Chapter 263 Suppress
Just as Fang Xingjian was using his Heaven’s Perception to get a deeper understanding of the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor, a large amount of information gushed into his brain from the armor:
Domirov practicing martial arts when he was young;
The local customs and practices of the Sand Country;
Battles of various scales;
Domirov standing out from many warriors and becoming the national hero;
Then improving his martial arts ceaselessly and gaining more power…
Domirov’s life flashed passed very quickly before Fang Xingjian.
As a top level 29 warrior, a large amount of his information had been left behind in his bone remains, forming his martial will.
Then when Fang Xingjian’s consciousness came into contact with these pieces of information, the latter were like cats who had smelled blood, gushing frantically toward the point of contact.
After all, for these memory shards, the brain and the human consciousness were their favorite places. As the information gushed in furiously, Fang Xingjian grabbed his head, feeling like it was about to explode.
A large amount of memory shards continued to take over the outer layer of his memory, like they were going to take over his brain. It was as though Domirov was going to be reborn in his body.
“I!” Fang Xingjian opened his mouth, and what came out was an unfamiliar voice in a language—the Sand Country’s language. “Domirov!” At the same time, a scorching, boundless, and arid aura continued to surge out from his body, as if Domirov himself had come back to life.
However, in the next moment, the Universal Sword Dominance Lunisolar mental cultivation method started to circulate at full power in Fang Xingjian’s mind. His consciousness was like a wave of streaming sword Qis, slashing ceaselessly at the attacking information waves and eliminating them one by one.
This required Fang Xingjian to fight the will with his will. Once he was no longer able to stand Domirov’s surge of information, the information would take over the surface of Fang Xingjian’s consciousness, and it would be as though Fang Xingjian was hypnotized. Fang Xingjian’s brain would think that he was Domirov, or perhaps, multiple personalities might be created.
From a certain viewpoint, it was like Domirov had come back to life. However, to Fang Xingjian, this was a disaster. The people in Miracle World referred to this as entering a state of chaos.
Therefore, when the Superintendent saw this aura soar up, worry and fear immediately flashed in his eyes, and he slowly headed for the door.
He knew that it would be useless for him to say anything to Fang Xingjian. If the pieces of information were gushing into his brain was at a speed of 100 m/s, then the speed at which information was transferred through speech was at most 3 bytes/s.
It was like the difference between a huge river and a small water pipe; there was no room for comparison. How would the Superintendent be able to persuade Fang Xingjian to stop with just words alone? The only thing he could think of now was to leave the place quickly in order to save himself. He had seen Fang Xingjian’s performance in the selection and knew it was impossible for him to be a match for Fang Xingjian.
The Superintendent had to leave and look for other Conferred Knights to restrain him.
Fang Xingjian, however, did not care what the Superintendent thought. His entire consciousness was already focused on going against Domirov’s martial will.
It was as though he was standing on reefs, receiving continuous waves of attacks from the information currents. Simultaneously, he was slashing out with his sword time and time again in order to turn the information currents into ash.
Relying on his willpower and brain power, which were both at a level that not many in the world had, Fang Xingjian forcefully withstood against the impact from Domirov’s will. His disposition and aura also gradually went back to what it had been originally.
In the next moment, the skin all over his body went through tremors and transformations, dressing him in a set of black armor. The armor then went through a whole series of transformations, turning from the inconspicuous black armor to a faint gold-colored armor which reflected a metallic glow.
The surface of the armor, which had been joined together initially, had now become many scales joined together. It was as if he was wearing a layer of dragon scales.
The surface of the armor seemed as though it had turned into a crystalized mirror surface. The glow it reflected was like a blaze of flames jumping about on the armor itself.
However, Fang Xingjian felt as though countless concealed spaces had opened up throughout his body. Various energies in the world, including radiation, magnetism, solar and lunar energies, as well as various physical heat energies… all of them were drawn out violently from void spaces and channeled into his body.
The vital energy and blood throughout his body were like boiling water, making him let out a loud shout unbearably. The scale armor all over his body stood up, trembling the air, followed by a series of loud cries.
Countless energies soared out from his body incessantly. Fang Xingjian felt that his attributes seemed to be growing at a crazy rate.
Concurrently, streams of a faint white glow appeared from Fang Xingjian’s limbs and various parts of his body, forming a geometrical figure.
They were various force fields which allowed one to speed up, experience an increase in strength, adjust one’s accuracy, or experience automated calibration. These force fields once again increased Fang Xingjian’s damage prowess.
Sensing the upheaving transformations within his body, Fang Xingjian subconsciously wanted to try out the powers of this armor. So, he casually threw out a punch toward the front.
His strength had already been very strong to begin with. However, now, with his sword bones, the power from each of his punches was sufficient to create a stream of sword Qi and split open a gap in an ordinary wall.
However, after activating his Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor, his strength continued to soar. His punch was launched out through space, and the violent strength turned into sword force, tearing the air apart. It then transformed into a stream of sword Qi, which was three meters wide and a hundred meters long, and soared toward the horizon. The sword Qi slashed the roof of the office apart, revealing a large stretch of the sky.
Was this the power of a level 29 top notch Conferred Knight?
That each punch and kick would have such prowess…?
However, Fang Xingjian quickly realized that his consciousness was swaying and yet Domirov’s martial will continued to attack him endlessly, as if wanting to kick him out from this body.
Then Fang Xingjian released a long breath suddenly, breaking off the connection between his will and Domirov’s martial will. In the next moment, the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor continued to change, degenerate, then it turned into a layer of skin once again.
Fang Xingjian could also sense that his body was weak, as if it was deflated.
In actuality, he had not become weaker than before. It was just that after having escaped from the overwhelming state of the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor in activation, comparing the state before and after, he felt that his body was very weak. This weakness was just a delusion.
As he released a breath, Fang Xingjian once again looked at his body and then thought to himself, ‘Compared to a true expert, my body is still too weak.
‘Moreover, the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor only has a maximum of 50% of the Conferred Knight’s powers.’
He clenched his fists together tightly, and his inner craving to gain more power increased.
‘However, before I reach level 29, this Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor is truly a powerful defensive tool. It is a pity that it requires one to withstand the impact from Domirov’s martial will. With my current martial will, I can only hang on for over ten seconds. If I continue for any longer, there’ll be a danger of me being taken down.
‘Ordinary Conferred Knights may not be able to withstand the impact from his martial will at all.’
Fang Xingjian decided in his heart that he would strengthen his sword arts and mental cultivation method ceaselessly. With a greater mastery of his skills, he would gain more confidence and the development of his brain would be stronger as well, allowing him to be capable of going against the impact from the martial will.
When the time came that he would be able to fully suppress Domirov’s martial will, he would be able to use this Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor freely. It would be unlike how he was currently, needing to stop after using it for over ten seconds and then continuing after resting for a couple of hours.
Just as Fang Xingjian was contemplating this, a voice rang out in the office, “Xingjian? Are you alright?”
