Chapter 786 – Heaven Smiting Devil Slayer

The fires continued to burn but they had grown much smaller than before. The wild windstorm and the constant shaking of the Moon Slaughter Devil Nest had also come to a stop. Yun Che lay limply on the ground, the muscles of his blood-drenched body spasming and twitching. Every now and then, hoarse moans could be heard from his mouth… proving not only that he was still alive but also that he still retained some semblance of consciousness.

“Yun Che, don’t even try to stand up. Immediately focus on activating the Great Way of the Buddha instead!” Jasmine quickly commanded him.

Jasmine’s voice caused the shuddering in Yun Che’s body to lessen. He no longer tried to struggle. Instead, he closed his eyes and devoted all his remaining strength to activating the Great Way of the Buddha. He could see through blurry eyes that his body was completely covered in blood, yet he did not feel the slightest bit of pain… it was as if his entire body did not belong to him anymore.

At the very end of the Moon Slaughter Devil Nest, more than ten paces to the right of Yun Che, several small clusters of flame still continued to burn. Astonishingly, the thing that had been set aflame was the Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign’s devil body.

The Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign’s left arm and both his legs had been severed from his body, lying strewn across the floor in scattered pieces. What remained was only his right arm which could barely be considered intact. Furthermore, his entire body had been completely shattered. It was as if he was mud that had been trampled over by an entire battalion of soldiers. And even this “mud” was still slowly being burned up and consumed by the Golden Crow flames.

“…This king… actually…”

The fingers on his right arm were trembling and a voice that sounded as rough as sandpaper came from the immobilized head of the Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign.

That voice caused Yun Che’s body to twitch. After that, he began to struggle furiously to get up. It was then that Jasmine’s low voice rang out, “Don’t worry about him, he’s already been smashed to bits and pieces by you. The reason why he can still speak is because he is using the very last bit of his devil energy. He will very soon be even deader than dead.”

“…” Yun Che’s eyelids cracked open as his expression grew more relaxed. His lips curved slightly into a faint smile before he spoke with great difficulty, “Jasmine… thank you, if not for you…”

“Hmph! If not for me, you would have died an even uglier death than him!” Jasmine said huffily. But this time, she did not scold Yun Che for forcing open the “Rumbling Heaven” gate. Because it was really the only option left to him, the only hope that he could grasp at… and in the end, fate once again stood at Yun Che’s side.

His wounds were very heavy and another practitioner would have died a hundred times over. Still, these injuries were insufficient to condemn him to death and could be recovered from in a fairly short period of time..

“Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign, do you have any words to leave behind!?” Jasmine asked in a cold voice.

“Cough…” The Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign droned on in a voice filled with pain and despair, “Even the Evil God’s… seal… which lasted for a million years… was not able to kill this king… Yet this king… actually… died… at the hands of… a pathetic human…”

“Hmph! Even though the million year seal of the Evil God was not enough to kill you, in the end, you still die because of his power! It looks like no matter how hard you struggled, even though your struggles lasted for a million years, you were ultimately still unable to escape your fate of dying by the Evil God’s hand!”

Jasmine’s cold voice was somber. The Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign’s impending death caused her to breathe a large sigh of relief but her heart still held a gloominess that would not be easily dispelled… If they had not entered this place for the sake of finding the Netherworld Udumbara Flower, if Yun Che’s peculiar characteristic of courting disaster had not acted up again and convinced him to stay behind, they would not have known that this place was actually hiding a devil from ancient times.

She was unable to imagine the horrific outcome that would have occurred if the Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign had continued to hide in this place until the day he completely recovered the strength he had during his peak.

Yun Che’s all-or-nothing gamble to kill the Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign was for the sake of preserving his own life and obtaining the Netherworld Udumbara Flower. But in the end, he had still killed a devil! Perhaps no one in this universe would ever know about it but he had eradicated a giant calamity that would have engulfed countless of worlds in the future.

“Evil… God…” The Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign mumbled before he began to laugh hoarsely, “Ha… haha… ha… Do you… really think that the… Evil God… was truly… a god…”

“What? If the Evil God wasn’t a god, then could he have been a human or a devil instead!?” Jasmine said with a cold and mocking laugh, “Even though you are at death’s door, you’re still a devil who has lived for over a million years. But the only thing you want to say before you die is this pile of hilarious rubbish?”

“Heh… hehehe…” The Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign continued to chuckle but his laughter sounded rather bizarre. At this moment, his remaining arm trembled in the air as it slowly lifted up off the ground. The remaining devil claws began to stretch out wide as they started to emit a weak and faint black light.

“…!” Jasmine’s heart suddenly tightened with anxiety… Could it be that he still had some strength left!?

But she immediately relaxed once more. Even though Yun Che’s wounds were extremely heavy right now and he did not possess the ability to resist, he still had the protection of the Dragon God’s bloodline and the Great Way of the Buddha. Even if the Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign could release one final beam of devil energy, it would still not be enough to kill Yun Che.

At most, it would merely inflict another wound on Yun Che’s broken body.

A jet-black orb that was around the size of a dragon’s eye appeared in the middle of the Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign’s hand which was wrapped in black light. His devil claws began to tremble as he spoke in a hoarse voice filled with resentment, “Pathetic human being… who has also inherited the power of the Evil God… this king… will sacrifice his devil orb… in order to consign you to eternal… damnation!!

All of the remaining power in his broken body was gathered up in that trembling arm as he threw something forward… The jet-black devil orb flew through the darkness before coming into contact with Yun Che and directly burying itself inside of his body.

This sudden and bizarre occurence sent a jolt of alarm through Jasmine’s heart and she spoke in a low voice, “What was that!? What did you throw at him?!”

“Ha… hahahaha… HAHAHAHAHA…” The Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign began to laugh wildly and his hoarse laughter was laced with pain, sorrow… and a warped and twisted joy.

“UWAAAAAAAHHHHH!!

At this moment, a pain-filled moan suddenly came from Yun Che’s mouth as his blood-covered body was suddenly covered in a weak and hazy black light… Furthermore, the aura that this light was releasing was shockingly a dark devil energy!

“!!” Jasmine could not care less about the risk as her soul body swiftly left the Sky Poison Pearl and entered Yun Che’s body once more. Her senses remained locked onto the jet-black orb that had entered entered Yun Che’s body. To her shock, she discovered that it had actually buried itself into Yun Che’s profound veins. It released a layer of black light as it sheathed his profound veins in a faint black glow.

Jasmine stretched out a hand, intending to use her power to eradicate it… But the moment her finger stretched out, her heart and soul were shaken fiercely and her face went white with shock.

The devil aura radiating from this dark orb was not strong; it could even be said to be incredibly weak. It would not even be able to swiftly kill the current Yun Che who was in an incredibly weak state. But the level of this devil aura was terrifyingly high!

This was far beyond the scope of her knowledge and experience!

Suddenly, Jasmine remembered that the Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign had mumbled the two words “devil orb” right before he had thrown out this black orb…

Could it be that this was actually the Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign’s devil origin orb!?

Was this the devil origin orb that the records stated sustained an ancient devil’s life origin, soul origin and origin of darkness!?

An item on the level of the devils!!

Jasmine’s tiny hand faintly trembled… No, she could not do it!! If this was truly a devil origin orb as recorded in the annals of history, even if its power was extremely weak, it was still not something that she could destroy! Moreover, it appeared to have actually forcefully merged with Yun Che’s Evil God’s Profound Veins… Even if she was able to remove it by force, it was extremely likely that she was cause severe damage to Yun Che’s profound veins in the process!

What was going on!? These were the Evil God’s Profound Veins that we are talking about, how could a devil origin orb merge with them so easily? Could it be because the level of the devil origin orb was so high while the level of Yun Che’s profound energy was too low, causing his profound veins to be unable to resist it?

Jasmine’s expression kept changing as she struggled with her thoughts. Finally, she stretched out her hand once more as a scarlet colored profound energy surged forth. She reduced its power again and again… She repeated this process more than ten times before finally pushing it into Yun Che’s profound veins. After that, she carefully wrapped her profound energy around that jet-black orb.

Immediately, the jet-black light was completely engulfed and covered by that bloody light and the originally weak devil energy completely vanished as well… It had been thoroughly sealed away by Jasmine’s powers.

Jasmine let her arm drop as she swiftly returned to the Sky Poison Pearl… Sealing away this thing that was most likely a devil origin orb was the only option she could think of at the moment. But in order to avoid harming Yun Che’s profound veins, she did not dare to use too much power. So that seal would not last for very long. From today onwards, she would have to renew that seal from time to time.

“Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign…” Yun Che could feel the intense changes that his body and profound veins were undergoing as he hoarsely gasped through gritted teeth, “What did… you do to me!?”

“This king… has given to you… a great boon… that you would never be able to obtain… even if you wished for it… ha… haha… kuh…” A spurt of black blood sprayed from the Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign’s mouth, carrying away the greater part of his life with it.

“You…” Yun Che growled through tightly gritted teeth but he was still unable to stand up.

“Don’t worry, I have already sealed it away.” Jasmine said coldly, Even though she had told Yun Che “not to worry”, her heart was exceptionally heavy. Because now that a devil origin orb had merged with the Evil God’s Profound Veins, perhaps… it may one day cause a bizarre change that no one would be able to predict or anticipate.

Things that were on the level of the devils were things that not even Jasmine was able to control or anticipate.

“Heh…” The Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign’s body no longer moved and his voice had grown so faint that it was as soft as the buzzing of an insect, “You… pathetic… and stupid… human beings… Do all of you really think that our devil race… has been destroyed completely…?”

“That which… was… banished… will surely… one… day…”

The final traces of black light within the Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign’s eyes completely disappeared.

This was the king of the Eternal Night Devil Clan, a devil who had escaped the calamity that had afflicted the gods and the devils during ancient times, a devil who had escaped the million year seal of the Evil God. But in the end, he had died at the hands of a human being and he would forever lie in the eternal darkness of the Moon Slaughter Devil Nest.

          1. Wow d ko expect daghan d i tah .bisdak hilig ug ATG. . THNK GUYS sa chapter .. Ngregister lng jud para maka comment lng haha

          2. ako gipangbasa. SOTR, ISSTH, TDG (hanging), Martial world, Martial God Asura (palaiyot ang MC) WDQK, Coiling Dragon (complete). korean novel Dragon maker war(libog sabton peroro choi

          3. Bisayang Dako, Nusblid ko ani kay ingglis . HAHAHA, daghan man diay mo readers di ari.

          1. yup a community for filipino wuxia/xianxia/xuanhuan enthusiasts would be great. absolutely. how about a twitter page?

            i have no one i can talk to about ww. i would be thrilled to make acquaintances out of you lot

          2. nag ol ako para lang maki reply haha…. inactive ung group n to sa fb?

            any other groups in fb?

    1. hindi ako marunong magbisaya pero i’m still half bisaya (romblomanon).

      bukon ko gid nasayuran kadamo gid mga bisaya didto.

      ^me trying to speak bisaya and failing miserably

  1. I feel so much the seed of Darkness coming, the moment Jasmine toldYun Che that the Devin Moon Slaughter Nest had a thing releasing an extra thick dark energy,i started calling for the seed.

    1. Since yun che will be in danger due to the severe injuries he got, i also believe the darkness seed will appear and he will consume it making a miracle recovery.

      1. I don’t really think that there will be a darkness seed for Yun Che, the first reason for this is Jasmine never feared the energy coming from a seed and it was clearly said in the early part of this arc that the darkness energy around the area definitely have some negative effects in Yun Che although it is minimal it doesn’t make sense that the energy from a seed will have some bad effects against the Evil God Profound Veins right? another reason is if there really a darkness seed, it would mean that the Evil God would still be alive because an Evil Seed means absolute immunity to the corresponding element it represents and if it is a darkness seed then it would mean that the Evil God will definitely survive the catastrophe from the Primordial Era caused by the Evil Infant Tribulation Wheel because the energy the that the Evil Infant Tribulation Wheel releases is darkness attribute.

        1. First part of what you say is completly true, but the second doesn’t have any sense, in the countless worlds of ATG’s universe we can easily guess that there exist lifeforms born purely from darkness or other bullshit like that, but would they be immuned to the ultimate death attack of the Wheel just because they share the same elements ? Moreover, Yun Che isn’t immuned to fire or thunder, he just has freakish resistance, if he was to meet (for example) a true flame of the Golden Crow he would undoubtebly burn to death. Thinking in this way, it made sense that the Evil God, even having astonishing resistance to Darkness, wasn’t able to completly fend off the power of the wheel.
          To conclude, i’ll juste add that the Devil (forgot his name, sole purpose is to get bashed by Yun Che) was sealed by the Evil God exactly 1 million years ago, the same time when the wheel was unleashed, we lack a lot of informations but nothing says that the Evil God did dies to the Wheel.

          1. Furthermore, if the Evil God did dies for the Wheel, how would he have left those seed for his inheritor in his own planet and how would he have let a message (When Yun Che and Qingyue are teleported to Yun Che’s previous world)for his successor in the dimensionnal pocket

          2. maybe the devil have the darkness seed, that is why the reason why the evil god didn’t kill him in the first place and used the seal instead of killing him…

          3. I have also been expecting a seed since they entered the cave reinforced by the fact that the Evil God sealed the devil here. I think the Devil was captured to create a darkness seed.

          4. I guess whatever seed consumed by yunche, he will get immunity of its pure energy, like the array of the fen clan, remember it??

          5. Using the logic of Yun che not being immune to fire, but highly resistant to it, the same applies if the darkness seed appears, it must have an incredibly strong power of darkness and that’s why it affects yun che and makes Jasmine afraid of it. Also, one must know that the power of darkness would affect anyone no matter who that person is, yun che was not immune to fire before getting the seed, logically he wouldn’t be immune to darkness either so saying that the darkness shouldn’t affect him or the seed shouldn’t be affecting him is completely wrong, the darkness seed is not affecting his profound veins because he isn’t supressed by it as others were, but it can affect his condition and put him in danger if the power of darkness is too strong, after all is the evil god’s seed and it should be powerful knowing that darkness power is quitr strange and fierce.

            Soon we will see what causes the power of darkness in that place anyways.

          6. Totoyesyes jasmine said the evil god died of the wheels poison, but he died after a long time, so he might be highly resistant

          7. Actually he does become immune to the element of the seed YunChe possesses, what causes damage is the profound energy that comes with the element used to attack.
            You can re-read if you want to check.

          8. For the Darkness Seed, it would be weird being called Evil God but not actually practicing the Dark element.

            With regards with the wheel killing the Evil God, if ever he does have a darkness seed;
            Well IMO just because the poison is of Darkness attribute doesn’t mean it is of darkness element entirely.. Poison is like profound energy per se.
            Like attacking YunChe with a flame attack, the flame doesn’t bother him, but the profound energy (poison) used smashes him.

          9. Well, it is not an attack based on energy of death, it says that it was of purely yin energy, if you wanna check, it clearly said that if you possess a seed, you will gain full immunity to the corresponding element because you will gain a spirit body, here is what the wiki says
            “Evil God Seeds
            Five Evil Gods seeds are spread through Evil God’s Five Secret Grounds that correspond to the five main elements. Only those who had inherited his power, would be able to find them. Each Seed will transform his body into a Spirit Evil Body that allows for complete control, absolute immunity, and increased affinity to the corresponding elements.”

          1. Well, even if it is a poison, it is still based on the darkness energy which the the Evil God was absolutely immune to and don’t forget that a poison without its base is just a puny thing to a primordial god, the Moon Slaughter Demon clearly said in the earlier chapter where Yun Che pretend a pathetic human waiting for his death, that the Evil God clearly died after being struck by the Evil Infant Tribulation Wheel.

    2. I’ve thought that the source of the darkness energy was a Devil since before he even entered, and then we did get a devil. Why does there have to be some treasure causing the darkness energy when a devil is obviously a powerful enough source of darkness for all of this. There’s really no reason for there to be a seed here. 1k years ago this devil dude was chillin here, then got sealed. His darkness energy he put off built up enough in this sealed space to allow the flower to spawn, which kept him alive and regenerating more and more. Seems straightforward. Why’s there a need for a treasure here? Isn’t getting Jasmin a body a good enough reward? As long as Jasmin gets a body, everything becomes pie, or at least, we start moving to a much bigger stage.

      Either which way, this is a huge turning point in this novel where it could take an infinite number of directions from here. It’s hard to predict what will happen next.

      1. True but Jasmine herself says that something other than the devil is causing the extra thick dark energy. And given the speed at wich ATG goes in the history, i simply don’t believe that Jasmine will get a body so soon, i think we still have a good 500chapters befor this, considering how the author like to give false hope.

      1. We’re not quite caught up with the Raw version yet. We’re at 4 releases a week, with maybe a bit more with sponsored chapters? It might be that donations are going to SR chapters or something though, since we’re almost caught up with the Raw. I was thinking that I heard that releases generally are Monday-Thursday, but I could be way wrong.

        Can anyone who knows for sure clarify?

        1. Chapters are spread through the whole week. When they come out depends partially on whether there are any sponsored chaps. Nobody can give you 100% listing of what days chaps come out. The only thing that is certain is that they will normally come out that week. The team doesn’t typically let chapters slide into the next week.

          None of the ATG $$ goes to SR.

        2. Also, look for a new posting from Alys in the next few days. I expect that after the end of April/start of May processing is done on Patreon she will have something to say about weekly chapters. If nothing stupid happens, there might even be daily chaps.

          Look for that upcoming post from Alys in the next few days. She’s the only one that can tell us all for certain what’s happening.

          1. umm . . . novel updates says the raws are at chapter 821. You guys define “almost” as a 30 – 40 chapter gap eh? I’d say almost when its down to say, 5 – 7 chapters behind, a.k.a. a week behind the raws. BTW, seeds give full immunity, -quoted from chapter 55-

            Jasmine said in a peculiar voice: “In the distant past, it is said that the Evil God possessed the most formidable of elemental power within the Primal Chaos Dimension. With only his profound strength, he had the ability to manipulate the elements in the natural world at will; and even so much that it was possible to change his profound energy into any kind of element at any time. In the memory imprint of that immortal drop of blood, it was clearly recorded that the five seeds the Evil God had left behind contained the “power source” of his formidable power over the elements. In the event that these sources of power were to be obtained, not only would one be able to manipulate the corresponding element, but would furthermore have the ability to be unconditionally immune to said element.”

            “It is also because of this record that this princess did not use the Evil God’s immortal blood on herself, but instead braved the great danger of arriving on this continent in order to attempt to find the Evil God’s Secret Grounds mentioned in the memory imprint. This is due to the possibility of manipulating the elements; and even the lure of perfect elemental immunity, was something that this princess is incapable of resisting. And because, in this present that’s long after the complete fall of the True God, this kind of ability is truly in a sense….”

            “A strength that opposes the heavens!”

  2. Many thanks for the chapter~~

    So who else thinks that devil orb thingy will turn out to be a major power boost once Yun Che gets the Evil Gods dark/devil seed?

    1. That’s probably pretty close to accurate. The chapter names don’t always make easy sense. Sometimes some mental gymnastics are required to have them make sense. Subtleties can get lost in translation as well.

  3. 2 legs and an arm chopped off, remaining arm ragged, difficulty breathing….

    Moon Slaughter Devil Sovereign got Vader’d

    So the devil orb is probably a mass of midichlorians
