'Hey, why is Amber able to use magic?
'Hmm?ãNo, I can't use magic.
ãMy question came back as a disappointing answer.
ãI don't think it needs to be said that the demon race is a race that specializes in physical skills.
ãAlthough they are not the strongest in all four physical statuses (strength, sturdiness, dexterity, and agility), they show an overwhelming growth in total value that cannot be compared to others.
ãOn the other hand, he is bound by the fact that he can't be even close to the average in magic even if he spent all his bonus points.
ãBut Amber, who is supposed to be a demon like me, was clearly using something powerful and magical.
ãI'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's a good idea.
ãIf I can use it, I want to have it in my hand.
ãI thought so, but my statement was easily denied.
'To tell you the truth, it's an item.
ãWhen I heard Amber's words, I thought of something that when shaken, would cause a flash of light or recover HP.
'That's right. It's a mark that can only be made by a special kind of person called a 'magician' of the fox tribe. The price varies, but the one I just used is a mid-range magic that costs about 10,000 Iris each.
'10,000 Iris ......?
'If you think of it that way, it's a cheap way for us demons to easily deal with our demons.
ãIt's true. In the event that you've got a lot of money, you'll be able to buy a lot of things, and you'll be able to buy a lot of things.
ãAfter all, there is almost no lag in activation. There is no other item as effective as it in terms of emergency defense.
ãIf it's only 10,000 Iris, it's an unbelievable price. It hurts that it's disposable, though.
ãBut the Vixens... The Vixens are shown in the game's PV, but they're one of the non-playable, or non-controllable, races, I think.
ãThey have two forms, a quadrupedal beast form and a bipedal beast-human form, and they can transform into a human form when they grow up.
ãThe name is famous enough to be on the official introduction page, but I've never seen one before, at least not in my life.
'I've never seen a demon tribe before.
'That's not surprising. They have a high sense of tribe, and most of them are in hidden villages. If I wasn't a demon, I wouldn't have interacted with them either.
'If you weren't a demon?
'The demon tribe and the vixen tribe are on friendly terms. Perhaps it's because of the close relationship between the Demon God and the Immortal Fox, they've had a strong bond for a long time.
ãI see. It seems that the demon tribe is on good terms with the vixen tribe.
ãIf that's the case, maybe I can go and buy some magic?
ãBut they seem to be a closed race, and I'm an outsider player. .......
I'm sure you'll be able to find something that will help you.
'Haha, well, I'm sure they'll like you. Both the demon tribe and the vixen tribe prefer the strong.
ãNow that I'm here, my gaze goes to my chest again. It's not that I'm being sarcastic, it's just that the ãCertificate of the Famous Sole Avengerã is worth that much.
ãSoon, I could see a sunny spot surrounded by tall trees.
'Now, we're about to reach the master of the forest, but you don't need any help, do you?
'Of course. I'm already familiar with this one.'
ãThis is not the hammer, but the gauntlet.
ãThanks to the bonus points I gained from the level I gained in the battle, I have enough strength to carry Meteor Impact Zero.
ãI've fought a few battles and know how to use it.
ãHowever, it would not be a hardship if I could wield it easily just because I have reached the required strength value. Just because you know how to use it doesn't mean you know how to use it well.
ãSeeing me like that, Amber laughed happily.
'Bare-knuckle fighting, huh? By the way, you were using it just now. ...... Whether you know it or not, it looks good on you.
ãAfter saying that, Amber gently pushed me back and led me to the boss's room.
'Yeah, have a good day.
ãThe sun was shining, but not through the trees.
ãAs if it had been waiting for me to step into the room, a purple-colored serpent appeared.
ãThe snake's coiled height alone was probably 10 meters. And its whole body was thick. It looks like it's worth a shot.
ãIts name is "Poison Naga Lv. 27". It only has a single HP gauge.
ãLike the Red Ogre in the Cave of Trials, the names of bosses are rather simple, aren't they?
'Well, let's do it.
ãI clenched my fists in front of the Poison Naga, which made a shrill sound.
ãIn WLO, monsters that use poison are not uncommon.
ãThe Lizard of the Swamp, which I should have been able to fight, is said to be a poisonous monster, and the Hydrosnake in the Forest of the End is also poisonous.
ãIn fact, the goblin archer also has poisoned arrows and can be found at ....... So, even the enemies that lead up to this point are this many in number.
ãAnd then there's that. The namesake that Rowe defeated, Vladia the Luring Serpent.
ãIt's said to appear around Fierce, but I'm pretty sure that Rowe got a rare skill that's poisonous, so it's probably a poisonous type of monster too.
ãIf you think about it, the Poison Naga in front of you might be a degraded version of the Named.
ãStill, you can't be too careful.
ãThis is the "Demon Forest". It means that all monsters can use magic.
'Is there a rule in this game ...... that big monsters can be fixed turrets?
ãThe Poison Naga deployed a light purple magic circle around her, and then shot out a liquid of the same color.
ãIt was easy to evade, but I could see the ground where it landed melting.
'That's right, isn't it?
ãJudging from the degree of dissolution, it might be closer to a digestive liquid than a poisonous liquid.
ãI don't see the need for it to be cast as a spell, but it looked like it would hurt like hell.
ãThe size of the body being swung around seemed to make it difficult to avoid,
'It doesn't move very fast,......,' he said.
ãI tried to avoid it for a while and decided that I could go for it, so I lightly swung the gauntlets on both arms and put all my strength into it.
ãYou'll be able to find a lot more than just a few of them.
ãThe sound of the fist slamming into the thick belly of the serpent was a weak ...... sound.
ãThe response was too weak to be a clean hit, but that's okay.
ãAt that moment, my fists took on a slight glow.
ãThe arts of the ãBare Hands Fightingã skill. The essence of this skill lies in its continuous strikes.
ãIt's a sentence from the skill description page, but that's about the only way I can explain it.
ãThe light-clad fist increases in power with each strike.
ãThe sound of the blow, weak and unreliable at first, becomes heavier and deeper with each strike.
ãThe good thing about this art is its long grace period. Even if you weave in and out of evasion, the effects of the art will not stop.
ãA total of ten consecutive strikes will start with a weak sound and eventually turn into a thud!ãThe sound of the first ten strikes changed from a feeble sound to a bursting sound.
ãThe "Toezakura" Arts.
ãIt is a 10-strike skill that is most powerful when used against large, slow monsters.
ãDue to the synergistic effect of my high muscle strength, the power of the heavy metal gauntlet with its high attack power, and the firepower of the ten-layered cherry blossoms, Poison Naga had already lost 30% of its HP.
ãThe Poison Naga was frightened by the last blow, but before I could break its rigidity, it twisted its whole body and launched a cleave attack.
ãI was blown away by the direct hit to my unprotected stomach, letting out a slightly suspicious sound as a girl.
ãThe damage was not serious. I knew from the way the attack passed through me that my large figure was almost like a piece of papier-mÃ¢chÃ©.
'Wow, that's a lot of stiffness.
ãI didn't think I'd be able to take it unprotected.
ãWhile he was taking a breath, Poison Naga was also regaining his stance.
ãThe Tenfold Cherry Blossom is powerful and has a grace period, but it also has two drawbacks.
ãOne is the duration. It takes at least 5 seconds to finish hitting the opponent.
ãThe other is that you have to hit the same monster with all 10 hits. This isn't really a drawback, just that you can't use it against small monsters.
ãThere are easier techniques with less gaps and fewer hits, but you can't use them unless you're dealing with huge monsters. ...... To be honest, it's almost like a romantic gun.
ãI'm not sure if I'd have been able to do that if I'd been hit with a spell.
ãI'm satisfied that I was able to activate it, so I'm going to start chopping it up more.
ãSsangYong" with both hands in the air. The "Three Clouds," a three-strike attack that can be connected in less than 0.5 seconds, is followed by the "Four Leaves," a combination of a left, right, spinning kick and a backward jumping spinning kick.
ãThe advantage of this skill is that you can connect arts that have increased by one number into a series of strikes, and this is the reason why it is called 'the essence is in the series of strikes'.
ãThis is the reason why it is called 'the quintessence of striking'.
ãAfter the three seconds of rigidity, I tried to dodge the four incoming spells by backstepping, but my feet were buried in the ground and I was momentarily stopped.
ãI managed to duck, but on closer inspection, I saw that some of the ground that had been hit by the dissolver spell had melted into a muddy mess.
ãAt first glance, it looked as if the surface had just melted. There were no holes, so I didn't notice it, but it might have been a spell that melted only the inside softly.
ãThe ground was bald where the spell had fallen, so I could tell. .......
ãI have a bad feeling about this. Take away their foothold, narrow their escape. What do you think they'll do after taking away your mobility?
'That's what they'll do, isn't it ......?
ãUp until this point, I had only seen spells of intermediate level at best, no matter how powerful they were.
ãIt was a spell called "Earth Javelin" that the goblin mage had unleashed at a different time than the one during the panic, after taking about a minute to do so, but it had a speed that could not be compared to that of a ball-type spell.
ãI was able to avoid it because I took time to prepare and I knew the angle of fire, but if it had hit me unexpectedly, it would have been quite dangerous.
ãNow, with that in mind.
ãThe size of the magic circle that Poison Naga is currently holding with its mouth wide open is at least larger than Earth Javelin.
ãI don't know what's going to fly at me, but if I were to die from an ice ball, I'd be dead most likely.
ãFortunately, it seems to take some time to activate, and judging by the glow of the magic circle, it looks like it will take at least another 20 seconds.
'If only I had that much time!
ãNaga's HP was about sixty percent. Rather than take a gamble on whether I could avoid it or not, there was something I wanted to try.
ãHe assessed the hard ground, kicked out as hard as he could, and launched the SsangYong halfway into the Poison Naga's body. Two seconds.
ãThere was some recoil damage, but I didn't care. He fires ãMikumoã and ãYonbaã more sharply than before. 4 seconds.
ãFive consecutive hand-to-hand blows with ãGowaã. Six seconds.
ãSix high-speed, speed-focused fist blows ãRikudouã. 7 sec.
'...... Here it is!
ãUsing the last shot of the Sixth Path as a starting point, activate the Tenfold Cherry Blossom.
ãThe power of the Ten-Plane Cherry Blossom is based on an additive method, starting with the first hit and adding damage with each hit. The final damage is equivalent to the first 55 shots.
ãPerhaps because the damage of the first shot was so great, the recoil is so strong that it cannot be controlled.
ãThe third shot was already as powerful as the last.
ãFrom the fourth hit, it became unbearable, and my HP was reduced.
ãEach of the fifth and sixth hits reduced my HP more and more, but there were others who suffered more.
'Ha ...... Aaah!
ãThe seventh shot. A fist so powerful that even I can't control it pierces Poison Naga's thick body.
ãThe Poison Naga collapsed, convulsed for a while, and then disappeared as if it were dissolving into a polygon.
ãIt took only 15 seconds. Even though my level was higher than his, it took him less than a minute to remove more than 50% of the damage.
ãMaybe the damage efficiency of this skill is broken. .......
ãThe avatar stiffens as it swings into the void with the eighth shot, which is too powerful to control.
ãHe couldn't move, but there were no more enemies. I slowly exhaled the breath I had been holding during the barrage, and sat down on the ground when I was able to move after a few seconds.
ãDon't tell anyone that I almost got my butt stuck in the mud, okay?
