Mysteries of the Planes
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
As Tang Wulin listened to the Light Dark Douluo, he was completely dazed. Her elucidations were at a different level. While he was still thinking of a way to rebuild Shrek, Her Excellency the Light Dark Douluo was already contemplating the problem between the planes.
Long Yeyue continued, “When we lost the Divine Realm, the direction of our Douluo Star’s plane’s evolution was greatly affected. That’s why the plane’s lord made such choices. However, judging from the circumstances, there may have been a mistake. The pace of human development has exceeded his expectations. The high paced development of soul technology has greatly affected the entire star’s life energy. That’s the reason for the low resources of this star especially on our Douluo Continent. Under such conditions, the resources on Douluo Continent will be depleted in the future. The soul beasts will go extinct and the environment will degrade. If all intelligent life dies off one day, then the Douluo plane will crumble.”
“At present, the plane’s lord has made some adjustments. Although it’s hard to tell the adjustments he made, it’s highly likely that it was made in your generation. Outer space development is trending at the moment. At the same time, I think that the lord of the plane wants to manipulate the ecosystem as well. Or rather, he wants to exploit more life energies for his own use.”
“In Shrek Academy, the Sea God Pavilion Master once made a bold inference fifteen generations ago. The abyssal plane could connect to our Douluo Continent plane because our Douluo plane’s lord wanted it so. He wanted an opportunity to rob the abyssal plane of its planar energy to replenish his own.”
This statement gave Tang Wulin a mind-blowing shock, “What? You’re saying that the abyssal plane is actually at the behest of the lord of our plane?”
Long Yeyue shook her head and said, “It’s just speculation. We don’t know the details either. It’s more probable than the abyssal plane latching onto us and wanting to devour us. After all, from the perspective of the plane’s lord, the abyssal plane is more powerful. On the other hand, from the entire plane’s perspective, our Douluo plane is more powerful than theirs.”
Tang Wulin’s brain went into overdrive as he pondered Long Yeyue’s words. “You’re saying that the abyssal plane’s, what’s his name, Sage King, is more powerful than our plane’s lord, but if we compared both the planes, ours is stronger?”
Long Yeyue nodded. “You can say that. In terms of the universe’s energy, the abyssal plane is more powerful. That’s because when the abyssal plane was separated, it had almost formed its own consciousness. At this level, it’s much more powerful than our Douluo plane. The abyssal plane, after having formed its own intelligence, began devouring other planes to make itself more powerful. That’s how it obtained the strength it has today. Existing in an energy form proved to be the most effective as it was easier to develop itself.”
“However, the process has its flaws too. The main difference is the abyssal plane’s development doesn’t have a physical body like the celestial body of Douluo Star. Why are the abyssal creatures able to convert into energy and return to the abyssal plane after their deaths and be regenerated as new combat strength? It’s because the abyssal plane isn’t a true celestial body. The whole plane is just a large body of energy. Every abyssal clan was born from the will of the abyssal plane’s lord. It divided its energy into countless portions. After these energies became intelligent life forms, it allowed them to develop autonomously.”
“In terms of the life levels, the abyssal plane is stronger. However, because they’re formless, when it reaches its critical point, it can’t be improved further. Simply put, high-level energy planes such as the abyssal plane can easily become a Divine Realm. On the other hand, the physical intelligent planes such as our Douluo Star has to go through an arduous path to become a Divine Realm. That’s the main difference between us.”
“However, our Douluo plane has its own advantages as well. Substantiation is an advantage which isn’t shared by the abyssal plane. A substantiated plane is much more stable than an energy plane. Many disasters in the universe can affect an energy plane but not a physical plane. Although our plane is not as highly ranked as the abyssal plane, we’re far better in terms of security. Although the lord of our plane doesn’t have form and substance much like the abyssal plane, its foundation is firmer. Thus, it’s quite difficult for the abyssal plane to devour us. At the same time, it’s equally difficult for us to devour the abyssal plane.”
“Nevertheless, our plane has a great advantage the abyssal plane doesn’t have. The life forms in the physical plane are autonomous. Although we’re influenced by the plane’s laws, there’s a possibility we can transcend it. That’s why there have been soul masters who cultivated into gods and entered the Divine Realm. However, in the abyssal plane, it’s virtually impossible to break free from the Sage King’s control. Every life form is a part of the Sage King.”
When she said this, Long Yeyue paused. Tang Wulin took the time to ponder what she had said. She then continued, “I’m telling you all this so that you understand the different planes and their meanings and objectives. As the one chosen by the Douluo plane, you’ll surely feel the killing intent of the abyssal plane. You’re the chosen one since you’ve got the potential to destroy the abyssal plane.”
“That’s why you were attacked by the Sage King who didn’t worry about the price he had to pay. Also, that may not be the last of it. The abyssal plane will surely seek to destroy you regardless of the sacrifice.”
Tang Wulin answered, “Since I’ve got the potential to destroy the abyssal plane, won’t they avoid me? Isn’t the issue resolved by breaking off the connection between our planes? I can’t possibly travel between planes to reach them.”
Long Yeyue shook her head. “It’s not so simple. The connection between the two planes can’t be severed easily. Even if the abyssal plane wants to cut the connection on its own accord, our Douluo plane might not be willing. Moreover, our plane’s lord surely has the abyssal plane’s coordinates already. When you’re prepared to destroy the abyssal plane, believe me, the plane’s lord will surely think of a way for you to venture into the abyss.”
“If I can comprehend this, don’t you think the Sage King will get it too? That’s why they won’t spare any effort to have you killed.”
A bitter smile appeared at the edge of Tang Wulin’s lips. When he was at the abyssal passage back then, he was able to borrow the planar power through the Blood Gods Great Array. With the appearance of Gu Yuena back then, they activated the Dragon God Transformation and was able to stop the Sage King from attacking them.
If the Sage King attacked him again in the future, what would he use to fend him off? It was not a question of whether he had confidence or not. The more critical issue was that he had no idea when and where the Sage King would make his move.
Long Yeyue said, “You don’t have to be so despondent. What we discussed just now may have sounded pessimistic. However, since you’re the chosen one, you’ll surely be highly gifted in natural talents. If the plane’s lord has chosen you, he’ll spare no effort in nurturing you to fight against the abyssal plane. Just as both the elders of the Tang Sect and Shrek, the Thousand Hands Douluo Tang San and the Spirit Ice Douluo Huo Yuhao, were most probably chosen by the plane’s lord, similarly you, too, were chosen.”
“Your cultivation will gradually become easier. More importantly, your luck will also improve. You’ll understand things more quickly and may even be under the plane’s lord’s protection. Should the abyssal plane intend to destroy you, the plane’s lord will surely assist you in whatever way he can. So, you don’t have to be overly worried. What you need to do is to grow quickly and reach the state where you can protect yourself as soon as possible.”
“Think about it, why were you able to break through the Spirit Domain? Why were you picked by the Life Seed? It’s because you’ve been chosen by the plane’s lord.”
Upon hearing what Long Yeyue said, Tang Wulin’s heart fluttered. His gaze changed slightly as well. Was he the person chosen by the plane’s lord? Was his improvement related to the plane’s favor?
If this had happened in the past, he would not have felt this way. However, after he had broken through to a seven-ringed Soul Saint’s cultivation base, he began to have such feelings.
The most direct impact he felt was after he planted the Life Seed at the bottom of the Sea God Lake. When his remaining seven Golden Dragon King seals were fortified from the Life Seed’s enhancement, it was as if the Life Seed knew what he needed.+1June 10, 2021 at 6:55 pm #1453078
Inheriting The Atlas Divine Spear!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In a sense, the Life Seed was considered to be a part of the lord of the plane. Moreover, his cultivation base was apparently advancing at a tremendous pace after he broke through to seven rings. Additionally, he had also acquired a piece of Metalwater Harmonizer from his grandteacher.
‘Yes! It seemed like my luck is truly getting better and my cultivation rate is accelerating too. I can even smoothly have a breakthrough in my cultivation of the Body Sect’s Innate Secret Technique. Do all these benefits come from being chosen by the plane?’
“You should be able to figure this out properly. This is also the reason why the Tang Sect chose to make you its Sect Master,” said Long Yeyue.
Tang Wulin spoke, “Your excellency, I—I agree to take on the responsibility.” He had considered for a moment and then decided to speak frankly.
Long Yeyue spoke, “It’s good that you’ve agreed. I’m telling you this not because I’m trying to inform you that the Tang Sect is using you, but I wish to let you know that we intend to do the same. From this day onward, you’re not only the leader of the Tang Sect but also the leader of Shrek Academy’s new generation. We will support you at all costs.”
“Huh?” Tang Wulin’s mind could not react to the situation in that instant as he looked at the old Title Douluo before himself.
Long Yeyue smiled. “A mighty movement is bound to need a mighty leader’s guidance. I’m already old. Could it be that you still count on an elderly woman over two hundred years old to do this? I may be able to bring some victories, but I can’t give hope for Shrek’s future. However, you can!”
Tang Wulin was feeling slightly bewildered. The sudden turn of events he went through at the Tang Sect today was a little too much for him.
“We are going to assist you as you advance. I’m telling you all this for another purpose, and that is so you’ll understand the path that you’re going to embark on next. You must certainly comply with the plane’s own requirements in order for you to perform smoothly. Otherwise, even if you are the plane’s chosen one, you could still possibly end up being abandoned in the end.”
“Yes,” answered Tang Wulin.
“Alright. It’s time to go back. Send Wu Zhangkong and the rest here.”
Although Tang Wulin still felt dizzy when he left the Tang Sect, it did not stop him from avoiding any kind of detection on the outside, and he distanced himself using the identity of a normal person before vanishing from the watchful eyes of his followers. Nevertheless, he was still feeling as if he was in a dreamlike state.
Within a few short hours, he had become the Tang Sect’s Sect Master and the new leader of Shrek Academy. Even though these two great organizations were far from what they had been in their glory days, he was only twenty-one years old!
In history, no one had ever taken both tasks upon themselves. Even the only two men capable of achieving Godhood, as in the Tang Sect’s founding father Tang San and the Spirit Pagoda’s founder, the Holy Ice Douluo Huo Yuhao, were incapable of doing this. On the other hand, he had managed to do so in a day.
How unbelievable was this? Yet, the reality was right before his eyes.
Then, he came to the Sea God Lake’s shelter and found Wu Zhangkong to inform him about the news that the Light Dark Douluo and inner court disciples were still alive.
Wu Zhangkong was just as surprised as he had been. However, after careful consideration, he did not send the over two hundred students with Tang Wulin to the Tang Sect, but he instead went with Tang Wuling alone.
“Elder Long. I don’t think that now is a suitable time for everyone to gather together,” said Wu Zhangkong straightforwardly to Long Yeyue after saluting her with respect.
Long Yeyue asked, “Why?”
Wu Zhangkong spoke, “Your earlier concerns were correct. Even though over two hundred students are willing to do anything for the academy after receiving its kindness, they are still too young and inexperienced. Thus, I think that they should elevate and train themselves one step further so they can become the backbone of the academy in the future. As a result, I think that the training proposed by Tang Wulin is necessary. They will only be considered mature after passing the tests on Demon Island and are qualified to know the secrets here.
Long Yeyue pondered before she spoke, “That makes sense as well. Then, we shall do as you’ve said. It’s good to separate into two sides to share the risk. In case there are any changes, at least there’s still hope.”
While Wu Zhangkong was discussing with Long Yeyue, Tang Wulin was chatting with his senior disciple brother Lan Muzi from the inner court.
Lan Muzi told him how the inner court students survived on that day.
The fellow elders from the Sea God’s Pavillion did all they could to withstand the arrival of the Godkiller-rank fixed soul ammunition so the students could stand a chance of surviving. Just like the outer court disciples, the group of Sea God’s Pavillion elders allowed them to live.
There was no shelter in the inner court, but there was a peculiar semi-planar teleportation array. It was launched just in time to teleport the group of people away. On the other hand, the Light Dark Douluo was in the peripheral area of the explosion, so she relied on her cultivation base to withstand the blast. Wounded, she fled into the distance.
The group sighed heavily when recalling everything that had happened all that time ago.
Long Yeyue and Wu Zhangkong walked out from the room. Her lips made a humming sound as she said something to the Holy Spirit Douluo who was giving directions to two recovery-type soul masters on one side of the great hall.
The Holy Spirit Douluo Yali arrived by her side.
The numerous inner court disciples hastily stood up and stood near her respectfully upon seeing Long Yeyue’s arrival.
Long Yeyue spoke with a deep voice, “I would like to announce that from now on, Shrek Academy shall be rebuilt. Wu Zhangkong shall be acting as the outer court dean and I’ll be acting as the inner court dean. Yali shall act as the Sea God’s Pavilion vice pavilion master. Tang Wulin, Wu Zhangkong, Lan Muzi, Tang Yinmeng and the remaining six people of the Shrek Seven Monsters shall become the elders of Sea God’s Pavilion.”
All at once, the crowd’s expressions became excited upon hearing Long Yeyue’s words. They clenched their fists tightly.
“Yes, Pavilion Master,” said the group in unison.
“No.” Long Yeyue waved her hand. “I’m still the vice pavilion master.
Henceforth, the position of the Sea God’s Pavilion Master shall be passed down to the leader of the Shrek Seven Monsters, Tang Wulin.”
Other than Tang Wulin, who was already aware of this, the rest were greatly startled. Even Wu Zhangkong had a shocked look in his eyes.
Tang Wulin as the Sea God’s Pavilion Master?
He was only twenty-one years old! Even if this was decided so the future would be more hopeful, it seemed like either Wu Zhangkong or Lan Muzi were more suitable than he judging by their resources and plethora of abilities.
At once, the group of inner court disciples was looking at Tang Wulin slightly differently. They were shocked, as well as rather confused. Even if Tang Wulin was the leader of the current generation’s Shrek Seven Monsters, he was still too young!
Nevertheless, Long Yeyue was so domineering, who had the audacity to refute her words?
Yali slowly walked to the front of Tang Wulin. There was a flash of light in her hand as she conjured a spear, shimmering with incandescent color. It was the Atlas Divine Spear left behind by the Atlas Douluo Yun Ming before the fusion of his essence, energy, spirit into his martial soul caused him to expire.
“Wulin, this was left behind by Yun Ming. You also wield a spear, so I’m giving it to you. I hope that you can follow his example of martyrdom so that Shrek can regain its glory once again.”
Immediately, Tang Wulin felt a mix of emotions in his heart upon seeing the spear in the Holy Spirit Douluo’s hand.
The Atlas Divine Spear emitted incandescent radiance all over while its body looked transparent. It was unlike the Golden Dragon Spear with sharp blades on both ends, as it had only one spearhead. However, the spearhead was especially long, almost one-third of the Atlas Divine Spear’s total length. There was a pulsating glow on the sharp spearhead. The word ‘Atlas’ was carved crudely on the s---t that connected the spearhead.
With his spiritual power perception, Tang Wulin could sense a gush of boundless and terrifying spear’s consciousness. No, more accurately, it should be called the conception of the spear’s essence.
Tang Wulin had just learned the fundamentals of his spear techniques the last time he saw the Atlas Divine Spear. He did not have profound feelings for it, but at this very moment, he had a completely different sensation despite just looking at the divine spear.
“Your excellency…” Tang Wulin’s voice sounded as if he was trembling.+1June 10, 2021 at 6:56 pm #1453080
Boundless Universe Crystal
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
A warm smile appeared on Yali’s face. Even though her eyes had lost their prior light, at this very moment, her smile remained as gentle as before.
“You can address me as Grandteacher. Inheriting his Atlas Divine Spear signifies that I’m taking you as my disciple on his behalf. The spear contains his entire legacy.” Yali lifted the Atlas Divine Spear and presented it before Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin gripped the spear s---t as a multitude of feelings surged in his heart. He knelt on the floor and lifted the Atlas Divine Spear in his hands high up into the air.
“I, Tang Wulin, am pleased to formally acknowledge you as grandteacher.” As he spoke, he lifted the Atlas Divine Spear and gave three kowtows to Yali.
Yali’s eyes had long since run out of tears and there was only gratitude left.
“I’ll certainly do my best to see the arrival of that day. I believe that you’ll certainly show me the brilliance that I saw in him back in the beginning at the very moment Shrek is rebuilt.”
“The most painful moment in Yun Min’s lifetime was when the academy was destroyed, but I have never thought that he failed as the Sea God’s Pavilion Master. I’ll always be proud of him. Don’t disappoint the Atlas Spear. I hope that it will help you to become that Atlas jade pillar that holds up the heavens and supports Shrek once again.”
“Yes, grandteacher. I’ll certainly do my best not to disappoint the teacher’s Atlas Divine Spear!”
Yun Ming was Na’er’s teacher once. From this moment onward, he was Tang Wulin’s teacher too.
Tang Wulin stood up once again with his hands holding the Atlas Divine Spear. Lan Muzi walked in front of him with a smile on his face. He took the initiative to speak, “Pleased to meet you, Pavilion Master.”
It was as though the rest of the inner court disciples were being awakened from a dream. They saluted Tang Wulin respectfully in unison. “Pleased to meet you, Pavilion Master.”
Yes, from the moment Tang Wulin received the spear, he was already the new generation’s Sea God’s Pavilion Master of Shrek Academy. He was the representative of Shrek’s true leader.
Long Yeyue smiled and nodded at Tang Wulin. “From this day onward, you’re the rightful person. I have something for you as well.”
As she was speaking, she arrived before Tang Wulin and stretched out her hands to pass him something.
It was a translucent, diamond-shaped crystal. It was blue in color and crystal clear as if there were waves of water rippling inside.
“What’s this…?” Tang Wulin’s eyes were almost instantly attracted to the diamond-shaped crystal. It felt as if there was a great pull coming from inside of it. His vision had just managed to focus when he felt that his spiritual power, which had been able to sense the entire world, was attracted by the crystal and had completely fused into it in a split second.
Everything in the surroundings became quiet. To his astonishment, Tang Wulin found himself inside a sky-blue world.
The sky-blue hue color was boundless. A fish appeared to be a translucent blue color swam past his body. It was as if the entire world was filled with endless life energy.
The sensation was simply amazing. His mind felt completely at ease, as his entire person basked in the thick life source.
The entire process seemed to last for a very long time, but it also felt like it appeared for only a split second. When Tang Wulin returned to the real world once again in a daze, he remained transfixed by the crystal shimmering with otherworldly light in the Light Dark Douluo Long Yeyue’s hand.
Tang Wulin raised his head to look at the others. It was as if everybody else had the same feeling as he. Everyone was feeling amazed by the magnificence of this diamond-shaped crystal.
“It’s called the Boundless Universe. It has always been the rare treasure that dominated Sea God’s Pavilion and the academy. The history of its existence goes way back to twenty thousand years ago. It came from the first Sect Master of the Tang Sect, the first leader of the first generation of the Shrek Seven Monsters of Shrek Academy, the Thousand Hands Douluo Tang San.
“There’s no way for us to look back on how Tang San acquired the Boundless Universe so many ages ago. We can only tell that the Boundless Universe played a decisive role in his path to Godhood. In our academy, only Limit Douluo-ranked powerhouses with adequate experience are qualified to experience its mysteries. Through it, one can seek the first step of the path that leads to the Divine Realm.”
“The Boundless Universe crystal is normally housed in the Sea God’s Pavilion. On the day of the catastrophe, the Pavilion Master passed it to me, so that I could act according to the circumstances. Judging by age, I was supposed to be the final person that guarded Shrek at the time. However, he told me that he was duty-bound as the Pavilion Master. Thus, he allowed me, the old woman, to live. Today, I’ll be passing the Boundless Universe crystal to you on his behalf. I hope that you will look to the example he set, guarding every living thing in Shrek and protect the glory of Shrek over thousands of years just like every past Sea God’s Pavilion Master.”
“Yes!” With solemn eyes, Tang Wulin received the Boundless Universe crystal with the utmost respect.
The Boundless Universe crystal felt icy cold, but it had a soft texture. It felt extremely peculiar in his hands, as if it was not solid but more like a piece of jelly.
Long Yeyue spoke in a deep voice, “Next, we shall resume the original plan. Zhangkong, do send over the first batch of students to the Demon Island personally. We’ve already fixed the candidate name list earlier. Wulin, don’t go anywhere for the next three months. Stay and cultivate in the Tang Sect and head to Star Luo and Dou Spirit three months later.
“Yes!” Tang Wulin nodded in agreement.
Long Yeyue’s expression suddenly dimmed. She spoke in somber tones, “Wulin, you’re already the Sea God’s Pavilion Master of Shrek Academy right now. You are the true leader of the academy and also the current Sect Master of the Tang Sect’s, so you must pay more attention to your identity. No matter where you are, you are representing the Tang Sect and Shrek Academy. You must never assume the attitude in the past anymore when you’re facing me, Zang Xin or Cao Dezhi. The Tang Sect and Shrek Academy need your aura as a leader, and not the humility of a student or a Tang Sect disciple.”
Tang Wulin was stunned for a moment. He nodded with a bitter smile. Frankly, these two identities came so suddenly and unexpectedly for him that he was still not quite accustomed to them.
Long Yeyue’s serious gaze vanished. “Alright, then we shall resume getting back to our first plan. The specific affairs will still be decided upon by the Sea God’s Pavilion committee.”
Other than Tang Wulin, the group of Shrek Academy members bowed to Long Yeyue in unison.
Tang Wulin was assigned to a single room. His new status was completely different, so, naturally, his room was the best available. His chambers of over two hundred square meters had its own study, bathroom, cultivation room, and even a special forging room. Every need of his was fulfilled.
Tang Wulin returned to the room and headed straight for the meditation room. By the time he sat cross-legged, he was still feeling as if he was in a dream world.
Was it true that he had already become the leader of both the Tang Sect and Shrek Academy? He could even say he was the first person in history ever to be assigned such an identity! Even the two greatest legends of the Tang Sect, the Thousand Hands Douluo Tang San and the Holy Ice Douluo Huo Yuhao, had never achieved such a feat before.
He was only just past twenty years old after all. It was utterly impossible for him to not feel proud of himself. The sense of pride aside, he had an even more intense sense of responsibility.
Originally, he had assumed that the Light Dark Douluo Long Yeyue still being alive would slightly lighten the burden placed on his shoulders. There was also Teacher Wu. They were capable of bearing the heavy task of rebuilding Shrek Academy, yet it seemed like the heaviest load remained his own. This showed that Elder Long and Teacher Wu valued him very highly, but at the same time it also signified that he was going to bear an even greater burden.
However, he was in a vastly different mood compared to before. At least, he did not feel lonely anymore. Shrek Academy had not been completely destroyed, and its foundations remained within so many of the inner and outer courts’ outstanding students.
In the foreseeable future, they would certainly restore Shrek’s culture and heritage to what it had been when they were all fully developed
At this point, Tang Wulin could not help feeling rather excited. He was even just about ready to let out a great roar into the sky.
Ever since he headed to the Blood God Army back then, he had always been in an extremely depressed and even oppressed mood. How could he not feel depressed when the academy was destroyed and he lost his family? How could those incidents not leave him feeling agonized?
Now, he could finally see a gleam of hope. At least, everything was developing in a good direction. Everything was still possible with the Tang Sect’s culture and heritage, and also the seed left behind by Shrek.
He had even wished that he could achieve more. The act of rebuilding Shrek was definitely not his final goal. After all, the continent remained in the federal government’s control. In the future, he would need to not only rebuild Shrek if it wished to stand aloof once again, but also acquire the entire Federation’s support.
Tang Wulin and his companions would need to confront countless enemies in the future. The Holy Spirit Cult occupied the foremost position, followed by the great forces that supported Hawk Faction, and there was also the Spirit Pagoda that could possibly be the hardest to manage for the threat of their presence was even bigger than the Holy Spirit Cult.+1June 10, 2021 at 6:57 pm #1453081
Where Are You? Wait For Me.
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
There were countless dark forces hiding in dark other than that and also the great troublemaker, federation’s military.
Thus, Amorous Douluo and the rest thought of joining forces with the two great empires of Dou Spirit and Star Luo to stop this war.
A terrifying image involuntarily emerged on his mind. It was the scene when he was confronted by the abyssal Sage King back then.
He could clearly sense the abyssal Sage King’s boundless killing intent towards him. At present, they had defeated the abyssal tide and the seal had been strengthened once again, but was this effort truly capable of stopping the abyssal plane’s next attempt?
Tang Wulin did not know that and he could even tell that no one could truly give an accurate answer to it. However, if the abyssal plane was willing to do everything no matter the cost, perhaps the abyssal plane could possibly launch the next abyssal tide at any time.
Thus, the abyssal plane was another formidable enemy that he would need to confront. As the candidate chosen by the plane, he would have to be the first to bear the immense stress.
In fact, the abyssal plane could possibly be the greatest enemy that he had to confront. Hence, the most important matter for him now was to strengthen himself.
For the past three months, Tang Wulin could clearly sense the swift speed at which his cultivation base was elevating. During the three months long closed-door cultivation, he spent the first month doing the most important task of tidying up the gains he acquired from cultivating in Blood God Army, especially in fusing the understanding he had from the battle with abyssal Sage King into his abilities through the comprehension of his spiritual power. Then, he cultivated at full pace.
He had not luckily defeated Wu Zhangkong in the battle. This was the result of him settling down with his gains while expressing his true abilities at the same time. He had also relied on the amplification provided by Golden Dragon Spear and Golden Dragon King Bloodline. Even though he only had a seven-ringed cultivation base, his overall fighting capacity at present was already no inferior to an ordinary Title Douluo-rank powerhouse.
Of course, this was when both parties were not using their battle armors. In reality, Tang Wulin was utterly incapable of using his battle armor right now. His three-word battle armor’s metal prototype was already completed but he had yet to carry out the engravement of the core circuit.
His soul power cultivation base was now already at rank-73. He had elevated himself by two ranks within the short period of three months. It was something simply unbelievable for someone with seven-ringed cultivation base. Moreover, Tang Wulin could sense that his cultivation speed was still increasing. Judging by the current situation, it would take him one year at most before he had the confidence to achieve the eight-ringed Soul Douluo rank and it would take three years at most for him to become a Title Douluo.
He was but twenty-four years old by then. A twenty-four-year-old Title Douluo was seen very rarely even in the history of Shrek Academy.
Tang Wulin had already decided that he would simultaneously attempt to break the Golden Dragon King’s twelfth layer seal when he was breaking through to Soul Douluo realm. According to the previous course, he was going to acquire his sixth golden soul ring. The Golden Dragon Blast brought forth by his fifth golden soul ring had elevated almost all his abilities. Thus, the ability brought by the sixth soul ring could only be more terrifying.
On the other hand, his body’s strength and endurance after becoming a Title Douluo would allow him to begin considering the making of four-word battle armor. Tang Wulin had the confidence that he would be able to confront any powerhouse in today’s world after he became a four-word battle armor master.
He followed very clear planning during his cultivation process. Ever since he successfully became a Soul Sage, he could sense that he had already entered a different level and he could truly be considered a powerhouse from that moment onwards.
A faint smile emerged on Tang Wulin’s face. He sat cross-legged in preparation to begin cultivating. The soul communicator wrapped around his wrist rang all of a sudden.
Tang Wulin raised his hand and took a glance. His gaze changed and he appeared a little excited.
He picked up the soul communicator and heard a familiar voice echoing from the other end of the communication.
“Where are you? Alright, wait for me.” Tang Wulin had only spoken these brief words before he quickly got up and scurried out of the room. Yes, ‘scurried’ was the best way to describe the way he moved.
Tang Sect headquarter had almost spread over the entire Heaven Dou City’s underground world. As a result, exits were accessible in all directions. A few minutes later, Tang Wulin appeared on the streets of Heaven Dou City.
Due to his excitement, he had yet to disguise his appearance. His face was covered by a face mask and a cap covered his head. He concealed his appearance as much as possible.
He squinted his eyes and spread out his spiritual power imperceptibly towards the surroundings. At his spiritual power level, anyone could not possibly detect his spiritual power unless it was another Spirit Domain-rank powerhouse. Moreover, he had no time to be concerned about that in front of the excitement he was feeling right now. After all, it was not a big problem.
“Hmm?” A middle-aged man dressed in common attire was about to walk into the biggest auction in the Heaven Dou City when he stopped.
There was nothing extraordinary about the middle-aged man, but there was one thing he had that was similar to Tang Wulin. He too had a face mask on his face but there was no cap on his head.
Another person followed him by his side. If Tang Wulin were to see her at this moment, he would certainly become even more excited. His excitement would be beyond comparison.
She was wearing a face mask too that covered her facial features. However, she had a head full of gorgeous silver hair and a pair of enticing purple eyes.
“Pretty impressive spiritual power.” The middle-aged man muttered to himself. “Na’er, can you feel that?” he asked the woman by his side.
The silver-haired purple-eyed Na’er shook her head but did not speak.
The middle-aged man squinted his eyes. “Your spiritual power cultivation is almost at the edge of Spirit Domain realm. There’s no need to rush it. You’ll feel it naturally once you’ve made a breakthrough to the limit.
“Pagoda master, so you’re saying that there was a powerhouse with Spirit Domain realm who unleashed his spiritual power just now?” Gu Yuena’s voice sounded as pleasant as before but it did not contain any spiritual fluctuation at all.
“Hmm, it seems like the person is looking for something and has no intention to fight. Let’s enter. Heaven Dou City is supposed to be a place where talented people still stay in secretion. Had we not been trying to get that item for you today, I would have liked to a look at the mighty individual there.” He led the way and walked towards the inside of the auction upon saying that.
Gu Yuena stopped walking. She turned around and looked toward the sky behind her with a complicated expression that flashed past her eyes for a moment. She clenched her fists subconsciously. The impulsiveness that crossed her eyes vanished as soon as it appeared.
Found it! Tang Wulin’s spiritual power retracted abruptly. He walked ahead on the street in a speed that appeared slow but was still swift. After a few rounds of detours, he found a familiar silhouette.
Tang Wulin’s smile grew wider during that very moment when he saw the person. He walked towards him in great strides.
On the other hand, the person seemed to have felt his presence as well. The person suddenly turned around with his gaze fixated on Tang Wulin’s body.
This person was slightly different than Tang Wulin. He was not wearing a face mask. He had an ordinary face with a tall figure and his head full of golden hair shimmering with golden light under the sunlight.
His lips cracked into a cunning yet enticing smile as he walked towards Tang Wulin.
Soon, both of them were standing facing one another. Tang Wulin suddenly stretched out his hand and slapped toward the person’s chest. The golden-haired male similarly stretched out his hand. Their right hands met each other in the air and clapped aloud. Then, they tightly grabbed one another’s hand.
Tang Wulin strenuously pulled once. There was no doubt that the disparity between Tang Wulin’s strength and the golden-haired man’s was still very huge. Tang Wulin bumped against the person’s chest with his shoulder. However, in the next moment, they laughed aloud in unison.
“Welcome back!” Tang Wulin shook his hand.
“Aren’t we acting a little too passionate? Fortunately, my girl Xiaoyan is not here,” the golden-haired man said while chuckling.0June 10, 2021 at 6:58 pm #1453082
The Reunion of Brothers
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Tang Wulin spoke, “Oh right, where’s Xiaoyan? Why isn’t she here with you? I haven’t had the time to ask all of you.”
The golden-haired man was without a doubt Yue Zhengyu in disguise. He smiled. “She has her own path to take. She didn’t even tell me where she was going when she left, but I can roughly make a guess. Don’t worry, I’ve already contacted her. She will be arriving in another day or two. Big brother, even though you’re the champion in Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge, all of us have advanced our abilities too. Don’t you be defeated by us!”
Tang Wulin rolled his eyes at him. “Both of you should try and fight me in pair.”
Yue Zhengyu’s eyes glowed. “You said that. Don’t cry when you get defeated.”
Tang Wulin looked at him with astonishment. “It seems like you’re full of confidence! I suppose you’ve made a breakthrough to seven rings.”
Yue Zhengyu immediately showed a proud expression. “Is it that impressive? It’s nothing much.”
Tang Wulin said, “let’s go. This is not the place for a discussion.” Upon saying that, he released his grasp on Yue Zhengyu’s hand as they walked ahead.
Yue Zhengyu occasionally looked at the scenery on both sides of the street. “It feels really good to be back. What a waste that this is not Shrek City anymore.” His expression dimmed a little as he was speaking the final sentence. Tang Wulin was not the only person with profound emotions towards Shrek Academy. In reality, they had cultivated in Shrek Academy for three more years than Tang Wulin back then, so they were feeling even more reluctant than Tang Wulin to part with the academy.
Otherwise, he would not have been cultivating with such efforts during this period of time.
“Oh, I’m already a colonel. I’ve been promoted out of my capability in the Southern Army Corps. Even that old-fashioned grandfather of mine didn’t comment on that. How about you?” Yue Zhengyu used his shoulder to nudge Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin smiled. “You’re rather boastful huh! You must have been oppressed too much in the Southern Army Corps.”
Yue Zhengyu shrugged. “I spend every day cultivating, doing nothing but else. Ever since Xiaoyan left, I didn’t even have someone to talk to. How about Xie Xie and Yuanen? When are they coming back? There’s also Xinglan and Lizhi. Aren’t they here yet? I am not the first person, right?”
Tang Wulin said, “what’s wrong with becoming the first person to arrive? This shows that you’re motivated and positive. They should be arriving within the next few days too.”
Yue Zhengyu was quiet all of a sudden. He exhaled a long breath after a few seconds had passed. “It feels really good to reunite with everyone.”
Tang Wulin did not utter a word but he used his shoulder to nudge Yue Zhengyu. Yes! It truly felt too good to reunite with his companions!
Even though he was already leading the Blood Dragon Unit by himself and had the support of Shrek Academy and Tang Sect now, no one could measure up to these companions that had always been with him for so many years! They were the true Shrek Seven Monsters of today.
“Oh right, Zhengyu. Let me tell you some good news. You’re already one of the Sea God Pavilion’s elders now. You can now join the Sea God Pavilion’s meetings.”
Yue Zhengyu was stunned for a moment but his expression did not reveal any happiness. On the contrary, he bitterly smiled. “Sea God Pavilion’s Elder? Are we granting these titles to ourselves? Yes! There’s no one other than us.”
In order to give everyone a big surprise, Tang Wulin had not informed his companions about the news of so many people still being alive in Tang Sect during their conversation in soul communicator.
Yue Zhengyu felt like he sounded a little too serious. He chuckled in turn. “So, as the leader of the current generation’s Shrek Seven Monsters, are you supposed to be Sea God Pavilion’s Master then?”
Tang Wulin nodded. “That’s right!”
Yue Zhengyu smiled. “Very well then, we shall join hands as brothers to raise the Sea God Pavilion. By raising Shrek, we can certainly rebuild the academy, right?”
“That’s for sure,” Tang Wulin said forcefully.
Yue Zhengyu lowered his voice and said, “big brother, are you going to grant me the position of vice pavilion master? Since everyone is not back yet, you can grant the other position to Yuanen or Xinglan. There are usually two positions available for vice pavilion master, right?”
Tang Wulin looked at him with a sly smile. He said, “We shall discuss further during the Sea God Pavilion meeting. You should know that the Sea God Pavilion has always given priority to fairness and justice. We shall agree on the important affairs as a team.”
Yue Zhengyu shrugged. “Can’t you just pull some strings? It’s only a few of us anyway. Oh right, there’s also her excellency Holy Spirit Douluo. Could it be that the grand old woman is reluctant to become the Pavilion Master? Has she not yet recovered from the pain of losing someone?”
Tang Wulin heaved a sigh. “It’s not that easy to recover. Her heart has already died. If not because of her concern for Shrek, I’m afraid that…”
Yue Zhengyu’s expression turned dimmer too. “Frankly, the task of rebuilding Shrek is truly very difficult. Before I departed my grandfather talked to me regarding some affairs related to the political situation at the present. He is not optimistic about us at all.”
Tang Wulin was suddenly enlightened. “I suppose the Southern Army Corps belongs to the Hawk Faction, am I correct?”
Yue Zhengyu nodded. “Southern Army Corps is relatively special because they’re located further away from the rest of the army corps. Moreover, it is located on a richly-endowed land. Generally, the army corps don’t partake in political wars. However, my predecessor Yue Clan was once the lineage of the Martial Soul Hall’s Hall Master. In our clan precepts, there is enmity between us and the Star Luo Empire. Thus, the Southern Army Corps will certainly offer support if we are resorting to arms with it.”
Tang Wulin nodded. “How about our efforts to rebuild Shrek then? Will the Southern Army Corps support us?”
Yue Zhengyu bitterly smiled. “That’s very difficult! Even though the truth hits you like bricks, I’ll still have to speak it. Before I departed my grandfather told me that both he and the Southern Army Corps would never support our efforts to rebuild Shrek. This is because it is possible that this will immensely affect our clan.”
Even though Tang Wulin had already figured that this would happen, he still felt rather disappointed in his heart.
“However, that’s not for sure. My grandfather said that the Southern Army Corps wouldn’t make things difficult for us when we’re rebuilding Shrek. There are also two more possible situations in which he will give consideration to providing us with a certain amount of support. The first scenario is that we are capable of revealing our ability to resist the great forces during the process of rebuilding the academy. Under such circumstances, he’ll take consider providing support to a certain level. The other scenario is if I’m capable of becoming a four-word battle armor master. If that happens, then I’ll become the successor to the next Southern Army Corp’s regimental commander. The army will certainly lean towards me to a certain level on behalf of respect. However, it’s apparent that these two scenarios are not so easy to accomplish.”
Tang Wulin softly nodded upon listening to Yue Zhengyu’s words. It was true that this was no easy task.
Other than certain people gifted with special physical qualities, a soul master would generally have to cultivate to the Hyper Douluo-rank at the minimum in order to become a four-word battle armor master. However, it was inadequate for one to just become a Hyper Douluo on most occasions. This was because in order to become a four-word battle armor master one would need a Divine Craftsman’s Heavenly Refinement.
Hyper Douluos did not come in large numbers but they were not considered too few as well. On the other hand, every Heavenly Refinement was very exhausting for even the Divine Craftsman Zhen Hua. He would need to rest for a very long period of time after completing one set of four-word battle armor. Thus, it was already very rare for him to take on such a Heavenly Refinement mission.
“We’ll somehow find a way. You still have me.” Tang Wulin patted Yue Zhengyu’s shoulder.
Yue Zhengyu glanced at him with astonishment because he discovered that Tang Wulin’s expression did not seem to have a changed despite receiving such bad news. His eyes remained glimmering with spirit as if he was filled with confidence.
“Big brother, you seem to have grown even more confident after becoming the champion of Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge this time! I must certainly praise you for that.”
Tang Wulin smiled. “Confidence is derived from one’s capability. This way…” He pulled Yue Zhengyu while speaking and entered an alley by the side.
After using his spiritual power to sense that there was no spy in the surroundings, he pulled Yue Zhengyu into a courtyard.
Yue Zhengyu followed Tang Wulin as they entered Tang Sect’s underground world and he was astonished from the sight.
“This, this is…”
The extensive underground world startled Yue Zhengyu so much that he was left speechless. He watched the numerous workers bustling about and the mechas produced in the assembly line. Yue Zhengyu could not help swallowing a gulp of saliva.
“This belongs to the Tang Sect?” asked Yue Zhengyu in astonishment.
Tang Wulin nodded. “And us too.”
Tang Wulin brought him outside a door. The door opened by itself without waiting for then to ring the bell.
Lan Muzi had just walked out from the inside coincidentally. He smiled upon seeing Tang Wulin. He bowed and called out, “Pavilion Master.”
“Senior brother disciple Lan, there’s no need to be overly courteous.” Tang Wulin nodded toward him with a smile. He was now already capable of conducting himself with dignity after Long Yeyue’s reminder.
Soon, Lan Muzi saw Yue Zhengyu by Tang Wulin’s side who was staring in bewilderment with his mouth agape.
“Junior brother disciple Zhengyu, it’s been too long.”
Yue Zhengyu was already stuttering by now. “Senior…senior brother disciple Lan. You…you’re still alive. You…”+1June 10, 2021 at 7:00 pm #1453083
Are You Surprised?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Tang Wulin smiled and said, “Hey you… are you surprised?”
Yue Zhengyu had already walked forward in quick strides to size Lan Muzi up and down at close range. He was afraid that he had mistaken him for someone else.
“You’re really not dead yet? Are you certain that you’re not a ghost?” said Yue Zhengyu gaping and speechless.
Lan Muzi was at a loss as to whether he should laugh or cry. He said, “Do you really want me to be a ghost so badly? I’m still alive and well. Don’t worry, alright?”
Tang Wulin could not watch anymore. He apologized to Lan Muzi before he pulled Yue Zhengyu along as they entered the room.
Inside, Long Yeyue and Wu Zhangkong were discussing the list of the first batch of students about to head to the Demon Island. Wu Zhangkong took the lead to stand up as he watched Tang Wulin enter the room, followed by Long Yeyue soon after. They bowed slightly and called out to Tang Wulin in unison, “Pavilion Master.”
Yue Zhengyu had not paid too much attention when Lan Muzi addressed Tang Wulin as ‘Pavilion Master’ earlier. Now, however, he was completely stunned when he saw with his own eyes that Wu Zhangkong and Long Yeyue addressed Tang Wulin as such.
“Elder Long, Teacher Wu!” Yue Zhengyu was even more overwhelmed than Tang Wulin when he first met Wu Zhangkong. Even though he could tell what was coming when he met Lan Muzi earlier, he found that he could not control his emotions when he actually met Wu Zhangkong face-to-face.
He had not followed Wu Zhangkong as a student like Tang Wulin, Xie Xie and the rest had done, but it had been quite a few years since he studied under Wu Zhangkong. How could he control his emotions when he was reunited with Teacher Wu, a man he thought long since dead?
Tears poured down almost instantaneously. He dashed his way to the front of Wu Zhangkong in one big stride and hugged him as he bawled aloud.
Wu Zhangkong’s usually icy cold face cracked into a smile once again. It was a reunion after a catastrophe. Even though he had Tang Wulin as precedent, he had just met Yue Zhengyu after so long! His lips were smiling, but his eyes had already reddened. He was smiling with tears in his eyes.
You don’t know what you have until it’s gone.
Long Yeyue nodded at Tang Wulin then she looked at Yue Zhengyu with a satisfied expression on her face.
She was the Light Dark Douluo. Judging by her cultivation base, even the Atlas Douluo Yun Ming may not necessarily have been a worthy opponent for her. She had also mastered the control over the power of light, so she could naturally sense the almost tangible light element fluctuation emitting from Yue Zhengyu’s body. It felt as if his entire person was formed from the light element. A person with the Holy Angel martial soul could become a Soul Sage upon attaining seven rings. The further he elevated, the greater the change to his abilities.
This was also the reason why Yue Zhengyu was so full of confidence. He had not only broken through to Soul Sage, but he had also completed the Holy Angel Clan’s harrowing second Holy Baptism. This was very rarely seen in the history of the Holy Angel Clan, so how could he not feel excited?
After a very long while and with great effort, Yue Zhengyu could finally control his emotions. When he raised his head to look toward Tang Wulin once again, his expression had already changed.
He spoke ferociously, “You knew this from before. Why didn’t you tell me?”
Tang Wulin shrugged. “If I were to tell you earlier, would I still get to see you cry?”
Yue Zhengyu looked at him then looked at Wu Zhangkong once again. He soon found that he could not keep himself from smiling through the tears. “If crying could resurrect Teacher Wu, I’m willing to cry even a hundred times.”
Even Tang Wulin’s eyes reddened slightly upon listening to these words. Yes! If he could bring Teacher Wu back to life just by crying, he was willing to cry a hundred times too.
Tang Wulin explained to Yue Zhengyu what the current situation was at the academy. When Yue Zhengyu learned that Wu Siduo, his other classmates and many of the inner court senior disciples were still alive, he was so excited that he simply could not contain himself.
“Oh right, Teacher Wu and Elder Long. Yue Zhengyu told me that he wished to…” Tang Wulin was halfway through his sentence when Yue Zhengyu realized what he was about to say. He scurried over to his side and covered his mouth.
“No, don’t say it! Big brother, if you utter another word about that, I shall renounce our friendship!” said Yue Zhengyu ferociously.
Tang Wulin did not tell them about Yue Zhengyu’s wish to become Vice-Pavilion Master, but he could not help chuckling. “Coincidentally, I lack a sparring partner these days. You’re back now and I can tell that you’re very keen on continuing your elevation. Why don’t we spar and also use it as an opportunity for Elder Long to guide us?”
Yue Zhengyu looked at Tang Wulin anxiously and spoke, “I thought we agreed to spar two-against-one when Xiaoyan is back?” Even though he was feeling very confident, he had also witnessed with his own eyes when Tang Wulin became the champion of the Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge. He was not confident enough to the extent of assuming he could defeat Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin turned toward Long Yeyue and said, “Yue Zhengyu had a request earlier…”
He found his mouth covered once again. Furious, Yue Zhengyu spoke through clenched teeth, “Alright! A spar it is then. I’ll agree to that!”
Long Yeyue nodded and said, “That’s fine.”
She had already learned from Wu Zhangkong about how Tang Wulin defeated his former teacher earlier on the premise that both of them would not use their battle armor. Thus, she spoke, “Zhengyu is allowed to use his two-word battle armor, but Wulin isn’t allowed to use his own armor.”
Yue Zhengyu did not seem to be pleased by her words. He explained with a bitter expression, “Elder Long, my two-word battle armor has just been forged into the prototype of my three-word battle armor. I have been cultivating since then and have yet to find the time to make it into three-word armor. I can’t use it at the moment.”
Before the group of seven parted ways, Tang Wulin helped them to complete the foundation forging of their three-word battle armor. However, since then, everyone had been busy cultivating. The making of three-word battle armor was no easy task, so they would not attempt to complete it before they were certain of success. Now that Tang Wulin’s soul-forging skill had already elevated, he had informed them individual via soul communicator that they should not rush into making three-word battle armor. He would help them to improve their forged metals before they continued the process. As a result, the main mission for the Shrek Seven Monsters upon their return this time was to complete the forging and making of their three-word battle armors. They were all already at a seven-ringed cultivation base which was enough to withstand three-word armor. After that, all of them would have an incredibly vast increase in their own abilities.
Long Yeyue spoke, “I hope that you are pleased with depending on yourself then.”
The Tang Sect’s underground gymnasium was of a much higher standard compared to the shelter. The massive gymnasium was over five hundred meters in diameter which was even enough to hold mecha sparring matches. It was as good as any ordinary coliseum. Moreover, every protective implement was made to withstand battles between Title Douluos and greater, so three-word battle armor masters had no way of doing any real damage here.
Tang Wulin’s lips cracked into a faint smile. He turned to Yue Zhengyu with a friendly look in his eyes.
As soon as Yue Zhengyu stepped into the gymnasium, his whole aura changed.
He seemed to be a little fearful earlier, but when he arrived at this place, his gaze and his disposition seemed to have undergone a transformation that could overturn Heaven and Earth. Light shimmered in his eyes as if he was filled with the belief that he was undefeated. There was a soft, pulsating glow around him. Tang Wulin could clearly sense that there was a light element fluctuating around Yue Zhengyu’s body so intense that it turned practically turned his body into a soul light bulb, its light faintly flashing.
Both of them stood gazing at one another, one hundred meters apart. Long Yeyue, Wu Zhangkong and the numerous inner court disciples had all gathered outside to watch the battle.
After Tang Wulin had suddenly become the Sea God’s Pavilion Master of Shrek Academy, there were still quite a few people who were feeling rather rebellious amongst the inner court disciples, especially those who had a good relationship with Lan Muzi.
In many people’s opinion, Lan Muzi, who was already of Title Douluo-rank now, was even more qualified for this position than Tang Wulin. In fact, Lan Muzi’s qualifications were no less than Wu Zhangkong’s in the slightest. Judging by his cultivation base, he could even surpass Wu Zhangkong. He deserved to be the number one candidate.
Nevertheless, the Holy Spirit Douluo and the Light Dark Douluo chose the leader of the current generation’s Shrek Seven Monsters, Tang Wulin, who was only twenty-one years old, without any reservations.+1June 10, 2021 at 7:02 pm #1453084
Holy Angel Yue Zhengyu
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Lan Muzi was just over thirty years old this year and had reached his peak condition.
Why had the academy not chosen him? Why did it have to be Tang Wulin?
Even for Lan Muzi, it was impossible for that thought not to have crossed his mind. He was well aware of how immensely stressful it would be to become the new generation’s Sea God’s, Pavilion Master. Nevertheless, after being the inner court’s most senior disciple for so many years, he could not help but think about this. He would willingly accept this responsibility as well.
Thus, when Elder Long gathered everyone to watch the battle, they all came without the slightest hesitation. Not even one person was left out. Even the Holy Spirit Douluo was there. She was attending because she was worried that someone might get injured in the process. On the other hand, with her presence, injuries were no longer an issue. The fighter’s life could be saved as long as they were still breathing.
Elder Long’s voice echoed through the entire area, “Get ready. There are no rules in this battle. Fight until you can no longer continue.”
Tang Wulin glanced in Elder Long’s direction. He understood that the reason Elder Long gathered everyone here was to allow him to establish his authority. The battle would not be considered an ordinary match.
Soon after Long Yeyue’s announcement, Yue Zhengyu’s body underwent a transformation at once. Seven soul rings burst from underneath his feet like an explosion. It was even more surprising that all seven of his soul rings were gold in color.
Yes, they were all golden!
Tang Wulin could tell that he was using the camouflage trick learned on the Demon Island so that the others could not tell the color of his soul rings.
When his soul rings appeared, there was also a golden radiance that erupted like a solar flare.
In a split second, Yue Zhengyu had turned a dazzling golden color. The incomparably thick light element made his entire form appear like a shining star.
Such a powerful light element!
The numerous inner court disciples were stunned upon witnessing this.
Wu Siduo and the rest had also been asked to attend as well. They were also inner court disciples and they would be cultivating here in preparation for their journey to the Demon Island.
They could not keep their expressions from changing ever so slightly upon sensing the thick light element blooming from Yue Zhengyu’s body.
Even though he appeared to be of only a seven-ringed cultivation base, he was capable of unleashing such a powerful energy fluctuation without using his battle armor. How could a Soul Sage-ranked soul master achieve that?
Yue Zhengyu was basking in a sea of light as he said to Tang Wulin, “Big brother, you’re going to need to be careful. I’m different from what I was before.”
Yue Zhengyu moved as he spoke. He raised his hand and conjured a stream of golden radiance from the sky. Raining from above, it blasted into Tang Wulin.
The Holy Light erupted in a split second. Tang Wulin had not even managed to see the fluctuation of the soul ring’s radiance before he was struck by the Holy Light.
At the same time, the glow on Yue Zhengyu’s body was even more dazzling now. An enormous shining figure emerged behind his back. The figure was about fifteen meters tall and emitted a golden brilliance. Twelve feathered wings flapped gently behind its back. One could not see its face but at the moment it manifested, Yue Zhengyu’s entire body turned translucent.
The crowd of onlookers could see clearly that he had immediately ignited his seventh soul ring which was his martial soul avatar, the Holy Angel Avatar!
Yue Zhengyu and Tang Wulin had been companions for many years, so he had the best understanding of Tang Wulin’s abilities. He knew very well just how terrifying Tang Wulin’s outbursts could be. Thus, he chose to unleash his Holy Light as soon as he launched his first attack without reservation, not giving Tang Wulin a chance to use his powers to defeat him.
Summoning the Holy Angel Avatar resulted in two pairs of pure white feathered wings appearing on Yue Zhengyu’s back. The feathered wings flapped, turning his entire body completely transparent.
At first, Tang Wulin could not see Yue Zhengyu because he was enshrouded by the Holy Light’s explosion. His senses had clearly been hindered by the thick light element. He was so affected by the light element that he could not sense the change in the energy around him.
In other words, he was completely unaware that Yue Zhengyu had already unleashed his martial soul avatar.
There was no doubt that Yue Zhengyu immediately took the upper hand as soon as he attacked. In addition, his usage of battle tactics was ingenious.
Each of Shrek Academy’s inner court students that were watching the battle was endowed with unsurpassed natural talents. They were all at least two-word battle armor masters, yet they could not help nodding in approval upon witnessing the scene. Yue Zhengyu was capable of utilizing his skills to such perfection. Moreover, the power of his light energy was impressive after unleashing his martial soul avatar. It was truly shocking!
In the next moment, they watched as Yue Zhengyu dashed toward Tang Wulin like a golden meteor. Meanwhile, the twelve-winged angel light shadow that was behind him had appeared at Tang Wulin’s back soundlessly.
“Judgement!” A deep voice was heard echoing in the air. It felt as if the entire arena was frozen at this moment. At that point, Yue Zhengyu’s third soul ring was glowing on his body. It was his third soul skill, the Light of Judgement.
The Holy Light that was illuminating Tang Wulin’s body had just begun to weaken when it turned into golden color in an instant. Even those on the outside of the sparring arena could feel its complete domination.
Tang Wulin’s body seemed to warp as he basked in the Light of Judgment. The Light of Judgement was incredibly powerful as the result of being amplified by the Holy Angel Avatar’s effect. It was a holy strike that was so overwhelming that Tang Wulin gave out a muffled grunt.
On the outside of the arena, Long Yeyue could not help nodding upon witnessing the scene. Even though she was bestowed with twin martial souls and was dubbed the Light Dark Dragon Empress, as she could control the two great martial souls, the Light Holy Dragon, and the Dark Holy Dragon, she was still weaker than the Holy Angel martial soul in terms of the level of holiness in the light attribute.
The Holy Angel martial soul was definitely the highest grade light attribute martial soul available. It was most effective when it was used against an evil soul master.
Long Yeyue could already tell that Yue Zhengyu had completed his second Holy Baptism. Having such a holy aura would cause a lot of trouble when used to confront Title Douluo-ranked evil soul masters.
Such a Light of Judgment was enough to eliminate even some higher-level evil soul masters.
Moreover, this scenario was only applicable to when the soul master was not using his battle armor. Once Yue Zhengyu had his full set of three-word battle armor, there was no doubt that he would have his own holy attribute domain. By then, his Holy Light would only be even more terrifying.
Tang Wulin’s movements seemed to have become slower due to the effect of the Light of Judgment. At that point, Yue Zhengyu had already dashed over to his front. A golden Saint Sword had already condensed in his hand during the process of flying over. He swung it directly at Tang Wulin, who was surrounded by the Light of Judgment, without the slightest hesitation.
Tang Wulin’s whole body seemed to have been locked down by the Light of Judgement. When his chest was struck by the Saint Sword, he immediately burst into golden holy flames as he was blasted away by the blow.
It appeared that the Sea God’s Pavilion Master was rendered completely helpless!
However, Yue Zhengyu did not think so. He appeared to have a deep grudge against Tang Wulin. As Tang Wulin was blasted away, the fourth soul ring on Yue Zhengyu’s body glowed. The twelve-winged angel that was unleashing the Light of Judgment behind Tang Wulin’s back fused with him into a single figure, making him taller and larger. Besides the four pairs of golden feathered wings on his back, there was also a pair of wings of light. The Saint Sword in his hand condensed into a solid golden Saint Sword in a split second.
Yue Zhengyu shouted aloud with his hands clenched around the sword hilt, “Cut!”
A stream of golden color seemed to have manifested between Heaven and Earth. It felt as if the golden stream of light was about to cut open the entire world. The gold beam immediately went toward Tang Wulin. There was no other light element that was seeping outward at this point, but all the inner court disciples watched the battle in awe.
Such a powerful attack! He was truly merciless!
Meanwhile, Tang Wulin was finally undergoing some transformations of his own. The golden flames that burned around his body suddenly exploded and turned into countless sparkles that spread toward the surroundings. Soon enough, his new form came into view.
Magnificent golden scales covered his entire body and he held a spear in his hand.
The Golden Dragon Spear appeared to be crystal clear and translucent in texture. After withstanding Yue Zhengyu’s three attacks, he stood there as if nothing had happened.
Tang Wulin’s gaze appeared to be extremely solemn as he watched the arrival of the stream of gold light. A valiant dragon’s roar came out from his body, and in the next moment, a pair of golden dragon wings flapped behind his back.
He had only one pair, but his dragon wings were much larger than any of Yue Zhengyu’s feathered wings. With a single flap of his wings, he immediately accelerated as if he was a stream of dazzling golden light. He welcomed the arrival of the golden beam face to face.
The golden beam of light flashed and vanished immediately. It seemed like it had completely swept past Tang Wulin.
However, a ghastly scene emerged. The portion of the golden beam that struck Tang Wulin was pushed up but not cut through by his body.+1June 10, 2021 at 7:03 pm #1453085
Holy Fusion Skill
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The Golden Dragon Spear touched the golden thread and pushed it such that it was lifted upward and a form of aura that was difficult to describe burst out from Tang Wulin’s body at the same time.
“Boom!” The gold thread exploded into pieces with a loud clatter. At the same time, spear tips simultaneously exploded all over the sky.
Tang Wulin had not only used his Golden Dragon Tremor Burst to blast away Yue Zhengyu’s Angel’s Descent attack but also simultaneously used it to set the Golden Dragon Spear in motion and had unleashed Thousand Accusing Fingers.
Thousands of spear tips filled every person’s eyes as they flooded towards Yue Zhengyu.
Yue Zhengyu’s expression turned unusually solemn as the three pairs of wings behind his back simultaneously opened. He slowly waved the golden Saint Sword in his hand as the fifth soul ring on his body was illuminated.
Terrifying energy fluctuation transformed into the greatest rage and countless little angels suddenly appeared in the surrounding air. Every little angel was flapping its wings gently while roaring in rage. Countless rays of golden Holy Light appeared in the sky soon after. It was as if every particle of the light element had ignited. They transformed into sharp needles that shot toward Tang Wulin.
It was Angel’s Wrath!
Yue Zhengyu’s fifth soul skill Angel’s Wrath had been amplified by Angel’s Descent and Holy Angel Avatar.
Every stream of angel’s light struck Tang Wulin’s spear tips with precision as he blocked Tang Wulin’s attack.
After Tang Wulin had mastered the Thousand Accusing Fingers, this was his first time fighting against such absolute resistance. He could not help profusely praising in his heart. Yue Zhengyu was different as expected. He had truly grown so much.
It was also at this exact moment that he saw the sixth soul ring on Yue Zhengyu’s body suddenly glow for a moment. Even though it was only for a moment, Tang Wulin immediately noticed with vigilance.
A valiant dragon’s roar burst out from his mouth as the gigantic golden dragon’s head instantaneously covered Tang Wulin’s entire body.
It was the combination of Dragon Might and Golden Dragon Roar!
All the energy molecules in the entire sky paused in an instant.
The inner court disciples watching the battle could only feel as if their hearts were about to stop beating when they heard the heinous raging roar.
On the other hand, it was also at this exact moment that a silhouette suddenly enlarged and turned into the exact image of Yue Zhengyu. It appeared amongst the numerous little angels behind Tang Wulin’s back.
Due to Golden Dragon Roar’s effect, both it and Yue Zhengyu slowed down for a moment.
In the next moment, two Holy Angel silhouettes simultaneously dashed towards Tang Wulin. They attacked from both the front and rear!
With the momentary pause, the element of surprise naturally was naturally reduced by a large extent. A faint smile emerged on Tang Wulin’s face.
He instantly retracted the Thousand Accusing Fingers while his left foot stepped into the void.
“Raaarrgggh!” A violent roar was heard exploding in the air. The group of people watched as a black hole suddenly appeared in midair under Tang Wulin’s feet. The edge of the black hole was golden in color just like the violently spinning golden halo. On the other hand, eight little golden dragons were suddenly flung out from the halo. The little dragons simultaneously dashed in all directions.
At the very moment when the black hole appeared, the space within one hundred meters surrounding Tang Wulin’s body in the center was completely warped. Two Holy Angel’s silhouettes were warped soon after as their movements stiffened in an instant.
What was that?
Lan Muzi had been quietly watching the battle all along. His pupils suddenly constricted.
What sort of strength was that? He was surprisingly capable of stepping into the void and breaking the space.
It was because he had the cultivation base of a Title Douluo that he understood how terrifying and powerful Tang Wulin was just by judging the scene in front of him.
Yue Zhengyu was greatly startled too. However, he made a grand display of the strength he had acquired after engaging in closed-door cultivation.
All the golden light disintegrated in a split second and transformed into countless little angels. The little angels flew and scattered everywhere while fleeing away from the attack of those eight golden dragons within the warped halo produced by the tremor burst. Even the black hole was incapable of devouring them.
A wisp of astonishment was revealed in Tang Wulin’s eyes. One should know that the attack earlier was launched with the combination of Golden Dragon Tremor Burst and Golden Dragon Shakes the Earth. It was precisely launched in order to restrict Yue Zhengyu in the air yet he had not expected Yue Zhengyu to have such an ingenious escape method.
Golden radiance overlapped as Yue Zhengyu revealed his figure in the distance once again, but his face was already looking paler now.
The people watching the battle from the outside could only see their exciting battle, while only the one who was truly engaged in the actual battle could experience the immense pressure of confronting a man like Tang Wulin.
From the very beginning when the first stream of Holy Light landed on Tang Wulin’s body, Yue Zhengyu had a feeling that his attack could not injure him. The feeling remained when the Light of Judgement landed on Tang Wulin’s body blasting him away and he still had the same feeling all along.
Tang Wulin felt as high as the mountain and as deep as hell like an abyss before himself. It was as if there was nothing he could do to move Tang Wulin no matter what. It felt as if he would become weaker even when his holy light element landed on Tang Wulin’s body.
What sort of ability was that! How was it that he could not cause any harm to Tang Wulin no matter how much Tang Wulin allowed him to attack?
How would Yue Zhengyu know that Tang Wulin had already achieved a spiritual cultivation base of the Spirit Domain realm? Even though Tang Wulin had no way to control the light element when Yue Zhengyu launched the light element attack, Tang Wulin could certainly weaken the attack a little. In addition to the defense provided by Dragon Air and the super-strong defense of his body, the extent of Yue Zhengyu’s attack was truly incapable of hurting him.
Accurately speaking, at Tang Wulin’s level now, it was truly too difficult for opponents of the same rank to hurt him.
Yue Zhengyu was a little out of breath. The anomalies that surrounded Tang Wulin’s body vanished soon after. He was watching Yue Zhengyu with a smile on his face. “Is that your natural endowment ability?” Tang Wulin asked to Yue Zhengyu.
Yue Zhengyu nodded softly. The Holy Angel Avatar still had another nickname known as ‘Holy Immortal Avatar’. As long as Holy Light still existed, he who possessed the Holy Angel Avatar was almost immortal. As long as there was a gleam of light, he was capable of feeling through the light.
Tang Wulin asked, “do you still have any other tricks up your sleeves? If not then we should end this.”
“Again!” Yue Zhengyu’s competitiveness was triggered. He abruptly inhaled a deep breath as his entire body turned translucent once again.
Everyone witnessed a shocking scene. The seven soul rings on Yue Zhengyu’s body glowed in succession like musical scales, starting from the first soul ring.
It had taken only a moment as all seven soul rings turned completely brilliant.
One could tell from Yue Zhengyu’s expression that he was exerting all strength at present. However precisely because of this, Tang Wulin was watching this scene in astonishment.
What was that…
Meanwhile, Yue Zhengyu’s first, second and third soul ring began to move to everyone’s surprise. They overlapped on one another and surprisingly transformed into a single soul ring.
What was happening here? Did his soul rings fuse? What was that…
Long Yeyue was startled as well. Her eyes became crystal clear in a split second. “This is the Holy Angel Clan’s Holy Fusion Skill. He has successfully cultivated it! It’s impressive even if he has just pulled the stunt for a bit.”
The scene was rather shocking. Let alone witnessing it, most people would not even have heard of this scenario before!
However, it was happening before their eyes.
Yue Zhengyu slowly raised the golden Saint Sword in his hand. The Saint Sword was already undergoing a transformation that could overturn the heaven and earth at present.
Tang Wulin felt like Yue Zhengyu had suddenly managed to comprehend the Swordsoul at present. A gush of exceedingly terrifying aura enshrouded the Saint Sword.
Holy Light, Saint Sword, Light of Judgment. Was that the fusion of these three great soul skills?
Could it be that he was also cultivating a martial soul fusion skill? However, this was not the result of combining two martial souls but the fusion between his soul skills.
Tang Wulin did not think that this was a simple scenario of one plus one equals two. Such overlapping would certainly elevate his power multiple times.
‘I can’t allow him to fuse in such manner!’ Tang Wulin took the initiative to make a move for the very first time. He pointed the Golden Dragon Spear in his hand forward and launched Golden Dragon Soars to the Heaven!
Bluesilver Emperor vines surged out like a swarm of bees and instantly fused into the Golden Dragon Spear. It was his blood soul fusion skill!
Blue Emperor Dragon Soars to the Heaven transformed into a blue-gold giant dragon that dashed straight for Yue Zhengyu.+1
