Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 350

Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 350: Haoyue’s fourth head, Blue Butterfly (II)

The dark golden flames were actually an ability obtained from Yating’s evolution. Possessing a physical body didn’t alter her characteristics as an entity made of energy. Thus, she was still able to change herself into a being of pure and rich light essence. In this state, she could fuse with any of Long Haochen’s weapons, temporarily becoming the soul of this weapon, and igniting that weapon to produce a great gain in power. Simply said, the weapon would get destroyed after a single use, unless its materials could endure the pressure of weapon soul such as Yating.

Long Haochen knew well that his own cultivation wasn’t enough to have any chance of defeating the Zombie King, but what this enemy feared the most was his attribute, not his fighting strength. Thus, he depended on the Spiritual Ignition and Yating’s help to cause his light attribute to reach its supreme peak. Now, even if the Goddess of Light herself was present, the light she could summon wouldn’t exceed Long Haochen’s attack in purity.

The Zombie King was certainly powerful, but he was facing an absolute elemental suppression, and couldn’t sustain this blow he had just taken. It wasn’t his body that ended up seriously wounded, but his soul.

In the air, a pitch-black figure appeared above the head of the Zombie King, immediately fusing her killing intent with a grey flash of light. Afterwards, that black figure actually split in two. One part of it came to a standstill in the air before dissipating, while the other rushed to Long Haochen like lightning, holding his hands with both of her hands to help him recover.

“Why are you using the Spiritual Stove of Samsara?” Long Haochen called out in panic.

The Zombie King came to a standstill, and stopped yelling and struggling, before slowly falling to the ground. He had lost any ability to resist the dark golden flames that spread to his entire body.

The Zombie King truly deserved the appellation of undead king. Even in a situation where his own soul-fire stopped burning, his body still didn’t turn into ashes, but only kept burning.

The distant zombies who now had lost their king, and sensed that the light that appeared in front of them was incomparably terrifying, didn’t keep trying to attack and just ran away in disarray.

Cai’er supported Long Haochen, helping him to stand up, and said with a little smile, “Don’t worry, I’m okay.”

Long Haochen looked carefully at her, asking in a serious tone, “Which of your senses did you just lose?”

Cai’er replied with a happy smile, “I haven’t lost any of my senses this time. Who is she?” Asking that, she changed directions to look at the girl clad in very revealing clothes. floating near Long Haochen.

Against even Long Haochen’s expectations, the very cute Yating went up and declared, “Mistress, I am Yating, Master’s Light Elemental Fairy! After the fusion between Master’s spiritual stoves, my body made of energy gained in substance and became this way.”

Cai’er asked in astonishment, “You’re Yating?”

Looking at her before shooting the nearby Long Haochen a glance, Cai’er was obviously displeased.

Although Long Haochen had predicted this reaction long ago, he didn’t expect this situation to come so fast. Urgently changing the topic, he asked, “Is that Zombie King dead?”

Cai’er nodded, “My Spiritual Stove of Samsara is the most effective stove for overpowering this kind of souls, and is extremely efficient against undeads.”

After being summoned by Long Haochen, Cai’er immediately followed Long Haochen and made herself invisible. Seeing the white flames igniting Long Haochen, she immediately understood that he had a way to handle the Zombie King, and thus didn’t intervene directly.

When the Zombie King ended up being seriously wounded by the sacred holy flames, Cai’er had used the Dagger of Samsara from her Spiritual Stove of Samsara to launch a fatal blow against the Zombie King, thoroughly causing his soulfire to stop burning. Having lost his soul, the Zombie King became no more but the corpse of a king.

Having eradicated the threat of the zombies, the two of them returned into the cave in the mountainside, where Han Yu healed Long Haochen’s wounds. However, the weak state from Soul Ignition couldn’t be treated through normal means, and a period of seven days would be certainly necessary.

This time, Long Haochen finally had the time to tell all the details to the others.

“I really didn’t expect that Haoyue would be coming from such a world!” Wang Yuanyuan gasped. No good opinion could possibly be formed from her seeing this poisonous world filled with undeads.

Cai’er wrinkled her brows, “Haochen, if some other undeads lead an attack, what’s to be done in case we cannot resist?”

Everyone knew that some time was required to reactivate his Eternal Melody, and had thoughts of the same kind. It was just that it wasn’t an easy question to ask for them, but Cai’er didn’t have those qualms, as this was related to their following course of actions as well as everyone’s safety. In case a problem occurred, their life would be threatened, especially since their current state wasn’t so good.

Lin Xin was suffering the side-effects of his spiritual stove, and Long Haochen was also suffering the backlash of Soul Ignition. The great majority of his fighting power was already lost due to that. The only ones left were Cai’er and the two others, but in case another powerhouse such as the Skeleton King appeared, they would undoubtedly face total annihilation, unless Cai’er used the Spiritual Stove of Samsara to its fullest.

Long Haochen murmured irresolutely, “Even if another powerful undead creature appears, we can still only wait for Haoyue’s evolution to finish. But be at ease everyone, I currently have the ability to forcefully trigger the Eternal Melody to teleport us back to the Tower of Eternity.”

Hearing him say this, everyone relaxed a bit. It was good since, they had an escape route. In the meantime, they couldn’t help but feel even more admiration towards Long Haochen’s careful planning.

Long Haochen declared, “It looks as if everyone gained powerful abilities from obtaining these new spiritual stoves. Let’s quickly tell each other about their effects to avoid affecting our strength as a whole.”

“Everyone already saw Yating’s evolution. She’s now capable of human speech, and can fight on her own, too. Being a light mage, she’s actually also capable of attaching herself to my weapon in crucial times, to help my offense. However, this comes with the cost of sacrificing that weapon, and will still consume some of the power of light belonging to Yating. Afterwards, she requires some time to recuperate.”

With the exception of Cai’er, everyone had gotten to see the powerful influence Yating had on the battlefield. Her evolution to this state was extremely fortuitous, and a great part of it was due to the boost from the Illusory Paradise as well as Long Haochen’s awakening as a god’s chosen. Her current state was undoubtedly fit to be called a totally unrivalled spiritual stove of first tier.

Perhaps Yating’s immediate fighting power couldn’t match other spiritual stoves of the first tier, but never forget that the more powerful the spiritual stove is, the bigger it’s following after-effects would be. But what were Yating’s aftereffects? According to Long Haochen’s words, she didn’t have any! And she had great potential for growth, following Long Haochen’s growth and evolution.

Cai’er seemed to have been convinced, and watching the pale-faced Yating who was trying to absorb the little light essence of this world, she nodded lightly, “Yating’s evolution will be of great help to our team. Now we have gained a light mage and priest for the future.”

Long Haochen asked, “How about you? After fusing your spiritual stoves, what ability did it gain from evolving? At that time, you had to bear such stong pain from fusing three spiritual stoves, so the boost shouldn’t be low right?”

Hearing him mention the fusion of her own spiritual stoves, Cai’er’s face immediately turned red, as she couldn’t help but recall that embarrassing scene. Shooting him a ferocious glance, she replied, “The ability I gained from my fused spiritual stoves is something you have already seen just before.”

“We have already seen it?” Long Haochen looked at her with some misgivings.

Cai’er nodded, “My situation is rather extraordinary, because one could say that the Spiritual Stove of Samsara engulfed the two others in its own evolution, rather than fusing with them. I can now feel that I can use the might from the Spiritual Stove of Samsara once per day without any aftereffects. And this is because I got the Spiritual Stove of True Shadow in the Illusory Paradise, enabling me to also give my shadow real offensive power. After the fusion, as long as I use the Doppelganger ability at the same time as using the Spiritual Stove of Samsara, during its first use per day, the illusion of me will suffer the aftereffects of the spiritual stove in my stead. After evolving, the Spiritual Stove of Samsara also enables me to use the power of the Thousand Strikes Spiritual Stove through the Dagger of Samsara once per day.”

Hearing Cai’er’s explanation, everyone including even Long Haochen couldn’t help but take a series of gasp.

It looked like the fusion of the three spiritual stoves gave Cai’er a considerable boost in strength, actually even preserving her past abilities. In truth, her strength gained an absolutely monstrous boost.

Just think, getting to use a spiritual stove without any drawback once per day, just how terrifying was that? And that was to say nothing about how the Dagger of Samsara could actually bring out the power of the Thousand Strikes Spiritual Stove.

On the other hand, Cai’er could even use the Dagger of Samsara once everyday with no cost.

The Dagger of Samsara was a true divine tool, known as the first divine tool ever acquired by the Assassin Temple. Except for the former Scion of Samsara, no one had ever been able to bring out its complete strength before.
Even after his awakening as a god’s chosen, Long Haochen wouldn’t dare to say that he would be able to resist an attack from Cai’er’s Dagger of Samsara.

In terms of total strength, the current Cai’er was unable to compare with Long Haochen, but after the fusion of her three spiritual stoves this time, her burst power was still the greatest of the whole team.

To everyone’s astonishment, after saying all that, Cai’er actually didn’t go near the seated Long Haochen, just telling them everything from the side.

Wang Yuanyuan and Han Yu immediately had eccentric looks. From their point of view, Cai’er was certainly feeling jealous.

However, Long Haochen knew that that wasn’t the case. Cai’er just felt shy because of what happened inside the Illusory Paradise. But there wasn’t anything he could do about that. Just thinking of what he had groped with his very own hands…

“And you, Han Yu?” Long Haochen flung back his head with all his strength, getting rid of the beautiful thoughts that were surging in his head, before shifting to another subject once again.

Han Yu replied, “The fusion of my two spiritual stoves can also be considered to have gone smoothly. I gained an ability called Blessing of Light, enabling me to erect a protective barrier over a range of five meters. The defensive power from this barrier reaches three times my own spiritual energy, which means it has the same defensive power as Divine Obstruction. At the same time, while using Blessing of Light, everyone with attributes other than darkness will gain a tenfold recovery rate of spiritual energy, until reaching their peak condition.”

Fused spiritual stoves were just that great!

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • agila0212

    It is awesome that Cai’er is becoming more OP 😀

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • Trollicorn

    Long Haochen shouldn’t be having those thoughts… O_O

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Hes a young male its impossible to not have those thoughts, O.o. Especially after seeing and touching what he has….

      • Kaarme

        He’d be insulting Cai’er if he didn’t have those thoughts. Actually it could be said their romance would be over already if he didn’t feel that way.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          I gotta admit if you saw the person you felt the closest and loved most in terms of romantic relationships naked and didn’t feel anything…. You might be a robot.

          • Luke Confidential

            Or a Japanese protagonist.

        • Baem LN

          He can grope Yating anytime…Surely she won’t refuse. In fact, I think she will be more than willing to be groped and further by LHC…

          • Kaarme

            Of course she would be willing. But it’s impossible for an honourable boy like Haochen to be a two-timer. Fortunately.

          • Baem LN

            Yue Ye is waiting at the demon side too…Loli stove is waiting in Illusory Paradise…

  • Matt

    Cai’er’s new power is completely broken. She can use the spiritual stove that once killed a Demon God Emperor, once every day, with no side effects whatsoever. That is fucking cheating.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      To be fair it didn’t kill him, it mortally wounded him. That was also after he got to 9th step and more than likely awakened as a Gods Chosen and put his entire life into it. Still it is pretty OP and finally actually viable now thanks to the fact that she won’t be in a coma for a year after use, but not that op.

      • Matt

        Still, you know she’s eventually going to both reach the 9th step and awaken as a chosen one. And she won’t have to put her entire life into it, since no side effects. So basically, she’ll be able to kill a DGE every day.

        • Luke Confidential

          Except of course that the old DGE was far inferior to the current one in power. I’d guess half but I could be way off-base on that guess.

          • Matt

            And the old scion of Samsara had innate spirit power of 91. She has 100. Plus she’ll probably get way stronger than that guy ever was. Maybe killing 1 DGE a day is an exaggeration, but it’s still a broken skill.

          • Luke Confidential

            Bear in mind the current DGE is small potatoes. The big picture I and a few others in this community are envisioning is an alliance.

            Austin Griffon conquers [or LHC somehow arranges a peaceful merge] the Demon Race, and their combined forces set out on a quest to conquer the multiverse.

            Or perhaps more likely the only participants of said conquest are the gods among them. LHC, Cai-Er, Austin Griffon, the Demon God Emperor….

          • Matt

            That could work, except that Ah’Bao does NOT give me the impression that he’ll ever turn good. I like the DGE but what I see happening is either LHC kills Ah’Bao, the DGE turns on him and they fight to the death with LHC conquering the demons, or Ah’Bao turns traitor for some reason and the DGE allies with the humans to prevent a catastrophe (unlikely considering that Ah’Bao is supposed to be on really good terms with his dad). The other options are the demons being the final opponent after all or Haoyue becoming an enemy, but I doubt either of those will happen.

  • Dragon

    Ha Cai’er be so jealous

  • Jonathan Hurd

    Thanks for the Chapter Toto, :D. God I love how OP these fused Stoves are turning out to be. Thanks to Yating they now have a Priest. Han Yu received an amazing recovery stove for protection and Spiritual Energy Restoration. Lin Xin got a method to attack and since it takes all his energy anyways it reduces the need for him to personally cast offensive magic. Cai’er can finally use her Stove of Samsara without crippling herself. Considering they have two more people with fused Stoves… mwhahahahahahaha!

  • Anto Wibowo

    Thank you for the chapter! Serious major power up!

  • leopold1983

    Thank you Totobro !

  • dreamer

    To the previous discusion about LHC being sword destroyer, I think its official now:

    she’s actually also capable of attaching herself to my weapon in crucial times, to help my offense. However, this comes with the cost of sacrificing that weapon

    So, is this mean BRHL will constantly broken and self repaired inside yating? Fortunately, he still has a sword with auto repaired ability. Poor sword…
    Or, will BRHL become the only sword with capacity to fuse with Yating without broken to pieces? Because it stays inside her when not in use?

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Hmm, I think since Yating and BRHL are already one it would be a bit weird to me if the fusion destroys it. We’ll have to wait until BRHL recovers enough to be used to see for sure, but it makes sense to me. I would think that potentially there would be a period of time where it couldn’t be used afterwards added to Yating needing to recover her energy.

      I think it is possible that a sword can survive the fusion, but he is going to need a sword of much higher quality than Glorious Tier to do so. For instance remember that Bright Discipline was almost destroyed last time when LHC channeled the full power of basically an 8th step person into it for an Asura Strike against that 8th step Moon Demon. The question to me becomes if Legend will be able to survive well enough to be repaired afterwards or will he have to get a sword of the Epic grade before that is possible.

  • Jonathan Hurd

    So my guess for future progression is the reason this chapter set is called “Hao Yue’s fourth head” is because he is going to have the fourth head come out and then start working on the fifth. Before the Fifth comes out I’m betting another Undead Badass comes and the team manages to kill that one too. After that I think LHC might finally see this Litch King/Undead King (pretty sure its not Arthas….) that leads the undead and talk to him before escaping right when Hao Yue finishes his evolution completely.

    • dreamer

      I hope so… Since it is the 2nd chapter titled “4th head” but there is no phrase mention about that.

  • ZaX

    If humans didn’t have these fused spiritual stoves they would have lost pretty hard to the demons. Thanks for the chapter

    • Luke Confidential

      Slightly off. Fused Spiritual Stoves are ULTRA rare.

      I highly doubt even the Demon God Slayers have more than two among their ranks.

      LHC’s dad probably has one.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Its hard to guess if even LHC’s dad and the Demon God Slayers had the chance to get a fused stove. Remember that LHC and Co got a special chance thanks to going into the Illusory Paradise. Without that place to specifically start the fusion process all you can do is hope and pray to have the luck to fuse your stoves. That process was something even LHC’s dad had no clues about.

        Add to that the extreme pain and what they mentioned about the chances of your fusing stoves having zero comparability. The chances of failure and death are pretty steep even if you do get the chance to try. So I mean it is a case of great risks come with great rewards, but even getting the chance to take that risk is like a one in a million.

  • Blaxus

    Since the fourth is obviously gonna be water Im guessing the fifth will be earth and the sixth and perhaps final one will be darkness and will probably be violet colored.

    • SYWZ Fan

      Darkness was expelled and replaced with light I believe…

      • Jonathan Hurd

        His base Element was changed from Darkness to Light from what I remember. So the main body has Light element overall. Now that we have Little Blue though that shows his body can stand to have counter elements in it so I think the idea of having a Darkness head is not too far off.

    • Luke Confidential

      We [more specifically I] predicted Water and Earth long ago.

      As to the ‘final’ one, the final one is a long way off from the sixth.

      Since we’re presumably getting Water and Earth at the seventh rank, my money is on Thunder for the eighth rank, Spacial for the 9th rank, Death for the 10th rank and Destruction for the 11th rank.

      Alternatively, Death and Destruction might go hand in hand and we may get darkness or plant somewhere in there.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Personally to me I think he will have all his heads by 9th step (10th Rank). So I am guessing he will complete his evolution to 6th step (7th Rank) soon and get his 5th head. Then for 7th step (8th rank) he will get two more heads of general elements. After that 8th and 9th step (9th and 10th rank) will get single heads but those ones will be the specialized ones like Spacial and Death.

        For the heads he will get I definitely think Earth being the more common and standard one is probably next. After that I actually think he might get a Darkness and Thunder head since that would basically mean he has the full elemental spectrum. The head after that will be Spatial and the last one potentially Death in my book.

  • Wabbitmonster

    heya thanks for the translation.

    anyway small rant from me, more for the author than you. its getting really annoying how the chapter title references something late in the chapter. it was bad enough when it referenced something that didnt happen until part 2 of the chapter. but after 2 parts and no Haoyue appearence i’d rather this chapter have been called “fused spiritual stoves in action”. cause if that were the case i wouldn’t have goten myself hyped for HaoYue’s powerup

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I understand how you feel and this title definitely left a lot of expectation. Toto does try his best to keep the title hidden if he feels like it would spoil the fun for us. For instance back in the Exorcist Mountain Pass arch when the three Demon God’s were going to come out Toto made sure to black out the name till they actually appeared so we could enjoy the full effect of them. Part of the point of the Titles I would think is to wet our appetites for what is to come next. It allows us to try and guess what will happen next.

      I will agree I definitely want to see the new and improved Hao Yue in action, but I think expecting him to cast anything or fight immediately after evolving is maybe expecting a bit much. We will definitely get to see him and everyone else’s new found power ups in action in a few chapters. LHC and company need to rest up and buy some new weapons for their knights. After that i think the next thing we are going to get is every single member of the team beating Flame Sensei alone.

  • Zeth

    Thank you very much Totobro!
