The Bamboo Cloudswarm Swords is a wood-element magic tool.[2] On the wiki it has been categorized as a magical treasure and profound heavenly treasure, though this needs to be fact-checked.[?] It is made primarily with Heaven Lightning Bamboo (Divine Devilbane Lightning) and strengthened with Refined Crystals,[3] Auric Essence[?] and Myriad Year Profound Jade.[?]

Three days earlier - Han Li's residence. The records say that the owner of the Heavenly Lightning Bamboo must use the fire of a Core Formation cultivator's neidan to cultivate it. In the beginning, a large amount of neidan fire is needed to suppress the golden lightning. It must be strenuously cultivated for three days, draining all its lightning, before it can be cultivated. After ten days, it can be quenched of all its impurities and its spiritual liquid is obtained. This will allow the owner to produce a wood-element magical tool.

Han Li's Magical Treasure :

  • Set: 72 Flying Swords.
  • (Former) Artifact Spirit: Silvermoon.

Appearance[]

Azure at first then Golden with the tempering of the Auric Essence.

  • Refined in a stronger set by making them pure wood attribute.[4]
  • Later obtains the Law of Lightning after being soaked in the Thunder Pool in the Grey Immortal Realm
  • Further refined by the Xuantian Gourd, another profound heavenly treasure, eventually evolving until a 3rd grade Immortal Treasure

Materials[]

The Bamboo Cloudswarm Swords is made of:

Refined Again[]

The method involved a process that was known as "planting swords".

The process consisted of finding some spirit seedlings, then planting them in a place with abundant spiritual Qi. After that, the flying swords had to be sealed within these seedlings, and as the seedlings grew, all of the materials in the sword would gradually be converted into wood-attribute materials due to the wood-attribute spiritual Qi of the spirit trees themselves. As such, there'd be no need to rid the flying swords of anything.

Once the spirit trees reached full maturity, the flying swords would've been nurtured by wood-attribute spiritual Qi for a long time. As a result, not only would this process not harm the swords, it would make them pure to an incredible degree.

Fatal flaw: it simply took too long!

As spirit trees had to grow bit by bit. Even the most ordinary of spirit trees required at least 1,000 years of nurturing care to reach full maturity.

During this time, not only could these flying swords not be used at all, it also had to be ensured that none of the spirit trees died. Otherwise, all of the prior efforts would go to waste. Even if one were to replant the flying sword into another spirit tree, the damage would already be irreversible.

As for how long was required for this process, there were no specific guidelines. However, one thing was for certain; the longer a sword was planted and the more precious the spirit tree was, the greater the degree of purity of the flying sword following the procedure.

With his small vial to assist him, Myriad Year Spirit Trees could be nurtured with no issues at all.

Even though this wasn't explicitly stated in instructions within the jade slip, it could only be better to plant the swords into a spirit tree that was the same as their main constituent material.[5]

Han Li interrupted the refinement because the battle between the three beings from the Body Integration Stage, next to his cave dwelling, was putting his life at risk.

Refining Result:[]

All of his Azure Bamboo Cloudswarm Swords had been converted to pure wood-attribute treasures, and they'd all become as light as air. Furthermore, injection of magic power could make the swords transition between a substantial state and a light form.

His newly refined Azure Bamboo Cloudswarm Swords were even more brittle and fragile than he'd feared.

But it gained the voidform ability.

The fact that the flying swords had taken on a blurry and indistinct form when he'd injected his spiritual power into them had raised his suspicions about this, and he could completely confirm those suspicions now.

This was an extraordinary ability that was rumored to exist among sword cultivators of the human race. Han Li had heard of it on many occasions, but he'd never witnessed any flying swords that possessed such an incredible ability, and he didn't think that his flying swords would attain an ability like this after his sword-planting experiment.

It was said that flying swords with such an ability could take on a completely insubstantial form and be recover back to their original form even after being pulverized into countless segments.

As such, his flying swords were essentially indestructible, and there was no need to worry about them being damaged unless he came up against some special treasures.

Of course, this was only true in theory. Every time the flying swords reconstructed themselves after being shattered, they would still incur a slight amount of damage, and the process would also expend a lot of the wielder's magic power.

If they were broken too many times or the wielder's magic power ran out, then even with the voidform ability, the flying swords would still be completely destroyed.[4]

One of the additional unexpected benefits of employing the sword-planting method; not only had the newly refined flying swords completely absorbed the spiritual Qi within the Golden Lightning Bamboo, they had also absorbed the Divine Devilbane Lightning imbued within the bamboo.

As a result, not only had his flying swords been refined to become pure wood-attribute swords, the Divine Devilbane Lightning they contained was far more plentiful and powerful than before.[6]

Lost and Found[]

He found his lost 72 Bamboo Cloudswarm swords in the mist of refining into the supreme immortal sword by Xiong Shan in the True Immortal Realm. After absorbing the countless sword qi of many swords, each sword was able to barely compare with the Profound Heavenly Treasure. A set of 72 swords were not inferior to the Profound Heavenly Treasure.

Refine Again[]

He refined again with the Dendrite Adamantine and the Milling Cloud Stone in the True Immortal Realm. Both their appearances and auras had been completely transformed. All of the impurities that he had been unable to fully refine earlier had been completely absorbed, and the quality of every single one of those swords had been significantly enhanced.

Absorbing the Sword Essences[]

They had consumed a lot of Sword Essence in the Netherfrost Immortal Abode and the amount of spiritual power it contained had increased drastically, far surpassing that of some immortal tools. The power of a single flying sword was also comparable to that of most immortal tools.

However, while the Azure Bamboo Cloudswarm Swords were extremely powerful, they didn't contain the power of laws within them. As such, they were somewhat lacking in some aspects, making them appear somewhat inferior when compared to some of the more advanced immortal tools.

Refinement in the Lightning Pools[]

Refined once again in the lightning pools and devoured the power of the lightning laws in the lightning pools in the Gray Realm when Han Li was cleansing his immortal orifices. They finally gained the law of lightning.

The Azure Bamboo Cloudswarm Swords looked completely different from before. The entire blade of the swords was a lush, verdant green that looked almost translucent. Streaks of golden lightning-like patterns appeared on the jade-like blade of the sword. The blade of the sword was wreathed in golden, sparkling electric arcs that were about the thickness of a finger. The electric arcs flickered and sizzled around the blade of the sword. There were even bits of golden runes lingering around the blade, making it look frightening. Each of them was no weaker than the few mid-grade immortal tool.

Further Refine Again[]

He was able to refine all 72 Azure Bamboo Cloudswarm Swords in the Five Colored Lightning Pool again with the help of several types of lightning secret techniques from the Five Lightnings Technique and the power of the Profound Heavenly Gourd.

The Laws of Lightning within the newly-refined Bamboo Cloudswarm Swords had been enhanced significantly, reaching the level of a fifth-grade immortal tool. The nature of the swords had also undergone a qualitative change, evolving into the Capital Heavenly Divine Lightning of the 36 Heavenly Lightning Tribulations that possessed the most destructive power among all 36 Heavenly Lightning Tribulations, and it's more than enough to destroy everything in its path.[7]

Appearance of the Sword Spirits[]

After all the 72 swords absorbed the Eye of Lightning Kui even with the expense of destroying the Profound Heavenly Gourd, every sword eventually gave birth the sword spirit. All of the spirits looked like children and they were translucent and green in color, with only a tuft of hair on their heads and two golden eyes. There was also a pair of golden bands around their wrists and ankles, with intricate golden lightning patterns seen on them.

What was different from the previous ones was that all of the flying swords were inscribed with golden lightning dao patterns, and every single one of them exuded an aura that was clearly that of a third-grade immortal tool.[8]

History[]

After cultivating the Heavenly Lightning Bamboo into a 10 000 year old Golden Lightning Bamboo, Han Li refined it into 72 Bamboo Cloudswarm Swords.[2]

The records say that the owner of the Heavenly Lightning Bamboo must use the fire of a Core Formation cultivator's neidan to cultivate it. In the beginning, a large amount of neidan fire is needed to suppress the golden lightning. It must be strenuously cultivated for three days, draining all its lightning, before it can be cultivated. After ten days, it can be quenched of all its impurities and its spiritual liquid is obtained. This will allow the owner to produce a wood-element magical tool.[2]
