Teruru dungeon, second floor.
I came here with Vanadium, Alice, and Eve.
I have a good grasp of the dungeon and structure that I have been going to for a long time.
It was the deepest dead end on the floor, there were no monsters, and I came to a place where no one would normally come.
On the way, I caught a Drowsy Slime with a Restraint bullet and caught it.
“Then Alice, I’ll leave it to you.” (Ryouta)
“Yeah, you can count on me.” (Alice)
She puts the Drowsy slime all the way towards the dead end and leaves.
“Boney-chan, Slimey-san.” (Alice)
Alice calls their names and points to the slime.
Immediately after, two monsters popped out of her shoulder.
The two cute bodies went to the Drowsy Slime and beat them.
In a blink of an eye, the Drowsy slime was knocked down and a decent carrot was dropped.
With the carrots on the spot, Boney-chan and Slimey-san came back.
I stared at the carrot.
From the carrot to my distance, it seems to decrease to 99%, 98%, 97% …….
After some time it became 0% and the Drowsy slime hatched from the carrot.
“Yeah! Both of you come out again!” (Alice)
At the command of Alice, Boney-chan and Slimey-san came out and attack the slime again.
There was no restraint bullet this time, but it was still easily beaten.
Then, the carrot dropped again.
“Pick it up and come back” (Ryouta)
Alice asked them to come back with the carrots.
Alice received it and showed it to me.
“How does it look” (Alice)
It won’t go any further.” (Ryouta)
“I see~ Eve-chan, what’s the taste like” (Alice)
Alice gives the carrot to Eve who was waiting for some time.
Eve grabbed and screamed, “It’s mine!” but we weren’t’ even gonna take it to begin with.
“A little delicious” (Eve)
“I see.” (Ryouta)
“Well, at least we know about something.” (Alice)
Alice shrugged her shoulders a little while smiling.
There is a reason why I came here to test the drop item reincarnation and asked Alice and Eve for help.
Alice has a special ability obtained from being born in a dungeon, and unlike the actual status, you can see the “timing of drop”, so the quality is reasonable, but the drop rate is almost always 100%.
100% is easy to test, and it is easy to see if the quality has improved moderately.
So I asked Eve, a carrot sommelier, who never compromised on carrots to see if the quality improved.
If this was me, I don’t think I can tell the difference.
I remember the New Year specials I watched every year until I came here.
There is one thing I’ve been thinking about after seeing that.
You can clearly see the difference between 498 yen and 5000 yen wine, but I think there is not much difference between 50,000 yen and 100,000 yen.
In that sense, I asked Alice who has a 100% droprate.
“Let’s test some more.” (Ryouta)
We catch another Drowsy slime and lock it in a dead end.
Defeat, hatch, defeat————rinse and repeat.
That made it clear.
In the same way that the aged meat of quintuplets that I saw in the city is 50%, the maximum value of the degree of rogue monster (tentatively named because it is a number that only I can see) decreases by 10% every time a carrot reincarnates once.
At the fourth reincarnation, Alice screamed when she saw the Drowsy slime that had hatched.
“What happened” (Ryouta)
“It’s no good, I can’t catch the moment when it drops.” (Alice)
“… Did the slot rotation exceed its limit” (Ryouta)
I had been thinking about it since I first heard about it.
Alice’s ability is like pushing a slot machine.
Alice’s ability is barely 4 times, so it’s no wonder that the frequency of 5-turn aged meat is “about once a year”.
It may be as low a probability as an ordinary adventurer would meet a spirit.
“It’s okay, I expected it.
I’ll take over the rest.” (Ryouta)
“It’s good.” (Ryouta)
“Oh by the way, they’re getting stronger little by little.” (Alice)
“Is that so.” (Ryouta)
I pull out my revolver and shoot the slime with a normal bullet.
I see, it’s noticeable when you fight them.
Their reaction when pointing at them is a little faster than the normal Drowsy slime.
Still, after all, it was a Drowsy slime, and I immediately corrected it and shot it through.
The carrot dropped; the 5th rotation.
“Oh, as expected of Ryouta.” (Alice)
“I will continue” (Ryouta)
After declaring, I reincarnate carrots repeatedly.
5 times, 6 times, 7 times, 8 times, 9 times.
With Drop S, so to speak, everything was a hit when spinning the slot machine, so I made nine-turn raw carrots without difficulty.
The degree of rogue monster was 10% as expected, and since I defeated it at a long distance, it started to decrease immediately, so I hurriedly approached and picked it up.
“10% again … what if I try it one more time” (Ryouta)
“Let’s try” (Alice)
We nodded, returned the carrots to their original place, and waited for it to become a rogue monster.
The 9th reincarnated carrot with 10% rogue monster degree, immediately hatched.
I shot it and it dropped—–at that moment.
After seeing the carrot for a moment, it immediately hatched and turned into a Drowsy Slime.
“Is it at 0%” (Ryouta)
“It’s 0%” (Alice)
Alice and I saw it nodded.
This is also one of the expected patterns.
That’s why Alice and I nodded at the same time.
Eve made a slightly sad face.
What I saw for a moment was a phantom 10th reincarnated carrot.
I hold the revolver again and take out the pouch.
This pouch has the ability to suck items into this pouch the moment it is dropped.
I used it and shot through the Drowsy slime.
After the slime was knocked down and the carrot was seen for a moment, the pouch swelled.
There was a carrot.
When I took it out.
“How is it” (Alice)
“0% ——Ah wait, it’s at a 1%” (Ryouta)
The carrots that went through the 11th run, which was 0% at the moment of taking out, was 0% at first but became 1% when holding it.
However, it does not increase beyond 1%.
“It’s staying at 1.” (Ryouta)
“That’s the limit.” (Alice)
“Low level, carrot for bunny.” (Eve)
“Right, here you go.” (Ryouta)
I present the carrot.
I made sure that Eve received it before letting go so as not to create a period of not touching it even for a moment.
Eve bites the carrot immediately.
“Wow! What’s wrong with Eve-chan, she’s crying so much with a straight face.” (Alice)
“… Low level” (Eve)
“Bunny became low level’s child” (Eve)
“Is it that delicious” (Ryouta)
“You can do whatever you want with bunny, so give more carrots” (Eve)
“It’s really that delicious.” (Alice)
“It looks like it.” (Ryouta)
Well, this is about to be expected.
Approximate specifications of rogue monster degree.
While thinking that this could be used for something, I refill the normal bullets that I just shot.
“What is it” (Alice)
“No, this bullet isn’t that great, but only some are at 90%.” (Ryouta)
“Heh … ah, Ryouta did return the bullet to a slime and make it another bullet.” (Alice)
“Ah, there is that.” (Ryouta)
I’ve certainly done that before.
In the very early days.
Since then, there is no need for it, so I haven’t done it at all, but it’s probably a remnant of that time.
Well, what if I did that now
“Will this bullet improve” (Ryouta)
“You can tell by shooting” (Alice)
“That’s true” (Ryouta)
I held both the revolver and loaded both with normal bullets.
One is a normal bullet with 100% rogue monster degree, and the other is a 90% normal bullet.
I shoot the two at the same time toward the wall.
“Oh, ones a little bit stronger.” (Ryouta)
“It’s really subtle” (Alice)
“This is … not enough to bother.
It’s a consumable item, and considering the time and effort.” (Ryouta)
“Oh, but…” (Alice)
Alice remembered something and asked me.
Alice’s proposal was very attractive.
At night salon, in front of everyone.
Celeste used two bicorn horns at the same time to shoot a ball of fire.
One launched the usual flame ball—— the other flame ball launched a little later and was so big that it swallowed the first flame ball.
The gallery were subtly impressed with the cute Celeste mumurring, “Oh”.
“Wow, that’s amazing.
Ryouta-san, this is amazing!” (Celeste)
Celeste was surprised at the bicorn horn I gave her after the 9th reincarnation.
Consumable bullets are meaningless considering the time and effort, but the bicorn horn is different.
Using Alice’s suggestion to make a 9th reincarnation――No.
The Bicorn Horn 9 and the name that came to mind made Celeste even stronger.
