22. Scream Raven (3)
On average, other hunters obtained their first skill around level 10, the second skill between level 30 and level 40, and the third skill between level 50 and level 60.
Unlike Ye-Hyeon, exceeding level 10, level 30, and level 50 were the lowest conditions for learning initial skills.
The status window did not say anything, so this was only Ye-Hyeon’s prediction.
All three exceeded level 30, so it was time to learn their second initial skills.
‘I think I’m the only one at a disadvantage!’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
Ye-Hyeon was envious inside, but he pretended not to be.
Ye-Hyeon doesn’t know anything but wants to increase his vitality and mana if he raises his level.
‘But Baek Hae-Won keeps using only one skill. It used only A-class “living flame,” not S-class “Hell Fire.”
While living as a hunter, Ye-Hyeon gained new skills, but it was crucial to know the initial skills.
Early skills were safe to say Hunter’s identity.
Dungeons in the gate were not dungeons in the game.
It was a life-or-death battlefield.
Rather than considering efficiency, it was necessary to do his best.
In other words, rather than using weak skills to save Mana a little, even if he wasted his potion, he had to kill the monster for sure to survive.
As the moment’s carelessness became fatal as they went to the top gate, senior hunters habitually used higher-grade and more powerful skills.
Baek Hae-Won never used the “Hell Fire” even though he might make a little mistake.
‘Is it because the monster is too weak?’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
Ye-Hyeon checked Baek Hae-Won’s list of skills that he had put aside.
‘Let’s see.’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
‘There’s a B-class Magma Field, a C-class Flame Exploitation, and a D-class Fireball. What? You only have attack skills except for the flame immune passive of the initial skill. Baek Hae-Won has all flame-based attack skills. There were no skills related to mana regeneration or skills commonly learned by wizards. Wait. S-class ‘Soul Transfer’? What skill is this? It’s an S-class skill, but why is it in the back?’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
The Status Window is arranged in the order of high grades.
Ye-Hyeon glanced at the situation.
Scream Raven, hit by Shin Do-Gyeom’s arrow, fell to the ground.
When Choi Ye-Hyeon tried to check Baek Hae-Won’s information confidently, a black shadow flew from the top of the mountain toward the party at a rapid pace.
It was so big that Ye-Hyeon thought two birds were flying together, but when Ye-Hyeon saw it closer, it was one.
It was 1.5 times bigger than other Scream Ravens.
“What? Why is it so big? Is it the boss?”
“No, It is not the boss.”
Baek Hae-Won muttered in an embarrassed voice to Yoon Seung-Jae’s question.
Ye-Hyeon stuck his head to the side of the rock and looked at the monster.
It was small to be a boss or a middle boss and half-sized to be a regular monster.
Ye-Hyeon wanted to check the Status Window of the monster, but it didn’t open because it was too far away.
“Once it came near….”
It seemed like Baek Hae-Won was going to use ‘Hellfire’ this time.
It is still far from the range of attacks by ordinary Scream Ravens. When the huge Scream Raven suddenly opened its beaks and howled loudly enough to make the entire mountain roar.
Without a moment of wonder, Ye-Hyeon staggered as he wrapped his arms around his ears.
It wasn’t just loud. Ye-Hyeon felt a strong shock like he is physically hit on the head.
There was intense tinnitus.
He was out of focus.
The whole body felt paralyzed.
As Ye-Hyeon blinked, a blue Status Window came to mind.
‘Status Abnormal: tinnitus.’
[Time Left: 00 hours and 29 minutes]
That ridiculous monsters that cause abnormal conditions only appeared at gates above B.
Even in Class B, it is hard for a boss-class monster to do. It was safe to say that it was a monster of a class A gate with more than a debuff skill.
It was ridiculous for Scream Raven to put more debuff conditions.
Ye-Hyeon tried to come to his senses somehow by touching his forehead.
The tinnitus lasted short, but it was dangerous because it destroyed one of the five senses.
In particular, tinnitus caused a sharp drop in concentration, which was fatal to long-distance dealers such as wizards and archers.
Ye-Hyeon leaned his shoulder against the rock and barely managed to balance it and looked at the party members.
Ye-Hyeon, who was far away, stopped at tinnitus, but other party members were bleeding from their ears.
“My eardrum seemed to be damaged!”
“Ah, ah! What’s wrong with you? Aah!”
Yoon Seung-Jae screamed in panic as he couldn’t hear anything at all.
According to what Ye-Hyeon saw from the side, Yoon Seung-Jae was a type that relied on hearing more than other senses.
Scream Raven ran straight to Yoon Seung-Jae, who was at the front.
Ye-Hyeon shouted without realizing it, knowing that Yoon Seung-Jae could not hear.
At the same time, Baek Hae-Won shouted urgently and raised his arm again, but the fingertips shook unsteadily.
It may be an illusion, but Baek Hae-Won’s appearance, with one eye glaring, looked scared at first glance.
Perhaps because of the tinnitus, Baek Hae-Won could hardly use magic and hesitated.
“What are you doing?”
Ye-Hyeon clenched his teeth and hit the rock with his fist.
Scream Raven approached Yoon Seung-Jae’s head without realizing it.
It seemed that the spreading claws would soon tear Yoon Seung-Jae apart.
Kwon Joo-Ho could not keep his balance after the tearful cry and almost fell, but he blocked Scream Raven’s toenails with a sword.
Kwon Joo-Ho almost dropped the sword.
Kwon Joo-Ho could not hold the sword properly and stepped back with the sword hanging down.
Shin Do-Gyeom held up his bow as if he would not lose.
The longbow dangerously tilted as if it would fall to the floor at any moment.
However, even if he shoots carefully, the hit rate is not high, and the blind arrow cannot reach the monster properly.
Yoon Seung-Jae, who barely regained his composure thanks to Kwon Joo-Ho and Shin Do-Gyeom buying time, grabbed the shield firmly and confronted Scream Raven.
Perhaps because Ye-Hyeon couldn’t hear the way he spoke.
The giant Scream Raven screamed and fluttered its wings.
Ye-Hyeon thought it would fly again, but it jumped high and rushed straight to Yoon Seung-Jae.
Yoon Seung-Jae stumbled loudly with just one attack.
Yoon Seung-Jae held the shield tighter and lowered his posture but failed to withstand the second collision and flew away.
Yoon Seung-Jae, who floated high, crashed into the ground with a loud sound.
Ye-Hyeon took a step forward without realizing it.
Ye-Hyeon wanted to throw a potion at Yoon Seung-Jae.
The potion in Ye-Hyeon’s inventory was handmade, although it was a lower potion.
The effect was different from the mass-produced potions sold in general stores.
Tankers were often injured due to their role.
The rate of fatal injuries was relatively higher for dealers, but the tanker always lived with minor wounds, which was even called the Tanker’s medal.
If he were a supporter, he would have been hiding with his breath as if he were dead.
Ye-Hyeon measured the extent of the hunters’ injuries in a clerical manner and went out only when necessary.
If Ye-Hyeon intervened in the battle half-heartedly, he would only be an obstacle.
However, Ye-Hyeon was worried that Yoon Seung-Jae would be hurt, so he moved unconsciously.
It was because Ye-Hyeon became attached.
If there is something that Ye-Hyeon did not expect, the scope of perception of the giant Scream Raven exceeded common sense.
Scream Raven, who blew Yoon Seung-Jae like a piece of paper, flew high into the sky in reaction.
It turned its head in search of the next target.
Kwon Joo-Ho and Shin Do-Gyeom, trying to run out to attract Scream Raven’s Aggro, paused, conscious of each other.
In the short gap between misfortune, unfortunately, Ye-Hyeon jumped.
Scream Raven saw its prey, stretched out his wings, and rushed toward Ye-Hyeon at a breakneck speed.
Ye-Hyeon started running away without looking back.
I have exam coming tomorrow and next week so I’m sorry if I won’t be able to update. Pray for my exam and Ye-Hyeon’s well being.
