Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 354: A Million Contribution Points (III)

Han Yu replied with a smile, “Devil Dragons are from the same race as the Demon God Emperor, and since long ago, Devil Dragons have always been attaching a lot of importance to their magical crystals. Even when some would be obtained by the Alliance, it would surely instigate a war for the sake of getting their magical crystal back. Thus, gaining magical crystals from Devil Dragons is only associated to missions of the Emperor grade. For every one of them, the reward reaches 300,000 contribution points! This time, we got ten crystals at once, and it’s completely due to our good luck and Captain’s improvisation. After discussing, the higher-ups decided to give us a million contribution points for the five crystals. And we have still five more, so that’s to say, we have virtually two and a half million contribution points in total.”

“Two and a half million, two and a half million; that’s two and a half million points!” Lin Xin laughed happily, and his acclamations resounded once again in the whole vila. Even Cai’er couldn’t help but grab Long Haochen’s hand in joy, in spite of the deep memories they still had from what happened in the Illusory Paradise.

Contribution points weren’t gold coins, but were actually a lot more useful. The fact they had received so many contribution points signified that their strength was bound to increase drastically.

Long Haochen said with a smile, “Sima, you don’t have to be watch the money while upgrading your weapon. From my estimate, after going through this upgrade, your Energetic Ball of Light will certainly surpass ordinary legendary equipment in power. Fortunately, we have the best material to use, so you can get Lin Xin to accompany you to look for that great-master in jewelry later, now that we can afford it. Yuanyuan, go to the Alliance’s Great Auction House to ask about that spatial crystal, and the time when the auction will take place. No matter the cost, we will buy it for you. If I am not mistaken, the things in the auction house of Holy City can be bought directly with contribution points for a price of ten to one. That’s to say, we should be able to get a spatial crystal for a cost in between hundred and two hundred thousand contribution points. If there are more spatial crystals, then buy more of them.”

Lin Xin remarked with a laugh, “Boss, how rich and overbearing from you! Then, how about the rest of the contribution points?”

Long Haochen replied after spending a short time pondering, “Let’s temporarily retain the remaining contribution points. If some good items appear in an auction, we can conveniently buy them this way. Now, your materials for pill take the top priority, so if you need anything, take the initiative to buy it by yourself, but don’t spare any cost on them. It’s after all impossible for us to reach the standard to become a Demon Hunt Squad of the king grade at the moment. After we get promoted to the commander grade, we’ll have a look at the third floor of the Demon Hunt Squads’ Transaction Center and use the contribution points already in our hands to get a piece of legendary equipment for everyone. This way, during our next mission, we’ll have a better chance of success.”

“Long Live Captain!” This shout reverberated three times. Even for Demon Hunt Squads, a team at the commander grade with all members equipped with a piece of legendary equipment was something hard to imagine.

In truth, Long Haochen clearly understood that this time, it was all because of the assistance from the Alliance that they managed to get so many contribution points. Although the ten Devil Dragon Crystals were obtained by them, if not for the fact that so many powerhouses from the Alliance were present, how could he possibly have accomplished this? Thus, handing five of these over was only natural to him.

Although they received 500,000 contribution points less from the Alliance than the usual countervalue for king grade Demon Hunt Squads, this was already an enormous help for them. Those were a million points! Even if this ended up not being enough to get everyone a piece of legendary equipment now, they would surely only be off by a small margin. This million contribution points also enabled them to stay in the villa for about a year and focus on training hard without any need to take on missions.

However, Long Haochen didn’t know that the Alliance handed them so many contribution points for the sake of avoiding them to take on missions to the greatest extent at the present stage. The existence of the Scion of Light and the Saint Daughter of Samsara was in fact a very sensitive subject, especially after the trip to the Southern Mountain’s City, the successive situations of fatal danger caused even Han Qian to fear for their lives. In case Long Haochen or Cai’er were to die before reaching maturity, the Alliance would suffer a fatal blow. Thus, giving them so many contribution points, they would naturally not rush for new missions. And having the contribution points would also increase their strength a step further. These were resources the Alliance was willing to invest for the sake of their cultivation. Other Demon Hunt Squads couldn’t even hope for such a treatment, but in this instance, the other five from the 21st general grade Demon Hunt Squad received advantages by being close to Long Haochen and Cai’er.

Everyone quickly became busy, and over the following month, their time was shared between going to the Tower of Eternity and cultivating their spiritual energy.

Sima Xian’s Energetic Ball of Light was already sent to be reforged, and Wang Yuanyuan went to get the information on the auction involving the spatial crystal, which was on the verge of starting.

Over this month, Long Haochen and Cai’er mainly adapted to their new spiritual stoves as well as their synchronization, while cultivating their spiritual energy. Long Haochen aside, the others trained their own spiritual energy until it reached 5,000 units through the fourth and the fifth trial. Thus, everyone of the 21st general grade Demon Hunt Squad reached 5,000 units of internal spiritual energy.

“Captain, the spatial crystal is going to auctioned tomorrow. Should I just follow Yuanyuan, or should everyone go together?” Lin Xin went to Long Haochen and Cai’er’s room to ask.

Long Haochen gave the matter some thought, before replying, “Let’s go together. If we encounter something someone needs, we will immediately bid to get it. It has been a long time since we last went to an auction. This will be a good time to relax after this exhausting month of training.”


The Alliance’s Great Auction House was undoubtedly one of the largest in the whole Alliance. If the Demon Hunt Squad Transaction Center could be said to be the place with biggest amount of treasures in the whole Alliance, the Alliance’s Great Auction House could be said to be the second richest place in treasures, with the bonus that everyone had the right to buy.

Sometimes, some items not present in the Demon Hunt Squad Transaction Center could be found here. But more importantly, in the Alliance’s Great Auction House there was no restriction in grade, meaning anyone had the right to buy treasures of any grade. This couldn’t be done in the Demon Hunt Squads’ Transaction Center, where a Demon Hunt Squad would need to reach the corresponding Demon Hunt Squad grade before being able to buy better items.

After all, in the Demon Hunt Squads’ Transaction Center, all the goods were sold at a very low price.

A simple example would be those excellent Devil Dragon Crystals Long Haochen’s group obtained. In the Demon Hunt Squad’s Transaction Center, completing the mission would be rewarded with 300,000 contribution points, and one could buy them from the Demon Hunt Squad’s Transaction Center for 350,000 contribution points.

However, once arriving at the Alliance’s Great Auction House, the prices could easily start at over five million gold coins for one item, and very possibly end up over ten millions gold coins. Thus, generally speaking, unless an item wasn’t present in the Demon Hunt Squads’ Transaction Center and could only be found in the auction house, Demon Hunters would rarely go there to buy items.

As a frequent visitor of the auction house, Lin Xin prepared their seats. When Long Haochen’s group arrived at the Alliance’s Great Auction House, the sun had already set, but a huge amount of people was present in the auction house.

Lin Xin led everyone in the auction house, while he explained to Long Haochen, “Today is the day of the monthly great auction. Good items are always showcased during this period. I went to see the auction’s brochure, and really saw quite a few things that could be of good use to us. Boss, I have a suggestion.”

“Tell me about it.” Long Haochen replied.

Lin Xin’s response was, “We still have four more Devil Dragon Crystals. If we want to maximize the profits, we shouldn’t use contribution points to buy things from here, since this would actually be rather unprofitable to us. How about taking advantage of the event of today to sell one of these crystals? We didn’t obtain them in the Transaction Center after all, and are thus not violating the rules for the Demon Hunt Squads. With the gold coins from selling the magical crystal, we will easily be able to finance our purchases for today.”

Long Haochen was startled deep inside. He knew that according to the rules given to the Demon Hunt Squads, any equipment or pill obtained in the Demon Hunt Squad’s Transaction Center could only be sold back to the Demon Hunt Mission Tower. Lin Xin’s suggestion was indeed a good one; their Devil Dragon Crystals after all came from the demons, and weren’t something they had purchased. If they really sold it for a high price, they would be able to buy sufficiently good things, and this could perhaps help to buy one piece of legendary equipment for every person in the team after advancing.

Stopping his advance, Long Haochen finally agreed to Lin Xin’s suggestion after asking for the others’ opinions.

Because this was the grand occasion of the month, the auction took place in the largest hall of the Alliance’s Great Auction House. To participate in the auction taking place this day, at least an imposing record of transactions with the Alliance’s Great Auction House was necessary.

However, even so, after Long Haochen’s group entered the auction house, they were greatly surprised. In the rather dark lounge were at least seven or eight hundred people, and this number kept increasing. A lot of people carried a mask prepared specifically for this auction, with the goal of hiding their faces. After all, during the process of the auction, offenses to the law were very likely to happen.

Lin Xin was leading their group, but didn’t have his own box in this place. Long Haochen’s group of six was seated in the third row, and wore their own masks out of cautiousness. Lin Xin took one Devil Dragon Crystal from Long Haochen to enter it as an object for bidding.

Generally speaking, the auction wouldn’t accept items right before the start, but this time, it was about the magical crystal of a Devil Dragon! For this reason, they would rather be the ones requesting to accept the item even if there was no time. And that was to say nothing about the very good relationship already existing between the Alliance’s Great Auction House and Lin Xin.

Cai’er lightly leaned on Long Haochen’s shoulder, slowly closing her eyes.

Long Haochen then asked in low voice, “Is there anything you want?”

    Oh dear what a treat! Thanks a million Totobro and sponsor Brahm L

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter! Auction time!

  • Jonathan Hurd

    Thank you for the chapter Toto and Sponsors, :D.

    I’m getting dejavu….. Isn’t an auction the place LHC managed to find a random item to help Hao Yue evolve…. We might see that again, wooh!

    • Luke Confidential

      Frankly I’m wondering if the reason Little Green showed up when he did is because of that specific item.

      It seems like the path of Austin Griffin’s evolution might vary depending on which elemental essences he happens to gather in sufficient quantities along the way.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Oh same. Little Light came because of LHC’s Light Essence blood. Little Green because of the Green Dragon Pill. If he does get something to help bridge his evolution that would be following the cycle and I think they might keep that up for the rest of his evolutions then.

        I still predict that the next head is going to be Earth and then after that there will be a Lightening and I believe a dedicated Darkness head.

        On the bright side if we keep up with the consuming an elemental Item to get a Head of that type. It is pretty easy to predict a Death head by eating an item in the Tower of Eternity. Also now that I think about it Death Head sounds like a metal rock band, lol. I will guess that this heads personality will be emo, :P.

        • Luke Confidential

          Dude, picture it.

          Accapella death metal by Final Form Austin Griffon at 100+Meters in body length [excluding necks and tail of course] using nine heads and physical impacts [either against the air, the earth or himself] to produce ALL THE SOUNDS.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            The ultimate combination of Dorkiness and Awesomeness, Lol.

        • Marko Bandur

          I think HaoYue would never get a dark elemental head, i think darkness is its primary and base element, and it is totally contrasted by light, thanks to the first blood contract, the one that LHC made to save him changed is primary elemental with is opposite (light), so now HaoYue is a magical beast primary of light element and not darkness anymore, otherwise, why he cant just be healed when they discovered him, if in is elements were a trace of light evolution?

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Not completely sure that Little Light started as Little Dark. The original head Hao Yue had was Little Flame. When LHC healed/baptized him with his blood he grew Little Light as his second head. I think there is a chance for there being a Little Dark for a few reasons…

            One Darkness is one of the primary elements. Two he has Little Blue and Little Flame so that at least shows his body can house opposing elements.

            Three would be about the theory of how he gets heads. The way I see it there are two ways Hao Yue gains heads that I can guess. The first is he already has set heads and he is unlocking them with each evolution. That is why the heads already know all these spells.

            The second theory I have is that he grows the heads based on the stimulus. So for instance he grew a Light head because he took in Light element for his evolution from Hao Chen’s blood. He grew Little Green because he took in Wind Energy from the pill. Admittedly this one doesn’t explain how Little Blue came to be so I find the first a little more probable.

            So lets assume for a second the first option is how it works and Hao Yue already has all 9 of his future heads set waiting to be grown. He started with a darkness body. He also has shown he can grow a Light head with Little Light. So that means he has a Darkness body and a Light head prepared. If that is so I don’t think it would be too farfetched for him to have the reverse. A Light body and a Darkness head. Hell it would make more sense for him to have that Darkness head in waiting than it does for the Light Head since his original element was Dark.

            If we assume it is the second one it becomes even a bit easier. Hao Yue has already shown that even his weakest form could endure having the opposite Element mixed into him. So taking in a darkness object and developing a Darkness Head doesn’t seem like it would be that difficult with his now evolved body.

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • Psyside

    Long Haochen then asked in low voice, “Is there anything you want?”
    Caier: I WANT YOU!!!! xD

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Your getting it wrong he has to come back from a long day of work and have her come to meet him at the door…

      Cai’er: “What do you want first…. Food, a bath, or…. me…?

      Then all of a sudden Hao Yue pops out

      Hao Yue: “Or us!”

      • Psyside

        let her start easy first. Hao yue will split her in half….

        • Jonathan Hurd

          It would be pretty hilarious if after that part Yating suddenly pops out of his chest and is like….

          Yating “Master already has me!” Lol

          • Psyside

            And at that moment yating died.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            It was a good life….. Short but sweet. The best part was she got to be in the man she loved…. a lot.

          • Robin

            It seems waiting doesn’t become you. Your jokes get wilder and wilder. 😛

          • Evilage

            No i’m pretty sure he was always like this

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Probably. My brain works weirdly and its amusing to share, lol.

          • Robin

            And most of the time amusing to read. Sometimes I just enjoy browsing the comments to get a good laugh. ^_^

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Happy to hear that means my boredom relief is working for me and others :P.

          • Evilage

            That works both ways.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            What can I say I have to release the beast within!

          • Psyside

            And then Caier checks the closet only to find Demon waifu xD

          • Evilage

            Cai’er tortured demon waifu first and writes her name on LHC

      • AsurAstaroth720

        Long Haochen : “Everything in the same Time”

  • MrPecker

    Long Haochen: Is there anything you want?
    Caier: My preview for the next chapter

    well anyway thanks for the chapter!

  • Evilage

    “Two million and a half, two million and half; that’s two million and a half points!”

    About this, shouldn’t it be two and a half million points? Saying two million and a half points feels like they have two million points and half a point(what i’m trying to say is err… 2,000,000.5 points)

    • Oh thanks a lot for your remark I just saw.

      Two and a half million is more fitting indeed.

      • Alex Talbot

        I actually lol’d quite hard xD

  • Samir Suhail

    Now I ain’t saying she a gold digger but she aint messing with no broke n****!

  • TunafishLover

    Is it ten contribution points to one gold or ten gold to one contribution points?
