day in this place)

After reaching the end of this current sloped passage, we arrive at the next flat area…

[Uoh!? Wa, woah!]

The first thing that I saw after getting off the slope, was a ball of fire flying towards me.
I pull up Pot Lid to protect myself from the sudden attack, but the fireball explodes right before making contact with Pot Lid.

Despite the suddenness, the heat from the attack didn’t feel much different than to what you’d feel from a hair dryer.

A gander at the direction where the attack came from, stood 6 staff-wielding goblins.
Was that a magic attack? I wasn’t expecting any goblins that could use magic…

Magic circles appeared at the tips of their staves indicating their intentions to fire additional spells, but Noru had already sprinted up to them and diced them all up before anything could happen.

[Fuu, magic-using monsters.
They are dangerous.]

[They may be goblins, but them being able to use magic makes them slightly dangerous.]

Noru returned moments after dispatching the goblins.
Mayhaps being the spellcasters they were, the goblins didn’t react in time much less attempt to escape, and became target practice for her.

Uーmu, magic-using monsters have finally appeared.
I currently have 60% magic resist, 50% from my Sacred Fabric and 10% from Estel’s passive.
I wouldn’t take much damage from simple goblins even if they ignored my defense.

[I wasn’t expecting to encounter magic-using monsters in here…]

[We’ll need to stay vigilant as we proceed deeper down.]

[Fighters, archers, and now mages too… There’s really all sorts of goblins huh.]

[You can say that they have a “full party” now.]

Now that monsters capable of using magic have made their appearance, we need to be prepared to deal with them when they do appear.

There really are many kinds of goblins living in this hole of a cave…

[There’s also this kindー]

[What type is that one?]

Shisuha showed me the thing she was holding onto.
It was a goblin that wore a black full body garb, its face was hidden under a black hood.

She was grabbing it from behind its neck, it was struggling in vain.

Is this… An assassin? They really are popping out of the woodwork.

[This one has been sneaking around close to us for a while now so I went and caught it.
This is one of those assassin types yes? I’ll get rid of it now in any case.]

Right after saying so, you could hear the sounds of her grasp tightening which ended with a dull crushing sound and the goblin twitching one last time.
Its limbs dangled down from its lifeless body, dispersing into light particles shortly after.

Holy shit!? Shisuha!? I may be used to seeing monsters getting smacked to the afterlife with weapons, but breaking necks with your bare hands is just… Being able to do such things without batting an eyelid unlike normal people like me, she really has balls of steel.

[Nn? Some black ones popped out.]

[Those are Black Goblins.]

[So that’s the Rare variant!]

[Probably, yes.]

We continued downwards, this time about 10-ish club wielding, totally black in color goblins appeared.
These are Black Goblins according to Noru.

Remembering the Black Orc being a Rare variant, these ones might be rare as well.

Gotta kill em all! This is basically manastones running at us!

[Uhoho, this is amazing.
Are Rare monsters going to start coming out from this point on?]

It might be efficient for us to hunt here.]

They may be Rare variants but they are still Goblins after all.
A single strike from my ultra awesome Excali-bar is enough to send them flying away in two pieces.

They didn’t even last 10 seconds from our all out attack.

Checking on my smartphone, I saw the manastone counter go up by more than 10 in this short of a timespan.

This is madness.
This efficiency is too delicious.
I already feel like I want to live in this cave.

Once we conquer this location, I’d want to farm for manastones here… Gotta figure out the monster respawn times here though.

[Hmm? We seem to have reached somewhere spacious.
And that’s…]

[It’s the same kind of walls as those in the Labyrinth.]

So the real deal starts from here on?]

Progressing beyond the rare mob spawn point, we have now reached a big spacious zone.
Along the way down we encountered more rare mobs, I have gotten more than 50 manastones from that one trek down.
Places like this Dungeon are fantastic.

As I gleefully arrived in this new zone, I notice the earthen walls have been replaced by the familiar glowing walls and ceilings of the Labyrinth.
It almost feels like we are in that same Labyrinth.

[I have yet to set foot in the actual Labyrinth, so this is what it looks like.]

[That’s ‘cause we went to the Labyrinth before Shisuha was summoned.
That aside, how are we supposed to proceed from here on?]

The change in scenery is an indication of our progression methinks, but I don’t see anywhere to proceed beyond this point, it’s a dead end.

Might this be a boss room? But I don’t see any boss monster.
What are we supposed to do in this zone?

Tilting our heads in confusion, we moved to the center of the zone.

[Wha, what!?]

[Thi, this is… a Magic Formation!?]

The moment we walked beyond a certain point in the room, the light of the glowing walls began to glow brighter.
Following that a Magic Formation made its appearance on the floor.

[O, Okura-san! U, use the escape item!]

[Ah, right, hold on a sec—–]

My head had yet to wrap around the sudden turn of events, but Shisuha’s words quickly reminded me of the Escape Device.

But, before I could shove my hand into my pocket to press the button, The green light of the Magic Formation peaked out and all I could see was that same green light.
