Xian Ni Glossary

Cultivation Stages (in ascending order): Concentrating Qi (Divided into fifteen layers), Foundation Building, JieDan, YuanYing, Spirit Forming, Ying Bian, Ascension.

  • Lao Si – Lao refers to ranking between siblings while indicating closeness and Si means Four/Fourth. [Meaning courtesy OSTNT]

  • Liandan – Pill of immortality, or ability increasing pills [Credit to OSTNT]
  • Dao Fan – A Place where you make pills [Credit to OSTNT]
  • XiuXian – Cultivation or the practice of immortal techniques necessary to become immortal; I consider XiuXian to hold the approximate same meaning as Cultivation from Douluo Dalu or Practice from Stellar Transformations.
  • XiuZhen – Also Cultivation (One of the methods to be precise)
  • Saint – Immortal (Pinyin: Xianren)
  • Neidan – Neidan literally translates to inner alchemy

    what does a spirit pill do again?

    • Fernando Zhuang April 14, 2015 / 6:09 am

      I think it has the same purpose as the enhanced water that the mc uses but a lot weaker

    Hello good sir.

    First of all let me state that I really aprreciate all your ahrd work translating this awesome Chinese Novel.

    Somewhere around chapter 35 I mixed up all the character names. So i am rereading from the start and creating a list of characters.

    Once I am done with it, Can I suggest adding that lsit fo characters to the glossary?

    • voidtranslations April 19, 2015 / 8:42 pm

      Sure no problem, I would credit you with that list ofc.

      • fidelc123 April 19, 2015 / 9:16 pm

        OK Then. I will have it ready in 2-3 weeks as a business trip in RL will keep me very busy for a while.

    can you also include the rankings/powerlevels?

  5. Tyler Blackburn April 28, 2015 / 6:46 am

    Please include Cultivation Levels and any Paths that show up in the story.

  6. wes174 April 28, 2015 / 11:49 pm

    what are lingshi’s again?

    • voidtranslations April 29, 2015 / 12:00 am

      Spirit Stones

  7. Kiks May 1, 2015 / 5:13 pm

    umm, what’s a gossary if you’re not putting in there cultivation levels which appear in every chapter nowadays….. can’t you update those since it’s become a pain to read the chapters and guess who’s on what cultivation rank from the chinese names.

    • razkal2014 May 16, 2015 / 6:50 pm

      I second this…Because i get confused at times trying to remember these cultivation levels and whatnot

  8. Inquiry1 May 19, 2015 / 8:38 pm

    I still dont understand what the water root thing is(When the two sects were fighting one of the opponents was a “single water root”) Is that a way of practice?

    • TurtleMe August 27, 2015 / 3:48 pm

      It was explained by Situ Nan that everyone has 5? roots for all of the elements, but because they have 5, it is often in discord with one another, therefore becoming chaotic. Having single water root means they only have one root or specialize in one particular root therefore not having the discourse between the other roots. Hope it clarifies a little bit

    • Prabhat August 31, 2015 / 12:35 pm

      Water roots as i understand are inner talent or attribute of person the more elemental more talented peraon will be

  9. random May 20, 2015 / 7:27 pm

    Void, probably can add in there are 3 parts in each stage above foundation building too. Like, early, mid and late(peak).

  10. SWolf June 13, 2015 / 1:55 am

    where does FakeDan cultivation fit in?
    is it the same as JieDan stage?

  11. Ali July 19, 2015 / 11:46 pm

    I got a suggestion to make concerning the naming of Ji, Dao And Shi Realms, Ji = Dark Realm , Dao = Neutral realm & Shi = Light Realm
