Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 285


Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 285: Moon Demon of the Eighth Step VS Radiant Haochen (I)

A handsome man appeared out of nowhere in the middle of the battlefield. That’s right, his appearance was exactly the same as a human, the only difference being his pair of purple eyes. Clad in a black outfit looking luxurious, with many dark purple symbols on it, his collar was turned up and hid his neck.

His skin was extremely pale, and he had a handsome appearance. His pair of slim white hands was spread to the two sides of his body, producing two purple black spherical balls. He shot them from his slender fingers, aiming right at the crowds of the Six Great Temples. Black fog erupted from the explosion of his violent attack.

Long Haochen’s group was at a close distance from this handsome man, thus becoming a target of his purple black colored spheres. Raising his shield and putting Holy Shield to use, Long Haochen took his unenviable responsibility of stopping this purple blackish ball’s explosion.

However, this black-clad youth was just too strong. A mere little purple black colored ball almost sent Long Haochen flying, and the Glorious Holy Shield was not only damaged despite the use of Holy Shield, its main part even looked a bit burned.

What kind of strength is that? Everyone turned pale with fright, making haste to get into formation and a great amount of defensive spells covered Long Haochen.

Perhaps others wouldn’t have recognized the clan affiliation of this human-looking black-clad man, but how could Long Haochen not recognize? Regardless of whether this was based on his appearance or his clothes, this was clearly an authentic powerhouse of the Moon Clan, and one at the eighth step at that.

On the battlefield, this was the first time Long Haochen’s group confronted an enemy at the eighth step.

Looking at him, Long Haochen couldn’t help but ponder deeply. This kind of powerhouse of the eighth step from the Moon Clan should be fighting in the air, but this black-clad youth joined the battle on the ground. This simply implied that in the air, the number of demons was abundant, which could be no good thing for the Temple Alliance as well as the Southern Mountain’s City.

The youth from the Moon Clan looked at them, filled with disdain. He simply stayed at the same place, motionless, and bombarded them with his purple black colored balls, continuously reaping human lives.

Many attacks of human mages were launched against him, but were blocked by a simple defensive shield that he released, easily rendering them useless.
  

In a few short breaths, he had already massacred close to a hundred humans.

Long Haochen suddenly turned back, giving a look to his comrades. Everyone gave him a determined and resolute look.

“Han Yu, what are the ten standards of a knight?” Long Haochen suddenly shouted loudly.

Han Yu replied loudly without hesitation, “Modesty, honesty, compassion, courage, fairness, sacrifice, honor, perseverance, charity, righteousness.”

Long Haochen clenched his teeth, “Follow me.” Saying this, he put two pills in his mouth, carrying a determined look, approaching that Moon Demon of the eighth step with large strides.

When Long Haochen took this first step, the twelve people behind him, including Cai’er on his back, all felt Long Haochen’s determined resolution. They felt from the depths of their hearts that Long Haochen was a real knight!

In that instant, Long Haochen didn’t have honor in mind, neither benefit, but just thought of doing his utmost to resist the Moon Demon’s attack, so that more of the warriors and mages of the Temple Alliance would stay alive. That was his sole purpose.

This was not about facing difficulty, but purely facing death without fear. With every step he took, Long Haochen’s aura became more imposing, rapidly bringing out the effects of the Bloodthirsty Pill and the Spiritual Bursting Pill. A dense golden light continuously rushed forth from his body, and at this very instant, Long Haochen’s chest seemed to be burning to the limit, while the red-hot feeling immediately spread to his whole body.

In his chest, the Saint Spiritual Stove seemed to disappear together with the Eternal Melody. Instead, the effect of a black hole, madly surging in all the light element in his surroundings, manifested.

A divine energy rushed forth from Long Haochen’s body like a volcanic eruption, and a blazing sunlight fire immediately ascended from it. A pair of golden wings unfolded at his back, close to his shoulders.

Condensed spiritual energy. That was it, the condensed spiritual energy that was the symbol of a Radiant Knight of the sixth step.

Who would have expected Long Haochen to have a breakthrough at such a moment. This breakthrough didn’t rely on the power of the Bloodthirsty Pill and the Spiritual Bursting Pill, but on the combination of his determination, the effects of Eternal Melody and the Saint Spiritual Stove.

It had already been a few months since he reached this critical point, and those months of cultivation could be said to have led to this moment. Long Haochen had already accumulating all the spiritual energy he needed for this breakthrough. And at his time, the determination in him grew to the peak, choosing to face the enormous pressure brought by the Moon Demon of the eighth step. The spiritual energy in his body burst forth at this time, finally breaking past the bottleneck of the sixth step. Right before this suicidal battle, his cultivation reached the level of a Radiant Knight of the sixth step.

The Scion of Light’s capacity wasn’t only his genius of understanding, but also his willpower and his extremely pure heart.

Each of Long Haochen’s condensed wings was a meter and a half long, spreading from his back, but not affecting Cai’er because they were made of pure energy.

At the sixth step, everyone would have differences in their spiritual wings. Long Haochen’s spiritual wings were extremely unusual. On his entirely resplendent golden wings, there seemed to be countless little glints of the sun. Each of the spiritual energy feathers was extremely distinct, and the instant his wings unfolded, the light essence in the air seemed to flock to them, as if coming back to its source. The dazzling wings illuminated at least a scope of a hundred meters, making it impossible for them to go unnoticed by others. All friendly forces in this range felt at that time that their spiritual energy recovered, and that their wounds healed a little.

Long Haochen’s eyes glinted brilliantly, and his black hair also became golden colored. At this time, he gave off a unique sensation. It was as if, as long as he would be present, all darkness would disperse from the area.

The Moon Demon immediately felt Long Haochen’s presence, unconsciously turning around. When he saw the intense golden wings on Long Haochen’s back, his face was immediately filled with a loathing expression. With a cold snort, he headed towards Long Haochen’s direction and aimed a punch in the air, immediately launching a black light wave of a third of meter in diameter at Long Haochen.

Long Haochen didn’t avoid it. With the boost from the Spiritual Bursting Pill and the Bloodthirsty Pill, and with his new advancement to the realm of a Radiant Knight, he felt as if he was filled with unlimited spiritual energy. The Brilliant Holy Shield in his hand suddenly disappeared, and welcoming this attack, two swords were wielded, launching an Asura Strike. This was unexpectedly an Asura Strike launched against another Asura Strike.

A golden colored illumination immediately spread in the air, and this golden radiance spread over three meters onwards, carrying an ear-piercing hissing sound just like the one that originally erupted from the Desolate Hissing Cavern, shaking the whole battlefield.

This black light wave was directly sliced in two in front of Long Haochen’s Asura Strike, and produced an intense explosion. Its force struck against the ground on the two sides behind him. The traces of the explosion extended over five meters diameter.

“Eh?” The Moon Demon gave Long Haochen a surprised look. Although the illumination that was emitted from Long Haochen’s two wings was intense, he could clearly feel with his cultivation being at the eighth step that he was merely facing a human knight at the sixth step of cultivation and no more. Being only at the sixth step, how could he face his attacks?

The Brilliant Holy Shield appeared again in Long Haochen’s left hand, meanwhile a silvery white radiance bubbled out from his chest. The Moon Demon planned to avoid it, but discovered that he couldn’t. As it reached him, the silvery white radiance attached to his body, and connected the two of them like a bridge.

This was the Saint Spiritual Stove’s new ability after having just evolved. At the same time Long Haochen’s cultivation broke through to the sixth step, his Saint Spiritual Stove had also completed it’s second evolution.

The Alliances powerhouses around him that were being beaten down couldn’t help but cheer loudly, filled with excitement.  

The arrival of the Moon Demon at the eighth step was a disaster for them. But during this time of crisis, a human knight, releasing spiritual wings, appeared on the battlefield. The fact that he resisted the attack of this Moon Demon and managed to use the Saint Spiritual Stove implied, that this Moon Demon was temporarily unable to launch any attacks against the counterattacking human forces. Filled with a growing energy, they charged madly at the demons in front of them.

“Hmpf.” The Moon Demon’s purples eyes were filled with a cold look, and his body flashed, appearing like a purple bolt in the air, unconsciously arriving directly in front of Long Haochen. Still without any weapon, his fist directly aimed at Long Haochen.

A series of rumbles could be heard from his punch dealt in his direction. In an instant, Long Haochen was already cloaked in eight layers of magic surrounding his body, and each of them was at the fifth step. They came from the joined act of Haoyue, Han Yu, Lin Xin, Luc Xi as well as Yi Jun.

The strength of the Moon Demon at the eighth step was indeed brutal, but in front of eight defensive spells, it was still be weakened to some extent.

Bowing forward and using Divine Obstruction, Long Haochen suddenly stepped forward, while the spiritual wings at his back increased in brightness. The sunlight fire condensed on his Brilliant Holy Shield and the Holy Shield ability that was launched directly from it were used to the maximum extent once again.

In a violent explosion, Long Haochen was still pushed eight steps back, barely standing straight. A golden illumination suddenly covered the body of the seven members of the 21st Demon Hunt Squad.

With the absolute power resulting from the eighth step of cultivation, the existing gap was still immense. Even if his cultivation finally reached the sixth step and he took two instantaneous boosting pills, he was still beaten back. If not for the Soul Sharing Shackles’ effects, this mere attack would even have caused him to be seriously wounded.

This won’t do, we won’t be able to block his attacks.

At the same time Long Haochen’s body was pushed back, in his hand, Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light rapidly drew a symbol in the air, launching Wiping Demon Flash. The myriad of its radiances managed to slow down the speed of the Moon Demon.

Seeing this symbol, Wang Yuanyuan, Sima Xian, Han Yu, Lin Xin, took a pill, and on Long Haochen’s back, Cai’er did exactly the same. Meanwhile, Long Haochen immediately swallowed two other pills, an Energetic Pill and a Conjoined Spiritual Boosting Pill.

  • Xias

    Thanks for the chapter.

    But how can Cai´er react to that symbol while she is still blind and deaf?

    • SaberWolf

      She still has the ability to ‘feel’. I’m guessing that, for the battle, she boosted up her sense of touch so as to feel what was going on around her (at least within the limit of knowing large movements by Long Houchen.)

      • Jonathan Hurd

        She can also sense Spiritual Energy and she is attached to LHC so she could of felt the movement of the signal by being so close to him.

    Holy shit, this is so awesome!

  • IwasThere

    For some reason i keep thinking that haochen is part of the demons dragon clan from his mother side ever since they introduced the dragon god.

  • Captain Facts

    Poppin drugs left and right

    • Luke Confidential

      Bro-has-drugs bitches.

  • Evilage

    Ha! my something is gonna happen tingling was right on cue
    supersayain 3 wow
    this…..
    dragon cry… haoyue? or just haochen being a dragonblood warrior?

    • Jonathan Hurd

      My money is on the fusion between Hao Yue and LHC. I wonder if with LHC’s new promotion he will be boosted up to 7th step or even higher with the fusion and the massive influx of energy from his teammates.

      • Evilage

        that or like linley haochen finally awakened his dragon side
        well jokes aside maybe he awoke is demon side? if our theories of him being related to the DGE is true.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          To be fair he does have Hao Yues blood running in him. So it is not that much of a stretch to call him a dragon blood warrior.

          • Luke Confidential

            And then we find out that Tang and I Eat Tomatoes are best buds and IET gave Tang permission to have Austin Griffon’s water head be THE Azure Dragon either as a precarnation or a reincarnation.

      • Allstarall

        Hoping for Holy Sun Light Sicon Dragon Demon God Angel.

    • Stephen_H

      same thing i thought, did he just go Super Sayain?

      • Evilage

        Fu-Sion-HA!

  • Blaxus

    Jesus Christ things just went from a hunna to a thousand real quick in this chapter! Hopefully Haoyue also evolves soon. Thanks for the chapter btw!

  • Blaxus

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Well to be fair he only finished evolving to the 6th step a little while after LHC got to 5th step. So now that LHC is 6th step I think that will probably be the next big event especially since they are probably going to be completely worn out after this giant fight.

      • Luke Confidential

        I’d like to see some friendly rivalry between Austin Griffon and the Saint Daughter of Slaughter… I mean Samsara for the next breakthrough.

        Too bad she’s got no senses and can’t participate. ~I will not allow that beast to reach my lover’s level before me!~

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Well it will be 5 Hao Yue heads against one Cai’er fighting for LHC’s attention. Hao Yue does have the numbers advantage, but Cai’er has female anatomy on her side. It will be a close and heated battle that one…

  • addicted to LN

    • Dragon

      Agreed and I am totally ok with that

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Ditto.

    • felix

      See no problem here. 😀

    • Evilage

      Its the other way around
      Son goku was based on the monkey king that is from china
      so…

      • normal guy

        well looks like a full circle was completed maybe

  • Dragon

    Ok I am a little confused Hao Yu was previously said to be at the 6 step almost 7th so why is he only using moves of the 5th step? Is it cuz LHC was at the 5th step if so that seems to be abit strange can someone clear this up for me.

    • Robin

      Will be explained in the next chap.

    • Schattenbach

      Magical beast rankings are different from the rankings of human/demon powerhouses … magical beasts of the 6th step are usually only equal to human/demon powerhouses of the 5th step oif cultivation, ecetera …

    • Sarlisark

      hao yu beast of 6th step , and beasts are approximately one step above their highest abilities. So beasts of 6th step equal humans of 5th.
      Think about it like this, a beast has got more war potential becuasee of claws/stronger body/flying abilities etc. so a human without those abilities and equipment would need ot be one step higher.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I think you have it mixed up there. The Magical Beasts have natural ability but there is a pretty distinct limit to it. So for a magical beast to equal a human the magical beast needs to be one step higher of their system. A more fair comparison is honestly between Demons and Magical Beasts because they work in a closer system than humans do. Humans all start at zero and go up from there improving by cultivating their power. Demons and magical beasts for the most part are born at a certain power level and then if extremely lucky can evolve further. The difference between these demons and Magical Beasts though is that the demons are naturally more powerful to start therefore the system requires the Magical Beast to be a step above to equal them.

        We should also keep in mind that in almost all things Hao Yue is an exception to the rule. Most magical beasts at most can use one or two spells themselves. Hao Yue can cast spells like a human mage and has shown no limit in his spell selection. Most magical beasts only have one or two elements at 6th and lower step. The only magical beasts that have three or more elements are around the 8th step. Hao Yue has three already at 6th step and is getting more. Most magical beasts only develop serious intellect at around 7th or 8th step. Hao Yue has been fairly intelligent even as a 2nd step beast.

        All in all if your looking at Hao Yue then it is more fair to say that he himself kind of defies the system since he by himself at the 6th step is stronger than about any 5th step human. Especially considering even LHC admitted he probably couldn’t beat him in a one on one fight.

  • felix

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • dreamer

    So our MC always fight enemy 2 step higher now…
    When he was 4th step he fight 5th step dark green dual blade demon with difficulties. Let say that that time his team mate is not that strong and his equipment isn’t that good either.

    5th step vs 7th step bloodthirsty beta, fiend lord, dual headed eagle.

    6th step vs 8th step moon demon

    Going by this patern when he reach 8 step he may be able to fight DGE right who is at peak of 9th step or 10th step (idk which one) with some more overpowered team and equipment. It sure is fast…

    • Luke Confidential

      This might be an indicator that Shengmo Dalu is only the tip of the iceburg of this story.

      I’m getting shades of Linley from this chapter [what with the breakthrough mid-fucking-battle and all. Though LHC has a whole team of companions in addition to his Bonded Companion.]

      • Evilage

        isnt most wuxia and xianxia novels like this? Fighting enemies a few steps stronger than them and winning
        atleast most i’ve read or am reading are like this

  • Psyside

    FUCKING CALLED IT 8th step demon 😛
    And dam moon clan. His demon waifu will be impresed when he kills a 8th step of her clan

    • Evilage

      His waifu is cai’er
      the other one is just a concubine

      • Luke Confidential

        Wrong.

        One is the Saint Daughter of Samsara, the other is the future 2nd rank Demon God [or possibly a random rank demon god if the passing down of a Demon Pillar does little directly for the strength of its recipient and ranking is based on the recipients total power compared to others].

        They are both wives, one for each world to which Haochen belongs.

        • Evilage

          Yeah you are probably right
          haochen the overlord
          raise youngman to the heavens as a legend(cruel angels thesis)

          • Psyside

            One demon waifu and one human waifu

  • ZaX

    It’s time to duel! Thanks for the chapter

    • Jeminy

      You got it wrong there. You’re supposed to say: “It’s time…to d-d-d-duel!”
      (Yugi-oh reference…sorry, couldn’t help myself there)

  • Majk

    Im probably alone on this but I hope that LHC won’t kill/defeat this guy since he is already OP as hell and I want him (and his team since they are using the pills that make their powers) to show some weakness in battle at least when he is facing someone like this. After all this guy is 2 steps over LHC and since the power difference between the steps gets bigger the higher you go this should be way harder for LHC then when he fought the fiend lord at the 7th step despite him just getting to the 6th step.

    I dont want him to lose but maybe make it so that he will be able to buy enough time for someone to help him. LHC won’t be arrogant no matter what because he is the Scion of Light but I dont want anyone on his team to have an even bigger hubris than they already have (Its also possible that I just got through a manga where the main cast would only lose meninges battles but was invincible every other time and that made me hate them which I dont want to happen here).

    • Blaxus

      You were right, you are alone on this.

      • Majk

        T.T
