Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 154


Chapter 154: Long Haochen’s Demon Hunt Squad (I)

Bright morning. The sun was in the middle of rising, bringing this most important human city a sacred luster.

The Knight Stadium was once again bursting with excitement. Many competitors came at dawn, enthusiastically discussing with the people they knew about everything that happened yesterday. Regardless of whether it was the battle between Long Haochen and Yang Wenzhao, or the entanglement of feelings that happened afterward, all of it became a topic of discussion. However, the fact that was the most discussed was actually the Divine Throne that Yang Haohan had released at that time.

The proudest were those competitors from the Knight Temple. Hearing others talk about it and having seen it personally gave off completely different feelings. A Divine Throne’s absolute might was something that even the powerhouse of the ninth step from the Assassin Temple, Sheng Yue, didn’t dare go against blindly. That was a genuine divine artifact!

Long Haochen, Cai’er, and Li Xin arrived together. But upon seeing them enter the stadium, the other competitors couldn’t help but fall silent.

All of the gazes directed toward Long Haochen were filled with admiration. Although young, he had the courage to challenge the rules of the Alliance. He even went against a powerhouse of the ninth step. This courage was not something everyone had. The fact that took them by surprise the most was that, even after all he had done, he looked… perfectly fine?

However, some viewed Long Haochen with pity. After all, what he had renounced was a spiritual stove! Furthermore, he was the champion, the one who had the priority in the choice of his spiritual stove among the three. For this reason, his renouncement appeared even more pitiful.

After a night of rest, Lin Xin seemed to have recovered to a good state, as he took the initiative to call out to him, “Haochen!”

Long Haochen faintly smiled, extending his right arm to him before saying, “Brother Lin, later on we are going to be squad partners.”

Lin Xin flung his own deep green hair before extending his hand in turn, “We are not only partners, but also brothers.”

As both hands grasped the other, Long Haochen nodded to him.

As before, upon seeing Lin Xin, Li Xin’s complexion didn’t look so good. She simply snorted coldly before turning her head around.

If not for this guy, things wouldn’t have gotten so complicated. Sure, those three bottles of pills that Lin Xin gave at that time were very valuable. However, what Long Haochen had to give in return was not only a place in his own team, but in addition and more importantly, he had to pay the price of a spiritual stove. It was just beyond comparison with those pills.

Lin Xin didn’t dare provoke the people in Long Haochen’s group and so went to the front to find a place to sit on.

After a short time, all of the competitors were reunited. The six auxiliary hall masters of the Six Great Temples also entered slowly, going up on yesterday’s platform once again.

Han Qian’s mood seemed to have come back to normal. Facing these youths sitting on the lounge, he declared in a deep voice, “Yesterday, the last selection matches finally ended. Although some incidents occurred in the end, strictly speaking, the Demon Hunt Selection Competition went smoothly, and from all Temples, quite a few outstanding youths came out. That’s right, we are very gratified. Now, before the selection ceremony pursues, I have something to announce.”

The competitors naturally knew about what he was going to declare, but all of them were still listening with extreme attention.

Han Qian announced, “In view of the situation that appeared yesterday, and about the request of the champion Long Haochen, we came to negotiate with the Alliance’s chief and subchiefs and had their approval on the matter. The final decision is that from now onwards, at the end of the Demon Hunt Selection, each of the competitors who will enter the top three will have the possibility of renouncing the reward to choose another person to add to their own Demon Hunt Squad. However, among the two selected people, one cannot be in the top 16.”

After this speech, numerous comments sounded from the lounge. So much so that Long Haochen could hear what some female competitors were saying, “If someone is willing to renounce his spiritual stove for me, I am willing to marry him.”

Turning around and looking at Cai’er, who had put on a clean veil, Long Haochen faintly smiled. Compared to Cai’er, what can a spiritual stove be regarded as?

Han Qian said, “If no one has any objections, our selection ceremony may start anew. Long Haochen, Yang Wenzhao, Mu Ning, come on stage. The others are to follow the staff members.”

Long Haochen stood up and advanced with big strides. Having undergone the healing process last night, the other two’s bodies’ conditions were a lot better. The three of them climbed over the terrace once again, standing in front of Han Qian and the other auxiliary hall masters.

Han Qian’s look swept past the three people before finally stopping on Long Haochen’s body.

“Long Haochen, I will ask you once again. Are you still insisting on your choice from yesterday to renounce the reward of a spiritual stove?”

Long Haochen nodded without the slightest hesitation, “Yes. My choices are, as before, Cai’er and Lin Xin.”

Han Qian nodded and said, “Good. Cai’er, Lin Xin, step forward. Are you willing to become part of Long Haochen’s squad?”

“I am willing.” Lin Xin and Cai’er gave the same reply almost simultaneously.

Under the guidance of the staff members, Cai’er and Lin Xin advanced to the platform, the two of them standing next to the first seat.

Han Qian turned to look at Yang Wenzhao: “Second ranked of the individual competition, Yang Wenzhao, you may make your choice too.”

Yang Wenzhao’s gaze swept past the competitors before finally stopping on a comparatively small figure. Without hesitation, he said, “The partner I choose is Chen Ying’er from the Spiritual Temple!”

Gasps of astonishment suddenly rose and fell in succession from underneath. Even the auxiliary hall masters looked quite puzzled; only Han Qian had the look of someone who understood clearly the situation.

A lot of people thought, What the hell is up with those two guys from the Knight Temple? Who’s this Chen Ying’er? At least, she’s absolutely not part of the top 16. Such a precious choice of this Starlight Unicorn knight was actually directed toward choosing someone outside of the top 16. And from the name of this person, it was, furthermore, a girl. Could it be that the Knight Temple was just full of affectionate feelings?

Han Qian looked at this petite Chen Ying’er and asked her, “Chen Ying’er, are you willing to become a member of Yang Wenzhao’s squad?”

Chen Ying’er gave a glance to Yang Wenzhao, standing on stage, before turning her head with an overdone movement, and using a somewhat tapering voice to reply, I am not willing!”

Badoum.

The whole stadium went in uproar once again.

The Six Great Temples’ auxiliary head masters’ faces became an exceedingly fabulous sight to behold. Is this child actually specialized in picking quarrels? Among their looks, the one that looked the most ugly was that of Sanshui who, filled with anger, said nothing further.

Han Qian’s face slightly sunk down, as he asked, “Chen Ying’er, are you sure of this?”

Without the slightest hesitation, Chen Ying’er replied, “I am sure of it. Who wants to be in the same Demon Hunt Squad as this guy?”

From their looks, a lot of female competitors were extremely jealous and puzzled. For this year’s competition, although Long Haochen ended as the champion, the most attractive to the female competitors was Yang Wenzhao.

First, it was a question of age: although Long Haochen was outstanding and even more handsome, he looked too young. To these girls, whose ages were around twenty years old, there were basically no thoughts of this kind. Then, it was also because of his relationship with Cai’er.

Wasn’t she sticking to him like glue, sharing mutual feelings? Who else could possibly stand a chance?

But Yang Wenzhao wasn’t the same: not only did he have a fitting age, but furthermore, he had formidable strength in addition to the beautiful mount known as Starlight Unicorn. It could be said that the overwhelming majority of the female competitors thought of him as the ideal male partner. But at that moment, they heard him say his choice was Chen Ying’er. Clearly, his reasons were not about fighting strength.

Han Qian looked at Yang Wenzhao, and declared, “Chen Ying’er is not willing to enter your squad, you may choose once again.”

Yang Wenzhao’s look became extremely gloomy, Ying’er, ah, Ying’er, is this a joke?! But what could he do if Chen Ying’er was not willing to accept him? Even if he chose to do the same as Long Haochen, he would still need that girl’s approval.

Secretly sighing to himself, he hesitated for a moment before declaring, “I choose Huang Yi from the Mage Temple.”

Han Qian nodded, before declaring, “Huang Yi, are you willing to become a member of Yang Wenzhao’s team?”

Standing at the first row, Huang Yi replied without the slightest hesitation, “I am willing.” Although Yang Wenzhao was a Retribution Knight, not a Guardian Knight, his strength was something everyone clearly saw. And in his capacity as an earth system mage, Huang Yi was an expert in defense, so they naturally brought out the best of each other; why would he not be willing?

Lastly, Han Qian’s look fell on Mu Ning’s body, “Third ranked of the individual competition, Mu Ning, your choice is?”

Mu Ning almost blurted out his reply, “I choose Duan Yi from the Knight Temple, and I am willing to give him the position of squad leader.”

This decision was something he had already planned out yesterday. The ones above him, Long Haochen and Yang Wenzhao, were both knights and he naturally wanted to choose one to join his squad. If one was to ask who was the luckiest of this competition, without the slightest doubt, he would be the chosen one.

Duan Yi’s strength was in no way inferior to Long Haochen and Yang Wenzhao. A formidable strength; atop of the fact that he is a Guardian Knight, he also possessed a Golden Horned Mammoth as a mount. It would naturally be the most fitting choice if Duan Yi could join his team. As a result, to obtain Duan Yi’s approval, Mu Ning went as far as to directly choose to renounce the position of squad leader. In terms of strength, he could naturally not compare to Duan Yi; plus, this third place was something he got by chance. Everything was for the sake of paving a route for the success of his future Demon Hunt Squad.

To this smart choice, Han Qian couldn’t help but open his jaw in praise. His look directed toward Duan Yi, who was standing in the first row below, asking, “Duan Yi, are you willing?”

Duan Yi looked at Mu Ning, and Mu Ning also looked at him, his eyes looking full of sincerity.

“I am willing.” Although he didn’t get into the top three, to be chosen was also an honor, let alone the fact that the other party was willing to hand the position of squad leader to him.

Beside obtaining the first three positions, the best benefits of the top three competitors was naturally to be able to choose members for their own squad. Naturally, luck would still remain a key factor.

Having completed the selection ceremony, the roulette was going to be spun next, and each of the competitors had expressions filled with expectation and excitement.

Everyone hoped to become part of one of the top three teams. The more powerful the members of one’s team was, the safer they would be. And the ones that held the most attention was Long Haochen, followed by Mu Ning and Duan Yi belonging to the third squad, and then the last one, Yang Wenzhao.

    Toto! Thanks! But i Think the chapter is missing the last part…

    • fixed thanks, it was because of a misplaced ‘<' that hid it (html fault).

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • Captain Facts

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • Frenzy85

    It seems really weird that a squad can only have one person from each temple…

    Some temples have 2 styles of fighters, meaning two people from the same temple may not be able to fill the same role in a team. A simple example: a combination of Retribution Knight + Berserker is probably going to be less effective than Retribution + Shield.

    Food for thought?

    • Hello Kalp

      No thanks. I’m not yet hungry. Xb

    • The Dragon King

      6 temples : 5 team members. It’s to keep balance within the squad and maintain the alliance.

      • asd

        i think u mean 6 team members

    • Zen

      That’s why the leaders need to choose properly I guess

      Like in the case of Yang Wenzhao chosing the earth mage because he knows that as a retribution knight he needs more defensive team members – which the earth mage covers.

      If the team leader chooses badly and ends up with a bad composition, then they will likely be destroyed.. Sad, but that’s life in the xianxia world

    Lol Yang Wenzhao

  • Rain

    Thanks for the chapter!! Curious about his future teammates owo!!

    • sbag

      I’m thinking he gets the warrior priest with the staff, Chen Ying-er from spiritual temple (even though I’d rather he get the plant user), and the warrior with the divine shield. Going by story these are the three with the closes connection to him.

    • The Dragon King

      Since Lin Xin is confirmed on his team in order to balance it out he would have to get the cool priest that can only attack.

    thank you very much for the chapter. so was it love at first summon for yang wenzhao

  • Choiza

    Kinda annoying that they keep shooting down Lin Xin like he forced Long Hao Chen to unwillingly choose him. They made a deal with mutual benefits although it seems like Lin Xin benefited more since nobody seems to want a mage with defense magic and high control ability that’s probably good for utility.

    LHC didn’t give up the spiritual stove for him, he gave it up for the girl. He didn’t even know of Cai er until after the deal and didn’t even know she was in the tournament until they were halfway done. Additionally, LHC most likely wouldn’t have won or even gotten to the top 3 if he didn’t have those pills to breakthrough to the fifth step. Those pills even helped him endure to safely protect Hao Yue during his evolution.

    He’s not my fave character but it seemed unfair how the author portrayed him as a leecher who’s benefactor is LHC. Lin Xin’s pills were expensive (half his wealth and he’s filthy rich) and helped with training and life-saving. Also, readers in previous chapters were pissed at him for potentially cockblocking LHC lmao

    • Choiza

      Oh and thanks for the chapter

    • The Dragon King

      No what they r saying is that Lin Xin kinda tricked him. I can’t remember correctly but I’m pretty sure he didn’t state that he couldn’t attack at all and it caused further complications. Also while the pills did he help with cai er help he wouldn’t have been able to make it all (cuz he’d be in Cai er place) and without the pills I think he probably could have Made it into at least top 3 I mean his mount leveling up also influenced it a great deal and he is the scion of light at fourteen fourth step – 5th with spiritual stove and after he got blue hiscubuss it seems like he didn’t really need those pills and probably could have got there a bit later without them. Though I guess the did help him in that other world and if it makes u feel any better LCH seems to agree with you.

      Personally I side with li xin here and if he was half the guy LCH was (which I know is asking a lot) he would have taken the chance to say he is unwilling so LCH could get his rare spiritual stove and keep his girl. In my book that would make him like one of the best friends ever and boost my respect he’s be like “The Man”.

      • Moissonneur66

        Without the pills he would have died protecting Hao Yue and by extension Hao Yue himself would’ve died. As such LHC is quite thankful to Lin Xin for the pills. I believe LHC will tell Cai’er and possibly Lin Xin about the fact that those pills really did save his and Hao Yue’s life, also remember that he was willing to give up the position in favour of cai’er when he understood the situation but such a thing would go completely against LHC’s character.

        • The Dragon King

          I stated that if u read my response. I don’t think he would have died without the pills though, a lot more np injured sure but not dead. He had the holy mantle was a guardian so was made with endurance and had some healing spells plus he was retribution too and could dish out a lot of damage and he had a super advantage becuase of the light attribute.

          • BigBroHasADream

            So what if he had holy mantle and a lot of supporting skills and dps. LHC was up against an army that could if kept respawning, a giant, and a lich. Also had to protect Hao Yue. During the fight he lost the majority of his gear and had to use pills to recover his energy. His energy is not infinite, so he can’t always use his skills. There is also the environment to think about. Also the item he got from his master could only be used a few times per day if I remember right. Also the dragon stone was bought by the other older sister. By the way Lin Xin didn’t buy anything for LHC, only struck a deal. Even if Lin Xin can’t attack his defense is solid.

            Lets say LHC did not use the pills. His energy/rank would be lower. When he had to protect Hao Yue. He’s most likely going to have severe injuries during the fight , his gear destroyed, and then dying. Especially when those much stronger villans arrived. Although, LHC had an advantage in elements it wouldn’t matter as the lich can summon more skeletons to deplete his energy and to keep him away from Hao Yue.

            Without the pills to increase his rank/energy and to recover some energy during the fight, we would of had a bad ending. Btw the giant skeleton could of demolished LHC.

            Also guys don’t forget whose the author it wouldn’t be surprising if LHC and Cai Er became more intimate.

            Li Xin should remember that big bro has drugs and is a alchemist. So he wouldn’t need to use energy to help others heal and with a priest that can heal would definitely be better than baldy, unless he can heal.

            As a side note. I see the author having LHC renounce his spiritual stove is in order to not have LHC become too powerful yet. After all there are a load of chapters left.

      • Iric Alexis

        LHC him self not trying to uncover Lin Xin reason to make that deal.. he just make it to try to get the ball for his pet at first.. (yeah got interrupted) then the pill comes in the deal, so i found no fault in lin xin, and honestly got annoyed to how the story keep blaming him.
        btw, li xin is LHC so called big sister and she hate Lin xin due that bet

        • The Dragon King

          Becuase of the bet it caused later complications. Look at it from Li Xin point of view. Her lil bro had to lose his spiritual stove to get Cai er on his team for a wizard that can’t attack becuase of a deal he made in which said wiz didn’t mention he couldn’t attack and he return he got 3 bottles of pills and a rock which could never compare to a spiritual stove nor cai er.

          • Iric Alexis

            ??? have u seen a contract for deal? anything u want to know about the contract u have to make sure know it before u sign in. if u already agree.. no pulling back. the result happen not because the contract to lin xin but because LHC desire it and LHC made another promise to another person. and to LHC point of view.. without the pill from lin xin, he have low chance to succeed helping his pet evo = he is dead there = no winner and no spiritual stove. not to mention that pill helping him to lvl 5 and got blue rain… spiritual stove is gone because cai’er not lin xin. LHC himself making 2 promise not lin xin.. magician who cannot atk still proven have some solid defense and he have a pill 😛

          • Zen

            In my opinion the rock more than made up for the spiritual stove. It was what allowed his mount to evolve

      • Choiza

        Not denying he tricked him in the deal. Li Xin did warn him that he got tricked so he could have chose to return the pills without using them to back out of the deal. Lin Xin isn’t completely useless, he pretty much just takes over the position of shield warrior. He never knew Lin Xin’s position of being a weak or strong mage in the first place so it was already a gamble despite not knowing he couldn’t attack.

        You mentioned his mount influenced a great deal in him getting to the top. You might have forgotten that LHC had to protect Hao Yue during his evolution in a world with no light essence against an army. He had a hard time fending them off even with the pills that let him recover his spent light essence. Basically, without the pills he would have ran out of light essence weakening him and being unable to damage the dark attribute army. This means he would have died along with Hao Yue or abandon Hao Yue to death. No more Hao Yue means he wouldn’t get anywhere close to the top 3, maybe top 16 but that’s still questionable since he might not have advanced to fifth step on time without the pills.

        Lin Xin did put his life on the line to shoulder the blame LHC got when he was being threatened by a 9th step assassin by explaining when LHC did what he did and said he would give up the position. Anyways, LHC decided he would take both and it’d be dumb of Lin Xin to look a gift horse in the mouth although it’s a proper trade.

        Also, don’t forget that the deal LHC had was only applicable if he got to the top 3. Meaning if Cai er was in the top 3 and he got chosen then LHC would’ve gotten the benefit of free pills without any further obligations to Lin Xin. If LHC wanted to be sneaky then he could have told Cai er beforehand but he didn’t plan ahead. Lin Xin is a pretty powerful mage and an alchemist. We don’t know why he doesn’t have attack magic at the moment so it’s a possibility he’ll gain some later but even without that he can defend. He’ll be able to refine higher level pills that will probably advance training for LHC and the rest of the team or be life-saving like mp potions (for w/e element they have) or poison dispel etc which may be more beneficial than the spiritual stove since LHC can always find a spiritual stove later but would he be able to have an alchemist who is rather skilled at his beck and call later on? His dad has a divine throne; i’m sure he can figure out how to get spiritual stoves easier in the future and the knight temple wants to cultivate him so they might give him a freebie later behind closed doors. I have no preference to Cai er or Lin Xin so it’s first come first served so really he’s sacrificing the spiritual stove not for Lin Xin but for Cai er.

        Lin Xin was ready to sacrifice his spot and possibly life to save LHC’s life from the enraged assassin so that shows he has good principles as well. There’s no reason for him to give up his spot when LHC is fine with taking the both of them. Good companions can be harder to find then items and more beneficial as well. Aside from all that I would’ve preferred if he met Cai er when they’re adults or be in different squads since i’m not really into seeing 13? yr old kids love story lol. Sure it’s sweet and all but awkward at the same time. Hope the author doesn’t forget that they’re still kids if he decides to describe them getting more intimate in the future…

        • The Dragon King

          First of all they 14 and they met as kids makes sense that they’d meet in the one tournament for all temples.

          Second I understand and won’t deny what u said its true Lin Xin did try to kinda get out of it and I’m not saying that wasn’t amazing for him to do that but if he really really really had regretted what he had done enough not to want to be on LCH team, becuase of the problems he caused he would’ve taken the only chance to allow LCH to have a spiritual stove.

          Third if I remember correctly his father wants him to be almost totally self dependent and the last things he gave him were the last freebes so he wouldn’t use his power to give him free spiritual stoves, this competition was probably his best chance to get one aside form finding one himself.

          Fourth I realize the pills were a great deal of help but he probably could have succeeded without them just with more injuries and more in the nick of time. He had the holy mantle, guardian endurance, guardian healing, and retribution strength combined with a super effective attribute advantage.

          • Choiza

            13 had a question mark after it and 14 isn’t that different lol. It’s still tween love which isn’t a priority for me to read in an action story. I can’t do anything about it since i’m not the author so w/e. Just hope the author doesn’t forget they’re that young if he suddenly decides for them to have sex or something along those lines.

            Honestly, there’s nothing for Lin Xin to regret. He should only regret it because the assassins were unreasonable trying to kill LHC for not choosing Cai er. He never said he would choose Cai er. All there was is a vague promise to protect her before he even knew she was a capable assassin. They both took a gamble with the deal. LHC has no idea what capabilities Lin Xin has other than refining pills. Lin Xin doesn’t know if LHC would be in the top 3 of enter demon hunt squad under that so he can lose half his wealth for nothing. They’re both looking out for their own benefits. LHC gets drugs to boost his early training and enhance his chances of getting a high ranking and some power boost pills and mp potions for emergencies. Lin Xin is hoping for a powerful companion in the demon hunt squad. Lin Xin isn’t LHC relative or childhood friend so he shouldn’t really care about LHC benefits unless they’re companions and that only happens if he’s in his demon hunt squad.

            Sure his father won’t help him by giving freebies although I wouldn’t scratch out that he may provide information on possible locations or ways to procure spiritual stoves since LHC would still have to work to get it. Also, the knight temple wants to develop LHC so he will get more opportunities. They did lead him towards the Hibiscus sword since they saw his potential. I don’t think everyone is given the opportunity to get it.

            It’s hard to believe LHC would have made it out of that world without either him or hao yue dying if he didn’t have the pills objectively without plot armor. He barely made it out with the pills and he lost his strongest sword at the time. The world has no light essence so he can’t regain his expended light essence without the pills. He needs to use light essence constantly to keep the dark essence from weakening him or maybe killing him. There’s a horde of enemies charging at him overflowing which can only be dealt with by using his skills that consume his light essence to even damage them. There’s a lich and his hugeass summoning that was somewhat kicking his ass or pressuring him majorly. Hao Yue evolved just in time for them to get out of there pronto. This only happened because LHC was able to substain himself with pills. LHC consumed many pills to keep his light essence filled and fought for hours. Remember, LHC fighting in matches at max one hour (generous estimate, the matches actually seem like 10 mins) used up most if not all his light essence without pills. In matches they aren’t trying to kill him but in the other world they wanted his death so yeah….

            Sure love is important, he was already determined to be strong to meet his parents again and protect them. Cai er is just another person to love which increases his options of people to protect. He’ll also come to love his companions and want to protect them as well. I’m sure through this experience LHC and Lin Xin will be greater buddies and have more loyalty to each other than a random roulette companion. Again, Lin Xin may be famous but there’s absolutely no reason for him to help LHC if he isn’t his companion in the demon hunt squad since they don’t have a familial relationship or bff thing going on. Put yourself in Lin Xin’s shoes. Would you help a stranger out who you were about to team up with but didn’t losing your investment of half your wealth? All because that person wanted to team up with someone else?

            I’m not sure of this worlds system but in many other stories I’ve read. Healing magic is ineffective with certain ailments and poisons that only medicine pills can cure. It’s very doubtful that Lin Xin’s city would send him as a representative if he was only an alchemist so he should be skillful with defense magic. What’s better than healing? Not getting hurt in the first place. It’s not determined that he can never attack so there’s still potential.

            The author appears to be determined that those are the new teammates judging by how they got proper introductions compared to the assassin guy who is just known for getting lucky. As for the spiritual stoves, it’s pretty much a given that plot is gonna give him many opportunities in getting rare or powerful stoves. He did get the ultimate legendary sword after all.

            Last comment, I really hope the author doesn’t go to far with the romance until they’re at a decent age haha. Sometimes I see stories where the authors completely forget the mc is still a kid.

            Agreed, and in the first place, he wouldn’t have the stone if he didn’t make the deal with Lin Xin

            No stone = No fight in the dark world = No Hao Yue evolve which may = No top 3

          • asdasd

            the spiritual stove not that important since Cai’er wasn’t in top3 and could come next time to get him one

          • Zen

            sometimes in losing you gain more

        • Zen

          I agree with you

        • Sedar Ordek

          Dont forget lin xin paid for the orb that granted hao yues evolution right? Or was it some1 elsr I cant remember

  • Kurei Kurenai

    btw love it more now that u have installed disqus here too

  • Azuka

    Rejected. Rejected. Yeah you just got rejected. R-E J-E C-T E-D.

    Lol, anyways thanks for the chapter.

    • The Dragon King

  • The Dragon King

    Okay so we got a Yandre, Trap, onee chan, and now a tsundere, did I miss anyone?

    Edit: oh and a badass

  • Iric Alexis

    somehow i like Mu Ning character more rather than all plot make him flawless LHC

  • okay.. i have same view like you otok.. i think he’s a l*l*c*n too lol thanks for the chapter >3<

    • malik7263

      What does l*l*c*n mean ?!

      • Luke Confidential

        Lolicon aka he’s into little girls

        • malik7263

          Wayy to many stars !

  • i think he will get the full off bald prist and shield worrior (double troll one should heal and the other protect) also the random summoner (maby a kity maby a dragon) plus the full def mage (usually an ADC neh) and two monsters with over 90 spirit (specially caier)
    this squad will shake the world

    • yep and this is the final team

  • Zeth

    Thank you so much Totobro!

  • QWERTY

    I think ultimate leecher in the story is Hao Yue. He is saved two times by LHC and very risky ones too.. Moreover LHC still spends all his money to feed him. Still Hao Yue didnt do much except what ordinary mounts do.. Altough we will most likely see very overpowered Hao Yue in the late chapters:)

    • Luke Confidential

      If you think Hao Yue eats a ton imagine the feedbill for that Fire/Earth Mammoth belonging to the knight that surrendered to Yang Wenzhao.

      • QWERTY

        Hahaha.. yeah you are right:D

      • rawrrrrrrr

        wrong Hao Yue is staying in LHC world the others go back to their respective places…

  • rawrrrrrrr

    who needs defense right?

  • AnimeLoverC

    I’m kinda still hoping that Haochen gets all the misfits. A priest who cant heal, a summoner whos all over the place, a mage who cant attack, a blind assassin and himself, whos a two in one knight. Am I missing anyone?

    • Voidom

      The shield girl as warrior.

    • Rafael Moura

      The post is old but…
      Don’t forget that LHC is also a misfit he is the scion of light that has a blood pact with the devil.

      • AnimeLoverC

        Exactly. So a team of misfits. Its perfect…If you dont sweat the details

  • KenKen

    Chen Ying’er publicly rejected Yang Wenzhao HAHAHA HA Oh boy, I felt bad for the guy he keep losing face in this competition. Tho I do wonder what is actually going on between them…it seem like they do know each other tho.
