Chapter 494: Stubborn As A Mule
Translator: Yukidaruma Translations Editor: Yukidaruma Translations
Above the Fang Clan's building, Fang Xingjian stood in midair. Each step he took would step on the void space, allowing him to stand upright in midair.
Usually, he had to step on the air at high speed in order to fly in midair. However, this time around, he did not do any action and was just standing there quietly. He was like a fish swimming in the water or a bird flying in the sky.
Tyrant, who was also floating in midair, looked down at the prosperous city and said, "You've already successfully mastered the Air Stepping specialty? With this specialty, you'll be able to tap into the earth's geomagnetic forces and use them to fly in the air. In midair, your explosive prowess will be no different from when you're on land."
As Fang Xingjian walked forward, he sensed how he was standing on the geomagnetic field. It felt no different from when he was stepping on the ground. There was also the backlash of energy, and he could run and jump as he normally did.
This was the specialty: Air Stepping. It was also the specialty Fang Xingjian had newly acquired.
During this period of time, with Tyrant's body which had reached the level of a Demigod with two tiers of perfection, it had been much easier and simpler for Fang Xingjian to condense his specialty seeds. His physical strength would change almost every minute and every second.
Tyrant looked at Fang Xingjian, who was standing in the air, and he felt a vague sense of pressure.
'Ever since this guy pushed back Li Shuanghua's clone, the aura he exudes has become increasingly unfathomable. Now, even I'm not aware of what level his sword arts mastery has reached.'
Then Tyrant looked down at the prosperous city, and his eyes lit up with a curious glow, "The people in this world are really special. Although there are very few Divine level experts, the mechanisms here are very developed and it's even possible for them to mass produce level 29 experts."
As the overlapping area between the two worlds was the sea, Tyrant had followed Fang Xingjian from Miracle World's Western Sea to this world's Eastern Sea. All along, he had thought that he had simply followed Fang Xingjian to a new country.
Fang Xingjian did not reply and just continued cultivating his fifth God-Slaying Sword.
'A Divine level expert's powerful martial will can transmit at light speed, extending out to a 1,000-meter range. Therefore, it isn't practical to hope to use one's physical body to face it.
'After all, each of the other party's thoughts would be transmitted at light speed. When each thought strikes the individual, he may not even have the time to clench his fist. Therefore, it would be impossible to use one's physical body to go against it.
'Will is the only thing that can go against another will. Although my 'Light Pursuit' can result in a time lag, attacking at one-hundredth of a second before they react, this little bit of time wouldn't be enough to kill them. It won't bring about an absolute advantage.
'The damaging prowess of the fourth sword, 'All-Conquering', is powerful enough, but it isn't as fast as the Light Pursuit's sword ripples. It would too easy for them to obstruct and dodge the fourth sword.
'I still need the fifth sword before I can have a decisive advantage.'
Fang Xingjian was confident that with his abilities, and the Four God-Slaying Swords as well as the Heaven's Volition Sword Intent and the Terra Ingurgitation, he was a good match for the Earth's Divine level experts when they were on Earth, which was a unique battlefield. However, for him to be even stronger, there was a need for him to be capable of performing the fifth God-Slaying Sword.
To Fang Xingjian, this sword was one which could allow the weak to overcome the strong, and thus become able to directly kill the will of a Divine level expert. It was a purely mental sword attack.
Just as Fang Xingjian was slowly condensing his fifth sword, there was a commotion at the ground floor of the Fang Clan's building.
Fang Xingjian stood above the rooftop, looking down at the rows of walking robot soldiers. He said in surprise, "Robots?" He lifted his head and discovered many metallic monsters flying about in the air. Rows of high speed machine guns and missiles kept locking onto his body.
Fang Yuehe said a little nervously, "They are a purely mechanized troop. They are also the trump troop that our Fang Clan formed in the Federation, the Zero troop."
"Powerful Conferred Knights or Demigods, or even Divine level experts would be able to destroy an ordinary Warrior's will with just a thought. Therefore, the robot troop was specially developed to fight against consciousness attack.
"The exterior of these robots are all made from alloy, and they are equipped with various weapons which were designed to go against second transition enemies. Xingjian, you'll have to be careful."
Fang Yuehe looked at Fang Xingjian, a little worried. In a mere couple of hours, Fang Xingjian had removed Li Shuanghua from her position. However, although Fang Xingjian was the clan's head in name, the actual management had been left to Fang Yuehe. Fang Xingjian did not even implement any restrictions on him and had no intentions on interfering at all.
This made Fang Yuehe, who had been suppressed by his younger brother and mother for an extended period of time, felt extremely exhilarated.
He even increasingly hoped that Fang Xingjian would be able to defeat Li Shuanghua and truly become the clan's head. This would allow him to maintain the status of being above many and yet reporting only to one.
Fang Xingjian listened to Fang Yuehe's introduction, looked down at the robotized troop, and shook his head. "Stubborn as a mule."
To Fang Xingjian, with his sword of 'Infiltrating Void', there would be no robot troops that could be his match. Afterall, no matter how hard or how sturdy their exteriors were, could their chips and circuits be just as sturdy?
Fang Xingjian's sword of 'Infiltrating Void' could penetrate everything physical, attacking from within his opponent's body.
'Li Shuanghua should be aware of my sword of Infiltrating Void
'Is she thinking of trying to deepen the conflict between the Federation and me? To try to kill me using another person's blade?'
Fang Xingjian laughed coldly in his heart, 'Then I'll smash that entire blade, crushing even the person holding it. I shall see if you'll come out then.'
At that moment, Fang Yuehe's cellphone rang, and he picked it up. Wearing a shocked expression, he looked at Fang Xingjian and said, "It's a call from General Tang. He wants to talk to you."
Fang Xingjian shook his head and got Fang Yuehe to hang up the phone.
He then looked at the robot troop on the ground. With a flash, he completely disappeared. Fang Xingjian activated his sword of Infiltrating Void, and streams of sword force exploded inside the robots' bodies.
Then he continued to move through the spatial gaps, massacring the surrounding robots. It felt as simple as cutting grass. His attention was not placed on this at all.
Fang Xingjian thought, 'If Li Shuanghua still doesn't appear after I've killed this batch, then I'll kill my way to the Federation's headquarters. Even if I have to turn the entire place upside down, I'll get them to tell me where she is.'
Several kilometers away, General Tang heard the busy tone from the phone and became so angry that his eyes turned bloodshot. "Arrogant! This kid is too arrogant! Mobilize all the troops! I want to beat this kid up till he kneels down and begs me!"
General Tang's expression appeared increasingly vicious as he looked at the control tower. The many green dots representing the robot warriors all flew rapidly toward the direction of Fang Clan's building.
Each of these robot warriors were worth several tens of millions and could be said to be weapons that were extremely expensive as well as extremely powerful. Not only did they render all consciousness attacks as useless, the robot warriors were even equipped with laser weapons which were targeted toward cultivators with high speed. They also had high-tech equipment which were specially invented to deal with Warriors with powerful bodies, such as ones that created vibrations in the joints of cultivators who excelled in strength.
However, the light spots in the control tower had only moved for one or two seconds, then at the next moment, all the light spots dimmed simultaneously.
'What's going on?"
"Is there a problem with the communications?"
"The network isn't down..."
"The control tower isn't down..."
"Activate the satellites to check out the situation on the scene."
On the big screen, the streets near the Fang Clan's building were clearly presented. However, when the people from the control tower saw the rows of robots collapsing to the ground along the streets while emitting black smoke, General Tang's mouth opened wide.
Thinking of the value of this robot troop, and thinking of how much of his time and wealth he had invested to get them to what they were today, General Tang was overwhelmed with fury. Then he sprayed out a mouthful of blood.
At the next moment, everything before him turned black, and he lost consciousness.
