Chapter Five Hundred and Sixty Four – New Discovery

General level!

Was this the power of the general level? Zuo Mo thought back to the feeling he just had, that spontaneous pause. The change was not a major one, yet the power had drastically changed. Guiding the influx of power but not immediately attacking with it required a higher level of control. If he had tried this in the past, after the Guard Camp members shouted “kill,” he would not have been able to. If the roaring killing essence was not used immediately in an attack, it would have backlashed against him.

Control, this was the power of control, the control made possible at the general level.

He finally understood somewhat why all the mo battle generals were strong people. Gathering the power of tens of thousands into one point, other than astounding coordination, it also required an astounding ability to control oneself. The influx of power would cause those with weak bodies would have exploded long ago.

Just now, he suddenly found a wondrous use of shen power

shen power could greatly increase the stress tolerance of his body.

For normal mo, this might not be important, but for a mo battle general, this was crucial!

The manipulation of shen power was Zuo Mo’s weakness all this time. Both  Ceng Lian’er’s and A Gui’s shen power manipulation was exquisite. It was invisible and impossible to defend against, as well as being amazingly strong. But Zuo Mo could not reach their level. His manipulation of shen power was extremely crude. The gold leaf he obtained was like a book of the Heavens, hard to read and harder to understand. He only used shen power to cultivate his three powers. It was faster to cultivate shen power than the three powers individually.

A Gui could not speak, and Zuo Mo didn’t even consider asking Ceng LIan’er for advice. He had decided to explore himself.

Until today!

That pause allowed him to find a completely new channeling method of shen power.

Zuo Mo did not have Eldest Shixiong’s persistence and resolve, his periods of hard work were usually done to allow him to slack off in the future, but he was undoubtedly a smart person.

When he found that shen power would be channeled along with his mo physique, he instantly asked himself, could shen power be added into ling power? Could it merge with his spiritual consciousness?

When these thoughts popped up, he became excited!

Having had a good taste, Zuo Mo wanted to start experimenting immediately. However, he could only think about it at the moment. There were affairs to take care of right now.

Right, there was profitable business.




Everyone gradually recovered from the deathly silence and the terror stricken expressions faded. But when their eyes swept across Zuo Mo and the others, they couldn’t help but shudder. Celestial Planet Guard silently distanced themselves from Zuo Mo’s group. If it wasn’t that Miss was here, they would have most likely turned and ran back to Shattered Stone Jie by now. Even Shou Ping started to miss the peaceful environment of Shattered Stone Jie.

However, he noticed that Miss was not shocked by the success of Guard Camp.

“Make some tea,” Ceng Lian’er serenely spoke.

Xian’er seemed to wake up from a dream and started to boil water. However, there was still terror on her face and her hands were trembling.

Ceng Lian’er glanced at her. She faintly said, “Let me do it.”

Purple Charcoal Stove, Black Mud Pot, a little tea table, a bamboo tea place, a sky blue little pot, white cups, and Ceng Lian’er sitting there with her layered dress was like the flower blooming in the night. Her movements were elegant, her expression serene. Her seductive face was peerless. She seemed to be at ease as though she was in her own home.

Sitting amongst the disordered battlefield, she was unusually eye-catching.

The members of Celestial Plant Guard stared at each other and then they felt slight embarrassment. Miss was so composed and calm, but they had felt the urge to flee. This was an embarrassment!

The restless Celestial Plant Guard quickly calmed down.

“This subordinate is useless!” Shou Ping admitted his crime with an ashamed expression.

Ceng Lian’er took a light sip, her long eyelashes blurry among the steam. The beautiful face became more ethereal as she said serenely, “It is good for you to see the power of the general level.”

“General level!” Shou Ping’s eyes widened, his expression disbelieving. “Heavens, he’s so young!”

“Starting from today, you will all obey his orders.” Ceng Lian’er’s voice passed into Shou Ping’s ears through the rising steam of the tea.

“This … …” Shou Ping hesitated. They were Ceng Yi’s personal guard yet Miss was telling them to listen to the orders of another person. Shou Ping naturally could not help but feel resistant.

Ceng Lian’er continued to drink tea and her eyes didn’t even look up as though the person who spoke wasn’t her.

Shou Ping gathered his courage and voiced the puzzlement he felt. “Miss, this subordinate does not understand what Miss wants? This person is of unknown origins and his future vicious and hard to predict … …”

“You are disobeying?” Ceng Lian’er put down her teacup, her serene voice carrying a ice cold tone.

“This subordinate does not dare!” Shou Ping’s broke out in a cold sweat. He knew Miss’ temper very well. If he hesitated at all, Miss would execute him without a second word.

“Go,” Ceng Lian’er said lightly as though nothing had happened.

In the span of time that this word was said, Shou Ping’s back had been soaked. He couldn’t help but sigh inside, Miss had more presence than the Jie Master did at this age.

He didn’t dare to inquire further and retreated.

But when he almost reached Guard Camp, he suddenly recalled. What did Miss mean by “go?”

Shou Ping grimaced.




“This one is Tao Xing, many thanks, Little Brother, for your aid,” Tao Xing said politely to Zuo Mo. Just now, the power that Zuo Mo had shown shocked him. He was curious who Zuo Mo was. Such a strong youth could not be unknown.

“No need for thanks, this is just business.” Zuo Mo waved his hand with an unconcerned expression.

Tang Fei’s face turned black. It would have been fine if Zuo Mo didn’t mention it. Now that he did, she recalled this person’s past actions. It made her furious, the other had blackmailed them! Robbed them using threats! In her eyes, a person who acted so at such a crucial time had terrible conduct.

While she was angry, she suppressed it.

Even now, that astounding attack was still lingering in her mind.

“What should I call Little Brother? Where are you from?” Tao Xing smiled and asked. He was able to accept this. Even though the price caused him some pain, but it was worth it to save his life. Also, now the other would go to Endless City with them so their safety during this journey now had a very good guarantee.

“Just call me A Zuo.” Zuo Mo was an old-timer and understood what the other was probing for. He acted as though he did not hear Tao Xing’s second question.

Tao Xing did not care and said with a smile, “A Zuo is so young and has reached general level, your future is limitless!”

On the side, Tang Fei’s expression changed. General level! This person with terrible virtues was actually general level! She then had an expression of realization. No wonder this person was so powerful.

Tang Fei’s strength was pretty good but she was still brigadier level. Among the mo, brigadier mo were usually silver battle generals, and gold battle generals had to be general level and above.

Was this person a gold battle general? Tang Fei shook her head inside. She felt her thought was too absurd. Such a young gold battle general. That would only appear in the most prestigious of mo noble families.

This person in front of her was unrivalled in greed. What mannerisms of a prestigious upbringing did he have?

“How long until we reach Dark Abyss Jie?” Zuo Mo asked Tao Xing.

Tao Xing thought and said, “About a month or so.”

“En, let’s keep hurrying along.” Zuo Mo clearly did not have any interest in talking and ended the conversation.

Tao Xing was slightly shocked. No matter where he went, he was respected and taken care off. It was the first time that he had encountered someone like Zuo Mo that didn’t even have an interest in talking.

A person without manners!

Tang Fei added another criticism of Zuo Mo to her list.




Zuo Mo did notice that there were many eyes observing the battle from the shadows. However, due to the intimidation of Zuo Mo’s terrifying attack, those hidden scouts felt fear so they only followed from a distance. They feared that if they approached, the other would crush them to bits.

Immersed in his investigations, Zuo Mo did not detect that the name of Guard Camp was had gained infamy.

This battle had caused some ruckus when news that they had killed four hundred Green Yaksha with one blow. Facing the King Yaksha and still being able to destroy the enemy with one blow, the strength of the battalion was evident. Intelligence on the leader of Guard Camp was quickly gathered by this group.

All kinds of mirages appeared.

Guard Camp’s history was very mysterious. No one knew their origins, nor did they know what faction they belonged to.

But what attracted the attention of most people was Zuo Mo. So young, and in general level, this attracted everyone’s attention. Many people speculated on Zuo Mo’s background but there were no results.

But Zuo Mo did not know that his business deal had also tempted many of the powers hiding in the shadows.

This really was a great big piece of business!




Zuo Mo did not pay attention to Tao Xing’s group. He urgently wanted to test out the ideas in his head. He wanted to go into seclusion.

However, that clearly was not realistic. He could only think as he travelled. He quickly managed to come up with some techniques.

“He is a good mo battle general.” Wei had been paying attention to Zuo Mo’s experiments. In this period of time, Zuo Mo had asked him numerous times for advice, especially in the area of battle generals. Zuo Mo was not skilled in yao fighting methods but he would rapidly understand the mo battle methods and come up with new ideas that caused Wei to frequently sigh in amazement.

“Hmph!” Pu Yao’s expression was displeased. Everyday, he was in the Ten Finger Prison, and tormented the yao battalions. The pitiful Nan Yue, Cang Ze, and others, traveled during the day, and spent all of their remaining time in the Ten Finger Prison. It was extremely hard for them.

However, Nan Yue and the others gritted their teeth and managed to endure. This journey had caused them to understand that there was nothing more important than strength in troubled times.

What depressed Pu Yao was that there was nothing happening in his search of yao while Wei’s blood summons had gotten responses.

Damn it!

At this time, Pu Yao abruptly stopped. He suddenly stood up, a light flashing through his bloody pupil as he disappeared.

A yao had responded to the summons!


Translator Ramblings: Since Zuo Mo is technically “yuanying,” it is true that his lifespan has expanded. I can’t remember the exact number but he definitely gets 200 years of life. Zuo Mo needs to make long term investments … … otherwise, he’s not going to have any retirement funds.

    1. Clear the battlefield of what?

      There were 400 yaksha. Then there weren’t. Do you think there’s anything to loot from that?

  1. If Zuo Mo keeps up at this rate, he won’t need retirement funds. He’ll have an entire empire of yao, mo, and xiuzhe supporting him wholeheartedly.

    1. In most cultivation novels , cultivators don’t really make empires or other aristocratic structures. True, they might rule over a similarly sized area and behave somewhat like nobles, but they still call themselves sects or similarly and don’t usually interefere with ‘mortal’ affairs unless it’s against other cultivators or for benefits. But if i’m not wrong, in WoC, everyone is a cultivator, whether they’re xiu, yao or mo, everyone follows their path, while many of them are quite frankly lousy at it, they’re still doing it.

      1. I don’t think he has meant to build almost anything he has so far. Him accidentally creating an empire or super sect would not surprise me. Especially since he already has control of an entire jie and they are aiming for it to house yao, mo, and xiuzhe. This would attract tons of followers who don’t want the war.

      2. Gonna disagree on one part @kazedarkwind. He’s intenionally built a safe haven once before. It was the island all the way back at the “start.” It was meant to be a long term investment and a safe haven for himself. That got nuked though. So he hasn’t tried that plan since. But now he’s in Cloud Sea jie he’s once again realized the importance of a place to call home.

        As for @Robbini0……………….”most cultivation novels”? Who cares about most cultivation novels lol. This WoC and ZM does what he wants. If he wants an Empire he’ll build one. If he doesn’t want an Empire he’ll be gifted one by his crew and then shown his old dream of being a demander of taxes lol. He already built that plan back at the island as well. I’m seriously thinking his island experience can count as the first failed attempt at the ultimate end goal for ZM.

  2. While ge is happy with what happened, his senpai is worried AF,his Junior brother worried AF, his employees worried AF, literally every one is worried about him

    1. Sign of a good leader. Only good leaders have people below worry about them on both a professional and personal level.

  3. Ge is investing in conquering a home, being a landowner is a grand achievement in the dao of jingshi.

    He is investing in mines and farms, as well as forging, medicine, transportation and the defence industry.

  4. “Since Zuo Mo is technically “yuanying,” it is true that his lifespan has expanded.”
    Pretty sure his mo physique is going to ad just a ‘bit’ more than 200 years, lol.

  5. Just forget about retirement for now. With the ever increasing subordinates and jies and also enemies he’ll just get busy and busier.

  6. I really like the growth of the characters in this novel, most xian xia/xuan huan just left everything behind like a bad side characters after all.
    Thank you for the chapter!

  7. Its funny how everyone is suprised about his op 100 person Guard Camp, what would they think if they knew that Guard Camp has 2000-3000 people in it, and he has other battalions that are of equal size and strength. XD

    1. What would they think if they knew guard camp usually got looked on as the weaker of the combat camps?

      Also It looks like moon shen mo girl is pushing hard for a marriage. And I think the peanut gallery in zups head approves.

      1. They will probably turn to stone from shock, and they were only the weaker camp when there were only two camps. They have caught up to the first camp and the new camps cant even be mentioned, when comparing them with the first two.
        I hope ZM will get rid of her somehow soon, i still dont approve of how she was forced into the main story, with that bs reasoning.

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

    not scalping the dead yaksha?! who’s in charge of looting!! quick! get the spoils!

  9. Zuo Mo’s background is Zuo Mo. Stop trying to apply your logic to Ge, if you don’t stop, see if Ge wont smack you.
    Rome wasn’t built in a day, but the Sun Crow cult/sect/country was. Cult if Zuo Mo becomes a deity-like figure, unifying three factions in worship. Sect if they become a powerful force that creates a stalemate between the races. Country if Ge simply takes all the land in the ‘middle’ over and forces the kiddies to stop squabbling so Ge can do more business!

  10. Shou Ping should make up his mind.

    Wasn’t he saying just now that Miss Lian’er should cozy up to Zuo Mo? I clearly recall that he said that good looks, background and riches don’t matter squat in a mo, that only strength and fierceness matter, and that the Miss totally had to seduce Zuo Mo and carry his babies. (Cuz, you see, together they could make some SUPER STRONG babies!)

    How come now he’s saying that it’s wrong for the Miss to pay attention to Zuo Mo because he’s vicious, of unknown origin, etc. etc.?

    This shtoopid guy just doesn’t know what he wants…

  11. Ceng Lian’er is also general level. Is it just individual strength for her, or could she stand at the front of her guards and pull their energies for a move as well? I know we only got one clash is this last battle so no one even needed to think about what they were going to do, but what can she do? Has it not explained it yet, or did I miss it?

    Also, unfortunately, Ge didn’t leave any bodies to be looted. He’ll recoup his losses in mo embryos though 😀

    Thanks for the chapter!

  12. “When these thoughts popped up, he became excited!
    Having had a good taste, Zuo Mo wanted to start experimenting immediately. ”
    – Oh-oh… Beware: Zuo ‘Mad Scientist’ Mo has been triggered. Who will be his next victim?
    “Celestial Planet Guard silently distanced themselves from Zuo Mo’s group.”
    – Shou Ping:”I-it’s not that we are a-afraid or a-anything. Ju-just, giving you some space…T-to relax after fight…Y-you know? He-hehe…” *wiping cold sweat*

  13. I think of Turtle jie as a long term investment. The value of which, his wealth management expert Lil’ Miss, is seeking to increase for him right now.

  14. Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE and WanderingGummiOfDoom! I wonder if there’s a faction that will recognize the movements of specific families as the blood summons. The faction that beat them all before should know which families have the summons right?

  15. how does everyone know how young he is from one look?
    They cannot even tell his SPECIES by a look, but they can tell his age despite being unable to identify his species?

    1. Well, all of them pretty much have two eyes, a mouth, ears, and hair. For limbs and walk upright. Some people have scales or other things that mark them as mo or yao but most people are “normal” except with different hair color.

  16. I am loving it but felt a big letdown you kniw as when zuo mo was becoming jindan or even yuanning there was not much discription about it compared to when other guys did you know with the apparations energy and what not

  17. Err. I’m a couple years late and this is already finished, but that comment of his lifespan is somewhat off. If I remember correctly, Jindan gave 300ish years of life and the one after that gave 1000 years of lifespan. I’ve been binging this for the oast week or two, so I shouldn’t be wrong..;

Tell me something
