-9 Volume 22
Jeong Dae-sik asked Major Mikhail in disappointment.
“Can’t you collect these monster corpses on the way home?”
Major Mikhail shook his head.
“Unfortunately, the decay rate of the monster’s corpse is significantly faster when it leaves the dungeon.”
“Isn’t it cold here? Is that still the case?”
“The decay rate may be a little slower, but it is the same. Besides, it’s not that cold here. It’s cold now because the sun is hidden in the sky, but if you defeat Chernobog, the temperature in the area will return to normal. Then it will quickly rot and disappear.”
Jeong Dae-sik slurped his taste buds, saying he was sorry. He’s hunting to train his troops anyway, so he can’t just say it’s a waste, but whatever it is, it’s a waste.
With these numerous monster corpses, I couldn’t stop walking away, so Jeong Dae-sik looked at the entropy and asked.
Seeing the entropy that suddenly appeared, Major Mikhail, who was next to him, flinched. It was the same with the other soldiers. It seemed that he was still not used to entropy, which appeared and disappeared from time to time. Even more so, because she’s in the form of a little girl whose entropy doesn’t fit in such a lively place.
“Isn’t there a skill that can handle monster corpses?”
“I know. But that’s a small area of effect. You’d have to use the skill ten times to dismantle a large monster, right?”
It wasn’t that Jeong Dae-sik didn’t think of a way to deal with monsters more easily. However, even if there are related skills, if they are not upgraded enough, the effect is insignificant.
I broke 1 billion when I leveled up once, so I needed 9 billion to just make level 10. He was also saving money on combat skills to upgrade the shop, but it was a shame to waste money on those skills.
“How much can you reduce?”
“You mean 10 billion won for the cheapest one?”
“In that case, it would be better to learn the dismantling skill and sell it to the store from time to time! There’s no reason to buy a compressed box and carry it with you, right?”
Jeong Dae-sik, who had said that, suddenly changed his mind.
“No, wait. If I learn the dismantling skill, put the monster corpse in a compression box, and sell it to a by-product disposal facility later… Will I be able to get my money back?”
‘Let’s get the dismantling skill and upgrade up to level 5 first. Then you can spend 4 billion. Even if it’s a bit annoying, you have to use the skill several times. After that, if you spend 10 billion won to buy a compression box… You’ll be left with the monster byproducts obtained here.’
Jeong Dae-sik said that it would be worth the investment if he stopped.
“Okay. Get the dismantling skill and upgrade to level 5.”
“I’ll buy a compression box. The cheapest one.”
With this, 14 billion flew away.
The remaining balance is approximately 120 billion won.
It was not that there was no money earned in the meantime, but compensation in Hawaii was still there, so it was a long way from collecting 1 trillion. Jeong Dae-sik sighed deeply when he realized that he had to save a whopping 880 billion won.
‘So, when are you going to upgrade the shop by collecting 1 set? Should I just upgrade the skill that I am satisfied with to level 6?’
I was skeptical about whether I should upgrade the store while spending a trillion dollars. Even at level 6, there were a number of skills that had not yet been acquired. If you keep upgrading the skills you already have, you can become the strongest person.
Nevertheless, the reason why I could not give up level 7 was due to the feeling of a certain limit at level 6.
It is none other than a combination of skills.
‘My fighting ability is sufficient with the power of strong power, the right of invincibility, and the right of counterattack. It’s enough just to upgrade one steel body as well as defense. Already equipped with M-class equipment, upgrading these skills simply increases the destructive power. I need more than that.’
Jeong Dae-sik wanted to upgrade the store, but there was a reason he wanted to use entropy more effectively.
Daesik Jung made Entropy a kind of partner by becoming an all-in-one that acquired all types of abilities.
It is possible to not only deploy entropy in battle through implementation, change, and reinforcement, but also accept all the information acquired by entropy through the link.
However, it was unreasonable to say that Jeong Dae-sik became the target ego weapon in the first place. This is because entropy cannot use skills on its own. Jeong Dae-sik had to give orders one by one, and no matter how much consciousness was shared through the link, there was a sense that it was insufficient in an urgent battle situation. At the very least, it is somewhat cumbersome to use the skill.
To weaponize entropy, it had to go through three stages: implementation, transformation, and reinforcement. In addition, there was a limit to operating entropy because the attack skill had to be specified separately.
But what if, implementation, change, and reinforcement skills could be combined at once?
The command given to entropy itself is greatly reduced.
In particular, the inconvenience of the status enhancement skill will disappear.
The status enhancement skill was divided into six basic items such as strength, magic power, stamina, five senses, agility, and luck.
To activate this, you had to specify the skill of the specific item you want to improve and activate it.
In other words, if you want to improve the physical condition of all items, you have to activate six skills one by one.
If the subject is Jeong Dae-sik himself, even if it is a bit annoying, it will not be a problem.
However, the skill became a problem as the target designation status was improved and the target became troops.
There are only six members of the squad, but there are only six types of skills, so it is difficult to improve all of them.
So now, I was concentrating on increasing my magic power, but from my experience with Jeong Dae-sik, it was good to improve all conditions evenly. So, if you can activate these six types of status enhancement skills by tying them together, it won’t be as convenient.
In addition, the money wasted to upgrade six skills would be able to save a lot. Since there are six status enhancement skill items, it cost 6 billion won just to upgrade one level.
But what if these skills could be combined into one?
For Jeong Dae-sik, this is something to be greeted with.
Of course, the concept of merging skills itself could not even exist in the 7th level shop.
Even if there was such a method, the effect could be greatly reduced when leveling up.
However, it was clear that the level 7 store would have a higher level of skill than it is now.
It means that there may be skills that have a greater effect just by acquiring them than by upgrading 6 types of status enhancement skills to level 10.
Acquiring the skill itself is only 10 million won, so even if it costs 1 trillion, it was correct to upgrade the shop to level 7 with a higher level of skill.
Because of that, if you don’t want to upgrade the shop at all, it was foolish to invest money in skill upgrades at this stage.
The max level of the skill is a whopping 100, so it takes a lot of money to make the skill of the initial stage to max level.
Above all, there were things that were not yet in the store.
‘There are no MAX skills in the level 6 shop. It’s just saying that you don’t have a perfect skill just by acquiring it.’
Jung Dae-sik thinks that the most financially efficient is a perfect skill that can MAX just by acquiring it.
Once such a skill was acquired, there was no need to invest any more money. Is there any other skill that is more useful to Jeong Dae-sik, who is in trouble?
However, there was no such skill in the shop up to level 6.
There is no guarantee that you will have such a skill if you go to level 7, but anyway, it was something to do with the shop upgrade.
Entropy could grow by upgrading to at least level 7. It is possible to reach the level of an ego weapon that uses skills on its own.
‘The problem is money… Damn it.’
Jeong Dae-sik swallowed the sigh that came out. And he looked into the air and muttered his swear words, “Why do you have to worry about money when you have 100 billion dollars worth of assets, even in cash?”
Then, in order to earn even a million won more, he used the dismantling skill around the monster corpses scattered everywhere.
Since it was level 5, most of the monsters of any size were dealt with, but the 3m long monster had to use the dismantling skill twice.
After using the dismantling, the monster corpse was cleanly divided into each part, and there was nothing to touch.
When I put the organized monster corpse into the compression box, it was finished neatly. The compressed box was at most the size of Post Office No. 1 Box, so it was very convenient.
There was no need to carry it around with the sub-spaced Jeongdaesik. When the work is finished, pour it out into the subspace and that’s it.
Seeing Jeong Dae-sik using the dismantling skill, the soldiers as well as the troops widened their eyes. Monster corpses are a pity, so they were also carefully selecting only the parts that made the most money.
It was difficult because the horse was picking out the monsters, and the processing of the monsters was to remove the flesh and bones. Blood and flesh splattered everywhere, and if the craftsmanship was poor, the value of the by-products would be reduced.
Of course, Jeong Dae-sik, who was a porter, even before acquiring the dismantling skill, his skill in applying by-products was amazing. He used to use his emotional skills to pick just a few things that would make money and treat them like a ghost.
However, it was upgraded to a higher level, and if you just mumble the starter words, all the monster corpses will be sorted out, so everyone looked at Jeong Dae-sik with an envious expression beyond the impression that it was strange.
“Captain’s talents are getting more and more mysterious with each passing day.”
At the blunt God Deok-hwa saying a word, Jae-woo Lee grumbled without notice.
“They say that bears have more talent and people make money…”
Ki Cheol-min slapped Lee Jae-woo’s head.
“Do you think the captain will devour the monsters we catch by himself? Why are we hunting monsters now? Isn’t it all training to improve our skills? Is money important?”
Jaewoo Lee quickly realized his mistake and woke up. Jeong Dae-sik continued to dismantle the monster and said,
“I’ll take care of this, so you guys go and rest. You’ve worked hard today.”
“You have to rest to become stronger than you are now. Go quickly!”
Jeong Dae-sik drove away the sullen troopers. And he looked carefully at the dead monster.
