Reader - Chapter 149: Attack
Proofreaders: Makarovfey and Spirin
Rooting got a whisper when he was inside the room.
-Ricardo: It is heard that one of the members of Reader Guild is coming towards the guild house.
-Ricardo: It’s a wizard.
-Revardi: Many of the guild members of other factions have died. In our faction, Rekkard and Leroy died. Considering that Leroy is dead, he seems to be quite strong.
-Ricardo: I found the name through the guild, he is called Soo Hyuk.
It was a whisper from Ricardo.
‘It’s Soo Hyuk. The one with Yarion’s Wrath.”
Rooting left the guild house and headed towards the warp gate, while thinking.
‘Why did he come here?’
I don’t understand.
Why did Soo Hyuk come here?
He said, ‘I heard he is here for an acquaintance.’
Does he not know about this place?
‘What is his purpose?’
No, he couldn’t have not heard the about the guild.
There would have to be a purpose for coming here.
‘Isn’t it just like the case with the Devil Guild?’
Suddenly, Rooting narrowed his eyebrows.
Rooting knew who Soo Hyuk was.
How he got the nickname Devil Hunter.
How he retaliated against the Devil Guild.
Why did he do that to the Devil Guild?
Maybe the reason he appeared here now, the reason he is coming to the guild house, the guild house just like the Devil Guild.
I thought he might be here to play games.
‘There is a high probability of it being false… …’
Of course, he wasn’t sure.
The odds were low.
The Dokgo Guild is not as weak as the Devil guild.
Soo Hyuk cannot not know that.
Wasn’t he an acquaintance of Yeon Jeung?
‘If I go, I will know.’
The purpose of coming here will be known if he goes
Not long after, Rooting could hear a binge.
Routing is getting close to the destination and he could see the situation was getting worse.
It was then.
“So you arrived”
Ricardo, who discovered rooting, approached him.
“Where is he?”
Rooting asked Ricardo.
“Can you see the smoke over there?”
Ricardo pointed forward with his finger.
Rooting saw where Ricardo was pointing at.
It was unknown where it began, but black smoke was rising in the sky.
“Is he there?”
“What’s special about him?”
“He is a triple wizard who has acquired the poison, fire, and heal properties. And despite not having a weapon, his damage is enormous.”
“What? No weapons?”
Rooting, who was watching, looked at Ricardo with a surprised expression.
“Yes, I guess he is an unofficial ranker.”
“Well, it’s an unofficial ranker… …”
Rooting muttered while watching the smoke again.
“And he is not using AoE ranged fire magic.”
Rooting laughed at Ricardo’s words.
“A wizard who doesn’t use AoE magic… …”
Most of the magic that can be learned at a high level was AoE magic. But what if he doesn’t use AoE magic?
“He will be easier to catch”
“Shall I convey this to others”
“Are they nearby?”
“Yes they are waiting.”
“Convey it to them”
“First thing is to bring out the kids.”
Rooting spoke to Ricardo and headed for the smoke. Then he opened the equipment window and clicked the armament button.
When he clicked the armament button, the appearance of Rooting changed in an instant.
All armor turned silver and a spear appeared in the air.
Unlike the armor, it was a Black Spear of Silence.
Rooting thought, holding the spear with a satisfied smile.
‘It will be fun.’
Before leaving the Warp Gate, Soo Hyuk opened his inventory.
And he took out a bear mask and put it on after a long time.
‘This covers his face.’
It was far from the idea of hiding his identity as he would be recognized because of the guild mark anyway, but it was not necessary to reveal the face.
After wearing a bear mask, he went into the warp gate.
Soo Hyuk, who came out, looked around.
He wants to find Dokgo Guild members.
‘No. I thought they would be around here’
He thought that there must be members of the Dokgo Guild because he was near the warp gate.
However, no one can be seen.
‘Is it because of the declaration of war?’
Soo Hyuk was wary of the surroundings and headed to the Dokgo Guild’s guild house.
“Isn’t he from Reader Guild?”
“Ah, why would someone of Reader Guild come here? Aren’t they at war with the Dokgo Guild?”
“No, look over there.”
Soo Hyuk’s ears picked up the conversation of the users while be was heading towards the guild house.
Soo Hyuk saw the users having the conversation.
They weren’t Dokgo Guild members.
However, even if they were not a member of the Dokgo Guild, he cannot be relieved.
This was the territory of the Dokgo Guild. There will be many people who will have a friendly relationship with the Dokgo Guild and information will soon enter the ears of the Dokgo Guild.
Soo Hyuk sped up.
Speed up again and after a while.
“Is it real?”
“I thought it was a lie.”
“Great! The opportunity to contribute has come so quickly.”
Three men wearing the Dokgo Guild mark were approaching from the front.
“Now, everyone get away. Move!”
“Or you will be killed with him!”
The Dokgo Guild members approached Soo Hyuk and pushed the users around him.
When the users stepped back, Soo Hyuk smiled.
He couldn’t use magic because of regular users, but they handed him over a chance.
He was just grateful.
Soo Hyuk cast Fire Sphere. Wow!
Fire Sphere appeared in the air. And it flew to the Dokgo Guild members who were pushing the surrounding users.
The fire spear exploded and dirt rose around them.
“The Poison Chain.”
Soo Hyuk cast poison toward the dust.
Originally, the chain of poison would appear at the end of a weapon.
However, at present, Soo Hyuk was disarmed and had no weapons.
Without weapons, a chain of poison appeared in the air above Soo Hyuk’s head and quickly flew toward the Dokgo Guild members.
[You killed the Dokgo Guild member ‘Ro-Ro-Ro’.]
A chain of poison entered the dust, and a message appeared shortly afterwards.
[You killed the Dokgo Guild member ‘Omyju’.]
And half of the dirt sank.
Another message appeared.
[You killed the Dokgo Guild member ‘Katrak’.]
The last message appeared when the dust had completely subsided.
“Huh, what is this?”
“Why are they dead?”
“One shot by fire spear? ”
“No, he used some magic after that. The green chain!”
The users who were gathered around began to chat while watching the fallen Dokgo Guild members.
Listening to the users’ conversation, Soo Hyuk approached the bodies of the Dokgo Guild members.
‘It would be perfect if the drop window appeared.”
When you catch a monster, a drop window appears.
However, even if the user drops items, the drop window does not appear.
He had to pick it up himself.
This was really uncomfortable.
Soon after arriving at the corpses of the Dokgo Guild members, Soo Hyuk started looking for the dropped item.
‘Did something drop or not?’
Soo Hyuk frowned.
There were no dropped items.
‘It looks like they haven’t died many times.’
Items are not always dropped just because someone died.
The conditions under which the items are dropped were not known exactly, but they were known to be dropped when the Infamy was high or when someone dies multiple times.
“Wow, it’s meticulous.”
“The dropped items…
“But where is he going?”
“If you go straight this way, wouldn’t he see the Dokgo guild house?”
“Hey, no way, the Dokgo Guild guild house?”
Soo Hyuk stood while listening to the users’ conversation and began to take steps toward the Dokgo guild house.
‘How much did he climb?’
As he took steps, Soo Hyuk opened the guild window.
Then, he clicked war and clicked the active [War Status] button.
-Current number of kills: 3
-Contribution to the war: 2597
-Contribution ranking: 27th
‘Hoh, everyone seems to be working hard.’
It hasn’t been long since the war started, and I thought my ranking would be quite high because three people were killed, but it was 27th.
Soo Hyuk, who checked the ranking, closed the guild window.
Then Dokgo Guild members appear in front of him.
[You killed the Dokgo Guild member ‘Rogarmi’.]
Of course, the Dokgo Guild members were killed at the same time as they appeared.
Soo Hyuk thought while looking at Rogarmi, a member of the Dokgo Guild who turned into a corpse in a single poison spear.
‘I heard they were strong.’
He heard that only strong users can enter the Dokgo Guild.
‘Why are they dying so easily?’
Is there any information that Soo Hyuk doesn’t know? Any information from the past.
[You killed the Dokgo Guild member ‘Borret’.]
‘Is my attack power overpowered?’
Even after that, the members of the Dokgo Guild continued to appear and were killed.
‘If this is enough, I can just sweep the guild house.’
Soo Hyuk thought while watching the Dokgo Guild members dying.
At this level, it seemed that the guild house could easily be swept away.
It was then.
[You were attacked by user Korang’.]
[You became hostile to the user ‘Korang’.]
[You’ve fallen into a bleeding state.]
A message appeared with a tingling feeling.
Soo Hyuk stopped and saw the message.
‘… … ?’
Soo Hyuk was puzzled after seeing the message.
‘Isn’t he from the Dokgo Guild?’
If he was with the Dokgo Guild, the hostile status message could not appear in this case.
After seeing the message, Soo Hyuk looked at his left shoulder with a tingling feeling.
There was an arrow stuck in it.
Soo Hyuk pulled out the arrow and saw where the arrow came from.
And Soo Hyuk made eye contact with a man holding a bow.
The Korang in the message was clearly him.
‘Where is he from?’
Korang’s guild mark is the first thing he sees.
‘Is it the Dokgo Guild Alliance Guild? ”
It was a guild mark he was seeing for the first time, but why?
It was possible to know why he was attacked.
Next to Korang was a user wearing the Dokgo Guild mark.
It seemed like a user of an alliance guild or an acquaintance.
Once Soo Hyuk recovered his health by casting heal, the bleeding stopped.
Then, he cast Fire Sphere on Korang.
Fire Spear emerged straight away and flew to Korang.
The Dokgo Guild member who was next to Korang stood in front of Korang with a pike shield.
He seemed to be trying to stop the spear.
Soon, the fire spear exploded on the shield of the Dokgo Guild member.
[You killed the Dokgo Guild member ‘Carrie’.]
And a message appeared.
Soo Hyuk looked at the message and thought while looking at the place where the explosion had occurred.
‘Is he dead?’
Carrie’s death, holding up a shield and blocking Fire Sphere, was revealed through a message.
But not Korang.
In the case of Korang, the message did not appear because he was not at war.
In other words, there was no choice but to see it directly, but it was impossible to check it because of the dirt. What if he hadn’t died?
Attack until death.
Soo Hyuk cast a poison sphere toward the dust.
