True Martial World - chapter-230
Bai Mingwu’s face turned red. After all these years, taking part in
numerous battles, big and small, he had never encountered such a
situation. It was absolutely shameful.
This Qiuniu’s methods were unpredictable!
Bai Mingwu grit his teeth. With an abrupt slip of his hands, he moved
down the polearm’s shaft towards Qiuniu!
By circulating the “Mystic Jade Heart Sutra”, all of his Yuan Qi was
now concentrated within his feet!
He aimed for Quiniu’s head as he kicked out with his feet!
Bai Mingwu had pretty good leg techniques.
However, all Qiuniu did was sneer before raising his shield.
Bai Mingwu’s feet landed heavily on the shield. The Yuan Qi from the
“Mystic Jade Heart Sutra” burst out, causing Bai Mingwu’s feet to
turn numb. However, it did not affect Qiuniu at all. The thick and heavy
shield was like a solid metal wall, warding off all sorts of attacks!
Bai Mingwu felt helpless. He had used his polearm to attack Qiuniu, but
it was blocked by Qiuniu’s shield. The same happened when he used his

After blocking Bai Mingwu’s strike, Qiuniu smiled. With his right hand
pulling on the polearm, and his left hand holding his shield, his body
suddenly jerked forward.
With a loud clang, Bai Mingwu’s entire body was sent flying by
Qiuniu’s shield bash!
His body tumbled a few times in the air before he landed. The great
impact had caused him to take more than ten steps backwards before he
managed to steady his body again. The blood flowing within his body was
now in chaos.
He pressed his hand against his chest and looked over at Qiuniu. Qiuniu
was still standing in his original spot. In fact, throughout the whole
battle, Qiuniu had not moved more than just a few steps.
As Bai Mingwu was sent flying backwards, his polearm was still in
His weapon had been taken away!
There was no way of describing what thoughts were going through Bai
Mingwu’s mind. He had only used one move during this battle. After his
weapon was grabbed by his opponent, he could not take it back and now he
was in this embarrassing situation.

It was too aggravating.
There were still a lot of moves he did not get the chance to use.
However, all of these moves required the polearm. Without his weapon, his
battle prowess would drop greatly, leaving him with just his leg
He still had a low quality polearm in his interspatial ring.
But, not only was that polearm unable to bring out his greatest
potential, the crux of the matter was that Qiuniu might take that polearm
He did not have any methods of preventing Qiuniu from taking away his
weapon. If he lost another one, it would be too embarrassing!
Standing before Qiuniu, Bai Mingwu was now in a dilemma.
Qiuniu was wearing a heavy armor and he had a huge shield. It was
impossible for Bai Mingwu to break those apart with just his fists and
“Your polearm… I’m returning it to you!” As Qiuniu said that, he
casually weighed the polearm in his hand. Following that, he grabbed the
polearm and slightly leaned back, his right foot on the ground, while
lifting his left foot.
“Ha!” Qiuniu shouted out, and as his left foot landed, his right arm
sent the polearm flying!

The heavy polearm let out an ear-piercing screech that sounded like an
explosion. The polearm flew through the air, flying straight at Bai
With Qiuniu’s strength, the polearm’s speed was now completely
Bai Mingwu constricted his pupils. Facing his weapon, which was now
flying straight at him, he… did not dare to try and grab it!
At the moment the polearm was about to strike Bai Mingwu, he gritted his
teeth and used his movement technique to dodge it.
With a loud metallic clang, the polearm embedded itself into a purple
tungsten protective wall beside the Divine Wilderness Stage.
The three foot thick purple tungsten wall tremored from this huge impact.
Even the tiles on the ground trembled!
The polearm was also vibrating non stop!

Upon seeing this, many were at loss for words. Qiuniu’s strength was
Bai Mingwu stood on the stage with a pale face. He really did not know
what to do!
Did he really need to run down the stage to pick up his polearm?
Not only was it embarrassing, but even after retrieving the polearm, he
was not confident in his ability of beating Qiuniu. Also, what if Qiuniu
attacked him as he retrieved the polearm?
After his deliberating, Bai Mingwu had to admit that he had lost the
moment Qiuniu grabbed his polearm.
He was inferior!
Gritting his teeth, Bai Mingwu shook his head and said, “I admit
He was not a sore loser. There was no point in resisting on stage when it
had already reached such a situation.
“Thank you!” Qiuniu cupped his hands.

Qiuniu won this battle!
People’s moods were indescribable seeing Bai Mingwu sadly walking down
the stage and him using all his strength to pull out his polearm.
This battle was quite ridiculous. Qiuniu’s battle strategy was quite
different from others, but it was extremely effective. Bai Mingwu had
been defeated by Qiuniu to the point that he conceded the battle on his
“Bai Mingwu admitted defeat… A person ranked in the 3900s on the
Earth roll was defeated by Qiuniu, just like that…”
“There’s no other way. The difference in strength was too great.
After his weapon was taken away, Bai Mingwu lost his confidence. If that
did not happen, Bai Mingwu could have fought another few more rounds. In
fact, upon reaching the Yuan foundation realm, a warrior’s connection
with his weapon would greatly increase. It wouldn’t reach the point of
easily having the weapon stolen.”
Once a warrior reached the Yuan foundation, or a realm beyond the Yuan
foundation, they could use their Yuan Qi to grow their weapons. They
could even keep their weapon inside of their Dantian, slowly nourishing
As such, it would not be easy to take away another person’s weapon.
But it was not impossible either. If someone was strong enough, they
could erase the opponent’s soul mark on a weapon and steal it.
“This Qiuniu sure is difficult to handle. Once he grabs your weapon,

Seeing Qiuniu’s attire, many felt powerless.
Qiuniu’s glove was also armored. He could easily grab other weapons as
well, such as sabers or swords!
If it was a low quality weapon, he could probably even snap it!
Not only that, Qiuniu’s defense was extremely perverse. With his body
covered in armor, together with that heavy shield, it was like he had a
thick tortoise shell. A weak attack would only be equivalent to
scratching an itch for Qiuniu!
As for Qiuniu’s attack power, it was irrefutable. When Qiuniu threw the
polearm at the end, Bai Mingwu did not even dare to grab it, even though
he was its owner. How could Qiuniu’s attack power be weak?
How could one handle him, when his defence and attacking power were that
strong and he could grab their weapons easily?
He was too difficult to handle!
Many of the veteran cultivators, who had spent 2-3 years in the Tai Ah
Divine City, placed themselves in Bai Mingwu’s shoes. If they had
fought Qiuniu, they had to admit that they would also lose!
“This batch of rookies sure is crazy… Now, it seems there’s an
extremely high chance Qiuniu and that Chu Xiaoran can enter the top 1000
within a year!” A veteran cultivator said with mixed emotions.

But another veteran cultivator shook his head, “You are exaggerating by
saying there is an extremely high chance. The top 1000 isn’t easy to
reach. It is basically the world of Yuan foundation realm cultivators
amongst the top 1000. Without being at the Yuan foundation realm, it will
be impossible to hold one’s ground! And if a rookie were to rise up
there, many veterans would pay close attention to him. Who would wish to
be lorded over by a rookie? At that point, there would be numerous
challengers wishing to pull you down. To establish yourself in the top
1000? It is difficult!”
Although this veteran cultivator was unwilling to admit that Qiuniu and
Chu Xiaoran could establish themselves in the top 1000 within a year, he
was very well aware of the fact that Qiuniu and Chu Xiaoran were absolute
monsters amongst monsters. Their potentials were no weaker than Qin
It was extremely rare for two such figures to appear in a single batch of
The fifth day of the rookie rankings ended. Qiuniu and Chu Xiaoran
performed outstandingly. Soon, the news of it spread throughout the Tai
Ah Divine City. Their names became famous, not only with the rookies,
even amongst the veteran cultivators circles.
All of the major factions began to pay close attention to Qiuniu and Chu
Xiaoran. However, it was impossible to draw them in. The two of them had
their own family clans and they were destined to serve their own families.
The cultivators in the Tai Ah Divine City debated about who amongst the
two was the strongest one.
Both of them had their own supporters and they expressed their views
based on inferences and conjectures. Their debates became very heated.
As such, some associations even opened up a betting pool, deciding who
amongst the two would win first place amongst the rookies.

The odds between the two were very close. However, Chu Xiaoran had
slightly more supporters. How could a beautiful girl be less popular than
a stout man?
With the betting pools opened, many had also included Yi Yun into them.
Yi Yun was compared to Gu Mu, who had shocked everyone on the fifth day
of the competition.
Yi Yun and Gu Mu were of similar backgrounds. They were both strong and
were dark horses before appearing on stage. Many were interested to know
who was the strongest one amongst the two.
“Haha, they are opening another betting pool! Brother Yi, I bought the
bet that you would win.” Zhou Kui said excitedly. During dinner time,
he found Yi Yun at the cook house. He had complete confidence in Yi Yun
and he felt that Yi Yun was sure to beat Gu Mu.
Yi Yun smiled without saying anything. He had watched all the matches in
the past five days. Gu Mu was indeed a noteworthy opponent, but he was
much worse than both Qiuniu and Chu Xiaoran.
Yi Yun paid special attention only to Qiuniu and Chu Xiaoran. Both of
them had their own specialities. Chu Xiaoran had techniques, while Qiuniu
had absolute strength. Both of them had powers that were on a completely
different level than the other rookies.
“How is it? Brother Yi, did you bet on yourself?” Zhou Kui asked

Yi Yun shook his head. He had previously heard about these betting pools.
Ever since the Hongdao Association suffered a great loss due to Yi Yun,
many of the associations learned their lesson. The bet limit was only up
to 500 dragon scale runes.
The odds against him beating Gu Mu was not very high. Together with the
high tax on gambling by the Tai Ah Divine City, there was nothing much to
be earned. Yi Yun could not be bothered to bet. Only poor rookies like
Zhou Kui would find interest in making a small gamble.
“Brother Yi, keep it up. Although the Tai Ah Divine City is only giving
away glory points and other cultivation privileges to the person in first
place, you will still be well rewarded at third place. Brother Yi, I look
up to you!”
