Chapter 452: Battling Sunchaser

Even the heavyweights on par with Dan Chi in the Myriad Domain were a bit moved when they saw the sudden aura from Jiang Chen, not to mention the young geniuses.

“This is that Jiang Chen? Such a genius exists amongst the younger generation of the sixteen kingdoms?”

“Tsk tsk, incredible! This kid looks no more than twenty something, not only has he broken through to the origin realm, but his strength is so strong as well! It looks like the sixteen kingdoms has indeed been underestimated.”

“Can it be that the legends speak truly of this kid killing one of the innate constitution and suppressing the Sky Sect?

“Dan Chi has always been one to act alone. It looks like the target of his enormous gamble this time may very well be this Jiang Chen!”

The powerhouses of the Myriad Domain were all inwardly stunned. They’d been all perplexed at first and felt that he was playing with fire.

As for gossip in the outside world saying that he was doing so for Jiang Chen, everyone had been contemptuous of this saying and felt that he was looking for an excuse.

However—

Jiang Chen’s entrance had changed everyone’s thoughts.

This made the powerhouses of the Myriad Domain all thoroughly understand—the greatest reason for why Dan Chi had done so was likely because of Jiang Chen.

“Jiang Chen… you!” Sunchaser was also dumbfounded at this time, open mouthed and unable to say a single word.

He almost thought that he was hallucinating just then.

The overweeningly dominant Sunchaser had actually been ashen faced from Jiang Chen’s aura a moment ago, unable to speak at all.

He’d requested to fight just now because he was certain the Precious Tree Sect was food in his mouth. He’d had an absolute psychological advantage towards the Precious Tree Sect all this time.

He felt that he could thoroughly trample anyone who took the field.

In his heart, he’d never considered that Jiang Chen would be his opponent. As strong as the latter was, he was only of the spirit realm.

It was only less than a year since the trials of the Eternal Spirit Mountain.

Jiang Chen had only just entered the sky spirit realm then.

As strong as Jiang Chen was, it was impossible for him to break through to the origin realm in less than a year.

Therefore, Sunchaser hadn’t put him in the list of candidates at all.

However, his sudden appearance and assertive movements had completely thrown his plans in disarray, shattering his beautiful dreams.

Not only would Jiang Chen be his opponent, he was also now an origin realm cultivator.

It was one thing to just break through to the origin realm, but the aura that he was displaying at a mere first level origin realm was actually stronger than Sunchaser’s at peak of third level!

Sunchaser couldn’t accept this at all at first blush.

When Zuo Lan saw the situation, he too was steely faced as his originally gloating feelings immediately sank to the bottom of a valley.

It had been he who had suggested Sunchaser fight a match, thinking that a victory was in the big. However, things had taken an unexpected turn with Jiang Chen’s appearance.

Feng Beidou hectored upon seeing Sunchaser lose his composure, “Sunchaser, is a young man newly set foot into the origin realm enough to scare you?”

Sunchaser grew stern when he heard this and immediately reacted.

He was an old monster who’d come into his fame for more than a hundred years alright. He knew that he had no avenues of retreat after Feng Beidou’s words.

It wasn’t just a struggle for superiority between Jiang Chen and himself now, but one between the Sky Sect and Regal Pill Palace.

The outcome of this match would determine his continued survival and the fortunes of the entire Purple Sun Sect.

If he lost, not only was he done for, but his entire sect as well.

The Sky Sect would never allow one defeated to control the Purple Light Division.

Countless thoughts spun through his head as Sunchaser slowly calmed down. He was someone about to enter the earth origin realm soon! As genius as Jiang Chen was, how strong would he possibly be?

The sudden flaring of his aura just now had indeed been strong, but that was very likely just posturing. With his scant twenty years of age, how would Jiang Chen measure to someone with a hundred years of reputation as Sunchaser?

Sunchaser felt that he would never lose in terms of foundations, battle experience, and all sorts of harrowing trump cards.

Feng Beidou suddenly waved his hand and sent an item shooting towards Sunchaser. He sent a message with his consciousness, “Sunchaser, only victory is allowed and not defeat. I bestow upon you this spirit pearl of fire and ice for protection. All attacks of fire and ice in the origin realm will be nullified against you.”

Sunchaser was overjoyed and quickly took charge of this item.

His hatred of Jiang Chen was as deep as the seas, and he’d naturally done a fair bit of research on Jiang Chen. He knew that Jiang Chen’s Bewitching Lotus of Fire and Ice was exceedingly difficult to defend against.

Since the spirit pearl of fire and ice could nullify all attacks of fire and ice, didn’t that mean the Lotus that could move like a ghost was completely ineffective against Sunchaser?

Sunchaser’s desire to do battle instantly grew several times. If that eerie Lotus couldn’t do anything to him, then a mere Jiang Chen was already captured prey in his hands.

Dan Chi couldn’t help but snort derisively when he saw this. “Envoy Feng, this kind of cheating isn’t fair play now, is it?”

Feng Beidou said faintly, “I didn’t send anyone to help and didn’t break the rules. How am I cheating? Bring out anything good that you have and let Jiang Chen use it. I’ll wait to admire what you have.”

The Regal Pill Palace naturally had their own foundations and treasures, but it truly was nothing much compared to first ranked sect like the Sky Sect.

Dan Chi was about to speak when Jiang Chen waved his hand. “Palace Head Dan Chi, what need is there to borrow anything in order to behead a mere old dog?”

Dan Chi laughed heartily when he heard this. “Good! That’s how a young hero should be! You should let your light shine when need be. Jiang Chen, I wait to drink and chat to your success in beheading Sunchaser’s dog of a head!”

Sunchaser’s face was livid as he roared, “Jiang Chen, youthful pride isn’t your fault, but to be so arrogant as to respect no one, is! I will settle our new and old grudges today! I swear I am less than human if I do not rip you apart into thousands of pieces!”

Sunchaser made a grasping motion with his hands after speaking, coming up with a broadsword in his hand.

“Jiang Chen you scum, die!”

The spirt pearl of fire and ice wasn’t just for defense, it would enhance attacks as well.

Sunchaser possessed a fire spirit constitution and had spent half his life tempering his fire cultivation. Prior to Jiang Chen’s appearance, his training in the fire elemental energy had been the first amongst the sixteen kingdoms.

Dire cracks appeared in the air as Sunchaser swung the sword. Boundless fire elemental energy blazed forth, forming a wall of fire.

A fire dragon churned and created a sea of flames.

The sea of flames looked simple, but possessed the unique aura of the origin realm. It was as if the elemental energy had formed a cage that had sealed off the air.

Once Jiang Chen was encircled by this sea, his only downfall was to be refined to bits and pieces.

However, this kind of attack was simply too crude towards Jiang Chen.

He expanded his hands and vines from sixteen ice lotuses, unforeseen in their thickness and size, instantly formed and continuously gave rise to all sorts of ice walls. they created an ice wall as solid as a mountain in the blink of an eye.

The waves of flames were momentarily halted when they crashed into the ice wall.

The two enormous powers dissipated with a roar, just like the powers of fire and water ramming into each other.

Jiang Chen made hand seals and turned the waves from the melted ice wall into the force of the Vast Ocean Current Splitter, taking the opportunity to counter attack.

The pace of the battle had moved swiftly and the shift in his technique so delicate that it was like the moving clouds and flowing waters, accomplished smoothly in one breath.

Dan Chi’s face was wreathed in smiles when he saw how adeptly and easily Jiang Chen utilized his techniques.

“Jiang Chen hasn’t disappointed me alright. To speak nothing of his body condition, the usage of these techniques alone are enough to hail him as a super genius. Good, good, good! It looks like I’ve made the right bet again this time.”

Dan Chi was a very charismatic person of ambition. Ever since he’d taken control of the Regal Pill Palace, he’d desired to spread his wings and bring the Regal Pill Palace to peak glory.

He himself was indeed a martial dao genius as well. To be able to hold his own with the other old monster heavyweights of the Myriad Domain was a testament to his potential and talent.

It was because that Dan Chi was younger and possessed charisma that he was an uncommon sect head in the Myriad Domain. He had lofty ambition and noble aspirations, a decisive and authoritative style that enabled him to do whatever he wanted. He was never the sort to dither or hem and haw.

Such as how he’d proceeded allying with the Precious Tree Sect.

Dan Chi had set his eyes on Jiang Chen and proceeded forward no matter the criticism and objections from the outside world, never holding any regret.

He’d now received the return for his actions in the form of Jiang Chen!

Sunchaster snorted softly, not panicking when he saw the force from this stroke roll forth. He swept across with his broadsword and redirected the oncoming attack elsewhere.

However, great waves of emotion arose in Sunchaser’s heart from this short exchange.

With his cultivation level of near earth origin realm and the aid from the spirit pearl of fire and ice, he actually hadn’t occupied an upper hand at all!

Petty thug Jiang Chen’s rate of improvement had truly astounded him.

“If I can’t kill this petty thug today, I may actually be the one to be trounced and killed by him next time! I must kill him no matter what the cost is today!”

A murderous light shone in his eyes as killing intent exploded more than ten times over.

“Petty little thief, it’s either you or me today!”

Sunchaser grasped with his hand as he spoke, and a string of red prayer beads appeared in his hand.

When he flung the prayer beads into the air, they actually grew bigger! Each bead actually became the horrifying and sinister form of a skull.

Sunchaser cackled, “Jiang Chen, you have the chance of tasting what it feels to be burned by heavenly fires today!”

He pointed with his broadsword as the prayer beads started rotating rapidly. The twenty four skulls started humming in their movement.

The skulls were shiny and bright, as if each of them nurtured a volcano inside that would erupt with wanton abandon at any moment.

“Heavenly fire, descend!”

The twenty four skulls seemed to be alive in that moment as their orifices opened, shooting forth with blue flame that rumbled downwards.

With their open orifices, the twenty four skulls seemed to be a hundred currents of heavenly fire, shooting downwards like meteors. It was as if a pill cauldron had been overturned and countless heavenly meteors had descended into the mortal realm.

The flames were all blue!

When flames turned blue, this entailed that the fire wasn’t ordinary, but one that was uncommon in nature.

Although it was an exaggeration to call it heavenly fire, it was definitely out of the reach of ordinary fire elemental energy!
