Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 288


Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 288: Hero (I)

The Moon Demon’s clenched fists ruthlessly struck at Long Haochen’s back. Not even having the spiritual energy left to use the Glorious Set’s Holy Spirit Protection, he could distinctly feel the Holy Armor deforming under the Moon Demon’s punch. Luckily, it was a piece of Glorious Tier equipment, which was why it wasn’t smashed to pieces. But in his current weak state, how could Long Haochen bear such a terrible strike?

The other members of the 21st and 22nd general grade Demon Hunt Squads held their breath, not even daring to close their eyes.

At the time Cai’er was sent flying by Long Haochen, she was at a complete loss. Although, because of having lost four of her senses, she could only sense the surrounding world through her perception and touch, she was only at a complete loss for a split second, before becoming extremely tense. She understood Long Haochen only too well. The only circumstances that would cause Long Haochen to part from her would be a situation where he would be unable to protect her. And furthermore, the fact that Long Haochen cut off the Soul Linking Chains’ connection, only confirmed that Cai’er’s guess was correct.

Tears suddenly streamed from her eyes, as she desperately threw herself to the ground. However, at this time, a pair of vigorous arms hugged her.

It was Wang Yuanyuan.

Although she was well aware that Cai’er couldn’t hear sounds, Wang Yuanyuan still shouted, choked with emotions, “Don’t let his sacrifice be in vain.” They already couldn’t make it in time to rescue Long Haochen, and it was out of trust that he entrusted Cai’er to her. How could she allow Cai’er to let his sacrifice be in vain?

Right then, as everyone believed that Long Haochen was doomed, an incomparably resplendent radiance shot out from Long Haochen’s chest. It lit up and a matchless aura of terror spread from it. The seriously wounded Moon Demon was instantly sent flying by this sudden massive golden glow, and directly flew back for several meters.

“A Divine Tool!” The Moon Demon roared in midair, his black wings suddenly shooting up, he frantically tried to escape without reservation.

All of this happened too fast: Since the time Long Haochen’s Asura Strike wounded the Moon Demon to now, only a few seconds had passed. And at the time the Moon Demon shot up, the members of the 22nd general grade Demon Hunt Squad suddenly dashed forward. Long Haochen was already breathing with difficulty, throwing himself down to Haoyue.

In the instant before he lost consciousness, an imposing voice could be heard, “Who dared harm the successor of the Slumbering Calamity?”

The red-hot feeling in his chest was now at least ten times more powerful than before, and the souls of the dead converged in the Eternal Melody at an astonishing speed.

In the past, Long Haochen had sensed that it was because of his body’s limits that he could only absorb the souls of the dead in a range of two hundred meters. But at this very moment, the Eternal Melody was entirely aroused, due to Long Haochen being wounded. Further accounting his breakthrough to the sixth step, the Eternal Melody started to operate faster, gently absorbing the surrounding souls, while making the support of Long Haochen the soul energy’s highest priority. The pendant enabled Long Haochen to immediately absorb the light energy around him to provide energy to his devitalized body.

Luc Xi madly launched one healing spell after another at Long Haochen, and the others joined him at the greatest speed possible, rapidly surrounding Long Haochen.

Cai’er had already struggled free of Wang Yuanyuan’s restraint, and, driven by the urge of her feelings towards Long Haochen, was the first to join his side.

Cai’er’s body was entirely stiff, and she seemed to have come to a realization, before rapidly gripping Long Haochen’s right hand. After taking his hand, her pale complexion gradually eased up a little. She was the only one who felt the massive soul energy that converged into Long Haochen’s body, while sensing the returning vitality that emerged from it.

Along with the disruption of this soul power, Cai’er noticed to her astonishment that the Dagger of Samsara started to get restless.

After the two Demon Hunt Squads surrounded Long Haochen, they didn’t get attacked by the demons anymore. Long Haochen had managed to successfully suppress, and heavily wound a Moon Demon of the eighth step, and had thus created a favorable situation for their offense. At the same time, the reinforcements from the Southern Mountain’s City had launched their powerful counterattack, driving the demons out of the Southern Mountain’s City.

Suddenly, from the sky, drops of golden radiance descended one after another, appearing as if filled with intelligence. As this rain of light touched the bodies of every living creature, be it humans or demons, a mystic change appeared. Still there was a clear difference: Every human received a comfortable feeling from the touch of those drops of light. They all had incomparable snug reactions, while the tiredness of their bodies disappeared and their wounds slowly healed. But for the demons, every touch caused a real disaster. The rain of light caused them to shriek miserably and from every area of contact, black vapor rose.

This rain of light enveloped almost half of the Southern Mountain’s City, and everyone with the least common sense could tell that this was a holy-type forbidden spell. It was called the Goddess of Light’s Longing.

This forbidden spell was only usable by priests of the ninth step; but even at the ninth step of cultivation, it would be impossible for any knight to use such a terrible group-healing spell.

Upon reaching the ninth step, a priest would be addressed as Saint. For a human Saint to intervene from the sky, the aerial situation at least needed to have stabilized.

An ear-shrieking sound followed the appearance of the golden rain, falling from the sky. Soon, the the radiance coming from the twelve colored Demon God Pillars dimmed greatly, and the distant landscape slowly became blurry.

The current situation was distinct, because the demon side finally started to retreat. Although none of the twelve demon gods died during the battle, the difference in power between both sides was extremely small. Nevertheless, if not for the prompt arrival of the reinforcements, the Southern Mountain’s City would most likely have already fallen.

Long Haochen was still not conscious, but he vaguely felt a burning sensation on his chest. However, this burning sensation didn’t hurt anymore, but was instead very comfortable. The reason why he couldn’t really wake up was, that he was simply too tired. But still, he felt very relaxed in the knowledge that he did act in accordance with his own will, saving at least hundreds of warriors and mages of the Alliance.

He didn’t disappoint his father’s expectations, and wholeheartedly fulfilled his role as a knight.

The members of the 21st and the 22nd general grade Demon Hunt Squads were forming a defensive ring around Long Haochen. Extraordinarily, none of them uttered a single word, and except from Cai’er at his side and Luc Xi, who was performing healing magic on him without pause, the others all had looks filled with determination. Without the slightest doubt, if someone had tried to attack Long Haochen at this moment, he would have had to trample over their dead bodies first.

Long Haochen’s actions enflamed his comrades’ hearts; none of them feared death, and all shared the same determination as Long Haochen.

In the same situation, what should a recently created Demon Hunt Squad, only being at the fifth step of cultivation, do when facing a Moon Demon at the eighth step? Even if this question was asked to the leaders of the Alliance, they would surely tell this Demon Hunt Squad to stay as far away as possible to preserve their lives.

But did Long Haochen do this? No, he didn’t. To ensure the survival of more people, he didn’t make this choice of self-preservation, even though he was unaware of all the consequences of his choice. It could be said that if not for the eerie light that protected him during the last instant, he would already have died on the battlefield.

They didn’t hear the words ‘divine tool’ from the Moon Demon, and didn’t know what this bright light was, but Long Haochen’s miraculous survival caused them to feel ashamed, especially the members from the 22nd general grade Demon Hunt Squad.

At the time they saw the Moon Demon, the six members of the 22nd general grade Demon Hunt Squad were hesitant. At the time they saw Long Haochen make his unhesitant decision, apart from Li Xin, everyone was in complete shock, and didn’t dare to attempt anything. This was also the reason why Li Xin was the only one who could react, taking the attack in Haochen’s stead, whereas the others all were late.

How could they not be ashamed? They also had a set of Conjoined Spiritual Boosting Pills, but didn’t take them out of attachment to their own lives, and out of the terror they felt towards the Moon Demon of the eighth step.

Although Long Haochen later shouted the order not to take them, couldn’t they have been of help to him if they took them before the situation escalated like this?

The reason why Luc Xi was now healing Haochen at all costs, not having any hesitation to over consume his own resources, was to vent all his shameful feelings. He felt extremely unworthy of Long Haochen: if he let him die, as the captain of the 22nd general grade Demon Hunt Squad, he would never be able to forgive himself.

The battle continued, but those two Demon Hunt Squads always stayed in their defensive formation, everyone remaining completely silent.

Cai’er was sitting on the ground, with Long Haochen’s head on her lap to let him feel more comfortable and to stabilize his neck. She already stopped crying, but was still trembling without interruption, feeling extremely regretful. At this very moment, she even thought that she would rather not remain a Demon Hunt Squad member, as long as she could be together with Long Haochen.

The multitudes of radiances that lit the sky gradually dimmed down, and the demon offense was finally pushed away from the Southern Mountain’s City.

The powerhouses of the Temple Alliance returned from the sky one after another, and the survivors were sent to finally clear up the mess below.

After some time passed, some people came to the side of the 21st and the 22nd general grade Demon Hunt Squads. Full of astonishment, the first to come were the 2nd and 3rd soldier grade Demon Hunt Squads. More accurately, they should have become the 1st and 2nd soldier grade Demon Hunt Squads after Long Haochen’s and Luc Xi’s group progressed in grade. But these two teams planned on advancing in grade the fastest possible, and thus didn’t head to the Demon Hunt Mission Tower to modify their identification number.

Yang Wenzhao and Duan Yi, as well as the members of their two Demon Hunt Squads were totally blood-soaked. While the mages were a bit better off, all the close-quarter fighters were wounded.

However, they had sincere and respectful expressions, peacefully arriving at the side of the 21st and the 22nd general grade Demon Hunt Squads, after seeing them being gathered calmly around Long Haochen. Only Yang Wenzhao and Duan Yi advanced further, murmuring a few words to Luc Xi’s ears, before appearing relieved after getting the confirmation of the safety of Long Haochen’s life.


  • Dawnyaaa

    Huu..thank you but did i broke the thing by F5 it..i’ve got a weird wall of text..

    • Robin

      This happens sometimes for me too, if I load the site anew. But it usually regulates itself right afterwards.

  • addicted to LN

    thank for the chapter!that “Who dared harm the successor of the Slumbering Calamity?” dialogue!!!dam necromancer!!!hell yeah!!!

    • Dawnyaaa

      Is that really the necromancer thingy? Honestly i thought it was his throne..
      Well it’s cool whatsoever it is.

  • addicted to LN

    thank for the chapter!that “Who dared harm the successor of the Slumbering Calamity?” dialogue!!!dam necromancer!!!hell yeah!!!

    • Dawnyaaa

      Is that really the necromancer thingy? Honestly i thought it was his throne..
      Well it’s cool whatsoever it is.

      • Robin

        Which throne? No one involved in this battle against the Moon Demon has a Divine Throne.

        • Dawnyaaa

          Well, you know we don’t really know how the whole throne stuff works for sure..at first when i read it first things that came to my mind was “his future throne” is protecting him lol.

          But it is probably the necromancy stuff..i tend to fantasize too much..

          • Robin

            The Slumbering Calamity is clearly Elux, so no confusion there. I am rather sure he will gain a throne later on, but until then it would be confusing and illogical to bring one into the story.

          • Evilage

            What if the throne has something to do with necromancy?
            that would be cool and would explain why no one was able to sit on the frist throne

          • Robin

            It is a possibility, but still, the throne would not start talking in the middle of a massive battle. 😛

          • Evilage

            No no, i’m not talking about the throne talking
            it was never stated that the thrones have their own will
            anyways it would be awesome if it was related to necromancy and at the last moment the throne mixed with the divine artifact he has right now

          • Robin

            I like this thought.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I think it was stated that the thrones have their own will. If I remember back to the conversation with the Demon God Slayers. The Knight of the Demon God Slayers said that he was chosen by 4 of the thrones and advised LHC to follow their will.

            To be fair it would be pretty funny if the thrones are connected to Necromancy, but the other possibility is that no one has come around that meets the first thrones qualifications. They have stated throughout the story that LHC is the first Scion of Light to ever be born in the Temple Alliances history.

          • Evilage

            i dont think the thrones needs to have a will to select chose their master
            it could be something similar to a computer program? Giving the oppotunity to everyone who satisfies the conditions

            Yes he is the first scion of light, but it isnt sure that he would be able to sit in the first throne due to this reason, what if knowing holy necromancy is a condition to sit on the throne?
            i feel like everything happens for a reason in this novel, errm like how one thing will lead to the other( from everything that happens(like destiny or somthing)) so i think that necromancy will serve a inportant factor even when he get the throne

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Oh there is definitely connections to everything. It might be interesting to also see the relationship between Necromancers and the thrones. Honestly I have always been a little confused why Knights have the thrones. I mean they are a melee Specialization and they have to sit on it. It seems to make way more sense for a caster type to be relying on these things because they can cast spells from it and be protected from it. Imo, a Necromancer using one makes perfect sense since he could use it to buff his minions and protect himself the weak link for summoners like necromancers usually.

          • Robin

            I found this strange as well. It somehow takes the impact out of a battle if one party is comfortably sitting on a throne…

          • Evilage

            Maybe they ride it like a horse? Imagine a chair with moving legs(actual legs)

          • Robin

            This is a funny but hilarious thought. I just saw Haochen’s father riding his Divine Throne through the sky…

          • Evilage

            I laughed harder than i shouldve

          • Robin

            😛

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I have to admit that line had me cheering at my computer screen for a good 5 minutes. I think my neighbors are going to give me weird looks…. but it was so worth it.

  • normal guy

    that title seems to give too much away!
    also, HELL YEAH NECROMANCY!!!!!!!!

    • addicted to LN

      HELL YEAH!!!

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Welcome to my world also…. HELL YEAH!!!

        • Evilage

          Make a necromancy sect!

  • AnarchyDev

    Can we really say that the other members action was not the best action? Mc is the most talented guy with the hope of defeating the demon gods, but if he really lost his life here only, then what will happen to the bigger picture of human side winning the war?

    He’s just a fool to risk his life (plot armor will come to the rescue), but that’s what makes a true Hero I guess..

    Thanks for the chapter.

    • Evilage

      Well they dont know that haochen and cai’er have innate talents above 90 so i doubt they would risk their life for saving him
      on your other statement that haochen is a fool… if he didnt risk his life haochen would be out of character, thats like making a character white at the start and turning him black later on
      (Not trying to be racist, best example i could think of right now)

      • Robin

        I would say “doesn’t matter if you’re black or white”. But I totally agree with your argument and example.

        • Evilage

          Well i am not racist either
          how can i be? I’m south asain and my skin color is practically tan( niether white nor black)

          • Robin

            Nice, right in the middle. Sometimes this is the most attractive mixture. 😉

          • Evilage

            Haha
            yah, “sometimes”
            if only this country wasnt hot
            well, i guess we arent called the sunny side of life for no reason

          • Robin

            I wouldn’t say no to a little more warmth and sunshine… *looking out of the window*

          • Evilage

            You would if you live here….

          • Robin

            *pout*
            We can exchange places, we have cudly 0° celsius right now. How about it?

          • Evilage

            i would love to
            i’ve havent exprienced cold weather yet
            have fun with 32°C everyday and thats just average

          • Robin

            Where the hell are you living? I am coming right away! 😉

          • Evilage

            Snow… arr i wanna see it
            i’ve never seen snow in my entire life(One of my life goals)
            i live in the maldives
            With sea surrounding me & beaches it wouldnt be so bad if it wasnt this hot
            if you decide to come dont come to the capital
            its just overcrowded and overpriced

          • Robin

            The Maledives? I am sooooo jealous. I would love to go there sometime. 😀

          • Sarlisark

            well now you know someone at whose place you can stay for free.

          • Robin

            Yeah, the amazing possibilities of modern technology.
            I would love to change snow against beaches and the sea. I am a termophilic creature and need warmth and the sun. 😉

          • Evilage

            Well resorts are awesome(even if i go there from time to time)
            And island is comfortable excluding the slow internet speed which has a download speed of around 247 bytes/sec
            the city sucks
            never come to the capital

          • Robin

            I will take your advice to heart. I detest big touristic areas anyway, so if i come to the Maledives, I will surely look for a nice and small area.

          • Robin

            If you want to see snow, this is the look out of my window. ^^

          • Evilage

            Oh gawd snow ~

          • Robin

            And a LOT!

          • Evilage

            You arent the only one who can make someone jealous

          • Robin

            No? Now I want a pic of an amazing beach. 😛

          • Evilage

            Go to any island in the maldives and take a picture

          • Robin

            Since I can’t, why don’t you show me one?

          • Evilage

            Well its 4 in the morning so….no

          • Robin

            Yeah, I just checked the time difference. But later would be possibe. 😀

          • Robin

            Wow, you have won hands down. Now I am really jealous. ^o^

          • Sarlisark

            year average, day(24h) average, or day average(12h)bettween dawn and dusk? also at the moment or always?

          • Evilage

            At night right now at 12 am the temperature is 30°C
            mostly its between 33-34°C these days
            so imagine this heat

          • Sarlisark

            uncomfortable, at least at night. On days it is the kind of weather, where I decide to just bask in the sun reading/sleeping or doing my exercises.

          • Evilage

            well its really uncomfortable when you are studying or going somewhere( since the capital is small(around 2km) people dont use cars too much and walk) walking in such heat is difficult, if i go out for 5 minutes i come back sweaty
            but its funny how i never had a heatstroke or a papercut(papercut was irrelevant wasnt it)

          • Robin

            I am sure if you live there, your body adapts to the climate. The heat alone is not the bad thing, i guess, the humidity is what makes it hard to bear.
            Well, maybe I will really travel the 14h by plane to your area some time. I heard from my dad that the beaches and the sea are amazing.
            It is fun to correspond with so many different time zones.

          • Sarlisark

            yeah it kind of was, but well I also never had one though living in Germany and all it normally only gets upto 36 °C in summer with tops at 42°, though we do have winters with temp below -12°
            Though how did heatstroke and papercut come together i am kind of wondering

          • Robin

            Hey, a papercut is a serious matter! 😉
            I guess a heat stroke would be a common occurrence among tourists but a little mundane for locals. As mundane as a papercut.
            I don’t know in which part of Germany you live, but we already had two weeks with constant temperatures of -20°. Our river was completely frozen, it was kind of fun.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I agree with this as well. Part of what makes LHC so admirable is that he is willing to step in front of enemies he has honestly no business facing. No one is going to disagree that it is suicidal. Even LHC himself has stated that he gave up on returning alive, but it is like back when LHC had to choose between running away from the three demon Gods or helping Cai’er’s father in Exorcist Mountain Pass. If he does walk away to protect himself then he would no longer be the kind of knight he wants to be.

  • Evilage

    wow elux did save him
    Thou no necromancy
    i can imagine how disapointed jonathan would be…

    • Robin

      Because there were no flashy skeletons involved? XD

  • Evilage

    wow elux did save him
    Thou no necromancy
    i can imagine how disapointed jonathan would be…

    • Robin

      Because there were no flashy skeletons involved? XD

      • Evilage

        Exactly xD
        he wants to see skeletons as much as i want to see haochen become the overlord of all races
        (No offense intended)

        • Robin

          No offense taken. Let’s wait and see about your favorit scheme. 😉
          Well, yeah, but as I said, flashy skeletons would rub the Alliance the other way too hard. Especially in such a battle. It would be a lot wiser to slowly introduce the idea of the use of necromancy to them.

          • addicted to LN

            Maybe no ordinary skeleton but dead powerhouses instead?
            If necromancy abilities at all step of the vocation are all about skeleton, that would be lame.

          • Robin

            He didn’t appear in person, so not much danger of exposure. Skeletons really are a bit too cliché, I guess…

          • Evilage

            Necromancy mean undead
            who knows
            vampires?
            Edward cullen can kill the DGE with his shininess

          • Robin

            … NO

          • Evilage

            Just imagine it?
            during the last fight with huge armies on both sides, edward cullen comes to the middle and takes of his cloths under the sunlight
            then bam! Both humans and demons become extint

          • Robin

            Hell NO, stop putting dreadful pictures in my head!

          • Luke Confidential

            It’s only sort of dreadful because of the shitty writing of the Source Material of that particular Vamp.

            But the principle of a Sparkling Vampire fits right into a setting with Holy Necromancy.

          • Robin

            True enough, I can’t even argue with that. But still, the idea is simply hilarious.

          • Evilage

            Well i think his shininess can even beat austin griffin who all demons fear xD

          • Robin

            Only in your head. ^_^

            You guys enjoy teasing me, don’t you?

          • Evilage

            I like teasing everyone
            but it isnt so good when some people dont fet my jokes and end up being hostile to me xD( happens a lot, exprience speaking)

          • Robin

            No worries, usually I can take many jokes as far as they are not hostile or mean themselves. And some bickering is always fun. 😉

          • Evilage

            If only everyone was like you

          • Robin

            Well, I guess I am one of a kind. 😉

          • Jonathan Hurd

            The world would be a better place then.

          • Robin

            Thanks, that’s sweet. 😉

          • Evilage

            Yah just name everyone “Robin”

          • Robin

            Well, Robin Hood, Robin the partner of Batman, Robin from One Piece. There are many famous ones. XD

          • Jonathan Hurd

            You know… now I’m conflicted. On one hand I want to see Holy Vampires…. on the other hand if LHC starts summoning Twlight Vampires even his awesomeness credit might suffer…

          • Luke Confidential

            Elux is so badass he can undo the damage that horrible piece of fiction did and redeem sparkling vampires.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I don’t know whether I should be sad or happy it took me a few hours and two looks to realize who Edward cullen was….

          • Robin

            Hahahaha, really?

          • ShelfCloud

            Definitely happy. You saved yourself a lot of suffering….

          • Evilage

            Be happy
            you should be happy as pattrick(dunno if i spelled it right(from spongebob))

          • Robin

            *lol* This comparison is absurd but funny.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Yeah I completely agree with this idea too. LHC needs to become a bit more famous before he reveals he is a Necromancer too. If he did it now when he is relatively unknown there would be an amazing deal of people willing to kill him to nip that in the bud. Thanks to this and maybe a few more fights his reputation will probably be strong enough that no one in the army will want to lose him.

          • VVFG

            But if the exsistence of the pendant be known there is a chance LHC gonna be Priest enemies, the pendant its self created from theirs strongest pop bone right..

        • Jonathan Hurd

          I am admittedly still going to be so happy once we finally get to see LHC pull out some skeletons, but seeing Elux’s interference was pretty awesome as well, hehe. Also knowing that the skull is a Divine Artifact is pretty damn cool.

          After that happens my theme song will be Happy by Pharrell, hehe.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I don’t know I am partially just so happy that I predicted Elux’s interference correctly.

      • Luke Confidential

        Ahem. I predicted the interference of Eternal Melody correctly.

        We don’t know if Elux is actually directly involved or in total stasis.

        • Robin

          Since the pendant is unable to talk, I think we can rightfully assume that the one speaking was Elux.

          • Luke Confidential

            Unless the Pendant has a few recordings for various If/Then scenarios preprogrammed that is.

            Similar to how Elux had pre-programmed Eternal Rest to give that message by virtue of his visage and voice when a successor appeared.

          • Robin

            Haha, I like the idea. Like Kuro from K with his recordings from his former master Ichigen. ^__^

            It seemed to be a sort of projection Haochen met inside the tower, but I am not sure if it doesn’t contain more than a recording.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          I’m still counting this as a win, :D.

    Thanks for the chapter!
    Thanks Totobro and Sponsors.

  • Koon Agnis

    “Who dared harm the successor of the Slumbering Calamity?” Omg I said this in the deepest voice possible inside my head and I really don’t know why.
    Also thank you for the chapter!

    • Cas Goldsmith

      badass

      I’m starting to like this guy

      • Evilage

        I’m here wondering whether you are talking about the commentator koon agnis(name taken from tog btw) or elux the necromancer

    • Alex Drake

      Don’t worry. I did the same!

      • Leif Svensson-Chorin

        Me 2

    • Gift Giver

      From this day on we will have to expect LHC to have a dual vocation of Holy Knight Necromancer

      • Leif Svensson-Chorin

        Why has no one up voted this?
        Come on! We are all thinking it.
        Well, here is my vote anyway.

  • Zeth

    Thank you Totobro and sponsors!

  • VanillaCustardPie

    Thank you~

  • ALHoward

    Thank you for the chapter! I know he wasn’t going to die but man, he came so close! You went far beyond a knight’s duty Haochen! YOU’RE A BOSS! The intensity of this chapter, OMGGG!

  • Robin

    But on this note, weren’t the Demon God Pillars divine tools as well? They give power to the demon gods and protect them. Wouldn’t that mean that Divine Melody is something like Haochen’s personal Demon God Pillar? I like that thought!

    • Sarlisark

      the thrones are some as well and so on…
      basically it is just the name for the best possible equipments in existence, and yeah his necklace is one of them

      • Robin

        Of course the thrones are some as well. This is why having a throne helps making you an equal to the DGs. But Haochen already having a divine tool opens some possibilities in this regard. It could enable him to face a DG even long before receiving a Divine Throne.

        • ShelfCloud

          This is possible. And to add to that: wasn’t the dagger of Cai’er a divine tool, too?

          • Robin

            I am not completely sure about the dagger. I think the dagger was rather comparable with Bright Rain, Hibiscus of Light. One reason why they gave it to Haochen was, to equalize with the Assassin Temple in regard of their ace’s equipment.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I think Cai’er’s dagger is indeed near if not at Divine Tool level as long as its paired with the Spiritual Stove of Samsara. I would say the reason the dagger hasn’t really shown any amazing abilities yet is that she is too weak to really bring out its power. Same goes for LHC with his Eternal Melody. To truly utilize their powers I think both of them will need to be at least 8th step if not 9th.

            To be fair at this point I think Bright Rain, Hibiscus of Light could also be called a Divine Tool. It freaking grows with its user and seeing what happened when LHC poured 10k spiritual energy into it…. I am looking forward to what happens after another evolution or two and when he can pour even more in.

            What I am curious about is the mention of the Dagger of Samsara getting restless. From what we know the Dagger and Stove of Samsara they work off of Death and Destruction elements. We also know that Elux’s Tower is filled with death energy and it is absorbing souls. I wonder if LHC will eventually be able to maybe use Eternal Melody to help Cai’er fuel her Spiritual Stove of Samsara potentially instead of giving a sense.

          • Robin

            This is an interesting idea. Remember, there was another opportunity where the Dagger of Samsara became restless and even fearful. After the first fusion of Haochen and Haoyue, their combined power made the Dagger and Stove itchy as well.

          • Evilage

            Who says they arent divine tools?
            that or maybe divine tools are things left by the previous races and humans ?

          • ShelfCloud

            Found it!

            “The Spiritual Stove of Samsara is extremely powerful. Especially with the divine artifact ‘Dagger of Samsara’”

            (Chapter 166).

            So the dagger is really a divine tool and from everything that was said before I also assume that Hibiscus of Light will defenitely become one as well in the end. After all it was stated that its limits are unknown.

          • Robin

            Good job looking it up!

          • Evilage

            Toto should change divine tool to divine artifact since its much more Awesome

          • Robin

            True enough. I am sure he forgot which term he used before. Which isn’t surprising at all. After almost 300 chaps, I need to check more and more terms to keep the same names. ^^°

          • Evilage

            Yah almost 300 chaps so around 700 more to go….
            3 or 4 years i guess?

          • Robin

            Probably. I would need to look it up, but I think I read somewhere that Toto will have a jubilee soon. One year of translating. ^^

          • Evilage

            Wait wont this be the second year?
            i remember reading about chap 120 around this time last year

          • Robin

            Check the diary, it says 3/9/15 first chap of SWYZ. We all missed the jubilee. ^__^

          • Luke Confidential

            May as well stick with Divine Tool, it’s a term this author uses in Douluo Dalu and that’s the phrasing being translated there as well.

          • Robin

            Well, this is six as one and half a dozen of another. Both mean the same thing so it is just a matter of sticking with one way of translating it.

          • Luke Confidential

            Indeed. I just figured ‘sticking with one way of translating’ in alignment with D.D. was a good idea.

          • Robin

            It is, but different novel, different translater. Personally I like Divine Artifact more because it sounds cool and is more accurate since in SWYZ those items are handed down from long ago, which makes them artifacts of a lost culture. Even though items like the Shroud are similar, Divine Tool sounds more accurate in a world where Spirit Tools can still be produced. Some of them will probably be Divine Tools in the future. But in SWYZ the knowledge to produce such things seems to be lost.

          • Psyside

            I think that the dager quality grows with caiers growth same as LHC blue hibiscus

          • Stephen_H

            I like your thinking, with his new necromancy ability it should compliment the death attribute (I assume) of the Dagger of Samsara

          • addicted to LN

            Or maybe Haochen and friends will search for spiritual stoves that can counter the side effects of Spiritual Stove of Samsara when used by Cai’er. It was mentioned in prior chapters that such stoves exist.

  • lordcattank

    Thanks for the chapter! Man was that battle epic I wonder if any of the saints fighting the demon gods noticed the Eternal Melody
