Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 873
Layers of Obstacles
“What? Did this man really refined the bloodline of the White Tiger Divine Beast?”
“Dammit! When did the White Tiger appear in Saint Origin World? And why didn’t I know about it? The White Tiger is one of the Five Divine Beasts. The benefits it would bring to our race will be boundless if we can obtain its mighty and powerful bloodline.”
“The astonishing thing was that he was able to refine the bloodline of a Divine Beast. This sounds very unimaginable because the human and demon race were two totally different races. Even if a human could refine it, the process would need to take a long time and it would be in a very slow pace, the tedious and taxing procedure makes the absorption of the bloodline impossible. It seems like this brat really cultivates a special cultivation technique.”
“So what if that’s the case? He is only a human after all. Even if he has refined and absorbed the bloodline of a demon beast, he won’t be able to get pass the Suspended Tower.”
Many people were shocked that Jiang Chen could absorb the bloodline of the White Tiger Divine Beast. It could already tell how lucky Jiang Chen was. It only proved that he's a human with great luck.
However, Jiang Chen was still a human after all. It would be virtually impossible for him to be acknowledged by the gate of the Suspended Tower despite the Divine Beast bloodline in his body.
Lang Xingtian frowned.
“Patriarch, in that case, why not let him have a try? If he can enter the Suspended Tower along with Big Yellow, it will provide a great help to Big Yellow’s safety. I remember that Jiang Chen also have a transformation technique. He could turn into a demon-like creature after the transformation.”
Peacock King said.
“No. He isn’t part of the Demon Race. He isn’t qualified to enter the Suspended Tower.”
A Fourth Grade Great Saint standing beside Heavenly Leopard King said.
“Humph! As long as he is acknowledged by the gate, he is qualified to enter the Suspended Tower. This is the rule of the Suspended Tower and our ancestors.”
Peacock King let out a cold humph.
Lang Xingtian waved his hand to stop the argument. He glanced at the gate of the Suspended Tower, then to Jiang Chen before he speaking. “Jiang Chen, try to enter the gate, see whether it acknowledges your identity.”
“Many thanks to Patriarch.”
Jiang Chen held his fists at Lang Xingtian. He turned and flew towards that illusory gate. He believed that the dragon transformation art would be able to help him enter the tower. Otherwise, his True Dragon Blood would become the object of ridicule to many. Besides, this was very important to Big Yellow. If he couldn’t enter the tower, Big Yellow would be doomed.
He stood in front of the gate of the Suspended Tower. Many gazes were fixed on Jiang Chen. They were curious to know whether this human would be able to get pass the bloodline recognition of the gate.
Jiang Chen could feel traces of primitive and ancient Qi coming out of the gate. He felt like he was seeing the door of the supreme sacred land of the Demon Race.
He gasped a deep breath and began circulating the dragon transformation art. Every blood-red dragon mark surged out of his body in an illusory dragon form. These dragons looked very real and served as a foil for Jiang Chen, it made him look very divine.
A mighty Qi was unleashed as soon as the dragon marks emerged. Some weaker experts of the Demon Race were petrified and felt the urge to worship him.
“He is very powerful…he is just a human but his Qi is just like the Qi of the king of thousands of beasts. It gave me the feeling to worship him.”
Someone exclaimed in disbelief.
Jiang Chen raised his palm slowly. The blood-red illuminating palm was stamped on the illusory door.
At this instant, the door of the Suspended Tower began to tremble intensely. The twelve-meter large door slowly enlarged to thirty meters large as it trembled. Meanwhile, the tower behind shook intensely as well, and glowed with a brilliant light. It was like the tower had reached the same frequency as Jiang Chen
“Look, the door suddenly enlarged. What is happening? Nothing like this has ever happened before even after existing for so long. Today, it grew larger, two times larger. What did that Jiang Chen do?”
“Does this indicate that their Qi have the same frequency? That means Jiang Chen’s Qi and the tower’s Qi has achieve a resonance. I can’t believe that Jiang Chen passed the bloodline recognition. This is undeniably bizarre.”
“That’s right. This is a miracle. A human could actually be acknowledged by the Suspended Tower and cause such great movements to the tower. This is the first and probably the last that it would happen to the Suspended Tower.”
No one was able to calm their emotions, this was a scene that they hadn’t seen before. This was certainly the first time, but many of them knew that this great change would surely benefit their race.
Currently, Jiang Chen was stunned and excited as well, he could feel the Suspended Tower calling him. No, it should be something inside the Suspended Tower that was summoning him. Despite the strangeness of the signal, he could still feel a faint trace of familiarity.
“There is something that I need inside.”
Jiang Chen held the excitement in his heart. He couldn’t imagine that he would obtain some great treasure inside. Although he had no idea what was summoning him, he knew that this was going to be a fortuitous meeting. He was sure that the thing inside wasn’t the fragment of his Heavenly Saint Sword because the strength of the summoning wasn’t as strong as the fragment’s.
After regaining his composure, he returned to Lang Xingtian and Peacock King’s side. He then held his fists and said, “Patriarch, I have already passed the bloodline recognition of the tower. I am good to go with Big Yellow now.”
“Alright, Jiang Chen, I have never thought that you had such a great connection with the Demon Race. I am now permitting you to enter the tower with Big Yellow.”
Lang Xingtian didn’t try to hide his delight. He would be relieved of his worries for Big Yellow’s safety if Jiang Chen came along.
At this time, someone opposed. It was Heavenly Leopard King. This was the first time that he spoke. His tone didn’t sound courteous or respectful at all despite talking to the patriarch.
“Even if he has passed the bloodline recognition of the tower, he is still not qualified to enter the tower because he is still an outsider. I am the first to go against the idea of letting him in.”
Heavenly Leopard King was firm in his words. His main target was Big Yellow. His plan was already perfect. He didn’t want it to be messed up by anyone. Although Jiang Chen wasn’t an opponent for Leopard Wei, he had witnessed how Jiang Chen killed Desolate Liang. If Jiang Chen and Leopard Wei battled, the fight would certainly shake the entire place, which was not suitable in the Suspended Tower. Once the Suspended Tower was damaged even by the slightest bit, it would infuriate the spirits of their ancestors. No one would be able to shoulder such a massive responsibility.
“Leopard King, don’t forget about the rules of the Suspended Tower. As long as the participant can pass the bloodline recognition, the participant has the eligibility to enter. Furthermore, Jiang Chen achieved a resonance with the Suspended Tower. This is something that has never happened before. Now, even the Suspended Tower had acknowledged him, what rights do you have to stop him? Also, don’t forget about your status. You are merely a Great Elder, the decision of the Demon Race is not up to you to decide.”
Peacock King raged. He didn’t put even the great Heavenly Leopard King in his eyes.
“Peacock King, a Great Elder has the right to interfere in crucial decision making. If you guys are letting this outsider in, I absolutely disagree it.”
Heavenly Leopard King was resolute. It seemed like he wasn’t going to give in.
“Leopard King, you are being rude.”
Lang Xingtian was angered. As the patriarch of the Demon Race, he must always maintain his dignity in public. If he acted nonchalantly towards Heavenly Leopard King’s defiance, his reputation would be affected.
Heavenly Leopard King frowned as Lang Xingtian’s fury was rising. Today was a big event for the Demon Race. It wouldn’t be nice to see a fight today, but if he allowed Jiang Chen to enter the Suspended Tower, it would affect his plan.
Today was his best chance to get rid of Big Yellow. If Big Yellow wasn’t eliminated today, it would high likely be that he would discover some great benefits in the tower. Then, he would gain a stable status and position in the Demon Race. After that, it would be extremely hard for him to eliminate Big Yellow.
“Patriarch, besides getting the approval of the Suspended Tower, you also need all of our agreement. As long as Jiang Chen could defeat me, he would be allowed to enter the tower.”
Leopard Wei said, declaring a direct challenge to Jiang Chen.
When this words were spoken, Heavenly Leopard King’s eyes sparkled. He darted a praising glance towards Leopard Wei. His solution was without a doubt the best to their current situation. He was confident in Leopard Wei’s strength which was only half a step away from the Great Saint realm. He was sure that Jiang Chen would be no match for Leopard Wei. If the battle occurred outside the tower, it wouldn’t disrespect the Suspended Tower. With the presence of Lang Xingtian and Peacock King, Leopard Wei’s desire to kill Jiang Chen wouldn’t be realised, but it was good enough to defeat Jiang Chen because that meant his plan would not be affected.
“Yes, have a battle. Let us see his power.”
“As long as he can defeat Leopard Wei, we will be fully convinced to let him enter the Suspended Tower.”
“This is a good idea. We can’t simply let an outsider to enter our scared land.”
In that instant, many people of Heavenly Leopard King's party voiced out their thoughts. As the sound was getting louder, it became impossible for Jiang Chen to skip this battle.
Peacock King was slightly angered.
“Alright, I will accept his challenge.”
Before Peacock King could say a word, Jiang Chen took up the challenge. The current situation was crystal clear to Jiang Chen. He was destined to face layers of obstacles if he wanted to enter the Suspended Tower. Since Leopard Wei wanted to challenge him, he wouldn’t refuse to accept the challenge. Besides, he wanted to experience the power of a genius who was half a step away from Great Saint. An opponent like Desolate Liang couldn’t arouse his fighting interest. Only an opponent like Leopard Wei could ignite his combat intent.
“Jiang Chen, you have to think this through. Leopard Wei is the 11th genius on the Sky Ranking. He is only half a step away from Great Saint realm and isn’t comparable to Desolate Liang.”
Peacock King reminded.
