Fang Xingjian's current location was several hundred meters under the surface. At his command, the person on the ground immediately replied, "Sir, the Headmaster gave the order that we must never remove Sasa's seal. After all, he's a level 29 Conferred Knight."
Fang Xingjian said coldly, "Let him go."
Streams of sword light soared into the air, and not long later, series of gasps could be heard. Fang Xingjian said, "Let him go. If there are any problems, I'll shoulder the responsibilities."
Soon after, the aqueous gold under Fang Xingjian's feet scattered away like water ripples, revealing Sword Saint Sasa's body. With the binding over his body removed, Sasa let out a long breath.
He glared at Fang Xingjian coldly and said, "Excellent. How would you like to die? On the account that you released me, I can let you die a quick death." Simultaneously, his mind was spinning very quickly. 'What on earth is Fang Xingjian trying to pull? Could it be that James and the others are nearby? Is there an ambush?'
However, no matter how much he tried to observe the light waves and sound waves with his Heaven's Perception, he could not sense the existence of any experts nearby.
Fang Xingjian smiled. Then at the next moment, his body suddenly disappeared.
Violent killing intent gushed forth, and Sasa could not react in time. He could only do his best to leap backward. A wound appeared on his chest. The surface of his skin was completely split open. However, it was still insufficient to completely cut through the muscles within.
Taking a look at the injuries on his chest, Sasa brushed past it lightly with his palm, and the injuries were healed, leaving not even a hint of a scar.
"Indestructible... It truly lives up to its name." Unknowingly, Fang Xingjian had once again appeared at where he initially stood. Sword intent gushed forth from his eyes, locking down onto Sasa.
Sasa spoke nonchalantly, "My heavenly thunders and terrestrial magnetism forces have already condensed my body's toughness to be comparable to that of a level 25 Divine Weapon. To think that you're able to slice open the surface of my skin with your bare hands... Have you already reached level 26? Are you already able to attack heavenly thunders and terrestrial magnetism forces directly?"
Level 24 Conferred Knights could strengthen the heavenly thunders and terrestrial magnetism forces between physical particles, and the toughness of their bodies would start to increase tremendously.
Level 26 Conferred Knights could directly attack the heavenly thunders and terrestrial magnetism forces of physical items, splitting the particles of physical objects, and damaging the structure of the particles.
That level of attack and defence was extremely powerful. However, it was only when one reached the peak of level 29 and a 100% ether synchronization rate that their level of mastery in the skills they gained at the previous levels would increase. After this, they would be able to train up their body to become as tough as a level 29 Superior Divine Weapon and increase their physical attacks to become capable of damaging a level 29 Superior Divine Weapon.
At level 24 and level 26, the strengthening effect would be very limited. It was impossible to control one’s body in as accurate a manner as when one's ether synchronization rate had reached 100%.
Right now, Fang Xingjian could split open Sasa’s skin. So, to Sasa, it seemed as if Fang Xingjian had cultivated to level 26.
"To think that your cultivation has already reached this phase. All the more I can't keep you alive now."
At the next moment, Sasa used his fingers as a sword and dashed right up to Fang Xingjian. He tapped out with his finger like drawing a treasured sword out from its sheath. Then he thrust it toward Fang Xingjian's forehead as gleams of cold light shone.
Fang Xingjian did not back off in the least. He punched out toward Sasa's sword fingers, turning the force from the punch into sword force, clashing against Sasa's sword fingers directly.
Gushing force shot outward with the two of them in the center, turning into streams of air currents which seethed relentlessly.
Electricity sparkled on Fang Xingjian's fist and Sasa's fingers.
Then a hint of astonishment flashed across Sasa's face. He tapped out consecutively with his sword fingers, bringing about streams of starlight sweeping out. However, he was met with Fang Xingjian's punches time after time.
The more they fought, the better Fang Xingjian felt. As long whistling sounds rang out, his two fists swung with violent prowess, gushing toward Sasa with the majesty of the mountains and the seas.
Many slash marks continued to appear on the surrounding surface. The ground tremored, as if there was a small-scale earthquake.
Level 29 Conferred Knights could modify their bodies at the microscopic level, continuing to strengthen the heavenly thunders and terrestrial magnetism forces in their bodies. They could also keep on attacking the heavenly thunders and terrestrial magnetism forces between the particles in their opponents' bodies.
Be it to attack or defend, they could target the intrinsic structure of physical objects directly.
This was how it was during the current battle between Fang Xingjian and Sasa. It looked like physical bodies colliding against each other. However, each collision actually consisted of repeated clashes between physical particles. They were continuously depleting the heavenly thunders and terrestrial magnetism forces in each other's bodies.
Once either of them had the heavenly thunders and terrestrial magnetism forces between their particles weakened, then their physical state would be destroyed. On the surface, it would appear as if their hands or legs had broken, or their tendons or bones could be broken.
It meant that as long as the one had sufficient energy in their bodies, they would be able to maintain the tenacity of their bodies.
Bang, bang, bang, bang! As Sasa launched quick consecutive attacks, he only felt that his opponent had a great level of sword arts mastery and attributes which were not lower than his own. Sasa could not get the upper hand through his moves and could only try to push forth with his strength.
However, Fang Xingjian had the enhancement of the level five mystical prints and his world's best sword arts talent. This meant the prowess of the heavenly thunders and terrestrial magnetism forces in Fang Xingjian's body was not weaker than Sasa’s. Sasa went head-on against Fang Xingjian, but he realized that the toughness of their bodies were at the same level. It was to the extent that even when Sasa used brute force, he still could not bring down his opponent.
With an infuriated bellow, the aura from all 500 specialty seeds throughout Sasa's body rose up and over 100,000 particles exploded. The boundless energies of the small world in his body were refined, and Sasa's extremely powerful power exploded.
With each step he took, the earth tremored, the atmosphere cried out, and the air in the surroundings trembled crazily, as if even the world was astonished by his violent powers.
Astonishing martial will swept into Fang Xingjian's body, but it was smashed by the Heaven's Volition Sword Intent.
"Fang Xingjian, you're courting death today."
Hmph! With a cold grunt, the aura of the 102 specialty seeds in Fang Xingjian rose up. It was as if several tens of thousand of generators were activated at the same time, and overwhelming powers gushed forth.
Simultaneously, armor and supporting force fields appeared, and the surrounding air exploded. The prowess of the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor were unleashed at full force, and as the ground tremored, 50% of Domirov's powers were added to Fang Xingjian's body.
"Die!" Sword Saint Sasa's body flickered and disappeared. Then the two of them collided fiercely once again.
The violent powers seemed to turn the entire space into chaos, and a series of explosive sounds continued to ring out. The entire world shook, and buildings on the surface of the grounds started to collapse.
Underground, it was as if several hundred thousand kilograms worth of explosives had been set off in succession. The terrifying whizzing sounds astonished the entire academy, and countless people rushed toward the direction of the battlefield.
With a loud boom, theirs fists met, but Fang Xingjian remained motionless. Sasa was the one who felt as if his entire body was swept by a tremendous force, like he was being pierced through repeatedly by several tens or hundreds of swords. It was extremely painful, and he retreated over ten steps before all the powers were finally fully discharged from his body.
'My ether synchronization rate has reached 100%. This is why I can cultivate my heavenly thunders and terrestrial magnetism forces on a deeper level, strengthening my body to be comparable to a level 25 Divine Weapon.
'What is Fang Xingjian's ether synchronization rate right now? Why is it that his body seems to be slightly stronger than mine?'
