True Martial World - chapter-866
Luo Kui began. Although his opponent was trash, Luo Kui planned on doing
his best. There was no meaning in thrashing Yi Yun. Now, he was in the
pursuit of refining a relic that was nearing the outstanding grade, so he
could astound everyone present.
Luo Kui threw the Fey bone into the Eclipse Cauldron and he extracted all
the energy in one fell swoop!
Luo Kui’s body began to burn with blue flames, and behind him, a
gigantic, thousand-feet blue centipede shot towards the sky!
This centipede was more than a hundred feet tall as it charged straight
for the ceiling.
The Thousand-feet Demon Centipede was Luo Kui’s bloodline. After it
appeared, it shot towards Luo Kui’s Eclipse Cauldron!
Everyone was alarmed. Luo Kui was planning to refine his Ancient Fey
bloodline with the Fey bone?
Although everyone knew that it was impossible for Luo Kui to damage his
Ancient Fey bloodline to refine a single relic, it was still a stunning
sight for them when they saw him seal the Thousand-feet Demon Centipede
in the Eclipse Cauldron.
“That’s not the case.” At this moment, a Desolate Heaven Master spoke
out. “The Thousand-feet Demon Centipede is one of the rare insect-based
Ancient Fey. Its body is highly toxic. Ancient mighty figures would have
their bodies disintegrate and die if they were bitten once by it. The
Thousand-feet Demon Centipede usually likes to eat all sorts of treasured
herbs and poisons. Treasured herbs and Fey bones, which have many kinds
of medicinal essences and energies of differing types, or even opposite
types, can be refined in its body. It will allow the medicinal essences
to merge and be made usable by the Demon Centipede.”

“Hence, in ancient times, a Thousand-feet Demon Centipede was invaluable.
Just the amount of medicinal essence accumulated in its body would allow
a supreme-grade pill to be refined if it is used.”
With the Desolate Heaven Master’s explanation, everyone came to an
understanding. The Thousand-feet Demon Centipede could extract the energy
from all sorts of herbs and Fey bones that it devoured. So the reason why
Luo Kui had sent his Demon Centipede bloodline into the Eclipse Cauldron
was to aid him in refining a supreme-grade relic!
By using the Thousand-feet Demon Centipede, it would be half the work
with double the results!
“No wonder such a burly man like Luo Kui would choose to be a Desolate
Heaven Master, and waste his precious time cultivating. It’s all because
he has a Thousand-feet Demon Centipede!”
“Indeed, if the Thousand-feet Demon Centipede can help devour the Fey
bone and extract its energy, then it would not be a waste for him to be a
Desolate Heaven Master.”
As the people were engaged in a flurry of discussion, they felt a bit
jealous of him. With the Thousand-feet Demon Centipede helping him, Luo
Kui’s Desolate Heaven technique would definitely attain great success one
Furthermore, Desolate Heaven Masters enjoyed a high status in the Luo
clan. Many supreme figures from the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven
would frequently come to the Luo clan to buy a relic for a high price.
For example, the third Empyrean Uncle of the Luo clan, who had retired,
was a supreme level Desolate Heaven Master. He was a person that even if
Emperor Luo met him, he would respectfully bow with a junior’s greeting.
If it wasn’t for the third Empyrean Uncle retiring, to put it bluntly,
if he put his foot down, he could decide who the next Emperor of the Luo
clan would be. There was no need for any competition for the throne!

At this moment, Luo Kui threw another few pieces of bone fragments and
herbs into the Eclipse Cauldron.
After the supplemental herbs were added into the Eclipse Cauldron, its
lid immediately sealed it tight!
Some of the keen-eyed young elites present could tell at a glance that
the bone fragments and herbs that Luo Kui had thrown into the Eclipse
Cauldron were extraordinary items. Some of them were worth even more than
the third grade Fey bone that he had taken out.
The Fey bone supplements were higher in value than the main Fey bone!
From the looks of it, Luo Kui was determined to refine a supreme-grade
But in fact, using higher valued Fey bones as supplements to forcefully
upgrade a low-level relic’s grade was somewhat contrived. A truly
powerful Desolate Heaven Master would refine a low-level Fey bone into a
high-grade relic. Only then was there value in it.
However, that was too difficult. Luo Kui had only been practicing the
Desolate Heaven technique for about a decade after all. It was already
quite amazing for him to attain what he did.
“Luo Kui using so many supplemental Fey bones makes the competition
somewhat unfair. Yi Yun only used a single Fey bone and nothing else.”

“So what? This isn’t even a competition. It’s just an individual
performance by Luo Kui! I also know a little bit of the Desolate Heaven
technique. The disk array that Yi Yun is using is fully exposed.
Regardless of the seals he forms, I can see them clearly. Yi Yun’s seals
would not be able to refine any relics of a good grade, so it’s
impossible for him to win. Furthermore, his low-level seals aren’t even
considered perfect. As such, being able to refine that Fey bone itself
should be his limit. He would not be able to handle the adding of any
more supplemental Fey bones, so what’s so unfair about it?” A Desolate
Heaven apprentice spoke.
He did not speak without thinking.
Yi Yun may have talent in the Desolate Heaven technique, but his age was
less than half of Luo Kui’s. The profession of a Desolate Heaven Master
required the accumulation of time. Furthermore, Yi Yun had yet to fully
come into contact with the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven’s Desolate
Heaven technique, so the outcome was destined.
At this moment, even Luo Huo’er was feeling anxious.
She was certain that Yi Yun would not lose out. Since he dared to step
forward, there was something that was backing him. But now, with Yi Yun’s
relic being almost 70% refined, there was still not a single miracle!
Luo Huo’er was probably the most qualified person present to comment on
the competition. She was not only proficient in the Ten Thousand Fey
Empyrean Heaven’s Desolate Heaven technique, she was also proficient in
the lower realm’s Desolate Heaven technique. She obviously knew that with
the techniques being used by Yi Yun, the quality of the relics that he
refined would only be a ‘poor’ grade!
By using the most primitive methods to build a stone hut with a heap of
construction materials, there was no way that a top architect could
change it into a magnificent palace when the stone hut was nearing
As for Luo Kui, he was using a supreme-grade desolate heaven cauldron,
and with so many supplemental materials, as well as the Thousand-feet
Demon Centipede bloodline, Luo Huo’er estimated that the quality of the
relic Luo Kui would refine would be between ‘refined’ and ‘outstanding’.
The difference was like night and day.
Other than that, Luo Kui’s refining speed was faster than Yi Yun’s. Yi
Yun had only refined 70%, while Luo Kui had already refined 90%!
In less than three minutes, Luo Kui’s relic would be completed!
However, Luo Huo’er could tell that when the relic was nearing
completion, Luo Kui was beginning to have problems holding it together.
After all, he had used so many supplemental Fey bones, so it was
demanding on his mental strength. Imperfections began to appear in Luo
Kui’s seals, and these meant that the quality of his relic was going to
be at the ‘refined’ grade.
Seconds changed to minutes. Yi Yun formed one seal after another and he
proceeded in a prescribed routine, as though he was not worried at all.
At the same time, Yi Yun had already opened his energy vision. Others
could not see the situation inside the Eclipse Cauldron, but he could see
In the Eclipse Cauldron, the Thousand-feet Demon Centipede was at its
limits. It was not a true Thousand-feet Demon Centipede, after all, it
was only a bloodline that Luo Kui had conjured. After eating up too much
energy in one fell swoop, it could not digest it fully. As a result, its
body swelled up as though it was about to burst.
And at the same time, the energy seals that Luo Kui produced were brought
together. He was about to condensed them into a relic.
As Luo Huo’er said, these energy seals had their imperfections. It was
not easy for ordinary people to detect them, but Yi Yun could see them
very clearly. He could even tell how many imperfections there were
It was true that Yi Yun did not fully understand the Ten Thousand Fey
Empyrean Heaven’s Desolate Heaven technique, but with the Purple Crystal,
Yi Yun knew what the perfect form of energy should be.
The spots where the energies were imperfect accumulated and gradually
expanded in size. At the moment the relic took form, all of them would
merge instantly and reach their largest size. However, it would not
explode as it would be forcefully suppressed by Luo Kui’s relic-forming
hand seals. Finally, they would be left in the relic, and become the
relic’s energy ‘holes’, affecting the relic’s rating.

In fact, when Luo Kui was using a hand seal to forcefully merge the
energy seals together was the moment when the energy was most stable.
This was an immense challenge on Luo Kui’s mental strength, and it was
this reason that the relic formation was a critical stage when Desolate
Heaven Masters refined a relic. There could be no mistake.
At this moment, Luo Kui’s relic was nearing completion.
Hundreds of energy seals were already condensed by Luo Kui. The final
step was combining them together. He was in full concentration as his
forehead began sweating.
Although it was only a third-grade relic, by using so many supplemental
Fey bones, it was also an extremely big challenge for Luo Kui to produce
an outstanding grade relic. He was also reaching his limit. If not, he
would not have produced so many flaws on the energy seals towards the end.
Although it might have missed out on the outstanding grade by a hair, for
Luo Kui to obtain such results, it was already something that he could be
proud of. After all, despite having only cultivated for eighty years, his
strength was not only exceptional, he had also been able to divert some
attention onto the Desolate Heaven technique!
Luo Kui isolated himself from distractions as his remaining mental
strength was devoted into the Eclipse Cauldron, so he could control the
energy seal’s merger.
Hundred of energy seals began to emit beams as bright as the sun in the
Eclipse Cauldron. Just as it was about to merge as one…
A summoning force that no one could perceive mixed itself inside the
energy seals. This summoning force was without shape or form, as though
it was the Origin powers at the beginning of the Universe… Even Empress
Luo or Empress Xuan, much less Luo Kui, couldn’t sense it.

At this moment, nearly everyone’s attention was focused on Luo Kui’s
Eclipse Cauldron. No one paid Yi Yun any mind. Yi Yun was standing by the
side, condensing his energy seals while controlling the Purple Crystal.
He began to lightly ‘nudge’ the hundreds of energy seals.
Just this light nudge moved the most critical energy combination point.
It forcefully repressed many of the imperfects in the energy seals…
Instantly, it was like a spark dropping into an oil well. The delicate
balance of energy was broken.
Luo Kui, who was nearing his limits, was late by the time it took to
blink as he realized the nearly undetectable energy disturbance! Although
the time it took to blink was short, it was fatal for the critical moment
of relic formation.
Luo Kui widened his eyes as his pupils turned bloodshot. He bellowed as
all the power from his bloodline burned. The Thousand-feet Demon
Centipede in the Eclipse Cauldron opened its mouth wide and it tried to
devour the collapsing energy seals. It was trying to maintain the relic
at the risk of destroying the relic’s quality.
However, the Thousand-feet Demon Centipede was already severely bloated
and it was a spent force, so how could it succeed?
Yi Yun did not stand on ceremony as he controlled the Purple Crystal to
nudge a second energy combination point.
As such, the collapse of the energy could no longer be stopped!

A tumultuous explosion happened as the hovering Eclipse Cauldron
violently trembled. The cauldron’s lid was blown open and it heavily
slammed into the ceiling. It had smashed a brick on the ceiling into
A blazing blue fireball rose up into the sky. Luo Kui’s Thousand-feet
Demon Centipede bloodline’s phantom image was enveloped in the blue
fireball as it struggled in pain!
The Thousand-feet Demon Centipede bloodline was considered strong, but
with it being at its limits and being caught unaware, it had been
engulfed by the shock wave at a close distance. Furthermore, it was in a
sealed space in the Eclipse Cauldron, so the impact was imaginable!
Luo Kui, who was mentally linked to the Thousand-feet Demon Centipede,
grunted as he retreated backward and fell to the ground. His face was as
pale as a sheet of paper!
Two streams of black blood began to flow down from Luo Kui’s ears. This
was the most accurate portrayal of the Thousand-feet Demon Centipede’s
damage. The shock wave in an enclosed space had blasted through the
Thousand-feet Demon Centipede’s ears, causing it to be severely injured.
It would take him a few months to recover from these injuries.
The Eclipse Cauldron heavily slammed onto the ground as black ash spilled
out of it…

Luo Kui was battered out of his senses. His face was blank as he dully
looked at the rolling Eclipse Cauldron on the ground. He could not
believe his eyes.
The cauldron blew up? His refining of a relic had ended up in him blowing
up the cauldron…
At such an important occasion, Empress Luo, Empress Xuan, elites from all
over the world, and his future master, Prince Crimson Firmament, were all
present, but he blew up his cauldron! Luo Kui’s heart was palpitating!
The young elites present all widened their eyes. Some of them were not
even aware of the wine glasses that they had knocked over.
Luo Kui was just about to refine a relic that was a ‘refined’ grade at
the minimum in an ostentatious display of his prowess. But at the final
moment, he had blown his cauldron up.
As a result, he did not even have the poorest grade of a relic. It went
from a ‘refined’-grade relic to a pile of ash. This sudden change was too
Seeing Luo Kui look as though he had lost his soul, everyone knew that
this failure would deal a terrible blow to his confidence. In the future,
Luo Kui might even have a mental demon when he refined relics. He might
end up being afraid of all sorts of things, affecting his future
achievement in the Desolate Heaven technique.
The elites present, including Empress Luo and Empress Xuan, were stunned
by the blowing up of Luo Kui’s cauldron. However, there was one person
who was unaffected, and that was… Yi Yun!

As everyone recollected their thoughts, they saw that Yi Yun was still
controlling his crude disk array as he slowly refined a Fey bone relic.
His motions could only be described as leisurely. The speed at which he
formed seals did not seem like he was refining a Fey bone relic. Instead,
it could be described as him picking mushrooms in the wild.
On one side, one had blown up a cauldron, while the other looked relaxed.
This contrast was way too big…
However slow he was, Yi Yun had managed to finish the final seal as he
began to do the final relic formation.
Yi Yun’s relic formation technique was also nothing fancy. It was the
crudest relic formation technique from the lower realm. He had finished
it quickly, but it was simple and crude.
A gray relic rolled into Yi Yun’s hand from the disk array.
Some high-grade relics would be crystalline upon after refinement, but
the relic that Yi Yun refined did not look good, as though there were
impurities within it. Furthermore, its quality rating did not go beyond
its appearance. It was truly consistent in and out.
Quality evaluation — Poor.

When Yi Yun held the relic, he noticed that there was a bit of ash on its
surface. Using his sleeve, he nonchalantly wiped it and placed it on the
maid servant’s tray, and motioned for her to hand it to Empress Luo.
“Your Majesty, this lowly one’s relic has been completed. This lowly one
has only been exposed to the Desolate Heaven technique for four to five
months after all. It’s quite nice to produce such a poor-quality
third-grade relic. Now, this lowly one wants to present it to Her
Seeing the maidservant hand the gray relic to Empress Luo, everyone
present was dumbfounded. Their eyes were fixated on the relic as they
could not turn their gazes away.
Holy shit, what was going on? Don’t tell me that Yi Yun has won!?
Many people began to come to this realization. On one side, one had blown
his cauldron up, while the other side had refined a poor grade relic, but
at least he had completed it.
At this moment, Prince Crimson Firmament felt as though his heart was
being trampled upon by a million Ancient Fey beasts with mud-stained
He felt like he was a super retard. He had played a secondary role with
the retard, Luo Kui, in a super humorous silly play. Unexpectedly, he
would become the laughing stock of the royal capital in the next few days.
As for Yi Yun, this fellow, who looked like he was low on his
intellectual quotient, had become the final victor.

“Quite nice to produce such a poor-quality third-grade relic… ”
Thinking back to Yi Yun’s words, Prince Crimson Firmament wanted to slam
his head into a wall. This fellow, who looked like he had a screw loose,
had actually won!?
Or was this punk acting the pig? However, Prince Crimson Firmament had a
few thousand years of cultivation at least. He had been focused on the
competition from beginning to end. He did not feel that Yi Yun had
secretly done something — how could he have that ability!?
A pearly laughter was suddenly heard. Luo Huo’er had burst out into
She was a person with a child’s temperament and she was never serious, to
begin with. She had forcibly put on an elegant look for this banquet. How
could she tolerate it when she truly encountered such an interesting
Seeing many people looking at her, especially with Prince Crimson
Firmament looking as though his mother had died, Luo Huo’er quickly gave
a dry cough and dabbed her mouth with a handkerchief. Again, she put on a
However, the more she behaved this way, the more depressed Prince Crimson
Luo Huo’er holding back her laughter and pretending to be serious was the
greatest travesty against him. This was because he felt that Luo Huo’er
was mocking him.

“Prince Crimson Firmament, I… I can’t accept it!”
At this moment, the dispirited Luo Kui suddenly got up. How could he
accept it? From his point of view, an unpredictable problem had happened
when he was combining the seals. It had caused him to blow his cauldron
and give Yi Yun a free win. “Just one more time. One more time and I will
be able to refine a top grade relic!”
After Luo Kui said this, Prince Crimson Firmament’s expression turned
even uglier. Luo Huo’er laughed and said, “Luo Kui, it was you who said
it yourself. You have failed to refine a third-grade relic, so what
qualifications do you have to continue competing? This time, you poked a
hole through the roof, if you are given another chance, are you going to
demolish this place?”
Luo Huo’er played with her handkerchief and spoke without sparing his
feelings. The Luo Lucid Palace was not meant to be an area for the
refinement of relics. It was not indestructible. When the cauldron blew
up, it had shattered a brick.
Author’s note: This is a 5100 character chapter, and it can be considered
to be a big chapter. It’s to slightly make up for the chapter that I
missed when I had the flu.
