Chapter 353 Surround and Attack
The third tier for the synthesis of the sword techniques from the Killing Techniques Palace, the Phenomena Sword Formation, was a combination of the Thunderbolt Sword Technique, the Mountain Shifting Sword, and the Aquatic Sword Formation.
Fang Xingjian could freely control thunderbolts, move mountains, and control rivers.
Using them interchangeably would allow one to control fog, produce rain, create ice, as well as form great thunderstorms.
They could also be used to create mountains and rivers, control the powers of the earth, creating great disturbances to the ground, and form various shapes.
Rain and snow... Most of the world's natural occurrences could be created. Of course, the attacks could come in all forms, depending on how the user chose to utilize the technique.
Regardless of whether the clones were formed by vapor, earth, or steam which was heated up by thunderbolts, or maybe even clay, or other things, theoretically, it was impossible for Sword Saint Sasa to be unable to detect it.
Faced with Sword Saint Sasa's doubt, Fang Xingjian said calmly, "30 liters of water, 20 kilograms of carbon, 4 liters of ammonia, 1.5 kilograms of calcium oxide, 800 grams of phosphorous, 250 grams of salt..."
Seeing Sword Saint Sasa's confused gaze, Fang Xingjian said coldly, "These things are the components of a human adult body. It is also the reason why you weren't able to distinguish it when you first saw it.
"It's because the structure and composition of its body isn't that much different to mine."
Fang Xingjian looked at Sasa and said, "However, if you really take me seriously and focus more attention on me, with your ether synchronization rate, you should still be able to detect the differences."
Sasa let out a sigh and lowered his head. Although he had been attacking Fang Xingjian then, most of his focus had been placed on Governor Devitt and the other two people. He had only scanned Fang Xingjian with his Heaven's Perception slightly and had not actually paid him much heed.
If he could take it more seriously and divert more of his attention to analyze the results from his Heaven's Perception, with him being level 29 with an ether synchronization rate of 100%, he would even be able to analyze cells and bacteria. How could he possibly be tricked then?
However, it was now too late for him to say anything. While being suppressed by three Conferred Knights who were all stronger than him, Sasa threw Fang Xingjian a cold look and said, "Fang Xingjian, you're very lucky. But this won't be the end. One day, I'll get back the Heaven's Volition Sword Intent from you."
The gaze Sasa cast on Fang Xingjian was filled with greed. What kind of power was it that it could allow a level 22 Conferred Knight to take one hit from him within a second?
However, James quickly kicked Sasa to the ground and said coldly, "You can say that after you free yourself from our hands."
Looking at the crowd that was gathering around them, James and the others quickly brought Sasa back to the academy.
In an office at the Regional Academy, James nodded and sighed, "To think that Armstrong is also one of the First Prince's 36 clones?"
Governor Devitt shook his head as well. "This is really unexpected to think that Armstrong would choose this path." He then looked at Fang Xingjian with great interest and asked, "It was really thanks to the Guardian King's letter that you were able to push back Armstrong. Can the letter still be used now?"
"It can't." Fang Xingjian shook his head and said, "There's no more information left in it."
Hoppes, head of the sword arts team, coughed and asked, "How should we deal with Sasa?"
At this question, everyone fell silent. In the end, James was the one who spoke, "Put him under confinement. Although this guy bit the hand that fed him, he is still a Conferred Knight. It'll be very troublesome to kill him.
"Whereas, if we put him under confinement, we can just announce to public that he went to train in seclusion."
Suddenly, Fang Xingjian raised his hand and said, "I have a suggestion."
James laughed and turned to look at Fang Xingjian as if he was looking at a treasure.
Fang Xingjian was truly a treasure. For Fang Xingjian to be invited to participate in the Martial Techniques Grading Plan... In James' eyes, he was already considered the Regional Academy's star, an extremely precious treasure.
"Xingjian, go ahead. To be honest, the results achieved by the Rebirth Sword Technique have far surpassed that of our imaginations, and it's something which you achieved by yourself. With such results, we should give you the support that you need."
Fang Xingjian said, "There's a chance for me to spar with the Sword Saint. Of course, it won't be now, but when I've gotten a little stronger, I hope to use him to train my sword arts."
James nodded. "I've not shown any killing intent when I spar with you. It'll be different with Sasa. He hates you to the core. If you were to spar with him, it's true that you'll be able to improve your sword arts. However, it must be when I'm around."
With that, Fang Xingjian once again returned to the days where he would just cultivate his sword arts and temper his attributes. However, compared to the peace he was enjoying, the outside world was extremely noisy.
At the center of the Empire, there was an extensive and impressive palace. It was unknown what materials the massive palace was constructed with, but under the sunlight, it was as if it had been sprayed with a layer of golden paint.
Patrolling Imperial Guards wearing golden armor were guarding the palace. There were various pavilions, buildings, and carved railings all over. The palace was the epitome of luxury and enjoyment.
These buildings on the ground, however, were just the accommodations for the palace maids and soldiers.
In the air, there were over a hundred palaces floating in the clouds. They were all made from various precious metals, and the roofs were covered with precious stones which shone colorfully. The wealth here was immeasurable.
From afar, the scene looked as if one was seeing the heavenly world, the celestial realm.
These were infrastructure which even the modern Earth would not be able to create. It was because the powers of Divine level experts had been used to create such a miraculous architecture.
At the center of the palaces in the sky, there was one palace which was the most brilliant and majestic-looking, one that was extremely great in size. In the palace, the Second Prince was kneeling, saying, "... Your Majesty, this is what that had happened."
The Second Prince was elegant-looking while dressed in a golden robe. However, he was unable to hide the refreshing and outstanding aura he exuded.
Before him, there was a tall silhouette which was encompassed by layers of golden light, making it hard for others to see his appearance clearly.
The person did not reply to the Second Prince, and the latter did not dare to urge for an answer. He merely stayed in the kneeling position, waiting for the actions of the other party.
"The First Prince has arrived!"
Just then, many calls came from outside the palace. Then the First Prince was wearing a golden robe and armor, revealing extreme dignity and dominance... Before he had gotten close, his laughter had already arrived. "Second Brother, it's no wonder you hadn't taken any action despite there being such an upheaval in the Great Western Region. So, you've actually been complaining to our father about me."
The Second Prince threw the First Prince a cold glance and said, "Eldest Brother, the Rebirth Sword Technique shouldn't be forbidden."
"Shouldn't be forbidden? The Rebirth Sword Technique is the best Nurturing sword technique we currently know of and yet you wish to promote it. Could it be that you want everyone in the world, including those aristocratic vermins, to cultivate the same set of sword technique as us?
"Are you afraid that they won't be able to catch up to the royalty with their powers? And so, you want them to be of a threat to the royal family?
"Do you know that once this sword technique is disseminated out, how much ambition would be born from it? The world would henceforth become chaotic."
The Second Prince shook his head and said, "Everyone's abilities will be boosted, and the gap will still remain. Only when the people have become stronger and achieved higher standards of living will our country then gain greater prosperity, wealth, and power.
"We should increase the strength of every individual citizen and not treat them as we do to bandits and robbers. We shouldn't be be wary of them and suppress them."
