Chapter 1040: Spear King
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The vigorous collision seemed to have affected everyone. Even Number Sixty-eight, who had lost, was praised by all.
The final individual who still towered over the center of the arena was the mecha which shone with golden light. Even though its body was riddled with countless dents and cracks, the sheer sight of which was horrifying, he remained standing.
In the end, its aura was still persisting, and its domineering air was still present. It was still the victor of this match. It was still the most awe-inspiring champion!
“Spear King! Spear King! Spear King!”
It was not known who started the cheer. Even the commentators could not help but join in.
In this year’s mecha competition, there were many mecha masters who chose the spear as their weapon. However, there were only a handful who managed to enter the final stages of the competition. The ones who could represent all of these mecha masters were undoubtedly the two mechas of Number Sixty-six and Number Sixty-eight.
Although the match today was only the final round of the group matches, it had certainly given rankings to the spear-wielding mecha masters. Without question, Number Sixty-six’s spearing technique was the most powerful.
Tang Wulin now had his eyes shut while he stayed within the Star Dou Cabin. He replayed the scenes of his final thrust as they lingered in his mind.
He got it. He seemed to have really gotten it this time.
The moment when he stabbed out with his spear, he clearly felt that, in his mind, his figure seemed to have overlapped with Old Tang’s body when he had demonstrated the Thousand Accusing Fingers to him.
It was only now that he could be completely certain that he had achieved some breakthrough with his Thousand Accusing Fingers.
A faint smile appeared on Tang Wulin’s face. All those days of cultivation were not for naught. He had been cultivating for so long just for this one spearing technique. However, in the end, the harvest would always make one happy.
The victor of the group contest emerged into the next round!
He had entered into the ranks of the top sixteen in both the soul master battles and mecha battles. He was also one of the hottest picks for the victor in both battles. Although he did not have as much support in the mecha battles as he had had in the soul master battles, that was because Tang Wulin had not incorporated very many of his soul skills throughout the process of the mecha competition. He was more focused on improving his control over his mecha.
He would only settle for being the final victor!
“I’ve agreed,” a low voice seemed to fill the entire dark world. On a high throne sat a giant figure. He was pitch black all over and looked like a giant humanoid sculpture. However, when he spoke, the entire space contorted intensely.
In the skies, a grey figure that was just as large nodded toward him, “Very good. I’ll go make the preparations now. Nothing can stop us this time. We must destroy every threat. Your child will not have died in vain. Once we invade and take over the other world, all the energy we consumed will be replenished.”
“Don’t give me that nonsense. That world was supposed to be ours to devour in the first place. Since the humans were willing to connect the passage for us, that world is ours for the taking.”
“So, did we establish a contract with them already?”
“We can! Their objectives are not contradictory to ours. What they want is to kill every living being. What we want is to devour all the energy contained in that world. What they want is more resentment and destruction energy when everything is destroyed. What we want is all the energy. It won’t hurt us to give a portion of that to them.”
“Those humans are wild. They want to make destruction the core and hatred the foundation when they remake their Divine Realm. If we can obtain enough energy, we can make our plane evolve. This is truly a win-win situation.”
“You go make the preparations. The nine of us will establish the contract with them. I wager that they’ll dare not go back to their word.”
“Mmm, it’s settled then. We must first completely destroy the humans that have been blocking our path for all these years.”
“The passage has been connected for so long now. It’s time we take some decisive actions. If we continue to be conservative and wait for an opportunity to arise, who knows how long it will be? Although we’ll suffer some losses, all our efforts will be put into this one final push. If we succeed, the benefits this will bring us will exceed the sum of all the small worlds we devoured before this.”
Immersed in his meditation, Tang Wulin silently felt every elemental particle in the world around him. Blood One had told him that it was a long process from being able to sense the presence of the elements to entering Spirit Domain.
Being able to sense the existence of the elements only meant that it was possible for him to enter Spirit Domain. The true sign of completing Spirit Domain was being able to clearly feel and control the outer elements through his spiritual power. Without a doubt, with Tang Wulin’s current cultivation base, he still had a long way to go to reach this goal.
That was why he had to reach out for the elements continuously. The process of sensing the elements was also good cultivation method for his own spiritual power. At the same time, he could understand the fundamental qualities of the world better.
Although Tang Wulin’s current cultivation base was only of Soul Emperor-rank, Blood One had already taught him many things about Title Douluos. If he attained the rank of Title Douluo, elevating by even a single rank would be extremely difficult. Understanding the world’s origins and getting near to those origins was the most crucial part of it all.
There were no skills contained in this. It was more toward a personal experience and understanding of the entire thing. Every person had a different experience with the origin. Without a doubt, whoever was closer to the truth would be closer to the peak.
No one could tell another person what the world’s origin was. This was because the conditions of everyone’s hearts were different. Everyone had different abilities, hence, the origin that each person was the closest to was also different. This was a mystery in itself. That was why, every person had to experience and understand it for themselves.
Without a doubt, Tang Wulin was exceptionally gifted with natural talent. He was surprisingly able to defeat Blood Nine with his six-ringed Soul Emperor’s cultivation base. Although Blood Nine’s intentional holding back of his power had helped, and also he had underestimated Tang Wulin greatly, he was still a Title Douluo. The fact that Tang Wulin was able to defeat him had shocked the entire Blood God Battalion.
Hence, Blood One hoped that he could start doing some things that only Title Douluos could do. He wanted him to lay a firm foundation when he was in the prime of his youth to prepare himself for when he rose to the pinnacle of the human race.
The impact technology’s advancement had on soul masters was immense. It had lowered the soul masters’ social standing. However, without question, top-ranked soul masters were still the select few who stood at the apex of the world.
When Shrek Academy was hit with the great disaster, if the Atlas Douluo had wanted to run away without caring for anything else, nobody would have been able to stop him. In the end, he chose to sacrifice himself to protect Tang Wulin and the others, leaving the final seeds of hope for Shrek Academy, while putting a dent in the Holy Spirit Cult’s forces.
One could only imagine how terrifying a four-word battle armor master Limit Douluo’s combat strength was.
Once a person was of that rank, he would have tactical consideration across the entire Federation. It was also the true reason why Shrek Academy had been standing for so long.
If Tang Wulin wanted to rebuild Shrek Academy, he would need a force that could be reckoned with. However, he also needed absolute strength.
He reflected in his meditation. After an unknown amount of time, Tang Wulin gradually entered the state of divine meditation. Lately, his various abilities had been improving too quickly. That was why he allocated more time for his own meditation. After the growth in his strength, he needed more time to understand it. Only ample comprehension could lead to a better understanding and control over his own body.
The final rounds of the Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge were about to start. There were not as many matches as before. However, the opponents he would be facing were undeniably the strongest among the Federation’s younger generation. It might have been more apt to describe them as the strongest individuals who were three-word battle armor masters or below.
Every single match after this would be extremely difficult. He knew that there were two others who managed to make it to the final rounds from the army. Ma Shan was not one of them.
