Return to Player - C18
Difference in Class (2)
Dong Kwon felt like he’s seen a ghost.
Seeing Sehan blow Joowon away with his bare fist.
Joo-Won’s right arm, which wriggled as he stood up, was broken and wobbly.
‘Is he an avatar of a God too?’
Otherwise, it doesn’t make sense.
But the ‘avatar of god’ aura can’t be felt from him.
“Kwa, are you okay?”
Joo Won gritted his teeth as Dong Kwon approached and started talking to him.
When had he ever been humiliated like this?
There was never anything like this before or even after the world changed till now.
“Get that bastard… Now!”
Rather than going downstairs, he wanted to catch Sehan who was walking upstairs now.
Seeing Joo-Won screaming with red eyes shining through them, his men hurriedly turned around.
“Leave it to me. Hyung!”
“Take that cheeky bastard…”
Bright red blood splattered.
A lump of metal with human flesh attached to it fell to the floor and rolled onto the floor with a dull sound.
The feet of those who were running towards Sehan stopped abruptly.
With a thump, a man fell.
His headless corpse fell to the floor, wriggling.
Something flew and crushed the man’s head.
“What… Is it now?”
Even Joo-Won, who had shouted in anger, stiffened and looked at the piece of iron that had just flown in.
The lump of iron rolling on the floor was none other than a mace.
And a woman was slowly picking it up.
“Absolutely no one here-”
Jisoo, who swung her mace once in the air and wiped off the flesh and blood from the mace, muttered with an emotionless face.
“-can leave this place.”
In normal times, they might have attacked her right away, cursing her as a crazy bitch.
However, they couldn’t.
‘Is she even human?’
Those who are here are heinous.
And some of them even committed murder.
That was why they couldn’t understand the girl’s appearance all the more.
She just killed someone and the feeling she expressed was… ‘disgust’.
A gaze filled with calmness but also full of disgust.
Joo-won felt his body tremble the moment he saw those eyes.
When he first met her, and even now.
“Fear?… To a bitch like that?!”
Joo Won gritted his teeth and stood up.
Then he shouted, clutching his chain scythe with his only functional left arm.
“Kill that bitch!”
She was small compared to them.
But the unknown fear that can be felt from that small body caused Joo-won’s men to rush in unison.
As thirty men rushed to her all at once, Jisoo was in a little difficult situation.
“This will spurt a lot of blood.”
Jisoo glanced down at her clothes.
‘I’m glad I chose to wear a black dress.’
Jisoo swung his mace at a man running from the side.
As the mace hit him, his arms bent back like a shrimp and flew off.
A man rushed from behind and thrust a knife into Jisoo’s shoulder.
‘It’s the end… She can’t fight all of us with just one arm.’
He firmly held the knife in his hand and twisted it after piercing Jisoo’s shoulders.
It was clear that this girl would be incapacitated with this attack.
Yes, that was the man’s misunderstanding.
Jisoo was stabbed because she decided that it was unnecessary to avoid it.
‘If it’s only the joints then I don’t need to dodge.’
The head of the man who put the knife in Jisoo’s shoulder exploded.
Jisoo’s weapon was a blunt weapon, so she could wield it in any direction.
As she pulled the knife from her shoulder, her blood gushed out.
But that didn’t last long, since the cut from the knife was completely healed after a few seconds.
‘The situation is in my favor.’
It’s hard to keep track of Jisoo’s movement when they are underground where the light doesn’t come in, and due to the nature of Thousand Deaths, the more she fights, the stronger she becomes.
That makes the situation favorable for Jisoo.
The more blood is spilled, the higher the regenerative power and the bonus to her stats.
It was for this reason that she inflicted wounds that would make them bleed as much as possible on them.
“Kuhuk, Kah, kuek!”
A man who blocked Jisoo’s mace with his sword, fell and was stepped on, getting his waist broken.
“Ah! my arm, my arm!”
Jisoo twisted the arm of a man who was running towards her and pulled his whole arm out.
As Jisoo’s whole body was stained with bright red blood, her physical abilities increased.
‘Even fighting goblins is harder than this.’
Unlike goblins, who only attack with malicious intent, humans have too many thoughts.
Humans, unlike goblins, feel fear, anger, and madness, making them freeze or fight blindly.
Of course, it didn’t matter much to Jisoo.
“Is this, a nightmare?”
Dong Kwon’s voice trembled.
Half of the thirty people who rushed to Jisoo were already dead.
It would’ve been exhausting for other people to fight with this many people, but Jisoo’s behavior was rather lively.
It was because Jisoo was a natural killer, but no one here knew that.
As his own men died indiscriminately, Joo Won rushed at Jisoo, his eyes crimson red.
Even though he ran like a madman, Joo Won’s mind was calm.
‘She’s strong, but it’s at a level I can handle.’
Unlike Sehan, who instantly appeared and blew him away with a single punch earlier, Jisoo was at least moving at a speed he could follow.
On the contrary, in terms of speed alone, he was faster than her.
‘Damn it, if only my right arm wasn’t broken.’
I didn’t have to run around and fight like this.
Jisoo reflexively swung her mace at Joowon, who screamed and rushed at her.
It was an action that seemed to be dealing with a small insect, but that was what Joo-won was aiming for.
He pulled the body of one of his subordinates, who was running beside him, toward the mace that was swung at his head.
“Hy- Hyung? Uakk!”
A brief moment when the subordinate’s head exploded and their eyes were blocked by a cloud of blood.
Joo-Won’s left hand grabbed the chain scythe slung around his waist.
A mortal skill received from Hades.
If the skill hits the target, death will surely come within 1 minute.
However, it can only be used once a day, and it does not work on beings higher in rank than him.
But against normal players, it’s like an invincible ability.
‘Feel the difference in class and die.’
This woman is not a God’s avatar.
If so, she will surely die after getting hit by this skill.
Compared to Joo-Woon, the avatar of the god of death, she is just an insignificant existence.
She is obviously of a lower rank than himself.
It must have been.
Joo-won felt that his vision had tilted.
At the end of Joo-Woon’s flickering eyes, he saw his left arm. His left arm clutching his chain scythe.
His subordinate’s head was not enough to stop Ji-soo’s attack and Joo-won’s left arm struck as he was wielding a chain scythe.
On top of that, the additional damage added by the Thousand Deaths skill tore off Joo Won’s upper torso and blew it away.
Joo Won’s body was also blown into the air from the impact and rolled to the ground.
It was only then that Jisoo’s eyes turned to Joo Won.
“… When did I hit him?”
After muttering that, Jisoo immediately looked away.
There was no looking back at the fallen Joowon. Her impression of Joo Won was only that.
‘Was I that insignificant?’
The pain of being weak.
Joo-won felt it for the first time in his life, and he died like that.
“Is it really okay to leave her there alone?”
“’Probably’?! What do you mean probably?!”
Minah shouted, but I didn’t really have to worry much. Jisoo and I were connected through a system called ‘party’, so I knew right away if something goes wrong.
More than anything, Joo-Won, who had a broken arm, should be unable to stop Ji-Soo.
He invests all the points he initially earned for the ‘Gold’ grade into his skills and the only skill he should have currently is ‘Death Sentence’ which only kills someone when they actually get hit by it.
Since Berserker’s Heavenly Blood Technique has the effect of maximizing the characteristics of Thousand Deaths, if Jisoo is exposed to a lot of blood, there is a high possibility that Jisoo’s ability will go into a counter-stop state. (T/N: counter-stop is where their stats are at the maximum available for the current quest.)
“To begin with, that guy, Joo Won isn’t really that strong.”
“He was really strong from what I’ve seen when I infiltrated them, you know?”
“Well, he’ll still lose to Jisoo.”
Joo-Won gets stronger after gaining a few more skills.
‘If Joo Won dies, will The Sin disappear?’
It’s a pretty big change from before.
I honestly don’t know what the outcome of this will be.
“But are we really going to the rooftop?”
Minah asked with an anxious face.
“The monster that even those criminals can’t even leave a scratch?”
“Yeah, that’s right.”
“I know Oppa is a bit stronger than I thought but isn’t it impossible even for you to defeat it?”
“If I’m alone, it is.”
After I said that, I looked back at Minah, who was following me up the stairs.
“That’s why I brought you.”
“…me? What can I do for you? I know how to fight a little, but my only skill is transformation.”
It’s currently just transformation.
But that’s enough.
“Is this the door?”
“First of all, I’ll ask before entering, did you do what I asked for?”
If she didn’t do it, it wouldn’t really be a problem, but it was necessary to increase the chances of success.
“I did it. Do you know how uncomfortable it made me? Haa~ you better pay me for my work properly.”
“Don’t worry. I’ll buy you an item that’s worth at least 2000 points. and maybe even a bonus depending on the rewards for the second quest.”
“… Two thousand? You’re not lying are you?”
Minah’s eyes were filled with disbelief.
Considering that the points received from getting a platinum grade were only 1,000 points, it was understandable enough for her to make such an expression.
‘It’s only about 2,000 points, so I don’t even get a dent in my balance.’
Compared to killing the ‘Sentinel’ on the roof, it’s definitely a surplus business.
Before opening the emergency door to the top, I told Minah.
“Transform before entering.”
“Transform? To what?”
It must have been quite out of the blue, Minah looked at me blankly and blinked.
“Did you injure your head?”
“I’m perfectly fine.”
“… A weasel?”
“The guy inside is a Basilisk right?”
Minah nodded her head.
“It is. But what does that have to do with weasels?”
“It’s one of its traditional weaknesses.”
Specifically, chickens and weasels.
There are several legends about the Basilisk, but these two are its representative weaknesses.
“… I don’t think it will help much.”
“You’ll know after you transform. let’s go.”
As this world is a game, ‘strategy’ is important. Basilisk is also a boss that has weaknesses so that it can be sufficiently attacked.
‘But now, even if I know that, it’s a boss I can never beat.’
Its overall ability is probably at least C rank.
A level of ability that cannot be defeated no matter how hard you try with an F-rank counter stop.
The Sentinel of the first main quest was something that shoudldn/t have existed, so there was a limit on its ability, but there will be no such thing for the second main quest.
“Is your transformation over?”
As soon as I finished speaking, a white weasel came up on my shoulder.
“If I give a signal, transforms into a ‘chicken’.”
The weasel’s little head nodded.
To be honest, it’s a little cute.
This time, if I make a mistake, I’ll die.
I calmed down and slowly opened the door.
The room was full of stone statues all around.
It must have been the Basilisk’s ability, ‘Evil of Petrification’.
A little far away, a poison-rat’s corpse could also be seen.
The white weasel’s complexion was not good.
As expected, it is a face that worries about whether she followed me for nothing.
‘Where’s the Basilisk?’
Is he hiding?
“Now, Lee Min-Ah. Go and find that monster’s location.”
“It’s okay. Even if his Eye of Petrification sees you, you won’t turn to stone.”
The weasel twisted and pondered, and finally jumped off my shoulder.
The psychology of ‘Aaargh, I don’t know anymore!’ was appearing in the little weasel’s mind.
Minah, the weasel, hurriedly returned before long.
Then, with her little forepaw, she pointed in a direction diagonally forward.
Then I realized that I was stupid.
‘Ha, I see. Well, there’s no need to hide.’
Disregarding even hiding or moving, he was lying leisurely in a place a little distance away.
Looking out the window with a nice view.
“Another foolish one has come.”
A voice was heard mixed with the hissing of a snake.
This guy is the first I’ve ever seen.
Because in my previous life, I only knew that a basilisk existed here.
After all, this is the real Sentinel.
Unlike the Minotaur, which had no name, this guy is a true Sentinel.
That said, it is a named monster.
The giant lizard, several meters tall, moved its head slowly.
“My name is Orga. I am the one who watches over this land.”
That was the name of the Sentinel that dominated the second stage.
