-1 Volume 5
Jeong Dae-sik was a little nervous when he entered the Awakened Management Office.
He was slightly worried that his awakening might not be true.
The god he met in the space of God said strange words that he had never heard of, and his innate abilities were also different from those of ordinary awakening.
However, the awakening verification process was much simpler than expected.
All you had to do was place your hand on the bead-like object.
Then, the device detected the magic power and determined whether it was awakened or not.
The verification was completed in less than a second, and Dae-Sik Jeong completed the registration by filling out a few simple documents.
After registering the Awakened, I moved to another floor and was issued a Hunter license.
A Hunter license is a kind of dungeon pass, and unlike Awakened registration, it is not compulsory.
Only the person who entered the dungeon to catch the monster would need to be issued.
Jeong Dae-sik left the Awakened Management Office with his Hunter license, which looked like a resident registration card, in his wallet.
Then we headed straight to the nearby arms store.
The arms store that encroached on a street in Jongno was quieter than expected.
It seemed quiet compared to other nearby shopping malls because it was only carried by the Awakened.
As I was walking among the shopping malls, my attention seemed to be focused.
The shopkeepers all folded their arms and looked at Jeong Dae-sik and said with their eyes.
‘I’m a beginner.’
‘You’re a beginner.’
‘I registered today.’
They all looked like they were getting anxious because they couldn’t eat each other on their backs because of their mood.
So Jeong Dae-sik consistently ignored the solicitation behavior of the store owners and walked.
“What are you looking for?”
“Here’s a good weapon for dealers to use!”
“I’ll make it cheap, so take a look!”
“It doesn’t matter if we go further.”
After circling around the arms store like that, he shuddered back the way he had come, and then Jung Dae-sik entered the most conspicuous shopping district.
It was a place where guns were displayed all at once.
As Jeong Dae-sik looked at the shelves with his eyes crooked, an elderly-looking owner came out and talked to him.
“Are you looking for something?”
“…are you looking for a one-ditch weapon?”
He looked at Jeong Dae-shik from head to toe and said.
“Usually, when hunting for the first time, I use this model a lot. The performance is good, and the price is cheap.”
The owner took some weapons off the shelf and laid them out.
He showed and explained two types of pistols, one automatic rifle and one long gun.
“Well, as you know, these are all magic guns, so you don’t need a separate bullet. There are models with special bullets, but they are expensive, and you don’t need to use those models. Here’s the most basic thing.”
Looking at them, the familiar shapes seemed to be the models Jung Dae-sik recognized on the Internet.
“The type of pistol is small, light, and consumes less magical power, so it’s good to use it. Instead, there is a feeling that it lacks power, but it will catch slimes and marmots with ease.”
“What sells the best?”
“It’s an automatic rifle, apparently. It has the disadvantage of consuming mana in an instant, but there is no weapon like this for Wondil.”
“If the one-deal wiggles a bit and shoots the pistol, it doesn’t really make a difference. You have to grind it to this extent, so I think that one-deal is doing its best. To be honest, it’s perfect to give the impression that if the one-deal makes a mistake, it’ll be picked up, right? So I’m going to be solo Or an automatic rifle is better.”
“A long gun?”
“This is the best in terms of power, but I can’t shoot a few shots. If you’re a beginner, you’ll run out of magic power if you’re a beginner.”
“Isn’t this more like an automatic rifle?”
“In terms of the number of times it can be shot, it is. Besides, the price is expensive.”
“Are long guns very expensive?”
“It’s double the price of an automatic rifle. It’s 40 million won if you buy the most basic option.”
“Then the price of an automatic rifle…”
“The base is 2,000, depending on the option, a little more. I usually buy a pistol as a secondary weapon for an automatic rifle. The price of pistols varies widely. The cheapest starts at 300.”
Jeong Dae-sik was worried.
I almost made up my mind to buy an automatic rifle, so I had that in mind, but I was conflicted about whether or not to buy a pistol.
The price was cheap, so I felt like I was being ripped off.
However, the amount of mana was not enough, but I wanted to do something after buying a bunch of weapons.
After that, I wanted to buy one and buy it properly, so I decided to buy a better automatic rifle.
“Then what options do you have for automatic rifles?”
“Usually, it’s about 500 per option. How much do you think your budget is?”
Jeong Dae-sik emphasized.
“No matter how much you use, up to 3,000. More than that is unreasonable.”
Then the owner shrugged.
“Then it would be perfect with one economizer and one amplifier attached to the 2,000-price base. I’ll do it for 3,000 without enuri.”
Hearing what the owner was saying, Jeong Dae-sik started to bargain.
“Three thousand is my entire fortune. After I use it all, I don’t have a penny of 10 won. But I can’t afford it?”
“Originally, all weapon prices are reconnaissance systems, so I cut them down as I like and I can’t do that. Instead, I’ll bring you some things. Can I put in five hemostatic potions?”
“I will pay in cash at once. So, please withdraw 1 million won without any extras. That way, I won’t be buying some equipment. After spending 30 million won, a dungeon shop is opened.”
“I don’t know what this person said. You can’t say no. I’ll give you an extra scroll instead.”
Jeong Dae-sik wrestled with the owner for a long time.
As a result of talking about dying for almost 30 minutes.
Five hemostasis potions and five detox potions.
In addition, I received three explosive scrolls, a backpack and an additional knife.
The owner took care of it and kicked his tongue.
“I just didn’t pick up a knife, but I’m a blade robber. I’m not the kind of person who usually rips like this.”
“You think you’re doing a good job. You’ll use it often.”
“It must be! I brought you so much. Now, here’s my business card. If you need anything, please contact me. You can order in advance.”
Jeong Dae-sik took the business card he was handing out.
In fact, it was true that he over-served.
Most of them were up to the extent of scrolling in potions.
It seemed that he rarely even received a knife.
‘This is all thanks to good bargaining.’
Jeong Dae-sik knew that nego was not possible in the first place.
If that had been the case, I would not have disclosed that the funds were 30 million won.
Then, starting at 2,500, the price would have been reduced, but since it is a reconnaissance system, I spoke in the direction of receiving as much bonus as possible, and that worked.
Who is Daesik Jeong?
The so-called master of bargaining!
He had never bought anything at full price in his life.
It was Jeong Dae-sik who cut prices even in department stores.
To others, it may seem absurd, but that was the way he lived without an orphan.
Anyway, I received more bonus than I thought, so Jeong Dae-sik expressed his sincere gratitude.
And as promised, he immediately transferred 30 million won to his account.
‘Half of the 6,000 I had deposited with this was blown away.’
When I saw the reduced amount, I felt a little upset, but it was unavoidable.
‘You should think of it as an investment, an investment.’
Jeong Dae-sik took a deep breath to soothe his aching heart and left the weapon shop.
Then, before leaving the arms market, we stopped at a shooting range where we could try out the weapons we had purchased.
There was a need to test the newly purchased weapon.
‘I’ve never shot a magic gun before, so I’ll have to practice a bit before going into action.’
Jeong Dae-sik paid an hourly fee and stood on the line facing the target.
Then he took out the gun he had bought, aimed it at the target and pulled the trigger.
Then I felt a rush of magic from my palm, and something fired from the muzzle.
When he saw that it hit the target, Dae-sik Jeong admired it.
‘This is a magic bullet!’
Normal weapons had little effect on the monsters in the dungeon.
Since only weapons injected with magic were effective, there were often no bullets in such guns.
Instead of using bullets, it’s loaded with magic power.
‘There’s no problem in shooting a gun by injecting magic power, but it’s because the weapon is cheap. The accuracy is not good, and the power is not good.’
Accuracy wasn’t really that important.
When aggro management becomes important, accuracy will have an impact, but it didn’t matter because we had the sledgehammer in mind.
Most of the monsters were large, so it was okay to miss a bit.
The problem is attack power.
The attack power was displayed above the target because it was a place where weapon performance could be tested.
‘The attack power of the magic bullet I shot was only 200… Is it because my magic power is only 10?’
Even after paying an additional 5 million won to attach an amplifier, it was 200.
I thought it was because of the low mana level, and Jeong Dae-sik gave his taste buds.
‘From now on, no matter what weapon you use, your attack power will be poor. I don’t know, but the magic will wear out quickly. In order to use the weapon properly, I think I need to have a high mana first.’
Turning his head once, he thought of a store.
‘I can buy stat points with money… The problem is that it’s very expensive.’
Jeong Dae-sik had a dry taste in his mouth.
Then, just in case, I called entropy.
Seeing the speech bubble that appeared in front of him, he asked a question.
“Well, you said that if you pay an additional amount, the store will be upgraded, right?
“Can I buy my abilities?”
“Magic power? How much does it cost to raise 1 point?”
“Okay, his extra money… How much is that?”
Maybe it’s because I just bought a 30 million won weapon.
One million won felt like a lot of money.
“Is it worth 1 million won? Okay, try upgrading first.”
A window appeared in front of me, and the shop display changed.
The word Lv1 appeared next to the shop, and his balance disappeared by 1 million won.
“Open the stats category. Go to magic.”
The screen changed, the magic tab opened, and the ability purchase window was opened.
Jeong Dae-sik glanced at it quickly with his eyes.
‘Look, you can purchase 1 point of magic… You can only buy 1 point. Upgrading is not a big deal.’
The price of 1 point of magic power was 1 million won.
‘Yeah, if it’s 1 million won…’
Jeong Dae-sik boldly purchased 1 point of magic power.
With this, Jeong Dae-sik’s magic power level became 11.
But what is this?
‘Huh? What, the price has gone up?’
As soon as the balance disappeared by 1 million won and the level of magic increased, the price of 1 point of magic in the shop window changed.
This time it was 200,000 won.
‘The more points you buy, the more expensive it gets!’
