Chapter 195 Result and Great Western City
From there onward, Fang Xingjian went through multiple attempts of synthesis, one after another. He first threw both the Supreme Mistwind Sword and the Radiant Light Sword Technique onto the Ether Sword Ripples.
After succeeding, he then continued his repeated attempts to set the Supreme Mistwind Sword onto the Radiant Light Sword Technique.
However, cultivating the Supreme Mistwind Sword and Radiant Light Sword Technique was not as fast as compared to the other Nurturing techniques. It would take about one to two days for him to reach the maximum of level 30 for these sword techniques.
Therefore, during Fang Xingjian's stay on the snow mountain, in his consciousness each skill seed which represented a sword technique continued to be smashed toward the Ether Sword Ripples' skill seed. With each collision, there would be countless exchanges and information merges.
It made Fang Xingjian feel as if he was a computer in a human form, his consciousness leaking out a tremendous number of data waterfalls.
Just like that, repeating the cycle of cultivating sword arts, then going through skill synthesis, cultivating sword arts, going through skill synthesis, Fang Xingjian analyzed the situation of the skill seeds' repeated collisions in his mind. Finally, half a month before the Regional Selection, Fang Xingjian finally succeeded.
The new Radiant Light Sword Technique was not only able to emit white-colored sword light to confuse the enemies, it could also be used to control the air current to refract daylight, moonlight, and various other light sources in order to kill enemies.
Holding onto his Demoness' Howl, Fang Xingjian did not dare to use it with the risk of creating too powerful a howl in the snow mountains, and thus only moved slowly. Like that, he was able to see the currents from the atmosphere encompassing the longsword. In the next moment, a ray of sunlight shone on the sword's body, and in that instant, reflected through the vapour in the atmosphere.
With a swoosh accompanied by a sword thrust, a ray of white light shot out from the sword's tip. It was akin to a laser beam sweeping across the ground, melting a tremendous amount of snow and raising white steam all around. It was as if one had been teleported from the snow mountains to a hot spring.
'Its refractions can kill enemies?'
Fang Xingjian smiled. The speed light travelled at, coupled with the longsword's refraction effect which could create a temperature of about one thousand degrees celsius, this new set of sword technique was much stronger in comparison to the Radiant Light Sword Technique and the Supreme Mistwind Sword.
Furthermore, this sword technique had retained the Supreme Mistwind Sword's ability to control the atmosphere, which had not suffered too much of a downgrade.
Fang Xingjian named this sword technique the 'Luminous Heaven Soaring Slash'.
Once the Ether Sword Ripples was smashed and merged together with the Supreme Mistwind Sword and Radiant Light Sword Technique, it had also received a qualitative improvement.
The new Ether Sword Ripples still increased his strength by 50% with each increasing level, and still inherited the practitioner's highest attack speed. However, at the same time, the Ether Sword Ripples could also change its frequencies to be like light rays of different frequencies, showcasing two special effects, of high and low temperatures.
Looking at the snow on the ground now turned into a hot spring, with a tap of his finger, Fang Xingjian made over ten streams of Ether Sword Ripples. They swept out with a chilling aura, making the melted snow drop in temperature once again, and turning it into a puddle of icy water.
He then sent over ten streams of Ether Sword Ripples slashing through space, making the surrounding air to suddenly become scorching hot, and then once again increased the melted snow's temperature.
With the Ether Sword Ripples' special ice and fire effects, his battle prowess had increased yet again.
With that, after two and a half months' worth of cultivation, not only had Fang Xingjian completed his skill syntheses, his attributes had also increase due to his daily cultivation. Millions of potential points had been used up to increase his strength and reaction, his Waves had leveled up to level 7, and his attributes had increased as well. At the same time, due to this period of calm and peace along with the constantly increasing ether synchronization rate, his mental cultivation method had also finally reached level 5.
Therefore, his stats had now changed to:
Name Fang Xingjian

Looking at his abilities which had once again soared, Fang Xingjian exhaled.
'It's time to prepare for the participation in the Regional Selection.'
The current Fang Xingjian finally had the confidence to participate in the Regional Selection, secure the top position, and become the Regional Champion.
In the next moment, Fang Xingjian's silhouette abruptly disappeared. He had already turned into a series of afterimages, hurrying toward the south, toward the Great Western Region, the location where the Regional Selection would be held. It was the Great Western Region's focus of political powers, the city where the Regional Academy was located. It had gathered countless important characters in the Great Western Region, including the Governor who managed all the Knight Academies, the Regional Chief which managed all government boards, and the Marshal who leads tall the troops in the Great Western Region.
It was the center of the Great Western Region, the Great Western City.
A few days later, Fang Xingjian had made his way through mountains and across waters, cultivating as he rushed, finally arriving in Great Western City.
Looking at this enormous city, three times bigger than Kirst, with a population of over five hundred thousand, where countless vital departments and important characters of the Great Western Region gathered, and which had up to a hundred stationed Conferred Knights, Fang Xingjian smiled with excitement.
He would pass the Regional Selection here, becoming the Regional Champion. Here he would soar, becoming a Divine level existence. From here, he will then head back to the Divine Continent and do what he needed to.
But to participate in the Regional Selection, he would first need to register.
Worried that he would be late for the registration, the first thing Fang Xingjian did was to ask for directions, and then head toward the place in Great Western City where the registration was being held.
There was plenty of traffic in Great Western City, and it was extremely crowded. However, Fang Xingjian headed up to the tops of the buildings, leaping from roof to roof as he proceeded, and asking for directions when he was uncertain. He arrived at the registration counter not long after it had turned dark.
He went in and said to a receptionist, "I'm here to register for the Regional Selection."
"Oh?" The receptionist was a young lady in her twenties. She was wearing a uniform, her face filled with fatigue. Although she was an ordinary person, she did not appear to be shocked when she saw Fang Xingjian. It was because in a place like the Great Western City, Knights were only too common.
Moreover, the place she was stationed at was the registration counter. How many Knights had already appeared before her?
However, she merely shook her head and said, "You've come too late. The registration is over."
Fang Xingjian frowned, "Isn't there another fifteen days before the Regional Selection?"
The young lady threw him a glance and replied, annoyed, "The registration started a month ago and ended half a month before the Regional Selection. Haven't you heard this from the people in your academy?" However, seeing how tattered Fang Xingjian was, she pouted and said, "Hmph, you must have just returned from your cultivation journey and thus the academy was unable to inform you?
"But there's no other way. You'll have to wait for the next round."
How could Fang Xingjian possibly wait for the next round? He frowned and said, "Is there another solution to this? I must definitely take part in this Regional Selection."
The young lady furiously shook her head, but she also finally noticed that Fang Xingjian had been talking to her with his eyes closed all this time. She could not help but ask, "Hey, all this time you've been talking to me with your eyes shut. Aren't you being too rude?"
Fang Xingjian was stunned for a moment before he calmly replied, "I'm blind. I can't see anything."
The young lady froze for a moment, then a hint of fury flashed on her face. "Are you kidding me?! You're trying to register despite being blind? Do you know of the Pantheon Monument Observation in the Regional Selection? What the hell are you registering for?"
Fang Xingjian frowned and coldly replied, "I've already attained Heaven's Perception. Within a ten meter radius, I can see clearer than using the naked eye."
The young lady fell into a daze and in the next moment, she cried out in surprise, "You... You've attained Heaven's Perception? Then, you're able to go through the second transition at any time?"
