The group stood staring at one another while Xu Xiaoyan screamed out in surprise. “Oh my god! Big brother, please bring us along if you’re going to elevate your power on a large scale the next time! Saint Craftsman and soul forging? Does that mean you can now forge three-word battle armors for us?”
Tang Wulin smiled and spoke, “There’s still some deficiency. After all, I’ve just achieved this level, so I’ll need some time to perfect my skills. Moreover, you can’t use it even if I’m capable of forging one for you. Without the foundation of a seven-ring cultivation base and martial soul, we can’t possibly use the battle armor made from soul-forged metal. We shouldn’t reach beyond our grasp, so it’s better for us to complete our two-word battle armors. However, with soul forging as our inner secret, I intend to complete fuse forging with at least four types of metals when I’m forging the two-word battle armors for all of you. So, our battle armors will always be above the standards of our peers. The two-word battle armor will not only have wings but it’ll also be capable of curing a soul skill that won’t be restricted by the martial soul. All of you will need to consider properly. It’s best for the soul skill to be something all of us can agree on to portray ourselves.”
The so-called cured soul skill was the process of curing a soul skill through the battle armor’s special core circuit. The soul skill’s power would be related to a soul master’s cultivation base and his or her battle armor. Naturally, additional cured soul skills could be added to the three-word battle armor later on.
For example, Tang Wulin’s soul skill could be cured onto Xie Xie’s battle armor. This would require the soul masters who possess the soul skills to work closely together.
“Big brother, I’m going to cure that claw skill of yours earlier,” Xie Xie immediately spoke without the slightest hesitation.
Tang Wulin laughed to himself. “You wish. Let’s put aside the fact it’s my bloodline soul skill, but we don’t even know if we can cure it at present. Even if we can, you don’t have the amplification of my strength and the Golden Dragon Dreadclaw. Hence, it’s not suitable for you. Only Yuanen’s strength is strong enough to employ most of my Golden Dragon Nirvana Claw’s power among all of you, so Yuanen can consider that. Of course, we’ll still need to try out if you can use my bloodline soul skill during the curing process.”
Tang Wulin continued speaking, “I think there’s still a chance. Moreover, the more types of spirit alloys are used, the higher is the battle armor’s bearing capacity. It’s also possible for us to cure some of our teacher’s soul skills. We can choose anything that’s below a seven-ring, but it’s best if the soul skill can fuse perfectly with our own abilities in order to achieve the best amplification result.”
The two-word battle armor and one-word battle armor were two completely different concepts. Strictly speaking, one could only be considered a true battle armor master after one possessed a two-word battle armor. Of course, Tang Wulin and his comrades’ spirit alloy one-word battle armors were the exceptions.
At present, Yue Zhengyu and Yuanen Yehui had already broken through to six rings, so they were completely qualified for the two-word battle armor’s foundation while the rest were at the same soul power level.
Xu Lizhi was especially excited because if he were to own his own two-word battle armor, he would only need to cure a useful attack-type soul skill to make a qualitative leap in his power. Then, he could finally fight.
“Alright, let’s fight once more. Devote all your efforts into this. Only then can I determine what your battle armor needs the most,” Tang Wulin spoke as he smiled.
Even though it was not a suitable time for them to use the soul forged battle armor, Tang Wulin was confident in completing the spirit alloy forging with four or even five types of metals with soul forging as their inner secret. Of course, he would still need to consider the characteristics of the chosen soul skill which everyone wished to cure into their battle armors during the spirit alloy forging process.
This was the benefit of having a talented blacksmith on their team when it came to making battle armors. A blacksmith’s role was crucial when it came to the later part of the process.
It would be a very difficult task to complete soul forging if it was done by an ordinary blacksmith. As it was, soul forging was already adequate for a two-word battle armor. Yet, one could imagine how good the battle armor’s bearing capacity would be with the soul skill. Many two-word battle armors could not be cured with the battle armor soul skill due to the battle armor’s inferior quality.
Zhen Hua was well-known all over the continent for his craft. He gained the continent’s respect because a perfect four-word battle armor would require a Saint Craftsman’s full dedication. It was especially so during the later stages of making the battle armor.
If Tang Wulin were to spread the news that he was already a Saint Craftsman, it would be easy for him to make money in Shrek Academy.
Feng Wuyu was a Title Douluo but he was not an easy person to deal with. However, he was still young, so the soul masters were willing to work together with him.
Xie Xie moved swiftly and stood by Tang Wulin’s side. He was slightly worried about having to fight against his five other comrades. He spoke softly, “Big brother, can we really do it? My battle armor has yet to heal completely. I’m afraid I won’t be much help to you!”
Tang Wulin gave him an unpleasant look. “Can you stop being such a loser? Yuanen is looking at you.”
Xie Xie sniggered. “I’m confident with your presence! Big brother, let’s have a taste of being defeated.”
Yue Zhengyu raised his brows. “It’s too early to tell who’s going to be defeated.”
Both parties fell back. The battle of two against five. There was a great disparity between the two parties.
Yuanen Yehui, Ye Xinglan, and Yue Zhengyu stood in front while Xu Xiaoyan and Xu Lizhi were behind. All five of them donned their battle armors without the slightest hesitation.
Tang Wulin did not don his battle armor at all. His expression turned serious as he faced his five comrades. This battle would not be as relaxed as the previous ones.
Xu Lizhi had begun chanting incantations and producing his buns which were the Bloodthirst Bean Buns, the Puncture Pork Buns, and the Firm Crystal Buns. It seemed like he was making the buns for everyone.
Tang Wulin shouted aloud, “Begin!” He could not afford to wait for Xu Lizhi to finish preparing all the buns. Otherwise, he and Xie Xie would not stand a chance.
Tang Wulin’s body moved in a flash and had taken the lead to run ahead. Xie Xie similarly moved swiftly and vanished behind his back.
Tang Wulin could sense that there was a gush of penetrating energy growing behind him at present. Was that the momentum accumulating force? Xie Xie’s loss earlier was due to his bloodline!
Xie Xie had not slowed down ever since he got together with Yuanen. Actually, his fighting capacity was not as weak as he appeared today.
As Tang Wulin’s fighting partner, Xie Xie felt completely different from the situation when he confronted Tang Wulin earlier because Tang Wulin was no longer the enemy. He could feel the bloodline fluctuation radiating from Tang Wulin’s body stimulating his bloodline. The process of mobilizing the momentum accumulating force was faster than usual.
Even though his bloodline power was incapable of directly increasing his overall power, his bloodline was vigorous enough that it allowed him to channel a hundred and twenty percent of his usual power.
This was the disparity. Not to mention the fact that Tang Wulin could also enhance their abilities simultaneously.
Even when confronting five people, Tang Wulin was indomitable. He was akin to a giant dragon that was baring its fangs at the enemy.
Just then, a ring of radiance suddenly appeared on the path ahead which they had to pass through. Tang Wulin was surprised as his body shifted horizontally so that he could change his position in a brief moment.
The Starwheel Shackles were silent. He would have been bound by the Starwheel Shackles if he had slowed down even a bit. The Starwheel Shackles had an immobilizing effect that his momentum would be decreased immediately. Even so, Tang Wulin’s swift momentum was weakened due to his evasive moves.
Yuanen Yehui stuffed a Bloodthirst Bean Bun into her mouth as she took the lead to approach them. The Saint Sword in Yue Zhengyu’s hands condensed once again. He raised the Saint Sword high as the Light of Judgement descended from the sky to stab at Tang Wulin.
In the match of five against two, they had the upper hand so their fighting methods were naturally different from before.
Yuanen Yehui was not done after consuming one Bloodthirst Bean Bun. She turned over her hand and caught the Firm Crystal Bun which Xu Lizhi tossed over using the Tang Sect Hidden Weapon technique. She stuffed it into her mouth as a layer of crystal-like gloss shone on her body and immediately reinforced her defense.
The Star Chains were released and connected the five of them together as one.
The corners of Tang Wulin’s lips twitched once. It was truly different with the addition of Xu Xiaoyan and Xu Lizhi. He had absolute confidence that he would win in the match of two against three, but not in the match of two against five.
Smilingly, Xu Xiaoyan unleashed the Star Chains. Then, she pointed at Tang Wulin as he dodged subconsciously, yet nothing happened this time.
Xu Xiaoyan stuck out her tongue at him with a sweet smile on her face.
Tang Wulin squinted his eyes. Suddenly, his right foot stepped forward while his right arm extended backward. Soon after, the Golden Dragon Spear transformed into a bolt of golden lightning shooting straight at Xu Xiaoyan.
Tang Wulin’s strength could only be described as ‘terrifying’ with the amplification of his battle armor and Golden Dragon Body. The Golden Dragon Spear was equipped with such a terrifying destructive force. When it was hurled as a spear, even a seven-ring Soul Sage would need to be cautious.
