In the early morning, Ye-Hyeon packed his luggage and headed to the meeting place.
There were gatherings for hunters all over Seoul.
The assembly hall was equipped with facilities for gate participation, starting with a changing room and a locker and then a gate checker boarding area.
It was small, but there were also some stores.
Of course, it was more expensive.
As you must visit Hunter Market regularly to purchase consumables, accommodation, naturally attached to Hunter Market, was the most popular.
Even if Ye-Hyeon couldn’t stay at the best place, Ye-Hyeon had to be a B-class hunter to apply.
Can he live in the number 1 accommodation this time?
But he’s a healer!
Ye-Hyeon entered the innermost part of the assembly hall with wild thoughts.
It was a fixed party so Ye-Hyeon could rent a small detached house with a dressing room and a conference room for a long time.
“You’re in last place.”
When Ye-Hyeon came out of the changing room, Yoon Seung-Jae approached him with a touch and played a prank instead of greeting him.
The silver armor glistened brilliantly as if it had been polished hard.
“We still have 5 minutes left.”
Ye-Hyeon took his seat lightly.
Kwon Joo-Ho and Shin Do-Gyeom were sitting at the corners of the square table.
Yoon Seung-Jae, who sat next to him as if it were natural, looked at Ye-Hyeon’s hair and smiled.
Ye-Hyeon, contemplating for a long time in the morning, made a compromise by revealing only half of his forehead. He turned his eyes away without knowing why Yoon Seung-Jae laughed.
“By the way, we need to get more party members just in case….”
“I’m looking into it, but it was difficult to find a potential hunter after leaving the class D hunter dormitory. As we monopolized one route, we didn’t have many opportunities to meet another hunter. There is also a way to meet hunters through the Hunter Community, but most were usually half-baked hunters.”
“But having one long range-dealer seems okay.”
Because Yoon Seung-Jae and Kwon Joo-Ho are already doing well, the advantage was more significant than the disadvantage of two long-distance dealers.
“First of all, the person would have a high degree of freedom of attack because the distance did not sway him, and it seemed easy to cope with unexpected situations due to his wider view than a close-range dealer.”
“No, don’t get me wrong.”
Baek Hae-Won had no weakness in the eyes of Ye-Hyeon, who had been watching the battle of countless hunters, saying,
“It’s not that I like the two having two more long range-dealers, but it’s just that Baek Hae-Won is a monster.”
The word “all-around beauty” seemed to exist for Baek Hae-Won.
He can cover all directions because it is Baek Hae-Won, an out-of-standard player, and in general, two long-distance dealers may have an excellent offense. Still, their stability was significantly reduced after the battle line was disrupted.
There was a reason for preferring close dealers.
“I’m thinking of going into this dungeon with other hunters.”
Baek Hae-Won carefully opened the subject.
Yoon Seung-Jae seemed dissatisfied with having to cooperate with other hunters.
“We are going deal with a difficult monster. It’s a monster called Scream Raven.”
Ye-Hyeon sighed at the name he knew so well.
Baek Hae-Won made eye contact with Ye-Hyeon.
“Do you know Ye-Hyeon?”
“I’ve seen him at the Hunter’s Community.”
“Scream Raven? What is it?”
Yoon Seung-Jae, who is impatient, urged him by shaking him.
Scream Raven is a crow-shaped monster with a long pointed beak, and it was huge enough to be nearly 5m long from one wing end to the other.
As its name suggests, it makes a scream-like cry, and although it doesn’t cause any abnormal debuff, it is a unique monster whose stamina could cause a hunter’s stamina to be depleted after they heard its cry.
“Are we going to take on Scream Raven already?”
Scream Raven was also called the ‘Death Crow’ or ‘New Hunter Killer’ because it was the most challenging flying type to deal with and difficult to cope with crying attacks.
Another name was the ‘C-class gatekeeper.’
If they could clear the gate where Scream Raven comes out safely, it meant that he was good enough to challenge the B-class gate.
It’s only been a month since Ye-Hyeon experienced a proper battle, and it was dangerous to deal with Scream Raven, no matter how much experience they had.
“Is he a difficult opponent without other Hunter’s help?”
Shin Do-Gyeom was the only one who treated Baek Hae-Won with courtesy.
Because he recognized Baek Hae-Won’s ability, Ye-Hyeon envied Baek Hae-Won at heart.
“Well, no. It’s possible enough. But it’s too dangerous. Scream Raven is at a different level than other monsters so far.”
His opinion of the party was more generous than Ye-Hyeon thought.
Ye-Hyeon only guessed from the information written in the status window.
Baek Hae-Won, who trained with them, seemed to show the shining talents of the three.
“Then you don’t have to go with another hunter.”
Yoon Seung-Jae, excited by the compliment, suddenly intervened.
His eyes twinkled as if he had the desire to win.
Ye-Hyeon sighed inside.
This is what S-class is like.
The most important thing for Ye-Hyeon was to survive.
Not only Ye-Hyeon but also most hunters were sensitive to safety.
On the other hand, S-class hunters preferred a faster route even at risk and enjoyed anxiety stemming from uncertainty.
Ye-Hyeon knows that if he settles for the present, he can’t go to a higher place. He couldn’t understand if he had to walk that path even as he risks his life.
S-class hunters seemed to have a different way of thinking than ordinary people.
Ye-Hyeon wanted to oppose it.
However, Ye-Hyeon had a clear goal.
No matter what happens, Ye-Hyeon has no choice but to force himself to walk in step.
Ye-Hyeon lowered his eyes with a determined expression.
“Did I ask something useless?”
Baek Hae-Won, who looked around, smiled satisfactorily.
The crow’s unique low, piercing cry echoed throughout the rocky mountain.
“Oh, when is that coming down?”
Yoon Seung-Jae raised the shield over his head in a tantrum.
Two Scream Ravens circled in the air around Yoon Seung-Jae and cried constantly.
Shin Do-Gyeom aimed at a Scream Raven’s head.
However, Shin Do-Gyeom’s arrow, which still has only passive skills, lacked penetration.
The arrow, flying straight, lost its strength and plummeted down when the Scream Raven flapped.
Shin Do-Gyeom bit his lip tightly.
Close dealer Kwon Joo-Ho could not hit the Scream Raven in the sky.
Scream Raven originally swarmed around in groups of ten.
It was not clearing the dungeon but wiping out the remaining monsters after clearing. Even though there were only two, the party failed to attack properly and struggled for a long time.
Ye-Hyeon, hiding behind the rock, could not withstand the continuous crying attack and covered his ears with his palm.
His vitality has been slashed away.
Ye-Hyeon hurriedly swallowed a potion.
If the unilateral war of attrition continues, his potion will soon run out.
Ye-Hyeon’s party had a healer, so the number of potions he carried was significantly small.
Ye-Hyeon tried ‘Healing Light’ as a test a while ago, but it didn’t recover.
The vitality cut by Scream Raven’s cry did not seem to be recognized as a wound.
Ye-Hyeon opened the inventory.
There was enough vitality recovery potential, but it was still too early to reveal the “Inventory” skill.
“Don’t stop thinking. What is the Scream Raven’s weakness? What should we do if we can’t attack?”
Baek Hae-Won could have burned Scream Raven’s wings just by flicking his finger, but instead of giving direct answers, he taught Ye-Hyeon how to find answers.
“The downside of Scream Raven is….”
“I can’t hear you. Say it properly.”
“As the body is huge, it is difficult to fly again once it comes down to the ground. Glossy black feathers are strong in water but weak in the fire.”
Ye-Hyeon, pointing out its shortcomings one by one, recalled the “Lapis of Despair” he faced at the S-class super-large gate.
“You have to drop it to the floor first,” he raised his head.
At that time, Yoon Seung-Jae put down his shield and picked up a large stone.
While Ye-Hyeon was shocked, Yoon Seung-Jae began to spin in place.
“Oh my god.”
Soon, Yoon Seung-Jae threw a rock at Scream Raven, who was flying in the air with all his might.
It was so powerful that even Ye-Hyeon, who knew it was strong, was surprised.
The Scream Raven spread his wings wide and moved quickly to avoid flying stones.
Shin Do-Gyeom shoots an arrow into the wing without missing a chance. The monster forgot to flap its wings due to the wind.
“Caw! Caw! Caw!”
The Scream Raven wriggled its torso in pain.
The movement of the wings became dull.
As the wind weakened, Shin Do-Gyeom used arrows one after another.
Scream Raven, hit by arrows several times, couldn’t balance and shook around, eventually falling to the floor.
Kwon Joo-Ho climbed onto the monster’s back on a tilted wing and wielded the sword mercilessly before the Scream Raven’s body even touched the ground.
It was so fast that Ye-Hyeon almost didn’t realize how it fell.
“As expected, S-class is S-class.”
Ye-Hyeon was purely impressed.
Because it was far away, Ye-Hyeon could see at a glance that Baek Hae-Won’s momentum changed rapidly before and after the advice.
At first, he stuttered because he didn’t know where to attack and how to attack, and at once, he realized what he had to do.
No one was scared or embarrassed, even when the battle was not going smoothly.
Ye-Hyeon wondered if it was simply courageous or if he was just confident enough to paralyze other emotions.
