Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 113


Chapter 113: Abnormal Combat(s) (I)

Knight skill of the sixth step, [Lock on].

Even Yang Wenzhao, with his strength that reached the fifth step, found this [Lock on] skill quite threatening, let alone this Xing Xuan whose cultivation level was quite inferior to Long Hao Chen. No matter how great his dodging abilities were, [Lock on] was completed in an instant, and [Holy Sword Strike] instantly twisted the air, aiming to strike him as Long Hao Chen pursued him.

To assassins, “What one should be the most afraid of is the skill [Lock on] used by knights. When an assassin trains to the sixth step, gaining the possibility of learning the skill [Invisibility], he will still be countered by the skill [Lock on].”

However, just like this red-colored [Lock on] was fast to appear, it was also fast to disappear. After twinkling for an instant, this red light dissipated. Because Xing Xuan kept flying away, [Holy Light Strike] didn’t have a target to reach, and could only scatter on the ground.

Bang.

The yellow dirt suddenly brightened, making an astonishing sight appear in the eyes of the other competitors. On the ground, a 15 meters high and 10 meters large immense ravine appeared, and all the surrounding yellow dirt turned brown, clearly from the effect of the light-elemental luminous scorching attack. An intense aura of the light attribute rapidly surged out from the ground.

As Xing Xuan’s both feet touched the ground, his eyes twinkled with an infinitely bewildered look. In a split second, he felt as if he had risen to heaven. Looking around, as soon as he saw this immense ravine, his clothes started to be soaked in cold sweat. If such a tyrannical attack had hit his body, he was afraid that there wouldn’t even be bones left of him. Without the slightest hesitation, Long Hao Chen had voluntarily removed [Lock on] so that this attack wouldn’t really fall on his body.

Completely terrified and extremely nervous, he let these words slip, “I admit my defeat, thank you for having been lenient, big sister’s man.”

As expected, he conceded to Long Hao Chen but this appellation astonished him completely, “Big sister’s man? What’s a big sister’s man?”

“Victor, Long Hao Chen.” The referee declared Long Hao Chen the winner of this match, as he sent astonished looks to him. This powerhouse of the seventh step had no idea what ability Long Hao Chen had relied on to find Xing Xuan’s location.

Of course, what they didn’t know was that Long Hao Chen’s mental capacity was completely different from ordinary people, who would be completely unable to immediately find an assassin using [Holding Back Breath]. Previously, when Xing Xuan had been dodging and concealing himself from him, Long Hao Chen relied on his powerful perception, and mental capacity to follow Xing Xuan’s moves, He shut his two eyes to focus on using his mental capacity to determine his accurate position. It was for the same reason that he was calmly using [Storing Power].

Knight of the fifth step, this was enough to make all the other competitors of this third group alert . They clearly saw that Long Hao Chen hadn’t released his mount at all! If this kind of knight of the fifth step also had a powerful mount, his strength was bound to be on the height of an enormous tower.

The most gloomy were these few assassins. [Lock on]; this man of big sister surprisingly had such a skill normally used by knights of the sixth step. How could they be a match for him? Without the slightest hesitation, all they could aim for was the possibility of ending up second of this group.

At the moment Long Hao Chen obtained the victory of this first match, the second group’s competition was also extremely fierce and bitterly ongoing.

“Second match, Lin Xin, Sima Xian, you may go on stage.”

Lin Xin didn’t know this bald priest at all, and he walked over to the stadium while looking up to his opponent.

This was a priest gown, but this guy was extremely robust. Weren’t priests’ bodies supposed to be extremely feeble?

Head full of doubts, Lin Xin was heading to the stadium.

Sima Xian wasn’t nervous at all. The word ‘fear’ didn’t exist in this bald priest’s vocabulary. Grabbing his thick staff, he walked forward with large strides, heading to the stadium.

The referee calmly said, “Because priests aren’t good at attacking, as long as a priest manages to hold out for ten minutes, the match will be considered as his victory. The match may start.”

The most important thing for a priest in a teamfight is actually his ability to heal and to support, and as a result, a pure combat is absolutely unfair to a priest. Thus, the Demon Hunt Selection designed these rules.

Facing Sima Xian, Lin Xin showed his most handsome smile, “Hello brother Sima. I am the mage bearing the number 1 and also the one who ended up ranked first of the preliminaries. Let me give you a piece of advice: it would be better for you to concede now; if I were to injure you, wouldn’t it affect the rest of your competition?”

Mages were publicly known as the most powerful among the six temples in terms of offensive power. What priests were the weakest against were assassin, and then mages. Lin Xin told Sima Xian that his attacks were extremely powerful and that he had no way to bear them, and so, the best for him to avoid losing face was to concede.

If it was another priest who was about to face the first ranked mage of the preliminaries, he would probably be completely intimidated. But was it like that for Sima Xian? This fellow was a priest, but there was only violence in his mind.

“Concede my ass. The great I has also ended up first in the Priests Preliminaries. I am coming.” As he spoke, Sima Xian took big strides forward, directly charging toward Lin Xin. His dark-colored staff with a faint gold-colored gem atop suddenly shone, spreading a rich sacred light all around, proper to priests.

This fellow really was a wooden club. Lin Xin was sighing to himself as he lifted up his right hand, making a fire cloud crystal that served as his staff immediately appear in his hand. The fire attribute was immediately amplified around him; a thick fire essence filled the air surrounding his whole body with a thin red color.

Looking at this scene, without needing to mention that Li Xin was startled, even Cai’er wrinkled her brows as she felt the intensity of the fire essence that was filling the air around them.

The fire cloud crystal was pointed forward, making an immense blazing shield appear before Lin Xin. This was the skill [Fire Shield] of the second step, but used by Lin Xin, this [Fire Shield] was a foot long, and half a foot wide. His body was entirely behind it, making the atmosphere of the whole stadium blazing.

Sima Xian was also shivering, but it didn’t affect his charge. With a shout, the staff in his hand directly smashed against the [Fire Shield].

Is… Is this a priest?

Lin Xin opened his eyes wide, and all the other competitors of the second group did the same.

With a Puff sound, the [Fire Shield] violently swayed, and countless cracks appeared at the place against which the rod collided.

Sima Xian didn’t stop moving, his enormous rod hitting the ground, Bang bang bang bang.

Repeated series of blows fell on the [Fire Shield], fire scattered in all direction, and the the [Fire Shield] couldn’t stand the attack anymore.

Lin Xin’s immediate reaction was to curse him secretly: Damn!

Once again raising his fire cloud crystal, he didn’t omit chanting another incantation. A rich flame blossomed from him, it was [Repelling Ring of Fire]. Just like his [Fire Shield] this [Repelling Ring of Fire] was at least twice the size of usual ones.

But at this moment, the gem in Sima Xian’s staff brightened, creating a white vibrating ring, fiercely striking against [Repelling Fire Ring].

[Sacred Knock].

[Repelling Ring of Fire] and [Sacred Knock] met each other. Sima Xian’s magical staff swept away, Bang, [Fire Shield] was dispersed.

Lin Xin was a mage of the fifth step. When compared to Sima Xian who was only at the fourth step, there was a big gap between both sides. In particular, Lin Xin’s control over the fire element was especially formidable. In the instant the [Fire Shield] was dispersed, another [Fire Shield] immediately appeared, and another [Repelling Fire Ring] was released. These ones struck Sima Xian, pushing him back.

Is there a mistake? Isn’t this guy closer to a warrior? A warrior draped in priest clothes.

Lin Xin was completely speechless. Murmuring the verses of another incantation, he shot a reddish-gold-colored fireball. As everyone thought that he was about to attack, this reddish-gold-colored fireball divided into more little fireballs, aimed at the six directions around him.

“Pure Element [Fire Shield], let me see how you will break through this.” Lin Xin shouted in anger.

Sima Xian disdainfully twitched his mouth, “Pure Element [Fire Shield] my ass, I’ll break it the same way.” Right after speaking, he bellowed a warcry, before charging once again. Lifting the magical staff in his hand, he concentrated a lot of power. Simultaneously, an enormous [Sacred Hammer] ferociously hit his [Pure Element Fire Shield].

For a moment, on the stadium, a fire-red-colored light and a gold-colored light simultaneously appeared. A concentrated spiritual energy unceasingly surged out on the battlefield.

“Big sis Li Xin, how is it that I can’t really make sense of what I’m hearing?” Cai’er asked Li Xin, looking at a loss and uncomprehending.

A bitter smile was drawn on Li Xin’s face as she replied, “Don’t say you can’t make sense of what you’re hearing… I cannot even make sense of what I’m seeing. A mage is fighting against a priest, but the priest is the main attacker, and the mage is the main defender. It’s really…”

Abnormal, this was abnormal combat. The bald priest Sima Xian was charging while lifting up his magical staff, just like a dragon about to sail out, unceasingly bombarding Lin Xin’s defense.

Lin Xin was quite firm, constantly releasing his defense. Letting Sima Xian constantly attack, like rain, he didn’t move the slightest bit. But he didn’t use any offensive abilities.

Lin Xin’s fire cloud crystal occasionally repaired the defense, and with a proud look, he said, “Baldie, it won’t do. Do you think you will break through my defense one day? Let me see how you will manage to, hmpf.”

Sima Xian let out a cold snort, “What is there to be proud of? The great I is only using his physical strength to attack you. You are using up your internal spiritual energy, so sooner or later, it will end up completely depleted. At this moment, let me see how you will block my attacks.” Actually, he was completely baffled by the power of Lin Xin’s spiritual energy. If he used some tyrannical offensive magic, he was afraid that there would be no way for him to resist them, since he could use none of the defensive abilities normally used by priests. However, from beginning to end, this guy had never attacked. Why?

Lin Xin, full of disdain, curled up his lips, extending his left hand. With a sparkle, a crystal bottle appeared in it.

“For you to want to use up my spiritual energy, I’m afraid that it will be nothing more than daydreams. Big bro has drugs. Do you see, each of the pills in this battle can restore 200 units of spiritual energy. Let me see for how long your body will be able to hold out.”

Sima Xian opened his eyes wide, “This is clearly a shameless act.”

Lin Xin, with an air of complacency, spoke back, “What are you calling shameless act? The great competition doesn’t forbid taking medicine. Big bro has drugs, big bro has drugs, do you have some? Let alone this, for such a little amount of spiritual energy, who would contest the fact big bro is taking medicines?”

      • dragonmage

        only these kinds but ya stay away from little Hao Chen we do not need a drug-y Sicon of Light (who will want to see Cai’er reaction and action taken if Hao Chen starts getting addicted to drugs …brr horrifying look at what she did for that injury that was mainly self inflected due to skill used *shudder* i do not want to know what she will do to a drug dealer that turns him into a addict)

  • iamsleepless

    thanks for the chapter

  • Skoll

    CALLED IT ON THE LOCK-ON ABILITY LAST CHAPTER!

  • kensche heiashi

    Thank ya very much for the translation, translator! Many thanks towards the Author!

  • Ewilan

    Merci pour le chapitre

  • Skoll

    Oh and, now we know what the grandpa meant when he called Lin Xin useless. He cant use offensive abilities it seems

    • RyokoZero

      We see why his grandpa is pissed. He prob has some excellent potential too… just never trained the good stuff… too afraid to get hurt bolstered his defensive ability.

  • ⒼⓞⓀⓊ☁

    ty

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter! Lol at this battle!

  • Ratty

    so a priest who can only use offensive abilities and a mage who can only use defensive abilities. hah.

  • k1nk4

    Thanks for the chapter!

    Great! A mage without dps… >.>

  • Bellaneliz Jimenez

    “lol sup baldie? i have a lot of drugs and you have none” thats the way you intimidate your enemy, so fancy lin xin. thanks for the chapter.

  • Tetsuki

    SO PRIEST WILL WIN BECAUSE OF 10 MINUTES…

    • Andrez-ssi

      my thoughts exactly

    • Wait, I thought the priest was Lin Xin..?

      • Verslint

        nooooooo, the awesome drug-pushing mage is Lin Xin (^^,)

        • I know, it was an ironic remark XD

          • Verslint

            my bad, irony and sarcasm are two things I’ve never successfully picked up on… trolling translator lolz. thanks for the hard work btw

      • Need eye candy

        Haha teh translator is trolling >.>

    • Nonon

      SEE THE TEASER

  • Andrez-ssi

    “Big sister’s man”, lol
    the otp’s being publicly recognized

    • that assassins is accept him okayy haha and so the public will thinking this too >3< im so happy to see this coment before me lol

  • Verslint

    Damn, had a good laugh now…. “What are you calling shameless act? The great competition doesn’t forbid taking medicine. Big bro has drugs, big bro has drugs, do you have some?”

    The mere fact that Lin Xin manages to defend himself against the tyrannical attacks of a battle priest is amazing enough. Mages normally only have, what, one defense spell? He’s actually holding out against him on a purely defensive point? That’s pretty amazing. Plus the thoughts Sima Xian had wondering why Lin Xin wasn’t attacking got me wondering the same as well. If Lin Xin blasts him out of the ring during the next chapter I will laugh at all the nay-sayers! Leave Lin Xin alone, he’s awesome (plus he has drugs ROFL)

    …don’t do drugs kids, it’s bad for you, nkay?

    …and luckily we’re in a fantasy word where performance enhancing drugs aren’t looked down upon and their creators scorned. The epic battle against the invading demon army leaves no quarter.
    (If no-one could notice it, I’m a Lin Xin fan, for some reason the guy struck a chord with me from the start, the damn drug-pushing loon lolz)

    • Firekarkon

      SEE THE TEASER. Your Lin Xin forgot about smthing!

      • Verslint

        …I don’t know whether I should laugh or cry… (pfft) Can’t wait to see the rest

  • Xias

    Lin Xin totally forgot that the priest will automatically be the winner if the match lasts for 10 minutes.
    Muhahaha… Lin Xin, you lose. ;-p

  • Rusou

    Drug pushing mage and a non defensive priest great team lol

  • Joseph Glover

    Joshua S, ת וחניש, Patrick D, Luda L, Cole H, Pavel K … rock(hands up)

  • Jukuys

    when will hao yue make their appearance?

  • Novanether

    Great a Support only mage/dealer and a Priest/berserk. This will be a fun party. So besides the Big shieldAxe Worrior who is the Sixth monster?

    • Nomaan Tahir

      Summoner who can summon 8th step monsters.

      • Toto

        Maybe he can only summon 1 monster :

        • Nomaan Tahir

          Possibly, but even if that’s the case as an 8th Step monster it’s comparable to a 7th Step Knight, more than adequate back up for them.

  • kai ran

    Thank you for the chapter

  • jacbopaige

    Rofl XD

    I think they’ve forgotten which one will win by default in a war of attrition 😉

  • Nyaa Flonnezilla

    hey toto-ni
    did u suggest the idea of cloning for faster release 😉

  • Scarecrow

    … Don’t tell me he’s a mage that is no good at attack spells?

    • Nomaan Tahir

      Yes like he told LHC back in the auction house.

    • thiec

      He switch role with a priest LOL

  • RyokoZero

    Lin Xin should be a shame to call himself a mage. I would have expected him to either rock illusion style magic or even better corrosion style, so he can melt his opponent.

    Oh, and LHC is so merciful.

    • Nomaan Tahir

      He already said back when he met LHC that he didn’t have much offensive power. Not sure why you had those expectations in light of that.

      • RyokoZero

        I didnt mage stands for dps… I am appalled just like his grandfather.

        • Nomaan Tahir

          If you knew that he had no offensive power (because he admitted it many chapters ago), then why did you expect him to have offensive power?

  • bruh

    big bro has drugs, big bro has drugs ~

    i drug young knight,i drug young knight ~

    big bro has drugs,big bro has drugs ~

    use it in the match,use it in the match ~

  • Akki

    This whole chapter is cracking me up really bad…. the big sister’s man-part, the exchange between Cai’er and Li Xin and finaly the drug part..? XDD
    Toto, I can see why you mentioned that this chapter would be hillaroius.
    Thanks for the chapter! 🙂

  • Pavel

    Thanks.

  • VanillaCustardPie

    Thank you~

  • Majk

    So we have the dream party of: The Scion of Light, The Scion of Samsara, Defensive mage/alchemist that can give pills to upgrade the team, Offensive prist that cant heal but can hit harder then many fighters and finally a summoner that uses an unknown summoning method to summon high level(i think) beasts. HOLY BOLLOCKS this sound like fun I really hope that it will happen

    • Celestenya

      One party full of freaks, coming right up.

      • anonymous

        • Celestenya

          Yep, it’s going to be hilarious.

          I just realised, Majk missed the warrior girl who uses a shield as a weapon, just to complete the party of 6 XD

  • Dokidori.chan 97

    I just realized something. This priest berserker reminds me of another character I know.

    “Dàgē had also learned a bunch of useful abilities, although most of them were offensive abilities… Dàgē, please remember that you are a priest– Hey, Dàgē! Killing monsters is my job, so could you please stop charging forward and sending the mobs flying with a kick? You’re making me – the warrior – lose face. Also, stop secretly increasing your strength; you’re supposed to place your points in willpower and intelligence, you hear? Kicking again?!”

    • Irvandy Hong

      What’s the title?

      • Dokidori.chan 97

        1/2 prince

  • Hurges

    the moment when you got to be known as someone man/fiancé before yourself even know it XD.

  • Grenpie

    LOL! Thanks for this hilarious chapter.
    Now, the upcoming party will be more balance. The priest will dish dmg instead of the mage and the mage will support with defense spell while healing party with drugs. XD

  • Drifter

    Hao Chen better come back and make it up for his absence by being just as powerful LHC has become or more. The beast just ate a 10000 dollar/currency worth of artifact.
    @totobro:disqus bro how long till he makes an appearance ?

    • HAO YUE

      Looking at the raws, the next time Hao Yue’s name pops up is in 115.

    • no spoiler here pls. If you want to ask/give spoilers, do it on the doc in links or in spcnet forums.

  • The Dragon King

    “Big sis Li Xin, how is it that I can’t really make sense of what I’m hearing?” Cai’er asked Li Xin – WTF when did this happen?

  • The Dragon King

    Big bro has drugs, big bro has drugs, do you have some? – lol this was hilairious I want to record that or for him to say it in front of the police.
