Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 280


Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 280: Bloody Battle In the Southern Mountain Pass (II)

At the time Long Haochen passed on the Ripples of Light, Li Xin and Wang Yuanyuan went through a lot of difficulties trying to learn it, but instead of giving up like Dian Yan and Han Daosi, they stubbornly continued trying. In the end, the two insistent girls managed to learn this formidable supportive skill during Long Haochen’s trip to the Moon Castle. And they would benefit from this ability created by Long Haochen throughout their lifetime.

At this time, the Instant Blast Cross Cut Li Xin launched was combined with the exploding effect of Ripples of Light. As the Retribution Knight she was, attack was everything to her!

While, the Demon Wiping Flash instantly cut a Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon in four, Ripples of Light at least doubled Li Xin’s offensive power. Moreover, she hadn’t only broken through to the fifth step, but also taken the Holy Spirit Pill, and her cultivation of internal spiritual energy already reached an amount of over 3,000. Compared to the time they completed the Desolate Hissing Cavern’s mission, she already underwent a qualitative leap in power.

She wasn’t the only one to erupt with explosive attacks, since Sima Xian had been unable to hold back since long ago. The moment Long Haochen sent this Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon flying, his massive Energetic Ball of Light was immediately released as well.

With a glint of gaudy dark golden radiance shining in the sky, at the time it was launched, that massive golden ball blocked even Long Haochen’s line of sight with its massive size.

The following scene was just like the results of the launch of a bowling ball. Clashing against the remaining four Bloodthirsty Berserk Demons with an exploding sound, it sent them flying in all directions.

The Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon who was the closest became the first target of the Energetic Ball of Light. His body exploded into a minced state at once, not even leaving a corpse behind. The other Bloodthirsty Berserk Demons didn’t escape serious damage either, and were finally finished off in midair by Yi Jun’s spatial magic spells.
Sima Xian laughed with a pleased sound, “Crushing some flesh with my metallic ball feels so good!”

In the Nubo Clan, the ranking went as followed: the weakest were Berserk Demons, then came the Bloodthirsty Berserk Demons and after them the Scarlet Blooded Berserk Demons. While Bloodthirsty Berserk Demons couldn’t even compare to the strongest Scarlet Blooded Berserk Demons, they still matched human warriors of the fifth step of cultivation. Four or five Bloodthirsty Berserk Demons thus formed without a doubt a very powerful offensive strength.

However, with only four of them initiating the battle, their team of thirteen standing in the front handled the first clash without any difficulties. The powerful knight as the vanguard, the explosive power of the Retribution Knight, and that priest… Adding the spatial mage to the lot, the final analysis turned out just like Luc Xi said before: after having cooperated for a long time, everyone now managed to coordinate to a good level.

Everyone in the 22nd general grade Demon Hunt Squad was straightforward in their actions; doing everything they could to assist the 21st general grade Demon Hunt Squad in their charge. Not trying to steal the merit, but giving their all-out support, and listening to Long Haochen’s commands perfectly.

After getting rid of the Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon, Long Haochen didn’t have the slightest happy look. He also didn’t become frantic from having spilled the enemy’s blood, but on the contrary stayed calm instead. Launching another Charge, he forcibly closed the gap created in the formation. With Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light blossoming in his hand with a second Demon Wiping Flash, he simply stopped the demon armies headed in this direction.

Those Bloodthirsty Berserk Demons from before were the demon’s powerful vanguard, whereas the ones to follow behind were ordinary Berserk Demons from the Nubo Clan. In front of Long Haochen’s Demon Wiping Flash, these regular Berserk Demons hardly posed any threat. More than a dozen of them were killed with one strike, reducing the pressure in the front greatly.

”Change into a defensive formation. No one is allowed to advance prematurely!” Long Haochen shouted his order after judging the situation.

Their troops’ formation changed along with his order, Li Xin and Yuanyuan arrived at Long Haochen’s left flank whereas Sima Xian and Dian Yan were at his right flank. The five of them lined up and closed ranks, forming wall blocking the demon armies’ advance. At the back, the mages started to chant incantations at fast speed.

Material of excellent quality gave birth to an essentially formidable piece of equipment. To facilitate three inlaid spells, this fire cloud crystal belonging to Lin Xin was just of too good.

Lin Xin was plentifully satisfied with those three spells. The first reduced the time he needed for his incantations of fire elemental magic of a lower step by half, it was the so-called Fire Incantation. The other two were supplementary offensive techniques to make up for a mage that couldn’t use offensive spells like himself. They had a limited number of daily uses, so he couldn’t launch them rashly. But they were all spells of the sixth step, proving that this Fire Crystal Staff already reached the Legendary Tier.

Thus, relying on the Fire Crystal Staff to supplement his fire spells, he brought out the full might of his Fire Elemental Shields effortlessly. His control over fire magic was originally already outstanding, but with the addition of this strengthened staff, he became totally unrestrained. Being completely covered in dazzling scarlet flames, he became the most eye-catching mage on the whole battlefield.

Chen Ying’er was the complete opposite of the dazzling Lin Xin. Sitting on Haoyue’s back from beginning to end, this girl waved her little handsand shouted loudly, “Cheers, cheers… Kill them all!!!”

That’s right, this was all she did. It wasn’t because she didn’t want to join in the battle, but because of her position in the team. McDull’s display of power needed him to consume magical crystals, and it wasn’t as if he could keep battling for an infinite time. In case he ended up wounded, even if he was given more magical crystals, his strength would still receive a heavy blow. Thus, his strength that was bound to the consumed crystals was the strong backup force of the team. It would only be used at crucial times. Therefore, protected in the midst of the formation, all Chen Ying’er could do for now was yelling a few catchphrases.

Yang Wenzhao’s and Duan Yi’s teams spread out to both sides, also finding occasions to join the battle.

The addition of the two Demon Hunt Squads immediately made the situation on this side of the battlefield take a turn for the better. Especially the powerful spells of the mages gave the defenders some time to reorganize their forces.

However, the demon advance was extremely fierce. To say nothing of their vastly superior quantity of troops, they were almost only composed of middle and higher ranked demons. It went as far that not a single Dual Bladed Demon appeared. Even though the close quarter battles, the long range battles and the aerial battles were coordinated with each other, and everyone tried their hardest on each side, the human defense was still in immediate danger.

On Long Haochen’s side, the defense was the most solid. As the core of the team, he wielded his Glorious Holy Shield without being greedy for contribution points. He wholly focused on defending. Without need for him to worry about those demons below the fifth step, he left them all to Sima Xian at his side. One had no choice but to admit that after the addition of the two pieces of Glorious Equipment he had obtained, Sima Xian’s utility for the team had made a qualitative leap. The Energetic Ball of Light was really suited to this guy, giving him the means to completely crush the lower ranked demons with a single blow, reinforced by the Crush ability. With every attack, several demons’ lives were taken, leaving no intact corpses behind.

Demons also possessed a certain intelligence, and even lower ranked demons had an instinct of survival. The metallic ball in Sima Xian’s hand displaying so much power, that it caused those middle-ranked demons to unconsciously keep away from it, greatly alleviating the burden on their defense.

However, the strong performance on their side also attracted the attention of demon powerhouses.

An enormous blood-colored silhouette suddenly appeared from nowhere, aiming directly at Sima Xian. It came at a fast speed, causing Sima Xian who was being refreshed by all his killing to suddenly feel a chill. From above came a strong reeking of blood. Although his Energetic Ball of Light came with enormous power, it also had its own disadvantages, being mainly its enormous weight, thus affecting its handling speed. At such a time, placing the Energetic Ball of Light above his head was already a pretty good defensive move.

But just as if Sima Xian didn’t feel any danger from above, he kept swinging the Energetic Ball of Light in his hand, smashing all of those approaching demons with ease.

With a white glint, the blood-colored luster glowing in the sky suddenly changed directions at less than five meters away from Sima Xian. It was blocked by a glinting hexagonal shield in its way to attack Sima Xian.

It was the Brilliant Holy Shield, reinforced by Holy Shield and Divine Obstruction!
Of course, it wasn’t that Sima Xian didn’t know that an attack was aimed at him from above, even possibly threatening his life. He could just tranquilly face this threat due to the confidence he placed in his teammate.

Long Haochen naturally wouldn’t disappoint his comrades. He launched the effects of the Saint Spiritual Stove and immediately attracted the aerial attack to him.

An ear splitting resonance rang, and Long Haochen was pushed half a step back, his body being covered in a golden flash. Seizing the opportunity, he stroke out with Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light in his right hand. Haochen launched an attack without holding back, immediately arousing his spiritual energy by the means of Raise Flowers Into Trees to launch an instant Holy Sword, along with Shining Sunlight Strike, both carrying the power of Ripples of Light.

Three skills used as one would naturally not be aimed blindly. Through the opponent’s offensive, Long Haochen could determine his strength.

Stopping the enemy’s strike, the defense of the Glorious Holy Shield reinforced by the Holy Shield Technique was narrowly broken, and Divine Obstruction didn’t manage to completely get rid of its strength, causing even Long Haochen to be pushed back. Seventh step. Which opponent below the seventh step could compel Long Haochen in such a way?

The bloody silhouette slowly became visible, and its appearance was familiar to the 21st and 22nd general grade Demon Hunt Squads. It was precisely the main enemy they faced on their way to the Desolate Hissing Cavern, a Fiend. And this Fiend was visibly a Fiend Lord of the seventh step, just like the one that caused Cai’er to loose four of her senses.


  • Dicky

    Thanks for the chapter.
    Man, those still soldier-grade squads are just an afterthought, huh?
    So I’m guessing next chapter will be to show the growth of LHC’s squad from their last mission. How brutal will the slaughter be?

    • Robin

      Worldshakingly brutal. And yes, the soldier grade DHSs are simply decoration and support next to Haochen and his squad. Given the support from the 22nd gg DHS they are almost invincible at this level.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I’m personally a bit happy looking at this chapter. It seems like the others have finally hit a power point where they can assist LHC and Cai’er fighting the really big guys. That goes for the 22nd General DHS too. Though if they keep slaughtering their way through 7th steppers you know an 8th stepper is bound to arrive… I am going to enjoy the next few chapters!

        It also makes me happy that if the 2nd and 3rd soldier grade DHS see just how amazing the gap between them and the 22nd General DHS is now. It doesn’t take a genius to put together that this is because of LHC, hehe. I see a future alliance at some point! LHC will have 3 squads underneath him, mwhahahaha.

        • Robin

          I totally agree, the two soldier grade DHS will be soooooo jealous and ready to do everything to get closer to Haochen. And don’t forget the 8th gg DHS. I am sure they will pop up at some point to work together with Haochen, maybe when the step 8 demon will arrive. Since they are a veteran gg DHS, they should be able to support Haochen and guard their backs.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Also considering that the 8th gg DHS is at the brink of breaking through to the Commander Grade they should at least have a few 6th steppers on their side. That can only help in a fight with 8th steppers.

          • Robin

            Absolutely. This will be an amazing fight.

          • Luke Confidential

            The 8th GG has five 6th steppers, 5th bro and Contribution Points are their only obstacle.

        • Stephen_H

          Well big bro did create a new drug, I am thinking they will need to be fighting a demon at the pinnacle of the eight step to force LHC to use it.

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • Luke Confidential

    Bloody Battle indeed.

    Speaking of Bloody, I find myself wondering, is Crusher the Brutal Priest turning the enemies into tiny fleshy pieces that Has Drugs Bro can’t use, or is he breaking them into larger pieces that will actually save The Alchemist a little time?

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I think the ones completely destroyed are only the ones that take the full head on blow of his Ball and chain. The others who are hit with glancing or after that first one are probably in more pieces.

  • Arcadia Blade

    Thanks for the chapter.

  • Arcadia Blade

    Thanks for the chapter.

  • ZaX

    Sima Xian came in like a wrecking ball! Thanks for the chapter

    • Luke Confidential

      You could even say he……

      ….. wrecked their shit.

      … crushed the opposition.

  • ZaX

    Sima Xian came in like a wrecking ball! Thanks for the chapter

  • Alex Drake

    A demon similar to the one that made Cai/er lose her senses eh? Well he’s going to be brutally demolished next chapter

    • Luke Confidential

      Well, he didn’t *force* her to. She’s a soldier in a war. She chose for herself to give up her senses rather than die alongside her unit.

      That being said he’s about to get brutalized.

  • Anto Wibowo

    lin xin should be bleeding inside seeing those corpses obliterated by sima xian xD
    Thank you for the chapter!

    • Jonathan Hurd

      To be fair he is greedy, but not stupid. From the sounds of it there will be more than enough bodies left around after the dust settles. Also considering that these guys are only 5th step not even 6th step material I don’t think they are particularly lacking in that.

  • Captain Facts

    For some reason this makes me think of Recking Ball specced Sword and Board Paladins from WoW, back when Seals procced and Reckoning could be stacked up with the help of some friendly rogues.

    It was pretty freakin sweet to see my tanky dwarf wind up and f*cking ruin a boss in one hit.

    But they patched that. Because it was ridiculous. Further evidence of how awesome it was, really.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I remember watching some videos of that before. That was a hilarious effect watching the paladin just stand there being wailed on by a rogue then walk up and one shot bosses.

  • Koon Agnis

    Thank you for the chapter

  • RedDragonX

    Thanks for the chapter

  • lordcattank

    thank you very much for the chapter

  • Zeth

    Thank you very much Totobro
    LHC: vengueance!

  • VanillaCustardPie

    Thank you~

  • Evilage

    thanks for the chapter
    well sima xian’s dialogue was phrased in a really weird way but okay

    • Robin

      You mean this line, right?
      Sima Xian laughed with a pleased sound, “Crushing some flesh with my metallic ball feels so good!”
      Why is it weird?

      • Evilage

        Yeah that line
        well it just does…

        • Robin

          Well, the way he refers to his weapon might sound a little cheesy, but I couldn’t come up with something better. And somehow it fits his character since he sometimes uses some strange names, like Has drugs bro.

          • Luke Confidential

            It would be so much more entertaining if it were a club or mallet of some kind.

            EDIT: It feels so good to crush some flesh with my Mighty Hammer.

          • Evilage

            That just reminds me of thor…
            go! Mjölnir!!!

  • Jonathan Hurd

    So considering Sima Xian’s giant Ball and the link between that and Miley Cyrus’s Wrecking ball I started trying to think of songs that go along with the 21st General DHS members.

    So far I have….

    Sima Xian: Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus
    Yin Er: Cheerleader by OMI
    Hao Yue: Monster by Skillet

    Potential ones I am considering are….

    Lin Xin: Magic Carpet Ride by Steppen Wolf
    Cai’er: Primo Victoria by Sabaton

    Still gotta think of a song cool enough for LHC as well as fitting songs for Han Yu and Wang Yuanyuan.

    • Luke Confidential

      Jon, do you remember Cai-Er’s nighttime visit to Yang Wenzhao? Coupled with her profession I say her themesong is…

      Getting Away With Murder

      • Robin

        I actually like this one better than Primo Victoria.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          I could definetly switch Primo Victoria to Wang Yuanyuan. That would make sense to me.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Another decent choice for Cai’er could be “…To be Loved”

    • ShelfCloud

      I like those songs. But I think for Lin Xin a better choice would be

      Ring of Fire (by Johnny Cash or a cover version)

      • Luke Confidential

        Wrong.

        Lin Xin: “Can’t Touch This.”

        • Psyside

          How can you all be so blind Lin Xin has to be about drugs so “Just One Fix” perfect fit

          • Luke Confidential

            If we’re going all out, then Lin Xin has to be all about his pretentiousness.

            “Rock Star” by Nickelback.

          • Allstarall

            All about Bro-Has-Drugs! We need one for your MC here though.

            I’m thinking ‘sisters of the light’… But that’s a bit too girly? He looks like a girl though..

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Honestly its epic enough, but yeah a little too girly for him I feel. Does well with the holy aspect of him and his girly looks though.

    • Luke Confidential

      Lin Xin: “Can’t Touch This”

  • annahc20z

    great teamwork, Thanks for the chapter 🙂

  • addicted to LN

    Thank you for the chapter! 🙂

  • Psyside

    So i wonder if how will caier cope here. I hope it ends fast and they do another time skip cos having her like this is……

    • Luke Confidential

      She does have the two senses needed to contribute against grunts. Spiritual Sense and Touch.

      She’d be a sitting duck against a boss though.

  • Evilage

    I’ve been waiting for this moment for a while damn, Shen yue doesnt look like how i imagined him

  • Schattenbach

    So … are those two soldier grade squads underleveled and undergeared or are these two general squads overleveled and overgeared?

    • Luke Confidential

      I would say the answer is technically neither for any squad except the Bright Rays of Sunshine, who are definitely overgeared.

      The 22nd might be considered Overgeared for a rookie General Grade squad, but their gear fits right into General Grade.

      On the leveling thing, if we’re going by Grade [the reasonable thing] then none of these squads are under or overleveled [unlike the 8th General Grade Squad which is rather Overleveled, having five members at the 6th step within the General Grade]d

      If we go by time though, the Soldier Grade squads are progressing quite well by normal standards [except for the 7k contribution point setback they took gambling against LHC] but the 21st and 22nd are tearing up the development pace expectations to shreds.

  • Evilage

    4 sponsored chapters
    am i seeing things again?

    • Robin

      What? o.O
      OK, that means work ^^°

      • Luke Confidential

        I’m seeing a pattern. The sponsorship flies during these intense battle events and dries up during the in-betweens.

        • Robin

          Yes, that is definitely the case. And I had told Toto that there probably would be a new queue soon. But it always happens when I think we have worked up a little advance. ^^

          • Evilage

            That and when shit gets real
            like when haochen selected lin xin instead of cai’er
            the suspense almost killed me then

          • Robin

            Yeah, there are evil places for a wait. Like when Cai’er’s father took Haochen onto the battlefield. Then, I couldn’t read the next chapter fast enough to see what would happen next.

          • Evilage

            I’ll admit that
            you just used “evil” on purpose didnt you…..

          • Robin

            You think? 😛
