Chapter 1741: Skeletons of Overgods
Jian Chen left the Cultivation Room with a heavy heart. The amount of energy he required to go from the ninth layer to the tenth layer of the Chaotic Body was just too extravagant. Twenty Ten-thousand-year God Origin Pills were not enough. He estimated that he would require eighty of the pills at the very least.
Although he still had a few of the heavenly resources he had found in the Xuanhuang Microcosm on him, he would not be able to reach the tenth layer even if he ingested all of them as the remaining gap to the tenth layer was just too vast.
He could not ingest too many of the heavenly resources, as his body would develop resistance, and their effects would be greatly reduced.
If he was close to the tenth layer, he could consider ingesting them.
Shen Jian, Ando Fu, Mo Ling, and the elders of the two clans had all gathered there already when Jian Chen emerged from the room. The growing disturbances at the entrance of the dwelling had alarmed all of them. They were all extremely grim.
"The people outside will be entering very soon. We must proceed further into the dwelling," Shen Jian said grimly. Godking Duanmu's dwelling was very large, but there was nowhere for people to hide. Once the people outside made their way in, they would definitely inspect every inch of the dwelling. Their group would not be able to hide from Overgods.
"Brother Jian Chen, we've collected everything in the stone room, whether they're useful or not. We've put them all away into a Space Ring. Aside from that, there are a few divine crystals in the room. They're all high grade." Mo Ling handed a Space Ring to Jian Chen.
Jian Chen checked through the Space Ring and found that it was filled with various random things. Most of them did not have any functional purpose at all and was just decor that was pleasant to the eye. There were even gold and silver coins that only possessed value to people of the secular world. Naturally, Jian Chen had no interest in those things, so after checking through it all quickly, he found the divine crystals Mo Ling had mentioned.
There were not many divine crystals, only three pieces. However, each piece was frightening large, even stunning Jian Chen.
The standard size for a divine crystal was thumb-sized, one centimeter long, high, and wide. However, the three divine crystals were all one-meter cubes.
Jian Chen took out a divine crystal. He could not help but sigh in amazement as he stared at this large piece. The largest high grade divine crystal he had seen before was only the size of a head, yet the divine crystals before him had already exceeded that by several dozen times.
"This is a block of divine crystals. A block of divine crystals is one meter in length, width, and depth. If you break it up, a block of divine crystals is worth a million of the standard divine crystals. Some deals involving large sums often use divine crystals like this," fairy Hao Yue's voice rang out.
Mo Ling, Ando Fu, and the elders all looked at the block of divine crystals enviously. To them, just high grade divine crystals were rather rare, let alone a piece so large.
However, they understood that even though they coveted the divine crystal, they could only look and not touch it. It would not end up with them in the end.
"With our current level of cultivation, using high grade divine crystals to cultivate is just too wasteful. I feel like we should wait till we get out and exchange all these high grade divine crystals for mid grade divine crystals. It'll be more beneficial for our cultivation," said Shen Jian. High grade divine crystals were commonly used by Overgods. Mid grade divine crystals were more than enough for them, who were Gods.
Low grade divine crystals were basically used by people below God. Their effects would become negligible to Gods.
Shen Jian had consumed quite a number of low grade divine crystals to become a God in the past. Even if all three blocks of high grade divine crystals were given to him now, he would not be able to reach mid God. As a result, it was better for them to keep the divine crystals and exchange them for mid grade ones once they got out of here.
A block of high grade divine crystal was equivalent to a million standard high grade divine crystals. If they were exchanged for mid grade divine crystals, a single block of high grade divine crystals would be worth a hundred million mid grade divine crystals.
On the other hand, a hundred million mid grade divine crystals were enough for Shen Jian to become a mid God.
"Since our strength won't increase even if we use up these three blocks of divine crystals, why not let them be for now? We can exchange them after we get out," Jian Chen nodded and placed the blocks of divine crystal back into the Space Ring.
At this moment, a heavy sound rang out from the entrance. The sound was even more intense than before, and the space at the entrance twisted violently as well.
"Looks like the people outside have smashed through another formation. We can't waste any more time. Let's leave immediately for the depths," fairy Hao Yue said grimly. The current situation was becoming more and more pressing.
Everyone no longer hesitated and immediately set off. They advanced towards the very depths. That was where Godking Duanmu cultivated.
The formations became more and more powerful as they made their way towards where Godking Duanmu cultivated. They had even gradually exceeded the level of Overgod and reached Godking. Even though the three Overgods had destroyed the formations they came across along the way, the residual fragments still radiated with terrifying power, causing their hearts to beat constantly as they moved through. They were filled with anxiety as their vigilance had been raised to the absolute maximum.
Very soon, Jian Chen discovered three skeletons ahead. They were covered by a thin layer of dust, and it was clear that they had been dead for many years already.
Mo Ling and Ando Fu could not help but quiver violently at the sight of the three skeletons. Both of them dropped to their knees as sorrow filled their faces.
After so many years, this was the first time they had seen the remains of their ancestors. Although they had entered the dwelling in the past, they had not dared to venture too far in due to their limited strength.
Jian Chen also saw the three skeletons, and his feelings became mixed. After all, they had been three Overgods in the past. They had expended tremendous effort to obtain Godking Duanmu's jade, the key to Godking Duanmu's dwelling, but in the end, they failed to benefit from it at all and died in the dwelling instead.
"That's a hidden killing formation. The three of them entered it accidentally, so they were slain. Let's make our way around it," said fairy Hao Yue. She was at the very front of the group, guiding everyone through.
Mo Ling and Ando Fu endured their sadness and bowed towards the remains from afar. Afterwards, they made their way around the place behind Jian Chen. They both knew that their ancestor's skeletons had been trapped in the killing formation. They were unable to take the skeletons away, or even approach the place.
After advancing a few hundred meters, everyone stopped once again. A formation blocked their way.
"This formation is extremely powerful. I don't know whether you can get through it. I'll find the weakness of the formation and all of you try attacking it with your full strength," said fairy Hao Yue. She stared at the formation and studied it for a while before she suddenly extended her right hand, "Three inches to the south-east, attack!"
