    Default Best Swordsmanship in...

    Who had the best swordsmanship or swordswomenship in HSDS assuming we take out ZWJ and Z3F.. Keep in mind although Mijue seemed awesome..the "aura of invinicbility" in swords was due to the Heaven Sword.. assuming we gave everyone the same sword.. who would prevail?

    In present day HSDS, Perhaps Fan Yao. Zhang Wuji admitted that without Taiji Sword art, he would lose to Fan Yao in the field of swordplay. Fan Yao was also superior to Eight-Armed Swordsman Fang Dongbai in sword art.

    Overall HSDS, possibly Kunlun 3 Saints He Zudao.

    Here is the text detailing Fan Yao's swordsmanship:

    但见对手剑招忽快忽慢,处处暗藏机锋,但张无忌一加拆解,他立即撤回,另使新招,几乎没一招是使得到底了的 。张无忌心下赞叹:若在半年前遇到此人,剑法上我不是他敌手。比之那八臂神剑方东白,这苦头陀又高上一筹 了。

    Fan Yao's moves fluctuated from slow to fast, embodying myriads of subtleties. Whenever Zhang Wuji countered a move, Fan Yao would immediately switch to new stances; the flexibility and fluidity made it seem like none of his stances were meant to be executed in full. Zhang Wuji praised in silence: "Had I encountered this person half a year ago, I would not be a match for him in the field of swordplay. Compared to the Eight-Armed Swordsman Fang Dongbai, this Mute Monk [Fan Yao] would be superior."
