– Volume 3 Episode 9
The opponent who finally revealed his identity was Team D.
Jeong Dae-sik hung an automatic rifle behind his back, clenched his fists, and beckoned for a good deal.
“Give me your life!”
The close players who ran to the side, led by Daesik Jeong, faced off with the team D team.
Ganghwa was shot at Ki Chul-min and Mok Yeo-gil, and Jeong Dae-sik also faced the D-team tanker who jumped out ahead of him.
To be honest, the opposing team’s tank couldn’t be his opponent.
He was a giant with quite inflated muscles, but one shot from Jeong Dae-sik’s fist hit his face and he passed out.
Jeong Dae-sik knocked him down and immediately attacked the one-dil that was shooting arrows and the buffer that was putting on a buff.
They were weak in combat ability, and as soon as they faced Jeong Dae-sik, they immediately grew tired and raised their hands.
Leaving them behind and looking back, the situation was already over for them.
As much as it was strengthened, it was not possible to play a game with the dealers of Team D.
They captured dealers who had suffered nosebleeds or had been wounded, stunned tanks, non-resistive healers and buffers.
They were busy accusing each other of being wrong.
“I knew this! Attacking other teams is absurd!”
“When did you say that? After agreeing that this is the only way to get the highest income…”
“Are you sure you’re team C? No one knew there was a monster that destroyed the hologram room here?”
“If you had known, would you have attacked Team C? Even if the other team attacked first, is that meaningful?”
Jeong Dae-sik asked a question to them, who were chirping loudly.
“Boa Hani seems to be thinking of increasing the win rate by attacking the other team. Did you attack our team first?”
The tanker, who had barely come to his senses, said with a wink of his broken nose.
“Yes. The team closest to this team attacked.”
“Then it means you haven’t seen the other team.”
“Hmm, okay. Well, it was a raid on our team. It must have been for a test, so I won’t say more. Give me your team’s mark.”
Jeong Dae-sik received the stamp with the letter D and destroyed it.
With this, Team D could not raise profits even by catching monsters.
That didn’t end there.
Jeong Dae-sik meticulously robbed their pockets.
Even if they left their personal weapons alone, they extorted all the supplies they received from the Titan raid.
Then, wiping his hands, he raised his back and said:
“Then Team C, let’s go.”
At that, the D-team tank shouted.
“Wait! Are you going to leave us like this?”
“Then? It’s not like you want us to escort you to the entrance of the dungeon, right?”
“What should I do if I get attacked by monsters while I am tied up here…!”
“Anyway, the Mushrooms in this area are weak, so it won’t happen. Besides, they’re all monitoring the situation from the outside, so should I just let them die?”
Daesik Jeong left them alone and led the team out of the area.
As I was afraid to leave the area, I heard gunshots and screeching from somewhere.
It’s probably not the sound of killing mushrooms or something.
It looked like the other teams were battling each other.
Jeong Dae-sik licked his tongue and said.
“It looks like everyone is going to kill other teams and monopolize the profits of the dungeon.”
Ki Chul-min shrugged at those words.
“Everyone thinks the same, huh?”
“No way. We first avoid monsters and other teams as much as possible and move to the 4th basement floor to find the giant mushroom. First, secure the Yellow Stone, and then think about the next thing.”
Team C moved quickly under the leadership of Daesik Jeong.
Occasionally, striped mushrooms, luminous mushrooms, clown mushrooms, and speckled mushrooms appeared.
So I reached the 4th basement floor and reached the area located in the deepest part.
The scene where the space suddenly expanded and surrounded by luminous spores was a place where boss mobs appeared at first glance.
Jeong Dae-sik said while turning the head lantern’s light brightly.
“Because the name is a boss mob, no matter how much mushrooms it is, it will be quite strong. Don’t be vigilant and focus on defeating the giant mushrooms!”
While everyone was silently affirming, a giant mushroom attracted to the light appeared.
The giant mushroom was literally very large.
It was nearly 5m in length, and the width was as thick as a thousand-year-old beautiful tree.
Moreover, unlike other mushrooms, it had several parts that were considered to be heads.
To explain it simply, should I say that it looks like an oyster mushroom rather than a matsutake mushroom?
It was like having several mushroom heads attached to a thick base.
“Buffer! I might use poison, so put up a shield! I’m the first to attack! Wondil, cover!”
Jeong Dae-sik fired a flaming bomb while wearing reinforcements.
The flames shot out at the giant mushroom, and there was the smell of roasting mushrooms.
I thought it would be weak against fire as it is a mushroom, but what is this?
A giant mushroom with a blackened surface let out a ferocious sound.
Soon, the head of the giant mushroom grew and split into several pieces.
In an instant, the number of giant mushrooms increased to three, and Jeong Dae-shik became frustrated when he realized that he had made a mistake in his judgment.
‘this! Was it a fire attribute monster in the mushroom theme? I should have written an observation!’
Jeong Dae-sik hurriedly activated his skill, albeit belatedly.
As soon as I felt my eyes brighten, various pieces of information appeared on the giant mushroom’s head.
The remaining vitality of the giant mushroom was full.
It was the same with the other fragmented giant mushrooms.
However, it was not to the extent that Jeong Dae-shik could not defeat him.
‘If you have that level of vitality, there is no need to strengthen it. I’ll just collapse with one powerful punch.’
It was then that an idea flashed through my mind.
‘for a moment! Maybe this is the third way?’
Daeshik Jeong saw many cases while working as a porter.
I’ve heard various rumors about all kinds of things happening in the dungeon.
Among them, there were stories that are not usually well known, but the words Hong Man-gi, a co-worker, and Han Cheol-min had a conversation with Han Cheol-min suddenly came to mind.
‘No, I went into the area where the boss mobs came out and I was very nervous, but a small earthen doll came out. I thought this might not be a boss mob, so I attacked to get rid of it right away, and the more it was attacked, the bigger it got. Afterwards, it grew so big that all the party members almost died. But when I finally knocked it down, it was a hit, I mean. At most, I thought it would come out with red stone, but what about blue stone?’
‘I just defeated a dirt golem, but a blue stone came out?’
‘Well, I guess the same boss mob is not the same. In other words, if you make the boss mob stronger and defeat it without knocking it down at once, the stronger the boss mob, the better the magic stone.’
‘Aha, that’s right. That’s amazing!’
‘Because all sorts of strange things happen in the dungeon.’
‘Then I’ll have to grow the dirt golem as strong as possible and defeat it?’
‘The problem is that it is difficult to estimate the right time. If you don’t know the subject and just make a dirt golem strong, you won’t be able to defeat it and it’s easy to get hit. But if you get rid of it quickly, it won’t make any money, and that’s it.’
Jeong Dae-sik, who recalled the conversation, felt enlightened.
‘Yes, that’s right! It could be the same with this giant mushroom! If so, the way to get the highest profit in this dungeon is also… to get a higher-grade Magical Stone, not Yellow Stone!’
Jeong Dae-sik shouted to test his thoughts.
“Don’t attack yet! I have something to check!”
Jeong Dae-sik used his skill while preventing other team members from intervening.
“The Enemy’s Concentration.”
Then he fired one more flaming bomb.
All three of the giant mushrooms that were attracted to Dae-Sik Jeong tried to attack Dae-Sik Jeong.
Then it caught fire and burned black.
As soon as the flames hit, the heads of the giant mushrooms grew again.
Then, this time it was divided into four.
Seeing the scene, the team members screamed out of absurdity.
“Captain, what are you doing now?”
“You’re increasing boss mobs!”
“You have to kill them before they get bigger!”
Ignoring their cries, Jeong Dae-sik looked at their condition by observation once again.
‘Also! Not only the number has increased, but the health of the body has also increased! The more they divide, the stronger they become… Maybe the stronger they get, the better they will spit out magical crystals.’
Jeong Dae-sik told his teammates after making the giant mushroom retreat with a check shot.
“The main body is that guy in the middle with the highest head! First, take that guy out and attack the other guy!”
Ki Cheol-min, unable to understand the words, exclaimed.
“What nonsense! Don’t you know that schizophrenic bastards have to kill the main body first?”
“We have to let the main body split further. By making the main body stronger, we can get good magic crystals. That’s the only way we can earn the most!”
The team members did not fully understand the situation and looked bewildered.
However, Jeong Dae-sik did not give a long explanation and pushed hard.
“Listen to me! Our team must win!”
Seeing Jeong Dae-shik’s conviction, Ki Cheol-min spoke like a spit.
“Damn it, or it’s all your fault!”
Ki Cheol-min ran to destroy the other fragmented giant mushroom.
Driven by that momentum, the other team members also began to move.
Daesik Jeong drew aggro by properly mixing provocation and concentration skills of the enemy.
In the meantime, the other team members removed the main body and took out the divided giant mushrooms one by one.
After waiting for their number to decrease, Jeong Dae-sik once again split the giant mushroom with a flaming bomb.
Once again, as the number of giant mushrooms increased, the vitality of the body increased.
The main body giant mushroom is getting stronger.
‘Good! Growing up!’
