Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The Specter King was very cautious. He had studied Tang Wulin’s battle recordings closely, so he was rather wary of Tang Wulin’s explosive power. He understood that his own immunity to physical attacks did not make him invulnerable to everything. Moreover, energy blasts were still rather effective against him. His biggest advantage was that his spiritual power far exceeded other soul masters of the same rank. He was especially skilled at predicting the enemy’s movements and striking first.
When he found out that he was about to face Tang Wulin in the competition, he strategically planned out his battle tactics at once. He would use the methods that could consume Tang Wulin’s indomitable drive as much as possible. There was a saying that one’s toughness could not last forever, so Tang Wulin’s gung-ho battle method would have its limits too. If he was capable of withstanding the opponent’s wild strikes then opportunity would be waiting for him. He was a patient man and was never in a rush to complete tasks. Yue Zhengyu still lost to him despite having every advantage. As Yue Zhengyu had found out, it took more than just luck.
Tang Wulin touched the tip of his toes gently against the ground and golden light shone around him. The first item that appeared was his Dragon Moon battle armor’s golden mask. Soon after, golden sparkles bloomed from his body as his two-word battle armor attached to him. How could he be careless when his opponent had unleashed his battle armor as soon as he entered the arena? The opponent was still a Soul Sage-rank two-word battle armor master regardless.
His left foot touched against the ground and the dragon wings behind his back flapped mightily. In the next moment, Tang Wulin had shot straight toward the opponent like a golden meteor.
“Golden Dragon King, Golden Dragon King, Golden Dragon King!” From the viewing platform, the audience’s roaring chant burst out immediately.
Their favorite part was watching the Golden Dragon King’s explosive power dominate the match. Even though the battle would last for a relatively shorter time, the momentary outburst would linger in the audience’s minds for much longer.
The Specter King’s silhouette shimmered as he fell back rapidly without even the slightest intention of resisting Tang Wulin. None of the four purple and three black soul rings on his body were glowing. As he moved, his entire figure seemed to have turned ghostlike. His silhouette was like a faint remnant of a shadow hanging in the air. With his speed, he arrived at the edge of the other side of the arena in just a moment. Indeed, he was slightly swifter even than Tang Wulin under the power of his dragon wings.
Such incredible speed! What an amazing agility-type soul master!
Tang Wulin stopped in the center of the arena and looked toward the opponent in the distance with a burning gaze. When he had dashed out, this opponent had only opened the scaly wings on his back to adjust his balance but not to fly. Even so, he was as fast as ever. He was even quicker than Tang Wulin in ordinary battles.
Usually, a soul master’s best method to deal with such an opponent would be to use a coverage-type domain attack that left the opponent with nowhere to hide. Such high speed would certainly cost the soul master in terms of defense.
However, the Specter King was not only fast, but he also had his own tricks to limit the enemy’s attacks. It was because of this ability of his, which had brought him fame and earned him the nickname of the Specter King, that he was capable of advancing this far. He would always be able to locate the opponent’s weakness and strike a critical blow.
With a wave of his right hand, Tang Wulin summoned the Golden Dragon Spear into his palm out of thin air. The Golden Dragon Spear, over four-and-a-half meters in length, appeared in his hand while the golden battle armor added to his height till it exceeded three meters, making him appear even more majestic. Judging by appearance, no other contestant in this year’s competition could compare to him.
Tang Wulin slowly raised the Golden Dragon Spear in his hand. ‘So we’re fighting with raw speed now? Then I shall see if you’re really capable of blocking my attack.’
Tang Wulin understood his opponent’s battle tactics at a glance. ‘You’re trying to exhaust me before finishing me off? We’ll find out if you truly have the ability to tire me out.’ After he recently gained control over his evolved strength, he had yet to completely let loose. It was just the right time to give it a try and see if he could truly exercise precise control over his power.
He pointed the Golden Dragon Spear at the Specter King in the distance. Both parties were a little over five hundred meters apart. The distance was relatively safe despite their cultivation bases. An agility-type soul master would benefit from the distance as he would have adequate time to respond.
However, just as Tang Wulin’s Golden Dragon Spear pointed at the Specter King in the distance, Contestant Number One Hundred and Forty-two suddenly felt an icy chill gushing out from his heart and reaching into his bones.
‘Could it be that he can still attack me even from such a great distance?’
While he was still feeling confused, Tang Wulin suddenly advanced. He took a big step forward with his left leg and stamped heavily against the ground.
A massive pit abruptly appeared in the middle of the arena. The ground surrounding it was cracking apart in large chunks. Meanwhile, he rebounded from the stomp, rapidly accelerating as he dashed his way forth.
The Specter King reacted as soon as Tang Wulin set himself in motion. The Specter King also accelerated, as the third soul ring on his body shimmered with light. He moved forward like an illusory phantom. His third soul skill was supposed to be used for acceleration, but after many years of cultivation, he could even control such high speed perfectly. It was very useful for dodging attacks.
However, he suddenly heard a raging roar loud enough to shake the very heavens.
The valiant dragon’s roar echoed through the entire arena as an enormous golden dragon’s head appeared on Tang Wulin’s body. The furious roar of the golden dragon head over five meters in diameter seemed to make the entire stage ripple with golden striations.
The Specter King was unaffected by most physical attacks, but he was not immune to soundwaves! He was stunned and his speed immediately reduced by one beat.
Nevertheless, the Spectre King was truly impressive. As soon as he realized he was in trouble, he reacted to the situation in a split second. His seventh soul ring suddenly started glowing. His entire body turned from illusory and transparent into a ball of gas. It was his avatar, Specter.
This was the greatest support for a seven-ringed Soul Sage. His martial soul avatar’s power was undoubtedly enhanced to its strongest level under the amplification of his battle armor.
Even so, his speed had decreased. Tang Wulin flapped the wings behind his back strenuously and had arrived before his adversary just as the opponent unleashed his seventh soul skill.
The Golden Dragon Spear thrust at the Specter King at lightning speed. The spear’s light pulsated and the white-gold radiance shined so brightly upon the faint blue phantom that it looked to be the same color.
The Specter King promptly chose to turn his body slightly to the side and face the spear’s radiance, then immediately pounced toward Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin was hit by a frosty chill. The Specter King was so fast that his illusionary body almost penetrated through Tang Wulin when both of them came into contact with each other. Meanwhile, the chill that originated from the bottom of Tang Wulin’s heart made him feel as if his entire body was numb.
‘Are you trying to pass through my body?’
Tang Wulin sneered. The Dragon Core in his body contracted like a heart then burst out violently. The powerful and vigorous blood essence fluctuation caused a gold-red light to emerge around his body.
The Specter King cried out in agony as his silhouette turned even more transparent at once! Just as Tang Wulin had predicted, his Golden Dragon King’s ultimate Yang and ultimate indomitable bloodline aura was naturally suppressive to specters!
There was no need to for him to turn around when he had already rotated his hand and struck with the other end of Golden Dragon Spear’s tip. The spear headed straight for the Specter King who had just surged out from Tang Wulin’s body moments ago but had yet to truly paralyze him.
As the Specter King screamed in pain, he swayed his body while the fourth soul ring on his body glowed. He suddenly split into two spectral orbs before splitting into four balls once again and flying out in four directions.
He relied on this soul skill when he was fighting against Yue Zhengyu. Yue Zhengyu exhausted a large amount of holy energy, and the Specter King seized the opportunity to claim victory for himself in the end.
When he suddenly sensed that Tang Wulin’s indomitable bloodline aura was capable of suppressing him, his first choice was to flee so he could put some distance between them and scrutinize the opponent again.
However, would Tang Wulin ever give him such a chance?
Tang Wulin raised his right foot and stamped against the ground ferociously. There was a violent tremor burst through the floor within a thirty-meter range. Eight golden dragons soared up from the ground and wrapped around the surrounding space akin to a prisoner’s cage. It was even more terrifying when the Golden Dragon Spear in Tang Wulin’s hand suddenly burst out and unleashed thousands of white-gold spear’s of light that surrounded the Specter King.
From the Golden Dragon Roar to the Golden Dragon Shocks the Earth, Tang Wulin had dashed forth, accelerated and thrust the spear out. A gold-red bloodline aura burst from his body, and he launched the Golden Dragon Shocks the Earth. Eight golden dragons soared into the sky before thousands of light spears flew outward.
The audience was ecstatically watching the entire process unfold in just a few short moments. Most of the spectators, especially those that were not soul masters, had one common thought on their minds and it was that this was the battle! This was the battle between supremely powerful soul masters!
The Specter King howled as the blue light from his body suddenly glowed brighter. Four balls of light failed to disperse and flee so the balls collided back into the center once again and fused into one. Then, the ball suddenly condensed and transformed into a sharp blue needle. It did not attempt to break through the tight encirclement, but instead, it reared up before flying straight at Tang Wulin. He attacked the enemy’s vital parts in an attempt to draw their fire.
