The Sniper, Gather Materials For Rifles.
Now, I need to gather materials for my new rifle.
But I don’t allocate any points to the Life skills, so of course I don’t have [Mining].
If I don’t do it seriously, I won’t be able to get any ores.
So there are two ways to do this.
I can either buy them from the stalls that players open in town, or I can PK and try to get drops from players.
Buying from stalls is the safest way, but it will cost a lot of money.
On the other hand, PKing does not cost money, but the chances of drops are probable, so it takes time.
However, in the future, there will be an increase in the number of situations where I have to PK to collect materials.
If so, this is a good opportunity to think about how to collect as many materials as possible in as short of a time as possible.
It’s good practice to think about that.
I sit down on a bench in the fountain square and close my eyes.
I’m in contemplation mode.
Obviously, I can’t get the ore unless I kill a player who has it.
So who are the players who have the ore?
A blacksmith, or a combat job who wants to make a request to a blacksmith.
Which one should I target?
The blacksmith, who has no means of fighting back, is of course the easier target.
So where can I find a blacksmith?
There are many in the town, but the town is a no PK area.
Where are they outside the town?
In the mining area.
If I want to mine, I’ll have to go to the mines.
But the mining area is indoors.
Moreover, the tunnel is narrow.
It’s not a place where I can fight with a sniper rifle.
So what do I do?
I wait for them to come out.
Stake out the entrance to the mine, then shoot the blacksmiths coming out of the mine, from a distance.
I guess that’s it.
Most of the blacksmiths are probably general players, so it’s not surprising that they would call me an outcast, but…
If I could kill them from a distance where they couldn’t see me, they wouldn’t know it was me in the first place, and there would be no problem.
I don’t think there’s any need to hide the fact that I’m a PK player, but there’s nothing better than not being recognized.
Once that’s decided, it’s time to move on.
Because time is limited.
That’s why I go to the mine area.
The entrance to the mine is halfway up the mountain.
Of course, I don’t go that close.
I hide myself in the forest on the other side of the mountain, where I can see the whole mountainside.
When I climb a tree, I can snipe downward, so the angle is perfect.
I find a thick branch that’s sturdy and unbreakable, and take a position there.
After observing from a distance for a while, I see a group of players who look like blacksmiths coming and going, carrying pickaxes.
There is no need for the players to enter now.
I’m here for the players who are coming out of the mine with their faces beaming with pride after mining a lot of ore.
I raise my sniper rifle and look through the scope at the entrance to the mine.
There’s not that much traffic in and out.
Besides, it seems that the blacksmiths are usually solo, and they don’t seem to come and go together in parties.
I guess that’s true…
There’s no point in forming a party for mining, let alone fighting monsters.
This is a good thing.
Just then, a blacksmith comes out of the entrance.
Judging by the satisfied look on his face, he must have successfully finished mining.
There’s no one following him; it’s only him.
I set my sights on the blacksmith’s head.
The blacksmith is wiping sweat off his face, oblivious to the fact that he is being targeted.
I put my finger on the trigger.
The blacksmith player becomes a particle of light and disappears.
There were no witnesses.
It’s important to keep these witnesses to a minimum.
I don’t want the other blacksmiths to be wary of me and keep me in the mine.
I check the item section.
Yes, there’s some iron ore in there.
It looks like my aim was right.
Another player comes out of the mine.
Oops, he’s with a guy who looks like a combat job.
Are there monsters in the mine, and they’re hunting them?
Or… is he guarding him from PK players?
If I think about it, as long as there’s PK, it’s no surprise that there’s a form of escort play.
I don’t know if they’re escorting their friends, or if they’re getting paid to do it, but if they’re careful players, they might even hire an escort.
This duo is a pass.
If the guards happen to spot me, I’m dead.
I’m a poor sniper (armor: cloth clothes).
It would be safer to go after the solo blacksmith.
I continue to PK for a while, focusing on players who come out alone.
I take every precaution to ensure there are no witnesses.
Sorry to the blacksmiths who dropped the ore, but good luck digging again.
I’ll kill them again if I run into them. Hahahahaha!
That’s how I get my goal of silver ore and iron ore.
