59: The Demon King of Otasaer, Yuri-kun!
“This is the best way to hold a hammer…!”
“Hmmm… I see…”
I nodded as I held the hammer. In front of me is the [beginner’s sword] that the senior craftsman gave me to practice with. I’m not sure what to do with it.
All right, I’ve had a few experiences and I’m getting the hang of it.
Thanks to the craftsmen players who were very eager to teach me how to blacksmith in this game, I now have a better understanding of how to do it.
So this is a rhythm game.
When the sword is heated and placed on the base, a portion of the blade will momentarily turn [red.] [green.] [yellow.] The light of [red] [green.
If you hit any of the flashing points at the right time when they appear, the weapon’s status will increase according to its color.
If you hit red, you get [Strength.] If you hit green, you get [Durability.] If you hit yellow, you get [Abnormality Rate.] and so on.
It’s supposed to light up about 15 times… The timing is very critical.
If it’s within 0.1 seconds, it’s a great success, but after 1 second, it’s a complete failure and has no effect. It is said that the ability may decrease.
Also, if you hit it between 0.7 seconds and 1 second, it will be judged as a petit failure, and the increase rate of ability value will be subtle and [self-destruct.]. The rate of increase of ability value is not so high, and a mysterious effect called [self-destruct.
The senior craftsman says, “That’s fatal. with a troubled look on his face.
“[Self-destruct.]”] If you think that 0.7 seconds has passed, it’s better not to hit it and miss completely.
It is only used on melee weapons such as swords and spears, but there is a low probability that the weapon will explode the moment it hits the target, and both the enemy and the user will take heavy damage.
I believe it deals triple the damage of the weapon… The explosion’s range is several meters, so it’s hard to escape in an instant. You could use it as a projectile, that you could, but a player with a high Muscle Strength value will do more damage if he wields it normally.”
“Oh, wow. By the way, do we lose the weapon when it explodes?”
“No, you’ll only have one durability value left. It looks like only the handle is left.
That’s when the crafters come in! [Weapon Repair.] which restores the durability of weapons in your Item Box!
I know it sounds a little too easy, but you can’t hunt without weapons. That’s the promise of the game.
By the way, it’s quite difficult to fix the armor, you have to take it all the way to the workshop…”
A senior craft-maker who talks a lot while making his glasses twinkle.
At first he was quite nervous to talk to me, but when I started to explain the work, he started to talk faster and faster.
Well, that’s how much he likes to make things.
Before I knew it, I was with the other crafters… “It’s not easy being an armorer…” “No, no… Weaponsmiths have a lot of responsibility too…” Even the decorator’s work is detailed and difficult…” I smile at him as he starts to talk about this and that.
All right, practice is over. I understand what you’ve been explaining.
Well then, let’s get on with it. Let’s do it!
I’m standing in front of the furnace, and a message appears in front of me. appeared in front of me.
Press it and choose the weapon you want to process from the item box to start the process. Your body will automatically move, take out the weapon, and start ramming it into the furnace.
The game only allows you to have the first weapon you choose, but that means that the craftsman player can’t do his job. That’s why this feature is there.
After a few seconds of being in the fire, your body pulls out a sword and places it on the pedestal. The craftsmen players roll their eyes in amazement as they see the sword blazing orange.
“AAAAAA? Don’t tell me that’s the Dineslave? ?
“Top class, powerful, and extremely expensive equipment! Yuri… are you going to mess with it? What if it fails? There’s a limit to how many times you can process a weapon!
I apologized a little to the screaming craftsmen.
I’m sorry, seniors. I came here knowing full well I’d fail.
“Guys, I’m gonna do something crazy, but I need you to keep your voices down.”
Ten seconds after it’s placed on the base, the work begins.
I see a few spots on the sword glow, and I dare to swing the hammer down just before a second has passed!
The result displayed in the window is… 0.8 seconds, a small failure! The sword’s power is increased a little, and at the same time, the disadvantage effect of [Self-destruct.] The disadvantage effect of [Self-destruct.
Yeah! That’s a big success for me!
“Aaaaahhh…? Yuri-dono, your timing is way off, that it is…!”
The seniors let out a small moan as it looked like they had failed from the first shot.
With them in the background… I thought I’d succeed this time and increase my power. Then it occurred to me.
I wonder what would happen if you keep giving the effect of [self-destruct.] over and over again in a row. over and over again.
There are many things that happen in this game by stacking numbers.
You gain skills by performing certain actions… and when we burned Pope Gregorion… the field anomalies got worse.
Maybe something will happen… With this thought in mind, I gave up the possibility of a big success and went for a small failure!
“Yo, ho, now!”
“What are you doing, Yuri? Yuri, what are you doing?
Sometimes you accidentally hit the target in 0.6 seconds, and sometimes you succeed and fail, but you keep repeating it over and over again.
And so at last, fifteen strokes… That’s when I hit my tenth failure. The weapon’s completion status appeared in front of me.
We’ve finished processing the weapon.
[Dineslave Double Twin Mark II Second.] (Yuri’s name): 40 more powerful. Special Effect [Large Explosion.] Gain!
[Explosion.] A high probability explosion occurs when the blade of the weapon hits. The explosion deals damage equal to 10 times the weapon’s power, leaving it with a durability value of 1.
“It’s done! It’s done! It’s done!
I was very happy with the result! I’m a very lucky guy, so a high probability of activation is something that would never happen to me.
The Dineslave was originally designed to be a horror… but now it’s filled with a reddish-black miasma… It’s like it’s going to destroy you if you touch it.
I like it! I like it! I’m a hero of light and I’ll be the strongest if I’m equipped with a weapon of darkness! I’ll put it in the box right away.
Well, I’m pretty happy with the way things ended… The seniors are in a pretty damp mood.
He looks at me with concern.
“Well… Yuri-dono… I don’t think it’s right for a beginner to go into battle with an extremely rare weapon…”
“Well, even weapons with self-destruct effects can be sold for a decent price with Dineslaves… Maybe…!”
“You’re too talented… No, it’s nothing, that it isn’t…!”
… I know it’s inevitable, but you seniors are under the mistaken impression that you’ve screwed up big time.
Hmm, maybe we should keep the exploding weapons a secret if we’re really… Well, they’ve been good to me.
Everyone was very kind to me, and I learned a lot from their knowledge and stories. I understood that battles are not the only way to play.
So let’s show them.
The craftsmen are treated as nothing more than the weakest of the weak… that there is no such thing as a useless being.
“… Watch yourselves. I don’t care if it’s a failure or a bad job, it’s all a matter of how you use it. [I want to be the best with this…] If you think that you’ll be the best with it, then you can get by with a bit of effort and a bit of ingenuity.
I went to the scarecrow in the courtyard that I could see from the window and activated my skill [Armed Warding].
Dineslave peeks out from the summoning circle behind him. The moment its miasma-cloaked tip catches the Scarecrow outside..,
“Go! Go! Go!
And then the Slayer’s Sword is ejected. It pierces its prey, leaving a jet-black shadow behind, and the next moment, it erupts in a huge explosion with a whoosh! The next moment, a huge explosion erupts with a booming sound!
The craftsmen scream. The air shakes so violently from the impact that a blast blows through the workshop and many are blown away.
But not everyone has their eyes closed. Men who devote themselves to making things, even in games, have opened their eyes wide to the power of my invention. I’ve invented.
“How powerful is it? The explosion has ten times the damage of the weapon, and I’ve increased it ten times with my damage-enhancing skills.
That means the power is amazing [multiplied by 100]. . You put the elements together, and this is what you get.”
Gulping artisan players. They stared at the courtyard burning behind me.
The size of the explosion could’ve burned down a courtyard the size of two tennis courts. That’s a real missile.
The damage increase rate is limited to ten times the weapon’s power, but the damage caused by a large explosion is only [ten times the weapon’s power.] . The damage of the explosion is the base value of the weapon’s damage.
Now multiply it by ten, and voila. We’ve got ourselves a hell of a weapon.
I’m going to leave now.
“Well then, senpai, now that I’ve learned the basics of making things, I’m going to move to a new place.
… Now it’s up to you what you want to do. You can either end up being licked by the combatants or you can use your spirit and perseverance to overcome the current situation.
I put down some of the finest materials and walked out of the workshop.
…at that moment, the roar of men’s enthusiasm echoes through the trees. It seems that they have decided on a direction.
“Amazing… What a mess it is, that it is! Why don’t we make something amazing like that?
“Ah…! Let’s get creative like Yuri-dono and make all the combatants gasp! Yes, like making armor that explodes…!”
Craftsmen who begin to speak in tones of hope and murder.
Listening to their voices with satisfaction, I went in search of a workshop that I could use.
