Chapter 1053: The Ghastly Attack
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Meanwhile, just after throwing the Golden Dragon Spear, Tang Wulin launched the mecha’s propeller at once. His mecha dashed toward the opponent like a giant dragon.
Attacking the enemy’s vital points would draw their guard so he could fight for a chance to get closer. Once he got within a certain range of his opponent, he could defeat him without a doubt.
Tang Wulin waved his hand in the air, summoning the Golden Dragon Spear back into his grasp so that he could throw it once more. He was using his Golden Dragon Spear as a long-range attack weapon.
This time, Contestant Number Two Hundred and Thirty-one reacted in time. An artillery shell was used to intercept it, but it was not meant to stop the Golden Dragon Spear. His ingenious attack struck the area slightly below the tip of Golden Dragon Spear. It was not meant to block the spear but to change its flight trajectory so the spear would not reach him.
Ten artillery shells were fired, four shells to change the Golden Dragon Spear’s direction while the remaining six were used for an extremely high-end technique.
It was an overlapping explosion!
The so-called overlapping explosion was created by using an artillery shell to catch up to previously fired shell and produce an explosion in a precise location. This would be done using a series of artillery shells to prolong the explosion. Six artillery shells would produce the overlapping explosion effect quickly. As these artillery shells were blasted out in linear pattern this time, it was the most powerful explosion he could create.
Naturally, the explosion was aimed at blocking Tang Wulin’s movements.
Having learned his lesson earlier, Tang Wulin would never allow the opponent to have his way. Bluesilver Emperor vines surged out like a swarm of bees and wrapped around his mecha, enveloping it completely. To the audience’s eyes, the vines were akin to giant living pythons. Golden vertebra-like veins glowed from the inside of these Bluesilver Emperor vines, shimmering with their own intense radiance. The mecha did not attempt to dodge as it charged headfirst into the opponent.
‘Isn’t… isn’t that a little too reckless? He is dashing straight into the explosion!’
If this was a standard model mecha, it would have immediately been blown to pieces by the overlapping explosion. Yet, all the blast damage was blocked by the Bluesilver Emperor’s protection.
Tang Wulin’s ability was elevated. The fusion of his bloodline power and soul power, the perfect connection between his Dragon Core and soul core, allowed Tang Wulin’s martial soul to improve all the time. When the Bluesilver Emperor martial soul was equipped with the Golden Dragon King’s offensive and defensive attributes, how would this tiny bit of explosive power matter to it at all?
The Golden Dragon Spear forcefully dashed out from the explosion and returned to Tang Wulin’s hand once again. Oddly, this time Tang Wulin’s mecha tossed the Golden Dragon Spear high up into the air.
Yes, he had not tossed it at his opponent but skyward. There was a flash of golden light, and the Golden Dragon Spear vanished in midair.
What? What was he up to?
Contestant Number Two Hundred and Thirty-one had only a vague understanding of what Tang Wulin was doing. He was a long-range attack mecha master himself, so naturally, he knew that the most terrifying thing about long-range attacks was that they had already started their flight process before appearing at their targets.
There was no doubt that the Golden Dragon Spear was bound to drop, but when and where it would drop, he did not know. On the other hand, his opponent would not have launched such an attack without being able to control it well. In other words, the Golden Dragon Spear would remain suspended over his head, and once it dropped, it could possibly cause a fatal blow to him. The Golden Dragon Spear had already proven to him when it had flown out the first time, that its incomparable sharpness was not something he was capable of defending against.
Number Two Hundred and Thirty-one immediately reacted to the situation. As a long-range attack soul master, his judgment was of the essence. He would need to make accurate assessments at once in order to defeat the enemy on the everchanging battlefield in order to ensure his own safety.
Thus, he did not pay attention to the Golden Dragon Spear in the sky and dashed swiftly toward Tang Wulin, choosing to go on the offensive himself.
The bright red color on the mecha darkened, turning crimson in a split second. The extremely high temperature even caused some of the metal on the surface of the mecha to melt.
He immediately tossed the soul cannon in his hand aside. The mecha raised its arms as a Black Sun orb arose from his back. A ring of golden light surrounded the sun.
With a wave of his arms, he sent the black ball, shimmering with golden light, flying in Tang Wulin’s direction.
He was not depending on the mecha but his own abilities. His ability to control a long-range attack ensured that his attack’s power was definitely more dangerous than the mecha’s attacking ability. Contestant Number Two Hundred and Thirty-one, with the nickname of the Battery, would certainly use his power to its full extent. There was no doubt that his control over his own soul skill would surpass the soul cannon earlier, as it was but a standard model.
Like a raging bull, Tang Wulin dashed forward with an indomitable will, having no intention of changing his direction. He dashed into the welcoming embrace of that black-gold light orb.
‘I’m not going to dodge. I want to see how you’re going to use your attack.’ Meanwhile, the Bluesilver Emperor vines wrapped around him had already bloomed fully, making the mecha look like a monster with countless tentacles. No one knew what Tang Wulin was about to do before both parties smashed into one another.
The artillery shell flew its way there as both fighters collided almost in an instant. The Bluesilver Emperor at Tang Wulin’s front suddenly gathered together and transformed into countless spears that pierced outward. Vines of Bluesilver Emperor gathered in the center as it aimed directly for that black-gold orb.
At that point, the distance between both of them was about one hundred meters.
Three black-gold light orbs had already flown out from behind in succession. Just as the first light orb was about to come into contact with Tang Wulin’s Bluesilver Emperor, the three new light orbs suddenly accelerated and fused together, becoming an even larger orb. Then, this orb produced a ghastly suction force that pulled in the first light orb which was about to collide into Tang Wulin.
Bluesilver Emperor missed its target, as the four black-gold light orbs had already fused into one, transforming into a huge light orb over five meters in diameter.
Golden electric current flickered on the surface of the orb.
The awesome energy contained within it could clearly be felt and seen with the naked eye. In the next moment, the light orb suddenly vanished.
Yes, it had vanished into thin air just like a black hole, soundless and without a trace.
Blazing heat instantly burst in the depths of Tang Wulin’s soul. Tang Wulin’s stared as he could sense the surrounding space fluctuations were suddenly growing more intense.
‘This is not good.’
Number Two Hundred and Thirty-one not only possessed a powerful fire-type martial soul but also a second spatial-type martial soul.
Tang Wulin never expected that this opponent was capable of condensing such a powerful fire-type attack and delivered it through his spatial ability straight into the inside of his mecha, no matter how calm he was.
His spiritual power had already reached the peak of the Spirit Abyss realm and was developing toward Spirit Domain now. As a result, he was aware as soon as the spatial fluctuation had appeared.
He had twin martial souls of flame and space!
He could only imagine the result if he were to allow that terrifying black fireball to appear on the inside of his mecha. Even if his defense was strong enough to allow him to block such a deadly attack, he would be injured for sure as well. Moreover, the mecha would certainly not have survived that.
There was no doubt that Tang Wulin’s impressive performance made the opponent use his fail-safe trick which he had been concealing all along. His method of transferring his attack straight to the inside of the opponent’s mecha even felt a little perverse.
If he had had prior knowledge, Tang Wulin would have taken the necessary precautions and kept his mecha’s protective shield on at all times to cut off any external breach. However, an experienced mecha master would never turn on the protective shield as it usually consumed a lot of energy, unless the mecha master was very certain about the need for defense.
Naturally, Tang Wulin was acting as such. Just as he began to be concerned, the blazing heat had already appeared.
What should he do now?
