Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 155


Chapter 155: Long Haochen’s Demon Hunt Squad (II)

In this instant, the superiority of a Guardian Knight in comparison to an agressive Retribution Knight came out. And Long Haochen’s greatest advantage lay within his Saint Spiritual Stove. In terms of ranking, the Saint Spiritual Stove was far from the Starsea Stove. It didn’t hold offensive capabilities, but its power of attraction was extremely important in regards to the security of a Demon Hunt Squad.

“Next, the formation of the first Demon Hunt Squad is about to take place.

Long Haochen, turn around toward the direction of the roulette. For the time being, the squad led by you will be called Demon Hunt Squad #1.”

“Yes.” Today, Long Haochen seemed particularly sincere. After respectfully answering with a word, he headed to the roulette before standing below.

Specialized staff members were carrying out some tasks, as ten names appeared on the roulette.

Han Qian said, “First rotation, the warrior of this team will be chosen.” A staff member handed over a pearl faintly shining of scarlet to Long Haochen.

Before him, the roulette started to rotate intensely, the ten names instantly disappearing from sight. Long Haochen could then only see a ring of light and nothing more.

Under the staff member’s hinting, Long Haochen took the scarlet pearl in his hand, and placed it on the roulette. As he let his finger loose, suddenly, that scarlet pearl fell into the roulette, spinning at great speed.

A violent, sharp, and clear shooting sound resounded. That concentrated sound of collisions affected all the competitors on stage. In particular, those ten warriors were especially tense.

The Team Forming Roulette looked different than before. In case one was chosen, he would usually be a part of their assigned team, unless they renounced their status as a Demon Hunt Squad member. However, when renouncing after the roulette’s designation, one would not be permitted to participate in later Demon Hunt Selections. In the Demon Hunt Selection’s context, this rule was known as the ‘authority of the roulette’.

The rotating speed gradually decreased, and the ten names on the roulette likewise became more distinct.

The secondary hall masters of the Six Great Temples stared at the roulette. At this moment, no one would possibly dare play tricks to try to disturb the fairness of the roulette, which would immediately incur the wrath of these powerhouses at the peak of the eighth step.

At last, the speed of the roulette decreased enough to enable one to distinguish the crimson-colored ball, which was slowly bouncing up, unceasingly sweeping past one name after another. Ultimately, it went still.

It had stopped completely.

Having clearly seen the name, Long Haochen opened his eyes wide. Slightly startled, he immediately became cheerful. This was because his luck was really not bad: he had just chosen an outstanding warrior.

“Demon Hunt Squad #1, warrior, Wang Yuanyuan, step forward.” Han Qian announced the name that appeared on the roulette.

At first, the warrior holding her huge shield, sitting on the second row, looked distracted, but she immediately walked forward in great delight. It looks that my luck is pretty good!

Seeing Wang Yuanyuang walking forward with big strides, and under the hint of Han Qian, LHC went up to welcome her. Extending his hand, he looked at her and declared, “Welcome, new member.”

Wang Yuanyuan restrained herself from showing her sheer delight too blatantly and placed her own hand on his, declaring, “Last time, you were lucky and won against me. In the future, if we have the occasion, I look forward to exchanging pointers with you.”

Long Haochen chuckled and replied, “Alright!”

Wang Yuanyuan placed her Gigantic Divine Soul Shield down beside Lin Xin, still restraining her smiling face from displaying her intense pleasure. Although she was a warrior, she was not skilled with defense. Long Haochen, on the other hand, was a knight with both specializations of a Guardian and Retribution Knight, and furthermore, had a Saint Spiritual Stove, and was also the champion of the competition. More importantly, having seen several scenes involving him on the previous day, Wang Yuanyuan saw him in another light. Although he was very young, having a knight of his caliber in her team was extremely beneficial, let alone the presence of Cai’er, who was the best assassin of this great competition and possibly the most powerful existence that had participated. As for this mage, he was completely ignored by Wang Yuanyuan.

Long Haochen was similarly pleased because, in a team, the importance of the warrior was second only to that of the priest. Although Wang Yuanyuan couldn’t enter the top 16, she had also already broken through the fifth step. And having battled her previously, he had a better understanding of her strength. He had the faint impression that Wang Yuanyuan, with her Gigantic Divine Soul Shield, was the strongest warrior of this competition. In his team, although Lin Xin couldn’t attack, all four members were at the fifth step so far. And furthermore, three of them were the strongest of their own Temple during the competition.

From behind the roulette, Han Qian once again said, “Now, the priest member will be selected.”

On the roulette, ten names appeared once again. The same as previously, rings of light revolved at a great speed, and the scarlet-colored pearl was handed, just as before, onto Long Haochen’s hand.

Let’s hope for an outstanding priest. LHC was not well versed with regard to priests, but from his assumption, any of the top ten priests had to be pretty good, so he didn’t excessively worry about it.

At that moment, all the priests were feeling extremely nervous. Amongst them, only three were guys and the rests were all girls, all looking quite pretty. Currently, there were even some of them that thought to themselves, As long as he doesn’t get married, I still have a chance!

There was only a single exception. Stroking his large bald head, Sima Xian looked indifferently toward the terrace. For a probability of 10%, what good is there to feel nervous? How could he get such great luck?! Also, all teams have their good points. If the other members are a bit weaker, maybe I’ll be chosen as captain.

The roulette came to a standstill. Long Haochen, who was standing behind, looked completely stunned.

Han Qian’s voice sounded, “Demon Hunt Squad #1, priest, Sima Xian. Step forward!”

“Eh? Me?” Sima Xian almost jumped up, his fingers on his nose.

The looks of every surrounding people fell onto him accordingly, staring at that shiny bald head and the huge body concealed behind the huge priest gown and his imposing muscles. They couldn’t help but reveal grotesque looks at this scene.

This… Is this a priest?

Sima Xian came in big strides and Long Haochen appeared completely stunned, but still made haste to go up to him. Actually, deep inside, the one he was be most unwilling to draw was Sima Xian. In his Demon Hunt Squad, there was already no shortage of attackers, so the most important was a priest that could heal. However, everything cannot always go as one wishes. This probability of 10% was still drawn. Just like that, they drew the violent priest. In other words, his team would have no specialized healer in it.

“Welcome, new member.” Long Haochen extended his hand to Sima Xian.

Sima Xian put his huge hand down on his and said, while gently laughing, “Last time, I didn’t have the occasion to pay your favor back to you. It is quite good that we ended up in the same squad.”

After finishing, he once again stroked his huge bald head and raised his frightening staff while advancing with big strides, placing himself behind Wang Yuanyuan.

Seeing him, Long Haochen secretly consoled himself, No matter what we say, he’s still the strongest among the priests. That’s right! Still, what other priest could use [Madness]…

There was still one last person, the summoner from the Spiritual Temple.

“Selection of the summoner member for this team.” Han Qian looked at Sima Xian with a contemplative expression.

The roulette swiveled for the third time. Seeing that his “good luck” had chosen such a priest, Long Haochen purposely hesitated for a bit before throwing that scarlet red bead into the roulette.

After a short while, the roulette gradually ceased spinning, and when that scarlet bead stopped, not only did Long Haochen go blank, even the six auxiliary hall masters who were supervising the process, Yang Wenzhao, and also Mu Ning went blank.

For this year’s Demon Hunt Selection, if the participant who stood out the most had to be chosen, it wouldn’t be Long Haochen, nor would it be Yang Wenzhao. It wouldn’t even be the tyrannical Cai’er, the strange bald priest, or Wang Yuanyuan who wields a shield like a battle axe.

Capable of being well known to everyone, such that even the high-leveled people in the Six Great Temples knew, there was only one such person. Only appearing in the preliminaries once, and relying on a summoning technique of the eighth step that no one in the summoner temple wanted to face her and obtaining the first spot in the summoner temple’s preliminaries and only later showed her complete luck during the finals. Completely unreliable and certainly did not grasp the strange [Creature Summoning Gate] technique, the loli summoner, Chen Ying’er.

But at this moment, that eye dazzling scarlet pearl landed precisely in front of that name.

Soul emperor Sanshui’s expression suddenly turned odd, stared at Long Haochen, then turned to look at Yang Wenzhao, repeatedly sighed and regained her composure.

Long Haochen’s lips twitched, Don’t tell me that my luck really has run out? How can it be her! He still distinctly remembered Chen Ying’er’s match with Wang Yuanyuan where she had summoned a small lamb. Not only was this young lady’s summoning ability completely random, she only had enough spiritual energy to summon the [Creature Summoning Gate] once.

Right at this moment, the only thought in Long Haochen’s mind was, this roulette truly isn’t fair…

Han Qian’s face immediately recovered to normal, then announced in a deep voice: “Demon Hunt Squad #1, summoner, Chen Ying’er, step forward.”

Chen Ying’er joyfully leapt up and giggled: “Wow, this is wonderful. I can still be together with Sister Yuanyuan.”

Quickly walking over, she only waved at Long Haochen and didn’t even shake hands with him, then ran over to Wang Yuanyuan’s side.

Hearing Han Qian’s announcement, her face wore a defeated look, and seeing Chen Ying’er happily bounding over in delight, she spoke helplessly, “It’s not like I even want to be on the same squad as you! This brat, you’d just drag us down on the battlefield.”

Chen Ying’er didn’t seem to care, and swinging Wang Yuanyuan’s arm around, she said, “Sister Yuanyuan, you can’t just turn your back on someone like that. Sometimes other people are also very awesome.”

On the podium, Han Qian declared: “Demon Hunt Squad #1, Captain and Knight, Long Haochen. Assassin, Cai’er; Warrior, Wang Yuanyuan; Mage, Lin Xin; Priest, Sima Xian; Summoner, Chen Ying’er. Squad assembly complete.”

From this point on, Long Haochen and the six others had become a squad. Unless a member died, this squad would persist all the way until they ended their career as a Demon Hunt Squad.


  • Truth

    Thanks for the chapter

    • Aeval Sear’Asha

      Yeah it was very Obvious as to what his team setup would be!

    • Belkar

      Indeed, no surprises here.

      Ty for the chapter.

    • Dnomyar

      Yup we all did. Already said it quite a few chapters ago… LHC has to carry his team to victory 😛
      well at least the he has cai er and the warrior aint that bad.

  • Moridain

    This team…
    Still, the lack of healing from teh priest can be covered by the alchemist, Lil Han and the MC.
    The lack of damage from the mage can be made up for by the fact the priest and warrior are musclehead dps (and MC is also retro)
    And the summoner makes for fun situations when she summons T9 demons of doom against goblins, and chickens vs demon lords.

    • Aeval Sear’Asha

      haha was thinking the same about the summons, will be a good laugh in the future!

    • Vsolon

      And i bet the Chicken will win.

      • Moridain

        ‘Aaarg! How did you know my only weakness was poultry!’
        /dies

    • gorlokko

      Can the priest cast the spell to detect invisble enemys?
      Both knights and hao yue can heal but only a priest can cast that spell.

    • Anto Wibowo

      nah, hao yu will take care of magic attack and healing

    • Kharmey

      Well, it’s not like she only know this ultimate random summoner spell. Because it’s impossible that it was the first one she learned.

      She must know the basic one too, but never rely on it during tournament. (because she prefer betting everything on the ultimate one)

  • evilage

    How jealous would Yang Wenzhao feel XD

  • kirindas

    As expected, their team has the strangest members. XD
    Thanks for the chapter!

  • Stevfox1

    Thanks for the chapter😀

  • k1nk4

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • Yassir Benkadmir

    Strange thing i was reading the chapter while watching the champions league drawing
    Anyway thank you for the chapter

  • Shak

    A loli that is into yuri? with manly Tower shield wielding female warrior rolf

  • cit

    Yea, we all knew this was coming, Still funny to watch everyones reactions. When Ca’er and LHC are considered the ‘normal’ people in the group, you know that groups weird.

  • tie

    Sanshui soul emperor’s ? typo?

    • youp, should be Ruoshui, thanks, fixed!

  • gohankuten

    Really his luck is so great getting all the oddballs lol. He even got the girl that Yang Wenzhao wanted.

  • Robert Dxd

    I was thinking “It cant be that easy” this entire time, but nope it was that easy.

    • Truth

      They secretly used a Staple’s Easy button

  • lordcattank

    oh for **** sake did he really get all the odd balls in the whole 6 temples.thank you very much for the chapter

  • Kevin Cazad

    Lol they make it sound like he got a bad team. That summoner although she can’t control her powers properly is probably as dangerous as caier or will be in the future.

  • JBJHova

    You know that it isn’t luck that he got these members. He is the MC of the story and the only reason we know about the other members is because they were going to be a part of his team and the rest of the plot. I’m sure if different members were going to be chosen; we would have received back stories of other characters before now. Thank you for the chapter. I really don’t like that childish summoner.

  • Pavel

    Thanks.

  • kitten

    Thanks

  • MoarDakka

    His team is all made of Oddballs who are #1 of their classes. His Plot Armor is godlike

    • GuldTasken

      LHC -> Attacker/Defender
      Cai’Er -> Attacker
      Wang YuanYaun -> Attacker/Option Defender. I mean, shield
      Chin Ying’er -> Unreliable.
      Sima Xian -> Attacker (He used to be warrior I think?)
      Lin Xin -> Defender.

      In other words, they have so much offensive power but Soooo little Defensive power. Let’s hope Xian abilities as a healer improves. Lin Xin can probably make some potions luckily. Chin Ying’er looks like the Mascot with her unreliable status.

      • MoarDakka

        You clearly underestimate the power the word “Random” carries. Chin Ying’er may be unreliable in constancy terms. but she’ll really shine out there with her Random power.

      • Luke Confidential

        She’s Mascot and a vehicle for Deus Ex Machina. Up against a super deadly foe? Luckily she summons something super strong.

  • QWERTY

    Thanks for the chapter.. Your hard work is much apreciated. I clicked ads like 50 times but i wonder it counts as cheat or not xD

  • xxjce

    “It’s not like I even want to be on the same squad as you! This brat, you’d just drag us down on the battlefield.” Who did she say this too? I didn’t quite get it.

    • QWERTY

      She said it to Cheng Ying’er

      • xxjce

        Thank you 🙂

  • Bravo

    God, I was so happy that Sima Xian got picked. He’s one of my favourite characters in this series (second only to LHC’s teacher).

    I hope his story gets expanded upon more in future updates as I would love to learn why this priest focused solely on training his muscles. Did he think that that would help him in his healing? Or did he have no talent for that whatsoever and just decided to go the muscle route?

    • Kharmey

      well, if he had no talent for healing, he shouldn’t have been able to enter the priest temple to begin with. I assume his healing skill must be at basic lvl because he love to be aggressiv (and play the buffer).
      The same for their wizard, he’s at 5th grade and a genius. I assume he doesn’t know any atk spell only because he never focus on it. It’s a big hole from the author because it’s a weakness he should quite easely work on.

  • AnonCom1

    well looks like the member really like what i though it should be since all the char was introduced. i also want to write reply to priest girl as well

    Dear Priest Girl that though of LHC i have 2 reply for your though
    a Positive one
    “even if he is married you still have a chance that is what we called affair”

    a Negative one
    “Give up cause it is Tang Jia San Shao novel and he never do harem at least not on this novel”

    • Luke Confidential

      And a third:
      “Treasure your life while you have it, touch LHC and the Yandere will gut you like a fish.”

  • Jyazen

    No healer? Don’t worry, big bro has drugs.

    • Luke Confidential

      Exactly. People keep looking down on Lin Xin but he’s the linch pin that makes this otherwise pure offense [aside from the Guardian Knights] work.

      He specializes in defensive/support magic and big bro has drugs.

      • EclipseK

        So I guess the mage is the healer/drug dealer? I’m surprisingly fine with that. At least they’ll never be low on funds and his pills are extremely good.

  • Tarvis

    Let’s be honest, if you can get number 1 in your temple, you’re definitely not normal, in other words, chances are you’re pretty weird or crazy, hence, oddball. 😀

  • Orario MAL

    Gaah his luck is cursed. The only good member he got is the warrior girl (he had gotten Cai’er at the price of a “heavenly treasure”).
    The rest of the squad is just cannon fodder. Dead weight.
    It would have been ok if he at least have gotten a healer, not a warrior in a priest’s robes.

    I’m curious who’s going to die first (who am I kidding, I’m sure they’re all going to live and become badasses -.-)
    ———–
    Sory for my ranting and thank you for the chapter!

    • Luke Confidential

      Do you really think so? He’s got three BADASS attackers, a Support/Offensive Mage [Hao Yue] and a Support/Defensive Mage [Lin Xin] who is also a very competent Alchemist and thereby medic. The only bad draw is the roulette summoner.

      AND their Knight of the Fifth Step has a retainer knight who is ALSO of the Fifth Step. Both Guardian Knights [one who is also a Retribution Knight] capable of defending and supplementary healing.

      • Orario MAL

        Mages are knows for attack not defense. He’s a failure of a mage, just like his father or whoever was that old dude thought about him.
        Besides, you seem to think those pills are made from grass; remember, they cost a fortune. The whole “healing using drugs” is not plausible.

        The warrior-priest is the worst I guess…as you said, the squad has 3 powerful attackers (LHC, Cai’er and the warrior girl). The so called priest is useless – his job is to heal not to brawl.

        And don’t get me started about that immature fangirl lamb-summoner.

        People only look at the fact that they’re nr1 from their temple. But they didn’t get it because they were the best: the mage used deception, the lamb-summoner gambled and the priest is warrior with a priest’s robes. Lol

        • Luke Confidential

          Think of it this way.

          Lin Xin is handling defense while ALSO providing support magic, replacing a warrior’s typical job with bonuses.

          As for attackers, what makes you think the priest is the worst? I see no reason he would necessarily be inferior to Warrior Girl as an attacker.

          As for heals, they have heals. They have two Guardian Knights of the Fifth Step and Little Light and Drugs. You have to remember that some of the drugs LHC was traded were things that caused you to cultivate faster or provide supplemental mana. At this juncture there’s no reason to expect that medicinal drugs will be prohibitively expensive.

          Lastly, for all we know there’s a chance Lin Xin might even have a limited amount of healing potential in his magic. He’s a prodigy of the fire element, which when manipulated in certain ways in certain media does have certain healing qualities.

          So yes, he is a ‘failure of a mage’ in the traditional context, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be an incredible asset to this particular DPS-Overcharged Demon Hunt Squad.

          But yeah, the Loli was an unfortunate draw. She’s basically walking Deus Ex Machina allowing the author to throw something way above the party’s level on their side when needed.

  • Muzik Saint

    LHC’s squad is made out of the strongest from each temple and their all strange/misfits. LHC the dual knight, Caier the OP blind Assasin, Lin Xin the mage who can’t atk, Yuanyuan the shield warrior that only atk’s, Sima Xian the beserk priest that can’t heal, and Chen Ying’er the loli gambling summoner lmao.

  • Gator

    Thanks so much Totobro!

  • Laidra

    Thanks for the chapter.
    I think with time this squard will be the best in history 😉

    It will get very interesting and enjoyable in the future. I can´t wait 🙂

  • Kevin Zerrudo

    a REALLY ODD squad can also be said UNIQUE
    a warrior that’s not skilled in defense
    a priest that’s not skilled in healing
    a wizard that can’t attack
    a summoner that summons randomly

    • Boom Shark

      Look at it this way, with the summoner you can get either an insanely fucking OP ass monster like LHC’s partner, with a priest that can’t heal you get a front line dude who is gonna smash the fuckers head in first and ask questions later, with a mage who can’t attack you got defense spells out the ass (possibly healing spells too, but from what I remember heals is normally water not fire), and a warrior that is skilled in attack – you get another one who can just smash through and ask questions second.
      Then LHC leading all of them with his ability to control a battle, provide support, and be offense. It’s just freaking nuts how much power they hold, even without realizing it.

      • RyokoZero

        Their team is gonna rek the battle field.They have DPS potential for sure. LHC mount is capable of support and heals too. Op fa shoo.

      • Asura

        fire has some healing capabilities it can be used cauterizing wounds, but it’s still bad in the healing department

  • Captain Facts

    F*ck yes! Exactly the team I guessed and hoped for.

    But how the hell will they heal?!

    • RPGX

      Little Light 😀

      • Luke Confidential

        And Long Hao Chen, and LHC’s retainer knight [also a Guardian Knight of the Fifth Step], and Big Brother’s Drugs.

    • RyokoZero

      They have plenty of heals… plenty.

    • Nikki

      Big bro got drugs big bro got drugs…..I hope XD

    • The Dragon King

      LCH has to be stuck with this ridiculous team the rest of his demon hint career. I feel like he should get all 3 spiritual stoves as compensation. The warrior, and cai er (of course) are great. The priest would be great if he could get two. Lin Xin is basically just an alchemist but they need a Mage that can attack since mages are the really only ranged people (maybe summoner but not really since the summoned r close combat usually) and the roulette system summoner relies on luck TOO much it’d be okay if she was useful/ not dead weight if her summon fails but she ain’t so…… I have nothing left to say besides “may the light shine upon u in the future LCH, cuz it sure ain’t now”

  • Austin Griffin

    Those girl priest think they can steal LHC from Cai’er the must be crazy. Cai’er would cut them to pieces

    • EclipseK

      They’re not crazy. Just a but suicidal…

      • RyokoZero

        here here…

      • Firekarkon

        M girls

  • Varler

    Wow! What an amazing squad! We never guessed that was going to happen! /sarcasm

  • Azuka

    Ah, I can see it, when they start hunting demons you’ll see the problems of having a priest that fights rather than heals, a mage that only uses defense spells and a loli who (seemingly) knows only one spell. Individually they’re good, but as a team who knows what will happen (no seriously). They’ll be famous for sure.

    • killerwakka1

      in my view only the warrior, LHC and Cai’er are good indicidually, but as team they compensate each other

      • Frenzy85

        Well… LHC alone can somewhat fill every role except Assassin, so that’s a moot point.

  • Mike M

    alright we got the alround knight ( our genius MC)
    we got the girl he loves and who is a even higher genius then him ( i think sadly no OP mount 🙁 )
    we got a mage that can’t attack but you have read that he is a fucking tank! ( he will buff the def for the team and he got drugs 😀 )
    we got a berseker priest ( the don’t have to worry much about him he will just reck people with a light hammer)
    a warrior that uses a shield for a axe and she got gems so owww boy( can you imagine what that would be like with buffs???? she will make a crater 5 meters deep and 5 meters wide poor demons)
    a summoner that’s a jack of trades ( don’t think this will work out great but hey who knows)
    and we got a retainer boy ( that’s got upgraded by our genius MC so he can take the role of the warrior for defence 😛 )
    all in all this team is a wacko they are so heavily focused on attack i don’t think the enemy will even get the chance to attack because they will be grounded into dust.
    ( why focus on a bit of defence when you can destroy them even faster,harder,stronger and better so i can’t wait for the shit to go down!

  • Greed

    so the demon hunt squad you get is random and you cant do anything about it….
    that dont seem like somthing id wanna go out and risk my life with, what if you get stuck with a group that dont get along or some other problem just sounds like a stupid system to me =(

    • RyokoZero

      LOL… he got the team we all thought he would get. I don’t know why they are complaining about the summoner… she could summon a 9 step and clean up. She just needs roll all her bad luck before hand. I am sure she will figure out what she is doing wrong and summon OP beast through through the gate she shouldn’t even be able to use int he first place.

  • VanillaCustardPie

    Thank you~

  • Frun Blumglin

    Thanks for the chapter!!!~
    #calledit
    … why does this squad remind me of slap up party arad senki? XD…. i don’t think it’s just the priest… but it might be…

  • Dawnyaaa

    We’ll all knew he would get those members..still he snatched every members that won first place at their respective temple..kind of cheap..I would have prefer if he had the plant summoner or a healer that can actually heal.

    • gohankuten

      But then it wouldn’t be nearly as funny lol.

  • DarkSanity

    So lets see… a all rounder knight(LHC), a healadin meatshield(his minio…ahem retainer), op blind assassin girlfriend(Cai Er), monk posing as a priest(baldy), useful axeshield warrior(tomboy), and the mascot loli summoner, who I kind of want to go for LHC since she would prob ignore Cai Er’s killing intent while making that ret knight hate his guts… haha.

    • DarkSanity

      Oh and the useful alchemist wanna be mage who will be the defender for the team xD. At least all those corpses will be put to use right away…

  • The Dragon King

    I feel so sorry for LCH he got the most riduclous team ever and it’s not even funny. I’d actually be kinda okay with this if he didn’t have to lose his spiritual stove prize and got a new ability (op if possible)

    • Lunarbdog

      And den da Leaders said “Sheeeeet we fkd up dat squad. Cant have out most OP baby-makin lovebirds be subject to such a BS squad. Lets give him dat Stove anyway as a consolation.”

      • The Dragon King

        Then LCH said “FUCK YEAH!!!” (Not) he actually said “Thank you for this great honor and privilege but I made a deal that I will not go back on”

        Leaders say “he’s this well mannered kind and humble. Well we should give him 7 extra team members, (whatever would be a trillion u.s. Dollars in their currency), and the spiritual stove he should have recived. (7 new team members: Li Xin, a really god attack Mage, a really really good female healing priest, an extra warrior, an extra assassin (to be cai er lackey), and 2 extra summoners (that plant and beast one)

      • Frenzy85

        Well, to be fair… I believe his squad consists of all the winners from the temple preliminaries (except LHC, who actually won the whole thing despite losing in the prelims; and Caier who kept giving up so she could go on dates with LHC).

        • gohankuten

          She was the #1 assassin cause none of the other competing assassins dared claim first from her.

  • The Dragon King

    LCH has to be stuck with this ridiculous team the rest of his demon hint career. I feel like he should get all 3 spiritual stoves as compensation. The warrior, and cai er (of course) are great. The priest would be great if he could get two. Lin Xin is basically just an alchemist but they need a Mage that can attack since mages are the really only ranged people (maybe summoner but not really since the summoned r close combat usually) and the roulette system summoner relies on luck TOO much it’d be okay if she was useful/ not dead weight if her summon fails but she ain’t so……. I have nothing left to say besides “may the light shine upon u in the future LCH, cuz it sure ain’t now”

    I don’t really understand the problems everyone has with this team’s makeup. Everyone seems to be forgetting about LHC’s taunt and pull abilities. With those two, he has the ability to prevent most serious injuries from hitting his party. Additionally, LX can’t attack but his fight with SX showed that he is capable of deploying wide area remote defenses – the perfect counter to an AOE spell.
    So with taunt to counter leaders/bosses and magic shields for AOE, the only thing you’re left with is damage from scrubs, and his team members are individually so OP that I can’t really see scrubs getting the opportunity to hit them.

      Mage = best dps class
      Priest = best heal class

      Although LHC can do both, he can’t compare to those two classes. Even a semi-decent priest would be better than LHC when it comes to strictly healing ability.

      Same for Mage. Not even Retribution Knights can dish out as much dps as them.

      The downside of those classes is that they’re very specialized, and have paper defenses. But that’s why they’re forming squads!
      Right now, the roles within LHC’s squad is completely messed up. Too much vanguard DPS.

      They currently have 3 vanguards compared to the usual 2. And Lin Xin’s defensive spells also somewhat overlap with the vanguard’s usual responsibilities.
      Their support is limited to LHC. Lin Xin can make pills, but that’s more variable than a priest’s skills.

      And lastly… a summoner that can only summon random things is clearly not very good.

    • Christoph

      There are just two team members I’d consider troublesome for the balance, the attacking priest and the random summoner.
      Thanks to the priest they are lacking in the healing department and the summoner just can’t be relied on at all, making her a zero when it comes to planning any strategies.
      The non attacking mage is at least good at supporting and defensive spells, the warrior is a powerful attacker (almost beating LHC), LHC will take care of blocking instead of the warrior.
      All they are lacking is a good healer.

    • Iric Alexis

      the mage has good def and his pill can help, but they will lose middle to long range atker + AoE DPS,

      the summoner is to random but since it’s not game we playing instead a story so she can be very handy in plot building either random summon OP monster when facing OP enemy or the opposite

      the warrior is still handy one way or another.

      the priest… this is the worst i think. having him or not is not a matter in the team, LHC, cai’er absolute excel him in close to middle range atk. the mage can cover AoE defense and have pill.. so what the use of so called berserk priest here….

      in a matter of team build… its more like fighting group rather than a team..

    • The Dragon King

      I’d have none or at least be kinda okay with it if LCH hadn’t lost a spiritual stove and new ability to get this ridiculous team.

  • xxjce

    This is what they look like 🙂

  • SquirrelKing

    Everybody #1 (of their respective temples) yeeeeeaaaaaaaahhhh!!!!

    • Iric Alexis

      ya except LHC who technically lose on rank battle (though he win the competition in the end)

  • Zen

    oh wow didn’t expect the choices to be made by a friggin roulette lol…
    If they have bad luck they can end up with a team with bad composition and waste 6 good talents. Kinda … stupid ? lol

    Although I did call the team right earlier mwahaha… Not sure if i’m happy about that or sad on how it came through lol

  • Zeth

    Thank you so much Totobro, the team was pretty much expected, no surprises there…

  • mcr555

    “It’s not like I even want to be on the same squad as you!” Tsundere spotted

  • demonrcool

    Lol saw that coming and thanks. I think that the summoner and preist become overpowered latter

  • Mark

    Everyone forgetting about LHC’s retainer knight who he can bring with him in the Demon Hunt, so the team will have 2 guardian knights to make up for lack of recovery priest..

  • ZaX

    Pretty much the expected outcome. Super luck and offense specialized team. Thanks for the chapter

  • Naz

    LHC gonna be like paladin a tanker,healer and damage dealer.

  • stupidprocess

    Well then…this whole process of selection is probably the most stupidest way to decide a team. Luck plays way too much of a factor. Shouldcof had just let them recruit their own teams…

    • sbag

      Yeah, but then the teams would be almost 100% top 16.

  • Drifter

    it would have been cool if the mage could learn healing magic so the roles would be reversed. Priest and warrior doing the attack while mage healing and defending.
    Aditionally LHC can summon the retainers for the upcoming 5 yrs or so and well they are guardian knight i think so they should have healing power.
    Alternatively LHC will use taunt nd pull to attract damage, HY will heal him using light attribute or accelerate his self-healing with the light attribute . He ll be a tank healer and might even be a damage dealer in future given he knows Light Horn and other stuffs.
    i was kind a disappointed with the sword of his tbh any one else expected sth better?

    • Spiriter

      It’s a growing weapon…. It’ll be OP later.

      • Drifter

        yeh but still something so hyped should have some extremely powerful presence no? the sword clashed with the other guys one without even denting it.

        • sbag

          I think they said he didn’t use all of its abilities. But I could be wrong.

    • Trash

      Big bro has drugs. Should be enough to replace healing/buff.

      • sbag

        Damn, stole the words out of my mouth. What’s that say when my words are Trash’s words? ….

    • sbag

      Are you saying LHC will be a WOW Palidin?

      • Drifter

        could be.

  • Ronald Wood

    Their squad is really a band of misfits

  • sbag

    HAHAHAHHAHA I called them all lol! Don’t believe me? Check the chat on the last chapter.

    • yr not the only one :p

    • boozoomoozoo

      He basically teamed up with all the characters the author bothered to describe.

  • AnimeLoverC

    It seems I forgot the giant shield girl….and the fact that this team of misfits is interesting…but not a very balanced team.

  • Fenris

    that loli is full of arrogance tho it’s not that bad i mean she can summon sheep so when squad gets hungry her summons will be quite useful

  • Tetsuki

    Could he have made it a little bit less predictiv…

  • kensche heiashi

    Thank ya very much for the translation, translator! Many thanks towards the Author!

  • SamVision

    Large Hadron Collider

  • KenKen

    All I got to say is ….Hao Chen got high luck with freaks HAHAHAHA His team of freaks sure is interesting. >. <

  • Blazicken

    Why so predictable tho?
    Mage who can’t attack
    Priest who can’t heal
    Shield warrior who can’t defend
    Summoner whose summoning is unreliable…

    At least they have a knight who can do all 4
    and the deadliest assassin

    Oh… Let’s not forget Han who has now the potential to become a devine knight…

    Lin xin and wang yuanyuan can switch roles (+ big bro has drugs) & chen ying’er may be a double edged sword…
    But what will be the point of Sima Xian??

    • donkeydued

      Sima xian = hulk smash

  • Akherr

    Basically he has a team of Oscars xP

    • Maxx Ryan Creese

      i your father have big sausage LOL

      • berr33

        I your father have a mirror sausage…….?

    • A knight with the power of light, contract with demon
      A yandere assassin, blind
      A shield only warrior, can’t defend
      A buff priest, can’t heal
      A diversity talent Mage, can’t attack
      A loli summoner, roulette styled summoning
