Chapter 798 – Devil Sword Conference (2)

Xuanyuan Wendao took to the skies and arrived at Xuanyuan Jue’s side, “Ninth Elder, this isn’t the time to settle your personal grievances. Let’s speak of this again once the Devil Sword Conference has ended.”

He cupped his hands towards where Absolute Monarch Sanctuary was seated before saying, “The Ninth Elder loves his daughter with all of his heart. So in a fit of passion, he disturbed everyone from Absolute Monarch Sanctuary, I beg for your forgiveness on his behalf… Ninth Elder, let’s return to our seats.”

He gave Yun Che a bland look before pulling Xuanyuan Jue back towards where Mighty Heavenly Sword Region was seated.

“Ninth Elder, you are being too rash! Father already gave strict orders that no one is allowed to make trouble with Yun Che before the Devil Sword Conference begins!” Xuanyuan Wendao said in his sound transmission to Xuanyuan Jue.

“Hmph! I simply can’t understand this! Our Sword Master has clearly already uncovered all of his secrets so why are we still acting so skittishly!?” Xuanyuan Jue shot back, his rage coming to full boil.

“Father is not scared of Yun Che, but there is a very important reason for our current actions and orders. If you had really killed Yun Che, that would have wrecked Father’s grand plan! At that time…” Xuanyuan Wendao gave Xuanyuan Jue a bland look, his eyes filled with warning.

Xuanyuan Jue fought back a faint shiver that ran through his body.

“That old villain! Despite being an elder of Mighty Heavenly Sword Region, he still dared to publicly attack Brother-in-law in this place!” Xia Yuanba said in a hot-tempered voice.

“Don’t bother with him. On the contrary, these are the kind of people that you don’t need to be afraid of.” Yun Che’s brows sank as he thought about the worst case scenario and simulated plans that would allow him to respond.

Because of the previous matter, the Sea God Arena was no longer calm and quiet. Instead, it began to buzz with the sound of conversation. Yun Che could guess what these people were talking about even if he could not hear them: Topics like Xia Yuanba, the grievance that Mighty Heavenly Sword Region had with him and why Xuanyuan Jue astonishingly seemed to be completely unafraid of his rumored “master”.

The air suddenly grew cold as a sharp aura that was so cold that it seemed to come from the very depths of the netherworld suddenly pervaded the air. This caused all conversation to grind to a sudden halt, as if all words had been frozen.

Yun Che suddenly raised his and head and looked in the direction of Mighty Heavenly Sword Region. Three pitch-black figures appeared from the sky out of nowhere like ghosts.

All three people were dressed in black, their expressions were as stiff as corpses. Their brows were as long and thin as swords and every line on their faces was so stiff that it looked like they had been carved with a blade.

Yun Che was five hundred meters distant from them but he could not feel any energy radiating from them and he could not see any vigor or life in their eyes either. Yun Che closed his eyes and he actually could not even recall the appearances of these three people. Furthermore, based on his spiritual perception alone, he was completely unable to sense that there were three people floating in space. The only thing he could sense were three keen swords with unrivalled sharpness!

“What dreadful sword intent!” Yun Che muttered to himself.

The entire atmosphere of the Sea God Arena had instantly frozen due to the arrival of these three people. Even the expressions of the gathered elders of Absolute Monarch Sanctuary had faintly changed at the arrival of these three people.

“Sword Attendant Heartless, Sword Attendant Merciless, Sword Attendant Emotionless. The most terrifying existence in Mighty Heavenly Sword Region! The Three Sword Attendants!” Xia Yuanba said with furrowed brows. Even though there was still quite a distance between them, he still felt as if three sharp swords were pressed against his throat. His body had completely tensed up unconsciously and even his breathing had become uneven, “Even though this is the first time I have seen them, no one else besides these three dreadful sword attendants could produce such extreme sword intent.”

Yun Che’s brows knit together… Even though the aggregate strength of Mighty Heavenly Sword Region was the least of the Four Sacred Grounds, they had the most level ten Monarchs. They had four people at this level, drawing even with Absolute Monarch Sanctuary.

Besides Sword Master Xuanyuan Wentian, the other three level ten Monarchs were the “Three Sword Attendants” that Xia Yuanba had told him about a few days ago!

They were a terrifying existence whose might was second only to the Four Sacred Masters!!

“I heard from Master that these three people had purged all their worldly passions and desires from a very young age. They bent their hearts solely towards mastering the sword and their cultivation in the way of the sword has reached the highest peaks, a supreme realm of mastery where there is nothing that they cannot do. Even blades of grass and flying flowers are swords to them. With a thought, they can summon countless blades of sword energy. They are able to kill someone without leaving a single trace. It was said that if all three of them joined forces, they would be able to rival a leader of a Sacred Ground!”

Xia Yuanba’s voice was low and deep. When he had brought up the Three Sword Attendants earlier, it had only been a cursory introduction. But right now, after learning about Yun Che’s situation, his heart felt incredibly heavy when he introduced these three people yet again, .

The three men floated down from the sky and they sat down at the front of where Mighty Heavenly Sword Region was being seated. As the Young Sword Master, Xuanyuan Wendao got up from his seat at the fastest speed possible to greet them, his attitude respectful and reverential.

From this act alone, one could see just how exalted their status were in Mighty Heavenly Sword Region.

Yun Che’s gaze swept across the venue before his eyes landed on where Supreme Ocean Palace was being seated. The most eye-catching sight was those seven old people who sat at the very front. They were all sitting side by side and they were dressed in the exact same clothes, but each of their outfits were of a different color.

The gathered elders of Supreme Ocean Palace were garbed in light blue, but these seven people were dressed in red, orange, yellow, green, cyan, blue and purple! The way they were dressed seemed to represent all the colors of the rainbow!

Xia Yuanba followed Yun Che’s gaze before speaking, “Those seven people are the Seven Venerable Ones of Supreme Ocean Palace! Venerable Purple and Venerable Blue who are seated in the middle are both level ten Monarchs who are able to rival the Three Sword Attendants!”

Yun Che’s gaze went from the Seven Venerable Ones of Supreme Ocean Palace to Zi Ji.

Zi Ji’s seat was astonishingly in front of even the Seven Venerable Ones!

It was as if Zi Ji had felt Yun Che’s gaze because he turned to look at him at the same time. He gave a small nod of his head and a faint smile.

To the right of Supreme Ocean Palace was the area Sun Moon Divine Hall was being seated. All of the people seated there wore clothes that were emblazoned with a sun and a moon. The five people who were seated in the very front looked ancient but the sun and moon emblazoned on their clothes glowed with a luminosity that almost seemed real. These five ancients sat together and the aura they released was dense and primal. It was as if their auras had mingled to create an independent and small world, one which others would have no hope of stepping into.

“Those five people are Sun Moon Divine Hall’s Sun Moon Divine Envoys! They are Divine Envoy Heavens Equal, Divine Envoy Blazing Sun, Divine Envoy Moon Punisher, Divine Envoy Star Banisher and Divine Envoy Earth Turner respectively. Among these five, Divine Envoy Heavens Equal and Divine Envoy Blazing Sun are both level ten Monarchs. Divine Envoy Heavens Equal is especially strong, he is the mightiest of the Five Divine Envoys. His title ‘Heavens Equal’ basically indicates that he is of equal status and position as the Heavenly Monarch Ye Meixie. The other three Divine Envoys are all level nine Monarchs!”

Xia Yuanba explained to Yun Che.

Divine Envoys? So they chose to use the name of the gods in their titles?

Yun Che gave a quiet and cold chuckle before shooting a glance towards Ye Xinghan who sat behind the five Sun Moon Divine Envoys.

The young divine hall master of Sun Moon Divine Hall would definitely not be absent from this Devil Sword Conference. Furthermore, he stared straight at Yun Che as well, his gaze full of venom and hate. When his eyes met with Yun Che’s eyes, his pupils immediately contracted and he quickly averted his gaze but the muscles on his face continued to twitch and writhe.

Besides the Four Great Sacred Grounds, all the other powers from the Profound Sky Continent that were gathered here were all sitting ramrod straight, none of them moving a single muscle. Their expressions were nervous and tense, their breathing was moderate and shallow and even their whispering was done in the most cautious and discreet manners. All of these powers were naturally aware that the Four Great Sacred Grounds were the paramount existences within the Profound Sky Continent, but they had definitely never imagined that the true power of the Sacred Grounds was actually this terrible.

Monarchs, the legends that existed in their hearts and minds, an existence that they might encounter once every thousand years. Hundreds of them had appeared in this place! It was an event that was so shocking that it was highly plausible that they would remain dazed for many days.

The entire Sea God Arena was shrouded in a gigantic curtain of light. Even Yun Che’s eyes were unable to penetrate that veil of light and see what lay within. But anyone would be able to guess that the eponymous devil sword of this Devil Sword Conference lay behind this curtain of light.

Time was flowing slowly but at this moment, the light in the sky suddenly dimmed by a fraction.

This small decrease in brightness was something that a normal person would definitely not be able to detect. But all those who were seated here were the most powerful individuals in the Profound Sky Continent. Their spiritual perceptions were all extremely keen and many of them had raised their heads to the sky the moment the light had dimmed.

“Brother-in-law, quickly look!” Xia Yuanba said as he raised his head to the sky.

The blazing sun hung in the east but it slowly crept towards the center. However, an extremely short and slim black scar had appeared at the border of the eastern sky!
“The fabled Thirteen Star Alignment… Is it really going to appear now?” Xia Yuanba muttered to himself. At the same time, the entire Sea God Arena began rumbling with noise.

In the eastern part of the Sea God Arena, a beam of sword energy pierced the heavens. It was as if a blazing meteor had descended from the sky, the light it gave off was so piercing that everyone was blinded for a moment. Under that light, a green figure slowly appeared within the space that had been slashed open by that sword beam. He was all dressed in green and his sword might was boundless. Once he appeared, it was as if an emperor was arriving in all of his pomp and glory, causing the hearts and souls of all who were gathered to tremble with fear.

Following the arrival of this person, every single member of Mighty Heavenly Sword Region, from the lowest disciple to the mightiest sword attendant, rose from their seats and bowed in greeting:

“The absolute sword of heaven’s might is peerless and unmatched in this world! We welcome the Sword Master!”

The Sword Master of Mighty Heavenly Sword Region—Xuanyuan Wentian!


Wild laughter rang out from the western section of the Sea God Arena which was directly opposite Xuanyuan Wentian. Amidst this wild laughter, the empty air above that area suddenly shone with a glaring profound light, it was as if a burning sun was being born. On the other side, a luminous waning moon also appeared floating in the air. One sun and one moon instantly suppressed all the light in this area and even the real sun that hung in the eastern sky seemed dimmer under the light of this sun and moon.

A tall and upright figure slowly walked out between the light that was emitted from this sun and moon. He was garbed in white and his eyes twinkled like cold stars as a mighty aura that rivalled Xuanyuan Wentian’s descended from above. This caused all of the profound practitioners who were sitting in the western section of the Sea God Arena to shiver fiercely as they could barely resist the urge to kneel on the floor and prostrate themselves in worship.

“Of the blazing sun and punishing moon, the Heavenly Monarch equals the heavens! We greet the Heavenly Monarch!”

This time, all of the profound practitioners of Sun Moon Divine Hall had gotten to their feet before they kneeled down in obeisance.

“The Holy Master of Sun Moon Divine Hall, the one who possesses the title of ‘Heavenly Monarch’, Ye Meixie!?” Yun Che muttered to himself. Ye Meixie appeared to be a middle-aged man, he looked far younger than Yun Che had expected.

In the southern part of the Sea God Arena, a faint yellow light descended from the skies right in front of where Absolute Monarch Sanctuary was seated. Within that yellow light, a frail and thin figure dressed in white clothes appeared.

The moment that weak and frail figure appeared, all of the spiritual masters, elders and disciples of Absolute Monarch Sanctuary… Xia Yuanba included, all swiftly stood to their feet as they clasped their hands and shouted a greeting:

“Absolute Monarch Saint Emperor, ruler of the myriad boundaries! We welcome the Saint Emperor!”

More than one hundred Monarchs and four hundred Sovereigns shouted that greeting at the same time, the profound energy that shook the air was mighty indeed. Yun Che was extremely close by and he was still heavily injured, so he did not react in time to shield himself. He was so shaken by the profound energy that his chest felt heavy and his vision swam, his wounds nearly opening up again due to the impact.

The frail and thin man slowly turned around as he gave an extremely calm and placid smile to the gathered members of Absolute Monarch Sanctuary and made a gesture for them to return to their seats. The moment he turned around, Yun Che clearly saw his features as well and his heart was filled with shock and astonishment.

Huangji Wuyu, the Saint Emperor of Absolute Monarch Sanctuary, the leader of the Four Sacred Grounds! The man who was publically acknowledged as the most powerful person in the Profound Sky Continent! As one of the supreme powers whose existence was legendary, everyone thought that he would definitely possess a matchless and majestic figure and that his aura would shake the heavens.

But what appeared in Yun Che’s eyes was a frail and thin young man… who did not look to be more than sixteen years of age!

But his gaze was that of an ancient man, his eyes looked like they had seen the rise and fall of a hundred ages.

Xuanyuan Wentian’s aura was incomparably sharp, it was as if ten thousand swords had descended from the sky. Ye Meixie’s aura was boundless and majestic and it seemed as if it could collapse the sky. Huangji Wuyu, on the other hand, projected an aura that was not tyrannical in the slightest, there was no attacking intent in it… Actually, Yun Che could not even sense the presence of any profound energy from his body. It was as if he was mere commoner who did not even practice the profound way.

Huangji Wuyu’s gaze touched Yun Che and it lingered there for a second. After that, he turned towards the Sea God Arena and quietly stared at the curtain of light that shrouded it.

In the west, a gentle aura that surged with hidden power descended from the sky, enveloping the hearts and souls of everyone present. At that moment, the picture of a vast and boundless ocean appeared in everyone’s hearts. This ocean was raging and frothing as huge waves soared to the heavens.

Before a figure had even appeared, the entire Supreme Ocean Palace had all risen to their feet in greeting:

“The supreme Sovereign of the Seas, she who has no limits!”

Supreme Ocean Palace—Sovereign of the Seas Qu Fengyi had arrived! She was still garbed in those blue skirts that Yun Che had seen her wearing but her expression was dignified and her aura was incomparably noble and grand.

In the east: Mighty Heavenly Sword Region—Sword Master Xuanyuan Wentian.

In the west: Sun Moon Divine Hall—Heavenly Monarch Ye Meixie.

In the south: Absolute Monarch Sanctuary—Saint Emperor Huangji Wuyu.

In the north: Supreme Ocean Palace—Sovereign of the Seas Qu Fengyi.

The masters of the Profound Sky’s Four Great Sacred Grounds, the current four true rulers of the Profound Sky Continent were all gathered in this Sea God Arena!

This Chapter’s Teaser


55 thoughts on “ATG – Chapter 798” - NO SPOILERS and NO CURSING

  1. Previous 2 previews dont match the story, hope this one would make sense..

    Is it just me?? NO, it is the translator who is wrong..

    Just stating my opinion..

    Yawa ka translator..

    1. I liked them!
      Who wasn’t ticked with that pompous coward?
      And the tiger is Xia Yuanba, the sweetest tiger you could possibly find!
      Ps. Don’t you dare mess with the translator…

      1. Don’t worry. Dnton is well hidden. So well hidden that we can’t always find him. 🙂 Most of the chaps from the last month have been Tl’ed by Dnton, edited by me, and TLC’d by Alys. There have been a few exceptions. Glad you’re enjoying our work.

    2. As a humble peon, I would like to submit a few interpretations of how 797’s teaser actually fits the chap. I have no idea what Alys was thinking when she actually chose it though. First, the reunion of that big lunk yuanaba (sp) with our hero fits. More appropriately would be Xuanyuan Wendao tangling with our hero before remembering that he’s a lunatic and scampering away. My brain is too tired to pick out details but there is also our hero about to tangle with mighty forces that have gathered. Just some food for thought!

      1. He was in too much pain to notice then.
        Remember when he fused his soul with the Dragon Soul? It was bloody hard!! How could he just get two more primordial beasts souls and not even blink?
        And both the Phoenix and the Crow said he would know when the time was right, all mysterious and pessimistic. I thought it would be a big deal 😔

    1. In chapter 608, Golden Crow’s soul said to Yun Che, that he is in possesion of “Fire Spirit Evil Body which possessed the Dragon God Soul and the Phoenix Soul” (Although Yun Che isn’t responding to this. Probably he already knew?).

      As for Crow soul, I don’t remember if it was mentioned anywhere.

      1. I went back to chapter 608 (thanks, by the way!). Yun Che hears it, but I don’t think he understands. He gets all frustrated when the Golden Crow repeats what the Phoenix said.
        “Until the day you need to know, then you will find out.”
        Cryptic pigeon.
        And either way, the Phoenix origin Soul was an independent entity. When did it become a part of his own soul?

        1. Im up really late with insomnia, so Im not certain if this is what you’re looking for: in 700 he uses all the ‘souls’ he has within him (I believe it’s the first time since he got them that he’s pulled them all out). 701 has a summary of it, here’s a copy/paste: [In order to counteract the terrifying soul stealing ability of the Netherworld Udumbara Flower, he had used the Dragon God Soul, the Phoenix Soul and the Golden Crow Soul, so in the end, he had used up so much energy that he had run empty. So the moment he woke up, it should not only be his power and his body that became frail, his mind should also be exceptionally frail and weak at this point of time.] Hopefully that’s what you were looking for.

          1. I think it is, thanks Bubble!
            It’s in 790, but a got your point. Insomnia can be a pain, try catching a nap before you pass out.
            I usually come here when I can’t sleep, you crazy people update in the most absurd hours where I’m from.

        2. There is also mentioned by Xue’er in chapter 450 (Phoenix soul).

          By the way, I think that the thing Phoenix bestowed Yun Che is something different. You need to
          remember that Crow’s soul additional to its soul, has also given powerfull Jade to Yun Che (as equal or little better than present given by Phoenix).

    2. To answer your question, he didn’t know that the Golden Crow gave him its soul. Just like how he didn’t know the Phoenix had given him its soul as well. Golden crow told Jasmine that she gave up her soul cuz she sensed something dangerous in the flow of destiny or something. So YC didn’t know that he acquired the GC soul, he only thought he got its powers and its cryptic words that hinted at a greater power that would appear when he needed, Idk maybe he could’ve assumed it was the soul power that’s supposed to help in times of need.

      So there was never a point in the story where it was clearly stated to YC that he got the GC soul.

      Also when YC asked GC if the mysterious power that the Phoenix granted was the soul, GC’s reply was no.

      My guess to this mysterious power is that, once he acquires the third fire bird power, vermillion bird, and gains its soul and mysterious power, these powers are gunna fuse and grant a further greater access to fire laws or something along those lines. Or maybe fuse and recreate his body to a divine body so he can ascend to the divine realm, cuz currently he is still a mortal.

      Idk this is just my theory. But again, no point in time was it clearly stated to YC that he acquired the GC soul. The souls getting activated is probably on their own accord just like with the Phoenix soul during the dragon soul trial and GC trail.

      1. Thanks for clearing it out.
        I swear, this story is bad for my nerves (Oh, my poor nerves! hehe).
        There are so many mysteries and simultaneous riddles!
        Now I am way too curious, I’ll just have to make the sacrifice and read it till the end…
        What a shame.

    1. If you are ever in doubt as to what ‘count’ any given release has in the week, go to the release page and it will normally tell you.

      On the right, under ‘Categories’, look for Against the Gods.
      If you click that, you will be presented with a thread that’s full of the release messages, starting with the most recent.

      Alys puts counts in there. According to the 798 release it was #6. So, unless something has changed we are behind by 1. It will most likely get caught up this week if we pour enough caffeine into the translator.

  2. Teaser is signifying Sword Region, Owls=smart, so sword region think they so smart since they planning all this shady stuff with YC and the sword, buuuuuuttt in reality they are just pokemon, waiting to be caught by the true masters of the world and used to reach their goal.

    This is the exact meaning of the teaser, don’t ask questions, just believe it!!!!!! Thank you have a nice day, don’t forget to eat or sleep.

    Long live F5 sect, ignorant juniors; don’t court death, thanks! bye!

    1. Speaking of the sword region thinking they’re hot sh*t when they are really just sh*t, that’s been killing my enjoyment of ATG recently. Watching these idiots act like pompous dipsh*ts strut around like everything is in their control as if they know everything and everything will go their way is truly getting on my nerves now, especially since ATG tends to take half a dozen chapters to do what can be done in two good DE chapters or one good WMW chapter.

      Get on with it already damnit, I just want to get to the part where all their plans are ruined and they’re crushed to dust.
      If I have to hear them pat themselves on the back one more time, I’m going to scream.

      1. Kczz my old ftiend, I’ve been wondering where you were, guess you’ve been lurking around lol. And yea, same for me. The repetetiveness is getting annoying. They’re like cockroaches, you smack one away and another shows up. Especially that ninth elder, got on my nerves A LOT. Just wait till LDE show up and Jasmine is done with her body.

        1. I’ve all but given up on the ATG comment section some time back, since it’s usually just a whine fest and whatnot. I always read the comments for DE and WMW though, if you ever comment on either of those.

          Haven’t been feeling ATG much recently anyway because the stuff you mentioned to wait for is probably going to take 30 to 50 chapters, mostly because the author likes to add a little too much fluff, descriptions and word diarrhea and my mind keeps wandering halfway into a new chapter. When I get 20% of the story progress for twice the chapter length compared to say a chapter of Warlock of the Magus World, I end up just wishing I was reading that instead.

          1. I’d pick both. But in case you ever get the time, AGM is fast paced, and both of them don’t have much fluff.

          2. “Fast paced” and “little fluff” are not qualities I go out of my way to look for in a novel, they can simply be a nice bonus depending on the novel itself. For example, I wish ATG would shut up and get on with it a little more, while the pacing of WMW works out just right in comparison.

          3. Both are pretty good novels as far as Xianxia is concerned. I wouldn’t expect anyone to read just because of the pacing and fluff, my intention of mentioning that was as extras… what do you look out for in a novel?

          4. Honestly I couldn’t tell you. About the only things I know I avoid are those novels, usually Japanese WNs, that have super short chapters of a hundred to a few hundred words long and need a dozen ‘chapters’ to do anything. The other thing I avoid is any series where a battle or ‘war’ be it big or small, tends to last for 8+ chapters pretty consistently.

            That second one is also usually a Japanese WN and has an obsession with sprinkling little bits of Japanese culture in, while the protagonist usually has “nishishi” as a laugh. Other things that can drive me away: Bad translators (Lord Xue Ying, despite my love of IET) and the series has too many chapters and I’d never see it translated in my lifetime (Bringing the Farm to the Otherworld, etc) wherein if a series has over 2k chapters and isn’t even complete I’ll avoid it like the plague now.

  3. Is anyone else hoping that at the very least by the end of the Devil Sword Conference the Emo Cultivator Fen JeuChen will be dead… ?

    Out of Curiosity.

  4. wow.. a lot of new characters introduced out here, each with their heaven-defying names! pure way to drag on chapters. great that i started TGS. this feels so boring now.
