Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 289


Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 289: Hero (II)

After arriving on the battlefield, the four Demon Hunt Squads had been separated by a short distance, and everyone could see the scene of Long Haochen defying the Moon Demon. Deep inside, Yang Wenzhao had always been keeping the same pride as the one Han Yu had before losing to Haochen. The only difference was that he appeared steadier than the Han Yu of that time, and concealed it a lot better than him. However, he now finally found out how cheap his pride was. When he saw the Moon Demon of the eighth step, all he thought about was to save his team from damage, whereas Long Haochen faced him head on.

Yang Wenzhao had already been admiring Long Haochen’s strength, but only now did he understand that it wasn’t only in strength that he was losing against Long Haochen.

After the two soldier grade Demon Hunt Squads, the next ones to follow were those from the 8th general grade Demon Hunt Squad. They were in the same situation as the two soldier grade Demon Hunt Squads, simply standing agape at Haochen’s side.

Afterwards, ordinary soldiers from the Six Great Temples returned, but they rapidly joined up with those five Demon Hunt Squads. Soon, more than a thousand people were already encircling Long Haochen and Cai’er.

On the battlefield, seeing someone save a comrade-in-arms was a frequent occurrence. Camaraderie between soldiers and brother-in-arms would frequently appear, due to the special relationship created between the savior and the saved person.

But how about someone saving dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of comrades-in-arms on the battlefield?

Right after Long Haochen led the 21st and the 22nd general grade Demon Hunt Squads to join the battlefield, they immediately became the target of their comrades’ attention. Facing the enemy with courage and resolve, successively killing demon powerhouses of the sixth and the seventh step, and rushing into the enemy’s ranks first, they became the vanguard of the counterattack.

Perhaps, ordinary soldiers couldn’t understand what kind of power they were, but the high-ranking military officers from the Southern Mountain’s City could naturally tell out that those were Demon Hunters. And according to their age as well as their cultivation, they should be soldier grade or general grade Demon Hunt Squads.

But what they did was far out of a lower grade Demon Hunt Squad’s field of action.

If it was a powerhouse of the eighth or the ninth step, or even a powerhouse of the seventh step that faced the Moon Demon, this wouldn’t have caused such a commotion. That powerhouses had to face enemy powerhouses was one of the unwritten rules on the battlefield.

However, Long Haochen’s outrageous act was to face a Moon Demon of the eighth step, when the strength he seemingly had was only at the sixth step. And what the spectators didn’t know was that he had actually just broken through the bottleneck of this sixth step.

Sixth step versus eighth step, what sort of concept was that?

The soldiers didn’t understand why a Moon Demon of the eighth step would appear on the battlefield on the ground, but they clearly knew that hundreds of their comrades died at the hands of this Moon Demon of the eighth step. Before even speaking of a counterattack, when he appeared, hundreds and thousands of fighters had been about to be wiped out at the hands of this enemy. This was the eighth step; and one may well imagine what kind of strength this represented.

But Long Haochen still chose to face him, disregarding everything to face the Moon Demon of the eighth step.

The soldiers that battled with courage and determination didn’t feel any of the Moon Demon’s attacks reaching them. But when they returned, the Moon Demon wasn’t there anymore, and the young knight that resisted the Moon Demon’s assault was lying unconscious on the ground, bedded on his comrade’s lap.

An officer from the Southern Mountain’s City declared with red eyes, “He’s a hero! Pay respects to our hero!” Saying this, he used his leftover arm to take off his helmet, and walked in Long Haochen’s direction, paying respect with a knight salute.

All the soldiers that managed to came back alive, including even the disabled, followed this officer’s lead and each of them paid respect with an extremely solemn salute towards Long Haochen.

This scene was extremely shocking: there were not only soldiers that payed their respects, but also the various Demon Hunt Squads, including even several of the commander grade Demon Hunt Squads that rushed back. Though, those had ashamed expressions, because members of Demon Hunt Squads at the commander grade like theirs were at least at the sixth step. But against a Moon Demon of the eighth step, they made the same choice as Yang Wenzhao, which was to put the priority on protecting themselves.

A short time later, a golden silhouette abruptly appeared out of nowhere, with a very loud bang. He was clad in an elegantly decorated dark golden armor, and at the time he reached the ground, everyone immediately bowed down to his dignified silhouette.

“Get out of the way, all of you!” The golden clad knight shouted loudly, suddenly taking off his helmet, and revealing his face. It was precisely the Saint Knight Chief Han Qian.

Maybe some external soldiers could not recognize Han Qian, but how could those coming from the Demon Hunt Squads not recognize this Saint Knight Chief? Making haste to step aside one after another, they let a passage be formed for him to go through.

Han Qian hastingly stepped forward, arriving before Long Haochen. Seeing this young knight unconscious, he immediately had a serious look. Instantly turning around, he slapped Han Yu’s face hard, causing him to stumble back from the shock.

“How are you protecting your master as a retainer knight? Why aren’t you the one falling unconscious?” Han Qian shouted these words full of anger, before hurriedly inspecting Long Haochen’s condition.

Because she felt the intense holy aura of light coming from him, Cai’er didn’t stop him.

Han Yu recovered from the tumble caused by his grandfather’s slap, but didn’t refute him in any way. Though blood still flowed down the corners of his mouth, he got up with difficulty, and stood at his previous position.

A short moment later, the expression on Han Qian’s face eased up, before becoming very grotesque.

Springing up again, Han Qian’s voice was transmitted afar, “I am the Knight Chief of the Knight Alliance, Han Qian. Each of you, officers and soldiers alike, should now return to rest and reorganize in your own barracks, instead of staying there. The life of this young knight isn’t in danger, and I can pledge this to you on the honor of the Knight Alliance. He will definitely recover.”

The officer that seemed to be the highest ranked among everyone present stepped forward. It was the same man who had shouted to the other soldiers before. He stepped up and kneeled down in front of Han Qian, talking in a loud voice as well, “Respected Senior Saint Knight Chief, we request to be told the name of the hero.”

Han Qian suddenly pursed his lips. Seeing that the eyes of everyone in his surroundings were turning red, he suddenly shouted even louder in response, “Stand up! No one here deserves others kneeling down before him. This knight isn’t the only hero here. Don’t tell me it isn’t the same for every soldier and officer that gave everything in this Southern Mountain’s City? You are all equally heroes!”

At these words, all the soldiers and officers were silent for a moment, before they suddenly broke out in cheers of joy one after another.

That’s right, they had finally won this battle. No matter how miserable this victory was, they had at long last repelled the enemy, and all of them were heroes, heroes that protected humanity.

The cheers didn’t last long, and soon, just as if it had been planned ahead, the cheers gradually subsided, before all the looks gathered by chance on Han Qian.

Understanding their thoughts, Han Qian nodded, “The one all of you call hero is called Long Haochen, captain of the 21st general grade Demon Hun Squad. Remember his name! As the auxiliary chief of the Temple Alliance, this is the kind of knight I respect.”
“Long Haochen! Long Haochen! Long Haochen!” The cheers started once again, but this time, only one name resonated all around.

To the Southern Mountain’s City, the previous course of events couldn’t even be called a battle, but rather a total calamity. As the southern strategic gateway of the Alliance, the defensive strength of the Southern Mountain’s City didn’t fall short compared to the Exorcist City. Only this time, the demon force had been especially formidable, and a huge part of the Southern Mountain’s City’s power was lost during the siege.

At this moment, although the enemy retreated, cleaning the battlefield’s leftovers was still extremely challenging. Many private houses had to be used as infirmary for wounded people to receive treatment. Commoners gradually joined the cleaning of the aftermath, their first mission being to get rid of the demon carcasses with fire.

After three entire days, the Southern Mountain’s City was completely swept clean, and all traces of the battle entirely burnt. By chance, the demons didn’t come back to launch other attacks over these three days. After sustaining such serious damage while besieging the city, their losses were even heavier than the Southern Mountain’s City.

Over these three days, Long Haochen, acclaimed as hero, received the best treatment from the Southern Mountain’s City. In fact, an important detail was that this city was the location of the Priest Temple’s headquarters. Over the course of this war, perhaps the city was lacking in numbers of powerhouses, but they were in no shortage of high ranked priests.

The Saint who used a forbidden spell during the last moments of the battle even treated Long Haochen personally, meanwhile raising his cultivation by a wide margin.

After staying in a coma for two days and two nights, Long Haochen finally woke up, finding himself in a room inside the headquarters of the Priest Temple.

As the headquarters of the Priest Temple, this had been the first target of the demon forces. By chance, it had had sufficient defenses, barely managing to avoid a catastrophic destruction. But the side of the Office Palace wasn’t as fortunate, and had already become a huge cluster of broken walls.

Sitting on his bed cross-legged, Long Haochen calmly started cultivating. Cai’er wasn’t far from him, but currently she looked totally indifferent. Instead of being on the bed, she was sitting cross legged on a nearby chair.

With his serious overconsumption and the severe wounds he sustained, Long Haochen could easily be called one of the most severely wounded surviving knights this time. However, with his constitution as the Scion of Light, he was also the one who gained the most benefits from this battle.

First of all, the overwhelming pressure from facing the Moon Demon of the eighth step caused him to break through to the sixth step, becoming the youngest Radiant Knight of the Knight Temple’s entire history, at the age of fifteen.

Along with the formation of his spiritual cavities, the Saint Spiritual Stove evolved once again. And after this battle, Haoyue went back to a deep sleep, before returning at some time to his own world without consultation. This seemed to be a good opportunity for his next evolution.

Not only that, but because of Long Haochen’s performance on the battlefield, enabling him to gain ample recognition from the Priest Temple, the Saint of the ninth step not only healed his external injuries, but also helped to improve his spiritual energy’s operating system, giving him some good from this setback. His external spiritual energy increased by at least two hundred over these two days, and his internal spiritual energy also increased by more than a hundred units.


  • dlkian

    Thanks for the chapter!This is amazing!! 1st

  • KenskidaVinski

    thanks for the chapter!

  • Luke Confidential

    It’s sad that gigantic boatload of contribution points got away, but there are three things I’m looking forward to.

    1: seeing the reward for this courageous act of valor.

    2: seeing the look on Han Qian’s face when LHC explains to him how he was able to stand against the 8th step moon demon.

    3: seeing how desperate Han Qian is to buy the recipe for those pills.

    • ShelfCloud

      The third one especially. The pills that Lin Xin made sure are a lifesaver. Although you need someone who can endure all the gathered energy, it could help in a lot of desperate situations.

      • Luke Confidential

        It seems pretty common for a team’s captain to be significantly stronger than the rest. I imagine in most cases the captain would be capable of handling at least 4 member’s worth of Spiritual Energy [if not 5, remember the BRoS have 7 members] leaving one to do cleanup/bodyguard duty after the effects of the pills have ended.

        • Sarlisark

          BRoS nice one never realized, that our favourite team has such a nice abbreviation for their future title

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Now we need to make an abreviation for demons that comes out as HoE’s and we can say BRoS before HoE’s, lol.

          • Luke Confidential

            Horrors of Evil [though it doesn’t really fit for the more intelligent classes of demons]

          • Jonathan Hurd

            That seems like a pretty good one imo, hehe.

  • ShelfCloud

    Thank you very much for the chapter.

    Did anyone else think that Han Qian was a bit unfair towards Han Yu here? Directly slapping him although he does not really know what happened. And Han Yu would not have been to take Haochen`s place since there would have been no way he could have endured the effect of the pills and the accumulated energy. And at the end he had also lost nearly all of his internal energy and so would have hardly been able to protect Haochen from the hits of the Moon Demon.

    BTW, does the preview work for anyone?

    • Sarlisark

      well that is true, but the job of a retainer knight is to value the life of your master more than your own, and to give your life for him should his life ever be in mortal danger. So it was his job to save LHC, and the slap is kind of the punishement for not beeing able to do that because of his own weakness.
      He should have taken his place, but could not since he was just a 5th stepper, does not have the same equipement/mount/boosting abilities, and overall is just so much weaker, also he like everybody else was frozen in action after meeting the moon demon and was just aroused to action by LHC’s orders.
      It is not unfair since he could not fullfill his oath, but I agree that he did not have a possibility to fullfill it.

      and no does not work for me either

    • Luke Confidential

      It does now yes.

      • ShelfCloud

        Ah yes, now it works for me too.

    • dreamer

      It is now.
      It was a “not found” page before

    • Robin

      It is really unfair. I guess he used his son to blow some steam. Toto explained that in asian countries the children have to uphold their parents’ face but this principle doesn’t apply the other way round. Therefore, Han Quian felt his face being compromised by seing LHC, who he entrusted to his son’s protection in front of so many new Demon Hunters, unconscious on the ground. It still is unfair as hell, but at least it makes a little more sense, knowing this cultural background.

      You probably checked while it was still being released. ;P

  • Dawnyaaa

    Thanks!

  • addicted to LN

    Thank for the chapter!!!

  • Jonathan Hurd

    HAO YUE IS FINALLY EVOLVING SOON! WOOH!

    • Luke Confidential

      What! Your Haoyue is evolving!
      ……..
      Congratulations! Your Haoyue evolved to a 5 headed Elemhydra!

      • dreamer

        Not yet but soon…
        I can’t wait for it… XD

      • Dragon

        I think it’s a competition to see who can be more op this time LCH powered up to the sixth step so Haoyue has to follow the op code and lvl up.

    • addicted to LN

      I kinda looking forward to next Yating evolution if any. That enables LHC to get innate talent at 100th level to match with his human wife~

      • dreamer

        We’ll have to wait for that. Doesn’t seems like that will be happening soon

        • addicted to LN

          Maybe after he passed through bottleneck at seventh-step?

          • dreamer

            Remember when LHC break throught 5th step after yang wenzhao defeat him in knight preliminarie? It takes so much chapter to break through 6th step, may be we should wait for about that long 😛

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair she hasn’t even had her third evolution which all Elemental Fairies are assured. So a little early to be wondering when the fourth evolution will be.

      • Luke Confidential

        But what about LHC’s Elfin wife when Yating gets her final evolution.

        • addicted to LN

          who’s LHC Elfin wife?

          • Luke Confidential

            Did you read my post?

            I said Yating.

    • SaberWolf

      Soon, ally. Soon

      • addicted to LN

        His equipment has been repaired

      • Luke Confidential

        What I’m wondering is if Haoyue might be able to pull his newly discovered Aura Posing As Haochen trick to fool the undead at first.

        Sure the ones nearby may be drawn to destroy the light element, but nobody will realize it’s Austin Griffon at first.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          If last times evolution tells us anything I think all his concentration will be taken with the evolution so he won’t be able to multi task in the middle of it. He also needs to absorb the energy from around his world and release his own energy to make the final step which I don’t think he can hide.

          • Luke Confidential

            Yes, there will definitely be a phase where his identity is revealed. I was merely supposing he might be able to mask it during an initial phase.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Oh I think he is definitely going to be hidden during that first phase. The big thing for him is to find a safe and quiet place first. Remember the undead only came around and he only called LHC when he reached the final step. I am admittedly not sure how big his world is or how many undead there are, but covering every bit of the land and finding him when you don’t even know if he is out there is a pretty steep task. I think it is most likely the undead are stationing themselves at key places in a kind of net waiting for that burst of energy so they can rush to the spot rather than randomly searching and spreading their resources too thin.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        It took Hao Yue weeks if not months of concentration when he first started to finally get to the final step in which he had to call in LHC to protect him. LHC should have plenty of time to practice and learn his new skills and recover his energy in preparation for this.

      • Sarlisark

        yeah and we have our friend elux:” who dare harm the succesor of the slumbering calamity?”

        so we would have a at least 9th step HOLY necromancer ready to destroy all of those puny little darkness necros and skeletons

    • felix

      The way I take this is “the author is drawing our attention to haoyue, so he’s likely gonna slip in necromancy stuff is up next, woohoo”

  • Sean Kai

    It has been confirmed! He is officially 15 years old now.

    • SaberWolf

      Can someone confirm his birthday, then?

      For that matter, is it written anywhere what date it is now in Shengmu Dalu?

    • Yes. Sadly, no birthday parties in this kind of novels (unhappy face).

  • SaberWolf

    Thanks for the chapter, Totobro.

    Also, typo spotted:

    And after this battle, Haoyue went back to a deep sleep, after returning to his own world.

    Shouldn’t it be ‘before returning to his world’? or something. This sentence feels a bit awkward.

    • dreamer

      Isn’t that sentence mean Haoyue return to his world and sleep over there?
      If it change to “before” that will make it like he sleep then return (like sleep walking?)

      • it’s unsure whether it’s before or after. I guess a ‘and’ would do better, thanks!

        • Weedisdaboss

          But aren`t the enemies of Austin Griffin waiting for him ¿¿¿???

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair they’re always going to be waiting for him, but that is the only place he can evolve in.

        • Robin

          Yeah, it is a bit unclear, but the ‘and’ didn’t sound right to me as well. I finally decided on the ‘after’ because from the order of events it sounded the most legit.

  • SaberWolf

    Has anyone noticed this line:

    A short moment later, the expression on Han Qian’s face eased up, before becoming very grotesque.

    Does this mean what I think it means?

    • his expression becoming grotesque == unsightly look

      • Luke Confidential

        Any insights specifically into his grotesque expression Toto? I wouldn’t imagine it would be related to Haochen’s injuries when he’s so relieved that LHC isn’t severely injured.

        Think Chief-Han might have noticed something funky/necromancy in Haochen?

        • SaberWolf

          I think so too, which is what I meant by ‘mean what I think it means?’

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Guessing from Han Qian’s character I think what happened was he rushes over and is like “OMG IS LHC OKAY!?!” Finds out LHC is okay and breaths a sigh of relief…. And now hes pissed that LHC would do something as stupid as risk his life against an 8th step demon. It kind of feels like when you do something dangerous as a kid and your parent rushes out to first confirm your safety and then after finding out your not hurt starts scolding you.

          • Evilage

            Han qian be like “Oh my god mankinds future is hurt
            i’ll hurt my grandson for following his orders to satisfy my sadism and then check if whether he is okay or not”

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair he was pretty distraught and probably feeling guilty since LHC got hurt on the same battlefield he was fighting on.

          • Evilage

            Thats no reason for child abuse….

          • Psyside

            It is. HIT EM HARDER!!!

          • Evilage

            i forgot that the comment section of this novel is filled with terrible people

        • It’s a bit unclear and I’m actually not so good at reading into the lines. Maybe a realization of how strong their opponent was or the fact he reached the sixth step or of the number of people watching. These or(s) can be replaced by and(s)

    • felix

      Gonna guess its necromancy.

    • SpencyDabs

      my guess is that Han Qian could feel Haochen sucking in those souls, if Cai’er could feel it, HQ had to of been able to understand as well, LHC was lucky no one else felt a disturbance as well!

  • Luke Confidential

    All aboard the harem train.

    First Wife: Cai-er
    Other wives: Moon Princess, Yating the Fairy Queen after her final evolution.

    Am I missing anyone? [no, Yuanyuan and Big Sis and Ying-er are already spoken for to Smash Priest and Has-Drugs-Bro and Austin Griffon respectively.]

    • Jonathan Hurd

      To be fair Austin Griffin has multiple heads. One can marry Yin Er and the others can be LHC’s waifu’s.

    • Care

      over Cai-er’s dead body!! Lol

      • Luke Confidential

        Undead body.

        • Care

          👍🏾😊

    • Psyside

      Yating the Fairy Queen??? Dafuq?

      • Luke Confidential

        You didn’t notice at the time she bonded with LHC? Yating will become a Fairy Queen, the first of a new race of Elves upon the final evolution she is confident the Scion of Light will eventually provide her.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Basically in the story they explained that Elemental Fairy Spiritual Stoves all have 3 guaranteed evolution’s. After that getting a fourth or higher takes extreme luck and other factors (like the hosts Innate Spiritual Energy). If a fairy evolves to a fourth time they will as Luke says achieve a new level.

  • Luke Confidential

    So after this performance, what do you guys think the Conjoined Spirit Boosting Pill Set’s recipes will sell to the Alliance for?

    100,000 points?

    • SaberWolf

      Too expensive. Even commander grade DHS will hard time affording it.

      40,000 points.

      • Luke Confidential

        You misunderstand. I wasn’t talking about the selling price of the pills. I was talking about selling the recipe to the alliance so they could make their own to sell in the Gear Tower or whatever it’s called.

        • SaberWolf

          Ah, that’s a whole other kettle of fish.

          To be honest, it seems to me that the selling price will depend greatly on till which grade DHS will the pills remain useful. Added to the physique requirements for handling such pills.

          • Luke Confidential

            The Physique requirement is only related to the same number of equal ranked allies taking the pill. A fully stabilized [not freshly broken through] Captain one rank above the rest of the team should be able to handle the rest of a standard 6 man team no problem.

            If they’re all the same rank he may only be able to handle 4 allies.

            [Whereas LHC, with Haoyue’s help (though in this case it was clearly stated Haoyue didn’t amplify his cultivation, only helped stabilize the 6 incoming powers) handled SIX]

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I think 6 people at the same time might be biting off more than people can chew. Controlling that much power almost knocked LHC unconscious before Hao Yue fused with him. Though to also be fair LHC was also in a pretty unstable state having just broken through. For safety I would say keeping it at 4 allies is probably smarter.

            What they could potentially do is use these pills with a bunch of small fry to boost up a powerhouse mage really high. For instance if you have a squad of 5th steppers pour all their energy into someone of seventh or eighth step that could lead to some interesting results like the ability to cast a forbidden spell. I’m imagining something like what Yue Ye did though I am also not sure if he would be able to cast it before the buff wore off…

          • Luke Confidential

            I said the rest of a standard 6 man team, aka 5 allies, when the recipient is one step higher.

            4 is indeed the wise decision if a team is all the same step.

          • Robin

            Especially if for example the priest is left out to provide healing after the effect subsides. Of course he needs to be safe during the intake of the pills and their working, but like this they could receive a power buff right afterwards.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I feel like maybe boosting a mage to cast a giant spell and leaving the Knight out to block and run interference is a good choice. I feel mages would get the most bang for their buck from this too since they could pump the power into one massive spell and hit way more people than any of the vanguard classes probably could.

          • Luke Confidential

            Mage if it’s for crowd control, Assassin if it’s for single target elimination.

            Imagine two squads working together like the 21st and 22nd General Grade Squads each empowering a Knight and an Assassin.

            Actually… imagine the 22nd empowering an all-senses fully aware Sheng-Motherfucking-Cai [er] while the 21st empowers LHC…

            Or the reverse. The 21st actually knows and trusts Cai-Er while the only one to have TRULY earned the 22nd’s respect is LHC. [In this case naturally the Retainer Knight contributes to LHC’s boost.]

          • Jonathan Hurd

            That would be stupidly awesome… Now I want to see it. T.T

          • Luke Confidential

            Stupidly awesome indeed. That Moon Demon would have had zero chance whatsoever under that circumstance.

            Hell I’m pretty confident that could wreck a peak 8th step demon.

          • Robin

            Well, all mage aside from our favorite Has-Drugs-Bro. 😉

          • SaberWolf

            In that case, my guess is 500,000 points, provided the Alliance don’t outright reject the exorbitant price.

            I say this because, they already just gave BRoS some pretty big rewards (point wise). Otherwise BRoS will end up coming off as too greedy, potentially creating a need to teach some ‘manners’ to the young’uns.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      100k points seems pretty fair. Usually getting the recipe is basically the biggest part especially considering if the Temple Alliance wants to later sell these to others DHS’s. I think they should throw in a recipe or two for Lin Xin or at least some useful mats to sweeten the pot for him. Though considering how Has Drugs Bro works he would probably weasel more out of them anyways.

      • Luke Confidential

        “Sure I’ll sell those recipes to you, in exchange for a contract to sell me all the Fiend Lord Crystals the alliance acquires at the cost they paid to get them.” [This prior to revealing the content of the recipes of course.]

        Goes on to sell any he isn’t using back to the alliance at a 10-20% markup.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          To be fair I’m pretty sure the Alliance would never agree to that, but I guess that is kind of the point ask high so they will try to barter you down to something more reasonable but still amazing.

      • addicted to LN

        Maybe the side payment is getting 5 or more secret skills per person in the squad? That can make them stronger and better.

          Honestly, I’d like to know where contribution points COME FROM.

          Are they made out of thin air by the Alliance as needed, or are they part of a finite economy based on ancient magic or natural resources [atmospheric mana or somesuch?] that can’t be created?

  • Captain Facts

    I was mostly worried about Haoyue so this makes me relieved.

  • Anto Wibowo

    Thank you for the chapter! I guess the next hao yue hurdle is near.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I have been waiting for this since the last Hao Yue hurdle, lol.

  • Dragon

    Hao yue leveling up oh yea time for some new head theioris I think that his new head will be of the water element my reasoning is that Hao Yue’s evolutions have always in one way or another always in some way powered up LHC his fire is mainly attack wind mobility and light healing what the water element could add is strengthening his light element while also strengthening his blue rain sword. What do you guys thin?

    • SpencyDabs

      i like it!

      • Evilage

        Yeah its probably another version of the azure dragon from CD

        • Luke Confidential

          Give credit where credit is due for that theory 😛

          • Evilage

            I forgot who made the theory 😉

    • Inuzuka

      There are two lumps at the base of Hao Yue’s necks, so he should grow two heads during his next evolution. Which means he should get two new elements as well.

      • Dragon

        Oh nice I missed that so he could get water and earth elements nice though I would find earth a little unnecessary because it would give him some attack but it’s main focus is defense and as we all know LHC is a tank so it would seem abit unnecessary.

  • I kept reading “Moon Demon” as Mount Doom… lol

    • Sarlisark

      well would be funny, happens

    • SpencyDabs

      mount doom would be a good band name

      • Count Grey

        There’s a metal band named Amon Amarth, which is the old name for Mount Doom. They’ve been around for a while.

  • Sarlisark

    Also another 50000 Cp for them, I kind of get the feeling that they are simply not able to get rid of al of their points also they are already the team which managed to get the most points in the smallest amount of time they and their over 300k Cp which they earned till now

  • Miluska Lin

    Thank you~
    Toto & Sponsors.

  • Care

    Oh em geeeee. This story just brings a smile to my fm face!!

  • VanillaCustardPie

    Thank you~

  • Psyside

    K i dont understand something i thought it was Eternal Melody who casted the forbiden healing spell.
    What did it do then if not cast it?

    • Luke Confidential

      One of the 9th rank priests that lives in this town.

      We don’t actually know what sort of magic [aside from undead creation] Holy Necromancy has yet.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        We do however now know that you do not fuck with Elux’s Disciple….

        • Luke Confidential

          You are not the last of the old Necromancers, Haochen. You are the first of the new.

          Create a new order, to maintain peace throughout the galaxy…. I mean continent…. I mean multiverse.

    • Robin

      No, the healing spell was cast by a human Saint, a priest of the ninth step. We will meet him later on. 😉

      Elux drove the Moon Demon away and protected Haochen during the last instants of the fight. Furthermore, he/Divine Melody directed a bigger amount of soul energy directly to Haochen and started healing him before any other healing spell could reach him. Seeing how severly he was injured this time, we can rightfully say that Divine Melody saved his life.

    • Mangaaddict

      Eternal melody just scared off the moon demon. It was a priest powerhouse (probably the temple leader) who cast the healing spell

  • Zeth

    Thank you very much Totobro and sponsors!

  • Mangaaddict

    thanks for the chapter.
    But I don’t really like the direction this went. Because the only way this can go is down because after being able to fend off a powerhouse at the 8th step the next thing that will top that is fending off a demon god and I think it is way to early for that.
    Also I REALLY WANT HIM TO LEARN NECROMANCY SOON

    • haha

    • Luke Confidential

      He IS learning necromancy, despite wishing otherwise 😛

    • Jonathan Hurd

      He learned it a few chapters back when he first went into seclusion. Thank god for Elux force feeding it into his mind so hard that he has no choice but to learn it.

  • Jonathan Hurd

    You know what I find funny is first LHC impressed all the heads of the Exorcist Mountain pass by saving their leader and leading the Brilliant Angel Division. Now hes impressed the Southern Mountain’s city by saving their bacon…. Ah LHC building himself a loyal following one city at a time….

  • lordcattank

    thank you very much for the chapter

  • ZaX

    And he hasn’t even fully unlocked the inheritance yet. Thanks for the chapter

  • Count Grey

    Thanks for the chapter 🙂

  • ALHoward

    Thanks for the chapter! Duddeee you would think Haochen is Han Qian’s grandson instead of Han Yu, tsk tsk…*the life of a retainer knight… O_o

    • Luke Confidential

      Han Qian loves his grandson, but pride and shame are incredibly powerful motivators in certain cultures [and within ANY culture there is variation among individuals in how big a deal these are.]

      Lastly there’s the whole Scion of Light future of humanity thing. Han Qian understands just how important LHC is. Important enough he’d sacrifice his own life to preserve that of Haochen and expects the same from his own grandson who formed a Retainer Pact and gained great benefits from LHC.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I think another part of it is probably guilt too. The fact that Han Qian was in the same battlefield and let something like this happen to LHC is probably eating him up inside.

        • Luke Confidential

          There’s also the fact that Han Yu is the eldest member of the squad, being the only one over 20. Despite being a retainer companion, that does add a bit of additional responsibility.

      • OmegaGoodJob!

        I think Han Yu excellently did his job not only as a retainer of LHC but also as a teammate considering the personality of LHC instead of being protected by others he would choose to protect them although I kinda understand his grandfather’s act towards him is all because of this pride of the knight thingy they hold precious as their own life OR…..
        Its just his way of showing of how worried he is for his grandson.. you know a Tsundere GrandPa..!! ehehehe 😀

        ———–

        he slapped Han Yu’s face hard, causing him to stumble back from the shock.
        “How are you protecting your master as a retainer knight? Why aren’t you the one falling unconscious?”
        (Han Qian’s real thoughts)
        “Do you know how worried I am to you? Baka!”
        Tsundere GrandPa Kiitaa!! uehehehe 😀

  • Luke Confidential

    I am curious, do you guys think Yang Wenzhao would have [just barely] skated by the qualifications to wield Bright Vengeance, or was his Innate Spiritual Energy down on par with Han Yu’s pre-retainer-pact?

    • ShelfCloud

      I wondered about that as well some time ago. My personal estimate is that his ISE is just barely above 70. I thought that it should be this high because for his age and a ‘normal’ knight, he is pretty strong. But it should not be much more than that.

      • Luke Confidential

        Do we have these knight’s ages clearly listed anywhere? If Han Yu has a couple of years on Wang Yenzhao that would definitely support your theory.

        • ShelfCloud

          Well, we have the age of Han Yu, which is 22 (chapter 96). And although we do not know Yang Wenzhao’s exact age, it was said that he looks like 20 (chapter 82). So I guess we can assume that Han Yu is at least a bit older.

          • MissAtlantis

            Wouldn’t they be about the same age, because didn’t they say in one chapter that Han Yu is the youngest to reach he 5th step? Can’t really remember at the moment.

          • Evilage

            that was before LHC came and ruined these peoples lives.

          • Luke Confidential

            I could be misremembering [don’t feel like looking it up] but I think the record-holder for youngest 5th stepper was several generations back, rather than a contemporary of LHC.

          • Luke Confidential

            Oh wow, I had guessed Han Yu would have been more like 20 and [if younger] Wang perhaps 18ish [which would make him a fellow (but significantly inferior) teenage prodigy with LHC]

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Problem with Han Yu being 20 is that if he was then he would of had another shot at going to the next DHS selection. I think the same is probably true for Yang Wenzhao and the other 5th steppers.

          • Luke Confidential

            Makes sense. Though I don’t recall Wenzhao not having the option to go on the next selection had he failed this time. Could be something like 21/19 or whatnot.

    • addicted to LN

      I think he has innate talent about 71st-80th level and since he was acknowledged by a Starlight Unicorn, he should have at least that high of innate talent.

  • Renegade

    Lol I find myself checking every 15 mins this morning for chapter 290 Goo(^_^)ooG

    • Evilage

      you are not the only one
      dont worry about it xD

      • Luke Confidential

        Seems like we’re getting an afternoon chapter.

        There went my morning >_< xD

        • Jonathan Hurd

          The mighty f5 club lives!

          • Renegade

            Hahaha it’s exciting anticipating what happens next in the story. Love the development!

        • MissAtlantis

          Hoping its a long chapter since its been more than 24 hours

          • Luke Confidential

            With LHC as our MC they’re ALL Long chapters 😛

  • normal guy

    there seem to be a lot of ‘ by chance’ things

  • Plue

    Thx for the chap Toto and sponsors :3

  • Raden gilang

    Why they burn the demon carcasses? Arent it can be changed for contribution point?

    • Stark

      They are mostly low leveled corpses that aren’t worth much. They probably kept the higher ranking corpses.

  • OmegaGoodJob!

    now that his internal spiritual energy is more than a hundred units, so LHC is now higher than Scion of Light what is he called now?
    can someone give me an answer.. please >_<

    • AsurAstaroth720

      it’s not 99 to 1?? but 4000 to 41??

  • OmegaGoodJob!

    I think Han Yu excellently did his job not only as a retainer of LHC but also as a teammate considering the personality of LHC instead of being protected by others he would choose to protect them although I kinda understand his grandfather’s act towards him is all because of this pride of the knight thingy they hold precious as their own life OR…..

    Its just his way of showing of how worried he is for his grandson.. you know a Tsundere GrandPa..!! ehehehe 😀
