Reader - Chapter 175: Doha
-Yeon Jeung: Did you really kill him?
-Soo Hyuk: Yes.
Soo Hyuk answered Yeon Jeung while looking at Helly.
Helly was staring blankly at Doha’s body.
‘This doesn’t make sense.’
Doha’s death was incredibly shocking to Helly.
The battle began and in less than 5 seconds, Doha fell. He wasn’t even able to do anything.
Helly had seen Doha die countless times but there was no such death.
He raised his head to look at Soo Hyuk.
The user’s story about him destroying the Dokgo Guild all alone made sense. Soo Hyuk was a monster.
Soo Hyuk opened his mouth and tried figuring out Helly’s thoughts.
The battle with Doha was over and he had no reason to be here.
“Ah! Yes. I am sorry.”
Helly once again nodded and expressed his apology.
“No. It was a pleasant experience.”
Soo Hyuk greeted back with a smile and began walking away.
-Yeon Jeung: Do you have a Blessing of Water on you?
-Soo Hyuk: How did you know?
Soo Hyuk was a little surprised, how did he know that he had the Blessing of Water.
-Yeon Jeung: Because of the location tracking.
-Yeon Jeung: It lasts for three hours and he will probably come and visit you soon with it.
-Yeon Jeung: Is he going to give up just because he died in one spell?
Yeon Jeung continued whispering.
-Soo Hyuk: I will see you later. So when will you come?
-Yeon Jeung: All I need to do now is provide the documents and I don’t know how long the discussion might last but I should arrive after 30 minutes of ending the discussion.
-Soo Hyuk: Then call me when you depart.
Soo Hyuk stopped his whispering with Yeon Jeung and then opened his quest window to check <Wisdom of the Killer>
<Special Quest: Wisdom of the Killer >
Meet the conditions given below and then you will be able to obtain the Wisdom of the killer.
Quest Reward: Wisdom Stat Enhancement
A special quest to kill 100 people.
He was thinking of completing the quest in the war with the Dokgo Guild but suddenly the war ended and he was wondering what he should do but an answer has now appeared.
‘It would be nice if he keeps coming.’
Soo Hyuk was hoping that Doha would continue to rush to him as Yeon Jeung said.
‘Shall I challenge him 25 times?’
It’s not difficult to kill Doha, Doha died in one spell.
The question is whether Doha will challenge him 25 times.
Even though the death penalty is only 1 hour for him, it would still be 25 hours in total.
‘But what about the other death penalties? Is it possible?’
Soo Hyuk grinned at the sudden thought.
There are a total of four types of death penalties, Access Restriction, Level Drop, Stat Drop and Item Drop.
For Doha, the access limit penalty was 1 hour instead of the usual 24 hours.
What about the other penalties?
The Item, Stat and Experience Drop?
-Lets take advantage! Go!
Soo Hyuk was thinking about Doha and stopped hearing the sounds and he cast a spell towards the approaching horde of Wind Orcs.
The fire storm appeared, devouring all the Wind Orcs. None of the Wind Orcs were able to get through it.
[Acquired Wind Orc’s Blood x3]
[Acquired Wind Orc’s Tendons x2]
A level up and drop messages appeared.
He opened the character window.
Strength: 40 (+10)
Agility: 29 (+10)
Vitality: 1108 [554 (+10)]
Wisdom: 7059 (+210)
Bonus Stats: 5
Seeing the Bonus Stats and Wisdom, Soo Hyuk thought.
‘I feel regretful.’
Whenever he levelled up so far, he always invested the bonus stats into Wisdom but investing it there was a waste.
This was because he can increase Wisdom through reading books.
‘Would it be better if I invest it in Strength?’
Wisdom can be increased by the books but not Strength.
‘Wait wouldn’t it be better if I increase Stamina?’
Since his physical strength was really high.
But he didn’t feel like increasing Stamina as well.
‘Should I collect it for a while?’
Soo Hyuk contemplated and soon made a decision.
‘Yeah. Lets collect it.’
Currently, Soo Hyuk had no shortage of prey to hunt and he didn’t have to use the bonus stats right now.
Soo Hyuk, who had decided to collect the bonus stats, closed the window and then began searching for more Wind Orcs.
The Wind Orc fell and a message appeared.
Soo Hyuk read the message and checked the drop item and then started walking.
‘When will it be over?’
Soo Hyuk narrowed his eyebrows while taking steps as he checked out the time.
Yeon Jeung said that he only needed to pass the documents but there was no contact from him for 40 minutes.
‘What could have happened?’
He wondered if something could have happened to Yeon Jeung. It was then.
-Yeon Jeung: It’s over.
The whisper which he had been waiting for came.
-Soo Hyuk: Why did it take so long?
Soo Hyuk looked around and confirmed that there were no Wind Orcs around and then sent back a reply.
-Yeon Jeung: Sorry.
-Yeon Jeung: It took time while talking about the future plans.
-Soo Hyuk: Are you coming now?
-Yeon Jeung: Yes. I am on my way.
-Soo Hyuk: Then I will go to the entrance of the exploration base and wait there.
Knowing that Yeon Jeung was on his way, Soo Hyuk planned to go where the exploration base was located. He turned around and began walking.
-Yeon Jeung: The base entrance?
-Yeon Jeung: Soon it will be time for Doha’s death penalty to end.
-Yeon Jeung: He might appear once again!
-Soo Hyuk: It’s okay, it will just take one spell anyways. I have to kill users to complete a quest right now.
-Yeon Jeung: Quest? What are you talking about?
Soo Hyuk explained about the special quest <Wisdom of the Killer> to Yeon Jeung.
-Yeon Jeung: Didn’t you complete the Wisdom stat enhancement quest this morning?
-Soo Hyuk: Yeah there were two of them.
-Yeon Jeung: Two Wisdom stat enhancement quests when other people can hardly get one…..
-Yeon Jeung: Did you get the quests through the books?
-Soo Hyuk: Yes.
-Yeon Jeung: Ha, I envy you.
He was able to reach the entrance of the exploration base while talking with Yeon Jeung.
‘Not a single one appeared….’
He didn’t even encounter one Wind Orc while coming here.
‘Did I defeat too many?’
It felt like the spawn had been cleared.
-Soo Hyuk: I have arrived at the entrance.
He told Yeon Jeung.
-Yeon Jeung: Okay. I will be there in 5 minutes. I think he will arrive there soon. Hang in there!
-Soo Hyuk: Yes.
After finishing whispering with Yeon Jeung, he stood still and waited for him to arrive.
It was then.
Someone came out of the entrance.
Hearing the footsteps, Soo Hyuk turned towards the entrance and smiled.
After checking out the time Kim Do Ha, stood up.
He thought while moving left and right in front of the capsule.
‘Why was he dead?’
He thought about it for nearly an hour but still did not understand.
Why the hell was he dead?
‘I think it might have something to do with the burn status….’
The exact reasons were unknown but at least one of the reasons was clear.
A message indicating the burn status appeared right away and he was burned.
The burns might not be the biggest reason for his death.
But it certainly played a part in it.
‘Let’s drink a Burn Potion and then check it out.’
In this battle against Soo Hyuk, he decided to take a burn potion.
Soon one hour had passed and the alarm went off.
Doha entered the capsule, logged in to Pangea after waiting for a while.
A whisper came from Helly at the exact moment he connected.
Doha responded to Helly and opened his skill window and clicked Blessing of Water.
Then a small window appeared.
It was showing the location of all the people blessed with the Blessing of Water.
Doha tilted his head.
“Is he at the entrance?”
The window was showing the location of Soo Hyuk who was blessed with the Blessing of Water.
And his current position was the exploration base.
‘Did he come back after his hunt?’
The reason for his return to the base was unknown but what was important to Doha was that he could fight Soo Hyuk right now.
-Helly: Where are you?
-Doha: Wait a minute. I will talk to you later.
Doha responded to Helly and started running towards the entrance where Soo Hyuk was.
-Helly: Wait? Hey!
-Helly: Don’t think about going running to him again!
-Helly: You will die in one shot.
Whispers continued from Helly but Doha didn’t answer.
Doha’s head was full with having a battle with Soo Hyuk.
“Soo Hyuk! I am here!”
Yeon Jeung came out of the entrance and raised his hand to greet Soo Hyuk.
Yeon Jeung was greeting, tilted his head and stopped.
It was because someone was lying down in front of Soo Hyuk.
It was evidently a body as black light revolved around it.
‘What is this body?’
Yeon Jeung asked Soo Hyuk.
Soo Hyuk looked at the body once Yeon Jeung asked him the question, raised his head and answered.
He was surprised to find the identity of the body.
“He came just before you did.”
“Huh. He didn’t give up.”
Doha was killed by Soo Hyuk an hour ago. Not in a fierce battle but with one single magic spell.
His persistence was a tremendous help to Soo Hyuk but he thought that he would give up because of such a ridiculous death.
Throughout that time, Soo Hyuk’s words were resilient.
“One spell again this time?
Yeon Jeung glanced at Doha’s body and asked Soo Hyuk.
“Huh. 3 Seconds after being hit with the Poison Spear.”
Yeon Jeung couldn’t say anything in response to Soo Hyuk.
It was Yeon Jeung who was fighting Doha constantly and he was not someone to die in a single magic spell.
‘How many spells would I last?’
Yeon Jeung suddenly became curious.
How many times can he endure Soo Hyuk’s magic spells assuming that he would block them rather than avoiding.
Soo Hyuk asked as he started at Yeon Jeung.
“Nothing. Lets go.”
Yeon Jeung shook his head and started walking.
“But How many monsters did you kill? The level which rose was not a joke.”
“Wind Orcs. I killed so many that it was hard to count.”
“Did you defeat boss monsters as well?”
“Yeah. I defeated three of them but why are there so many boss monsters in the unexplored area?”
“Not all the unexplored areas are like that. There are a lot of them here.”
After answering Soo Hyuk’s question, Yeon Jeung asked.
“By the way, which attribute do you intend to open next?”
“You will be level 300 soon. Can’t you open one after every 100 levels?”
Soo Hyuk who got confused at Yeon Jeung’s words, answered it after the following words by Yeon Jeung.
Soo Hyuk thought for a moment and answered.
