>Just as always, I used Letter Arrow.
If you know your enemy and know yourself, in a hundred battles you will never be defeated.
But I’ve fought well over a hundred battles.
So perhaps the odds weren’t that much in my favor anymore…!

◆ Pale Rider
Attribute: Angel
Skill: Shadow of Death, Pale Apocalypse
One of the four horsemen from Revelations that appear at the end of the world.
As the fourth horseman, the Pale Rider is the lord of ‘death.’
He is accompanied by a shadow that causes instant death if you touch it, and he swings a great scythe that harvests lives.

So it was instant death after all…
But there was no need to panic.
In every game, you can’t become the strongest with such skills!
There are many restrictions and they are difficult to use.
At least…for the player.

But they often seemed unfair when bosses used them.
So maybe I should panic a little…
In any case, I should keep my distance… It was as I thought such things that the Pale Rider activated his skill.
A black shadow appeared right next to him.
It looked like a human, a beast, an angel and also a devil.

“Hades…brings forth death…”

The Pale Rider talked!
I guess they had to give you a heads up about the instant death thing.
A lot of players didn’t have probing skills like I did.

Now, apparently I would die instantly if I touched the Shadow of Death.
But my attacks should still be effective, I think.
After all, it would leave those in the advance guard in a terrible position.
My guess was that it didn’t count if you touched it with weapons or attack skills.
Surely it should have a weakness where it would stop moving after you’ve inflicted a certain amount of damage.
Because you would die if you missed.

“Well, it doesn’t apply to me, because I can attack at a distance…!”

And so I used Warp Arrow to escape to the edge of the battle area.
I also had Garbow activate Ocean Sphere and quickly move away from the Pale Rider and the Shadow of Death.
There would be no close quarters combat today.
While the shadow was slow, I thought it would be cruel to demand that Garbow attack it while also running away.
Unison AIs were not that skilled.

Now that I was far away, it was time to shoot!
The black shadow really stuck out on top of the white snow.
So I never lost sight of it.

As for the Pale Rider…it didn’t move?
I see.
It was the boss and so it wouldn’t make sense if it charged ahead of the Shadow of Death.
And the players would want to separate the dangerous shadows from the boss.

In my case, I was glad that it didn’t charge at me.
Because I could calmly shoot it like I was doing now!

“Burning Arrow Storm!”

I was targeting the Pale Rider.
I didn’t know for sure, but my instincts were telling me that while you could slow it down, the Shadow of Death was a skill that couldn’t be erased completely.
And so I was better off attacking the main body…!

The Pale Rider twirled the great scythe and blocked the arrows.
At the same time, pale bullets of energy shot out from its body and knocked the arrows out of the air.
It was surprisingly dexterous… But It shouldn’t be able to block all of them.
The exploding arrows chipped away at the Pale Rider’s HP.

“Gar! Gar!”

It was Garbow’s cry of hostility.
But the Pale Rider was far away and not within range of Garbow’s attacks.
As survival was the main priority this time, I had kept him close by.
Garbow wasn’t supposed to cry if he couldn’t attack…


The Shadow of Death was a lot closer than I had thought.
So it…grew faster as time passed.
If I took too long, it would start chasing me around with swift instant kill attacks.
Should I have Garbow attack it?
No, I had a better idea…!

“Change weapon! Spider Shooter Cloud!”

My other main bow, Spider Shooter Cloud, might be able to slow it down with Web Cloud Arrow.
I shot the sticky web at both the Shadow of Death and the Pale Rider.
And then I learned something.
Web Cloud Arrow was also durable against slash attacks.

The Pale Rider swung its scythe in order to cut through the descending webs, but it was unable to.
Instead, its arm just became more tangled.
Now it could no longer stylishly swing its great scythe.
The Shadow of Death also tried to tear through it with its claws, but failed and fell over.
But it continued to flail around, which caused snow to stick to it so that it became like a snowball.

Apparently, cloud spider webs were very effective against the rider of death and death itself.
Very good, Web Cloud Arrow!
It was easy to take down an enemy when their movement was restricted.
And so the Pale Rider was destroyed shortly after, and it disappeared into light.
At the same time, the snowball…the Shadow of Death, also disappeared.

The seasonal flower then appeared as if to take their place.
It was a ‘snowflake.’
So they weren’t even using plants now.
Well, some people did call snowflakes ‘snow flowers,’ so it wasn’t really surprising.
Now I had four flowers blooming on my head.
It was the completion of an old man who looked rather extreme!

I got onto the warp panel enthusiastically and returned to the central floor.
There, Charin was already waiting for me.

‘The time has come…nyon.’

She said softly.
