked a few things so that the Universal System would not know he was a Paragon.
But despite knowing that the errors and cancelling of the inspection was the work of the Paragon Ancestor, it was still kind of funny and interesting whenever it happened.
But what was not funny was the two skills Corey got as a reward from the Universal System.
Although a part of him somewhat expected that, another part of him hoped that he would get offensive skills that he could use immediately.
But it seemed that his luck for an easy life was as terrible as always.
Corey sighed and just as he sighed, the translucent screen which disappeared previously, appeared once again and this time, the words on it were different.
Corey with a curious expression, looked at the translucent screen and read the contents.
[DUE TO THE PLAYER, COREY ZANE JUNIOR BECOMING A TIER 1 BEING, YOUR TALENT, OMNISCIENCE HAS LEVELED UP]
[PLEASE CHOOSE ONE SKILL AMONG THE SKILLS…]
[EYES OF OMNISCIENCE]

[TONGUE OF OMNISCIENCE]
[HEART OF OMNISCIENCE]
[BREATH OF OMNISCIENCE]
"Another list of choices?"
Corey spoke with an extremely baffled expression seeing the list before him.
Before he had to choose his class, now… he has to choose a skill that was related to his Omniscience talent.
"I didn't expect this."
Corey mumbled as he saw the list of choices before him.
He tapped on one of the skill, 'Eyes of Omniscience', wanting to read it's description but when he tapped on the skill, nothing happened.
He tapped it again, but nothing happened.
He tapped the next skill and once again, nothing happened.
He did it for all the skills but no description of the skills appeared before him.
"So I don't get a description this time around?"
Corey frowned as he realized that, then he sighed as he looked at the list once again.
"Eyes of Omniscience, Ears of Omniscience, Tongue of Omniscience, Heart of Omniscience and Breath of Omniscience."
"Which shall I choose this time around."
Corey mumbled as he stroked his chin with a pondering expression once again.
