RWBK Chapter 50 Swordsmanship

After three months of practice, Rhodes has mastered all kinds of sword slashes quite proficiently. At this time, he rushed to Eleanor with a stab.

Eleanor was slightly startled, but she didn’t lose her calmness. She leaned slightly and moved her feet to avoid Rhodes’ attack.

However, her initial carelessness caused the loose clothes she was wearing to be torn open with a stab, revealing a piece of whiteness.


Rhodes did not pursue, but took a step back and said a little embarrassedly, “Do you need a change of clothes?”

Rhodes didn’t predict such an outcome. If it were him and Gion, this simple stab would have been very easily dodged, and she could have even counterattacked him. Rhodes was even thinking about how to deal with the counterattack. Unexpectedly, he suddenly heard the tearing sound of clothes…

It wasn’t intentional.

Eleanor tried her best to maintain her indifference, but she couldn’t suppress the restlessness in her heart.

As a veteran swordsman who has been practicing swordsmanship for more than 20 years, she was hit by a newbie who had just practiced the basics of swordsmanship for only three months!

If other guards saw it, she would probably end up being mocked for the rest of her life!

She couldn’t accept it at all.

Eleanor took a deep breath and said expressionlessly, “Go on.”

“You sure?”


Eleanor resisted the urge to run away and rushed up first.

Although she was careless this simple collision just now was enough to prove Rhodes’ strength. This time she attacked with 70% of her strength.

The blade cut through the air emitting the sounds of “chi” and “chi”.

Eleanor was surprised to find that under her pressure, Rhodes actually seemed to be able to avoid with ease, back and forth, her lips pursed tightly, her face became colder and colder, and she gradually channeled all of her strength.

In a blink of an eye, the two clashed dozens of times.

The speed of the two was getting faster and faster.

Normal people wouldn’t be able to see their movements. They would only see two shadows intersecting each other in the field, constantly changing their positions.

The blades were flashing, and occasionally they collide with each other and exploded. There was an amazing sound of gold and iron symphony, and sparks were scattering everywhere.

Even when she blocked his Sword Qi, the scattered energy would still destroy the open space and make it a mess, with mud flying all over the place and cracks opening on the ground.

The more she fought, the more frightened Eleanor became. In the end, she had to accept the fact that she was completely unable to suppress Rhodes by simply sparring with him.

What she found was that Rhodes’s swordsmanship foundation was extremely solid, and she couldn’t help but admire many of his responses.

This is incredible; Rhodes’ swordsmanship is not inferior to her!

“This guy, really only started practicing the basics of swordsmanship three months ago?!”

Eleanor realized that she had misunderstood, he’s actually a genius!

At this time, Rhodes felt quite relaxed. If the sparring with Gion was the hell-level difficulty, then the sparring with Eleanor could only be considered difficult, or even inferior.

A great swordsman and a swordsman are completely different from each other!

Gion’s sword stance has a feeling of making something out of nothing. It feels light and does not contain much power, but it gives Rhodes an extremely dangerous and ubiquitous feeling.

Eleanor, on the other hand, looks fancy, with many different angles and shadows, which can confuse people, but in fact, it was easily cracked by Rhodes.

Suddenly, a soft cry was suddenly heard.

Eleanor, who had just passed by his side, suddenly turned around quickly; her slender waist was like a spring, bursting out with far more than usual strength, and her muscles flowed like water.

“Secret Sword, Swallow!”

The speed of this flash was extremely fast, and it stabbed straight through the gap.

But Rhodes, who has been poked by Gion’s training sword countless times, wouldn’t have been hit by such a trick!

He just took a small step, and with a slight swing of his blade, he parried this extremely sharp sword move.

The so-called sword secret moves are a series of sword moves created by swordsmen based on their own sword styles, their own strength, and even special abilities, such as Zoro’s Three Thousand Worlds.

Sword moves cannot be imitated. In other words, even if you try to learn them, you will end up taking another path because of the differences in various details.

Just like Zoro’s three sword style, only a few can use it, because most people lack a good set of teeth, you not only must be able to withstand strong force, but also manage to speak with a sword in your mouth…

Rhodes was deeply impressed by this, she really deserves to be Gion’s guard.

At this time, Eleanor missed, and her attack stopped. At this time she was panting, looking at Rhodes, who was calm, as if nothing had happened, her face was flushed.

She have an unbreakable pride, but she couldn’t help but ask.

“Did you really just start learning the basics of swordsmanship three months ago?!”

In the end, she couldn’t bear it any longer and asked. At the same time, she couldn’t help but feel worried. If three months is all that it takes for others to catch up with more than 20 years of hard work, then she was afraid that she would be autistic.

Hearing Eleanor’s question, Rhodes blinked and said, “That’s not true…”

The first half of the sentence made Eleanor slightly relieved, but the second half of the sentence made her face darken.

“If we including last autumn, this should be my sixth month since I’ve picked up swordsmanship!”


Although the duration seems to have doubled, Eleanor still felt so sad.

She took several deep breaths in succession before she could manage to resist the urge to strike this guy down with her sword.

“How many strikes did you manage to do before breaking your stance?”

“About 70,000 or 80,000 strikes.”

Rhodes subconsciously said it with a lower tone, fearing that he will break this beautiful adjutant’s will, who he genuinely felt that she was really strong.

In fact, he has a very solid foundation now, and according to Gion’s validation, he is already qualified.


Looking at Rhodes who said these words in a very low tone, Eleanor suddenly had the urge to abandon swordsmanship and go home to become a farmer.

The requirements that Gion’s put isn’t reasonable actually. It is difficult for ordinary swordsmen to do 70,000 or 80,000 strikes without breaking their stance.

Even Eleanor herself is only a little better than this.

Without saying a word, she sorted out her torn clothes, turned around, and left in a sullen mood.

The swordsmanship spare ends after taking one point, and if they continue, it will be a life-and-death battle.

“It’s strange.”

Rhodes shook his head and continued to practice swordsmanship.

The mastery of basic swordsmanship is quite mature, and it is necessary to start the road of fusion and play, that is, the road of creating swordsmanship.

The “Lightning Sword Style · Smite” used by Rhodes before is a sword move derived from his understanding of “strike” in swordsmanship. It maximizes the explosive arm strength and the slash intensity is extremely high. It is a relatively popular sword move, but everyone uses it differently.

Eleanor’s “Secret Sword: Swallow” should be a derivative of turning around and stabbing, and there are many small details contained in it, which are relatively more complicated.

Rhodes himself doesn’t like fancy sword moves very much.

Aided by the unique power of thunder, his swordsmanship is known for its swiftness and sharpness. This is enough to kill opponents with a single sword. There is no need to spend brain cells thinking of fancy names.

“Like the eagle’s eye, the swordsman’s true pursuit is to cut off the iceberg with a single strike.”

Thinking of next year’s top battle with some emotion, Rhodes became more and more focused on his practice.

He’s still far from that level.
