Chapter 1362: Battling the Two Hall Masters
Jian Chen looked up to observe the formation. He said, "This is only a trapping formation. Just this is not enough to kill me. Hall masters, if you want to kill me, please use the killing formations you've brought."
"Hmph. Since you want to die so much Jian Chen, we'll let you," the hall master of the Serpent God Hall powerfully replied. With that, a killing intent immediately permeated the surroundings. The landscape around Jian Chen changed once more. The bloody hell disappeared and was replaced by a hazy gray space.
The trapping formation was still present. Jian Chen could still feel the mysterious force restricting him, suppressing his strength. The killing formation had only been added onto the trapping formation, having been placed inside by the hall master of the Serpent God Hall. The two formations actually seemed to have melded together.
Suddenly, a beast's roar, almost draconic, rang out. Nine serpent dragons ten thousand meters long appeared in the surroundings. They radiated with terrifyingly powerful presences. None of them were weaker than Saint Emperors.
"This is a formation forged from the essence blood of the former hall masters of the Serpent God Hall. Every single formation is created from essence blood," Jian Chen thought to himself. His soul was so powerful that his senses had passed through the formation already, clearly seeing what had happened outside.
The nine dragons furiously roared as their teeth and claws flew over in a flurry, heading toward Jian Chen in a unstoppable manner. Every single serpent dragon was like a Saint Emperor. The tremendous presence stacked on one another as it pressed against Jian Chen, almost collapsing the space there.
The two halls were great organizations that had existed for countless years. They had produced countless Saint Emperors during that time, totalling more than the Tian Yuan Continent's Saint Emperors. Although no more Origin realm experts appeared after the sea goddess, there were plenty of former hall masters with impressive talents who created earth-shaking Tian Level Saint Techniques and various killing formations.
In the battle against the hall master of the Serpent God Hall, it was not that the hall master was weak but that he had been careless. He had not made sufficient preparations.
However, it was completely different now. Both hall masters had made sufficient preparations to use this opportunity to take Jian Chen's life. Even though they were injured, they were still extremely powerful.
"Jian Chen, I'd like to see how you get through this formation. This is the Nine Dragons' Formation of Destruction. It's a powerful formation created by a former hall master of my Serpent God Hall near the end of his life when he was a peak emperor. Even emperors will face life-threatening danger when trapped, let alone you," the hall master of the Serpent God Hall sneered. If he used the formation on Yadriam, it may not have been sufficient, but it was more than enough to make the ruler of the Turtle clan suffer since he had only become an emperor recently. It might even be enough to kill him then and there.
This was because the nine dragons, which were condensed from the essence blood of emperors, could temporarily erupt with the power of emperors due to the formation. If they worked together, killing a newly broken through emperor would be far too easy.
Jian Chen did not move at all as he sat on the Zi Ying Sword. He used a sword technique as the Qing Suo Sword on his back immediately shone with dazzling azure light. With a resonance, the sword flew from his back as a streak of light, shooting toward one of the dragons with lightning-like speed.
Silently, the shockingly powerful serpent dragon dispersed, having been reduced to nothingness.
"H- how is this possible…" The hall master of the Serpent God Hall noticed the changes in the killing formation the moment it occurred. Disbelief immediately filled his face.
After dispersing the first dragon, the Qing Suo Sword then flew toward the other eight serpent dragons at an extremely great speed. It was like a bolt of lightning, making it difficult to distinguish through the naked eye. It seemed like a flash of azure light.
In less than a second, the nine serpent dragons had been destroyed by the Qing Suo Sword. They did not even have the opportunity to approach Jian Chen, having been wiped out from several thousand meters away.
"This is impossible… this is impossible," the hall master of the Serpent God Hall became dumbfounded outside the formation. He had witnessed everything in shock. Disbelief was written across his face. The Nine Dragons' Formation of Destruction was something that his Serpent God Hall took pride in, yet it had actually collapsed helplessly before Jian Chen. He was unable to accept this.
With a violent sound and a flash of dazzling azure light, the Qing Suo Sword cleaved through the space and emitted a powerful force. It smashed through the formations of the hall master.
Jian Chen reappeared. He remained seated on the Zi Ying Sword just like before with only an azure sword hovering above his head.
The hall master of the Heaven's Spirit Hall had become utterly stunned as well. He stared at Jian Chen in shock and actually completely forgot to cast down a new formation.
"Formations are useless against him. He has a treasure for breaking through formations. Use the quaking thunders!" The hall master of the Serpent God Hall cried out. With a flip of his hand, two quaking thunders that pulsed with powerful energy appeared.
Jian Chen's eyes narrowed. He became surprised, because the quaking thunders in the hands of the hall master gave off energy pulses no weaker than Saint Emperors.
Jian Chen had obtained quite a few quaking thunders back in the divine realm, but the most powerful one he obtained was only at the 16th Star. He had not obtained anything higher than that, but the two quaking thunders in the hall master's hand was clearly greater than that. They were at the 17th or even 18th Star.
The hall master of the Serpent God Hall felt rather pained when he pulled out the two quaking thunders. Such powerful quaking thunders had already vanished for several tens of thousands of years. His quaking thunders had been passed down by a hall master several tens of thousand years ago. Every single one possessed destructive might able to blow Saint Emperors to pieces. He did not have much stored away anymore, and they would vanish after each use.
However, Jian Chen grew at a rate that was just far too shocking. Now that they had completely fallen out, Jian Chen would cause the demise of the Serpent God Hall sooner or later if he was not eliminated. This was why the hall master had made up his mind to use everything he had to eliminate Jian Chen.
With the whistling of wind from afar, Yadriam rushed over from ten thousand kilometers away as quickly as she could to reinforce Jian Chen as killing intent surged from her. The presence she gave off right now was so terrifying that it had become destructive, causing the surrounding space to violently tremble.
"Hall masters, if you make her majesty's revival result in failure, I swear I will make you regret it for the rest of your lives," Yadriam called out. Her voice was thunderous, enough to cause the space there to shake. The loud voice echoed several tens of thousand kilometers away, shocking countless people.
