Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1666
The Unavoidable Pinnacle Battle
Lu Sheng wasn’t present on the scene when the inheritance of Empress Xiao Yao emerged. So he didn’t know who Dragon Shisan was. In his opinion, Dragon Shisan was at best, just an Immortal Emperor whereas he was a half-step Immortal Venerable. The difference between them was definitely not small. Furthermore, he was such a dignified figure, how could he allow a puny Immortal Emperor to show off in front of him?
Dragon Shisan darted Lu Sheng a glance. This had undoubtedly hurt the pride of Lu Sheng even more as he saw the contempt and disrespect in Dragon Shisan’s eyes.
A strong wave of fury and killing intent burst out from Lu Sheng’s head. He then lunged at Dragon Shisan. Being disrespected by a puny Immortal Emperor was truly a huge disgrace to him. He must exterminate this opponent to defend his dignity.
Upon seeing Lu Sheng charging at him, Dragon Shisan’s strands of hair rippled. The iron staff in his hand emitted boundless radiance. His Fiery Golden Eyes let out two rays of dazzling brilliance. His body was filled with combat intent. That was the incredible fighting spirit of the Battle Clan. The members of this clan were warlike by nature and never knew what fear was.
Dragon Shisan’s iron staff smashed ahead. The void was instantly split into two. Under the gaze of countless people, the iron staff violently collided with the attack of Lu Sheng, setting off thousands of layers of waves. Those were the waves of the void. Destructive qi filled the place.
The body of Dragon Shisan was full of boundless chaotic force. Aside from Lu Sheng, not even Ye Qingtian, the one with the ancient Giant Bloodline could match Dragon Shisan’s strength. Under the strike of the iron staff, Lu Sheng was sent a dozen steps away before regaining his balance.
“How dare you boast shamelessly in front of Master Monkey?” Dragon Shisan’s iron staff let out a buzzing sound. He just stood there in the sky, disdaining the world below him.
Lu Sheng was truly shocked this time, and cast a transfixed look at Dragon Shisan, he couldn’t believe that this was true. Having advanced to half-step Immortal Venerable not long ago, he should have been all-powerful right now, but today he had just been defeated by a late Immortal Emperor genius. This was a total disgrace.
At this moment, not only was Lu Sheng shocked, even Zhang Yulang and Xia Xiaotian as well. Although they had already been mentally prepared, it was still incomparably surprising for them to see that not even a half-step Immortal Venerable was a match for Dragon Shishan.
“Incredible. I wonder what kind of benefits this bastard has gotten that allowed him to advance to another level once more. What’s more terrifying is that not even a half-step Immortal Venerable is a match for him. Isn’t he a little too heaven-defying?”
“I’m not really too surprised about it. He was able to fight Nanbei Chao when he was still an intermediate Immortal Emperor. Now that he has advanced to late Immortal Emperor, it’s not a strange thing that he can defeat a half-step Immortal Venerable.”
“Humph! So what if he’s this powerful? Whoever blocks the path to the entrance of the Golden Clan will die. Dragon Shisan is not an exception. Although he’s powerful, there are six half-step Immortal Venerables here. If the six of them joined forces, I’m afraid that he won’t be able to resist it even if he has three heads and six arms.”
“That’s right. Dragon Shisan is indeed strong, but it’s impossible for him to deal with such a massive force no matter how strong he is. No one will be able to block the entrance to the Golden Clan. Those six half-step Immortal Venerables are enough to exterminate him. Also, the 20 000 of us will drown Jiang Chen and his comrades in an instant. By making the world as their enemy, they will only have one outcome – death.”
Excitement filled the atmosphere. Even though Dragon Shisan had demonstrated extraordinary combat strength, he wouldn’t be able to stop 20 000 people from entering the territory of the Golden Clan. In their hearts, Dragon Shisan was certainly powerful, but to deal with the current scenario, not even two Dragon Shisans were enough.
“Gentlemen, Jiang Chen and Dragon Shisan want to stop us from entering the Golden Clan and search for treasures. That is equivalent to making all of us their enemies and cut off our future. I urge all half-step Immortal Venerables to join forces and eliminate Dragon Shisan. The rest will cooperate to kill Jiang Chen, Big Yellow and those dead spirits and break into the gateway of the Golden Clan!” Zhang Yulang shouted aloud.
As the remark came out, those who had been overwhelmed by the benefits in the Golden Clan naturally couldn’t hold it any longer. Each of them began to release their killing intent, especially those from major powers that had deep grudges against Jiang Chen. Each of their faces displayed a ferocious smile. To them, this was the best chance of eliminating Jiang Chen. They really wanted to kill Jiang Chen, but couldn’t find the chance. After all, Jiang Chen had already reached an extent where killing him had become extremely difficult, but now that he was looking for death, they certainly wouldn’t miss such a great opportunity go. The alliance of 20 000 people could instantly crush him and his comrades to powder.
“Alright, let’s do it together. For the sake of our own interests, we must not let a tiny Jiang Chen ruin our future.”
“Attack now. Attack together. We will kill them easily and effortlessly.”
“Don’t be afraid everyone. The half-step Immortal Venerables will deal with Dragon Shisan. The strongest one amongst them is only Big Yellow, and he won’t be able to stop so many attacks at once. Exterminate them and we will rush into the Golden Clan and find the Gold Feather Fan.”
Most of them yelled. Some were already holding their immortal weapon. A large group of people began to approach the gateway.
The people of Great Qian Empire, Exquisite Paradise, Celestial Flower Valley, and Profound Yin Cult remained motionless. They were, after all, the allies of Jiang Chen. It was already embarrassing enough that they couldn’t give Jiang Chen a hand, let alone turn their backs on him.
To them, it wasn’t because they didn’t want to help Jiang Chen. It was because they knew the situation very well. Even if several hundred of them joined the fight, it would still be pointless. There were countless geniuses from hundreds of different major powers. All of whom were determined to attack. They didn’t possess the heroic qualities and heaven-defying abilities of Jiang Chen so they couldn’t confront these enemies.
Jiang Chen didn’t belong to any sect or school, so he feared nothing, however, they, on the other hand, had to consider their sects. Besides, many of the enemies included the figures from Immortal Court. Not only would the great battle cause immense casualties, it would also bring unnecessary troubles to their own sect after they offended the Immortal Court.
Therefore, Yang Lang and Lan Lingji could only watch and had become the most reluctant spectator of all.
“I’m afraid that this scenario is very unfavorable to Jiang Chen.” Hua Xiaoqian spoke concernedly.
“If 20 000 people were to run amok at the same time, the consequences will be unimaginable. Even if they have heaven-defying abilities, they won’t be able to ensure their own safety.”
Yang Lang’s expression was incomparably solemn, however this battle seemed inevitable judging by Jiang Chen’s resoluteness.
