The next day, I decided to head for the dungeon again.
As usual, I applied purification to my entire body and left the inn after freshening up.
These days, I rarely take off my clothes or change them. I don’t have to wash my body or my clothes, so it comes naturally to me. However, the white particles that come out after purification cannot be removed with just a light dusting of my clothes, so sometimes I have to remove all my clothes and clean them off. That’s the only time I take off my clothes. There’s nothing I can do about that.
I paid a silver coin to enter the dungeon, and as I walked to the transition monument, I thought about yesterday.
I was amazed to find cheese yesterday. I didn’t expect to find cheese.
The man next to me was suspicious of me because I was staring at him so much, and after that, I was able to hear what he had to say. He told me that in this town, they make cheese from milk, which is a drop item of Desert Cow.
However, the price of the cheese was much higher than I had imagined. I heard that even a fist-sized piece of cheese can cost as much as a gold coin. But when you think about it, that might be natural. The raw material for cheese is milk, and the only way to get milk is to drop it from dungeons. As there is a limit to the weight that one adventurer can bring back, adventurers will not bring back cheap items. As a result, the cost will surely go up.
I arrived at the 16th floor, glanced at the many adventurers heading for the 15th floor, and activated the spell Light Source. I proceeded to the back.
I’m used to this floor already. The main corridor, the shortest route between the stairs, can be navigated without looking at a map. The sixteenth floor is still crowded because of its proximity to the monument, so I’ve always hunted on the eighteenth floor, which is relatively uncrowded.
And there was one more thing I was used to.
An orc appeared from the darkness ahead.
The Orc dashed forward, closing the distance between us at once, and swung his rusty sword down.
Orcs can be cautious or bold, they are interesting opponents.
While thinking about this, I avoided the blow by moving a step to the left and thrust the spear in my right hand into the orc’s throat with all my might, pushing it down.
After a while, the orc disappeared, leaving behind its drop item.
Now that I was used to the monsters on this floor and my level had increased, I was able to defeat the orcs much more easily than before.
After all, leveling up – the effect of the Goddess’ blessing is tremendous. And after all, the experience value efficiency of dungeons is very good. You can fight enemies within minutes of entering a dungeon, so it’s very easy to earn money.
I continued to walk through the dungeon using the shortest route, defeating monsters as I went, passing through the 16th floor, then the 17th and 18th floors, and now I was drinking wine from a canteen while looking at the 19th floor from the bottom of the stairs between the 18th and 19th floors.
The stairs that connect the floors of the dungeon are a safe zone where no monsters can enter. So it’s safe here.
I suddenly turned my gaze to the spear in my right hand that came into view.
This spear has also been used quite a bit. No, it’s been less than half a year since I got it, so it’s not that long, but as a result of using it from morning till night every day, it’s been damaged considerably.
I have been re-sharpening and adjusting it periodically, but I think it’s time to stop. After all, spears are incompatible with skeletons. Even monsters that are said to be “bloodless” have blood, tears, and flesh, and if you cut off their flesh and damage their organs, you can eventually defeat them. However, in the case of skeletons, as the saying goes… well, I don’t know if “as the saying goes” is applicable for them, but anyway “they have no blood, no tears, nothing but bones”. So, to defeat them, you have to cut off their bones or smash them. [T/N: I don’t know this saying “Chimonamidamonai shi hone igai nai” “血も涙もないし骨以外ない” or “No blood, no tears, nothing but bones”. I don’t know the meaning of the idiom so is anyone kind enough to explain? All I know is that “no blood, no tears” can be used to describe someone heartless.]
So, while I was smashing it using the spear or catching the rusted sword, my spear was now falling apart.
I thought about buying some other weapon, but there was no place to keep the spear while I was using another weapon. Most innkeepers have rooms that are bolted from the inside, so it’s not the kind of place you can leave your stuff while you’re out during the day. I thought about tying it to my back, but I was afraid that a long spear, let alone a sword, might get caught on the wall or the ground when I bent down or moved violently.
It’s not like in games.
