t battle, so it wasn’t broken by the shockwave, but I think it’s not strong enough to withstand it at close range.

And for the next, my eyes were glued to a particular skill.

“Barrier Art – Blue?” [Kekkai Jutsu – Ao]

“Do you know about Barrier Art, Sukuna-chan?”

“…Not really, I’ve only seen it before.”

I’m sure that after Defeat the Apostle battle, when Kohaku and I were fighting, Melty used a technique called [Barrier Art – Black] to protect the city of the beginning from the collateral damage.

I just happened to hear her voice when she activated it.
That’s why I can say for sure that I have seen it before.

“I’ll explain it to you in detail.”

Yukika smiled happily and pulled out some of the talismans from the lineup.

“As the name implies, warding is a skill that puts upwards.
There are two types of barrier a [Defensive Barrier] to prevent attacks from the outside, and [Support Barrier] to give an effect on the inside.”

“A simple example of a Support Barrier is a [Recovery Barrier] that keeps recovering HP when you are inside it.
The amount of recovery is not as great as what healer could cast, but the effect of recovery magic is dramatically increased when you cast it inside a Recovery Barrier.”

“That sounds like a buff.”

“Yes, that’s correct.
If only look at this skill, you can see that it specializes in support.
And even though there is a barrier that can reflect attacks, the barrier itself can’t attack at all.”

Is it a skill that activates a barrier as a supportive effect? It’s probably one of the master rank skills since I haven’t seen any talk of it being used among players so far.

But what path should you take to learn that?

If it’s simply a combination of magic, someone should have found it.
Is it possible that it has sorcery as a requirement? 

“But, the selling point is the defense effect.
Even the weakest [Barrier Art – Blue] is hard enough to block all intermediate-level magic.
The hardest of them all, [Black] is an absolute defense that completely blocks even the highest level of magic.”

“Oh, that’s amazing.”

“By the way, it blocks physical attack as well as magic, but unlike magic, the power of physical attacks is hard to disperse, so be careful.”

I see.
Come to think of it, in the magicless battle between Kohaku and me, Melty still choose to use [Barrier Art – Black].

She probably uses it since it had the hardest defense for magic and physical attack.

“By the way, does it have a specific area of effect and duration?”

“When you use the talisman, the area of effect is a few meters in the radius of the magician, and the duration is a uniform ten seconds.
It lasts for ten seconds unless it is destroyed, but you can’t attack until the ten seconds are up.”

“Hoho? So, the barrier will prevent the attack from inside as well?”

“It has the same amount of hardness inside and out.”

That is an effect that seems a little difficult to use in direct battle.

You can use it for pure defense, but you can’t use it for an instant guard.
You can’t attack back even if you’ve defended yourself from an attack.

However, I can use it to protect myself from ranged magic attacks, which I don’t want to be hit by, so I guess I could consider its use.

In the first place, this game doesn’t have as much of a humanoid monster as you might think.

The only human-type opponents I’ve fought, aside from Lowe, have been NPCs and the Siren Knights.
And I’m not sure if I could call that a human-type.

“By the way, The price for the Barrier Art starts at 50,000 iris for the cheapest one, [Barrier Art – Blue].”

I reflectively muttered when I heard the price.

Well, 50.000 is really a small amount of money for the current me.

I have a rotting wealth inheritance from the time I defeated Gold, and I also got about a million iris from the Giant Dragon Ars Nova.

In fact, I secretly think that [Blue] is the easiest to use.

Since it can block intermediate-level magic, then at worst, you can use it to protect yourself and then shatter it on your own for a follow-up attack.

You can’t use advanced magic and above unless you have skilled enough, and even if you do, you’ll end up getting stuck in the post-skill stun of the said skill.

“By the way, what’s the price of the top one?” 

“The green one, which can protect you from the higher classes, costs 300,000, and the black one costs over a million.
There is also a variety of support barrier of magic and sorcery spells, so go ahead and splurge.”

“Hmm, how honest.”

Perhaps because she already decided that I’m someone who smells like money when we first met, she honestly asked me to loosen my wallet and splurge.

Indeed, I can buy any of these items, and I can use them at my leisure.
After all, I have plenty of money thanks to Gold.

Since she made me remember Gold, I decided to ask Sekka about something that had been bothering me since that battle.

“Sekka, there’s something I’d like you to tell me.”

“What is it?”

“How much is this worth in Iris?”

What I took out of my inventory was a gold bar that had been dropped from Gold.

It made a loud thump when I placed it on the counter of the store.

This was a gold bar that I hadn’t sold because I didn’t need money, and I didn’t know its value.


Sekka’s eyes widened, and she let out a voice like a broken robot, and then she completely froze.
