    Each and everyone one on the poll has a lot of people wanting it. But could we truly compare them in an accurate way? Not really. I think the DS and HS are the most sought-after.

    I think HSDS because not only do you get the martial treasure 9 Yin, but you also get the warring manual of the legendary general-Yue Fei.

    I agree that it should be the Heaven Sword and the Dragon Sabre because more people were killed or had their lives changed forever due to the pursuit of the two weapons than the pursuit of any other wulin artifact. I don't think any other artifact caused more overall strife in wulin.

    9yin was desired by more powerful people than the HS/DS, perhaps that makes 9yin more valuable since even someone as arrogant as Huang Yaoshi would resort to tricks to get 9YIN?

    Most sought after did not mean most valuable. Just the most 'well marketed'.

    It should be the HSDS.

    Most VALUED is naturally HSDS with army+martial art. You also get 9 Yin the package, except it comes as a suprise.

    The HSDS followed by QHBD. The rest are only known to a handful of top experts and didn't bother the rest of wulin that much.

    HS/DSS 'cuz everyone had the delusion that having both would mean that the owner would rule over the martial arts world.

    Only Priestess Mie Jue and ZZR knew what was going on.

    It never actually did say what the people who wanted to get the HSDS wanted to do with it? I mean did they suspect a martial arts manual, or did they really believe it was a divine object that magically lets them rule? It's like...YAY I GOT IT!! *2 minutes later* Uhh now what...

    They knew there was a secret to figure out, but nobody ever came close to guessing what that secret was. Tse Tsun held on to that darn sabre for over twenty years and he never came close to discovering its secret.

    A little off topic:
    Why on earth did Xie Yanke give out the Black Steel Symbol? He didnt want anything in return did he?

    On topic:
    HS and DS. DS changed owner several times, and many people saw that they had a chance get hold on it. 9Yin was great, but it was possesed by the Greats. Most people gave up the idea of getting hold on it.
    You do know that it is just fiction, dont you?

    Briefly, Xie Yanke had 3 Black Steel Symbols that he gave to 3 friends who had helped him in the past, so that he could return their favours in their time of need.

    The HSDS definitely, so many people died for it.

    The secret was indeed well-kept.
