Chapter Three Hundred and Six – Spells Entering Formation
Zuo Mo’s cheeks ballooned, his eyes were round like a toad expanding its cheeks, and blew out heavily!
A red thread of fire emerged from his mouth!
Countless small flames landed like raindrops in the sword formation.
The light from the sword formation exploded, countless red sparks floating in the middle. Inside the sharp murderous intent was an explosive energy.
At the same time, Zuo Mo’s hands flipped and the [Little Art of Cloud and Rain] formed. The glowing rain silently entered the sword formation. Innumerable clear droplets floated inside the formation. The water and fire were clearly divided and extremely pretty to look at. However, no one was attracted by its beauty. The dangerous presence exuded by the water and fire sword formation made everyone’s hearts speed up.
“Pu, look, isn’t this it?” Zuo Mo smugly showed off.
This was the method he thought of.
After Zuo Mo had read through more than one hundred jade scrolls, he found that while the quality of each was good, there wasn’t a spell that made peaked his interest. At this moment, he suddenly found that he had become pickier without previously noticing it.
However, he suddenly discovered that even though these spells and sword scriptures were not outstanding, they were at least varied. Each jade scroll had its own unique qualities. He had a daring idea. Could he merge all of these spells together?
Consequently, he thought of formations.
Different sword energies and spells contained an abundance of changes, and thus they were perfect for formations.
It was extremely difficult to use different sword energies and spells to create a formation.
When this idea jumped out, he knew it was possible! However, he didn’t speak of it. He really desired the six transformations of the Great Day mo physique from the bottom of his heart, especially when he heard Pu Yao say that it could match a jindan xiuzhe. He forcibly stopped the impulse to make a deal, and spent a whole month to sort through every detail that he could think of before he set the trap for Pu Yao.
Zuo Mo’s face was very smug but his heart was beating rapidly inside. Only when he finished setting up the formation did the stone in his heart land on the ground.
Dearie, he should not frequently do things like this in the future, that was too intense for ge!
“How … … how is it possible … …”
When Zuo Mo saw Pu Yao’s dumbstruck expression, all of the nervousness flew away, and his body felt unspeakably comfortable!
“Divine Summoning Art!” Pu Yao’s eyes widened greatly as he stared in disbelief at Zuo Mo.
“Divine Summoning Art? What is that?” Zuo Mo was confused.
Pu Yao had a death stare locked on Zuo Mo. His gaze was so strange that Zuo Mo felt his hairs stand up.
“Pu, I have no interest in yao … …”
Pu Yao’s eyes were tightly fixed on Zuo Mo and he did not speak.
After a while, Zuo Mo really could not suppress himself. “Pu, you can’t go back on your word!” His finger motions instantly changed. “Look, I used [Bright Light Spell] as the foundation, then [Black Fire Spell] and [Ling Wood Spell] so that the wood element would create fire. Then I used the [Black Daze Spell] as the connection to create the presence of the Fire-Tailed tiger, which is highly offensive and vicious!”
In front of him, a formation that seemed like a ferocious tiger took form. A thread of fire tail was waving in the air, cold and murderous.
Gao Jian Ting who saw this, couldn’t stop herself from inhaling sharply. With a few flicks of the youth’s finger, all kinds of spells fell like rain, and the formation took form almost in the blink of an eye.
What finger method was this?
With her cultivation and keen eyes, she could clearly see every step Zuo Mo made, but when all the movements were connected together, she could not understand it. However, the high spirited and vicious presence of this Fire-Tailed tiger formation rushed at her face.
She had never heard of such a fantastical method.
In her eyes, the youth sitting on the boat suddenly became deep and mysterious. Was it the disciple of some big sect out on a right of passage? This was her only rational guess.
The highest-ranking commanders of the other factions also had heavy expression at this time.
Zuo Mo’s move really was astounding and exquisite, stunning the entire place.
Even though they didn’t know why this youth would show this to everyone, but the factions couldn’t help but start to mutter.
“Why do you know Divine Summoning Art?” Pu Yao stared at Zuo Mo and bit out his words one by one.
“What is Divine Summoning Art?” Zuo Mo asked curiously.
Pu Yao stared at Zuo Mo for a long time before opening. “Then how are you controlling these spells?”
“Spiritual power!” Zuo Mo looked strangely at Pu Yao. “Of course it is spiritual power. This is very easy! Look.”
He flicked with a finger and a thread of fire flew before him. Without any visible action from him, the thread of fire seemed to be pulled by an invisible force to spin around Zuo Mo.
“You don’t know how?” Zuo Mo felt it was even more strange. “No way! Shouldn’t a finger method as easy as this be something that all yao cultivate?”
“How many threads can you control in total?” Pu Yao did not answer but asked in response.
“A lot!” Without another word, Zuo Mo’s finger flicked continuously. Threads of fire floated in the air. In a short moment, more than one hundred flames were floating around him. Zuo Mo’s consciousness moved, and controlled these flames to perform all kinds of moves.
“Alright! I will give you the six transformations to the Great Day mo physique tomorrow!” Pu Yao said decisively.
Zuo Mo instantly had a smile. Pu Yao might have the track record of a con artist, but when he promised something he never went back on his word.
“You should first resolve what is happening right now,” Pu Yao then said.
Zuo Mo stilled. Pu Yao’s tone actually became slightly friendly. This made feel very unaccustomed. Illusion, this definitely was an illusion!
As he warned himself not to forget, he started to examine what was in front of him.
When he looked, his body shook.
What situation was this … …
The surroundings were deathly silent and every person was looking at him. Even if the skin on Zuo Mo’s face was thick, he still felt his scalp prickle. Had he been embarrassing himself in front of so many people just now?
It was over, over!
He wailed inside. However, the skin on his face was truly thick, and he quickly composed himself.
Zuo Mo calmly asked, “Um, what’s going on?”
When Xie Shan, Ma Fan, and the others heard this, they almost dropped from the sky. They stared at each other. Boss had made such a fuss, and now he was asking them what was happening?
Gongsun Cha’s expression did not change. He coughed lightly, and said to Zong Ru beside him “Oh, the wind outside is strong, I’m going in to rest.”
He then left for the cabin. Zong Ru reached out a hand in bewilderment. There was no wind.
Seeing no one answer after a while, anger sprouted from Zuo Mo’s embarrassment. He pointed at Ma Fan, “You, speak!”
Ma Fan felt very unlucky. He could hear the muffled laughs of Xie Shan, Lei Peng and the others beside him, but he forced himself to fly next to Zuo Mo. “Boss, this, look … …”
He pointed at the Sky Water Jie xiuzhe in the sky.
Zuo Mo followed Ma Fan’s finger and gazed at the Sky Water Jie xiuzhe opposite them. After tilting his head and thinking for a while, he said, “They are not letting us go across?”
When these words came out, all the Little Mountain Jie xiuzhe uncontrollably tightened their grip on their talismans, their gazes became vicious.
Gao Jian Ting and the other’s had extraordinary hearing. When they heard Zuo Mo’s words, their hearts jumped suddenly. If they had been just wary of the number of the Little Mountain Jie xiuzhe before, after seeing Zuo Mo’s uncanny formation, they were even more wary of his origins.
The instinctive movements of the other’s xiuzhe subordinates made their hearts tighten when they saw it.
They knew that it was not good but if they spoke and showed weakness now, they felt they would lose face.
At this time, Rong Wei inserted, “City Master, don’t be angry. Everyone must not have known that City Master and your procession would be arriving, and have overreacted. City Master, please allow this one to go forward to speak.”
Rong Wei was very nervous. She had seen the battle of Golden Crow City. Zuo Mo didn’t even respect Clear Sky Old Forefather. If these people infuriated him, this place would flow with blood today.
Having managed to escape from Little Mountain Jie after a struggle, Zuo Mo was slightly discontent at being blockaded at the Sky Water Jie entrance.
He had led this group of people and survived for so long in Little Mountain Jie, and a killing energy had settled on his body. However, he didn’t want to enter a conflict with the local factions just as he entered Sky Water Jie. He said to Rong Wei, “Then we will trouble Miss Rong!”
Rong Wei hurriedly flew towards the people of Sky Water Jie.
Normal xiuzhe might not know of Rong Wei of the House of the Crow Marquis, but the leaders of the eight factions recognized her. After Rong Wei went over and quietly spoke with them, the Sky Water Jie xiuzhe in front of Zuo Mo retreated.
Zuo Mo was slightly shocked. It seemed this House of the Crow Marquis wasn’t simple!
Thinking about how the House of the Crow Marquis was investigating the Stars in Daytime, Zuo Mo was very irritated. It wasn’t a good feeling that he was being targeted by a force that had a powerful background.
Rong Wei came back and smiled. “It is done!”
Zuo Mo had to give his thanks again. The five slave transporting boats slowly started and took the vast group of xiuhe into Sky Water Jie.
Gao Jian Ting gazed at this enormous troop, worry rising in her heart. She could only hope now that these five slave transporting boats were not spoils of war from a direct conflict.
No, she had to report this to the sect leader immediately!
She didn’t dare to procrastinate and took out a paper crane. After she finished writing, she channeled ling power into the crane and watched as it disappeared into the sky.
At the same time, hundreds of paper cranes flew into the sky and disappeared.
As they entered Sky Water Jie, Zuo Mo’s emotions totally relaxed. At evening, they reached the first major city of Sky Water Jie, Guang Heng City. When such a large number of xiuzhe appeared in the horizon, they created terror in the local xiuzhe.
Fortunately, Rong Wei came out at the appropriate time to comfort them, and dissipate their panic.
Seeing the situation, Zuo Mo established camp at a mountain peak outside the city.
There were no gatherings in the world that did not end. Many xiuzhe came at this time to Zuo Mo to give their farewells. Zuo Mo did not urge them to remain and gave them his good wishes. The sky filled with sword lights like rain that disappeared into the sky.
Their individual power was undoubted after being able to survive in Little Mountain Jie. They would have good lives in Sky Water Jie.
After some thought, Zuo Mo gathered everyone together, and took the jinzhi off their bodies. He looked with emotion at them, and suddenly felt a bit proud.
“Truthfully, I had no choice but to put jinzhi in everyone in the past. Fortunately, we have escaped Little Mountain Jie. Starting from today, everyone is free, you can go wherever you want! Everyone can go get five pieces of fourth-grade jingshi from Old Bao.”
The people shifted slightly, but all of them were silent. No one moved.
Zuo Mo saw that no one moved, and felt irritated. He waved his hand. “I’m letting you go, so go!”
Finishing, he turned and left.
It was night, and the moonlight was like water.
Translator Ramblings: Zuo Mo astonishes Pu Yao through formations and five element spells. Zuo Mo and the people of Sky Water Jie are not off to a good start. Mass influx of refugees and a show of great power. I like how Rong Wei is trying to prevent bloodshed and is actually afraid of Zuo Mo. Also, five pieces of fourth-grade jingshi! I actually think Zuo Mo is way too generous this time but he did enslave them and force them to fight so reparations it is.

Back on top it seems. Just needed a little motivation 😛
you don’t need to “Provoke” lunixez any more he was doing just fine on his own.
As a comment to the small strange community of commenters/ the hosts. We seem to have a strange relationship between amongst one another. This phenomenon is seen on few if any translation/webnovel sites.
It starts with the ramblings (provoking) the reader to respond but then the responses that come back from the team make me come back to the page just to read the comments.
I mean really half the fun of this particular novel is reading the responses after the chapter.
The ramblings is like a announcer asking the universal peanut gallery for it’s 2cents and suddenly amazing humor appears where one would normally see none.
In short thank you for your great work and time you spend reading through and responding to comments it creates incentive for us readers to comment and come back to the page time and again.
Great job and keep up the good work.
Pssst, wyhcwe I think we have been found out.
Thanks for the chapter.
Thanks for the chapter!
that made peaked his interest.
that made piqued* his interest.
Uh.. what’s going on?
I like Zou Mo but sometimes he does the strangest things. Praise the author for stationing a negotiator in with them.
I personally like how Gongsun Cha basically went “Ah, too much stress to deal with this” and basically ditched the problem.
Thanks for the chapter!
Well that was so anticlimatic. I was hoping for something big when I saw “Divine Summoning Art”. Like accidentally launching some massive attack into the sky as he show off his new skill…
there wasn’t a spell that made peaked his interest
that made peaked -> that piqued
*cough*…. ( v_v);;
I wonder if he’s so generous both because he got the Mo things that he wanted, and was ’embarrassed’ in front of them earlier.
He’ll have to give out a lot to the others who were there as well then
Do you mean the fourth grade jinshi? That was simply a representation of his gratitude for their work and an apology for forcing it on them.
He’s not generous, he’s stingy.
5 pcs 3rd grade jingshi for 700 xiu daily, that’s 3500.
Ge will go bankrupt if you guys keep following ge!
Yeah, but fourth grade jingshi is line a thousand third grade iirc, meaning he’s giving them several years worth as a severance package.
Hee hee, you are right!
Do we have any idea how long they were in little mountain for? Also, they DID give all their spoils to ZM and didn’t keep them for themselves so he’s really just redistributing their spoils back to them.
I wonder how many people he included in the 5 jingshi though. How many people he actually put jinzhi on.
Also, he’s rich from mining with team Pagoda Fire so the jingshi’s probably nothing to him.
Lastly, I wonder if the stuff he spent on the Guard Camp added up to more then 5 4-jinshi per person.
Oh, it’s five pieces per person, I don’t think it’s five pieces total
I wonder if they’ll just stick around without saying anything, or if they’ll actually confront him and tell him clearly that they want to follow him.
That is going to be fun to watch.
Zou Mo’s reaction to them staying is going to be fun.
Impossibru, Divine Summoning Art!?!?! How could it be!
Thanks for the chapter!
“Pu, I have no interest in yao … …” … aaaaand now I have to clean my monitor, remember guys, don’t drink and read this at the same time xD
Thanks for the chapter!
… add “i”?
Lol he’s actually trekking then to leave. Dense MC is always funny to see.
Hey what happened to the beast-raising (loving) shidi who gave the butterflies to Zuo Mo? I never heard a peep about him.
He is raising his pets and does not gives a fuck about the city bying destroied kek.
Too bad Gao Jian Ting, those ships are ZUO MO’s loot.
You’ll never get them back in low price.
So, another war again I guess? Let’s hope not. The war thing will get boring if it’s over-used continuously.
I dont think there will be another war so soon. there should be a ‘peaceful’ arc before the next war. My bet is it will be an arc about how Zou Mo is FORCED to create a sect by all those followers XD ( you create this, now take care of it! XD)
What is “peaceful?” Do you mean Desolate Wood Reef levels of combat or newbie ling farmer Zuo Mo level of combat?
Peaceful as in focus on training, not fighting
Hm, it won’t be this arc but there will be a training arc.
“But we dont want to go!”
Thanks for the translation!
if anything, it was them that benefited the most out of this, without Zuo Mo, they woulda all died to clear sky eventually, plus he gave them great training(his general did anyways).
Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)
lol.. ZM got reverse conned into teaching Pu.. well that or Pu honestly impressed by ZM..
I like how the author is taking jindan down a few pegs with every new chapter. Those who read the comments section every day should know that I’ve always said jindan shouldn’t be such a big deal. The battle at GC City proved it, and Zuo Mo’s analysis after the battle put it in clear terms. The attitude of the lady jindan of HF Alliance only confirms the evidence — she’s very scared of this troop of highly skilled ningmai.
As per Zuo Mo’s evaluation, jindan have good sword energy and can kill a ningmai with one strike. Only one ningmai — if they want to kill another ningmai, they need a second sword strike. Also, jindan defense is strong, they can take a sword energy attack from a ningmai and receive only a little damage. However, if dozens of ningmai hit a jindan at the same time, they will deal huge damage and probably disable or kill him. Meaning that, if they fight Irish style (a blow for a blow), a hundred ningmai can defeat a jindan in two seconds. It goes like this: first, the jindan strikes, and kills one ningmai; then, the 99 ningmai strike, and make pulp of the jindan. From the beginning, Pu Yao was right with his estimation.
Of course, the problem is speed: in a real fight, not an Irish bout, jindan would display their full speed and move so fast as to be untouchable. However, this can be countered with tactics. Pu Yao said an elite force of 100 ningmai, after years of training under a good battle general, is enough to kill any jindan. Zuo Mo doesn’t have 100 ningmai with years of training under a good battle general, but he has 700 ningmai with nearly a year of training under a good battle general. The way he reckons it, Vermillion Bird troop could have killed Old Forefather just by themselves. That’s a very realistic conclusion. And the HF Alliance jindan obviously understands it, too: no wonder she is scared of Zuo Mo’s army.
This is a super-through analysis. I think you got all the points!
The thing is, a jindan can always escape if they don’t like how a situation is developing unless they are held down by traps like Zuo Mo did to the Clear Sky Sect Forefather. A jindan doesn’t have to fight in the light. A lone jindan in the shadows that embraces guerrilla-style tactics represent a constant threat, even to an organized fighting force like the one Zuo Mo commands.
I view your analysis in a different light. It’s not “jindan” specifically being taken down a few pegs it’s individual powers versus gestalt forces. Also, the analysis of Vermillion BIrd camp being able to kill the jindan is also 20/20 hindsight. Chicken and egg. Do they have to have experience fighting jindan before they can kill a jindan? Furthermore, even after gaining experience when we say Vermillion Bird camp could have killed the jindan what price would they have had to pay.
I think you’ve missed the point of my comment. Even though we now know that jindan are not invincible in battle, that is only in the traditional sense of a face to face confrontation; an organized force can be more powerful than unorganized individuals. However, there is still a place for individual power. Zuo Mo made sure that all the conditions for battle outside the Golden Crow City was favorable to himself; all his forces were concentrated defending the city, the forefather’s movement was limited, he had the element of surprise, etc. What happens when the Vermilion Bird Camp are split up like when they go on patrols and a jindan attacks these smaller groups? What happens if the jindan just performs hit and run tactics, or that his goal is just to assassinate one particular person instead of eliminating Zuo Mo’s entire group? There are plenty of situations that would be favorable to a jindan.
Ah, my comment was in response to mjp not you pennamemoe. Hit the wrong “reply” button I guess.
Ah videriant = 77allenpoe, different computer.
Ah, videriant = 77allenpoe, diffierent computer.
Thanks for the chapter!
Thanks for the chapter…
“Was it the disciple of some big sect out on a right of passage?” Should be “Was it the disciple of some big sect out on a rite of passage?” Instead, Right?
The shame! ( v_v);;
Sooo, I’m thinking there’s some yao clan with the divine summoning art they use as their “inherent ability” and they keep it closely guarded. And Zuo Mo just uses finger motions to control threads of energy to do the same thing, which mean that yao clan just conned everyone. And Pu was dumbfounded. At least, that’s how these things generally go, but who knows with Fang Xiang, that’s part of the appeal!
Thank you so much!! 😘😘😘
The divine art is probably some sort of skill when you reach a higher stage of “Yao” cultivation from the looks of it probably a jindan like stage of xiuzhe or Great Day Mo physics.
Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE, WanderingGummiOfDoom, and warlord212!
Thanks for the new chapter!
Thanks for the chapter,
Good thing it didn’t blow up this time,
Reactions and short comments from this chapter were golden.
He’ll be so perplexed when they are still all there tomorrow, and he have to figure out a practical way to feed them
Since he took back the jinzhi from everyone his consciousness should have strengthened right?
ahahahahahaha paper crane 😀
thx for the chapter
I don’t think anyone is going. Well, at least i hope this band will stay together. That damn sect that kicked zuo mo and co will look so small compared to this later on i hope.
Thank you for the chapter!
my friends and I want to do a our version of translations for WOC. is that fine?
Are you talking about another English version or to translate my translation into another language?
Please do as you wish. My hope is that you can find something else to translate like another of Fang Xiang’s previous works if you like his novels, mainly because if you do, it might seriously demotivate me if you start.
How about me fixing up a few lost in translation issues in your chapters and send it back to you?
Sure. It would be wonderful if you could do that. If they are minor, you can just post the edits in a comment. Otherwise, email me at email@example.com and then comment so I will know to look in my inbox.
I really enjoyed the characterization of people in the army, like Xie Shan, Ma Fan,and Dong Ru.
I’m looking forward to seeing what happens with them from here! This also feels like a really weird phase in the arc: Zuo Mo is powering up like crazy compared to the beginning, and then each time he powers up he immediately uses his new abilities.
Hm, I wonder why Pu Yao said the next Mo stage was equivalent to ningmai, and now is saying that people in that stage eat Jindan cores. I guess the stages really don’t quite match up.
It’s weird but the number of levels aren’t the same for each species. Actually, I think my cultivation terms page makes stuff slightly misleading because you see the levels before they are introduced in context. What Pu Yao means is that on average, the mo level is equivalent to ningmai, but Zuo Mo has the second-ranked physique which is more powerful.
Thanks for the chapter!
thanks for the chaptetr!
much thanks for the chapter ^^
why pay them so much…. you saved EVERYONES fucking asses, AND gave them tremondous good fortune in training and training resources.
Okay so he understands how powerfull Pu and the gravestones techniques are, but he was faking and tricked them (me too D: ). I hope he will make it clear to everyone that he is a raoming xiu that has achived what he has on his own and a product of some sect nurturing.
Super interesting. If he doesn’t become the ultimate Formations expert I will eat my computer. One piece of mircoplastic at a time.
Strange typo/grammar error:
“there wasn’t a spell that made peaked his interest”
Should be “there wasn’t a spell that piqued his interest”
I was waiting for this! I knew he would release the jinzhi! :’D
Haha he acted like he was freeing the wild beast he just tamed.
The wild beast end up following tho. They just need some love (jingshi) 😃
On the other hand, his taken talent in five element spell is really strong. Maybe that’s why he was ‘banished’ with only the bead accompanying him
Thanks for the chapter!🍀
Divine summoning art seems pretty much like a difficult thing to do, I wonder what are the depths of it
