Chapter 703: Primordial Godsilk (Three)
“Primordial Godsilk?” Jian Chen muttered under his breath. He was extremely doubtful about it and clearly did not know exactly what the Primordial Godsilk was. However, as it had excited the sword spirits to such a degree, he knew it was something extremely valuable, even without any additional thought. What surprised Jian Chen was that the boss of the Flood Dragon Bandits would actually possess such a treasure.
“Master, quick quick, quickly obtain the Primordial Godsilk. You mustn’t let it end up in other people’s hands. It’s an exceptional treasure of the world.” Qing Suo’s pleasant, lark-like voice also sounded in Jian Chen’s head. The voice was filled with urgency, along with endless joy and excitement.
Jian Chen returned to his senses very soon. Without any hesitation, he soared from his magical beast mount, shooting at the bandit boss with lightning speed. He gathered a layer of powerful World Force around his palm and swung it at the bandit boss.
However, what happened next caused all the people present to feel greatly shocked. As soon as the World Force Jian Chen had coalesced approached the bandit boss, it was blocked by the layer of thick, golden light around him. Even with Jian Chen’s strength as a Saint Ruler, he was unable to injure the bandit boss even in the slightest.
“How… how is this possible!” Jian Chen was astonished. He gazed at the layer of golden light that had blocked his palm in shock. His previous strike had also been blocked by the layer of golden light, but that was only a casual strike of his, capable of killing Heaven Saint Masters but not very powerful. As for the current moment, he had used his true strength in the palm strike, but it was actually blocked by the Primordial Godsilk. It was very hard for him to accept that.
When the three great elders of the Tianqin clan witnessed what had happened, they too were stupefied. The defence of the golden soft mail had already greatly exceeded what they had imagined.
The bandit boss stared at Jian Chen in both fear and surprise. The fact that Jian Chen was a Saint Ruler was like dropping a bombshell on him, which had even made the notion that he was completely helpless against him appear in his mind. However, when he understood that Jian Chen actually could not break through his treasured golden soft mail, he was overjoyed from the unexpected twist in events. The psychological barrier of Saint Rulers quickly disintegrated and shortly afterwards, a powerful battle intent bloomed in his heart.
“So the golden soft mail’s defensive capabilities are so powerful that it can even block the attacks from Saint Rulers completely.” The bandit boss was overjoyed. Afterwards, he could not help but laugh aloud, “Hahahaha, when I, Li Haolong, have such a divine object protecting me, even you, a powerful Saint Ruler, can do nothing, unable to hurt me at all. Today, I’ll fight three hundred rounds against a powerful Saint Ruler with my strength as a Heaven Saint Master. Let’s see who wins in the end.” Li Haolong immediately became extremely confident and began looking down on Saint Rulers. He was extremely arrogant.
Jian Chen’s expression suddenly became serious. Back when he was still a Heaven Saint Master, he could fight Saint Rulers of the Fourth Heavenly Layer. Now, he was a Saint Ruler, yet he could not even handle a mere Heaven Saint Ruler. It made him feel very embarrassed, feeling as though his dignity as a Saint Ruler was being challenged.
“Saint Ruler, taste my Heaven Tier Battle Skill.” The bandit boss roared and surging Saint Force flowed out from his body, all of it entering the Saint Weapon in his right hand. He began to use the Heaven Tier Battle Skill.
As soon as he began using the Heaven Tier Battle Skill, the weather started to change. The pressure of a Heaven Tier Battle Skill flowed majestically from the world, enveloping the entire mountain. The great pressure had caused most of the weeds on the mountain to bend, and even some magical beasts collapsed on the ground, shivering.
Whenever a Heaven Tier Battle Skill was used, the world would always change, to acknowledge it!
“Quick! Quickly retreat!” The expressions of the three great elders became extremely serious. They immediately ordered the great group of people from the Tianqin clan to retreat, to prevent them from being affected by the Heaven Tier Battle Skill.
The bandit boss used the Heaven Tier Battle Skill because of Jian Chen, so the battle skill completely locked onto Jian Chen’s presence. The great pressure gathered around him, causing the surrounding space to become slow-moving, as if it was attempting to tightly bind and immobilize Jian Chen.
Afterwards, a powerful ray of light shot through the air. The bandit boss had completely charged up the skill and swung the Saint Weapon in his hand at Jian Chen like a lightning bolt, carrying with it a force of a lightning bolt, something that could even cause the world to tremble.
“Hmph, you want to play with Heaven Tier Battle Skills in front of a Saint Ruler? What a joke!” Jian Chen stared at the bandit boss with ridicule. His body trembled a little and the surrounding space that had froze from the pressure of the battle skill immediately returned to how it was before. A transparent barrier suddenly appeared without any prior warning, forming a tight cage around the bandit boss’s body.
The extremely powerful strike from the bandit boss’s battle skill did not reach Jian Chen in the end, being caught in the barrier. The barrier immediately shook slightly. Meanwhile, the grand energy on the bandit boss’s Saint Weapon was quickly sucked away by the barrier, akin to a whale taking in seawater. In the blink of an eye, the barrier completely nullified the power of the Heaven Tier Battle Skill.
Not only did the bandit boss’s mighty battle skill fail to injure Jian Chen, it had completely disappeared before being able to do anything.
All those below Saint Ruler were ants. Although the bandit boss had the Primordial Godsilk protecting him which made it extremely difficult for Saint Rulers to injure him, it was impossible for him to pose any threat to Saint Rulers with just his strength as a Heaven Saint Master. Even using a Heaven Tier Battle Skill was not enough, unable to break through the barrier cast down by Saint Ruler.
This was because their strengths were on two separate levels, without anything to make up for the difference, unless he possessed a power even greater than World Force like Jian Chen’s Chaotic Force.
Seeing how his full-powered strike with the Heaven Tier Battle Skill could not even break through the thin barrier, the bandit boss’s expression immediately changed greatly. His confidence bloomed from the Primordial Godsilk also shattered immediately, and his mood which had just livened up dipped into a ravine again.
“Master, the power of the Primordial Godsilk is very strong. You can only use Chaotic Force to break through the Primordial Godsilk.” At this moment, Jian Chen heard Zi Ying’s voice in his head.
Hearing that, a gleam of light flashed across Jian Chen’s eyes. He did not hesitate and immediately began to move. With a slight thought, the chaotic neidan in his dantian immediately spat out strands of Chaotic Force, gathering in his right hand. As the Chaotic Force gathered, a dark glow immediately enveloped Jian Chen’s palm and shortly afterwards, a presence of destruction began to permeate. It caused the surrounding space to tremble.
The Chaotic Force surged into Jian Chen’s hand, quickly forming a sword which he thrust towards with lightning speed, at the bandit boss who was still trapped in the barrier.
The Chaotic Force sword pierced through the barrier cast down by Jian Chen, directly travelling towards the center of the bandit boss’s eyebrows. When it came in contact with the golden light given off by the Primordial Godsilk, it actually broke through it without much difficulty. The sword pierced into the center of the bandit boss’s eyebrows, wiping out his soul.
With the death of the bandit boss, the Primordial Godsilk he wore also seemed to lose all of its power. The golden light given off began to disappear very quickly, completely vanishing without much time.
The Chaotic Force coalesced in Jian Chen’s palm also dispersed very quickly, turning back into strands of Chaotic Force and returning to the chaotic neidan. Shortly afterwards, the barrier that surrounded the bandit boss also disappeared without a sound.
Jian Chen did not even look at the bandit boss. With the wave of a hand, an invisible energy crashed onto the bandit boss’s corpse, causing his clothes to be shred into smithereens, revealing a thin, golden garment that seemed to be made of silk.
“Perhaps this is the Primordial Godsilk?” Jian Chen stared at the thin golden garment in interest and muttered softly. He just found it to astounding for such an ordinary-looking, golden piece to actually possess such great defence, even able to block the attacks of a Saint Ruler.
“This is it, this is it. Master, this is the Primordial Godsilk. Take it quick, take it quick.” Zi Ying called out with excitement and joy in Jian Chen’s head.
Jian Chen immediately squatted down to pull off the golden garment from the bandit boss’s corpse. It was not big, only a nifty, sleeveless piece. The material it was made of was soft and tough. The garment itself was extremely light and in his hand, he could not feel any weight at all.
“Congratulations on brother Jian Chen receiving the defensive treasure, the golden soft mail. This golden soft mail can block attacks from powerful Saint Rulers. If brother Jian Chen wears it, it will be like adding wings to a tiger, making brother Jian Chen even greater.” As soon as Jian Chen obtained the Primordial Godsilk, he heard the praises from the great elders behind him.
The three great elders, the patriarch and others all looked at the Primordial Godsilk with a gaze of well-concealed coveting. No one could resist the urge of such a powerful defensive treasure. However, in their hearts, ideas of taking it for themselves failed to bloom, because with the strength Jian Chen had displayed, none of them ever dared to let such ideas cross their mind.
Jian Chen did not pay any attention to the words of praise from the great elders of the Tianqin clan because currently, his mind was filled with Zi Ying’s cries of excitement, “Hahaha, wonderful, wonderful. Who would have thought we would encounter the Primordial Godsilk here, something that can only be seen but not sought after. This is just makes people overjoyed. Master, your luck is just too good, actually able to encounter such a saintly item.”
“The Primordial Godsilk is extremely rare. Qing Suo and Zi Ying have existed for countless years, yet we’ve only seen a few, and every single one of them were possessed by heavenly emperors. It’s primeval treasure.”
“Zi Ying, Qing Suo, perhaps this Primordial Godsilk is a material for forging the Azulet Swords?” Jian Chen asked doubtfully. This was the first time he had heard of the Primordial Godsilk, so he had no idea about its other uses.
“Master, the Primordial Godsilk is not a material for forging the Azulet Swords, but a rare material used to create spiritual treasures of the world. Once the Primordial Godsilk is forged into a spiritual treasure of the world, the uses are so many that it’s impossible for me to explain it with just a few sentences.” Qing Suo said.
“The Primordial God Silkworm is a spiritual object of the world, created from the laws of the world. It is born because of calamity and formed from fortune. Once the god silkworm is born, it will use all its three vital energies of life to weave the godsilk and leave it behind, before turning into ashes.”
“The Primordial God Silkworm does not just appear. Since it’s appeared here and left behind its godsilk, I believe this world will encounter an apocalyptic calamity. It’ll be impossible to resist it with just the power of the world, and must require the power of the godsilk to nullify it.”
Jian Chen’s expression became rather serious. What Zi Ying had said made him unable to become happy, even though he had just obtained a treasure.
“Master, you don’t need to worry. We don’t know what the future calamity, but since the laws of the world have given birth to a Primordial God Silkworm, which has left behind the godsilk, we’ll definitely be able to survive it peacefully. Once the godsilk fulfills its mission, it’ll become master’s treasure, which can be forged into a spiritual treasure of the world. With a spiritual treasure of the world forged from the godsilk, master can travel through the chaotic streams of space at will.” Zi Ying said.
