Chapter 141 – A Great Shield and A Hardening Pill
After subjugating the High Ogre, the sound of the system reverberated in my mind.
『Extra boss has been defeated』
『Experience acquired – Level has increased by 1683』
『Dungeon capture reward – Level has increased by 100』
『Extra boss capture reward – Level has increased by 200』
The total levels I gained from the subjugation reward was 300 levels, which is actually quite a lot. Well, the increased levels I gained from experience points was more than that, though.
Then, the sound of the system continues.
『We have confirmed that this dungeon was captured for the first time』
『We have confirmed that the extra boss has been defeated』
『We have confirmed that the remaining HP of all the challengers is more than 50%』
『Bonus reward – 【Great Shield of Total Blocking】 will be given』
Those are the last announcements the system gave us, and in exchange, a candy-like thing and a great shield appeared. Naturally, I used [Appraisal] on the two.
【Hardening Pill】 1
・Increase the strength of the entity by 30% for 60 seconds.
・Cooldown time: 10 minutes.
【Great Shield of Total Blocking】
・Recommended level to use: 40,000
・Temporarily increase the user’s endurance upon receiving physical attacks and mental strength when receiving magic attacks. It is also possible to share the increased status to a target in a specific range.
“… what a ridiculous piece of equipment”
Looking at the result of the appraisal, I subconsciously muttered.
Even the hardening pill alone, which should be the original reward for capturing the dungeon, already possesses a surprising effect. And now, the effect of the other bonus reward, Great Shield of Total Blocking, made me even more shocked.
It possesses a very extraordinary ability that could increase the defense of the user every time he is attacked by an enemy, and it could even share it to another person. Unfortunately, the recommended level to use it is very high, and the size of the shield is large. Only tanks who specialized in defense could equip this so large shield that could even hide a woman with small stature completely. It was a size that was difficult to use alongside a sword on the other hand.
…. At least, I won’t have a chance to use it, as I was fighting by utilizing the number of moves and speed.
Which means, it looks like it’s better to give this to someone who specializes in tanking, but, I wonder if there is a tank close to me… Ah! This is bad, I was too absorbed in the appraisal result and forgot that I was currently in the middle of joint capture. When I nervously directed my gaze toward them, they stared at me silently, with an expression that couldn’t conceal their astonishment.
“Amane, what on earth are you…”
Yagami tried to ask something while still being stunned, but shut his mouth all of a sudden. Most likely just as he mentioned before, he remembered there was a rule not to pry into my power.
And if their leader, Yagami, stopped asking questions, there is no way the other members could ask either. As follows, such a strange atmosphere flowed throughout the room.
At any rate, presently, I don’t think I can make an excuse this time. With that in mind, I instantly thought about how much information I should disclose…
However, the next person who speaks was Yagami, not me.
“Good grief, I never thought I would be surprised so much in one day. But, I have painfully understood that the scene that I saw earlier was unmistakably a reality.”
After stopping for a moment, Yagami continued.
“Amane, let me ask you one thing. It seems you have only been an adventurer for a year but, you haven’t dived into a dungeon before that, right?”
You didn’t dive into the dungeon illegally and raise your level before you become 18 years old, which is the minimum age one could become an adventurer, right? This was surely the question that Yagami had in his mind.
“Yes. I have never broken the law.”
Well, I leveled up in a loophole way, though. But as expected I didn’t really need to say that much.
Then, Yagami silently closed his eyes and,
“Then, I won’t ask anything more. However, I actually already knew the answer from the beginning but… There is no way someone who uses such an improper way bother to expose his unique skill to the public and end up being looked down as an incompetent,”
Yagami said the second half of his sentence in a very quiet voice, making me unable to hear it…that’s what I wanted to say, but I ended up hearing it because an adventurer had excellent five senses.
Un… from that sentence, it seems he already knew what my unique skill is. But well, it’s not like I am hiding that, though. The problem is actually beyond that, which is the fact that I could level up while ignoring the intermission by using that skill.
It is normally impossible for someone who has been an adventurer for only a year to defeat a level 40,000 monster. Thus, there is a high chance that someone with a high perception could arrive at that answer. That is why, although it’s not like I doubt Yagami and the others, but as expected, I can’t reveal this yet.
When I was thinking about that, everyone including Yagami lowered their heads in front of me before I knew it.
“Amane, you have saved this party not just once but twice. That’s why, thank you very much.”
Following Yagami, the others also said their thanks. But, I wonder why my back became itchy because of that.
“Please raise your head. Rather than that, let’s talk about how to share the rewards.”
“This time, Amane has contributed the most to the boss’ subjugation. No, rather than that, it’s more of an achievement that was achieved by Amane’s power alone. Therefore, Amane should receive all the rewards.”
“… Is that fine? I’m actually fine giving this shield since I can’t use it myself.”
“Unfortunately, no one in our guild can use a shield with the recommended level of 40,000. You could sell it, give it to an acquaintance, or use it as you like. For us, the level up rewards are enough.”
Come to think of it, the level up reward was given to everyone in here, huh. It was common sense for an adventurer, but I forgot about it because I’m usually alone. For them, a 300 level-up undoubtedly would be a valuable reward.
If they’re satisfied with that then… I guess I don’t have to be stubborn to give this to them.
“Understood. Then, I will receive these two. And then–”
When I tried to say other things, everyone here was surrounded by a faint light.
“Looks like it’s time to return. Let’s leave the talk for later. Before that, let’s store the huge sword and the corpse of the High Ogre.”
Yagami stored the loots in a hurried manner. And when I was observing that, I noticed a gaze that was directed at me. When I turned my face in that direction, for some reason, Shinonome-san looked at me with her head in the clouds.
“Shinonome-san? Is there something wrong?”
“Eh!? N-no, nothing. I was just a bit spaced out”
“? Okay then…”
In front of me, who was convinced by that explanation, Shinonome-san put her hands on her cheeks and muttered “That’s right. Although he looks a bit cool when fighting, there is no way I can seriously fall for a boy younger than me, right? Un, of course it should be like–”
Thinking that it’s better not to touch that subject, I took my eyes off her. Thereupon, within a few seconds after that, the transfer magic was activated.
Like that, our joint capture has come to an end safely.
