Chapter 738 - 733: Soldier Of War Essence Of War

ure astral-graded armaments and armors. ” There was a hint of frustration in his tone, clearly he felt this was an unfair circumstance. 

”There ’s no Mystic Ascendants here? ” Wei Wuyin was expecting this, but if this army had Ascended beings at the Second Stage standard, it would only make sense that the Nexus Battlefield had Ascended as well. 

”Haha, you wish. What lower-leveled Ascended has the means to enter here? ” Guan Yu laughed freely, truly finding Wei Wuyin ’s comment hilarious. 

”…Lower-leveled Ascended? ” Wei Wuyin questioned. He wasn ’t familiar with the standard of Guan Yu, unsure if it rivaled Wang Yutian ’s world view or not. After all, Wang Yutian considered Mystic Star Phase cultivators as false Ascended. In fact, the vast majority of elite cultivators within the Grand Cyclic Stellar Region and Jing Jiu ’s own stellar region had very similar standards. 

”Yeah, lower-leveled Ascended. Those at the first through third stage of the Mystic Ascendant Realm. Don ’t tell me you don ’t know of them either? ” Guan Yu was skeptical. Was Wei Wuyin some country bumpkin out in the backwater sticks or something? But that didn ’t make sense; all those who had the bestowed title of Soldier of War, earning the qualifications of reaching the Nexus Battlefield, were all top-tier warriors of the finest quality with established backgrounds.

Not only did these Soldiers of War have to earn 100 War Souls in the Battlefield, but they also needed at least three premium merits awarded to them. Typically, this was only accomplished by soldiers who ’ve survived the Battlefield multiple times in outstanding fashion. 

Wei Wuyin inquired further on this subject of lower-leveled Ascended and learned exactly why they were unable to earn the qualifications to enter in Guan Yu ’s opinion. According to Guan Yu, Ascended required far more War Souls and merits to earn the qualifications to be here. They needed to earn 10,000 War Souls and seven premium merits. While it was technically easier to acquire as an Ascended, since they earned nothing from killing mortals, they had to kill those of their cultivation base. 

That was extremely difficult when Ascended were deployed in a balanced fashion, unlike the loose limitations for mortal deployment. If three Demi-Mortal Lords are deployed for one army, then three Demi-Mortal Lords must be deployed by every other army to engage with them. The same standard applies for Mystic Star and Soul of Mysticism Phase cultivators. 

However, mortal armies are based on the number of Ascended soldiers deployed, and have a varied range. For every Demi-Mortal Lord, a Battalion, a unit numbering 300 to 1,000 soldiers, can be deployed freely. Races can choose how many they deploy. For every Soul of Mysticism, a Company can be deployed.

When Wei Wuyin read Jing Jiu ’s memories, he learned of the titans ’ civil conflicts and birth rate issues. So they often deployed close to the minimum, while humans deployed the maximum all the time. 

This wasn ’t reflective of racial strength differences, as quantity of mortals mattered little to the grand scheme of things, and true experts lived for ten or even tens of thousands of years, while even the longest natural lifespan of an Astral Core Realm is roughly two thousand years. 

Furthermore, he learned that Guan Yu considered Mystic Star Phase cultivators as genuine Ascended. His response was quite interesting in fact.

”Why wouldn ’t I? If the Battlefield considers them Ascended, why would I call them mortals? I ’m not so ignorant as to consider my understanding above the being that built this, all of this! ” He gestured reverently towards the world, yet was once again embarrassed after remembering Wei Wuyin was unable to see. 

This, however, confirmed Wei Wuyin ’s theory that the concept of false and genuine Ascended stemmed from the cultivation society itself and its relative upbringing. He wondered if beings beyond the Mystic Ascendant Realm viewed those who dismissed their first stage as ignorant or laughable.

Eventually, they went back to the main topic, discussing the Nexus Battlefield. To begin with, conjuring armaments! He was deeply curious about this ability, including how he obtained this armor and how he could keep it for himself.

”Oh? You haven ’t felt it? ” Guan Yu asked curiously.

Wei Wuyin frowned, ”Felt what? ” 

Guan Yu fell silent for a moment, as if looking at Wei Wuyin strangely, but recalled something. ”Right, you ’re blind AND a mortal being. You are unable to see it, but there ’s numerous motes of white light surrounding you that are traveling alongside you. It ’s why I could tell you were new because they were unused. These lights are called Essence of War. They can be melded into any armament, armor, or item you can think of. However, its limited to only form and always at the peak astral-grade in quality.

”Your current armor is defaultly given, but you can add metallic padding or pauldrons, even straps or other designs if you wish, or outright outfit yourself in heavy metallic armor. Just think of an item in your mind and focus on your immediate surroundings to conjure it. ” 

Wei Wuyin was immediately intrigued. He thought for a moment and acted in accordance with Guan Yu ’s instructions. 

Dzzzt! 

Suddenly, a faint buzz resounded. Then, Wei Wuyin felt a weight in his hand. A saber that resembled zhanmadao saber with a slightly more prominent curvature of its spine leading to its peak edge. When the saber met his hand, he felt a strange resonance within that caused it to tremble ever-so-slightly.

Shiiiing!

A saber howl roared!
