'Let's go to the restaurant. I don't have the energy to make it.'
ãThe sound of my stomach rumbled on and on as if it was complaining.
ãIt seemed that I had slept well for more than a whole day, and when I woke up, Rin had come home.
ãI was both happy and sad, but at any rate, I had to reply to Toka-chan who had worried about me while I was asleep, so I sent her a message while she was ordering a delivery service.
'I've ordered it properly, so it will be here as soon as it's ready. Have you contacted the light?
'Yes, I did.
'Well, it can't be helped if he was asleep. You're probably tired from your part-time job or from playing for a long time, which you're not used to. If you only look at the quota, it's 10 hours a week, so don't overdo it.''
'You're right. I'm sure it's only my brain that's actually being used, but for me it's probably more tiring.
ãI hadn't studied or played games for years. Even though WLO is a fun game, doing something you're not used to will make you tired.
ãI used to stay up all night with Rin and play cooperatively.
'Speaking of which, I think I had a dream...'
'Do you remember what it was about?
'I don't remember anything about it. It's rare for me to have a dream, so I'm pretty sure I had a dream.
ãBefore I woke up, I thought it was very impressive, but when I woke up, my brain memory forgot all about it.
'You have a head cleaner than a bird's.'
'No, you're not.
'No, you may not be aware of it, but Nana's memory is quite bad.
ãHe replied in a serious tone, and I froze.
'Oh, you're kidding, right?ãIsn't it?
'Well, what do you think? Which one do you think it is?
'Rin-chan, Rin-chan?ãDon't play dumb with me!
ãI tried to get Rin-chan to retract her previous statement, but she enjoyed it, and we continued to play with each other until the ramen arrived.
'I ate it, I ate it.
'You smell like an old man, stop it!
ãWhen I was patting my stomach after having eaten all the ramen, pizza and sushi, Rin-chan sighed at me.
'I really wonder where all this food is going to go.
'Hmmm ...... your stomach?'
'I'm going to decapitate you.'
ãI quickly protected my forehead and he pulled my cheeks. Oh, Lin, you're such a stupid liar. ......!
'Now, it's time to stop playing. Nana was asleep last night, so she probably doesn't know about this, but WLO is talking about it right now.
ãAs she said this, she quickly slid her finger on the tablet and brought up a screen.
ãIt looks like the official website of something, .......
'That's the official site of WLO, isn't it?
'Yes, it is. Read this part.'
ãLin pointed to the announcement section of the WLO's official site.
ãIt was one of the top three items marked with 'âNew!
'What's this, an announcement about the ...... event?
â â â Dungeon Event: "Labyrinth of Stardust" â â â â
ãUnder the guidance of the Creator God, the way to the labyrinth in the sky has been opened. Travelers who aim for the stars, show your strength by traversing the labyrinth.
â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â
'Dungeon Event!ãWhat is ......?'
ãIt's a poetic ......, or something like that, yeah. You're not going to explain it!ãI'm not sure what to make of that.
'Hey, look at it. There's an explanation.'
ãScroll down to the bottom of the page and you will find the event details.
ãI'll try to give a rough summary of the event, which is described very carefully.
1) The event is to pass through the warp gates set up at the entrance of each town and challenge the "Stardust Labyrinth" that exists in another world.
(2) There are four levels of difficulty, and the level of difficulty is determined by the warp gate you pass through in the form of the city of beginnings, Dualis, Trillia, and after Pheas.
The difficulty level is determined by the warp gate you pass through. In other words, there is no battling. At the same time, there is no expectation of rescue.
4) There will be 5 servers for this event. 4) There will be 5 servers during the event period. Players will choose a server when they first enter the dungeon, and will explore the labyrinth within that server.
5) Collect "Stardust Fragments" dropped by monsters in the labyrinth, and you can exchange them for items. You can exchange them for weapons, armor, materials, and other items of your choice. The higher the difficulty level, the more "stardust shards" you can get.
The boss of the labyrinth (6) will drop more stardust shards every time you clear it. In order to collect more "Stardust Shards", you should clear the labyrinth many times.
(â¦) The ranking of each server will be announced based on the number of "stardust shards" collected and some other factors. Depending on the final ranking, consumption items will be distributed as rewards.
â§The top rankings of each server are available at ......?
ãIn other words, in a very simple way, this is an event to go around the dungeon a lot and get a lot of items!ãThis is the event.
'That's a good summary for Nana.
'Hahahaha ...... are you praising me?
ãAs he stroked my head and loosened my face, I felt like I didn't care about many things.
'Well, to put it bluntly, it's a roundabout event. I don't know about the exchange items yet, but the ranking rewards are great. The "Resurrection Potion" that will be distributed to the first through tenth place winners has the same name as the resurrection item that was confirmed at the end of the beta test.
'Other than that, there are a lot of rare items in the ...... top rewards, but there don't seem to be any limited items. All of them are worth a lot of money at the moment. Well, you can't give away one item in a game that's just starting out.
ãRin-chan is seriously considering the event from the perspective of game balance.
ãI'm not sure about the details, but this event seems to be a good one to me.
ãBut still, a dungeon event. And it's one that requires you to go around.
ãAs the name implies, "lapsing" means clearing the dungeon over and over again, but if I'm being honest, the rules favor the player who has the most time.
ãThe rewards vary depending on the difficulty level, and bosses drop a lot of "stardust shards", so what you have to do to get to the top of the rankings is simple.
ãThe best way to get to the top of the rankings is simple: go around the dungeons with the highest difficulty in the longest time possible.
ãIf you can do this for the duration of the event, getting to the top of the rankings will be a dream come true.
'The event starts next Friday. That's six days from now.'
'Oh, I thought that was the day the third group could start. It's going to be really heavy if it's combined with the event, isn't it?
'No, the third group starts the day after tomorrow. It looks like they're going to change it to 10 days instead of 2 weeks.
ãAccording to what Rin overheard, the first and second teams were both faster than expected in the early stages of the game, so they decided to shorten the span for new players.
ãIf we add new players on the day of the event, the game itself will become heavy due to the number of accesses and processing, so it is reasonable to leave 4 days for the event to spread out to some extent.
'It looks like the difficulty of the event dungeon won't change from Pheasus onward.
'Yes, it does.
ãI've reached Pheas thanks to the forced march I did with Toka the day before yesterday instead of ......, so I can say that I'm on the minimum line.
ãHowever, Rin is in the fifth city (Griffith) beyond Pheas. I don't think it's impossible to get there in six days. .......
'I know what you're thinking, but you don't have to head to Griffith yet. I'll go back to Pheas for this event.'
'What, are you sure?ãLin, you can see the sixth city by now, right?''
'If we head there in the shortest time. But there aren't many places up to Trillia, but from Fieas onwards, there are villages and small towns where you can stop off. You'll be able to learn more skills, so you'll have a wider range of ways to play.
'Up to the Pheasants is the tutorial, that's rather true.
ãThat said, only about 30% of the first group has reached Feas.
ãI'm sure there are players in the second group who have broken through like I have, but I doubt there are that many yet. The total number of players is probably only about 4,000.
ãEven if the number increases a little more before the next event, there is no doubt that the number of players who have reached Feas is much smaller than the number of players who have reached Trillia, and that seems to be the reason why the difficulty levels after Feas are grouped together.
'Oh, by the way, Kittenmaru-san has invited me to an auction hosted by an NPC. Also, now that I'm in Fierce, I need to go to Shuuya's ...... something clan.'
ãI met Shuuya, a one-handed swordsman, when I asked Dualis to send Toka to me.
ãI remembered that he had asked me to visit his clan in Fierce when we parted.
'Shuuya...... Oh, that's him. The clan is the Round Table, then. Tell the leader I said hello when you see him.'
'Oh, so you know the leader, Rin-chan. What's he like?
'Well, he's ...... strong, that's for sure.'
ã'Well, he's the leader of the clan, so he's probably strong, but ...... if he's muddying the waters, he's probably got some other problem.
'Well, I'll know him when I see him, and I'm sure he'll be a good match for Nana. For now, you can spend the next six days sightseeing and exploring around Fieas. If there's something you want to do, you can prioritize that as well, and if you want to take a break from the distribution, you can do so.
'Oh, and make sure you have plenty of weapons and items in stock. You'll lose a lot of money if they break down while you're going around the dungeon.
'Okay. Rin-chan, you're really serious.
'Of course, if there's a ranking, I'll go get it. Isn't that obvious?
ãThis was a bold statement from Rin-chan, who hated to lose in a fight.
ãI laughed and nodded at the belligerent smile on Rin's face.
