Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 408

Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 408: Awakening as a God’s Chosen one, Reaper’s Sickle (III)

Haoyue entered the scene! Long Haochen’s good little brother and companion finally appeared on the battlefield.

Why did Long Haochen not have Haoyue help him out when facing Ah’Bao before? The reason was to let Haoyue gather power and prepare.

Perhaps his fusion with Haoyue would have injured Ah’Bao further, but Long Haochen knew very clearly that he would still be unable to kill Ah’Bao. Since things were like this, why not keep Haoyue’s strength hidden as reserve? By taking all circumstances into consideration, one could say that as long as Haoyue was still present, he would have a method to ensure his safe escape from the battlefield.

Essence of Disorder once again appeared on the battlefield, but it wasn’t the same as before. The current Haoyue wasn’t merely three-headed anymore, but became a four-headed beast with the addition of Little Blue. Therefore, the tri-elemental Essence of Disorder now became quadro-elemental. But this change wasn’t as simple as the addition of one head! The increase in power made the powerful multi-elemental chaos a spell of the seventh step.

Haoyue had prepared his magic long before, waiting only for Long Haochen to summon him to his side. Thus, the instant he appeared, he directly attacked with his spell.

Because the Demon Hunter Removers were very close, the instant this spell deployed, all the Demon Hunter Removers were affected. If Long Haochen had enough people with him right now, this would be a great opportunity to wipe out a large amount of enemies.

Unfortunately, Long Haochen could now only rely on himself.

Giving a concerned look to Cai’er, he saw that Cai’er was still in the last stages of her awakening, and that intense grey radiance was fusing bit by bit with her. As the massive grey scythe behind her formed, she grasped it with her right hand. Cai’er’s purple hair gradually gained a crystal-like grey coloration, gaining a sparkle, which seemed very strange.

Long Haochen’s reserves were already back to one third, which was sufficient for him to activate the Eternal Melody and teleport away with Cai’er, but Cai’er’s awakening was not finished yet. If he chose this time to teleport Cai’er as well, who knew what the consequences would be. Even if it was just a tiny wound, he wasn’t willing for it to appear on Cai’er.

Thus, after Haoyue released the Essence of Disorder, Long Haochen didn’t carry out his original plan to immediately teleport himself and Cai’er, but clenched his dual swords and stayed at Cai’er’s side to protect her.

Haoyue didn’t immediately enter a weak state afterwards like the last time. Raising his four heads upwards, he suddenly turned around and swept his strong long tail around.

Under the stifling influence of Essence of Disorder, even those demon powerhouses of the eighth step were in a very weak state, and when swept at by Haoyue’s bulky tail, seven or eight demons were instantly sent flying.

How would the Twelfth and the Eleventh Holy Guard let such a good chance slip? The red figure was already rushing forward, and with a flicker of crimson, its immense bone blade was waved freely. Two demons under the influence of Essence of Disorder were cut in half, and the blue figure waved its staff to summon four fist-sized crystals that faced all cardinal directions. Upon reaching the demons, they violently exploded and blew a large amount of demons away.

The Twelfth and the Eleventh Holy Guard were nourished in Long Haochen’s Eternal Melody, so their cultivation increased along with Long Haochen’s.

The Eleventh Holy Guard was originally an ice mage of the seventh step, but the Twelfth Holy Guard broke through to the seventh step along with Long Haochen. Therefore, both had a strength that reached the seventh step right when they appeared.

They weren’t equipped with formidable equipment, but had their battle skills from ancient times. The two great Holy Guards rushed out simultaneously, immediately repelling the demons under the state of Essence of Disorder.

However, Long Haochen’s group was after all surrounded by six Demon Hunter Remover squads. Including Ah’Bao, a total of six powerhouses of the eighth step were there. With the possession of their higher step, the effects they sustained from Essence of Disorder were relatively smaller. After a short time of turning frenetic, these six powerhouses of the eighth step finally showed the initiative to counterattack.

Ah’Bao was blocked by the Eleventh Holy Guard. The fire bone blade danced freely, and searched for a gap in Ah’Bao’s defense.

However, the Eleventh Holy Guard wasn’t Long Haochen, and although he had a great technique, and could use Asura Strike to its limits, he still didn’t have the powerful sword intent or the light elemental spiritual energy of the former.

Ah’Bao didn’t even avoid the attack of the Eleventh Holy Guard, and let his bone blade strike against his body, counterattacking with his terrible punch.

Although the Eleventh Holy Guard evaded this attack, he had no way to prevent Ah’Bao from charging towards Long Haochen.


Two demons powerhouses of the eighth step sent the Eleventh Holy Guard flying with their cooperation. Even having an even greater dexterity would have been futile in front of the absolute suppression of the difference in spiritual energy. Right at this moment, only Haoyue was left to shield Long Haochen and Cai’er.

Haoyue didn’t keep using magic aside from sustaining Essence of Disorder to weaken all the demons, thus could only use his brute force.

But for the first time, Haoyue completely revealed the current level of his physical strength.

The first one he faced was Ah’Bao, raising his upper body to aim a claw at him.

With a roar, Ah’Bao’s body flickered, revealing his True Devil Dragon Form, rudely aiming straight at Haoyue’s attack.

With a violent clash, Haoyue’s massive body shook, and under Ah’Bao’s bombardment, he was pushed aside. But even under the use of the True Devil Dragon Form, Ah’Bao still staggered from that claw attack.

Not only that, but Haoyue also had the time to sweep his massive tail, and knock his four large heads in four directions, forcibly stopping the attacks of four powerhouses of the eighth step.

Although they were weakened by Essence of Disorder, these were still demon powerhouses of the eighth step! Yet confronting the robust Haoyue, they were actually unable to completely break through his defense.

However, Haoyue was still unable to defend all sides at the same time, and from one side, a demon powerhouse of the eighth step arrived in front of Long Haochen.

The Aria of the Goddess of Light welcomed the red sword of the Fiend of the eighth step. With an ear-piercing buzzing sound, Long Haochen was shaken but didn’t draw back in the slightest, and his dense sword intent left a deep trace on the chest of his enemy.

The Eleventh and the Twelfth Holy Guard were already back at Long Haochen’s side, protecting his two flanks while displaying their fighting strength to the fullest.

However, also right at this time, Haoyue’s Essence of Disorder started to lose effect and the powerhouses of the seventh step started to recover from Essence of Disorder, also launching their attacks from all sides.

Crossing his two swords, Long Haochen was under the effects of the Bursting Spiritual Pill and the Bloodthirsty Pill he took just before. He went as far as possible to muster every bit of his strength. However, he was in the end still a person and not a god, and when besieged by so many demon powerhouses, Haoyue, Long Haochen, and the two Holy Guards all started to show some injuries.

However, Long Haochen was still unwilling to give up. He clearly knew that as long as he lasted for some more time, Cai’er’s awakening would be completed. Until this time came, he couldn’t bring Cai’er back through teleportation.

Bang, bang, bang Haoyue and Ah’Bao were battling with their full strength, and Ah’Bao actually didn’t hold much advantage. Haoyue’s four large heads were like four huge battering rams that attacked the enemies unceasingly. And the bulge on one of his heads emitted a faint red and seemed to be breaking out at anytime.

The battle was growing desperate, and Long Haochen was using his full strength to exert Asura Strike in combination with the sword intent from the Aria of the Goddess of Light, which finally sent that Fiend of the eighth step flying. But a demon of the seventh step took advantage of the situation to attack right then, aiming a black blade at his waist.

A fiery figure brazenly appeared at Long Haochen’s side, forcibly using its body to block that blade. Its rib was instantly crashed, but this Twelfth Holy Guard still straightened its posture and valiantly used his shattered bones to forcibly stop the opponent’s long blade. Striking him with red glint, he forcibly sent that demon of the seventh step flying.

A similar situation appeared in the other side. The spells of the Eleventh Holy Guard finally crumbled in front of so many powerful enemies, and he used his own body to block a purplish black round projectile aimed at Long Haochen. One of its arms was ripped from its shoulder as it exploded.

The injuries on Haoyue’s body were even more serious as he was facing five demons of the eighth step by himself! His total strength was however only at the seventh step and no more. Even with greater physical power, he was in the end only at the seventh step. One cut after another appeared on his body as his mournful cries sounded out, but these injuries were healing at an astonishing speed under the shocked gaze of the demons. Haoyue’s attacks were still as frantic as before, the only difference being that his eyes gradually darkened and the purple light on his body became more and more intense.


The red Twelfth Holy Guard was finally turned into fragments by the attacks of that Fiend of the eighth step. Turning into a red glow of light, he flew back into Long Haochen’s Eternal Melody, and the Eleventh Holy Guard on the other side could only last one second longer.

The blue figure was also smashed to pieces, similarly returning to the Eternal Melody. As long as their master didn’t die, given sufficient time, they would recover.

Having lost his two protectors, Long Haochen had to face the encirclement of the demon powerhouses directly. Currently, he was already physically and emotionally exhausted.

However, behind him, Cai’er was still absorbing the last bits of grey luster from the air, and didn’t yet complete her awakening.

Clenching his teeth fiercely, golden light was released from Long Haochen’s eyes as a decisive power burst out from his body. An intense dark golden flame ignited. Just like Tian Qing did when pushed into a corner, the current him was igniting his own flame of life.

After all, being a god’s chosen one, the ignition of Long Haochen’s flame of life produced far greater results than Tian Qing’s. The illusion of the goddess of light that appeared before came to view once again, and with his dual swords carrying a profound sword intent, he forcibly chopped past two demon powerhouses of the seventh step. His two swords harmoniously executed Asura Strikes, bursting against the red sword blow of a demon of the eighth step, forcing him five steps away.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • Kilimandaros

    I think that it should be Twelfth Holy Guard, instead of Eleventh, fighting with Ah’Bao. “Ah’Bao was blocked by the Eleventh Holy Guard. The fire bone blade danced freely, and searched for a gap in Ah’Bao’s defense.” Twelfth was red with sword. Same with next few sentences.

    I hope we will get a chapter of Cai’er personally nursing Haochen back to full health. She also owes Hao Yue a mountain of fish as a show of gratitude.

    Quite a fight. Quite a fight indeed.

    • Donald Trump

      Hao ye is not Happy to get fish…seriously though, the physical relationship between them has been less due to their age. Now that they are older, it would be nice to see them may be kiss once.

    The 11th and 12th holy guards came out of nowhere… I was like wait what? When did he summon them? But omg can you make an exception and come out with the next chapter tomorrow?! What a cliffhanger 😭

    • Argos Yesu

      Last chapter, a blue and red thing jumped out of LHC’s chest. It’s kinda implied here that they were the Ice Mage 11th guard and the Red Knight 12th guard.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      “Two radiances rushed out of Long Haochen’s chest: one red and one blue, swiftly flying to the battlefield.

      These two massive figures brazenly blocked Ah’Bao’s way, and a terrible aura of ice was suddenly released from that blue figure, abruptly forming a tough Resisting Ice Ring.”

      From last chapter.

  • Jonathan Hurd

    “The injuries on Haoyue’s body were even more serious as he was facing five demons of the eighth step by himself! His total strength was however only at the seventh step and no more. Even with greater physical power, he was in the end only at the seventh step. One cut after another appeared on his body as his mournful cries sounded out, but these injuries were healing at an astonishing speed under the shocked gaze of the demons. Haoyue’s attacks were still as frantic as before, the only difference being that his eyes gradually darkened and the purple light on his body became more and more intense.”

    So when did Hao Yue become 7th Step? I can believe his total strength was Seventh Step, but I do not remember him evolving to 7th….

    • Robin

      I guess with his last evolution. I am not sure when his level of cultivation was last mentioned. But he also had the chance to consume a lot of demon crystals during this trip, so it is not unlikely that he leveled up together with Haochen.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        My only problem with that is the last time they mentioned him evolving it was from 5th step to 6th step. That was the evolution that got interrupted and he was left with four instead of five heads. So his 6th step evolution didn’t completely finish and now he is suddenly seventh step…? I find that a bit strange.

        If they want to say he is on the verge of completely inheriting the power he should of had at the end of that evolution I can go with that, but 7th step feels like it should be accompanied by a head or two.

        • Blackfuht

          I think it was a typo because when he was evolving, he was already at the peak of the 6th step, him sprouting a single head should not have kept him at the 6th step. Also, he normally skips about 2 levels with each evolution so think of it as 2 levels for every new head. Since he only evolved one and got held back, it makes sense that he only went up 1 level.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            There are a few corrections that need to be made there. Back then we were calling him 6th rank. As in he was a 6th rank beast or the 5th step human equivalent. The other thing is that the story distinctly stated that when he was evolving from 5th step to 6th step he would only go up that one step instead of two like he had before.

            I have been personally wondering if he is even officially 6th step yet since the evolution was interrupted. I think he did manage to make his way into the 6th step, but the sheer amount of energy it would take to get to 7th step would be astronomical. It took him eating hundreds if not thousands of Magic Crystals just to get to a point where he could evolve and he even lost some of that energy.

            He also lacked any super stimulus like he had for those first two evolution’s. The first one being LHC’s blood which was almost like purified light element and that 7th step dragon pill he used for the second evolution.

          • Blackfuht

            Yes I agree, so he must be a 7 1/2th rank 7th step human or close to it. Since his bulge is very distinct, he’s near evolution again so almost an 8th rank 7th step human? He’s always been slightly ahead oh LHC in terms of cultivation.

          • leopold1983

            Well, he always rest or sleep because like a cow he need time to assimilate it’s food. Even though he always eat a lot and stores it in his stomach, he can’t use them immediately. So even if he doesn’t have thousand crystal at each step, he should have enough stored to keep evolving. He’s just such a glouton that he always eat because he never know when he will have the same opportunity. I d’ont really see anything odd. Plus since LHC is close to the 7th step he should be of the 7th step and close to the 8th. Usually mount are one step further.

          • Blackfuht


        • Robin

          I assume that his power is on the same level as a 7th step. Maybe the description was ambigious.

  • Alex Drake

    Given the preview I think it’s safe to say that Ahbao and every other demon in the vicinity is going to die the moment Cai’er’s awakening is complete.

  • leopold1983

    Thank you Totobro and sponsor Matthew K!

  • JBJHova

    Thank you for the chapter. This novel is so dedicated to LHC being part of a team. I have never seen a novel where being a part of a team has suppressed an MC to such a degree. Even Caier is forcing him to suffer in a situation in where he could normally succeed on his own. This team and friendships are severely holding him back. I guess that is why OP MCs don’t usually stay with groups of people for long.

    • Kilimandaros

      Sometimes Haochen faces hardships because he has to protect his teammates, but it’s closely related to his character (he chose to be Guardian Knight to protect people close to him). However many times he survived only thanks to his friends – fight with Moon Demon of the 8th step or whole ordeal in Illusory Paradise.

      • Robin

        I agree. Although many MCs choose to get strong to protect those dear to them, LHC is the only one I know of, who choose a class who limits attack power in a way, but enables him to better protect the others. Sure, he can doubletime, but when he first made his decision, this was not yet completely clear. This fact alone features teamwork and the will to get stronger together in my book. Which I rather like in this LN. Tang San is similar in a way, but he still focuses on his own power ups, not only regarding his spirit rings, but also his work as a smith and his political influence as a clan leader.

      • JBJHova

        I am not totally knocking team work, but if his team’s best attribute is sharing pain, then they are lacking. The team was present during the fight with the moon demon and the illusory Paradise ordeal, but they only survived due to LHC’s direction and excellence. There actual contribution barely ever surpassed sharing pain due to the linking chains. Caier and Haoyue are the only team members who contribute during tough fights. The others are only talented at slaughtering small fries. Except the alchemist. Pill bro is useful because pills are useful.

        • Kilimandaros

          I think that you compare them to Haochen and Cai’er a bit to much. Yuanyuan, Sima, Ying’er, Lin Xin and Han Yu are cream of the top of their generation, but you compare them to the talents which didn’t appear in thousand years, which is a bit unfair. In theory you shouldn’t really have a chance against enemy of higher step than you, but Haochen’s teammates hold their ground against demons of the 7th step since advancing to 6th step. However, it’s completely different matter against enemiest of 8th step or against huge number of 7th step. Haochen is exceptionally strong, so his enemies have to be strong enough to be problem for him, but it sometimes make them too strong for the rest of the team. And in fight against moon demon they gifted Haochen spiritual energy via Conjoined Spiritual Boosting Pills, while against Ah’bao they dealt considerable amount of damage to him or helped to defend Xiaolei – I wouldn’t call it barely surpassing sharing pain. You could say the same about Haochen – he only survived due to his teammates.

        • Robin

          This being said, they are almost all the time facing opponents far above their power level. True, in the past main fights, like against Ah’Bao and the Moon Demon, they contribute barely, but if they would face opponents of the seventh step, things would be different. Just remember when they started fulfilling their slaughter missions. Then, the others had their times to shine as well. So far, the plot focused on giving the MC chances to level up and use all his new techniques. I am sure other teams will not take on missions ranking close to king grade level and therefore risk to be outclasssed during real fights. In those teams, there should not be that much of a power difference between the leader and the rest. But we already learned that the others have a lot of potential to unfold in the future. I bet, as soon as they reach a certain level of strength, it will be an awesome team.

    • Kaarme

      I’m surprised you only see the negative sides of working in a team. In my opinion the novel has made a remarkable and believable effort to concentrate on the positive aspects, despite featuring an OP main character.

      Not to mention his lovable, super cute girlfriend is in the same team. Nothing he does for Cai’er’s sake is suffering for Haochen. Because he loves her.

      • JBJHova

        The novel has done an incredible job in displaying great teamwork and team building. I am just not sure his team members have lived up to being his team mates. It seems more like LHC is the personal bodyguard for 6 others. LHC train the team, LHC provide the team with opportunities, LHC draw the enemy offensive for the team, LHC provide an escape for the team, LHC sacrifice for the team. Other than the alchemist who is always useful, the other team members only do well when the competition is weak. Considering how talented they are and how blessed they are with opportunities, up until this point they are really just holding LHC back.

        LHC could really be peak level 7 right now and making a team with his parents already.

        • Kaarme

          In his old man’s team, he would be the one being looked after, being supported, given free opportunities, etc.

          This is all leadership training for Haochen. Nothing trains a leader better than being a leader with full responsibility. While it might also hold him back in pure personal battle prowess, it gives equally in other areas. Although that being said, the whole human world is astonished by his progress, so he doesn’t really have anything to worry about. I’m pretty sure he has said himself during this story that there are real dangers in getting too strong too fast.

          Still, you are correct about the story needing to give more chances to the others. So far they have been quite passive. Cai’er is the “your glory is my glory” type, but at least we have some hope with the world destroyer!

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I know I’m a little late replying to this one, but had a long few days so just found the time now.

      I just really wanted to point out. LHC wouldn’t be alive without his team right now. Without Lin Xin’s pills LHC would of died trying to protect Hao Yue during his second evolution. Without Cai’er he would of probably died to Ah’Bao in the Illusory Paradise or quite a few other places. Without Yinger the whole team would of died during the point where the Yue Ye caravan was jumped. Without Han Yu the whole team would of died while LHC was investigating the Tower of Eternity.

      I would say yes LHC is suffering protecting Cai’er right now, but she has also suffered trying to protect him. Hell she gave up four out of six senses for seven months to protect the team members. The whole team has jumped in front of multiple bullets to protect each other time and time again.

      I understand that this author has a thing for teams and I find it helps add a lot of interesting depth to the story. LHC is one person. As Grandmaster from the authors first novel Combat Continent would say. There is no one perfect fighter, but there can be a perfect team. LHC is strong on his own but there are a lot of shortcomings too. He can’t summon beasts/ bluff by transforming into them, he can’t heal as well as a priest, he can’t sneak like an Assassin, he can’t do huge spells like a mage, and he can’t create pills. What he can do is protect and burst. He does those well, but that leaves a lot of bases uncovered.

      His final opponent isn’t just Ah’Bao or the DGE. It is the entire Demon Army. LHC alone will not be able to stop that no matter how great he is. As a team though. With many powerful allies. There is hope.

      To me LHC strengthening his team is not him weakening himself. It is adding to his power. What kind of amazing benefits could LHC get by leaving his teammates in the dust? Sure he can get stronger by worrying about himself, but what happens when you meet someone stronger than you. If he hadn’t helped his teammates train to his level in power and skill he would still have to fight them all alone.

      I like to think of LHC’s team as one body. When someone trains their body to fight. They don’t just pour all their effort into one arm or leg. They distribute it to all the parts. Sure you have a hand or leg you favor and are better at using, but throwing away the other body parts is just wasteful.

      LHC’s dad is considered one of the strongest Knights in the entire alliance, and he can’t win against the 7th DG. There are 6 higher ranking DG’s and armies backing them. Compare that to the DG Slayers team. They are 6 individuals but together they have kept the almighty existence the DGE in check.

      • Robin

        Do you remember when the knight from the DG Slayers talks to them after the DGE left the Exorcist Mountain Pass? He tells them that he thought he had found a successor to his position after Long Xingyu appeared, but was disappointed because he was too independant and self-oriented. He gives the Bright Rays of Sunshine the Soul Linking Chains and implicitely names them the successors of the DGSs because they are a team with a lot of potential and Haochen as their core and soul. I don’t think he would have done so if he would not believe that they can become a throughout powerful team. Xingyu might be one of the strongest knights in history, but Haochen is still already seen as someone who can reach even higher realms, at least possibly, because he weighs the important of his team more highly.

      • JBJHova

        I just want to say I love that so may people responded to my comments. I love the debate. I am speaking as a fan of individual characters; so I do feel LHC is restrained in his role in this novel. I understand the necessity of his team and their role. As a fan of individuality it disappoints me to see the disparity that continues to grow between (LHC, Caier, & Haoyue) vs the rest of the team. If they are going to be with him for the rest of the novel they need to step it up big time because he is leaving them in the dust. If the disparity is too big there will more scenes of him bailing them out instead of facing the difficulties the demons and future enemies provide.

        Thank you for the comment and I love this novel very much; these are opinions not criticisms.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          No worries. I think everyone wants to see LHC do more awesome things. I am still praying to see him cast some god damn Necromancy spells soon T.T.

          The big thing for me is that LHC is kind of defined by his willingness towards self sacrifice. It wouldn’t really be a sacrifice if he wasn’t losing something in the end. To truly sacrifice means to give up something you want. The biggest example of that for me came when he let Yating go. Part of me screamed that I wanted him to get the power up, but at the same time he wouldn’t be our LHC if he did.

          The way I like to think of the power dynamic is comparing LHC, Cai’er, and Hao Yue against each other. Then comparing the rest of the DHS against one another. What I always find fun is that every time we see LHC get a huge power up I think to myself ‘Well now Cai’er and Hao Yue will fall behind’. Then I watch them take a rocket forward.

          It is an interesting kind of arms race. LHC started out behind Cai’er then boosted past thanks to Elux and Yating. Hao Yue was behind LHC then evolved once. After he fell back behind LHC he evolved again to an even higher peak. Cai’er got probably the most advantages from the stove fusing in the Illusory Paradise and now she is awakening and I get the feeling she might be the top once its done.

          What I like is who is at the top keeps rotating around and we know its gotta get crazier because Hao Yue has about five more heads to add. To keep up with him Cai’er and LHC need to get some pretty insane things.

          For the rest of the DHS they all have been shown to have a power level that at least won’t hinder in a fight. The author made sure to show that with the start of these slaughter missions. When each person single handedly killed their own 6th step demon quickly and efficiently. They have shown to be capable of fighting people one or two steps above themselves too.

    • Seemstress

      While I do agree that they’re holding LHC back in some ways, like I mentioned in one of the previous chapters, they’re pretty much leeching off of the MC, that will never change though. While the teammates are the top talents of their generation, they are simply outclassed by LHC, Cai’er and Hao Yue. You must remember that they are gods’ chosen ones and it seems like a world destroyer. They are people (creature in Hao Yue’s case) that appear only once every few thousand years. They cannot be compared to normal talents. The gap will never cease to exist and it is meaningless to expect for their teammates to be equal.
      Remember that none of the other teams are not nearly as powerful as LHC’s team. If it weren’t for LHC they probably wouldn’t even be a commander grade squad yet. In any other team they would have been considered very good teammates (well, I say that, but 2 of them are actually leeching off of LHC’s innate talent and wouldn’t be as powerful without him) and wouldn’t hold anyone back, if their team worked around their quirks of being a defense only mage, attack only priest etc.
      Also, can you not consider that the team’s strength is just and extension of LHC’s power? Stregthening his team in turns strengthens himself, so it is perfectly reasonable to sacrifice some personal growth for his teammates’ growth. And I think someone already mentioned somewhere, that LHC himself said that growing too quickly can have negative effects as well.
      TL;DR: LHC, Cai’er and Hao Yue can’t be compared to normal people.

    Please forgive me for my inactiveness and these really bad jokes :<
    Thank you ~.~

    • Psyside

      isnt legendary a bit low?

      • Evilage

        Yeah it probably is, but i forgot the rankings 😐

      You can also use this convenient meat shield as a cuddling pillow with integrated hot-water bottle function. It works as a night light and comes with absolute loyality. 😉

      • Evilage

        Yes. best equipment offensive, defensive and utility wise.

    • Seemstress

      Well I’m sure the Knight Temple is willing to sacrifice a few pieces of legendary tier equipment for LHC.

  • What the hell is with the title? Naming three chapters after just Cai’er getting a fancy sickle?
    I thought she was going to rip the demons apart…

  • Jorge Bonilla

    I dont know why, but I think Ah’Bao is LHC uncle

    One more day before the next chapter. Will we finally get news of Cai’er awakening and see a sea of blood?

    • Robin

      Just wait and see, good things are waiting for you! 😛

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Good things for us… Bad for the demons… 😛

        • Robin

          Don’t you love the suspence we are held in?

          • Jonathan Hurd

            If I say yes do we get the chapter sooner…,lol?

            I don’t think love is the right word. Angry that I don’t have enough stable income so I can end our wait, yes.

            I was more referring to the suspense build in this arc. The story is nervewrecking and one holds the breath in wait for more. And no one can really predict what will happen next.

            Sorry, the chapter is not ready yet. The release will be done as usual, as soon as the work is done and the workday allows it.
