True Martial World - chapter-231
A cold breeze blew through the Tai Ah Divine City deep into the night.
The Tai Ah Divine City was covered in snow once again.
It had snowed twice during the past few days of the rookie ranking
In a city like the Tai Ah Divine City, it had layers upon layers of
arrays. Once the arrays were initiated, they would allow the whole city
to experience the warmth of spring throughout the entire year. However,
this was a great waste of energy and there was no reason to do so. The
Yuan Qi gathered within the Tai Ah Divine City arrays were instead
supplied to the warriors for cultivation.
Yi Yun walked along the streets. Every time he stepped onto the snow, the
compacted snow would tremble and make a crunching sound.
There were rows of houses with unsophisticated ambiences on both sides of
the street .
Yi Yun kept on recalling the battles that happened in the day.
There was no doubt that both Chu Xiaoran and Qiuniu possessed outstanding
capabilities. Most importantly, they each had their own characteristics
Chu Xiaoran had gained insight into a law, while Qiuniu had his strong

strong that they made others feel helpless to the point of losing
Of course, Yi Yun was not lacking in confidence. Chu Xiaoran and Qiuniu
may be strong, but Yi Yun still had the ‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’.

But the problem was…
The ‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’ could not be considered a strength of
The ‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’ was strong and the warriors who
mastered the ‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’ could easily beat warriors
with average cultivation techniques. They could even battle people who
were a few levels above them and it would still be as easy as eating and

The ‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’ could suppress others through its
absolute power. But if they were to face someone who also cultivated the
‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’, or someone whose ‘Tai Ah Sacred
Technique’ level was higher than their own, such as Qin Haotian, then
they would lose all the advantages that the ‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’
gave them. What mattered then would be a competition amongst their other
The other aspects included competing in terms of strength, laws, speed or
What was his competitive advantage? What did he have that allowed him to
beat Qin Haotian?
He would most likely lose even at the same level!
Yi Yun suddenly realized that his battle power was far too weak. Besides
the ‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’ and the large success stage of Minute
Subtlety, he had no other competitive advantages.

Yi Yun had great ambition. If a typical warrior were to master the
legendary ‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’ in a short period of time, they
would be so excited that they would lose themselves, but Yi Yun felt that
it was still insufficient. He needed to strengthen every aspect of
himself. He wanted to be an all-rounded person without any weaknesses!
Such as… Saber techniques!
Yi Yun’s saber techniques had always been weak. In fact, he had no
saber techniques at all.
The Saber moves that were derived from the ‘Nine Mysterious Swords of
Heaven’ technique were nothing in front of an expert.
With this thought in mind, Yi Yun started walking towards a new
direction. He stopped in front of a palace after walking down the street
for fifteen minutes.
He looked up and saw the three meters wide plaque that was hanging on top
of the palace entrance and on that plaque were three large words –
Sword Scar Palace!
These three words were sharply written and they contained an aura. With
just a glance, it was obvious that it was written by a master.
Yi Yun had long since heard about the Sword Scar Palace. He always wanted
to pay a visit to it. This was the best place for the cultivators of the
Tai Ah Divine City to increase their compatibility with their weapons.
It cost 1000 dragon scale runes, just like the Wilderness Divine hall, to
enter the Sword Scar Palace for two hours.

To the present Yi Yun, a thousand dragon scale runes was nothing. After
paying, Yi Yun entered the palace.
The palace was not large. There were large rectangular stones in it.
These large stones were Immutable Ancient Rocks and they were produced in
the Divine wilderness. Whatever was carved on such rocks could not be
erased, even if they were to be exposed to the elements of nature for
millions of years.
On the walls around the Immutable Ancient Rocks, there were all sort of
scar marks. These scars were left behind by the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom’s
sages. There were sword scars, saber scars, claw marks and even fist
No matter what the weapon was, you could find the corresponding mark
within the Sword Scar Palace. The assault abstraction* of the attackers
were left behind within these scars.
One came to the Sword Scar Palace to gain insight into these concepts.
As Yi Yun was beginning to gain some insights, he caught sight of someone
through the corner of his eye.
It was a thin, little old man. His hair and beard were messy, but the
most amazing thing about him was the blood-red gem embedded in between
his eyebrows. It sparkled under the everlasting lamps in the hall.
The old man was wearing a large gray robe. He was comfortably reclining
on a lounge chair and his eyes were half-squinted, as if he was almost
falling asleep due to the comfort.
There was a plate containing crystal-like grapes on a table beside him.

The little old man would occasionally reach out to pick up a grape lazily
and put it in his mouth. He looked like he was enjoying himself a lot.
“Senior, you are also here?” Yi Yun was surprised. He had seen this
old man before. The blood red gem in the middle of the old man’s
eyebrows had left a deep impression on Yi Yun.
Back when Yi Yun went to the Wilderness Divine Hall to absorb the
primordial species’ energy, he had met this old man when he came out of
the divine hall. He had attacked Yi Yun without any warning, and had
defeated him with one move. He had even reprimanded Yi Yun, telling him
how terrible his saber skills were.
Back then, this little old man had recommended Yi Yun to go to the Sword
Scar Palace. And when Yi Yun really came here, he did not expect to run
The old man opened his eyes and glanced at Yi Yun. He laughed and said,
“Kid, you finally thought of my place?”
“Paying my respects to the senior.” Yi Yun cupped his hands and
bowed. “I’m here to gain insights from the sage saber scars.”
“Saber scars? Hehe!” The old man plucked another grape and threw it
into his mouth. He shook his head and said, “Gaining insight from saber
scars… Do you know where the deepest saber scar abstractions are in the
Sword Scar Palace?”
Yi Yun shook his head after being questioned by the old man, “I do
The old man chuckled, as if he had predicted Yi Yun’s answer. He said,
“Let me take you to a good place. I guarantee you that it will be
extremely beneficial to you!”

Hearing the old man’s words, Yi Yun was overjoyed. It could not get any
better with someone giving him pointers.
“Thank you, Senior.”
“Heh, it’s no big deal!” The old man waved his hand, before
suddenly remembering something, “Right…”
The old man stretched his right hand before Yi Yun and pinched his thumb
and index finger. He gave a wretched-looking smile, “Did you bring
enough dragon scale runes? The place I am taking you to will charge an
Yi Yun hesitated for a while before smiling, “I have brought enough.”
Charging more dragon scale runes? That was nothing!
Yi Yun had over a 100,000 dragon scale runes. There were not many places
that he could not enter in the Tai Ah Divine City.
All Yi Yun cared about was the best cultivation resources. He paid no
heed to the price.
“Oh… That’s good!” The old man looked relieved and said, “The
place I’m taking you to will need an additional 10,000 dragon scale
runes, and at the same time… you will need to pay a glory point. You
should still have a glory point left, right? By handing over the
primordial herb, you must have received plenty of rewards?”

The old man grinned as he asked Yi Yun. When Yi Yun heard this, he froze
10,000 dragon scale runes… and an additional glory point!
He could not have heard wrongly!
Although he paid no heed to price and only wanted the best, this fee was
This was robbery!
Looking at the old man with his wretched smile, Yi Yun felt a chill. This
old bastard looked like an old swindler. Was he cheating him!?
“Senior, did you make a mistake?” Yi Yun asked tactfully, “This
junior only needed two glory points to buy the ‘Tai Ah Sacred
The old man shook his head like a rattle, “How could I make a mistake?
This price is because a kid like you knows me and it is on account of our
friendship. If it were anyone else, they might not even enter with that
price! That place is not an ordinary place. After entering it, you will
definitely have great gains. As for buying the ‘Tai Ah Sacred
Technique’ with two glory points, that was just the first three
volumes. The fourth and fifth volume combined will need five glory
points. The prices of the last few volumes even increase at an
astonishing rate. Do you think that the entire ‘Tai Ah Sacred
Technique’ is cheap? So what about it? Are you going in? You can enter
that place and stay there for a whole day. You will regret it if you
The little old man began to tempt Yi Yun.
Yi Yun was in a dilemma. This old man looked like an old swindler. But as
an administrator of the Tai Ah Divine City, even if he did not have any
moral integrity, he still wouldn’t cheat a rookie, right?
Was it really worth the price?
10,000 dragon scale runes was not much, but a glory point… This was a
precious resource that the top-ranked experts in the Tai Ah Divine City
By needing to pay a glory point to enter, that meant that 99% of the
cultivators in the Tai Ah Divine City had absolutely no chance of
entering it once in their six years here!
Even the cultivators who earned a glory point might not be willing to
part with the glory point to gain entrance!
Yi Yun only had three glory points left. After breaking the herb-picking
record, he received two glory points, and one glory point left from the
“To be able to enter this training ground for a day, that’s
considered quite long. As for the rookie ranking competition, there are
still 7+ days left. In the next two days, no one would challenge me. I
won’t miss much if I don’t watch those matches…”
Yi Yun was tempted. He really wanted to take a look at such a place.

Even if he could not grasp anything, it was not like he could not afford
the loss of this glory point.
So, Yi Yun nodded saying, “Senior, please lead the way!”
“Hehe, swift and decisive!” The old man laughed as he patted Yi
Yun’s shoulders and gave a thumbs up. “Young man, you are really
Seeing the old man look as if he had fallen into money, Yi Yun became
increasingly skeptical. Did the old man get a cut from promoting this
mysterious training ground?
There was no way the Tai Ah Divine City would have such immoral rules,
As the old man was about to leave, with a thought, he took the bunch of
grapes from the plate and put it in his pocket. As he plucked it to eat,
he said to Yi Yun, “Follow this old me, I guarantee you that you will
not regret it!”
