– Volume 2 Episode 24
After a moment of silence, Jeong Dae-sik twisted the corners of his mouth and said.
“So, do you have anything more to say?”
“Is there anything else I need to warn you?”
“Not yet. What do you mean? Say it straight.”
Entropy gathered mouths in a triangle shape as if breathing a sigh.
“So, you mean that as we continue to upgrade in the future, there may be caveats that we don’t know now?”
Jeong Dae-sik sharpened his teeth.
“It’s very convenient. It sounds to me that you can change the words according to the situation, don’t you?”
Entropy didn’t answer.
It was just floating in the air, whether there was nothing to answer, or whether it was not worth answering.
Jeong Dae-sik shrugged his shoulders while looking at such entropy.
“Well, okay… I didn’t mean to reveal to other people about my abilities in the first place. It’s a smart ability. It’s an unheard of, truly absurd ability. Who would believe that I have such an ability?”
“But if I continue to improve my abilities, this sensible ability may one day be discovered. Even if I do not speak, a person like a government official … might notice this ability. erased?”
“Wait a minute, you mean that I will disappear just by noticing my abilities?”
“That… that’s a bit… Is it okay with God?”
“What’s so great about that god that’s doing the demo? It’s a different dimension? That god has a different dimension and has something to do with it, so he came to an earth infested with other gods? And why did you choose me? What’s the business for me?”
There is nothing free in the world.
It will also be the same for the ability given by the demo blah.
Of course, Democritus does take money in return.
But is it speculation to think that money is not enough to pay for it? If anyone could pay money to buy power, they would be happy.
It seemed that money wasn’t the only thing the demo blah blah was hoping for in return.
Entropy calmly spoke to the questions that Jeong Dae-sik poured out with a rapid-fire cannon.
“Are you only aware that Democritus is a different god, and that his existence should not be revealed?”
Daesik Jeong kept his mouth shut for a moment and looked at entropy.
Entropy is just a carrier of information. Also, knowing only the limited information depending on the level of the store…… In the end, the trouble was with Jeong Dae-sik.
‘What the hell is a guy named Democritus for? What is the purpose of the other gods?’
My head got complicated as the thoughts continued, tail to tail. Jeong Dae-sik shook his head.
‘Let’s quit, these deep thoughts don’t suit me. Right now, you have to think about which raid you want to join.’
Jeong Dae-sik pulled the blanket over the road and lay down right away. And he recalled the various offers he had received during the day.
‘Now that I have received the item, it is unreasonable to accept Han Mi-ran’s offer. However, it is also the case that he joins the raid recommended by Garam Park. No, in the first place… I don’t know anything about those raids, do I? It’s unclear how scouts change their words, and the most important thing to me right now is not simply the conditions.’
The ultimate reason Jung Dae-sik wants to join the raid is money.
When it comes to large-scale drilling, there are a lot of restrictions, and we have to share our income, so it was not difficult.
If you create your own raid, you can earn even more money!
So, he wants to enter the raid to gain experience and knowledge to create a raid.
To do that, he had to choose the style of attack that Jeong Dae-sik was aiming for.
‘yes. Get a scout offer and stop being swayed by conditions. I’m choosing the raid I want to join!’
Once the desired location was decided, they were free to join.
His ability has already reached level 6, and he has three types of abilities, and he can handle almost all positions.
In addition to that, they now have three types of A-class items, so it was a tremendous power.
I was confident in the thought that he would not turn away from me in any raid.
‘great. I’m going to start searching for a raid starting tomorrow. A place where my skills are really needed… A place where I can learn a lot for my future.’
With that decision, Jeong Dae-sik closed his eyes while fiddling with the three items he had acquired.
After acquiring class A items in one day, I was full even if I didn’t eat rice.
‘Heh heh heh… the feeling in my hand is amazing. Isn’t this all a dream?’
Daesik Jeong fell asleep holding the items as if they were a lover.
Chapter 13. Performance of Grade A Items
After acquiring a new item, my body was itching.
He wanted to test the performance of A-class weapons.
‘Isn’t it possible to solo if you have this kind of equipment? I also have strong powers! Shall we go out hunting alone as a performance test of the item?’
Jeong Dae-sik was careful even in the midst of excitement.
It was the first time I was hunting alone to go to an unfamiliar dungeon just looking at the prey, so there was a risk.
Wouldn’t it be a big loss if you get hurt while trusting the item for nothing?
It is difficult to get injured while choosing a raid to join, so Jeong Dae-sik decided to go to the familiar S23D.
He had decided to kill Cerberus, who had always been hunting with the help of others, by himself.
Even if there were a lot of them, it seemed that one would suffice.
Then there was no need to hire a porter.
This is because you can use subspace without worrying about other people’s eyes.
‘Okay, let’s start right now.’
Jeong Dae-sik ate a triangle kimbap in cup noodles at a convenience store and boarded the subway.
When the familiar S23 dungeon appeared, I even felt welcome.
Jeong Dae-sik unpacked the equipment he was carrying in the plaza on the first floor, where all kinds of parties were crowded.
It was a bit embarrassing to wear Talos armor while riding the subway.
There was also a T-shirt incident a while ago.
‘I should buy a car or something.’
Jeong Dae-sik, who grumbled as he didn’t really want to live, wore a rolled up Talos armor set.
Indeed, the fit was superb.
It looked like he wasn’t really wearing anything.
If I were to wear it, would it be about a light robe?
In addition, whether there is an automatic body temperature control function or not, my body, which had been muggy from the heat of the crowd until recently, cooled down.
It was pleasant enough to just be active, and admiration flowed out.
‘If I wear this, I won’t have to worry about the cold or the heat. It can save heating and cooling costs.’
As I was checking the places of the armor while thinking like a handful, I heard gossips around me.
“The armor that that person is wearing, what is the material?”
“Isn’t it supposed to be made of Talos leather?”
“Ah, it’s probably not. Talos leather is very expensive, isn’t it? How do you dress yourself up with that?”
“It’s just Talos leather with a gloss or texture? I’ve only seen it in real life once.”
“Have you ever seen the real Talos?”
“No, I’ve seen one made of Talos leather.”
“Your eyes are broken. Why do people who can wear a full set of Talos leather armor come to a dungeon like this? They’ll go to a higher level.”
The two dealers, who were shy when they saw Jeong Dae-sik, quarreled for a long time before approaching him secretly.
When Jeong Dae-sik turned around, the tall, skinny anchovy asked.
“Is this made from Talos leather?”
At those words, a short-sleeved hoppang, standing next to the anchovy, stabbed him in the side.
“Can’t it be! It’s because it’s not.”
“Hey, I must have remembered. This is Talos leather!”
Stay away from Hopang’s words. Hearing the anchovy’s rebuttal, Jeong Dae-sik said nothing casually.
“It’s Talos leather.”
Hearing Jeong Dae-sik’s answer, Anchovy didn’t flinch, saying that he was right.
I never doubted that even Hopang could do that.
Instead, they opened their mouths at the same time as if they had made a promise.
“Really? Talos leather?”
“Really? So how much does this cost!”
When the two exclaimed in a loud voice, the attention of those around them suddenly caught on.
When they heard the word Talos leather, everyone looked at the full body armor set equipped by Jeong Dae-sik with an expression full of envy.
It was the first time I’d ever seen such a gaze while wearing only a piece of rag that I almost wore at the old-fashioned market every day.
Strictly speaking, I was wearing the equipment, but I felt pretty proud anyway.
Jeong Dae-sik lowered his twitching lips and spoke very chicly.
“Well, can you put a price on it? It’s an A-class item.”
“A-class item? Heh heh…”
“It’s amazing. The color is completely different.”
As the anchovies and hoppang roared, someone from the side tackled them.
“It cannot be an A-grade item just because it is made of Talos leather.”
The beard, which was hairy around his chin, folded his arms and pretended to know.
“I’m saying this because I know a few blacksmiths, and while it’s true that Talos hide is rare, it has excellent durability and resilience and protects against Talos’ enmity … and has no special function other than good looking. In order to become an A-grade item, at least three special properties must be added, so it is unreasonable to call it an A-grade item simply because it is Talos leather.”
Some of the hunters nodded their heads in the middle of the crowd at the beard’s words. Still, Jeong Dae-sik was not upset.
Although I couldn’t be honest with you, this is something from the National Vault! There could be no room for error in the rating.
Jeong Dae-sik shrugged his shoulders lightly.
“The automatic body temperature control function, the defense against fire and ice properties, and the purification power that neutralizes poison, magic, and curses. Isn’t this enough for the performance of an A-class item?”
People said it was amazing and marveled one by one.
“If it’s that level of skill, isn’t it almost a mithril level?”
“Wow, I envy the automatic body temperature control function the most! It tastes like death when you go to a hot or cold place.”
“The purification power is the best. It’s convenient when dealing with skeletons or ghouls. It’s essential when hunting vampires.”
“If that person has that item, he can join the Jeonggong.”
“How the hell did you get it? I don’t think it was bought with money.”
“Huh? Come to think of it, isn’t that person who caught how many Cerberus with a raid pot last time?”
“Ah! That porter came from… a duelist!”
Since it is a dungeon where Jeong Dae-sik has been in and out of several times, the stakes here recognized him. Already, the rumors about him spread as soon as possible, and the hunters’ interest became more intense.
“Did you buy that armor with the money you earned from successfully hunting Cerberus?”
“Is it enough to buy A-class items by catching only a few Cerberus?”
“Anyway, I made a lot of money, so I wore something like that.”
“I guess the rumors about joining the Zodiac raid are true!”
