Chapter 978 – Overpower

The first level of the Fire Laws was Burning Heat; that was the foundation of all Fire Laws and also the most basic attribute of fire.

The second Concept was Annihilation; that was the manifestation of fire’s strength. The ability to destroy all and to burn away all of existence!

However, when things reached the extreme, they would return to the opposite. Once annihilation reached the extreme, it would actually become creation!

From flames flaring from nothing, that was creation.

From flames starting out weak and becoming a raging inferno, that was creation.

When a spark touched upon the grasslands and set the entire world ablaze, that was also creation.

When fields of rice grew from the ruins made by flames, producing a greater, more abundant harvest, that was similarly creation.

A star itself was a massive burning fireball. Underneath the shining light of the sun, all lives thrived; that was creation.

Even in human history, because fire saved men from ignorance, mankind finally became prosperous and gave birth to a glorious martial arts civilization.

Fire could destroy all life but it could also breed all life. When a wildfire blew through a forest, it gave birth to new growth in spring. After annihilation there was creation!

Hua Yanguang’s comprehension of Fire Laws already reached the third level. After crossing the ninth stage of Life Destruction and withstanding the baptism of the Heavenly Dao, his understanding of Fire Laws had increased even further; he even managed to form the Blue Lotus Domain. The Blue Lotus Domain was a phenomenon that would occur when one’s understanding of the third level Fire Laws reached the peak. Moreover, not everyone was able to do this.

Within the Blue Lotus, all life was created. It rapidly grew from several hundred feet to 10 miles in size, enveloping Lin Ming within.

“Haha, once you’ve entered my Blue Lotus Domain, you’ll definitely lose. Do you know what a domain is? In this domain, I control everything. The Blue Lotus Domain is a true phenomenon! Only a martial artist that has the life of an Emperor can accomplish this after practicing the Fire Laws to the extreme of the third level. This sort of person is beyond rare, but I am actually someone capable of doing so! I am destined to become a new king of the Divine Realm!” Huo Yanguang wildly laughed. Before crossing the ninth stage of Life Destruction his Blue Lotus Truefire was still unable to form a domain. His uncle speculated that he would be able to do so after reaching Ninefall, and his predictions came true!

“Go die! Blue Lotus Truefire, black flames, combine!”

Huo Yanguang slashed out his sword. As the Blue Lotus Truefire burst outward, he also poured in the black flames from the Blackfire Blade!

The billowing black flames were filled with a thick demonic energy. As the flames swept out, it seemed as if countless pained souls were being burnt within the flames, filling them with the power of death and destruction.

However, the deathly black flames sent out by the Blackfire Blade joined with the Blue Lotus Truefire that symbolized the power of life, fused into one!

As the surrounding disciples saw this, all of their eyes turned wide. Even the four Divine Transformation Hall Protectors had a change in expression. There were the Blue Lotus Truefire that wielded the power of creation as well as the black flames that wielded the power of death! This was fusing life and death together, creating a new might that approached the source of the Great Dao! This sort of attack was the highest manifestation of Huo Yanguang’s understanding of the Laws of the heavens and earth. Even if someone on the level of Song Baifeng were standing here, the power behind this attack would instantly kill them.

“Incredible. This attack is too fierce.”

“After reaching Ninefall, Huo Yanguang’s understanding towards the Heavenly Dao has greatly strengthened. He’s actually able to use such a move. Life and death are originally two polar opposites, wanting to fuse them is easier said than done!”

“Prepare yourselves. When Lin Ming is defeated, we must instantly save him. Do not let his life be in danger or we won’t be able to deal with the consequences.”

The four Divine Transformation realm Hall Protectors gathered their potential, preparing to rescue Lin Ming. This was their duty as the arbiters and witnesses of this battle.

As Lin Ming faced this monstrous flame, his complexion slightly changed. Without having crossed the ninth stage of Life Destruction and withstanding the baptism of the Heavenly Dao, it was impossible for him to compare with such a mysterious comprehension of Laws. A Ninefall genius of the Divine Realm was no simple matter!

Since he couldn’t compare with comprehension of Laws, he could only break through with absolute strength!

Lin Ming started to recite a string of strange syllables. Except for himself, no one was able to understand what he was saying.

“The world originates from grandmist. You are the source of all creation. When fire creates life, that is also you creating life. You are the home to which all returns after destruction. When all life is destroyed, everything shall return to grandmist. The annihilation of fire is also your annihilation! The space you form shatters all Laws! Fire belongs to the five elements. The five elements cannot exist. Life and death belong to essence energy. Essence energy cannot exist!”

In that moment, Lin Ming’s eyes bloomed with a black-gray light. A faint mist formed in Lin Ming’s eyes; that was the elementary form of grandmist energy!

After hiding the dazzling Prime Emperor Lotus Flower, the grandmist space was compressed to an area of 50 feet around Lin Ming. However, this sort of compression actually caused the grandmist space around Lin Ming to be even more solid and realistic!

What could the Blue Lotus Domain even be considered as? In this world, grandmist was the origin of all things. Grandmist space was the most source domain! The Blue Lotus Domain could only be considered a tiny branch of the Concept of Fire; it was simply unable to compare!


The atmosphere trembled. A tearing sound filled the air. The dual flames released by Huo Yanguang were actually constantly annihilated by some invisible strength!

Lin Ming was like a divine dragon leaping through the sea, crashing through the winds and waves, unstoppable and indomitable! All the fire was completely broken by the Phoenix Blood Spear!

Whether it was the Blue Lotus Truefire that wielded the power of creation or the black flames that wielded the power of death, both were suppressed by the grandmist space.

Concept of Creation? Concept of Death? If all fire was extinguished, what Laws could there still be?


Huo Yanguang never imagined that this could happen. Lin Ming had been struck by his black flames with the power of death within them and should have been struggling to suppress his energy. Against this all-out attack of his, Lin Ming shouldn’t have had the strength to resist. He should’ve been defeated and severely wounded, but the result ran contrary to all his expectations. Lin Ming actually broke through his finishing blow!

As Huo Yanguang saw Lin Ming barreling towards him, he felt as if he were facing some ancient god. It was like some ancient god had resurrected and arrived in this world.

The aura Lin Ming exuded was the boundless vigor and atmosphere of grandmist energy. It was not a strength that a mortal should have.

The pressure of this energy left everyone stricken!

Many of the disciples present thought Lin Ming was bound to lose. But Lin Ming managed to use some move that was so potent that Huo Yanguang’s fused flames of death and creation were completely annihilated!

“What kind of strength is that? Even my heart is racing from it. That incomparably mystical energy has an aura of an unrivalled powerhouse from the Divine Realm, but it just doesn’t have the power behind it!” The four Hall Protectors were stunned. They were planning on saving Lin Ming, but now they might have to save Huo Yanguang instead!

“My domain, my Blue Lotus Domain was broken!?” Huo Yanguang could clearly feel that the Blue Lotus Domain he was so proud of, the Blue Lotus Domain that he had declared that only a peerless Emperor level talent could have, was actually ruthlessly torn apart by some invisible power coming from Lin Ming, as if it were nothing but paper!

“How can this be!? What kind of strength is this!? Is this also a domain? Damn it all! You are ferocious enough, but do you think you’ve won just by breaking it once!?”

Huo Yanguang’s pride was torn apart just like his Blue Lotus Domain. That Blue Lotus Domain had actually collapsed at the first strike.

He stepped on the Ghostly Firefade Steps and drew back while he repeatedly slashed out with the Blackfire Blade. A bronze flow of energy shot out from between his eyebrows, condensing into a small sword that fused into his domain.

“Bronze perfection, divine sword battle spirit, reinforce my domain!”

A battle spirit was invisible and intangible. It could be added to anything to strengthen its power and tenacity.

At this moment, Huo Yanguang used his greatest strength, utilizing every ability he had. Domain, Laws, true essence, and battle spirit, he used everything to win this fight and his consumption was equally great.

As Huo Yanguang’s battle spirit fused into the Blue Lotus Domain, the domain was immediately augmented, causing Lin Ming’s speed to be greatly hindered.

Lin Ming’s lips curved up in a smile.

“Silver perfection, grandmist battle spirit, break this domain for me!”

A silver gray battle spirit shot out from between Lin Ming’s eyebrows and fused into the Phoenix Blood Spear. The saint spear’s edge became far sharper than before!

This battle spirit was only a step away from reaching the gold level. After reaching the gold battle spirit boundary, he could use the battle spirit to directly kill others; he wouldn’t even need to attach it to anything. There were even those that could project the battle spirit world into the real world, causing a martial artist to be lost within it. Against a battle spirit that was just a single step away from reaching the gold level, how could Huo Yanguang’s battle spirit compare? Not to mention, Lin Ming’s battle spirit was tempered in grandmist energy and had taken in the grandmist attribute.

Peng, peng, peng!

The Blue Lotus Domain was ripped open. The Blue Lotus Truefire and burning black flames were all swept away by Lin Ming’s Phoenix Blood Spear. They melted away like snow underneath the blazing sun, fading into nihility!

This was overpowering, completely overpowering!

“Perfect silver battle spirit? Is that a perfect silver battle spirit? Am I imagining things!?”

A Divine Transformation realm Hall Protector’s eyes widened like two full moons. Because Lin Ming’s battle spirit had a special attribute, he wasn’t able to confirm at first. But after seeing the shape and power of the battle spirit, he could tell that it was undoubtedly a perfect silver battle spirit!

“What kind of joke is this? He’s only at the fifth stage of Life Destruction and I am at the late Divine Transformation realm, we’re separated by the entire Divine Sea realm as well as four stages of Life Destruction and three boundaries of Divine Transformation, but even so, his battle spirit is only a level worse than mine?”

Of the four Hall Protectors, besides the leader of the four who had a small success gold level battle spirit, the other three had elementary gold battle spirits. That was only a single level better than Lin Ming’s perfect silver battle spirit.  

From the fifth stage of Life Destruction to late Divine Transformation, that was a difference of a ridiculous number of boundaries and yet their battle spirits were only a single level apart!

As for the other disciples, their battle spirit mostly paused at the bronze level. There were only some outstanding middle and late Divine Sea disciples that were able to achieve an elementary silver level battle spirit. As for silver perfection? Not even an early Divine Transformation realm martial artist might be able to accomplish that!

More importantly, They could see that Lin Ming’s battle spirit was of an extremely high quality and even had a special attribute to it! When Lin Ming’s battle spirit broke into the gold level, his comprehensive strength would rise by a massive amount!

A perfect silver grandmist battle spirit combined with the strongest grandmist space domain collided against the perfect bronze ordinary battle spirit combined with the third level Concept of Fire’s Blue Lotus Domain. What kind of result would that produce?

Not even utterly overpowering was enough to describe it!

35 thoughts on “MW Chapter 978” - NO SPOILERS and NO CURSING

  1. Oh boy…here we go again with the lengthy chatter about fire law levels and useless repetitive explanations that would take up a whole chapter… This chapter would probably just mention 1-2 attacks from the evil guy and Lin ming defending…tsk… How many times has the fire/space/lightning law levels been mentioned in the past chapters???

    1. it’s to remind the readers.. i know you know it too.. i too am impatient to witness this battle until the end.. i guess i know how you feel..haha

    2. Its a online novel, chapters(the original chapters) are released monthy(i think) so writers had to remind the readers like that, plus it gives length to the chapter, lol

      1. The explanations in MW are rather weak in comparison DE. There should be a sense of beauty and understanding that allows you to really understand strength and level of comprehension of the MC or whoever. That also effects the world-building. It’s just weak comparatively.

        For instance, He uses a spear, but he’s got sh!t for spear arts? LM just has power and uses a spear as a vehicle rather than wielding a spear and through his spear he comprehends laws and attains powers to complement that. With that said, LM is a bit of a meathead character as he’s got brute strength with little comprehension and that’s always been the case (I do not care about scheming ).

        1. Yeah, but i need to add to that point that his comprehension is not that get so he compensates his low comprehension with a stronger power

          Unlike DE’s JiNing whose comprehension is beyong god-like. Although both character’s fortuious encounters are almost similar, Lin Ming is truly below when it comes to comprehension

          Plus Lin Ming starting point compared to Ji Ning is definitely much much lower. He started off as a kid from the boondocks which was still in a mortal/lower realm, Ji Ning was the grandson of a perfecture lord and started his life in a major world that had lots of karmic power.

          Last point, Lin Ming acquires his maturity through hardship as a child, Ji Ning is a transmigrated individual who had a mind of an 18 year old, and not just any 18-year old but one who made a business so big that when he sold it to help people he gained sooo much karmic luck. So it really is hard to compare the two given their huge difference in their starting points

          P.S. Author of DE is a novelist who had written soo much novels, MW’s author, i haven’t heard about, though when I tried to check on novel updates, DE’s author had written more, so i guess its the experience

          1. Starting points: Ning is born with crippled meridians but to a well of family.(In their area which was counted as the backwater shed of a backwater town) He was also borne with a god visualization tec. He gets put through a trial of life and death and gains a god legacy early. LM is born to the branch of a well of family in their country. Has a few rough years and then fins the magic cube which is jammed full with some of the best tec of the divine relm. So I would think LM had a WAY better starting point.

            And Ning’s entire 18 years in his old life was one big hardship.

        1. For some reason I can’t reply to your other response, so I’m replying to this one. Ji Nings original life being a hardship is actually a BENEFIT not a drawback. That’s part of why he has such a strong mentality and soul to begin with. Basically, because he’s already gone through hardship he has the ability to ignore hardship more easily and gain/retain clarity. He also trained in body transformation, so his crippled meridians really didn’t mean anything, since those are only of primary importance to Ki Refiners, and once he hit Xiantian stage as a body refiner it immediately solved that problem, allowing him to become a dual-type cultivator.

          1. Yes, Ning’s comprehension IS his strength. The beautiful thing is, is that the entire DE series is truly about HIS cultivation, not petty repetitive fights that we can predict a mile away. 1k chapters in and we are still blatantly excusing that LM has no idea how any of the gifts he’s received works and that he literally states that he couldn’t comprehend most anything without the sheer depth of their mystical background.

            I read these chapters and I have no sense of scale for any of the powers besides the OP-ness of it all and these “laws” which are essentially ‘Dao’ give nothing to showing us “the path” that he will be taking besides consuming heavenly materials. I guess it makes sense. In DE, I know the Daos, how they relate to the formation of the universe, how life can is born of it and essentially that all Daos are an expression of a single Dao that birthed everything and as you master your Dao path and unveil the secrets, you gain power from them, then control them until you can ultimately free yourself their constraints and exist as a singular entity gaining eternity. The latter being the single most difficult thing in the universe.

            LM though? I guess because he doesn’t know sh!t, we don’t know sh!t either.Magic Cube? Heretical God force? 8 Gates and 9 Palaces? Grandmist? He’s gaining sh!t when he hasn’t (nor have we been told) solved a single mystery yet. OH! I forget! he’s ONLY 27! Sheesh. He went from a butcher to the most powerful “under the heavens” in only 10 years and he clearly has a lack of comprehension, but he can outwit old ancient powers from the divine realm a 100-1000x his age?

            It’s clearly bad, inconsistent character and world development from the writer. The final straw has to be these recent chapters make me understand what reading an episode of DBZ during the Freeza saga would be like. It’s just too much.

    1. Same here bro,
      I was like ‘damn! The whole fight is gonna be awesome, the tranlator published it so there wont be cliff hanger’
      Then when the huang guys was unleasing his blue lotus fire thingy, i was like “hey, how many chapter had i read?”
      After that i check the chapter num and looked at the side bar, i was like, “holy cow!! Freaking cliffhanger!! I almost fell, damn it!”
      Cant wait for tomorrow

  2. Do we really need to spend 10 chapters on fight with insignificant character that only serve as catalyst so Lin Ming can get his hands on some phoenix blood and other stuff?
    This dragging of chapters is the reason why we it took more than 900 chapters to get to divine realm when it could have been done in maybe 100-200 chapters…

    1. 100-200? That would leave no explanations, rushed arcs and an mc that has no social life at all. would not read. But cutting it down to around 500-600 would probably be great.

      1. i thnk if it is 200 chapters, he want to read something like this..

        LM attack the enemy. The enemy defended successfully. The enemy attack LM and injured LM. LM and the enemy attack each other. LM killed the enemy succesfully. LM obtained the gambling stake. LM breaktrough 6th stage LD.. another enemy appears.. and the fight repeat like what happened before..

        HAHAHA.. LoL.. I dnt even want to take a glance to this..

    2. we are probably still 200 chapters or more away from our MC achieving the first divine realm (divine sea).. and at the moment I’m so disappointed in his recent stupidity and the novels constant use of repetition that I’m not sure if I will drop this before that happens.

      1. I am really starting to hate this novel since the “laws” were main focus of the story and constant repetition of arcs…

        1. MC comes to sect
        2. Instant challenge from some douche bag “young master”
        3. Meets woman that is higher status then him, in the end makes her his wife.
        4. Kills all the enemies without any problem.
        5. Moves to another place/sect and the story restarts from point 1 again…

        I would be not surprised that Fairy Feng or whatever her name is will become his wife…
