The array had already started to circulate the moment Jiang Chen entered it. As the formation was circulated, all the dummies were alerted by Jiang Chen’s presence. Every pair of the dummy’s empty eyes were unusually cold. Even though it didn’t emit any kind of cold light, it still gave people the feeling of falling into an ice cavern. The aura carried by these dummies were oppressive. If it was an ordinary expert coming in, he would already be scared to death. It was imaginable what would happen after that.
However, Jiang Chen wasn’t an ordinary expert. It was impossible to suppress him with this kind of aura. In his eyes, these dummies were merely killing machines without a soul. Therefore, there was nothing that he should be afraid about.
“Come on. Show me the exceptionality that you dummies have.”
Jiang Chen unleashed a wave of combat intent. He wanted to see if these dummies could do stop him from staying in the array for 10 minutes.
As soon as his words faded, a dummy lunged at him all of a sudden with incredibly fast speed. Almost as soon as it had just moved, it appeared in front of Jiang Chen and launched a simple punch. But no one should underestimate the punch because it was quick and violent. Jiang Chen couldn’t help but be taken aback despite his agility.
Jiang Chen’s eyes flicked, but he didn’t pay too much attention to it. Even though this dummy had an incredible speed, it was still weaker compared to him. He clenched his fists and launched it out. He had never lost before in a fist fight with brute force.
The two fists collided with each other, creating a large spark that temporarily lit up the corner inside the palace.
That dummy obviously had underestimated Jiang Chen’s strength. Its entire st.u.r.dy body was sent flying away by Jiang Chen’s punch. Its arm was crushed and turned into pieces by Jiang Chen’s brute force.
Jiang Chen shook his head because the Iron Dummy Array was always claimed to be a marvellous creation in Skycloud Pavilion. If these dummies only had such power, he could easily destroy all of them in half-a-minute.
However, what happened next surprised him. The formation around him shook once more. The pieces that was dropped on the floor flew up towards the dummy’s broken arm until the original arm was reconstructed. It now became as new as before, like it had never been damaged.
“Is this for real?”
Jiang Chen was stunned, he suddenly understood what this array meant. It was much more powerful and unusual than he had imagined. The broken or damaged dummies could be restored with the help of the formation. That was to say, these dummies couldn’t be killed. So, the only thing that the candidate could do was to keep on defending for ten minutes and it would be considered a success.
The chilling wind around was getting more and more intense. This was the result of the rapid circulation of the formation. As it continued to circulate, Jiang Chen could clearly feel that the cold Qi coming from the dummy was getting stronger. In other words, the strength of these dummies were improving rapidly.
“I understand it now. These iron dummies will adjust their strength based on the expert who came in. This is where the real terror is. That attack just now was merely a tentative one, which meant that it was just testing my power. Then, it will start to launch the real attack. This is getting more and more interesting.”
Jiang Chen wasn’t a fool. He instantly figured out the key to it. At the same time, he couldn’t help admiring this wonderful array. He had to admit that the person who created this array must be a genius. The truth was that this array was invented by Ouyang He himself, helping the sect find greater talents in the outer sect, however, Jiang Chen didn’t know about it. Additionally, not many people had succeeded in this array. Tian Muyun was one of the minority who succeeded.
The moment the adjustment of the formation was finished, one dummy in each of the position moved. Every one of them moved at a speed that was even faster than before. Seven of them had an incomparably close coordination as they launched their attack on the target from seven different directions.
This was an all-directional attack. Because Jiang Chen was restricted by the formation, it was difficult for him to dodge. It was indeed not easy to deal with such swift and violent attack.
“You all come at the right time.”
Jiang Chen shouted fearlessly. A black light radiated below his feet as he moved equally speedy. He swung out both of his fists and launched seven punches in the blink of an eye, colliding with the fists of the seven dummies.
*Bang!* *Bang!* *Bang!* *Bang!*
A dull sound was heard and huge sparks were produced, but this wasn’t like the former collision. The seven dummies were forced two steps back but were still intact, unlike the previous scene where one arm of the dummy was crushed.
“d.a.m.n! I have no idea what these dummies are made of. How can their physiques reach such a solid extent as the formation continues to circulate and readjust? The endurance of their physique is relatively on par with mine, but such a primitive collision is going to be a blessing in disguise. I can take this opportunity to enhance my physique and foundation.”
Jiang Chen’s compet.i.tive desire had been ignited, deciding to have a nice match with these dummies.
This time, there were fourteen of them instead of seven, doubling the previous number. They attacked from different directions and at a faster pace.
Jiang Chen took a deep breath. While facing so many powerful dummies, if he was replaced by an ordinary expert, that expert would immediately become shaky and s.h.i.+ver in fear. He began to understand why the people outside would describe this formation as a scary one.
“Nine Phantom Wolves.”
Jiang Chen shouted once more, casting out the incredible movement skill. For a moment, the whole array was full of Jiang Chen’s illusions. It immediately disturbed the perception of the dummies, directly disrupting their coordination. This had reduced much of Jiang Chen’s pressure.
“What a good movement skill!”
At the top of a mountain, in the core region of Skycloud Pavilion was another palace. In the palace, a fiftyish elder was staring unblinkingly at the crystal ball that was showing the scene of Jiang Chen in the Iron Dummy Array. He found it a little boring at the beginning, but when he saw Jiang Chen’s Nine Phantom Wolves, he complimented Jiang Chen immediately. Then, he started to pay full attention to the crystal ball. Surely, he had been attracted by Jiang Chen’s way of dealing with the Iron Dummy Array.
