Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 244


Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 244: Eternal Melody(I)

“What?” Long Haochen cried out in complete surprise, his head completely turning blank in that instant.

Sacred necromancer? Can it be that this Slumbering Calamity Elux’s so called saint undead magic isn’t mere necromancy, but that this word saint actually refers to the holy element, standing as the appellation for holy light?

So it turns out, necromancer could actually also be of light attribute. But how can that be? Shouldn’t necromancer be making use of corpses and death, walking through an evil path of darkness?

It could be said that Elux’s last sentence shook Long Haochen extremely hard. It forced him to re-evaluate many things.

An ash-gray radiance appeared again, but this time, it just had the shape of a little ball, quietly appearing in front of Long Haochen, and floating in the air.

It was a necklace, with white gems on it, the size of soybeans. On it, faint fluorescent light spread, and its soft holy aura gave off a very deep warmth. The deathly aura originally contained in the air, seemed to turn into holy light immediately as it appeared. A rich and thick holy essence immediately passed through Long Haochen’s Saint Spiritual Stove, replenishing his previous consumption of spiritual energy.

On the necklace was a little pendant, roughly the size of a little thumb, and white in color. It had the appearance of a little skull, and on the position of the two eyes hovered golden flames filled with thick light essence and spreading around.

“My dear disciple, this is my message. It’s fortunate that you aren’t one of these filthy darkness attribute necromancers, otherwise, I could only have given up on you. This necklace followed me over 896 years, until the last instant I entered the deep slumber. Oh, you have to keep in mind, that you cannot let it be seen by those people from the Radiant Church, because it is made from the skull of first Supreme Pontiff of the Radiant Church’s. Hehe, I feel extremely excited imagining the face those bastards would show if they knew that I dug out their first Supreme Pontiff’s buried corpse to make it. This pendant’s name is ‘Eternal Melody’, and it is my heritage, as well as the key to this Manor of Eternal Rest.

If in the future, you are to find undoubtedly trustworthy companions, you can lead them to be trained there. Of course, this is on the premise that they aren’t users of the filthy darkness attribute I loathe the most. If you bring wicked existence to this place, this Manor of Eternal Rest will be sure to give them their eternal rest. From now onwards, you are my successor, and the new master of the Manor of Eternal Rest.

Long Haochen basically didn’t have the ability to refuse. From the direction of this speaking voice, a extremely warm light essence approached and was instantly poured in his body as that Pendant of Eternal Melody appeared on his neck, and the transparent skull went in front of his chest.

Immediately, Long Haochen felt as if his entire body became warm, just as if soaked in warm water, and his entire body took on a lustrous golden color, just as if it reached the ultimate level of holy light. The dense light essence filled every corner of his body with that wet sensation.

Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light, the Saint Spiritual Stove and also the Light Elemental Spiritual Stove Yating let out moans of happiness from the insides of his chest. His quantity of liquid internal spiritual energy visibly rose at lightning speed, only slowing down after raising of at least five hundred units. And that skull shaped pendant filled with sacred aura was tightly absorbed in Long Haochen’s chest.

“Step forward, child. From now onwards, everything shall depend on yourself. Even without passing any test, you may also leave that place. I am looking forward to the day you will be able to stand in front of me.”

After this last sentence, the voice of the Slumbering Calamity Elux thoroughly dissipated, and the surrounding were as before filled with an ash grey deathly aura. But after wearing the Eternal Melody, Long Haochen was just like the sun in that place; from his body permanently released a golden radiance, and what was even more fantastic was that this holy light seemed to harmonize perfectly with the deathly aura in that place, not conflicting in the slightest.

The gate behind Long Haochen’s back opened quietly, implying that he didn’t have the need to pass any test, and would be able to leave that place at any time. But at this moment, he stood there without moving, because of the great amount of information that just entered his head, becoming part of his memories. And this information came precisely from the Eternal Melody.

These informations included the control of the Manor of Eternal Rest, the seal contained in this Pendant of Eternal Rest, and even the knowledge and the cultivation method gathered by the Slumbering Calamity Elux. This part of the message was truly massive and important, and no matter how unwilling Long Haochen was to become a Holy Necromancer, these informations still became complete part of his memory, which he would never be able to forget in his life.

Haoyue crawled behind Long Haochen’s back, calmly looking at him, as his six eyes were filled with gentleness, occasionally giving off a deep glance to the hall, seemingly letting out a nostalgic look, though he seemed rather to be at a loss when recalling these memories.

Standing there, Long Haochen took half an hour before coming back to his senses. After this massive amount of information was stored in Long Haochen’s head, the current Long Haochen’s complexion was clearly not looking good.

Even though the Slumbering Calamity Elux was a necromancer of holy attribute, he was still a necromancer, one of the main cause of the disaster that happened ten thousand years ago. How could Long Haochen be willing to become the successor of such a person, much less to learn any necromancy magic.

Suddenly turning back, Long Haochen looked at Haoyue with burning eyes, “Haoyue, you knew in advance what this place was, am I right?”

Long Haochen was somewhat angry: if Haoyue told him about this place in advance, he wouldn’t have entered there no matter what. Despite the enormous progress and increase in strength this Manor of Eternal Rest brought him, he was truly unwilling to accept this. After having put this Eternal Melody on, he was completely unable to take it off.

“Wuu wuu…” Haoyue gave off an innocent look, blinking his eyes and transmitting an answer to Long Haochen.

Sensing the information coming from him, Long Haochen’s complexion changed, from the previous state of anger to a surprised state.

“Prediction Technique? You innate ability?” Giving Haoyue a stupefied look, Long Haochen looked completely dumbstruck.

Haoyue told him that he had an ability called Prediction Technique, which enabled him to predict some future events to some extent. When he entered this cave, a prophecy would have come to him, but he only have an indistinct feeling, just sensing that this place was only symbol of a perfect opportunity for Long Haochen, devoid of any danger, which is why he told him to enter.

Revealing a bitter smile, Long Haochen advanced to the front of Haoyue. Hugging Little Light’s huge head, he declared, “Sorry, it’s my bad. I shouldn’t have doubted you. It’s only that everything that just happened to me was way too shocking. I’ve been made the successor of this necromancer in such an unexplainable way, this is just too…”

Little Light, Little Flame and Little Green snuggled up to him, gently stroking his body.

“Haoyue, tell me what I should do? How about we leave this place and treat it as though nothing happened? Anyway, after we leave, this Tower of Eternity will enter in a parallel dimension.”

Haoyue slowly shook his heads in response.

Long Haochen asked with some hesitation, “Are you saying that this is an opportunity, that I shouldn’t necessarily become a necromancer but can still gain some good experience in that place?”

Haoyue nodded in repetition.

Long Haochen wrinkled his brows, sinking in contemplation. It could be said that he was in a state of extreme struggle: the shock this Tower of Eternity brought him was huge, and it was in particular the case for these necromancy spells that were now sealed in his head. No matter how unwilling he was, he couldn’t get rid of these memories. The Eternal Melody on his neck also had in the end some important benefits.

Long Haochen had never been an avaricious character. On the opposite, he would always pay back the kind deeds of others tenfold. Even if he was even more unwilling, he couldn’t deny that he had indeed gotten important benefits from this Slumbering Calamity called Elux. The fact that he was completely unable to discard these benefits was the hardest for him to bear.

A short moment later, Long Haochen slowly raised his head, and said with a sigh, “You may be right. But I can’t bring myself to decide, whether I should choose to get some more benefit from this place or ask for my comrades’ opinions on this. Anyhow, we should now try out this place’s trial. It will at least guarantee everyone’s safety, were they to follow me here.”

A hazy golden light shone in Long Haochen’s heart, before falling on Haoyue’s body, immediately making this best partner of his shine in a golden gloss, as Haoyue’s scales appeared to turn golden.

This was the utility of the Eternal Melody. According to the memories that were transmitted to Long Haochen, only spreading this pendant’s aura to someone could define him as one that is not an enemy of the Tower of Eternal Rest.

Making a turn, Long Haochen recovered the Holy Spirit Shield in his hand, summoning Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light from his body.

The next appearance of Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light caused Long Haochen to be astonished in the next instant, because he discovered with a shock that an unexpected change had happened on this most powerful offensive weapon he had.

Its main body was just as before, but the radiance spread from its upper part had changed. Gripping Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light immediately made Long Haochen feel wet, filled with a cozy feeling. On the blade of the sword, a drizzling gloss, or more accurately speaking, a golden fog, seemed to appear. It was faintly discernible, but carried a mixture of a holy and watery aura.

This golden fog filled the surrounding air in a scope of a third of a meter, and when Long Haochen poured his spiritual energy into it, this golden fog would instantly condense, taking the shape of a third of a meter long golden radiance standing in front of the sword.


  • Luke Confidential

    Give it up LHC, destiny is calling your name.

    Resistance is futile.

  • Evilage

    So blue rain became a dual sword? O.O

    • Majk

      Well it was a dual sword at the beginning so it fits.
      Plus now LHC will have to legendery swords when going into Retribution Knight mode insted of one awesome and the other one being just ok.

      • Luke Confidential

        I don’t like how it says he’s totally giving up on the Holy Spirit Set.

        There are going to be times he needs to act as a Guardian Knight.

        • Majk

          Well yeah when fighting in a team he will mostly use Gardian Knight mode since its better suited for helping out the team but when fighting strong enemies he will always use Retribution Knight mode since its just more powerful.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I still like how Asura Ye put it. When you want to attack be a Retribution Knight. When you want to Defend be a Guardian Knight. I think he will still use a shield if he is going on the defensive since as he discovered in endurance battles Guardian Knight far out does Retribution Knight especially if the goal is not to kill the enemy but to hold on. I think what it means by hes abandoning using the full Holy Spirit Set is that he will no longer use the Holy spirit sword with the Shield but will probably use Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light even as a Guardian Knight.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Yeah reading it over carefully again I am not so sure that Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light can actually be separated. It might be that he is defaulting to using Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light in both his guardian and retribution modes instead of the Holy Spirit Sword like before.

          • Robin

            It is said that it is a combination of two swords being forged into one, one of the light essence and one of the water attribute. Since no one was able to wield it since the forging, no one knows exactly what it is able to be. My guess is that he will 1) be able to use them as two swords, if needed. or 2) gain a second sword of equal worth. But I think it will be 1. It would make more sense for him to gain a special shield of some sort later on.
            Maybe it mostly referred to the fact that he won’t ever intentionally use the Holy Spirit Armor Set as a whole to gain the special support of it again, since he no longer is dependent on it. Sometimes, he abstained from using Blue Hibiscus in favor of this special effect, even though the Holy Spirit Sword lacked in comparison. But now with the upgraded Blue Hibiscus that would be a waste.

          • Luke Confidential

            My guess is the reason Blue Rain chose LHC wasn’t his ridiculous Light Affinity [which although freaking ridiculous, is only 10-ish points higher than his father’s who also attempted to tame the sword]

            But rather that his untested Water Affinity is actually on the good side as well.

          • Schattenbach

            Do we actually know if he has another elemental affinity to begin with? As far as I remember, multiple elemental affinities aren’t exactly that common.

            As far as I remember, they usually test for their internal spiritual energy and what elemental attribute they possess, not how high that elemental affinity actually is (as how they excell at using their spiritual energy is primarily based on their internal spiritual energy as well as on what step they’ve reached up until now).

          • Luke Confidential

            He’s a Knight. At the beginning of his training he was tested by his own father, a Divine Knight [the highest rank.]

            There was no logical reason to give him a general elemental affinity test at first as he was assumed to have significant Light Affinity towards the vocation of Knight.

            As far as rare goes… nothing about LHC is normal lol.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            LHC is indeed a rare case. I am not really sure if he does have a second elemental affinity. Doesn’t seem impossible since I think there was a previous example of a human with dual attributes. if I remember correctly the girl Lin Xin fought in his Mage qualifiers first round had fire and wind attribute. If he does have water in him though it seems like he has way less affinity with that than he does with the light considering the water side attacked and tested him and the light was just happy to be near him.

          • Luke Confidential

            Indeed, probably on the order of 1/2 as much affinity to Water as Light [which is about as high as the average Demon Hunt Member is in their primary lol.]

        • Robin

          It was predictable that sooner or later he would switch completely. Remember even elder Han said that the equipment can’t compete with Blue Hibiscus. But he will still use the armor, and maybe even the shield, athough I think in the future he will rather block with two swords than with a shield.

  • Evilage

    Four chapters sponsored? Including the one that was just released its 5 chapters
    thank you totobro and all the sponsors for all your effort

  • Jonathan Hurd

    Well First off Thanks Toto and Sponsers :D. It is so nice to see the next chapter so fast especially in this arch

    Become a Necromancer LHC… You know you want to… Become a Death Knight… Make my dreams come true!

  • Majk

    Now I want to know if the necromancer could have met Hao Yue in a previous life. Not necessarily as Austin Griffin but maybe another one where he was summoned but died before he fully evolved.

    Or would it be possible that the necromancers weren’t erased and instead they went to the world of the demons which is why they were there when HY was evolving and he saw similar structures to this one there?

    • Luke Confidential

      I’m actually wondering if that Necromancer might have BEEN one of his reincarnations.

      According to the undead, he’s had numerous reincarnations before in various worlds. In all likelihood this is the only one with an inkling of his identity [since it was born into his home world]

      • Robin

        Did we really learn that he had several incarnations “in different worlds”? The DGs said that he can’t cross the borders between worlds on his own so I doubt it. He was only able to escape his world before being killed through the contract with Haochen.
        And no, that would not be possible. The reincarnation would need the soul of Austin Griffon and since there is a part of the necromancer’s soul left, and Haoyue has his soul, it would not work.

        • Luke Confidential

          Ah part of his soul is still there. I was thinking it was more of a spell effect/item enchantment than a legitimate lingering spirit.

          • Robin

            When it wants to teach him and accompany him? I don’t think a spell effect would be able to do so.

          • Luke Confidential

            I don’t know for sure about this setting, but in some settings spell effects can do a VERY good job of echoing the intentions/purpose/desires of their caster.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I would say considering this is a necromancer, and such an amazingly powerful one at that, it seems likely that he could grasp control of his own soul even after death or at the very least bind it to something like the tower and that pendant. After rereading through the undead’s talks about Austin Griffin apparently there are 9 incarnations of him and they are desperately trying to kill him each time before he reaches full maturity again. It seems like he always reincarnates in the demons original world. To be fair though as we have already confirmed the ancient humans have a method that allowed them to summon Austin Griffin and that was how he was made LHC’s partner. If humans can do it now, even after losing so much of the old technology, that could mean that this is not the first time Austin Griffin’s reincarnation has been summoned to this world. Maybe Hao Yue is remembering this place from a previous life. Would be pretty funny if this Slumbering Calamity Elux was an old master of Austin Griffin.

          • Schattenbach

            The reason as to why demons fear the that “physiology of chaos” so much might be because it could allow the summoner possessing it to summon Hao Yue …

          • Jonathan Hurd

            You got a point there. I mean considering that the idea he was in their current world struck fear into even the Demon God Emperor and that the current theory I can think of is that the reason the demons are even here is they were escaping Austin Griffin’s destruction of their world…. It makes a lot of sense.

          • Robin

            But to summon him and use the ancient technology, an elder with a special light technique was needed. There was no chaos or darkness or even spatial element involved. And since he was in such a dire situation, don’t you think Haoyue would have used every way to escape his original world where he was endangered to get killed every day?
            And if he would have had the chance to leave his world in a former life, don’t you think he would have survived longer before getting killed? We don’t know how long he can live without being killed prematurely but I assume that it is very long. And he must have died every former generation according to the Lich king. Also, if he would have ever entered the human world before, at least the DGE would know of this danger but the demons were taken by his presence by surprise.

          • Schattenbach

            The “physiology of chaos” allows to eventually use any summoning spell … and even before that, involves random summoning of magical beasts (some of which are quite formadible). Randomly summoning or using some powerful summoning spell and the one they end up summoning the being known as Austin Griffin (who, by himself, apperantly cannot travel between “dimensions”/”worlds”, so someone summoning him or teleportating him is basically the only chance they get)…. if they’re so afraid of him that the strongest demon god (who’s also their commander-in-chief) would go somewhere even just for a 1% probability of Austin Griffin being there, them targeting those summoners who might actually summon him (even if it’s most likely by accident) sounds perfectly reasonable (after all, if they perform thousands – or even several million – of summons over the course of their carrier). Better to not take any chances, after all.

          • Robin

            You have a point. That might explain why they slaughtered people with the physique of chaos as soon as they found them. It is still unclear if they would have been able to really summon him or control him but the danger could suffice to frighten the demons. What Austin Griffon would have done if summoned by someone random without a connection like with Haochen, we can only guess. I think it would have been a dangerous wager for a human summoner to have the “luck” to summon him.

          • Luke Confidential

            Doesn’t the death of a summoner during the summoning spell’s duration send the summon back to whence it came? [I might be conflating this world with others I’ve read.]

            If that’s the case Austin Griffin would have to seal a contract of some sort to stay. Plus he’d need some way of acquiring allies who could guard him during evolution anyway.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            So from what the demons have said we can assume that Austin Griffin has no way to dimension jump on his own so it has to be an outside party. Well considering what we now know of this necromancer that he has the light element there is a chance that he could have the power to work a gate like LHC used. It also seems possible that someone with the body of chaos that Yin Er has could have at one point accidentally summoned him like with her Creature Summoning Gate and he formed a contract like the piggy did so he could stay.

            On his dying so soon well the problem there is that he is always forced to return if he wants to evolve and he is left completely defenseless when he does that. From the way the Litch King talked that is when they plan to strike at him and when he is at his most vulnerable. So even if he can raise his power in LHC’s world like he currently is he still needs someone strong enough to guard him against the foes in his world. One thing we don’t know yet is whether or not Austin Griffin will reincarnate in LHC’s world if he dies there or if the next incarnation would be in the demons world like before. One thing I am really curious about is if Elux knows anything about Austin Griffin. That would be pretty awesome to find out he knew one of Hao Yue’s previous incarnations.

      • Majk

        I dont think so since if that would be true then this guy wouldent be a holy necromancer since HY didnt have a holy element before he made a blood contract with LHC and his soul power is darkness.

        Also I dont think that he is reborn in diffrent forms but is just from a specis of lizards/dragons

  • lordcattank

    thank you very much for the chapter . ha long haochen needs to get a grip or un grip if just holding his own sword makes him wet ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  • VanillaCustardPie

    Thank you~

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • siva

    Awesome simply awesome . But still I don’t want the 4th squad to learn about the eternal tower ….

    • Luke Confidential

      Why?

      • Robin

        Because they proved that you can’t trust them unconditionally. I don’t believe in instant refinement and a complete change of character.

        • Luke Confidential

          I’m trying to figure out why it matters in regards to the tower lol.

          • Robin

            Oh, they will learn about its existence one way or the other. I referred to the fact that they shouldn’t be allowed to enter it and learn the techniques of a necromancer.

          • Luke Confidential

            Ah, yeah they don’t belong inside.

            I doubt there are necromancer techniques to be learned by any except the Light attribute though… I thought Elux’ topic about a team was more general powerups.

          • Robin

            Well, I understood it as such that Haochen can bring his companions he trusts unconditionally into the tower so that they can also learn and participate in the trials.
            And the 4th squad is not suitable for this. Only his own squad and maybe his sister should learn them.

          • Luke Confidential

            Agreed.

          • Robin

            ^__^

          • Jonathan Hurd

            From what Elux was saying it seems his end goal is the revival of the necromantic arts. So what he might be wanting is for LHC to get some disciples of his own bring them into the tower and train them in what Elux is teaching him and therefore renew the necromancy to its former state.

          • siva

            I also want to see the same outcome …

      • siva

        Except li xin those guys can’t be trusted as they were plotting against hao chen in the beginning …

        • Luke Confidential

          Please enlighten me, Siva.

          How might they plot in regards to the tower?

          • siva

            I just don’t want them to learn the art of necromancy .. I wanted the mc to be the only user atleast only his squad … even they had a change of heart .. luc xi and dan xian plotted against him in the beginning

          • Luke Confidential

            True enough. Though really, Luc Xi might be a great deal more suited to Necromantic Magic than LHC lol. They are on the same side afterall, just a bit competetive.

            It would be nice if at least Sima Xian could pick up more utility.

          • siva

            Yea I want to see sima xian have some heavy offensive magic too

          • Luke Confidential

            I was more thinking utility lol. He’s already quite offensive 😛

            Necromantic crowd control would be boss.

          • siva

            Then 21 squad will be perfect … it’s too good to be true

          • Robin

            They will pack a hell of a punch. ^^

          • Luke Confidential

            LHC already hits ridiculously above his weight lol.

            Envision his full power DragonForm in conjunction with Ripples of Light and Blue Rain Hibiscus of Light.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            One thing I want to say about people other than LHC learning necromancy is that there are certain difficulties to using multiple disciplines abilities. For example that was why LHC being a retribution and guardian knight at the same time was so strange was because he has to be able to juggle and invest in both sets of skills. I can imagine it might work for Sima Xian since he can’t really use the majority of priest skills but for others it might be too tall an order.

          • Luke Confidential

            That might be the ticket for making Sima Xian a greater team asset. Right now he seems to sort of be sitting between the Shield Chick and the Loli in terms of general purpose usefulness.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair the Loli took a big jump forward with contracting that Piggy so right now he seems like hes starting to be left behind a little. It is going to be interesting to see what kind of spells a Holy Necro can use and if Sima Xian can and/or will learn them.

          • Luke Confidential

            I said general purpose usefulness.

            When the chips are down the girl has a major card to play for the team, no doubt about that.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Oh I agree, it just feels like Sima Xian doesn’t have something Unique for him to bring yet. I mean Wang YuanYuan has her giant shield and now Yin Er has her piggy. Lin Xin has alchemy and Han Yu has his healing. Cai’er…. is Cai’er and has that Stove of Samsara and LHC…. well hes got more than enough that differentiates him. Sima Xian though is somewhat limited in how he doesn’t have the healing or utility that most priests have. If he can augment that with something more like Lin Xin and his alchemy that would be nice. Who knows maybe he can become LHC’s first Light Necromancer disciple hes already LHC’s Retainer Knight.

    • Schattenbach

      Yeah … some of them are way too untrustworthy, I guess.

  • kooG

    history is never 100%.. it could be falsified or doctored.. you dont know what happened all those years ago.. only the winners are able to tell what happened according to their accounts.. an attribute doesnt specify it they are evil or not.. this idiot shouldnt believe everything.. and even if the practice was used for evil you could still use it for good

    • Jonathan Hurd

      To be fair he is only 15 years old and a very diligent and respectful kid. Its not surprising that he hasn’t learned to doubt what his elders have told him. The truth is that the Radiant Church and the Necro’s fought and this weakened the humans. What we do not really know is why they fought though. That might cast things in a different light.

      • Robin

        When the church tried to control all or at least most of the powerhouses of that time, it is most likely that there were unbridgeable conflicts. I can’t imagine that the necromancers would have liked to be controled. And seeing that said necromancer Elux dug out the skull of the first Supreme Pontiff to create the necklace, there must have been a lot of serious conflicts and different opinions between both fractions.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          I really want to hear Elux’s side of the story. He has repeatedly called the Church hypocrites and I would like to know what he means by that. It could be in their portrayal of Necromancers or how the church acted itself. It seems him digging up the first Supreme Pontiff’s head was his way at getting back at them. Considering Elux said he had a thousand years of experience and that he has had that head for 896 years he probably did the deed when he was around a 104 years old. Looks like the feud between the two sides has gone on a long time then.

    • Schattenbach

      Well … his father is being said to be overly dogmatic … so I guess that rubbed of to some degree onto his son during the period of his training.

  • ShelfCloud

    Ok, now Haochen is reeeaaally close to becoming a Radiant Knight. He had about 3200 spiritual energy after he fused with Yating, gained at least 100 units after the big battle and now 500 units were added. Not counting what he gained in the time between these events, which should also not be little progess considering his cultivation speed, he should definitely have more than 3800. Adding the necessary insight he already gained before I guess we will see Radiant Knight Haochen pretty soon.

    And now I am thinking that Cai’er has to find a way to keep up. I do not think the author will let there be too wide a gap between their powers.

    • siva

      When they successfully complete the mission tgey would get a reward of 140k points so they’ll buy that pill that increases spirit energy by 1000

      • ShelfCloud

        Yes, that is true. And I really hope that they will do this. At this point of their cultivation this would be a great and very effective investment. It is just that Haochen could also use one after becoming a Radiant Knight so it will not really help to close a gap.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Also considering he can now train in this tower which seems perfectly suited for him his spiritual energy gains will be enormous. Might also be helpful for the others to train there especially Sima Xian and Han Yu.

          • ShelfCloud

            It would be great to see the others training there as well. Their team would one day become to unbalanced if Haochen gets further and further away. The problem is just that this tower is located so far in the demon territory and before they can train there they always have to cross a very long distance.

          • Luke Confidential

            As if their team isn’t already unbalanced =P

            But it could indeed become far worse.

            EDIT: seriously though, LHC’s freaking MOUNT is stronger than anybody else in the team with the possible exception of LHC alone or Cai Er.

            [By strength of course I mean total combat prowess. In close quarters without magical support he would most likely lose to the warrior chick with all three gems inserted, but that’s a totally contrived and unrealistic scenario]

          • Robin

            I wouldn’t be so sure about him losing against the shield warrior. Read the next chap and it will open your eyes for his real strength. I would say he is almost the most powerful of the teams. ^^°

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair they mentioned in the first time he fought her that he had more external spiritual energy than she did. The reason she was able to fight on par with him was her shield. That was also before Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light started nurturing his strength and some inevitable strengthening when Hao Yue Evolves again.

          • Robin

            I was referring to Haoyue. 😀

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I can imagine Hao Yue beating almost anyone as long as he gets to use his elemental disorder. Even excluding that considering he can just keep sniping at you and running away I think the only one on their team that could handle him would be Cai’er. I wouldn’t include LHC since Hao Yue would never let him close.

          • Luke Confidential

            I have read the next chapter. That was still involving magic.

            Hence my comment in a raw brawl he would probably lose to her, but as I said, it’s not a realistic scenario whatsoever.

          • Robin

            Maybe not, but a funny one.

          • Luke Confidential

            Yeah, it would be entertaining to see Hao Yue forced to fight in a Null Magic Zone, where all he has is his claws, tail and three sets of jaws.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Well we are not sure right now if they will have to go to the physical entrance of the tower to get in anymore. From what LHC said when he leaves the tower it will enter a parallel dimension. Since LHC has the key he might be able to open a gateway to the tower to access it from other positions.

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • Zeth

    Thank you very much Totobro and sponsors!

  • Anto Wibowo

    Thank you for the chapter!

  • Rhiannon Sturtevant

    hAOCHEEEEEENNN!!!!! Why are you being so narrow-minded about necromancy? Elux has already said that darkness attribute necromancer are the bad ones! Why can’t you accept that your history may be mistaken, and learning necromancy would actually be a good idea for not only you, but quite possibly the ENTIRE Temple Alliance! I mean, come on, an entire new temple could be formed from this. Humans would gain yet more skills to fight against the demons! That’d be a good thing wouldn’t it?

    • Jonathan Hurd

      That would be freaking bad ass to have the seventh temple be necromancers. Considering the current plight of humanity beggars can’t be choosers where they look for power.

      • Luke Confidential

        I question how much value a 7th temple would bring to the Alliance. There are already two separate temples sucking up those with affinity to the Light Element. Adding a new vocation isn’t going to suddenly create more people with potential.

        Necromancy may better serve the alliance as supplements for Priests, Knights and Light-Affinity Mages.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Well considering necro’s can summon skeleton’s they could be a replacement or supplement to summoners. It would work even better than summoners for throw away meat shields because you wouldn’t care about the skeleton’s deaths and friendly firing them. Also being able to summon skeletons with limitless stamina as fighting power to help deal with the waves of cannon fodder the demons send could massively reduce deaths in the lower ranks and make up for the numbers difference between humans and demons.

          • Luke Confidential

            We don’t actually know that skeletons have limitless stamina. It seems plausible that their time animated might consume the limited Spiritual Energy resources that were put into their creation.

            One thing that IS plausible, is that Skeletons likely self-heal their own bodies from that Spiritual Energy reserve, which could make them great shocktroopers if that turns out to be true.

            Frankly… we don’t know enough about Holy Skeletons yet. After next chapter we can talk about this.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            True enough. I really am curious to know some of the Necro spells LHC has learned and their effects. I am going to be so happy if he becomes a death knight, mwhahahahahah. This also might allow him to use stuff on the level of forbidden spells when he gets higher ranked which would be awesome.

    • ShelfCloud

      Haochen could be indeed a bit more open-minded here. He seems to firmly believe the storys that were passed down. But this appears to be the main reason he does not want to learn necromancy. So if the past events really did not happen the way it was told and he comes to know the truth, then he might change his viiewpoint. I am really curious how this will turn out.

  • Mr. White

    Thx for the chap!

  • ZaX

    But but I’m so curious to what a holy necromancer can do! Hao Chen don’t squander the chance. Thanks for the chapter

  • Gustavo

    Why is everyone only thinking of LHC learning Necromancy? In my view, the one who will learn and use Necromancy will be HaoYue. It’s a good fit, better than making LHC a Necromancer/Guardian Knight/Retribution Knight. Or even better, no one learn Necromancy yet, and in the future when HaoChen finds a suitable person, he pass on the knowledge to that person that will then create the seventh temple.

    • Luke Confidential

      Because Hao Yue is a magical beast who has shown zero inclination towards learning spells not programmed into his biology.

      Also because Hao Yue is already destined to be a caster of NUMEROUS elements and will gradually overshadow LHC more and more at this rate.

      Lastly because Hao Yue made no efforts to become Elux’ apprentice, not even trying to stick Little Light up there for the testing, instead pushing it all off on LHC.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        All the spells for necromancy have also been written into LHC’s brain. So now it is less of whether he will learn necromancy and more of a question of whether he will use it.

  • YouHaveCatTobeKittenMeRightMeo

    Do you really take a day to translate?

    • Luke Confidential

      Not all day, he also has an independent life of his own lol.

      While this pacing doesn’t compare with some of the stuff on Wuxia World, it’s pretty good in general. Far better than the pacing presently being put in on Douluo Dalu [by the same Author.]

      • YouHaveCatTobeKittenMeRightMeo

        Thanks for the explanation..

    • Robin

      It takes many hours even if there are no interruptions in the process. And there are several steps before the translation is in the form you see here. After the first translation there is the editing and rechecking against the raws, then the clearing of the raws. Believe me, it is a lot of work and rather time consuming. Even the editing takes about 1-2 hours if it is done right. The pace Tony keeps is really good.

      • YouHaveCatTobeKittenMeRightMeo

        Thanks for the explanation.

    • Robin said it all, I’m taking care of all the translating, most of the editing and all of the post-checking processes, and don’t forget my english isn’t native so although I believe that it is close to bilingual level, I’m far from being as fast at typing and thinking english than most native speaker are.

      Considering I have (hard) classes outside of that and that I am often helping with relatives’ job, most of my little free time already goes into translating, so I think the way you formulate your question is reeeally rude.

      I wanted to do dual chapters releases during holidays, but these ones are coming with Christmas, new year, driver license and this sort of stuff, so these holidays won’t do, but I’m always doing my best for you readers. You know, I believe I am already very commited to translating, and that’s also why I’m spending 15 min to type all this to try to ‘justify’ myself. Some translators would rather go for a weekly pace to be more relaxed, but I have never failed to bring a daily release when I have to, and have never been late on my standard releases so I don’t think I’m doing things bad..

      • YouHaveCatTobeKittenMeRightMeo

        You have nothing to hide based on your response so why do you think this question is really rude?

        This is my first time commenting here. Thanks for the explanation though.

        • I just interpreted the ‘really’ as a ‘I don’t believe it, you’re just trying to fool people’

          • YouHaveCatTobeKittenMeRightMeo

            Sorry.

          • Robin

            I think it is no mistake to let the readers know how much work is invested into this. Nowadays the costless accessability of many novels and mangas clouds the fact that there are still people working hard to provide them.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I agree with Robin thanks a ton Toto, sometimes having the effort explained helps people appreciate it all the more. I have to say I am personally amazed at the speed and quality you get these releases out for us especially considering that you have school and life to juggle along with them.

          • Robin

            And it is surprising how many steps there are. But it is an interesting work. Sadly I can’t translate but editing works. As long as the RL allows it at least. And finding time at such a steady and regular basis as Toto does is damn hard.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I do have to admit never really was interested in learning other languages in school because it was tedious and annoying in class. Given the choice though if I can get enough free time would love to learn Chinese or Japanese just so I could try doing translation work. Also I appreciate all the effort of the editors too. 😀 Having everything in a nice flowing and sensible language makes me happy inside.

          • Robin

            Right now I am working on a paper and have less time for editing, so Toto does all the work. Ganbatte if you want to learn japanese or chinese! I took classes for several years but I am nowhere near a level where I would be able to translate anything. ^^°

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Its on my list of things I should try and do in the future. In there as well is become good at Starcraft and probably see the pyramids.

          • YouHaveCatTobeKittenMeRightMeo

            You may delete my comments if this will feed the serious haters. Thank you.

          • Don’t worry, you don’t have to feel bad as you didn’t have any bad intent. I should be the one to be sorry for having overreacted on this and misunderstood you.

        • Robin

          And you are not the first one demanding faster releases. And there were some serious haters some time ago, aggresively attacking our dutifull translator. Don’t take it to heart. I didn’t know how much work was behind the scenes before I talked to the translator either. 😉

          • YouHaveCatTobeKittenMeRightMeo

            Thanks Robin for the further explanation.

          • Robin

            You are welcome. We all enjoy reading and discussing the novel.

  • cseti

    If in the future, you are to find undoubtedly trustworthy companions, you can lead them to be trained there. Of course, this is on the premise that they aren’t users of the filthy darkness attribute I loathe the most.

    So Cai er cant go in, because Elux dont like darkness?

    • Robin

      Who says she is of the darkness attribute?

  • Cherokee

    I want Haochen to become a full blown necromancer. That would be so cool!
