Chapter 242 Strongest Sages, Goes Hunting
The monsters that were getting roasted in the flame attempted to flee but there was nowhere to run.
As such these monsters will all eventually drop dead, and the mana released from them shall accumulate in us as experience point.
"T-that's kinda amazing..."
"First time I've ever seen monsters getting slowly roasted to death..."
"This is made possible thanks to the narrow exit and exclusive magic."
Though in this case there was no door to close, I just tossed the magic into a closed room through a hole in the ceiling.
"Exclusive magic... With how powerful the magic is, it must be quite complicated right?"
"Actually, it's really simple... And besides, you can take your time constructing it, wouldn't be hard then... Though, might as well use the time to learn other magic than something like this, let me do all the work. You can help out if the door gets broken down and the monsters are getting out."
Just letting loose firepower in a wide range needs not complex magic.
On the contrary, compacting firepower in a localized spot, and unleashing it in a short amount of time would require more mana instead.
The most time intensive part of this magic is the Constant value of simply pouring the required amount of mana into the spell formation.
Ordinarily, you'd make the formation so that mana can be poured shortly, but this magic sacrifices even that in pursuit of more performance.
It's a true exclusive magic.
"Alright, looks like it's over."
The flame died down while we were talking about magic.
Looks like all the enemy there has been nicely eliminated.
I get down to the artificial Monster House that's full of monster bones and put usable looking materials in Storage magic.
I plan to sell them at the guild later.
If we don't sell a number of materials after hunting in a dungeon, some people may start suspecting us.
Better bring back enough materials that makes us look like [We've hunted some].
Besides, dungeon materials are a resource to develop the country.
Second Academy students should be capable of processing these materials from Floor 27.
"There's so many mats everywhere..."
"Yeah. There's also the Floor Boss, and this and that too can probably be used in some ways... Guess I'd just bring them all back."
My mana is going to get used up for the exclusive magic anyway, might as well make use of Storage magic to the fullest.
We'll think about how to use them later and get everything here.
We can use those that can be used and sell that cannot.
If selling through normal channels looks to be bothersome, we can just send them to Second Academy through the principal.
After I'm done collecting the materials, I turn to Ruli.
This part is the most important point of this leveling up.
"Ruli, try augmenting this magic stone with 『Magic Light』 magic circle."
I hand over a very tiny magic stone to Ruli.
"『Magic Light』? ...Sure, but what are you gonna use it for?"
Ruli augments the magic stone with 『Magic Light』 with a perplexed look on her face.
『Magic Light』 is the most basic of all augment magic.
Its only usage is lighting up the surroundings.
It's not particularly efficient nor of any particular use.
Since the augmenting is simple, Ruli was done in a flash.
"Alright, so far so good."
<TLN: If you're reading this novel at any other site than Sousetsuka .com you might be reading an unedited, uncorrected version of the novel.>
I turned on the magic light Ruli created.
"Um, yeah, I don't think I could fail at 『Magic Light』 though..."
"If your mana increased too much from exp farming, your magic control will start to go haywire. Easiest way to discern magic control's level is by looking at a completed magic tool. That's why I asked you to make one."
I observed the lines of magic circle carved in the magic stone while talking.
Yup. Nicely shaped lines that are neither too thick nor uneven.
"So that's how you measure the exp you gained..."
"Yeah. There are also other ways to directly find it out, but this one is quick and consumes little mana."
I took out a wooden stick from Storage magic while talking.
"Alma, shoot an arrow with 『Wired Homing Enchant』 at the tip of this stick."
As Alma shot the arrow, I swung the stick.
Alma's arrow flew in accordance to the stick's movement toward the tip.
...Alright. No problem with Alma either.
As for Iris, this much exp would barely have any difference to her, so there's no need to check her up.
I myself know the state of my own magic control, no worries there.
Looking at this, the first one to reaches their limit is most likely Alma.
Since Ruli is better at magic control than Alma, the amount of mana she can control is probably higher.
"No problem with you two. Let's do this again after annihilating another Monster House... The ground has holes on them, be careful not to fall in one."
I kneaded mana near a door nearby to construct the Monster House Annihilation Flame magic.
Then I opened the door, hurled the magic inside and closed it again.
The monsters' screams of agony resounded inside.
I was planning to enlist the girls' help if the door got broken down... But this door has been properly reinforced.
Looks like those guys understood the importance of the doors attached on Monster Houses despite their sloppy works on the ceilings.
The door is nicely reinforced with dungeon-use alloy.
No need to worry about it getting broken down then.
"Man, this is easy peasy."
In my previous life, I never had the need to go to community farming spots like this one since I could get the exp I required just by hunting normally.
I created this Monster House Annihilation Magic to destroy Monster Houses in other locations.
Guess community farming spots have their own specific allures to communities.
No one is gonna come to this spot in this era though.
