Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 360

Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 360: Aria of the Goddess of Light (III)

Suddenly, with an intense explosion of light, the roof of the auction hall was violently blown away to everyone’s surprise, and a brilliant golden pillar of light appeared on stage. This pillar of light looked very soft, making the gaudy light released by Long Haochen look coarse. Some illusory-looking little angels appeared, spinning around the pillar of light.

However, seeing this soft light, everyone had a different feeling from the assault of its power.

Goddess of light? Did he just say goddess of light? Is that divine power?


With a melodious fracturing sound, a few cracks appeared on the sword hilt in front of Long Haochen. They rapidly spread until reaching the circular gem on top of the sword’s tip.

All the black color on it disappeared in a flash, before the pearl on top of its sharp end gained immediately a blossoming glow. It avidly absorbed all the light essence in the air.

It finally awakened. After being covered in dust for hundreds of years, it finally awakened from its sleep. The pillar of light that just appeared gradually disappeared, but the light emitted from the sword became more and more intense.

The originally dark sword already turned transparent golden, and the previous dark patterns had the look of clouds, giving this sword a look of an immense dragon making its way through the clouds.

The sharp pearl on the tip trembled vividly, and then the sword was held high above Long Haochen’s head. Like before, it wasn’t pointed and neither did it have a sharp end, but around this divine sword, a radiant light started to scatter. In the midst of it, this blunt sword seemed unstoppable.

The bright light slowly vanished, speaking at least of the one released by Long Haochen.

As if feeling too reluctant to part with it, Long Haochen gazed full of fondness at the godly sword that reappeared in its original splendor. He clearly sensed that no matter how intense the light elemental spiritual energy he emitted was, this heavy sword would effortlessly support it. In particular, that spiritual bead on its tip engulfed all brilliance, and had unexpectedly also managed to absorb a lot of the divine power from the goddess of light, which had been released right before.

This was a legendary sword! Even having lost its sword soul, this godly sword was still a godly sword at the peak of the Legendary Tier. From this, one may well imagine how powerful it was in all its past glamour.

“Miss Weiyang, can you now tell me its name?”

Ye Weiyang foolishly looked at the brilliance released by the godly sword. Hearing Long Haochen’s voice, she was totally distracted, to the extent that it was only with Feng Ling’er’s call that she awakened.

“Of course I can. Its name is: Aria of the Goddess of Light. My ancestor was the Chief from the Warrior Temple two hundred years ago, the holy divine sword wielder Ye Wushang.”

When she spoke the words ‘Aria of the Goddess of Light’, Ye Weiyang knew that her greatest secret couldn’t stay concealed any longer, because this sword was just too prestigious.

The Aria of the Goddess of Light was praised as a divine weapon amongst divine weapons. Two hundred years ago, two Divine Knights were approved by the Divine Thrones of the Knight Temple, but amongst the Six Great Temples, of that generation, the strongest powerhouse was neither of them. That was because an even stronger person existed in the Warrior Temple. This person was known as the holy divine sword wielder Ye Wushang.

Ye Wushang possessed a passion for swords since he was young. Starting when he was three years old, he needed a sword to fall asleep. At his six years old, he started to study swordsmanship, and by the time he turned nine, he had undergone his awakening of spiritual energy and actually directly gained the strength of a Warmaster of the third step from it. At his eleven years old, he was already a Great Warmaster, and at sixteen, he broke through to the sixth step, becoming a War Ancestor. This broke all the records of the Warrior Temple existing until that day.

Ye Wushang had actually broken through the peak before even being thirty, when aged of twenty-nine years old, reaching the ninth step and becoming the youngest Divine Warrior in the history of the Warrior Temple.

One day when Ye Wushang was forty seven, the Demon God Emperor personally led his army to attack the Southeast Stronghold of the Warrior Temple. Keeping watch there, the Holy Divine Sword Wielder Ye Wushang personally intervened, fighting the demon army for a day and a night, and killing seven of the great Demon Gods back there in succession.

Even the proud Demon God Emperor was moved, calling Ye Wushang the greatest genius of the past thousand years in the Temple Alliance.

Finally, the Demon God Emperor took the initiative to retreat, giving Ye Wushang three days of rest. Three days later, in the Southeast Stronghold, the wielder of the Holy Divine Sword, Ye Wushang fought against the Demon God Emperor. This battle lasted for a day and a night, finally resulting in the death of Ye Wushang at the hands of the Demon God Emperor.

However, his last attack also wounded the Demon God Emperor.

This was a world shaking attack. Ultimately, although the victorious Demon God Emperor killed his opponent, he bowed his head before Ye Wushang at the end of the battle, paying his respects and leading the demon army to withdraw. Ever since that day, the Demon God Emperor didn’t appear on any battlefield in the Temple Alliance and this lasted for a hundred years.

His divine sword became an epic legend.

In the last battle, Ye Wushang originally didn’t need to challenge the Demon God Emperor, because the reinforcements from the Temple Alliance were there, consisting of the Six Great Temples’ greatest powerhouses. Even the full force attacks of the demons on the town wouldn’t have necessarily been able to vanquish the Southern Stronghold.

However Ye Wushang was determined to fight, going alone to challenge the Demon God Emperor. His declaration was: “If the humans want to defeat the demons, they will have to defeat their own selves first. It is to regain the human dignity that I am willing to fight against the Demon God Emperor.”

The glory Ye Wushang brought at that time to the Warrior Temple was comparable with the glory which the first Scion of Samsara bestowed on the Assassin Temple. Even now, in the great center hall of the Warrior Temple stood a ten meter high sculpture of the holy divine sword-wielder. At the front of the sculpture the words ‘A hero of a thousand years’ were engraved.

And the Aria of the Goddess of Light was something Ye Wushang created through his sweat and blood.

Ye Wushang engraved this legend by himself.

When he was three years old, he was holding onto his swords even in his sleep, and kept using those same ones until reaching the sixth step at sixteen years of age. At that time did he possess a total of five swords, which he managed to fuse into one through unceasing hammering and merging of their essences with each other. Through nourishing them with the demons’ blood, giving them the benediction of the essence of the earth, and melting dozens of different metals into one sword, they were sharpened. After thirty years, it finally became this sword.

It was said that on the day of its completion, the goddess of light descended. Finally, its name would have been decided to be Aria of the Goddess of Light.

It was also by the means of this sword that the divine holy sword wielder Ye Wushang killed seven demon gods, and greatly injured the Demon God Emperor of that time.

However, the pity was that only one year after the sword’s completion, Ye Wushang perished in battle. On that day, the entire Southeast Fort was said to have been in tears, and the chief of the Temple Alliance of those years wept with grief, personally giving him the title of ‘Hero of a Thousand Years’.

Of course, when hearing about the Aria of the Goddess of Light, Long Haochen’s surprise was as one may well imagine. He never expected that a divine sword surrounded by so many legends would be in his hands. Even if only its body remained, it still held a significant meaning.

Leaning forward, Long Haochen gently stroked the sword that was the result of incomparable hard work and effort. Feeling a sentiment of rage, he envisioned himself on that battlefield, accompanying the divine holy sword wielder Ye Wushang.

Under his touch, the Aria of the Goddess of Light actually produced some slight buzzing sound, as if it was excited about its rebirth.

Holding the sword in both of his hands, Long Haochen offered the sword to Ye Weiyang, “Miss Weiyang, please accept this divine sword.”

Ye Weiyang didn’t take it, but gave Long Haochen an ardent look, “If you don’t have enough money, you can pay in installments. I keep my word, you were the one to let the divine sword reappear in it’s splendor, so you are its new master.”

Long Haochen shook his head in silence, “No. Using money to gain this divine sword is blasphemy. My only wish was for it to reawaken to the light. This divine sword is of extreme importance, and cannot even be described as precious. It should be yours, or be given to the Warrior Temple.”

Ye Weiyang let out a sigh, “Who else do you believe is able to take this sword? In the instant you undid the seal, you already became its new master. This divine sword has a soul, and even if the sword’s soul is not present, this is not a sword I can use. Have a look.”

Saying this, she lifted her slim white hand, lightly touching the sword in front of her. Right the instant her finger touched it, an intense buzzing sound suddenly emerged, and Ye Weiyang’s hand was not only rejected, but actually pushed away by the light energy.

Long Haochen looked dull, “So this divine sword still has a soul! It actually really has a soul!” Gripping the handle, Long Haochen couldn’t help but tighten his grip. How could he not have taken a liking to this divine sword? Moreover, what shocked him the most was the essence of divine light present in this sword.

Ye Weiyang gave a reluctant look to the Aria of the Goddess of light, asking softly, “Can you tell me your name?”

Long Haochen gave a silent nod, “My name is Long Haochen, and I am the captain of the 21st general grade Demon Hunt Squad.” His voice was being constrained by spiritual energy, and only Ye Weiyang could hear it.

Ye Weiyang pointed to the back of the stage, “Hurry up and leave. When I get the chance in the future, I will definitely look for you.”

Exactly, now Long Haochen had no other choice but to leave. With the rebirth of the Aria of the Goddess of Light, all the participants of the auction were going to become frantic. After a short time of lifeless staring, the whole auction fell into chaos.

The door to the VIP lounge was already opened and some people left, but everyone else gave fervent looks to the divine sword in Long Haochen’s hands, and some even directly gave astronomic propositions.

When Long Haochen was planning on recovering the Aria of the Goddess of Light, right before leaving this place, a thought came to him, and with a golden glint, the divine sword disappeared from his right hand. Afterwards, with a flash, Long Haochen left through the backdoor.

The others didn’t ignore him, especially those coming from the VIP lounge. Among them, a powerhouse stepped forward, passing the auction counter in an imposing manner, while producing angry protest in the whole auction hall.

However, without letting him say anything, a terrible power suddenly erupted from all directions. The powerhouse on the stage was already at the eighth step of cultivation, but in front of this pressure, his expression changed greatly. Immediately, he jumped back from the counter.

A downcast voice was spread to everyone present, “Who dares to challenge the prestige of the Alliance? This is a place for fair auctions, not a place where you could take items forcibly. The auctions for today are already over, so you can leave. If someone else dares to rush into action, he will be killed without any hesitation.”

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • Evilage

    I feel like its the warrior temples time to find out about cai’er and LHC’s IT. I mean the top of the priest temple was told so why not the warrior temple? Especially when they gave him their most valued weapon.

    • Psyside

      Only 2 people in priest temple know. And she isnt a leader of the warior temple by the look of it. I dont think she will find out. But who knows we may be surprised. Cos this is MASIVE news. He did tell his name out loud on stage. So every one knows.

      • Evilage

        No in the preview she called a senior didnt she? So i kinda have a gut feeling the highest peeps of the warrior temple will find out
        Yes only 2 peeps of the priest temple found up but they are the highest ranked there are they not?

        • dreamer

          I was about to comment the same thing.

          Actually I am most curious about when LHC will realise that his innate talent is 100. And will hanyu and sima get powered up?
          Sima aside, Hanyu create contract when he was at 97 and the powerup happened to be half of the difference with the original. It has went up by 3 point now, so his must be at least up by 1 poin right?

          EDIT: I forgot his teacher

          • Evilage

            No i believe it only affects when innate sharing thing occurs. So after they get the power up their innate telent will not go up unless something similar to LHC’s case happens

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Well from what we saw when LHC was awakening both Han Yu and Sima seemed to be gaining benefits from it. So I think what they gained might of been more than just a bump in a point of Innate Spiritual Energy, but almost a tiny awakening themselves bringing them closer to the Light element and increasing their power. Not sure how that affected LHC’s teacher since they were in another dimension.

      • SYWZ Fan

        Read over…he only told Ye

        • Evilage

          His voice was being constrained by spiritual energy, and only Ye Weiyang could hear it

          • Psyside

            ye to excited missed it xD

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I think you might be right on this one. I kind of want a similar situation like with Sima Xian’s.

      Warrior temple finds out LHC got the sword and is like “Hey want to be a warrior! We’ll give you spiritual stoves!” then Han Qian is like “You know his dad is Long Xingyu right?” so the warrior temple is like “….I hear you have a Warrior on your Demon Hunt Squad without a master think she needs help?” ,lol.

      To be fair Wang Yuanyuna is the only person without someone to help teach her high end skills. LHC has his dad, Cai’er her grandpa, Han Yu his grandpa, Yinger her grandparents, Lin Xin his grandpa, and Sima the Priest temple head.

      • Luke Confidential

        It’s weird that she DOESN’T have a mentor. She comes from a lineage of Warrior Temple Heads IIRC.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          I was honestly wondering about that too. I think it was Han Qian who said she was going to be a star of the Warrior Temple during the Demon Hunt Selection since she reached 5th step so young. I find it strange no one wanted to mentor her.

  • Psyside

    Holly shit. Who do you think was the voice that made the 8th step squirm?
    I soo want it to be LHC dad PLS GOD

    • SYWZ Fan

      I kinda think it would be the associate head of the warrior temple

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I doubt LHC’s dad is randomly showing up at an AH. I think SYWZ Fan is probably the closest. Considering that Ye Weiyang is the head auctioneer and her being a descendant of the hero of the Warrior’s temple I definitely think that it is a High Class warrior. Could be her father. Her Grandpa did die, but I think her father might be a high class Warrior potentially.

        • SYWZ Fan

          Considering she said senior I doubt it’s her dad.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            True. Though he could be a stickler for rules and regulations. I imagine the person she is going to talk to now is the owner of the AH so maybe not her father.

    • felix

      Assassin Grandpa?

  • SYWZ Fan

    The great long haosword destroyer has obtained another weapon…now the question is…will this sword last or be destroyed against the next powerhouse he faces? If the sword was destroyed would he go from “great guest of the warrior temple” to “infamous heretic Long the sword destroyer”?

    • Psyside

      I dont think this one will die. It withstood the DGE FFS NOTHING CAN BREAK IT

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I agree. Also considering it was able to absorb and keep some of the power of the Goddess of Light…. Just imagine how freaking high this things limits must be…

        • SYWZ Fan

          Y’all really underestimate the power of the guy who shattered BRHL

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair when he broke BRHL he condensed every bit of Light Essence in a place like the Illusory Paradise into his blade. I also think he was unconsciously borrowing power from the Goddess of Light for that strike. So a lot of factors led to the break. I don’t think it will break as easily as Bright Discipline did from having Yating pour herself into it.

          • Luke Confidential

            Or at least borrowing power from Austin Griffon Dragon of the Apocalypse by way of Little Light and their Blood Pact [remember the way the pact seal glowed during the attack.]

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I think that might be showing the balance of Power between Austin Griffin and the Scion of Light has shifted to LHC being stronger. I wonder if the mark will go back to purple or maybe half and half if Hao Yue gets another big power spike.

            I do have to say I enjoy how each of their evolution’s has a boosting effect on their counterpart, hehe.

            Another thing I kind of want is for LHC to get a third pair of wings when he next fuses with Hao Yue. The author has shown he likes six winged Seraphs a lot looking at some of his other works so I find this likely.

          • Kaarme

            The chapter says Haochen himself sensed he’s not going to be able to break this sword, at least not by using the ordinary means he broke the previous ones. Of course it’s possible in the future destiny will teach him new ways of destroying precious items.

  • Evan Maulana

    thank you toto

  • Evilage

    I have a question should toto be pronounced as to-to or toh-toh?

    • Psyside

      i do it to-to

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I always thought of it as Toh-toh never thought about the to-to that’s an interesting question.

        • Evilage

          Same i thought it was toh-toh too but recently i had a feeling i might be wrong so i asked.

        • Psyside

          At start when i wasnt playing attention i thought its totoboro xD

    • Devil In Glasses

      I pronounce it as toh-toh-bro

  • Majk

    Now it is time for the great release week (and a day or maybe more).
    Just don’t overwork yourself guys.

  • This chapter was badass. Thanks a lot for the translation

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • Jonathan Hurd

    Okay so now that we know officially that the sword is named Aria of the Goddess of Light I am officially nicknaming it Eternal Requiem for myself. Partly because it just makes me happy and partly because it sounds cool :P.

    Also anyone else want someone to have knocked some sense into that idiot temple Knight who was trying to steal the sword from LHC. Everyone had a chance to try and get the sword. LHC fulfilled the conditions back off.

    • Robin

      Although cool, I think Aria might fit it better. Even if the sword right now may sing a requiem for its old master, it will soon sing the aria of Long Haochen’s glory.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Now the real question we must ask ourselves is what is the song the sword is singing. My personal bet looking at LHC’S looks is flight of the Valkyries

  • Zeth

    Thank you Totobro!

  • dreamer

    So, lets compare what LHC has now to what his comrades have.
    1 unique spiritual stove + 1 mystic grade weapon like his waifu
    (I am not comparing power here)
    1 beast companion who eat a lot like ying’er’s pig
    (again, not comparing power. And yes HY eats more lol)
    1 legendary weapon like Yuanyuan shield

    Madness ability like Sima (he used it once at the tournament)
    Vast knowledge about spiritual stove like Linxin vast knowledge about medicine

    I still don’t know what so unique about Hanyu. Anyone has an idea?

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I think the madness thing might have been a one time thing for LHC made from the stimulus of that situation. I think Sima might have the edge because I believe his Madness actually acts as doping and LHC’s was kind of just a cool headed beserker. LHC was pulling out the best of his capabilities and body, but I think that Sima’s actually amplfies him.

      On Unique Spiritual Stoves everyone of the 21st GG other than Wang Yuanyuan qualifies for that one, :P.

      For what makes Han Yu Unique… Heals? Not like anyone else in his team other than Yating knows those spells.

      • dreamer

        Yup, you’re right about the unique stove. Thats why I put the mystic weapon to differentiate 😀

        Yeah… You’re right! Thank you.
        So currently at their team the one capable of healing are Yating, Hanyu, and LHC (not as good but still can because he is half guardian knight)
        So LHC can heal like Hanyu

        Wow… As the MC he has so many OP perks. With this + few more years he will be able to go 1 on 1 with DGE. And probably win (because he is the MC) right? Not to mention DGE was afraid of Haoyue final form. If Haoyue finally evolve to his final form that make DGE himself afraid, that mean LHC only need to watch as Haoyue kill the DGE for him. That will make his effort to level up kind of useless in the end.
        Maybe he will end up become a god like the master of Ye Xiaolei because he is bored killing DGE over and over again 😛

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Lol, well a thing I would say is that the DGE was definitely afraid of facing off against Hao Yue, but we don’t know what kind of cost Hao Yue would have to pay to fight him. It might be one of those taking each other down together end results. There is also 71 other Demon God’s to join in for that fight so for that final battle it might turn into a full scale war, which would be awesome to watch, lol. Even if LHC isn’t personally fighting the DGE at that point I don’t think he will lack for foes.

          The other thing to keep in mind is that the DGE is also apparently worried about some other dimension jumpers coming and attacking them. That was why he hasn’t led an all out fight against the humans the cost would be to high and leave them vulnerable to vultures. So there is probably other amazingly strong opponents out there waiting for us even after the DGE.

  • ZaX

    Scion of light has so many perks. Thanks for the chapter

  • Jonathan Hurd

    Btw anyone else find it amusing that the guy with Long in his name keeps getting weapons with Dragon motiffs and attacks. BRHL got Dual Dragons of Light and Water. Now he has a sword with drawings of dragons breaking through the clouds….

    • leopold1983

      I think long is how you say dragon in chinese. So you mean he was fated to have dragon sword? I guess that’s what the author intended indeed 🙂

  • Marko Bandur

    Thanks for this chapters toto

    Btw ive just readed again the southern mountain city battle, and ive noticed a connection here
    You remember that Han Quian, Suifeng, and Ling Xiao spoke of a girl after the meeting, the name was precisely Ye Weiyang

    Maybe well find the connection of this guys and the reason why one of them still havent reached the ninth step 😀
