Tang Wulin thought back to how he felt when he was unleashing his soul skill. He was amazed to discover that his memory seemed to have improved as well. He could recall every detail of the battle precisely.
It felt unusually clear. No, that was not the blood soul fusion skill unleashed by his soul power and blood essence power at the time, only the Golden Dragon King’s fifth soul skill. It was purely the motion of his bloodline power. Then, the bloodline power produced a form of strange high-frequency vibration. The vibration produced a resonance wave that overlapped in layers and accumulated continuously before exploding on Ma Shan’s body over and over again. It was formed from the overlapping resonance wave.
On the other hand, the attacking ability of such a blow was completed by his bloodline’s vibration. Due to the power of the explosion, it consumed an extremely large amount of energy. When his bloodline power was almost completely exhausted, his Dragon Core contracted violently and extracted the energy required from itself. His soul power was stripped away and converted into blood essence power in order to maintain such a high-frequency explosion.
Could it be that his soul core and Dragon Core could convert each other’s energy now that he had broken through the tenth seal?
This also signified that the relationship between the two cores was growing even closer.
If the soul skill unleashed purely using soul power was so powerful, then, how about when he used the blood soul fusion skill? Even though the rate of consumption would certainly be quicker, the explosive force would be even more powerful as well, right?
‘I’ll give it a try for sure later!’
As Tang Wulin began his meditation and recalled all the gains and losses from the battle with Ma Shan earlier, he immediately felt that he had an abundance of benefits from the experience.
The elevation was an extremely direct process as it was related to his overall fighting capacity.
However, it was no easy task using a brand-new ability in a genuine battle. He would still require an even longer period of time and more actual combat experience. Fortunately, the Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge’s final stage had begun!
A few days later, Tang Wulin was surprised to find that the situation in the battle network had changed when he entered it once again.
Upon logging into the system, the first thing that appeared before him was a great golden door. He stepped past the illuminated door and in the next moment, he was transferred to a completely different spot after he crossed its threshold.
“Welcome to Star Dou City,” announced the electronic voice.
Star Dou City? Was that the city of the Star Dou Battle Network? There was no doubt that the entire artificial intelligence system had only begun to be applied, so there were still a lot of flaws but everything was definitely improving.
Star Dou City appeared to be more advanced than their West Division, as it at least looked more like a city. The two words ‘Little Tang’ floated above Tang Wulin’s head while displaying his battle results. What a waste that it was no longer the original undefeated score anymore.
“Please proceed to Star Dou City’s Great Battle Soul Arena to prepare for the competition. The first round of the final is the elimination tournament. Please be well-prepared for the battle. Your opponent will be drawn randomly.” The electronic voice spoke once again as it reminded Tang Wulin about the competition.
Yes, the first three rounds of the Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge finals were all eliminations in order to determine the last thirty-two contestants before proceeding with the round-robin tournament.
Tang Wulin could clearly remember his mission. He could not complete it by becoming one of the final three this time, but he would need to become the champion of the soul master competition.
He thought it was peculiar that he would not have been so confident in the past, but ever since he defeated Blood Nine, Tang Wulin felt that it was possible for him to become a champion. The feeling and anticipation had only grown more intense after he broke through the Golden Dragon King’s tenth seal. The only thing that troubled him was that he did have complete control over his strength, so this was quite an issue.
The best method to test his fighting capabilities was to engage in battles!
‘Finals, here I come!’
An arrow formed from shadows and light guided Tang Wulin as he headed to the Star Dou Great Battle Soul Arena for inspection and registration.
The process of the inspection was very simple for it was immediately completed after he arrived at the designated division. However, Tang Wulin discovered something unusual. He did not see any other contestant in this place.
The location he was at did not appear to be that different from the West Division, while the Star Dou Great Battle Soul Arena, looking only slightly larger, was empty. He was there all alone. Why was this happening?
Tang Wulin was unaware that this was a measure taken by the system in order to ensure every contestant’s identity was even more secure.
The words ‘Little Tang’ above Tang Wulin’s head slowly disappeared when he was stationed in the golden region. In place was a code name with only the number thirty-three.
‘That’s pretty weird. Are we allowed to participate in the competition with just a code name? It’s rather interesting, though. I wonder if the Federation can see my name in any case. I guess it doesn’t matter if they know, now that I’m in the Blood God Army.’
“The inspection is complete. The automatic draw of opponents is complete. Please be prepared for the competition. In ten minutes, your match shall begin.”
As expected, it was quite different from the preliminary stage. At least, its manner was not as simple and crude as before.
Tang Wulin was unaware of how important the Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge in the future was. Anyone capable of entering the finals in the first challenge would leave behind a major mark in the history of the Star Dou Battle Network and be remembered by history.
He crossed his legs and took a seat as he focused his mind and calmed his breathing. Through his cultivation over the previous few days, Tang Wulin discovered that his spiritual power seemed to have improved remarkably following the elevation of his cultivation base. Moreover, it was a leap of advancement this time. Although he was certain that he had yet to breakthrough to Spirit Domain, he had certainly advanced further into Spirit Abyss.
He could clearly sense the most minute changes on every part of his body through his spiritual power now. He could also use it to feel any signs of disturbance in the outside world at a great distance. More importantly, he could distinguish the elements of the formless energy molecules in the air. This was the most powerful part for him. According to his knowledge gained from his studies in Shrek Academy, one needed to achieve Spirit Domain in order to do this.
The outstanding feature of the Spirit Domain was its clear distinction of elements. Even though it was only a vague feeling for him right now that was not crystal clear, he could sense that he was not far from that point.
On the other hand, Spirit Domain was already the highest level achievable by ordinary human beings. It was said that when one achieved the Spirit Domain spirit cultivation base, a spiritual domain would be produced on its own in the person. Everyone’s spiritual domain was different but undoubtedly, having one was highly beneficial for the person’s cultivation base while also significantly amplifying one’s fighting capabilities.
Every Title Douluo had the spiritual power cultivation base of Spirit Domain as a foundation. It was said that one could never enter the realm of demi-gods without achieving the spirit rank of Spirit Domain.
He would return to learn from Blood One after the competition ended and also look into how far his spiritual cultivation base had gone.
Tang Wulin made up his mind. There was no doubt that the Heartless Douluo Cao Dezhi acting as Blood One was a Limit Douluo and he was definitely a Spirit Domain powerhouse.
Even with today’s technological advancement, where Limit Douluo’s strategic power was not as great as before, they were certainly not weaklings weak either. The Federation dared not go too far with the Tang Sect mainly because of the two Limit Douluos that were still present, the Heartless Douluo and the Amorous Douluo. Tang Wulin suspected that even the Federation was unaware that Blood One from the Blood God Army was the Heartless Douluo.
The Blood God Army seemed to have its own specialized system for maintaining the secrecy of its identity. No matter where one came from, every rule and regulation here had to be followed upon entering the Blood God Army.
Tang Wulin was extremely pleased that the Blood God Army had already sacrificed so much for the Federation, so it was entirely appropriate for the Blood God Army to protect itself from external affairs.
Ten minutes passed in the blink of an eye. A stream of golden light flashed past and Tang Wulin had already arrived in the middle of the competition arena.
The area was silent. The entire competition stage was emitting a faint white glow. The stage had a diameter of one thousand meters, so it was absolutely enormous! One thousand meters in diameter was considered a luxury even for a mecha battle.
In the distance, his opponent had already appeared about three hundred meters away. Their face was blurred, so he could only tell that the opponent was a man with a number suspended above his head. It was one hundred and eighteen.
Tang Wulin squinted his eyes and adjusted his body while he waited for the electronic voice’s announcement.
As opposed to the tranquility on the competition stage, the entire Federation was filled with excitement at present on the outside of the competition stage.
The Federation spared no expense when investing massive funds to provide live soul streaming across their territory on the Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge’s final stage.
