Su Xiao held his sword and stretched his arm straight.
Although he did not reach the realm of the weapon becoming an extension of his arm, at the moment, Su Xiao felt something different with the sword in his hand.
It was not an easy thing to achieve that level in such a short amount of time.
Although it cost 1,000 paradise coins for just one hour, Su Xiao thought that it was worth it.
Koshiro did not teach him any moves but opened a new door for him.
“Summon Koshiro again.”
Su Xiao was in a good mood now, so he summoned Koshiro again.
[Cannot summon specified image]
[Ding, hunter permission is activated, please select the summon time.]
Su Xiao smiled. It seemed that him being a hunter had its uses here as well.
[Summoning Koshiro’s image…]
Koshiro appeared again, nodded to Su Xiao but did not reintroduce himself.
Su Xiao was a little surprised. Koshiro seemed to recognize him.
“Alright, let’s continued from where we left. You have started to perceive the sword in your hand.”
The words of Koshiro let Su Xiao understand why the Reincarnation Paradise does not summon a new copy every time.
When using the same image, it would have the memories of the previous training with the summoner, which is undoubtedly a good thing for Su Xiao.
“You are now qualified to fight with me. Come on.”
Koshiro pulled out his weapon for the first time. Su Xiao recognized that the sword was one of the O Wazamono series.
Su Xiao got up and dashed at Koshiro with his sword raised. The time was precious, and he wanted to use every minute to become stronger.
The crisp sound of the collision of swords rang. Fighting Koshiro was undoubtedly a precious experience. If it were not for the Reincarnation Paradise, Su Xiao would never have had such an opportunity.
During the battle, Su Xiao observed every movement of Koshiro, as if he was a dry sponge, he quickly absorbed the sword skills.
After an hour of continuous fighting, Su Xiao’s clothes were thoroughly soaked in sweat.
“Now rest, there are a few points you should pay attention to….”
While they were regaining their strength, Koshiro began to point out the shortcomings he had noticed in the previous fight.
Again, Koshiro held nothing back while teaching Su Xiao because he was just a mirror image.
Three hours passed quickly, but Su Xiao still wanted to fight.
“Your time is up. See you next time.”
Koshiro gradually disappeared. Su Xiao wanted to summon Koshiro again, but after seeing how he had only about 4000 paradise coins remaining, he could only give up for now.
Su Xiao took a deep breath, and the feeling that he had disappeared, which was the problem of the rapid improvement of his attributes.
Forming a fist and punching at the air, he could now finally control his strength. He had become somewhat accustomed to the sudden growth of his attributes, and now he only needed to complete the final step.
“Reincarnation Paradise, start the actual fight mode.”
[The actual fight mode consumes 10 paradise coins per minute: Yes/No】
[The actual fight mode is on, a mechanical doll will appear in thirty seconds, please prepare.]
Su Xiao’s surroundings began to change, from the original sword hall to a desert.
The Kendo Dojo was a scene automatically generated when he selected Koshiro, and the current view was the actual combat mode.
The actual combat mode would not end until Su Xiao “died.”
Of course, the death would only be in the [trial field]. He would not really die.
A strong wind blew up the yellow sand, and a silvery-white iron ball emerged from the sand.
It was not an iron ball at all, and this was the head of a mechanical doll.
Mechanical dolls made of steel drilled out of the sand, dozens of pairs of red electronic eyes were now staring at Su Xiao.
More and more mechanical dolls appeared, their number soon reaching the hundreds and surrounded Su Xiao.
[Preparation time is up, beginning combat.]
The dense formation of mechanical dolls around him caused Su Xiao to adjust his breathing while being on high alert.
Innumerable attacks came from all directions, and Su Xiao was completely enveloped by the dolls.
Suddenly, a few silver sword flashes emerged, and several of the large mechanical dolls broke apart.
Su Xiao was different from his past self. Now, both his physical attributes and his skill with the sword had improved a lot.
The metal dolls broke, the yellow sand was splashed around, and the tragic killing began…
Ten minutes later, Su Xiao was transferred to the gate of [trial field].
As soon as Su Xiao appeared, Su Xiao touched his face and sighed in relief that it was uninjured. Just now, under the attacks of the mechanical dolls, his head was completely split apart.
“It’s really realistic.”
Su Xiao left the [trial field] with a smile; although he had spent more than 4,000 paradise coins, he had reached his goal of adapting to his current body.
Not only did he reach this goal, but his sword skills had also improved.
Sword Mastery: LV.2. (passive)
Skill effect: Increasing close attack power and sword weapon proficiency by 12%.
The passive skill “Sword Mastery” had improved by one level. According to Su Xiao’s understanding, improving “Sword Mastery” was very difficult. It required a soul crystal (small) and 1000 paradise coins.
He wanted to upgrade the skills of [the Shadow of the Law]. In addition to his self-exercise, he also needed to use a soul crystal and paradise coins to upgrade them.
Only now did Su Xiao understood the value of the soul crystal. While he was fortunate enough to kill elite creatures, ha only dropped one soul crystal (small).
He looked for soul crystals in the trading market of the Reincarnation Paradise, but no one sold any.
Even worse, most contractors didn’t even know what a soul crystal is.
Therefore, the soul crystal (small) he had was obviously very precious.
Returning to his exclusive room, Su Xiao spent 100 paradise coins to expand the bedroom, bathroom, and other rooms in his exclusive space and properly arranged the purchased furniture.
Afterward, Su Xiao’s exclusive room looked completely changed, it not only became more spacious, but it was also quite luxurious.
Sitting on the soft bed he’d bought for 40 paradise coins, Su Xiao fell into his thoughts.
He now had one soul crystal (small) available, but he had two options, either upgrading an existing skill or gaining a new one.
Right now, Su Xiao did not have many combat skills besides [Qing Gang Shadow] skills and [Sword Mastery].
However, he already had developed a general way of fighting, which was to use his sword as the main weapon while supplementing it with other abilities.
This seemed like a very promising route, as there were many strong swordsmen in the various words.
In the world of One Piece, the strongest swordsman was Dracule “Hawkeye” Mihawk, who fought with one sword.
Not only was Dracule Mihawk a swordsman, but Shanks and many other prominent figures as well.
This proved that specializing in a single field of combat was very promising.
Su Xiao was not really familiar with using [Qing Gang Ying], so he was not in a hurry to acquire more skills.
As such, he could choose to upgrade either [Qing Gang Ying] or [Sword Mastery].
After hesitating for a long time, in the end, Su Xiao chose to upgrade [Sword Mastery], which would increase his strength immediately.
[Starting the upgrade. One soul crystal (small) and 1000 coins are being consumed.]
Su Xiao took a few seconds and then felt knowledge about finer details when using a blade appear in his mind.
He looked at the Sword Mastery skill again:
Sword Mastery: LV.3. (passive)
Skill effect: 14% increase in close attack power and proficiency while wielding swords.
Using the soul crystal to improve skills allowed him to directly master new knowledge without any difficulty or the need to adapt to any changes.
No wonder that soul crystals were rare, for Su Xiao to obtain one in a green treasure chest could only be considered as good luck.
But actually, it was not only good luck. Since the world was set at the nightmare difficulty, the rewards of Su Xiao killing enemies had been greatly improved. In the future, it would be quite rare to have such good fortune.
