Xian Ni Chapter 37 – Four Years

ObligatoryTLNote: Ok so the title pretty much says it all. Enjoy.

Senior Zhang gave Wang Zhuo a cold glance and said: “The key to this breakthrough actually is highly related to talent, some people may succeed in one attempt, some may need hundreds, some thousands and some cannot break through their whole lives.”

Wang Lin said in a melancholic tone: “Senior Zhang, is it this difficult to break through for all the layers, like the second to third, and the third to fourth? Similar to this?”

Senior Zhang nodded and said: “Yes, the higher the layer, the more difficult it is to break through, especially at the time of third to fourth, and five to sixth, it is very difficult!”

Senior Zhang’s answer had by now attracted a lot of disciples, suddenly a woman asked: “Senior, why is the third to fourth breakthrough difficult? I am in the third layer of Concentrating Qi now.”

Wang Lin knew the person who spoke, it was the lady Zhou, who Wang Zhuo was chasing after.

Senior Zhang pondered a bit, then said: “Ok, today I will take this opportunity to explain to you all in detail the bottlenecks in Concentrating Qi, below the sixth layer of Concentrating Qi, there are two bottlenecks, one is third-to-fourth, this bottleneck for some people can easily be surpassed, but again, for others may not be able to pass in their whole life, the key to pass it has nothing to do with talent. Whether or not you breakthrough depends on if you are able to comprehend one thing!”

Then, he glanced at the crowd with eyes full of profoundness, before continuing: “In order to XiuXian to become a Saint, one must cut off his ties with the mundane world, if can cut it off, then the third-to-fourth is not difficult, if cannot cut, then it would be very difficult! As for the fifth-to-sixth bottleneck, at this stage of Concentrating Qi, the body is required to undergo a qualitative change using LingQi, which will conduct a series of deep reaching changes, the consumption of LingQi is very large, therefore it becomes a bottleneck, at which people may remain stuck their whole lives.”

Wang Lin listened stunned in silence.

Other disciples had varying facial expressions, continued to ask different questions, until the sky darkened and the crowd dispersed.

Wang Lin frowned and walked down the valley, the sound of the running water is getting louder, before long, a river appeared before him.

A slight trace of LingQi was emanating from the river, Wang Lin scooped up some to drink, thought that although, not as much as LingQi Spring water, but more or less, can increase the LingQi.

So he got out all his gourds and filled them with water, after a long time, when all the gourds were filled he stored them, and as he just turned around, his pupils shrank, saw Second Senior Zhang Kuang staring from not far away from him. Before he started scooping up water, he used Soul search but couldn’t find anything strange, but he was apparently there for a long time, Wang Lin felt nervous.

“Junior Wang, the water in the river contains a lot of LingQi, drink it as it would be good for your practice, but I see you have come prepared with a lot of gourds, you never came to this valley before, how did you know its use in that manner?” Zhang Kuan said with his eyes flashing.

Wang Lin quietly putting away the gourds, said respectfully: “My master told me about it before, that I can use this river to help in practise, so Junior prepared a lot.”

Zhang Kuang stared at Wang Lin for a long time before nodding and saying: “It is normal for Elder Sun to know this, you go back to practice, taking just two years to reach Concentrating Qi first layer, seems like Junior has a lot of determination, good, I hope when I see you again, you will have reached the second layer!”

Wang Lin shook his hand, before asking to be excused, carefully left, only after returning to the cave he breathed a sigh of relief, it is a good thing he had developed a habit of concealing his level of practise subconsciously, if had been discovered by Zhang Kuang that I was actually on third layer of Concentrating Qi, would have actually aroused suspicion, and when that time comes, with his strength, I would have been killed without being able to fight back in the slightest.

“A person doing Xiuxian to become a Saint has to do just as much to survive as a mortal due to the various desires, and sometimes the harsh conditions faced is several times that of a mortal. So I will never let people come to know of this mysterious bead.” Wang Lin determined in his heart.

Pulling the handle on the cave wall to seal the cave, Wang Lin sat down cross legged and started meditating.

Logically speaking, people doing Xiuxian cut themselves off from the mundane world, to let themselves no longer be affected by a variety of desires, thus affecting the practice, but ever since he entered Heng Yue Sect, saw that people doing Xiuxian, instead of being cut off from desire, possess it in magnitude several times more than mortals.

Thus, this so called cutting oneself off from the mundane world is nothing more than a vague concept, but this third-to-fourth bottleneck, according to what Senior Zhang said, that one must cut himself off from the mundane world, which is somewhat contradictory.

Pondering for a long time, and unable to figure things out, Wang Lin knew that he could not cut off his family, the third layer of Concentrating Qi is different from the first two layers, although unable to breakthrough, but the LingQi is still increasing, so after considering for a long time, he gave up the idea of a short breakthrough, and focused on consolidating his third layer.

Time flew by, one year, two years, but they weren’t merely two years for Wang Lin, he had been closed-door practice in the cave for four years now. [TLNote: Real time] In the past two years, Wang Lin had only once went out to refill water, soaking the bead in them before continuing training.

In reality it was four years, but in dream space time, it was twenty-five years. Including Wang Lin’s practice before coming here, he had been practicing now for twenty seven-eight years.

Still stuck on Concentrating Qi third layer, and no breakthrough. But the LingQi in his body, kept growing.

The day after the fourth year ended, in the morning, Zhang Kuang’s voice rang out: “Juniors the four years have ended, come quickly out of your caves, Head Senior of the Sect will use magic to send you back!”

All the cliff caves opened up, the Disciples, came out one by one.

More than forty people, in this four year closed-door training, each one of them had experienced gains, in the valley, Wang Lin swept away with his soul.

Wang Zhuo has reached the peak of Concentrating Qi fifth layer, ready to enter into sixth layer, as for the others, practicing for these four years, everyone had progressed.

That woman Xu has also reached the third layer, as for Senior Zhang, Wang Lin upon looking closely found him at the sixth layer of Concentrating Qi!

He had a vague feeling, that his method of practice, is different from others, beginning with the soul search, when he sensed with his soul, nobody noticed.

Two years ago, another woman Zhou said she had reached Concentrating Qi third layer, maybe Wang Lin is the only one that is still stuck at the third layer, no noticeable growth.

Wang Lin guessed that there is nobody else thought like him, there is no limit to the third layer.

    tq for team and contributor.

    THANKS A LOT!!!!

    • qu1eet April 8, 2015 / 7:47 pm

      Now that I actually read the chapter I’m confused about the last sentence.

      “Wang Lin guessed that there is nobody else thought like him, there is no limit to the third layer.”

      Does it mean that nobody else is like him in that his 3rd layer is endlessly feeding on his LinQi and for other it is not like that??

      • voidtranslations April 8, 2015 / 7:50 pm

        Well basically it means, that since nobody else was stuck at the third layer for so long, nobody else wanted to just increase their LingQi staying at that level. Considering his many years experience, compared to others, it differentiates him from others. I guess, the last sentence will make much more sense with the next chapter. The no limit is for others too, but they all focus on breaking through as fast as possible.

        Oh ok, Got it somewhat :S
        Thanks for replying so fast šŸ™‚

    Thank you for translating!

  8. devilsympathy April 8, 2015 / 7:31 pm

    Mnn shouldn’t it be that the stronger the foundation the better it is in the later stages? Maybe having him spend so much time on the third layer will benefit him later!

    • Odin April 8, 2015 / 10:04 pm

      I hope so.

  9. Kylar April 8, 2015 / 7:32 pm

    Thank you for the chapter!

    Damn… that stupid brat has already reached the peak of the 5th!?
    Wang Lin needs to step it up a notch and drink some more bead soaked morning dew and that jelly!

    • Blue April 8, 2015 / 7:47 pm

      Nah. That jelly is what’s going to easily push him from the 5th layer to the 6th. The 5th layer is the one you break through with pure force. The third layer needs some sort of inspiration to break through.

  10. Pewpew April 8, 2015 / 7:40 pm

    What ever happens in the next couple of chapters will probably define his power for the rest of the series.. Maybe he will jump alot of layers at once? or maybe become something completly different than everyone else?

  11. mightyLeecher April 8, 2015 / 7:40 pm

    Maybe he will be forevor on thirdh layer.And keep collecting that lunqi which can shock every xiantians

  12. Kijin April 8, 2015 / 7:44 pm

    The bottleneck doesn’t seem to be LingQi amount, tho. Its probably a worldview change/tranformation that will allow him to break through it. He still gets to amass LingQi tho, so its not a total waste.

    • Moissonneur66 April 8, 2015 / 8:36 pm

      Could sort of be like Doluo Dalu in that you can continue to cultivate your energy but you require a ring to actually breakthrough. After the breakthrough all the accumulated Qi comes bursting forth like a broken dam and you jump several levels at once? least that’s my thinking

  13. qu1eet April 8, 2015 / 7:49 pm

    Like in Dualo where u can keep cultivating your spirit but you will only see the change after you get a spirit ring?

  14. 34rthsp3ar April 8, 2015 / 7:53 pm

    I truly hope that at least being on the third layer for so long will give him some benefits in the future

  15. Ordedragon April 8, 2015 / 8:00 pm

    I truly hope too that his higher foundation in the 3rd stage will let him being incredible.
    What’s obvious is that he will have to return see his family one last time, to cut off all tides. OhMyG the suspense is killing me. Will there be another chapter today?

    • Wes April 8, 2015 / 8:13 pm

      Mabey he will be the one who will reach lvl 15 without doing that and end up a one of a kind genius.

      • Ordedragon April 8, 2015 / 8:34 pm

        I don’t think the author will cruch all the rules like in douluo dalu xP

  16. Sayter April 8, 2015 / 9:02 pm

    I’ll buy you a pizza if you psot another chapter today (joking). Man thanks a lot for the chapter, but what another cliffhanger, man i really need more chapter of these !!

    • voidtranslations April 8, 2015 / 9:19 pm

      Me too, I guess it is these thrice-damned cliffhangers that keep making me do all these double releases. Anyways, I am trying to get out another chapter today. Look forward to it.

      • Sayter April 8, 2015 / 9:31 pm

        Man if u do a double today i’m going to go crazy here hahaha Looking foward to it !! And Thanks a lot for the translations, I think you should start considering donations (not like ren) maybe more like gravity or maybe like ren but putting a limit on it !

  17. Abhi April 8, 2015 / 9:05 pm

    Thanks for the translation! šŸ™‚
    I’m really curious about the next chapter now!
    How do I donate?

    • voidtranslations April 8, 2015 / 9:18 pm

      I don’t have donation links, at the moment, I don’t think it would be appropriate of me to even put them up. Enjoy the ride though. Although I will be going on a hiatus soon, I usually keep up a decent speed.

      • Abhi April 8, 2015 / 9:51 pm

        I understand that you don’t feel the need to receive a donation, but consider it as extra cash on the side. Translating Xian Ni seems like a long journey. IMO, this might serve as additional motivation. Something akin to “Getting paid for something you would do for free”.
        It also gives people the ability to show their appreciation.

        Anyways, I’m a programmer and I might be able to help you out with your work. I might be wrong, but I’m assuming that a a part of your work could be automated. Perhaps, I could help you out with that.

    • voidtranslations April 8, 2015 / 10:41 pm

      I know that Xian Ni is a long journey, and I will consider donations at some point of time, just not now. And thanks for your concern, but even machine translation involves more manual labour. I have to look at four different sites, collate the information in my head, form a reasonable sentence and then type it out. Don’t know how much automation can go to alleviate some of my problems. Sometimes I am right, sometimes i am wrong, that’s why I put out a disclaimer that it might not always be accurate and I sometimes take the help of Goodguyperson who is generous enough to spare some time for me to help out with problematic segments.

      • Abhi April 8, 2015 / 11:12 pm


        I know it requires a lot of manual labor and thanks for the hard work. Just to form an idea, if the translation process is something like…
        Step 1. Break into segments.
        Step 2. Translate using four different translators.
        Step 3. Pick the best one and modify it.

        Step 1 and Step 2 can be automated and Step 3 would depend on you.

        In any case, shoot me an email in case you need some help in the future!

        Thanks again!
