“Excellent. What an interesting fighting style.”
“Thank you very much.”
The way Vesta fought was that of an expert fighter.
Perhaps, It was her huge body that drove her like that.
What made it terrifying was how she used the two-handed sword to kill it with just one hand.
Well, according to her, she has fought a monster outside the labyrinth before.
A lot of things in a world where monsters exist is supposed to be different, I guess.
She is different from the weak Japanese.
“On the next surviving monster, use this spear to kill it.”
“I am going to have you try using a variety of weapons.”
I pass the spear to Vesta.
Or more like, I forced it on her.
Both Roxanne and I automatically obtained Knight when we got to Warrior Lv30.
To get the Knight job, I think it may be necessary to defeat monsters using spear.
Apparently, the warriors aspiring to be knights train with spears.
Vesta, along with the steel sword, hands over the wooden shield.
It seems she will be using both her hands for the spear.
As expected, is it hard to wield it with just one hand?
The Cheep Sheep that survived my spell, Vesta challenges it.
Big Vesta spins the Sacred Spear.
She is actually spinning it above her head.
She is like a hero from the three kingdoms era.
If someone like Guan Yu were to appear, I would cry out loud, indeed.
Vesta rushes at the monster, and swings the Sacred Spear down.
Cheep Sheep gets smashed down.
Another single blow!?
It is most likely a coincidence.
However, there was no new job, even though she finished it off with spear.
No Knight, as expected, but not even Dragon Knight?
“Great. Next time, try fighting bare-handed.”
“It will be a little difficult, though.”
“I think I will be fine.”
After receiving the dropped item and the Sacred Spear, I see Vesta off to the next battle.
Vesta fights a Cheep sheep bare-handed.
Vesta strikes. Cheap sheep returns the favor with a body slam.
Hoping for no damage was too much, I guess.
[Plating] and [Heal], I cast both on her again.
I don’t know how much recovery she requires, but for now, I cast it only once.
Vesta dodges the next body slam, and slams her fist into the sheep’s flank.
The monster charges at her again, but Vesta manages to dodge it again.
Looking at Vesta and the Cheep Sheep, they look like a girl playing with her dog.
Vesta hits the sheep on its head.
Oops, that can no longer be called playing.
It would have been ‘pet abuse’ had that been a dog.
The monster stands back up, and attacks Vesta again.
Vesta receives its attack and counters it with a punch.
Cheep Sheep stumbles, and collapses.
As expected, it was really hard fighting bare-handed.
It might have been comfortable watching from the sideline, but for Vesta, who was fighting, it was a furious fight.
“Well done. For now, you better get some rest. Call me when you think you are ready.”
“No need. It only scratched me a little. I think I am alright.”
Eh? Was it just my imagination?
I thought Cheep sheep assaulted her without holding back.
“If you say you’re fine then you must be, I guess.”
“That aside, you can even use recovery magic! That is amazing.”
It was because I got the Monk job when I fought bare-handed before. Right now, even you have it.
I cast Plating on her again.
With this, the fighting bare-handed experiment is over.
Now, the only weapon left is hammer. But so far, hammer was relevant only to Master Smith?
Even I didn’t get any related job from using it.
Since Master Smith is a racial job of dwarves, Vesta won’t be able to get it.
“Do you know what is required to become a dragon knight?”
“Dragon Knight? Only the brave dragonkin can obtain that job. It is believed that you can become one when you fight monsters all alone.”
“I don’t know much details of it since it is racial job, even though I was reading a job-related book in the library yesterday.”
Vesta and Sherry answer.
Was Sherry gathering information relating to the jobs for us?
“There is no helping it since it is a racial job.”
“I am sorry.”
“Was there anything interesting there?”
“Yes, there was a job I have never heard about before. If I am not mistaken, it is called Gambler.”
Is there such a job?
I have not seen it so far.
I wonder how can I become one.
Is gambling even common here?
Maybe, something like stabbing a monster with a toothpick in my mouth until it dies?
If I do that, will I be able to become a dragon knight?
Since it is a dragonkin tribe’s racial job, I can’t become one.
I got absorbed just thinking about it.
Or maybe, I need to visit Konpira shrine?
I will probably die.
Like they say.
An Idiot can not be cured unless they die.
“You know about it? It is my first time hearing this word, Gambler.”
“Is that so? You know anything in this regard, Vesta?”
“I don’t know.”
Even Vesta doesn’t know?
Since it is being translated as Gambler, it doesn’t seem to be an unknown word.
“Is it something like a hidden job for the people from the back alley?”
“I see. It was indeed written that it’s similar to Thief. Perhaps, it is a job related, somehow, to thieves.”
“Are you sure it was not just random scribbles?”
Can you really trust something written as ‘similar to Thief’?
Maybe it was just something written by someone on their dying bed?
“I don’t know. ‘I discovered an astonishing way to obtain this job, but there is not enough space to write it.’ was written inside.”
Is it Fermat’s theorem? (TN: Fermat was a french mathematician)
Write it down properly next time!
It is a really serious matter.
“It is alright, perhaps.”
“But there is one thing I still didn’t get. Strangely, it was written that it is also related to Bounty Hunter, too. It could really be just a prank.”
“Oh. No, maybe it is not, after all.”
When she said ‘Bounty Hunter’, I got it.
The Bounty Hunter skill, [Dead or Alive]. (TN: The skill name has been changed from Ignore Life and Death / Transcending Life and Death to Dead or Alive)
If you look at the name carefully, and the fact that you need to select a target to invoke it, Wouldn’t that make [Dead or Alive] a single death blow skill?
But I have yet to succeed.
Maybe, it is a kind of skill that has a certain rate of success?
It’s a gamble whether you can kill the target or not.
If it is gamble, then it is part of gambling world.
Maybe, the condition to acquire Gambler is successfully activating Dead or Alive skill? That is what I think.
“Oh, did you realize something from that?”
“No, I am not sure yet. But it was a good hint, nevertheless. Thank you.”
“It wasn’t much.”
I haven’t been successful with Dead or Alive skill thus far.
I think it is highly possible that the success rate is related to the level.
If any idiot could kill any monster without any limitation or restriction, Dead or Alive would be a broken skill.
Gambler seems to be a difficult-to-get job.
You need to level Warrior up to Lv30 first to get Bounty Hunter.
After that, you need to level up Bounty Hunter to increase the success rate of Dead or Alive skill.
It is also possible that I need to level up Thief as well.
Leveling up Thief in addition to Warrior and Bounty Hunter.
I doubt it will be generally known.
However, there is a compatibility between Thief and Bounty Hunter.
If a thief quits, they can work as a bounty hunter.
A bounty hunter can cross the line and fall to a thief’s level.
Both are likely to happen.
There seems to be a person who managed to fulfill the condition and became a Gambler.
Since he was not able to publicly announce that he was a thief, I can understand that he could only write it in a book in the corner of the library.
For now, I can try to aim for it and see how it goes.
Because the job is difficult to obtain, I’m not sure yet whether I’ll be successful or not.
For the time being, Dragon Knight is the priority.
Since you need to fight alone, will killing a monster by yourself meet the requirement to acquire the Dragon Knight job?
I bring out Durandal.
“Vesta, can you try fighting a monster by yourself using this sword?”
If she were to use Durandal, even if the first blow didn’t work. the second one would surely kill it.
She will be able safely fight alone.
“Umm… This is the sword Master always uses, right?”
“Yes, it is.”
“Even though you have never let me use it.”
Roxanne complains in a low voice.
This is troublesome.
“Well… because it is a two-handed sword.”
“It is not like I can’t use a two-handed sword, at all.”
“T-Then, do you want to try it, Roxanne?”
“Are you fine with it?”
I am the one who needs to ask if you’re fine with it.
However, Roxanne’s eyes were sparkling when I looked at her.
I can’t help it.
“We can try it in order, I guess.”
Roxanne takes Durandal exultantly.
She holds it like it is something very important.
She looks pleased. That’s good, I guess.
Roxanne slowly pulls the sword out.
And advances just like that.
“Good. With this sword, go and kill it.”
Cheep Sheep targets Roxanne.
Roxanne rushes to the monster, and swings Durandal down.
The sheep dies with the first blow.
“Amazing. Even I managed to kill the monster in a single blow. To have such an amazing weapon as this one, as expected of Master.”
Roxanne hands over the dropped item and Durandal.
Rather, it should be I to say ‘as expected of Roxanne’.
Being a Knight Lv20.
“Next, would Sherry like to try it?”
“Here you go.”
I hand Sherry Durandal. Roxanne guides us to the next monster.
Would everyone like to try it, after all?
I don’t think there is a chance to obtain anything expect for Dragon Knight. ‘It is a waste of time’ — is what I want to say.
Since even I don’t have any related job, so it most likely is useless, really.
Sherry cuts the monster in half.
Her level is higher than Roxanne’s, who switched her job midway. Also, because Master Smith has a job effect ‘Increase in Strength’, her physical attack power will be high, of course.
It is natural for it to be done in with the first strike.
“What an incredible sword. Anyways, with this sword, will we get any new job?”
“Nope. You will not get anything.”
“Is that so? You hold truly an amazing sword, nonetheless.”
As you would expect from Sherry.
She understands why I am having them partake in such activities.
“Does Miria want to try, too?”
As expected, Miria also kills it in single blow.
“How was it?”
Miria’s ears stand erect. She returns Durandal while staring at it with great interest.
This has turned into a sword exhibition.
With this, I have exposed in broad daylight that my ability to kill monsters was all thanks to Durandal.
No, not yet. It is not an established fact yet.
“Vesta, try it now.”
Even with Villager Lv5, Vesta defeated the monster in one blow.
With this, there is no longer any room for doubt.
It was all thanks to Durandal.
Even though it has been established as fact, Vesta acquires the Dragon Knight Job.
Rather than killing a monster final attack, the condition is to kill a monster all by yourself from the start.
The reason being, it will be difficult even for a dragonkin to kill a monster in one hit.
Dragon Knight Lv1.
Effects | Medium Increase in Endurance | Small Increase in Endurance | Minute Increase in Endurance
Skills | Dual Wielding | Critical Outbreak | Damage Reduction
There is some terrifying deviation in job effects.
What is… that?
As you would expect from a job with such a chuuni name.
And these skills, they are even more amazing.
That there is a skill called Dual Wielding, is it perhaps impossible for normal people to wield two swords?
And with this Critical Outbreak skill?
There is an Increase in Critical Hit Rate skill in my bonus incantations.
I didn’t feel any Critical or Outbreak while using Increase in Critical Hit Rate.
Perhaps, without having Critical Outbreak, it is impossible to use Increase in Critical Hit Rate?
Is Increase in Critical Hit Rate skill useless except for dragonkin?
Nope. There may be another job with Critical Outbreak skill. That’s what I want to believe!
“What kind of skill is Damage Reduction?”
I can understand, though, what it means to some degree.
“You are asking me? I have never heard it before.”
“I have heard about Physical Damage Reduction and Magic Damage Reduction skills, but as for Damage Reduction skill, I have never heard about it before.”
It seems neither Sherry nor Vesta know about it.
Is it perhaps a passive skill?
Rather than the type that needs to be invoked, is it possible that it always reduces the damage received?
As you would expect from a job with such a cool chuuni name.
“When you say Damage Reduction, doesn’t something strange happen?”
“Damage Reduction? No, nothing strange.”
I have set Dragon Knight Lv1 as Vesta’s job, but nothing seems to be happening.
So it is a passive skill, after all.
It would be strange for nothing to happen if it were an active skill.
“Dragon Knight, what kind of job is it?”
“A job held by only the righteous amongst the dragonkin tribe. It’s a job they wield to protect their lord and friends.”
I see. Does it mean that a dragon knight is basically a knight?
“Dragon Knight is a job that excels in defense. It is believed that the stability and safety of a party increases if they have a dragon knight.”
Sherry further explains.
No wonder. With that much Increase in Endurance, it will surely excel in defense.
So the three of them will form the line of defense.
Dragon Knight is a job that specializes in defense, huh?
The job effects are shared by the whole party.
Being a dragon knight, she can take a hit, surely.
But I am still not sure if Damage Reduction will work for the whole party or just her.
Since our party’s main attack force is my magic, it may be better to have a job specialized in defense.
I will leave Vesta’s job as Dragon Knight.
