Kill The Hero – Chapter 112 – Frozen Forest of Violence (3)
Dungeons were very similar to videogames .
After a dungeon was attacked, the number of monsters in the dungeon would return to the original amount .
However, the monsters that had survived would still remain .
Of course, it was extremely rare for ordinary monsters to survive till the end .
After a dungeon was attacked 10 times, it would be extremely difficult to find a monster that had spawned during the first attack .
The only exception was boss monsters .
‘He is a monster that survived 23 attacks . ’
So gathering information was important .
‘It’s almost impossible to compare him to a regular Ogre . ’
The experiences of the monster, the types of wounds that the preceding players had left on it, how it dealt with those wounds and how its personality shifted over time .
‘He has already become a hunter . ’
And how his personality changed his fighting style .
This was the information that Kim Woo-jin wanted to get from the bodies .
Thanks to that, Kim Woo-jin knew it well .
‘He’s a clever hunter . ’
The Ogre was clearly targeting the smaller group instead of a large group .
In particular when it found a players body, it knew that the new players would be interested in that body and so it would have a chance to ambush them .
It also knew that after such a hunt, it had to take a break to quench its thirst .
‘But its IQ isn’t high . ”
Based on the information he’d gotten, Kim Woo-jin looked for a weak point .
Gulp! Gulp! Gulp!
As the Ogre lifted the body of a player it had just killed and drank the hot blood that was squeezed out of the body as if it was drinking a canned beverage, Kim Woo-jin controlled the Goblin skeleton to move .
The Goblin Skeleton Soldier, which was wearing armor specially designed to remove the sounds it made, stealthily approached the Ogre .
It wasn’t that close .
It was about 10 meters away, but if it drew closer, the Ogre would notice .
When it reached this distance, Kim Woo-jin gave an order to the skeleton using the Grim Reaper’s Mask .
‘Throw . ’
Immediately, the skeleton threw a fist sized water balloon that it had been holding in its hand .
The water balloon flew toward the Ogre’s face silently and quickly .
Then it burst .
The attack was so ridiculous that the Ogre began rubbing its face which had already been smeared with blood, while making a sound of surprise instead of anger .
It was at that moment .
[The Ogre has been afflicted by Black Blood . ]
[It has been blinded . ]
The notification that Kim Woo-jin had been waiting for sounded in his ear .
Then he heard the Ogre finally understand what was happening and let out a loud roar filled with anger .
“Eraa, I didn’t realise . ”
That was the signal .
Lee Jin-ah rushed towards the Ogre with the skeletal wolf .
The battle had begun
The leader of the Sawtooth Wolves, a skeleton wolf which had been summoned through the additional effect to summon giant monsters, sprinted through the frozen forest and narrowed its distance to the Ogre .
There was no hesitation in its movements .
[An Unknown Fear has overwhelmed you . ]
It was as if an invisible wall appeared before them as they ran wildly .
It was this wall that had left countless players in despair .
Even those who had hardened themselves in the face of fear had died without being able to truly prove themselves .
However Lee Jin-ah was smiling as hard as he could even in the face of such fear .
[Lancelot’s Ring negates Fear . ]
It was because he had Lancelot’s Ring which negated all negative status conditions .
The skeleton wolf was also unaffected by the effect of Fear .
Fear only affected living creatures and had absolutely no effect on those that had already died .
The two of them quickly broke through the wall .
And they came face to face with a wall that was much worse .
The Ogre .
Up close, the gigantic beast was even more horrifying .
It had a height of 4 . 6 meters, an overwhelming physique that made anyone feel incredibly small and rough, thick skin which gave one the impression that it was as effective as the best leather armor .
The most overwhelming thing was its injuries .
The wounds that it had gotten over the course of 23 dungeon attacks were virtually battle scars that criss crossed over its body .
Even those who had mental protection abilities would feel frightened just by looking at it .
But of course Lee Jin-ah was different .
He stabbed the Ogre’s thigh with the spear in his hand without even a second of hesitation .
Such a spear stab immediately left a deep wound on the Ogre’s body .
The Ogre was surprised by it and immediately swung the wooden club in its hand .
Lee Jin-ah avoided the attack by laying flat on the body of the skeleton wolf while the wolf immediately made distance from the Ogre .
During the slight pause in the battle, a surprised cry escaped from Lee Jin-ah’s mouth .
‘Isn’t it like piercing pudding?’
It was in admiration for the amazing penetration power of Percival’s Spear .
[The Ogre’s recovery ability has been greatly reduced . ]
In addition, the wounds caused by Percival’s Spear could not be easily healed by the Ogre’s remarkable resilience .
Thanks to that, blood began pouring from the wound .
“Go right away . ”
Then the skeleton wolf spoke .
“Okay . ”
This caused Lee Jin-ah to stop admiring the spear and instead begin preparing for the next attack .
Once again, the Sawtooth Wolf Skeleton Soldier began running towards the Ogre in the distance .
But this time it wasn’t as easy to hit the Ogre . Unlike the players, the Ogres weren’t known to have a sharp drop in combat ability simply because they lost the ability to see .
Instead, it accurately grasped the location of Lee Jin-ah and the skeleton wolf using sound and smell, and swung its club like a bolt of lightning .
The skeleton soldier jumped sideways to avoid it .
The wooden club smashed against the ground .
Meanwhile Lee Jin-ah used the spear to leave another wound on the Ogre’s thigh .
However this wound was not very deep .
Although the entire blade of the spear entered, if you considered the enormous size of the Ogre, it became only a scratch .
There wasn’t the destructive power that one would imagine from a cavalry attack .
However Lee Jin-ah and Kim Woo-jin weren’t dissatisfied by this .
“Next time I’ll sidestep twice . ”
Rather Kim Woo-jin used the skeleton’s mouth to explain a new tactic .
From the start the purpose of this combination wasn’t in the creation of a strong destructive power .
“Okay . ”
The purpose was to divide the roles .
Kim Woo-jin became the bridge and all Lee Jin-ah needed to focus on was the attack .
The power of such tactics was actually considerable .
Firstly, Kim Woo-jin was probably better at overlooking a battle and supporting from the back than any other player in the world .
As long as he was holding the steering wheel, then there would be absolutely no accidents unless it was coincidental .
And it didn’t matter if there were accidents .
“Woo, I almost kicked the fucking bucket . Wasn’t that too close?”
“I’ll show you what the word close really means . ”
Lee Jin-ah, who had the Blessing of the River Styx would be able to survive even if his limbs were ripped off, his ribcage crushed and his head chopped off .
There was nothing better in the world than a pilot who cannot die or a race driver who wouldn’t die in an accident during a race .
Lee Jin-ah and Kim Woo-jin proved this to the Ogre .
Of course, they didn’t forget .
“When are the skeletons going to come out?”
“After you make ten cuts . ”
As should be expected, such a large stage needed an audience .
The Skeleton Soldiers were prepared and waiting for their master’s orders .
“After that we’ll just have to put these in the wounds . ”
With weapons made using Kim Woo-jin’s Blood Poison in their hands .
