I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 218
Chapter 5-20. Skill Check
Checking out my skills …….
Come to think of it, I think I’ve neglected those skills since I took human form.
I’m going to take this opportunity to learn the ones I think I can use.
“For starters, do you have any ranged attack skills?”
“Ah, I have a few.”
The most common ranged attack skills I have are the Water Spear Volley, Reamed Water Spears, Infinite Water Manipulation, and the Earth Spirits.
The ones I haven’t used much are the Tenwari, Destructive Rock Slide, Water Bullet (Slash), and Air Compression …….
Reamed water spear is the one I’m best at.
And water spear volley is also one of my most favorite.
As for the infinite water manipulation, it is as easy to control that as breathing, but it may be a little difficult to sustain since I have to try to suffocate the enemy if I want to kill them using this skill..
As for the earth spirit, it seems to be able to move quite a substantial amount of the land just by using it once, so I think it’s a good one to use for eradicating the enemy.
And it only uses 100 MP.
With my MP of 1,251.
I can use it 12 times, by simple calculation.
As for Heaven Split, I think it can slaughter a good number of enemies if I cleave them horizontally.
However, I don’t have the confidence to cleanly slash them horizontally.
It may not be able to kill enemies at a distance.
As for the demolition, I’ve never used it, so I don’t know.
The water bullet can attack continuously like a machine gun.
But considering the MP consumption, I think the earth spirit is more cost-effective.
Air compression would take a long time to create and would gouge the ground quite a bit.
And I was using it above the water.
I wonder what would happen if I did it on the ground. ……
“Ah, I’m sorry to mention it. That thing I gave you was useless, wasn’t it?”
“Oh, …… that snake. It collapsed along the way.”
“I think there was a distance at which I could manipulate it. I don’t know the exact distance yet.”
“I see. Well, it won’t be used again this time.”
I don’t think I will make many of those.
“Well, the skills I just explained are all the ones I can use. The rest are things I can use for battle, recovery skills, and defense.”
“I see. …… Then I will explain mine.”
The ranged attacks that Houen could use are …….
Fire Feather, Fire Arrow, Fire Barrage, Flame Manipulation, Flame Bomb, Blazing Flame Pillar, and Bud of Crimson Lotus
These all seem to be ranged attacks, and he said he burned several enemies with these while he was retreating.
“What’s a Fire Barge? Something like bullets?”
“Mm-hmm. It can shoot a lot of fireballs, and you can assume it has a little bit of tracking ability.”
“That’s handy. ……”
“Yeah, but thanks to my low magic power, I can’t use it that often. ……”
Now that he’s said that, Houen’s status is low for a strong skill set.
Reizen and mine is quite high compared to him.
Why it is, I wonder. ……
Could it be that this guy is …….
“You chose to evolve early?”
“If you’re forced to eat bugs all the time, surely you’d want to grow up and leave the nest!”
“Y-you’re right. …….”
I-I see. …….
Houen, unlike us, chose to evolve quickly, which is why it has such a low status. ……
But this is extremely low, …….
If I had chosen this method of evolution, I might have ended up like that too.
No thanks ……
“Back to the point. My skills basically allow me to kill the enemy once and definitely catch on fire. I have an even greater advantage.”
“I wish I had wind magic. …… Unfortunately, I don’t have any.”
“And another thing, I don’t expect that much. And I’ve already run out my MP after using about four skills.”
“Your fuel consumption is as bad as ever. ……”
“Yea, ……, but once it’s triggered, it can be used for a long time. You can leave the flying monsters to me.”
Houen can also fly.
It shouldn’t be a problem if I leave that part to him.
The question is on my part.
The most deadly of all my skills would be Heaven Split.
I think it would be a hell of a lot easier to lash it to the side.
The rest is …….
“You don’t know what kind of skill that is, do you?
“Ah, ah. What all I know about it is pretty powerful. But it’ s a ranged attack, for sure.”
Well. Use it when the situation calls for it, because you can’t use a dangerous skill unless you have to.”
That was a helpful advice.
Then, let’s do everything we can at this point, shall we?
Anyway, I’m done with understanding the skills for the time being.
The rest was up to me and Houen.
“Houen is a ranger, right? What should I do?”
“If you can defeat the enemy without letting them get too close, you’ll be fine. I want you to reduce the burden on the adventurers as much as possible. Well, let’s just say that I want you to be flexible.”
“No plan, either huh.”
“It would be easier for Ouren if you could do whatever you wanted, wouldn’t it?”
“Well, that’s true, but ……”
I’m not sure if it’s a good idea.
I’m the only one who can move freely.
Everyone has their own role to carry out.
I’m an adventurer too, so it’s okay if they rely on me a little bit. ……
“Ouren. Trust your fellow adventurers a little more.”
“You have only been here a short time, both as a human and as a monster. You know more than anyone else that you are strong. That’s why you can do anything. So I know you want to help and save them. But for now, just watch what you do and let those guys do the rest.”
I had no intention of …… doing that myself.
But what Houen said was right, my way of thinking is like saying I don’t trust the rest of my crew.
This way of thinking was …… very rude and disrespectful.
“I understand that you want to help, but for now, just watch, do what you can and let those guys do the rest. At that time, I devoted myself to stopping the enemy, but I survived because they believed in me and prepared to withdraw. So trust your friends. We are your buddies, aren’t we?”
“……, how can you say such cringe lines like that?”
“I’m serious you know?”
“I know, I know. I’ll be careful from now on. But if you get in trouble, I’ll come get you, okay?”
“Yeah, that’s fine. That’s why I’m giving you the freedom to do what you want.”
Satisfied with my words, Houen stood up and looked outside.
Apparently the adventurers have returned.
It’s getting somewhat noisy inside the castle.
It seems they are here.
“What is it?”
“The Knights. We’re not going to go into battle, but Maria and I nailed them to the wall so they’d be ready to defend this place.”
“What the …… something like that happened? If they would have helped out, even a little bit, we would have been able to reduce the casualties a little bit.”
“There is something fishy about this. I heard that the prince has the authority to control the Knights.”
“Ha? What are you talking about? That can’t be possible.”
“But it is true. The knight commander said so. And …… I found a butler who has been brainwashed. I don’t know what he’s been brainwashed by, but that butler is nowhere to be found.”
“Isn’t that a big deal!”
Yes, it is a big deal.
