Chapter 206: Chapter 205: The Perfect Conclusion Part III
Lee Jiwon was collapsed on the ground with the Reaper standing over him. Baden looked on helplessly. Even though he was about to lose everything, Baden did not blame Lee Jiwon. Lee Jiwon had given his all; everyone knew it.
“Master Baden…” Umaru weakly called out to Baden, choked up. Abu Dhabi still had about two thousand soldiers left, while Astes had around twenty-eight hundred. Both armies could still fight, but all of the soldiers had laid down their weapons. They all knew this battle was over.
Suddenly, a figure appeared beside the Reaper and Lee Jiwon. It was a child of around five or six years of age. He had tied a mole to his hip with a piece of string. No one knew where this child came from, or who he was. He obviously wasn’t a deva or deity, and it had already been some time since the entrances to the Battlefield of Valor were sealed off. There was little chance he was some sort of Summoned creature, either.
Then, Lee Jiwon weakly raised his hand and pointed a finger at the child, who disappeared after a few moments. No one understood what was going on, but no one also gave it much thought. This was a battle between gods; it wasn’t their place to try and understand Lee Jiwon’s and the Reaper’s abilities.
I didn’t know why I pointed at Shaman Ko. My hand just moved on its own. But what was important was that it worked; I actually Consumed Shaman Ko.
==[You have consumed your target.
Target: Shaman Ko
Time applied: 24 hours
Effect 1: Increase Shaman Ko’s Stat Points two hundredfold.
Your currently invested 3,432 Shaman Ko Stat points will be increased by two hundredfold.
Effect 2: Increase all Stat points besides Shaman Ko’s Stat Points tenfold.
All invested Stat points besides Shaman Ko’s Stat Points increase by tenfold. (This only applies to base Stat points)
You may choose one of these two effects
Effect 1/Effect 2]==
Compared to the abilities I received from consuming the Dungeon Mole, these abilities were much simpler. Both effects involved Stat points. Shaman Ko really was the essence of Stat points. And neither effects had the three second duration that came with Shaman Ko’s Will.
“Select Effect 2!” I quickly selected the second effect. While the first effect would tremendously boost my STR and increase my attack power the same, I was one good hit away from dying. I needed the extra VIT to increase my HP. Increasing the rest of my Stats was also going to be a great help in surviving and getting more attacks in.

“…” I never knew a Stats Menu could have numbers that high. There was barely any space left to show all the digits of my HP, not to mention that my HP were restored to about 90% when I just had less than 1% left. I could feel the effects with my body. My Fatigue was all the way at 92 just a few moments ago, but now it was at 6. I was no longer panting heavily.
I slowly stood back up.
“There’s no need for you to get back up. I would have sent you off comfortably. Oh well. Have a nice trip.” The Reaper put on a wicked grin before continuing, “We probably won’t ever see each other again, not with those ten deity death penalties. Sweet dreams. Spear of Death!” He summoned another spear and threw it at me.
This was an attack I normally wouldn’t be able to defend against. Both of us knew that quite well. The Reaper seemed confident that this attack was going to kill me, and I watched the spear fly right at me. I didn’t try to block it or avoid it and let it strike me. I smiled as I watched my HP drop and burst out laughing. I laughed so hard that I was bent over, holding my belly.
The Reaper finally realized something was off. I could tell from his expression that he was slowly beginning to panic. “Have…you finally lost it? Multi Thorns of Death!”
Each thorn dealt considerable damage as they struck me. I was still under the effects of the Reaper’s debuffs, but the attacks didn’t stop me from laughing.
I slowly walked towards the shocked Reaper. The second I took my first step, I received a message.
==[Shaman Ko’s Will is being altered.
There is a 0.1% chance that the target of Predation will assume total control.]==
At that moment, my vision began to darken; as if I was beginning to black out.
Fayez was beginning to panic. After three hours of fighting, he knew that Lee Jiwon should have been close to dying. Lee Jiwon couldn’t defend against Fayez’s attacks properly, so Fayez attacked with everything he had. He fired two of his strongest attack skills at Lee Jiwon, but neither of them worked. No, they did work, but Lee Jiwon was still standing and laughing like a madman.
Fayez broke out in a cold sweat. For each step forward Lee Jiwon took, Fayez took a step back. Fayez wasn’t sure what was going on, but he was afraid for his life.
Then, Lee Jiwon stopped dead in his tracks. He looked like a marionette doll with its strings cut. Fayez clenched his teeth, angry that he felt fear from a mere deva. “Spirits of Death, gather to me! Show this place your power so that my enemies may tremble before your might! Rainstorm of Death!”
The sky rumbled as dark clouds gathered over Fayez and Lee Jiwon. Black raindrops of a deathly aura rained down upon the still Lee Jiwon as thunder rolled and black lightning cracked in the air.
Then, Fayez thought that his eyes were playing tricks on him. One second he was looking at Lee Jiwon and the next, he was looking up at the sky. Then, he was looking at the ground, as if he was upside down…
He heard a deafening boom that brought him back to his senses. He was flying through the air. He turned his head to see Lee Jiwon standing outside of the Rainstorm’s range, with his arm outstretched and missing his spear. Lee Jiwon had attacked Fayez so fast that it took Fayez a second to realize what had happened. Before Fayez could react, Fayez hit the ground hard, so hard that his body burrowed a hole into the ground from the force of the blow. Fayez painfully got back up, only to notice that he had flown twenty meters away from Lee Jiwon.
Shaman Ko had temporarily taken over Lee Jiwon’s body. His surroundings were new and unfamiliar, but that made it more fun to Shaman Ko. That is, if it wasn’t for the black aura that was raining down on him. Shaman Ko didn’t like being attacked.
Shaman Ko looked up to see his enemy before him and charged. He threw away the long stick in his hand and slammed his right palm into the chest of his enemy. He watched as his enemy flew through the air, spinning like a Frisbee.
“Kekeke.” It was funny to Shaman Ko to see a giant man spin like that. Shaman Ko sprinted over to his new toy. It was twenty meters away, but Shaman Ko used Lee Jiwon’s body to cross the distance in an instant. It was so fast it was almost like Shaman Ko had used Blink. Shaman Ko straddled Fayez’s back.
“Argh! Get off of me! Wave of Death!”
A wave of black liquid crashed its way towards Shaman Ko, but Shaman Ko grabbed it with his hands and brought it to his mouth. “Ptooey! It tastes bad! You eat it!” After chewing at the liquid a couple of times, Shaman Ko spat the liquid out and ripped the liquid with his hands and started throwing the blobs at Fayez.
“Ha…?” Never before had Fayez seen anyone block his Wave of Death attack like that. Not even Lee Jiwon had done so… until now.
Fayez squirmed to try to get Lee Jiwon off of him, but couldn’t make Lee Jiwon move. No, it was more accurate to say that Fayez could barely move an inch. It was like Lee Jiwon weighed a thousand tons.
“Death Bomb! Death Bomb! Death Bomb!” Fayez set off consecutive explosions at Lee Jiwon, but to no avail.
“Kekeke! Fireworks! Kekeke!”
“…” Fayez was at a loss for words. Just a few minutes ago, those attacks had inflicted severe damage on Lee Jiwon, but now he was laughing as they exploded in his face. The way Lee Jiwon was talking had changed as well. Fayez remembered the small child that had appeared by Lee Jiwon’s side a few moments ago.
“Kekeke! You got more?” Fayez’s Armor, which had deflected Lee Jiwon’s attacks and even withstood the hammer attack, was now being ripped to shreds by Lee Jiwon’s hands.
“Kekeke! This is fun!”
“Fuck…Fuck! Get off!” Fayez was afraid. He could only watch as Lee Jiwon ripped away at the last of his Armor.
“Huh? Are you dead?”
“Who’s dead!? Spear of Death! Thorns of Death! Death Burst!” Fayez threw all the attacks he had at Lee Jiwon consecutively, but was only rewarded with the same maniacal cackling.
“Kekeke! This is fun! Do it more!”
“Huh? You’re not going to? Then it’s my turn!”
Fayez could only watch as Lee Jiwon grabbed hold of Fayez’s ankles.
“Gah!” He could only cry out in pain as Lee Jiwon slammed him into the ground repeatedly…
