Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 444

Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 444: Secret of the Aria of the Goddess of Light (I)

Cut in two in one swing. This description was perfectly fitting for the scene.
When he was close to his peak state with the help of the Demonic Collapse Great Spell, Andromalius was immediately sliced in two by the Aria of the Goddess of Light. Neither his skills nor body managed to stand in front of the powerful attack of the Aria of the Goddess of Light.
It was an instant kill. Long Haochen managed to kill the enemy instantly. But how did he accomplish that? How did he get so strong all of a sudden?
Only Long Haochen completely understood how this happened. At this moment, his thoughts couldn’t help but go back to the time in the Warrior Temple, when he delivered back the sword intent in the Aria of the Goddess of Light.
The head of the Warrior Temple, War Deity Qiu Yonghao had a short one to one with him, during which he told him a secret. This secret had been kept buried in Long Haochen’s chest ever since then.
At that time, Qiu Yonghao told him that the Aria of the Goddess of Light had a secret. That on it existed a powerful seal, branded originally by the Holy Sword Wielder Ye Wushang before he left the world, for the sake of concealing the real might of the Aria of the Goddess of Light. This was to avoid accidentally injuring the younger generations. Qiu Yonghao also told him that to get rid of this seal and unleash the true power of the Aria of the Goddess of Light, the wielder’s cultivation would at least need to reach the eighth step. By causing an overdraft in conjunction with power storage, it could barely be tried at the seventh step.
Afterwards, Qiu Yonghao taught Long Haochen the method to remove the seal. Qiu Yonghao could be called the former retainer of the Holy Sword Wielder Qiu Yonghao, and also the only person aware of this method in the whole continent. The sincerity Long Haochen had when coming to deliver back its sword intent moved him and led him to reveal this secret in the end. That was because, he also wanted to see the birth of a new godly holy sword wielder, able to inherit of Ye Wushang’s legacy.
Just a moment ago, Long Haochen drew support from Storing Power to help raise his spiritual energy to its peak, and managed for the first time to remove the seal of the Aria of the Goddess of Light, then use the real might of this divine sword for the very first time. As for Andromalius, he became the first offering to the godly sword.
The reason for Long Haochen to have done this was very simple. He simply didn’t want to give Andromalius any opportunity to counterattack, having learned enough from the Forest Boa King. For this reason, he used his most powerful attack to thoroughly crush the Devil Snake God, and completely rid of his soul and life, and obliterate him through the godly holy sword.
A dark red light started to glow on Andromalius’ corpse, flying back outside. This occurrence was just too sudden, even surpassing the Tenth Holy Guard in speed.
One could vaguely see that this was a crown, a dark red crown that was dripping with dark red blood.
When Long Haochen’s group killed the successor to a demon god, they obtained an Inheritance Crown. But the aura coming out of this Demon God Crown was a lot more powerful than that time. Obviously, it was trying escape and merge with Andromalius’ demon god pillar. This way, many years later, a new Devil Snake Demon God would reappear and command the Devil Snakes.
Long Haochen didn’t make it in time to stop it, as the others including the two Holy Guards were still in shock because of Long Haochen’s earth shattering attack. When they recovered from the shock, that dark red crown was already floating past them.
Because Yating helped Long Haochen to display the full might of the Aria of the Goddess of Light, she went into a weakened state and was unable to even use the Pull Ability of the Saint Spiritual Stove. In his state of great shock, Long Haochen found himself unable to stop it.
But right at this moment, rapacious aggressor appeared suddenly in the only road of that dark red crown. This demon god crown was indeed really fast, to the extent that even avoiding it was impossible, but it just ended up being entirely swallowed.
With a thin golden glow, to everyone’s shock, the one who swallowed the demon god crown was exactly Little Light, one of Haoyue’s five heads.
Little Light’s pair of golden eyes were glinting, and vaguely, his body started to ripple with purple intent. Everyone felt that the fluctuations of spiritual energy on his body were starting to twist, before returning to normal, as if nothing happened.
Lin Xin’s response was the fastest. He was not only has-drug-bro, but also a scrooge beyond scrooges. The first thing he did was to run over and attempt to ask Haoyue, “Dear Haoyue, can you please spit it out?”
Little Light unhappily glared at him, and shook his head with pride. It seemed to be saying, Want me to split out something I just ate? You’re dreaming!
“Don’t be like that, Dear Haoyue! That’s a demon god crown! If this thing is brought back to the Alliance, we could exchange it for quite a lot of Legendary Equipment, and even one or two Epic Equipments would be possible! How can you keep everything for yourself,”
As for Lin Xin’s pained appearance, Little Light acted as if he didn’t see it at all and just turned back his head. At the very moment, the Ninth Holy Guard and the Eleventh Holy Guard outside were also coming back.
Wang Yuanyuan let out a laugh, “Let it be, has-drug-bro. Can you stop being so greedy? Having Haoyue eat it is a lot better than letting it go away. I can’t believe that this is for real, we actually really killed a demon god! This would really be unbelievable to anyone.”
She wasn’t the only one to find that unbelievable. Even Long Haochen who delivered the last blow felt like he was in a dream.
They really succeeded, in killing the Snake Devil God Andromalius. Although he was no more but the last of the seventy-two demon gods, he still brought the group a total of over 500,000 contribution points! If they could kill one a bit above in the ranking, the reward would surpass one million points.
A golden light started to glow on Long Haochen’s chest, and Chen Ying’er and Cai’er were finally summoned. It was just that the two of them didn’t look so good.
“What happened to you?” Chen Ying’er looked stunned at the sight of Long Haochen who was borrowing support from Han Yu’s arm, and Cai’er was pouting with an unsatisfied expression. Since the others were summoned by Long Haochen for such a long time, they were evidently thrown in a battle, but she wasn’t summoned until now.
With difficulty, Long Haochen smiled to her, “It’s nothing, I’m just feeling a bit weak. I just need to get some rest.”
A golden glow was spouted out from Little Light’s mouth, enveloping Long Haochen, helping him to recover some spiritual energy.
After Haoyue evolved to the level of getting five heads, his support wasn’t pertained to only the aspect of spiritual energy, but even his vitality and overflowing latent capabilities helped him recover. For this reason, after receiving Little Light’s support, Long Haochen’s face immediately looked a lot better.
Seeing the great amount of corpses of Devil Snakes afar, Chen Ying’er and Cai’er were stupefied.
Chen Ying’er had a doubtful look as she inquired, “Don’t tell me the battle is already over? Oh my god! Is that a demon god pillar? And what about the Devil Snake Demon God Andromalius? Did he escape?”
With a laugh, “Escaped? Just where do you think he would flee? He’s right there, though only mincemeat is left of him. Still, that’s all good things! I’ve gotta pack it all later.”
Wang Yuanyuan blurted out without reservation, “Has-drug-bro, won’t you stop showing more and more arrogance?”
Hearing that the Snake Devil Demon God died, Cai’er was still better off, since she was after all amnesic, but Chen Ying’er stood dumbstruck, “Are you saying that the Devil Snake Demon God was killed by you? My god! How is that even possible?”
A golden glow of light was emitted by Han Yu’s body, enveloping everyone inside. That was the power of the Spiritual Stove of Blessings of Light, tremendously accelerating the recovery of spiritual energy of everyone inside its range. Even the aftereffects of the Spiritual Stove of Purple Godly Thunder affecting Sima Xian started to lessen.
Long Haochen let out a smile, “Nothing is impossible, didn’t we just succeed? Although luck played out a large part, we still succeed. And with this we are done with all the missions we have taken this time.”
At this point, he started clearly to show some pride. But after looking at Cai’er, his joy lessened by much. Right, no matter how much gains they had this time, compared to Cai’er’s memories, it was not even worth mentioning. If he had the choice, he would have rather not chosen to make this trip in demon territory, so that Cai’er wouldn’t have ended up in this state.
“You’re still not trusting me!” Cai’er showed a grumpy side, but said no more than that, because of seeing the sad look on Long Haochen’s face, containing some lament. For some reason, every time she saw Long Haochen like that, the depressed feelings in her heart disappeared involuntarily, as she felt stuck in her throat.
The others shut their mouths unconsciously. In this strange atmosphere, they recovered while bathed in the Blessings of Light.
Very rapidly, everyone outside of Long Haochen who went largely beyond his limits and Sima Xian who was suffering from the side effects recovered, back to their peak. Even the four holy guards were no exception, and from that, the great might of the Spiritual Stove of Light Blessings could be seen.
Long Haochen declared, “Time to sweep through the battlefield everyone.”, and took the lead to head for the corpse of the Forest Boa King.
In the battlefield, the Forest Boa King aside, there were corpses of six or seven ordinary Forest Boas . After the extermination of the Devil Snakes, the Forest Boas that were able to get away were really few. But this only inconvenienced Long Haochen’s group.
Long Haochen carefully recovered the corpse of the Forest Boa King in his Eternal Melody. He could still feel the heat emitted by the Eternal Melody, visibly absorbing the soul power lingering in this battlefield.
Devil Snake elites fare quite high in price, to say nothing of the magical crystals they have. The storage capacity of Long Haochen’s Eternal Melody being close to unlimited, it took a moment for them to bring everything recoverable here, making the battlefield a lot cleaner.

    Thanks for the chapter Toto.

    Come on guys there is the DG Pillar completely unprotected in front of you… DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! I believe in you!

    • Erik de Graaff

      they will do something with it in the next chapters, they destroy it or bring it with them

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I doubt they can bring it with them. From what the DGS’s said the Pillar will stop being vulnerable after a period of a few hours. I am not sure if that means that it will teleport to its allies, but if that is true then taking the Pillar with them when it can’t be hurt would just make them a ridiculously big target. Also I don’t know how they would hide the pillar while transporting it since it seems to be quite tall.

        I want them to destroy it so much. I think LHC might be able to pull it off if hes given a little more recovery time and fuses with Hao Yue. Barring that Sima might be able to do it if he all out attacks since he does have probably the highest destructive power of the team with Cai’er being a bit indisposed. The completely fresh Cai’er could probably destroy it since she is still at full power currently I really hope LHC would be willing to let her do it.

        • Erik de Graaff

          they were talking about destroying a pillar in a earlier chapter with the strongest team that the humans have.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            So relooked up the specifics from chapter 210…

            “To destroy a demon god pillar, the first premise is to have enough power to destroy these formidable weapons, and the second to act before half an hour passes after the demon god’s death, for it to be possible.”

            “And even to destroy the weakest demon god pillar, you will need at the very least a piece of epic tier equipment.”

            So relooked at the Wiki. Legendary is one step below Epic. So I think the fully released Aria of the Goddess of Light or Cai’er’s Scythe of Samsara are probably the only two weapons that can break the 72nd DG pillar right now.

          • Erik de Graaff

            its possible but its going to be hard
            lets hope they can do it so that they become the only one that destroyed a pillar

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Seems like there are not going to be many more opportunities as good as this one, imo. Considering also that Cai’er can do one free use of her Scythe I would be amazed if they don’t try it.

            Alternatively an interesting thing could be trying to put the Pillar into the Tower of Eternity and trying to break it with that, hehe.

          • Maracas

            demon god emperor can break dimension wall, so if the tower is in the same world as lc and his friends, i dont see a reason demon emperor wont be able to break dimension and pick the tower and pillar (because i seriously doubt he doesnt have a tracking spell on every pillar)

            the other way is an issue as well, can the pillar teleport back to the demon side?

            the only way to completely stop the pillar should be sending it to haoyue’s world (so far plot shows is close to impossible to move between worlds, the demon clan should have make something incredible nefarious to be able to move to lc’s world, but i seriously doubt they can go back)… or haoyue eats all pillar’s energy and make it a simple big chunk of metal…

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I mainly offered the taking it to the Tower of Eternity to use the Towers defense mechanisms to try and break it. That situation would amuse the crap out of me, but I highly doubt that can or will ever happen.

            From what the DGS’s said the Pillar becomes unbreakable after 30 minutes of the DG’s death. They never really said why that is. Whether the Pillar will teleport back to some safe spot or lock itself that is just the information I am working with currently.

            If they can’t affect it after 30 minutes from now then I see no reason to try and transport it. I highly doubt the Pillar itself would let itself be teleported. Hao Yue’s teleportation to his home world only takes LHC and Hao Yue, but no one else. So the only real teleportation they have for it would be to the Tower of Eternity.

            If they were going to throw it to Hao Yue’s place it would have to start there and to me leaving it in the tower is a safer place than leaving it in Hao Yue’s Home World with all the Dark attribute Skeletons to potentially use it. The thing is made of pure Darkness element and Elux’s Tower completely rejects that so keeping it there is probably also impossible much less taking it there.

          • Kaarme

            A good point. It would probably weaken the tower from the inside. I’m not sure DGE could teleport into the tower following the pillar, but it would be bad enough the emperor would possibly learn something about the tower in the first place. It’s easily Haochen’s biggest and most difficult secret.

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I feel like if the DGE used the connection between the Pillars he could probably lock onto the Tower and then tear a hole to get to it since he pulled off something similar in the Illusory Paradise.

            Now it would be exhausting as hell for him to do so, but I can’t really think of many advantages of exposing the Towers existence like that. It would also knock LHC up another few rungs on the must kill list so keeping that secret is probably in his best interest, lol.

  • Oddmoonlight

    Is there an alert function that the pillar contain which tells the others that snakey is dead? Will the emperor use spacial wormhole to get there to prevent the destruction of it?

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I am just guessing here, but I feel that the DG’s have some sort of connection with each other through the pillars. So they can probably feel Andromalius’ death. I doubt the DGE can just teleport to his location though for various reasons. One would be coordinates. Considering how out in the boonies Andromalius is and also that he died in the middle of the swamp of death. Locking on to the corpse and teleporting to it seems highly unlikely.

      Another reason is that the DGE doesn’t seem to have spatial attribute. Even if he does I don’t think you can limitlessly teleport any distance. We saw even with the Saw Skate King that he had an effective range on his teleporting. Now the Saw Skate King isn’t a DG, but he is still a amazingly strong 10th Rank Beast. So I would assume even if being a DG with pillar could extend the range I highly doubt it would be enough to just go between Provinces instantly.

      I also kind of doubt the DGE can personally go since he has his own responsibilities and things he has to keep in check. If he goes to some place so far away personally that takes away the pressure he casts and would open up the DGS’s and others to potentially surprise attack and kill another DG.

      The last problem I would say is that the Snake DG’s death is too sudden. He is no where close to the Humans and enemy lines. No one expected him to die and so it will take probably quite a while to organize troops to send to investigate. Especially when he died in such a harsh environment. Add to that he has been being pretty hush hush about what he has been doing since he wanted to keep the benefits in the swamp to himself… I think LHC and Co will probably not be jumped any time soon by another DG here.

      • Oddmoonlight

        You make a very convincing argument.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Thank you, 😀

    Thank you Totobro!

  • sergioGM

    thanks 😀

  • nadyvina

    mmm I am kind of worried because they aren´t doing anything about the DGP…I wonder if it has some kind of GPS function…haha xD too bad Cai´er didn´t reconver her memories yet…that really upset me…uhhhhhh right now I don´t know if I like her more or Xun´er from BTTH hahaha

    • Jonathan Hurd

      If they don’t take this shot then I am going to be amazingly sad. I mean Cai’er has shown she can do some pretty serious attacks and the DGP is not going to attack back. Let her have at it or alternatively. LHC fuses with Hao Yue. Release the Aria of the Goddess of Light as an 8th stepper and do it like that. Some attempt has to be made its sitting there with absolutely no chance of reinforcement.

      For best girl between Xun’er and Cai’er… Honestly I think I like Cai’er a little more. Cai’er has had more development for me and I kind of like her yandereish personality. Xun’er is pretty damn cute though and I like her loyalty to Xiao Yan slot.

      • nadyvina

        mmm for me is really dificult…but it is really true that she has more development, and about her yandereish hahah she would even kill Haochen and then think “why I did that…it was not his fault afterall, I will never forgive myself”; but Xun´er is really strong, in all aspect.

  • MangoGuy

    she doesnt remember……

  • Alex Hirschel

    I like the new Cai’er because she can see life in a fresh light, Even though we kind of need the old her. If and when she remembers she will have seen the world in a new perspective. If she wants to remember she will have to remember her years of torment and crush these days of “innocence.” (Even though they are killing demons is still considered innocent) Poor Haochen. 😛 Let Cai’er have days of peace without a harsh past or be willing to remember her burden and return to being the woman Hoachen loves. Either way it will be painful for both Cal’er and Haochen. 🙁

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I do feel bad that most of the memories Cai’er is trying to recover are effectively torture, but there are definitely plenty of nice ones mixed in. Mainly those involving LHC. I think also not knowing what life used to be like and what has happened before is a kind of torture in itself. She knows LHC loves her and that the whole team is friendly, but she can’t really remember why. That has got to weigh on her mind. Remembering will hurt, but I think not remembering overall hurts more and would leave her feeling empty and lost.

      I do hope that she is maybe able to take a fresh look at things after she gets her memories back that would be a nice little silver lining to this experience. It would also make the damn amnesia not completely freaking pointless >.>.

  • ZaX

    Eternal melody near infinite storage ability is pretty damn useful. Thanks for the chapter

    @totobro For dome reason whenever I try go to your site it says the domain has expired. Is this temporary? Is it just me or is this an issue?
