Chapter 382: White Bone Divine Weapon
Translator: Yukidaruma Translations Editor: Yukidaruma Translations
In the Sacred Land, Fang Xingjian sat on the ground in the training room with his legs crossed, while his hand held onto a translucent golden sphere.
Hints of light continued to emanate from the sunstone, surging into Fang Xingjian's arm and strengthening the Ether Effulgence Weapon in his hand.
His Ether Effulgence Weapon was a high-frequency type, and once it took a form, it would be very powerful. However, this was not where his talent lay in. Therefore, his cultivation rate was not fast enough and he did not spend time on it.
However, at this moment, Fang Xingjian was pushing the light within the sunstone ceaselessly, merging it into the Ether Effulgence Weapon. He could sense that his High Frequency Effulgence Weapon, Silver Fox, was progressing at an unbelievable rate.
As the Silver Fox continued to advance and its high frequency trembles got increasingly faster, Fang Xingjian opened up his palm, and streams of water vapor condensed into a longsword. Silver-colored fog began to surround it. In the blink of an eye, the fog encompassed the entire sword, and it started to tremble.
5,000 times... 7,000 times... 8,000 times... 12,000 times... 15,000 times per second...
The frequency of the sword's trembles got increasingly faster, but they eventually stopped at a frequency of 20,000 times per second. The sunstone in Fang Xingjian's hand also lost all of its glow and became a dull stone without any light.
Right now, Fang Xingjian's Ether Divine Art had reached level 12 and possessed a trembling frequency of 20,000 times per second.
Looking at the mist and glow forming around the water sword due to its trembling, Fang Xingjian exerted a slight force in his hand and plunged the water sword into the ground. He had used almost no strength at all, but the ground was sliced opened by the Silver Fox as if it was just air.
Looking at the level 12 Effulgence Weapon, Fang Xingjian broke into a satisfied smile. Now that he had the Silver Fox, even if he did not perform the Prodigious Demolition Sword and just used the Silver Fox with the Unparalleled Sword Intent - Apex, his sword techniques would have a terrifying damage prowess.
Then he started scanning the various Killing techniques in his mind, trying to decide which sword technique to cultivate next.
At the next moment, he found his target-White Bone Divine Weapon.
This was a sword technique which could allow one to solely draw out their spine slowly. It was also a Killing technique which could constantly strengthen one's backbone and the toughness of one's bones. The reason why Fang Xingjian had decided on the White Bone Longsword was because his bones were at present innately sword bones. This was due to the Sword Bones specialty of a Heavenly Sword Sovereign. Additionally, this meant that the toughness of his bones was comparable to that of a Superior Divine Weapon of the same level.
So, it was a pity for these sword bones to only be used for defence and to convert strength into sword force. He hoped that he would be able to use all his sword bones to attack through this White Bone Longsword. It would mean that he had gotten himself several tens of Superior Divine Weapon in a short period of time.
This would be particularly useful as his specialty, Single Sword World Subjugation, required him to use a sword. After cultivating the White Bone Longsword, he would no longer need to condense vapor or rocks to form swords each and every time he battled. Instead, he would be able to fight even with his bare hands.
Since he was filled with sword bones throughout his body, he did not even need to draw out the bones from his body. He could just fight directly. Each punch he launched would be like a sword attack.
In fact, Superior Divine Weapons were initially made from processing the bone remains of Conferred Knights.
Since it could work on dead people, then it could naturally work on the living. Moreover, Fang Xingjian's 'Sword Bones' specialty had saved him a lot of effort in strengthening his bones. Additionally, it would make his cultivation of the White Bone Longsword even faster.
Fang Xingjian looked at this sword technique and suddenly recalled,'I think the academy has this course?'
Of course, not everyone could be as rich as Fang Xingjian and easily purchase a Superior Divine Weapon. The 'White Bone Divine Weapon' allowed for the weapon to become stronger together with the cultivator and was very practical. Therefore, the academy would naturally have this course.
One day later, in a big hall at the Great Western Region's Regional Academy.
The teacher on the platform was explaining the cultivation method of the White Bone Divine Weapon while over ten students were listening attentively.
Fang Xingjian was one of them. Learning was human's greatest merit, and listening to a class would have at least two times the efficiency than for one to self-study. With an experienced teacher explaining, Fang Xingjian was naturally able to learn faster than if he were to learn it by himself.
Halfway through the class, Fang Xingjian's White Bone Divine Weapon was already at level 6. He could sense that all the bones throughout his body seemed to contain countless sharp auras. In this moment, they seemed to be like explosions, wanting to gush out of his body and have a good kill.
Fang Xingjian easily suppressed the sharp auras of his sword bones while listening attentively to the teacher's explanation. A lot of the experience had been accumulated over many generations, and it was not something which Fang Xingjian alone could consider in entirety. This was not related to one's talent; it was purely experience.
At another corner, Wang Tiangang occasionally glanced in Fang Xingjian's direction. He had not expected that Fang Xingjian would come to pick up this White Bone Divine Weapon technique as well.
'Although this Killing technique seemed as if it will equip a person with an additional Superior Divine Weapon, what it can do is actually increase the quality of the bones and greatly strengthen the body's resistance to impacts. Moreover, the spine is the crux of force exertion, so if one were to cultivate it to become a Superior Divine Weapon, there would be countless benefits.'
Looking at Fang Xingjian, Wang Tiangang tried to speculate every now and then about how the former's learning speed compared to his own.
Just then, many people walked into the hall.
'Hmm?' Wang Tiangang looked over casually and saw that Head of Department James and Hoppes, who was the head of the sword arts team, had each respectively sat on Fang Xingjian's left and right.
After a while, there were even the higher management staff members of the other faculties coming into the hall and taking a seat. The students who had been listening to the class were now looking around in astonishment. In less than ten minutes, over 20 members of the academy's higher management had entered the hall.
However, the students were Conferred Knights after all. Although they were astonished, they continued to listen to the class.
It was only when the top person in the Great Western Region, Governor Devitt, also took a seat behind Fang Xingjian that everyone lost their cool.
The teacher on the platform stopped as well and cast a questioning gaze at Devitt. The latter signaled for him to continue with the class. However, everyone's minds were no longer on the class but had gathered around Fang Xingjian's surroundings instead.
Wang Tiangang clenched his teeth and looked at Fang Xingjian.'What has this guy done again?' He activated his Heaven's Perception and tried his best to listen to what was happening around Fang Xingjian.
In fact, most of the people in the hall were all listening in. Fang Xingjian and the others did not pay the students any heed and let them be. It was a fair and aboveboard transaction, so there was no need to keep it a secret.
Moreover, it was impossible to keep such a tremendous sum of money under wraps.
Head of Department James sat next to Fang Xingjian and smiled bitterly, saying,"Lad, you've kept us really anxious."
"Aren't you being too anxious? There's no difference if something like this is handled two days earlier or two days later."
James shook his head and said, letting out a sigh,"The scene from the Pearl City was just hearsay, and there weren't too many things that were left behind. However, that sword attack you left behind a few days ago... To be honest, when I first saw it, I got a shock too. Even I might not be able to unleash a force of that degree."
Fang Xingjian smiled inwardly. The prowess of the Terrene Shrine was related to the environment. Back then, the Terrene Shrine had been underground, making it equivalent to piling up all the earth's gravity into that single sword attack. So, undoubtedly, the prowess would be tremendous.
Fang Xingjian asked,"Ten million?"
"Ten million. It'll be given in ten instalments." This time around, Governor Devitt was the one who spoke. This person, who was at the top of the Great Western Region, was looking at Fang Xingjian right now. His gaze was scorching, like there were countless thoughts behind it.
