Chapter 264 Effects
The Superintendent looked at Fang Xingjian, feeling both worried and terrified.
If it was not because Fang Xingjian had become this year’s Regional Champion and his performance had far surpassed that of the Regional Champions from previous years…
Or because Fang Xingjian had stopped the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor he was wearing…
The Superintendent would definitely not take the initiative to stay behind and ask this question.
Hearing the Superintendent’s question, Fang Xingjian finally lifted his head, showing an apologetic expression as he said, “I’m sorry, I’ve destroyed your office.”
“It’s fine, it’s fine.” With that, the Superintendent heaved a sigh of relief, grateful there were no major issues. However, he then immediately looked at Fang Xingjian with a curious and envious gaze and asked, “You subdued the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor?”
“Subdued? How could it be so easy? It contains the powerful will of the level 29 top notch expert, Domirov. This is not something that I can subdue and suppress at the moment. The most I can do now is to withstand the impact from his will and use it for just a short moment.”
Fang Xingjian thought to himself, ‘A level 29 armor is already so powerful. Then if it was a level 30 Divine Armor, the ultimate equipment which is said to have 30% of the powers of a Divine level expert… how powerful would it be?’
For some reason, when the Superintendent heard Fang Xingjian’s words, he seemed to heave another sigh of relief inwardly. However, his gaze was still filled with envy. “That’s already very remarkable. To be able to use a level 29 armor for a short while… You should be able to utilize half the powers of a level 29 expert?”
“It’s not that easy.” Fang Xingjian smiled and said, “Level 29 experts are strong in various aspects. Killing techniques, specialties, attributes, Waves, and mental cultivation methods… not one of them can be excluded.
“The Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor only strengthens my five attributes. As for the other abilities, I’ll still need to think about them and continue to keep fighting against Domirov’s martial will in order to be capable of truly bringing out the best in them.”
Naturally, the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor naturally did not just strengthen one’s physical capability and strength. However, many of its abilities were not things Fang Xingjian could grasp fully at the moment.
Despite this, his performance was already very commendable. At least, during the ten over seconds he had been using the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor, there would probably be no Conferred Knight of level 25 or below who would be a match for him.
Fang Xingjian said apologetically, “The issue with the ceiling is my fault. I’ll get someone to send over money for compensation.”
Fang Xingjian was not only the Regional Champion but also a favorite with Governor Devitt. Even if the First Prince did not take any action against him, Fang Xingjian was still not someone who he, a mere level 19 Knight, would be able to go against.
Although he knew that Fang Xingjian was just trying to be polite, Fang Xingjian’s words gave him a really good feeling anyway. “No need, no need. It’s nothing much. There’s no need to think too much about it.”
“It’s something that must be done. But I still have something to attend to today and will need to take my leave.”
Although the Superintendent had appeared very submissive, Fang Xingjian still kept up the basic courtesy he should be showing. He knew that although someone like the Superintendent, who managed the logistical work in the entire Regional Academy, might not be able to offer him great help, he would be able to create trouble for him easily.
If a few polite words could be exchanged for the goodwill of others, then there was nothing which could be more worth it.
After bidding the smiling Superintendent goodbye, Fang Xingjian headed out of the academy. He was going to look for Ferdinand and discuss about how to make money. After all, he was now the Regional Champion and also the person who had defeated Hoult, who was under the wings of a Divine level expert.
Going by the theories from Earth, Fang Xingjian’s name was considered quite a marketable product in Great Western Region. If they were to work on this, it would be quite easy to earn money even if he were to just set up a martial arts class.
However, he needed to spend long hours in the Sacred Land for his cultivation. Therefore, he could only use his name and not actually spend too much time on the money-earning activities. This was something he needed to discuss with Ferdinand.
Fang Xingjian arrived at the inn where he had agreed to meet Ferdinand and knocked on the door. When Ferdinand came out and saw that it was Fang Xingjian, he broke into an excited smile.
Then he shouted to Anthony and Robert who were behind the door, “Why aren’t you guys coming out? The person you have been yearning day and night to meet has finally arrived.”
Although Ferdinand had been able to remain calm while Fang Xingjian had been gone for over ten days… to Anthony and Robert, this had been torture.
After all, they had made up their minds to drop out from the Prefectural Academy in order to follow Fang Xingjian to the Great Western City.
If Fang Xingjian were to forget about them… Considering their inability to return to the Prefectural Academy and thus having no official cultivation resources provided to them, they would only be able to seek out a government sector or join some factions. If things were to come down to that, their future would become ambiguous.
Therefore, when they saw Fang Xingjian at this moment, their gazes were filled with both unease and excitement.
They felt uneasy as they did not know what Fang Xingjian would be doing from now on and what the future would be like. Despite this, they felt excited because with Fang Xingjian’s performance and talent, he should be able to make his own path in this world.
However, Fang Xingjian did not care about their emotions and just went straight to the point, “I want to earn money. Ferdinand, what are your thoughts on this?”
“Of course, I’ll agree to it 100%.” He took out a stack of documents from his room and tossed them to Fang Xingjian while saying, “I’ve done the research. There are already over five thousand aristocrats in the entire Great Western City, with about eight hundred of them ranging from eight to fifteen years old. How big is this target group? If we were to set up a class, we would be able to bring in four thousand gold every month even if we were to charge each person five gold a month.
“Moreover, Xingjian, with your value, there’s no way that we can charge them so cheaply at only five gold.”
“Five gold is considered cheap?” Anthony retorted. Before he became a Knight, five gold had been sufficient as his living expenses for an entire year, even if he were to have spent his days enjoying life in great indulgence.
However, Ferdinand smiled with contempt, “These are all aristocrats, so they aren’t short of such a small sum of money. Moreover, what kind of status does Xingjian have now? He’s this year’s Regional Champion, with outstanding performance which has gone unseen in the many decades past. If we were only to charge them five gold each, there would be people who would doubt the quality of our class.”
Anthony asked, “Then how much do you think we should be charging?”
“At least twenty gold.” Looking at Anthony’s bulging eyeballs, Ferdinand continued to say, “Don’t tell me that you find it expensive. Xingjian has comprehended all seven levels of the Pantheon Monument’s mysteries. How much is this worth alone? I think that everyone would fight for a chance to attend this class at twenty gold.”
Putting Anthony aside, how much money could they earn if they were to charge each person twenty gold per month?
Fang Xingjian shook his head and said, “Ferdinand, I don’t plan on guiding the students myself.”
Looking at Ferdinand’s astonished gaze, Fang Xingjian said, “However, I can write down what I have learnt from my cultivation. You guys can use the things written to guide the other students.
“I’ll be writing down the detailed cultivation means for five sets of basic nurturing sword techniques. You guys can just follow what I write down.”
Fang Xingjian had also given it much thought as it was impossible for him to head out everyday and guide students in their cultivation.
However, with his current mastery in sword arts and understanding of the physical body, he would be able to come up with a set of extremely detailed teaching materials.
This was especially so since he was now completely capable of writing down the various possible encounters with each move and stance, while taking into consideration the various details of the cultivation.
While it was not comparable to the effects of having him provide guidance personally, the effects would definitely still be stronger than being taught by other teachers.
As long as Ferdinand, Anthony, and Robert could memorize the contents and provide guidance based on the materials, there should not be much problems.
However, Ferdinand stroked his chin and said, “Xingjian, although your talent is unrivalled, if you’re not the one providing the guidance and it’s just cultivating with reference to your concluded experience instead, the attraction would not be comparable to the previous idea.”
“Then what other ways do you have?”
Ferdinand licked his lips. At the mention of earning money, his brain starting to circulate at a great speed. He said, “If you can bring up your reputation even more, then we shouldn’t set up a martial arts class. You can just write your own book and put it up for sale. What do you think?”
