I’m sorry, but I need to do something for about half an hour, so I’m going to cut off my stream.
After escaping from the labyrinth, I said that with some apology, but to fulfill my task, I needed to cut the stream.
『Can’t be helped.』
『Ok. I’m going to get some food.』
『I’m going to the bathroom.』
“I’ll be back soon, so please look forward to the next time.”
After watching the video jewel disappear, I operated the menu card to connect to the voice call function.
This recently added voice call feature is like a phone call. It’s required for both sides to be a friend and be online before they can use the voice chat.
It’s a quicker way to communicate than messaging, so it’s more convenient if you’re both logged in.
On the other hand, if you want to send a message late at night, a message is better. In short, they have a different use.
『I’ve been waiting for you. I was expecting you to call me ASAP…』
“I’m grateful that you understand it that quickly.”
Haruru is quickly picking up my call with just one ring. I guess she’s been accustomed to it since I’ve depended on her a lot lately.
She basically doesn’t want her name to be mentioned in the stream. Considering Haruru’s personality, I think she wants to fit into the role of [mysterious blacksmith] position.
It’s kind of too late, though? since I showed her face in the stream when we first met.
Anyway, there’s a reason why I contacted her. I wanted to know if Haruru could use that item I got from the monster floor.
“I’m going to ask you straight to the point. Can Haruru use the Gravity Jewel?”
『Yes, rather, I’d be more than happy to use it.』
I was secretly relieved when Haruru replied in the affirmative as a matter of course.
I don’t know what the gravity attribute is, but it’s quite valuable as a high rarity item. And the higher the rarity, the more difficult it is to process.
In a way, her immediate answer when I ask about this Gravity Jewel has given me a sense of reliability because I don’t even understand what kind of item this is.
Now, if Haruru can use the Gravity Jewel, what I want to ask her is simple.
“I want a weapon. The best one Haruru can make.”
『Ufufufu, as I thought it would turn out like this… your [Kagenui]-chan is a wonderful child, but I imagine that she’s been too ‘light’ for current Sukuna, huh?』
『That much is obvious…』
I can’t help but smile when Haruru guesses exactly what I’m thinking with a playful laugh.
I’ve only been using this weapon for about a week, but it’s the most comfortable weapon I’ve ever owned.
I’ve slaughtered more monsters than I can count. The result of this is also the reason why the Kikoku no Mai in the earlier battle for so long.
That’s why I want to strengthen her(Kagenui) in order to go even higher.
『Oh yeah, first, I need to thank Sukuna-chan』
“Thank you for?”
『[Meteor Impact -Zero Type-]-chan… you have shown me a fitting end for that child』
“Ah, I see… you were watching?”
That was just a few minutes ago.
The final art of the blunt weapon skill, Meteor Impact.
It is no exaggeration to say that Haruru created the Meteor Impact Zero type just for the purpose of releasing it, and it shattered exactly as it was intended.
『Again, thank you. I believe that child was happy.』
Her tone was different from her usual deliberate, prolonged voice. It’s a very clear and gentle voice.
I lost my word in front of her emotional gratitude because that was unexpected.
As if to bring me back to reality, Haruru began to speak again in her usual voice.
『Fufu, I’d like to thank you for the opportunity as well… Sukuna, I am ready to take on your request… I will make the best weapon, ever.”』
“Yeah, I’m counting on it!”
『Basically, we’ll use Kagenui as the base. And we will do without regard to the cost… and that’s why I need a favor from you.』
『Crimson Jewel… you have it, don’t you…? I’d like to use it for refining…』
Crimson Jewel, a flame-based crystalline substance given to me by a named called Nemeas, who was residing in the permanent scorched land.
The Gravity Jewel is a derivative of this. Both are attribute jewels, different from dragon crystal or spirit crystal.
I think it had the effect of adding a flame attribute to the armor, but it was something that was difficult to use due to the current lack of attribute metals that can be used on the armor itself.
I honestly forgot that I had it until she mentions it.
“But why? Are you making a weapon with fire attribute?”
『No, I’m not… but the forging I’ll be doing will require unparalleled high heat… In order to make the furnace hotter and stronger, I desperately need the flame attribute rare crystals.』
I see, in short, she needs something to melt an item with an extremely high melting point
She didn’t specifically say what to use, and I only suggested Gravity Jewel as the material I’d like her to use, but Haruru will probably use Overheavy Metal as a material again.
But If that’s the case, then the same temperature as before is supposed to be fine… Well, okay. If Haruru wants to use it, I’ll give it to her.
I already trust Haruru’s skill as a blacksmith.
She may pursue romance, or she may specialize in practicality. But that doesn’t matter. All I know that the weapons Haruru makes are very comfortable in my hands.
“If you need it, go ahead and use it. and If you need anything else, let me know, and I’ll get you what I can.”
“fufu… I expected no less from Sukuna… Then, there is an item called a combustion stone among the event exchange items… If possible, please prepare about 30 of them.”
“Oka–ay. But is 30 enough? I’m sure I could prepare about 300 of it.”
『It’s a Crimson Jewel support item… you could say it’s an insurance policy for it… Oh, and one last thing… If you still have it, could you give me a named material?』
I opened the menu, wondering if I still had some leftover, as Haruru continued with her request as if she had remembered.
The red wolf costume is basically made of cloth, so when I asked Konekomaru to make it, he used mostly hair and leather for the production. After that, he gave back the fang, claws, and other materials, didn’t he?
“ah…I don’t have that much, but I’m going to leave everything I have for now.”
『That’s very kind of you… Thank you very much.』
There were still a few materials left that could be used for weapons, though only a few from the initial amount.
Judging from Haruru’s reaction, I guess she didn’t need a lot, to begin with. I felt that it would be better to give it to her since I had no use for it, just like the Crimson Jewel.
『I’ll make a contract for you, so if you could send me the items after… that would be great. ……』
“Okay. I’ll see you later.”
『Good luck with your final push, Sukuna-san…』
“Yeah, I look forward to the final results.”
After saying that, I hung up the call.
I think this will allow me to get my weapon in time for the final day.
No, Haruru, make sure that she will.
It’s okay since I don’t need to repair my armor, but I’ll want to prepare more recovery items. I’m sure I’ll be able to find a lot of them in the market.
I don’t know if the <<Defeat the Apostle>> will be a pure 30-player first-come-first-serve raid battle, or if it will be a series of parallel raid battles that you have to whittle down, or if it will be a winner-take-all system where every time a raid party is destroyed, the next party takes on the challenge.
Regardless of the method, the only ones who are for certain to participate are me and Rin, who is a full attacker.
If we don’t have a healer at the start of the battle, we’ll have to rely on items for recovery.
Considering that possibility, it’s better to prepare as much as I can.
“I guess I will need to level up later.”
To be honest, I’ve already reached a level where I’m having a hard time gaining experience in the event dungeons.
Still, the fight with Gold earlier raised my level, and… Umm, I forgot all about it!
I haven’t checked the results of the fight with Gold at all!
I was about to operate the menu card when I was suddenly having this thought.
No, I should have done this with my viewer later.
It’s lonely to be happy and sad alone in front of the boss battle results.
I still had about 20 minutes left before resuming the stream, and I spent it examining the items I would send to Haruru.
As far as Haruru is concerned, Sukuna is a good customer because she uses a blunt weapon and lets her use rare items easily. She uses Sukuna’s stream as her background music while forging so that she doesn’t miss any signs of rare items.
Imagine your crafter stream sniping YOU for material…
And yeah sorry for the long absence, I feel like I owe some apology to you all… but this time the situation is bad, I want to talk more about this, but let’s cut it short for now.
Currently I’m proof reading 5 chapter ahead. Please be patient.
I will tell my story after finished this homework lol.
