Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1308
790,000 Dragon Marks
The Ancestral Dragon Pagoda was Jiang Chen greatest trump card. It could be used to escape and hide, but Jiang Chen had never hidden himself in the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda during a battle before. Naturally, if the opponent was overpowering, he would run for his life, but now, he was competing with his peers, he had no reason to flee.
The sudden retreat would indirectly affect Jiang Chen’s disposition. He was the True Son of the Heavens and the True Son of Heavens would never retreat, but due to the tremendous energy in the Immortal Execution Order, Jiang Chen had no other choice. After all, the energy was just too powerful and he couldn’t refine all of it within a short period of time. Plus, Yun Canglan and Huangfu Zhan would never give him time to advance.
Therefore, Jiang Chen had no other choice than to hide in the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. The moment he advanced, he would return to the outside world and begin a massacre to win back his own dignity and rebuild his dominance. He knew that whether it was the dragon transformation skill or the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, they had a certain spirit in them. If he chose to retreat every time, he was afraid that it would stir up doubts in these two existences which would be detrimental to his path of cultivation.
Ten thousand dragon marks had been condensed out. The number of dragon marks in Jiang Chen’s body had already reached 750,000. Enormous amount of Immortal Meta Stones were being refined, pushing his cultivation to the intermediate Divine Immortal realm. At this level, he had enough strength to reverse the situation around by defeating Yun Canglan and Huangfu Zhan, but it was still somewhat difficult for him to kill them. However, Jiang Chen’s advancement hadn’t stopped. The scary energy in the Immortal Execution Order was far from exhaustion. As long as Jiang Chen condensed another 40,000 dragon marks and reach the peak of the intermediate Divine Immortal realm, killing Yun Canglan and Hangfu Zhan would be as effortless as blowing dust.
Even after advancing to the intermediate Divine Immortal realm, the energy in his Qi Sea was still churning like tidal waves. Under the circulation of the dragon transformation skill, massive amount of energy began to form dragon marks. Every newly-formed dragon marks pushed Jiang Chen towards another level, enhancing his combat strength.
At this moment, outside the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, the scene had already turned incredibly silent. Everyone was looking for a trace of Jiang Chen, but regardless of how hard they tried, they couldn’t find a thing about him.
“Where has Senior Brother Jiang gone to? What an amazing skill!”
A disciple of Skycloud Pavilion spoke softly. Now, Jiang Chen had risen to fame in Skycloud Pavilion, especially in the hearts of the young disciples; he was regarded as an omnipotent being. Virtually all of the most valuable treasures in the ancient tomb had been gotten by him.
“Brother Jiang’s means isn’t something we can imagine. He’s an extraordinary cultivator. I’m getting more and more confident about his ability. It seems like it won’t be easy for Yun Canglan and Huangfu Zhan to kill him anymore.”
Guo Jie smiled. Jiang Chen had given him too many surprises, which grew his confidence in Jiang Chen.
Fu Hui was among the crowd shaking his head. Back when he first met Jiang Chen, which wasn’t long ago, Jiang Chen had just destroyed the ore mine of Profound Sun Sect and was finding someone that could bring him into Skycloud Pavilion. Comparing him to Jiang Chen, he shouldn’t be called a genius anymore.
“Humph! This group of bastards are thinking to kill Senior Brother Jiang? I don’t think so. With such a peerless figure emerging from Skycloud Pavilion, he’s going to rise to power sooner or later. When that time comes, the whole One-Line-Sky will be dominated by only our pavilion.”
“That’s right. Senior Brother Jiang is truly a genius. Every young talent in One-Line-Sky isn’t qualified to be called geniuses compared to Senior Brother Jiang.”
“However, where do you all think Senior Brother Jiang has gone to? Could it be that he has already escaped and left the ancient tomb?”
Each and every disciple of Skycloud Pavilion seemed high and mighty, feeling that it was an honor to be in the same sect with Jiang Chen. They’re even willing to surrender to Jiang Chen when they saw Jiang Chen’s powerful means. To them, Jiang Chen was someone who could do anything. The existence of Jiang Chen had turned all the other geniuses to ordinary beings.
“Dammit! Where did that bastard go? Normally a concealing technique won’t be able to last for so long and leave no trace behind.”
Tuo Hai couldn’t help but curse. Yun Canglan and Huangfu Zhan seemed tense. They had witnessed Jiang Chen’s scariness. If someone like him wasn’t eliminated today, the repercussions would be inconceivable.
In the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, Jiang Chen’s Qi had already climbed to its peak height. He had used up all the energy in the Immortal Execution Order to condense another 40,000 dragon marks. Adding the 750,000, the total of dragon marks in his body reached 790 000, leaving only 10,000 more to reach the late Divine Immortal realm. His current state had already stopped at the peak of the intermediate Divine Immortal realm. The Qi that was exuded from his dragon form could already shake people’s soul. His blood-red dragon eyes gave people the feeling as if they had fallen into the pits of hell.
A surge of formidable Qi rushed out of his body. As the saying goes: the stronger you are, the more confident you will become. Self-confidence was something Jiang Chen had never lacked. At this moment, his confidence was at its peak. He casually adjusted his condition and walked out of the pagoda through the door.
Just now, he disappeared unnoticeably, and now he reappeared without a trace as well, as if he had never left at all.
Someone exclaimed. Innumerable eyes fell upon Jiang Chen. The way they looked at Jiang Chen was like they had seen a ghost. Appearing in one moment and disappear in the next had stunned all of them. No one could explain how Jiang Chen did it, but he did it anyway.
Without much hesitation, Yun Canglan’s killing intent soared, he struck out the Turning Clouds Palm once more at Jiang Chen. In his point of view, Jiang Chen could never conceal himself anymore. Now, he had to kill Jiang Chen as soon as possible. As long as Jiang Chen wasn’t killed, his heart would never be at ease. He would always feel that something big would happen.
Jiang Chen harrumphed coldly and faced Yun Canglan once more. His face was full of ease and cruelty. The Heavenly Saint Sword materialized in his hand and was slashed forward.
Formidable attack power broke out in an astonishing momentum. The Turning Clouds Palm was no match under the indestructible Heavenly Saint Sword. Countless palm prints were slashed to pieces with this single strike. The long sword turned into a ferocious dragon – that was the might of the dragon sword – lunging forward, reaching Yun Canglan in a blink.
