Chapter 65: The Physical Body Changes due to Occupation
In the end, Yuto could not complete 7,000 swings in one day.
That was to be expected.
The Updated Quest is labeled as a Weekly type Quest.
The difficulty of the Quest was not designed to be completed in a single day.
Even so, Yuto could almost clear the Quest in one day.
But trying to do so will mean that Yuto will only be doing that task for the whole day.
He would not be able to fit any other activities that day.
Doing so would also make the “Weekly” aspect meaningless.
Training is most effective when you perform it continuously a little at a time each day.
Regardless, it is the next day.
After a good night’s sleep, Yuto woke up with minimal fatigue and went on his morning job.
He realized something after yesterday’s sword swinging session.
If he purely depends on Levels and Skills, then eventually, he will hit a wall.
In order to raise the fundamental physical strengths and abilities, Yuto decided to continue his fundamental strength training.
If he was to walk 500 meters (a little more than a quarter of a mile) each day, he could circle around the giant Kronos Labyrinth City with that distance.
In that year, between someone who walks and someone who doesn’t will have that much of a difference open up.
In all things, it’s the small efforts and habits that will ultimately make a difference.
After he was done jogging, he met with Eliz and Dannan, and they descended to the 16th Floor of the Base Dungeon.
Yuto: “Okay, let’s just go down a little at a time.”
Dannan: “Roger that.”
Eliz: “I understand, yes.”
The 15th Floor is still in the D-Rank realm of difficulty.
They don’t have to be so nervous, but they shouldn’t let their guard down.
Yuto gazes at Dannan who is leading the group, and takes out the Skill Board.
Yuto: (And that should do it.)
On the Party Formation Screen, Dannan is now added as a Party Member.
So now, even if Dannan does not attack, experience points will now go to Dannan automatically.
Eliz: “Ummm….Mr. Yuto?”
Yuto: “Hm? What’s wrong?” Ellz: “.......why am I with Pino?”
Eliz seems a little displeased as she looks up with her eyes.
On top of her head, Yuto’s tamed Monster Pino is sitting there proudly.
Pino’s thoughts are pouring into Yuto’s brain through the Tame Skill.
It looks like Pino really loves being on Eliz’ head right now.
Yuto: “He says he’ll protect you.”
Eliz sticks out her bottom lips to pout.
Previously, Pino protected her from the Chaos Slime’s attacks.
Because of that experience, she’s not able to argue with Yuto.
Eliz: “CーCould he at least fit inside my bag, yes?”
Yuto: “He likes to sit on top of your head better.”
Although Eliz is upset, Yuto can’t help but smile.
Pino is currently positioned to be able to see in all directions and can respond to any sneak attacks accordingly.
Pino is doing what he can to protect Eliz to the best of his abilities.
From the week of Monster slaying, his Level has exponentially grown.
If it’s against a D-Rank Monster, Pino will be able to deflect almost all attacks.
Pino has transformed from a regular Slime to an adept specialized Shield Creature for protecting Eliz.
Dannan: “Yuto, Eliz, incoming.”
With Dannan’s warning, a Monster appears ahead of our group.
The Monster that appeared was a Spider that were about 1 meter large - the [Evil Spider].
Behind Yuto, Eliz jumps up in surprise.
Without noticing the change in Eliz, Yuto slides his right foot forward.
The next moment, he jumps with his full strength.
He draws his sword out in mid-air.
And slices with one swing as he passes by them.
As he lands on the ground past the Spider, the Spider’s body splits in two.
With the sword still in front of him, Yuto takes a moment to breathe.
Yuto: (........amazing. Even though my Level and Skill haven’t changed much, my movements are at least one rank higher than before.)
The change in Status due to receiving his Occupation went well beyond Yuto’s highest expectations.
From what Yuto can tell, the Skills with the plus sign advantages increase the Skill about 1 Level higher.
Yuto: (This……..is going to be a crucial aspect to all Adventurers going forward.)
The Occupation that affects your Status was something that most definitely could raise an Adventurer’s base strength.
As he was thinking about these things….
Dannan: “Yuto, watch out!”
Yuto: “ーーoh, that was close.”
With Dannan’s warning, Yuto jumped to the side.
Right afterwards, a small white line crossed where Yuto was standing moments before.
ーーthe Spider’s web.
The Spider Yuto split in half was actually still alive.
But it looks like that was it. After that last attack, the Spider was slowly sucked down into the Dungeon floor.
Yuto relaxes his stance and puts away his sword.
Dannan: “That was close, Yuto.”
Yuto: “Yes, Mr. Dannan. Thank you for the warning.”
Among the Monsters, there are those who will squeeze out their last bit of strength right before they die to attack one last time.
Even if you slice a Monster into several pieces, until you confirm that it has died, you should never let your guard down.
Yuto: (........yeah, I need to be more careful.)
Yuto scolds himself for making such a beginner’s mistake.
After they collected the Drops and Monster Stones, Eliz showed up.
She was crouched low at the edge of a hallway.
She held Pino and was shaking visibly.
She must have been holding Pino tightly because Pino was bent out of shape.
Pino sensed Yuto’s approach and turned towards Yuto.
As if to sigh deeply, Pino sent another message to Yuto.
It was his plea for help. Receiving such a message that was so human being-like, Yuto smiled slightly.
Yuto: “Eliz, the battle is over.”
