Ch. 175 Colossal Experience Points

“Dugong!”

[Resistance skill [[Fall Resistance]] level increased from 5 to 6.]

I receive a huge backlash from the belly of the giant centipede and my body is blown off. [[Roll]] naturally unravels in midair, and I end up with the front of my body scraping against the ground.

I was prepared, but my entire body is outrageously sore. If it isn’t enough, ending the suffering of the giant centipede isn’t something I can do. I clear away the sand with my hand, open my eyes and look forward.

It didn’t break the shell, but it appears that I have made a dent. From the severed part of the giant centipede, its insides are flowing out more and more.

[1536 experience points obtained.]

Wow… As one would expect of the giant centipede. As expected the amount of experience points is pretty high.

[Title Skill [[Walking Egg:Lv–]] activated, 1536 bonus points obtained.]

Ah, is that so? Experience points were doubled. I was overwhelmed by the number 1536 and forgot. Thank you giant centipede. I’ve had various grudges, but with this at the very least I can offer you much thanks.

[[[Evil Plague Dragon]] level has risen from 44 to 57.]

Alright, I increased 13 levels all at once! With this the next evolution is near. From now on, I need to start accumulating good deeds. I wonder if there are any lost people somewhere? Not that there were many humans who could survive in this desert anyway.

[Title Skill [[Big Eater (Giant Killing)]] level increased from 1 to 3.]
[Title Skill [[Pest Killer]] level increased from 3 to 4.]

My titles increased too? Getting two rank ups is unexpected, you know. Yeah, the giant centipede would normally win ten out of ten times. Yet such unreasonable successes were achieved multiple times.

[Characteristic skill [[Presence Sensing]] level increased from 4 to 5.]

Oh, [[Presence Sensing]] also increased? Please [[Dragon Scale Powder]] and [[Plague Breath]], please don’t increase… Speaking of desires, [[Flight]], [[Dragon Scales]], and [[Automatic HP Recovery]], I’d be saved if those would increase however…

… …

…Aahh, is this the end? What with this, even though I feel like it always comes smack me when I’m not paying attention, it almost never strikes when I’m on guard. As I thought, it’s not playing around with me, I guess it is God’s Voice-san.

I would appreciate the [[Wrecking Ball Drop]] skill already, okay? I’m somewhat disappointed. What, is the name decided by me or you? I’m not certain, [[Nutcracker]] was accepted however.

Well, that’s fine I guess? Should I check my status?

Okay, it rose quite well. Nonetheless, I still have not reached to that Hero’s level…

Now what was the status of that guy again? If I recall correctly his HP was more than 600, and all the other stats were around 350. About the only one that even comes close to competing with him is attack power, huh? No, that guy was also holding a sword. By including the sword, would it not go to 400 or over?

I still have to further raise my level. I don’t think there are any fellows stronger than the giant centipede… And thus, there are many fellows of moderate strength. I guess, there is the red ant’s nest. Too bad for them, I’m not going with just the purpose to destroy them.

Since those red ants are also considerably strong. I can’t go until after I’m prepared.

The day is already late, I will join the ball rabbit after eating a little and gathering the monster parts, from there I should sleep.

But, before moving…

“GUuoo!”

[[Rest]]!

Light wraps around my body, my body’s pain is slightly reduced. It is not necessary because I do not have any severe wounds due to [[Automatic HP Recovery]], but I need to practice. When it is possible to recover only a little bit in case of an emergency, I’ll raise its level to increase the chances of getting more evolution possibilities.

“GUuoo! GUuoo!”

[[Rest]]! [[Rest!]]

Yep, as expected, restoration magic is good. Somehow it feels like my heart has been cleansed. It may just be my imagination.

[Normal Skill [[Rest]] level increased from 1 to 2.]

Alright, because I am an evil dragon I was worried that the skill level of [[Rest]] would not increase, but that does not seem to be the case.

  1. 13 levels eh? not bad, I wonder if he will try to max out his level and then fight the hero or try to max out and then level up to match the hero in stats, he gets weaker every time he evolves and resets to level 1 and that takes time to recover again.
    Thank you for the Chapter.

    • I think that he will decide that based on what options he has for evolution and if there is the possibility that there is something that could be stronger then himself at max level darkness dragon

    • The first few levels are pretty fast to gain, he should be fine so long as he doesn’t rush in immediately at level 1. Not that there is much chance of evolving in time with his current mentality. Burning MP on [rest] spam to raise the skill when he doesn’t know where the ant nest is? He might need those MP for other things so he should be giving [automatic HP recovery] a chance while just waiting around and should definitely be travelling while skill grinding. He contemplates rescuing people for hero points. He is still reluctant to just spam plague attacks even against a high-defence opponent because it would take too long or something and is trying to avoid skill gains. Not to mention sending away his allies who now miss out on experience gains and would almost certainly have survives given the centipede’s single-mindedness and their ability to choose the battlefield and hide underground with dig and internal storage… . If it were any other time I would be all in favour of the mucking about, but with an extreme time-limit like this he really needs that ridiculous ruthless-grinding attitude that the tryhard edgelords are always clamouring for.

      Just watch, I am sure that instead of filling himself up on abundant(and apparently curse-free? Did the author forget? Did Petey have a curse resist I missed?) centipede meat he will complain about gross bugs and run off to cook a two-course meal. He isn’t going to get malnourished over 4 days. Not to mention running off to sleep when he still has plenty of HP/MP and he can almost certainly be more active in the cool of night. Again, normally I would roll my eyes at this stuff, but he has 4 days, the highest levels are going to take a lot of grinding, he wants some experience with his new form… he desperately needs to hurry and he is behaving like it is a tea party! Has he never pulled an all-nighter in his past life? Never rushed a deadline? If this were a morality thing then sure, but he already decided to depopulate the desert. If he were choosing relaxation or self-satisfaction over power then great, but he has already chosen to grind a new metamorphosis. Sadly he is just dithering and procrastinating when lives are on the line, and it is frustrating and he will probably come out of it smelling like roses except for some negative title-skills.

  2. Wow 13 lvl jump, in rpg that is massive increase if you already middle or later lvl upgrade
    But with 18 lvl gap for evolution, stat gap against fake hero and not to mention downgrade after that, still can’t see how he going to measure against the fake hero?
    One thing is force grinding with the red ant but in lest than 3 days that doesn’t seem enough, at best 4-5 lvl up unless there other alternative which is none currently
