Chapter 18: Gray Brigade Clan’s Collapse│Read translated stories and daily updates at: Awebstories.com
“We’re now going to try to conquer the dungeon!”
The City of Nelsoy
At the dungeon’s entrance.
Garga is currently delivering a speech.
His speech was delivered to the elite of the [Gray-Brigade-Clan], who were about to clear the dungeon.
There are a total of 99 people.
“This isn’t just an expedition! We’re going to defeat the boss that no one has ever defeated before. We’ve been training and preparing for this. How can we possibly fail? We must not fail! Let’s win, men!”
Garga concluded, and the clan members yelled enthusiastically, “Woooooooooooo!”
“Hey, the [Gray-Brigade-Clan] is about to defeat the last boss.”
The speech was heard by many people who happened to be nearby.
Except Ninya, no one had conquered the dungeon in the city of Nelsoy.
However, the [Gray-Brigade-Clan] was completely familiar with the dungeon up to the 49th level before the boss.
The map depicts in great detail the characteristics of each floor’s demons.
The [Gray-Brigade-Clan] was extremely cautious when attacking the final boss.
Many skilled adventurers have died in the past while attempting to defeat the final boss.
That kind of strength was expected of the boss.
That is why they want to clear the dungeon with a large group of 99 people.
They fought the demons sparingly in order to conserve their strength.
Then they made great strides to the 48th floor.
However, there was one concern.
“We’re not doing so well as usual.”
The adventurers said.
Garga was thinking of something similar.
not as vigorous as usual. can not move quickly. getting tired so easily. But there was no problem in the fight, so they’d gotten this far thinking it was all in their heads.
“The 49th floor is up ahead.”
The floor preceding the boss.
This 49th layer is home to a unique type of demon.
It is a demon that grows stronger as the number of adventurers increases.
If you encounter this demon alone, you should be able to defeat it easily.
It may be a little more difficult with 10 adventurers, but you will defeat it.
But it is impossible for 10 people to defeat the 50th floor boss.
They brought 99 adventurers for this reason.
They were one step ahead of the number of players, because if the number of players exceeded 100, it would become unmanageable on the 49th floor.
Garga was certain that with 99 people, the demon in the 49th layer would be extremely powerful, but if everything went as planned, they could be defeated.
“All right, let’s go!”
He called out to the adventurers who were resting in a safe zone free of demons.
They then proceeded to the 49th floor.
The demon’s screams filled the air as soon as they stepped inside.
Demons of undefined rank fall under the EX class.
It was covered in black scales and had enormous wings.
It is a unique demon that grows in size in proportion to the number of adventurers against it.
“All right, then, let’s go as planned!”
The [Gray-Brigade-Clan] has fought the Gigante-Dragon many times.
They’ve even beaten the demon in the past.
As a result, they know everything there is to know about the Gigante-Dragon, including its strength, weaknesses, and attack habits.
This time, the goal is to defeat the boss on the next floor.
So the Gigante-Dragon must be defeated with no casualties.
And Garga was certain that if they stuck to the usual plan, it would work.
The first strategy was as follows.
The Gigante-Dragon will always spit out a fire breath at first, which those with large shields will completely block.
In the vanguard, a group of ten shield-bearers deploy their shields.
And in the rear, wizards started chanting to inflict heavy magical damage.
The Gigante-Dragon spits out a breath of flame, as expected.
It’s an attack they’ve seen many times.
And Graga knew that with such a large shield, they would be able to block it completely.
The sound of shield cracking was heard.
And then the breath hits the shield-bearers.
“What in the world is going on?!”
The shield had never been broken before.
Is it possible that the breath is becoming more powerful?
“Don’t be alarmed! Release the spell now!”
All of the magicians used their magic at the same time.
The Gigante Dragon was hit by an explosion.
Once the Gigante-Dragon is hit with it, it will undoubtedly fall to the ground.
Then the melee fighters would then attack it in mass, as planned.
The Gigante-Dragon soars through the air.
Then it dives toward the ground while spitting out its breath.
The adventurers were thrown into a panic by this completely unexpected move.
Because they can’t make a good defensive line, they are brutally burned into cider.
“Hey, don’t be frightened! Keep the formation!”
While saying so, some of them are probably no longer alive.
But they can’t just stand there or they’ll be hit by the dragon’s line of breath.
“Hey, where’s Ninya?!”
Suddenly, a girl approached Garga and spoke to him.
Her name is Nell.
She was raised in the same orphanage as Ninya.
She has dark blue hair and dark eyes.
Unlike Ninya, she has a wide range of abilities.
“The All-powerful Nell”
In contrast to “Ninya the Incompetent.”
“Now is not the time to worry about that; it’s the demon in front of you! Nell! You’re the bait, so get the Gigante Dragon’s attention!”
“Huh?! What are you talking about?!
Nell would try to get the Gigante-Dragon’s attention while the other adventurers attacked.
This should have been part of the plan all along.
In fact, Nell’s ability allows her to survive even if she becomes a decoy.
“Because I don’t feel Ninya’s [buff] today.”
“Huh? What exactly do you mean?”
“So I can’t fight without Ninya’s [buff].”
“What exactly do you mean?! Ninya’s weakening skill is ineffective. I expelled that incompetent from the clan!”
“What are you talking about? Ninya’s [buff] is so strong that she could [buff] all of the clansmen for 24 hours! It was, to put it mildly, a monster.”
Garga had no idea what Nell was saying.
Buffing the entire clan for 24 hours?
There was no way she was capable of such a thing.
“The only reason things aren’t going as planned is that Ninya isn’t here.”
Nell says it in a whisper.
It’s true that she fought the Gigante-Dragon many times before, but Ninya was always there.
“I’m going home—if Ninya’s not here, we can’t win anyway.”
Ignoring Garga’s warning, Nell was heading for the transport station.
(We can’t win without Ninya?)
“Restore the defensive formation immediately!”
Garga took up his greatsword as he gave these orders.
” Pesado-Dive! “
Garga uses his skill.
As he leaps into the air, the soles of his shoes heave.
Then he jumps over the head of the Gigante-Dragon and points the tip of his sword straight down.
He then uses another skill.
The sword’s penetrating power is increased, and it lands with great force.
This will deal some damage to the Gigante-Dragon.
Meanwhile, we should be able to reestablish the formation.
The great sword, however, came to a halt with a clang.
Only a small portion of the sword’s tip has pierced the scales of the Gigante-Dragon, and it has lost momentum.
Had Garga made the same attack before, he would have done enough damage to cause a spurt of blood.
The Gigante-Dragon feels something on its back and flies against the wall, as if to scratch it.
Garga leaps to the ground in time to save his life.
The Gigante-Dragon’s breath hits the adventurers once more.
Garga assesses the situation.
The formation has already disintegrated. It had nothing to do with strategy anymore.
Without a clear view, the adventurers engage the Gigante-Dragon.
They clearly can’t win anymore.
Garga had no choice but to make that decision.
There were initially 99 clan members.
However, only 64 of them survived.
