Chapter 987: Disciple Recruitment

Seeing that Shi Ping and Shi Fei were crippled, everyone in Brocade Spring Court was left at a loss for words. The development had completely exceeded everyone’s expectations.

Originally, Shi Ping and Shi Fei had paid a heavy price to make Yi Yun endure the Helltoothed Dao Tapir’s devouring force. People had believed that Yi Yun was just being sharp tongued, which would eventually end up in him falling for his own scheme.

But no one ever believed that the outcome would reach such a state. Yi Yun’s Dao Domain was not only not crippled, instead, it was Shi Ping and Shi Fei who had a large amount of their Dao drawn away and had their prior insights of Dao drastically reduced. They were at the extreme limit of the Heaven Ascension realm, and they were about to condensed their Dao fruits, but with their Dao Domains gone, how were they going to condense Dao fruits?

Immediately, everyone looked at Yi Yun. At that moment, Yi Yun’s energy was nearly depleted. He was hovering mid-air as he recovered his stamina.

People began to see Yi Yun’s strength as being even more unfathomable. It was hard to imagine that in just one year, Yi Yun was able to possess such a terrifying Dao Domain — if that gray vortex was a Dao Domain that is.

“Felicitous Rain… ” Old Man Changsheng said with a deep voice.

He was incensed and he hoped to kill Yi Yun to ease his fury, but in front of Felicitous Rain Lord, he could not do a thing.

“Yes?” Felicitous Rain Lord gave Old Man Changsheng a perfunctory glance.

“It’s fine if you didn’t appreciate Shi Ping and Shi Fei, but why did you cripple their Dao?”

By stopping Old Man Changsheng at the very last moment — despite it being for a very short period of time — Felicitous Rain Lord had created such an outcome. Although Shi Fei and Shi Ping were crippled by Yi Yun directly, there was no way for Felicitous Rain Lord to shirk any responsibility either.

“Martial practitioners must be able to undertake responsibilities. You said that I didn’t appreciate them, but in fact, my standards aren’t that high. People who know how to compromise are people who I appreciate. Those without sufficient strength but can bear disgrace and a heavy burden are people who I appreciate as well.”

When Felicitous Rain Lord said that, he looked at Chi Zhuiyun. In the final Dao Domain assessment, it wasn’t too much to say that Chi Zhuiyun had born disgrace and a heavy burden.

“Of course, the ones that I appreciate the most are those with strength and know how to beat their enemies through novel means… ”

When Felicitous Rain Lord said that, he cast his gaze at Yi Yun and nodded slightly.

“What I don’t appreciate are people who are unaware of their own limitations, go back on their word, and people who cannot pay the price for their actions. These kind of people are not what I would take in as disciples. Now, I’ll be announcing the disciples that I want to take in!”

When Felicitous Rain Lord said that, everyone’s hearts tightened, especially in the towering tree’s hall. The king and the other important figures of the Oracle Fey Kingdom braced themselves by sitting up straight.

They were actually feeling somewhat disheartened. Yi Yun was simply too dazzling. He had stood head and shoulders above the rest, so they felt that Chi Zhuiyun’s chances were slim.

“I am willing to take in Chi Zhuiyun as an in-name disciple! Chi Zhuiyun, are you willing?”

It was unexpected that the first person that Felicitous Rain Lord mentioned was Chi Zhuiyun.

Chi Zhuiyun was delighted. Back when he chose the ordinary Dao Tapir because he did not dare to face the Helltoothed Dao Tapir, it was equivalent to him giving up. He never expected that Felicitous Rain Lord would still be willing to take him in as a disciple.

“Yes, this disciple is willing!” Chi Zhuiyun said politely.

The Oracle Fey Kingdom king heaved a sigh of relief. Although Chi Zhuiyun’s results were inferior to Yi Yun’s, he had finally passed the assessment.

Seeing Chi Zhuiyun become an in-name disciple, Tianya Haoyue felt extremely jealous. Felicitous Rain Lord did not even mention him, destroying any hope that was left in him.

The difference was just too great. He was inferior to Chi Zhuiyun, and as for Yi Yun, the gap was probably the same distance as one end of the world to the other.

It was a given that Felicitous Rain Lord would take Yi Yun in as a disciple. However, what made people puzzled was that even though Felicitous Rain Lord was announcing who he was taking in as disciples, why didn’t he say Chi Zhuiyun and Yi Yun’s names together? Why did he ask them individually?

Could it be… ?

A few people realized a possibility and this possibility left them stifled!

“I am willing to take Yi Yun in as a… personal disciple! Yi Yun, are you willing?”

When Felicitous Rain Lord said that, there was silence everywhere, including the area outside Brocade Spring Court. The projection was shown to everyone allowing millions of people to see it. They were left in shock!

A Divine Lord’s personal disciple!

A Divine Lord had an extremely long life. If they did not die as a result of unnatural means, they could live for tens of millions of years. But in such a long period of time, the number of personal disciples that they took in was a handful.

Typically, some personal disciples who had yet to mature fully would die before the Divine Lord’s death. That resulted in the Divine Lord taking in new disciples.

Once someone became Felicitous Rain Lord’s personal disciple, the amount of resources that they could enjoy would be enviable. Furthermore, Felicitous Rain Lord was no ordinary Divine Lord. He held remnant pages of the ‘Ten Thousand Fey Divine Canon’ in his possession!

The ‘Ten Thousand Fey Divine Canon’ was one of the top twelve cultivation techniques in the 12 Empyrean Heavens.

How big an opportunity was it to be able to study the remnant pages of the ’’Ten Thousand Fey Divine Canon’?

“Personal disciple… personal disciple… Master actually… ”

At that moment, Song Wuchen was sitting not far from Felicitous Rain Lord. When he heard the two words, ‘personal disciple’, his brain felt like it had been struck by a sledgehammer. Immediately, his brain went blank as his ears buzzed.

He was previously worried that when Yi Yun became an in-name disciple, he would be valued greatly by Felicitous Rain Lord and eventually reach the position of personal disciple. But he never expected that now, Felicitous Rain Lord was immediately giving Yi Yun the title of personal disciple!

The thing that he was most worried about had happened. Song Wuchen felt his chest turn heavy as he became short of breath. His heart was filled with anger and disgruntlement, but Yi Yun’s tremendous talent left him completely unsure as to how to beat him.

To gain the personal guidance of a Divine Lord, the remnant pages of the ‘Ten Thousand Fey Divine Canon’, as well as top-grade resources, how far could Yi Yun mature considering his rare talent?

It was completely unimaginable.

“Could Yi Yun become a Divine Lord?” A Oracle Fey Kingdom prince said in a daze.

He knew that the moment that Yi Yun became a personal disciple of a Divine Lord, his status would far exceed any prince or princess in the six-country alliance. As for a successor to a large family clan, they were just a joke when compared to Yi Yun.

Just a moment ago, they felt that Yi Yun had no background, but now… with Felicitous Rain Lord propping him up, his background and status were several times stronger than them. These made the Oracle Fey Kingdom prince feel greatly depressed.

“Become the next Divine Lord? It wouldn’t be that easy. Since time immemorial, the number of Divine Lords that exist in the same era is basically fixed. The chances of a Divine Lord’s disciple becoming a Divine Lord as well is extremely small.” Someone else said.

However, they all knew that even if Yi Yun could not become a Divine Lord in the future, he was bound to be an existence only second to a Divine Lord. He would be something far beyond their reach.

“Thank you senior for his appreciation. This junior is willing!”

Yi Yun gave a bow meant for acknowledging a master. Indeed, Yi Yun would not be willing if it was to become Felicitous Rain Lord’s in-name disciple. But a personal disciple was completely different. Up to now, Yi Yun’s practice of martial arts might have given him powerful inheritances, but he lacked a true master that could give him systematic advice when it came to martial arts.

It could be said to be extremely timely to gain the advice of Felicitous Rain Lord before he condensed his Dao fruits.

    1. You already know the reaction. A bunch of omg and “this is impossible!” Will be flying around while the IRS will call for YY to take responsibility. The FRL will tell them to pissed off and leave his “personal disciple” alone. The guy with the Shura domain from the Oracle fey will be in-name disciple in the end I think.

      1. @silvercrow88:
        When you said IRS, I was like “wha–?” Wtf is the IRS doing in a fantasy world?! I came here to escape the politics and bullshit. For a moment, I even thought that the IRS was there to tax the resources YY would get as a personal disciple. “YY, you have been evading your income tax since xxxx year & we’ll take 10% of those resources plus another 10% late fee…”

      2. I wish the author would return to his original writing like martial world or the rest of his works till three arcs from now. these last three arcs have been so slow, and we all knew what was going to happen from the beginning he didn’t need to spend so much time on it. At this point he should 1/3 of the way into the phantom sect with Yi Yun showing how op he is while half way into it finding out that his dao parter is in the phantom sect but still converts to his side.

        1. Why? I think MW and TMW are two of the best xianxia stories I’ve read, and it’s precisely because of all the little details. If anything, I wish both protagonists would sometimes go back and visit old places they’ve been, rather than always trudging on forwards ever upwards. What you’re describing is basically MGA, where there’s little buildup and everything moves at light speed – it makes for a pretty shallow story, by comparison. IMO you can’t have a good climax without some decent foreplay beforehand – true in both writing and other things.

  1. why chapter released few and slow compare to previous? is the author going attending some kind of event or tour? well i still can read tmw one chapter a day, its just the curiosity of mine

      1. Truth be told, ever since he started dating that other author (Dark Lychee or something) he slowed down a lot. Can’t blame the guy, his pacing when writing is still good. It’s just that some chapters feel just like filler. And those freaking cliffhangers… Well, if they annoy me I guess they are doing their job, but damn…

          1. When it started he somedays released 4 chapters in a single day. If we take the average so far, it should be somewhere between 12-15 chapters a week. The last couple of months it slowed down to about 8-10 a week.

          2. I don’t know about raw releases but the reason we are getting slow now is because translation has caught up to raws. We used to get almost 10-12 a week at the very least when we were still not caught up with raws. Remember that event last year when it was over 20 chapter released in less than a week? Almost every novel on the site had mass release. It was great!!!

          3. I’m still talking about the author. At the start he released way more chapters per week than nowadays. It feels like he is having a harder time writing now than he did before. It is actually normal, I guess. He must be consistent with what he wrote before and that takes a lot of planning.

      2. Inspiration makes the words flow like water. The most likely way to encounter inspiration is to go out and experience life. When inspiration strikes we will have speedy chapters again. Until then I think it best to just offer the author well wishes and thank the translating team.

  2. Damn while reading, I was actually quite worried that Yi Yun will decline such offer, thank Linley that I’m just paranoid lol

    Thanks for the chapter

    1. Yi Yun already stated he is willing if he was selected for personal discipline, but not in name about 10+ chapters back. When he was on his way to the selection.

  3. YES! It finally happened. I was always fearful that something bad would happen, some untimely event or reason would crop up that would prevent him from becoming a personal disciple. But it is finally official! With his new status he will also be able to use the resources of the six country alliance to try to find Lin Xintong. Maybe he might even get an entire fey skeleton to boost his bloodline! OK, maybe I am getting ahead of myself.

  4. I hope next chapter is not going to be filler chapter, with mindless audience just expressing shocks. I rather he doesn’t release a chapter then mindless filler.

  5. Thanks again. Yi-Yun seems to be surrounded by 10,000’s. “10,000 Primordial Beast Totem”, “10,000 Wheel of Destruction” and now ‘Ten Thousand Fey Divine Canon’, just saying;

  6. I wonder when hes going to start cultivating his body using that manual he got earlier also seems past due for his nine neonate to go through its second tribulation and idk if I missed something but isn’t the Great Empress Heart Sutra made from a combination of 2 of the 12 divine canon so wouldn’t switching to the 10,000 Fey Divine Canon seem like a downgrade especially since he mainly cultivates pure yang laws and the heart sutra has yin and yang?
    Not trying to nitpick but thoughts anyone?

  7. I wonder how many Dao fruit Yi Yun will create.
    1. Major destruction
    2. Ancient tree – withering
    3. Pure Yang
    4. Sword intent
    5. Saber intent

    1. 6. Pure Yin
      He has the memories of the Demon God for space, and he can get Yin by complementing Yang, the opposite of what Xintong did in the Sword Palace

      1. Yes, almost forgotten about them. So he has the possibility of at least 7 Dao fruits. Wonder how many are going to have 9 leaves. 8-9 for Pure Yang, withering, sword and saber intent (or maybe sword and saber are merged into the major destruction)? Maybe 5-7 for Yin and space? As for major destruction, he spent 18 years and then destroy it to reconstruct the major destruction for a year. I hope it will be 9 leaves as it seem the author is focusing on it.

        1. If I had to say, I would guess something like:
          Major Destruction, Pure Yang and sword – 9
          WIthering and Saber – 8
          Space and Yin – 7
          He never focused or used space and Yin in combat. Although he might have above average insights in it, they will never be his focus. But I suspect the Seven Petal Flower he got can increase the number of leaves he has in some of the fruits. We’ll see.
