Kill The Hero – Chapter 199 – Payback (3)
[The Twin Headed Cyclops has been slain.]
[Earned the Achievement ‘First Twin Headed Cyclops Hunter’.]
[Earned the Achievement ‘Twin Headed Cyclops Hunter’.]
[Earned the Achievement ‘Outstanding’.]
Even with the death of the Twin Headed Cyclops, the dungeon wasn’t cleared.
This was because the clear conditions were not to hunt the Twin Headed Cyclops, but to survive for 5 days.
From Kim Woo-jin’s perspective, it was a good thing as he wouldn’t have to rush to deal with the Twin Headed Cyclops’ body.
Even Kim Woo-jin wouldn’t have been able to properly butcher it in time.
“I’ll handle it until I disappear.”
The alter ego was willing to butcher the body on behalf of the main body.
Kim Woo-jin smiled at that.
Lee Jin-ah who was nearby couldn’t help but shudder.
‘I can’t believe there are actually two of this evil guy…’
As he looked at Lee Jin-ah’s shivering figure, one thought remained in Kim Woo-jin’s head.
‘Come to think of it, whenever I clone myself, the stats the clone gets are completely random…so it would be even better for training.’
A way to efficiently make use of the clone popped into his head.
But it didn’t stay there for long.
[The Emissary of the Underworld praises your achievement.]
[The Emissary of the Underworld has sent you a special gift while looking forward to your actions in the future.]
‘Looking forward to the future?’
Kim Woo-jin immediately confirmed the gift he got from his halo as he thought about the notification he had never heard before.
When he looked at what he got, he couldn’t help but smile.
– Condition: Emissary of the Underworld
– Required Level: Level 150 or Higher
– Effect: Summon a Dullahan by using a Knight-type monster as a sacrifice.
‘I never thought I could receive higher leveled skill pages from a gift.’
It was the moment when he’d learned a new setting in the world.
One of the most important abilities of a hunter was to analyze their prey simply from the tracks they left.
And at the top level, the hunter would be able to reliably gauge their prey’s capabilities just from looking at their tracks.
“It’s an absolute monster.”
That was why the players were shocked when they found the traces on the fourth floor of the dungeon where the players of the Kunlun Guild encountered the Twin Headed Cyclops.
‘Only 3 out of 31 managed to get away, the rest couldn’t even make it one hundred meters.’
‘One set attacked each other, while the others could do nothing to defend themselves from the Cyclops’ attacks.’
‘It’s a monster that’s impossible to escape from if you don’t run away immediately.’
The broken bodies scattered around told the players that the Twin Headed Cyclops was much stronger than they anticipated.
‘If we encountered that beast…’
‘At most, one or two people would survive.’
Of course, they understood.
‘This monster is the reason surviving is enough to clear this A+ rank.’
Just why this A+ rank dungeon had a survival quest.
‘This is definitely not a monster that players in 4 Floor dungeons can hunt.’
They determined that players active in 4 Floor dungeons or players below level 140 were unable to hunt this monster.
This caused them to feel more afraid.
But it wasn’t fear for the Twin Headed Cyclops.
‘Isaac Ivanov still managed to hunt this monster.’
Instead, it was fear toward Isaac Ivanov, who had hunted such a monster.
Their fear was understandable.
As had been pointed out earlier, the Twin Headed Cyclops was designed to be something they were unable to beat.
But Isaac Ivanov had defeated it.
‘And he only took less than 30 minutes.’
What’s more, he had done it in an extremely short time.
‘Without the help of the Phoenix Guild.’
Without the help of anyone but his teammate.
If you knew Isaac Ivanov’s capabilities, it wasn’t a big deal, it just meant that you were too weak to understand.
In addition, this fear was the reason no one approached Isaac Ivanov even after he killed the Twin Headed Cyclops.
‘Never offend him.’
After all, this was a dungeon.
And the outside world wouldn’t know what happened in this place.
Offending Isaac Ivanov in a dungeon was like going into a lion’s cage while no one was around and pulling its mane.
That’s why the players only swallowed their saliva while watching Isaac Ivanov from a distance.
Thanks to this, Kim Woo-jin was able to dismantle the Cyclops’ body in a very relaxed manner.
It was quite fun.
‘I gained a lot.’
Moreover, his gains were much higher than he’d expected.
First, he got the Cyclops’ skeleton.
‘If I make it into a Skeleton Soldier and seal it in the Book of the Dead, then I could Resurrection at any time.’
Skeleton Soldier, Book of the Dead, Resurrection.
Through this combination of skills, Kim Woo-jin would be able to summon the Twin Headed Ogre whenever he wanted.
‘It’s leather is incredibly tough.’
The Twin Headed Cyclops’ skin was also a pretty big gain.
The skin of the Twin Headed Cyclops, which was a monster that couldn’t be hunted by players in a 4 Floor dungeon, was comparable to the Hatchling’s skin in terms of toughness.
It was also incredibly large, so the quantity was more than sufficient.
‘I can make another powerful unit like the Hatchling unit.’
This meant that he could strengthen his skeleton army once more.
However, his biggest gains were something else.
‘More importantly, the tails of the Nine Tailed Fox.’
The Twin Headed Cyclops had tails of the Nine Tailed Fox in its body.
And it wasn’t just one.
[Fifth Tail of the Nine Tailed Fox]
– Rating: Legendary
– Required Level: Level 1 or higher
– Description: The fifth tail of the Nine Tailed Fox. It contains mysterious power. If all nine tails are collected then the user will be able to unleash the power of the Nine Tailed Fox.
– All stats +10%
– All defense +10%
– When equipped can inflict enemies with ‘Confusion’
[Sixth Tail of the Nine Tailed Fox]
– Rating: Legendary
– Required Level: Level 1 or higher
– Description: The sixth tail of the Nine Tailed Fox. It contains mysterious power. If all nine tails are collected then the user will be able to unleash the power of the Nine Tailed Fox.
– All stats +50
– All resistance +10%
– When equipped, slow down enemy movement speed
There were two tails of the Nine Tailed Fox, one for each head.
It was truly an amazing gain.
‘Now, all that’s left are the first, fourth and eight.’
The most surprising thing was that Kim Woo-jin already knew where to find the remaining three, who had them or where he could get them.
That was to say, the opportunity had come.
‘I’ll be able to get all the tails of the Nine Tailed Fox.’
It was an opportunity for him to gain tremendous power.
Of course, this only meant that he had the opportunity.
Actually acquiring all of them was still no easy task.
After all, weren’t opportunities things that were often missed?
Therefore, Kim Woo-jin wasn’t excited by the fact that the opportunity had come.
Instead, he began preparing so he wouldn’t miss the opportunity.
[A Skeleton has been summoned.]
After he finished skinning it, Kim Woo-jin created a Skeleton Soldier with the Twin Headed Cyclops.
[The Resurrection skill has been used.]
And using Osiris’ Ring, he once again summoned the Twin headed Cyclops.
‘It’s the fear that comes in the moment when you think it’s all over and relax your guard that truly remains in your mind.’
It was at that moment that Kim Woo-jin prepared to induce fear that far surpassed what he’d done before.
[Isaac Ivanov clears the Forest of Giants dungeon perfectly!]
[Isaac Ivanov creates a new legend!]
The news that Isaac Ivanov had cleared the Forest of Giants Dungeon was transmitted around the world in real time as they stepped out of the gate.
But as time passed, the atmosphere in the world began to shift.
[Isaac Ivanov’s dungeon clear process revealed!]
[How does Isaac Ivanov hunt?]
The reason for that was because news about Isaac Ivanov’s dungeon clearing process began to spread.
-Is that article true? Did Isaac Ivanov really summon a living Hellhound?
-Is there really such a skill?
Isaac Ivanov’s hunting process, which was revealed by the audience he had taken with him, far surpassed common sense, and naturally, it shocked everyone who learned about it.
-Could it be that he tamed the Hellhound instead of summoning it?
ㄴ You need to say something that makes sense. How could he take a tamed monster into a dungeon?
ㄴ There might be a skill like that.
ㄴ There are rumors that he has a subspace skill.
ㄴ I heard that he signed a contract with the Devil in Hell.
ㄴ I heard he can summon that monster in the dungeon because he opened the gates of Hell.
At some point, people began saying that Isaac Ivanov had signed a contract with the Devil which was why he was able to summon the Hellhound from the gates of Hell.
-Isaac Ivanov must have found a bug in the world after it became like a game.
ㄴ I heard this story too.
ㄴ Well if you look at it, that would make a lot of sense.
ㄴ Are the rumors that Isaac Ivanov knows how to end this game true?
ㄴ It might be
Eventually, the rumors transformed to claiming that Isaac Ivanov had found out the truth about the game-like world.
It was the moment when a powerful man trying to save the world suddenly transformed into the person who might know how to end the world.
It was also the moment when Isaac Ivanov’s presence changed.
From that point onwards, the powerful people in the world began treating Isaac Ivanov not as a card they could bet their money on, but as someone who might be holding their fate in his hands.
‘It’s similar to Johann Georg at that time.’
Before returning to the past, a countless number of people had entrusted their fate into the hands of the King of Undead.
‘The problem is from now on.’
Of course, this alone wasn’t enough to let him rival the Messiah Guild or Lee Se-jun as the King of Undead had in the past.
‘There’s still a three floor difference.’
Right now there was a huge, three floor gap between Lee Se-jun and Kim Woo-jin.
No matter how outrageous the rumors became, they couldn’t change these differences.
‘The Messiah Guild’s checks will be even more severe.’
Moreover, Kim Woo-jin had drawn the Messiah Guild’s ire, as well as the interest of those who did not like the Messiah Guild.
The hostility of the true demons who pretended to be saviors to devour the world.
‘We need the attention to gain investments.’
If they couldn’t profit from the interest and attention Isaac Ivanov was garnering, then they had slapped the Dragon in the face for no reason.
‘I know there are anti Messiah Guild forces, but…’
Fortunately, Kim Woo-jin knew the key figures of the anti Messiah Guild faction very well.
‘The problem is I don’t know what kind of relationship the anti Messiah Guild faction has with Johann Georg.’
If they were in contact with the King of Undead, they’ll definitely start weighing their options.
‘If there was only one item but two people want it, in the end, it would be the buyer who suffered a loss.’
That thought alone gave him a headache.
Kim Woo-jin paused his leatherworking and answered the phone.
-How have you been, Kim Woo-jin”
It was Oh Se-chan’s voice.
“What is it?”
-It’s not a big deal, but I have bad news.
