Episode 47: Rookie hunter ④
Lena is helping me to pick up the pieces of the iron golem which was blown away. It might still be of use if we give it to the uncle blacksmith. Fortunately the magic stone is unscratched. It was a perfect magic stone of rank 4. The magic stones from the other golems were ordinary and of rank 3. We only found 2 since the other one was caught in the «explosion» and melted. I almost send another flying chop to her.
Even so, did these golems not have any skills? I couldn’t deprive anything from them. Seems like deeper in the dungeon there will be mithril golem and adamantite golem but if they lack skills, I already lost my interest.
“From 21F monster from the orc race will be our enemies. Nina, give your daggers to me, I’ll enchant them. ”
” My dagger? No problem~”
Sword breaker (grade 5): MP absorption, sharpness up, attack up
Black steel dagger (grade 5): HP absorption and attack up
” This is amazing. I never see someone have weapons with so much enchantments. ” (Nina)
” .. It is because you’re in close combat, you need extra. ” (Lena)
I thought Lena was jealous but when I asked her she doesn’t need any enchantments. Maybe I should wait until she got a better staff.
” You guys, wait here first. I will return in about 5 minutes. ”
” Why? ” (Lena)
” There is no danger from monsters, but if the trio from yesterday is there, the situation may get bad. ”
Lena and Nina didn’t look convinced but this is necessary.
I warped to 21F using the warp crystal then spread out my «heaven’s net»
” Alright, there is no problem. ”
” Yup, I couldn’t find them using my [awareness] either. ” (Nina)
” Eh, Nina why are you here? ”
Nina didn’t reply but Lena did instead. ” It’s just like that. ”
I can only facepalm. It seems they entered this floor not long after I warped.
” What if they ambushed us here? ”
That delayes our exploration, because I need to give the two of them a preaching. However in the middle of the process I caught the pressence of monsters.
” Incoming, four monsters. ”
It was three orc soldiers and an orc general. Rather than attacking blindly, the orc general is leading them.
” Be careful, remember to keep your cooperation with Lena. ”
The narrow passage was completely blocked by their bodies, however that doesn’t make Nina fall into disadvantageous position. With a thin thread, she throws it and wrapped it around one of the orc’s leg. When she pulled it, one of the orcs immediately falls down.
” Buooo… ”
The other orc is trying to cut the thread by biting it and one jumped at Nina. Nina easily dodged him and with ease, the neck of the attacking orc is falling to the ground. Lena on the other hand used «earth lance» to kill the two orcs whom are in a weird position. They’re directly skewered together. All of them died without a chance for me to deprive. I won’t let the orc general go like that.
I casted a simple «wind blade» to give me an opportunity to approach him, however it was stopped easily by his steel hammer. After that he followed up with a [warcry]. I also used my own [warcry] to negate the effect. Seeing his skill failing, his [warcry] level must be lower than mine. I beheaded him easily after depriving the skills. I improved my [hammer mastery (passive)] to [lvl 4] and [hammer technique (active)] to [lvl 3]. From the orc soldiers, we only managed to get an ordinary magic stone.
Then only after encountering more orc monsters, we finally see a new enemy.
|Enhanced nose:||LV 2|
|Space-time magic:||LV 1|
I almost cried out. By using [alchemy], item bags were made using a ghouls stomach. It wasn’t the ghoul as if in the ghost, it was one that devours the dead. In exchange for it’s superior sense of smell, it couldn’t see. They feast on dead bodies and were nicknamed dungeon scavanger. It was attracted to the dead bodies of the orc soldiers and started to eat the remains which are more than twice its body size.
Of course while it isn’t looking at me, I deprive the [space-time magic] before I end its life.
(TL note: got better names for this?)
After that I used [skinning] on the ghoul and carefully carved out the stomach.
“What are you going to do with that? ” Nina is looking at me curiously.
However when I explained it to Nina, the ghoul becomes our hunting priority and I keep on collecting their stomachs. With this I can create a lot of item bags.
However when we reached the 25F, I notice something odd. «heaven’s net» or [awareness] couldn’t be spread far.
“this is funny~” Nina also seemed to noticed it.
“Lena, do you feel something? ”
” Yes, there is a faint trace of magic being released from the wall, ground and the ceiling. ”
This is weird, for a low rank labyrinth of golgo to have this kind of aura. There are no monster in this level and soon we see only a big room in front. I feel something bad.
” Quick, let’s get on to the next floor. ”
” Yes.. ”
” Yu, we’re caught. ”
Near the exit, it was the guy from yesterday.
” Yo, where are you going in such a hurry? ”
The timing was perfect since detection won’t work in this floor. They must have planned it.
” You guys were promising rookies, we won’t let you get away. ”
The other two come out from behind. Unlike yesterday, their equipment today is appropriate for their level. When I checked their status, I can feel a cold shiver on my back.
