Evolution Theory of the Hunter – Chapter 81
[TN: Sorry so short guys eeeeek]
From its outward appearance, it looked more like a sledgehammer than a warhammer. Instead of a battle weapon, it looked more like a tool used to demolish buildings.
This hammer weighed over 50 kilograms. It was not a weapon that anyone would be able to wield, let alone pick up easily.
I picked it up and started to swing with it back and forth in one hand.
A small electrical spark leapt out.
It seems that the electrical damage was proportionate to the amount of force used to strike the poor guy hit by this barbaric weapon.
It was a heavy thing. I had been able to wield the Honcheon sword, which was heavy in its own right, as if I were swinging around a feather. It would be difficult to do the same with this item.
I guess that would be the trade off – harder to wield, but able to deal more damage at a time.
Yeonkyoung, taking my advice, purchased a Level 3 Valladolid Horn Bow.
It was a 1.1 million dollar weapon that didn’t require any arrows to use.
Since it didn’t have to be reloaded each time, this was the best suited weapon for our archer whose specialty was in rapid firing.
She paid for the difference in the cost of the weapon by selling her old bow.
It was Sooah’s purchase that took me by surprise.
“Are you seriously going to buy this?”
“Yeh. Why not? Isn’t it a good weapon?”
“Well….I’m not saying it’s bad.”
She had chosen a Level 3 Arachne leather armor. An armor that wrapped around the entire body, while it served its purchase in protecting the wearer, it was also a bit risque.
I’m not saying she was exposed anywhere. But the leather was designed to hug every curve.
Whether or not she had a nice figure, I would feel embarrassed to look at her were she to put it on.
But other than that one small issue, the armor had a number of very nice options.
First, it had great ventilation. Even if she were to wear just the armor all day for a month, she would remain both comfortable and odor free. You could basically think of the armor as a second skin.
Since the armor was also very elastic, it didn’t give too much trouble when putting it on and taking it off.
But the best part of the armor was that you could shoot webs from it.
I think I remember an American comicbook hero being able to do something similar.
There were two main purposes for these cobwebs.
- Rendering your opponent immobile or limiting mobility
- Protecting your ally from other attacks.
“Did you buy that so you can wear it for Manager Kim?”
“Yep. I’m sick of hearing him muttering in the back while we fight so I’m buying it to maybe shut him up.”
“Hm….I don’t know if that would shut him up.”
“What does it matter. Then I can just shoot some webs at him. There.”
She made a small evil smile. I guess it wouldn’t really matter if she cocooned him in some cobwebs since he didn’t do anything else the rest of the battle.
It would also help her since she could spend less of her energy protecting an extra body.
“So is everyone done shopping?”
Han Joonseok, who was walking toward us, said loudly. Since the only market in the new land was this one, it was no surprise that we would run into him.
“Yeh, pretty much. How about you?”
He raised up his new quiver. The item stats appeared via my manual.
Though it was an item I was already familiar with, it was different seeing it in person.
Explosion quiver (3): Gives the arrows stored in the quiver the ability to explode on impact.
It was a clever choice. The only real weapon Han Joonseok had was the level 2 stalker.
In order to close the widening gap between the other members, instead of choosing another weapon, he chose a new quiver that would boost the attack power of his current weapon.
Everyone else had also chosen and purchased level 3 items as well.
In order to raise his defense, Cho Youngoo purchased a level 4 no name plated armor.
It didn’t have any special options, but it would serve its main purpose just fine.
Jong Sawon brought an Ingot sword and the Level 1 agility sword.
These were the item ingredients to fuse and create a Rubicon sword. We had 10 ansilites left. This meant we had enough to create a level 3 item.
“Would this suffice for a fusion?”
“Yes, not a problem.”
It seemed he wanted to use two swords like I did.
Imagining him killing monsters left and right with a rubicon sword in both hands made me feel a bit sorry for the little guys.
“But do you think you’ll have enough strength to fight with both swords?”
The Rubicon sword is supposed to be wielded in both hands. Although it wasn’t a rule but, unlike the bastard or longsword, if you don’t attack with enough force you lose the full benefit of the weapon.
“That’s why I bought another item.”
Jong Sawon shrugged his shoulder as he raised his glove.
I thought it was familiar, until I recognized that it was the level 3 Power Glove. Wearing both as a set increases the wearer’s power by 50%.
With that on, it would be no problem for him to wield both swords.
Park Hanbum had purchased a level 3 Basilisk leather armor. This armor was to protect against sword attacks.
It was something unnecessary for fighting monsters. But we had already run into trouble with hunters that time before, and we were sure to run into trouble with them again.
Finally, Manager Kim had ended up purchasing the most interesting item. It was a level 4 flashing ring. The ring had a 30 second cool time and gave the wearer the ability to move instantly to another location in a 10 meter radius. This was an item that was difficult to use when trying to be stealthy or hidden because of the bright flashing light that shines out on use. But it was perfect to escape a dangerous situation.
