Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1225
Anger surged out of the bodies of the two Divine Immortal experts when they realised that someone had stolen their reward. The kind of anger that they were feeling right now was unimaginable. Immediately, they casted out their divine sense, sweeping every corner of the cave.
“Let’s go over there and check. That thief must still be nearby. Once we found that thief, we will cut him into million pieces.”
The experts were infuriated. They turned into rays of light and exited the cave, beginning to scan the valley thoroughly. They thought that the person who stole the spiritual spring and the soul essence must have a low cultivation base, otherwise this unknown person wouldn’t have sneaked into the cave while they were busy fighting the demonic devil. This was the Evil Abyss. If the person was a half-step Golden Immortal expert, he wouldn’t make such a stealthy move because it would damage his reputation. He would certainly seize the treasures from them openly and even crush them to death.
Jiang Chen was quietly watching everything that was happening outside in his Ancestral Dragon Pagoda.
The two experts examined the area several times. They had scanned through almost every tree and grass within a thousand miles of the valley, but found nothing in the end. Out of helplessness, they returned to the cave. They gritted their teeth unpleasantly when they confirmed that it was really empty.
“Son of a b*tch! Who did this?”
“Despicable! All of our effort have been in vain because of him! Once we catch that thief, we will rip him to pieces!”
The two of them got even angrier than before. It was fortunate that their lungs didn’t burst because of such fury. Eventually, they decided to leave in disappointment.
“Come on, I’m afraid that the thief has already gone out of this area. We can only regard this as an unfortunate situation.” One of them said.
“We can’t return empty handed. That demon soul is also a good stuff. Let’s dig it out.”
Another expert flew out of the cave and dug the demon soul out of the demonic devil’s body. Jiang Chen saw what was going on, but he didn’t think that it was a pity. As he had already obtained an even greater benefit – the early Golden Immortal soul essence, he could let go of the demon soul of late Divine Immortal realm. Besides, the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda didn’t require demon soul. It would be beneficial to him as long as those two bastards didn’t destroy the corpse of the demonic devil.
Apparently, the two didn’t have any interest in the devil’s corpse and didn’t want to waste their effort in destroying it. After digging out the demon soul, the two of them left the valley and disappeared.
In the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, Jiang Chen’s mouth curled into a smile. Although the two experts had already left, he waited silently in the pagoda instead of coming out.
Ten minutes later, the two of them appeared again on the scene, but after checking the area once more, they shook their heads and left.
At this moment, Jiang Chen came out of the pagoda. As an experienced and crafty expert, the tricks of those two were no match for him.
“I have profited massively this time! Kaka!”
Jiang Chen laughed with delight and flashed out of the cave. He grabbed the devil’s corpse with his huge hand and summoned the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. When the pagoda sensed the bloody scent, it automatically devoured it. The size of the corpse was 30 meters large, but instantly, it was sucked dry and turned into dust as the wind blew, dissipating in the air.
After absorbing this huge energy, the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda immediately let out a rumble. The fifteenth level was condensing at such a speed that anyone could see it with their naked eyes. The energy that was contained in a late Divine Immortal demonic devil was massive.
As the fithteenth level of the pagoda was condensed, great things were happening inside Jiang Chen’s body – new dragon marks started to form.
That was the energy channeled by the pagoda. It was the purest energy. Unlike the energy from refining a demon soul, this energy dealt no harm to his foundation.
Soon, the fifteen level of the pagoda was fully condensed, but the energy obtained had yet to be used up. It continued until a quarter of the sixteenth level was formed. Currently, 10000 new dragon marks had been formed inside his body, increasing his combat strength once more.
A buzzing sound was heard from the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. After the fifteenth level was formed, the radiance of the pagoda became richer and the dragon marks became clearer. It exuded an ancient and wild Qi that made people afraid of looking at it directly.
The body of the pagoda became stronger and its defensive strength was enhanced. This aroused Jiang Chen’s eagerness to see it evolve rapidly. The more the levels of the pagoda were condensed, the greater the aid that it could provide to him. He believed that as the pagoda continued to level up, something magical would happen. This was what he anticipated the most.
“My foundation has almost fully recovered. After refining some of the spiritual spring and soul essence, it won’t be a problem for me to advance to the mid Heaven Immortal realm.”
He was very confident with the soul essence. It was item that had the purest energy, any expert who refined it would obtain boundless benefits.
Without wanting to stay any longer, he flew skywards and continued his journey towards the Evil Clan. There were 36 cities in the outer region of the Evil Abyss. It was far more complicated than what he had imagined. Given his current strength, even if he broke through to the mid Heaven Immortal realm after absorbing the soul essence, he would still be incapable of dominating the entire outer region. Therefore, getting a demonic devil as his helper was crucial.
On his way, he began to refine the soul essence along with the spiritual spring. Due to this being the soul essence of an early Golden Immortal realm, he couldn’t fully refine it a single time. To achieve the next level, he needed to refine it slowly. He would then keep whatever’s left after the refinement, because that might be useful to him in the future.
New dragon marks were forming again in his Qi Sea. Surging energy was channeled to all of his body parts like waves after waves. What he felt was really refreshing and intoxicating.
“The spiritual spring is definitely a good stuff. It can’t be compared with the spiritual spring in the Mortal World. My body has benefited greatly. I will leave the rest of the spring to the others. I’m sure that they’ll get more benefits compared to me when they refine this spiritual spring.”
Said Jiang Chen. The Spiritual spring was a natural resource that was scarce and rare, but it wasn’t good enough for his super abnormal body. If this was used on someone like Yan Qingcheng, it would surely bring her boundless benefits, unlocking the hidden potential in her body.
