(285) Is it really back to how it was?

Translator: Tseirp


For some reason, I was unlocking criminal-type jobs one after the other.

It wasn’t going that well at that point but (although Pimp kind of paled in comparison to the others) the bigger problem started after that.


【Job: Commoner has been sealed】

【Job: Farmer has been sealed】

【Job: Hunter has been sealed】

【Job: Lumberjack has been sealed】

【Job: Apprentice Swordsman has been sealed】

【Job: Apprentice Magician has been sealed】

The endless list showed that the jobs I have been unlocking so far were being sealed.

What … what was happening?

I quickly took at look at my own job.

【Thief Lv1‧Mountain Bandit Lv1‧Pirate Lv1‧Death Warrior‧Lv1‧SlasherLv1】

And they had changed to those 5 jobs.

I tried to change Thief to Commoner.

But there was no response.

“No way ― Status Open!”

I checked my status.

All the jobs that could previously be changed to were all marked as sealed and greyed out.

“Haha! It’s our win.”

Said the ‘Monster’-user who was just treated.

“You were hit with our leader’s secret technique, the Curse of Darkness Fall! It was a trump card within all trump cards that would make him lose consciousness once used but the curse will make any target fall into criminal jobs. Lament your pitiful fate after putting so much worry just now about us falling into the thief job! And thinking that I am just an ordinary Monster-user is another reason for your loss! In order to return to be a Commoner, you will have to turn yourself in, become an Atonement-seeker and level it up so you are already done for.”

The ‘Monster’-user said as a snake jumped out from his chest.

I was bothered by how the ‘Monster’-user kindly taught me the way to return to be a Commoner but more importantly, I was more curious about where he kept that huge snake.

“That is a ferocious snake that is native only to the Eastern Continent! Not to mention you who changed into a Lv1 Thief, it can easily defeat small fries like Apprentice Swordsmen and Lumberjacks!”

He said but ― isn’t this a good chance?

First, I changed my first Job and verified my status.

This could work.

I split the snake that attacked me in two with my White Wolf Fang.

It was light.

“Ho … How?”

The ‘Monster’-user said in shock.

“Why? Well, it was a given.”

Death Warrior and Slasher were quick advanced jobs so they had reasonably high status even at Lv1. Mountain Bandit and Pirate were advanced jobs too.

In addition to adding up all their status, I still have my ability correction for skills so I could easily defeat a snake or two.

【Ichinojo leveled up】

【Mountain Bandit skill: 「Axe Equip」has skilled up to「Axe Equip II」】

【Mountain Bandit skill: 「Equipment Snatch」acquired】

【Pirate skill: 「Sense of Balance UP」acquired】

【Pirate skill: 「Bird’s voice」acquired】

【Death Warrior skill: 「Body Boost」has skilled up to「Body Boost II」】

【Death Warrior skill: 「Body Destruction」acquired】

【Slasher skill: 「Instant Kill」acquired】

【Job: Commoner has been released】

Just like the ‘Monster’-user said, Commoner was released once the Atonement-seeker job leveled up.

I tried changing my first job into Commoner.

【Job: Thief has been sealed】

【Job: Mountain Bandit has been sealed】

【Job: Pirate has been sealed】

【Job: Death Warrior has been sealed】

【Job: Slasher has been sealed】

【Job: Pimp has been sealed】

【Job: Chaos Wizard has been sealed】

【Atonement-seeker level has dropped by one】

【Job: Atonement-seeker has been sealed】

【Job: Farmer has been released】

【Job: Hunter has been released】

【Job: Lumberjack has been released】

【Job: Apprentice Swordsman has been released】

【Job: Apprentice Magician has been released】

The sealed jobs were returning to normal one after another.

Hah, so it was a breeze to switch back to normal from the criminal jobs … but in actual fact, normally it would probably not be possible to become an Atonement-seeker without going through a trial or some specific procedure. It’s for certain that the job can’t be changed into at any regular Church.

In that condition, gaining experience points from defeating monsters would be difficult.

And I verified the status of Atonement-seeker just now and all the status were even lower than that of Jobless, making it the weakest job. Not only will it be impossible to defeat monsters in that condition,

My level remained as high as before.

My second to fifth job had also returned to the jobs I set before they changed to criminal jobs.

In addition, the criminal jobs were excluded from the jobs I could change into.

So it’s back to normal, sheesh, it made me worry for a moment.

“After all, your Cursed Spearman’s skill didn’t activate. My job is the same as before.”

I said before hitting the ‘Monster’-user with my katana kept in its scabbard.

“Hey, brother, are you really okay?”

“Yeah, I’m okay. Everything is back to normal …”

No, wait, is it really back to normal?

I checked my job and realized that there was a difference.

I verified my first job once again.

It was Commoner. Naturally, I changed it to that after all.

In other words, my first job was no longer Jobless.

In the past, before I reached Florence, the status message said this.


【Once Jobless is removed from the first job, you can no longer return to Jobless, are you certain you wish to continue?】


In other words … in other words, I can no longer return to Jobless … ?

  1. .   ヘ⌒ヽフ Thanks!

  2. Alex

    Thanks for the chapter

  3. Adypoker

    wait, isn’t this just nerfing the MC??!?!?!?!?!?

  4. Adypoker

    Isn’t this just Nerfing the MC?!?

    • Hevensdragon

      Maybe not. Remember that even when you remove a class you keep the skills. Yes he can’t level jobless anymore but he kept the skills. He also was not really able to level it anymore even with his cheat. Now he did lose the stats of the class and it was very high leveled, but its base stats and stat gains were very bad. The power of the class came from his muilticlassing. This effectively gave him another slot to work with. And now he can place a higher stat class in its place. In a lot of ways he just got 25% stronger stat wise. Pluss he can level a additional one at a time. The only thing he lost was any future abilitys of the class, if there was anymore.

      That all said this is just wrong. His class is part of the stories name, its has shaped his actions and driven him to get a party, and it is a unknown that even the gods are looking into, one of the few things that could be called plot in the story. To lose after all this time to a random one off mob, is just wrong.

      • Ryhonn

        Just reread the description of his „Job Hunting“ skill (where he gets a rare/weird job for 24h). It says it replaces „Jobless“ and reverts to it afterwards. Now he can’t set „Jobless“ as his first job again but what if his first job turns into „Jobless“?

    • Schadows

      On the contrary.
      Jobless was almost impossible to level up since he broke past the level cap.
      Now, he gets all the unlocked skills so far, but can put 5 real jobs, for example, 5 fighter jobs or 5 magician jobs, instead of 4.

      • Jacek Sadkowski

        about of spoilers:
        when MC lost Jobless Job he cant use job hunting skill, its skill that only works if you are jobless, its not only example of skill directly tied to job, look at Carol’s temptress job, its skill that attracts monsters can be leveled up but once job is switched skill stops working, it only works if current job is tempress.

        Next story arc will actually be about MC regaining the jobless, among others because he needs it for job hunting, and he will regain it and it will even reach level 110 which will unlock new skill, sadly I am not sure what it does exactly, google translate is pretty unclear, it says something about summoning.

  6. Filip Dinca

    Oh damn, this is one nasty event. To think that a small fry would have such a power. Now, again, like many times before, cliff-kun is killing us.
    Thanks for the chapter! God bless you, take care, and have a great day!

  7. BV

    9 Volumes later, and we finally stopped being Jobless! Though, not sure if “Commoner” really counts as a job.

  8. Nyamsus

    Nah.. Being Jobless is linked to his very own existence, just Kadoya Tsukasa who is a passing by rider

  9. Inuzuka

    285 chapters in, he has finally gotten out of jobless!

  10. Yup yup

    Thanks for the chapter.
    Woah he can’t return to jobless. But I guess he can still keep his skills, too bad he lost all the potential skills he could have gotten later on.

  11. flat

    There’s no way that this is permanent, but if it is, I’ll be so mad. I don’t think the author is dumb enough to do that though

  12. Meatbun Delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    Bye bye jobless class.. we’ll miss you~

  13. Mango-D

    I 2nd this.
    Also thx for chap

  14. Bertorion

    Thanks for the chapter..
    Eh, for real..
    This truly important can’t we not leave it at this cliff

  15. Felipe

    Pity, so not only he can’t use the job seeker skill anymore but he also lost the chance to max criminal jobs without committing any crime

    • kaiiayrennevaeh

      Pretty sure he can keep using the skills obtained, so he should still be able to use the job seeker skill, same reason he still has five job slots.

      As for the criminal jobs, probably plot-kun will do something about that in the nexts chapters, besides, couldn’t he already do that with the job seeker skill?

      The problem is all the posible jobless’s skills that he might had yet to unlock, but again, plot-kun will probably do something about it.

      • Felipe

        Firs: he already reached the top of jobless on liv 100 he just kept being jobless because of the job seeker skill
        Second The job seeker skill description stated that it worked by replacing JOBLESS with one of five random jobs, since he isn’t jobless anymore he can’t use that skill anymore

    • Hevensdragon

      No he can. You have to equip a class to level it and learn skills. But once you learn the skill you have them always. You do lose the stats of a class when swaping out though.

  16. Cake

    What? Nooooooooooooooooooooooo

  17. Tanha


    That’s bad.

  18. Wtrmute


    Thanks for the chapter!

  19. SFcipher

    Oops, he can’t retain the jobless profession?? Are you serious??
    Thanks for the treat.

  20. ReEt

    Rip, cheat jobless class…
    Thx for the chap!

  21. DRAGO

    Doesn’t he retain all jobless skills however? So he should still have all the upsides of jobless without the downside of having to keep a useless (statwise) class as his primary?

  22. Pannath

    He can totally return to jobless. Since he never got that warning, it shouldn’t apply. All he has to do is use the power to get a temporary job, set that as his first job. When the temporary job wears off, he will be jobless again.

  23. pokeperson1000

    Thanks for the chapter

    I don’t like the direction the author has taken this story now. Can we kill the Cursed Spear user in revenge? Like, painfully?

    • spoonikle

      There is really only an upside to removing jobless. The new potetial skills are basically land mines – leveling it is super slow since its so beyond max – and its base stats are terrible.

      MC can use any skills learnt , the class isnt needed for anything but its stats bonuses and gaining more levels in that class.

      Since he can now change his first class without fear of missing out on those weird random deus ex machina skills of jobless in the future, he can add the stats of a more powerful class and level up more classes at once.

      He still is OP, and even more so because he is no longer crippling himself with the dead weight of jobless.

    • I wish he would. who knows how many people this duo has killed using this combo with no consequences. as for the jobless “nurf” it just plain sucks!

  24. Cipher

    Thanks for the chapter.

    So time to change the series’ title? 😛

  25. JayVlad Dark Heart

    Thank you for this chapter! 🙂

  26. Stranger

    Man if the mc is no longer jobless the title of the novel is no longer correct.

  27. ChunLing

    Jobless forever.

    It’ll be easier than learning how to use “Atonement Seeker”. By the way, he really is stupid if he couldn’t figure out the usage from the title.

  28. Seregosa

    I doubt the author will make him lose the jobless job so easily after so long. It’s way too random. It won’t take long before he becomes jobless again, after all the author seems to find it hilarious.
