Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 345


Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 345: Wage War Against Undeads (I)

Once again facing an ocean of skeletons, Long Haochen’s response was a lot more effortless than before, even though the skeletons present were more evolved. This showed how much his strength matured since then.

Last time he had to protect Haoyue, he had just gone up from the fourth to the fifth step, but this time, he was already roughly in the fifth rank of the sixth step in strength. Further adding the gain from his awakening as a god’s chosen one, he naturally felt no pressure facing these low level undeads.

Seeing Long Haochen let out a brilliant golden light, the moss green flames in the eyes of the twelve liches standing afar became dimmer, visibly showing their unease.

The pure light released a sacred aura that gave them a feeling of restless danger.

Even Long Haochen himself was astonished to find out that the skeletons that kept climbing up didn’t even dare approach further upon feeling the intense light essence in the air.

A sharp cry came out from the liches, and the bone staff let out even more intense aura of death. Immediately, the skeletons in the front started to collapse, shattering into pieces before swiftly fusing with each other.

This trick again? Last time, Long Haochen narrowly died because of it. This was the Skeleton King assembled by the liches. And furthermore, it was this time the result from the joint work of twelve liches, using an even greater number of skeletons, and would produce an even more powerful result than before.

Long Haochen was not as inexperienced as before, how would he let these liches do as they please?

“Yating!” Long Haochen growled, and immediately, a resplendent light was emitted from his back as his four immense wings spread out. With a flap, his body was already propelled toward those twelve liches.

Long Haochen’s spiritual wings were different from Yating’s wings of light. Yating’s wing of light had a transparent color that made them resemble to the wings of a butterfly, only making them all the more beautiful, but Long Haochen’s spiritual wings looked close to the wings of a bird, equally comparable in terms of speed.

Yating’s incantations were already prepared. Flapping her six wings, she took over Long Haochen’s position at the entrance of the cave, holding the staff high in her hand . During this time, an intense light element took shape in the air, transforming into a fist-sized glinting ball of light flying to the direction of the skeletons.

“Starfall!”

Although this place didn’t have any light essence, Yating was not only evolved thrice but also obtained the benefits from Long Haochen’s awakening as a god’s chosen one, and her fusion with the Saint Spiritual Stove, and her current strength was already close to a mage at the peak of the sixth step. A spell that she was given so long to prepare was naturally not a simple spell of the sixth step but a powerful spell of the seventh step.

Yating’s greatest strength resided in the fact that her body was originally fully made from light essence, thus she didn’t need to worry about being in shortage of spiritual energy like the human mages. The only restriction was the limit in the intensity of use in her power, and unless her elemental energy was totally exhausted, she would always be able to keep using magic. Of course, if nothing was really left, this would just forecast Yating’s death.

Starfall was a spell of the seventh step. And furthermore, it belonged to the type of light elemental magic exclusive to fairies, that humans weren’t able to use.

A wide expanse of bright stars smashed into the group of skeletons, and the most terrifying thing was that these bright stars had the length of an eye, aiming at the core parts in the body of the fusing Skeleton King.

The mass of golden flashes of light blossomed in the midst of the wave of skeletons, and everywhere the golden light passed, the skeletons were turned into grey ashes. The parts of the skeletons that were fusing with each other also crumbled, not given any opportunity to complete their combination.

At that time, Long Haochen arrived in front of the twelve liches.

After his wings became four, Long Haochen’s flying speed shot up. Although he was not an expert in flight for now, due to lacking training, he was still able to achieve a great performance in a straight line. Due to that, these twelve liches only saw a flash of golden light as Long Haochen was already in front of them.

Turning pale with fright, the twelve liches let out sharp cries almost simultaneously.

This ability was specific to liches. Called Hisses of Terror, it had some similarity with the brain-addling magic used by human assassins, but was a lot stronger, because, it depended on their soul energy to be accomplished.

Long Haochen had suffer losses the first time he confronted liches.

However, this time, the Hisses of Terror weren’t of much use against him. Long Haochen’s response was very simple, it was to wrap himself in Holy Mantle reinforced by Ripples of Light.

Even if the Hisses of Terror of these lichs was even more powerful, it couldn’t compare with the hiss from the specters in the Desolate Hissing Cavern! Since Long Haochen managed to comprehend the Ripples of Light, would there be anything for him to fear in these little hisses?

In the air, with a mere motion, Long Haochen forcibly broke through the ranks of the liches. Immediately, Bright Discipline was transformed into golden shadows, from his right hand. It was Demon Wiping Flash.

The liches’ powerful aspect was their soul, not their physical body. Confronting the suppression of Long Haochen’s sacred aura, their soul lost marginally in power. How could their mere physical body resist the powerful assault from Demon Wiping Flash?

The twelve liches were pierced in a mere instant, immediately burnt by golden flames. Be it their body or their soul, everything was engulfed by this golden fire.

This was the ability acquired after his awakening as a god’s chosen one, Inner Holy Fire.

In other words, all of Long Haochen’s attack would carry the effects from Holy Fire in its use.

Holy Fire was an ability that other knights could also learn, but they had to reach the seventh step for that. In addition, in case of use, Holy Fire would deplete a massive amount of spiritual energy. However, as a god’s chosen one, Long Haochen didn’t have to worry about this.

It could be said that after his awakening, the superiority of Long Haochen’s physique as the Scion of Light was in full swing, enabling him to surpass all knights of his same rank by a great margin.

After the ocean of skeletons underneath lost the command from the liches, it took only a while for these endless waves of black skeleton to disappear.

Long Haochen shook his head slightly. He appeared dissatisfied from this battle. This dissatisfaction lay in his unfamiliarity with his own abilities after this awakening. If he had predicted that these liches would be so easy to handle, he wouldn’t have instructed Yating to use a powerful ability such as Starfall.

Witnessing the entire annihilating of the skeletons underneath, he finally relaxed, flying back to that cavern. It was just that because of his excessive use of power during his flight, he staggered at the time of landing.

It looks that I should train my ability of flight. Long Haochen shook his head with a helpless look. These words weren’t without reason: battles between powerhouses often happened in the air. This was because, in the air, one could avoid harming allies and destroy the earth. Even the savage demons were often unwilling to battle with humans on the ground.

Yating giggled with a laugh, “Master, humans like you cannot fly innately. It’s natural that you are facing some difficulties to fly.”

Long Haochen gave her a strange look. After Yating was capable of human speech, he really felt a bit unwell. But the crucial point was that he didn’t know how he could tell Cai’er about this new side of hers.

Right at that time, a change suddenly occurred on Long Haochen’s expression. A kind of ominous premonition suddenly surged, as if a massive danger was about to arrive.

How could it be that right after killing the twelve liches and their army of skeletons, such a massive threat appeared so suddenly? What was it in the end?

Yating’s perception wasn’t the least bit inferior to Long Haochen, let alone that she originally formed one with him. She naturally had some awareness of what appeared in Long Haochen’s senses, and gave an astounded look afar.

“Master, a smell with a strong stench is approaching us. This enemy should be targeting our area.”

Long Haochen took a deep breath, letting out some soft golden brilliance. The four wings on his back were then lightly flapped, absorbing the tiny amounts of light essence in the air.

It wasn’t that this black and red world was totally devoid of light element. Another light elemental mage of a knight would perhaps encounter difficulties to be replenished here, but he was after all a god’s chosen one. Although he couldn’t possibly borrow force from that goddess of light here, his absorption and senses over elemental essence were still extra powerful.

“Make your battle preparations. No matter what kind of enemy we face, we have to protect the cavern well till Haoyue evolves.”

“Yeah.” Yating gave a swift answer, before drawing back, standing on Long Haochen’s lateral side. Looking the master before her eyes, her gaze was extremely gentle. The loyalty she had towards Long Haochen was already not as simple as the result of the contract linking them, but was due to the fact that Long Haochen’s existence gave her a new life.

Gradually, that threat became more and more powerful. Gazing far away, Long Haochen couldn’t help but grow more and more restless.

What is that? Suddenly, his eyes shrank, and immediately next, he started to gaze into a particular direction.

In his line of sight, peculiar living creatures appeared.

At glance, they looked like humans, formed of four limbs, a body and a head. However, their gait was totally different from humans. Their both feet kept jiggling, while their hands were stretched in front of their bodies. At each leap, they advanced at least of five or ten meters, heading here at flying speed.

At first, there were only a few of them, but as time passed, more and more of these appeared in Long Haochen and Yating’s lines of sight.

“Zombies! These are zombies!” Yating lost her voice in alarm.

Long Haochen asked in astonishment, “What are zombies? Is it a type of undead?”

Yating nodded to him, “It is a kind of exceptionally strong undead. In rank, they cannot compare with lichs, but they are a lot more powerful than skeletons, and are a form of dead humans. Their physical body was corroded by the energy of death but didn’t rot, and their soul became infected with death.”


  • Evilage

    Wow first? My luck is good today, as for the next evolution maybe ghouls would come?
    I’m betting haoyue to get two heads this time, probably water and lighting

    EDIT: body solid as metal? That just reminds me of a certain anime which is currently ongoing…*ahem*kabaneri*coughs*

    • Luke Confidential

      The collective consensus is that my initial prediction of Water and Earth is right, but only time will tell for sure.

      Also, I’d forgotten about Yating’s Staff. Now I’m wondering whether she’ll be dual-wielding Staff and Excalibur ala Gandalf, trade the staff for Excalibur or materialize Excalibur’s blade on the end of the staff for use as a spear.

      • dreamer

        That will be quite strange. [I also feels strange on the scene where gandalf use sword]
        I think after BRHL self repair is finished, she will hand it to LHC right before the battle like how LHC used to give Han Yu the bright disciple before battle.
        Now that I think about it, it feels like karma. Hahaha

        • Luke Confidential

          I certainly do feel there will be times she’ll hand it off, but I’m sincerely hoping she makes frequent use of it herself.

      • Psyside

        As i recall some one in comments did spoil the 4th and 5th heads…But that was way back and toto removed his posts xD

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Now I need to see a picture of Yating standing there holding Excalibur and her staff saying “YOU SHALL NOT PASS, HES MY MAN!”

        For the heads I am pretty sure they’re going to be the elemental ones still since there are still quite a few of those he doesn’t have. I think Water and Earth are more common, but Lightening also has potential of showing up. Just kind of want to see Little Water and see how its relationship is with Little Flame.

        • Luke Confidential

          Little Lake or Little Sea I hope.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Gotta admit I like Little Lake or Little Sea better than Little Water.

    • Psyside

      Im thinking undead king or something like that. Or a actual necromancer

      Where is this quote? I don’t see it anywhere.

          Yup at the homepage, or if you have e-mail notification you can also see the post in the e-mail notification 🙂

    • Baem LN

      What is the name of the series?

      • Evilage

        Pretty sure its the walking dead

  • Psyside

    Holy Fire Yea he wasnt op before give him a seveth step skill as a passive xD

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Whats fun is that he is also currently disconnected from the Goddess of Light so he can’t directly draw on her power. So this is the tip of the Iceberg of how OP he is, lol.

      • Luke Confidential

        That, and Austin Griffon isn’t available to fight by his side, which is like having TWO of him xD

        • Jonathan Hurd

          I swear once Austin Griffin gets back LHC is going to start having to fight Demon Gods soon to have a challenge. Not one of the top 10 but some of the Max 8th rankers with pillars.

          • Luke Confidential

            And then Cai-Er awakens

          • Psyside

            Actually Caier may awaken now? it is a war zone? hundreds of zombies and undead

          • Luke Confidential

            Indeed, this place is FULL of Death Energy.

  • Psyside

    “But the crucial point was that he didn’t know how he could tell Cai’er about this new side of hers.”
    This is how to do it. “I got a new waifu for you to curse” xD

    • Evilage

      It can also go like this
      “Umm Cai’er yating just evolved to someone more beautiful than you, what can i do about this, can we go the harem route?”

      • Psyside

        And after that yating was no more xD

    • felix

      He could just pretend Yatin is their little sister. Or, if he wants to get killed he could tell Cai’er Yatin is their new daughter xD

      • Majk

        Look Cai’Er back then in the poll I kinda lost it and well… Even the Scion of Light can not withstand your beauty. On the goods side of things because Ye Xiaolei used her life magic we didn’t have to wait 9 months and she even spare us the neverending sleepless nights but having her grow till she was a teen.

        • Baem LN

          How about Ye Xiaolei fuses with LHC then she turns into a girl with the same age as him. We will be watching 2 spiritual stoves + 1 Saint Daughter + 1 Princess of Moon Demon fighting for him… So envious!!!

          • Luke Confidential

            Something tells me after Austin Griffon and LHC take over Demonkind the DGE’s daughter is also going to be hot on his heels.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            That just made me think of a scene where LHC takes over everything and all of a sudden the DGE comes running over shouting “Shut up and take my Daughter!”

          • Luke Confidential

            This needs to happen.

          • Majk

            Now he needs an older woman to fall head over heels for him and his harem will be perfect.

          • Luke Confidential

            You say that as though Ye Xaiolei isn’t infinitely older.

            He’s also surrounded by teens, so it would make plenty of sense for her to mature into a full on woman form rather than align with his age.

          • Majk

            Well i mean a human like in their 20’s not someone who is thousand of years older.

          • Luke Confidential

            Does Yue Ye qualify? She’s half human and in her 30’s IIRC.

          • Baem LN

            I don’t think she is that old. She is probably younger than Li Xin.

          • Baem LN

            That is so freaking true!!! Any candidate crosses your mind?

          • Psyside

            Demon emperor queen?

          • Baem LN

            Who is Demon Emperor Queen?

  • Majk

    I’m stuck on the Liches getting pale with fright part. I know that it probably is just a metaphor or that it means the fire in the eye sockets but still it’s such a weird thing to say. Liches look like skeletons don’t they? So how does the skull get even paler?
    It’s a pointless thing but it has been stuck in my head since I read it.

    • Evilage

      Yes they are skeletons but thr skull can still move, not sure how by the expressions can also be shown on the face, i think thats just a metaphor which explains the fear in the lich’s face

      Note liches are skeletons but ones with high magic and intelligence(i play too many mmo’s)

      • Majk

        But just because they can move does not mean that they can get pale.
        I figured that it was just a metaphor (since it makes no sense otherwise) but it still bother me.

        • Evilage

          I didnt say that they got pale, i was saying fear was seen in their faces(or skulls), getting pale is only one side effect of fear, they might have a shocked expression begging for mercy or something?

          • Majk

            But that is the only part that was (maybe still is) bothering me.
            It’s not hard to imagine what they mean by it but I do not care that it is a metaphor. The saying itself used in this context just bothered me.
            Although I will argue that the expression was probably more seen on their green eye flames since a skull is a skull and unless they break it apart each time they make an expression it can’t really change form (well maybe except for dropping their jaws but I doubt that that would be it)

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Yeah I would assume a lot of the fear is showing in the Litches eyes. The other thing is that they are magic skeletons. They did say last time that the other skeletons are covered with black aura coloring their white bones pitch black. You could make an argument that the Litches were so shocked and afraid they lost some of their concentration and some of the magic surrounding their bodies left making the white of their bones shine through more. That could be interpreted as paling and its because of fear, :D.

          • Majk

            Wasen’t the balck aura only on the skeletons that the liches summoned?

  • agila0212

    Zombie apocalypse 😀 lol

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • Luke Confidential

    Point of reference, these are Jiangshi [google will explain, I tried linking wikipedia but Toto moderates posts with links and I don’t want to wait] not the typical zombies well known to westerners.

    • Pedro Gomes

      Yeah, It’s maybe not the best idea to just call them zombies or at least a note for people to get it, since this is Chinese I wasn’t sure if it really was about chinese zombies. Thank you for making it clear. I was thinking about the chinese ‘zombies’ on Shaman King that I saw years ago and after googling Jiangshi it wasn’t wrong.

  • Majk

    I don’t really like it when authors use the Jiangshi as models for zombies since in my head they are more funny than scary. I mean they jump at you in a slow and funny way while having their arms streched out.

    • Luke Confidential

      These clearly aren’t jumping slowly at all.

      • Majk

        Yeah but thats how they are usualy shown in media

        • Luke Confidential

          What’s the media we see most often? Western? Japanese?

          These things hail from China, I’d like to see some of their media depictions before passing judgement.

          [That being said though, I have one thing to say: Lee Pai Long]

          • Majk

            But Lee was special the rest of them (the cannon fodder) was slow and (to me at least) more funny than threatening.

          • Luke Confidential

            It’s a matter of scale. Right now LHC is far more powerful than anyone in that story ever got. Therefore his cannon fodder is far more powerful.

          • Majk

            That does not change the fact that whenever an author uses them I just imagine a scene where a bunch of dudes in classic chinese clothes is slowly jumping at you.

          • Luke Confidential

            ‘At each leap, they advanced at least of five or ten meters, heading here at flying speed.

            Which ‘flying speed’ is questionable, but I imagine it’s comparable to normal powerhouses of the 7th step [with two wings.]

            That’s anything but slow.

          • Majk

            Like I said I don’t like then because of the reference material in my head where they usually suck.
            Even if they are not slow I still find them to be the worst depiction of zombies.

          • Evilage

            I still find them more close to kabaneri from kotetsujo no kabaneri(ongoing anime)
            Metal skin and fast speed and stuff

            Maybe kabaneri was made from reference of zombies and Jiangshi?
            Thou hopping zombies is really funny

          • Jonathan Hurd

            It honestly is hard to feel hopping zombies not being kind of funny for me. Though I will say the whole slowly lumbering zombies seems even a bit sillier to be afraid of. If they can’t even move as fast as walking then all you would need to do is get a big stick and just stab them. After that if you need to rest get a ladder and go on a roof. At least the jumper zombies have some mobility and can get some height on them.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair I would say I don’t think the old movies really do the Jiangshi justice. I agree it always seemed kind of funny when I personally imagine them, but I think that is mainly because we don’t really understand much about them and why they are imagined in this way. I feel like the Movie industry really plays them more off for laughs than to be frightening.

            I think the big reason our culture doesn’t take them seriously is because of Zombie madness that has hit our games and movies. We have so many depictions of different kinds of zombies thanks to the Walking Dead, 28 days later, Resident Evil, and all the other things that I think we are just naturally biased on what we think zombies should be. I mean we have seen slow zombies, fast zombies, stupid zombies, coordinated zombies…. I kind of like the idea of a jumping zombie. I want to see how they fight and if they have some way of combining like those skeletons did.

  • felix

    So is the all mighty holy super sword now just part of Yatin or something?

    • Luke Confidential

      That’s the conclusion I and Jonathon have reached yes.

      Regardless of whether or not it’s truly part of her, it resides inside her at present in a broken condition.

      • Evilage

        Well since yating is LHC’s stove the sword still does technically belong to him, only thing is if he wants to use it he will have to tell yating to give him the stove
        Example if a company A takes over another company B the products produces by company B can be used by the company A since they technically are the same company

        • Luke Confidential

          No arguments there whatsoever.

          There’s just a bit of a disagreement over whether Excalibur [otherwise referred to as Blue Rain of Hibiscus Light] has fused with Saint Yating or just sits inside her.

          • Evilage

            It hasnt fused with her, it entered LHC’s body as it recognized him as its master and it was placed in the stove, since yating fused with the stove the sword is still in her but hasnt fused with her, the swords master is still LHC

          • Luke Confidential

            Of course the sword’s master is LHC. The fairy’s master is LHC.

            The two can be two parts of the same entity and still belong to LHC.

            THAT SAID! It would be kind of awesome if Yating pulled a Megatron and turned INTO an amplified Fairy Rain Hibiscus of Light for Long Haochen to wield.

          • Evilage

            It would be awesome but then again giving all the stoves abilities and support abilities to yating would go to waste so i doubt that would happen

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair the Saint Spiritual Stove only had about three abilities. The taunt, the Pull, and the gathering spiritual energy. So giving Yating these doesn’t seem too bad as long as she can work in tandem with LHC and he can activate them as needed. I would assume if she uses Taunt it will still force the enemy to attack LHC not her.

            For the sword I am really looking forward to its recovery. We already saw changes happen when LHC stuffed more energy into it. I think after it reforms it might gain some even greater power and changes.

            The biggest thing I wonder though is now that Yating has Excalibur (calling it that because way less words and I just like to :P). I wonder if it will allow her to use Water magic like it allowed LHC. I don’t think it would allow her to use it on the same level as her Light Magic, but still would be an interesting addition to her power and healing since they said the two can very well compliment each other.

          • Evilage

            Maybe the blade of excalibur will fall of and become and invisible blade or something? That would be cool, similar to saber from fate

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I think it would be cool to have an invisible blade, but I don’t think it would be possible with how people can sense energy. If it was an Assassin’s blade that would make a lot of sense, but it seems like knights would end up injecting Light Energy into their strikes giving it away.

            What could be cool though is the blade becomes just a hilt and he can extend it by placing Light Element into it. Just imagining LHC extending all his energy into the blade and it falling from the heavens at a foe like Ragnarok has come.

          • Luke Confidential

            Heh, that comment about the blade ‘falling off’ made me think of the Sword of Light from the Slayers anime.

  • Luke Confidential

    Anybody remember for sure what Yue Ye’s age is? I was sure I saw somewhere she was 30ish, but I could be mistaken.

    • Evilage

      Wait i dont even remember who yue ye is…. who?

      • Luke Confidential

        Moon Demon Princess

        • Evilage

          Oh yes
          We have been refering to her as moon princess that i forgot her name(moon princess > moon hime >tsuki hime?)

          • Psyside

            Yandare target no.1 xD

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I don’t know Yandare Target no. 1 might turn to Yating if she forgets her place, lol.

    • Indream

      When they first encountered she was 22 i believe, 30ish is Ah Bao.

      • Luke Confidential

        Ah, thanks for the clarification. So she is a mature woman, but a young mature woman.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          So LHC has for his current harem….

          Yandere Loli, anciently old Loli, Fairy, and mature older woman, lol. And for the hell of it Austin Griffin can be thrown in there. Though I guess you could say LHC is more a part of his Harem than the other way around….

          • Evilage

            And what if for each head haoyue gets turns into a human girl? His little sisters :3

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Actually that is an interesting point. LHC did say each head had a different personality. It could happen that one of the heads turns out to be female. I am willing to bet after this evolution Hao Yue will gain Human speech. He already had more than enough intelligence for it anyways and it will be funny watching the contest for LHC’s attention between Yating, Hao Yue, and Cai’er.

            Might finally force Cai’er to seduce him to get her share, mwhahahahahaha.

          • Evilage

            Okay i cant stop laughing after imagining that, just imagine? Onr dragon head seducing LHC while the other heads are being the 3rd wheels xD

          • Jonathan Hurd

            *Hao Yue’s female head winks suggestively at LHC*

            Hao Yue quietly whispers in LHC’s ear…. “I like it when they watch….”

            ….I now have to go scrub my brain with soap. It feels kind of unclean…..

  • Miluska Macedo

    Thank you for the chapter!

  • normal guy

    zombies? well, i had a doubt. Humans obviously know about the existence of the different worlds. then , how come they have been unable to find out the original world of the demons in all these years? not even one human sensed them in their world when looking for a stead? i dont buy it.

    • Majulio

      They are barely powerful enough to hold their ground, and they are even losing power and knowledge every generation… I doubt they can even think of fighting back at that scale.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        The other thing is think about how hard it is to open a Spatial Gate to begin with. Back when LHC was choosing his mount and was allowed to use the Array they already said the humans have no idea how to recreate the thing. Then add just how many thousands of worlds LHC searched through until he accidentally found Hao Yue in the Demon world.

        The last part would be what would be the point in searching for the demons world? Its not like the Demons are just going to agree to leave since they hold such an advantage. Even if the demons would agree to go back the humans have no way of opening a portal for them to do so.

        Another potential worry would be if they find the demons world and gain the notice of the place what if more demons come. To the humans the Demons arrival was an invasion. The biggest fear would be if they opened the door more Demons can pour in since they already showed they did it once.

    Why are zombies better than linches? Lunch should be able to summon zombies ugh darn author lol too much lms?

    • Luke Confidential

      First, these aren’t your everyday ordinary zombies. They’re Jiangshi which are quite distinct in their own ways.

      Second, they are generally inferior to Liches, but unlike skeletons they do have the ability to evolve of their own accord.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Basically its about the numbers. They would lose out to Litches individually, but it would probably be almost impossible to gather up thousands of Litches to fight for you.

  • Luke Confidential

    New Idea:

    Running on the theory that Excalibur merged with Yating, who else would like to see Yating pull a Megatron and turn INTO an amplified Fairy Rain Hibiscus of Light for Long Haochen to wield.

    With some sort of passive support aura that continues to back up the team [though less efficiently than with Yating acting as Priest] while LHC fights.

    • Evilage

      So your basically saying all of the saint stoves abilities which yating now has due to the fusion can be used by LHC while she is in sword form and that she can provide support to the people near a certian radius of the sword?

      • Luke Confidential

        That’s the idea. This wouldn’t be the first passive support ability we’ve seen.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Would be fun to watch. It would also be pretty nice if she fuses with the sword then LHC fuses with Hao Yue to make a super power up. That would also completely focus LHC’s strength even further than so he can unleash a super concentrated blow with everything Hao Yue, Yating, and he has.

  • Anto Wibowo

    Wait.. The lich goes pale? How does that work.
    Jiangshi huh. I wonder if they can be defeated with a smack of paper.
    Thank you for the chapter!

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Maybe we should change the name of the Novel from Divine Thrones to Divine Exorcist, lol. He fights demon, litches, skeletons, and now Jiangshi.

  • Zeth

    Thank you Totobro and kind Leopold!

  • Psyside

    Im a bit confused about one thing with yating. If she absorbed the saint spiritual stove. Does that mean Lhc cant use the pull ability any more?

    • Robin

      Yes, it was said that this ability is now part of her techniques/power.

      • Psyside

        So when the pull is done they will go for yating and not Lhc by what i understand. This kinda makes that ability useless…

        • Trollicorn

          Well if she flies really high and uses it, she can kill them with fall damage

          • Psyside

            Unless they are 6th step or more and then they have wings and beat yating to a pulp

          • Trollicorn

            She could become tiny and go in their mouths and then make them implode…

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I don’t think the pull is quite that powerful, lol.

            One thing I will criticize with how they word the Saint Spiritual Stoves ability is that he has the power to pull people or taunt them. The author seems to describe both processes as pull though which is sometimes confusing.

            Honestly at the level LHC is getting to the Taunting power is probably starting to fall off since his power has advanced so high. I agree with Luke that Yating can probably taunt people to LHC since she is still connected to him and it is his Spiritual Stove.

        • Luke Confidential

          Just because it’s her power doesn’t necessarily mean it targets her.

          She might operate outside of LHC’s body, but the nexus of her power is still inside it.

          Heck they might have the tactical flexibility to have it pull enemies to EITHER of them.

          • Psyside

            Hopefully it works that way

        • Majk

          Well it would still make the enemies focus on one target that LHC could defend. The biggest problem is that LHC can’t use it as he pleases now and has to rely on Yatings judgment in most situations. That may not be a problem since connected mentally but it seems that the connection is not as strong as for example the one he has with Hao Yue which would mean that he can’t do split second decisions about who and when to pull (worst case scenario she stops using it when he gets injured and gets Ca’Er injured instead).

  • Luke Confidential

    My body isn’t ready to wait for a standard chapter but my wallet lacks the cultivation to sponsor one T_T

    • leopold1983

      Yeah … My body too. And I think I killed my wallet because I depleted all the light essence in it. Only darkness in there. It died trying to protect me. I guess I’m gonna start cultivating again by rereading and note things to improve the wiki so I can withstand the wait 😉

  • ZaX

    Zombie swarm is coming! Thanks for the chapter

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I feel its more appropriate to say the Zombie Swarm is Hopping! 😀

      Gotta be careful of those Zombies they be Hopping Mad.

      • Luke Confidential

        Hop to it.

  • leopold1983

    Wow, never saw the comment section so lively!
    Thank you Totobro for the chapter.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      It usually gets this way if we have regular chapter next. Its a way for a lot of us to relieve boredom and amuse ourselves, :D.

  • RedDragonX

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • Sweetpea

    Are there just no updates at all if the donation requirements aren’t met?
