The hall of the first abode .
The preeminent man might only have Li Fuchen as his only personal disciple, but he had plenty of write-in disciples . Apart from those who were in seclusion, the rest of the write-in disciples were waiting in the hall of the abode . There were seven of them .
“In the future, he will be your Elder shixiong . ”
The preeminent man went right to the point as he pointed at Li Fuchen and spoke to the rest .
“Greetings Elder shixiong . ”
Under the attentive eyes of the preeminent man, no one dared to act imprudently . Even though their hearts didn’t feel this way .
Li Fuchen’s expression was as per normal, but he could see hostility and despise in a few of their eyes .
Indeed, the innate potential was a rather vague measure, while strength was an unchanged truth .
With a high innate potential, it would only cause jealousy and unacceptance .
But if your ability was formidable, others might be jealous, but they would fear you even more .
The Three King Stars were ranked at the top three on the Stars Ranking, but was everyone convinced?
Not necessarily .
Dear Readers . Scrapers have recently been devasting our views . At this rate, the site (creativenovels . com) might . . . let's just hope it doesn't come to that . If you are reading on a scraper site . Please don't .
It was reckoned that there were plenty of people who wanted to knock the Three King Stars off their horses .
Hence Li Fuchen’s heart was very bright and spacious, he understood clearly that innate potential represented the future, while one’s ability represented the present .
The future was unpredictable, but the present was the truth and nothing else .
If you wanted others to respect you, to be fearful of you, you needed to have a convincing ability .
If Li Fuchen assumed that after he passed the seventh mystic martial door and had the no . 1 innate potential in the Mystic Martial Hidden Domain; he should command everyone’s respect; it was an impossible matter .
‘I reckon after a period of time, people will take the opportunity to challenge me!’ Li Fuchen thought to himself .
“You are all dismissed!” The preeminent man waved his hand .
Towards these write-in disciples, he would only give them some pointers whenever he was in the mood . On usual days, they would all ‘emerge and perish on their own’ .
(TL note: It means to cultivate on their own)
After hearing the statement, apart from Li Fuchen, everyone else even the youth who was accepted as the new write-in disciple left .
“What is your name?” The preeminent man asked .
Li Fuchen replied, “Master, disciple’s name is Li Fuchen!”
“Li Fuchen, huh?” The preeminent man smiled, “A good name . ”
A person’s name was about a part of one’s destiny . Li Fuchen’s name was indeed a good name .
(TL note: Li Fuchen’s name is actually Floating Dust)
The preeminent man continued, “You are very fortunate . The sword dao is my main martial dao and in this area, I can offer you the best advice . ”
All the eight Mystic Martial Experts were specialized in a certain skill . The first and second Mystic Martial Experts specialized in the sword dao .
Of course, both were sword daos, but there were differences .
Some sword daos were exceedingly free and not restrained by anything .
Some sword daos were upright and orderly, had a vast spirit which existed forever .
Some sword daos were emotionless, heartless, and inhumane .
Some sword daos revered oneself with sole supremacy, which was the sword dao of a monarch .
Some sword daos were absolutely unbridled and irrespective of good and evil .
There were many different kinds of sword daos and it varies for each individual .
The preeminent man’s sword dao belonged to the first kind of sword dao… the Exceeding Sword Dao .
Li Fuchen nodded . He did sense an indistinct sword intent coming from the preeminent man .
The preeminent man asked, “Let me ask you, what is sword dao?”
Li Fuchen thought for a moment and replied, “Using the sword to kill, that is sword dao . ”
“Isn’t it too simple?” The preeminent man questioned .
Li Fuchen replied, “It is the most simple and the most truthful . If a sword can’t kill anyone, then it cannot be known as a sword dao . At least, it is an incomplete sword dao . ”
The preeminent man laughed, “Indeed . The sword is meant for killing . What if there is no sword?”
“Create a sword!”
Li Fuchen’s answer wasn’t an outcome of careful deliberations, but it was his personal understanding .
Right now, he wasn’t going for knowledge and he wasn’t required to be meticulous . He just had to follow his inner heart .
The preeminent man sized up Li Fuchen closely, “You are very suitable for my sword dao . The sword is meant for killing, but the sword also isn’t just merely a sword . It is all things that can possibly be a sword . The difference is the one who is wielding it . Take for example a tree branch . If it were in the hands of a swordsman, it is in fact a sword . Follow me . ”
The preeminent man waved his hand, while mysterious energy wrapped around the two of them . Once they reappeared, the two of them had arrived at an uninhabited mountain peak .
There wasn’t a lot of trees on the mountain peak and were severe gales .
Only allowed on Creativenovels . com
Once the two of them landed, their clothes instantly fluttered in the winds .
The preeminent man said, “The eight mystic martial doors might seem like they tested many inner qualities, but all those qualities can be embodied in sword moves . ”
“The first mystic martial door tested the ability to manipulate qi . ”
“The second mystic martial door tested one’s foundation strength and spirit will . ”
“The third mystic martial door tested burst strength and spirit will . ”
“The fourth mystic martial door tested reaction speed and awareness . ”
“The fifth mystic martial door tested one’s creativity . ”
“The sixth mystic martial door tested one’s primitive willpower . ”
“As for the seventh mystic martial door, only you would know . ”
The preeminent man picked up a dried up tree branch and said, “Look carefully . ”
As he spoke, a weak qi was circulating in his body . From the qi presence of it, it was probably only at the Origin Realm .
The preeminent man wielded the dried up tree branch and thrust forward .
Li Fuchen couldn’t even see the trajectory of the preeminent man’s hand movements . He could only see a huge tree on the mountain peak, it instantly penetrated and it wasn’t just a single time, it was countless times .
The huge tree collapsed and disintegrated .
“Such a terrifying sword move . ” Li Fuchen’s eyes shrunk .
From this single sword, Li Fuchen saw many things .
The qi realm was only at the Origin Realm, but it was utilized flawlessly without any trace of wastage .
The foundation strength didn’t have a trace of undulation from start to finish and was extremely consistent .
The burst strength was stacked layer upon layer, which got even more terrifying the further it went .
The reaction speed and awareness, there was nothing to say about it
In short, from just a single sword, Li Fuchen witnessed plenty of unfamiliar areas .
He was afraid that he might not have caught everything .
The preeminent man looked at Li Fuchen and said, “If you are able to achieve 10% control of this sword, you will be able to comprehend a mystic class high-tier sword intent . If you can control 20% of it, it will be sufficient for you to comprehend mystic class peak-tier sword intent . ”
“This is an earth class sword move?” Li Fuchen asked .
The stronger the sword move, the higher the requirements for the various qualities .
In terms of limitations for cultivation level and cultivation time, he had yet to comprehend the mystic class high-tier Blaze Devil Sword intent .
But if it was as the preeminent said, once he had control of 10% of this sword move, he would be able to comprehend a mystic class high-tier sword intent in advance .
The preeminent man explained, “This is just a casual sword move, but I have comprehended an earth class sword intent, hence this casual sword move can also be known as an earth class sword move . ”
“Earth class sword intent?”
Li Fuchen initially thought that these eight Mystic Martial Experts were just Reincarnation Realm martial artists, but he knew he was wrong now .
These eight Mystic Martial Experts should have surpassed the existence of a Reincarnation Realm martial artists .
But it was due to the restriction from the Mystic Martial Hidden Domain, hence they were unable to exhibit their true strength after they exited .
In addition to that, every time they went out of the hidden domain, they had to pay a huge price .
If not, just this earth class sword move alone was sufficient to instant kill any experts on the East Unicorn Continent .
If the Star Road Hidden Domain was helpful to one’s cultivation, then the Mystic Martial Hidden Domain was helpful to one’s martial arts .
Two different factors, one for the interior and the other for the exterior . None of them were dispensable .
“It is impossible for you to comprehend a mystic class high-tier sword intent within a short period of time . My first objective for you is to create a sufficiently formidable mystic class mid-tier kill move . ” The preeminent man knew that it was too difficult for Li Fuchen to immediately comprehend the mystic class high-tier sword intent .
Mystic class high-tier sword intents was something only Heaven Realm martial artists could get involved in . There were times if one’s cultivation wasn’t sufficient, all the energy that had to be spent would be tenfold that of the requirement .
