“It is a pity that you cannot even withstand a single move . ”
Bai Qiuming shook his head and turned around before there was a flash and he vanished without a trace .
Yuan Long sat up and immediately vomited a mouthful of fresh blood while having a miserably pale complexion .
Nearly all of his ribs at the pit of the stomach had been broken, or should it be that he broke them himself .
“Am I still not good enough?” Yuan Long muttered .
He knew how horrific Bai Qiuming was and this time, he believed he would be able to resist Bai Qiuming’s illusion art . He didn’t expect to lose in such an utterly clear-cut manner .
“Spiritual awareness attacks and illusion art attacks are able to cause a disruption in the balance of combat strength . ” Li Fuchen lamented .
To be honest, if Bai Qiuming didn’t execute any illusion arts, it was questionable if his overall strength would reach the great master level . But once he utilized illusion arts, he would probably reach the monarch-class master level .
It was the same for Li Fuchen . If he didn’t execute any spiritual awareness attack, he would only be at the pinnacle master level . But once he utilized spiritual awareness attacks, his strength would reach the great master level .
It had the same principle .
“If Senior Bai Qiuming is already so powerful, I wonder how much more formidable would the 2-star generals and 3-star generals of the Red Moon Empire be?”
Bai Qiuming might be formidable, but he was only a 1-star general . In the future, he might become a 2-star general but that was in the future .
The Red Rainbow Sect had two generals now . Bai Qiuming was a 1-star general and was at the 7th level of Battle Spirit Realm . The other was the emperor-class disciple, Chu Wu, who was a 2-star general at the 9th level of Battle Spirit Realm .
In fact, all emperor-class disciples from monarch-class factions were able to become generals . After all, emperor-class disciples had 8-star bone frames and the 8-star bone frames were also the highest grade of bone frame on the Emperor Sky Continent .
As for 9-star bone frames, not many of the emperor-class factions had such talents .
Emperor-class factions merely had more 8-star bone frames .
Of course, not every monarch-class faction had 8-star bone frames too . In fact, most of the monarch-class factions didn’t have any 8-star bone frame disciples .
It was up to a faction’s luck if they could recruit any 8-star bone frame disciples .
Throughout the countless years of Red Rainbow Sect’s history, there were less than five 8-star bone frame disciples . During the past few centuries, there were only two and they were Chu Wu and Bai Qiuming .
Half a month later, Li Fuchen’s blazing flame bone frame pattern was finally at the sixth segment .
For now on, there were no more blazing flame bone frame patterns for him to comprehend .
Unless Li Fuchen’s blazing flame bone frame was upgraded to the 7-star grade .
However, herbs that could upgrade a 6-star bone frame into a 7-star bone frame would need to be at least heaven class mid-tier .
Heaven class mid-tier herbs were already very rare, heaven class mid-tier bone frame herbs were probably ten times or dozens of times rarer .
Without any great fated opportunities or great qi luck, it was impossible to find them .
At least not in the Battle Spirit Realm .
Now that the blazing flame bone frame pattern was comprehended to the sixth segment, Li Fuchen’s Heart of Blazing Flame had a great increase in power . Once he burst out with his divine ability, his chest would have a dense blazing flame pattern that was just like a blazing flame tattoo . Li Fuchen reckoned that the completed Heart of Blazing Flame would probably cover the entire body with blazing flame patterns .
For the Heart of Blazing Flame to reach that state, Li Fuchen would probably need the 9-star bone frame .
“Now that my blazing flame divine ability has reached its limit, I can put my efforts into the sword dao now . ”
There was a huge difference when multitasking and when fully concentrated .
No matter how exceptional the perception was, it wasn’t that easy to reach the extremity by multitasking as compared to full concentration .
Li Fuchen planned to choose one of the earth class peak-tier sword arts and upgrade the sword intent to the heaven class low-tier .
Li Fuchen had a total of six earth class peak-tier sword arts . They were the Cloud Flame Thousand Incineration, Flowing Flame Sword Art, Sky Ring Sword Art, Impermanence Sword Art, Grand Wind Sword Art, and Meteor Sword Art .
Among them, the Cloud Flame Thousand Incineration, Flowing Flame Sword Art, and Meteor Sword Art were fire dao sword art .
The Sky Ring Sword Art and the Impermanence Sword Art were neutral dao sword arts .
The Grand Wind Sword Art was a wind dao sword art .
There wasn’t a need to consider the neutral dao and wind dao sword arts . Li Fuchen was focusing on the three fire dao sword arts .
After all, he had already comprehended the blazing flame bone frame pattern to the sixth segment and he was rather proficient in the fire dao laws . It would make it much easier for him to upgrade a fire dao sword art .
After consideration, Li Fuchen chose the Flowing Flame Sword Art .
The Cloud Flame Thousand Incineration was too extreme and it was too difficult to upgrade the sword intent .
The Meteor Sword Art was even more extreme than the Cloud Flame Thousand Incineration, making it even harder to upgrade .
Only the Flowing Flame Sword Art was a little more balanced .
However, before trying to upgrade the Flowing Flame Sword Art, Li Fuchen had to comprehend the Joint-Heaven Sword patterns .
Li Fuchen had already fully comprehended the Joint-Heaven Sword’s first layer of sword patterns .
For the second layer of sword patterns, Li Fuchen had already comprehended it above the 90% mark and was roughly at the 93% mark .
It was similar to the sword patterns on the first layer of seal . At the later stages, the difficulty of the sword pattern comprehension would have a drastic increase . The difficulty was several times more difficult than the bone frame patterns .
Of course, once Li Fuchen comprehended all the sword patterns on the second layer of seal, he would be able to unlock the Joint-Heaven Sword’s second layer of seal and might obtain a heaven class low-tier sword art .
However, that was still rather far away .
Without another two or three years, Li Fuchen didn’t believe he would be able to unlock the second layer of seal on the Joint-Heaven Sword . Once he was able to unlock the second layer of seal, he would actually become a heaven class low-tier Sword Pattern Master and would be able to brand heaven class low-tier sword patterns on swords .
Li Fuchen had two points of consideration for wanting to comprehend the Joint-Heaven Sword patterns .
Firstly, he wanted to unlock the Joint-Heaven Sword’s second layer of seal as quickly as possible .
Secondly, it was to upgrade the Flowing Flame Sword Intent .
The Flowing Flame Sword Art was a fire dao sword art, it contained the fire dao laws and also the sword dao laws . He was already rather proficient in fire dao laws, but he definitely had to improve his sword dao laws . The Joint-Heaven Sword patterns contained extreme sword dao laws and after being proficient in the two laws of dao, there was a high chance of success for him to upgrade the sword intent .
After putting his full concentration on the Joint-Heaven Sword patterns, Li Fuchen realized that he had neglected the Joint-Heaven Sword patterns for the past months . If he had devoted his time to comprehending the sword patterns, he might have already unlocked the second layer of seal on the Joint-Heaven Sword .
However, it was hard to achieve success in everything . If he was fully devoted in the comprehension of sword patterns, then he wouldn’t have broken through to the Battle Spirit Realm now . Therefore, there was nothing to regret .
The Joint-Heaven Sword patterns was awe-inspiring like the heaven dao . Each time he was comprehending the Joint Heaven Sword patterns, Li Fuchen would sigh at how tiny he was .
The sword patterns in his eyes were like the heaven dao’s meridians . He might know the origin of the sword dao but he didn’t understand how it originated .
“The sword patterns are now 95% comprehended . ”
Two months later…
Li Fuchen was now at the Purple Mist Mountain for half a year .
On this day, Li Fuchen’s body emitted an overwhelming sword dao presence .
After comprehending the Joint Heaven Sword patterns to 95%, Li Fuchen felt that the heaven and earth had changed in his eyes .
Everything was about the meridians .
These meridians were like the trajectory of the sword arts and if he slashed along with these meridians, he would be able to exhibit terrifying power .
It was the same as branding sword patterns on the swords to increase the power of the swords .
“Sword Pattern Masters aren’t as simple as I imagined!”
In the past, Li Fuchen always assumed that Sword Pattern Masters were only meant for supporting . Now, he no longer felt the same . ”
Once the sword pattern proficiency reached a certain level, it was obviously able to increase a swordsman’s strength .
Li Fuchen picked up a withered branch on the ground . A winding sword pattern extended onto the withered branch . In the blink of the eye, the withered tree branch was emitting an extremely horrific sword dao presence . A seemingly simple thrust had also thrust through the void .
‘It is about time for me to upgrade the Flowing Flame Sword Intent . ’ When the withered tree branch crumbled, Li Fuchen thought in his heart .
