「霊獣か. そんな者もこの世界にはいるんだな. 神や亜神とは別のジャンルか」
『そうだ. 霊獣とは、聖獣となった獣がさらに力を得た姿だ. 立場としては亜神と同じ扱いだな』
「そうなのか. さらに上は神獣になるのか？ 神獣は神珠を落とすとか？ ん？ 獣神ガルムも神獣なのか？」
『そうだな. 霊獣がさらに力をつけたものを一般的には神獣と呼んでいる. ガルム様も神獣と呼ばれていたが、上位神まで至って呼ばなくなってしまったな』
There seems to be no doubt that the next step after the spirit animal is the divine animal.
However, Merus says that it is more common to refer to the beast-god Garm as a 'beast-god.
"Seriously? Garum is a beast?"
Luke arrives a little later, with a full belly, and is surprised to learn that the god was originally a beast.
"Well, yes. I heard that Lord Garum was just a beast.
Shea joined in the conversation about the Garum.
Shea doesn't seem to be offended by Luke's childish comment about Garum being a beast.
It is said that a long time ago, a beast owned by a beastman gained power and became a beast god.
This is said to be the story of Garum himself.
It seems that Garum did not suddenly become a god, but went through the process of becoming a holy beast and a spiritual beast before becoming the beast god Garum.
It seems that Garum did not suddenly become a god, but went through a holy beast and a sacred beast. So beasts also become gods when they are worshipped. So it seems that the mediator god is also a beast.
I have heard many times that there is a close connection between the Beast Royal family and the Beast God.
One such story is that the ancestors of the Beast Royal family have beast god blood in their veins.
In a previous life, there was a belief in the oneness of kings and gods, but in this world, children are born between gods and kings.
And the family that was born is the Al-Bahar family.
Therefore, it is said that the beast god Garm is watching over his own descendants, intervening from time to time.
And perhaps the beast-like Formenes, the mediator god, is also a beast.
The last time I saw him, he was sleeping and eating grass in a stable.
And as you know, don't try to get the divine bead. That would be violating the realm of the gods.
As Allen was contemplating the Mediator, he received a warning.
He knew that Allen, who had just tried to get the divine bead, was not afraid of anything.
It seems that the sacred pearl can be obtained not only by shedding tears, but also by killing holy beasts like demon stones.
Like tears and bodily fluids, holy beasts can be created over and over again, but if they are defeated, the holy beast will die and they will no longer be obtainable.
I learned how to do this from Merus after I obtained the Sacred Pearl from the royal house of Culebure.
The holy beast will drop the Holy Pearl.
Holy Beads are dropped by Holy Beasts.
Spirit pearls are dropped by sacred beasts.
Divine Beads are dropped by Divine Beasts.
I see. The strength rankings have been added again.
Allen, who has been searching for strength, recently started to create a strength ranking.
He has been searching for strength, and has recently started to create a strength ranking chart to find out who are the strongest people in this world.
Strength Ranking List
God of Creation, God of Darkness
Top gods (beast gods, fertility gods)
Gods (4 major gods, etc.), spirit gods, divine beasts
Holy beasts, higher-ranked demons.
Holy beasts, high-ranked demons, and royalized merus
There will be differences in power among the same ranks, such as the suitability for fighting, but I'll sort it out after listening to what Merus said.
I heard from Merus that we don't know how powerful the current Demon Lord is.
He also said that ordinary Hexenarchs are weaker than Holy Beasts.
And it seems that high ranking Demon Lords and Holy Beasts are about the same.
When I look at the ranking list like this, I realize that I am still weak.
(Now that I know the sacred bead, it's time to analyze it.
There are some skills and summons that are sealed, but there are some skills that can be analyzed.
Allen went into full analysis mode.
Seeing this, Merus closes his eyes as he is finally freed.
First of all, the grimoire has been expanded to level 8, as usual.
This means that the number of summonses that can be stored has increased.
The number of summons has increased from 80 to 90.
This means that I can now have 10 more A-rank summonses.
Now that Allen's army was sending summonses to each continent, it was better to have even one more holder.
(This feeling is sealed, but the effect is the same as sharing?
Next, let's look at the Binding skill.
The shared skill has been changed to the combined skill.
This reminds me of how Dogora was changed to Extra Mode, with a "true" at the beginning of the skill's name to increase its power.
I feel that the meaning of the words "share" and "combine" are similar.
If the seal is broken, I expect the effect to be an extension of sharing.
Apparently, in this world, skills change and become stronger.
I'll try to use the sealed binding skill consciously.
"The Binding skill is sealed and cannot be used.
Recognize that the combined skill is sealed and restricted, so it remains in the effect of the shared skill.
(The other skill that is not sealed and can be used now is the growth skill. Growth. It's been a long time since I've been able to use a new skill that gains skill experience.
It's been a while since I've had a skill that could save me experience.
(Can you make summoners grow? Anyway, I'll use it on Denka. (You'll have to remove the magic recovery ring to find out how much magic you need.
From the name, it seems that you made it possible to grow summons.
I summon the summoner of Bug H, who I always use to experiment with new summons.
Then I remove the magic recovery ring and use the growth skill.
There was no change in Bug H's summoner.
(Nothing changed. Hmm?
Check the log for no change.
"I used the growth skill. Bug H's summoner is now Growth H.''
(Oh, you're logging. What's growth H? It consumes 2 magic. Is that it? Oh!
I turned the pages of the grimoire to see more changes, and found that a new page had been added.
3 [Magic] 0
0 [Attack power] 2
5 [Speed] 5
Endurance 1+1, Speed 1+1
[Special Skill] Jumping
[Awakening] Form a pack.
(Your status has doubled with 2 plus 2 blessings. Does that mean you're getting more protection?
The protection is double that of the summoner of Bug H.
Thinking that it's simply a skill that increases protection, I try to grow it further.
But again, no new page is created in the grimoire.
So you look at the grimoire and see that a new log has appeared.
"You do not have enough levels in the Growth skill to turn the summoner of Bug H into Growth G.
Apparently, there is a limit to how much you can grow depending on the skill level of your growth skill.
So I'll try to use the Growth Skill on Bug G's summoner.
"You don't have enough levels in the Growth skill to turn Bug G's summoner into Growth G.
This shows that the rank at which you can grow is fixed according to your skill level.
If your skill level is 1, you can only grow to H.
So it seems that you can't make a G-ranked summoner a G-ranked summoner.
I tried to summon another summoner of bug H.
This seems to work as usual.
The second summoner of worm H has grown to rank H.
It seems that there is no limit.
Then I repeated the process of deleting, generating, and growing, and tried to make the growth skill to skill level 2.
Then, I was able to make the summoner of Bug H into Growth G.
7 [Magic] 0
0 [Attack power] 8
Endurance 2+2, Speed 2+2
Special Skill: Jumping
Awakening: Flock together
(Magic power consumption is 5? This time, the summoner's status has increased.
Allen is starting to understand the capabilities of the growth skills.
After about an hour of testing, he raised his Growth Skill to 4, and proceeded to verify that his prediction was correct.
Summary of Growth Skills
Growth G requires a skill level of 2 and 1000 experience.
Growth E requires skill level 4 and 100,000 experience.
The skill level required for Growth S is estimated to be 9, and the required skill experience is 10 billion.
The magic power required to summon a summoner of the same rank is consumed.
Consumes magic power required to summon a summoner of the same rank. - Consumes magic stones required to create a summoner of the same rank.
The number of summons that can be grown can be limited until the quota is reached.
The number of ranks you can grow is determined by your skill level.
The number of summons you can grow is determined by your skill level.
When a summoner grows, its status becomes equivalent to that of a summoner of the same rank.
When a summoner grows, it becomes equivalent to a summoner of the same rank.
(This is amazing. (This is great. You can expect a lot from all the summonses that couldn't be used until now!
Allen is beginning to understand the power of the growth skill.
There are many summons that have stopped summoning when their summoning level goes up.
That's because higher-ranked summons have more status and blessings.
This is why many summons are no longer summoned even if their special skills are useful, in favor of their blessings and status.
By raising the skill level of this growth skill, you can make a summoner of rank B or lower as strong as a summoner of rank A.
This is by far the widest range of tactics.
And since the blessings of a grown summoner are doubled, Allen's status will be increased considerably.
(This will increase the power of self-destruction if you make Kabeo grow up. Hmm, will Merus become even stronger?
There is a summoner of stone E that increases the power of the "self-destruct" skill depending on durability.
Allen stares at Merus as his strategy expands when his growth skill increases.
'What? I'm not going to do anything!
Allen noticed something when he saw Merus.
Merus glared at Allen like a subordinate who was asked to work on a holiday.
"If you grow Merus, you can double his blessings and raise his status to S rank?
I can see more possibilities for Merus in the form of a nirvana statue.
In addition to this, there are still two sealed skills and an S rank summoner.
The growth skills already available had tremendous potential.
The thought of the day when all the seals were lifted went through Allen's mind, and he felt his heart pounding.
