The Almighty Dragon General Chapter 2618–The uniqueness of James’ physical body — the Demonic Body, the Elemental Holy Body, and the Sword Body — and his cultivation combined allowed him to resist the first lightning tribulation.
His current physical strength was terrifying, and he had reached the peak of the Tribulation Rank’s Third Stage.
If he could resist the second lightning tribulation and absorb its power to refine his body, his physical strength would cross into the Sage Rank.
After consuming the healing elixir Sophie gave him, his injuries completely recovered, and he returned to peak condition.
“Come.” He was prepared.
Looking at the sky, silverish-white lightning gathered under the dark clouds.
Soon, a lightning bolt hundreds of meters wide and tens of kilometers long was suspended in the sky, radiating a blinding white light and exuding a destructive aura.
“How terrifying…” Upon seeing this, the powerful figures in the distance could not help but feel a chill down their spine.
Their presence here could only mean that they had overcome Heavenly Tribulations before.
As such, they had a rough understanding of Heavenly Tribulations.
Under normal circumstances, the Heavenly Tribulation would at most be tens of meters in width and hundreds of meters in length.
However, the current Heavenly Tribulation was tens of kilometers long.
Like a dragon in the sky, it radiated such power that made everyone stagger backward unconsciously.
“Fall back!” When they saw such a majestic lightning tribulation, the spectators all retreated to the rear before the lightning tribulation could descend.
Rumble! The lightning tribulation made a rumbling noise in the sky.
Its power was so overwhelming that the space in the region was destabilized and cracks began to appear.
At that moment, a lightning tribulation descended from the sky.
There was no sound at all.
Soon, the lightning tribulation struck the ground.
Time froze, or perhaps slowed down to such an extent that it appeared to be unmoving.
In an instant, a fissure appeared on the ground that had been wrecked and utterly destroyed.
At extraordinary speed, the fissure expanded and formed a deep abyss.
Then, as the lightning tribulation’s power permeated the air, the fissure grew in size, and the soil and rocks in the surroundings were turned to ashes, disintegrating into nothingness.
James’ physical body was struck by lightning tribulation once again.
At that moment, unable to withstand the power, cracks began to appear on his body.
Then, all kinds of power immediately escaped his body— Demonic Energy, Elemental Power, and Sword Energy—and tenaciously defended against the lightning tribulation.
However, the lightning tribulation’s power was too immense.
Unable to withstand the overwhelming force, James immediately suffered grave injuries.
His head spun, and he could feel his soul leaving his body.
‘Am I going to die?’ The thought of death flashed through his mind.
‘No, I can’t die.
I have to hang in there!’ A powerful conviction surfaced in his mind.
Initially, he did not plan to use True Essence to resist the lightning tribulation.
However, the lightning tribulation’s power was too immense, and he could not resist the energy using his physical body alone.
At that moment, he catalyzed True Essence.
True Essence enveloped his body, forming a shapeless halo on the surface of his skin to block the lightning tribulation’s attack.
