82-The Knight of Jewelry and Armour

'I wonder what this is...'

 Nana pokes at the treasure chest with her sticky stitches.
 It may be using its detection skills, but if it's a trap monster, there's a chance it'll get past them.
 Completely oblivious to this possibility, she poked at the box with curiosity, looking much younger than the usual Nana.

'It could be a monster, so be careful.

(I mean, aren't you in too good a mood?)

 (I mean, aren't you in too good of a mood?) Although I warned her, she muttered in her mind an unconcealed surprise.
 The last time Nana had been this curious was when she was really young.
 When she met me, she didn't even have the natural emotion of curiosity.

'Alright, ...... hmm?

 Nana finally put her hand on the mouth of the treasure chest, and tilted her head as the chest opened by itself with just a light lift.
 As I watched her from behind, I felt indescribably disappointed because it was so predictable.


 Clang! The mouth of the treasure chest closes with a clang.
 Nana shouted loudly, perhaps startled by the treasure chest ...... that suddenly showed its fangs, or the trap monster, the Jewelry Box.
 Normally, I would be worried, but seeing her punch it out of reflex makes me feel like a fool for worrying.

 The jewelry box was already on the verge of dying, having been knocked out before it could attack.
 I feel sorry for the monster when it doesn't let me do anything.
 To put it bluntly, the jewel box is not as powerful as a trap monster. It's rather easy to defeat it when it's unmimicked.
 This monster steals items and runs away when it is successfully attacked, so to speak.
 Since it randomly moves to the same floor of the dungeon, it can be quite troublesome if it steals valuable items.
 It's mainly a problem between players,.......

I'm not sure if you've seen this before, but I've seen it before.

'A lot?

'Here, here, here.'

'Let's see. ...... Oh, that's a lot, really.'

 While I was feeling sorry for her, Nana smashed her to death and turned her into dust, and the result of the jewelry box showed that she had over 50 pieces of stardust.
 Considering that most monsters only drop between four and eight shards, that's certainly a lot for a single monster.
 In addition to that, there are 'corundum' drops. This is a material item that can be processed into rubies, sapphires, and other gems.
 Although not as valuable as the diamonds that the jewelry box drops on rare occasions, it was still a valuable item in the sense that it would always turn into jewelry.

'That's pretty good.

'Do you want to look for more?

'No, you'll be lucky if you find any. It'll probably be randomly placed, so let's prioritize speed.

'Yes, sir.

 Nana replied cheerfully, and started walking through the labyrinth again with a light step.
 It seems that Nana has already mapped out the next end of the labyrinth in her mind, and there is no hesitation in her steps.
 Although there was no hesitation in the direction she was going, the way she was wandering left and right, she really looked like she was in a fever.

 When she was about to take the stairs, Nana saw a bear-shaped monster, the Metal Bear, pop up and blinked her eyes.

'Why is there a bear in the ground?

'I wonder why.

 According to Nana's current senses, this dungeon is in the ground.
 It's probably because we keep going down, but it's not like this labyrinth has walls of earth.

'So, you're an earth dragon, huh?

'No, what are you talking about, Nana?

"You're a mole.
What are you talking about?

 You can't really predict what Nana is going to say now.
 You'll be able to get a lot more out of it than you might think.
 What an unbelievable combo in a loose atmosphere. .......

I'm not sure what to say.

 With that, Nana crushes the fallen Metal Bear's head into the floor of the labyrinth, humming to herself as she makes her way to the end of the labyrinth.

I'm not sure what to do.
I can't see any movement at all.

 It's not very sophisticated. There's no technique to it.
 He's just thinking about punching out one way and feeling good about it.
 He doesn't enjoy fighting. He's just excited that I've given him permission to wield his power freely and without restraint.

'Mmmm, mmmm, mmmm, mmmm.

'Holy shit.
'Can you do gymnastics?
"You can do gymnastics?" "You can do baton with a metal bar.
"You're so handy.

 Perhaps because I was out of time, Nana started doing some sort of baton twirling with Kagewo, which should have a strength requirement of over 200.
 In addition to the lively comments, I wondered how I should handle Nana, who was in a much better mood than I expected.


 The Labyrinth of Stardust, level 10 underground.
 When we came out on a large floor that seemed to be a boss room, we stopped when we saw the boss standing in the center of the floor.
 At a glance, it looks like a knight in full armor. However, it was a very large knight in armor, standing about three meters tall.
 As I approached the knight, who was waiting for me in a royal pose with a large sword thrust in front of him and his hands on top of it, a red light lit up the gap in his helmet.

'My name is Mirage, and I am a knight in the service of the Sirens.

'Wow, he's talking.


 Nana was surprised to hear the armor speak, and I couldn't help but ask about the name, which I had never heard before.
 In the event you're not sure what you're looking for, there are a few things you can do.

'Now, be normal!

I'm not sure what to do.

I don't know.

 I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not, but it's a good idea.
 I'm useless in this kind of power confrontation, so for the time being I took a large distance from the two of them.
 It seems that the power of the two of them is on par with each other, and the dark golden rod and the dull-colored greatsword sparkle as they engage in a fierce battle.

'Oh, you're going to stop my sword?

'Well, no.'

'Then how about this?

 The knight's sword, which had stopped fierce fighting and had been pulled back, was lit with light. That was probably a sign that he was going to activate his arts.
 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're doing.
 Her arms are tightly drawn and her knees are bent as if to save her strength. After a pause of a few seconds, the knight jumped out with great force.

I'm not sure what to do.

 The tip of the blade rips through the ground, and the flash of the sword rises upward.  
 And then he sliced through the stone floor. In the event that you have any questions concerning where and how to use the internet, you can contact us at the web site.
 At first glance, it looked as if his best shot had been missed.
 However, the blade jumped up to a sufficient height, and when it came to rest, it swung down with a tremendous sound with a step.

 The flash of the sword was sharp and heavy, cutting the wind and making a roaring sound.
 I see, that's how it's called.
 It's true that Nana was in the middle of a storm of slashes as if she were exposed to a storm.
 All she was doing was unceasingly unleashing her full power of slashes. However, it's not that easy to stop the momentum of an attack wielded with all your might.
 When you can unleash a slash of that much power without any gaps, you can say that it is quite an amazing technique.
 However, it is .......


 But that's only if your opponent isn't Nana.
 You'll be able to find a lot more information on this subject in the following pages.
 You'll be able to get a lot more than that. The variety and power of these consecutive attacks is indeed astounding.
 But to Nana, it's just a series of single-strike attacks.
 If you avoid them, you'll be able to avoid them without even getting a scratch.

"You didn't hit me?
"I avoided everything.
"Didn't you just sneeze?

'That's not a good match. ......'

 That knight in shining armor would be a fairly simple heavy warrior type boss. Although they may have ranged attacks, the basic attacks of that type of monster tend to be rather simple.
 It's relatively good for players who can catch attacks, like tanks, or players with low sturdiness, like wizards, but it's very bad for players who can see through attacks and exploit gaps, like Nana.
 But even so... If you ask me if it would hit you if your sword speed was faster, I feel that the current Nana in a good mood would easily dodge it.

 Why is Nana in such a good mood? It's probably a combination of several factors, but Nana is probably in a great mood right now.
 She doesn't usually show her emotions, so the more she gets emotional, the more she gets in shape and the more she concentrates.
 As far as I know, her best performance in the past two weeks was probably the fight against Aria the Red Wolf.
 At that time, Nana was bare of her emotions, enjoying the extreme battle.

'Hey~, are you done?

I'm not sure.

 In the end, Nana ducked out of the way of the storm slash and used her last evasion to get past Mirage's groin.
 I don't think he aimed there because the armor was thin or anything.
 When he got to the back, where he could easily avoid the counterattack, Mirage was simply too big for him to aim at the vital point, so he tried to crush him from the legs.
 In addition to HP, monsters also have durability for each part of their body. Cutting off their tails and shattering their feathers, well, that's a given in hack-and-slash.
 Mirage has two visualized HP. Since the first one is reduced by less than 20% by four strikes, the HP itself is probably not that high.

I'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm not the only one.

'I see?

'But it seems this technique will be difficult to defeat you. Now, can you spot the next attack?

 It's hard to tell if this Mirage monster is loaded with AI or if it's just talking as it's programmed.
 However, there's no reason to put an AI that thinks and talks on a monster that is supposed to be played around, so I guess it's an NPC monster that does what it's supposed to do in a given situation.
 I'd be grateful if it came up every time I played. At this rate, I'll be able to meta with Nana alone.

'Well, let's get ready while Nana is working hard.

"You're doing that?
"That's unusual.
We haven't had any boss fights lately.

'Yeah. I'm going to focus on ...... for a bit.'

 Magic is a much freer power than you might imagine.
 As long as you have the necessary factors to activate it, you can use songs, words, sounds, letters, or anything else as a stepping stone to activate it.
 So, as long as you have enough magic power, you can activate several spells at the same time like I did earlier.
 In other words.
 There is no need to limit yourself to just one method of drawing up the factors necessary to construct a spell.
 All you have to do is to combine a number of methods and assemble them in such a way that the magic will be activated in the end.

 Right hand for the letters. Left hand, form a formation. Whistle a tune to instantly create a powerful spell.
 This time, I prepared 《Lightning Ballista》, a single, high-powered advanced spell that I took care not to involve Nana by mistake.
 This spell, which normally requires six verses of chanting, can be activated in less than five seconds.
 It boasts speed and power unmatched by the Arrow-type spells of the beginner level, and unusually for an advanced spell of the lightning attribute, it is not a ranged attack and consumes little MP, making it very easy to use.

 As you try to take careful aim, your eyes meet Nana's.
 I believe Nana, who smiled and nodded as she avoided the knight's arts, and I shot the ballista through the knight's torso.

I'm not sure what to do.

 The sound of iron cracking iron was heard, and Kagewi was wielded.

 He was particularly careful to target the tips of his feet and his thighs. In addition to that, the blow aimed at the back of the knee, which was also aimed at earlier, struck a critical hit with frightening accuracy.

I'm not sure what to make of this.

 In the event that you've got a lot of time, you'll be able to take a look at the best way to get the most out of your time.
 It's a rare skill that allows you to stock up on magic by consuming magic power for a certain period of time and keeping it on standby.
 It is one of the rare skills that was given to me as a reward when I participated in the defeat of the Nameless, and it is a skill that goes very well with the fast chanting that I have been using for a while now.
 The three arrows that were released with a thunderous roar pierced my body, head, and legs respectively, accumulating a great deal of damage along with numbness.

'Haha, mmmmmmmm, I can hit you all I want.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.
 The big body of Mirage swayed. I'm not sure what to make of that.

 Once she knew, there was nothing she could do.
 It was almost like a set-up, and we were hunting Mirage down.
 It took less than five minutes for my magic to penetrate Mirage and for his neck to be bent in a strange direction by Nana's full force smack.

"Well done, .......

 The Mirage's neck was still bent, but he paid tribute to her and then collapsed and disappeared.
 In the end, there was no need for me to do anything, just Nana's onslaught was enough to cut down his HP.

'Hmm~ ...... weak?'

'I guess so.

 I agree with Nana's muttering. The armored mounted gorilla is much stronger in terms of resistance, as it is easily frightened by magic and its armor immediately goes bald, no matter how incompatible it is with Nana.
 Above all, HP is too low. Even if it's supposed to be a round-robin, that's a bit of a letdown.

'Lin, something came out...'

 Nana, who had somehow moved to the edge of the room, is waving her hand in front of a shimmering object that has appeared on the far wall of the boss room.
 That must be the warp gate for escape. I wonder how many pieces of stardust we collected.

'We'll figure it out later.

'What's wrong?

'Nothing, I'm fine. Let's go home.

 Even if you take your time, it should only take a few hours. I don't know how much randomness there is, but I was able to memorize all the routes this time.

'Shall we establish a way to go around today and tomorrow?

'Hmmm ......, I'll leave it to you!

'You've completely given up on thinking.
'You're so dumb.
'You're a complete child.
'But you're both going to do the same thing.
"You're gone.
"It's forbidden to talk about age with women, right?
"Girls will always be 17. Okay?
That's painful. ......
"Hey, stop it.

'You know what? ......'

 Nana went through the warp gate without coming back in a good mood.
 I followed after her, scratching my head in disgust at the listeners who saw her and got excited about strange topics.
