World’s Fastest Level up! ~as a Result of the Awakening of My Incompetence Skill [Transfer Within Dungeon], I Became the Strongest Without Being Restricted by the Rules of the Dungeon. - 1
Chapter 1 – The Day of Awakening
15th floor of D rank dungeon 【Yunagi Dungeon】
There were already more than 10 corpses of goblins lying around, leaving only three remaining. And I was dealing with these three goblins by myself.
The swing of my short sword slit the goblin’s throat. I rushed to the remaining two as the goblin collapsed with blood sprouting from its neck.
Although the two goblins attacked simultaneously, the attack wasn’t successful. Because even if I don’t look like it, I have been an adventurer for more or less than a year. Therefore, I have seen this kind of attack a million times.
“This is the finishing blow!”
After dodging the attack, I finished off the two goblins right away. Then, the familiar sound of the system reverberated through my mind.
『Experience Acquired – Level increased by 1』
“It’s finally here. Status open!”
It’s my first level up in five days. So, I opened the status screen right away.
Amane Rin – 19 Years old – Male – Level: 95
HP：785 / 820 MP：120 / 130
Skill: Transfer Within Dungeon Lv9・Body Reinforcement Lv3・Beginner Magic Lv3
Transfer Within Dungeon Lv9
MP Consumption: 2MP x Distance (M)
Conditions: Can only transfer within the dungeon where the caster is.
Transfer Distance: Up to 20 meters.
Activation Time: 3 sec x Distance (M)
Target Range: The caster and what the caster wears.
Indeed, my level has gone up from 94 to 95. In terms of status, I don’t feel that there is much difference as each status only rose a little bit.
However, looking at my status really made me feel depressed. Because I can see my incompetency in it.
“Usually in a game, level 95 should be relatively high. But in reality, it was at the most bottom… No, maybe it’s in the middle of it? The highest rank in the world’s level was over 100,000. Haa, I don’t think I can catch up.”
It was 20 years ago when dungeons appeared in the world. Those people who have been active on the frontlines since that time were the current top-ranked. Perhaps it was presumptuous for me, who has been an adventurer for only a year, to think about catching up to them.
“Wait. Isn’t Yunagi Dungeon giving 5 level-ups as a reward for a successful capture?”
After successfully capturing a dungeon, besides the capture reward, the adventurer also will be leveled up. The number of levels was determined by the dungeon, such as one level for E rank dungeons and 100 levels for A rank dungeons. And in the Yunagi Dungeon, it was 5 levels.
When hearing this, people may think it is more efficient to capture a dungeon many times than to earn experience from killing the monsters. However, there is a fundamental problem in carrying out that method.
Once a dungeon is captured, there is a one-week-long intermission before you can re-challenge it. I don’t know how but it is not possible to challenge other dungeons since the information about the adventurer’s dungeon capture is shared to dungeons all over the world.
In fact, dungeon capturing isn’t attractive for an adventurer whose primary aim is to earn money in a dungeon, like me.
“But right now, this is an exception as I will reach level 100 if I capture it.”
SP used to strengthen skills are given every 10 levels. And the amount of SP I would get from leveling up to level 100 was 100. That was the exact amount of SP I needed to level up my unique skill [Transfer Within Dungeon] from level 9 to 10. Although it depended on the skill, there are many skills that became more powerful after reaching level 10.
“Alright, my earnings will decrease as I won’t be actively capturing dungeons for a week, but you can’t solve a problem without making some sacrifices. Let’s go!”
I made up my mind and headed to the 20th floor, the lowest layer of Yunagi Dungeon.
The boss of Yunagi Dungeon is the ‘Twin-tailed beast’, a monster that skillfully uses its two tails to strike, and would be difficult to deal with until you got used to its attack pattern. However, this is the third time I have fought it. I fought calmly and was able to defeat it safely.
I didn’t know what I should do with the reward from capturing Yunagi Dungeon as it’s only a cheap magic stone and 5 level-ups that I mentioned earlier.
As expected, the sounds of the system reverberated through my mind after I defeated the boss. I can gain rewards without performing squats or victory poses. Yay! 
『Dungeon Capture Reward – Level increased by 5』
Amane Rin – 19 Years old – Male – Level: 100
HP: 650 / 860 MP: 80 / 140
Attack Power: 210
Mental Strength: 90
Skill: Transfer Within Dungeon Lv9・Body Reinforcement Lv3・Beginner Magic Lv3
I took in a deep breath as this moment today may have a big influence on my adventurer’s life.
“When I think back, many things happened this year.”
Immediately after graduating from high school, I took the qualifier test of an adventurer and challenged a dungeon. I, who was exposed to the magic power of the dungeon successfully acquired status with a unique skill ‘Transfer Within Dungeon.’
Initially, many people were surprised and had high expectations of the irregular power of being able to move freely inside a dungeon. However, various limitations were found after I had tried to use it, in the end, it was looked down as an incompetent skill because of its uselessness.
I was frustrated.
I wanted to prove it.
I wanted to say this skill doesn’t just amount to this.
That’s why, even when my peers steadily outgrew me, I chose to continue to act as an adventurer even when I needed to crawl on the ground. And this was the time to decide if my efforts will be rewarded or not!
“Well, here we go.”
I resolved myself and assigned all the SP to ‘Transfer Within Dungeon.’ Will it be the distance, activation time, or the target range that changes? Or maybe…
『Skill level of Transfer Within Dungeon has increased to 10』
『The condition will be changed』
『Transference only possible in the dungeon where the caster is → Transference is possible only in dungeons where the caster has set foot in』
It seems the reverberating sound in my mind had ended with that.
“Transference is possible only in dungeons where the caster has set foot in?”
It took me a while to digest the meaning of these words. And I understood it was not the results I wanted.
“That’s right… There is no way it will be that straightforward.”
Although I had various delusions like if the transferring distance became anywhere within the dungeon, if it doesn’t take any time to activate the skill, or if the targets being transferred can include other adventurers. But it seems it won’t be that easy.
Well, I don’t understand a bit about that. Even if I was told I could move to the dungeon I have set foot in… The distance between dungeons is at least a few kilometers apart. No matter how much the transferring distance increases from 20 meters, I think there won’t be a chance to use it. It’s a completely meaningless evolution.
I sighed with disappointment as my one-year’s worth of expectations was betrayed. Please pardon me with this. As I was being depressed, a light enveloped my body. It is a sign that the transfer magic to return to the surface was activating.
“Oops, that was close.”
I collected the magic stones from the capture reward and twin-tailed beast, and waited for the transfer magic to be activated.
Honestly, I’m so depressed to the point I wanted to cry in my bed for three days and nights. But I can’t stay like that forever.
“Level 20 is the next threshold where there is a possibility that the skill will undergo a significant evolution, huh. Even though I don’t know how long it would take, I can only do my best.”
I hit my cheeks with both of my hands to encourage myself. Simultaneously, the transfer magic activated, and I returned to the surface.
At this time, I had no idea about the true value of my unique skill [Transfer Within Dungeon] or the tremendous effect of the power gained by the evolution of the skill.
And it was one hour later when I knew about this.
