Chapter 8: Armour Taken Away

8) Armour Taken Away

Weed’s health was only just over 40,000 at best. He had low health and resilience compared to his level but he overcame it with perseverance and his armour.

Bardray’s attack was powerful enough that he lost 17,000 health. The Black Knight had high level equipment and various blessings placed on him so a frontal attack was extremely successful.


Weed was thrown back and fell to the ground.


Torido rushed out to oppose Bardray. He could attack and defend but Torido couldn’t fight in a one on one battle without getting injured. Fortunately Torido was in a good condition compared to Van Hawk because he could suck blood to recover.

‘This method won’t work.’

Weed touched his chest where his armour was crumpled. Bardray’s level was definitely higher than his own. His attack skills were also superior. Aside from Radiant Sword, he didn’t any useful skills to fight against Bardray with.

The thing that differentiated Weed from other users was his much higher stats. The stats stacked due to his sculptor skill, blacksmith skill and sewing skills so they were a big help.

Bardray raised his stats by clearing dungeons, hunting boss class monsters and completing difficult quests with the Hermes Guild.

If compared than their stats would be at an almost equal level.

Right now Weed needed a drastic measure. Disaster Nature Sculpting!

‘A volcanic eruption, earthquake, landslide, mine collapse or even filling it with water would be nice.’

But Disaster Nature Sculpting required an appropriate sculpture to use it. Even if  Weed had a sculpture of a volcanic eruption then it was also likely that he would die as well. If the disaster was too big then it was highly likely that he would break his own rice bowl! If he caused a volcanic eruption then he couldn’t escape the cave so he would be caught up in it.

‘There’s also Summon Sculpture but I don’t want to use that.’

He could summon some sculptural lifeforms as reinforcement. But this place was too confined for Phoenix and Bingryong to play an active role. The wyverns were too weak so he couldn’t bring them. Goldman and Yellowy had struggled in the Jigolaths so he would feel sorry if they had to struggle on the brink of death again. The King Hydra would but suitable but the Red Belkain was here so it might turn into a situation where they fought each other instead.

“I need to do this by myself.”

Weed decided to fight alone. In the worst case situation he would just lose a bit of experience, skill proficiency and an equipment.

“I have to gather myself and try again. Bardray, I can truly feel the power of the person called the strongest on the Versailles Continent.”

Weed had never met a rival before. He had a few exchanges with people from prestigious guilds on quests but he had always been stronger. Now the target he wanted to fight was Bardray! His life would fly away if he was defeated but for now he had courage. If a drop of soy sauce was buried with bean sprouts then it wouldn’t be afraid to sprout anywhere on the Versailles Continent.

Weed wound a bandage around his body at a fast pace. Torido’s health was rapidly falling as he duelled with Bardray. This was due to the holy damage received from the priests’ support.


He fought a lot harder when his health fell. Weed inwardly thought ‘Torido, I’m going now.’ He was thinking of landing a surprise blow on Bardray. The surprise attack wasn’t effective.


“Bardray-nim, danger!”

The Hermes Guild’s priests watching the battle noticed it seconds before he struck. The fight against the Red Belkain had become stable so many eyes were turned towards Bardray. The Red Belkain was losing health and vitality under the onslaught.

Weed ran to Bardray’s side.

“Seven Celestial Footsteps!”

It was a technique that could change the direction of each step! With Wind Sprint also activated, he moved so fast that afterimages could be seen.

“I’ve been waiting for you to come.”

Bardray blocked with his sword like he already knew about it. Weed knew that there was a limit to his attacks.

‘The performance of his armour is really amazing. I’ve barely done any damage to him.’

If a strong attack was about to be used then he needed to take advantage of the time required for Bardray to activate it. Weed immediately turned sideways and continued his offensive.

“Sword Dance!”

Brandish, stab, slash!

The continuous swordsmanship made it difficult to even respond. He was looking for a gap in Bardray’s defense.

“This isn’t enough.”

Bardray said as he blocked the sword. Some attacks he missed while some he blocked brilliantly. Weed moved to the side and continued attacking. Although Bardray tried to take one or two steps backwards to counterattack but Weed just struck more harshly.

‘The differences between level and equipment is somewhat reduced in close combat. If it doesn’t take one or two hits then I will hit him a hundred thousand times!’

Weed’s speed was so quick that Bardray couldn’t stop everything.

-Your sword has been blocked by the defense.

You have hit the shoulder armour of your opponent!

An accurate attack has succeeded.

The armour has absorbed a lot of the sword’s destructive power.

Vitality has been reduced by 149.

-Your sword has clashed with the other sword.
-Your sword has pierced the enemy’s chest.

An accurate attack has succeeded.

A fatal blow!

The opponent is wearing an item that gives immunity to confusion and paralysis.

Health has been reduced by 617.

Weed’s sword was incredibly fast. The attack speed was almost impossible to believe. Bardray blocked with his sword at an angle and aimed for a counterattack.

“Quite good.”

But Bardray grasped the fact that Weed’s offensive power was weaker after their swords clashed. Weed’s movements might be fast but Bardray didn’t have to stop every attack. Bardray fought back and the battle between the two of them became even fiercer.

He remembered something Geomchi said when sparring.

-Look at your opponent. If you look straight at the opponent then you won’t lose.

He looked at Bardray’s eyes, shoulders and muscles hidden by the armour. The sound of swords hitting each other rang out through Belkain’s lair like a musical instrument. Weed concentrated his nerves as he battled carefully.

Flames flew forcefully as the two swords clashed. The flames were like a tumultuous wave! Bardray didn’t see a message window.

‘It really is enough to make me nervous.’

Weed’s level was definitely lower and Bardray was overwhelming in many aspects. The difference between the power and skill when handling a sword was obvious. However his continuous, aggressive attacks meant Bardray lost the initiative and was forced on the defense.

‘It is good that I met him now. It might’ve been dangerous if I met him later.’

Weed would grow very quickly while continuing his adventures. Bardray considered it fortunate that they encountered each other right now.

‘I will thoroughly defeat him. He will be unable to face me again.’

His level was high enough to bully people. He wanted to prove that the Black Knight had the ultimate power so Bardray’s sword dealt some serious damage. He estimated that they were trivial attacks and his armour absorbed most of the damage.

He just needed to defend his weak points and counterattack against Weed. Of course, if he used his wide area skills than this fight could end more easily.

“If this is the extent of your skills then it is time to die.”

Bardray strongly wielded his sword.

“Spatial Destruction!”

Spatial Destruction occurred in the entire radius around them!  A colossal wind swept through the area.


“Treat us faster!”

The Hermes Guild members fighting the Red Belkain also received damage. The priests hurriedly used healing magic. Usually a boss monster hunt would get all the attention but the top priority was Bardray’s battle with Weed.

Weed passed behind Bardray’s back. Thanks to the ‘Excellent Experience’ skill and his agility, he was able to grasp the direction of the attack as soon as the skill was used. He was able to move quickly because of the rise in agility gained from Sculptural Destruction!

Until now he hadn’t been that tense about the series of attacks. It might be difficult but he also felt that it was fun.

‘My vitality won’t hold……’

Weed’s vitality stat had reached 423 points thanks to making sculptures and production skills. Wind Sprint and Seven Star Form meant he could quickly change directions. Unfortunately his speed decreased as his vitality fell. It would be difficult for Weed to continue fighting Bardray with low health and vitality.

Then the Hermes Guild magicians secretly gathered together and chanted a spell.

“The caught body will be held and can’t move. Twilight Pressure!”

It was a magic to restrict movement!

Weed’s magic resistance was decent but it failed to block the spell from a coalition of senior magicians. Breaking the binding would require a significant amount of time and magic items. In the meantime, Bardray turned towards him.

“The time has come for you to die.”

Bardray’s sword was covered with a pure white flame.

“Noble Sword. Saint Flame.”

Weed tried to avoid it but his foot wouldn’t move.

“This! My leg……”

He tried to stop him but it was meaningless. Weed tried to call Torido but he had changed into a bat and was too busy avoiding the arrows to come and help.

“Close Eyes Tightly!”

Weed covered his body with the Ancient Sword and struck a defense pose. Bardray’s sword was swung. The warrior’s sword struck Weed completely. It wouldn’t be easy to catch Weed again if he missed so Bardray poured all his power into this attack.

-Your strength and vitality has decreased and you can’t properly defend.

A fatal blow!

-You have received a massive attack and died.

Additional damage is caused by the flames.

You don’t have the help from high rank healing magic or water spirits so your health will decrease by 475 every second..

Your waist protective piece has received a blow beyond its limits and has been destroyed.

-The effect of Seulroeo’s Wedding Ring isn’t applied due to the drastic drop in health.
-Your health has decreased and you have died.

The skill level of ‘Power to Reject Death’ is low. The skill isn’t activated thanks to the holy power entering your body.

It is impossible to log in for 24 hours. Your skill level and proficiency has declined due to your death.


Weed disappeared into a grey light after Bardray’s attack.

“Hooray Bardray-nim!”

“He won! Bardray-nim is the strongest in the continent!”

The Hermes Guild members cheered at the historic victory. Congratulations poured over the guild chat.

Bardray had made his competitors kneel in many battles. But their chests trembled at the thought that millions of people would be watching it through the broadcasting stations.

“This armour.”

Bardray picked up the Talrock’s Armour that Weed had dropped. The size of the armour wasn’t different from some of the other japtem dropped from the monsters in the Melbourne Mine.

‘This armour isn’t that good. He was wearing something like this to fight?’

The Talrock’s Armour didn’t even register in Bardray’s eyes. He found the best items and wore legendary equipment so this armour was just disappointing to him.


The Black Lion Guild had dismantled all the traps and arrived on the 4th underground floor.

“Those guys should be in the dungeon. Let’s go.”

Carlise and the elite members of the Black Lion Guild moved. Hegel, Alice and Dine had already been discovered by the assassins and died!

When they arrived at the lair the Red Belkain was almost dead. The continuous attacks from Bardray, the Royal Guards and the battle company meant the momentum of the hunt was in their favour. Even the assassins helped by hitting the Red Belkain in the back.

The Red Belkain cried out as he continued dying. He would exert more power as his life decreased but the users were experienced in fighting boss monsters.


The prepared arrows and magic were launched. The Red Belkain was interrupted and couldn’t concentrate on using his skills. There were also shamans in the battle company that helped in decreasing the monster’s attack, defense, vitality, strength and concentration.

-The Red Belkain in the Melbourne Mine has entered its eternal rest.

The hunt was a success! Bardray delivered the final blow and also monopolized the loot. A recording of the Black Knight’s swordsmanship was obtained.

“The 12th stage of the Black Knight Quest has been fulfilled.”

“Congratulations Commander-nim.”

“There isn’t much left in the future.”

Carlise had brought 750 people from the Black Lion Guild. They came to reclaim their territory from the Hermes Guild running wild in the Melbourne Mine.


The Black Lion Guild fired off magic attacks. The conflict between the core power of two giant guilds started.


The special KMC broadcast with Oh Joo-wan was in progress!

“Ah, look at the Black Lion Guild.”

“Today is certainly an unforgettable day. The magician Puroyan is now using the large scale ice magic, Ice Storm.”

“The ground has frozen so that will be a problem for the knights of the Hermes Guild.”

“This is still too premature to judge but from Oh Joo-wan ssi’s view, who do you think will win?”

“It’s really hard to know before the results come out. The Hermes Guild generally is much more powerful than other guilds and they have Bardray……”

“Are you saying the Hermes Guild will win?”

“Yes. I will give it to the Hermes Guild.”

Many broadcasters reporting on the battle between the two guilds predicted that the Hermes Guild would be superior.

The battle group was filled while outstanding users and the Royal Guards had a large number of users with their level unknown. They also weren’t busy hunting the Red Belkain anymore. There was no chance if Bardray and the Royal Guards came out.

“Ah! Now assassins have showed up behind the Black Lion Guild and are attacking. It is an ambush and they assassinated the priests first.”

Even if the host didn’t talk, the video looked incredibly violent. The Hermes Guild sent a video and the Black Lion Guild also agreed to cooperate and send in their side. The location of the battle kept changing and the sight was enough to make someone’s mouth drop open.

The elite of the high level guilds fought together in the midst of explosions, lights and noise. Meanwhile shamans and necromancers were summoning the undead and spirits.

The team were editing the video in real time and adding effects so they had no time to go to the restroom. The production team also talked about Weed’s battle with Bardray while working.

“Weed died……”

“Oh, Weed the God of War is no match for Bardray.”

Bardray’s victory was also discussed on Royal Road’s various bulletin boards.

Many people talked about Bardray’s use of various blessings and fighting against the tired Weed, calling it a cowardly victory. A few people mentioned how Weed tried to use the Red Belkain to conquer the disadvantage of the battle.

The audience rating already wasn’t a concern anymore. There was no doubt that today would have the highest ratings. It should’ve been a happy day from the position of the station but KMC Media who often reported on Weed’s adventures was disappointed.

CTS Media and LK Games were also talking more about Weed and Bardray’s fight than the battle between the Hermes Guild and the Black Lion Guild.


Seo-yoon went to the beauty salon to do her makeup and hair. She also bought clothes at the department stores.

‘I should cook a dish.’

She wanted to go to the mart in order to cheer up Lee Hyun.

Bardray and the Hermes Guild had defeated the Black Lion Guild. The Hermes Guild had elite members and were tactically superior compared to the hastily gathered Black Lion Guild. The priests, magicians and warriors all cooperated together after the Red Belkain was killed. On the other hand, the rushed Black Lion Guild couldn’t cooperate properly so they couldn’t demonstrate their full abilities.

Bardray and the Royal Guards. Bardray overwhelmingly won in a confrontation with the head of the Black Lion Guild but he was out of mana afterwards. In a perfect trap, 200 more reinforcements from the Hermes Guild had showed up on the 4th floor.

Pale, Irene, Surka, Hwaryeong, Romuna, Zephyr, Seechwi and Seo-yoon belatedly arrived as the Hermes Guild were leaving the Melbourne Mine. Needless to say, they were killed by the wide range attacks from the archers and magicians with Bardray.

Seo-yoon could penetrate through the large number of attacks to kill 7 knights but she eventually died under the concentrated firepower. The Hermes Guild then strolled to a special teleport gate and disappeared.

Seo-yoon was more worried about Lee Hyun than dying in Royal Road. He had a high pride as the God of War only to be killed. In fact, it was difficult to win every time. She had failed many times when participating in quests or hunting monsters. But he had died and even lost armour so his heartache would be too big.

‘I need to be beautiful and give him comfort.’

Seo-yoon headed to Lee Hyun’s house with a shopping cart. Then she saw a neighbourhood grandmother dressed in shabby clothes and pushing a cart full of recyclables.

“I’ll help you.”

Seo-yoon took the handle from the grandmother. She wanted to see Lee Hyun but the cart looked heavy.

“Young Lady, you don’t need to do something like this….. It is quite heavy so pushing isn’t easy.”

Syu syu syu syu syuk!

The cart steadily moved! Seo-yoon gently pushed the cart and said.

“Where are you going?”

“To my house to finish some work.”

“Then let me know where your house is. I’ll take you.”

“You don’t have to do that……”

“I want to.”

“It is pretty far Young Lady.”

“It’s okay. I am able to take you.”

If Seo-yoon told Lee Hyun about a good deed then he might feel less sad. She didn’t want to see Lee Hyun with a sad face. She felt the need to quickly go and soothe his pain so that he wouldn’t be sad. If he had only died then she wouldn’t worry so much but he had lost the Talrock’s Armour.

Seo-yoon guided the grandmother up the slope.

‘The place isn’t too far……’

When she climbed up the slope in Lee Hyun’s neighbourhood, there were narrow and shabby houses gathered together which was where the grandmother lived.

“By the way Young Lady.”

“Yes, Grandmother.”

“Are you heading towards the house where there is a pomegranate and fig tree in the courtyard?”

Lee Hyun had several fruit trees growing at his house. There were apples, pears, peaches, chestnuts and even oranges.

“How did you know?”

“I’ve seen you a few times.”

The grandmother pushed the cart with Seo-yoon while they climbed the slope.

“Are you dating the young man living in that house?”


“Then why are you visiting his house?”

In the grandmother’s point of view, there was no need to say anything else since she kept on visiting his house.

Seo-yoon’s face turned red.

“I’m glad he seems to have met a good woman. It has eased my heart a little bit.”


“That young man, he is very famous since our neighbourhood is filled with elderly people.”


The fact that Lee Hyun was famous in his neighbourhood was new to Seo-yoon. She was worried that he might’ve done something wrong or committed extortion.

“That young man really lives a tenacious life. He tries to raise his younger sibling decently…..”


“He delivered the milk and newspaper to everyone in the neighbourhood. He even carried all the bags from the market despite the fact that I can’t pay him. Another time he helped me while I was doing a trade at the market. He chased after some thieves that stole something when I wasn’t looking and I really felt sorry looking at his distant form……”


Seo-yoon was finding out how Lee Hyun lived in the past. He lived a hard life so he was diligent even now.

“That young man was able to later buy a house…. It turned out really well. Has it been 1 year and a half since then? I didn’t want him to live like that. Sometimes his body was so sick yet he still conducted business. Even now he is still collecting scrap items in order to live.”

Seo-yoon just listened to the grandmother’s quiet words. The grandmother seemed to be choked up with emotion. She was getting good information about Lee Hyun so she couldn’t say anything.

“Is it difficult for you to come around here? There are a lot of empty bottles and cans in that park.”

The grandmother gave her valuable information about her life. She talked about Lee Hyun again as she looked at the distant mountains.

“Although he could receive various benefits from going to the government’s office, he still needed to raise a sibling.”

His grandmother was in a really difficult situation at that time. He didn’t know when the welfare benefits would come in but survived the winter thanks to support and advice.

“Last winter he placed an electric blanket and kimchi rice in my house at dawn. It wasn’t just me but every elderly person in the area received it. It would’ve cost quite a bit of money…… But there was an old man who saw him place it in the middle of the night.”

“He did.”

“It snowed quite a bit last time so there wasn’t too much work. But the young man still made boxed lunches with seaweed wraps and took it out of his house every day.”

“There is no reason to make it if people don’t eat it. If you like it then please take it. Because I made it just now.”

“Thank you. I don’t know how to pay you back.”

“The food would just go into the garbage bag anyway.”

Lee Hyun and his sister made a lot of food for half a month.

“And he also gave us some medicine. If he sees us become injured then he won’t leave without treating it… The hospital bills are quite high these days but it makes me feel warm whenever he tells me to be careful.”

Tears gathered in Seo-yoon’s eyes. She understood. Lee Hyun had experienced many pains in the past so he could understand the pain of other people.

“He even helped one grandmother to the hospital and paid for the bill when she was worried about it. There is no elderly person in this neighbourhood who hasn’t received the help of that young man. He also bought books for children living without parents and helped them study. His good deeds……”

Seo-yoon headed to Lee Hyun’s house after taking the grandmother home.

Bark bark bark!

The dog was barking in front of the strangely silent house.

‘Don’t tell me……’

Seo-yoon felt her heart sink as she opened the gate. There were 7 different locks on the gate but fortunately she had all the keys in advance. She walked through the yard on trembling legs and stood before the front door. She dimly saw someone lying down in the living room.


Seo-yoon opened the front door and entered the living room. Lee Hyun was lying collapsed on the living room floor.

“Heu heu heu heu heuk.”

Her heart jumped like crazy as tears emerged. The makeup she did in the beauty salon became a mess because of her tears. Seo-yoon’s heart ached as something she never considered happened.

A door that had been closed in her mind broke open.

‘When I was a child… It is the same.’

When Seo-yoon was a very young child, she had seen something she really didn’t want to see.It caused a huge wound in her mind until she met Lee Hyun…..

The person who helped Seo-yoon was lying there collapsed.


She staggered as her legs seemed to lose all power. She was scared to even approach Lee Hyun. Something precious had been taken from her while she was pushing the cart.

“W-why did he do this? Why……?”

Seo-yoon whimpered. A huge wave of sorrow rose inside her and she thought that she might never be able to smile again.

Then Lee Hyun started moving and twitching. He was still alive so the idea of calling an ambulance passed quickly through her head…..


A long yawn came out.

She suddenly saw traces of kimchi fried rice and jjapaghetti (black bean instant noodles) on the table in the living room.

Lee Hyun touched his stomach.

“I carelessly slept after I ate too much and now I need to go to the bathroom.”

Seo-yoon stared at him with tear stained eyes mixed with a violent anger.

    Weed will definately take revenge for sure, i think he will hav geomichis & party and the sculptures with him when he takes his revenge. It talks about how good badrays royal gaurds are at hunting 1 or 2 boss monsters at the same time but u knw wat weed has like 5 or 6 boss class monsters within his arsenal, plus he can make more and grind out the level later. R.I.P badray and hermes guild for making weed angry.

    it’s fine that weed managed to fight bardray since weed is now able to measure up bardgay’s skill so that the next time they meet he (weed) will be able to deploy more countermeasures against bardray


  3. Shinintendo

    Thanks for the chapter.
    some fixes:
    “Aside from Radiant Sword, he didn’t any useful skills to fight against Bardray with.”
    fix: he didn’t have any…

    “The grandmother gave her valuable information about her life. She talked about Lee Hyun again as she looked at the distant mountains.”
    fix: about his life

    I think it’s a good thing he got killed,now they will finally stop hunting him and he can take his time to prepare for his epic revenge.


  5. Aure94100

    Bardray the winner ? Are you kidding me ?! Are we in the same reality ?

    Are the people’s eyes in this novel rotten* ? No … because … there was no real confrontation 1VS1 here. It was just Bardray (+ Hermes Guild) VS Weed (alone).
    Bardray was buffed, healed all the time and his guild attacked and restreined Weed constantly while there was “fighting”. I didn’t see any duel (wiki. duality).
    So where’s Barday superior to Weed ?
    It was just 100 high level “combat” players bullying one single high level “sculptor” player.

    There’s clearly a problem of fact’s interpretation here.

      important part is Weed had fun… and found a new challenge, after having almost finished his sculptor path.
      now he can walk the swordman/king path… with the aim of winning over Bard Ray. He already learned all he add to know about Bard Ray.
      And even Bard Ray himself realized that he was lucky to meet Weed so early.
      Now, he made a logical mistake by believing he really had crushed Weed. The Ace battle is just starting.😉


    2. Biero

      I wonder if that window Bard Ray missed in the middle of the battle was his honor falling? Perhaps something about the battle between two kings? If there is something like Bard Ray owns Morata now I will rage.

      It’s certain a lot of people will resent him for killing Weed. If people knew that Bard Ray is a Pay-to-win player and Weed is much lower leveled than they think, I wonder how impressed the spectators would become.


    3. jigglypuxx

      you’re also quite blind. yes bardray had support of the guild but weed had the help of the boss moster and summons.
      Still it was a hypocritical fight for bardray saying they will have a 1 on 1 did not asked for help from offensive guild mates but receive buffs and specially heals even in the middle of the fight.
      They even had debuff placed on weed at the critical moment.
      But bardray said it himself on the novel that he will run away with the win no matter what. And will not confront him again, having the “honor of being the strongest”.


  6. Demize

    Well i really hate how this chapters end in such anti climatic way….and really dat bardgay and his Guild vs. Weed sounds like a legit 1v1 rite?….lame lolz…


    1. Aizen

      LOL this happens alot in the MMO i play (Age of Wulin), P2W players say lets 1V1 and then they get help from their guild when shit doesnt go their way. i always find those non-P2W amazing when they kick P2W asses #Money cant buy skill. #Trash with money is still Trash.


  7. Shinintendo

    If it were me I would’ve asked KMC Media to release to video of the fight to let everyone see what a coward Bardray is. not only he is buffed and healed he has to use the magicians to stop weed. he’s all talk and putting on airs.


    1. wat

      Actually, that was broadcasted, the response was that people deemed it a cowardly victory. Feel free to re-read that part up there.


      1. Shinintendo

        Right. I missed the “Bardray’s victory was also discussed on Royal Road’s various bulletin boards”

    whoa whoa whoa wtf weed died right… what about his ability to turn into a skeleton solider after he dies? Oo?? Well id hate to be in the hermes guild now…


    1. jigglypuxx

      Please re-read.
      2 of his backup hp(from the seo-yoon) and the ability to revive as undead did not activate.
      1. The ring did not activate because he got 1 hit ko-ed before it activated(50% below)(kinda like when abaddon from dota gets killed before his SS activates.
      2. The revive did not activate because of the skills low lvl. being countered by holy magic.

    Thank you for more this chap!!!!

    “The fact that Lee Hyun was famous in his neighbourhood was new to Seo-yoon. She was worried that he might’ve done something wrong or committed extortion.”

    this part alread had made crying with laughter like crazy but then my heartstrings was pulled with surprise when that grandma told Lee Hyun’s story just to die laughing in the end… one of the best chapter from LMS!!!


  10. Oo

    This guy… didn’t even face him in a fair one in one. If he want getting support from his entire guild, weed may have had a shot.


  11. Oo

    This old grandma… How dare she spread lies about him? Weed paying for somebody else’s hospital bill!?!? Helping people for free? Giving free food to the neighborhood!? Such blatant lies. This granny sure is an evil woman.

      Weed actually does help people he deem worthy. I can see why he would have sympathy for the eldery, as it would remind him about his grandma. The food given was about to expire, so he shared that. The kids would remind himself about his past and thus would be a motivation to help them live a better life. Numerous accounts of him dispising careless spending has been shown throughout. Besides, helping these people would make them feel indebted, which he could utilize later. For example, carrying bags home from the elderly could result in getting food for a cheaper sum because they deem him a friend.

    Thanks, Turtle for the 2 speedy chapters!

    I hope Seoyoon is angry at Dumpray instead of Weed…angry at the state his cowardly killing allowed Weed to wallow in regret. Man, Weed’s revenge better come in tens or I won’t be satisfied. Pull down DumpRay’s pants on national tv or something! Anything! Oh, and make sure to steal that sapphire for your quest from him. I wonder how no one’s mentioned the obvious skill drop that’s bound to happen next chapter…I just hope it isn’t below Advanced lvl 8…sigh.


    1. wat

      She was furious because she was worried. She will calm down and the overall effect of her opening up more will be positive. Weed already mined a considerable amount of huge sapphires in the cave. As soon as he revives, he’ll make a sculpture, turn it in and continue/finish the master quest.


  14. Peace

    Well, seems to be the end of the Weed vs Bardray – Melbourne Mines arc. To conclude:
    1) Weed found and recognized Bardray as a rival
    2) Weed did succeed in his quest to collect the finest sapphires from the mines, now is making a sapphire sculpture to complete the sculptural life form quest
    3) Looking forward to Weed retaliating with the help of all the races he met when completing his sculptor master quest. Imagine all sculptors made by Emperor Arpen under Weed’s command
    4) Hermes guild just pissed off everyone in the continent. Looking forward to the residents of Morata getting angry their mighty Weed is killed
    5) Weed might form a regular party and train up since his regular party members got wiped when arriving late at the mines

    -I honestly can’t wait to see the anger from the morata citizens for killing their king! I mean the grass porridge cult is almost a million in members!
    -how dare people say they were disappointed in weed?! It wasn’t even a fair fight! If they looked at the factors pertaining his death, you would see that weed had struggled bravely despite it all!
    -I can’t wait to read about weeds revenge! Bwahah. Bardgays gonna get it this time! No way would weed succumb! You just infuriated the number one person you shouldn’t mess with!

    Ughhh now I want more chapters!!! This is getting too exciting to handle! Waaaaaaa.

      “Many people talked about Bardray’s use of various blessings and fighting against the tired Weed, calling it a cowardly victory. ”

      It appears that part went over your head. ;D


      1. Tanya Lluch

        I read that part but still I was upset about the line where people from KMS media were disappointed in him! Agghhh I cannot! Huhu so much feels for today xD

    Bardray’s win reminds me of a game I use to play. You would pvp vs. someone and they would bring several support characters just to kill you then act like they are superior. It’s like okay you and your PARTY did well against one person GJ!

    thank you very much awesome Turtle, very sad chapter, Weed will get back on his feet and show them…
    Bardray is intentionally portrayed as an invincible character, but it is unfair and doesn’t make sense… but in order Weed to get more glory in the future, I will have to let go of this illogical setup..

    1.- There’re no more things that I can excpect from Bardray. He’s just a bully and he know that. It’s just mater of time when weed recive their rightfull revenge and humiliate that bully.
    2.- Also, about weeds armor. Considering the materials he recived from the dwarfs and their relationship with the best blacksmiths in the continent. He will recive their suport and with the help of the “forge of Hestia” they will make the best armor the continet ever saw. I hope that.
    3.- I also hope that the talk with the lady open the eyes to Seoyeon and accept their felings to Weed. Because it’s soo obious that they are going to be together.
    4.- If they became a couple I hope that in the last fight between Weed and Bardray, Seoyeon said something like “Look at me, I’m their girlfriend and I love him. You will never have someone like me or even a girl in your life because you are just a piece of shit coward” and the she kiss Weed and Bardray desapear in a grey light to never been see again.

    Thanks for the chapter!!❤

    And reading the comments made me enjoy the chapter even more.. ^_^

    This made me think of things like, even tho Bard Ray killed Weed, and seeing what Weed wore (the armor drop) when facing him. He wasn't able to kill Weed fast, with his superior equips and with the support of the Royal Guard, it will probably make Bard Ray doubt that, did he really defeat Weed?


    1. Phil1403

      Sure, he can doubt…
      Fact is he did NOT understand how Weed characters works. In fact, he believe he crushed Weed, where in fact, he just switched on a time bomb.
      My bet is Weed will start to harass Hermes guild, from behind the scene…


    1. EXTER

      Lol bardgay may have won the battle with weed vs hemes guild but he is going to lose the war when weed uses all of his connections with the users and npc’s alike.

    sorry for my bad english but I think I have to write this, in chapter 27.7 why the author said that the Moonlight sculpting blade was weak,but this skill can ignore the opponent’s defend and deal direct damage penetrate armors, and you all knew that a black knight with full legendary armors set has very high defend, help reduce the damage. So why Weed didn’t use this skill, you saw how much damage weed deal: 149 and 617(or am I wrong, it it was the damage Weed receive? :v ), if he used that skill the damage.. I can’t imagine but at lest I think it’s better. Or maybe the author lost his mind?


  21. ballerzie

    This is getting interesting..
    I believe weed left the tallock armor on purpose so gaybard thought he was dead.. while he revived as an undead.. xD


  22. fiezz

    I dont know why, but in lms i like story about development of morata. Well the fight story is good, but i prefer story of morata more..
    Hahha maybe just me
    I bet no confrontation between bad gay and weed until weed finish his sculpting mastery. And i think they will fight again in war between hermes and arpen

    Before weed thinks how to defeat Badray..
    He better survive the onslaught of his angry waifu!!

    So many comments and didn’t read through them all. Thanks for the translation!

    So….to the author….like wtf is “I’ll fight you one on one”. Weed was always going to lose since Bard Ray was like “I’m gonna give you a chance to one-shot me before I kill you, but even if you kill me, you’re gonna die anyways unless you can instant teleport”. Since when do the healers heal and ranged dps cover fire in a 1v1 hoedown…. (A bit awkward but you get what I mean….I hope..)


  25. ghostwalkerx

    “He won! Bardray-nim is the strongest in the continent!” this comment made by Herme guild members displays the greatest level of stupidity. out of the 160 members i wonder how many were priests and magicians? Not only was it an unfair battle Bardray struggled with Weed despite all of Bardray advantages. Herme guild is full of clowns.


  26. bbust

    as i realize that it was only a game, i didnt care much after. kinda felt sad. but i hope bardray stops there, i hope he realized that it took him lots of supportive heal, 1 invincible spell, lots of crowd control to finish off just 1 target.


  27. r1c4rdo97

    He even needed to Weeds, restrict movement… oh well the latter part of the chapter was really good at least we got some Seoyoon time, i was missing her.


  28. ultenth

    The reasoning as to why the ring and power to reject death didn’t work was flimsy at best and really lame. Very disappointed in the author.


    1. SubZole

      Weed already died once (when he was a death knight serving Balkhan) when similarly he could resurrect because he received too much holy damage. I see nothing wrong with it.


  29. SubZole

    I think its okay that Weed lost this time. At least now he found a real rival and motivation. Bardray thought that he won over him with only this but he only managed to spark up the motivation of Weed and all who are close to him or like/respect him.
    Imagine all the geomchis after they level up and complete their mastery quests. Weed will has his own royal guards too😀

    Also the way he lost is also important. Bardray had lots of help from the guild and was in advantage. We don’t know who would have won in a honest 1v1 duel since Bardray still had lvl, equipment and skill advantage.
    In the end Weed died, but managed to deal a lot more damage to the Hermes guild.🙂

    Thanks for the chapters!

    it’s amazing how they consider a 200v1 a victory when the one person took out about 10-20 people

    thanks for the chapter
