Kill The Hero – Chapter 164 – Revenge (2)
As he heard that question, a man with a rat-like expression nodded his head and quietly spoke to Kim Woo-jin who was putting a piece of tuna sushi into his mouth.
“Yes, there’s a dungeon you have to attack. It’s B+ rank 3 Floor dungeon with 120 maximum entries.”
Instead of responding, Kim Woo-jin simply chewed on his sushi.
Meanwhile, the man continued to speak.
“The reason for the attack is an item that needs to be recovered from the dungeon.”
At those words, Kim Woo-jin closely looked at Maruyama, the man in front of him.
‘It’s obviously a trap.’
Unsurprisingly, Kim Woo-jin knew that Maruyama was doing his best to have Kim Woo-jin take the bait.
However, Kim Woo-jin just continued eating his sushi instead of responding.
When he saw that, Maruyama paused for a moment before he continued talking.
“I know the offer is very sudden. But Mr. Kim Woo-jin was the only one I could ask for this favor.”
This time, Kim Woo-jin, who had been calmly eating his sushi, finally responded.
“How much do you know about me?”
“As I said before, I don’t know Mr. Kim Woo-jin very well.”
At that moment, Maruyama stepped closer to Kim Woo-jin and spoke in a small voice.
“But I know that Mr. Kim Woo-jin is the great hero’s teammate. There’s nothing more reliable than that.”
At his words, Kim Woo-jin mocked him internally.
‘They worked hard to think of a good enough scenario.’
He was mocking the amount of effort Maruyama and the Bow God behind him had to put in to come up with a good enough bait.
Of course, he didn’t show any of that.
Instead, Kim Woo-jin’s expression became firm.
“Then you should know that I can’t just move when I feel like it. Would you behave as you please while your boss is unconscious?”
It was a reasonable question.
And it was something that the Bow God would’ve expected.
That’s why Maruyama acted like he had prepared for such a response.
“That’s why I came up with this proposal.”
With those words, Maruyama looked around carefully before he picked up the briefcase that he’d brought with him.
Then he pulled an envelope out of it.
“If you accept our offer, we will give you this skill page. This is an advance. After you’ve completed the task, you will receive additional rewards.”
As he said this, Maruyama handed the envelope to Kim Woo-jin.
However, Kim Woo-jin did not take the envelope.
Instead, he spoke with a displeased expression.
“So what happened was because of my incompetence and with this offer I’ll become stronger, is that it?”
He was bound to be displeased.
Were they saying that the reason Isaac Ivanov was so heavily injured during the fight with the Hatchling was because Kim Woo-jin was incompetent?
Maruyama’s words were lacking just enough for Kim Woo-jin to assume that that was what he meant.
Of course, Maruyama was also aware that his words could be interpreted in such a way.
Therefore, Maruyama continued acting in confidence while believing that everything was going as planned.
“Isn’t it clear that if Mr. Kim Woo-jin was stronger than you are now, the results would’ve been different?”
Kim Woo-jin got up from his seat as if he could no longer tolerate the insults.
“Mr. Kim Woo-jin!”
At the same time, Maruyama got up and blocked Kim Woo-jin from leaving.
Kim Woo-jin stared at Maruyama with his displeased expression.
When he saw this, Maruyama spoke with a tense voice.
“I’m not trying to make fun of you, Mr. Kim Woo-jin. I never had that intention sir. In fact, I made this proposal simply because I felt that it would be incredibly helpful to you.”
With those words, Maruyama passed the envelope to Kim Woo-jin once again.
At least check what is inside before you make a decision.
Kim Woo-jin frowned harder before finally taking the envelope from Maruyama.
As he did this, a thought went through his head.
‘It seems that they prepared something more valuable than I expected.”
It seemed the Bow God had spent a lot of money to get rid of Kim Woo-jin this time.
‘But that doesn’t mean it would be a legendary skill.’
With that thought, Kim Woo-jin confirmed what was in the envelope.
Inside the envelope was not a legendary or even a unique skill, just as Kim Woo-jin had expected.
As he saw the contents, Kim Woo-jin laughed lightly in his head.
After he saw what the skill page was, Kim Woo-jin spoke with a firm tone.
“How did you get this?”
He wasn’t acting.
This was the first time that Kim Woo-jin had shown a sincere expression since meeting Maruyama today.
It was that surprising.
“It seems like my judgement that this Blood Golem skill would greatly enhance Mr. Kim Woo-jin’s power.”
The bait that the Bow God had prepared to draw in Kim Woo-jin had worked.
The Blood Golem skill could be used as a medium to hold the Blood Poison.
Even if you had little knowledge about skills in the game-like world, you would be able to understand the synergy between these two skills.
-They really gave you the Blood Golem skill as an advance?
That’s why Oh Se-chan was so surprised.
-Where did they get it? I’ve kept an eye out for it but it hasn’t even been on sale!
Oh Se-chan had also believed that there was no better skill for Kim Woo-jin’s Blood Poison ability, so he earnestly searched for the Blood Golem skill.
-I’ll have to raise my evaluation of the Yamato Federation. I knew they weren’t ordinary, but I didn’t expect it would be this much…
That was why he was surprised when Kim Woo-jin so easily obtained something that even he had been unable to find.
– Condition: Emissary of the Underworld
– Required Level: Level 100 or higher
– Effect: Summon a Golem using the summoner’s blood as a medium. The shape of the Golem will follow that of the summoner, and the more blood it absorbs from prey, the larger it gets.
Of course, his surprise could not surpass Kim Woo-jin’s when he saw the skill page.
This was because he had already experienced just how horrific those two skills could be when combined.
‘The secret trump card of the Poison King.’
The Poison King.
Through him, Kim Woo-jin had experienced firsthand how the combination of these two skills could produce terrifying results.
‘The Blood Golem itself is a monster.’
Firstly, the Blood Golem was a monster all on its own.
It was incredibly hard to deal with because it was highly resistant to physical attacks due to its liquid body, combined with a considerable resistance to magic.
At the same time, the Blood Golem could freely control all parts of its body.
This meant that it could sharpen any part of its body at any time.
It was a liquid killing machine like the T-1000 that appeared as the antagonist in the movie Terminator 2.
And when the blood that was used to create this horrific monster was extremely poisonous, the killing ability it demonstrated became overwhelming.
‘Players who were able to hunt Dragons in 5 Floor dungeons were completely annihilated by a Blood Golem.’
Even Dragon Slayers could not avoid death when faced with a Blood Golem.
And such a thing had now been given to Kim Woo-jin.
Of course, there was no way that Kim Woo-jin would be overwhelmed by that fact.
“The Bow God has prepared the best bait to lure me into the dungeon to kill.”
Rather, he realised that with this skill, the Bow God had prepared the greatest stage on which to kill him.
-It’s definitely the best bait to catch you.
In fact, the Blood Golem skill was the best bait.
-You can’t refuse it and you can’t use it.
From the perspective of Kim Woo-jin, who was known for using blood poison, this was a skill that he could not pass up, but because the required level was 100, it was a skill that he was unable to use.
This meant that the prey would not become stronger because of their bait.
-So what will you do?
“If they’re willing to do this much, then I have to give the Bow God a chance.”
Of course, Kim Woo-jin had to take this bait.
“Tell Lee Jin-ah to get ready.”
