Chapter 027: Full of cheat equipments (In Luciel’s eyes.)

Translator: Tseirp

The next day after the mini uproar in the Adventurer’s Guild, under tremendous cheers from the large scale expedition ceremony, the Valkyrie Paladin Corps began their journey.

I was surprised by the enthusiasm shown on the faces of everyone from the Valkyrie Paladin Corps, but within the cheers I heard things like “Looks like it is Zombie-sama”, “Looks like it is Masochist-sama”, and “Looks like it is Deviant Saint-sama”. Everyone stared at me from horseback with bold smiles as they left on the journey from the Holy City Schull.


“Even though I went to such lengths to tell them to stop using those nicknames. Oh well there’s nothing I can do.”

After sending them out of the Holy City, I went to the labyrinth after multiple meals.


Katria-san was already at the counter reading a book.

“Ah, Luciel-kun, good morning. You are late today.”

“Yeah. I went to send everyone from the Valkyrie Paladin Corps off as I had been in their care lately.”

“Ah~. So you’ll be going into the labyrinth from today? Will you be returning at around the same time as usual?”

“No, I intend to dive in for a little longer. Because it seems like I am not that well regarded by the people around here.”

“I can’t allow you to do something so dangerous.”

“Even though you say that but I only return to go back to my room to sleep anyway, my meals are also packed within this magic bag so you don’t need to worry?”

“That is not the problem.”

“I’ll be fine. In the boss rooms once I defeated all the monsters as long as I don’t open the door monsters can’t come in.”

“You will die if you get complacent.”

“Yeah. I have somehow earned some resentment due to me getting on friendly terms with the Valkyrie Paladin Corps so I wanted to disappear into the Labyrinth.”

“Ha~. If that’s the case then please return here once every week. The items you blackmailed from the Pope would have arrived here by that time as well.”


“Don’t die okay.”

“Yeah. My motto is to not die and survive. I’m off then.”

“Take care and be careful.”

“Yes. I’m off.”


Like that I stepped into the labyrinth.

After chanting 「Aura Coat」, I ran through the first floor and destroyed the monsters.

After defeating them, I collected the magic stones into my magic bag by stepping on them and descended down the stairs.

I looked at the map and memorized the paths before steadily advancing and defeating monsters. By the time I reached the 10th floor boss room my stomach clock rang.


“Somehow I feel like I have amazing stamina.”

I purified the boss room and spread out the bento. After finishing my meal, I drank that stored inside my magic bag, rested for a while and then advanced in a similar method until the 20th floor.”

“Sei, Teiaaaaaa, Eh!? Shit!” 【By the hand of holy healing, return the unclean existence to its original path. Purification】

Using a shortened chant, the MP consumption was larger than usual but I successfully defeated the Specter Knight.


“Fu~. My stomach feels empty so it should be around dinner time. Somehow, to have warm meals within the labyrinth keeps the heart at ease.”

I made a well balanced meal (or intended to) from the food bought from various places.

Following that, I drank Object X and fought with Specter Knight-sensei multiple times, purified the boss room with purification magic, applied Aura Coat and slept with a barrel of Object X placed nearby. (TL: Lol he is using the barrel of Object X like it is insect repellent)


“That’s a ceiling that I don’t recognize. Wait it’s the labyrinth. I don’t know how but I slept like a dead log in such a place, not to mention on such a hard floor.”

While murmuring that, I confirmed that the surroundings did not have any monsters and hence didn’t feel bad.


“Maybe because I applied purification magic to the place. Okay. After eating my breakfast and doing some combat I’ll go investigate the 21st floor.”

In that manner I ate my meal and only fought with Specter Knight-sensei once before starting my exploration.


“Even though it’s already frightening enough with the ghouls, to think that there are even mummies.”

I could still defeat them with just one strike from purification magic. As I lamented the lack of combat potential, I desperately investigated the floor that had expanded in size on an empty stomach before finally finishing my map on a slightly raised area.

“It’s about time I return.”

I returned using the shortest distance, right before the stairs I took out Object X and verified its effectiveness on the monsters chasing after me.

” … Truly just what is Object X.”

The undead monsters maintained a certain distance and totally did not approach me.


After returning the ultra-versatile cheat item Object X into my magic bag, I ignored the approaching monsters as I returned to the boss room, fought with Specter Knight-sensei and had dinner, before I practiced magic and trained with Specter Knight-sensei.

Apart from getting hit in the vitals or getting amputated, I had confidence that I could heal over the illusion.

“Even though it is an illusion, if my limb gets severed it seems like there would be after effects.”

But this is a little strange for an illusion? No, because it is configured exactly like a game that’s why there’s no mistaking it, it’s an illusion.

With that, deep in thought, the 2nd day of exploration ended.


The next day I reached the 22th floor. And the day after that the 23rd floor. Even though I was terrified of my opponents, the exploration somehow proceeded steadily and so 1 week in this world passed thus I returned for the first time.


Upon exiting the labyrinth, Katria-san was already waiting for me at the shop.

“I’m back. Please purchase my magic stones.”

“Thank god you are alright. Also, it’s great that you returned after 5 days. New weapons, armour and also many valuable magic tools of yours were entrusted to me.”

“It was 5 days? Maybe my stomach clock went a bit haywire. Well it’s fine since the timing was just right.”


After that, my magic stones were converted into P and she gave an explanation for the equipments I’ve received.

Mithril Sword: A common looking sword that is easy to channel magic into and if Holy attribute magic is channelled into it, it will display tremendous power against the undead.

Mithril Spear: Easy to channel magic into and if Holy attribute magic is channelled into it, it will display tremendous power against the undead.

Antiheretical Shield: A shield with Light sealed within, hated by those with Undead (Immortality) attribute. Possess high resistance against Darkness attribute.

Paladin’s Armour: An armour blessed with divine protection given to all paladins when they are appointed. A cheat armour that possess high resistance against Darkness attribute, blocks off miasma, reduces gravitational pull (TL: literally reduces/alleviates gravity not item weight), regulates temperature and has self-maintenance function.

Sage’s Gauntlets: Required MP reduced to 2/3 of original costs, magic power increased to 1.2 times.

Boots of the Earth: Different from what’s expected from its name, it is light and if magic is channelled into it, it will become even tougher than steel. It is a first-class items to the extent that if Fighters see it they will be green with envy.

Angel’s Pillow: It is told that if you sleep on this pillow you will experience sound sleep and your fatigue will be gone by the next day. Also, it pulses with Light which monsters hate.


” … Apart from the weapons the others all have outrageous capabilities. Nevertheless, why were so many items assembled?”

“Because of the expectations on you. Well truthfully there are no healers that can equip these equipments. Looks like they were stored for the event when somebody like Luciel-kun who can capture the labyrinth appears.”

“Even so, can’t items like the Antiheretical Shield and Sage’s Gauntlets also be given to paladins and priest knights?”

“That is because there are conditions to equipping them.”


“Yes. Don’t fret the minor details and try putting them on.”


Thus I acquired cheat equipments.


“Ara, it looks good on you. Besides, I’m glad that it looks like you can equip them.”

“Truthfully, what are the conditions?”

“Erm. Apparently, to have defeated more than 1000 undead monsters, to have either Light or Holy attribute, and to have reached a certain amount of skill level.”

“Heh~ I see (What a convenient opportunity thrown my way)”

“Then what do you intend to do after this?”

“I’ll enter again. Before that I wish to purchase some daggers for throwing purposes.”

“Mou. Don’t push yourself.”

“Yes. Of course. In addition purifying the main room mysteriously makes the place settle down.”

“That’s not a great discovery. In the past many people’s physical conditions broke down because of the smell so be careful.”

“Yes. If I start feeling bad I’ll return.”

“Well then please return within a week.”

“Understood. Also regarding the equipment, if you by any chance meet with the Pope could you please convey my thanks?”

“Yeah. Okay.”

“Well then I’m off.”

“Yes. Take care.”


Thus dressed in cheat equipment, I ran towards the 10th floor boss room while defeating monsters and stayed over at the 10th floor boss room inn. The next day I once again ran towards the 20th floor.

The fact that within the items received the one I was the most happy about was the Angel’s Pillow was my personal secret.




(TL: In my opinion, and foreshadowed by the chapter title, I think what Luciel got were unwanted equipment or reject equipment that were sugar-coated by Katria hahaha … how they compare to other equipment we’ll have to wait and see.)

    I think those "reject" items are one of those that have inhuman requirement or bad pro/con ratio. In short, only cheat human like him will think it were cheat item

  6. Thanks for the chapter! 🙂

  7. Thanks for the chapter!
    "went to the labyrinth after multiple meals." You can revise it it sounds really awkward bec a use he implied he save it for later not eat it instantly, and dont stick in

  8. "My motto is to not die and survive."
    That's an amazing quote you know? everyone should follow his example.

    ->[Angel's Pillow]….. he should discuss this with kehma.

  9. Hahaha, using a boss room as a frikin inn.

  10. Thanks for the chapter!!

  11. Thanks for the chapter!!

  12. accountmadeforants

    Yeah, they're like those items you only get after getting 100% completion in New Game+, or something.

    Sure, they're powerful, but how are you even gonna use them by the time you get them? (E.g. the Chaos Ring in Castlevania:

    Moreover, it's supposed to be ridiculously hard to use magic while engaging in physical combat, so that probably makes them useless to most people, as well.

  13. dat 10th floor boss room inn

  14. Thanks for the double release 😀

  15. 10th floor boss room "inn" lmao xD ….

    I see by the titles that at the very least he will level up before chapter 42 😀 … I can't wait 😛

    I also feel that they just gave him scraps based on the future titles 🙁 … damn pope… I don't like her at all… she just steals his items that are much better than the item bag that he got… I mean one of the items he got NEGATES MAGIC!!! and then to make it worse, she gives him scraps… everything comes around, she will regret it one day 🙂

    Thank you so much for another great chapter… I love this novel more and more by the chapter >_<

  16. Now the question is… how is he going to react when he finally realizes that it's not an illusion…

    My guess is he'll react like the dense MC out of a Harem Anime who finally realizes all the girls around him love him.

  17. I want to have those pillow…

    Thanks for the chappy :*

  18. ru5ty

    and he still think the dungeon is illusion…..
    thx for the chap

  19. even though he still thinks that the labyrinth is an illusion… what would be his and the others' reaction when he destroys the core thus removing the labyrinth beneath the HQ

  20. Thanks for the chapter!!

  21. thanks for the chapters 😀

  22. Does that actually happen?

  23. Just the gauntlets will make things a lot easier, with the armor while he be able to leap tall buildings now that gravity is reduced.

  24. Just the gauntlets will make things a lot easier, with the armor while he be able to leap tall buildings now that gravity is reduced.

  25. The pillow really is the best item.

    And I think the items are broken in both meanings. They are useless to most people but also really strong. He is one of the exceptions who ignores the bad bit, making them perfect.

  26. Why does he keep insisting that the dungeon is an illusion?! If no one else thinks it's an illusion and people have died in there and you can get injured then it ISN'T an illusion! I don't get how he can be that stupid

  27. Its because he thinks it is like a game so the people dying part to him is just a predetermined plot or background setting. Its just like the back story for a quest, it never happened and its to set the mood for the labyrinth capture

  28. I think he thinks it's an illusion because:

    (A) no matter how many enemies he kills he doesn't level up.

    (B) It is way easier then he thinks 'reality' should be

    (C) Despite it being so 'easy' other people such as the pope 'claim' that the place is really difficult

    (D) The un-dead reappear everyday and they drop items

  29. ∵ゞ(´ε`●) ブ Thanks for the chapters!!! Liking this more and more

  30. This comment has been removed by the author.

  31. Damn, I remember getting Chaos ring… I was so hyped because I can infinitely spam souls, then ended up using Satan's ring anyway against Chaos instead. I abused it in New Game+ though.

  32. Anonymous

    I'm disgusted by this church, full of money hungry scammers.
    ANY of the item he found from floor 10 and 20 boss is better than all his "cheat" equipments.

  33. Thanks for the chapter Tseirp!

  34. …Shouldnt it be obvious that object x is a mix of various poisons that was somehow made drinkable?

  35. alexorario

    Lol he is using the barrel of Object X like it is insect repellent

    ^sometimes the comments of the mr. translator are even funnier than the novel itself haha

    Great job so far, thank you for the hard work!

  36. AnimeLoverSAO1

    So what made the equipment unwanted was the conditions?

  37. Amazing story so far 😀 I’m so glad I binge-read up until this chapter~
    Hope to see the future progress (with no harem please D: and lot’s of action :3) Thank you Tlers for your awesome commentating and hard work~ And for the author as well, although he/she probably won’t know about the praise he/she’s getting from leechers like me…. Keep up the good work…?

  38. Regarding the equipment he got, it’s inferior to the first boss room equip. For example, this one has mana consumption decreased by 1/3rd but the boss drop he got was 1/2.

    In my opinion, it’s not like he got trash equips. They are all pretty good (but probably not “cheat” level) except for the weapons which are just normal mithril. IIRC, he started off with a mithril sword which means this is not an upgrade. But it seems like silly Luciel has been labyrinth-ing with no armor, right? This is a step up for him.

    Hmm, in a game scenario the most valuable equip item would be the weapon. In Luciel’s case, a staff that he can use to make his holy magic stronger would be best. Plus, he can also use it as a blunt weapon.

    The real cheat he has is the special drink, IMO.

    Thanks for translating this.

  39. Come on, you didn’t even bring a sleeping bag ? You could fit a whole bed in your backpack.

  40. Hiraite Neko

    Katria says he blackmailed the pope into those items but arent they the ones who keep snatching his precious loots..
    Its not like those are pope’s belonging but expensive items brought by moneygrubbers. What’s more, MC thinks it’s natural that they take his loot ..why MC? Lol.
    Btw I dont understand the P… On his debit card-like item were he exchange is magic stones to P… I wonder what the value of P is, like how many Ps is 1 silver.. and he can only use the card inside healer guild church…?
