in real-life, as he had only seen them through videos.
Jiho wanted to look around curiously, but he pressed it down and carefully followed Tae Woong.
After walking on a windy path that was wide enough to fit three or four people, they reached a fork in the road.
Seon Tae Woong marked the first forked road and opened his mouth.
“It seems that this dungeon doesn’t have a lot of monsters.
If there were, we would’ve seen two or three of them already.”
That was a good sign.
Because there’s only two people, if there were a lot of monsters, it would have been disadvantageous.
The narrow tunnel was another advantage for the two.
After walking a little, Seon Tae Woong stopped.
Jiho, who stopped one step later, felt it after concentrating.
On the road to the right, there is a monster in hiding, waiting for the two to approach.
Instead of going towards it, Tae Woong quickly used his skill.
Although it was a simple command, the effect was strong.
The strong flames spread quickly as if oil had been spilled over the walls.
A monster that looked like a mouse staggered out of the tunnel, screaming as his body was covered by flames.
Seon Tae Woong used [Ignite] again on the burning monster that was running towards him as a last-ditch effort.
While Seon Tae Woong was using his skill on the burning monster, another monster jumped out from behind.
Although it was similar to the burning monster, its tail was shorter and its body was much leaner, moving faster than the other.
Tae Woong used [Ignite] again, but the monster was faster, avoiding the skill and running towards them.
Tae Woong clenched his teeth and prepared to get hit when…
With a heavy sound3, Jiho’s fist landed on the approaching monster.
Although it wasn’t fatal, the monster was pushed back a few meters.
That was enough for Tae Woong to make the final blow.
It was a little stronger than the first one.
The monster went up in flames at once, and it collapsed.
Soon, two monsters had been completely burned to a crisp.
Although it was good to sweep the monsters with one hit… if they used too much mana here, they will have a hard time later when it’s exhausted.
Jiho spoke up out of worry.
“Wouldn’t it be better if you saved your mana?”
The first hit was a test so I didn’t use a lot of power.”
Tae Woong looked down at his hands in shock as he answered.
“These monsters, they seem like they have no resistance to flames? No, it’s more than that.
It’s as though fire is their greatest weakness…”
Dungeons usually have a unique trait.
If two monsters weak to fire came out, there was a high probability that all of the monsters in this dungeon were weak to fire.
Seon Tae Woong’s skill attribute is fire.
A smile gradually appeared on Seon Tae Woong’s face.
“If we’re careful, it may work.”
Seon Tae Woong nodded.
With an advantageous attribute, it’s possible ignore one or two ranks and go up against them.
At that moment, their hopeless raid gained a spark of hope.
The dungeon raid went smoothly.
As the two had hoped, most of the monsters in this dungeon were either weak to flames or had no resistance at all to flames.
Because his attribute was advantageous, Tae Woong was usually the one to attack while Jiho kept guard to prevent monsters from sneaking up to Tae Woong.
Despite the fact that they usually fought whenever their eyes met, they worked shockingly well together.
Since their guilds were close to each other, they had watched each other closely.
They were worried that they would get lost, but the roads were, thankfully, comparatively simple.
Because they marked each fork and Jiho memorized the paths, they didn’t wander around.
As predicted, because the dungeon’s requirement was only two people, the dungeon wasn’t very big.
The two men easily reached the door to the boss monster in a quarter of a day.
Unlike the tunnels, which had retained a natural state, the door to the last room was completely smooth, as though someone had made it.
The tightly shut door looked like it wouldn’t open until someone from this side tried to open it.
‘Behind this, the dungeon boss…’
Even though he didn’t know what was behind the door, Jiho could still feel great danger surging up.
Despite the thick door in between them, a strong aura could be felt, causing goosebumps to appear.
The opponent inside will be many times stronger than those before.
Tae Woong lightly hit Jiho, who was nervously steeling himself, on the shoulder.
“Let’s rest here for a bit before going in.”
Jiho relaxed his stiff shoulders.
It was a good call.
No matter how many potions are used to replenish mana, they cannot get rid of physical exhaustion.
Jiho nodded without complaint.
“I will keep watch, so Hunter Seon Tae Woong-nim should rest.”
“It’s fine, if you’re tired, you should just sleep too.
You keeping watch and me sleeping will be able to perceive the same thing.”
Although they weren’t as sharp as before, his words were still annoying.
Tae Woong closed his eyes.
Surprisingly, he started snoring within 30 seconds.
After making sure that Tae Woong was asleep, Jiho took out a handkerchief.
Jiho covered his mouth with a handkerchief and quietly let out the cough he had been holding back for a while.
A familiar fishy taste went up his throat and the handkerchief was made with blood.
‘This cursed weak body.’
Although it was a familiar situation, he felt more annoyed than usual today.

1. Commands that are spoken out loud will be in bold.
2. This is how sounds made by monsters will look like.
3. The author specifically compares the sound to the sound of a 북 (“buk”) which is a traditional Korean percussion instrument.
It’s similar to a drum, as a hollow wooden barrel covered by a thin layer of hide.
Nowadays, they use faux leather.
