Chapter 407: Meteor ball training complete!
In a private room, Xia Fei was currently pitting himself against 1286 meteors. These colorful balls of light were ever changing in size, dimming and glowing erratically. Sometimes, they would stop in front of Xia Fei as if they were goading him, and when Xia Fei was about to try and catch them, they would get in a whirlwind of movements, rapidly distancing themselves from Xia Fei, moving so irregularly and evasively.
After he reached the Legendary rank, Xia Fei’s speed had essentially more than tripled from before. This also caused his meteor ball training to level up abruptly, and in just twenty-over days since, Xia Fei had managed to level up his training from level 2 to 5! The crowded meteors dancing busily in mid-air was the best evidence of this.
Just having fast speed was not enough to conquer these meteors; dexterity in both physical and mental reaction, a nimble and swift physical agility and positioning were also crucial, and this included superhuman analytical judgment.
It must be said that this meteor ball training provided a comprehensive improvement in both body and mind. Compared to before, Xia Fei’s Crafty Approach was even more unbelievable. Not only was he moving swiftly, he was even able to twist and bend his body in a way that defied what was humanly possible, so much so that even Phantom was left breathless when he saw it.
Xia Fei’s Crafty Approach originated from the Assassin Sect, yet he was currently many times more accomplished in it that he had even created his own version of the technique! From a certain sense, it would not be an exaggeration to call Xia Fei’s new Sly Thrust a pioneer technique of its kind!
Compared to Crafty Approach from the Assassin Sect, Xia Fei’s Sly Thrust was like a super version. Those familiar with the technique might be able to see a vague shadow Sly Thrust, but after Xia Fei’s alterations, his present technique was already vastly different from its origin. In fact, it could even be considered as a rebirth of the original technique!
If the Assassin Sect’s Crafty Approach was a piece of land, then Xia Fei’s Sly Thrust was more like a verdant forest which had grown out of that piece of land! By absorbing the nutrients provided from Sly Thrust, synthesizing with the light given off by the meteor ball training, and the careful nurturing that Xia Fei had given it, a completely new, enhanced, and superior technique was born!
Xia Fei’s new Crafty Approach was exceptional, but it was not something anyone could learn. This was due to the fact that the foundational requirement for the technique was far too high; aside from Xia Fei, it was most likely impossible for anyone else to replicate it successfully.
The last of all 1286 meteors had finally been caught, and the level 5 meteor ball training announced its completion!
Xia Fei used his sleeve to wipe sweat off his head as he waited for the level 6 meteor ball training to begin.
Phantom was rejoicing from the sidelines. “Xia Fei, you can totally give your Sly Thrust technique a new name and tell the people you’ve managed to come up with a new martial arts technique!”
Xia Fei nodded as he softly replied, “There’s no need for all that. I have no intention of passing on this new martial arts technique to anyone else, anyway.”
Phantom shook his head. “How could you say that? This martial arts technique is at least considered Heaven tier, maybe even reaching the Space tier. Since you’re the originator of this martial arts technique, then you can very well be recognized as grandmaster of a founding sect! The position a grandmaster holds is very different from that of a common warrior.”
“Grandmaster?” Xia Fei said to himself. “What use is that? A name isn’t going to increase my combat strength. Even if I’m not a grandmaster, people who need to die will still die.”
‘Confident? Bully? Arrogant?’
Phantom stroked his chin as he wondered. Xia Fei’s temperament had changed quite a bit from before, and that cold murderous aura he had was becoming more and more concentrated, while his self-confidence had also increased many times over.
After waiting for several minutes and the level 6 had not yet begun, Xia Fei pondered if perhaps the meteor ball device had run out of power. This device was powered by a Heart of Spirit, and Xia Fei had fitted in a Purple Heart of Spirit. Logically speaking, it should not run out of juice so soon.
He got near and suddenly realized that there were a few extra rows of small words on the box, meaning that he had unknowingly completed the meteor ball training. He could not help but feel insatiated.
Phantom chuckled. “Your Sly Thrust has already reached the realms of a grandmaster, and the meteor ball has already been used to its limit. Perhaps that’s all the ancient civilization technology can help you till.”
Xia Fei nodded, stepping out from the room without another word.
“Crafty Approach is the first martial arts technique you’ve completed cultivation of, and now it’s been brought to an even higher realm with the help of the meteor ball. As such, it is evident that, be it in terms of rank or martial arts technique, there’s no set limit on the state that either realm can reach,” Phantom said.
Xia Fei agreed. “I’ve been thinking about this matter as well; the end of martial arts studies seems to be related to a warrior’s standing. You said before that if my Crafty Approach transforms, I would be considered a top expert even in the Assassin Sect, so what about now, after I got the meteor ball?”
Phantom pondered the question. “After obtaining the meteor ball, you managed to improve the Sly Thrust technique to a state that surpasses the standards of past and present masters in the Assassin Sect. Even the strongest Crafty Approach practitioner from the sect can only be considered inferior to you.”

Xia Fei then pressed on. “And what’s the reason for that? Isn’t it because the meteor ball is a training device created by the ancient civilization, and the ancient civilization’s technology and martial arts standard far surpasses the Pan-human Alliance of today? That’s why I have a chance of improving my martial arts technique training beyond that of the Alliance’s standard. There’s also my speed special ability; you’ve previously mentioned that it’s the hardest to train and cultivate out of all possible abilities and that the moment I reach the Legendary rank, I will be able to look upon the entire Alliance with contempt.
