Book 15, Priceless Treasure – Chapter 40, Life in the Amethyst Mountains

Within the gorge, a large number of amethyst beasts were surrounding the shores of the lake, and the juvenile amethyst beast was standing atop the head of the amethyst behemoth, staring at the lake.

One amethyst beast after another left the waters of the lake and returned to the shore, all of them hanging their heads.

“All of you are idiots. You can’t even find a few people who fled in there.” The juvenile beast was furious.

Not a single amethyst beast dared to make a sound.

The juvenile beast considered things. “We’ve wasted a great deal of time by the lake already. The Fog Wave day is about to come to an end. We can’t keep wasting time like this.” The juvenile amethyst beast immediately let out a loud shout. “Kiddos, let’s go. We’re leaving this place. Let’s keep killing humans.”

“Roaaaaar!” Instantly, countless amethyst beasts let out excited roars.

They wanted to kill as well. After all, countless years would pass before a Fog Wave, and only on such days were they permitted to come out. Their time on this day was very valuable. If they wasted it all here, they would feel that it hadn’t been worth it.

Roaring, the countless amethyst beasts followed the juvenile amethyst beast away.

“Hmph. Hmph. I’ve memorized those people. I hope you are still alive when the next Fog Wave comes. At that time, I’ll definitely take good care of you.” The clear eyes of the juvenile amethyst beast had a hint of craftiness flash through them.

While continuing on their path of carnage, the many amethyst beasts spread throughout the area. Many humans were caught and killed. Many Deities had been brought in by the Fog Wave, numbering over a hundred million, but they were slaughtered to the point where less than one in ten survived. The survivors, even including those who had originally already been present within the Amethyst Mountains, numbered less than ten million.

After the Blood Sun went down and the Violet Moon rose, the day of the Fog Wave ended.

But of course, because the Amethyst Mountains were perpetually shrouded by that white fog, nobody could see the Blood Sun or the Violet Moon.

However, the Amethyst Mountains operated as if by clockwork. The number of amethysts being blasted out by those 108 Demonic Amethyst Lairs dropped down, returning to their normal state. The forces of the eighteen great clans outside the Amethyst Mountains came to a halt, while feeling excited for the number of amethysts they had procured.

Within the Amethyst Mountains, those amethyst beasts immediately headed back, quickly disappearing within the amethyst mountains. There had been so many amethyst beasts, but now, there were very few Deities remaining.

Linley’s group, due to being within that cave, wasn’t certain of the passage of time. They waited for well over ten hours. Not until the next day did they emerge from the lake.

By the shores of the lake in the gorge, Linley’s group of six sat there, resting.

Jarrod’s face was covered in excitement. Gratefully, he said, “The day of the Fog Wave has finally ended. After this day, we’ll be able to live for yet another hundred million years in peace. I didn’t expect that I, Jarrod, would be able to survive two Fog Wave days in a row.”

“To be able to survive, even losing a divine clone is worth it.” Garlan felt very happy as well.

Linley looked at Jarrod and Garlan. He could tell that the joy they felt sprang from the bottom of their heart. He couldn’t help but feel puzzled, and he asked, “Jarrod, within these Amethyst Mountains, our visibility is limited to one or two hundred meters. It’s always covered by white fog, and we can’t go out. Don’t you care about this at all?”

Linley’s words caused a feeling of agreement in the hearts of Bebe and Olivier.

In the Amethyst Mountains, aside from the day of the Fog Wave, there was virtually no danger at all. But to forever be bound by that powerful restrictive force and not even be able to fly, while at the same time only being able to see to a distance of a hundred meters? To be limited to this situation for a long time would indeed be very boring and painful!

Jarrod and Garlan exchanged a glance. Both of them began to laugh.

Jarrod looked at Linley. “Linley. It isn’t that we don’t want to go out. It’s that there is no way out of this damnable place. Since we can’t go out, what else can we do? We’ll just quietly enjoy life. At least I still have Garlan.”

Garlan’s face turned slightly red. From the gaze she shot at Jarrod, the deep love she bore could faintly be seen. After all, after having been with each other for almost an eternity, they were no longer able to be separated from each other.

“I refuse to believe we can’t leave.” Bebe harrumphed. “Let’s head straight out. If we can’t fly, then we’ll walk to the ends of the Amethyst Mountains. Keep walking! I refuse to believe we can’t walk out. If we walk to the ends, I’ll burrow into the ground and leave by the ground!”

The ground outside the area of the Amethyst Mountains wouldn’t possibly be so hard.

“You won’t be able to make it out!” Garlan urged. “The gravity of the Amethyst Mountains isn’t just ‘up’ or ‘down’. It is as though the entire Amethyst Mountains is exerting gravity in every direction. No matter whether you are on the ground, underground, or in the air, you’ll still be affected by the gravity of the Amethyst Mountains!”

“What?!” Linley was shocked.

He himself had read the descriptions of the profound mysteries of the Laws in that book. With regards to the ‘Gravitational Space’, he knew that it was equivalent to creating a ‘Gravitational Space’ in a certain area. But Linley had never heard of causing an entire area to have a gravitational pull in every direction.

The Amethyst Mountains were like a giant magnet.

No matter whether one was under, to the side of, or above the mountains, one would still suffer the gravitational pull.

“Also, aside from gravity, there’s that strange wind region. There’s no way at all you can leave that region.” Jarrod said, then laughed. “Delia, Linley, thank you so much. Garlan and I will leave now.”

After Jarrod and his wife left, Linley, Delia, Bebe, and Olivier didn’t give up. Although they had heard what Jarrod had said, until they had witnessed it for themselves, they wouldn’t give up. Immediately, the four of them began to head out through a straight line.

The gorge which Linley was in was tens of thousands of kilometers away from the borders of the Amethyst Mountains.

The gravitational power of the Amethyst Mountains was simply too great, and Linley’s group didn’t travel that quickly either. It took them half a month before they reached the edges of the Amethyst Mountains. However, as Linley’s group tried to continue travelling forward, a terrifyingly strong gravitational force immediately affected their entire body, instantly pulling them back into the Amethyst Mountains.

It was very bizarre!

Standing on the stones at the border of the Amethyst Mountains, Linley’s group felt fine. But as soon as they took a single step towards the front, they would suddenly sense that gravitational force tug them back to the Amethyst Mountains.

Linley had never heard of such a bizarre gravitational pull.

Within a Gravitational Space, the power of the gravity would pull downwards. But this gravity actually centered around the Amethyst Mountains and pulled in every direction.

They couldn’t even take a single step outside the Amethyst Mountains. How would they leave?

Linley’s group racked their brains, spending an entire month at the borders, but with nothing to show for it. In the end, helpless, they had chosen to give up. The four chose a mountain hollow that was only a few hundred kilometers away from the border and began to live there.

Within the mountain hollow, Linley’s wind, earth, and fire clones were all training, while Linley’s original body accompanied Delia.

Linley was casually seated on the ground, his back resting against the stone wall. Delia was resting against Linley’s side as well. Delia raised her head to look at Linley. Delia, in her heart, understood that Linley had always desired a life full of excitement. If they truly had to spend eternity here within the Amethyst Mountains…this was simply unimaginable.

Delia still remembered that month they had spent at the borders of the Amethyst Mountains, constantly testing.

Actually, simple tests could have been completed in a month.

However, because Linley and Olivier didn’t want to give up, they had frantically come up with one idea after another to test things out. They all wanted to leave here and return to the Infernal Realm. However, after persisting for a month, Linley had finally given up. Delia understood that in his heart, however, Linley still couldn’t accept it.

“Linley, do you truly want to leave?” Delia said softly. “Perhaps you can use a drop of that blue water drop?”

Linley turned to look at Delia, shaking his head slightly.

Linley had told Delia and Bebe about the ‘Sovereign’s Might’ over the course of the twenty years they had spent in training after the Volcano Titan, ‘Phusro’, had departed. They all knew…that Linley’s final trump card was the ‘Sovereign’s Might’.

By using the Sovereign’s Might, he definitely would be confident in his ability to resist the gravitational pull.

But how could he use it?

Linley shook his head. “Even by using Sovereign’s Might to resist that gravitational pull, it’s hard to say if I’d be able to fly out of the chaotic region. Delia, you should know as well that there were previously Highgods who could resist the gravitational pull, but upon reaching that chaotic region of strange sounding wind, they still were unable to fly out.”

“If I use the Sovereign’s Might and am still unable to get out? That would be disastrous.”

“In addition, Sovereign’s Might is extremely precious. We can’t waste it. Unless something extremely important happens, it can only be used at the point of death.” Linley understood that if used at a critical moment, the Sovereign’s Might could not only save him, it could also save Delia and the others.

This was a game-changing treasure. How could he easily use it up?

“But being here for a trillion years…can you withstand it?” Delia said softly.

Linley stretched his hand out, taking Delia into his arms. Gently, he said, “Delia, it’s just a trillion years. Jarrod was able to withstand it. Why can’t I? By your side, even if I have to spend eternity here, I would be willing.”

Delia felt moved in her heart, and Linley held her all the more tightly.

“Linley, what do you think Sasha and Taylor are like now? What is going on in the Yulan continent?” Lying in Linley’s arms, Delia said softly.

Thinking about his son and daughter, Linley couldn’t help but smile. “They should be doing quite well. Who knows if they are missing me.”

Delia laughed as well. Lifting her head up, she looked at Linley. Pursing her lips, she said, “Of course they miss you, their father. However, most likely Taylor and Sasha won’t have imagined…that their powerful, almighty father is trapped inside a mountain range in the Infernal Realm, and will most likely be here for countless years.”

Linley couldn’t help but laugh as well.

But then, it turned into a sigh. He turned his gaze towards the white fog, as though seeing through it to the Yulan continent. “We are living in the Infernal Realm now. The Yulan continent is too far away from us.”

Living in the Amethyst Mountains, Linley’s mind was very calm. His original body didn’t need to train in any Laws, while Delia had reached the Highgod realm and thus didn’t train. Linley spent every day with Delia, and the two of them lived a leisurely, quiet life.

But of course, Linley’s earth, wind, and fire divine clones continued to train.

Bebe and Olivier were training as well, while occasionally sparring.

Linley’s ‘Elemental Laws of the Wind’, due to focusing on gaining insights into the ‘Sound Waves’ and ‘Music’ profound mysteries at the same time while fusing them, improved at a very slow rate. As for the ‘Elemental Laws of Fire’, this was Linley’s weakest aspect, and so naturally he trained very slowly.

Only in the ‘Profound Laws of the Earth’ and its ‘Worldwalking’ profound mysteries, which Linley wasn’t fusing with any other profound mysteries, did his training speed improve rather quickly.

Living peacefully like this, fifty years quickly passed. Over the course of these years, because he was living in the Amethyst Mountains and constantly was affected by the gravity here, Linley had begun to master the basics of the ‘Gravitational Space’ profound mysteries of the Laws of the Earth. However, ‘Gravitational Space’ was an extremely difficult profound mystery, and so Linley primarily continued to focus on Worldwalking.

Before entering the Amethyst Mountains, Linley had spent nearly twenty years on Worldwalking.

Now that he had spent fifty more years, Linley finally reached the level of mastery in Worldwalking.

Within the mountain hollow, Linley’s divine earth clone, Bebe, and Olivier were together.

“Boss, you really are formidable. You even achieved mastery in Worldwalking!” Bebe said in celebration.

“The Worldwalking profound mystery is naturally connected to the ‘Essence of the Earth’, and it belongs to one of the simpler types of the six profound mysteries of the Laws of the Earth. Despite that, however, I still had to spend over seventy years before breaking through.” Linley sighed.

In the past seventy years, Linley’s greatest improvement had been in the soul!

In the Amethyst Mountains, there was no lack of amethysts!

Even on the grounds of the Amethyst Mountain, if one went in serious search of amethysts, in a single day one would pick up more than ten thousand. If one went to the Demonic Amethyst Lairs, even though they didn’t spew out as many amethysts as they did during the Fog Wave day, when they were in the ‘resting’ phase, the number of amethysts in the crevice weren’t that many, but if one used a giant elemental hand to grab some, most likely in a short period of time, one would be able to seize a million.

Once, when Olivier and Bebe were bored, they had made a trip to the crevice and had spent half a month there, pulling out over a hundred million amethysts. Afterwards, bored, they had come back. In the Amethyst Mountains, these amethysts were simply too worthless.

Others found it hard to refine amethysts, but Linley was different.

After constantly refining amethysts and strengthening his soul, Linley was far more powerful than he had been fifty years ago. After all, during these fifty years, his soul had been continuously growing.

“Now that you have the Worldwalking ability, the Amethyst Mountains are even safer than before.” Olivier sighed. “These rocks are still part of the world. By using the Worldwalking ability, you can fuse with the rocks and pass through them. When the next Fog Wave comes, due to having the Worldwalking ability, you will be better able to preserve yourself.”

Linley nodded slightly.

Only a tenth of Deities trained in the Laws of the Earth, and in that portion, fairly few mastered ‘Worldwalking’. Jarrod and Garlan were unfortunate; neither of them had trained in the Laws of the Earth. They knew that training in Worldwalking was excellent for staying alive in the Amethyst Mountains, but training wasn’t something you could do just because you wanted to, even if you had all the time in the world.

“Boss, give it a try. How does Worldwalking work out?” Bebe’s eyes were gleaming.

Linley laughed. “I wanted to give it a try to begin with.”

Immediately, Linley let himself calm down, then executed the Worldwalking ability. Linley could sense himself completely merge into the boundless elemental essences of the earth. The stones here were naturally filled with earth elemental essences. Linley easily passed through the stone, moving at high speed through it.

“The Boss disappeared. Worldwalking really is interesting.” Bebe laughed.

In Olivier’s heart, he sighed with praise. “Linley truly is formidable. He has three divine clones, and now he has mastered Worldwalking.” However, in Olivier’s heart, he didn’t feel too bad, because in the past few years, he had finally reached the God level in the Laws of Darkness.

The first time using Worldwalking was indeed extremely marvelous.

Linley willingly allowed himself to pass through the stone. “Using Worldwalking really is interesting. However…the Amethyst Mountains is filled with gravitational force. Even when using Worldwalking, my speed is still not fast enough.” Even though his body had completely merged with the earth elemental essences, he was still affected by the power of the gravitational pull.

Linley continued to move forward, traveling for several thousand kilometers.

Suddenly…

“Hey?” Linley suddenly discovered that deep within the rocks of the Amethyst Mountains, there was an empty cave. This cave had no exits at all, but it was within the center of a mountain. It was quite strange.

With but a thought, Linley’s body re-solidified within the cave.

“The cave is quite large.” Linley carefully inspected it. The cave was over ten meters tall and tens of meters wide, but it didn’t have any tunnels nearby. This cave was completely sealed off. Linley could also sense that this cave should have been naturally formed.

There wasn’t a single hint of carving or structuring!

“Naturally formed. How curious.” Linley sighed in amazement.

“Hey, kid of the Four Divine Beasts clan, why’d you end up running over into my place?” Suddenly, a clear voice rang out. Linley’s soul shuddered in fright, and he turned…

That adorable juvenile amethyst beast was standing there, raising its little head and staring at Linley, eyes filled with guile. “I didn’t expect this at all. I thought I’d have to wait until the next Fog Wave before I’d have the chance to come make trouble for you. But you actually ran over to my place.”

“Flee!” Linley didn’t hesitate at all, immediately using the Worldwalking ability.

“Bang!”

Linley slammed hard into the wall, unable to leave.

“You came on my turf, and you thought you would leave, just like that?” The juvenile amethyst beast snorted, eyes filled with self-delight. “Hmph, hmph. Countless of years of boredom, but today, a fun toy has arrived. How should I play with him?”

Linley felt misery in his heart. He had only come to this completely sealed off cave through using the Worldwalking ability. How had he ended up running into this little juvenile amethyst beast?

  1. I think Linley can kill this powerful Amethyst beast with a sovereign drop and possibly repair his sovereign ring with the dead beasts power.

    1. Except so far, he hadn’t managed to kill any of the Amethyst beasts yet, even the weaker ones. It’s hard to tell if they even can die, since they immediately repair any physical wounds and seem impervious to soul attacks.

  2. Why? Just why?
    He should’ve fused the stupid worldwalking law.
    I’m thoroughly disappointed.
    I so want to curse nonstop now.

    Oh, thanks for the chapter btw Overgod Ren

      1. and after he was warned by leylin too 🙁

        that said, if you can’t see how to make the fusion, mastering it at least improves your survival odds.

        In a perfect world of only training, you would practice in all the mysteries and miraculously merge them all into 1 before mastering any, then it’s a straight shot to paragon 😛

        1. I doubt it. It’s too soon. And mastering it doesn’t make it impossible to fuse just harder so he can still do it eventually. I think he just straight up mastered it for the survivability

          1. Yes but Linley tends to make huge breakthroughs in life-threatening situations… so we can hope! 😀

    1. Yeah, I’m extremely disappointed by this too. Hoping this fight or something else gives him sudden insight that fuses it, like what happened with fast and slow turning into the profound truths of velocity.

      1. I was thinking he would try to fuse world walking with the gravitational force, that may even be his ticket out of this place combined with an insight into the laws of wind.

        Seems Linley isn’t suited to peace he makes the most progress when he life is on the line, so this encounter should be good for him.

    2. Who said that he mastered Worldwalking on its own? If it took him 70 years to master (remember that Worldwalking is one of the simple ones) it is because he fused it with The Throbbing Pulse of the World and The Escence of the Earth.

      Now Linley have 3 misteries completly fused and if he manages to fuse another profound mistery like Gravitational Space he will probably reach Highgod level.

      1. “Only in the ‘Profound Laws of the Earth’ and its ‘Worldwalking’ profound mysteries, which Linley wasn’t fusing with any other profound mysteries, did his training speed improve rather quickly.”

        You should read more carefully. Also it has never been stated that a certain number of fusions gets you the Highgod level. It’s always been stated that one needs to master all laws in the element.

        1. I doubt that’s the real case, I bet on a translation error (though I don’t know anything about the raw so it’s just my bet) or an incorrect interpretation. There is no reason why learning misteries on its own should be more dificult the more you already know, it just doesn’t make any sense. And Leylin told Linley to learn The Essence of the Earth to boost his understanding speed in The Throbbing Pulse of the World so it should be that the more you know the easier it is to learn more (not counting fusing).

          What I think that the sentence “Only in the ‘Profound Laws of the Earth’ and its ‘Worldwalking’ profound mysteries, which Linley wasn’t fusing with any other profound mysteries, did his training speed improve rather quickly.” actually mean is that Linley wasn’t fusing Worldwalking with any other profound mistery that he doesn’t already master (example, Gravitational Space)

      2. Mastering any following mysteries is exponentially harder. He was lucky to have Throbbing Pulse of the World as his first mystery, otherwise it would take much much longer than Worldwalking, even without fusing.

      3. It is indeed weird to take 70 years to master Worldwalking, especially given how the author emphasizes his soul (i.e. training speed) is insanely powerful.

          1. frodfry recommended noscript for the latest video ads problem and it works, I might disable it later if the problem goes away. Thanks anyway. 🙂

    1. I only have wuxiaworld enabled in firefox noscript and can post and edit just fine. I disabled adblock for Ren and still get no ads with noscript 🙂

  3. Actually, simple tests could have been completed in a month.

    However, because Linley and Olivier didn’t want to give up …

    The first sentence appears wrong based on next one, should it be ‘…. completed in less than a month’??

    that in the powerful, almighty father
    in the -> even their?

    Living in the Amethyst Mountains, Linley’s mind was very calm. His original body didn’t need to train in any Laws, while Delia had reached the Highgod realm

    Uhh – Linley could’ve worked on Destruction clone or had original body be a coprocessor for one of the others, and Delia certainly has a lot of mysteries to fuse (9 of them! 😛 ). Esp for Delia, she could aim for paragon and keep busy for a dozen Fog Waves without reaching it.

    1. but a few lines later it says they spent a year testing ” However, after persisting for a year, Linley had finally given up”. so maybe it should be less than a year?
      but in that case the line before that, the one “Linley’s group racked their brains, spending an entire month at the borders, but with nothing to show for it.” should also be year.

      anyway, thanks for the chapter ren! this is one of my favorite arcs until now

          1. Yup! The contradictory ‘month’ and ‘year’ actually isn’t a contradiction; in those two phrases, it should be ‘month’.

    1. sounds about right for his wind law, certain individual mysteries and combinations sound like they could be easier to merge based on their similarities. I can personally see the connection between velocity and sound.

      but if we take his earth law for example, essence is the easiest mystery to master, and it can be merged with any of the other mysteries with various degrees of difficulty.

      when it merged with the throbbing pulse he essentially got a dual-point attack that he could fine-tune as necessary (whether soul or material attacks would be more effective on certain targets, and both for a powerful hit on most averages etc)
      but essence could also be merged quite easily it seems with worldwalking, now it’s already been merged it will be trickier to merge with worldwalking since it would need to incorporate the throbbing pulse attribute, but would this result in an attack that can travel unseen and jump out of the very essence itself for the ultimate stealth shot? or would it power up his ability to hide+assimilate with the essence and do things in that form. It may be easier to merge his voidwave sword with something like gravitational space than it would be to merge worldwalking and gravitational space, or to then take the merge of them and merge it to his attack.

      1. Don’t forget that Bloodviolet sword is compatible with velocity and sound – Linley used it before he even learnt sound = music + sound wave. He should be able to fused them right away.
        I guess we’ll have to wait for the next chapter to see if Linley have actually fused any of the mysteries or not.

        1. leylin warned him not to get his priorities backwards.

          practising from the sword is defeating the purpose of actually mastering the mysteries needed to properly create such an attack with any weapon, even if the blood violet were to break he should have the ability to launch those attacks using his wind laws.

          the sword showed him a bit about the previous owner such as appearance and hinted at it’s power and the sheer number of dieties that fell to it, but it cannot teach him any insights into the mysteries. while the sword has that type of attack coded onto it by the previous owner it in no way increases linley’s knowledge or understanding of the mysteries necessary to produce such an attack. proven by the fact he is still working on the 2 mysteries and trying to fuse them, showing he doesn’t magically jump through them. the attack on bloodviolet is only 1 type of attack the bloodviolet fiend used, it can be by no means used to define the fusion as a whole or how linley will use it, he may opt for a different approach in his resulting fusion.

          although I am not sure about the velocity bit, it was also said that the kind of edge it gave off when being used was a signature trait of edicts of destruction. the weapon may only have picked up sound and destruction from it’s previous owner, because it’s been explained that wind high gods all prefer flexible swords to make the best use of their profound mysteries.

          but yeah, just because a weapon he picked up has something, it doesn’t mean squat will influence his practice unless he gains some sudden insights, he still has to progress his training himself, there are no shortcuts.

          1. He only truly met tarosse for a short while in NotG and then with the whole mess created. as for dylin Linley gave him the spark for his child.

            as far as I can remember the only 2 people of value to have ever given linley valuable advice are leylin and beirut, beirut was the first to warn about not rushing his training in the mysteries, while leylin helped sorta with his bottleneck. thinking back it was either leylin or possibly dylin but I personally feel leylin was in a better position to give advice.

            no guarantees really, as it wasn’t even that important a piece to remember except “do things in the correct order from the beginning”

  4. Since world walking can not be used to attack, I think it is pointless to fuse it with his other two mysteries which are for attacking. Best case scenario he learns the gravitational mystery and fuses it with world walking.

    1. gravitwalking lol
      serious now, even if it isn’t used to attack fusing still make the fused mystery stronger/better, or the paragon wouldn’t need to fuse all on one.

    2. the fact is though that all mysteries can be fused together to make those of paragon ranks.

      only the fusing of mysteries doesn’t necessarily mean that it can be weaponized in the same way.

      for example windwalking and wind essence could be easily fused, while velocity also sounds like it could fuse with windwalking to make for extremely fast travel speed while in the essence form or an attack that bypasses defences. maybe the attacks don’t change that much (choosing to have various attacks with only specific fusions for when you need to go easy on a target and make them underestimate you ?)

      also I personally think world walking could be used to attack, if you could merge an attack into the essence to bypass obstacles or defenses and return to hit the specific target. thus making it impossible to “hide” from the attack 😛

    3. I feel that worldwalking seems like cheater ability he can easily passed through the stone and completely merge everything with earth essence in it , stone , wall, metal, weapon and human (maybe) the point is most physical attack will not effective against linley
      sorry for bad english :p

    4. I assume that fusing it would give Linley’s Throbbing Essence attacks new medium to pass through, and significantly increase it’s range. Originally the biggest problem of the Throbbing Pulse of the World was it’s short range.

  5. we are near the end, linley is going to fight 1×1 against the juvenile, so the juvenile is the priceless treasure? and will be tamed? that would be cool.

      1. while this is true, he is currently stuck in an area where he can do nothing but train for ever (apparently)

        why not take his time and fuse everything giving himself an even greater chance of survival?

  6. Damn, why didn’t think about this before. With linleys original body and divine clones, he can have a fivesome with Delia. Too bad they only think about training.

  7. Poor Earth Clone 🙁
    I bet since this smart juvenile is an expert he will spend the next chapter talking ahahah

    For the people who kept talking about sovereigns might i dont think he can use it without his original body present :/ this is only earth Linley original is with Delia

  8. Ammy B. Jr. – “You came to the wrong neighborhood.”
    Linley- “D’oh!”

    Great chapter. Thanks for all your efforts at translating the series, Ren. I’ve been enjoying it quite a bit.

  9. Book 13 chapter 45 quote:
    Beirut couldn’t help but sigh in praise. “Gaining insights while fusing? You are quite intelligent, to not blindly and greedily advance rashly.”
    “I am doing this at the guidance of Mr. Leylin.” Linley said.
    “Right.” Beirut let out a long sigh.
    So did I reading this chapter.

    I think we can now conclude that merging three mysteries actually requires a three-way fusion between each of the basic mysteries:
    throbbing&essence,
    throbbing&worldwaking,
    essence&worldwalking

    Just fusing throbbing&essence, and similarity between essence and worldwalking is not enough, since Linley had no insights into throbbing&worldwalking.
    However, considering he started to gain insights into gravity, he should have focused on that with all that spare time, waiting for another fusion insight, rather than cockblocking himself for thousands or millions of years.
    Fusing worldwalking would give him another avenue of throbing essence attack and increase it’s range IMHO.

  10. Linley experienced the most intense ‘I shouldn’t have entered this room’ moment of his life, he didnt find his parents playing the naked wrestling game but an amethyst based kid with an anger management issue

  11. Hi.
    thanks for tthe chapter.
    English is a third language for me so sorry for any mistake I make in the comments.

    I just stormed through all books in the past week and I have some questions.

    I lost track of the functions of the CD ring I know it have Sovereign’s Might, it purifay souls, it steals souls, but what caused the power up of Linley both to strengthen his soul and his dragon form.

    for the chapter:

    in my opinion the reason Linley did not fuse “Worldwalking” was because it is a fused technique (law) from the beginning which will explain why it is hard to learn
    “”The Worldwalking profound mystery is naturally connected to the ‘Essence of the Earth””

    for blades I think the name has been forgotten because it will change:
    have a power up ad materials go to better blacksmith act act and the name will change

    fusing the “wordwalck” I think he will become a pulse so instead of throwing a spirited attack, he becomes the attack so he can control it if he can control his technique, it will become like the wind attack in the fog or it may allow him to inter the soul of others and read their minds like “Bueru”(not sure how it is written)

        1. The novel through Beirut specifically said that each successive mystery would be harder and take more time, that’s why Highgods are so rare.

    1. maybe if he fused worldwalking with essence he could imitate the wind elements doppelganger mystery 😛 and the fact he merged throbbing pulse could make them all seems alive and hold his “soul presence” xD or it ends up similar to the darkness elements clone type mystery? xD

      I still just find it weird that wind had to have 3 more mysteries and2 of them (fast and slow) sound like they should never have been separate mysteries and only aspects of the same one >.>

  12. Second guess on next chapter’s hidden title:

    Linley get to see the Redbud Sovereign, and that adorable juvenile beast is actually his pet!

  13. Linley you idiot! gah!
    *spews blood out of mouth*
    I’m getting seriously depleted here.

    Looks like Linley may have to use the Sovereign’s Might. Personally, I’d use it to threaten the amethyst beast and make him escort me and my companions out of the mountain range. Buuut wait, the amethyst beast can’t leave that area can he?
    Lot of mysteries going on in these mountains, I hope Linley figures them out.

    1. Well, I’m thinking this is actually a golden opportunity for Linley. Since that beast will have to be alone for trillions of years, it probably won’t kill Linley right away, especially if he is able to distract or entertain it.
      And, if he’s able to befriend it, it’ll be immensely helpful for them in escaping. Remember, this beast can swallow the fog.

  14. Oops, too late to edit comment, but didn’t Linley just say a “trillion years??”

    I thought those two Highgods were there for one hundred million years! That’s kind of a huge difference!

    Also the person I feel the most sorry for is Bebe, who hates being stuck in one place. Poor Bebe :c

  15. Oh my! he’s a toy of some animal now???
    well at least doesn’t have to wait doing nothing for hundreds of years now, he can play with that juvenile something 😉

    Thanks for the chapter! 🙂

  16. Oho. I’m surprised honestly that he didn’t choose to fuse worldwalking. It is well known that if you fuse it while learning it its actually easier than fusing it afterwards. I’m curious if he will remember this fact. I also hope he has his main body begin training in other laws. There are so many different things he could learn.
