After fighting for a while, the old Silver Sword had completely fallen into a disadvantageous position. Yang Kai tried to collide with it repeatedly, trying to cut it off, but in the end, not only did he not gain any advantage, he even suffered some losses.
After all, the old Silver Sword had been immersed in this level for a long time, so whether it was the sturdiness of the blade or the sharpness of the blade, it was not something Yang Kai could compare with. The repeated collisions not only did not damage the old Silver Sword, but instead caused a few small holes to appear on Yang Kai's sword body.
Seeing a good opportunity, the old Silver Sword quickly seized the initiative.
Yang Kai continued to fight as he retreated, and soon, he arrived in front of a group of Black Iron Sword and Bronze Swords. Turning his sword around, he shattered these Black Iron Sword and Bronze Sword and absorbed their power to repair himself.
Once the sword was complete, he would turn around and return.
After several attempts, the old Silver Sword cried out but was unable to do anything.
An hour later, the old Silver Sword also had some small cuts on it. Although its blade was much sturdier than Yang Kai’s, it still couldn’t withstand Yang Kai’s continuous attacks and would eventually suffer some damage.
Sensing that something was wrong, the old Silver Sword immediately retreated and rushed towards his subordinates.
How could Yang Kai not know what it was up to? It was obviously the same as what he had thought before, that it wanted to kill these low-level swords to nourish itself and repair its body.
Therefore, as soon as it moved, Yang Kai immediately rushed forward and killed the Black Iron Sword and Bronze Swords before the old Silver Sword could attack, causing its plan to fail.
The old Silver Sword became even angrier, feeling that the opponent in front of him was as cunning as a ghost.
After another two hours of fierce fighting, Yang Kai continued to fight without suffering any damage. On the other hand, the old Silver Sword’s body was in tatters, seemingly on the verge of breaking apart at any moment. It had tried countless times to kill it's subordinates to make up for its injuries, but Yang Kai had always taken action ahead of time. The few times it had succeeded, it had not gained much.
As time passed, Yang Kai’s attacks became more fierce.
Suddenly, the old silver sword staggered and almost fell to the ground.
How could Yang Kai miss such a good opportunity? His eyes immediately lit up as he rushed forward and slashed his sword towards the opening on the other party’s sword. If this strike was successful, Yang Kai had an eighty percent chance of severing this Silver Sword.
At this moment, he suddenly felt an inexplicable sense of horror, as if something extremely bad was about to happen.
Almost instinctively, Yang Kai dodged.
At the same time, the old silver sword that was about to fall to the ground suddenly stabilized itself and a strange smile appeared on its old face. It turned its blade and a sharp light shot out from its tip towards Yang Kai’s sword!
“Sword Light!” Yang Kai was shocked. How could he not know that he had fallen into this old ghost’s trap? This old bastard had been holding back and pretending he was no match for him, all for this moment.
This was the first Silver Sword he had ever encountered, and he had never known that a Silver Sword could produce such a thing.
Although he didn’t know how powerful this sword light was, he was certain that if he was struck by it, he wouldn’t have a good end.
Fortunately, Yang Kai had noticed that something was wrong and twisted his body, allowing the sword light to brush past his sword. Yang Kai clearly heard the sound of something shattering, and his heart sank. Ignoring all else, he aimed his sword towards the largest wound on the old silver sword.
With a crisp crack, the old silver sword’s face was filled with horror.
Yang Kai’s sword had almost cut him in half!
Previously, he had been pretending to be weak and had been beaten by Yang Kai. Originally, he had wanted to trick Yang Kai, but who would have thought that Yang Kai’s combat instincts would be so strong, allowing him to see through the crisis at the most critical moment and avoid the fatal blow, causing him to fall into an extremely awkward situation.
Yang Kai also fell to the ground, with a terrifying gash on his sword that was just short of breaking.
This time, both sides suffered heavy losses.
In the next instant, the two Silver Swords rose up and simultaneously rushed towards the nearby Black Iron Sword and Bronze Swords. At this moment, neither Yang Kai nor the old Silver Sword had the ability to fight with the other party, so they could only kill low-level existences to repair themselves.
A white light flashed across the sky and blocked the path of the old Silver Sword. On the surface of the sword, Lang Qingshan’s expression was cold and resolute!
Yang Kai and the old Silver Sword had been fighting for such a long time that Lang Qingshan had managed to kill two or three hundred of swords, allowing him to successfully break through to the Silver Swrod rank. At the critical moment, Lang Qingshan had come to help Yang Kai.
The old Silver Sword’s face immediately became ashen as it froze in place, not daring to move.
A moment later, Yang Kai returned.
His sword was still somewhat damaged, but after swallowing a lot of energy, there was no risk of it being damaged.
“Be careful of its Sword Light!” Yang Kai stared at the flickering light on the old silver sword and warned Lang Qingshan. This Sword Light was too powerful. If he hadn’t dodged it quickly just now, his fate wouldn’t have been any better.
“Sir should also be careful!” Lang Qingshan said before leaping up and slashing towards the old silver sword.
In this life or death crisis, the old Silver Sword was naturally unwilling to sit still and wait for death, so it immediately began fighting with Lang Qingshan while Yang Kai rushed over from the side to join the battle.
With two against one, even if the old Silver Sword could spit out sword lights, the result wouldn’t be any better. In less than a cup of tea’s time, Yang Kai found an opportunity to slash the big hole in its body.
With a crisp sound, the old silver sword broke into two!
A rich light burst out from the broken sword and rushed into Yang Kai’s body.
Yang Kai examined his body and saw that the tattered parts of his sword had quickly recovered to their original state, giving off a silver luster that was even more profound than before.
Killing an opponent of the same level was obviously a great harvest for him.
This wasn’t all. After swallowing the essence of the old Silver Sword, Yang Kai clearly felt that he had gained something else. With a slight thought, the tip of his sword began to emit a dazzling sword light!
“Haha!” Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing wildly.
Just now, when the old Silver Sword had used this kind of sword light technique, Yang Kai’s eyes had turned red with envy. He had thought that he would need to spend a little more time in order to obtain this sword light, but now his dream had come true.
Now it seemed that after swallowing the power of the old Silver Sword, he had also inherited its ability!
With this sword light, Yang Kai’s strength had increased by more than thirty percent!
“Sir, what should we do with these guys? Should we kill them all?” Lang Qingshan asked as he stared ahead.
There were originally more than a thousand swords of different grades in this mountain valley, but Lang Qingshan had killed two or three hundred of them. When Yang Kai had fought with the old Silver Sword, he had also killed many of them, but now there were only half of them left, most of which were rusted swords, some bronze swords, and only twenty or so black iron swords.
At this moment, these swords were all pushing pieces of ore towards Yang Kai, the faces on the swords all looking down and standing neatly.
Lang Qingshan stared blankly, “They seem to want to submit to you!”
Yang Kai naturally noticed this as well. It seemed that after he killed the old Silver Sword, the sword in this mountain valley no longer had the courage to resist, or rather, it was the rule of this world.
“Since you’re willing to submit, I won’t kill you,” Yang Kai swept his eyes over the crowd.
Whether it was Yang Kai or Lang Qingshan, both of them could feel that if they wanted to improve themselves, it would be best if they could kill existences on the same level as them. Killing low-level existences wouldn’t improve them much. Although there were many swords in this valley, even if they were all killed, it wouldn’t be of much help to them.
On the contrary, the ores they offered to him made Yang Kai somewhat concerned.
Before coming here, Yang Kai had discovered that there seemed to be some kind of strange energy contained in these ores that could strengthen the sword. These ores and swords were all divided into several grades, namely mixed ores, bronze ores, black iron ores, and even a small fist-sized white silver ore.
Turning the sword around, Yang Kai jumped to the front of the white silver mine and stabbed it into it. Sure enough, Yang Kai felt a stream of energy flow into his body, strengthening him slightly.
However, this kind of power was far inferior to the benefits of killing a Silver Sword, but it was still better than nothing.
Not long after, the energy in the white silver mine was completely absorbed by Yang Kai and turned into dust.
After swallowing a few more black iron ores, he found that the result was the same. Each time he swallowed ten ores, it was equivalent to killing a sword of the same grade.
However, this way, Yang Kai could understand why the old Silver Sword had left his subordinates behind. If he left them here to mine ore, he would be able to obtain a steady stream of harvests, and killing them would only be a one-time benefit. In the long run, it was naturally better to leave them here to mine.
After allowing the several hundred swords to continue mining the ores, Yang Kai and Lang Qingshan began to absorb the energy from the ores to strengthen themselves.
Five days later, Yang Kai was absorbing the energy from the ores when Lang Qingshan rushed back with a few Black Iron Swords and excitedly said, “Sir, we found a stronghold with three Silver Swords!”
Yang Kai’s eyes lit up, “Where?”
Lang Qingshan wanted to point out a direction, but unfortunately, he didn’t have the means to do so, so he could only helplessly say, “It's a day trip to the northwest!”
“How strong are the enemy forces' strength?”
Lang Qingshan’s expression became solemn as he said, “There are quite a lot of them, more than five thousand. Besides the three Silver Swords, there are at least two hundred Black Iron Swords!”
Yang Kai clicked his tongue, “There are indeed a lot of them, but a large number may not necessarily be enough. Qing Shan, take these guys with you and let’s set out!”
Lang Qingshan replied excitedly, “Yes!”
Over the past few days, Yang Kai had been absorbing the energy from the ores, but the results had been minimal. Yang Kai had discovered that if he wanted to quickly increase his strength, simply absorbing the ores would not be enough. If he really wanted to operate here for many years, it would indeed be a long term solution, but he desperately wanted to unravel the mysteries of this world and obtain the World Fruit, so how could he waste time?
Killing an existence of the same level was the fastest and most efficient method. Three Silver Swords was equivalent to several years of accumulation of ores.
