Book 11, Necropolis of the Gods – Chapter 31, Necropolis of the Gods, the Eleventh Floor!

Atop the prairie, the experts all clearly saw the ‘rip’ in space appearing. Although they had heard of how astonishingly powerful the ‘Dimensional Edge’ spell was, personally witnessing the ‘rip in space’ created by the ‘Dimensional Edge’ still left them feeling awed.

“The Dimensional Edge spell really does live up to its reputation of being the most powerful single-target forbidden-level spell.” Fain sighed in shock. “Even me…if a Grand Magus Saint ambushed me with this spell, if we weren’t too distant from each other, I would probably be unable to dodge in time.”

The ‘Dimensional Edge’ spell could be considered to have reached a pinnacle in single-target attacks for the wind-style.

Its speed had reached the absolute limit, and its attack power had reached the limit as well.

“This is why I generally will always be rather cautious around wind-style Grand Magus Saints, especially if they have any grudge against me.” Desri laughed. “Generally speaking, whenever I sense a large amount of wind elemental essence gathering close to me, I’ll immediately run and hide as far away as I can.”

“Haha…” All the experts began to laugh loudly.

“Desri, you are afraid as well?” Fain laughed loudly as he said.

For Linley to finally break through to become a Grand Magus Saint was something which caused Desri, Fain, and the other experts to feel surprise and joy. Linley’s power would increase greatly, which gave their group a higher chance of obtaining a divine spark on the eleventh floor.

“Enough. There’s two more months from now until the year and a half we agreed on is up. Let’s all rest for the final two months.” Desri said clearly.

The experts all nodded, then separated again.

Right now, Bebe was with Linley.

“Boss, you finally reached the Grand Magus Saint level. This is wonderful.” Bebe was so happy that he was jumping up and down, waving his little claws happily in the air, his little eyes squinting in delight.

“Although I’ve become a Grand Magus Saint, that only means my chance of surviving the eleventh floor is now a little bit higher.” Linley sighed. “Look at how much the difficulty level rose from the first level of five floors to the second level of five floors. This eleventh floor…”

Bebe nodded his head as well.

The eleventh floor would probably be ten or a hundred times as dangerous as the sixth floor, where the Flame Tyrant had been!

Would they be successful?

Actually, neither Linley nor Desri, or indeed any of the others, felt confident. But Desri’s group had struggled towards the goal of becoming a Deity for thousands of years, and now that they were so close to reaching their goal, they naturally wouldn’t easily give up.

“In the last two months, we’ll have to prepare well.”

Having reached the Grand Magus Saint level and especially after his soul had changed, Linley felt that his very existence had just transformed to a new stage. Actually, Bebe could also sense it…right now, Linley, standing in front of him, was like a sharp blade that was pointing towards the sky. Utterly unblockable.

…………

Two months later.

Beneath that ancient pillar. Outside the exit. The eleven experts had gathered.

Deep blue draconic scales covering his entire body, Linley was in Dragonform. At the same time, a diamond-like sparkling armor covered Linley’s entire body, including even his draconic tail. This was the protective spell of earth-style Saints….the Sacred Earthguard Armor.

Around the diamond Sacred Earthguard Armor, there was a layer of deep azure-black battle-qi covering Linley’s entire body, forming a thin membrane. This was the ‘Pulseguard Defense’.

The defenses of the Dragonblood Warrior, the Saint-level ‘Sacred Earthguard Armor’, and the ‘Pulseguard Defense’…with these three layers of defenses reinforcing each other, Linley’s current defensive power was most likely so great that not even Bebe could match him.

Desri and Rosarie were covered with their respective Elemental Saint Armors as well, while Fain, Olivier, Tulily and the others were covered with a layer of battle-qi. Everyone had fully prepared themselves. Even Bebe’s body had a dim black aura around it.

“The goal we have been striving towards for five thousand years…it all comes down to this.” Desri’s eyes were glowing.

The eyes of Fain, Tuilily, Rosarie, the three Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lions, and the Blackscale Scorpion were also extremely resolute and firm.

“On the eleventh floor, the danger we encounter will definitely be ten times or a hundred times greater than in the lower floors. Any one, two, or more of us can die!” Desri swept everyone with his gaze. He said solemnly, “But those who survive and are successful, whether man or magical beast, must definitely help the dead resolve their affairs, be it debts or grudges, in the normal world.”

All of the experts nodded silently.

In the eleventh floor, nobody could afford to play the part of a lone hero. They all had to work together to have the slightest hope of success.

Fain swept every single person with his gaze. In a low voice, he said, “No matter what, I hope that at least one of us eleven will become a Deity.” What Fain feared the most was…all eleven of them would perish here on the eleventh floor.

“It isn’t a hope. It is a certainty. An absolute certainty that we will succeed!” Tulily’s eyes were extremely fierce.

“Let’s go.” Desri turned his gaze towards the exit, staring at it.

“Let’s go!”

The eyes of the eleven experts were extremely firm. Together, they entered the darkly glowing exit, heading to the eleventh floor.

Necropolis of the Gods. The eleventh floor!

The light of a setting sun was casting its glow upon this entire world. This was a world of metal, and the vast, endless earth was covered with all sorts of metal constructs. Massive metal mountains and metal valleys could be seen everywhere, and the wind howled here as though it were knives.

Suddenly….

The eleven experts of the Yulan continent appeared at the eleventh floor.

“How desolate. How bizarre.” Rosarie stared at the surrounding area as she mentally spoke into their minds. According to their agreement, after entering the eleventh floor, unless it was absolutely necessary, nobody was to speak, so as to avoid disturbing any terrifyingly powerful creatures here. This ability to speak mentally with the soul was one which Linley could now manage as well.

After one had enough spiritual energy, all one needed to do was learn the trick to it.

“Everyone, be careful. When we encountered the ‘Beholder King’ on the eighth floor, it was also extremely quiet there at first. Nobody can afford to be incautious. Now, let’s go hunting for divine sparks.” Linley, now acknowledged as the most powerful of these eleven experts, led the way in front.

The other experts followed behind Linley. Desri, Rosarie, and Olivier were in the center, as their defense was the weakest.

Linley had three layers of defenses, while his body had the Pearl of Life.

His soul had risen in power, and he possessed the spells of a Grand Magus Saint. Linley was indeed now the most powerful person here.

“Everything here is metal. I don’t sense any life at all.” After flying for a long time, Linley was beginning to frown.

But Linley didn’t dare to let his guard down. He focused all of his attention on maintaining his vigilance, carefully inspecting the area to see if there were any corpses of Deities here, or divine sparks. At the same time, he had to be very careful to see if there were any powerful creatures present, hiding in a hard-to-spot location.

The creatures here could be as large as a mountain or as small as a fist.

The eleven experts were careful enough for twelve people.

“There’s a valley up ahead. It seems to have a special aura about it.” Desri’s voice rang out in everyone’s mind.

Linley also noticed that distant valley, which seemed to have some sort of unique aura emanating from within it. In addition, that aura made one’s heart shake and feel a sense of pressure.

“Could that be the aura of a divine spark?” Linley’s voice rang out in their minds.

Everyone’s eyes lit up. Something capable of making their hearts shake and make them feel pressure…that just might be a divine spark indeed. After all, nobody here had ever seen a divine spark, but they had all sensed a Deity’s divine presence before.

“It might be a divine spark, but it might also be…the creature guarding the eleventh floor.” Rosarie’s face was solemn, and her voice rang out in everyone’s mind.

“Guardian?”

Linley and the others felt their hearts quiver. Logically speaking, the difficulty level of this eleventh floor should be ten times or a hundred times greater than that of the sixth and seventh floors. The Flame Tyrant and the Queen Mother had already been so powerful…then how powerful would the creatures on this eleventh floor be?

“Everyone, let’s decide. Should we enter the valley or not?” Linley asked the experts.

“Enter.” A Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lion said. “If we’re even afraid of this, then even if we find a divine spark inside, there’ll probably be no one bold enough to take it.”

The experts exchanged glances.

Right. If they were so timid as to avoid every unique aura they sensed, how could they possibly find a divine spark?

“Enter.” Fain said mentally, and all of the experts turned to stare towards the valley.

The eleven experts, with Linley in front, crept towards that distant metallic valley. This metallic valley was over a hundred meters wide. As Linley and the rest of the eleven experts flew to the air above the metallic valley, they could even more clearly sense that heart-shaking aura.

“This valley is covered by a faint red fog.” Linley frowned.

Looking down into the immeasurably deep valley and that faint red fog, he saw that the fog was roiling about. It gave Linley a feeling…as though there was an enormous creature beneath the fog, and the fog was its exhaled breath.

Exchanging glances with everyone, Linley mentally spoke to them. “Let’s go down.”

The eleven experts all fearlessly flew downwards. The deeper into the valley they went, the more Linley and the other experts could sense that heart-racing aura. In a short period of time, they entered the area near that red fog, and the eleven experts flew towards the direction of the source of that aura.

“Whooosh.”

Their flying speed was very fast. It only took them a few seconds to go from the air above the valley to the valley below, but those few seconds, to these eleven experts, had been unbearable.

The eleven experts landed on the valley floor. The fog was fairly faint, not too thick, and one could see within a radius of a hundred meters.

“What’s that?” Linley could vaguely see that there was a body lying on an enormous, flat rock, off in the distance. The heart-racing aura was coming from that body.

“A Deity’s corpse.” Desri excitedly transmitted mentally to them.

Linley felt his heart clench hard. Even Fain and Tulily’s breathing became slightly heavier. Without hesitating at all, all of the experts quietly crept towards that giant flat rock.

“Haha…” Suddenly, loud, wild laughter shook the entire valley, and it seemed as though that wild laugh was coming from the giant flat rock which had a boulder resting on it.

All eleven experts, Linley included, felt their hearts suddenly shudder violently.

“Not good.” Linley knew that the situation had just turned grim, and he immediately transmitted mentally, “Retreat, quick, retreat!”

Not just Linley. This was the reaction of the other ten experts as well. They flew into the skies as fast as lightning. Their speed was extremely fast, and in the blink of an eye, they flew out of the faint red fog, but then, Linley and the other ten experts stopped in their tracks.

They stopped there, within the valley, not daring to fly up.

Because above them…

Bodies made entirely out of metal. Arms, legs, and forehead made of swords. These creatures appeared, a low-level type of creature born from the Abyss and made for slaughter…Abyssal Blade Demons!

It was Abyssal Blade Demons!

Linley and the others had encountered an Abyssal Blade Demon on the tenth floor. Although they were extremely fast and powerful, their defense was only average…any one of Linley’s group, when going all out, could have killed that Abyssal Blade Demon.

But right now, Linley, Fain, Desri, and the others all felt a sense of hopelessness in their hearts.

They were clustered as densely together as ants. At least ten thousand Abyssal Blade Demons hovered in the air above the valley, blocking out even the light of the skies. When the Abyssal Blade Demon of the tenth floor had chopped down, Fain, despite using a weapon to block, had still been made to vomit blood by the impact.

In terms of raw offensive power, they were comparable to Tulily.

“Haha…it’s been so long since we’ve encountered any invaders. Children, kill them for me.” Within the endless sea of Abyssal Blade Demons, a small, skinny red Abyssal Blade Demon let out a wild shout.

“Whoosh!” “Whoosh!” “Whoosh!” “Whoosh!”

Howling a piercing howl, the countless Abyssal Blade Demons charged downwards from the sky. Each of them wielded those long blades with both hands. Linley and the others knew exactly how sharp those long blades were. Those were weapons on par with low level divine artifacts.

“Go down.” Desri breathed raggedly.

Without hesitating at all, Linley and the other experts immediately charged back down.

“Swish…” The faint red mist was suddenly sucked away into a different part of the valley at high speed. In the blink of an eye, Linley and the others saw what was going on. The faint red fog had been drawn in by another distant, small, skinny, blood-red Abyssal Blade Demon into his chest.

There was a blood-red Abyssal Blade Demon above them, and there was another one within the valley as well.

“There’s a huge amount of Abyssal Blade Demons below us as well.” Rosarie’s voice rang out in everyone’s minds.

The valley actually had tunnels within it, and two of the tunnels were currently filled with endless amounts of Abyssal Blade Demons which were flying out of it. The air above them was flooded with countless Abyssal Blade Demons, but beneath them, there were tunnels filled with them as well.

        1. then that means that i’m a fallen one, since i’ve became first once long ago and lost all motivation in competing for the position after that… -_-

          1. yup… i just don’t compete with the ranking anymore, but i still participate in the speculation and analyzing the chapters…

  1. Some people have nightmares, while I only fear the spam blocker!
    ….

    He, he, just finished the other chapter only for another to be here.

    Today, I am a 4th leaf clover!

    😀

    1. urgh! ugly man-eating ant army! disgusting!!! I thought IET would bring that sooner or later!
      one of them are definitely gonna die. since it’s 11 saints,odd one out (hope it-s oliver)!
      pity none of them are willing to go above 11th! I had hoped linley’ll clear every floor before.but now they already cheated and escaped from two floors (without killing the floor boss) and not even willing to go to 12th,hmmmm…guess not! it’s too bad though, hero is suppose to save the princess in last floor! *sigh*

          1. hey you dare to be so blunt about it!!! hmph! now that I’ve reached saint level myself you ought to be warned about who you’re joking with!!!

            anyway I still have a feeling that linley’ll go pass 11th! we’ll just have to wait and see!

          2. I am a master water element grand magus saint and a trainee necromancer! one such as myself is truly rare and unique! a normal saint level shadow mouse is no match for me! no your place little rat!!

            ( that might be a little harsh….oh well who cares! he he )

          3. “You truly are quite funny, calling me a rat, that is a first! Haha.” Seemingly young man sighed, instantly losing his frivolous aura. “Do you dare to attack someone who’s power you can not even grasp?” Black haired man released his rigorous control over his internal energy, letting it naturally flow out of his body. Instantly, cracks in space appeared everywhere around him. Clearly, this world was not capable of sustaining his power! “I have been born so long ago, that even Sovereigns do not dare to offend me. Tell me, child, who are you to so bravely stand your ground? Are you brave, or just stupid?”

            AuthorNote – This is character from story that i am writing and creating for fun in my free time 🙂 Well, his end-phase, hueh.

          4. do not dare to call me stupid!! my master is none other than the great hero lord Linley and his follower lord Zasler! if you know so little even after living so many years you ought to call yourself stupid! I know not who you are or who you see yourself to be but…. ‘oy! go have look at the mirror’!!!!
            ha ha ha 😛
            PS. really you writing a novel!!?? then don’t forget to give me a main character! even villon is fine!

          5. Haha, this one would rather be called a book xD I am writing novel too, but it’s story is only starting so far 😛

            “Linley?” Black haired man chuckled happily. “Of course i know him, we sparred quite a few times in the past. He has a great potential, this lad. There aren’t many in existence who can defeat him in head on clash. But he is still too young, how can his understanding compare to mine? Maybe in another hundred thoudand milenia, we will both stand on equal ground. Of course, that is if i do not break through this great obstacle and enter Prime Realm. But that is not something that you ought to know yet, child.” Black haired man was clearly more friendly now. He could tell if you were lying or not about being affilated with Linley, and in case you were…

          6. Caladbolg, YUZU9 called you a rat?
            Didn’t YUZU9 love bebe?
            i smell something going on here…

            (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ

          7. She called Dariel a rat too, so let’s not get too ahead with love-stories, hueh. I dunno if i am in for triangle 😀

          8. then it was like this in a “gender bender” perspective? hahaha (´・ω・)っ由
            YUZU9 = Linley
            Caladbolg = Delia
            Dariel = Alice

          9. hey saying rat is an insult! bebe is different not like some dumb rats!
            well if you like I could also call you a pig but CD doesn’t seem to have rats so far so…

            @ caladblog
            you obviously do not know the true potential of my master! do not speak as you do! he is a man whom potential far surpasses the likes of you! he does not require millennia for such a feat as beating you to a meat paste! and don’t call me child,old man!!!

            @kaiser-something..
            hey do you need a warrant for death???

          10. Nah, I’m like Doehring, watching over kids playing around 😀

            And rodents are no insult, they’re just food for pets…

          11. Black haired man chuckled again, then shook his head. “You really are an impertinent child. Alright, begone. I did not come to this plane to waste my time on you. Let us talk again when you at least reach level of demigod, child.” Not even realizing what happened, you lost consciousness as foreign energy lightly tapped against your soul. Black haired man sighed again, then dissapeared.

          12. YUZU9:
            for the warrant of death, sorry but i have to reject the offer, this novel is far from completion yet… and being compared to Linley should be a compliment…. and if you want to degrade Caladbolg to a magical-beast, i think you should compare him to a velocidragon rather than a rat-type magical beast, since i haven’t see any saint-level velocidragon yet…. just sayin’

            Dariel:
            i like your idea being Doehring….

            Caladbolg:
            good luck to your novel…

          13. Yeah, she is tsundere.

            @Kaiser – no need to ‘defend’ me, we are just playing with Yuzu 😉

          14. abusing power even at such level! hmph! what a shameful old pig!! ( since rodents are NO INSULT ) I do not wish to see you even after reaching the path of high god! I shall use my minions to wipe your existence, in next time I see you!! exclaims pridefully!!!

          15. all of you who call me a tsudere, GO STRAIGHT TO HELL!
            and I’m not 17 dumbass!
            and who compared you to linley kaiser!

            why the hell is next chap so late! :-\

          16. Come on Yuzu, be it a rat or be it tsundere, neither are bad 😛 And Cathy was probably about High Priest 😛 We know you are 19 😛

          17. tsudere does not have anything to do with CD but ..duh rats do! and i don’t like being called tsudere! scratch that i hate it!! and who told you I’m 19, who knows I maybe 30 or 40??????
            arrgh! forget it!!! why do I feel like it’s pointless to get angry at you guys! I’ll just patiently wait for next chap!

          18. So chu2 and not an 8th grader? Impossibru!
            And during the era of Caladbolg, 8th graders were legal, he’s just adjusting 😀

          19. okay now you make me angry! I’m not a freaking 8th grader you jerk!
            and why do you comment about my age in CD comment section anyway! dumbass!!! it does not have anything to do with CD!

            you guys really like to bully others don’t you!!! I wish I could just shove all your heads in to boiling water!
            end comment

          20. Welcome to the Internet, the best place to awaken your inner S (or M) 😀
            Oh well, but I guess we really wandered way too into offtopic here.

        1. Luckily, there are only 3 existing necropolis…. but unfortunately, it only open every a thousand year… then, how old is the princess? sorry, i forgot that asking a lady her age is rude….

          1. *Walks by and back slaps their heads then looks at them innocently’

            “Wait..It wasn’t me…ah, um ,yea it was my twin”

            .

  2. Thanks Ren and Donors 🙂
    I wonder if Linley could summon 6 World Protector at once? It will be quite helpful
    Now Linley can do mental communications as well, nice…

    Hmm, I think the cats will swallowed a few hundreds of them XD

  3. Damn…. This seems like a hopeless situation, and probably where quite a few of the group will die.
    We know MC will live since plot armor. So that means some of the expendables like Tulily, or a Saint level beast will probably die.
    Can anyone remind me, why doesn’t one of the Deities accompany the expedition into the Necropolis?
    Anyways. Thanks for the Chapter Ren and Sponsors.

      1. I reread the chapter, when they enter the Necropolis and the paragraph about the Deities (not including Beirut) not being able to defeat the Ba-Serpent even if they went in, caught my attention.
        Which means three things… 1. The Deities weren’t confident about surviving an encounter with the Ba-Serpent,
        2. That, maybe, Other Deities have a sensor system detecting other Deities (even if they are sneaking) and will be like “Oh, just detected a Deity, gotta kill em!”
        3. Or as Beirut says, they can’t always be watching over them and they have to survive on their own eventually. Sorta like a parent throwing their child off a tall cliff into a den of huge ass poisonous snakes and saying its for their own good.

      1. You are missing the point… Wouldn’t it make sense to help Saints with potential get divine sparks, deify, and then make the “party to conquer the higher levels”?
        It would be easier for the Deities to recover divine sparks personally and give it to the Saints, than letting the Saints throw themselves at challenges that will get most of them killed in the process.
        The current method, if a bit inefficient, works if Beirut is doing it this way to weed out the weak and has bigger plans that require people of the caliber that rise to the occasion and surpass any near-death experience and get stronger.

        1. The Necropolis was built and populated by a sovereign for his entertainment. Specifically, to watch poor saints struggle in their attempts to overcome handpicked opponents, which pose severe threat to anyone below the deity level.
          Now, save for Ba-serpent, any deity can easily slaughter their way through the levels up to 11th. How is that fun for the sovereign? And what makes you think he’ll tolerate anyone messing with his entertainment?

          1. I sure as hell wouldn’t give a damn,
            At the very least if I were a Deity that was going through the Necropolis I would cut down the obstacles my Saints would face to a still-near-death experience but manageable level that they would be able to escape. After all, Saints still have a purpose even though they are the dregs of the Higher Planes.
            Or leave hints as to what to expect from the opponents on each level since they die mostly from ignorance.
            If the sovereign were to find my actions offensive he would only have two options to deal with me if I were a Highgod wiling to mess up his entertainment.
            1. Send his subordinate Deities to deal with me (But if I were to mess with his entertainment, I would only do so if I were a step away from the Sovereign level and can handle any number of half-baked or powerful Deities he would send at me.)
            2. Come after me himself, which his existence would dematerialize the Necropolis anyways and I would escape into another plane of existence.

          2. And so? There are only seven sovereigns for each element amongst millions of deities. A step away from that? Why would someone like that even bother with entering the necropolis or playing around with puny saints, unless it’s also for entertainment? War God and High Priest bother with saints only because they are at the very bottom of the divine hierarchy.

          3. Wouldn’t it be more than enough reason if the person had a shred of humanity and didn’t want to watch poor souls tear each other to pieces for the entertainment of a sick f*ck?
            Or… destroying the entertainment of others being the entertainment of that person.

          4. DestinyRaider, nope, nope. What you would have done if what you would have done. And, would you even do it? How old are you? Do you go to every elementary school in neighborhood and solve ‘kid fights’ of 6-8 years old? I do not think you do… Neither will any High God bother with getting artifacts or sparks for his subordinates, unless it was for his family, or closest friends…

            You don’t understand mentality of people in Chinese novels, well, read more and immerse in them. Accept it instead of complaining about ‘human laws’. They don’t exist in those worlds, neither do they truly exist in ours, heh.

          5. Yeah, but it hardly has anything to do with the Chinese novels specifically. I mean, CD is the first Chinese novel I’m reading, yet I’ve never had any problem with the characters acting the way they do. I might dislike it or find it stupid at times, but it’s hard to deny they act as expected of humans in the position of power.

          6. Haha u are right, it might be specific for IET, i truly did not read many other Chinese works 😛

  4. Thanks Ren and DimDam of Norway.

    I wonder how much stronger the red Abyssal Blade Demons than the other ones. I can’t wait for tomorrow’s chapter.

    1. probably to strong opponents for the aoe spells to finish them of… but there are 3 grand magus saints to cast aoe, so it might take down a few hundred of them at least…

  5. How long does it take to become a deity with the spark? Probably a while, but if it were as simple as binding it with blood, the best bet might be to rush to the corpse, get the spark, deify, and then wipe them out using your new power.
    However, I bet it’s not that simple.

    1. Think of it similarly to how Delia was able to power up so quickly despite having less talent as a magus than Linley. The divine spark probably makes it easier for the user to understand a single aspect of an Elemental Law. What might have been thousands of years of hard work would probably be reduced to about a few decades of training.

      1. Pretty sure Her rock is even more special then typical divine spark. If it were normal, Only a saint can use it.

        So say that this divine spark is average c rank when her rock is either A or S rank

  6. Thanks for the chapter!

    “This was the protective spell of earth-style Saints….the Earth Saint Armor.”
    ————
    The spell was formerly known as “Earthguard”. Or is ‘Earth Saint Armor’ just a short version of something like ‘Earthguard Armor at the Saint-level’?

  7. Thanks for the chapter, Ren and donators!! ^__^

    epic chapter!!.. Linley finally used the Earthguard Armor(spell)… i thought he forgot about it haha >w<.. i think Linley will use that Meteor Descent forbidden spell or something and fire it six times! killing all the abyssal ants, then he remembers Granda Doehring amongst the chaos(imagines Grandpa Doehring silhouette in the sunset with matching tear dropping that sparkles) hahaha ^w^

    1. Or use Bloodviolet bloodlust aura and start slaughtering those Metalic Demons one after another, and then use CD ring as you said to cast multiple AOE forbidden spells, saving the day 😀

      1. I doubt Linley’s AoE spells have enough attack power seeing how he has only entered the ranks of Grand Magi. On the other hand, earth magic is famous for its group defense spells. If they can find a good position on the ground and limit the number of demons engaging them at the same time, they have a chance.

        1. What is point of Defensive spell if you are not reducing number of enemies? Heavenly Meteor Descend will be of great use, as those Demons only have average defense. One spell should be capable of killing more than thousand of them.

          1. The only problem about the regular demons is their numbers. If you can make it so that they attack only from one direction and just a few of them at once, you won’t die immediately, at least. This might also cause a congestion making AoE attacks by Desri and Rosarie more effective.
            As for meteors, that magic has a fairly slow speed. The demons are as fast as Fain, if not faster, they might be able to escape the affected area before the impact.

          2. Hrm, you are right, but they seem to be quite midnless puppets so far. Not like other creatures that had their own minds.

          3. Rather, they’re soldiers in the demon army. They will die if ordered, but I would expect to see some tactics employed, rather than just a zerg rush.
            Well, I like playing wizards who do field control, so I might be a bit biased here 😀

  8. Thanks for the chapter Ren and donors..
    Was’t it said before that this Necropolis was the toughest of the three? How can Desri and other oldies hope to get a spark from this necropolis if they couldn’t get it from the relatively easy previous necropolises?? If they were really easier,shouldn’t atleast one of the prime saints have gotten a divine spark?? Or is Linley so powerful as to provide and advantage over the previous visits to the easier necropolises??

    1. Without Linley, they wouldn’t have gotten past 6’th floor at all, and they were extremy lucky with what combatants they have for what enemies this time, too. Also Ni-Lions were great help a lot of times. So it’s no surprise that they failed to get sparks in ‘easier’ necropolises, with not enough strong people there 😉

    2. Let’s see, Linley, Bebe, 3(!) Ni-lions, Olivier, even that scorpion. All are new members. And it’s 7/12 initial, 7/11 current. All of the above, save for Bebe, played an important role at least once. And prime saints are also at least a thousand years older, plus have two new divine artifacts to use. I’d say there’s a significant difference compared to the previous attempts.

  9. You know, CD has gotten really popular lately. I wonder how long it would take until fanfictions start popping out. Any guesses?

    Thanks Ren and the Donators for the chapter!

          1. Netizens ff is telling CG from the perspective of the sidecast. his first few chapters was from the perspective of one of the children whom trained next to Linley, and he was going to switch char soon to someone else. Since you seamed to be following the FF, i simply asked if you knew if he had started the next arc yet

          2. I am only reading few chosen FF’s from RR, i do not read this one connected to Coiling Dragon. It would not suit my taste. I might read if after Ren finishes translating CD 😉

            PS: I used netizien as term, not as a nick xD

    1. It’s not stupid. It’s the same reason as to why moobs will not go from floor to floor. They were imprisoned here by, most probably, some Soveregin, and are not allowed to use Divine Sparks that are a baits, just as they are not allowed to go from floor to floor 😉

      @Inbetween – Nope, there are no Diety level moobs here. 😉 Only from 12’th floor onwards.

  10. “But Linley didn’t dare to let up his guard.” should be “let down his guard.”

    So peak Saints are guarding the floors littered with divine sparks? What’s stopping them from taking them to become Deities?

    1. Remember that panda bear on the 5th floor? Remember what he said about becoming a deity? It seems that whenever a creature on a floor below the 12th becomes a deity it would automatically be moved to a higher floor.

      1. Well, it sounds strange that 11 were as carefull as 12, for people with more medicore knowledge of english, like me 😛 Hehe 🙂

        Googled it, and learned something today xD

  11. For Linley to finally break through to become a Grand Magus Saint was something which caused Desri, Fain, and the other experts to feel surprise and joy. Linley’s power would increase greatly, which gave their group a higher chance of obtaining a divine core on the eleventh floor.

    theres a divine core need the end of this

    1. I wanna see Linley using some Grand Magi level spells 🙂 Also he can probably stand guard in the first line, protecting others from those Blade Demons while they keep attacking 🙂

  12. Those demons probably can’t penetrate Linley’s armor, but that won’t hold for everyone else. We need dat AOE, Linley.
    Or maybe, Linley will just assassinate the red one’s but I don’t know if that will stop the lesser ones from attacking or not…

  13. Suddenly, loud, wild laughter shook the entire valley, and it seemed as though that wild laugh was coming the giant flat rock which had a boulder resting on it.

    Ren you should add from

  14. **According to their agreement, after entering the eleventh floor, unless it was absolutely necessarily, nobody was to speak, so as to avoid disturbing any terrifyingly powerful creatures here.**
    necessary
