Dungeon Exploration with Absolute Accuracy ~ Level Up by Shooting Arrows from a Safe Zone ~ - Chapter 90
Cattle Hunting and New Armor
The grassland is green as far as the eye can see.
Mach bull is a white cow running at a tremendous speed while raising a cloud of dust. I aimed at the head of mach bull with [Weakness Lock].
Then, I continued to shoot out a transparent arrow created with a [Magic Arrow] attached to my Dragon Tree Bow.
The transparent arrow flies after mach bull, running across the grassland at a tremendous speed and closing the distance between them.
The long-range attack is a sure hit the mach bull because of [Weakness Lock], so if I keep going like this, it should catch the mach bull.
As my aim, the transparent arrow was in a hot dead heat with mach bull, but eventually, the distance gradually narrowed and…
The transparent arrow pierced mach bull’s head and made a loud sound.
Mach bull then fell to the ground as it was.
I watched him for a while to see if he would start moving again, but he showed no sign of moving.
-Level increased by 5-
I also heard the sound of the level-up notification, after confirming that it had completely stopped moving, I used Dagger of Speed to quickly cut off mach bull’s head, which was still dripping a little blood and had an arrow stuck in the top of its head, to drain the blood.
“Phew ……, that’s all right.”
I muttered to myself as I dealt with the mach bull I had just defeated.
The Bullfighting Dungeon, a C-rank dungeon, is where I am now.
I’m here because when I asked Masa-san to create the armor, he asked me to do a request quest, and I was here to try out the armor he made for me.
“Umm…it didn’t get in the way when I’m shooting arrows, and it didn’t get in the way when I’m moving or swinging the dagger.”
And the only thing I learned from this battle was that the armor made by Masa-san was wonderful.
The armor Masa-san made for me was a long coat dyed black that reached up to my knees.
It was much lighter than the leather armor I had been using up to now, yet, its performance as a piece of armor was quite high.
To be more specific, it was made from the hair of an A-rank monster called silk sheep.
Silk sheep’s hair is a high-end product that has the texture of silk but also the softness of sheep’s wool.
So, thanks to that, it is highly shock absorbent, stretchable, and much sturdier than leather armor.
Plus, it’s a lot more defense because it can protect your whole body, plus it protects my vital areas, and it dyed it black so it wouldn’t stand out when I use [Stealth].
“…… Well, that came at a price.”
According to Masa-san, the silk sheep used as a material for making the armor I ordered was quite costly because it was an A-rank monster.
The price was a whopping 11.5 million yen.
When I heard that, I thought my eyes would pop out of my head.
Just thinking about the ashes I got from defeating the demon fire, twin demon flame, and seven demon flame in the Fiery Light Dungeon and not selling them was terrifying.
“But it would have been worth it.”
I haven’t tested its defensive capabilities yet, it’s custom-made, and it doesn’t have any of the discomforts that hindered movement and it was a problem with the leather armor, and most importantly, it’s light!
The best equipment for me is to use my quickness in battle.
“The request is not that difficult, so let’s get it.”
This time, Masa-san asked me for two requests.
One is a C-rank dungeon, a grassland-type dungeon with this vast grassland spreading out at every level. Deliver 10 pieces of mach bull leather, a monster that appears in the Bullfighting Dungeon.
The other is also a C-rank dungeon, with the same trees as the Dungeon of Fresh Green. The request is delivery of 15 hard caterpillar strings that appear in the Dungeon of Forest.
The Association has made a firm request, so let’s confirm I get it done right.
Well, for now, it’s mach bull.
Mach bull, as its name suggests is a bull-type monster that rushes forward at a tremendous speed, said to be as fast as a bullet train.
Don’t tsukkomi that it’s a mach train.
But, whether it is because of this or not, its movements are monotonous, and it attacks only in a straight line, so it is not so difficult to avoid it once you get used to it.
“Well, I still need to be on my guard, though.”
Mach bull’s running speed exceeds 200 kilometers per hour.
If you’re an explorer who can dive into a C-rank dungeon, it’s unlikely that you’ll get run over without noticing and die instantly, but it’s usually dangerous.
In particular, mach bull’s leather and horns are quite sturdy, so they won’t get hurt even if they fall.
“Well then, let’s defeat the remaining 9!”
In case you are wondering, both requests have a week to go.
There is still time, but I want to finish the request as soon as possible.
With that in mind, I put the mach bull I had defeated in the [Item Box] and started running to find the next mach bull.
