Chapter 959: The Dragon Core

It was not big, but it was the hub of all the golden light bands. Tang Wulin could see at a glance the hairline cracks on top of the crystal. These cracks were precisely his Golden Dragon King Seal!
It was clear as the day he first witnessed of the Golden Dragon King Seal in its true form. He could almost break the seal if only all those light bands were charging at it.
Crystal core? Could it be that this was a bloodline core that was similar to a soul core? Was it formed from the condensation of his blood essence power?
Tang Wulin was in disbelief. Actually, he was not certain if his blood essence vortex could finally be condensed into a soul core.
Facts showed that there seemed to be a regular pattern in this world. He had succeeded in condensing his blood essence power. All the pain in the world did not bother Tang Wulin in the slightest at this moment because the formation of this core had elevated his condition to a whole new level.
For the blood essence power to condense into its solid form and transformed into something akin to a soul core, it was more difficult than cultivating soul power. Tang Wulin had gradually built such a foundation by continuously elevating himself through lucky coincidences coupled with the amplification effect of the Gold Dragon King’s bloodline power.
The Velvet Skyreach Chrysanthemum had adapted to enhance his body. Since he had just absorbed such a large amount of energy, he took the final step to complete this magnificent feat that was unprecedented in history.
He named his crystal core subconsciously. Its name was the ‘Dragon Core’!
He could never have possessed such a powerful blood essence energy without the help of the Golden Dragon King’s bloodline power. Thus, he named it the ‘Dragon Core’ for the honor it deserved.
He was an entirely different person now as if he had just broken through a layer of the Golden Dragon King Seal. However, there was no doubt that the formation of the Dragon Core not only posed no threat to his health but would result in the elevation of his physique on a large scale. Tang Wulin had the confidence for the very first time to charge at the Golden Dragon King’s tenth layer seal without killing himself in the process with the presence of the Dragon Core.
It was an unprecedented fantastic event. The Dragon Core would let him strive for a long period of time to endure the Golden Dragon King Seal in the future. At the same time, the Dragon Core would also allow him to finally break through the human limit in his physique as he advanced to another level.
The so-called human limit was the strongest physical condition which a Limit Douluo could achieve. There was no doubt that Tang Wulin had already attained this level judging by the state of his internal physique.
There were many major benefits to his present situation. First, his body’s endurance was strengthened tremendously such that there were major elevations in his attack, defense, and strength.
Second and more important, there was no need to worry that his body could not withstand the charging of the soul power when he would elevate his soul power in the future. It would not be a problem for him to immediately possess the Hyper Douluo-rank soul power with his physical condition right now. His cultivation speed would only develop faster without any bottleneck to trouble him anymore.
He stood upright and patted his chest softly. Tang Wulin’s heart was beating loudly despite his torment which had just ended. He was enjoying the reward now, although he felt like he was dying just a moment ago. He had managed to endure the experience.
A faint radiance shimmered as a relieved expression appeared on Tang Wulin’s face. He pressed a button on the side of his helmet and his mask slid down allowing him to breathe in some fresh air.
At present, the deafening boom was heard in his ears once again. The battle to resist the abyssal tide continued. Tang Wulin stretched his body slightly as he sensed the potency radiating through every part of his body which made him moan aloud once again.
The spine on his back was akin to a newly awakened giant dragon. It burst out with a series of popping sounds.
Meanwhile, Jiang Wuyue sealed the breach while the rest of the soldiers followed up by plugging the gap. He had already retreated back to Tang Wulin’s side. He gave Tang Wulin’s shoulder a slap.
“You’re a courageous man, thanks to you just now. However, why did that domain of yours last for such a short while?” Tang Wulin’s Golden Dragon Rage Domain naturally disappeared when something troubled his body. However, everyone managed to seize the opportunity to momentarily block the abyssal creatures’ savage lashings.
Tang Wulin spoke with a bitter smile, “There was a little trouble with my body a moment ago. I was exhausted and I couldn’t sustain it anymore.”
“That shot delivered by your spear earlier was spot on! I didn’t expect you to injure the Black Empress severely. However, what a waste that we didn’t manage to retain her. Otherwise, you would’ve performed an exceptional and meritorious service.”
Tang Wulin spoke with a lingering fear, “The Black Empress is too scary. It’s even more powerful than the Mo Mei.”
“Hmm.” Jiang Wuyue nodded. “It’s definitely different. The earlier Black Empress is not considered the most powerful one from her clan. The most terrifying part about her was her growth potential. The Black Empress’ lineage was the strongest amongst the abyssal kings. When the abyssal creatures first appeared, the Empress originated from the Black Empress’ lineage. The Black Empress you saw today has yet to take the human form. The true, terrifying Black Empress appears no different from mankind outwardly. They’re capable of infiltrating our place using all sorts of tricks. During the earlier years, they once caused countless catastrophes to our Blood God Army. Afterward, we came up with preventive methods which had sophisticated detection devices, only then did we manage to kill a few Black Empresses such that they dare not use those tricks anymore.”
“The Black Empress is the most powerful abyssal creature capable of passing through the narrow abyssal passages to enter our side. A king can be from the Mo Mei’s lineage but their lineage has always been to help out the Black Empress’ lineage. They’re considered the Black Empress’ most powerful vassal alliance. I’m afraid that the Mo Mei will be appearing in the abyssal tide this time alongside the Black Empress. It’s going to be a tough war.”
Before Jiang Wuyue’s voice died down, a figure flew over from behind. The figure was covered in silver armor from head to toe with his wings spread out and a silver halo underneath his feet.
This was the real battle armor’s domain!
It was a three-word battle armor!
The powerful reinforcements had finally arrived.
Tang Wulin could not see the person’s face because he was wearing a mask, but he could tell from the person’s aura that he was absolutely a powerhouse.
Tang Wulin heaved a sigh of relief. With the appearance of this powerhouse who awed the entire scene, it would certainly be easier to deal with the Black Empress when it showed up.
“You should return to the barracks to rest since you’re exhausted. The Secret Service is not supposed to participate in the battle frontline anyway. Don’t worry, although you didn’t manage to kill the Black Empress earlier, your meritorious service will not go unrecorded for sure. I represent my battalion’s brothers to thank you for covering the breach and defeating the Black Empress to prevent any damage to our side.”
Tang Wulin spoke, “Sir, that’s what I’m here for. My physical condition is fine. Please let me join the battle, and I wish to be in the vanguard.”
Jiang Wuyue burst out laughing. “You’re a courageous man. From this day onward, you’re my brother.” He paused for a moment before he lowered his voice and spoke, “The condition is that you don’t fight me for Yuxue. If not, we can only be brothers on the battlefield but remain enemies, otherwise.
Tang Wulin could not help feeling a little helpless and said, “I truly have a girlfriend already.”
Jiang Wuyue laughed aloud. “That’s for the best then. Since you wish to go forward, then we shall go together. There’s no need for me to lead anymore now that the Blood Gods are here. Go.”
Tang Wulin and Jiang Wuyue ran forward together. While they were running, Tang Wulin asked, “What’s a Blood God?”
Jiang Wuyue answered, “It’s the most powerful section in our Blood God Army. It’s where our name comes from. There’s a total of nine Blood Gods in our army. All of them have Title Douluo’s cultivation bases, and they’re all three-word battle armor masters. In addition to the regimental commander, two deputy commanders, and two divisional commanders, we have a total of fourteen who are Title Douluo-rank, three-word battle armor masters.”
