Chapter 1016 Change in the Immortal Mountain

 

This time’s tribulation proceeded without a hitch. Chen Feng himself was in disbelief. Compared to the previous battles to the death he had encountered, this one was wholly about absorbing power and increasing his strength.

Due to him advancing to the high-level Earthen Immortal stage, Chen Feng became at least 10 times stronger. There were also large amounts of power stored inside the Longevity Tower, waiting for Chen Feng to slowly refine and absorb.

And then there was the power of Heavenly dao laws and immortal dao laws. This was the most important part of overcoming tribulation. The tribulation lasted for one day. However, after that, comprehending the grand dao laws could take anywhere between 10 days or one year, or more.

Naturally, Chen Feng would not choose to cultivate there all the time. Three days later, he returned to Eternal World. During that time, another incident happened. It was his Human Tribulation.

After Chen Feng had successfully overcome his tribulation and was focused on comprehending the grand dao laws, the cultivators who were waiting to get an easy kill finally took action. The first wave consisted of three high-level Ascendant Immortals. However, the moment they appeared, a beam of sword light killed them all. Bi Qing had killed them before they could do anything.

The other incoming groups of cultivators and even those who were still in hiding immediately behaved themselves. Without saying a word, they all left. Don’t joke around. Given Bi Qing’s display of power, not even swarming forward would allow them to win.

Naturally, given Chen Feng’s present level of strength, he was not concerned about those cultivators. Only, he needed some time to digest the harvest from the tribulation. Thus, it was not the best time for him to engage in battle.

“Now, it’s time we head in, no? I’ve long since lost my patience.” As Chen Feng was undergoing his tribulation earlier, several more cultivators had entered the Driftcloud Immortal Mountain. Seeing that caused Huo Yunlong’s eyes to turn bloodshot.

Huo Yunlong had a feeling that this immortal mountain must contain some good items.

“No rush. No one can snatch away that which belongs to us,” Chen Feng said, bringing out his sword to perform a casual swing in the Driftcloud Immortal Mountain’s direction. Next, a beam of sword light flashed forward and a hole appeared on the immortal mountain.

Sou! Sou! Sou!

In a flash, the three of them entered the immortal mountain. They were so fast that the others simply did not have the time to follow suit. Due to that, all of them groaned regretfully as they stamped their feet.

“How is that fellow so powerful? His level doesn’t seem that high.” 

“That’s East Dragon Island’s Chen Feng. He has already killed off countless Ascendant Immortals. He is someone that guys like us can only look up to.”

“Chen Feng? Humph, he is just relying on the power of his magic treasures,” someone said disdainfully.

“Complaining that the grape is sour when you cannot eat it. You want to rely on the power of magic treasures, but you don’t have them. Earlier, I saw you run towards the hole, but you didn’t make it as well.”

“What did you say? Are you tired of living?”

“You’re the one who’s tired of living. An otherworlder like you dares to put on airs here in Eternal World? Friends, let’s teach this brat a lesson!”

Just as a battle was about to break out, space rippled and someone else appeared. This person flew high up in the sky at a high velocity and flames wreathed his whole body. Like a meteor, his figure charged down to slam against the Driftcloud Immortal Mountain. 

“Is he an idiot?” Everyone there knew how powerful the Driftcloud Immortal Light was. Even Ascendant Immortals would end up in a bloodied state doing that. 

“He could be an expert. He does have an extraordinary appearance.”

Boom!

In the beginning, it was as though an insignificant pebble had fallen into a body of water, causing water to splash about and ripple. Next, however, came a tsunami that could seemingly flood the Heavens.

The impact smashed away the Driftcloud Immortal Light. It was as though a maelstrom that was churning in the ocean had abruptly closed up, causing waves of water to burst into the sky.

The unknown cultivator thus made use of this outrageous way to enter the Driftcloud Immortal Mountain. As for what kind of results he could obtain, there was no way to tell.

Boom! Boom!

The mountains located thousands of li from the Driftcloud Immortal Mountain were all destroyed by the scattered Driftcloud Immortal Light. Some of the less fortunate cultivators were swept up by the shockwaves as well. Although they were not killed in the end, they did become seriously wounded.

“Who is that? Such arrogance!”

“Strong! He is at least a high-level Ascendant Immortal.”

“A high-level Ascendant Immortal is not that powerful. Back then, someone had tried attacking with a high-grade Immortal artifact only to fail to break in.”

“That’s hard to say. Chen Feng is not even at the Ascendant Immortal stage, but he could still break the Driftcloud Immortal Light with one sword attack.”

“What kind of person is that Chen Feng? How can he be used as an example?”

“I believe that person is most likely a peak-level Ascendant Immortal. Only, he doesn’t seem like a cultivator from our Eternal World.”

“Sigh! Too many otherworlders have come this time. These are all the treasures of our world.”

“Forget it! No matter how many treasures there are, it is pointless if luck is not on our side. Earlier, even a minor Human Immortal had managed to enter.”

“If you ask me, the Human Immortal just has a death wish.”

“Enough, someone else has come. Hopefully, it is an expert. That way, we’ll be able to enter as well.”

Ignoring what was happening outside, Chen Feng’s team of three easily entered the Driftcloud Immortal Mountain. This was Chen Feng’s second time entering the Driftcloud Immortal Mountain. Unlike the past, it gave him a wholly different feeling.

“As expected, a world-shaking change.” Chen Feng reached out and grasped and the energy streams within a 50-kilometre radius converged to form an energy ball on Chen Feng’s palm only for Chen Feng to crush it with his grip.

“The concentration of the spiritual energy here is already comparable to the Immortal Plane. Only, it is somewhat chaotic,” Chen Feng said, smiling.

“This Immortal artifact is recovering.”

“Its spiritual energy is transforming while its vitality increases.”

“This place is a world of its own. Only, its environment is somewhat harsh. Now that my cultivation base has risen greatly, I should be able to discover things that I never did.”

Images kept flashing through Chen Feng’s sea of wisdom. They were all the places in the Driftcloud Immortal Mountain that Chen Feng had been to in the past.

A mountain of spiritual herbs, a mountain of soldiers, a mountain of spirit stones, stone array, stone forest, other mountains and forest… 

Naturally, it would be hard to tell if those places remained the same. Chen Feng then deployed his eye technique. This time, his eyes did not simply become black. Instead, a clump of flames now burned within each of his eyes. They were none other than his soul flame. His gaze then pierced through space, charging unimpeded through 500 kilometres, then 5,000 kilometres, then 50,000 kilometres. Nothing could escape Chen Feng’s eyes.

“It is indeed filled with vitality. Even the number of native cultivators here has increased somewhat. Some of the cultivators who entered in the past have settled here. Honestly, the environment here is certainly even stronger compared to Eternal World,” Chen Feng said with a chuckle.

“It is the interior of a top-grade Immortal artifact, after all. It will definitely be something else. If it can completely recover, its cultivation environment will surpass that of the Immortal Plane,” Huo Yunlong said.

“Someone’s coming. An expert!” Bi Qing suddenly said.

Chen Feng jerked his head around and his gaze flew forward. Next, he felt as though a blazing sun was charging towards him, melting his gaze to inflict faint sensations of pain upon his eyes.

“This fellow came in after us. Very strong. A peak-level Ascendant Immortal,” Chen Feng said, retracting his gaze.

Huo Yunlong scoffed. By going all out, his cultivation base could reach the half-step True Immortal stage. An Ascendant Immortal was nothing in his eyes.

Sou!

Initially, the other party had appeared as a clump of blazing flames. But in just the blink of an eye, he appeared right before the three of them. This person had not made a single sound or create any shockwaves with his appearance. This shocking level of speed caused Chen Feng’s team of three to start wondering how strong he was.

“So, he’s a fire demon. And a peak-level Ascendant Immortal to boot. No wonder the power within him is so strong. Did he come out from the Planar Battlefield?” Chen Feng said with a smile.

“Planar Battlefield? Humph!” The fire demon snorted, a look of disdain flashing across his eyes.

“All right, let’s ignore where you are from. Do you have any business here?” Still smiling, Chen Feng asked.

Boom!

The fire demon had a handsome appearance, his face seemingly carved out with a blade. It gave off a dashingly aloof impression. Only, the power within him informed them that this person was very dangerous. Upon hearing what Chen Feng said, however, a hint of fiery-red colour glinted across his eyes. Then, without so much as a warning, he fired out a punch.

His target, Chen Feng.

Chen Feng swiftly sent his palm forward to clash against the incoming fist. In an instant, shockwaves quaked outwards tens of thousands of times.

Finally, the force behind the fire demon’s fist was completely unravelled. Chen Feng then took a step forward and fired out a punch of his own.

Boom!

The momentum he displayed was even more overbearing compared to that of his opponent.

“Incredible!” Huo Yunlong promptly backed away.

Boom!

Two fists collided and the entire world seemingly shook as a result.

Both the fire demon and Chen Feng remained still and the ground beneath them was unscathed as well. However, shockwaves surged around them and their surrounding space became like rippling water.

Their power had been dispersed completely into their surrounding space.

“This guy! His cultivation base improved so quickly?” Huo Yunlong exclaimed.

“After overcoming his tribulation, his strength would naturally increase,” Bi Qing said calmly.

“But, his strength has already surpassed mine. This is unbelievable! If he reaches the Ascendant Immortal stage…” Huo Yunlong was still having a somewhat difficult time accepting it.

“Then, he can instantly kill you,” the fire demon said. His voice gave of the quality of heat. Next, his figure flashed. This time, he did not attack. Instead, he simply left an after-image there. When the after-image disappeared, the fire demon had disappeared as well.

“Wacko.” Huo Yunlong shook his head.

“Let’s go. This space is even bigger than we had anticipated.” The brief fight with the fire demon had given Chen Feng an estimate of his own strength.

The three of them moved with extreme speed. In just one day’s time, they had covered a distance of millions of li. After exploring that many places, they managed to acquire a great deal of knowledge about this world. Only, their harvest was not that great.

“I’ll perform a divination technique again.” Bi Qing decided.

“No need for senior to waste your strength. I have already found some clues,” Chen Feng suddenly said.

Naturally, Chen Feng himself did not possess that kind of ability. All of it was the Longevity Tower, who secretly took action. The Longevity Tower had already detected the aura of a True Immortal. Thus, Chen Feng felt confident.

“Let’s go. We have quite some distance to cover.” After deciding which way to go, the three of them headed out once more.

Boom! Boom! Boom!

It was then that space shook as three attacks, each of varying colours, broke through space to attack Chen Feng’s team of three.

“There are death seekers here.”

“It’s the power of magic treasures.”

They felt slightly surprised. Truth be told, they had been somewhat careless. They had not utilized their divine sense to scan earlier, resulting in the other party secretly locking down on their positions.
