Greatest Alchemist? Chapter 36

Chapter 36: Artisan Type Practice

The request to raise Sophia and Maria’s Adventurers Guild rank had been completed.
Since evolving, Kaede is affectionate with Sophia and Maria, and spends her time spinning thread or playing alone even when I seclude myself in the workshop.

「I plan on working on production for a while today. Sophia and Maria, you can pass the time as you please.」
「Then I will do spear and magic training with Maria, and then practice sewing with Kaede.」
「Yes, I too want to get better at sewing.」
「Kaede, will make lots of thread.」

Even Kaede is raring to go, but it would be great if she doesn’t overexert herself making thread.

「Kaede, don’t tire yourself too much making thread.」

Kaede raised her hand and responded energetically.

「Oh right, there’s also Kaede’s shirt.」
「Then I will sew one together with Sophia-san.」
「Yeah, please do.」

I handed Maria the Spider Silk cloth I made previously and went to the workshop.

「Now then, what should I practice.」

Job: Warrior Lv100, Magus Lv1
( Magic Bestower Lv32, Carpenter Lv16, Alchemist Lv52, Blacksmith Lv48, Tailor Lv26 )

Checking my status, the first skill I must develop is the Bestowal Magic skill. Alchemy skills are already quite difficult to level. I also want to improve my Smithing skills. My Sewing skills also still have a ways to go.

Next, the attribute magic skills Water and Wind are low. Time-Space attribute magic is already hard to level but it’s necessary so I can use Warp and Gate magic in the future. Light attribute magic is high from using purifying magic everyday so I think it would be fine to just leave it to improve by itself.

「For now, let’s try practicing magic while simultaneously working.」

After making a plan for what train in production and magic, I started invoking the low skill level Water and Wind attribute magic.
I made water balls and wind orbs float and swirl around me, aiming to improve my Water Attribute Magic, Wind Attribute Magic, and Magic Power Manipulation skills[1]. And at the same time, I transmuted the silver I had stocked in my item box with some copper and aluminium to make sterling silver.
Next, I roughly shaped it with Smithing magic, then carved the details of the metal manually. The numeric value of Dexterity on my status is over 300, which makes working on details much easier than before.
During that time, water balls and wind orbs swirled around me.

〈The 「Water Attribute Magic」 Skill has leveled up〉
〈The 「Wind Attribute Magic」 Skill has leveled up〉

As for what it is I’m doing, I’m making rings as a medium for magic invocation for Sophia and Maria.
It is not a problem even if the medium for magic invocation is not a staff. Given that Sophia, who is a magic swordswoman, can’t hold onto a staff while fighting, it has to be a ring or a bracelet so it doesn’t hinder her fight so I decided on a ring.

〈The 「Metalworking」 Skill has leveled up〉
〈The 「Water Attribute Magic」 Skill has leveled up〉
〈The 「Wind Attribute Magic」 Skill has leveled up〉

I carved the designs of wings for Sophia’s ring, and flames for Maria’s ring.

〈The 「Blacksmith」 Job has leveled up〉
〈The 「Magus」 Job has leveled up〉

I also made a medium for magic invocation for myself while I was at it.

「As I thought, it has to be a ring so it isn’t a hindrance.」

What design should I use on my ring…………, okay, let’s go with a crescent moon.

Thus, I did it in one try.
I held the three formed rings in my right hand. Only at this time did I cancel the water balls and wind orbs that were floating around me.

Fuu~~ Alright!」

Firing myself up, I concentrated magic power in my right hand and charged it with an image.


My magic power decreased.

When my magic power ran low, I drank mana potions, not even stopping as I charged the rings with magic power.
Filling up my stomach with mana potions, my magic power recovered while I continuing to charge the rings with magic power.

〈The 「Increased Magic Power Recovery Speed」 has been obtained 〉
〈The 「Magic Power Manipulation」 Skill has leveled up〉

The reaction from the rings in my right hand changed.

「Was it successful?」

Divine Silver Ring
Magic Power Enhancement (Large) ・ Magic Formula Management Assist (Large)
Magic Power Manipulation Assist (Large)

Appraisal confirmed it but it seems it was a success.

It was written in books in the library that Mithril is the result of silver being continuously exposed to dense magic power for a very long time. So I thought, what if I make it artificially but…………, that was tiring. Nevertheless, it became Divine Silver. It already has 3 amazing effects even without it being enchanted yet.

「But it might be better to buy mithril.」

Although I was somehow able to make 3 small mithril alloy rings by drinking mana potions even if they were just basic grade, it would be easier to buy mithril. Because the rings were this difficult, making enough for a mithril sword and an armor would probably be impossible.

I completed the enchantment of 『Automatic Size Adjustment』 on the rings.

Divine Silver Magic Ring
Magic Power Enhancement (Larege) ・Magic Formula Management Assist (Large)
Magic Power Manipulation Assist (Large) ・ Automatic Size Adjustment

When I appraised the finished rings, the name of the rings changed.

「Making items while practicing sure is nice.」

The levels of the skills Water Attribute Magic and Wind Attribute Magic went up to level 5.

When Water Attribute Magic and Wind Attribute Magic went up to level 5, I was convinced that I could learn Ice Attribute Magic Skill and Lightning Attribute Magic Skill intuitively.

「Un, I think I can do it.」

A lump of ice floated on my outstretched arm.

〈The 「Ice Attribute Magic」 Skill has been obtained.〉

「So, this is next?」

I outstretched my arm.


My arm was clad in lightning.

〈The 「Lightning Attribute Magic」 Skill has been obtained.〉

「It looks like it is possible to apply ice and lightning on magic devices.」

According to the spell book I read in the library, Ice Attribute Magic and Lightning Attribute Magic are treated as superior attribute skills, only those who were born with a gift for it from the goddess or when those with an aptitude for water and wind attribute magic have developed the levels those skills can acquire it.
In my case, it was the latter.

「I might be able to make a refrigerator with this.」

I have an Item Box so I don’t need a refrigerator, but it’s useful for chilling drinks and it looks like it will sell at the Papeck Company.

    1. Raws don’t have wind orbs and wind attribute magic written in this sentence but a few sentences down it says that there were also wind orbs so I’ll add it here for more consistency.[↩]
