Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Chapter 115

Chapter 115.

115 Spider vs Fire Dragon ③

I must bring it to an end before the monsters that have gathered participate the battle.
Because in this situation where I need to use all my power to avoid the Fire Dragon's attack, I don't have the time to be concerned about the other miscellaneous matters.

The Poison Bullet that's fired at the same time as I avoid the Fire Dragon's attack vanished before reaching the Fire Dragon.
The magic construction is interfered by the effect of the "Reverse Scale" skill and the power is weaken by the flame of Flame Cloak.
The weakened Poison Bullet burned out completely before reaching the flame armor.
Even though the Fire Dragon itself didn't took any action to intercept it, the Poison Bullet was neutralized with that alone.

The defensive ability that it's impossible to inflict damage by a half-hearted attack even with an instant death class offensive ability.
In addition, it has the speed higher than me.
If it feels like it, it should be able to avoid the Poison Bullet with its speed and the power of the "Evasion" and the "Great Probability Correction".
I'm really sick of it.

The opponent's HP gradually decreases thanks to the "Evil Eye of Curse".
But, the one that's decreasing was the effect of the "Satiation" skill.
Unlike me, the Fire Dragon's HP raised to 1200 that's the limit of the skill level.
MP is also similar.
Although only the SP was not stocked to the limit, there was still a large amount.

To be frank, it's impossible to reduce this amount completely with the Evil Eye.
I will run out of energy before that.
I can't expect much from the decrease of the status too.
Although it's a little, it's decreasing.
But, the decreasing speed is considerably slow compared with the other monsters.
This need to take a considerable amount of time to be able to realize the effect.
As expected, I will die before that.

The "Evil Eye of Paralysis" that has the possibility to reverse the situation.
I shouldn't expect much from this either.
The Fire Dragon's "Abnormal Condition Resistance" rose to 2.
If it's because of the skill proficiency is close to the limit, then it's fine, but in case that it's not, that means that my opponent's resistance rises quickly because of the accumulation of my  paralysis power.
As expected, it doesn't completely protects it, but it seems to be too convenient to wish for the Fire Dragon to be paralyzed.

That is also not good, and this is also not good.
When it becomes like this, the means left for me is limited.
The most effective method among that is to drive in poison at the level that surpasses the opponent's resistance.

My Deadly Spider Poison is the most lethal weapon that I have.
Even if the Fire Dragon has the "Abnormal Condition Resistance" skill, I don't think that it can come out unhurt after receiving my Deadly Spider Poison.
But, once is probably not enough to kill this guy.
Even if I hit a lucky hit, it's useless.
I must hit a more certain and strong attack.

But, the Flame Cloak is a hindrance.
Intense flame that my HP will decrease just by grazing it.
I can't attack unless I penetrate this.
If I can't do that, I will get burned even if I shift to attack.

While thoughts are repeated, Body-in-charge avoids the Fire Dragon's attack desperately.
Attack is completely abandoned, and concentrates in evasion.
Even if Magic-in-charge shoots an interception magic, it's blown off easily in front of the combo of "Reverse Scale" and Flame Cloak.
The Poison Mist that killed a massive amount of monsters previously is meaningless against Flame Cloak.

The Fire Dragon soars up into the air.
I who saw that quickly adjust the poison using "Poison Synthesis".

Immediately after that, flame surged from the Fire Dragon's mouth.
A very large breath attacks the ground.
It's the Hell Flame Breath that's acquired at "Fire Drake LV10".
The wide-range annihilation breath of death blows off the surrounding ground, melts it, and it changes into the new sea of magma.

I jumped on the spur of the moment, and activate Weak Poison by "Poison Synthesis".
I generated the maximum amount that can be synthesized, and evacuate in the huge drop of water.
Because I set the damage relation to the lowest, there's not much decrease in my HP.

I evacuated into the Weak Poison's drop of water almost at the same time as the Fire Dragon's breath covered the ground completely.
The Weak Poison evaporates only by the aftermath.
My HP decreases even though I didn't receive a direct hit.
I extend a thread to the ceiling before the Weak Poison evaporates completely and evacuate in a hurry.

I escape along the ceiling without looking aside.
Although the Fire Dragon pursues me naturally, I succeeded in escaping from the magma that was newly formed.

A fireball approaches me.
I kick the ceiling and let my body move in the air.
A fireball explodes at the position where I was until a while ago.
My body that was thrown into the air is pulled by the gravity and falls.
And the Fire Dragon approaches with its fang in the air as if it's waited for it.

I pulled the thread that I fired to the ceiling in secret that's hard to be seen by the Fire Dragon.
At the same time, I synthesize Deadly Spider Poison with the paralysis attribute.
The Fire Dragon's body passes right under me.

The Fire Dragon does a tailspin in the air.
I witnessed with my enhanced vision that the Fire Dragon twists its body to evade from swallowing the poison at the moment it closes its mouth.
The strategy of using poison as a substitute that buried all of the monsters in the middle layer so far was defeated.

But, I use that interval and I succeed in going down to the ground again.

However, it was a failure.
The monsters called by the Fire Dragon have gathered on the ground.
I who was unable to move being surrounded by monsters.

And, the Fire Dragon releases the Hell Flame Breath again.
My body was swallowed in the flame without any resistance.
And, that body was burned thoroughly by the flame without any resistance, and not even cinders remained.



  2. Ouch. The situation really took a turn.

  3. Damn....Fire dragon, if you re a man fight one on one

    1. He's not a man. He's a dragon.

    2. Can you blame him? A place where your life is on the line every single day, you learn to not underestimate your opponent, grow powerful and suddenly you see a never seen before enemy before you....

    3. Heh. If you're a man fight that female one on one. It could be a female dragon.

    4. Dragons tend to have a large amount of pride this seems unlike a dragon to call a bunch of small guy to help 1v1 should make the dragon happy p.s. think if someone walked in on a 1 meter spider vs a giant dragon plus minions what goes through their head?

  4. Nooooooo!!!!! orz

    Thanks for the chapters!


    PS : thank you for this chapter

  6. Nai wai~ It does sound like our Kumoko get a Fatality at that moment~ How in the world can she survive that?
    Get a meatshield? deadly poison a fire drake in a flash then use it body as shield?

    1. Shadow-magic clone or i'm a 10 year old girl.... Or something to that effect.

    2. Actually, hiding in shadow? Still the second to last sentence sounds really dangerous~

    3. Something along the lines of a duplicate body obviously. I mean, if the translator did translate that part correctly (which we all know we have to take with a decent amount of salt) then a simple analysis shows it. First she says 'My body was swallowed in the flame', however the next sentence she changes it to 'that body' denoting that since it is now dead is not a part of her anymore and that she has more than one.
      And if that isn't the case she'll simply get a "regrown body from shadow" skill or something like that >.>

  7. Like I said whip out that Abyssal magic. I'm guessing the patience or divine protection saves her.

    1. Ah, I forgot she was practicing space magic. A short distance teleportation would be the most practical way to escape.

  8. I have been trying to get an understanding of the series using Google translate *shudders.* All I can say is that Chapter 120 might be interesting.

    I can imagine her evolution into an Arachne, she conquers a town by selling her silk then going to a restaurant and buying good food. Then she realizes that ultra fine silk sells at a higher price, makes a lot of it, sells it, and buys more food. Then she finds out that her knowledge of the dungeon sells at a high price, she sells that and buys more good food.

  9. Pray for the HP:1 remainder trick, pray pray pray

  10. Oh noo.. is our Kumo-chan in trouble?!

  11. OTL

    thank you so much for all your translations!!!!!!!!

  12. That is also not good, and this is also not good.
    This sentence is confusing, shouldn't it be "this is also good" in there somewhere cuz it's repeating the same sentence twice?

    1. It's actually supposed to be "That's no good, this is also no good". As in she's emphasizing the fact that all the tactics she's considering probably won't work.

  13. "Flame Clad" should probably be Flame Cloak.

  14. Thanks for the chapter Turb0!

  15. Whelp. Time to call for Mommy, Kumoko~
