“I don’t know, either. It’s not like I’ve tried being a Summoner…”
“No, you could have seen it in the community, though. I just asked since it seemed like you were interested in Summoners lately.”
“Well… I don’t know. To be honest, there are probably no Summoners who are at the level to go to the Abysmal lake, so there’s no way information about it would have been released.”
Ian, who was momentarily curious as to what they were talking about, lost interest and tried to sleep.
‘What the hell, they aren’t talking about much anyways.’
However, when Ian tried to turn his head, a conversation that caught his attention for the first time began.
“But Hines, you know my friend Loren, right? The friend that reset his lv 20 Warrior that he was raising and began to raise a Summoner again this time.”
“Yeah, I know Loren. You were bragging about a Summoner friend of yours that was raising their level incredibly fast. Why?”
“Ah, it’s nothing else but Loren, was it yesterday? They were bragging that they discovered something called a Familiar’s Egg.”
As soon as he heard the word Familiar’s Egg, Ian’s gaze changed. This was because this was information he was encountering for the first time.
Additionally, he developed a slight interest towards the Summoner called Loren, who supposedly was leveling fast.
While Ian had both his eyes closed, he listened more carefully to the two peoples’ conversation. The conversation continued.
“Yeah, a Familiar’s Egg. He said it was probably the Egg of a Golden Serpent.”
“How do you know that?”
“He said he got it from the Golden Serpent Nest, so obviously…”
Ian listened in on their conversation, in hopes of gleaning any more information about the Familiar’s egg. However, no matter how hard he listened, there wasn’t anything noteworthy so he became slightly upset.
He lost interest, realizing that the user named Loren was probably not even at lv 30, no matter how fast they leveled. This was because the hunting ground where the Golden Serpent came out was a hunting ground suitable for someone in the mid-20 level range.
‘But how did they found out something like that existed? I need to find out properly next time.’
Aside from Ian’s thoughts becoming more complicated, the two people continued to talk.
“But it seems like they haven’t figured out how to hatch the egg.”
“Well, wouldn’t it just hatch on its own over time?”
“Idiot, when you left an egg on its own, did you see it hatch?”
Ian, who continued to listen to the conversation of the two quarrel with each other, mumbled to himself.
‘Is it simply just a monster’s egg? What is it exactly? If I find a habitat of a monster, I’ll have to look through it carefully.’
As expected, as it hasn’t been long since the new classes had been released, Ian felt that not only himself but others were finding out new information one after another.
‘Wouldn’t they have made it possible to use a boss-rank monster that you normally can’t tame as a Familiar if you gain something like an egg…?’
Ian’s experimental instinct was once again invoked.
‘I must be on guard.’
Ian resolved his heart once again.
Leveling up was important as well but he thought that he couldn’t just neglect to gather information.
They continued their conversation about this and that again but Ian, who decided that there wasn’t much to gain from it, turned his attention away now and turned his head.
“Ly, if you see an island over there, wake me up.”
Ian, who was tired after hunting for a long time, fell asleep immediately and the boat that he was riding on slowly approached Abysmal Island.
When about 1 hour passed, a giant island of blue glacial ice slowly began to reveal itself from within the thick fog. Ly, who was looking around while fascinated by the sight he had never seen before in his life, slightly pushed Ian’s shoulder when he clearly saw the large island.
“Hmm… Are we here now?”
After Ian stretched, he stood up from his spot.
‘Even though I’ve already been here once, it’s still fascinating.’
The bow of the ghost ship slowly reached the island accompanied by an unpleasant creaking sounds.
Along with the light sound, the boat stopped and the users that boarded the boat, including Ian, got off the boat and observed their surroundings.
“Wow, this is my first timing coming to Abysmal Island but something about it is creepy. Since it’s ice all around, it’s also incredibly cold.”
“No kidding. I’m freezing to death.”
As the users that got off with him were cold, they began to shiver and were not much different.
‘Er, should I have dressed more warmly?’
As the other users went to go do the Magician quest, they hurried and headed towards the middle of the island. This was because the location for the Magician quest, Matab, was right in the centre of the island.
Ian momentarily looked around before moving his feet.
Unlike the other users, he began to move along the coastline instead of towards the middle of the Island.
Ice Golems were monsters that existed anywhere on Abysmal Island. However, rather than the middle of the island, Ian knew that there were more towards the western coast.
“Shall we slowly start grinding?”
Ian, who found a reasonable area to catch Ice Golems, momentarily sat on a rock. Before earnestly starting, he was planning on eating the food he received from Harin.
“Ly, eat this.”
Ian threw Ly a meatball that Harin gave him. The meatball was very small in comparison to Ly’s large build but he ate it deliciously.
And shortly after, a system message popped up in Ian’s view.
Familiar ‘Ly’ ate the chewy meatball.
Ian was in awe at the message that popped up.
“Whoa, this time even Agility increased by 20?”
As he was only expecting Health increase, he was even happier at the extra 20 Agility. On top of that, the duration doubled.
“Should I try one, too?”
Ian lifted a meatball but since a lot of raw meat was mixed in, it had a slightly fishy smell, so Ian gave up.
‘There was a reason why she said to give it to Ly.’
Ian abandoned all of his desire towards the meatballs and began to eat the steak that Harin gave to him.
‘Wow… It’s delicious.’
Ian was firstly in awe at the taste. And once he ate all the steak, another message formed.
You ate the ‘Tender, High-grade Steak’.
Another message that was more surprising popped up in the view of Ian, who was in awe of the effect that was higher than the meatballs.
You have eaten a high-grade dish for the first time. All of your stats have permanently increased by 3.
