Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Chapter 90

Chapter 90.
Kumoko is getting OP.


90 Patience

I'm exploring aimlessly in the middle layer.
My stomach became full after eating the eel, so it doesn't seems that I need to worry about collapsing because of hunger.
It doesn't seems that I need to hunt assertively at this rate, so I will advance at leisure.
My mood is also good, so I can forgive the heat of the middle layer now.
Ah, as expected, this heat is too much.

There are no monsters in the surroundings, so let's confirm my skill points.
My skill points increased to 500 points in this evolution, so I might find a good skill.
All of the skills except "Detection" are big hits, so it would be good to acquire a good skill in this flow.

"Pride" is somewhat vague and the only disadvantage is that the level of "Taboo" rose at present.
It doesn't seems that I can do something about "Taboo" immediately, and when thinking so, is it a substantial disadvantage?
When thinking about the absurdly high effect, the advantage exceeds the disadvantage as revenue and expenditure.
It's a mystery that this skill can be acquired with just 100 skill points.
Just by seeing its effect, I can understand even if it needs 1000 points.

Although finding non-standard skills like "Pride" might be aiming too high, let's acquire skills that seem to be good.
It's no use to collect too many points.
Such thing have value when it's used.
Saving up from here even more to acquire the higher skills seems to be bad in efficiency.

Thus, Appraisal-sama, please do it!
Double appraise the skill point.
I looked at the list that appeared.

Un.
When seeing like this, there are still a lot of skills that can be acquired with 100 points.
Although most of them are useless, let's raise the skill proficiency thoroughly if I'm free next time.
But, it's better to raise skill proficiency of the more useful skill if I have such time.
Ah, but, there might be a skill that becomes useful after it evolves like "Prediction".
Un.
I'm hesitating.
Now's not the time for that. I need to see the skills that can be acquired with more than 200 points.

Un.
As expected, there's no skill of the "Pride" class.
I did somewhat expect a little for it.
Well, of course I will.

I thought I was going to said that.

It's there.
Broken skill.

Patience(500):n% power capable of reaching the Gods. Own divinity area is expanded.
As long as you have MP, no matter what kind of damage is received, you will survive with HP 1. In addition, the W system is surpassed and the the right to interfere with the MA area is obtained』

There's a mysterious skill fully loaded of mysterious language again....
And, there's a ability like a joke.
This activates when I receive damage by consuming MP?
I don't know how's the MP consumption, but does it means that I can do a zombie attack as long as I still have MP?
I don't understand.
What's with that nasty ability.

This time, I don't hesitate.
With a click.

《Currently you have 500 skill points.
The skill 『Patience』 can be acquired by spending 500 skill points.
Do you want to acquire it?》

Yes.

《『Patience』 was acquired. Remaining skill point 0》

I, who have acquired "Pride" don't have the word "retreat" in me any longer!
I will acquire all of these skills!
Be it "Taboo" or whatever it is, come at me!

《Skill proficiency reached. Skill 『Taboo LV5』 has become 『Taboo LV7』》

I'm sorry.
After all, it's better if you don't come.

《Conditions met. Title 『Ruler of Patience』 was acquired》
《By the effects of the title 『Ruler of Patience』, skill 『Heresy Nullity』『Conviction』 was acquired》
《『Heresy Resistance LV4』 has unified with 『Heresy Nullity』》

Ah, as expected, "Taboo" rose.
This time is also 2.
Well, it can't be helped.
Apart from that, the important one is the title.

I can't stay like this!
Let's confirm the title immediately!

Ruler of PatienceAcquisition skill 「Heresy Nullity」「Conviction」:Acquisition condition:Acquisition of 「Patience」:Effect:Every ability of defense and resistance rise. Opening of evil eye-type skill. A+correction whenever resistance-type skill proficiency gained. The Ruler class privilege is acquired:Explanation:The title presented to those who rule patience』

Ah.
It's just as expected.
As expected, it's a cheat class title.
My defense and resistance increased!
Both increased by 100, my defense rose to 351 and my resistance rose to 380.
Really, what's this?
Isn't it a little too cheat?
It's also great that the skill proficiency of the resistance-type skills becomes easier to raise.
Because I'm specialized in "Evasion", I don't receive attacks easily, so my resistance-type skill don't rise much.
It compensates my weak place, so it's considerably good.

And, I'm bothered by the opening of the evil eye-type skill.
I want this.
If I acquire something of the evil eye, I can say something like 「Ku, my right eye throbs!」 or 「This is what it means to kill something」. (TL note: The second one is Tohno Shiki's quote)
It's really the word that titillates the chuunibyou.
I want to acquire it, but I don't have skill points anymore!
Ah, I must quickly level up and save up my skill points.

There are also the newly added skills, "Heresy Nullity" and "Conviction".
"Heresy Nullity" seems to be the highest rank of "Heresy Resistance".l
"Heresy Resistance" has the effect that increases defensive ability against attack that violates the soul directly, while "Heresy Nullity" completely nullifies that.
With this, even if an enemy who uses "Heresy Magic" attacks me, I don't have to worry.

Conviction:Deal damage that can't be resisted proportional to the cumulative total value of crimes against those who accumulate crimes within the system in the soul』

Wow.
In other words, it's an attack that the damage becomes higher if the opponent commit more crimes.
It's scary that it says can't be resisted.
But, this has the same sense as "Hell".
It doesn't seems that I can use it.

Although I tried it, just as I thought, it can't be used.
Although it might be a misfire because there's no target, there's a conviction that it can't be used.

Well, even if "Conviction" can't be used, it's still an outrageous advantage.
Although "Taboo" rose, I have no choice but to let nature take its course.
As long as I won't die suddenly when "Taboo" reaches level 10, I will accept that disadvantage.

Nevertheless, my status increase a lot and my skills improved.
Aren't I the strongest?

  1. She should try detect again... it was doing heresy / soul damage to her, shes got heresy Nullity now.... so she just might be able to use it.

    1. But heresy resist didn't grow when detect was used. Only those parellel and accelerated thought did. That means Heresy resist isn't related to it right?

      Delete
    2. Heresy resist did increased when she used Detection. It increased at last part of chapter 89!

  2. I'm curios what taboo would evolve into. Maybe it will make every other living thing hate her and set the part of forever loner kumoko.

    1. i would like to know what taboo itself does xD A skill described as " Should not be leveled" is quite interesting :3
      Maybe Taboo lvl10-> Demon Lord´s Amibition xD

      Delete
    2. Not sure what it's main effect will be but it will definitely effect her evolution choices.I think it will allow her to evolve into a spider with the upper body of a woman or a spider that can transform into a woman (Jorōgumo). This would allow her to leave the cave and interact with humans.

      Also maybe the main effect will make it impossible for her to stay in the cave (such as making monsters attack her). That way she's forced to leave and the plot can progress. So far she seems very cautious. It seems like she wouldn't go to an unknown area willingly.

  3. I think it should be 'Sloth' rather than 'Patience' - Considering the 7 Deadly Sins.

    1. It's not a sin. The kanji is 忍耐. Probably a virtue.

      Delete
    2. Patience is correct. It's not a sin but a virtue skill.

      Delete
    3. so would it correlate with temperance for Restrain->Patience and Justice -> Conviction?

      Delete
    4. The 7 Heavenly Virtues are typically:
      Chastity, Temperance, Charity, Diligence, Patience, Kindness, and Humility, with each one being the opposite of one of the 7 deadly sins.

      Delete
    5. well about 7 virtues and sins it's still just a guess, it's not confirmed.

      some clues
      - non-classmate person has a sin skill so it's not only for classmates.
      - another "broken" skill was created, not included into sins/virtues system.

      Delete
    6. Patience can also be called forgiveness. Rather than patiently waiting for something it means having patience with someone instead of getting angry with them. It is the virtue that opposes the sin Wrath.

      Delete
    7. But why did a Virtue increase the Taboo Lvl?

    8. She is gaining skills that leave the mortal realm :p

    10. ^yeah, she seems to be acquiring skills that shouldn't belong to mortals much less random spiders no metter how op she is

    11. Exactly. Anything that could overturn the natural order, namely the status of the divine (wether they be demonic or virtuous), could be considered the ultimate taboo acts.

  4. Is she becoming the Ghost Sprider?

  7. She got Heresy Nullity now, maybe Detection might not be a pain anymore? But she'll still need more skill points to get another skill required to use Magic though.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Thanks for all the chapters.

  9. i hope "detection" evolves to "magic detection", then come the long awaited magic usage *grin*

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. detection already includes that.

      Delete
    2. Maybe it'll evolve into a passive less stressful version of detection so she can actually use the magic detection aspect.

  10. I find that Tolerate might be better since it affects defence and resistance. From a Chinese POV.

    1. Patience and Pride are part of the 7 deadly sins/7 virtues

      Patience can also be called forgiveness. Rather than patiently waiting for something it means having patience with someone instead of getting angry with them. It is the virtue that opposes the sin Wrath. Perhaps toleration might be a better word for it but then people might not realize that it refers to one of the golden virtues

  11. I laughed so hard at this "《Skill proficiency reached. Skill 『Taboo LV5』 has become 『Taboo LV7』》"

    ReplyDelete
  12. Now, after she go to evil side (from [Pride] ), she return to a good side (by [Patience] ).
    But, if this is virtue, so, could [Temperance] be better?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. temperance and patience are two different virtues.

      Delete
    2. Temperence = practicing self-control and moderation. It opposes the sin Gluttony.

      Patience= a little bit confusing. Not the most common use of the word which is being able to wait for something. Patience can also be called forgiveness. Having patience with someone instead of getting angry with them. It is the virtue that opposes the sin Wrath.

      Delete
    3. When you think about it that way it makes sense that patience would involve being able to take abuse without increasing the ability to fight back.

  14. Patience and pride seem to go quite well together even if they are opposite virtues. Pride for the power and will to go forward. Patience to endure and stand strong with your endeavors.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I can understand why you'd think that but that's not it. The virtue that opposes pride is called humility.

      Patience doesn't refer to waiting. It refers to being patient with someone and not getting angry at them. It's sometimes called forgiveness which makes more sense but sounds a bit less profound. It is the virtue which opposes the sin wrath

      Delete
  15. I feel like the smart/weird choices is taboo, so maybe taboo is to show she is do something no monster would do, thereby ending in an evolution, transforming into something neither monster nor human. Would be interesting :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Taboo seeing how it went up even with a virtue which is supposed to be good means your going against the gods, probably. Who made skills the gods. Why would a skill say not to level it cause the gods don't want another god. Taboo is probably the path walked by a god seeing how all the ability that affect it say the user can become a god. Skill points probably cost different depending on the user's compatibility with the skill which makes detect weird. She has heresy nullify but her brain still can't handle the information it gives her so you could say her next goal is to evolve the thought skills before getting the next amount of skill points. What gets me curious is her special ability that is u known in her status. Maybe skill points dont exist or it makes learning skills easier because we looked at the other monsters skills and they are pretty equal depending on the monster. Or skill points is a human ability while monsters have the natural abilitis.

    1. well let me remind she didn't raise appraise to the 10th level so she probably is just unable to appraise enemy's skill points.

      Delete
    2. if taboo is the path walk by a god, I would find it strange that eating your kin is a part of it. If Heresy resistance does not help against detect pains, it might not be the pain it is protecting you from, but soul scan or detection of some sort.

      Delete
    3. God devil there in the end the same thing. Eating your relative is considered taboo just like pride but patience is a virtue yet it still gives taboo. God and devil are both paths that appear to be separate but lead to the same thing. U can also look at eating a relative as not caring about your family bonds. God's don't have a family unless we are talking about Greek gods.

  17. "Although most of them are useless, let's raise the skill proficiency irresponsibly if I'm free next time."

    "irresponsibly" doesn't really work here, that would mean that she's leveling everything without caring what it was, like taboo lol. I'd go with "thoroughly" instead.

    This one also stuck out to me "As long as MP continues" -> "As long as you have MP"
