857 Reforging

 With a single thought from Fang Xingjian, four streams of sword light dashed out from his body.

They were the four Divine Swords he had been using to perform the Celestial Eradication Sword Formation.

The first one was the Thunder Calamity, which had been forged to contain the All-Conquering sword intent.

The second one was the Abyss, which had been forged to be channeled with the Infiltrating Void sword intent.

The third one was Panwei, which had been forged using the Panwu Heavenly Raiment as the material and channeled with the Light Pursuit sword intent.

The fourth one was a White Bone Sword, which had been forged from a chunk of his spinal bone and channeled with the Instant sword intent.

The Heaven-Connecting Upper Extremity Sword Physique, which Fang Xingjian had created, used nuclear forces to reforge his conjured physique. Simultaneously, he was also planning to refine the four Divine Swords all over again, solidifying the Celestial Eradication Sword Formation into his own body.

The Celestial Eradication Sword Formation had been his strongest technique, but his takeaways from the wordless monument allowed him to take one step further into the microscopic realm. Right now, with his martial will at over 5,200 points, his physical strength had surpassed the powers he could obtain from the engulfment and releases of the Celestial Eradication Sword Formation within a range of 100,000 meters.

This was something which Fang Xingjian would never have been able to imagine in the past. Even when the Black Mage King had swallowed all the Divine level experts in the Imperial Capital, his martial will had only been raised to about 3,500 points.

With each increment to the martial will, the difference would be increasingly bigger. However, the difficulty in achieving the increment would also be very high. In the past, Fang Xingjian could only obtain a qualitative increment through leveling up and undergoing a job transition.

When Fang Xingjian's martial will was at 2,000 points, he had to cultivate for almost a month to receive a few points' worth of increment.

However, after obtaining the legacy form the wordless monument, he had continued adding in hints of heavenly thunders and terrestrial magnetism forces through the Thunder-Inducing Technique. Due to that, his martial will had become a lot more powerful at a rapid rate that was much faster than in the past.

This made the Celestial Eradication Sword Formation seem weaker by itself. Therefore, Fang Xingjian decided to reforge all of the four Divine Swords in the process of reforging his conjured physique. He was planning to melt them together with the Heaven-Connecting Upper Extremity Sword Physique, solidifying the Celestial Eradication Sword Formation into his body.

Out of the four Divine Swords, the White Bone Sword's material was the weakest. It was a chunk of Fang Xingjian's spinal bone from when he attained the Divine level. Once exposed to the Sun's environment, it melted and vaporized almost instantly, turning into a stretch of plasma flames.

Following that, the Thunder Calamity and Abyss also did not hold on for long before they were vaporized into plasma a few minutes later.

The Panwei Sword was the only one which did not go through any changes, seemingly totally unaffected by the high temperature and high pressure. It merely floated before Fang Xingjian, appearing completely fine.

Yet as Fang Xingjian's gaze narrowed, a surging martial will turned into light that had a chaotic array of colors, knocking into the Panwei Sword. It was as if a myriad of thunderbolts had exploded, or that the Asia and America continents had collided into each other.

In almost 0.001 seconds, the Panwei Sword let out a cry and turned into dust. Then it was vaporized into countless particles under the high temperature and pressure.

'Alright, now's the time!'

Fang Xingjian's brows twitched, and the four sword intents contained within the four Divine Swords scattered out, hovering before Fang Xingjian. Then Fang Xingjian's martial will flashed past, turning into four longswords of varying shapes. Simultaneously, their original material, which had been heated up into plasma state, was also already merged into the swords.

As Fang Xingjian's martial will went deeper into the microscopic world, they kept turning into hints of nuclear forces. The atomic nuclei, atoms, and particle structures of the four swords' materials started to undergo a change, turning into an artificial material that was impossible to exist in the natural world.

Fang Xingjian first wanted to refine all four longswords to become like the Impasse Armor, formed from purely atomic nuclei. They would be absolutely smooth and reflect all electromagnetic waves. It was an almost indestructible material.

As Fang Xingjian started to reforge his conjured physique and sword formation, the almost endless supply of energy from the Sun gushed out toward his body and the four longswords in front of him.

Time passed by rapidly, and in the blink of an eye, another month passed by.

During the period of time Fang Xingjian was cultivating in seclusion, a huge change occurred in Miracle World.

The Steel Lion Kingdom formed an alliance with the Sand Country. Each side sent out several Divine level experts and attacked the Empire from the north and the east respectively.

The Steel Lion Kingdom sent out six out of the 11 Sacred Generals, and the one who led the team was the strongest out of the 11 Sacred General-the Goshawk Tribe's Prince Zuoxian, who was the strongest in the Steel Lion Kingdom after the Heavenly Lion King.

The Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch himself led the team from the Sand Country, bringing along the Sacred Fire Order's female Saint and two other Divine level experts.

All of a sudden, the Empire was being concurrently attacked by a total of ten Divine level experts from the north and the east.

The ten Divine level experts attacked jointly. In this mission, both Prince Zuoxian and the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch from the Sand Country were both tier five Divine level experts.

Devastating attacks came down on the Empire, sending the Empire into a state of turmoil.

Countless people were on tenterhooks, and many aristocrats and wealthy clans in the north even escaped toward the south. There were even cases of these people trying to flee out of the country.

After all, on Fang Xingjian's side, there were only a total of seven Divine level experts-the Fourth Prince, Prince Philip, Tyrant, Lan Yue, Blue Sacred Moonlight, and the Astral Ancestor-with Fang Xingjian included.

In countless people's opinion, it was impossible for the Empire to be able to hold up against the joint attacks of two other countries.

"B*stard." The Fourth Prince slammed his palm onto the desk, and killing intent surged out from his eyes. "The Steel Lion Kingdom is clearly trying to take advantage while we're having difficulties. To think that they actually chose this time to attack us..."

The Knight Association's Chief said worriedly, "The Steel Lion Kingdom is very powerful. We'll need to contact the Imperial Preceptor as soon as possible."

"That's right," another subject said. "As long as the Imperial Preceptor makes a move, those bandits from the plains will be easy to deal with."

The two of them had witnessed Fang Xingjian's display of his battle prowess during the evil god ritual and held a strong belief toward Fang Xingjian's strength. Therefore, when they found out that two countries had joined forces to attack them, the first thing that came to their minds was to get Fang Xingjian's assistance.

However, the other newly appointed subjects did not think the same.

An old man said, "Your Highness, the Steel Lion Kingdom has joined forces with the Sand Country. They've already sent out over ten Divine level experts just in their first wave of attacks. This is aside from the fact that there are still numerous Divine level experts in the two countries who have yet to make their moves. Once all of them attack, there'll probably be 15 or more Divine level experts.

"They are coming down on us with great might, and we mustn't take them on head-on."

"That's right, that's right. Your Highness, in a chaotic battle with over ten Divine level experts, the Empire's foundation will probably all be destroyed even if we manage to push them back."

"The Sand Country and the Steel Lion Kingdom are merely requesting for money and land from this battle. Why don't we contact the Heavenly Lion King and request to make peace?"

Many Conferred Knights felt lost and were in a state of panic. With there being ten Divine level experts attacking and over five Divine level experts who had yet to engage in battle... Such a might was comparable to that of a great tsunami. It made them feel extremely weak and helpless.

Just the thought of over ten Divine level experts engaged in a fight within the Empire's borders already made them feel surprised and terrified.

With the Divine level experts' battle prowess that could destroy mountains and sink land, and their actions which could wreck a range of over several tens or hundreds li... It was really as if natural disasters had occurred.

Just then, a guard came in anxiously and shouted, "Emergency military report!

"Prince Zuoxian led five Sacred Generals southward to attack us. They've conquered 15 cities consecutively and have arrived at Buluo City of the Beize Region."
