Chapter 982 - Primordial Body Refining Pagoda
As dazzling light blossomed before Mu Chen, he could see the massive continent in the light.
The continent was extremely massive, even if Mu Chen was still in the sky, he still couldn’t see the end of it, and the entire continent was emitting a desolate and boundless aura.
“This is the Divine Beast Origin?”
Mu Chen murmured to himself. In the ancient times, many experts have gathered in this region of the entire Divine Beast Continent, gathering twenty to thirty percent of the pinnacle existences of the Spiritual Beast Realm. Thus causing the attention of the Fiend Clans and they had swiftly descended destruction upon it, directly causing the Spiritual Beast Realm to heavily suffer in an instant.
As Mu Chen sighed with admiration in his heart, his pupils had suddenly contracted as he looked at the Divine Beast Origin with a smear of astonishment on his face.
Because the Divine Beast Origin was located in the void, he had a massive view and Mu Chen could see a crater that was a few million feet in size on the Divine Beast Origin. Looking from the sky, one could see an indescribably massive palm print.
That palm looked like it had descended from the sky as it tore this Divine Beast Origin apart and an innumerable myriad-foot ravine spread out, cutting up the Divine Beast Origin, which changed the terrain.
The destructive force was simply an armageddon. One couldn’t even imagine how many powerful existences had been reduced to ashes from this palm.
Under this palm, even Greater Earth Sovereigns like Mandala might not be able to escape alive.
“This is the destruction caused by the Fiend Clans during the ancient times.” Nine Nether said with an unsightly expression, while being by Mu Chen’s side. Although the Spiritual Beast Realm practiced the predatory law and was filled with cruel competitions, this was only the law in the Spiritual Beast Realm. But the Fiend Clans, which had suddenly appeared, had broken this law apart. They were invading and anything that wasn’t the same as them would be destroyed.
It was also precisely so that the entire Great Thousand World would view the Fiend Clans as great enemies.
The defending war had caused innumerable forces in the Great Thousand World to disappear, along with the fall of countless pinnacle existences. At that time, all grudges were put aside and everything was focused on protecting the Great Thousand World as their objective.
Mu Chen’s face was a little solemn. Although countless years had passed from that war, everyone knew that the Fiend Clans did not completely retreat in defeat. In that battle, despite the Great Thousand World paying a great price, it couldn’t be considered their victory.
That’s because there were many vast territories of the Great Thousand World that were seized by the Fiend Clans and they were still preying on them at the border. The moment they had gathered enough forces, Mu Chen wouldn’t doubt for a second that the Fiend Clans would unleash another destructive invasion.
At that time, the Great Thousand World would face a tribulation of annihilation.
Just thinking about it, Mu Chen’s heart felt somewhat heavy, then he shook his head and calmed his heart down, before looking at the Divine Beast Origin, which they were swiftly approaching, before his eyes suddenly contracted.
He saw that in the massive palm print, there seemed to be four colossi of a few myriad feet that looked like towering peaks. But for some reason, they had made Mu Chen feel fearful.
“Those aren’t peaks. Back when the Fiend Clans launched their attacks, a pinnacle powerhouse of the Divine Beast Origin had sensed it in advance and attempted to obstruct them, giving the lives of this land the opportunity to flee.”
Nine Nether looked at the four peaks with respect, “A super Divine Beast, a Skyeater Divine Tortoise that possessed strength in the Heavenly Sovereign Realm with defences that not even Heavenly Sovereigns of the same level could break. But even so, it still did not manage to obstruct the destructive attacks that combined the power of numerous Monarchs of the Fiend Clans. Its body had been destroyed under those attacks and only four of its limbs stood towering, protecting the lives of others.”
When Mu Chen heard her words, his expression had turned a little more solemn with respect for that powerhouse in his heart. At that moment, if it wanted to escape, with its powerful strength, it might’ve been able to escape. But it had remained for the lives of the Divine Beast Origin. Even if it did not manage to protect the Divine Beast Origin, his desire was worth respecting.
When Mu Chen sighed in his heart, the meteorite beneath their feet charged into the atmosphere of the Divine Beast Origin. Under the friction from high speed, the meteorite swiftly heats up and flames started to rise.
Mu Chen and the rest immediately circulated their Spiritual Energy to protect themselves, then the ground below expanded in their eyes, telling them that they had finally reached the Divine Beast Origin.
A fireball streaks across the horizon, before the ancient and scattered ground started to turn clear in their eyes. The desolate aura that blew over had made them feel like they had returned to the ancient times.
As they watched the ground getting closer, Nine Nether yelled, then she turned into a streak of light that flew out, with Mu Chen and the other two following her.
The four of them had appeared on a mountain myriad feet away. When they landed on the ground, trembling noises sounded from the distance and the ground shook with cracks spreading out on the ground.
Mu Chen’s group looked in that direction and saw flames rising from the ground. That meteorite had smashed a deep hole into the ground.
Mu Chen raised his head and looked at this unfamiliar land. This region was filled with as desolate aura. However, it was tattered, and he could still sense the desolation from ancient times.
There were larges trees myriad feet high standing in this region like huge mountains, with their leaves and branches spreading out, enveloping a thousand feet in radius, looking extremely majestic.
Giant-like rocks were scattered all around and, looking from afar, they looked like slumbering statues, and there seemed to be a special pressure spreading out.
“Welcome to the Divine Beast Origin.” When Mu Chen looked around, Nine Nether lightly smiled from the side.
Mu Chen smiled, then he suddenly raised his head and looked into the distance and saw what seemed to be innumerable fireballs falling down and slamming against the different areas in the Divine Beast Origin.
“Looks like those from the other Spiritual Beast Clans have reached as well.” Mo Feng looked at this scene, then faintly opened his mouth.
When he spoke, the four’s expressions had turned cold and their gazes had turned a little more solemn. They knew that the competition of the Divine Beast Origin would begin now.
“What should we do now?” Mu Chen looked at Nine Nether and asked. He was too unfamiliar with the Divine Beast Origin. Thus, he knew little about this place and could only depend on the opinion of Nine Nether and the rest.
When Nine Nether heard his words, she briefly pondered, before looking at Mo Feng and considered, “I suggest our first stop being the Primordial Body Refining Pagoda.”
“The Primordial Body Refining Pagoda?” Mu Chen was stunned.
“Hehe. In ancient times, there were thirty body refining pagodas in the Divine Beast Origin with the divine effect of refining the physical body. If one could pass through it, not only could they obtain an improvement to their physical bodies, they will also be rewarded differently, depending on their achievements. Rumour has it that a Divine Ability and Quasi-Saint Artifact are even included in the rewards…” Mo Ling chuckled.
“Divine Ability? Quasi-Saint Artifact?!” Mu Chen’s face instantly changed as he looked at Mo Ling with disbelief. He never expected the Primordial Body Refining Pagoda to even have such rewards.
In the Great Thousand World, a Divine Art that was higher than Perfect Rank were known as Divine Abilities!
Not to mention a Sovereign expert, even Earth Sovereigns would be tempted by a Divine Ability. That’s because every Divine Ability possessed a destructive might.
Something that exceeded the boundaries of a Divine Art, the Divine Ability.
And one could peep through this from the so-called “Sovereign Ability”.
As for the Quasi-Saint Artifact, no explanation was needed as it was evident from the Starlight Demon Suppression Pyramid. Naturally, the Starlight Demon Suppression Pyramid was a genuine Saint Artifact, an item on a higher level than a Quasi-Saint Artifact.
But even so, this was the reason why it was more tempting for Mu Chen. That’s because genuine Saint Artifacts were too powerful for him to use and it would be impossible for him to control it. But if it was the Quasi-Saint Artifact, he might be able to add it to his power.
“Really?” Mu Chen looked at Nine Nether with disbelief as he sought another confirmation.
Nine Nether nodded her head. “That’s the truth. But one must obtain an extraordinary achievement in the pyramid in order to obtain a Divine Ability or Quasi-Saint Artifact, and anyone that could achieve such feats are the geniuses of the powerful Divine Beast Clans.”
Mu Chen licked his lips, since it wasn’t unexpected. If the so-called “Divine Ability” and “Quasi-Saint Artifact” could be so easily obtained, then they wouldn’t be so rare.
“Only those pinnacle clans can have the qualifications and ability to construct a Primordial Body Refining Pagoda. But of the thirty pagodas, only five remain. Furthermore, they are all damaged and thus, the quotas are extremely limited in every opening of the Primordial Body Refining Pagoda. Therefore, the competition for those quotas will definitely be extremely intense.” Nine Nether added.
Mu Chen nodded his head. After all, there was more market than the supply. With such a divine effect from the Primordial Body Refining Pagoda, no one would want to let it go so easily.
“Since everyone already knows how extraordinary the Primordial Body Refining Pagoda is, let us vote on whether we should go and compete.” Nine Nether looked at Mu Chen and the other two.
Since they had already formed a team, the opinion of everyone should be coordinated to prevent a divergent of opinion.
When Mu Chen heard her words, he briefly pondered, before raising his hand. He was already coming in contact with the second level of the Dragon-Phoenix Sutra, so he could only borrow the power of the body refining pagoda, then he might really be able to break through to the second level. At that time, there would definitely be a great change to his fighting power.
Therefore, he did not want to give up this opportunity.
Mo Feng faintly nodded his head. “Since we’re already in the Divine Beast Origin, I never thought that it will be easy for us. I also want to know the geniuses of the other clans.”
As he finished his words, Mo Feng raised his hand.
When Mo Ling saw Mo Feng’s decision, she chuckled, “I’ll follow my brother.”
Nine Nether instantly smiled upon seeing their opinions, then she looked towards the northwest and smiled. “Since that’s the case, then we’ll go and take a look at the renowned Primordial Body Refining Pagoda.”
