Chapter 790 – Refining
As the space fluctuations dissipated, this region became completely quiet. However, Cai Xiao’s face was a little unsightly. Although Fang Yi only managed to get away with an unripe Dragon-Phoenix Fruit, when had she suffered such loss after all these years? With the rage in her heart, she nearly lost control and wanted to chase after and kill Fang Yi, even at the ends of the earth.
“That fellow is cunning.” Mu Chen frowned his brows as he raised his caution against Fang Yi in his heart. To be able to snatch a Dragon-Phoenix Fruit despite him and Cai Xiao joining together, Fang Yi’s capability was simply a little monstrous.
Furthermore, he did not know how that fellow followed them. With Cai Xiao’s prudence, she must have checked along the way, but she still couldn’t notice Fang Yi, who had secretly followed them. Clearly, that fellow had also come up with a method to deal with Cai Xiao after being previously noticed.
Furthermore, that person knew how to endure. Even when Cai Xiao fought with the golden-armoured Guardian earlier, he did not move and only waited until Cai Xiao had executed her strongest move. He waited till her strength was weakened, before acting out.
However, he had clearly belittled Cai Xiao’s strength. Therefore, in that last moment, he was still caught by Cai Xiao and powerfully had two matured Dragon-Phoenix Fruit snatched from him.
But now that he had already been revealed, he probably wouldn’t dare to return. Otherwise, Cai Xiao, who’s raging, wouldn’t let him leave after coming.
“I won’t let him go.” Cai Xiao frowned her brows, her voice a little cold. Judging from the looks of it, she didn’t intend to let that fellow, who dared to secretly steal from her, off so easily.
“Refine the Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour first. Even if that fellow has a few more guts, he won’t dare to return anymore.” Cai Xiao gradually suppressed the rage in her heart as she said towards Mu Chen.
Mu Chen nodded his head with a smile. He did not say anything further and his figure moved, landing on a rock beside the Dragon-Phoenix Pool. Thereafter, he sat down and grasped his hands. The Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour, which was flickering with golden light, appeared in his palms.
This Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour was extremely exquisite, with the ancient runes on the dragon scales. Furthermore, what was shocking was the fact that this wasn’t forged. The True Dragon scales and True Phoenix wings were something forged when the Blood Essences of those two fused together. This sort of divine object was something born from the gathering of Spiritual Energy in the heavens and earth.
Mu Chen clenched his hand and purple flames of Spiritual Energy appeared, before enveloping the Dragon-Phoenix Armour. A high temperature was emitted, which made this region swiftly burn.
When the purple flames burned the Dragon-Phoenix Golden Amour, Mu Chen bit his tongue and a mouthful of blood essence fell onto the golden armour, which was emitting bubbling noises.
A golden light surged on the Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour as it vaguely emitted draconic roars and phoenix cries in an attempt to stop the invasion of blood essence.
However, Mu Chen wasn’t the slightest bit impatient. He patiently controlled the purple flames to burn the Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour. As time passed, a golden liquid appeared on the surface of the Dragon-Phoenix Armour, it was because of the dragon scales being burned.
However, even though the golden liquid was only the surface defence of the Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour, it was sufficient for Mu Chen. As he willed, the blood essence merged with the golden liquid. As the two fused, they slowly covered the Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour.
As the two fused, Mu Chen’s blood essence was swiftly leaving a blood essence imprint on the Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour, linking with it in the process.
Originally speaking, it wouldn’t be that easy to refine a Divine Artifact. But, fortunately, the Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour was an ownerless item at the moment, so the resistance was also extremely weak. Furthermore, Mu Chen had formed the Ersatz Dragon Physique, so there was a strand of dragon aura in his body. Therefore, the Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour did not reject his blood essence imprint, allowing him to leave it on.
The entire process was as smooth as flowing water.
When the imprint was formed, Mu Chen immediately sensed the link he had with the Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour and a smear of a smile appeared on his face. The smoothness of this had probably exceeded his expectations.
He gently waved his hand and the Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour turned into a golden light as it shot over. Shortly after, the liquid swiftly expanded on the surface of his body. In a few breaths’ time, a ferocious golden armour had enveloped Mu Chen’s figure.
Mu Chen lowered his head and looked at the golden armour that had covered him. Lustre flickered on the golden dragon scales, displaying it’s powerful defence. That defence seemed like it could take any attack.
Mu Chen sensed how powerful the Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour was and estimated that if he were to fight with Liu Yan again, the Sky Burning Feather could no longer heavily injure him.
“What a good treasure.”
Mu Chen sighed. The defensive capability of this Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour was stronger than his Lightning God’s Physique. Except that one was the strength of physique, while the other was an external object.
His heart lightly shook as the Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour turned into golden light and was concealed beneath his skin. He could immediately summon it as he wished with a single will.
After refining this Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour, Mu Chen stood up and directed his heated gaze at the Dragon-Phoenix Pool, which was filled with golden pool water. The dragon and phoenix blood essences contained in this super Dragon-Phoenix Pool had far exceeded the previous one he had encountered.
Furthermore, he wanted to try and see if he could fuse the blood essences of the True Dragon and Phoenix into his body, forming the Dragon-Phoenix Physique that no one had accomplished so far.
Mu Chen deeply inhaled a mouthful of air and gently nodded his head at Cai Xiao. He no longer hesitated as he moved, turning into a beam of light and charged into the Dragon-Phoenix Pool.
The golden pool water splashed. Every single drop had the weight of a thousand catty. When it fell, it caused waves in the Dragon-Phoenix Pool.
When Mu Chen charged into the Dragon-Phoenix Pool, he abruptly felt his entire body becoming heavier and the surrounding water was like a mountain pressing on his body. It had actually made him feel a stinging pain on his body.
“Indeed worthy of being a Super Dragon-Phoenix Pool.”
But this abnormal situation did not make Mu Chen panic. On the contrary, he rejoiced, since he could sense how dense the Blood Essences of the True Dragon and Phoenix in this golden water was. Those blood essences were from the bodies of the True Dragon and Phoenix, no longer polluted by any beasts, so he did not have to refine them. The purity was several times higher than the dragon and phoenix blood essences refined from the blood of the Demonic Ape.
Mu Chen’s figure sank to the deepest level, enduring the weight of this entire Dragon-Phoenix Pool. That weight even caused the skin on the surface of his body to crack.
If it wasn’t for the Ersatz Dragon Physique that he had formed before, his skin and flesh would’ve been torn apart by now.
Sensing the mountain-like terrifying pressure, Mu Chen slowly opened his arms and formed seals. A suction form started to burst out from his body.
A vortex was formed at the bottom of this Dragon-Phoenix Pool as strands of golden water whistled around him. Thereafter, there were drops of refined dark-golden liquid, which fell onto Mu Chen’s skin.
When those golden liquids fell onto Mu Chen’s body, they entered through his pores. Instantly, a dazzling golden light burst out from Mu Chen’s body, along with vague roars and cries of a dragon and phoenix.
Some dragon and phoenix runes started to appear on his skin. But the moment they appeared, they were already devouring each other. The incompatible attitude seemed like they wanted to completely devour the other party before stopping.
“So they started to devour each other again.”
Sensing this, Mu Chen deeply sucked in a mouthful of air as a golden light bloomed with a will of his heart. The Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour had enveloped the surface of his body.
When the Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour appeared, a golden dragon image could be vaguely seen on Mu Chen’s chest and a phoenix on his back.
Along with the appearance of those dragon and phoenix images, the entire Dragon-Phoenix Pool instantly stirred and the golden water split into two. It was like they were returning back to their nests as they endlessly poured towards the dragon and phoenix images.
The dragon and phoenix images roared towards the sky, forming into two golden lights that shot out before fusing together above Mu Chen. The head and tail of the dragon and phoenix joined together into a spinning wheel.
Two currents of golden water separately whistled over as they poured into the Dragon-Phoenix Wheel. Instantly, a golden light blossomed, which made Mu Chen feel a stinging pain in his eyes.
Although he felt a stinging pain in his eyes, he still kept his eyes opened as he looked at the spinning Dragon-Phoenix Wheel.
As golden light spread out, more and more blood essences of the dragon and phoenix poured in as a golden light flickered beneath the Dragon-Phoenix Wheel.
When the intensity of the golden light reached a limit, Mu Chen suddenly narrowed his eyes and saw a drop of dark-golden blood essence slowly forming under the Dragon-Phoenix Wheel.
Within that drop of blood essence, he could see an extremely small True Dragon and Phoenix circling within with an indescribable profundity emitting from it.
Mu Chen deeply inhaled a mouthful of chilled air. This drop of blood essence actually contained the power of both the True Dragon and Phoenix at the same time. So this Dragon-Phoenix Golden Armour did indeed possess such a special ability!
That drop of dark-golden blood essence trembled as it condensed, before falling at the centre of Mu Chen’s brows, under his excited expression, and entered.
In that instant, when the blood essence entered, Mu Chen felt as if his mind had exploded. An extremely ancient dragon roar and phoenix cry rang out from the distance, as if they had penetrated through space!
