Chapter 1077: Domineering Beyond Comparison
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Jade King’s body was immediately blasted away by the Strength King’s domineering punch. A Ruheng’s body swayed and caught up to Jade King in the air. His speed was simply akin to teleportation. His hands abruptly grabbed Jade King’s shoulders and carried along his body as they spun down from the sky like a spin top. He smashed Jade King ferociously against the ground as the golden striations on his body crept onto Jade King’s body. A series of loud booms exploded and shook the competition stage violently.
Tang Wulin stared at the scene in bewilderment. Even though his estimation of his senior disciple brother was already very high, he had never expected that A Ruheng could be powerful to this extent.
He had watched some of his senior disciple brother’s competitions before this one. A Ruheng was genuinely very powerful, but Tang Wulin had never seen him use power to this extent! There was no doubt that A Ruheng held himself back earlier. Today, on the other hand, was truly a massive outburst of Body Sect’s Innate Secret Technique accompanied by the appearance of that strong heartbeat!
Tang Wulin had a shocked expression on his face. Jade King had lost in the most unjust manner. He was certain that Jade King had also studied A Ruheng’s previous competitions before this match, yet his estimation of A Ruheng’s ability was proved to be wrong. ‘The series of outbursts earlier was supposed to be Body Secret Technique’s second awakening?’
‘No, that wasn’t right. It was already his second awakening when his body swelled up exponentially in the beginning.’ Tang Wulin could tell that so the Jade King should be able to tell that too. ‘Then, what was going on with that strong heartbeat sound of his in the end?’
‘Could it be that… that was the body martial soul’s third awakening? Was that the third awakening that was unprecedented in history? Yes, that must be it.’
It could be said that amongst all the audiences Tang Wulin was definitely the person who understood Body Secret Technique the most. Thus, he could sense the transformation of Body Sect’s abilities in the most distinctive manner. No wonder Jade King was tricked. He would have never expected such ability to come from A Ruheng.
The unexpected outburst was not only capable of turning Jade King’s attack into useless effort but it could even burst out with an exceedingly terrifying fighting ability within a short period of time.
Even if Tang Wulin was obviously already aware of an outburst of such extent, was he capable of blocking it?
Tang Wulin inhaled a deep breath as there was no way he could give an answer with certainty in his heart! This senior brother of his truly deserved to be his teacher’s great hope!
However, Tang Wulin felt as his chest burning hot at present as he became more aware of the situation. Only an opponent that was powerful enough could stimulate his potential even more and allow him to benefit even more from the competition!
The competition in the arena had already ended. Even though Jade King’s defense was exceedingly strong as well when he fell behind from the attack, A Ruheng did not give Jade King any opportunity to turn the tables. He unleashed a series of exceedingly powerful outbursts to completely defeat Jade King, thereby ended the competition.
Jade King had lost because of his lack of understanding about A Ruheng. However, Tang Wulin did not look down upon him because of this. Jade King’s future was not that simple as he was reputed to have the most powerful martial soul and ranked first in the betting odds of this year’s competition! Perhaps, Tang Wulin might even have the opportunity to fight against him someday.
Tang Wulin watched the recording for a total of three times. He felt as if a volcano had erupted inside him every time he watched the part where A Ruheng began to have the outburst. The strong heartbeat signified that A Ruheng had already cultivated the Body Secret Technique to his heart. He was worthy of the title of Innate Secret Technique!
All of a sudden, Tang Wulin had an idea. By pondering about A Ruheng, he thought of something for himself. ‘What if he could cultivate this Innate Secret Technique himself? Could he even better withstand the process of breaking the next Golden Dragon King Seal when his cultivation had succeeded?’
The Innate Secret Technique required a large quantity of heaven and earth treasures for one’s cultivation and elevation but he had no need of that! Tang Wulin was only bothered by how overly massive the energy contained in the Golden Dragon King Seal was that it resulted in his body’s inability to withstand that.
Later on, he would ask his teacher whether he was willing to pass down this Innate Secret Technique to himself. Even if he could not succeed at the cultivation of the technique, it would at least be an effective confirmation for him to refine his body in the future.
Tang Wulin felt even more thankful to the Golden Dragon King’s eighteen seals in his heart. After all, it would have been difficult for him to achieve such cultivation base at a young age without them. However, these eighteen seals would cause an extremely great threat to himself in the future. According to the situation at present, there was no need for him to worry about the seals at least within three years, but how about three years later?
His main focus now was to speed up his cultivation but more importantly, he would need to continue increasing his body’s endurance. His accumulation was already abundant after his breakthrough to the tenth layer seal but he still had to withstand such intense agony. Could his accumulation be as much as the previous occasion when he broke the following layer of the seal? It seemed like a difficult thing to do at the present moment.
Thus, it was important for him to look for more cultivation methods for his body right now, or for heaven and earth treasures that were especially effective at elevating his body’s strength.
Star Dou Battle Network made an official announcement to close its access temporarily for three days to perform internal maintenance so that the system could withstand the Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge’s finals.
There was no doubt that those two rounds of semifinals that were supposed to be very lucrative to the organizer became a lost cause in the end. This was precisely due to the lack of the system’s endurance capability. In reality, the Star Dou Cabin’s endurance had some issues too. Tang Wulin could already sense that some of the devices inside the cabin were overheated when he left Star Dou Cabin the last time.
He was going to face the most powerful opponent in the final round of the competition. He would certainly spare no effort in doing so. If there was a problem with Star Dou Battle Network’s endurance capability, then that would truly become a joke to the entire Star Dou Battle Network’s popularity and cause a devastating blow to the network.
Thus, the federal government carried out maintenance rapidly. It was for two purposes. One was aimed at upgrading the Star Dou Battle Network for a short time and spared no effort in ensuring the success of the final competition. The other purpose was to investigate the reason that caused such an issue through detailed analysis by the experts. The federation once again emphasized that this was not the battle network’s problem but the contestant’s overly powerful abilities. Even though the contestants were still two-word battle armor masters, their cultivation bases had already exceeded ordinary two-word battle armor masters and were even exceeding ordinary three-word battle armor masters.
One could see an example of this situation from the second round of semifinals, where the victory and loss between Jade King and Strength King were determined. Despite the fact that both of them were not clad in battle armors, the battle resulted in a high rate of fatalities amongst the audiences.
That’s right! The Jade King did not even manage to don his two-word battle armor in time during the competition before he was killed by A Ruheng’s continuous outburst of attacks.
Tang Wulin received a brand new Star Dou Cabin sent by the federation to Blood God Army one day before the finals. As compared to the earlier Star Dou Cabin, the volume of this Star Dou Cabin was three times bigger than before. It appeared even more intricate and sturdier.
There was no doubt that the federation could not popularize a Star Dou Cabin of this size. However, the federal government had no choice but to send over such a sturdy Star Dou Cabin in order to ensure that the final competition was carried out smoothly and allowed Tang Wulin to safely take part in the latter competition.
“You’re about to enter the finals, how do you feel?” Blood One asked to Tang Wulin who had just completed a preliminary test to the new Star Dou Cabin.
“How do I feel?” Tang Wulin said, ” I guess I am continuously becoming more powerful due to the competition. The effect on me would have been even better if this were real competition, but Star Dou Battle Network allows us to fight unscrupulously. I can’t help saying that this is genuinely an epoch-making technological advancement that should be popularized widely.”
Blood One nodded. “The federation has already made the decision to popularize Star Dou Battle Network. The battle network and aerospace technology at present will be the main direction of federation’s technological research in the future.”
Tang Wulin’s chest tightened. “Aerospace technology huh? Do you know how far along they are now?”
Blood One spoke, “they have had some breakthroughs but a long period of time is still needed in order to develop crucial skills. Most importantly, the lack of resources on the continent now is having a very negative impact on continuing the research. So…”
At this point, Blood One paused while Tang Wulin frowned. Yes, after so many years of development, a lot of Douluo Continent’s mineral resources were already becoming more and more scarce.
Whether it was mecha, battle armor or soul technology, all of these required a large number of resources to act as a foundation in order to ensure continuous development and research.
However, the resources on the continent were after all still limited. After mankind’s continuous development and exploitation for so many years, they were already becoming more and more depleted.
Mankind’s technology now was still far from being sufficient to allow mankind to explore outer space and search for new resources. Thus, they could only search within the planet itself.
Actually, due to its powerful military forces, the Douluo Federation had already thought of making a move on Dou Spirit Continent and Star Luo Continent. It was just that the situations with these two continents were rather special, so within a short period of time, the federation still refused to make a move rashly. Thus, they could only wait slowly.
On the other hand, following the announcement of Star Dou Battle Network the federation had made another major technological advancement. No one could tell when the great war would begin.
