Everyone Else is a Returnee – Chapter 52: A Partner Only for Me – 5

Only half of Yu IlHan’s work had finished. He didn’t even go through mana crafting on the extermination spike spear, didn’t make a harpoon set for hunting large scale monsters, and didn’t refine the troll’s blood he piled up in the Cross Bag using a special container!

[This villain! Workaholic! Middle-aged head of household! Baldie!](Lita)
[Lita, I don’t think he’s listening to you anymore.](Erta)

Leaving aside Lita, who had so many things she wanted to do with Yu IlHan upon returning, Yu IlHan continued working.

No, in fact, it was also because Yu IlHan came up with the conclusion to finish working first before thinking about what to do, since he didn’t know what to say to her, now that they met again so suddenly. Really, at this point, he could be considered an exceptional workaholic.

“That’s why I said I’ll do what you want.”

He immediately went into mana crafting. The most important thing was to draw out all of the power from the magic stone, fill them all in the spike spear, and make it blossom in the direction Yu IlHan wants.

Currently, the variable was that there was an unidentifiable will dwelling in the magic stone, but perhaps fortunately, Yu IlHan also possessed a similar fighting style to the past Reta Kar’iha.
The characteristics of the magic stone and Yu IlHan’s characteristics matched, and even the characteristics of their weapons matched, so there was no need to doubt the results of the mana crafting.

[Can’t IlHan not use mana? But why is he so proficient in mana crafting?](Lita)
[Since there was the Heaven’s quest.](Erta)

Even while the two angels were whispering to each other while looking at Yu IlHan working, the mana crafting process itself was progressing smoothly.
the magic stone’s aura which sparked everywhere like an adolescent, was a little annoying, but the near level 30 skill showed its might. It gathered all the sparked aura and concentrated it on the spear!

‘Like how you want, bring out all the abilities of the deathgod!’

The spike spear started emitting brilliant light. The ever-so-violent black aura dwelled in the spike spear perfectly, and emitted violent mana as if it had found what it should do.
All Yu IlHan needed to do was to help it dwell in the spear properly, and help the spear to digest its power completely.

The results came out soon. The black aura, which realized that Yu IlHan was helping him, proactively spread its power throughout the spear and blossomed it according to Yu IlHan’s lead.

To bring out all the power of the records that Reta Kar’iha possessed.
To make Yu IlHan, who now walked on a similar path as her, to shine brighter by accepting the traces of her!

The light soon disappeared. Yu IlHan stared holes at the spear until the change was completely finished, and only after all the process was done did he grab it.

[Dark Deathgod’s Dragon-exterminating Spike Spear was completed.]
[Dark Deathgod’s Dragon-exterminating Spike Spear]
[Rank – Legend]
[Attack Power – 4,000]
[User Restrictions – the ones who possess the power of deathgod]
[Options –

  1. Attack power, critical hit rate, and critical damage increases by 30% in a surprise attack
  2. All effectiveness of deathgod’s skills increase by 30%
  3. Critical hit rate and damage increases by 150% when fighting against dragonkin.

[Durability – 3,200/3,200]
[A spear reborn after a strong resentment and an undirected will of vengeance was sharply refined by a master smith. The blade of vengeance will forever wait for the moment it severs a dragon’s head.]


Yu IlHan doubted his two eyes.

[Did you say dragon?]
“No, this option wasn’t here originally.”

As he was so dumbfounded, Yu IlHan couldn’t even speak properly. Although he was pleasantly surprised with the newly attached alpha option when mana crafted, the critical hit damage option which would be the finisher, had changed into a strange, other option, which made him dumbfounded.

What? He had no memories at all of anything related to dragons after meeting with Reta Kar’iha, but why did a suspicious option of ‘dragon-exterminating’ or whatever suspicious option on a completed artifact!

[This… I think you pulled out the records a bit too much.](Lita)
[Dragon-exterminating, you say… It seems Reta Kar’iha’s world got done in by dragons.]

Lita and Erta, who checked the spear’s information by grabbing it, quickly came to a conclusion. As Yu IlHan’s head also worked fast, he could realize what they were saying quickly.

“You mean it became like this since the mana crafting was too successful?”
[Yeah, you should have held back a little.](Lita)
[Even so, dragonkin… It’s unknown how far into the future you’ll confront them.]

That was natural, weren’t they the race which ruined an entire world? No matter how much Yu IlHan’s power had exceeded his league, in the end, he was a 2nd class without the ability to use mana. To fight against dragons on equal footing, he would have to acquire his 3rd class at the very least.

Since the monstrous value of critical hit rate of 70% had changed like this, the shock Yu IlHan received was unspeakable.

[Don’t be too dejected. Dragonkins are in every world. There will come a time you would have to confront them, and this weapon will become a big strength to you!](Erta)
[But dragonkin are at least 3rd class, right? Shouldn’t he run away the first thing he sees them?](Lita)
“No, Lita, Erta. You girls are not on point.”

Hearing Yu IlHan’s words, Lita and Erta both made a question mark. To the two foolish angels, who did not realize anything at all, Yu IlHan declared while uselessly posing himself.

“The fact that I acquired a weapon to confront dragonkin right now, is foreshadowing that I will have to confront them soon! The reason I despaired was because I, who is still weak, will have to fight against dragonkin soon!”
[Eh, now that you say it!?](Erta)
[There’s no way that’s true.](Lita)

Erta’s and Lita’s reactions were completely opposite, but Yu IlHan didn’t mind. It was because he was busy thinking what to do from now.

“First, should I attach dragon-specific options onto the harpoon set? But how do I even attach them!?”
[Calm down, Yu IlHan. The right options will come out somehow if you have the will!]
[Wha, why are you going along with Yu IlHan’s foolish jokes!?]

The one who prepares for the situation, the one who understands the situation, and the one who was not able to interpret the situation was in the same place.

Yu IlHan pulled out all the ribs of the highland troll boss and made a set of 24 harpoons. Whatever Yu IlHan was thinking, his work had some kind of charm which grabbed attention, and both Erta and Lita would be mesmerized by those scenes at those moments.

Next, with the 2nd class magic stones, which almost ran out because of making the spike spear, he started mana crafting on the harpoon set.

The leather rope that was made by the troll boss’ skin had good durability to the point that even if Reta Kar’iha appeared again, she would not be able to cut it. As such, he didn’t see the need to make it tougher. So, the thing Yu IlHan focused on was how long the pillar would hold out when nailed into the ground, and how effectively the harpoon will bind the enemies when it pierces them.

“And dragonkin at that too!”
[I said you don’t need to worry too much?](Lita)
[Yu IlHan, I will transfer the image of a dragonkin into your brain directly. Think up of their image properly, and imagine that the harpoons you throw will bind them effectively!]

Becoming an angel’s partner helped him out in situations like these. Although it was only to the point of being able to replay the dragon’s image in his head, Yu IlHan, who confronted countless life forms in learning dismantling, could quickly point out their characteristics successfully.
What was left was to make the harpoons to kill them properly!

[LIke I said, I’m not quite accepting the situation!](Lita)

Regardless of whether Lita accepted it or not, Yu IlHan and Erta’s cooperative work progressed smoothly. When the situation became like that Lita also thought ‘Did IlHan have the power to foresee?’ and watched them. In fact, it was because she hated to be teased by Erta and Yu IlHan if she got angry with them for nothing.

[Tenacious Dragonhunter’s Harpoon Set]
[Rank – Unique]
[Attack Power – 2,800]
[Options – 40% increase in maintainability of the harpoon and the pillars. 30% increase in effectiveness when confronting dragonkin]
[Durability – 3,500/3,500]
[A set of harpoons optimized for binding dragons. If this is in the hands of a proper dragonhunter, it will bring out enormous power.]

Despite not having met any dragons whatsoever, the power of the harpoons that Yu IlHan made were absurd. If someone else saw it, that person would misrecognize it as a master-weapon made by a blacksmith who fought with dragonkin at the front lines.
Even though Yu IlHan had mana crafted with the image that Erta sent him, too!

      Cloud i love your guess, lol. I kind of wish for that to happen now instead of what I imagined. What I think might happen is he uses it as a sauce. He might also start marinating meat inside of it.

      Another thing I could kind of imagine is maybe using the trolls blood as poison. I know the blood and meat is toxic to humans, but I am not sure how much that applies to the animals themselves. The story did say Animals usually don’t turn on each other unless there are no humans, but they definitely have eaten each other at points. So there is potential it is not toxic to them like it is to humans. Still would make a pretty powerful weapon against humans. Though I have no clue why Yu Illhan would use it on them.

    TIME TO GRIND THE ANGELS, SUPPORT SKILL. How do we do it? KIll… Time? Kill… Monsters? Kill… Your Dreams Of Using Mana. Then get comforted by a pair of small fairy-kin, I mean angels. Well, it’s only been 10 thousand years. Wait, that was a genie, you’re still young!

  2. decoysheep

    I gotta say, I’m digging the misadventures of baka couple and tsukomi angel. I’m looking forward to lita discovering just how obsurd the events that seem to follow ilhan and erta actually are. Also bloodrink…I see it as either being purified into a healing product. Or used as poison. Either or for medicinal purposes. Grats Chambers you actually made me make a WordPress account to comment and give you props.

    1. Wong Chuekyue Gordon

      In this chapter, erta said “Don’t be too dejected. Dragonkins are in every world” so this is information that all the other returnee would have. Before he was denied information about the specific of the dungeon since it would upset the balance of the world. The angle acts like GMs and works to make things fair to the people(players) and giving out common information isn’t against the rules. Erta gave no information about how the dragon acts or fights since in this chapter she said ” I will transfer the image of a dragonkin into your brain directly.”

    2. Jonathan Hurd

      A big thing to remember in these recent chapters is Yu Illhan’s relationship with heaven has changed greatly since last time. He is no longer someone to be guided and helped, but now a partner with heaven. Giving him more information than a person they are just guarding seems perfectly natural since Yu Illhan is their champion helping him is helping themselves.

      The other thing is that it isn’t really the angels informing Yu Illhan that Dragons are coming. Its Yu Illhan and his terrible luck that is informing him that shit will happen since it always does. Erta is just giving him an image to work with. That seems to barely qualify as overreaching help in my book.

      Nope, I considered that, but the original word literally means ‘wiping out/exterminating all the dragons’. Dragonslayer is just for one dragon (well, at least in my head)

      1. Seregosa

        Well, either one or many, depends on what the person in question is doing. Dragonslaying might be a good option to exchange that word with since it means something is going to happen or is happening, dragonslayer is a bit more restricted in this situation since it means something has already happened or is happening… But people who hunt dragons are also called “Dragonslayers” or “Dragon-hunters” depending on what word you prefer…

        Well, dragonslayer feels more like an occupation/class, dragonslaying feels like the purpose of an item instead of an occupation 😛 If the word is supposed to mean that it’s something inteded for use to destroy an entire race, dragon annihilating or dragon exterminating is probably more suitable compared to slaying that just means someone is killing them, not necessarily trying to root them out >.<

    “At that moment, sparks erupted between Lita and Erta. This was the moment where two angels met as rivals with Yu IlHan in between. Although, the direction they were going in, was slightly weird.”

    Slightly!? 😒

  4. TsukiNoHono

    Sleep potion,berserk potion *imagines a dude with high blood pressure forcefully woke up*,blood regeneration potion*imagines a high regenerative ability in a dragon shoved with this potion* there would be gore~!,and lastly Lita-tan is full dere dere huh after she came back fuhihihi~!

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      Considering Illhan I am honestly putting my money in for secret sauce. He already spiced it so and considering his bag has anti rot now. He also has a vacuum packer. So put meat and bloodrink together in bag and seal. Then roast in fire or boil with meat. Whala you have troll blood seasoned steak!

  5. libraryrocker

    I soon as I saw the name of the spear, I was like “f*ck he’s gonna have to fight a dragon!!!” Very funny that him and Erta are equally aware XD XD XD Lita still don’t know. XD XD XD

    Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!!

    Hey Chamber a question about the new Spear Yu Illhan just finished. When it says it “All effectiveness of deathgod’s skills increase by 30%” does that mean only the skills and effects he got from becoming a Death God or that since he is a Death God it increases all of his skills effects including his spearmanship and such.

    Also is it just me or did Yu Illhan at the end of this chapter manage to cockblock himself from having a three some with two angels…

  7. B055Y

    If it’s not a health potion, it could be like a strength potion. It “boils” his blood and gives him more strength for a limited time.
    But I’m probably wrong

  8. konstantinudachliviy

    If you ask about a plot holes, then, even though I’m not complaining, but there are definitely few of them. This holes related to another worlds, so they do not make big difference to the main plot. First of all – adaptation time. If MC with ten time burst need 1 year for it, then how people from Earth, while in other worlds, lvled-up above 2-nd advancement? With such calculations they are would need all of their time there just to adapt, how would they practice their magic and kill mass of monsters? And even become famous like Empress. Second thing – why so little amount of otherworlders reached second advancement in their life? From that we can see so far – you don’t need any talent and ability to level up, just kill monsters with party and you will become stronger and stronger. Within 30 years this would be very simple, if you consider that on Earth some humans reach this stage within few months.
