    Default Best Sword Art in Jin Yong World

    1. Dugu Nine Swords (SPW)
    2. Jade Maiden Sword (RCH)
    3. Six Meridian Divine Swords

    My guess is Six Meridian Divine Swords is still the best because it uses Qi instead of an actual sword

    The best true sword technique (of no technique), but you still need to get opponents into slashing range to use it and it might be less effective against opponents who have exponentially greater inner power.

    2. Jade Maiden Sword (RCH)
    Good, but overrated. Needs to combined with Cheun Jen Sword Technique to be fully effective.

    3. Six Meridian Divine Swords

    Considering that you can point and zap from a considerable distance...yeah. The main drawback is it requires a deep reservoir of inner power and (ideally) expertise in 1 Yeung Finger Technique to be effective.

    What about Evil Resisting sword? Also thereís the Yue Maiden sword used by Aqing that could solo an entire army.

    Tai Chi sword, only need to grasp the concept rather than set sword moves.

    Evil Resisting sword depends purely on castration and speed but even that, it lost to Dugu Nine Sword because after a while the moves repeats itself

    Chongxu lost to LHC in the battle, which is why I didnít think it was a good sword art. If it was ZWJ using Tai Chi sword perhaps the results would have been different?

    If someone knows the dual hand combat which ZBT created and uses the Jade Maiden Sword, which could be rare, then I foresee the Jade Maiden Sword would be the best sword art in JY world

    Yup. Chongxu comes across as an average Wudang expert to me. I guess its normal that the next generation's capabilities degrades as time goes by.

    That would be XLN. She would kick LHC's *** anytime in terms of speed and skills

    If I were to speculate, Chung Hui likely reached a level similar to where Yu Lin Chou (Mo Dong Hero # 2 from HSDS) would have ended up at his peak (assuming that he hadn't already peaked by the end of HSDS). Yu Lin Chou was characterized as the most accomplished martial artist (Cheung Chui San was the most talented, but he died early) among Cheung 3 Fung's seven disciples, so I imagine that Yu's peak level was probably comparable to Chung Hui's.

    T'would be an interesting duel, methinks. It could honestly go either way.

    Yeah I agree.YLZ figured out the way to beat SQS's 9 Bone Claws on his own while Fan Yao needed a pointer from ZWJ. So sword arts-wise, he was pretty advanced already.

    CX doesn't impress me in anything. So he "lost" to LHC the first time. Why couldn't he figure out a counter move the second time? His mind is still imprisoned by the move of LHC's 9 Swords, the one that beat him, meaning he's not yet at the stage of formless-ness required by Taiji sword. He was still trying to beat a specific move. That's why he failed.

    It doesn't makes difference at all.

    CX got the point that LHC break taiji and because of that he didn't try anymore.
    This is the most important point.LHC find taiji's weakness and break it.After that moment even ZSF himself couldn't do anything about it unless somehow he change the entire taiji's circular philosophy to overcome that weakness.

    It does. One consensus this forum has come to over the years is that the practitioner ultimately matters more than the technique. If this were not the case, then Ling Wu Chung would never have lost a fight after learning Dook Goo 9 Swords (but he did). Cheung 3 Fung was the inventor and ultimate practitioner of Tai Chi Sword Technique, and the only practitioner of Dook Goo Sword Techniques who has a better than 50% of defeating him would be Dook Goo Kau Bai himself.

    Agree with you on this, Ken. Take YBQ for instance, he got his butt whooped by his own student even though he had learned the resisting evil swordplay whereas the monk of Lin family dominated the martial art world
