Chapter 609: The Second Piece of Battle Armor
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Gu Yue’s true power was still a mystery within Tang Wulin’s heart because he had never seen her devote her all into combat before this.
She told him the other day that her spiritual power had already breached the Spirit Abyss level and Tang Wulin actually believed her. Gu Yue had always had this quality to her that attracted him to her. When he looked at her, it felt as if he was gazing into a dense fog.
Suddenly, a speck of starlight began to glow in Ye Xinglan’s hand before it took flight and supported the battle armor, rising slowly into the air.
Aside from the most important battle armor core on her chest, her battle armor was more or less complete. Ye Xinglan’s presence at this moment could only be described as a God descending from the heavens. Her entire being was as vast as the entire galaxy at this moment.
Sparkling starlight gleamed from her battle armor as her Stargod Sword burst with a piercing radiance, illuminating every possible part in the room.
Then, streams of starlight swept past them and fell upon a piece of battle armor, penetrating the engraved soul circuits, carving and linking them to one another.
The mysteries of the soul circuits were one of the most important research topics to a mecha craftsman. The difficulty level would increase proportionately to the complexity of the soul circuit.
The one-word battle armor designs from Gu Yue were all specifically tailored for her companions, even Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin could even feel the bloodline in his body bringing out his battle armor as exquisite patterns appeared on the battle armor.
It was clear to Tang Wulin that Ye Xinglan was now much steadier than when she was making his first piece of battle armor. Her soul power had already condensed and was not dissipating so even if she was continuously consuming her soul power, it was controlled to such perfection that not even a single ounce was wasted. He could sense her soul power remaining stable under the powerful recovery capabilities of her battle armor.
She had truly improved by leaps and bounds so Tang Wulin would have to train just as hard.
As time passed, golden lights continued lighting up on the battle armor before they gathered toward the rerebrace. It was different from the three sharp knives present on the forearm piece of his battle armor. The rerebrace seemed much more pleasant. It had complicated patterns along with a pauldron that protruded outward, dividing into three separate but overlapping layers that appeared unusually dense and thick with scales covering its outermost layer.
Tang Wulin wild combat style was purely from the Strength System, and the design of the pauldron was to allow him to collide with the enemy in a more effective manner. The three overlapping layers of the pauldron in addition to his already terrifying strength would result in massive destruction if he were to collide with his opponent’s body.
Tang Wulin could sense the profound but faint pattern of dragons emerging on the surface of the pauldron. Crest lines protruded from the diamond-shaped scales on the surface of the battle armor. These were the exact same scales that would appear when he released his Golden Dragon Body.
“Get ready!” Ye Xinglan’s shout awakened Tang Wulin from his dazed state, refreshing his spirit as he watched her attentively.
Specks of starlight gathered and illuminated the cores of the soul circuits before a dazzling radiance penetrated the room. Suddenly, an intense energy fluctuation burst out as Tang Wulin took a step forward to arrive before the battle armor.
He touched his hands against his shoulder and arm in succession and pierced his skin until two spurts of fresh blood appeared and splashed onto the battle armor.
It was then that the initial golden splendor from the battle armor immediately turned into a scarlet shade. Tang Wulin mobilized his blood essence and soul power swiftly and with the guidance of his right hand, he released his vambrace along with starlight that simultaneously emanated from the back of his hand.
The soul circuits were coordinating with one another. With a hum, the pauldron soared high into the air and headed directly toward his shoulder.
Tang Wulin’s bloodstained shoulders readied themselves as they perfectly fused with the pauldron and rerebrace. The armor retracted, wrapped around, and rolled upward, linking the front portion to the vambrace to instantly complete the seal.
By infusing his soul power into the battle armor in a frenzy, the bloodline energy in Tang Wulin flared up. He was the one who had forged these metals so the bloodline connection spontaneously occurred, resulting in the frenzied infusion of his soul power into the battle armor to complete each nodal point.
As the scales lit up one after the other, Tang Wulin’s aura began growing with the battle armor. His aura was continuously growing denser.
Ye Xinglan did not even the slightest shred of respect for Tang Wulin when the first met. As a student of Shrek Academy, she had always been arrogant.
However, Tang Wulin’s tenacious fortitude left a profound impression on her following their frequent encounters. This was especially so for his quality for not even having the slightest hesitation when it came to protecting his companions. It had been completely seared into her mind.
Such a companion and team member had earned him the worthy position of having her trust so she could leave her juniors in his capable hands.
The golden light gradually vanished as Tang Wulin moved his arm about with his face filled with joy. He could clearly sense the explosive energy contained within his arm and spread his Golden Dragon Claws appeared. Along with his armor, the Golden Dragon Claw combined perfectly to give him the appearance of a fearsome killing machine. He did not even need to bring out his soul power when his Golden Dragon Claw alone had appeared with three inches of golden light surrounding it.
The sharpness of the Golden Dragon Claws was the reason for his success against Ling Wuxie today. Ling Wuxie’s battle armor was severely damaged due to his Golden Dragon Claws and its unique ability, Smash.
Tang Wulin looked at his left hand, noticing that his right arm, shoulders, and chest were already covered in the Golden Dragon King scales when he released his blood essence earlier following his breakthrough of the Golden Dragon King seal. If he were to achieve another breakthrough later on, the scales would probably completely cover his left hand, causing the Golden Dragon Claw to appear on his right hand as well.
With two Golden Dragon Claws, he would definitely achieve a leap in his power.
He already had the ability to break through the fifth seal but he was not in a hurry in a bid to have more time for himself.
At this moment, his thirst for more power had re-emerged once again following the addition of his new battle armor. He had almost lost control and wanted to return immediately to break through the seal.
“How does it feel?” Ye Xinglan asked.
Tang Wulin was not stingy when it came to compliments. “It’s awesome. This is simply perfect.”
The starlight vanished as his battle armor fused with his body before sinking into his arm along with his bloodline energy. This, was the most powerful feature of spirit alloy one-word battle armor. If he wanted to continue forging second-word battle armor in the future, he would only need to continually refine and perfect his current foundation. To top it off, he would have no need to store his battle armor in a soul storage device since he was able to fuse it with his body to be able to release it in a shorter timespan.
“Thank you, Xinglan. I’m going back to my room now,” Tang Wulin spoke.
Ye Xinglan asked, “Wulin, is Gu Yue alright?”
Tang Wulin was stunned for a moment before he looked toward Xinglan. “Did you notice anything?”
Ye Xinglan frowned slightly and said, “She hasn’t been in a good mood for quite some time. I often find her in a daze by herself, not knowing what’s on her mind. I think it’s possible that she’s going through some mood changes because she joined the Spirit Pagoda in the beginning, resulting in her ineligibility of becoming one of the Shrek Seven Monsters in the future. Spend more time with her, we can all tell that she treats you differently.”
“Hmm. Tang Wulin nodded before sighing softly. “I don’t know what’s going on with her either. However, she promised me that she’ll join us in the inner court. So what if it’s the Spirit Pagoda? We’ll be graduating in the future after all, and we’ll always remember our friendship no matter where we are. We’ll always remember the process of us growing up and it’s fine! The current soul technology is so advanced so we can always see each other no matter where we are. Don’t worry, I’ll talk to her more to ease her mind.”
“Alright then.” Ye Xinglan nodded. “How about you? What are your plans in the future? Will you be staying in Shrek Academy?”
