Chapter 405-407


Chapter 405

In order to raise Reidan's fertility rate, you must set an example as the lord . Please share your hot love even more where people are watching .

Lauel meant to actively express positive affection .  A simple example was to stroke her cheek or whisper loving words in her ears . He wanted to engrave the perception 'this couple's relationship is beautiful and happy!' into the public .

But Grid misunderstood .

'This guy has seen too many Japanese videos . '

Why would he share a hot love in front of everyone? Wasn't a hot love beyond kissing? Doing this act in the middle of the city, not the bedroom, and in front of more than 20,000 people? It was impossible unless he was a complete pervert . It was a completely crazy idea .

W-What is it?

Lauel saw the contempt in Grid's eyes and panicked .  It was the day when the pure youth Lauel was labelled as a pervert .

And on this day .  Lauel was disappointed with Grid's uncooperative attitude and made a pledge .

'I will take initiative for My Lord . '

Lauel's project to create a second generation had begun .  It was at this time that the legendary 'Reidan’s Female NPC Strategy' was written .

*** 

It was only six days before the National Competition and Grid was supposed to leave for France in four days .

Based on Satisfy, Grid had 12 days to spare .

'I must finish all the preparations . '

Thus, he hurriedly returned to Reidan .  Now wasn't the time to be like this .

“I love you, but I'm sorry . Please be satisfied with this today . ”

Time was short .  Grid saw Irene's nakedness after a long time and used his hand techniques .  After a while .

"…I love you, dear husband . "

Grid's dexterity stat had long gone beyond the realm of a human .  Grid satisfied Irene in a short amount of time and left for the smithy .

***

Reidan's super large smithy .

Khan and the young blacksmiths welcomed Grid, who had been missing for a few months .  Grid observed Khan with the Great Lord’s Sword and felt admiration .

'Advanced level 8?'

In fact, Grid had thought Khan's blacksmithing skill would stagnate at advanced level 7 .  But in contrast to his expectations, Khan was steadily developing .  The process of training talented young blacksmiths seemed to give Khan a new understanding .

“Maybe you have a chance to become a craftsman?"

“Huhu, you are overrating me . "

Historically, only 10 blacksmith craftsmen had emerged .  Khan didn't dare aim to be recognized as a craftsman .  But Grid thought differently .

'Khan is Albatino's descendant . He comes from a long bloodline of blacksmiths and has more passion than anyone . If I support him well, he can become a craftsman . '

Maybe he would be reborn as a named NPC .  Grid felt greedy as he headed towards the furnace located in the innermost area of the smithy .  A typical furnace was always dirty, but Grid's was clean .  It was thanks to Khan always cleaning it for him .

'Really, I'm touched by that old man every time . '

His first friend, Khan .  He prayed for the old man to live as long as possible .  Grid's eyes were red as he started to prepare the firewood, while the young blacksmiths freaked out .

"Duke Grid! Let us do these menial tasks!"

“It isn't your duty!"

It was impressive .  Two years ago in real time, he had been told by the old blacksmith in Bairan that he couldn't even cut firewood . Now he was in a position where he shouldn't be cutting them .  He realized that he had become successful .

Grid laughed and waved to the young blacksmiths .

“You can go and do your work . Today, I want to go back to my state of mind as a beginner . "

Grid thought that going through all the blacksmithing processes would improve his concentration .  He prepared enough firewood and lit the furnace .

Tak! Tatak!

The flames in the furnace started to slowly rise .  Grid controlled the temperature of the flames and suddenly laughed .

'If Braham saw this, he would be laughing at me . '

He would've argued that he could've raised the temperature of the flames instantly with magic power .  But right now, Braham was silent . To be precise, he fell asleep just after using Assimilation .

Did this mean that Grid used Assimilation recently? No .   Grid hadn't use Assimilation during the past fortnight .  The reason why Braham was exhausted and sleeping was due to what happened when Grid died on the 61st island some time ago .

'I don't want to go to hell . '

Grid had used Blackening against Lantier, and was in danger of falling into hell due to dying in the Blackening state .  Braham said that if he fell into hell in this state, he would fall prey to the great demons . Therefore, he suppressed the dark gate trying to suck Grid into hell with magic .

In exchange, a message was added to Grid's current status window .

* Braham has 69 days, 9 hours, 3 minutes, and 15 seconds left to restore his magic power and wake up . You can't use the Assimilation skill until Braham wakes up *

By the time 69 days passed in Satisfy time, the National Competition would be coming to an end .  In other words, Grid had lost a powerful weapon in the National Competition .  But Grid wasn't shaken .  He believed he could play a role in the National Competition alone, without Braham's help .

'I will make that belief come true . '

He needed items .  He realized that there was a limit to developing his control . No matter how hard he tried, he couldn't be a genius like Kraugel and the Overgeared members .  Therefore, he needed to make the best items .

'Horse knight's helmet, troll lord's vest, crying ogre's gauntlets and golden crown's leggings . '

In addition, Lantier's cloak .  Grid wanted to reproduce some of the items of the monsters he met in the latter half of the Behen Archipelago .  It was because he needed new, more powerful armor .

'The Holy Light set is really good . But…'

The Holy Light Armor had a high probability of resisting dark magic, increased the effectiveness of healing magic by 300%, and increased resistance to physical attacks .  The Holy Light Gloves raised attack speed and accuracy, and had a low chance of activating the 5 Joint Attacks skill .  The Holy Light Crown raised his intelligence and dignity stats .

Once these three items were worn as a set, defense and health rose significantly .  It was why Grid had been steadily using it since level 170 .  Yes, the Holy Light Set was very good .

'If it was half a year to a year ago, I would still be able to call it a top-class armor . '

But not anymore .  As the level of monsters and users increased, the value of the Holy Light set was falling .  He was able to realize it after meeting Kraugel and experiencing the Behen Archipelago .

'The problem is that the basic defense is too low . '

In particular, the crown and gloves had poor defense . It was almost defenseless .  In the case of the Holy Light Armor, it wasn't bad, but the defense wasn't very high for armor .  If there was no set effect, he wouldn't have used it from the beginning .

'The 5 Joint Attacks of the gloves isn't too bad . '

At this point, the only advantage of the Holy Light Set was for healing or when facing magic .  This thought became more widespread after dying from two of Lantier's blows .

'I have to make an armor set for defense . '


Monsters easily neutralized his attacks in the Behen Archipelago .  He would gather the characteristics of the armor they were wearing .

'First . '

Grid confirmed that the furnace was at the right temperature and extracted the black iron and ogre blood .

'Let's make the troll lord's breastplate . '

From the time he became duke of Reidan until the present time, he'd earned around 147,000 gold from hunting and various quests . Of course, there was a separate sum that he invested into Reidan .

In any case, 147,000 gold was approximately 200 million won .  Grid was planning to pour all of this gold into making items .

'I will use the finest materials . '

The National Competition .  It was the best stage of Satisfy that the entire world was paying attention to .  Grid needed to invest enough to prove his worth on that stage .  However, the concept of 'enough' wasn't understood properly by Grid .

In fact, 200 million wasn't a big sum .  The rankers of various countries participating in the National Competition poured at least billions of won into upgrading items and skill books .  Were they crazy?

Not at all . This was a realistic amount .  There were many sponsors attracted to the rankers participating in the National Competition, so money poured out abundantly .  Of course, many companies offered to sponsor Grid .

However, Grid refused .  It was because the amount was too small .  None of the companies set a high price on Grid, who had been nerfed .   Most companies predicted that Grid would lose his events, so the average value they offered was 300 million .  This was low compared to rankers like Chris and Zibal, who had been offered 12 times as much .

Grid's pride was hurt and he had to refuse the offers .  Someone might think he was stupid for kicking away 300 million because of his pride .  But Grid thought differently .

'I will get the best result . '

Companies that sponsored him would get astronomical results .  Grid knew this fact, so accepting only 300 million won would make his stomach cramp with irritation .

Grid vowed again .  He would prove his worth to those who underestimated him and make them shed tears . .

Chapter 406

Scale armor .

As the name suggested, it was armor similar to the scales of a fish .  Several small pieces of iron plates were put on leather straps and then joined together with thick cloth or leather .  The range of activity was high because it allowed free movements of the body . In addition, it was good at deflecting swords and other sharp weapons .  It had resistance to stabbing and slashing as options .

But the basic defense power was inferior when compared to other heavy armor .  In particular, it was difficult to avoid a fatal injury if the joints where the iron plates were joined together were attacked .

'In the end, the gap between iron plates is the biggest problem . '

That's why tankers hardly wore scale armor, despite it being classified as heavy armor .  The scale armor had obvious advantages, but there were also obvious limitations .  However, Grid thought of a way to overcome the limitations of scale armor .  It was thanks to the hint from the troll lord's breastplate .

'If I make multiple layers of iron plates, I can maintain the advantages of scale armor while covering the deficient defense . '

Typical scale armor was one layer of joined iron plates . The moment the weapon struck between the plates, the defense was forced to fail .  The troll lord's breastplate minimized this weakness with a double layer of iron plates .  Was it possible that blacksmiths had never thought of this idea? 

No .  Existing blacksmiths also knew that multiple layers of iron plates would increase the defense .  The reason why they didn't make it…

'The higher the iron content, the higher the weight and the more limited the movements . '

In other words, it lost the advantages inherent to scale armor .  Heavy and movement-limiting scale armor? Who would want to use it? If it was going to be inconvenient anyway, they might as well wear heavy armor with much higher defense .

'But the items I make are different . '

Black iron was two times harder and three times lighter than iron .

'I can use this to make the plates as thinly as possible . '

He would make scale armor that was light and easy to move in, even if the iron plates were doubled or tripled .  This wasn’t an easy task .  Black iron smelting was seven times more difficult than iron smelting .  Even Khan, whose blacksmith skill was advanced level 8, wouldn't be able to smelt black iron so thinly and shape hundreds of scales .

However, Grid was different .  Grid's blacksmith skill was legendary level 7 and his dexterity was close to 3,000 .  For him, smelting black iron was just as hard as ordinary blacksmiths smelting iron .

'I'll prove why I'm a legend . '

Compared to other legends, it was true that he was lacking many things when it came to combat . However, as a blacksmith, he could proudly say that he was the best .

Ttang! Ttang!

The taste of holding minerals in his hands was the best . The pleasure was greater compared to when killing monsters .  Grid's concentration rose rapidly as he started hitting the black iron on the anvil .

'The width of the iron plate shouldn't be too wide . ’

The joints between the iron plates increased the flexibility of the scale armor . Grid wanted the iron plates to have a narrow width, in order to maximize the characteristics .  However, the smaller the plates, the longer the working time .

In particular, the number of iron plates increased because he needed to make three layers .  It was impossible to make hundreds of small iron plates and join them together, even if it took two full days .

But Grid was a craftsman .  The increasing workload? It didn't matter .  It was necessary if he wanted to make better items .

Ttang! Ttang!

Small and thin black iron pieces were refined in Grid's hands .  The appearance, size, and shine reminded him of black dragon scales .

'Beautiful scales . '

'The scales are at least three times smaller than the scales of typical scale armor, but the details are much better . The technique of the duke is really delicate . '

'Wow… It seems like he has made over 100 already? How many is the duke planning to make?’

'This would be incredibly boring and difficult work for me . '

Khan and the young blacksmiths were amazed at Grid's workmanship and care .

[The Legendary Blacksmith's Patience skill has been activated . ] 

[Concentration, stamina and defense will rise to the extremes for one hour . ]

[The Legendary Blacksmith's Breath skill has been activated . ]

[The Legendary Blacksmith's Breath has increased the effectiveness of your production items]

The roosters cried out at dawn .  Beyond the blacksmith's window, the spires of the castle rose in the distance . However, Grid didn't take a break .

Ttang! Ttang!

Grid relied on his high stamina to continue making the iron plates .  He devoted himself to work, despite the day passing and it becoming night again . Excluding meal time and sleeping time, he never released his hammer .

Then two days later .

[You have successfully made the 'Scale Armor . '] 

[The structure is different from the 'Scale Armor' on your production list . ]

[Analyzing the scale armor . ]

[The function of your scale armor is phenomenal . ]

[Scale Armor (Enhanced)]

Scale armor modified by the legendary blacksmith Grid .

Unlike conventional scale armor, it has a triple layer of iron plates .

Black iron is used to minimize the weight, and 621 iron plates were made as small as possible in order to increase the range of movement .

"…?"

[Scale Armor (Enhanced)]

Scale armor modified by the legendary blacksmith Grid .

Grid felt a sense of deja vu from these words .  At first, he couldn't think of anything, but then he remembered .

[Magic Missile (Enhanced)]

A magic missile developed by the legendary great magician who has completely overturned the activation formula .

Yes, it was Braham's magic .  Just as Braham strengthened existing magic, Grid was able to strengthen existing items .  At this moment, Grid was able to truly understand why he was a legendary blacksmith .

[Please decide the name of the item you have created . ]

The system asked before listing the item's ratings and options .

"Um . "

Grid thought carefully and came to a conclusion .

‘I made three layers of iron plates . '

It matched well with the three-layered meat that Koreans were familiar with .

“Let's call it Three Layers . "

It was the worst .  Lauel would've tried anything to stop Grid if he was present .  Unfortunately, Lauel wasn't here .  For the sake of Reidan's future, Lauel was busy interacting with female NPCs and didn't care about Grid .  It was really a pity .

[Have you decided on 'Three Layers?']

"Yes . "

['Three Layers' has been added to the list of item production methods!]

[Three Layers has been completed . ]

Scale armor modified by the legendary blacksmith Grid .

The 621 small, iron plates made by hand and joined into three layers has ensured a high defense and range of movement .

In addition, each iron plate has a small groove . If the enemy's weapon strikes it, there is a certain probability of the weapon being damaged .

Like the black dragon scales, these 621 iron plates will shine whenever the wearer moves .

Ogre's blood was used to increase the durability of the leather straps, slightly increasing the strength of the wearer .

"Wow . "

It had been two and a half years since he became Pagma's Descendant . Not in game time, but in real time .  Grid had made a huge number of items in the meantime, but only 12 legendary items so far .  He had no luck, despite being a legendary blacksmith .

Thus, Grid cleared his mind .  In the process of making items, Grid didn't dare think about making legendary items .

But today .  He had a hard time over the past few months due to the Behen Archipelago, and now he made a legendary item after a long time .  Grid was filled with anticipation .

"Finally… Finally, the heavens knows my skills and heart . "

Being rewarded for their efforts, it might be natural for geniuses, but not ordinary people .  No matter how hard they tried, they often didn't get reasonable rewards .  It was particularly bad for Grid .

But now Grid's efforts were seeing results .  It was a result achieved through Grid's growth .

"Okay… Keep this momentum going . "

Grid was very pleased with the result .  The material used for the Holy Light Set was adamantium, so the options and durability were much better . However, the defense of the Three Layers was superior .

“Next is the helmet and leggings . "

The balance patch to the National Competition that nerfed him?

[Grid's attack power, which is his biggest weapon, is suppressed . ]

Grid smiled as he recalled that headline .

'I'm not a damage dealer . '

Items were flexible .  An overgeared person could be a damage dealer or tanker .  In this National Competition, Grid was planning to show off an attack power that didn't yield to the patch, as well as his defense .  In other words, he would be a flawless damage dealer tank that would overturn the world .

Ttang! Ttang!

The helmet, leggings, and gauntlet were gradually completed, while Lantier's Cloak was reproduced through Item Creation .  It wasn't long before he would become a matchless overgeared person .

Chapter 407

Cloak .

It referred to a coat hanging from the shoulders without any sleeves .  From a general point of view, tailors made cloaks because the commonly used materials were cloth and leather .

But blacksmiths also knew how to make cloaks .  It was natural .  Blacksmiths made all types of leather armor, and due to this they were also skilled at making cloaks .

Of course, it was a reality that the options and designs lagged behind cloaks made by tailors, since they were specialists in cloth and leather . However, the blacksmith cloaks had better basic defense .

From that point of view, Lantier's Cloak was clearly made by a blacksmith .

'The cloak stopped my blade . '

What was the quality and elasticity of the cloak that it couldn't even be torn by Noe's claws? Grid thought about it during his return journey to Reidan .  He actively used his knowledge and experience as Pagma's Descendant, looking at every type of leather .  The leather he came up with?

'None . '

Of course, there were some leathers that were as hard as rocks that were excellent in defense .  Typical examples were minotaur leather and blue griffin leather .  In fact, they were used as materials for the best leather armor .  But they weren't appropriate as a material for a cloak .

'It's too thick and heavy . They aren't soft enough, despite being leather . '

Making a cloak with it? Rather than a cloak, it was more like a box . There was no utility as a cloak .  If so, what was Lantier's Cloak made out of?

'I bet it isn't cloth . '

Pagma had prepared the equipment for Lantier, who became a death knight . Pagma was a blacksmith, so he couldn't handle cloth at a high level .

'Wait . '

A smile appeared on Grid's face as he recalled something .  He remembered that with Lantier's Cloak, the inside and outside were different colors .

'The outer part is black . '

And the inner lining was red .

'Pagma used two types of leather to increase the defense of the cloak . '

Once he realized this, he knew that he didn't have to cling to minotaur or griffin leather .  The durability might be lower, but there were more suitable leathers to make the cloak .   Now Grid went through the different types of leather to find a red and black one .

'…None?'

The black leather wasn't too much trouble, but there was no red leather . The only one similar to red leather was the pink leather of the lizard queen .

'The lizard queen's leather is too hard to be used as the inner lining of the cloak…'

In the past week, Grid had completed his armor, helmet, and leggings .  He faced a challenge when he tried to recreate Lantier's Cloak using the Legendary Blacksmith's Creation skill .

***

Her eyes were confident and her mouth relaxed .  Yura was filled with unique intellectual charm and was the most beautiful woman in Asia .  Her hairstyle had changed somehow .  Her ebony hair fell down and reached her chest .

'I am ashamed . '

Yura blushed as she stood in a full-length mirror .  The pink flush on her white face was reminiscent of a peach .

'It feels awkward . '

Her short dress revealed her thighs . It highlighted Yura's ideal figure .  Yura normally wore jeans, simple t-shirts, or suits, so she couldn't adapt to her appearance in the mirror .  She shivered shyly at the thought of going out with her body exposed .  Honestly, she wanted to change her clothes right now .

'But . '

Today she was meeting Grid . In other words, she was meeting Shin Youngwoo .  She wanted to increase her favorability with the first man she was interested in .  Therefore, she changed her style .  It was to match Grid's taste .

The problem was her breast size .  Didn't Grid like at least a D cup?

“…"

Yura thought about borrowing the power of items, but shook her head .  It was a matter of pride . She was already bigger than average .

On this day .

"Heok…"

"…Wow . "

"I don't care if I die right now!"

The men who witnessed Yura on the streets cried out emotionally, regardless of their age .  There were some people who vowed never to wash their eyes .

***

Ding dong~

There were 3 days remaining until the National Competition .

Someone visited Youngwoo's house .

"Ohh~! God Grid!"

It was Peak Sword .

Youngwoo frowned in dislike at his loud voice .

"You're as lively as ever . "

“I have to welcome God Grid, so of course I will be energetic!"

"Ah, really . "

Peak Sword was like Khan .  They were people who had an infinite affection towards Grid . He couldn't be disgusted by such people .  Shin Youngwoo laughed and wore slippers onto the porch .

"Hoh?"

Light blue old slippers and a green training suit .  Peak Sword was impressed as he looked Youngwoo up and down .  Youngwoo's body was much fitter than it was several months ago . His broad shoulders and thick thighs were very good .

“Last time, you were jogging every morning . Now it seems like you are constantly working out as well?"

“I need to be healthy so I can focus more on the game . "

That's right .  He couldn't play the game without stamina . In particular, the fatigue of virtual reality games was very high .

"This is a very good attitude . But what are those severe dark circles under your eyes? Have you been sleeping lately?"

"I'm making a few items before the National Competition… Huh?"

Youngwoo, who came out of the house, discovered the car that Peak Sword was standing next to and felt astonished .  Peak Sword saw his expression and asked earnestly .

"How is it? Isn't my new car very good? It is a rare sports sedan that can stand side-by-side next to God Grid's 800 million won 13 series . Right?"

"…Moonlight blue . "

Youngwoo was paying attention to the color of Peak Sword's car .  It was blue under the sunlight, but black when in the shade .

'Don't tell me…!'

The red leather that made up Lantier's Cloak .  It might not be red .  After remembering that the 61st island was covered with flames, Youngwoo was enlightened and rushed into his house .

“I'm going back into the game!"

"Eh? H-Huh?"

Peak Sword panicked .  Wasn't today the day when he promised to attend the operational meeting with the participations of the Korean national team? Now he was going to one-sidedly withdraw from that promise?

“We can work out the plans, but Yura will be disappointed…"

Yura and Peak Sword were friends since a long time ago .  Peak Sword one-sidedly followed Yura after joining the 'Do you know club?', but he could still be regarded as a friend .  In particular, after their reunion in the Overgeared Guild, they became closer and Peak Sword was able to notice that Yura was attracted to Youngwoo .  She would be worried about what to wear today, but Youngwoo…

"Well, this is fine . "

This was God Grid, who broke the sky .  The only Korean player who could be viewed as Satisfy's best .  Peak Sword didn't want to disturb him . He respected Youngwoo's choice, since it would eventually boost the status of South Korea .

As a result, Yura became depressed .

“…Youngwoo-ssi isn't coming?"

"Ah, eh, yes…"

“…"

The finest Korean restaurant in Gangnam .

Yura, who was waiting for Youngwoo and Peak Sword with the other participants of the National Competition, changed clothes .  She put on a white shirt and jeans instead of the alluring one piece dress that showed off her body .

The men in the room were forced to blame Youngwoo, while the women could be freed from their feelings of self-consciousness .  

***

"Yes, this is it! Why didn't I think of this?"

Reidan's super large smithy .

As soon as he reconnected to the game, Grid opened the 'Item Production List' and cheered .  The item he was looking at was the leather armor that he gave to Faker a few months back .
