-7 Volume 1
Chapter 37. The Silent Appearance
Being an all-in-one didn’t mean that something suddenly changed overnight.
It’s because Jeong Dae-sik didn’t talk about the fact that he became an all-in-one.
He continued the game for twelve hours, and in the meantime, he gave the crews a skill to improve the targeted state.
While Entropy flew around to update skills, Jeong Dae-sik went hunting while testing the newly acquired basic skills.
‘Basic skills are literally the most basic abilities of each series. Even if it doesn’t have a specific effect, it can be applied like reinforcement.’
The characteristics of these skills were similar to magic warfare.
Whether it was reinforcement, implementation, or change, the performance was very different depending on how much horsepower they had.
In other words, even if the reinforcement level is 1, if you put all of your magic power, the strength will increase.
Of course, using all of the horse’s magic power, it was not as easy as I thought.
It was like I decided to use up all my stamina through exercise today.
While intense physical activity could in theory burn out all your stamina, you need an effective program to do so in a short time.
The same goes for horsepower consumption.
It means that the mere thought that I have to use up all of my magic today does not mean that all of it is used up.
When I felt threatened with my life, I needed a certain amount of concentration, or willpower.
And in terms of efficiency, there was no reason to insist on basic skills.
Since the basic skill is basic to the end, it was more effective when used in combination with other skills.
In the case of Jeong Dae-sik, it is said that it is more efficient to fight by adding reinforcement to a passive skill called a steel body or an active skill called a powerful force rather than fighting with reinforcement on the whole body.
Changes and implementations were the same.
Mind, manipulation, and release were also not significantly different.
If I had to give another example, it was summons.
If you purchase a summoning skill, it was possible to call a specific entity in some circumstances.
Such is Undine’s summons.
Even in a dry desert, if you use Undine’s summoning skill, you can call it even if its effectiveness is low.
However, the basic skill, summoning, was dependent on the surrounding environment.
If you just use Summon in the forest, there is a high chance that it will come out.
If it was a dungeon infested with the dead, it was easy to summon a race or a wight.
However, just because a large amount of magic was put into it did not mean that a higher being would appear.
It just increases the number.
Jeong Dae-sik went around to learn this basic skill and diligently used the status enhancement skill for himself.
In any case, the purpose of this hunting was training.
So, rather than being excited about the fact that he became an all-in-one, he focused on training the basic skills he had acquired.
The same was true of the members of the unit who were devoted to the training.
They did not realize much of the effect of the status enhancement skill that day.
However, after returning from hunting for twelve hours, he fell asleep in a very tired state and when he woke up, he could feel something different from usual.
It became clear when I went out hunting.
The state of his body changed day by day depending on what kind of state-improving skill Jung Dae-sik gave him.
When Jeong Dae-sik applied the muscle strength enhancement skill, his strength improved the next day.
The next day after giving the physical strength enhancement skill, I did not get tired no matter how much I walked around, and the agility enhancement skill gave me faster feet than yesterday.
It was most revealed in magic.
Since magic is what most hunters feel lacking the most, Dae-sik Jeong focused on the magic enhancement skill after applying different physical condition skills once.
I applied the magic boost skill for two days in a row, and on the third day, everyone was amazed at the amount of magical power that increased significantly.
The permanent reinforcement offered by Jeong Dae-sik as a prize for the 12-hour game also played a significant role.
After the members of the unit knew what his product was, they took turns taking first place as if woven.
Thanks to that, everyone at least once benefited from the permanent enhancement skill.
Instead of increasing their magical power, there were people who focused on something else.
It was none other than Jaewoo Lee.
He had a huge amount of natural magic power, so there was no need to increase the amount of magic power further.
Rather, it was important to use mana more efficiently, so it was made to improve the five senses.
The five senses directly affected the battle situation, such as grasping the flow of the battlefield and penetrating the weaknesses of monsters.
This is important to all hunters, but more important to those who require dexterity and concentration, such as blacksmiths, wizards, alchemists and summoners.
So, I greatly increased Lee Jae-woo’s five senses, and his attitude toward battle was much better than before.
Instead of using unnecessary bluffs, he thought rationally, and he did not lose his composure even in urgent situations.
His drawing skills have also greatly improved, and his appearance as a silent teenage boy has faded and he has become more of a hunter.
It’s been ten days since we entered the natural resource reserve to eradicate monsters.
After the 12-hour game, Jeong Dae-sik praised the crew who had gathered at the base camp again.
“Everyone’s counter number has increased significantly. Now it’s easy to catch 100 or so.”
Kim Song-geun said with a recalled face at Jeong Dae-sik’s words.
“Honestly, I think I can catch 200 or 300 more instead of 100.”
“That’s right. There aren’t many monsters left in the area, so it’s 100. If there were more monsters, it wouldn’t have stopped at this level.”
Even so, Daesik Jeong was thinking the same thing.
He hadn’t been hunting for a few days.
As with the troops, his skills were also increasing day by day, so if Jeong Dae-sik goes out to catch monsters, the troops have nothing to catch.
Reluctantly, he stayed at the base camp to practice skill operation and gave up monster hunting to the troops.
But it seemed like it was time to stop.
Jeong Dae-sik said affirming the words of the troops.
“I think we can slowly withdraw from this place. For the day tomorrow, we will search the area thoroughly to see if there are any remaining monsters, and then we will clear them and join the Titans.”
Currently, the Titan raid was divided into units and cleared out monsters around Gangwon-do.
Some units have already completed their missions and went to Gangneung, where the main unit is located, so Jeong Dae-sik planned to go there with the Fenrir unit tomorrow night.
“Then, today’s first place is Godeokhwa. Godeokhwa.”
“Here it is.”
Jeong Dae-sik gave permanent reinforcement to the repair of the Cheongang wall that he was proposing.
The Cheongang Wall Repair, which had already received the second permanent reinforcement, was emitting a strange light unlike before.
With him thanking him, he sent the troops back to the tent, and Jeong Dae-sik went to rest with Entropy as well.
But then, the team leader in charge of the support team summoned him.
“Jeong Dae-sik, wait a minute. The commander of the engineering department just sent an order.”
“Please check your device once.”
As the team leader said, a hologram message arrived on his cell phone.
Jeong Dae-sik nodded, I’ll check it out, then went into his private tent and unarmored.
And the message was played.
A beam from the mobile phone played a hologram the size of an A4 paper in the air.
Kang Young-hoo, the size of a miniature, was talking to Jeong Dae-sik.
– I heard from Jeong Dae-sik and Kim Tae-hee. She seems to have figured out her identity. I told you not to get caught like that…
Also, it seems that it was Kang Yeong-hoo who helped Choi Hee enter the Fenrir unit.
In fact, Choi Hee had drawn a line saying that she couldn’t be part of the Titan raid.
At any rate, she would not have been able to enter the Fenrir Unit without the help of Kang Young-hoo, hiding her identity.
– I’m sorry that I unintentionally deceived you. Choi Hee had no choice but to make a conscious effort to join the Fenrir unit. Anyway, she doesn’t have the same power as her, so why don’t we move on to that? She doesn’t have to feel burdened. As long as she’s in the Fenrir unit, it’s only Kim Tae-hee, not Choi-hee. She promised herself that she would be Kim Tae-hee.
After coughing in vain, Kang Yeong-hoo brought up the main point.
-Anyway, Choi-hee… No, Kim Tae-hee will arrive there tomorrow morning. Then join her and let her take on her new mission. The related information has been sent as an attachment, so please check it. Necessary supplies were also sent to Kim Tae-hee. By the way, I hope to finish all of this by the day after tomorrow. After three days, the entire Titan raid will return. Let the Fenrir troops also join. then come on
The hologram turned off automatically, and Jeong Dae-shik looked at the attached material.
It was about a boss mob that popped out of a dungeon, and it seems that Kim Tae-hee went to catch him and sadly missed it.
The gnome led his followers to a deserted place.
It was judged that this was the place, so Kim Tae-hee came here.
This monster, a kind of devil, was a boss mob in a dungeon infested with things like incubus, succubus, and vampires that suck human spirits.
This type of monster is difficult to deal with in a different sense from the undead, and it was essential to bring a scroll or item of purification and awakening.
‘It transforms into a figure that sees through the opponent’s weakness, or shows an illusion, while sucking in the spirit… In particular, you have to be careful with the suction that steals magic power. Once you’ve exhausted your spirits, you’ll become a Servant of that Servant. It seems that some hunters have already been hit.’
The undead queen also had the talent to devour the soul of the opponent and create a ghoul knight.
This Asmodeus was also similar.
‘Perhaps because of the hunters who were dragged by Asmodeus, Kim Tae-hee missed this guy. Otherwise, you wouldn’t have missed a monster like this.’
Jeong Dae-sik predicted that dealing with insane hunters would be more difficult than dealing with Asmodeus.
The other risk factor is that it’s impossible to predict what Asmodeus will look like…?
Asmodeus had the characteristic that his appearance changed depending on the viewer.
For this reason, the form of Asmodeus was not clearly stated in the accompanying documents.
The classification was also unclear, so there were only question marks all over the place.
There were video footage of him fighting Asmodeus, though.
It looks like it was filmed while attacking the dungeon, but it didn’t show up at all on the electronic device.
Everyone was acting like they were fighting an invisible man.
‘It seems cumbersome.’
Still, I wasn’t worried.
Superstar Choi Hee is coming here, and not only Jeong Dae-sik, but also the power of the troops, hasn’t it been strengthened?
Asmodeus was ranked 5th in terms of grade, so it seemed that he could deal with it enough in its current state.
