Volume 5, Chapter 3: "The Power of Alcohol"

Short Summary Edit

After being lost for weeks travelling around Rosenheim Kingdom, the Geomchis decide to make their way back to Serabourg after hearing that Weed is currently doing a quest there. The lower 500 practitioners decide to quickly join in upon seeing players working their butts off to get King Theodarren's crypt done for the B-Rank Quest.

During construction breaks, Pale, Surka, Romuna, and Irene use their free time to hunt and level-up using the Sphinx's Courage buff while Weed cooks meals for them and Maylon. Weed and company eventually decide to go out hunting together, and are met by master Geomchi, as well as Geomchi's 2, 3, 4 and 5, who wish to join them in order to see Weed in action for the first time in the game. Weed accepts, which Pale suggests that they should hunt at a Rosenheim gorge that is filled with powerful amazon huntresses.

Weed's party consisting of himself, Pale's group, Maylon, and Geomchis 1-5 arrive at the gorge of the huntresses. Before beginning the hunt, Weed takes the next moments using his skills to prepare the party for battle, which amazes Maylon since this is her first time seeing all of Weed's craft skills in action. Weed also provides the Geomchis alcohol he brewed, but they end up drinking too much, and pushes the alcohol upon the rest of the group; resulting in everyone but Weed ending up with the Drunk Debuff that keeps them wiped out for the time being. The huntresses finally decide to attack while everyone other than Weed is in a drunk state. 

Weed calls upon Van Hawk to help defend, and as it turns out, Van Hawk has remembered who he once was as a Knight of Kallamore Kingdom rather than just being Bar Khan Demoph's shackled Death Knight minion. As a result of fighting alongside Weed for quite some time now, the Summon Van Hawk item skill becomes a true skill for Weed to use rather than having it restricted to needing the Necklace of the Death Knight equipped. Weed and Van Hawk take on the huntresses by themselves fighting intensely to the point of the two of them running out of mana. As a result, Weed is forced to use last-second makeshift tactics, such as throwing spices at the enemy, just to keep staying alive. 

Meanwhile, the 5 Geomchis, Pale's group, and Maylon, are able to watch the fight unfold since their drunkenness has started to wear off. As it turned out, master Geomchi had planned with the other 4 instructor Geomchis to intentionally get everyone drunk so that they could witness Weed fight at the best of his capabilities, and confirm that Weed is indeed a monster with a lot of potential to grow. Afterwards, they all join in to fight alongside Weed against the huntresses.

The huntresses also gather in groups of 2 or 3, and don't attack their enemies until they enter the heart of the gorge.
  8. Weed uses his sword grind, armor polish, and ironing skills to prepare the party for battle against the huntresses. Maylon is surprised by this since this is her first time seeing all of Weed's craft skills in action.
  9. Maylon's weapon is known as the Two-Handed Bow of High Elf Venus, which Weed believes could go for 10,000,000 won in real-life.

  11. Weed cooks a steak meal for the party. It's said that this is the Geomchi's first real meal apart from constantly eating starter Barley Bread.
  12. Knowing that the Geomchis don't want just water, Weed pulls out bottles of alcohol that he had been brewing through experiments using different herb mixtures. The Geomchis, as well as Pale's group and Maylon, go about drinking the alcohol as if they're in a picnic. Drinking Weed's alcohol increases their Strength stat and max health temporarily. 
  13. Master Geomchi wants to try more of Weed's alcohol, which results in the latter pulled out Snake Wine, which is said to temporarily raise the Endurance stat. Buying the bottles is said to have cost 1 silver each while the snake for the drink was caught by Weed during hunts.

  20. The drunkenness wears off a tad from the rest of Weed's party as the top 5 Geomchis, Pale's group, and Maylon watch in amazement at the sight of Weed's battle against the huntresses. The Geomchis confirm that Weed is a monster fighter using the skills from the dojang while Pale's group remain envious that Weed can fight so exceptionally. Maylon is left even more amazed since she's seeing Weed perform skills that she, as a reporter, has never seen before.
  21. It's revealed that the 5 Geomchis got themselves intentionally drunk just to witness the best of Weed's fighting skills when he's put in the most intense situation possible. Master Geomchi is satisfied by the result.
