Chen Rui was also shocked as he looked at the crown in his hand.
When the man in the cloak activated the thorny crown just now, his mind felt a sense of strength as if he felt the call of a certain power. Shortly afterward, the thorny crown fell into his hands inexplicably.
This feeling of the crown automatically falling into his hand was like a missile, that was switched on, looking for the most suitable launcher (or carrier) to launch it. The previous man in the cloak couldn’t bear the power of ‘launch’, so after it sensed the existence of Chen Rui, the crown abandoned its ‘old love’ without hesitation and chose him automatically.
Immediately afterward, a very strong light element power came from the crown, which merged into Chen Rui’s body, producing a kind of catalytic effect. Chen Rui only felt that the Star Power in his body, which had been refined to the limit, was recombined and refined in a new way, emitting purer and stronger energy, then it was fed back into the thorny crown. The crown began to emit an unprecedented amount of bright light.
Even the poison dragon on the side couldn’t look directly at the dazzling light, and he subconsciously channeled out the kingdom power to resist. Meanwhile, the slime, who was almost blinded, transformed into a sucker, deadly holding onto the master’s shoulders to avoid falling.
The light extended to the sea in the distance. Wherever it passed, the blood mist made a ‘buzz buzz’ overlapping sound like the screams of some living creature. It rolled back and dissipated.
The members of the Holy Church felt that the speed of recovery from their injuries had suddenly increased several times, and they were all amazed.
The man in the cloak’s arms, which had almost collapsed, gradually recovered under the action of this light. Feeling the unimaginable power of divine healing, the man in the cloak couldn’t help but be intrigued – He can actually exert such power of the Crown of Thorns. The real strength of this person…
No! More precisely, the physique of this person…
Chen Rui didn’t pay attention to these as his attention was all focused on the special feeling of the thorny crown blending with the strength in his body, which seemed to be a kind of bloodline connection. The spirit power and soul power got a kind of improvement similar to tempering under the different force of the crown. What was even more surprising was that even the original vaguely creation origin in the body became a little clearer.
Unexpectedly, the crown has such a magical effect. Chen Rui couldn’t help but be overjoyed. His mind shifted and he had already used [Deep Analysis]. The progress had changed rapidly. 1, 2, 3… More than half of it had been analyzed in the blink of an eye.
“[Deep Analysis]” had helped Chen Rui get good stuff like the 7 artifacts and the Tower of Glory, but most of them were ‘stubborn’ and needed a long time for ‘thought transformation’ to succeed. However, the thorny crown in front of him was unimaginably smooth. It was like an adulterer and a woman, um, that… an idiot and a miserable woman hit it off.
Chen Rui vaguely guessed that this perfect integration should have something to do with the [Body of Light Glory], and it was also the real reason why the crown came to him on its own.
When the Black Death Followers on the 3 ships saw something amiss, several powerful guardians flew out, wanting to raid this unexpected ‘enemy’. At this time, Master Slime, who had already adapted to the ‘harmless’ light, immediately greeted them. The transparent fist that stretched 10 meters like a rubber shook a few times, and the ‘Saint powerhouses’ who were respected in the human world were annihilated.
For Dodo, who was about to reach the intermediate stage of Kingdom level, these minions were only the background for Master Slime’s truly handsome appearance.
Dodo’s action was within Chen Rui’s expectation. He was happy to concentrate on analyzing the thorny crown. After a while, the analysis was completed.
The original light green of the crown had turned into a white jade-like crystal color. The shape was more solemn and luxurious, and the light released was more pure and soft.
Chen Rui put it lightly on his head. When the seemingly sharp spikes touched Chen Rui’s head, they turned into phantasms immersed in the hair, which merged with his head without the slightest feeling of discomfort. Instead, it looked like the crown of the ruler. His whole body was wrapped with a special temperament of sacred and noble.
This fusion was not only a decoration. Chen Rui sensed that his soul power had at least doubled, and the Star Power in his body had become more refined and consolidated under the previous tempering. The most gratifying thing was that in the spiritual imprint, there was a special insight of the power of creation origin.
Origin law was the most mysterious power. The reason why Chen Rui mastered the complete destruction origin law so quickly was that in addition to the functions of [Deep Analysis] and training ground, Shura’s destruction was the most important reason.
However, creation origin was different. He did not have the advantage of ‘creation body’ like Shura, so he could only rely on his own comprehension. It had been difficult to make progress before, so he had never been able to grasp the essentials. Unexpectedly, he took the first step today —Although it was only a small step, although it was only a trace of incomplete creation origin, it was also an extremely valuable beginning.
On the skill tree of the Super System, 2 additional skills appeared.
[Divine Healing]——The most powerful healing without hidden injuries. It fundamentally repairs the wounds of the soul and body and promotes the power of regeneration. Can be used once an hour. (can lock multiple targets)
[Divine Blessing]—Attracting the holy power, dispelling all evil forces, purifying and transforming physique. Can be activated once every hour. (Can choose purification or conversion mode; can lock multiple targets)
[Divine Blessing] was supposed to restrain powers other than light, and it had immunity to debuff effects such as illusion and poison. This might be a very strong skill for others, but for him who owned the Super System, the functions were somewhat redundant.
[Divine Healing] was definitely an S-level skill. [Treatment] was generally divided into 2 categories: light element and water element. Water element was relatively mild, but the effect was obviously inferior to the light element. However, no matter which one it was, the principle was to stimulate the body’s potential to heal the injury in advance. Generally, every time one receives healing magic, he must rest for at least 3-5 days. If the frequency of use was too high, the potential was stimulated again when the body had not fully recovered, it would cause permanent inner injuries to the body and cause great hidden dangers.
In a sense, [Treatment] was also a killing technique.
The side effects of potion were smaller, but it was also unavoidable. The higher the grade and purity of potion, the smaller the side effects. For example, the 100% pure potion produced by the Super System. Therefore, both potion and healing magic had a ‘cooldown’. If they were used repeatedly during this time, the effect would be greatly reduced, and it would also bring hidden dangers.
Now this [Divine Healing] had no hidden dangers at all, and it also had various powerful abilities such as soul repair, [Regeneration], etc. For Chen Rui, who had many friends, it was definitely a divine must-have skill for group travel and combat.
When Chen Rui analyzed the Crown of Thorns, Paglio, who was eager, had already easily dealt with the Black Death Followers of the 3 ships, not giving the slime a chance to act cool again – Although as a super powerhouse, he disdained doing something to ordinary people, Paglio would not be lenient to those guys who dared to take the initiative to provoke and attack.
The 3 ships began to decay and peel off in the blink of an eye, and the screams continued. After a while, all the people and the ship turned into green mists and dissipated. Paglio’s poison had been integrated with the law power, so with every gesture, he could release super strong poison. Although it was incomparable with Python’s ‘speaking and law following’ might, among the super powerhouse, he was also 1 of the best poison law masters.
This scene made everyone in the Holy Church tremble with fear – The 3 ships that had just forced their side to be almost destroyed, were actually annihilated by that person’s gesture!
Due to the previous battle, the scarred large ship finally began to collapse. The Holy Church believers quickly organized manpower and boarded the emergency small ship. Since most of these people were well-trained Glorious Knights, they appeared well-organized and not chaotic.
The man in the cloak flew over slowly and stopped at a distance of about 6 meters in front of Chen Rui. His position was slightly lower, showing a respectful attitude.
“Thank you for your help.” The man in the cloak bowed slightly and took off the cloak on his head, “Holy Church, Gralin. Smore pays respect to 3 sirs.”
This was a middle-aged man with a thin face. His strength was an intermediate stage of the Demon Overlord. The word ‘Gralin’ was a popular existence in the human world, not because of his combat power, but because of his identity – 1 of the 3 major cardinals of the Holy Church!
The positions of the Holy Church from high to low were the pope, archbishop, cardinal, chief bishop, bishop, pastor, deacon, common friar or nun.
In addition to the Holy Light Mountain’s 3 giant leaders Vantis, Archbishop Pusmeer and Eudora, the 3 cardinal had the most authority in the Holy Church. Only Tribunal Chief Judge Seus and Paladin Captain Parsali could be compared with them.
When Chen Rui stole the Snow Dallet Tree that year, he had a brief fight with the 3 cardinals at the Snowy Summit Stage. He did not expect to ‘reunite’ under such circumstances, let alone that this Sir Cardinal would actually be pursued by the Black Death Followers at sea over a few nights.
In fact, Chen Rui and others were not reinforcements. If it wasn’t for the accident of the thorny crown, they might just pass by by chance; they were even thoughtful people who deliberately watched the battle, but Gralin still put on a very humble attitude. Of course, it was related to the strength shown by Dodo and Paglio.
Chen Rui knew that Gralin’s intention was not simply to thank him. The most important thing was the thorny crown on his head. At that moment, he pretended not to know Gralin’s identity and nodded slightly.
Gralin immediately saw that this blond man whose apparent strength was only Warrior was the leader of the 3 people (2 people and 1 bug). He was surprised, and bowed, “May I ask the name of sir?”
“I just happened to pass by…” Chen Rui didn’t want to say his name.
Gralin didn’t ask any further. Looking at the crown that had turned into white jade, his gaze became even more bizarre. Finally, he spoke up, “This is the holy relic, Crown of Thorns…”
“Oh.” Chen Rui replied casually, resembling Ms. Fairy Dragon. He was obviously planning to snatch this treasure crown.
—— So what if it’s a holy relic? Even the Wind Badge placed in the temple of your old nest is being worn at the feet of my wife.
