Itai no wa Iya nanode Bōgyo-Ryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu - Chapter 361
Defense Specialization and ‘Rapid Fire’ 3 .
After defeating the rose, Maple and Sally walked behind the other two in order to see them fight, just as had been promised .
That being said, this just involved seeing very weak-looking tree monsters being one-shotted by Willbert, and exploding .
“It doesn’t even feel like a fight . I thought Yui and Mai were the only ones who could give off that vibe…”
“He really is one-shotting all of them! I’ve never seen him miss…”
“He moves much faster than you, Maple . And bows have a lot of skills that require high DEX, so there is no way that he put everything into STR . ”
As for what they could observe now, that they couldn’t when they watched from far away, was that it looked like Lily hadn’t activated any skills yet . So aside from the face that Willbert was shooting the monsters down without using any skills, they did not gain any more information .
“Hmm . Maybe it’s a passive skill then…”
Lily had told them that her maid outfit was very rare . That being said, they didn’t know if she was telling the truth . But there was clearly a reason that she had this equipment instead of more traditional armor and a spear .
“Well, let’s hope there’s a stronger monster, like that rose we just fought . ”
The tree monsters were treated like the common enemies they were . They needed someone who could put up an actual fight .
As Lily twirled her mop around playfully, and Willbert killed the monsters expertly, they came out into another clearing .
“Will . What was here again?”
“The mushroom . It’s a little dangerous . ”
“Then I guess I could help you a little . I did make a promise, after all . And I’m starting to get a little bored . ”
“Yes, that would help . ”
As the two talked like this, spores started to spray out of the ground, and a giant mushroom grew from the center . After a short delay, several smaller mushrooms sprouted around it . And they charged at the pair with a will of their own .
“Talent to Serve the King,’ ‘Strategy Instruction,’ ‘Suprarational Power . ’ Hmm… Ah, ‘Sage’s Command’! Alright, I think that should do it . ”
“‘Tight Pull,’ ‘Strongest Shot . ’”
As Willbert’s bow was enveloped in a red light, the bow was pulled to its absolute limit before being unleashed . The arrow flew at a speed that the eye could not follow and pierced every one of the mushrooms that were moving in a straight row, before hitting the center of the big mushroom, and carving out a huge hole in it .
However, this was not enough to kill it . And while numerous damage effects exploded everywhere, it still had a little HP remaining . Immediately after, it recovered about thirty percent of its HP, and then filled the surrounding air with even more spores . There were more than a few dozen mushrooms now .
“Huh? I thought we killed it in one hit last time . ”
“I can handle it if it only has thirty percent of its health left . ”
“Well, I’ll still help you a little . ‘This Body into Food,’ ‘Advice . ’”
The mushrooms unleashed more of their venomous-looking spores into the air as they approached . And while Lily activated her skills, there was no visible effect .
“Alright, here goes . ‘Area Expand,’ ‘Rain of Arrows . ’”
Next, Willbert unleashed his arrow at the sky . And just like the name suggested, a rain of arrows descended in a specific area . ‘Area Expand’ insured that there was no space between the rain of arrows, and so the mushrooms were pierced one after another . It was the same with the large mushroom as well . And it was destroyed before it really had a chance to do anything .
“Nice . It’s a great way to take it down . ”
“In that case, you should have done more for the first shot…”
“Ahaha…don’t be like that . ”
Lily laughed it off and then turned to Maple and Sally in order to hear their opinion .
“It was amazing! I didn’t know that bows were so strong…”
“Will is special . ”
“…The first shot . My guess would be that it’s a passive skill that does more damage the first time that you hit a target . ”
This was the first time they had seen Willbert shoot a target more than once . While Sally didn’t know about all the buffs, she did know about ‘Rain of Arrows . ’ It was a basic bow skill and since it was a wide-area attack, it did not do that much damage .
However, she was able to observe that compared to his first shot, his second one did considerably less damage . And when considering Lily’s buffs and the original power of ‘Rain of Arrows,’ it seemed that some really big buff was now missing .
“That’s practically correct! Impressive . ”
“You’re kidding… Oh, you’re not . ”
“It’s just as I said . And I don’t care if you know . ”
“Yeah . Alright, as a reward for guessing correctly, we’ll also do the boss fight . ”
“Uh, are you sure?”
If they got to watch them take on a boss, they might learn about even more skills . They had no reason to refuse .
