Jiang Chen's appearance was like a brilliant star, allowing every despairing cultivator to see a glimmer of hope. They understood their situation very well. These black corpse ravens were too horrifying. Even if they had the power to handle them, it would be impossible for them to get rid of these birds completely. If they kept on consuming their energy this way, they would soon be exhausted.
A lot of rogue cultivators approach Jiang Chen, which was the safest course of action at this point. Jiang Chen on the other hand didn't express any disapproval seeing their presence. As long as these people didn't create trouble for him, he wouldn't mind them at all.
As for those rogue cultivators, none of them wanted to die and seeking survival was everyone's natural instinct. Jiang Chen would do the same if he was in the same situation.
"You're all permitted to follow us, but don't interrupt our activities," Fu Hui said coldly to them.
"Of course. We will never forget Young Master's life-saving graciousness. If Young Master needs any help in the future, we will never decline it."
"That's right. There will be no refusal from us."
Words of gratitude started to come out from their mouths.
"That's enough." Jiang Chen said impatiently.
Having this group of people filled his ears with annoying noises while he was focusing on eliminating the black corpse ravens was disturbing.
The huge number of ravens was akin to boundless benefits. They kept on coming like an endless flow of water. Despite their number, they were no big deal to Jiang Chen. All of the black corpse ravens that got close to him were incinerated by both the True Dragon Flame and True Thunderfire, and was then sucked into the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda before any of them could resurrect.
As a matter of fact, under the incineration of the flames, the corpse and death Qi around was reducing constantly, which greatly affected the condition that the ravens need to resurrect.
The Ancestral Dragon Pagoda buzzed unceasingly. The twentieth level began to brighten up. Although these ravens weren't very strong, there were too many of them - thousands - providing the Pagoda a sufficient amount of energy.
In fact, the Pagoda wasn't the only one that benefited, Jiang Chen himself had also benefited from it. As the pagoda was constantly absorbing energy, new dragon marks were forming in his Qi Sea one after another.
Jiang Chen had 630 000 dragon marks, only 20 000 more dragon marks were needed before he advanced to the half-step Divine Immortal realm. He estimated that the deeper he went, the more powerful the black corpse ravens would be. He wouldn't even be surprised if he encountered Divine Immortal ravens. If this continued at this rate, he would make another advancement and the twenty-first level of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda would be fully formed.
To Jiang Chen, this was greatly in his favor. It was like all these benefits were left specifically for him as no one else would be able to benefit from any of these undead creatures.
After many flocks of black corpse ravens were eliminated, Jiang Chen moved forth speedily once more. The whole path was completely occupied by ravens, but Jiang Chen's sea of fire could burn hundreds of them with ease.
"My God! Who's this youth? When did such a scary genius appear in One-Line-Sky?"
"That's Fu Hui of Cloudmist City. I know him, but I haven't seen this youth before. However, since he's with Fu Hui, he must be a disciple of Skycloud Pavilion. Recently, there was a genius named Jiang Chen that came to Skycloud Pavilion, but sadly, he had been sentenced to the Evil Abyss. So I have no idea who this youth is."
"He must also be a genius of Skycloud Pavilion. Skycloud Pavilion truly is a lair of dragons and tigers. The pavilion itself already has the mighty Tian Muyun. Adding this scary genius, it is only a matter of time before Skycloud Pavilion surpass the other three major powers."
Every one of these rogue cultivators couldn't help being shocked by Jiang Chen's power. They would never believe this if they didn't see it with their own eyes. Having fought those birds themselves, they were extremely clear of how strong those undead creatures were. They knew that these creatures wouldn't die, but in front of Jiang Chen, these horrifying creatures were as vulnerable as insects.
Jiang Chen moved another dozen miles ahead. They were afraid that he had already killed a few thousands of the ravens by now. The twentieth level of the pagoda was agitated. Inside Jiang Chen's body, 10 000 dragon marks had been condensed, leaving only 10 000 more before breaking through to the half-step Divine Immortal realm.
Apparently, Fu Hui could clearly sense the changes in Jiang Chen's Qi as he was the closest to Jiang Chen. While incinerating the ravens, Jiang Chen's cultivation base was getting stronger and stronger. He was afraid that he was the only one who could observe such major changes on Jiang Chen.
Similarly, when the despairing rogue cultivators in front saw Jiang Chen's arrival, they quickly joined forces. After this incident, it was imaginable that Jiang Chen's status would rise dramatically among the rogue cultivators.
This long path had been deserted, but now, nearly a few dozen cultivators were following behind Jiang Chen.
As the path was nearing the end, the number of black corpse ravens were gradually decreasing, but Jiang Chen could sense that every one of these ravens had stronger combat strength, which was a good thing for him.
Not far ahead, three to four disciples in Skycloud Pavilion uniform were besieged by a flock of powerful black corpse ravens with two ravens that had already reached the early Divine Immortal realm. Among the four disciples, the leader was an early Divine Immortal expert and was also precisely a core disciple of Skycloud Pavilion. The other three were inner sect disciples. They seemed as if they had been fighting for a long time. Their faces were beaded with sweat. Some of them even had blood trickling down their bodies.
This couldn't be blamed on them. Although they were strong, this flock of black corpse ravens were too powerful and there were too many of them. Some of the ravens would even hide in the void and sneak-attack the experts. Adding the fact that these birds were invincible, after numerous attempts to kill them, it caused a serious trauma to sprout in their hearts, and when this trauma lasted for a long period, it would turn into despair. So right now, these four disciples of Skycloud Pavilion were ready to give up, they were totally helpless in the face of these undead birds.
