Volume 10 Chapter 4

By Wing - 2:48 AM

Single Point Attack Arts


The Dark Spear tore sharply through the air and rushed in a straight line, piercing the Bone Dragon’s wing.


Howled the Bone Dragon greatly. It screamed painful groans.

"Only just the beginning."

Weed on the other hand just smiled. Before killing the Bone Dragon, he enjoyed watching it writhe in pain.

His happiness is relative to its suffering!

Normally, he would have undoubtedly given away a rotten smile, but now that he was a skeleton, he was free to cruelly laugh. Thus, he laughed, significantly spreading his tempromandibular apart. (jaw joint)

More bastardly than anyone else.


Weed suddenly burst into laughter.

He took out a large number of red potions from his backpack.

Rapid recovery potions.

They were refreshments that rapidly healed injuries. Indispensable as one could not buy them.

“Elder brothers, try to gather over here!”

55 Geomchis were still alive. With life surpassing that of cockroaches, they survived the battle with the monsters.

“What’s the matter?”

“What’s going on?”

The Geomchis hanged around at the gathering place.

“If you’re in danger, drink it.”

Weed gave each of them 9 red potions, not forgetting to add a few words.

“What a lovely aroma.”


The Geomchis cheered.

To them, such things were considered the same as tasty delicacies!

Geomchi 39 opened the cap of a potion.

“Oh, this soft scent.”

The potion of life was refreshing and simple.

Made out of troll’s blood, the potion was undeniably a great drink.

The Geomchis viewed this as eating a delicacy.


Geomchi 39 had no immediate need for it, so when he was about to drink the potion, Weed said something insinuating.



“Geomchi 16 was such a glorious warrior elder brother.”

“Uh, what do you mean?”

Geomchi 39 was quite surprised, his eyes narrowing. The dead man was intolerable due to deliberately escaping danger.

“What the hell happened?”

“Well... the fact is, it worked out with a woman he liked in the expedition, elder brother.”

“What went through the woman’s mind that made her like dead senior?”

“He fought to keep the monsters away from her and died bravely, so the woman registered him as a friend.”

Register friends!

Geomchi 39's eyes sparkled and thousands of photos came into view. The Geomchis that had gathered around to get potions also stumbled.

“Disgrace to register friends......”

“You fucking with me?”

“Until now, I thought us men only had the ability to register friends with each other.”

Geomchi 39 dubiously asked.

“Are you saying he really registered a woman as a friend using that method?”

“Yeah, definitely.”

“You saw it with your own eyes, not in a dream, right? It’s not some story based on ridiculous rumors you heard?”

“I heard the report directly from him. Women like strong men. Fight the Bone Dragon while looking awesome, even if you fail, you demonstrate your courage so their minds will certainly have positive thoughts.”

Geomchi 39 grabbed his weapon.


“Yes, elder brother?”

“Good information, thanks for the heads up. Euaaa! This old bachelor owes you his honor.”

Geomchi 39 ran toward the Bone Dragon with all his power. No matter how strong the Bone Dragon was, it was not as frightening as washing dishes all alone!

Lonely Geomchi 39 howled. The other Geomchis that subsequently followed rushed fiercely as well.

“Kill that thing!”

“Must die as beautifully and elegantly as possible!”

‘They did not have the mind to back off anyway.’

More than anyone, the Geomchis enjoyed combat, there’s no way they would ever perceive the opponent as a burden.

So far, the expedition was quietly taking a rest when a change occurred in the army of wizards and priests.

“All the mana I collect here … let this bright light burn straight towards the enemy and be a strike of fury. Mana Burn!”

Wizard’s Mana Burn attack!

The Bone Dragon flying low in the sky crashed to the ground once again by the Mana Burn attack.

Priests also joined forces.

“Ionizing powers. Please grant me the power to make things right and defeat the monster. Grant thy servant the strength to reclaim the luminosity. I fear neither the sacrifice nor the counsel against me.”

The ultimate divine magic was available only to priests that had completed their second advancement.

Noble Sacrifice!

It was a technique that sacrificed all health and mana in order to attack the enemy.

The damage was more than wizard’s Mana Burn, but priests could not endure casting it.

They lost their lives after a single use.

Even after the death of the priests, parties of the expedition still continued to fight hard.

Truly a last resort!

“Kyaoo! Cowardly humans! Stake your pride in this battle and fight honorably!"

The Bone Dragon’s body blazed. From the inside of its body, hot flames rose and bloomed thanks to the priests’ Noble Sacrifice.

The Bone Dragon on the ground struggled with the pain from the strike.

Unfortunately, the sacrifice of the priests exerted deadly havoc upon undead and vampires.

“Disgusting hot lights shining. They have robbed the power of us nobility of the night.”

Noble Sacrifice also adversely affected Tori.

Tori and the Vampires that fought by turning into bats until now were turned to ashes by the priests’ Noble Sacrifice.

The death was not complete, but they received a strong blow and were reverse summoned!

However, there was now an opportunity.

The Geomchis and Dark Gamers caused a rampage with the Bone Dragon by brandishing their swords and weapons at it.

Kill the Bone Dragon!

But the Bone Dragon did not succumb.

"Stupid humans! Learn what it means to anger me!"

It brandished its whip like tail meters in length to attack the humans.


Icebolts fell like rain from the sky. The Geomchis, Dark Gamers and Seoyoon also met with the Icebolts.

The Bone Dragon sustained damage from the magic at the expense of the whole region.

Narrow Icebolts went beautifully down at random.


"Help me!"

The Wizards, Elementalists and priests that lost their powers were the first to die.

Across the Valley of Death, there was no place to avoid the falling Icebolts.

You could only absorb it with your body!

"Sacred doom spear descend. Spear born from the darkness, penetrate the enemy's heart. Appear, Dark Spear!"

As soon as Weed recovered his mana, he summoned the Dark Spear again and then silently approached the Bone Dragon.

‘It’s better to be up close to that enormous body.’

Weed violently pierced the Bone Dragon with the spear.

No need for special attacks.


The gigantic figure lying on the ground was assaulted by many attacks.

Moving at spectacular speeds, the Geomchis arrived, but were met with resistance magic at that moment, rendering them unable to slash the Bone Dragon.

Rather than level or skill, it was instinctive behavior.

They combined their movements and slashed the Bone Dragon.

“Kill it!”

“We can win this way.”

Thanks to the sacrifice of the wizards and priests, the Bone Dragon’s huge body was trapped on the ground, allowing it to be attacked.

Nevertheless, the enormous Bone Dragon still had over 20% health remaining.

Suddenly, the Bone Dragon’s eyes shone with brilliance. It opened its mouth and took a deep breath.


“Everybody out of here!”

Weed, the Geomchis and Dark Gamers wielded their weapons and stood back as everything burned.


The Bone Dragon’s strongest attack skill, the breath bursting from its mouth was a sign to escape.

“How many times can it use its breath?”

Deep down in his core, Weed’s first priority was avoiding.

The Bone Dragon got its head off the ground, readied its incomplete breath and fired.


Breath was fired toward the ground!

The land of ice below melted.

Using the recoil from its breath, it rose into the air and soared. Once in the air, breath began flooding everywhere.

It was extremely weaker than the first breath. Nevertheless, there was more than enough power left.

Up until now, the Geomchis and Dark Gamers had just barely dodged, now they were melting away.

The Geomchis as a last resort invigorated their energy by drinking the potions, but the potion essentially just granted a brief moment of stimulated health recovery rate.

The amount recovered by the potion could not compare to the health lost by the attack.

After the strong attack, the Geomchis were bound to weakened and could not cope with the life lost to the breath.

The Dark Gamers and Geomchis were the last remaining warriors responsible for direct combat.

First and foremost, Weed and Seoyoon noticed that there were only a few surviving Paladins that could heal themselves, so they quickly fled.

However, suspended in the air, the floating Bone Dragon appeared to have remaining reserve power.

"I will destroy everything! Demon Spear!"

A huge spear appeared in front of the Bone Dragon. (oh the irony)

However, compared to the Dark Spear Weed created, it was a higher level Black Magic!

The high ranked magic attack required at least the 3rd advancement in a Black Magic job.

It was very likely that due to the Bone Dragon using its breath up till now and virtually depleting its mana, it was now forced to use its best skill.

Weed did not forget to aim at the gap between the Bone Dragon’s wings and ribs.

The distance was enough to strike the idle monster.


The Demon Spear released a ferocious sound as it flew toward Weed.

A storm was left in the wake of the massive black spear.

Using its power of control, the Bone Dragon did not miss its target.


Weed stepped back and ran.

“Death Knight! Undead in front, block it!”

With few undead remaining, the crowd was useless.

They somehow managed to offset the power of the Demon Spear in an effort to survive, but the Demon Spear still pierced right through the bodies of the undead!

It appeared highly unlikely that the Death Knight and undead had enough defense to withstand the attack.

The perforated bodies of the undead vanished like dust.

“Sorry master!”

Even the Death Knight Van Hawk was reverse summoned.

The Demon Spear now approached virtually right in front of Weed.

‘Never thought I’d die twice in one day. Today’s really the worst day ever.’

Power from the Blood Necromancer, the power to reject death!

Its biggest weakness was emerging.

“Cold Sealed Eyes!”

Weed closed his eyes.

Finally, everything would end.

‘If I’m lucky maybe I’ll survive.’

But even after a few seconds, no pain was felt.

“Did it miss? Impossible.”

Weed opened his eyes. Then he saw the woman in front of him blocking.


She sacrificed her body to block the Demon Spear, but in exchange for that, Seoyoon was dying.

Weed took out his bandages in a hurry, but her life was already nearly exhausted.

No matter what the Bone Dragon used thus far, Seoyoon was able to withstand it.

However, with an anxious and impatient face, Seoyoon opened her mouth.

“Friend ……”

Doing something unimaginable!

Never in his dreams did Weed did think she would say that line.

‘Wasn’t she mute?’

Even Seoyoon herself gave a startled expression at the word.

As if coming from heaven itself, a clear and brilliant voice.

Weed then heard the voice of a stiff person.

    - Seoyoon has requested to register you as a friend. Will you accept?

Weed quickly nodded.


    -Seoyoon-nim has been registered as a friend.

It was only for a brief moment, but Seoyoon died with a rather relieved face.

When Seoyoon found out about the first breath the Bone Dragon emitted, part of heart seemed to collapse.

‘Weed. He’s dead.’

Actually, the time they spent together was not long, but her feelings quietly grew.

Looking at the sculptures he created, she discovered warmth.

Eating the food he created, she learned of a simple happiness.

Anywhere they stayed together, she was able to feel comfortable.

That was a friend.

Seoyoon knew Weed was dead because of the Bone Dragon, she did not know why she felt such a dense anger.

As expected of a Berserker, for the first time she surrendered her body to rage.

Without caring for her life, she attacked the Bone Dragon!

But somehow, Weed survived.

His shape changed a lot, but Geumini and the Wyverns that appeared alongside Weed were unmistakable.

From the sounds of the expedition crew, she heard the story as well.

‘You’re alive.’

Seoyoon herself felt a little joy. In a warm corner of her heart, she felt relived.

‘You needlessly worried.’

Blushing alone in vain, she silently devoted herself to the battle.

‘Anyway, I am not someone who can receive love. Again I’m not questing with others.’

In a corner of her mind and heart, she planned only to remain with Weed until the end of his quest where they would separate from each another.

From the start, it was the natural choice for someone like her unaccustomed to hanging out with others.

Such a conclusion had already been made.

But when the Demon Spear flew toward Weed, contrary to her thoughts, her body moved first.


Seoyoon blocked in front of Weed.

It was normal for her not to continue to fight after the critical hit from the Demon Spear.


Seoyoon had a premonition of death.

There was no regret about level or skill.

In any case, the gaining of such things was not even for hunting.

While hunting alone, she suffered countless deaths.

Access restricted for the day, because of the time, she changed and tried not to die if possible, eventually the fear of death itself disappeared.

If you died near villages or in caves, you would be conjured up in a safe zone. However, the problem was where that place is and where to go in order to find Weed.

‘To meet this person now and again is very unlikely. If by chance we don’t overlap in this vast land, I’ll be unable to see him. Eternal separation...’

Seoyoon was puzzled by her heart’s sudden disturbance.

Separation with someone.

Having believed she had not received love, she did not know eternally separating with someone would break her fragile heart.

She faced him. Then, unknowingly she said.


-Weed-nim has been registered as a friend.

Seoyoon came and took Weed by surprise, making him tremble in fear.

“What in the world was that evil woman doing there! She’s definitely up to something vile.”

It’s said that beautiful roses originally have thorns.

Seoyoon's level of beauty was comparable to the art of the century. The skin, body and face. A place where a flaw could be found did not exist.

Even her loosely flowing ebony hair exquisitely matched her fantastic figure.

No matter who, be it a painter or a poet could not skilfully express her charm. To properly depict the beauty and atmosphere she radiated was truly difficult.

Lightly loose hair down to her shoulders and clear skin, eyes, etc. it was impossible for anyone to keep their eyes off her face.

Weed on the other hand was concerned about the poison that matched her beauty.

“Until now she was able to speak but didn’t!”

There were numerous opportunities to speak, even when cooking or hunting, but so far, she had never so much as spoken a word, making the other party mistake her for a mute person.

“This must be a cruel trap. She will accuse me of ignoring her when she spoke and not doing something that I knew nothing about. Bad taste, such bad taste. How could there be a woman with such bad taste like this.”

Weed further raised his vigilance of Seoyoon.

“But why did she suddenly ask me to register her as a friend, why? So far, no deal had been made yet.”

Weed grew rapidly suspicious of her pure intentions.

Darkness, backstabbing, conspiracy, plotting or fraud, Weed thought of everything possible.

Suddenly, a sinister tactic passed through his mind.

“No way... that’s right! I knew it.”

Weed hit the palm of his hand after coming up with a solid reason.

“She said register friends right before she died! Female, you’ll have to find me first.”

Everyone drops items when they die. Weed believed that when Seoyoon died, she worried about her dropped items and assumed that by adding him as a friend, she could leave her things with him who would never lose or sell her stuff!

“That must be it. You’re a wicked woman.”

Weed once again trembled after suggesting how human beings employed such calculations in order to thrive.

Perhaps it was merely coincidence that the Demon Spear struck her. This place is the land of ice. It might have been bad luck and by chance she slipped on the earth, who knows! Weed closed his eyes at the end, making what he knew even more unknown.

“Deliberately sparing me on purpose because you believed you could afford to die and take advantage of me later. That’s right. No way was it a slip.”

To protect Weed was mostly Seoyoon's impulsive decision.

Weed did not see it that way and thought about why as he examined the place where Seoyoon died. He then observed the promised items that dropped!

“What the hell.”

At Seoyoon's gravesite was thick leather created from pork leather. It was Weed who made these clothes for the winter. Only this dropped.

“Unique items of high caliber didn’t even drop. So pitiful, when I try, I just don’t have any luck.”

Weed picked up the leather clothes while complaining. Then the Bone Dragon arrived to deliver mockery.

"O foolish and presumptuous man! This is your limit."

The Bone Dragon’s immense wings flapped as it floated in the sky! Heavy wind pressure struck the surrounding snow and cracked the ice into regions.

Weed, as well as the few remaining survivors of the expedition saw the power charge up within its stomach. The expedition crew was frustrated.

“Now we’re finished.”

“It’s nearly dead thanks to the priests and wizards, but we have no method of fighting the Bone Dragon while it’s flying in the sky.”

They felt thoroughly helpless.

“If not for the betrayal...”

Even when it was too late to regret, one could not help it!

Up till now, Weed created many undead from the ground.

Dulahan, Death Knight, Zombie, Ghoul, etc.

However, typical monsters are known to be of little help when fighting a Bone Dragon flying in the sky.

It was possible for Skeleton Mages to use magic, but they would not inflict any significant damage to the Bone Dragon.

The expedition felt desperate as they watched Weed. There was no one else that could fight.

“Go back to your origins. Return undead!”

Weed memorized the spell. All the undead struggled with the force of the earth as they lost their power and collapsed. The reason was to recover a source of mana.

The expedition believed Weed abandoned them, increasing their responsibility.

“Ah. Finally!”

“Unless you die, you’re not leaving.”

The Bone Dragon laughed at the ludicrous humans.

"Foolish human race! Feel the transgression of time!"

But it was then.

“Bone Dragon, has your mind still not noticed? Can you not see what is happening?”

Weed did not back down in the slightest as he taunted the Bone Dragon.

"It is ludicrous that I will meet my end here, who do you think you’re talking to?”

“You, you idiot!”

Weed aimed to intimidate the Bone Dragon with this.

To the Bone Dragon, terrified food was unnecessary.

Of course, it was recognized as a difficult to capture monster. Normally, it would be like hitting a rock with an egg.

The fight itself would never have been started!

But now the situation had changed a lot.

‘Due to the battle, its health has fallen below 20%. And with that multitude of spells, there should not be any mana remaining.’

There was no reason to panic.

Due to excessive loss of life, a significant amount of physical strength and power shall be reduced.

Apparently, it boasted of outrageous grandeur, when in fact, it had weakened significantly.

The fight felt worthwhile.

Weed cried out.

“Battle, Bingryong!”

Using Lion's Roar, Weed’s cry shook the Valley of Death.


Once again, the ice above the valley shattered and snow poured down.


And in response, a sky ripping scream was heard from far away.

Something was coming.

At first, it was thought of as a little bird, but it grew larger and larger in shape!


Enormous at a size of hundreds of meters, Bingryong emerged. It was almost as large as the Bone Dragon.

“Forward! Destroy him!”

On Weed’s command, Bingryong flew at a tremendous speed as it rushed the Bone Dragon.


Bingryong smashed into the Bone Dragon!

The Bone Dragon once hovering in the sky had fallen to the ground.

Bingryong welcomed the great opportunity!

However, Bingryong too wallowed on the ground.

Such a huge impact also weakened his condition.

"I’ll kill you."

"The owner has ordered to fight. I'll kill you!"

Bingryong and the Bone Dragon hated each other and fought fiercely.

The Bone Dragon was the first to attack.

As a skeleton with a large head, it took a bite out of Bingryong’s side.

Blindly shattering the ice into debris, the axial wings were finally injured.

Attack of the mighty Bone Dragon!

But that did not stop Bingryong. He slammed his hind legs and tail into the Bone Dragon’s body and recklessly slashed it with his front foot.


“Ahh! It hurts!”

The Bone Dragon screamed at Bingryong’s barrage. While his massive body was still up in the air, he bit and slashed his opponent.

The fighting between the two dragons turned the ground into tornado wreckage. Tremendous winds brought about a flurry of snow and ice as well as an earthquake that made standing up impossible.

Weed calmly watched the battle between the Bone Dragon and Bingryong.

‘The Bone Dragon has weakened.’

Bingryong’s power was strong enough to draw. Nevertheless, he was to some extent eager to fight the Bone Dragon simply because he was tired of waiting.

If the Bone Dragon was in perfect condition, it would have overwhelmed Bingryong in an instant by ripping his neck off.

‘The fight’s a simple matter of which side dies first.’

Weed was not the type to just sit back and watch.

“Wy-3! Come forth!”

“At once master!”

The Wyverns were not brave enough to dare stay around the perimeter of the Bone Dragon. They only came and accepted their fates as a ride to avoid dying by the hands of their master.

Weed climbed on top of the Wyvern.

“Fly. We fight.”

“Understood master!”

There was an emergency when they spread their wings. Weed inquired about it.

- Strength is reduced due to the cold.

The chill of the northern sky was too harsh to cope with. In the past, there was a severe cold as they hovered in the skies. But if they waited, it would be uncertain if they would be able kill the Bone Dragon.

‘Do not expect good luck. Fight yourself!’

Weed aboard the Wyverns recalled the Dark Spear.

To ensure the destruction of the Bone Dragon’s life, he directly involved himself in combat.

“Fly at full speed!”

Upon Weed’s command, the Wyverns flapped their wings even more violently.

Wind maddening!

Weed then viciously launched the Dark Spear towards the Bone Dragon’s ribs.

Piercing through the battlefield, it penetrated the wind barrier surrounding Bingryong and the Bone Dragon.


Tremendous resilience as sparks sprang up.

‘The source of the Bone Dragon’s life is its defense. Because of its tremendous defense and health, it will not die. If so, how can I kill him?’

Weed recalled from long ago when he learned the sword in the dojo.

“Lee Hyun, can you topple that tree so big that you cannot wrap your arms around it with your sword?”

At Ahn Hyundo’s question, Lee Hyun shook his head.

It was impossible.

No matter how sharp swords are, there is a limit to the thickness of trees before they can no longer be cut down.

Especially in the case of living trees, they have withstood dozens of ax methods.

Relatively light and dark weapons are not suitable for cutting wood.

“Slashing with a sword is... unreasonable I think.”

“Really? It is difficult but not impossible. Your elder brothers can do this. With a sword they can cut down huge trees. Among the trainees, it’s possible for about half of them?”

Lee Hyun’s head was puzzled.

“How is such a thing possible? No matter how good they are at wielding a sword, the strength required to accomplish such a task is unreasonable.”

“It’s cutting the grain of the wood.”


“In both heaven and earth, all things possess grain, so you simply cut along the flow. Without having to expend great strength, you can cut down anything you want. Even if it is rock or metal, as long as you cut along the grain, it is not difficult to cut it down.”

“I can do it too?”

“If you make the effort. A great sword is not born, it is tempered dozens of time. A sword alone is nothing, but a sword inscribed by people through decades of hardship can slash through anything in the world.”

Ahn Hyundo actively spoke of his past where he honed his sword proficiency directly from the battlefield during his youth.

Then by accident he came about a different story in Royal Road.

Ahn Hyundo burst into laughter.

“Royal Road, in the Versailles Continent, there are many interesting elements. We looked and found a similar result.”

“Are you telling me if you follow the grain, anything can be cut down?”

“It’s significantly different but yeah. After many experiences the best method we discovered was basically concentrating power on one spot.”

“I would like to know what you mean by this.”

Without hesitation Ahn Hyundo turned to tell Lee Hyun about Royal Road. You can wield a sword anywhere in that place. It was a virtual reality game that did not ignore this virtue.

It is written that swords are to protect oneself, discipline oneself and care for one’s family.

He knew why Lee Hyun played Royal Road, so there was no reason to condemn him.

“I’ll tell you. The way we wield the sword is different every time a monster receives damage. I believe you know this?”

“Yes, the power of the sword varies when cutting different areas.”

In Royal Road, you must directly move your body.

Because you have to move your body to wield the sword, damage is dependent on several factors.

Balanced stance and circumstances, power and speed, technique, attack and defense of the monster, are all major elements in determining damage along with numerous minor elements.

“Yes, that is the primary reason. Stats and level are important, but the way to deal maximum damage is through focus.”

“Would that be to attack a vital point?”

“That’s a decent way, but some have no vital point to strike. However, even the mightiest monsters are bound to succumb to cryptanalysis. Be warned, this method is not easily executed.”

Lee Hyun always had questions about the Geomchis’ outrageous attacks. No matter how similar a job was to martial artists, the damage was typically too strong to compare.

When their levels were around 50, they acquired the combat series job and quickly took hold of monsters forcing him to wonder. Lee Hyun asked.

“What is cryptanalysis?”

“Where you strike the same place over and over again.”

“That I know. When you continue to hit one part, you can cause slightly greater damage to some extent.”

He had obtained information on how to hunt before starting Royal Road. In other words, Lee Hyun had been using this method to battle relatively well. This secret could not be called special.

Ahn Hyundo simply laughed and spoke of the underlying story.

“Have you ever seen concentrating hits on a single point?”

“But that does not reap such a large effect. However, I’m sure there is another meaning to those words. Do you mean precisely hitting that one point again?”

“You’re quick to understand. The place once attacked, attack it again and it will severely weaken after. Smaller than a fingernail, smaller than a grain of rice, focus all attacks to that point. Even if you lack strength, you can still destroy the monster.”

Ahn Hyundo knew his teaching wasn’t something anybody could use. You must wield a weapon with all your might and attack a point smaller than a grain of rice repeatedly.

Even against nonmoving targets, there are times when you aren’t confident of success.

To target vigorously active monsters, you must predict and understand the relative movements in advance and at the decisive moment, you must align every action to explode simultaneously.

An exceptional human being, it is difficult to even dream of such a state.

Ahn Hyundo said this without hesitation.

“Tens of million of milliseconds. To bring the sword into combat, for life to vanish, the time is to be determined. At that one moment, it is not impossible to bring about your will. It is possible because human beings are not machines.”

  1. I know a lot of people who would beg to differ at that last line

  2. Its honestly starting to get annoying how he always twists everything Seoyoon does into something so horrible, something to watch out for. I swear if he ends up hurting her because hes so selfish and ignorant I might have to drop this completely.

    1. I agree with you. For someone so great at judging people (like he did with Oberon), he completly fails at judging Seoyoon.

    2. Well, think about it - The first time he met her, she was marked as a player killer. He saw her prowess at battle many times, enough to know she could kill him easily if he isn't careful. Seoyoon has also been silent this entire time. Intimidating because he knows only what he has Seen of her. With everyone else, it's easy to see their goals and temptations. Seoyoon's been a block o' ice.

      And lastly, Weed is a selfish, cruel, backstabbing bastard through living in a place where he was stomped down on by similar people. It's WEIRD for Seoyoon to be as gentle as we know her to be, in Weed's eyes. It's counterproductive. Stupid. Who would do that?

    3. Selectively delusional is a trait of his character. You should be use to it by now.

    4. Weed looks like human ONLY when he make his sculptures
      but most of the time he is paranoid greedy goblin

    5. Personally I like weeds character it's refreshing after the typical hero

    6. Look, weed isn't psychic. You aren't going to understand people if they aren't even trying to communicate. Seoyoon should open up

    7. Seoyoon is opening up.. but it's not like she can do it instantly, she herself lost trust in people.

      The problem with weed is that he keeps twisting things around her EVERY TIME. It gets annoying after awhile after all they've been through. And yes.. you can understand people even if they don't speak. He understood her, but then he twists it around thinking it's some evil plan.

    8. It will get better. MUCH better. He will not hurt Seoyoon.

    9. i agree with the ones saying weed is twisted and 'broken'(in the best way ^^) and that is why he thinks of her like that, but ........ she slipped into the bone dragons spear attack? thats his line of thought? really? theres twisted and then theres dense! (not love-dense but idiot-dense)
      to further my point, imagine a "tom and jerry" routine where the badass berserk seoyoon slips and falls and slams into walls because of the ice ... and then somehow ends up right in the path of the fast moving dragons spear close to weed ... you know, like slipping into a bullet ... you would be suprised how often that happens .... it happend to me just yesterday! (ok. ill stop here ^^ but if someone could write a plausible way for that slip to make sense ill bow my head in real life and text and call you my master once! ^^)

    10. Indeed, Weed is frigging annoying that way. The only reason he thinks she's a threat, is because the author thinks it is funny.

      Keeping a character forcibly retarded, just to play a joke that does not even work, is beyond annoying.
      But some of you said it gets better, so all I have to do is to skip all of his rambling bullshit nonsensical idiocy.

    11. Solution: Stop reading and Write your own story that will satisfy you.

    12. He does it on purpose so that he can ignore the fact that he has a crush on her

    13. LMAO! Jeez, you guys are failing to realize the only reason you are acting defensively of Seoyoon is because the author shows us her life outside the game as well as her thoughts and emotions while playing. Does Weed see any of that? No.

    14. @Unknown He doesn't have to see her life to understand her. He's clearly good at understanding people and shit he just refuses to make an effort to understand her. He actively goes out of his way to see her acts of kindness as 'wickedness' like that time she saved him from dying to cold and he called her an evil witch. Its a running gag that got old way too fast.

    15. Surely Author is making weed as awfully wicked person...I mean how can a person think think like that when someone gave her life him just before his eyes and that same person did her best to cure him from severe coldness.........damn it...

  3. Friend and Dragons, OK Last one, one more chapter! soo late

    1. I will stop when my mouse breaks!

    2. Do you really have to write : "One more!" every single chapter?

    3. its already there before u were here so it dont matter

    4. Indeed 1 more chapter (i have been reading since 5PM welp)

  4. Sometime i wish i dont read his thought cause its so annoying.

  5. bad chatper, half of it Weeds selfish thoughts about Seoyoon and other half explanation about some ..... FALCON PUNCH out of nowhere

    1. Weed, You DENSE MOTHERFUCKER!!!!

    2. Yup.
      I skip. I skip everything.

    3. Lol yup I skiped everything the only part I read was the part Seoyoon died :(. Everything else is a blur

  6. "55 Geomchis were still alive. With life surpassing that of cockroaches, they survived the battle with the monsters."


  7. I almost thought that Weed would put out some tear drops when Seoyoon died for him. And his thought shocks me. Fuking lucky bastard!

  8. weed, you are a god damn idiot when it comes to seoyoon

    1. what do you expect when seoyoon herself never talked, and was first introduced as a player killer, as well as being a very strong person, very few traits were revealed to weed, so with his amazing ethics score, he found the "obvious" answer to why seoyoon acted as she did, hence, his failing ethics score

    2. zubhanwc3, you're dead wrong.
      If what you say is true, Weed would not be able to properly convey Seoyoon's feelings into his sculptures. Numerous parts in the story showed that Weed truly got how tranquil and selfless Seoyoon is, that she's not a dangerous person.
      The only reason Weed keeps on with his mindless cowardly paranoia, even though he's fearless in front of any other existence in the universe, is because the author thought that it'd be funny.

      "Heuheu Hyun is scord of lil' goil, such misunderstanding humorz! Heuheuheuhe!"
      There was even a moment in the story in which Weed professed: "This is superficial! I need to get beyond my shallow understanding of Seoyoon to properly convey her! I need to truly understand her!"

      And he did.
      But then he relapsed back to stupid, shallow thinking. Why?
      Because: "Heuheue sooooo funny".

      Again: UGH.

    3. I love you, the anon right above me. But I have a slightly different view which isn't that less Ugh-ish: He's obviously trying so hard to not fall for her even though he saw so much. Basically he's afraid of having a gf coz he never had one. Plus he thinks women = wasting money.
      Though little does he know that she has ten times his puny wealth..

  9. Fucking stupid greedy Weed!

  10. umm what happened to the weak point of bone dragon which was hinted in his necromancer tome in previous chapters??? And is it me or is Weed trying to delude himself that hez head over heels on seoyoon, and trying desperately to deny it by being neurotic and making her into evil women out for revenge?

    1. Yeah I think that's the most plausible answer when it comes to the seoyoon thing. Think about it, all last volume he unknowingly did so many things out of charecter just to win her favor

      - He gave away food to an entire village for free(if seoyoon was not there he would have at least charged them some copper)

      - He tried to look cool by riding a huge dragon in front of her (even when he goes into towns he wears his poorest cloths especially if there’s beggars)

      - When he was obviously trying to impress her with music he had enough common sense not to sing

      - And He even gets most delighted when she enjoys his food

      So yeah he's clearly into her. The problem is that he sees romance as money flying free from his pockets. If he was to acknowledge all the good seoyoon has done on his behalf it be the same as acknowledging that there is the possibility that a relationship of a romatic nature could be formed and weed is scared of what that would mean. (i.e. empty pokcets)

    2. He's attracted to her, but he's scared of her too. But Jesus, calling her a vile evil woman after she died for him is just a bit too much. For a money grubber like him, especially.

  11. whatever the reason is, I blame the author...the author clearly not able to make the condition much more romantic...the author is good enough to create the situation, but fail to develop it to a more romantic condition...I am not really into romantic novel, but having read this novel, I aspect more from the romantic element as it is already there complimenting the plot....its kinda like a half-ass effort from the author to increase what he/she himself/herself had develop

    1. No, I disagree the athour is writing a wonderful story and stays true to the charecter of weed that he has been devloping all these volumes even if its pianful to the reader. It is in no way half assed. Full asses were defintly used, to the point where now theres an ass famine. Beggars be beggan for that ass but it is nowhere to be found

  12. I read this is 8 minutes

  13. Sorry, read a lot of the comments and the hate against weed for twisting seoyoon's action into something completely different, but I'd just like to point out something. Think of weed's background. His essentially groomed himself from the bottom up to be utterly self sufficient and isolated, focused on money and nothing but money. Think about the treatment he received at the hands of profiteering employees that refused to even acknowledge a child was sick and close to starving. Does that sound like a healthy child hood to you? No it wasn't. The end result is what we see before us, he is utterly and perfectly confident in his actions and ability to farm money, his resilience and determination is also no joke, but beneath that you can see a crippling sense of self doubt when it comes to being loved by someone outside his immediate family. From the way he can see seoyoon's as some one unbelievably beautiful, understand her deepest wish to smile and sculpt it, it is easy to infer that he knows she is a good and kind person deep down. Therefore from that we can make an inference, his lousy perception of her is one of his ways of stopping himself from opening up. as he is right now, with a average face and terrible lifestyle, letting himself have feelings for her, for someone as perfect and skillful as her, and telling her that is about as financially beneficial as jumping off a cliff. It's much easier to deceive himself and believe that she is evil is it not? It's clear to me that he's afraid she will realize what he really feels about this, and yet sometimes, those feelings breakthrough as seen by the warm lovers sculpture and his taking care of her, although he disguised it as something else.

  14. “What is cryptanalysis?”
    “Where you strike the same place over and over again.”

    Translator my friend, there is silly mistakes such as what you may have sometime done until now, and there is absolutly awful ignorance of the world! Cryptanalysis has absolutly nothing to do with hitting something, or even with sword or violence ! Go read wiki sometimes!

  15. So let me get this straight,in the beggining of the fight,after a few attacks the dragon's health dropped to 74% and mana 21% or something.After all the sh*t with betrayal and chaos and even though Seoyoon attacked the dragon for a long period of time plus Weed's dark spear and all the other sh*t the others did the bone dragon still has 20% life and can still fly even though Weed damaged one wing.Not to mention that dark spear is a high level black magic spell,and some wizards used mana burn on the dragon before he used black spear,and the bone dragon still flies up and uses a f*cking dark spear magic attack.

    1. It's a skeletal dragon. The wings are pretty decorative. Also, Mana burn and the like were from fewer players while the initial fight was from a large host attacking. It's not a boss monster of an A class quest for nothing.

  16. Guys please understand it from weed or lee hyun point of view. since young he chased by loan shark, worked while underaged also abused by his employer and co-worker. thats why he never fully trust anyone except his own family. even pale and co.

  17. These comments above are all fairly equal arguments ( about Seoyoon and Weed ) but I hope that she will be able to come back and finish the quest and not just weed do it by himself....

  18. "...her ebony hair..."

    Wait, what? Wasn't she a redhead? Last three tomes are even more inconsistant than the ones prior.

    1. When was she EVER a redhead. It's pretty clear that she used the same appearance without editing it, so unless Koreans are born with red hair, there's no chance.

  19. Although it leaves a bad taste, it's a reasonable assumption that she registered him as a friend to get her drops back. But it's pushing it to call her vile and evil for that.

  20. This comment has been removed by the author.

  21. I keep seeing him get upset because he knows she has killed players, but... he did too. Even ignoring that it's just a game and pking would be common and is clearly encouraged by having players drop items when they die, the hypocrisy is ridiculous. He keeps calling her a murderer, but he killed that one dude from the pking group. He hadn't even been attacked yet!

    He would've been attacked, but it doesn't change that our MC is being a complete **** about something that he is objectively guilty of.

    And he's also a complete idiot... as this whole chapter yet again reinforces.
