Chapter 1020: Breakthrough, The Tenth Seal
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
After the formation of these two vortices, Tang Wulin’s cultivation speed did not increase much, but the refinement of his soul power was more powerful. Each drop of soul power he condensed now was extremely pure. Although his cultivation base was still at rank-65, his actual combat stamina could not even be challenged by a Soul Saint.
If he kept going, he would not be facing any great bottlenecks, at least before he became a Title Douluo.
Today, cultivation practice was not the only item on his schedule. He had to overcome this procedure which meant a lot to him.
If he accomplished this procedure, Tang Wulin believed that it would definitely enhance his cultivation base greatly.
He calmed his spirit and mind completely. The vortex formed by the combination of his soul power and bloodline power swirled in a balanced manner. Tang Wulin pictured the entire process in his mind. After he went through the procedure once more, the crucial moment had finally arrived.
He took a deep breath, and his complementing yin-yang vortices gradually slowed down. Tang Wulin momentarily severed the connection between his Dragon Core and soul core. At the same time, he controlled the bloodline power within his Dragon Core so that it shot upward and slowly entered the golden world in his heart.
The procedure that he wanted to undertake today was to break through the tenth Golden Dragon King’s seal.
Old Tang had once told him that it would be in his favor to break through the latter seals as soon as possible if the conditions allowed. It was because he would have enough time to strengthen his body with his extant Golden Dragon King’s bloodline power. This would increase his chances of breaking through the remaining seals in his future cultivation.
Regarding the final nine seals, every single breakthrough was a complete transformation. However, every single breakthrough was also a trial of life and death.
Tang Wulin knew about this from Old Tang, but he had never actually experienced it. Now, he would be carrying out his first attempt.
He had broken through the ninth Golden Dragon King’s seal while he was in the Dragon Valley. With the enhancement from the many dragon spirits in the Dragon Valley, everything happened smoothly as in the formation of a canal when the water came. It had given him more time to accumulate.
After such a long period of accumulation, he had formed his Dragon Core and soul core consecutively. His cultivation base was also elevated to the rank of a Soul Emperor. In his own eyes, he completely possessed the ability to break through the tenth seal. He had accumulated enough for this moment.
He did not feel anxious. He was confident that he could accomplish the breakthrough. The more important issue was the experience of the breakthrough itself. The tenth seal held an extraordinary meaning. He wanted to experience just how difficult it would be to break through the final nine seals!
Tang Wulin remembered everything Old Tang told him. If he could truly absorb all the energy from the eighteen Golden Dragon King seals, he would be the new Golden Dragon King and attain the rank of a god.
It was a shortcut for Tang Wulin, a shortcut which no one else had access to. What he wanted to know now was how difficult this shortcut would be to traverse!
His bloodline power rushed up to charge against the tenth seal. For an instant, Tang Wulin felt his entire body tremble.
A faint glow appeared around him. The densely-packed golden dragon scales surfaced on his skin. A dense, blood essence power surged forth vigorously and a faint dragon’s roar seemed to reverberate around his body.
Tang Wulin’s spirits were stable. The density of his accumulation had resulted in a positive effect at this moment.
The first charge was a trial run. The tenth Golden Dragon King’s seal was very tough, unlike the other seals before it. With the formation of his two cores, he could faintly see the condition of the seal with his inner sight.
The seal was like a wall decorated with beautiful patterns. For some unknown reason, Tang Wulin was shocked to find these familiar patterns resembling his Bluesilver Emperor somewhat.
He felt it was connected to his bloodline. It made him feel very close to the seal’s power.
At this moment, an unexpected thought suddenly appeared within Tang Wulin’s mind. Where did the seal within him come from? Old Tang had never told him about this.
‘Where did the Golden Dragon King’s essence come from?’
The thought flashed across his mind. Now, he had to focus all his energy into charging the seal. He had no time to think of anything else. His bloodline power formed the appearance of a Golden Dragon in his body.
The patterns on the seal flickered with a dazzling splendor as it blocked the energy’s charge. However, Tang Wulin felt strongly that there was another surge of bloodline power which shared the same origins as his delirious charging against the seal from within.
The energies charged against the seal in a pincer attack as they attempted to break the seal.
A strong sensation welled up within Tang Wulin’s body. He felt as if his body was being continually compressed without much need for his control. The bloodline power within his body charged against the seal time and again. The patterns on the seal began to get messy. Crack lines began appearing silently.
Finally, from the first expanding crack, a golden red glow surged forth and instantly charged Tang Wulin’s bloodline power.
Tang Wulin felt his body shake violently. A ferocious and brutal aura that was difficult to describe spread throughout his entire body. He felt as if everything in the world was about to be massacred. The terrifying aura made Tang Wulin’s entire body shake slightly.
The Golden Dragon King bloodline power within him boiled over instantly. There was no need for him to control it. The bloodline power began to charge at the seal in a frenzy.
The golden red glow which had leaked out of the seal intensified. The ferocious and brutal aura could also be clearly felt. Tang Wulin felt his entire spirit affected.
At the crucial moment, he faced it with a focused spirit. His soul core which had remained dormant under his control now unleashed an immense amount of soul power which surged toward his bloodline power. His fair and gentle Mysterious Heaven Method’s power began merging swiftly with his bloodline power. They worked together with his bloodline power and slowly merged into his body.
With the addition of the Mysterious Heaven Method, the wildness of the bloodline power weakened just as he had hoped. At the same time, Tang Wulin felt a tinge of coolness from his Saints Craftsman’s badge infusing itself into his soul’s world. That stabilized his spirit.
With the ferocious and brutal aura wreaking havoc, the seal shattered with a boom. The dense golden red glow instantly filled every crevice in Tang Wulin’s body.
Tang Wulin’s body started shaking violently. His dorm room was painted in golden red.
The extremely ferocious and barbarous aura wreaked havoc in his body. Around him, a Golden Dragon’s illusory shadow appeared. Although its body was illusory, its eyes were exceptionally sharp. It was a pair of blood-red eyes with a fierce look. The room flickered with lights and the ferocious and barbarous aura kept intensifying as it stimulated Tang Wulin’s body.
At this instant, Tang Wulin suddenly recalled his past opponent, Long Yue. When Long Yue utilized his Mountain Dragon King’s power, his emotions would sometimes go out of control.
No matter what, Tang Wulin could not go berserk. If he lost control over his own powers, would he not turn into a killing machine?
When he thought about this, Tang Wulin bit the tip of his tongue. The sharp pain stimulated his mind and rapidly stabilized his spirit. No matter how strong the ferocious and brutal aura was, he blocked it forcefully. He would not allow it to invade his soul sea. At the same time, he relaxed his body and allowed his two cores to form the complementing yin-yang vortices again to absorb the terrifying blood essence power which came from the tenth seal.
Old Tang had not exaggerated. The intensity of the blood essence power which surged out from the tenth seal was so great that Tang Wulin could not even begin to measure it. He had been preparing for it a long time and had broken through a few seals consecutively. However, when this seal’s power charged at him, he felt as if his body was about to crumble.
Fortunately, his Dragon Core and soul core shone brightly at the same time. With the swirling of his complementing yin-yang vortices, they managed to guide the bloodline essence which surged forth wildly into a swirl. Although it was not able to absorb the energy directly, it could at least reduce the impact these wild energies had on his body.
His body began to swell up. On the surface of his body, his blood vessels thickened and bulged under his skin. They resembled little dragons spread throughout his body.
Tang Wulin’s body also began turning golden red. The scales on his body was the color of blood. They had turned into the color of blood from their original golden color.
His body trembled violently. The Golden Dragon King’s energy was also quivering. Each time it shook, a dense, blood essence power would be released from Tang Wulin’s body. It filled his dorm room with a terrifying aura.
Tang Wulin continually improved his cultivation base. His attitude and spiritual power were also improving. However, at the current moment, he was gradually losing the ability to think.
On top of the bracelet, which he wore on his wrist, a seven-colored gemstone flickered. The bracelet was from the Dragon Valley. It silently absorbed a portion of the wild bloodline aura which gradually turned golden red.
