Xian Ni Chapter 106 – Rank

ObligatoryTLNote: Massive info drop, so prepare yourselves.

For upgradation of the rank of XiuZhen country, except for a special event, for XiuZhen countries below rank five, there is only one way. A Cultivator must practising on his own reach JieDan, Yuan Ying, Spirit Forming, Ying Bian, as he rises through the stages, the rank of the XiuZhen Country also increases, if a cultivator reaches JieDan stage, then the XiuZhen country automatically climbs to second rank XiuZhen country.

If YuanYing stage, then to third ranked XiuZhen country, and so on, if cultivator reaches Spirit Forming, then rises to fourth ranked XiuZhen country, and upon reaching Ying Bian stage, reaches fifth ranked XiuZhen country.

Such upgrades, in addition to time, also depend on great deal of luck, especially the higher ranks, the higher up in the stages you go, the more difficult it is, and often the chance of rising from third to fourth or fourth to fifth rank, doesn’t appear even in a millennium or more.

But despite the difficulties, this is the only way, eventually there would be some people, or a chance would occur, or by accident, or by help of somebody else, in short, even if it occurs after a long time, some cultivator would emerge, which would help the country raise it’s XiuZhen ranking.

These people without exception, would become the rulers of these XiuZhen countries.

After raising the XiuZhen ranking of the Country to fourth rank, and obtaining qualification to participate in foreign battlefield, but in terms of power, it simply cannot compete with fifth rank XiuZhen countries.

The gap between them, cannot be made up with quantity, for example, an extremely powerful late Spirit forming cultivator of the fourth ranked country, if placed in front of fifth ranked XiuZhen country expert, then they are immediately reduced to second-rate, infront of Ying Bian stage experts, they are like fragile children.

It would even be no exaggeration to say that, barring any exception, then a Ying Bian expert, can destroy an entire fourth ranked XiuZhen country. Such a thing in the XiuZhen community, has happened more than once.

So, the fourth ranked XiuZhen countries in the foreign battlefield, are in fact, mere pawns of their respective fifth ranked XiuZhen countries who back them.

The truly decisive battles in the foreign battlefields take place between the fifth ranked XiuZhen countries.

A XiuZhen country after reaching rank five, the most serious problem it faces is the lack of resources, material and massive strength, and endless number of cultivators, if it is unable to solve these issues, then within a certain amount of time, the country would break apart.

Even by robbing the lower ranked XiuZhen countries, is unable to solve the problems of lack of cultivation aiding materials, lingqi and cultivation methods, only after solving them, is the country able tor each the sixth ranked XiuZhen country level.

From fifth to sixth, it is not as simple as just an individual breaking through to next stage of cultivation, there is a specific method stipulated by the XiuZhen alliance, which is only one, and it is related to Foreign battlefield.

Foreign battlefield, is a space full of cracks, is an endless realm, full of astral winds which could even easily eliminate Spirit Forming experts, as well as cracks in space.

Once astral winds blow, unless one has reached the ying bian stage, then he will instantly melt to ashes.

In addition to astral winds, the most strange and unpredictable phenomenon is the sudden appearance of space rifts, once a cultivator gets stuck, even Ying bian stage experts would not be able to escape unharmed. Only strong sixth ranked XiuZhen countries, can come and go freely in the foreign battlefield.

Every few years, there will be an extra-territorial war, fourth ranked and above XiuZhen countries can participate in this war, and this is permitted and promoted by the XiuZhen alliance.

Those who win more than a thousand times in a row, are promoted to sixth ranked XiuZhen country level, in addition to access to a lot of wealth and materials and cultivation methods, the winning country, is able to send a delegate to the XiuZhen alliance, and be promoted to cultivation level beyond Ying bian. Of course, the most important reward, the one which makes the fifth ranked XiuZhen countries battle like crazy, is that XiuZhen alliance grants a planet for the winning XiuZhen country to establish as its base.

The practitioners of XiuXIan attach extremely importance to the lingqi, talent and treasures, it can even be said that XiuXian is based on LingQi and materials.

Having a planet, is the sign of a sixth ranked XiuZhen Country. But the requirements to become a sixth ranked XiuZhen country are very strict, first step is to have a winning streak in foreign battlefield extending over a thousand successive victories, only then will it be awarded a planet. The Second step, is that within a specified time, the sixth ranked XiuZhen country, must have several first to fifth ranked XiuZhen countries, with the aim of forming a cycle.

The foreign battlefield is the only way for fifth ranked XiuZhen countries to get promoted, the same is true, for almost all XiuZhen planets, generally speaking, a Sixth ranked XiuZhen Country would not interfere with fifth ranked XiuZhen countries battles on the XiuZhen planet, but there are always exceptions, and if the sixth ranked XiuZhen countries interferes, then from that XiuZhen planet, it will be impossible for a second sixth ranked XiuZhen country to emerge. Only in extremely rare cases, as per the speculation amongst fifth ranked XiuZhen countries, will the sixth ranked be promoted to seventh ranked XiuZhen country, but perhaps it requires the country to have a network of sixth ranked XiuZhen country planets.

With the frequent fights in the foreign battlefields, there would often be a lot of corpses and other waste material, which require somebody to regularly clean up the sixth ranked XiuZhen countries regarding the clean up of foreign battlefields have strict rules, only third ranked or lower XiuZhen countries can do that task. And it might contain certain materials, which for lower ranked XiuZhen countries would be not less than heavenly treasures.

According to the fourth ranked XiuZhen countries as backed by their respective fifth ranked XiuZhen countries, the battlefields is divided into various regions, and so on.

Even the access to clean up is disputed upon so third ranked XiuZhen countries too, in order to gain qualifications of access to foreign battlefield clean-up task, leading to the existence of Sicklepod valley.

This Sicklepod valley, there is a huge seal formation, which was put down thousands of years ago, by a fourth ranked XiuZhen country Spirit forming stage expert, and those cultivators who are of JieDan stage upto Spirit forming stage, are unable to enter.

This was also why Teng Hua Yuan who came to know that Wang Lin is currently in SicklePod valley, was unable to enter the valley to kill him.

This sicklepod valley, is not only just outside the battlefield clean up ground, but is also the only entrance to the battlefield from the Zhao region.

Sixth ranked XiuZhen country foreign battlefield clean up rules, in addition to limiting the task to third ranked or lower XiuZhen countries, also require that the entrants must not exceed JieDan stage of cultivation.

Generally, after confirmation of eligibility, the foundation building cultivators inside, are transmitted to the area outside the foreign battlefield, fundamentally there is no need to go out of the valley, after the 50 year deadline expires, they would be transmitted back together.

Teng Hua Yuan knew of this, and precisely because of that massacred Wang Lin’s whole family, capturing their soul, to force out Wang Lin from the valley.

Otherwise, would have only gotten opportunity to kill Wang Lin fifty years later.

At this moment, the entire SicklePod valley, came to know that there is a slaughtering demon on the loose, his cultivation is unpredictable, so even said that he has reached JieDan stage, but nobody could guess how he got into SicklePod valley. [TLNote: At the sake of spoiling you and to prevent my own headaches, no he hasn’t reached JieDan yet]

Wang Lin in the Sicklepod valley, went all the way to the north, the spiritual force in his body, rolling more and more violently, the killing intent in his heart, with the murders over the past few days, not only did not decrease, but grew even more intense.

His mind had blanked out, he did not know how many people he had killed in the past few days, let alone knowing about how people had become so afraid of him, to the point of their faces changing colour at his mere mention.

A few days later, Wang Lin in a confused state, had reached the northernmost point of the Sicklepod valley, at this edge was a steep cliff, climbing up the cliff was the way out of the valley, of course there was also the seal formation which prevented people from going out, and anybody who tried would be bounced back into the valley.

These days, whenever Wang Lin thought about his parents, he would feel intense pain, as if somebody wanted to split apart his chest, every time he suffered this pain, he would spew out several mouthfuls of blood.

As the time wore on, his body grew weaker and weaker, but his spiritual force, kept moving more and more towards Ji Realm.

Standing before the cliff, Wang Lin looked up at the sky, suddenly knelt to the ground, and knocked his head on the ground heavily, two lines of blood and tears shed from his eyes, as he said in his heart: “Father, Mother, Tie Zhu unfilial……”

“Ah…….” with a sigh, echoed in Wang Lin’s mind.

“When did you wake up.” Wang Lin kneeling for a long time, stood up and with his eyes cold, said with a deep voice.

“Five days ago, Wang Lin, I heard Teng Hua Yuan’s message, the soul flag is a kind of magic only YuanYing can do, once soul is sealed, as long as soul does not come leave, when I restore my cultivation, I would be able to revive them.” Situ Nan said comfortingly.

Wang Lin, nodded silently.

“The reason that Teng Hua Yuan killed your loved ones, was out of fear that you would run away, so he did it force you to appear, Wang Lin, I don’t have much of my Yuan Ying essence left, can only support you by teleporting three times, use them cautiously, I want to continue sleeping, but I suggest you go outside the battlefield, where my time needed to recover would be reduced.” Situ Nan’s voice becoming increasingly weaker, eventually disappeared.

“Three times…….” Wang Lin’s mind became what is called sober and calm, as he frowned and muttered.

    Thanks for the chapter. Just letting you know “Upgradation” Isn’t a word it would probably be something like “For an upgrade in the rank of XiuZhen country” or “For improvement of the rank of XiuZhen country”. I’m not an expert in grammar but I thought you might want to know for future reference.

    • voidtranslations May 10, 2015 / 3:50 pm

      Yea sorry with the way English moves around changing country to country I have ended up picking some words that might not be correct. Thanks for pointing it out.

    • mattdgen May 10, 2015 / 4:22 pm

      well upgradation isnt used in most countries, but places like india its common.

  8. dagothur May 10, 2015 / 3:21 pm

    Thanks for the chapter

  11. Japanime May 10, 2015 / 3:29 pm

    Thanks for the translation. This update was confusing as hell though,what with the Xiuzhen countries getting their own planets. Did not expect the novel to go like this after reading the first couple of chapters and looking at the manhua, especially since it seemed to have some more focus on personal interactions like with that girl that was mentioned a lot. After the Xuan Dao sect took over Heng Yua Mountain its basically been a training montage with interspersed violence and info dumps in between. I have a feeling the MC’s going to become a vengeful character, but I look forward to seeing where he takes it. Thanks again.

    • voidtranslations May 10, 2015 / 3:50 pm

      Well the Universe expanded so it might need time to sink in

      • Japanime May 10, 2015 / 4:41 pm

        Yeah that’s true. Do you know though if the people Wang Li met earlier during his time in the Heng Yua sect will be important in the future or even show up again? Just curious, because so far all he has done is isolated himself and trained like hell, even though he only knows one skill.

    • Rider May 10, 2015 / 4:57 pm

      Liu mei will appear again, and she play a really important role.

      • voidtranslations May 10, 2015 / 5:06 pm

        Spoiler tags don’t work in Comments, so……

      • Xian Ni May 11, 2015 / 1:14 pm

        who is liu mei, is she the girl who got selected along with wang zao and wang zhou at the beginning?

    • Xian Ni May 11, 2015 / 6:14 pm

      In some works set in ancient china, the characters would use “world” to referrer to what we call china today, so maybe “planet” here means something other than where they live now or have knowledge of …

      • Xian Ni May 11, 2015 / 6:15 pm

        on earth*

      • Xian Ni May 11, 2015 / 6:32 pm

        or maybe they use some kind of space time FTL travel?

      • voidtranslations May 11, 2015 / 8:03 pm

        That is why I have been massively helped by having read Stellar Transformations, after digesting the absurdities in that novel, everything else seems “normal”. I would recommend you all to read it too. Also, Planet is really Planet, no metaphors (I think).

  12. Basty May 10, 2015 / 3:29 pm

    hope they wouldnt end up throwing galaxy …

  13. avery May 10, 2015 / 3:33 pm

    Thank you for the chapter! Dis shit is gettin good!

  14. Dain May 10, 2015 / 3:41 pm

    Did he collect the treasures of those who killed?!

    All that loot *read as Mr. Krabs* would have gone to waste ;_;

  15. Specter May 10, 2015 / 3:42 pm

    Damn, whatever his reasons Situ is damn reliable. Hope Lin finds a way to make Tian pay.

  16. Arkon May 10, 2015 / 3:47 pm

    That was a massive upgrade on how big this novel’s world is after all that info dump. I mean we’re talking bout planets here.

    • voidtranslations May 10, 2015 / 3:52 pm

      From my own personal assumptions, You ain’t seen nothing yet

      • Arkon May 10, 2015 / 3:59 pm

        Hmm, is the battle gonna be next after this chapter? From the info dump, does that mean only one sixth ranked xhiuzhen country is allowed per planet?

    • hacen May 10, 2015 / 4:08 pm

      i wonder if therell be a frieza v. goku fight at some point in future 😛

  17. hacen May 10, 2015 / 4:05 pm

    oh, so they really can be revived. cool

  18. crow13 May 10, 2015 / 4:14 pm

    what remains now is how will he deal with someone two stages above him.
    will he try to reach jidan stage first and steal half his powers with the curse ?

  19. Miks May 10, 2015 / 4:19 pm

    ahh i’m very very confused. can someone tell me what is xiuzhen countries ? is it a real country in a continent like a government or group with a cultivator? whats with a planet? does it mean in xian ni there’s a lot of planets??

    • bubuls May 10, 2015 / 4:27 pm

      Me too i don’t really get if every countries ( from 1 to 5th rank) all are on the same “planet” and where do the battles take place exactly?

      • Arkon May 10, 2015 / 4:34 pm

        I think they battle in space since they can acquire planets.

    • Rider May 10, 2015 / 5:02 pm

      The world in xian ni is really huge, unimaginable huge. As you read, you’ll see that there’ll be many more planets, and how they can be easily destroy by Wang Lin.

  20. PhanKai May 10, 2015 / 4:31 pm


    Hmmm…planets being owned by 6th ranked countries isn’t too surprising, next thing you know, the author will say 8-10th ranks(speculated ranks) will possess their own universe or something 🙂

  21. Tengeh May 10, 2015 / 4:34 pm

  36. Kryzin May 14, 2016 / 10:24 pm
