Martial World - chapter-305
Within the massive fire array formation, the more Ancestor Chi Yan
listened, the more he was shocked. From the first time that Lin Ming had
mentioned the 12 fire rune columns he had been shaken. The so-called fire
rune columns and the 36 spiral runes were all completely terms from the
ancient array formations!
The extraordinary and ancient array formations that had been passed down
to these times were already incomplete. Any archaic array formation jade
slip was a legacy that every array master longed for in their dreams.
Even the appearance of a single one could set off a bloody and terrifying
This boy actually understood the ancient extraordinary array formations?
Just who was his master?
Moreover, what startled Ancestor Chi Yan the most was that Lin Ming’s
perception of the Dao of array formations was simply terrifying!
The styles of ancient array formations were complex and limitless in
profundity. Even with the best teacher, without several decades of time,
nothing would come of it. But this young boy who looked at most 18 years
old, actually had the perception and vision to see the flaws in his own
Even before when he said, ‘the created friction will drain the fire
origin energy of strength, and will also disrupt the force fields that
contain the fire origin energy. Not only will this wear down the array
formation, causing it to need repairs every four or five years’, that
was also a very accurate and true judgment. After he first laid down this
array formation, he had to repair it every four years. It wasn’t until
later when he had added in a very precious material into the array
formation that he managed to forcefully extend the deadline to every ten
Just what was the origin of this boy?

Ming finished speaking in less than half an incense stick of time. And
Ancestor Chi Yan who was in the fire array formation, had fallen into a
long silence ever since Lin Ming spoke. All of that murderous intent that
he had been giving off was also contained.
Mu Qianyu was standing by the side, not sure what to say. After a long
time, Ancestor Chi Yan’s hoarse voice sounded out from within the array
formation, “You… what is your master’s name?”
Lin Ming said, “Master is an expert that I encountered when I was 12
years old. As for his name, Master never mentioned it.”
“12 years old… how old are you now?” Ancestor Chi Yan asked in a
somewhat trembling voice.
“Reporting to Senior, junior is currently 16 years old.”
“16 years old! Haha! 16 years old! Laughable! Hilarious!” With an
almost insane chuckle, Ancestor Chi Yan flung his sleeves and a wall of
the fire array formation opened up. He wore a long red robe, and his hair
was split in half, crazily scattered all around. Like this, Ancestor Chi
Yan stepped out of the eight trigrams fire array formation.
Ancestor Chi Yan’s face was deathly white, as if he was near death, and
both of his eyes revealed a lonely and bitter light. “A 16 year old
snot-nosed brat… studies array formations for a mere four years, but
can actually point out all the mistakes in this eight trigrams fire array
formation that I used 20 years of painstaking care and effort to lay
down! Too pitiful! Too laughable!”
Lin Ming had originally wanted to point out some flaws in Ancestor Chi
Yan’s array formation, and then propose some areas of possible
improvement. As exchange, Ancestor Chi Yan would forge the spear for him.
But he didn’t think that he would stimulate such a crazy and ferocious
attitude. This old man wasn’t at all normal from the start, and it
seemed that he had psychotic tendencies.
Lin Ming hesitated for a moment, and cupped his hands together, saying,
“Senior must be joking. The junior has only studied a few limited array
formations, and Senior’s eight trigrams fire array formation just
happened to be similar to the fire formation that my master taught me.
Therefore, I was able to notice some flaws.”
“Four years? Has only studied a few limited array formations?
…Haha!” Ancestor Chi Yan’s lips twitched. Lin Ming had said all of
this so easily, but array formations were an art which had to be studied
in a very orderly way. If there wasn’t a solid foundation, just where
would a high-level array formation like this eight trigrams fire array
formation come from? Thin air? And it was also one of the incomparably
complex and esoteric ancient arrays!

li_gh_tnove_lwo_rld.com“There truly is no limit in this universe, there
is always someone higher! I was truly a frog in a well, average,
mediocre!” Ancestor Chi Yan looked to the skies and deeply sighed. The
eight trigrams fire array formation ripped open again, leaving a gap the
size of a person. Then, he turned around and walked inside, as if he were
in a trance.
Lin Ming paused, hesitant, and then entered the eight trigrams fire array
formation, following Ancestor Chi Yan.
“Lin Ming, your master taught you about ancient array formations?” Mu
Qianyu was able to slowly come to terms with this unthinkable truth after
a long time. This was much more stunning than Lin Ming absorbing the
Purple Flood Dragon Divine Thunder with a trivial Bone Forging
As soon as Lin Ming heard this question, he felt a bit awkward. He
didn’t want to lie to Mu Qianyu, but since things had already come
this, he had to continue lying. “I don’t know what an ancient array
is. What Master taught me, I studied and learned. The truth is that I
cannot arrange any array formation, I only know some superficial
If he wanted to arrange such a large-scale array formation, Lin Ming
would need at least a cultivation at the Revolving Core realm. Lin Ming
naturally didn’t have this ability.
Mu Qianyu hadn’t thought that Lin Ming would have such a master. If Lin
Ming’s master was at the Xiantian realm, then she wouldn’t be
surprised. After all, the talent that had emerged within Lin Ming really
made one think that he wasn’t some common mortal martial artist. But
hearing Ancestor Chi Yan’s depressed words, Lin Ming’s master might
even have a high chance of being a Supreme Elder who had flown into the
Realm of the Gods!
This sort of character could call himself an emperor if he wished. Within
Sky Skill Continent, he would be the king of kings, the highest possible
If Lin Ming had such a master, then why wouldn’t he follow him into the
Holy Lands to lead a saintly cultivating life? Why would he join the
small Seven Profound Valleys?
Mu Qianyu was puzzled.
Or maybe, his master had already flown into the Realm of the Gods?

two followed Ancestor Chi Yan to his residence, it was a cave mansion
that was located in the center of the fire array formation. Perhaps
because it had been roasted by the fire origin energy for a long time,
the walls of the cave mansion had already been burned into a deep ruby
The inside of the cave mansion was filled up with piles upon piles of
miscellaneous goods. There were array flags, array formation jade slips,
array discs, and all sorts of other treasures. There were even two wooden
puppets – these were probably the servant puppets that handled Ancestor
Chi Yan’s daily needs.
Seeing all this, Lin Ming could imagine that if someone were to live here
daily, only concentrating on array formations and watching these dead
puppets day in and day out, even the most normal and well-adjusted of
individuals would have mental issues.
“You will stay here today. This old man’s mood is no longer suitable
for forging a spear. Tomorrow, I shall fire up the furnace! What this old
man has said will not change. I take back the rude words I said, and also
apologize to this Little Brother! I will even put up some of my own
collection of refining materials as an apology gift to make amends.” As
Ancestor Chi Yan said this, he took out a hand sized lump of dark purple
metal from his spatial ring and laid it on the table.
The metal in his palm was only the size of a hand, but when it bore down
on the table, the table seemed as if it would fall apart at any time.
Lin Ming’s eyes brightened. This dark purple, almost black whatever it
was had to be much heavier than dark purple elastic iron or even heavy
profound soft silver. Not only that, but he could feel a thick energy
emitting from the dark purple metal that caused his heart to race. In the
dim light of the cave, he could see the air around the dark purple metal
twisting, as if it were distorted.
Before, Ancestor Chi Yan had said that if Lin Ming could point out flaws
in his fire array formation, then he would immediately apologize and help
Lin Ming forge his spear.
Ancestor Chi Yan had an extremely stubborn and unruly temperament; it was
extremely difficult for him to lower his head and apologize to anyone.
Lin Ming hadn’t thought that he would not only apologize, but also
offer up materials from his own collection. The value of materials that
Ancestor Chi Yan would collect could be imagined!
“Is this… Purple Comet?”
Mu Qianyu was bewildered as she looked as this lump of dark purple metal,
not daring to be positive in her guess. Because Mu Qianyu had had contact
with Ancestor Chi Yan many times, she also had a deep understanding of
many different types of refining materials. Purple Comet was a material
that was enough to forge a top high-grade earth-step treasure. Or, if it
was purified enough, Purple Comet could even create a heaven-step
The most up-to-date novels are published on li_gh_tnove_lwo_rld.com
A heaven-step treasure was a priceless object that would often only be
used by emperors who were peerless powerhouses!
If the Purple Comet was used in addition to the Violet Electricity Spirit
Bamboo and Sacred Flame Parasol Tree, then the grade of Lin Ming’s
spear might even surpass that of her own Vermillion Bird Sword!
The Vermillion Bird Sword was one of the twin Ice and Fire Swords of
Divine Phoenix Island, and also one of the holy treasures of her sect.
How could Mu Qianyu not be startled!
“Good. This is exactly Purple Comet. In my life, I have no plans to try
and soar up to the Realm of the Gods, that is too remote a possibility
for me. My ultimate goal is to forge a heaven-step treasure, and carve my
name so it spreads through history. That is why I collect all the
materials I can that can forge a heaven-step treasure. This piece of
Purple Comet is too small to make a heaven-step treasure, but it’s just
right for me to forge a spear for you.”
“Senior Chi Yan, this is…” Lin Ming didn’t know what to say. Such
a material was extremely precious, even to someone like Ancestor Chi Yan.
He didn’t think that not only would the old man apologize, but he would
also take out such a precious material. This old man was serious in
keeping each and every one of his promises!
Ancestor Chi Yan gave a deep sigh and slowly said, “My path of refining
is just like your path of martial arts. I said that if you can point out
the flaws in my array formation, then I will apologize and forge a spear
for you. Otherwise, I would cut off your tongue and waste your martial
“Since I wanted to destroy your martial arts, then I naturally have to
pay an equal price!”
As Ancestor Chi Yan said, he had already subconsciously placed Lin Ming
on the same level as himself. A peerless master like himself was actually
talking to someone like an ant about equality. No matter if it were Lin
Ming’s master or his terrifying perception of the Dao of array
formations, Ancestor Chi Yan could see that 100 years from now, Lin Ming
would become a peerless powerhouse of his generation.
Lin Ming sighed. Although Ancestor Chi Yan truly did have an eccentric,
unreasonable, and sometimes cruel temperament, his heart of martial arts
was actually incomparably firm and pure. Someone with such faith in their
own beliefs could often walk further down the path of martial arts.
In truth, this kind of person was worth respecting a great deal. Thinking
this, Lin Ming said, “Senior Chi Yan, about Senior’s eight trigrams
fire array formation, junior has some opinions. I can offer some humble
words in the hope that Senior may be inspired just a bit.”

li_gh_tnove_lwo_rld.com“Mm?” Ancestor Chi Yan’s eyes shined, his
voice beginning to pick up with excitement. Naturally, he couldn’t look
down on Lin Ming again. “What suggestions do you have? This old man is
listening with all ears!”
The eight trigrams fire array formation was one of his lifelines. In
order to forge a heaven-step treasure, one of the greatest constraints
was the flame itself. For instance, Purple Comet and other materials on
the same rank had to be purified enough to make a heaven-step treasure.
But to do this was much easier said than done. Even Ancestor Chi Yan
didn’t have the current ability to refine them to that extent.
Lin Ming said, “About the fire rune columns I mentioned before, the
fire rune columns can increase the power of flame, but it will also
dissipate the fire origin energy. But if three arc symbols were carved
into the fire rune columns at calculated distances, then the symbols
would be able to confine fire origin essence during rotation, reducing
the fire origin energy that dissipates. Of course, the problem is that
the arc symbols are easily worn out by fire origin energy, and would have
to be redrawn every three years.”
“Once every three years is not a problem!” Ancestor Chi Yan blurted
out in excitement. He was just too hyped up at the moment. He had deduced
the model in his mind, and it really would be viable!
