Book 13, Gebados – Chapter 33, An Implacable Rage

“Digest a divine spark?” The bald man and the white-robed man, two full Gods, descended from the air. The bald man, Burgess, stared with eyes as round as an ox’s towards Bebe. “Divine sparks are known to be indestructibly tough, and are ten thousand times tougher than even divine artifacts!”

In the Gebados Planar Prison, when experts engaged in battle, no matter what level the battle was at, divine sparks were never destroyed. In terms of toughness, most likely even Linley’s Bloodviolet couldn’t compare to a divine spark.

“In theory, divine sparks should be utterly indestructible.” The white-robed man nodded as well.

“Yeah, divine sparks really are tough. Even though my teeth are really sharp, I’m still not able to chew through and grind them up.” Bebe rubbed his nose in resignation.

“You want to grind them up?” Even Linley, upon hearing these words, wanted to curse at Bebe. However, Bebe’s gaze held a hint of slyness within them, causing Linley to not know whether to laugh or to cry. “Bebe, you little rascal, you are growing more and more sly. I wonder where you are learning this from.”

Bebe intentionally let out a long sigh. “I’m not able to chew and grind them up with my teeth, so, all I can do is just swallow them into my tummy and digest them.”

“Digest it.” Burgess and the other two all felt this was too inconceivable.

“Why not? I’m a divine beast, you know.” Bebe intentionally raised his head high. “In the countless planes of the universe, I’m only the second Godeater Rat to ever exist. There’s quite a few ‘Ba-Serpents’ and ‘Heaven Devouring Beasts’ in the other countless planes of the universe, you know. They aren’t nearly as rare and precious as we Godeater Rats.”

Linley laughed in his heart, “Bebe most likely heard from Lord Beirut that other planes have ‘Ba-Serpents’ and ‘Heaven Devouring Beasts’.”

The Suanni Lion [Heaven Devouring Beast] and the Ba-Serpent, these two types of divine beasts, were the only ones of their kind in the Yulan Plane.

But there were far too many material planes. Dylin and Tarosse, however, had never gone to other planes. Naturally, they didn’t know anything about how many divine beasts the other planes possessed.

“Linley, Bebe, let’s go. Go to our place for a while. Third Brother is waiting for you.” The white-robed man smiled.

“Mr. Leylin?”

Since that mysterious Mr. Leylin had invited him, Linley and Bebe wouldn’t decline, of course. They immediately followed Burgess and the white-robed man and flew back to the earth elemental manor.

In the gorge where Linley had been training.

That rock in the corner of the gorge suddenly disappeared, transforming into Leylin, dressed in a dark red robe. Leylin looked towards the east, his eyes seeming to pierce through the walls of reality, a smile at the corner of his lips. “Hmph. It seems that Highgod hasn’t gone crazy yet. He didn’t immediately come to get revenge.”

“But Linley’s rate of improvement has still exceeded my expectations.” Leylin let out a praising sigh. “That violet longsword of his should be a Highgod artifact. The baleful aura it contains is so strong. Who knows how many experts have died beneath that sword.”

“However, it’s still best to not be overconfident.”

Leylin frowned. “If that Highgod were to suddenly attack…the difference between Linley and a Highgod is simply too great. Even if I wanted to rescue him, I wouldn’t have the time to. It’s best to make preparations early!”

Leylin was capable of easily detecting Anras’ arrival to Mount Copper Gong.

But if it was Sadista, especially if Sadista hid his aura, unless Leylin were to actively utilize his divine sense to search, or to search using some other abilities, he wouldn’t be able to quickly detect Sadista’s presence.

“It seems we need to be careful for a while.” Leylin chuckled, and then, as the earth elemental essence around him shuddered slightly, Leylin disappeared into thin air.

As Linley and the others flew towards this manor which was completely formed from earth elemental essence, Leylin had already arrived within it.

By the time Linley and the others landed in the manor, they saw Leylin seated while leisurely sipping wine.

“Third Brother, Linley and Bebe have come. What do you need them for?” The bald man, Burgess, said loudly.

Leylin put down his cup of wine, smiling as he looked at Linley and Bebe. “The two of you, sit.”

Linley’s heart was filled with questions. “What does Leylin want with us?”

“In the upcoming period of time, it’s best for you to live within this manor. If you need to train, Linley, then you can train within the courtyard.” Leylin bluntly proclaimed his intentions.

Linley and Bebe couldn’t help but feel somewhat astonished.

“Mr. Leylin, live at your place?” Linley was somewhat puzzled.

Leylin laughed loudly. “What? Can it be that there’s something wrong with my place? Or is it that you are afraid that you will damage my residence? Don’t worry. The walls of my residence aren’t that flimsy. Even if you cause some damage to it, I can easily repair it.”

“That’s not what I meant.” Linley hurriedly said. “But since you have asked us to stay, Mr. Leylin, then Bebe and I will bother you with our presence for a time.”

Towards this Lord of Mount Copper Gong, Leylin, Linley and Bebe both felt some reverence. First of all, the person was powerful. Second of all, he truly had treated the two of them quite well.

After all, based on what that Sati said, normally, whenever Leylin gave someone advice, they wouldn’t give that person advice a second time within ten years.

“Linley, I watched quite clearly as you did battle with that God just now. For you to be able to develop a spiritual attack with the ‘Throbbing Pulse of the World’ in such a short period of time truly is quite impressive.” Leylin said in praise.

“Actually, I haven’t fully mastered this attack yet.” Linley felt he was very lucky as well. “At that dangerous moment, I was out of options, and thus I simultaneously used Bloodviolet and the adamantine heavy sword. Luckily for me, the attack of my adamantine heavy sword succeeded. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have been able to kill that God.”

Leylin nodded, and then said seriously, “Linley, there is something I must warn you about.”

“Mr. Leylin, pray tell.” Linley immediately focused.

Leylin nodded. “Linley, to be honest, when you use Bloodviolet in a spiritual attack, the power is too low. All you are doing is applying spiritual energy in a simple manner, passing it through Bloodviolet and using it to attack the opponent’s soul. The only good aspect to this attack is that you included the Profound Mysteries of Music into it.”

“I urge you, at a critical moment when dealing with a powerful foe, don’t use this sort of attack. In terms of spiritual attack power, this attack is far inferior to you using that attack of the ‘Throbbing Pulse of the World’. The difference is too great.”

“The strength is rather low.” Linley knew this very well.

The Hymn of the Wind, although a spiritual attack, was in truth not connected to any deep understanding of any Laws. It just filled Bloodviolet with spiritual energy and utilized Bloodviolet to release that attack.

That was it.

When the ‘Hymn of the Wind’ technique struck the ‘Soul Destroyer’ technique, the illusory Bloodviolet shadows created by the ‘Hymn of the Wind’ were instantly eradicated. Its strength was far inferior.

When Linley had developed the Throbbing Pulse of the World – Voidwave Sword, he discovered that a spiritual attack which contained profound mysteries within it could reach an astonishingly terrifying height.

It can be said that the ‘Hymn of the Wind’ was nothing but a ‘hammer’ created from spiritual energy that pierced through the opponent’s soul.

However, the Throbbing Pulse of the World – Voidwave Sword caused his spiritual energy to pass through the ‘Throbbing Pulse of the World’ principles and instantly release millions of surges of spiritual ripples. The countless spiritual ripples miraculously then formed in an organized manner into a comprehensive whole, that illusory sword shadow! The illusory sword shadow, upon striking the soul, would release those countless surges of sword ripples. Reinforcing each other, the power of those countless sword ripples would suddenly layer atop each other, reaching an extreme!

It was much like ordinary white paper. Even you folded it up into a stick, if you used a lot of force, you would still break it. However, if you were to chop the paper into hundreds of strips, and then braid those strips into a cohesive whole, then its endurance would be a hundred times greater and would be able to sustain a weight of even hundreds of kilograms.

The effectiveness of the ‘braiding’ of the Profound Mysteries of the Throbbing Pulse of the World was hundreds of times greater than simple braiding.

“The Hymn of the Wind spiritual attack is a rather low level one. Only after fusing with the profound mysteries of the Laws will one’s attack power increase.” Linley understood this.

Leylin laughed, “If you had used your adamantine heavy sword to strike that God’s spear, then your spiritual attacks would most likely have cancelled out! His spiritual attack’s power is on par with yours.”

Leylin, given his experience and judgement, was easily able to make this determination.

“Oh?” Linley thought back to that faint red spear shadow as well. That spear shadow was indeed quite powerful. “If I didn’t have that damaged soul-protecting Sovereign artifact, I most likely wouldn’t have been able to take a soul attack on that level.”

“Linley, there’s something I’m mystified about.”

Leylin frowned as he looked at Linley. “That dying blow spiritual attack the God released…the soul of even most Gods wouldn’t have been able to take it, much less yours. How is it that you seem to be completely unaffected?”

This question had stumped Leylin for quite a while.

“This…” Linley didn’t know what to say.

Could it be that he would tell Leylin that he had a damaged soul-protecting Sovereign artifact? A Sovereign artifact, even a damaged one, was more than enough to cause a Highgod to become red-eyed with desire.

“Haha, I’m being rude.” Leylin laughed loudly. “I shouldn’t ask a question like this. Linley, just live nearby for now. If you have any training questions, you can ask me.”

“Alright.” Linley nodded.

“You need to master the spiritual attack aspects of the Throbbing Pulse of the World as soon as possible,” Leylin laughed.

Linley and Bebe thus began living within the manor and quietly training within. Occasionally, when puzzled, Leylin would use some examples to help explain to Linley. Sometimes, Linley would suddenly understand. If he didn’t understand, then Leylin would have Linley to slowly think about it on his own.

All Leylin could do with regards to training was occasionally give some guidance.

Linley’s training days were very happy and peaceful, but in the Rohault Empire, that Highgod, Sadista, had been in a terrible mood in recent days.

Within the courtyard, Sadista was currently dining with his two Gods. Only, Sadista’s face was very gloomy, and the two Gods didn’t dare to make any sound.

“Bang!”

Sadista slammed the crystal wineglass onto the table, then rose and walked out of the living room. Because Sadista had used a little too much force, the crystal wineglass actually shattered.

The two Gods glanced at each other.

“Danny [Dan’ni], ever since Anras died, during this past month, Lord Sadista has been in a terrible mood. How should we resolve this?” The middle-aged man with short silver hair said.

They were frustrated as well.

If Sadista was always in such a gloomy, dark mood, their lives wouldn’t be comfortable either. They would be in the Yulan Plane for nearly a thousand years, after all. If they had to spend a thousand years in nervousness, that would indeed be quite miserable.

“Right. This has to be resolved. I’ll go discuss this matter with Uncle.” That youngster, Danny, said. Danny was Sadista’s nephew. Thus, it fell upon him to deal with this.

Sadista was wearing a noble, lavish violet robe. Standing in the beautiful flower gardens, he was in a very bad mood, despite how beautiful the flowers were.

“This Linley is a mere Demigod. In order to kill him, Anras died! And right now, I still can’t go act against him!” Sadista’s heart was filled with repressed anger.

He was indeed capable of killing Linley, and perhaps Beirut wouldn’t find out.

But if Beirut did find out, then he, Sadista, wouldn’t be able to enter the Necropolis of the Gods.

“The Necropolis of the Gods matters more!” Sadista kept on reminding himself. For the sake of the Necropolis of the Gods, he had to choose to remain in hiding and not go deal with Linley. But he still felt angry and resentful. After all, Linley was only a Demigod. How could Sadista not vent this anger in his heart?

Smoldering rage!

“Uncle.” A sound rang out.

Sadista glanced over. Calmly, he said, “Oh, Danny. What is it?”

“Uncle, in the past month, I’ve seen that you are always in a bad mood. Anras is dead and gone. In addition, he was only a God. There’s no need to care so much about it.” Danny said.

Sadista snorted but didn’t say anything.

He didn’t care about a God. What made him miserable was that he had suffered a setback, but could only endure instead of venting his anger. If he had been angered by an expert, that was one thing. But in this case, he had been angered by a Demigod.

How could he calm down?

He wanted to go kill him, but what if Beirut found out? What then?

Smoldering, suppressed rage!

    1. imagine poor old wargod, he has been trying to get god deity sparks for thousands of years, going on extremely dangerous expeditions to the necropolis, and in the end, failed to get one on his own, and has to sell himself to slavery to get one.

      Linley goes on a sightseeing trip on a mission to drink good wine and relax, and comes home with a bag of them…

      1. It’s just cuz O’Brien doesn’t have enough backbone to fight people in same level or above. they just know how to showoff to people below them.
        so is it that amazing to see them not making any improvements without licking legs of people above.

          1. Didn’t O’Brien get a God spark? It may be a little difficult for Linley to kill him “with ease.” I highly doubt that O’Brien would be able to injure Linley with a spiritual attack, but who knows.

          2. O’Brien is really weak for a god, because he has a terrible practise speed, had to fuse sparks to become both a demi and full god and the only signs of him having a spiritual attack is the effect his voice used to have on Linley when he was a saint.

            Anras is definitely stronger than O’Brien and since Linley managed to kill him O’Brien won’t stand much of a chance against a DB warrior with both high speed and defence and a spiritual capable of killing a god.
            and thanks to the sovereign artifact any attempt at spiritually attacking Linley would prove futile anyways xD

          3. He got Fire style God spark that even with original user was not that strong anyway. And until he finishes absorbing it and learning how to use it, Linley will become even more of a monster 😛

          1. He has quite a bit descendants, though? Well, he never had intercourse with a Diety… Or maybe he did in the past with Catherine? 😛

          2. Yeah, Linley and Bebe return to DB castle only to find O’Berien and Catherine ‘playing’ in the garden 😀

        btw, i strongly feels that the 4th name from your list (the one below sylvie) is described wrongly. it is a conflict of interest there. or as linley pointed out, akin to ‘custodial theft’

        —————————

          1. as long as it is ren’s house.

            p.s : someone speculated in the forum that ren is actually IET in disguise 😆 . bet that would make a nice surprise.

          2. I really don’t think it would be physically possible for IET to do all of this here and keep on creating new novels at the same time xD

          1. that is a nebula or supernova, not sure anymore, it might be that quadcopter I was flying around her house though

          1. if made into tv shows, either beat any current record of having the most season, or the shortest (due to being axed)

  1. Thanks a lot godlike Ren

    Oh, btw about the Rasengan and 20 divines clones stuff on my comment 2 chaps ago.

    20 clones is really 可能 in my opinion, because IF, like in Naruto, elements can fused, we can get for example:
    clone of Fire + clone of Water = clone of gas
    Wind+Water = Ice
    Wind+Fire = Sparks I guess
    and a lot more

    1. just remember this, naruto is a japanese thing. while IET is chinese, their research is in different fields and elements themselves show no signs of being truly fuseable, just useable at the same time in conjunction.

      so the max possible clones are 11 and main, while realistically the normal max is 8 or 9

      read up about the chinese 5 element beliefs and you may see what the rest of us were talking about after your post.

      also: lightning exists as an element here, no need for sparks. and ice falls into the water category.

        1. we had a massive debate that kinda spanned over the last 2 chapters.

          basically we all know that mysteries in an element can be fused and those who do so are paragons that are highly treasured by sovereigns.

          however there are aspects of wind and earth that are similar in that they use/rely on vibration, the problem is that they are only 1 small aspect of the element and thus cannot be used as a basis for fusing elements.

          what Olivier did was a first, but it is special because he did it with the divine light and divine dark powers. 2 equally opposite elements that share a common root. they are part of a divine set while the other 5 elements are basically part of the Chinese pentagonal relationship. thus if element fusing will occur it would have to be when Linley has acquired a clone in the 5 elements and manages to equate each element with each other.

          (so far vibrations is practically present in 3 of the 5 elements, wind and earth are known, fire assumed due to its nature. lightning does not yet have a clear example while water can form ice which is the reduction of vibrations)
          ^he just needs to do this for every aspect of each element until he manages to fuse them, not something that should happen anytime soon :S

          as for the 4 edicts, they are based on one’s soul nature. he has a sword-shaped soul which suggests to leylin a potential for destruction, but he didn’t have the pure soul needed to train in the edicts of death, nor does he seems to meet the requirements for fate or life.

          so as for clones Linley is currently limited to the 8 at most alongside his main body.

          1. Ohh I see thanks. I was somewhat kinda busy and didn’t have the time to read comments lately :). But your summary is great and now I guess I don’t need to go back and read them, now that I read it :).

          2. It’s not a problem. If I post clear summaries of a previous debate early on in the new chapter. There is a greater chance of people not asking the same questions, and also continuing to participate by focusing on the current chapter.
            Some titles cause mistaken assumptions and people reinforce them with bad incomplete speculations. so it’s best they remember nothing is definite until stated in the story, and that what is summarized is the closest we can logically assume with what we know (and can agree on to some degree)

          3. Was busy most of the day, so I haven’t had a chance to reply to this

            Problem with the fusion element theory is what happened with Olivier and what Beirut implies with what he knows.
            1) Olivier just said it happened when his soul was damaged post his duel. This means it has something to do with the soul rather then the elements themselves.
            2) Beirut said other people have gotten fusion. I find it unlikely that if other did it, that they were limited only those 2 options of light and dark, or the remaining 5.

          4. water doesn’t have vibrations? what about jacuzzi haha I don’t really see vibrations in fire but if everything has it’s frequency and f= vibrations then it has

          5. all matter at its core are just a mass of energy and vibrations. however in this story each element is represented in specific ways. so while water certainly has vibrations, all we know is that it’s ability to form ice means it can reduce vibrations rather than strengthen them ;P

          6. Linley should atleast get some profound truths of waves, be it water or sound.

            So while he probably would have trouble to “translate” the profound pulses of the earth straight into an water law, if he walks it over the air domain he should be able to get a vibration/wave based water law

          7. waves behave different in different conditions, thus moves in an element should not be transferable to other elements, nor would there be a point to it.

            in wind you have the dimensional decapitator, to replicate that in water likely the best you could aim for would be a water cutter attack which stops at being a physical cutting attack that sounds blockable as it fires in 1 direction and only cuts matter not space like the wind element did.

            plus the pulse in the earth is alive as compared to his current other insights which are all none-living related mysteries by appearance.

        2. Oh, Syl. I just noticed, waa our girls in Wuxiaworld are pretty talkative, that’s great.

          In my neighborhood, they are just so shy, I can’t even have an interesting two-sided conversation.

          Or it’s just because I’m asian I guess.

          1. they tend to be quite chatty over here, could just be the whole different mindset of western vs eastern cultures and upbringing.

            the problem is out of the chatty ones, very few are of cute, considerate quality. It’s a rising dilemma :s all the innocents are disappearing before i can find them v.v

          2. I’m an asian in a “western country”, with only western people living around. I guess social insertion becomes harder in this situation 😮

          3. Humu, not many hath mastered true art of conversation. When is seemingly ‘act’ being yourself, and when is it something entirely different? Is my mask that i wear besides you a part of me, or, just a mask that i wear? 🙂

          4. Does not matter if you name it wearing a mask or having split personalities, it’s the same thing 🙂

  2. If I didn’t have that damaged soul-protecting Sovereign artifact, I most likely wouldn’t have been able to take that a soul attack on that level.”

    Ren you do not that

    If I didn’t have that damaged soul-protecting Sovereign artifact, I most likely wouldn’t have been able to take a soul attack on that level.”

  3. Rage… growing!

    It just isn’t Coiling Dragon if there isn’t some ridiculously high-leveled opponent who hates the main character with an all-consuming passion.

    1. please read my comment reply to totokk a little further up.

      It’s the summary of the fusing element debate from the last 2 chapters.

      so it’s best to ask questions relevant up to the current chapter and not based on previous community speculation. :3 the whole fusing element questions only happened because of the chapter title, the chapter itself had nothing to do with fusing anything, it was just a fight where he relied on attacks from his 2 elements to try to fight back.

    1. My dear fellow, you must more details with your plot with revenge. Let him be sliced and dice then be serve for dinner for bebe.

      ~ Sincerely the bebe clan mysterious crazy leader!

  4. Not much to discuss this chapter.

    Other then the fact Linley already know that attack was wrong considering from what Dylin said.

    Infact, if it wasn’t for the speed aspect, his law of winds is kinda week since he hasn’t master any of the truths and only has a fusion law to make him strong.

  5. Thanks for the chapter.

    Seems to me Linley might want to think about absorbing that Fire God Spark since he does have a average capability in it, according to when he was tested as a youth.

    Guess we’ll see. Course I look forward to him learning most if not all the different affinities. With what was said in earlier chapter Destruction may be his next one to learn.

    Looking forward to the next chapter.

    1. nah, he can wait with the spark fusing until his final form, and even then it might be better to just develop naturally and keep a saint body as a spare…

      1. it’s always best t fuse your own. if the people had a real choice of just time deciding, they would always make their own.

        the problem is the idiots of the community who get stuck at saint for millions of years are the ones truly in desperate need of fusing a spark.

        people like Linley who hold a high enough talent in an element or 2 given time would be capable of forming their own core for each element.

        I also get the feeling that keeping the main body is a prerequisite for something and that losing it due to fusing is the height of hopelessness.
        that rainbow core is too important sounding to give up.

  6. 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!
    Sponsor: ♥BN of Colorado♥

  7. Thanks for chapter!
    ~~~~~~~~
    And now do we have another of Linley powerspikes. This time with a teacher around. ^^ ‘ IET seems like to create different kinds of scenarios with now a second teacher, just when i thought Linley is too old to have one. Then again Leylin is muuuch older than Linley so i guess it could count as a teacher-student age.

  8. I live again! Waking from a nasty cold only find a few chapters of coiling dragon.
    This is the best medicine, so I’m going back to sleep to wait for some more.

    ~ Cough, cough, throat still hurts for the heart feels happy!

  9. Thanks for the chapters, RWX. And thanks to BN for sponsoring these amazing three chapters.

    As expected, Bebe eats gods — their sparks. Now I want to know how it benefits him. I doubt he absorbs the knowledge of the Laws, so it has to be something like strengthening the soul, which leads to enhancing training efficiency.

    1. i wonder about that… the spark is different from a soul, so it shouldn’t…

      might strengthen his affinity for the sparks ellement?

      we know that binding yourself to a spark increases the affinity, so it could be logical…

    2. I doubt that. Otherwise wouldn’t there be any deities left since Beirut wants to give Bebe food(Deitiy sparks.) At most it could give him a soul which refines in his stomach. But … I really dont think he or Godeaters would have such a Hax ability.

      1. Funniest and most troll option would be if he did send rest of his Gods alone to kill Linley and those ‘2’ Gods with him. Result being Linley killing next God or two, making Sadista interfere himself, and getting killed by Leylin in response 😀

  10. I have started to wounder, if you can layer your fields for a stronger god realm, why doesn’t everyone with more than one divine clone do it? especially the guys that use their field to incapacitate other gods…

    1. the godrealm is mostly what distinguishes the most obvious power difference between demigods and gods. having multiple clones will surely help nuetralize the godrealm, however you still have to fight which means you need to have spent enough time searching for insights to develop your attacks.

      Linley was already abnormal in that he got to deity rank so young.even at that time the vast majority of deities and saints have much worse practice speeds. because he had the coiling dragon ring he could not only heal his soul in a short while, he even strengthen it many times over thanks to refining 120-140million souls. This further sped up his rate of practice meaning he could invest time in more than a single element at a time (his attacks were already quite beastly for a demigod so no worries there about him losing to another demigod)

      because of his strengthened soul and fast practise, even after splitting his soul, it is still strong enough to practice faster than before and survive spiritual attacks (with all his guards up) and thus he can consider making a 3rd demigod clone in a short period of time granting that he gets the needed insights.

      for most other deities this isn’t an option because they will have already spent insane lengths of time just trying to get to deity a single time, a lot of them will opt to fuse with the spark due to not knowing better, and even if they split for clones they would become even weaker for a looooong time.

      In the end, it only works best for a small fraction of people who have the freedom to do such things.

      1. we have seen a few people with multiple devine bodies, that have been using their god realm to attack or control a battle feild. But they only use a single field, even though they clearly could have layered it for a stronger effect.

        Take Anras for example. In an situation where he needed to quickly kill and get away he used the god realm of only one of his bodies, giving linley a chance to layer and defeat his realm. If he had layered up, that would have made his kill much more secure, and Linley would have died instead. And this is a guy that even decided to use a sneak attack to kill an inferior foe, so no “not going all out due to opponent only being a demigod” really going on here… and he isn’t the first god with multiple bodies that failed to layer their realms when they desperately wanted to kill someone.

        1. yes i get your point but consider this.

          Linley has a main body and Anras’ didn’t. Linley could use his body to channel the god realms of both his clones at the same time thus layering it.

          so far all the enemies we see are of the powerful caste, they survived so long in Gebados after all, but there are countless planes, and it is infinitely easier for people to fuse with a spark then make their own.

          all the strong people we see so far tend to not have a main body, thus can’t layer, and are also clearly stronger and would have no need to layer it. in 1v1, a gods god realm will pretty much spell certain death for demigods.

          plus deity fights when ignoring godrealm is usually a contest of applied insights which heavily favours the god ver demigod also.

          the prerequisite for layering fields would be to still possess a main body which I assume a lot of the weaker people in gebados no longer have.

          didn’t Adkins take over the O’Brien empire with a force of like 100 deities or so? yet we only know of the top4 (then5 with ojwin) members. so we have a very skewed worldview and must be careful to still consider what we haven’t seen.

          1. O GOD you said Adkins, stupid me! Geeeez. Yeah, he has many many many Dieties. Guuuuh, lag. Lag! I blame lag! Brain lag! xD

          2. Lately Ren posts chapters at later times at weekends -.- I F5 but i think that we will get it only in 2-3 hours ~~ Unless something strange will happen 😛

    2. 1)overconfident.
      2)arrogant.
      3)most of the time they chose weaker opponent to bully instead of the own ‘size’
      4)plain stupid
      5)undefined reason (iet forgot)
      6)all of the above

      1. Or other simple reason. You can only layer god-realms if all of sparks are your own, created from your insights -,^ How come noone thought about it yet? 😛

        1. but godrealm doesn’t care about insights, it’s kinda just there for each rank. it makes a good amount of sense if we think the person needs to channel it through a main body because each divine clones power stop them from using another at the same time, with the main body being able to use any power at its disposal.

          if it were just spark creation based how would the restriction/allowance work to decide whether you can layer or not?

          1. My main point is that spark is ceated for this one specific soul, insights are just means of achieving it, not main focus point.

            How could it work? In the simpliest way, maybe? 😉

            You can’t be affected by multiple Godrealms unless they come from One Person’s own insights. (sparks created as result of this person’s insights)

            You can’t ultize 2 Godrealms from one body unless you have your own divine sparks from your insights (sparks created as result of this person’s insights)

            If multiple Godrealms are used on one person, and none of Divine Sparks creating them come from one person’s insights, then only the strongest one affects target, when others are only being in it’s way, actually lowering it’s power because of incompatibility. Trying to create ‘combo’ with no proper Sparks would result in failure. That’s probably why 10 Demigods can’t really gang up on God to freeze him by their Godrealms and kill him. 😉

          2. I think you can’t use this trick for offense, only for neutralizing the influence of the opponent’s godrealm on your body to some extent. Anras couldn’t have used his demigod spark to further restrain Linley because a demigod spark can’t influence Linley at all. If he had two god sparks, then that would be another story. Ojwin was trying to interfere as little as possible back then. I don’t think we have another good example, do we? godrealm only restrains those with lower ranks than the user.

          3. And why would that be? If you can use such a technique for defense, you should totally be able to use it for offense, too. Duh, we can only wait for IET to tell us 🙂 Until then i will stick to my theory ^.^

          4. my thoughts were mixed there. basically, the question of restraining power is only valid if it is a higher ranked vs a lower ranked god, and we have only a couple examples of that. more to the point, a higher ranked spark vs a lower ranked spark. I assume foreign spark vs personal spark is unimportant for godrealm.

          5. We were told that O’Berien and Catherine were using their godrealms when fighting 5000 years ago. Yet so far none of same-level combatants used it in fights.

            Maybe because it’s truly ineffective vs people of same rank.

            But then, both higher level sparks and “working tohether sparks” should be usable to restrain in the same way.

          6. Hm, I can’t recall the thing about War God and High Priest. Anyway, I don’t think 3 demigod sparks with 3 godrealms layered on top of each other could influence a single full god spark, but those three could defend well enough against one full god spark.

    3. Pretty sure using a godrealm requires divine power, so most would probably not want to use it unnecessarily since divine power requires time (and I think faith?) to recover.

      1. I can’t remember if it needs divine power or not, but yes they recover their divine power extremely slowly. which is why it is dangerous for deities to take too much physical damage in a short time span even if destroying their body is not enough to kill them.

        but the main reason is because godrealms only work on the lower ranks, 2 gods are able to shrug off each others godrealms as if it weren’t there. usually, deities don’t care about those beneath them as the power gap is quite normally insurmountable.

  11. Hi Ren ,

    Facing some issue while only accessing the wuxia world though mobile , i get directed some site called proengolf.com always.

    I have got my mobile scanned several times .
    so you have any idea what the issue seems to be ?

  12. Title on next chapter: “Darkness and Flame”

    So Linley kills Darkness style God and in few chapters gives spark to Cesar? 😀 Told ya, sparks for everyone! xD

  13. Even you folded it up into a stick, if you used a lot of force, you would still break it.
