Kill The Hero – Chapter 119 – Graduating from 2 Floors (5)
‘He is quite good at spreading information.’
While looking at the article on Isaac Ivanov, Kim Woo-jin smiled slightly.
‘The moment the information spread about Park Yong-wan contacting Isaac Ivanov, the Messiah Guild moved immediately.’
He recalled the conversation with Oh Se-chan in his mind.
At that time Oh Se-chan had told Kim Woo-jin that he would leak the fact that Park Yong-wan was contacting Isaac Ivanov to the Messiah Guild.
‘The price for ransom always increases when there’s a competitor.’
The reason of course, was to raise Isaac Ivanov’s value.
And as a result of that, the Skeleton Knight skill and an entry to the new Golden Lion Dungeon had been obtained easily.
‘Everything is perfect so far.’
Kim Woo-jin didn’t think that the situation could get any better than it currently was.
And now there was only one other task that he had to do.
‘All that matters now is whether I can clear it or not.’
Would Kim Woo-jin be able to grab hold of the golden opportunity that had been placed right in front of him?
In the face of that question, Kim Woo-jin looked at the skill window in front of his eyes.
-Effect: Transform a summoned undead monster into a Berserker.
When he saw it, Kim Woo-jin closed his eyes and began to think deeply.
It wouldn’t be easy to clear the dungeon.
‘It won’t be easy to stop myself from standing out too much.’
Players were often referred to as the chosen ones.
In a way, this statement wasn’t wrong.
The fact that they had become a player was in itself the greatest benefit that a player could ever hope for.
It was similar to winning the lottery.
In the world, having a large sum of money wasn’t extremely rare, but that didn’t mean that just because you had a fortune you could have a large impact.
It was the same for the players.
Players who stayed in 1 Floor dungeons could be considered to have been lucky enough to win the lottery.
In other words, their impact on the world was practically nonexistent.
However, from the moment they reached level 100, the status of the player would rise to an entirely new level.
It was entirely possible to change the political map in a country depending on their will and capabilities.
Players who challenged 3 Floor dungeons were those who were nearing that level of power and influence.
“Every one of them is so amazing. There’s the Crazy Dog Chun Dao-ming who has had 5 dungeon clears by himself, the Golden Eagles who are the next gen ace party of the Great One Guild, and even the black members of the Amazon Guild.”
There were those with various names and nicknames, and those with reputations similar to famous celebrities.
Of course, since it was an A+ rank 3 Floor Dungeon and not a regular 3 Floor dungeon, it was natural for the participants to be famous players.
“But this is a bit bad. The best players here are only level 70 aren’t they?”
However, even when considering that, the faces of those who were gathering to participate in the Golden Lion Dungeon were quite diverse.
“And it’s a Korean Dungeon. Why are there so many foreigners?”
Moreover, there were many who had a hard time understanding why there was such a large proportion of foreigners.
In this era where every A+ dungeon was seen as a major national asset, most countries would try to fill and clear A+ rank Dungeons with members of their own nationality as much as possible.
However, for this Golden Lion Dungeon, 130 of the participants were foreigners.
“What’s the Messiah Guild thinking?”
This was because the Messiah Guild who held virtually all the rights to the Golden Lion Dungeon, had opened up the doors for this dungeon.
When they opened the doors, it was natural for the talented guilds to stick together.
“Well, this would definitely increase our chances of clearing it…”
Of course, this was the best way to increase the success rate of the dungeon attack.
Wasn’t it more helpful and in the advantage of the national interest to challenge the dungeon with players who were skilled rather than simply deciding to use players from the same nationality?
The public opinion was also very good.
The main consensus was that the Messiah Guild had made a wise choice when looking at the situation from the grand scale.
“This isn’t like those guys.”
However, Lee Jin-ah’s thoughts were different.
“Hey, what do you think?”
“They must be up to something.”
And it was the same for Kim Woo-jin.
‘They are completely different members from my memory.’
The players who were participating in the Golden Lion Dungeon this time were completely different from Kim Woo-jin’s memory.
‘The top 5 guilds participated, but not to this extent.’
Compared to how many there were this time, the number from that time appeared quite pitiful.
It was not an exaggeration.
Even if they didn’t belong to the top 5 guilds, most of the foreign members taking part in the dungeon were ones who had received the support of the government.
Even if these people had murdered people, the government had stepped in to make it possible for them to enter.
‘It’s obviously because of me.’
There was no reason for him to look around for the reason it was clearly his presence that had completely changed the history that he remembered.
‘Which means they definitely have something planned for me…’
There was a reason for everything, and the reason for this change was likely to be Isaac Ivanov.
Therefore, Kim Woo-jin heightened his focus to the peak.
“Are they trying to kill us? Huh? They have the mind to remove the growing buds before they bloom?”
Lee Jin-ah posed a few questions to him.
“Something like that.”
Kim Woo-jin’s answer brought another few questions to Lee Jin-ah’s mind.
What if they really want to kill them?
If so, can Kim Woo-jin really survive against them?
It was an important concern.
If Kim Woo-jin didn’t think he could do it, he probably would have avoided the dungeon at all costs.
Soon after, a thought came to Kim Woo-jin’s mind.
‘If they intend to kill me, I hope they bring a good item. Chances like this don’t come to players easily.’
It was then.
The vehicle had arrived at their destination.
“There’s an hour until it’s time to start the attack.”
Lee Jin-ah and Kim Woo-jin both responded after that.
“(До свидания-Da svidaniya) Good bye.”
With those two words, they opened the car door and walked out.
“It’s Isaac Ivanov!”
At that moment cheers began erupting around Yeouido Park.
It was a sign that the dungeon attack was just around the corner.
Even though it was October, Yeouido Park was filled with people as though it was the time when the cherry blossom trees were in full bloom.
“Wow! It’s filled with famous players that I’ve only seen on my smartphone!”
“Look over there! The cars the players have in the parking lot are no joke!”
“That time in Busan can’t compare to this. Those aren’t mass produced cars, they were specially made by the car manufacturers!”
“Now that I think about it, wasn’t there a story that there was even a light car in the player parking lot when they attacked the A+ dungeon in Busan?”
“Hey, that’s ridiculous. Which player who could attack an A+ rank Dungeon would drive a light car? That’s probably just a rumor.”
“No, I’m sure there was a post on the internet showing it parked among all the other expensive cars.”
“It must be fake. Even if you didn’t have a choice, no one would make a fool of themselves like that.”
It wasn’t just a few people, there was a larger crowd who were there to catch a glimpse of the famous players.
Of course, there was a player that they anticipated more than the others.
“Hey, isn’t that the Russian Embassy’s car over there?”
“It’s Isaac Ivanov!”
Yeouido Park which was filled with people began cheering the same way they cheered for the recognized heroes and players of the Messiah Guild.
The cheering was intense.
“Isaac Ivanov! I sent you Choco Pies!”
“I sent too!”
There were many different cheers that sounded loudly in Yeouido Park, they even managed to pierce through the tent near the dungeon gate that had been built for the players.
“I think Isaac arrived.”
Thanks to that three players, two men and a woman, who were facing another man, learned of his arrival.
“Then let’s wrap up this discussion. It would be troublesome if it was heard by someone else. So Isaac Ivanov has the item called Van Gogh’s bracelet, right?”
“So you suddenly came to us before the dungeon attack starts and told us information that has not even been released to the public to get us to kill him and take the bracelet?”
The Asian man who asked this question revealed creepy fangs in his mouth.
“I just gave you some information that might be helpful.”
The gentle looking man in front of them just gave a smile before he continued speaking.
“But it’s not rare for a rookie player entering a 3 Floor Dungeon for the first time to not be able to handle it.”
The man got up from his seat, finishing his remark.
“Well then I wish you success in clearing the dungeon.”
After he left, the other three players also got up from their seats and headed in different directions.
But the eyes of the three were the same.
‘I can at least get a legendary item.’
They were the eyes of a treasure hunter who had just received a treasure map.
