  1. So much for the benefits of joining Spirit Hall. Even with his high status Chrysanthemum Douluo didn’t even get one spirit bone?

    • He most likely did, however tang sans 9th spirit ability left nothing not cloth nor bone. maybe a spirit bone that was comparatively 100k yo bone might survive however they are so rare that they most likely go to bibi dong.

    • No, he might have had spirit bones. Tang San is just so op that when he killed him, he also destroyed all of the spirit bones, along with the body.

    • he might had a spirit bone but Tang San didn’t give a damn, I’m guessing it’s because he had no interest in a spirit bone that suit Chrysanthemum because it would be useless to him and the Shrek Seven.

      • It’s a pity : each of the 7 devils has eaten a least one immortal flower and Dai Mubai even ate the Odd Velvet Sky Chrysanthemum. So a spirit bone left by Yue Guan should suit any of the 7 devils.

        Thanks for the chapter.

  2. Thanks for the chapter XD

    Wait, so Oscar could just feed the army… right….

    They could have saved so much on supplies right there…

    • I was thinking the same, but that’s probably worth saving as a last resort. Especially since he won’t be good for much else while he’s doing that.

      • The food he makes could last for a while though… so it’s not as if he needs to make it all the time…

        He just needs to make it outside of battle when they have time…

        • A single source for a resource is always a bad idea. The enemy could always assassinate little Ao. It makes him a target. If he actually gets injured the army would be stranded. Establishing a supply line is the hardest part, as seen in this chapter. It wouldn’t be possible to sum one up after the fact. It’s much more foolproof to have Oscar as a backup~

          • For how much they talk about food spirit masters being essential for armies, though, you’d think that the Heaven Dou Empire would have a lot of them in their ranks. I mean, typically, they aren’t good for much else, right? Oscar’s the exception in that he actually has battle abilities. I would think all of the food system spirit masters would have sought employment in one of the empire’s armies.

            • Yeah, but throughout the story it consntly says how hard it is to cultivate a food spirit master, so even if Spirit Empire has them, they firstly wouldn’t have many since those that reach a level where they are useful is so few, and secondly wouldn’t be able to feed their own army as the lack of ranks and numbers is to great. I’m pretty sure the only other high level food spirit master we’ve seen was that teacher Dom Shrek

            If they protect him well enough, it’s not much different than trying to off Bibi Dong…

            Like

            • hm, I think Oscar not being a source of food is in order to ensure their freedom of movement for now. They aren’t directly under Xue Beng at the moment and Tang San even got them this way of protecting the supply lines so they wouldn’t be with the army. It might make the army’s life easier, but if Oscar was their source of food, that would mean he (and possibly the others) might have limited movement at certain moments, and they’re the group that wants to do whatever the heck the want to. The supply lines might actually have food spirit masters as well (we aren’t completely privy to what comprises the supply lines).

              • Still, during the time they had, if he went out of his way to keep on making food spirits, not only would it allow him to have a large amount stored when necessary, but it’d be extra training practice for him, since he doesn’t have experience creating so many…

                Like

                • That’s certainly true, but would an emperor want to rely so much on a single person? I know the Shrek Seven Devils are trustworthy, but in a sense Oscar would be holding the entire army ransom… “If you don’t let me [x], I won’t give you my big sausage!” He wouldn’t go on strike like that, but he could! If anything happens to him at all, let alone enemy threat, it could destabilize the entire army.

                  The difference with Bibi Dong is that she can 100% protect herself. Even if she couldn’t, she is a much more valuable asset than Oscar!

                  I’m sure that the army does use a lot of food masters. I think their strength is more buffs and healing rather than field rations though… Having all those spirit masters exhausted from just feeding the army would reduce the overall combat capability and leave them prone to ambush too (right after meal time)!

                  I am thinking way too deeply about this…

                  Like

                  • Well, just cause they use Oscar doesn’t mean they should just abandon their own supply train…

                    But they should also use him. Have him create a bunch of Sausages before hand…

                    Besides, his premade sausages would help the allies recover spirit power.

                    While the mass produced food won’t help higher level masters, for the majority of the Spirit Master’s and soldiers, it’d make a big difference.

                    And they know Oscar won’t do that. Tang San is the one with most of the power at the moment anyways…

                    • It seems like food masters have been forgotten honestly. For a society where food masters are supposed to be common, there haven’t been any food spirit restaurants or anything beyond Oscars food cart that hasn’t been seen since… I don’t even remember XD

                      Like

                    • To be fair, they don’t often go to restaurants, and even if food system masters are common, most of them don’t actually become spirit masters… so they won’t get much business…

                      I mean, try selling only a bunch of peas… and you’d only be able to make like 10 a day…. that wouldn’t be very useful for a business…

                      For a food system master to level up would be really hard…..

                      And decent (not great, decent) food masters would be so rare, it’d be hard to find them. Also, their food may not taste very good either, and the benefit may not be amazing as well…

                      Oscar’s is a high quality one and he could mass produce his food easily.

                      Even if they did have a restaurant somewhere in the continent, it’s a low chance for the MC to meet them…..

                      When trying to fit all criteria, then it’d be hard to find food spirit masters to actually fit the bill…

                      I wonder what kind of spirits the lunch ladies at Shrek have…

                • Maybe? Dunno if Oscar would want to volunteer his services or maybe the author just wants the Shrek Seven Devils as disconnected from the main army as possible? Just do their own thing. Grandmaster would’ve suggested that if it helped (he should be aware of Oscar’s capabilities), but he didn’t, and neither did Tang San. who knows, maybe Oscar did make food beforehand for the army except he left it at those supply places or something (though unlikely since he doesn’t boast about it, haha). It appears to be that its the distribution of logistics which is the problem. Even if they had Oscar providing the food for the first week, distribution could still be an issue. And food isn’t the only logistics they need; there’s clothing, wood, tents, medical materials, armor maintenance stuff. And its a war of attrition so they’d still have to go and defend the supply lines. Plus the SSD might even still leave the battlefield altogether (Tang San hasn’t reached godhood, and I’m sure that’s in the plan for the final battle) oh well, it seems they’re going to use those flying sausages in a plan somehow for a lot of people.

                • Just checked again, the army size is about 2 million. Spirit Douluos should be able to provide for an army of thousands. Oscar could probably feed the spirit master army which is 6k at most. The rest would still be have to be fed by food from the army’s logistics part. The bulk of Heaven Duo’s army are normal cavalry and they hold the advantage in numbers but Spirit Hall has the absolute advantage in spirit masters.

                  Like

                    • Maybe. But I don’t think normal cavalry would be able to completely utilize the effects of his sausage? They have a 2 million large army but only 6000 of those are spirit masters and I think its through spirit power that his sausages help recover? I’m not sure how effective it would be on a normal person.

                      Either way, he couldn’t feed the army alone. He could only feed less than 1% of that army. His first ability might be a basic food master ability. And it could be that other spirit masters have them (I would believe having a recovery ability of some sort would be necessary for food spirit masters) The author isn’t really specific with the logistics and what the source of food is for the rest of the army. They could be food spirit masters who are in the back portion of the army: “In the rear of the army was an enormous provisions unit. As they say, the troops move where fodder and provisions go. Just the numbers of this logistical army surpassed five hundred thousand, moving an uninterrupted flow of supplies. This still wasn’t including the logistics troops within the main army.”

                      and if, for example, the food really does help recover for even normal soldiers, wouldn’t it be better if many food spirit masters were given the task? They would be able to provide more concentrated versions of recovery food, instead of if just one person made it. Oscar is the strongest food master, but he’d still have to provide less concentrated versions to provide for an army of thousands.

                      basically, we aren’t given enough information by the author to determine if Oscar providing food or not would really help in any way. But we are sure that he can’t feed the army on his own. So they’d still need the supply lines more than Oscar. But what he does have that others would probably not have is that flying sausage ability.

                    • Well, he won’t need to feed them alone, but if he makes a bunch before hand and left them to the calvary, then when they need a recharge or something, it’d help them and make a difference…

    • He could but if I remember correctly the Shrek Seven Devils only joined up with the army after they left so it would have been planned anyway. Also even if Oscar can produce that many sausages it would take all his spirit power, making him useless in fights, and since he has gone for a fighter kind of build he naturally would want to avoid that.

        • and what if they are attacked when he just used up his spirit power and ronrongs to increase productivity (easy to know with spies and some comunication system) when their support disapears? He could only produce what he would recover in a few minutes at most. And also his food has properties so it should only be used for special missions, not just as simple food wich can be prudecd by any other food spirit master or come from supply lines or enemy raided supplies

Might as well have established supply lines and use this genius Food system Spirit Douluo in order to provide buffs and support that could help them be more effective in the actual battle.

              Only 6000 of those are spirit masters. The rest aren’t. That’s barely 1% of the army that are spirit masters. That’s not a lot.

                Or if given to the 7 glaze sect, then it’d allow them to spend more power strengthening their allies.

You aren’t owed shit by Bagelson or any other translator. I bet you’ve never even donated before but you rely on everyone else donating for you so you get to read you daily chapter releases.
      Fuck me, I’ve been reading translations since the earliest days of Japanese LN translations and back then nobody would complain about the rate of release, they were happy for what they’ve got. And then time goes on and you get ungrateful shits like yourself spawning into existence, the Anons of wordpress sites who flame translators who are releasing high quality chapters regularly.
      Sincerely, go fuck yourself.

Even if he slows down, having it finished by the end of the year is a likely outcome. You have to remember, the chapters for DD1 are HUGE. Compare the character counts to the next books and you’ll notice that every chapter of DD1 equals multiple of the future ones.
