– Volume 2 Episode 18
If Jeong Dae-sik had been a dealer, he wouldn’t have coveted the knuckle.
But right now, isn’t he in a situation where he can play three positions: tank, dealer, and buffer?
There was nothing wrong with having a tanker’s weapon.
In addition, the powerful fist is a very powerful skill.
In front of the strong force of reinforcement, the thorn spider, which was a level 6 monster, flew off its head with a single blow.
If you have this knuckle, your attack power will go up even more.
If you can kill them at once, you don’t have to worry about the aggro scattering.
I thought it was a good weapon in many ways, so Jeong Dae-sik asked the price.
“how much is it?”
The most important thing is the amount.
No matter how good the weapon is, shouldn’t Suzy be right?
I had no intention of buying it if I was told to take a small piece of iron and give it tens of millions of won.
However, it was surprisingly cheap.
“Give me only 500! 5 million won.”
Of course, Jeong Dae-sik did not express such a feeling.
He made a proprietary cry and cried.
“500? Where’s that money? It’s been awhile since I switched to an automatic rifle.”
“Hey, this customer, you’re like this again. Still, you have some budget, so you’re not here to buy a new weapon?”
“If I had a certain budget, would I have just come here to buy knuckles? I would have bought the right gloves! I didn’t ask you to show me the cheapest knuckles because I didn’t have the money.”
“So, this knuckle is well worth the investment of that amount? What did I say? Minimum price and maximum effect! Even if the price is 500, the power will be about 50 million won. So, don’t try to cut more here. . I’m not selling it, I’m not selling it!”
“If you’re not going to sell it, why did you show it? To be honest, did I or someone else buy the knuckle for 500? There aren’t many people looking for a simple hitting weapon like this. Just think that you’ve found the owner, and cut it a little and hand it over. I’m not going to cut much this time either. How about 300?”
“No, this person! He’s talking nonsense…!”
The owner’s face was red and he grabbed the back of his neck and tried to pass.
Judging from the reaction, the 500 seemed like a really good price.
In that case, Jeong Dae-sik decided that he could cut it by 1 million won, and he bargained several times.
In the end, he decided to take over the knuckle for 4 million won without any bonus.
“Uh huh… Anyway, if a customer comes, there’s nothing left! Someone digs up the ground to do business… If that’s the case, then don’t come in the future!”
Seeing the owner grumbling because he was upset, Jeong Dae-sik trembled.
“Still, you only come to this store from time to time. I’ll be looking for it more often in the future, so please take a look.”
“Ah! Then, don’t go anywhere and die. Report your survival and do it on time.”
Although grumbling, the owner carefully packed the knuckles in a special case.
Jeong Dae-sik thanked him and immediately paid 4 million won in cash.
‘Hmm, today’s business ended at 9 million won. I finished it pretty cheaply.’
Jeong Dae-sik, who was happy to spend less than he was prepared for, hummed and left the weapon shop.
And I bought a cup of coffee at the entrance of the shopping mall.
I usually don’t enjoy favorite foods like coffee, but is it a small luxury for a long-awaited break?
Of course, due to Jeong Dae-sik’s personality, he could not even think of coffee from a famous franchise.
Even coffee in takeout coffee shops or fast food restaurants was expensive for him.
If possible, I would have had coffee from a vending machine for several hundred won, but there was no vending machine here.
Instead, I saw a small tray carrying bottled instant coffee, cream, and sugar to make instant coffee.
It was a street stall you could only see in an old market, but the price was cheap.
Only one thousand won!
Jeong Dae-sik paid 1,000 won and was given a large cup of coffee in a coffee shop with ice floating in it, feeling a little luxurious.
Then he moved to the side, sucking the straw.
Then the phone rang.
I answered the call with a bit of annoyance that it was an advertisement call again because it was an unknown number.
But a clear voice came from the other side of the receiver.
-Are you going to be Jeong Dae-sik?
“By the way. Who are you?”
-Hello, Mr. Daesik Jeong. My name is Garam Park, who is working as a professional hunter scout.
‘A hunter-specialized scout?’
The moment I heard those words, I thought that something was coming.
Last time, working with the Zodiac Raid, I definitely felt it.
The abilities he possesses are extraordinary.
Each team leader of the Zodiac Raid is capable of scrambling to recruit.
Naturally, I thought that the offer might come from not only the Zodiac raid, but also other raids.
Still, I thought it would take some time for me to contact you, but it would come so quickly.
Jeong Dae-sik said with a bit of excitement.
“Yes, nice to meet you. But what’s your business?”
-Actually, there are several scouting offers in front of Mr. Jeong Dae-sik.
– It’s a bit difficult to talk on the phone, can we meet at a time that’s okay for you?
“Are you okay right now?”
-of course. Where are you? I will go there.
It is not known where or what proposals were received, but with the idea of meeting him and hearing his story, Dae-sik Jeong made an appointment with him.
It made me drink the coffee I just drank again.
Not long after waiting at a coffee shop not far from the arms store, a scout appeared.
“Hello, Daesik Jeong. It’s an honor to meet you.”
“No. Thank you for coming this far.”
He had the appearance of a typical salesman, dressed in a neat suit and with his hair straight.
With a strong smell of cologne, the man bent 90 degrees and held out his business card.
“As I said, I am a person who is working as a professional hunter scout.”
“Would you like to sit down then? Have you eaten lunch?”
“Yeah, well. It’s fine.”
“If you go to the market, would you like something to eat? I’ll buy it.”
Jeong Dae-sik did not decline when he said he would buy from over there.
I was too tired to drink coffee again, so I simply asked for a sandwich.
The man who had paid the bill by hand and brought a sandwich spoke out a few words.
So Jeong Dae-sik waited for all the sandwiches to be eaten before bringing up the main topic.
“Yosai, rumors about Jeong Dae-sik are circulating here and there.”
Jeong Dae-sik scratched the back of the head with a shy expression.
“Is that so?”
“It’s been a long time since a Duelist appeared, and the industry was buzzing.”
“Among scouts like me.”
Hunter professional scouts are mostly freelancers.
They receive quests from several raids and recommend suitable people, and sometimes they hire people they want.
It is an industry that acts as a bridge between the raid and the hunter, allowing them to set up a bridge at the request of a hunter who wants to join the raid.
“Actually, we were going to contact you sooner than this. But, since Dae-Sik Jeong left for the dungeon raid with the Zodiac Raid, I thought we had already talked to him.”
“It is true that there was an offer to enlist, but I intend to decline the offer.”
“Why is that? If it’s the Zodiac raid, isn’t it one of the largest hole punches in Korea? There must be no reason to refuse.”
“Actually, I didn’t really want to join the raid at first. I’ve changed my mind a bit, but I don’t think the Zodiac raid is a bit out of place. Apart from the conditions, I think it’s too big for me to enter and work.”
Surprisingly, at the words of Dae-sik Jeong, Garam Park peered into the heart of Dae-sik Jeong.
“You are a wise decision. If you join a large group, your autonomy is limited. Unless you rise to the level of a team leader, it is difficult to have any influence. That would be more helpful.”
He drank a sip of coffee for a while, choked his throat, and started talking in earnest.
“In that regard, these two raids I suggest would be perfect.”
Park Ga-ram smiled at Jeong Dae-sik’s question.
“Actually, more raids than this have been saying that they want to recruit Jeong Dae-sik.”
“How many raids have you been contacted by……”
“There are only five places that have come to me.”
Ga-ram Park shrugged at Jeong Dae-sik in surprise.
“Perhaps almost all raids that are currently recruiting members are targeting Jeong Dae-sik.”
When Garam Park said that, I didn’t really feel it.
Jeong Dae-sik was startled, unable to speak, and only blinked his eyes.
Not so long ago, he was just a porter, traveling from place to place.
Even at that time, it was difficult to get a job in the raid, so the day he happened to follow Jeonggong was a huge hit.
But in such a hole, everyone wants themselves?
On the other hand, it was unbelievable that I realized once again how great my abilities were.
A duelist with two abilities…
In fact, he had three abilities at the same time, so it had to be viewed as a triple list.
It’s an unprecedented ability.
Of course, everyone deserved to be coveted.
‘Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh this out!’
Jeong Dae-sik smiled softly in the exhilarating pleasure.
However, on the outside, the hour hand was dropped and he continued talking.
“But why do you recommend only two raids out of the dogs?”
“After all, there is only one Daesik Jeong, so you can’t join all the raids. Shouldn’t you pick and enter the one that suits you the most? Matching them well is also my job. I’m talking about it with an eye on it.”
Garam Park spoke confidently and mentioned two raids.
“The raids I would recommend are Dark Flame Raid and Celestial Dragon Raid.”
“Dark Flame Raid and Celestial Dragon Raid? Hmm… I think I’ve heard of Celestial Dragon Raid, but I’ve never heard of Dark Flame Raid.”
“Both of these locations are small compared to Zodiac Raid. Especially in the case of Dark Flame, the branch office has not been moved to Seoul in a while. Originally, the headquarters was located in Gyeonggi, but as the size of the raid grew, a new office building was recently built. It’s under construction. The office building is right next door, would you like to go and see it?”
“Anyway, Dark Flame has only been in existence for about three years, but it’s grown tremendously. Would you believe it if there wasn’t a single operator who escaped from it in the past three years?”
“The crew seems to be very close.”
“Haha, where in the hunter world is a place where you can simply survive through friendship? That means that the leadership of the engineering commander, transparency in raid operation, and the skills of the engineering team are the basis. In fact, the number of engineering members in Dark Flame is steadily increasing. It has increased, and all of them have renewed their contracts.”
“Here’s the material I brought, take a look.”
