“A poison zone?”
Jang Yul nodded and answered Yang Joo-hyuk’s question.
“It’s that difficult?”
“Yes, so much that we don’t have to worry about most players.”
The poisonous zone was literally a place full of poison. It could be said to be similar to the lava field in Zone 4, but the difficulty was entirely different.
In the case of the lava zone, one only needed to worry about the burn debuff, but in the case of poisonous zones, one had to prepare for a number of abnormalities such as slow, burns, freezing, curses, bleeding, and paralysis.
“Won’t that user pass through easily?”
“Who do you mean?”
Jang Yul asked Yang Joo-hyuk. Who should easily pass through zone 6, where even the elites of large guilds couldn’t?
“I mean Soo-hyuk”
Jang Yul sighed.
“I see. This could be bad.”
This was Soo-hyuk, who received the title of “The Master of Poison”, which is a special even in the Tower of Poison.
Although the poison in zone 6 was strong, it was not enough to scratch Soo-hyuk’s resistance with the title of “The Master of Poison” and his wisdom.
It was then.
Yang Joo-hyuk frowned at a sudden thought.
Jang Yul looked at Yang Joo-hyuk who had a puzzled expression. Yang Joo-hyuk continued with a frowned look.
“’Reader’ Guild’s Master. Didn’t you say he was friends with Soo-hyuk?”
Jang Yul was surprised by the words of Yang Joo-hyuk.
“How many zones has the ‘Reader’ Guild cleared? Check it.”
Yang Joo-hyuk said to Jang Yul, who was surprised. Jang Yul quickly hit the keyboard. Then he opened his mouth with a sigh of relief.
“Failed in zone 4.”
Yang Joo-hyuk thought having listened to Jang Yul’s answer.
‘Because the relationship between the guilds is not good, they will have no information on zone 6. But what if they get the information and went with Soo-hyuk?’
Yang Joo-hyuk once again asked Jang-yul, frowning on his brow.
“What do you think would happen if they went together?”
“If they go together?”
Jang Yul thought for a moment and then began to answer.
“I don’t think they will have it easy? But he opened the Gate of Healing as his third gate. With his wisdom and Yarion’s Wrath it will certainly be nothing to scoff at….”
Yang Joo-hyuk mumbled the end of his sentence. And Jang Yul continued.
“…..they could do it.”
Hard Rock Warp Gate.
“Where do you want to go?”
“The capital of the Youth kingdom.”
“It’s 50 gold.”
Soo-hyuk handed 50 gold to the wizard and climbed onto the magic circle. And soon Soo-hyuk was able to reach Surue, the capital of the Youth Kingdom. Soo-hyuk had to use Surue’s warp gate again.
Because it was the weekend and the capital, there were many users who wanted to use the Warp Gate. Soo-hyuk waited in line for his turn.
“Where do you want to go?”
“I’m going to Rekaton.”
“It’s 15 gold.”
It was Soo-hyuk’s turn soon, and Soo-hyuk took 15 gold from his inventory, handed it to the wizard, and went up to the magic circle. Soo-hyuk was able to reach his final destination Rekaton.
-Soo-hyuk: Where are you?
Soo-hyuk arrived at Rekaton and left the warp gate and whispered to Yeon-jeung.
And soon after Soo-hyuk was able to hear a familiar voice.
Soo-hyuk saw where the voice came from. There, Yeon-jeung was waving. Soo-hyuk approached Yeon-jeung.
“Hello. Nice to meet you. My name is Lilith.”
Next to Yeon-jeung, there was Lilith who was his assistant in the ‘Reader’ Guild. She would also be a member of the dungeon exploration team today.
“Hello. I’m Soo-hyuk.”
Soo-hyuk greeted Lilith shaking her hand.
After finishing the greetings, Yeon-jeung said.
“First is having you join our guild.”
It was true, he had delayed joining the guild for too long.
Soo-hyuk nodded, and Yeon-jeung began to move his finger in the air. And soon after, a window appeared in front of Soo-hyuk.
[Would you like to join the guild ‘Reader’?]
It was the guild registration window.
[You have joined the guild ‘Reader’.]
[The guild window is activated.]
Upon clicking OK, a message appeared, and Soo-hyuk raised his head and looked up. The guild mark of the guild ‘Reader’ was seen.
“Hah, you finally signed up.”
Yeon-jeung muttered, looking at the guild mark above Soo-hyuk’s head. Then he smiled and said to Soo-hyuk.
“Now. Let’s go!”
After talking to Soo-hyuk and then to Lilith, Yeon-jeung took the lead, and Soo-hyuk followed Yeon-jeung.
“Then is it publicly known now?”
“Well, not completely, only a few large guilds know of it.”
Yeon-jeung answered Soo-hyuk’s question. When he answered, he frowned and muttered at what came to mind.
“It is clear that the motherfuckers of the ‘Dokgo’ Guild followed me! Otherwise, they couldn’t have known the entrance.”
The entrance to ‘Ryan’s Dungeon’ was hidden. It was in a fairly deep place. But one day, the ‘Dokgo’ guild appeared. They didn’t find it by accident.
Judging by ‘Dokgo’ guild’s fast reaction, Yeon-jeung was convinced that they have been following him.
It was then.
“Red Snake ahead.”
At Lilith’s words, Soo-hyuk and Yeon-jeung stopped talking. And looked ahead.
Throok… … Throok… … .
A giant red snake was approaching.
Yeon-jeung cast a buff skill ‘Fighting’ and blocked the Red Snake’s front. Was it because he blocked the front or was it because Yeon-jeung cast an eye-catching “Fighting”? Red Snake directly rushed Yeon-jeung and opened a mouth as large as his body.
Of course, Yeon-jeung wouldn’t stand idly by and be attacked by the Red Snake. It was Yeon-jeung, who has already captured numerous red snakes and earned the title “Red Snake Hunter”.
Yeon-jeung sidestepped and struck the Red Snake’s head with the shield he was holding.
When the shield hit, a roar broke out.
And Red Snake spat out a bizarre scream that couldn’t be thought of as the sound of a snake.
Lilith fired a Lightning Sphere towards the screaming Red Snake.
Red Snake screamed once again in the Lightning Sphere.
And then Yeon-jeung’s attack.
Soo-hyuk thought while watching Yeon-jeung and Lilith constantly attacking the Red Snake.
‘Their rhythm is really well.’
Was it because they had hunted together from the beginning of the opening?
Yeon-jeung and Lilith’s rhythm matched well together.
‘There is no need to intervene.’
He had to watch silently. It seemed like it would be detrimental if he tried to interrupt.
Soon several attacks followed, and Red Snake fell with a sad cry. Yeon-jeung returned to Soo-hyuk’s side with his shield hung over his neck. Then, he stepped back and explained.
“The red snake, one of the basic monsters in this area, as you can see from its skin it’s a fire type monster. Levels are between 400 and 410. Compared to the hunting time, the experience is also low, so it is the main game for tanks or semi-tanks active in this area. From now on, we will continue to encounter them. It’s their territory.”
Soo-hyuk nodded as if he understood Yeon-jeung’s explanation.
And while nodding, Lilith called Yeon-jeung. Yeon-jeung stepped forward with the shield on his back at Lilith’s call. A red snake was approaching from the front.
Soo-hyuk also only watched this time. Soon after, the Red Snake died. Soo-hyuk was able to reach the destination while watching Yeon-jeung and Lilith’s red snake hunting.
Yeon-jeung said, pointing forward. Soo-hyuk looked ahead. At the place where Soo-hyuk’s gaze stopped, there was a cave leading to the dungeon.
There were users wearing varying guild marks in front of the cave. These were users sent by several large guilds who knew the dungeon ‘Ryan’s Dungeon’ to scout the situation.
“I should have cleared it quickly before became known.”
Yeon-jeung muttered while looking at the users guarding the cave. Did they hear Yeon-jeung’s murmur?
One of the many standing in front of the cave approached.
“Did you come to die again?”
And in the words of the man that followed, Soo-hyuk was able to see that the man knew Yeon-jeung, but they didn’t have a good relationship.
“Shut up and go away.”
Yeon-jeung said to the man, frowning.
“Huh huh, what are you worrying about?”
The man laughed and said.
“Do you want to die again?”
Yeon-jeung replied to such a man with a fierce atmosphere.
The man frowned at Yeon-jeung’s words, then went back silently. So the man went back and Yeon-jeung muttered in a small voice.
“Dokgo guild goons really… …
Soo-hyuk heard Yeon-jeung’s murmur and saw the man’s guild mark returning to the entrance.
‘That’s the Dokgo guild mark.’
Soo-hyuk, who memorized the Dokgo Guild’s mark, continued to step into the cave with Yeon-jeung and Lilith.
“Now the door will come out soon. There it starts.”
Yeon-jeung came into the cave and said, walking along the road. And after a while Soo-hyuk was able to find a huge gate as Yeon-jeung said.
“Wait a minute.”
After arriving at the door, Yeon-jeung pulled the ring in the middle of the door.
The rings followed Yeon-jeung’s hand.
Soon, when the ring was 1m away from the door, Yeon-jeung released the ring. Then ring quickly returned to its original position.
The moment the ring returned to its original position.
The door opened and a message appeared.
[Dungeon ‘Ryan’s Dungeon’ gate opened.]
[A maximum of 3 people can enter.]
[Dungeon ‘Ryan’s Dungeon’ consists of 10 zones and is cleared if you pass 10 tests.]
[Whenever you pass the exam in each area, you can surrender midway, and if you give up midway, you cannot re-enter for one week.]
After seeing the message, Soo-hyuk nodded at Yeon-jeung’s words and approached the door. Then they passed the door and entered the dungeon ‘Ryan’s Dungeon’.
-Surama Sword: Yes, Guildmaster. They just went in.
-Sunbyul: Did you remember his face well?
-Surama sword: Yes. The face of the user who came with Yeon-jeung and Lilith was properly checked.
-Surama Sword: By the way, did he join the ‘Reader’ Guild?
-Sunbyul: He signed up for the ‘Reader’s Guild?
-Surama sword: Yes.
-Sunbyul: I see. Return immediately upon arrival in Group 3.
-Surama Sword: Understood.
Surama Sword ended the whisper with ‘Dokgo’ guild’s master Sunbyul. Having finished whispering with Sunbyul, Surama sword thought while looking at the chat with Sunbyul.
‘He is a great man.’
No matter how much he look at, Sunbyul’s intelligence network was amazing.
‘How did he know that Yeon-jeung was coming?’
He was informed in advance that Yeon-jeung was coming.
‘The same is true about finding this dungeon.’
In addition, the dungeon ‘Ryan’s Dungeon’ was also discovered by Sunbyul. He wondered where the hell was getting this information.
‘Who is the informant?’
Specifically, he was curious about the source.
“Surama Sword! We are here!”
Surama Sword, who was lost in thought, was woken up and confirmed the owner of the voice.
The 3rd group’s leader Haneul and his group were approaching.
