    Why do you think this blade belonged to Chi You at all?

    I think I am going to go with C>B for now. Our unarmed skill is still probably our strongest assest. The Xianglong Palms will keep her at a distance and a medium reach means we have more of a radius to protect Shun.

    Even if I am wrong I am still in favor of going in all gun blazing blades slashing.

    I have a feeling we now know why Gao Ying was missing. Smart lad, that Shun.
    I wonder if our victory here might actually amuse the Gods, after all if a Tang prince can do such gambits and stand even against the will of Heaven... dis gonna be gud. :popcorn:
    If not, I say fuck them, start massive zoroastrian missionary work. Ahura Mazdra FTW, fuck those whimsy douches!

    From some of the data the bros have unearthed, Bandwagon is the best option here.
    I'm not getting into a bone-melting claw close fight against a immortal. She prolly doesn't give a shit about us hitting her with a mean claw swipe, but if she hits us enough we die. Swords give us a distance advantage.
    She's not going to go after Shun while we slash at her with two legendary swords and a wodao. One of them we can even swing with the silk so extra distance advantage.

    Gah, we should't have let Cao'er go to the Sword Saint.
    We have to defeat or delay her until someone else shows up to back us up. Gao Ying, Bai Jiutian, anybody. I would accept even Nie Wuxing right now.

    A

    We are used at dodging lethal unarmed attack.
    Our claws might be not as legendary, but I bet they will do the job.

    Edit: After looking at the sword techniques, I think we want to avoid them. They seem to better for fencing.

    I think A will be the best, as our strength and speed in a balls-out offensive will be best against a caster-type.

    edit again: It seems like Gao Ying did something to "profane" the sacred ground, which destroyed the altar and has (hopefully) made her susceptible to "mortal" attacks.

    Voting A. I don't think we'll have the opportunity to grab the Chixiao Sword. It's clear that if we show the slightest opening, she'll kill us both. Reaching for an extra sword seems to be one of those things. As for bone-dissolving moves, chaos qi does funny things to moves that require extreme purity.

    Besides, our sword techniques are weaker than our unarmed techniques.

    Huh, can we use that?

    How far away is Shun?

    Did we?
    I'm not sure Shun would've survived a all-out immortal showdown with a blade pointed at his neck.

    Also, more evidence that Shun has some level of pugilistic ability.

    Perhaps, but Jing doesn't want to leave Shun without anything to defend himself with. Just in case.

    I don't think you should be discarding the legendary sword you are the most familiar with prior to going in for a sword fight, but if you insist on having the Xuanyuan Sword, I'll add another option.

    The Chi Xiao sword is tied to a silk string that we still have (or I assume we still do - why else mention that it is wrapped in silk?). Should we want to grab it, we don't even need to reach for it.

    Not a fan of getting close and personal with an immortal banking on our superior stats alone - we don't know the boundaries of the abilities of the immortals in the first place. Xuezi thrashed the whole Eight Sects single-handedly once.

    Not to mention Chi You kinda hates it.

    Anyway, votan C> B stove I like our plan for C and B seems like the cunning plan that wet pulled off against the Sword Demon. The Choxiao is tethered to us, so any gambit we'll set up won't suffer from a distraction.

    treave, how does Wuming Jiuyu Shenyin Art work? It is said to be able to conquer armies with shadows, but what does it do? Summons the shadows we've seen in the hall to vanquish your enemy? Or what?

    Most swords are made of steel.

    Xuezi is an immortal in the sense that she has achieved a type of immortality, but she doesn't do Taoist magic voodoo like actual celestials can. A direct comparison of fighting ability isn't really suitable, I think.

    You'll know when you get hit by it? :lol:
