I Became a 6★ Gacha Character - Chapter 10
After gaining confidence from her first goblin encounter, Han Se-ah straightened her shoulders and marched forward with a smug expression. She knew that the goblin, the most dangerous monster among the four types I had explained – slime, horned rabbit, horned fox, and goblin – was a one-shot kill.
“Let’s go this way this time!”
Goblin, Goblin, Slime, Horned Fox, Slime, Horned Rabbit – surprisingly, she seemed to have the qualities of a warrior who could take them down with a single hit. Even a strong farmer would have to hit the 1st floor monsters two or three times to kill them, but she was diligently hunting them down one by one with stabs of of her staff.
“If you weren’t able to be a wizard, you could definitely use a spear.”
“Hehe, thank you for the compliment!”
Thanks to this, even if there were a few misses, the lowest level mana stones were accumulating smoothly. In addition, it seemed that she was quite familiar with the environment, circling around the entrance as the center and searching for monsters with return in mind. Seeing her stab the rushing monsters without any hesitation, it was hard to believe she was a novice.
Even if she had struggled against the 1st floor goblins, whining and complaining, I had to bring her along for the quest, but if she can keep handling her own, I would be grateful beyond words.
“Since it’s the first day, we can just collect 10 mana stones and go back.”
Han Se-ah, who was walking so confidently, suddenly came to a halt. She’d encountered the same obstacle that had claimed the lives of many adventurers in this tower.
Two goblin suddenly appeared in the front and one more goblin appeared from behind.
When the first goblin appeared, Han Se-ah confidently walked forward, then another one spawned from the bushes beside her, and while she paused for a moment, another one spawned behind us and began to approach slowly. Even if she could take down a goblin with a couple hits, the tension of being outnumbered 3:1 was inevitable.
“There are three goblins. There are three goblins…. If you each give me a mana stone, I can go back right away.”
Despite the calming effect of having me by her side, she took a deep breath to calm herself down. Without thinking of asking for my help, she aimed her staff forward and slowly moved sideways. It seemed like she wanted to face the three goblins head on instead of being surrounded from both sides.
“If I win 3 v 1 without being hit, 100,000 won? Do you invest or something? …wait, if my senior intervenes, deals off. Stay calm? Easier said than done.”
As I watched in silence, the person who had received a mission from her viewers muttered quietly and immediately stepped forward. That bald warrior had taught her a simple push for self defense, but it looked more like a lower thrust of an army spearman.
As if adjusted by the player’s stats, the wooden stick that was swung with great force struck the closest goblin’s forehead. With all her might, she thrust forward, and the goblin in the center turned into a marble as it tumbled backward.
Seeing that, the remaining two goblins rushed in like wild beasts with rocks and wooden clubs in hand.
“Hmm, don’t think I’ll need to step in.”
Although I was ready to intervene by grabbing one or two goblins, Han Se-ah held her own well. The wooden stick that had been stretched out was strongly swung like a baseball bat from right to left, hitting the head of the left goblin who was a bit closer.
The goblin didn’t die because Han Se-ah’s posture was sloppy, but he was dazed and dropped his rock. In response, the third goblin – wielding a club and rushing in alone – screamed and charged towards Han Se-ah, who was now vulnerable and unprotected.
With a sharp “thunk!” Han Se-ah’s slender leg connected with the goblin’s body, causing him to stumble backward. Though she couldn’t take them all on at once, she fought with a warrior’s grace, dispatching them one by one.
As the kicked goblin fell to the ground, the other on the left – having dropped his rock and holding his head in pain – staggered forward. But before he could regain his bearings, Han Se-ah thrust her staff once again, catching him off-guard.
Thunk! Another goblin was reduced to the lowest-grade mana stone.
Lastly, Han Se-ah went to the final goblin, who was lying flat and ended it with one final smack.
“You certainly have good combat sense. However, remember that kicks only work on goblins. When you go up against higher-level opponents, you have to use magic instead of kicks.”
Using the range of the weapon and the difference in physique, she disrupted her opponent’s movement and created ample distance multiple times. I’m definitely satisfied with her skills, I know firsthand, real combat is night and day from typing a keyboard and flicking a mouse.
To tell you the truth, when I first fell into this world and was surrounded for the first time, I panicked and only won with my absurd physical strength. In reality, I was a gamer, so I didn’t have any sudden developments of becoming a genius in shield techniques or weapon mastery, and I struggled a lot in this world.
“Hmm, 10 mana stones. You collected them faster than I thought.”
“That’s right, didn’t they usually not drop easily?”
“Monsters below goblins don’t drop them very often, and even beginner adventurers tend to take a long time to deal with goblins because they feel awkward about hurting them. When you think about it in that aspect, Hannah has great potential as an adventurer.”
As I continued to praise her, she couldn’t help but smile and giggle. It was cute how she squirmed around, seeming not used to receiving compliments so openly in front of an audience.
Even in the midst of this, her eyes moved subtly to one side.
-Still, winning with a 3:1 ratio, she seems to have talent?
-Fact: Other female streamers cried when they met goblins face-to-face.
-I got lost and failed because I didn’t listen to the explanation, there are many streamers like that, lol.
-It’s sweet in the beginning when you draw a 6★ NPC.
-Look at her smiling.

[Reward: Access to streamer Han Se-ah’s chat room]
Han Se-ah couldn’t resist her curiosity as she kept glancing at the chat window with a side eye, so I secretly used the new chat access privilege while the camera drone was heading towards the lowest-grade mana stones on the ground. As expected, are you better than other broadcasters?
‘This chat is actually quite interesting to watch.’
Having lived in a medieval fantasy world where the only entertainment was duels, operas, and plays, the internet chat room filled with all kinds of slang and abbreviations seemed quite addictive. Although it has been 10 years since I last saw a bulletin board or a chat room, just reading the playful and chatty posts filled me with joy.
I looked at the chat window moderately, and when the camera turned to me again, I talked to Han Se-ah, who was looking alternately between the magic stone and the chat window.
“It’s not good to overdo it on the first day, so let’s take the mana stones and go back.”
“Yes! …Excuse me, Roland?
“I’m curious how strong you are. Can you show me?”
She smiled cutely and playfully, but her eyes kept glancing sideways even as she laughed. Did she get some kind of mission or something from her viewers?
Han Se-ah asked me to show off my strength, and although I felt a bit embarrassed, I had no reason to refuse. I had to show off a little in front of the viewers and Han Se-ah to increase my chances of being kept in the party until the end.
I know most can’t abandon an NPC with the outstanding stats of a 6★, but since there’s a quest opportunity after 10 years, wouldn’t it be better to be sure of everything?
‘But what should I show you?’
The problem is that I’m a tanker, not a wizard or swordsman.
If I were a thief, I could show off skills like invisibility or dodging attacks. If I were an archer, I could show off the trick of hitting an arrow with a second shot. If I were a mage, I could show off a powerful attack spell that could destroy a meadow. In fact, these are often the skills that higher-level adventurers showed off.
But I’m a tank, a heavy-armored knight who relies on shields and armor that look like game items and uses brute physical strength to hit and crush his enemies. I can block a giant’s club with my bare hands, or withstand a dragon’s breath, but in the open meadow with no enemies, I had no skills to show off.
“Hmm, show you….”
“Uh, I’m sorry if I sounded rude.”
“It’s not a rude request. Adventurers like to show off their skills all the time. It’s just that I don’t know what to show you in the middle of an empty meadow.”
After quickly calming down Han Se-ah, whose face had darkened in an instant, I pondered… I could easily chop a goblin in half with a single blow, but what would that achieve? Even Han Se-ah could kill a goblin with a single blow if she wielded her staff well enough. Looking at the message board and chat room, I felt my adventurer’s pride surge.
A proof of strength that can arouse interest in viewers while imprinting my strength on Han Se-ah. While thinking about that, I tinkered with my adventurer card. Pretending to look at the arrow so I can take a peek at the chat window again.
– I’ll donate 300,000 won for a Roland power show
-What kind of show of strength can you do there, a grass-cutting show?
-Brother, can’t you just take off your armor and show off your body?
-But it would be embarrassing to brag about your strength against a goblin who gets knocked down by Han Se-ah’s kick.
-There’s a senior adventurer named Gaoga who shows off what he can do on the first floor.
There are some weird chats mixed in, but there are also viewers with the same thoughts as me. As I kept peeking at the chat box as if I was looking at the arrow, I quickly caught one opinion that passed by. Neither Han Se-ah nor other viewers saw the chat properly, but it definitely caught my eye.
“Hmm, I have a fun idea.”
“What is it?”
Like a fish responding to bait, Han Se-ah quickly approached me, not wanting to miss out on the 300,000 won mission.
“Well, since a goblin just appeared, I’ll show you.”
If it were a slime, it would have been too soft and annoying to catch, and if it were a horned rabbit or fox, it would have looked like animal abuse, but luckily, a hideous goblin appeared. Far from taking out the mace from my waist, I stretched out my hands towards the goblin after taking off my gauntlets.
A small monster wielding a pointed rock swung it at me, but of course, it couldn’t even leave a scratch on the skin of a 6★ tank who had leveled up for 10 years. Even after swinging the rock, scratching, and biting with its pointed teeth and claws, there was not even a red scratch on the back of my hand.
“Uh, are you okay?”
“For monsters below the 10th floor, I can even take a nap without wearing armor and be okay.”
Leaving behind a strange sense of awe, I put all my strength into my arm and threw the goblin high up into the sky as if I was throwing a fastball.
The camera angle is really good…
