Painting Of The Nine Immortals Chapter 656
656 The Shackled Powerhouse
The Dark Immortal Gold, similar to the Purple Immortal Gold, were both top notch legendary materials.
Legend had it that the weapons immortals use are all made out of immortal gold. The weapons that are created with such gold are extremely destructive and were ranked number one amongst the heavenly weapons. Compared to these immortal gold weapons, the top-ranked weapons made out of ordinary materials could only be considered scrap metals.
Because of this, the value of the immortal gold was naturally very very high. It was also extremely rare. Even those the size of a fingertip could only be traded with much wealth. If there were a fist-sized Dark Immortal Gold, then a rainstorm of blood could be created and even the most powerful wouldn't be able to stop themselves from lusting after the gold.
Yet before his eyes, there were two chains made entirely out of Dark Immortal Gold. Just how valuable was this?
How could Ling Xian remain calm?
They were the most valuable Dark Immortal Gold!
Even a fist-sized amount could create chaos between the powerful. Yet there were two entire chains of them. How luxurious!
Even with Ling Xian's mentality, he couldn't help but be surprised. Then, his gaze turned more heated.
To have two chains made entirely out of Dark Immortal Gold even if real immortals were here, they would be desiring after it. Ling Xian was no exception.
Perhaps he saw that Ling Xian was tempted, the man in shackles smiled and said in a husky voice, "Young man, it is useless for you to just want it unless you have the ability to take these two chains away. Sadly, I don't think you have that ability."
Hearing this, Ling Xian recollected himself from his emotions and checked out the man with messy hair before him. He began to frown at the sight.
The reason why he wasn't so surprised at this turn of events was that there was a rumor circulating around the Shang Qing Sect.
Legend had it that many years ago, there was a powerhouse who once repressed an enemy in the Shang Qing Sect. However, that enemy's abilities were far too terrifying and nobody could kill him.
Therefore, that powerhouse decided to trap that person inside the Shang Qing Sect.
As for the actual location of where he was trapped it was inside the Volcano of Demons. The reason for it was that they hoped that the power of the volcano could burn the person to dust.
This was why Ling Xian wasn't all that shocked when someone spoke. He merely realized that the rumor was true.
However, now that he saw the person, he was shocked.
All because the two chains were made out of Dark Immortal Gold.
To know that the Dark Immortal Gold was very rare and weapons made out of it were powerful to the extreme. Despite that, it took two entire chains to lock down this man. What did this represent?
It meant this man was very powerful and utterly unpredictable!
"I really do want the chains made out of the Dark Immortal Gold. However, it is also true that there is no way I can take them." Ling Xian grinned and stared straight at the man.
This person, though extremely skinny, was breathing evenly and not at all fatigued. This made Ling Xian's eyes flash with surprise and his evaluation of the man increased.
The temperature of the Volcano of Demons was extremely high and he just experienced it and knew of its terror.
Yet this man has been trapped here for god knows how many years. He was being burned every day while being chained down. Despite this, he didn't look at all exhausted. How terrifyingly capable did he have to be to achieve that?
"Hey, big baby, you need to know what your limits are with words."
The man raised his head and showed off half of his pale face. His eyes were sunk in but the light in his eyes remained bright.
Perhaps it's been a while since he had met someone, there was an awkward and hard smile on his lips. "Since you recognize that my chains are made out of dark immortal gold, you should also know just how powerful they are. These two chains were designed especially for me. In the entire world, not many people can break free of them."
Ling Xian nodded softly. "But, what if I am one of the few?"
"Stop joking around."
The man shook his head. If the one standing before him was of the same level as him, or higher in cultivation levels, then he would be reacting more excitedly.
But Ling Xian was merely a completion leveled cultivator, which only made him think Ling Xian was overestimating himself like an idiot.
"These two chains were made just for me. Only the right key can unlock them. External forces cannot break them."
The man there has been trapped for thousands of years and he was feeling stuffed. Now that he saw Ling Xian, he naturally was energized. Or else he wouldn't be wasting time with a young cultivator of the completion level.
"I believe you understand my capabilities. If I cannot break free of these chains, what makes you think that you, a completion leveled cultivator, can? To put it bluntly, but to say it truthfully, to me, you are an ant that I can kill with a finger."
"That is true. In your eyes, I am nothing significant. But it doesn't mean in the future, I won't be of your level."
Ling Xian looked at him mockingly, "Plus, I never said I was going to destroy it with pure strength."
The man chuckled, not at all believing that Ling Xian could do this. Therefore, he changed the subject, "Let's stop this now. I have been trapped here for thousands of years and it's rare for me to run into people. Stay and talk to me."
"Why don't you find someone else. I have no time to chat." Ling Xian declined.
The man laughed out of anger. There were only two people inside the Volcano of Demons, where was he going to seek out a third person? Looking at the handsome young man, he said softly, "You sure are interesting. Aren't you scared that I will kill you?"
Ling Xian laughed as well as he looked at the man, "You are sealed by chains of the Dark Immortal Gold, do you really have the ability?"
"You sure are smart."
The man glanced at Ling Xian. Though his cultivation was still the same, he was sealed by the chains. All he could do was to defend himself and not attack.
Ling Xian saw through that and that was why he didn't find him threatening.
"Okay, don't bother me as I go into isolation."
With his lips curled, Ling Xian appeared interested and said, "If you stay silent as I breakthrough, then maybe my mood will lift and I will help you get rid of your chains."
Then, he ignored the man and focused on the Golden Dan.
However, the man didn't listen and continued to chatter.
It was obvious that he has been far too lonely. It's been thousands of years and it was already a miracle that he hasn't gone insane.
However, Ling Xian didn't hear a single word he said. Because he had predicted this to happen thus he blocked his own hearing with Qi.
Mumbling, Ling Xian closed his eyes. Moving around the spiritual energy in the air, he began to cultivate.
Though the Golden Dan was showing signs of a breakthrough, he knew that there was a gap between his actual breakthrough. Therefore, he had to perfect his Qi and fill up his Golden Dan.
When he achieves that, he will be able to break through.
This process will for sure be very time-consuming. Based on Ling Xian's estimation, it will take him approximately two to three years. However, no matter how much time it may take, he had to attempt it. Because by being at the advanced level of the completion level, it would mean that
It would mean that he was one step away from undefeatable completion.
