Book 20, Jindan Upgrade, Chapter 20 – Half-Step Daofather

The demon king wielded a long black staff in his hands. Surrounding him were the ten dark-red demon commanders! They simply watched from afar, allowing the many demons under their commands to surround and assault the ten Empyrean Gods.

Ji Ning and the others knew that each time, the leaders of the demon army would allow the ordinary demons to attack first for a time. Only later would the demon commanders and demon king attack. Thus, the initial period of time when only the ordinary demon soldiers were attacking was extremely critical; they had to seize that period of time to wipe out as many of the ordinary demons as they could.

It was a wild, berserk battle.

Boom! Every so often, Ning would ram forwards, relying on his tough divine body to smash into the demons and knock them asunder. At other times, he would use a sword-art that would transform his swords into a black hole, guiding the demons off to one side. In short, he used every method he could think of to ensure that the demons would not be able to completely surround and restrain him.

“Intriguing.” The demon king pointed towards the distant Ning with a slender, knife-like claw. “Look at that new Empyrean God. His sword-arts are quite powerful, and he’s killing the fastest.”

“This divine body is quite tough. Our children’s weapons and attacks are negligible to him.”

“His sword-arts are quite odd.”

The demon king and the dark-red demon commanders chatted amongst themselves.

“According to what Purgatory said, this new Empyrean God is named Darknorth.” The demon king chuckled. “Number three, go and play with him a bit.”

“Alright.” Instantly, a muscular demon commander who was wielding a shield in each of his two hands charged forward towards Ning. The ordinary demons all parted before this demon commander, clearing a path for him. Soon, he closed in on Ji Ning.

“Ji Ning, be careful.”

“Brother Darknoth, be careful.”

“It’s the twinshield commander!”

The other nine Empyrean Gods hurriedly sent mental messages over to Ning. Ning felt a sense of shock in his heart as well. Because Feiyou and the other Empyrean Gods had experienced multiple battles against the demon king and his commanders, they had naturally memorized the appearances of quite a few of them. Each of the commanders had their own unique traits, and this one, the ‘twinshield commander’, possessed enormous strength and was extremely skilled in defense.

“Of the demon king’s commanders, the twinshield commander is probably the best counter to me.” This thought flashed through Ning’s mind as the dark-red twinshield commander came charging towards him.

“Die!” Twin shields in hand, the demon commander rammed towards Ning. These two shields protected almost every single inch of his body. No matter how formidable Ning’s sword-arts were, there was no way for him to touch this foe.

“Heavenbreaker stance!” Ning charged forward as well, his twin swords becoming as heavy as mountains. He sent them smashing downwards with an aura of power like Pangu cleaving apart Heaven and Earth.

BOOM!

The two swords smote down upon the shields, but the demon commander was still able to maintain his charge towards Ning with shields raised. Clearly, Ning didn’t have any advantages in terms of strength. The many ordinary demons around him also joined in the fight, wildly assaulting Ning and causing his movements to turn chaotic. Now, he truly understood why the demons he had so easily killed were said to be truly deadly.

While Ning was forced to concentrate on the demon commander, the ordinary demons continued to launch stabbing strikes against him, making his life miserable.

“Three heads, six arms!” Ning’s body momentarily blurred as he executed the [Three Heads, Six Arms] divine ability. Instantly, six streaks of sword-light began to fly about, sweeping the area around him clear of lesser demons while completely stalemating the twin bucklers.

“Number four, you go as well,” the distant demon king instructed.

“Yes.”

The dark-red demon commander referred to as ‘number four’ also had six arms. Each of his six arms held a whip, and he let out a howl as he charged towards Ning. His arrival instantly put Ning into an even more dangerous situation.

If Ning was just fighting against this ‘number four’ by himself, he would be able to easily defend against him. In fact, he would even hold the advantage. But right now, the twin shields were the primary threat, while the six whips of ‘number four’ coiled about his swords, making it difficult for Ning to execute his sword-arts. At the same time, the lesser demons continuously charged forward, trying to trap and constrict Ning.

“ARUUUUUUU!” The two demon commanders and many lesser demon furiously assaulted Ning like a wave that was about to drown him.

“Not good.”

“I’ll go!”

The person nearest to Ning was the most muscular of the ten Empyrean Gods, Empyrean God Zhenbu. Letting out a mighty roar, he slaughtered a path through his opponents and charged straight towards the twinshield demon commander. The twinshield commander had been in the middle of launching an attack against Ning, and so was only able to use a single shield to defend against the valiant Zhenbu.

“F*ck off!” Zhenbu’s longspear pierced out, and a mighty whirlpool appeared at the tip of it. It latched onto the bottom of the shield, tugging it straight into the heart of the whirlpool. Zhenbu then gave the spear a mighty tug.

This attack contained a strange force that was both upwards and downwards. Even the twinshield commander was unable to withstand it, and he was sent flying into the air.

“Perfect.”

Sword-light flashed.

[Starseizing Hand]!

Swordforce

Heartforce!

[Brightmoon] sword-art, Blood Drop stance!

This was Ning’s fastest sword of all. As the twinshield commander flew into the air, an opening was revealed in his defenses. Ning saw it and immediately stabbed his sword into the demon commander’s chest. “Arghh!” The twinshield commander glared furiously at Ning, then vanished into thin air. Even his shield vanished with him.

“Well struck!”

“Excellent!”

“One down.”

The other nine Empyrean Gods instantly celebrated. They had never imagined that Ning, forced into such dire straits, would actually be able to slay the twinshield commander.

In truth, as soon as he been forced into that dire situation, Ning had immediately prepared to unleash his full power. However, in a situation like that, he would at most be able to force the enemy back a bit. Fortunately, Zhenbu had also charged over, forcing the twinshield commander to reveal a flaw in his defenses and giving Ning the chance to launch a full-strength attack to kill him.

“Beautiful.” Zhenbu looked towards Ning, laughing loudly, “Even if I didn’t intervene, a puny demon like that wouldn’t have been able to do anything to you, brother Darknorth.”

Ning, however, felt a complicated feeling in his heart.

In truth, ever since he had arrived at Myriad Mountains Island, Ning had felt lumps in his throat whenever he looked at these nine Empyrean Gods, especially Zhenbu and Autumnwing, who belonged to the Seamless Gate. This was because he knew very well that their two alliances had already entered a deadly war in the outside world! But here in Undermoon Lake, none of the Empyrean Gods knew of the war. These nine Empyrean Gods in particular had undergone many calamities together; they had long ago begun to view each other as brothers for life.

“It doesn’t matter. They might be of the Seamless Gate, but they are both my brothers,” Ning mused to himself as he stared at the heroic Zhenbu, who had been so concerned about him.

After the twinshield commander was slain, the six-armed demon commander hurriedly retreated.

The distant demon king frowned upon seeing this happen.

“Hm?” The demon king ordered with a frown, “Attack.”

The eight demon commanders instantly grew excited. The demon king gently stroked the golden gourd by his waist, then hoisted his black longstaff with a cold smile and strode towards Ning. “The rest of you can deal with the other nine. Leave this Empyrean God Darknorth to me.”

“Understood.”

“Empyrean God Darknorth is doomed.”

“Doomed.”

The demon commanders all charged towards their respective targets. Aside from Ning, whom they weren’t familiar with, they knew the Empyrean Gods quite well. They were able to choose whichever target suited them the most, but the Empyrean Gods didn’t have that luxury; they were being surrounded and attacked by too many demons! They were also far slower than the demon commanders in movement speed.

“Careful. They are all coming.” Feiyou let out a loud roar. This was the critical moment; when the demon commanders all attacked in unison, the Empyrean Gods would easily be at risk of death or injury!

Boom! Boom! Boom!

The demon commanders battled furiously against their respective Empyrean God opponents, with crowds of lesser demons assisting them!

As for Ning, however…he was under the attack of the most terrifying demon of them all. The demon king.

“You actually killed number three.” The demon king wielded the long black staff in his hands, filled with an overpowering aura that caused even Ning to feel pressure. The demon king strode forward with wide steps, causing the earth to shake. “I want to see exactly how strong you are. All of you, step aside.”

Whoosh. The surrounding demons all gave way.

The demon king suddenly leapt into the air, soaring straight towards Ning with both hands around his staff, delivering a mighty, smashing blow towards Ning’s head.

Clang. The three-headed, six-armed Ning sent all six of his swords into an upwards block.

BOOOOOOM!!

A deep hole appeared in the ground, with Ning having been smashed straight underground.

As for the demon king, he held the long black staff in a single-handed grip as he charged towards that hole with an aura of astonishing power!

Boom! A streak of sword-light flew out from the ground, with Ning ensconced within it.

“What an incredible aura.” Ning’s heart was shaking. This demon king was far too powerful, much stronger than Ning himself. Ning had used all six swords in order to block a single strike from the enemy, and one of the swords had been reinforced by heartforce. But it was useless! He had still been smashed underground. Clearly, the difference in power between them was enormous.

The demon king leapt high into the sky, soaring through the air as he chased after the fleeing Ning. In terms of power or speed, the demon king was definitely superior to Ning.

Boom!

Bang!

Ning was knocked everywhere; high, low, left, right…but thanks to the [Eight-Nine Arcane Art] protecting him, the demon king remained unable to harm Ning. What Ning had to do was to use every tool available to him to ensure that his foe wouldn’t be able to trap or bind him. Ning’s sword-arts were still quite formidable, and thanks to his six arms the lesser demons were unable to even move close to him. This made it so that the demon king didn’t have a chance to use the golden gourd to absorb Ning.

“Being dominated and trampled like this pisses me off. This demon king is way too strong.” Suddenly, Ning’s face changed.

“Attack.”

“Shit!”

Faced with attacks from nine demon commanders and many lesser demons, Feiyou, Zhenbu, and the rest of the nine were trapped in a quagmire. Even Ning, when facing off against two demon commanders and many lesser demons, had been in a dangerous situation. Although the demon king seemed powerful, he was simply very fast and very strong; as long as one was able to withstand his attacks, one would only be knocked flying; there was no risk of dying to him.

During the last calamity, it had been Feiyou who had withstood the demon king’s attacks. In terms of defensive techniques, he was actually far superior to Ning, and so he was able to withstand even the demon king.

During this calamity…the demon king had sought out Ning. Clearly, he didn’t want to deal with the troublesome Empyrean God Feiyou, whose defenses were airtight.

As time passed, the positions of the other nine Empyrean Gods grew increasingly dire. Being at a constant disadvantage would, sooner or later, lead to catastrophe. Based on their past experiences, only after one of the Empyrean Gods died would these demons relax a bit with their attacks.

The ten Empyrean Gods each had their own abilities.

Empyrean God Cloudscar had amazing agility techniques that vastly surpassed the techniques of Ning and the rest of the other nine. Surrounded by an army of demons, he was still like an unpredictable cloud that manifested and dissipated at will. He moved about constantly, continuously launching attacks.

Empyrean God Feiyou’s forte was defense. Not even the demon king was able to do anything to him, and he was naturally in quite a stable position right now as well. However, his attacks were weak. When surrounded and trapped, it was difficult for him to assist the others.

After battling for a long period of time…Empyrean Gods Eastvoid and Zhenbu fell into danger! Although the other Empyrean Gods had helped them out two or three times, there was no way they could be there every time.

“Shit!” Zhenbu let out a furious roar.

“These damned demons.” Eastvoid was growing frantic as well. Both of them specialized in attacking, and so they were in similar, incredibly dire straits right now. Many scars had already appeared on both of their bodies.

“Eastvoid and Zhenbu are almost done for,” Feiyou said through a frantic mental roar as he did his best to charge towards them.

“Feiyou? Don’t even think about going over there.” A demon commander who wielded clanking chains let out a bizarre laugh as he sent his chains lashing outwards, forcibly preventing Feiyou from moving past him.

“Darknorth!” Oddwitch sent out a frantic mental shout as well.

Boom!

The demon king sent out yet another smashing staff blow, knocking Ning aside. Ning grew frantic as well. “There’s no way for me to move close to them.” He was barely able to keep himself safe from the demon king as it was.

Slash! A blade scraped past Eastvoid’s waist. A gaping wound instantly appeared, and fresh blood came spurting out from it. Moments later, a wave of divine power flowed over the wound and quickly healed it.

“My divine power is almost depleted,” Eastvoid sent mentally. Each time his body was injured, a large amount of divine power would be used up to heal it.

“Eastvoid.”

“Brother Eastvoid.”

The other Empyrean Gods were all frantic. Once his divine power was used up…no one would be able to help him.

……

Within the quiet Still Room.

Down below, there was a golden light formation of three hundred meters.

Up above, there was a black light formation of three hundred meters.

Ning was seated in the meditative position between the two. Spheres of Ninefire Lava and Iceheart Pith were floating in front of him, and a large amount of the essence of the two was flowing into the two diagrams. The two spheres had already shrank significantly.

“I’ll have to halt for now.”

Ning willed it, and both great formations slowly vanished into thin air. As for the two spheres of Ninefire Lava and Iceheart Pith, they flew back into their respective jade bottles.

As for Ning, he landed on the ground.

“Although my Pure Yang Jindan still needs upgrading…I have no choice but to halt for now. After the battle, I’ll continue the upgrade process.” Ning took a look inside his body. The gleaming, spinning golden pellet Jindan within his body had an aura that was already tens of times more powerful than it had been previously. The Jindan region inside his body had also dramatically expanded, and a torrent of powerful and pristine Pure Yang energy was flowing through it.

The Icefire Jindan Smelting technique was a process that was extremely slow and extremely gentle. As the Pure Yang Jindan absorbed more and more of the icefire essence, it would constantly improve and evolve. But of course, it could be halted at any time as this was a very gentle, slow type of transformation.

The difference between a Daofather’s Jindan and a True Immortal’s Jindan was like the difference between Heaven and Earth!

A Daofather’s Jindan was on the same level as one of Pangaea’s first-tier True Immortal’s Jindan. If Ning was able to upgrade to a second-tier Jindan, he would be half a step into the Daofather level of power. After having worked on it for more than twenty days, he was actually quite close to completing the upgrade process; it could already be considered a second-tier Jindan. But of course, only after a few more days of refining would it truly reach its maximum potential.

“Let’s take a look and see how powerful this second-tier Jindan is.” Ning willed it, and he instantly vanished from the Immortal estate, appearing within Myriad Mountains Island in the world outside.

……

Myriad Mountains Island.

The battle between the Empyrean Gods and the demons had reached a fevered state. Ning had just been knocked flying away…and suddenly, a second Ning appeared out of nowhere. The sudden appearance of a second Ning caused all of the Empyrean Gods present, as well as the many Empyrean Gods watching from far away, to gawk in amazement.

“Two Empyrean God Darknorths?!”

    1. You’ll probably get it after Ning gets to the fifth island and is allowed to leave.
      Also, who exactly are you asking the lore from? The translator(s) doesn’t(don’t) come up with the story.

      1. Simple. Chinese folklore/the background of the demons in chinese history, mythology etc would be interesting to know, like the raksha. I don’t know if there are variations, or the exact name of the particular/generic demons/demon king. At most I’d only be able to find out a but about the Raksha demon and the other one whose name eludes me.

        Anyway, my point is that they have a basis in something. It’d be interesting to know the types of demons in the footnotes and if the chinese words components could shed some light on them, if you know what I mean. Anyway, sorry for the terrible explanation.

  1. So I’m a little confused right now, the Jidan upgrade is a ki-refiner technique to help improve a 3rd level Jidan to a 2nd level Jidan. If thats the case, it can upgrade a true immortal to a half-step daofather. Is his second body in undermoon lake to a true immortal body? If so, is Jing Ning breaking the rules of only Empyrean gods entering the lake?

    Thanks for the chapter 🙂

    1. He’s both a Ki-Refiner and Empyrean God. The body being Empyrean God allowing him to use divine power(close combat/healing), while his Jindan allows him to utilize energy from Heaven and Earth for other magics(Longe range/his sword formation). I think it’d be a different story if his Primal Twin entered, as it is solely a Ki-Refiner.
      Besides he’s already entered, and the whole Undermoon lake his a trial by fire to get stronger.
      Correct me if I’m wrong.

          1. If i remember correctly it was mentioned in the Mount Innerheart arc that after the Empyrean God stage of Fiendgod Body Refining you can use Divine Power like Qi to use treasures and formations.

          2. Huh, then I must have not paid enough attention in that arc. I only remember the early mentions how some void level viendgod trained in Qi Refining to Zifu level to be able to use treasures. If it changes later on, then it sure is convenient – IET-like, too.

    2. But He IS an empyrean god. Undermoon lake challenges are not truly suited for ki refiners… True Immortals and Empyrean gods are roughly on the same level in the three realms. But it’s not like he would become a daofather upon upgrading his jindan. He will remain a True immortal, but with an aura and power close to the level of a daofather

    3. In this section of the multiverse nothing above third-tier Jindans existed, so True Immortal was an equivalent of an Empyran God, not of a True God like in Pagea Kingdom. That’s why he could enter.

      @Mac – even if the challenges are ‘not suited’ for Qi Refiners, it would make not much sense for an Empyryan God & Daofather to be able to enter as he would just sweep through all of the stages with ease. It was mentioned that Daofathers were unable to enter the Undermoon Lake in the prev chapters. 🙂

        1. Apart from his Primaltwin and its clones which are only Qi refiners, the other 18 are both Fiendgods and Qi Refiners, so yes, 2 copies of Ning’s true body entered the Undermoon Lake.

          1. Sure. It’s mentioned super casually, and as far as it being a different language I believe it was mentioned that the Human language of the Three Realms was very similar so he learned it quickly while he was in the Prisonworld, but I can’t really remember that bit very well.

            “Eh? This jade yaksha speaks in the language of Pangaea?” Ning murmured to himself. However, he showed no mercy at all.

            From B20C7

      1. Yeah, that’s what I said…because daofathers have the power of true gods. But True immortals are only on par with empyrean god, that’s why they are authorized. However, upon upgrading his jindan, he will have the power of a powerful true immortal, a power on the level of true gods. But he won’t have a daofather aura! He will remain a True immortal with an extraordinary aura, so he’s not cheating at all…

  2. Thanks for the chapter! I’m sure Ning’ll get a First-Grade Jindan, the only question is whether it’ll be this book, next book or the one after that, since I highly doubt it’d take more than book 22, and even that’s because the next book might be about the war and Ning might not make that specific breakthrough in the war.

    1. It may happen in thid book, who knows. After all, Undermoon Lake is a mysterious place…Buddha Jueming only spoke about the iceheart leaf in the three realms, he never spoke about the treasures he aquired on the 4th and the 5th Island. It may be understand that iceheart leaf is already a priceless treasure, so I believe the treasures on the 4th and 5th island will either allow him to upgrade his jindan one more time, or will be of equal value with the items he will need.

  3. First off, thanks for the translations. Much appreciated =)
    Now, on to the rants…

    Lots of comments about ki-refiners and jindans here. And yet, no one is asking why Ji Ning didn’t wait a few days in the previous island until his jindan upgrade was completed… <_<
    I mean, it wasn't like he was late for anything (those other e-gods had a few million years or so left in their chaos cycle time limit, so waiting a month would not be a problem). And he knew that this place has stronger guardians appearing in each new island. Any smart person would have waited until upgrade was done before going to next island (author portrays Ji Ning as a 'smart' character, so this goes against his style of being prepared to the max).
    Author made a mistake there.

    Also, if they were supposed to 'go all out' to kill the lesser demons at the start, why didn't Ning use 3heads6arms right at the start?
    Ok, granted, the commanders might have attacked sooner if he did that. But Author should have thought of that and mentioned *that*, instead of repeating the same things over and over to increase word count.

    1. He probably never thought that he would be unable to pick the time of his next fight, he must have assumed it would work just like with the previous ones.

      Secondly, it looks like the demons/empyran gods of Undermoon Lake don’t all know the three heads six arms Divine Technique and he hadn’t shown it to the Purgatory God either, so he was keeping it hidden as a minor surprise trump card for when he would need it – or that would be my guess anyway.

    2. Didnt he get the upgrade materials on the treasure island? if i remember correctly the guardian dude shooed him off the island so i don’t think there have been any mistakes here…

    3. Why is it that the first conclusion that a fool will jump to, is always “the author / MC made a mistake (or is an idiot)”? I’m pretty sure the author knows the story and how the world works better than you do, so if something happens a specific way then it happened for a reason, and just because you don’t understand their choice doesn’t mean the story is automatically wrong.

      1. So, first of all I gotta say that I agree that there’s nothing wrong story wise in this particular scenario.

        That said, the author builds a world to which he sets some rules for the characters living in that world. When a character acts in a way that is inconsistent with the rules of the world he lives in it breaks the world building process unless the author specifies a reason why said rules don’t apply in this circumstance. Note that the explanation can be implied through the reaction of characters to the event eg. “new baddie x does something that has been previously stated to be impossible” depicting surprise or shock in the characters witnessing this can take the place of an explanation of how this is possible as this tells us that either the rule is actually an assumption based on what the characters know to be true at the time or baddie x has some special ability/item that changes how the rules apply to him.

        Case in point of the assumed rule example is the “actually celestial immortals are equal to empyrian gods” development. If Ning had just brushed off the fact that he encountered a celestial immortal that could go head to head with him, a “supreme true immortal and empyrean god” as if it wasn’t out of the ordinary instead of being shocked that would have broken the logic of the story world. In order for a long running story to be good new content must integrate well with old content. The better the whole thing ties together the stronger the immersion into the fictional world. Problem is that authors spend years writing these things, and sometimes they can forget about some random remark they made 2 years ago about how a specific thing in the universe works. In some cases a lot of readers don’t notice it either, but then when someone binge reads the whole story (or someone has a very good memory for details) inconsistencies like this can really break the flow of the story.

        So TL;DR: I feel that your claim that “the author knows the story and how the world works better than you do” is overgeneralising. There are cases where a reader knows the story and how the world works better than the author (especially with long running stories and authors that don’t plan ahead or aren’t mindful of details).

        The other bit of your comment that I am arguing against is “and just because you don’t understand their choice doesn’t mean the story is automatically wrong”. Here I actually agree with the claim since your use of the word “automatically” leaves room for “but it could be”. My problem with this statement is that it is not in any way constructive or called for. The OP was clearly confused and missed some details or failed to make the connection so he raised his doubts to the community to get a clearer picture of the situation. He got some very nice constructive replies from Caladbolg and Nanoninja3330 which most likely answered his questions. Your comment on the other hand is needlessly and somewhat aggressively defending the author of an accusation that was not made, using flawed arguments and without anything useful towards clearing up the confusion…

        Sorry for the wall of text… it kind of got away from me 🙂

        1. If you want to make a point, make it short enough that people won’t skim read / ignore it entirely, or at least make it interesting instead of your current dull rambling.

          The author is IET, the guy’s written a dozen novels before this one and if he didn’t fully know what he was doing before now, he certainly does now. Besides; the entire point of my post is that idiots never first assume they’re wrong, they assume that everyone else is wrong instead, and they piss me off in the process of doing so.

          Anyway – who I choose to insult and why is absolutely none of your god damned business.

          1. Seeing your asinine comments for months, it’s beyond me why you haven’t been moderated into oblivion yet. Regardless of how uninformed the comments are, there’s no reason to insult people, and it ruins my mood. Get off the internet and find some counseling.

          2. Just because you don’t like me, doesn’t make what I’m saying wrong or stupid, and you’re free to cry me a river about it. Exactly why would I be ‘moderated into oblivion’, can you name a single rule I’ve broken? Last I checked, treading carefully because you have very delicate feelings was not a requirement, and I definitely didn’t see any sort of notice that the internet was yours to command as you see fit.

            I will never give a correction I’m not almost completely sure of, and no hypothesis I’m not at least 90% sure of (usually I’ll double check first as well), but I will never ever pull punches when replying to somebody who has just demonstrated that they don’t deserve niceties. If you’re this easy to offend, the internet is not for you.

    4. Ji Ning didn’t have the treasures while on the 2nd island (volcano island with 7 empyrean gods), he got the treasures on the third island (myriad mountains).

      “an enormous, gourd-shaped island appeared before him. This gourd-shaped island looked as though it was a small island and a large island joined together.”

      He didn’t stay in the smaller section with the treasure because he was forced to leave:

      “Shoo, shoo! Off with you!” The Purgatory God stared at Ning. “Are you waiting for me to show you off?”

    5. Author did not make a mistake, Ning had to go to the third island to acquire the icrheart phit in the first place. after he acquired the phit on the small treasure island only then did Ning start the upgrade process, but he was already on the third island where he found out from the other e-gods there that there will be a clamity, it is not that he did not prepare he did not have a chance to do so.

  4. Thanks for the chapter!
    I’m excited to see how strong the upgraded Ning will be. Haha.
    Also, I’m wondering how Ning will eventually deal with those two from the Seamless Gate. It looks like he wouldn’t be willing to kill them or refuse to bring them out… :/

    1. Yeah, it also interest me. Maybe the Daofather Yaun (that’s what he was called?) will get some more screentime later on as he is opposed to the whole conflict. Also, we are yet to learn why Seamless Gate is pushing for this war so hard.

      1. That’s an interesting idea! Would be cool if a neutral camp strong enough to stay out of the conflict or even act as a deterrent formed! Also I’m really hoping we get some more insight into what is forcing this war to happen too.

    2. The other empyrean gods will probably enter his immortal estate to go to the 4th island. He can just keep the empyrean gods of the seamless gate inside it, and only release them after exiting the undermoon lake. That way, he can have these empyrean gods imprisoned by Nuwa Alliance. That way, he won’t have to see them being killed during the endwar…since they became good brothers, that’s one alternative

  5. Wont this be problematic for Ning when they get out, since they all now know he has a true clone and probably more, so he wont be able to keep the secret. And i dont trust that these characters can keep a secret.

    1. It may not be a problem as they might think the Ning that just showed up is the True Ning body and that the one they’ve been talking to is just a normal clone (and not a second true body). After all the Ning just showing up will have a much more powerful jindan making the pre-existing Ning seem like he’s just a weak normal clone by comparison.

    2. even if they know that Ning have more than 1 body, they will think that have 12 real bodies + 1 primaltwin, that’s a technique knows for a few Daofathers. but none will think that he have 18 real bodies + 18 primaltwins ,that is insane.

      -sorry, my write english suck-
