(003) It is finally time for a job change
I hunted 2 rabbits. Although, with my 400 times quicker growth compared to regular people, I had the same growth as if a regular person hunted 800 rabbits. According to Daijiro’s book, the people of this world change job to Commoner immediately after birth, so does that mean nobody is aware of this trick?
This is a good discovery.
What does it mean to have the Commoner stats add on to the Jobless stats?
At the very least, apart from having abnormal growth due to the blessings, I am able to obtain double the amount of status compared to others.
My current second job is Commoner.
According to Daijiro’s book, Commoners can only memorize plain skills, but upon leveling up, the number of jobs you can change into increases.
For the time being, I stored the killed rabbits in my item bag.
If that’s the case, I wish to defeat another rabbit and quickly change my first job into another job.
As you might expect, having Jobless as my first job is too hard on me mentally. If I obtain a new job, I’ll have the 2nd job replace my Jobless slot.
Because I wanted to at least have a job in the otherworld. Commoner gives me a feeling like a Freeter so it doesn’t make me feel like it is my first job. (TL: Freeter = People who survive solely by working part-time)
Even so, the first step would be to follow this animal trail northwards.
Because the book made it sound dangerous if wolves appear.
The 2 rabbits would not be able to cover tonight’s lodgings, but I believe I have enough to spare to stay in an inn with the money I received from Daijiro-san.
As I thought about that, this time, I saw a black rabbit!
Lucky~, let me hunt you.
The black rabbit was a lot more nimble compared to the previous rabbits and it toyed around with me.
If the initial rabbits were slimes, then this black rabbit would be a she-slime? (TL: In dragon quest, the She-slimes are larger than regular slimes and stronger… I think)
I felt that it was an evolved species of the regular white rabbits.
If this goes on, it would escape!
The instant I had that thought, the black rabbit stumbled on a root stump. Just like in the nursery rhyme.
I’ll go slash at it with the sharp rock. As I made that decision, the black rabbit resolved itself and attacked me with a body blow.
It was fairly quick, but I was able to dodge it. It was a kind of movement that was impossible for the previous me. Ah, I was able to dodge it because my speed went up.
Thanks to that difference, the sharp rock I was holding on to grazed the black rabbit’s neck, becoming a mortal wound.
【Ichinojo Level up】
【Commoner skill: 「Stone Throw」 obtained】
【Job: Farmer is now available】
【Job: Hunter is now available】
【Job: Lumberjack is now available】
Alright, it’s here!
|Jobless Lv27 (7↑)
|Commoner Lv8 (7↑)
|30/30 (10+20) (8↑)
|21/21 (8+13) (8↑)
|27 (9+18) (7↑)
|23 (7+16) (7↑)
|10 (4+6) (4↑)
|9 (3+6) (4↑)
|16 (4+12) (6↑)
|「Job Modification」 「2nd Job setting」「Stone Throw」
|【Possible Job Changes】
|20x experience point acquisition
|1/20 required experience points
Ooh, status and jobs both increased at one go.
Commoner only became Lv8, but Jobless also increased by 7 levels.
It looks like the growth of Commoner is slower compared to Jobless.
I predict that the rarer a job, the slower it’s growth will be.
However, simply relying on the fact that my second job is harder to level does not deny the other possibilities.
Also, as I’ve heard, the Commoner skills are plain after all. 「Stone Throw」 … I can do that even without the skill. Although I think the skill will apply a correction bonus.
If I remember correctly, according to Daijiro’s book, the Apprentice Swordsman job should be available once I reach Lv10 on Commoner. I’ll try to aim for that first.
Before that, I’ll modify my first job to Hunter!
I recited first job 「Job Modification」 in my mind. Is this how I do it?
【You would not be able to return to the Jobless job after deleting Jobless from your first job, is that alright?】
Eh? Wait a minute!
If I remove Jobless, I won’t be able to return to Jobless?
Is that so, so after getting a job, I won’t be able to become Jobless as long as I don’t lose my job? That’s common sense. However, since I would not be able to lose my job in this game-like job system, I would not be able to return to the Jobless job.
It’s not like there is a phrase to change job to Jobless.
I predict that the Jobless job still have many unknown possibilities hidden inside.
A third job, or even a hidden fourth job … there might even be a release of restriction in number of jobs.
It would absolutely be better to remain like this for now.
I understood this but.
… In the end, I still can’t get employment.
I couldn’t stop myself from getting depressed.
It’s a little quicker than planned, but here’s the update.
Of course, as seen in the title, Jobless was not deleted.
Next time, we will finally arrive at a town.
