Chapter 7. The taste of rice flour
The uproar caused by the Monster Break was widely reported.
Although it is small, it is the first Monster Break in 10 years.
It had to be noisy.
Moreover, Monster Break meant the emergence of a new dungeon.
There was no guarantee that something like this wouldn’t happen again, so self-proclaimed and self-proclaimed experts appeared in the news and made assumptions about what would happen in the future.
In addition, the story of Jeong Dae-sik, a righteous man who saved a bus passenger, also flowed out.
Jeong Dae-sik did not give any interviews and did not contact the media, but the passengers on the bus were different.
He vividly conveyed the sense of crisis at that time, and wanted to express his gratitude to him even through broadcasting.
– Oh, I don’t know what it would be like now if it hadn’t been for that young man. How much effort must have been made by this old man to save his life… I’m just grateful.
-I want to say thank you for saving my mother…
Jeong Dae-sik looked at the screen indifferently and turned it over.
I didn’t mean to say thank you anyway.
Right now, all my nerves were focused on getting stronger than I am now.
‘In the meantime, I was immersed in the thought of buying a building, so I didn’t have a proper piece of armor. Even with a single automatic rifle, the weapon has been consumed all the time. In the meantime, I’ve been able to withstand it with my strengthening skills… but it would be better to upgrade.’
Jeong Dae-shik went around the hunter-related community and did a rough market research.
However, armor and weapons were considerably more expensive than expected.
‘I knew that the equipment used by hunters was expensive, but this is really huge. 1 billion is not even money, is it?’
The most basic equipment.
One breastplate made of reinforced aluminum cost hundreds of millions of dollars. Helmet, shoulder rests, arm protectors, thigh protectors, gloves and boots were easily over 1.5 billion in order to provide a full set.
‘Damn it, the cash price seems reasonable. What’s so expensive?’
No matter how hard you call it, it’s just aluminum, isn’t it?
But I couldn’t believe it was so expensive.
‘If you want to buy a piece of armor that you want to be okay with, you can easily break several billions. Uh huh… With that money, I’d still buy a building. In that case, I’d rather upgrade the reinforcement skill.’
Jeong Dae-sik grunted inwardly and recognized the weapon this time.
‘The price of an automatic rifle that can mount up to three amplifiers… is 100 million won. Weapons are cheap though. But if you add various options to this, it will cost hundreds of millions of dollars. When equipped with special bullets that increase the power of the gun, this is also quite expensive. Above all else, aren’t special bullets consumables? If you use it once, you’re done, but how much does it cost from several hundred to several thousand? Isn’t that a bit harsh?’
He sighed and threw the phone away.
Then, lying on the floor in the cramped corner of the room, I was deep in thought.
‘It’s hard to die just by buying skills, but if you want to equip it, your back will be bent. It’s getting stronger, and it costs a lot of money. If it’s like this, it’s unreasonable to cover the money with the mak-gong. I prefer to solo…’
This time he turned over and rolled his head.
‘How much solo can you play in a situation where you can’t deal with even a single metal dung beetle? At best, you have to catch a hell-beast dog… No matter how hard you try, it’s impossible to catch a guy who can make real money. If I went to catch Cerberus by myself, would it become dog food in an instant?’
Jeong Dae-sik recalled the moment when Choi Hee appeared.
Appearing with thunder and lightning, it suddenly drove monsters to death.
Literally one hundred per day.
If he had that kind of ability, it wouldn’t matter if he was alone, but it wasn’t Jeong Dae-sik.
-…If something like this happens in the future, just like Jeong Dae-sik, each and every ordinary hunter will need more activity.
Jeong Dae-sik thought carefully about what Han-na Jang had said.
‘…Yeah, if you can’t do it alone, there’s a way to have multiple people. What if I organize a hole?’
It didn’t seem like a bad idea.
No, it was quite reasonable.
‘I have already mastered the three abilities of the reinforcement world, the spiritual world, and the change world. It’s the same as getting the healer and tank abilities while the dealer and the buffer are already available, so you might be able to organize a raid.’
Jeong Dae-sik jumped up from his seat and sat down.
and opened his mouth.
Entropy immediately appeared as the magic concentrated on the palm was floated in the air.
“Huh? Your appearance has changed… a little?”
Will the store upgrade be affected in any way?
Entropy, which was nothing more than a speech bubble, changed.
This is why the speech bubble has symbols that are considered to be eyes, nose, and mouth.
Should I say I have a face?
Although it was only at the level of an emoticon to be called a face, it looked much more specific than before anyway.
Then entropy briefly explained.
“I see. Even if I say that it has changed, it’s just two circles and one more triangle.”
Jeong Dae-sik said in response to an attitude of not saying useless things and telling them to quickly reveal the business.
“It’s not because I’ve improved my mental skills by upgrading the shop.”
Jeong Dae-sik nodded and soon a window appeared in front of him.
Currently, he had a total of three mental skills that he could acquire.
“Observation has already been bought… Provocation and enemy concentration?”
“What’s the difference between taunt and the enemy’s concentration?”
Entropy made an expression that he didn’t know.
This time, it wasn’t because of the mood, it was certain.
This is because the emoticon on the speech bubble, which is considered a face, has changed to ‘-_-‘.
“Isn’t the ability normally used by tanks closer to the enemy’s concentration?”
“Then there’s no need for provocations? If you only scribble a few shots…”
“Well, if you have this skill, you can save the power wasted in the preemptive attack.”
Anyway, the price of one skill is 10 million won.
Thinking it was cheap, Jeong Dae-sik bought both.
“Then I’ll buy two things: taunt and enemy focus.”
“How much money do you have left?”
I’ve been earning like a dog so far, so I have quite a bit of money left even after upgrading the shop and purchasing these and other abilities.
Still, I was amazed that I couldn’t buy a pair of armor.
‘I’m starting to feel that my sense of money is getting numb. Now, when you say 10 million won, the first thing that comes to mind is that it’s cheap.’
Now that you have acquired two skills, you have the basic qualities of a tank.
‘Now, with the money left over, I’ll have to set up the armor and practice a little at the makgong.’
Jeong Dae-sik got up from his seat and tried to go out to the mall.
Then I stopped and picked up my phone.
‘Before that, I have to sell Choi Hee’s autograph. do you know Can I get a share?’
Then he wrote on a second-hand trading site, thinking that he should spend a little more on buying the armor.
-‘sell. Superstar Choi Hee’s autograph. A hot new statue.’
Daesik Jeong sold Choi Hee’s autograph for 100 million won.
For Jeong Dae-shik, it was a windfall.
‘I think Choi Hee’s popularity is great. It’s not even a dead person, but the autograph price is so expensive.’
Jeong Dae-sik hummed and went to the armor shop.
And there, he bought 500 million worth of reinforced aluminum armor.
There was one used for sale, so I was able to prepare a full set from head to toe.
Then I went to the arms store right across the street.
I went to the store where I bought the automatic rifle last time, gave away the old one, and added 280 million to buy a new automatic rifle for 300 million.
With three amplifiers and three economizers, it was much better.
There, with his brilliant speech, he received three more special bullets.
“I felt it last time, but it really has no strength. Do you know how much this special bullet costs? It’s 300, 300!”
Jeong Dae-sik shuddered at the owner who took the special bullets out of the case with an expression that he was going to die.
“Aren’t you going to put that case in?”
“I won, take it! Take it!”
The owner complained over and over again, but he didn’t look like he hated it that much.
In fact, those who sell armor and weapons did not dislike selling things to novice hunters.
Most of them die on the first hunt, so they don’t come back a second time.
So, some merchants used to sprinkle salt to say that if a beginner hunter bought a weapon for the first time, it would be unlucky.
Conversely, a hunter who lived with Jeong Dae-sik and visited again was treated as a nobleman.
What if a novice hunter saves his life with his first weapon and sells it back for good fortune?
That’s why, the owner was very kind and provided special ammunition and a new automatic rifle, including a case, and said.
“Please come back to sell this weapon again by surviving next time.”
“It must be so, so next time, please put some of that as well.”
At the words Jeong Dae-sik chinked at the handsome gunman, the owner turned his head.
“No way! It’s from my personal collection!”
“Don’t say no.”
Jeong Dae-shik packed up the things he had purchased and left the mall, trembling that he had only said it once.
And I was hungry, so I was going to the market, wondering if I should have some rice or something, when I heard a strange noise from somewhere.
‘Are there even jets?’
Jeong Dae-sik lifted his head calmly, but he was dazed.
Something was flying through the clouds.
It immediately fell in front of me like a shot put.
Sidewalk blocks were smashed, creating dust and noise.
Among them, it was none other than Choi Hee.
Jeong Dae-sik was so surprised that he pursed his lips.
“Wow, hey, how are you…?”
Then, Choi Hee quickly got up.
As you can see, he was wearing a sweatshirt from where he had run in a hurry.
Dressed in an Adidas track top that was full of lint and track pants with her knees protruding, she looked at Jeong Dae-sik with furious eyes.
A cold sweat ran down my back in the wind.
“What… to me, anything?”
In front of the bewildered Jeong Dae-sik, Choi Hee offered something.
It was, unfortunately, a sign.
It must have been her autograph, which was sold by Jeong Dae-sik just before.
Obviously, I finished a deal with the buyer at the entrance of the subway station before coming out this way, but I don’t know why it’s in Choi’s hands.
Fluttering the sign, Choi Hee opened her mouth.
“It could be, I was just about to move on. The more I thought about it, the more angry I got.”
“I, who is famous for not signing autographs, signed my autograph with a big heart. Do you just take it and sell it?”
There was no excuse, so Jeong Dae-shik became a honey-eaten dumbass.
