Tang Wulin felt as the life energy in the surroundings surged with a thickness that was several times greater compared to the part of Sea God’s Island where he stayed. The thick life source made him breathe deeply as he sensed his soul power flowing with an indescribably comfortable sensation throughout his entire body. His Bluesilver Emperor martial soul was even gently radiating with excitement.
Yun Ming explained to Tang Wulin, “This is Sea God Pavilion. It was built to support this giant tree, and it’s also the center of the entirety of Shrek. The giant tree is named the Gold Tree. It has protected Shrek all along for twenty thousand years, guarding us every time Shrek is facing an enormous crisis. It also always brings us knowledge and points us in the right direction whenever an outstanding talent appears. Elder Gold, who you’ve met earlier, is actually the Gold Tree’s spirit. Even we are not fated to meet the true guardian of Shrek. We don’t know what Elder Gold did to you, but we can sense that the Gold Tree’s energy dropped by thirty percent. It’s also the first time we’ve witnessed all the vegetation on Sea God’s Island turn gold since the existence of this place.”
At this point, Yun Ming paused for a moment before he continued speaking, “I can also tell you this. In the beginning, after the real leader of the first generation Shrek Seven Monster Thousand Hands Douluo Tang San cultivated into godhood, he built the Sea God’s Island before he left Douluo Continent and headed to the Divine Realm. It was also he who personally grafted the ancient Gold Tree to this place. So you should understand by now why we affirm that his bloodline flows in your body.”
Tang Wulin stared in bewilderment as he listened to Yun Ming’s explanation of all these. Even he could not help feeling puzzled in his heart if his martial soul was truly related to the first ancestor of Tang Sect, Tang San? Yet the first ancestor Tang San had been the almighty that dominated the world twenty thousand years ago! How was that possible?
Zhuo Shi chuckled and spoke, “Whether it’s the ancestor’s bloodline or not, at least it’s a good thing. Elder Gold made his move so it’s naturally a great help to Tang Wulin.”
“Good thing?” Yun Ming darted Zhuo Shi a look. “Of course it’s a good thing to this boy here. However, do you know how many years will it take for the ancient Gold Tree to accumulate thirty percent more energy? Three thousand years! It’s going to take a whole three thousand years. On the other hand, thirty percent energy is even capable of withstanding a fatal catastrophe for Shrek Academy. Thus, it’s a great loss for the academy. It’s simply too hard to count the numbers.”
“Err…” Tang Wulin forced a smile as he looked at Yun Ming with an extremely solemn expression. “But I don’t know how to return this portion of energy!”
Yun Ming spoke, “Unleash your Bluesilver Emperor martial soul for us to take a look.”
Tang Wulin dared not procrastinate as he hastily urged his soul power to trigger the release of his Bluesilver Emperor martial soul.
Thick vine-like blue-gold blades surged out as soul rings ascended from underneath his feet. Three purple and one black soul ring arose first.
However, a peculiar scene appeared. An enormous blue-gold phantom shadow slowly emerged. It was the Bluesilver Emperor who once appeared when Tang Wulin’s martial soul was evolving back in the beginning.
Soon after, another phantom shadow glowed by the side of Bluesilver Emperor. It was a giant tree glimmering with a dazzling golden color, like a small version of the Gold Tree.
Just as these two shadows appeared, Tang Wulin could feel as the soul power in his body surged wildly, while all the Bluesilver Emperor vines unleashed were shaking violently. Its color began to undergo a peculiar change. From the original blue-gold it began shimmering with blue and golden alternately.
To everyone’s surprise, the two phantom shadows slowly approached each other and then fused into one. The Bluesilver Emperor’s thick vines and Gold Tree’s branches blended into one another. A peculiar green-gold color was produced when the blue and gold combined. Thick life source burst out following that. Even the surrounding Title Douluos could clearly sense as the thick life source burst out and infused into their bodies.
Light Dark Douluo could sense this most profoundly because she was the eldest amongst all the Title Douluos. Just as she had mentioned earlier, she did not have much time left. However, at this exact moment, she had a clear sense that her already almost wilted life source seemed to be infused with new vitality once again. Her life fluctuation began to slowly grow stronger even by just a little. It was the elevation of her life source but not an instant increase in vitality. The biggest difference between the former and latter was that the elevation of the former could be retained for eternity while the latter would only last for a moment before dissipating.
The two phantom shadows completely merged with each other at last. A peculiar scene emerged as the Bluesilver Emperor and the Gold Tree vanished. In their place was a green-gold shadow of a human figure. The figure was slightly blurry, but the general physical features were exactly the same as Tang Wulin. It floated in the air behind his back and formed into a colossal halo with a diameter of ten meters. Its arms were spread out from the sides of its body as if it was attempting to hug the entire world.
“Is that the Variant Soul Skill? Or Variant Martial Soul?” Even the Sea God Pavilion Master Yun Ming had no way to completely determine what the scene before his eyes meant.
On the other hand, the green-gold figure behind Tang Wulin’s body swayed its body once and transformed into a green-gold halo that descended from the sky and looped around Tang Wulin’s body. It dropped above the black soul ring and then became Tang Wulin’s fifth soul ring.
The shadow vanished and Tang Wulin’s Bluesilver Emperor vines calmed down as well. They turned into blue-gold once again and appeared no different from before. Only that there was a crystal clear translucent green-gold soul ring on Tang Wulin’s body. It was filled with life source, and it seemed just like a solid form.
Yun Ming and the group of Title Douluos widened their eyes in surprise. Light Dark Douluo spoke in astonishment, “Ten years of life. That infusion of vitality earlier extended my life by at least ten years.”
It was like that for her and of course for the rest of the Title Douluos.
Ten years of life! This was something that could never be exchanged with money. Moreover, Light Dark Douluo was already old and ailing like a candle guttering in the wind so she could determine her gains right away. On the other hand, the other Title Douluos still had much vitality so upon receiving this infusion of refreshing yet thick life source, they would only receive even greater gains after the overall adjustment of their bodies.
However, they did not care about sensing the life energy change in their bodies at that moment. They were even more shocked at witnessing the green-gold soul ring before their eyes.
Ordinary soul ring colors were white, yellow, purple, black and red. This was the foundation of soul ring colors that had been passed down for millennia. Each color separately represented ten years, one hundred years, one thousand years, ten thousand years and one hundred thousand years. It was only ten thousand years ago Spirit Ice Douluo Huo Yuhao suddenly came into the world and created the spirit soul system. A spirit soul with a cultivation base of over one hundred thousand years could possibly form a golden-orange soul ring and thereby produce a brand-new generation of soul rings.
Yet the green-gold soul ring before their eyes was absolutely unprecedented. Moreover, these Title Douluos could confirm that a green-gold soul ring had never appeared before in the history of humanity. This was the so-called a record that had never been approached and would never be approached. Tang Wulin managed to do this.
On the other hand, the only previous creator of a brand-new soul ring color was the almighty Holy Ice Douluo Huo Yuhuo, who had dominated the world!
“Try out your fifth soul skill,” Yun Ming spoke with a deep voice.
In the soul master’s world, it was extremely taboo for one to probe another person’s soul skill. However, this was obviously a different situation here, as everyone on the scene were Tang Wulin’s teachers and seniors. It would not be much of a problem for them to wish to see his soul skill.
Tang Wulin hastily nodded as he moved his thoughts and urged his soul power to infuse into his fifth soul ring.
At once, the green-gold soul ring glowed brightly as Tang Wulin could only sense that the soul power in his body surged into the soul ring like a swarm of bees. His entire body was illuminated by the green-gold light of the soul ring.
Then there was nothing…
Tang Wulin’s soul power weakened rapidly. It had only taken a few breaths before his soul power had depleted completely. His soul power was drained by that green-gold soul ring like a whale sucking on seawater.
Tang Wulin’s body swayed unstably. Fortunately, his bloodline power was strong enough that he did not topple over.
“Where’s the soul skill?” Zhuo Shi asked.
Tang Wulin’s face was filled with confusion. “I-I don’t know either! I was only feeling that all my soul power was sucked away, then there was no change at all…”
The group’s expressions immediately turned peculiar.
Such a situation was similarly unprecedented. The soul power consumption of a soul master’s soul skill differed according to different ranks, yet there was never a case where the soul master could not urge his soul skill or had all his soul power sucked away.
Yun Ming raised his hand and pressed onto Tang Wulin’s shoulder so he could sense the change in his body even more accurately. Tang Wulin was right that his soul power was completely sucked away such that not even an ounce was left.
Another ordinary soul master in his place would immediately faint due to soul power exhaustion or at least could not stand upright, yet Tang Wulin relied on his strong physical qualities to remain unaffected.
