Chapter 321: Planet Number One’s Test (2)
As he chatted, Xu Jingming listened and occasionally heaped praises and commented.
They arrived at the canyon in half an hour.
“Time passes unknowingly as we chat.” Lanmo looked at the canyon in front of him and said happily, “Alright, Brother Wu Ming, it was a pleasure chatting with you. I hope we meet on Planet Number Seven.”
“You’re quite confident,” Xu Jingming said.
“One needs to be bold!” Lanmo was filled with confidence as he stepped onto a thick chain in front of him.
The chain was dark-gray in color and was about the size of Xu Jingming’s fist. It extended seemingly endlessly into the distance and led to the void in front of him.
“It’s only a chain less than 1,000 kilometers long.” Lanmo stepped on the chain and walked.
The wind in the canyon was very strong, and the violent winds made him sway. “The wind is strong! Brother Wu Ming, you have to be careful.”
“Thanks.” Xu Jingming also walked to the other chain beside him.
My physique is still limited to Blood Rain World’s standards. I’ll definitely die from falling down such a deep canyon. Xu Jingming held his spear and stepped on the chains very steadily. Then, he walked step by step.
Walking on chains was very easy for experts at the cellular level, but…
Whoosh. Whoosh. Whoosh.
The further one walked, the stronger the wind in the canyon became. The wind was irregular—sometimes strong, sometimes mild. The direction of the wind changed randomly as well!
Xu Jingming walked on the chains and used the spear in his hand for balance.
It’s much easier to walk with a three-meter-long spear as a balancing pole. Xu Jingming walked quickly.
“Oh no! Not good!” A familiar voice shouted from nearby.
Xu Jingming took a look and saw Brother Lanmo—who had said to meet him on Planet Number Seven—fall from the chain.
“I’ll get a balancing pole next time.” When Lan Mo fell, he looked at Xu Jingming on the chain not far away and immediately felt that having a balancing pole was much more convenient.
This isn’t just a balancing pole. Xu Jingming held his spear and glanced at the other chains around him.
There were also a few chains that were visible to the naked eye. There were also cosmic citizens walking carefully, and they also carried their weapons. Moreover, the first planet’s test set by the 17 top factions wouldn’t just be a test of balance.
As he walked… Although the chain was long and swayed with the wind, Xu Jingming balanced himself with the three-meter-long spear and walked as if he were walking on flat ground.
After walking for more than 100 kilometers, he suddenly saw a four-armed human on a chain in the distance holding four large scimitars and fighting three strange birds. The three birds surrounded and attacked him repeatedly, looking extremely ferocious.
Attacks from strange birds? Xu Jingming’s heart tightened.
The strange birds also noticed him and immediately let out ear-piercing screeches. This made Xu Jingming raise his guard and walk forward faster.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Another flock of strange birds flew over—there were five of them.
Every strange bird wasn’t smaller than a human after spreading their wings. Ferociously, they lunged at him.
Here it comes. Xu Jingming shook his spear and drew an arc. Although a strange bird lunged over and flapped its wings at the spear, the spear still followed a beautiful curve and stabbed into a strange bird’s eye, piercing through its brain.
It died from a single strike.
The strange bird immediately plummeted from the sky.
Pu! Pu! Pu!
Xu Jingming had noticed from watching the battle between the four-armed man and the strange birds that the strange birds’ claws and wings were invulnerable. He had to find flaws.
The wind howled, and the chains shook violently.
Xu Jingming stood on the chain, having to maintain his balance while exerting his strength to fight.
When facing an enemy, it needs to be a quick impulse while I maintain balance at all times. Xu Jingming’s spearmanship realm was high enough. A few days ago, he had fused his mind and will into every cell in his body, completely condensing them into one!
When one’s control over their body was high enough, they could borrow the force of the strike and produce instant variations, seizing the opportunity to kill the enemy instantly. It looked easy, but it actually had very high requirements for one’s realm.
After Xu Jingming killed three of the five strange birds in succession, the other birds left in fright.
Xu Jingming used his spear as a balancing pole and seized the opportunity when no strange birds were attacking to increase his speed and walk on the chains.
“Haha, here I go again. I even brought a balancing pole this time.” Lanmo had a saber on his back, but he held a professional balance pole in his hand.
Walking on the chain and using the balancing pole, he clearly found it much easier.
Why didn’t Teacher tell me in advance that I had to bring a balancing pole with me for Planet Number One’s test? He made me make an extra trip. Lanmo was a Lv. 6 cosmic lifeform after all, and he had quite good control over his body. He ran very quickly on the chains with the help of the balancing pole.
“Haha… This is the fastest way.” Lanmo ran quickly for a long time.
In the darkness deep in the canyon, three strange birds flew out. After discovering Lanmo, they quickly rushed over.
“Strange birds?” When Lanmo saw this, he immediately threw the balancing pole in his hands forward and immediately drew his saber to deal with the strange birds.
Bam! Bam! Bam!
After exchanging a few blows, although he blocked the strange birds’ attacks, he couldn’t maintain his balance and accidentally fell again.
It’s useless even with a balancing pole. Brother Wu Ming’s method doesn’t work either. What should I do? How can I clear it? As Lanmo fell, he was still thinking about his next attempt.
The solution was to charge!
Xu Jingming stepped on the chains and advanced.
Along the way, he occasionally encountered strange birds. There were at least one to as many as eight. These strange birds would incessantly attack cosmic citizens when they saw them, but Xu Jingming held his spear and slaughtered his way through!
He had to maintain his balance while engaging in the slaughter. Just like that, he walked to the other end of the long chain.
The chain was about 900 kilometers long.
I walked for a total of 18 hours and 26 minutes. Xu Jingming looked at his personal interface and confirmed the time it took to clear the chains.
A miniature wormhole appeared in front of the chains. The wormhole was only three meters in diameter, and it was dark and distorted.
I wonder how the Brother Lanmo I just met is doing. Let’s not talk about Planet Number Seven; I hope to see him on Planet Number Five. Xu Jingming then walked into the miniature wormhole.
On the endless chain, Lanmo held his two sabers and plummeted again as he fought the strange birds.
When he fell, his eyes were blank. Am I going to be stuck on Planet Number One forever?
I relied on myself to become a Lv. 6 cosmic lifeform, and even my father praised me. My actual combat bonus is 8×! A chain can stop me? Lanmo found it unbelievable and refused to believe it.
It’s fine. I have a year! His eyes were filled with determination as he fell into the endless darkness of the canyon.
Xu Jingming walked out of the miniature wormhole and looked at a new planet in front of him.
There were some strange creatures on this vast planet at a glance! These creatures resembled large mantises and large beetles. At the very least, Xu Jingming saw six different creatures at a glance.
Arthropods. Xu Jingming immediately confirmed it.
The Arthropods were a very terrifying race in the universe. In the past, they had posed a huge threat to cosmic humans. Of course, the Arthropods were now completely under the control of humans. They were one of the ‘military forces’ of cosmic humans.
Planet Number Two is an Arthropod planet? Xu Jingming looked around.
The area he was in was the exit of the miniature wormhole. It was covered in a protective shield, preventing the Arthropods from approaching.
Outside the protective shield, Arthropods could be seen from afar.
Lonely Arthropods were gnawing at the rocks, and more than ten Arthropods advanced together. Further away, a cosmic citizen was fighting five Arthropods.
The commotion of the battle quickly attracted more Arthropods. In just ten seconds, more than 100 Arthropods swarmed and surrounded the cosmic citizen, tearing him to pieces.
How tragic. Xu Jingming’s pupils constricted.
Being torn to pieces in the virtual world felt almost realistic. It didn’t feel good.
Xu Jingming didn’t watch further and opened his personal interface. Let’s check the tests on Planet Number Two.
