I Became A Mechanic - C107
The screen image was projected on the whiteboard.
Several cogs were listed, and the man kindly explained them.
Next is an introduction to bearings, which are essential for machine elements.
All of these were ordinary things that Jun-woo knew.
“Hearthstones are mana condensed, and magic stones are mainly for golems… ….”
“Now then, how are you going to use them?”
The adamantium from the man’s item window melted, and countless gears were created.
The Gears found their seats and formed a small golem.
“Mechanical golem, the power source is a magic stone. If you make it through the blueprint, God will give it an effect. Anyway, come here and draw the part the golem is missing.”
Jun-woo got up with a puzzled face and approached the golem.
“Are you talking about missing parts?”
“Yes, you should be able to detect the degree of defects in mechanical elements through mana, right?”
Jun-woo placed his hand on the golem, closed his eyes, and breathed in mana.
The parts that make up the golem were drawn in Jun-woo’s mind.
Various gears floated around Jun-woo’s head when he woke up.
Jun-woo picked two of them.
Then the parts disappeared, the man said.
“Oh, how is it? 10 more points, then one more time.”
A 2m-sized mechanical golem was created by the male’s hand, and Jun-woo checked again for defects.
Jun-woo, who opened his eyes, looked at the man once, then closed his eyes again and more deeply.
When he couldn’t find any flaws, Jun-woo opened his eyes and spoke.
“A well-crafted golem.”
“Ooh, 10 more points.”
It was a man who scored what.
He doesn’t know what the result of that score would be, but it seemed like he needed to get many points.
“Now, let’s learn about mana applications. Sit back.”
As Jun-woo sat down, the explanation started again.
“Mana applications include searching, disassembling and tracking, just like you did, double search for building a model of a soul stone, discovering a flaw in the machine it is made of… ….”
Contrary to the previous explanation, it felt like the story he was telling was seeping into his head.
The knowledge he had previously known about how to deal with mana came back to his mind.
“Tracking is the ability to chase a target’s mana, and it’s used to build defense towers, rift alarms, etc.”
The knowledge he didn’t know permeated for the first time.
“Tracking requires the user’s ability to detect mana to be good for good things to come out.
Five Magical Stones came to mind.
It was the same question he was asked once in the alchemist’s dungeon in the past, but the amount of mana contained in the magic crystal was so uniform that it was difficult to compare.
Jun-woo compared them for a while and said without hesitation.
“Again, this time?”
“Last time, this time?”
The man grinned.
“Add 30 points.”
“Now, let’s take a look at disassembly this time. Disassembly can disassemble the machine it is made of. Still, you can also make potions by disassembling materials; ultimately, it is a mana application method used to study the wise man’s stone.”
It was something he knew.
“Disassembling materials requires intellect and mana, so it’s better to wear accessories that increase mana and dismantle them.”
The mana application he knew through the alchemist’s knowledge was re-established in his mind.
“Let’s try disassembling it this time.”
Iron ore was placed on Jun-woo’s desk.
“It’s iron ore. Let’s see where we can disassemble it.”
“Can I disassemble it?”
When Jun-woo’s hand was placed on the iron ore and powerful mana fired, the iron ore began to fall into powder pieces.
The completely decomposed iron powder disappeared in the wind, and iron ore was placed again.
Jun-woo gave it to powder.
“Try again, one more time, one more time.”
The man made a bewildered face when he disassembled five in a row.
“Is it possible one more time?”
The iron ore was placed, and Jun-woo spewed mana again.
Jun-woo’s complexion was already pale, and for the first time, cold sweat was running down his forehead due to mana depletion.
The half-decomposed iron ore disappeared when Jun-woo collected mana due to extreme vertigo.
“It’s 50 points… …. It’s like my record… You’re a great newcomer.”
“Thank you… ….”
A brilliant blue potion bottle that floated in front of Jun-woo approached.
Drinking it sweet restores all mana instantly, and the potion bottle disappears.
“Are you okay now?”
When he left the room, Jun-woo followed him.
After walking along the long passage, the man entered the room.
In a large workspace, various things were laid out.
On an extended workbench, including dozens of mechanical humanoid golems, various products were laid out as if on display.
Some things looked like flying cars, and there were also flying vehicles that looked like fighters, and a colossal golem that reached 5m was standing on the wall.
“Have you never made a homunculus before?”
“I heard you can’t handle soul stones other than golems.”
“Ah, yes… ….”
“The golem you see over there was made with a soul stone once, but it didn’t seem to have any effect other than to increase the vitality.”
If it was made in that way, the cost of the materials that would have to go in would be several times higher.
“It’s big… ….”
“He’s the size of a guy.”
Jun-woo looked at the golem and looked at the objects on the workbench.
There were various things such as magic lights, pendants, communicators, etc.
Among them, what caught Jun-woo’s attention was the button used when he went to the dimensional warehouse.
“Can I touch it?”
“You can touch it.”
Jun-woo grabbed the button and listened.
But no effect was seen.
“It’s an empty can; come this way, and I’ll tell you about the tower.”
Jun-woo put down the button and asked carefully.
“Are you Sr. Esopian by any chance?”
At that moment, a strange phenomenon occurred.
The vision in front of him was torn as if the space was shaking.
And a phrase appeared in front of Jun-woo.
[You have been granted the ‘Order to Improve Job Attributes’ by fulfilling the conditions.]
The man, whose body was severely blurred, looked back and smiled.
“Yes, how did you know?”
“Because I’ve seen the name of the product… ….”
Esopian caressed her temple.
“You’re getting dizzy, so it looks like you got the dimensional warehouse button the goblin took.”
It was Esopian, where the atmosphere seemed to have changed.
“Yeah? Yeah… ….”
“Did you make Eumeria?”
“Yes, I made it.”
“So, did you find this way? For a homunculus to have any memory, it must have a near-perfect design, technology, and skills, but you seem to have all of them.”
The space began to tear.
“Time is running out. Is your world safe?”
“Yeah? To some extent… ….”
“I have many questions I want to ask, but take it first.”
Esopian handed the purple book.
It was an ‘Advanced Book of Magical Engineering.’
Then the order was handed out.
“Take this too.”
It was the ‘Skill Enhancement Scroll’ used for the greatest legend.
This time, the Esopian handed a silver marble and spoke.
“I’ll take care of Eumeria, and don’t do anything dangerous because everything I’m giving you right now is a bribe as a favor.”
[Failed Philosopher’s Stone]
-Effect: When eaten, beneficial effects may occur.
– Item value: 8,000,000,000,000
“It failed, but I’ll try it later.”
“Take this too.”
In succession, 40 superlative magic crystals were delivered to Jun-woo.
For a moment, Esopian frowned.
“It’s hard to tell because my memory isn’t great. There’s a hidden place in the dimensional warehouse, and maybe there’s a wise man’s stone I made.”
“Oh, I ate that.”
Esopian showed harmony.
“Yes? Did you succeed?”
“It was called Unstable, and with a beneficial effect, mana recovery increased by 30.”
“Has it been a failure? Did you say that Oda killed sandworm?”
“Yes, that is correct.”
“Let’s visit the Sandworm’s nest here.”
“And… … .”
Esopian, whose body was torn apart, smiled softly.
“Finally, I’ll take good care of Eumeria.”
With those words, everything in the space before him was torn apart, and an intense light permeated Jun-woo’s eyes.
When he closed and opened his eyes, the space in front of him had changed.
Jun-woo was flying over the open circular door.
There was only dirt beneath the open door.
“… … .”
He wanted to ask about the Philosopher’s Stone, but the space has changed.
Perhaps Esopian was the father of Eumeria.
Maybe it’s because of the color of his hair. He felt the same way.
Jun-woo left the strange feeling behind and hurriedly flew to the tunnel blasting site.
When Jun-woo flew to the tunnel site, miner Jeong Dae-nam and construction wizard Choi Ji-ho, who was working, looked at Jun-woo floating in the sky with stunned faces.
Jun-woo said as he landed.
“Everyone, please follow me for a moment.”
Jun-woo provided them with two flying cars, took 8 miners and two construction wizards, and flew to the place a little while ago.
And they dug up the soil there according to Jun-woo’s wish.
The soil accumulated in the cylinder made of old iron plates was emptied.
When he scooped up all the soil that filled the cylinder, he was able to find the place where Jun-woo walked through.
“I’ll ask you here too.”
Jeong Dae-nam sucked the soil with a sandbag, and Choi Ji-ho pulled the ground back.
Jun-woo walked on the path that came into existence.
Dirt was seeping through the top because it was torn everywhere.
The soil in the workspace displayed the inventions also began to fall out.
There seemed to be nothing special other than the corroded iron.
Choi Ji-ho filled the pouring soil with stones, and they dug for a long time.
They gathered at the bottom of the cylinder when the sun went down, and it was time to get sleepy.
“Sorry for the sudden request. Instead, we will pay double the salary.”
Jung Dae-nam answered with a satisfied smile.
“Aww, thank you. We can do it anytime, as long as you put us to sleep.”
“Let me sleep here today. I’ll ask for a little more tomorrow.”
Jun-woo and others stayed there for a day.
The next day too, the forced march proceeded, and there were a workspace and several rooms, but nothing that could be called an item was seen.
And in the evening, they were out of the desert.
Kakan, including Jun-woo, and the defensive robot protected them and returned to the original site.
“You suffered. Then I’ll take good care of you here, manager.”
“Yes, yes. Come in, Master.”
The laboratory under the desert was all destroyed except for traces of it.
Jun-woo got in the flying car and quickly returned to the guild building with Kakan.
Eumeria entered the master room.
“Did you find the key?”
“Thanks. Thank you, Eumeria.”
Again, it felt somewhat similar to Esopian.
“I’ve only been to places that come to mind… it seems strangely right.”
“I think you’ve been there in the past. Do you know by any chance it’s Esopian?”
Eumeria said with a bit of a puzzled look.
“I think I was only vaguely listening… ….”
“Maybe it’s your father, I met him, and he cares a lot about you.”
Eumeria still had a puzzled face.
“Ah…, Yeah… ….”
“Take a look at the place sometimes, it was covered with stones, but you can break it.”
“Yes, I will.”
“And if you need anything, just tell me.”
“Yes…, you can go out. Anyway, thank you.”
“What. Then rest, Master.”
Eumeria nodded her head and went outside.
As Eumeria left, Jun-woo looked at the various things he had brought.
[Occupational Attribute Improvement Scroll] [Bound]
-Effect: Increases the grade of the attribute obtained by one level. [Available up to maximum legend]
– Item value: 2,000,000,000,000
He was thinking about the job attribute improvement order for the second day.
Jun-woo preferentially used the ‘Advanced Book of Magical Engineering’ that might give an answer.
The book was disassembled, and an intense light was emitted.
The light became powder and penetrated into Jun-woo’s forehead.
As the light penetrated, a vast amount of knowledge piled up in Jun-woo’s head.
