Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 371


Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 371: Second Floor of the Tower of Eternity (I)

At the time the fog of ice casted by the blue skeleton came in contact with Long Haochen’s body, he simply felt a breeze covering his whole body, which suppressed his sunlight fire. Additionally, his movements clearly became slower, and an ice cold feeling filled his mind, as if making his soul sluggish from the cold.

However, this feeling only lasted for an instant until Lin Xin’s Heart of Flames managed to block it. When the fog of ice touched the flames, with a puffing sound, the fire from the Heart of Flames and the fog of ice started to cancel each other out.

Without a doubt, that skeleton wasn’t using ordinary ice, but Lin Xin’s Heart of Flames didn’t use ordinary fire either. Both sides counteracted each other and Lin Xin’s fire actually held an advantage. But of course, this was because the effects of Long Haochen’s sunlight fire had already weakened the attack from the skeleton to some extent.

The flame in the eyes of the blue skeleton pulsed slightly, and the staff in his hand moved in a mysterious trajectory. As he acted that way, he chanted some unknown incantation, and a sparkling and translucent ice crystal emerged from his staff, floating above him. This ice crystal didn’t really appear fast, but Long Haochen felt some change on the scenery before his eyes, before all the surroundings turned ice blue.

From the others point of view, Long Haochen’s body abruptly came to a stop before immediately being immersed by a large ice crystal

What strong magic!

At that time, the other members of the 64th commander grade Demon Hunt Squad naturally didn’t keep waiting, and launched their attacks against that blue skeleton.

The fire from Lin Xin Heart of Flames clashed against that immense ice crystal, immediately attempting to melt it, while Cai’er, Wang Yuanyuan, and Sima Xian, as well as Han Yu simultaneously dashed towards the blue skeleton. Their movements were filled with tacit understanding. The four of them had dashed forward and separated to encircle the skeleton, and although they were not able to attack from all four directions, their coordinated attack made that blue skeleton totally unable to resist the encirclement.

Chen Ying’er was seated on the ground, both her hands on her crystal ball as she chanted a slow incantation. Two bizarre radiances of gold and a dark color quietly emerged, revolving around her like fireballs. The fluctuation of spiritual energy surrounding Chen Ying’er’s body produced a white thread from the space between her eyebrows, radiating a white light.

Facing this combined assault, that blue skeleton actually didn’t retreat, and suddenly pointed his staff to the ground.

Bang.

With a violent explosion, the immense crystal that had frozen Long Haochen split, producing a brutal explosive force hurling innumerable ice shards into all directions. These fragments of ice were not only directed at them all, but also stopped everyone in their track. Even given their current cultivation, they were unable to resist.

Cai’er’s dark golden dagger could be seen, changing into many sparks of light in the air. At every thrust, a ball of ice would be destroyed, yet her look was concentrated on Long Haochen.

It was not only her: Wang Yuanyuan, Sima Xian and Han Yu also did the same. Seeing the strong explosive power of this ice, was Long Haochen alright…?

Nothing seemed wrong with Long Haochen. At least, he didn’t seem harmed on the surface. It was just that his golden red flames and the fire from Lin Xin’s Heart of Flames had disappeared completely.

His expression looked pale, and his body was distinctly covered with ice.

An intense cold air covered the surroundings densely. It could be clearly seen that everyone felt their whole bodies numbing. In fact, their external spiritual energy had increased by a large degree after being soaked in the liquid using the dragon crystals as main ingredient. Even so, their external spiritual energy that now exceeded 3,000 units didn’t stop their hands from going stiff.  

Seventh step! Without a doubt, this was the level of cultivation this blue skeleton reached. And furthermore, its control over magic was the same as the battle skills of the red skeleton from the ancient times, something one could only describe as perfect.

A resonant phoenix cry rang right at that instant, and the red-hot fire from the Heart of Flames lashed out instantly, rapidly counteracting the coldness in the air. Meanwhile, the blue fire phoenix soared in the sky, going past everyone to throw itself at that blue skeleton.

Lin Xin was already unable to give any more consideration about the backlash. Because of how strong this blue skeleton was, all his mates were affected by him. If he was allowed free reign, it would be very hard for them to pass this trial.

The members of the 64th Demon Hunt Squad coordinated perfectly. In Han Yu’s hands, the golden red legendary sword was lifted, and with a shout, an intense golden red shine covered his whole body. This shine immediately freed his body from the stiffness affecting it. Being covered by a golden red shade, he went straight for that blue skeleton.

In a rush, Sima Xian placed himself in front of Long Haochen, using his Energetic Ball of Light, which was finally finished being re-modelled in the previous month, to get in the opponent’s way.

Compared to before, there was no apparent change in the size of the Energetic Ball of Light, but it’s appearance had changed into a darker golden color, faintly emitting a kind of terrible aura. Originally at the Glorious Tier, the Energetic Ball of Light now easily reached the Legendary Tier, and if not for the increase of external spiritual energy Sima Xian had gained from the dragon crystal, he would currently be unable to use this terrible weapon.

With a glint of silver light, Wang Yuanyuan disappeared without a sound, and Cai’er also vanished instantly.

Four people attacking and one staying behind to defend Long Haochen; this was true tacit understanding.  

In front of the blue fire phoenix, the blue skeleton finally lost his tranquility. His chant appeared more rushed, and his staff pointed to the ground. With three ear-piercing whoosh sounds, three immense ice crystals, reaching a diameter of one meter, suddenly dug their way from the ground, intertwining with each other towards the blue fire phoenix. In the meanwhile, an ice blue radiance was spread out from the blue skeleton, forming a blue transparent barrier.

Bang.

The three thick ice crystals simultaneously smashed to pieces, and the coldness that filled the air disappeared in that instant. Lin Xin’s blue fire phoenix showed a truly terrible attack power, and furthermore, the intensity of the Heart of Flames was stronger than the ice of the blue skeleton. However, the gap between the two was mostly based on their spiritual energy level. The blue fire phoenix couldn’t keep pushing forward, and turned back with a muffled phoenix cry, returning to Lin Xin’s side.

With a glint of silver light, the first to attack was Wang Yuanyuan. Her Gigantic Divine Soul Shield was wielded like an axe. Relying on the power of the Spiritual Stove of Spatial Gate, Wang Yuanyuan’s attack was instantaneous, clashing violently against the barrier protecting that blue skeleton.

The spatial crystal obtained from the auction house was refined into two pieces for Wang Yuanyuan to use. Nonetheless, in her current state, she could only add a supplementary one, otherwise the power would exceed her limits. But even so, the Gigantic Divine Soul Shield directly ascended to the Legendary Tier just from the addition of one spatial crystal.

As this shield blow was delivered, an immense and terrifying silver figure arose behind Wang Yuanyuan’s back. With a violent bang, the blue barrier was smashed to pieces from the impact.

Nonetheless, that blue skeleton kept showing exceptional reactions. In such an unfavorable situation, it suddenly lowered its stance, in the same fashion as a skater, using the force from the barrier to avoid Wang Yuanyuan’s axe-attack. In the meanwhile, a pure white ice ring suddenly extended, forcefully pushing Wang Yuanyuan back.

Han Yu arrived at this time. Fully clad in gold red, he appeared to have gotten in an extraordinary state. Aiming a violent cut with the pure golden heavy sword in his hand, he engulfed the blue skeleton like a reddish golden hurricane.

Zhii A sharp whistling sound came out from the blue skeleton’s mouth, and an ice wall suddenly appeared in front of Han Yu to stop him. However, that ice wall was reduced to fragments in the next instant by Han Yu’s immense golden red sword.

A white ring appeared under Han Yu’s feet, provoking an instant explosion and sweeping him with an intense frozen airstream. However, when covered in this pure golden color, Han Yu seemed unequalled, actually disregarding all the effects from the frozen airstream on his body and still aiming his sword at that blue skeleton.

The blue skeleton finally seemed close to his limits, the soulfire in his eye was fluctuating violently. Waving the magic staff in his hand, it erected a defensive armor around itself.

The fact it had great ability in magic didn’t necessarily mean that this blue skeleton would be as strong as the red skeleton in close range. Although it had the defense from the ice armor, it still ended up sent flying while its magic staff was cut in half. More terrifyingly, the scarlet radiance shining on Han Yu’s heavy sword actually gained in viscosity, as the blue skeleton suddenly stopped in its flight backwards.

Following next was Han Yu’s performance time. As the blood red colored heavy sword swirled in the air, at every attack, that blue skeleton would get covered with a layer of imposing red, and it took only three blows to smash his ice armor with a loud bang.

Han Yu’s last strike directly aimed at the shoulder of the blue skeleton, slashing it in half.

In a state of invisibility, Cai’er didn’t intervene. Since Han Yu managed to deal the fatal blow against the blue skeleton, she naturally had no need to act.

Long Haochen gradually returned to his senses. After sustaining the icy effects, only his face still looked pale. The damage from the attack of the blue skeleton was truly terrible. It was fortunate that he had the Holy Fire brought to him by Yating, along with the addition from the sunlight fire and the Heart of Flames as well as the Sacred Holy Protection from his Glorious Holy Armor, annihilating the greater part of the damage from the explosion. However, even then, it took Long Haochen nearly twenty seconds to expel the chilliness from his whole body.

The whole battle didn’t last a long time, but this victory against the blue skeleton wasn’t an easy win at all. In fact, Long Haochen’s individual strength was enough for him to match a powerhouse of the seventh step in a duel. And it took their whole strength to take out this blue skeleton. If not for the enormous effects Lin Xin’s blue phoenix had in weakening this blue skeleton, defeating this opponent would have been very hard to them.

    Thank you!

  • sergioGM

    Thank you 🙂

    Thank you Totobro and sponsor Rasmus I!

  • Psyside

    So wait She got 2 crystals more for the Shield…God daym…

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I know right? To be fair it makes sense for the author to increase how many stones she gets from that piece of ore since she needs 9 and only had three to start. It would be kind of weird to say its a rare ore and have her find 6 pieces of it, lol.

      • Majk

        Wouldn’t that make the ore more rare ?? Since the crystals are made out of it and they are already rare.

        • Robin

          But the ore needs to be pure enough to be made into crystals. And then we learned that the longer the crystals have time to absorb power, the stronger they are. Not every piece of ore will therefore fulfill the necessary requirements to be made into crystals suitable for her shield. It surely won’t be that easy to find four more crystals to power it up.

          • Luke Confidential

            True, but with a crystal to spare she ought to good at least half-way through the seventh step, if not good until breaking through to the 8th.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Yeah I can’t imagine them bringing the crystals up again anytime soon. Even when they go for their next item upgrades I think it will be for legendary armor. Considering everyone has a legendary weapon already. This is especially so since most of them seem to have their permanent weapons.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Basically if it was One Ore = One Stone. Then for her to get a full 9 working she would need to find 6 different pieces of the ore. Since she can get multiple from one piece she will probably only need to find two more pieces of ore. That is rare, but at least less conspicuous than her finding 5 more ores after this one.

  • Drama

    Thanks ..

  • Jonathan Hurd

    I love that Ice Sensei beat down LHC and kept the entire team at bay for so long all by himself as a mage. Think of what would happen if Flame Sensei joined Ice Sensei…. God when LHC unlocks all of these guys and they fight together that is going to be freaking scary.

    • Luke Confidential

      It gets better.

      Wait until Lin Xin overcomes his refusal to use offensive spells and replicates Ice Sensei’s combat style [with the necessary adaptations for Fire of course.]

      He very well may be one of only a handful of alliance mages alive with the magical manipulation skill to surpass ice sensei in battle technique.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I am looking forward to when they unlock 4 more super skeles of different proffesions. After that I’m betting they each get tutored by one skeles. That will be amazing, hehe.

  • Zeth

    Thank you very much Totobro and Rasmus!

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • Dragon

    Wow they are so op also if that shield worrier is able to make her shield legendary with only 1 of the two crystals it stands to reason that when she is able to use both the shield will be a rank above legendary so op.

    • Majk

      It could not ge straight above the legendary rank but insted go from a lowertier legendary to an upper one. After all there are still 3 ranks above legendary and she needs 9 crystals to get it into full power mode.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Yeah jumping directly out of Legendary seems a little unlikely, but the power up will be pretty fun to see, :D.

        • leopold1983

          But her shield really is strong and I hope it is indestructible. Because if something ever happen to her shield she loses all combat capacities.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I can’t imagine them destroying her shield since it is a family bloodline weapon. Especially since it is do unique and she specializes in its use. So substituting for a new weapon after using this one for so long is probably impossible.

          • Luke Confidential

            It’s probably a self-repairing weapon similar to Excalibur. If it DOES break, she’ll just have to make due without it for a few months while it heals.

  • Majk

    Did..Did Ying’er finnaly manage to lear a new spell????? Pls tell me that it is true and not that she was prepering to give McDull some super strong crystal.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I think this might have been Demon Summoning Gate plus her Spiritual Stove. Sadly I think it will be a little bit before we see the results of it.

      On the bright side she is one step away from getting all the spells, lol!

  • Renegade

    just read the recent chapter manga. wow its so far behind compared to where we are at.

    • Robin

      Especially since the novel is finished since some time ago.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Whats kind of funny is it is so far behind and it even condenses events like crazy as well. I mean they did the visit to Hao Yue’s world for the first time in one chapter O.o.

        • Robin

          Yeah, it really reduces it to a laughing matter. I mean, the DD1 manwha also reduces parts like the Slaughter City arc but still remains true to the story, but this is not even funny in my opinion.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            To be fair I had to stop reading the Manhwa after they found a way to PG a place called Slaughter City to the point there is no blood O.o.

  • ZaX

    Has drugs-bro utility is improving by quite a bit. Thanks for the chapter

  • Anto Wibowo

    Lin xin one shot phoenix really reminds me of a certain explosion only girl.
    Thank you for the chapter!

  • Luke Confidential

    Han Yu is finally a badass again.

    • yep, it’s nice to also see him in action instead of always staying in Haochen’s shadow

  • Sakura

    this always has bothered me; why is the comments section taking up a little more than half of the chapter page?

    • Robin

      I am not sure if I understand what you mean. Do you refer to the presentation ratio of the chapter to the comments below? If so, that highly depends on how enthusiastic the commenters are. Sometimes the comment section is rather empty and short compared to the chapter length, and sometimes it expands over time. There is no real intention behind it.

  • Erebus

    Thanks!
