Volume 18, Chapter 165.2: Fourth Soul Ring

His Destiny Soul Gaze had destroyed the Silvermoon Wolf King’s eyes, and his Darkgolden Terrorclaws had torn its seven-elements defense apart. The Ice Empress’ Wrath now dealt the fatal blow. This was the power of Huo Yuhao, the Eyes of Asura.

Huo Yuhao jumped forward, and his right hand’s Darkgolden Terrorclaws stabbed into the frozen Silvermoon Wolf King’s neck. He flung the Silvermoon Wolf King into the air forcefully after that, then leapt forward and used the Class 5 soul thruster behind his back to increase his speed. He chased after the frozen Silvermoon Wolf King and brought it to an abyss at the bottom of a cliff. The golden wolves that lay in ambush at the sides of the cliff were still affected by Huo Yuhao’s Enfeeblement, and could only watch helplessly as that ball of golden light shot away.

Even at this point, the three golden wolves still couldn’t penetrate the golden light barrier.

A pair of wings from a flying-type soul tool flapped open, and Huo Yuhao’s body stopped falling, before rapidly flying into the distance.

No matter how strong metal-type soul beasts were in the Jing Yang Mountain Range, they couldn’t change the fact that they couldn’t fly. They watched helplessly as Huo Yuhao turned into a ball of golden light and disappeared into the horizon. The layer of golden light around him also diminished, and a dim mist surged out from him. The vapor engulfed his entire body, and his aura disappeared as it did so.

The three golden wolves roared furiously, and burst out running towards the foot of the mountain. However, it was impossible for them to chase Huo Yuhao. After a few minutes, the trail of mist had already disappeared into the clouds between the mountains.


Huo Yuhao finally let out a long breath of relief after he finished nourishing  his soul power with a Class 6 Milk Bottle.

Everything had seemed to be under his control. However, he had spent more than ten seconds gliding through the air after activating his flying soul tool.. He had done that so he could use all his remaining soul power to support his Imitation as a means of concealing himself.

Even though he had now restored almost half of his soul power using the Milk Bottle, he still felt fatigued.

While this battle was a little risky for Huo Yuhao, it was still within his projections. It was only the Silvermoon Wolf King’s abilities that were beyond his expectations. However, he used his immense explosive strength to counteract the slight deviation in his plan.

It was very difficult to find a suitable spiritual-type soul beast for himself. Since he had found one, he couldn’t let it go. He had asked Ju Zi and Ke Ke to leave first so that he could unleash his full abilities. Two facts had let him keep his life. The first was his location. Since he was high on a mountain, it gave him an opportunity to fly into the air to shake off his enemies.

If he had stayed the ground, he would have needed to gain some altitude after using a flight soul tool. With the golden wolves’ leaping abilities, they would have been able to attack him three times each. That was equivalent to nine strikes, since there were three golden wolves!

However, he had been on top of the mountain. When he jumped from the top of the mountain, the golden wolves lost their ability to pursue him. Time was very precious at that point. After Huo Yuhao used all his strength to kill the Silvermoon Wolf King, every second was very critical.

The other reason was that he had another soul tool on his chest, which was there before he left Shrek Academy.

This soul tool was related to Jing Hongchen’s trip to Shrek Academy. Jing Hongchen had been forced to leave behind a soul tool when threatened by Elder Mu. Eventually, he left a Class 9 soul tool behind, Hongchen’s Blessing.

Hongchen’s Blessing could do two things. First, it had a defensive capability that could be automatically initiated. The scarlet-golden light barrier that Huo Yuhao had used to defend against the golden wolves’ attacks earlier was a sign that Hongchen’s Yearning had been initiated. The other thing it could do was the bright golden light barrier that Huo Yuhao had activated at the end, an Invincible Barrier that lasted fifteen seconds. This Invincible Barrier could withstand an offensive force three times Huo Yuhao’s strength.

While the three golden wolves were very strong, they weren’t three times stronger than Huo Yuhao. This allowed him to escape after he killed the Silvermoon Wolf King. Without this Class 9 soul tool, Huo Yuhao would’ve been torn apart by the four wolves. The best result he could’ve achieved was to kill one of them.

Huo Yuhao had kept his cool and stayed behind because he had the Hongchen’s Blessing. He eventually achieved his goal, too. He wasn’t afraid of being discovered by soul beasts as he flew through the sky with his Imitation skill in place.

In addition, it was very late at night. If it were daytime, he would have been more likely to show some flaws.

Although the battle had ended very quickly, Huo Yuhao was spent. Not only was his soul power greatly depleted, but his own spiritual power and energy were also mostly expended. Huo Yuhao was certain that he wouldn’t have been calm enough to win this fight without the tough training that he had gone through in the Ultimate Soldier Plan.

He was even sweating profusely at this moment. The conditions in the Jing Yang Mountain Range couldn’t be judged based on his experience in the Great Star Dou Forest. He needed to be more cautious in the future.

Of course, he wasn’t being too bold, either. He could have escaped, even though he might not have killed the Silvermoon Wolf King, since he had the fifteen seconds of protection from the Hongchen’s Blessing’s Invincible Barrier. His life was never in danger. Huo Yuhao still treasured his life.

Huo Yuhao managed to direct his flying-type soul tool out of the main branch of the Jing Yang Mountain Range as he nourished his soul power with the Milk Bottle. However, he was getting more and more exhausted. More importantly, a black soul ring started to surface from the Silvermoon Wolf King’s body.

The soul ring that surfaced after a soul beast perished only remained for a certain period of time. If there was too much of a delay, the soul ring would dissipate on its own.

Huo Yuhao had expended a lot of effort to get this soul ring, so he couldn’t waste it. He controlled the flying-type soul tool and slowly descended towards the branched trail beneath him. He needed to find a place to absorb his fourth soul ring. At the same time, he needed to regain some of his energy.

The tremendous depletion of his second mental sea meant he had lost his ability to use the Eye of Destiny temporarily. He needed at least a day to fully recover.

Huo Yuhao was still in a good mood after all that had happened. He had obtained his fourth soul ring, which meant that his abilities could be enhanced further. He had been unable to improve recently because of the bottleneck in his cultivation. After absorbing this soul ring, he could reach Rank 41, and Rank 42 was not out of the question. He could become an official Soul Ancestor!


Huo Yuhao found a secluded area along the branched trail of the mountain range, and used his Spiritual Detection to scan his surroundings. After he confirmed that there was nothing that could threaten him within a two-kilometer radius, he quietly sat down on a large mountain rock.

As a golden light flashed, he first flung out a golden wolf’s corpse. This golden wolf was killed by him previously. It had had a cultivation of around a thousand years.

Huo Yuhao pressed his right hand against the golden wolf’s corpse and muttered something under his breath. He was speaking in a weird language, but his body started to shine with weird streaks of light.

The light then changed, starting from his eyes. Huo Yuhao’s Spirit Eyes turned grey, and were filled with a sense of death.

The greyish light circulated, and his right hand was slowly coated in a layer of blurry, greyish light. The greyish color was slowly injected into the head of the golden wolf’s corpse, and a weird scene appeared.

The dead golden wolf started to tremble slightly. Its fur gradually stood on end, and its huge body slowly crawled to its feet. However, its brownish-yellow eyes had turned grey, just like Huo Yuhao’s. It was a terrifying scene to watch.

Huo Yuhao lifted his right hand, and his index finger touched the golden wolf’s forehead lightly. The golden wolf’s body trembled a little, and the greyish color in its eyes turned into jumping, greyish flames.

“Protect me and you won’t come to harm.” Huo Yuhao’s voice was deep and captivating. The golden wolf nodded its head in a very human manner after hearing his words. After that, it jumped away and disappeared into the forest.

Huo Yuhao breathed out and revealed a delighted look. This was his real secret. Even in Shrek Academy, no one knew about it. It was necromancy that came from the Divine Law of Necromancy, taught to him by Calamity Necromancer Electrolux.

When Huo Yuhao’s soul power cultivation broke the Rank 40 barrier, Electrolux told him that he could start cultivating necromancy.

Huo Yuhao was a little doubtful about necromancy at the start, but he soon accepted it under Electrolux’s guidance.

Electrolux told Huo Yuhao that he had a story that belonged to him. However, this story was very long, and he was unwilling to tell it to Huo Yuhao at that point in time. His memory had only been partially restored, and he needed it to be complete before he could be clearer about things.

However, he was certain about one thing. Necromancy would never affect Huo Yuhao’s will. Any skill could be used for good or bad purposes. Necromancy was very powerful and magical, and was completely different from the soul rings, soul power, soul skills, and soul bones in this world. It was an independent yet immense force. However, it could be practiced through a combination of soul power and incantations. This was a profound skill that had been derived by Electrolux after being fused with Huo Yuhao’s body for many years.
