27. Medium gate sweep (4)
The long-distance dealer stared foolishly at Ye-Hyeon as if he didn’t understand the meaning.
“Oh, our rookie healer is still out of touch with the world. A strong person means a veteran like us.”
The tanker, who was eavesdropping on the conversation nearby, interrupted the conversation with a sly smile. Now that Ye-Hyeon sees it, it was the guy who got in trouble for interrupting Lee Young-Shin.
‘C-level, did a veteran participate in the sweep, not even a clear attack?’
Not all of them are veterans just because they go in and out of the gate a lot. He could be called a veteran only when he had enough experience and the right skills.
‘I am an F rank following A rankers to gates.’
Ye-Hyeon didn’t want to see them condescending as if they were something when they didn’t have the guts to take risks. Ye-Hyeon turned his back on the two people.
“We will enter the combat zone. Please proceed with the battle according to my command.”
Baek Hae-Won, who finished the briefing calmly, smiled at Ye-Hyeon just before leaving the starting area.
“Show us your skills.”
Baek Hae-won patted Yoon Seung-Jae on the shoulder and said meaningfully.
‘…… I think he heard me.’
Ye-Hyeon pulled his earlobes for no reason to endure embarrassment.
In the field of over three meters of flowers and grass. Ye-Hyeon felt as if his body had shrunk.
Unlike Class A and B mid-sized gates, which are noticeably stronger not only for bosses and intermediate bosses but also for regular monsters, Class C mid-sized gates were not much different from small gates. More monsters poured out and only needed more people.
Of course, C-class medium-sized gates also make boss-class monsters a little more difficult, but there was no difference as they cleared the sweep and handled only the remaining regular monsters.
“I see 30 ahead.”
A hybrid monster mixed with butterflies and bees, Fly bees, swarmed into a flock with a loud noise. Every time a Fly bee flapped, a bee sting resembling steel flashed.
Fly bees fly irregularly here and there, making it difficult to predict the route, and it was disadvantageous to Hunter because of the giant grass blocking their view. On top of that, 30 were a lot for wiping out.
With Baek Hae-Won’s order, Yoon Seung-Jae, who held the shield high, advanced. When Yoon Seung-Jae attracted their aggro and ran to the side, all the monsters changed direction and flew following Yoon Seung-Jae.
“Did he provoke every single fly bee?”
Someone murmured from the two parties waiting behind.
Fly bee was notorious for being a monster that is difficult to attract aggro. It would have been quite uncomfortable to deal with if the offense had been slightly higher.
What provocation. It’s just a sword and a shield covered with honey.’
Ye-Hyeon smiled. Last time, Ye-Hyeon secretly informed Yoon Seung-Jae when dealing with the Fly bee.
Of course, it wasn’t all about honey. To maintain the Fly bee’s aggro, he had to move nonstop at a speed that was neither too fast nor too slow. Yoon Seung-Jae managed to lure Fly bee with just the right speed.
When Yoon Seung-Jae moved to a place with few obstacles, Kwon Joo-ho dug into the fly bee without hesitation. Kwon Joo-Ho’s “Sword of Despair” skill increased its power more when it was one-to-many than one-to-one.
Kwon Joo-Ho gently went through the fly bee-like flowing water. When Kwon Joo-ho passed by, Fly bee’s body, which was broken in two, it fell like rain.
Seeing that the blade of the sword shines slightly, the skill level has improved a little. Although Ye-Hyeon has never seen it, he said that if he completely mastered the “sword of despair,” the sword would shine with blood color.
Shin Do-Gyeom shot an arrow a. The green arrow penetrated the fly bee crowd.
“Splitting the sky.” As the name of the skill suggests, the space, which used to be a monster, split straight.
He watched ‘Splitting the Sky’ in succession.
It was more of a massacre than a battle. Within minutes, as many as 30 Flybees were wiped out.
“It’s ridiculous. Can you kill them all at once?”
“Didn’t they say they are new hunters?”
The hunters who were watching burst into admiration.
Ye-Hyeon, who was happily watching other hunters’ reactions, made eye contact with the tanker, which was noisy because he was a veteran.
“Did you see it? Did you see it?”
Instead of asking nicely, Ye-Hyeon smiled lightly as if this was nothing.
“What is this?”
When Kwon Joo-Ho cut off the last flyby, the close dealer of the second party muttered dejectedly.
In general, it was the norm to divide the monsters in order of two parties, then three parties if one party took the right number of monsters and left out.
However, Ye-Hyeon’s party wiped out Fly bee without the help of a second or third party.
They didn’t succeed once by chance, but after that, they killed every monster that appeared, so the other hunters were not doing anything. They were just sucking their fingers while watching.
Even if the first few groups of monsters were enough to show off their skills, the four, including Baek Hae-Won, did not leave a single one at all.
‘Are they angry because they were ignored as a new hunter? That’s right. They should be angry when someone despises them. They deserve it anyways..’
Ye-Hyeon shook his head.
Ye-Hyeon, watching the battle of the four people from the side, was more interested that Shin Do-Gyeom and Kwon Joo-Ho never bumped into each other.
At first, he thought it was because they were now exchanging opinions, but soon he felt a strange sense of incompatibility. Looking closely, it was divided in half when Yoon Seung-Jae drove the fly bee in a circle. Kwon Joo-ho took charge of the left, and Shin Do-Gyeom took control of the right half, so they each finished it separately.
No matter how relaxed he was in dealing with ordinary monsters in the C-class dungeon, it was an inefficient way that a hunter with proper common sense would not implement. It was ridiculous.
Still, it was noticeable that they were more conscious of each other in a positive way than when fighting.
When the break began, Ye-Hyeon sneaked up on Baek Hae-won, who was sitting down and resting.
“You chose a dungeon with monsters you can handle at once, right? That’s why you pushed everyone to the first party.” Ye-Hyeon asked Baek Hae-won quietly, looking around. No matter how much he thinks about it, it was the best condition for Ye-Hyeon’s party to act as if it was intentionally planned.
In the last battle just before the break, some of Lee Young-Shin’s group couldn’t stand it and stormed in.
If it had been a medium-sized monster, there might have been a chance for another hunter to touch it before Kwon Joo-Ho or Shin Do-Gyeom. However, the target was Fly Bee, who had a weak defense, and Kwon Joo-ho and Shin Do-Gyeom caught the monsters that the hunters aimed at first as if they were teasing.
“I just organized the party as efficiently as possible.”
Baek Hae-Won shrugged his shoulders, pretending to be innocent.
Ye-Hyeon gave Baek Hae-Won a playful glance. In the end, he was brazen, as if he had burned a monster that another long-distance dealer almost killed.
Baek Hae-Won must have been trying to motivate party members who had been depressed since the accident. H wouldn’t have expected Shin Do-Gyeom to get a new skill in a week.
There was a sudden increase in the fighting power of the party, and it felt like things got bigger as he got entangled with Lee Young-Shin.
He felt exhilarated. The hunters belittled them as new hunters saw how cleanly they fought and swept monsters.
Now the eyes of yearning poured out from all sides. Among them, there were quite a few toward Ye-Hyeon.
Hunters wanted to talk to Ye-Hyeon at least once, so they hovered around. However, Ye-Hyeon lowered his eyes as if he didn’t see it.
He thought he would be proud if he were the object of envy. It would be a lie to say he is not happy, but he wasn’t very happy with the passionate eyes looking at me.
‘I’m still the same….’
The only thing that changed for Ye-Hyeon was that he had one more skill. Perhaps it was because he was twisted with an inferiority complex, but it was still difficult to accept the change positively.
“I’ll be back over there.”
When Baek Hae-Won was away, one of Lee Young-Shin’s group approached him. It was that tanker again.
“Healer, give me a treatment.”
“Where is it?”
Ye-Hyeon stood up and tried to check the wound, but Yoon Seung-Jae, next to him, pressed his shoulder and sat him down again. Ye-Hyeon suddenly sat again on the floor and looked up at Yoon Seung-Jae.
Yoon Seung-Jae was looking at the Tanker, not Ye-Hyeon.
“It’s nothing, and you’re exaggerating.”
“What? What are you talking about?”
Yoon Seung-Jae’s murmur, which was loud to hear, angered the tanker.
“No, I haven’t finished speaking yet. Don’t you have a potion? Why don’t you carry around the basic stuff? Didn’t you say you were a veteran?”
Yoon Seung-Jae stood in the way of the tanker.
“Why should I use potions when there is a healer?”
You ask healers to heal you for minor stuff. That’s a waste of mana bro.
Announcement: I know this is sudden but I need to take a break from translation for a while, I have 2 programs I need to code to pass my major subjects and more is yet to come. I’ll probably comeback mid February, but if I finished earlier then I’ll post again.
