Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 103
40 Dragon Marks
Chapter 103 – 40 Dragon Marks
The Earth Fruit was formed by absorbing Earth essence. It was a rare natural treasure. The fruit in Jiang Chen’s hand was only about one thousand years old, so the Earth essence contained within wasn’t much. Nevertheless, the purity of the energy was not something that could be underestimated.
Such a natural treasure was just right for the current Jiang Chen. With this Earth Fruit, he could without a doubt break through to the Mid Mortal Core realm.
Jiang Chen circulated the Dragon Transformation skill. The Yuan energy within his Qi Sea was producing a buzzing sound. Twenty-five Dragon Marks were swimming around within his Qi Sea like real dragons, forming a whirlpool.
Only after the Dragon Transformation skill was circulating at its maximum speed did Jiang Chen swallow the Earth Fruit.
The powerful energy contained within the Earth Fruit instantly erupted and started rushing into all limbs and bones within Jiang Chen’s body.
“What powerful energy! Haha, this kind of feeling is awesome!”
Jiang Chen’s face was full of excitement. The way he was absorbing the Earth Fruit, if it was seen by someone else, that person would be shocked speechless. The energy contained within a thousand years old Earth Fruit couldn’t be immediately absorbed by a Mortal Core warrior. Even if the Little Devil King or Li Wu Shuang obtained this Earth Fruit, in order to absorb it, they would need to do it bit by bit. Swallowing the entire thing straight away like Jiang Chen did was just crazy.
Jiang Chen did this for a reason. The sudden intense surge of energy contained within the Earth Fruit could only be controlled by an ultimate skill like the Dragon Transformation skill.
When the Dragon Transformation skill circulated at its maximum speed, all the Dragon Marks in Jiang Chen’s body started vibrating violently. There was even a faint sound like that of a roaring dragon coming out of Jiang Chen’s body. Above his head, qi shaped like a dragon was floating around. His black hair was waving without wind, he looked like an ancient demon beast that was about to awaken.
Guided by the control of the Dragon Transformation skill, the energy within the Earth Fruit entered Jiang Chen’s Qi Sea and started forming into new Dragon Marks.
Jiang Chen first absorbed the Big Yellow’s Dragon Horse blood. Then, he absorbed the Blood Winged Hawk’s Demon Soul, and then he got his thoughts smoothened during the Qi Province competition. Right now, with the help of the Earth Fruit, it could be said that he had a rich accumulation, and was ready to break through.
In just a single hour, five new Dragon Marks appeared within Jiang Chen’s Qi Sea. Including the previous 25, the total number of Dragon Marks was 30. When the 30th Dragon Mark was completely condensed, Jiang Chen’s energy became restless.
“Going to break through.”
Jiang Chen immediately became thrilled. He grabbed a huge pile of Mortal Restoration Pills from his storage ring and absorbed them straight away. When cultivating the Dragon Transformation skill, every single breakthrough would require the support of a huge amount of energy, and this was the reason why Jiang Chen’s need for Restoration Pills was much higher than anybody else’s.
Powerful jets of air rushed out from Jiang Chen’s body. If it wasn’t for Jiang Chen purposely controlling these, the room would have been destroyed by the them. Even with this, the energy from him breaking through was very intense. The natural energies within the air above the courtyard were instantly emptied.
“Big Bro Jiang Chen has broken through to the Mid Mortal Core realm!”
Within the courtyard, Yan Chen Yu was very happy.
“I wonder what kind of insane skill this fellow is cultivating… Every time he breaks through, there is always such a huge momentum, truly insane.”
Big Yellow muttered to himself.
At the same time, the people within the Black Sect’s Chamber of Commerce also sensed the imposing momentum, shocking many of them.
“It’s coming from Jiang Chen’s courtyard! Looking at this momentum, it seems like Jiang Chen is breaking through!”
“So now there’s another remarkable genius in the Black Sect! From now on, it won’t just be Nan Bei Chao in the Qi Province!”
“Send my order, nobody is allowed to get close to the courtyard! Do not disturb Jiang Chen’s cultivation!”
Jiang Chen’s name had been heard by every single person in the Whirling Sun City. No one in the Black Sect’s Chamber of Commerce hadn’t heard about him. Besides, Jiang Chen was a genius even amongst all disciples of the Black Sect. Those who worked in the Chamber of Commerce could only feel pure admiration in their hearts.
Only after absorbing 1000 Mortal Restoration Pills, did Jiang Chen managed to completely stabilize his cultivation at the Mid Mortal Core realm. Such a huge consumption of Mortal Restoration Pills was not something an ordinary cultivator could afford. If he was going to break through to the Late Mortal Core realm, the amount he would need to consume would be even greater. He would at least need 3000 pills.
The Yuan energy within his Qi Sea was vibrating. The blood red Dragon Marks were rolling around, and powerful qi hovered around Jiang Chen. After the 30th Dragon Mark had been condensed, the whole process was still far from over. He had only used about 30% of the massive amount of energy stored within the Earth Fruit.
Jiang Chen circulated the Dragon Transformation skill at its maximum speed. New Dragon Marks continued forming within his Qi Sea. One mark, two marks, three marks, and it did not stop until next morning. A total of 10 Dragon Marks had been completely condensed. Only now was all the energy from the Earth Fruit consumed.
Right now, within Jiang Chen’s Qi Sea, 40 Dragon Marks were hovering around his Mortal Core. They all resembled real and lively dragons, it was very mystical.
As for Jiang Chen’s cultivation level, not only had he broken through to the Mid Mortal Core realm and stabilized it, there were even signs that he was about to break through to the Late Mortal Core realm soon.
40 Dragon Marks, that was a force of 400,000 Jin. A Mid Mortal Core warrior possessing this kind of force was just unbelievable.
“According to the Dragon Transformation skill, if I want to reach the Late Mortal Core realm, I will need to form a total of 60 Dragon Marks. Now, I have managed to form 40 of them. The distance to the Late Mortal Core realm is not far away.”
Jiang Chen’s sharp vision kept blinking. The increase in strength that 40 Dragon Marks had provided him was unimaginable. He could only describe it with the word ‘powerful’.
“With my current strength and ability, I can kill any Mortal Core warrior in just a second. If I were to face Li Wu Shuang as I am now, I would be able to kill him with just a single slap, and I wouldn’t need to engage in a long fight. Now, even ordinary Early Heavenly Core warriors will not be my match. If I can use the Axe of Thunder, then I’ll be able to kill any Early Heavenly Core warrior with ease.”
With an imposing manner, Jiang Chen was unleashing an aura of confidence from every part of his body. Fighting a Heavenly Core warrior while just being a Mid Mortal Core warrior, this was just insane. The gap between the Mortal Core realm and the Heavenly Core realm was not small. Those who had reached the Heavenly Core realm had the ability to control the Yuan energy within the natural environment.
However, Jiang Chen was an unusual being, a complete monster. Cultivating the Dragon Transformation skill, together with his experience and the methods of a Saint, he couldn’t be judged by normal standards.
The increase in his cultivation level had also made Jiang Chen’s combat skill’s power up. With his current level, if he attacked with the Six Solar Fingers, he would be able to use Three Solar Fingers, and the Sonic Hawk Cry’s power had also increased by a lot.
Jiang Chen didn’t leave the room yet, but instead, he took out the Clap of Thunder combat skill from his storage ring. He already had a vast amount of combat skills, but if he managed to learn the Clap of Thunder skill, he would posses another powerful skill which would allow him to travel around the Qi Province without finding any match in the same generation.
Jiang Chen flipped through the Clap of Thunder skill book. It only required him to read it once before understanding all the key elements within this combat skill. With his cultivation experience of a Saint, reading and understanding an Earth level combat skill book was not difficult at all. This was an advantage that he had.
However, this advantage was simply too strong. When other people started cultivating a combat skill, they would need at least a few months, or perhaps even years before they could understand the key elements within. But for Jiang Chen, it only took him a single read before he understood everything. Besides, when using a combat skill through the Dragon Transformation skill, it would be much stronger than any ordinary skills. Such an advantage was already enough to make one a destined genius without any peers in their generations.
Around noon, Jiang Chen tidied up his clothes and walked out of the room. Jiang Chen was very happy after breaking through to the Mid Mortal Core realm, and his face was covered in a bright smile.
“Big Bro Jiang Chen, have you broken through?”
Seeing Jiang Chen coming out, Yan Chen Yu immediately ran up to him.
Jiang Chen pampered Yan Chen Yu by pinching her nose, making the little girl giggle.
“Big Bro Jiang Chen, are we going to the Black Sect now?”
Yan Chen Yu asked.
“That’s right. We’ll be leaving now. We are after all disciples of the Black Sect now, we have to go there.”
Jiang Chen said. After that, he turned around to Big Yellow and asked, “Big Yellow, are you going to come with us?”
“Go, of course I’ll go.”
Big Yellow said. His tail immediately began wagging.
“Let me first make this clear, the Black Sect is not the Heavenly Sword Sect. I owe them a debt of gratitude. Don’t cause any trouble when you’re there, if you can’t do that, then I won’t bring you there even if you killed me.”
Jiang Chen said in a solemn manner. The evil-minded dog was of a rare species. He would do whatever he wanted, and if he did in the Black Sect what he did in the Heavenly Sword Sect, it would be a huge problem.
“Don’t worry, I know what to do.”
Big Yellow nodded his head in a serious manner. Although he looked like a good doggy now, Jiang Chen still thought that this dog couldn’t be depended upon.
But at least, while he was together with Big Yellow, Jiang Chen believed Big Yellow wouldn’t be so cruel. Besides, benefits of bringing this dog with him just limitless. The ten thousand years old Freezing Crystal and the wealth left over by a Divine Core warrior had proved Big Yellow’s ability.
“Alright, we’ll fly to the Black Sect now. You’ll use your wings of light and carry Xiao Yu.”
Jiang Chen said.
“What? No way!”
Big Yellow expressed a sad face, “Last time when we escaped from Silver Moon City, I overused my wings. I can’t use them again for the time being. In my opinion, you should use your blood wings to carry me and Xiao Yu!”
“Is that so?”
Jiang Chen pulled Big Yellow’s ear and spoke while grinding his teeth, “Damned dog, do not try to play any tricks on I, your father! Your innate ability was supposedly restored half a month ago! If you want to follow us, then just listen to what I say, and carry Xiao Yu! If not, then just stay here.”
This dog was really cunning, it would take half a month at most to recover from the backlash due to overexerting himself. They had spent more than half a month when traveling from Silver Moon City to Whirling Sun City, he should already have completely recovered a few days ago. If not, then he wouldn’t have been able to run so fast when the disciples of the Heavenly Sword Sect searched for him in the Whirling Sun Square.
Three figures shot up into the sky from the Black Sect’s Chamber of Commerce, and soon disappeared high into the skies. A young man in white with wings on his back, and a big dog with yellow fur all over his body who was carrying a young girl dressed in purple on his back, while muttering without stop in order to release his dissatisfaction.
Jiang Chen and Big Yellow were flying above some mountain. While Jiang Chen was flying with great speed, his expression suddenly turned cold.
“Something’s not right.”
Right after Jiang Chen’s voice sounded out, four powerful energies suddenly appeared right in front of them. Four shadowy figures flew up from below and surrounded Jiang Chen and Big Yellow from four corners. These people had obviously been waiting here for a long time.
