Maple Story Blogs: Perspectives of the Characters
Having felt I killed enough monsters, I headed back to Ellinia to get some more magic skills from Grendel. He didn't seem too thrilled at me when I came back.|
Even though I hate the feeling I get when I use teleport--which is actually pretty useful--he suggested that I try to learn it some more, because the more I know it, the further I'll teleport and the less bad it'll feel. Suddenly, I see this image of a snail appear over his head for a split second, and next thing I know, everything around me was a blur for a couple minutes. I was still dazed a bit when it was over.
"That's called Slow, and it'll be very useful for you, especially in case some huge beast, much larger than a boar for sure, comes running towards you. I'll teach you it when I see you learning to master Teleport." Then he smiled and walked away.
Yea, I've already had a huge beast run after me. They call it a Tauromacis, and if it weren't for several others and their help, I would've been a goner. Then again, my cold beam could freeze them, stopping them completely. I wasn't sure if I wanted to learn Slow if I could already stop something in its tracks. Plus it seemed more like a defensive spell, and like Pops always told me, a good defence is a strong offence.
So one night while Grendel was asleep I snuck into the library and did a crash course in learning a new spell: Thunderbolt. I learned only enough to use the basic version, because I quickly left after I thought I heard something move.
Level 1 thunderbolt was pathetic; I couldn't even kill snails with it! But now it's a little better and in a few days, I hope to be able to kill annoying bubblings. And as for Grendel? He'll probably be furious, so I'll spend a little more time away from him. I'll spend a bit more time on the beach, sipping tasty drinks and looking at those island babes. And since I've mastered Cold Beam, I won't have to worry about heatstroke!
