As an Ice Troll, Weed strode into the dungeon.
“We just need to exterminate all the monsters in the way.”The dungeon felt empty without monsters. One of the reasons he turned into an Ice Troll was so, rather than wasting time on thinking, he could use that time productively in beating monsters to death.
The quest required as many refugees as possible to be led to safety, away from the invasion of Serabourg Citadel by the Embinyu Church. Speed would define the success or failure of the quest.
The fairies glowed like fireflies, prattling as they followed Weed.
- Awesome. He’s so awesome.
- He’s totally my type. I want to marry him.
Weed equipped the large leather armor he made with his sewing skill just in case. With his level and strength he could wear steel or mithril armor. But he did not make them beforehand as, considering the weight of the armor, carrying them around was too much and the material was too precious to waste.
Weed squared his shoulders and entered the dungeon first. The players following behind him felt secure in the knowledge that Weed was ahead of them.
“To be able to follow after the War G.o.d, Weed… I am salivating to see him fight.”“I’m going to drink in the sight.”
Among the players, the skilled and capable ones stood right behind Weed. The refugees of Serabourg Citadel and beginners continuously lined up at the end of the queue to enter the dungeon.
Weed walked forward calmly, without a care for the dangers ahead.
Slither. He heard a small, strange sound.
- It’s here. It’s here!
- Be careful! Its bites are painful.
- The snake that ate that rabbit yesterday. It’s hiding here.
The glittering fairies that flew around the vicinity alerted Weed.
s.h.i.+CK!A mottled snake flew toward Weed. These monsters were known as Elixa, they lived within the cracks of the walls and hunted the animals pa.s.sing by. “Ah! Weed-nim! Be careful.”“Weed-nim!”
The players cried out in surprise. The Elixas were a species of snake monsters around level 300. Their levels were high and they slithered around at a frightening speed. Although an Ice Troll did not const.i.tute as a tempting prey for the Elixas, the cold radiating from him must have been unpleasant for them so they attacked preemptively.
In the face of the terrifying Elixa’s surprise attack. Weed casually gave a word.
“You look delicious.”
And then, he swung his disproportionately short stick of a sword.
|Elixa has received a huge trauma, it has fallen into confusion. Due to the cold aura from the Ice Troll, Elixa’s speed decreased by 14%.|
Struck by the sword, the Elixa crashed into the wall and rebounded. The unfortunate Elixa temporarily fell into paralysis. Compared to other species, the unusually high strength and agility that the Ice Trolls possessed amplified it’s direct combat potential rather than it’s magic or skills. And with a casual swipe, the Elixa had become helpless.
So Weed continuously struck down the Elixa mercilessly into the ground.
“I am going to roast its meat and take its skin as leather. Should I pack its head to make snake wine later?”Words that could strike fear into every Elixa!
As Elixa were snake monsters that were early to mid level 300, they died quickly under Weed’s barrage.
|Durability of the Demon Sword decreased.|
“Let’s continue.”Weed packed up the drops first before heading off.
From the entrance, several Elixas could be seen groveling on the ground. The slippery monsters moved fast and when they spotted Weed, the Elixas shot toward him like arrows. The Elixas could sink their fangs in before the victim knew it and spread their poison, putting even high level players in a pickle.
Weed swatted these Elixas in the air and knifed them without remorse.
“I can make plenty of wine out of you. Come, come every single one of you!”
This Ice Troll was made for battle. Its arms and legs were long with well defined muscles and the soles were made unusually large. And with the cold pouring from Weed, the snakes became sluggish as soon as they came near him.
- It’s a monster!
- Kyaa! It’s scary!
- You must win. We can’t fail to get past.
Weed leisurely took care of the Elixas all the while listening to the ruckus caused by the fairies.
As they plodded deeper and deeper into the dungeon, the mid 300 level monsters, Rigglers, Voichis, and Guldogs started appearing. These were the most dangerous types of monsters that appeared in this dungeon.
Their attacks were stronger than their level suggested, making it difficult to defeat them. But Weed was indifferent.
“Come at me.”
Weed took full advantage of the Ice Troll’s traits. In human form, he hunted using a combination of precise swordplay and skills. But right now, he did not have enough mana to use skills, only overflowing strength! He could unleash unlimited carnage and destruction. He did not even try to dodge the monsters’ attacks.
“Kill that troll!”“Everyone, let’s attack him together!”
|You were struck by the Voichi’s whip. Additional 26% defense was applied due to the Ice Troll’s resilience.|
|The Riggler’s dagger nicked your leg. Vitality and Health decreased.|
Weed’s health dropped rapidly. But even then, with his colossal 370 thousand health, he was in no danger of dying anytime soon. And on top of that, the Ice Troll’s traits allowed rapid health regeneration. The regeneration was faster than resting and bandaging untransformed.
He relentlessly pushed the monsters back with his unceasing beatdown.
Weed gave a bellow. With the cold emanating from the Ice Troll, the monsters became sluggish and turned into ice.
“Ah, he fights amazingly well.”“He’s really brutal. How can he just charge forward like that?”Players were stunned in disbelief at Weed’s superb battle ability. Weed indulgently received the enemies attacks and returned them sevenfold. The Ice Troll was brutal, smacking the enemy with his sword, pummeling them with stupidly oversized fists and even punting them with his feet. While the Ice Troll’s body was extremely heavy, the inflated strength and agility allowed Weed to move as freely and softly as a feather.
“Strike! Die! Strike! Give me my Items! Strike! You’re still not satisfied?!”Weed acted like a villain. He ran forward in the dungeon, mercilessly striking down every monster that appeared. In the heat of the moment, he accidentally showed his true character!
They broke through the dungeon in the blink of an eye.
- That one on the left is still alive.
- Weed-nim, please trash him more!
- Ah~ he really is my type.
Weed paid no mind to the excited fairies chattering behind his ears as he broke through the dungeon swarming with monsters. His level was over 400, and he had even transformed into an Ice Troll. There were no monsters in the dungeon that could dare to challenge him.
In the level 300 dungeon with a fairly high difficulty rating, Weed animatedly flaunted his strength. The display in front of the players was not a half hearted attempt, rather, it was an overwhelming display of Weed’s prowess.
“It’s an Ice Troll!”“How did it get here…”“Go for a pincer attack! ”Monsters all ran at him at once. But for Weed, they were only tasty treats.
Pa Pa Pa Pa!
Monsters turned into a grey light and disappeared in an instant. Even if someone else used the Sculpture Transformation, they would never be able to fight like Weed. This was because battle instincts became ingrained through practise. Others fought conservatively, trying to save their strength while defending or just dodging the monster’s attacks on instinct.
On the other hand, Weed’s strong point was that he could adapt quickly to any new form. Regardless of whether the monsters were attacking him or not, he steamrolled the dungeon with crus.h.i.+ng force. He was hunting even faster than usual, and the refugees were huffing and puffing as they tried to keep up.
“I feel so a.s.sured because Weed-nim is here with us.”“Compared to others, he fights much better. Ten people combined can’t match him. ”“What do you mean ten, more like twenty.”
The players leading behind Weed had lower levels and were fighting much more carefully. Seo Yoon felt she did not need to show her full prowess as everything was going fine and there were a lot of people around as well. That’s why only Weed’s actions were especially distinguished.
As the players gazed at the Ice Troll, they couldn’t even fathom the crisis happening in Serabourg Citadel as they were br.i.m.m.i.n.g with energy.
