Chapter 395 - Giving a Helping Hand
Nangong Wentian instantly nodded his head. He wouldn't hesitate to expose all his secrets to Jiang Chen, because he had absolute trust in Jiang Chen. He also knew that Jiang Chen wouldn't steal this skill from him, as the skill Jiang Chen was cultivating was much stronger than his.
In an instant, Nangong Wentian started adjusting his form, then he unleashed powerful Yuan energy from his body. His clothes and hair started fluttering, and a thin layer of golden light covered his body.
Following the appearance of the golden light, Nangong Wentian's energy started changing. Initially, the golden light was swift and fierce, but slowly, his aura started becoming heavy as a gigantic mountain. As his energy rose, the entire courtyard started shaking because of the tremendous energy.
After that, an ancient like aura started leaking out from his body. Jiang Chen looked at Nangong Wentian in an examining manner without blinking his eyes.
’’What a mystical skill, it actually carries an ancient aura, as if it's inherited from the ancient era. Looks like Brother Nan has found something really amazing. This skill has a lot of power, and it can constantly increase his aptitude, giving him a limitless future!’’
Jiang Chen kept praising this skill inwardly. Originally, he thought that Nangong Wentian's cultivation skill was just an ordinary skill in the Saint Origin Realm, and that it was at most a high ranked skill. However, judging from what he was sensing now, it was an extraordinary skill.
’’Brother Nan, unleash your skill completely, don't hold anything back;show me all your energy!’’
Jiang Chen shouted. His voice was like a loud clap of thunder hitting Nangong Wentian's ear, causing Nangong Wentian's body to instantly sway.
Nangong Wentian dared not hesitate, and replied. He had no idea that what was happening to him right now was something that many people dreamt about;receiving guidance from the once greatest Saint underneath the Heavens. This was simply the luckiest day of his life so far.
Nangong Wentian's energy started trembling, and the golden light leaking out from his body had become thicker, as if it was made from pure gold and had completely solidified.
Nangong Wentian finally unleashed his energy to the highest stage he possible could. A deep roar resounded from his body, and at the same time, a 30 meter tall golden elephant appeared behind his back. Although it was just an illusionary image, it seemed extremely mystical in Jiang Chen's eyes.
The body of this illusionary elephant was fully covered with golden scales, and sharp spikes could be found all over its long trunk. It had two long tusks that looked like a pair of mighty blades, and it looked extremely sharp and very ancient. The elephant's eyes were cloudy, yet dignified, and at the same time, it carried an aura of a supreme king, causing it to resemble a natural king and give anyone a desire to submit to its superiority.
’’This is the Ancient Barbarian Elephant, the king of all elephants! I never thought Brother Nan's Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants skill could visualize this Ancient Barbaric Elephants, this is amazing!’’
Jiang Chen's experience was incredibly vast, so he was able to recognize this Ancient Barbarian Elephant with a single look. It was a true king beast, a supreme existence.
’’But too bad, Brother Nan has only comprehended the surface of this Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants skill, and he can only visualize the Ancient Barbarian Elephant's image which only gives his strength a heavy feeling, but he hasn't focused on the Ancient Barbarian Elephant's king aura, this is where his bottleneck lies.’’
Jiang Chen thought to himself. With just one look, he had found what Nangong Wentian's bottleneck was.
’’Brother Nan, you can retract your energy.’’
Jiang Chen said.
Nangong Wentian's body swayed a little. In an instant, he was like a leaking balloon as he retracted all his energy.
’’Little Chen, when I'm cultivating the Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants skill, I feel as if my strength has reached its maximum level, and it's really difficult for me to increase it. I am completely stuck at this bottleneck, and have no idea how I can break through it.’’
Nangong Wentian said with a frown on his face.
’’Brother Nan, your condition is perfectly normal, it's because you haven't found the true key to cultivating this Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants skill.’’
Jiang Chen explained.
’’The true key?’’
Nangong Wentian was startled.
’’That's right. I saw the image of the elephant you visualized just now, it is actually the true Ancient Barbaric Elephant. This ancient elephant is the king of all elephants, a born king beast. When you're cultivate this skill, you only focus on the strength of ten thousand elephants, but you've never tried to study the energy of the elephant. This energy is a kingly energy, an aura that comes from the source, and it is also the essence of the Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants skill. Thus, when you continue cultivating this skill, you just can't focus on the strength that it gives you, you need to feel its inner source, try to feel the Ancient Barbaric Elephant's kingly energy. Once you find that energy, you will be able to completely visualize the image of the Ancient Barbaric Elephant, and with that, you will be able to break through this bottleneck. Once you've done so, this skill will evolve, and the benefits you'll receive are beyond your current imagination.’’
Jiang Chen continued his explanation.
’’Focus on the source energy.’’
Nangong Wentian was startled for a moment. He had been cultivating the Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants skill for so long, and all this time, he had only thought about it as a skill that gave him tremendous strength. He had never thought about the inner parts of this skill. Now, with Jiang Chen's guidance, he suddenly saw the light, and felt enlightened.
’’Haha, I understand now! I never truly understood the essence of this Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants skill, that's how it was! Little Chen, I never knew you had such good observation! What you told me just went straight to the heart of my bottleneck, I think I've found a way to break through now!’’
Nangong Wentian heartily laughed out as immense excitement filled his face. The feeling of finding a way to break through a big bottleneck was really rare, so he couldn't control his excitement.
’’I believe you can do it.’’
Jiang Chen patted Nangong Wentian on the shoulder.
’’Little Chen, there isn't much time left for us, I need to enter secluded cultivation right away and try my best to break through this bottleneck before the duel begins, and become a Combat Soul warrior. You can just rest in the Nangong family during this period of time. As the Nangong family's special guest, you can go anywhere you like within our family grounds.’’
Nangong Wentian said.
’’No, staying here will have no benefits for me, I need to go out and travel around. While you're here cultivating to break through to the Combat Soul realm, I too have to find a way to break through to this realm.’’
Jiang Chen replied with a smile. The Southern Continent was a land filled with demon beasts, it was a wild land compared to the Eastern Continent. He could use these couple of days for training, and find a way to break through to the Combat Soul realm. He didn't come here for sightseeing, and putting aside the critical situation the Nangong family was now facing, he still had a bunch of problems back in the Eastern Continent he needed to solve, and those problems pressured Jiang Chen to improve his cultivation as soon as possible.
’’Alright. I know you're a person who can't sit quietly. Besides, with your strength, you can go anywhere in the Southern Continent without fear.’’
Nangong Wentian nodded his head. He wasn't surprise by Jiang Chen's decision. If Jiang Chen truly decided to stay back in the Nangong family, he would be truly surprised.
’’En, let's delay no more, I'll leave right now. Let's see which of us will break through to the Combat Soul realm first.’’
Jiang Chen said with a smile
’’I think I'll be the first. I now know the correct way to cultivate the Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants skill, and it won't take long before I break through. You better break through to the Combat Soul realm as well, otherwise you won't be able to help me with the duel.’’
Nangong Wentian said. Although Jiang Chen had formidable strength, he still couldn't represent the Nangong family in the third match unless he broke through to the Combat Soul realm.
After that, Jiang Chen simply started flying in a random direction, immediately leaving the Nangong family.
Jiang Chen was enjoying the Southern Continent's scenery along his way. Honestly, the land here was much more beautiful than the Eastern Continent's land. Soon, half a day passed by. Jiang Chen had approached a seemingly boundless stretch of magnificent mountains. It was a mountain range that covered more than 5,000 kilometers of land, and countless mountain peaks were in sight.
There were a few tribes residing in this mountain range. With Jiang Chen's divine Sense, he could easily see the structure and buildings of the nearest tribe. It was a classical tribe.
’’En? Something is happening there.’’
With his sensitive divine Sense, Jiang Chen looked over toward a tribe not far away from him. After that, he moved his body and flew toward that tribe.
Lianyun Castle was the name of this tribe. Right at this moment, sounds of crying and yelling resounded outside the tribe.
’’No! We don't want to go to Demon Palace!’’
’’Tribe Chief, please save us, we don't want to accompany those demon beasts!’’
’’I'd rather die!’’
Three young girls were crying their lungs out. All of them looked to be in their mid-teens, they had delicate faces and were considered beautiful. Right now, they were surround by a couple of men dressed in black robes. Amongst these black robed men, three of them were tightly holding onto these girls, and no matter how hard these girls struggled, they were unable to escape from them.
Strong demonic aura was leaking out from these men. They were clearly not humans, but demon beasts who had transformed into human shape.
Right now, a group of men from Lianyun Castle stood opposite of these men in black. All of them were angrily gnashing their teeth. Furious expressions filled their faces, because they could only watch their people bringing brought away by these evil men with no ability whatsoever to stop them. It hard for ordinary people to understand how they felt right now.
’’Demon Palace, don't go too far! For the past two years, we have given you many resources, so why are you still taking our people away?’’
A man standing at the forefront said. He was a fat man in his fifties, and the Lianyun Castle Tribe Chief. Right now, both his eyes had turned red, and he was clenching his fists tightly. As these peoples' Tribe Chief, watching his people being taken away by these evil beasts brought him an unbearable feeling.
’’Jiejie, old man, tomorrow is our third master's birthday! Being able to sleep with him is these three girls' honor, and if our third master is happy with their service, he might return some of the treasures you gave us last time! This is good news for you all, so why are you still crying here?!’’
The leader of the men dressed in black said with an evil smile on his face.
’’No! I don't want to sleep with that demon, I would rather die!’’
Hearing that she was going to sleep with their third master, one of the three girls immediately cried out.
That man in black gave the crying girl a slap.
’’Bastard, let go of my sister!’’
Right at this moment, a young man jumped out from the crowd of people from Lianyun Castle while carrying a longsword in his hand. Although he looked quite young, he was actually a Late Heavenly Core warrior.
This young man's eyes had turned red, and it looked like he was about to lose his control and attack these men dressed in black.
