Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1697
The shock was too great. The incident that happened in Corpse Yin Sect could be described as the biggest incident that had ever happened in Eastern Profound Domain. The eleven major powers had been competing against each other, trying to conquer the whole Eastern Profound Domain. Some major powers had even wanted to get rid of Corpse Yin Sect, but wasn’t able to deal much damage to it. Today, a puny Jiang Chen had almost annihilated the said sect.
This incident was like giving a naked slap to Corpse Yin Sect. From now on, they were bound to be ridiculed by countless people. There was no doubt about it.
The fire set by Jiang Chen had burned all the buildings in the sect and killed nearly half of the disciples. Corpse Yin Sect wouldn’t be able to recover from such a loss even in ten years’ time.
Just like what Old Man Corpse Yin had said, the incident in his sect had sounded the alarm for all other major powers, making it even less likely for the old ancestors of the other major powers to leave their respective sects. Given Jiang Chen’s personality, if these supreme experts were to leave their sects, he would most probably pay their sects a serious visit, and then their sects wouldn’t end up any better than Corpse Yin Sect.
Of course, Jiang Chen didn’t intend to continue storming the other major powers, he wasn’t a fool. After the incident in Corpse Yin Sect, the other major powers would be even more vigilant. The last thing he wanted right now was to encounter the old ancestors of the other major powers as their cultivation bases were very formidable. All of them were late Immortal Venerables. He was no match for them even with the Sun Divine Feather.
In the depths of the void, Jiang Chen’s hair looked disheveled, the killing intent all over his body was almost solidifying. The image of the Ancestral Dragon of Slaughter was fully formed in his innermost soul. It was blood-red, with a pair of ruthless eyes and full of the aura of slaughter. Its body was tens of thousands of miles in length, dancing vigorously in the void like a boundless mountain range.
“The time has finally come. I have been killing incessantly and I have even destroyed Corpse Yin Sect last night. The dragon transformation skill will surely evolve once more. The Dao of Slaughter has been incorporated into my body. Once the dragon transformation skill evolves, my cultivation base will rise to the peak of early Immortal Emperor realm.”
Jiang Chen’s face was full of anticipation. He had waited for this day for far too long. It was impossible for him to deny his excitement. The thing that delighted him the most during the course of cultivating the dragon transformation skill was probably every time the skill evolved.
With a flash, he entered the thirty-third level of the pagoda. He was afraid that this evolution would take a long time as it was vastly different from all the previous evolution. This time, he had comprehended the Dao of Slaughter, which was the most subtle and abstruse thing to achieve. Based on his estimation, he would need at least two months for this seclusion, and two months in the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda was only two days outside.
In the thirty-third level, Jiang Chen kept the Sun Divine Feather and circulated the dragon transformation skill to the limit. The Ancestral Dragon of Slaughter was spiraling continuously in the void. Jiang Chen’s soul seemed to have merged with the will of the Ancestral Dragon. He sat there cross-legged, dragon scales began to surface on his body.
The outside world was still in great turmoil. Numerous major powers had taken the initiative to join forces with the others even though some of those were hostile with each other. They had truly seen the threat of Jiang Chen and knew that they had to eliminate him for good.
This was because they hadn’t been putting Jiang Chen in their eyes, each of them acting privately, giving Jiang Chen the chance to take advantage of the situation. Not only had he killed numerous experts, but he also gave the various major powers a violent slap and destroyed the mighty Corpse Yin Sect, which earned him the title of god of slaughter.
The experts of the other domains had appeared and were working together to ensure that they could trap Jiang Chen the moment he appeared. Also, the overall power of each group was well balanced. Even with the Sun Divine Feather, Jiang Chen wouldn’t be able to harm them unnoticeably, at least they wouldn’t be killed so easily.
These experts weren’t fools. They already knew that Jiang Chen could kill an early Immortal Venerable with the help of the divine feather, so they had included an intermediate Immortal Venerable in their group which would be sufficient to deal with Jiang Chen. This was based on the fact that he had never killed any intermediate Immortal Venerable.
Eastern Profound Domain had been plunged into a very tense situation, however there were three major powers that remained as calm as before. They were namely Great Qian Empire, Exquisite Paradise, and Celestial Flower Valley.
During the expedition in the Golden Horizon, Exquisite Paradise and Celestial Flower Valley had avoided a major loss because of Jiang Chen and Dragon Shisan’s help, and they had even benefited considerably instead, especially the saintesses of the two sects, Lan Lingji and Hua Xiaoqian who had been rescued by Dragon Shisan. Which was why they had been extremely grateful to Dragon Shisan and Jiang Chen and had been closely observing the situation outside.
However, they were now in the same dilemma as Great Qian Empire—they had the intention to help but couldn’t. As their enemies were too strong, if they really chose to help, not only would they not be able to help Jiang Chen and Dragon Shisan, but also make themselves hostile to the enemies.
One should know that all the major powers were very infuriated now, particularly the eight major powers of Eastern Profound Domain. They had been suffering losses, but still failed to catch Jiang Chen. If Great Qian Empire and the two major powers interfered now, they would only become the punching bag for these major powers and bring fatal disaster to themselves.
Yang Yu had been very tensed these past two days. Yang Zanqing and Dongfang Yu were also checking the situation outside non-stop. The incident in Corpse Yin Sect made them shudder in fear. They absolutely didn’t expect that Jiang Chen would create such a big chaos.
“That kid has totally exceeded my expectation. I can’t help being impressed by his ability to bring Corpse Yin Sect to its knees,” Yang Yu praised Jiang Chen generously.
“Emperor, now that all the major powers have joined forces, will Jiang Chen’s life be in danger if he attacked again?” Yang Zanqing said with concern.
“Don’t worry. Jiang Chen’s not a fool. Although he’s ruthless and decisive, he has never been impulsive. Every move he makes is wise and farsighted. If it wasn’t because the old ancestor of Corpse Yin Sect leaving the sect looking for him, he wouldn’t have the chance to storm their lair. However, I really have no idea what major event he’s going to cause next.”
Yang Yu’s face was full of anticipation. This was a show with great excitement. Whether it was the cultivators involved or the spectators, all of them were paying close attention to this event. Yang Yu naturally wasn’t excluded from them for Jiang Chen was the genius that he attached the most importance to ever since he became the Emperor. He didn’t hope to see Jiang Chen in trouble but was anticipating to see Jiang Chen create another miracle.
“I also look forward to it, but it won’t be easy this time. Also, the Immortal Courts haven’t even acted yet, and I really hope they won’t, otherwise, this matter will become uncontrollable,” Dongfang Yu muttered uncontrollably. His emotion had never settled ever since the expedition in Golden Horizon.
