Chapter 61: The Girl who couldn’t go up to C-Rank…..
Yuto couldn’t hide his shock.
The “doorway” Dannan mentioned would not be an ordinary door - from Dannan’s attitude, Yuto was certain of it.
In this case, the new door wasーーa new doorway to an Instant Dungeon.
Yuto: “.........I see…..” With Dannan’s information, Yuto was finally starting to understand the magnitude of the changes that were coming.
A similar situation occurred quite a while back.
Yuto: “Then in this case, the incident with the new door discovery will cause a major change for us.”
Eliz: “A major change, yes?”
Eliz, who wasn’t aware of the previous major change, tilts her head.
Seeing that, Yuto nods slowly.
Yuto: “This actually happened before I was an Adventurer, but there was another major change of events. Right now, there are 6 doors going from E-Rank to S-Rank, right? Well, before that change, there were only 5 doors.”
Eliz: “Huh? Then, what was the Insta-Dungeons like at that time?” Yuto: “There were only doors going from E-Rank to A-Rank. In the Dungeon Generation Room, when no one was there, suddenly an S-Rank door appeared.”
This happened a little more than 10 years ago. The 5 doorways that were in the Dungeon Generation Room suddenly increased to 6.
There were many theories being thrown around at the time about why that happened, but in the end, everyone came down to one conclusion.
[An Adventurer for the first time cleared the 50th Floor of the Base Dungeon]
They say that this is what triggered the new doorway to appear.
With the new doorway, the Adventurer’s Guild also created a new Rank.
They created the Class that even surpasses the A-Rank, the highest class - S-Rank.
As the pinnacle of Adventurers, currently, there are only 5 Adventurers who carry the S-Rank title.
Yuto: “In the past, there was a party of 10 A-Rank Adventurers who challenged a S-Rank Doorway, and none of them came back alive.”
Eliz: “An A-Rank party……..was wiped out?”
Yuto: “Yes, so that’s why they set the standards of S-Rank so high.”
Even the [Thousand Blades] Kratos, who is said to be the closest to S-Rank, is currently halted in his tracks at A-Rank.
It is that difficult to reach the title of S-Rank.
Regardless, after that one incident, the Guild called that major change an [Update].
Yuto: “Even before that, there have been phenomena that were similar to the major changes, but that was way before I was born.”
Dannan: “Ohhhhー, yeah, I heard of that story too. It goes back quite a long way, but now that you mention it, I remember it now too.”
From the last incident, the only commonality is a new door appearing.
But Yuto suspects that the additional section in the Status is also related to the major change.
Dannan: “I don’t know what God is thinking, but it’s always exciting to see something unknown and mysterious.”
Yuto: “Yes, most certainly.”
Yuto strongly agrees with Dannan’s words.
For all Adventurers, it’s the unknown that excites them the most.
Yuto: “So what do you want to do today? I thought we would try making it to the 20th Floor of the Base Dungeon but…….”
Yuto asks Eliz and Dannan for their input.
As long as Yuto has the Skill Board, Yuto himself does not need an assessment.
But Eliz and Dannan are different.
These two can only confirm their Status through the Guild’s assessment process.
Both had sparkles in their eyes as they spoke in unison.
Dannan: “I want to get assessed!” Eliz: “Yes!”
And with this, today’s schedule was determined.
It took a lot of time from getting in line to finally arriving at the [Room of Prayer].
The line was so long, it snaked its way out from the Temple all the way to the Temple Square.
Once they were in the [Room of Prayer], Yuto saw a familiar face.
Yuto: “Oh, it’s Miss Thames….”
She’s a [Beast Race] with long slender arms and legs that would catch your eye. It’s the [Lone Wolf] Thames.
She was intensely eyeing her Status paper and stood there, not looking up.
Her typical twitches and flowing movements of her ears and tail were dormant at the moment.
Yuto: (Was it not a good result…..?)
Yuto worriedly looks towards her.
Noticing his gaze, Thames raises her head and looks at Yuto.
Yuto: “GーGood morning, Miss Thames…”
Though he just greeted her, Yuto received a glowering glare from Thames.
Yuto couldn’t help but take a step back from the intensity in her eyes.
While Yuto was searching for his words, Thames stomped out the door and left the [Room of Prayer].
Eliz: “What was that?!”
Dannan: “She might have just been in a bad mood.”
Displeased with Thames’ attitude, Eliz puffed her cheeks out in anger.
Dannan just strained a slight smile as he watched Thames leave the room.
Dannan understood that something didn’t sit right with her and her Status assessment results.
But for Yuto, he couldn’t help but be worried more as he watched her leave.
Yuto: (Was she…..crying?)
While glowering at Yuto, Yuto, he thought he saw her eyes water slightly.
She has been striving to move up to C-Rank for quite a while now.
Not enrolling into any Party, she has been doing things Solo for quite some time.
Hence, that is why some call her the [Lone Wolf].
Yuto couldn’t imagine what she had to see on her Status assessment that would threaten to bring tears to her eyes.
Yuto: (I hope she’s okay…..)
Even though she suddenly challenged him to a duel, Yuto has also fought alongside her.
In the distant past, he was also in the same party as her, so Yuto could not help but be concerned for her.
Yuto: (I hope she’s not feeling too down on herself…..)
While thinking about her, Yuto and his group’s turn came around for the assessment.
