It took me quite a long time to learn the skill. When I returned home, I decided to go to the blacksmith workshop to enhance this ‘small shield’ that had saved my life so many times.
Using a mixture of crushed merman’s scale and femto stone, I refined the shield with a whetstone. The shield then emitted a pale, blue light before it disappeared. I appraised the shield again.
【Small Shield (Fire Resistance+)】
It seemed I had successfully enhanced the water attribute to the shield.

If I used this shield with ‘fortress’, I might be able to block a fire attack.
After having a decent meal, I felt sleepy. I cleaned myself and Ash with a wet towel, brushed my teeth and then I went to sleep.
The next morning, I decided to practice my newly acquired skills.
I had a light breakfast, did my daily sword training and then I practiced ‘charge arrow’ while I was practicing marksmanship.

After that, with a slime as my opponent, I kept on going on the defense, practicing by activating ‘fortress’. I kept ‘fortress’ on by replenishing my vitality and HP through eating berzin herb and irene herb.

T/N: Oooh? Practicing blacksmithing also increases MC’s dexterity? I guess that’s because you need a nimble hand to make the shape?
