Chapter 042: Level up and new old men

Translator: Tseirp


“Damn, I won’t be able to fall asleep … or that would have happened if not for this excellent pillow-sama.”

Yesterday, I was feeling thrilled for the first time in a long time because I might have  a chance to level up today so I was afraid that I would not be able to catch some sleep.

Nevertheless the Angel’s Pillow is really a cheat item. It invited me to a pleasant sleep and before I knew it, it was morning.


“Well I say it’s morning but it is still quite dim outside.”

After finishing my daily routine of fundamental magic training, instead of going to the dining hall, I took out food from my magic bag and ate in my room.

Catherine-san told me that these were from the obachans from the dining hall, because they said that I might get into trouble with other church residents if I wait in line for my meal in the dining hall.

The church wiki, Catherine-san and Lumina-san, also nagged and warned me about other matters but it would make the meal unappetizing thinking about those so I shook my head and concentrated on the obachans’ cooking.


“All done. Shall I depart?”

I entered the labyrinth dressed in full gear.

“Huh? There are no zombies in the first floor?”

I tried searching around for a bit but there wasn’t any of those monsters that crawls towards you. I couldn’t find any so I had no choice but to proceed to the next floor.

As usual, the labyrinth was illuminated as I advanced without getting lost. At last in the 3rd floor, I discovered zombies and skeletons … and I chose to use purification magic.

“Ha~ It’s terrifying.”


When push comes to shove, I still felt the adrenaline pumping during combat, but the knowledge that this was not an illusion … didn’t shake my spirit and cause me to go into shock. Although, I still felt overwhelmingly strong feelings of fear towards the monsters and I thought back to the time when I was clearing the labyrinth.


“To think that I cleared this in the past … Aren’t I amazing? … No, not good. I’ve heard that one will get old quicker if they cling on to their past glory. The director also said that doing so will make you less hard working.”

As I advanced while thinking about my past life, I suddenly remembered about something important.

” … Ah, status.”

I silently recited status open in my mind and confirmed my status.


All my parameters certainly rose.

Name:LucielLV:2 (1)
Job:Healer IXHP:860 (20)
Holy Dragon Knight IMP:570 (20)
Age:18ST:600 (20)
STR:144 (2)INT:162 (4)
VIT:167 (4)MGI:186 (4)
DEX:141 (4)RMG:178 (4)
AGI:133 (4)SP:2 (2)


” … It is certain that they increased. HP, MP and SP each rose by 20, the remaining parameters all rose by 4 each. (TL: STR only rose by 2 but maybe the author calculated wrongly and intended to increase it by 4). SP increased to 2, if I remember correctly the God of Destiny’s blessing increases my SP acquisition but its only by +1? Rather than that, normally I would only get 1 SP from a single level up?”

I looked at the ceiling as I questioned the God of Destiny, but of course there wasn’t any reply so I decided to cherish the SP I have and save them up. Then, my rehabilitation to be able to fight with monsters using weapons began.


I used my shield to block the slow attack from the undead, as I channelled magical power into my Holy silver sword and slashed them. I was remarkably nervous for such a simple action.


“Broad-shisho, I had been acting conceit all this time. I was a real idiot to dual-wield when I did not have the foundation for it. Even if it’s like a lion hunting a rabbit, I will do my best. I will devote myself to not underestimate the opponent from now on.”

The monsters that appeared remained low in numbers until I finally reached the 10th floor boss room.

“Okay. I’ve reached level 5. Let’s go back.”

Even though it should only be around noon time since I entered the labyrinth, I was already exhausted from the immense tension on my mental spirit. I don’t think that I would be defeated even if I went into the boss room but I will work hard at my own pace. I’ve decided.


Furthermore, I intend to go through more rehabilitation before I enter the 10th floor boss room, or else I might end up panicking like I did when I first entered it.

Reflecting back to that time, I felt ashamed of my recklessness. Along my way back from the labyrinth, I defeated more monsters and my level rose to 6.


“The accumulated 10 SP can be used to increase my skill or status but what should I do?”

Currently the skills that I want are Detect Enemy, Detect Presence, Stealth, Conceal Magic, Conceal Presence/Magical Power, following that I would also like to get Great Luck-sensei’s brother Absolute Luck-dono, but I would not have enough SP to get that even if I reach level 45.

What awaited me as I exited the labyrinth while muttering, was Catherine-san with a resigned look in her eyes, and a small muscular daruma doll-san and a lanky fox beastman.


“Luciel-kun, it is fine for you to enter the labyrinth on your own but don’t you know you have the obligation to report your intention to do so?”

“Ah, sorry. I was too excited …”

That’s right. I was now obligated to inform anybody of my movements if I intend to go anywhere.

The reason given to me were that they might need to find me for the guideline and legislation or that the Pope may summon me.

“Well it doesn’t matter. Truthfully I should have introduced you to them much earlier but this is the dwarf Grand-san and the fox beastman Toretto-san.”

“Hoh. I’m Grand. All of the weapons in the Saint Schull Church are made by me. Anyway, that certainly isn’t the physique of a healer.”

“Fo~ That armour looks stylish as well. Ah, I’m Toretto. I’m the wholesaler for that church robe. Nevertheless that is a fine body. Doesn’t look it belongs to a healer fo~.”

A certain entertainer crossed my mind but I followed up with my own self introduction.


“Nice to meet you, I’m Luciel. I have been aided greatly by the items made by the 2 of you so I am grateful. … By the way, why have you been touching my body since a while ago?”

That’s right. They have been excessively touching every part of me without holding back. Catherine-san looked on with an amused expression and she signalled to me to not move with her eyes so I could only try asking.


“Of course it is because we need to tailor-make the weapons and armour to your skeleton and muscle build.”

“That’s right. It’s not like I want to stoke that cute butt of yours. Even this. is. for. serious. work~”

If you had not guessed from his words, Toretto-san is a man. Even though it’s over my robe but he’s been touching my inner thigh and butt. No, isn’t it just because he wants to touch me? He just wants to touch me right?”

” … Is that so.”

Catherine-san’s restrictive gaze strengthened so I resigned myself to fate.

For another 10 minutes or so I had to take different postures before I was finally released.


“Miss Catherine, this guy has meat in only some weird places but overall you’ve picked up a good one. It looks like he’s been training properly. He might even become the strongest among the healers.”

“Catherine-chan, so what should we use to make this kid’s equipment?”

“Something that the 2 of you had never used before. He is holding on to it but we have no idea if you 2 can use them.”

Catherine-san what are you doing? The 4 eyes that were on Catherine-san glared in my direction. If that’s the case I better quickly take out the materials. That’s what those eyes were telling me. You can really collect a large amount of information from a person’s eyes.

“Have the Pope given her permission?”

“Of course, I’ve received her permission.”

“Understood. It is this.”

From my magic bag, I passed the Holy Dragon scale to Toretto-san and the Holy Dragon fang Grand-san. Their face of anger changed repeatedly between that of disbelief, of expression of joy like a small child, and of sorrow.


“What’s the matter?”

“This is dragon right? To be honest, I’ve never tampered with this kind of material. I have the desire to do so. But I can’t afford to fail.”

“Me too. Even if I can’t fire myself up but I want to use it. But I am insecure about using such a rare material.”

Ah. I see. It is their first time seeing it. It is like in my case, when I’m choosing between fighting or running from a higher rank monster.

“Well even if you fail, I have plenty more of the same material.”


I took out more of the same fangs and scales. The 2 of them began trembling and shouted.

“”If that was the case then take them out earlier!!””

And so my chance meeting with the 2 of them ended.

“Let’s go? We should go immediately.” (Grand)

“Catherine-chan, we’ll be borrowing him.” (Toretto)

” …? Where to?” (Luciel)

“”Of course to our town!””

“Eh? Catherine-san?” (Luciel)

“Ah, it’s impossible without assigning escorts to him, and the journey to your city easily takes 10 days.” (Catherine)


So what should we do in this situation? However before I said anything, Catherine-san opened her mouth.

“We have already finished our negotiation with the blacksmith in the Holy City so you all can immediately begin using it.”

“Then let’s go.”

“Fofofo. It’s time to show my skills.”

Thus while under escort by Catherine-san, both my arms were firmly locked on both sides and I was worried that the suspicion that the Deviant Saint is gay would once again rekindle. However, everybody averted their eyes when they saw my eyes as I was forcibly whisked away, but I felt that they looked at me with pity so the rumour of me being gay was avoided.


(P.S. I guess the level up wasn’t what many of you all expected :p. My thoughts are that the status increase skill he has applies to outside of levelling up. Just like his skills his status might have progression bar as well as he trains physically, uses magic or received damage and his natural status increase is much easier to achieve due to Object X. In contrast, his level up increases his stats by 4 just like everyone else. So he starts from a level 1 with ~160 stats compared to a normal level 1 with 20 stats across the board.)

  1. so starting from now on he will level up normally but with advantage in base status ? damn that's op

  2. "HP, MP and SP each rose by 20" lol I wish his SP had actually increased by 20 but that is probably impossible xD

    It's hard to say but after seen Great-luck-Sensei's mighty power… Even though it would cost a lot of SP… Maybe, Oni-sama Absolute Luck-dono is worth grinding? xD
    Thank you so much for another great chapter 🙂

  4. hmmm i thought his stats would atleast go up by the same amount as his level in the "growth" skills. That'd make sense in my opinion

    thanks for the chapter

    Thank you Tseirp-sama for the chapter!

    You're right, that level up was pretty disappointing after all that buildup. Still, if that's how everyone else is slowly progressing, then I guess it shows how OP Luciel is in comparison XD

    • Anon

      Disappointing indeed….And while it’s a good thing the MC is not immediately turning into a mindless OP MC, it still feels like his growth is now stumped. It’s going to take a whole lot more time to make even a tiny bit of progression, and most of his progress thus far was by finding bullshit skill-books. One of them is literally godlike in ability.

      So while it’s a good thing…Just, meh.

  6. Dammit… I really thought his stats would shoot through the roof.

  7. remind me to moonlight sculptor

  8. Thanks~ ^^
    hah~ the stat increase for all that grinding(3,5Y) is kinda disappointing~ (even with [Rate of Growth VIII] + combat job it's only increase by 4? what happen if he lv-up without that? 1?) so bassically he have the base stat that the same as someone with lv30? i can only expect he grow to become Invincible from his title [One who unleashed the seal] that obtaining power from sealed dragons, not from normal lv-up~
    about SP… um yeah… he have a long way to grind for Skills acquisition (well… look like the lv can reach 3 digit, so he can grind to lv 250 to get [Heaven’s Luck] lol~), but i'm kinda currious what will happen to [great luck]-sensei if he get [Absolute Luck]-dono? convert back to sp? luck effect stack? …nothing?
    btw… " … It is certain that they increased. HP, MP and SP each rose by 20" SP? not ST?

    • shadowtrap

      i think
      [Rate of Growth VIII]
      is different than lvl up boost
      the skill boost the speed which he gain the stats not increase the amount of stats he gain during level up.
      think of it like this excluding his main exp bar.
      individual stats have it own exp bar and the skill reduce the exp cost for those bar.

  9. Hahah yea it's ST not SP 😡
    Well there are plenty of possibilities… either like you said others only get like 1 per level up … or others also get 4 per level but he gets to start with ~level 40 stats, it's worth it in a grinder's point of view haha coz his stats will always be 40 levels higher than a person with the same level as him … or a combination of both, he has lvl 40 stats and each level he +4 all stats while others only +1? We won't know until we are shown another person's stats

  10. But, you know, in some games, leveling by 1 level means ONLY +1 in one status. But Luciel increased ALL of them by 4.
    In that regard, it's still a cheat. Maybe.

  11. Author-san must like the oldman.
    There're many of them in the story~~~~
    Is he the same kind as Shiro(AKA kumoko-chan)

  12. Thanks for the chapter
    We have to remember that the healer job is the one that is the worst at leveling up. If he changes jobs later on he could get waaaay more OP I still want to know what will the other job he has will do for him and how he will increase his level in that.

  13. oooo~ now that you mention it~
    if all stat for normal person only increase 1 per lv up~ and their basic stat is 10 [luciel 20 from his title [The One Who Has Change Destiny (All Status +10)] in low lv maybe it's not really that different, but in lv hundreds he certainly will become some sort of Invincible with his basic stat that equal to lv30~40 + 4x growth~ if that's true~
    now i'm currious with the girls in Valkyrie Paladin Corps stat~ to compare it with luciel~ >.<

  14. Did it say at some point that 4 pts is the norm for locals? Are we sure that its not like 1-2 pts?

  15. It might be, but I think all those other skills he listed would be super useful too. Especially for someone with as large of a target on his back as our MC.

  16. so his stats would be around 300~400 at level 50.

  17. so his stats would be around 300~400 at level 50.

  19. Thanks for the chapter.

    Regarding the level up I think that the increased stats acquisition works.
    My guess is that normally for the level up from level 1 to 2 you might only gain like 10 HP/MP/ST and only 2 of the other stats. And SP could be that normal people only get 1-2 SP every 5 levels.

    Also the stat increase will become higher the higher your level is.
    Like for normal people:
    Only 10 HP/MP/ST + 2 all other stats up to level 50
    Then 20 HP/MP/ST + 3 all other stats from lv. 51 to 100
    And then 30 HP/MP/ST + 4 all other stats from lv. 101 to 150.

    Compared to that Luciel´s stat increase would be doubled.


    Another explanation could be that increase of 20 HP/MP/ST + 4 at other stats is normal BUT normal people don´t have an increase in all stats.
    Like people with warrior professions would mostly have an increase in HP, ST and physical related stats like STR and VIT but don´t get any increase in MP or magic related stats.
    And opposite to that magic related professions get an increase mostly limited to HP/MP and magic related stats like INT and MGI while they gain barely points to ST, STR or VIT.

    Then Luciel´s stats increased acquisition would be that ALL of his stats increase.

  20. Woo! Gay fox dude! Just go along with it Luciel!

  21. Thanks for the new chapter!

  22. The odd thing is, if you google for his status in later chapters, the +4 per level isn't a consistent thing. (Looks like his status has only come up 2 more times so far.) No idea if the author intended it that way or not.

    Here's the averages from those two times, keep in mind that certain events seem to boost his stats without necessarily leveling him up, as we've seen in this first dungeon.

    Averages between ch 42 (this chapter) status and next time status is seen (ch 77)
    2.22 Str and Vit/level
    2.10 Dex/level
    2.36 Agi/Level
    2.60 Int/Level
    2.76 Mgi and Rmg/level

    Averages per level between that time (ch 77) and latest status in raws (ch 169)
    5.32 Str
    5.97 Vit
    4.95 Dex
    5.01 Agi
    5.92 Int
    5.48 Mgi
    5.49 Rmg

    None of this means a whole lot though, since I'm not sure we ever see the numbers for anyone else. I think it's reasonable to assume that his stats will always be high for his level.

  23. Thank you for the translations, I forgot to say that in the above post. Also, you should probably replace all instances of "conceit" with either "conceited" or possibly to "with conceit".

  24. Thanks for the chapter… 🙂

    Thanks for the spoiler, shithead.

    Tseirp-sensei, thank you for the chapter. But what is a "church wiki", could you please enlighten me?

  27. Thank you for the new chapter! Dogeza! Orz

    Too bad his didn't increase explosively. Looks like he will need to grind some more.

  28. ? I guess you could call it a spoiler, but it tells you almost nothing besides that the author doesn't use the Status cliche too often, which is pretty typical of these stories as they go on.

    Not his levels or his stats, just the average gains per level between 3 arbitrary points which I did not specify. Good luck guessing if he's level 40 or 400 from what I've typed.

  29. Don't worry he got the Holy Dragon Knight Job (•́⌄•́๑)૭✧
    I wonder if having two jobs will affect Luciel which was discuss on early chapters (; ̄Д ̄)

  30. Thank you very much for chapter (★´ω`★)ゞ
    Being touch by others is uncomfortable…
    ヽ(๑╹ڡ╹๑)ノ But can't wait to his dragon equips huehuehue

  31. This comment has been removed by the author.

  32. Hahaha yea 😡 Maybe he would even level up his holy dragon knight occupation faster if he goes on using his physical attacks more for training as usual

  33. are u count effect from job too?

  34. Thanks for the chapter Tseirp!

  35. Anonymous

    those stat improvement skills might be % based. so he gets +80% for lvl VIII str growth. i find it weird that with his dragon knight class he only gets 2 str. i assume that he gets the best of both classes at lvl up and maybe a lvl-X healer gets +100% at lvl up vs a lvl-I healer. maybe if he had persevered with object X until he counter stopped on the stat boost skills he would get +5 to vitality/dex/int etc. ? maybe.

  36. gab

    stats is not 20 but 10 , luciel have a title for have 20

  37. Al

    So what level is the equipment he got from the dragon and his so called friends at the church are ahole s

  38. Ari-desu

    Well, how will we know if one day Luck-sama shoots his stats by lv up thru the roof? I have an immensely strong premonition right now.

  39. Finally he’ll raise his MP and HP pool significantly. It’s going fast-ish despite him having two jobs. Probably because it’s the very first few levels and mob aren’t low. But that spell trouble for the future ?

    wow, one step away from Healer X. Wonder what job this can evolve to.
