To just walk in and close the holes in that place? It made no sense.
-Sunbyul: You sure are funny. Telling such a joke.
Sunbyul whispered to Lilith with a cold expression.
-Lilith: I’m not kidding. Really. He had related items. Items that neutralized the poison.
“Items that neutralize poison? Where is such an item… …”
The answer arrived again from Lilith, and Sunbyul stopped muttering at an unexpected thought.
“No way, Yarion’s Wrath?”
The legendary weapon ‘Yarion’s Wrath’ was said to have a hidden option. It was plausible enough.
“… … this, this.”
“In a bit…”
However, after a moment, Sunbyul immediately smiled.
“Aren’t they clearing the dungeon?”
It is good to know information about Yarion’s Wrath. But it wasn’t Yarion’s Wrath that mattered right now.
The important thing was that the dungeon might be cleared.
“I can’t hinder them….”
Nobody can enter ‘Ryan’s Dungeon’ if there are already people inside. If anyone were going to interfere, they only had a chance to do so before entering.
“They mustn’t clear it…”
Looking at the current situation, the possibility of clearing has increased considerably.
“Should I tell her to sabotage it?”
It’s not that there is no way at all. There was a Lilith. He had a option with Lilith. However, it was too dangerous.
“No, I can’t lose a high-level source for a single dungeon.”
Lilith, the Vice-Guildmaster of the ‘Reader’ guild, was a very good source of information.
If she interfered and it went wrong, she might lose her position as Vice-Guildmaster and she might no longer be able to obtain secret information.
In an embarrassing situation where he couldn’t do anything, Sunbyul thought painfully.
#T/N: hahaa, Suffer!!
‘I guess they’re going to pass zone 8. I hope they fail in Zone 9 or 10.’
Yeon-jeung thought while holding his shield to block the thorns.
‘I obviously thought it was going to be difficult…”
‘Ryan’s Dungeon’ was a very difficult place. This is what he learned through his experiences.
‘Was it always so easy?’
But not now. It was so easy. It was just like going around a low-level dungeon.
‘Is it because of Soo-hyuk?’
Yeon-jeung blocked a thorn and turned his head to see Soo-hyuk. Soo-hyuk made it look like the dungeon was so easy.
Only one person was changed, but the difficulty changed vastly.
Even though one person has changed, can the difficulty be so easy?
‘I know, I have a good friend.’
It was then.
Oh uh uh.
[You have defeated all monsters.]
[You have passed the test in area 9]
[The door to zone 10 opened.]
Soo-hyuk and Lilith’s magic killed the last thorn-shooting monster.
“This is the last test!”
Yeon-jeung shouted while looking at the messages. They passed the test of Zone 9. All that was left was the test in Zone 10.
“Okay, it’s already the last test. We’re done sooner than I thought.”
Soo-hyuk said to Yeon-jeung’s shout. The current time was 5pm. Even including the 40 minutes of lunch break, it was a exhilarating speed.
Lilith interrupted Soo-hyuk’s and Yeon-jeung’s conversation.
At Lilith’s words, Soo-hyuk and Yeon-jeung headed for Zone 10.
[You have entered Zone 10.]
[The test begins.]
[Test of Zone 10: Extermination]
[Kill all monsters.]
As soon as they entered Zone 10, a message appeared. Like the 9th area, the test of the last 10th zone was also monster extermination.
Soo-hyuk looked ahead to see what kind of monster it was.
Soo-hyuk, looking ahead, tilted his head.
There were countless statues in front of them. It was filled with statues made of various materials, such as statues made of stone, statues made of iron, and statues made of soil.
“Aren’t these gargoyles?”
Yeon-jeung, who was looking at the statue, muttered.
“It’s bag if they are. They’re magic resistance is really high.”
Lilith responded to Yeon-jeung’s murmur. The current party was composed of 1 warrior and 2 magicians, with a high ratio of magic attack power.
However, the gargoyle was a monster with high magic defense. What if they had to deal with gargoyles? It was a very difficult situation.
“If it is a steel gargoyle, their physical defense would be enormous.”
The problem was, they could see the steel statues everywhere.
In the case of steel gargoyles, not only magical defense but also physical defense is high.
It was then.
The statues began to move. “It’s starting.”
“They’re waking up.”
It was the moment when it became clear that the monster to be defeated was a gargoyle.
Soo-hyuk called Lilith.
“Can you come here for a while?”
Lilith approached Soo-hyuk’s with a puzzled look upon his call.
“… … What are you doing?”
Yeon-jeung asked Soo-hyuk with a puzzled expression. What did he call Lilith to do?
“We have to kill them.”
Soo-hyuk responded to Yeon-jeung and told Lilith.
“I am going to cast fire spells in the right area based on the center line. Please use fire magic and electric magic there.”
Upon hearing Lilith’s answer, Soo-hyuk immediately cast a spell.
“Fire Wall, Fire Field, Fire Storm, Fire.”
As he said, on the right side was fire magic.
“Poison Storm, Poison Pool, Poison Spear, Poison Fog.”
On the left, poison magic was fired.
“Giga Lightning, Fire Field, Fire Wall… …
After Soo-hyuk’s magical rampage was over and the exact range was determined, Lilith also began to fire magic.
Those who had just woke up and tried to move, screamed. They were gargoyles with high magic defense, but high magic defense did not mean they did not receive damage.
Gargoyles spitting out a shriek of pain flew to the sky to escape from the magical bombardment and flew to the place where Soo-hyuk, Yeon-jeung, and Lilith were located.
Of course, even in that short time, many gargoyles were killed by the spells, and the number of gargoyles flying was not very large.
“There are 10 steel gargoyles!”
Exclaimed Lilith. The 10 surviving steel gargoyles with high magic defense, high physical defense, and high health were the only ones left.
Soo-hyuk sang Yeon-jeung.
Even if not, Yeon-jeung, who was on standby, held a shield and blocked in front of Soo-hyuk and Lilith.
The steel gargoyle, running at the forefront, swung its claws. Yeon-jeung struck the gargoyle’s claws with his shield.
When the shield blocked the attack, the gargoyle climbed back into the sky.
“Oh, this is serious.”
Yeon-jeung held up against the impact of the gargoyle’s claws.
In the meantime, Soo-hyuk and Lilith casted spells on the steel gargoyle ascending into the sky.
Then the magic burst, and the steel gargoyle that went up to the sky fell with a roar. So Yeon-jeung defended, Soo-hyuk and Lilith attacked, and began to reduce the number of steel gargoyles one by one. “Poison Spear!”
Soon the last steel gargoyle began to fall to the ground with a scream.
The moment when the steel gargoyle fell to the ground and shattered.
[You have defeated all monsters.]
[You have passed the test in zone 10.]
[You have cleared ‘Ryan’s Dungeon’.]
[The treasure room has been unlocked.]
A message appeared and the door on the other side began to open.
Yeon-jeung and Lilith said nothing. They were looking at the messages about the treasure room.
‘We did it so easily? Soo-hyuk is really good.’
‘He’s much better than I thought.’
Neither were thinking about rewards. They were thinking about Soo-hyuk. In particular, Lilith thought a lot about Soo-hyuk.
‘How high is his level?’
Only the guild master can check the level of guild members through the guild window. Lilith, the Vice-Guildmaster, can only see the character name, like other guild members.
‘This party is also set to protect private information.’
In addition, even though they were in a party, the level was not visible because it was made private. All she could see was the character name.
In other words, she didn’t know his level. She couldn’t even see his health or mana levels.
“When the spell duration is over, let’s go.”
Soo-hyuk, who received the attention of Yeon-jeung and Lilith, said.
Currently, it was impossible to pass through the front because of the sustained AOE magic such as poison storm and fire storm used by Soo-hyuk.
Soon all the spells vanished. Then Soo-hyuk, Yeon-jeung, and Lilith stepped forward and approached the door to the treasure room.
[A total of 3 boxes are prepared.]
[You can select one box each.]
[Duplicate selection is not possible.]
As they passed the reward door and moved to the treasure room, a message appeared.
“Hoh, so this is why the maximum number was 3 people?”
“I think so.”
After seeing the message, Soo-hyuk, Yeon-jeung and Lilith said in turn. Then they headed straight to the three boxes in the distance.
Heading to the box, Soo-hyuk thought.
‘It feels familiar.’
The current situation was quite familiar.
‘Was it because of the secret cave?’
It was apparently due to the secret cave of Celta.
“The boxes are very big.”
“I know, right. But the sizes of the boxes are all different?”
After arriving in front of the box, Yeon-jeung and Lilith had a conversation.
“uh? So, they’re all different. What difference does it make?”
“The one on the left is the smallest.”
“The one on the right is the largest.” Listening to their conversation, Soo-hyuk said nothing.
‘Isn’t this completely similar? Is this the secret dungeon’s reward?’
The chests were no different from the ones of Celta’s secret cave, both in form and in size.
Are all the rewards of the hidden dungeons like this?
‘They might be similar, but the reaction of the two is…’
However, judging from the reaction of Yeon-jeung and Lilith, it seemed that not all the dungeon’s rewards were like this.
“What should I do? There is only one box I can choose, but the sizes are all different…”
Yeon-jeung said. If the size of the box was the same, there was a little difference. They all wanted the boxes, but they had to decide.
“To be honest, I want the middle box.”
The first to answer was Lilith.
“Honestly, I’ll just go with the middle…. Haha.”
Lilith finished talking with an awkward smile.
Upon hearing Lilith’s answer, Yeon-jeung asked Soo-hyuk.
Soo-hyuk looked at the left box, mumbling at Yeon-jeung’s question.
‘What if the reward is the same as the secret cave?’
What if the rewards were the same as in Kelta’s Secret Cave?
The left chest there would be a weapon chest. Of course it wasn’t safe as the rewards may vary.
“I’m not sure.”
Soo-hyuk replied by looking at Yeon-jeung again.
Soo-hyuk, who answered, asked Yeon-jeung.
“I want the biggest box.”
Soo-hyuk was contemplating which box to choose and was able to decide after Yeon-jeung’s choice.
“Then it’s decided. I’ll take the left box.”
Even if not, it was Soo-hyuk, whose gut went with the left box.
Yeon-jeung wanted the right side and Lilith wanted the one in the middle, so it was perfect.
“Really? No, you don’t concede! It was easy this time thanks to you. If you want the other box…”
“No, I was thinking of the left box too.”
Yeon-jeung said excitedly. However, Soo-hyuk cut off Yeon-jeung’s words with a smile.
“You won’t regret it?”
Soo-hyuk nodded at Yeon-jeung’s words.
“Okay, then the boxes have been decided. The rewards go to the chooser.”
At Yeon-jeung’s words, Soo-hyuk and Lilith nodded.
After seeing the two’s nod, Yeon-jeung approached the box on the right, and Lilith approached the box in the middle. Soo-hyuk also approached the left box and opened the box.
