Never Die Extra - Chapter 441
The Great Ancient Wizard, Attack the Tower (1)
All-Master was a person who had an aptitude for all weapons. Opinions were divided on whether or not Dark Magic aptitude was included. Still, it was a meaningless conversation because it was Leo Arpeta, who was actually called the king of bayonets, who had a distinct aptitude for many weapons, anyway.
“You can’t…use Dark Magic? Hmm, but your ability to handle Dark Magic itself is great.”
“Dark Magic is handled by people from all over the world. You don’t have to teach my son that weird stuff.”
“I think so, too.”
Evan also had a desire for Dark Magic, especially when he was young. He wanted to be a wizard, but since he learned about his future in the game where he met the bad ending every time, he stopped his desires. But wasn’t it really ironic? As a result of sticking to what he could do, he had already been told by people around him that he was a great master…and he became the Great Ancient Wizard who could use Annihilation now. In fact, it was all just physical force.
“Then, Lian, I’ll teach you the training you need to do to be strong from now on.”
“As expected, the greatsword.”
“That’s not possible. You have to use both hands.”
Evan, who had cut down Leo’s words, gave Lian a small club and a dagger. Both were one of the most common aptitudes and one of the fastest-growing.
“Come on, let’s change our shoes.”
Leo was a little shocked when Lian followed Evan. Either way, Evan changed Lian’s shoes into combat boots (the size-adjusted automatically) and fastened a belt around his waist.
“What’s this, Hyeong?”
“It’s called a Yeon-sword. It hurts if you handle it the wrong way, so just bear with it now.”
“Then why are you letting him hold such a dangerous thing!”
The Yeon-sword was unique, bent, and stretched long like a whip. It was a dangerous weapon that could hurt even the user. In the world of the Yo-Ma Great War series, it was classified as a highly manic weapon, so there is a low probability that he had an aptitude for it. It was classified as a gag weapon among those the Yo-Ma Great War series because of its high power. When it comes to gag weapons, videos such as ‘Straight clearing the Demon King with just a Yeon-sword while naked’ was uploaded quite a bit by the fanatics. Removing all armor was completely useless since the Yeon-sword’s advantage was a surprise disguised as armor. Still, now it was all a pleasant memory.
“But the aptitude of the Yeon-sword has the overwhelming advantage of wearing the weapon like a normal belt and performing certain movements to improve its proficiency!”
“That’s why you want me to wear a weapon that’s different.”
Finally, he took a fairly large hammer out of his inventory and put it on the floor. Leo was going to get very angry if he asked Lian to hold it, but he just tilted his head because he didn’t know Evan’s intention.
“Then, Lian, you can copy what I’m doing.”
Twist the left-hand club slightly and stab it downward. At the same time, the dagger was thrust and twisted twice in a row in the air. While bouncing your waist diagonally (this part was important), he took a strong shot at the bottom of the boot and slightly kicked the hammer stuck on the floor with the other foot.
“Okay, do you want to try?”
Lian was a genius. The four-year-old child, Lian, perfectly followed Evan in one try! Evan was moved to a standing ovation when he saw it. However, everyone else except him still looked like they didn’t understand.
“Congratulations, Lian. You’ve just laid the foundation for as many as six weapons.”
Leo couldn’t stand it anymore and tackled him.
“That’s a series of movements that I don`t even know the meaning of, but let`s say I still understand that each weapon`s proficiency increased. But there are only five weapons you took out in the first place.”
“Oh, Grandpa Leo, you don’t have to always train with the actual weapon.”
“I don’t understand what you’re talking about!”
Of course, it was a bug. It was discovered by a fanatic that had learned several techniques by chance.
If you took a particular action in two techniques simultaneously, you would learn a weapon that had nothing to do with that!
“The sword and the club…but there’s a cross-section during training at the same time.”
“Yes, it just happened!”
“That’s how to train for the Sacred Cross.”
Sadly, however, Leo didn’t even know what the Sacred Cross was. Next to him, Aria nodded.
“Is the cross-referring to relics? Some of the priests use it to increase the power of divine Dark Magic. As Zero said, there are also aptitudes, so there are limited people who handle them well…”
“Yes. And during the high-ranking movements of this Sacred Cross, in fact, there was a derivative training that raised the power of divine Dark Magic by making a cross with another weapon.”
However, it was also a movement that cannot be challenged unless you have practiced Sacred Cross. Still, they were lucky enough that the dagger and the club had an aptitude for the Sacred Cross! Of course, there was a sad post saying that since his job was a thief, no matter how much his Sacred Cross’s skill level was raised, it was meaningless.
“It’s a priestly weapon!”
“Of course, it’s a priest’s weapon. But in fact, even non-priests can handle the weapons if they have the aptitude. The problem is that you can’t use the Holy Dark Magic, so it’s meaningless.”
“Then it doesn’t mean anything after all…?”
Leo tilted his head. Evan felt bad for him; he had no understanding of the proficiency system. If he had the same aptitude as Leo, he could have been a hundred times stronger than Leo now!
“Have you ever trained a weapon other than the greatsword, Grandpa?”
“Huh? Well, I used to swing the Bastard Sword a lot in the past.”
“But you’re very good at using the Rapier that you’ve never trained for, aren’t you?”
While Leo still couldn’t get a clue, Aria immediately realized it and exclaimed.
“You’ve only trained using the Great Sword, but you’re good at dealing with Rapier…that means that the proficiency is shared?”
“That’s right, Aria.”
The All-Master’s delusion started at that very point. No matter what weapons you train, the aptitude of all weapons increased. In other words, the proficiency of the weapons was unified!
“It doesn’t matter what kind of weapon it is. It’s important to increase the proficiency of the All-Mastery by dealing with that weapon. A club, dagger, Sacred Cross, Yeon-Sword, blade boots, and a combat hammer. By training six weapons at the same time, you can increase your weapons speed by times six.”
This was the method designed for the fastest growth of the All-Master! Leo hadn’t yet accepted the reality, but Aria accepted the meaning completely and was sweating.
“This…I don’t know if I can let Lian do it…”
“This is the Demon Realm, Aria. It’s not the time to hesitate about early education!”
“Well, that’s right. The Demon Realm is a tough world.”
“Lian, just do what Zero tells you to do. If you’re having a hard time, tell mommy.”
“I’m not tired; this is fun! I’m getting better at it!”
And Lian was already perfectly overwhelmed by Evan’s charm, and he was doing everything he had to do. Six times the proficiency wasn’t an exaggeration, as they could feel Lian’s movements becoming natural before their eyes.
“I’ll also prepare the private hot spring. If you dip it in here after you’ve finished training, it’ll double the effect.”
“When did you make that?”
“It’s easy to miss twice the proficiency without the hot spring environment.”
So, Evan made a thorough arrangement for Lian’s training and stood up with a satisfied face.
“Then let’s get going.”
“See you later, Master.”
Maybell kissed Evan with a lingering face and was forced to step back. On the other hand, Mirole wanted to do exactly the same as Maybell, but she didn’t seem to have the courage.
“I’ll be back, Mirole.”
Eventually, Evan took a step forward and kissed Mirole on the cheek. They could see Mirole’s ears turning red.
“He flirts with women very naturally.”
“Hyeong, that was cool.”
Even Lian, who was still at an age where he doesn’t know much about the difference between men and women, was shining as he saw Evan saying goodbye to Maybell and Mirole. At this point, Aria began to have anxiety that she might have entrusted her child’s education to an overly dangerous person, but it was already too late.
“Come on, get in.”
Evan invoked the Miraseul’s Necklace. The explanation for the necklace world had already been given to them. While Evan was attacking the tower, he wanted them to stand by in a safe place as he didn’t know what would happen outside.
“Maybell, tell the witch sisters about it, too.”
“And don’t seduce the kids there, Grandpa Leo.”
“How dare you say that!?”
With Leo grumbling, he pushed the power into subspace. It was pleasant to see Aria surprised for once.
Evan turned his head back to the tower surrounded by the Imugi. There was no change in the appearance of the Imugi. However, while they were eating outside and teaching Lian how to train, it seemed that several more Demon Tribes entered the tower. None of them came back out. The energy emitted by the tower was growing stronger.
“The Hell Ruby…”
Evan didn’t know who named it, but it’s a really good name. Evan twisted his lips and smiled, and headed for the tower.
However, when he reached the tower entrance, the Imugi, which had been standing still around the tower, started to move. The Imugi biting the tower, suddenly opened his eyes and looked down at Evan, who was about to enter the tower. Evan looked up at him. The Imugi’s eyes trembled for a moment, but soon he snorted and closed his eyes again.
“Okay, I don’t think it’s going to run away.”
He should pay homage to the fact that it recognized his spirit even though he was completely hiding it. It also seemed to be much stronger than ordinary dragons, even those of the Demon Realm.
“It’s good that I’ve come to the Demon Realm.”
‘What else can I make out of its skin and bones?’
‘What does its meat taste like?’
Evan entered the tower and puffed his chest with such expectations. With the passion in his arms, the boots he was wearing glowed faintly, he successfully entered the tower.
The Hell Ruby was calling him.
