Chapter Three Hundred and Sixty Five – Let’s Have A Discussion

The sixth problem had been solved.

The news swept through almost all the yao art houses like a strong gust of wind and was as if someone had thrown a spark into a pot of oil.

Originally, the prison-breaking six problems were unexpected and unconventional, but it was not enough to cause everyone to pursue a solution. Even though the conflict between the mysterious prison-breaking yao and the Genius Alliance had been aggrandized, those with some intelligence would not put too much importance on it. The matter clearly a manipulation by someone from the shadows. Everyone watched it with the intentions of witnessing the spectacle and for amusement. No one believed the mysterious prison-breaking yao could defeat the Genius Alliance. Any normal yao would clearly arrive at this conclusion.

So when Huai Boy had succeeded in activating the prison breaking battle, everyone watched but felt it was expected. Everyone had been speculating on when the Genius Alliance would break the prison. One of the Genius Alliance’s supervisors had activated the prison-breaking battle. The Genius Alliance had so many supervisors. Breaking the prison was just a matter of time.

The prison-breaking six problems were novel to everyone, and showed everyone a completely different way of thinking. To be able to create something unique in the little yao arts which had been studied so thoroughly, the strength of the mysterious prison-breaking yao could not be underestimated. Some powerful great yao and famed teachers from famed yao art houses gave their praises, and were in agreement that they favored the potential of the mysterious prison-breaking yao and thought his future was limitless.

Even as the prison-breaking six problems increasingly attracted the attention of more and more yao, but in the eyes of the public, this wasn’t anything.

Each year, a few  brilliant stars would appear and be praised by these so-called famed teachers, but the great majority would gradually grow dim and lose their standing.

But just as everyone was waiting for the Genius Alliance to make a new move, everyone noticed a strange occurrence.

The solution to the sixth prison-breaking problem had not been announced.

One day, two days, three days … …

The topic of the mysterious prison-breaking yao vs the Genius Alliance had lost its fervor and interest waned, but there was still no news of the answer to the sixth problem. It wasn’t known who first mentioned this strange situation, but it instantly attracted everyone’s attention.

Was the sixth problem this difficult?

Everyone had been somewhat disinterested in this matter, but their appetites were whet again.

The people inside the Genius Alliance did not place much importance on this matter. They were full of confidence. Huai Boy had not successfully completed the prison-breaking, but it definitely was a good beginning. Young geniuses? The alliance did not lack geniuses.. Many supervisors were wondrously in consensus over this matter. They did not disturb the higher ranks. They firmly believed that they could solve this matter based on their individual strengths.

Yet when the outside world started to discuss when the answer to the sixth problem would come out, they suddenly found to their shock, that without their notice, they had all been stuck on this problem.

Now everyone was in a hurry.

The branches of the Genius Alliance at each jie changed their lax attitude and quickly formed teams to work together on the problem.

At last, on the ninth day, the answer to the sixth problem came out.

The appetite of the outside world was very high. When the sixth problem’s answer came out, it pushed the matter of mystery prison-breaking yao vs Genius Alliance to the top again. Everyone suddenly found that it wouldn’t be so easy for the Genius Alliance to win.

A battle with great power disparity naturally would not be interesting to many eyes. But when the underdog they had thought would lose in one round had endured for ten, left in a better shape than they anticipated and with a glimmer of hope, , the interest of the spectators skyrocketed.

There wasn’t just one or two groups that wanted to see the Genius Alliance be left looking like fools.




“We must retaliate!” the supervisor from the Lilium Jie said excitedly. His temper was explosive to start with, and he had been very stimulated by the words from the outside.

“Yes! We have to retaliate!” the other supervisors agree with excited expressions.

When had these proud individuals ever endured so much mockery and disdain? They firmly believed that the Genius Alliance gathered the most outstanding geniuses of the yao. They felt very proud of themselves for being among them.

“Hmph, just took us a few extra days of effort, and all the scum have come out!”

“We have to make them see the reality.” Another supervisor shrugged with a helpless expression. “Even if it is a bit cruel.”

“What does everyone think? We can’t just get beat up like this. When has our Genius Alliance ever lost like this?” the supervisor from the Lilium Jie said.

“Ha, very simple, increase the reward!”

“Yes, brave ones will come for a great reward!”

The yao supervisors had a common enemy and all gave their suggestions towards a plan.

“Everyone contribute a few credits. Once we have a few hundred. I don’t believe that no one in the alliance won’t take it! I will contribute ten credit points.”

“I will donate twenty!”

The supervisors discussed and felt that this was a good plan. Not every member of the Genius Alliance had an outstanding family to support them. The alliance did not lack members that came from those poor families. The majority of these people that entered the Genius Alliance chose to do so due to the great benefits the Genius Alliance provided. These yao cared about material gain, and not reputation. They usually did not interact with these supervisors, and could be considered to be a clearly separated group.

However, these yao had a fatal weakness, credit points. The credits of the Genius Alliance were really just contribution points. They were able to exchanged all kinds of yao arts and worldly treasures for credit points from the alliance.

When they encountered a troublesome problem, the supervisors instantly remembered these people that they usually looked down upon.

In the corner, Huai Boy did not make a sound. His complexion was fragile, but an indiscernible cold smile floated at the corner of his mouth. These past few days, the other supervisors had been ignoring and shunning him, and he deeply felt how cold people here were. He knew the reason. Many supervisors felt discontented that of all the supervisors it was he that activated the prison-breaking battle. If he had succeeded, he would be a hero and the discontent would have been suppressed. They would have fawned over him. But he was defeated so he became the target of disdain.

He suddenly felt he was slightly laughable.

Why was he together  with such an ungenerous and obnoxious crowd  that thought highly of themselves?

He silently looked on and smirked coldly inside.




The troop would advance a distance every day.

If they stopped, Zuo Mo would start drinking with Wei Sheng. The alcohol wasn’t anything good, but the two were very happy when they drank. They spoke of what happened to them in these few years, reminiscing on the interesting things that happened in their sect in the past.

They sighed.

“Speaking of it, if it wasn’t for these incidents, we wouldn’t be who we are today.” The alcohol was going to Zuo Mo’s head. He did not use ling power to suppress the effects of the alcohol. He said with a smile, “Without the troubles and worries in the past, how could Shixiong’s sword heart be so strong? Without the dangers along this road, I don’t know in which  little corner I would be in trying to pass the days. I’d probably be just farming ling fields or something.”

“Right!” Wei Sheng gulped down a large mouthful of alcohol, and allowed the excess liquid to freely flow down along his neck. He suddenly said, “Shidi, what is your goal?”

“Goal?” Zuo Mo stilled. He tilted his head and thought for a while. Then he counted on his fingers as he said, “First, heal A Gui, and then investigate my origins. However, this second matter cannot be forced. I don’t have too much hope. Most importantly, make more jingshi and give everyone good days so I do not fail them for choosing to accompanying me through these dangers.”

“Haha!” Wei Sheng gave a booming laugh. “Apart three days, I have a different view of you! Shidi in the past was the one most afraid of trouble. You now have great goals. Good, good!”

Zuo Mo’s face blushed at Wei Sheng’s words. “What great ambitions? I’m unable to get off the horse! Shixiong, don’t laugh at me!”

“This is good!” Wei Sheng put down the wine pouch in his hand and said seriously, “I always felt that Shidi did not lack talent, but your personality was somewhat carefree. Now that Shidi has resolve, you naturally will have accomplishments. Even our sect cannot compare at all to the followers that Shidi has now.”

“What about Shixiong? What goals do you have?” Zuo Mo asked curiously.

“Me?” Wei Sheng thought for a second and suddenly gulped wine. When he put down the pouch, his expression was grave. “In this life, I pursue the pinnacle of the sword!”

Wei Sheng’s words were strong and steely without any hesitation or fright!

“Good!” In Zuo Mo’s sea of consciousness, Pu Yao couldn’t resist praising.

Threads of admiration came into Zuo Mo’s heart. He recalled the jade scroll that Eldest Shixiong had given him that recorded the hardships that Eldest Shixiong encountered in his search for the sword. They flowed past his eyes. Of all the people he ever encountered, in terms of determination, Eldest Shixiong was undoubtedly ranked first.

Only people like Eldest Shixiong were able to walk to the peak of the sword path!

Zuo Mo was shocked and admiring, but when the words reached his mouth, they became “Shixiong, let’s have a discussion?”

“Discussion? What matter?” Zuo Mo’s change was so sudden that Wei Sheng did not have the time to react.

Shixiong pursues the sword path, how can it work without true combat? Combat is the best way to advance!” Zuo Mo lowered his face and did not disguise his true expression. He snickered and said fawningly, “How about we go together, I’ll provide food, shelter, and jingshi! Shixiong, don’t worry, we lack for everything, but we won’t lack for fighting! We will definitely satisfy Shixiong and make it extremely fulfilling! That sword path comprehension, experience, they will rise, and be unable to be stopped even if you want it too! If you are lucky, you might get an intimate friend of the fairer sex, a sword couple in paired cultivation, and to seek the path together! Didn’t they say something like the warm home is the hero something? Oh oh oh, Shixiong is a true and honest person, and naturally will not be affected by beauty … …”

Wei Sheng gaped and did not realize the alcohol was spilling on to his body.

Zuo Mo continued to talk for a while until his throat was dry. He finally stopped and took a gulp of alcohol to moisten his throat before he asked Wei Sheng with a strong face, “Shixiong, your opinion?”

Wei Sheng pointed at Zuo Mo and laughed. “To hope that a lazy guy like you would be serious is like hoping a sow can climb up a tree.”

It seemed that he hadn’t put in enough effort!

Seeing this, Zuo Mo took a large gulp of alcohol, moistened his throat and prepared to start again.

A crisp voice came into Zuo Mo’s years. Zuo Mo who had been preparing his emotions and preparing to start persuading again and didn’t react in time and almost spat out the alcohol.


Choked by the wine, Zuo Mo had dead fish eyes as he turned to look at Wei Sheng.

Wei raised the alcohol pouch and put it in front of Zuo Mo. He smiled freely. “Yes!”

Zuo Mo was overjoyed when he reacted. Raising his alcohol pouch, the two pouches collided together.

That night, Zuo Mo dreamed off Shixiong as a giant that killed in all directions at the front, and he was at the back and furiously counting jingshi with a dumb smile on his face. So much jingshi, he couldn’t count it all … …


Translator Ramblings: Some comedy to lighten up the mood. The problem with building up the tension is that payoffs are hard, especially if it isn’t an epic battle. It’s like going up a rollercoaster, and then when you are expecting to have a fast rush down, you find that it is flat. What to keep in mind for this story is that there is a somewhat cohesive story arc so every little arc is a little step up the climbing part of the rollercoaster and you are not at the big fall yet.

  1. LOL those last lines are so him.
    Zuo Mo’s years
    Zuo Mo’s *ears.
    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. to be fair, its his roundabout way of wanting his Shixong to say with him to keep company, plus it really is best spot his Shixong can be in their travelling war band. In future i’m betting they accidentally teleport right into the frontlines and steamroll everyone.

  2. nah, was fairly fullfilling. probably one of the best unions of their forces. also, i wounder how much jingshi the yao are willing to pay for each solution from Zuo Mo

    1. Sadly if they do so he’ll probably see nothing because Pu Yao will force him to convert all items the Yao would give to things that will help him recover like the Golden Souls.

  3. That night, Zuo Mo dreamed off Shixiong as a giant that killed in all directions at the front, and he was at the back and furiously counting jingshi with a dumb smile on his face. So much jingshi, he couldn’t count it all …

    What a beautiful dream!

    1. YES!

      And it’s so like Zuo Mo. Make other people do the hard work, and, as for him, just sit at the back and reap the jingshi. Ah, paradise…

  4. thanksf or the chapter!


    I want this dream too:

    “That night, Zuo Mo dreamed off Shixiong as a giant that killed in all directions at the front, and he was at the back and furiously counting jingshi with a dumb smile on his face. So much jingshi, he couldn’t count it all …”


  5. MC storage space doesn’t have IntOverflow. 😀 only UncountableInfinity 😀

    1. He already has a good tank in the Hardship Guard, he just needs more pokey sticks like Xie Shan and Ma Fan.

  6. I’m curious what is happening/happened to the little Dhyana lamb I guess we’ll see some more of him next chapter.

    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. Well, the water guy’s prison breaking battle had 3 stages, so I’m betting the 12 questions are only Zuo Mo’s first stage.

    2. i dont think it a feeling… remember when Zou Mo doing the prison battle he have to fight like 2-3 time?
      so i think the first 12 question are the door step… next would be 12×12=144… then 144×144=20736 … and then LOL 20736×20736=429981696 and finally the last question if they answer it wrong the whole thing reset!!!
      im sure they gave up soon enough, if it not difficult then it wouldn’t be battle breaking!!!

      1. No. They do not have to solve 429981696 problems.

        They have to defeat 429981696 wasteland beasts.

  7. So the yao also have contribution points…

    It seems that the main differences in the yao and xiu is that the yao have a better foundational system for the general populous, allowing all of its members get up to a notable level. This allows them to steam roll the xiu masses from small sects and jies, who lack the resources and spells to keep up since the basic resources are more guarded.

    Besides that, the xiu have more need for materials over techniques. Sure, xiu would love a good scriptures and such… but mostly, they devote themselves to one scripture and supplement with talismans (which are made by eating up resources- which puts them in conflict with the yaomo). The yao, in comparison, prefer to get more techniques by getting yao arts to get more options in various situations.

    1. “they devote themselves to one scripture and supplement with talismans (which are made by eating up resources- which puts them in conflict with the yaomo).” I agree. But they are also competing for resources with other xiu. This puts them in conflict with each other. The yao by comparison should be more united.

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

    I wonder if Nan Yue will accept the contribution points~

  9. are they taking out a bounty?
    I wonder if the questions reset when you leave? that would be awesome. It would make the entire “genius alliance” cough up blood.
    they also seem to keep forgetting the timer. Nothing is ever easier with a timer tracking you. well unless your abnormal.

    I am kind of expecting the next stage of the prison battle to have something to do with harder questions and higher speed. Although it could relate to lightning.

    1. yeah… seems like the main flaw in their little strategy. They don’t know if new problems are generated… or at least if there is a pool of 100 questions per level or something.

      Sure, they solved this problem. But it took them days, when the time limit is based on minutes (I guess- no time scale given for the first ‘battle’). Even if it is a pool of 10 questions per level, it would taken them weeks just to master the 6th level… and then they will have to spend months slogging through levels 7-12… if they can even do it. They are already getting stumped at level 6… no idea what level 12 is going to be like.

    1. no indication that he actually understands what that means.

      They do paired cultivation by rubbing feet, right? Putting their jingshi together?

      Maybe he is just tossing out some things he heard others talk about without actually understanding it. Like a 7 year old would (before the 7 year old learns about how you can just google porn)

  10. Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE and WanderingGummiOfDoom! Oh no I think Zuo Mo may have actually developed a foot fetish and awakened to the idea of romantic relationships.

  11. Lol….LOL! This chapter. So many faces were snapped and slapped and trapped. Zuo Mo still dreaming of Jingshi like other Mc’s do women.

  12. Wow, didn’t expect Shixiong would agree!
    Pei Yuan and other elders of Wu Kong would cry 😂

    Thanks for the chapter!🍀
