Chapter 356 – The Sword Saint’s Anger

Just when Yun Che had left Bluefire City and departed towards Blue Wind Imperial City, the shadow of a person silently appeared in skies above the Burning Heaven Clan.

Fen Juechen had already left, and a deathly silence hung in the air within the Burning Heaven Clan. The grounds were left in ruins and strewn with the bodies of the dead, the surrounding air was overflowing with a rotten and charred stench, as though it had recently experienced a catastrophic calamity. Occasionally, one or two brave souls would approach the area in order to scout for news, though upon glimpsing the calamitous ruins of the Burning Heaven Clan, their entire bodies would tremble in fear without exception, sweating profusely as they left hurriedly, and none dared to venture near the site.

“Alas, in the end I arrived a step too late.”

The shadow of the person in the sky gazed down upon the ruins and remained silent for a long time. At last, he let out a lingering gasp, causing an oppressing yet boundless aura to follow the sound of his gasp, discharging downwards from the sky, and enveloping the entire Burning Heaven Clan. In a split second, the flow of air halted, causing even the blackened ashes in the sky to remain stagnant, as though time had become fixed in place.

“Such immense strength, if it was a righteous person, it would have been a boon to the Blue Wind Empire, yet unfortunately he possesses the heart of a fiend. With such a cruel slaughter that has befallen the entire Burning Heaven Clan, it does constitute a threat to the Blue Wind Empire. And I, will absolutely not stand by idly.”

His gaze shifted towards the north. He did not turn back towards the direction from whence he came, instead, he flew up into the air, streaking towards the north, and in the blink of an eye, appeared countless kilometers away.

————————————————

“…Burning Heaven Clan’s base has already been reduced to a pile of ruins. The Clan Master, Grand Clan Master, the thirty-three Pavilion Masters, twenty-seven Elders, and the entirety of the clan’s disciples… have all perished among the casualties, not a single person survived… or managed to escape… the entire hierarchy of the clan, have all been annihilated… Burning Heaven Clan is utterly finished. Not only has the entire clan been annihilated, it has furthermore been destroyed to such an immeasurably miserable state. The malicious actions of that Yun Che, far outstrips what we imagined…”

“The various external branches of the Burning Heaven Clan in all the large cities have now received the news, and have almost all severed ties with the Burning Heaven Clan at the first opportunity, immediately changing their names thereafter, for fear that Yun Che’s evil scheme would implicate them.”

After hearing this, Xiao Juetian’s body experienced a graver chill. And after hearing the devastation that had befallen the Burning Heaven Clan, even the gaps between his teeth felt a cold chill run through them. He was just like everyone; it never occurred to him that Yun Che’s retaliation would be merciless to such an extent.

He originally thought that Yun Che killing the clan master, as well as the rest of the core members, would be the limit of his reprisal against the Burning Heaven Clan. Never did it occur to him, what Yun Che had wrought, would be a retribution straight from hell.

After personally hearing the truth of the matter, he was immensely shocked. Furthermore, after knowing everything, he undoubtedly felt an even greater sense of foreboding!

Based on Yun Che’s personality, the events that transpired three years ago would not be so easily dispelled.

However, this was a result of Xiao Kuangyun’s own personal machinations. If he were to bear the pain of abandoning his sole progeny from his first wife, and take the initiative towards handling matters with Yun Che, then the matter could be resolved peacefully. Moreover, reaching a compromise with someone capable of completely destroying the Burning Heaven Clan was not something too humiliating.

However, Grand Sect Master Xiao Wuqing had been domineering and uninhibited all his life; as someone who placed the glory of the sect above his own life, he would never allow such a thing to happen. He had instead chosen to let Grand Elder Xiao Wuyi bring along the Xiao Sect’s forbidden weapon, to aid the Burning Heaven Clan in eliminating Yun Che… and as a result, they had completely lost all chance at amicality!

“Sect Master, what should we do?” The elderly man beside Xiao Juetian enquired: “Our Xiao Sect has never feared any external threats, yet this Yun Che, absolutely should not be underestimated. He has the capability to annihilate the entire Burning Heaven Clan in just a matter of a few short days, which means…”

“There’s no need to harp on it anymore.” Xiao Juetian’s chest heaved, as he grasped both his hands tightly, and duly announced: “If Yun Che was only powerful in strength, if he does come here, we can have a fight to the death with him. Yet… his methods, are unexpectedly merciless and extreme! Merely just by kidnapping his two relatives, who were eventually safely rescued, led to the clan’s entire destruction! There’s not much to choose between the two when comparing the strength of the Xiao Sect and the Burning Heaven Clan… Second Uncle has also fallen at the hands of Yun Che. Him annihilating Burning Heaven Clan, means he certainly has the capability to annihilate our Xiao Sect… this is a terrifying fact that is undeniable!”

All the Pavilion Masters completely quietened down, and the only sounds that could be heard were from the rapid beats of everyone’s disordered hearts.

“We must absolutely not encounter the disaster that has befallen the Burning Heaven Clan!” Xiao Juetian turned his body, with his gaze fixed upon everyone, “If Yun Che arrives, do not engage him in battle at all costs! If we can sue for peace, even if we have to completely lose our dignity, we have to seek that end at all costs. If we do need to engage in combat in the end… then bring all the Heaven Decimating Bombs, and we shall go down in flames together with him! We absolutely cannot let our Xiao Sect become the next Burning Heaven Clan!”

“Sect Master, there is actually no need to be so pessimistic.” Xiao Boyun took a step forward, and said: “Yun Che’s strength is indeed universally shocking, yet within the Blue Wind Empire, the person who can kill him does exist. And the person who has the ability to kill him… based on the recent report that just came in, as of last night, has left the Heavenly Sword Villa unaccompanied.”

Xiao Juetian’s consciousness shook: “You mean… Sword Saint Ling Tianni?”

“That’s right!” Xiao Boyun nodded his head: “Ling Tianni has been upright and plainspoken all his life, treating evil with utmost animosity. Moreover, he had once been friends with Fen Yijue. He had been in seclusion for close to ten years, not treading into the mundane world. Yet he left the Heavenly Sword Villa in a hurry the previous night, most likely in an attempt to rescue the Burning Heaven Clan that was in peril. Unfortunately, he was too late. If he had seen the devastation of the Burning Heaven Clan, on one hand he would feel a sense of guilt, and on the other… feel an extreme rage against Yun Che’s fiendish methods. Both reasons would give sufficient cause to hunt down Yun Che! Perhaps, Ling Tianni is already in the midst of hunting Yun Che at the moment.”

Xiao Boyun’s words brought much relief to Xiao Juetian’s expression. He added in a low voice: “Very well… if the truth is as such, Yun Che will undoubtedly die! Yun Che suffered heavy wounds in his exchange with Fen Yijue before escaping, which is sufficient proof that his strength is not much stronger compared to Fen Yijue, yet even ten Fen Yijues combined are no match for the Sword Saint. If the Sword Saint has truly left the Heavenly Sword Villa in order to aid the Burning Heaven Clan’s plight, then… he will definitely personally go forth to punish Yun Che!”

——————————————————

News of Burning Heaven Clan’s destruction engulfed the entire Blue Wind Empire like a furious storm, sending the Blue Wind Empire to rise up in an earthquake-like uproar. This literally became the most shocking, most horrifying set of news that every Blue Wind citizen had heard in their lives. As they became more shocked then they had ever been in their lives, they were overwhelmed with horror and left incredulous.

On one side, was an aloof and remote, legendary clan that had stood tall for a millennium.

On the other, was a youth who was just nineteen years of age.

This nineteen year old youth, what he has wrought, literally became what could be compared to as a truth that defied the heavens, which was both hard to believe and accept.

Regardless of how deep the desire for revenge, he had actually annihilated the entire hierarchy of the Burning Haven Clan. Only a demon would resort to such methods and have such a vicious heart… How could it have been possibly done by a nineteen year old youth!

Blue Wind Imperial City became bustling with excitement, as every corner was debating on the topic of the Burning Heaven Clan’s annihilation. The two words “Yun Che” could be heard at all four corners. Furthermore the external branch of the Burning Heaven Clan within the imperial city had already closed its doors off. At the main door, what previously was venerated as a treasure, the “Burning Heaven” sign, that was a symbol proved that they were recognized by the Burning Heaven Clan had long been taken down and destroyed to pieces. In a short period of time after, it was replaced by a new sign that read “Esteemed Cloud Clan”… this new clan name, revealed the fear of Yun Che and the need to be cordial with him.

Yun Che had been travelling on the Snow Phoenix Beast throughout his journey. As he flew over the skies above Blue Wind Imperial City, he captured the attention of countless pedestrians who stopped in their tracks and looked up, crying out in alarm. He continued flying into the skies above the Blue Wind Imperial Palace, and as he reached the Moon Embracing Palace within the imperial palace, he summoned the Snow Phoenix back, and gracefully landed from the skies.

“Ah… who is it!”

“Just as he landed, a female’s astonished voice cried out behind him. Yun Che turned his body around, and saw a pale-faced palace maid.

“Ah! Young… Young Master Yun!”

The first time Yun Che came to the Moon Embracing Palace, he saw this very palace maid, thus, it was natural that he would be recognized by her. The moment she saw his face, she cried out in a voice that was three times louder than her astonished voice previously. The expression on her face was a mix of shock, admiration… and also what looked obviously like fear.

To slaughter over seventy thousand people within the Burning Heaven Clan through such merciless methods, made the bodies of everyone overwhelmed with shock as their whole body trembled in fear at the thought of it.

Yun Che took in the entirety of the palace maid’s expression. He nodded, and he expressed with a hint of impatience: “Where is the princess, her royal highness? Uh… you seem to be a bit afraid of me?”

“No… not really… it’s not true” Under Yun Che’s direct gaze, the palace maid at that moment started babbling incoherently. Facing the character in front of her eyes whose exploits have become legendary, her natural instincts were frozen in fright. She didn’t dare to directly look at Yun Che any further, urgently looked towards the Moon Embracing Palace and shouted: “Your Highness, Young Master Yun… Young Master Yun has arrived.”

Following the palace maid’s cry out, a figure dressed in a light green long dress, with a delicate and exquisite shadow like a swiftly flying butterfly rushed out. Upon seeing Yun Che, her entire smart looking countenance was overwhelmed with pleasant surprise, and from her mouth came a voice of utmost joy: “Litte Che!”

Xiao Lingxi threw herself forward, and swooped into Yun Che’s embrace, hugging him tightly. In his embrace she could hardly contain her happiness and was jumping with joy: “You finally returned… Ah? Have you suffered any injuries? Did you hurt yourself anywhere?”

Being able to meet Xiao Lingxi there, was of no surprise nor odd to Yun Che. Before he had arrived at the imperial palace, he already had at least seventy percent certainty and conviction that Ling Jie would bring Xiao Lie and Xiao Lingxi to safety at Cang Yue’s side. He held Xiao Lingxi’s waist, and laughed as he said: “Don’t worry, I do not have a single wound on myself. If you do not believe my words, I will strip off my clothes for your inspection later.”

“Uuu!” Xiao Lingxi used her hands and lightly pinched him, pouting her lips as she said: “Humph, you’re teasing me again…” However, she could only maintain her feigned anger for a short while before it was replaced by joy: “Hee, I always knew you would keep to your words. We’ve arrived here long ago, Dad and I were worried to death over these few days. However, it was fortuitous that the imperial palace had many interesting places, and also the princess herself had accompanied me, allowing me to play here happily.”

It was at this moment that Cang Yue appeared, dressed from head to toe in royal garments, looking splendid beyond comparison. Looking at the two in each other’s embrace, she laughed lightly and walked over: “Junior Brother Yun, you have finally returned.”

“Sorry for worrying Senior Sister.” Yun Che lightly smiled as he said: “ And to trouble you with taking care of my grandfather and little aunt.”

“Your kinsmen, are of course also my kinsmen.” After Cang Yue finished her sentence, she suddenly felt a sense of obliquity, as her snow-white countenance flushed red, and became flustered and she started a new topic: “Grandfather Xiao is currently at my father’s side, and with Uncle Dongfang’s protection, he is perfectly safe and sound. That said… have you seen Chu Yuechan already?”

Yun Che’s breathing slowed, as he shook his head lightly: “No, she wasn’t at Frozen Cloud Asgard, and no one has any idea as to her whereabouts.”

Cang Yue’s pink lips slightly parted, and she added softly in a consoling tone: “Do not worry, the Fairy of Frozen Beauty has the strength of a Throne, within the Blue Wind, no one can harm her. The Blue Wind Empire’s domain is small, you will surely find her in no time. I will also muster the entire palace’s resources to aid in the search… that said, has the Burning Heaven Clan… really been… annihilated by you?”

“Mn.” Yun Che nodded his head without hesitation: “Because they had provoked what they should never have provoked! This matter, even if the entire world bears a grudge or admonishes me, I will not feel any regret! Senior Sister, Little Aunt… do you two blame me?”

Cang Yue’s expression instantly became extremely conflicted. Just when she was about to speak, she had instead heard Xiao Lingxi, who lifted her face: “Even though taking lives is wrong… if it was Little Che, the people he has killed are definitely those that should be killed, who are bad people! As such, I do not blame you.”

Xiao Lingxi was a person who had never before taken a life, and even had limited experience interacting with other people. Her temperament, was as emollient as the leaves and flowers. Yet these words which were said, were spoken as it should be by rights, filled with self-confidence and justice. Tens of thousands of lives suffered a massacre, yet she stood resolute… No, one should say that she naturally believed that Yun Che was right. Cang Yue could not help but questioned: “You… why would you think so?”

“Because Little Che is the best person in this entire world.” XIao Lingxi blinked her bright pupils that resembled black glorious gemstones, and answered without a hint of hesitation.

In that moment, Cang Yue stared with her gazed transfixed.

All of a sudden, she immediately understood why Yun Che had toiled so hard these past three years, and why he had borne a burning rage that led to the annihilation of the Burning Heaven Clan after she was abducted…

His relationship with Xiao Lingxi, was long past one of trust and reliance; it was one that practically had one’s life integrated into the other’s. Especially with the way Xiao Lingxi treated Yun Che; even if she felt that the entire world was lying to her, she would wholeheartedly put her trust in Yun Che; even if the entire world treated him as a demon, she would still believe that he was the most kind-hearted person in the world.

This deep and mysterious, yet subtle feelings, caused Cang Yue to sincerely feel envious. She knew, in this world, there would never be someone who could take Xiao Lingxi’s place in Yun Che’s heart.

Cang Yue lightly smiled. Under Xiao Lingxi’s gaze, those little complicated feelings that had dwelled in her heart disappeared without a trace. She looked at Yun Che… and saw a man that made her feel immense pride… in two short years, he had progressed from a frail youth, whom had his life threatened by the Xiao Sect that hunted him, to a person capable of loftily holding up the entire Blue Wind Empire.

It was at this moment, an apathetic and serious voice suddenly rang out from the distant skies:

“Yun Che, because of your personal grievance, you would go so far as to annihilate the entire Burning Heaven Clan. Your methods are merciless, and your heart is malicious. Both the gods and people are outraged, and you deserve heavenly punishment to wipe you out. An old man like me will seek justice for the heavens on this day, and personally send you on the road to the yellow springs to pay your debt… show yourself to me!”

This voice seemingly transmitted from across the sky, echoing through the imperial city’s every street, every corner, and caused the entire city to fall into complete silence. Everyone raised their heads up high, shocked by the scene of an empty sky, and attempted to locate the origin of that voice.

“Ah? What… what was that sound? What he shouted, seemed to be for Little Che.” Xiao Lingxi turned her body and looked around. The words said by the voice, caused her to feel a sense of panic.

“This person… who can he be?” Cang Yue hurriedly grabbed onto Yun Che’s arm, as her face revealed panic. In spite of Yun Che’s annihilation of the Burning Heaven Clan, and intimidating the entire realm, for a person to rush over to seek punishment on him… his strength, was definitely on an extremely frightening level.

“Hmph.” Yun Che snorted indifferently, and very quickly, confirmed the location of the owner of the voice. He nonchalantly said to Cang Yue and Xiao Lingxi: “It seems like a small nuisance has arrived… Give me a moment, I will take care of it right away.”

Just he was about to move, Jasmine’s voice rang out in his head: “Do not go over there! If you do, that would be seeking death!”

“What!?” Yun Che froze in his steps, as his eyebrows furrowed.

  1. I thought they had passed the point where jasmines seal on her profound strength would have been lifted. Worst case scenario, she’s forced to instant kill the old man and waste half a years worth of recovery time.

    1. its said at minimum it would last a year, but could even last a century or more in total, shes got no control over the time it’ll last and couldn’t control a way to set a time.

    1. How so? While it was a bit overboard for Yun Che to kill the new initiates among the elders, I don’t see how most of the opinions regarding the matter is wrong.
      To make a long story short, nobody there was innocent. They had the choice to leave for a whole 3 day period, yet they chose to stay with the Clan.
      Say what you will, but nobody there was innocent. And if they were, they were clearly too stupid to live.

      That’s like choosing to stay in a city that constantly gets bombed by airplanes. You know what you’re dealing with, you made your choice. And that choice says something.

      1. They’re guilty for not leaving they’re home? That’s bullshit. That aunt of his is stupid and ignorant. The disciples did nothing wrong. They just stayed with their family. That makes them guilty? Who was the idiot who thought this? They stayed with their family and they had some form of hope each time. Once the formation, the grand sec leader and grand elder, and then the heaven decimating orbs. They did nothing wrong for staying there and believing and can in no way be guilty. Yun Che does what he has to do. He in no way in hell should consider himself good or just. Nor does he, he understands he’s done horrible deeds for the purposes of protecting his family. He kills when he needs to and he does it out of necessity. He knows he’s horrible. But that aunt is an idiotic bitch when considering him to be kind. She should know it was for her sake and she should be grateful. But to call him kind when innocent people were killed? The disciples of that clan were not involved, yet they died because of her. Calling him the most kind-hearted makes her a true bitch. He’s merely a person who does what he has to protect that which he cares about. She also asked him to save that one person. This truly exemplifies her ignorance because he’ll create future troubles.

      2. Yes, they stayed at home, now they’re guilty. Right? Since they’re guilty Yun Che can kill them and can’t be considered evil, right? He can’t be considered a good person, he just does what he has to. He is evil but he is doing what he has to and that is it. Many of the disciples probably did deserve to die. Yet some of them were definitely innocent and did nothing wrong. That aunt also is an ignorant idiot. Yun Che did that for her sake but she called him kind-hearted. It’s pretty much because of her they died.

        1. i see no one replied to your statement,, it showed that these people were absolute ignorant thrash,,,

          I can understand Yun Che’s actions now,, he claimed he was evil amongst evil himself,, but, that F*KING AUNT ,,, REALLY ??

          How could she call him kind ,, even ” THE BEST PERSON IN THE WORLD ” ??

          WHAT THE ACTUAL F*CK IS THAT SHIT,,, OH MYY,, i cant even,

          1. It’s because he killed with reason. And frankly, this battle was war.

            He actually tried multiple times to leave them a way out which they didn’t take -_-

        2. They died because they tried to kidnap her, so it shouldn’t be blamed as her fault.

          And this isn’t like our world. In this world battles and stuff are much more common, in this world, there isn’t a such social justice or even actual laws.

          And in the end, this was a war started by Burning Heaven clan and the vast majority of the people weren’t innocent. Yun Che left them many chances yet they didn’t take it, and in the war where both sides were trying to wipe the other out, they had a chance to leave and escape. They didn’t take that chance.

          And frankly, the majority of them would have been happy with all the horrible things that happened if Yun Che wasn’t strong enough to destroy them.

          And for the Little Aunt, she was just being a kind person when it came to sparing the guy that saved her twice (and one of the times was rape); and Yun Che being the best was just how much she valued and believed in him, and knowing that his action wasn’t without reason.

      3. While I’m sure many were actually innocent and I don’t really agree with you at that part, but the rest I truly approve of. What’s up with these guys anyway? They almost get annihilated several times, they had a lot of chances to run, but then, when one of the strongest in the clan was killed and the strongest was so injured he couldn’t defend himself anymore and they had lost most of their other elders… What do they do in that period of almost two days when he’s healing himself to deal the finishing blow? Yeah, they let all that worthless filler trash STAY in the clan, those that have such low cultivation that they’d die if he’d fart in their immediate proximity, instead of taking a safe bet and letting them leave, they could’ve gone FAR in almost two days and he sure as hell wouldn’t have chased them(even if he chased them, they could’ve split up into several groups, like hell he is going on a manhunt for them, the most important ones were the strong ones). What was the problem, really? It’s not as if they, who are utterly worthless in terms of combat capability, wouldn’t be able to return a day or two after yun che was defeated(if that was going to happen) and if he wasn’t defeated, they would save several tens of thousands of lives from their clan. Instead, all of them went rushing straight into him like flies into fire, I’m really flabbergasted at this and I don’t know if people of such intelligence should be allowed to live…

        So much for the elders having lived up to several hundred years, clearly they felt it was way better if everyone died together, oh, no, wait, they asked him to let those disciples and weak guys go in exchange for committing suicide, seems they actually wanted them to live. Well, no matter, it’s not like the world lost anything if people like that died…

  2. I don’t understand why people are defending his actions. He acknowledges himself that he’s a demon with no regrets. I’d have more respect for the story if by now Yun Che had just straight up turned into the villain and the world had forsaken him. Have some tangible consequences to actions.

    Eh, should’ve expected all of this. In his past life he was already a mass-murderer, poisoning his way across the continent and just rampantly slaughtering nearby towns cause of the crime of being nearby. I just wish the writer had the balls to make him a full MC villain instead of this self-righteous bullshit.

    1. If I was writing this story from this point on Xiao Lingxi would be terrified and traumatized by what she heard happened to BHC. She refuses to see him and runs away with grandpa. Cang Yue realises that yun che has so many other women and that his love means nothing since it lacks devotion. Their relationship is nearly shattered but she doesn’t push him away. As cang yue grows up her feelings for yun che fade, she is eternally grateful because he saved her father but she no longer feels romance for him.

      1. I don’t think the entire world needs to forsake Yun Che. I’m not saying he was morally correct, and I’m not saying he could not do things better — but, when it comes to this setting? Yun Che is no grand devil. The “young masters” of his generation are by far much, much worse than he is in the head.

        The narrative kept bombarding at us how evil and vile Yun Che is, and I don’t understand why.
        It’s clear that when you compare Yun Che to the boys of the sects, he’s a saint in comparison.

        The only reason anyone will forsake Yun Che, is because they’re afraid of him. Nothing else.
        This whole emo narrative “oh I am such a demon, I am such a badarse” is so bloody moronic. He’s no grand demon or vile devil, he’s a barbaric dumbarse like everyone else in this setting.
        Even though I completely agree with you when it comes to Yun Che’s stupid Harem of emotionally challenged heroines, do note that their world’s ethics is completely bunkers and lopsided.

        It doesn’t matter what Yun Che does. No matter what, someone will always want to kill him. It’s a Catch-22 scenario.
        If it’s not this Grand sword-guy, it’ll be someone else. This is how this setting of dumbarse barbarians with a brain of a peanut work.

  3. Such arrogance with a puny amount of strength lil che? A small nuisance? Fix that attitude of yours mate. Killing the entire clan was completely undeserved. The clan/pavillion masters/elders? sure they were a pack of awful bastards. But the disciples? they hadn’t done a damn thing mate. You deserve whatever’s coming your way but plot armour will protect you handily from whatever may come.

    1. yeah, he does deserve this, but i still think what he did, he did it learning from experience, in his previous life, his master gave mercy but it was all for naught, they hunted his master down and him in the end, he couldn’t even think of making the same mistake twice.

      1. ^This. Who would want to experience it for a third time? Showing mercy to enemies where everyone wants to kill you? The best way to detriment future vengeance is to instill great fear to those kind of people.

        Remember, in their world, there is no Judicial Court. Disputes can only be decided with their fists.

    2. Law of the jungle man. Your soft view on ethics don’t work in this world. It’s all about setting an example. We saw what happened when YC spared BHC. Next time he might not have the chance to regret it.

  4. Is it weird that I’m actually rooting for Ling Tianni? Yun Che really has gone too far. I hope Tianni beats some sense into him, takes him prisoner and locks him up. If this was the last chapter of ATG then I can only accept it as Yun Che getting what he deserves.

    Yun Che acts like he’s some big badass, having killed millions of people in his past life. What he needs to also remember is that the mirror gave him a second chance at life. He went BACK in time, this life is before his other life. None of those people he killed are actually dead. His hands aren’t stained with blood. His karma was reset, he doesn’t need to act like he’s already a demon.

    1. I don’t think that’s how it works though. Just because he hasn’t yet killed a million people doesn’t mean he doesn’t remember doing it. Plus, we still don’t know the full circumstances behind when he had to kill all those people.

  5. uh , i dont think all of your hatred on YC is justifiable .

    he clearly states that the million that died on his hands aint in vain because he clearly said that his carrying all the burden right ?

    and about HBC i think its natural to pull all the roots because you know this is a cultivation world , some or most people there in a clan has filial piety(not sure if its filial or something along those line)
    so even if he did spare all the disciples do you think that they wont get revenge if they have the power ? or like back stabbing him at a critical point ?
    you should know that his action are all based on his selfishness and he really is a selfish person that wont hesitate to kill innocent people for this love ones .

    and FYI even if BHC’s disciples are innocent against YC , you should know that they are clearly not so innocent about normal people . almost if not all of them are clearly arrogant becoz of BHC’s fame lol

    PS. i srsly dont think you should really bring your or our ethics or moral codes in their world because it clearly states that its a world where power rules and its a freaking law of the jungle . isnt that crystal clear? srsly lol

      1. Well, it was.. That will cause some headache. MC will learn once again for the 3rd time that sparing enemies is indeed a bad idea. RIP Little Aunt, RIP Grandpa…

        “He can’t kill me anyway…”
        No but he can kill those around you just like you did to him.
        It’s just stupid.

  6. I look at comments and all i see is:

    “This guy how evil he is, he killed a bunch of people who were trying to kill him for months and even went as far as abducting his family. How dare he!”

    See i live in a country where people go to jail for defending themselves from robbery and attacks.. now i understand how that idiotic law passed.

  7. Fellow Daoists, I mean fellow humanity ? xD

    I understand that some people are against Yun Che’s annihilating the entire sect, but think again for a second, it is hard to understand Yun Che’s mindset because we didn’t live for two lives (well if you believe in reincarnation, we can’t remember our past life) nor living in that cruel universe.

    On our world it was unlikely that this thing is going to happen, because in our world when you are part of some sect or whatever organization you are in , for example school; and you’ve violate some rules, then the principal of your school said that when you enter your class, you can’t seat nor talk, you must become like a living ghost. I am sure you are not an Idiot to really follow this, I mean who the heck going to follow the principal of the school if this is your punishment.

    But if the principal of the school you are in, patriarch, sect master or whatever in the word where Yun Che was belonging to called, if he said you must abduct and kill this kids family, whether you like it or not, you are going to follow his/her
    command, simply because he is your leader.

    You see the differences between the two ? The differences are simply that the second one loyalty is much stronger and hard to imagine on our mindset nowadays. if Yun Che really didn’t killed the entire sect, other’s maybe going to call him a hero maybe the Sword Saint will thank him, but it is much likely that the burning heaven sect’s disciple will be vengeful in the future, just imagining that all those disciple, maybe not all, will be like a shadow lurking behind Yun Che’s back waiting for the right time to come,

    so the question is Yun Che’s annihilating the entire sect evil? yes it is, but it was a necessary evil.

    conclusion in the end is that, the right is the wrong and the winner in the end, and the evil and wrong is the one who perished.

    Sorry for the wrong grammar if there are some, I am not born English speaking person.

  8. thank you for the chapter.
    I don’t like how the writer makes almost all the other strong characters have only one way of reasoning toward yunche. even the ‘upright’ long Gianni has the same reaction. lik every ones in this story has the exact same IQ.
    I really like ATG before especially the ‘competition arc’, but now it’s too repetitive, boring, and stupid.

    1. I know, right?
      It’s like… Nobody even thinks of the possibility that someone who talks thinks about Yun Che might be lying for their own good.
      Instead of ‘Well sh*t, he did something like that, so maybe, just maybe he had… I don’t know, some sort of a reason behind it? I will ask him about that BEFORE making final judgement and statement.’
      But hell no, why bother…

      1. Right, but if there is an opponent too strong for the MC then he either will get a power buff, or the situation is not as serious as it seems. That devilspawn saved the king’s life so he is not THAT evil and the King has connections with the Heavenly Sword Villa and wouldn’t let them hurt the MC.. Not in the Palace at the very least. Aaaand happy end!

        Unfortunately the story gets dumber and dumber. The author throws in random opponents with random excuses that doesn’t seem to be too real and it starts to get irritating and boring. I hope we will get back the old “use your head before taking action” kind of story, because that was far more enjoyable.

      2. Wrong. These people have no intellectual background nor scholastic pursuit. From the day they were born to the day they die, it’s all about ‘cultivation’. It’s all about ‘power’.

        When they reached a certain age, they were given “blades” or rather “guns”. Cultivation is a blade that can kill those without it. At an early age of 10 or perhaps younger, they were given their own sets of “guns and ammunition”. With this kind of life, what do you expect? You think these “children” wouldn’t pull the trigger because ummm…for no reason at all? You’re demanding too much.

        There’s also NO ‘judicial system’ and ‘religion’. Their morals and reasoning is something they learn through experience.

        Just look at OUR world. There are religion. There are laws. There are educational institutions everywhere. Yet more than 85% of the planet’s population comprised of dumb sh*ts have no idea what they’re saying and what they’re doing. Murder, war, robbery, massacre, etc. are still prevalent in certain areas, if not everywhere.

        Yet you question how these fictional people can be this dumb when they have zero educational background and yet have a weapon that can kill and oppress anyone called ‘cultivation’.

  9. atg has definitely gone down the gutter. too bad it had great potential. To those who are criticizing atg, it’s no use because atg is way ahead in raws and the author will never read the comments here. So, atg won’t change

    thanks for the chapter :]

  10. At the main door, what previously was venerated as a treasure, the “Burning Heaven” sign, that was a symbol proved that they were recognized by the Burning Heaven Clan had long been taken down and destroyed to pieces. In a short period of time after, it was replaced by a new sign that read “Esteemed Cloud Clan”… this new clan name, revealed the fear of Yun Che and the need to be cordial with him.

    Hahahaha, Esteemed cloud clan? Couldn’t you make it something else? Like esteemed fire clan, lava clan, molten clan, even firefly clan would be better… But I guess this is their way to avoid him by choosing something unrelated to fire as the name.

    Oh, and this new guy seems like a self-righteous prick that preaches justice and presumptuously considers himself some kind of guard dog of the heavens that can dole out punishment in under the jurisdiction of the heavens… Talk about conceited, haha. Well, he’s probably a nice guy, even if he’s a bit unreasonable he seems to be kind at heart. I think yun che can probably make him reconsider his judgement and refute his arguments. Yun che will be way stronger than him soon enough anyways, so he’s bound to fade into the background again.
