Swallowed Star - Chapter 659 Choice
Translator: Translation Nation Editor: Translation NationThe 3 manuals had different prices.
Gold Soul was a battle technique that was extremely powerful.
Nan Shen Armament 36 levels, it was created by the greatest doyen of the gold horn race Xi Luo Duo. This manual could be said to be the simplified version of the Armament. It was also a battle technique and also a form of studying the space and gold laws techniques.
The techniques were separated into 36 levels.
The weakest 1st level was one that someone with little comprehension of the gold and space laws could still use.
The strongest last level, required someone at about official undying level.
These 36 levels had an average level of strength. The strongest 36th level had high demands, yet it only had the power of an official level undying. These sort of special manuals, in terms of battle ability and study, had great benefits to the weaker people. However, their price usually wouldn’t go too high, and would normally be just about 100 million contribution points.
However, since it was created by Xi Luo Duo, it was priced at 910 hundred million points.
Xi Luo Duo’s journal was the records of his teachings jotted down by his undying disciples after his disappearance. It’s records were very detailed with many explanations, while showing examples along with usage techniques.
As it was a collection of records, not something Xi Luo Duo actually left himself, this journal was at most used as a reference in training, assisting type of manual. Even though it was related to Xi Luo Duo, it’s price was a total of only 100 million contribution points.
“Which one should I choose?”
“Without a doubt, Gold soul was the strongest of the 3 battle techniques. From the lowest to the highest 72nd level, even universe knights had techniques within.” Luo Feng thought. “The Nan Shen Armament 36 levels is very useful to my training and my future creation of my own techniques. According to Xi Luo Duos introduction, this manual was his most solid basic study. Of course, in terms of battle strength, it is obviously weaker, as it was only a way to use the Nan Shen Armament, it’s power reaching only official level undying level. This was at least two huge levels weaker than Gold Soul.”
“Xi Luo Duo’s journal has benefits to training, yet it’s not a systematic battle technique. However, a lot of it is made of Xi Luo Duo’s teachings to his disciples…its effects definitely won’t be weak at all. The only thing is, that it’s not systematic!” Luo Feng frowned.
All 3 of them had their pros and cons.
“Which one should I choose?”
“Gold Soul has a system for training till an extremely high point, Xi Luo Duo’s journal is purely an assisting manual.” Luo Feng frowned and pondered. “The 36 levels of the Nan Shen Armament’s strongest attack is only at the official level undying level. It’s obviously good for the basics, if only I could acquire a manual with all of Xi Luo Duo’s created techniques.”
Xi Luo Duo had a manual with techniques he created for himself.
It was extremely complex and profound.
It was a pity…
This technique tower didn’t have this manual, and only had the most basic of it, Nan Shen Armament 36 levels.
“Hm, I’ve made my decision.”
Luo Feng suddenly stood up.
Beside, Se Si who had been patiently waiting asked shocked, “Your majesty Luo Feng, have you made your choice?”
“Hm, this one.” Luo Feng picked the center book.
“Nan Shen Armament 36 levels?” The lady gold horn clansman was somewhat stunned. She looked curiously at Luo Feng, she had thought this human genius would pick the most expensive Gold soul. “Your majesty Luo Feng, I’ll report your choice of the Nan Shen Armament 36 levels to the upper management, you can go to the reception room on the 1st level to wait and your manual will be sent over shortly.”
“Ok.” Luo Feng smiled and nodded.
He headed down the stairs like a breeze.
“10 birds in the forest don’t compare to 1 bird in hand.” Luo Feng thought. “Even though Gold soul is powerful and has techniques that are helpful even for a universe knight, however, for a universe knight? How long would it take for me to get there, and which year would that be? At that level, my strength will be huge, and my perspectives would be broad. I would definitely be able to buy a good technique from the Virtual Universe Company!”
“This Nan Shen Armament 36 levels is after all Xi Luo Duo’s absolute basics learning. Back then when he created this powerful basics manual and simplified it, that was how he was able to create the Nan Shen Armament.”
“The Nan Shen Armament could be passed throughout the universe and used by many races.”
“And Xi Luo Duo, was the greatest being of the gold horn race. His basics manual should be the best one out of the entire race.”
“Even though its power is weaker.”
“To me, it’s still better than Gold souls.”
10 birds in the forest don’t compare to 1 bird in the hand.
What one cannot see ultimately isn’t realistic.
The 72 techniques of Gold souls, from the 36th level on, one had to be undying to unleash them. And he had chosen the hardest path for his golden horned beast, it would be extremely hard for it to reach undying level.
“When I reach undying level, I will naturally have my own better techniques.”
“Hence, to me, only gold souls’ first 35 techniques are useful, and these all don’t compare to the Nan shen 36 levels. Their power may be similar, but in terms of study and creativity in ways to assist the spirit weapon, it pales in comparison.”
When Luo Feng was picking his manual within the technique tower, within the doyen palace of sacred city.
Within a dark hall.
Bei Chuang sat silently there, his gaze was gloomy, almost like a volcano that was about to explode, the surrounding space was frozen.
“My dear brother, has being defeated by that human genius completely made you so dejected?” A purple armored black skinned youth walked over. His appearance was very similar to Bei Chuang, only his temperament was different. Bei Chuang was ferocious and explosive, this other youth however had an ice cold gaze and seemed proud and aloof.
Only occasionally would there be a glimpse of evil within his eyes.
“Big brother.” Bei Chuang stood up, his gaze complex and he lowered his head and said, “I lost…I, I lost before 1 billion of our sacred city people.”
“Losing this match is nothing. However, if you continue to be so dejected, then our teacher will be very disappointed.” The purple armored Bei Qiu said coldly.
“Teacher?” Bei Chuang was stunned.
Even though they were part of the doyen palace geniuses.
Their teacher however wasn’t a doyen himself. What level of position was a doyen, they would only occasionally give some pointers. And for them to actually take a student? That was incredibly hard.
“Get up.” Bei Qiu ordered, “Since you’ve lost, your big brother will have to defeat him for you!”
Bei Chuang’s eyes gleamed as he nodded. “Big brother, if you challenge him, you’ll definitely defeat him, as his strength is only just a little stronger than mine. It is far from being a match for you.”
“Hm.” Bei Qiu nodded.
Suddenly a silhouette rushed in from outside. After looking at Bei Chuang and Bei Qiu, the genius brothers, that silhouette stopped. It was one of the palace guards, he bowed respectfully, “Commander Bei Qiu, we’ve already received the news. That human genius Luo Feng has left his living quarters and entered the technique tower, it won’t be long before he comes out from there.”
“Ah?” Bei Qiu’s eyes gleamed as he said softly, “The chance has come.”
Bei Qiu became a blur and swiftly left.
“Big brother.” His younger brother Bei Chuang had guessed what he was about to do. He couldn’t help but burn with passion within, immediately shouting out and becoming another blur and rushing out.
Within the 1st level of the technique tower.
Luo Feng, Elder Si Fan Qi, Kashna, Dylan and the 5 sector lord guards sat there and rested.
Rumble… A powerful pressure covered the area, as a group of blurred silhouettes appeared in the hall, before their forms gathered. It was 12 gold horn race undyings.
“Your majesty Luo Feng, they are delivering your manual.” Elder Si Fan Qi said softly.
Luo Feng smiled and stood before walking over.
The 12 undyings had pressure throughout the area. The leader was a green skinned lady with a hoarse voice, but her energy seemed no weaker than Elder Si Fan Qi’s. “Human genius Luo Feng, we are under the doyen’s orders to deliver the manual here. We hope you will read it here and return it to us when you are done. Also, we hope that when you leave Laos world, you won’t divulge the secrets of the manual.”
“Of course.” Luo Feng nodded.
The green skinned lady flipped her hand. A 30cm thick metal book which looked almost like a box appeared, floating up towards Luo Feng.
Luo Feng nodded and received the metal book.
Nan Shen 36 levels, the words were clearly carved there.
Luo Feng immediately flipped it open and read through it. This was the basics manual Xi Luo Duo had written. Even though it was only the basics, it allowed Luo Feng to feel the great being’s endless knowledge.
“It’s actually like that.”
“Back then, Xi Luo Duo actually created the Nan Shen Armament this way.”
“I didn’t know creating a technique for oneself can be done this way.”
“Unbelievable, with little effort but great results.”
Luo Feng’s eyes gleamed the more he read, and his face was getting flushed as well. This was the 1st time in a long time that Luo Feng had a book that was suited for a gold and space spirit reader! Learning from only the best, Luo Feng could feel that great being’s endless knowledge, that powerful being that seemed to write this simply, depicting the essence of training.
Almost like the 9 universe tablet’s creator, when he was writing the time space scribbles, any one picture could easily create up to hundreds to thousands of techniques to explain.
“This is too, too…”
“It’s too worth it.”
“A manual that allowed up to a universe knight to unleash its techniques was worth only over 1.6 billion contribution points. This one is only the basics and yet it’s worth 910 hundred million contribution points, looks like it isn’t just the namesake of Xi Luo Duo. This basics manual is truly a pleasant surprise. If I had the entire set…than its price wouldn’t be simply so, definitely even more than a hundred billion points.” Luo Feng was pondering within. “Right, The innermost core manuals of the entire gold horn race, if I was the manager of the race, I wouldn’t place them in the techniques tower. These trump cards must remain secret. Xi Luo Duo’s entire set must be hidden somewhere else.”
Luo Feng was more surprised the more he read, it was simply too worth it.
In one breath, he had flipped all the way to the last page.
There was just one simple saying there on the last page.
“Spirit readers, their greatest strength is being able to control large numbers of spirit weapons. Hence, the higher the spirit energy amplitude the better. If at sector lord pinnacle level, your spirit energy amplitude cannot even reach 300, then give up on being a spirit reader, give up this manual of mine, it is not suited for you. You are also not suited to become a true spirit reader.”
