Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 2573
Dou Hongming’s Wild Ambition
“You are indeed a lunatic!”
Jiang Chen smiled coldly. He found this Dou Hongming quite impressive because his real intention was completely out of his expectation. Perhaps even Xue Jia did not know about his intention and determination at all. No one would be willing to keep a lunatic who would turn into live ammunition anytime.
“You know that once the Heavenly Palace Exterminating Formation is triggered, the Eight Lineages Silver River would vanish out of existence. The people in the entire Eight Lineages Silver River would also die, including powerful experts and monsters. The entire power of Tian Qi Mountain Range would also be buried here in death.”
Jiang Chen said in a deep voice. He had no doubt that Dou Hongming had such resolve.
“Yes. But how are they related to me? Hahaha. Even though they will die or be injured badly, I can still stay alive and well. Even though I have conceded to the Eight Lineages Silver River once, do you really think that Xue Jia would be able to manipulate me? I have done all these with a clear goal. Because of you, an intruder, I have no choice but to kickstart my plan earlier than I have expected.”
Dou Hongming’s eyes were ruthless, looking at Jiang Chen with disgust.
“I am from the Battle God Family, will I become a guest of Xue Jia who is an evil monster? It’s ridiculous. My formation is unparalleled. Even if you have broken two of my formations, I am going to see how you are going to break the third one.”
Dou Hongming was very confident because he knew that Jiang Chen would not court death himself.
Jiang Chen’s face looked solmen. It was not difficult for him to break the third formation. However, once it was broken, he was not that sure what would come next. The Cyan Light Arhat Formation was bound closely together with the Heavenly Palace Exterminating Formation. Once the third formation was shattered, the Heavenly Palace Exterminating Formation would definitely destroy the entire Eight Lineages Silver River. It was fine if the formation was used to attack outsiders and enemy, however, the most terrifying part of the formation was its self-destructiveness. The Heavenly Palace Exterminating Formation could devastate the entire Eight Lineages Silver River and no one would be able to escape here.
Both Jiang Chen and Dou Hongming were not foolish. At this moment, they exchanged a glance. Jiang Chen was not afraid of death, however, he could not ignore all the lives in the entire Eight Lineages Silver River. It would be an unparalleled great catastrophe.
If Jiang Chen really destroyed the third formation, his Dao spirit would definitely be greatly affected. Surging Heaven Dao was not something that should be used to manipulate human’s life and death. It's humanity that made humans precious and different in the world. Slaughtering could not solve every problem. Those who simply slaughter and take away one’s life were also destined to fall into a thousand misfortunes. There were so many innocent lives here, so Jiang Chen could not just neglect them and break the third formation. He could not do that as it was his nature.
Dou Hongming, on the other hand, did not care about this at all because he was only responsible for his own action and for his own purpose. He had only himself in his eyes.
At this moment, Xue Jia and the Old Toad were still fighting fiercely. The Old Toad was not afraid of death at all; hence Xue Jia was in a passive position. The Old Toad pressed and wrestled against Xue Jia even at the cost of his life. Two Divine King Realm experts used their utmost effort in this battle. One could imagine how terrifying and intense the battle was. A chaos was happening in the Eight Lineages Silver River right now, and both of them were already injured quite severely in the battle.
Although Xue Jia was more powerful in terms of strength, the Old Toad had been targeting him without giving him any mercy. He had been wrestling Xue Jia with his life. Xue Jia was a bit impatient in the battle now. It’s known that the Blue-eyed Azure Flower Toad was very dreadful. If one was poisoned, one was doomed to be defeated. That was why Xue Jia did not dare to be reckless at all.
“Master Dou, you must stop this bastard. If you help resolve the crisis, I will definitely repay you.”
Xue Jia said in a deep voice. The Old Toad took another aggressive strike while a ferocious silver mad dragon soared into the sky. The dragon had a glowing black horn on its head. The silver dragon was actually Xue Jia's real body. Unihorn Snow Dragon was a sub-division of the Dragon Clan. Although it was not considered as a true dragon, it actually contained a part of the bloodline of the Dragon Clan. That was why it was called a silver dragon.
The silver dragon was wrestling the green Old Toad, breaking the glacier apart. The mightiness of a Divine King was really terrifying.
“Are you here to take the risk of challenging me?”
Jiang Chen looked at Dou Hongming who looked very calm and relaxed at this moment.
“So what? If you don’t break the third formation, you would be trapped here forever. If you break it, then the Heavenly Palace Exterminating Formation will be triggered. The entire Eight Lineages Silver River will fall into hell because of you. Hahaha. Do you feel like being a traitor right now? Do you still want to be the hero? You shouldn’t have come to the Eight Lineages Silver River. However, you came here without any hesitation. If you kneel down and kowtow to me right now, I might consider sparing your life and cultivate you to be my disciple. Of course, you have to show me all of your formation before that.”
Dou Hongming was jealous of Jiang Chen’s talent in formation, and he knew that Jiang Chen definitely had some treasure behind him. Otherwise, he would not have this mastery over formations. Although the Thousand Killing Blades Formation and Heavenly Profound Guard Formation were not his trump cards, it was already very difficult for those who were under the Divine King realm to break them. However, Jiang Chen was able to do it.
Jiang Chen was hesitating as he was trying to find a better way to resolve this crisis. It would be perfect if he could break the third formation and save more people together.
Jiang Chen was not overflowing with kindness, however, he was not willing to involve so many innocent lives in this catastrophe.
“You are running out of time.”
Dou Hongming shrugged.
“You wouldn’t have any chance to break the third formation in 30 minutes because the formation will disappear itself later. There would be another formation that would surround the entire Eight Lineages Silver River. You know what kind of formation this is?”
Dou Hongming smiled coldly. He was like a terrifying schemer who brought an end to people. That was the only way he felt proud and satisfied.
Jiang Chen understood that the relation between the Cyan Light Arhat Formation and Heavenly Palace Exterminating Formation was not simple at all. It was something specifically designed and mastered by Dou Hongming.
Inside the ice cave, there were many Divine Tools and treasures.
Yan Qingcheng stared at Xue Ying coldly without even blinking her eyes.
