Chapter 961: Isn’t He Tired?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Tang Wulin stood side by side with Jiang Wuyue. They acted as the arrowhead of the close combat battalion to hold out against the most powerful abyssal creatures. They attacked and killed four Ba Ans consecutively and forced them back to the passage entrance.
Tang Wulin was highly motivated by all the killing. Grey-black airflows were continuously absorbed into the Golden Dragon Spear as there was a great number of dead abyssal creatures in the surroundings.
He could feel the most obvious change in his body when he killed a Ba An that his Dragon Core was beginning to glisten after absorbing a massive amount of energy.
If the energy that could be absorbed by Tang Wulin’s blood essence vortex, after being filtered by the Golden Dragon Spear, was a hundred percent initially, then the energy absorbed by Tang Wulin’s Dragon Core would now be at one percent. The energy would be condensed into its essence for his consumption.
Although the proportion was actually much lower, Tang Wulin obviously felt that his Dragon Core was growing by itself.
It might be slow but the energy essence that was condensed a hundredfold would make it enlarge gradually.
Tang Wulin enjoyed the battlefield. Despite the fact that he was almost killed by the Abyss King earlier, he was not afraid because the Blood Gods were guarding them from above. He still had a fighting chance even if the abyssal creatures such as the Mo Mei and the Black Empress were here.
The Golden Dragon Rage Domain was also capable of inspiring the soldiers to fight at the same time. The close combat battalion’s soldiers fought like an ambush of wild tigers and managed to completely suppress the abyssal creatures as a result of their exponential increase in power.
“Boy, aren’t you tired?” Jiang Wuyue asked Tang Wulin after he blasted away an abyssal creature with his hammer.
The Golden Dragon Rage Domain had been active for over forty minutes, but Tang Wulin’s courage mounted as the battle progressed.
Jiang Wuyue depended on his pair of hammers to extend his killing range, so he managed to kill far more abyssal creatures than Tang Wulin. However, as Jiang Wuyue’s soul power and physical strength reduced, there was a change in his position with respect to Tang Wulin’s.
Tang Wulin was walking in front while he was behind at present. No enemy could put up a fight wherever Tang Wulin’s Golden Dragon Spear was. He was akin to an invincible general. The abyssal creatures fell unceasingly from the shimmer of his golden radiance.
Jiang Wuyue was speechless to find that he was feeling a little lethargic after such a long battle despite his impressive fitness. On the other hand, Tang Wulin’s aura had not weakened at all. On the contrary, a layer of misty golden gloss was emitted from his body while he grew more courageous as the battle progressed.
“I’m still okay and I should be able to sustain the domain for a period of time still. These abyssal creatures appear to be endless! However, it seems like they are not as strong as before,” Tang Wulin spoke as he fought on. The Golden Dragon Roar was most effective when used on a battlefield. The shock it delivered controlled the abyssal creatures over a large distance. These abyssal creatures would then be struck by the destructive attacks.
Tang Wulin stood at the forefront, so he absorbed the most energy not only from the creatures he killed but also the ones killed by his comrades. A stream of the golden spear’s radiance spurted over thirty meters from the tip of his Golden Dragon Spear.
He had never condoned any massacre in such an indulgent manner before. There had been no opportunity for him when he was on the continent. However, he could now finally unleash the pain that had been suppressed in his heart when Shrek Academy was previously destroyed in a massacre.
Jiang Wuyue followed closely with clenched teeth. They had fought non-stop for almost twenty minutes.
An order was despatched from behind for them to fall back. The 2nd Iron Blood Battalion had already arrived.
The soldiers were fatigued, so they would need to be rested and regrouped to prevent unnecessary fatalities.
“Sir, I wish to fight for a little while more!” Tang Wulin retracted his Golden Dragon Rage Domain. Although the domain consumed a lot of energy from him, he could replenish the energy at an even faster rate! Nevertheless, he would need to rest and regroup after using the domain for a prolonged period since the domain not only consumed his bloodline power but also his spiritual power. It seemed like he could not sustain his spiritual power any longer.
“Sure, then you shall fight for a little while more. I’ll inform the 2nd battalion commander. Boy, you’re a monster!”
Jiang Wuyue brought his battalion of soldiers into retreat, leaving Tang Wulin behind to hold out at the forefront. The Golden Dragon Spear in Tang Wulin’s hand projected streams of remnant shadows as it moved swiftly. The 2nd Close Combat Battalion had a smooth takeover from the 1st Close Combat Battalion. Tang Wulin felt the stress of fighting the battle lighten as soon as the new batch of soldiers came in.
A golden light flashed once as he unleashed the Golden Dragon Rage Domain once again!
His spiritual power was slightly restored after the momentary respite earlier. He relied on his Golden Dragon Spear’s assistance, so he did not bother with his soul power and blood essence at all.
The domain’s effect was crucial in the group battle. The soldiers from the 2nd Battalion immediately felt their strengths defy the heavens as soon as they charged into the domain.
The abyssal creatures were suppressed such that there was utterly no way they could get into battle formation. They could not even charge out of the cave due to the intensive long-range attacks.
Tang Wulin had been at the forefront with the other close combat soldiers offering him assistance at his flanks. His fighting capacity was the best in the entire scene. He refused to back down and relied on his superb physical endurance as well as his attack and defense abilities.
Jiang Wuyue had already retreated to the back at present. He did not leave immediately but rushed excitedly over to the long-range attack’s side where Long Yuxue was. “That boy is not human! Isn’t he even a little tired?” Jiang Wuyue was already fatigued after engaging in a long, fierce battle despite being an Overlord Dragon soul master. Yet, it seemed like Tang Wulin was still lively and in high spirits. Furthermore, he had just launched another domain.
The Golden Dragon Rage Domain had a critical impact on the battlefield. Close combat could be carried out with such precision due to its presence. Otherwise, the Black Empress’s assault earlier would have delivered a destructive blow to them.
Long Yuxue also felt speechless. She was well aware that Tang Wulin was very powerful but she had not expected him to be that powerful. The two-word battle armor on his body had an overall amplification effect on his performance at the battlefield such that he could even be on par with a Blood God.
His individual fighting capacity was certainly far below a Blood God’s, yet his ability to assist in the battle could not be matched even by a Blood God. His domain, capable of supporting the entire battalion, was not something the Blood Gods were bestowed with.
The battle continued as every abyssal tide was a prolonged fight, especially the Grade 3 abyssal tide which would go on for at least two to four weeks. However, they had a good start. The stress they faced in the beginning was not too much making it easy for their headquarters to allocate adequate resources and make suitable arrangements.
There were some rough spots which were difficult to block but the smooth operation of the defense allowed them to allocate more staff for preparatory work. There were a few large-scale soul devices being transported continually for installation. The entire Blood God Army was running smoothly.
“Yuxue, do you realize that there’s something peculiar about his golden spear? Usually, after an abyssal creature died, its abyssal energy will return to its abyssal plane to nourish a brand new abyssal creature. Yet, Tang Wulin’s spear seems to be able to devour the abyssal energy so it has no way of returning anymore. I’ve no idea what’s going on with him. I’ve heard from the regimental commander that the abyssal plane is capable of sustaining the effort to launch the abyssal tide continuously because their original source has never been harmed before. As a result, their origin energy can always be restored after the battle. If the effect of Tang Wulin’s golden spear can be developed, then we’ll be able to weaken the abyssal plane’s strength a little during each battle. They’ll need to consider that the next time they wish to launch another abyssal tide.”
Long Yuxue squinted as she had also realized the same thing. Those grey-black airflows were sucked away by the golden spear while Tang Wulin’s aura seemed to grow stronger after absorbing those airflows. That ought to be the long spear’s effect. Every soul master had his or her own secret. As such, it would not be polite to ask him about it.
The situation was especially evident in today’s battle. Tang Wulin was the person charging in front so the surrounding airflows transformed from the dead and injured abyssal creatures were surging into his golden spear akin to the rivers that flowed into the sea. The golden spear’s radiance extended almost thirty meters and was simply all-conquering such that even a Ba An found it difficult to resist.
It seemed like his power had improved. Had he always been rejuvenating himself in the past?
Of course, they were unaware of the birth of Tang Wulin’s Dragon Core after he absorbed a portion of the Black Empress’ abyssal energy to elevate his blood essence power to another level. His blood essence’s strength was enough for him to rival a seven-ring Soul Sage. Moreover, he had the amplification of his two-word battle armor. Naturally, his fighting capacity was elevated on a large scale.
The Golden Dragon Spear was closely related to Tang Wulin’s Golden Dragon King Bloodline. His bloodline power was elevated with the assistance of the Dragon Core so his Golden Dragon Spear’s power had also been enhanced to absorb energy from a longer distance.
