Chapter 169 – Part 2


Translation: Charlotte
Editor: Weasalopes


I somehow managed to defeat the A-gyo.

But it was a close match.

【Practiced Spirit】 had already expired.

【Gravity Mail】 was about to expire too.

Same went for all my enchant spells.

 

And what about my Monster Summons?

They turned the Un-gyo into a pitiful thing.

Both its legs were completely covered by Creep.

Where I could see part of its legs, there were bite marks everywhere.

Its weapon wasn’t in its hand, and Jericho was holding it down.

Jericho was sending fist after fist into it.

On top of that, Jean was biting at its head, and Bunraku was shooting arrows at it from a distance away.

Mumyo was working on crushing the side Jericho wasn’t dealing with.

 

Yep.

Sorry…

《Please put one point into a desired stat.》

 

 

It’s here.

I had been using Mumyo for about a day now…

All according to plan.

 

The stat that went up with the level-up was SPI.

I put another point into INT.

 

Mumyo Skeleton Lv7→Lv8 (↑1)

DEX 16

AGI 16

INT 13 (↑1)

STR 13

VIT 13

SPI 13 (↑ 1)

《Monster Summons 『Mumyo』 has cleared the Class Change conditions!》

《Please go to the Monster Summons stat screen to access the Class Change candidates.》

 

 

Nice.

But that wasn’t all.

 

 

《Monster Summons 『Creep』 Level Up!》

《Please put one point into a desired stat.》

 

 

Very nice.

Well…

Creep kind of looked like a breathing rope.

Tying together the feet of the enemy was a pretty good strategy.

 

The stat that went up with the level-up was VIT.

I put another point into DEX.

 

 

Creep Viper Lv4→Lv5 (↑1)

DEX 12 (↑1)

AGI 16

VIT 17 (↑1)

SPI 11

 

Skills:

Very nice.

Was that it?

They didn’t drop any items, but I wasn’t going to complain.

I hurried to the closest portal.

There was something greater I was looking forward to.

 

 

I ran into some other players on the way to the portal, but there were fewer of them than before.

A group of players was fighting a pair of Lion-dogs.

They looked like Summoners too.

2 Summoners and 4 Monster Summons.

They were fighting in a Union, huh.

 

I resisted the temptation to sit down and watch, and took the long way round to the closest Relay Portal.

I had to focus on the Class Change.

 

 

 

 

Alright…

First, I had to check the current stats.

I pulled up Mumyo’s current stats and took a screenshot.

 

Mumyo Skeleton Lv8

DEX 16

AGI 16

INT 13

STR 13

VIT 13

SPI 13

 

Skills:

Hammer Buckler Block Physical Resistance [Slight] Self-Repair [Medium] Dark Attribute

 

 

Wow.

What a beautiful array of numbers.

I was reluctant to see it break down.

 

 

Class Change Candidates

Skeleton Fighter

Skeleton Hunter

Skeleton Sorcerer

 

 

Three candidates?

The names just looked like a beginner player’s job choice list.

Thinking about Mumyo’s role so far, I guess Skeleton Fighter would be best?

 

 

Mumyo Skeleton Lv8 → Skeleton Fighter Lv1 (New!)

DEX 16

AGI 16

INT 13

STR 14 (↑ 1)

VIT 14 (↑1)

SPI 13

 

Skills:

Sword (New!) Hammer [ ] Buckler Block Physical Resistance [Small] (New!) Self-Repair [Medium] Dark Attribute

 

 

【Skeleton Fighter】 Monster Summons Battle Position: Ground

A humanoid undead skeleton. Its main method of its attack are its weapons.

Its physique is similar to a human’s. Suited to fighting in both the front and the back.

It can master any weapon used by humans.

It has extraordinary night vision. It also has more power than a normal Skeleton.

Has the ability to continue repairing itself endlessly unless both its cores are destroyed.

Be careful as it weakens under sunlight.

 

 

It got a new skill.

And 【Physical Resistance】 changed from [Slight] to [Small].

It had an empty skill slot, so I guess that meant I could teach it something else too.

Yep.

Having a bow would make Mumyo match Goki.

And then 【Self-Repair】 would lose its purpose too.

Skeleton Fighter was definitely the right choice.

 

 

《Do you wish to go through with the Class Change?》

《Yes》 《No》

 

 

I still wanted to take a look at the other candidates though, so I ignored the prompt for the time being.

Next.

 

 

Mumyo Skeleton Lv8 → Skeleton Hunter Lv1 (New!)

DEX 17 (↑1)

AGI 17 (↑1)

INT 13

STR 13

VIT 13

SPI 13

 

Skills:

Bow (New!) Hammer [ ] Buckler Block Physical Resistance [Small] (New!) Self-Repair [Medium] Dark Attribute

 

 

【Skeleton Hunter】 Monster Summons Battle Position: Ground

A humanoid undead skeleton. Its main method of its attack are its weapons.

Its physique is similar to a human’s. Suited to fighting in both the front and the back.

It can master any weapon used by humans.

It has extraordinary night vision. It is also faster than a normal skeleton.

Has the ability to continue repairing itself endlessly unless both its cores are destroyed.

Be careful as it weakens under sunlight.

 

 

A 【Bow】 skill appeared…

And the stat increases were to DEX and AGI.

Just thinking about the stats definitely made this one seem pretty good.

Although I still wanted Mumyo to fight in the front.

But still…

I was actually starting to consider it.

I myself as a Summoner do like to fight in the front too.

It wouldn’t be out of the question for a Skeleton Hunter to fight in the front.

 

For the time being, I checked out the next candidate.

 

 

Mumyo Skeleton Lv8 → Skeleton Sorcerer Lv1 (New!)

DEX 16

AGI 16

INT 14 (↑1)

STR 13

VIT 13

SPI 14 (↑ 1)

 

Skills:

Staff (New!) Hammer [ ] Buckler Block Physical Resistance [Small] (New!) Self-Repair [Medium] Dark Attribute

 

 

【Skeleton Sorcerer】 Monster Summons Battle Position: Ground

A humanoid undead skeleton. Its main method of its attack are its weapons.

Its physique is similar to a human’s. Suited to fighting in both the front and the back.

It can master any weapon used by humans.

It has extraordinary night vision. It also has more powerful Special Skills than a normal Skeleton.

Has the ability to continue repairing itself endlessly unless both its cores are destroyed.

Be careful as it weakens under sunlight.

 

 

As expected, the skill 【Staff】 appeared.

The skill slot let me give it another attribute.

There were four options: Fire, Wind, Earth, and Water.

In terms of its skills, it was the most attractive option.

If I wanted to have Mumyo fight in the front, I could just have Mumyo use a hammer like always.

 

 

For the time being, I took a screenshot of the descriptions and stats.

I wanted to have a word with the GMs.

They were really slacking on the explanatory texts!

 

 

Hmm…

I changed my mind.

I chose a skill to fill the empty slot and hit《Yes》.

 

 

Mumyo Skeleton Lv8 → Skeleton Sorcerer Lv1 (New!)

DEX 16

AGI 16

INT 14 (↑1)

STR 13

VIT 13

SPI 14 (↑ 1)

 

Skills:

Staff (New!) Hammer Buckler Block Physical Resistance [Small] (New!) Self-Repair [Medium] Dark Attribute Fire Attribute (New!)

 

 

Thinking about my Monster Summons lineup, I had a lot of vanguards.

With more skills, Mumyo could easily fight in both the front and the back.

Mumyo’s hammer did have a detrimental effect on magic, but I suppose that went for a lot of other players too.

I was just grateful that Mumyo’s crab armour wouldn’t get in the way.

I handed Mumyo my Staff of Torture.

I could make another one over lunch.

I still had my tonfas, after all.

 

 

Great.

Let’s get Mumyo to perform.

As expected, I didn’t have the freedom to just sit and watch with Deva Kings.

I had to look for a pair of Gozu and Mezu.

I knew there were two spawn points at the end of the tunnel.

I started heading towards them.

 

 

 

I only knew of two spawn points at the end of the tunnel.

But the pair did not spawn at one of the points.

Looked like someone else had already taken them out that day.

The other point was fine, though.

 

 

Gozu Lv.5

Phantom Enemy Target Passive

Battle Position: Ground Fire Attribute

 

Mezu Lv.5

Phantom Enemy Target Passive

Battle Position: Ground Fire Attribute

 

 

Good.

I started by putting 【Disassembly】 in reserve.

I only used strengthening spells on myself.

I wanted to know Mumyo’s base strength.

I didn’t give out any special instructions.

 

Now…

What’s going to happen?

 

 

 

 

Before my eyes was Jericho, who was holding the Mezu’s head in one hand and fighting the Gozu with the other.

 

It was hard to look at.

 

At a basic level, their fighting style did not change.

Mumyo was still fighting like usual, with the Hammer of Roars and a buckler.

Well, Jericho and Creep were doing a big part of the fighting too…

 

But there was something new too.

Some kind of special attack.

Something like a black shadow rushed at the Gozu and swallowed it.

It didn’t do much damage, but the Gozu got affected by an abnormal status condition.

Darkness…

The status condition did cause it to trip and fall over though, which let Mumyo do a lot more damage with a hammer.

Well, that’s one way to go about it.

Mumyo took some damage, but the fight ended without any issues.

Mumyo could recover the damage pretty easily.

I was looking forward to having Mumyo contribute in the same way Goki could.

 

 

I guess I could try and fight a pair of Deva Kings? No… Deva Emperors?

 

 

I left the Relay Portal and went out into the nearest hall.

Someone was fighting a pair of Deva Kings.

I ignored them.

I went to the next-closest spawn point.

There was nobody there.

No players in sight.

 

Good.

I could fight in peace.

 

I fully used all my spells to strengthen myself before I took on the challenge.

I didn’t hesitate to use 【Power Water】.

 

 

Deva King – A-gyo Lv.2

Heavenly General Active

Battle Position: Ground Fire Attribute

 

Deva King – Un-gyo Lv.2

Heavenly General Active

Battle position: Earth Earth Attribute

 

 

Wait…

Why were they so weak!?

 

 

 

I was genuinely confused.

To face tougher Gozu and Mezu, I knew I had to get rid of 【Disassembly】 and pick up the item drops.

But it seemed like a different system for the Deva Kings.

Maybe it was completely random?

Was their maximum level based on my own level?

That would make sense…

 

I took care of the A-gyo using a triangle choke.

I didn’t know how to describe it, but…

The difference in strength was too big!

To be honest, I really didn’t need 【Gravity Mail】 or 【Power Water】.

 

What about the Un-gyo?

It was an easy victory on that front too.

I didn’t know how to describe it either.

All I could say was that I had gone and wasted some MP.

 

 

I got a Strange Salt (Holy) from it.

That was fine, but it would’ve been nice to get some more value for all my spells.

But conveniently, there was nobody else around.

Nobody else was looking to fight some Deva Kings.

Let’s go again!

 

But my next opponents were…

 

 

Deva Emperor – A-gyo Lv.1

Heavenly Commander Active

Battle Position: Ground Fire Attribute Water Resistance

 

Deva Emperor – Un-gyo Lv.1

Heavenly Commander Active

Battle position: Earth Earth Attribute Wind Resistance

 

 

No no no no!

What was with the massive difference!?

 

 

 

I wanted to file a complaint to the GMs.

I managed to win somehow, so all’s well that ends well…

But I would love to have more of a clue as to what their levels were going to be.

It was really getting quite frustrating.

 

My HP bar was down to half.

Jericho took quite a bit of damage too, about 30% of his HP bar.

Mumyo took half of his HP bar too, but I wasn’t too concerned.

Mumyo could recover that naturally, after all.

Creep had only 30% left, so I first used a recovery spell to fix that.

It was about time for me to take a break.

For the time being, I felt like sticking to Gozu and Mezu was the wiser choice.

《Racial Level Up! Please add 1 point to two desired stats.》

 

 

It was a tough battle but it had some great rewards!

It was definitely a hot and very painful battle tough.

Go easy on me please!

 

I said my last complaints in my head and then looked at the info screens.

What a beautiful set of numbers.

All multiples of 6.

 

What next?

Maybe I could go for multiples of 9?

Or maybe multiples of 5?

In any case, INT and SPI were definitely next.

 

《You have received 2 Bonus Points. You currently have a total of 39 Bonus Points.》

 

 

Good.

But the info screens continued.

 

 

《Monster Summons 『Jean』 Level Up!》

《Please put one point into a desired stat.》

 

 

Was it really was just a very strong enemy?

It was a lot of level-ups for just one fight.

 

The stat that went up with the level-up was SPI.

I put another point into INT.

Phew.

Looked like it was finally over.

 

 

But there was still something else I had to do.

The Deva Emperors dropped something.

It looked familiar.

I used【Appraise】on it.

 

 

【Weapon: Sword】Tokkosho Grade B Rarity 5

AP ?  Power ?  Weight 1 Durability ?

Enchanted Attribute ?

A weapon used by Heavenly Generals. Changes depending on the user’s power. Made of an unknown material.

A strong weapon, but its durability cannot be restored.

 

 

What’s this?

It looked like the weapon that would always disappear whenever the Deva Kings were defeated.

But the weapon was now in my hands.

 

I didn’t know what to do with it.
