Episode 183 Fafnir (2)
Jaehyun aimed his sword at the monster that appeared in front of him.
Two dragon swords.
This will give you a huge advantage against enemies.
‘No matter how strong that guy is, he’s a dragon beast. There’s not much chance of him showing enough power to overwhelm two Balmung.’
Balmung is an S-class artifact that adds 300% damage to dragon monsters.
Even more so if there were two such swords.
Even if it was an S+ level monster, it might be easier to deal with it.
[Kuaaaaaaaaaaaaaa… … !]
Cheer la la rock!
With the dragon’s cry, the pile of gold collapses as it steps on it.
It was truly spectacular.
“As in the myth, he seems to be a guy with a lot of money.”
Balak clicked his tongue and murmured.
With him, scorching heat rose from the ground.
Soon the gold melted, and golden molten iron gushed over it.
The three jumped quickly and avoided the rising magma column.
A pit with a diameter of slightly more than 2 meters was formed, chilling their conversation.
“That guy. I guess you’re thinking of melting us all down?”
Jaehyun sneered and put strength into the hand holding the sword.
said Balak, catching his breath.
“I’m going to get his attention. In the meantime, you two attack Fafnir.”
“It’s good. Please don’t die.”
“That sounds funny.”
With Jaehyun’s agreement, Balak quickly jumped forward.
All three of them were veterans who had been on the battlefield for a long time.
Objectively, the ones who can generate the greatest firepower here are themselves and Camilla.
Now Balak’s judgment was a major one.
‘Camilla is a combat mage. He’s not as good as me, but his damage is explosive. The estimated damage is more than Balak holding the dragon slash.’
A chance to see for yourself the skills of one of the world’s greatest wizards, Camilla.
Jaehyun felt his heart pounding in his chest.
Those standing shoulder to shoulder with him now were S-class raiders.
Before returning, the best stars he thought of.
like that. It was at that time that Jaehyun was lost in thought for a while.
Fafnir opened his mouth wide and suddenly fired a breath.
An attack made of molten iron, as if made by melting gold, flew towards Jaehyun.
―Active skill «Absolute Calculation».
It was a strong attack, but fortunately Jaehyun couldn’t be damaged.
It was thanks to the power of a skill that turned all magic into nothingness.
“You broke the breath?!”
Camilla was horrified to see that, but continued casting.
A breath that breaks and scatters like polygon fragments.
On the other hand, Balak, who ran forward, also closed the distance with the enemy and activated the season.
A state of attacking an enemy by mixing several blades, leaving stab wounds.
Jaehyun was unknowingly admiring his restrained swordsmanship.
‘In terms of swordsmanship, it’s almost on par with Heimdall.’
Jaehyun was involuntarily admiring and did what he had to do.
―Active skill «Leap in the air».
Jaehyun shouted as he quickly closed the distance with Fafnir.
“Camilla! How long does magic casting take?”
Camilla answered right away.
However, 20 seconds. This is quite a long time.
It’s probably hard for Balak to endure alone.
This heat is dangerous.
Having reached a conclusion, Jaehyun quickly stretched out his hand and deployed his mana.
―Active skill 《Frozen Earth》 is activated.
The ice made by Jaehyun falls on the floor where there is no space to tread on due to the pillar of fire.
The ice expanded its range, cooling the surroundings while filling the hole in the floor with magma.

It made a way for the two of them to travel comfortably.
Magic to assist Camilla and Balak’s movements.
I heard Camilla’s voice after the casting was over.
Jaehyun once again activated an air jump and kicked the air.
Balak also raised his sword vertically and took a defensive stance, then stepped back as if kicking the ground.
At the same time, Camilla’s magic poured out.
―Active skill 《Aqua Punishment》.
Aqua Punishment, one of Camilla’s trademarks who is proficient in all elemental magic.
True to its name, Water Punishment, it was a skill that boasted the best deal among water attribute skills.
Magic that creates long spears made of water to attack enemies.
It was also the first time that Jaehyun had actually seen it.
‘It’s also great. It’s magic worthy of the world’s greatest wizard.
But, I can’t lose either.’
Jaehyun straightened his sword and poured the maximum amount of mana he could at once.
The magical sword that ignited in an instant flies straight into the enemy’s heart.
Jaehyun’s balmung was accurately shot at Fafnir’s body, which had lost its heat from the Aqua Furnishment.
Goo Goo Goo!
Vibration echoes and the cave shakes as if it is about to be smashed.
The ground cracked everywhere on the floor, and the overflowing magma began to subside.
A sentence that should never have leaked out of Balak’s mouth as he watched Jaehyun and Camilla from behind.
“This… … It’s not good at all.”
It was strange.
Krrr… … !
Despite the attacks of the two, Fafnir was still alive.
Jaehyun gritted it.
‘It was definitely a powerful attack that would blow away more than half of the guy’s physical strength. However, Fafnir is too fine.
As if it didn’t take any damage at all.’
And that is.
“It must mean that the area to attack is not good.”
“Wait, what do you mean? The wrong part to attack!”
Jaehyun didn’t answer, but his face seemed to have realized something.
“Assist from now on.”
Jaehyun jumped up in an instant and moved to the beast’s close range.
He approached Fafnir’s feet before he knew it and made an attacking motion.
―Active skill 《Ice Edge》.
along with skill activation.
The shards of ice that rose up hit the enemy’s wings accurately.
That was the moment.
[Ahhh… … !]
Light returned to the dragon’s eyes, and voices began to be heard.
[Golden… … must have… … Unless you have more… … .]
Goosebumps rose up all over the three of them at the sound of a scratching iron.
The system intervened at the same time Well.
―Fafnir’s true power blooms.
―The battle enters Phase 2.
Jaehyun stopped walking for a moment with a puzzled look on his face.
He frowned and listened to the sound of his voice.
[Odin… … hate… … Your dirty name… … !]
Jaehyun gritted it.
Is that guy’s name coming up here?
* * *
With two leaps, Jaehyun quickly stepped back.
[Kuaaaaaaaaaaaaaa… … !]
Fafnir’s wild roar hit their ears again.
‘shit… … Phase 2.’
Magical power pouring from Fafnir’s body. This was far beyond what humans could endure.
However, there was an issue that made reproduction more difficult than this.
It was the relationship between Fafnir and Odin.
‘Odin and Fafnir… … There is a high possibility that it is related to the story of Andvari’s ring in mythology.’
This was an object possessed by a dwarf named Andvari, and it was a special artifact that could make gold.
However, there was one problem with this object.
It was a very big flaw that those who wore the ring would fall under the curse.
Jaehyun recalled the time when he obtained information about Einherjar in the past.
At that time, he read all the Norse myths in the Central Library of Miles.
As a result. I could also come across the story of Fafnir and Odin.
‘Fafnir. A being who faced tragedy due to Andvari’s ring given to him by Odin and Loki, and eventually turned into a dragon.’
“Anyway, it seems that the myth is twisted this time too.”
Jaehyun recalled the story about TRP in the theme dungeon in the past.
tirp. Contrary to the original myth, he was forcibly exploited by Thor, and even kidnapped his brother, Roth Kva.
Situationally, it is highly likely that Odin and the Aesir gods attacked the Fafnir family this time as well.
“I think I can talk. I will ask you one thing.”
He looked up at the huge dragon in front of Jaehyun’s eyes.
“Have you been used by Odin? All of your family?”
[human… … is it… … ? How is it… … .]
words infrequently. Fafnir was shaking his head at his headache.
[okay. dead… … My family is Odin… … I was killed by him… … !]
“It was like that.”
Jaehyun felt the unusual feelings of Fafnir.
A clear feeling of anger.
It was wearing him out.
Jaehyun added quickly.
“I will release your restraints. In addition, I will avenge your family. therefore… … .”
[Odin… … hate… … Odin… … !!]
However, the conversation did not continue there.
Fafnir quickly returned to his pupil.
‘shit. Is it brainwashing magic?’
Jaehyun clicked his tongue and put strength into the hand holding the sword.
“hey! Jaehyun Min! What did you just mean by that? Did you have a conversation with Fafnir?”
Balak’s voice interrupted from behind.
Jaehyun tilted his head as if it was strange.
“… … Didn’t you hear what he said a moment ago?”
“I heard nothing but Fafnir’s howling.”
“Neither do I.”
Balak and Camilla looked at Jaehyun and asked, as if they couldn’t understand the meaning.
‘It seems like I’m the only one who can hear him.
… … Well, it just went well.’
It was quite dangerous to open up information about God to others.
After Jaehyun made his decision, he twisted his lips at Fafnir’s growing magic power.
I don’t know the exact circumstances behind it, but at least it is certain that I was playing with Odin’s trick.
Even if not an ally, an opponent who is by no means an enemy.
‘It’s happening again. As expected, Aesir is full of disgusting people.’
Himself and Hrungnir. And this time to Fafnir.
Odin was only fulfilling his own self-interest, regardless of race.
“If you don’t stop yourself, I will stop here.”
[Aaaaa… … Odin… … !]
Jaehyun immediately floated into the air, ignoring the screams he heard.
He didn’t forget to pay attention to Balak as well.
The roar of the dragon he was facing now was on a different level from that of an S-class boss monster.
In order to break through the attack, they needed the support of two people.
“I’ll cover you this time!”
With her words, Jaehyun and Balak simultaneously ran towards the enemy.
Camilla used all of her attribute magic to contain Fafnir’s attack.
Various attacks using wings and claws, as well as a roar that stiffens when hit.
Even the breath there.
Every attack narrowly missed Jae-Hyun and Balak, creating a momentary gap.
“Opportunity comes only once. As you can see from a moment ago, his weakness is not his heart.”
“Then where are you? do you know?”
“no. But you’ll find it soon.”
―Activate the active skill 《Magic Power Detection》.
Meanwhile, at Jaehyun’s words, Balak immediately nodded and leaped.
Although it was a short time, Jaehyun’s skills were clearly confirmed.
For now, I have no choice but to believe that he can find weaknesses.
‘I feel like I’m being swayed by Min Jae-hyun, so I’m annoyed… … !’
Thinking so, Balak raised his sword.
With the noise of clashing magical powers, his sword completely disappeared.
Balak puts all of his body’s mana into the sword.
―Active skill «Intangible Sword Type 2―Phantom Sword» is activated.
Balak’s sword floating in the air creates a strange afterimage.
“Weakness… … ! Where are you?”
“forehead. To be precise, it is the ring that is embedded in it.”
As soon as Jaehyun’s words dropped, Balak, who had reached the enemy’s nose before he knew it, swung his sword.
It is a skill that creates multiple afterimages and cuts enemies in succession. It was by far the strongest skill among Balak’s single dealing skills.
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!
A formless, shapeless sword continues to cut through the enemy’s forehead.
In an instant, a sword that rips through the dragon’s vitals dozens of times.
However. Even with all his strength, Balak’s expression was not good.
[Cre… … .]
‘shit… … Shallow!’
It was only one.
If only one more hit, it could have been pierced.
However, Fafnir’s outer shell was harder than expected.
It was a level that could not be penetrated by anyone who had at least the same level of swordsmanship as his own.
It was then.
Jae-hyun passes by himself as he descends and heads for the enemy’s forehead.
Seeing this, Balak gritted his teeth and shouted.
“Run away now! Normal attacks cannot pierce it… … .”
―Active skill «Intangible Sword Type 2―Phantom Sword» is activated.
Jaehyun’s eyebrows went up. Her Balak’s eyes widened.
‘That’s… … Intangible sword… … ?’
