Closed Beta That Only I Played - Chapter 253
Chapter 253: The Man Who Doesn’t Fall (2)
At the same time, I realized one fact that the system did not reveal.
To be precise, I have 3 IDs: Lumen, Asirante, and Lumen, Asirante.
Of course, I could message my family members with each separate ID.
Anyway, I brushed up on my IDs once more, lost in thought.
At that moment, my sister messaged me.
[Super Beauty: Juyoung, What’s wrong with you?]
She asked, filled with concern.
It was natural she was worried about me because I kept failing in this quest.
But nobody complained to my face because they knew I was Asirante.
I just chuckled at my sister, my mother, father and brother.
Of course, they asked what was wrong, but I just gave a simple reply.
[Lumen: Do you want to clear this quest? Just say so. Hahaha.]
I had tried and tested lots of things to clear the current quest.
So I was confident of clearing this quest during the next challenge.
If I could invest three times more stat points than others in my target area, there was no reason for me not to clear it.
A little later, my family members and Director Sok were pretty encouraged by my reassurances because they were frustrated that there were no signs of clearing the quest even after the 20 Myongjin players spent a week and two days challenging it.
However, I did not proceed with the quest recklessly, for if only the 20 players of the Myongjin Guild cleared the quest first, the Mirae and Tugal Guild who first brought this quest to us would be left in the same position as Japan’s Mitsuya Guild and would not be able to claim any credit.
In other words, I had to be considerate of their interests as Myongjin’s allies. I had to make them feel beholden to Myongjin, if I could.
My father and Director Sok welcomed my idea with open hands instead of rejecting it.
In particular, my father was looking at me in satisfaction as if he forgot that I was currently using the guise Asirante.
Of course, I didn’t intend to give them a lot.
I decided to give three spots each to Mirae and Tugal Guild.
A little later, a message about the start of a new challenge rang like before.
But I didn’t move to Track 1 immediately, just like the other Myongjin players.
At the message, that only 30 seconds remained, some people moved to Track 1, but this time they were a mix of players from the three guilds. In other words, it was not a Myongjin only team, but a team formed from members of Myongjin, Mirae and Tugal.
Of course, I could not see this as a dream team because the three spots allocated to the other guilds were taken up by the immediate family members of the guild leaders. In the case of Mirae, Bora Yon was definitely included.
Anyway, the new round started finally.
I launched an attack against Slimes in Round 1 as usual.
[You have successfully finished Round 1.
-Your agility stat increases by 1.
-You have acquired 1 golden ring.]
I chose magic attack as my attack method initially, but I did not change it to a bow attack because I could change my stats according to my wishes starting from the next round.
Round 2 started shortly afterwards.
I slightly pushed my foot toward the monster, and soon a message rang.
[By interfering with the monster’s path, one stat point will drop at random.
-Agility stat will drop by 1.]
[Currently you hold the title ‘The Man Who Doesn’t Fall.’
-You can’t recover the dropped Agility stat 1.
-You acquire three remaining stat points in place of the dropped Agility stat 1.]
Since I tested it several times, I opened the status window and invested 3 remaining stat points in Intellect.
And until Round 5, I kept upgrading the Lethal Mana Ball without hesitation using the golden rings while observing my stats rise up and up.
Anyway, I ran wild with the significant damage buffs.
Of course, I could play slowly because I was yet in the initial rounds of this quest.
But the message clearly announced that:
[Additional rewards will be given to the one who performed best among the 20 players.]
I was thinking of trying my hardest from the start, but the message encouraged me further.
Anyway, I put my foot forward to obstruct the monsters every round. On such occasions, I accepted the three remaining stat points in return for the random decreasing stat point.
Of course, I invested the remaining stat points in Intellect alone.
‘Check status window.’
[Strength 1, Agility 1, Intellect 91]
My status window was just fabulous.
Even if anybody got supremely lucky and gained random stat points in only one stat, the highest they could get was 31.
But mine was 91.
And I had even more things.
-Current golden ring: 0 golden ring.
-Sharp Blade: LV 0
-Threatening Arrow: LV 0
-Lethal Mana Ball: LV 25
-Attack speed increase: LV 5]
With 91 Intellect stats, which should have been 31 at the maximum, and only Lethal Mana Ball, my damage was tremendous.
I had also upgraded Attack Speed Increase to LV 5, so I had another huge advantage.
Thanks to such upgrades, I was stronger than before.
As a matter of fact, Intellect 91 was so minimal, compared to what I normally had.
But 91 in this situation was enormous because I received only 1 stat point in each round normally.
Because of that, it was inevitable for me to draw the attention of the other 19 players on my team.
“Wow, how can he do that?”
“If he bumps into a monster, his stat points should drop…”
“Can I try it too?”
“Are you crazy? Stop!”
“You tried it before without any success, crazy bastard! What the hell are you doing?”
There were always some people who tried to do what they were not supposed to, but they were stopped by others, so we could finish the round without any difficulty.
Now we finally reached Round 50.
[The Boss monster Minotauros has appeared.
-When you kill the boss monster Minotauros, you will be given 3 golden rings and 3 stat points which you can invest directly instead of being randomly allocated to you.
-The person who kills the Minotauros with the last attack will be given 10 golden rings and 10 stat points which they can invest directly.]
[If you fail to kill boss monster Minotauros, the challenge will fail regardless of your team’s remaining health.]
Thud! Thud! Thud! Thud!
In the previous rounds I didn’t inflict any tangible damage.
But I was confident this time.
Every time I hit the Minotauros, its body shook from side to side.
Obviously, I wasn’t there alone. 19 other players were present too.
Since they realized they had a shot of clearing the quest this time, they attacked the boss monster more fiercely than ever before. In the end, the Minotauros collapsed without even travelling round half the track.
[You have defeated the boss monster Minotauros.
-Lumen, Asirante showed a more outstanding performance than anyone else.
-You have obtained 10 remaining stat points that you can invest directly.
-You have acquired 10 golden rings.]
I immediately invested all the remaining stat points in Intellect and used all 10 gold rings to upgrade Lethal Mana Ball. I became more powerful in an instant.
Moreover, the other players also obtained 3 remaining stat points and 3 golden rings.
As a result, we cleared the next round very quickly.
Every time I cleared the round, I lost a random stat point, but I obtained 3 remaining stat points that I could invest directly.
Some time later a message rang.
[Round 70 begins.
-The monster that appears is the Death Knight.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
-The Death Knight uses a defense aura. As a result, all the damage he suffers is reduced by 40%.]
As if to confirm this was the final round, a monster with a 40% damage reduction aura appeared. So it may be a pretty big problem for other players.
But it wasn’t a problem for me because I had perfect stats and upgrades.
As a result, the Death Knight’s armor was smashed in a few strokes, and it collapsed helplessly.
