I could go forward by just walking down the slope that led out to the sea.

And so I started to walk without thinking too much about it.
There were other players around me who were swimming and having a good time.

But I decided to move away from them.
Perhaps it was my instinct as a solo player.
Once I was deep enough that the surface felt like it was far away…I encountered it.
My first sea monster…!

“I see… No wonder that player had guided me here…!”

The enemy monster looked like an eel.
When it slithered out of a gap between two boulders on the ocean floor, I shouted in surprise.
But I didn’t have the same disgust for fish that I had for bugs.
I was just a little surprised, and quickly pulled out my bow and started to attack.
And then I noticed the ‘difference.’

The usual sounds of the bow, ‘kiriri…’ and the arrow cutting through the air as it flew, ‘shu!’ were gone.

It was because I was underwater…!

It’s not like they didn’t fly at all.
But their force was definitely weakened, and the range was also shortened.
I was sure that the other weapons were the same.
You could not swing around a sword as easily, and if your magic wasn’t related to water, then….

“Sky Tear!”

Even this high speed arrow that cut through winds and clouds was no exception, but it seemed to be less affected compared to the other skills.
This was likely due to its shape, which reduced resistance in the water as well.

However, at least I knew why there were so many players being washed up on the beach now.
They had all gotten over-confident and dove too deep.
And then they were killed by some fish monsters.
It seemed that if you were killed in the sea, then you respawned on the beach.

I would…rather not follow in their footsteps.
I knew now that fighting in the water like this would be a bad idea, and so I decided to retreat before being sent to a watery grave.
Besides, it was likely that the port town held the secret of fighting underwater.

“Windcloud Blast!”

Making wind underwater caused lots of bubbles to rise.
I guess both the wind and clouds were weakened in the sea…
But it was enough for what I needed.


The bubbles were blocked by the haori and I was pushed up to the surface.
Once my head was out of the water, I would use Warp Arrow to teleport back to the beach.

While I couldn’t use it during the event, and it had been turned into a charge attack, it was still useful.


The waves suddenly became faster.
And just as I was about to break out from the surface, a current caught me and I was dragged back down.
Is this the beginning of a Scramble?

Indeed, I had wanted to encounter one, but not in the water.
Of course, you weren’t forced to do them, so I could run away.
In that case…

No, this wasn’t a Scramble.
It was definitely a state of emergency, but the thing that came towards me now was…

“A dragon…!”

And not a western one, but a Chinese dragon.
The way that its long body twisted in the water reminded me of how the Windcloud Dragon had flown in the air.
This one was likely just as strong, if not stronger…!

There was no way that I could win in the water.
I struggled in order to escape, but the dragon glared at me, and then it unleashed a terrible tidal breath.
While the Windcloud Dragon ignored me until I attacked, this one was different…

In the first place, it had a much more violent aura about it.
And unlike the other time, I didn’t feel like I had even the slightest chance of winning.
What was it with these dragons?
Was there so big a difference between each type?

Unable to do anything, I was enveloped in its breath, and my vision went black.
