Chapter 74 .
First battle in the middle layer .
74 Middle layer capture starts
Well, let’s confirm the current state for the time being .
Now, I’m right in the center of the boiling magma .
The ratio of the land and the magma is roughly the same .
Although I came here naturally, is this the right path?
Well, I don’t know whether it’s right or not, so I have no choice but to just advance .
The results of the aftermath of the Earth Dragon’s attack and running even after exceeding my limits, my HP decreases a little .
As the decrease is not a big deal, but in this scorching area where I will keep on receiving damage, I can’t expect from the recovery because the automatic recovery offsets with damage .
In order to recover, I can either recover by level up or raise the skill level of “Automatic HP Recovery” or “Fire Resistance” to break the balance of the recovery and damage .
However, in the worst case, the damage might become bigger because the magma is just nearby .
I would like to avoid hotter places as much as possible, but what will it becomes .
Judging from the upper layer and the lower layer so far, it’s better to think that this middle layer is considerably wide .
After all, it’s the world’s largest labyrinth .
It’s to the extent that it connects two continent, so I should be resolute that it might take many days to escape from the middle layer .
Even though it’s still long ahead, I’m already depressed at the start .
A bad omen .
Yosh, then, let’s go .
However, it’s hot .
Because I lived in a comfortable temperature since I was reborn into a spider .
When the environment changes suddenly, I’m becoming heavy .
Because I have came here occasionally to raise the skill level of “Fire Resistance”, it’s not that I can’t endure the heat .
But still, when thinking that this state continues until I escape from the middle layer, as expected, I will be tired .
Especially, my legs .
This is a place where magma flows in the vicinity, you know?
It’s obvious that the ground is hot .
This is already not like being affected by the summer’s heat .
If an egg is cracked here, it will get burned rather than becoming a fried egg .
And, I need to move in this area bare footed .
Hot or perhaps I should say it already go beyond pain .
I can’t continue if I don’t have “Pain Alleviation” and “Automatic HP Recovery” .
Oh, found a monster .
『Elro Generush LV5
Failed to appraise its status』
That’s the first monster I saw after arriving at the middle layer .
It’s the guy that looks like a seahorse .
It’s swimming in the magma calmly just like the first day .
Nai wa .
It doesn’t seems that I’m noticed, so I want to pass through it like this, but that guy is there in the traveling direction .
What should I do?
Here, let’s battle once .
I want to experiment to what degree my threads can be used in the middle layer, and if it’s the status of the previously seen monster, I think I can win even if I fight it directly .
It’s convenient as the opponent, and at present, there are no monsters around here .
Let’s go .
It seems that the other side haven’t notice me yet, so let’s get a preemptive attack without reservation .
Thus, come on, “Severing Thread”!
The thread is extended and I swing it sideways .
I swing the thread aiming at the seahorse’s neck, but the thread burnt out as it is on top of the magma .
Because it will be troublesome if I catch a fire here, I detach the remaining thread from my body .
Ah, uu .
It’s no good .
It burnt even though it didn’t touch the magma directly .
This, does this means that my thread is useless in the middle layer?
My strongest weapon is sealed .
It was a shock even though I expected it .
And, something is flying towards here .
It’s a fireball .
It’s painful if it hits, I mean, with that size, won’t I be burnt?
Sooi! ( そおい！)
I avoid it .
Of course I will avoid it .
Ah, a second one is coming .
The seahorse is spitting out fireballs from within the magma .
At that level of speed, it won’t hit me .
Although I can’t avoid the frog’s saliva attack long ago, now, I’m much more stronger than that time because my speed has increased and I have the “Evasion” skill .
Now, I have the godly evasion ability that can’t be outdone by my game character!
Even if I’m paper armored, it’s not a big deal if it doesn’t hit .
However, this is bad .
Both of us don’t have the winning move .
The other side’s fireball can’t hit me .
But, since I can’t use my threads, I have no way to attack it .
Both are deadlock .
Ah, no, that guy’s MP is going to be exhausted .
That fireball seems to consume MP .
That means, fireballs won’t fly here anymore once its MP is exhausted .
Appraisal-sama is really a cheat .
The opponent’s information can be known while fighting .
Yosh, I avoid the last fireball .
With this, that guy no longer has MP .
The next move that guy makes will change the outcome of this battle, but what will it do?
Ah, it crept out from the magma .
It rushes as it is .
If it’s me, I will do a strategic withdrawal when my MP is exhausted .
I avoided the rush with composure as it looks slow for me .
I cling on the seahorse’s back, and stab my claw using “Poison Attack” .
I mean, this guy’s body is hot!
My HP has decreased!
My valuable HP!
For the time being, the seahorse that got affected by the Deadly Poison died easily .
I manage to win my first match .
However, that .
The greatest enemy in this middle layer might be the terrain .
