-7 Volume 11
“So, it’s SSS-class. This suit breathes its own magic.”
“Breathing magic, what does that mean?”
“It means that they draw in the magical energy that is naturally scattered around them. As you know, dragons are not bound by magic. They don’t use the magic within their body like humans or normal monsters do, they use the magic of nature freely. I can use it as material.
Should we say that we breathe magic through our skin? Anyway, that’s why weapons made with black dragon skins have the property of attracting magical powers. Although it cannot rapidly recharge the amount of consumed magic, it has a function that restores the amount of magic more quickly.”
Since it is a weapon of great function, Jeong Dae-sik completely forgot the thought of wanting to look at other items.
He was also busy stroking the black dragon skin armor and admiring him.
Then Hanna Jang continued to speak.
“The only downside to this weapon is that it is dangerous to meet other types of dragons.”
“Yes, especially since black dragons are ferocious and powerful, they are known to be a threat to other dragons. That’s why it is said that if you wear items made from the by-products of black dragons, the dragons are especially hostile.”
“What happens if we meet the same black dragon?”
“Well, black dragons themselves are rare, so it’s not known about that. But isn’t it one of those things? Buying hostility or favors. The function of activating and protecting the body is natural…”
Since then, Hanna Jang has been talking about black dragon skin armor.
Most of them were praises with rhetoric added to them.
Perhaps it was Jeong Dae-sik’s mastery of admiring the Black Dragon Skin Armor and trying to keep him from thinking about anything else.
He knew very well what he had just left behind.
Black Dragon Skin Armor, as it is an SSS-class item, it’s incredibly great, but it doesn’t belong to Jeong Dae-sik anyway, and he can’t sell it, so it wasn’t of much help to Jeong Dae-sik’s most desperate financial problem.
Jeong Dae-sik spoke like a passing horse while wearing Black Dragon Skin Armor.
“Then the armor is done, I’ll have to look at the weapons next.”
At the words of Daesik Jeong, Hanna Jang gave an expression of surprise for a moment.
It was the same for the person in charge who was standing there.
He looked at him as if he were the most shameless human being in the world, but Jeong Dae-sik said he didn’t care.
“I guess we didn’t plan on using just one piece of armor? Since armor is just armor, of course we need weapons. That’s why you brought a battle suit and knuckle gloves together last time. It’s like that this time too. Of course, the item I took last time I’m thinking of returning it, because it’s like taking an SSS grade instead of an AAA grade item.”
Hanna Jang pursed her lips when she saw Jeong Dae-sik who said that he had to put out one more SSS-class item.
But as of today, she had no choice but to be in the position of the weak, so she quickly gave up the fight and said.
“Okay. So, is it okay if it’s a short-range weapon like knuckle gloves?”
“Yes, it would be nice if it was worn directly on the fist. If possible, it would be compatible with this black dragon skin armor.”
Hanna Jang took out the list again and looked over it, and looked back at the person in charge standing next to her as if she suddenly remembered it.
“You, the manager, don’t know what’s here best? Is there an item that meets the requirements of Mr. Jeong Dae-sik?”
“There are things that are similar, but…”
“It’s not SSS-class. It’s an M-class item.”
My eyes widened when I heard that it was an M-class item.
Jeong Dae-sik said with a shiver.
“If it’s an M-class item, it’s better for me.”
“Ah, wait! SSS-class items and M-class items are a different story! Even the executors can’t take M-class items out of the national treasury! Even Horagales that Choi Hee took is SSS-class!”
“But, isn’t the Magjeon that you decided to give me anyway, isn’t it M-class? But what’s the difference if you give me one more?”
“But that’s just one part!”
“Uh, so does that mean that Han Mi-ran is right?”
Recalling what Mi-ran Han said that she was trying to catch Jeong Dae-sik with only one part, Han-na Jang’s face turned red as she bit her lip.
Then the person in charge, who had been silent all along, came forward and said a word.
“I understand that you already have M-class weapons. Not everyone can use M-class weapons. Aside from their inherent destructive power… weapons with performance that in some cases even sacrifice the user. But you’re going to use two of them instead of one? Are you really that talented?”
“I think you just heard? I’m the first all-in-one. If I don’t have the talent, who has it?”
The person in charge could not find any words to protest, so he kept his mouth shut until wrinkles formed on his chin.
Jeong Dae-sik did not have any desire to offend Jang Han-na or him, so he spoke with a slightly humble attitude.
“Of course, even me, it would be difficult to deal with several M-class weapons. It’s a daunting task for me too. If there is a weapon with the performance I want from among the SSS-class weapons, I can bring it with me. Isn’t there?”
Of course, it was a highly calculated statement.
Jeong Dae-sik already understood the fact that there is no Knuckle type among the SSS-class weapons from the words of the person in charge.
If it were, I wouldn’t have talked about M-class weapons in the first place.
Then Hanna Jang sighed heavily and said,
“I can’t help it. I think I’ll have to do it like this, so I can hold you back.”
The person in charge assumed that Jeong Dae-sik had already been instructed to hand over any items in the state property vault from the superior, and quietly brought another box.
It was much smaller than the black dragon skin armor it contained.
It wasn’t even the size that usually fits knuckles or gloves.
At best, something like a ring or earrings?
Holding a small box that looked like a ring case, the person in charge unlocked the seal as well.
As expected, what was inside was a ring.
It was an old-looking item with a rather eerie aura in a bold design that a man would wear.
The person in charge handed the box to Jeong Dae-sik and said.
“This is called Yamafan.”
“Since the origin of the item is unknown, it is not known exactly what or how it is nested. Just looking at its performance, I think it may contain an anglerfish, a shikigami, or a gluttonous horse.”
“Wait, I asked you to show me a weapon that is easy to use with fists…”
“Well, it’s probably faster to show than to talk. But be careful. There are side effects.”
The person in charge did not say what the side effects were and told him to try the ring.
Well, I thought I would have to die if I didn’t give a warning, so Jeong Dae-sik put on the ring.
Then the person in charge summoned something into the air by magic.
He created a bird that glowed white like a magician.
Then, he beckoned him to try attacking with his right hand with the ring on.
Jeong Dae-sik clenched his fists without hesitation.
Then the bird disappeared without a trace.
Jeong Dae-sik was bewildered, so the person in charge pulled up his glasses and said.
“No… I don’t know anything?”
It seemed cramped, so Hanna Jang intervened in the end.
“The ring swallows up everything it touches.”
“Yeah, if you make a fist with a hand with a ring on it, something in it will eat anything that touches your fist. Should I say make it disappear? It can’t be compared. Depending on the user’s use, a ranged attack is also possible. You will probably understand what I mean when you go out hunting and use it yourself.”
“Then what are the side effects?”
“As it is an M-class item… instead of boasting great performance, there is a part you have to bear. That is hunger.”
“Are you hungry?”
When Jeong Dae-sik threw a counter-moon at the rather absurd remark, Jang Han-na shrugged her shoulders.
“Yeah, that’s why the ring was named Yamafan. The more I use it, the more hungry I get.”
“The only side effect of being hungry is…”
“Oh, Dae-sik Jeong, have you ever gone hungry? It’s not just that you’re hungry. You’re really hungry. It’s the same as being hungry.”
When it comes to starvation, Jeong Dae-sik also had a knack for it.
This is because when he was young, he would often go hungry because he couldn’t afford food when he was going to orphanage.
When I just left the orphanage and became independent, there was a time when I had no money, so I only ate wheat porridge for three days.
As I recalled the pain at that time, I could barely understand what the side effects were.
“If you ignore the side effects and keep using it, you will get a state similar to starvation. As you lose weight and your body dries out, you become very bloated. If you do it wrong, you can starve. It’s getting worse, so the expression “maw ring” is just right.”
“What can I do to get rid of the side effects?”
“It’s simple. You can eat it. But you have to eat a lot. You have to eat enough to make up for the calories you lost while using Yamafan.”
“Then the cost of food…”
Jeong Dae-sik muttered faintly.
And he looked down at Yamafan with dissatisfaction.
I really liked the Black Dragon Skin Armor, but I didn’t like it because I thought it would have serious side effects.
However, since it was an M-class weapon, it was difficult to give up on it and choose something else.
If Jeong Dae-sik asks you to show him something other than Yama-hwan, Jang Han-na will tell you that there is no suitable item here, and ask you to choose from SS-level or lower.
‘I said that one attack power was certain, so there is nothing I can do about it. Let’s take it.’
“Okay. I’ll use two of these weapons to borrow. Then… Show me the other parts from the Magi.”
What was in the last box handed to Jeong Dae-sik was another part of the Magjeon.
If the best thing he received was the left wrist armor, that is, the left vampire, what was in the national treasure chest was the right leg armor and the light quiche.
