Chapter 955: The Competition for Disciplehood

In the vast cosmos, a spirit cruiser was mid flight.

The spirit cruiser had reached a nebulous zone before it was devoured by the sudden appearance of a black entrance.

The ancient self-standing space inside the black entrance was where the core of the Oracle Fey Kingdom in the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven was. Legends said that at the formation of the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven, an Ancient Fey had died, leaving behind the world that was in its body. After a long period of time, the world had transformed into a space.

In the ancient space, there was a large floating island, with several small islands surrounding it. These islands were where people of high status lived in the Oracle Fey Kingdom. There were restrictive rings around the area, preventing people from approaching them.

And on the large floating island, there was the vast and bustling Fey empire. In the middle of the Fey empire stood more than ten large towers, with surging martial intent exuding from them.

Chi Zhuiyun lived in one of the towers. Ever since he had lost to Yi Yun in the Luo clan, he had entered reclusion inside the tower.

People would come to visit him, either to comfort him or to gloat, but Chi Zhuiyun did not meet them.

Yu Tianfeng came to the tower’s entrance and he transmitted his voice to the tightly-closed door, “Do you still plan on attaining a higher level of martial arts, or do you plan on always losing to Yi Yun?”

Just as Yu Tianfeng said this, the door opened.

Chi Zhuiyun stood at the door and while looking at Yu Tianfeng, he said, “Yi Yun is no longer my goal. My goal is my own martial path.”

He had thought through it. There were heavens beyond heavens, and people beyond people. Even if he did not lose to Yi Yun, he would have lost to someone else.

Yu Tianfeng was surprised before he shook his head. “I came to tell you that all hope isn’t lost for you to become Felicitous Rain Lord’s disciple.”

Chi Zhuiyun’s expression changed.

He no longer treated Yi Yun as his opponent, but he obviously still wanted to become a Divine Lord’s disciple. That was his greatest regret.

“Felicitous Rain Lord is about to leave the Oracle Fey Kingdom. He has failed to recruit a personal disciple, but he has agreed to the Oracle Imperial Patriarch to expand his recruitment by taking in a few in-name disciples,” said Yu Tianfeng.

In-name disciples?

Chi Zhuiyun’s eyebrows pricked up. A Divine Lord might only have a few personal disciples, but in-name disciples could number in the hundreds or thousands. Divine Lords that lived especially long might even have in-name disciples who die of age, resulting in them having tens of thousands of in-name disciples in total.

A person like Felicitous Rain Lord had only become a Divine Lord for tens of thousands of years, but the number of in-name disciples that he had was already in the dozens.

“Don’t underestimate in-name disciples. A Divine Lord’s in-name disciple is comparable to the top geniuses of a large faction. Furthermore, by working for a Divine Lord, their status would not be low. Most importantly, there is a chance of becoming a personal disciple by becoming an in-name disciple!” Yu Tianfeng said as he could tell what was on Chi Zhuiyun’s mind.

A Divine Lord’s personal disciple could sometimes be chosen from his in-name disciples.

“In the disciple recruitment this time, in-name disciples of Felicitous Rain Lord will be coming, so they can compete for a spot as a personal disciple,” said Yu Tianfeng.

Felicitous Rain Lord’s choosing of personal disciples was done through a selection throughout the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven. Therefore, his in-name disciples were naturally eligible to compete for it.

“A chance to become a personal disciple!”

Chi Zhuiyun’s eyes lit up.

“It’s not possible for the Imperial Patriarch to block the spread of the news, and now, there should be geniuses from various large factions coming here. However, with your strength, in addition to you having gained Felicitous Rain Lord’s approval, it should not be a problem for you to become an in-name disciple.”

Yu Tianfeng still had a grudge with Yi Yun. Chi Zhuiyun had gained Felicitous Rain Lord’s approval, and if not for Yi Yun’s putting his foot out, causing Chi Zhuiyun to miss the chance of becoming a personal disciple, Chi Zhuiyun would not have to compete to become an in-name disciple.

Now, with the one year finishing, the surprisingly difficult requirement was not something that Yi Yun could accomplish, even if he had three heads and six arms. It was not so simple to become a personal disciple of a Divine Lord.

The news of Felicitous Rain Lord’s recruiting in-name disciples quickly proliferated throughout the alliance!

In the coming days, there were spirit cruisers that constantly arrived at the ancient self-standing space.

The capital of the Oracle Fey Kingdom was immediately where many geniuses gathered.

There were geniuses from large factions who were gathered in the restaurants and tea shops every day. Yi Yun’s name would be mentioned from time to time.

“Perhaps, Yi Yun from the Luo clan might come as well.” A warrior said.

“To compete for a spot as an in-name disciple? That’s very possible!” Another warrior said. They had heard that Fairy Ningshuang had listed the requirements on Felicitous Rain Lord’s behalf. The requirements were prohibitively difficult. Even a genius like Yi Yun could not meet the requirements.

“He has no chance of becoming a personal disciple, but the chance of becoming an in-name disciple obviously cannot be missed. If he comes, wouldn’t our chances of becoming in-name disciples become slimmer?” Another warrior shook his head with a wry smile.

After coming, they realized that the spots as in-name disciples of a Divine Lord were also extremely sought after. Top geniuses had come, and even Chi Zhuiyun was participating in it.

However, they did not leave either. Since they had already come, they might as well take the opportunity to watch the recruitment. It was possible for them to gain insights from the performance of top geniuses.

“The requirements that Fairy Ningshuang mentioned to become a personal disciple are impossible to complete.”

“That’s right. Even Yi Yun could, it’s really too demanding.”

While these warriors were conversing, they suddenly heard a cold snort. “A few frogs in a well. How can Martial Aunt Ningshuang be maligned by people like you?”

This voice made the geniuses who were drinking wine frown. They were geniuses from various countries as well. So how could they be ridiculed? They immediately took an angry glance.

The snort came from one of two black-robed warriors who wore jade bands on their heads. One of them had long hair, with two white horns on his head. He was sneering as he looked at the warriors.

The warriors looked at them with frowns on their faces. It was unknown what faction those two people came from. The clothing that they wore was something the warriors failed to recognize. They could only see the profound patterns on the jade bands.

“Only shallow people will think that others can’t accomplish what they can’t do.” The warrior with the horns on his head said with a tone of arrogance.

“Such impressive blowing of one’s own trumpet, aren’t you afraid that the wind will get too strong and cut your tongue? Try accomplishing it for me to see!” Anger flashed on warrior’s face as he retorted.

“My Senior Brothers, Song Wuchen and Tian Xun, would be able to accomplish it.” The warrior said lightly.

Song Wuchen? Tian Xun?

The warriors present looked at each other. They had never heard any of those names before.

“Junior Brother Zhang, why do you bother to talk to them?” said the warrior beside the horned warrior. “At the recruitment meeting, they will naturally know that Senior Brother Song Wuchen would definitely be able to be promoted to a personal disciple! These people actually believe that Martial Aunt’s requirements were given to Yi Yun, but Yi Yun is just the number one genius of a tiny country, so how can he be worthy to be given the requirement by her? Martial Aunt Ningshuang’s requirements were originally given to Senior Brothers Song Wuchen and Tian Xun.”

The two warriors continued to speak, completely ignoring the dirty looks from the other people in the restaurant.

“Let’s go. It’s just a bunch of people dreaming to ascend to the heavens in a single step. In my point of view, Yi Yun and Chi Zhuiyun can only barely become in-name disciple. They can forget about becoming a personal disciple!”

The youth who spoke left behind a relic and left.

“Promoted to a personal disciple? They called Fairy Ningshuang Martial Aunt? Could… they be Felicitous Rain Lord’s in-name disciples!?” A warrior suddenly said in shock.

After Felicitous Rain Lord came to the Oracle Fey Kingdom, he lived on one of the independent floating islands. There were heavy restrictions placed around it. But now, the recruitment meet was chosen to be held at the Oracle Fey Kingdom’s capital to prevent the gathered geniuses from disturbing Felicitous Rain Lord. The disciples that lived on the independent islands with Felicitous Rain Lord naturally came to the royal capital as well.

With that said, the two people were most likely Felicitous Rain Lord’s in-name disciples. The Song Wuchen they mentioned was likely one of Felicitous Rain Lord’s in-name disciples as well.

These warriors quickly looked in the direction that the two had left in, but the two had taken two steps into the crowd before vanishing, with no traces of them being left behind.

    1. He is having his epiphany right now. That is, a sudden comprehension of the truth. Since his mind was inside the mental world, he is having this epiphany there. It is all an illusion, although his real body should show a phenomenon just like Princess White Fox, except way, way greater.

  1. I guess that not only he will condense a Destruction Dao Domain, he will even fuse it with his Pure Yang and Sword insights. Maybe even space and time (withering). All the signs in his epiphany are pointing to this.

  2. 10000 demon wheel of existence has been reconstructed a sword, but is a sword enough to reign as the emperor of destruction? No. Only a brick would. Where ever a brick smash, who dares show their face.

    1. Actually that should be his new ultimate move. Just like how that one dude was able to condense his domain into the celestial demon form, Yi Yun should condense his domain into a brick that he smacks his opponents with

  3. It’s really sad that he doesn’t seem to care nor remember JX anymore. She doesn’t even come into his mind as motivation to get stronger, when back in the lian tribal arc ++ he is mostly doing things for JX. Instead all he seems to care about now is the “orgasm” he gets from touching the origins of dao or something and a bit of wanting to find LX. Smh. What a shame, really.

      1. In danger or not, the way yi yun now is acting is so OoC.
        He didn’t even meet her before going to the 12EH, and that’s after years of reclusive training.
        They don’t seem to have any notable reunion/conversation either during the BDG arc, despite having been seperated for so long.
        Actually, for someone who has loved his “sister” (romantically or not is up to you) to the point of being able to sacrifice your life, the way he has disregarded her for the last hundreds of chapters is pretty abnormal to say the least.
        Haven’t seen her for the last 20 years or so, and she didn’t even come up in his mind?
        I mean, come on Jx was time and time again portrayed as the most important person in yi yun’s lifesince the start to the tian yuan world.
        Remember the time when the staff from the divine tower asked yi yun who is the most important person in his life or something and JX’s face came up? Yeeeeah, good old times…
        Also wasn’t he trying to get strong in the first place to give jx a good life and to be able to extend her life as well through giving her good cultivation or whatever? (Probably so they could live together longer)
        But everything that’s happening now seems counterproductive to that point.

        Ofc, it’s been a long while so there might be some parts i’m remembering not well.

        1. It goes back to the main point he brought up. He knows she is perfectly safe, plus she was in meditations too before he left. She is part of the most powerful faction in their little world so no one can harm her. Plus if she was in trouble absolutely nothing he can do. This is same principle with lin xintong, he know she is alive through their cultivation method. He knows his best chance of finding her is to become stronger. Until then don’t worry excessively about it because it will only slow his cultivation.

          1. 1) that’s exactly it. There’s absolutely nothing he can do if something were to happen to her. Something that could have been avoided if yi yun didn’t just dump her in the jungle. At the BDG arc, JX was maybe just slightly weaker than yi yun due to the fact that she has just awakened her bloodline. And upon knowing her extraordinary origins, she should have by far a higher potential than LX. Imagine Huo’er despite the lacking quality of resources in tai ah but due to her rich bloodline and a couple of years/a decade in 12 EH, she was still able to become a peerless genius. and here we have JX who is supposed to have a richer bloodline than her. But good job yi yun, you just left her to probably the worse place to get cultivation resources from. Or at least, her cultivation progress would still be impaired by a lot. She’s probably still a sage atm or something while yi yun is nearly at dao manifestation now.
            2) she wasn’t in meditation as far as i can remember, she was watching yi yun depart with her mother.
            3) he doesn ‘t necessarily have to worry about JX though, just the fact that he cares or seemingly cares is enough. Iirc, the last time yi yun thought of her, it was solely because of his father of all things.

            Aaaaaalso, if i was bound to be a disciple of some ultra level character, the first thing that would come to my mind is to get all my relatives since by then almost nobody can touch them + they’ll get a ton of higher quality resources to boot.

        2. 1.) “Haven’t seen her for the last 20 years or so” I doubt she can go to the 12EH by herself.
          2.) “she didn’t even come up in his mind?” We don’t need a portion of the chapter of him thinking about her.
          3.) ” the way he has disregarded her for the last hundreds of chapters is pretty abnormal to say the least.” Well she’s not in the 12EH and he’s not going to go back to their world(not yet if he will). He’s focusing on getting stronger to find LX, if his sister is safe why even worry about her? Did you forgot that a war with that sect is coming up soon?

          Unless he gets so strong he can easily go back or the clan can take him back. But why would he let her come into the 12EH when there’s still that war.

          1. 1.) What is going to happen to her in their world? There’s a reason why the Lou clan used that place to send Hou’er.
            2.) Idk about JX having a better bloodline than Hou’er.
            3.) Someone as important as Hou’er, she probably brought her own resources. Like you said about the lacking quality of resources, why would the Luo clan let her use those?
            4.) If he did bring her, they will still get seperated. The difference being he has to find 2 people now.

          2. 1) he left her, that’s why. Actually jx has the one with the most reason to go to the 12EH and if we’re to believe her aptitude to cultivating, she should have been more than capable to catch up or at least not lag behind yi yun/LX who has like tons of cultivation resources via GAT.

            2) yes, 20 years of not thinking about the most important person in your life. That’s actually telling of just how much important she is to him right?

            3) see point 1)
            He’s thinking about becoming a divine lord’s disciple and you haven’t even thought that if it did happen it would pretty much make the war irrelevant?
            Divine lord = protection + ultra class resources/manuals.
            Also, a healthy divine lord is more than capable of going back to the Tian yuan world. I mean, JX’s dad and AYL were able to despite both being heavily injured.

        3. “Haven’t seen her for the last 20 years or so, and she didn’t even come up in his mind?”

          And we have a guy that has been around for millions of years, with his disciple that has been around for more than 50,000 years. 20 years isn’t much JX’s lifespan is probably well over a thousand at this point.

          1. I think you’re missing the point. Despite the long lifespans in TMW, yi yun has only lived so far for only 40+ years. The idea of that concept is still alien in his life. He’d still be perceiving things like a normal human wherein a year feels like eternity. Aaaaaand for that 40+ years of living, just how long exactly did he interact with JX? Haven’t even lived together for a year, i’d bet.

    1. Well for the author it will be bad for him to mention JX constantly as it will get old pretty fast if all the mc does is worry over everyone he left behind, its best for the author to mention it once or twice as hints before reintroducing the old character rather than constantly reminding us of mc’s past deeds and people.

      1. Idk, I think he has a point. MC didn’t even say goodbye to anyone in his original world, not his sister or any of the disciples there or anything, he just took off without a word iirc. Now he has been gone for like 20+ years. This is alongside the fact that he only just reunited with his sister after being separated for most of the story, and he just leaves without a word, they didn’t really even have a single conversation between them reuniting and him leaving again. Now he has not thought about her (as far as we know) for over 20 years. No ones asking the author to make him think of her every chapter, but it has literally been over a hundred chapters since she was mentioned at all. It wouldn’t hurt to have one chapter where he at least thinks about his past or misses someone.

  4. Oh wow another tournament arc, how creative. Ever since we arrived in this place all we’ve seen is tournament after tournament. Im sorry but this is the epitome of lazy writing.
    Thanks for the translation though even though it pains me to see you put so much effort into laziness.

      1. I have no problem with tournament arcs, but I do believe they should be spaced out a little more, but in this particular case, I don’t mind it so much because it just feels like chi Zhuiyun was just the preliminaries. But I will agree that the novel has a lot of pacing issues and the entire 12 heaven arc has been pretty dull and unimaginative. In fact, ever since the abrupt end of the tai ah divine city arc by the appearance of the Sheppard boy the novel, in my opinion, dropped massively in quality.

  5. Thanks for the chapter CKtalon and Jafz! Man these guys have their eyes on the top of their heads. Felicitous Rain Lord must not be a great teacher if he can’t even curb their arrogance when he has so few disciples.
