True Martial World - chapter-244
Those who watched the match between Yi Yun and Chu Xiaoran were at a loss
for words on how to describe it.
The arena, that could hold thousands of people, had become so silent that
one could hear a pin drop.
Although they were also elites, when they compared themselves with Yi Yun
and Chu Xiaoran, they felt that there was a huge gap between them and
this duo. In front of this duo, they did not dare to refer to themselves
as elites. They felt more like they were ordinary people.
“Chu Xiaoran is frightening. It is a surprise that she hid so much of
her power. Not only does she have extraordinary perceptivity, she has
even formed Aspect Before Yuan. Even her battle tactics were
well-planned. She almost managed to corner Yi Yun!”
“That Yi Yun is also ridiculously strong. After receiving such a combo
attack, he was still able to handle Chu Xiaoran’s final attack, though
he did receive injuries…”
Yi Yun was now in the middle of the stage, his body covered with plenty
of bloody wounds. One could see that Yi Yun’s blood was in chaos, it
was most likely due to Chu Xiaoran’s Frost Qi entering his body!
In contrast, besides some messy hair and a bit of damage to her clothes,
Chu Xiaoran was not injured at all. Yi Yun’s final attack, Killing At
Its Core, had been suppressed by Chu Xiaoran’s “Azure Blue Frost Sea,
Chu Xiaoran held the absolute upper hand in the final blow!
The Saber Truth’s 32 Words were profound, allowing Yi Yun to touch the
genius of the saber truths, but… Yi Yun did not have enough time to
gain further insights into the saber truths.
No matter how heaven-defying the Saber Truth’s 32 Words were, Yi Yun
had gained far too little insight in them until now. His saber attack was
not as powerful as Chu Xiaoran’s final sword attack.

“Will Yi Yun… lose to Chu Xiaoran?”
Seeing this situation, Chu Xiaoran clearly had the advantage. Yi Yun was
already injured and he was still standing inside Chu Xiaoran’s ice
People looked forward to seeing either Chu Xiaoran’s unstoppable
stance, where she would use her advantage to defeat Yi Yun or Yi Yun
reversing the situation and obtaining victory with a counterattack.
As for what people were hoping for, no one expected what was to happen
next. Chu Xiaoran suddenly turned to the referee and sighed, “I admit
When Chu Xiaoran said this, the entire audience became stupefied.
Chu Xiaoran admitted defeat!?
She clearly had the upper hand. She had completely overwhelmed Yi Yun
with her final blow. Why did she admit defeat?!
Chu Xiaoran did not bother to explain and merely began walking off the
stage. Just as she was about to step off the stage, she turned around and
looked at Yi Yun.

“My loss to you today was due to my unrefined skills. In the future…
when I have consolidated my Aspect Totem, and when I am able to fully
control the ice forest array, I will battle you once more!” After
having said that, Chu Xiaoran walked straight to the arena’s exit.
She was leaving just like that!
People were shocked. What was going on? In what aspect did Chu Xiaoran
lose? Why did she admit defeat?
Was there something in the last move that they did not understand? For
example, did Yi Yun have the opportunity to take Chu Xiaoran’s life,
but because of the no killing rule, or because he had tender feelings for
women, he deliberately stayed his blade?
People began speculating.
Yi Yun and Chu Xiaoran’s strengths were stronger than a vast majority
of them. It was normal for them not to understand certain aspects of the
But amongst these speculations, someone disagreed.
The person who disagreed was a veteran cultivator, who was ranked in the
top 1000 of the Earth roll.
“It is none of those…” The person shook his head, “It’s
stamina! Chu Xiaoran had injected all of her Yuan Qi into her final
attack. It was her killing blow and her only attack. By not defeating her
opponent, she lost! The attack’s power may have been very strong, and
it had great understanding of the laws contained within it, but… as a
Purple Blood realm warrior, she had used the Aspect Totem that Yuan
foundation realm warriors use. This had already caused a great strain on
her Yuan Qi consumption. Not only that, she also formed the ice forest
array, which further increased her strength, but it also used more of her

“After using those techniques, it was already a miracle that Chu
Xiaoran could attack twice. But that was her limit. Chu Xiaoran must have
learned this move recently, so there would be many limitations to using
it…” Hearing the person’s explanation, people were dumbfounded.
Stamina! So that was it!
It made sense. That type of terrifying attack was definitely not one that
someone could use again and again.
“But… Yi Yun should also have been greatly drained! Chu Xiaoran spent
so much of her stamina, so there’s no reason why Yi Yun should have
that much more left…”
“Actually, there is a reason.” The person looked at Yi Yun and, after
some thought, he explained, “From the beginning of the match, Yi Yun
had been dodging most of the time. Thus, his energy consumption was far
less than Chu Xiaoran’s. Furthermore, Yi Yun did not use any moves that
greatly increased his battle power, so he would have more Yuan Qi than
Chu Xiaoran. Chu Xiaoran must have seen through this and felt that she
could no longer win if it dragged on, so she admitted defeat…”
Hearing this person’s explanation, everyone felt enlightened.
It was stamina that allowed Yi Yun to win!
He may have lost the final clash, but he had won in terms of stamina!
After all, stamina was a part of one’s strength. But compared to the
understanding of laws and concepts, as well as the cultivation techniques
one learned, stamina was secondary.

This was because, as a warrior’s cultivation level became higher, their
Yuan Qi would grow thicker, which would naturally increase their stamina.
As for cultivation levels, those were just a matter of time for the
But the understanding of laws and concepts, as well as the cultivation
techniques one learned, they were all different. This was a person’s
foundation. They determined a person’s martial arts attainment in the
The degree of a person’s talent was comprehensively determined by these
The talent Chu Xiaoran had with laws and totems, was the reason why many
found her terrifying.
“Chu Xiaoran, having just learned this move, was at a disadvantage for
not having it well-honed. In the future, when Chu Xiaoran ranks up,
solidifying her foundations and improving her understanding of the laws,
the result will be completely different when she then battles Yi Yun
again…” Someone said.
“It is possible. But Yi Yun is also not bad himself. Although he does
not have much in the understandings of laws, and cannot form an Aspect
Before Yuan, his saber is still really terrifying! Just with that saber,
he could slash through anything!”
In this rookie ranking competition, Yi Yun had only slashed his saber a
few times. But each slash he produced shocked the hearts of many!
When the saber beam flared, even at tens of meters away, they would feel
as if the beam was close by!
Everyone agreed to what was said. But someone still shook his head,
“Saber truths are just killing moves. It may be strong, and it could
kill someone mercilessly, but just killing moves aren’t much compared
to a person’s cultivation techniques and concepts! It is not the
foundation of a warrior!”
“If Yi Yun is not impressive in other aspects, many cultivators will
slowly catch up with him! Just his saber moves alone will not allow him
to last long in the Tai Ah Divine City. ”
“Amongst the veteran cultivators, Qin Haotian, who is excellent in the
way of the sword, doesn’t fully rely on his sword alone.” The person
who said this was a veteran cultivator. In the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom,
people had always weighed cultivation techniques over attack moves.
This was because a person’s cultivation technique could allow one to go
far. Attack moves however, just allowed one to shine amongst people of
the same level. If one could not raise one’s level in the future and
then not become a sage, then no matter how strong their attack moves
were, their lifespan would be shorter than others. So what was the point
to it then?
This was something that most people present understood.
Yi Yun’s saber moves were strong, while Chu Xiaoran was good at laws
and aspects. But, relatively speaking, people were more optimistic about
Chu Xiaoran’s future.
Perhaps, in four years time, the number one person on the Heaven and
Earth rolls would be Chu Xiaoran.
Even in her last battle against Yi Yun, many people felt that Chu Xiaoran
did not deserve to lose. After all, in the final attack, Chu Xiaoran held
the absolute advantage. Also, Chu Xiaoran’s combo attack and the ice
forest array were stunning. She had only lost due to her lack of stamina.

The second last day of the rookie ranking competition had ended. Many
people were prepared to leave, but seeing the two Elders present, they
felt that it would be more polite to let the Elders leave first.
But on the seats of honor, Jian Ge and Cang Yan had no intentions of
Jian Ge had his head slightly bowed as if deep in thought, while Cang Yan
was stroking his beard. His eyes were moving around, with no way of
guessing what he was thinking about.
Although the last move Yi Yun made had been suppressed by Chu Xiaoran’s
sword, it still shocked them greatly.
The rookies and veteran cultivators in the arena did not know the
significance of this attack. Even some of the law-enforcers only had a

exaggerating terms, that one move had opened up the path of Yi Yun’s
The law-enforcers beside Cang Yan and Jian Ge did not move and stood
still as they saw that the Elders had no intentions of leaving.
Many cultivators glanced at the seats of honor. They did not know why the
two Elders were still sitting there. Would they review the battle?
But even after waiting for a long while, the two Elders still did
nothing. They could only decide whether they should leave or not.

“I don’t think so. Chu Xiaoran and Yi Yun have already fought, and
there is no more suspense left in the rankings. But… Chu Xiaoran and Yi
Yun might carry on challenging the higher ranking veteran cultivators?”
According to the rules of the rookie ranking competition, once the
rookies competed against one another, as long as one beat the other, the
winner would be ranked ahead of the loser. Even if Chu Xiaoran were to
exceed Yi Yun’s ranking on the Earth roll tomorrow, Yi Yun would still
be ranked first amongst the rookies.
There was no more suspense.
“Challenging veteran cultivators? It should also be an exciting match,
but… I can probably guess. As Yi Yun and Chu Xiaoran have similar
strengths, they should both rank somewhere around the top 2000!”
“2000? Probably. They might even enter 1900. I plan on watching
tomorrow’s matches. I want to see if they can enter the top 2000!”

People began to stand up as they planned to leave the arena. Yi Yun had
sheathed his Thousand Army Saber and he was also prepared to leave. He
had a lot to digest after today’s battle.
Chu Xiaoran may have lost to him, but she had still given him a lesson.
Chu Xiaoran taught Yi Yun that a battle could be fought in such a way.
The path of martial arts could be trained in this manner!
As Yi Yun was preparing to leave, he suddenly heard a familiar, but
wretched, Yuan Qi voice transmission, “Rotten rascal, aren’t you
going to say hello before you leave? Don’t you know courtesy, or how to
show your elders respect!?”
