Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1294
Refining the Fire Dragon
A violent suction burst out from the doorway of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. Tremendous scorching energy was being absorbed by the pagoda. The twenty-second level of the pagoda began to glow brilliantly after receiving the massive amount of energy. The pagoda only absorbed the energy in the magma, instead of the hot liquid rock.
As for Jiang Chen, he was interested only in the heart. He swept around with his divine sense,but found no trace of the fire dragon. This was something that he had already anticipated. The fire dragon had already developed its own intelligence and was extremely cunning. Additionally, it was the heart of the magma, which made it a part of the magma. So it was virtually impossible to locate it in this ocean of magma.
“Even if Bu Qingfeng and the others wandered here for a day and a night, they still wouldn’t be able to find a trace of the fire dragon.”
Jiang Chen sneered, but he wasn’t worried about it. He had all the time in the world right now. Given the appetite of the pagoda, it wouldn’t have a problem sucking away all of the energy in the magma.
The fire dragon would lose its calm as the energy was being absorbed by the pagoda. By that time, it would definitely show up and Jiang Chen had full confidence that he could capture and then refine it.
Due to a great deal of energy being absorbed by the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, it caused the ocean of magma to churn more intensely. Layers of magma waves roared violently. Half an hour passed like a blink. During this period, a third of the energy in the magma had already been absorbed by the pagoda. The twenty-second level had already been fully condensed. Jiang Chen had gotten tremendous benefits from it. The number of his dragon marks was increasing continuously.
At this time, all of the people outside the magma were unsettled, Jiang Chen had been in the magma for far too long. Since he dived into the magma, the ocean became even more violent, waves kept on rolling unceasingly. The experts could already sense the continuous decline in its energy. This might be an indication that Jiang Chen was still alive.
If Jiang Chen was still alive after half an hour of being in the magma, it would be horrifying to all of them and would freeze their brains temporarily.
“Motherf*cker! Is this Jiang Chen a monster or something? Could he still be in that magma for half an hour? I thought that he was already dead from the beginning, but since he vanished into the magma, changes kept occurring in it. Furthermore, do you all sense that the heat in the magma has been reduced by a third? Why would the energy be reduced all of a sudden? This must have something to do with Jiang Chen.”
“Jiang Chen must still be alive and all these changes are related to him. What has this bastard done in the magma?”
“Dammit! How could he last for so long in there? All of us only lasted for a maximum of three minutes in the magma.”
A lot of people were dumbstruck, particularly Bu Qingfeng and the others. They were the top geniuses in this place. In spite of that, they could only stay in the magma for three minutes. Jiang Chen, on the other hand, had submerged himself in the magma for so long and had reduced so much of the heat in the magma already, which was unacceptable to them.
The four great geniuses were almost fully recovered. Based on their original plan, they would dive into the magma once more to find the fire dragon, but due to the magma churning so intensely right now, they didn’t dare dive inside as they didn’t know what exactly was happening inside.
In the magma, Jiang Chen was sitting cross-legged like a still mountain, allowing the fiery waves to lash at him frantically, but all of these didn’t have any impact on him.
Suddenly, Jiang Chen’s eyes opened and stared at a distance not far away and saw the vague image of a fire dragon.
Upon seeing this, the corner of his mouth revealed a cold smirk. “It showed up at last.”
Instantly, he used the Great Soul Derivation Technique. Invisible spiritual energy flowed like water and transformed into a big net, enveloping the fire dragon within. Now that the fire dragon was trapped in this net, it became virtually impossible for it to escape.
Jiang Chen struck his True Dragon Palm.
A huge blood-red dragon claw emerged, fully containing the fire dragon inside. It struggled to resist. As the fire dragon was merely the heart of the magma, it didn’t have a very powerful attacking strength. Although it could manipulate the magma to attack, it still couldn’t make a scratch on Jiang Chen, making it lose the biggest and only advantage that it had.
Just like being caught by Yun Canglan’s palm, the fire dragon should be able to escape this grip, but there was something different in this situation. Jiang Chen’s True Dragon Palm was fully enshrouded by a layer of flames. The True Dragon Flame and True Thunderfire had combined to weave a fiery net, totally enveloping the fire dragon within.
The fire dragon let out roars. Its eyes began to reveal fear. This was supposed to be its territory, which should be impossible for anyone to restrain it, but now, with the presence of the True Dragon Flame and True Thunderfire, it was terrified, these two flames were the king of fire. Even the heart of the magma had to submit to it.
It couldn’t move while under the control of the king of fire, let alone channeling the energy of the magma. It had now been turned into a helpless prey of Jiang Chen.
“There’s no need to struggle as it’s of no use.”
Jiang Chen pulled the fire dragon closer to him and launched the Fire Dragon Seal. The Fire Dragon Seal turned into a fiery dragon that opened its huge mouth and devoured the fire dragon, then returned to Jiang Chen’s body.
A violent energy exploded from his body. The energy was so tremendous that only an abnormal being like Jiang Chen could withstand it. If he was replaced by an ordinary person, his body would have burst into pieces under such a terrible impact.
The dragon transformation skill!
It was necessary for him to circulate the dragon transformation skill at this time. The heart of the magma was then gradually being refined by Jiang Chen. Huge amount of dragon marks were condensed incessantly, enhancing Jiang Chen’s strength.
The heart of magma must not be devoured by the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, or else it would only become the pagoda’s nourishment and Jiang Chen could only obtain a portion of the benefits. If he refined the heart of magma directly, the surge of pure energy would allow him to advance to the early Divine Immortal realm or even to the peak of early Divine Immortal realm.
The ocean continued to churn. After the heart of magma was gotten by Jiang Chen, the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda’s absorption speed increased. At this rate, it wouldn’t take long for the pagoda to fully absorb all the energy in the magma.
