@chucke1992 well as someone who has 10+ year knowledge and experience I'd say it's fine but it does look cheaty from his classmate's POV.

Hm...That skill analysing is kinda cheaty. It is as if he can rival her in power

MC should quit fooling around and first defeat her.

lets just hope the author did that analogy on purpose to show how retarded nobility is

I don't get it. Why is there a need for the mage to catch up to the swordsman? Just snipe the swordsman from behind and stop him from moving. There, I win!

I still think he should just end things a bit fast and possibly tutor her at the end.
THough with the power of nakama the other two should barely win anyways without Desir

@silverden I can never think of that class without remembering 8-bit theater.

@Tomba He wants to win so that he can become a goal of Adjest, but he wants her to become stronger. So he's forcing her into thinking of other solutions than just "cast more magic" or "swing your sword".

@Maala: Ye, something like "before the delay timer counts to 0, the actual link to the chapter on translator's site" could be shown, it could be easily solved via scripts. However, since I dislike delaying, I hope this wont appear. :-D
Yeah, that would be awesome. BTW: I hope you're not too mad, cause of the other comment in the other section.

About the analogy, it only states that magic swordsman will always have an advantage over mages, it does not state how much advantage he will have. Not counting the ability to use magic, a swordsman will have a leap start off the ordinary man. Add Magic to both, and the advantage stays. That is all the analogy stands for.

If you want numbers, then you should take into account the individual abilities too, eg. Romantica can use chantless magic, that is a huge advantage over other mages. And other shenigans like this. (Like, going with your analogy, a person who can aim steady while running?)

@gaigous like a red mage, they can learn both types of magic but cant master either.

@silverden Consistency is the one thing those idiots have going for them. Yeah, I understand why Adjest is the way she is. Duel classes can overcome their weaknesses, but their output and mastery will never reach the level of someone equally talented who chose one path.

@gaigous maybe thats the point. this is a school that focuses on pedicure and rank so they'll try anything to make them seem better than what they truly are. i think the older adjest was forced to adapt due to the war so she overcame the inherant weaknesses of dual classes but the past is still too arragant so desir is trying to force her to adapt.

IKR! I was eye rolling so hard. They didn't mention the biggest drawback to practicing two disciplines, or the perks of min-maxing one path to power.

All that fighting, all that cornering to force Adjest to get stronger.
And oh boy, it worked. In the worst possible way.
Now she doesn't desire just strength. She DESIRes Desirs D!

And that runner analogy was bullshit. Holy shit, how can author not know how his own in-universe powers work?

The mage just has to start running .... what a bullshit analogy.
Avatar
Yeah the analogy is kinda cringy. If a swordsman trains to the point they can run... say 20mph an a mage studies and applies magic to accelerate to 20mph. The analogy then infers magic swordsmen can go 40mph because they can do both, ignoring any specialization or levels of effort. Maybe it is a deliberate analogy since there is a running theme about characters overcoming limits and the common sense is that magic swordsmen are top tier?

Yeah, that analogy was really stupid since it assumed a guy who focused on physical and magical training would be as good as someone who specialized in one of them. If it was that easy then anyone in the setting who isn't a magic swordman is a lazy idiot.

The actual answer is that magic swordmen are incredible because it takes someone with massive talent like Adjest to be as good at magic and swordmanship as someone who only focused on mastering one of those. Anyone else would just turn into a mediocre swordman with mediocre magic skills.

Not like I expected much from the designated asshole racist teacher who underestimates the clearly talented "commoners".
