Kumoko molts for the first time as she levels up and discovers the benefits of leveling up. Getting excited, Kumoko decides to grind her level until she can eat the egg she found. Kumoko then hunts monsters, including more of the Elroe Frog species as well as the species Finjicote, Elroe Randanel, and Elroe Peckatot. In the process numerous skills also increase in level. The toughest monster Kumoko faces is the Elroe Basilisk due to its petrification attack, causing Kumoko to have to take cover behind the egg and use it as a shield, though the egg remains unharmed. Kumoko turns the tables and blinds the Basilisk and then crushes it with the egg.
