The World That Tao Rules – Chapter 92

Chapter 92 You Have The Best Opportunity

The manifestation of the heavenly warrior, like the sounds of Chop-Sky Sword, is a symbol and honor, representing the success of someone rushing through the peak.

Only, it was only just lit, while the time only went by ten seconds, there was someone successfully through it unexpectedly. This made all people in disbelieve.

It was known that after entering the Celestial Rune, every disciple would be confronted with a celestial warrior who was completely similar to himself in realm but had a stronger fighting power.

No matter what method you use, as long as you can withstand for one hour under the attack of this warrior, then you passed.

If you can’t hold on, or you choose to concede, you would be sent out of the formation.

Besides, if you want to get out of it successfully in advance, there is only one way to do it–to take the initiative and kill the warrior.

And this is an even more unimaginable thing, as the great power of the heavenly warriors are like a nightmare as heard from some of disciples who had fought them.

Now, however, there was someone who not only had killed the heavenly warrior successfully, but had also spent less than ten seconds to do so, which extremely shocked everyone.

As the silver light from the warrior was too strong at the moment, people could not clearly see the figure standing upon its head. But everyone actually knew that this figure should be Jiang Yun!

Lan ZhaoHua, who was in the sky, saw this matter clearly the most, and that also brought him the biggest impact. So much that a strong sense of regret uncontrollably gushed out from his heart once again.

‘Why didn’t I insist on it for a while and accept him as a disciple?’

It was indeed Jiang Yun who managed to break away from the Celestial and kill the heavenly warrior in less than ten seconds.

Not to mention the disciples and Lan HuaZhao, even Gu BuLao’s eyes suddenly burst into light when he saw Jiang Yun; there was a rare expression of shock on his face.

Obviously, even he did not expect that Jiang Yun could break through the Celestial Rune in such a short time!

As for Dao TianYou, he was completely dumbfounded, and he swallowed hard, “Even I might not be able to kill the warrior in such a short time as he did!”

This sentence was a reminder to Gu BuLao, he raised his eyebrows then restrained himself, sat down again and smiled: ‘What he is facing now is only a shadow!’

Dao TianYou dazed for a moment, but then he was enlightened: ‘I see!’

The warriors who appear in Celestial Rune will maintain the same realm as those who enter. However, the strongest cultivator who had entered it was only nine-level in Meridians Unclogged Realm in the history.

While Jiang Yun was eleven-level of Meridians Unclogged Realm!

However, the heavenly warrior …

The World That Tao Rules – Chapter 91

Chapter 91 The Strong Are Respected

The second day of rushing through the whole five peaks, before ringing of the bell in sect, the foot of Rune Peak was surrounded by a large number of disciples. They were not discussing about the upcoming test but instead about Jiang Yun.

‘The scene where Jiang Yun showed up yesterday, at the end, really shocked me! I didn’t expect that he would be the only one to complete that test!’

‘Now no one would doubt his strength; even if he was not ninth-level in Meridians Unclogged Realm six months ago, he must be now.’

‘I heard from the inner disciples that he did move on Chop-Sky Sword yesterday, but he didn’t use any sword. It’s strange as to why he would want to rush through the Fence Peak despite not being a swordsman?’

‘Does he wish to provoke Fang YuXuan and Lord Wei? By the way, I also heard that he seemed to have taken away the sword of Wang Jian and had previously robbed Zheng Yuan’s sword. Does he have the special hobby of grabbing others’ swords?’

While everyone was talking, a series of shouts came from a distance.

‘Brother Jiang Yun!’

‘Nice to see you, Brother Jiang!’

On hearing this, they looked up to the sound. Sure enough, they saw Jiang Yun in the distance, coming slowly, accompanied by the three of DongFang Bo.

Most of the disciples, whether outer or inner, would immediately bow to Jiang Yun as he advanced along the way.

Obviously, after yesterday’s test, Jiang Yun had become a fine example for many of the disciples, especially for those factotum disciples.

Although Jiang Yun was bare-chested yesterday, today he was wearing a factotum disciple’s uniform, which meant that up till now, he was still a factotum disciple.

The factotum disciples were at the bottom of the whole Seeking-Tao Sect. They suffered the worst treatment and had the most uncertain future despite their largest number. Thus many people were just muddling along.

Jiang Yun, who was also a factotum disciple, had given other disciples great confidence and encouragement.

Seeing the disciples’ admiration towards him, Jiang Yun was a bit confused. Actually, he could not be used to it. Nonetheless, out of politeness, he greeted them one by one, no matter who they were, thus he spent a lot of time to travel through a short distance.

The three of DongFang Bo had expected this outcome. Whenever someone saluted Jiang Yun, they would stop with smile and look at them with joy.

The world of cultivators is one where the rule of the jungle works and the strong are respected.

Jiang Yun had shown sufficient strength to earn this respect.

As for the appearance of Jiang Yun, people were not surprised, and they took it for granted that he must have also come to see something interesting. By the time, Jiang Yun and the three of them got to the bottom of Rune Peak, Lan HuaZhao, as the lord …

Chapter 90 Feel The Meaning Of Sword

Although the test had ended, Jiang Yun’s performance once again made him become the focus of the entire Seeking-Tao Sect after half a year’s silence.

In less than an hour, he completed the test successfully and became the only one who did it this time.

No one knew how Jiang Yun did it, especially for the distance of the last five hundred feet on the blade, which even Wei ZhengYang could not understand.

Besides, there were three things that Wei ZhengYang cared about very much.

First, Jiang Yun took Wang Jian’s sword, and he could also release the Thunder Sword Force unexpectedly, and the power was even much stronger than Wang Jian did.

Secondly, when the human-form meaning of sword appeared in Jiang Yun’s body, Jiang Yun pointed to his eyebrows, as if to use some hidden means, but inexplicably stopped. It was at that time that the vibe and meaning sword disappeared in the blade.

As for the last thing, when Jiang Yun woke up from his meditation, he not only had a strange expression on his face, but also gave him a strange glance.

At that time, Wei did not pay much attention to it, but in retrospect, there was no hatred or killing intent in Jiang Yun’s glance, but something like jocosity.

Being looked upon in a strange way by a disciple in Meridians Unclooged Realm, Wei ZhengYang could not get over it, as a cultivator in Sky Reaching Realm. He always felt that something related to him must have happened during the period of Jiang Yun’s meditation.

He could not figure out what was going on even if he wanted to, but he was sure that now Jiang Yun was definitely qualified to threaten Fang YuXuan, so he had to figure out a way to resolve it quickly.

Jiang Yun had also returned to his cabin on Hidden Peak. Although the three of DongFang Bo wanted to have a good talk with him, they were strictly prohibited by Gu BuLao. In addition, Jiang Yun would continue to four more tests, so they’d to let Jiang Yun take a rest.

To outsiders, it must have been a huge drain for Jiang Yun to across the Chop-Sky Sword, while in fact he had no consumption at all.

He used his physical strength early, while then he relied on the sword from Wang Jian, and the last five hundred feet were completed in almost instantaneous way, so he didn’t need to have a rest at all.

At this moment, he was playing with the black stone, while thinking about what he heard when the human formed meaning of sword met the black stone.

‘The sound should have come from the black stone, and the reason he spoke must is the appearance of the meaning of sword.’

‘The beginning conception of meaning of Tao, that is to say, the human formed meaning of sword own the first conception of Tao meaning? While not …

The World That Tao Rules – Chapter 89

Chapter 89 One Man, One Sword

At the same moment that Jiang Yun’s figure stopped moving, Wei Zheng Yang’s face, which was always somber, finally revealed an expression of relief.

In fact, he did never hope that Wang Jian would kill Jiang Yun, he only wanted to use Wang Jian to slow Jiang Yun for as long as possible.

The Chop Sky Sword was a peculiar weapon with the first half of the blade being a dull body and only the last tenth-part of the sword being sharp.

Everyone knew that a sword could kill people only due to its blade. As a result, this generated the strongest and sharpest sword intent, where the meaning of the sword could even take a certain form.

Even Wei ZhengYang could not control a formed sword intent. He had no idea when and where a sword intent would appear. But he knew that the longer one stayed on the blade, the more likely one would encounter a formed sword intent.

Wei ZhengYang’s intention had been achieved. Now a sword meaning took form in Jiang Yun’s body; what was more, it appeared in a human form, which meant the strongest and sharpest among all the forms.

Although he could not see into Jiang Yun’s body, he was sure that it would definitely stop Jiang Yun’s progress.

In fact, Jiang Yun was aware of the danger clearly when he saw the human-shaped sword intent appear in his Dantian.

Because when it appeared, his Thunder Strength inside the body, which formed a thunder net, was instantly torn apart by it. Although the thunder net wasn’t completely ruined, there was a crack there, allowing the human-shape sword intent to drift through and enter his Dantian.

Jiang Yun was not a sword cultivator, and he had no idea about sword. What impressed him the most was the hazy figure from the Surrogate Talisman given by his Second Sister. That figure waved casually, but it really amazed him.

However, at this moment, looking at the same blurred human figure, Jiang Yun could clearly feel the power contained in it, more powerful than that in his memory.

Although Jiang Yun did not know whether he could resist this Sword Intent now, however he had to do something to stop it from running throughout his body.

‘It seems that I can only use Tao Doppelganger!’

Even Gu BuLao did not know that in Jiang Yun’s last month of seclusion, he had made a Tao Doppelganger, the physical Tao Doppelganger!

And the reason why he had not used it, naturally was to conceal his strength. Once his strength was exposed, it will be known to all that he has reached the tenth-level in Meridians Unclooged Realm.

But now, if he did not use it, his test would probably be over, so he had no option.

Jiang Yun slowly raised his fingers to his eyebrow. After the formation of Tao Doppelganger, it was condensed into a mark hidden under the brow.

But at …

Chapter 88 Meaning Of Sword Transform To Substance

Other testers summoned their own sword to resist the surrounding Sword Force as soon as they stepped on the Chop-Sky Sword.

However, Jiang Yun had been walking a distance of nine tenths. Not only did he not use a sword, but also he didn’t make any action. Instead he only used his physical strength.

Now, as he entered the final one tenth, the coming Sword Force was condensed into an impenetrable wall, and its power increased a lot. Each of them that pierced his body left a small trace. Although it could be repaired in an instant, it would greatly slow his speed.

Therefore, at this time, Jiang Yun finally made a move!


Jiang Yun was really not a sworder, so the way he used was naturally the most powerful art he can perform at present. But he immediately found that there was no other power in this sword except the Sword Force and the meaning of sword.

This was why only those who pursue the Tao of sword dare to rush through Fence Peak.

If he was Wu Shang, even though he was skilled in the five-element arts, he cannot use any of them.

After discovering this, Jiang Yun was not in a fluster.

‘Blood mist!’

Blood, which is also water, also evaporates into fog.

In a split second, Jiang Yun’s body was surrounded by a red blood dragon-like mist. Its body was like a tangible one, and it suddenly rushed to the airless wall ahead.


In the great roar, the wall of Sword Force crumbled.

Jiang Yun had more spiritual power than all cultivators in Meridians Unclogged Realm, so the force of the collision made by this blood mist was too strong to imagine.

With only a simple impact, there was a hundred feet long crack on the wall of Sword Force. Jiang Yun flashed and past it.

After that, Jiang Yun spilled two drops of blood and let himself cross the distance of three hundred feet. At this moment, Wang Jian was less than thirty meters away from him.

Jiang Yun did not look at Wang Jian at all, but thought that whether there were other ways for him to walk through the rest, otherwise, another six or seven spouts of blood would be hurtful to himself even if he finally ran through the sword. What’s more, there were four more mountains waiting for him.

‘It seems that I can only use that…..’

Just when Jiang Yun was ready to go forward in a different way, Wang Jian in front of him turned suddenly and stared at him with bloodshot eyes. He slowly raised the sword in his hand, which was surrounded by blue thunder.

Wang Jian didn’t know who Jiang Yun was, let alone what Jiang Yun had done. However, at the moment, Jiang Yun was obviously able to threaten him. Therefore, even without Wei ZhengYang’s explanation, he was not prepared to let Jiang Yun surpass …

The World That Tao Rules – Chapter 87

Chapter 87 Shock Everyone

Wang Jian had been extremely relaxed all the way, coupled with his strong confidence, he had been dormant for four years. For today, he not only had to walk through the sword with the first status, but also had to surpass Fang YuXuan’s achievements, so he was not inclined to look back to see others, not to know Jiang Yun’s sudden appearance.

This sentence of Wei ZhengYang’s made his body cannot help but slightly shiver, it was not shocked that Wei ZhengYang let him kill someone, but shocked that there were still people can catch up with himself.

However, he still did not turn back, because now he, already dare not have the slightest distraction. Because in this last one tenth, except for the number of Sword Force and sword meaning had been more than the degree of terror, meanwhile, the meaning of sword here, can transform to substance!

The Sword Force can transform to substance, while the meaning of sword, an invisible and immaterial thing, as long as it grew strong to a certain extent, it can be substance as well!

Although he did not know exactly which stream of sword meaning will turn into substance, while Wang Jian had been extremely gingerly, every step was careful, like walking on thin ice.

When Wang Jian stepped into the final one tenths of the sword, Jiang Yun had already walked the sword of six tenths in just a quarter of an hour, while he became the No. 5 from the last position.

In front of him, there were only four men, Wang Jian, HuoYuan and two other disciples.

While Jiang Yun did not know how shocking his performance was in the eyes of onlookers. And his speed had to slow down at the moment.

For every part that had been walked before, the number of Sword Force and meaning of sword though increasing, it increased gradually. But after six tenths, their number doubled sharply from five tenths.

The intensity of the attack from sword like the rain of a downpour, crackled against his body, adding some resistance to his test.

Fortunately, his inner thunder net can still easily block those surging attacks.

Although his speed was indeed slower, it was relative to his own speed past, while it was still much faster compared to others.

When Jiang Yun finished seven tenths, he could see in his eyes the three figures just hundreds of feet away from him.

The three apparently did not find Jiang Yun, especially the two outer disciples still talking while breathing heavily.

‘Old Luo, you still don’t use all strength?’

‘Hey hey, don’t you also still have some reservation?’

‘Well, when the last quarter comes, we’ll give everyone a big surprise!’

‘Ha ha, good…’

The two people’s voice, suddenly stopped, because at their side, Jiang Yun had taken strides, easily passed them.

‘That’s impossible!’

They stared into Jiang Yun’s receding figure almost at the same time, and when they got back to their …

The World That Tao Rules – Chapter 86

Chapter 86: Eleven-Level In Meridians Unclogged Realm

If one wanted to break through the sword in less than an hour, such a thing had never happened in the history of Seeking-Tao Sect, even then no one dares to think about it.

Therefore, even the three of DongFang Bo had little hope for Jiang Yun’s test this time. In their opinion, the reason why Gu BuLao wanted Jiang Yun to rush through peaks at this time was to let Jiang Yun accumulate some experience for next year.

However, Jiang Yun did not think so at all. At this moment, he had only one thought in his mind, which was to seize this opportunity to go through all the five peaks, so that he could worship Gu BuLao as his master.

He did not want to wait another year, even at his present age.

For whether it was the first five years of peace with Feng WuJi, or Lu XiaoYu, who had went to No-Returning Road, and the disaster that may come to five-mountain island at any time, he was extremely valuable time.

Therefore, after stepping on the sword, he did not hesitate to improve his speed to the extreme, toward the top of the sword.

As for the countless Sword Force from all sides, he did not defend himself intentionally, but letting them to pierce his body, with continuous clang sounds.

These Sword Force might had been sharp, but it was impossible to penetrate his formidable body.

Even the meaning of sword, which could attack the spirit, was shattered directly in the moment when it rushed into Jiang Yun’s body, by the thunderbolt net made up of the Thunderbolt-Bead that was constantly moving through his body.

Although the meaning of sword was immaterial, it cannot break through the network of thunder. What’s more, the power of thunder in Jiang Yun’s body was comes from another world–a pure world made by thunder!

No one knows except Gu BuLao, now Jiang Yun’s state had reached the peak of a cultivator in Meridians Unclogged Realm in Mountain-Sea Continent–eleventh-level in Meridians Unclogged Realm!

With the help of Gu BuLao, although the process of getting through the eleventh meridian was still extremely painful, Jiang Yun did not encounter any other trouble. Even in terms of speed, it was much faster than the tenth meridian, which was naturally because the force of thunder was stronger than his physical strength.

It only took two months, and he successfully stepped into eleven-level in Meridians Unclogged Realm!

That was to say, when he retreated for five months, in fact, he can get rid of that Tao-breath from Gu BuLao, but at that time, Gu BuLao let him continue to train the Tao Doppelganger!

To open the meridians with the forces that do not belong to this world, each one of the forces will be accompanied by a special ability–Tao Doppelganger!

While Jiang Yun also saw Feng WuJi, who had owned the Tao Doppelganger made by star force, the power is …

Chapter 85: Have I Seen Ghosts?!

Compared to half a year ago, Jiang Yun’s appearance had no change. With a little confused face, he sat there motionless, as if he had just woken up from a dream.

“Hey, brother Jiang!”

A friendly voice caught his notice. He looked up at the cliff and found that three persons were smiling to him.

“Big Brother, Second Sister, Third Brother!”

Jiang Yun suddenly stood up with smile. He took only a step, then he jumped directly over the height of nearly a thousand feet and appeared in front of them.

However, Jiang Yun turned his head suddenly and looked behind him. For a moment, he could feel a faint sense. But he looked around and saw nothing but the falling waterfall and the huge stone.

“It must be my illusion!”

Jiang Yun didn’t think too much. He turned again and bowed deeply to DongFang Bo and other two people. Since without them, he had never made such an achievement!

“Haha. You don’t need to be so polite! Get up!” DongFang Bo laughed and lifted up Jiang Yun’s bent body. He looked at him up and down, then his face showed a satisfied look.

“Hey dude, you look good!” XuanYuan Xing gave Jiang Yun a punch on his bare chest. However, his face changed suddenly due to this punch.

Because the anti-shock force that came from Jiang Yun’s chest made his hand a little numb.

XuanYuan Xing was shocked. He was about to say something, while Gu BuLao gave his words in a discontent tune, “If I have known that you only need half a year, I would give you less Tao Energy. Since I have already given you, let us not waste it! I will seal it inside your body, and you can use it whenever you need!”

Then the golden light around Jiang Yun rushed into his body in a flash.

“Thank you, Peak Master!”

Jiang Yun knows clearly that the Tao Energy given by Gu BuLao was very precious. The remaining half breath which could be summoned at any time in the future could hide his vibe for half a year. Hence, he hurriedly gave a deep bow to where Gu BuLao was.

“Since you’ve already come out at this moment when the Cross The Five Peaks is being held, you should try it. Or you will have to wait another year!”

Gu BuLao’s words not only made Jiang Yun stunned, other three were shocked as well.

Although XuanYuan Xing had guessed that Jiang Yun might come out for this event, the Fence Tao Peak had been opened for four hours and it would be impossible for Jiang Yun to finish the whole distance within the rest of the time!

Jiang Yun was stunned, “Have the Cross The Five Peaks started already?”

DongFang Bo nodded, “Yes! The first peak was opened four hours ago. It’s the Fence Tao Peak. If you want to attend this event, you should be hurry. Only …

The World That Tao Rules – Chapter 84

Chapter 84: The Sword Light and Sword Consciousness

Though the thunder was very loud, nobody outside the Hidden Peak could hear it. Only Gu BuLao and his three disciples heard it clearly.

Gu BuLao slightly squinted and said, “Will he come out soon? Then he really catches a good time!”

DongFang Bo and the other two disciples had shown up on the cliff opposite the waterfall as soon as the thunder had sounded. They were staring down, with face surprise and expectant.

Although they could actually see nothing, not to mention Jiang Yun’s figure, they could feel that the thunder became more frequent. This turned their face from surprise to serious.

DongFang Bo frowned, “What the hell is Brother Jiang doing? There’s no danger in making such a big noise, is there?”

SiTu Jing though said nothing, she was worried as well.

XuanYuan Xing stealthily took a glance at Gu BuLao who were sitting on the top of the mountain. Then he grinned, “Take it easy. Our master is not in a hurry at all. He will definitely be alright!”

“Oh, Smart-Boy!” Following XuanYuan Xing’s words, Gu BuLao’s voice sounded near these three disciples. It could be found that Gu BuLao was kind of happy now.


Hearing their master’s words, these three guys were relieved. They knew their master’s temper pretty much. He always had a poker face. However, his voices suggested his good mood now. Brother Jiang must be fine and possibly have something good happened.

Gu BuLao spoke as expected, “Don’t worry. This guy will come out soon!”

These three were in great joy. XuanYuan Xing smiled, “Master, what strength does brother Jiang have now?”

“You will find it when he shows up!”

Gu BuLao became silent then. They dared not to ask more. Seeing each other, XuanYuan Xing suddenly realized something, “Brother Jiang comes out for the Cross The Five Peak event, doesn’t he?”

That was possible since Gu BuLao promised Jiang Yun to become his disciple only when Jiang Yun crossed all these five peaks successfully.

DongFang Bo frowned, “However, the Fence Tao Peak has opened for over half an hour. Even if brother Jiang comes out right now, I’m afraid it’s too late!”

SiTu Jing said flatly, “He can catch next year’s chance!”

“Well, brother Jiang is young enough. It’s fine to wait a year!”

They then finished talking and kept watching the waterfall, waiting for Jiang Yun with patience. Unconsciously, two hours passed.

While in the time they had been waiting, the competition on the sword became white-hot!

Though at the beginning disciples who stood on the hilt had almost rushed to the body of the sword at the same time, only a while later, the distance between each other grew gradually. Even some had fallen from the Chop-Sky Sword.

Because once standing on the body of the sword, its Sword Light and Sword Consciousness would be inspired, attacking everyone indiscriminately.

Furthermore, the farther you went on its body, the stronger Sword Light …

The World That Tao Rules – Chapter 83

Chapter 83: Four-Year Dormancy

Looking at the Hidden Peak, all the people understood who Bao YuanQiang was talking about. That was Jiang Yun!

That day when Jiang Yun had beaten Zheng Yuan had made those who had witnessed that fight deeply impressed. Jiang Yun was only at the Meridians Unclogged Realm, but he had been able to fight with one at the Blessing Land Realm. What was more, he had almost killed Zheng Yuan. It was really exciting to see how well Jiang Yun in such a powerful strength would performance in this event.

“However, after that fight, Jiang Yun has not appeared for more than half a year. He is definitely trying to promote himself to the Blessing Land Realm. I’m afraid that he might not come for the Cross The Five Peaks at this moment.”

“He has been famous due to that fight. He should have been accepted as a disciple by a certain Peak Master or Elder or even the Lord of the Sect. It’s unnecessary for him to attend this event!”

People were talking excitedly. While Bao YuanQiang said with more disdain, “Bah! You should admit that you are ignorant! Who told you that he has been at the Ninth Level of Meridians Unclogged Realm already? Who told you that he has been promoting himself to the Blessing Land Realm?”

“He said it himself! Furthermore, he had beaten Brother Zheng. He could never make it if he hadn’t been at the Ninth Level of Meridians Unclogged Realm!”

Bao YuanQiang pointed at these people and said, “You! You’re just like parrots, saying what others says. How could you believe what he said? If I tell you that I’m at the Ninth Level of Meridians Unclogged Realm, will you believe it? Have he given any evidence? As for the hearsay that he had ever beaten Brother Zheng……Ahem! There was low-down on it.”

Everyone was attracted and asked at once, “What’s the inside information?”

Bao YuanQiang lowered his voice deliberately, “According to Master Xiao, Jiang Yun should take some drugs that can promote his strength during a short time. That’s why he could be so powerful that day. However, it also caused a lot of damage to his body. The reason why he didn’t show up for such a long time was very likely to be that he has been healing himself.”

Upon hearing the name Master Xiao, all these disciples were immediately in awe. Because Master Xiao was the only second-class chemist in the Seeking-Tao Sect!

This made the credibility of Bao YuanQiang’s words increased. Because though they might dare to doubt Bao YuanQiang, they would absolutely not dare to question Master Xiao.

“Aha! Then that can explain how a mortal could cultivate to the Ninth Level of Meridians Unclogged Realm within only ten months! He must take some special pills!”

“I heard something as well. A brother told me that Jiang Yun was kind of strange. Now I see!”

“I have been taken him as the model …
