[Please design the item.]
A blank blueprint appeared in front of me. I was baffled.
Design? How do I do that?
I then knew what I should have done. Rather than visualize modern weapons such tanks and jet fighters, I needed to design a sword. Wasnt it just a matter of the shape? I thought hard and started drawing on the blueprint with my finger. A correction effect seemed to be applied, as the picture perfectly displayed my thoughts.
I have to make it cool.
First, the length of the blade was 2m and the width was 80cm. The thickness was 8cm. The length of the handle was set at 40cm.
"...This is the appearance of a greatsword that can be seen anywhere."
The finished picture showed the limits of my impoverished imagination. I pondered for a moment before thinking of a good idea. I changed the shape of the blade to something curved like a scimitar and then extended the length of the blade to 3m.
"Is this okay?"
I liked the finished picture. It was like I was looking at a large scimitar with a short handle. At the same time, it had the heavy weight of a greatsword.
It is reminiscent of a sharks profile. The part of the blade is like a shark fin, and the end of the handle is a shark tail.
I admired the finished work for a while.
I have made something sophisticated and cool!
It gave the impression of a swimming shark. If I held it, some people might have the mistaken impression that I was carrying a shark and be shocked.
I didnt know I would be so good at designing. Once I make money and pay back the debt, I should change my major to design.
I felt great satisfaction as I clicked on the OK button at the bottom of the blueprint.
[Have you decided? When you complete the blueprint, the number of available creations from the creation skill will decrease by one.]
Once I replied, numbers and languages quickly covered the blueprint. Figures were being calculated. It seemed that the system was calculating the details that I lacked in my design. After a while, an improved and completed design appeared. A bunch of Jargon and complicated numbers covered the blueprint.
I could fully understand the jargon and numbers on the blueprint. I looked at the design contents and checked if there were any faults. It was amazing. I understood that contents of an item design that I had never even seen or studied.
The class compensation effect!
It was really great; I felt like an actual great blacksmith. As I was admiring it, a notification window popped up.
[Please describe the characteristics of the item.]
"Thats right! Finally, the most important part is left!"
I was excited.
"This is an outstanding weapon. The attack power is one million... no, it is more than 10 million and the weight is only one. There is no level requirement. There is an option to absorb health with every attack. Can cause meteors to fall. The enemy will unconditionally die from one hit. Of course, defense is ignored. Anyway, this weapon is enough to hunt a dragon alone."
[That isnt possible. The performance and options of an item cant be arbitrarily set. The performance and options are determined by taking into account the materials used, the design, and the description of the features.]
I tried to make the explanation as good as possible.
"It is a greatsword, but thanks to its unusual shape, its cutting power is tremendous. The protruding part that resembles a sharks fin will allow for unexpected attacks, and can even go through armor. Blue orichalcum is used as the material, so it is light and durable. And... and... um... well, that will be enough."
Truly a legendary blacksmith! It was literally the goose that laid the golden egg.
Then that feeling sank as I read the stats and options of the completed Failure. I checked the usage conditions attached at the end.
"It needs level 300?"
Two days ago, I heard that the level of the first ranked person on the unified rankings was estimated to be around 250.
That wasnt the only problem.
10 stat points were gained with every level. Even if a person invested all of their points into strength for every level up, it would be almost impossible to have 5,000 strength at level 300, even with titles and equipment that raised their stats.
There are classes that receive extra strength, but it isnt common. In the first place, who would be idiotic enough to invest all of their points in strength?
Finally, there was the Advanced Sword Mastery level 8. Currently, the first ranked blacksmith had intermediate level skills. I couldnt predict how long it would take for people to get Advanced Sword Master level 8.
Even if I managed to make Failure, nobody would be able to use it in the near future. This meant that selling it was impossible. My dream of making a fortune was shattered in an instant. As the name suggested, Failure was a failure.
"...Then thats it. There is no springtime in my life. Shit."
I was frustrated but quickly corrected my mindset. Then I tried to deduce why such exorbitant usage conditions were attached to the item I created. It wasnt difficult to come to a conclusion.
It was a mistake to try and make it unconditionally good.
The development team of Satisfy had caught the hearts of the world, so they wouldnt be that easy. Failure wasnt an item that could be acquired randomly through hunting or a raid. It was a production item that could be produced indefinitely if there were enough materials. It was likely that the system placed restrictions on the game items in order to maintain the game balance. Those restrictions were in the usage conditions.
An acceptable performance. Isnt this the most important thing about the creative skills?
The creation skill had a limited number of uses. It had to be used with care. I decided to seal the creation skill. If I created and sold superior items that didnt destroy the balance, I would be able to earn a lot of money quickly and pay off my debt. However, I didnt want to rush it.
I wanted to see it as the ultimate weapon to use for myself before encountering a difficult quest or a strong enemy.
The creation skill is for me. If I am in a crisis situation, I can create an item that can break through the situation.
As a simple example, if I encountered a boss monster capable of causing tremendous fire damage, I could create and build an item that greatly increased my fire resistance properties before the raid.
If I didnt create items for sale, I didnt have to worry about the usage conditions. One of the biggest advantages of Pagmas Descendant was that there was no restriction on the items I could wear. If I created items with a fraudulent power like Failure, I could show the highest power among existing items, even if the penalty was attached.
After I cleared my mind, I checked how to make Failure. The materials were also a problem. In order to produce Failure, I needed a huge supply 15 blue orichalcum ore.
Even the handle is made with blue orichalcum... It was a mistake to choose only blue orichalcum as the material. If I used other materials as well, the number of blue orichalcum ore required would be reduced.
I saw Failures tremendous options, so I was filled with the desire to produce and use it right away. If I could get my hands on Failure, I would be able to demonstrate a fearful combat power. But it was impossible to obtain blue orichalcum.
Lets get rid of this vain regret. No, wait. Can I participate in the Guardian of the Forest raid party? The person recruiting party members said that level was irrelevant.
I remembered the Guardian of the Forest raid party and headed back to the center of the square. Then I walked up to the black man with the ID Toban.
"I would like to participate in the raid."
