I Have A Monster Rearing System - Chapter 5
Chapter 5: Dale Forest, Hunting Demonic Beasts!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
In the tavern.
After Jobs and Tazik’s group reached an agreement, he joined the demon hunting team.
After entering the demon hunting team and having a conversation with them, Jobs gained an understanding of the other two members.
Beirut, a Rank Two Swordsman whose information was obtained through Information Sharing, was usually quite a loud person, but he was also the kind of person who could be trusted and not be a burden at crucial moments.
As for the other female Rank One Mage, her name was Sunny. Because she was not strong enough, she had only joined the demon hunting team created by Tazik a week ago.
It was very important to have a long-range mage in the team.
After the four of them finished their discussion in the tavern, they confirmed that the hunting location for this trip was the demonic beast forest next to Laner Town: Dale Forest.
There were a lot of low-level demonic beasts there, which was very suitable for them.
The classification of demonic beasts was different from humans.
Low-level demonic beasts were equivalent to human swordsmen and mages from rank one to three in terms of strength. Mid-level demonic beasts were equivalent to rank four to six humans. Similarly, high-level demonic beasts had the strength of rank seven to nine human experts.
Looking at the demon hunting team that Jobs was in, the strongest person, Tazik, had the strength of a Rank Three Swordsman. In battle, there was also the Rank Two Swordsman Beirut to cover them, and Sunny was responsible for releasing fireballs to attack from afar.
With such a lineup, coupled with his Information Sharing ability, they could definitely kill the demonic beasts in Dale Forest with the highest efficiency, meaning that he could accumulate monster points!
Due to the fact that he had been living here and was familiar with the surrounding terrain, Jobs quickly led the demon hunting team towards their destination.
The team set off from the tavern at noon. After they walked out of Laner Town, they traveled for four hours before the sight of a forest appeared in front of them.
By the time they reached Dale Forest, it was already evening. The already dark sky and the gloomy atmosphere of Dale Forest made it so dark that they could not see what was ahead.
Feeling the black gas floating in front of his face, Tazik’s expression changed slightly.
“Such strong demonic energy.”
After corruption, magical elements would degenerate into demonic energy which would mutate and contaminate the animals and plants nearby. These mutated demonic beasts and plants would start emitting demonic energy to nourish the surroundings, forming a stable cycle.
The demonic beast forest in front of them had definitely existed for a long time. There were a large number of demonic beasts living in it, which was why it could accumulate such dense demonic energy!
Although the demonic energy was dense, there was a hint of joy in the eyes of the members of the demon hunting team.
A large number of demonic beasts meant an abundant harvest.
Of course, they would not underestimate the hidden dangers in Dale Forest.
As soon as they entered the demonic beast forest, thick demonic energy blocked their vision. They could only see things within a 20-meter radius. If they wanted to see clearly, the range would be even smaller.
“I’ve never seen demonic energy of such density in a forest before. Everyone, be careful and stay vigilant. Pay attention to your surroundings and guard against any demonic beasts that may attack at any time!”
Tazik, who was walking in front of the group, spoke to everyone who were moving behind him.
Beirut and Sunny also became more serious as they gripped their weapons tightly.
They did not have the powerful strength of a rank three like Tazik. Their reaction speed and combat strength were far inferior to him as well. In this forest where danger grew like grass, they had to be even more careful!
Not long after, when the demon hunting team was 300 meters into the forest, the strong and intense smell of blood rushed towards them.
Jobs’ Information Sharing was active the entire time. In his vision, he saw a black leopard charging towards them.
[Monster: Shadow Leopard]
[Race: Demonic Beast]
[Level: Low-level Demonic Beast]
[Ability: Shadow Assault, Claw Slash]
[Weakness: Fear of fire-attribute magic, fragile neck and spine, has high explosive power but often loses mobility due to inertia.]
The moment he noticed the Shadow Leopard, Jobs immediately used Information Sharing to inform everyone of its details.
“The demonic beast is a Shadow Leopard, it is a low-level demonic beast!”
“It has the sneak-attack skill Shadow Assault and the close combat skill Claw Slash.”
“As for weakness, it has a fear of fire, weak points like the neck and spine, and poor maneuverability!”
Three messages appeared in everyone’s mind.
As the team leader, Tazik’s eyes lit up. Before the Shadow Leopard’s surprise attack, he was actually a little flustered because he did not know who the enemy was and what skills they had.
However, Jobs told him everything, even revealing its weaknesses!
This skill was too powerful!
“Sunny, use your fireballs to cover us. I’ll fight this Shadow Leopard head-on.”
“Beirut, keep an eye on this animal’s spine area, understood?”
Tazik roared and pulled out his iron sword, charging towards the Shadow Leopard!
Two fireballs shot out from behind him and instantly changed the direction of the Shadow Leopard’s attack. It was forced to fight with Tazik.
“Light Sword Slash!”
The blade of the sword clashed with the leopard’s claws. Even though the Shadow Leopard unleashed a flurry of claw strikes, it could not overwhelm Tazik immediately. Instead, Tazik’s iron sword glowed brightly, and the intense light caused the Shadow Leopard to momentarily lose its sight.
At this moment.
A figure flew over from the side, it was Beirut who slashed down with his iron sword.
The Shadow Leopard’s back was instantly wounded and torn open by the blade, and it fell heavily to the ground.
Although the Shadow Leopard was very fast, that came at a price of a weaker body. Just this attack had heavily injured it, and it basically had no strength to resist.
Seeing an opportunity, Jobs took out the dagger that he had prepared earlier and stabbed the wounded Shadow Leopard in the neck!
[Ding, you have killed a Shadow Leopard and received 100 Monster Points!]
The system notification sounded.
100 monster points were equivalent to 10 wild boars!
Jobs’ eyes shook slightly. After a brief moment of surprise, he felt intense joy.
Killing demonic beasts gave him monster points with greater efficiency than killing ladybugs or earthworms.
After experiencing the pleasure of killing demonic beasts, right now, Jobs only wanted to kill more demonic beasts in this forest and accumulate more monster points!
At the same time, after killing a Shadow Leopard, the other members of the demon hunting team exclaimed in admiration.
“Oh goodness, Jobs, your ability is too useful. It seems my demon hunting team has really picked up a treasure this time!” Tazik patted Jobs on the shoulder and praised him sincerely.
He was telling the truth. Without the information that Jobs had provided in time, it would take a long time to find the Shadow Leopard and determine its species.
It was impossible to think of a battle strategy so quickly, and even kill this Shadow Leopard in front of them within three minutes.
After feeling the benefits of Jobs’ ability for the first time, Tazik looked at Jobs with a brighter gaze.
“Indeed, compared to knowing nothing about the demonic beast, knowing everything about it during a battle is too helpful!”
“Previously, when I attacked demonic beasts, I was hesitant about where to start. Now, I can directly lock onto the fatal spot of the demonic beast and kill it with one strike!”
Beirut was also excited. Before this, he had never killed a demonic beast with his own hands, let alone one with his sword.
After receiving the message from Jobs, he had received a huge boost of confidence.
“With Jobs’ help, we should be able to quickly return to town today.”
Even Sunny, who was holding a magic staff, smiled slightly. If not for the information of the demonic beasts that Jobs provided, they would probably still be fighting the Shadow Leopard now.
This increased their efficiency by several times.
“Alright! Let’s hurry up and aim to return to the town before dawn!” Tazik spoke excitedly.
After all, Jobs did not need fur or crystal cores. He only wanted to land the last attack on the monster. He was happy to speed up the hunting process and return to the town as soon as possible as well.
After all, in the wilderness, every additional sum of resources one carried meant more danger. They were not the only demon hunting team that came to the demonic beast forest every day. It would not be good if they were targeted by others who had some evil thoughts.
Immediately, Tazik led the demon hunting team deeper into Dale Forest to hunt for demonic beasts.
After that, whenever Jobs and the others encountered a demonic beast, he would immediately send a message to them regarding the demonic beast. After Tazik and the other two heavily injured it, Jobs would then kill it with one slash.
Under the powerful ability of Information Sharing, no demonic beast could hide. Even the demonic plants that were best at concealment were immediately discovered and killed by Jobs.
Along the way, everyone’s efficiency of hunting demonic beasts had increased by twofold. Jobs’ monster points were also rapidly increasing.
[You have successfully killed a Shadow Leopard. You have received 100 Monster Points.]
[You have successfully killed a Shadow Demon Wolf. You have received 200 Monster Points.]
[You have successfully killed a Blood Vine. You have received 150 Monster Points.]
Finally, late at night, they arrived at the depths of Dale Forest and started a bonfire to prepare for rest.
Tazik and the others were excitedly arranging the demonic beast fur and crystal cores they had obtained along the way.
Jobs, on the other hand, was at a corner. His eyes shone as he opened up the system interface.
After a day of hunting, he had accumulated 62,000 monster points!
He could finally enhance Little Yellow again!
With a hint of excitement, Jobs clicked on Little Yellow’s enhancement panel.
[Ding, would you like to spend 2,000 Monster Points to enhance the pet, Wasp?]
[Would you like to spend 4,000 Monster Points…]
[Would you like to spend 8,000 Monster Points…]
Having the previous experience, Jobs quickly raised Little Yellow to level 10!
The system’s notification sounded again.
[Ding! Your pet Wasp has unlocked a new Talent Skill!]
