    We would had met sword saint earlier!?
    I dread to think how high our sword skills woudl be, if we had impressed the saint enought to get that sword song earlier in this LP.
    I guess we would have also got lot of comedy gold with Nie wuxing considering how protective he is of the twins :lol:. Not to mention I have feeling that there would have been lot of headbutting between Xu Jing and Nie Wuxing...Lot of trolling:lol:

    I don't think we would be in a position to troll our own master or openly hit on his daughters. He could have easily kicked us out.

    Well not blatant trolling as we do now, but perhaps more subtle. I think it would look bad on Nie wuxing, if he threw us out due temper tantrum.
    I have feeling that even, if we didn't actively opnely hit his daughters, there would have been still some uncompromising situations. Especially considering our luck with ladies and that 1 luck stat:lol:

    Going on missions for Huashan and he happens to be around to bail you and one of the twins out on a mess up. IOW plot contrivances. :M

    Would there be One Hundred Men Battle equivalents on our orthodox path?

    I don't think so.
    I think as solo fighters go, the Zhang Jue route is the strongest ones.

    Well, we might have fought the Fire Cult at Wufushan. Still don't know who ordered that one and why.

    Though obviously, we wouldn't be alone.

    Or there could have been some bandit cleansing.

    Probably, unless for some reason we would have been in Emei and been friendly realitionship with Qilin.
    I think we would have eventually done some impressive martial artist feats, but I don't orthodox routes would allow something as impressive as one hundred man battle to be survivable alone.

    We could probably do some cool shit with formation tecniques with Wudang guys or the twins.

    More chances for general badassery, actually. Being orthodox means you're always in the thick of things from the start, rather than wandering around.

    Cool!
    Then again there would have been more chances to die like a chump:lol:. I dread to think how meeting with Zhang Jue would have ended as orthodox character.:lol:

    Sword Saint-trained Xu Jing battling and impressing Zhang enough to start stalking him for a prospective apprentice, if you're lucky. :M

    Treave?
    Would there have been a chance to pick techniques apart from the main technique on orthodox side? Or would the masters taught all the techniques without giving us a chance to pick?

    Oh my god. There might not be literally nothing more terrifying than that.:lol:

    Some choices available depending on your specialty, but less variety than unorthodox

    Had he ever thought about stealing Yandi?

    Or was it considered too ungentlemanly? Or perhaps the Saint hid him well enough? :lol:

    Yandi doesn't have the savage cunning and desperate brutality of a cornered rat, which is what Jing would have needed to survive the encounter long enough to pique Zhang's interest. Assuming his qi was fixed by Wang Zhengchong at the time, that is.

    Since we are having a 'what if' session, I just have to ask the question that I feel is crucial to the understanding of the plot intricacies.

    What would have happened if we peeked in the bathroom of the Ghost Mansion?

    inb4 we lose our eye ten updates earlier.

    Anyway, the current tally:

    Hmmm.
    I wonder how effective that Zhang Jue sword style would had been. I think he developed it not to just defeat hueshan, but perhaps challenge the sword saint in his own hometurf so to speak.
    IT wouldn't be unreasonable to think that maybe he had put most thought on that one...Not implying that Zhang Jue would design any techniques half assed, since it is his favorite past time apart from actual fighting, but it might got bit more attention than the rest.

    Oh well, no use about crying past technique choises.

    Does the Saint still utilize Huashan techniques, though? I think when you are at his level, you improvise and devise your own style. Or styles. To hear him name them, he knows over a hundred already.

    Well there are lot of evidence that he was at laest working closely with hueshan people or even had been part of that sect, however it hasn't been outright stated that he was member of hueshan and later parted from the sect.
    I think all the techniques he has shown are his own, since it pretty much relay on sword qi and he is genius swordplay master, however I wouldn't be surprised if he had borrowed or got inspiration or two from hueshan swordplay.

    He was a part of Huashan, yes. He was referred to as such by Tianxie.
    He might be using Huashan teachings as a base, but I think his techniques have as much in common with them as Zhang Jue's with Shaolin ones.

    Aah forgot that little bit of information.

    It would have been interested to find out how those zhange Jue prototype techniques would have stood up against shouwang claws, when fully developed. Would chuzhan fist would have been better fully developed against shaolin monks compared to shouwang claws, even if they were not the ideal target for them?

    I guess we never know.

    Centering the fight around Xu Jing allows for two possibilities, either of which would be cool:

    1.) Jing can make groping gestures at the Twin Flowers behind their backs, hopefully sending Nie Wuxing into a rage and throwing him off balance, or even making him order an attack on Jing.
    2.) BJ likes the twins and seems to think of them as younger sisters; Zhang Manxing knew this was true enough that they were his preferred subject matter for pissing her off. It seems likely that she doesn't approve of Nie's treatment of them, and the proxy duel was her idea. It seems like there's a nontrivial chance she'll throw the match, if she can do so at no cost to herself. Disqualifying Team Nie by attacking Jing (or knocking one of the other combatants into him), if there's a plausible opening, seems like something she might do.
