Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 278


Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 278: Exchange, Glorious Grade (III)

They picked those three pieces of equipment for Long Haochen with complete sincerity. In truth, it was even only after thinking about the items to pick for Long Haochen that they looked for the rest of the equipment for themselves. Every time they met with powerful enemies, Long Haochen was the first to confront them as a Guardian Knight, and his Saint Spiritual Stove would always draw the strongest opponent towards him, regardless of whether he was a match to stop this opponent or not. As his companions, they had always seen this time and time again.

Lin Xin smiled happily, “Boss, quickly take it. I’m going to get some sleep now. I’ll snatch time to make some pills tomorrow, early in the morning. Our current balance of contribution points is closer to 90,000 than 100,000, but I believe that after we come back from this mission, we should at least have gotten this bit back.”

Eyeing his comrades with reddish eyes, Haochen declared, “I cannot help but thank you, otherwise it would be ungrateful of me… Everyone should have an early rest today, do your best to be in top condition when we set off.”

As he said this, Long Haochen recovered the three pieces of equipment displayed in front of him, before heading back to his room with Cai’er in his arms.

The other five smiled at each other, and then happily headed back to their own rooms with their newly obtained items in hand. After today’s huge purchases, although it couldn’t be said that everyone was equipped to the teeth, their purchases were sufficient to raise their team’s strength to a whole new level. In fact, even in a commander grade Demon Hunt Squad, knights who could be clad in an entire Brilliant set like Long Haochen were extremely rare. That was to say nothing of a team that was still at the general grade. Exchanging their contribution points for equipment would greatly increase their survivability on the battlefield.

Three days passed in the blink of an eye, and early in the morning of the fourth day, the Demon Hunt Squads were gathered at the entrance of their villas, having forty-two carriages waiting for them. The majority of the carriages was numbered. Among them were four soldier grade, nine general grade, twenty-two commander grade, four king grade, and three unnumbered carriages.

A total of forty-two Demon Hunt Squads acting together during this mission was an extremely rarely seen occasion in the Temple Alliance. It were no less than two hundred and fifty-two elites of the Alliance. And they were all powerhouses willing to risk their lives in the fight against demons in the midst of the battlefield. The carriages were placed in accordance to their own numbering. Up until now, they still didn’t know what sort of mission they were called for. All they knew was that they were headed to the Southern Town’s Mountain Pass镇南关, located in the territory under the Priest Temple’s jurisdiction.

Those forty-two Demon Hunt Squads were to act along with a batch of elites directly subordinated to the Alliance, numbering five thousand in total. And since they were dispatched by the Six Great Temples, there was no need to doubt their strength. Among them, the Knight Temple dispatched the greatest assisting army, which included a team of a total of hundred Temple Knights led directly by the Saint Knight Han Qian, and entailing seven Saint Knights. More terrifying, all the Temple Knights of this group were Foundation Mythril Armored Knights, the true core of the elite of the Knight Temple. From this, the scale of the crisis the Southern City’s Mountain Pass faced, could be judged.

The Knight Temple’s Saint Knight head, Han Qian was also the commander of this operation. Forty-two Demon Hunt Squads and an army of five thousand elites of the Six Great Temples were deployed, obeying his orders.

Long Haochen and his comrades were taking seats in the carriage marked with ‘21st general’. The order they received so far was simple: to leave for the Southern City’s Mountain Pass and follow the team leader’s direction. The concrete details of the War Mission would be assigned after arriving at the Southern City’s Mountain Pass.

Because the Holy City was in the center of the Tempe Alliance, the distance to the mountain pass was very small. Rapidly advancing, it didn’t even take a day for the reinforcements to arrive at a distance fifty kilometers away from the Southern City’s Mountain Pass.

However, arriving there, the atmosphere among the whole reinforcements immediately turned serious, because even at a distance of fifty kilometers, they could already see the distant smoke fuming up, coming from the direction of the Southern City’s Mountain Pass.

The Saint Knight Han Qian immediately reacted by transmitting the order to head there at full speed. Meanwhile, the Temple Knight Regiment, as well as the four king grade Demon Hunt Squads, and the three Demon Hunt Squads of unknown grade left their carriages behind and set out at full speed towards the Southern City’s Gate.

From the window, Long Haochen saw about twenty figures leaving the seven carriages at lightning speed. All of them were at the very least at the seventh step of cultivation. From afar, Long Haochen only saw a phantomlike afterimage of the six people from the carriage in the front. Sima Xian clenched his fist with an excited face. Clearly, he was an authentic predisposed war-lover.

Because of the pressed advance, the whole journey was spent with everyone still in their carriages, having difficulty to hold back. This was especially the case for Sima Xian who had just obtained the Energetical Ball of Light and had been holding back for a long time now. He had only tried it out once, against Long Haochen.

Then, Sima Xian had swung it by its chain, completely bringing out the Energetical Ball of Light’s true might while Long Haochen had relied on the Brilliant Holy Shield. Even though he had added Divine Obstruction to the Holy Shield technique, he had barely managed to block it. Still, he had been pushed back six steps, almost falling down, with both of his arms aching from the shock.

Of course, after such an attack, Sima Xian would have needed time to store more power if he had wanted to launch another blow with the same strength.

The reason why he could display such might was because of the abnormality of the Energetic Ball of Light. It could instantly erupt with great power due to its supplementary ability Crush, which was an inseparable part of it. Inside of the Energetical Ball of Light was a magical array that could absorb the surrounding light essence through a magical crystal. Thus, this Crush ability didn’t even need Sima Xian to use his own spiritual energy to sustain it.

The most terrifying thing was that Crush could actually be combined with Long Haochen’s self-created technique Ripples of Light. Though both sides employed this technique, even Long Haochen was almost unable to resist its combination with Crush.

Since this match, Sima Xian had always been brimming with enthusiasm, wanting to try out this new weapon against demons. He had fallen in deep love with this Energetical Ball of Light. If not for the limited space inside of the carriage, he probably wouldn’t have resisted the urge of holding this metallic swelling golden item in his hands.

Han Yu asked Long Haochen, “Captain Long, what do you believe is the grade of the Demon Hunt Squads that are in those three unnumbered carriages?”

Long Haochen replied, “They should be at the Emperor grade.”

Han Yu then asked with some excitement, “Couldn’t they be at the titled grade? Just like those six almighty elders we previously met in the Exorcist Mountain Pass.”

Long Haochen shook his head, “This is not very probable.”

Lin Xin said on his side, “It’s rather impossible. Titled Demon Hunt Squads don’t receive missions from the Alliance, and are the Alliance’s greatest heroes in terms of contribution. They don’t reside in Holy City either. Titled Demon Hunt Squad’s members have to be at the ninth step of cultivation, but powerhouses of the ninth step won’t necessarily belong to a Titled Demon Hunt squad. From my point of view, the Demon Hunt Squads that were traveling in those three carriages should be at the emperor grade. It’s just that they would be of different strengths. The carriage at the front is very possibly a Demon Hunt Squad constituting of six powerhouses at the ninth step.”

Wang Yuanyuan nodded, “I agree with has-drug-bro. Considering our strength, we shouldn’t be part of the main force, but probably its backup force. We will just kill as much as we can.” This girl’s love for war was not the slightest bit inferior to Sima Xian’s.

An hour later, the reinforcement army finally reached the Southern City’s Mountain Pass, and Long Haochen understood for what sort of emergency the Alliance had dispatched them all.

In the midst of thick smoke, the scent of blood reeked out from all directions, and right after getting off the carriage, Long Haochen was immediately shocked. It was because he saw with horror a total of twelve thick pillars of light in the sky. There were actually twelve of the seventy-two demon gods present on this battlefield.

From inside the thick smoke that rose from the Southern City’s Mountain Pass, ear splitting battle noises resounded. The battle seemed to have already entered this Southern City, whose defense looked like it wouldn’t last for much longer.

Temporarily acting as the commander, Han Qian immediately transmitted the order for all Demon Hunt Squads to join the battle, and the various commanders from the Six Great Temples led their forces, entering the Southern City’s Mountain Pass.

Perhaps this was because Han Qian already led a reinforcement team before this, the city’s gate was wide open. Prepared to enter in the city, Long Haochen was suddenly called out.

“Haochen!” Luc Xi, Lin Xin, and the rest of their 22nd general grade Demon Hunt Squad hurried over, joining Long Haochen’s group.

It wasn’t only them: the 2nd soldier grade Demon Hunt Squad commanded by Yang Wenzhao as well as the 3nd soldier grade Demon Hunt Squad commanded by Duan Yi all came to join them.

Luc Xi was the fastest, immediately addressing Long Haochen, “Haochen, we are already used to working together, how about collaborating this time again? We will fully comply to your command, absolutely carrying out any of your orders.”

His voice wasn’t loud, but extremely firm and resolute. His attitude of clinging to their group was distinct.

Yang Wenzhao and Duan Yi came in large strides, and Yang Wenzhao spoke first, “Haochen, our four groups are newly formed Demon Hunt Squads, and the situation inside the Southern Mountain’s City is not very clear. We will very possibly run into strong enemies. How about acting together?”

Duan Yi also nodded, expressing his agreement with Yang Wenzhao.

As the most talented emerging knights from the Knight Temple, they were naturally intelligent, and although they didn’t clearly understand the nature of the first mission accomplished by Long Haochen’s group, with Yang Wenzhao’s status as the grandson of the chief of the Temple Alliance, it wasn’t hard for him to learn that the 4th soldier grade Demon Hunt Squad had followed Long Haochen during the mission they completed.

When they saw the words ‘22nd general’ on their carriage, Yang Wenzhao and Duan Yi were truly shocked.

What was this magic trick? Long Haochen’s group had a great amount of contribution points from the period of test, but what about Luc Xi’s group? Yang Wenzhao even heard that Luc Xi’s group ordered a batch of Holy Spirit Pills to raise their strength.

If Yang Wenzhao and Duan Yi couldn’t guess that this had something to do with Long Haochen’s squad, they would be fools. Now, facing the unclear situation in the Southern City’s Mountain Pass, they remembered Long Haochen’s outstanding performance during the period of test and, after careful consideration, decided to lead their teams to his side.


  • Dawnyaaa

    Yes chapter!

    I thought ToTo was being assaulted by sexually entranced chinese women and that we lost him ^^

    • lol, you’re overthinking this. I just went to visit many places because of the excitement from discovering a new place, while maintaining a reasonable/moderate translation time.

      • Dawnyaaa

        I wouldn’t bet on it. I can feel your grinning face across continent, you Lady-Killer 😀

    • Robin

      Guess the readers are just not used to the early release times. Time difference is a nice thing. 😉

  • Koon Agnis

    Thank you so much for the chapter!

  • Koon Agnis

    I wonder is we’ll be seeing hao chens dad at this battle? Probably won’t see him though.

    • Dawnyaaa

      I doubt it. I even doubt we’ll see Austin he’ll probably stay hidden the whole fight sensing this fight is to probe him out.

      It’ll probably a whole fight when we’ll see the whole 21th team showing off their prowess, renewed strength and new glorious tier!

      • Schattenbach

        I guess. The demon god emporer had enough time to count two and two together and thus come to the conclusion that Austin’s likely staying with some DHS. Maybe he even took the time to check what members that DHS has back then when he sensed him around the cave (before he vanished … due to entering the tower … or maybe already due to coming near the tower that might block spying effects) and marked them for further “looking-for-Austin”-research.

  • AnarchyDev

    I do wonder why the temple alliance doesn’t allow another extra healer to be added to mc’s team since they are all so important but the higher ups try to upload the rules when clearly there’s more advantage in the team having an official healer… Anyways, just random talk…

    Thanks for the chapter.

    • Sushanth Reddy

      I think it sets a dangerous precedent for future. They already bent the rules once when they allowed Cai’Er to join the team. Too many times and people will start to alienate HaoChen’s team because of the favoritism.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        More people you add the more the team will stand out. Part of the point of Demon Hunt Squads is that they are like small strike groups that can sneak behind enemy lines because there are not that many of them. Adding a healer also means one more person to integrate and protect. There are upsides, but I think 7 is probably the max they can afford before the unit gets a bit too big.

        • Luke Confidential

          There will come a time that Ying-Er, by virtue of her Body of Chaos, can pull a healer at will if needed.

      • Robin

        But don’t forget that Haochen payed a high price for the chance to pick her. And they only bent the rules a little in her case, since she still is the only assassin of the team and no real addition, but part of the 6 usual members. Han Yu is with them through the loophole of the retainer knight contract. Any more additions would be hardly accepted that easily by their surroundings. Especially since the team gained fame. AND they have something like a second priest in Haoyue. Any addition would probably be overkill anyway.

        • Schattenbach

          Well … broken-tier-mount shouldn’t count when it comes to evaluating the fairness of adding additional team members … especially since knight-types could’ve light-attribute mounts like the Starlight Unicorn, too.

          • Robin

            This was rather refering to the fact that an additional priest is not really needed.

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • dreamer

    Thanks for the chapter!

    I think something is wrong in this paragraph:
    “It wasn’t only them: the third soldier grade Demon Hunt Squad commanded by Yang Wenzhao as well as the 2nd soldier grade Demon Hunt Squad commanded by Duan Yi all came to join them.”

    If I remembered it correctly, Yang Wenzhao lead the 2nd while Duan Yi lead the 3rd

    • third, thanks

      • SYWZ fan

        You changed “2nd” to “3nd” and “third” still needs to be changed to “second”( I would prefer “2nd” instead of “second” though) btw thanks for the chap

        • Evilage

          Funny i didnt even notice that…. 0.0

  • Tomas Hoffman

    Kinda disappointing that the next chapter just has Haochen passing off the sword his team gave him. I was expecting him to use it to help his energy costs from tanking. Though for this fight it looks like Han Yu is gonna need it to heal more than Haochen.

  • ZaX

    Man really wanna see that Energetic Light Ball in action soon now. Thanks for the chapter

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • Scandalf

    hmm. so what happened to Cai’er ? did I just miss it while reading ? cuz I don’t think author mentioned if he brought Cai’er with him or if he left her at that city. And I really don’t understand why he actually accepted that mission, when he clearly said that he wouldn’t take any missions until Cai’er got her senses back. Author is just forgetting what he wrote himself…
    just got here after reading recent chapters of ISSTH and the difference between the two novels is just so big it is like comparing a 5 year old kids drawing to picasso’s drawing… Er Gen just made the MC remember something from who knows how many chapters before and made him use that information to his own benefit, and this guy here forget what he wrote just 10-12 chapters ago.
    If novels like these are actually so popular in China then they need some talented authors ASAP.
    if it wasn’t for MC and Cai’er’s releationship and I wasn’t out of novels to read I would just drop it at like 100th chapter or something. yes, I am talking about that 100 chapter long tournament arc…

    • Gustavo

      ISSTH and Shen Yin Wang Zuo can’t be compared because they are not in the same genre, and their author have different writing styles. ISST is really descritive, whereas Shen Yin Wang Zuo presents the world and character more. When reading this, did you consider the world setting, Cai’er and LHC’s personality? And what the squad would decide? Now, let me ask you, now considering those settings, can you see them refusing this mission?

      • Scandalf

        yes I can fucking see them refusing. LHC is the one who refused to select Cai’er just because of a single promise with someone he doesn’t even know, but when he promises Cai’er that he will protect her and he promises that legendary grups captain that he will stay out of danger together with haoyue because of the 1st demon god, he just forgets about them ? and the above says stop fanboying , really ? It feels like to me you guys are the ones fanboying. if you read the comments carefully enough even a retard can realize that none of you could answer any of my questions or doubts with even a little bit of logic. so yeah, good job trying to be a “anti-fanboy”, but you failed, miserably.
        and ISSTH and SYWZ has different genres ? now, I want you to just go to the novel updates, and look at the genres a real quick, and tell me if you see xianxia in both of them or not.
        just a bunch of fanboy kids trying to group up and defend a shitty writer against someone who asked a few logical questions. you should be happy that I even took you guys seriously, or you would keep being ignorant to even the fact that ISSTH and SYWZ has the same genres… really… different genres, sigh…

    • Sushanth Reddy

      Read the next cha

    • Indream

      Man author of this only bad with numbers. It’s emergency(and seems like huge one), and basicaly they can’t refuse if you think about it (huge blow with their relationship with other DH, Mission Tower, Alliance. They could also forgot about their dream of becoming titled dh squad). Also add to account what Gustavo said.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      It did say in a previous chapter that he discussed the idea of skipping the mission with his team and they decided paying 6,000 Contribution Points to skip was too much. So I would say no, the author did not forget what LHC said, but situations come up that demand he changes. He will make sure Cai’er is safe but he also has a responsibility to fight and help protect others with his power. He made specifically sure to buy Cai’er two amazing defensive pieces of Glorious equipment and considering her abilities as long as she stays behind LHC she should be safe. At the very least LHC will die before he lets the demons hurt her.

      • Luke Confidential

        Sixty Thousand. For a General Grade squad to skip costs 10,000 points per member.

        Were it only Six Thousand, with the sheer depth of points the Bright Rays of Sunshine had I doubt they’d have taken such a risk while their Assassin is down.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Woops one zero off thanks for the correction, :D.

    • Robin

      Haochen didn’t forget his statement and the author didn’t forget anything either. Your comment shows that you haven’t read carefully and are really hasty to judge. Cai’er is with them, and was probably the first one to urge Haochen on to accept the mission. In such an emergency it would rather be a breech of character design to have Haochen play sitting duck while all DHSs available fight for their lifes.
      Slowly it is annoying to read this kind of slander about the story and the author’s writing style. If you don’t want to read it and like other styles better, please, no one is forcing you to.

      • Haythm B. Talhouni

        then what about hou yue, will LHC bring him along with 12 demon gods around
        chapter 278
        “It was because he saw with horror a total of twelve thick pillars of light in the sky. There were actually twelve of the seventy-two demon gods present on this battlefield.”
        because was LHC warned by the demon god slayers demon hunt squad that not to bring hou yue to somewhere he might be detected
        like what is said in chapter 210 “Chen Zidian’s eyes flashed, “I also reckon it as highly possible. From my investigation, you completed a blood contract with him at the time you went to the Knights’ Saint Mountain. Since this is the case, until you two are powerful enough, don’t let him appear in places where the Demon God Emperor could learn of his existence. He just managed to conceal himself from the Demon God Emperor, so he should be able to keep doing so in the future. Humans need a hero like the Scion of Samsara of that time.”

        • Robin

          I don’t want to spoil so I will not answer the question here. You are right, he should at least be reeeeeeally careful. But we already know that Haochen doesn’t really head the advice of wiser and older people. Sheng Yue also advised him to keep himself and Cai’er out of real danger until they are at least 20, and remember, the last mission went completely against this advice. The more important question is, can he even afford to relinquish Haoyue’s help under those conditions?

  • lordcattank

    thank you very much for the chapter

  • Zeth

    Thank you very much Totobro.
    Finally some action!

  • VanillaCustardPie

    Thank you~

  • Majk

    I kinda dont want the other squads (except for Luc Xis squad) to join them. Especially Yang Wenzhao since now I kinda don’t like him which is surprising since I was all for him when they were in the tournament.

    I was hoping for him to be some kind of rival but LHC out grew here for too quickly and now he just annoys me

    • Jonathan Hurd

      My prediction of the others joining under LHC is coming true, wooh! Didn’t think it would happen this fast honestly, lol.

      • Majk

        Well they probably wont be working as close as with Luc Xis squad since that was a mission and this will be more like the fight where they got Yating the Light Fairy so they may still go on some missions later to truly realize that LHC is the best commander out of them.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          True, but it is a start… Mwhahahaha. Soon they will be just like Luc Xi completely loyal to LHC. It won’t be long before LHC has his own army!

          • Majk

            I dont know why but I like how you think

          • zeta

            do you think the grp that tried to scam the hero will join him too? i hope so

          • Majk

            I think so. Their captain seemed to have a good opinion on LHC, they know that he is strong and if they see his commanding skill then they wont have a reason to not have a good relationship with him.

          • zeta

            that would be good another good group will be under his wing

          • dreamer

            LHC’s army of necromancer team up with Yue Ye’s moon demon clan against the alliance…
            That will be awesome!

          • Robin

            I think now you twist the thread a little too much. Haochen against the Alliance, seriously?

          • Majk

            Plot twist HYs blood will start to influence and change him after his next evolution

          • Luke Confidential

            Plot twist plot twist.

            The Alliance is the remnant of the Church and although most people in it are just good people trying to get by and survive in a hostile world… those at the very top are basically farming humanity and demonkind [and the conflict between] for energy for some nefarious purpose.

          • Schattenbach

            And who’s supposedly “at the top” of the six temple Alliance?

            Haochen’s dad (who has been deemed to be too dogmatic by the knight the demon god slayers)? The other divine knights? Cai’er’s grandfather? Some other guys of the 8th or 9th step? Some hidden powerhouses we (as well as most of those in charge) know nothing about that are pulling the strings while those officially in charge might know nothing about that (about that god, the ongoing evil plot, ecetera)?

            And for what purpose are they collecting that energy (if they’re collecting energy … or “faith energy” or something along these lines … or souls, lifeforce or whatever else they might be collecting) to begin with? For their god(s) (it’s a church, after all … so it’s either ancestors/heros, the world itself or deities they’re worshipping)…. to empower it or sustain it? If so and if genuine gods exist in that setting … and if humans exist (or existed) in Haoyue’s world, then that god(s) might actually be extra-dimensional, otherworldly or cosmic horror like and could therefore also have existed in Haoyue’s world, then Haoyue could’ve had circumstances comparable to that of the necromancers … with the difference that humans likely weren’t the only dominant species of Haoyue’s world and Austin is just too strong.

          • Schattenbach

            I wonder if they’re actually secretly worshipping something akin to the Outer Gods … or some supposedly omniponent monotheistic deity that claims to present cosmic order.

          • Schattenbach

            Or, if they don’t actually serve a god but are still collecting some kind of energy, then they might be trying to turn someone (or something) into a deity. There’s not much point in speculating about this because, well, we don’t actually know what kind of deities humanity believes in in this setting (with the expection of them considering “light”/light attribute to be holy …).

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Against…? Yes… to begin with maybe… till eventually he shows them the error of their ways for opposing the Savior LHC! Then he takes them in under his belt along with the demons to turn from Savior LHC to Conqueror LHC! All dimensions shall tremble under Conqueror LHC! MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

      • Majk

        Also with how things went with the 8th general grade he might get them under his wing sooner rather than later.

        And so the legend said that LHC built his own army and rebeled killing everyone who opposed him MUAHAHAHA!

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Considering he also has Yue Ye striving to come under his control and if she actually becomes the Moon demon god…. his power…. His power will be overwhelming!

  • Evilage

    Ye
    haochens time is coming
    future overlord of all the races
    these small humans is only the first step
    thanks for the chapter

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I think with Hao Chen’s armor they are talking about more along the lines of a darker golden color. I think the Demon God Emperor’s is probably black with gold mixed in, if that makes sense.

  • annahc20z

    Thanks for the chapter totobro 🙂

  • Luke Confidential

    I must say, the reaction of the other top-tier new squads to the Bright Rays of Sunshine’s equipment was…..

    …. glorious.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Well played… That glorious joke certainly suits the occasion.

  • Haythm B. Talhouni

    thanks for the chapter
    but i thought that they will rise their grade from “general grade” to “commander grade”

    • Robin

      They can’t yet. They not only need contribution points for a second upgrade, but also to reach the sixth step as a team and so far, even Haochen didn’t break through.

      • Haythm B. Talhouni

        Thanks Robin
        another question dose it have to be one or all members have to be at 6th step before upgrading into commander grade

        • Robin

          You are welcome. 😉 All members need to be at the sixth step. It is the same as with the general grade. Then, all the members needed to be at the fifth step. Luc Xi’s squad was able to upgrade now because they got a nice power burst after completing the mission.

          • Haythm B. Talhouni

            ohh now i get it

            THANKS!!!! 🙂

      Last stop will be kicking the crap out of the Demon God Emperor!

      • Luke Confidential

        You mean the last stop will be after Austin Griffon has devoured the DGE and assimilated his power [Dragon Clan ftw] and Long Haochen and Austin Griffon lead their squad on a raid of the other planes.

        Like the Raids after the end of the content for WoW

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Oh who am I kidding there is no last stop on this train it’ll just keep chugging along to greater and greater heights, :D.

  • felix

    Its still not clear to me what the situation with Cai’er is. Based on preview she’s there since author mentions them as 7, but… she’s still only got the sense of touch? Am I missing something?

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I think she is definitely still working with only sense of touch and ability to sense spiritual energy. The big thing to remember is LHC’s promise that he would always keep her at his side. So I think he is going to keep her close so he can protect her, but she is going to just be staying hidden this time around. She has also been fit out with that invisibility necklace and the armor that can help withstand blows so she should be fine close to LHC. The big reason he doesn’t leave her behind is he is afraid that she will get hurt while she is separated form him that is why he even takes her into battle.

      • Robin

        Yes, and he can’t spare Haoyue to guard her. The next chapter will solve this ridle and explain in detail what happens with her. Just wait a day and you will learn it. 😉

    • Mark

      She will recover all the senses she lost in one time(now i dnt remember the precise amount of time, so take the example. 1st sense=1month to recover,2ns sense=2month+1st=3months, 3rd sense=4months+1st+2nd=7months to recover all of them etc…).
      For each path of samsara she lose one sense, but each other sense need the double amount of time to recover, and prolong the time also for the first sense
      If cai’er used the 5th path, she wouldve lost also her sense of touch( which is using to comunicate with LHC)

      • Schattenbach

        She should be really careful when it comes to losing her sense of touch, though, because “that time” was the most horrible time in her whole life …

        • Who Care

          It was because she was all alone otherwise how could it be her worst time ? Sure she doesn’t feel anything who touch her but she could still see, heard, speak and smell at that time. … well maybe she wasn’t alone but given how much she love her family they could have all been there and it wouldn’t have changed anything for her.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Using the stove for the fifth time is worse than losing her sense of touch. I believe if she goes that far it shuts down all her senses permanently. She would still be alive, but all her senses would be locked down and sealed for the rest of her life.

    another matter up to until now

    in chapter 271

    dosen’t Long HaoChen Internal Spiritual reach 100

    so

    in this chapter 271 “The instant Yating appeared, Long Haochen’s body was ignited in holy flames. Following next, Yating displayed her might, revealing the powerful assisting ability of a Light Elemental Fairy at the third stage of evolution.”

    and based on chapter 204 “Over the course of forty days of the fusion, Long Haochen’s body as the Scion of Light had been completely aroused. And he didn’t know that every time Yating evolved, his own innate internal energy would increase by a level.

    Thus, Long Haochen’s innate internal spiritual energy had reached 99, which was only second to Cai’er’s score of 100.”

    so when will you guys announce a special title for Long Hao Chen like for Cai’er

    in this chapter 106 “You shouldn’t forget that 3000 years ago, our Assassin Temple was almighty; that Scion of Samsara relied on his formidable strength and innate talent and managed to get rid of seven of the demon gods. At the very end, he even managed to deal with the first demon god, and had been inflicting serious damages to the demon race for thirty years. And yet, that Scion of Samsara only had his innate internal spiritual energy at the 91st level. And back to our era, she’s the one we found to succeed that killing machine of a Scion of Samsara. Her innate internal spiritual energy is even greater compared to his former 91st level; it was originally at the 93rd level, but after she inherited the spiritual stove of the previous Scion of Samsara, it reached the 100th level! According to legends, this level is even given another title: the one known as the Saint Daughter of Samsara, an existence that will in the future be able to challenge the first demon god! If we compare her to the Yang Wenzhao from your noble temple, who’s the unimportant one and who’s the important one?”

    what do you guys think!

    • Robin

      Well, Haochen is one level away from the 100 at 99. I think he knows it now, since he made the retainer knight contract with Sima Xian, and due to a little calculating mistake of the author, Haochen wouldn’t have been able to do this without being level 99. Since Han Quian is the only one to conclude the contract with the innate talent sharing aspect, the Knight Temple and Haochen should know about it.

      Before she merged with the Stove of Samsara and reached level 100, Cai’er was the Scion of Samsara. So until Haochen does the leap to reach level 100 as well, there should not be a different title for him.

      • Haythm B. Talhouni

        but if i remember during the challenge with 5th brother it was also mentioned that yating had completed her 3rd evolution right
        and hao chen with a retainer contract may affect him mentally only right
        like here in chapter 129 “Han Qian gave his reply without hesitating the slightest bit, “The limit would be two. It is because this method involves a spiritual link; if there are too many retainers, that will naturally influence the mental capacity of the master knight and have unfavorable effects on it. As a result, I’d say that, from our knowledge, the absolute limit would be two retainer knights.””

        • Robin

          Yating was at the first step of evolution when she came to Haochen. Afterwards, she evolved two times and is now at the 3rd step if you want to express it in terms of human cultivation. The wording here is a little misleading. Haochen had no further raise of his innate level after reaching 99, at least not as far as we know. 😉

          Since this was never executed, Han Quian can only guess and estimate that the burden of more than 2 retainers would impede further cultivation. One reason why Sima is so dedicated to Haochen is, that Haochen risked a great deal taking him on as his third retainer. It worked out since his mental ability is also a lot higher than that of others, but three should also be the limit for Haochen. The risk and Sima’s new status were casually mentioned some chaps back, if you want to check, but I can’t name the exact chap. ^_^

          • Haythm B. Talhouni

            ok thanks alot i understand now

      • felix

        Have a feeling its gonna be Child of Light

        • Robin

          It is a possibility and it would sound good, I am curious what the author will shake out of his sleeve when the time comes.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Still have to wonder if 100 is the limit or if Cai’er’s Innate just stopped there. Especially since they promised at least 3 evolution’s for Elemental Fairies and then a chance of going further. This is LHC we’re talking about so of course he is going to get that 4th evolution. I wonder when that happens if he will become someone with 101 Innate Spiritual energy and what that would be called.

          • Robin

            Good thinking, there surely is room for further development. Let’s wait and see, since I have no clue what could be the augmentation of his possible title as level 100.

  • Schattenbach

    Yating is too prideful to support anyone besides Haochen (so she won’t support Haoyue or Haochen’s squad and such), or am I remembering that wrong?

    • Robin

      No, you are right. She only supports her contractor. But with the additional energy, Haochen can buff all of his teammates easily and Han Yu is also still there to support them from the back.
      And in combination with the 22nd gg DHS they also have access to a real priest. Just in case they need it.

      • Luke Confidential

        I imagine she could support Austin Griffon through Haochen because all three are intimately linked.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          I get the feeling she and Hao Yue don’t really see eye to eye, lol.

          • Luke Confidential

            Well duh.

            Austin Griffon looks down on her from his lofty place bound to Haochen’s head chakra, whatever that core location is called.

            Bitch tried to jack his spot and got put in her place.

        • Robin

          She could, but first, I don’t think she likes him very much. Haoyue made the hirarchy crystal clear. And second, I am not sure if he would accept her support. I mean, Little Light is able to use Light buffs as well and it should be a matter of pride to accept support from such a tiny thing that would be seen as a snack if it were not for Haochen.

  • Majulio

    I think I’ve found what Sima Xian’s weapon is. By the description it’s just a metal ball attached to a chain, almost like a Hammer Throw hammer.
    It doesn’t look like an efficient weapon, but it should be brutally strong.

    • Schattenbach

      Could also be something akin to a meteor hammer (the single-headed version).

      • Schattenbach

        (as in … the traditional chinese weapon Haochen’s also refering to) … but a really heavy (as well as unusually big … what with the 1-metre diameter and such) one.

        • Luke Confidential

          It more closely resembles a gigantic version of a European Flail [sans handle] than an Asian Meteor Hammer.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair if Sima’s strength becomes great enough he may be able to wield it in a fashion similar to a typical Meteor hammer. He is only 5th step still and is specializing in physical strength so doesn’t seem too far fetched.

          • Schattenbach

            Well … it could also be a repurposed wrecking ball.

      • Schattenbach

        Though with the chain being as thick and long as it is, it should require quite a bit of skill as well as sufficiently large opponents to use any of the usual chain-based techniques that are apperantly employed while using the usual kind of meteor hammer.

  • Orfydea

    Thank you for the chapter
    Btw. Does some1 have links for BTTH or Mahouka koukou novel?

    • Robin

      Look some chaps back in the comment area. There were all the links posted. I guess it was about 10 chaps back.

  • k1nk4

    thanks for the chapter!

  • Micky

    How man sense does Ca’ier have now?

    • CanaryWO

      She’s still missing the ones she lost, they’ll all come back at the same time 🙂

      • Ryan

        I thought they came in steps. One month for one, two months for the second, three months for the third, etc?

        • CanaryWO

          Yeah, I think you’re right, my fault. 🙂

        • mahatabata

          nope, they come back at the same time, but the duration depends in how many senses she uses
