I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 2. [Spearman Lv. 1] (2)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Fafa
“I have to try.”
Even with his weak attribute, he could still try apply to the Academy. After taking an attribute test, anyone is qualified to apply.
In this medieval world with nobility and such, the Academy was a beam of light- a beacon of hope for the non-nobles.
“Will I be able to make it?”
A small sigh escaped him as he muttered to himself. It had already become a habit for him to talk to himself when he was alone.
If he managed to excel at the Academy, he could be taken in by a noble family or be taken to the Imperial City. That was the life he wanted- a life of ease.
Of course, he had also wanted a comfortable life being a main character, or maybe some supporting character with an overwhelming talent, but his more modest expectation right now was that he wanted a “secured future.”
He just wanted to do his job without anything interfering with his life.
With a sigh, he opened the detailed window of his spearman attribute.
Attribute name: Spearman
Current attribute level: 1
Description: When you wield a spear, you gain a ”correction.”
The description was such a simple explanation that anyone would believe that another aspect was missing.
He wondered what was so important about receiving a “correction,” but he supposed there was an inexplicable difference between having one or not.
He had expected his attribute to have that grade, but seeing the letters spelled out and describing him further complicated his thoughts.
His attribute not only seemed short-range, but it belonged to the physical group. It could be considered a real mess in this world. Posted only on NovelUtopia
Most monsters have overwhelming resistance to physical attacks.
Even a goblin has thick skin, so it was not easy to wound it with a common weapon like a spear, and even if the monster was killed, the maintenance of the weapon blade was usually costly.
Besides, there was no instructor at the Academy who could handle a spear.
If he knew nothing, he would have had hope. Ignorance is bliss, after all.
Now he regretted knowing so much about the world of the Great Royal Academy.
Then he shook his head quickly.
Only two months to go.
The entrance exam to apply to the academy was just two months away.
He didn’t have time to regret his attribute any longer.
Now he had to get an iron spear and somehow increase the level of his attribute. He needed to at least get into the Academy to have a chance of a comfortable life.
He immediately headed towards a smithy- a blacksmith’s workshop.
Two months had passed.
His heart was about to explode.
He felt as if his heart was about to burst.
Then the attribute window appeared in his view.

*Possessed Attributes 
A smile appeared on his mouth despite his cursing.
He had made it.
He wanted to scream out loud, but he was at a limit where it was hard to breathe.
After two months of effort, he was able to raise his attribute to level 3.
Although several values of his stats had also increased, the most inspiring thing for him was the fact that he had increased his spearman level.
This is an acceptable level.
The attribute levels of the candidates for the Academy entrance exam when he previously read the novel had an average of 2.
Those who had really amazing attributes could pass the entrance exam even at level 1. But with his common grade attribute, it could never happen to him. So for the past two months, he had made a chilling effort to raise the level of his attribute.
He wiped away the sweat running down his cheeks as he exhaled sharply.
He could tell that his body had changed.
He rolled over like a dog.
His body improved because he forced himself to exercise.
It was a big improvement if one took into account that the attribute levels, which didn’t usually go up much, had gone up 2 levels in this case.
It was uncommon for attribute levels to increase.
Before leaving the training camp to go to the Academy entrance exam site, he turned his gaze to the side. The training camp he was working at was in the center of the city, therefore there were many people hard at work around him looking to improve their attribute level as well.
And among them, there was a woman who stood out to him.
With her blue hair that reached her waist and her eyes that shone as if they were full of stars, he sensed at once that this woman was not ordinary.
She was wielding a sword.
The slash of her sword invoked a strong wind, so he couldn’t help but look at her.
What kind of attribute did she have?
Certainly it was a good one- a basic attribute like Swordsman didn’t cause winds like that.
He couldn’t believe his eyes.
There was a similar attribute to Swordsman with a magnificent name, the title was held by the main character of the novel, First Heavenly Sword.
He was sure that the blue-haired woman he was looking at was…. No, maybe she was just someone who had a different outstanding attribute.
He considered her attribute to at the very least have a grade of rare.
Suddenly, she looked at him. He waved his hand gently despite the awkwardness.
She turned her face immediately once seeing him. Han Seong froze like a stone.
