The Vulcan Bull Orc King is very though, the fight that continued until the day changed was both physically as well as mentally tiring.
This guy. It was able to endure the 3 folded surprise attack, is an indicator of impressive individual ability. It began to summon subordinates with a magic item a few minutes after the battle started. With that, a battle of endurance began.
It probably does this whenever its health falls below a certain amount, in order to regenerate in the meantime.
I wanted to kill it without giving him a moment to recover. However, the summoned subordinates didn’t move disorderly at all and approached as if they were one living entity.
It would be difficult to challenge them as a single demon, so to match their numbers, I countered with 【Lesser Summoning: Giant】.
However, the Vulcan Bull Orc King might have used 【Greater Summoning: Demonkin】.
The High Orc Mages and Bull Orc Knight Lords there were summoned one after the other possessed high intelligence and wielded weapons of high quality. The Black Fomorians could until take a dozen hits before they reached their limit. In their final moments, they used 【Human Bomb】 and exploded spectacularly.
The overall combat capabilities of the subordinates was pretty even, and they kept on cutting each other down for a short while.
In fact, the area transformed with the bodies kept piling on top of one another. I’d say there were around 10 flesh piles.
As we kept on summoning them, the Vulcan Bull Orc King charged at me, trampling over the bodies of his subordinates.
From then on, it became serious again.
My Surging Destructive Fists of Flesh Crushing were blocked by a swing of his 2 butcher knives. Each blow held a destructive force capable of easily massacring a drake.
With abilities like 【Complete Physical Attack Resistance】 and 【Body Restoration】, it’s so tough that won’t die easily even if his head was blown off. Its near unlimited endurance is so magnificent that he won’t get completely exhausted even if he kept on going at the best of his abilities.
Its 【Intuition】 granted it superior perception so it was hard to attack him from the front and because it’s a wild boar, he was faster than he appeared. Its big frame was surprisingly agile, full of muscles and hardly held any fat.
It took a reasonable distance from me by executing several consecutive high-speed back-flips. After dodging the stab of my vermilion spear by easily jumping in the air, it turned around and tried to crush my head with its cleaver.
From time to time it dispelled my predictions by acting eccentrically such as bouncing its body. My exoskeleton was broken several times by its cleaver to the extent that my entrails were spread out.
Even after I hardened my defenses, I received a certain amount of damage. Most likely, it has an ability along the lines of 【Physical Damage Penetration】.
While its offensive and defensive power were slight inferior to the Large Vulcan Golden Elephant from before, the Vulcan Bull Orc King made up for it through his high movement speed and natural agility. In all honesty, even the fight against the Water Hero’s party cannot be compared to this warrior.
Analyzing the general situation, it seems like you can’t kill the Vulcan Bull Orc King in battle by cutting and shaving off his absurd stamina. In the time that it would take, his opponent would certainly be exhausted.
Pulling out his heart, crushing his head, eating his internal organs raw; I destroyed his body to such an extent that it should’ve normally died a dozen times over. I was able to finally kill him after I instinctively exhausted his body.
Incidentally, in parallel the Large Vulcan Golden Elephant was about to die and unleashed his hidden power. A golden surge spread over its body. It felt like it forcefully made him more powerful. Minokichi-kun and the others took advantage of that moment and instantly used combination attack 【Eight Demon Annihilation Formation ・ Destructive Shot】. They were successfully able to hit it and barely obtained victory like that.
Like that, we were able to subjugate both of them successfully. But after the fight was finished, we became exhausted and were covered all over with wounds.
Especially because of the backlash of using all of one’s power in the combination attack, the fatigue of the 8 demons passed over their peak.
【Field Boss ［Large Vulcan Golden Elephant］ successfully eliminated】
【【Coffin of the Gigantic Elephant Soldier】 was awarded as a first time subjugation bonus】
【Field Boss ［Vulcan Bull Orc King］ successfully eliminated】
【【Mausoleum of the Wild Boar King】 was awarded as a first time subjugation bonus】
Since the 8 demons couldn’t move, they were gradually being cooked by the geothermal heat. If left like this, they’d suffer terrible burns.
You could say that they were somewhat protected by their armor, but as time passes by, the damage from the heat passes deeper into the body. If it comes to that, it’ll be harder to treat than a surface burn.
As I could still move because of 【Round-the-clock】, I set up the Skeleton Centipede as a temporary base. I picked them all up from the ground, as they still weren’t able to move, and put them in, in order to avoid them getting burned.
I also spontaneously threw the countless amount of corpses and both chests into my item box. After all that was over, I was finally able to take a break.
Because of my recovery abilities, I was already able to recover a little bit very quickly. While 3 minutes would be enough for me, the others needed more rest. Fortunately, there were no signs of dungeon monsters in our vicinity and we were able to restore a considerable part of our health.
While taking the break, we were talking about what we’d do next.
You could say that we hadn’t recovered perfectly, as Seiji-kun and Kugime-chan still weren’t back to their normal condition.
Anything is possible when forced though.
But it’s needed to not overdo it. Right now, it was necessary to rest.
Because of that, we decided to descend to the 【Boundary Range】 and get to the safety zone.
Since it would take some time on foot, we went on straight with the Skeleton Centipede.
Tomorrow, we’ll pick up where we left off and challenge the 5th field boss. But for today, I want to sleep soundly and recover.
We’ll have the 2 field bosses as breakfast tomorrow morning. As for today, we’ll have a pork party with the large amount of orcs and bull orcs.

|Champsy||How hard is it to simply say you can’t win a war of attrition, instead of using these crappy descriptions?|
