Kill The Hero – Chapter 126 – Golden Lion (3)
The players gathered behind one of the larger boulders on the boulder filled mountain. The number of players there was 141.
But none of them made a sound.
The sound of the lion snoring from a distance was so loud that they suffocated.
Most of the players were standing there in a daze.
‘I didn’t think the Golden Lion would be such a monster.’
The merciless violence that was showcased by the lion had left such an impression on them.
He had completely crushed the will of even the players than had come prepared to die.
‘It’s impossible to kill him.’
Most of them gathered there were already convinced that it was impossible for them to hunt the Golden Lion.
Then someone opened their mouth.
The name of the speaker was Kim Ha-yeon, leader of the players that the Messiah Guild had sent into the dungeon.
“No one is against the fact that everyone has to work together right?”
She addressed the crowd.
Everyone had to work together. This was something that was actually difficult to hear.
The Messiah Guild was such a closed group that they basically considered anyone outside of their guild as an enemy.
However now they were the ones who suggested that everyone work together as a group.
The violence shown by the Golden Lion had completely destroyed their closed mentality.
Of course, no one voiced any opposition to the Messiah Guild’s suggestion.
“We have to work together.”
“It’s crazy to split up and take turns against a monster like that.”
Only one man among the group disagreed.
Isaac Ivanov expressed his rejection of the Messiah Guild’s suggestion in english.
His words once again caused silence to fall over the group.
The sound of the lion snoring could be heard once again.
The silence lasted a long time. This was because no one could truly understand the situation.
Against it was Kim Ha-yeon’s job to break the silence.
“For what reason?”
Isaac Ivanov responded to her question quite calmly.
“Chun Dao-ming attacked me for the items in my possession.”
Isaac Ivanov, who was speaking, began looking around.
“And there are two more groups with the same intentions as Chun Dao-ming.”
The eyes of the group also followed the direction that Isaac Ivanov was looking.
So everyone’s eyes turned to look at the groups from the Great One Guild and the Amazon Guild. (TL: how convenient that they were together)
The two groups stiffened because of the gazes.
“H-, how did you kn-, know?”
One of the group unwittingly exposed them.
It was a mistake.
Usually, mistakes like this could never occur, but because of the overwhelming fear and pressure that was placed upon them by the Golden Lion such a mistake had appeared at an unfortunate time.
Of course, it was not a mistake that could be tolerated.
“Ah! W-, wait!”
It was already too late for him to make any excuses for his slip up.
The gaze of those looking at them had already cooled down.
Among them, Kim Ha-yeon’s gaze was beyond cold.
Kim Ha-yeon silenced the one who was trying to make excuses with a fierce gaze before looking back toward Isaac Ivanov.
She gestured for him to say what else he wanted to say.
Isaac calmly replied to the gesture.
“I have no intentions of being on a team with a group who are targeting me.”
It was a valid statement and everyone nodded.
It was relatively common for players to target others for their items, everyone knew that.
More than a few of those who were nodding now would have done the same thing, given the chance.
But there wasn’t a single person who thought it was a good thing to do.
So of course if such an intention was revealed, there would be consequences.
That’s why everyone agreed with Isaac Ivanov’s opinion.
“That’s why I don’t have any intention to save their lives.”
But as Isaac Ivanov said those words, there was no one who dared to nod.
“W-, wait! So Isaac, you have a way to hunt that monster?”
Kim Ha-yeon once again moved to silence the group, this time because of the noise that they were making.
“Please be quiet.”
She pointed to the Golden Lion sleeping in the distance with one hand and put the index finger of her other hand to her lips.
Everyone shut up.
In the silence, Kim Ha-yeon spoke again.
“Are you sure that you can hunt it?”
Isaac didn’t answer her.
“There are two option. Firstly you hunt the Golden Lion without me.”
Instead he gave his conditions.
“The other is that I hunt the Golden Lion first. In that case, those two groups will have to pay for their lives.”
At the proposal, Kim Ha-yeon turned her head to look at the members of the Great One Guild and the Amazon Guild.
Surprisingly, none of the two groups showed any expressions of worry or anger.
There was actually no reason for them to be upset.
‘If we can avoid facing a monster like that then we’d how much ever our lives cost.’
It was not too late to worry about him after they had survived this place.
Rather, at that moment, in the eyes of the two groups, Isaac Ivanov was like a savior descended from heaven.
Kim Ha-yeon, who noticed their expressions, pondered the situation.
“I have no choice but to choose the second option. Does anyone have any other opinions?”
Of course there would not be any objections, so she continued immediately.
“So when are you going to fight it?”
Isaac Ivanov responded to her words in a calm voice.
With those words, Isaac Ivanov turned and began walking toward the Golden Lion in the distance.
As soon as Kim Woo-jin began to advance, the other players retreated.
Now that they were alone, Lee Jin-ah approached Kim Woo-jin and asked.
“Are you sure it doesn’t have any weaknesses?”
The question reminded Kim Woo-jin of the survivor of the dungeon in his past life, Jung Ji-hoon’s story.
As if they were wet clothes, the players had stuck to the Golden Lion while attacking in every way they could and after a fierce and vicious battle in which they did not have any regard for their lives, they won.
There were no fatal weaknesses that they could use to overturn the situation.
“At least as far as I can tell, it has no weaknesses. The only way to kill him is to make him bleed.”
This was why Kim Woo-jin entered this dungeon without hesitation.
“It’s not too difficult.”
When Kim Woo-jin turned his head after saying those words he saw a Skeleton Knight riding a skeleton wolf.
Then he looked at Percival’s Spear that was held in the knight’s hand.
‘If it’s Percival’s Spear then it shouldn’t be hard to pierce its skin.’
In front of Percival’s Spear, even the Golden Lion which had high defense would be forced to bleed.
“We just need to set the stage for the Skeleton Knight to attack as many times as possible.”
In other words, what they needed to hunt the lion was to constantly draw it’s aggro so that the Skeleton Knight could concentrate on dealing damage.
Lee Jin-ah let out a loud sigh at those words.
“In the end, you’re telling me to go through a lot of trouble. Alright, fine. I’ll play with it. Should I take off my clothes and dance in front of the Golden Lion? While singing the Lion King theme song?”
It was a sigh lamenting the fact that he had to play a bad role again.
Kim Woo-jin gave him an answer he wasn’t expecting.
“You have a different role this time.”
Instead of answering the surprised Lee Jin-ah, Kim Woo-jin summoned the Book of the Dead, took out one of the slab like pages and summoned the sealed skeleton.
[The seal has been released.]
And the skeleton that appeared this time was the skeleton of an Ogre.
Kim Woo-jin had created a skeleton from the Ogre that he had hunted in the dungeon in Taiwan.
In addition, the aura of the fully armored Ogre skeleton was not less than that of the Golden Lion.
Lee Jin-ah also voiced his admiration.
Of course, Kim Woo-jin and Lee Jin-ah knew.
“How long do you think this guy would last?”
The Ogre Skeleton would only be able to distract the lion for a certain amount of time.
But even that was an amazing feat.
The players who had faced the Golden LIon before had even been able to tie him down for a long time before they were all annihilated.
So Kim Woo-jin summoned one more thing.
He summoned another sandbag that would be able to help them buy some more time against the Golden Lion.
Lee Jin-ah grinned when the two giants appeared.
“It’s worth a try.”
Along with those words, Lee Jin-ah patted the leg of the Golem that had just been summoned.
“Lemy, Skely, please take good care of me.” (TL: Like the greeting you give to your coworkers on your first day of work)
“So what’s my role? Am I supposed to make it bleed with the Skeleton Knight?”
Kim Woo-jin’s eyes turned to look at the Heavenly Dragon Sword that was hanging at Lee Jin-ah’s waist.
In fact getting the sword here was completely unexpected, but that didn’t mean that he would exclude it from his plans.
There was no reason for him to exclude a powerful that could harm the Golden Lion together with Percival’s spear.
Therefore he was willing to actively use the Heavenly Dragon Sword.
“When I give the signal, use the Heavenly Dragon’s Will skill.”
“Okay, and then?”
“Then, I’ll give you another signal.”
“Right, then I can stab it?”
“No, you don’t have to.”
“When I give the signal, pass the Heavenly Dragon Sword to me.”
Kim Woo-jin seriously spoke to Lee Jin-ah, who still had a blank look on his face.
“I’m better at handling the sword.”
Only then did Lee Jin-ah realise.
The reason why Kim Woo-jin gave him the Heavenly Dragon Sword.
Leaving him behind, Kim Woo-jin put on the Grim Reaper’s Mask.
“The battle will be over in 10 minutes.”
And so the battle began.
