Itai no wa Iya nanode Bōgyo-Ryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu. – Chapter 4

Chapter 4: Defence Specialized and Concentration

 

「Yo〜sh! Let’s also do our best today!」

 

Continuing from yesterday, Kaede logged in to New World Online.

 

「Let’s go to the forest today too〜! I also want new skills」

 

Kaede wasn’t the type who is engrossed on levelling up, but still, she is attracted by the exciting feeling that you get when you gain a new skill. Like filling a bookshelf with books, it is a moment of fun.

 

「I should get skills that will raise VIT mostly right!」

 

And, with Kaede’s usual slow walking pace, *TekuTeku* she went towards outside of the town.

 

「I wonder what should I try〜…」

 

She thought like that, and the first thing that came to her mind was sensory awareness. If you can be aware of the enemy’s presence from the start, there shouldn’t be a more convenient thing than that.

 

「Yo〜sh! I’m going to do it〜!」

 

Kaede placed her large shield on the ground, closed her eyes, and searched for presences.

Actually, this approach.

Is wrong, big time.

The real approach is written on the conqueror’s bulletin board, hit the unseen enemy with an attack using bow and arrows or throwing stones as if you know that it is there.

It was like that, although it seems that there is a hole in the system. In the first place, if Kaede acquires it in this approach, Kaede would be able to use Sensory Awareness in the real world.

Kaede wasn’t that kind of superman.

 

And Kaede who doesn’t know about that closed her eyes and concentrated mindlessly.

She just did that, after three hours.

To Kaede’s ears who had just exerted patience for unknown reasons, a system message had arrived.

 

『Skill 【Meditation】 had been acquired』

 

「A-re, 【Meditation】 ? It wasn’t Sensory Awareness…I see, that’s too bad…」

 

Just like that, when she tried to stand up, she noticed that her body was heavy. She opened both of her eyes, and when she checked her body, from centipedes and caterpillars that are small fries, to wolves that were a bit stronger, they clinging to Kaede’s defenceless trying to attack it.

 

「Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa?!!!」

 

With a scream, *ZakkuZakku* she defeated the centipedes and wolves by stabbing them with her short sword, to the 【STR 9】 Kaede, it was very difficult. The enemies couldn’t be defeated at all. But, they are too weak and cannot wound Kaede’s body, so she can stab the blade to her body without worries.

But, seemingly caught by Kaede’s scream, monsters were coming out one next to the other from the back.

 

『Skill 【Provoke】 had been acquired』

 

She is happy because of the new skill, but first she needed to escape this crisis.

And finally.

 

『Your level had risen to 11』

 

「Fu〜…it was a difficult fight…well then, let’s check the skill〜!」

 

【Meditation】

If used, 1% of maximum HP will recover in 10 seconds. Duration of effect is 10 minutes. No MP consumption.

While in 【Meditation】 you cannot take any attack movements.

 

Skill Requirement

Not lose concentration while in all kinds of pain and meditate for three hours.

 

「It’s not like I was meditating though〜…well, strong skills are welcome you know!」

 

Next, she also checks the provoke.

 

【Provoke】

Draws the monster’s attention into one point.

 

Skill Requirement.

Steal more than 10 monsters’ attention at once.

 

「This would also be nice during levelling up」

 

The original way, of being used by a person with highest defence powers in the party to tank, it was a skilled used in parties, but Kaede didn’t look at it like that. For the reason, her AGI was so low, that even if she tries to catch up with monsters during grinding, she couldn’t catch up to them. And the only person who had that kinds of worries, even in all of the players, is Kaede.

Anyways, with this, she would be able to raise her level any time.

 

「The only left is to place the status points to VIT…n? There are 10 status points!」

 

Right, you can receive twice the usual status points given at the multiples of tens. This was created that way, but to Kaede, it was an unexpected gift, and she was somehow happy with it.

Meanwhile, in a certain internet bulletin board.

 

【NWO】I saw a “bad” large shield user

 

  1. Name : Nameless Large Sword User

This is bad

 

  1. Name : Nameless Spear User

kwsk

 

  1. Name : Nameless Magic User

How “bad” is it

 

  1. Name : Nameless Large Sword User

Dunno. it was for some reason sitting while being surrounded by tens of Big Centipedes and Caterpillars.

 

  1. Name : Nameless Spear User

Ha?  wtf.

you’d die by that, lol. even if you equip large shield.

 

  1. Name : Nameless Bow User

>1

with strong equips? what about there

 

  1. Name : Nameless Large Sword User

>6

it looked like it was beginner’s equips

just thinking of it makes my hair stand.

I wonder how you can be calm being surrounded by caterpillars and centipedes.

 

  1. Name : Nameless Magic User

I can only say……probably nullifies the attack if not dying by that…

 

  1. Name : Nameless Spear User

you can do that?

 

  1. Name : Nameless Bow User

>9

if I’m correct, someone tested VIT full build. it probably had endured the attack of White Rabbits

 

  1. Name : Nameless Spear User

trash build

 

  1. Name: Nameless Large Shield User

I probably know who’s that

 

  1. Name : Nameless Large Swordsman

>12

kwsk

 

  1. Name : Nameless Large Shield User

I dunno the ign but it’s a bishoujo not reaching 150 cm

from her walking speed, her AGI is almost zero

btw, if I do the same thing, I’ll melt in an instant

 

  1. Name : Nameless Magic User

really full build? well, but might find hidden skills or something

 

  1. Name : Nameless Spear User

Ah〜something like that you say, I mean a girl, and a bishoujo on top of that

 

  1. Name : Nameless Bow User

Hou, that’s where you look huh

I second you

 

  1. Name : Nameless Large Sword User

n〜 well, can only find information later huh

if she becomes a top player, her name should probably be showing somewhere

 

  1. Name : Nameless Large Shield User

if I find something, I’ll post it

 

  1. Name : Nameless Magic User

Thank you very much for the information provided!! (Salutes)

 

Just like that, in places where Kaede doesn’t know about, Kaede became a topic for a while.

    I think with all the points in VIT she has she should have a lot more HP than 40/40, as the VIT stat in most games doesn’t give only DEF but also HP u.u.

        Why not, it’s not like I was insulting anybody in anyway, just wondering, since her HP didn’t change even a bit from Level 1, what’s kinda weird actually, that it didn’t even raise with Level Ups. I mean I can dig it, don’t misunderstand, it just seemed weird for me as someone who has played a lot of games. I still like the story so far, but it’s also funny, if u ask me why I post it here, cuz u could have just also ignored my post which stated nothing more than a simple harmless opinion instead of questioning me why I did it😮.

        No, what I meant was, there is no point in making the suggestion here. If you want to make the suggestion about the plot, you should tell it to the author. It’s not like the translator can change it. I wasn’t getting mad at you either, it was just an observation.

        I am sorry, it is very hard to get intentions across on the Internet. I was basing my comment on the idea that you were suggesting changes to the story, not just making an opinion. I too was just making an observation rather than confronting you. I hope you will understand that I had no intention and was just saying that if you want to suggest something about the story, it is better to talk to the author.

        Don’t worry, I got your intention, what I wanted to point out was, that I was not trying to suggest any changes to the plot, but rather than that try to see if I could find people who think the same, cuz like I stated before, it made me wonder, as to why here HP didn’t even raise with LV Ups, cuz if u don’t even get any status up from lv ups the level system seems pretty unnecessary. You get what I’m saying :3? And rather than that I’m kind of sorry for the TL cuz we spamed him with comments that don’t have much point xD, I rather feel bad for him and the others reading the comments. So don’t worry about it and I’m sorry too. I don’t interact with people that much, that’s why I tried to make it sound as friendly as possible, but It might have been taken as provocative or something, I don’t know.

    • Technically not taking damage is OP. A reasonable skill I could see her getting one in which physical skills used on her can damage the attacker or reduce a weapons durability depending which is used. Personally I hope she doesn’t remain solo and doesn’t become OP in other aspects. But as was said before that’s a staple of these kind of novels. Though given that she isn’t being mocked for her pure build already deviates from the norm.

    • A reasonable skill I could see her getting would be that any physical damage done to her will either damage the opponent or the durability of a weapon as if they were hitting very hard object. Technically not an OP skill but with her OP stat in VIT it would be very useful when combined with provoke. Personally I hope she doesn’t remain solo or get any OP skills that don’t fall in line with defending (such as counters or redirects). But given the norm of these novels I’m not holding out hope. Then again her not being completely mocked for her pure build is already deviating from the norm

      I did a full def build with a character before. Using AoE provoke, gather all the mobs in the area and let Mage friend do the kill. It worked well and we leveled pretty fast too. And in GW, you need to kill the guy with the guild buff to win.

      Also did the same to my paladin in ragnarok more than 10 years ago. Although in that game, stat counter stop is at 99 so I still had str and dex. Not a good build when your going solo but works fine in a party.

      Some of her skills only activate during battle. She checked during non-combat mode, so it is more or less no buffs yet. So she probably isn’t in full potential.
