Chapter 118 – Fooling the enemy!

The City Lord’s Mansion was thrown into complete chaos.

Weapons colliding

Right now, where Nie Li was previously living, several figures suddenly appeared. These are the black clothed experts that have already merged with their demon spirits.

“Have you found that kid?”

“No, we can’t find him!”

“Damn it! Where did that kid go? Could it be that Ye Zong arranged to have him in another area?” One of the guys said, puzzled.

“No idea. But no matter what, we must find him! Even if Ye Zong and that bunch take action, they’ll need at least several hours to kill the Abyss Demon. After all, it was summoned from exhausting a piece of the Stone of Kong Ming. This Stone of Kong Ming must not be wasted!” The leading Black Fox snorted and said, “We’ll split up and look for him!”

Woosh! woosh! woosh!

One after another flew off in different directions. These seven people are all Black Gold rank experts. They can avoid the guards of the City Lord’s Mansion easily. Adding to the fact that the City Lord’s Mansion is thrown into chaos, all of the experts that reside in the City Lord’s Mansion were gathered towards the southern area, with no one taking note of them.

Nie Li is moving within the darkness. He was already thousands of meters away from his previous location. He could feel several auras from far away, all of them were at least Black Gold rank.

Those people from the Dark Guild have indeed, come for him. They were actually willing to pay a huge price and cause such a huge commotion just to capture him!

With Nie Li’s current strength, he’s not a challenge for a Black Gold rank Demon Spiritualist. He has to lure them over to the Tai Yi Killing Array, only then can he kill one or two Black Gold rank experts. The problem is how is he supposed to achieve that? Once he is discovered by those Black Gold rank Demon Spiritualists, he won’t be able to outrun them, he’ll be killed!

Boom! Boom! Boom!

A few hundred meters from Nie Li, a battle broke out.

A Black Gold rank Demon Spiritualist and three Black Gold rank Fighters of the City Lord’s Mansion discovered an invader. They immediately launched attacks, trying to kill him.

That black clothed Demon Spiritualist did not show any weaknesses. He was controlling the Snow Wind Corpse Worm to devour the surrounding cold moisture and pounded towards a Black Gold rank Fighter.

Woosh! Woosh! Woosh!

A countless amount of ice hailed down like a rain of arrows, bombarding towards that Black Gold rank Fighter.

“Audacious! You actually dared to act wildly in our City Lord’s Mansion?! Today, you can dream on leaving this place!” The Black Gold rank Demon Spiritualist coldly snorted, his body expanded and transformed into a giant Blood Alligator. His body was covered with terrifying spikes; those sharp fangs of his would cause anyone to tremble just from the looks of it.

That huge body headed towards the attack.

Boom! Boom! Boom!

All of the icicles fell onto the Blood Alligator’s body and exploded into dust.

“He’s got a Blood Alligator!”

The black clothed man that transformed into the Snow Wind Corpse Worm was shocked. It’s really a Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon within the City Lord’s Mansion. There’s someone that had actually integrated with a Blood Alligator demon spirit.

The Blood Alligator’s huge tail whipped towards the Snow Wind Corpse Worm. That whistling huge tail split the air, releasing bolts of lightning. That frightening soul force swept out, causing everyone in the area to suffocate from the pressure.


Such frightening strength! The opponent is at least a 3-star Black Gold rank expert!

When one reaches Black Gold rank, it becomes harder to cultivate to a higher level. If an ordinary person reaches 1-star or 2-star Black Gold rank, he is already considered very strong. It’s extremely rare for someone to reach 3-star Black Gold rank. After all, the higher they go, the harder it becomes. Only a few have managed to reach 5-star Black Gold rank.

The guy that integrated with the Snow Wind Corpse Worm is only a 1-star Black Gold rank.

Feeling that frightening power roaring towards him, the black clothed person wasn’t able to resist at all. Suddenly, the Snow Wind Corpse Worm was acting strangely. It broke into two and ran towards two different directions.


When the Blood Alligator’s huge tail smashed the ground, a huge impact sound was created. The ground that was hit made a huge crater with a radius of several meters, and caused the small stones to splash around.

“Ice Separating? You’re thinking of fooling me with this method?” That demon spiritualist that had integrated with the Blood Alligator furiously snorted, waved his hands and headed towards one of the Snow Wind Corpse Worm’s halves. At the same time, his fists were ignited with Blood Flames.

The Blood Flames were emitting a blazing heat that intimidated the others.

When the Blood Alligator’s huge palm was about to land on that Snow Wind Corpse Worm, a black shadow suddenly flashed. That cold sharpness cut through the sky.

“Lord Gong Liangshu, be careful!”

One of the Black Gold rank Fighters that felt the danger firsthand, coldly snorted and sprang towards the black figure.

“A 1-star Black Gold rank Fighter dares to obstruct me?!” That black shadow snorted. *Psh* A set of sharp claws slashed across a ray of cold light on the Black Gold rank Fighter’s neck.

Fresh blood was spurting!

“Damn it!”

When he saw that his allies were killed, the Demon Spiritualist that integrated with the Blood Alligator roared in anger and grief, and hastily turned around and threw a palm towards the black figure.


Both sides collided, explosions were made. It was as though lightning had struck the ground.

The Demon Spiritualist that integrated with the Blood Alligator backstepped. His qi and blood were in a mess. As for the black figure, he rolled, turned into a black light and flew away.

A faint voice echoed from far away, “Gong Liangshu, your reputation precedes you. Pardon me for being unable to keep you company. We’ll fight again next time, if there’s an opportunity!”

Gong Liangshu calmed his qi and blood. He looked at the place where the black figure disappeared from. His eyes flashed with a faint shock. The black figure from earlier, had strength equal to his! While he was being hindered by the black figure, the Demon Spiritualist that had integrated with a Snow Wind Corpse Worm was nowhere to be seen.

“A Black Fox demon spirit! I wonder where he’s from.”

Gong Liangshu’s strength is within the top ten in City Lord’s Mansion. However, he has never seen any expert that integrated with a Black Fox before. Taking a glance at his allies in the pools of blood, Gong Liangshu’s eyes were filled with bloodshot and solemnly said, “No matter where you run to, I, Gong Liangshu will not give up until you die!”


Woosh! Woosh! Woosh!

The several people chased after the intruders.

If the City Lord’s Mansion hadn’t dispatched a large number of the Black Gold rank Demon Spiritualists outside of Glory City to perform some tasks, causing the City Lord’s Mansion to be empty, how would those people able to come and go freely of the City Lord’s Mansion?

Seeing this scene, Nie Li’s heart couldn’t help feeling heavy. Another Black Gold rank Demon Spiritualist died under the hands of the Dark Guild. However, with their current strength, it’s absolutely impossible to chase after those guys.

This kind of matter has happened way too much before. In his previous life, when the demon beasts attacked the city, Nie Li saw with his own eyes countless experts dying in battle. Including this Gong Liangshu in front of him.

Because of him, history has changed a little. The Dark Guild doesn’t care about the cost and attacked the City Lord’s Mansion.

Suddenly, Nie Li felt an aura getting closer to him. His heart was slightly chilled. Sure enough, he was discovered by someone.

“Gagaga, little doll, I finally found you!”

A black figure appeared from the trees with a woosh. It’s the black clothed man that integrated with the Meerkat. His movements were light, his voice was very soft, making it hard for others to notice his presence.

After all, this is the City Lord’s Mansion. Even if it’s a Black Gold rank Demon Spiritualist, they have to be extremely careful.

Just when he’s about to lay hands on Nie Li, Nie Li suddenly shouted, “City Lord, You’re here! They ran towards that direction!”

Thereafter, with a woosh, Nie Li turned into a black shadow and madly ran.

The black clothed person that integrated with a Meerkat was slightly stunned. Ye Zong? Where?

Although he’s already a 2-star Black Gold rank Demon Spiritualist, if he encounters Ye Zong, there’ll definitely be no way he’ll be able to returning. One must know that Ye Zong is the strongest existence under Legend rank, a 5-star Black Gold rank and a step from entering Legend rank.

He looked around in bewilderment; however, he couldn’t even catch a glimpse of Ye Zong’s shadow.

“Damn, I was fooled!” He couldn’t help swearing. He thought by sneaking closer towards Nie Li, Nie Li wouldn’t notice his presence. He never imagined that this kid had such sharp perception. Furthermore, he’s so cunning to use Ye Zong to fool him.

In this stunned moment, Nie Li already ran far away.

“You want to escape from me? Fat chance!” He coldly snorted, leaping towards the direction that Nie Li ran to.

Woosh, he became a blur.

Aside from hiding, the Shadow Devil demon spirit is also good at speed. Although it’s speed couldn’t exceed a Black Gold rank Demon Spiritualist, it won’t be an easy task for the guy to catch up to him.

Nie Li madly ran towards the direction of the Tai Yi Killing Array. Only by using the Tai Yi Killing Array, can he kill a Black Gold rank expert!

In the process of running, Nie Li took a glance towards the south side of the City Lord’s Mansion. The Abyss Demon that is wielding a giant flaming sword, wreaking havoc and furiously roaring, was getting closer to the Divine Thunder Killing Array.

“The Dark Guild is really willing to pay the price to actually summon the Abyss Demon. I fear that even if the Divine Thunder Killing Array is used, it could only trap it at best. To kill that Abyss Demon requires some extraordinary methods!”

Countless ideas flashed in Nie Li’s mind. Although he had some good ones, wanting to put them into action is still difficult. After all, there’s still a Black Gold rank Demon Spiritualist chasing him.

The soul force needed to summon the Abyss Demon is extremely frightening. It’s enough to cause six Black Gold rank Demon Spiritualists to die from soul force exhaustion. Unless some powerful item was used as a medium. Looks like in order to catch him, the Dark Guild has paid a great price.

Just his talent alone wouldn’t lure the attention of the Dark Guild. After all, even with how extraordinary his talent is, it’s impossible to be any threat to the Dark Guild for at least the next one or two years. The Dark Guild can use that time to slowly plan. There’s no need to take such a huge risk to attack the City Lord’s Mansion.

Unless, the Dark Guild is aware that all of those elixir formulas that the Alchemist Association has were provided by him! After all, paper will never be able to hold down the fire. Such a big matter, it’s impossible for the Dark Guild to not investigate about it. Even with some clues, this can be speculated.

This way, everything can be explained.

‘Although my strength is only 5-star Silver rank, since you guys want to play, then we’ll see who can play better!’ Nie Li thought within his heart. With his strength, he’s not an opponent for the Dark Guild; but with Nie Li’s self-protecting technique, it won’t be easy for the Dark Guild to kill him!

    1. Yeah, his just dragging the story out with the silly City Lord drama.
      Heck, even the guy going adventuring in ruins would be more interesting, and then he could have encountered the Dark Guild there.

      The author probably realized that no one in their right mind would continue reading that drama, so he threw in a random invasion. And we’re already hearing about how useless the arrays are by themselves.
      Oh boy, if only Nie Lie wasn’t being difficult about installing the arrays before, then this probably wouldn’t have happened.

    2. He can get there easily. The author was talking about other people (normals not using complimentary training methods or demons) have difficulty progressing.

      1. Sigh, Dragon I’ve seen many people misunderstand what they were reading and then blame the author of this series for Thier misunderstanding. For example, the comment you just replied to. Good on you for correcting him. Thank you Oh master of TDG, the one and only wandering dragon [Evil Grin].

        1. Uh, excuse you, I didn’t misunderstand anything. If anyone has misunderstood what they read here, it’s you and Wandering Dragon. My comment was out of exasperation about the story stagnating around stupid crap instead of having some form of progress. I phrased it as a question, but that was because I wanted to start a conversation, not because I didn’t know the answer.

          1. Oh you meant you wish the story would hurry up and get to training? Ahh, the first part is very ambiguous. In terms of the other half of your first comment. Maybe it is padding, maybe the author finds it funny and therefore spends longer on it than originally planned.

  1. So the feared dark guilds battle tactic is summon a rampaging demon then fail to sneak across the mansion to where Nie Lie is despite them showing no knowledge of the inner layout of the Mansion and wasting a lot of time by saying they couldn’t find him when they could’ve instead killed Ye Zi Yun and ruined Ye Zong’s mental psyche after he gets over his rage. If they have the typical villain aim training (Stormtrooper academies finest) then i really don’t see why anyone takes these muppets seriously, can a Villain have an Aizen level plan that doesn’t involve morphing into a butterfly? Also make this person someone that comes down and beats the ever living shit out of Nie Lie to teach the prat some modesty. Also to complete what is essentially an assassaintion task no one from the dark guild could sneak in and end his existence? Like you know a professional hitman? i won’t believe anyone that says there isn’t a single black gold spirtualist in all of Glory city with a stealth based spirit that works with the dark guild or hell just threaten the dudes wife and kid or his family in the event of his lack of a wife/children. I’ll bet the battle plan involves swarm tactics

    1. The Dark Guild is here to solve the role of the Monster of the Week, I suppose.
      To be fair, most of the villains in TDG are fairly moronic. From the Sacred Family (their assassins didn’t even have poison pills or something to stop leaking information to the enemy) to the Dark Guild (they exist for the sole purpose of being evil. They’re not trying to rule the city, they just want to destroy it for the evilz).

    2. Think about it, why is Dark Guild evil? What’s the purpose, why would they and Sacred Family want to destroy Glory city??? What is the benefit of that??? None………. The author probably didn’t think much of details, and just claiming that Dark Guild aim is to kill talented individuals before they grow strong to be enemies…

      1. It’s easy to find reason for beeing evil.
        – They want to lead the city themselfs. If they can’t noone can.
        – They want all the secret items in the city for themself. Who knows what kind of items there are. The dark guild leader probably has a site of the book Nie Li found and now he wants more knowing that there is another one in the city.
        – The Dark guild is from the outside which means they may have way more knowledge than the city. Feeling superior and want to destroy the inferior.

        Knowledge is a mighty weapon thats why they are curious about Nie Li.

      2. HOLD ON! just wait there motive hasnt been explained yet thats just your ass umptions, just last chapter the dark guild said something along with working with the beasts. mabey they believe that the beasts are more powerfull and that by working for them they will have a better future, then going down with the to eventually be destroyed city.

        1. That’s dumb, the author is not even trying to give us some hints for the reason…. So from all the dark guild individuals they captured, ect… they couldn’t get any hints on the objective of the Dark guild?? Even if they captured a low ranking person, for what purpose is that person working for the dark guild? Whats the benefit? Why would they go out of their ways to kill talented people??? What’s in it for them?? I feel the story is going to lead to the destruction of the sacred family and Dark guild and stopping their elaborate plan to destroy Glory City with no motive….Also that Sacred Family head never says that he want to take over Glory City, he says he wants to destroy it if i recall correctly…. If they hate Glory city why not just leave?? The author haven’t explained anything, and hes just giving us Black and White villains vs good guy scenario with no background information… Or at least thats how i feel… Unless I am missing something <,<

    3. will you all just shut up and wait for the incoming chapters?. it will progress sooner or later. geez why do you people always assume things on your own a accord are you guys some famous critic or something?.

        1. . sorry for that REN its just making my blood boil with all those people acting high and mighty like they know all about the chapters and whats happening and criticizing about whats good and not for the Story.

          1. and they are right. thats their opinion and they are right in expressing it. the same way you are being rude. its ok to defend your view of the story, but everyone sees things differently and there is no need to be an ass. if you really care you can offer your own opinion on the story and tell them why they are wrong or why you think you are right. it will progress the discussion and everyone will learn a thing or two from each other’s perspective. peace <3

    4. Ummm, you know the summoned demon was just a distraction, right? And the real guys that wanted to sneak to Nie Li’s place did sneak.

      And you know, Nie Li isn’t actually over all as bad for the modesty thing… read all the chapters straight through and he’s actually not too bad. He teases his elders, but he actually was a super big help for them. He messed with the City Lord, but also got him to get rid of stress (and both sides are mutually having a rivalry).

      And Nie Li really is too knowledgeable, so it’s fair for him to be a little arrogant. Towards these people, he used to be at the bottom, now that he’s finally better than them, he wants to show off. That is quite normal.

  2. Thanks for the chapter.

    Why there’s no one guarding Nie Li?
    He’s a genius, top alchemist and the one who can lay the killing array.
    Shouldn’t City Lord’s mansion pay him more attention than this.

    1. His been causing trouble for them for months. I’m not surprised the City Lord wants to get rid of him.
      Perhaps, he’ll get the hint after he goes back in time again.

  3. Typical Nie Li. Instead of actually helping he runs away only caring about himself.
    Nie Li is suppose to be a tactician…
    Running to Ye Xiu with all the others would be the safest and best place for him to be.
    He would be surrounded by gold ranks which would be able to protect him and he would be able to show his tactical abilitys by leading the defence in the most efficient way strengthening his position in the city. Him beeing there would also force the others to attack their defence head on to be able to get to Nie Li which wouldn’t be easy for them and would buy time till Ye Zong arrives.
    But typical loner Nie Lie hasn’t learned how to work together with people in his previous life.

    1. if you think about it . it would put more harm than good if Nie Li came running to Ye Xiu because they’re battling the summoned beast and they’re just leading it in the lightning array, if they have to protect Nie LI too. it would cause all the other dark guild to surround them which will then put them in a situation that’s far worse than leading the demonic summon alone. maybe he will cut down there number first before heading towards Ye Xiu to help. well its only my understanding about what the story is going too. but that’s only my suggestion..

      1. That summoned beast could’ve also be simply used for their advantage, because it attacks friends and enemys the same way. In my opinion running towards the lightning array is the exact same thing with the difference that he is protected by others and would outnumber the enemys with a coordinated defence against their aimless enemys instead of going alone. The lightning array is enough to defeat the enemys, but not enough for the summoned beast. Ye Xiu trusting in the array and not knowing that could bring more casualtys.

        The whole summon the beast thing was only to distract them and to sneak in to get Nie Li which will work as planned with Nie Li beeing all alone. Nie Li seeing through that should be were they don’t want him to be and that is in the middle of all the action.

        1. well yeah its true of what you had stated, but i guess it makes the author abit more cliche if Nie Li just run up to Ye Xui so my estimated guess for the moment is that before going to Ye Xui he wants to cut down first the number of dark guilds member because there’s 2 units. one is the top assassins which will take Nie Li and the other unit is for summoning for distraction. i think that’s why Nie Li prepared going to the array first . Lets just see where this story is going to . i think the author has plans for Nie Li for going alone. 🙂

    2. It isn’t that he doesn’t want to help them (cause while he likes messing with people, he doesn’t actually try causing them real problems). It’s just that the array he set up is the only way he could fight. He’s running away to get his weapon.

      I think you have too bad of an impression of Nie Li. While he likes to mess with people, he does know his limits and he actually does actually help all his allies.

      Right now, he’s going straight to the array to actually fight (so he isn’t running away or only caring about himself).

      The faster he gets to the array, the faster Nie Li could actually help the guys. Taking a detour would only slow him down, and get more people killed.

    3. Distance
      Where Ye Xiu is the complete opposite of where Nie Li is, since it’s just a diversion to kidnapped him. So he went to the closest thing that could protect him which was the array.

      As to why he’s alone, he’s the target and doesn’t want Glory City to lose more high level fighters/Spiritualist. All of which was clearly stated in the past two to three chapters

      1. Do you really think Nie Li cares about the fighters/spiritalists?
        IF he would he could’ve easily gave a lot of people who he trusts better cultivation techniques and strenghten the city so something like that never would happen to begin with. He doesn’t even have to give them the “best” ones like he gave his “friends” , but he easily could give them better ones so the city is better overall. He could’ve made Ye Zong, someone who he knows would protect the city with his life, a legend rank with ease.

        But actually helping would please everyone and there wouldn’t be any unnecessary conflicts to humor everyone.

  4. Thanks for the chapter, Thyaeria, Dogboy90, Anonymous, Seth L & Will L! Dear WuxiaWorld, many thanks to the Author, Translator(s), (Editors), (Donors) for the awesome chapter! With lots of love, Jack ❤

  5. Here I am imagining city lord mansion alone to be as big as a modern city. Just thinking how fast they were running and how long it took them to reach their destination is making me crazy.
