Defense Specialization and Reaction
641 Name: Nameless large shield user
642 Name: Nameless spear user
I can tell what you want to say already.
643 Name: Nameless archer
It’s increasing, after all.
The shields around Maple.. or rather, hands.
644 Name: Nameless magician
She’s gonna increase her defense again…
645 Name: Nameless large shield user
I have come to state my opinions since I had a mock battle with Maple but… I guess everyone already knows the change, huh?
Well, I will still say my part.
646 Name: Nameless large sword user
As long as it doesn’t become a hindrance to Maple, alright?
647 Name: Nameless large shield user
Well, first of all, as you’ve seen, the hands
It seems that is also reflecting the number of shields or skills
She has gotten more like an iron wall but it’s a calculation error in numerical values
More importantly, what’s dangerous is that the number of obstacles before reaching Maple has increased
And it also seems she can move them
648 Name: Nameless archer
That’s sounds like death to an archer
As I thought, she can control the large shields
This is gonna make me go crazy
649 Name: Nameless large shield user
Her ‘guard’ abilities aren’t that high yet since Maple isn’t used to controlling shields but… that’s also a matter of time
650 Name: Nameless spear user
It’s hilarious how the top of large shield users can’t use large shields
651 Name: Nameless large shield user
Well, moving on
Maple suddenly sat on the throne
It’s a very pretty chalk throne!
Really cute too
652 Name: Nameless magician
So she has finally become the king in both name and substance, huh?
653 Name: Nameless archer
There will be people following her lead
654 Name: Nameless large shield user
A white field deploys around her when she’s sitting on the throne
And the throne has some sort of sealing effect
A few of my skills also got sealed
I think it seals dangerous skills but…
It seems like it also affects Maple herself?
I am not sure
Also, auto health regeneration comes with it
655 Name: Nameless large sword user
That last bit is a little too much for a small addition, don’t ya think?
She will basically always win if she has an ally sitting next to it
656 Name: Nameless magician
Wouldn’t sealing dangerous skill seal almost all of Maple’s skill?
657 Name: Nameless spear user
It even seals her skills too, eh
Isn’t that the most risky for herself?
658 Name: Nameless archer
In other words, she gentle when she’s sitting, eh?
And when the king stands… yikes
659 Name: Nameless large sword user
The more allies she has around her, the stronger her protection abilities with the large shield will be
If all her guild members are beside her, the throne will literally be complete
660 Name: Nameless spear user
Her guards are already too strong
And if they are in Maple’s protection…
One would have no other choice but to assassinate from stealth
661 Name: Nameless large shield user
I don’t really understand how resistance types work but can someone defeat them before their defenses are strengthened?
662 Name: Nameless large sword user
Expect that of a raid boss or something
It’s impossible for your general player
Also impossible for a high level player
And a pro player won’t go close since they would be able to sense the danger
Then we have no other choice but to call a boss who can charge in knowing the risks!
663 Name: Nameless magician
Well, if that boss beats Maple after going head to head with her, who will then defeat that boss?
664 Name: Nameless large shield user
That’s pretty much it about her changes
I will go teach Maple how to use a large shield so
665 Name: Nameless large sword user
There he goes to make it even harder!
666 Name: Nameless spear user
We can’t do anything that way!
667 Name: Nameless large sword user
After this, the topic became “what kind of a country can be built with Maple as the lord?” but that’s another story.
