Beastmaster of the Ages - Chapter 590
Chapter 590: 590
“Finally, something new!” Ying Huo jumped onto Li Tianming’s head and peeked .
“Where’s Meow Meow?”
“It discovered a new method of sleeping underwater . It’s in the pond now . ”
“Next door waiting for its friend to come out . By the way, it seems that Lin girl is preparing to break through to the empyrean saint stage . ”
“Alright, then just the two of us will train first!”
Meow Meow and Lan Huang both had claws, so both could train in this technique too . However, one was lazy and the other playful, so they couldn’t be counted on . Ying Huo and Tianming began tackling the Ninenether Fiendgod Claw together .
“It says here this is a death phase samsara battle art . What does that mean?” Ying Huo asked curiously .
“There are two types of samsara battle arts . One is for the life phase, the life phase samsara battle art . The other is for the death phase, the death phase samsara battle art . Life phase samsara battle arts exhibit the vigor and liveliness of the life phase . They’re usually a consecutive series of attacks . Death phase samsara battle arts exhibit the deathly and extermination aspects of the death phase, and are usually single killing strikes . ”
Tianming continued, “We’re just sky saints now . Even if we grasp this technique, without samsara power, we won’t be able to bring out its full potential . Still, it’ll be stronger than empyrean battle arts . ”
“Are death phase samsara battle arts stronger than life phase samsara battle arts?” Ying Huo asked .
“Not necessarily . They’re just two categories . In terms of killing power, death phase samsara battle arts do have an edge . This is the only death phase samsara battle art here . The rest are all for the life phase,” Tianming said .
“I don’t have a jade license like you do, so can I still use it?”
“Beastmasters and their beasts are counted as one, so it’s fine . Besides, most battle arts at this level are too complex for beasts, other than you . ”
Ying Huo puffed its chest out .
“The Ninenether Fiendgod Claw only has one move to practice . This is the best battle art we can get here . I’ll look for a sword art in the future and see if we can push the Invincible Sword Body even further . ”
“Can it still be trained even past the ten thousand mark?”
“Yes . ”
“It’s not an empyrean battle art, is it?”
“Probably not . I’ll ask some seniors . ”
“By the way, why do you think so highly of this Ninenether Fiendgod Claw?”
“That’s because it suits me . It’s a claw art with a lot of versatility, and it also has a lot of power, as it’s a death phase samsara battle art . Most importantly, it’s complicated, fierce, and carries the effect of confusing the soul . The soul servant is in my left arm now . It can rush into my enemies’ weapons and carry out a soul attack . It’ll be a great combination to use with saint ki and Invincible Sword Ki when attacking . So, this is perfect for me . ”
“This is like having Little Feng by your side?” Ying Huo asked .
“Yes . When I’ve stabilized my place here, I’ll bring him over . ”
“I just knew you couldn’t forget your Little Feng . ” Ying Huo sniggered .
“Silence! Take this claw of mine!”
“Yes, master it and use it on that Lin girl!”
Tianming snapped, “Don’t say anything weird when you see Ling’er . ”
Tianming had a bad feeling .
“Seems I have to treat Lin Xiaoxiao worse . I’ll beat her up for no reason now and then, so this chicken doesn’t have something to hold over me . ”
Next door, Lin Xiaoxiao shivered .
In the end, it wasn’t easy to master the claw art . Tianming would take some time every day to cultivate in the Deepstar Path, then immediately return to training the claw .
“The core of death phase samsara battle arts is the will to transcend the life and death tribulations . That can only be grasped at the edge of life and death . ” Generally, the comfortable saint stage wasn’t somewhere that could be picked up .
But coincidentally, Tianming’s Aeonic Grandbane aged him at ten times speed! He already felt like he had been experiencing the tribulation for years . Hence, he had a lot of experience that helped in mastering the battle art .
“Transcend life and death to become a god . You need the courage to face death for a death phase battle art . Only those who are unafraid of death can become undying . ” Tianming was already feeling that eventual path, even as a seventh level sky saint .
Now, there were only the basic mysteries of the claw art to grasp . “It seems all of the geniuses of the Archaion Sect can’t match up to my Aeonic Grandbane even with all their advantages . People like me and Little Feng are the real geniuses . So… how did Lin Xiaoxiao rise from insignificance like me?”
“Wahhh, Second Brother, your baby sister’s been beaten up by someone!” Xuanyuan Xixi crawled into a house on Oldwind Street . Her face was swollen like a pig, and all her teeth had fallen out .
She didn’t even reach the house before the door opened . A young man in yellow robes hugged her, but that didn’t hide his long and narrow eyes filled with coldness . He was obviously a ruthless character .
“All my teeth are gone!” Xuanyuan Xixi was crying, her voice so loud that half the street could likely hear .
“I know, I met Fu Yonghuan just now . ”
“What did he say? He was pathetic today! He ran away even though his son was killed . ”
“Xixi, you’re already twenty-one . Please think . If Fu Yonghuan wasn’t willing to avenge his son, there’s obviously a backing he doesn’t dare offend . ”
“He doesn’t dare? Is that what he said?”
“He told me not to find trouble with Lin Feng, and especially not to drag him in . He refused to explain further . ” The young man frowned .
“Why is he acting mysterious? What identity can’t be said? What, he’s the sect master’s illegitimate son?”
“How could that be possible? However, the faction battles are about to start . So, let’s not cause problems now . We’ll look at it again after the battles . ”
“So what, I got beat up in public for nothing? How will I go out after this?” Xuanyuan Xixi was stunned .
“Can’t you endure for a while?”
“Second Brother, we’re from the Xuanyuan Clan! This is our sect! The faction lord is even our younger cousin . Why is it so hard for you to get some disciple dead?”
“Quiet . Use your head a little . I still have a dozen factions to deal with, so don’t add more things to my plate . ”
“But!” Xuanyuan Xixi was furious . “If you don’t help me, I’ll talk about how you violated your own cousin! I know where her corpse is . If it gets out, see if uncle and grandpa don’t kill you!”
“Xixi!” The young man’s expression suddenly turned fierce .
The girl froze, but she said hurriedly, “Don’t be angry . I’m just too miserable . How will I be with my friends in the future?”
“Fine fine . I’ll think of something,” the young man said helplessly .
“Don’t mention this again . ”
“Yes . ”
The next day, Tianming was cultivating when he heard a disturbance . He looked next door and saw a large amount of energy gathering . Lin Xiaoxiao’s area was like a giant mouth with an insatiable appetite that gobbled it all up .
“She’s become an empyrean saint?”
