One punch out.
Garen quietly felt the flow, changes, and the regularity of his own fist.
Retracting his fist again, with a swish, he struck an Axe hand blow.
He was studying a Mech combat technique, the special skill from the
Crouched Eagle Talon course. The Willpower combat technique of the Eagle
Stream learned in the Outer Courtyard could not be compared to the one
from the Inner Courtyard. Because of that, Professor Van Doe specially
taught him a type of powerful skill —— Black Wind, which could allow
the Crouched Eagle Talon’s Willpower to burst forth for a short while.
This skill was the result of Van Doe’s decades of research, developing
the powerful skill of Crouched Eagle Talon’s Willpower to the greatest
extent. It could burst out the most powerful Willpower force through both
arms in an instant. The principle was very complicated and one would need
to feel and distinguish the finest vibration regularities and frequency
of change to trigger an intricate chain reaction.
Garen punched out once again and made an exploding air blast in the air,
like a firecracker.
“Mech combat techniques are divided into four steps: footwork,
technique, killing move, and resonance skill. Footwork can influence the
speed of evasion, et cetera. Technique is a conventional battle mode
while resonating skill is a special battle trick. These are the strongest
points of a pilot.”
“Unfortunately, it is impossible to have resonance skill without owning
one’s own Mech. Without resonance skill, it is impossible to defeat
Garen knew that the feud between him and Fila was deep-seated. Even if he
did not take any action, he himself would make his move. This was an
issue of sooner or later.
“The main problem now is to build my own personal Mech, so the energy
machinist ability will be crucial… I can extract the materials by
myself and even own a small-scale concentrated processing plant.”
Garen practiced the Mech combat technique while alternating between one
hand and the other. The depth and precision of Black Wind were far beyond
his imagination. Each move had to be accurate to a certain extent, or a
careless, subtle error would lead to the emergence of chain errors and in
the end, it would not be shaped.
The strength and uniqueness of this Killing Move also gave him great
inspiration. At this time, he also integrated it into his own concept of
“From the task I’ve agreed upon with Anda, I will be able to obtain
Lamda Alloy. This type of material is used to make the main body of the
Mech. The index is excellent in all aspects, and it can be considered
within the upper-middle tier. After that, it’s the engine skill,
kinetic frames system, and Willpower connection system. The main things
are the material and engine. Everything else can be bought with money.”
Garen had worked it out. The most important thing in making his own Mech
was the material and engine skill, to build up the main body of the shelf
first before anything else.
These precious materials were not allowed to be sold on the market. As a
medium-high-end Mech material, a type of metal like Lamda was a scarce
resource that could not be purchased at all. Everyone would keep it in
their own hands.
If you wanted to buy, it would be calculated in terms of millions of
As he experimented with the subtle manipulation of Black Wind, Garen was
also constantly pondering the next arrangements within his heart.
Currently, he was aiming to upgrade his Living Secret Technique. But
before the needed Red Peacock Stone arrived, he could only start with his
personal Mech first. Regarding the area of energy machinist, he could
only use his potential points for the time being. With a few points, he
could only be considered as beginner level since he had not even reached
Willpower Level One. The training method of the energy machinist appeared
to be of high level. Without wanting to waste potential points, Garen
intended to see whether the advancement of the Living Secret Technique
could enhance this Willpower training method together.
If it could be done together, it would save a lot more resources and
With the advancement of the Living Secret Technique, attaining the
upgrade of the primary Crouched Eagle Talon, unnamed Willpower and the
sub-Willpower of the energy machinist simultaneously and enhancing all
three would be of exceptional value to him.
As for the extra potential points, he intended to use all of them to
improve his body constitution and the various professional knowledge
systems needed in the other aspects of being an energy machinist.
Suddenly, Garen bellowed as his arms trembled, sending out a black,
visible flow of air. It flew in all directions and the black gas vanished
within a distance of less than a meter.
However, Garen did not control it well and it almost met him.
Quickly moving sideways, he gave way to the oncoming Black Wind, but his
clothes inevitably came into contact with it.
The black training clothes that he had originally put on were instantly
destroyed into powdery grains that sprinkled on the ground. A metal
button had also been turned into powder.
“Terrific!” Garen narrowed his eyes. “What kind of energy is this?
Even metal alloys are so easily destroyed.”
Although the skill he displayed was through the steps given by Teacher
Van Doe, he had not figured out the specific principles himself. After
all, this thing was only produced by professors of high-end intellect
such as Van Doe after decades of research. Furthermore, the scientific
and technological level of this world far exceeded those of other worlds
that Garen had experienced. For this kind of annihilating phenomenon,
Garen was not very clear about it.
Seeing this scene, the initial him who had not been very invested into
this skill was now suddenly full of interest in it.
“That kind of energy seems to be very powerful. Try again!”
Garen made an open stance and slowly started to concentrate on following
Teacher Van Doe’s instructional steps. Bit by bit, he combined the
vibrations, Willpower frequency and a certain amount of mental will
guidance. Spirit, Willpower, blood flow and his own movements; these four
parts began to gradually combine and condense into a form of invisible
symbols and vortexes. These symbol vortexes began to further assemble and
formed little pyramids.
A total number of three invisible pyramids, arranged in a triangle, was
suspended in front of Garen.
A subtle black air flow appeared and the three pyramids collapsed at the
same time, turning into a black wind, blowing towards the front sector in
a fan-shaped cone.
It was billowed in an area of more than a meter before the black wind
Garen opened his mouth and suddenly, his vision went black and his body
staggered, nearly falling to the ground. Luckily, he quickly reached out
and grabbed the chair by his side.
“What a great exhaustion..!” he was secretly shocked. “With my
current body constitution and the internal Level Five Willpower, I was
actually unable to cope with it after releasing the skill twice. My body
was drained and the blood loss is terrible!”
Only after a few minutes of rest did Garen ease back and recover his
strength. He wanted to try to release Black Wind once more but
unfortunately, without enough blood and spirit, there was no way to use
this skill anymore.
In one full day, all of his interest was captured by this skill taught by
Professor Van Doe. He began to diligently study it, trying to find out
what the mystery of this skill was.
The second floor of the villa
Van Doe was holding a tobacco pipe and slowly smoking it. From time to
time, smoke rings were puffed out through his nostrils. They were
well-formed, one linked to another, and they gave off a slight
satisfaction. Sitting alone in the study room, there was a
semi-transparent circular screen on his desk. The image of another person
was displayed on it. He was a white-haired old man dressed meticulously
in a black suit.
“Still studying the structure of Glass Fire?” Van Doe asked casually.
“Isn’t it the same as you wanting to further your Annihilating
Wind?” the old man in the suit answered lightly. “These three stages
of Black Wind, Death Wind, and Annihilating Wind, your Crouched Eagle
Talon should have reached the peak of the Two-Moon level, right?”
Van Doe smiled.
“It’s a pity… If Crouched Eagle Talon can break through to Level
Six and you use it to promote Annihilating Wind, the power will surely
rise to a point of terror. The compatibility of the two is really too
“You still haven’t given up after so many years, otherwise you could
have reached the seventh Non-falling level,” the old man in the suit
said calmly. “In those years you claimed to be invincible within two
meters, the close combat of Annihilating Wind defeated the whole academy.
Apart from the three big professors, no one was your opponent. But now,
look at how many people who were not as good as you were, who are slowly
reaching your level and even surpassing you.”
“…Do you still want to persuade me to give up?” Van Doe smoked the
tobacco pipe deeply and the smoke at the end of the pipe lit up.
“I have said it too many times. I’m too lazy to say anymore,” the
old man in the black suit sighed. “The materials you requested have
arrived at the Inner Courtyard warehouse. You can pick them up at any
time. In them are some Star Stones that I have toiled to find.”
“Thanks a lot,” Van Doe smiled. “All these years, I’ve been
relying on you to help me collect the Star Stones. Whatever trouble you
may have, feel free to let me know. Don’t mind it. Although these old
bones of mine are not as good as they used to be, they still have some
“If Annihilating Wind Van Doe had no use, then no one in the Inner
Courtyard would dare to say that they are still useful,” the old man in
the black suit laughed. “Nothing much. Have you received the two kids I
“Mm-hmm, they’re the last bloodline of that family?”
“Yeah… I was still a step too late… Similar to the child from the
last rubble, everyone else died due to the fragments of Forbidden Mech
incident… This time may really require you to go into action during
critical moments. My sect’s degree of control in the radiation belt is
not as strong as yours. There are a lot of variables in the radiation
belt surrounding Blackboard Region recently.”
“Go ahead. Just know that my Black Flood Party will always stand behind
you. Don’t worry about it. At the most, I will go to the Polar Region
again to look for my seniors,” Van Doe said while laughing.
“Truly, it’s Inheriting big sects like you that are easy-going…
Never fighting alone…”
The black suit old man sighed.
The two old men suddenly could not help but laugh.
“Well, this will be it. I have something to deal with here. As for
those two children, I’ll be counting on you. They have good talent,
which was why I chose them and sent them to you. After all, your
conditions over there are much better than here on my side.”
The screen was instantly turned off and the light also dissipated. It was
the projection of a virtual screen.
There was still a smile on Van Doe’s face when all of a sudden, it
changed and the smile on his face instantly vanished. He seemed to have
“Just now… it seems that someone had released the force field of
Black Wind? Could it be Galafil?” his Inherited Killing Move was never
covered up because the difficulty of merely releasing it was far beyond
the imaginations of ordinary pilots. The calculations and spirit, blood,
Willpower, and movements involved required a very sophisticated
coordination. Even if it were to be put out in the open for the pilots to
cooperate and learn, there would be no way of releasing any bit of Black
Wind force field, not to mention the substance of Black Wind.
Van Doe frowned slightly.
“Doesn’t she know that using Black Wind in the villa could easily
destroy the building?”
