Chapter 2111: Under Attack
“It has only been a few centuries. Have you forgotten about me?” the woman continued to smile warmly, making her seem as pretty as the blooming of a hundred flowers. It was as if the erupting volcanoes in the surroundings had settled down slightly from her smile.
Very soon, a thought flashed through Shangguan Mu’er’s mind as she sensed the familiar presence from the woman. She was surprised as she said, “You’re that Elven Godtree from the elves?”
Back on the Tian Yuan Continent, Shangguan Mu’er was familiar with the Elven Godtree. She gained an extremely deep impression of it. This was because if it were not for the Elven Godtree, it would have been impossible for their world to survive against the crisis of the world.
“I’m not a tree. When I used my remaining life force to condense into a tree of life in the lower world, I had no choice either,” the woman smiled gently.
Shangguan Mu’er had already learnt some of the matters about Audriana from Jian Chen. After receiving confirmation, she immediately stood up and bowed towards Audriana, greeting her as a senior.
“You don’t need to call me senior. Although I’m much older than you, status isn’t determined by age in the Saints’ world. We’re both Godkings right now, and with your talent, you’ll surpass me before too long. As a result, our statuses are equal. Of course, if you hold me in high regard, you can call me elder sister. We can refer to each other as sisters,” said Audriana. On the surface, she seemed indifferent and calm, but she was very perturbed on the inside.
All of this was only caused by how Shangguan Mu’er cultivated much faster than she had ever considered.
In the past, when she left the Tian Yuan Continent with the War God of the God clan, Tie Ta, Shangguan Mu’er was only at the Origin realm. Only so long had passed since then, and she had already become a Godking.
It was not just Shangguan Mu’er. Even Ming Dong nearby and Jian Chen who everyone mentioned had become great Godkings in such a short amount of time. They progressed so rapidly that it was truly breathtaking. Even someone who had seen many supreme prodigies like Audriana would still feel shocked.
“It’s quite the coincidence now that I mention it. I’ve come this time because of the esteemed War God’s orders. I’ve come to find Jian Chen. The trip to the Neptunean Divine Palace only should have been an opportunity to set up a network as preparation for finding Jian Chen, but I never thought I’d hear about him right after I entered the Neptunean Divine Palace. I never thought he’d come here as well. It looks like these matters really are up to luck,” Audriana sighed gently and emotionally.
“The War God?” Shangguan Mu’er murmured softly.
“The War God is Tie Ta. He has become the supreme king of our God clan now,” Audriana could not help but show respect as soon as the War God was mentioned.
Their God clan was rather special. Although they too followed the law of the jungle, where only the strong survived, the War God was an exception.
The War God of the God clan, also known as warring gods, were born from the world. Only one of them would appear with each generation, where two would never appear at the same time. The next generation would only be born once the previous generation died. But without any exception, regardless of cultivation, as soon as the War God of a generation returned to the God clan, they would become an absolute existence. Even the hall elders who basically reigned over the God clan had to listen to the War God’s orders.
“Everyone here is saying Jian Chen has died, but I know that it’s impossible for him to die here,” Audriana looked at the lava below as she smiled mysteriously.
“Jian Chen has that tower with him. All he needs to do is hide in there, and the lava here won’t be able to harm him at all. I think he’s probably having the time of his life down there right now,” Audriana said softly. Aside from Shangguan Mu’er, no one else could hear what she was saying.
“Elder sister, do you know about the origins of that tower?” Shangguan Mu’er stared at Audriana. She already knew that Jian Chen’s tower was extremely tough and of great quality. However, Jian Chen had never explained the exact details of the tower to anyone so far.
Audriana nodded, “I still wasn’t certain about the tower back on the Tian Yuan Continent, After arriving in the Saints’ World, I looked through many records before I became certain.” When she reached there, Audriana suddenly became stern. She said secretly, “The tower ties into many significant matters. The fewer people that know, the better it is. Otherwise, not only will Jian Chen be hunted down, but even the people who have seen the tower before will be doomed. Don’t pry into it too much. I know you won’t mention it to anyone else, but if it raises the attention of those peak experts in the Saints’ World, they have many methods to control the thoughts and wills of other people. They can learn everything they want to know effortlessly.”
“But fortunately, basically all the people who can recognise the tower with a single glance are Primordial realm experts. No one should have managed to recognise the tower when he exposed it in the Neptunean Divine Palace earlier.”
“Sister Mu’er, let’s go. Who knows when Jian Chen will come out. There are fortuitous encounters littered across the Neptunean Divine Palace. I’ll take you around and have a look and see whether we can increase your strength some more. As soon as Jian Chen appears, there will be bloodshed. Even with Ming Dong here, he won’t necessarily be able to hold them off. If you want to help him, you need to be powerful enough, or you’ll just drag him down.”
Shangguan Mu’er and Audriana left the eighth floor, while Ming Dong and his five divine generals remained there, silently waiting for Jian Chen to appear.
As for the many Godkings gathered on the floor, they had already formed their own groups to unleash the full power of god artifacts through pouring their strength together. They began to search for Xiao Man in the lava.
Currently, at the bottom of the lava that was hot enough to melt even god artifacts, Jian Chen was collecting fire divine crystals happily without any thoughts of exhaustion. Every time he cast out his net, he could envelop enough fire divine crystals to form a small hill. All the fire divine crystals in quite a large region had vanished.
Jian Chen moved the tower as he collected the fire divine crystals, having left his original position long ago. Along the way, the amount of fire divine crystals stacked up in the Anatta Tower reached an amount that even he did not know. He only knew that it had probably reached into the hundred millions.
However, Jian Chen still was not satisfied. He knew that a hundred million fire divine crystals were not a lot of five-colored divine crystals, so he did not stop his collection.
But at this moment, just when Jian Chen was about to drag a huge pile of fire divine crystals back with him, the lava in the surroundings suddenly pulsed violently. He felt a strong threat suddenly appear and approach him at an unbelievably rapid pace.
Jian Chen’s face changed. The threat was so great that it was suffocating. It was terrifying, where his blood seemed to freeze up at that moment.
Jian Chen’s face changed several times. Without any hesitation, he immediately abandoned the fire divine crystals he had just collected, returning to the Anatta Tower as quickly as he could.
Just when Jian Chen had vanished, a great rumble rang out. The Anatta Tower was struck by a powerful attack, where even Jian Chen who hid inside it could clearly sense a gentle tremble from the tower through his connection with it.
Jian Chen was shocked. He had already refined the Anatta Tower to the fifth floor now. It was even more powerful than in the past. Let alone supreme Godkings with god artifacts, but he was confident that it could even endure attacks from some Infinite Primes without shaking at all. However, the Anatta Tower shook gently right now, so just how powerful was the attack that the tower had just received?
