Chapter 1197: Baptism
“Long Zhu, are you sure”
Illumination Dragon Elder Four had a grim expression as he whispered, “The Ancestral Dragons baptism is extraordinary and must not be joked about! If you cant withstand it…”
Although he did not continue, the meaning behind his words was clear.
Long Cang frowned slightly as well and said in a deep voice, “Long Zhu, you had better calm down.
If you take a step back now, youll only lose an arm.
However, you will lose your life if youre unable to endure the baptism of the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar!”
Although Long Cangs words were unpleasant, it was out of goodwill.
However, Su Zimo had already made up his mind and shook his head.
When he saw that, Illumination Dragon Elder Four no longer tried to persuade him.
Elder Scorpion did not continue pushing and smiled faintly.
Ill be a witness as well to see how strong this generations young master of the Illumination Dragon lineage is!”
“Everyone, lets go.”
Illumination Dragon Elder Four looked at the Blue Dragon elder and the others and said.
A single elder of the Dragon race wont be enough to activate the baptism of the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar – there had to be at least five!
Everyone headed towards the center of the Dragon Bone Valley.
“Long Zhu, you were a little rash,”
Long Xi was worried.
“The baptism of the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar wont be so easy to endure.
Some dragons fail even after entering the Dharma Characteristic realm!”
“Since things have come to this, I can only give it a shot.”
Su Zimo smiled calmly with a relaxed expression.
Before long, the news that Long Zhu was about to receive the baptism of the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar spread through the entire Dragon Bone Valley!
“What Long Zhu is going to receive the baptism of the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar Isnt he at the Void Reversion realm”
“Could he have broken through”
“Impossible! Look, hes still the top of the Hidden Dragon Ranking!”
“Long Zhu has gone mad! Hes going to receive the baptism of the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar at the Void Reversion realm!”
When the news spread, it was like a stone that caused a thousand ripples and caused an uproar.
Almost all the dragons that were not in seclusion were alarmed and moved one after another, rushing towards the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar in the central region.
Before long, more than a thousand dragons were gathered around the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar and they were densely packed with voices!
The Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar stood upright in the skies.
Grayish-white in color, it gave off an ancient aura and was located right in the middle of the Dragon Bone Valley.
It could be said that the valley and the habitat of the Dragon race was built around the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar – it was clear how much this pillar meant to the Dragon race!
Legend has it that the stone pillar came from the immortal world and had existed since the primordial era.
There was even an Ancestral Dragon spirit within the stone pillar!
It was the lifelike five-clawed divine dragon etched on the stone pillar.
Of course, there were many other legends about the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar.
Around the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar was a spacious, five-pointed stone platform.
At that moment, Su Zimo stood on the stone platform beneath the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar with a calm expression and a resolute gaze!
In the five corners of the stone platform, Illumination Dragon Elder Four and the other five dragon elders stood still.
“Long Zhu, have you decided Its not too late to regret now.”
Illumination Dragon Elder Four said sternly, “Once the baptism begins, even we cant stop it.
If you meet with danger, no one will be able to save you!”
“Thank you for your concern, elder.
Ive made up my mind!”
Su Zimo nodded.
Illumination Dragon Elder Four said in a deep voice, “Everyone, lets begin!”
The elders of the five lineages exchanged glances and conjured hand seals respectively, spitting out obscure words that possessed a strange power that shook the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar!
That was a language unique to the Dragon race.
The five elders cut their fingertips at the same time and squeezed out a drop of blood.
Fusing it into their hand seals, it formed a blood beam that entered the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar.
The Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar could only be activated with the bloodline of the Dragon race as a medium and a secret skill!
None of the dragons present were unfamiliar with it.
They had been in the Dragon Bone Valley for countless years and had witnessed the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar opening countless times.
However, this was extremely novel to the witches.
A witch whispered, “Elder Scorpion, do you think Long Zhu will be able to receive the baptism of the Ancestral Dragon Pillar successfully”
Elder Scorpion sneered, “Absolutely impossible!”
“Havent you heard Even that five-clawed divine dragon was only baptized after reaching the Dharma Characteristic realm.
This lads bloodline is impure.
Can he compare to a five-clawed divine dragon” Another witch explained.
“What if Long Zhu is the young master of the Illumination Dragon lineage after all.”
The witch said.
This time round, Elder Scorpion said nothing.
However, he sent a voice transmission secretly with his spirit consciousness, “Even if that lad manages to survive, Ill be able to cripple him without anyone knowing given my capabilities!”
With Elder Scorpions words, the many witches no longer had any worries.
Right then, the elders of the five lineages shouted at the same time.
Suddenly, the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar vibrated with a loud bang!
Right in front of everyone, one of the divine dragons claws lit up beneath its abdomen, as though it was burning with flames!
Immediately after, divine dragons blazing with flames burst forth from the stone pillars and filled the skies.
At a glance, they were dense and emitted a terrifying might!
That scene was extremely shocking!
It was alright for the dragons present – most of them had seen this before.
However, the witches looked somewhat pale.
The divine dragons blazing with scarlet flames circled in midair for a moment before lowering their heads and charging towards Su Zimo who was beneath the stone pillar!
Those divine dragons were formed from the dragon qi in the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar.
The so-called baptism was the infusion of dragon qi into ones body.
The dragon qi would constantly refine and nourish the body and bloodline of the Dragon race, causing their combat strength to increase exponentially!
Under normal circumstances, if an Illumination Dragon were to undergo the baptism, he would awaken the dragon qi of the Illumination Dragon lineage.
A Winged Dragon would awaken the dragon qi of the Winged Dragon lineage.
Of course, that was not absolute.
If there was a dragon with exceptional talent and a pure and powerful bloodline, the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar would naturally sense it and awaken even more dragon qi!
For example, Long Cang possessed the bloodline of a five-clawed divine dragon and the Ancestral Dragon Divine Pillar released as much dragon qi as the five lineages!
Although the scene before them was shocking, in reality, it was merely the awakening of a single lineages dragon qi.
That was because only a single claw of the five-clawed divine dragon etched on the stone pillar lit up!
Countless scarlet divine dragons swooped down and surged into Su Zimos body from all directions!
A massive scorching power exploded within his body!
Su Zimo grunted and his body swayed.
That power was way too domineering and pure, almost burning every single inch of his flesh!
Bang! Boom! Boom!
Su Zimo channeled his bloodline and a tsunami surged, attempting to contain that power.
However, he turned into a gigantic flaming man before long and scarlet flames burst forth from his body!
Under the baptism of the dragon qi, cracks appeared on his skin in a shocking manner!
