Some time later.
Lilith had arrived.
At Yeon-jeung’s words, Lilith opened the door and entered.
“What did you want to see me for?”
Lilith came into the room and naturally sat down on the sofa and asked Yeon-jeung.
Yeon-jeung stood up without answering Lilith’s question. Then he sat down opposite to Lilith and opened his mouth.
Lilith asked with a puzzled expression when Yeon-jeung called out to her instead of answering the question.
“Do you have anything to say to me?”
And Yeon-jeung asked Lilith in a serious tone.
Lilith stayed silent in response to Yeon-jeung’s question. She was just looking at Yeon-jeung with an slightly more confused expression.
Yeon-jeung also looked at Lilith without saying anything.
Lilith thought of Yeon-jeung’s eyes and atmosphere.
‘I feel that he’s angry at me….’
Lilith could see that Yeon-jeung was angry.
But she couldn’t figure out why. What made Yeon-jeung angry?
“Why did you do that?…”
“Not with any other guild, but especially the Dokgo guild?”
It was then.
At Yeon-jeung’s words, Lilith was startled.
“Well, what .. happened….”
Surprised, Lilith stuttered. And I looked at Yeon-jeung with an anxious look.
At Lilith’s reaction, Yeon-jeung sighed deeply. He hoped it was a coincidence that the Dokgo guild appeared.
It was not a coincidence that the Dokgo guild appeared.
“We’re we not good enough?”
Sun’n’stars opened his friend window.
And he looked at his friend window and tilted his head.
‘Why is he logged out?’
This was because Commander was not online.
‘It’s not even lunchtime.’
Sunbyul checked the time. It wasn’t even lunchtime.
What could have happened?
‘No, they would have reported it, if something happened.’
After thinking for a while, Sun’n’stars shook his head.
They would have reported if something had happened.
It was then.
A whisper came from Routing.
-Rooting: I think you should log out for a bit now. News are that Commander has failed.
-Sun’n’stars: Yes? Failed?
-Rooting: Yes, he was reported dead. The Hwarang guild was supposed to be involved. You told us to notify you by phone if anything happens. He will be able to give you a more detailed report.
-Sun’n’stars: I see.
Sun’n’stars ended his whisper with Looting. Then he immediately logged out.
Kim Hyun-sung emerged from the capsule and checked his mobile phone.
There were countless calls from the Commander, Lee Ho-young.
Kim Hyun-sung called Lee Ho-young.
As soon as the call connected, he heard Lee Ho-young’s voice.
Kim Hyun-sung went straight to the main point.
-It was a trap!
And at the words of Lee Ho-young that followed, Kim Hyun-sung was bound to be puzzled.
“What do you mean? Explain it to me slowly.”
-Those motherfuckers of the Hwarang Guild were waiting for us!
“What? The Hwarang Guild were waiting?”
-Yes, they knew we were coming!
Kim Hyun-sung could not say anything.
‘Laying in wait? False information?’
After listening to Lee Ho-young’s words, my head got complicated.
As Kim Hyun-sung was silent, Lee Ho-young called Kim Hyun-sung.
“Let’s hang up. I’ll call you later.”
At the call of Lee Ho-young, Kim Hyun-sung hung up the phone. And was pondering again.
‘How did it happen?’
There were three scenarios that could be considered in the current situation.
First, the Hwarang Guild happened to be waiting there.
Second, that Lilith intentionally handed over false information.
Finally, the third was that Yeon-jeung noticed Lilith’s betrayal.
‘It’s not a coincidence.’
The probability of the first case occurring was close to zero. The village ‘Aryl’ was not where the Hwarang’s Guild House was located, nor was it a famous city. It was just one of many villages. They couldn’t have waited there by coincidence.
‘There’s no way Lilith deliberately passed over such information.’
Lilith has only handed him reliable information so far. All of the sudden she would hand over such information? Like the first scenario, the probability of the second scenario was also close to zero.
‘Then Yeon-jeung must have noticed it and knowingly fed her false information… …
The third scenario remained. This meant Yeon-jeung noticed Lilith’s betrayal and fed Lilith false information.
‘It’s the worst.’
What if Yeon-jeung noticed Lilith’s betrayal? It was the worst.
‘He will post it on the board in any case.’
The loss of a high-quality informant was already a loss, but Yeon-jeung wouldn’t stay quiet either.
In the old game the image of the Dokgo Guild was severely damaged by Yeon-jeung. And Kefarm, an elite guild member, and some other guild members left the guild.
‘I have to talk to her first.’ There was nothing for sure yet. He first had to hear what had happened form Lilith.
Kim Hyun-sung put his phone down and headed to the capsule.
Lilith was ashamed by the current situation.
She was so ashamed that Yeon-jeung knew.
“… … I have enjoyed all the time we spend together.”
Yeon-jeung said. Then the messages began to appear.
[You have become a general guild member.]
[You were expelled from the guild ‘Reader’.]
Following the message, the guild mark of the leader guild that was above Lilith’s head also disappeared.
Yeon-jeung looked at Lilith silently. Lilith stood up from the sofa, while Yeon-jeung silently observed her.
And she knelt down.
“I’m sorry. I wasn’t in the right mind for a while.”
On her knees asking for forgiveness, Lilith looked at Yeon-jeung.
Yeon-jeung only looked at her cold and confused. But that was all. Disgust appeared, but the coldness did not disappear.
But Lilith didn’t leave.
She looked at Yeon-jeung while kneeling down.
There was a moment of silence.
It was Yeon-jeung who broke the silence.
“I don’t know what I’ll do yet. I need to get my head sorted out first.”
After Yeon-jeung finished speaking, she bit her teeth.
Lilith admired Yeon-jeung’s words and actions. It wasn’t that she had never seen Yeon-jeung angry. Thanks to the Dokgo Guild, she had seen it many times.
However, being the target of his anger was a whole other story.
Lilith, who had tried kneel until Yeon-jeung would forgive her, stood up.
And she left the room with a complicated expression.
‘What do I do now?’
Lilith, who exited the guild house, thought while walking in a lost pace. She was so ashamed that she had no idea what to do.
It was then.
A whisper came from Sun’n’stars.
Lilith couldn’t answer immediately even after seeing Sun’n’stars’s whisper. It was because she was anxious for some reason.
However, as it could not be ignored, Lilith quickly responded to Sun’n’stars’s whisper.
-Sun’n’stars: Something strange happened. I think we should talk for a while. Do you have time to talk?
Sun’n’stars’s whisper hit Lilith’s anxiety.
It was because Sun’n’stars’ whisper was related to the current situation.
-Lilith: I was caught.
As Lilith thought about how to send the answer, Lilith finished thinking and sent whisper.
-Sun’n’stars: Did Yeon-jeung notice?
-Sun’n’stars: It certainly was. Then about your guild… … .
-Lilith: I was kicked out.
-Sun’n’stars: Then, we can talk with ease. Come to our guild house. I’d love to hear about what happened.
Lilith frowned at Sunstar’s whisper. But that’s all, I had to go.
-Lilith: I see. I will be there soon.
Lilith answered Sunbyul’s whisper and headed to the Dokgo Guild’s Guild House.
Yang Joo-hyuk was constantly hitting the keyboard.
That’s when Jang Yul came.
“Yes, What is it?”
Yang Joo-hyuk responded to Jang Yul’s call while continuing to hit the keyboard.
“I got what you asked for back then.”
“What do you mean?”
At Jang Yul’s words, Yang Joo-hyuk had no choice but to ask. It was because he had asked him for a lot of different things.
“When Soo-hyuk found the staff you asked me to find the staff’s rating and related items.”, Jang Yul replied to Yang Joo-hyuk’s question.
Legendary items also had an additional rating. There were a total of six Classes, from Class 1 to Class 6 with Class 1 being the best.
When Soo-hyuk acquired the ‘Legendary’ weapon <Mage Ryan’s Invisible Staff> Yang Joo-hyuk asked Jang Yul for the rating and related items.
“Yes, what Class is it?”
Yang Joo-hyuk, who made up his memory, asked Jang-yul behind when he touched the keyboard.
“It’s Class 2.”
“… … Class 2?”
Yang Joo-hyuk frowned at Jang Yul’s answer.
“No, I thought it was Class 1 why is it Class 2? This is making me anxious.”
Not the best Class 1, but the Class 2 below that. But why did Yang Joo-hyuk react like this?
“Ah, do you know about the creation of the ‘God’ item grade?”
It was because of the secret according to the class. The secret was related to the ‘God’ grade, the grade above the ‘Legendary’ grade.
There were very few “God”-level items that can be obtained with difficulty.
Most of the ‘God’-grade items were manufactured.
And the main ingredient needed to make ‘God’ grade equipment was ‘Legendary’ grade equipment.
Not all ‘Legendary’ equipment were suitable as ingredient. First Class ‘Legendary’ equipment couldn’t be used as a material for ‘God’ grade equipment.
The only materials that could be used were ‘Legendary’ equipment of level 2 or lower.
Of course, not all ‘Legendary’ equipment below grade 2 were suitable as material.
“To craft it? What about the related items?”
Yang Joo-hyuk, who wished it wasn’t a ingredient even though it was 2nd Class, felt uneasy at Jang’s words.
“Yes, there were two?”
Jang Yul said in a relaxed voice, as if he didn’t notice Yang Joo-hyuks worries.
“What are they?”
“’Void’ and ‘The Intangible Destroyer’.”
“What are the options?”
“It’s too much to explain in words. I’ll show it to you later.”
Jang Yul returned to his seat at Yang Joo-hyuk’s answer. When Jang Yul returned and Yang Joo-hyuk thought.
‘What if he figured out how to craft it?’
What if he figured out how to craft a ‘God’ grade item?
Then, with a sudden thought, Yang Joo-hyuk was able to forget his worry.
‘He said it was ridiculously difficult?’
It didn’t matter if Soo-hyuk figured out how to craft it. It was because the production method was ridiculously difficult.
‘Master said it should take at least a year, so I shouldn’t worry about it now.’
It was Yang Joo-hyuk’s teacher, Jang Gyeong-gyu, the mind behind Pangea.
Jang Gyeong-gyu told him.
Even if he figured out how to make it and did my best to make it, it would take at least a year.
There was no need to worry.
‘That’s why Jang Yul was so relaxed.’
Realizing why Jang’s expression was relaxed, Yang Joo-hyuk started hitting the keyboard again.
