Immortal and Martial Dual Cultivation Chapter 1758
Chapter 1758 (Raw 1770): Dare to Fight, Dare to Gamble
According to the memories from the Faux God Flame, there should be a hidden library in the northern part of the city.
That place was once the Martial Technique Pavilion of the largest clan in this dragon city. It was chock full of Dragon Race Cultivation Techniques and Martial Techniques, among which were some peak Cultivation Techniques.
Aside from the Primogenitor Grade, the other Cultivation Techniques of the Central Great Realm were classified into three grades: Heaven Grade, Earth Grade, and Mortal Grade. Each grade was subdivided into four subgrades: Inferior, Medial, Superior, and Peak.
Further down would be the mediocre Cultivation Techniques. There were various ways to classify them and no way to categorize everything properly.
For regular cultivators, being able to obtain an orthodox Mortal Grade Martial Technique was already considered remarkably lucky, something very hard to come by.
The Thousand Army Sword Technique that Xiao Chen had obtained was a famous Peak Mortal Grade Martial Technique in the Central Great Realm.
In the Central Great Realm, Cultivation Techniques and Martial Techniques were strictly classified.
Many of the Martial Techniques and Cultivation Techniques of the sects in the various clusters were not even considered Mortal Grade in the Central Great Realm.
When a Cultivation Technique or Martial Technique reached the Earth Grade, it would commonly be referred to as a divine technique.
This was due to the incredibly vast might of those Martial Techniques. They were very hard to cultivate and very rare and precious as well.
For example, the Sword Technique that Huangpu Qi practiced was an Inferior Earth Grade Sword Technique, also commonly known as a divine technique.
Xiao Chen had seen its might for himself before.
The northern part of the dragon city lay in ruins as well. Xiao Chen searched around according to the memories from the inheritance.
Without spending too much time, he located that hidden library.
That library had collapsed long ago. Its restrictions no longer existed. Many of the Cultivation Techniques and Martial Techniques had also gotten burned.
There were very few complete Martial Techniques.
Xiao Chen took a look at one book. It was incomplete, which he felt was very unfortunate, and it showed on his face.
Many of the Martial Techniques here were Superior Mortal Grade Martial Techniques. Some were even the so-called divine techniques.
Some of these even tempted Xiao Chen.
He seriously put away every single book, regardless of completeness. In the future, when he had time, he would try to restore all of them.
These were all Cultivation Techniques and Martial Techniques suited to the Dragon Race physique. If Xiao Chen wanted to revive the Azure Dragon bloodline, he would need a complete systematic set of Martial Techniques ranging from low to high.
“Ice Feather Divine Incantation…”
Suddenly, Xiao Chen discovered a complete Medial Earth Grade Cultivation Technique. His eyes lit up automatically.
He had not used a Cultivation Technique to cultivate his will of ice.
Now, with the aid of the Purple Thunder Divine Incantation, Xiao Chen’s will of thunder was slowly growing stronger. This created a widening disparity between the two wills .
Hence, Xiao Chen had been using the Ice Blood Lightning Dragon, one of his killing moves, less often because its might was beginning to lag behind.
“There shouldn’t be any problem with cultivating an ice-attributed Cultivation Technique, taking the Ice Thunder Dao that no one had taken before,” Xiao Chen muttered to himself, a vague notion stirring in his heart.
Cultivators who cultivated the thunder attribute normally supplemented it with a wind-attributed or cloud-attributed Cultivation Technique, taking the Wind Thunder Dao.
However, no one had taken the Ice Thunder Dao before because making the two attributes work together was too hard. Most people could not do it.
Xiao Chen’s talent at both attributes was pretty good. Furthermore, he managed to create a killing move, the Ice Blood Lightning Dragon.
He might be able to walk the path of the Ice Thunder Dao.
Having made up his mind, Xiao Chen put away this Ice Feather Divine Incantation’s manual, prepared to cultivate another Cultivation Technique when he had free time.
After he finished searching this place, he sighed as he looked at the dilapidated dragon city.
Then, he continued to hunt through the dragon city.
With the aid of the memories from the inheritance, Xiao Chen always found something in the vast ruin.
One month later, he had looted all the treasures in the devastated dragon city.
His harvest surpassed his expectations.
Xiao Chen gave the dragon city one last grave look before leaving the dragon city for the surface.
It was just a few dozen days, but when he returned to the surface, he had the misperception of one thousand years having passed.
The change was too drastic. The current Xiao Chen was utterly different from the Xiao Chen from before.
Before entering the dragon city, how could Xiao Chen have expected that in just dozens of days, his cultivation would break through to late-stage Major Primal Core Realm, his Vital Qi would reach ten Cauldron Force, and he would even form the will of soul that he sought in his dreams?
Xiao Chen took out that talisman bamboo strip and crushed it.
A patch of mottled light and shadows immediately appeared under Xiao Chen’s feet, constantly flickering. After about seven minutes, a complete formation emerged.
With an enormous energy surge, Xiao Chen vanished.
When Xiao Chen appeared again, he was back at the ancient transportation formation in the northern city of Dragon Flame City.
“The bladesman Xiao Chen?”
When Xiao Chen appeared, the old man taking care of the formation revealed a strange expression.
Xiao Chen sighed softly before asking, “Sir, you know me?”
“Haha! Who in the city does not know about you, White Robed Xiao Chen? You chased away three factions alone. Even the Snow Sword Palace’s Huangpu Qi suffered greatly at your hands.”
When Xiao Chen heard that, he felt stunned. The news had spread really fast.
“However, the critical point is that rumor says you inherited a Faux God Flame and obtained an ancient Dragon Race totem. Right now, it is not just the Snow Sword Palace’s Huangpu Qi who wants your life but also Senior Ma’s and Senior Liu’s teams.”
A strange light flashed in the old man’s eyes as he smiled.
Suddenly, the old man attacked, punching at Xiao Chen and projecting his aura.
With this punch, the sky changed color.
This was the sudden strike of a peak Major Primal Core expert. Its might was tremendous.
If it were the Xiao Chen of the past, he would definitely be flustered, needing a moment to calm himself.
Now, Xiao Chen only smiled coldly.
The instant Xiao Chen appeared in the formation, he already felt something off with this old man.
Thus, he kept an eye out and was not surprised at the sudden attack.
With a thought, the Vital Qi in Xiao Chen’s body surged. The dragon bones in his body crackled.
Then, he used his horrifying physical body to forcibly receive the other party’s punch.
A loud sound rang out as Xiao Chen received this punch head-on. The strengthened dragon bones blocked most of the damage. The flow of Veritable Essence Energy easily dispelled the remnant force.
Despite receiving the punch head-on, Xiao Chen was unscathed.
“How can this be?”
That old man was shocked, making an extremely horrified expression, somewhat stupefied.
Although the old man’s sudden attack was not his peak strike, its might was not small at all.
Nevertheless, not only was Xiao Chen not injured, but he did not take even half a step back, either.
By the time the old man felt that something was wrong and wanted to retreat, the surging Vital Qi in Xiao Chen’s body had poured out.
“Dang! Dang! Dang!”
Ten dragon cauldrons formed by Vital Qi above Xiao Chen’s head knocked against each other, producing an ear-splitting sound.
Xiao Chen returned the punch, and ten Cauldron Force exploded, sending the old man flying.
The old man crashed to the ground in a sorry state, his clothes tattered and his flesh badly mangled.
After tidying his clothes, Xiao Chen strode off. When the other old men nearby, who were maintaining the formation, saw this scene, they were stunned. However, no one dared to block Xiao Chen’s way.
This was Dragon Flame City, where strength ruled. The experts were the law here.
Xiao Chen thought for a while. It should be Huangpu Qi who leaked the news about him.
This piqued the greed of the various cultivators in the city. Even the old men who guarded and maintained the formation were tempted into action.
“Young Master Xiao, quickly leave Dragon Flame City. This is a place where there is no right or wrong. You should not linger,” a kindhearted old man nearby advised Xiao Chen.
“Leave? Why should I leave? Tell everyone that for the next half-year, I, Xiao Chen, will stay in the northern city and not go anywhere!”
Xiao Chen smiled calmly and continued on his way.
The current situation suited Xiao Chen’s intent.
Dragon Flame City teemed with hidden talents and experts.
Now that Xiao Chen sent this old man flying with a punch, many people would reevaluate their strength first before going to attack him.
Those that dared to seek trouble for Xiao Chen would be bold and skilled people, people with genuine talent.
Xiao Chen’s strength had improved too quickly, and he had not had the time to stabilize it yet. Having an endless stream of experts to train with would be ideal.
This was something that Xiao Chen wanted and wished for, so why would he leave?
If Xiao Chen died in this Dragon Flame City, he could only blame himself for lacking skill. There was nothing to say about that.
Since Xiao Chen was born in an abandoned land, his starting point was much lower than that of many people in the Great Thousand Realms.
Without a heart that dared to fight and to gamble, he would have no chance of rising.
In a mere half-day, the news of Xiao Chen’s return spread throughout the northern city of Dragon Flame City.
Many people immediately rubbed their hands in glee, raring to go.
There had never been any rules or ethics in Dragon Flame City.
However, the news of Xiao Chen sending a peak Major Primal Core cultivator flying with one punch accompanied the news of his return. This immediately splashed cold water on many people.
