Chapter 104 1/4

Now if that’s not overpowered, I don’t know what is.

Caution: Item description porn.

1/4

Naofumi:”Ugggh.”

I groan after the three of them left the meeting room.
After calming down and thinking about it, I couldn’t help but grimace.
I’m thinking about all of the information drawn out of those guys.
But, I have no idea how to judge what is the truth, and what is a lie.

……As I compile their claims on a memo, I groan again.

It is common for us to absorb the dropped items from demons.
Come to think of it, I forgot to explain the reason for dismantling the parts.
Well, they should be able to understand this much.
Next is weapon copy. It seems this is where the differences in the games those guys played starts.
When a weapon is already found from the same system, it becomes possible to equip that weapon after unsealing it.
Besides compounding, the weapon can also act as a proxy for other creation skills.

All of their claims match up until here.

Let’s come to a conclusion on the claims of their respective strengthening methods after seeing it myself. I don’t know what each respective differences in characteristics their weapons have compared to my shield.
There is no game that I can use as a model, not to mention it feels like I’m reading an unfinished book.
……Though they also took a stab at my shield’s power to train companions……

Ren.
Level dependence.
Proficiency: The more the same weapon is used, the more the power increases.
Energy Grant: Hidden power can be unlocked by using energy granted from resetting the weapon’s skill proficiency. Additionally, items absorbed into the weapon can be converted into energy.
Rarity Increase: By using energy, it is possible to increase the weapon’s rarity. Overall ability will improve.

Motoyasu.
Everything is decided by his weapon. The weapon’s original strength doesn’t matter much, everything relies on Spirit Enchants. The necessary stats are needed to wield though.
Tempering: Equipment can be strengthened with the use of ore.
Spirit Enchant: By giving a weapon the fragment of a demon’s soul to absorb, special powers can be granted.
Status Enchant: Stats can be increased.

Itsuki.
Everything is decided by bonuses granted by a weapon’s rarity.
Reinforcing: A weapon’s power can increase by using a specific type of ore.
Item Enchant: Items absorbed into the weapon provides energy that has a chance to increase the weapon’s attack percentage.
Job Level: Stats can be boosted up by absorbing items acquired from specific demons.
(Tl note: ドーピング Doping, I couldn’t really find a way to fit this into the sentence without it sounding weird. Example: Stats can be doped up by absorbing……” This makes me cringe for some reason.)

Something like this.
It’s falling apart splendidly.
There’s Energy for Reinforcement, Tempering, Skill Proficiency, and Rarity is also covered.
There’s also as many as three enchantment systems.

In the first place, all three of them are from worlds where games are common, but each one of them is operating with a different game in mind.
Moreover, even the genres are different.
VRMMO, Ordinary MMO, and Console Games.
I don’t know VR well, but MMOs and Console games can’t possibly have the same system.
Due to bad experiences with fan games.

For some reason or another, there was a similar system used in my old world.
If I think about it like that……I can say that their insistence of knowledge on other games is a lie.
But……Is that really the case?

I turn my eyes to the shield.
I think that the influence of previous owners has left the legendary weapons with these results.
I mean that would explain the curse series.
The series couldn’t be found when I looked through the skill tree before, it only appeared at the time I thought Firo died.

I see. It’s influenced by……The heart.

It may not have appeared if I denied it from the beginning.
Weapon Copy…… Since all three of them agreed to it, it’s not a lie.
The drops were the same. However, I did not understand it.
I open the weapon icon to investigate.
……Of course It’s still not there.

Is it in a completely different category? Is the system structure different from those guys?
Legendary Shield.
Negative…… Of course.
I denied it somewhere within my heart.
Perhaps……Is that why I can’t do the things that those guys can do?
If I look at it from a purely objective standpoint, my field of view should widen right?

There are drops! There is copying!
I recall those three at the same time. It’s not impossible.
Believe it…… Believe in it. Imagine the screen with the drop list that pops up when a demon is defeated.

I press the system menu on the shield.
The menu opens with a ring.
A window appeared with parts of dismantled demons, and other items that were absorbed pop up.

Naofumi:”What the hell is this!?”

It seems the power of believing exists……Didn’t me being cautious and skeptical narrow down my own possibilities?
……Somehow, when I press the item menu, I can open it and verify what the monsters dropped.
Ah, a plant that can be used for magic power water came out. The materials for soul healing water also appeared……
Various things just appear. It would be amazing if everything was pulled out.
Beside that……Ah, there’s a considerable amount of garbage. There are some demon entrails too.

I turn my attention to Itsuki’s ore.
That guy really purchased that ore. He even explained how to use it.
I can’t help but try to believe it.

It exists. He was even angry to that extent. He shouldn’t have told a lie.
……However, nothing shown up.
I am denying this somewhere.
I just don’t believe that a liar will tell the truth.
Is the power of my trust not enough? Feels like an anime for children……
However……I’ll still believe it.

Shadow:”Hero of the Shield-dono?”

Shadow speaks to get my attention. But I decided that in order to preserve my life, I started a glaring contest with the shield.
Is it acceptable that you were deceived? You legendary shield. Believing helps. I will absolutely never lose.
Believe it!

Itsuki’s Reinforcing happened. There is also Item Enchant.
Otherwise, we are only slightly stronger than the usual adventurers.

I believed in the idea, and pressed the icon on the shield.
ZaZa…..The icon distorted, but only for an instant.
The next moment.
With a ding, an item for Reinforcement appeared.

Naofumi:”Alright!”

I let the shield absorb the ore I got from Rishia, and let the shield search for the corresponding request.
Found it.

Shark Bite Shield 1/20
Ability Unsealed…… Equipment Bonus: On Board Combat Skills 1.
Special Effect: Shark’s Fang.

To experiment, I reinforced the Shark Bite Shield.
I see, looks like reinforcing is easy, with the number 20 appearing next to it.
This enhancement method is somewhat similar to a game in my world called Monster Hunter.
I mean…… Since there is a number in place, I can avoid jumping to conclusions.
I did not suffer so far without reason. There are many who use a shield and move sluggishly…… It would be a bad habit to only use strong weapons. A combination of a shield and a one-handed sword is by far the strongest, with it being easy to move, and strong to defend.
Though for convenience, in that game, a the bow was exactly that. Perhaps it might be similar. Well, the difference would be magic since it didn’t exist,

Let’s use the energy from an item that was absorbed before.
……There are a variety of effects.
Oh? From the blue shark’s intestines, I discover an aquatic monster damage mitigation skill. Let’s try it out.
The probability of the first try will absolutely succeed.

Shark Bite Shield 1/20
Ability Unsealed…… Equipment Bonus: On Board Combat Skills 1.
Special Effect: Shark’s Fang.
Item Enchant Level 1: 2% Damage Reduction of Aquatic Monsters .

Since there still a little left, I’ll try it again.
Ah, a failure! It became zero. But, I’ll continue.
I got it to level 2.

Shark Bite Shield 1/20
Ability Unsealed…… Equipment Bonus: On Board Combat Skills 1.
Special Effect: Shark’s Fang.
Item Enchant Level 2: 3% Damage Reduction of Aquatic Monsters .

While getting carried away and apply more, I stopped at seven. The success rate for 8 is rather low.
Shark Bite Shield 1/20
Ability Unsealed…… Equipment Bonus: On Board Combat Skills 1.
Special Effect: Shark’s Fang.
Item Enchant Level 7: 16% Damage Reduction of Aquatic Monsters .

……This will be amazing when fighting against aquatic type demons.
At any rate, another gauge exists, I think Itsuki’s word for it was Job Level. Let’s try it out.

Defense Job Level 1
Defense Gauge 0/5

A large number of the internal organs from demons was absorbed, and the button was pressed repeatedly.
It looks like after 1, the rate the gauge rises slows down.

Defense Gauge 5/5
Gauge up! [Defense +1]
Defense Job Level 2

And the Defense Gauge now displays 0/6.
Furthermore, when I wanted to add another item, a cool down time appeared.
It seem it is necessary to increase it regularly.
Quite long-term. Though, it doesn’t seem too ridiculous to gather.
At any rate, the others probably didn’t lie either.

First of all is Ren.
While praying as strongly as that time with Itsuki, I open a menu, I habitually use the Chimeric Viper Shield.

Chimeric Viper Shield 0/30 C
Ability Unsealed…… Equipment Bonus: Skill [Change Shield] Detoxification Compounding Improvement Poison Resistance (Intermediate)
Special Effect: Snake’s Fang (Intermediate) Hook
Proficiency: 100

Somehow, the stats have already risen enormously, but……
Isn’t it already increased by about 1.5 times? It’s defensive power alone is formidable.
It seems the maximum is 100.
As I was playing around the menu with my finger.

Would you like to reset skill Proficiency?

A system message popped-up.
I press “Yes” with some hesitation.
Then, the ability reverts back to the shield that I knew.

2000 Skill Energy Acquired.

……I select the Chimeric Viper as the target.
Ah, insufficient……The requiment is 4000.
For the time being, I convert enough Skill Energy to upgrade.
I hear the sound of something being filled.

Chimeric Viper Shield (Awakened) 0/30 C
Ability Unsealed…… Equipment Bonus: Skill [Change Shield] Detoxification Compounding Improvement Poison Resistance (High)
Special Effect: Snake’s Fang (High) Long Hook
Proficiency: 0

Its base ability went up considerably.
What is this!?

Do I increase the rarity Now? C is an abbreviation of Common.
As I thought, Energy is still insufficient. Let’s continue to convert and increase it.

Challenge!
Failure!

Like I’d fail!

Success!

Chimeric Viper Shield (Awakened) 0/30 UC
Ability Unsealed…… Equipment Bonus: Skill [Change Shield] Detoxification Compounding Improvement Poison Resistance (High)
Special Effect: Snake’s Fang (High) Long Hook
Proficiency: 0

UC……Uncommon.
The ability has improved by about 1.2 times.
After several more challenges, I managed to raise it up to R. With just That It’s ability went up considerably.
The amount of increase is abnormal. The Proficiency also increases……Wait a Minute!

Furthermore, there is also Motoyasu’s claim……I believe and open the menu. I already believe all of it greedily.
Shit……There isn’t any ore that Motoyasu used for Tempering.
Let’s test out Spirit Enchant.
Since I gathered a large amount of demon soul fragments from Magenta Frogs on this island, let’s use it!

Chimeric Viper Shield (Awakened) 0/30 R
Ability Unsealed…… Equipment Bonus: Skill [Change Shield] Detoxification Compounding Improvement Poison Resistance (High)
Special Effect: Snake’s Fang (High) Long Hook
Proficiency: 0
Magenta Frog Spirit: 16% Damage Reduction of Poison Monsters.

Let’s also try out Status Enchant.
Do you use these materials?……Oh! The results are random.
The Result, magical power was added.

Chimeric Viper Shield (Awakened) 0/30 R
Ability Unsealed…… Equipment Bonus: Skill [Change Shield] Detoxification Compounding Improvement Poison Resistance (High)
Special Effect: Snake’s Fang (High) Long Hook
Proficiency: 0
Magenta Frog Spirit: 16% Damage Reduction of Poison Monsters.
Status Enchant: Magic Power +20

Huge! That amount of Magical Power is huge!
Oh, I can reset. However, since the amount of materials I used isn’t small, let’s stop for now.
The shield has become remarkably stronger than before.
Though the stats are a little messy, it is still a plus for me.
Though I was bewildered about Itsuki and Ren’s similar description of Rare and Rarity.
It wouldn’t be wrong to remember it.
Let’s take the opportunity to check Help.

Naofumi:”……”

Sure enough, everything is added.
This is good……I can even use the systems from old net games which I know.

Naofumi:”Huh?”

No matter how much I think or pray, I have no idea what to say to them.
Since I already strengthened myself considerably already, any complaints won’t be convincing.
Anyway……

Naofumi:”Shadow……”
Shadow:”What degojaru?”
Naofumi:”Notify the other heroes. Tell them that everything said here was true. No one told a lie. Tell them that unless they truly believe each other, it won’t work.”

To think that such a thing would happen. That reminds me, the queen did say so before.
The pope’s replica weapon only had 1/4th the power of the real thing.
Due to the results here, I can understand. No, that already exceeded the worst-case scenario.
If they stalled to put the replica in its original form, and wasn’t outwitted……It would have been impossible.

After I give advice to Shadow, I leave the meeting room and head back to mine.

    Hmm well I appreciate the translators helping out with this project and all and I know they have lives to attend to, but why feel a lot slower when there were fewer translators on this project? I heard there is suppose to be 5 now right? Before when there was like 1 or 2, Bakahou was churning out like 2-5 chapters a day. Now its like 1 or 2 if we’re lucky. Just wondering if its some sort of logistic issue or problem splitting up the chapters.
