Kill The Hero – Chapter 72
When dealing with multiple monsters, it was important to not get dragged into a protracted battle.
However, if the difference in head count exceeded thousands or tens of thousands, then it became more important to minimize the damage inflicted to your side rather than killing a few more monsters.
Kang Young-ji and her colleagues knew this. The form of the base camp they constructed, was also done with this in mind.
“Those injured fall back immediately!”
“Don’t advance! Just hold your positions!”
With the help of barriers that were set up in between the extremely large trees, the heavily armored tank players blocked entry. Behind them, the mage players continuously cast their magic at the Black Werewolves.
The archers on the trees took down one werewolf after another.
However Kang Young-ji’s performance was the most remarkable.
While blocking waves of Black Werewolves, she was still able to slay them easily.
The movement of the monster wave toward the players was forcefully twisted by Kang Young-ji’s actions.
The monsters either stumbled or collided with each other. In essence, Kang Young-ji’s actions were like causing a major accident on a busy 8-lane highway.
Thanks to this, the pressure the players faced was greatly reduced.
It was an amazing sight.
However, the thoughts of the players weren’t filled with admiration at the performance they were seeing.
‘How much longer do we need to fight?’
They instead were hoping for the situation to end swiftly.
Moreover, monsters weren’t something that could be completely understood by people.
The Black Werewolves would never fight simply in the way the players wished them to.
Keheung! Keheung! Keheung!
In fact, the Black Werewolves had already begun to change the way they fought.
Those that were blocked by their allies began to climb onto and over those in front of them.
Similar to a group of ants stepping on each other’s heads to make a bridge, the werewolves at the back began to use their allies as stepping stones.
After some time it seemed like a second floor of werewolves was made.
“Tanks! Use your skills!”
At the same time, the players who were defending the frontline began to use the skills they’d been saving up to this point.
The Crash Skill. A skill that sends out a shockwave in the direction the user was facing quickly broke through the formation of wolves.
The damage was great.
A Black Werewolf, that had climbed onto one of its allies, fell, crashing into another werewolf and they all became entangled.
The battlefield became even more chaotic.
However, none of the players were able to rejoice.
The cooldown for the Crash skill was five minutes so they had to hold out during that time.
However, everyone’s expressions were no longer as determined as before.
Everyone had enough experience and skill. However, there was one thing that could not be ignored.
‘Even after we kill one, another…’
The fact that the battle was currently not in their favor. Also, they were in a dungeon, where they couldn’t request for reinforcements.
It was the one place where they were forced to survive on their own.
It was why no one asked for help and just pressed forward continuously.
“There’s back up!”
An archer on a tree stopped firing and instead shouted at the top of his lungs.
Everyone heard his cry.
‘What the hell?’
‘Support? Everything we have is already here!’
It was so ridiculous that even a dog wouldn’t believe it.
“It’s support! Support troops are really here!”
But this time, another person shouted that reinforcements had come.
It was good news.
The sounds of the Black Werewolves being attacked a distance away, could be heard.
Kim Woo-jin preferred to fight on a stage that he created. From start to finish, he wanted everything to flow as he intended.
However, the stages that best displayed his ability, were those without any planning.
This was always the case.
This was because Kim Woo-jin was more proficient at brawling than anyone else.
And now it was the same for the Skeleton Soldiers, whose combat greatly resembled their owner, who took control of the situation the moment they entered the battlefield.
The skeletons charged toward the Black Werewolves fiercely.
Moreover, the skeleton’s movements were very organized.
When the leading soldier cuts a thigh, the following soldier cuts the other thigh and when the werewolf turns to attack the ones who attacked it, a third skeleton finishes it off with a blade between its ribs.
Like a well oiled machine, the group of skeletons quickly moved through the Black Werewolves.
It was a sight that was hard to believe.
‘Oh my God!’
It was like the archers who were able to see such a scene, fell in love and forgot to do their jobs.
‘How does this make sense?’
‘They’re just sweeping them away.’
However, they were able to witness an even more amazing scene before the admiration sank in. The Black Werewolves recognized the new threat and moved to eliminate it.
When the two sides clashed fiercely. Suddenly, a golden glow began to shine from a skeleton wearing snakeskin armor and wielding a scimitar.
[Protection of the Sun has been activated.]
[You have possessed a Skeleton Soldier.]
It was the moment Protection of the Sun had been activated on the skeleton controlled by Kim Woo-jin.
[Aura Field has been activated.]
[You are connected to a skeleton. Magic Power consumption increased.]
The glow of the Protection of the Sun then began to spill from the Skeleton Soldier’s armor, and began to spread to it’s companions.
The shimmering golden light surrounded all of the skeletons and seemed to go into their eyes as well.
The Skeleton Soldiers all began to shake as if they’d been injected with powerful drugs.
At the sight, the Black Werewolves were all confused.
Soon after, the golden light faded and revealed a group of skeletons with golden eyes like eagles that seemed to reflect the light of the sun.
And then the already one sided battle became a massacre.
The Skeleton Soldiers which could only cut skin before, began cutting flesh. (TL: basically they were making superficial wounds before and are now dealing real damage.)
Some of the Black Werewolves were cut to pieces within moments.
The battlefield became soaked in blood and littered with limbs.
Then, the situation changed once more.
It was Lee Jin-ah who was basically the icing on the cake.
As he screamed goodbye in russian, the Black Werewolves were overwhelmed by Lee Jin-ah’s kicks and punches.
At an incredible pace, he began accumulating a large pile of bodies.
This was only the beginning.
Wearing the Grim Reaper’s Mask, Kim Woo-jin appeared among the corpses, after which he grabbed one, touched it for a moment then threw it into the group of werewolves.
The fact that he threw the body of their dead at them, infuriated all the Black Werewolves. But none of them paid much interest to the body now in their midst.
So when it exploded, the damage it had dealt was very high.
The werewolves began to panic, but Kim Woo-jin paid no attention to their screams.
[The Ruler of the Battlefield effect has been activated.]
[The Emissary of the Underworld smiles at you.]
What he heard instead was a notification telling him that the real fight had just begun.
Kim Woo-jin smiled.
Today, he was the hero who saved the Messiah Guild.
‘If you are to be a hero who will save the world, you have to help everyone that is in need of help.’ (TL: Is this some kind of insinuation? A necromancer is the savior of the world)
By doing this, he intended to gain the full cooperation and support of the Messiah Guild.
And the Messiah Guild had no choice but to give it to him.
‘While I wear the hero’s mask.’
Even Lee Se-jun, while he wore the mask of the savior of the world, he had no choice but to be a hero.
A self sacrificing hero who provides unlimited charity, consideration and help to those who follow and believe in you.
