To Tang Tian and Ling Xu, the episode on the road was nothing worth their attention. But those drifting swordsmen spying from the dark, were all intimidated by Ling Xu. Ling Xu’s methods did not appear to be very clever, but he had displayed his power thoroughly. This kind of pure power, instead caused people to fear.
Every single one of the drifting swordsmen who watched the fight, only one phrase entered their minds – Heaven’s Road Grade Martial artist!
The five men who were wiped out by Ling Xu were famous martial artists, the Five Guo Tigers, their names struck a chord in all the drifting swordsmens hearts, their combined power, was comparable to heaven’s road grade martial artists.
To be able to wipe them out, Ling Xu had displayed a very powerful strength, and made people suspect that Ling Xu was a heaven’s road grade martial artist.
Heaven’s road grade martial artists possessed very strong deterrent force in Corvus Constellation, even along the roads at night.
But at the same time it attracted a few strong martial artists’ attention.
What Tang Tian could not even expect, was at the other side, Bing was also attracting a storm.
Liu Ya Zhi’s face was dark, and the companions at his side tactfully kept quiet.
Liu Ya Zhi was interrogated for an entire two hours. The matter, was actually blown big. The organization was already established for over a thousand years. This organization that was formed by machine engineers, possessed a long history, from the very day that it was created, they were already thinking of ways and creating a path to revive the era of mechanical weapons.
Finally, they had successfully merged the star spirit beasts and blood meridians power to create a different type of mechanical weapon. This brand new mechanical weapon was hailed as the blood meridians weapon, although it was a different type, it was much stronger.
After hibernating for so many years, the organization was waiting to amaze the world with this one single brilliant and aggressive feat, and shake the world.
They did not expect that at this important juncture, the whole organization’s higher ups would be the ones greatly shaken. King Kong was the most outstanding mechanical weapon of the organization, and Liu Ya Zhi was an expert of the organization, but he was actually defeated by another mechanical martial artist.
Seems like the opponent’s mechanical weapon, was actually equally outstanding, or maybe actually even more!
They were so shocked they wanted to know.
“We need to investigate thoroughly! We must definitely investigate it thoroughly! It is impossible that this mechanical weapon just sprouted out of nowhere, behind it there must be machine engineers! We need to look for this machine engineer and all of its’ related influences! No matter the cost!” One of the elders said.
All the elders in their seats had a gloomy expression.
If this machine engineer was just one person it would be easy to handle, but if the opponent was also a powerhouse influence, to them, it meant that they had a strong competitor.
All the powerful mechanical martial artists from the organization were all sent out, following the target direction, they pursued and gave chase.
It was reported that there were traces of the opponent up ahead.
Bing shot a glance out at a distant place, a cold intent flitting past his eyes.
“I have played enough, it’s time to go back.” Bing’s tone of voice was very lazy, in his eyes, the group of people chasing him, were one hundred percent a group of beginners.
He had brought them round and round in a big circle, to the point that even he did not know where he was.
“Never did I think that, there would still be people who could create such weird mechanical weapons.” Bing’s face was filled with disgust: “But it really is ugly.”
Born in the Southern Cross Army, Bing loathed blood meridian weapons, although there was no reason, in his eyes, it was an abomination.
“But looking at this, the golden era of the mechanical martial artists, is about to start.” Bing muttered to himself: “Seems like I need to grab Little Tang Tang to train, and cannot let him be taken by Ghost Claw completely. With that person’s attitude, it shouldn’t be that difficult right, hmmm, definitely so.”
Bing irresponsibly thought of this decision.
In the past he did not wish for Tang Tian to put too much focus on the mechanical weapons because he felt that it was already their downfall, that was a generation worth of mistakes going down the wrong path.
But after this period of time of interacting with Sky Tiger, and meeting the King Kong, it made him realize that, the new era of mechanics was about to come. These new mechanical weapons, compared to his generation, were much stronger.
He did not know where this route will end.
But as long as there was a bit of hope, how could he give up?
Bing was spirited.
Suddenly he regained his senses, that poker face that was full of style starting to laugh to himself.
Seeing how poor they were now, to let Sai Lei create a mechanical weapon, who knew how long it would take.
Hearing noises coming from afar, Bing stopped daydreaming, looked at the little black dots in the distance and could not help grinning.
He had purposely brought these people, and walked the wrong direction. Regarding the distance to Three Spirits City, he was unsure of how far it was. These people would definitely not think that, in the spirit region, he could casually enter the martial spirit chamber entrance. In the spirit region, the link between the spirit general and the owner, was extremely intimate. Bing realized, in the spirit region, no matter how far it was, he could clearly feel Tang Tian and the martial spirit chamber entrance’s location. What led him to be most surprised was that, he could go back to the entrance of the martial spirit chamber.
After all he was just a spirit general….
Bing could not say if he was happy or sad, and simply just sighed.
His figure would gradually become diluted, and eventually disappear.
BIng’s return, did not surprise Tang Tian, as he was focused on grinding the anvils.
Bing slowly strolled to Ghost Claw’s side: “Seems like he improved a lot, over this period of time, he had mastered it.”
“If you talk about real time, there is still half a month.” Ghost Claw’s gaze never left Tang Tian’s body one bit, but Bing could tell from his voice, that there was inexplicable joy and emotion that could not be hidden.
“His speed is rather fast.” Bing shot a glance at Tang Tian, and was surprised.
“He has been working hard.” Ghost Claw said coldly.
“Really makes people anticipative, how powerful this person will become.” Bing was also very anticipative, if Tang Tian could complete learning the grandmaster grade Fire Scythe Ghost Claw, matching with the Peacock armor, his power should be amplified multiple folds!”
Ghost Claw did not say anything, and simply fixed his gaze on the figure gasping for breath amidst the sparks.
Ghost Claw did not have a disciple in his life, and the young man in front of him, was the man whom he had decided to throw all his heart’s blood and sweat and tears into.
Tang Tian was completely immersed in training, although his ten fingers colors did not change much, but inside his body, the meridians connecting to his ten fingers, were studier by a full five times!
The transformation was not only in his ten fingers, regardless if it was his fists or palms now, the power was much greater than before.
This was the main reason why he was putting so much effort in.
If he completed grinding the ten thousand anvils, then the meridians in his shoulders, how much stronger would it become?
Tang Tian was looking forward to it.
“The Five Guo Tiger Brothers have been killed.” The person who spoke was tall, dressed in a black swordmaster robes, his face had a frivolous smile.
“Five Tigers? Are they worth it?” The person who spoke did not even lift his head, but in his tone of voice, it was filled with disdain, expressed without consideration.
He was carefully grinding his sword, once in awhile taking it up onto his hand, checking out the sword spine.
The black clothed swordsman was extremely familiar with his friend’s character, and laughed without making a sound, and continued: “They were killed by one person.”
“One person?” The man grinding the sword stopped moving.
“En, they were using the Fire Crow amplification, initially they thought they could win, who knew the opponent’s hand was much faster than them, and wasted them.” The swordsman dressed in black stretched his back and said.
“Using his hand speed, he killed five of them? One person?” The man grinding his sword was stirred.
“En, that person uses a spear.” The black clothed swordsman yawned: “He should be Heaven’s road grade, maybe he isn’t, but he isn’t far from it.”
A different color flit crossed The man grinding the sword’s eyes, his expression maintaining calm: “You came to look for me, it wasn’t to tell me all this right.”
“Ha ha! It’s still you who understands me!” The black clothed swordsman laughed out loud: “It’ll be Teacher Mo’s birthday soon, we two poor turtles, have nothing to give. I saw that the carriage was not too bad, silver heavenly steed, if we gift it to Teacher Mo, it would mean something.”
The man grinding the sword frowned: “What plans do you have with Teacher Mo?”
The black clothed swordsman who was found out was embarrassed: “I heard that in Teacher Mo’s hands is a silver ranked Piscus Austrinus Sword, I have been eyeing it for a long time. Since Teacher Mo cannot use it, the silver ranked Heavenly Steed car, so majestic, I am thinking that Teacher Mo would definitely be willing to exchange it.”
“The opponent is a Heaven’s grade Martial artist.” The man grinding his sword reminded him.
“That is why, I came to look for you, right!” He laughed, and he quickly continued: “Also, if we really cannot beat them, we can still run.”
The man grinding thought for a while, and said: “Don’t rush. Five Guo Tiger Brothers were from the Guo Family sword village. The Guo family clan, are rude and unreasonable, how will they leave the matter like that. I remember that the Five Guo Tiger brothers teacher, it should be Guo Dong.”
“Guo Dong!” The cheeky expression on the black clothed swordsman instantly disappeared, his expression becoming heavier: “Then that is a problem,”
“That’s right.” The man grinding nodded his head;” He is a a Heaven’s Road Grade martial artist, that has always been ranked inside the top ten thousand. He has stayed in the Guo village for five years, and yet his ranking hasn’t dropped out, this person is too strong!”
The black clothed swordsman nodded his head in agreement, in all the Heaven’s Road grade martial artists, to be able to be in the top ten thousand, they were the true experts. Those who had just entered Heaven’s Road grade, had no ranking. Only if you continued to fight, discover new shipping routes etc, could your ranking gradually rise.
Heaven Road rankings, were jointly formulated by the two great constellations Cepheus and Cassiopeia Constellation, and they had a complicated computing method.
Cepheus and Cassiopeia Constellation had exceptionally strong martial artist, but stood aloof from all the worldly matters, they collaborated with a few heavenly bodies to create the Immortal Martial Library. Going through successive generations of operations, all these immortal martial libraries had already opened in various constellations and planets of Heaven road.
No one knew of the beginning of the Heavens Road rankings , even the current authorities, who had already been through 700 plus years of development.
All the generations of Cepheus and Cassiopeia, had always maintained a neutral standpoint, and never participated in any fight for power. So the rankings also received many people’s trust.
“So The five Guo Tiger Brothers were his students.” The man in black sighed: “Then they are in deep trouble,”
