Kill The Hero – Chapter 78
-Isaac Ivanov is rewarded for his sacrifice.
-That’s the great Messiah Guild, willing to reward those who make sacrifices for the good of the world.
Lee Jin-ah who was watching the news on his smartphone, couldn’t help but exclaim in admiration.
“It’s really amazing. How did he think about getting out like this?”
Oh Se-chan, who was looking at documents, nodded.
“Right? You didn’t expect that did you?”
“Of course. Donation is not something I’d do even in my dreams. Just hearing the word gives me goosebumps.”
Lee Jin-ah laughed at that.
“Anyway, what do you think the Messiah Guild will give? An item? Or money? How much do you think they’ll give?”
“The Summon Golem skill.”
“It was already discussed before they went to the press. They’ll thank us for saving them and reward us with the Summon Golem skill. So it’s okay.”
The gift was discussed with the Messiah Guild before they even made a statement in the media, so there was nothing to question.
However, Lee Jin-ah still found a question.
“What about me?”
“No, I did it with him but I get nothing? I should at least get something!”
When he heard that, Oh Se-chan reached into his pocket and handed something to Lee Jin-ah.
“Then, here’s something.”
“That’s right, chocolate. Don’t you like chocolate? That one was pretty expensive but I deliberately didn’t eat it or hide it from you.”
Lee Jin-ah looked at Oh Se-chan with a sour expression. Of course, he took the chocolate anyway. He already knew Oh Se-chan well enough to not really expect many rewards.
“What have you been looking at all this time?”
“I have a request to buy a dungeon. So I’m looking for a very expensive one.”
“If it’s just a purchase request, you can make other people do it right?”
“This time it’s an important customer.”
“Who is it?”
Lee Jin-ah looked up when he heard the name.
Of course, it wasn’t because he didn’t know who Park Yong-wan was. (TL: Duh…)
“The guy who already took control of the Phoenix Guild is looking for a dungeon broker?”
He just had doubts that the man who had become one of the most powerful players in Korea needed help finding a dungeon.
“He’s purchasing it for his beloved right-hand man. His love for his men is really strong. It’s admirable.”
“His right-hand man? Who’s that?”
“You know him too.”
“No way, is it Kim Woo-jin?”
In response to his prompt, Oh Se-chan only smiled.
Lee Jin-ah laughed at that.
“So you’ll hold hands and rob Park Yong-wan’s pockets? Huh? Isn’t that a scam?”
“Fraud? This is called sales! Sales! Do I have to teach you even something like this?”
“Okay. I don’t even want to get caught up in this.”
Lee Jin-ah reached past Oh Se-chan’s hands and grabbed one of the documents.
“This one would be nice.”
- Floors: 2
- Difficulty: B rank
- Maximum number of entries: 25
- Requirements: Level 40 and below
- Conditions: Survive for 10 days on the 2nd floor of the dungeon.
- Reward: Survival Stone(C)
“A survival quest?”
“What do you think?”
“It’s B rank and the number of entries is 25, plus you need to survive for 10 days…it’s the perfect dungeon to risk your life and level up. And since it’s hard to find a survival quest like this one, the price is pretty high. It’s a really good choice.”
Afterward, Lee Jin-ah nodded and handed the document to Oh Se-chan. However, he pulled it back just as Oh Se-chan was about to receive it.
Lee Jin-ah tilted his head, then Oh Se-chan tilted his head as well.
They looked at each other like they didn’t know what to say.
“What are you doing? Give it to me.”
“Aren’t you going to go level up to?”
In response, Lee Jin-ah made an expression as if he’d lost his soul. (TL: Ah I was a bit confused about this part, turns out Lee Jin-ah was signing his own death warrant without realising)
It was common knowledge that players needed to level up quickly, the players needed to hunt and kill many monsters. And it was also common knowledge that dungeons with survival quests had much more monsters than the other dungeons with specialised quests.
However, when they intended to level up, regardless of common knowledge or not, no player headed to a dungeon with a survival quest.
Therefore Lee Jin-ah was quite nervous when they first entered the first floor of the dungeon and almost immediately reached the second floor.
“This is ridiculous.”
But contrary to his expectations, the first day was pretty relaxed.
Kim Woo-jin used the first day on the second floor to prepare for the hunt rather than immediately start hunting.
Exploring the terrain, setting traps, creating stages for battle, grasping the types and types of monsters.
And when the hunting began on the second day, Kim Woo-jin’s pace was different from usual. Lee Jin-ah talked three times more than usual and felt much more relaxed than usual.
This pace lasted until the seventh day. They had enough time to have tea after their meals until the seventh day.
“How is this possible?”
Therefore Lee Jin-ah was surprised.
“How can I level up so quickly when we’re hunting in moderation?”
The leveling speed was faster than ever even though they were hunting at a very relaxed pace.
“Are you using nuclear weapons?”
Lee Jin-ah had good reason to be surprised.
This was Kim Woo-jin’s style as a Hunting Dog. His hunting style was nothing special, or even memorable, it simply made use of the most optimal conditions to achieve a simple hunt.
The time was fixed, there were no other forces to watch out for and they were both talented. Therefore they reached level 40 very easily.
Level 40. From Kim Woo-jin’s perspective, it was a great goal to open the gift he received, so for that goal, he progressed steadily.
[Your level has increased.]
[Achieved Level 40. Inventory has been increased by 8 spaces.]
[The Emissary of the Underworld admires your growth. Inventory has been increased by 8 spaces.](TL: at this point this halo is more than a sugar daddy)
[The Emissary of the Underworld has sent a catalogue as a reward for your growth.](TL: point proven…)
Finally, he reached his goal.
‘I can finally open my gifts.’
As soon as he reached level 40, Kim Woo-jin began opening his rewards one by one.
- Level: 40
- Halo: Emissary of the Underworld
- Health: (122+202)
- Stamina: (2+85)
- Magic Power: (3+118)
- Achievements: 26
- Extra Points: 3
After that he tore the two skill pages he had gained from his previous adventures.
[You have learned the skill Summon Golem.]
[You have learned the skill Blood Fog.]
‘One thing remaining…’
All that was left was to now open the catalogue sent by the halo as a reward.
“What happened? Did you level up?”
At that time, Lee Jin-ah walked up to him.
“Then you should’ve told me. We’re a team! Now we should congratulate you for the rank up. Come on skeletons! Your master has leveled up so let’s give him a round of applause! Do you want a birthday cake? Huh? Let’s take this opportunity to do all the things we missed.”
Kim Woo-jin looked at Lee Jin-ah with a cold expression.
“Ah, you’ll have to blow out candles! We don’t have cake, but we can get candles. Hang on, I’ll go grab a few tree branches and light them. Hahaha!” (TL: If I was the mc…I’d want to kill him too)
As if he didn’t see Kim Woo-jin’s expression, Lee Jin-ah began to look around, further cementing how leisurely this hunt was.
Kim Woo-jin ignored Lee Jin-ah and focused on his gains once again.
The last gift he received was finally open. Then a catalogue appeared above Kim Woo-jin’s hands.
At that time, Lee Jin-ah who was tugging on a tree branch stopped pretending and shouted in surprise.
“Huh? What? Did you get something good?”
(TL: Big power up at the end for our mc, I wonder what happens next. Stay tuned guys ^-^)
