WMW Chapter 580

Vitality Bottleneck

“In terms of techniques, the mutated Fireplume is probably comparable to a top-grade meditation technique…”

Leylin checked on the point mass in his sea of consciousness. After devouring the essence of Fireplume, the point mass had not only become more concentrated, with the nebula outside expanding by half, it now emanated a trace of fiery-red amongst the darkness.

After obtaining Fireplume, his aptitude had changed. Previously, his darkness elemental affinity was the main element. Now, his fire elemental affinity had been raised, and while it was still not up to par with the darkness element, it was catching up.

“My Kemoyin’s Pupil is no longer a meditation technique solely for Giant Kemoyin Serpent Warlocks, but a top-grade one infused with Fireplume.” Leylin obviously would not start training in Fireplume all over again. He was, at his roots, a Magus, and a bloodline Warlock at that. Hence, while running its simulations, the A.I. Chip had fused the essence of Fireplume into his point mass.

Fireplume fused with Kemoyin’s Pupil. The two had been made compatible with previous simulations, and they now fused together to form a slightly mutated meditation technique.

The effects of the technique far surpassed that of the fourth level of the original Kemoyin’s Pupil, and even allowed Leylin to see hope of simulating the fifth level!

Once simulation of the meditation technique was complete, Leylin only needed to solve the bloodline issues and he would be able to rid himself of the bloodline shackles of rank 4, and pry open the realm of the Radiant Moon!

“Kemoyin’s Pupil doesn’t have a fifth level anyway. I’ll just continue calling this upgraded fused meditation technique the same thing.” Leylin continued to use the already given name with no intention to think of a new one.

Whether it was the twelfth and thirteenth levels of Fireplume or the fifth level of a meditation technique, they all enabled one to enter the Radiant Moon realm. Even if Leylin had some rough ideas about that, it would require a large period of time for him to comprehend them all.

Even so, it was still much better than having no hope at all.

“Besides Fireplume, I’ve recorded a lot of information regarding the culture, technology and geography of the Lava World. The A.I. Chip’s database is much more complete, and I’ve benefited quite a lot!” Leylin stroked his chin.

The advantage of having the A.I. Chip meant that he could leave Magi far behind in the dust in terms of his learning speed. In other worlds, he was basically like a fish in water, recording even the most complicated information with just a sweeping scan by the A.I. Chip. He could analyse and understand everything quickly, and was much faster than Magi who had to study one book after another.

For this reason, he could rapidly gain clarity on the path of strength in other worlds and fuse it into his own body, a unique advantage for himself.

“In general, the harvests were so immense during this trip to the Lava World, that my absorption is bursting at the seams…” Leylin glanced at his stats.

[Leylin Farlier. Rank 4 Warlock. Bloodline: Giant Kemoyin Serpent (Matured Body). Strength: 50, Agility: 45, Vitality: 65, Spiritual force:956.8, Magic power: 956 (Magic power is in synchronisation with spiritual force). Soul force: ???]

“The lowest numbers for spiritual force among Morning Star is 500 and above, and I’ve almost reached 1000! However, soul force has yet to be enumerated.”

Looking at the numbers, a wry smile appeared on his face.

He had obtained much in the Lava World, especially with a few advancements in his soul that allowed his soul force to rise sharply in power. While the A.I. Chip could not show the numbers, just the difference in spiritual force implied that there was a large change.

Soul force was a higher-grade version of spiritual force. Hence, advancements in the soul could be seen through advancements in spiritual force.

“However, an increase of around 400 is already beginning to exceed the limits of what my body can handle!”

The wry smile at the corner of Leylin’s lips grew even more obvious. Fireplume and the phoenix egg were treasures that put emphasis on the elements, but did not do much for strength.

While he had a large increase in spiritual force at one go, his body had already begun to show signs of an inability to endure.

This was because there was too much water in the cup, and the cup was too small. Though there weren’t any obvious residual effects yet, Leylin could only turn into a spirit and walk the path of a spirit Magus if he did not treat this in time.

“To solve this, the essence is to strengthen my vitality and allow the body, as well as the spiritual force that suddenly increased, to grow harmonious once more, and get everything done once and for all.”

Leylin commanded, “A.I. Chip, with my current control, how much vitality do I need to sustain my spiritual force?”

[Beep! Mission established, scanning of stats of host body. Beginning construction of model. Beginning deduction…]

The A.I. Chip’s robotic voice was heard as it formed a blue human figure in Leylin’s mind. Terrifying spiritual force undulations were emanated from the model.

[Deduction completed. To completely match with spiritual force, host must have a vitality of 100 or above!] The A.I. Chip intoned loyally.

“A vitality at 100 or above?” Leylin touched his chin.

As the body was a vessel for spiritual force, Magi took vitality rather seriously. They even had some techniques and body-tempering spell formations just for this.

With Leylin’s current state, with a vitality as high as 65, 90% of the techniques for increasing vitality were useless to him.

However, with his knowledge and the accumulations from his explorations in the past, he immediately had an idea.

“Not considering those remote techniques, Multilimb Strength is very suitable for me right now. Even in the worst situation, I can control my current condition and prevent it from getting worse!”

Leylin stood up with a flash of understanding and headed to another training room.

*Ka-cha!* His body suddenly contorted in a strange manner, arranging himself such that he looked like a strange rune. Bizarre joints and muscles could be heard vibrating within him.

These vibrations combined and gradually formed a slightly hoarse voice.

The voice seemed to be chanting some sacrificial text, full of a great, ancient feeling that also held within a barbaric air.

“Multilimb Strength!”

“Aoooo!” A shrunken seven-armed figure appeared behind Leylin, and with his chanting, more runes appeared from the Multi-Armed Race figure and disappeared into Leylin’s back.

When the ceremony was over, the rays of light from the Multi-Armed Race member disappeared into Leylin’s back and formed a strange golden image of the Multi-Armed Race, looking like a vivid tattoo.

Multiple golden threads scattered on Leylin’s skin and muscles, and everything quickly quietened down.

Leylin got up, looking at his palms. The skin was pale, bones slender, and there didn’t seem to be much of a difference. Occasionally, though, faint flashes of gold would be seen flashing within.

There seemed to be a layer of dense armour on his body, which made it heavy. This was nothing to Leylin. More importantly, the instant the tattoo was completed, the pressure from having his spiritual force straining his body at all times, while not completely dissipating, had reduced.

Seeing this result, Leylin heaved a long sigh of relief.

“Though Multilimb Strength can’t increase my vitality, it has an effect of sealing and reinforcing the body, which can maintain my current state. When I find more body-tempering spell formations…”

“Now, I need to quickly take care of the allied forces who are still occupying the territories that belong to the Ouroboros Clan. I’ll then make use of the Ouroboros Clan’s forces and get them to help me find treasures, potions, or spell formations and the like that can increase my vitality…”

Leylin made plans for himself, feet continuing to move until he reached another secret room.

On the door, there were many seals that formed a chain, locking the door tightly. However, a boiling heat could still be felt.

*Buzz!* A black flame automatically appeared from Leylin’s body, and it absorbed all the heat.

“Pretty good level of heat! It’s like another form of the phoenix’s flames!”

“A.I. Chip!” Leylin commanded inwardly.

[Beep! Limits to authority opened! Passed scanning!] Along with the A.I. Chip’s voice, two blue streams of data flashed from Leylin’s eyes, millions of ant-like golden words flickering and entering the seal.

*Ka-cha! Ka-cha!* The runic chain broke open, and terrifying golden flames surged out from behind the door.

*Skreeee!* As if provoked or challenged, the black flames on Leylin’s body grew more exuberant, forming a black layer of isolation that kept the door tightly shut.

Large amounts of golden flames were eaten into and devoured by the black flames as they strengthened themselves.

Such a devilish process left Leylin in shock.

After entering the secret room, one could see a giant world of ice and snow. At the heart, however, a golden sun was emanating rays of light. Numerous ice runes formed chains that restrained the sun, but it still produced a boiling heat.

In that moment, there was a deadlock between the icy blue and fiery gold.

“The bloodline of the rank 6 Sun’s Child!” Leylin’s eyes were unfocused, the black flames automatically forming the figure of a devilish black bird. Crimson eyes were glued onto the little sun in the middle, looking fearful.

“It’s a pity…” Leylin sighed once again. This was the highest-ranked bloodline he had gained thus far.

After the phoenix egg had broken, it automatically formed a dense crystal and there were no traces of its bloodline remaining, leading Leylin to start wondering if the phoenix was a bloodline creature at all. There was no way to refine any ancient bloodline in this case.

“I have a feeling that the bloodline of the Sun’s Child is very compatible with Fireplume, but it’s a pity… I already have another bloodline…”

Leylin sighed. If he had the bloodline of the phoenix, he would change his bloodline no matter how difficult it would be. However, the bloodline of the Sun’s child? That was only rank 6, and wasn’t powerful enough to motivate him to take this risk.

    1. Seems the so-called “bloodline shackles” are impurities in the bloodline, so purifying the bloodline had the effect of making him into a young snake dowager.

      Otherwise, why couldn’t the Lamia control him? Purified or not, and whether she’s weakened or not, his unpurified bloodline would be two whole ranks lower; it came from a Black Horral, not a Kemoyin. If he was only this kind of ‘purified Horral’ then the Lamia fragment should’ve easily controlled him.

      Remember that Leylin has never actually HIT the bloodline shackles: he just talks about them a lot. His bloodline playing ‘catch up’ still didn’t take anywhere near the time of a typical Kemoyin.

      It’s also absolutely absurd how quickly he powers up when encountering foreign bloodlines. The other warlock was capable of powering up using a somewhat less efficient merger between bloodlines, yet he was absolutely annihilated by Leylin, who jumped several decades of cultivation in a few moments. I don’t think that’s merely the effect of his AI chip.

      1. Bloodline shackles refer to his inability for further progress, warlocks technically train like magical beasts, their strength increases as their bloodline matures, however magical beasts only have a fixed max strength, kemoyin serpents have a rank 4 max strength and cant be any more powerful. Using kemoyin bloodline implies that the warlocks of such bloodline can only reach rank 4, they’ll rise to power faster than regular magi, but once they reach their max strength they will be shackled by their bloodline, unable to make further progress. Unless they mutate somehow of course! which is the whole deal of breaking the shackles.

        Regarding the lamia not being able to exert absolute suppression over Leylin thats because his bloodline origin is special, but its not related with the impurities. Bloodline shackles and impurities are not linked at all. If impure bloodline members have trouble increasing strength thats because their bloodline have trouble maturing, however they can forcefully enter rank 4 if they are lucky enough and have enough resources, in the process their bloodlines would be purified.

        1. I disagree with calling it a Bloodline ‘Max Strength’
          I would call it a Base Strength.
          Any child would grow to the level of their parents given time to mature. Exceeding past the level of the parent takes talent and resources.

          1. It actually is a max strength though, because as a species, the kemoyin serpent can’t get stronger than rank 4 like how a human has a limit to their speed or strength and no matter how much they train, they won’t get any faster or stronger. You’re not completely wrong in terms of base strength thing though since all kemoyin serpents become rank 4 at adulthood, but some are going to be stronger than others even in the same rank.

        2. He hadn’t mutated, and his so-called ‘Kemoyin’ bloodline was from a Black Horral, so how did he resist the mind control? Because he’s ‘special’? What kind of nonsense is that. I’m sorry you don’t like my theory, but you don’t need to make up bullshit.

          1. Your theory is just as “bullshit”, closed minded moron! This a discussion not a fight. If you don’t know how to discuss then don’t leave a comment behind! Cant believe you got butthurt because someone has a different view. So many things you said do not align themselves with what has been previously explained in the novel, I just said some speculations and you want to cry??? GET OUT OF HERE!

        3. Rofl… Who’s the one crying here. You didn’t even speculate, just complained about what I said. Why don’t you explain what doesn’t line up instead of whining?

          1. Thing is he didnt get Black Horral s bloodline because he refined it into the kemoyin, remember he got a huge amont of blood from the first and ended up with a small amount of the later

            The kemoyin being a rank 4 beast he is bound to rank 4 and even if we go with the fact that he could be stronger like a king Kemoyinh would at most be able to go one lvl higer like with the blood vulpture which would still bind him

            And the Lamia was a remanent of a memory stuck into a tiny bones and he had the cristal lady next to him in case no ?
            He even said it if just that causes me this much trouble…

  1. since he can’t use the wing of the sun unless he changed his bloodline, I wonder what the wisdom tree told him so that he can somehow combine the kemoyin pupil and the wing of the sun…………

    theory time:
    1. What if he makes a new bloodline that is solely his. He doesn’t change his bloodline but he EVOLVES it so that he can incorporate the wing of the sun into the kemoyin pupil.

    2. Like look for similar DNA’s of the kemoyin and the sun’s child then makes these DNA’s become more prominent.

    3. He would then evolve to a somewhat-stronger-Kemoyin-but-not-really-kemoyin NEW CREATURE that has both the kemoyin and the suns child’s DNA.

    4. Next step is to modify the wing of the sun+kemoyin pupil and BAM, bye bye bloodline shackles!

    1. This is what I think:
      He will advance through the means like from the Magus to improve which doesn’t rely on the bloodline’s potential to improve so this would mean that the bloodline would be just a kind of short-cut. I guess this because not even the Wings of the Sun gives much details about the Soulfource.

    2. Ok.

      Get ready for another headache hahaha

      So these are my thoughts, to answer the the thing from the previous chapter the thing Leylin did was that he didn’t do anything to the bloodline(well he did devour the fire dragon blood to get blood ignition to break through, witch could also have given him some genetic mutation in his blood line.) when he got to level 10 fireploom, but what he did do is adapted the fireploom to his elemental affinity. Fence the reason he has a dark Phenix which is a dual elemental affinity (witch by most of my wuxia knowledge makes him more powerful then single affinity techniques. And the part that the darkness element almost always has the “devouring” thing + corrosion as rules in it.)
      As for the multilimb strength boost look at it like the fire ploom only he probably just got the rank 1 and 2 version with missing parts. So he just made a boost type ability. Something like a buff or short enchantment.

      The wing of the sun can only be used as a reference for techniques up to do 6th rank since Leylin is a Kemoyin warlock and once one takes a bloodline it is there until they die.(wonder what happens to rank 4 warlock,… No actually to any point mass soul in the astral realm. Hmmm something to think about.)

      And now my thoughts on your theory’s:
      1. Possible but to make his bloodline evolve he will probably have to use this method: make mini and when I say mini I men really small changes to his body and bloodline witch should take a long time unless he gets the star fish he ate to remodel his heart. And repeat.

      2.hmmm interesting o_o?

      3. (After thinking too much he went insane) Hahahaaaaaa a two headed snake it’s a clone hahahah so many heads AAAAAA.

      4. A little wishful thinking by my taste. Well the Lamia memory did try to control him but the extreme purification to his blood made him resist and even stumt the Lamia memory, there he even though that he had maybe unintentionally weekend the shackles when he was purifying the blood before he became a Warlock. It was mikroscopic purification. Lucky mother f***er.

      Also the guy who said he read on a forum it says NO SPOILERS at the top. Not only that I read a forum about coiling dragon ,Leylin was gonna massacre some clans , and you know what , it never happened uhuhhhuhuhuh(cries) I was so looking forward to it but no massacre no thousends of people screming for merci. Just some all might ass wipe coming and saying “go home everyone nothing to see here”, ” go on get”. Ahahaha (10 minutes of crieing) that all.

      Thanks for the chapter!!!

  2. 1. He’s already evolved his bloodline with the Fireplume, although that isn’t a bloodline, it still evolved his in a way.

    2. It’s been mentioned that ancient Magus tried combining bloodlines but there hasn’t been any evidence of it succeeding. With the A.I. Chip, Leylin will most likely succeed. It’d be kind of bad story telling to introduce this bloodline mixing yet even the MC can’t accomplish it.

    3. He already knows how to get rid of his bloodline shackles from when he spoke to the Wisdom Tree.

    4. Wing of the Sun would make him stop at rank 6 – Breaking Dawn. I highly doubt Sun Child + Kemoyin’s Eye = no bloodline shackles at all. Since Sun Child would be stronger, his potential would go from rank 4 to rank 6. Then he’d have to fuse with something higher.

    1. About #2, I rather doubt that even the A.I. Chip could succeed if it weren’t for the Wisdom Tree’s information. After all, the A.I. Chip’s analysis can be easily obstructed by the lack of information on a particular subject matter—which is precisely why Leylin’s “status” still has no value for Soul Power.

      Also, it would be bad story telling only if the introduced concept played no role in the story, and it has already played plenty. At this point, it no longer quite matters whether our MC manages to transcend the Rank 4 limit by merging bloodlines, another method entirely, or anything in between; the only thing that matters is that our MC can progress and meet the challenge of the recently introduced threat of a higher level.

  3. There will be no pack of chapters just 3 chaps per day, and a poll for backers on patreon,and if they chose to have a batch of chapters then and only then we could get a pack 🙂

  4. Darkness affinity = Kemoyin
    Fire Affinity = Sun’s Child
    Mutated Fireplume technique = The bridge between the two bloodlines
    I think because he’s increased his soul force so much, that it has expanded, leaving more room for another bloodline to enter his soul. A sun’s child maybe… after all the wisdom tree directly gave him information to break his bloodline shackles, which is in line with his AI chip.

  5. Only Rank 6 o.0
    Dear Friends, many thanks to the Author, Translator(s), (Editors), (Donors) for the awesome chapter! With lots of love, Jack
