**Chapter 52 – Defense Specialized and Skill Selection **

The event ended and they were returned to their original location.

The accelerated time returned to its original flow as well.

An announcement was broadcasted by the management and exchanging skills and medals would be 30 minutes from now, so they were told to transfer the medals they possess if needed.

Maple had already given Sally her medals so there was no problem.

「I wonder what kind of skill there is?」

「Who knows? We can only wait and look……」

And after 30 minutes.

The management broadcasted an announce once again and told the players that they would be transported individually to a specialized room. It was also said that they cannot consult with others, so the individuals must choose the skill that they think they need.

And, finally, those ones who possess more than ten medals were enveloped by light and disappeared.

Maple’s vision is currently filled by the same blue color as the status plate.

One panel is floating in the middle of the exitless room that Maple is currently in.

Maple approached that and found skill names aligned in it.

It could be operated to show the detailed explanations of each skill.

「E〜to… there’s about, a hundred?」

Combat-type skill, production-type skill, status increasing-type skill, and other skills that do not belong among them.

Those were aligned in order.

「There doesn’t seem to be a time limit, so… I should take my time and decide!」

Maple has to types of skill that she can choose. Maple does not need skills that are blatantly attack-types so she ignored them.

They are the skills like【Divine Swordsmanship】or【Dragonic Spear】whose effects are obvious from their names.

And if you mention production-type skills, Maple’s DEX is too low so it would only be a waste.

With those in mind, the skills that Maple could choose is limited.

It could be said that among those who possess medals, Maple is the player who has the most number of skills that would prove useless even if she learned them.

With that reason, the time that she would be hesitating is reduced accordingly.

「【All Resist】… no,【Fortress】looks good too〜… even choosing【Magic Powers Increment】is quite, as well…」

Maple took her time choosing which one she should choose.

「n? ………nn??」

Maple’s eyes landed on a certain skill.

She took her time staring at that skill’s explanation that a hole was almost opened.

「T-This! This should be the first one!」

A eureka flashed in Maple’s head.

She abided that and chose that skill.

「The last one, I wonder which I should choose…」

Maple started to select a skill once again. She is planning to decide immediately if a eureka like earlier appears.

「Which〜 should〜 I〜 choose〜? n〜…」

Maple did not found a skill that lit a light bulb, so after some deep thoughts, she learned【Fortress】.

【Fortress】is a skill that multiplies VIT by 1.5x.

Its activation requirement does not have a demerit as well, making it a skill that is worth the precious medals.

Maple possesses a skill that is equal to that, but that is because Maple is a little, no, quite far away from the norm.

Anyways, after finishing choosing her skills, Maple was once again enveloped by the light and disappeared.

hmm finish?

-.-“–

thanks

Wonder what that first skull was, thanks for the chapter, Maple finding a way to get nerfed again.

…I suddenly imagine that she would pick an actual skeleton that could protect her.

Opps, I meant skill, didn’t look twice when I typed it.

thanks for the chapter

thanks for the chapter n illustrations~

can’t wait to see what she picked~

Thanks for the update

Thanks for the chapter!

Seems like Maple would be quite vulnerable to electrical attacks, given that her armor is metal. Perhaps she should have grabbed a resistance to that sort of attack. But clearly she has taken something tricky instead. Doesn’t she have open skill slots on the remainder of her armor? So, maybe something like “speed” that she can transfer to her boots? Or maybe a production multiplier skill that makes it so that created magic items are doubled in effect? In which case “Abominable” would create gems that are 2x as strong.

Oi oi. You’re already tanky enough..

Well her Vitality is definitely high enough. the thing is, in this story, VIT and HP are apparently two unrelated stats. Her HP is probably decently high for her level, but since every class had defense piercing skills implemented, she’ll probably need more HP.

Of course, any non-piercing attack probably wouldn’t do jack squat, whether it be a normal attack or skill from any player.

Yup, tanks are Gods even where you go…

Thanks for chapter.

So Maple Vit will more increase huh? She already can’t be killed by other player, so when her level reached same height with top players only last boss can damage her huh?

more like she will probabaly fill the role of an entire tank party if it’s a raid-boss

Haven’t you heard? Maple IS the last boss! She’s a moving fortress with fierce DoT and has methods to rapidly recover lost HP without any real restrictions. XD

I loved that joke from the forum thread after the first PvP event. All the characters were so incredulous.

Thanks for the chapter!

Woah! a good skill she got, i am curious what is the 1st skill she choose, maybe something like convert all VIT to STR for certain time ? or Summoning skill that can summon Guardian ? or a passive skill that will give Str per 3 or 5 or 10 ViT she have ? or a Poison Skill ? or a Sacrifice skill that can let her attack with her HP point to attack her enemy HP and the higher the skill the higher the damage and the skill also Ignore all kind of resistant and defence, also the more higher the skill lv the more HP can be sacrificed!? example from 100 hp deal 50 hp damage for lv 1 and max can sacrifice 5% total HP, then when lv 2, it will deal 100 Hp damage by sacrificing her 100 hp and max can sacrifice 10% total HP, lv 3 will deal 150 Hp Damage by sacrificing her 100 hp and max can sacrifice 16% total HP, lv 4 will deal 300 Hp Damage by sacrificing her 100 hp and max can sacrifice 23% total HP, lv 5 will deal 500 Hp Damage by sacrificing her 100 hp and max can sacrifice 31% total HP, lv 6 will deal 750 Hp Damage by sacrificing her 100 hp and max can sacrifice 40% total HP, lv 7 will deal 1050 Hp Damage by sacrificing her 100 hp and max can sacrifice 50% total HP, lv 8 will deal 1450 Hp Damage by sacrificing her 100 hp and max can sacrifice 61% total HP, lv 9 will deal 1900 Hp Damage by sacrificing her 100 hp and max can sacrifice 73% total HP, lv 10 will deal 2400 Hp Damage by sacrificing her 100 hp and max can sacrifice 86% total HP. IoI so if she increase the amount like sacrificing 1000 HP and if it lv 10, it will deal 24.000 HP, if She sacrificing 10.000 HP it will deal 240.000 HP,to all kind of Enemy!! [a bit Similar to the skill sacrifice of Paladin from Ragnarok Online]

Thanks for the chapter!

Here’s the link to the next chapter.

So, is her total VIT multiplier X4.5 now? X1.5 means adding half to your total, and she has two X2.
