Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 317

Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 317: Crown of Heritage and Scapegoat Spiritual Stove (I)

Long Haochen and his comrades found themselves in a situation that didn’t need their intervention anymore. Before, the young Fiend had been caught by the Pull ability of Long Haochen’s Saint Spiritual Stove, and as he couldn’t directly attack Han Yu, he fell victim of Dual Dragon of Light and Rain.

And as that young Fiend looked unable to struggle free, the seal that was placed on his body was broken, and the sudden increase of his spiritual energy had caused the sudden rage of that gorilla.

Among the others surrounding Long Haochen, Lin Xin gave Long Haochen a meaningful glance, looking at the white spiritual stove floating nearby.

Long Haochen lightly shook his head, hinting to the others not to act blindly without thinking. Killing that young Fiend was one thing but obtaining the spiritual stove was another. With the gorilla having just grown to such a level, they couldn’t possibly resist him, so going for the spiritual stove was clearly not a good idea.

Han Yu said lowly, “It looks as if this demon has suppressed his own cultivation before coming here. It was because he challenged the rules of the Illusory Paradise that this change was produced. The gorilla has at least broken through to the eighth step. ”

Long Haochen replied, “It was the Great Demon God Reconstitution Spell! I’m afraid that this Fiend was actually one of the successors of the fourth demon god, the Fiend Monarch Saminaga. I didn’t expect us to end up disposing of such a big shot so easily.”

Lin Xin revealed a regretful expression, “It’s a pity that we weren’t the ones to execute the last blow. If I’m not mistaken, killing a successor of a demon god should grant a reward of at least 100,000 contribution points!”

Wang Yuanyuan reacted fast, “Be contend with the situation. If we can obtain even one spiritual stove, 100,000 contribution points won’t even be able to compare. Captain, that gorilla will not be easy to handle. Should we withdraw?”

Long Haochen shook his head, “There’s no need. Let’s wait and see. As long as we don’t act recklessly, it should at least not harm us.” His perception being so acute, and considering the addition of Yating’s and his own boost, obtained by being in the Illusory Paradise, he had actually all along sensed a change on the gorilla since back when he was attacking the Young Fiend. After being healed by his Great Recovery Technique, the gorilla’s attitude towards him became a lot gentler, and didn’t contain any signs of hostility.

The gorilla kept beating the demon over several seconds, before finally stopping. At the time he moved forth, the body of that young Fiend was entirely unrecognizable.

The gorilla’s thick hands had pounded the mass of mincemeat, and only after seemingly finding something in the remains, he turned back towards Long Haochen’s group.

Obviously, in his current state, he was really enormous, and Long Haochen’s group seemed very tiny in front of him.

That was at least a powerhouse of the eighth step! And very possibly, he had already reached the peak of the eighth step. It was only the fact the young Fiend broke the rules that made this large gorilla become so powerful.

Confronting such a magical beast, it was impossible to claim that they were calm. However, Long Haochen walked towards the gorilla without drawing back in the slightest, the Light Elemental Fairy Yating spreading her wings on his back, landing as lightly as a feather on Long Haochen’s shoulder. Inside the Illusory Paradise, she was visibly like a fish in the water; as a matter of fact, Long Haochen’s previously consumed spiritual energy was already totally recovered after such a short timespan. What kind of astonishing recovery speed was that?

The gorilla bent his arms, his two thick and powerful forearms touching the ground as the fierce look in his eyes gradually eased up. At this very moment, Yating suddenly flew out from Long Haochen’s shoulder, soared up to the gorilla’s nose and landed on it. This was a pretty funny scene, because as soon as the gorilla saw her, his two enormous eyes immediately converged in her direction, giving him a comical look.

Yating let out a series of melodious sounds, corresponding to the fairy language.

The gorilla clearly looked somewhat indisposed because of her. He lightly flung his head back, and sent Yating flying. Right at that time, the gorilla’s immense build started to shrink down to its original size, and the pressure he caused to Long Haochen’s group reduced accordingly.

Slowly coming in front of Long Haochen, its arm shot up, throwing a black thing towards Long Haochen.

Long Haochen unconsciously raised his hand and caught the object, before noticing to his surprise that this was an almost fist-sized magical crystal.

This magical crystal had a very specific appearance, or more precisely, it was crown-shaped. Entirely black in size, it emitted blue flames. Clearly, it was what the gorilla had been taking from the corpse of the young Fiend.

“This is…” Long Haochen gave the magical crystal in his hand an astonished look.

Lin Xin quickly ran to his side. He was a lot more knowledgeable than Long Haochen regarding this sort of fantastic items.

“A Crown of Heritage! There’s no doubt that this guy had been the successor of the Fiend Monarch Saminaga, and he was very likely ranked among the strongest. Only upon the death of a demon god would this specific crown-shaped magical crystal appear, and it can also appear for some successors of demon gods. It’s a real treasure that we have gotten. This thing alone is worth more than 100,000 contribution points! And reportedly, demons using a Crown of Heritage by setting it on a weapon, have been able to use its power to raise their strength by a whole level. However, you are unfortunately unable to use it, boss. The demons’ Crowns of Heritage can only be used by talented people of elements other than light. Else, the combination of light and darkness would produce terrible aftereffects.”

After pondering for a little, Long Haochen declared, “Let’s use this thing on your Fire Cloud Staff. After heading back, we’ll look for someone to set it on.”

“What?” Lin Xin looked startled, “But, this is no good, we’d better exchange it for some contribution points!”

Long Haochen was unable to help laughing at that, “How can’t you compare the benefits? What do you think the contribution points are used for, as our team’s god of wealth? What else is more important than increasing our strength? Since this thing is actually such a rare treasure, do you believe we should immediately use it to increase our power, or exchange it for some contribution points? We will give the good treasures to those in the team who are suited to use it. This is just common sense.”

Finishing his sentence, he bowed to the gorilla, “Thank you, friend of the forest.”

The gorilla let out a low roar, suddenly pointing a finger towards Long Haochen.

Staring a bit blankly, Long Haochen didn’t know what to do, but Yating came flying and pulled Long Haochen’s hand with both of her hands, placing it on the finger of that gorilla

Immediately then, bizarre fluctuations of spiritual energy were spread from the finger of this robust gorilla to Long Haochen’s body.

Long Haochen’s body in response glowed in a drizzling luster, and around the gorilla’s body appeared an undulating yellow radiance.

A moment later, a look of surprise gradually appeared in the gorilla’s eyes. Slowly lifting up his hand, he took two steps back before suddenly standing straight, his fists thumping on his chest, before letting out a strong howl. Giving a reluctant look to the nearby milky white spiritual stove hanging on the tree, he opened up his mouth, spouting a yellow brilliance illuminating the spiritual stove.

The spiritual stove floated in the air, flying in Long Haochen’s direction, but stopped right in front of him.

The gorilla suddenly turned around, and ran away. His consecutive low roars seemed to be filled with a reluctance to part as he kept howling over and over.

“He gave us this spiritual stove?” Sima Xian looked astonished.

Long Haochen nodded silently, “It should be so. Grandpa Ling said that one would need to pass through two trials to obtain the spiritual stoves contained in the Illusory Paradise. One way to obtain them is what we just did. By influencing the magical beast guardian to willingly hand over the spiritual stove. But when using the other method, killing the guardian beast to get the spiritual stove, the trials get a lot harder. And this applies for the final trial as well.”

Sima Xian nodded in response, “Boss, hurry up to fuse with it. We’ll see afterwards if there are others for ourselves.”

The others thought of this as a matter of course. Long Haochen was the core and leader of the team, and with this spiritual stove in addition being a non-elemental one, it was the natural choice to them to have him immediately use it to increase his strength.

Long Haochen shook his head, “I said just before that the decent treasures would go to the fitting person. Sure, I can use this spiritual stove, but I’m not it’s most fitting user. Come on, Ying’er, and assimilate it.”

“Me?” Chen Ying’er pointed to her own nose, giving Long Haochen a puzzled look saying that she didn’t understand why she unexpectedly should be the one to get the first spiritual stove.

Chen Ying’er was not only didn’t rejoice at his decision, but instead looked unconvinced, “Captain, aren’t you thinking that I am the most useless in the team, thus wanting to increase my strength as a priority? ”

Long Haochen laughed in spite of himself, “What nonsense are you blabbering? Hurry up and absorb it, it’s an order. How could you still call yourself weak? Just wait for McDull to evolve! Afterwards, this guy will evolve from a magical beast at sixth rank to a magical beast at the seventh rank. At that time, as long as we have the suitable magical crystals, he should be able to display a strength of magical beasts at the eighth rank. And this is still weak? This spiritual stove is the most fitting to you so hurry up and absorb it right now. As you absorb it, I’ll explain to everyone why you are the most suitable choice. ”

Only then did Chen Ying’er look happy over his decision, running to Long Haochen’s side in high spirits, before taking out her spherical Crystal Ball.

Specks of white light floated out from both of her hands. The instant she poured them into the Crystall Ball, it released a radiance and Chen Ying’er’s whole body was surrounded by soft undulations of spiritual energy.

The Crystal Ball flashed, emitting white light which enveloped the spiritual stove, pulling it before Chen Ying’er.

Chen Ying’er’s pretty face immediately sobered up. Biting the forefinger of her right hand, she let a drop of her blood fall onto the spiritual stove.

Immediately, a rich white radiance burst out, completely enveloping Chen Ying’er.

  • Psyside

    I rly wonder what buff lin xins wep is gonna get and what that stove will do. Also fusing stoves…
    K new theory caier fuses her stove with anoter makin it super op xD
    And LHC gets one too

    • felix

      Probably an item attack.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      The bombs they just nonchalantly drop are kind of amazing, lol. Hey guys did you know we can fuse stoves? Well now you do.

      LHC is so getting a fused one. I feel like it probably won’t be with Yating since she has conciousness, but maybe with the Saint Spiritual Stove and another one.

      • Psyside

        agreed i think it wont be yating also. But yating is gonna evolve to 3rd form soon. But even if it is a bomb i think it kinda makes sense so its a bit justified

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Oh it makes sense I just find it funny how they drop that this is possible in the middle of this arc in a narration, lol. Usually they would be having some big discussion about the possibilities of things and such to get information this shocking.

          I would also say I don’t think Yating is going to fuse with other stoves because she already has the fourth evolution which is past the norm for her power increase.

          I am also looking forward to her getting her third evolution and seeing what kind of effect going from 99 Innate Spiritual Energy to 100 has.

          • Psyside

            I think he will get 100 before that cos he will get a third stove 100%. And fusing with 1 more stove will up his Spiritual energy before yating evolves

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair not every fusion with a Spiritual Stove increases Innate Spiritual Energy. For instance his innate talent didn’t go up after fusing with the Saint Spiritual Stove. It would be interesting though if he got another stove that could increase it. To me I think Yating might evolve from the increase of light energy when he fuses with his third stove.

  • Jorge Fernandes Freitas

    Thanks for the Chapter, the preview of the next chapter you pasted as double, just saying ^^,.

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • Zeth

    Thank you very much Totobro and kind sponsors!

  • Luke Confidential

    Note for Toto or Editors: The same text repeats twice in the preview.

  • Jonathan Hurd

    Anyone else feel like Ying’er should summon her piggy and have him try to sniff out more stoves or heck at the very least some more rare herbs for Lin Xin’s alchemy. I would honestly laugh so hard if the herbs her piggy found were tubers and truffles.

    • Psyside

      That would be hilarious

    • Stephen_H

      Yes, I have been wondering why we haven’t seen little piggy can find treasure ability being used.

  • Xias

    Thanks for the chapter.

    Btw. your preview for the next chapter repeats itself from the beginning after this sentence:

    [However from this, it could be seen how superior fused spiritual stoves were compared to ordinary spiritual stoves.]

  • Jonathan Hurd

    So new bet to establish. I am going to say that everyone is going to leave with at least one treasure or a stove (excluding LHC at least and probably Cai’er still think they are getting two stoves). Ying’er now has a stove and Lin Xin has gotten that Magic Crystal so I think that will be their booty for this journey. It doesn’t seem likely they are getting more goodies.

    So the question now becomes. Who will be next on the list and if they will get a stove or potentially some other treasure. I will say I think Wang Yuanyuan might actually end up getting a magic crystal for her shield here. I have no clue how she is going to find one, but that is the only way I can imagine her increasing her weapons attack power. I would say I doubt her getting a stove since they said this place mainly has earth, fire, water, and Light stoves. So that crystal will probably be her prize.

    Han Yu in my book is definitely getting a stove that will help with healing. Mostly because he is the only one in their team who could use that kind and because he is in need of a power up to his healing ability.

    Sima Xian is a bit weird for me when it comes to Spiritual Stoves. Since the only kind of stove I can imagine him using is Offense ones and those could in most situations be used by LHC. I will say that if they are deciding an order Sima Xian will probably receive his last in deference to Cai’er and LHC getting one if possible.

    Cai’er I am betting gets the first element less attack based Stove.

    LHC I am still keeping my money on him finding two stoves. I will bet that the first one he gets is a defensive Spiritual Stove. That would obviously also go to him first since he is the Main tank of the team with Han Yu as off tank. The second one will probably be an offensive stove, but it will be either the second offensive stove they find since the first will go to Sima or it will be one that is specialized for knights.

    • Psyside

      I dont think Wang Yuanyuan will get a crystal. She will get a stove 100%. You have to remember it did state any elemental stove can apear but its mainly those elements. So they may get “Lucky” to drive the plot and boost their team. I think all of em will get a stove. With Han yu i agree healing or deff 100%.
      For Lin xin i think he gets a fire stove. Sima is Light or neutral element.
      Caier is tricky. She may get a Death stove wich would be awesome or a neutal one.
      But any of em geting 2 stoves… i dont see that.
      Also about caier i have a small theory too. She meets up with Demon Waifu that could be rly possible

      • Jonathan Hurd

        To me Cai’er is so meeting up with Demon Waifu. That will be fun to watch.

        For the Scapegoat Spiritual Stove’s effect….What keeps popping into my mind is something like substitution jutsu like in Naruto. When you get hit by an attack it replaces you with something else. I think if it forced people to not target you then LHC probably couldn’t say he could use it. Still there is definitely a chance it works similar to the Saint Spiritual Stove and forces someone to attack a certain target. The only thing I would be curious about, if that is the case, is if you could force enemies attacks to target other enemies. Seems like if so there would probably need to be some limits on that compared to the Saint Stove.

        • Psyside

          Well if it does force people to not attack that person it makes rly solid sense why he would give it to her. Since a summoners deffense is low and nearly ever one else on their team(All but Caier) has high Deff

          • Jonathan Hurd

            My brother offered up an idea he came up with. What he thought up is that maybe the Stove creates some kind of object, and whenever the user would take a hit the created object takes the damage instead. Would work similar to the idea of ninja substitution, but the advantages would probably be that until the created object is destroyed completely you can’t take damage.

  • Rafał K

    My question is ho took the weapon (Glorious Tier) from the body of the oung Fiend?? The Sword of Blue Flames or they leave it there??

    • Psyside

      I think they leave it. Mby moneky destroyed it

      • Luke Confidential

        They haven’t left that spot yet.

        I’m actually rather intrigued by the idea that it might be reforged into Lin Xin’s Firestaff, turning it into a Firespear of somesort [Fire Naginata perhaps?]

        This team is already crazy weird, it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if he transitioned from ‘alchemist and support mage’ to ‘alchemist and blade wizard with support.’

        Not that I expect it by any stretch, but it would be pretty awesome.

    • Robin

      They didn’t leave the place yet, so if it is still there, they can still pick it up.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I think the Sword of Blue Flames has probably been crushed thanks to the monkey. The current theory I have is that the Fiends Sword was actually using the Crown Crystal to power it. I think this from when the story says “And reportedly, demons using a Crown of Heritage by setting it on a weapon, have been able to use its power to raise their strength by a whole level.”

  • Robin

    Thanks to all for the info about the preview. It has been noted and will be corrected soon. 😉

  • Anto Wibowo

    Thank you for the chapter!

  • Luke Confidential

    Seriously, who else thinks it would be entertaining [and totally fit in with the rest of Haochen’s Team’s Theme] if that Glorious Flame Sword were reforged into Lin Xin’s Firestaff and he took advantage of SkeleSensei’s lessons [and whatever alchemy needed to acquire an appropriate body and External Spiritual Energy for the task] to become a Blade Wizard.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Melee mage Lin Xin…. That would be kind of hilarious if LHC’s entire team except the cute little girl becomes melee experts. Make the team even more weird than it already is. Still want to see Necromancer LHC leading an army of Skeletons personally.

      Whats interesting is I think the Fiend was using the Crown Crystal to make his sword glorious tier. Considering the boost it helped him achieve I would say that Lin Xin’s stave that is already at the peak of Glorious should probably easily break through into Legendary if not close to even Epic.

      • Luke Confidential

        Don’t forget the melee prowess that cute little girl’s pig has been cultivating and will hopefully have the skill to adapt to his transformations.

  • Orario MAL

    Thank you for the chapter!

    Thanks for the chapter!
