Was kinda bored and figured I might as well finally start reading the Overlord LN but there seem to be multiple different translations or releases and I'm completely confused as to which to get.
What the fuck are these Dark and White versions supposed to be?
>>
>>160809230
The outdated ones by more than year. Original source & mega have the newest ones.

>>160809230
dark versions are pdfs with fucking black backgrounds behind white text anon
did you try actually looking at them, it would take a grand total of 2 seconds to figure this out for yourself

Just finished the anime, pretty gud. Why was Ains struggling with Shaltear? I thought he was above all the NPC's. And is he just a high level player or like a gamemaster?
>>
>>160814786
All the NPC's are lvl 100, just like him. Max levl is 100.
>>
>>160814869
And he and his buddies created them right?
>>
>>160814786
Ainz's build is pretty much a necromancer and Shalltear is purely specced in combat. Summoning anything against Shalltear would be useless, because of Spuit Lance healing her when she strikes something with it. And yeah like >>160814869 said, all Floor guardians are lvl 100, just like Ainz is.
>>

>>160814786
He's tougher than her but she's
A.) the strongest NPC in Nazrick (Why did their guild have her guarding the first floor, dont they know anything about dungeon design?)
and
B.) She specifically counters him due to having lots of holy damage and also being undead and thus immune to all his favorite fancy necromancy.
>>
>>160815409
It's not like they wanted their fortress to actually be taken. It was supposed to be an impossible to clear dungeon so obviously they stack most of their super strong shit at the start to make sure nobody can halfheartedly get past and vandalize their shit so they'd have to rebuild it again.
>>
>>160815409
Hmm I thought he said that Albedo was the thoughest NPC

They straight up tell you this

Also ainz specifically said he had a relatively weak build because he picked class levels and skills based on roleplay/flavor reasons instead of minmaxing.

Just live long enough for someone to actually create it. 50 years tops.

Also how would Sebas fare against other guardians? Monks are budget characters since they don't use many equips, but on the other hand their abilities are OP as fuck to compensate. Hell I remember D&D 3.5 monks being immune to half the damage and just dodging the rest (at high levels).
>>
>>160817917
So what exactly is Sebas? Besides a badass butler.
>>
>>160817971
Boss of the Pleiades. Being a butler, he's basically a personal assistant to Supreme Beings instead of just guarding the 9th floor. Despite what some may say, it was never implied he's lower than floor guardians.
>>
>>160817908
but that's the whole point of the series
>>
>>160817908
He has taken over one country so far and made two others his bitch.
>>
>>160817917
So Sebastian is the Pleiades little brother?
>>
>>160818148
I meant like species, he can't be a human, being part of Ainz Ooal Gown
>>
>>160817615
Kinda weird how he can create NPC's more powerful than him
>>
>>160818658
It's not like there is a linear power structure, that would make for a boring game. They are of comparable power levels to their respective classes, but her's is a direct counter to his, as well as her species being immune to his main attacks.
>>
>>160818658
In a straight up fight she's more powerful, but you have to realize Ainz isn't some min-maxed tryhard cancer bullshit like Shalltear's build is. He's in a pure "Roleplaying" build which sacrifices raw power for random bullshit, like his ritual that allows him to learn spells past the limit cap, so while every single person is limited to 200, he has 710+ and counting.

TL:DR Shaltear = minmaxed Ainz = rp build
>>
>>160818435
He's a dragon.
>>160818410
If you consider "Little brother" the strongest combatant in nazarick besides Rubedo.
>>
>>160818922
How would Sebas react if the Pleiades called him "otouto~suu"?
>>
>>160817681
wich for the new world standards still qualifies him as a living god, so no concerns so far, and yet the only things that can pose a threat comes from nazarick itself and maybe some world items.
>>
>>160818870
Isn't his build possibly more advantageous to him given his situation?
>>
If Ainz preped Shalltear with counter strategies and cash items could she beat TouchMe?

For NW standards, Ainz and the guardians are all living gods. Them battling each other is like Zeus and Athena fighting in Mt. Olympus in a greek play.

Maybe if he came out naked and has one arm tied up and that's a maybe, touch me is in the top 10 strongest warriors.

>>160822402
>god
Ainz needs more followers for that, he'll then gain a divine spark and become a deity.
>>
>>160820459
hence he is aptly titled Sorcerer King
>>
>>160820459
In the NW yes, because he can continue learning new spells and possibly rip spells from the other magic system too. But in a high-tier pvp fight hell fucking no. He even says it himself with all his knowledge and even knowing everything about his opponents abilities, weapons and all that he'd be about middling against all the high-tier people.
>>
>>160823581
you can't trust what he says about himself

on one volume, he says that he's in the middle of the high-tiers

on another volume, he regards himself to be on the top of the mid-tiers

on volume three, he psyched himself declaring that his chance of victory on PvP is actually very high

Wasn't Shalltear in the middle of the uper top tier? I bet with Ainz fighting manual and cheat items she could have a 50/50 chance.
>>
>>160824206
also perfect warrior
>>
>>160824335
Didnt he job like 2 or 3 times to the other world champions?, I bet he's among the weaker ones.

I'll tell you what though, I adore that Ainz keeps adding different enchanted weapons to his fighting style. Shows he's willing to learn and improve.

Remember, no happy endings if you're not from the tomb.
>>
>>160827622
Author gave nips the option on what to do with Arche - have her become Shalltear's fucktoy as is on the WN, or have mercy on her and have her killed. Nips chose mercy. The tweest here is that with Arche gone, her sisters no longer have any hope from getting out of slavery.

So yeah, regardless of the options, wtf author
>>
You know, Ainz sure does gripe about MP costs a lot. Does his MP only restore after a day or something? We've never heard of MP potions or passive MP regeneration as far as I know. Ainzs' HP potion he gave to Brita was also blue, leaving me to believe that MP potions dont exists.

But, if you think of it based on D&D, it kind of makes sense. Magic users only get so many casts of magic a day in D&D.
>>
>>160828305
There is passive mana restoration, there are no mana potions.
>>
>>160828592
What makes you think there is passive?
>>
>>160828629
Ainz refers to it several times.
>>
>>160828692
Such as?
>>
>>160828305
It's a mix of d&d with more normal mmos.
Supertier spells and such follow more of that, you cast it once every so many hours/days.
Normal spells are on a mana system where you cast it as much as you can. Mana seems to regenerate constantly as stated by ainz multiple times.
>>
>>160828745
>Mana seems to regenerate constantly as stated by ainz multiple times.
Well, I mean, if mana did regenerate at a sufficient level, you would see him waste more time in Shaltears fight. But he had to partially pick every spell ahead of time to not be out of mana.
>>
>>160828796
It doesn't mean It regenerates at a quick enough rate to spam high tier spells.
>>
>>160828950
I DEMAND SCIENTIFIC MAGICAL EVIDENCE!
>>
>>160828796
shalltear wasn't just doing nothing, she also has the ability to heal. the point is that killing her requires burst damage and you can't wait to regen mana in that situation.
>>
>>160828796
It probably regenerates fast enough to spam cantrips and first tiers. Elder Liches are known to be able to cast Fireball continuously, so Ainz can probably cast anything up to shit like Cloudkill at-will, but that doesn't cut it with level 10 spells cast with a trillion metamagic feats stacked on.
>>
>>160829364
Hmm, I guess this is a better explanation.
>>
>>160829364
Cantrips are probably at-will for any magic-using PC past level 5 or so.
>>
>>160828950
NW has more options to restore mana like meditating.
Maybe you can restore mana depending on your race too.
> albedo takes in semen and uses it as mana
>>
You know, I can really relate to Ainz' troubles. The annoying thing about playing a (Dread) Necromancer in D&D is that they deal mostly the following status effects either as part of their abilities or as how those effects operate.
>Ability Drain
>Ability Damage
>Blindness/Deafness
>Death Effect
>Negative Energy
The problem is, at high levels, everything and its mom is immune to this shit.
>>
>>160829811
>The problem is, at high levels, everything and its mom is immune to this shit.
Good thing that there's literally nothing that's high tier in the NW. Even the dragons are weak shit that can only cast 3rd tier spells. Shits sad fampai.
>>
>>160829811
That's where you turn from a debuffer into a situational buffer.
>run into a charismatic enemy
>make your entire team deaf so they can't be tricked
>>
>>160829937
That's boring in a different way though
Forcing your Zombie Peasants to Aid Another on each other to craft food worth 10000000 GP is only funny the first few times.
>>
>>160829994
I think the only thing that really keeps Ainz going is his unfounded paranoia about players lurking behind every corner and the few wild WCI's that are floating around in the NW. If he ever got over those issues I think he would just shut down and hole himself up in Nazarick since nothing could challenge him anymore.
>>
>>160830152
If he had a lot of surveillance specialists like Nigredo couldn't he screen the whole world and get rid of his paranoia?
>>
>>160814786
Shalltear is a floor guardian, in other words a World Boss. She's supposed to defend the 1st-3rd floor by herself against a a guild or two. That's why she's strong. All floor guardians can be considered a World Boss level in terms of gaming.
