Chapter 339 – Infiltrating the Dragon Confining Prison

There existed a fearful ability called “Soul Searching Technique” in the Spirit Domain. With this technique, one could invade another person’s mind using their spiritual power, and forcefully plunder the memories within their soul. However, it was quite difficult to activate the Soul Searching Technique as it could only work on a person whose spiritual power was far weaker than the user’s, or on a target in a spiritually weak condition. Furthermore, the activation of this technique was also accompanied by a very big risk. Once the target seized the opportunity to retaliate against the technique, the consequences the user would face were too dreadful to contemplate.

Not only could the Profound Handle be materialized using one’s power to injure the enemy, it could also manifest into a pure spiritual form and invade other person’s soul. So naturally it could also accomplish everything that the “Soul Searching Technique” was capable of. Moreover, the consumption and difficulty of using the Profound Handle was very low compared to the Soul Searching Technique. In addition, since the Profound Handle was a separate entity, there was absolutely no risk of retaliation even if he failed to search another person’s mind due to some unexpected event.

Not only did the person before his eyes have a spiritual power far weaker than his, he was also on the verge of death. Therefore, the process of reading his memories using the Profound Handle was quite easy and smooth. The Profound Handle was very quickly withdrawn by Yun Che. As for that person, he remained lying there on the ground with wide-opened eyes, and no longer made a sound.

The name of this person was Fen Zizai, who was the Hall Master of Burning Heaven Clan’s Seventy Second Hall. A subordinate of the Eighth Elder, he was forty-five years old, and the shape of his body was similar to Yun Che’s. More importantly, the grade of his profound power was the same as Yun Che’s current profound power, as he was also at the sixth level of Earth Profound Realm. The purpose of his going out in midnight was, as he had mentioned before, to quietly enter Bluefire City and find out whether or not Yun Che was hiding within Bluefire City.

“This is truly a big gift that I didn’t expect to receive.” Yun Che sneered as he lowered his brows. After having observed this Fen Zizai’s facial shape in detail, he stripped off the outer clothing on his body and tossed them inside the Sky Poison Pearl. Then, he casually blew open a pit in the ground, kicked the corpses of the two people inside it, and buried them.

Yun Che once again released the Profound Handle while still standing at the place, then fell in a little daze as he looked at the deep orange-colored Profound Handle.

Right now he was in his most ordinary condition, and hadn’t even opened the Evil Soul yet. Under this kind of condition, the released Profound Handle should’ve been a Red Profound Handle, but when he released the Profound Handle this time, it was clearly an Orange Profound Handle!!

He started thinking about the matter again. Back then in the Burning Heaven Clan, he had forcefully opened Purgatory and threw out the Profound Handle in order to save Xiao Lingxi… The Profound Handle at that time was impressively a Cyan Profound Handle, similar to what his grandfather Yun Canghai had!

What is going on? Why would the Profound Handle appear in an advanced state under the same normal conditions as before?

Could it be because of… the Dragon God’s marrow?

When his train of thoughts reached to his point, he immediately found out the most plausible answer. The strength of Profound Handle was half related to blood vessels and half to profound veins. When the Evil Soul gate opened, the power of profound veins would rapidly increase, and the Profound Handle would appear in the color of a higher level. However, some change had happened to his blood vessels after he got the Dragon God’s marrow… The Dragon God’s blood had bestowed an alteration in the composition of his blood vessels, and the Dragon God’s marrow had bestowed an alteration in the essence of his blood vessels! Although the Dragon God’s blood had already fused with his blood vessels, the Dragon God’s marrow would still produce fresh blood! When the Dragon God’s marrow entered inside his body, it allowed his blood vessels to become more and more similar to the incomparably powerful Dragon God’s blood vessels…

In this way, it would also naturally let the Profound Handle, which was linked to power and blood vessels, become more and more formidable!!

Under the current normal condition, the Profound Handle had changed from Red to Orange color. Perhaps in the future, the color of Profound Handle would incessantly raise to a higher level as simply as it raised to orange!

With the continuous increase in the power of Evil God’s profound veins and Dragon God’s blood veins, his Profound Handle might even evolve to the highest level!

When Yun Che returned inside the mountain cave, Xiao Lingxi instantly threw herself at him and hugged him tightly: “Little Che, are you alright? Are you wounded?”

“Haha, don’t worry.” Yun Che laughed in a very relaxed manner: “Currently, there are only a handful of people in the whole Blue Wind Empire who could injure me. Those small fries just now were simply no match for me. Now then, let’s continue to enjoy our delicious food. Forget what happened just now.”

Xiao Lingxi’s heart calmed down. She softly said while looking at Yun Che: “My Little Che has already grown up completely, and has become so awesome… But, hehe, you don’t feel even the least bit unfamiliar to me.”

“But of course. No matter what has happened till now, we’re still the most intimate of persons to each other. So how would I feel unfamiliar to you…? Now, open your mouth.” Yun Che lightly brought a ladle near Xiao Lingxi’s lips. The broth in the ladle was mixed with some grey powder that he had quietly sprinkled inside it just a moment ago.

As soon as Xiao Lingxi swallowed it down, she was suddenly overcome by a burst of fatigue. Her eyes slightly blinked, and then she weakly closed her mouth: “Little Che, I suddenly… feel a bit tired…”

“Tired, huh. Then why don’t you take a good sleep? I’ll be here at your side.”

“Mn…” Xiao Linxi replied softly in agreement. Her whole body relaxed, as she completely immersed into the dreamland.

Before long, Xiao Lingxi’s breathing sound became smooth and steady; the particular sign of a sound sleep person. Yun Che took out a blanket and laid it on the ground. Then he gently placed Xiao Lingxi on it. He said as he looked at her peacefully sleeping face: “I am sorry, Little Aunt… but don’t you worry. I’ll be back very soon. I assure you that when you will wake up and open your eyes, it would be me and grandfather that you’ll catch sight of first.”

Although he had successfully rescued Xiao Lingxi, his grandfather Xiao Lie was still in the hands of the Burning Heaven Clan.

Every additional second he stayed at that place was an additional second of Xiao Lie being miserable and being more in danger. Therefore, he had to use his utmost to save grandfather in the fastest speed possible. He could no longer wait another second to rescue him. As for how to save him, the plan had already formed in his heart at this time. However, he naturally couldn’t bring Xiao Lingxi with him, and if he were to leave her alone at this place, she would definitely feel worried and afraid. So he could only opt to make her fall in a deep slumber.

Yun Che came out of the cave, and after seven and a half minutes, he finished concealing the entrance of the cave. He thought for a little while, then took out five drops of the Dragon King’s blood from inside the Sky Poison Pearl. He mixed more than ten medicinal herbs with them, dipped the solution in water and refined it, and produced five drops of Frozen Profound Liquid Jade.

He called out the Snow Phoenix Beast, and fed it all the five drops of the Frozen Profound Liquid Jade. After drinking the Frozen Profound Liquid Jade, the originally extremely dispirited Snow Phoenix immediately let out a low cry, and its both wings began to flutter in a vigorous manner.

“Chan’er, it hasn’t been long since last time, but I’ll be troubling you again. However, this time it wouldn’t take too long, so you definitely have to persevere.” Yun Che said feeling somewhat guilty, as he caressed and stroked its tail feathers. The Frozen Profound Liquid Jade could let the Snow Phoenix to speedily recover is power, but it was unable to recover the Snow Phoenix Beast’s vitality. Flying at an extreme speed while borrowing external power, would cause further damage to its vitality. But today, Yun Che could only depend on it again.

He put the Snow Phoenix inside the profound seal and changed into Fen Zizai’s clothes. Yun Che also arranged his hair, and put on Fen Zizai’s spatial ring. He brought his hand on his face, and began to make smearing movements. Very soon, his face appeared to look exactly the same as Fen Zizai’s. Then he adjusted his walking posture, and swaggered towards the direction of the Burning Heaven Clan.

It was already late in the night, and the Burning Heaven Clan was still in a complete disorder at this time. It hadn’t recovered at all from the calamity that it had faced yesterday. The majestic and powerful main gate of the clan had disappeared without a trace, and the one they used as a substitute was already in ruins. Above the ruins, more than ten people were still guarding on the previous guarding positions, and some of them were yawning from time to time.

It was at this time when a human figure came over to the place while trotting in a hurried pace. Its arrival immediately caught the attention of the Burning Heaven Clan’s disciple who was guarding the “gate”, and he said in a stern voice: “Who goes there?!”

“It’s me!” The pace of the person approaching the place slowed down, and he answered in a haughty and strict voice.

“Oh, so it’s the Seventy Second Hall Master. Please excuse me for my impropriety!” When the disciple guarding the gate got a clear look of the person coming to the place, he promptly stepped aside as he bowed his head in courtesy.

Another Burning Heaven Clan’s disciple asked: “Seventy Second Hall Master, didn’t you just leave for Bluefire City with the Seventy Third Hall Master? How have you come back so fast?”

“Of course, since I already obtained some important information, I hurried back to report it to the elder.” “Fen Zizai” said in a half-hurried and half-impatient manner: “Make sure to properly guard this place. Our sect is in a crisis right now, so you absolutely should not let any stranger get near this place!”

After he finished speaking, he hastily entered the sect, going straight to the Eighth Elder’s residence.

All the people of the Burning Heaven Clan practiced the Burning Heaven Art of the fire attribute. As a result, everyone had some fire elements swaying around their body. Yun Che accomplished this point very simply due to the presence of the Evil God’s fire seed in his body. Although he was unable to make the aura of his profound power seem completely identical to the Burning Heaven Art’s, as long as no one concentrated their mind and seriously tried to distinguish his aura, it would be very difficult to make out the difference. Moreover, the aura strength of Yun Che’s profound power was completely similar to Fen Zizai’s under normal condition. Therefore, his disguise could almost be considered flawless.

Even though it was already late in the night, there were countless disciples patrolling inside the Burning Heaven Clan. However, none of them suspected that the person who went past them was just stealthily substituting for Fen Zizai.

No one blocked or hindered Yun Che throughout the way, and he entered the pavilion where the Eighth Elder lived. When he claimed that he had some important information to report, he was able to see the Eighth Elder, Fen Mochi, just as he wished.

Fen Mochi had not yet fallen asleep. Seeing “Fen Zizai”, he asked in a deep voice: “What’s the matter? Didn’t I make you and Zhengzhi sneak into Bluefire City, to take advantage of the night and check whether Yun Che had fled to that place or not? So how have you come back so fast? Also, what is that important information you wanted to report?”

“Fen Zizai” hastily said: “Reporting to elder. There’s no need to scout out Bluefire City any more… On the way I sound transmitted to some of my old friends living in Bluefire City to inquire about Yun Che. They told me that yesterday afternoon, they saw a fully snow-white and extraordinarily majestic large bird fly past Bluefire City. Then it landed around the northern part of the city… Afterwards, they didn’t see that large bird flying away from the city again, so we can conclude that Yun Che is at present, hiding inside Bluefire City.”

“So it’s just as we expected!” Fen Mochi stood up as he let out a “huh” sound, and he had an angry look on his face: “Hmph! He is simply looking down on us, Burning Heaven Clan, to so brazenly land inside Bluefire City. He thinks that we won’t dare to take the initiative to chase after him, huh?! Right now we have Grand Clan Master as well as Grand Elder with us. I’ll see how he still keeps up his arrogant attitude!”

“Fen Zizai” silently sneered, and then continued to speak: “Elder, although it’s true that Yun Che is hiding inside Bluefire City, it’s still such a big place, and Yun Che is sure to be prudent. So I think it would be extremely difficult to determine his hideout. I talked it over with Zhengzhi and he has continued to proceed towards Bluefire City ahead of me. This disciple has rushed back with utmost speed to ask for instructions from the elder about a matter.”

“What is it?” Fen Mochi said as he raised his brows.

“Fen Zizai” forcefully swallowed his saliva, and said with a nervous look: “Yun Che has a family member, who is apparently inside the lowest floor of Dragon Confining Prison. This disciple wanted something on this person’s body… Anything would be fine, like clothing or even a pendant. Then I’ll at once hurry to Bluefire City this very night, and hang that thing in a conspicuous place. Perhaps that might be able to draw Yun Che out of hiding. And once he has entered our line of sight, then we can easily know his whereabouts and hideout. This is just a worthless idea of this disciple, and I’d like to ask the elder for his instructions.”

“Oh…” Fen Mochi lowered his head and muttered to himself. After a long time, he slowly said: “This kind of means is too obvious, and extremely difficult to have the targeted person get hooked. But he is young after all… full of vigor and vitality, and do things extremely impulsively. Maybe this will be very effective in his case… All right! Let’s do just as you say. However, even though Yun Che is currently wounded, you and Zhengzhi are absolutely incapable of dealing with him. He should be quite weary and decisive right now, so you must be extremely careful. In the event you find out the place he’s staying at, you must at once sound transmit me.”

“Yes sir!”

“This is my command tablet. With this command tablet you can freely go in and out of the Dragon Confining Prison. Make haste now.” Fen Mochi threw a crimson command tablet at Yun Che, as he said indifferently.

This command tablet was the very thing that Yun Che wanted the most at the moment. Under his perfect disguise, he thought about how everything had progressed even more smoothly than he imagined. Yun Che picked up the command tablet, and took his leave. Then, he went straight to the Dragon Confining Prison.

Fen Mochi remained standing at the place as he muttered to himself for a while. He faintly felt as if something was wrong, but he wasn’t able to put his finger on it. After a while he picked up his sound transmission jade, and spoke out: “Clan Master, we’ve already confirmed that Yun Che is hiding in Bluefire City…”

The Dragon Confining Prison was the Burning Heaven Clan’s internal prison. The disciples who had made big mistakes or committed serious crimes were locked up in there. The Burning Heaven Clan’s personal enemies and those who did something to incur the Clan’s hatred, were also imprisoned inside the prison. Naturally, there were also a few persons who just had their freedom restricted by the Burning Heaven Clan or were secretly concealed among the people locked up inside the prison. The Dragon Confining Prison had seven floors in total; the lower the floor, the darker and gloomier it would become. Likewise, the lower the floor, the more important people and serious criminals locked up inside them.

“This Dragon Confining Prison is an important place. You are not allowed to trespass!” The moment Yun Che got near the gate of Dragon Confining Prison, a guard disciple blocked his way while warning in a stern voice.

Yun Che took out the command tablet, and raised his head as he said: “By the command of the Eighth Elder, I’m going to the seventh floor of the Dragon Confining Prison in order to take something on the body of the prisoner.”

The guard disciple looked at the command tablet, and nodded his head. Then, he personally led the way ahead: “Please follow me.”

Relying on Fen Mochi’s command tablet, Yun Che stepped inside the Dragon Confining Prison without any fear and danger, just as he wished. Although he had the command tablet, four sword-wielding guards still tagged along with him, closely walking before and behind him as soon as he entered the prison. After all, there were such people locked up inside the Dragon Confining Prison whose discovery by an outsider could cause the establishment of a deep hatred. There were even some “special individuals” who would despise and deride the very sight of common people. For example, core sect individuals that were quietly captured to seize the profound art or secret of some major sects…

And maybe other people like Xiao Lie, whose exposition could cause the Burning Heaven Clan to lose all its dignity, to use as “bait.”

When he entered the Dragon Confining Prison, a pungent stinking smell assaulted his senses. The lower he went, the stronger the stinking smell became, and he couldn’t help showing a scowl on his face. Thinking about his grandfather being locked up in this kind of place, his heart started to fill with fury. He endured his anger and impatience, and continued going downwards along with the guard disciples who were walking with an unhurried pace. After walking through the circular route for a while, they finally reached the seventh floor of Dragon Confining Prison.

Just as he arrived at the seventh floor, Yun Che saw Xiao Lie at first glance. Because he was locked up inside the prison cell that was right in front of the seventh floor’s prison gate.

          1. just look at his companion Jasmine she has killed countless people and is planing to kill bilions once she is back to normal, so it might be normal.

            I don’t have problem when the MC kills people that try to kill him, but if he starts killing people because they say something they don’t like even if it was quite normal thing or because people are just weak, then I am done with that story.

    1. When Yun Che said open your mouth my mind went completely dirty heh. And he’s definitely gonna have a golden profound handle huh, or hell something even stronger!

  1. These are just my thoughts, but I think that soon after this, the heaven sword place will make their move on his wife and odds are he will go to help. If his wife isn’t captured (I rather her not be) then the two of them will probably leave Blue Wind Empire in order to lay low and stay away from the people of the heaven sword place and that’s how the story will continue. What do you guys think?

    1. Yea. There’s nothing left for him in the Blue Wind Empire to make him stronger. So I think that he’ll save Qingyue and the Frozen Cloud Sect and then the two of them will flee Blue Wind Empire for the time being, maybe going to the country that’s ruled by that Phoenix Sect. And then they’ll get in trouble there since he’s also got Phoenix flames and this whole thing will start again. lol.

  2. Thanks for the chapter XD

    And Yun Che should steal all their secret arts -_-

    Even if they aren’t as powerful, he might be able to learn something from them… or maybe use some applications to improve his own abilities, or even have back up abilities to hide himself….

    And that idiot elder is still acting so arrogant….

    1. His fire art (even incomplete) is considered as perfect, and high level technique apart, I doubt the Burning Heaven Art can beat the control earned from the fire god seed. But maybe he can use it to substitute the first moves of his phoenix art (even if I think he will rather go to the phoenix empire to seize it).

      1. Well, maybe he could use them to create different arts. And sometimes, when he’d need to hide his powers, he could use the Burning Heaven flames.

        And maybe if he researches how the profound flames work, he might be able to upgrade the phoenix flames… I mean, those flames are the colors of the weakest level… so what if he learns to apply that logic to phoenix fire to upgrade it….

        Then, if he had blue or purple phoenix flames, his flames would be even more powerful.

        Or if he needed to research new profound movement techniques.

        I mean, knowledge is power, and who knows what applications he could discover from studying different techniques when he has free time (that he thinks he will probably have).

    2. Nah they are thrash
      You’ll undesrtand in the next book
      Also Bruce Lee said that he didn’t fear the man how use 1000 kicks, he fears the man who has used 1000 times the same kick

  3. I wonder other than Xiao Lie who else are imprisoned on that floor. If they are released, the Burning Heaven Clan won’t live long. Major sects and some powerful individuals will gang up on poor Burning Heaven Clan 🙁 There are probably even Frozen Cloud Asgard people among them so Yun Che will have a reason to visit his wife.

    1. I doubt it will change anything. After some time in this prison, most of them are probably cripple or close to be. And by the time other sects learn about it, Yun Che would have already destroyed it.
      And don’t forget it’s xianxia, the only fact a major sect lost part of his power is enough for the other sects to gang on him in order to seize all of their resources or to settle some grudges.

  4. So we’ve come to the end of the pole dancing bunny chapters. When I first saw them I figured that they represented Yun Che just trampling all over Burning Heaven Clan with all of his strength, but now they’re over yet he’s right in the middle of the Clan. Wonder if he’s just going to do a quick escape for now, maybe with another prisoner or so besides his Grandfather that would assist him, or help shame the Burning Heaven Clan even more. That’s my guess, as it seems we’ve had enough action for the moment. Time for some character and plot development! I’m happy he has his little Aunt back, but I’m really reeaaally looking forward to seeing Yun Che’s kid. Hope it’s soonish!

  5. At this point, I’m only reading now because I’ve been reading.

    I hate Yun Che. I can’t like bad people. There are shows and novels where the main character is “bad”, but they have some humanity left over. Yun Che is depraved.

    In this chapter alone:
    1. Yun Che murders two BHC members
    2. Poisons Xiao Lingxi
    3. Continues to damage Chan’er’s vitality

    Now let me make those three points, crimes he committed in just this ONE chapter, more clear because I know some people will defend his actions.

    1. No, it’s not not murder. It’s murder. Yun Che murdered those two BHC members. The two of them could have walked on by and never known the wiser. But Yun Che didn’t let that happen. No, Yun Che sought them out and murdered them in cold blood.

    2. Yes, it’s poison. He put a powder in Xiao Lingxi’s spoon, then literally spoon fed her the poison. What? It’s for her own good? She’d only worry? Why don’t we all just take that approach? Sister’s waiting for an acceptance letter to college? Just slip some sleeping pills in her dinner plate. Dad’s got cancer? Just put Mom in a coma until he’s dead. She’d only worry.

    3. Chan’er does not belong to Yun Che. And he’s treating Chan’er like a tool: to be used and discarded. The only reason Chu Yueli gave Chan’er to Yun Che was to help him find Chu Yuechan. Not to help him in his rescue/revenge.

    Yun Che is a sociopath and commits crimes left, right, and center. I’ll again bring it up: Yun Che’s a rapist.

    But you know what? Until now, I kind of forgot the worst thing he’s ever done. He’s a mass murderer. Yun Che’s killed MILLIONS of people. That’s right. Yun Che’s best friends with Adolf Hitler. They’ve both killed millions.

    1. Hahaha i can only imagine what you would think of Chu Feng, at first i tought it was a troll but then i read your ”name” the same guy who is b*tching about rape some chapters ago huh and ”At this point, I’m only reading now because I’ve been reading.” WTF… you say all that but still reading… in my case when i see a mc that i ”hate” like you said i drop the novel,mangá or whatever right there and like i would waste my time reading something with a mc that pisses me off =/

      1. Chu Feng has some amount of moral character. He’s also committed rape but it was against someone who had done something against him. Not exactly an eye-for-an-eye but better than Yun Che. Chu Feng also apparently waits for someone to screw him before he screws them back. Seems pretty manufactured at times, but hey, moral character upheld.

        I find it very hard to believe that there’s no story in which you continue onwards, only to find out what happens. Happened to me for Bleach after the Hueco Mundo Arc, still read it today. Happened to me for Harry Potter, book 5. I remember because J.K. Rowlings got the memo that caps lock was cruise control for cool and Harry’s voice started to change. Still finished books 6 and 7. Sword Art Online turned stale around episode 8. Still finished out the entire series.

        It’s very hard for a story to completely jump the shark for me. Once you’re invested, you want to see it through until the end.

        P.S. Is there something wrong about bitching about rape?

        1. Let’s see if you will have the same opinion about Chu Feng in few months but this time i agree with you he is one of my favorites mcs, about the rape there isn’t nothing wrong with that but remembering said rape every single time you coment is annoying…

    2. Normally I don’t do this but whatever.
      Here’s the definition of poison from Merriam-Webster:

      “a substance that can cause people or animals to die or to become very sick if it gets into their bodies especially by being swallowed
      : something (such as an idea, emotion, or situation) that is very harmful or unpleasant”

      What Yun Che gave to Little Aunt will neither kill her, nor harm her. It’s just putting her to sleep. That’s not poison, that’s a drug.

      If you don’t like it, don’t read it. If you still choose to read it, then don’t tell everyone about it. You’re not exactly saying anything new here.

      1. Poison and drug are interchangeable terms depending on the dosage and who you ask.

        Yes, I realize that Yun Che gave Xiao Lingxi the date rape drug… and I just realized the irony.

        But yeah, saying Yun Che drugged her is so much better than saying he poisoned her.

        “If you don’t like it, don’t read it. If you still choose to read it, then don’t tell everyone about it.”
        My response:
        If you don’t like it, don’t read it. If you still choose to read it, then don’t tell everyone about it.

    3. Seriously? Firstly, we’ve known that Yun Che’s body count was astronomical since the prologue. If that bothered you, how the hell have you made it past chapter 50? Secondly, the biggest sign of sociopathic tendencies is lack of any kind of empathy and inability to maintain long lasting intimate relationships. The reason Yun Che is continuously coming into conflict with others is because he does whatever it takes to protect his loved ones, and these people keep picking a fight with him. He is capable of empathy, maintaining a long lasting relationship, and the reason he does the things he does means the other signs of sociopathic tendencies don’t apply to him. Third, HE IS AT WAR WITH THE BURNING HEAVEN CLAN. WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK THAT MEANS? They will try to kill him if they have the chance. Say soldiers of your country have the chance to ambush scouts of soldiers that your country is at war with. They have an overwhelming advantage and shoot them in the back. Is that evil? Yes, most definitely. But that is war. It isn’t glorious. It isn’t honorable. It is repaying evil with evil until the will of one side or the other breaks. This is the only way Yun Che can retrieve his grandfather. That’s why I support it. If he didn’t do everything he could to protect his family when they’re in danger, then this story wouldn’t be worth reading for most of us. I really think you should go ahead and give up the ghost on this one, and just drop the story if you dislike the protagonist so much.

      1. “we’ve known that Yun Che’s body count was astronomical since the prologue”
        That was the prologue and was the back story. I didn’t expect the author to embrace his sociopathy.

        “the biggest sign of sociopathic tendencies is lack of any kind of empathy and inability to maintain long lasting intimate relationships”
        There are many different definitions of sociopathy. The broadest way to describe sociopathy is a different sense of right and wrong from the average person. Yun Che kills people, rapes people, drugs people, scams people, scars people, and a whole plethora of other things. And he thinks he’s in the right while doing these things. I’d say his sense of right and wrong is fairly off the mark.

        “The reason Yun Che is continuously coming into conflict with others is because he does whatever it takes to protect his loved ones, and these people keep picking a fight with him.”
        Protecting loved ones is a given, who’d disagree with that? However, I don’t really see it as people picking a fight with Yun Che. It’s more along the lines of Yun Che finding the most arrogant people on the entire continent, and then purposefully antagonizing them. Yun Che even admits it. He tries to force himself to become stronger by putting restrictions on himself.

        “He is capable of empathy”
        Lacking empathy is a sign of psychopathy.

        “HE IS AT WAR WITH THE BURNING HEAVEN CLAN. WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK THAT MEANS?”
        War crimes are a thing. Just because you’re at war, it doesn’t mean the participants aren’t human. And your soldier scout analogy doesn’t really apply. The two BHC guys were small fries that are no match for Yun Che.

        “This is the only way Yun Che can retrieve his grandfather.”
        The biggest problem I had was that Yun Che didn’t have to kill them to get what he wanted. He just consciously chose to do so. How hard is it to knock the two BHC guys out? Takes what, an extra 5 minutes of effort to knock them out and hide them? I mean, he’s got the date rape drug. Yun Che’s disregard for human life is what I don’t like about his character.

        “Just drop the story if you dislike the protagonist so much.”
        If only life were so easy… I even finished Coiling Dragon. There were what, 25 books in that series? I started to get turned off at around book 10. Still finished it.

        1. “And he thinks he’s in the right while doing these things”
          — Doesn’t he admit that he is an extremely selfish person? (Chapter 332)
          “Yun Che didn’t have to kill them to get what he wanted.”
          — He wants to completely eradicate the BHC, otherwise they would keep trying to kill him or his family. (His opinion)
          “Yun Che’s disregard for human life”
          — In the world he lives in, the value of human life is close to zero. The strong live, the weak die : law of the jungle. Don’t most Xianxia novels follow this principle?

        2. I was going to further my arguments after your response, but that last part pretty much told me it’s pointless. What can you do for the mouse that continuously chooses the option that shocks it, knowing what’s coming?😕

        1. Clearly your sheltered bringing up didn’t taught you about horrors of the past or what was the norm in the past.

          Hell if i war were to break out you’d be first to suffer the worst of it, unable to fight, unable to stand for yourself at the mercy of people who want to kill you and rape your family. You’re everything that’s wrong with modern world. Self righteous omega.

        2. What kczz15 said is right. It’s like complaining when they almost died when they ate a peanut butter sandwich fully knowing they are very allergic to peanut.

          What do you expect this novel and the rest of xianxia contains? Pillow fighting until the night is over?

          Regarding the killings, though not directly said, there was a time when he forgives his enemies but only to be attacked later. Hell, how did he knew that someone is two-faced or with hidden killing intent if not from his experience? Remember his old life where his master is very kind yet was chased by the “righteous” people/sect?

        3. The ones who proclaim themselves to be smart are often the least intelligent, since they don’t even know of the things they are ignorant about and incorrectly assume they know everything. Intelligent people however realise there is always much to learn and don’t wantonly go around declaring themselves as ‘smart’ as a result.

          1. I was only stating that I was smart relative to the person who called me stupid.

            Honestly though, the idea of proving that I’m smart over the internet is a dumb idea. Hence why I didn’t try and only stated that I was smart. (again, relative to the person who called me stupid)

        4. That being said though and reading through your original comment again I can only facepalm at how absurdly stupid it is.
          You have no semblance of rationality or logic, your sense of justice and moral compass are twisted, you’re reading something every day you apparently hate just so you can come to the comments and repeatedly force your worthless opinion down our throats about how much you hate the story for various ridiculous reasons and you seem to believe only you can be right on the subject.

          I honestly, genuinely hope you go play in traffic and get hit by a bus, just so we won’t have to witness your worthless bilge any more because I for one am sick of being exposed to your ‘opinions’ every other chapter.

          1. @PartlySane:
            Seriously, what’s the point of saying that now? He’s been doing this for 150 chapters and will get replies to his inane drivel calling him out as an idiot regardless of what I say or do, so why try and stop feeding him now?

          2. Isn’t there a youtube video that you should be injecting your crap into?

            I was actually going to comment on the crap you’ve been spewing but why feed a troll?

    4. The poisoning of LingXi and the abuse of Chan’er did get on my nerves, too, but for the first one remember that the Burning Heaven Clan members are all out to murder him.

      Still, I think he’s pretty mild compared to say, Chu Feng. Regardless, complaining about a unnecessarily violent Xianxia hero is like complaining about Shounen heroes getting crazy powerups from nakama power. It gets pointless. The only Xianxia I’ve finished so far is Coiling Dragon and even though Linley also did some questionable stuff, at the end he had pretty much mellowed down, so I’m hopeful for both ATG and MGA.

      1. poison? pfft letting her sleep there or leaving her alone in dark cave which is good for her? a doctor knows it better.
        He also gave medicine to chan’er and was also guilty for using it in emergency other MC would pay no attention to mount most of time besides which is more important to him his family or some monster mount? seriously…

    5. Although the treatment of Lingxi and of Chan’er did make me shudder a bit, I think it’s justified. The entire Burning Heaven Clan is out to kill him.

      Still, I think that complaining about questionably violent Xianxia heroes is like complaining about nakama power in shounen. It’s a part of the genre, so it’s a pointless complaint.

      Coiling Dragon had Linley mellowing out, so I hope this and MGA have their MCs mellowing out as they grow older, too.
