To be able to receive sudden inspiration and sense good fortune and calamities… These were abilities that only people who were at the fourth tier of the Divine level possessed. Yet now that Fang Xingjian had completed the tenth level of the mystical prints, he gained this ability in advance.
The effects of such abilities on the increment of one's battle prowess were not directly visible, but the overall help rendered was far too great. It could be said that it would be hard for the individual to encounter situations such as ambush and assassination. This was because once the individual sensed any danger, they would just need to change their course of movements.
'Excellent. The tenth level of the mystical prints brought increments to my talent once again. I can even see some futuristic trends, and my control over the physical body has reached an extreme. It's good for me to strive to attain brain regeneration now.'
Thinking of this, Fang Xingjian sat down cross-legged, planning to strive toward attaining the level of brain regeneration at one go.
With the deathly sword intent and the will that surpassed life and death, both of which he had condensed in Demonic City, Fang Xingjian could have attempted to reach the level of brain regeneration a long time ago. However, it was because he had wanted to play it safe that he had been putting off this issue until now.
He continuously scanned the situation in his brain, constantly monitoring and recording the situation that was occurring.
At the next moment, a gush of sword force swept across his brain, shattering it completely and turning it into meat paste.
That one sword attack required great courage—great courage that enabled one to step between life and death without fearing death.
At this moment, Fang Xingjian felt that he was gradually losing control over his entire physical body. His heartbeat and breathing had both stopped, and his consciousness was also starting to become blurry due to the disappearance of his brain!
Deathly sword intent was unleashed explosively, allowing him to regain clear consciousness. Then Fang Xingjian's brain started wriggling and regenerating.
The brain was the part of the human body that was in charge of managing one's thoughts and consciousness.
Losing it meant that the human body would not be able to think or control itself. This would apply even for a top notch Demigod.
However, when a level 29 Conferred Knight's martial will reached an extreme level of intensity, their will would be able to exist for a short moment of time even without the brain. They would be able to transmit information within their neural networks through their will and recover their physical body.
Intense martial will was the prerequisite toward reaching the level of brain regeneration.
The second requirement was unrivalled talent. One must be able to recall the living state of the brain at the previous moment, as well as its entire structure. With that, one would then regenerate the brain as would be done with the other parts of the body.
Any slight mistakes that might occur during this process could bring rise to an irreversible result. In a less severe situation, one might lose their memories, while in a more severe case, one might lose part of their brain's function and possibly even become an idiot or enter a vegetative state.
Fang Xingjian had already fulfilled both conditions. When he condensed the deathly sword intent earlier, he had already been in possession of a will that could continue to exist for a short period of time even if his brain were dead. The tenth level of the mystical prints, in addition with his original talent in sword arts, had given him memory power and calculative abilities that surpassed human limits.
After his brain shattered, he immediately started to regenerate it. Countless cells that could not be seen by the naked eye continued to be produced, moved, and regenerated. At the beginning, the process was a little slow, but it got increasingly faster eventually.
The entire brain was continuously regenerating and reassembling itself at a speed that could be seen by the naked eye. After a short few seconds, his pupils abruptly contracted, and his cranial nerves were already reconnected to the entire body. He felt an intense pain run through his body, and he shivered uncontrollably.
The brain regeneration was a success.
At this stage, Fang Xingjian had finally become a Demigod with four tiers of perfection in his specialty seeds, body toughness physical particles, and brain regeneration. Moreover, with over 10,000 specialty seeds and 1.08 billion physical particles, his abilities far surpassed that of ordinary Demigods. He could even fight a few rounds with first tier Divine level experts.
His success in attaining brain regeneration also meant that he no longer had any weakness. Even if his brain were to be destroyed in the future, he would be able to recover at any moment and continue on with his battle.
'After experiencing so much hard work and difficulties, I've finally gotten this far.'
Memories of his past two years ran through Fang Xingjian's mind at the speed of lightning, and strong emotions flashed in his eyes. He felt a strong desire—the urge to strive to attain the Divine level.
In fact, with how he had become an unprecedented case with four tiers of perfection, he had all the qualifications to attain the Divine level.
However, just as Fang Xingjian was thinking about this, a twisted emotion rose in his heart.
"Hmmm? This is the ability of Sudden Inspiration and Sensing Good Fortune and Calamities?" Fang Xingjian immediately understood that this meant that if he were to strive for the Divine level right now, it would be extremely disadvantageous for his future.
This was how amazing the Sudden Inspiration was.
Humans were faced with countless options, but in situations where there was a lack of information, one tended to not know which option was better.
However, Sudden Inspiration could help one to gain a vague feeling that allowed them to make the right choices, keeping away from harm and heading toward the good.
Therefore, at tier four of the Divine level, one would already be able to stand at the top of the world, and it would even be hard to die. Right now, with the tenth level of the mystical prints, Fang Xingjian had gained this ability.
He then wondered if the Second Prince also had such an ability? Had the Second Prince decided to help him due to his Sudden Inspiration?
"Since that's the case, I'll train for a little longer until I've completed all ether organs before I strive for the Divine level." Fang Xingjian stood up and moved his body a little, letting out an explosive sound that was like many steel reinforcing bars colliding together. 'Mmm, now that I've reached four tiers of perfection and also have the World-Engulfing Battle God Armor, I can go and get the Panwu Heavenly Raiment, right?'
Just as Fang Xingjian was deciding on this, he felt a strong feeling of danger, and there was piercing pain between his brows.
Therefore, he closed his eyes and started to exude an ineffable and etheral disposition. It was as if it was something that was right before him. Yet, at the same time, it seemed like it did not exist in this world.
'Oh? Could it be that someone has laid an ambush for me at the place with the Panwu Heavenly Raiment? Or is there danger with the Panwu Heavenly Raiment itself?'
Fang Xingjian gave it some thought and then dropped the plan on obtaining the Panwu Heavenly Raiment. Instead, he sat down and started cultivating.
"Since there's danger, I shall conserve energy and be fully prepared while waiting for the right opportunity, continuing to merge the Five God-Slaying Swords as I form ether organs."
Fang Xingjian made the calculations. With his current progress, he would need another four to five months before he could finishing creating all of his ether organs. To ordinary people, this was already unbelievably fast. However, to Fang Xingjian, it still seemed to be too slow.
As for the merging of the God-Slaying Five Swords, it was something which Fang Xingjian had started to work on ever since the exchange with the Fourth Prince and Prince Philip. His goal was to integrate all five swords into one, such that a single sword attack could hold the prowess of each of the Five God-Slaying Swords.
However, each of the Five God-Slaying Swords was an extremely deep and profound martial technique which ordinary people might not be able to complete their studies on even if they were to spend their entire lifetimes studying. Even with Fang Xingjian's talent, it was not an easy task to merge all five swords into one.
This was especially the case when he felt that he was still short of something in his knowledge of sword arts, which caused the process of his integration to be a little slow. It was because he had to create a way to integrate the many sword techniques and moves all by himself.
However, the slow speed was only something that was relative to Fang Xingjian himself. When he was up against Xia's martial will, he had already integrated the sword of Infiltrating Void and the Pursuit Light sword ripples. This was something which would take other people several decades or even centuries of hard work, having several generations of people modifying it before it could be achieved.
Additionally, the art of formations he obtained from the Henry Clan was very interesting as well. It contained many things which Fang Xingjian had not seen before. He had the feeling that if he were to study the art of formations properly and integrate it into his sword art, thereby creating sword formations, he would be able to increase the prowess of his Killing technique once again.
