Chapter 187: Unlocking the special options
Soo Hyuk focused on Pavian’s words.
“No… I am not sure yet.”
However, Soo Hyuk was left wondering at Pavian’s subsequent words.
“Take care! If anything happens, call me right away!”
Soo Hyuk answered Pavian’s question. After saying his goodbyes, he left.
Soo Hyuk came out of the room and while heading to the first floor he kept thinking.
‘There is obviously something going on.’
Pavian was obviously trying to say something.
‘It is probably related to me, as he told me to take care.’
After arriving at the tower’s first floor, he headed straight to the library. He wanted to read [What is Dark Magic] book & check if there are any more books that he had fulfilled their conditions.
Soon after arriving to the Matab Library, he took the [What is Dark Magic] book. Then he started looking to see if there were any other books that changed colors.
No book had changed colors. He was disappointed because he thought that some books would change their colors.
‘It has been a long time since I was here.’
Soo Hyuk then sat down and started reading [What is Dark Magic]
‘It is here.’
As he expected, information about ‘Child of Darkness’ was in the book.
‘Hey! When it is in the beginner stage it attacks everything except friendly units. That was dangerous.’
Fortunately he upgraded the skill to intermediate level before he met any NPCs.
‘When the skill evolved to an advanced level!’
Soo Hyuk exclaimed inwardly.
‘It says they follow me and can cast their own magic.’
In the book it was mentioned that when the skill level evolved to advanced the ‘Children of Darkness’ will follow the caster and cast their own magic.
‘Even though they can cast only dark magic, this skill is no joke.’
Soo Hyuk moved on to the next chapter.
Soo Hyuk thought that the contents about ‘Children of Darkness’ would have ended because the book just mentioned the advanced level. However, the next chapter was talking about ‘Children of Darkness’ as well.
‘The skill evolves again! Does that mean there is a Superior level?’
Usually the highest skill proficiency is the advanced level. However, in the book the ‘Children of Darkness’ skill can be evolved one more time to reach the Superior level.
‘Wow, that’s crazy!’
After reading the explanation, Soo Hyuk once again exclaimed in admiration.
It was because the Superior level of the skill was very powerful.
‘But is this a good thing?’
Soo Hyuk took a moment to think. At the start he thought it was a good thing, but after thinking more about it. It might not necessarily be a good thing.
‘It won’t be upgraded right now anyways. I can think about it later.’
Soo Hyuk finished his thought and continued reading the book.
[Wisdom increased significantly]
After reading the last chapter a notification appeared.
Soo Hyuk checked his character screen.
Stamina: 1088 
Wisdom: 8049 (+700)
Bonus stats: 635
Seeing his wisdom stat brought joy to his heart. Soo Hyuk closed the character window then stood up.
After returning the book, he then took back his mage token and left the library, then headed to the warp gate.
After arriving at the warp gate Soo Hyuk took out the money, then answered.
He intended to use the Hard Rock auction house. And then check the library if he fulfilled any book’s conditions.
“Here you go.”
Soo Hyuk handed over the gold then he warped to Hard Rock. After arriving he headed to the library.
A low level demon covered in blood told the Hunting King.
-I don’t know what portal you guys are talking about.
“I don’t know #$%#$#%#%”
“Leah cast the interpretation spell.”
Leah quickly cast the interpretation spell on the Hunting King so that he could understand what the low-level demon was saying.
-You guys will suffer gruesome deaths.
After that the demon took its last breaths and died.
“No one knows about the existence of the portal.”
The Hunting King muttered in slight frustration. The party is looking for a portal that connects to the Middle World.
“It is not the same as the 11th Demon World.”
Yoo Jin approached and then said.
The party of the Hunting king, Leah and Yoo Jin first set foot at the 11th Demon World not the 10th. However, without any information the party hunted monsters and demons in the Demon World for leveling up and items. In their travels they learned of a portal that connects to the 10th Demon World and they travelled to the 10th Demon World.
“It would have been much easier if it was like the 11th Demon World.”
The demons of the 11th Demon World are different from the 10th. Most of the demon tribes in the 11th Demon World knew the location of the portal to the Middle World and 10th Demon World. Above all else the demon tribes in the 11th Demon World helped the party, hoping that they could defeat the boss monster guarding the portal to the 10th Demon World.
What if the demons in the 10th Demon World were like the ones in the 11th one? They would have been able to go to the next world without resorting to this massacre. But life is full of disappointments.
“Let’s go to the next town.”
The Hunting King took the lead and began to move ahead followed by Leah and Yoo Jin.
Soo Hyuk thought as he walked out of the Hard Rock Library.
‘Even though there are a lot of books.’
Like the Matab Library there were no new books glowing at Hard Rock Library.
“Buying gold! 100 won per 1 gold! I will buy it immediately!”
“Selling gold! 1050 won per 100 gold! We sell cheaply!”
Upon arriving at the auction house, Soo Hyuk went straight to the auction house NPC and opened the auction window.
Then he searched for ‘Spirit Stones.’
Soon the prices of spirit stones appeared, Soo Hyuk exclaimed inwardly because they were priced at 400 gold not 500.
Since he is buying 1500 Spirit Stones, it is a joyous news.
Soo Hyuk smiled and started purchasing.
[Obtained 5 Spirit Stones
[Obtained 2 Spirit Stones]
Probably because of the rarity, the price of Spirit Stones kept increasing as he bought. And when he bought all 1500 spirit stones the prices were back at 500 gold per Spirit Stone.
After purchasing all the required spirit stones, Soo Hyuk then searched for Stones of Evil Spirits.
‘250 gold, the Stone of Evil Spirits are cheaper as well.’
Like the Spirit Stones the Stones of Evil Spirits was cheaper as well. However, there are many Stones of Evil Spirits in the market so even if you bought 1500 the price wouldn’t fluctuate.
With a smile Soo Hyuk started purchasing Stones of Evil Spirits.
[Obtained 5 Stones of Evil Spirits]
[Obtained 2 Stones of Evil Spirits]
Not long after Soo Hyuk finished purchasing all the Spirit Stones & Stones of Evil Spirits that he will need.
Soo Hyuk closed the auction window then checked the quests of the Ring of Retem and the Ring of Artem.
A delightful smile was formed on his lips.
“What options shall I see first?”
It wasn’t his legendary item, but the first special option that he could unlock.
‘I almost finished this quest as well.’
Soo Hyuk saw ‘Mage Ryan’s Invisible Staff 1’
There are hidden options that can be unlocked by fulfilling the conditions.
[Hunt monsters while using Mage Ryan’s invisible staff: 8,287 / 10,000]
[Cast magic through Mage Ryan’s invisible staff: 1,000/1,000]
Quest reward: The unlocking of Mage Ryan’s Invisible Staff first special option.
He finished the casting magic quest, all that is left is hunting monsters. He can unlock the first special option before reaching the Forest of Enchantment.
‘Let’s get it done.’
Soo Hyuk completed the quests for The Ring of Retem & The Ring of Artem.
[You have completed the quest Ring of Retem 1]
[You have unlocked the first option of the Ring of Retem]
[You have completed the quest Ring of Retem 2]
[You have unlocked the second option of Ring of Retem]
A message appeared each time a quest was completed, while Soo Hyuk’s anticipation grew.
After completing all the quests, Soo Hyuk opened the equipment window and checked the new options. After confirming the options Soo Hyuk opened his eyes in surprise.
“I’m here! here!”
Yeon Jung who discovered Soo Hyuk waved his hands while shouting.
“Did you auction it?”
Yeon Jung asked as soon as Soo Hyuk came near.
“The Alcandium Armor Leggings?”
“Oh, I did. It will be auctioned in two days, Wednesday at 8pm. The auction duration is three days.”
Before coming to Hard Rock, Soo Hyuk used the reservation system to list the Alcandium Armor Leggings.
“But are you sure that you don’t want it?”
Soo Hyuk was thinking of giving the armor to Yeon Jung but he refused.
“I don’t care if it was a penny or two. But this armor is too much for a gift.”
They don’t know how much the armor will cost but considering the price of Yarion’s Wrath it will be pretty expensive.
“And maybe we will get something better this time.”
Yeon Jung grinned while saying.
Soo Hyuk nodded at the smile of Yeon Jung.
They left Hard Rock and began their journey to the Rail Plains.
“What about your ring options?”
Yeon Jung asked.
“Were they any good?”
Soo Hyuk smiled at the question.
“You’ll find out later.”
Yeon Jung tilted his head at Soo Hyuk’s mysterious answer.
“How long do you think you can stay today?”
Soo Hyuk asked.
“You’re staying till 12 o’clock, right?”
“I think I can stay longer than last time.”
Yeon Jung checked the time and said,
“If we don’t get delayed at Heaven’s Lake, we can go all the way to the Akonia Mountains.”
Soo Hyuk made a mysterious expression at the words of Yeon Jung.
Yeon Jung grew even more curious at Soo Hyuk’s behavior.
At that moment.
They both stopped talking and looked ahead to see who was calling.
They exclaimed at the same time.
