After just 3 days, he had already comprehended the mystic art of using sword qi to smelt star river sand.
Liu Ming rested another day to recover his mental state to the best, then he injected spiritual power into the Celestial Tablet in the sea of consciousness.
After a while.
In a gray space, Liu Ming was sitting cross-legged. In front of him was a pale golden magic array about 3 meters in size. Above the array, a 2 feet 8 inches golden sword was floating motionless.
In the center of the array, a normal white cloth bag was put under a layer of golden light curtain. It was 1/10 of the star river sand specially prepared by Liu Ming.
Starlight slowly overflowed from the cloth bag, and it filled the array like a galaxy filled with stars in the circle.
At this moment, Liu Ming’s expression changed. He made a gesture, and the Void Sword burst into dazzling golden light. A golden sword qi went straight into the golden light curtain.
Next, a strange scene happened!
The starlight-like sand was brought out by the golden sword qi from the cloth bag, forming a small vortex in the array, then it turned into a small sword composed of starlight.
As Liu Ming constantly changed gestures, the star river sand was changing shape under the guidance of the faint golden sword qi. The starlight it emitted was also more and more shiny.
After 10 minutes, the star river sand turned into a fist-sized silver sand cluster, which kept flashing a faint silver light.
“It should be almost there.”
After Liu Ming muttered to himself, he flicked the golden array with 1 hand.
A golden light was launched at the golden light curtain, then the silver sand cluster rushed into the golden sword in the air.
At the same time, the golden sword kept vibrating in the air and making a clear sound.
Immediately afterward, the whistling sound came as the silver sand turned into a small silver snake that wrapped the golden sword. After a while, the entire sword was wrapped in it.
The clear sound of the silver sword also gradually became thicker.
Liu Ming tapped lightly with 1 hand while spouting a fist-sized faint golden from his mouth. After spinning in the air, it hit the small sword with a bang.
Immediately, the silver light wrapped around the flying sword kept flickering, then it turned into wisps of silver silk that went into the golden rune.
Seeing this, Liu Ming showed a slight smile, and he recalled the golden sword back into his hand.
He took a careful look at the Void Sword. Except for the fist-sized silver rune on the sword, there was not much difference.
The next moment, Liu Ming waved 1 hand, and the sword turned into 20 meters long golden sword rainbow that blasted at the 300 meters tall mountain.
A golden light beam penetrated the mountain, and the mountain collapsed into huge boulders.
Liu Ming smiled!
Although if he poured all the spiritual power into the true spirit flying sword or stimulated the star magnetic force, it would be no problem to destroy such a mountain, but he only used half of the spiritual power to achieve such damage. It seemed that the Void Sword’s sharpness and sword qi had been greatly improved after being fused with the star river sand.
However, he faintly felt that this 1/10 of the star river sand had not yet reached the fusion limit.
In the following time, Liu Ming closed his eyes again, silently recalling how to use the new skill mentioned in mystic art, then he began to change gestures.
After the golden sword trembled in the air, wisps of silver light surged out from the golden rune on the sword, turning into thin silver sand that wrapped the sword in it.
Liu Ming pointed at the silver sand and launched a spiral sword qi at it. “Puch”, the sword qi hit the silver sand curtain around the flying sword.
After the silver sand curtain trembled slightly, the silver light on the surface flowed for a while, then the spiral sword qi disappeared slowly.
This scene made Liu Ming overjoyed again!
According to the records of the book, the star river sand screen could offset part of the attack damage to protect the true spirit flying sword and minimize the damage on spirituality. It also mentioned that after fusing with the star river sand, the speed of sword qi recovery would be doubled, but Liu Ming couldn’t verify it for now.
After a whole day of forging, Liu Ming finally showed a trace of fatigue.
He closed his eyes, quitted the illusion and returned to his secret room.
He stood up, stretched, and then fell asleep on the huge green stone in the secret room.
For a period of time in the future, Liu Ming would enter the illusion every day, constantly trying to change the amount of star river sand to fuse with the Void Sword and testing the difference in power.
After repeated forging and testing, he finally found that about 1/9 of the remaining star river sand was just enough to maximize the power of the true spirit flying sword, and the sword qi would not be affected.
Half a year later, in the secret room, the layers of silver sand kept flowing. Suddenly, the silver light flashed, and countless slender silver silk filled the entire secret room.
He had successfully fused the star river sand into the Void Flying Sword, and he was very proficient in channeling it.
This star river sand could not only transform into layers of dazzling star sand to interfere with the enemy’s sight, but it could also cooperate with the conceal attribute of the Void Sword itself to launch a fatal blow. It could also turn the sand into silver sand swords that boosted the power of the Void Flying Sword.
“Congratulations, Master, for successfully fusing the star river sand into true spirit flying sword!” Xie’er, who was cultivating beside, smiled, stood up and clapped her hands to congratulate Liu Ming.
Liu Ming changed the sword gesture, and the silver sand stopped in the air, turning into silver silks that flew back into the golden sword.
After the golden sword made a thick chirp sound, it shot back into Liu Ming’s forehead.
“This is only the first step, the next step is the most important.” Liu Ming smiled faintly at Xie’er. He took out a silver elixir that was wrapped in three-color flames. It was the pellet grade sword fighting pill.
“Master, this seems to be… the elixir that was found in Small Flame World that day.” Xie’er said with a moving expression upon seeing this.
“That’s right, this pill is a sword fighting pill, a necessity for forging Sword Maru. Fei’er is still at a critical moment in his cultivation, so you stay here to continue cultivating and protecting him. I want to go now.”
After Liu Ming instructed Xie’er, he opened the cave house enchantments and left the cave house.
For the next 3 days, Liu Ming stayed in the Scriptures Pavilion all day. He spent all the remaining contribution points reading through the books about Sword Maru and sword fighting pill in the pavilion, but the information was almost the same as what he knew. As for how to use the sword fighting pill, the descriptions were very brief.
However, this sword fighting pill required Celestial State alchemists to refine, and all the required materials were rare treasures. If he didn’t get 1 by chance in the Small Flame World, he was almost impossible to know about this pill.
Without this pill, he had to let the sword fight thousands of times before he could forge it into Sword Maru. The time and difficulty involved would probably make most sword cultivators sigh and stop thinking about it.
Liu Ming immediately decided to visit the Elder Han of the Tianjian Peak again and ask him about it.
He immediately left the Scriptures Pavilion and flew toward Elder Han’s cave house.
After a dozen minutes, in Elder Han’s cave house, a silver sand whizzed through the center of the hall like a tornado.
A faint golden light and a low buzz sound faintly came from the silver sand, which was Liu Ming’s true spirit flying sword.
“It is really not easy that you can control the amount of the star river sand so well that you boost this true spiritual flying sword to this extent. Even I can only estimate the amount to fuse. After all, I can’t waste precious material like the star river sand to practice fusing it to the ordinary flying sword.” The man in a gray robe on the side said with a slight nod.
“Grand elder has overpraised. Disciple came here this time, in addition to let senior see the Void Sword after the fusion, I also want to ask some advice from elder about another matter.” Liu Ming stopped the sword gesture and waved 1 hand.
The silver sand rolled back and returned to the rune on the flying sword, then it trembled slightly in midair and shot back into the sword pouch.
“Oh, what’s the matter? Tell me about it.” The man in a gray robe said in a deep voice.
“As for the method of advancing to Sword Maru, disciple has already understood it after consulting the relevant books. I came here today to inquire about the sword fighting pill.” Liu Ming replied with a blank face.
“Sword fighting pill? You have this item?” The man in a gray robe asked with a slightly surprised expression after hearing Liu Ming mentioning “sword fighting pill”.
“Elder has misunderstood. Disciple once accepted a sect mission to assist Elder Zhong Yi in refining sword fighting pill, so I knew about this pill. I heard that there seems to be a way to assist in refining the sword fight pill, so I came to ask Elder Han about it.” Liu Ming replied vaguely.
TL: If he really forges the Sword Maru, fighting the Celestial State isn’t a problem anymore…
