Book 13, Gebados – Chapter 30, A So-Called Spar

The environment of Mount Copper Gong was very beautiful. Within the quiet, deep valley, there was a waterfall and a pool of water beneath it. Linley and Bebe had built two stone houses and were living there. Linley didn’t want to go disturb that Lord of Mount Copper Gong. It was already enough for him to have given Linley pointers.

“Rumble…”

The waterfall cascaded down like countless white pearls, smashing down into the deep pool below.

“Splash!” The water in the pool flowed out in small streams. Linley sat in the meditative stance by the side of the pool in a patch of grass. His original body had begun to calm down and focus on attuning with the Profound Mysteries of the Essence of the Earth. As for his divine clone, it continued analyzing the Elemental Laws of the Wind.

“I have never paid such close attention to the elemental essences as I currently am.”

Linley sent out all of his spiritual energy, infusing it into every single earth elemental essence particle.

Earth elemental essence particles were extremely small. There was no way one could see them with the naked eye, but these elemental essence particles filled the entire world. Each earth elemental essence particle hovered throughout the nearby area, moving in a chaotic, random pattern. And then they would collide into each other, then separate.

The earth essence particles attracted each other, then repelled each other.

“How strange. Is this the elemental world?”

Linley sighed inwardly in praise.

And then, as Linley infused his spiritual energy into the earth: “These solidified elemental essence particles are far too close to each other.” Indeed, this was the case. Rocks and dirt were actually all formed from earth elemental essences, except the elemental density was extremely high.

“Although the boundless earth and the stones of the mountain are all formed from earth elemental essences, they don’t give off a strong elemental aura. Ah!” Linley’s heart was filled with shock. “According to the way the earth elemental particles in the air are behaving, when elemental particles reach a very close distance from each other, they will repel each other. Then why is it…that those extremely densely packed particles in the rocks don’t repel each other?”

Linley himself was capable of controlling earth elemental essence to form mounds of dirt or rocks or metal, but when he did so, it emanated a strong elemental aura.

“Why is it that stones and dirt don’t give off a strong elemental aura?” Linley had never discovered this before. So it seemed the ordinary, unassuming pieces of rocks and dirt actually contained unique profound mysteries of their own.

Linley’s mind couldn’t understand it.

All sorts of contradictions vexed his comprehension.

Training like this, Linley became completely absorbed into this world of the miraculous ‘Essence of the Earth’.

“Groooowl…”

During the past two months, Mount Copper Gong would occasionally have angry roars and bellows emanate from within it. This was because while training, Linley would control elemental essence to create all sorts of magical beasts, which would occasionally let out angry howls. Based on his insights into the nature of elemental essences, one contradiction after another was resolved.

Only now did Linley understand that applying spiritual energy to forcibly control elemental essences to form a solid was a foolish technique!

“Between each elemental essence particle and each other particle, there is a mysterious, amazing relationship. All I have to do is just to use a little bit of extra spiritual energy, and I can cause countless elemental essence particles to become one.” Linley opened his eyes, looking at the angrily howling Savage Worldbear in mid-air.

This Savage Worldbear’s entire body was faintly surrounded by a yellow light. It was currently roaring in anger while beating its chest.

This Savage Worldbear was created from elemental essences.

“Two months ago, if I were to utilize a forbidden-level magic spell to summon this ‘Savage Worldbear’, I would have used up ten times as much spiritual energy, or perhaps even more!” Linley couldn’t help but sigh. “And this is with me only understanding a little bit of the ‘Essence of the Earth’.”

If he had completely mastered the Profound Mysteries of the Essence of the Earth, the difference would be far greater.

“If you take two people with the same amount of spiritual energy, one of whom has trained in the ‘Essence of the Earth’ while the other has not, the difference in power of the ‘Sacred Earthguard Armor’ they created over their bodies would be as great as the difference between the heavens and the earth.”

“Elemental essences are indeed marvelous.” Linley felt some gratitude towards the Lord of Mount Copper Gong, Leylin.

Leylin’s words were correct. The Profound Mysteries of the Essence of the Earth was just the basics. The entire Laws of the Earth were actually nothing more than the many profound mysteries which were created from the countless earth elemental essences. Understanding the ‘Essence of the Earth’ would be of great benefit to understanding the other profound mysteries.

Mount Copper Gong. Leylin’s residence.

Within that elemental manor, Leylin was with his two brothers.

Leylin’s crimson eyebrows rose. Sighing in praise, he said, “This Linley’s innate talent really is quite good. In two short months, he has already reached such heights in his insights into the ‘Essence of the Earth’. Given his current speed…with the ‘Essence of the Earth’ being a simple type of profound mystery, most likely in just two or three years, he would have completely mastered it.”

“Linley has innate talent, but can it compare to yours, Third Brother?” That bald man, Burgess, laughed.

The white-robed man also said, “Third Brother, you are the only true, most powerful genius in the history of our Yulan Plane.”

The white-robed man and Burgess both looked at Leylin with a hint of admiration in their eyes.

“You can’t say that.” Leylin gazed towards the southeast, as though he were capable of piercing through the walls of reality with his gaze and seeing that distant Linley, training within the mountain gorge. Laughing calmly, he said, “This Linley is only a Demigod. He has only just started on the road to training. Who can predict what his future accomplishments will be like?”

“At least given his current speed, he’s only slightly slower than I was in the past. As for his future accomplishments, that is hard to say.”

The bald man and the white-robed man both nodded slightly.

“That Beirut has also informed me that in other planes, there are absolute geniuses who were able to reach the Demigod stage in ten years, the God stage in a hundred years, and the Highgod stage in a thousand years. But to stupid, foolish people, they might be stuck at a bottleneck for ten million years without being able to break through to the Demigod stage.” Leylin laughed calmly.

“That is what insight and perception means.”

Leylin sighed, “This Linley is a very insightful and very perceptive person.”

“Become a Highgod in a thousand years. This is simply inconceivable.” Burgess and the white-robed man both sighed.

Leylin laughed calmly. “This has to do with each person’s destiny and life experiences. Those ultimate geniuses aren’t worth envying either!”

Leylin clearly felt rather disdainful towards those geniuses.

“Those geniuses desperately desired to reach the Highgod level as soon as possible. But how could they know that if one doesn’t begin trying to fuse the various profound mysteries from early on, if they only begin attempting to fuse them upon reaching the Highgod stage, it will be too late!”

“The profound mysteries of the Laws must be fused early on. The earlier, the easier it will be.” Leylin sighed. “If I had understood this when I was a Demigod, most likely I would have been able to fuse the six profound mysteries and have become a Paragon.”

“Fuse all of the profound mysteries? Third Brother, in all the countless planes, how many people have accomplished this?” The white-robed man said.

Leylin chuckled, no longer continuing on this subject.

“Big Brother.” Leylin looked towards that bald man. “It can be considered that Linley helped contribute to our successful flight from the Gebados Planar Prison. You are also someone who trains in the Laws of the Earth. Go have a spar with him.”

“Fine.” The bald man, Burgess, nodded straightforwardly.

Leylin looked at the white-robed man. “Second Brother, I have received great kindness from that Beirut. You go help take care of that Godeater Rat, and spar a bit with him as well.”

“And here I was, just feeling a bit bored.” The white-robed man laughed as he spoke.

………

The water gurgled forward in the creeks.

Linley was completely absorbed in attuning with the elemental essences. One drop of wisdom after another filled his mind, causing Linley to unconsciously reveal a hint of a smile on his face. While Linley was training, Bebe had also calmed down and begun to train.

Suddenly, a man appeared here.

“This Linley.” The bald man, Burgess, saw the hint of a smile on Linley’s face. “He actually smiles while he is training. This really makes one jealous!”

Only a few experts were able to treat training as a source of pleasure.

If you liked to do something, then once you became absorbed in it, your effectiveness would be extremely high. If, on the other hand, you didn’t like to do something and instead forced yourself to do it, the effectiveness would be very low.

The vast majority of experts forced themselves to train because they didn’t want to be inferior to others, didn’t want to be killed by others, or for other reasons.

How could they, who forced themselves to train, possibly compare to someone who liked training?

These countless experts all understood this reasoning, and they wanted to try and make themselves enjoy training and make training a source of pleasure, thus allowing themselves to train faster, gain insights more easily, and break through.

But whether or not you liked something was something determined by your nature and soul.

You couldn’t just choose to like something. For example, if you saw an extremely ugly woman, no matter how hard you tried to make yourself ‘like’ her, you wouldn’t be able to do it. The choices of your innate nature were unchangeable.

“Mr. Burgess, why have you come?” Bebe called out loudly.

Linley now opened his eyes and immediately rose up. With a laugh, he said, “Mr. Burgess.”

The bald man, Burgess, laughed loudly. “Linley, I know that you train in the Laws of the Earth. By coincidence, I too train in the Laws of the Earth. Let’s have a spar between you and me. What say you?”

“This…this is wonderful, of course.” Linley was very surprised and pleased.

Sparring with an expert who trained in the same Laws, especially someone much more powerful, was an extremely rare opportunity. After all, this meant the stronger person had to lower themselves to train with you.

Although it was described as ‘sparring’, in reality the other was helping him and guiding him!

“Haha…I’m rather stupid. I’ve only trained in two of the profound mysteries of the Laws of the Earth. One is the Profound Mysteries of the ‘Essence of the Earth’, while the other is the Profound Mysteries of Strength.

Linley’s heart leapt.

He now knew of yet another profound mystery of the Laws of the Earth; the Profound Mysteries of Strength.

“Rumble…” A large amount of earth elemental essence solidified, and the body of the bald man, Burgess, became covered with a sparkling earthen armor.

“Not the color of adamantine?” Linley was secretly surprised.

“Linley, against you, there’s no need for me to utilize the Profound Mysteries of Strength. I’ll directly utilize the Profound Mysteries of the Essence of the Earth. Careful!” Burgess laughed loudly, and as he spoke, he kicked off the ground powerful, charging forward while smashing towards Linley with his fist.

The sun reflected off of his sparkling earthen armor in a dazzling manner. Burgess’ right fist actually transformed into the head of a vicious wolf which opened its mouth and bit downwards.

“Hoooooowl!” The vicious wolf actually let out a howling sound.

Linley’s face changed. He wanted to retreat, but Burgess had actually utilized his Godrealm. As a God, Burgess’ Godrealm had caused Linley’s speed to drop dramatically.

“Clang!” Bloodviolet clashed against that vicious wolf’s head fist.

Linley was sent blasting backwards like a sandbag. With a ‘boom’, he smashed viciously into the deep pool of water like a meteorite, sending water spraying everywhere. Under the light of the sun, the water drops spraying everywhere seemed like sparkling jewels.

“Hey, that’s way too weak.” Burgess shook his head.

“Boom!” Linley erupted out from the surface of the water, then landed on the ground. Staring at Burgess, he immediately asked, “Mr. Burgess, how is it that the vicious wolf’s head which your fist had transformed into could have such power? How could its hardness be on a level with a divine artifact?” Linley felt utterly mystified by what had just happened.

Burgess quirked his lips. “Think about it for yourself.”

Linley’s smile froze.

“Alright. Let’s do it again.” Linley gritted his teeth.

From this day onwards, each day, Linley would be defeated by Burgess three times. Burgess never gave him any guidance. Any questions Linley had, he would tell Linley to go think about it for himself. Actually…even if Burgess had explained it, he wouldn’t be able to truly explain it clearly.

After all, in order to understand the profound mysteries of the ‘Essence of the Earth’, Burgess had spent over a thousand years.

Linley sparred with Burgess, while Bebe sparred with that white-robed man.

With this sort of continued ‘sparring’, Linley’s rate of improvement in understanding the ‘Essence of the Earth’ increased greatly.

Once again, Linley was sent flying. As he fell down onto the ground, a smile actually appeared on his face.

“I was wrong, wrong!”

Linley began to laugh loudly. “It isn’t dead. It isn’t dead.”

“I never understood what the power behind the throbbing pulse everywhere in the boundless earth was all about. Now, I understand. I understand. The Throbbing Pulse of the World. Haha. So this is the Throbbing Pulse of the World!” Linley seemed to have gone mad, as he raised his head and laughed wildly. And just as Linley began to laugh loudly…

An enormous, unique, irresistible surge of force descended. The space around Linley became distorted. In the face of this unique presence which was like the Laws, any creature, no matter how powerful, was like nothing but an ant.

Even Burgess couldn’t help but tremble.

The bald Burgess, who had just defeated Linley yet again and was preparing to delightedly lecture him, was stupefied. “This Linley, he…he broke through, just like that. This is too monstrous?” Burgess finally understood the difference between himself and a genius.

      1. hmm so if I am keeping accurate tabs on the laws of earth, we currently have:
        strength
        spatial gravity
        throbbing pulse of the world
        essence of the earth

        while wind has:
        fast
        slow
        sound waves
        music
        (while the ‘essence of the wind’ is hinted due to earth knowledge)

        which has 2 fusions currently displaying:
        sound
        velocity

        which when further fused results in the attack:
        hymn of the winds (damn a 4 truth attack o.o that’s halfway there Linley you badass xD)

        hmmm… I had this thought a few days ago but…for fire… isn’t it inevitable that one or more of the truths will have to touch upon fusion + fission? also the basic essence of fire, temperature/ignition and something to do with scale for the truths?

        naturally I have no clue about the other elements 😛 apart from the amazingly universal essence 😛

          1. I will have to double check in a re-read later, if you happen to know which chapter I can find it on then we would be 1 step closer to figuring out the secrets of the universe and the meaning of life xD

            lol joking, but I will certainly add it to the list for when I next post it 😛 yay for the community effort. we have someone making a timeline and now we have me compiling a list of the laws, their truths and insight fusions to date xD

          2. Hmmm, i don’t really remember it being said directly. All i remember was implying connection to annihilating tempest spell ~~

          3. “The mysteries contained within this divine spark which I am fusing with is somewhat similar to the wind-style spell, ‘Void Extermination’”
            book 12, chapter 2

            a laws with supress everything in a area? like a little Gebados prison?

          4. Gaaah, so it was Void Extermination not Annihilating Tempest! Geeeez! I was sure it was other way around, i got mislead by Delia using this spell to wipe Sacred Isle, sigh! Thank you for correcting me! 🙂

          1. I watch documentaries XD fusion releases more energy than fission, it’s how the sun works, hydrogen bomb is stronger than atomic bomb, hydrogen= fusion, when two atoms merge, they don’t just add up, some mass “dissapears”= transforms into energy and that is way more than splitting atoms = fission

          2. yeah but not everything is about power. the sun triggers both and kinda needs both to keep it’s functions going, alongside a crazy level of heat.

            though I can’t see them being fused together without others fusing with them ;P they would work as aspects of the fire element law

          1. Once again, Linley was sent flying. As he fell down onto the ground, a smile actually appeared on his face.

            “I was wrong, wrong!”

            Linley began to laugh loudly. “It isn’t dead. It isn’t dead.”

            ^head canon read this a 2nd time and suggested a possibility lol

          2. It’s telling me that your page is private 😛 Do i really need to log-in again to acces it? Sigh! ~~

          3. that would explain a lot… first time dealing with blogs and the like… I really need an assistant head in the clan too to help finish the site off xD

            edit: doors should be opened 😛 lol

            though we have no members available for breeding… so that will be the responsibility of the 1st bunch who join the Moriah clan xD

          4. Hahah, Moriah made me think of Vampires rather than Foxes 😛 Well, interesting site! 🙂 If more things appear i will be sure to check them out 🙂

        1. hey Sadis…. um.. I mean Sylvie, you said you know programming, so do you know Java??? then can you make a page for CD in wikia?? I think Lord Ren would like that too….?

          um…..*fidget* sorry I peeked at your blog! I couldn’t resist!

          1. I did do Java for a module last year. haven’t touched it since, so would need to get a refresher in it and I can’t do anything too complicated with it.

            I can give it a look sometime, but I have never really used wikia, so it could end badly like my current blog 😛

          2. What does wikia have to do with Java?

            It might be a little help to know javascript when you learn to use wiki markup, but otherwise they should be unrelated imho :/

    1. I’m curious to see what he studies in next for his next divine clone. I’m pretty sure he is going to start learning laws of essence in wind and what ever else he learns since it increases your understanding and the strength so much.

      1. When he was tested as a child, he had excellent affinity for wind & earth – and average affinity for fire (& no mention of other elements). Probably his next research should be in Laws of Fire, and he could get some pointers from both Leylin and O’Brien to help him.

  1. Second ascension to godhood, nice! I like it when Linley gains insight through a bit of guidance and sparring, makes things much more interesting than just meditating.

    Thanks for the chapter Ren and donors!

  2. Thanks for the chapter. So many good things happening. Allies being made, insights being gained, divinity being given by the heavens.

    Ojwin’s gonna have a hard time, Arnas’s gonna have a hard time, Sadista’s going to have a hard time, Adkins is gonna have a hard time. These chapters are making me so happy.

    I guess I like the chapters where they talk about stuff related to the laws and when Linley gains insights into the laws. I’m hoping he doesn’t disregard the fire element and the Way of Destruction and makes another clone instead of absorbing the spark directly, cuz I want him to train in those other elemental laws in the future.

    1. It was already told in Previous chapters that he would split his soul again when he reached divine hood with his Earthen side. He was planning from the very start to train in other elemental laws. Fire would be the next elemental laws he would train considering he had magical affinity for it from the day they did that magic test for aptitude. So the next divine clone will probably Be Fire.

      1. there’s no guarantee fire would be next, just that it is possible as he had an existing affinity and some basic training in it, which means very little after he reached deity and multiplied his practice speed by 100x. any practise he has in other elements could now be swamped after just a few months of practising them 😛

        it’s just as possible that he goes for destruction next or focuses on his 2 current elements before entertaining a 3rd, as fusing them makes for powerful defenses he really needs.

        there has been no sign of any insights into fire so it kinda puts it on the same playing field as any other element at the moment. with his mental strength right now it will truly take him no time at all to gain insights into at least the essence of each element, which means over the next time skip he potentially puts himself on the borders of deity for any of the other elements until he has at least 1 other truth to try and fuse with it (essence being the basics makes it the weakest truth to reach deity with, and he needs attack power more than spontaneous deification :P)

        1. In response to the second paragraph of your post, he’ll have three different souls if we assume that he’s making a clone. So, at a minimum, he’d be training 3 different laws at the same time.

          Edit: Though, I suppose his original might be able to still train in the Earth Essence law. But, that’s assuming that each soul/clone can share insights with each other.

          1. not true. just that he can train upto 3 different laws.

            remember he used his main body alongside his divine clone for 2 whole years to compare and amass 200years worth of practice. his clones can only train their own element, but the main body can support whichever element he chooses. if it turns out he thinks he needs to fuse some truths in a law then he will likely use his main to support the clone, thus he won’t always train in 3 elements.

            so it’s actual “at a maximum he’d be training 3 different laws at the same time” until he gets his next clone. which we first need to see him get insights in a specific element and then pursue it.

          2. Well, at least now we know what IET meant by ‘only flaw’ of creating divine clones was making one’s soul weaker vs soul attacks 🙂 We already seen that insights of clones can be exchanged freely, so overall speed training is not reduced at all.

            I wonder if there is actually some hidden benefit to merging your original body with your own spark. Why would it have only downsides? 😉

          3. how come its fixated at 3 laws
            why not four!
            I think he’ll go for four fire,air,water,earth ~avatar style~
            or fire,air,earth and darkness. since he has no affinity to water! *sigh*

          4. Darkness was not mentioned at all, while water was mentioned to have the same affinity as fire did in the training room.

          5. Tsun, it’s 3 simply because it’s the limit of how man bodies he has.

            and he was advised to focus on a single thing at a time to do it properly rather than slow down thinking about too many things.

            It would be more beneficial for him to practise 1 new element than 2 at the same time, because when he finishes 1 he can make the clone and it’ll progress alone. then he can focus on the next in its entirety.

          6. Actually this ‘advise’ was given by O’Berien, and pretty much proved to be useless later on xD

          7. Sylvia still has a point of main body focusing on 1 new element at max until a new clone is made, regardless if advise was useless.

            Starting with 2 elements at first is ok though, as in Olivier’s case, as you can randomly learn to fuse the elements.

            Ya, advise is really useless, even in terms of the mysteries in a Law, as you can’t do fusion otherwise.
            Actually, is that advise the most negative influence to training a person could have?

  3. Thanks for the chapters:

    Burgess cheats. How is that a spar when you use Godrealm?

    Essence of the Earth
    Strength
    Throbbing Pulse of the World
    3 more to go.

    Any guess on mystery the teleportation like skill is based on?
    Note, Haydson used a teleportation like skill as well. The mystery he was working is similar to the Thobbing pulse of the world too.
    Clay’s mystery is either Strength or ‘Essence of the Earth’

        1. size and power do not mean much young one.

          it is the technique and how you use it that counts. ;P

          yeah… if ‘that’ is the first thing that pops into your head after reading the above lines… then your not much better off than I am in the mental department… xD go back to seclusion training facing a mountain wall for the next 1000 years 😛

          1. Good thing that my mind is still quite normal, as i did not think about anything perverted for once after reading such a comment, hueh. Well, as normal as it can be, so, not really… hah. 😛

        2. I do remember that Haydson did say that. But I also remember Beirut saying that Haydson had insights to the Spatial Gravity aspect of the earth. Unless I’m mistaken somewhere?

          1. You are mistaken, Beirut never said anything like that. How could Haydson, being as weak as he was, have any insights into high-level law of Earth?

          2. Well, Haydson wasn’t really that weak, he just couldn’t take a hit from Oliver’s freaky light/dark soul attack. As a saint he could have had insight into spatial gravity. That might have to do with warping space to be able to “teleport”. We know Haydson had the fake teleportation ability. However just like Linley having insight into pulse of the world as a saint, didn’t make him “strong”. It’s still all about the level of insight not the particular insight.

          3. Checked it again. You’re right, Linley had said something along the lines of “Haydson could understand it, yet I could not.” I thought he was referring to spatial gravity since he and Beirut were talking about it in the paragraph like just before. But he was referring to Haydson’s psuedo-teleport technique.

          4. what would the low level mysteries be then? if there is 6 of them, perhaps they rank from 1 to 6 essence being the first and pulse the sixth, also fast and slow could be 1st and 2nd and when fused equal to the 6-9th which we don’t know yet

            also what was the requirement to become a God o.O if Linley trains his masteries in a fusion of fast and slow I know, but what about those noobs that do not fuse and just learn them seperately? could the condition be just to learn 2 truths fully?

          5. @ yoYoyoYo
            Beirut said to be a god, you need to master 3 truths, or 2 truths and a fusion.

            I’m assuming fusion counts as 1 on the basic truths.

          6. The condition he explained was to learn 3 of the profound mysteries. That was when he was explaining it as if the Law had nine elements to it. So with that I don’t know if it is you need 3 or if it is you need to know a third of the law. I guess if Linley finishes with earth essence and he becomes a god, then it is 33% for full god and not just 3 elements of the law.

          7. I am late joining the discussion. My theory would be if you master any one mysteries you can be demigod, master at least 1/3 mysteries you can be god and master 2/3 mysteries you can be highgod. in order to be full high god you must master all mysteries and lastly to be a paragon you need to combine all mysteries into one.

          8. darkdevils you need to know all the mysteries to be a high god, paragon is just a high god with fused mysteries

          9. darkdevil could be right though.
            Cause, originally, it said
            1-9.99% for demigod, 10-49.99% for God, 50-100% for highgod.

            Beirut said if you master all of the truths, you become. considering the earlier statement, I don’t think that is the exact breakthough point.
            Afterall, Linley has a wind demigod clone, but has not master any of the truths.

          10. Linley did master demigod level of velocity, about the 50% breaktrough I’m confused, could be but wouldn’t they have a chance to fuse some of the remaining truths (under the assumption all high gods know that fusing is right stuff)

          11. My mistake with the 50% stuff. I was certain that that was stated along when they said 1% for demigod and 10% for high god.

            “Linley did master demigod level of velocity”
            I’m not sure. Linley didn’t really have a bottleneck in training that he was supposted to have before reaching demigod.
            I’m going with the idea that most saint train in 1 truths to a high understanding, and is high unlikely to find a fusion law.
            Thus, just by understanding a fusion law by a little bit, it brings them to demigod.

          12. don’t know if you’re still here on already chapter in the past XD but no, fused aspects are nothing more than an equal to one higher truth, t. pulse is an higher truth and only mastering it did he achieve demigod in earth

      1. oh that could be the case! But in that case Haydson would train in it and he is(was) clearly not.
        Awww so confusing with all these contradictions.

        1. clearly was not?

          there always the possibility that he was training in multiple truths at once, similar to how Linley was training in Slow and Fast at once.

        2. It is possible that he only had enough insight to use the “flash step/ teleportation” move, but didn’t really understand the mystery that well. Kind of like how linley first used the resonance wave attack without really understanding it that well.

  4. Thanks for the chapter Ren and the Donors 🙂

    finally, linley mastered the true way to utilize the throbbing pulse of the world become the Profound Mysteries of the ‘Masochist’ XDD

  5. Thanks for the chapter Ren. I finally have caught up to the current chapter I started reading on Wednesday. Since I finally caught up I have made an account.

    On another note I wonder what element Linley will study next.

        1. shush! don’t call him nee-sama! He banished me to GP for that! (he seriously banned me from wuxia world for a while! T.T how mean!)
          Oi oi you’re asking for a early death by calling him that, take a example from our mistakes, GP is truly a horrible place! :'(

          1. While I certainly don’t have permission I’m pretty sure I have premission whatever that is. 😛 😛

          2. Ugh, go to sleep, this comment does not make sense xD Duh, i also should be going to sleep….

          3. It is too early to go to sleep it isn’t even 10:00pm yet and I’m hoping for a new chapter tonight even if it is past midnight.

  6. Hell yes! I’m thinking he fused Throbbing Pulse and Essence of the Earth… or did he reach Deity with his earth clone? I’m not sure.

    All I know is I want that next chapter bad :3

      1. Based on the title of the next chapter it hints strongly that he made the breakthrough and finally fused the last 2 waves into one thus mastering the throbbing pulse of the world.

          1. Duhu, well, yup, yup. But this time we all pretty much agree that it was this fusion into 1 Omega Wave 🙂 Right?

          2. Well when Linley broke through before it was a fused mystery of velocity, so it’s possible he has discovered something about the Throbbing pulse of the world and the essence of the Earth that is some new fusion mystery, maybe the living pulse of the world/ heart beat of the world. That would be more interesting then him justing getting the omega wave.

          3. Then title of next chapter would be hidden, instead of what we can see xD One step at a time 🙂

          4. suspicious… stares at Ren-onesan geeee
            Normaly if he discloses spoilerous chapter title and vital information in preview then it’s just a troll. Could it be he was forced to do it since it is right in the beginning and there would be no preview without it :O

    1. He did not have earth clone yet to begin with xP It will only form around descended divine spark, well, if Linley will not absorb it, and we can guess that he indeed will not 🙂

      1. speaking of which considering that his soul in the original body has absorbed millions of other souls since the spilt for the wind clone, wont the new split be more harmful? afterall a bigger chunk is gonna get lopped of this time….but the earth clone should also be somewhat stronger too.

        1. Nope. I think that it would be a better way to describe it with a pizza. No one wants a with only a few pieces but its much easier and better to eat/have many pizzas or so do i think it. Pizzas ftw.

        2. it’s a 50:50 split same as before. IT should hurt like hell, bt theoretically his soul is stronger. which can lead us to believe he will feel either less pain or more, but not the same amount. of pain.

          it won’t be more harmful, because he strengthened his soul for this purpose. his soul gets weakened but because he strengthened it so much he will still train faster than he did originally.

          so he technically faces no downside of the split as long as he can absorb more souls in the future (and faith energy)

          1. Don’t forget it will also heal over time, not only from absorbing souls. Souls just help him train harder and heal better and fly faster and be stronger.

            10% luck, 20% skill, 15% concentrated power of will, 5% Bebe, and 50% pain…

        3. if your leg is broken it’s the same amount of pain be it a large leg or small leg XD now Linley’s original soul is larger than before which will result in a stronger divine clone than previous(without 20mil souls) and the same amount of pain

  7. Wonder which law Linley will focus on next for a divine clone? And it’s about time he got his earth divine clone. now his adamantine heavy sword can become a divine artifact

    And now Deila can have a 4 way with 3 Linleys. She is gonna be one happy woman having all that lol.

    And we need to see more of the adventures of Strawhat Bebe and his quest to become the pierat king.

      1. Yeah it will still be awhile before he gets a 3rd divine clone but still wonder which law it will focus on. Most probable is either laws of fire or edicts of destruction.

        1. Probably destruction given that he had some affinity with it (he also had moderate affinity with fire, I believe?)

          BTW: 4 way with Delia? Damn, I haven’t thought of that… I think I’m going to surf the net to see if there is some CD rule #34

  8. Aaaaaaah!!!!!!!!
    I am finally free! no more stealth reading and stealth commenting (I had a Cesar discipline teach me profound truths of stealth but I have no affinity to the element of darkness! T.T it was so hard to do!!!
    but now I can return to my original ways of training profound truths of water and necromancy. hehehehe and guess what as a result of my nonstop cursing I made a breakthrough in edicts of death, ergo making me a deity in edicts of death! Bwahahaha!
    I see that my other dimensional hubby made a breakthrough at profound truths of earth too. hmmm… this is a cause for celebration! Let’s partyyyyyyyyy!
    just joking 😛

    Thx for chapter ren-sama! btw you blocked me from logging in only cuz I teased you a bit? that’s soooooo mean! T.T
    I thought you really are trying to ipban meeeee! T.T

      1. Glaaaad to be back BakaB (in short for Bakaborg)
        no Ren-sama threatened to ipban me! I was soooo scared! T.T
        *whisper* don’t call him nee-chan, he get’s mad when you do that!

          1. you make him ‘onii’ or ‘onee’ whenever it’s safe for you!
            *tch* *tch* what a self-interested attitude you have! hmph!
            and how come your calling him ‘onii-chan’ when you’re older than him? (you even called Linley ‘young fellow’ a while ago) Old man???

            *mutter* ren’s his GF! and now he’s feigning ignorance *mutter*

          2. Yuzu, i called Linley like that when acting out character from my fiction xD

            And i can call Ren however i please! ~~ 😀 Within reasonable limits! ha! xD

    1. hey damn ghost, how come you logged in fine yesterday (even posted your annoying usual comment) when I couldn’t even get passed the bot test! you really are not a bot but a ghost ain’t you? =.=

      1. Your character changed quite a bit during this week. It seems that if you don’t feed your addiction to commenting properly you get a ‘bit’ strange, lol 😀

  9. With so many ideas for getting a 3rd, 4th clone, and 5th clone (fire, water, destruction), any thought on those clone’s weapons?

    For every Deity level fights so far, every deity bodies had their own weapons, provided they were not trying to do an instant kill like Dylin (we don’t know what weapon he has cept his gloves).

    Or would his original body have it own weapon? Unlike other deities, due to Dragon Warrior Transformation + unknown gold blood, his original body can fight as well, were others had their original body as saint level power (excluding the fact the original body still have access to Laws, as it doesn’t have power ups of divine power)
    So to fight Linley, he can possibly fight as 3 person at once. Though, it would be 2 currently unless one of the bodies does not uses a weapon.

    1. well, I would think that he does the same as he is for earth.

      he tries to make/get a very good and comfortable weapon, and then infuses his divine power into it…

      OMG O.O

      LINLEY STOP DON’T DO IT!!!!

      he must not use divine power on his weapon until he has a clone in every law muahahaha. then all his clones will crowd around and all fuse their energy into it at the same time muahahaha. lol I joke

      1. Does he have to wait till he has all those clones before putting divine power all at once?

        Yes, with Bladeless, he had to put aside his wind clone to start putting in energy, but that because the weapons are specific to those laws.

        If it is a weapon to us all the laws, does he have put them all at once or can he put in energy one at a time?
        Correct me if I’m wrong at this point.

        1. I have no idea. my brain spat out crazy headcanon idea so I figured I should post it xD

          Linley has kept his bladeless to only be washed over by spiritual power because he wants a weapon that can attune to his throbbing pulse of the earth element. like how he has the bloodviolet for his wind guy (while its main effect is destruction, the sound is wind).

          all we know is that it gains its abilities in proportion to how long the deity infuses power and possibly uses it to kill other deities. I don’t think attuning it is limited, but I think that once an ability is planted it can’t suddenly gain brand new ones. so would the ultimate weapon be when he has reached paragon sovereign for all elements and then tried to fuse all the types of divine power into it at once?

          I have no idea. just the idea sounded cool 😛 but then again Linley earth clone DOES need a good weapon xD

    2. Note: situation where his Original body needs a weapon/body divine body and Original body need to fight at once:

      The Ojwin’s attack on the castle.
      Linley was having a hard time since it was 2v1 and didn’t go all out at first because of that. If his original body had a weapon that matches all of his current elements, he could have fought as well (not sure if it was clone or original in that fight, but that doesn’t matter).

      At the time, using the original body with bladeless to use ‘Throbbing Pulse of the World’ would have been pointless to use on a deity, as incomplete truths are not as effective. Though, he could have use bladeless with the profound truths of velocity, even though it wasn’t a combatiable weapon.

  10. Thanks for the chapter, RWX and donors. Deities in other parts of the world must be getting really curious, since three people became demigods in the same area within a few years.

    1. Pssh no-one cares about them… we wanna see Sadista’s reaction when he realizes his target just doubled his power xD even worse once he begins fusing his earth divine power into his weapon. :3

      because his earth divine power should rank up his mortal bodies defense yet again hehehe. and now that he is training in the essence alongside the throbbing pulse, even separately his attack power just tripled or more. if he fuses them, even at a low level then he becomes a force to be recond with muahahaa

  11. hahaha what a torture. This cliffhangers are killing me. xD I enjoy quite a lot this development after the battle fest we had with the necropolis and the holy isle and the prison breakers. Just good old training and thoughtful explanations as to the laws. So far we have 4 earth, linley knowing 2, 5 wind and linley knowing 4 and fusing each pair. And he should be capable of easily identifying spatial gravity by tuning in with the principles behind his supergravity spell.

    Predictions as to mysteries of fire: essence of fire, combustion, sublimation and maybe ionization (causing plasma and maybe named mystery of intensity).

    Thinking a little into the future, possible combination of laws: fire + wind, wind + water (sound, corrosion).

    As for water, I really don’t care right now. earth is too awesome. xD

  12. i just found the webtoon of this novel and i was wondering why is grandpa Doehring Cowart a woman in the webtoon?are the webtoons loosely based on the LN?

  13. Dear Ren, thank you very much for translating this chapter.
    Dear Sponsor(s), thank you for the kind contributions.
    Dear Author, thank you for writing this marvelous story!
    Wow I am from Singapore too 🙂

  14. “Linley, I know that you train in the Laws of the Earth. By coincidence, I too train in the Laws of the Earth. Let’s have a spar between you and me. What say you?”

    “what you say?”
