85 Spider vs Fire Drake End

The eel wriggle its long body.
In the offense and defense so far, the eel seems to be quite cautious of me.
Although not as much as the monkey, this eel is smarter than other monsters.
That alone makes it hard for me to act.

《Skill proficiency reached. Skill 『Thought Acceleration LV2』 has become 『Thought Acceleration LV3』》
《Skill proficiency reached. Skill 『Foresight LV2』 has become 『Foresight LV3』》

The eel moved matching the voice of heaven.
Wriggling its body, and strike with its tail.
Of course I evade it.
But, the eel’s attack doesn’t ends there.
Immediately, its tail sweep sideways to attack me.
I fall back further and evade it.
This time it pulls back its tail, and it go towards me.

I have been waiting for that.

In the somewhat slow world caused by the “Thought Acceleration”, I stare at the approaching eel’s mouth.
I judge that I can avoid it, so I activate “Poison Synthesis” at the last moment.
I withdraw at once.

It’s the same strategy used on the catfish.
But, the effect is tremendous.
The eel taste my Deadly Poison as planned.

The eel’s HP decreases rapidly.
The painfully struggling eel acts violently in random.
I withdraw from the range of its rage.

In the end, if both have the offensive ability of the same one-hit kill, then the one who hits first, wins.
If that’s the case, then how to make the attack hits? The one with the great strategy will win. (patchhawaii.org)
In addition, my evasion ability is better than the eel’s accuracy.
Even if it has the power of “Accuracy” level 10 and “Probability Correction”, it won’t reach my “Evasion”, “Thought Acceleration” and “Foresight” combo.
Therefore, when I drag the eel out to the ground, my winning percentage increased a lot.

But, it’s not ended yet.
Although I said that it’s a one-hit kill, the eel probably doesn’t die in that hit.
Even the catfish didn’t died by a hit, so there’s no way the higher rank which is the eel will die.
Besides, the eel still has the power of that skill.

The eel’s HP recovers rapidly in front of me.

Life Transition:Consumes SP to recover HP』

The level 3 technique of “Fire Drake”.
SP is consumed, and HP recovers equivalent to that.
Although it’s impossible for it to recover its HP fully with its current SP, it can secure enough HP to endure the Deadly Poison.
Furthermore, in the appraisal result of the eel, 『Poison Resistance LV1』 and 『Automatic HP Recovery LV1』 are newly added.
Still, the poison in its body reduces its HP little by little, but the damage peak ended.

Well, there’s no way that I will wait for its revival without doing anything.

I wrap the eel’s body with the thread that’s made as strong as possible.
Still, it will probably burn out at once, but it doesn’t matter.
I just need it to stop the eel’s movement for a moment.

As planned, I succeeded in stopping its movement for a moment.
In that moment, I activate “Poison Synthesis” aiming at the eel’s face in rapid succession.
Many drops of Deadly Poison hit the eel’s face.

The eel tears the thread off and rages.
The poison that invaded from the mouth and the eyes decrease the eel’s HP without mercy.
The speed is not on the level that the newly acquired automatic recovery can do something about it.
The power is not on the level that the newly acquired “Poison Resistance” can endure it.
This weapon that I have sharpened in my life as a spider is not easy to protect with just a shield that’s made instantly.

The eel that don’t have the SP to recover its HP can never endure this attack.

    Imagine if she took Magic Manipulation
    Imagine how she’ll just need to confuse her enemy for a sec with Heresy Magic, throw deadly poison into their mouth, retreat, and watch as her enemy dying in agony.

    ………………. *sigh*

    • lesstea says:

      Btw, thank you for the translation. You’re doing a good job translating this stup— ….this spiderwoman. Keep the good work~!
      *throw some cookies*

    • Rota says:

      Except using magic also reguires you to have magic perception.

      she has it as part of detect but cannot use it since it causes more harm than help currently, so she still wouldn’t be able to use magic against it even with magic manipulation.

      besides, that can possibly be learned normally and thus a waste to spend your limited points on.

      I would think Telepathy would be of more use and cannot be learnt normally (at least not any time soon)

      • Anonymous says:

        I think telepathy would be a useful skill as well, but since she doesn’t exactly have anyone to use it on, I guess that’s the type of character she is. though, if she finally meets with her other classmates, she probably would really need it. they might try to kill her without knowing it’s her… or she might kill them…. I want to see that happen >:3

    • Woof says:

      Well, she still isnt sure if magic manipulation is the skill needed for magic conjuring. And because of detection she is now more carefull in getting new skills for skill points. Though im more interested in the hell magic.

  2. Wytchlord says:

    Damn, I want to know what the next evolutions will be 😀
    But srsly, the moment she can use detection, she will be going crazy in that labyrinth! As long as she has that she will be able to perform magic and decect everything around her … I wonder what the skill will evolve into?

  3. Someone says:

    Very thx for the chapter o/

  4. Skeithking says:

    She can’t use magic yet, anyway can wait to see what she can evolve into.

  5. Jack says:

    Damn, I really wanted to see the evolution options! I wonder if there’ll be another horizontal option like, uhh, “Small Deadly Poison Taratect” or if she’ll be forced into becoming a Poison Taratect.

  6. Jack says:

    Hmm.. maybe there’ll be a special evolution option based on the circumstances of evolution or the skills that she’s gained recently. Like a Psychic Taratect or a Flame Taratect.

  7. CynicalAlfar says:

    I for one would love to see her evolve into an ARACHNE. If she ends up as an evil demon queen I think it would be great.

  8. Yama says:

    Besides magic im interested in pride and what benefits it will give her. Even if she was able to cast magic, as a spider I don’t imagine her mp pool being big enough to rapid fire spells from a distance I imagine she would still need to heavily rely on her poison and thread and just use magic as a support.

  9. Jack Nathaniel Mikhail says:

    Dear Moonies, Thank you for the chapter my wonderful Author, Translator(s), (Editor), (donors)!
    Wow suddenly there are so many comments! I thought this novel wasn’t popular since I was the only one giving thanks

  10. jacobpaige says:

    Yep, I knew it as soon as I saw how big it was and how close she was to level 10. I wonder if she’ll go with another small variant or finally rank up to an adult?
