Ian began to catch wolves to the point he fell into a trance. However, just as he thought, a wolf better than the one ‘Agile Wolf’ from the first eight he caught didn’t appear so easily.
Through repeated successful captures, your Affinity stat has increased by 1.
As you obtained the nickname ‘Wolf Expert’, from now on when you try to capture a wolf, it will be easier to gain Affinity.
Ian’s expression brightened up. To have the skill to differentiate the best wolves without capturing them was a big help to his grinding.
‘While they’re at it, can’t they just apply that to every monster?’
Ian grumbled internally, but he knew well that that was a robber’s devilish mind.
Ian examined the wolves that were wandering the field. And among them, he discovered a wolf that had a name faintly shining gold.
‘Is it this one?’
He approached the wolf without hesitation. And just like he had done until now, after he easily captured it, he opened the stat window.
Classification: Wild Animal
Offensive Power: 30
Defensive Power: 12
It’s a normal wolf that inhabits grasslands. It has fast feet and sharp teeth.
As expected, he had caught one with outstanding stats from a modifier attached to its name.
Ian’s smile deepened.
“The wolf’s offensive power is at 30, huh?”
Compared to the ones with ‘Weak’ or ‘Mean’ or other inferior modifiers, it was a difference of almost 1.5 times.
However, several wolves around this level were already caught through his grinding. He had no intention of quitting his grinding until he caught one that was significantly greater.
Right then, a wolf that was a little far away with a name that was distinctly shining gold caught Ian’s eyes.
Without even realizing, an exclamation broke out from Ian. And before anybody else could discover it, he hurriedly ran towards the wolf. This was because if someone killed it before Ian caught it, it would become a big problem.
The wolf growled as it saw Ian approach it.
“This little, what are you going to do if you stare?”
Whether it was because Ian’s smirk disgusted it, the wolf charged towards him instantly. The difference in its swiftness and movements could be felt when compared to the wolves that he had caught already.
However, despite that, the wolf couldn’t do anything else but submit to Ian’s incredible stats.
You have succeeded in capturing the ‘Wolf’.
‘Name? It’s too troublesome, so should I Just call it wolf?’
Ian, who thought about it for a moment, decided to name the wolf ‘Ly’. There was no big meaning, but it was a name using the first two letters of Lycanthrope, meaning man-wolf.
“Ly, your name is now Ly.”
Whether it was because it liked the name that Ian gave it, the wolf growled and rubbed its head against Ian’s leg.
Ly like its own name.
Ian had a doubtful expression when he saw the system message.
‘Was there a Loyalty stat?’
And after checking the wolf’s stat window, Ian nodded his head.
‘It’s visible when you open up the detailed stat window.’
There was a concept called ‘Detailed Stat Window’ even for a character’s stat window. It was a part where you could see detailed stats like specific offensive and defensive power, critical hit chance, and different attributes and resistances as well as others. The Familiar’s stat window was similar.
‘Its loyalty is 70%. As expected, the max is probably 100%, right?’
Firstly, Ian used the only active skill for combat he had for hunting.
“Blessings of the Wind!”
You have used ‘Blessings of the Wind’. Your agility will increase by 37%. The agility of Familiar ‘Ly’ will increase by 37%.
Ian lifted his bow and took aim at the Red Fox that was visible.
