Kill The Hero – Chapter 108
[Frozen Forest of Violence]
-Maximum number of entries: 80
-Requirements: Level 60 and below
-Conditions: Defeat all the Brawlers in the Frozen Forest!
Oh Se-chan’s eyes which had been running over the latest dungeon report returned to the top of the document.
There, the number 23 caught his eye.
This was the sign that showed that the dungeon had been failed 23 times before, the fact was further emphasised by all of the failed dungeon reports that Oh Se-chan had personally browsed over.
But it was not strange.
‘I didn’t think it would go past 23.’
If as a dungeon broker he hadn’t had any interest in the world’s most famous 2 Floor dungeon, then that should be seen as forsaking his job.
No, it wasn’t about him being interested.
There seemed to be something that no one knew that caused everyone, even the Messiah Guild, to fail this dungeon.
It was because of this fact, that Oh Se-chan wondered about the dangers of the dungeon.
‘There was no official announcement, but even the Kunlun Guild had shown interest in the dungeon. It’s not going to be easy.’
He already knew all the players who went into the dungeon, the guilds they truly belonged to and the power they were hiding.
‘So if he clears it, it will be awesome.’
So it was meaningful.
‘It will make Isaac Ivanov’s name stand out.’
If he could successfully clear such a place, there was no telling what sort of merit that would have.
‘It would be the same as having a free pass to every valuable 3 Floor Dungeon.’
He felt happy just thinking about it.
‘He can do it.’
However what truly made Oh Se-chan feel pleased was that he was more confident in this attack than ever before.
‘He’ll definitely clear it, I’ll need to find out why the Kunlun Guild entered the dungeon’
It was at that moment.
“Hey, there’s a problem.”
One of his subordinates called out to him.
“What is it?”
“That…Kim Woo-jin made an unexpected move.”
Oh Se-chan raised an eyebrow at the words ‘unexpected move’.
“Did he suddenly take his mask off, stretch his hands to the sky and shout ‘Woo!’?”
“I think it’s better if you saw it yourself.”
Along with those words, his subordinate showed him a youtube video.
In the video, Kim Woo-jin was disguised as Isaac Ivanov.
-Don’t get in my way.
Oh Se-chan couldn’t help but smile at that.
“This guy is a real hunter.”
It was at that moment that his faith became conviction.
[Defeat 6,666 to advance to the next floor]
The moment the 80th player entered the dungeon, they all received a notification informing them about the conditions to clear the first floor.
It was more difficult than they’d expected.
The quest would take at least a week even if the 80 players managed to hunt 1000 monsters a day.
Usually after entering a dungeon, the players would gain an instinctive level of tension as soon as they received the quest notification even if they had enough skill and even if they had experience A+ rank Dungeons before.
However many of the players who entered the dungeon did not show any tension after they received the notification.
“What about Isaac?”
“What did that mean?”
What was in their heads instead was Isaac Ivanov and his words that they had heard before they entered the dungeon gate.
“Don’t get in his way?”
“Yeah, he told us to not bother him.”
Isaac Ivanov had told them to not disturb him.
“So we are in the way?”
“Damn it, what did he mean by interfering! We aren’t here to get in his way!”
Depending on their interpretation, those words had hurt the pride of those who had risked their lives to help Isaac Ivanov.
But not everyone was like that.
“Well, if it’s Isaac then it makes sense.”
“Right, with his style, we might end up becoming a hindrance.”
Some of them were embarrassed by Isaac Ivanov’s words, but some people also accepted them.
Especially those who had witnessed what happened in the Firefox Dungeon and had come to pay for the life they owed Isaac Ivanov.
“What are you talking about?”
“How would you know that?”
Those who had never witnessed Isaac Ivanov’s skills before posed questions to the others, and the ones who had witnessed his abilities before simply replied to them with smiles spread across their faces.
“You’ll know when you see it for yourself. That guy, he’s a real monster.”
It was at that moment.
A monster’s scream could be heard from afar.
It seemed the battle was about to begin.
Kim Woo-jin was aware of the behaviour of the players.
They were never the kind of people who could be convinced or persuaded with only a couple of words.
Even if they nod their heads at you when you talk, seemingly convinced, the players were cunning, determined and persistent enough to aim for a gap if they were to see one.
In particular, the players who had come to retrieve items that the preceding players had brought were even worse.
There was only one way to persuade these kinds of people.
By showing off overwhelming power!
“Ten Orcs ahead.”
It was for this reason, that Kim Woo-jin led his skeletons from the front as they massacred the oncoming monsters at an alarming rate.
“The battle commences.”
The pace with which Kim Woo-jin slaughtered the monsters was truly beyond description.
“I’m going, I’m going.”
The moment the monsters were discovered, Lee Jin-ah threw his huge body toward it, Kim Woo-jin and 10 Skeleton Soldiers advancing swiftly behind him.
They were like a tidal wave.
Like a tidal wave, the Orcs were submerged before they could even react.
What was more surprising was that, like a tsunami, was gradually growing larger.
[You have summoned a Skeleton.]
[The effect of Ruler of the Battlefield has been stacked.]
As the battle continued, the number of skeletons grew and the effect of Ruler of the Battlefield continued to be enhanced.
This scene, which seemed to grow even stronger as the battle progressed, was horrifying enough to make one’s hair stand on end.
‘No, does this bastard get stronger the more he fights?’
In the repeated battles, Kim Woo-jin’s skills seemed to gradually rise continuously.
Of course, Kim Woo-jin’s skills didn’t actually improve.
It was simply that while he had been following the Frontier Guild, his skills had been suppressed while he was only playing and eating, yet they continued to rise.
So this battle was really a sort of rehabilitation.
This spurned Kim Woo-jin on even more.
“Lee Jin-ah, how many days do you think it will take to clear the first floor?”
“Uh…well it’s 6,666 and there are 80 players here, so if we kill 1,000 a day, wouldn’t it take about a week, including rest days?”
“Let’s end it in three days.”
“For three days, put your body up to 120%.”
Before heading to the second floor, he was already intended to warm himself up so he wouldn’t need to do it then.
Lee Jin-ah was shocked by his statement.
To his surprise, Kim Woo-jin responded to him.
And on the third day, since they entered the Dungeon, the result came out.
(TL: So as I was reading/translating this and I saw the [Ruler of the Battlefield] skill again, I realized that I didn’t actually know what the skill did and only had my own inference. So I decided to go find it and since I won’t be selfish, I’ll put it here for you guys too. If we come across any skill that appeared before I took over and that wasn’t shown then I will do the same…granted that they aren’t obvious *cough* [Blood Poison] *cough*. Well enough dilly-dallying, here it is
[Ruler of the Battlefield]
-Conditions: Emissary of the Underworld
-Required Level: Level 15 or higher
-Effect: All summons become as strong as the number of enemies the summons kill.
Hope that clears up any confusion (^_~) )
