Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 388
Chapter 388 - A Large Teleport Formation
Compared to the previous time Jiang Chen came to the ocean, he was much stronger now, and he was several times faster than before. When he flew at full speed, Nangong Wentian was unable to keep up with him, so Jiang Chen had to carry Nangong Wentian in order to fly at full speed. This really dealt Nangong Wentian a heavy blow, because no matter what, he was still a genius of his generation, a famous young talent from the Nangong family. He had never been convinced by anyone from the younger generation, but when compared to Jiang Chen, the gap between them was too obvious. Jiang Chen was just an abnormal monster.
In just an hour, Jiang Chen and Nangong Wentian arrived close to an island. It was an island with green hills and clear water. White fog hovered around it, causing it to look like a paradise in the ocean.
’’We are at the Blissful Island again.’’
Nangong Wentian said with a smile.
’’Master Blissful helped me a lot. If I have time in the future, I'll come visit him again.’’
Jiang Chen said.
’’Let's hurry up and find the Island of Ice!’’
Nangong Wentian urged.
Jiang Chen once again took out the bronze plate. From it, he found out there was still quite a long distance between where they were and the Island of Ice. They still needed to travel deeper and further into the ocean.
The ocean waves were rolling, and from time to time, some gigantic sea monsters would extend their heads out from the ocean surface and show a fierce look to any creatures passing by. However, all these sea monsters had developed some intellect, so when they sensed the auras of the two men passing by above them, they immediately pulled their heads back into the water, not daring to how any aggressiveness.
Soon, both men arrived at an area with a turbulent current. The water was flowing really fast here, causing many huge whirlpools to form. These whirlpools carried a devastating force, so no sea monsters dared come close.
Right at this moment, the bronze plate started shining brightly. Jiang Chen sent his divine Sense into it and found out they were very close to the Island of Ice.
’’We're here, the Island of Ice is hidden underneath this area. Let's dive in, but be careful of those whirlpools.’’
Jiang Chen's eyes lit up. Both men covered themselves with a Yuan energy barrier, then they dived into the water. After spending some time swimming around the area, they were unable to find any signs of the Island of Ice.
’’Little Chen, this can't be right. The Island of Ice is gigantic, we should have found it by now, but there is nothing here? Furthermore, I thought this area would be frozen, because the Island of Ice is so cold?’’
Nangong Wentian was puzzled.
’’The Island of Ice is in stealth mode. It only appears once ever hundred years, that's why this area isn't frozen and we can't see it. If we could see it with bare eyes, someone else would have already found it before us. Now, we have to use the bronze plate.’’
Jiang Chen raised the bronze plate, then unleashed a bright beam which completely covered it.
A deafening buzzing sound immediately came from the bronze plate, and soon after, the bronze plate established a connection with the Island of Ice. Then, a golden gate suddenly appeared right in front of Jiang Chen and Nangong Wentian.
Right when this golden gate appeared, all the surrounding water was pushed back, and a vacuum zone was formed.
Jiang Chen's eyes lit up. He took the lead and entered the golden gate, Nangong Wentian quickly following after. The golden gate still remained where it stood after both men entered it.
Jiang Chen turned around and waved his hand. In an instant, the golden gate turned back into the bronze plate and fell into Jiang Chen's palm.
’’Haha, this bronze plate is really good!’’
Jiang Chen said with a laugh. He knew there was something unusual about this bronze plate when he obtained it, but he had never thought he could use it to enter the Island of Ice once again.
With a flicker, Jiang Chen and Nangong Wentian instantly appeared right above the Black Altar. The eerie looking Black Altar didn't affect the duo's emotions, it actually made them feel really excited.
’’We actually came immediately to this Black Altar!’’
Nangong Wentian was surprised.
’’The bronze plate is the key to the inner area of the Island of Ice, it's perfectly normal for us to come here with the gate opened up by it. Let's see if we can activate the Teleport Formation.’’
After saying that, Jiang Chen walked straight to the Teleport Formation on the Black Altar. The Teleport Formation looked really old, and if not for the mystical symbols, it might already have lost all use.
It was a black Teleport Formation with a diameter of three meters. There were countless symbols engraved on it. The entire Teleport Formation looked dead, and it seemed like it hadn't been activated for a really long time.
’’Little Chen, does it still work?’’
Nangong Wentian was nervous because the Teleport Formation's bad shape. It would be a big problem for them if it didn't work, as they would have to travel to the Southern Continent by flying, which would take them a few months, and they would be too late to stop anything bad from happening.
’’I think it will work, let's give it a try. Look at the center of this Teleport Formation, there is a socket which has a shape identical to the bronze plate. If my guess is correct, the bronze plate we have is the key to activating this Teleport Formation.’’
After saying that, Jiang Chen took two steps forward and came in front of the Teleport Formation. He stretched his arm and placed the bronze plate into the socket.
A crystal clear 'click' sound was heard when the bronze plate was inserted into the socket. In an instant, the dead silent Teleport Formation started glowing brightly, and countless golden beams shout out from it. It no longer looked like a ruined formation, and the symbols engraved into the formation had become alive and were withering around like snakes.
Cracking sounds started coming from the Teleport Formation, and not long after that, a dimensional crack appeared right in the center of the formation. An ice-cold dimensional force burst out from the crack and blew into Jiang Chen and Nangong Wentian's face, causing their bodies to sway.
Soon, the crack grew larger, and a few minutes later, the crack transformed into a huge dimensional gate. It was nearly three meters tall, and it was blinking brightly.
After that, three golden lines appeared within the dimensional gate. One pointed to the south, one pointed to north, and the last one pointed to the center.
’’Look! That line is pointing to the Southern Continent! The bright light at the end of the line is the Southern Continent!
Nangong Wentian was really surprised. The bright light at the end of the line pointing to the south was the brightest, and it was also where the Southern Continent was located. This was an amazing Teleport Formation that could send them straight to the Southern Continent.
However, Jiang Chen was looking at the center line. That line was much longer than the other two lines, it was at least a dozen times longer. The bright dot at the end of this line was also the largest, it was the size of a human fist. Compared to that, the bright dots that represented the Southern and Northern Continents were only the size of a thumb. The difference was really huge.
’’That is the legendary divine Continent?’’
Nangong Wentian also threw his glance over to the center line and asked in astonishment.
’’That's right, the line leads to the center of the Saint Origin Realm, the divine Continent.’’
Jiang Chen's eyes were glowing. It was his real destination, his final goal.
’’I heard the divine Continent is a vast land. If we added up all the lands from the Eastern, Western, Southern, and Northern Continents, the total size would only amount to 10% of the divine Continent! It is the sacred land of the Saint Origin Realm, and the warriors there are extremely strong, not something the warriors in the four remote continents can compare to! However, in order to reach the divine Continent, one would have to cross countless big territories. The distance is just unbelievable, and that's the reason why all four remote continents are isolated from it. Few can travel from a continent to the divine Continent. However, this Teleport Formation can actually lead us to the divine Continent, this is amazing!’’
Nangong Wentian said with a sigh. As a genius from the Nangong family, he was very familiar with the geography of the Saint Origin Realm. He knew that although the Southern Continent was a huge land, it was only a tiny land when compared to the Southern Continent.
’’Brother, once we've settled everything here, are you interested in going to the divine Continent with me? The world there is much more exciting than the world here.’’
Jiang Chen asked with a smile. He kept looking at the bright dot representing the divine Continent, unable to move his eyes away from it.
Nangong Wentian was shocked by Jiang Chen's question. Similar to Jiang Chen, he dreamt about one day visiting the divine Continent. However, he had no plans of doing so yet. Jiang Chen's words had instantly ignited his passion.
That's right, the divine Continent was where true excitement awaited.
’’Alright, if there is a chance, I'll follow you to the divine Continent. With that, I won't have lived for nothing!’’
Nangong Wentian strengthened his spirit.
’’Let's move on, now is not the right time to go there. Since the Teleport Formation has been activated, let's proceed to the Southern Continent.’’
With a thought, the bronze plate fell back into Jiang Chen's palm, then he threw it toward the bright dot representing the Southern Continent.
In an instant, a strong wind blew by, then a powerful dimensional force covered both Jiang Chen and Nangong Wentian, causing their bodies to feel much lighter, and lifted them. They were then sent into the dimensional gate.
With a flicker, the scene in front of them immediately changed. Jiang Chen and Nangong Wentian appeared in the middle of a dimensional tunnel, and the bronze plate was steadily hovering three meters away from them.
Strong wind kept blowing by. Nangong Wentian threw his glance at the surrounding variegated dimensional turbulence, and couldn't help but tremble.
’’F*k, so this is dimensional turbulence? This is amazing! Just these dimensional tornadoes alone are more than enough to kill me! Without the protection of this tunnel, we would either die or get lost in this turbulence!’’
Nangong Wentian was struck with mixed emotions. This was the first time he had walked among dimensions and experienced the mysterious dimensional environment.
Compared to Nangong Wentian, Jiang Chen was very calm. With his experience as the once greatest Saint underneath the Heavens, he was already used to travelling across different dimensions. When he was at his previous peak, he didn't even need any Teleport Formations. With the Dimensional Shift, he could easily travel a few million kilometers in an instant. Crossing dimensions was just a piece of cake to him.
’’Once you've mastered the Dimensional Laws and broken through to the Combat King realm, you won't feel as amazed.’’
Jiang Chen said.
’’Combat King, that realm seems so far away from me.’’
Nangong Wentian shook his head. Although he was a man with amazing innate talent, and had confidence in himself, he had never thought about breaking through to the Combat King realm, because he wasn't even a Combat Soul warrior now. The gap between his current cultivation and the Combat King realm was too huge.
’’It is not as far away as you imagine. Remember, there is a long path ahead of us, and even if we break through to the Combat King realm, that is just the beginning.’’
Jiang Chen said. Nangong Wentian was not a man without aspiration, and he wasn't a man who lacked self-confidence, he just lacked experience, as he hadn't seen the world yet. A person who has never gone to the divine Continent before just didn't have enough experience and knowledge about how huge this world truly was.
