As the former owner of the Stars of Fury, Lin Li was certain that he would never get it wrong. The bow was not like the Stars of Fury, either.
He previously detected the magical waves of the Stars of Fury and knew that it came from it. It could be said that the characteristics and the nomological power were no different from the actual Stars of Fury.
However, the only fishy thing was that the Stars of Fury in the lightning vortex was too weak in Lin Lis opinion. Although the role of the Stars of Fury was only reflected during the usage where its power was fully exerted, it was only slightly different from an artifact. However, the bow in the vortex seemed to be only Legendary in level. It was a huge difference.
Could it be that someone really replicated the Stars of Fury?Lin Li thought about Princess Elunes Song of Heart which had some characteristics that were obviously copied from the Stars of Fury. However, the basic characteristics of the Stars of Fury was already the limit of a Smithing Guru.
Lin Li was a Smithing Guru himself, and he knew that the abilities of a Smithing Guru were not enough for the Stars of Fury to be perfectly replicated. Not to mention, even if anyone could replicate the Stars of Fury, it definitely wouldnt be just Legendary in level.
It would be impossible to figure out the true form of the Stars of Fury simply based on guessing. He would have to use his mental spells to investigate and scrutinize it thoroughly. In order to allow himself to separate enough mental strength to find out the secret in the vortex, Lin Li suddenly activated his Magical Domain of frost, light, and darkness as well as some unshaped Earth Laws to form a stronger Magical Domain.
With the development of the Magical Domain, the situation seemed to have improved. Be it the Lightning Magic that was continuously falling from the sky or the tidal magic attack, none of them could affect the defense provided by the Magical Domain. However, there wasnt a single tinge of joy on the faces of Elder Randy and the others. In fact, they looked even more worried.
Elder Randy and the rest had been thinking that the guardians of this realm were very likely to be powerhouses at the peak of the Legendary level. To mages, Magical Domains were undoubtedly their forte. Although the strong guardians had yet to appear, Lin Li immediately activated his Magical Domain. Could it be that there was already nothing else they could do?
Lin Li didnt explain anything to Elder Randy and others, and instead condensed his mental strength and peeked into the lightning vortex.
As Lin Li siphoned more and more mental strength to be put on the lightning vortex, he could not help but slow down in his casting. The Magical Domain seemed to have wavered a little too. However, it gave Elder Randy and the rest a great shock because they thought that the young mage Lin Li was no longer capable of sustaining it. Although Lin Lis casting speed returned to normal in the blink of an eye, Elder Randy and the rest felt hopeless.
Lin Li refused to believe that anyone could replicate the Stars of Fury, especially since the suspected replica could only emit Legendary-realms magical waves. In order not to provoke a counterattack from the Stars of Fury, Lin Li had no choice but to put his mental strength near the Stars of Fury before stopping. However, that was enough.
When he got a clear idea of the situation through the mental strength feedback in his mind, Lin Li was beyond astonished. He was in complete disbelief because the Stars of Fury were not replicated or real. Even if the real Stars of Fury appeared here, Lin Li wouldnt be that shocked.
Through that portion of mental strength, Lin Li clearly felt that the Stars of Fury in the lightning vortex turned out to be completely condensed by magic. Lin Li finally knew why the magical wave was only Legendary. It was because the magic that condensed the Stars of Fury was only Legendary.
The magic that condensed the Stars of Fury seemed to be only slightly different from Legendary magic, but it was definitely not the power that mortals could master. Lin Li had never heard of such a method, either. Even the ancient gods in myths and legends had spent plenty of time to create the Stars of Fury. If it could be condensed using only magic, why would they bother wasting so much energy? Wouldnt that mean that the Stars of Fury condensed by magic had more power than the ancient gods?
Even if the person who condensed the Stars of Fury was less powerful than the ancient gods, Lin Li was certain that that persons understanding of the Stars of Fury was definitely beyond that of the ancient gods who had created the Stars of Fury. Although Lin Li had once possessed the Stars of Fury, he admitted that he could not do it at all. All of this had nothing to do with level, and was instead about a complete grasp of the Stars of Fury.
Even if Lin Li reached the Sanctuary-realm, it still would be impossible for him to use magic to condense the Stars of Fury. Despite previously being the master of the Stars of Fury, Lin Lis understanding of it was very superficial.
After all, after Lin Li got the Stars of Fury in the Endless World, it didnt take him long to cross over to Anril. Moreover, when possessing the Stars of Fury, Lin Li was a Hunter by profession. He didnt know much about the nomological powers, nor could he understand the Stars of Fury well.
For an ordinary weapon, knowing its shape, material, and how to use it was akin to mastering the weapon. Even though Lin Li understood its shape, how to use it, some of its characteristics, and even remembered some of its mana waves, those were nothing to the Stars of Fury.
In fact, as an artifact, the Stars of Fury was not the most outstanding one. The reason why the ancient gods had created the Stars of Fury was because they wanted to exert the power of the debris of the stars. Without the debris of the stars, the Stars of Fury would probably not be considered an artifact. However, it was extraordinary with the debris of the stars.
Most of the energy that the ancient gods had spent on creating the Stars of Fury was used on exerting the power of the debris of the stars. In order to exert the full power of the debris of the stars, it was necessary to fully grasp the Laws contained in each piece of it.
That kind of mastery was not a result of simply gaining insights and understanding. Otherwise, that would simply be borrowing, and not exerting, the full power of the debris of the stars. Such kind of mastery was the complete control of the debris of the stars, a feat that was difficult to achieve even for the ancient gods.
With the Stars of Fury, one did not necessarily have to know all the Laws of the seven pieces of the debris of the stars, but if they wanted to fully activate the power of the debris of the stars, the nomological power required was at the highest difficulty the debris of the stars could offer. When Lin Li got the Stars of Fury, he was only a Hunter who did not have the time or capacity to study the nomological power within it.
Regarding the Stars of Fury, neither the material nor the structure was the most important. The most important factor was the Laws which could activate the debris of the stars. Amongst those Laws were the most original Laws of the world as well as the Laws that the ancient gods had altered. Hence, Lin Li could not help but be shocked when he saw the Stars of Fury that had been condensed by magic.
The pressure on everyone was constantly rising, and they were unsure if they might get ruthlessly destroyed at some point soon. However, Lin Lis eyes glistened again after recovering from the shock. He suddenly saw a glimmer of hope. If the guardians of this realm really turned out to be a Legendary powerhouse, there might be nothing else they could do, but if it were the Stars of Fury that had been condensed by magic, Lin Li felt that there would be some hope.
For Lin Li, what was more important was that the Stars of Fury that had been condensed by magic had also made him detect a hint of the Stars of Fury. Ever since hed found Holy Light, the first piece of the debris of the stars, in the underground palace, Lin Li knew that the Stars of Fury definitely existed in Anril.
Although Lin Li had never seen the Stars of Fury with his own eyes or even heard any legends about it, and the only clue was the debris of the stars, Holy Light, he still believed in the existence of the Stars of Fury. It was purely an unprecedented intuition.
He felt that way especially since the debris of the stars appeared one after another after that. The appearance of Rebirth in the Time Consignment Store and Raging Flames and Polar Snow in the underground palace of the Dragon Mountains made Lin Li even more certain that his arrival in this world had something to do with the Stars of Fury.
Although the existence of the debris of the stars couldnt prove the existence of the Stars of Fury, there was no reason for Lin Li to believe that the Stars of Fury were there just because of him.
However, the stunning longbow in the vortex in the center of the sky confirmed Lin Lis conjecture. The Stars of Fury did exist years ago, and an incredible powerhouse had probably already mastered it several years ago. Otherwise, no one would be able to condense magic into the bow in front of him.
Lin Li also had an unconfirmed guess about the powerful man who had mastered the Stars of Fury. He thought about the history of Anril and combined it with his experience in Anril, after which he guessed that the unbelievable person was very likely to be the Immortal King. The words that Lin Li heard after the black smoke disappeared in the Daylight Square, as well as the stone sculpture in the depths of the Scar of Death and the howling of the Titan Spirit, flashed past Lin Lis mind, and he seemed to have remembered something.
The Stars of Fury that had been condensed by magic immediately made Lin Lis imagination run wild, but the most important thing to do now was to get rid of the trouble in front of him. Soon, Lin Li put his thoughts aside and gripped the Helios Scepter tightly.
Although Lin Li activated his own Magical Domain and temporarily gave himself the opportunity to be distracted using the Laws of light, darkness, ice, and the earth, as the Magical Domain was activated, the offensive spells got more chaotic instead of becoming weaker.
As part of the debris of the stars, Thunderbolt already had the strongest attacking power amongst the seven pieces of the debris of the stars. Actually, its power was far from what the Legendary powerhouses could deal with, yet in Anril, those Legendary powerhouses were at the top, though only in the mortal world.
The Stars of Fury and Thunderbolt were weapons that only the gods could master, although the condensed Stars of Fury and the real Stars of Fury were worlds apart.
Countless wind elementals were still being summoned, while mana was also being released wave after wave, bombarding the magic defense that everyone was trying to support. Every wave of attacks would trigger the sounds of barriers shattering, making everyone feel scared and frightened, feeling as if they would be drowned by magic soon. Everyones heart sunk to rock bottom, filled with despair.
However, at this time, everyone suddenly discovered that the young mage who had been working hard to resist the magical attacks had already given up on casting defensive spells, and was raising the Helios Scepter slowly while chanting incessantly.
Although they didnt know what Lin Li was going to do, everyone had to unleash their greatest potential and cast their defensive spells to the fullest in order to make up for Lin Lis absence. Two Legendary-mages, Culofen and Cheyenne, had also activated their Magical Domains without hesitation to buy some time.
No one understood what spell Lin Li was casting, not even Cheyenne, Culofen, and the learned Chief Elder Randy. All they knew was that with the spell chanted by Lin Li, the magical waves around them became more turbulent and even began whistling. Although everyone was puzzled, no one dared to stop and think about it. They had no choice but to wait for Lin Li to give the final answer.
While they were all feeling confused, three arrows appeared in Lin Lis Magical Domain before turning into three elements of light, darkness, and earth that revolved around them. At this moment, everyone suddenly felt suffocated.
The power emitted by those three arrows was absolutely terrible. Although it was not the most powerful, it was definitely pure as it represented the three Lawslight, darkness, and earth. Such purity had already exceeded the limit that human beings could perceive and control. Even a Sanctuary Master might not be able to detect such a pure nomological power.
