Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 914
The Embryonic Form of Ancestral Dragon Pagoda
The scene shocked Jiang Chen and Big Yellow completely. It was both terrifying and mysterious. It was a sacrificial altar piled with the corpses of Saints. The air was filled with the Qi of death, but behind this horrifying scene was a land of treasure. Although these corpses were left dead for a long time, there were many bodies of Saints being heaped up. A single body could accumulate unimaginable amount of energy. With so many corpses stacked together, the term 'unimaginable' would no longer suffice to describe the overall energy accumulated within these bodies.
However, what bothered Jiang Chen was why the blood talisman would choose to appear in such a place. Could it be that the blood talisman was interested in the bodies of the Saints?
’’Little Chen, this is too frightening. What on earth is this blood talisman? It gives me a very abstruse feeling.’’ Big Yellow retracted his neck a little. This was the first time he saw such a scene, which made him feel somewhat terrified.
’’How on earth would I know about this?’’ Jiang Chen shook his head.
The intention of the blood talisman was very mysterious. Even though he had guessed that they were likely brought here deliberately by the blood talisman, he had no clue what was the connection between this place and the blood talisman.
At this moment, the blood talisman that led them here rushed towards the altar. Jiang Chen could feel the excitement from it as it rose towards the altar. That excitement wasn't from meeting the other blood talisman but because of the corpse-made altar.
The two blood talismans converged and emitted countless blood-red light that wrapped the entire sacrificial altar. The two blood talismans rotated in high speed, trying to merge together, but it seemed something was missing, disrupting the merger.
’’Little Chen, did you see that? These two blood talismans want to merge together, but it seems something invisible is blocking them from merging,’’ said Big Yellow.
’’I know now. I am the factor that prevents them from merging. One of the blood talismans has already been refined by me and the energy within has also been absorbed by me which means my blood was already connected to it. As for the other blood talisman, I haven't refined it. Thus, as soon as I refine that blood talisman, both blood talismans will be able to merge completely, and then all the problems will resolved.’’
Jiang Chen's eyes lit up. In fact, he was a little excited in his heart. He had already anticipated that the combination of the two blood talismans would bring him unexpectedly great results. Currently, the sacrificial altar had made the other blood talisman more mysterious and he knew that this mystery was related to his prediction. So, as long as he refined the other blood talisman, he would be able to know the secret in the mystery as to why would the blood talisman come to such a place?
Jiang Chen gestured with his hands, signaling the blood talisman. The two blood talismans immediately flew away from the altar and towards him. Jiang Chen caught them by his hand and immediately felt a cordial feeling. Last time in the Inferno Hell, it was impossible for him to control it, but with his current cultivation strength, it did not show any resistance, especially the blood talisman that he refined in the Suspended Tower.
’’Big Yellow, guard my surroundings. I will refine the blood talisman now.’’ Jiang Chen said to Big Yellow.
’’En.’’ Big Yellow nodded. This was a critical moment where he wouldn't dare to be sloppy.
Jiang Chen sat cross-legged on the ground, integrating two blood talismans into his body and his dragon transformation art began to circulate frenziedly. At the moment, the blood talisman danced wildly as if it could sense the presence of the dragon transformation art. Then, it saw an image of a dragon flickering in the blood talisman. The dragon was roaring overbearingly at the sky.
The blood talisman seemed to contain the blood of an ancestral dragon. Traces of energy flowed out and diffused into Jiang Chen's limbs and bones, and at the same time, new dragon marks began to form under the circulation of dragon transformation art.
This was the stimulation in the bloodline, which was very beneficial to Jiang Chen. Almost a minute later, a thousand dragon marks had been condensed, making a total of 76 000 dragon marks in his body, and this amount was exactly the threshold to advance to the Ninth Grade Minor Saint.
A powerful Qi shot out of his body. Crazy amount of high grade True Meta Stones were being refined and absorbed. Soon, Jiang Chen's cultivation grade had reached Ninth Grade Minor Saint and his combat strength had improved tremendously.
However, after reaching the Ninth Grade Minor Saint, the number of dragon marks didn't stop increasing. Another one thousand dragon marks were condensed very quick, making the total dragon marks 77 000.
Nevertheless, the advancement from Minor Saint realm to Great Saint realm wasn't easy. The normal advancement for every grade in Minor Saint realm was 2 000 dragon marks, but advancing to the Great Saint realm required 4 000 dragon marks. In other words, Jiang Chen must hit the threshold of 80 000 dragon marks in order to advance to Great Saint realm. As such, it was impossible to think of using the blood talisman to break through into the Great Saint realm.
The blood talisman was completely refined. The two blood talismans then merged together. It was the most intimate fusion. After that, the speed of circulation of dragon transformation art increased by a few times. This circumstance truly had stirred up Jiang Chen's excitement.
’’Haha! I didn't expect that the fusion of the two blood talismans could prompt the dragon transformation art into a metamorphosis again. The feeling is really great! I just don't know what great combat technique this metamorphosis will bring me.’’ Jiang Chen couldn't help but laughed. This was a situation which was out of his expectation and it had given him the biggest surprise. One should know that every metamorphosis of the dragon transformation art would bring Jiang Chen unimaginable benefits. At the very least, he would acquire some kind of great combat dragon seals.
In the first metamorphosis of the dragon transformation art, Jiang Chen had acquired True Dragon Palm and True Dragon Fire. In the second metamorphosis, he had acquired Azure Dragon Five Steps. In the third metamorphosis, he acquired the Five Elemental Combat Dragon Seal. He was full of anticipation of what he would acquire in the fourth metamorphosis.
Moreover, the metamorphosis would also bring tremendous benefits to his cultivation grade. For instance if Jiang Chen could condense another two thousand dragon marks after the metamorphosis, the total of dragon marks in his body would reach 79 000 and he would reach the peak of Ninth Grade Minor Saint.
At the same time, a message appeared out of nowhere in his mind: The Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. It is the Supreme divine Weapon of true dragon. Once this ninety-nine storey Ancestral Dragon Pagoda is successfully condensed, it can initiate apocalypse and scorn the universe...
This was about the legend of a Supreme divine Weapon and the ways to condense it. Before Jiang Chen could comprehend it thoroughly, the two blood talismans rushed out of his body.
*Swoosh* *Swoosh* *Swoosh*
Numerous beams of blood-red lights were emitted from the blood talismans. Every beam of light was incomparably dazzling. The blood talisman disappeared as the rays of light increased, as though it had turned completely into one of the rays of blood-red light. Then, a blood-red ancient pagoda appeared, or one should see it as an embryonic ancient pagoda, it was an illusory image.
And even if it was illusory, it gave people an enormous feeling of shock. The top of the ancient pagoda went straight into the sky. The ancient and noble Qi that was exuded from the pagoda aroused people's impulse to worship it.
’’My god, what's this tower? Although it is only an illusory image, it is more honourable than the Suspended Tower. Furthermore, this ancient pagoda gives people a feeling of everlasting that is greater than the sky, it is as though it is above all the laws and principles of nature.’’
The spectacle sent him an extreme degree of shock.
’’Ancestral Dragon Pagoda.’’ Jiang Chen murmured.
He knew that the fusion of the two blood talismans had formed the embryonic form of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. This time, the metamorphosis of the dragon transformation art had given him the method to condense this pagoda. In other words, he would have to condense every floor of this pagoda in the course of his future cultivation.
’’According to the secret of Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, there is only one way to condense this out. That method is by absorbing energy. Absorb any kind of energy that can be absorbed. There is virtually nothing in the Heaven and Earth that the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda can't absorb. In which case, I have found the purpose of this pile of bodies.’’
Jiang Chen's eyes sparkled. He used his mind to will the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda up to the altar above the pile of corpses. Then, a blood-red light pillar permeated from above. The countless amount of energy from the bodies were being sucked by the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda.
Afterwards, all the corpses collapsed and turned into energy. Even though the bodies were dead for a very long time, the energy inside them were unimaginable and vast, especially when these energies were from the corpses of so many Great Saints.
In just a few blinks, the several meter tall corpses were all absorbed by the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda.
A loud rumble was heard from the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. The last floor of the pagoda was starting to materialize, but this amount of energy only allowed it to condense half of the first floor. The half-materialized first floor was covered with a blood-red wall. The surface of the walls was carved with stands of blood-red dragon marks that illuminated a dazzling light. The ancient Qi coming from it sent an enormous pressure to anyone nearby.
’’Oh my! What the hell is this Ancestral Dragon Pagoda? Only half a floor was condensed after using the energy of all these Saint corpses? This is overly heaven defying.’’
Big Yellow flopped down to the ground while he was still gaping at the pagoda. He wasn't the only one who had such a reaction, even Jiang Chen had widened his eyes. There were ninety-nine floors in this pagoda. He initially thought that this pile of corpses could help materialize eight or ten floors but the result was that only half of a floor was condensed out.
Jiang Chen and Big Yellow now understood why the blood talisman had chosen to appear in this place. This sacrificial altar was specially prepared for the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda.
Facing this kind of situation, it gave Jiang Chen the urge to faint. The first floor had taken so much energy just to materialize half of it. No one could imagine how much energy it would take to materialize ninety-nine floors. It would certainly be an astronomical figure.
The dragon transformation art that Jiang Chen cultivated was originally a cultivation that required boundless amount of energy. Now with this Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, it would make him a true vampire that sucked energy.
Nonetheless, the increasing difficulty of the condensation of the floors indicated that the power of this ancient pagoda would become stronger as well. Anyway, Jiang Chen wasn't in a hurry about materializing it because it wouldn't do any good by being hasty. The materialization of this pagoda was a long process and it definitely couldn't be achieved within one or two days. In any case, he had obtained inestimable benefits after refining the blood talisman.
