Apex War God Chapter 0008: Consuming Blood Ginseng

Blood ginseng!

Unlike ordinary ginseng, this was an extremely rare medicinal material. Its body was crystalline and crimson, giving off a strong ginseng odor. Whoever caught a whiff would be overcome with the desire to claim the root.

With the ability to boost one’s vitality and longevity, blood ginseng’s medicinal properties were more powerful than average ginseng. The material could also strengthen a cultivator’s bone and muscle. Of course, any sacred tonic made with it would be expensive.

Once, a long time ago, Yang Wu had seen a few of these roots in the Yangs’ treasure vault. His father had promised to gift him one once he reached the Warrior Realm.

Never in his wildest dreams had he expected Sooty to walk in with a blood ginseng root clenched between its teeth. Furthermore, half of the root was gone, leaving only a small amount of ginseng. His heart clenched at the sight.

The black pup walked up to him, tail wagging as if proud of what it had found.

He stooped down and carefully took the blood ginseng root, lamenting, “Sooty, oh, Sooty. You’ve wasted a treasure!”

Though the root was small, Yang Wu considered it exceptionally valuable due to its rarity.

Sooty’s tongue lolled, and when the little dog noticed the sealing pearl in Yang Wu’s other hand, a spark flashed in its eyes. Woof, woof! It barked softly.

It was about to snatch the bead from the young man’s hand, but Yang Wu reacted quickly, pulling the hand back. “Don’t mess around, Sooty. You can’t eat this,” he scolded the pup nervously.

Barking, the little dog jumped twice, attempting to snatch the bead away, but each attempt was easily dodged. “I can give you anything but this. This bead may play a role in my plans; you can’t eat it.”

The dog rolled its eyes and finally retreated to a corner, no longer interested. Circling its spot and stretching lazily, it went to sleep.

Yang Wu dismissed the pup as he returned to his careful examination of the sealing pearl in his right hand. With a glance at the small blood ginseng root in his left, a gratified smile spread across his face. “Heaven has certainly lent me a hand. With these two items, I won’t need to be concerned with how soon I’ll reach my previous cultivation status.”

Without further ado, Yang Wu stored the sealing pearl and took a small bite out of the blood ginseng. He did not dare bite off too large a chunk, knowing it might be too potent for his body. If he could not metabolize the ginseng properly, he would waste this chance and potentially harm himself in the process.

Translator Notes

A small shift in posting dates. For now, I'll be posting on Tuesdays and Fridays, 1145 am GMT +8

I am looking to increase release rates in the future, but things are moving a little slow at the moment.

Novel Notes

Hi everyone! How are you all doing? Anyway, I'm here to ask for some help today. I recently discovered another grammar checker tool called prowritingaid and am switching over from Grammarly Premium to that cause it's been pretty buggy on my google docs. Anyway, apparently, Prowritingaid has a referral program that can help me save costs. If I can get ten people to sign up for FREE accounts and edit using it for a bit, they will give me a free one-year premium license, and if I get twenty people, that's a lifetime license. I do plan to pay for the premium (likely lifetime), but I wanna try and save costs at this moment, esp since the income coming from translating is not good at the moment, and I'm still running on savings.

So I am now asking that you help me out by signing up and using it for a bit (You will need to test out some text, otherwise the referral will not count. Just copy in maybe a long document and go through some of their edits.). Here is my referral link.

You can also request for a free 2 week trial for the premium here:

Here's a little incentive to help me out too, if you can prove that you have signed up (You can show me a screenshot on discord), I'll give you 500 Dragon Scales 🐉, which is equal to a one chapter patreon access for one month.


Join the Discord to chat about the novel or anything else and earn the server currency that can be exchanged for advanced chapters:

Check out my Youtube channel to watch me play games as well as the occasional live translation session:
Also, check out my Twitch, give us a hand and drop me a follow. We do a weekly stream playing games while discussing Chinese cultivation, culture, and novel topics. I also do live translation sessions, or games.

Check out DragonInWhite Merch at the DragonInWhite Merch Store:
Do support the Patreon as that is our only source of income. However, there are no chapters for AWG as we simply do not have the stockpile for that. You get advance chapters for both EIF and TOOLATE. You also will get TOOLATE chapters, but Martial Disciple tier max. Any higher still limits you to max 8 chapters for TOOLATE. EIF Chapters are available for all tiers.
