Chapter 237 – Delivered from Oppression
The aura was getting stronger and stronger, Jiang Chen was completely covered in a golden light, which made him s.h.i.+ne like a brilliant sun, forcing people to take they eyes away from him. In the end, even Wu Jiu was shocked by him.
“Kaka, I told you this guy was going to make it!”
Big Yellow was laughing out loudly. The worry on his face had finally disappeared.
“He is only breaking through to the Divine Core realm, but he is unleas.h.i.+ng such a powerful aura! I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t witnessed it myself! Brother Jiang is indeed an incredible peerless genius, his future achievements are going to be limitless!”
Wu Jiu had seen all kinds of geniuses, each and every single one of them were amazing, but when those amazing geniuses were compared to the young man in front of him, the gap between them was not small. Wu Jiu himself was also a peerless genius. If he wasn’t, then he wouldn’t have gotten so far. When he broke through to the Divine Core realm, his aura wasn’t even ten percent as strong as the aura Jiang Chen was unleas.h.i.+ng right now.
“No wonder Big Yellow has such high confidence in brother Jiang, his current aura is more than enough to compare with those Late Divine Core warriors.”
Wu Jiu pressed down the excitement in his heart as he stared at Jiang Chen.
At this moment, the Heavenly Core in Jiang Chen’s Qi Sea had completely transformed. Numerous mystical patterns appeared on it, and it was covered by countless blood red Dragon Marks. It looked like a myriad of stars surrounding the moon.
Eight hundred Dragon Marks had been completely formed, Jiang Chen had broken through to the Divine Core realm, reaching a higher realm and alt.i.tude. Besides this, Jiang Chen’s potential had once again been stimulated, and his foundation was much more solid and richer now. Therefore, Jiang Chen didn’t exit his secluded cultivation, but instead began absorbing a huge amount of demon souls.
“What is he doing now?”
Wu Jiu was shocked.
“He is going for more powerful combat strength.”
Big Yellow said with a smile. With his experience, he could easily understand Jiang Chen’s current condition. After breaking through to the Divine Core realm, 800 Dragon Marks could no longer satisfy Jiang Chen. At this moment, Jiang Chen was absorbing huge amounts of energies and forming new Dragon Marks, increasing his combat strength.
Jiang Chen had 800 Dragon Marks right now, and an Early Divine Core. If he wanted to break through to the Mid Divine Core realm, he would need to double his amount of Dragon Marks, a total of 1600 Dragon Marks. Only then would he be able to break through to the Mid Divine Core realm.
Jiang Chen had a huge amount of demon souls and devil souls, as well as a lot of crystal cores. However, although the quant.i.ty was huge, Jiang Chen’s demand was ma.s.sive at the same time. Cultivating the Dragon Transformation skill required consumed enormous amounts of energies, and as Jiang Chen’s cultivation advanced, the required energy to form new Dragon Marks would be more and more. Now, forming a new Dragon Mark would require ten times the energy compared to before.
“Let’s not worry about that now. After all, my foundation is extremely strong and solid now, I can temporarily absorb a large amount of souls to form new dragon marks.”
Jiang Chen thought to himself. After that, without hesitation, he began transforming all the demon souls, devil souls and crystal cores in the purest energy with the help of the Dragon Transformation skill and absorbing it.
In just 20 minutes, Jiang Chen had utilized the ma.s.sive amount of energies and formed another 200 Dragon Marks, which gave him a total of 1000 Dragon Marks. But, these newly formed Dragon Marks had consumed a lot of energies, and he had used up nearly half of his demon and devil souls. The rest of them could at most give him another 200 Dragon Marks, and he would need a lot more in order to break through to the Mid Divine Core realm.
“The level of souls I have are too low, most of them are Early Divine Core souls and Heavenly Core souls, some of them are Mid Divine Core souls, and there are only 2 Late Divine Core souls. With my current condition, those Heavenly Core souls are worthless to me. Looks like I’ll need to find more mid and Late Divine Core souls. Although this method allows me to quickly increase my strength, I’ll have to be careful. Two hundred new Dragon Marks are actually quite a lot, and I’ll need to take some time to settle them down.”
Jiang Chen thought to himself. This method of levelling up was extremely brutal, and even Jiang Chen himself dared not use it without restrictions. After breaking through, he definitely needed to take some time to digest the energy properly and stabilize his cultivation.
“d.a.m.n it, buddy, we only have ten minutes left, hurry up and finish your cultivation!”
Big Yellow kept pus.h.i.+ng.
Right after Big Yellow’s words left his mouth, Jiang Chen immediately opened up his eyes. His gaze was fierce, pretty terrifying.
“Perfect, Big Yellow, you’ve done great. Not only have I broken through to the Early Divine Core realm, my cultivation base has complete stabilized, not like those rookies after having just broken through to the Divine Core realm. Let’s delay no longer, activate the Spiraling Defense Mechanism and make it repel with the natural defense mechanism, I’ll attack its weak spot.”
Jiang Chen instantly stood up from where he stood, the combat strength of 1,000 Dragon Marks had separated him from those rookies who had just broken through to the Early Divine Core realm. With his current combat strength, not only Mid Divine Core warriors, he could even kill Late Divine Core warriors with a single strike. A peak Divine Core warrior like Daoist Black was no match for Jiang Chen at all.
Big Yellow’s ears stood up. Using his head, he pushed the Spiraling Defense Mechanism and walked step by step toward the natural defense mechanism.
“Brother Jiang, you had such an incredible aura even though you were just breaking through to the Divine Core realm, astonis.h.i.+ng! If I hadn’t witnessed it myself, I wouldn’t have believed it!”
Wu Jiu patted Jiang Chen’s shoulder, he couldn’t help but praise Jiang Chen.
“Brother Jiu, you seem much younger.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile. Wu Jiu had become completely different compared to his previous dying state, he was br.i.m.m.i.n.g with energy now, and was full of vigor.
“Cut the chitchat, the Spiraling Defense Mechanism can only attract the natural defense mechanism’s force temporarily. Buddy, you’ll have to carefully sense the weak spot of this natural defense mechanism, we only have one chance.”
Big Yellow seriously reminded. Both Jiang Chen and Wu Jiu’s expressions became tense, especially Wu Jiu’s. He was the most nervous person here. Being trapped here for ten years; he wanted to leave this s.h.i.+thole more than anyone else.
Big Yellow pushed his head against the disc shaped Spiraling Defense Mechanism that was emitting rainbow colored lights. Slowly, he pushed it toward the center of the natural defense mechanism.
Right as the Spiraling Defense Mechanism touched the natural defense mechanism, a ma.s.sive repelling force was unleashed, and Big Yellow was pushed back by this ma.s.sive force.”
“d.a.m.n it! This master dog is going to f.u.c.king…”
When Big Yellow was pushed back, he felt like he was the most miserable dog in the world. Why did he always have to meet with all the unlucky matters?
In front of the natural defense mechanism, Jiang Chen was unleas.h.i.+ng the Great Soul Derivation skill, raising his senses to the most sensitive level. The Spiraling Defense Mechanism had caused the natural defense mechanism to focus all its force on one point, and that was the ma.s.sive force that had pushed Big Yellow away.
At this moment, Jiang Chen had sensed a weak spot below the natural defense mechanism with his senses. Without any hesitation, he punched the weak spot with all his strength. At the same time, Wu Jiu also punched the same time, helping Jiang Chen.
A violent impact! A tsunami like repelling force pushed Jiang Chen and Wu Jiu back a couple of steps.
Jiang Chen had smashed the weak spot on the natural defense mechanism, causing a huge crack on it to appear. Also, the Spiraling Defense Mechanism had disappeared.
“Big Yellow, hurry up, this natural defense mechanism can heal itself!”
Jiang Chen pulled Big Yellow’s ear, and with extremely fast speed, he dashed into the crack on the natural defense mechanism. Wu Jiu followed closely behind.
Right after they had left the s.p.a.ce, the crack on the defense mechanism had started slowly recovering.
“f.u.c.k, we were almost trapped in there forever! Big Yellow, you’ve done a good job this time, beautifully done!”
Jiang Chen pressed on Big Yellow’s head with both hands. Using a different kind of method to praise Big Yellow for his excellent work.
“Get lost, daddy is feeling real tired in both body and soul, don’t touch me.”
Big Yellow struggled hard and pushed away Jiang Chen’s big hand as he gazed at Jiang Chen with a pair of angry eyes.
“HAHAHA, DADDY IS OUT! FINALLY!! DADDY HAS LEFT THAT s.h.i.+THOLE!!!”
Wu Jiu extended both his arms sideways and let out long cries toward the skies. He kept laughing out loud without stop, with tears in both eyes. Jiang Chen and Big Yellow stared at the hectic Wu Jiu, both of them had relieved expressions on their faces. They could really relate to Wu Jiu’s emotions right now. They had been trapped in the Poisonous Miasma s.p.a.ce for two and a half months, and they knew very well hos terrifying the place was. But Wu Jiu, he had been trapped there for ten years, and finally, he was able to see the outside world again. There was no way he wouldn’t be happy.
After some time, Wu Jiu finally finished his laughing. With big steps, he walked in front of Jiang Chen and Big Yellow. Without any hesitation, he bowed deeply toward both of them.
“Brother Jiang, Big Yellow, Wu Jiu wants to thank you for saving my life! This great kindness will exist in Wu Jiu’s heart for all of eternity!”
Wu Jiu said with utmost sincerity. In the entire Martial Saint Dynasty, there were only a handful of people whom deserved a bow from Wu Jiu.
“Brother Jiu, we’re brothers, cut those formalities, I don’t like them.”
Jiang Chen said. Both men looked at each other and laughed.
“Alright, hurry up and check, where are we right now?”
Big Yellow reminded.
Only now did both men react. They found that they were in a wilderness, not the devil cave where they originally came from. Demon roars could be heard from far.
“This should be some place within Inferno h.e.l.l… There are only ten days until the doorway to the outside world opens up; I think we should go back to Inferno City.”
Wu Jiu said.
“Only ten days?”
Jiang Chen felt anxious. Ten days was too short, and up until now, he still had no idea where the Earth Devil was.
“Buddy, give me something to eat, I need to replenish my energy.”
Big Yellow said.
Without saying anything, Jiang Chen simply threw a storage ring fully filled with natural essences toward Big Yellow. Big Yellow had done an excellent job this time, and he had used up a huge amount of his energies. He deserved the reward.
Looking at the storage ring, Big Yellow instantly became happy. He took out all the natural essences and begun his big feast. All of this were great tonics for him, and it was exactly what he needed right now.
“Brother Jiu, do you know where can I find the Earth Devil?”
Jiang Chen asked.
“Earth Devil? Why is brother Jiang looking for it?”
Wu Jiu looked at Jiang Chen and asked.
“Let me be frank, the reason I came to Inferno h.e.l.l was to look for the Earth Devil. One of my brothers is in a life endangering situation, and only the Earth Devil’s devil soul can save his life. I’m here to find the Earth Devil and kill it. I hadn’t expected that three months would flash by without me having any idea where to find it.”
Jiang Chen explained.
“I know where the Earth Devil is.”
Wu Jiu said
