The Reason to Hide it

rawr: https://ncode.syosetu.com/n9517fc/27/ 

=================================== 

In WLO, SP is an important factor. 

And you can also say it can also become the greatest weakness vanguard jobs have. 

Regarding walking, it doesn’t really use up SP but,  in battle, attacking, evading, using arts and etc, a lot of times, SP is being used up.

 

If one were to say the difference from MP then, its recovery doesn’t need that much time.  

Though you would need to stop for a certain degree but, if you have gotten better at fighting then most of the time you won’t run out of SP, if you are in a party then you can appoint roles and recover too. 

 

However, it becomes another matter when you’re fighting a boss  battle that you need to use up your arts continuously. 

The bigger the area of attack the bigger it takes up your SP to avoid it, and there are also scenes where you can’t use your arts. 

Especially since the use of arts have a big consumption, if you think about trying to use a high powered certain kill technique, then you would probably have to rush in a reckless risky situation.

 

When Sukuna was fighting against the red wolf, what made her suffer was not his speed but the continuous attacks that it could make out of its seemingly endless stamina. 

That’s right, the reason why the Red wolf that was a pure physical type was so powerful was that you would run out of SP and you would barely even have the time to rest.

 

A counter matching with his attacks, with an exception of some players, you normally evade the attack, and you use that opening to close up the distance and attack, that was the basic strategy against Aria the red wolf. 

However if you use that strategy, the red wolf who keeps running around, dealing with that uses up SP, and preparing for an attack uses up SP, and the attack itself uses up SP, your SP would be taken up in 3 levels. 

And the result was that your SP wouldn’t be enough, and then you will gradually lose. That was the fate of most of the players who fought against the red wolf. 

And even if a magician player fights it then, they wouldn’t be able to handle that physical and die.

 ]

With that reason, The counter strategy that Sukuna used in the red wolf battle, is the best choice but that is 「If you can do it」. 

On this opportunity, explaining it like this, even the Red wolf who you think is invincible, has the fatal weakness where it’s 「HP is Low」. 

Raising your level, increasing your stats, preparing your equipment and studying its attack pattern, and you can someday defeat it, is what they theorized. 

 

 

「T-this is…..」

 

Being lost for words and Touka-chan tilting her head looking confused and Konekomaru-san smiling who had guessed it was coming.

 

「Just what kind of skill is it?」

 

「L-look」

 

She was most likely curious about my reaction, I made the menu visible and showed it to Touka-chan who asked. 

Taking a peek at it and slowly reading through, and after that she too had hardened up.

 

「hahahaha, you two sure have great reactions. Be relieved it’s not a dream」

 

「no no no (iya iya iya)」 

 

「But you understand right? This is not something you can show during a stream. All of the 3 named weapons that have been made up this point, something different from their destructive power, this power that can impartially give this effect to any player」 

 

From the serious words of Konekomaru-san, we can’t help but agree. 

Reducing every consumption of SP by half. This just simply gives the player who equips this, they can use their arts two times as much they usually do. 

Though to be precise you can’t do this since skills have stuns you for a little bit after use but, if you were to be frank, you would say it like this.

 

「…..If I haven’t made this armor, it might have only stopped at the degree of 《Reduce Arts SP consumption by half》. However, since the deed is done, this equipment is completed. Fortunately, others can’t see a player SP or the details of an equipment so, I want you to keep that skill a secret for now. At least up until to the point that an equipment with the same effects appear in this game」

 

From his words,  both me and Touka-chan nodded. 

Someday, a player would appear and defeat Aria and get the rare drop 《Soul》. 

Or maybe from the result of defeating other Named bosses, effects on the same level―― for example MP usage halved――or someone who could make an equipment with the same effect. 

Since 4 types of named boss monsters have been defeated within 2 weeks. And according to Rin-chan, soon enough another new one would be subjugated too, it’s not like it’s impossible.

 

「Of course, I won’t say don’t use it. Just that, you just need to make it vague. Vague like its an equipment that decreases SP consumption or something, the surroundings should be convinced」

 

「You’ve got a point….Since I don’t want to be called a cheater so, I will do it like that」

 

I gratefully took Konekomaru-san’s suggestion.

 

Based on the assumption earlier, there is a chance that other players will be able to get the same thing but, right now is still in the time of 「someday」. 

In this game that just started, it’s certainly a big reward for the player who did the first subjugation, so, in an online game it’s easy to be tied to jealousy or envy. 

I want to avoid adding fuel to the fire.

 

「Thank you. As an apology or something, I was told by my wife to pass over this accessory」

 

「Accessory?」

 

Konekomaru-san replied to my words with a smile and opened up his menu and tampered with it, and one item was transferred to me. 

Press the yes in the notice whether I should receive it or not, I opened up the screen for the details of the item.

 

――

 

Black Wolf’s Choker 

Rarity: High Common ・ PM 

Dexterity: +5 

A jet black choker made from the materials of a black wolf. 

It has the effect of sharpening the senses of the wearer.

 

――

 

「My wife wants to give this to you as a present, it’s made from the remaining black wolf materials. It doesn’t have that much effect but, since she went for the trouble to make it, I would be happy if you would accept it」

 

「Since it was made so, I’ll gladly take it」

 

「Wow, its a choker…..there is a symbol of a wolf stitched in it 」

 

Wearing the accessory that was given to me right away, Touka-chan checked the design seriously. 

Tracing through it with my hand, certainly there was a pattern of a wolf stitched on it. 

From the point that it was designed precisely, you could feel the player’s influence.

 

「Now then, That ends my side of business」

 

「And so, what materials would you like to have」

 

「What I want is-….」

 

Without any real meaning, the 2 of us had evil smiles, a dark conversation-…which is nothing like that, we reopened our interrupted negotiations.

 

And then after roughly 5 minutes. 

Nothing really to disagree about, most of the materials were passed over Konekomaru-san, and we parted from Konekomaru-san.

Ogre chapter 27 end

9: The act of hiding true power or all their power of the MC because they don’t want to stand out is something I don’t really  like happening in novels but in this case they are still using the skills just making it vague, so I’ll forgive it for now.

  1. Nah, she is already stand out very much so da reason is obviously different.

    Its no good to show all info about u or your build in dis vrmmo novels cuz “when people know a lot about your skills dan dey have more ways to think of how to win vs u in pvp”.

    And also dere always will be some noobs who could just complain “uuu no real skill just op stats” and stuff.

    1. 9: i know what they are going with but, after reading and dropping wn with MC’s having to hide stuff because of some shitty reasons, it gets stressing, like scenes where you would go with “if they had just used that skill, then it would have been faster” , since most of these MC’s are OP, they could just easily shut them up.

      Though in Sukuna’s case, its an exception to that to me, since she is still gonna use it, its a passive skill after all

      1. You also have to remember that death penalty is doubled and she still wants to play. If it got out what she had people would hunt her for the equipment and she’d have to spend half a day in DP.

      2. Well, hiding stuff is annoying indeed. But da main point is dat here nobody is hiding anything. She sure gonna use all her skills and might in front of whoever will appear, she just wont tell what exactly she used and how exactly it works. Dats da point so no hiding.

        But yeah, i understand ur consern very much.

  2. I mean add in that she is a streamer. You don’t want to incite a mass influx of trolls to spam your chat. Also you want to be able to group and socialize with others. There is a pretty big chance of getting ostracized if you flaunt something as powerful and unique as that.

  4. I get what you say
    Most of MC i read always doing stuff like “This power is dangerous, I need to seal it” or “I don’t want to stand out, so I will low profile from now” who always ended up fail miserably.
    In case of Sukuna-chan, I think is okay because she already stand out in another way and the power she have not that OP because it depend on her own skill and also have a demerit.

  5. Thanks

    I somewhat get people who don’t want to stand out, since that’d be me in the situation, but I hate it when they take it to extreme levels or they’re just plain dumb.

  6. My biggest problem with Nana is the mentality that her using her natural physical abilities (or additionally in this case, a crafted skill she EARNED in the game from a monster she was able to kill) is somehow cheating. I’m clearly aware of how she went through stupid stuff when she was younger, but like… she was born this way, there’s nothing she can do about it. It’s not cheating to use your natural abilities to do things. I just don’t understand that part of her reasoning.

  8. It’s weird she doesn’t want to stand out for fear if being called a cheater, it was the same with her physical skills, it’s all just luck you can’t go up to a beautiful busty girl and tell her she’s cheating at life for being a model.

    I do take quite an issue with that weird logic of bit wanting to stand out.

  9. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog readers have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?|

  10. This whole “I don’t want to show the equipment because it’s too OP” trope is just plain stupid. Specially so here, because MC is a streamer and not just an anonymous rando.

    When you kill a boss of that level, and even more, stream it, then everyone is going to be curious about its drops. It’s not a thing you can just brush off and pretend it doesn’t exist. Now, if you make equipment or weapons out of them and wear them, even more eyes will be drawn towards you.

    You can argue that it’s so people don’t steal it from her, but the equipment literally says “cannot be lost”, which is practically the same as being player-bound.

    Or maybe you’d argue that it’s to not look like a jerk by wearing OP stuff, but she’d look even more like a jerk if she intentionally restrain information from everyone once the cat’s out of the bag. If being accused of being a jerk for fairly getting OP armor early on bothers her (which, really, shouldn’t bother anyone since it’s not a competitive game), she’d be better off just not wearing it until it’s no longer an advantage.

    Now, reasons to conceal the info aside, even when you conceal the info, people WILL eventually realize something’s not right, because even small stat advantages make themselves evident in top level play. Halved stamina even more.

    The only times anyone may want to restrict info like that is when that info is the byproduct of a gamebreaking exploit and they have informed the devs, but since MC beat the fight fairly (and even streamed it), then there’s absolutely no reason to.

    Maybe I’m too salty, but it’s just that I hate this particular trope. I come from playing Destiny and Monster Hunter myself, so it just doesn’t sit well with me. The rest of this WN is fine and I’m really enjoying it so far.
