Reader - Chapter 176: 4th Attribute
“Since I am currently lacking single target spells. I wonder if I should choose an attribute with many single target ones.”
Currently, Soo Hyuk had three attributes, Fire, Poison and Healing.
Fire and Poison Magic were mostly AoE type. There was a lack of single target spells.
“Do you need a single target spell?”
Yeon Jeung tilted his head.
“Yes. I need it.”
Soo Hyuk recalled the war with the Dokgo Guild which had just finished.
In the battle with Rooting, he couldn’t use AoE spells so he had to eventually run away from the battle.
And it was difficult to deal with the Dokgo Guild members who attacked by hiding among the normal users.
A single target spell was essential.
“Then which attribute will you choose? Is there any attribute with single target magic?”
Yeon Jeung asked once again.
“Dark, Earth or Illusion. I am thinking of choosing one of those three.”
The remaining attributes were Electric, Dark, Light, Illusion, Water, Wind and Earth.
And Dark, Illusion and Earth were the only ones where single target spells were present so he is going to choose one of them.
“Is it easy to unlock them?”
“No. It will be difficult.”
When he tried unlocking the Wind attribute, there were a lot of complications on how to open it.
And the Poison attribute would have never been unlocked if not the for the <Poison Master> title obtained from Pavian.
Healing attribute was also difficult, he unlocked it with luck.
If his Wisdom was not high due to reading a lot of books, the damage would have not been high and he would have failed to unlock it.
‘Well the situation is a little different now.’
His Wisdom has ridiculously grown and above Legendary Weapons have also emerged.
“Why are you asking though?”
“Because you will reach Level 300 as we go forward and then you can unlock it but will you?”
“When the time comes! It would be better to be a little stronger.”
Rail Plains was easy. Whether they were normal monsters or boss monsters he could easily defeat them.
But it’s just the beginning.
Including the Damp Wetlands, he has to travel five more areas to reach the Enchanted Forest and the four more from there to reach Hayden.
Monsters will become strong as they go beyond. It’s easy for now but it will be difficult to cross other areas.
“Tell me when you are Level 300. I can wait!”
Soo Hyuk responded with a deep smile to Yeon Jeung’s words.
It was then.
The ground shook with a tremor.
Soo Hyuk smiled with joy.
Yeon Jeung quickly looked around.
The reason Soo Hyuk was happy and Yeon Jeung looked around was because of the roaring and shaking of the ground which were signals of the appearance of a boss monster.
Soon Yeon Jeung shouted and Soo Hyuk looked in the direction he was pointing at. An orc was approaching from a distance.
Soo Hyuk and Yeon Jeung naturally got ready for the fight.
They started going towards the Orc.
“How long will it take to defeat it?”
Yeon Jeung asked.
“About 5 magic spells.”
Soo Hyuk recalled the boss monsters whom he had defeated before at Yeon Jeung’s question and then answered.
Yeon Jeung thought with a surprised expression.
‘The boss monster will only take 5 spells?’
If it was an ordinary wizard, it would have been impossible to image it.
‘One can defeat a boss monster with 5 magic spells? Is it even possible?’
It was a surprise for him that a boss monster can be defeated in five spells.
‘I cannot get as strong as him….’
Seeing Soo Hyuk, he wanted to raise his ability and level but he couldn’t.
Above all else, he was not confident to read books like Soo Hyuk.
[One of the rulers of Rail Plains, Floating Stone Wind Orc, Teul has appeared.]
Soon the distance got closer and messages appeared.
-Chwiik! Human? How are humans here?
Teul tilted his head seeing Yeon Jeung and Soo Hyuk.
Soo Hyuk started casting magic spells on Teul.
“Poison Swamp. Poison Thorns. Poison Sphere. Poison Strom. Poison Chain.”
A poisonous swamp appeared beneath Teul’s feets and sharp thorns protruded from the swamp.
Then a Poison Spear appeared and flew towards Teul then Poison Storm appeared swallowing Teul and finally a poison chains flew towards Teul inside the storm.
All at once.
[One of the rulers of Rail Plains, The Floating Stone Wind Orc Teul was killed.]
[Item acquired <Teul’s Gloves>]
[Item acquired Powerful Blood of a Wind Orc]
That was the end.
Shortly after the poison chains flew to him, Teul died.
Soo Hyuk looked at the messages and looked at Yeon Jeung.
Yeon Jeung was watching the Poison Storm while holding a shield.
Soo Hyuk said to Yeon Jeung with a deep smile.
“I said I could defeat it in 5 magic spells.”
“Oh, it was….”
Yeon Jeung thought and nodded.
‘He defeated it so quickly.’
Soo Hyuk had said five spells but he thought it would take some time for him to die from AoE magic, not be one shot.
Soo Hyuk took the lead and began walking.
“Oh, I am a fool.”
Doha looks at the monitor and bangs his head.
“I shouldn’t have just thought about the burn status.”
The monitor was full of information about Soo Hyuk.
‘Why didn’t I think of the Poison?’
Was it because the first death was so shocking?
Soo Hyuk wiped the whole Dokgo Guild with Poison magic but why did he not think about Poison?
Soo Hyuk was a triple attribute magician, Poison, Fire and Healing.
There is nothing worth paying attention towards the healing spells.
He only needs to prepare for the Burns and Poison.
Doha stood up from the spot.
‘Is he going to be at the entrance again?’
He thought while walking over to the capsule. He was at the entrance earlier, would he still be there?
Doha logged in to Pangea and immediately opened his skills window.
Then he clicked on <Blessing of Water>. Wow!
A window appeared and Doha confirmed Soo Hyuk’s location and he was bound to be surprised.
It was because Soo Hyuk was now in Damp wetlands
He was worried because it was too risky to go there all alone.
It was then.
A whisper came from Helly.
Doha smiled at Helly’s whisper. [ED Note: This kid doesn’t know what’s good for him LOL]
Come to think of it, he wasn’t alone.
-Doha: Oh, where are you?
-Helly: Huh? East Entrance
-Helly: Have you given up?
Helly asked Doha but he couldn’t lie so he couldn’t say that had given up.
-Doha: I will come! Wait!
Instead he talked about going to him and walked over the East Entrance where Helly was.
‘How many times would I have to try before winning?’
Doha knew well that he couldn’t beat Soo Hyuk.
Nevertheless, by continuing challenging him, he will cause annoyance.
So far, Doha had numerous victories however they were not real victories.
Most of the opponents were defeated because of annoyance.
‘Will I lose 7 or 8 times?’
Doha imagined the situation when he would be defeated by Soo Hyuk.
‘No in the current scenario, even if I die dozens of times. I won’t care.’
But dying in a single magic spell won’t cause any annoyance. He had to at least exchange a few attacks.
‘If only he could exchange attacks with him….’
Will Soo Hyuk be eventually defeated by him being a bother?
Doha smiled imagining the situation which might follow.
“It’s the Damp Wetlands from there.”
Yeon Jeung raised his hand and pointed in front of him.
“There are three types of monster here: Poison Lizard, Poison Frog and Poison Bee. You have to be careful about the poison. Especially the Paralysis and Bleeding Poisons!”
There were a total of three types of monsters inhabiting Damp Wetlands.
All of them were Poison monsters.
“Huh. It will take a moment to deal with. I will give you immunity and Antidote potions.
Yeon Jeung tried making a deal with Soo Hyuk.
“No. It’s fine.”
But Soo Hyuk cancelled the transaction with a smile.
“You know that my resistance against Poison is very strong. Thanks to the <Poison Master> title.”
Soo Hyuk was immune to normal poison.
Now that his Wisdom had drastically increased, the quality of Poisons classified as “normal” would have also increased and even if he was affected by them, his magic defence was high enough for him to not receive any damage.
Above all else, He can defeat them before being affected by Poison.
“Oh, right. You have resistance against Poison.”
Yeon Jeung remembered the time when they went to the <Ryan’s Dungeon> to get <Ryan’s Treasure> and nodded.
“But have you decided? Which attribute are you unlocking?”
Yeon Jeung asked after he stopped nodding.
While coming to the Damp Wetlands, they met numerous Wind Orcs and all of them were killed by Soo Hyuk. So he was able to reach Level 300 to unlock the new attribute.
“I haven’t decided yet but I am thinking of either unlocking Dark or Earth attributes.”
Soo Hyuk had doubts about Illusion, Earth, and Dark attributes and now he has excluded Illusion from it.
Although Illusion had single target spells but its numbers were too small compared to the other two.
“Aren’t there more single target type spells in Earth Attribute?’
“There are more of them but Dark has better utility.”
Earth and Dark, both had their strengths and weaknesses.
First of all, in the case of the Earth attribute, there were more single target spells and it could be said to be very suitable for Soo Hyuk who was looking for single target spells.
However, in the case of Dark attribute, there were various special spells like Preventing Warp
Should he choose the one with more spells or the one with less but more diverse spells?
He was worried about choosing Dark and having some strange affect on him.
“Which one do you think is better?”
Yeon Jeung replied as if he had waited for Soo Hyuk’s question.
“Earth attribute has a lot of single target spells but as you said Dark has less spells but if you consider the utility, Dark is perfect!”
“Is that so?”
Soo Hyuk nodded at Yeon Jeung.
[You have entered Damp Wetlands.]
Soo Hyuk and Yeon Jeung were able to reach the Damp Wetlands.
After arriving, Soo Hyuk shouted.
“I will unlock it and come back.”
“Now? Which one?”
“Dark. I thought about it and I prefer Dark. It’s better to unlock it.”
“Okay. Then I will log out and wait. Please contact me when you are done!”
In response to Soo Hyuk, Yeon Jeung logged out and disappeared.
Yeon Jeung disappeared and Soo Hyuk cast <Subspace>
[Warped to the subspace of Archmage Lapis.]
[The <Blessing of Water> had disappeared.]
When Soo Hyuk arrived at the subspace, a message popped and he tilted his head seeing it.
“If the Dimension changes then it disappears.]
It was because the <Blessing of Waterl> had disappeared.
“It’s a big deal.”
Soo Hyuk frowned.
It was quite difficult for Doha to follow him without the <Blessing of Water>
Soo Hyuk sighed and approached the <Door of Darkness>
[Would you like to unlock the Door of Darkness?]
When he touched the door, a message appeared and Soo Hyuk then clicked Okay. Following which countless messages appeared.
[Opening the Door of Darkness.]
[Current Number of Trials: 3]
[Defeat all the summoned monsters.]
If any monsters are alive 2 minutes after the death of the first monster then all monsters will be revived again.
