Volume 18, Chapter 165.3: Fourth Soul Ring

Huo Yuhao decided to accept Electrolux’s teachings after a period of consideration.  As he entered the world of necromancy, he slowly felt the charm of it.

True necromancy was far superior to the evil soul skills that the Envoy of the Death God had used. Necromancy involved research on souls, especially those after death.

Electrolux told Huo Yuhao that the first necromancer in his original world learned the art for the sake of reviving his dead wife. Although he wasn’t able to revive his wife, her soul was resurrected, and he managed to live with his wife’s soul until he himself perished.

Huo Yuhao could only grasp very little, as his cultivation was too low. However, he had managed to develop his foundation in necromancy over the past two years. Right now, he had used necromancy to make the golden wolf his bodyguard temporarily. Although it wouldn’t be for long, it would be long enough for him to absorb his fourth soul ring.

Huo Yuhao revealed a determined look as he placed the Silvermoon Wolf King’s corpse on the ground. He was certain that even an eight-ringed Soul Douluo couldn’t deal with a Silvermoon Wolf King easily under normal conditions. The Silvermoon Wolf King’s fighting strength was immense, and its spiritual power was also greater than that of most ordinary soul beasts. More frighteningly, it could enslave other wolf-type soul beasts. If Huo Yuhao hadn’t unleashed his explosive killing power at the very start, along with his powerful soul skills, he wouldn’t have stood a chance against the Silvermoon Wolf King.

Huo Yuhao was very certain that the Ice Empress’ Armor was unable to resist the golden wolves’ attacks, and that he truly needed Hongchen’s Blessing to protect himself. He wasn’t capable of dealing with three golden wolves at his current cultivation level.

And the Silvermoon Wolf King was even stronger than them. It had a seven-elements defense that made it very resolute. If he hadn’t used the Destiny Soul Gaze at the start to critically injure the Silvermoon Wolf King and affect its spiritual powers, the battle wouldn’t have ended so easily.

However, all that was in the past. Huo Yuhao had succeeded, and the most important thing that he had to do now was absorb his fourth soul ring.

His gentle soul power rose, and the Mysterious Heaven Technique circulated normally. Huo Yuhao’s spiritual power gradually guided the black soul ring hovering over the Silvermoon Wolf King’s corpse towards him.

It was a ten-thousand year soul ring, but this soul ring wasn’t just an ordinary black. Seven types of light subtly flashed within it, and Huo Yuhao could clearly sense the undulations of the seven elements. 

Back when he was absorbing his third soul ring from the Purplespirit Wolf, Huo Yuhao had been quite embarrassed, although he wasn’t afraid at all. That was because Elder Mu had been guarding out in front of the Sea God’s Pavilion for him.

Right now, he was absorbing a ten-thousand year soul ring again. However, he was doing it by a trail out in the Jing Yang Mountain Range.

As the black soul ring entered his body, there were only two words to describe Huo Yuhao’s feelings – blown away.

When the black soul ring fused with his body, Huo Yuhao felt as if his entire body was about to blow apart. His entire person shook tremendously, and a layer of seven-colored light shone from his body to a diameter of three meters before dimming. Huo Yuhao’s face also turned pale.

He never expected the Silvermoon Wolf King’s aura to be so domineering. This might did not come from the immense spiritual power at the core of the soul ring, but from the strength of the elements within it.

Water, fire, earth, wind, light, darkness and thunder, which were only achieved after ten thousand years of cultivation. The seven elements contained their own abilities, but they were all unleashed in Huo Yuhao’s body in that instant.

Huo Yuhao’s will was already very strong. However, he felt as if his entire body was about to explode when the frightening force blew apart. It wasn’t a comfortable feeling at all!


However, he could only endure!

While enduring it was pure torment to Huo Yuhao, he could reap great benefits if he managed to successfully pass this test

His soul power circulated fully, and started to accept the soul ring. At the same time, two waves of force were released inside Huo Yuhao’s body.

The Silvermoon Wolf King was infringing on the territory of the Ice Empress. The Ice Empress was going to retaliate!

Huo Yuhao’s body turned azure-green at this instant, a color that originated from the Ice Jade Empress Scorpion’s skeleton.

An intense azure light spread to every corner of his body. A chilly aura instantly repressed the manic explosive force. The Ice Jade Empress Scorpion’s aura was also released at this moment, and repressed the Silvermoon Wolf King’s soul ring.

While the Silvermoon Wolf King was very powerful, how could it compare to a four-hundred thousand year soul beast that was one of the Ten Great Savage Beasts and Three Heavenly Kings of the Extreme North, the Ice Empress?

The all-engulfing, frightening will and desolate aura of the Ice Empress instantly repressed the manic struggle.

However, the Silvermoon Wolf King was an arrogant creature. It wouldn’t submit even under such circumstances. Since it couldn’t match up in terms of soul power, it activated its dominant spiritual power. However, once it did so, it collided with a spiritual barrier.

The Skydream Iceworm was not as hot-tempered as the Ice Empress, but the Silvermoon Wolf King had crossed its bottom line.

Huo Yuhao had expended a lot of effort to kill this soul beast. He was fatigued now and couldn’t be counted on to absorb the soul ring. After remaining silent for so long, the Skydream Iceworm decided that it had to do something… and so the Silvermoon Wolf King’s spiritual power didn’t work.

In terms of species, the Iceworms couldn’t compare to the Silverwolves. They weren’t even on the same level. However, the Silvermoon Wolf King wasn’t anywhere near as old as the Skydream Iceworm!

Even in the Great Star Dou Forest, Skydream Iceworms were treated as treasures by the other hundred-thousand year soul beasts. No soul beasts in the world could compare to Skydream Iceworms in terms of spiritual power. The only weakness of the Skydream Iceworms was that they didn’t have any offensive abilities.

However, they were immensely strong in terms of defense.

The fusion process became much easier with the help of the Ice Empress and Skydream Iceworm. The black fourth soul ring was slowly imprinted onto Huo Yuhao’s soul and body after a brief period of torment.

Not only this, but the Skydream Iceworm and Ice Empress also took this opportunity to further fuse their powers into Huo Yuhao’s body.

The origin power released by the Ice Empress’ skeleton slowly combined with Huo Yuhao’s body. Not only did this enhance his soul power, it also made his body tougher.

The Skydream Iceworm used his own spiritual power to restore Huo Yuhao’s Spiritual Sea and second mental sea. At the same time, it expanded the size of Huo Yuhao’s Spiritual Sea.

The leap from a soul elder to a soul ancestor was very important for every soul master. This signified that they had progressed from the beginner stage to the intermediate stage. Even though such an appraisal couldn’t be used on someone as talented as Huo Yuhao, his abilities did indeed improve by another level. Perhaps it was because the Silvermoon Wolf King’s soul ring was strong enough, or the Ice Empress and Skydream’s powers were too great, but after fusing with his fourth soul ring, Huo Yuhao’s soul power crossed Rank 41 and reached Rank 42. This was a delightful surprise for Huo Yuhao, whose cultivation speed had slowed down greatly.


It was already daybreak when he opened his eyes. The trail was foggy, and he was unable to see the sunrise, so he couldn’t cultivate his Purple Demon Eyes today.

Huo Yuhao jumped up and stretched. An immense force surged through his entire body, which was a very refreshing feeling. His body also became much more flexible. The increase in his soul power caused his overall abilities to jump by twenty percent. While he still couldn’t use the Ice Empress’ Wrath twice with his current abilities, he could at least unleash the Domain of Perpetual Ice another time.

“I wonder how much time has passed.” With his previous experience of how long it took him to absorb soul rings, Huo Yuhao was uncertain whether it was the second, third, or even the fourth morning.

His mind wavered, and a golden light shone from his eyes. One white, one purple, and two black soul rings rose from his feet. His Spiritual Detection was unleashed, and Huo Yuhao was delighted to feel that it had been enhanced once again. He was now able to increase his detection to a six-hundred meter radius. If he changed his detection to make it unidirectional, he could double the distance!

The Silvermoon Wolf King’s corpse was as stiff as ever. The ice imbuing it couldn’t be melted so easily.

Huo Yuhao put the corpse away in his storage-type soul tool, and his four soul rings also disappeared. His trip to the Jing Yang Mountain Range wasn’t a waste after all. He wondered what his fourth soul ring’s ability was.

As he thought about  it, the four soul rings that had disappeared earlier surfaced once again. The black fourth soul ring lit up brightly, and a soul skill activated.

Huo Yuhao was stunned after it was displayed. He wasn’t sure whether he should be happy or worried.

He naturally expected the seven-colored, seven-elements defense of the Silvermoon Wolf King. It was an impressive defensive skill!

However, that was not what he had obtained. It wasn’t a defensive-type soul skill. Rather, it was…
