Kill The Hero – Chapter 112 – Frozen Forest of Violence (3)
Dungeons were very similar to videogames.
After a dungeon was attacked, the number of monsters in the dungeon would return to the original amount.
However, the monsters that had survived would still remain.
Of course, it was extremely rare for ordinary monsters to survive till the end.
After a dungeon was attacked 10 times, it would be extremely difficult to find a monster that had spawned during the first attack.
The only exception was boss monsters.
‘He is a monster that survived 23 attacks.’
So gathering information was important.
‘It’s almost impossible to compare him to a regular Ogre.’
The experiences of the monster, the types of wounds that the preceding players had left on it, how it dealt with those wounds and how its personality shifted over time.
‘He has already become a hunter.’
And how his personality changed his fighting style.
This was the information that Kim Woo-jin wanted to get from the bodies.
Thanks to that, Kim Woo-jin knew it well.
‘He’s a clever hunter.’
The Ogre was clearly targeting the smaller group instead of a large group.
In particular when it found a players body, it knew that the new players would be interested in that body and so it would have a chance to ambush them.
It also knew that after such a hunt, it had to take a break to quench its thirst.
‘But its IQ isn’t high.”
Based on the information he’d gotten, Kim Woo-jin looked for a weak point.
Gulp! Gulp! Gulp!
As the Ogre lifted the body of a player it had just killed and drank the hot blood that was squeezed out of the body as if it was drinking a canned beverage, Kim Woo-jin controlled the Goblin skeleton to move.
The Goblin Skeleton Soldier, which was wearing armor specially designed to remove the sounds it made, stealthily approached the Ogre.
It wasn’t that close.
It was about 10 meters away, but if it drew closer, the Ogre would notice.
When it reached this distance, Kim Woo-jin gave an order to the skeleton using the Grim Reaper’s Mask.
Immediately, the skeleton threw a fist sized water balloon that it had been holding in its hand.
The water balloon flew toward the Ogre’s face silently and quickly.
Then it burst.
The attack was so ridiculous that the Ogre began rubbing its face which had already been smeared with blood, while making a sound of surprise instead of anger.
It was at that moment.
[The Ogre has been afflicted by Black Blood.]
[It has been blinded.]
The notification that Kim Woo-jin had been waiting for sounded in his ear.
Then he heard the Ogre finally understand what was happening and let out a loud roar filled with anger.
“Eraa, I didn’t realise.”
That was the signal.
Lee Jin-ah rushed towards the Ogre with the skeletal wolf.
The battle had begun
The leader of the Sawtooth Wolves, a skeleton wolf which had been summoned through the additional effect to summon giant monsters, sprinted through the frozen forest and narrowed its distance to the Ogre.
There was no hesitation in its movements.
[An Unknown Fear has overwhelmed you.]
It was as if an invisible wall appeared before them as they ran wildly.
It was this wall that had left countless players in despair.
Even those who had hardened themselves in the face of fear had died without being able to truly prove themselves.
However Lee Jin-ah was smiling as hard as he could even in the face of such fear.
[Lancelot’s Ring negates Fear.]
It was because he had Lancelot’s Ring which negated all negative status conditions.
The skeleton wolf was also unaffected by the effect of Fear.
Fear only affected living creatures and had absolutely no effect on those that had already died.
The two of them quickly broke through the wall.
And they came face to face with a wall that was much worse.
Up close, the gigantic beast was even more horrifying.
It had a height of 4.6 meters, an overwhelming physique that made anyone feel incredibly small and rough, thick skin which gave one the impression that it was as effective as the best leather armor.
The most overwhelming thing was its injuries.
The wounds that it had gotten over the course of 23 dungeon attacks were virtually battle scars that criss crossed over its body.
Even those who had mental protection abilities would feel frightened just by looking at it.
But of course Lee Jin-ah was different.
He stabbed the Ogre’s thigh with the spear in his hand without even a second of hesitation.
Such a spear stab immediately left a deep wound on the Ogre’s body.
The Ogre was surprised by it and immediately swung the wooden club in its hand.
Lee Jin-ah avoided the attack by laying flat on the body of the skeleton wolf while the wolf immediately made distance from the Ogre.
During the slight pause in the battle, a surprised cry escaped from Lee Jin-ah’s mouth.
‘Isn’t it like piercing pudding?’
It was in admiration for the amazing penetration power of Percival’s Spear.
[The Ogre’s recovery ability has been greatly reduced.]
In addition, the wounds caused by Percival’s Spear could not be easily healed by the Ogre’s remarkable resilience.
Thanks to that, blood began pouring from the wound.
“Go right away.”
Then the skeleton wolf spoke.
This caused Lee Jin-ah to stop admiring the spear and instead begin preparing for the next attack.
Once again, the Sawtooth Wolf Skeleton Soldier began running towards the Ogre in the distance.
But this time it wasn’t as easy to hit the Ogre. Unlike the players, the Ogres weren’t known to have a sharp drop in combat ability simply because they lost the ability to see.
Instead, it accurately grasped the location of Lee Jin-ah and the skeleton wolf using sound and smell, and swung its club like a bolt of lightning.
The skeleton soldier jumped sideways to avoid it.
The wooden club smashed against the ground.
Meanwhile Lee Jin-ah used the spear to leave another wound on the Ogre’s thigh.
However this wound was not very deep.
Although the entire blade of the spear entered, if you considered the enormous size of the Ogre, it became only a scratch.
There wasn’t the destructive power that one would imagine from a cavalry attack.
However Lee Jin-ah and Kim Woo-jin weren’t dissatisfied by this.
“Next time I’ll sidestep twice.”
Rather Kim Woo-jin used the skeleton’s mouth to explain a new tactic.
From the start the purpose of this combination wasn’t in the creation of a strong destructive power.
The purpose was to divide the roles.
Kim Woo-jin became the bridge and all Lee Jin-ah needed to focus on was the attack.
The power of such tactics was actually considerable.
Firstly, Kim Woo-jin was probably better at overlooking a battle and supporting from the back than any other player in the world.
As long as he was holding the steering wheel, then there would be absolutely no accidents unless it was coincidental.
And it didn’t matter if there were accidents.
“Woo, I almost kicked the fucking bucket. Wasn’t that too close?”
“I’ll show you what the word close really means.”
Lee Jin-ah, who had the Blessing of the River Styx would be able to survive even if his limbs were ripped off, his ribcage crushed and his head chopped off.
There was nothing better in the world than a pilot who cannot die or a race driver who wouldn’t die in an accident during a race.
Lee Jin-ah and Kim Woo-jin proved this to the Ogre.
Of course, they didn’t forget.
“When are the skeletons going to come out?”
“After you make ten cuts.”
As should be expected, such a large stage needed an audience.
The Skeleton Soldiers were prepared and waiting for their master’s orders.
“After that we’ll just have to put these in the wounds.”
With weapons made using Kim Woo-jin’s Blood Poison in their hands.
