ut 80% of this was about chopping wood of moonlight trees.”

At a glance, more than 80% of the 100 or so quest forms requested to chop wood of the moonlight trees.

And if you took a second look, another job is to go to village residences and chop firewoods.

It makes you wonder if this job is actually that hard?

“I’m not sure if it’s really that hard of a job or not… Some of the outside requests look pretty interesting, but… should I just chop wood for now? You know, it might like people say, if you do the unpopular job, it will give you a better reputation.”

“Wait, what do you mean by [you can’t]?”

While my mind was somehow determined on chopping wood, a comment intrigues me.

There were so many requests for wood chopping left.
There must be a reason.

“Status, huh?”

I’m not sure what status is needed to chop wood, so I thought about it for a while.

If I were to think about it simply, I think the answer is strength.
When it comes to chopping wood, muscle is the key.

It’s also good to have some dexterity.
In any case, I don’t think I will lack the status to do some wood chopping.

“Okay, so I’ll take the wood chopping for now, and if it appears to be no good, I’ll help with the processing of the moonlight trees.
Excuse me, Mr.

After exchanging opinions with the viewers, I decided to take the wood chopping quest for the time being and called out to Maruishi, who seemed to be doing some miscellaneous work.

When he heard my call, he looked up and came over to me with a satisfied look on his face.

“I see you’ve decided on a quest to take on.”

“For now, I’ll take the request to chop wood from the moonlight tree and help with the processing.”

“Oh, you’re going to do that?”

When I verbally requested the job I was going to take, Maruishi gave a very surprising response.

“Is it no good?”

“No, it’s very much appreciated.
But there are some conditions regarding the chopping of the moonlight tree.
What is your strength level, Sukuna?”

If it was muscle strength, the value would be quite high right now.
I’ve got a lot of extra bonus status points too, and it’s easy to forget that the [Douji] has a physical status correction that would be added as extra status too.

However, I haven’t kept track after I passed the 300 mark.

“Umm, it’s….
over 350.”

“Oh, that’s more than enough! Thank you very much!”

When Maruishi heard my strength value, he looked very happy and said so.
I was also surprised to see how excited he was.

“It’s the name of the most common tree in the forest.
It’s a wonderful wood that can be used as fuel, lumber, and even for armor, but it’s… also very hard.”


“You need a special tool to split it, and it takes a lot of strength to wield one.”

“Oh, so you need to have a strength level of 300 or more?”

I clapped my hands as Maruishi nodded his head as if saying that’s what he meant.

This is the part of the status that you were talking about earlier.
I see.
You don’t need strength to chop wood.
You need strength to hold the axe for chopping wood.

“Even though the demon tribe has excellent physical skills, it is still difficult to exceed 300 muscle strength without talent.
Even in this day and age, with menu cards that make levels and statuses visible, not many residents have reached that level.”

As Maruishi said, the strength status of the oni tribe is high.
If you don’t take into account bonuses, their base value is 1.3 times compared to the human race.

This means that at level 1, you have 13 STR as default, plus 10 bonus point, but since the demon race is always assigned one of their points to the magic stat by default, the maximum value at level 1 they could have is 22.

If we assume that players and NPCs have an equal bonus of 5 points per level and divide the remaining 278, we can see that if you focus the bonus for roughly 56 levels, you can exceed 300.

In fact, every level up increases your strength by 1.3 points, so you can add 13 points per 10 levels to the calculation.

If you keep doing this until you reach around level 50 or so, you’ll probably get over 300.

However, this is only for the case where can maximize the strength value distribution.

The bonus status points of NPCs are randomly assigned to some extent, so unless you are loved by a God, like Kohaku, your status will not be that convenient.

If you think about it, even if your stats are focused toward strength to some extent, you probably won’t reach 300 strength until you level up to around level 100.

I’ve also spent nearly 40 levels worth of bonuses points on strength alone.

“Is chopping wood for the moonlight tree only possible for a few people in the village?”

“Yeah, that’s right.
There are craftsmen who specialize in this, but to be honest, I’d rather have someone that strong guarding the village.
…still, the need for wood from moonlight trees is plenty, so I want to make use of them somehow.
That’s why this much or less always ended up as a permanent quest.”

So it’s not that this quest isn’t popular.
It’s simply that there are very few people who can chop wood from the moonlight trees.
It’s no use if you don’t have enough stats.

There aren’t that many players who are as focused as I am, and not all players with strength values over 300 come to the oni village.

At let’s say they did come.
I also understand if they choose to take the other quest.

Well, that said, this is the perfect quest for me right now.

“Okay, I’m going to do it will all my might!”

“Oooh, I can feel your determination! Then can you go here first?”

Maruishi then handed me a map of the village with one large red circle on it.

He probably meant that we should go to the place with this red circle.

“First of all, you can borrow an axe here and learn how to chop wood.
It’s a workshop, and the best woodworker in the village lives there.”

“I understand!”

“Well then, good luck!”

I walked out of the gathering center and waved to the smiling Maruishi.

“Let’s go!”

“Isn’t it funny that it feels like we’re going to war?”

I headed to the woodworker’s workshop to borrow an axe, while tilting my head at the viewer, who sometimes gets excited about reasons I don’t understand.


A note:

I did a quick calculation and found that the muscle strength value of the Sukuna was much higher than I imagined.
