Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 294

Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 294: Illusory Paradise (III)

Han Qian hesitantly replied, “It’s certainly a great chance, but this kid really leaves me restless. Since he dared to go against a Moon Demon at the eighth step, and considering some demons are coming along this time, I’m a bit worried. ”

Ling Xiao responded with some surprise, “It looks like what you said is true, then these two kids are really the future successors of your two Temples! But that’s no wonder, seeing that this kid Haochen broke through to the sixth step before even being twenty years old. And he has the spirit of a knight, truly a rare genius!”

Han Qian asked with a concerned look, “Old Ling, you guys from the Priest Temple have the best understanding of the Illusory Paradise. Just tell me one thing in detail. How dangerous is it in the end?”

Ling Xiao smiled in response, “Then, tell me the truth as well: why would those two children be the sole successors of your Temples? Talent is one thing, but designating sole successors is too dangerous from your two Temples. There has to be some other reason. If they are to mature successfully, even at the fastest possible rate, it will still take at least a dozen years. And Demon Hunt Squads’ missions are in no way devoid of dangers.”

Han Qian and Ying Suifeng looked at each other face to face, and Ying Suifeng finally spoke, “Okay then. Since we are all old brothers that risked our lives side by side, and you are in addition the auxiliary chief of the Priest Temple, there should be no harm in telling you the truth.”

Han Qian waved his hand, wrapping the five of them in a Holy Mantle before telling Long Haochen, “Tell him how old you are this year.”

Long Haochen replied, “This junior is fifteen since this year. Cai’er is going to be fifteen soon as well.”

Even though Ling Xiao was one of the few Saints of his generation, he still couldn’t help but open his mouth wide, “Fifteen years old? You broke through to the sixth step merely at the age of fifteen? Heavens! If you didn’t make use of any secret methods, how high is your innate level of internal spiritual energy?” The Six Great Temples had some secret methods for those excessively eager to advance, but those would make their later cultivation a lot harder.

Han Qian replied, “So you asked the essential question. Haochen’s innate level of internal spiritual energy is 97, and Cai’er’s is 100. Scion of Light and Saint Daughter of Samsara, ever heard of those terms before?”

Bang. Ling Xiao hit his fist against his forehead, immediately waving his hand at Han Qian and Ying Suifeng, “Let me think for a bit, I feel a bit confused. So this Scion of Light’s innate level of internal spiritual energy is 97? And could it be that this Saint Daughter of Samsara successfully inherited the previous Scion of Samsara’s legacy?”

Han Qian and Ying Suifeng nodded simultaneously.

Ling Xiao rapidly came back to his senses, staring at Long Haochen before giving a look to Cai’er. His eyes resembled those of the big bad wolf watching some lambs. Especially when he looked at Long Haochen, his eyes seemed to be filled with envy.

“Old Han…”

Ling Xiao’s sentence was immediately interrupted by Han Qian, “Don’t say it, so as to avoid damaging our relationship. You know it cannot be done.”

Ling Xiao furiously replied, “I haven’t said anything yet! So how could you know?”

Han Qian let out a snort, “Let alone you, even if Elder Ling were to ask that, I couldn’t possibly accept. No one from the Knight Temple could possibly accept it. I told you everything you wanted to know, so let’s quickly get to the subject of the Illusory Paradise. You should know about the importance of the Scion of Light and the Saint Daughter of Samsara to the Alliance. When they grow up, they will one day be the ones who will permit us to start a real counterattack against demonkind.”

Ling Xiao touched his own chest with a hand, taking another deep breath before gradually dissipating the envy in his look directed at Long Haochen. All the severity that was on his face the first time he dealt with Long Haochen immediately disappeared completely. After composing himself, he declared with a smile, “Haochen! I heard that you are a Guardian Knight. Do you have some interest in the vocation of healer?”

Han Qian was really angry, “Ling Xiao, if you old guy keep going on like this, I’ll complain to Elder Ling about…”

Ling Xiao swept a glance in his direction, “Go then! Let’s see whether my old father will pay attention to you. I’ll just say this: Haochen, whenever you wish to renounce the path of a knight, come to our Priest Temple. I’m now leading it, and can ensure you that the position of auxiliary chief of the Priest Temple will be yours. I can even guarantee you that within ten years after you’ll break through to the ninth step, I will immediately make you the chief of the Temple. Crowd effect healing of Saints at the ninth step can save hundreds and thousands of people, you know! What’s good about being a knight?”

Han Qian’s words were completely inefficient in making him renounce. This was the Scion of Light! It was a kind of supreme talent that had never appeared before in the whole Alliance.

Han Qian suddenly fell silent, watching the show from the side.

Long Haochen replied apologetically, “I’m sorry, elder Ling, I cannot agree to that. I can only be a knight…”

Veins appeared on Ling Xiao’s forehead, and he shouted in a loud voice, “Fifteen years! I can enable you to break through to the ninth step within a period of fifteen years! I’ll tell my old father to use the great technique of Ethereal Irrigation on you, helping you to speed up your spiritual energy’s cultivation. And I’ll provide at least three types of top-notch spiritual stoves for priests. Fifteen years later, you will just be thirty. And the Priest Temple will help you with all its strength to fight for the position of chief of the Temple Alliance, how about it?”

Ying Suifeng unhappily cut in, “Enough, old Ling! There’s no use. Just ask him who his father is before asking further. In fact, we shouldn’t be the ones to tell you.”

Ling Xiao was startled, eagerly asking Long Haochen, “Your father is?”

Long Haochen replied, “My father’s name is Long Xingyu.”

Ling Xiao was totally shaken, his face becoming clearly pale, slapping his own forehead with force this time, “It looks as if I should know when to let go of something. If ‘she’ was by my side, maybe our kid would also have this kind of formidable talent.”

Han Qian snorted coldly, “If you look for her with this sort of attitude, I can guarantee that you will die in a very ugly way.”

Ling Xiao gave a restrained look, returning once again to his serious attitude, “Treat it as though I hadn’t said anything. All right, let’s get back to proper business.”

“I suggest to let these two kids enter the Illusory Paradise. For demons to come and attack us with an army of a million, not sparing anything to break our defenses, its importance is evident.”

“The Illusory Paradise is a miraculous place, located in a forest sixty kilometers to the north of the Southern Mountain’s City, in a place we call Illusory Shrine. Reportedly, the Illusory Shrine is the palace of a goddess in the human world, which has absorbed the essence of Heaven and Earth. The Illusory Shrine will open once every hundred years, and those who can enter it will have great opportunities, but also run into dangers coexisting with them.”

Arriving at this point, Ling Xiao came to a stop, looking at Long Haochen and Cai’er, “This chance is especially important to young people like you, because the Illusory Paradise produces the most valuable treasures on earth, which are the spiritual stoves.”

Long Haochen had been holding Cai’er’s hand all along, writing words on Cai’er’s palm. As soon as the subject of spiritual stoves was discussed, Long Haochen and Cai’er were immediately shocked.

It can be said that to raise one’s strength beyond the ordinary limits, Spiritual Stoves were of utter importance. A place that could produce spiritual stoves could simply be called the holy land.

Long Haochen couldn’t help but ask at the time Ling Xiao paused in his speech, “Grandfather Ling, then how many spiritual stoves will be produced in the Illusory Paradise every time?”

Ling Xiao replied, “It differs every time, but their total number never exceeds twenty. Every type will appear only once, and the stronger a spiritual stove is, the harder the corresponding test will be. The major point when you enter is that you cannot be greedy. Otherwise, even if you pass the tests, you will suffer an unavoidable death.”

Han Qian appeared to be puzzled, “What are you speaking about? Why would one die after passing the test?”

A humble smile appeared on Ling Xiao’s face, “The reason why my old father consented to let demons enter, was that he had an assurance. We have enough experience to ensure that the demons will fail to achieve their ambitions there. Old Han, let me ask you, if you were to see a dozen spiritual stoves before your eyes, what would you do?”

Han Qian replied without hesitation, “Naturally, I would collect all those that can be collected.”

Ling Xiao replied, “Right. Actually, the spiritual stoves in the Illusory Palace can be collected conveniently as one wishes. You can take as many as you want. The tests will happen only afterwards. And that’s to say, if you have collected a huge amount of spiritual stoves, you will be tested accordingly. The difficulty of the tests will be based on the number of spiritual stoves you will have picked, and it increases several folds every time. This doesn’t make it only a simple test, but something even more terrible. Avaricious people are bound to suffer a tragic end.” Looking at them, he continued.

“The two items my old father gave you are Illusory Gems, which have been produced in the Illusory Paradise. With those things, in case you run into a danger you are totally unable to contend against, you can chose to immediately come back. The shrine will be bound to protect our people, thus, I suggest you to have a try inside. Although you probably already possess some spiritual stoves, the ones produced in the Illusory Paradise are of the best quality. And furthermore, some spiritual stoves that are completely unknown to us will also appear. But the most important point lies in what I said before: in the same way that their tests are terrible, these Spiritual Stoves are the great opportunity that lies in the Illusory Paradise.”

At this point, he revealed a cold look, “As for the people from the demon side, out of ten that enter, having one or two survivors would already be a good luck for them.”

The negotiations between the Southern Mountain’s City and the demon side progressed fast, and after a few series of talks, both sides reached an agreement. As for the gains the humans obtained from the demons during those negotiations, they were only known to the higher-ups, but it could definitely not be something negligible. After the last victory of the city’s defense, the damage was extremely severe for both sides.

As for Long Haochen, he didn’t feel concerned about the sort of talks the Temple Alliance and the demon side had. He also didn’t need to know about the number of places allocated to enter the Illusory Shrine. All he knew was that Cai’er and he had a place to enter, and that was enough for him.

During the next three days, Long Haochen was busy visiting his comrades and their acquainted Demon Hunt Squads. Overwhelmed by the visits of military representatives, he visibly obtained a total acknowledgement from the army. His 50,000 contribution points reward naturally followed.

But in Long Haochen’s heart, something was even more important than this. After learning about the concrete details pertaining to the Illusory Paradise, he immediately made a bold decision. The treasures inside the Illusory Paradise were after all Spiritual Stoves! Who wouldn’t wish to possess some? Accordingly to his original plan, Long Haochen expressed to Han Qian his desire to train in seclusion along with his comrades, until the time the Illusory Shrine would open.

  • carlo arcenal

    I find my timing great, just like toto. 1st yay. thankyou so much toto.

  • megabadman16

    Im confused, i might have to go back and re-read does the the head priest guy like long haochen mom?

    • Robin

      Her name was never mentioned in this discussion. The name he utters the in the chaps before is one we never heard so far. But it could be that he knows Haochen’s mom or that there is some sort of back story. I also got the feeling that there is something more about it.

      • dreamer

        Then how about LHC’s mother’s mother?

        • Robin

          It is possible since we know almost nothing about her and her side. But the name mentioned was Ye something, not Yue.

          • dreamer

            According to the naming so far, seems like it follows the rule of patrilineal, which mean the name of LHC mother doesn’t necessarily follow her mother but more likely her father. It can also his grandmother from his father though… 😛

    • AnarchyDev

      Of course not… His mom is still young and these are all very old guys…

      • Luke Confidential

        Unless she really is half-demon like we suspect, which likely age more slowly after reaching maturity, ESPECIALLY if she’s half Moon Demon.

        • dreamer

          If I remember correctly, Demon God Slayer knight (more than 300 years old) look younger than Sheng Yue (look like a man arround his 40s) while this father of Ling Xiao look old with his white beard while only in his 200s, so LHC mother doesn’t necessarily has to be half demon as long as she has high cultivation.

          • Sarlisark

            or it depends on the timing of the breakthrough, like you stop ageing apearance wise after reaching the 9th step, and the DGS were just faster than them

        • AnarchyDev

          Then that would mean, for a scion of light to be born, a little demon blood is also necessary? Though it might not be necessary, there hasn’t been such a body for 100s of years. So maybe the last one born was also between a Human and demon? Speculation…………

    • carlo arcenal

      I agree with AnarvhyDev, besides, when the name was mentioned, YUE SOMETHING… LHC said he never heard the name before.

    • Andy W

      From the way I read the conversation between the old men, I had assumed that the three were from the same Demon Hunt Squad, and that maybe the priest liked the female member of the group. Though this is only my speculation.

      • Majulio

        Well, the vacant spots are warrior, summoner and mage, all of which should be capable of completely destroying a priest of similar strenght. So I’d say you’re right.

  • Baem LN

    Thanks for the chapter!
    Looks like for Cai’er, maybe she can get a spiritual stove that will act as collateral when she uses her Six Path of Samsara ability.
    For LHC maybe an offense-type Light Elemental Fairy?

  • Rovi Evangelista

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • Luke Confidential

    I am torn. Part of me is rather intrigued/excited about this, and part of me is really annoyed it seems like LHC and Cai-Er will be without their squad.

    • Robin

      Do you really believe this? Haochen is more cunning than that.

      • Sarlisark

        eternal melody and it’s tower is my bet, also it is not like the others are yet forbidden but, that they did not get an emergency escape button

        • Robin

          Good thinking. But Haochen doesn’t even know yet if they can enter the tower or not. But there is a good chance that we will soon find out.

  • Luke Confidential

    I am also disappointed LHC didn’t ask Grandpa Ling if he COULD teach him the basics of priestly healing.

    His team needs more healing mojo.

    • Baem LN

      Maybe Han Yu can be a priest instead? Having 81st level of innate talent is good enough.

      • Luke Confidential

        Han Yu is only allowed to tag along with the DHS because he’s a Guardian Knight.

        And unlike LHC I HIGHLY doubt he has the mental capacity to pick up on Priestly Magic.

        That being said, were LHC to learn some, I imagine he could feasibly serve as a bridge, showing Han Yu the way.

        • Baem LN

          There are always exceptions for this DHS members I think since all of them are princes and princesses.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          To be fair Han Yu is currently prioritizing learning healing spells open to Guardian Knights. He also doesn’t have much need to exercise most of the Guardian Knight skills if he is not in front so it would make sense for him to learn priest skills to cast from the back.

          The big reason LHC needed such a high mental capacity to be Retribution and Guardian Knight was he was learning every part of both professions and he needed to flawlessly switch between the two mid battle. Han Yu would just need to learn the healing of priest and the defense of Guardian Knight. So it would be like the priest healing spells would replace the Guardian Knight healing spells he is already trying to learn.

          • Luke Confidential

            Indeed LHC is not the first knight to dabble in both sides, he’s only the first to be a full dual-class Knight.

            I question whether or not a trained Knight other than the Scion of Light who didn’t renounce his knight path and start over from scratch could up and learn Priest Healing mojo from Priests.

            This is why it occurred to me that LHC could serve as a bridge. He HAS the mental capacity to blend Knightly Healing principles and methods into Priestly mojo. He may not have the time/capacity/energy/space to follow the path, but breaking open the way and then guiding Han Yu onto it might be feasible.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            While LHC does have an amazing Mental Capacity and I would love to see him be a Guardian/ Retribution Knight and a Necromancer/Priest I think that it might be too much information even for his mental capacity at that point. I think it would be fine for Han Yu to start on the journey alone especially considering how their priest is more of a Knight anyways.

            I do have to say though it would be pretty freaking awesome to watch LHC summon up a bunch of skeletons to protect everyone and then stand back and start casting healing spells. After finishing healing he then acts as the vanguard for his personal skeleton army…. Damn it now I want to see Necromancy even more and that included too!

          • Luke Confidential

            I wasn’t talking about LHC following the Priest Path, only serving as an intermediary, taking the first step and guiding Han Yu onto it.

            EDIT: the crazy thing about healing in this setting though is that it’s simultaneously blasting for use against the enemies. Remember that massive crowd heal that cleaned up the demon stragglers?

          • Jonathan Hurd

            You got a good point there. I mean who doesn’t want to get into the freaking Scion of Lights good graces?

            Honestly that spell was awesome, but it makes me feel just so sad thinking we’ll never get to see Sima Xian use something like that, lol. I would be so happy if Han Yu at least learned a forbidden spell or two because all the 21st GGDHS’s mages are so freaking weird. I think Ying Er will probably shape up by the point they get there at least and hopefully we’ll have an arc where Lin Xin overcomes his scars, but Sima even if he could heal just doesn’t seem to the type to stand back and do it.

            What we should have happen is Sima Xian and Han Yu teach each other their arts. Sima learns some Knight skills to fill out his bases and Han Yu learns priest healing to fill out his. Only downside is Sima should probably learn Retribution Knight techniques which Han Yu doesn’t know and Han you needs to learn healing spells that Sima doesn’t know…

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • Ryner

    Thanks for the chapter

  • Evilage

    Thanks for the chapter
    hmm i wonder who ling xiao was talking about?
    hope it isnt anyone related to haochen
    This just raises more and more questions
    just makes me want to read tge whole novel in one go

    EDIT: okay toto, after seeing that teaser i’ll doubtfully believe what you said last time
    No offense though

  • ZaX

    It’s time to get serious. Thanks for the chapter

    • Luke Confidential

      Lets. Get. Danger-rous

      • Sarlisark

        wonderful just wonderful

  • Anto Wibowo

    Training time! Thank you for the chapter!

  • lordcattank

    thank you very much for the chapter

  • Zeth

    Thank you very much Totobro and sponsors!

  • Majk

    I’m glad that it’s not just another boring warehouse but something that produces stoves and tests the people who want it

  • Jonathan Hurd

    Okay Toto I take it back you stopped the preview last time at a perfect place. Watching a 9th step priest try to bribe LHC to give up being a Knight and join the priest temple was hilarious. Stopping it anywhere else would of hurt so much more.

    • Luke Confidential

      I definitely don’t forsee the mages trying to recruit him [though Cai-Er’s mother’s reaction to the sheer degree of his talent will be entertaining as fuck.]

      The warriors though, I could totally see that one coming down the pike.

      • Robin

        Well, her mother already knows that he is the Scion of Light and knows how important he is. Her reaction when she learned about this was a bit disappointing then, but well, when she and her husband learn about his new heroics, maybe (with a BIG maybe) we will get a nicer one this time.

        • Luke Confidential

          Huh, somehow I don’t recall that explanation though thinking back it makes sense.

          Maybe it didn’t leave an impression on me BECAUSE she didn’t seem impressed.

          • Robin

            She probably simply was too shocked in general. Sheng Yue told her about his importance after Haochen lied and the whole matter was resolved without anyone dead.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To also be fair she was already scared shit less of Sheng Yue, scared of being called out for endangering this young Demon Hunt Squad Captain for a personal grudge, scared of losing her husband, and just overall feeling ashamed of their behavior. With all that being thrown around can’t really blame her for being somewhat in shock upon getting yet another blow.

          • Sarlisark

            she was fucking scared it was told after the whole LHC agaisnt Demon gods fiasco, for which she and her husbands personal reasons were the source

  • Jonathan Hurd

    Okay so the betting stalls open once again! So the max number of Spiritual Stoves in the place can be 20. Also they said that there are probably going to be 10 demons that enter and I assume they probably will send in 10 humans as well to balance the numbers. How many Stoves is LHC and Cai’er going to manage to bring back with them, and what kind of stove do you think they will find.

    For me I think LHC is at least going to pick up 4-5. Knowing his personality I think he will try to find some that are useful to his teammates as well as himself. Cai’er since she is currently down so many senses will probably try and pick up 1-2 it depends on whether they can take the stoves tests together or not, imo though I think she should be able to handle at least 2 though it might be stretching it in her current condition.

    For what kind they will bring back…. I think LHC will get a defensive stove like Yang Whenzhao’s Starlight one. Then maybe an offensive Stove for himself as well. He will try and find a stove that can help Cai’er deal with her sensory losses from the Stove of Samsara probably as top priority. After that A healing stove for Han Yu. Finally maybe an offensive stove for Sima or Wang Yuanyuan but I feel that those two will come after LHC’s defensive stove, Cai’er’s, and Han Yu’s. As for Ying Er I have no clue what kind of stove would be useful for her so that might be interesting to see if they find one that suits her.

    On the demon side I think we should try predicting how many come back alive and how many stoves they might grab.

    I think that at least 2 demons will be able to get out. If the Prophet Demon God gave some warnings then I would up that number to at least 5 since greed and overconfidence has a high chance of overwhelming peoples caution. I feel like they might make it out with 1 stove per survivor to start with since they are unfamiliar with how the place works. Those with caution will make it out safe and those who succumb to greed…..

    • Evilage

      Yes he is gonna do something like that
      apart from everything which will happen with the demons i believe you just summerised this arc , BRAVO
      i feel like haochen is gonna get a massive boost or something in this bit and that yating will evolve to the last level

      one more thing that made me confused, due to yating his innate talent(lets just call it IT from now on) increased by two points, and the novel states(or we assume) that he already did a retainers contract eith sima, so how come he didnt see the increase in this IT?
      or is it that he knows and just kept it a secret?

      • Luke Confidential

        People can’t just SEE their I.T. there’s a specific method for testing it. Nobody’s bothered testing his.

        • Evilage

          No no no
          oh god, explaining this again
          when there is a big difference if IT between master and retainer innate sharing occurs(with hanyu and sima) which increases the retainers IT by half the difference as i remember it was due to this han yu’s grandpa was able to deduct LHC IT so when sima’s contract was done his IT would increase more than expected which will allow Haochen to finally find out that his IT increased to 99. Get it?

          • Luke Confidential

            You are assuming LHC was paying attention to this minutia. We don’t know that he was.

          • Robin

            Yes, I know what you mean. Also, we know that only Han Quian can perform a retainer contrct with those benefits, therefore, they should know. There has been an interesting mistake with the numbers here, because the author seems to have forgotten that with Sima’s innate ISE level he could not profit from this effect unless Haochen has rised from 97 to 99. Sima’s level was one point higher than Han Yu’s, thus the problem.
            It was never mentioned, but based on logical guessing, Han Quian and Haochen should know about the new level. I guess the author forgot about it the same way he ignored the numerical mistake I mentioned above.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I was just thinking that too, good job catching it before me Robin, :D.

            A potential excuse for why Han Qian doesn’t admit that LHC has a 99 IT now could be he is still trying to keep some things close to the vest, imo. The idea that LHC could potentially hit 100 IT might cause even the deterrent of LHC’s dad not enough. Add in that he has already stated nobody understands the IT sharing Retainer Knight ritual other than him even in the Knight Temple so nobody can really call the numbers we know into question especially coming from other temples.

            That or as we have seen before the author kind of likes to be loose with numbers.

      • Psyside

        i think its far to early for a yating evolution into a fary queen. Think its a 7th 8 th step thing

    • Psyside

      Im betting they will get 6 and hao chen will get a legendary one. Caier maybe.
      “But the most important point lies in what I said before: in the same way that their tests are terrible, these Spiritual Stoves are the great opportunity that lies in the Illusory Paradise.”

  • VanillaCustardPie

    Thank you~

  • Dragon

    I have had this wild suspicion that 2of the ppl sent by the demon side will be the moon demon’s daughter and the eighth step by LHC owned. As for the spiritual stove I think LHC will definitely get at least super powerful ones and one of them could even be another light fairy since it was previously stated the he could have more than one light stove.

    • Robin

      I doubt he will gain another light fairy. Imagine the catfight for his attention and favor!

      • Dragon

        True another option could be that he gets a barkness attitude stove and that in turn could be another push for his necromancy powers he might be unwilling to get it but he might not have a choice if that guy in the pendent forces him

        • Robin

          I doubt that. His necromancer skills stem from a Holy Necromancer who abhors the darkness attribute. He took Haochen as a successor because he possesses such a strong light element. So no darkness attribute sove in sight in my opinion, at least not for Haochen. And it was also mentioned, that more appearing stoves are of the light attribute anyway.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Another potential problem I can imagine with a Darkness stove is that they also said the Illusory Paradise seems to prefer the light element. So if the area is founded in light essence it seems like that would make it harder to garner a Darkness Stove, though there is still probably a chance.

            The other problem with Elux forcing LHC to get a Darkness Stove is that Elux doesn’t seem intend to intervene that directly outside of life and death situations or LHC refusing to learn necromancy.

          • Psyside

            A darkness stove can happen. Remember it did state that every kind of stove can be found there

          • Robin

            I never said it couldn’t appear. But it would not be suited to Haochen.

          • Psyside

            No it would be more suted to caier. LHC wont ever use a darknes one cos he is pure light. But caier is Death. Death and drakness work well togeather

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I’m not a hundred percent sure how closely darkness is tied to Death. I say that because as we have seen with the Tower of Eternity that place has Light and Death mixed together pretty thoroughly.

            I would say that while it would be interesting to see Cai’er with her own fairy, I don’t think she could get full usefulness out of a darkness fairy compared to a different stove. Maybe if there is a Death Elemental Fairy. That would be pretty damn awesome to see, but also pretty confusing, lol.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        To be fair they did mention during his fusion with Yating that he has such a high compatibility with the light that he could have another Light Elemental Fairy if he so desires. That would be pretty freaking awesome to watch. One infusing his attacks with Holy Fire and the other backing him up with defense and then both releasing Spiritual Gathering Halos.

        Also it will be hilarious to watch the number of fights for LHC’s attention increase. We’d have to make our own betting pool who will come out on top between Yating, another fairy, Cai’er, LHC’s Mom, LHC’s Dad, Yue Ye, or Hao Yue. Let the fight of the century begin!

    On an unrelated note I have been wondering this from the start LHC’s dad is well known but I don’t think his dad would marry just an ordinary person so I’ve had the suspicion that his mom is also some super powerhouse that is being downplayed for a big reveal later on.

    • Robin

      There has been an issue when his mother left Haochen’s dad out of fear to embarrass him and cause him problems. I long to know what really happened, since he tells her that it wasn’t her fault. But we still know too little. Maybe she is powerful and the pregnancy and birth weakened her (remember? She had a really feeble health), or she is not that strong and thus was cause of gossip/problems. Or she really is part demon. There are many possibilities.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        To be fair its hard to judge her power if she never releases it especially considering when LHC was around her he was only 1st-3rd step. He honestly couldn’t tell how strong his dad was until his dad actually released his power and used some of it.

        A possibility I can imagine is she has a great deal of power its just her body is now weakened so it would hurt her to bring that power out. Its hard to really tell since she was never put in a situation forcing her to use strength to protect her or Haochen.

    can someone tell me if LHC’s Innate spiritual energy is still 97?
    I think I read this somewhere over the rainbow after he obtain the pendant his Innate spiritual energy is rising is that true?

    • Robin

      After fusing with the light elemental spiritual stove and Yating’s two evolutions, his innate level of internal spiritual energy rose from 97 to 99. As you can read below, there is some debate about whether he knows about it or not, but it was clearly stated that it is now at 99. 😉

      • OmegaGoodJob!

        I see thanks for the info. I hope LHC’s innate level of spiritual energy would rise to 100 same as Cai’er and they would be the PERFECT COUPLE! >_<, I think he could if he can obtain another treasure.

        • Psyside

          Thing is it is 99 but even LHC doesnt know its 99 because he hasnt checked. While when caier got the stove or samsara as a kid her inate energy was checked. So every one even LHC thinks that LHC has a inate lvl of 97 instead on 99

          • Robin

            We can’t be sure about this. As mentioned below, only Han Quian can perform the contract with the benefits, and thereby, he should have noticed. Also, due to a numerical mistake of the author, he couldn’t take Sima as a reteiner without 99 as innate ISE. But true enough, it was never stated that he knows about it.

          • Psyside

            How can Han Quian notice if he did the contract before Yating apeared. Han Quian knows that LHC has 97. He didnt corect LHC when he said that he himself has 97.

          • Robin

            Simple, Sima Xian made the contract with Haochen afterwards.

    Thanks for the chapter!
