After a moment in silent, Ezekiel added, “Whether it be the Invincible Body Siddhi or Murderous Energy, they were created by figures who existed prior to the era of the Prince of Orchid Mountain. There were no records of them in the ancient text. Though the Zaydens were a powerful and influential family, records were few and far in between. He did not know the specifics either.”
Taking a deep breath, Ezekiel continued, “If James truly received the inheritance of the figures of a millennium ago, he must have Crucifier on him…”
“Crucifier?” Lucjan was lost in thought.
He knew that James had some silver needles which he frequently used, but he did not pay much attention to them.
He asked, “What is Crucifier?”
“I’m not sure either. After all, I’ve only seen bits and pieces of its information in my family’s ancient text. I only know that it can bring the dead back to life.”
Upon hearing this, Lucjan looked at James, who was desperately trying to avoid the projectiles of the Thousand-Machinery Formation. Then, a hint of greed and avarice flashed across his face.
“I never expected him to have so many treasures in his possession. No, I can’t allow him to die just yet. I’ll have to interrogate him about the treasures he has.”
At that moment, a disciple of the Gu Sect walked over to them with a sword and knelt, saying, “Sir, this is James’ weapon…”
Lucjan took the Blade of Justice and waved it, “This is a good sword.”
Ezekiel said, “Let me see…”
Lucjan gave him the sword.
Upon scrutinizing the Blade of Justice, a bright smile crept up on Ezekiel’s face, and he said, “T-This is the Primordial Sword forged by King Quavon!”
“Primordial Sword? Is it powerful?” Lucjan asked.
“Of course!” Ezekiel explained, “This sword is forged with Ascenium Steel and possesses unbelievable powers. In my family’s ancient text, it is said that this sword comes with the First Sword Art. Once you comprehend the First Sword Art, the true power of the Primordial Sword will be unleashed. For example, you can easily defeat a ninth-rank grandmaster with this sword as an eighth-rank grandmaster.”
Upon hearing this, Lucjan’s face lit up. “Really?”
Ezekiel said, “This information was passed down by my ancestors. I don’t know the specifics myself.”
“In that case, where is the First Sword Art?”
“The First Sword Art disappeared alongside King Quavon’s demise. If I’m not mistaken, it should be inside King Quavon’s Mausoleum.”
Upon hearing this, an idea emerged in Lucjan’s mind. He planned to head to King Quavon’s Mausoleum and search for the First Sword Art after resolving this matter.
Then, the two began discussing the history of a millennium ago.
Meanwhile, James was trapped in the Thousand-Machinery Formation.
The traps were simply too numerous. Even though James was temporarily unscathed due to the Invincible Body Siddhi, he was in a tough spot. If not for the Invincible Body Siddhi, he would not even have survived this long.
At that moment, the steel wires underwent some changes.
They began crossing and intersecting and created a steel web. As the gap was only a few centimeters apart, James could not evade the attack. Backed into a corner, he catalyzed True Energy and struck.
Majestic True Heavenly Energy struck the steel web. However, nothing came out of it. Even though James ‘True Energy was terrifyingly strong, it could not destroy the steel web.
James grabbed a steel wire in desperation. However, his hand was instantly pierced. No matter how hard he tried tugging at the web, it simply would not budge. He was gradually confined to a small limited space. In the end, he was trapped.
Seeing this, he performed the Invincible Body Siddhi to its fullest extent to prevent the steel web from trapping him in place.
