You have been transported in 'Azmarin beginner's ;
The didn't even last 10 He looked around and saw countless people, like literally endless people of races and appearances.
He couldn't even properly move, they were shouting and yelling here and there, some asking for help. Leiu couldn't believe what's happening right now.
"Searching for a party for the beginning quest!"
"Looking for an 'experienced' !"
"Looking for a beta tester! We'll pay real life money, please contact us!"
As Leiu heard that, he clicked his tongue and thought,
'Tsk tsk! Experienced my fucking ass! The game just opened, how would you find an experienced person! Truly !'
Leiu tried his best to squeeze in between the crowd of people and go find some quests.
Naturally, most of the people knew that quests have a '!' symbol on top of the NPC. He didn't know much apart from that, but he already managed to spot 4 symbols like that not too far away from him.
As for the beginner's , he couldn't even it, there were just too many people to even see the gate leading outside. Which was really a shame, he knew there were a lot of beginner , yet despite that, the number of people here was really insane.
Thoughts of logging off and returning later at night to him but he soon shrugged that idea off as he had to work tomorrow at 10:00 AM.
Yes, he quitted most of his part-time jobs as he had enough money for himself and his sister for quite a while. But that didn't mean he had to jobless, he kept the best part-time job he had, the pay wasn't bad and it was only 6 hours a day. Furthermore, the starting time was not too late nor too early, so it suited his requirements.
It took Leiu roughly an hour to arrive next to a NPC 80 meters away from his starting It seemed hard to believe but unfortunately, it was the truth, the swarm of people began to lessen a bit as most of them directly went outside to level. But Leiu didn't.
He had a habit of taking all the quests, then go and clear them at the same time. Then he would return and receive the rewards, he had always done this in the past and it proved to be a very effective method.
Actually, only newbies or would directly head outside, gamers weren't that reckless, indeed first one had to buy an armor or a weapon. Leiu noticed that he didn't have any weapon equipped, so there must be a way to get a weapon.
Going bare handed would only lead to his death, he wasn't even sure which to pick yet, it was a bit fortunate that were unlocked at LVL 10. So it was early to think about that, but i didn't mean he had to completely ignore that. Some of the he stumbled upon stated that were not chosen by , but by the system.
For example, if you picked a shield, a one-handed sword and you with that until LVL10, then you would automatically be Of course there were variables which could change the or even allow you to obtain rare and unique –such as , berserker and so on–but it was not easy to get on of these.
Another example was taking a staff or a wand, although you couldn't have any skills if you attacked with that, you would either get a healer or a mage A staff for healers and a wand for mages.
Leiu didn't completely believe this, but he had a hunch that this was true. Moreover, since he began MMORPG games he always chose a dps But not any dps , one that would be good at tanking and soloing yet at the same time could deal bursts of damage. He always enjoyed being alone and soloing everything, so such suited him best.
He also managed to open his status window. Apparently, each person would have unique stats, though the difference was meager and most of the people would have beginning stats.

Leiu arrived in front of the NPC who looked like an old man. He held a wooden stick in his right hand and his back was a bit hunchback. When Leiu was a couple of meters away from the old man, the latter turned his gaze toward the haired youth coming toward him and said that his stats looked pathetic. But that's how it was for all people so he didn't mind it that much. As for his name in the game, he named himself 'Leyu', yet different from his original name. He didn't have good naming sense thus just went with that name.
"Ah ah! If it's isn't the young hero, I see there are a lot of you here, hahaha..."
Leiu was not a fan of talking, he heard that 'dumb' people had a special added to their headset allowing them to interact with NPC without talking. He wasn't one of them, however, so he couldn't escape talking...
"Hello.. I'm Leyu, do you have anything I could help you with?"
Unlike what Leiu thought, the NPCs looked very realistic and didn't talk like robots, they spoke and behaved like normal people. He didn't have the to see a lot of them yet, only a dozen or so, but every single one of them acted differently and had a different personality.
"Ha ha ha, I see that the new heroes are very kind and enthusiastic. Indeed there is something that I need some help with. If you don't mind, could you get rid of the Bees causing trouble right outside of the Several children were hurt because of them."
Hearing that, a blue window popped up in front of Leiu, showing him the quest.
Quest : Get rid of the bees outside of the , 0/5 Savage Bees
Difficulty : F
Would you like to the quest? Y/N
Just as he the quest, the old man smiled at him and spoke yet again.
"Oh my! Thank you, thank you! I expect great things from a young hero like you, if you get rid of the Bees, then I'll give you good rewards, don't worry!"
Leiu didn't speak more and headed directly toward the next NPC to get the remaining quests. Although the amount of people had lessened, moving around was still annoying and took a lot of time. Still, Leiu managed to get all the quests after 2 and a half hours of intense struggle.
Get rid of the Savage Bees 0/5
Help the get Savage Rabit fur : 0/6 Savage rabit fur
Gather Sun Snowberries for 'Jessica' : 0/4 Sun Slowberries
Completely destroy the home of the Savage bees : 0/1
There were 4 quests in total and they didn't seem really hard. The last one had an 'E' difficulty though, but for Leiu it seemed easy too. Well, he might change his mind later after experiencing real fighting.
Oh, and by the way, the amount of pain felt when fighting was lessened by a huge amount. You would only feel 20% of the pain, it's not a lot, but it's not little either. You could buy a more expensive headset that allowed you to feel 0% pain but that was very veeery expensive. How could someone like Leiu afford it?
'It's fine as long as I don't get hit!' or so Leiu thought. He never really fought in real life, but he had a hunch that he would not screw up too much and be able to cope with the game quite easily.
He also bought a weapon. While checking his inventory he noticed it was totally empty, yet at the left corner, there was a spot which indicated the amount of money he had. Of course he didn't have a lot, every beginner was given only 50 coppers. It wasn't a lot, but it was enough for him to buy a weapon and 1 Red
Lesser Red : 5 Health
One-handed bronze sword : +1 Strength
He wasn't sure which to pick but it would definitely not be a healer or mage Although they were very good, especially the mage who were always known to be the highest damage dealers in every game, he never really liked either of those. He personally liked melee , because they had a much better tanking efficiency and also because their damage was not that low compared to mages
Leiu bought the most basic weapon , which was a sword because it was the easiest to wield. There were also spears, axes and maces, but he knew he couldn't handle those, so he picked that sword. Maybe he would choose , or maybe something else. Only his performances would decide.
Finally, it was the time to check the outside and experience real fighting. It would be a lie to say he wasn't excited, in fact his eyes were burning with excitement and eagerness. If it had not been that crowded he would have run outside with all his might.
Fortunately, it didn't take him a lot of time to squeeze out of the crowd and get out. The outside was much much broader than the Without the presence of lots of people, moving became much easier, the problem now was... finding monsters to kill. Everywhere you looked, there were people killing savage deers, rabbits and so on...
Without joining a party, he wouldn't be able to find a peaceful to hunt. But for Leiu it was impossible to get in a party with strangers. It's not like MMORPG, where everything was virtual. Right now, cunning people would show up and use their tricks to scam newbies and
With that thought in mind, he headed deeper into the beginner's forest, hoping to find Bees and Rabbits so he could finish the quests.
