Chapter 330

Hyeonu’s words echoed through the noisy workshop, and it fell quiet for a moment. In particular, the faces of those who were surrounding and screaming at Hyeonu turned pale. They finally realized who they were screaming at. However, Hyeonu, the person of focus, didn’t care. He was busy watching the chat window.

-Look at the content hunter that is faster than anyone else.

-He is almost an A-World hyena.

-His actions are much faster than others’.

-His speed at catching content seems to be number one.

“Why don’t I do this first? I’ll show you the probability in person,” Hyeonu said and pulled out something from his inventory.

It was the Mysterious Sky Sword. The first thing he wanted to strengthen was the weapon.

‘My gold is limited anyway. So my weapon takes precedence over armor.’

This was Hyeonu’s judgment after a day of worrying. In any case, his defense was already high enough. The important thing was his attack power. How hard could he hit? This was important.

“I’ve prepared a total of 20,000 gold today. I don’t know how much it will cost for one enhancement, but this should be enough to reach +10. Let’s aim for +10.”

Hyeonu’s goal was half of the maximum amount—half of +20. In fact, it was less than half as Hyeonu predicted it would be difficult to reach +10.

‘Based on my luck...’

In addition to his bad luck, he had a shortage of gold. As Hyeonu’s anxiety grew, some viewers continued to encourage him.

-No.

-It can’t be.

-If Alley Leader reaches +10 today, I will give 100 gold coins.

-Yes, 100 gold coins. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Despite that, there were also viewers predicting Hyeonu’s failure. No, they hoped for it—failure and then despair.

-Why do I feel so good when Alley Leader fails?

-I feel good when he is defeated.

-I like it the best when he is climbing mountains.

-Where is there a stream that makes viewers feel good when the streamer is failing? Haha.

In the midst of the audience’s bad words, Hyeonu gritted his teeth and focused his gaze on the capsule.

[Please add the item to enhance.]

A message appeared on the capsule, and Hyeonu placed the Mysterious Sky Sword into the capsule according to the message.

“Shall I see what price will come out? Let me find out.”

There was a loud song the moment the Mysterious Sky Sword was put in the capsule.

Bam bba bam bam bam! Bbara bam bam bam!

The moment the sound effects came out, the messages started to appear continuously.

[The type of item has been distinguished.]

[Weapon: single-edged sword]

[Measuring the item rating.]

[Rating: Epic]

[Measuring the enhancement figure.]

[Enhancement figure: +0]

[The cost for enhancement has been set.]

[Enhancement cost: 800 gold coins]


“Wah! This can’t be!” Hyeonu went on a rampage. He couldn’t stand it. It was too expensive.

“No! Why is it 800 gold?!” He yelled.

The people in the workshop were in chaos when they heard Hyeonu’s scream.

“800 gold coins? What item costs 800 gold to enhance once?”

“My sword is 3 gold?”

“How good is the item to be so expensive...?”

It was the gap from reality. The cost of enhancement for other players was 10 gold and 20 gold. The majority were like that, and only some were higher. Meanwhile, Hyeonu was hit with a bomb of 800 gold.

-ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 800 gold for one attempt ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

-Will he cry every time he fails?

-I will give 100 gold coins if he cries.

-Still, 800 gold coins is too much. Enhancement will lead to bankruptcy.

The viewers laughed when they saw the situation Hyeonu was facing. At the same time, they felt something was strange. The enhancement was truly too expensive.

“It is expensive, but I will do it because I am Alley Leader. I will challenge it straight away.”

-Let’s go!

-Can we see the +1 message?

-I’ll give 5 gold coins if it fails. Everyone, make a bet.

Hyeonu glanced at the chat window before pressing the capsule’s enhancement button.

[Add the gold.]

According to the message, Hyeonu placed 800 gold into the hold on the side of the capsule. The moment he finished inserting the gold, background music played from the capsule.

Kung! Kung kung! Kung!

Numbers appeared above the capsule, and below them was the image of a hammer hitting a sword.

0%... 10%... 50%... 100%.

[The enhancement has failed!]

[The enhancement figure has reduced.]

[The current enhancement figure is 0. The enhancement figure won’t decrease.]

“Kuaaah!” A scream erupted uncontrollably. The process happened so quickly that Hyeonu couldn’t control his scream. The enhancement was a failure, and 800 gold had disappeared without a trace.

“I will try again.”

[Add the gold.]

0%... 10%... 50%... 100%.

[The enhancement has failed!]

[The enhancement figure has reduced.]

[The current enhancement figure is 0. The enhancement figure won’t decrease.]

The same messages appeared. Once again, it was a failure. This meant two consecutive failures. 1,600 gold disappeared in an instant.

-ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I’ll give gold coins out of sympathy.

-Leader Big Fan has gifted you 18 gold coins.

-Alley Leader is the Best Best Best has gifted you 18 gold coins.

-Tang-E is the Best Best has gifted you 18 gold coins.

Gold coins were given to Hyeonu, but the number was insufficient compared to what he’d lost. “Suddenly, my motivation is gone... I’ll turn off the stream once all the 20,000 gold is lost today. I hope you’ll understand.”

-I will indulge it.

-It is understandable if 20,000 gold is lost.

-Instead, if you succeed in the +10 enhancement, you will have to show some hunting.

The audience took a step back. If they pushed him too much, he might run away right now. They need to push properly to watch the stream for a long time.

-He will run away if we push too much. Let’s do it in moderation.

-Yes. Everyone, control the chat level.

At this point, Hyeonu no longer looked at the chat window. He had put 800 gold coins in the capsule and was praying, ‘Please succeed! I should at least get +1!’

0%... 10%... 50%... 100%.

[The enhancement has succeeded!]

[The enhancement figure has increased.]

[The current enhancement figure is +1.]

[Check the item.]

Was it thanks to Hyeonu’s prayer? The enhancement was successful.

“Uwaaaaah!” Hyeonu’s shout filled the workshop.

He urgently checked the information of the Mysterious Sky Sword.

[+1 Mysterious Sky Sword]

[Edchan, the chief of the Red Anvil Tribe, has recreated the broken Mysterious Sky Sword.

The skill of a Golden Hammer has caused the restored broken Mysterious Sky Sword to boast a greater power than the original version.

The higher the achievements in the Mysterious Sky Demonic Art, the greater the power of the sword.

Rating: Epic

Durability: 6,300/6,300

Restrictions: One who has learned the Mysterious Sky Demonic Art.

Attack Power: 3,500 + 350

Effect: All stats +350, defense penetration is increased by 30%, magic power consumption is decreased by 30%, and magic power is increased by 30%.]

“Wow...” Hyeonu couldn’t say anything. It was a jackpot. His attack power was increased by 10% just from succeeding once in enhancement...

-Why? What is it?

-Let us see together.

-Shouldn’t you share good things?

-What is the use of you liking it alone?

It was natural that the viewers were curious.

Alley Leader wasn’t someone who would be pleased with ordinary things after all.

-How good is it that you are going crazy like a madman?

Hyeonu released the item information but not all of it. He just cut out the damage and released that; the rest were covered up.

[+1 Mysterious Sky Sword]

[Attack Power: 3,500 + 350]

“The attack power has increased by a huge 10%. If it keeps rising by 10%, it will increase by 100% once +10 is reached. It will be twice as much damage as before.”

Hyeonu’s words were an echo in a deep mountain that no one listened to.

-An attack power of 3,500...

-I need three copies of my sword to match the attack power of that one.

-Loooool ㅋㅋㅋ. Then do you want to hold one in both hands and one in your mouth?

-Hold two in one hand. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

They couldn’t keep their eyes off the Mysterious Sky Sword that boasted ridiculous attack power. It was absolutely terrifying. The secret to Alley Leader’s mighty damage seemed to have been revealed.

-3,500 is high. However, I hadn’t expected that attack power...

-Indeed... Stats aren’t as important as attack power. It is the same with skill.

-Of course, not all secrets were released. Only a small number was resolved.

-So when will you challenge +2? Are you going to quit after succeeding in +1?

-Quickly Quickly has gifted you 82 gold coins.

-Leader Big Fan has gifted you 18 gold coins.

-Tanking King Bear has gifted you 18 gold coins.

The viewers’ attention on the high attack power of the Mysterious Sky Sword quickly cooled, and their interest shifted back to Hyeonu’s gold coins disappearing.

“Yes, I’ll start straight away.”

Hyeonu once again put the Mysterious Sky Sword in the capsule. The music started again.

Bam bba bam bam bam! Bbara bam bam bam!

[The type of item has been distinguished.]

[Weapon: Single-edged sword]

[Measuring the item rating.]

[Rating: Epic]

[Measuring the enhancement figure.]

[Enhancement figure: +1]

[The cost for enhancement has been set.]

[Enhancement cost: 1,000 gold]

Hyeonu quietly tapped the capsule with his finger. It was a very bizarre sight. He had run wild when it was 800 gold just a few minutes ago. It didn’t seem normal for the person who did that to just stare quietly at the capsule.

‘Hah... Should I really kill...’

Hyeonu’s mind had already gone blank. His anger was so great that he didn’t know what to do. 200 gold—it increased by this much even though it was only one stage higher. It would go to +2 and then +3. What would the cost be for +8 and +9? He couldn’t even imagine it.

‘If it goes up by 200 gold every time, then it will cost 17,000 gold to reach +10.’

Considering that he already consumed 2,400 gold, it would be impossible to reach +10 if he failed one more time.

‘The problem is that this is the minimum estimated cost...’

If it increased by 300 or 400 gold, he wouldn’t be able to challenge even half of +10.

‘I still have to do it.’

Nevertheless, he couldn’t stop since it was the content he prepared. In any case, he had brought 20,000 gold to do this.

[Add the gold.]

Hyeonu tearfully added 1,000 gold to the capsule.

0%... 10%... 50%... 100%.

[The enhancement has succeeded!]

[The enhancement figure has increased.]

[The current enhancement figure is +2.]

[Check the item.]

“Eh?”

It was a success.

He had succeeded in reaching +2 at once.

“Uwaaaah!” A scream erupted.

Hyeonu felt extremely happy that another 1,000 gold didn’t just fly away. Using the momentum, he continued with the enhancement.

0%... 10%... 50%... 100%.

[The enhancement has succeeded!]

[The enhancement figure has increased.]

[The current enhancement figure is +3.]

[Check the item.]

0%... 10%... 50%... 100%.

[The enhancement has succeeded!]

[The enhancement figure has increased.]

[The current enhancement figure is +5.]

[Check the item.]

0%... 10%... 50%... 100%.

[The enhancement has succeeded!]

[The enhancement figure has increased.]

[The current enhancement figure is +9.]

[Check the item.]

Since then, he succeeded with seven enhancements in a row.

“Fortunately, the cost of enhancement only increased by 200 gold, so I was able to get here.”

The enhancement cost had increased by 200 gold per enhancement value as Hyeonu expected. Therefore, the cost of challenging +10 was a huge 2,600 gold.

“If it fails, I’ll end the stream today. I hope you can understand,” Hyeonu expressed his determination. No, it was an announcement. If the enhancement failed, today’s stream would be over. Hyeonu carefully placed the gold in the capsule. The sound was unusually loud.

0%... 10%... 50%... 100%.

[The enhancement has failed!]

[The enhancement figure has been reduced.]

[The enhancement figure will become 0.]

At the end of this message, Alley Leader’s stream turned dark.
