“That is too extreme, right.” Liang Qiu frowned.
“If you guys do not go through the Special Death training, you guys will die at the hands of the Honorable Martial Group.” Bing replied coldly: “With your current standards, completing the Death Special training only gives you 30% of victory. Your luck is not bad, Honorable Martial Group has not been doing well recently, they are starting to have some friction with Lion King Lei Ang. No one will put their eyes on you small farts, if not, you all will be worse.”
No one made a sound, they knew that Bing was right. To them, Honorable Martial Group was too big. Any of them in charge of Northern Sky’s 19 continents, were able to mobilize powers, and completely decimate them.
“I am not a martial artist.” Bing swept his gaze across everyone: “My goal is not too strong, it’s just to obtain victory. Any way of victory, using schemes or using raw strength, in my eyes, doesn’t have a difference. I am unable to guide all of you in how to become strong martial artists, but I can tell you all, victory does not have to do with being strong. Or should I say, strong in my eyes, and your definition of strong, have a huge difference.”
Bing’s strong aura permeated out, locking down everyone in front of him.
His calmness and cool headedness came from experiencing the fires of war and being sharpened, allowing him to appear to have extraordinary strength, even his voice seemed to carry some sort of aura.
“The strength of martial artists come from their specializations, as humans have limited time energy, but if they train their specializations, their achievements will be even higher.” Bing’s tone suddenly changed: “In theory, it is completely possible, but there is a precondition, and that is you must keep living.”
Everyone were all attracted to Bing’s words.
“This is the first class I am giving all of you. Live, then you have the chance! I have taken a look, the youngest saint domain was 28 years old, that means, you all must live for at least 28 years, to have the possibility of attaining that. While most of the people who reached the saint domain, were all in the ages of 40 and older. That also means, you must live for 40 years, to increase that possibility.”
“In these 40 years, you will meet countless of dangers and chance upon many difficulties. You require resources, star rocks, spirit cards etc. etc. At the same time, other martial artists also require them. So, you all have that benefit. Very few people can obtain natural resources, so the fight will be intense. Trust on this, as you all have experienced on that. This is a war, if everyone was good to each other, that would be a joke. Ok, even if you’re isolated in the deepest jungle, bitterly training for 20 years, you still need to fight. The feeling of danger, the inability to predict your enemy, or what kind of enemy you are facing. A sword that can break all techniques is the dream of a swordsman, it is beautiful, but before you realize it, you must at least live till that day.”
Everyone’s faces became solemn, Bing’s words were right, all of them had experienced it before. Also, Bing’s expanded point of view, was something they were lacking.
“The road of a martial artist is extremely dangerous and arduous, because it is based upon conflicts and fights that cannot be predicted.” Bing said: “From my point of view, the most dangerous part, is that there will always be unforeseen danger. You may have the talent or the bravery or the strength, but that will not gain you the victory in all the battles you face, but it is only to increase the chances of you gaining the victory.”
“Of course, a martial artist’s fight and an army’s battle is different. A martial artist’s fight, has a bigger leeway, and you can choose to fight or not. An Army’s battle, does not have such leeway, because the power to choose is not in your hands.”
Tang Tian muttered: “Army deserter! Why run? Godlike young man is not scared of any fights!”
Ah Mo Li’s eyes lit up, and nodded his head: “This lively martial man will fight too!”
Ling Xu snorted: “My spear will pierce them all.”
To the three of them, Bing was pissed, his face blackened: “Then the three of you go and kill your way to Honorable Martial Group!”
The three of them exposed a ‘You are an idiot’ expression to each other.
“Am I that dumb?” Ling Xu’s looked with disdain towards Bing.
Tang Tian and Ah Mo Li replied at the same time: “Yes!”
The two of them jumped together, and high-fived each other in the air as celebration, having similar thoughts felt extremely good.
Ling Xu’s eyes narrowed, both of them spewing fire, his spear pointed at the two of them, and said while clenching his teeth: “Come, let us fight then!”
Crane did not even look at them, with a ‘I knew this would happen’ expression, he said with sorrow: “This is life’s torture.”
Sima Xiang Shan sneered: “He he, intellectual people have their smart points, stupid ones are always the same.”
Han Bing Ning sat there like an ice statue.
Liang Qiu who was older and wiser finally stood out: “Hey hey, stop messing around, he isn’t finished yet.”
Bing almost cried in tears of joy, this group of assholes finally has a normal person!
Liang Qiu then consoled the rest: “Although he bullshits slightly, everyone just hang on, just hang on!”
BIng’s expression froze.
KIlling intent surged into his brain, Bing’s heart became cold as ice, he decided to arrogantly overlook and ignore these group of baring fangs and claws people.
Such stupid humans!
You all will know soon enough, what will happen when you offend Master Bing.
I forgot to tell all of you, the first one to arouse the Death training, will have an even more frightening experience, which was worse than dying!
You will all howl and grief under my evil clutches, you all will cry, cry and beg your Master Bing to give you all a chance to live.
Ke, that will be a tragedy!
In the world, tragedies happens everyday, and happened too many times. Master Bing here will pity you all…but will not let you all go!
The poker face was quiet, but his gaze was unfathomable.
Tang Tian suddenly stopped, he looked around, his face weird: “I just thought I felt some dangerous Qi?”
“EH, it’s gone, was it my imagination?” Tang Tian kept looking around, after a long while, he finally sat down, and raised his head: “Uncle, you can continue.”
The poker face remained motionless, and spoke indifferently.
“To me, a martial artist should prepare two types of capabilities, one is the capability to be able to resolve all types of fights, and the other is the capability to escape upon meeting danger.”
“Special Death Training, specially drills on these two points. But before that, I need to give you all better foundations, and will use the first method, which is to absorb blood meridians.”
“Blood meridians?” Aside from Tang Tian, everyone was stunned.
“That’s right. You all don’t have to worry too much. All these blood meridians, are simply to improve the conditions of your body. You won’t have to change your mental cultivations, or martial techniques, or to walk the road of Onyx Soul.”
Only after hearing that, did everyone heave a sigh of relief.
“What’s more, it is not as simple as just absorbing blood meridians. The higher grade the blood meridians, the higher requirements required from the original body. Your bodies are all ordinary, and are only suitable for ordinary blood meridians.”
Bing glanced around then continued: “Although these blood meridians are ordinary, but it will greatly help all of you. You all have over relied on your True Power. You all will realize, that having a good body, will better improve the way you use your True Power.”
He took out a bunch of test tubes.
“Ah Mo Li is power based, and trains in the Wild Earth Blade, your body is strong, amongst everyone, other than Tang Tian, you are most suited for blood meridians that can activate. I have prepared for you an ancient blood meridian, and is the highest grade out of all of these blood meridians. It’s purity rate only has 50% of the Ancient Bear Race blood meridians. The Ancient Bear Race splits into Ursa Minor Constellation and Ursa Major Constellation, which is the current Ursa minor race and Ursa Major race. Purity rate of 50%, for you, you should be able to absorb it. Also, the Bear Race blood meridians is of the earth affinity.”
“Han Bing Ning specializes in water affinity sword techniques, and relies mainly on cold Qi. I have prepared the Octans Constellation silver blood meridians, [Octan’s Heart], it is from a Southern Sky Constellation, matching with your attributes, purity rate of 80%.”
“Liang Qiu, I will give you the Centaurus Constellation silver blood meridians [Centaurus Blood], purity rate of 80%. Centaurus Constellation blood meridians, is mainly used to raise speed. But it actually has another advantage, is that it’s endurance is extremely outstanding. The martial techniques that you train in, usually requires tangling around with the opponent, by increasing your endurance and stamina, it will help you a lot.”
“Sima Xiang Shan, I have prepared the [Night Snake Blood] from Hydrus Constellation, silver rank, purity rate 80%. It will make you even sharper, especially in the night. Your body will also become softer, and allow you to use unconventional movements.”
“The four of you, need to absorb the blood meridians, and the importance of your training, is not only to completely absorb it, but to assimilate it with your techniques. With the cruel special training, it will greatly increase your absorption rate.”
“Ling Xu, you have no way to use blood meridians, so, I have prepared you with another special training.”
“Crane, as long as you can activate the blood meridians in your body…”
Crane suddenly cut Bing: “I do not wish to activate the blood meridians in my body.”
Everyone was extremely surprised, they did not think that, Crane’s blood meridians, was not only different, but what was more surprising was that Crane would decline activating his own blood meridians.
Bing pondered for a while, then did not ask much, and said: “Ok, then I will change it for you. Although I do not understand the martial techniques of the Ancient Eastern Sects, but somehow I know of a few Ancient Eastern Sword techniques training methods.”
Crane’s eyes lit up, he lost his voice: “You know the methods to train in Ancient Eastern Sword Techniques?”
Bing nodded his head: “Yes, I had a war friend, who trained in the Ancient Eastern Sword Techniques. Although you train in a different sword technique, but I think, it is possible to borrow the experience from this area.”
Crane was extremely excited, Crane Sect martial techniques originated from the Ancient East, and was extremely different from Heaven Road martial techniques.
Legends said that in the far east, they had their own version of Heaven Road, and that was where the Ancestor Crane Spiritual Master came from. Crane Sect martial techniques stood out by themselves, but because it was so different, it caused the younger generations to be unable to find the original sources, and would always have to use other people’s experiences to learn.
Tang Tian was already impatient, and rushed forward: “What about me what about me?”
“You will know it when the time is right.”
Bing suddenly smiled.
