Chen Chen took a look at the storage ring to see that there were three magic treasures inside. Before he even asked anything, Yu Qiong had already begun the introduction.
“The first magic treasure is called Arcane Light Shield, which is a supreme tribulation transcendence treasure that can block even the Apocalyptic Divine Thunder. It can help several Void Refinement realm cultivators succeed.”
“The second piece is called the Heart-Calming Cauldron that can stabilize one’s state of mind to prevent going off tracks. It’s a treasure that belongs to the clan master.”
“The third is called the Imperishable Banner that used to be a diabolic supreme treasure. Later on, the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan managed to get hold of it and re-refined it into a Tribulation transcendence banner…”
“With this treasure, even if you die during the Thunder Tribulation, even a trace of the remaining soul will be absorbed by the Imperishable Banner. In the future, there may be a chance for you to cultivate again.”
Hearing Yu Qiong’s words, Chen Chen was greatly relieved.
With these three treasures, he would be invincible, and there was nothing for him to be afraid of.
However, a moment later, his mentality became humble.
When he first obtained the triangular crystal, he felt invincible too. However, it turned out that Heaven was playing tricks on him.
“Master, thank you for your kindness! I will remember it!”
Chen Chen said seriously with a solemn expression when he looked at the three treasures in the storage ring.
Yu Qiong was surprised when she saw Chen Chen’s expression. She then waved her hand and said, “Don’t be so mushy. You’re my disciple after all. If you die in the Thunder Tribulation, don’t embarrass me too. By the way, remember to go to the Tribulation Platform at the peak. There’s a Thunder Array, and I’ve already made arrangements for you. You can go straight.”
“Do you need me to protect you?”
“No, Master, I’m afraid that after you see my Thunder Tribulation, it will affect your mind and cause problems for you when you step into the Void Refinement realm.”
“Hey, do you think I made it to the Essence Soul realm by consuming elixirs? Let me tell you, don’t treat alchemists as cultivators. Those who can reach the peak of the Essence Soul realm all have great perseverance.”
Half a day later, Chen Chen adjusted his state to the peak and then stepped onto the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan’s peak.
There was a huge platform of a thousand meters in circumference, it was emerald in color and was covered in dense array patterns.
Nobody stopped Chen Chen from walking straight to the platform, where he sat down cross-legged in the middle.
He took out the Arcane Light Shield and protected his body before retrieving a triangular crystal to protect the light shield.
He then took out the Heart-Calming Cauldron and lit up the spices that were made with tranquilizing type treasures.
He then placed the Imperishable Banner behind him.
Every move Chen Chen made was careful and ritual-like.
However, this was not the end.
Finally, Chen Chen took out ten more jade boxes and lined them up neatly in front of him, and a dense aura began to spread.
Yuan Qingtian and Lao Hei watched from afar and clucked their tongues in wonder.
For some reason, they always felt that Chen Chen’s movements were very elegant, and those who don’t know think that he was performing some superior art.
“God, please be merciful, I, Chen Chen will be eternally grateful!”
Seeing that the preparations were almost ready, Chen Chen bowed to the sky sincerely.
He then sat cross-legged again.
The bottleneck seemed to be vaguely existent, and Chen Chen decided to break through the bottleneck in mind.
The cultivation of the innate spirit body was extremely simple. Hence, Chen Chen could break the bottleneck easily.
Soon, Chen Chen sensed the faint pressure converging above his head.
Fifteen minutes later…
The sky gradually darkened, but it was noon.
There were no rolling thunder clouds this time, but rather, the sky turned dark, and the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan was shrouded in darkness.
Strictly speaking, not only the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan, but also the Jade Tripod City near the foot of the mountain, and the area further away had all plunged into darkness.
Sensing the huge pressure of the mountain above his head, Chen Chen trembled slightly.
‘This damned Heaven is bent on killing me. This pressure is countless times stronger than the Tribulation Transcendence!’
‘I really don’t know how a good person like myself has offended Heaven.’
The sky was getting darker and darker, and finally, the whole area of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan was completely plunged into darkness!
It was pitch dark, and there wasn’t a single ray of light.
Seeing that many disciples of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan had begun getting into an uproar, Yu Qiong yelled, and her voice spread throughout the entire Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan.
“The experts of the clan are transcending the tribulation at the peak of the mountain. Everyone, please stay in place. Don’t panic or move around.”
“Which mighty figure is this?”
“This is really terrifying.”
Many alchemists of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan lit their lamps and looked in the direction of the peak, their eyes full of curiosity.
However, Chen Chen wasn’t curious at all. He pulled a long face and took out a few head-sized luminescent pearls that acted as a source of light.
He also threw a few to Lao Hei and Yuan Qingtian, who were in the distance while exclaiming with excitement, “Lao Hei, you must stay calm! Don’t be too agitated!”
Lao Hei held onto one of them speechlessly.
‘I’m not the one who’s going to transcend the tribulation, why should I calm down?’
It was the first time he had instructed others to calm down when transcending the tribulation.
Before Lao Hei could understand, a golden thunderbolt flashed past the dark night sky and split the sky into two!
The target of the golden thunderbolt was precisely Chen Chen, who was hiding in the two-fold protection.
Looking at the arm-thick Apocalyptic Divine Thunder, Chen Chen’s face twitched.
The last time he collected the Apocalyptic Divine Thunder, they were all in fine shreds, but now, they were the thickness of an arm.
Most of the Essence Soul realm experts could not stand it.
Seeing that the Apocalyptic Divine Thunder was about to land, Chen Chen had no choice but to pray that the treasures were useful.
The Divine Thunder was split into three by the triangular crystal when it struck, and it was then blasted at the Arcane Light Shield.
The Arcane Light Shield was flickering with a green light that intercepted all three Apocalyptic Divine Thunder, and only a trace of destructive aura passed into the arcane light shield, making Chen Chen feel slightly uncomfortable.
Seeing this scene, Chen Chen was slightly relieved.
The Arcane Light Shield was indeed worthy of being a treasure of a long inheritance as it was really of some help to the Heavenly Tribulation.
However, the first thunderbolt was just baited because the last one, which was the strongest, was a pure Apocalyptic Divine Thunder.
The array of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan’s tribulation platform was activated naturally, and it formed various barriers that prevented the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan from suffering any damage.
Chen Chen was feeling rather frightened in the Arcane Light Shield at first, but as time passed, he calmed down.
Of course, this may also be the effect of the Heart-Calming Cauldron.
All in all, everything went very smoothly, and regardless of how the Apocalyptic Divine Thunder whistled, the Arcane Light Shield remained still like a solid barrier in front of Chen Chen’s body that completely isolated Chen Chen from the outside world.
Although Chen Chen began to feel conceited, he remained humble and modest on the surface.
Apart from angering Heaven, it was pointless to be arrogant. A truly mature cultivator will not do such a foolish thing for the sake of a moment of pleasure.
Chen Chen was a mature cultivator today.
“When I become an immortal emperor one day, I want to see who controls this Thunder Tribulation! I’ll destroy you when I get the chance to!”
Chen Chen’s eyes were full of gratitude.
Gradually, the Apocalyptic Divine Thunder weakened, and the frequency was slowing down as if it was impotent and enraged.
Chen Chen smirked when he saw that.
The cultivators of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan had already been shivering for a long time.
There were many cultivators in the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan so there were people on the Tribulation Platform.
However, a tribulation like today’s was rare.
Perhaps, only some of the clan’s elders had seen it.
“I’m afraid the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan will have one more Void Refinement realm expert today.”
“Yes, I initially thought it was the Saintess, but she has just spoken, so it shouldn’t be her.”
Many Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan cultivators began to talk, and they seemed to be overjoyed that they had just overcome an ordeal as if they were the ones who had gone through the tribulation.
The Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan cultivators were elated, but Yu Qiong, who was observing in the dark, was not happy in the slightest. Instead, her expression became increasingly grave.
To be honest, Chen Chen’s tribulation was far beyond her imagination, and she thought that even if she were to transcend the tribulation, it wouldn’t be any worse than that.
However, the sky seemed to be getting more and more oppressive.
‘Could it be that there is some special catastrophe that is going to strike?’
‘Although there are all kinds of treasures in this world, Heaven is smart, and tribulations would be pointless if they could be transcended that easily.’
Hence, there were some special tribulations.
However, such tribulations would happen only to those whom Heaven could not tolerate or those who were going to ascend to immortality.
‘Why did it occur to Chen Chen?’
“Could it be because this brat has plundered too many treasures?”
The more Yu Qiong thought about it, the more likely it seemed to be to her.
In the eyes of the heavens, all beings and existences were treated equally, be it a human, a demon, or a spiritual object of heaven and earth.
Hence, in the eyes of the heavens, taking too many spiritual objects of heaven and earth was tantamount to the slaughter of countless living beings.
The consequences were even more severe.
The reason being, spiritual objects of heaven and earth were the essence of the world that Heaven favored and was far more important than mortals or cultivators.
Before she could continue thinking, a chilly breeze suddenly blew through the mountains of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan.
A strange howling sound echoed throughout the air.
Immediately afterward, a hideous face appeared in the night and began converging towards the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan.
Seeing the fiend-like beings, Yu Qiong’s face instantly turned pale beyond recognition and she murmured, “I didn’t expect it… It’s really the Heavenly Fiend Tribulation. How many treasures has this brat taken? He managed to trigger Heaven’s wrath and make Heaven try to kill him.”
