Episode 342: Alfheim (1)
“I can’t do this… How come I know this guy?”
Tyr muttered in shock as he put his hand on his forehead.
He was looking at the photo of the adversary and comparing it with his own memories.
It was to remember where I had met him in the past.
However, there were no significant results.
The more he tries to do something, the worse the headache gets.
Because no memory came back.
Just 10,000 years ago, in a certain war, he met an opponent.
There you… .
“Once I confirmed that you knew, it was okay. I’ll just go there. I have business to deal with.”
As Hugin said that and tried to disappear, Tyr glared at him and said,
“Explain the situation.”
“I am Odin’s raven, not Tyr’s.”
It was an obvious line drawing.
Tyr couldn’t say anything. no matter how crow he is
He was directly connected to Asgard’s strongest Odin. He now had nothing to gain by fighting himself.
‘shit… Once I sat there… .’
God of War and Justice.
Tyr was a god who had power over Asgard before Odin.
Although now he is defeated in the battle for supremacy with Odin and pushed to the rear, it was true that his reputation in the past was comparable to that of Odin.
“… do it First of all, you will know that. However, once things are sorted out, you will have to explain this to me. It’s not like I don’t have that much authority, right?”
After Hugin disappeared like that. Tyr sat alone in his seat, blankly.
I didn’t feel bad until yesterday.
Today, thanks to that, the aftertaste has become bitter.
Hugin, thanks to his gloomy personality and Odin’s favor, the Æsir gods’ evaluation of him was not so good.
Just Odin’s crow, and he’s the one who delivers Odin’s opinions.
And being a being who can handle emotions as he wants.
That was all.
Tyr sighed as if he couldn’t help it.
For now, the only thing left to do was to see how Odin and Hugin would move.
‘Why is there an adversary in my memory now? We need to find out why a youngster who was born less than 20 years ago existed 10,000 years ago. That comes first.’
Tyr was determined to find out somehow.
adversary. What is his true identity?
Why was he able to use the primordial magical power, being born with the best talent along with Odin and Loki despite being human, and being able to grow so fast up until now?
The moment the thought reaches that point,
For the first time, I began to wonder about the name of the opponent.
* * *
―The 3rd tier clear reward is given.
―The Climber has cleared all 《The Dragon Slayer and the Song of Tragedy》.
―Receive the protection of Sigurd.
―The crafting level of the dragon slayer Balmung has increased by 1!
Jaehyun couldn’t help but be genuinely surprised.
It was the news he had been waiting for so far.
Strengthening the weapon that was being used well by copying it from Balak from the beginning.
This was bound to be of great help to Jaehyun.
‘Recently, I’ve been using Nidhogg’s fangs as my main focus, as each grade is a grade. The fact that it could grant a deadly poison effect was huge.’
The one Jaehyun used the most recently was Nidhogg’s Fang. Because it was a dagger, it was easy to use, and it had good synergy with a mythical skill, so it happened without my knowledge.
Because of this, Jaehyun has been feeling regret lately.
‘Because each weapon has its own characteristics. In particular, the greatsword is excellent in that it has a long reach and can cut more enemies at once.
But I couldn’t use it in the battle with the most important gods.’
Balmung, which has not been brought out recently, except for special circumstances such as the visual ban.
However, representation can now overcome limitations.
Upgrade from S-class to one level!
It means that Balmung has finally reached the status of a myth.
With a throbbing heart, Jaehyun lightly poured magic into his hand.
―Active skill 《Formation of magic tools》 is activated.
With the activation of the magic, blue spheres gradually gathered from Jaehyun’s hand and soon began to take the shape of a great sword.
However, this was quite different from what Jaehyun knew.
The huge dragon’s tooth marks were engraved everywhere, and the overall size of the greatsword became larger.
That wasn’t all. Balmung has changed to fit his hand even more.
As if it had been a product of reenactment from the beginning, the balmung has been wrapped around the hand since the hilt.
From there, black and red aura like a greatsword of a dragon slayer overflows.
Jaehyun experienced the power of a completely different weapon from before.
Just by holding it, I could tell that the sword had changed.
‘Not only sharpness, but also destructive power has become incomparably stronger than before. It’s an absurd growth rate.’
As soon as Jaehyun’s mouth caught his ear, the sound of the system continued.
―I succeeded in crafting the artifact «Dragon Slasher Balmung (Myth)»!
Jaehyun smiled as he looked at the advanced martial arts.
Now with this, he has a total of three mythical weapons.
To be precise, it would be more appropriate to say that there were three craftable weapons.
Jaehyun continued to check Balmung’s changed detailed description.
Name: Dragonslayer Balmung (Crafting Item)
The beloved sword of Siegfried (Sigurd), an ancient human hero who killed Fafnir.
Received the protection of the dragon slayer and was strengthened to the limit.
1. Strength + 200 / Agility + 100
2. Acquire the passive skill 《Dragon Slayer (Myth)》
Jaehyun smiled as he looked at his newly acquired skill 《The Will of the Dragon Slayer》.
Name: Will of the Dragon Slayer
Inherit the will of Sigurd the Dragon Slayer.
When driven into an extreme situation, it immediately recovers 20% of the user’s endurance once and for all.
As described in the skill, this is when Jaehyun’s endurance has fallen to the limit. It was a skill that could recover 20% of it only once.
Jaehyun couldn’t help but admire.
Jaehyun thought about the first time he leveled up after the change to the Nornir system.
At that time, for a while, Jaehyun invested almost all of the stats he gained after leveling up into endurance.
The reason Jaehyun did that was simple.
This is because the stat called endurance is directly related to Raider’s survival.
when performing repetitive activities. And when the radar is pushed to the limit.
A power that allows you to instantaneously exert power beyond your limits.
‘Of course, in a state where stamina has fallen, I can’t fight properly.’
By the way, the dragon slayer’s will is when this stamina runs out. It is a skill that allows you to recover 20% of your stamina at once.
To put it simply, this meant that he could endure the crisis of dying once with his endurance.
‘In a word, it’s a dog scam.’
Jaehyun reverse summoned Balmung with a happy expression.
Then, he approached Seo Ina and asked.
“Did you get anything good?”
“… Ah yes. It seems so… Even after reading the contents, I don’t know what it is.”
For some reason, what Seo Ina got was not an item, but a skill.
Jaehyun tilted his head.
“Is it too difficult to explain?”
“… I think so. Would you like to take a look… ?”
Jaehyun nodded, and Seo Eana showed him her skill window.
Looking at the skill window, Jaehyun put on a slightly embarrassed expression.
Name: Direct descendant of the royal family
Detailed skill descriptions will be revealed when certain conditions are met.
To fulfill the conditions, you must head to Alfheim, 10,000 years ago, at the time of the first Ragnarok.
“Go to Alfheim 10,000 years ago?”
No matter how I look at it, I thought it was strange.
At the point where the second Ragnarok took place, why not head to the kingdom of the elves where the first Ragnarok took place?
How is that even possible in the first place?
“… There must be some reason… ?”
By the time Seo Ina muttered so quietly.
As if trying to clear the doubts of the two, a system sound was heard.
―The waiting room usage time has all ended.
―Transfer to Yggdrasil Spiral Tower’s 《Fourth Layer: Ancient Kingdom of Elves》.
* * *
The reward for clearing the 3rd floor of Jaehyun’s colleagues was truly eye-opening.
A ‘case’ that is an extension of what was obtained in the immediately previous layer.
Yggdrasil gave it to them as a reward for clearing the tower.
“It’s not yet to the point of reaching the first stage of liberation… great. If things go smoothly like this, within a few months we will reach the first stage of liberation.”
Hella was also surprised, but said so in the most calm tone possible.
Of course, it wasn’t a perfect godhead like Jaehyun.
It is virtually impossible for them to grow up there in the first place.
However, as a human being, he has taken even a small step towards the transcendental realm. It could never have been acknowledged.
Hella recalled for a moment the time when Jaehyun first gained divinity and obtained ‘divine usurpation’.
At that time, he fought against Heimdall while controlling his unstable magic to save himself.
However, now their colleagues are trying to reach that level little by little.
Even though he couldn’t even reach Jaehyun’s toes, it was unavoidable.
Arrangement of the system and innate talent.
No matter how you look at it, Jaehyun was truly a monster.
‘Because he’s that kind of person, they probably want them to reach him like they are now.’
Hella thought about that and nodded her head slightly.
“We are stronger.”
Ahn Ho-yeon recalled the battle and clenched his fists.
“As strong as the shadow guys I dealt with earlier. We have become stronger too.”
“you’re right. you are growing I will vouch for it.”
When even Hella said that, Kim Yoo-jung and the other members’ noses twitched slightly.
However, smiles soon spread to the corners of their lips.
There was still a long way to go.
Jaehyun is waiting for them in a far away place.
So I can’t be satisfied with that much.
They all thought so and burned with a sense of goodwill.
* * *
―Transfer to Yggdrasil Spiral Tower’s 《Fourth Layer: Ancient Kingdom of Elves》.
On the other hand, the time when my comrades first gained their status and were lost in thought.
Jaehyun finally arrived at the next layer.
4th tier. The kingdom of the ancient elves.
Jaehyun frowned and opened his eyes.
He muttered, looking around.
“… This is the world of elves. Is it Alfheim?”
All around were grassy fields and tall tall trees.
As I read in the myths of the past, there were also vines of all kinds intertwined. In the fresh air, fairies with pure white light fly around.
There was a scent of magical power that was much thicker than that of Midgard.
A place full of life.
But, then. A fishy smell spread through Jaehyun’s nose that he shouldn’t have felt here.
A beast in the shape of a dog flew in from somewhere and rushed to bite Jaehyun’s shoulder.
When Jaehyun expanded his field of vision, he felt three beast-type monsters nearby.
Jaehyun was sure. It was an unpleasant, sticky smell that I felt a while ago.
“… it’s blood There must be someone dead.”
Seo Ina had said that, and Jaehyun immediately nodded.
Poppy stood in front and puffed up.
However, Jaehyun couldn’t immediately get into a fighting stance.
Because the magic is strong? It wasn’t.
However, it wasn’t because he was weak.
Just because I was curious.
‘Those witches… !’
The monster that Jaehyun is facing right now.
These are the gods of war who let Hugin escape after a battle in the past.
Because it was a beast-type beast that Tyr handled.
At that moment, the two heard a message again.
―A climber was sent across the timeline to an ancient elven kingdom 10,000 years ago.
―You have accepted the main quest 《Lullaby of the End》.
