Closed Beta That Only I Played - Chapter 231
Chapter 231: Owl (2)
Like all flying monsters, they recognized me as their enemy and charged at me when I approached them. And it was the essence of monster herding that I herded such monsters into one place before killing them.
However, the harpies gave up chasing me after our distance widened even a little, and soared into the air again.
Even with Blink with zero cooldown, I found that harpies were not good for herd hunting.
But I just kept hunting, as usual.
“Multiple Ice Arrow!”
Puck! Puck! Puck!
Did I attack harpies since this was the harpies hunting ground?
No, I attacked something else. It was the owl.
A general owl would have been devastated by Multiple Ice Arrow.
I have already upgraded it to level 5, the maximum level, and my intellect exceeded 30,000 a long time ago.
But the owl in question cried out as if nothing happened.
This owl was no general owl.
If so, it should be a pet or summoned animal, but that could not be right either, for no pet or summoned animal could withstand my attack, and I could not find any summoner nearby.
So when I was about to attack the owl again, it said something.
[Good morning Asirante.]
Although the owl clearly referred to me as Asirante, I didn’t stop attacking it.
There was no reason for me to stop.
[Sorry, Asirante. This is not my original body, so you can’t do any damage to me.]
In fact, after using Blizzard, I approached the owl and swung the Ice Emperor’s guardian sword at the owl’s body, but I couldn’t hear any stabbing sound.
It just passed through as if I stabbed an illusion.
Of course, I wasn’t surprised or embarrassed because I had experienced lots of things, including the vivid encounter with the Item and Skills Masters recently.
[Sorry. I wanted to approach you, Asirante, but I couldn’t because you used teleport continuously.]
First of all, I tried to ignore the fact that I didn’t inflict any damage on the owl. I didn’t even intend to listen to it, either.
However, the owl kept apologizing, and it first approached me in the teleport zone, so I relaxed and opened my mouth.
“Good. Who are you? Why are you looking for me? I don’t think you belong to this area.”
[You’re right. My name is Arnap. I’m from India.]
“Okay. Good. But why did you come to me?”
[I’ve come here to ask for help. Currently, due to the collapse of the wall, the Indian server has merged with the Vietnamese and Chinese servers, but China is indiscriminately expanding its territory.
Since we can’t allow China to take away our land any more, I’ve come to you for help.]
Of course, I was aware of the fierce fight between India and China.
I heard from Director Sok that there was a fierce debate about it at the 3rd regular NW meeting.
“Are you asking that I fight against China?” I asked.
This might be arrogant to say, but there are no ice-type wizards who are as competent as me.
But it was not just arrogance or pride. There are no ice-type wizards with abilities comparable to mine. So China would recognize me immediately if I appeared before them.
Moreover, while working as Asirante, I had no choice but to make friends with lots of people.
As a matter of fact, it was inevitable that I would be revealed the moment Daeyu’s Chairman Daeyoung Suh tries to message me because the system would tell him I was in a different region.
So, If I joined hands with India, no matter how much I try to hide my identity, it was inevitable that they would find out who I was.
Of course, I was not scared about China. Well, China was a powerful country, to be honest.
It was evaluated as the next most powerful force after the United States.
So I don’t intend to fight China right now not only for me but also for the Myongjin Group.
[I know what you are worried about. But China will never find out you are Asirante. Not only China, but no one else will know that you are Asirante.]
“What does that mean?”
[If you look at this, you will know. Reveal, Constellation Hunter’s Badge.]
[Constellation Hunter’s Badge. (myth)
-This is the badge of an unnamed hunter who hunted the stars of the past universe and made all the stars tremble with fear.
-When you wear this badge on your chest, all stat points and all skills are changed at random according to the constellation hunter.
-You can use the badge only three times, and you can use it for a maximum of 7 days.
-When the 7 day limit is reached, it returns to its original state and immediately increases agility by 1000 permanently.
: Current number of uses available: 3/3]
It was a myth-grade item, but it was not one I was familiar with.
As if the owl read my mind, it immediately opened its mouth.
[This item is activated immediately when you wear it on the chest. Also, as you can see, it is of the archer series, so all of your stat points and skills will be randomly changed to that of an archer. So no one will recognize you because ice-based wizards and archers are completely different. Moreover, each time you use it, your agility is permanently increased by 1000. If you use it all three times, you will increase your agility by 3000. I’ll give you this badge. We ask you to use it only two out of three times on our behalf.]
“Why don’t you use it?”
Of course, I liked the item because it would permanently increase my agility by a whopping 3000.
However, being an archer was completely different to being an ice-type wizard. Above all, I couldn’t figure out how well I could perform.
[Well, we tried to use it on our end, but none of us could not use it. Of course, we didn’t have lots of players try it because we wanted to keep it secret. So, we had the five most powerful players in the guild try it, but they only received a message saying that they did not meet the equipment restrictions. You might also receive the same message, but the only person we could think of as the most powerful player was you, Asirante. Please come to India and try to wear it. Even if you receive a message saying that you can’t, we will fully repay you.]
First of all, I coveted the item because 3000 agility was not easy to acquire under any circumstances. Since I was an ice-type wizard, I coveted it all the more.
However, I thought twice.
“Well, I have added a lot of people as my friends now”
No matter how much I disguise myself, the owl here is the problem.
[You don’t have to worry because I will stay here. If I stay here, you can respond to as many messages as you need.]
“Oh, you’re a very talented owl. Anyway, is there any evidence that all of this isn’t crap? I’ve met so many greedy guys so far.”
[I don’t have any evidence to show you right now. We have no choice but to talk with each other like this because of the wall. And wisely enough, you haven’t leaked any information outside. But the Siddarth Guild I belong to is not stupid. We’re now struggling to block China, and eventually all the walls will collapse anyway. So, we have no intention of rubbing you the wrong way.]
I would not consider the owl’s proposal if I could still hunt in the Cunning Vampire Garrison, but I could not right now, and there were not many harpies here, so I liked the owl’s offer.
Of course, 3000 agility made me covet it all the more.
So I decided to accept the owl’s offer.
Moreover, I might not be able to use the constellation hunter’s badge like the owl said.
Anyway, we talked a little more, and soon I entrusted my body to the owl.
At the moment, I felt like I was moving somewhere.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
The owl was left behind alone.
The owl got out of the Harpy Habitat and began to flap its wings.
As if it were a user, the owl moved to the Olbini Castle using the teleport zone and settled down on the remote fortress to the south of Olbini Castle.
After that, the owl stopped moving with its eyes closed, appearing just like a natural owl to anybody’s eyes.
