Mystical Journey Chapter 1358
However, these types of spells were not as useful as the first four passive abilities.
Frost Immunity: Garen would be immune to all frost type attacks, including a part of Divine Power’s damage.
Enhanced Breath: Breath which was originally peaked at Level Nine, had been enhanced to Level Thirteen due to the Divinity’s modification.
Elemental Resistance: An increase of 10% resistance towards the four elemental attacks, namely Earth, Water, Wind and Fire type. In addition to Garen’s 10% resistance since he was a Dragon, he now had a very impressive twenty percent resistance.
Lastly, the Enhanced Defense was his core skill.
Enhanced Defense: Divine Creatures shall gain 20 points of defense (currently 50). Negate Divine Power damage by 10%.
This was an overpowered effect as it meant that any normal physical attack which had the strength less than fifty points would be nullified by Garen. He, who already had a powerful physical characteristic that could nullify all attacks from low-level weapons had this ability further enhanced.
Warriors with fifty points of strength were equivalent to the human’s high-ranking Knights. This meant that no one would be able to damage Garen’s scale without a weapon with a unique attribute, regardless if it was the sharpest weapon in the world. This had yet to consider injuring the dragon body under its scales.
In simple terms, Garen was completely immune towards a forefront attack.
Furthermore, with Divine Power being nullified by 10%, it meant that Garen would be able to reduce an incoming Divine Power attack by 10%.
This was the power and special characteristic of being a Divine Creature.
Garen had officially entered the realm of Demigod.
The key difference between a Demigod and a typical living being was the immunity, resistance and the level of defense they possessed.
In overall comparison to a Human Warrior, he who was in a Demigod state would obtain a bunch of spells, a variety of resistances and unique enhancement in his attacks at the same time.
Although there was not much of an improvement in terms of his attributes and Life Force, his lifespan had increased tremendously.
Garen stood on the snowy ground as he reached out his hand. He felt that he could freely control the flow of the heavy snowstorm as if he had total control of the weather with this spell.
This spell would not exhaust his Spell Slot. He did not use a lot of his Spell Slots to begin with as he relied on his melee attacks to kill his enemies.
It was very important for weak beings to save up these Spell Slots but it did not matter to Garen at all as he was a powerful Dragon.
Perhaps he would be able to escape from the grasp of the Spider Web Spell by just wiggling his toenail. The Lower to Middle-Level Spell Slot was meaningless to him other than making his life a little bit more convenient.
“I need to recover my physical condition quickly…” Garen frowned. It was extremely dangerous for a Dragon to not have the power to protect itself in this chaotic era. Furthermore, Tiamat would be able to locate him at any given moment via the Prophecy Spell.
Garen guessed that the reason he was able to devour the Divinity this fast was not because he was decrypting the Divinity but to devour it completely with his Devour Ability. Naturally, the efficiency of the process was much better. Analogically speaking, it was just like using a handphone or taking it apart and researching it thoroughly. There was a difference between the two.
Most of the creatures were the user who used the phone directly whereas Garen was the other type. It played the main role as he had finished analyzing it thoroughly, he would be able to determine more similar Divinity characteristics from a Divinity. As long as he had enough computing power and storage space, he would eventually have the full picture of the Divinity Persona’s structure.
In other words, if Garen were to study the Corrosive Divinity, he would be able to branch out and discover the Death Corrosive Divine Persona and even the Decaying Divine Persona. If he were to analyze the Time Divinity, he would be able to structure the Aging Divine Persona and so on.
The nature of Divinity was ultimately the realization of the universal law from a living creature. It was the natural evolution of the living flesh and the cells’ will to understand the law of nature.
“The fastest way to recover my body is obviously devouring more stuff…” Garen looked around. In theory, the Devouring Ability from the Hellfrost Peacock Queen could convert anything into energy resources. However, items such as snowy water and normal stones would not be able to recover one percent of his body strength even if he were to devour a hundred million tons of them. After all, their characteristics were different and it would require a long time to digest them as well. Furthermore, these substances required less energy to devour as well.
Naturally, the best way to replenish his life force was to devour things which had a Life Force as well.
Garen set his sight onto a snowy hill nearby.
He then walked towards the snowy hill.
He soon arrived in a forest and a few Snow Wolves ran far away as they sensed his presence.
Garen ignored them as he reached out his hand and placed them onto a huge tree.
The tree which was covered in the white snow could be seen wilting with the naked eye. The snow started dropping down to the ground as the big tree which was as thick as a human’s hug quickly arched down. Like an old human, it turned pale as its bark which was rich in water instantly turned rough and wilted as it became a black old tree bark.
On the other hand, Garen’s complexion seemed to have improved slightly.
“It’s unfortunate that I’ve only devoured a small amount of pure Divinity. Perhaps the effect will be much better if it were the Divinity with quality.”
Garen quickly continued to the next tree as he finished absorbing the first tree.
As time passed, Garen soon finished absorbing the entire snowy forest. The skin and muscles on his body started to fill up and he at least did not look wilted anymore.
Garen moved both of his hands.
“This is too slow… Demonic Book!”
The space behind him distorted slightly as a fully black demon with a small violin in his hand appeared.
The man looked cold and handsome as his eyes gave off a faint gold luster.
“Master, what’s your order?”
He bowed down elegantly.
“I want to recover as fast as possible and I need to at least devour a huge amount of living beings. Since my strength is not up to par yet, I’ll let you handle this,” said Garen with a stern face.
“No problem…” The Demonic Book smiled as he gently picked up the small violin in his hand and placed the bow onto the string.
He slowly shut his eyes as if he was engrossed into the environment.
Suddenly, a huge and sharp soundwave spread across the snowy land with him as the epicenter.
A powerful and seductive melody spread across the land along with the snowy wind. There were distorted faces flowing together with the wind as they spread in all directions.
The Holy Phoenix Demonic Book’s expertise was not in killing but an unparalleled seduction and hypnotism.
Soon, the living beings around the snowy land which heard the melody had their eyes turned red. They then walked towards the source of the melody as if their consciousness were completely buried.
As they walked slowly towards the source of the melody, Garen could feel hundreds of Life Force approaching him which were linked like a spider web. There were even dozens of humans, elves and dwarfs among them.
It felt incredibly intriguing as if he was at the center of all lives. These Life Forces kept approaching him without any sign of stopping soon.
Garen could not help but to give off an ecstatic cry.
Far away at the east of the Primary Plane.
At the sky above the mountain range filled with yellow rocks.
Two golden doors slowly appeared. The doors opened up and two Majestic Gods glowing in bright gold came out from them. One of them had a pair of wings, clad in armor and had a long sword in his hand whereas the other had a Crystal Crown on his head and white fiery fire burning at the bottom of his feet.
During the evening hours, the blood red sun gradually set below the horizon as the yellow mountain range started to tremble.
“Fire of the Elves? You dare to come again even though I didn’t eat you up last time?” A humongous snake head slowly appeared between the mountain range. It spitted out the rocks out of its mouth as it stared ill-intently at the God who had fires at the bottom of his feet.
“Leaving the Heavens shall be your greatest remorse.” The Huge Rock Snake started smiling like a villain.
“Greatest remorse?” The Fire of the Elves rubbed the crack on the Crystal Crown as his gaze was filled with killing intent.
“King of the Rocks, today is the day you die!”
A white gold wave-shaped dagger appeared in his hand out of the blue as he gently threw the dagger to the front. Suddenly, the sky turned dimmed as the sun was distorted, releasing a minute amount of gold fire from its center as it flew towards their direction at incredible speed.
“The Sun God’s Light!!” The Huge Rock Snake’s expression turned for the worse as it tried to dig beneath the ground to escape. However, it was too late.
A thin layer of Golden Light had blocked his path, preventing him from drilling further in. It was a Divine Power Barrier unique only to the Higher God, God of the Sun. The Fire of the Elves had even taken out the God of the Sun’s Divine Weapon. Was not he just a Middle God!!?
“To cause chaos upon the True Soul. Today is the day the war among the Gods starts!!” The Fire of the Elves looked like a savage as he nodded towards another God before both of them flew down.
In an instant, the golden light crashed onto the rocks, turning them into dusts. The dusts had covered the entire sky within tens of kilometers in diameter around the area.
In the Void Temple.
“The King of the Rocks has fallen?!!”
The Void Temple was a huge metal vortex and was located at the center of a galaxy. There were countless of metallic rings structured similar to of a galaxy as it rotated slowly. Among them were hundreds of billions of metallic planets rotating slowly, forming into solar system of different sizes.
There was a pond the size of a planet at the core of the metallic galaxy and the source of the voice was the pond.
The pond was filled with silver liquid and ripples were constantly generated due to its viscosity.
“The opponent has started to make their moves… It’s the God of the Sun that had attacked but that’s fine.” Another female voice could be heard. “This will happen sooner or later.”
“Although the beings who had entered the region would improve greatly within a short amount of time, it bears a very huge risk as well. The risks and gains balance up very well.” A voice of an old man chimed in.
“We can’t just do nothing since they’ve already initiated,” said the man who started the conversation coldly.
“The Mother Stream Alliance had already sent their Eye of the Slaughter. We should officially make our move as well…”
A man that was covered in silver metal slowly came out from the silver pond. His body was stabbed with dozens of weapons. These weapons were either rusted or glowing with silver and gold light. There was also a white, slanted bone dagger pierced through the top of his skull. As the sharp dagger was pulled out from his head, the white brain plasma solidified onto the sharp dagger.
This man was already considered dead and yet it flew out of the pond as if he was alive.
He opened up his hand as a small solar system started rotating on his palm.
“Lost. Are you trying to release that thing?!” The woman’s tone from one side sounded rather uncomfortable.
“In this destructive war without compromise where there is no right or wrong. Is there anything more terrifying than this?” The Fallen True Soul started smiling gently.
The remaining True Souls and Demon Lords remained silent.
“God Fehra is nothing. The real trouble right now is the Abyss. That place is hell,” said the Fallen True Soul calmly. “The Child of Hell has appeared. Soon he shall incarnate into a being that could eliminate all beings. I’ve attempted to get in touch with the Abyss but I was rejected. This made me feel extremely uneasy.”
“The Abyss is trying to consume our souls. He’s trying to understand the secret rules of our world. I wasn’t able to stop it but nothing will not come out without paying a price for messing me around…!” The Fallen True Soul’s eyes turned black as he stared at the solar system in his hand.
