Chapter 1221: Urton
They arrived in front of the frozen Class 9 Magical Beasts next. All the magical beasts were extremely large, and from afar, they seemed like tall structures. Three of them were felines, ten meters tall and fifty or sixty meters long. The fourth one was a giant, two-headed python that sat there. It was three meters thick. The fifth magical beast as an unknown mutated beast of antiquity. Its two huge wings were extended, covering a distance of several hundred meters.
The final magical beast was a hundred-meter-tall Warbeast. It carried a white bone club on its shoulder. Although it had already been frozen into a statue, its wild presence could still be clearly sensed.
Jian Chen and Nubis looked at each other as shocked filled their gazes. Seeing several frozen human Saint Emperors was already stunning enough. They had never thought that they would see another six frozen Class 9 Magical Beasts.
Class 9 Magical Beasts stood at the same level as Saint Emperors. Even in ancient times, Class 9 Magical Beasts were apex existences along with Saint Emperors when ignoring the four great champions. They were supreme.
Yet, so many human Saint Emperors and Class 9 Magical Beasts had been frozen to death on the icy plains, which really affected their thoughts.
When did Saint Emperors become so fragile where they would end up freezing to death from the cold? If this news made it to the Tian Yuan Continent, it would be explosive, able to shake up all the experts on the continent.
However, this exact scene just happened to reflect the terrifying power of the Ice Goddess Hall.
“Saint Emperors reign supreme on the continent. No matter what identity they possessed before they died, they deserve a corresponding amount of respect. I’ll take these Saint Emperors back and bury them on the Tian Yuan Continent,” Jian Chen said in sorrow. He felt sorry for the horrible fate the Saint Emperors had suffered. They were mighty Saint Emperors, yet they met their end by freezing to death in this snowy land. There were not a lot of people throughout history who had suffered such a miserable end.
Jian Chen arrived before the Saint Emperors statues. He wanted to put them in his Space Ring to take them back. Unfortunately, the icy Saint Emperors had fused with the ground, so they were stuck there.
Jian Chen pulled out his Emperor Armament without hesitation and swung it at the ground. The ice was far tougher than he had imagined. After swinging the weapon a few times with full force, he only left behind a shallow mark.
After swinging over a hundred times, the frozen Saint Emperor was finally separated from the ground. However, at that moment, a crack rang out. A chink had suddenly appeared in the ice, which expanded at an unbelievable rate. It covered the entire person in just a few seconds.
Bang! With a gentle sound, the entire statue shattered. There was no blood at all. The Saint Emperor’s flesh had already been frozen.
Jian Chen became stunned at this as he stared at the pile of ice that had once been a Saint Emperor. He could not help but sigh inside after witnessing a mighty Saint Emperor end up like this.
Jian Chen did not touch the other ice statues. He returned to where the Class 9 Magical Beast statues were. After hesitating slightly, he jumped up and swung the Emperor Armament at a feline magical beast.
After attacking several dozen times, Jian Chen finally beheaded the statue. As soon as the water tank-sized head fell to the ground, it shattered with a bang, reduced to an icy mess.
Crack! Crack! Crack!
The next moment, the cracks on the headless body quickly spread and turned it into an icy mess as well.
Jian Chen looked through the mess but he failed to find a complete Class 9 Monster Core. All he found were pieces of a frozen monster core. All of its energy had drained away, so it was useless.
Jian Chen was disappointed. He already understood that the frozen Class 9 Magical Beasts were worth nothing, and they could not be touched just like the human Saint Emperors, or they would be reduced to an icy mess. Even their Space Rings would be destroyed.
“These Saint Emperors and Class 9 Magical Beasts have died far too long ago. Their flesh has completely fused and turned into ice,” Rui Jin sighed. He felt rather heavy-hearted.
“They’ve been dead for at least several hundreds of thousands of years,” said Nubis.
“Let’s continue,” Jian Chen signaled everyone. They no longer paid attention to the ice statues and continued on.
As they rapidly traveled deeper into the icy plains, they came across quite a few ice statues. There were both humans and magical beasts, but they were all at the level of Saint Emperor. None of them were weaker than Saint Emperor.
“This place is just too terrifying. We’ve found over thirty Saint Emperors and Class 9 Magical Beasts that have been frozen into statues,” Nubis said with a slight tremble to his voice. He had already begun to feel some dread for this place. This was basically a graveyard for Saint Emperors.
An hour later, they traveled another five hundred kilometers. The temperature there haf dropped even lower. Jian Chen and Nubis were already using everything they had to stay warm while Yu Fengyan had been sent into the artifact space by Jian Chen. Even Rui Jin, Hong Lian, and Hei Yu had donned their origin armor.
“There’s another fallen expert here,” Nubis said as he pointed ahead.
An extremely burly man sat on the ground. His eyes were tightly closed, having died long ago.
“There’s words!” Jian Chen said with a hoarse voice. A line of words had been carved into the ice right in front of the man.
“I am Urton. I was invincible. After several hundred years of secluded cultivation, I failed to break through to the Origin realm. I learned of the mysterious Ice Goddess Hall from ancient records and came to find them, but who would have thought that I would freeze to death before I could even catch a glimpse of them. I am unwilling. I am filled with unwillingness for falling here…”
“Urton, it’s actually Urton. He’s the ruler of the Beast God Continent five hundred thousand years ago. It’s said that he was the strongest magical beast, having reached the peak of Class 9. No one was his opponent among the humans and the magical beasts. I never thought he ended up dying here,” Nubis cried out.
