Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The synthesis of the cultivation technique depended on its foundation reaching a certain level.
The combination of the moves within the technique would then be combined into one move一advancing into a single, more powerful move.
The seven saber techniques that Ye Xiao was currently practicing were divided into seven basic moves, enough for him to combine them into one.
“The synthesis of the saber technique requires the circulation of the soul.
It is hard to avoid being discovered by others in the library…” Ye Xiao pondered for a moment before casting his gaze outside the window.
At that moment, the sky had yet to brighten, and the entire Jianghai city was shrouded in darkness.
“If I remember correctly, there should be a river behind this library, and it’s sparsely populated.
It’s still early for me to clock in for work, so I might as well…” Ye Xiao locked the door, jumped down from the window, and left the library.
That was the first time Ye Xiao had left the library since he came to that world.
The street was very empty.
There was only a sanitation worker cleaning under the streetlights in the distance.
He seemed to be using a kind of sweeping technique from the Shaolin Martial Arts Academy in Chu province.
Ye Xiao had read about it in a book.
It was a variation of a basic staff technique.

COM A cool breeze blew over, making him feel a slight chill.
Before he could make a move, the cultivation technique activated, and spiritual energy circulated in his body, immediately shielding him from the cold.
The Internal Strength heart technique that Ye Xiao was currently practicing had two basic heart techniques.
One was called the Heart-nourishing Sutra, and the other was called the Spiritual Energy Absorption Art.
The speed of absorbing spiritual energy was sub-par, but there were too many plagiarized versions.
In a short period of time, he was unable to gather enough to upgrade to a high-grade heart technique.
He exhaled, and with a slight movement of his feet, his body began to run toward the riverside.
Ye Xiao’s speed was not considered slow.
He could probably reach the speed of a car at 80 yards.
That was because his movement technique was just ordinary.
If he could synthesize it into a high-grade movement technique, he might be able to reach a distance of a mile or even ten miles in a single step.
The scenery around him rapidly changed.
It did not take long for Ye Xiao to arrive at the riverside, which was a few miles away from the library.
The water by the riverside was turbulent, and weeds grew on both sides of the river.
Compared to a modern city, it was an exceptionally different scene.
The river was about 700 feet wide.
It was not considered big, but it was just a tributary.
It would be more appropriate to say that it was a big stream.
Nevertheless, Ye Xiao’s thin figure was no different from an ant before it.
Across the river was the largest martial arts academy in Jianghai city, which was also Ye Xiao’s alma mater.
Other than that, there were no other buildings, so no one would notice him.
Ye Xiao stopped at a shallow beach to sort out his thoughts and began to perform the first set of saber techniques.
The method of synthesizing saber techniques required the seven basic saber techniques to evolve in order.
As Ye Xiao performed the saber techniques, an invisible long saber condensed from spiritual energy appeared in his hand.
Martial artists whose cultivation had reached grade seven and above could release spiritual energy over a short distance to form their own defense or attack weapons.
It was said that when one’s cultivation had advanced to the Xiantian realm, one could completely achieve the method of releasing spiritual energy.
With a casual move, one could attack from hundreds of feet away! The speed of Ye Xiao’s technique gradually increased.
His body also emitted a ray of golden light, illuminating him as if he was a God who had descended to the mortal world.
Many mosquitoes were attracted by the light and buzzed forward one after another.
However, when they were within ten meters of Ye Xiao, they instantly scattered into dregs and fell to the ground.

COM On the ground formed a small pile of mosquito corpses.
At that moment, the area within ten meters of Ye Xiao’s body was completely covered by countless light blades, forming a glowing saber domain.
At the same time, in the Golden Book within Ye Xiao’s body, seven large words appeared on the seven pages with the basic saber techniques printed on them.
They emerged according to the characteristics of each page of the cultivation technique.
Every time Ye Xiao finished practicing a basic saber technique, a large word would form on the page the technique was written.
The moment the last word was formed, the seven pages instantly combined into one, forming an incomparably powerful and formidable cultivation technique! The Golden Book emitted a tremor and then began to quake even more forcefully as if a huge machine had been activated.
Ye Xiao could clearly feel a change occurring.
His cultivation technique’s speed before was like water flowing through a slender water pipe but at that moment, it was like a high-pressure water cannon that had already reached a stage where it could kill people.
Due to the circulation of the cultivation technique, his two basic mental cultivation techniques were also rapidly changing.
At that moment, Ye Xiao’s cultivation bottleneck, which he had not loosened for a long time, had finally been broken through and he reached the first level of the Xiantian realm.
“I’ve entered the sect!” Ye Xiao’s face lit up with joy.
He was a nonchalant person through and through, but to have such great growth and not have even the slightest fluctuation of mood一it was impossible.
He had yet to cultivate to the level of a stoic.
At that moment, Ye Xiao felt that he was no longer an ant.
Although his body had not changed size, his perception had already shot out over a hundred meters.
That feeling was like when your senses enhanced, your sight, hearing… All of his senses were raised to perceive things that were miles away.
At the same time, his spiritual energy had also become extremely powerful! “I heard that the lifespan of a grandmaster will increase by a few decades or even a hundred years.
It seems like there’s no mistaking it.
” Feeling elated, Ye Xiao looked left and right.
Seeing that there was no one around, a surge of hot-blooded battle intent surged in his heart.
He looked at the river before him and took a deep breath.
He circulated all of the spiritual energy in his body with all his might and performed the Overpowering Saber.
Golden light from the saber suddenly spread from his hand and rose into the sky.
In the blink of an eye, it grew over a thousand feet, directly cutting through the dark sky and illuminating the river.
Then, Ye Xiao’s saber landed on the river.
With a flash of golden light, an ear-shattering explosion was heard in the next moment.
The entire river was instantly split apart.
The river water that was more than 700 feet wide and 70 feet deep was forcefully split open by Ye Xiao’s saber.
The cut was a few meters wide and went straight to the bottom of the river.
Even the mud that was several feet deep at the bottom of the river was left gaping.
A slash that was half a mile long spread from one side of the riverbank to the other.
That shocking scene caused Ye Xiao to blurt out a curse.
‘Wasn’t this power a little too great? Even martial arts novels did not dare to write moves such as this!’ It was like using a knife to slice open the river.
No wonder the world respected martial artists.
That power was many times stronger than the power of modern technology.
It was also because it could be unleashed at will.
Modern technology needed all kinds of materials and factors combined to create it.
The number of times it could be used was limited.
For example, there was only one bomb and once it exploded, it would be gone.
Suddenly, Ye Xiao’s sharp perception sensed a few powerful forces rushing over.
“I’ve been discovered?” His eyebrows rose and he stomped his foot.
He immediately turned into a black shadow and left in another direction.
After his cultivation advanced to the Xiantian realm, his speed was even faster than before by at least three times more.
That meant that his speed was almost equivalent to the limit of a family car.
