Chapter 440 – The Dumbest Way of Fighting
The Third Emperor couldn’t help but feel shocked. He wasn’t alone, even all the other men were dumbfounded by Jiang Chen. The Nine Stars Killing Formation was their secret weapon, and they had prepared this specifically for Jiang Chen. However, they never expected Jiang Chen to have such amazing knowledge, enough to let him recognize this formation with but a single look.
So, since Jiang Chen had the ability to recognize the Nine Stars Killing Formation with just a single look, could he also know how to break this formation? At this moment, these extremely confident men started feeling uncertain. After all, this monster in front of them was too miraculous, it was as if everything was possible with him.
However, there was no way they could back out in the current situation. In this group of more than a few hundred men, each and every single one was an elite existence from the Martial Saint Dynasty, and the emperors and the Crown Prince even represented the Martial Saint Dynasty’s face. If this incredible group was forced back by a single person, it would be incredibly shameful.
Furthermore, they still had another secret weapon; the King Weapon in the Third Emperor’s possession. As Late Combat Soul warriors who were only one step away from the Combat King realm, they all knew how frightening a King Weapon was.
“The Nine Stars Killing Formation is just an ordinary killing formation, why are you so surprised that I can recognize it?”
Jiang Chen casually shrugged his shoulders and spoke in a casual manner. His words caused the Third Emperor’s expression to twist. The Nine Stars Killing Formation was an extremely mystical, advanced, and rare killing formation, and it was very difficult for him to prepare it. Not only that, only a handful of people in the Eastern Continent had the ability to prepare this formation.
However, when it came to Jiang Chen, this frightening killing formation just became an ordinary formation. Wasn’t this a huge blow to their faces?
Of course, little to their knowledge, Jiang Chen was not being boastful. Perhaps the Nine Stars Killing Formation was a superb killing formation in their eyes, but in Jiang Chen’s eyes, it really was just an ordinary formation. After all, their experiences were vastly different, and the places they had been to were not the same. Compared to the Five Elemental Killing Formation prepared by those superpowers in the Divine Continent, this Nine Stars Killing Formation was extremely weak.
“Hmph! Jiang Chen, I have to admit that you are indeed a peerless genius who can’t even be found in ten thousand years! However, since you have chosen to be the enemy of the Martial Saint Dynasty, you are destined to walk a path of certain death! Although you possess formidable combat strength, enough to let you kill any Late Combat Soul warrior; when faced with your current situation, do you still think you can escape death? My advice to you is to surrender right now, and you might be spared from all the pain! And, if sincerely pledge your guilt, the Imperial Emperor mighty show enough mercy to retract the Imperial Decree to slaughter all your friends and family.”
The Third Emperor said.
“If I was you, I wouldn’t waste my breath.”
Jiang Chen said. He unleashed his energy in tsunami-like waves from his body, causing his black hair to flutter. His fighting spirit was unparalleled, and his bones were producing cracking sounds. This Nine Stars Killing Formation didn’t make him feel afraid, it actually stimulated his will to fight.
“If that’s the case, we won’t be courteous anymore. Kill him!”
The Third Emperor shouted. All nine Late Combat Soul warriors immediately unleashed their energy at the same time. At this moment, the entire sky above the desolate mountain range was filled with deadly energy waves. Countless rainbow-colored beams shout out from the Nine Stars Killing Formation. Each beam was like a razor sharp blade, and it cut through the air, producing cracking sounds along its path.
The sky was filled with killing intent. The combined force of nine Late Combat Soul warriors, as well as a few hundred frightening warriors continuously supplying them with endless energy. This was indeed a horrifying formation, and it could easily make anyone feel numb just by thinking about it.
In the distance, Daoist Black and Guo Shan raised their heads to look at the situation on the battleground. Both of their faces had turned pale, and even when watching from so far away, they still couldn’t help but tremble and feel suffocated.
“This formation is too strong, let’s back off some more! If not, we might get caught in the crossfire when they start fighting.”
Daoist Black reminded. He pulled Guo Shan and continued moving back. Faced with a battlefield like this, with their strength, they would feel their hearts trembling just by watching from afar. Let alone having to stand right in the middle of the battlefield.
“d.a.m.n it! Nine Late Combat Soul warriors, a dozen other Combat Soul warriors, and over two hundred Divine Core warriors! Perhaps the Martial Saint Dynasty is the only power that can utilize this huge formation! Brother Jiang Chen is really amazing, although he is facing this formation all by himself, I can see no signs of fear on his face.”
Guo Shan said with a sigh. This was an exciting battlefield. Just watching from afar made his blood boil, it felt to him as if Jiang Chen was fighting everyone underneath the heavens all by himself. If Jiang Chen survived today’s battle, his reputation in the Eastern Continent would definitely move up to another level.
“I wonder if Jiang Chen can withstand such a ma.s.sive formation.”
Daoist Black was still worried. Although he knew that Jiang Chen was very powerful, the opponent’s formation was simply too frightening.
“I am very confident in brother Jiang. Sect Chief, let’s have a bet. One day, with Jiang Chen’s reputation, the Black Sect will definitely stand on top of the Eastern Continent.”
Guo Shan’s eyes shone brightly as he spoke. Although it was just a mere fantasy right now, it wasn’t something that was completely impossible.
The Nine Stars Killing Formation had been activated, and all the energy was being channeled into the Third Emperor’s body. Right at this moment, the Third Emperor felt as if his body was about to explode because of all the powerful energy. He raised his head toward the sky and let out a loud roar. This powerful feeling really amazed him.
“Jiang Chen, I don’t believe I can’t kill you in my current form! Take this; Heavenly Imperial Finger!”
The Third Emperor’s voice echoed across the sky like a loud clap of thunder. He pointed his finger toward Jiang Chen and unleashed a finger attack containing tremendous force. A huge golden finger carrying the Imperial might then appeared. This huge finger looked like one of the pillars that supported the heavens, and it had more than enough force to destroy a huge mountain.
“Hmph! You want to use a finger skill against me? Your crude Heavenly Imperial Finger is too weak! Have a look at my Six Solar Fingers!”
Jiang Chen coldly harrumphed as he raised both his hands. His finger shone brightly with a golden light as he forcefully pointed them forward. In an instant, six bright and huge fingers appeared, and then instantly merged into one to then charge toward the Third Emperor’s Heavenly Imperial Finger.
The two huge fingers collided with each other. The shockwaves that came from the collision caused the color of both heaven and earth to change. A mountain underneath was. .h.i.t by the aftershock, and was instantly turned to dust. This level of fighting could no longer be described as just frightening.
Tap, tap, tap…
Hit by the Heavenly Imperial Finger’s tremendous force, Jiang Chen was forced to take a few dozen steps back before he could stabilize his body. He could feel his qi and blood violently trembling within his body; causing him to feel unwell. After merging with the Nine Stars Killing Formation, although the Third Emperor’s strength wasn’t at a Combat King’s level, he had the combat strength of someone just half a step away from the Combat King realm. Jiang Chen was only an Early Combat Soul warrior, so of course, he was no match for this attack.
The situation made the Third Emperor and everyone else feel excited. It looked like the Nine Stars Killing Formation was stronger than what they had expected, as Jiang Chen seemed to be no match for it. However, although they were surprised, they were also shocked. The Third Emperor now possessed everyone’s combat strength, which made him incredibly powerful, while Jiang Chen was only an Early Combat Soul warriors. However, not only did this attack not kill him, it didn’t even seem to hurt him. Just how frightening was this incredibly monstrous youngster be?
“Haha, Jiang Chen, you should surrender now and stop with your useless struggle!”
The Third Emperor started laughing. He felt truly powerful now. It was a feeling that only a Combat King warrior felt; sitting on the top, capable of achieving anything; controlling everything he wanted.
A faint smile appeared on Jiang Chen’s face. This situation was one he had expected, and this was the reason why he set the Crown Prince free and didn’t hurt him. In fact, if Jiang Chen really wanted to break this Nine Stars Killing Formation, he had a lot of methods.
It was extremely easy for him to break this Nine Stars Killing Formation. The synergy between these nine men couldn’t be perfect, so there must be a loophole in this formation. Jiang Chen could cut the connection between the formation and those 300 warriors first, and then defeat all nine men one by one according to their weakness. Within ten minutes, he would be able to break this Nine Stars Killing Formation.
However, Jiang Chen didn’t choose to break this formation; he chose to face it with force. This was because he needed the pressure coming from the formation.
If it was under normal circ.u.mstances, this pressure would be useless to him. However, it was different now, as the Dragon Transformation skill was at the brink of transforming. Back in the Fragrant Sky City, it had given him a thousand new Dragon Marks, but the transformation had yet to finish. This was a rare opportunity for Jiang Chen, so he wanted to use the Nine Stars Killing Formation’s pressure to stimulate the Dragon Transformation skill, causing its potential to erupt underneath the extreme pressure and complete its real transformation.
This was Jiang Chen’s biggest goal.
Initially, Jiang Chen thought that the Imperial Emperor would come here personally. With that, Jiang Chen would have to fight for his life, and complete his transformation under the pressure coming from the Imperial Emperor. However, since the Imperial Emperor was a real Combat King warrior, it was a huge risk to fight with him.
As for this Nine Stars Killing Formation prepared by the Third Emperor, it was just perfect for Jiang Chen, and he really liked it. His current strength wasn’t good enough for him to take on a Combat King warrior, but a collision like this with someone who had the strength of someone just half a step from the Combat King realm was just perfect for him, and he could only get the result he was looking for with this.
In fact, after the collision between himself and the Heavenly Imperial Finger just now, Jiang Chen’s Dragon Transformation skill had begun circulating at high speed.
“What a joke, does it seem like I’m struggling to you guys? Nine Murdering Flood Dragons!”
Jiang Chen showed no signs of fear. Faced with this formidable group, he took the initiative to launch an attack. He waved his arms and unleashed a few deadly flood dragons that swept toward the Third Emperor. He didn’t target anyone other than the strongest Third Emperor. This kind of fighting method was not one the Third Emperor had expected.
According to the Third Emperor’s thoughts, Jiang Chen would certainly choose to defeat each of them one by one, and wouldn’t dare fight him face to face. But unexpectedly, Jiang Chen did fight him face to face. This was the dumbest way of fighting. However, this was basically the most perfect scenario in the Third Emperor’s mind. He wanted to use his mighty strength to kill Jiang Chen on the spot.
It was a violent battle, and after another collision, Jiang Chen had once again been knocked away. This time, blood could be seen on Jiang Chen’s lips, and his aura was in disorder.
In the distance, Daoist Black and Guo Shan were both shocked by what they saw.
“Why is Jiang Chen fighting in such a dumb way? This doesn’t look like his fighting style at all!”
Daoist Black was dumbfounded by what he saw. With his knowledge regarding Jiang Chen, this was definitely not Jiang Chen’s style.
“Jiang Chen has always been a smart man, so can’t he tell that if he keeps fighting like this, he will only end up in a bad position?”
Daoist Black just couldn’t understand.
“Don’t worry, I’m sure brother Jiang has his own reasons for fighting like this.”
Guo Shan’s confidence in Jiang Chen still remained strong.
