One Piece Talent System Chapter 265

Chapter 265 Rank
"Soul-Soul Fruit"

As he left Laws lab, Ross had a thoughtful look in his eyes.
There is not much difference between the forces of the Yonk (Four Emperors) Pirates, just like the BIGMOM Pirates, maybe BIGMOM is slightly weaker than Kaido, but it is only a slight difference, and the BIGMOM Pirates has Four Sweet Commanders, which is better than Beast Pirates Three Disasters.

With the current strength of the Ghost Hand Pirates, it is easy for them to fight the BIGMOM Pirates and even defeat them. However, it is very difficult, or almost impossible, to completely destroy the BIGMOM Pirates and even kill BIGMOM.


Soul-Soul Fruit is another extremely important part of Rosss plan.

Its impossible to fight against the World Government with the power of a single Yonk (Four Emperors). Even two Yonk (Four Emperors) Pirate groups are not enough.

In addition to the marines on the surface, the internal structure of the World Government is also complex. The last one, marine fleet admiral "Steel Bone" Kong, is now hidden powers?

Yonk (Four Emperors) is the rising power of this era.

The World Government has stood here for 800 years. There is no obvious fault between their upper and lower layers, but it is a huge force handed down from one layer to another. Its essence is far beyond the comparison of any one of the Yonk (Four Emperors) Pirates.

There is also Im above the Gorsei (Five Elder Stars), the hidden Ancient Weapon Uranus all this is an unknown force.

And so.

Acquiring the Soul-Soul Fruit is a must!

Just like Blackbeard aimed at the Yami-Yami No Mi, with the intention to make the his forces strong in batch by virtue of the dark fruit and seize the strong devil fruit ability in batch, Rosss intention is to continuously expand the power of Ghost Hand Pirates by virtue of the ability of Soul-Soul Fruit and Law.


If he wants to completely destroy the BIGMOM Pirates, he still lacks the combat power to do so. Ross finally converges his thoughts and returns to his room. With a thought in his mind, he called out the Talent System Interface.

After destroying the CP0 unit, Ross got 140 Talent Proficiency Points and 1 Free Talent Point. At present, his Free Talent Points have accumulated to 3 points.

3 Free Talent Points.

Such scarcity forced Ross to not waste any point at the moment.

He even thought about how to use the Soul-Soul Fruit. If possible, he would use the worlds technology to let an object eat the Devil Fruit and combine the Cursed Blade Murasame and Soul-Soul Fruit into one and turned it into a real Demon blade which could cut the body as well as the soul.

If this method does not work, only then, he would go back and consider the method of double devil fruit ability.

"The Power of distortion needs to be improve continuously"

Ross looks at the phantom talent system interface, and after a little thought, he put 50 Talent Proficiency Points into Distortion Fruit.


A golden light flashed and changes in the interface appeared in front of him.
Firearms Shooting: 50

Close-Combat Fighting: 100

Distortion Fruit: 750

Soru of Marines Rokushiki: 0

Kami-e (Paper Drawing) by Marines Rokushiki: 0
Marines Rokushikis Gepp (Moonwalk):0

Observation Haki: 200 (Maximum Value)

Armament Haki: 200 (Maximum Value)

Haoshoku Haki: 0

Distortion Fruits proficiency has increased to 750 points, and Ross also clearly feels that the power of distortion in his body has been enhanced. In terms of pure attack, he should not be too far away from the peak state of Whitebeard.
For the remaining 90 Talent Proficiency Points, Ross put 50 points into the General Departments Rock Talent. As for the last 40 points, he considered it again and again and finally put them on the Agility Enhancement.

In fact.

Ross has considered putting them in Gepp (Moonwalk) as he uses Geppo with Gravity Distortion to walk and fight in the air.

He has been exercising Gepp (Moonwalk) and even using Gravity Distortion to aggravate his workouts, but even then, it is impossible for him to surpass the level of Garp without decades of practice.


Thanks to the existence of Agility Enhancement, coupled with the improvement of the air movement by Gravity Distortion and the spatial movement of the Distortion space, Ross felt that the methods for his body to remain in the air didnt need to be increased anymore.

He just needs to bring the Agility Enhancement to Maximum Value. His speed would be almost the same as Kizaru. Kizaru may be a little faster at close range and faster when moving over long distances.

If he had Agility Enhancement with Maximum Value, it would have been much easier to deal with Hundred Beast Kaido.


After the golden light flashed, the General Department of Talents Tree changed.

Agility Enhancement: 460 (Top Level Strengthening)

Physical Enhancement: 500 (Maximum Value)

Spirit Heart: 0 (Basic Level Strengthening)

Tenacious: 200 (Maximum Value)

Rock: 100 (High-Level Strengthening)

Agility Enhancement has reached 460 Proficiency Points, while Rock talent had reached 100 points, breaking through the level of High-Level Strengthening.
Not to mention the improvement in agility, the defense brought by Rock talent reached 100 points which is obviously a big increase.

In the past, a bullet hitting Rosss skin was able to leave a white mark on his skin. Now It would not even leave the white mark. Even a cannon may not break his skin toughness, let alone the tenacious muscles of the lower layer that are better than steel.


This kind of defense is based on not using the Armament Haki. Once Armament Haki is used, his defense will no doubt increase.
Today, even if Ross does not use the power of distortion, his physical body power and Haki alone are enough to fight a Marine Admiral. Once the power of distortion is used, killing an Admiral will not take too long.


In the Battle between Ross and Kaido, he was able to beat Kaido to a draw, and eventually, Rosss stamina was exhausted because of his flexibility and using Distortion ability to distort space several times in a row, especially with the last attack that consumed a lot of his stamina and also Kaidos, which is why the battle ended in a draw as neither side was able to continue fight.

If they repeat the previous battle once, when Kaido fully understands all the capabilities of Ross and makes the right response, it would be Ross who would exhaust his stamina first.


Now that his speed power and defense have improved by one point, the situation is completely different.

When he meets Hundred Beast Kaido again, Ross didnt have to use the ability of Distortion space to get some openings to attacks. His speed is now enough to fight with Kaido, and maybe even run Kaido out of his stamina!

If it was a coincidence before, this time it is real power.

Coincidence can be cracked, but real power cant.

"With Kaido, even after all the previous moves, He has a 60% chance of winning which over half, and he has a 70% chance against BIGMOM."

Ross clenched his fist and felt the power of ascension. His eyes glistened.

For him to have a winning chance of 70% against any Yonk (Four Emperors), this is already a very powerful force. On this level of standing at the top of the sea, who can have 100% assurance over others?!

Any mistake in one move may lead to the rewriting of the whole war situation.

Just like the gap between level 97 and level 98 and level 99, its not that big. But if a skill is misplaced, it will have a great impact on the final victory of the battle.

In the eyes of current Ross.

If the whitebeard of the peak state is counted as Level 100, then he now at level 99, Kaido is about level 98, and BIGMOM is estimated to be at level 97.

As for Red Hair Shanks, its hard for Ross to judge his power level because of the serious lack of information, but theres no doubt that its within the range of 97 to 100.

As for Marine Admiral.

The standard is above 95. This generation of Admirals like Aokiji, Akainu, and Kizaru, doesnt have much power difference between them and someone like Garp, Sengoku, are no doubt within the 97 to 100 range.


One thing Ross is pretty sure of is that with his Talent System, the level 100 is not his limit.
