Xian Ni Chapter 25 – Concentrating Qi

ObligatoryTLNote: Here it is, Second chapter of the day, also, I would like to hear your opinion on some things which being spoilers I wouldn’t mention here but instead at the bottom of this chapter. Do comment on it if you like. Cheers.

In the mountains, time flowed fast, two months later, Wang Lin was in dream space, with his eyes closed doing breathing practice, in these two months, he had managed to thoroughly study the mysterious bead.

Can use the bead to enter dream space three times a day, each time is more than 20 hours, adding up to six days in total. [TLNote: Don’t blame me, I couldn’t figure it out either, I redid this sentence multiple times, but this was the only possible translation I could get. EDIT: Check out possible explanations from lightnoveltank and thefalconhuntsatmidnight, because my brain has gone haywire, heh]

Thus, in the span of two months, in fact, he was practising for one year.

Practice is a very tedious thing, Wang Lin didn’t really feel it before, but now he fully understood, taking the help of bead-soaked spring water daily, did not even have to eat all day, just sit in meditation and practice breathing.

Constantly repeating the one long and three short pattern of breathing to absorb Lingqi, every time his mental fortitude wavered, his parent’s expectant eyes flashed in his mind, dreading that he refused to abandon the practice no matter how tedious.

Especially the thought of Wang Zhuo reaching the first layer of Concentrating Qi, caused Wang Lin to develop a strong resolve, he confined himself in his room and started practising with reckless abandon.

Wang Lin was the butt of all jokes at Heng Yue Sect, but regardless of his infamy even though many people were jealous of him, they rarely even paid attention to him.

Even Sun DaZhu had tried to forget about Wang Lin, even if by chance thought about him came to his mind, filled with anger, he immediately tried to filter that thought out of his mind.

Given these circumstances, plus some precautions taken by Wang Lin, such as during the time he was in dream space, he would immediately hide away the bead, so these past two months passed by relatively quiet, and no one found out about Wang Lin’s bead.

Two months ago, Wang Lin had been unable to calculate the amount of spring water to drink, basically whenever he felt his Lingqi becoming low, he used to drink several mouthfuls immediately.

If Sun DaZhu would have to come to know of this, out of heartache, he would have slapped Wang Lin to death. In the entire Zhao Gue XiuZhen community, having the ability to straight up drink such potent Lingqi liquid like the bead-soaked spring water of Wang Lin, was quite rare, in fact only Old Geezers in some Elite Sects may enjoy such privelage who monopolized places having high concentration of Lingqi like mountain caves, while Wang Lin achieved the same effect with his bead-soaked spring water.

Lingqi, in the eyes of every person engaged in XiuXian it holds an important place, Zhao Guo doesn’t have that many places having high concentration of Lingqi, the numerous sects are placed to take sufficient advantage of them, but even so, if anyone came to know about Wang Lin’s method of practice, he would die of heartache just like Sun DaZhu. [TLNote: Zhao Guo is the region’s name]

This spring water, if used for refining pills, then it will increase the effectiveness of the immortal pills, it is common knowledge in refining, that although the core ingredients are essential, but secondary materials help in creating bonus effect.

Taking advantage of an almost inexhaustible source of Lingqi, the amount absorbed in Wang Lin’s body increased more and more.

Today, Wang Lin while doing breathing practice in dream space, clearly felt Lingqi flowing throughout his body, and along with his breath, two long white lines came out from between his mouth and nose before dissipating.

A feeling akin to insects crawling on the skin emerged weak at first but growing strong, on the inside and outside of the body, like a surging tide spread throughout the body, a bit of black substance emitting foul odour, discharged from the pores on his body.

Soon the clothes were soaked, but Wang Lin didn’t bother with that, he was completely immersed in the wonderful feeling at the moment, he could clearly feel the spring water constantly breaking down his body from within and the Lingqi slowly changing the internal structure of his body.

Wang Lin after a long amount of time, opened his eyes, never having witnessed the white light before, his eyes lit up.

His mind was clear, his heart was like a lake so tranquil that no waves could disturb it, memories of his childhood flashed past one by one, his father affectionate eyes when he had first learned to talk, his mother’s late night stories before bedtime, their expectant eyes when they sent me off to Heng Yue Sect, the mockeries of their relatives, the envious look of the villagers, he watched all of these in a detached manner as if he was a stranger.

After a while, he took a deep breath, with a pained feeling rising in his heart, he had mastered the first layer of Concentrating Qi, and consequently had a glimmer of understanding.

According to the book on three segments of Concentrating Qi, the first layer is like a door, one who opens it enters the ranks of people who XiuXian to become Saints, and consequently cut off their ties with the mortal world.

Everyone who passes through the first layer of Concentrating Qi, goes through this process, how could Wang Lin not know this, but could not cut himself off from the worldly affairs due to his affection towards his parents.

Sighing loudly, Wang Lin patted down his clothes, and stood up.

With bright eyes, he looked around, now he was able to make out differences in the dream space, for example the luminous objects, until now he couldn’t see anything unusual but now able to see that one of the objects have concealed inside Lingqi, although cannot see any big changes, but compared to before, it is like a blind man suddenly gaining eyesight.

As he was watching, the tearing pain occurs, the pain is less than before but it still hurts, although he no longer woke up in cold sweat.

Back in reality, Wang Lin opened his eyes, meditated on the bed for a while, then picked up the gourd and looked inside, found that from the spring water a faint light slowly drifting out, and he could see the gourd full of abundant Lingqi.

A smile appeared on his face, after achieving the first layer of Concentrating Qi, he could already feel the Lingqi in his surroundings, taking a deep breath, Wang Lin found that his whole body had gotten leaner and he laughed as the whole body was covered in some sticky substance, according to the book on Concentrating Qi, upon breaking through the first layer of Concentrating Qi, the body will force out a large amount of impurities, in the process of transformation of the body, this is an unavoidable stage.

Wang Lin opened the door, it is afternoon time, he went out of the East gate at a brisk pace, arriving at the spring, found a position downstream and took off his clothes. He washed the clothes thoroughly as it was stained with greasy impurities, had to wash it for a long time to make it clean again.

After having finished washing, he lay down on a rock nearby, looking up at the sky, he recalled the description given by the book on Concentrating Qi.

It introduced a immortal technique called “Gravity Technique”, it belongs to category of basic spells and as long as reach the first layer, can use it.

Heng Yue Sect used to dominate the Zhao Guo 500 years ago, even though it is on a decline nowadays, but it still possesses a large collection of XiuXian methods, the principle is that Disciples are free to choose from the collected scriptures, but the Elders prefer sword cultivation techniques.

In Sword Cultivation, a person who has mastered it is able to utilize Flying Sword, although later practice is hard, but it is quite powerful even early on and is easy to grasp. This Gravity technique, is the foundation that drives forward the Flying swords technique.

In addition to the Gravity technique, the book on Concentrating Qi, also records two other spells, one is Flame ball, and the other is Shattering Earth technique.

    thank you for the chapter

  2. Odin March 30, 2015 / 10:08 pm

    I think the names “Gravity Technique” ect ect is fine as is.

    And once again, a huge thank you for this chapter.

    • voidtranslations March 30, 2015 / 10:11 pm

      Well, I just wanted to hear you guys’ opinion. Because these techniques will probably be repeated in future chapters so it’s better to consult it now itself.

  3. zhertz March 30, 2015 / 10:09 pm

    damn second D:

    • zhertz March 30, 2015 / 10:10 pm

      damn fail hahaha

  4. xanius1 March 30, 2015 / 10:11 pm

    Awesome! Thanks for the release. I wonder if he will let anyone know before the tournament.

  5. Kijin March 30, 2015 / 10:16 pm

    Oh yeah, the Tournament, the aftermath of w/c we truly learn how much of a *spoiler* his nominal Teacher really is. At least, from what GT tells me.

  6. Kylar March 30, 2015 / 10:18 pm

    Awesome! Thank you very much πŸ™‚
    Wonder how long it’ll take him to progress further, bet he’ll cause a storm with entering the first layer so “soon” πŸ˜€

  7. lightnoveltank March 30, 2015 / 10:19 pm

    Thanks for the translation. I think the names are fine. Didn’t the previous chapter say he could enter the dream state ever 2 hours and would be in it for 2.5 hours? That would put his training at 5 days in the dream state for every normal day of training. 5 + 1 = 6.

  8. 34rthsp3ar March 30, 2015 / 10:23 pm

    Things are becoming quite interesting.

  9. thefalconhuntsatmidnight March 30, 2015 / 10:25 pm

    Btw how they work out the time is in ancient china 12 hr day, he’s in the dream state for 25 hrs 3 x a day so each day he’s meditating for 6 days.

  10. Azuka March 30, 2015 / 10:26 pm

    What’s important is to be consistent. The names are fine as is.

    Thanks for the wonderful work,

  11. dodadum March 30, 2015 / 10:27 pm

    You are right, this is getting really good!

  12. RobotLove March 30, 2015 / 10:28 pm

    Thank you! I think things are fine as now with no spoilers.

  13. Vivec March 30, 2015 / 10:29 pm

    I say keep the names as is unless the more or less chuuni names better illustrate what the skills do. Everything should be for the sake of better conveying the author’s meaning.

  14. Silchas March 30, 2015 / 10:43 pm

    Wicked, thanks for the chapter.
    My $0.02: the technique names sound good.

  15. nefarian3339 March 30, 2015 / 11:17 pm

    Thanks for the chapter!

  16. Jon March 30, 2015 / 11:21 pm

    I think it gets quite repetitive writing “technique” at the end of each technique all the time so these are my suggestions:
    Earth Shattering Technique –> Shattering Earth
    Flame Ball Technique –> Fireball or Flameball
    Gravity Technique –> Gravity Field or Supergravity

  17. Ark March 31, 2015 / 12:02 am

    Thanks for the chapter.

  18. Leprechaun Logan March 31, 2015 / 2:14 am

    thank you

  19. Stridar March 31, 2015 / 2:17 am

    Flame ball needs to be changed to ‘Fireball’.
    Gravity Technique maybe called simply ‘Force’.
    Earth Shattering Technique could be ‘Shockwave’.

  20. RobotLove March 31, 2015 / 5:53 am

    After re-reading this I realize he drinks a lot of water… how is he not going to the washroom multiple times a day?

    • anonymous March 31, 2015 / 6:58 am

      If they try to recruit you, don’t. You are managing and growing your site by yourself. You already have dedicated fans. You are growing stronger each day please don’t ever and give up your independent spirit.

      • voidtranslations March 31, 2015 / 8:45 am

        Don’t worry, I hold my independent spirit dear to my heart. I promise I won’t do anything to let down all the people who come here daily to enjoy their dose of Xian Ni. So rest assured, and thanks for the support.

      • Kijin March 31, 2015 / 10:53 am

        Indeed. I don’t really see any reason to join other groups when you’ve done admirably by yourself. It may even be detrimental to the updates speeds if you find yourself hampered by additional agendas.

  21. ryuketsu March 31, 2015 / 7:37 am

    Thank ya very much for the translation translator!! Many thanks towards the Author!!

  22. Cuprum March 31, 2015 / 9:01 am

    Thanks for the chapter!

    A chapter a day was already delightful, giving your all is simply a show of your passion. Don’t burn yourself out though! (says a budding workaholic)

  23. defiring March 31, 2015 / 10:32 am

    Thanks for the chapters πŸ™‚

  24. Lazy Crow March 31, 2015 / 11:56 am

    Thanks for the chapters~
    If you don’t mind, I would like to ask permission to give you edited versions of the other chapters, I’d like to write it in a more smooth way like the chapters in the past tense so it would flow more easily like in Gravity Translations, that is if you don’t mind. Thanks for the chapters void~

    Truthfully, if you look at btth, its vacuum palm or something. Or there is also the art of suction where if you look at shaolin demo where a guy put a bowl over his stomach and it stuck quite strongly. It’s up to you though but for me probably tractor beam art😊

  26. dharmox March 31, 2015 / 5:13 pm

    Just giving you a slightly hint for the development of your web. Firstly you need a vvisitor count to knowing how much your dedicated fans are. Secondly try to bombatd post by giving 1 – 2 chp every 2 hour for 2 weeks for advertise your site via aho updates and mangaupdates. Thirdly you can always use advertising in your web like google adsense or any. Then after 100 chp for your dedication you can always use donation button. And lastly thanks for your work….

    • RobotLove March 31, 2015 / 6:07 pm

      Yo you don’t need to listen to anyone else’s advice. Your doing great by yourself at your own pace why fix something that’s not broken? You’re alreadly doing great with your own flow.

      • defiring March 31, 2015 / 7:00 pm

        He’s giving him (good) advice to make his translations more popular, he’s not telling him he’s doing things wrong, it’s just that he’s new to this and he might not know where to advertise himself. (bato.to, reddit, mangaupdates etc….)

      • dharmox March 31, 2015 / 7:11 pm

        Its weird when someone make a suggestion, theres always be somebody who always hated it.lol. a suggestion is something that is not obligaationto do it. Its truly funny and fantastic this day. A suggestion means that i`m a fans and really want to make this site a lot better. Thats doesnt mean you have to take it all my suggestion. So i say it is truly about suggestion nothing about to push you translator to do. And why always somebody try to create better world and somebiody always hate that. Lol lol lol

      • voidtranslations March 31, 2015 / 7:36 pm

        Guys, Guys, No need to get so much heated over trivial things. Firstly thanks to both of you for caring so much about this blog and the translation, Secondly, I acknowledge I am still a beginner in terms of blog promotion so any advice is appreciated, Thirdly, I won’t release chapters just for the sake of publicity, I will make them as and when ready. With that said, I really am grateful for the continued support of dedicated fans like you all for making this community worth working hard for.

      • RobotLove March 31, 2015 / 8:08 pm

        Concerning about popularity he’s already growing without your (advices). He’s already on batoto,reddit,aho-updates, spc,and manga updates. Secondly the other advice concerning about donations and ads are a different matter did he say he’s doing this to make extra income? It feels like your forcing the idea of ruining the bases of reading joy of light novels to make money. If he needed support he will implement it himself and I will gladly support it. So before you guys give advice think about his own principles first. I’m not hating on advices I just think your advices are idiotic and forcing him to change his general direction. I enjoy his translations cause he adds his style own style and enjoys interacting with the readers feeding on our joy and reactions. So f**k off re-read your sht and the comments from from the beginning till now and think about why your advices are idiotic.

      • daniel12997 March 31, 2015 / 11:53 pm

        I don’t think he meant that he was doing it for income, just that some people might like to support it monetarily.

    • dharmox March 31, 2015 / 10:32 pm

      Wow you are truly genius person who really force people who work on extra because you want to force on translator to work for you because you cant read those beautiful novel yourself. Wow i dont wanna force him. So whose the one who force him… wow you affraid if he gonna make you throw some cash for him do you robolove. Thats very genius and generous idea. And thank you for call me idiot. And i think you are very educated with all your badmouthing and swore. Thats very genuinely genius educated person. And thankyou.lollollolol

      • RobotLove March 31, 2015 / 11:16 pm

        Re-read what I said.

        Then re-educate yourself starting from elementary then to high shool so you can learn how write full sentences that actually makes sense. I’ll end myself here, even if you try to rebuttal. You never even intend to defend your statement but instead add on some nonsense that gives people dirrhea that tries to comprehend what you said. If you’re mentally disabled with multiple drug histories which I think you implied from your speech, don’t take everything I say to heart, I apologize if I’m your next source of stress that impulses you to take another dose of that good stuff.

      • voidtranslations April 1, 2015 / 12:00 am

        Ok, at this point, I would like to sincerely request you guys not to flame this up any further, any more needless drama and I would be forced to take some drastic steps, which I don’t really like doing. I know what I am doing, and I have a general inkling of the direction that I need to take this blog and translation in. So, thanks once again for all your concern and please consider this debate over with immediate effect.

  27. DMS March 31, 2015 / 8:13 pm

    Thanks for the chapters! I think the names of the techniques are well chosen, keep up the good work!

  28. JackBJ April 26, 2015 / 4:18 pm

    Dear Translator(s), thank you very much for translating this chapter!
    Dear Author, thank you for writing this marvelous story!
    Please ignore this RobotLove’s unhelpful comments. Too bad I cannot report them as spam :/

  29. Abyssdarkfire July 5, 2015 / 4:58 pm

    Time to try out some spells

  30. midoriha July 25, 2015 / 11:38 pm

    Thank you!
    ooh, spells? Let’s go, let’s go!

  31. peacefuloutrage October 14, 2015 / 4:58 am

    Thanks for the chapter!

    The real explanation to the 6 days thing is this: he is in the dream space for 20 real hours a day. He goes in 2 hours after leaving, so he goes in at the beginning of the day, leaves, waits two hours, goes in ,waits two hours, goes in and then when he leaves it is the end of the day. Because time in the dream space is 10 times real life he is actually there for 200 hours (20*10) which is about 6 days
