He silently inspected his surroundings to find that the spatial elemental fluctuations here were still quite powerful, and the abyssal passageway around him had taken on a deep orange hue. The temperatures here had exceeded 40°C, [104°F for mah American homies] so it was a lot hotter in here than it was outside. The temperature changes were currently the only indication to him that he was advancing toward the abyssal plane.
He stifled his own curiosity before turning back. It appeared that this was going to be a largely fruitless trip.
However, after walking for only a few steps, an indescribable feeling suddenly welled up in his heart. His dragon core contracted violently, and enormous blood essence fluctuations instantly erupted forth.
A faint cry of pain rang out, and Tang Wulin reflexively turned around while sweeping his Golden Dragon Spear through the air.
A black figure shot back like lighting, evading his spear and landing on the ground in the distance.
Was this an abyssal creature?
Tang Wulin was quite stunned by this sudden development as he hadn't sensed the presence of any abyssal creature even just a split second before this!
With his spiritual power and sensory abilities, that was quite extraordinary, and in the end, it was only his dragon core's emergency response that alerted him to the existence of this creature. It seemed to be very fearful of his blood essence fluctuations and was immediately forced into retreat.
Tang Wulin focused his gaze on the black shadow to find that it was a humanoid creature that was quite familiar to him. After taking a closer look, he was stunned to find that the black shadow bore a strong resemblance to him. Its height and figure were roughly identical to his, except its entire body was of a translucent black color, and its facial features were quite blurry.
The black figure seemed to be also appraising Tang Wulin, and there were no energy or aura fluctuations emanating from its body whatsoever. Tang Wulin's pupils gradually turned vertical, and a layer of platinum light appeared over his suit of battle armor. A spear projection erupted from his Golden Dragon Spear, and he thrust it directly toward the black shadow.
Powerful spear intent whistled through the air within the abyssal passageway, and platinum light flashed as the spear projection hurtled directly toward the black shadow.
The black shadow quickly retreated, and it appeared to be so light that its body seemed to be completely insubstantial. Tang Wulin couldn't sense any life force or energy fluctuations from the creature, but his instincts told him that this was a very dangerous being.
His spear projection hurled forth while a giant golden dragon emerged from the tip of the spear. This was none other than his Golden Dragon Shocks the Heavens, and the golden dragon instantly encompassed the entirety of the shadow.
However, a strange turn of events then unfolded. As the golden dragon came into contact with the black shadow, the golden dragon passed directly through its body.
During the process, Tang Wulin's golden dragon also took on a black color, turning into a shadow that began to revolve around the black figure.
Tang Wulin was stunned to see this. What was this creature supposed to be? This was the first time that he'd ever seen his Golden Dragon Shocks the Heavens being nullified like this.
It seemed that his attack had been taken by the creature. The black shadow raised a hand before pointing at Tang Wulin, and the black Golden Dragon Shocks the Heavens immediately pounced directly toward him.
Tang Wulin immediately adopted a calm expression. The more perilous the situation was, the more that he was able to keep his cool. He abruptly stomped his right foot onto the ground, and eight golden dragons erupted into the air amid a resounding boom. It was none other than his Golden Dragon Shakes the Earth.
The eight golden dragons were each far smaller than the Golden Dragon Shocks the Heavens, but they outnumbered the black Golden Dragon Shocks the Heavens eight to one.
As soon as they clashed, the black Golden Dragon Shocks the Heavens exploded and descended from above as a vast expanse of black mist. The eight golden dragons formed by Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon Shakes the Earth were quickly also tainted black, and due to the enhancements from the Golden Dragon Shocks the Heavens, each of them had also become significantly larger.
Thus, eight black dragons descended from above, hurtling directly toward Tang Wulin!
Tang Wulin's pupils abruptly contracted as his dragon core thumped violently. His third bloodline soul ring lit up, and an earth-shattering roar of fury rang out within the entire abyssal passageway.
An enormous golden dragon head appeared, and all of its whiskers resembled Bluesilver Emperor vines. This was his blood soul fusion skill, Blue Emperor Golden Dragon Roar!
The thunderous dragon's roar made the entire passageway tremor violently, and the eight black dragons were instantly destroyed, disintegrating into black streams of energy that were about to escape.
Tang Wulin thrust his Golden Dragon Spear through the air, and his blood essence power erupted forth. Scorching white light radiated from the Golden Dragon Spear, instantly drawing all of these streams of black energy into the spear.
Tang Wulin was immediately reciprocated by the energy from his own Golden Dragon Shocks the Heavens and Golden Dragon Shakes the Earth. The energy was filtered by his Golden Dragon Spear before returning to his body again.
In the distance, the black shadow seemed to have been temporarily immobilized by the intimidation of his Blue Emperor Golden Dragon Roar, and Tang Wulin immediately hurled his Golden Dragon Spear toward it. At the same time, countless Bluesilver Emperor vines were released from his body before sweeping toward his opponent.
In the instant that he'd unleashed his Blue Emperor Golden Dragon Roar, Tang Wulin sensed that the black figure could devour his energy-based attacks, but it seemed to be extremely fearful toward the life force energy released by his Bluesilver Emperor vines. As such, the enlarged Golden Dragon Shakes the Earth was easily destroyed by his Blue Emperor Golden Dragon Roar.
Seeing as it feared life force energy, his Bluesilver Emperor vines would naturally be the best weapons to use against it.
The black figure immediately tried to flee at the sight of the oncoming Golden Dragon Spear, but it was affected by the Blue Emperor Golden Dragon Roar and was unable to evade.
The Golden Dragon Spear passed through its body before flying into the distance, and the black figure let loose a howl of anguish that seemed to have originated from deep within its soul. The entire black figure was then sucked in by the Golden Dragon Spear and completely disappeared.
Tang Wulin withdrew his Bluesilver Emperor vines and waved a hand to draw the Golden Dragon Spear back into his grasp. In the next instant, his eyes abruptly widened with surprise.
He was stunned to discover that the energy flowing into his body wasn't fusing with his dragon core, nor his soul core. Instead, it flowed directly into his mind, making him feel as if his spirit had been cleansed, and he was able to sense the spatial elements within the abyssal passageway with even greater clarity.
Were these spiritual enhancements? This was the first time that the energy absorbed by his Golden Dragon Spear had enhanced his spiritual power.
Furthermore, this was a permanent increase, rather than just a temporary boost. This was a massively pleasant surprise!
After all, the most difficult thing to cultivate was spiritual power. He cultivated his Purple Demon Eyes every day, but as his spiritual power became more and more enormous, the rate of cultivation was becoming slower and slower. That influx of energy just then was the equivalent of the amount of spiritual power that he'd attain from cultivating his Purple Demon Eyes for at least a month, so how could he not be elated?
These abyssal creatures that had been the enemies of the Blood God Legion for countless years were like extremely effective spirit items to him!
With that in mind, a peculiar look appeared on Tang Wulin's face. He really wanted to see what the abyssal plane was like. If he were to become powerful enough to stay in the abyssal plane for a while, there was a good chance that he'd be able to make some significant breakthroughs. At the very least, the blood essence power that he accumulated would give him a greater chance of successfully breaking more Golden Dragon King seals in the future.
He had constantly been familiarizing himself with his own new body lately, and the more he did this, the more he came to realize just how immense the energy within the final nine Golden Dragon King seals was. The energy within the 10th seal alone was comparable to that of all of the previous nine seals combined, and the later seals would only contain more energy. However, breaking these seals would also present him with very stern tests, and if his body couldn't handle it, then he'd be as good as dead.
Absorbing the energy of abyssal creatures was definitely no less effective to him than consuming spirit items, and there was also almost no end to these creatures.
The increase in his spiritual power made him very excited, and he almost couldn't repress the urge to continue onward.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
