First Grade Great Saint
“This bastard does have the nerve! He still dared to rob the treasure in such a circumstance. He must not know what death is.”
“Exactly. It is ridiculous to think that no one dared to hunt him down because of the interference of the Gu Family and the Demon Race. He should know that the heart of blaze is the fruit of the eight major families’ labour. If this really fell into someone else’s hands, where would these families put their face ?”
“Rest assured. He will surely die without a doubt. Currently, the Shi and Huo Family are blocking the Gu Family and the Demon Race, leaving Jiang Chen all alone. He is just a Minor Saint after all. Even if he has heavenly skills, it would be impossible for him to match so many Fifth Grade Great Saints.”
A lot of bystanders were mocking Jiang Chen, but at the same time, they were impressed by Jiang Chen’s courage. It was like there was no limit to his courage, which could also be described as madness. However, in the eyes of so many people, such audacity was a kind of stupidity. It showed how ignorant Jiang Chen was. They didn’t understand why a genius like him couldn’t see the situation clearly, robbing a treasure in such a circumstance would certainly cost him his life.
“It turns out that Brother Jiang has been hiding in the dark, but his situation now is critical.”
Kong Yang stood from a very far distance. He could clearly see the scene from afar; it gave him an unsettling feeling.
“Brother Jiang is truly the hero of the world. The heart of blaze which is also called the Burning Flame precisely matches someone like Brother Jiang. If Brother Jiang refined it, the benefits that he would obtain will be unimaginable. He can also exert the power of the heart of blaze to the fullest. Unfortunately, his current situation is too dangerous. Plus, we are still too weak, there is nothing that we can do besides watching helplessly.” Gu Liufeng sighed as he shook his head.
This was a genius who had been completely subdued by Jiang Chen, but even he knew how dangerous Jiang Chen’s situation was. Among the experts of the Desolate, Dan, Narang and Bin Family, there were 8 Fifth Grade Great Saints and nearly 20 Fourth Grade Great Saints. Under the influence of such combat power, not even the magma dragon could bear it, let alone Jiang Chen.
Flames pervaded the entire battlefield. Destructive energy raged everywhere, making the whole void about to explode. The geniuses of the Gu Family and the Demon Race had been completely contained. On the other side, the experts of the four major families were all ready to attack Jiang Chen. At this point, Jiang Chen could only rely on himself.
Presently, Jiang Chen’s dragon transformation skill had been circulated to its fullest. In the blink of an eye, another one hundred dragon marks were formed. There’s only a hundred more dragon marks left to reach the First Grade Great Saint, but time was his biggest problem now.
His enemies apparently didn’t want to give him time. Huge energy waves that blotted out the sky and covered up the earth swept towards the magma. The energy was boundless. A direct hit would result in Jiang Chen being torn apart.
“Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, don’t let me down. Just help me stop this attack and I’ll succeed in my advancement to the Great Saint realm.”
Jiang Chen gritted his teeth and released the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. Jiang Chen was fully enveloped in the giant blood-red pagoda. The earth devil beast and the devil were currently pumping their energy into the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, hoping to increase its power.
The experts of the four major families struck the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda simultaneously. All of the bystanders stared at the current scene. Kong Yang, Big Yellow and the others noticed that their breathing became difficult. No one knew how powerful this joint attack would be, but there’s one thing that they were sure about, if this attack struck them, they would certainly be pulverized without a doubt.
Jiang Chen was now betting his life on the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. He had placed all of his hopes on it. Although the first floor of the pagoda had yet to completely condensed, it was a dragon’s supreme treasure. In addition, the collision between Big Yellow and the pagoda proved that it had an impressively high defensive capability.
Huge energy waves struck the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. It suddenly shook violently and produced a cracking sound. Lines of cracks were seen all over of its surface. It was about to be broken at any second.
Jiang Chen’s body suffered a great shock, he spurted out blood. The earth devil beast and the devil also had the same reaction and their faces turned very ugly.
“Master, the ancient pagoda is about to crumble. Another joint attack from the experts would certainly cost us our lives.” The earth devil beast said.
“Shut up.” Jiang Chen ordered.
The circumstances was within his expectation. The Ancestral Dragon Pagoda had just been formed recently. It was already considered quite good that it didn’t crumble after receiving the joint attacks of his powerful enemies. This had already exceeded his expectations.
To Jiang Chen, this short amount of time was already enough. He believed that the appearance of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda would faze his opponents temporarily, which would give him sufficient time to break through to the Great Saint realm.
In truth, the reaction from the crowd was just as Jiang Chen expected. Everyone’s eyes fell upon the blood-red ancient pagoda with surprise.
“What is that thing? It can stop our attacks?”
“This little runt does have a lot of treasures! But it would be impossible for this treasure to stop us. Look, it’s about to crumble soon. Let’s attack once more, break his treasure apart and bring him out!”
“Humph! It’s ridiculous that this little beast thinks that a defensive treasure like this can stop us.”
The experts of the four major families were amazed by the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, but it was just temporary. They were ready to launch another attack.
The experts of the Gu Family and the Demon Race were very anxious, they didn’t know what other skills Jiang Chen had at this critical juncture.
At this moment, Jiang Chen’s eyes became brighter than the stars. His expression hardened as he raced against time. The remaining number of dragon marks had been fully condensed. Vast amount of True Meta Stones were consumed extravagantly, and the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda was trying its best to absorb the magma to restore itself.
The Great Saint realm was finally broken through. His Qi rushed out his body like a wild storm and great waves. At this time, the attacks of the experts were about to reach him.
He kept the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. He had spent a lot of effort to condense this pagoda out, once it was broken, he would need to re-condense it again. Also, after advancing to the Great Saint realm, the pagoda trembled violently. The broken parts of the pagoda started to restore gradually at the speed that was visible to the naked eye.
He yelled facing the sky. His body grew a fold larger, making him look like a peerless dragon. He struck out the Five Elemental Combat Dragon Seal. Fifteen powerful dragons roared, charging at the experts of the four major families.
The stormy energy was like a turbulent wave, covering the entire battlefield in a flash. Everyone’s eyes widened in surprise, staring at what’s in front of them. Whether it was his enemies or his friends, all of them were startled.
“Oh my god! What am I seeing here? Jiang Chen has advanced to the Great Saint realm?”
“That’s right. It was the Qi of a Great Saint. It was a little overly powerful that he could refine the heart of blaze in such a short period of time.”
“Haha! Brother Jiang is surely crazy. He actually advanced to the Great Saint realm in such predicament. He was able to kill a Third Grade Great Saint when he was still a Ninth Grade Minor Saint, now that he has advanced to the Great Saint realm, I’m afraid that he is powerful enough to kill a Fourth Grade Great Saint, he may even have the strength to fight an ordinary Fifth Grade Great Saint, but there are eight Fifth Grade Great Saints here. I’m not sure whether he can handle all of them, he has just advanced.”
No one wasn’t surprised. Who would have thought that Jiang Chen would be able to break through to the Great Saint realm in such a short period of time? In everyone’s eyes, Jiang Chen was supposed to be dead without a doubt, there was no chance of survival when he was attacked by so many experts.
However, for those who were always able to create miracles, nothing was impossible. Today, Jiang Chen had once again created a miracle at this critical minute.
“Son of a b*tch, this little beast has really refined the heart of blaze.”
“Damn! He has advanced to the Great Saint realm now, I don’t know if our attacks would be able to kill him.”
“Seal this place now. We can’t let this little beast escape.”
The experts of the four major families were infuriated, to the point that they want to cough up blood. They had spent painstaking effort to eliminate the magma dragon in order to obtain the heart of blaze, but their fruit was eventually snatched by Jiang Chen. How could they accept it?
At this moment, the experts of the Gu Family and the Demon Race stopped attacking, and looked at the centre of the raging stormy waves. Each of their eyes glinted with a strange light.
The chaotic energy dispersed and dissipated. Jiang Chen’s figure reappeared in front of everyone. Currently, he looked like a dragon and a human, but his size had grown larger and sturdier. There was a trace of blood at the corner of his mouth that was clearly caused by the collision just now.
The gap between the Great Saint realm wasn’t small and was different from the Minor Saint realm. Therefore, the half-dragon Jiang Chen could forcefully fight a Fifth Grade Great Saint but it would be virtually impossible for him to kill them. Just now, when he defended the attacks of 8 Fifth Grade Great Saints and 20 Fourth Grade Great Saints, he was inevitably injured.
The experts of Gu Family were delighted, at the same time, surprised. They saw that Jiang Chen had advanced to the First Grade Great Saint and was still intact after the attack of so many experts. This was truly an unprecedented scene.
“Bastard! Everyone, let’s attack again. We must kill this beast today. If we let him continue to grow, sooner or later, he will become a great threat.” The Fifth Grade Great Saint from the Desolate Family gritted his teeth and shouted.
The potential of Jiang Chen started to terrify them.
