Shatei Kyokufuri Yumi-Ojisan - Chapter 160
Data.151 – Old Bowman, Fuel to the Fire
The baboon unleashed multiple great fireballs.
This was a strong boss monster who could launch strong attacks at both close and long range.
It was so quick and didn’t leave an opening.
Yes, the strongest enemies always had a tight guard.
And so I had to make the opening myself!
I activated the charge attack as soon as the cooldown was finished.
Holy Splash put out the great fireballs.
Steam rose around and hid both Garbow and me…
Now, here was my chance!
“Garbow! Oil Shot!”
It was a new skill that was acquired through using a material item from the Machine God Windhole that was called ‘Machine Oil.’
It made Garbow and his clones spit out a brown oil.
It looked like something robots would do as a joke, but in this game, it was a proper combat skill.
After all, this oil made things very slippery…!
If it got on your legs, you would not be able to stand.
In other words, it would not be able to run or jump or come any closer to me!
So it will be possible for me to keep my distance and unleash my one-sided attacks!
However, if that was it, then this skill would be overpowered. And so there were weaknesses as well.
First, the oil dried very quickly. It wouldn’t be slippery after a few seconds.
It also didn’t deal any damage. It was just an obstruction skill.
And it was also useless against flying enemies. Because they wouldn’t slip if they didn’t land…
Well, after saying all of that like this, it sounded like it wasn’t that great of a plan after all. But it was not the case.
If the oil dried quickly, then the clones just needed to work together to spit oil on it constantly.
Furthermore, as the oil was flammable, that meant that fire attacks would do more damage.
I could make one of my main skills, Burning Arrow, have even greater firepower.
And even though it was useless against flying enemies, that wasn’t a big deal for an archer like me.
If an enemy took to the air in order to avoid the oil, I could just shoot it down.
Hehehe…. While not perfect, the plan worked well in different ways.
I think I will call it the Oil Panic Plan…!
Now, after hiding in the steam, I succeeded in hitting the baboon with oil.
From here, the baboon continued to slip. And so I just needed to target from a distance and…
But before I could attack it, the baboon was erupting into flames…!?
Was it because Garbow and his clones had launched follow up attacks…?
No, it wasn’t that! It was the baboon’s rage that caused the oil to light up!
The baboon was so angry that it was going to ignite, and the oil just sped up the process!
So…it was almost self-destruction!
I wasn’t even able to test out my new strategy…
Well, I intended on testing it out on different enemies anyway, so I suppose it didn’t matter.
More importantly, I learned that it could be effective to use Oil Shot if the enemy had fire type skills.
Learning how to use skills was part of growth.
“Now, the baboon’s drop item is… Hellfire Ragefur. That’s some sweltering fur…”
I put away the item that was flaming red fur, and searched for the last material that I needed to make a regeneration potion, the ‘Bonbon Mushroom.’
No matter how many strong enemies I defeated, this adventure would be a failure if I didn’t get the materials that I needed.
Now that I had killed the boss, the normal baboons stopped appearing.
And so I wanted to find it now and leave…
“…Ah! There it is! It’s very small and red.”
I found a red, heart-shaped mushroom growing near a tree.
Yes, this must be the Bonbon Mushroom.
However, one wasn’t enough, and so I needed to find more of them.
I wonder if there were any rules for what places they grew in…
“…Hmm? The tree that was near the Bonbon Mushroom had several leaves that were burning. While the other trees had fiery red leaves, they weren’t actually burning. So there must be something different about this tree…”
It turned out that I was right.
I was able to find other trees that had leaves that looked like they were on fire, and there were mushrooms at the bottom.
I picked them and put them in my item box.
Alright, now I had all of the materials I needed to make the regeneration potion.
Now I just need a craftsman to make it, and then I will be able to purchase them at stores.
While it was apparently expensive to buy them, I had plenty of money, so I didn’t mind.
In any case, I had finished what I came here to do, so it was time to get out of this hot and loud…lively forest…!
“Let’s go, Garbow… I’m sure you don’t like this heat, since you originally lived in the sea… Let’s go back…”
Garbow activated B Ocean Sphere so that it enveloped me.
It was very cool inside, and I felt quite refreshed.
Furthermore, Garbow was faster like this than when walking on four legs on the ground.
And so if I rode on top of him, we could stay cool while making our way through the forest quickly.
I hadn’t used it in the beginning, as there was a need to look at the ground and search for plants and mushrooms.
And so I had forgotten all about being able to move like this.
“Thanks, Garbow. This is a great help!”
I got onto Garbow’s back and we left the scorching forest behind us.
The three Windcloud items I gave to Mr. Yu would be finished soon. My preparations for the party tournament were going smoothly!
