Strongest Sect of All Times - c192 - difficult fire dragon beast
Previously, when he met a slightly difficult opponent, Jun Changxiao would quickly make retreat plans.
But the Fire Dragon Beast was related to the epic mission, so it had to be faced!
Based on the burning heat, this high fifth stage savage beast’s strength was extraordinary. He could not casually bring his disciples through, lest they get hurt.
Jun Changxiao asked, “Is this guy very big?”
“Sect Head, an adult Fire Dragon Beast is at least four zhang (3.33m) in length,” Li Qingyang said.
By Falling Star Continent’s measures, one zhang was about 3 meters. Four zhang was thus 12 meters. Based on that, a Fire Dragon Beast would be the same size as a four-floored building!
If the size was bigger, the strength was also greater!
“A little difficult,” Jun Changxiao’s brow wrinkled slightly.
The system said: [Based on a Fifth Stage Martial Ancestor, the Fire Dragon Beast is at least 500,000 jin in strength.]
500,000 jin minimum!
Jun Changxiao’s mouth was twitching.
The system added: [That is just a basic estimate, as it did not consider its flame attribute. Therefore, if the host bring the disciples to hunt and kill it, the probability of their being a total party kill is 99%.]
“The chance of winning is 1%,” Jun Changxiao whispered.
Did the host not hear how I just said that going inside would result in a total party kill?
Jun Changxiao certainly heard it, but as he rubbed at his temples, his brain was crazily thinking about how to deal with the Fire Dragon Beast.
“Zhou Hong, are you confident in killing it?”
“Not confident,” Zhou Hong truthfully said.
If it was a high second or third stage, he might have the confidence. But since it was a high fifth stage Fire Dragon Beast, he could only run away.
In front of absolute strength, the power gap was so great that it was oppressive.
Zhou Hong said, “Sect Head, if you give me some time to comprehend the One Character Sword Move, I can kill it.”
“At least one month.”
Sect Head Jun wished to slap himself.
Why the fuck did you care about sect contributions? Why didn’t you give him the Ice Sword Divine Art earlier?!
It seems like… Jun Changxiao secretly decided, I can only use the Green Dragon Crescent Blade.
The system said: [Ever since the Vast Spirit Gate, the host’s cultivation has not had a substantial increase. Even if you forcefully use the Green Dragon Crescent Blade with the Strength Talisman, you might not necessarily be able to wound the enemy.]
Jun Changxiao said, “Then I’ll use the Irretractable Saber!”
That was his final card.
He had saved two Seal Opening Talismans.
In order to complete the Epic Mission, in order to not be stuck at this cultivation level, he would be willing to use both of them!
The system approved this determination: [Good.]
Lu Qianqian said, “Give me a day or so to cultivate and I will be able to seal the Fire Dragon Beast with the Ninefold Heavy Palms.”
Jun Changxiao stared wide-eyed.
Within a day of cultivating a divine grade martial skill, she could seal a high fifth stage savage beast?
Was this… was this a joke?
Seeing Lu Qianqian’s expression, Jun Changxiao believed that she was not joking — she was being completely honest!
Zhou Hong said, “If the Fire Dragon Beast stays still, this Disciple has confidence in heavily wounding it.”
Ye Xingchen, who had been silent so far, added: “The Fire Dragon Beast is a fire type savage beast. If it is sealed with ice energy, the opposing attributes will cause its physical strength to drop — that would be the best time to strike and kill it.”
Martial Emperors were Martial Emperors, their knowledge of the Martial Way were very rich.
Jun Changxiao secretly thought, Since there are still two days left in this journey, it might be better to let them try it and save the Irretractable Saber as a backup.
Seal Opening Talismans were very precious, so he would save them where he could.
Jun Changxiao decided: “Tomorrow, at this time, we’ll go kill that Fire Dragon Beast!”
From a small distance away, the rogue cultivators were wide-eyed.
The Ironbone Sect was truly arrogant, daring to provoke the extremely strong and flame attributed high fifth stage savage beast.
“Elder Brother Shan, we should probably go.”
“If the Ironbone Sect isn’t able to handle the Fire Dragon Beast and calls it out here, we’ll definitely die!”
“This powerful fire class savage beast, once it gets angry, burning down half of Death Valley is just child’s play!”
Many rogue cultivators wanted to retreat.
Moreover, after scrap-picking for so many days, there was no more need to follow the Ironbone Sect and face any risks!
“Go, let’s leave!”
One rogue cultivator team’s leader humbly said, “Sect Head Jun, I and the others will say goodbye here first. I hope that your honorable sect can smoothly take care of the Fire Dragon Beast!”
Although there were blessings, the man was clear that this type of flame attribute high fifth stage savage beast needed a Sixth Stage Martial Ancestor to deal with.
“Sect Head Jun, we will also say goodbye first!”
At this time, more than half of the 30 or so cultivators left.
Looking at the ten or so who did not leave, Jun Changxiao asked, “Why do you guys not leave?”
A middle-aged man with a scruffy face seriously responded, “If not for Sect Head Jun, this Sun would never have been able to enter so deeply into Death Valley. Thus, I am willing to remain here and lend a helping hand.”
A nearby Martial Master said, “I and the others remained to help Sect Head Jun out!”
There were some who were sincerely grateful for Jun Changxiao. Others just wanted to gable — if they killed the Fire Dragon Beast, there would definitely be good spoils!
Jun Changxiao said, “You guys can observe.”
The people felt their mouths twitching.
Was this Ironbone Sect Head looking down on them? Was he hoping they would retreat?
Not at all.
Jun Changxiao was worried that if too many people joined in, he wouldn’t be able to complete his epic mission!
That was a good problem to consider.
If the final HP of the Fire Dragon Beast was taken by a bystander, it definitely wouldn’t be considered a kill by him or his disciples!
In order to make sure this didn’t happen, it was best to keep others as observers!
Jun Changxiao pointed to a nearby passageway and said, “Please go to that side and observe from there. If you enter arbitrarily, do not blame this Lord for ignoring face.”
They had good intentions and wished to help him, but he actually got mad at them — how impervious!
Those with temperaments flicked their sleeves and directly left, others also retreated.
Soon, this passageway only held the Ironbone Sect. The disciples sat cross-legged and recuperated, striving to adjust to their peak conditions.
Lu Qianqian sat alone in a clearing. She had entered a deep level of meditation, entire body covered in cold energy.
Ye Xingchen was surprised. Does this woman have an ice class physique?
Those without special attributes could cultivate special attributes.
For example, Jun Changxiao.
Without the fire class physique, he still had the Exquisite Flame and could become a fire class martial cultivator.
But if he was compared to someone with a fire class physique, then he would be like an amateur before a professional.
Ye Xingcheng secretly thought, The martial skill that Sect Head handed over yesterday should not be low in rank. If she can comprehend it by tomorrow and freeze a Fire Dragon Beast, her physique must also be extraordinary.
No longer thinking about it, he continued to cultivate the Grand Mysterious True Sutra.
Tomorrow would be a tough battle and he could not just stand by, so he had to carefully prepare.
Li Qingyang and the others also knew that facing the Fire Dragon Beast tomorrow would be the biggest test of this journey, so they also adjusted to their best conditions!
Xiao Zuiji did not cultivate, responsible for look-out.
Jun Changxiao, since he had his cultivation suppressed, did not find cultivation meaningful. He stayed near Lu Qianqian, protecting her while he scrolled through the system store.
Since he would need to refresh the list sooner or later, he might as well do it now.
If he found something to help them kill the Fire Dragon Beast, that would be for the best!
