368-336 Into the rocky mountains (7)

 Haruka's words may not have been a flag, but it was a few days later that golems that could not be killed by a single blow from the Impact Hammer began to appear.

 The type of golem hadn't changed, but the reason why I still couldn't kill it was probably because it was getting bigger.

 The passageway, which became wider as they descended, widened from the original width of two people walking side by side to a sufficient fighting space.

 The size of the golems continued to grow as well, ...... and the first difficult enemy was the Stone Golem.

 It was almost twice as tall as Toya, and its torso and arms were much thicker, making it very different from the previous enemies.

 The Stone Golem was twice as tall as Toya, and its body and arms were much thicker than Toya's. Perhaps because it was bigger and heavier, it moved a little slower, but on the other hand, the power of each blow was much greater.

 Not to mention the weight of the footsteps that echoed with every movement.

 If he were to be crushed, he would probably not survive, and even if his arm were to be grazed, it would be very dangerous.

 Toya dodged the arm and struck a blow to the torso, but perhaps the thickness of the torso had an effect, the shock wave did not penetrate to the magic stone, and it was moving without any problem at all.

 No, I can't say 'no' at all.

 The strength of the stone itself has not increased, because the part that Toya struck is cracked and chipped.

"Toya! Aim for the center of the body, just above the magic stone!
Aah! Copy that!

 I'm not sure what to make of this.
 The corpse (?) after it was killed was properly analyzed and its structure determined. I'm not sure what to make of it.

 It was only at the beginning that he examined it in detail, but even then he understood where the magic stone was and how it was broken, so Toya knew where it was.

 When he heard Haruka's words, Toya immediately understood and swung the impact hammer at the location.

 A dull thud sounded.

 I'm not sure if you've heard of this, but I'm sure you have.

The golem's demon stone has been destroyed. ......

 The golem's magic stone is located in the center of the golem's body, slightly closer to its back.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for and how to get it.

 Toya is striking from the front this time, so if he were to strike from the back, he would be able to deal with a larger body.

 But not yet, anyway.

It's getting a little dangerous, isn't it? If you aim properly, you can still kill it. ......

 I'm not sure what to make of it.

I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure you'll be fine.

I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that we're not contributing to the damage.

No, it's easier for me to fight if you just draw my attention.

 Tohya said, but when multiple golems appear, our role is to completely buy time until Tohya arrives.

 I've been trying to break them down by targeting their joints, but it's almost impossible with stone golems the size of Toya, but not with iron golems or golems the size of the one I just killed.

 No, you might be able to get away with it if you spend an hour or so grinding away, but it's a bit of a problem that it takes that long to kill a normal mob, let alone a boss fight.

 In other words, it's out of the appropriate level.

...... Should I go back and spend a little more money to get a specialized weapon?
In the event you're not sure what you're looking for, you'll be able to find it on the web.

 I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do that," he said.

I'm not sure about that. I'm sure you'll be able to figure out the best way to use it.

You may be able to get by with a longer handle and a counterweight, but you'll need a lot of training.

That's already not a war hammer.

Yeah. It's more like a club.

 A war hammer is very difficult to handle.

 If you want to attack with just one blow, or two or three, you will need a lot of training and strength.

 The only reason we can attack at all is because we are slow-moving golems.

If you want to make up for the damage, you might want to use a club. ...... Oh, by the way, there was a milk cutter in Japan too.

"What's that?

 I'm not sure where I heard that.
 I think I've heard of it somewhere, but I can't picture it at all.

If it's easy for you to understand, it's ...... a flail with a long pattern?
Okay, I get it.

 So it's a weapon with a chain and a weight attached to the end of a stick.

 The flail has a longer handle than the current flail, so the centrifugal force will increase the power, but on the other hand, it has the disadvantage that it is difficult to attack quickly.

 In the event that you have a lot of time and energy, you may be able to get a lot more out of it.

The advantage of the club is that the impact of the attack does not bounce back, right? If you hit an Iron Golem with a war hammer, your hand will go numb.

Yes. The shattering stone golem is still fine, but ...... it hurts my hands a bit.

 Mary nodded in agreement, raising her eyebrows and clasping her hands together.
 After Toya, Mary is the second person who uses the war hammer.
 Maybe I should make her some shock-absorbing gloves or something.
 But how do other adventurers kill golems?
 Golems in this world aren't so convenient that you can kill them just by shaving off one letter. .......

I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do that, but I'm sure I'll be able to do it.

"Magic ....... What do you think, Nao?

In the event that you've got a hard enemy, you've practiced the Explosion for a while. ...... If the golem explodes, aren't we in danger?

 I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out.

 It would be a disaster if I blew it up badly and the stone fragments scattered around.

"How about ...... only Nao goes behind you and blows up your back?
That way, the front side might not be damaged, but what about me?
I can take it!
Don't be absurd. You're not like Toya, I am!

 I'm not like Toya!
 I'm not even carrying a small shield, if I do that, I'm sure to get hurt.

In the event that you've got a lot of money, you're going to need to be able to pay for it.

If you shoot it to death, you might be able to get away with it. I think it's pretty tough.

 I mean, it's probably impossible .......
 The next time you kill an Iron Golem, you can try experimenting with its corpse.

If you're using magic to deal with it, I think it's better to use pitfalls to restrict its movement and then beat it up with everyone.

I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you.

I guess that's a good idea. If we push too hard and damage our allies, we'll end up in the wrong place.

 There is also the "Plane Shift" as an alternative, but I would avoid using this magic in the middle of a battle unless it is very important.

 It takes a long time to activate, and if the coordinates are not set correctly and you cut your allies into a circle,......, it would be seriously unfashionable.

 Even if there is no mistake in the spell, you may trip and fall, or be hit by an enemy attack, or some other accident may bring your allies into the setting range.

I'm sure you'll be able to figure out how to do it. My cheat weapon is still effective, and if I target the location of the magic stone from the back, I can deal with enemies that are a bit more powerful.

"Yeah. The rocks we're finding are getting a little big.

Yeah, that's true. Most of them I don't know what they are, or even if they're really jewels.

 Yuki was right, as we descended, the size of the "stones" from the treasure chests gradually increased.

 Of course, the size of the stone does not necessarily mean that it is of high value, but it is inevitable to have a sense of anticipation.

Hmmm, I think that emotion might lead to an error in judgment. ...... Well, let's keep going until Toya thinks it's impossible.

I'll let you decide. Let me be the judge of that. I'm not going to be swayed by jewelry!

 Toya smiled and clenched her fists.
 It's true that Toya doesn't have much interest in gems.
 That's for sure.

 But considering his financial situation, I'm slightly worried. ...... Yeah, I'll be careful too.

 Yes, "I can still go" with the spirit of "It's not safe anymore".
