Chapter 131


Translation: Kazuya | Editor: Weasalopes


《There are 2 messages from your friends》

The messages came when I logged in.
It’s from Margrid and Saki.

『The gemstones accessories are completed. I will be at Wind Spirit Village in the morning. 』

Margrid!
I have been waiting!

What about Saki?

『The contents have been confirmed. Let’s measure the size again. There’s no need to worry about the materials. 』

Oh.
This helps a lot.

Oops.
I have to summon Bunraku.
I gave it dried meat, flour and all the remaining vegetables.
I’ll leave cooking to you.
I summon Zangetsu and Obsidian for house-watching.

I cast Grow Plant on the young tree at the back, and headed to the usual place.
I feel good today.
「Oh?」

「Good morning, Keith. What happened? 」

It’s the first thing Fiona, Saki and Margrid asked.
It’s about my job.
Of course they would notice, right?
I was questioned about every detail of it.
It was really tiring.

「Shouldn’t this be the first player class change?」

「Isn’t this already certain?」

「What’s up with his play time?」

Are they complimenting me?
It sure doesn’t feel like it right?

「Well, let’s finish business first. There is also a meeting later.」

Fiona’s directing really helped me out.
Thank you.

「 Let’s deal with the easy one first. Did any of your Monster Summons get bigger?」

「Yeah, I’ll summon it now.」

I summoned Senki.
The girls took a step back when it appears.
The appearance is now fiercer than before, it can’t be helped.

「Hey, Please make sure it doesn’t move, OK?」

「Gau.」

Senki answered.
Its voice is low, but still scary.

While the measurement is going on, I take various items out of my 《Item Box》.
There were several Prison Guard’s Bracelets.
Antman’s Nectar and Wax, and a few Crystal Balls.
2 Iolite gemstones.
And the biggest one.
Crucible of Hell.
The ground shook when I took it out of the 《Item Box》.
Dangerous.
My toes were almost crushed.

Oh, I almost forgot.
I take out 2 Strange Rock Salt (Holy) and gave it to Fiona.
I have extras, but I’ll keep it for myself.

「Oh, the quest is complete. Thanks.」

《You have completed a personal quest! 》
《You have gained 2 Bonus Points. You currently have a total of 21 Bonus Points!》

「Somewhat bonus points are also gained.」

「Yes. It’s a joint quest from me and Mio, but only one point is reduced from me.」

「What’s the standard for it?」

「It seems to be different for each quest.」

「There’s a rumor that says bonus points tends to be higher for lower racial levels taking the same quest, isn’t it?」

Margrid added.
Hm.
Certainly, a lot of bonus points are earned when I open an area portal that I struggle a lot with.
Is this the reason?

「And also this crucible, what is this for?」

「Can’t this be used for something? Like cooking? 」

「What about the blacksmiths? Can it be used as an alternative for a blast furnace?」

No, I don’t think it should be used for that.
Isn’t it subtle?
I am afraid the weapons and armors made will be cursed.

「I’m planning to pay off today, I wonder if I can separate this?」

「It can be provisional.」

「It may be worth more than it should. It’s my intuition though. I’ll ask the blacksmiths for their opinion.」

Intuition…
Hm.
I leave it to Fiona, I guess.

「The measurement is done.」

Good work Saki.
You can see that her face is tensed up.
She must have been very scared, I understand.

「Since there is a huge difference in size, is it OK if the structure is different?」

「I’ll leave it to you.」

「OK. I will add Brown Bear skin and it will look like an overall. I replace the helmet with Tiger skin.」

Oh.
Is it the skin of the Sturmtiger?
How will it look?

「There’s something here as well.」

Margrid arrange items one after another on the desk.
Quite a number of Silver Chain.
And cut gems that are put into the base.
Dazzling just looking at it.

So, shall we start with the simple ones?
Please.

The first was Amber.
I try and reinforce it.

【Magic Item】Amber Grade C+ Rarity 3 Weight 0+
Gem from a semi- fossilized wood resin.
Only yellowish brown transparent objects are treated as gems.
The hardness is low as a gem, and is rarely used in magic items.
[Custom] Reinforce with Thunder spell 『Paralysis』.
Trigger by pointing on target.
Break after use.

I tried reinforcing the other Ambers, but all of them only had level 1 spells residing in them.
「Hm.」

「It feels subtle considering the price of Amber.」

I agree.
But to not have to cast spells, I feel it’s kind of worth it.

I reinforce the other gems as well.
Aquamarine, 2 Tsavorite and Morganite.
Iolite, Blue Spinel, Sardonyx and Prehnite.
Quite a lot.

「The main will be Aquamarine.」

The Aquamarine has changed into quite a strange shape.
It was the shape of a water droplet before, now it’s polyhedron cut.
It’s blue like water and transparent.

【Material】Aquamarine Grade B Rarity 4 Weight 0+
Blue beryl. Also called blue jade or aquamarine.
It’s high in rarity among the beryls.
The gem means Sea water and is popular as an amulet.
[Custom] Engraved with the words『Water Jade』.

Is the pattern related to the Aquamarine?

「Can you take off your silver necklace? I will combine them.」

Margrid say that, and you can see how excited she is from her face.
I’ll leave it to her.

I took off my armor, and pass her the necklace.
It seems she has already decided the combination.

Aquamarine at the center.
Tsavorite on both sides.
And so on with Blue Spinel and Iolite.
7 gemstones are connected on one necklace.
Nicely done.
I use 【Appraise】on it.

【Equipment: Necklace】Silver Necklace + Grade C+ Rarity 3
M.AP +13 Weight 1 Durability 120
A necklace made with a silver ball chain. Its silver chain is quite durable.
Reinforced with magic.

※Recovery spell effects increase, decrease MP consumption,
Increases resistance to abnormal status effects, spell range increase.

Wow.
Aren’t these medium effects?
I’ll wear it with gratitude.

「Are these necklaces for the Monster Summons?」

「Yes, the base structure is the same only the size are different.」

I see.
I use 【Appraise】on one.

【Equipment: Necklace】Silver Necklace Grade C+ Rarity 3
M.AP +4 Weight 0+ Durability 90
A necklace made with a silver ball chain. Its silver chain is quite durable.

Hm.
It feels good since its lightweight.

There are still 5 gems remaining.

【Material】Prehnite Grade C+ Rarity 2 Weight 0+
Muscat green gem. AKA prehnite.
Semi-transparent and slightly glossy. It is said to have the power to see the truth.
[Custom] Engraved with the words 『Grid』.

It has been determined that when you combine Blue Spinel the impact to resistance to abnormal status effects is positive.
Tsavorite should reduce MP consumption.

What about the other three?
I’ll try it now.

What if I combine it with Sardonyx?

※Slightly reduces MP consumption.

I also check Blue Spinel and Tsavorite just in case.
Alright.

Tsavorite and Morganite have a positive effect on M.AP
These 2 are good for Ninetails and Jean.
What about Sardonyx, Prehnite and Blue Spinel?
I’ll it to Helix, Tigris and Volff.

I recall Senki, and equip them on the respective summons.
Now all that’s left is Senki’s equipment.

「Here’s 2 Iolite gems. Can I leave it to you? 」

「Yeah sure.」

I also pass about 8 Magic Stones.
Alright.
This should be all.

Is what I thought, but Margrid seems to have something else.
On her wrist is the Prison Guard’s Bracelet.

「I have some understanding of the use of this.」

「Is it a Prison Guard’s Bracelet? 」

「It’s no longer a Prison Guard’s Bracelet now.」

「Huh? 」

Impossible, is what I thought, so I use 【Appraise】 on it.
When you look closely, the surface is engraved with a pattern like a cloud.

【Equipment: Bracelet】Bracelet of Torture Grade C+ Rarity 3
AP +1 Weight 0+ Durability 150.
Magic imbued item No Attribute
Prison Guard’s Bracelet. Made from a metal with a characteristic similar to copper and silver.
It is said that the fist in which the bracelet is equipped have the power to torture the dead.

What the hell.

「Rather than fist, it seems to strengthen striking attacks isn’t it? I want to test it but it doesn’t seem to have any effect on the rod.」

「You have tried? 」

「I can’t hand over something that’s bad.」

「But there’s still the processing fee.」

「It ok, I’ll pay for it. 」

Hm.
Ok.

I receive the bracelet, and equipped it on my right wrist.
I should test it somewhere.

「Than can you also process the others as well? 」

I gaze at the other Prison Guard’s Bracelets.
There were 5.
I also got 2 at the same time with Gozu and Mezu, and have accumulated quite a bit.

「A bracelet and 2 leg rings? Am I right? 」

「I would like to sell the extra ones. 」

「Then I’ll take 2. I’m going to sell to players who fight using grappling. 」

「Ah, please calculate the price. 」

And I receive quite an amount of money from Fiona once again.
Amazing.
I don’t really buy things but all the items I collect will pile up.
And there hasn’t been any item creation quest lately.
I also haven’t received the ones for the Crucible of Hell.

Oh, I still haven’t have breakfast.
I left the place and went back to Bunraku.
Today’s menu is Ravioli.
It is nicely made.

And it seems the meeting had already begun when I am having breakfast.
More than half of the meeting is concluded when I finish cleaning up after breakfast with Bunraku.
I’ll just ask Adele and Irina for the important matters.

And the topic is?
The Guide Team report about the tunnel inside the Southern cave and the Antman nest in the north.
Iron Ore is in the back of the tunnel, and there is good clay located on the floor were the Antman’s eggs are.
I know about the Iron Ore.
But clay, huh.
Production Team has also come out with various results.
Costume related topic is hot right now.
It’s even more now because of the new materials introduced by the Capture Team.
It seems livestock have also increased the availability of wool.
There is also a plan to introduce dairy cows, and the village atmosphere has changed quite a lot.
In a good way of course, but.

After the meeting, matches are held in two areas of the hall.
This is also very lively.
I have a chat with Adele and Irina while watching the matches, and I was of course asked a lot of things as usual.

「Did anything change when you class change? 」

「The stats have risen quite a bit, so I did become stronger I think. 」

「The difference won’t be clear because of the way Keith fights! 」

That’s harsh.
Well I have no excuse thought.

「We have also been focused on leveling, so we should be able to class change soon too. 」

「I am so excited! 」

And.
At the feet of Irina, it’s her snake Toggle.
It’s level 7.
And beside Adele is her Tiger Mii-chan.
Also level 7.
No doubt they will class change first before the girls.

I am also looking forward to it.

I went to Hannes place, finish casting Grow Plant, and receive some stuff and headed west.
I am aiming for the west today.

The meat is calling to me.

The journey went smoothly.
The departure was delayed but there was no problem.
Since Zangetsu is here.
And I go past areas that seem to be players’ hunting spots.

The weather is fine today as well.
The wind was also comfortable.

It is good to be able to feel comfortable just by traveling.

I killed a Raptor before going to the W3 map and got 2 Ancient Stones.
Raptor is no longer at a level that can satisfy me.
Today’s summon are Volff, Zangetsu, Helix, Obsidian and Ninetails.
If I think about it, only Ninetails has not yet class change.
Well, it is already strong without it.

And I enter the W3 map.
Ok, let’s get started.

First, I hunted a Centaur.
I shoot it with my bow while Ninetails confuses it.
That’s it.
I can also use the Capture Rod of Torture as a substitute for the arrow.
This is too easy.
Like always I extract the Obsidian Stone from its weapon.
I’m happy with the result, but isn’t it too shabby?

So, I am expecting a lot from you Fighting Bulls.
First I’ll train a small number and intercept it with a wall spell.

Too little?
No, there is almost 100 of it altogether.
Looking back, you can see red markers on top of red markers.
Oh well.

I prepare for a continuous cast of wall spells.
The preparation for an interception?
Perfect.

「Fire Wall!」

「Magma Screen!」

After the wall is made I hold onto Zangetsu’s bridle, and turn around.
And Volff starts attacking.
Helix and Obsidian that were in the air also starts attacking.

Light was emitted from Ninetails.
It was like an AOE spell.
About 30% of its MP drops in an instance.
It’s to give me time to cast my next spell.
Damage was taken, but more importantly it caused the Fighting Bulls to fall into a confused state.

I strike the Fighting bulls that were near me with the Capture Rod of Torture while preparing for my next spell.

「Thunder Shower!」

The target is to not only do damage, but also to paralyze the Fighting Bulls.
About half of the Fighting Bulls’ HP was gone.
That’s quite a big amount.
Those still alive are on the verge of dying, confused, or paralyzed.
And they start to fall one by one.

Meat.
Give me all your meat.

The last one starts uttering noise as if it is cursed.
After killing it, it’s going to be hard collecting all the drops.

But sirloin did not drop.
Top blade, flank, bottom flat and round steak did drop though.
The parts like liver and tongue are also good.
Let’s have check meat for lunch.

《【Appraise】Level Up!》

It must have level up when I am collecting the drops.
I use 【Appraise】before throwing the items into the《Item Box》.
The number is not a laughing matter.
It takes longer to collect the drop than hunting for it.
Well, it can’t be helped.

I lure the next train and use the same pattern as before.
I am convinced after doing this.

We have really grown stronger.

Not only the wall spells have strengthened, the AOE spells have also strengthened.
Power and range is better and casting speed is shorter than before.

There was no problem even when Adele and Irina is not around.
Compared to last time my racial level now is 3 levels higher.
And the number of summons has also increased.
The increase in strength is shown in the result of the hunt.

《【Horsemanship】Level Up!》
《Summon Monster 『Zangetsu』 Level Up!》
《Please add 1 point to a desired stat.》

It’s been awhile since Zangetsu level up.
I used it to travel every day, but not in combat.

Its VIT has risen.
I add one point into STR.

Summon Monster Zangetsu White Horse Lv1→ Lv2 (↑1)
DEX 7
AGI 25
INT 7
STR 25 (↑1)
VIT 25 (↑1)
SPI 7
Skill
Trample Dash Endurance Run Wild Gallop Stampede Kick Rider Recovery [Slight] Magic Resistance [Slight]

Perfect.
The line up of the numbers is perfect.
So beautiful.
It’s a waste if it gets messed up next time.

Now.
What’s the result of the drops?
Sirloin was drop.
And there are 2.
I must be grinning right now.
Ribs are also drop.
Must be the effects of 【Disassembly】.
Good job.

Although it took some time to collect the drops, I have advanced closer to the Spring of Mist.
There is still time before lunch.
Should I have lunch early? I thought.

And an attack came.
It was Lions lurking in the bush.

Steppe Lion (Female)
Monster Enemy Target Active
Details: Ground Attribute Earth

There are 8 of them.
All of them are active.
It’s my fighting against these guys.
Let’s go carefully.

The first attack was from Ninetails.
It’s mounted on Zangetsu as always, but still provides good support.
The Lions start to roll when a huge mass of light hit them.
They are in a state of confusion.

Helix and Obsidian starts attacking them from the air.
I charge in to attack on Zangetsu and Volff on the side.

「Gravity Bullet! 」

I cast the spell on an undamaged individual and blow it away.
And strike with my Capture Rod of Torture on the other hand.
The pride of 8 lost control and was confused.

Volff was fighting using speed.
The attacks clearly hit, but there doesn’t seem to be much damage?
But there are also times it deals a lot of damage.
It bites at the neck and let go.
The Lions have an upper hand on their power.

I strike and kill them while they are still confused.
But this took quite a bit of time.
More than the Fighting Bulls.
Although in terms of toughness Fighting Bull is higher, but the Lions have better fighting ability.
Their speed is fast, and all their attacks seems to hit.
It would be dangerous if they all attack at once.
No doubt.

But as their number decrease the threat also decrease.
Kill them one by one.
It’s surprisingly easy to kill them one at a time.
So what’s the drop?
2 fangs and 4 claws.

【Material】Steppe Lion Claw Raw Material Grade C Rarity 4 Weight 0+
Steppe Lion’s Claw. Sharp and very strong.

【Material】Steppe Lion Fang Raw Material Grade C+ Rarity 4 Weight 0+
Steppe Lion’s fang. A thing that can break meat apart easily.

I have seen this description somewhere before.
It can be made into a good weapon like Sturmtiger.
Should I go to Spring of Mist and make it?
