He was the true core and the main attacker of the Thousand Spirits Academy team, and his Thousandstrike Lance allowed him to specialize in both long and short-range attacks. Shen Ce was at the five-ringed Soul King level of power. According to Wang Yan’s predictions, he was around Rank 53 or 54. Shen Ce’s martial soul was an extremely sharp and long lance. Its twelve-foot-long body shone a brilliant silver, and faint carvings covered its surface. He had a Class 5 defense-type soul tool. As a result he was able to take the full brunt of He Caitou's soul tool fortress head-on without going down. The teams plan was for Shen Ce to attack from range and win the fight that way but Huo Yuhao hit him with a sprite shock that hit his own wall. Later he regathered him self and launched an attack at Huo Yuhao but that was blocked by Xu Sanshi. After that the team was crushed by Huo Yuhao despite Shen Ce's leadership as the Captain.
