Chapter 449: Jiang Chen Enters the Origin Realm

“That direction is… the Myriad Domain? What’s happened there?”

“Could it be that a peerless powerhouse has appeared there?”

“Such frightening phenomenon must be the precursor to the emergence of a great being who can shake the Divine Abyss Continent to the core!”

The old monsters of the Divine Abyss Continent all stared toward the Myriad Domain, full of questions, confusion, and astonishment.

This phenomenon lasted for roughly two hours before slowly fading away. Everyone still hadn’t taken in their fill of it and they all stood there wonderstruck, staring dumbly at the skies, unable to believe that what they’d just seen was real.

Jiang Chen sat cross-legged beneath the Precious Tree, akin to a stone statue.

The circulation that had formed within his body at this moment was at the exact same wavelength as the various celestial forms in the sky, resonating with them.

He never would’ve thought that he would trigger such terrifying phenomenon when he ascended to the origin realm.

From the memories of his past life, those who could form such an astounding scene were only cultivators at the peak of the mortal plane ascending to the heavenly plane.

In this moment, a seal that wavered in and out of existence appeared in his consciousness.

There were nine spheres circulating the edges of the seal, as if water droplets forming another seal in the shape of a chain.

There was a mysterious seal within this chain, something beyond Jiang Chen’s grasp.

But as his consciousness reeled, he could feel the frightening power within the seal, as if it contained an ancient demon or ferocious beast that would destroy the entire Divine Abyss Continent if set free.

“Could it be that my reincarnation wasn’t just happenstance, but had something to do with my Celestial Father? Otherwise, why the seal in my consciousness?”

Even though Jiang Chen had trained the Boulder’s Heart in this life, never would he believe that a seal with such tremendous power would appeared out of nowhere.

He felt countless iron needles stabbing at his soul if he tried even slightly to meditate upon that mysterious strength.

With the current level of his consciousness, he was unable to even scratch the surface, much less unravel this mysterious power.

Jiang Chen guessed that this strength must have something to do with his father from his past life.

In the moment that he broke through to the origin realm, his consciousness had spun at high speeds as his bodily operations had cycled swiftly, accidentally brushing the seal and triggering the phenomenon.

Jiang Chen had been a bit dumbfounded in that instant.

Fortunately, he’d seen much in his past life and guessed that this phenomenon had something to do with his breakthrough. He’d hastily controlled his consciousness and avoided the seal in his mind. Otherwise, the phenomenon might have been even more ridiculous and lasted even longer.

Countless old monsters lying in wait within the entire Divine Abyss Continent cast sideways glances full of wariness at the Myriad Domain.

Meanwhile, Jiang Chen submerged himself in the gains he’d made and the joy of breaking through to the origin realm.

Once the gateway to the origin realm was open, countless doors to martial dao opened as well.

The Bewitching Lotus of Fire and Ice was growing at a rate visible to the human eye, having unlocked another set of it’s abilities after Jiang Chen entered the origin realm.

He could now simultaneously manipulate seventy two fire and ice lotuses.

The most critical thing was that many of the attributes of the Lotus were being slowly excavated after he’d entered the origin realm. Since there was a “yao” character in its name 1, it embodied quite a few magical attributes.

Jiang Chen naturally couldn’t overlook them.

“The Bewitching Lotus of Fire and Ice is also known as the Illusory Lotus of Fire and Ice. Now that I’ve entered the origin realm, I can use the Lotus to make illusory copies of my body and have the Lotus simulate myself, bewitching my opponents.”

He would meet drastically different opponents after entering the origin realm. Jiang Chen knew that he would have to continuously innovate new techniques, else his methods would be completely grasped by ever stronger opponents and as a result he would be completely suppressed in battle.

Apart from the art of “illusions”, the “Supernova Point” that Jiang Chen was cultivating as well could be melded with the Lotus.

The Supernova Point was a divine art, one that concentrated vast amounts of spirit power into a single finger before abruptly unleashing the power to destroy all.

Jiang Chen’s “Supernova Point” naturally wasn’t strong enough to destroy a planet just yet, but he could leverage the Lotus as a source of power.

A vast amount of strength from the ice and fire lotuses could turn into incredible lethal power when concentrated on his finger.

He’d conducted a small experiment against the Sky Sect inspector Wu Chen.

But he’d barely scratched the surface of this technique then, and had yet to venture further into training it.

Now that he had broken through to the origin realm and received an enormous increase to his strength, there was an inexhaustible source of origin power seeping through to his spirit ocean that enhanced his strength several times over.

The various forms of the Lotus had also increased multiple times over.

As such, the sources of his strength were even more abundant, at least five times over what he had access to in the spirit realm.

“The Supernova Point has innumerable mysteries. Although I can’t train the more complex ones right now, simple attacks infused with origin power will be destructive enough for me to do as I wish within the origin realm.”

Jiang Chen would only train three moves for now.

The first: Skyblaze Supernova Point

The second: Profound Dark Supernova Point

The third: Galaxy Supernova Point

The first incorporated boundless fire elemental energy concentrated into an attack that scorched the skies, as if a volcano erupting with incredible destructive force in an instant.

The second absorbed boundless ice elemental energy and concentrated into a mysterious, dark power of glacial ice, giving one the feeling of suddenly being crushed by a hundred ice mountains, freezing even the meridians.

The third, and most powerful one, leveraged boundless metal elemental energy concentrated magnetic power to lock the opponent in a prison of space before slicing it into fragments in an instant. This move was a metal elemental attack of the highest density and would dice one to death instantly.

These three moves were all heavenly techniques with astounding mysteries to them. The current level that Jiang Chen was training at wouldn’t result in even a hundredth of their peak forms.

But even so, Jiang Chen was confident that even if he faced off against that envoy Zuo Lan at this moment, he had absolute certainty in beating him face to face.

The advantages brought by the memories of his past life became even more apparent after he’d entered the origin realm.

When he’d been in the spirit realm, he’d been confined for various reasons and hadn’t been able to deploy his memories to his maximum advantage. He’d only been able to use the barest sliver of the magnetic golden mountain and the Lotus.

But now, this treasure vault of his would be slowly uncovered as it brought to him a spontaneous, explosive increase of battle strength.

Apart from the Lotus, the magnetic golden mountain could also bring to Jiang Chen matchless fighting abilities!

He’d been focused on summoning the magnetic storm throughout the time he trained with the magnetic power.

Magnetic power alone wasn’t a particularly strong restraining force against opponents, and was unable to influence opponents stronger than the user during a battle.

However, a magnetic storm was different. That was the berserk version of magnetic power. It was similar to the mysteries of wind. A refreshing breeze was no threat, but it was a different story when formed into a storm.

Such was the strength of the magnetic storm.

Once formed, it would devour everything like a rampaging wild beast. Even a cultivator stronger than him would be thrown in disarray, if not swallowed, when suddenly caught by a storm.

Wouldn’t his opponent be easy targets then?

The potential of the magnetic golden mountain was astounding, and the magnetic power a boundless, limitless source.

Apart from the magnetic storm, Jiang Chen’s training with the Evil Golden Eye was slowly progressing down the right path. His mastery over it was only at the novice level so his power was limited to only attacking someone on the same level once, or trampling the lower level cultivators.

But after entering the origin realm, the power of the Evil Golden Eye had similarly greatly increased. A single glance could shoot directly into his opponent’s soul. Even if he was challenging someone stronger than him, a single glance would be enough to make his opponent lose their concentration.

Jiang Chen was quite confident that if he matched up against Zuo Lan now, he’d be able to distract the other with the Evil Golden Eye.

He could clearly feel his strength increase holistically since entering the origin realm. His various techniques and methods had all improved in spades.

“The origin realm is an entirely different realm alright. Perhaps, after some time, I’ll be able to refine the magnetic golden mountain another step further and summon the golden monsters, or even the Lord of the Golden Seal.”

If he could fully activate the magnetic golden mountain, he would absolutely have an enormous treasure on his hands.

Jiang Chen lost himself in the joy of breaking through to the origin realm and continued training, ignoring all events and words of the outside world.

At this precise moment, those who had come to witness the ceremony in the outskirts of the Precious Tree Garden had yet to recover from the phenomenon they’d just observed.

That scene had given them too much of a psychological impact and was wholly outside their range of comprehension.

Those present were all heavyweights in the Myriad Domain. There were even those over 500 years old, but they’d never even heard of a scenario such as this, much less seen it with their own eyes.

It took them a long time to recover from the impact it brought to their hearts.

Dan Chi was the first to recollect himself and suddenly laughed loudly. “Good, good! This heavenly phenomenon is a greatly auspicious omen. No matter for what reason it has arisen, for our alliance to receive such a display and borrow such a fortuitous start is absolutely an indicator of the best of fortunes. This is foresight that the alliance between the Regal Pill Palace and the Precious Tree Sect is a match made in heaven.”

Dan Chi borrowed the fortunes resulting from such a phenomenon as he naturally wouldn’t pass up an opportunity to connect it with the alliance ceremony.

In the world of martial dao, talk of fortune and luck would always exist, however subtly.

No one could refute Dan Chi’s words. They were all still caught up in the unexpected events that had just occurred and had no way to challenge his words.

To be honest, the presence and momentum of what had just happened had been too astonishing. They truly didn’t dare speak out of line of this, lest they angered the gods.

In that moment, those against the alliance couldn’t help but wonder, could it truly be that the gods had shown favor upon this alliance and created such a stunning phenomenon?

It went without saying that those in the Precious Tree Sect were all filled with delight. They all felt exalted and knew that no one would ever dare look down on them in the Myriad Domain in the future.

“Daoist Thousandleaf, the heavens find favor with our alliance and this was truly fated in the stars!”

Thousandleaf was also beaming broadly and nodded repeatedly.

“Bullshit!” A loud rebuke suddenly travelled in from the distance.

  1. Yao is translated as Bewitching here, due to the other properties of the Lotus that we’ll see. Yao is a type of demon/monster/unnatural or malicious spirit in Chinese culture. As you can see, there are a lot of meanings for it!

  1. I always thought Jiang Chen wasn’t outstanding enough… it seems this issue is finally being addressed! 🙂
    Like his advantage sounded massive but it just wasn’t showing before…

    1. jiang chen’s previous life was most likely long enough for him to have learned what happens to the nail that sticks out. sticking out a little isn’t that bad, but showing his heaven defyingness without strength and recognition from real powers wouldn’t be very helpful.

      1. What you said and what Jiang Chen did previously have not connection whatsoever… Jiang Chen was trying his best to stand out in the selection! In the selection all he was doing was trying to stand out as much as possible! What nonsense “jiang chen’s previous life was most likely long enough for him to have learned what happens to the nail that sticks out.”
        Have you and I been reading the same novel??
        Even if he stands out, so what? he has lived for millions of years, he is a master of alchemy, he knows countless skills, he is supposed to be a super genius! All these people he meets are several thousand times younger than him! In fact, to know that no one else thinks its embarrassing for him to have been cornered by children several times already, surprises me a lot!
        Just imagine yourself getting pranked and beaten up by an 8 year old… Wouldn’t that be lame?? Well, the same principle!

  2. Thank you for the chapter! 🙂

    Looks like we will get some really good fights in next few chapters. Can’t wait to see MC trample on enemies.

  3. I’m guessing his father in his previous life used some high end or even cheat worthy skill of some sort to grant his son a new life and unlockable, unbeatable potential as an exchange for his own.
