Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 523
Chapter 523 - The Last Tribulation Bolt
Jiang Chen was a dexterous alchemist, and he acted with tremendous speed. Right at the very moment when the Nine Solar Holy Water was drawn own, he had taken out numerous herbs that were used to concoct the Nine Solar Lightning-Dragon Pill, then covered them all with the True Dragon Flame and True Lightning Flame, then he started melting those ingredients.
The higher level the pill was, the more difficult it would be to melt down its ingredients, and one would need to go through a tedious thought process in order to concoct it. Even an advanced alchemist would feel a headache at the stop of melting down these ingredients. This was because if there was a single mistake, it would severely affect the quality of the final product. In the fact of a true alchemist, any pill below 100% effectiveness was simply rubbish.
However, this was not a problem for Jiang Chen at all. The Great Soul Derivation skill was a frightening skill, and it had brought him the energy to instantly melt down hundreds of herbs at the same time, and extract the purest essence of every single one. Without such a skill, there was no way he would be able to concoct the Nine Solar Lightning-Dragon Pill underneath Heavenly Tribulation.
Even for Jiang Chen, there was only one chance to concoct the Nine Solar Lightning-Dragon Pill. So, he needed to take this opportunity to concoct as many as possible. Once the Heavenly Tribulation ended, he would lose the opportunity to concoct this pill.
’’What is brother Jiang doing?’’
Inside the Heavenly Saint Sword, Tan Lang's mind was filled with curiosity toward Jiang Chen. The Freezing Hell Jail had nearly completely collapsed, and according to common sense, Jiang Chen should be leaving this place as soon as possible. However, not only did Jiang Chen not do that, he looked like he was going to concoct something underneath the frightening Heavenly Tribulation. Why was he so heavenly defying?
A dignified expression appeared on Jiang Chen's face. Even for him, this would be incredibly difficult. Not only did he need to concoct the pill while enduring the powerful heavenly pressure, he also had to defend himself from the devastating energy that came from the sky.
Popping sounds could be heard from the herbs being burned within the flames, as all kinds of impurities were extracted from them. The combination of the two flames had nearly reached the absolute peak of what any flame underneath the heavens could reach. Underneath Jiang Chen's control, no matter what object he wanted to refine, he could use these flames to burn them down.
Like a golden dragon, the Nine Solar Holy Water was swimming around freely within the scorching flames.
The fifth tribulation bolt finally struck down. The crimson tribulation bolt that had the diameter of a water bucket transformed into a Heavenly Dragon, and emanated a frightening aura. It descended toward Jiang Chen's head, flooding the entire space where Jiang Chen stood.
After this tribulation bolt descended, the entire Asura Palace began shaking. The expressions of Li Tianyang and a few others changed dramatically. They could easily imagine that the Freezing Hell Jail had been completely destroyed. The nodes connecting the Asura Palace and the Freezing Hell Jail had collapsed, revealing a few large holes in the spatial dimension.
’’Damn it, the Freezing Hell Jail is completely destroyed.’’
Even a respectable man like the Great Elder couldn't help but curse, not to mention how unsightly the expression on Li Tianyang's face was. Only the two of them knew about the secret of the Freezing Hell Jail. It wasn't just a simple jail, there were some secrets hidden within. However, no one except them were aware of these secrets.
’’Damn it, if that object is destroyed, I swear I will cut that brat into a thousand pieces!’’
Li Tianyang's eyes shone with a sinister gleam. All he could think about was the Freezing Hell Jail, but unfortunately, as the Heavenly Tribulation was getting stronger, he didn't have the guts to enter even with his Combat Emperor cultivation base. Thus, he was forced to wait outside.
’’Palace Chief, that rascal will never make it through such a powerful Heavenly Tribulation. I'm guessing he will soon run away.’’
The Great Elder said.
’’No worries, we've locked down his aura. Once he exits the Freezing Hell Jail, he will still be somewhere in the Liang Province. No matter where he goes, his death will be inevitable.’’
Li Tianyang said. As the Asura Palace's Palace Chief, a mighty Combat Emperor, it had been a long time since someone made him this angry.
Within the Freezing Hell Jail, Jiang Chen stood in the midst of a storm. The space had shattered, causing to suffer from both Heavenly Tribulation and spatial pressure. If not for the fact that he had mastered the Spatial Shift, he would most likely have died by now.
Even so, Jiang Chen was still severely injured. His body was riddled with wounds and scars;his eyes were bleeding, and his body was swaying in the air, causing him to look like he was about to collapse at any moment. This was the first time he had been injured so badly since he began cultivating the Dragon Transformation skill.
Inside the Heavenly Saint Sword, Tan Lang cried out in shock, but Jiang Chen didn't respond to his call.
’’Damn it, this is bad, I've underestimated the strength of this Heavenly Tribulation.’’
Jiang Chen cursed inwardly. He had previously guessed how strong the Heavenly Tribulation should be, and he should only be in his current stage after facing the sixth tribulation bolt. Although his injuries were rather serious, the Dragon Transformation skill gave him excellent protection, and also an incredible recovery ability, so he wasn't scared of this situation. However, he neglected the possibility of attracting a stronger tribulation after breaking through to the next level. After he broke through to the Second Grade Combat King realm, the Heavenly Tribulation became stronger as well. Although Jiang Chen's ability to defend against it had become stronger as a result of breaking through, but as the space shattered, he was severely injured.
If this went on, Jiang Chen would be in a really bad shape once the final tribulation bolt struck down. What he needed to do now was fine a way to escape from this place. Otherwise, he might really be killed in this place.
Without hesitating, Jiang Chen circulated the Dragon Transformation skill at its maximum speed. After transforming twice, the Dragon Transformation skill now perfectly fit Jiang Chen. Following the circulation of the Dragon Transformation skill, Jiang Chen's injuries were constantly being recovered, causing him to feel much better.
Jiang Chen took a deep breath and flipped his palm, checking on the situation regarding the Nine Solar Lightning-Dragon Pills. A smile was brought to his lips. While facing the fifth tribulation bolt just now, he had extracted a sufficient amount of lightning energy.
If nothing went wrong, this portion was more than enough to produce seven Nine Solar Lightning-Dragon Pills. It was an incredibly heavenly defying pill, and each pill could be used to buy out an entire city, and Jiang Chen had just made seven of them. If this was known by others, the entire divine Continent would be in a tremendous turmoil.
’’In order to complete the concoction of the Nine Solar Lightning-Dragon Pills, I'll need the help of the last tribulation bolt. However, since the Freezing Hell Jail is completely destroyed right now, I really need to escape from this place. Otherwise, I will have no way of leaving later on.’’
Jiang Chen ignored the injuries on his body. He had to face one last tribulation bolt, and it was also the last chance for him to escape. If he waited until the Heavenly Tribulation was over, it would be too late for him to escape. This was because he would be severely injured at that point of time, and would surely be captured by the Asura Palace.
’’Heavenly Tribulation is going to end soon. Keep locking down on that brat's aura, don't let him run away!’’
Li Tianyang shouted out loudly.
Inside the Freezing Hell Jail, the last tribulation bolt was currently forming. This tribulation bolt was twice as big as the previous one. This also meant that this last tribulation bolt was twice as powerful as the previous tribulation bolt. Faced with such tremendous power, even Jiang Chen wore a dignified expression. The Dragon Transformation skill did indeed bring him an incredible recovery ability, but it wasn't enough to offset the devastating strength of this last tribulation bolt. In his current state, it would be impossible for him to endure this last tribulation bolt without being severely injured.
