Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 438


Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 438: Demon God Transformation (II)

The Devil Snakes retreated with haste, stepping in the poisonous fog while leaving the battle. Only the four Medusas remained, remaining concealed behind the demon god pillar.

A chance!

Long Haochen’s eyes glistened almost maniacally. No longer watching the clash between the two great powerhouses, which he thought was an undoubtedly rare occasion, paired with a chance to complete the Demon Hunt Squad Missions they took.

His figure twinkled, stepping back into the poisonous fog. Long Haochen didn’t summon his comrades, as this time, too many wouldn’t necessarily be for the better. He also wanted the others to keep their strength, so he chose to enter the poisonous fog alone, to chase.

To avoid releasing a powerful holy aura, he didn’t use Aria of the Goddess of Light. In his right hand was the Rippling Light, and his senses perked up, feeling the location of the retreating Devil Snakes. The Devil Snakes were completely relying on their sense of smell at this time, but in this place full of poisonous fog, it was visibly massively weakened.

Long Haochen very rapidly groped the back of a Devil Snake, and thrusting the sword in his hand, he produced a flash of light while instantly piercing the skull of that Devil Snake.

Long Haochen’s sword intent was something even Ah’Bao wouldn’t dare confront, so there was nothing to say about these Devil Snakes.

The fighting intent he had been restraining erupted, as Long Haochen was completely driven by his senses. Every time he made a move, his location changed instantly, using the simplest of pattern of attacks with Demon Wiping Flash.

Combined with sword intent, Demon Wiping Flash made a perfect match, without a doubt killing a Devil Snake at every strike. More terrifyingly, the Devil Snakes all died being penetrated in the head by Long Haochen’s swords, hardly even getting the chance to scream. Occasionally, little sounds would be heard, but interrupted as their throat would get pierced, with their owner cowering in fear.

And Long Haochen was not the only one interfering the fleeing Devil Snakes; don’t forget about the Forest Boas that submerged themselves in the swamps!

The Forest Boas bitterly hated these intruders. At the time the Devil Snake King gave the Devil Snakes the order to retreat, the Forest Boa King also used his own methods to give his clansmen the order to chase.

As a result, the Devil Snakes whose vision wasn’t clear were hunted as food by the Forest Boas.

As Long Haochen’s senses were on full tilt, he could of course perceive the current situation of these Devil Snakes. In the poisonous fog, a surge of spiritual energy of darkness element kept sweeping past one after another. This was the counterattack launched by the Devil Snakes. However, without the demon god pillar to disperse the fog, their fighting strength plummeted substantially, let alone their co-ordination. For a moment, these elites Devil Snakes could be said to be subject to a disastrous destruction.

The Swamps of Gloom was still in the end a territory under the control of the Forest Boas, which could even be called their domain, their home ground. he Forest Boa King had been ruling over this place for who knows how long, to the extent that even the Saw Skate King surpassing him in strength didn’t reach his status as a ruler. Although the Snake Demon God Andromalius had the advantage, gaining victory against him was not going to be such an easy feat.

It could be said that when these ordinary Forest Boas started submerging into the swamps, Andromalius was already caught in the trap of the Forest Boa King.

At this moment, as Andromalius was merged as one with his demon god pillar, his perception in Demon God Transformed state was a lot higher than usual as well. The screams of his clansmen naturally reached his ears, but now that he was caught in fierce struggle against the Forest Boa King, and that their battle was already at its peak, he was unable to do anything about it. All he could do was to fiercely attack the Forest Boa King.

One had no choice but to admit that the Demon God Transformed Andromalius’s situation was quite terrible. In this state, his body was not the slightest bit inferior to the Forest Boa King, and in his hands, there were powerful weapons. The scars inflicted on the Forest Boa King’s body kept increasing, and although Andromalius didn’t have it easy either, his recovery speed still vastly surpassed his enemy’s. And moreover, he still had helpers beside him.

Four pairs of white eyes opened without a sound behind the distant demon god pillar, and eight white beams hit the body of the Forest Boa King in a flash.

Suddenly, the whole body of the Forest Boa King went rigid, making a frantic turn. With this, another layer of his snake skin came off, as he resisted the effects of Petrification.

This undoubtedly made Andromalius’ attacks lose a lot of their ferocity.

How could Andromalius let go of such a good chance? His eyes were soaked in blood, and the spears in his hands held high, despite that his massive and supple body, was close to forming an angle of ninety degrees. A strong darkness essence of black color attached itself to the two spears, before they ferociously struck the Forest Boa King’s body.

Blood spattered, some dark green blood flew in all directions. Shouting in rage, the Forest Boa King shot out at full force, creating some distance with Andromalius with difficulty, but one could clearly see some black light curling up on his body. On that massive wound were traces of severe corrosion.

“Arggh.”

The Forest Boa King was utterly furious, and flames were almost gushing out from his jade colored eyes. A terrible green projectile of one meter diameter shot out, directly smashing against Andromalius.

As this person was doing his utmost, one thought surged to Andromalius’ mind, as his body made an horizontal turn. That was the internal pill of a powerhouse of the ninth step. Although he wanted to take it, if this item under control of the Forest Boa King were to smash his body, even if is was more durable, it could only end up unfavorably for him.

The same time he did this turn, a gaudy dark golden color started to lit up Andromalius’ body. As he lifted up the spear in his hand, a mirage appeared beside him with a strident hiss. It was about the same as his body in height, heading straight for that internal pill.

But a strange scene followed. The originally enraged Forest Boa King suddenly revealed a shrewd look. His overbearing internal pill actually made a turn in the air, and didn’t aim at Andromalius, but straight at that demon god pillar.

Andromalius showed great surprise, but the next instant, his eyes suddenly revealed an expression of disdain. The Forest Boa King was scheming against him, but wasn’t he doing the same?

Bang!

The whole Swamps of Gloom shook up violently, and an intense explosion burst on the seventy-second demon god pillar. Violent green and black light blossomed therein.

This time, the Forest Boa King made a miscalculation. He knew from the beginning that the real threat against him was not Andromalius, but this pillar he brought. But he also understood clearly that finding a chance to attack it was in no way going to be easy.

He acted as if enraged against Andromalius, and shot the internal pill. Having found this extremely rare opportunity, how could he not go all out in his attack? From his viewpoint, as long as this demon god pillar was destroyed, Andromalius could only die in defeat after this.

However, he miscalculated something: his estimate of the strength possessed by the demon god pillar.

In that violent explosion, the Forest Boa King’s body suddenly shivered ardently, as if subject to symptoms of malaria. His internal pill bounced back to him at an astonishing speed, but the jade light on it became a lot darker.

Not only that, but the radiance glowing on the Forest Boa King also dimmed.

Andromalius howled with laughter, before throwing himself at him once again. All along, the mirage born from him followed disregarding everything and launching attacks. He wasn’t going to let such a great chance slip by.

In the history of humanity and demonkind, situation of a demon god getting killed happened many times over, but the seventy-two demon god pillars guarding demonkind were never destroyed. Even a divine tool has never destroyed these demon treasures, to say nothing about the internal pill of a Forest Boa King.

After this miscalculation, the Forest Boa King suffered a violent backlash due to the violent clash suffered by his internal pill, putting it into an extremely weak state. The Devil Snake Demon God Andromalius took advantage of this, frantically launching attacks. For a moment, the body of the Forest Boa King kept getting blown to pieces, visibly somewhat unable to endure.

In terms of strength, the Forest Boa King should originally have held an absolute advantage, after all the gap between the ninth step and the peak of the eighth step corresponds to an incredible gap, and the Forest Boa King was in complete control of the elemental essence in the area.

However, the demon god pillar just showed too great a utility. Not only giving the Snake Devil God a powerful backup in elemental essence, but also raising his external spiritual energy over a hundred thousand units. This caused the gap between the two sides to decrease.

The Forest Boa King was already successful in his past series of plans, and this caused his self confidence to grow, to the extent of committing a fatal mistake with his internal pill that got inflicted a backlash due to the demon god pillar, leading to such an absolute disadvantage.

However, the bombarding of the internal pill against the demon god pillar just before didn’t prove out useless. At least, the four Medusas hidden behind it fell into the swamps due to the powerful shockwaves, letting out blood from their mouth and nose. Rapidly climbing up, they still avoided getting sunk into the swamps though.

Although Medusas had quite overwhelming abilities, they were in the end still Devil Snakes of the sixth step only. The offensive power of the internal pill was completely sustained by the demon god pillar, but the terrible surge of spiritual energy that came along spread to a certain range, still injuring these four Medusas.

A faint green flash came, before coming to a sudden stagnation. This sudden movement and stop appeared very weird, and the position of its stagnation was the center of the area occupied by the four Medusas.

Immediately, that green color turned into a tornado, bursting out in countless green circles. With a piercing hissing sound, those four Medusas immediately screamed loudly.

At this time they didn’t even dare open their eyes, because the violent fluctuations of spiritual energy caused them to enter a dizzy state. What if the Petrifying Rays were to fall on their comrades? In fact, even the Medusas themselves weren’t immune to their Petrifying Rays.

Nonetheless, these Medusas were still powerhouses of the sixth step. The snake hair on their head bubbled up frantically, in an attempt to resist against the green attacks. However, all their snake hair were reduced to fragments upon contact with the green light, which was the reason for their screams. That was a part of their own bodies!

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • MangoGuy

    aye aye….probably grabbed will be better than groped?

    • Luke Confidential

      No.

  • Seemstress

    One had no choice but to admit that the Demon God Transformed Andromalius’s situation was quite terrible

    Really? The following description of the situation would indicate otherwise, that Andromalius’ situation wasn’t terrible.

    The pillars haven’t faced destruction up to now. I guess this is about to change, either LHC as a Chosen or HaoYue with his violet energy will destroy it. Probably? Maybe?

    • Jonathan Hurd

      The thing is that Andromalius has brought the majority of the elites of his tribe and now they are being killed while hes busy fighting the Boa King. Even if he succeeds (which was unlikely till the Boa King fucked up) he has lost the majority of his tribe. Before the Boa King hit the Pillar they were basically tied in strength. The exception being the Boa Kings forces are just overwhelmingly stronger.

      • Seemstress

        That makes sense I guess. I didn’t pay attention to the whole battle, only the fight of the leaders. If the author’s talking about the battle as a whole that statement does make sense. Though I still think that the fact that just after that statement he goes on to describe only the situation of the Demon God and the Boa King, would indicate that he’s only talking about the fight between the two.

        “In this state, his body was not the slightest bit inferior to the Forest
        Boa King, and in his hands, there were powerful weapons. The scars
        inflicted on the Forest Boa King’s body kept increasing, and although
        Andromalius didn’t have it easy either, his recovery speed still vastly
        surpassed his enemy’s. And moreover, he still had helpers beside him.”

        From this one would assume that the Boa King is the one whose situation was quite terrible, not Andromalius.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          I gotta admit the ordering is a bit off for that part. I think what Andromalius being in a bad position is mainly pointing at is the previous paragraph…

          “At this moment, as Andromalius was merged as one with his demon god pillar, his perception in Demon God Transformed state was a lot higher than usual as well. The screams of his clansmen naturally reached his ears, but now that he was caught in fierce struggle against the Forest Boa King, and that their battle was already at its peak, he was unable to do anything about it. All he could do was to fiercely attack the Forest Boa King.”

          The problem I see is that Andromalius is just matching the Boa King, but his side is losing all their forces. Even as he is trying to use everything hes got he is still mostly led to a tie. So if he doesn’t hurry things up he will lose all his men and then the Boa King’s minions could attack the Medusa’s and he will be screwed.

  • Seemstress

    Reading the preview, how can the medusas petrify each other? The green light (probably the holy guard, right?) is in the center of them and they cannot see up to it because of the mist, so they also shouldn’t be able to see each other, right? If I were the author I would just say that the light disappeared just as they unleashed the petrification power, saying that LHC transported the holy guard back to the tower.

    • JBJHova

      I’m guessing snakes don’t only use their eyes to sense their surroundings; so these medusa can function with their eyes closed, but when faced with an attack from an enemy they chose to open their eyes to face them. Unfortunately their enemy was far away and in the confusion the medusa were too closely huddled together forcing them to see their allies and petrify them.

      That is my comprehension of the situation.

      Thank you very much for the chapter.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Its not them that can’t see each other. Its Andromalis who can’t make out the Green figure. The Medusa’s can’t see because they are keeping their eyes closed for fear of hitting each other. They are also still nearby the DG pillar which is dispelling the Fog so that is why they can see when they open their eyes.

      • Seemstress

        “A faint green flash came, before coming to a sudden stagnation. This
        sudden movement and stop appeared very weird, and the position of its
        stagnation was the center of the area occupied by the four Medusas.”

        Looking at this, it states that the green light is in the center of the four medusas. If it’s in the center then it would be only logical to assume that if they can see each other then they also see the green light.

        “but at the time they opened their eyes, the ones who appeared in their
        sight were their own kin. As for the splendid green figure from whom
        those dazzling skills originated, it was several meters away from their
        sight, causing him to be out of their field of view.”

        This here says that they could see each other once they opened their eyes, once again: How can they not see something that’s in the center of them while being able to see each other?

        The only logical explanation I can think of is that they’re in a perfect square or something close to it. The very center (green light) is further away from the corners (medusas) than they are from each other.
        That would mean that the green light got extremely lucky that they got seperated just enough for them to be close enough to see each other, yet still far enough from each other to not see the very center between them.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          The way I read it is that the 10th holy guard starts by attacking them from the middle of the four medusa’s. Then he senses they are about to attack and he immediately gets out right before they open their eyes. Therefore when the Medusa open their eyes they see each other but the 10th Holy Guard has already long ago fled.

          Considering the speed of the 10th holy guard that is not really hard to imagine him pulling off. Add in that he has better senses and reaction times than LHC himself, and also considering hes seen the Medusa’s attack at least twice he should know what they are going to do and be ready to dodge it.

          • Seemstress

            After reading it once again, I’ve also decided to opt for that opinion. It was my bad to assume that the 10th holy guard is still there considering that it isn’t stated as such, it could very well be that he’s escaped out of their reach.

            I’m hoping that it is explained when we get the rest of the chapter, I doubt the author would leave it open to interpretation on how it happened.

          • Marko Bandur

            As for the splendid green figure from whom
            those dazzling skills originated, it was several meters away from their
            sight, causing him to be out of their field of view.”

            You stated this alone, the green figures already flew away before the medusas opened theyre eyes, snakes dnt use sight to sense enemyes/prays (medusas) dnt use theyre sight at all, it was stated already some chapter ago
            Theres nothing to be explained/clarified or leaved it open to interpretation, u just readed it too fast and skipped the key point of this skirmish, its even stated that they sensed the position of the enemy (aka green skele), and thats why they opened theyre eyes, for self protection or better survival instinct, it just went wrong, in a backfire way

          • Kaarme

            It was a brilliant tactic. If the medusas were in an approx. square formation, then attacking them all from the center would redirect all of their attention toward the center of their own formation and ultimately toward each other. However, since the medusas can’t rely on their sight, there’s always a lag between the reality and their senses. Judge the moment to withdraw correctly, and they will take out each other perfectly.

            I was actually expecting a bit more brutal strike to get rid of the medusas, but this was so smart it’s really cool.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Another part of it is that the Tornado the 10th Holy Guard made confused and disoriented them. They were avoiding opening their eyes for fear of friendly fire until they felt their lives threatened. Then they tried to open their eyes in the direction of the attack killing them. So the 10th Holy guard does the attack in the middle of the square so all the Medusa will shoot at the middle towards each other.

          • Seemstress

            I would agree with you if it was “it was already several meters away,” meaning that it moved away. But it doesn’t and nowhere is it said that it has moved at all other than the attacks it executed but even in the description of the attack it doesn’t say that it moved from the center.
            As for the sight thing, I didn’t mean that they shouldn’t be able to sense it, they obviously can’t. But the petrification DOES use their sight to determine the scope of their attack.

          • Marko Bandur

            Dnt know, i still read that phrase like its flowing correctly, for times etc.. we dnt even know when the attack command started, for that we need to wait the next chap 🙂
            I dnt think an “already” can change that much the time flow in that phrase, consider that this sentence specific the subject and his past position with “As for the splendid green figure from whom those dazzling skills originated” then says that he moved away with “it was several meters away from their sight”

          • Seemstress

            Well, the phrase is perfectly fine as it is, it just doesn’t mention anything about the green light moving.
            Ok after reading this once again for the gazillionth time now (a bit of an exaggeration I know, but still, quite a few times), I finally realised that I guess if you take into account the sentences before this one, you can say that:
            The medusas could sense where the green light was
            Knowing where it was, they thought they would hit it if they opened their eyes.
            The green light wasn’t there.
            And from that you can conclude that it had moved away already. Without needing to use the word already.

            Now, I really regret spending so much time on this trivial issue I made up. At least I wasn’t bored lol.

    Thank you Totobro!

  • nadyvina

    hohoho so…the green energy is the tenth guard…just one more and the slaughtering mission will be complete…I hope that Cai´er recovers her memories in this battle…for some dangerous event with Haochen, they being able to distroy the Demon Pilar, and Hao Yue eating or something it´s remains…xD and then the treasure guarded by the Boa King…keeping the corpses of it…it pill…ohh my…I´m really greedy hhaahah

    • nadyvina

      Now that I´ve read the preview…I´m uncertain if this will count like killing the Medusas after all they´d kill among themselves…

      • Marko Bandur

        Probably not, but theyre just points for the alliance, the important things are the reward, they can farm points how they want, losing 4x 6th step medusa crop, in comparison of increasing the chance to slaughter the 72DG r nothing

        • Jonathan Hurd

          I think that the Eternal Melody kills should work since the DHS tile was said to work with contracted beasts. The Holy Guards seem to be contracted through the Eternal Melody, but a contracted beast/skeleton all the same.

          I was also kind of wondering if the Medusa’s killing each other really counts. I am just going to assume it can because of magic. Maybe do something like last person to human to hit them before they die gets credit.

          • nadyvina

            In fact, who makes the final blow is the one that take the points, and I think the HG kills maybe should be considered just like Yating kills are…

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Basically from how I understand it. Anything that has a contract with you counts towards your kill count. That way Summoners aren’t completely screwed. Also that is why LHC gets Hao Yue’s and Yatings kills added to his tile. For me I would just take it the Holy Guards fall under those rules too.

          • nadyvina

            that´s true indeed…maybe were are kind of confused about this point because of being something related with necromancy, but if with just put that aside and think about it as an hability created for an outstanding treasure, should be fine to think that the kills would count as Haochen´s, just like Hao Yue and Yating

          • Kaarme

            Since they always collect bodies anyway, Haochen can just show the petrified corpses of the medusas back at the Alliance and explain his crafty tactics (without too much details). They might still grant him the points afterwards that way. I doubt medusa bodies are simply lying around everywhere, so four corpses is good evidence.

        • nadyvina

          mmmm that´s right…at the beggining I doubt about the holy guards help…but at time passes I just assumed that even if they don´t know the real sources the HG would be still considered as tools in Haochen posession just like a spiritual stove or something like that…
