Chapter 333: The Might of the Ancient Symbol

As they stared at that chilling smile on Lin Dong’s face, the left and right senior elders instantly felt their scalps turn numb. However, their faces promptly turned grim. Even though the fact that Lin Dong managed to defeat Teng Sha was truly shocking, this was still the Ghastly Puppet Cult headquarters. Therefore, it would not be an easy task for him to turn this place into a bloody river!

“Every elite Ghastly Puppet Cult member listen up, active the Grand Defensive Formation!”

As the left and right senior elders’ command ricocheted across the mountain, those originally shocked elite Ghastly Puppet Cult practitioners quickly regained their senses. It seems like the reason why the Ghastly Puppet Cult was able to possess such a status in Great Desolate Province was because they were truly skilled. Even at this juncture, those Ghastly Puppet Cult practitioners still did not panic. Instead, their figures flashed as they still managed to remain disciplined.


Countless elite practitioners swarmed from every direction in the Mysterious Black Yin mountain. Finally, everyone simultaneously slammed their fists against the ground. Then, the entire Mysterious Black Yin mountain started to vibrate vigorously. Based on this scene, it was just like an earthquake had occurred, as countless large granites continuously stumbled off the mountain causing a commotion to erupt in the middle of the Ghastly Puppet Cult headquarters.

Swoosh swoosh!

As those elite Ghastly Puppet Cult practitioners slammed their fist on the ground together, the mountain peak suddenly split apart. Then, countless large light columns penetrated through the ground and gathered above the Mysterious Black Yin mountain at a terrifying pace. In a short period of time, an exceedingly huge glowing formation picture enshrouded the entire horizon.

This giant glowing formation picture gave off an exceedingly terrifying Yuan Power vibration. Everyone could tell that this was the formation that was formed from the combined strength of every elite Ghastly Puppet Cult practitioner. After all, Ghastly Puppet Cult was one of the top three factions in Great Desolate Province and everyone naturally knew that they had some tricks left.

Right now, it seems like this terrifying glowing formation picture was evidently the final trick of the Ghastly Puppet Cult!

“I never expected.. Lin Dong could actually forced the Ghastly Puppet Cult to use the Grand Defensive Formation.” When Mu Lei saw this sight, his eyelids twitched. Meanwhile, awe filled his voice.

“This Grand Defensive Formation is extremely complex to set up. The reason why the Ghastly Puppet Cult was able to activate it this quickly was because they were already prepared. However, after executing it this time, it would require a tremendous amount of effort and time in order to use it again. Therefore, in that period of time, Ghastly Puppet Cult will lose the protection of the Grand Defensive Formation and they would be in critical danger. That is because at this juncture, if another faction choose to attack them, they would lose their most powerful defences…”

When he heard Mu Lei’s words, Mu Qianqian’s beautiful eyes glimmered gently, before she glanced at the former, only to realize that a peculiar glint was not glimmering in his eyes.

Right now, Teng Sha was defeated by Lin Dong in front of countless individuals. This was undoubtedly a huge blow to both him and Ghastly Puppet Cult. Moreover, from now on, the Ghastly Puppet Cult will no longer have to guts to discuss an alliance. Furthermore, even if they tried to, they would no longer be unable to get the same reception as they did today…

With Teng Sha severely injured, the current Ghastly Puppet Cult was at its most vulnerable stage. To factions like Great Devil Sect and Marital Alliance, this was an golden opportunity for them. In this half a year’s time, Teng Sha had wantonly expanded the influence of his Ghastly Puppet Cult and it had caused much friction between them. However, since Mu Lei and Wu Zong knew that the latter was at advanced Manifestation stage, they could only choose to back down. However, right now, their patience has paid off as a golden opportunity has finally presented itself.

Mu Lei tilted his head and looked at Mu Zong, who was standing beside him. Right now, the latter was also glancing at him. Then, both of their lips trembled as an extremely soft voice tunnel into each other’s ears.

“Do you plan to make a move?”

“This is the perfect opportunity. If we give Ghastly Puppet Cult the chance to recover, in the future, the entire Great Desolate Province will definitely belong to them.”

“Yes, but let’s wait first and see how Lin Dong handles the situation. The Ghastly Puppet Cult’s Great Defensive Formation is extremely powerful and we are within it as well. If anything changes, it would be extremely disadvantageous for us.”

“Yes, let’s see how Lin Dong would react first…”

The two of them were both cunning old foxes. They were clearly aware that if they made a move now, they would be declaring an all out war with the Ghastly Puppet Cult and it would be an extremely severe matter. Therefore, if they were not fully confident of victory, they would not easily make a move…

“Lin Dong, you are simply too much. Do you think our Ghastly Puppet Cult cannot handle you?!”

Just as Mu Lei and Wu Zong secretly communicated, in the arena, when left and right senior elders saw that the formation had been successfully activated, the rage in their hearts instantly rose up. Then, they quickly sent some elite practitioners to retrieve a gravely injured Teng Sha, before they lifted their heads and shouted out angrily.

In the sky, Lin Dong lowered his head and looked at that giant glowing formation picture. The Yuan Power vibrations undulated on it were extremely alarming. In fact, even the Yuan Power vibrations on Teng Sha’s all-out attack could not be compared to this glowing formation picture. Evidently, this time around, the Ghastly Puppet Cult had fully executed their final signature move…

“Lin Dong, if you are wise, quickly retreat now. Our Ghastly Puppet Cult does not want an internecine!” Down below, left and right senior elders’ loud voice continuously sounded out.

“Pfft, an internecine. Do you think you can force one?”

However, with regards to their words, Lin Dong chose to chuckle instead The Ghastly Puppet Cult’s Grand Defensive Formation was indeed extremely tricky to deal with. However, it was not like he had no options at all. Since he had pledged to slaughter the Ghastly Puppet Cult today, he would not go back on his word!

“Since you chose to refuse our kindness and want to commit suicide, then our Ghastly Puppet Cult will fulfill your wish!” The left and right senior elders were both enraged by Lin Dong’s chuckle till their faces turned steely green. Then, both of their hand seals quickly changed. Instantly, a series of terrifyingly Yuan Power vibrations erupted from the large glowing formation picture that covered the entire Ghastly Puppet Cult, while glowing halos swiftly surged.


Just as Yuan Power above the large formation covered the entire horizon, a breaking wind sound rung out. Promptly, Little Flame and Little Marten appeared beside Lin Dong, before they released a low enraged roar. Evidently, they could sense just how formidable that large formation was.

“Lin Dong, let me help you. This large formation is quite tricky!” Little Marten softly muttered. Promptly, it transformed into a tiny light beam before it tunneled into Lin Dong’s body. Instantly, a peculiar purple glow gushed into the latter’s eyes.

With regards to its offer, Lin Dong chose not to reject it. Even though he had the upper hand in the war of words, he did not dare to underestimate this Grand Defensive Formation. After all, this was a giant formation that was the combined effort of countless elite Ghastly Puppet Cult practitioners. Therefore, if he was not careful, he might actually end up dead in this spot.

“Rumble Tumble!”

Just as Little Marten tunneled inside Lin Dong’s body, the large glowing formation picture below suddenly released thunder-like roars. Then, glowing halos swarmed in from every direction at an alarming rate, before they finally gathered at center of that glowing picture.

“Lin Dong, surrender your life!”

When they sensed that the formidable Yuan Power above the formation picture was about to erupt like a volcano, the left and right senior elders instantly roared out angrily. Next, their hand seals changed before that formation picture suddenly vibrated. Then, a rainbow-like light beam erupted from within the formation picture with a loud swoosh!

That light beam flashed across the horizon and it seemed like this entire sky was split into two by this destructive light beam. Everywhere the light beam flashed by, it left a visible mark on the sky.

This monstrous attack caused everyone here to feel a peculiar fear coursing through their bones. Even an advanced Manifestation practitioner would find it difficult to escape from such an attack!

Based on Mu Lei and the rests’ calculations, this attack was probably more powerful than anything a peak advanced Manifestation practitioner could execute!

A glowing beam flashed across the sky as Lin Dong’s expression turned solemn as well. Under the bewildered stares from the crowd, he actually directly sat down in mid-air, before his hand seals changed. Then, an ancient symbol filled with an ancient scent swiftly emerged from above his head. As it squired, it caused a wind to rage by before it transformed into a large black hole above Lin Dong’s head.

“The Art of Devouring, Devour Everything!”

A deep roar suddenly echoed out inside Lin Dong’s heart. Promptly, that black hole begun to squirm rapidly, before an exceedingly formidable Devouring Force gushed out from within.

As that Devouring Force swept forth, the light beam that shot out from the sky suddenly vanished, as if it was swallowed by that black hole.


Under the stares from the crowd that was scattered across the mountain, that destructive light beam that could even threaten a Manifestation stage practitioner directly shot into that squirming black hole.


When they saw this sight, a venomous smile instantly flashed across the left and right senior elders’ face, before their hand seals changed as they shouted out.


After the two of them shouted, a deafening noise suddenly erupted from within the black hole. Then, an extremely savage Yuan Power vibration manically swept forth. Based on this sight, it seems like they were planning to forcefully blow apart the black hole.

“Do you believe that the Devouring Ancestral Symbol will be destroyed by your attack? Devour it!”

Lin Dong’s body begun to vibrate violently due to that shock. However, a venomous glint promptly flashed across his eyes. Meanwhile, the purple glow in his eyes turned increasingly resplendent, while the size of that black hole instantly grew several times. At the same time, the Devouring Force also surged rapidly.

“Buzz buzz!”

After that Devouring Force surged, the Yuan Power storms that were gushing out from the black hole begun to instantly dissipate at an alarming rate. Meanwhile, that light beam that erupted from within the black hole were instantly devoured…


When they saw that Lin Dong had forcefully intercepted the glowing formation’s attack, a series of disbelieving exclaims instantly erupted in the arena. In fact, fear even surfaced in the eyes of that left and right senior elders. After all, they were totally unable to believe that Lin Dong could actually intercept such a terrifying attack!

“Your dog shit formation is merely so!”

As countless pairs of eyes stared in awe, in mid-air, Lin Dong stood up. Then, his palms swirled, while a Devouring Force instantly materialized beneath his fist, before he executed a punch.

“Devouring Fist!”

After punching out, countless black holes materialized beneath Lin Dong’s fist, before they transformed into vicious force winds and solemnly slammed against that glowing formation picture.

“Boom boom boom!”

After they were hit by his fist, countless micro black holes extended out, while the Devouring Force erupted forth. Then, the Yuan Power vibrations on that giant formation begun to dissipate at an alarming rate, before the entire formation instantly crumbled with a loud crack.

Buzz chii! Buzz chii!

After that large formation exploded, countless elite Ghastly Puppet Cult practitioners turned pale before most of them immediately vomited out a mouthful of fresh blood. Instantly, a potent bloody smell extended across the entire mountain peak.

In the arena, when the other sect leaders saw this miserable sight, they instantly sucked in a breath of cold air in their hearts. All of them knew that this time around, the Ghastly Puppet Cult was truly finished…

  1. Today’s lesson: plan for failure. Always build surge breakers into your Grand Standing Formation to prevent your entire sect from suffering from the backlash of its destruction.

    1. You mean an intelligent fail-safe? They would rather tell whoever/whatever they are using the formation against how dead they are. They then all start spewing blood when the formation is broken. Honestly someone could sell your idea and either be laughed at because their Formation would never fail (It’s a grand Formation after all) or they have a light-bulb moment and realise it might actually be a good idea. Sadly i would assume the former for most cases.

  2. When are these cults/sects/clans going to learn that these grand formations just end up biting them in the behind? You could stall Lin Dong with your puppets by forming neat orderly walls and then just high tail it out of there while one of the elders employs a forbidden technique and the rest of your cult (however few remain) can live to fight another day? You could use your life saving treasures all at once and in the ensuing chaos you could escape? Instead it’s reliance on a grand formation that has the unfortunate side effect of causing backlash in the form of ruptured internal organs (only way they can be coughing blood) and instead of one guy getting injured? Everyone gets injured instead. These formations need some serious fail safes employed.

    1. Shhh… No one tell Soulesschyld that this isn’t really how Martial Arts works either, or that ‘People Can Fly’ is merely the name of a Polish video game developer.

  3. Thank you for the chapter, also:
    “Every elite Ghastly Puppet Cult member listen up, /active/ the Grand Defensive Formation!”
    “Moreover, from now on, the Ghastly Puppet Cult will no longer have /to/ guts to discuss an alliance. Furthermore, even if they tried to, they would no longer be /unable/ to get the same reception as they did today…”
    Instead of “to” — “the”;
    “…they would be unable to get the same reception as they did today…”
    “…they would no longer be able to get the same reception as they did today…”, something like this.

  4. thank you very much!
    woah—! so crazy! ooh, lin dong, with little marten’s assistance, managed to break the formation! awesome! devouring symbol is also really powerful!
    hah—history will write that the beginning of the ghastly puppet cult’s annihilation began when one of the younger generation tried to steal the treasure of another…!

  5. It always boggles my mind how the author treats power in this novel. I thought that when he fused with marten that he would use the purple discs to weaken the formation before devouring it but somehow their fusion allowed him to use a stronger version of the Devouring Ancestral Symbol that not only doesn’t approve of Little Marten but as far as we know the Marten isn’t a mental energy practitioner and is only at the Manifestation stage.
    Its like how Lin Dong captured Teng Lei easily in a mental energy showdown when he should still have been a low level symbol master and Teng Lei was stronger than him in mental energy but after Lin Dong made a Yuan power/body cultivation breakthrough he can somehow treat him like a child in mental energy as well.

    1. About Little Marten using Mental Energy. There is one mention that he used to practice it in chap 249.
      About Lin Dongs Mental Energy, it was mentioned that his was always one level stronger(Example: When he was 1st grade Symbol Master his energy gave of feeling of 2nd grade). About Yuan power breakthrough affecting Mental Energy, its not the first time actually(chap 163: “Manifestation Symbol Array, Manifest, Thousand Flames!”; “…In the past, Lin Dong did not have the ability to unleash the third move. However, now that he had reached the advanced Yuan Dan Stage, he was finally able to display the full potential of this Secret Spirit Skill!)”

      1. Indeed there was, however i wonder what level Marten is, other than his special ability i still have problems believing he could boost mental energy by that much.
        Also I know that Lin Dong is always a level ahead but fighting a mid level soul symbol master should still be an even fight since he was a low level symbol master, yet he just played with him, even without using his fake devouring symbol’s special ability.

        Yea I know of previous instances where the same breakthrough in one affected the other but that’s exactly why i’ve said this because a reason was never given for it. I understand how mental energy can be used to boost projectiles and such even if they were initially Yuan power based but the other way around seems impossible unless he could already fuse the two powers which was proven to be not the case after the prayer mat showed up.
        Breakthroughs in physical body on the other hand truly seem to have no connection with mental energy or all the ghostly puppet sect should have pretty strong physical bodies to go with their mental energy cultivation (though that sort of got thrown out)

  6. You use “evidently” too much. You can use “clearly” or “obviously” in some places instead of “evidently” again and again and again.

    “The entire sky was split into two” – In this case, “into two” would sound better as “into halves” or simply “in two”

  7. Not to nitpick, but… Internecine isn’t a noun, you can’t use it that way. It’s an adjective, so there can be an “internecine battle”, but saying “we don’t want an internecine” is like saying “We don’t want a thirsty”. To correct the grammar, possibly replace both instances of internecine with “internecine result”, or “end” for a more dramatic pronunciation; internecine battle would work, but it sounds… clunky, is the best word I can use to describe it. Other suggestions could likely improve upon this.

    Thanks for the chapter though, been really digging lin dongs rise to power ^.^
