Chapter 262 Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor
The Superintendent’s pressure was very great, but Fang Xingjian was finally here, so he no longer had to be held responsible. While walking with great zeal, the Superintendent looked at Fang Xingjian and said, “Xingjian, you’re finally here. Come, come, come. Try the armor on. Let me have a look at how it actually looks like. It’s also my first time seeing a level 29 armor.”
Fang Xingjian walked up to the metal box, and under the Superintendent’s instructions, inserted his Knight medallion, which was hanging from his neck, into a hole of the metal box.
The entire metal box seemed to tremble slightly. Then at the next moment, as white smoke gushed out, the box was like a blooming flower. It opened up in all directions and revealed the set of armor inside.
The armor was a dark black color and included guards for his hands, arms, waist, upper thighs, knees, lower thighs, as well as other parts of the body. If one were to put it on completely, it would be a black armor which covered up the entire body.
It stood upright in the metal box, as if it were a living Knight. Although it did not seem to be anything special, it had a unique aura to it.
Therefore, under the Superintendent’s envious gaze, Fang Xingjian put on the pieces of the armor one by one.
At the start, Fang Xingjian had still been worried that the armor would be very heavy and thus make it impossible for him to use his specialty, the Single Sword World Subjugation. This specialty forbade him to be equipped with any armor over ten kilograms. Otherwise, Fang Xingjian would not be able to enjoy the speed increment from this specialty.
However, when he put it on, he realized that this level 29 Superior Divine Armor was light as a feather, and when he held it in his hand, it was like paper.
However, its sturdiness was not something to be undermined. Now that Fang Xingjian had completed the job transition to the Heavenly Sword Sovereign, the bones all over his body had been turned into sword bones. Each of his punches and kicks were like the slashing or piercing of a longsword. With just a casual but strong tap, he would be able to slash through steel and penetrate steel armors.
However, when he tried applying strength to stroke across the surface of this armor, there was a strong metallic scratching sound, but no marks were left behind.
The Superintendent said enviously, “This armor is known as the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor and was made from the skeletal remains of Sand Country’s national hero, Domirov. It took ten years to forge and is a true treasure that doesn’t come by easily.
“It’s material is light as a feather, yet firm as a rock. Even a level 29 Divine Weapon would not be able to break it easily.”
In the blink of an eye, Fang Xingjian had put on the complete set of black Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor. Then at the next moment, the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor let out a slight tremor and turned into a layer of black liquid on Fang Xingjian’s body. It stuck onto the surface of his skin as though it was a layer of skin. Following this, the armor’s color continued to change, seeming to get gradually accustomed to Fang Xingjian’s body. In just a short moment, it changed into over ten different colors and eventually got closer and closer to the color of Fang Xingjian’s skin.
In the end, no traces of the armor could be seen at all.
Fang Xingjian moved his arms and legs, and could not feel that he was wearing an armor. This Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor was truly amazing.
The Superintendent said enviously, “It’s said that after the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor is put on, it’ll be like putting on a layer of skin, and usually, one won’t be able to sense its existence. It will absorb sunlight, moonlight, magnetic forces, as well as heat. It’ll continue going through its metabolism process on the surface of the wearer’s body and help to nurse it. The armor will even gradually increase the physical constitution of the wearer.
“In the future, the wearer will never sweat. They will feel warm in winter and cool in summer, and there will not even be a trace of dust on the their body.
“Although I heard of this a long time ago, I thought that these were merely exaggerations. To think that they were actually true…”
The Superintendent stared at Fang Xingjian’s skin and mumbled, “It has already merged onto you skin. Now, the surface of your skin already has the defensive powers of a level 29 Divine Weapon.
“And if you were to keep on wearing this in the long term… With the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor nursing your body and increasing your body’s physical qualities, you’ll still grow increasingly strong and get closer to having the qualities of a level 29 Conferred Knight even if you don’t train your body.”
Fang Xingjian tried to clench his fist and felt that this layer of skin was like a living thing. Its connection with his body was growing increasingly stronger; it was supporting his body’s metabolism, transmitting of nutrients, and strengthening his physical qualities.
The old man said, “It can even store energy from excessive food intake and use it to strengthen your body. Hehe… In the future, no matter how much you eat, you won’t need to fear that you’ll not be able to digest it.”
Fang Xingjian nodded and asked, “Does it have any other functions? Other than the defensive powers of the material itself and its ability to bind to the user, what other functions does it have?”
“Right now, the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor is still sleeping.” The Superintendent grinned and said, “This was forged from the bone remains of Sand Country’s national hero. It also contains the martial will he had accumulated over the many years.”
“Currently, it’s like the armor is in a sleeping state and thus only has the defensive powers, as well as the basic body nurturing abilities, from the material it was made from.
“It will absorb and release powers from ether particles only when it has truly awakened, unleashing the true prowess of a level 29 Divine Weapon.”
Martial will referred to the information left behind by powerful experts in ether particles. Just like the information Divine-level experts like the Melancholic Monarch had left behind in the Pantheon Monument, the martial will would not dissipate even after two hundred years had passed by.
This set of Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor had been forged from the bone remains of a level 29 expert. Naturally, the ether particles would retain a large amount of martial will, the person’s will, and memories he had before he died.
The Superintendent continued, “In order to stimulate the powers of the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor, you’ll need to be able to get the martial will, the will of Sand Country’s national hero, Domirov, to yield to you.”
Fang Xingjian knew that winning over the martial will was to be able to accept the rush of information from it and, in turn, receive the information which had been left behind in the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor.
Those were all personal information belonging to Domirov. They were gathered in the armor, and like a soul remnant, they would ceaselessly attack the people who disturbed them.
Fang Xingjian touched his skin and said, “Watch out. I’m going to try out the powers of this old ghost.”
“What? You’re going to challenge the martial will in the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor now?”
What joke was he trying to make? How long had it been since Fang Xingjian had entered the Regional Academy? The Superintendent thought that Fang Xingjian had yet to complete the job transition and was still a level 19 Knight. To be challenging the martial will of a level 29 expert under such circumstances, would it not be courting death?
Moreover, the Superintendent was still next to Fang Xingjian. If Fang Xingjian could not accept the impact of Domirov’s martial will and ended up going crazy, would he not have to suffer from the consequences too?
However, he was not aware that Fang Xingjian had the world’s best sword talent, while Fang Xingjian was very clear about this. His strong will and his brain’s ability to accept and process abilities far surpassed that of ordinary people. Otherwise, it would have been impossible for him to adapt to the high density of ether particles so quickly.
Therefore, before the Superintendent had a chance to persuade Fang Xingjian against it, Fang Xingjian trembled slightly and sent his Heaven’s Perception toward the armor.
In the next moment, a tremendous aura soared upward, and the temperature in the entire office started to rise. It was like suddenly being moved from a place with good weather to a scorching desert. The Superintendent even had the illusion that the sun was piercingly hot as it burned his skin, and there was also wind and sand brushing against his face.
At the same time, an extremely deep and strong voice emerged from Fang Xingjian’s body. It was the sound the armor had created when it caused tremors in the air.
“Who has entered my mind?!
“Who has entered Domirov’s mind?!”
The Superintendent’s eyes were wide open and only reacted at the next moment. “This is the martial will’s reaction? A tremendous amount of personal information gathered together to form a false persona? So, he thinks he’s still alive?”
