Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? - Chapter 18
Here’s chapter 18
The next chapter should be up about 2-3 hours later.
I noticed something in this chapter.
Previously I used Skill Proficiency Level Up Bonus but it seems that I have misunderstood it as a skill like any of her skills. But after translating this chapter I noticed that it should have been Level Up Bonus Skill Proficiency because it should appear in the level up part every time even though this is the second time we see it.
That’s why I want to confirm this with raw readers. Does this part appear in each level up?
If you read the raw then please tell me in the comments without spoiling.
18 Complete recovery after staying at the inn is only in game
《Skill proficiency reached. Skill 『Acid Resistance LV2』 has became 『Acid Resistance LV3』》
A skill level went up.
With this, the next time I fight against the frog should be a little easier.
Actually, the possibility of the damage might have exceeded the maximum value if there I don’t have resistance against it.
It was dangerous.
My body is already worn-out.
2 spit attacks and an attack with its tongue. With that attacks only, I am on the verge of death.
Especially, the tongue attack was dangerous.
My body dented after receiving the direct hit and a few of my legs broke by the shock.
I didn’t lowered my guard.
I expected that the winning rate to be low if I fight head-on without using spiderwebs against other monsters.
Still, somewhere in my heart, thought that “I can somehow manage it”.
Honestly, it’s unexpectedly tedious.
Anyway, I don’t think I can move properly with this injury.
For now, I should make a simple home here and devote myself to heal the injury.
I leave the dead frog there and started to spread my threads.
An intense pain assaulted my body whenever I move.
《Skill proficiency reached. Acquired skill 『Pain Resistance LV1』》
Is it a new skill?
Un, somehow I can feel the pain is relieving.
Still, it’s very painful.
However, this skill seems to quite useful.
I am grateful that the skill level will rise naturally if I continue to survive after this.
Finally, the simple home is completed.
With this, I can finally rest.
If a monster attacks me now, I would definitely die.
For the time being, let’s eat the prey that I had a hard time killing it.
My first ended up with a narrow victory.
The battle with my brother?
Such a thing can’t even be called as a battle.
Not counted. ( ノーカンノーカン )
I realized it once again after experiencing my first battle.
I am WEAK! ( TL note: lol, she uses 私Ｙｏｅｅｅｅ！)
I think that the whole Small Lesser Taratect species including me are weak.
Well, at any rate, it’s a deteriorating species.
The offensive power is poor and the defensive power is fragile.
Though only the speed was able to reached a certain level but it can’t avoid the barrage of spit attacks from the frog.
My basic ability value is even inferior to a lower level frog.
The reason I was able to defeat a monster without having a hard time was because of the spiderweb made by my threads.
This is the outcome if I fight head-on.
I understand well that how I relied on my home.
At any rate, this has become clear to me.
It’s impossible for me to initiate a battle from the front.
If I were to fight head-on, it can be said that everything is decided by how I were to restrain my opponent with threads.
Alternatively, there’s a measure where I can bite my opponent with my poison fangs but with this poor status, I would be killed before I can bite.
I can confuse my opponent with my speed and strike when there’s a opportunity or I can set up a trap like this time and restrain it with my threads.
This seems to be my basic strategy.
Or I can set up a trap in advance and lead it there.
When thinking so, my compatibility with the frog might be bad.
It’s a type where it keeps on sniping from long distance one-sidedly.
Because it won’t move so much, it won’t jump into the trap.
It’s a pain that I don’t have any long-distance attack.
Though I can shoot threads but the range is short and above all, my opponent might be cautious to my threads.
I want to keep this method as long as possible.
I need to think about the countermeasures for the long-distance attacks as soon as possible.
A lot of problems.
I now know my weakness, or rather I’m full of weakness.
However, I can’t give in just because of this.
I only need to build a new home if I only need to live on.
(ただ生きるだけなら新しいマイホーム作ればそれで事足りる。TL: not sure about this)
But then, it’s no good.
Since I decided to live my life proudly, I cannot cling to escaping here.
But just let me rest for now.
This injury, I wonder how long does it need to reach complete recovery?
Or rather, can it even be cured?
Ah, I am envious of the character in game that can fully recover after sleeping overnight.
Anyway, let’s sleep.
Today was a tiring day.
I need to sleep in order to recover.
Thus, good night.
Ah, I slept well.
Rather than sleeping, it feels like I fainted.
Ugu, there’s still pain in my body.
Well, it’s impossible to recover from such injury in one night.
Adadada! ( あだだだだ！)
When I tried to stretch my body, an intense pain ran through my bent legs.
Kuu, especially my 2 right middle legs were the most painful.
Won’t it get torn off if I’m careless?
I became uneasy wondering whether this injury will recover or not.
There’s a vibration from the thread, uwa, a monster got caught by the web of my simple home.
Usually I would wake up as soon as there’s a vibration from my threads but it looks like I slept soundly till I didn’t notice it.
It’s all because of the damage on my body was too huge.
『Elro Basilisk LV4』
It’s the petrifaction lizard.
Another troublesome guy got caught again.
What should I do?
Because this guy has the devil’s eye of petrifaction, it can attack if our eyes met.
In addition to this injury, isn’t it bad if I receive a petrifaction attack?
But letting go of the monster is just…
Kyoro. ( キョロ )
Ah, our eyes met.
Nge! ( んげ！)
My leg is starting to petrify!
When it comes to this, it can’t be helped already.
The petrifaction speed is considerably slow due to my “Petrifaction Resistance”.
But it’s bad to be unable to use my unbroken foreleg.
If things don’t go well, it might be difficult to move.
Please die while my leg is still functioning!
Kuta. ( クタ )
Wondering whether my prayer reached or not, the basilisk died before my leg fully turns into stone.
Umumu, though I can still walk but this is hard.
《Experience points has reached a certain degree。Individual, Small Lesser Taratect LV5 has became LV6》
《Every basic ability rose》
《Level Up Bonus Skill Proficiency acquired》
《Skill proficiency reached. Skill 『Poison Fang LV4』 has became 『Poison Fang LV5』》
《Skill proficiency reached. Skill 『Petrifaction Resistance LV1』 has became 『Petrifaction Resistance LV2』》
《Skill point gained》
I am happy that 2 skills leveled up.
But there’s something much better than it!
I can remove my skin from my body.
It’s shedding of skin.
One of the benefits of level up, complete recovery by shedding skin!
I was worried whether my dented body can be cured or not but it looks like it’s fully recovered now.
Iyahha! ( イヤッハー！)
Thank you, Basilisk!
Though I didn’t recover completely after sleeping overnight, I recovered completely by leveling up.
