Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1796
The Remains of a Great Sovereign
Jiang Chen’s eyes were blazing like a torch as he looked at the direction of the mountain, not listening fully to what the elder was saying. What he cared the most right now was to find the coffin. The popularity and the backstory of the mountain had nothing to do with him.
However, if Jiang Chen paid attention to what the elder said, given his wisdom, he wouldn’t be as indifferent as he was now. He could easily figure something out from these two names – Monarch Mountain and Great Sovereign Batian.
The mountain was densely packed with cultivators. Topics about the Immortal Burying Coffin could be heard everywhere. Jiang Chen found Fenghua Zi very quickly and appeared to his side in a flash.
“You have come, Brother Jiang.” Fenghua Zi greeted Jiang Chen with a smile.
“Sect Master, where’s the Immortal Burying Coffin?”
Jiang Chen asked. He had covered the entire Monarch Mountain with his divine sense but couldn’t find a trace of the coffin, not even its qi.
“The Immortal Burying Coffin has emerged in different locations of the Central Domain in these past two days. It was last seen above the Monarch Mountain. It has been gone for several hours, and hasn’t showed up ever since,” said Fenghua Zi.
“It vanished again?”
Jiang Chen knitted his eyebrows, seeming as though he had missed a good chance. He knew that the coffin would be less likely to appear again after it vanished, but what made him wonder was that ever since the coffin disappeared from the ancient tomb, it had never appeared. So why did it suddenly appear in Fengchi Immortal Domain, and drifted in the sky of the Central Domain for two days, and then just vanished out of sight above the Monarch Mountain?
Was the Immortal Burying Coffin seeking for something? Did the Monarch Mountain had anything to do with the coffin?
He knew that some great secret must have been involved in this matter. Unfortunately, Big Yellow wasn’t with him. Otherwise, he could force the answer out of Big Yellow.
“Great Sovereign Zang Xian is an ancient figure. Everyone recognized him as the brother of the Immortal Execution King. Both of them could go anywhere in the world at their will and were invincible, but no one knew why they had disappeared all of a sudden. It was unexpected that the Immortal Burying Coffin appeared once more, after so many years.”
“I have seen the true coffin before. It’s astounding. The ancient qi emanated from the ancient coffin gave me a feeling of dizziness. The ancient weapon of a Great Sovereign is really too powerful. I heard that Great Sovereign Zang Xian had used the coffin to take countless of lives, which also meant that the coffin has been refined by countless of flesh and blood.”
“Unfortunately I came late. I’m not able to see the real Immortal Burying Coffin, but why did the coffin appear in the Central Domain all of a sudden? And why did it vanish above Monarch Mountain?”
“Could it be that there’s a close connection between the coffin and the Monarch Mountain?”
Doubts and questions were spreading amongst the crowd. As the Central Domain had been peaceful for too long, the appearance of the Immortal Burying Coffin would undoubtedly set off a storm in the domain.
The Monarch Mountain was a popular place that had existed for a very long time. The fact that the coffin disappeared right above the mountain made people couldn’t help but connect the two together.
Although the coffin was already gone, more and more people were still coming to the mountain. Immortal Venerables could be found everywhere. The crowd was getting bigger and bigger.
Jiang Chen circulated the divination art, not divining the connection between the Immortal Burying Coffin and Monarch Mountain, but the major incident that would take place here. It was a vague divination, but also incomparably precise. After reaching the Heavenly Will realm, he had never made a mistake in his prediction.
However, even after circling around above the mountain three times, he still found nothing, he could feel an unordinary nobility from the mountain, however.
Two days passed in a flash, but the coffin didn’t appear. Some people began to feel that it was pointless to linger around and decided to leave.
Or perhaps it was merely a small interlude to the people in Central Domain. It was considered lucky enough to be able to see the real Immortal Burying Coffin. Any hope other than that was extravagant.
Just as large number of people were about to depart, the mountain shook all of a sudden.
A sudden flash of light shot out from the peak of the mountain. It seemed like the most dazzling light in the Heavens and Earth, creating a huge crater in the sky. Powerful sovereign aura spread out. Countless of people were startled, their facial expression changed completely as they could all feel the tremendous pressure from the aura.
“What an incredible sovereign aura! The remains of a Great Sovereign is hidden under the mountain. Dammit! How terrifying!”
“My Goodness! I never thought that the rumours are real. This could be the remains left behind by Great Sovereign Batian. Innumerable years had passed. Can’t believe that it is revealing itself now.”
“This is truly the remains of a Great Sovereign. We may have a high chance of getting invaluable treasures of a Great Sovereign if we are able to find the remains. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
After recovering from their brief shock, the people became excited. The opening of the remains of a Great Sovereign only happened once every thousands of years. A Great Sovereign was a supreme existence. It was already considered good enough if one could dig out the remains of an Immortal Venerable. The influence of the remains of a Great Sovereign was just too great. The entire Immortal Domain would surely be affected by this.
“The remains of a Great Sovereign? Can’t believe there’s actually one here.”
Jiang Chen was shocked. He wouldn’t have thought that the indication given by the Great Divination Art was actually this. Sure enough, there was nothing more important than the opening of the remains of a Great Sovereign.
“It’s the remains left behind by Great Sovereign Batian. It seems like the rumours were true after all. Now that the remains have revealed itself. It belongs to those who could find it. Great experts of various major powers will surely be attracted to this place.” Fenghua Zi’s expression had also changed.
“The remains have been hidden under the mountain for so many years. Why did it reveal itself after the appearance of the Immortal Burying Coffin? Could there be a secret connection between the two?” Jiang Chen frowned.
“There’s a secret,” said Fenghua Zi.
“What is it?” Asked Jiang Chen.
“I heard that a pinnacle battle had once taken place on this mountain. It was a fierce battle between Great Sovereign Batian and Empress Nine Yin, whom both fell eventually, but as to why the Immortal Burying Coffin appeared here, I have no idea,” said Fenghua Zi.
Empress Nine Yin, Immortal Burying Coffin, Monarch Mountain, and Great Sovereign Batian!
Wisdom was glinting continuously in Jiang Chen’s eyes. His mind was rapidly thinking about the connection within. Perhaps he had already guessed something.
