Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 325

Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 325: A spiritual stove that had never appeared before (III)

The gorilla came to her side, naturally looking at her with a lot of confidence, letting out a low shriek.

Hearing the gorilla, the young lady turned her head to look at Long Haochen’s group. Her gaze wandered over every member, stopping at Long Haochen only a second later. Her dark green eyes were immediately filled with an intense shock.

“Human, you’re the Scion of Light?” The young girl said these words in a very clear voice.

Long Haochen nodded, “Hello, little sister. We have come here to help you. What do you need us to do?”

He didn’t immediately give the others the order to join the battle, because he could see that this young girl had a good control over the battlefield. Under her lead, the casualties among the magical beasts were optimally minimized, and the demons were surrounded in an efficient way. In this situation, their addition would perhaps not be beneficial.

The little girl revealed a happy smile, replying, “Finally, there are some good news. That’s perfect. Scion of Light, protect me for now, please. Let’s talk after I turn this filthy group into nutriments for the Heavens.”

“Okay.” Long Haochen gave a straight reply. He took position near the young girl, and watched the battle in the distance from the hilltop, while giving simple orders to have his comrades cultivate.

“I am Long Haochen. You can call me directly by my first name.” Long Haochen told her with a smile.

As the girl commanded the battle, she turned her head and replied, “I am Ye Xiaolei. Although I don’t really like this name, it has been chosen by my older sister for me, and I cannot change it. You can call me Xiaolei.”

After saying this, her voice turned odd, issuing a series of orders. The magical beasts below once again changed their formation, increasing their aggression. At that moment, magical beasts kept joining the battle on the hillside. It looked like the nine demons wouldn’t were pressured hard. And furthermore, their battle power would be consumed as the battle kept going on.

Zhang Fangfang stood on the side, tightly compressing his lips. He was currently filled with complete shock. It was the same for the others who also had unusual expressions on their faces, occasionally peaking a glance towards the young girl.

The reason for this was simple, it was because that so-called Ye Xiaolei girl emitted a faint multi-colored radiance. But except from her, no other multicolored existence was on this hilltop.

Could she be the multicolored radiance that descended from the sky?

Zhang Fangfang had another issue he was puzzled over. Why would this young girl call Long Haochen Scion of Light? It could be said that they already held a considerable advantage because they were on the side of the Illusory Paradise! But how did Long Haochen manage to achieve this so smoothly?

The battle kept going on, and Long Haochen cautiously watched Ye Xiaolei’s command. Although he didn’t understand the language used by Ye Xiaolei, he could determine her commanding patterns.

Ye Xiaolei’s orders were actually not that complicated. First of all, she made these magical beast act as a whole, just the same as an army in battle, not letting them break ranks.

This way there wouldn’t be any meaningless sacrifices.

On the frontlines were magical beasts with astonishing defensive strength that could meet force with force, attacking the demons head-on, whereas the magical beasts on the rear were adept in magical attacks. This sort of battle formation was the same as the one used by humans.

More importantly, when the magical beasts in the front received severe wounds, Ye Xiaolei would immediately order them to draw back and retreat to the rear, joining some magical beast specialized in healing. Conjuring layer upon layer of green radiance, they would quickly heal the wounds, before the recovered magical beasts would return in battle.

Every time a powerful ability was launched by the group of nine demons, Ye Xiaomo would then put all her energy into ordering the magical beasts to retreat or launch their own wildest attacks, to either evade, block, or break through the enemies’ abilities.

The group of nine demons couldn’t be said to have such great coordination, but their individual strength was high. Even the strength of Yue Ye was a lot greater than in the past. Ah’Bao was all the more powerful, to the point that the magical beasts were unable to cause any damage to him. But even under those circumstances, they were being held back, unable to break through the magical beasts’ ranks, and the damage they managed to inflict to the magical beasts was limited as well.

Long Haochen had originally been unable to calm down, but with a commander such as Ya Xiaolei here, even those strong demons had a hard time assaulting them. This was after all the Illusory Paradise, her home ground.

However, Long Haochen also felt curious about the identity of this Ye Xiaolei.

The multi-colored light she emitted implied that she was very possibly the origin of the multi-colored cloud of light which had been soaring in the sky. However, how was it that she was shaped like a human. Could it be that she…

At this point, Long Haochen felt some astonishment deep inside, thinking about the words his father had told him before, regarding the tiers of spiritual stoves.

Long Xingyu had told Long Haochen that spiritual stoves were also classified into tiers, encompassing five different levels. Among them, the Saint Spiritual Stove Long Haochen possessed only reached the fifth, which was also the lowest one.

The tiers of spiritual stoves were divided based on their utility as well as their might and potential for growth, and also their overall evaluation.

The reason why the Saint Spiritual Stove was only at the fifth tier was that its particular nurturing ability had never been published by the Knight Temple, or else, it would very possibly have reached the third tier.

The great majority of the spiritual stoves of the fifth tier were either defensive or support-oriented, but very few were offensive spiritual stoves. Generally, they only carried a single ability, and had merely a possibility of evolving twice. The Saint Spiritual Stove was the only exception to this among spiritual stoves of the fifth tier. In the opinion of a lot of people, the greatest utility of the Saint Spiritual Stove lied in its use by a user with a relatively low level of cultivation, acting as the core of his team. However, with the increase of one’s cultivation, the Saint Spiritual Stove’s utility will decrease.

At the fourth tier, diverse spiritual stoves would be present. The overwhelming majority of them didn’t only possess one ability, and this was their main difference with the spiritual stoves of the fifth tier.

Spiritual stoves of the third tier also possessed two or more abilities, and were bound to reach a certain level of power in battle. The Saint Spiritual Stove Long Haochen possessed only had a pulling or attracting ability, whose ranges were also limited. They were effectful, but they couldn’t be called really powerful.

Cai’er’s Thousand Strikes Spiritual Stove belonged to the third tier. It was just that it had yet to evolve, which was the reason why the Thousand Strikes Spiritual Stoves was at the moment only able to activate a single offensive ability. However, in case she managed to let it evolve, the Thousand Strikes Spiritual Stove would gain a great amount of strength.

At the second tier were the most powerful spiritual stoves known to humans. Among the seventy-four spiritual stoves known in total, only seven reached this tier, each of which had at the least three abilities. Of course, their backlash effects were also be quite severe. There were also some with a single ability among this tier, but it would be an ability with incomparable power. Like for instance the Spiritual Stove which Cai’er’s father possessed.

Being able to get a spiritual stove of the third tier would let the user’s strength rise by a wide margin. As for a spiritual stove of the second tier, it was even known as having the ability of turning around an undesirable situation in times of war. And furthermore, the higher ranked the spiritual stove was, the more would it increase the user’s strength.

If Sheng Lingxin had attained the ninth step of cultivation, even inflicting damage to demon gods among the top ten in the ranking wouldn’t be impossible by using his Spiritual Stove of Return to Childhood.

As for spiritual stoves of the first tier, only one existed at the present time, and it was Cai’er’s Spiritual Stove of Samsara.

Spiritual stoves of the first tier weren’t classified as such for the number of abilities they possessed, but for the bursting power erupting when they were unleashed. The requirements for a spiritual stove to be classified at the first tier were very simple, it only had to make up for two steps of difference.

If a spiritual stove could permit its user to kill powerhouses two steps above their own cultivation, this spiritual stove would then be ranked at the first tier. Until this day, only Cai’er’s Spiritual Stove of Samsara had managed to fulfill these criteria. Of course, its backlash was also very well known to Long Haochen.

At that time, when Long Xingyu had told Long Haochen about the five tiers of spiritual stoves, he had also told Long Haochen a last thing; that in legends, another type of spiritual stoves existed, which could even exceed the first tier. However, it had been said to have only appeared in legends.

It had never existed in the history of the Temple Alliance, but it had been reported that once in the Glorious Era, the emperor of the most powerful of the three empires had possessed that kind of spiritual stove.

In legends, that type of spiritual stove was known as intelligent spiritual stove. That was to say that the main body of the spiritual stove didn’t take the shape of a heavenly treasure, but had a genuine living body, possessing advanced knowledge and intelligence. The possible evolutions for such a spiritual stove were unlimited, thus making its assessment hard.

However, Long Haochen had assumed at that time that this kind of spiritual stove was only part of legends and nothing more. But it didn’t mean that it couldn’t appear.

Looking at the commanding Ye Xiaolei, Long Haochen couldn’t help but feel secretly astonished. Could this young girl be one of the legendary spiritual stoves Father spoke about?

He couldn’t ascertain it, but if this was true, Ye Xiaolei’s identity wouldn’t be hard to predict. The older sister she just spoke about would then be the founder of this Illusory Paradise, whereas she should be its guardian.

Even with Long Hoachen’s disposition, he felt dazzled just by thinking about that. An intelligent spiritual stove, even surpassing Cai’er’s Spiritual Stove of Samsara! However, he quickly stopped himself from having such thoughts. No matter what, he couldn’t do anything detrimental to this young girl, and couldn’t permit anyone to do so either.

This feeling was truly sincere, and had emerged when Long Haochen had seen Ye Xiaolei for the first time. He didn’t know where this feeling came from, but it caused a change in his own heart, bestowing smile on his face. It was a feeling that gave him comfort and ease.

However, it was only the kind of feeling one gets from accomplishing good deeds. Not deeds one would do for the sake of some reward or to heighten oneself, but deeds coming from the depth of one’s heart. This would put one at ease, and set his mind at rest.

  • Baem LN

    Thank you for the chapter!!!

  • Belkar

    Thank you!

  • felix

    “and set ne’s mind at rest” what does this expression mean?

    • his, thanks.

      • felix

        Rats. It sounded kind of cool, wish it wasn’t a typo. 😀

  • Luke Confidential

    The harem is expanding.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      What makes it kind of funny is that if he absorbs her that will mean that he has two members of the harem permanently inside of him…. O.o.

      • Luke Confidential

        At least in Yating’s case you mean to say usually rather than permanently. She comes out whenever it’s time to work.

        • Baem LN

          the Loli will have to come out to work too. Maybe Yating and her will fuse together?

          • Luke Confidential

            That was my thought, that the Loli would assimilate her in a dominance-type fusion.

    • felix

      I wonder how they’ll sort out the “you get the next spiritual stove” promise. We all know how stubborn LHC is with his promises. I kind of only see the “death” option at the moment.

      • Luke Confidential

        That’s obvious. She won’t ackowledge anyone other than The Scion of Light as her master. They *cannot* fulfill the promise.

        They’ll probably throw him enough Contribution Points to Promote or something as compensation.

        EDIT: DUH! The Demons all have bonded to a stove! They only have to kill one of them to get one for him.

        • felix

          OH RIGHT. Good call on the demons part.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Was going to say kill some demons. God knows the Alliance needs to even the score a bit after losing so many DHS captains. Time for some future successors to leave their heads….

          Also if we assume the demons picked up every remaining stove except the four LHC’s team got their hands on they should have 16. So 7 out of the 9 demons more than likely have two stoves currently. My bet is Zhang is probably going to be forced to head out with the bead and report whats happened. Cai’er will get a Offensive stove and Han Yu will get a healing stove that suits them.

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • Luke Confidential

    Am I the only one who finds it hilarious that Yating and her kind are being labelled as Non-Sentient in this Spiritual Stove analysis? [Either that or they aren’t counted among the rest of the Spiritual Stoves.]

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Honestly I was also kind of wondering about that as well. If I remember back a ways I think a lot of spiritual Stoves have some level of intelligence and the Elemental Fairies are considered to have the highest among the known ones.

      I would think that what they mean is Ye Xiaolei is basically on equal if not better level as a human. Considering that Yating can’t speak in human language I think that would be the deciding factor potentially.

      • Psyside

        I think its cos a fary is a whole other level of criteria than a normal spiritual stove. Same how xiaolei is a different class. But look at it this way LHC gets the most op stove ever

        • Jonathan Hurd

          What I have to wonder is if a Tier 1 Spiritual Stove can fight off an opponent two steps higher and these Special Spiritual Stoves are stronger than Tier 1’s. Does that mean that if LHC gets Ye Xiaolei he will be able to rely on her to fight off someone of three steps higher O.o. The OPness factor of our MC might jump so high it touches the sky if he gets her, lol.

          • Psyside

            Well they are. And considering lhc is geting one…. God daym. But my biggest theory is that she will fuse with saint spiritual stove. They said stove fusion so it must happen

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I’m not 100% sure of a fusion between Ye Xiaolei and the saint spiritual stove. Their tier’s are just so far apart and Ye Xiaolei is already in a category of her own above all others. I think LHC might get another Spiritual Stove and fuse that one with his Saint Spiritual Stove instead of Ye Xiaolei.

          • Luke Confidential

            I think Yating is an inferior nature spirit/stove and that this Uber Nature Stove will assimilate her when she is bonded, ‘fusing’ in a dominant way rather than a mutual way.

    • felix

      Agree with Psyside, she’s a fairy so she’s probably classified completely differently.

  • Anto Wibowo

    Thank you very much for the chapter!

  • Jonathan Hurd

    I’m just going to throw this out there. LHC is now picking up tactics by watching how Ye Xiaolei leads a group fight… Which will be extremely helpful when he makes skeletons! Also before someone comments yes I know I’m obsessed with Necromancy, but this is the first time he might be forced to use it!

    • Luke Confidential

      Aside from Austin Griffon’s homeworld, there is no better opportunity to give it a field test away from the prying eyes of unsworn alliance members.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        That is kind of what I was thinking. This will be the fight that opens his eyes to the usefulness of Necromancy. Afterwards he will refine it a bit and then go to Austin Griffins world.

    • felix

      You’re not alone in your obsession with LHC doing necromancy stuff. I’m pretty much the same: “is it this chapter? oh maybe next chapter? …now? oh how about after [insert fight here]” tehehe

    • Psyside

      Meanwhile i sit here sayin necromancy meh…xD
      Thing is its cool but to op atm….he can crush any enemy easy if he uses it. Thats why i hope he starts around 7th 8th step

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I don’t mind it being over powered I just want to see what he can do with it. It seems so mean for the author to give him it and then be like ‘Now he will always keep this ace in the hole….’ Just one skeleton! That is all I ask!

        • Evilage

          Author ” okay now lets give the main character necromancy and let him keep it as a ace in the hole, only we will not show him use it(pure evil)”

  • Psyside


    • Luke Confidential

      She’ll make wafuls for breakfast daily.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        To be honest when I first read your post I thought you said ‘She’ll make Waifu’s for breakfast daily.’ I think Frued would love to have a look at me O.o.

        • Psyside

          Ir sick 😛

        • Evilage

          you were not the only one to read it like that
          I only noticed that it was wafuls after reading your comment lel

          • Jonathan Hurd

            That makes me feel better that i’m not alone, lol.

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • Mangaaddict

    Just throwing this out there, but I wonder if this xiaolei will be the one who will get LHC to use necromancy since it says she has a lot of knowledge so maybe she can get LHC to use it.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      The big thing I find interesting is that she is from a time before the great war between the Church and the Necromancers. So maybe she can help LHC get a new perspective on Necromancers place in the world and ease his worries about using it.

      The thing I predict happening is Ah’Bao kills or incapacitates most of the Magical Beasts with this spell he is charging. If he does that then LHC might really have to use Necromancy because his team versus these demons is just unfair even if this next blast actually exhausts Ah’Bao to the point of not being included.

  • Zeth

    Thank you very much Totobro!

  • Baem LN

    Is this sentence correct? I think something is wrong with this.

    It looked like the nine demons wouldn’t were pressured hard.

    • Evilage

      Nope, wouldn’t and were cannot be used like that.

      • Baem LN

        I think so too.

        • Robin

          Yes, thanks. The wouldn’t was too much.

  • Evilage

    Ah finally enough time to read this, i’ve been missing out a lot of this with real life problems and reading atg(finally caught up with the translations)
    wow this is getting really interesting now
    new stove(please be necromancy)

    • Baem LN

      Is ATG worth reading?

      • Evilage

        in my view anyways
        the story pacing is really good and makes you read it all the way
        the mc is a ruthless badass(at times) and a total womanizer(he gets married at the start of the novel yet he flirts with every beautiful woman he sees(i actually mean every))

  • Renegade

    Are we getting next chapter today?

    • Baem LN

      It should be.

  • fanatik

    Thanks again Totobro and many thanks to every sponsor as well.

    I was thinking something in the past days, and with this chapter i cleared my mind,
    and now i want to share my thoughts with you all.

    I will write this comment at least for the next 5 chapters, because i really want to know what
    you guys think about my idea.

    Just because it’s very long, if totobro wants to create a new section for hypotesis like this one, i’ll be even more glad
    and people who are interested can just comment below.

    Btw yes, i really am very proud of this assumption of mine! 😛

    (i’m sorry in advance for every name, story, or general english related mistakes)

    So LHC even just by waiting and cultivating he’ll most likely become the best knight ever.

    Let’s not forget the aid his father is going to give him by training etc, once they meet.

    3) TOWER OF ETERNITY. (energy balls)
    let alone the help from his father, LHC is gonna cultivate at ridiculous speed because of the TOE training.

    3b) TOWER OF ETERNITY. (skills)
    LHC and mates will learn weird old/new skills, some of ’em even more powerfull than the one provided from the temple alliance.

    3c) TOWER OF ETERNITY. (dexterity)
    with the aid of the 5th skeleton, he/they will reach previously unseen level of dexterity, and as in our real life, the author made
    himself clear about the huge importance of dexterity, perhaps even more important of skills.
    furthermore, we don’t even know what is awaiting in the upper levels of the TOE.
    With just the aid from the Tower, LHC is bound to become the most powerfull existence among humans.

    A few chapters ago, LHC talked about fusing spiritual stove.
    If the autor decided to let us know about this prospect, i think LHC will achieve this goal in the future for sure, 100% sure.
    Boundless power, astonishing attack power, or let’s say fast regeneration aid from a spiritual stove. A super huge boost for LHC.

    4) Pendant of Eternal Melody.
    Just 2 words: DIVINE TOOL.
    The 8th step demon from the moon clan, 2nd powerfull clan amongst demons, was being pushed back away from
    the pendant and Elux’s will, screaming in surprise:”DIVINE TOOL!??!?!”
    Now, i may be wrong on this one, but aren’t suppose to exist just the Thrones, as divine tools?
    So we can’t even imagine what LHC will get from the Pendant when he’ll reach the 9th step.

    Guys, LHC is the main character, is the story’s hero, so how can’t be him the one who will conquer the Eternal Throne?
    Chen Zidian, Demon God Slayers Demon Hunt Squad’s leader: <>

    I don’t know why many of you guys are just focused on let’s say “create skeletons” and use them as an army.
    My point here is: if i can create skeletons, let’s say 20 skeletons of the 5th step, this process is bound to require A LOT of energy; so why, why would
    i create 20 5th step skeletons, if i can create 1 top notch 9th step skeleton? And again, why would i have to create skeleton, when i’ve so much energy by myself?
    Can’t Elux use any skills at all?
    I really doubt, so i think that necromancy is more focused on assimilate energy from deads, than create an army of skeletons.
    Even if one can create 50 9th step skeletons, it’s not better to have 5 of them, but with more more power?

    Anyway, LHC will learn and use necromancy in the future, willing or not, and we really don’t know how important will it be, but we remember LHC saying
    that his father told him necromancer were incredibly powerfull.

    with boundless evolution, most likely the power will be somethink unseen in that era, as LHC said. And yes, he’ll be the one who is going to assimilate it.

    From the tale reported by the demon god emperor, even demon gods were like ants in front of a completely evolved version of Hao Yue, so let’s remember
    that he fights along with LHC. He had the power to half destroy a whole word back then, and he made the entire demos race cow away in fear fo him.
    I kept the Hao Yue section as last because really, he might become the most powerfull existence in the whole story.

    Now, i want to thanks every person who read so far, and finally i can focus every
    single word written above, in order to ask you just one thing: are we so sure the Demon God Emperor, will be the real villain of this whole story?

    quote from chapter 211: “And the Scion of Samsara from the legends took the Demon God Emperor down by himself! Even though at that time, the Demon
    God Emperor was already in a rather weak state, it was still a Demon God Emperor!”

    Let’s say Cai’er in the future reach the 9th steps, with the aid of both Stove of Samsara and the
    Thousand Strikes Stove and perhaps with many other stoves, has the power to take down the DGE by herself, or even just
    with the aid of her team; in the end of the day, LHC would be needed exactly for what? Because is gorgeous? I really don’t think so.

    So guys, WHO will be the real villain in the end? Hao Yue? Somebody who’ll come from another word? A necromancer?

    Let’s remember the talk among the DGE and Moon Clan Demon God; Fengxiu said he would like to assimilate the human race, not to extinguish it, in order
    to fullfill the dream of his grand-father, start a war to conquer other planets. So, other planets have their own powerfull existence, and eventually Fengxiu
    is not a crazy beast like other demons, he’s the one who knows demons need humans in different aspects, so i don’t see a future friendship as something
    impossible, more important if a super powerfull villain is going to apper out of the nowhere.

    Before someone says that, i barely speak english (as you have already saw), i don’t speak chinese, i don’t know anyone who speaks it, so this is not a spoiler.

    Totobro, i texted you on facebook about VPNs and about my comment below, it’ll be great if you can read it!
