It was a pretty big change, so it wasn’t hard to notice even if Choi Yu-Seong didn’t pay close attention.
Then, in a blink of an eye, part of the space distorted and spread out wide as if it were vomiting.

The first thing that popped out from the mysterious phenomenon was a sand statue in the shape of a human.
It was about 2m tall with red gem-like eyes, and it was holding a spear and a thick shield made of sand.
It moved its head in a rather awkward motion and looked at Yu-Seong.
Then, it opened its rather small mouth, crumbling rocks and causing dust to fly around.


 Soon, it roared, which caused the ground to tremble.

With glowing eyes, Yu-Seong used Wind Control Execution to quickly widen his distance.
It was a sudden, mysterious phenomenon.
Moreover, a strange monster had appeared in a hunting ground filled with only Tusk Mouls.
To him, it was clear what this represented.

‘It’s the boss monster!’ 

The monster kicked off the sandy ground and rushed toward Yu-Seong.

The finest spear that was worth over 2 billion won and made by craftsmen, collided with the boss monster’s sand spear.


A thundering noise was heard.

Yu-Seong trembled from the impact that shook his eardrums.
He immediately wrapped Spark around his right foot and turned his waist to hit the boss monster’s head.

The boss monster—the sand officer—tried to lift the shield and attack Yu-Seong.
However, its head exploded and sand scattered everywhere.

Yu-Seong could feel the grainy texture of having sand sucked into the lung.
He wanted to cough but he did not even have time to do so.
He immediately used Wind Control Execution at once.

‘The First Step.’ 

The sand officer’s shield struck the spot where Yu-Seong was standing just a moment ago.
Soon after, some of the scattered sand returned to its original place and formed the sand officer’s head once more.

“Cough, cough.
Owww, my throat.”

Obviously, the sand officer showed no consideration to wait for Yu-Seong while he was coughing.
Without delay, its spear flew up from the ground and aimed at Yu-Seong’s head once again.

Yu-Seong fended off the attack by using Block, pushing his shield forward.
He used the subsequent momentum and turned his body slightly, then used Seize to shut down the shield that was coming from below.

Yu-Seong looked into the sand officer’s red eyes and used Wind Control Execution to move to the creature ’s back.
He stretched his spear forward and used Sting, piercing through the sand officer’s chest and reaching near its heart.
However, the sand officer continued glaring at Yu-Seong with red eyes.

‘So, it won’t die even if I smash the head or stab the heart.’ 

This made sense since the creature was made of sand.

Fortunately, this time, Yu-Seong did not have to eat sand since he was quite far away.
He then calmly wielded his spear while distancing himself from the attacking sand officer.
As soon as he saw the chance, he fired Spark to stop the sand officer’s movement and even cut off all of its four limbs.

Yu-Seong’s eyes glistened when he found a fist-sized stone wrapped in red light in the gaps of the sand officer’s body.

‘That is…?’ 

In the original novel, there was no scene of hunting the sand officers.
Therefore, Yu-Seong had to think about how to kill the monster since he didn’t have any information.
And the moment he saw the red stone, he had a strong intuition from being a maniac of games and genre novels for a long time.

‘That’s definitely the Core!’ 

In general, the only weakness for monsters of that kind was the Core.
Yu-Seong immediately came to the conclusion that he could defeat the monster by breaking the red stone.
Even if all the other parts could be regenerated, the core would not be restored.
He tried to quickly stab with his spear once again.

However, when the limbless sand officer screamed, a sudden gust of sand blew forth and blocked Yu-Seong’s view.
It pushed him away, stopping him from ending the fight.

Yu-Seong stepped back and calmly moved on, but his heart was racing.

‘It’s okay.
I still have time.’ 

He was doing okay.
He was fighting well against the boss monster of a rank two dungeon alone.
A rank two dungeon was generally hunted by a five-member E-rank party above level fifty, and with his performance, Yu-Seong was pleased.
He couldn’t help but smile.

Originally, Choi Yu-Seong was an ordinary man, an employee of a game company.
There had been various changes after he was possessed by the novel, but to be honest, he never thought that he was particularly outstanding.
Simply, he thought that he had achieved such results from possessing prior information and had unique spite and tenacity.
However, his feelings had now changed.

Yu-Seong moved naturally, being guided by the flow of the air and the spear tip quivered.
As he immersed himself in that feeling, he pushed back the attacks of the fully regenerated sand officer and swung his spear down to cut off one of its legs.
Then, he pulled his spear upward and thrust it forward to pierce even the sand officer’s shield.

‘Something’s changed,’ Yu-Seong thought.

Now he was not Yu-Seong, the ordinary game company employee.
However, he was also not a villain belonging to a chaebol[1] family in the novel.

‘It’s like…’ 

Yu-Seong felt like he was similar to Kim Do-Jin, the main character of the novel he read.
Sweat drenched his hair and ran down all over his body, but he didn’t feel heavy.
All he felt was a sense of thrill.


After Yu-Ri found out that the dungeon’s boss monster had appeared from within the distorting space, she immediately kicked the ground.
She thought that she had to save Yu-Seong.
Although only a short time had passed, a boss monster could pose a much greater threat to him.

‘I knew I should’ve been closer to him.’ 

She regretted it for a moment.
She felt her heart beating loudly as she approached the battlefield.
Everything came into view.

‘Yu-Seong oppa is…’ 

Yu-Seong was fighting alone in an equal, no, advantageous battle against the sand officer.
He dealt with the emergency situation by avoiding and widening the distance between the sand officer and himself, using the acceleration skill which Yu-Ri was seeing for the first time.
Spark was used to block the opponent’s movements or to land a powerful blow that led to fatal opportunities.

But Yu-Ri was most surprised by Yu-Seong’s Spearmanship, which flowed through space like water.
It was sharp and untamed, dangerous.
The spear tore, crossed, and penetrated through space.

When the boss monster was blown off by a direct hit and the sand dust scattered away, his sweat drops sprinkled through them and stained the surroundings.

Yu-Ri could not help but open her mouth and express admiration at the battle’s rather surprising outcome.
It felt as if she were looking at a piece of art.

The abnormality of the player’s world—Irregular—was known as someone who would grow stronger as long as they survived.
Today, once again, Yu-Ri was reminded of the fact that Yu-Seong was Irregular.
However, she thought that was not the end.

‘It’s not something that’s possible just because he is lucky.’

Yu-Seong being an Irregular was not the only reason for his strength.
The Spearmanship that he was currently using to balance the battle contained only basic skills—Blocking, Seizing, and Piercing.

Pushing away, swirling in, and stabbing… Yu-Seong had practiced the three basic skills of Spearmanship day and night without skipping a single day.
Despite the infinite repetition of the same movements, he never even seemed to be tired of it.

Of course, it was not that the Jin siblings did not ask Yu-Seong if he would want to learn more advanced Spearmanship.
Their intention was that it would be nice if he could get a strong spear skill, but since it was literally the realm of luck to hope to learn a strong skill, they wanted him to develop his martial arts in any way possible.
Even if they had to hire an expert, they would do it.

However, Choi Yu-Seong had rejected their request.
This was because he thought he was not good enough in martial arts yet.
Many people—including the Jin siblings—said he had quite the talent, but he had told them that he didn’t want to forget that he was still at the starting point.

Evidently, the result of that was seen in the battle against the boss monster—sand officer.
Yu-Seong’s Spearmanship was beautiful even though it wasn’t fancy or special.
It was authentic.

Yu-Ri admitted that Yu-Seong had made the right choice.

‘Just because it’s basic doesn’t mean it’s weak.’

If someone could use it as well as that, a basic skill would be better than any other skill.

For a moment, Yu-Ri simply observed the battle as if she was lost in thought.
She created a whip in one hand, just in case, and took out the action camera that she had brought with the other hand.

‘I have to shoot this for sure!’ 

Yu-Seong’s battle was too beautiful for her to enjoy alone.


After falling into a bit of a trance from repeatedly stabbing, cutting, and breaking the sand officer with Spearmanship, Yu-Seong was able to try to identify the location of the sand officer’s core several times.
The problem was the sandstorm that erupted with the sand officer’s scream whenever he made an attempt.
Because the sandstorm was too tough and powerful, it was hard to even think of breaking through it and destroying the core.
Eventually, he needed to effectively pierce the core after confirming its location.

‘So far, I have used all five steps of Wind Control Execution.’

Yu-Seong did not know exactly how much mana he had remaining, but he estimated that he had about one-third left.
Since the Wind Control Execution was powerful, the mana consumption with each usage was quite high.

‘Perhaps there are two times left before I reach the limit, considering the remaining mana.’ 

Yu-Seong needed to seize the opportunity this time.
He avoided the sand officer’s attack based on his acute sense, and not sight, and immediately used Wind Control Execution.
Afterward, he immediately threw the Hail Mary.

‘Create illusion.’ 

An illusion could be created by activating Wind Control Execution and using all currently available five steps.
When he activated the skill, a strange feeling came to Yu-Seong as if his body was splitting into two.

The sand officer, crazily chasing after Yu-Seong, stabbed its spear to the illusion’s head.
A mere irrational monster, the sand officer tilted its head as if it intuitively sensed something strange.

At that moment, Choi Yu-Seong’s spear, which was wrapped in Spark, popped out from under the illusion that dispersed like smoke rising in the air.
Yu-Seong thrust the spear right into the crotch of the sand officer.
He was convinced this was the right place.

Along with the noisy ‘jjouk-!’ sound, the sand officer’s red eyes turned to the tip of Yu-Seong’s spear.
It opened its mouth to scream, but there was no shriek or sandstorm like before.
Its physical form returned to its original appearance and was blown away by the wind.
Like real sand, it disintegrated and spread throughout the desert.

Hunting was a success.

“I did it-!” Yu-Seong felt relaxed, feeling relieved.
He was about to sit down.

Your level has risen.

Your level has risen.

Your level has risen.

Your level has risen.

Your level has risen…

The level-up notifications that he exceedingly loved were heard constantly.
Yu-Seong couldn’t bring himself to count them all.
The fastest way was to directly check the system information window and see how much his level had risen.
