“Haha! Jiang Chen, you’re dead! Without the heavenly tribulation, you have lost your protective amulet. You are just a puny First Grade Great Saint, how will you defend yourself against a Sixth Grade Great Saint?”

“That’s right, you devilish maniac! Everyone will kill you!”


Seeing the arrival of the high rank experts of the major six families, the previous experts of those families got excited. When they thought of their comrades dying under the lightning tribulation, it compounded their hatred towards Jiang Chen. They were grinding their teeth and their eyes turned reddish. If looks could kill, Jiang Chen would have been dead a long time ago.

“Jiang Chen, retreat now!” An elder of the Heavenly Leopard Race urged.

“That’s right. Jiang Chen, if you flee now, you may be able to escape.” The elder of the Gu Family warned that if he didn’t leave now, he would lose any chance of escaping.

“It’s too late now.”

Jiang Chen smiled, but there wasn’t a single trace of nervousness on his face. He had no intention of escaping at all. If he wanted to flee, he could have done it at any time using the Flaming Wings even if he was besieged by all the Sixth Grade Great Saints. The sudden emergence of these Sixth Grades sparked up a new strategy in his mind.


More than a dozen Sixth Grade Great Saints appeared, hovering in the sky. When their gaze fell upon their own group, their expression changed drastically when they noticed almost half of them were gone.

“What happened?” The patriarch of the Desolate Family, Desolate Yuntian, demanded an answer.

A Fourth Grade Great Saint elder hurried over to his side and said with a heart-wrenching expression, “Patriarch, it was all because of that Jiang Chen. He robbed the heart of blaze and advanced to the Great Saint realm and used the heavenly tribulation to pulverize half of the experts of the families.”

“What?!’ Desolate Yuntian said as he raged.

He had never been so furious before. All his Qi as Sixth Grade Great Saint was unleashed; his cold eyes glared at Jiang Chen.

“Patriarch, we also have lost half our people.” An elder of Huo Family said, which infuriated Huo Batian even more, urging him to rush over and shred Jiang Chen into pieces.

Meanwhile, the patriarchs and great elders of Bin, s.h.i.+, Narang and Dan Family was enraged too. The casualties alone was so bad in this trip to the ancient battlefield, the casualties they suffered was so. To them, the losses they had suffered were tremendous.

“Little beast! I hate myself for not killing you on the Spiritual s.p.a.ce Mountain.”

s.h.i.+ Haotian’s arms made a cracking sound.

“Having killed so many of my people, you won’t be able to escape even if you have wings!” Narang Changtian said and bellowed.

“It was a big mistake that we didn’t kill him on the Spiritual s.p.a.ce Mountain.”

The patriarch of the Dan Family, Dan Yangtian, felt regrettably in pain. He was like the other patriarchs, making the greatest mistake for not killing Jiang Chen during that time on the Spiritual s.p.a.ce Mountain which had left a scourge behind. During this period of time, not only had they provided Jiang Chen time to grow, but also gave him the opportunity to kill their geniuses. Presently, a large portion of their people were struck dead by the lightning tribulation and the main culprit of this disaster was Jiang Chen. Thus, what reason did they have to let Jiang Chen live?

“Jiang Chen, we, Bin Family harbors no grudge against you. Then why are you so ruthless towards our people? The patriarch of Bin Family, Bin Longtian, shouted at Jiang Chen.

“I’m afraid you have to ask your people regarding that. It was them who had attacked me first. Are you telling me that only your people can kill me and I am not allowed to retaliate?” Jiang Chen said in a flat tone.

He had made plenty of enemies anyways and making another family his enemy did not concern him anymore. From that day onwards on Spiritual s.p.a.ce Mountain, he had grown to the point where these people couldn’t crush him as easily as last time. With his current cultivation grade, he no longer feared these high rank experts.

Gu Xuantian and Lang Xingtian didn’t speak a word but they stood on Jiang Chen’s side. The Great Saints of the Gu Family and Demon Race had told everything that had happened to them via divine sense. Even Gu Xuantian and Lang Xingtian were shaken by such drastic incidents.

The Dragon Phoenix Major Tribulation… 20 Nine Solar Lightning-Dragon Pills… It was a pity that they had not witnessed these events. In addition, after knowing that Jiang Chen gave their families eight Nine Solar Lightning-Dragon Pills each, both of them felt worthy of allying themselves with him.

What was more important was that when they first decided to establish connection with Jiang Chen, they were attracted to his potential and talent, but they never had thought that Jiang Chen would grow so drastically and turn the entire Pure Land upside down within such a short amount of time.

“Jiang Chen, we will help you to stall them and buy you time to escape.” Gu Xuantian spoke to Jiang Chen in divine sense.

“Exactly. You’ve created a huge trouble today. I’m afraid not even our families can protect you, but we can buy you some time. Time is of the essence.” Lang Xingtian’s voice flowed into Jiang Chen’s ears.

There was another great elder of Gu Family and including Heavenly Leopard King, there was a total of four Sixth Grade Great Saints among them, but the opponent’s side has ten Sixth Grade Great Saints. Even if four of them were pros, they wouldn’t be able to defend against so many high ranked Great Saints.

“I’m afraid it’s too late to run now.”

Jiang Chen shook his head. He didn’t have any intention of escaping. Of course, that didn’t mean he was confident enough to kill Sixth Grade Great Saints. He had a new plan, and that plan was one he must execute when the chance was presented to him.

“Gu Xuantian, Lang Xingtian, do you two really want to protect Jiang Chen? Because we won’t give in no matter what.”

Desolate Yuntian snarled at Gu Xuantian and Lang Xingtian.

“Of course.”

Gu Xuantian’s Qi dominated the atmosphere. It would be a disgrace if he chose to stay back at this time. Furthermore, retreating wasn’t how Gu Family treated their friend.

“Cut the c.r.a.p! In that case, we’ll fight. We are going to kill this little beast by any means necessary!”

Huo Baotian was infuriated and readied for the battle.

“Okay, send four men to handle Gu Xuantian and the other three. The rest, surround Jiang Chen, we have to kill this puny beast today.” s.h.i.+ Haotian stated who had immidiately charged at Jiang Chen.

“Listen up everybody! Get out of here right now. Jiang Chen! Find a chance to escape.”

Gu Xuantian cried facing the people of Gu Family and Demon Race. This was going to be the battle between Sixth Grade Great Saints from which the excess waves from the battlefield would be unbearable to most of them. Many would even die if they stayed within the range of the battle waves.

*Hua La…*

The people of the Gu Family and Demon Race retreated to a distance out of the range of the battlefield. They simply couldn’t get close to it because it would put their lives at risk and cause unnecessary casualties.

Jiang Chen did not attempt to leave because he was certain that he was the main target. It would only bring disaster to the Gu Family and the Demon Race if he tried to flee. Besides, the experts of the major six families had sealed the entire void preventing him from escaping.

A smirk grew at the corner of his mouth. He certainly didn’t even think of escaping and now, it was the perfect time to execute his plan.

Gu Xuantian blocked s.h.i.+ Haotian’s way. Two patriarchs of two major families collided. Huo Batian rushed over, engaging in a fierce battled with Lang Xingtian while Heavenly Leopard King and the great elder of Gu Family fought against the other two elders of other two families.

Desolate Yuntian, Narang Chang Tian and the other four locked their eyes on Jiang Chen, emitting thick murderous intent from their bodies.


In a flash, Jiang Chen turned into his half-dragon form. He fled in frenzy with his fluttering dragon wings. Although it wasn’t his plan to flee, he had to make it look like he was attempting to run away.

“Humph! Trying to escape? It’s too late for that. Today, if we let you escape from our grip, we are going to lose all of our reputation.”

Dan Yangtian let out a cold humph. Six people vanished instantly. When they reappeared, they surrounded Jiang Chen.

“Puny beast, where do you think you’re going?”

Desolate Yuntian said as he grinned coldly.

“What should we do now? Jiang Chen has been surrounded by six Sixth Grade Great Saints. He won’t be able to escape now and we can’t doing anything to help him.”

“Dammit! How can this happen? Jiang Chen is seriously in danger now.”

“His opponents are far too strong. The only thing we can do is to watch what will happen and pray that Jiang Chen can create a miracle once again.”


The people of Gu Family and Demon Race were extremely worried. Anyone would be killed in a siege attack of six Sixth Grade Great Saints. Jiang Chen had lost the advantage of the heavenly tribulation, so he wouldn’t be able to deal with a Sixth Grade Great Saint, let alone dealing with six of them altogether.

Kong Yang, Leopard Wei, Kong Yu and Gu Liufeng’s faces began crinkling with worry. Even Big Yellow couldn’t suppress his worries for Jiang Chen, given his current situation.

“Haha! This little beast is going to die. I would like to see how arrogant he can still be.”

“Yeah, after killing so many of our people. It won’t be enough even if he die 10,000 times. Not just his physical body must be eliminated, his soul too must be fully pulverised.”

“Kill him! Kill him now!”


In comparison to the fears of the Gu Family and Demon Race, the other six major families were feeling thrilled to see how Jiang Chen would die.

Having six high ranked Great Saints surrounding him, he had become like a fish in a barrel, totally incapable of fleeing.

“Six dignified patriarchs have surrounded me, a mere First Grade Great Saint. Don’t you all feel ashamed at all?”

Jiang Chen’s voice modulated to serious tone. To the six of them, they obviously felt frightened by Jiang Chen’s remark.

“Little beast, you have audacity to speak to us? It looks like you’re about feel terrified. After killing so many people, it’s your turn now.” Desolate Yuntian said coldly.

“Why are you spending so much time with this little beast? Kill him, straight away.”

Energy was rolling in the palms of Narang Changtian, he was ready to strike Jiang Chen at any second.

“In my opinion, we can’t let this little beast die too easily. He must die in pain.” Dan Yangtian said maliciously.

“Haha! Do your best, show me what you can do! I, Jiang Chen, am not afraid of you at all.” Laughed Jiang Chen aloud.
