Chapter 383: Ten Million
Translator: Yukidaruma Translations Editor: Yukidaruma Translations
At the mention of ten million gold, Wang Tiangang's body shivered. That was ten million!
For a level 26 Conferred Knight like himself, it would take everything he had to bring out 500,000 gold. Yet, to think that Governor Devitt was going to give Fang Xingjian ten million gold?! What kind of joke was this?
He stared at Fang Xingjian and tried very hard to listen, wanting to know what the trade was for.
Hearing Devitt's words, Fang Xingjian shook his head and said,"It's already November now, so there are only eight months till next year's National Selection. Being paid over ten instalments is useless for me now."
A few people exchanged glances when they head what Fang Xingjian said. Around a month ago, they had still been secretly laughing at how Fang Xingjian did not know any better for wanting to participate in the National Selection.
However, right now, Fang Xingjian was already in a discussion with them concerning the flow of ten million gold. That sword attack launched on the Terrene Shrine was one which even a level 29 expert might not be able to achieve.
Governor Devitt's brows knitted together tightly."Then we'll give it to you in eight instalments."
"Seven instalments. All the money must come in before June next year."
Devitt's frown deepened. However, when he thought of the Terrene Shrine's ruins, he forced a nod and said,"That can be done, but you must guarantee that from now onward, you won't impart it to anyone else. This would mean that we've purchased the exclusive rights."
"Sure. But may I be so bold to ask, who will you allow to cultivate the Prodigious Astral Divine Powers Waves after you've gotten it?"
Devitt spoke with a solemn look,"Of course, there will be a strict selection process. We'll give it to people with exceptional merit and are loyal to the Empire."
Concurrently, a stream of information current entered Fang Xingjian's mind.
"Haha, we're considered to be on the same side. Of course, we'll be giving the access for these Waves to those who are loyal to the Second Prince. With this mental cultivation method, we will be considered as having an additional trump card when we go up against the First Prince."
It was just like what Fang Xingjian had expected. Since the Second Prince had purchased such powerful Waves, he would naturally only let those who were loyal to him cultivate it. As for the details of how he would go about it, that was of course to put up many cultivating conditions as barriers. There was no way that every Conferred Knight in the academy would be able to get access to cultivate it.
This meant that the Second Prince was using the academy's money to nurture his own subordinates.
As the discussion ended, Fang Xingjian and the academy's higher-positioned managing staff left. The details of the exchange would be left to their subordinates to handle.
Then not long after they left, the entire hall became extremely lively.
"Prodigious Astral Divine Powers Waves? That is the Divine level legacy Fang Xingjian comprehended from the Pantheon Monument?"
"Ten million gold to purchase a set of Waves? Isn't this too wasteful?"
"That is a Divine level expert's Waves. Moreover, the Governor and the others aren't idiots. The fact that they are purchasing it at such a high price only goes to show that it's worth the money."
"The Waves of a Divine level expert... I wonder what are the requirements for one to be able to cultivate this set of Waves."
Simultaneously, feelings of jealousy and excitement flashed contradictingly through Wang Tiangang's mind.
'Fang Xingjian... To think that he managed to get his hands on ten million gold just like that. The academy's management has degenerated.
'But Fang Xingjian, to think that you would even dare hand out the Waves of a Divine level expert. Hmph. Wait till I've picked up the Prodigious Astral Divine Powers Waves, I'll be able to completely surpass you then.'
That night, in the Sacred Land's training room, the bones throughout Fang Xingjian's body continued to release kacha kacha crackling sounds. His joints were like blowoff valves , endlessly releasing surging power.
The White Bone Divine Weapon reached level 10. Then with a flash, Fang Xingjian tore through the air and landed a kick on a wall at 16 times that of supersonic speed.
Violent sword force gushed forth, tearing the walls apart and slashing through the air, then he continued to dash out into the sky.
Fang Xingjian sensed the state of his body with satisfaction. Right now, the sword bones throughout his body had been trained through the method of the White Bone Divine Weapon. Originally, the most time consuming part of cultivating the White Bone Divine Weapon was to strengthen one's bones. However, to Fang Xingjian, this was the easiest part.
It was because Fang Xingjian had the specialty, Sword Bones, allowing him to skip through many of the sections which required him to strengthen his bones.
Right now, his entire body was filled with swords. The specialty, Single Sword World Subjugation, was constantly activated, increasing his speed.
Moreover, his specialty, Sword Bones, converted his force exertion, causing each casually performed attack to be accompanied by violent sword force. Each punch and kick he lunged out with was equivalent to him launching a sword attack.
Taking in a deep breath, Fang Xingjian tapped with finger and started to cultivate sword technique, using his hand in place of a sword.
Three days later, the first instalment for the ten million was remitted into Fang Xingjian's account. With the money, Fang Xingjian planned to start cultivating the fourth level of the mystical prints directly.
This time around, aside from spending 400,000 gold on the purchase of materials, he even put up an anonymous reward in the black market for the precious materials he could not find.
This caused him to spend a total of 600,000 gold for materials which were worth only 400,000 gold. However, it did save Fang Xingjian a lot of time. Right now, he had no time but had plenty of money.
By spending the royalties for the Rebirth Sword Technique and the Prodigious Astral Divine Powers Waves so extravagantly, it allowed Fang Xingjian's abilities to improve at a crazy rate.
After the fourth level of the mystical prints, his aptitude increased once again. Both the rate of his sword arts cultivation and the increase in his Ether synchronization rate increased tremendously.
Then he started to focus fully on getting stronger. Over ten days passed by, and it was now late November. Fang Xingjian finally reached a 60% ether synchronization rate and became a level 25 Conferred Knight.
Concurrently, his Prodigious Astral Divine Powers Waves had also reached level 6. As his attributes increased, the prowess of the Terra Ingurgitation increased again as well.
As for the Zenith Light Sword Formation, Ether Sword Ripples, and Prodigious Demolition Sword, these techniques had also gotten increasingly powerful. Fang Xingjian's sword arts cultivation was getting increasingly unfathomable.
Fang Xingjian's Stats Window had become:

Fang Xingjian sensed the state of his physical body with his Heaven's Perception. He could see the wriggly movements of his many white blood cells as well as the many red blood cells which were incessantly transmitting nutrition throughout his body.
He had never been able to sense his own physical body so clearly before.
Fang Xingjian let out a deep breath. He had finally reached level 25. The next step was to slowly transform from a human into a god, slowly condensing specialty seeds and strengthening his body.
The fastest way to gain specialty seeds was through consuming heavenly and earthly treasures. There were many heavenly and earthly treasures which, after consuming, would allow the cultivator to immediately possess specialties.
Right now, the one thing that Fang Xingjian did not lack was money.
Other than the money he had spent during this period of time, he still had 350,000 gold. Even if he were to spend it all, another one million gold would be remitted into his account next month. Additionally, there would be two million the following month, and two million the month after. This would continue until he received the last one million in May next year. He had sufficient money to squander, so he could use them all on building up his body.
However, he had not gained anything in the area of his life span. Logically, a level 25 Conferred Knight would be able to understand their physical body very clearly and in turn increase their lifespan. However, Fang Xingjian was not able to sense his life span, nor did he know if he would still die in another three years or so.
