The Insane Ancestral Dragon Pagoda
The Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation was a legendary major tribulation; the tribulation that are faced by immortals. As such, no tribulation such as this had ever occurred across the Saint Origin World. The most dangerous tribulation in this world was merely the Nine Major Tribulations. Today, the Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation befell upon Jiang Chen the moment he advanced to the Great Saint realm. The strange view of the dragon and phoenix, and their rumbling roars and howls had shocked countless of people. Regardless of what the outcome was, his name would certainly be included in the history of Saint Origin World. It was a moment that would go down in history when both the dragon and phoenix appeared in a tribulation.
“Heaven defying! Jiang Chen is too heaven defying! One should know that the heavenly tribulation entirely depends on how heaven defying the person is. Only people who are absolutely heaven defying can initiate the Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation.”
The elder of the Heavenly Leopard Race gazed at the dragon and phoenix and sighed.
“It is true that Big Yellow possessed the Divine Beast Bloodline and has obtained the Totem Divine Seal. However, the tribulation that he initiated was merely the Nine Major Tribulations. Compared to Jiang Chen, Jiang Chen is overly heaven defying. However, the Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation is horrifyingly deadly. It won’t be easy to survive through it.”
“Exactly. Such a scary major tribulation would undeniably put the person’s limit to the test. It’s so destructive that the person would end up dead in the tribulation. Een if the person survives, he will certainly fall into a very serious state of weakness, which is very disadvantageous considering the situation that Jiang Chen is in.”
“Unfortunately, we are unable to provide any help. Jiang Chen could only depend on himself. He has been creating miracles along the way. Today, he has obtained the heart of blaze which is tremendously beneficial to him. So, I hope that he will create another miracle again.”
The Great Saints of Gu Family and Demon Race let out sighs as they spoke. They were amazed by the Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation and at the same time, worried for Jiang Chen. There was no way that they would feel relaxed about his situation. It was true that the view of the Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation was breathtaking. However, no one would dare to imagine how powerful the tribulation was. Even if Jiang Chen survived the tribulation, he would surely end up in a very bad condition. So, how could he defend himself against the six major families at that time?
But then again, they could only worry for him. There was nothing that they could do to help. Not even a Ninth Grade Great Saint could help resolve the tribulation, only the individual who initiated the heavenly tribulation could do it. If others attempted to interrupt the tribulation, they would be captured by the heavenly tribulation and be burnt to death by lightning fire.
Beneath the thunderstorm, Jiang Chen lifted his head, both of his blood-red eyes glared at the dragon and phoenix above, a smirk was revealed at the corner of his mouth.
“Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation… The dragon transformation skill is really extraordinary. It actually initiated the Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation. Anyway, this major tribulation is going to push my cultivation to the Second Grade Great Saint. After that, I will kill all of them.”
Jiang Chen said in his heart. As a matter of fact, this was really beyond his expectation. He had anticipated that the tribulation this time would be scarier than the Devil Dragon Tribulation when he advanced to the Minor Saint realm, but not to this extent.
Jiang Chen’s Qi fluctuated as he yelled at the lightning clouds.
The dragon and the phoenix roared and howled, looking at Jiang Chen with ruthless eyes. The heavenly force would never tolerate a person who dare challenge the power of Heaven. Anyone who provoked the existence of the heavenly force would die in the lightning tribulation. This was what the Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation was for; it was used to destroy everything.
Thunder resounded throughout the sky, as lightning flashed, causing countless of sparks to condense. The body of the dragon and the phoenix grew larger. Then, each of them spat out a mass of fire; It was the thunder fire, the flame that was formed using lightning, similar to Jiang Chen’s True Thunderfire.
However, these two masses of True Thunderfire contained endless heavenly Qi that made its power unimaginable, charging down at Jiang Chen.
At this moment, the two floors of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda that were already condensed, vibrated violently and let out a harsh buzzing sound. Jiang Chen was stunned when he saw the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda automatically rushed out of his body, crashing into the two masses of True Thunderfire.
As the two masses of thunderfire collided with the pagoda, it shook violently, but what surprised everybody was that the two masses of thunderfire were straightaway engulfed by the pagoda.
Electricity flashed on the surface of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, with dense electrical webs everywhere, making it look very divine. Furthermore, after absorbing the two masses of thunderfire, the third floor started to condense.
Jiang Chen was so delighted by this scene that he almost cried out.
“Haha! This is insane.”
Jiang Chen laughed. The Ancestral Dragon Pagoda claimed that it could refine and absorb any kinds of energy from Heaven and Earth, but he didn’t expect it to absorb the energy of lightning. He was supposed to experience the Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation by himself, but the experience was forcibly robbed away by the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda.
Anyway, Jiang Chen’s bloodline was also connected to the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. This explained why the pagoda went forth voluntarily. It doesn’t matter if it was the pagoda or Jiang Chen that experienced the tribulation, it would be the same as they were one unit.
Roars and howls were heard again. Two thicker lightning struck. Each lightning was like a giant serpent, carrying unknown amount of power.
Originally, Jiang Chen was worried whether the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda could handle it, but after it engulfed the two masses of lightning and remained intact, it relieved his concerns. It seemed like the defensive power of the pagoda grew stronger after the two floors were condensed. Naturally, he felt happy when the pagoda started condensing the third floor under the tribulation.
More importantly, Jiang Chen’s concerns about the Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation and the numerous powerful enemies waiting to kill him had become unnecessary. With the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, not only could it help him defend against the heavenly tribulation, it could also absorb all the energy of the lightning strikes, much to his benefit.
No matter from which aspect, this was a very awesome thing and he couldn’t help but feel exhilarated.
Due to origin of the pagoda being linked to Jiang Chen, the huge amount of lightning energy absorbed would also benefit him. Although the benefits were limited, it was still better than nothing.
However, the lightning energy that entered the pagoda was making the earth devil beast and the devil suffer. Both of them were beings with extreme devil Qi. They would be suppressed by the Supreme Yang Qi of the lightning because it was their natural enemy.
“Earth devil beast, devil, quickly hide yourselves in the spatial ring.”
Jiang Chen opened the spatial ring to let them in.
“I have the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda as my protection while undergoing the tribulation. I will now enter the pagoda to receive the lightning energy within it, and at the same time, study the heart of blaze.”
Jiang Chen’s body fluttered; he entered the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. At this moment, he switched back to his human form, sitting cross-legged in the electrical webs and began to put his concentration on the heart of blaze. He had already completely refined the heart of blaze, but his heart has not integrated with it yet. He believed that he would gain something good if he completely integrated with it.
When the Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation felt that they couldn’t do any harm to Jiang Chen, they got furious and began to bombard the pagoda with greater strike, but it didn’t concern the pagoda at all, it just absorbed any types and amount of energy.
The scene stupefied everyone, making them forget that their mouths were left open. They couldn’t believe what they were seeing.
“Look! What kind of treasure is that blood-red pagoda? How could it possibly help Jiang Chen defend against the heavenly tribulation? This is freaking me out.”
“Yeah. It’s terrifying. The ancient pagoda didn’t seem powerful earlier, it was even almost broken by the joint attack of the experts. However, it has already restored the damages that it suffered. Where did Jiang Chen get this treasure from? Isn’t this akin to madness, the fact that it can even defend against the heavenly tribulation?”
“Damn! Why does this little beast have such luck? I thought that he would certainly going to die under this Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation. Now, it seems like he is probably going to survive this tribulation.”
“Humph! Even if he survives, so what? He will surely become weak, even if he doesn’t fall into a weakened state, killing a First Grade Great Saint is just going to be as easy as stepping on insects.”
The experts of the six major families had the urge to grind their teeth. They had thought that Jiang Chen would die the moment they discovered that it was the Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation. They wouldn’t have imagined that Jiang Chen would have such a trump card that could help him defend against the heavenly tribulation.
“Holy sh*it! This pagoda is too awesome!”
Big Yellow was shocked. He already knew it the moment he saw the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda came out. As a matter of fact, he was quite worried for Jiang Chen when the Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation appeared despite his confidence in Jiang Chen. Now it seemed like he doesn’t need to worry for him anymore. The Ancestral Dragon Pagoda was going to help Jiang Chen withstand everything.
“This guy is really a monster, and he has created another miracle. However, what kind of treasure that ancient pagoda is.”
“Jiang Chen is a man with great fortune. A person like him will certainly have a boundless future ahead of him. It seems like building a rapport with him is truly the right and wise choice. In the near future, when the Saint Origin World falls into great chaos, Jiang Chen will surely play the most important role in that situation.”
“That’s right. Now, we don’t have to worry about what kind of damage the Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation would do to him. We just need to watch what kind of miracle he would create after the tribulation.”
The Great Saint experts of the Gu Family and Demon Race breathed a long sigh of relief. With this kind of treasure, the tribulation wouldn’t do him any harm regardless of how powerful the tribulation is. He was now sitting in the sea of lightning, as if he was bathing himself. He didn’t feel a tiny bit of discomfort at all.
Jiang Chen didn’t take have the effort to care about how astonished the others felt. All his focus had been placed on the heart of blaze. While absorbing the energy of lightning, he was integrating his heart with the heart of blaze to reach athe perfect state. He was also waiting for a miracle to happen.
