Log Horizon 2 Episode 3: Raid boss!


Raids can last a month? Is that how MMORPGs are these days? If so, then it's definitely a good thing I never participate in them. I've played games with smaller-scale raids that lasted maybe an hour or two...I'm pretty sure that's all my attention span can take, especially if you're facing and studying the same exact enemy for such a long time. At the end of the day, it's hard to beat a good PvP match, am I right? On another note, has Shiroe really not died yet in the raid? I understand that he's always standing by and analyzing the situation, but you'd think everyone on the party would die at least once with all of the failures they've been having with the raid bosses.

What exactly was the point of the discussion of skill levels? Is it meant to suggest that the group will have to face a player using "Teaching"-level skills? Or is it something Shiroe will encounter soon? It would certainly explain why Akatsuki dies on Christmas Eve (or why either of the two dies for that matter). Anyway, it looks like the focus might shift back to Akihabara next week.

    "Teaching" is a very bad translation. The novels had that supreme skill level translated to "Overskill". It is an overpowered skill. Think it as a superpower. It is like Kiriko's two sword use. But the diference is that is not only the MC that have it, but different players will have it.

    The fact that players level 90 and above have a small chance to gain it will be important soon.

    Now try to imagine what will be a ninja overskill...

    I don't think the translation really changes my interpretation of it. Probably the most important takeaways are the fact that the new skill level was explained early for no reason and the fact that it's higher than any previous skill level.

    The skill discussion also gave some info on why Akatsuki feels weak. She never did any raid so she doesn't have any upgraded skill...nods
