Chapter 944 – Yang Yun’s Death

Lin Ming’s sharp words stabbed Yang Yun again and again, every new word more excruciating than the last. It was pain that pierced into his marrow!

When Lin Ming said that Yang Yun had fused with the Ancient Devil’s soul and lost himself, that was the same as saying that Yang Yun had died. It was the same as saying that Yang Yun’s body was actually being occupied by someone else!

Hearing these words, how could Yang Yun not become crazy. His eyes were blood red as he roared, “Shut up! I am me! I am Yang Yun! Lin Ming, stop trying to use your words to shake my spirit! You’re wasting your time!”

“Haha, are you feeling guilty? Are you feeling afraid? If you really believe your words, then why would you feel this? No matter what I say, the real Yang Yun would’ve remained serene without any change in his composure. But as for you, you’ve already fallen into a violent rage and turned crazy. This is because you’re no longer Yang Yun!”

“In today’s battle I already discovered that your personality has completely changed. You’ve become demented, easy to anger, hysterical at all things. The Yang Yun in my mind reveals neither happiness nor anger and his mind is unfathomable, not allowing anyone to guess what’s on his mind. You’re not Yang Yun, but the result of the fusion of Yang Yun and the Ancient Devil. The real Yang Yun has already died, don’t you know that? He died the moment that he chose to fuse with the Ancient devil! As for you, who is standing in front of me, you are nothing more than a soul fused monster!”

“Shut up shut up shut up shut up! I’ll kill you!”

Yang Yun’s eyes burned with a psychotic light. He vomited another mouthful of blood essence. In the skies, blood rained down, forming an endless waterfall of blood.

A martial artist had a limited amount of blood essence. If an ordinary martial artist were to attempt what Yang Yun was doing, they would’ve already turned into a desiccated corpse. The only reason that Yang Yun hadn’t died was because of the Great Blood Refining Art.

Facing this even more terrifying slaughter demon blood rain, Lin Ming actually loudly laughed, “Yang Yun, fusing with the Ancient Devil was your life’s greatest mistake. The current you has lost all wisdom and reasoning; you’re nothing more than a mad devil now. Your ambitions were too great, and your desires were too great. You were finally controlled by those ambitions and desires and killed yourself!”

“In the future, your demonic heart will become infinite. You’ll lose your mind, lose your personality, lose yourself and become a rabid beast!”

The real Yang Yun was able to tolerate all humiliation, keeping his thoughts immeasurable deep. He had great courage, greater determination, and was an outstanding hero of his era. If there wasn’t a problem, his future achievements would’ve surpassed the Eightfall Thunder Emperor and the Sorcerer of the Southern Wilderness; he would’ve become someone equal to the Demon Emperor or even Emperor Shakya!

But what a pity. His ambitions and his desires were too great and he was devoured by them instead!

A single wrong move and the entire game ruined!

If a martial artist’s heart demon could kill them, then their desires and ambitions could also do the same!

Yang Yun roared. He was like a demon. Then, without warning, he slammed down his jaws and bit off his tongue. He slammed his chest until his ribs shattered, forcing more blood essence onto the blood sword. The blood sword in Yang Yun’s hand began to excitedly whistle, as if it were a demon that was unsealed after 100,000 years!

Yang Yun had really gone mad, without regards to the consequences; this mouthful of blood essence cost him 800-900 years of his life.

At this point, Yang Yun didn’t even have a thousand years remaining. Although his fires of life were extremely vibrant, that was traded at the price of combusting his blood essence. Once his blood essence was burnt through, he would enter into the twilight of his life, all of his potential completely consumed!

Yang Yun’s lips and teeth were stained with blood and his hair was split apart. He looked like a demon that had crawled out from the blood abyss. He miserably chuckled, his laughter like the shrill and ugly cries of a banshee.

“Lin Ming, you have the life of an Emperor, so how would you know my pain? My heart is higher than the heavens and yet my life is more worthless than a sheet of paper! I was born a bastard, my mother nothing more than a mortal. She died a tragic death in the harem and her corpse was buried under some random hill! During my childhood my life was worth less than a dog. I had no talent, no resources, and even through the harem that was filled with factional strife and deceit, I still managed to survive!”

“When I was 12 years old, I encountered the only lucky chance of my life, and that was the Ancient Devil. However, he was only using me. He trained me, built me up just so that I could be a chess piece to him. He even planted a spell within my body! If I wasn’t able to find a suitable vessel for him to possess, then my body would be seized instead! I endured the humiliation and pain, bearing it all in my heart. In order to train in the devil arts I suffered unimaginable pain. I consumed my blood essence and my life to advance. In order to cross the trial of passion I killed the woman I loved most in the world. In order to rid myself of heart demons I cut off all my emotions!”

“I’ve paid such a great price and endured so much, all in order to take back from the heavens what I have lost! I have to become the best! I must become the greatest! I must become the king of kings! Otherwise, I’m unwilling!”

“You said I made life’s greatest mistake by swallowing that Ancient Devil, but if I didn’t do that I would’ve been the one to die. I would’ve been the one to die, don’t you know that!? If I didn’t swallow the Ancient Devil, I wouldn’t have been able to obtain its memories. If I didn’t obtain its memories, then what capital would I have to ascend to the Divine Realm and become king of everything?”

“Ahhhhh! I hate everything! I hate that the heavens are unfair! I hate that destiny mocks me! Why, why? I have sacrificed so much and yet I am still inferior to you! Why!?”

“I must kill you! I must take your secrets! That is the only chance I have left, because there’s no other road left for me to go! Great Blood Refining Art – 3000 Sword Genocide!”

Yang Yun had gone crazy. In the blink of an eye he stabbed out his sword 3000 times!

Blood essence combusted. Yang Yun’s body could no longer withstand the massive amount of energy. His wounds couldn’t be suppressed anymore. It erupted, causing his meridians to break as his body began to burst open!

“My fire of life, don’t give up, bloom with your most dazzling brilliance!”

Yang Yun’s entire body was bathed in blood. He became a blood dao diagram, taking those 3000 sword lights and shooting towards Lin Ming!

Lin Ming grasped the Great Desolate Blood Halberd, burning the blood of the Ancient Phoenix to the limit, revolving the heretical God Force to the extreme, and completely unleashing the power of the Eight Inner Hidden Gates.

“In this world, fairness does not exist to begin with. In the Divine Realm there are geniuses that are birthed with countless resources surrounding them. They have divine bodies and bloodlines inherited from their parents, and they even have World King level powerhouses as their masters. They have the best cultivation methods to practice and the most outstanding proud daughters of heaven to dual cultivate with. How do you think anyone in this world can possibly compare!?”

“My lucky chance, the Divine Crystal Magic Cube, has only given me some memories and martial arts cultivation methods. Besides a single transcendent divine might, all other cultivation methods that I gained from it aren’t necessarily any worse than those that could be provided by the Ancient Devil! While I haven’t experienced the plotting and deceit of the royal family’s harem, I also experienced a heartbreaking and dismal youth.”

“Betrayal of the one I loved, indifference of my clansmen. I had no resources and had to endure internal injuries, betting everything I had on my choice. After you were born you had the support of the Nine Furnace Divine Kingdom. I did not. After you showed your talent, you had unlimited resources at your disposal. I had to struggle for everything I had myself. You’re a central decision maker of the Sky Spill Continent’s greatest power, but I was only able to take my first step at a mortal martial house that is subordinate to a tiny third-grade sect.”

“The road of martial arts is to defy the will of the heavens to begin with! You blame the heavens for being unfair, then you might as well blame the world for not being flat. You place all the blame on your own destiny, and all you can think of is stealing the secrets of others for yourself. Your mind is dominated by your ambitions and your greed! You didn’t hesitate to sacrifice your very identity, even resorting to any sinister and cruel method that could help you achieve your goals. Because of this, you have doomed yourself to defeat and to death!”

“Yang Yun, the true you has already died. When I kill you, what I’m killing is the monster formed from the unification of the real Yang Yun and the Ancient Devil!”

Lin Ming’s words were all sent within one tenth of an eye blink, directly transmitting into Yang Yun’s mind with a true essence sound transmission. He didn’t even conceal knowledge of the Divine Crystal Magic Cube in his body.

This was a life or death battle to begin with; there naturally wasn’t any way for his secret to be revealed.

“Blood of the Ancient Phoenix, condense!”

With a keen phoenix cry, the blood of the Ancient Phoenix combusted and formed a golden phoenix phantom that rushed out from Lin Ming’s back. The phoenix phantom soared into the air, forming a massive flaming fire dao diagram. This dao diagram was 200 feet wide and contained countless twisting fire patterns; these were actually the mystical traces from the chaos stones in Timeworn Phoenix City!

“Purple Lion Thunder source, condense!”


The Purple Lion Thunder source blitzed out from the Heretical God Sprout, howling again and again. It’s voice was like an endless thunderclap that echoed between the heavens and earth. The Purple Lion Thunder Source also turned into a thunder dao diagram. This thunder dao diagram was 300 feet wide, larger than the fire dao diagram. Innumerable thunder tracings winded on the surface of the thunder dao diagram like little electric snakes. The tracings were similar to those that were on the 12 thunder dao fruits. They represented the operating rules of the Thunder Laws.

The Ancient Phoenix phantom condensed into fire!

The Purple Lion Thunder Source condensed into thunder!

This was Lin Ming’s strongest technique, an attack which magnificence and power eclipsed Penetrating Rainbow.

Thunderfire Dao Diagram!

The halberd thrust out like the harbinger of the apocalypse. The entire world was covered by the two red and purple dao diagrams. The two dao diagrams sandwiched the world like two grinding plates, seeming as if it would grind away the world!

This was a strength that approached the Source Laws of the Great Dao. It was simply not a strength that the martial artists of the Sky Spill Continent could comprehend.

3000 sword lights all pierced the Thunderfire Dao Diagram!

Peng peng peng peng peng!

A series of ringing explosions filled the air as legions of sword lights shattered. The two great dao diagrams violently trembled. Countless thunder and fire tracings were broken by the sword lights, turning into a potent and savage energy that broke into the void!

In order to display the thunder and fire dao diagrams, Lin Ming’s consumption was also monstrous!

His cultivation was only at the fifth stage of Life Destruction. Even with the Eight Inner Hidden Gates, complete spirit body, and extremely deep reserves of energy to support him, he was still close to reaching his limit!


Lin Ming’s waved the blood halberd. The great dao diagrams began gathering together, squeezing Yang Yun within!

Over half of Yang Yun’s sword lights had shattered. With a low howl, blood spurted out from all over his body yet again. Behind him, the blood dao diagram reappeared and began to slowly spin around. Within the blink of an eye, Yang Yun thrust out his sword another 3000 times!

3000 sword strikes followed by another 3000 sword strikes, Yang Yun’s mortal body had already begun to collapse. His blood vessels were torn apart and he vomited mouthfuls of blood!

“You stubborn fool!”

Lin Ming’s muscles bulged out and veins stuck out from all over him like blue worms. He bit down on the tip of his tongue, spitting out a layer of blood essence. The Great Desolate Blood Halberd chopped downwards. Within the air, the thunder and fire dao diagrams finally combined together and violently exploded!

In that instant, all color vanished from the world. A raging energy swallowed up this part of the sky, cutting itself off from the world. It was like the moon collapsed and stars were sinking.

This terrifying energy completely fell onto Yang Yun. The blood sword shattered. Yang Yun’s broken body was sucked into the brutal and vicious storm. His protective true essence was torn apart like paper, his meridians crushed, and his body completely burst apart.

    1. “My lucky chance, the Divine Crystal Magic Cube, has only given me some memories and martial arts cultivation methods. Besides a single transcendent divine might, all other cultivation methods that I gained from it aren’t necessarily any worse than those that could be provided by the Ancient Devil! ”

      Only a single transcendent divine might, are you high? You make transcendent divine mights sound like cabbage you can buy at the grocery store.

      And just one or two chapters ago you were trash talking the ‘second grade’ cultivation methods that Yang Yun got from the Ancient Devil but now you are trying to say that they aren’t much worse than yours?

      And what do you mean the magic cube has only given you some memories and martial arts cultivation techniques? Literally EVERYTHING you have is due to the magic cube and you’re trying to deny that? Even the martial arts techniques you created are based off of the memories and techniques you got from the magic cube. All of those lucky chances you earned wouldn’t have been possible without the magic cube. The only thing you earned yourself that isn’t the magic cube is your battle spirit and everything else would be impossible without the magic cube.

      I’ve never disliked Lin Ming in this series but that one paragraph of text has made me start to hate him because he’s lying to himself and being a hypocrite.

      1. he gained a lot from the cube, but the memories would be useless without the effort he put in or the dangers he went through to get the resources. as was stated back around chapter 100 when he first got the array master memories, without practice and work to make them his own he couldn’t make anything and without throwing himself into the wind tunnel day after day laws made no sense.

        it’s like having a tape recorder explaining quantum theory in the hands of an 8-year-old if they don’t then try to understand it on their own it is a pointless exercise. if that kid grew up to becomes a scientist can you say it’s all because they had the tape recorder and the kid deserves no credit?

        1. It’s a bit more than your analogy implies. He’s getting all of the memories along with their experience and cultivation methods. Obviously Lin Ming had to work hard but the cube did a lot of it. It would be like going to the stone age and then having the knowledge of blacksmiths and engineers placed in your mind. How much of your success is because of the steel plate armor and sword you’re using? Your rivals have clubs and rocks or are animals. Yes, it would probably be a pain making the stuff in the first place but after you do you’re pretty much king while you’re wearing it unless you run into an rhino or something.

      2. I also didn’t like his whining about his childhood. “Oh no, one bad thing happened to me in my childhood so it’s just as bad as yours.” Shut up. Also your clan wasn’t indifferent. They were just a bit distant. You had a roof over your head, and food in your stomach because your parents were running a family restaurant. That they didn’t buy you expensive medicine for cultivating when you showed no talent doesn’t make them indifferent. As soon as you showed some talent they had your back 100%.

      3. I honestly believe he didn’t mean it like that. I believe he was trying to say that just like Lin Ming he had gotten a lucky chance to help him thrive but instead didn’t use it well. That paragraph also bugged me quite a bit.

      4. Yeah and all the dangers that lin ming faced while cultivated were doing with his own approval that is, he was aware of dangers. AS for yang yun he may not know what he is getting himself into when he run into ancient devil and after that devil placed a spell on yang yun he was pretty much done for and he could only do what he was told to.

        So in short words yang yun had much more of a screwed up life and that he had to make sacrifices he didn’t want to make, and he wasn’t even sure if he will survive all of those trials that he unwillingly had to take.

      5. Are you high? Ming’er obviously relied on himself to be where he is now. The capital was the cube, but in the first few chapters, didn’t he just get a cultivation technique? But so what if he had that cultivation technique? He suffered for it. He suffered hardships and pain to be where he is now. You think developing a Martial intent was because of the Cube? You think having a resolution to walk the path of Martial Arts is because of the cube? I bet if it were you , you would’ve chosen the biggest soul because of greed.

      6. Although I see where you’re coming from, you’re being overly harsh to LM, as if having the cube = automatic win for LM.

        LM simplified it a bit much, but he was in the MIDDLE of a heated battle, sending his thoughts within a fraction of a second in order to retort the whiny mess that came from Yang Yun’s mouth. Did you expect a well thought out thesis from him?

        Yang Yun’s encounter with the Ancient Devil = YY’s luck
        Lin Ming’s encounter with the cube = LM’s luck

        Yang Yun had a perfect guide to give him the best path to expert-dom.
        LM had zero guide, risking his life again and again, hoping for the best at each turn. Even if he survives the soul fragments, he still had to figure out how to make the info work for him.

        LM’s retort to YY is that he had near zero resources, zero cultivation methods early on. At least Yang Yun had both, more and better on both counts. Regardless how ‘little’ he said he had, he’s still a minor prince of a kingdom. Can we seriously believe that YY had less means in cultivation than the retarded medicines LM had to risk his own body to use in cultivation, while scraping for every penny?

        Yang Yun met the Ancient Devil at 12 yo, Ning at 16yo I think? That’s a 4 years head start in the best years of cultivation with one of the greatest kingdoms’ resources to support him. From 12 yo, YY had all the support of said kingdom. All he had to do was spread out his hands to accept. And LM? From early on until recently? Nope. He only recently had that kind of resources, but all traded with risking his life again and again and again. Nope, they are not nearly the same.

        Oh yea, there’s also this minor detail where LM has to risk his life EACH and every time he attempts to get more ‘memories’ from soul fragments, not knowing what he’d get. If LM chose the wrong and too strong soul? Tough luck, die! To enter the cube? Better hope the people LM get the blood essences from don’t turn him into fertilizer. As for Yang Yun? All he had to deal with was the ‘possibility’ of being in danger of possession if he couldn’t get a body for the Ancient Devil. Who’s fault would it have been if he couldn’t find one?

        Their situations are not close to being the same. Somehow you think LM has it easier? Nope.

      7. If I was a penniless wretch in the wilderness on a backward cultivating planet, and a cultivation manual dropped into my lap from a divine powerhouse. And then I use that to start to cultivate, which results in me becoming stronger and stronger, and through daring and audacity, I discover more secret techniques, steal good weapons from the corpses of my foes, or books on heavenly dao. Would you say I have everything because of that cultivation method?

        Sure you could. However we live in a world where you can google any knowledge in the world, if you’re in america you don’t need to fear starvation (mostly) or floods (mostly), you’ll be supported by your great wealth to persuit pretty much anything you want to. Yet how many people are out of shape, overweight, never graduate from college or are so ignorant of basic knowledge they would have shamed an illiterate 19th century coal miner?

        Just because a book of divine techniques drop into your lap doesn’t mean you have the desire, intelligence or luck to turn it into something good for yourself. So to fault the mc for taking pride in all the hardship and hard work he put in to become what he’s become seems a bit misguided.

  1. Yang Yun is one of the few Xianxia villains I didn’t really hate… or at least didn’t think was trash (most villains in Chinese fantasy are so generic and cookie cutter, I can’t hate them anymore)….

    Thanks for the chapter XD

  2. How you kill a villain:

    Step 1: Know his secret
    Step 2: Ambush him in his cultivation
    Step 3: Confront him with vicious words
    Step 4: Berrate him and hit his soft spot with your words
    Step 5: Profit

    1. Ah, you forgot 4.5. Tell him your own secret so that he can pass it on at the last minute, eventually giving rise to a new enemy targeting your secret.

      I’m still a bit in disbelief that he did that /sigh

      1. Me too. That’s like villain 101. When you are about to kill someone always tell them your most damaging secrets so that if you fail you are F*cked!!

  3. “The road of martial arts is to defy the will of the heavens to begin with! You blame the heavens for being unfair, then you might as well blame the world for not being flat.”

    Lin Ming…/r/flatearthsociety/ would like to have a word with you.

  4. So, 2 thinks I didn’t like

    1) everything MC got is from the cube… literally everything…I think the cube also increases one’s soul power when he absorbs others souls and increases his talent for comprehension(martial intents) and will power(battle spirit)

    2) even if Yang yun is gonna die…why shit talk so much…. he’s a dead man anyway…and dead men tell no tales~….if he escapes magic cube will be exposed..etc etc…#stfu&JustKill!

  5. You know what bothers me a good deal? How blood essence is presented as being super important, but everybody including the MC burns it willy-nilly.

    “Yang Yun’s eyes burned with a psychotic light. He vomited another mouthful of blood essence. In the skies, blood rained down, forming an endless waterfall of blood.

    A martial artist had a limited amount of blood essence.”

    Oh really, it doesn’t seem like it is limited. Burning your life/life force/blood essence has to be one of the tropes I hate the most, it just feels like lazy writing to me.

    Also others already complained, but
    1. Never tell others your super big life destroying secret.. idiot.
    2. And MC would literally be bullied to death back in the sky fortune kingdom if he didn’t get the magic cube. He found the cube in ch. 2, with a pathetic level of cultivation, he was building up internal injuries, had no money, no talent, next to no support, a network of people working under his enemies. How would the story go without the knowledge, experience, and understanding given to him? He would be dead. Martial World Fin. Roll Credits… idiot.
    3. Hopefully the magic cube protects and nurtures him so that it can assimilate him, then he would actually know what that feels like, but it will probably just turn into another girlfriend for him.

    1. I believe MC burns his essence because he has the ancient phoenix bloodline which can regenerate all his power and blood essence since it is like ancient samsara, and rebirth, so in other words MC can regain his essence from burning his ancient pheonix blood essence which is special as it is infinite, however the enemy is insane and is simply putting everything on the line to beat lin ming. So I really don’t see why it bothers you here since although it is important, they have reasons behind it. But well just my opinion I guess 😀 I respect your opinion.

      1. Nahh m8, he burnt his OWN blood essence few times already. Idk if he forgets it or the author forgets it, but it somehow becomes irrelevant and the story just goes on like nothing happened. EACH TIME he burns it, author’s like “The blood essence is really important and it’d make future cultivation hard” bla bla bullshit and proceeds to the story, omitting the burnt blood essence.

  6. Why is everyone complaining so much about LM? He is not wrong and also, on the long term the Magic Cube might trully be the greatest lucky chance ever, but in the short/mid term is quite not that much compaired to be the crown prince of the strongest sect in this world.

    LM was hunted like a rat by Asura Divine Kingdom, had to face countless life and death situations…Yang Yun after having increased his level he got everything he could. Also life is not about competing who is more screwed up than others. Yang yun was like a kid complaining about everything, when the path of martial arts in the novel is about defying the heavens.

    Yang Yun could have killed LM but he choose to let the ancient devil try to possess the body of MC. Also why didn’t he try to team up with LM to get rid of the ancient devil?

    And like someone already said…LM had the magic cube and etc, but so what? Give a 8 years old kid a book about advanced math and expect him to become like an Einstein is crazy, without effort nothing is possible. Think people is overreacting too much this last chapter about LM and Yang Yun

  7. First time commenting. I had to though because it seems people tend to forget the things lin Ming went through. Every now and then he meets an enemy that he has to be hiding from and has to overcome obstacles to become stronger and defeat. Now Yang yun is b*tching about hardships when he had a divine kingdom supporting. So what if your father didnt love you, everyone has their own problem. If you want success stop blaming others for being better than you.
