True Martial World - chapter-378
When Yi Yun was in the Cloud Wilderness, he had trained together with Lin
Xintong, and when he saw Lin Xintong use the Desolate Heaven technique,
Yi Yun suddenly had the thought of becoming a Desolate Heaven Master.
Now, this thought was still rooted in Yi Yun’s heart. With the Desolate
Heaven technique, not only could it supplement his own cultivation, he
could also rely on the Desolate Heaven technique to earn resources.
Yi Yun had the Purple Crystal to control energy, so he enjoyed an
exceptional advantage in learning the Desolate Heaven technique.
However in the past two years, as Yi Yun was too weak, he had been busy
cultivating. He had only learnt a tiny bit of the Desolate Heaven
technique and he had put it mainly on hold.
Now, Yi Yun wasn’t simply thinking of messing up the Desolate Heaven
technique tea session. He also wanted to take this opportunity to learn
the Desolate Heaven technique properly. This would greatly aid his future
“Senior Su Jie, there’s only two months left till the tea session. I
want to learn the seal for controlling the Power of Desolates and the
forming of relics from you.”
“You want to learn these two in two months? You think you are learning
Pai Gow?” Su Jie blinked with an expression of being defeated by Yi
Yun. “There are thousands of hand seal techniques, which one do you
want to learn?”
Yi Yun said, “I only want to learn two techniques. One that can control
the Power of Desolates and another used to form a relic.”
Yi Yun knew himself. Although his perception was good, it was unrealistic
for him to learn hundreds of hand seal techniques. Hence, Yi Yun had no
alternative but to give up on his first choice, so he chose two!
However, by choosing two techniques, there were several limitations.

As Su Jie had just said, a Desolate Heaven Master of a certain caliber
would grasp at least a hundred techniques at the beginning.
Just like a good cook, one could not just have one method of cooking like
Different dishes would made in different ways.
There were stir-frying, quick-frying, deep-frying, blanching, smoking,
pickling, etc! One had to choose the most suitable cooking method for
It was the same with the Desolate Heaven technique. If a Desolate Heaven
Master’s hand seal techniques were too uniform, then he would face
For example, some sealing techniques were only suitable for desolate bone
relics of the lowest grade. The method was simple, consumed little of
one’s mental strength, fast and it had a good success rate. However,
against powerful Power of Desolates, this sort of sealing techniques
could not control it at all and they were unuseable.
To refine high-grade desolate bone relics, one had to use more advanced
techniques. These techniques were complex, slow and they extremely
consumed one’s mental strength. Even a good Desolate Master would have
to rest after using this technique as it was too draining.
And if this technique was used for refining low-quality desolate bone
relics, it would be overkill.
There were other sealing techniques that were suitable for particular
elemental energies, for example, some were suitable for fire, and others

If the elemental property was matched, the sealing technique would result
in double the results with half the effort. The success rate would also
In conclusion, if one wanted to refine high-grade, the sealing technique
was more complex and difficult to learn. The more techniques a Desolate
Heaven Master had, the more flexible he could be when refining a desolate
bone relic. Sometimes, they could combine several techniques to refine a
relic. And it was up to the preference of the Desolate Heaven Master as
to which technique to use.
If a sealing technique was chosen well, it was already half the battle
Since Yi Yun had already made his choice of choosing two techniques, he
could only have one each for the Power of Desolates sealing and the
forming of relics.
Then, there were a few features the two techniques needed.
First, they had to be widely applicable, and they could not be narrowed
to a single elemental energy. They had to be able to be used for all
kinds of elemental energies.
Secondly, these two techniques had to be applicable for the refinement of
high-grade desolate bone relics. For the current Yi Yun, low-grade
desolate bone relics were no longer useful.
Finally, the two techniques could not be too complicated. If they could
not be learnt in two months, then they would be useless.
Yi Yun had a good amount of understanding of the Desolate Heaven
technique, so before he asked Su Jie if he could learn the Desolate
Heaven technique from him, he had already thought of the techniques he
wanted to learn.

“Senior Su Jie, the two techniques I want to learn are, the Mystic
Crystal Hand sealing technique for the controlling of the Power of
Desolates, as well as, the Small Thousand Seal for the forming of
These two techniques had met Yi Yun’s requirements.
Not only could they be used to refine high-grade desolate bone relics,
they were also easy to learn and widely applicable.
Since these two techniques had such features, it meant that they
weren’t some extraordinary method.
It was easy to learn the techniques, then correspondingly, the success
rate of these two techniques were very low.
And since they were widely applicable, in the Desolate Heaven technique
circles, it meant that they were not specialized for anything.
The Desolate Heaven technique focused on specialization. Every elemental
energy had a corresponding technique. For the Mystic Crystal Hand and
Small Thousand Seal, they were actually common techniques that could be
easily found on the street. Any Desolate Heaven Master who had certain
accomplishments in the Desolate Heaven technique would never bother to
Even the young Desolate Heaven Master disciples, who had outstanding
talent, would not look up to such a one size fits all approach.
Only some Desolate Heaven Masters from small family clans or small sects
would haphazardly refine desolate bone relics, which would be a treasure,
for the disciples of these small sects. In such a situation, their
Desolate Heaven technique did not need to be great, nor did they have
much talent. As such, they would choose to learn easy and low-grade

Despite hearing Yi Yun’s choice which “lacked ambition”, Su Jie
found Yi Yun’s choice wise.
Everyone knew that advanced techniques were good, but so what? It was
only meaningful if one could learn it. It was pointless if one could not
It was like everyone knew being a Great Emperor was good, but if anyone
said they wanted to become a Great Emperor when they began learning
martial arts, they would probably be thought of as crazy.
With Yi Yun’s foundation, the Mystic Crystal Hand and Small Thousand
Seal would be relatively difficult for him. Even learning it would be
However… even if Yi Yun mastered the Mystic Crystal Hand and Small
Thousand Seal, there would be no hope in him joining the Desolate Heaven
technique tea session.
In the tea session, everyone would show off their skills by choosing the
most complicated and most difficult techniques.
If one used the Mystic Crystal Hand or Small Thousand Seal, that would
cause the stomachs of others to rupture from laughing.
“Senior Su Jie, how about it? After all, you have taken me in as your
in-name disciple. I’m just learning two techniques from you…”
As Yi Yun spoke, Su Jie rolled his eyes at him, “Only now do you
remember that you are my in-name disciple? Forget it. I find you pitiful,
so it’s nothing teaching you two sealing techniques. In the future, if
you were to leave the Lin family and live on the streets, this would also
be a means of livelihood, right?”

Yi Yun turned speechless hearing Su Jie say such words.
Living on the streets? It shouldn’t be that terrible even if he was
forced to leave the Lin family, right…?
“Alright, I can teach you, but let me warn you in advance. Forget about
the Desolate Heaven technique tea session! At that time, I’ll take you
to broaden your horizons. As for showing off your techniques, don’t
throw my face. I still care about my old face, and I want to mess around
in the Desolate Heaven technique circles in the future.”
“If you were to demonstrate these two techniques that can be found on
the streets, the tortoise grandsons of the Shen Tu family clan would all
die from laughing. Although you are my in-name disciple, an in-name
disciple is still a disciple. Everything you do represents me, do you
Su Jie earnestly exhorted to Yi Yun. In fact, he felt that Yi Yun had
only come into contact with the Desolate Heaven technique for a short
period of time and he did not know how difficult the Desolate Heaven
Yi Yun would know the difficulty once he taught him the two techniques.
As for the tea session, the Desolate Heaven Masters and geniuses would
gather to flaunt their techniques. What they showed would be dazzling and
too much for the eye to feast on.
Flaunting of one’s skills was not about what the best technique was but
it was about what the hardest technique was!
At that moment, Yi Yun will see the gap between the geniuses and himself.
He would probably then realize how childish his ideas originally were.

As long as Yi Yun’s mind was right, then he would not go on stage to
He had a feud with Shen Tu Nantian, wouldn’t he be mad to end up a
clown in front of Shen Tu Nantian?
“Thank you Senior Su.”
Yi Yun was delighted. There was no doubt in Su Jie’s Desolate Heaven
technique level. So with his teachings, it would be double the results
with half the effort.
“As for disguising your looks…” Su Jie stroked his chin and said,
“It’s too difficult to use disguises to bluff the old monsters from
the Shen Tu family clan. However, there is a very simple method and that
is to wear a mask.”
“There are many rare materials in this world that can completely cut
off perception. Even an Empyreal King will not be able to sense anything.
And I happen to have such a mask.”
“As for changing your voice, that’s even easier. Just change the tone
of your voice.”
Some old monsters who had unfathomable cultivation levels could easily
see through disguises. However, one could change one’s tone to change
their voice. No matter how strong one was, they could not guess what the
original voice of the person was after he changed his tone, as the two
were completely unrelated.
“That’s great.” Yi Yun said happily. Wearing a mask was nothing
strange. In a warrior’s world, there were plenty of people with habits
that were different to others.

Furthermore, Shen Tu Nantian would definitely not guess that he had come
to the Tian Yuan world and participated in the Desolate Heaven technique
“Then Senior Su Jie, without further ado, if you have time now, please
teach me the Mystic Crystal Hand technique and Small Thousand Seal
As there was only two months left, time was precious, so Yi Yun naturally
had to grab every opportunity.
Su Jie pinched his beard as if irritated, “Alright. I’ll teach you
these two techniques. My time is precious!”
