Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 349


Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 349: Haoyue’s fourth head, Blue Butterfly (I)

Lin Xin’s Blazing Phoenix Spiritual Stove gave his comrades a pleasant surprise, but he also suffered some backlash.

The more powerful a spiritual stove was, the greater the drawbacks would be. Cai’er’s spiritual stove was the best example for that. Although Lin Xin’s Blazing Phoenix Spiritual Stove couldn’t compare with the Spiritual Stove of Samsara, it barely belonged to the ranks of the first tier spiritual stoves as well, and would grow along with Lin Xin’s strength.

After the return of the Blazing Phoenix Spiritual Stove, Lin Xin felt his internal spiritual energy instantly becoming empty, while an intense burning feeling filled his whole body. This sensation gave him no other choice but to sit down cross-legged on his original location, and concentrate all his attention on resisting the burning fever. It hit him in fact both inside and outside, giving impeding him to an extent one may well imagine. And this burning sensation would last for a total of six hours.

In itself, Lin Xin wasn’t harmed much, and this state actually even increased his own connection with fire, and trained his body. However, this process came with extreme pain. Bearing it for six hours would undoubtedly be a great challenge.

However, Lin Xin was now in a rather good mental state. This was his first time using the Blazing Phoenix Spiritual Stove, and he didn’t expect the cost to be so great, but even when facing such great drawbacks, he felt absolute ecstasy. That was the so called rejoicing over learning great news. In this kind of state, the pain he felt didn’t even feel like much.

By relying on the powerful attack of the Blazing Phoenix, he gave Long Haochen and the others an ample amount of time to rest. With Yating’s help, Long Haochen’s spiritual energy and his physical energy recovered at great speed.

Although the Zombie King was pushed back to the base of the mountain, but Long Haochen still kept his focus on him. Like this, he could sense the changes on him after sustaining the attack.

To his pleasant surprise, Long Haochen found out that the Fire Phoenix possessed formidable offensive power. The wings on the back of the Zombie King were actually directly burnt to nothing, and his body had suffered severe wounds and injuries. Furthermore, the Blazing Phoenix wasn’t aiming at a single target, but also had effects on a large scale. All those elite zombies, Iron Zombies, and Bronze Zombies had died immediately, turning into ash. Only the Gold Zombies and Silver Zombies were a little better off, and had only parts of their bodies dissolved.

That was the action of a real mage, dealing extreme damage.

Long Haochen felt a lot better now, and returned to leading the others. He didn’t display his excitement overly, but Han Yu couldn’t help but laugh out loud, “Has-drugs bro, you finally revealed your power! You’re almost making my cheeks stream with tears.”

Lin Xin gave him a disdainful glare, thinking secretly: Are your cheeks even showing the tiniest tears? Why is it that from what i see, you are just laughing happily? However, because of the aftereffects of the spiritual stove, he could only use his glare to respond to him.

“Ruaa.”

Right at that time, a furious roar suddenly rang out, and the zombies which had been attacking without fear of death before, stopped in their advance.

The one letting out this roar was the seriously wounded Zombie King. He clearly looked infuriated, and sensed the terrible threat from them, but more importantly, he still didn’t target these humans at all. If he didn’t manage to kill Haoyue while he was evolving, he would then surely get punished by the Undead King. But now, he vaguely sensed that Haoyue’s evolution was almost accomplished.

The Zombie King didn’t keep approaching the mountain, but abruptly turned around. He faced his own brother zombies before suddenly emitting a dense dark green mist.

Immediately, all the kinds of zombies immediately melted in this mist like snow under the sun.

Having a bit of intelligence, all the elites zombies immediately fled upon seeing their Zombie King unleash this mist, but the ordinary zombies weren’t blessed with any intelligence, and simply turned into liquid. These liquid corpses seemed to form a slimy stream, flowing towards the Zombie King.

That thick dark green fog infected an increasing number of zombies, and continuously gained in scope, while the flow of liquid zombies entered the Zombie King’s body through his feet. It seemed as if it made him recover from all the damage he had sustained, but at the same time it caused his body to grow in size as the liquid zombies kept being sucked into his body.

Although Wang Yuanyuan and Han Yu didn’t have such a strong perception as Long Haochen, they could see what was happening before their eyes. The great density of the dark green fog as well as the enlargement of the Zombie King were right in their line of sight

  The two of them took the same action, and looked at Long Haochen, carrying inquiring expressions on their faces.

Long Haochen turned his head to look inside the cave, where Haoyue’s breathing clearly became heavier. He was reaching a critical moment. On the other side, as the Zombie King fused with his little brothers, his strength was shooting up rapidly. Even if their elements counteracted each other, in case his strength reached the ninth step or beyond, Long Haochen’s group would hardly be able to stop his attacks. And obviously, Lin Xin’s Blazing Phoenix could not be used a second time.

I cannot let him continue to increase his strength! At this time, the slightest hesitation could very possibly lead to their complete annihilation.

With a glint of golden light, another figure appeared at his side. It was Cai’er, who had been waiting in the Tower of Eternity for a long and painful time before finally being summoned.

The reason why Long Haochen hadn’t summoned Cai’er here before was that he needed some assistance in defense and not in attack, but right now, offensive strength was what he needed more than anything else.

“Cai’er, come with me. We have to stop that zombie from amassing strength. Meanwhile Han Yu, Yuanyuan, guard the cave well!”

While Long Haochen was still in the middle of speaking, he already started to propel himself forward, his wings flapping with full strength, directly aiming at the Zombie King. Their resplendent golden color instantly reached the peaks, just like a golden sun making its way towards the Zombie King.

When Long Haochen rushed forward, Yating also glinted in gold, right before disappearing without warning. When she appeared again, she was right at Long Haochen’s back.

The Glorious Holy Shield was stored in the Eternal Melody while Long Haochen was flying forward. Now, his two hands gripped Bright Discipline, while his spiritual energy was poured in with full strength. Bright Discipline carrying the ability Holy Sword, instantly exploded with strength, and emitted a concentrated white heat surrounded by an incandescent glow carrying a strong killing intent.

Astonishingly, Long Haochen actually shone in the same incandescent glow as Bright Discipline, and the same went for the four wings on his back. Everywhere the rich white glow passed, the dark green fog in the air was purified at lightning speed.

The Zombie King sensed the fatal threat, and smashed his incomparably large fists against Long Haochen.

In his incessant process of absorbing the liquid zombies, his body had grown more massive, and his now terrifying strength produced sonic booms as he struck with his hands. From this, one may well imagine the terrifying level he reached.

Long Haochen didn’t clash with him head-on, but used the Nine Long Footwork to appear on his side in a flash. While dodging, he raised the dual-gripped Bright Discipline above his own head.

Yating’s body rocked, turning into a golden flow of light that made its way into Bright Discipline. Immediately, the white heat from Bright Discipline turned into a dark golden flame.

However, right then, Bright Discipline gave off a buzzing sound, as if uttering sad calls. It was as if with its ranking on the basis of the Glorious Tier, it couldn’t bear the pressure from the dark golden flames.

After his blow ended up fruitless, the Zombie King instantly turned around, but what he saw at that time was a heavy sword coming down in his direction.

This strike caused Long Haochen to look entirely distorted. From the top of the mountain, Wang Yuanyuan and Han Yu felt dawn descending on a world of darkness, as if the rich light was purifying the whole world.

Bang.

When Bright Discipline crashed on the top of the Zombie King, with a crisp and clear sound, a terrible scene emerged. Even given the extremely good material it was made of, making it a weapon carrying the supplementary ability Holy Sword, as well as an absorbing ability, it still burst to pieces, and Long Haochen was sent flying by the terribly strong power of the Zombie King.

However, the Zombie King wasn’t so well off either. In this violent bang, a sort of snapping sound was mixed in, a bit like the sound of oil falling on a hot surface.

One could faintly see that the Zombie King’s two steel-like arms actually melted, even after reaching such a terrifying level of strength. An intense burst of dark golden flames engulfed him almost instantly, infecting all the surrounding green mist that disappeared immediately upon contact, unable to spread to the remaining ordinary zombies.
  
“Woah!” A mournful cry echoed from the Zombie King, who tried frantically to disperse the golden flames igniting him. He desperately tried to stop them from burning, and didn’t spare any cost for that, even spouting the dark green liquid from his body.

From his last attack, Long Hoachen also suffered great damage. However, he managed to insert the dark golden flames into the forehead of the Zombie King. Now, even cutting off his own limbs wouldn’t save him.

Long Haochen landed afar, spouting a surge of blood from his mouth. His hands covered the two sides of his body. He had some dislocated joints, and bled from several wounds.

He looked very miserable, but against expectations, not a single zombie dared take the initiative to attack him.

At the time Bright Discipline had broken into pieces, Yating regained her physical body, floating beside Long Haochen. Her face also looked very pale, as a result of the immense consumption from that attack.

After awakening as a god’s chosen one, Long Haochen obtained some special abilities specific to gods’ chosen ones. These abilities were all related to the Goddess of Light. The ability that made his body gleam with a white flame was called Spiritual Ignition, and enabled him to ignite his own spirit and spiritual energy to give a great boost to his own power. The produced might even exceeded his past Sacrifice ability by a lot, but Spiritual Ignition also had important side effects. After using it once, Long Haochen would be in a weak state for seven days. Using it wantonly would actually even cause a major decline of his strength, even threatening his own life.

    Thank you Totobro !

  • Stephen_H

    Thanks Totobro!

  • Asi k k

    Thanks Totobro 😃

  • Enuo Akatsuki

    thanks

  • Ragnarok

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • Psyside

    And he broke another sword… FFS…
    Also Caier o/ now she wont kill LHC

    • Robin

      We rename him sword-killer.
      Now there is again time for some new special weapons. 😉

      • Dragon

        Lol that name fits him so well but I wonder what sword he could get I mean he broke bluerain at that was a potentially legendary sword.

        • Robin

          Well, so far it is still not sure if Bluerain won’t emerge again. I can’t imagine it being gone for good. It will probably need some time before reappearing even stronger than before to match him at his new level.
          But yeah, there is a certain trouble finding a suitable replacement until this happens…

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair LHC is going to get a massive influx of Contribution points for selling off three Black Dragon Crystals. Adding that they are going to upgrade to Commander Grade DHS there is a whole new floor to buy stuff from with even better items! So buying a new sword shouldn’t be a problem. He might even be able to use the remaining Black Dragon crystals as material to make a new sword so that would be freaking awesome.

            In my Opinion yeah Blue Rain, Hibsicus of Light is coming back. The whole Lady in the Lake Yating and King Arthur aspect is something I am pretty sure the Author is not going to pass up.

            What I am looking forward to though is that thanks to this chapter we have now found out Yating can merge her spirit into a sword. They also said in previous chapters that Blue Rain, Hibsicus of Light is a sword made from a combination of two swords with intelligence. So this means that LHC will potentially be able to fuse three souls into one sword which could also have a soul…. It is going to be so awesome seeing just how much damage he can do with that combination.

            Other than fusing the souls into the sword it is also always good for LHC to have an extra sword so he can do Dual Dragons of Light and Water and follow up with a Asura Thrust afterwards like before.

          • Psyside

            He also got a masive ammount from Beating the Demons also. And i think Hao Quan gave him some for the crystals

          • Robin

            Yeah, he will receive massive point influx from killing some demons in the IP, as well as receiving some from the Knight Temple in exchange for Dragon Crystals. I doubt that he will sell the remaining ones. They are too precious as to exchange them for simple contribution points (which they will have in masses), and would also raise a LOT of questions if appearing in the exchange center in the hands of a newbee DHS. 😉

            Yep, the king Arthur story is a solid plot element and really sought after by many authors. Yating becoming the Lady of the Lake in being the one controling the sword was a nice twist.
            Since she is pure Light energy and one half of the sword is as well, there should be no rejection of her soul, and since the sword is able to grow with Haochen, it should be about the only weapon suitable and able to withstand the fusion with Yating so far.

            Haha, I think the author did this destruction mostly to send them on another shopping spree on the next floor!

          • Jonathan Hurd

            While he will definitely be getting a massive amount of Contribution Points for gifting those three Devil Dragon Crystals to Han Qian (which he will pick up next time he is at the Demon Hunter Center). I don’t think LHC or anyone in his team actually officially last hit a demon in the Illusory Paradise. The Fiend Demon was finished by enraged Gorilla, the Star Demon self destructed on his own, and the last two demons who died were sneak attacked by magical beasts. So while LHC and Co were essential for all the kills sadly I don’t think they got any points for killing them, T.T. On the other hand they managed to reap some pretty amazing rewards through extortion afterwards :D.

            Another thing I am curious about is if they get any contribution points for killing undead. I would assume no, but would be pretty funny if they did. The other thing I want to know is if Lin Xin can make any kind of pills based on Undead corpses. He did seem to say something about materials when he came in. Though he has liquidized most of the zombies he killed.

          • Robin

            Yeah, you may be right about the demons in the IP. And as far as I know, there were no points involved after Haochen slew the undead in the past. I can’t imagine that their device can account them, although it would be amazing!

            I wondered about the pill making bro as well. Since it seems that he can make pills out of every material he comes across, he probably will use the undead as well. But I ask myself, from where does he get the knowledge about them? Yating as well, whereby there is a better chance to explain her knowledge by her being a special nonhuman being. There have to be more records of the necromancers left than we thought.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair last time LHC went to the Hao Yue’s world and fought he wasn’t actually a part of an official DHS yet. So he didn’t yet have his contribution tile.

            On Lin Xin I think for him it might be less he knows how to use these undead and more like he is just excited to take some and experiment their uses. He has done similar things when he picked up the fiends bodies and such.

          • Robin

            Ai, you are right! The last evolution is long past, I forgot the details. Then, Haochen was not an official Demon Hunter yet. But still, I doubt it. These are creatures from a different world – and yeah, I know that demons technically are the same – but the tiles were specially created for demons, so I don’t think zombies will count.

          • Luke Confidential

            The point you’re missing is that the demons don’t only ‘also come from another world’ but rather they also come from THIS WORLD.

            Thus it’s distinctly possible that whatever metric the Contribution Tile measures when killing Demons is also measured while killing the undead of this world.

            I give it maybe a 50/50

          • Robin

            I didn’t miss it, but I excluded it in my argumentation since it indeed IS highly likely, but it was not yet clearly stated.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Admittedly figuring out how the Contribution Tile works is a bit hard since it is covered under magic, but I do think it probably won’t be counting the undead. Would be hilarious if it does since this just keeps adding to LHC’s wealth and hes going to be forced to fight undead quite a bit in the future so nice to add some more benefits on top of that.

            The other thing that I always kept thinking about is how nice this place is for Lin Xin. Since it is covered almost completely in Fire and Darkness Element this is probably a perfect place for him to cultivate.

          • Luke Confidential

            Not only that, stop and ponder a moment the not-entirely-negative side-effect of his stove that’s happening right now in this world filled to the brim[stone] with Fire.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I know right? If Lin Xin doesn’t come out of this with a whole new understanding of Fire I don’t know what it will take for him to understand it.

  • Psyside

    But dam caier used the stove 🙁
    Shes gonna get some spankin from Lhc when she gets home ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    • Eskyso

      She probably didn’t use it. Imo what she used was just the “new” True shadow after the merging. Also i doubt the backlash she’ll suffer from now on will be as terrible as before…

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Now now we all know that their relationship is not going to advance to spankings unless she almost dies after using it.

      • Psyside

        I duno… LHC got a bit frisky in that pool at Ilusory paradise ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

        • Jonathan Hurd

          I swear to you she is going to get some kind of injury and he is going to have to slap her butt to impart his spiritual energy to help her…..

          ‘No no its totally legit! This is the only way I can put in my Spiritual Energy I swear! Well I might be able to transmit it through your chest if you want to give that a try….’

          • Psyside

            Hahahaha. I gotta get some spiritual energy deep inside you…….
            ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

          • Jonathan Hurd

            ‘Yes it is completely necessary for me to have my clothes off while I inject the spiritual energy into you. Why do you ask?’

  • Zeth

    Thank you Totobro!

  • dreamer

    About Cai’er spiritual stove; since all 3 spiritual stoves have been merge, will she get some kind of backlash when using the power of 2 other stoves? Like the power of thousand strike or the shadow stove.
    Technically she only has spiritual stove of samsara which always caused her great backlash, but if she didn’t use its true (original) power what will happen?

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I would guess she won’t get a big backlash from using the other two stoves functions. The reason there was a backlash to begin with was the Spiritual Stove of Samsara lacked the requisite amount of Death Energy. Now that Cai’er has been able to soak in the concentrated Death Energy in the Tower of Eternity and the stove itself has evolved I think the burden on her might be lessened especially if she doesn’t unleash its full power.

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • ZaX

    Thanks for the chapter

  • Anto Wibowo

    Thank you very much for the chapter! The chapter title really makes me excited.

  • Jonathan Hurd

    Anyone else feel bad for Han Yu. I mean Bright Discipline was the sword he used when LHC was sword and boarding, lol. Now he can’t even inherit it when LHC finds a better one.

    • Robin

      Yeah, it is sad. I liked the sword, even though the names of the sword and the technique Bright Vengeance somehow always conflicted in my mind… But I am sure that Haochen will compensate Han Yu for the loss. And remember, they now have access to even better stuff and probably again an enormous influs of CPs.

      By the way, am I the only one who always thinks of the Credit Points you earn while studying when hearing contribution points, or CP? 😉

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I have to admit I wish Bright Discipline was able to shine for a longer period of time. I mean consider how long LHC used his Spiritual Grade Sword. I really did like Bright Discipline’s energy stealing ability. To be fair though at this point I think it was starting to truly lose any point considering how fast LHC recovers energy now.

        Still I hope LHC and Han Yu both get new weapons since everyone else shouldn’t be particularly lacking in that department. If Lin Xin gets that Crown Jewel put into his stave and those two get new swords then their team is going to get another massive power leap almost immediately after the last one, :D.

        Hmm, never really thought about CP in terms of Credit Points. Though to also be fair I spend most of my time avoiding remembering grades in school, lol.

        • Robin

          Well, credit points only really matter at university anyway.

          Yeah, those two need a weapon boost. I so look forward to it!

    • Luke Confidential

      I *always* feel bad for Han Yu. He was introduced as a badass [with unfortunate arrogance] who took his whupping from LHC, only to be forever doomed to stand not only in the shadow of LHC… but even in the shadow of the damned Battle Priest with only one point greater Natural [pre-contract] innate spiritual energy.

      The manhua even made fun of Han Yu’s limited utility during the Exorcist Pass campaign.

      I am desperately hoping he gets buffed in both fields. Having a dedicated support healer doesn’t really fit into this squad’s methods [even the damned antimage is gaining vast offensive potential] and thus far his support mojo is pretty weaksauce as well [this one was likely boosted to the nines by his combined stove, I hope.]

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I can understand your pain. I think Han Yu’s badassness has definitely jumped a few steps now thanks to the fact he got that Spiritual Stove fusion. Heals, protects, and recovers for people. Also now that Yating is so independent and she can cast high level priest healing spells the role of healer can be given over more to her than forced on him.

        I would say Sima is closer to a retribution Knight and Han Yu is more the Guardian Knight. Both are good to have around, but they still really need Han Yu to help out with his defensiveness since their team is in no way lacking Offensive power.

  • Erebus

    Thanks for the chapter!
