But in all magic weapons, the strength of their effectiveness is closely related to three aspects.
One of them is the material used to refine the magic weapon.
The better the material, the stronger the magic weapon will be. This is the same as sword making, the better the steel used, the sharper and harder the sword will be.
Secondly, it is the refiner’s own ability.
The stronger the aura and the higher the cultivation level, the stronger the magic weapon will be, just like the gap between an ordinary person and a master swordsmith, which is insurmountable.
As for the third of these, it is naturally the strength of the user himself.
All magic weapons are by no means a perpetual motion machine that can be used indefinitely.
One is that the refiner directly injects spiritual energy into the thunderbolt, so that even a person with no cultivation can use it as long as he knows the recipe.
But in this way, how long and how many times it can be used depends entirely on the amount of spiritual energy contained in the Thunderstruck Order.
Like the principle of a bared water gun, the amount of water that can be bared is not determined by who uses it, but by how much water is actually stored in it.
There was another kind, where the refiner used spiritual qi to refine the Thunderstorm Rune into the inside of the Thunderstorm Order, and each time it was used, spiritual qi had to be injected into it in order to stimulate it.
Right now, Ye Chen’s body was already quite pure in terms of spiritual energy, so he planned to use the second way to refine the Soul Penetrating Blade.
In this way, this Soul Penetrating Blade could only be used by himself, and no one else could inspire it.
However, the best material Ye Chen had at the moment for refining was the remaining giant clams.
Apart from that, there was no other choice.
So, Ye Chen used some of the remaining giant clams to refine a soul piercing blade for himself.
Ye Chen added ten layers of flying blade talismans to the soul piercing blade, so that the power of the soul piercing blade was relatively more controllable.
After the Soul Piercing Blade was refined, the whole was almost the same length as Xiao Churan’s lipstick, and it looked, like a flying blade carved out of a seashell, the whole body was the colourful pearlescent colour of a giant clam, extremely exquisite.
No matter who saw it, they would think it was just a small craft, and no one would ever consider it a weapon.
In order to test how powerful this soul piercing blade really was, Ye Chen drove alone to the Champs Elysees Spa, directly from the mid-mountain villa around to the back, and after going over several mountains, he arrived at a leafy uninhabited valley.
In the middle of this valley, Ye Chen merely inspired a layer of the Flying Blade Talisman, and felt an invisible sharp blade made of aura whistle out from the tip of his finger, instantly cutting off a cypress tree as thick as a face basin in front of him!
As he watched, a dense tree was suddenly cut off diagonally, and then the upper half of the trunk with its dense branches collapsed with a crash.
Ye Chen himself was astonished by the power of the blow, but that was not all!
After cutting the first cypress tree, the blade continued backwards, cutting through three more trees in quick succession, and when it reached the fifth tree, the power of the soul piercing blade lessened, cutting the trunk of this tree in half, before it finally dissipated!
And in front of Ye Chen, four large trees collapsed with a bang, leaving a large area of the dense woods empty in an instant!
Ye Chen looked at the scene in front of him, and then at the harmless giant clamshell knife in his hand, and muttered, “This thing, just one layer is so powerful, if it were ten layers, wouldn’t it cut down dozens of big trees in one breath?!”
Ye Chen also wondered what effect the force of cutting down dozens of big trees in one breath would have if it was used on metals and rocks.
So, he immediately sought out a boulder as large as an adult elephant, spaced it out a few dozen metres away, and violently used the Ten Layers Soul Penetrating Blade.
In this instant, he only felt as if thirty percent of the spiritual energy in his body had been drained away at once, followed by an incomparably powerful blast of spiritual energy in front of him!
A moment later, the boulder was detonated like a mountain-opening explosive, and with a loud boom, it completely shattered into countless rubble flying in the sky!
In an instant, the crumbling rocks and dust filled the surroundings, literally blocking the sky!
Ye Chen stood still and endured a shower of debris that lasted for several seconds, each piece of debris carried a great force and cut Ye Chen’s clothes into rags!
Fortunately, his body had been strengthened by his aura and a large amount of Spring Return Pills, and was already as strong as steel, or else he would have been smashed by the blow he had just delivered!
After the shower of debris had pa*sed, Ye Chen looked at the original location of the boulder with some dumbfounded eyes, which was still a huge situation before, but now, it was empty.
And the mountain behind the boulder had also been smashed into a big hole about one metre wide and three or four metres deep!
Ye Chen was greatly shocked, but also overjoyed!
He could not help but secretly sigh: “That kid Wan Bajun is really lucky, fortunately I did not think of refining such a soul piercing blade before I went up to Ye Ling Mountain, otherwise if I had given them such a blow on Ye Ling Mountain, I was afraid that I could have directly taken away Wan Bajun, his four battle kings and more than a hundred battle generals in one wave. “
