Chapter 171: Xu Jingming’s Combat Strength Interface

Translator: CKtalon 

“It’s my turn.” Xu Jingming got up.

“Don’t be careless,” Liu Hai reminded.

“Even a lion uses its full strength when hunting a rabbit,” Xu Jingming said with a smile and walked to his parents and wife.


“Old Xu, break a leg,” Heng Fang shouted loudly.

Li Miaomiao smiled as well. “The child in my stomach and I will cheer for you.”

Li Miaomiao’s stomach was already obvious since she was four months pregnant.

“Don’t worry. I’ll do my best.” Xu Jingming also looked forward to the day his child was born. He then extended his hand and tapped, entering the combat preparation space.

Of the two areas in the preparation space, one was for Xu Jingming, and the other was for Ysarova, who was preparing her weapons and equipment.

Xu Jingming still chose protective armor, a spear, and two shields.

Shields are more effective against my arrows. Ysarova watched from afar and thought to herself, I have to find an appropriate opportunity to attack.

With Xu Jingming’s shield techniques, Ysarova lost 90% of the threat that her bow and arrow posed once he raised the two shields into a block.

Even if he uses a shield, I still have a chance of winning. Ysarova was very confident in herself, and she also began choosing weapons and equipment. As usual, she chose silver armor, bow, and quiver. Finally, she chose a rapier and carried it on her back.

Rapier? Xu Jingming saw this. It looks like she’s also proficient in sword techniques.

However, just my spearmanship should be enough to deal with her, Xu Jingming thought to himself. I have to bring my shield just in case.

In terms of weapon restraint, Xu Jingming naturally stood the greatest chance by holding two shields in hand to fight, but he was very confident in his spearmanship.

He opened his personal combat strength interface and took a look.

Lv. 5 pursues perfect control over all the cells. The more Xu Jingming cultivated, the more he realized how terrifying Lv. 5 was. His control over all the cells in his body became more and more precise, and the strength, speed, and agility his body could unleash increased rapidly.

It’s just that the evolutionary progress at Lv. 5 only becomes slower and slower. I reached Lv. 5 in March. It’s been more than two months, but my best Beam Transformation Spear Technique is only at Lv. 5 34%, Xu Jingming thought to himself. A Lv. 5 sharpshooter… is a rare opponent. I hope it will help my spearmanship!

From the looks of it, the difference between spear and shield techniques wasn’t that great. However, he had a legacy for spearmanship. The five ultimate moves Xuan left behind were much more exquisite than the shield techniques Xu Jingming had figured out by possessing Ambro.

Cultivation had its priorities. Xu Jingming focused on spearmanship and supplemented it with his shield techniques.

Whoosh. Whoosh.

When everything was ready, Xu Jingming and Ysarova flew into the combat map.


The modern city map.

Xu Jingming appeared in a residential building, walked to the window, and looked out through the edge of the curtain. With a glance, he knew where he was.

Ever since the virtual world’s launch, there had only been five combat maps: small town, city, mountain forest, snowland, and ancient battlefield. Xu Jingming was naturally very familiar with the environments after entering them repeatedly.

I’ll find the sharpshooter’s location first, Xu Jingming thought. City.

Xu Jingming outlined a three-dimensional map of the town in his mind. After he became a Perfected planetary lifeform, his brain was more than a hundred times stronger than ordinary people who hadn’t practiced the evolutionary method.


He opened the window and leaped down. When he landed, Xu Jingming carefully looked around.

I don’t see her in this large area. Xu Jingming immediately determined a portion of the safe zone in his mind and immediately moved silently.

The locations Xu Jingming moved were all routes that had a very low chance of being exposed. He could only be seen in some blind spots or in safe zones.

As he moved, the confirmed safe zones in his mind expanded.

Sharpshooters are very cautious. They hide in a spot and wait silently for the fatal strike. Xu Jingming quickly confirmed that more than 70% of the area was safe. He continued traversing carefully like an experienced hunter searching for prey.


Ysarova was indeed very careful. She was by the window in a hotel room, watching patiently through the gap in the curtains as she searched for an opportunity.

Why haven’t I seen him? Ysarova thought to herself. As long as Xu Jingming appears in my line of sight, I’ll definitely be able to find him. Could it be that he’s also camping somewhere? The area for combat will shrink as time passes, forcing the participants to concentrate their range of activity. It’s impossible for him to keep hiding.

Let’s see who can hide longer between him and me. Ysarova was extremely calm. She had plenty of patience to wait.

As a sharpshooter, she had to fire arrows stealthily to maximize her chances of winning.

She was making a bet!

The reduction in the combat area would first reduce Xu Jingming’s area.

Blk 23 ruled out; Blk 25 ruled out. Xu Jingming became even more careful. “The sharpshooter is either in the hotel, Blk 7, or Blk 10.”

Xu Jingming carefully eliminated the possibilities through exhaustion.

From vantage points, it’s more likely that she’s in the hotel. I’ll check the hotel first.

The livestream was high-strung.

“Ysarova is very patient. She has been patiently hiding in the room by that window, waiting for the best opportunity to appear,” Alan said.

“Xu Jingming has been walking on the combat map for so long. Why is he always out of Ysarova’s line of sight?” Riven Gullit was puzzled.

Alan smiled and said, “If you know geometry, you should understand. The path Xu Jingming has taken has always been very safe. He’s gradually expanding his safe zones, and we can only see him in safe zones. I’m certain that Xu Jingming’s mathematics must be very good.”

Riven Gullit’s eyes widened.

“He should’ve locked onto Ysarova’s approximate location. His first suspicion is that restaurant hotel; he has already entered.” Alan watched.

“I have to understand mathematics and geometry in combat these days?” Riven Gullit was puzzled and couldn’t help but look at Miyagawa Meishin.

Miyagawa Meishin fell silent for a moment before saying, “I’m not good at it.”

How was he not good at it? When he was in school, he spent most of his energy on swordsmanship. He could only be considered ordinary in his studies.

As Ysarova waited patiently, she carefully sensed everything. Suddenly, she instinctively sensed a threat approaching.

A sharpshooter’s first priority was calmness. This placed a high requirement on her mental fortitude!

Ysarova’s mind vaguely sensed a threat, and she didn’t doubt it at all.

Xu Jingming has confirmed my approximate location; he should be approaching. Ysarova’s heart stirred, and she didn’t hesitate anymore. She opened the window and shot into the sky. Then, she kicked the restaurant wall again, traversing a distance of 200 to 300 meters before landing on the top of the tower in the center of the television tower a distance away.

Atop the television tower that had a metal frame that was 40 to 50 centimeters long and wide, Ysarova stood there and looked down at her surroundings.

Standing at the highest point without any cover, you can’t get close at all, Ysarova thought to herself.

Huh? Xu Jingming saw an afterimage flash in the air around the corner of the hotel before leaping to the top of the television tower.

She noticed me? Xu Jingming was secretly surprised.

After reaching Lv. 5, one’s control over strength was very precise. Even with a shield and spear, he could move without making a single sound. However, Lv. 5 experts had very sharp senses.

For example, when a Lv. 10 expert spreads their will, their senses can even envelop more than half of a stellar system, Xu Jingming thought. Although a Lv. 5 expert’s senses are much weaker, the stronger her mind is, the sharper her senses will be toward some powerful lifeforms’ magnetic fields. She should’ve vaguely sensed that I’m approaching.

What a strong mind and consciousness. Xu Jingming gazed at the television tower, and with a move of his feet, he turned and disappeared.

As for Ysarova, she stood atop the tower and looked down. Her eyes were calm as she prepared to fire at any moment.


An afterimage flashed from one spot to another and charged toward the television tower at lightning speed.

It’s Xu Jingming! Ysarova immediately confirmed it. Although the figure traversed the short distance of five meters in a flash, she still managed to identify him.


With a loud bang, the entire television tower seemed to be struck by a missile as it exploded. Large chunks of concrete and steel blasted apart, and the tower began to collapse.

Huh? The tower beneath her began to collapse, and Ysarova immediately tapped her foot and leaped at a tall building opposite her.

Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!

Reinforced concrete blocks suddenly shot over from below, each at a terrifying speed of 2,000 meters per second. Ysarova could easily dodge them when on land, but in the sky, without anything to step on, Ysarova’s jumping speed was far inferior to the speed at which the concrete blocks were imbued with.

Xu Jingming unleashed his full strength and threw out three pieces of concrete and steel. He also held two pieces in his hand as he stared at Ysarova in the sky.

This is bad. Ysarova knew very well that she would definitely be shot if she continued her flight.


She instantly drew the rapier behind her and swung her sword at the nearest piece of concrete. The impact of the concrete was immense, but Ysarova used it to roll to the side and avoid the two subsequent pieces of concrete.

Whoosh! Whoosh!

Another two chunks of concrete blocks came hurtling toward Ysarova as she immediately struck out in a sorry state. When she cleaved through the concrete blocks and landed on the ground, Xu Jingming charged over like an afterimage.


Ysarova instinctively retreated.

He’s fast! He’s even faster than me! Ysarova was very surprised. She was a Lv. 5 sharpshooter, and she had spent a lot of effort on speed.

“Xu Jingming is chasing, and Ysarova is fleeing.” In the official livestream, the host and commentator watched excitedly.

The female host looked at the data automatically labeled by the virtual world and couldn’t help but exclaim in surprise, “Ysarova’s speed has reached 407 meters per second, but Xu Jingming’s speed has reached 423 meters per second! This speed is terrifying.”

I can’t escape! Ysarova felt the figure behind her continue to close in.

This is the moment! When the two were about 30 meters apart, Ysarova suddenly turned around and shot arrows. She held three arrows in one hand and had nocked them on the bowstring at the same time.

Turning around to fire naturally affected her movement speed, but she coldly watched Xu Jingming approach and released the three arrows in her hand.

Of these three arrows, some of the arrows’ feathers had been snipped off, so it wasn’t balanced.

Swish! Swish! Swish!

The three arrows tore through the air, drawing a curve as they shot at Xu Jingming.

This is my ultimate move, Winged Tri-arrow. Although Ysarova had only received a Lv. 6 legacy, she still mastered the ultimate move recorded in the legacy after years of arduous training.

Only when facing these three arrows would one realize how dangerous they were. The trajectory of the arrows wasn’t a straight line but a curve! At such close range, although releasing three arrows at the same time affected their speed, every arrow reached 4,500 meters per second! The threat of the three arrows attacking in a curve was obvious.


Xu Jingming’s charge didn’t change at all as the spear in his hand moved.

At this moment, the spear moved like water and swept the area in front of Xu Jingming, as well as the three arrows that were approaching! In order to kill Xu Jingming, the three arrows needed to be in his vicinity regardless of their trajectory.

Xu Jingming’s spear swept out like water, naturally sweeping away the three arrows.

What? Ysarova looked forward to the moment the three arrows penetrated her opponent. However, she never expected the latter to spin his spear and sweep away the three arrows like water.

This was one of the five ultimate moves Xu Jingming had been practicing—Water Style!

Water excelled in being flexible, and water flowed without form! Water could also be extremely damaging and sharp. This was a spearmanship that allowed both offense and defense.


Alongside gushing sounds of waves, the spear arrived in front of Ysarova!
