Chapter 341: Enhancement Methods [End]

“Next!” (Naofumi)

Is Taniko…
When I look over at Taniko, she turns her head away and shows an expression indicating that she doesn’t want to speak.
I’ll bet it’s because she didn’t want to be a Hero.
What’s more, she’s that Tact’s successor.

“Say something.” (Naofumi)
“Kyua?” (Gaelion)
“Um, according to the Help screen, it’s Growth Elevation.” (Taniko)
“You mean something like the Slave User Series and the Monster User Series?” (Naofumi)
“Yes. You can set a specific parameter you want to improve when leveling, it seems. Also, it isn’t limited to its user. As long as you have their permission, its effect extends to your comrades as well.” (Taniko)
“Hmm…” (Naofumi)

That’s a useful one.
It further increases the stats gained during a level up.

“But when you activate it, your level will drop proportional to the extent of the growth elevations you…

Out of school–I am now a NEET.

Chapter 340: Enhancement Methods [Middle]

“Next, let’s continue with large weapons. Midori, you’re up.” (Naofumi)
“Ah, yes. The Axe’s enhancement is… let’s see, it seems to be Body Strengthening.” (Midori)
“What’s that?” (Naofumi)
“According to the Help, besides weapon bonuses, you can distribute points freely to your own status.” (Midori)

So it has nothing to do with weapons. The Vassal Enhancement methods sure are broad.
I confirm my Status with magic.
There it is… around the stats portion.
More specifically, around Defense, Agility, and Magic, an arrow mark appeared.
When I slowly concentrate on it, a window pops up.

‘Will you distribute Stat Points?’

I have quite a bit of points saved up. It’s like those old games where you can distribute stats to your liking.
This is… can’t I increase my attack so that I can fling myself at enemies!?
Thinking that…

Chapter 339: Enhancement Methods (Beginning)

I get complaints that my editors don’t get enough work, but when I need editing they’re not online and so I end up doing it myself… *sigh*
I suppose I could always wait but I guess you readers would prefer to get releases earlier (I know I would)
Enhancement Methods (Beginning)
“There’s trouble! The monsters throughout the world have increased in activity, and there’s also been a sudden rise in levels! The villages and towns in the country are in trouble!” (Soldier)
An injured soldier came into the throne room and reported frantically.
We’re still in the meeting. Ren and the others have performed a Level Reset at the hourglass and admitted Tact into the country’s jail so he couldn’t escape for the time being, and then joined us.
They couldn’t hide their astonishment about Glass joining us or the appearance of new land.
The conversation with Glass still continues. It was at that point.
“S-speaking of which.” (Soldier)
Gaelion had said the monsters would have an increase in activity after each wave.
So the thing about the wave conditions becoming more severe was pointing to this sort of situation!
“What is it?” (Glass)
“According to the adventurers who just managed to crush them, just by defeating them…. they managed to acquire more experience than they did on Calmira Island.” (Soldier)
Ha… An ordinary adventurer would go no further than 40 at best, and even soldiers could only reach 100.
That aside, the citizens might be in danger.
“Release the Hourglass of the Dragon’s Era. Let those who want to Class Up freely do so!” (Naofumi)
We don’t have the time to choose our personnel.
Rather, if we don’t raise the levels of all the citizens, they’ll die.
At the lowest, 100 is the baseline.
Well, we have Gaelion here so we should manage the country before that.
How much time would be needed to re-establish the Seven Stars is the issue, but more than that, we first need to measure how much of Glass’s world has assimilated.
Starting with the after-effects of the battle with Faubley, we’ll be pressed to deal with the waves.
“What should we do about the waves throughout the world?” (Naofumi)
“Kue.” (Fitoria)
Fitoria shrinks her carriage.
And then opens the carriage’s doors for us.
Various scenes were reflected there.
It’s a tool I’ve seen before somewhere. Oi. [T/N: “Don’t rip off a certain robotic cat!” (Naofumi)]
“Er, Fitoria-sama said the Vassal’s carriage has the ability to transport and warp, so it can be used to deal with the waves throughout the world.” (Midori)
“….How convenient.” (Naofumi)
I won’t say we should have done that from the start.
This is probably one of the abilities of the Vassal of the Carriage.
Is it a reduction of the Portal Skill’s range expansion and transfer scope….?
“How long until the next wave?” (Naofumi)
“About five days.”
…There are less days than I thought.
However, we have things to do until then.
“…. Instruct the Allied Forces and the troops throughout the world to try raise at least one level before the time limit so they don’t die and to protect the people of their country.” (Trash)
Trash gave instructions to the soldier.
What we need to do concerns the one calling himself God, but in order to stop letting him do as he pleases we must be aware about how fast the waves will descend.
“Glass. What will happen with the next wave?” (Naofumi)
“The monsters appearing because of the wave are the other world’s screams when the worlds fuse or so I’ve been told. The monsters’ strength won’t lessen but as long as this world’s Saint weapons and Vassals exist, we can buy time.” (Glass)
“Your world is….” (Naofumi)
Even now, the Four Saints and Vassals of Glass’s world were in a damaged state.
“I am…. past being resolved. For example, another world might assimilate while we’re trying to hinder the assimilation with this world…. We might be destroyed by some opposing world in the end. I will…. take advantage of the wave and return though.” (Glass)
“You’re not going to stay in this world and fight?” (Naofumi)
“Because I am a Vassal of that world. Until I accomplish my mission at least.” (Glass)
“I see… by the way, it’s been on my mind but are you going to continually repeat these fights with no end?” (Naofumi)
Honestly, I can’t see any sign of salvation for them.
The spirit of the shield sounded like there was an end and that there was salvation.
Of course, I only managed to get it to tell me the outline of what the waves were but since there’s a reward, there should be an end.
“I also don’t know the details of that. Just that the spirit of the fan told me. That an end will come eventually for this fight as well. And that even the being pretending to be God has limits.” (Glass)
Until the enemy runs out of patience, we’ll continue to hinder the assimilation.
No…. Perhaps just like in a siege, the waves might be a fight to wait for allies against an assaulting enemy.
Like this, we solidified the plan of action against the waves.
Next is the issue regarding the Saint Weapons and Vassal weapons.
If we don’t power up all the Saint Weapons and Vassal Weapons, we probably won’t be able to overcome the waves.
“Can Glass’s fan and our weapons be connected through enhancement methods?” (Naofumi)
“…It seems like it’s impossible. They’re incompatible in regards to enhancing.” (Glass)
“I see. Then Raphtalia, Firo, the other heroes newly chosen by the vassal weapons, and Fitoria. Check each of your enhancement methods in the help manual and explain them.” (Naofumi)
“Y-yes!” (Raphtalia)
Beginning with Raphtalia, they each check their own status and help manuals.
Our weapons had mutual compatibility to convert those processes and operate them.
With this the Four Saints should unlock the parts released by the Vassal weapons.
There’s quite a lot but if we don’t listen and test them all we won’t become stronger so it can’t be helped.
“I suppose I’m first.” (Raphtalia)
Raphtalia raises her hand and explains.
“Er, the mallet’s enhancement method written in the manual is weapon synthesis.” (Raphtalia)
“Weapon synthesis….” (Naofumi)
Somehow it has something I can imagine.
How many will be able to apply this?
“Apparently it’s about conferring the weapon tree’s most characteristic special ability onto other weapons.” (Raphtalia)
For the time being, let’s go ahead with the enhancement and try experimenting on the Spirit Turtle Shell Shield.
Spirit Turtle Shell Shield (Awakened) +8 70/70   SR   Blessed (Compassion)
Ability released…. Equipment bonus, Skills [S Float Shield][Reflect Shield]
Special Abilities: Gravity Field, C Soul Recovery, C Magic Snatch, C Gravity Shot, Vitality Up, Magic Defence (Large), Lightning Resistance, SP Drain Nullification
Growing Ability
Proficiency 100
Item Enchant Lv8: Defence 10% Up
Dragon Spirit: Defence 50, Fire resistance up
Status Enchant: Magic Power 30+
○ ○ ○ ○ ○
When I checked, ○ icons appeared at the bottom.
Incidentally, what the Blessed series’ Shield of compassion does to the other shields…. seems to be in a different category to Enchant or Synthesis.
The Blessed Series can’t enhance but it assimilates with the normal shield and manifests its abilities.
No matter how weak of a shield it may be, it’s fine to think of it being endowed with a part of the Shield of Compassion.
For the time being, let’s try endowing this shield with the Soul Eater Shield.
Ah, the Shield of Compassion has the special ability Spell Support but that has a weaker ability than Trash’s cane.
But I’ve gone off topic.
Synthesize the Soul Eater Shield!
Spirit Turtle Shell Shield (Awakened) +10 70/70   SR+   Blessed (Compassion)
Ability released…. Equipment bonus, Skills [S Float Shield][Reflect Shield]
Special Abilities: Gravity Field, C Soul Recovery, C Magic Snatch, C Gravity Shot, Vitality Up, Magic Defence (Large), Lightning Resistance, SP Drain Nullification
Growing Ability
Proficiency 100
Item Enchant Lv8: Defence 10% Up
Dragon Spirit: Defence 50, Fire resistance up
Status Enchant: Magic Power 30+
Soul Eater ○ ○ ○ ○
So it also increases the Enhancement value and Rarity?
Ah, Soul Eater Shield’s Enhancement value and Rarity have been reset….
As a test, I tried synthesizing other shields which had been enhanced but whether it will increase or not depended on the weapon’s strength, and it seemed there were limits.
So it won’t go that well….
Or I should say, with this my skill, Reflect Shield, seems like it’s turned into a dead skill but….
Well, it can still be put to practical use so it’s fine?
“Naofumi.” (Ren)
“What?” (Naofumi)
Ren enhanced his weapon many times and then came to address me.
“It seems there’s a limit to how many times the material weapons can be synthesized like this.” (Ren)
“Is that so?” (Naofumi)
“Yeah, after using it three times the weapon book entry turned dark. It’s also impossible to alter it.” (Ren)
“….Is it alright?” (Naofumi)
“It seems I can relight it again as long as I have the materials so there’s no problem. Also, I unlocked a sword because of this.” (Ren)
“Well, I guess it was possible.” (Naofumi)
An image of entrusting a fully enhanced blade to a blacksmith and receiving a famous roguelike weapon comes to mind.
Or rather, did synthesizing to a specific rule turn it into the strongest sword?
“So it’s one week of synthesis as I expected?” (Naofumi?)
“What are you talking about?” (Ren)
“No, it was on Monday or Tuesday..” (Naofumi?)
“The sword I experimented on was the one that appeared when I combined the Dragon slaying sword.” (Ren)
“Ah, that one?” (Naofumi)
Ren showed the transformed sword he was experimenting with.
Oh, there was an incredibly pretty ornament added on the sword. A dragon scale glittered, it looked cool.
“The disappointing part is its basic attack power is lower than the spirit turtle sword and my fighting partner, Gaelion seems to hate it.” (Ren)
Taniko glared with all her heart. She’s angry since he possessed the sword that killed her father, huh.
“You might be able to use it after raising its level so isn’t it fine?” (Naofumi)
“Well.…I guess.” (Ren)
Let’s not go into why he synthesized together only swords that were effective against dragons.
I see, so the mallet was a vassal weapon with a smithing aspect.
…..I wonder why it chose Raphtalia?
“What’s wrong?” (Raphtalia)
A mallet for Raphtalia…. A hammer, huh.
I wonder if Raphtalia would get angry and change it to a 1 tonne hammer and hit me with it if I went on a date with the villagers.
“You’re thinking about something strange again.” (Raphtalia)
“Don’t hit me with that.” (Naofumi)
“Why must I be hitting Naofumi-sama with the mallet! Or will you be doing something that I would hit you for?” (Raphtalia)
“I thought it might be possible in the middle of doing various things with the villagers or Melty.” (Naofumi)
“I won’t! Haven’t we spoken properly about this!” (Raphtalia)
“Well, I suppose so.” (Naofumi)
I’m thinking too much, huh.
Or I should say, it probably fits Raphtalia perfectly, her having a straight-man disposition.
Let’s have Imia’s Uncle make the PikoPiko Hammer and let her copy it. [T/N: Squeaky Hammer]
Then… it probably won’t hurt, and I’ll be careful to never let her turn it into a 1 tonne hammer.
“You’re still thinking something….” (Raphtalia)
Raphtalia completely suspects me.
“Now then~ let’s move on!” (Naofumi)
It would be bothersome in various ways so I diverted the conversation.

My school ends tomorrow. So why am I procrastinating so hard, you ask? Because I have a test tomorrow, of course.

Chapter 338: One who Claimed to be God

“There’s a troublesome guy like that? Who could it be?” (Fohl)

Fohl bears a repulsed expression on his face that seems to stem from the depths of his heart.
Troublesome… is it?
Otherworlders in themselves are quite a troublesome existence too.
They’re arbitrarily summoned, so they can’t complain, and they end up in situations like ours.
Before coming to this world, I did look up to epic otherworldly fight sequences, so it’s a strange feeling.
(TL: Because this world reveres otherworldly heroes)

Reincarnation, the existence you meet before you’re born anew- that is…

“It’s God.” (Naofumi)
“God… I see, so there are stories like that in Naofumi-san’s world. There was an NPC like that in a few games, but I was unable…

“And? Am I right in assuming your weapon is that carriage?” (Naofumi)
“Kue.” (Fitoria)

Fitoria firmly nods.

“Last we met, you were able to detach it, right?” (Naofumi)
“Kue, kue.” (Fitoria)
“If you use your weapon long enough, you’ll eventually be able to take it off temporarily, she says.” (Midori)

How envious.
I want to learn to do that too, but perhaps the Vassals and Heroes work on different systems…
The Shield did go into dormancy for a while, but it would be nice if I could do that consciously.

“Did you copy the Tank-type body Rat made? Is that also counted as a carriage?” (Naofumi)
“Kue.” (Fitoria)
“Yes. I got the feeling that could be copied, so I went and made use of it, apparently.” (Midori)
“I see.” (Naofumi)

I don’t know if there’s a gap in power output, but it’s amazing that she could…

Chapter 336: The Eighth

“The land…? What’s happening?”

I definitely told him about it before, but Itsuki raises his voice.
But even if he did know, there was no way he could remain silent.
The Time Icon in our vision reverts to the normal hourglass… Zeltburg’s hourglass, but now’s not the time to think about that.

“Quite spacing out! Right now… we have to concentrate on the monsters the wave left behind. What do you think would happen if monsters of that level were let loose on the populace!?” (Naofumi)
“Y-yes!” (Itsuki)

Including Itsuki, everybody was thinking about it.
It was… the expanse of unknown land stretching out before us.
Because the wave had died down, no new monsters were spawning, but it left quite a severe mark behind.

“Rebuild the formation, and kill as many monsters as you can! Keep the casualties to a minimum! Understand!?” (Naofumi)

My voice…

Now time for a survey. It’s been a while, but I’m still getting flooded with Angry comments about Witch’s punishment. Some think it wasn’t enough, some say it was too much, others say that its concept was a mistake in its entirety. Now when answering this, please remember that they are not in our own world governed by ‘just’ law, and that the other responders to this survey come from all around our own world. They have been raised under different beliefs and ideologies than you.

“Just what the hell is happening!?” (Naofumi)

I ask Itsuki once more.

“Report the situation!” (Naofumi)
“Understood!” (Itsuki)

In the face of the raging wave monster, I deploy Meteor Shield X, and protect the villagers.
There, Itsuki raises his voice, and begins his report.

Next to him, Rishia throws her weapon to take out the monsters outside the barrier.

Chapter 334: Two Thirds

“Now then, with this, we’ve pretty much finished cleaning up his forces. Go shoot some light magic.” (Naofumi)

As per Trash’s order, I give the command. Sadina raises her harpoon into the sky, and chants magic.
Well, the Cane should have flown to the man, so he should already know the conclusion.

“Hmm? Wha-”

When I look towards the battlefield, I find myself at a loss for words.
It’s fine that smoke’s rising from the castle town.
I mean, the fires seem to have subsided greatly.

The problem is the area close to the fortress.
The remnants of about half the Faublian army come running… seemingly after suffering heavy damage.

“Naofumi.” (Ren)

Ren points to the battlefield.
At that moment, something glowed, and a beam of light shot through the Faublian army.

“Do you know what’s happening?” (Ren)
“… Probably.” (Naofumi)

It was fired from Melromark’s…

What a calming number. My school ends next week, so perhaps translation speed will pick up then… or not.

Chapter 333: The Hero of the Shield Commands

“I… haven’t lost yet!” (Tact)

Tact staggers to his feet as he directs his hostility towards us.
And the area begins to fill with a black miasma.
Is he going to use a Curse Series?
Well, I did kill his women out of revenge.
It’s not strange for him to awaken a curse or two.

“I’ll never forgive… you all! Eri, Nellisen, Shatte, Reldia, you killed them all! I, the strongest Hero… will definitely kill you!” (Tact)

Tact turns his eyes to Ren.
It appears that he believes that he will have a chance if he steals the Legendary Sword.
How nice.

For him to be able to stand after all of our beatings, is it the power of the Seven Stars?

“Hmm… now my anger is a little… no, it hasn’t cleared at all.” (Naofumi)

I kick the fallen Tact as I spit out these words.

“Exactly. I think we should just kill him already.” (Fohl)
“Don’t be that way. This man needs to face greater despair. For the crime of killing Atlas, the Queen and my villagers, this isn’t nearly enough.” (Naofumi)
“… Understood, Aniki.”

Now then, I look around.
I wonder how Raphtalia and the others are faring.
First, Raphtalia is… before I can turn my eyes to her, lightning surges, and I turn my attention to that.

“Oy, wait. This onee-san isn’t satisfied at all, yet…” (Sadina)
