Chapter 369 Improvement
In the latter part of September, toward the end of the third month since Fang Xingjian first entered the Regional Academy, Fang Xingjian was better able to focus on his cultivation thanks to Anderson's help.
After Fang Xingjian scanned all the Killing techniques from the library and returned to the Sacred Land, he continued reading through all the Killing techniques to search for the ones suitable to be synthesized with the Zenith Light Sword Formation, Ether Sword Ripples, or the Prodigious Demolition Sword.
'Flying Heaven Sword Technique. A speed type Killing technique that accelerates magnetism through the trails formed by ether particles.'
Fang Xingjian kept going through this top notch Killing technique in his mind. There was no lack of Killing techniques which focused on speed, and the Flying Heaven Sword Technique was one of the top notch Killing techniques in this area. It was a powerful Killing technique which had been researched by many people for many years.
Unless there were very some particularly special Killing techniques, Fang Xingjian would still choose to cultivate top notch Killing techniques just like this Flying Heaven Sword Technique, which he was currently thinking through.
With a tap of his sword fingers, the pieces of stones under his feet flew about, and he started to carve the manual for the Flying Heaven Sword Technique on a stone slab.
In the days to follow, aside from the daily cultivation of his attributes, Waves, and mental cultivation method, he would continue flipping through the books of sword techniques he had obtained from the library. He would look for suitable sword techniques, cultivate them to the maximum level and then synthesize them into the Zenith Light Sword Formation, Ether Sword Ripples, or the Prodigious Demolition Sword.
The second level of the mystical prints increased his cultivation speed even further, and his 40% ether synchronization rate had also allowed the success rate of his skill synthesis to reach over 40%. This allowed his sword arts to progress in leaps and bounds.
However, although he had made multiple successes with his synthesis, increasing the prowess, speed, accuracy, and other aspects of the sword techniques, Fang Xingjian could not be bothered to change their names. He continued to keep them as Zenith Light Sword Formation, Ether Sword Ripples, and Prodigious Demolition Sword.
Half a month passed just like that. Fang Xingjian spent most of his time cultivating in the Sacred Land. He would also occasionally spend time at the Killing Techniques Palace to cultivate his control of the heavenly thunders and terrestrial magnetism to strengthen his body.
There would also be times when he had a craving for food. So, he would then head to the eatery in the Great Western City which sold grilled meat, just to have a taste of the Vulcan Grilled Meat.
With his speed, it would take him less than a minute to travel over ten kilometers, making it no different than if the eatery was just in his backyard.
Of course, the Heaven's Volition Sword Intent would also need to be fed constantly. However, since he had scanned through all the Killing sword techniques in the library, there was nothing to worry about for this area.
Within slightly more than half a month of relentless cultivation, his Waves levelled up once again. His Prodigious Astral Divine Powers Waves was now at level 4.
Therefore, by the start of October, Fang Xingjian's abilities progressed tremendously once again. His attributes had become:

On this day, Fang Xingjian finished up the cultivation of his sword arts. Then he rose into the air once again, creating air explosions in midair with his steps, and flew in the direction of the Great Western City.
As he advanced, he could sense the increasing pressure from the surrounding atmosphere.
As his speed increased, so did the air resistance. This was the reason that, although Fang Xingjian's agility attribute had increased once again, his actual speed had not increased by much.
Fang Xingjian started pondering, 'There's a limit to the speed at which one can move in the atmosphere. If this were to carry on, the effect of my agility attribute would be increasingly weaker as well.'
Muffled rumbles continued to thunder in the sky. In the eatery, Diana frowned and looked out the window, "Why is it that there has been thunder often of late but no rain?"
One of the waitress smiled and said, "Boss, Young Master Fang is here again."
Diana lifted her head, looked at Fang Xingjian who had just stepped in from the entrance, and said, "So be it."
"Hehe, this Young Master Fang is really devoted, making a trip here every three to four days.
"Buttons made from gold... If I were you, I'd have accepted him long ago."
Diana said tartly, "You don't want you job anymore?" She touched the golden buttons in her pocket. Her mother had gotten the button appraised, and it turned out that the buttons really were made of gold. When she thought of this, Diana walked away from the grill and right up to Fang Xingjian, then she placed the two buttons before him.
"These are too valuable. I can't accept them."
Fang Xingjian looked at Diana's solemn expression and said, "I like your grilled meat. They are worth this price."
"How could grilled meat possibly be worth this much? You can take them back." Diana smiled and shook her head, "If you like eating the grilled meat, you can just patronize more often."
Just then, the door to the eatery was pushed open again, and Diana's mother walked in. When she saw Fang Xingjian and Diana talking, a hint of wariness flashed in her eyes.
She grabbed the young man behind her and said, "Louis, come over here. Diana is here as well."
The young man was wearing a Knight's attire, and there was a hint of coldness on his face. When he looked at the grease and fumes in the eatery, he frowned slightly. However, when he saw Diana with her beautiful figure dressed in her chef uniform and her golden hair tied up in a ponytail, Louis broke into a smile.
"Diana, I've come over specially with your mother to visit you."
The two of them walked up to Fang Xingjian and Diana. The young man, Louis, threw a glance toward Fang Xingjian and asked, "Diana, is this your friend?"
Diana's mother immediately said, "No, he's just a customer who likes to eat the grilled meat Diana cooks."
"Haha, it's true that the meat Diana grills is delicious."
Diana threw an inpatient glance at her mother and then asked, "Louis, why are you free to come over?"
"Why? Is this childhood friend of yours unwelcome here?"
"Have some meat first. Don't be disturbing me while I'm working." Diana shook her head. Not long later, three servings of grilled meat were brought over. Fang Xingjian ate silently, occasionally breaking into a hint of a smile.
Diana's mother looked curiously at Fang Xingjian. This was her first time meeting the rumored Young Master Fang.
"Young lad." She looked at Fang Xingjian and asked, "You like the grilled meat Diana cooks, I take it?"
"Are you a Knight apprentice?"
"Then you're a Knight?" Diana's mother asked curiously. Although this young man seemed to be very rich, she was not willing to let Diana be with a profligate son either. If the other party was a Knight, then he would be quite a good prospect.
'This lad comes so often and seems to be sincere. For him to have buttons made from gold, he must come from a very rich family. It'll be good if he's a Knight. Sigh, if he isn't a Knight, the money he has will all be wasted one day, no matter how rich he is. Only one who has become a Knight is a person who stands above the rest and will be able to hold onto his family fortune.'
Hearing Fang Xingjian's reply, Diana's mother let out a soft sigh. She had decided on persuading Diana to not let her be blinded by Fang Xingjian's wealth.
This guy was not even a Knight apprentice, which meant that he did not practice martial arts at all. How could a guy like this survive in this world?
 Note: Due to prior mistranslation, Level 1 Unparalleled Sword Intent has been amended to Unparalleled Sword Intent - Apex.
