Chapter 342 – Heavenly Saint Sword’s Rebirth!
The ancient black altar looked like a black mountain, it had just appeared out of nowhere, and black fog hovered around it, causing it to look extremely eerie. Above the altar, there was a black gate which led to an unknown place.
The people in the crowd looked at the gate, trembling. They couldn’t help but feel somewhat scared when looking at it.
“What an eerie gate! If I didn’t know that this was the gate that leads us outside the Island of Ice, I would have thought it might bring us to hell!”
“This is the Island of Ice’s exit. Since there’s only one gate here, I don’t think there will be any dangers at all.”
Many people felt their souls trembling as they looked at the gate. All of them had stopped right below the altar, none had the courage to enter first.
Right at this moment, many warriors suddenly appeared in the center of the Island of Ice. Each of them wore the same puzzled expressions.
“What happened? I was fighting those monsters on that path, why am I suddenly here?”
“I’ve just been here for a day, why was I suddenly brought here?”
All of the newcomers wore the same puzzled expressions. They were in the middle of the nine paths before this, some of them had even entered the Gates of Life and Death. But suddenly, all of them had been brought here by a mysterious force.
“Once the exit appears, the entrance will be completely shut. All of you are latecomers who had yet to reach the center of this island, so once the exit appeared, every single human who had yet to reach the center would be automatically be teleported here. If not, you’d be completely trapped here for at least another hundred years, forced to wait for the Island of Ice’s next opening.”
The crowd finally understood. They were teleported here because the Island of Ice’s exit had appeared.
The dark altar continuously produced ‘bang’ sounds. The black gate became even eerier following each ‘bang’ sound, causing all those who looked at it to feel frightened.
At this moment, at a spot far behind the place where the crowd stood, three figures sneakily appeared. The three figures stared at the black altar. They were none other than Han Yan, Nangong Wentian, and Big Yellow.
“The exit has appeared, what should we do now? Do we just go there?”
Han Yan asked.
“Are you idiot? If we go there right now, they will definitely tear us apart!”
Nangong Wentian glared at Han Yan. Han Yan’s head must have been kicked by a donkey for him to make such a suggestion. Wu Cong, as well as the Combat Soul geniuses from the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect were waiting to eat them alive. If they showed themselves in front of these men, only certain death would await them. Even their bodies wouldn’t be left in one piece.
“We can’t go there right now, let’s just wait for Little Chen.”
Big Yellow said.
“It has been three days since Little Chen dived into the magma pool, but he still hasn’t come out. Could there have been any problems?”
Han Yan was a bit worried about Jiang Chen. It wasn’t only he who was worried, in such a situation, even Nangong Wentian was starting to worry.
“Don’t worry, Little Chen has the True Dragon Flame to protect him, and his body is also extremely powerful. The magma won’t be able to hurt him a bit. If my guess is correct, he must have found the Magma’s Heart, and is in the middle of absorbing it. Once he comes out, his cultivation will have reached new heights, and Wu Cong won’t be his match then.”
Big Yellow said while shaking his head. He knew Jiang Chen really well.
Underneath the ancient black altar, dark fog was hovering around. Everyone were holding their breaths, not daring to say a word.
“What should we do now? We need to act fast, if we don’t leave now, the gate might close at any time.”
Shangguan Yilong said.
“I’ll be the first.”
A genius from the Martial Palace leapt onto the altar. In the blink of an eye, he disappeared right into the black gate. The gate seemed to sway a little, before returning to normal.
“Nothing happened, this is just a gate that leads to the outside world. Let’s go!”
After the first guy left without any signs of danger appearing, more and more people followed behind, dashing right into the black gate and disappearing from the scene. In just a few minutes time, all the Divine Core warriors on the Island of Ice, with the exception of Jiang Chen and his group, disappeared into the black gate.
Wu Cong, together with the ones from the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect were still looking at the magma pool. It was still calm, and nothing unusual could be seen.
“Prince, Jiang Chen must have died in there.”
Ling Du said.
“It really is a pity that we didn’t get that Emperor Weapon.”
Shangguan Yihong shook his head.
“Damn it, those two bastards and that vile dog still aren’t here! Don’t tell me they really want to stay here for another hundred years?”
Shangguan Yilong cursed. This trip to the Island of Ice was a really depressing journey for them. All the Divine Core geniuses they brought been killed. The Myriad Sword Sect was facing the same situation, all that remained were only a few Combat Soul warriors. They had suffered tremendous losses, and they couldn’t even find the culprit. If they went back like this, there was no way they could explain it to their respective sects, and they might receive serious punishments when they returned.
“Haha, you guys just keep waiting here, I don’t think they’re going to come here.”
Wu Lang started laughing, then he turned around and disappeared into the black gate.
A gloomy expression could be seen on Wu Cong’s face. He too felt extremely depressed. Throwing his glance once again at the calm surface of the magma pool, and the empty land behind him, he said, “Let’s go, I think Jiang Chen really died in the magma pool. As for those three guys, if we keep standing here, they would rather be trapped here for another hundred years than show up in front of us.”
“Precisely. They know they’re going to get killed if they show up in front of us, so let’s leave here and wait for them outside the Island of Ice. I’m sure those three bastards aren’t willing to be trapped in here for a hundred years, they will definitely be the last ones to leave this place. When they come out, they’re going to get killed by us either way.”
Yang Yun from the Myriad Sword Sect said with a sneer.
After that, Wu Cong led the group and entered the black gate.
The restless and chaotic center of the island suddenly became extremely peaceful and quiet. Three figures appeared next to the magma pool in a ghostly manner.
The Black Altar suddenly started violently trembling, and the gate on top of it was trembling even more violently. It was starting to look faded, as if it would disappear at any time soon.
“Look, the exit is going to disappear. Why hasn’t Little Chen come out yet? If we don’t leave this place soon, we’re going to be trapped in here for a hundred years!”
Han Yan said.
“You guys wait here, I’ll go down and have a look.”
Big Yellow said.
“Alright, be careful!”
Nangong Wentian said. With his and Han Yan’s current cultivation, it was impossible for them to dive to the bottom of the magma pool. But, Big Yellow was different, he had an incredibly powerful body, and with his Dragon Horse bloodline, he would have no problems reaching the bottom of the magma pool.
Right at this moment, an explosive sound suddenly emerged from the bottom of the magma pool. After that, a flaming pillar shot up into the sky. At the same time, a bright longsword emerged into the sky together with the flaming pillar.
The longsword let out a sharp cry, shocking the trio. They immediately raised their heads to look at the longsword. The longsword was 2.5 meters long, and it was 5 fingers wide. It was emitting an incomparable radiance from all over, and when it shook, splendid lights would rain down.
The longsword itself was unleashing a supreme aura, as if it was above every other sword underneath the Heavens, the noblest existence amongst all weapons.
“What an amazing sword, it has reached the peak Perfect-Rank! But at the same time, it’s emitting a noble aura that exceeds all other sword underneath the Heavens! Judging from its energy, it can perhaps even compete with those King Weapons!”
Nangong Wentian was instantly attracted to this longsword.
“Damn it, this is such a mighty weapon! Don’t tell me this is Little Chen’s Natal Weapon?”
Big Yellow was shocked by what he saw as well.
Right at this moment, a wild laughter suddenly sounded out from the bottom of the magma pool. In a split second, a man covered with flames suddenly shot out like a razor sharp sword, instantly turning into a handsome young man dressed in white.
Sensing the aura of this young man dressed in white, the longsword once again let out a loud cry. It flew rounds around this young man, showing signs of intimacy.
“What the fuck, this sword is sentient! It has actually submitted itself to Little Chen!”
Nangong Wentian was even more shocked right now.
“This sword is called the Heavenly Saint Sword, my Natal Weapon!”
Jiang Chen wore a bright smile on his face. He stretched out his arm and grabbed onto the Heavenly Saint Sword’s handle. His joy had reached the maximum level.
The Heavenly Saint Sword was only a peak Perfect-Ranked Combat Weapon right now. Although the two parts of the previous sword contained the Great Saint Laws, but with Jiang Chen’s current cultivation, there was no way he could utilize them. What he could utilize was the strength of the Heavenly Saint Sword itself, though. Even so, it was still an extremely powerful weapon. Ordinary Perfect-Ranked Combat Weapons were nothing but farts in front of the Heavenly Saint Sword.
With the current strength of the Heavenly Saint Sword, it was more than enough to fight with ordinary King Weapons, and it might even be stronger than them. Furthermore, the Heavenly Saint Sword was linked to Jiang Chen’s life, it would continue upgrading itself following Jiang Chen’s increase in cultivation. Once Jiang Chen breaks through to the Combat King realm, the Heavenly Saint Sword would break through as well and become a King Weapon.
Also, Jiang Chen had yet to find the other five parts of the Heavenly Saint Sword. If he really gathered them all one day, the Heavenly Saint Sword would be completely reborn.
“Little Chen, I can feel that the aura coming from you is extremely powerful! What is your cultivation level right now?”
When Nangong Wentian sensed Jiang Chen’s aura, he couldn’t help but feel slightly frightened.
“I found the Magma’s Heart, and I’ve broken through to the Peak Late Divine Core realm, only one step away from the Combat Soul realm. Together with the sword in my hand, if that Wu Cong keeps disturbing me, I can kill him with ease.”
Jiang Chen spoke with extreme confidence in himself.
The trio cried out at the same time. As geniuses with incredible potential, they rarely admired someone else, and they were also very prideful. But, Jiang Chen really changed their minds. He’s just a Late Divine Core warrior, but he is able to kill a Mid Combat Soul warriors. Perhaps only Jiang Chen possessed this kind of combat strength.
“Little Chen, where is that broken Emperor Weapon you got?”
Han Yan asked, curious.
“I merged it into the Heavenly Saint Sword. I used several hundred Combat Weapons, as well as the broken King Weapon we got back on the Blissful Island, and merged them all together, making this Natal Weapon – the Heavenly Saint Sword. It’s an invincible weapon that no one can defend against.”
Jiang Chen said.
The trio cried out at the same time. Using several hundred Combat Weapons to make a new Combat Weapons; that was a huge investment! Even more shocking, Jiang Chen knew how to make a Combat Weapon! This put a question in all their minds; was there anything Jiang Chen couldn’t do?
