Chapter 8: The next skill to choose
I was desperate when I realized that I could not defeat Bugbear with Acceleration.
At first, I was excited by the unparalleled effectiveness of Acceleration.
But when I realized that I had wasted my time and energy choosing [Acceleration], I began to feel a sense of desperation.
However, I could not allow myself to stop advancing.
After all, at the moment of death, time returns to the moment just before the first attack from the Bugbear.
If I do nothing because I am in shock, I will just die.
I know I know this, but I can’t seem to turn it off.
“I hate it……”
So I decided to remember.
I thought about Darga, the man who killed Namia.
And the villagers who falsely accused me.
“I hate it, I hate it, I hate it…….!”
Hatred is my greatest driving force.
If it were not for this hatred, my heart would have been broken long ago.
I will definitely escape from the dungeon and take revenge with my own hands.
With renewed determination, I started walking again.
About the 305th attempt.
I had once again reached the room with the treasure chest.
Please select ‘one’ skill you wish to acquire from the following skills.
[Item Box] [Enhanced Recovery] [Enhanced Magic Recovery] [Shortened Chanting] [Acceleration] [Stealth].
[ Healing magic ], [ Warding magic ], [ Fire system magic ], [ Water system magic ], [ Wind system magic ], [ Earth system magic ], [ Alchemy ], [ Alchemy ], [ Usage magic ], [ Memory enhancement ].
[ Swordsmanship], [ Archery], [ Axe Art], [ Spear Art], [ Shield Art], [ Body Art], [ Status Disguise].
[ Physical Enhancement ], [ Presence perception ], [ Magic generation ], [ Fire resistance ], [ Water resistance ], [ Wind resistance ], [ Earth resistance ], [ Poison resistance ], [ Paralysis resistance ], [ Curse resistance ], [ Curses resistance ].
[ Appraise ] [ Provoke ] [ Strengthen Muscle ] [ Strengthen Endurance ] [ Strengthen Agility] [ Strengthen Strength ] [ Strengthen Eyesight ] [ Strengthen Hearing ]
So, if [ Acceleration ] and [ Stealth ] are no good, what will be the next skill to choose?
The only S-rank skill that might be useful is [Enhanced Recovery].
It may be a skill that can heal quickly even if I am injured, but in the first place, I often die instantly if I get hit by a blow.
It seems to me that it is meaningless to choose “Enhanced Recovery” after all.
So, I guess I would have to start looking for skills from the lower ranks.
First of all, A-rank skills involve only magic.
The magic-related skill is the “Magic Power Generation” skill, which is meaningless unless you possess magic power in your body, so it is naturally eliminated.
The only A-rank skill that has nothing to do with magic is “Memory Enhancement,” but I have no idea what use such a skill would be in my hands.
So, the next step is to choose skills from the B rank, but even those B rank skills are all based on the assumption that the person has a weapon.
For example, “swordsmanship” is not effective unless you have a sword in your hand.
Therefore, these skills are useless for me, because I don’t have a weapon in my hand.
However, there is only one B-rank skill that assumes you don’t have a weapon.
Well, if I go in order, it is this one.
That skill is —- [body art].

I thought he would be able to choose a new ability but saving the old one with that “save and reset” thing xD
Thanks for the chapter
