Chapter Four Hundred and Seventy Nine – Triumphant Progress

Frightened out of his wits, Gu Ming Gong did not struggle as Zuo Mo put on the jinzhi. His worries gone, Zuo Mo went with Gu Ming Gong to his home, scalped the inside and out to get a small sum of wealth.

There wasn’t any blood in the pitiful Gu Ming Gong’s face. In reality, he had not recovered from his shock.

The other’s cultivation was clearly not in jindan but was able to put jinzhi on his body. This upended all the conventions he knew. He also did not resist the series of what could be called complex missions that Zuo Mo sent down.

Teaching forging, forging, preparing materials … …

Gu Ming Gong was an old-timer and had seen everything. He was clear to his situation.

Captives never had the right to bargain. If the other was not desiring his skill in forging, his bones would probably be cold right now. He was not unfamiliar with teaching. Due to his title of “Seal Immortal,” many people would frequently come to his home and ask for guidance. As to forging, that was his profession.

However, when he entered Golden Crow Camp for the first time and looked at the densely packed crowd of forging xiuzhe below, he couldn’t help but be shocked. Only now did he readjust his judgement of Turtle Island’s power. There were only rare factions that could possess such a large number of forging xiuzhe, even the big sects did not have them.

Feeling shock, Gu Ming Gong was shocked again!

When he had taught to a point and told them they could try it out, the crowd below simultaneously showed their Golden Crow Fire.

In a flash, his eyes were dazzled by two thousand Golden Crow Fire flames, and the blood in his body froze.

The spectacular scene in front of him surpassed the limits of his imagination. When was fourth-grade Golden Crow Fire an essential part of people’s equipment? What joke was this?

He muddled through the first class.

He felt that he was an experienced and worldly person but … …

When he finally managed to recover from the shock from the first class and sorted his emotions out to start his second class, he received another blow!

Many students came with the talismans they had just forged in search of guidance.

Gu Ming Gong instantly felt better. Eager and hard-working students would always be preferred by teachers.

But when he saw several of the talismans that came from the forge, the expression on his face froze.

What formation was this? Hadn’t seen it before!

Didn’t see this one either!

This one … … still hadn’t seen it before!

Embarrassment! Great embarrassment! The pitiful Gu Ming Gong’s face was completely red and he wanted to find a hole to bury himself in. If the teacher was unable to solve a question from a student, he could generously praise the student for being very creative. But if he was unable to solve a number of student problems so early on, then that definitely was very awkward and shameful.

Heavens, Earth, spare me!

He didn’t know if they heard the wail in his heart, but the two masters came over to rescue him.

Another muddled class.

However, Gu Ming Gong found the two masters after class and asked them about those unfamiliar and strange formations he had encountered today. He was a smart person. Even though he felt very embarrassed by what happened today, he did not have an avenue of retreat.

If he just retreated the slightest bit, what was waiting for him was a chop.

No one would keep a captive that was useless, especially his exceptionally frugal master.

No matter what, he needed to show his value to the best of his abilities. The more value he showed, the better his situation would be and the further away from death he was.

He was quickly immersed and enchanted by these strange and wondrous formations.

These formations were completely different than any formation he had learned before but they held an unusual attraction that caused him to be greatly obsessed.

And when he saw the true form of these formations, those beautiful yet eerie mo matrixes, he was uncontrollably addicted and unable to pull himself away!

With the addition of Gu Ming Gong, the deconstruction rate of the mo matrix progressed just as fast as the forging skill level of Golden Crow Camp.




The situation of Turtle Island grew increasingly better.

As Ma Fan, Lie Peng, and Nian Lu had completed their core formations successfully, it meant that Turtle Island started to enter the era of jindan. With them, Turtle Island had more than six jindan. The two masters of Golden Crow Camp because of the benefits they had received from communicating and discussing with Gu Ming Gong felt the signs and entered seclusion to aim for jindan.

What was most unexpected was Chun Yu Cheng. When he had been raising ling beasts used for ling plant farming, he coincidentally comprehended a completely new husbandry spell called the [Ten Thousand Beast Body Rearing Spell]. His ling power exploded in a short time and he started his seclusion without a sound.

Guard Camp was in a complete transformation.

Ever since Pu had lost the bet with Wei, Guard Camp that had been once directed by Pu Yao had landed in Wei’s hand. In terms of mo cultivation, Pu Yao really wasn’t Wei’s opponent.

The [Great Day Hardship Guard] that Pu Yao put so much effort to change was taken by Wei. He changed a few places and that caused the power of the scripture to grow. In addition, Wei’s greatest accomplishment was to successfully changed Shu Long and A Wen into battle generals.

The methods of mo battle generals were completely different than the other two races. Wei’s previous owner was a very powerful mo battle general, yet what was unexpected to everyone was Zuo Mo was the best mo battle general.

Zuo Mo seemed to innately understand how to merge everyone’s power together. Shu Long and A Wen were far lacking compared to him in this area. Everyone collectively opposed the idea of Zuo Mo’s leading the charge at the front lines. Shu Long and A Wen were furiously cultivating so they could prevent Zuo Mo from being at the front.

Benefiting from the explosion of income on the island, Zuo Mo waved his hand and got all the materials and jingshi that Guard Camp needed to make mo weapons.

The present Guard Camp had exchanged their muskets for cannons.




Wei was feeling very good so naturally Pu Yao was extremely discontent.

The proud Pu could not accept losing Guard Camp! But he stood by his bet and he definitely could not do something as demanding to take it back. In his mind, Guard Camp wasn’t anything but he could not let go of losing to Wei.

When Wei changed [Great Day Hardship Guard] and made mo battle general cultivation as his first accomplishments, Pu Yao was furious. In the past, Wei had said with a straight face that he did not understand.

So this guy had nefarious aims long ago!

Knowing he had been tricked, Pu Yao did not show it, but held the hatred inside.

Pu Yao quickly found a solution.

“Go to Ten Finger Prison?” Zuo Mo was slightly puzzled but when he thought it had been a long time since he saw Nan Yue, Cang Ze, Ming Jue Zi, and the others, he happily agreed. “Okay, let’s go see!”

The human and the yao came to Ten Finger Prison.

The Wasteland Beast Chessboard was just like before but there seemed to be less people and it seemed quiet.

Zuo Mo quickly found the trio of Nan Yue, Cang Ze and Ming Jue Zi.

When the three saw Zuo Mo, they were overjoyed and came over to greet him. However, their eyes were more curious about Pu Yao. The strong presence of Pu Yao was really too obvious and made the trio’s hearts shake.

Zuo Mo was slightly shocked. Pu Yao had shown his true self, this was unlike his usual behaviour. What did this guy want to do?

But pushing aside his puzzlement, he introduced, “This is Pu.”

“Pu Daren, good day!” The three said as they bowed together.

Pu Yao smiled slightly, “Greetings to you three.”

Pu Yao was peerlessly handsome with a thread of evilness. With this slight smile, he was like the rose that bloomed in the dark night, scary but enchanting.

The three had never seen such a smile before and couldn’t help but be stunned. Nan Yue also showed a rare blush.

Zuo Mo felt even more puzzled. Pu Yao wasn’t normal today.

But Zuo Mo quickly threw this thought to the back of his mind and asked how the trio was doing lately.

The three had been doing very well lately, especially in the area of yao arts where they improved rapidly. In order to increase their ability to help each other, Nan Yue and Ming Jue Zi all moved their clans to the lands of the Grey Clan so they could help and support each other.

The three thought of themselves as the students of Xiao Mo Ge, advancing and moving together. As the trio increased in strength, the strength of their clans also increased. The lands of the Grey Clan was remote and there were no other factions. Their lives were becoming better.

However, the three could not disguise their worries.

Upon closer inquiry, Zuo Mo finally learned that the state of the yao was not very good recently.

After two major corps, Fierce Fire and Ice Frost, were destroyed, Bloody Sky Metropolis Jie truly became a meat-grinder that was soaked in blood everywhere. The three factions continuously fought, continuously changing the territorial boundaries, see-sawing back and forth. The battles were fierce and the losses on the three sides were huge.

Just a few days ago, a troop of xiuzhe had appeared without any warning in the innermost area of the yao territory and caused great damage. Even though this troop was killed in the end, but they had done great damage. They had found after the fact that these xiuzhe had made their way through an unknown chaos rift.

But this incident caused great terror in the yao world. Even though the battle at the front lines had never stopped, for most yao this did not affect their lives. The cruel truth had smashed their naïve thinking into smithereens. They found, in shock, that war was so close to them and could appear next to them at any moment.

What was even more scary was that another small xiuzhe battalion had appeared in another yao jie not long after. It was fortunate that this was a large jie so the troops stationed there were very strong and not a great deal of damage was done.

But this caused the normal yao that were already feeling unsafe to become even more scared.

They could not even guarantee the smallest yao jie had been searched all over. No one knew if there were chaos rifts in the unexplored areas around them, leaving them insecure.

Many families sent out people to search their surroundings and started a web-like search to destroy weaknesses that could exist.

Very quickly, there was a clan that found an extremely hidden chaos rift fifty li from the family base. All the people of the clan were frightened out of their bodies, and moved their clan away that night.

Incidents like this occurred continuously in the recent days and a mood of terror spread.

The three also had the same worries. The area they resided in was remote and  no real powers in the area so their living was very easy. Due to this, if xiuzhe really invaded, they also lacked the ability to protect themselves.

After the three finished speaking, Zuo Mo couldn’t help but worry for them. Even though Nan Yue and the others were yaomo but they were much closer to Zuo Mo than normal xiuzhe. Naturally, he did not want anything to happen to them.

At this time, Pu Yao’s enchanting voice sounded, “I have a solution.”


Translator Ramblings: Yao world developments. On another note, I will be off for a long day of flight + waiting time + bus ride. I just had to go for the cheap option and now I can’t even change my mind since I paid already. Fifteen hours, yaaaaaaaaaaaay.

  1. Pu be like, “Since that rusty armour take my guard camp, I’ll just make a stronger Yao camp!”

    Thanks for the chapter

  2. Pu be like, “Since that rusty armour took my guard camp, I’ll just make a stronger Yao camp!”

    Thanks for the chapter!

  3. Hmmm… I thought Pu would have gotten them to get in contact with the decendents of his other dead subordinates to make handing over lost clan yao arts easier.

    1. Things kind of happen fast. PY may have thought he had all the time in the world. Plus, me won’t just hand over the arts just because their descendants. He wants them to follow ZM so they have a future but on the flip side he also wants to meet them and see if they are worthy.

      1. He also mentioned to ZM why he doesn’t just send a message or directly meet them in the prison is because the times are changing and it may not always be better for the clan to have this technique. He’s really so far only helped the ones he has directly seen and probably will continue to until he gets information (whether he asks is another story) about the other clans of the people that were in his battalion.

    1. People who miss pu yao are perverts. WHEN will there be a Mo chapter. Mo are real men.! hahaha..

  4. So 7 jindans: Xie Shan, Wei Sheng, Zong Ru, Ma Fan, Lei Peng, Nian Lu, Gu Ming Gong. Plus soon to be jindans Ji Wei, Sun Bao, and Chun Yu Cheng makes 10. Quite the lineup Zuo Mo has. And that’s just those with the strongest individual strength.

    And, aww. I love the 3 Yao bonding together as Xiao Mo Ge’s “students”.

    I can’t wait for the next developments. WOC is awesome. Major understatement, really. It’s long become one of my favorite c-novels and Zuo Mo, a favorite character. Thank you so much for your hard work translating! And thanks to the editors as well. 🙂

    1. can you imagine running into the old sect? The student is now commanding about as many jindan (they strong armed a few into joining after all), has better gear and is WAY better at forging and jingshi making

      1. I’ve been imagining this since before Wei Sheng joined Zuo Mo. Remember that cave scene where that Kun Lun guy was showing him a scroll of ZM kicking jindan ass in that jie they first escaped to (I forgot the name)? I wondered what Zuo Mo’s sect teachers thought of their old student’s progress. I’m even more excited for them to meet now that Turtle Sect is more established.

    2. Is Chun Yu Cheng already in ningmai? I thought he was still in zhuji, so his seclusion should be to go into ningmai, right?

      Gu Ming Gong isn’t reliable for now, but Zuo Mo himself is jindan-class, and so are Shu Long and A Wen from the Guard Camp.

      Now I just miss the people from Zuo Mo’s old sect – his teacher, shijie from the outer sect, the apple-girl shimei, and the improved Luo Li.

      1. Few chapter ago it’s confirmed that Zuo Mo’s ling cultivation is the lowest. Yeah, Chun Yu Cheng is going to be a jindan!

      2. 2nd paragraph >> I know what you mean. Of course Zuo Mo himself and Shu Long and A Wen are powerful too but they’re sort of hidden cards because those 3 aren’t conventionally strong; i.e. they’re not jindan so those who only look at the level of Ling cultivation might underestimate our trio to their own detriment.

        I’m curious at Apple girl’s growth as well. Luo Li not so much.

  5. Meatbun Delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    Pu got lonely after his toy got taken.. now he want’s ZM’s Yao toy..

  6. really thought that Pu would grab the flowerboyband and make it his.

    Gues he would rather start up a branch yao turtle faction than have leftovers…

  7. Yahoo! Back to the Yao after so long. Unfortunately, I’ve forgotten what happened and who’s who. I sort of remember Nan Yue, Cang Ze and Ming Jue Zi; but who are the Grey Clan? I also sort of recall Zuo Mo making a few more followers in the Yao world, but I can’t remember their names. Can some kind soul point out the relevant chapters? I’ve looked at the table of contents, but can’t figure out which chapters to re-read.

    >> Translator Ramblings: Yao world developments. On another note, I will be off for a long day of flight + waiting time + bus ride. I just had to go for the cheap option and now I can’t even change my mind since I paid already. Fifteen hours, yaaaaaaaaaaaay.

    For long journeys where you have to sit on your butt the whole time, keeping your seat-back completely vertical can help reduce lower back pain. This comes from personal experience. I’ve tried cushions and towel rolls, but these were never as good.

    1. I am not 100% sure but Cang Ze is from grey clan. There are only four yao followers, fourth one is brother of Cang Ze. Rest of the yao’s are side characters who were introduced only one or twice.
      Read from chapter 338 onwards for yao’s

      Nan Yue and her Wisteria Clan. Make love not war.
      Cang Zue, his brotha and the Grey Clan with their Golden Souls. Disco fever!
      Ming Jue Zi is the librarian. We only know enough about his clan that they had lost their clan arts so Ming MJZ must have had a lot of clout when he brought it back. Telling him it came from XMG probablly helped too.

      Friends, Frenimies, Anemones (?)
      Smoke Guy & Friend
      MJZ had a friend the first time he showed up. Kicked to the curb?
      That tree that wouldn’t shut up and Nan Yue’s other school mates.
      One Mole and her brother, who’s a XMG fan.

  8. I know this is off topic, but what happened to Zuo Mo’s Ling Eyes. The author hasn’t mentioned them in a long time. Couldn’t he have used them to see through illusions. That would have made his fight in the illusion gem much easier. Heck shouldn’t it make seeing through formations and breaking yao arts easier?

      1. He had a talent for formations before he had them though. If they are the reason he got even better than the author should say so. As it is know, it just feels like he is better because he has more experience. It wouldn’t have been to hard to drop a line once an arc or every two arcs mentioning them. I mean we didn’t even see the extent what they could do. Can he see how strong xiu are? The author spent around 3 or more chapters on him getting them and just tosses them away. Feels like they either forgot or realized how strong the eyes could have made him, with know idea how to balance them, so they tried to phase it out.

      2. he did mention it when he just got the eyes. but yeah, it could have been mentioned and used a bit more, sortof seams like it has been forgotten by now. but then again, the author has writen side storylines that only really payed of a few hundred chapters later when everyone sort of had forgotten about them… and it wouldn’t be the first power he hadn’t used for years that sudenly made a comeback, i can’t have been the only one that reacted with a “oh, yeah, has has that” when the element bead made a reappearance in ancient battlefield.

      3. @inbetweenaction, the bead wasn’t something he could control though and served as more of a plot point than an ability. Its purpose was a link to his past, to explain his above average ability with the elements, and save him or at least help him when his body was in danger from internal forces. He trained to get the ling eyes and had full mastery over them. If they weren’t that useful I could understand, even though it’s bad writing to waste our time with it, but they can be used in a lot of situations.

    1. Zuo Mo mainly was not fighting an illusion back then, but a seal soldier. The illusion was mainly for isolating him from his subordinates.

      1. They were fighting 2 people. One controlling the soldier that was hidden by the other controlling the illusion. He could have saw the ling power of the one controlling the solider and killed him before he had a chance to react.

  9. Thank you for the chapter!

    I guess it’s time for the master of Xiao Mo Ge, the famous Sky Yao to burst onto the stage!
    Lets see Wei compete with the descendant clans of his past battalion in number. Fu fu fu fuuu.

    …of course this just means that they’ll be getting a legitimate Mo Brigade eventually.

    1. Arent guard camp basically mo now? I mean they cultivate like mo, they pull in energy like mo. Their weapons and armor are part of them… guard camp are pretty much mo guards now. I hope the yao students get brought to turtle island, YAO CAMP!

      1. Depends on your definition of mo. Is it the background (evolved from beasts) or is it the way the cultivate (the body).

  10. Yay Chun Yu Cheng! Yay Yao students! It makes me so happy to hear about everyone getting stronger. I love this story so much! Thanks for translating and releasing so regularly. 15 hours of travel is rough. I hope you have good books/music to mitigate the torture. Be safe!

  11. Thanks wyhcwe and wanderinggummiofdoom.
    Nan Yue blushed!, Nan Yue be on guard he’s an ancient relic. Zuo protect her from pervy Pu.
    What’s Pu’s upto!….Can’t wait!

    1. Also what happen to that female xiuzhe who was kidnapped by xie shan group way back in little mountain jie. She was teaching about ling beast rearing.

      PS: All the best for arduous journey.

      1. Maybe she still following the gang, or maybe she already quit the fellowship in Sky-Water Jie. The group’s number was reduced quite significantly there.

      2. Wow that took me a long time to remember. She hasn’t been mentioned again, so she’s either Cheng’s assistant, dead, or, more likely, they left her there in the city where most of the Little Mountain Jie people stayed.

      3. If she’s dead I don’t care
        If she’d left then it’s her misfortune, she could have accompanied and learned a lot from loner Cheng.

        There is also another reason which is “Boss wife is the only female *cough cough* silly bird too among these brutes!”. A huge disparity.

      4. She’s busy raising her and CYC’s kid. Who, though only 1 year old, we sadly know has a higher cultivation then ZM. =P

  12. Thanks for the chapter!
    And hey, at least it’s only 15 hours. Last time I went to China, I ended up spending about 22 hours….because I chose the cheaper option and had to stay a night for the morning flight…

    1. On my way from India back to Canada I ended up taking a roughly 28 hour trip, though a fair part of that was the bus ride to the airport (like a couple cities away) and then a wait before I went from my middle destination back to Canada.

      1. From which Indian city you are from!. I am from the capital.

      2. I lived in Jalandhar while visiting my relatives there, I was born and raised in Canada though.

  13. Thank you very much for this chapter; and good luck with your 15 hours of traveling!

  14. Off topic: Also what happen to that female xiuzhe who was kidnapped by xie shan group way back in little mountain jie. She was teaching about ling beast rearing.

    Is Boss wife only female *cough cough* silly bird too among these brutes!

    PS: All the best for arduous journey.

  15. Gu Ming Gong. You indenturing done. Prepare for brainwas. . ., I mean indoctrinat. . .I mean incentivizing.

    Oh, who am I kidding! Welcome to the Dark Side! We have free food!

  16. I wonder if Pu can go to the prison without Zuo Mo. If so, then he could live a life almost completely independent of him if he wanted to.

    1. Until ZM dies. And PY goes poof before he realizes why.

      But truly, at this point is his life PZ’s doesn’t care about the yao the mo or xiuzhe. His highest priority is making sure his arts have a legacy. He’ll stick close to ZM for the chance to make that happen.

      1. He’d have a better chance making it happen in the yao world though. He could get those three to hunt down all the other descendants and form a faction, which he could then run as a way of dealing with boredom.

  17. Thanks for the chapter,
    Yay, Yao time! PU is so cute when he sulks about his playthings being taken away and improving out of his hand

  18. So Pu is going to start a branch office of “Turtle Enterprise” ? Or a massive transfer and assimilation of the “Turtle Startup”? hahahaha

  19. The Zuo Mo faction is powering up like crazy… The Yuanying enemy can’t be far! I wonder where he’ll come from, they are making such a big fuss that it wouldn’t be unreasonable for Kun Lun to take notice at some point… Every time they mention Zuo Mo talent at leading with the mo general method I can’t shake the feeling that Zuo Mo is gonna lead everybody to take down a Yuanying, that’d be cool!!

  20. Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE and WanderingGummiOfDoom! Just like Zuo Mo’s body merged three powers, his troops in real life are going to consist of the three factions as well eh? I think Player 4 will factor into the war in the near future.

  21. Thanks for the chapter~ ^^.
    Now I’m wondering just how will Pu Yao get back to Wei, lol. haha~ XD!

  22. Jack wishes you a safe and enjoyable journey!
    Life before Death.
    Strength before Weakness.
    Journey before Destination.
