Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Chapter 50

Chapter 50.
Skill Appraisal! and....Magic?


Hope the skill description is understandable. If not, just fix my bad english.

Names again:

不快 = Unpleasant (Lol. Better one please) Disturb
幻痛 = Phantom Pain
濃影 = Dark Shadow
毒触 = Poison Touch

『Pain Alleviation:Pain is mitigated. When doing so, danger signal continues』

I appraised the remaining skills.
Although the result was approximately the same as I expected it, there were several new discoveries too.

First of all, the true colors of the "Visible Range Expansion" becomes clear.
This, in short, I can see infrared rays or ultraviolet rays?
But, I can't see such a thing at present.
Is it because it's still level 1?
Or, there are neither infrared rays nor ultraviolet rays in the dungeon.
Well, it's not something to be troubled even if I can't see it, so it's doesn't matter too much.

And, I understood something when I examined the resistance-type guys, but a rather terrible fact becomes clear.
Although most of the resistance were the same as the name, there's one guy that doesn't match with its name.

『Corrosion Attribute:The attribute controlling the decay of death』
(『腐蝕属性:死の崩壊を司る属性』TL note: not sure about this)

What's that scary thing.
I certainly thought that it was a resistance that I would be fine even if I eat rotten things, but it looks like it's a strange attribute.
This resistance rose when I ate the snail insect, so does that means that that guy has this attribute?
Uwa.
No wonder it doesn't has the taste of the world.
Un.
I will really make sure that eating the snail insect is the last resort.

And, the next one I'm interested in is "Detect".
"Detect", it's more efficient than I thought.
What's with that all perception-type skills?
No matter how I think, how can 100 skill points acquire such a high-performance skill?
I mean, can't I activate it individually?
It's impossible to do it.
I have already tried a lot of times, but it looks like I can only activate all of them.
The only thing I can change is the ON and OFF. There's no individual activation.
Although I wanted to activate the "Presence Perception" and "Danger Perception", because I have to activate all of them, I don't know which perception that grasp the information.
I mean, there's no way my small head can handle such a large quantity of information.
It won't end with just a headache.
Or rather, the level rose again even though I only tried it out a little.
Needless information increases even more making me to lose my reasoning.
It won't be useful unless I have a skill that can improve the result of my head.
Although it's too good because it's highly efficient, it's useless because it's highly efficient.
Cast pearls before swine. Cast "Detect" before spider.
Haa.



Well, the last one.
Depending on this appraisal result, my future might change greatly.
That is the appraisal of the three kinds of magic.
Up until now, I didn't know how to use it, so I had no choice but to leave it as it is.
The skill that should be useful if it's usable.
If I can use this, then it's okay for me to call myself a magician.
Yosh.
Appraisal-san, please!

『Heresy Magic:The magic that violates the soul directly. The magic that can be used differs depending on the level. LV1:Disturb LV2:Phantom Pain』
『Shadow Magic:A low rank Dark Magic that manipulates shadow. The magic that can be used differs depending on the level. LV1:Dark Shadow』
『Poison Magic:The magic that manipulates poison. The magic that can be used differs depending on the level. LV1:Poison Touch』

Oh?
Oun? ( おうん?)
Un.
Subtle.
No, although it's a large progress if it's compared with the time I don't know anything, still, I don't know how to use it.
The "Heresy Magic", in short, is it a mental attack-type magic?
The shadow and poison are the same as it is.
And, apparently, the spell that is usable at level 1 is there.
Although it's there, how do you use it?
Is it the same as "Appraisal", where I just need to pray silently?

Yosh.
Then, 「Disturb」!
...
...
...
Nothing happens.
No, it might only be a misfire because there's no target.
Let's try a different one.
 「Dark Shadow」!
...
...
...
Nothing happens.
 「Poison Touch」!
...
...
...
Nothing happens.
MP didn't decrease too.
Rather than misfire, it didn't even activate at all.
Seriously.
No, although I have a little expectations on it, it's no good after all.
No, wait?
If I examine magic with "Appraisal", I might get a hint.

『Magic:The thing that establish as a phenomenon after magical power is changed by the skill』
(『魔法:魔力をスキルで変化させ、現象として確立させたもの』TL note: this too)

Un, it's useless.
Aah, it looks like I still can't use magic.
Shit.
It looks like the day when I will call myself as Mahou Shoujo Magical Kumoko is still far.
Damn it.

  6. Although it is far from the literal meaning : for 不快, "disturb" might work ?
    Well, it is hard to know the actual effect just from the name alone, but I am guessing that it is supposed to cause a slight discomfort in the target.
    Or... it could cause the feeling of a slight depression ?

  10. Suggestion for the skills. Instead of "plus correction", just say that the skill increases whatever stat.
    Example:
    『Throw:Increases the power and accuracy for throwing something』

    ReplyDelete
  11. Detect sounds so OP..
    Wonder if Kumoko will name her skills ala magical girl now..
    Embrace my thread of love! ♡
    ☆*:.。.Shining Silk Cocoon!.。.:*☆

    Rather than a plus correction, wouldn't saying it simply an increase work?
    For example:
    Throw: Increase power and accuracy when throwing sth
    Accuracy: Increase hit rate

    1. As for Powerful it would be
      Increases Average Offensive Ability equivalent to the skill level.
      Maybe?

      Delete
    2. You're welcome.
      Umm, for Automatic HP Recovery, I think
      『Gradually recovers HP over time.』
      sounds better.

  12. Magic to give your enemies the creeps, "disturb" seems a little redundant when being cast by a giant spider. :P

    But the poison magic may be useful since it can nullify poison making meals a bit more bearable. Even more so if she can find a way to combine it with thread manipulation and have a poisonous attack web.

  13. I actually want her to eat more of the snails... XD

    Thanks so much for all your hard work, you are so awesome!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Poison synthesis is actually really good, being able to change her poison from a lethal one into a paralysing one or a hallucinogenic one is awesome. High Level applications might even give her aerosol poison... not to mention that she this way can poison the water supply, and potentially get an even stronger poison than what she has...

    Still waiting for her to get the ancient curse skill from being the last poisonous bug in a pile of poison bugs...

    1. I've read raw to latest chapter and I still don't know if those monsters need to drink any water.
      and there're some monsters that I can't even imagine how they will find water to drink.

  15. resistance were the same as the name, there's one guy that doesn't match with its name. Corrosion
    How is it not the same?
    『Poison Resistance:The defensive ability against the poison attribute increases』
    『Paralysis Resistance:The defensive ability against paralysis attribute increases』
    『Petrifaction Resistance:The defensive ability against petrifaction attribute increases』
    『Acid Resistance:The defensive ability against the acid attribute increases』
    『Corrosion Resistance:The defensive ability against corrosion attribute increases』
    『Fear Resistance:It becomes harder to sense fear」

    See only fear is different

  16. Feel like he should "buy" "mind filter" or something so detect is manageable
