Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 447

Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 447: Starlight Divine Beast, Divine Snail of Sun and Moon (I)

The large snail turned back, and naturally, all that was left in the sight of the group was that magnificent shell. Long Haochen’s both hands were raised, stopping his mates from approaching the snail.

The Forest Boa King’s treasure ended up to be a snail. That was truly quite unexpected, especially when its attribute wasn’t light. In some sense, he belonged to the life attribute type, mixed with some other heterogeneous attributes. And because of living in these swamps, its body also carried poison attribute.

The snail before their eyes was however of light attribute. From its nervous looks, it couldn’t be a good friend of that Forest Boa King, much less a lover.

Then, there was only one possibility. It was an enemy of the Forest Boa King, or rather an object of desire in his eyes. But this snail had been living well for so long. Killing the Forest Boa King had taken Andromalius several months, which also proved that this large snail was a magical beast of the ninth step that had no issue surviving here for several months. From this, its level of threat goes without saying. For this reason, even if this snail was of the same light element as Long Haochen, there was no way he could let the others take the risk to approach it.

“Eleventh Holy Guard, do you recognize this magical beast?” Long Haochen turned

The blue flames in the eyes of the Eleventh Holy Guard, who just joined Long Haochen’s side, starting to pulse as he pondered. Something seemed to have come to his mind, but he didn’t seem so certain.

“Don’t worry, it’s okay even if it’s just a guess.” Long Haochen tried to encourage him. In these lands of death, they had been encountering extinct Forest Boas and other antique magical beasts such as Saw Skates. This large snail was very possibly another kind of magical beast from ancient times, but no one had any information about it, and thus didn’t dare rashly approach it.

The Eleventh Holy Guard nodded lightly, giving the reply, “From its aura, that’s certainly a kind of ancient magical beast. It should be a starlight divine beast, but I don’t know much about them. Ninth may know a bit about it.”

Hearing his respectful tone towards the Ninth Holy Guard, Long Haochen seemed moved, “Eleventh, why is it that although you are fellow holy guards, the three of you so respectful towards Ninth? It’s as if you didn’t have the same status.”

The Eleventh Holy Guard was startled, but still gave a reply to Long Haochen’s interrogation, “Our status is not the same. Master only had nine holy guards following him for a long time, all of whom were elites from their generation, defeated in combat by Master. The Tenth, Twelfth, and I are servants accepted by him. Compared to the Ninth Holy Guard, we differ a lot, be it in strength or knowledge.”

Long Haochen had a flash of understanding, So things were actually like that! The Ninth Holy Guard was indeed a lot stronger than the other three holy guards. At the same time, he started to become even more expectant regarding the Tower of Eternity. With the help they had from these four great holy guards, the strength of their team as a whole almost doubled. If it is possible for him to get the addition of the whole twelve holy guards, what kind of sight will that be? At that time, he will be bound to have reached the ninth step. If it is the same for the holy guards, then even average demon gods would be no issue for them.

However, Long Haochen also thought back about Ye Xiaolei’s words to him. That no matter what, he couldn’t enter the last floor of the Tower of Eternity. Otherwise, he would get controlled by the evil degenerations of the Slumbering Calamity Elux.

“Please bring Ninth Holy Guard here, so that we can see whether he knows this magical beast.” Now was clearly not the time to ponder about the Tower of Eternity. Long Haochen had instead immediately called the Ninth Holy Guard here, to have a look at whether he had an idea of what kind of magical beast that snail could be.

Overall, the cave wasn’t very deep. A little while later, the Ninth Holy Guard arrived with loud steps at Long Haochen’s side. But he suddenly became stiff upon seeing that large snail, and even the soul of powerhouse pulsing in his eyes seemed to have frozen.

Long Haochen didn’t interrupt him. Strength aside, it seemed that the other three holy guards preserved only their feelings and knowledge, with some of their battle instincts and memories. But the Ninth Holy Guard seemed to have a real soul of his own. For instance, when seeing Cai’er, the respect in his behaviour seemed even more apparent than for Long Haochen.

After quite a while, the Ninth Holy Guard seemed to be coming back to his normal state, murmuring, “This is a starlight divine beast, from the peaceful era. A Divine Snail of Sun and Moon.”

Hearing about his familiarity towards this kind of magical beast, Long Haochen’s spirits rose, “What kind of magical beast is a Divine Snail of Sun and Moon?”

The Ninth Holy Guard replied, “Even during the ancient times, their rarity exceeded even that of dragons. To speak about the Divine Snails of Sun and Moon, I have to mention the starlight magical beasts first. They are a kind of extremely powerful magical beasts from these times, all of whom are of light attribute. Any types of magical beast may give birth to a starlight divine beast. And each one of them are existences at the tenth rank. They are standing as representative for light, and their worth is really enormous. Every time a starlight magical beast appears, various races will be bound to attack it from all sides, like when humans run across a divine tool. There is no race that doesn’t harbour a desire for them.”

“Consequently, the starlight magical beasts are unable to reproduce, and their numbers kept lessening with time, until they finally went extinct, and none ever appeared.”

“What are the benefits that starlight magical beasts can bring?” Long Haochen asked with curiosity.

The Ninth Holy Guard replied heavily, “I can give you a simple example so that you understand. In the past, when master built the Tower of Eternity, he used in its core three magical nucleus of starlight divine beasts. And up till now, the Tower of Eternity is still as glorious. This is precisely because of the existence of these three nucleus, making the Tower of Eternity a supra divine tool!”

“A supra divine tool?” Long Haochen heard yet another brand new word.

The Ninth Holy Guard explained, “A so called supra divine tool is an item like that pillar we just destroyed. However, that pillar seemed to be still not at the rank of supra divine tool, only at its fledgling stage. But that pillar seems to be just the part of a kind of ultra divine weapon of even greater terror than a supra divine tool. We have never seen something like that before, at the very least in the knowledge of our master, it doesn’t exist. In this world, we have come to scour some information regarding ultra divine tools, but in fact, there are not many records about them, even in any ancient books from our world. ”

At the side, Lin Xin couldn’t help but ask, “Then, how can you be certain that this divine god pillar is part of an ultra divine tool?”

The Ninth Holy Guard replied, “From its aura. Although its might is far beyond compare with ordinary weapons, at the time it was destroyed, it let out the aura from an ultra divine weapon. This kind of terrifying aura is tenfolds more powerful than the Tower of Eternity. Such an existence cannot be explained unless calling it an ultra divine tool.”

Long Haochen nodded lightly, as if understanding the perilous situation they were in. Divine tool, supra divine tool and ultra divine tool. That was the first time he was hearing of this categorization for divine tools. But no matter what, there was no doubt about their existence. Wasn’t the Tower of Eternity a supra divine tool, that never missed to put them in awe with its mysteries? And it was even more probable for the seventy-two demon god pillars to be part of an ultra divine tool. So it was no wonder that over the past six thousand years, no human was able to destroy one. But since things were so, how is it that Haoyue was able to?

For a moment, Long Haochen’s mind seemed to be thrown in disorder. It was as if he came to a guess, but without anything to confirm or prove his thoughts. Moreover, his hypothesis wasn’t complete either, and still full of gaps.

The Ninth Holy Guard continued, “Starlight divine beast were for some time, also existences of same grade. And among the divine tools that are inherited from ancient times, at least nine out of ten among the ones that have light attribute, are related to starlight divine beasts. The overwhelming majority of the starlight divine beasts have great battle capabilities, so killing them to gain benefits from their resources is bound to require a huge cost. And among all the starlight divine beasts types, the hardest one to deal with is of an extraordinary kind. Because it doesn’t have any offensive strength of itself, it cannot wound any of its enemies, and would simply flee upon exhaustion of the enemy. The starlight divine snail before our eyes is this kind of starlight divine beast, a formidable magical beast close to unparalleled in defense.”

And because it cannot attack, among starlight divine beasts, it is known as a peaceful one.

Han Yu raised the question, “It cannot attack? Then couldn’t we capture it, and then think of a way to handle it? It should sooner or later show a gap.”

The Ninth Holy Guard shook his head, replying, “The defense of a Snail of Sun and Moon is the reason why it is praised as an everlasting remnant. Not only blocking the overwhelming majority of the attacks, it can also negate any negative effects. In the history of the ancient times, a Snail of Sun and Moon is said to have appeared three times, but there was only one time it was slain. That time, it encountered a supra divine tool specializing in attack, and wasn’t able to use its peak defense from the beginning of the battle, since attacked by surprise. And that was the only time a Snail of Sun and Moon died.

And after eating the meat of that Divine Snail of Sun and Moon, that almighty one ruled over the world for a thousand year. That was a dragon kin, who became a Gigantic Divine Dragon upon eating the Divine Snail of Sun and Moon. But do you know how his rule eventually ended?

      Lol, Okay now every time they talk about the Sun and Moon Snail I am going to mentally see that. What is kind of funny to me is when I saw that I was just thinking to myself the place he is off to is to get revenge on the French. “You have eaten my brethren…. Lets see how you like being eaten….!”

    • nadyvina

      hahaha it reminds me of a movie (wich I just watched the thriler, I think it was a snail xD)

  • Belkar

    Thank you!

  • sergioGM

    thanks 🙂

  • Kaarme

    It would be cool if they could take this Divine Snail of Sun and Moon with them, but logically they should be fleeing the demon lands as fast as possible after destroying the pillar. If they took the snail with them, they would unfortunately be travelling at a snail’s pace.

  • Marshal Filho

    I am new, the chapters are posted with a definite or random date

    • Random, 2-4 days per chapter
      Sponsored chapters are a thing and you only pray that they happen

      • Jonathan Hurd

        Usually 2-3 days for regular. The one before this being four was because of New Years causing business and hang overs.

        Also just to clear some potential confusion on how the Sponsored chapters work…

        So after a chapter is sponsored Toto will try and release the Regular one as soon as possible. Note the chapter will be regular if a day or more has passed before the chapter was sponsored. If he just released a Regular chapter then the next one will be Sponsored.

        The day after the regular one is released the Sponsored one will be released.

        After all the Sponsored chapters are released then the countdown for Regular chapters will start up again.

        EX: If someone was kind enough to donate money to get us three Sponsored Chapters. Then after the current regular chapter is released. For three days Toto would try and release a chapter a day. There would however be no regular chapters since the counter has not yet started.

        I know this sounds a bit complex, but since a lot of people get confused I think its best to make it clear at the beginning. I have to admit I personally also wondered if the regular chapters counter kept going during sponsored too.

  • Kilimandaros

    “The Tenth Holy Guard nodded lightly, giving the reply” should be Eleventh.

  • MangoGuy

    I see…so,the snail is just standing and listening the exposition?

  • GuyWitTheFace

    Thank You

  • Zeth

    Thank you very much Totobro!

  • James Evans

    Tbh, that divine tool naming sense….
    What’s next, Super Kami Guru?

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • nadyvina

    “For a moment, Long Haochen’s mind seemed to be thrown in disorder. It was as if he came to a guess, but without anything to confirm or prove his thoughts. Moreover, his hypothesis wasn’t complete either, and still full of gaps.” that is how felt, after reading this chapter…like a gigantic “ahhhhhhh…+realized something but I don´t know how to explain”

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Lol, I know right? I’m thinking a Contract with LHC is becoming more likely. Hao Yue will be LHC’s Ultra Divine Tool level attacker and the Snail will be his Ultra Divine Tool level Defender, :D.

      • nadyvina

        Yes!! that´s one of the things but now I´m even more interested in the ultra divine weapon that the DGP are! well now with the destruction of one of them how it will go, I was thinking about if it could assemble, can we get to see it even if one part has been destroyed (well since it´s the last DP maybe it is not an impressindible part).

        Now we have a third Scion of Light! What happened back then in Haoyue´s world? tehehe Now I´m really curious, I still have to put in order my ideas. But I´m worried, the are not doing anything with DGP remnants???!!! Not even a mention of pick them or not??

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Part of the remnants did seem to disperse upon the explosion that was its destruction. However considering how much of a Miser Has Drugs Bro is I feel like giving up the remaining pieces is a low chance.

          I do also want to see what the DGP’s combined could pull off. I think just having lost the last one will not stop the whole things construction. It will probably just lower the output a tiny bit.

          Still it is interesting seeing how the Pillars and an Ultra Divine Tool and Hao Yue inspires fear even within those… What the hell kind of level does that mean Hao Yue has reached, lol.

          • nadyvina

            he still has a long way to go until having all his powers back, but he won´t have more heads, that was said some chapters ago when he said he now is in his complete form…

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I”m not really sure if they ever said he won’t have more heads. From what I remember they said he is now in complete form. Basically he has fully grown up. They did mention that he has an Ultimate Form though. It seems to get to that form it will take a bigger leap than just cultivating energy and will have more drastic changes for Hao Yue.

            I find the constant symbols of 9 heads to be a pretty strong foreshadow that it will probably come about at the end. Considering also that Hao Yue is currently only 7th step and every time he has gone up a step it has gotten him more heads and elements I feel 8th and 9th Step are going to probably bring some pretty drastic changes.

            I do have to admit that the author has a tendency to wait on actualizing things he foreshadows, but considering how many times it has been pointed out I highly doubt he wouldn’t actualize the heads thing.

          • nadyvina

            ohhh I just assumed that this ultimate form would be about his powers…xD

          • Jonathan Hurd

            The way I understand the Ultimate Form currently is unlike what happened before this is less of Hao Yue just growing up and this will be more him turning into a whole new being. I feel like the final form of Hao Yue will probably be 9 headed, but that is just my guess.

          • Yato_Delivery_Servic3

            Or maybe each head gets dual elements?

          • Jonathan Hurd

            I thought about that one too. Currently Hao Yue has Light, Fire, Water, Wind, and Poison. One of my original thoughts was that maybe four of his five heads would develop their opposite.

            My guess was that since he started as Darkness element Light might be the one left out from being dual. Problem was then he got Water so that theory kind of left, and then Poison got thrown in so now not sure what the dual elements would be like.

      • Jhay Belandres

        Hao Yue is the final boss, the strongest existence in the universe. LHC and the DGE will join hands to kill him. And by the way DGE is LHCs grandpa. LHC mother is DGE daughter.

        • nadyvina

          OMG! I just hope this is not a too bad spoiler…but I thought something like that too, it´s just that I can´t accept it, so I just want there to be another supreme existence that controls that ultra divine tool that are the DGP. If you just couldn´t bear with Jonathan and me doing a lot of fuss about our theories, so you told us the true, please let us find it at the end, if that is not the case, please allow us to read your theories, because this one is really good, and I´ve thought about it too, but I felt that Haochen changed his feeling after meeting Haochen; and that one LHC´s mother being DGE being his daughter is not bad idea afterall just one of his kind can take his DGP. right? xD

          • Roctis Kravei

            What Jhay Belandres sadly wasn’t a theory though, it was all real. I checked the raws :'(

          • nadyvina

            really???? are you kidding me? why did you have to meddle in this, did you read that we practically begged for NO SPOILERS??????! damishhh god!

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Ditto of what nadyvina said about please no spoilers if you have read ahead. If it is a theory then that is fine I would just probably suggest writing it in a less certain fashion. Example is saying “I think…” or “I believe…” before the theory.

          The theory of Hao Yue being final boss has been batted around a few times before now as well. For me, unless he finds a way to break his Blood Pact with LHC, that he initialized mind you, it kind of seems like the most pointless final boss battle for him. If LHC fought him and wins…. Hao Yue dies. If LHC fights him and loses… they both die. There doesn’t really seem to be any kind of win condition in it for Hao Yue.

          Knowing LHC’s character and Hao Yue’s thus far I find LHC rejecting Hao Yue to be pretty unlikely. LHC already stated he will always consider Hao Yue his family and little brother. Both sides have risked their lives for each other. So unless there is a good reason why they would be forced to face each other. I am more than willing to let the final boss be something else.

          A potential Scenario I could think of is Hao Yue is being controlled by something and he begs LHC to stop him. That at least would make some sense to me for why we would have Hao Yue versus LHC battle. I do feel though if there was someone controlling him it would more likely be a final battle against that thing rather than Hao Yue.

          On LHC’s Mom personally I am still favoring her being a Human lover of the DGE. Yue Ye did mention that her father the Moon Demon God and even the DGE has hundred of concubines including quite a few human ones. LHC’s mom also seems to lack the characteristics that we have seen from the human form Devil Dragons since her hair and pupils are blue instead of black.

          There is a possibility she might be a half demon like Yue Ye, but then considering how important the Devil Dragon blood line is, especially the DGE’s, and how infrequently they can actually reproduce. I have to wonder what would inspire the DGE to have a non pure bred Devil Dragon kid. The politics on this case seem pretty stringent like with how Ah’Bao had to go through a bunch of red tape and beg his dad to let him marry Yue Ye. If his dad had done a similar thing and had a kid with a non Devil Dragon then I think it would of been less of an issue.

          The biggest headache I get when figuring out the DGE’s kids is the ages. We know Yue Ye is in her early twenties, but she is half demon/half human so her aging is still pretty mysterious. Devil Dragons apparently have a life span of around 10k years. 7k being their prime. From a previous chapter they mentioned that for Devil Dragons they are only fertile around every 1k years. So if that is true that would mean Ah’Bao and his sister are at least 1k years apart from each other, but are still considered to both be in the Younger generation… Honestly I have no clue how old Ah’Bao is and that is greatly screwing with my math.

          The reason ages thing matters is that if the DGE can’t have a kid except once every thousand years then that means either LHC’s mom is over 1k years old or Ah’Bao is if both of them are the DGE’s kids. LHC’s mom however looks and behaves like an adult in my books while Ah’Bao seems to be at least outwardly physically younger… That is also not even trying to figure out where Ah’Bao’s sister comes in on the birthing order… Could potentially force LHC’s mom to be over 2k years old and Ah’Bao a thousand…. Yet Ah’Bao and the sister are compared in the same generation…?

          A possibility that I just remembered is Twins. If Ah’Bao and his sister were actually born as twins then it isn’t unfair to have them both lumped together in the Younger Generation…

  • Marshal Filho

    This site is good, but why do you think it’s only for this novel?

    • Jonathan Hurd

      From my knowledge Toto runs it himself and he is currently just translating SYWZ so that is why the site only runs this novel. There was discussion before about if Toto would want to join Wuxiaworld, but he likes to work at his own pace so that is why he isn’t a part of any translating groups.

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • Anto Wibowo

    Thank you for the chapter!

  • Jonathan Hurd

    The question that I want to ask now is since we have found out Divine Tool’s have levels. What level are the Divine Thrones at. From what the 9th Holy Guard said I highly doubt they themselves are Ultra Divine Tools, but they are probably at least at the Supra level. It would be pretty interesting if they can also attune their energy like the DG pillars to increase their force to. So many things to look forward to….

    I also want to know what level the Eternal Melody is actually ranked at as well. It seems to be definitively linked to the Tower of Eternity and considering all the functions it has I wonder if it by itself is Supra.

  • ZaX

    That snail is effectively the ultimate shield if used right. Thanks for the chapter
