Chapter 983: Domain of Ice
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Tang Wulin had never fought with Long Yuxue before, but he was aware that she was very skilled in her long-range attack abilities, especially her impressive control of soul weapons and timing. However, he did not know anything about her martial soul or cultivation base.
Tang Wulin figured out that Long Yuxue was an elemental-type soul master after five soul rings arose from underneath her feet. Her martial soul was ice!
Sticks of icicles emerged from the area surrounding her body. She looked just like an enormous ice hedgehog. Tang Wulin could not see which of her soul rings was glowing under the concealment of the icicles. However, the ground underneath her feet was freezing rapidly and an icy blue color was spreading in all directions. To his surprise, the temperature of the huge competition stage was dropping swiftly.
What was that? Her domain?
‘A five-ringed Soul King capable of creating a domain? Oh, my god! What sort of monsters are in this army? No wonder she’s capable of becoming a lieutenant colonel at such a young age. Not because she’s lucky, but because of her abilities!’
Even though Tang Wulin was not planning to lose on purpose but he would still allow her to launch a few attacks anyhow. He could tell that Long Yuxue would need some time to unleash her domain-type ability, so he might as well gave her the chance.
“Huh?” Tang Wulin’s expression suddenly changed because he discovered that while he did not try to disable Long Yuxue’s domain, she herself appeared to have no intention of stopping it from spreading. It had only taken a moment before the domain had already covered one-third of the entire competition arena.
The arena had a diameter of five hundred meters! It was made exceedingly spacious for mecha battles. Tang Wulin’s Golden Dragon Rage Domain could only cover an area of one hundred meters in diameter when it was unleashed. This was far more significant than just being five times larger.
Long Yuxue’s domain area had already exceeded Tang Wulin’s Golden Dragon Rage Domain in size, and her domain was even more powerful in the sense that it came with multiplying effect. The larger the domain became, the lower the temperature in the space dropped. It seemed to have a cumulative effect so that the lower temperature would accelerate the growth of the domain once again.
‘What’s happening? Could it be that her domain can actually cover the entire competition arena? That’s a little too terrifying, right?’
Tang Wulin remained still, while he was feeling shocked in his heart. He would like to see how far Long Yuxue could actually go.
The temperature continued to drop while the densely arranged icicles around Long Yuxue had already completely covered her body. It was so cold around Tang Wulin, a drop of water would freeze. The mist from his breath turned into ice powder that scattered in the air, so the temperature had gone down to at least minus fifty celsius now!
Long Yuxue’s domain did not manage to cover the entire competition arena. The icicles around her body finally flew out when the domain spread out until it had covered almost half of the arena.
The icicles were flying in all directions. Within the domain, the icicles were shooting at a manageable speed, but they were growing larger shockingly fast.
The icicles that were less than a foot in diameter initially had already enlarged to one meter in length by the time they were fifty meters from Tang Wulin’s body. The icicle’s tip was sharp while its end was thick and heavy as they shot straight for Tang Wulin with a sharp howling noise.
Tang Wulin raised his Golden Dragon Spear and shook his wrist. With a flash of gold, an icicle exploded into pieces in the air. However, the shattered ice powder did not disperse and turned Tang Wulin’s body cold for a moment.
Tang Wulin felt cold despite his physique and blood essence power, so one could only imagine how low the temperature was after the icicle had exploded.
One icicle, two icicles, it was as if all the icicles in the air had eyes as they flew in Tang Wulin’s direction.
The explosion of icicles did no harm to Tang Wulin, but he soon discovered that as the surrounding temperature continued dropping, large patches of the ground began to freeze. On the other hand, Long Yuxue’s domain, which had already stopped growing in the distance, began to spread in his direction once again.
‘How can that be? Her domain is capable of growing by itself?’
Tang Wulin was aware that he could not wait anymore. The person that he was acquainted with turned out to be a most terrifying foe. Long Yuxue grew up in the Endless Mountains ever since she was young, so there was no telling if there were some other peculiar abilities that he was unaware of.
Tang Wulin touched the tip of his toes against the ground and dashed in Long Yuxue’s direction in a flash.
The ground was very slippery, but Tang Wulin was not put off by that. Diamond-shaped scales grew out from underneath his feet. Under his control, the scales perked upright and pierced the ice surface, firm enough that he could completely exert his strength to dash in Long Yuxue’s direction.
Long Yuxue scoffed. Her feet moved ever so slightly as her body began to accelerate and arrived over a hundred meters away in a flash.
How was that possible?
Tang Wulin was truly astonished now. It was unbelievable that Long Yuxue’s domain could do such a thing. There was no doubt that applying her domain in this way was derived from her own attribute and could only be described as an original idea. However, he had no choice but to admit that Long Yuxue was genuinely powerful as her domain was already unleashed completely. There was no way he could catch up just by relying on speed!
Long Yuxue raised her hand and shot out shards of icicles. The icicles were small when they first flew out, but they grew bigger and bigger! The icicles flew toward Tang Wulin like cannonballs with eyes.
Of course, Tang Wulin’s body, which seemed to be made of bronze, could not be damaged by the icicles so easily no matter how large they were. Yet, the issue was that these icicles were proving capable of reducing his speed. The icy surface also restricted his movements while amplifying Long Yuxue’s.
The domain consumed a large amount of Long Yuxue’s energy, yet the icicles were nothing for her. It was very difficult to tell which one of them would run out of energy first.
Tang Wulin spoke with a bitter smile, “Stop playing around.”
Long Yuxue spoke with a cold voice, “Who’s playing with you? Defeat me if you can. I won’t show you any mercy.”
Tang Wulin felt speechless for he wondered who it was that was showing mercy.
‘What should I do, huh? Of course, there’s a way!’
“I’ll be straightforward then!” said Tang Wulin helplessly.
Long Yuxue scoffed once. “I’d like to see if you can be straightforward too for a change!”
Tang Wulin paused for a moment first before he inhaled a deep breath. In reality, the easiest way was to unleash his battle armor and rely on his armor’s ability to fly. This way, the ground could not restrict his speed anymore and he could catch up to Long Yuxue.
Yet, the opponent was just a one-word battle armor master. Was he considered a bully if he were to unleash his two-word battle armor?
Thinking about it, he managed to find a solution!
The Golden Dragon Spear thrust out from Tang Wulin’s hand slowly after he inhaled a deep breath. It was not stabbing in Long Yuxue’s direction but into the air.
Long Yuxue managed to pull out more distance between herself and Tang Wulin. Tang Wulin was right in the center of the arena. Long Yuxue was stunned for a moment as well upon witnessing the spear. What was the boy doing?
However, her expression changed soon because she saw a layer of densely arranged scales emerge on Tang Wulin’s body when the spear moved forward. It was Tang Wulin’s Golden Dragon Body.
Long Yuxue had seen Tang Wulin unleash the scales before, but it was as if Tang Wulin’s entire body was glowing while his disposition also changed unexpectedly as soon as the spear thrust out. He still looked the same, but his dominant manner seemed to soar far beyond them, and he was exuding a solemn, untouchable aura. It was as he was subduing the chill in the air.
A seven-meter-long glowing spear burst out soon after the spear was thrust forward. An intense blood essence fluctuation burst into life. Not only that, rings of light scattered underneath Tang Wulin. Four golden soul rings began to shimmer and alternated with his five martial soul rings.
Dozens of Bluesilver Grass blades spread out in all directions simultaneously as his spear the thrust out, covering a large area in an instant. On the other hand, the hard ice on the ground began to vanish soundlessly wherever the Bluesilver Grass passed.
Long Yuxue was even more shocked to see that ice blue color clearly appeared on the Bluesilver Grass. The blue color was surging into Tang Wulin’s body and gradually transformed into faint golden radiance less than five meters away from him before fusing into his body.
What was that?
She was vaguely aware that Tang Wulin’s martial soul was a plant type but she was uncertain which. At present, she was filled with disbelief and confusion as she watched him breaking her domain in such a manner.
Soon after, Tang Wulin thrust the spear forward again. The first spear’s radiance was still shimmering in the sky when the second spear’s radiance had already flickered violently and even brighter and further than the first one in the sky. More and more vines were slowly emerging from Tang Wulin’s body. These vines were uneven but every time one stretched out, a portion of the domain on the ground disappeared.
