Volume 1 Chapter 82: Shura Emperor Sword Broken Piece[Four Corners Star Formation]: Current Level: LV1, Highest Level: LV10, SP required to upgrade to LV2: 300. Using the power of the battle soul to sweep the surroundings, instantly forming a formation of destruction in a 10 meter radius around yourself. The raging battle soul power will deal devastating damage towards all targets within the formation. Damage is equal to 300% of regular damage, Critical Hit Rate+5%, 100% chance to trigger knock back, MP Consumption: 100, Cooldown Time: 60 secs. [Battle Soul Possession]: Current Level: LV1, Highest Level: LV5, SP required to upgrade to LV2: 2000. Igniting the battle soul, releasing all of your strength causing your next attack to possess the most extreme destructive power. Effect: Damage+50% for next attack, MP Consumption: 50, Cooldown Time: 30 secs.
At the same time as the new class was added it also unlocked 5 whole abilities. One passive, four active. Truly the class originating from War God, every skill is so powerful that they make people’s eyes pop. War God Technique can increase strength and attack with the upgrading of his level, moreover the max level of this War God Technique is LV10, if it reaches max level then its effect will definitely be cheat level, even not below the ancient battle technique “Heaven Wind Technique” that he possesses. Ling Tian Slash is a powerful single target attack, under a LV1 state its lethality is already superior to the max level Full Power Strike. Ling Tian Burst is a group attack, even though under a LV1 state its power is inferior to a max level Crescent Slash, the number of attack targets is not limited, moreover the initial area is already able to envelop the frontal 5 meter area. Four Corners Star Formation is a powerful AOE attack. It is also the battle soul profession’s unique skill. At the initial state it is already able to envelop a 10 meter area around him, the damage is not inferior to Shooting Soaring Cloud. If it reaches max level, how terrifying the damage would be is practically unimaginable. The last skill “Battle Soul Possession”… Imagine it, Soul Sacrifice matched with Battle Soul Possession and then an ultimate skill, how terrifying of a damage value would that deal. If a critical hit also appears, then it might even be able to insta-kill a Lord boss of the same level!
The battle soul profession’s powerfulness made Ling Chen amazed, but at the same time the stronger the profession, the harder its class skills are to upgrade.
The upgrade points for the three attack skills are a lot greater compared to the common skill upgrade points of regular classes and the level cap of the 3 skills are all as high as LV10. Who knows how many skill points need to be expended to reach max level. War God Technique and Battle Soul Possession both require SP in the thousands to upgrade from the initial level to LV2!
When Ling Chen just finished looking through all of the battle soul profession’s skills, a notification sound suddenly rose up beside his ears:
“Ding… Under the effect of your pet ‘Holy Spirit Beast’ Sasha Grey’s innate skill ‘Holy Spirit Gift’ your skills ‘War God Technique ‘, ‘Ling Tian Slash’, ‘Ling Tian Burst’, ‘Four Corners Star Formation’, ‘Battle Soul Possession’ have all upgraded to LV2.” (TL: Yeah, someone suggested that in the “Others” of the poll and I couldn’t resist, don’t worry, it’s just for fun. I had a good laugh, thank you whoever suggested this. Btw, don’t search her up unless you’re 18+… at least don’t watch any videos.)[War God Technique]: Current Level: LV2, Highest Level, LV10, SP required to upgrade to LV3: 2000. Powerful battle technique originating from War God’s soul force, after practise can greatly increase personal attack strength permanently. Effect: Strength increases by 2*X points, physical attack strength increased by 5*X (X=Current level). [Ling Tian Slash]: Current Level: LV2, Highest Level, LV10, SP required to upgrade to LV3: 400. Using the weapon in the hand to attack a single enemy, suddenly releasing the strength of the battle soul the instant you hit the enemy dealing devastating damage towards the opponent. Effect: Single target attack, damage is equal to 210% of regular attacks, critical hit chance+5%, 5% chance of stunning for 3-5 seconds, very big chance of pushing back the target, MP Consumption: 15, Cooldown Time: 0. [Ling Tian Burst]: Current Level: LV2, Highest Level, LV10, SP required to upgrade to LV3: 300. Pouring the battle soul power into the weapon, instantly releasing it when slashing forward creating a power explosion in a small area, attacking all targets in a 5 meter area in front, damage is equal to 110% of regular attacks, MP Consumption: 20, Cooldown Time: 0.
Towards skills gained in the future, Xiao Hui’s “Holy Spirit Gift” will directly take effect directly upgrading all of Ling Chen’s battle soul skills to LV2. The power the the three upgraded attack skills all increased, the strength value and attack strength added by War God Technique greatly increased… And Battle Soul Possession, even though the SP required to upgrade it is the most, upgrading one time made its effect increase by a whole fold!
“Very good, I can sense that you have already successfully inherited the power that I left behind. I am very gratified. I hope my power can let you become another ‘War God’, I also believe that with you talent you can grow the strength that I left behind to a level that surpasses me.”
The old voice slowly died away, the figure floating above the metal chest also became a lot fainter. Right when Ling Chen thought that the last of War God’s soul was about to fade away, another item slowly floated out from within the metal chest. This is a black coloured item, the shape is irregular, at the same time the old voice once again rose up…
“Human that has inherited my strength, lastly, I have an item to give you… This is an item that has no use towards you… and has no use towards anybody, but is my most important item in my life. I hope that you can take good care of it in my place… Even though it really can’t do anything to help you and could instead bring calamity to you.”
In War God’s voice that black item slowly floated to the front of Ling Chen. Ling Chen extended his arms grabbing it in his hands… The instant it entered his hands, an unexpected heavy weight overcame him. Ling Chen’s two arms abruptly dropped, with a “Bam” this black item that just touched his hands has already fallen onto the ground, even smashing a deep hole in the ground.
So heavy… What is this! Ling Chen was astonished, when it just entered his hands the heavy feeling beyond expectations made him simply unable to hold it steadily. Ling Chen crouched down, examining this black item on the ground. Only when he got close by did he notice that it was not a pure black colour. The black colour was also covered with a layer of dark red, this kind of heavy dark red made him think of the colour of high density blood after it’s dried. (TL: High density as in lots of red blood cells… I think at least.)
The form of its left and right sides are straight, hiding a sharpness, the top and bottom parts are a slight saw shape, very irregular… At first glance, it’s like one of the parts of the sword blade of a giant sword after being broken into many pieces.
Completely useless towards me, but is War God’s most valuable treasure in his life… What could this be?[Shura Emperor Sword Broken Piece 2]: …
Ling Chen: “!!!!”
“Hehe, as you see, this is a portion of the sword blade of a sword after it’s been broken. The sword that it belongs to is called “Shura Emperor Sword’ you definitely have not heard of this name before. At this day there also shouldn’t be that many people that still remember this name. This sword was once the strongest sword ever that shook the world, the amount of life that has died from it… is at a point that you simply cannot imagine. The reason it was able to grow to become the strongest sword, is because it drank too much, too much blood. That number is enough to make true gods deeply tremble. And this strongest sword, belongs to history’s strongest person. His strength exceeds your imagination. Even though the him of that time could already no longer be called human, but his nature was actually still a human… His name was… Shura.”
Ling Chen: “…”
“Now the number of people that still remember the name Shura are already very few, people that know that he used the “Shura Emperor Sword” to massacre the world are even fewer. Shura perished 10 thousand years ago, Shura Emperor Sword also perished with him, never to reappear again. I spent my entire life, going through untold hardships before finding one of the pieces of the Shura Emperor Sword… This is also the only item I’ve obtained that comes from Shura. Even though… what Shura brought to the world was great disaster and he was thousands of millions of times scarier than the devil, but the strength that he possessed was something that even gods feared. That is truly being strong… Strength enough to look down on the world and defy the heavens! That is also the goal of me this martial arts extremist that I’ve longed for even until death. But sadly, until the day that I died, the distance between me and him was still that of night and day. I may have been called ‘War God’, but compared to Shura I couldn’t even be considered a firefly under the sun and moon. I have always been stashing this broken piece, never letting other people know and also not daring to let other people know. If it is accidently known by the moon god clan, it might bring about the punishment of destruction. But I would rather risk bearing the danger of being punished by the Moon God than throw it away… Because it is the Shura Emperor Sword of the past. Shura is the person that I most admired in my life, at the same time… he is also my ancestor…”
Ancestor? This War God whose name shook all of Forgotten World in the past… Is actually the descendant of that Shura?
“To chase after the pinnacle that my ancestor once reached, I was infatuated with the martial path my entire life. From small I left my family, at middle age I had already forgotten who my parents even were, I especially wouldn’t have descendants. This piece of ancestor’s sword was the only mental support in my life, even if I lost my life I wouldn’t abandon it… And the only one who I can entrust it with, is also only you. Ancestor’s sword has already been destroyed, never to reappear again. I hope the you who has inherited my strength can take care of it for me, do not let even the last trace of ancestor having existed in this world vanish…”
“I understand.” Even though he knows that this is just the spirit voice left behind by War God and no matter what Ling Chen says he will not hear it, he still promised aloud. He then put away the Shura Emperor Sword’s broken piece into his bag… The Shura Emperor Sword, the once strongest sword, and I have consecutively obtained two pieces of this sword’s broken pieces in a short period of time.
Is this also good luck brought by Xiao Hui.
But what made Ling Chen astonished is that the last of War God’s soul seems to still have an active consciousness, actually understanding his words and responding: “Very good, thank you for willingly risking the danger of being punished by the moon god clan and safekeeping it for me… My remaining time is already very little, let me send you away now. I believe that one day Forgotten Continent will tremble because of you.”
War God’s voice became completely fuzzy, a mass of light green light wrapped Ling Chen’s body, carrying him and slowly disappearing in this space.
Right at the instant when Ling Chen and War God’s silhouette were about to disappear at virtually the same time, a confused and shaky voice suddenly travelling into his ears: “Wait.. This power on your body…”
The space switched, Ling Chen finally completely left War God’s trial ground, what travelled into his ears seemed to be War God’s voice, but it also seemed to be just an illusion.
