Chapter Three Hundred and Sixty Three – The Prison-Breaking Six

“These are the problems I encountered.” Huai Boy’s mouth felt bitter. He had thought he would become a hero and had unexpectedly ended up with nothing. He had received the heavy blow in a field that he had never thought would cause him trouble. In the next few days, his mind would be quite scattered.

He had memorized the problems, including the unsolved sixth problem.

The other supervisors came over.

“Little yao arts?”

“It is actually little yao arts?”

They all wore shocked expressions. Some people felt it was nothing. How hard could a little yao art problem be? Huai Boy saw the dismissive expressions, but he did not argue.

The noise quickly faded. After a while, everyone started to sweat. No one had a dismissive expression anymore.

In a patch of silence, everyone’s sweat increased.




“This junior’s name is Yi Zheng, a disciple of the Great Buddha Temple,” Yi Zheng rearranged his clothing and respectfully said with a bow. The greeting he gave was one of a junior. The worldly apparition had stunned him. He could clearly feel the difference of the sword xiu’s before and after states.

Was that core formation?

He wasn’t sure, but any breakthrough that was accompanied by a worldly apparition was extraordinary. This was why he had given the bow of a junior even though the other did not look older compared to himself.

Wei Sheng opened his eyes. The ephemeral presence around him suddenly disappeared like it had been brushed away by wind. His eyes became peaceful again like a sharp sword being sheathed so its edges could not be seen.

But after experiencing that soul-shaking scene, Yi Zheng did not dare to slack off and offend. Even more, he glanced at the remnants of the fiend soul beast that had been cut up into multiple pieces, and his heart tightened.

“I am Wei Sheng, from Wu Kong Sword Sect.” Wei Sheng smiled, his attitude warm and peaceful.

“It’s an honor to meet you at last!” Yi Zheng hurriedly said.

Wei Sheng roared with laughter. “Mine is a small sect. You definitely have not heard of it.”

Yi Zheng instantly became a bit embarrassed. He did not know what it was. Even though this Wei Sheng’s attitude was friendly and warm, but he still felt an invisible pressure. It was this invisible pressure that caused him to do some actions that he usually would not.

“You can just call me Wei Sheng.” Wei Sheng waved his hand. “Not Elder, I don’t want to be old so quickly.”

Yi Zheng instantly felt a predicament, but he had a spark of inspiration. “Big Brother Wei!”

Wei Sheng smiled and did not argue. He asked, “How did you come to this place?”

Speaking of this, Yi Zheng’s face instantly became a bitter gourd. “I don’t know either. I took a mission from my sect and assumed that I could earn some contribution points. I didn’t expect to be this unlucky and get sent to this ghastly place. I probably can’t go back.”

Finishing, he sighed.

“You definitely can go back,” Wei Sheng said. His tone was not strong and it was a sentence that was very ordinary; but when Yi Zheng heard it, he actually believed it.

“We will continue walking forward. Before this, I felt a sword essence in this direction.” Wei Sheng did not waste words. Raising the horse-chopping sword, he walked forward. Seeing the situation, Yi Zheng hurriedly followed.

The two hadn’t walked for a long time when Wei Sheng suddenly stopped walking. An excited expression abruptly came onto his face.

“Big Brother Wei, what is it?” Yi Zheng carefully asked.

Wei Sheng did not answer him, his eyes tightly staring at the fiendish mist in front of him. The excitement on his face grew until even his lips started to tremble. “Li Water sword essence… … Li  Water sword essence … … Shidi … …

The familiar Li Water Sword essence was faintly discernable in the fiendish mist ahead of him.

Wei Sheng unhesitatingly threw out the flying sword. Grabbing Yi Zheng, he stepped onto the horse-chopping sword. He currently wanted to to grow wings. Taking a deep breath, he urged the sword with all his power and charge forward.




Qian Liu was staring at the six little yao art problems in front of him. A moment later, he raised his head. “The little guy is a bit interesting.”

The fire-faced person asked in wonder. “Little yao art problems? This guy is really creative! I wonder which great master taught this little yao monster.” He then snickered. “There is good drama to be seen now. Little yao arts, ha, this slap in the face is really hard!”

Qian Liu did not pay attention to the schadenfreude of the fire-faced person and turned his gaze back to the little yao art problems. He was very curious what the remaining six problems were like. If it was said that he had been slightly curious before, then the six little yao art problems had successfully raised his curiosity.

“Little yao arts … …” Qian Liu murmured lowly as he thought inside.

In his memory, there had not been any Sky Yao that had such a style in the past eight hundred years. If one went even further back, then it was the thousand year war. The records from then were very chaotic, and it was the era they had lost the most records on. There were too many yao arts, too many Sky Yao that could not be verified.

“What are you thinking so much for?” the fire-faced person said unconcernedly. “In any case, there is a spectacle to be seen. If you are lucky, maybe you will be able to see the next six problems. Haha, I hope the little brats work hard, so yeye won’t be disappointed!”

Qian Liu helplessly rubbed his forehead. With the fire-person’s rumble, his line of thinking had been interrupted.

However, he agreed with the fire-faced person’s words.

This matter had just started. The good drama hadn’t even come on stage yet.




It was unknown who leaked the information, but the six problems of the Wasteland Beast Chessboard’s prison-breaking battle quickly spread. All the major yao channels were studying these six little yao art problems. When many yao first received these six problems, they were very dismissive. Many yao were even suspicious that these Prison-Breaking Six Problems were fake.

Little yao art problems, what a joke!

But no matter if it was those that were dismissive or curious, what all the yao did when they first received the six problems was strangely similar; they tried to solve them.

They quickly discovered just how laughable and naïve their thinking had been.

At this moment, those spectators that had been so bored outside the prison battlefield finally understood how soul-shaking the seemingly boring prison-breaking battle had been.

Little yao arts were the fundamentals of all yao arts. No yao or school of thought would doubt this. The study of little yao arts had only been of interest in the yao art houses for a few years before their studied was considered complete. It was not that the yao of the time dismissed little yao arts. It was the exact opposite. They put great importance on little yao arts. Due to this, they had put in great amounts of yao-power and ran through all the permutations of little yao arts. From that onwards, there were almost no new developments in little yao arts. Those with knowledge at the time started to put more effort into intermediate yao arts and high yao arts.

The Prison-Breaking Six Problems seemed to be like throwing six heavy stones into a peaceful pond churning the shores with great waves.

The six little yao art problems, put in their order, went from easy to hard. The first three were extremely easy and did not leave the scope of the present little yao arts. But starting from the fourth question, it went beyond the scope of the general understanding of little yao arts.

Truthfully, Huai Boy was very skilled to have been able to reach the sixth problem. With the aid of his firm foundation, even though there were new transformations, he still used his outstanding intelligence and managed to solve the fifth problem.

But up to here, he could not go any further. His head was filled with the sixth problem. He did not eat or rest, and his mind was scattered.

Higher yao, like Qian Liu, could detect a completely new road from these six problems that increased in difficulty, a road that was completely different than what the general understanding of little yao art was now. This discovery made them happy and filled with curiosity. As yao that cultivated to their level, how could their eyes be shallow?

Presently the six little yao art problems were the most popular topic of study for the yao art houses. The teachers of many yao art houses acted, but they quickly all encountered a roadblock. Consequently, many “Little Yao Art Study Teams” came out of every yao art house like spring bamboo after the rain.




Cang Ze stayed in the corner and didn’t dare to breathe. The reason was very simple. The room was too silent! Staring at the tips of his feet, his heart was a storm. This was definitely the most silent meeting of the Council of Elders in the clan’s history.

The elders of great status and power had furrowed brows and did not make any sound.

“What does everyone think?” The one that spoke was the clan leader, Cang Ze’s father. However, even though Cang Ze’s father was the clan leader, but in this room, Cang Ze did not have a place to sit. In fact, if it wasn’t that he had successfully established a dialogue with the master of the Wasteland Beast Chessboard, he wouldn’t even have had the qualifications to enter this room.

“The Genius Alliance will not rest,” an elder said hesitantly. “If we worsen our relations with the Genius Alliance, it won’t be good for us.”

“Everyone knows that, do you need to waste your breath?” an elder that did not have a good temper snorted coldly. “But he knows [Grey Scar Art]”

“That’s what he says, it may not be true.”

The room descended into noise. Those that were shouting, those that had faces red, those that were winding up their sleeves to start fighting. Cang Ze released a breath, and felt much more at ease.

The clan leader really could not bear it anymore and said in a deep voice, “Stop!”

The voices finally calmed. The clan leader turned around his face. “Chief Elder, what do you think?”

“Has everyone seen the six problems?” The Chief Elder opened his eyes, his voice was hoarse.

The elders all nodded.

“What does everyone think of these six problems?” the Chief Elder asked directly.

“Pretty interesting.”



The elders chattered.

The Chief Elder shook his head. He waited for everyone to stop talking before he opened, “In my view, these six questions open a new school of thought within Yao arts.”

When these words came out, the others rumbled. No one had expected the Chief Elder to have such a high opinion of the six little yao art problems, but no one doubted the Chief Elder’s judgement. Because his judgement in countless matters had proved that Chief Elder’s eyes were terrifyingly accurate.

“Do we have any relationship with the Genius Alliance?” the Chief Elder suddenly asked.

“No.” The other elders shook their heads together. They might have some power locally, but for them, the Genius Alliance was high up and unreachable.

“Without a relationship, there is no saying that our relations will worsen,” the Chief Elder said faintly. But his authoritative gaze contained a thread of heat. “Everyone seated here today understands what [Grey Scar Art] means to us. There are no free benefits in this world, so everyone should understand there is no profit without risk.”

The Chief Elder suddenly stood. “Does everyone remember their oaths when they entered the council of elders?”

The other elders were excited and simultaneously stood. “Do not dare to forget!”

“We have waited for this chance,” the Chief Elder looked at the old visages of the other elders and sighed deeply, “waited for too long!”


Translator Ramblings: Wei Sheng is heading towards the sword essence he felt and Zuo Mo is trying to find him from the other end. I know everyone’s sword essence is slightly different in the story but it is supposed to keep developing so I wonder if Zuo Mo managed to recognize the sword essence as Wei Sheng because he hadn’t progressed greatly in his sword essence after the sword test conference.

I’m conflicted about the title. “The Prison-Breaking Six” sounds a lot like a group of prisoners trying to escape … …

  1. Zuo Mo really dropped the bomb with his new Prison, but wait until they discover he is a xuizhe 😀

    1. I totally expect that after the last question is solved, the wasteland beast will just stand up and start punching everyone around by copying Zuo Mo’s mo cultivation. Because he is able to bring his mo stuff into the prisons, which means it might be valid for use in the copy of his style in his version of the prison.

      1. LOL that would be freaking amazing. I could see a Wasteland Beast with the power of a Mo Physique that’s capable of using the five elements. I don’t think he used any Xiuzhe techniques there, so I don’t think the Wasteland Beast would be capable of using Sword Essence though.

  2. Hard to believe the yao/mo lost the war when they seem to share information so widely and quickly

    1. They only did so after the war. Yao were a lot more secretive before but since they lost the knowledge, they decided they had to change in order to survive.

    2. I suppose the great sects likely have a few high cultivation individuals that mostly bulked up in power by eating nukes.

      The xiu’s main advantage is that they can more easily take and then exploit powerful natural resources. That, combined with their high grade understanding of formations (which likely lead to a trap where they lured the powerful sky yao and mo kings into that cauldron that pu yao crawled out of) means they can be nasty to face off against.

  3. I thought it sounded like ‘Prison-Breaking Part 6’, you know, like when you have an arc come in parts.

  4. Thanks for the chapter!

    Zuo Mo and Pu Yao combo have launched an area attack of common sense destruction! xD

    I’d love to know is his little disciple has been able to solve the problems with the teachings he shared… would be great to see her solving what all those elders can’t, lol

  5. Thanks for the chapter!
    “The Prison-Breaking Six” to me sounds like an asian boy team, singing songs about love and wathnot.

      1. The “six” is to apply to all six problems … … oh well, chapter titles don’t matter so much.

  6. I agree about the title. I thought the genius alliance would have formed a team of 6 elites to try prison breaking battles after they got humiliated with the little yao problems.

  7. It feels like they haven’t even considered the possibility that his price is negotiable. Do yao not bargain for things or something? If so, its hard to say if that’s a good or bad thing for the MC since it could kill some future deals simply because the other party can’t afford his asking price and won’t understand that its not set in stone.

    I really want to know if Nan Yue can solve those problems 😉
    Also curious if she’ll share the answers with anyone if she can.

    1. Maybe Yao trading is different it’s basically item for stated price or no deal or perhaps they figured that the “elder/mysterious-Yao/dude” believes that is a proper price and they don’t want to risk losing the opportunity by looking “cheap” or offending him, who knows they might actually invent negotiation tactics in a few chapters:p

      Now that you mention it, she might actually accidentally trigger it and succeed it would be a short lived prison then xD And I think she might cave, she doesn’t have the years/experience to not get pressured into doing so.

      1. Even if she can answer the questions, I don’t think she’s strong enough yet to take down the Ancestral Wasteland Beast at the end.

      2. Exactly right. You only negotiate/bargain when you feel that your side is on equal footing. With ZM’s zombie thick-skinned demand it and his nonchalant treatment of the grey scar art, he’s in the position of power, so it seems.

    2. I think Nan Yue should be able to reach higher than the so called genius, but it would be still not enough to clear the 12 problems (maybe reach 9th or 10th…..)

      1. Depends on whether the 12 questions are the entire battle or just the first part.

  8. Zou mo revolutionizing the yao world. If his former sect found out, I wonder how piss ed they’d be. Not for the “treason” but that he still hasn’t been practicing the sword. I also wonder if he’ll ever meet his teacher again. She at least showed concern for him. Kinda feel bad cause she probably thinks he’s dead and probably resents the sect for it.

    1. Not to mention his Dhyana Body cultivation and formation understanding progressed far higher than his sword cultivation which he ruined by learning all those Sword technique which he learn up until beginer level.
      I bet they’ll choke and vomit blood or just pulled their hair from their scalp~

    2. He’s already being followed around for the ‘Stars during daytime’ anyway.

  9. If they make all this after only have reached the 6th problem….imagine what they would say after reaching the 12th and facing the beast? XD

    Thanks for the translation!

  10. Meatbun delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    Welcome back to “who wants to be a Mil..err.. Prison owner”
    Last time, we ask Huai boy our “Prison-breaking Quiz #6”
    On the Little Yao art Category. He used two help which is ‘Phone a Teacher’ and ‘Ask the audience’. Unfortunately the time limit ended..
    Now we have a Lucky participant, Cang Ze which represent his clan to answer a Bonus Question from our Benefactor whis is to accept ZM’s Bargain or Decline it.. But because he has no right to determine his clan resources. he used ’50:50′ and get an ‘Approval’ answer from his Clan leader. Let’s see if his choice is the right one~
    *drum roll*
    And we’ll see the answer in the next Chapter of Who wants to be a mil.. err what was the title again? ..Scalping Zombie Disciple?

  11. Lit’ cliffy is ruthless indeed.
    I think some day Zuo Mo will form a sect with yao , mo and xhiuze , hehe the whole world as his enemie.
    Thanks for the chapter.

    1. One day Li’l CLiffy and its descendants will found their own sect. And cultivate Mysterious Cliffy Technique and Little Cliffy Arts. Who knows there might even discover a unique Cliffy physique.

      1. Thankfully the story has long since been told, it is simply now the Holy TL is shining his light uppon us.

  12. I’m conflicted about the title. “The Prison-Breaking Six” sounds a lot like a group of prisoners trying to escape…

    How about “The Prison-Breaking Six Problems” or “The Six Problems” ?

    Or whatever and gimme another chapter 😀

  13. Thanks for the chapter!
    So is the next one going to be “Prison Breaking Seven”? (I didn’t check the raws)

  14. Lol, what if every three problems result in a qualitative change in difficulty (1-3 were normal, 4-6 were abnormal, etc…) and the last three need one to be at the level of being able to use the Wasteland Beast Sacrificial Art (iirc that was the correct order of words). They just get to the sixth level and don’t even understand the question XD

  15. Their clan motto is “never forget”. ZM’s mysterious dream is “Never forget. Even in death, never forget.” I wonder if there is a relation between ZM and that Yao clan.

    1. My bet is the ‘never forget’ of the grandpas is in relation to a promise their ancestors may have made to Pu.

  16. to be fair, Void Sword Essence is PRETTY fucking unique, even if its changed if you are familiar witht he feeling of void essence, you would recognize it, and as for Zuo Mo, we all know he hasn’t progressed in AGES with his sword essence, not surprisingly.

    1. I assume it’s like someone’s appearance. They may age but you can usually still recognize them.

  17. im pretty sure the worldly aspiration was the same as when he first got his sword essence

  18. Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE, WanderingGummiOfDoom, and Brian! Pu Yao being all sneaky and manipulating Zuo Mo like that haha.

  19. I don’t think the prison will ever be broken. How many ‘genius’ yaos will get this one right.

    12th Q: What is the most important thing in the world?

    A: Money

  20. Why are people assuming there’s 12 questions? where did 12 come from?

    Thanks for the chapter.

  21. Erm. The Do not forget part sounds familiar XD

    {Copied from Yunchii}

  22. An amusing chapter. Also “DO NOT FORGET!” Perhaps…Perhaps dear old Zuo Mo is actually a yao that had all its yao characteristics removed? nah.

  23. LOL….Zuo Mo recognizing Wei Sheng’s sword essence and Wei Shen also doing the same to Zuo Mo. Both of them surprised and now getting in hype to see each other, the feeling is like two lovers who were torn apart for a long time are finally going to meet. Wei Sheng x Zuo.

    Then again, I still prefer Pu Yao x Zuo Mo.

  24. Haha Wei Sheng is a proud example of sword xiu while Zuo Mo was trending in the yao world…
    Also author, would you stop teasing us with Zuo Mo and Wei shixiong meeting!! x,,D geez

    Thanks for the chapter!🍀

  25. “Do not dare to forget!”

    Wtf? This reminds me of zuo mo’s dream! What-

Tell me something
