Chapter 402 – Senior Zi

The purple clothed elder stood in place without moving, and did not say anything either, because he wasn’t sure if Yun Che was merely probing about to make it deliberately mystifying or had actually discovered him… If it was the latter, then that would be inconceivable.

At this moment, Yun Che actually spoke once more: “If senior isn’t going to reply, then I’m going to count that as silent approval. For the Black Moon Headquarters to be so successful even now, honesty is inevitably the number one criteria. I believe that senior would not allow a lowly person who would go back on his word to appear in his domain.”

Feng Zhaonan laughed loudly: “Seventh floor senior? Hahahaha! With such a far distance, and it even being the interior of the Black Moon Merchant Guild, let alone a trash like you, even I should not think about probing for any movements inside there. You putting on such an act like that seriously resembles an extremely ridiculous clown.”

Yun Che laughed coldly. Without saying another word, he walked toward the front of a profound array in the eyes of everyone present… He had already roughly understood that this crystal station’s standard for talent; the age of one’s bones, and degree of power… not simply the level of one’s profound strength. If it was in accordance to this standard, then no matter what, he ought to be stronger than this Feng Zhaonan.

Yun Che extended both hands and gathered his energy. “Purgatory” instantly opened as his hands smashed out with “Falling Moon Sinking Star”.

Divine Phoenix Empire had more than five thousand years of history, and the existence of this crystal stage was even older than the Divine Phoenix Empire, which was highly unusual. The might of Yun Che’s strike under the state of Purgatory was absolutely terrible beyond compare, but once it struck atop the profound array, it also did not make any noise as all its force was completely absorbed by the profound array in an instant, without the slightest bit of overflow.

Clang Clang Clang…

The silent crystal pillar suddenly lit up… from red, it almost instantly went straight to blue. The sound of five different colors simultaneous lighting up overlapped, directly shocking the ears of everyone present with a continuous droning noise.

All of the surrounding profound practitioners had a pitiful expression, and were already prepared to see a joke, but the scene before their eyes immediately left them completely dumbstruck, leaving them unable to dare believe their own eyes. The sneer on Feng Zhaonan’s face stiffened instantly, as he involuntarily cried out: “This… this is impossible!”

The ascension of the light on the crystal pillar slowed down, but it still did not stop as it continue upward through the blue pillar and broke through the blue colored boundary as the indigo crystal pillar then lit up.

“Waah!!” Almost all the profound practitioners present let out an involuntary cry… However, the crystal pillar’s light still did not cease, and instead continued to rise higher and higher. The indigo light quickly became an azure color. Then, there was only a “clang” sound…

A purple radiance was released from the highest pillar of light.

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet… All colors lit up, and the entire crystal pillar brightened with the color of the rainbow. Slowly, the violet color spread downwards, gradually engulfing the other colors, making the entire crystal pillar purple. The purple color was preserved for a full ten breaths of time, then slowly scattered. The profound array in front of Yun Che spun at high speed, and then, the shape of a purple colored transfer gate slowly formed. Yun Che’s body, was also radiating a faint purple color.

On the seventh floor of the Black Moon Merchant Guild, the face of the purple clothed elder, who had been standing by the window from the start, fiercely moved. His gazed firmly locked on Yun Che, and it took a good while until he slowly spoke out a few words: “Earth Profound Realm… Inconceivable…”

This grade, was also beyond Yun Che’s expectations. In fact, the crystal stage’s standard judgement of talent did not merely use a person’s age and strength, at the same time, it also compared the power released of those at the same level as well. Yun Che’s profound strength was at the late stages of the Earth Profound Realm, yet he could release a strength comparable to a middle stage Emperor Profound. This was his current strongest, and it could be said that in the entire Profound Sky Continent, none could reach him.

The surrounding profound practitioners were all stupefied on the spot. A profound practitioner that placed in the top fiftieth of Black Fiend Nation’s ranking tournament could only strike out the yellow. Feng Zhaonan was the head disciple of an elder-rank person within the Divine Phoenix Sect, and his blue grade was one that they could never hope to reach for even in their entire lifetimes. Yet this person, who was obviously at the Earth Profound Realm, actually struck out… the illusory, unreal violet!!

This meant that based on the Black Moon Merchant Guild’s judgement, his aptitude was at the very top of the entire Profound Sky Continent! Although there was the level of indigo between violet and blue, this did not represent the disparity in the two levels, rather, the difference was two full planes, two whole worlds! In front of a yellow-colored grade, a blue-colored grade was a transcendent existence that one could not see the summit of. But in front of a purple-colored grade… it was trash, through and through.

“Impossible… Impossible… There must be… be a problem with the profound array… Impossible!” Staring at the purple colored radiance that had yet to disperse, Feng Zhaonan’s entire body shook… Born in Divine Phoenix City, he was even more clear than everyone present on what the purple-colored grade meant. Because within this generation of Divine Phoenix Sect’s profound practitioners, only one person had struck out a purple-colored grade. Even indigo, was a rarity. No matter what, he was unable to accept that a mere Earth Profound Realm from one of the other six nations, someone who was fundamentally not even worthy to be glanced at in his eyes… had actually struck out the violet of legends!

Even though he had lowly muttered out that there must be a problem with the profound array… he was even more clear than everyone present that it was absolutely impossible for there to be a problem with the profound array. It was rumored that these thirty-two profound arrays were made by a Monarch of the Sovereign Profound Realm, and it existed even longer than the Divine Phoenix Empire. How could a problem possible appear on it?

Yun Che turned around, faced Feng Zhaonan, and laughed faintly: “Feng Zhaonan, the results are now in. You ought to not have forgotten the bet we made previously, right? Then what are you standing there for? Why haven’t you kneeled down and kowtowed to your grandfather?!”

“You!” Feng Zhaonan’s complexion became pitch-black… Before now, even if he was beaten to death, he would never believe that a mere, insignificant Earth Profound Realm would strike out a level higher than blue… or even the legendary violet. Let alone a high ranking disciple of the Divine Phoenix Sect, even if it were an ordinary person, it was impossible for one to accept the humiliation of going down on his knees to kowtow, and even calling out grandfather. Otherwise, he would always bear this humiliating mark for his entire life.

“You’re only a trash of only the Earth Profound Realm, how could you strike out the violet!” Feng Zhaonan said with gritted teeth: “There obviously is a problem with the profound array… or maybe you had used some sort of trick! To want me, Feng Zhaonan of the Divine Phoenix Sect to kneel for you… is simply a joke as big as the heavens!”

“Haha.” Yun Che sneered: “Divine Phoenix Sect is known as the number one sect in the world, its might and power is known to be impressive everywhere, and would make people wistful. Never did I expect that not only is this disciple condescending beyond belief and arrogant without scruples, he’s actually a lowly person who would go back on his word. That seriously leaves one greatly disappointed. However, you can’t renege on your bet, as every friend present here are all personal witnesses! If you really do not care about your pathetic face, you can just leave far away with your tail behind your legs. But I don’t know what would happen if this news were to spread throughout the city and pass through your sect’s ears, letting them know that you had lost all of your sect’s face in front of the presence of all the other six nation’s profound practitioners in Black Moon Merchant Guild’s territory. I wonder if they would expel you from Divine Phoenix Sect… Oh, no, Divine Phoenix Sect’s biggest taboo is their bloodline, so they would never drive away a disciple. I guess they would directly do some… house cleaning?”

When Feng Zhaonan had come earlier, the surrounding reverent gazes had made his entire body feel incredibly pleasurable. But now, the surrounding gazes were like daggers boring into his entire body… If he was alone with Yun Che, he would unhesitantly kill Yun Che, letting not a third person know of this. However, not only was this the territory of the Black Moon Merchant Guild, there were also more than ten thousand people here as witnesses. This was the first time in his life that he had been forced in such dire straits.

“In this one generation of my grand and mighty Divine Phoenix Sect, only one person has struck the violet! How could a trash of the Earth Profound Realm like you, be able to strike the violet! There’s obviously a problem with the profound array… What qualifications do you have to make me kneel?! Nobody would ever acknowledge this result! You’re actually even using the name of my sect to scare me? Haha… haha, simply ridiculous!”

Feng Zhaonan laughed loudly as he roared, but it was obvious that he was not confident in his last few words.

At this time, an aged voice suddenly came from above: “Little junior of Divine Phoenix Sect, your arrogance had first brought you trouble, yet you are not willing to admit that you lost your bet and is instead questioning my Black Moon’s profound array!? I’m afraid that if it was your Master, Feng Yunzhi himself, not even he would have that sort of courage!”

This sound was not at all resounding, but every word felt as if mountains were firmly striking at the soul. The level of cultivation that belonged to the owner of the voice was simply unimaginable. Feng Zhaonan raised his head toward the seventh floor of the Black Moon Merchant Guild, his face revealing a deep shock and fear. He said hurriedly: “It’s… it’s Senior Zi! Senior Zi, please calm your anger. This junior… this junior absolutely does not have the intention of questioning the Black Moon Merchant Guild.”

“No? Then is it that there was a problem with my hearing?” The aged voice asked loudly.

Feng Zhaonan’s face immediately became ashen, and he didn’t dare to speak for a long while…

A high ranking disciple from the Divine Phoenix Sect had actually been scared to this extent by the owner of this aged voice. Yun Che was slightly shocked in his heart, he raised his head and spoke: “Junior thanks senior for his fair words.”

“Honesty is the number one principle of my Black Moon Merchant Guild, and we can’t bear to look at despicable people who go back on their word. However, this junior is after all, a Divine Phoenix Sect disciple. If he goes down and kowtows, it would be of the utmost humiliation, which would be extremely inappropriate for the entire Divine Phoenix Sect. To you, it also brings not the least bit of benefit, so you ought to stand back in due course.”

“Senior’s teaching is right.” Yun Che said cheerfully: “Junior only could not take his gaze that looked down and insulted all of us six nation profound practitioners, which is why I wanted him to remember this a bit more.”

His expression became unsightly as he turned to face Feng Zhaonan and said with a beaming smile: “This Black Moon Merchant Guild senior has already plead for mercy in your stead, so of course I’ll have to honor this senior’s reputation… This head of yours, no longer needs to knock on the floor, grandfather, you also do not need to call. But if you just leave like that, then wasn’t this bet made for naught? We, profound practitioners of the other six nations, would also have been scolded by you free of charge! Thus, you had best leave behind a little something! Mn…” Yun Che supported his chin with a hand as his eyes narrowed into slits while he sized up Feng Zhaonan’s entire body: “The clothes you’re wearing is actually not bad, take it off and give it to me… Senior, this junior’s request is not too excessive, right?”

The aged voice transmitted over: “The Phoenix Robe is a Divine Phoenix Sect disciple’s identity. No one outside of the sect would dare copy it, and even more would not dare to wear it. Even though I don’t know what you would use the Phoenix Robe for, compared with your bet, this is merciful enough. Little junior of Divine Phoenix Sect, the other party has already given you a huge concession, do you have any other objections?”

The Phoenix Robe was a Divine Phoenix Sect disciple’s status symbol, taking it off was undoubtedly comparable to tearing one’s face off. However, this outcome was unquestionably a thousand hundred times better than kowtowing. Added with the suppressive might coming from the Black Moon Merchant Guild, how could he even say anything else? Gritting his teeth, he took off the Phoenix Robe, flung it at Yun Che, then quickly changed into another outer clothing. After eyeing Yun Che with a malicious gaze, he left without ever looking back.

“You deeming a person weaker than you as trash means that you would admit defeat in the face of someone stronger, this also means that you are trash, through and through! It was not easy for the Divine Phoenix Sect to use five thousand years to develop to its state today. Even if you do not have the ability to increase your sect’s reputation, you should never think of making a disgrace out of yourself by using your status as a Divine Phoenix Sect disciple, making others hold you in contempt!” Yun Che coldly stated toward Feng Zhaonan’s direction. Then, without caring about Feng Zhaonan’s reaction, he turned around and walked over to that profound array he had struck earlier.

At the moment, the surrounding profound practitioners were looking at Yun Che with gazes filled with deep reverence. None were underestimating him for having the profound strength of an Earth Profound Realm anymore. At the same time, they were deeply thankful, after all, he had helped every of the six nations’ profound practitioners let off some steam in front of that Divine Phoenix Sect disciple. It was just that the imposing manner he used to deal with Feng Zhaonan and also the violet that was struck on the crystal stage, made them lose the courage to approach him in the middle of their reverence and gratitude. As Yun Che walked toward the profound array, the surrounding profound practitioners quickly stepped aside. Their gazes continuously followed him as they watched him walk into the purple colored profound array, and completely disappear within.

The purple colored profound array sent Yun Che to the seventh floor of the Black Moon Merchant Guild… a place that not many of the entire Profound Sky Continent had set foot in.

      1. Don’t forget about Yuanba? maybe he has already reach Tyrant level, or is it emperor level; I don’t remember quite that well (gonna have to read it back, maybe Overlord) but his veins are special so maybe he has already reach one of those levels, that would be awesome!!!

        1. if i remember correctly Yuanba has tyrant profound veins or something that allows him directly reach the emperor realm if his ambitions for strength are high enough.

        2. This is just my personal opinion but I really wouldn’t like it if something like this happened. The side characters are getting a bit too OP and Yun Che really isn’t OP if you look at it from a certain angle. Sure he can defeat people countless realms above him but people are never going to stop trashing him if his profound strength looks like trash. Xia Qingyue-Emperor realm at 17. The Phoenix prince-Emperor realm at 20. I dunno but I find this quite stupid. Don’t mind my rants. This is just me grumbling. Still going to read it though!

          1. don’t forget that they got there through item consumption and other means…they are your typical pay-per-win…if hard work alone were enough little aunt wouldn’t have remained in elementary after all those years of just training
            qingyue got the emperor sth lotus

    1. Yuanba i’m guessing he will show up in this book, little fairy i have my guesses but i hope the author comes with something more creative this time…

  1. we need to lay low in this town for a while… let’s make a scene!
    this is turning into those xanxia that competes in deeck sizes… sigh.. i’m still crossing my finger hoping it’ll get better like the past.
    Thank you very much for the chapter!

    1. He could always change appearance as he did before and wearing his new clothes he could infiltrate the phoenix sect. Its so huge they would not notice him.

    2. You mean, after Yun Che killed dozens of thousands of innocent low level fire disciples, he will keep his calm in this town ? For old times sake … let’s face it. ATG is like MGA … removing the roots, face and relatives above all. If you are looking for mercy, you are not gonna get it in ATG.

      1. with all the people yun che has killed will those thousands of people matter since they can be considered accomplices as the entire sect sorta kidnapped his relatives

      2. Innocent my ass lol. The only innocent ones would be those who either left the sect (opposing the kidnapping but not being strong or brave enough to voice their opinion) or directly opposed that decision. Whoever stayed was just an accomplice, at least by xanxia standards.

    3. Firstly, he never said he was gonna lay low. he said he was gonna familiarize himself with the city and then breakthrough to the 10th level of earth profound realm. Secondly, he only laid low and schemed in the beginning because he was incredibly weak and there were many that he couldn’t beat. he used schemes to win. now, he has the power to fight back against the majority of people and so doesn’t hide and scheme like he used to. He’s not gonna act like a coward when he doesn’t need to and certainly isn’t gonna be insulted by a weakling for no reason. he already plans to take care of the divine phoenix sect anyway.

      1. But his medic skillz aren’t getting any more show time! You know I often forget he’s suppose to be an expert in medicine/poison because of all that shounen crap he be doing nowadays. It’s gotten to MGA lvls and that’s coming from someone who read all the current 2000+ raws (in machine translations)

    4. Laying low means not going out and causing problems for no reason, if someone provokes him he won’t stay quiet, plus this benefits him since he got the attention of the elder in the black moon merchant guild.

  2. i think i finally realize why i dont enjoy this as much anymore. it seems to me that theres no more intrigue or OMG moments where i think of how Yun Che will escape or deal with issues. now its just waves of “I am from X sect respect me” followed by “how can you be so powerful we have to kill you” then some “junior you dare.” theres no more smart or sly che who tricks himself into a sect robs them blind and walks out. it seems after the Massacre Arc thinngs have gone downhill. Im not even going to comment on his harem because thats just my personal taste to dislike them. Anyway this was just me ranting abit no offense to anyone

    1. In fairness, we’ll probably get another disguised Yun Che soon. But yeah, we’ve had a long string of incredibly repetitive and annoying chapters.

      1. Like it was said previously, Yun Che used tactics because he was weak, this world works like that ” Me strong me crush you ”
        It actually reminds me of ISSH when Meng Hao was playing the sly mofo, now that he’s strong I don’t think we will get that again :/

        1. The whole point here is not that Yu Che doesn’t use tactics and scheme anymore, it’s that when he was using scheme and tactics, the novel was more enjoyable, entertaining etc, the plot was more creative.
          Now a lot of people don’t feel as entertained as before because the author doesn’t seem to be creative enough to write a real plot and real interactions with Yun Che’s new power other than having a stupid character be arrogant and Yun Che shutting his mouth by being arrogant and showing how huge his d*ck is.
          Yun Che as always been arrogant but it was still more subtle before, which made it more entertaining. The quality of the plot with the subtlety,schemes and tactics is nowhere to be found with the “OPness” he gained 100 chapters ago.

          I don’t read this novel anymore, but here I am checking the last two chapters, to see how it goes and what is this chapter about ? A bet, with an arrogant divine phoenix sect disciple to punch in some wall. How sad.

          At least with MGA I never felt like the quality of the plot decreased, it was from the start a pure shonen action type Xianxia. (again, imo, I felt like ATG was more mature)
          So, in the end it’s just not entertaining anymore compared to the +200 first chapters and feels extremly repetitive (plot device, situations created, dialogue etc).

          Meng Hao is strong now, but the author still knows how to create interesting and entertaining situations, that’s the difference imo. (ofc, if you don’t find ATG boring now, all of this isn’t valid for you)

    2. This is something I’ve been noticing with a lot of these xinxia novels. Besides the harem, there’s always these cocky prick everywhere throughout. Thinking they’re the top dog, the strongest. All of them just waiting till the mc comes to knock em down a notch, maybe even killing a few. I’m surprised there’s so many of them, you’d expect they, themselves would have kept each other in check. With how they are always trying to see has the bigger ****. And bowing down to the strong. Fearing death etc.

      Of course they only show up for the propose of showing how strong the mc is both morally and physically. To whoo the ladies to him. I bet the divine phoenix princess already saw this act and likes him.

  3. Thanks for the chapter.

    . However, this outcome was unquestionably a thousand hundred times better than kowtowing.
    -a hundred thousand times

    Where is Elmer Fudd when you need him?

  4. I’m not really sure about this… I might actually prefer to kowtow instead of stripping in public… but I guess this has to do with honor and not everyone is as shameless as me when it comes to not caring what people think and my culture doesn’t revere grandfathers or fathers as much as the chinese cultures, so calling someone grandfather or father is not really that much of a hit… It certainly doesn’t mean the person is above me in any way, it simply doesn’t carry that much weight whether your a senior or junior.
