Book 33, Crimsonwave Temple, Chapter 11 – Winesage Arrives

Ji Ning and Ninedust jointly charged towards the black-armored general.

The black-armored general seated on the throne was toying with the Voidsea Jadeseal with one hand, seeming quite relaxed. He put the seal down next to him on the throne, then rose to his feet.

“Aside from Dao-seals and similar treasures, you are permitted to use any secret arts or domain-type effects,” the black-armored warrior said calmly.

“Oh?” Ning and Ninedust were both stunned. Secret arts and heartworld projections were both permissible? In their previous battles, all such techniques had been suppressed! Ning had actually tried to use his heartworld projection and secret arts against the golden-armored warriors and the crimson-armored warriors, but alas the effects had been neutralized.

As for Dao-seals, of course those would always be forbidden. This place was created by the Sithe to train and temper their Daolords; using Dao-seals would completely and truly make the entire exercise pointless.

“Nine novessence arts and heartworld projection, descend!” Ning didn’t hesitate at all in executing these two techniques, causing an awe-inspiring Yin-Yang Sword Domain to descend along with the manifestation of his heartworld projection. Both came crashing straight down against the black-armored general.

The black-armored general gripped the warblade by his side. “Your heartworld projection and your secret arts aren’t bad.” The black-armored general suddenly manifested a total of three layers of black light over his body. The black light completely covered and protected him from the might of the nine novessence arts and the heartworld projection. “Unfortunately, they aren’t quite enough to do anything to me.” He instantly drew his warblade.

Whoosh! A streak of dazzling black saber-light instantly sliced across the skies and chopped towards Ning. It was simply too fast; as soon as the saber was drawn, the saber-light had reached Ning! When Ning saw that terrifying saber-light appear before him, he felt his heart tremble.

“He’s at the level of the eight lords of the Sacred Cities.” When Ning saw the saber-light, he instantly understood how strong the black-armored general was. The streak of saber-light vastly surpassed a hundred times the speed of light, and in power it was just as strong as a strike from Winesage. It completely surpassed the level which supreme Daolords were capable of reaching.

Swish! Ning suddenly vanished without a trace. Slash! The saber-light sliced through the position Ning had previously been in, carving a deep gouge within the field of sword-intent generated by the Yin-Yang Sword domain. Moments later, the gouge quickly disappeared but Ning was nowhere to be found.

Of Ning’s five Omega Sword Dao stances, two were defensive while the other three (Heavenbreaker, Shadowless, Blood Drop) had various special effects.

The Shadowless stance allowed him to turn completely invisible and evade even godsense.

The Blood Drop stance, when used with the Northbow swords, was Ning’s most powerful attack.

Although his heartworld projection and the nine novessence arts were unable to harm his opponent, they at least rendered him unable to defeat Ning’s Shadowless stance.

“Eh? Where’s he hiding?” The black-armored general frowned as he immediately swept out with his warblade, launching an omnidirectional attack.

“Hahaha! You won’t be able to find him.” Ninedust laughed loudly as he transformed into an awesome wave that furiously surged out towards the black-armored general and coiled around him.

The black-armored general’s saber-light was impeded by Ninedust’s waves and also slowed down by Ning’s heartworld and the nine novessence arts. With Ning already knowing where the saber-light would land, he was naturally able to avoid it with ease.

Slash! A mist-formed sword suddenly struck out from nowhere and stabbed against the outermost layer of black light covering the black-armored general. Slash! All three layers were pierced through, but the speed of the sword was lessened as well.

When Ning struck, his strike would appear in front of you instantaneously!

“Eh?” The black-armored general’s face tightened as he immediately struck out with his own warblade to block Ning’s strike. His defensive saber-arts were quite flawless, allowing him to block Ning’s strike almost instantly.

Slash! Slash! Slash! Slash! Slash!

As the black-armored general’s warblade clashed against Ning’s Northbow sword, the other five Northbow swords suddenly appeared as well, having transformed into five streaks of sword-shaped fog that stabbed straight through the three layers of black light.

“What?!” Because his warblade had just clashed against Ning’s first Northbow sword, the black-armored general’s reaction speed was just a little too slow… and Ning’s other five Northbow swords were just too fast.

Whoosh! The black-armored general’s warblade sliced out a beautiful arc in the air. As the defender he always held a certain advantage, because he only had to defend a fairly small area, allowing him to deflect many attacks from the enemy with ease. However… his warblade had been weakened and slowed down by its impact against Ning’s Northbow sword! This had an impact on his defensive stance.

Slash! One of the streaks of sword-shaped fog stabbed straight into the black-armored general’s runic core.

“What?” The black-armored general was stunned. He just stood there blankly. “I lost? I lost that fast?” He had lost so quickly that he couldn’t even believe it.

“B-but…” The six golden-armored warriors and the three crimson-armored warriors who had retreated early on all stared dumbly. The black-armored general was on par with the eight lords of the Sacred Cities! But of course, he had certain flaws compared to the actual lords… with the main flaw being that he only had a single weapon! Most true Emperors would manifest at least six arms to fight against foes, whereas the black-armored general would only use a single warblade against his foes as this was what had been designated by the Sithe.

The difference in power was too great, after all. Generally speaking, supreme Daolords would be crushed by the black-armored general. Many ‘ordinary’ supreme Daolords found it impossible to even penetrate the three layers of black light!

The Shadowless stance made it impossible to predict where the attack would come from. As soon as Ning attacked, his swords would have already gone through the three layers of black light, making it difficult for the general to defend.

The worst part was, Ning’s sword was incredibly fast. All six of them were incredibly fast, and they were also extremely unpredictable! Given that the black-armored general only had a single warblade to deal with the six Northbow swords, and given that the Shadowless stance allowed Ning to close in on him unhindered… alas, he was defeated at the first go.

“I can send you flying with a single blow from my saber.” The black-armored general shook his head in disbelief.

“But your saber-light wasn’t able to touch me, not even once.” Ning shook his head as well. In the end, the black-armored general wasn’t a true Eternal Emperor; he didn’t even have domain-type secret arts. Winedust, for example, was able to use both a heartworld projection and secret arts to prevent Ning from moving too close to him via the Shadowless stance; if Ning attempted to do so, he would be exposed by the domain.

“I’m able to silently approach you without giving you any hint as to where I am! Given how fast my six Northbow swords are… if I’m still unable to touch your runic core despite all these advantages then that would mean I’m ridiculously weaker than the eight lords of the Sacred Cities.” Ning was in quite a good mood, both at how strong he had become as well as at his final success.

“The Voidsea Jadeseal…” Ninedust stared at the jade seal atop the throne, his eyes gleaming with excitement. This was a legendary treasure, the most powerful Daomerge treasure available. It had drawn the attention of virtually all of the supreme Daolords of the Endless Territories. Today, it would become his?

“What are you looking at? Go take it!” Ning barked.

“T-then I’ll really go grab it…?” Ninedust felt rather embarrassed, as Ning was primarily responsible for their success. But in truth, he had played a major role as well. His invulnerable aquaform was very tough for foes to deal with, and the way in which he had transformed into waves that hindered their foes made things much easier for Ning. Otherwise, Ning by himself would’ve taken forever to overcome even the first world.

“We agreed early on that it’d be yours. Stop wasting time! If you delay any longer, I’m gonna fight you for it,” Ning said.

Swoosh! Seemingly panicked, Ninedust reached out with his right hand, moving lightning-fast as he grabbed the jade seal atop the throne.

“Ninedust, you…” Ning stared at him. “Was it really necessary to grab it that fast? You moved more than a hundred times the speed of light!”

“Yeah, just keep laughing. I really don’t care right now. Ahaha!” Ninedust was in quite a good mood. Even if Ning was to stab him with a hundred knives, he’d still continue to chortle.

Ning smiled as well. He had felt quite guilty towards Ninedust this entire time, but now he felt much better.

Whoosh. A streak of light appeared off in the distance, then flew straight towards them. It was Winesage.

“Fellow Daoists.” A sonorous voice boomed out, echoing throughout every inch of the Crimsonwave Temple. “The second of the three final Voidsea Jadeseals has been acquired by Daolord Ninedust!”

Winesage trembled slightly, looking almost like a bloodlusted mortal who suddenly had a bucket of icewater poured over him. He landed on the ground, staring dazedly at Ning and Ninedust and the throne next to them.

“You…” Winesage couldn’t believe it. This was simply too fast! He had just acquired his a short while. Somehow, Ning and Ninedust had successfully acquired one as well?

“Haha, it’s on me. Come and take it, if you can.” Ninedust was quite smug. Given his invulnerable aquaform, he really didn’t fear any Daolords at all.

Ning stood by Ninedust’s side, a smile on his face as he looked at Winesage. “Winesage. You arrived too late.”

    1. Winedust, for example, was able to use both a heartworld projection and secret arts to prevent Ning

      it should be WINESAGE …unless ninedust and winesage had a FUSION xD

  1. “A warrior doesn’t forsake faith.”

    “A warrior doesn’t persecute the weak.”

    “A warrior doesn’t attack unarmed people.”

    “A warrior doesn’t yield to injustice.”

    “A warrior doesn’t shame the gods.”

    “A warrior pays back any favors or vengeance.”

    “A warrior protects the powerless.”

    “I swear to the gods, I will abide by these laws as a warrior.”

  2. Guess that Ning’s attack would be comparable to universe treasure once he breakthrough to the next Heartsword level…

    Now, Lv. 15 Heartsword + Verge level Daolord Darknorth = Hegemon lv. power? Added that he would likely have six universe treasure, he doesn’t really need to be Hegemon to be an Otherverse Lord

    1. Honestly! Just imagine if he gets winesage universe treasure…like if he gets to fourth stage doalord and master lv15 heartsword, he’ll be hegemon level and then challenge winesage and beat him, the universe might switch master cuz he was with the “strongest” doalord and it being the ultimate treasure and still lost, why not follow darknorth that isn’t even a chaos circle old and already hegemon power level…then his six sword gets to universe treasure level cuz of some lucky encounter and then he becomes an eternal emperor….just imagine howww OP he will be…

      1. Do you think becoming a verge level Daolord is a walk in the park? It takes some chaos cycles of training to reach verge level and you want Ning to reach that level after 20 years of being a 3rd level Daolord. And Ning doesn’t need some gloves his Northbows will propbably become universe treasures. Imagine 6 universe treasures

        1. I know it will take chaos cycle to reach verge but if he gets the jade seal, he could simulate his future path and make it faster for him. Like when he gives this one to ninedust, and gets the other one, he won’t be able to hold it, so he will have to use it, ninedust can last for a few seconds while everyone attacking him and ji Ning can use it to learn to level 15 of heartsword and perk third step, and break through by fighting winesage for the position of number one or get insight during the fight cuz with level 15 of the heartsword he can beat winesage…that’s my THEORY anyways…and he doesn’t need the gloves but just imagine the gloves and 6 universe swords…I’m just seeing the possibilities of a more op ji ning lol

  3. Thanks for the chapters. I originally assumed that Winesage had experienced successive breakthroughs just like Ji Ning, since he was stopped by the 3 warriors for 6 years but then broke through and also beat the 1 warrior, but from the way Winesage’s battles were characterized, maybe not. Looking forward to seeing how strong Ji Ning is after this arc is over.

      1. Not necessarily. The way solesky talked about his jade talisman use is that the faux daomerge grants certain insights into your dao. Winesage might be able to use the dao seal and grow more after having a pseudo daomerge like solesky.

        1. Well, Winesage won’t use the seal unless he has no chance to get another one because everything else would be a waste. He has to use them together to get a full pseudo daomerge. If he just uses one now, he has to start from the beginning with another one later since the seal makes a exact copy of you and you can simulate the merge with it, but if the energy of one seal is used up, you can’t “save” the state you reached for the next one. That said, since Winesage has his universe treasure, he probably wasn’t under enough preasure to really make any noticeable progress.

  4. Wow when do the person with the seal become carefree and have time to go grab others too. I thought he’s gonna get gangbang by all others? Since Dawnstar side have 5 Daolords and only one seal…why did they let Winesage leave? Lol really confusing. Either way, they’re gonna risk their lives and since Winesage come by himself why not grab his seal?….. I dont understand this part here.

    1. “why did they let Winesage leave?”
      Let? How are they supposed to stop him at all, never mind without getting killed in the process?

      It’s only with the 5 of them that they were able to prevent him from also beating the 3 crimson warriors.

  5. Unfortunately a don’t know you very well to say something to cheer you up but I’ll try.
    Thank you very much for the efforts to translate the chapter and keep this site working.
    If you need to, what about take a break, 2 or 3 weeks, I belive that the website won’t blow up (I hope so), and mostly of your readers would understand. go travel, have fun i don’t know, to a beach or any place you like, you can come to Brazil, I would very gladly receive you at my place (well I don’t live in Rio de Janeiro or in other fancy city, but still), don’t take your pc and don’t acess anything related to web novels, I belive it would help your mental state, but again I don’t really know you

  6. Winedust, for example, was able to use both a heartworld projection and secret arts to prevent Ning from moving too close to him via the Shadowless stance; if Ning attempted to do so, he would be exposed by the domain.
