Duk .

A black object fell and dirtied the marble floor . It was the chocolate pudding that Grid was eating .

“ . . . ”

The South Korean team’s waiting room . Grid had lost his soul . He didn’t even notice that the expensive pudding he normally didn’t buy had fallen to the ground .

“God Grid? Hey, God Grid!”

Peak Sword noticed Grid’s unusual state . He grabbed Grid’s shoulder and randomly shook it .  He couldn’t help feeling worried . Among the many snacks available in the waiting room, Grid had only picked the most expensive chocolate pudding . He had already eaten six consecutive ones!

"Hey! I told you! I told you it was dangerous if you consumed so much sugar at once! But you . . . ! You just said that freebies are good . . . ! Hey! God Grid!! Wake up! Look into my eyes!”

‘ . . . It’s different from the image I imagined . ’

The representatives’ images of Overgeared King Grid and Peak Sword was very big . In particular, Grid and Peak Sword were heroes and idols to the young rankers participating on the Korean team this year . They imagined a noble image .  However, reality was the exact opposite of their imagination . They seemed like neighborhood idiots .

But why weren’t they disappointed? Grid and Peak Sword had no authority?  Well, it was better to be friendly and comfortable .  

"It's okay . I was just thinking about something else . ”

In the turmoil, Grid belatedly regained his mind and focused on the screen again . He watched Yura hunt monsters and gather the ‘proof of strength . ’

“Really . . . Really strong . ”

In fact, he hadn’t expressed it, but Grid had been worried about Yura . She had been in the top position . How hard would it be for her to be in a slump for more than a year after becoming a Demon Slayer? 

“Demon Slayer . . . ”

A conditional class that exerted exceptional power in certain conditions .  It was a good fit for ordinary people like Grid . However, it was poison for a versatile person like Yura . It was a poison that regulated Yura’s talents, who could act in various fields . Grid worried that Yura had been regretting her choice .

' . . . I would certainly regret it . ’

But she didn’t . She walked alone without relying on anyone . Then she descended to hell .  This was the result . Yura succeeded in returning as a dominant power in the National Competition .

"Good work . "

Grid was someone who always tried . He knew how much Yura had done for this moment . Thus, he was in awe .

“God Grid . . . ”

Peak Sword handed a tissue to Grid with a solemn expression . There was no handkerchief .

[The crystal skeleton has been defeated . ]

[All the Proofs of Strength have been gathered . Visit Andrew Village and meet the chief . He will give you the second version of the ‘Saint Sword’s Song . ’]

 

‘I shouldn’t overlap with Kraugel . ’

Had Kraugel already collected all the proofs? Or was he still at the collecting stage? According to Yura’s calculations, it was naturally the former .

‘I might meet Kraugel if I go directly to the village . ’

She didn’t want to admit it, but even if they were both legendary classes, Sword Saint Kraugel’s combat ability was much better . The pressure that Yura felt when she was hit a while ago was considerable .  If Yura had pulled the gun a bit later then she was likely to be hit . Kraugel’s strength was beyond what she had expected .

‘If only Hell Leap was a bit more stable . . . ’

It was the trump card that Yura acquired by clearing a hidden Demon Slayer quest . Unfortunately, it was difficult to use .  It was a skill that temporarily moved the user’s body ‘somewhere’ in hell .  No one could guarantee where the caster would fall . In the worst case, she could fall where a great demon was or directly onto hell fire .

In fact, 30 minutes ago, Yura used Hell Leap during her confrontation with Kraugel and fell right in front of the castle of the 15th great demon . She was caught by a red monster guarding the gates and even the legendary passive couldn’t completely resist the ‘absolute petrification . ’ The agility of her body fell significantly .

“Hah . ”

Yura couldn’t help letting out a sigh .  She lamented being weaker than Kraugel despite also being a legend . Her level was even higher . She had passed level 300 before the start of the National Competition, while Kraugel was still in the mid-200s .  Even so, Yura had a low chance of winning in a frontal confrontation .

‘ . . . No, it’s an excuse . ’

Class wasn’t the only important thing . The grim reality was proven when the normal class Kraugel had defeated Grid .

‘Hurry . ’ Acting in front of Kraugel wasn’t her first choice . She would miss the gold medal if she kept avoiding Kraugel . Then there would be no meaning in participating in the saint sword drawing .  ‘I can’t avoid a fight with Kraugel . ’

Yura realized the cold reality and ran to Andrew Village . She wished that Grid’s support would bring her good luck .

"Ah, they met again . ”

“Yura is pitiful . ”

“Isn’t it really dangerous this time?”

It was two and a half hours since saint sword drawing started .  By the time most participants acquired the third verse of the Saint Sword’s Song, Kraugel and Yura were on the last verse and encountered each other again .  It was their sixth clash . No matter how much Yura was damaged, she kept chasing after Kraugel .

As the confrontations continued, Kraugel’s side overwhelmed Yura .  Kraugel’s combat adaptability was unmatched . In the repeated battles, he grasped the unique characteristics of a Demon Slayer and reversed them completely to neutralize Yura . Now it was hard for Yura to resist . The only path she could choose was to retreat from Kraugel’s swordsmanship . She didn’t look back when she met Kraugel and used Hell Leap .

In the process . . .

“Heok! What?”

“Now she is summoning a demonkin?”

The people were startled at the sight of Yura .  She disappeared with a red light and reappeared through a black hole with something on her shoulder . People naturally assumed it was a demonkin that she summoned . But the demonkin was biting her shoulder .

‘What?’

The commentators, crowd, and even Kraugel was confused at the situation . They couldn’t understand why Yura had ended up like this . But they noticed it within a few minutes .

‘No way, has she been going to hell every time she uses the skill?’

It had been like this from the beginning . When she disappeared and reappeared, Yura often seemed injured or affected by a status condition . It was obvious that the teleportation skill she used was different from normal instantaneous movements .

“Isn’t this skill too dangerous?”

Kraugel asked as if he knew everything . But Yura’s expression didn’t change at all .

“I don’t know what you mean . ”

Sakak-!

Yura cut off the demonkin biting at her shoulder and pointed her gun at Kraugel . She had to open the distance and recover enough resources to make full use of Hell Leap . Kraugel read her intentions and tried to narrow the distance, but she was the sky above the sky for female users . She didn’t allow him to easily narrow the distance .

“Oh! Kraugel is a completely bad guy!”

Grid was extremely agitated .  It was because Kraugel hunting Yura instead of proceeding with the quests was too hateful .

"Can’t you share a gold medal and silver medal? Why are you acting like you want to eat everything?”

"It’s because he acknowledges Yura’s skills . There’s a chance he might miss the gold medal if he spares her . ”

Like the other player, Eat Spicy Jokbal was concentrating on the game . Viola, the woman in a hanbok sitting next to him nodded as if she agreed .

"That lady, she’s too strong . ”

It was obvious that Kraugel was one level higher . The problem was that so far, only Grid had managed to go against Kraugel . In people’s eyes, the difference in skills between the two people was minimal .

“But what the hell is that Hell Leap?”

“Yes . I thought it was simply a fraudulent movement skill, but now a monster has come out . ”

Yura once again retreated . She escaped from Kraugel and lurked in the forest, escaping from a great crisis for now . Grid’s throat became parched as he felt relief . He was just grabbing a soda when a security guard approached him .

"That . . . A guest has come . ”

"Guest? Who is it?”

Who would come to the South Korean team while the National Competition event was going on? The security guard replied to the confused Grid .

“Panmir of the US team . ”

“ . . . ?”

The first ranked blacksmith since Satisfy opened . He was the person who made Grid participate in the blacksmithing event in last year’s National Competition .

‘Is he coming to ask me to participate this year?’

After thinking about last year’s incident, Grid laughed and left the waiting room . Panmir was an opponent difficult to ignore . Grid respected his position but didn’t fear him . Grid was familiar with Panmir’s craftsmanship . He understood the sense of deprivation Panmir felt because Grid was a legendary blacksmith . Panmir was an opponent Grid had to be careful of in many ways .

“It has been a while . ”

Grid discovered Panmir in the hallway and spoke first .  Panmir had more grey hair than last year . But his solid body and strong eyes didn’t make him look old . He looked like Khan would’ve 15 years younger .

“I’ll speak bluntly . ” Panmir responded to Grid’s greeting and immediately got to the subject . “This year, I will beat you . ”

“ . . . ”

No, this was the only reason why he came? It was disturbing his day with this silly thing . Grid couldn’t hide his displeasure and frowned . Panmir added, “Even if I win, it doesn’t necessary mean I’m better than you . Your craftsmanship and perseverance in manually making each item is naturally better than me . Nevertheless, there’s a reason I can say that I will beat you . ”

Panmir stopped speaking and pulled out a thin booklet . It was the book that described the rules for the blacksmithing event .

"It’s due to the manipulation of the organizers . ”

From this year on, the rules of the blacksmithing event changed .  Last year, all participants made the ‘same item’ with the ‘same design . ’ But this year, the participants could make the item they wanted with any design .  The most important change was the victory criteria .

Unlike last year, where the ‘comprehensive value’ was judged based on the item’s ability, this year’s blacksmith event only looked at the ‘rating’ of the item . The criteria was changed so that those who produced unconditionally high rated items would receive good evaluations .   Growth type items were no exception . It didn’t matter if the item could grow to the legendary rating . If it was a normal rating when it was finished, the gold medal would be lost .

Panmir spoke with straightforward eyes .

“Haven’t you already noticed? The reason why the rules and evaluation criteria for the blacksmithing event changed this year was to keep you in check . ”

Even if items of the same rank were produced, Grid’s items would have higher average stats . If the criteria for evaluating items were just stats, the winner of the blacksmithing event would be Grid .

This was why the organizers changed the evaluation criteria for items .

"Changing the rules to keep a certain player in check . . . In your position, I would feel that it’s unfair . ”

"What do you want to say?”

"I want to tell you not to take it personally if you lose to me in this event . You aren’t worse than me . You were just defeated by the organizers . ”

“ . . . ”

What type of confidence was this? The biggest problem was that Panmir was speaking with good intentions . Grid was forced to shut up because he was too embarrassed to reply .

Panmir smiled bitterly at him .

"I achieved level 280 and completed three hidden quests . Now I have a 0 . 01% chance of producing legendary rated items . In addition, my items will be at least epic rated . . . I can make crazily fraudulent items . So prepare your heart . Then I’m going . ”

After a while, Panmir left and Grid was left alone scratching his head .

"The conclusion is that you are worried about me?”

He knew for a long time that Panmir was a person with excellent craftsmanship . But Grid didn’t know Panmir was such a gracious and sensitive person .

‘I’m sorry . . . ’

Grid wouldn’t show mercy to Panmir . At present, Panmir could never imagine that Grid was holding back a surprise card .
