Chapter 45.2 : Restart And New Equipment
It’s made from precious and rare metal called Orichalcum. Orichalcum is the name of a lightweight metal with blue luster on it and despite being lightweight, it’s more durable than iron.
It’s value can’t be compared to that of iron, and normally isn’t the kind of metal that an adventurer of Aria’s rank could get their hands on.
But, Aria hit a big jackpot just a while ago. There’s the remunition from Beryl’s subjugation but……. The biggest income is from purchasing the trolls corpse that was defeated by Tama.
The meat, bone and skin of trolls are sold at a high price. And since the one who beat most of those trolls was Tama, naturally the knight that was accompanying them gave the remunition for the purchasingof the trolls raw materials to Aria, Tama’s master.
Thus, Aria’s used her new funds to order new sets of equipment for her and Tama from Vulcan, a warrior smith and her partner.
The color of bikini armor that was made with orichalcum alloy is a phantasmal silvery blue, it’s the best combination along with Aria’s beauty, porcelain white skin, and platinum blonde hair.
If one has to say, her current appearance is just like……….. The legendary War Maiden《Valkyrie》 Moreover, it won’t become a hindrance for Aria’s inherent skill, 《Acceleration》.
And different from her previous equipment, she now has gauntlets and leggings to increase her defensive power. [TL : ……………. Did the author just forget about her flanks?]
Her bikini armor came as a set with the leggings, gauntlets and shoulder pads which were also made with Orichalcum.
Aria formerly only wore high boots and gloves in order not to hinder her movements but, since there’s no worries about weight of her orichalcum equipment, she can add more for her defense.
Moreover, the things that were updated isn’t just Aria’s armor. Her weapon was upgraded too.
「This color………. No way, this is also made using orichalcum? 」
「Spot onya~. Moreover, this isn’t just made purely from Orichalcum! I mixed in 〝Tamahagane〟 along with orichalcum. And depending on your skill, you might even be able to cut metal with it nya~! 」
Such was Vulcan’s recommendation when she presented the pair of knives to Aria.
The color of the knives is silvery blue. But the silver color is more imminent than her armor. And according to Vulcan, she also mixed in a type of metal called Tamahagane.
Though Tamahagane is the kind of metal that is often used for blade type equipment, it’s still the most suited one for Aria weapon. And in fact, as long as the weapon of a first class sword user is made from Tamahagane, they can cut metal like a tofu.
Moreover, orichalcum is added in the material of this knife too. So it’s an extremely sharp due to the Tamahagane and tougher than iron due to orichalcum, so there’s no need for her to worry about something like nicking her blade due to overuse―― Was what Vulcan explained to Aria.
And now it’s Tama’s equipment. He’s already changed from wearing the leather armor and helmet from before to the newly made silvery blue armor and helmet.
Though his old adventurer style armor and helmet is also lovely, the new set of equipment that’s made as if he’s cosplaying a knight won’t lose in terms of loveliness.
And since Aria herself calls Tama her knight, the cuteness of this knightly figure of Tama has simply shot through the roof.
Tama himself is extremely satisfied with this new set of equipment. And going by it’s color, it’s easy to guess that Tama new set of equipment is made from the same material as Aria’s, orichalcum.
And thanks to orichalcum weight reduction effect working on the other metals, it feels lighter than the same kind of equipment made without orichalcum.
Just the fact that it’s made with orichalcum alone has raised the defensive power of this equipment dozens times compared to the previous one. And it’s going to be even more powerful with the combination of 《Iron Body》 and his new skill, 《Divine Protection of the Lion King》.
Those are the golden combination for him to act as the shield of Aria, his master. Tama who obtained new equipment and power. The current him can even withstand the attack of a dragon from the front.
「Well, shall we do a field test then! 」
「Yes!. It’s pleasure to work with you again, Vulcan-san! 」
Vulcan, Aria, and Tama. One cat and two girls were having such exchange as they head to the labyrinth.
As expected, upon arriving in the labyrinth…….. The matter of his encounter with that enigmatic beauty in the labyrinth last time crossed in his mind, but he’ll soon realized that he was too naive………
