Tang Wulin appeared to have unleashed a very simple spear strike, but it was actually a combination of his blood soul fusion skill, Golden Dragon Spear, and unyielding will. He was only a seven-ring Soul Sage, but with the enhancements from his suit of two-word battle armor, his powers were comparable to those of a Titled Douluo. In addition, he possessed several types of extremely powerful abilities, and even a Hyper Douluo would likely struggle to force him back.
A terrifying explosion of energy erupted in the air. Sima Jinchi had just caught A'Ruheng, and the two of them were sent flying for several dozens of meters. They managed to right themselves in mid-air just in time to witness Tang Wulin unleashing his devastating attack, and they discovered that his Golden Dragon Spear was exuding an overbearing intent that they had never seen during the competition.
He was like a powerful eagle that was soaring through the heavens, unwilling to back down in the slightest even against the most fearsome of opponents.
The Golden Dragon Spear was repelled upward amid a resounding boom, and the giant golden dragon seemed to have already devoured Bear Lord. However, in the next instant, the golden light dissipated to reveal Bear Lord's true body.
Tang Wulin's face was slightly pale, but his spear-wielding was still firm and steady.
"I really didn't think that you'd become powerful enough to take a punch from me in such a short time. It's no wonder that Boss wants me to kill you as soon as possible; I now understand his reasoning. You've earned yourself the right to witness my true power!"
Bear Lord suddenly spread open his musclebound arms as he spoke, and a series of dark golden blades instantly sprang out of his fingertips. At the same time, his aura swelled drastically, and his body instantly expanded as he transformed into a terrifying giant bear that was over 100 meters tall in the blink of an eye. His dark golden claws also expanded along with his body, reaching over 30 meters in length each.
Even the perpetually headstrong A'Ruheng, Sima Jinchi, Ma Shan, and Jiang Wuyue couldn't help but draw a sharp breath in unison upon seeing this.
The creature standing before them was like a vicious deity who was capable of tearing through the heavens and crushing the earth!
"Duskgold Dreadclaw Bear!" Tang Wulin exclaimed.
He finally understood why this man's aura was so familiar to him. Back in the Spirit Ascension Plane, he had once encountered a Duskgold Dreadclaw Bear and obtained a right-hand soul bone from it, which had greatly enhanced his powers.
"Your martial soul is the Duskgold Dreadclaw Bear?" A grave tone had crept into Tang Wulin's voice.
He was naturally aware of just what a Duskgold Dreadclaw Bear entailed. From what he had been taught in Shrek Academy, this type of martial soul was comparable to giant dragons! However, there seemed to be no human Soul Masters in history who possessed Duskgold Dreadclaw Bear martial souls, and this was simply because this type of soul beast was far too ferocious.
1,000-year-old Duskgold Dreadclaw Bear could easily destroy normal 10,000-year-old soul beasts, and they truly stood at the very top of the soul beast food chain.
"Martial soul? That's something that only accursed humans like you possess! All humans deserve to die!"
Bear Lord didn't have any intention of wasting time with words, and he immediately swept his terrifying dark golden claws horizontally through the air.
His claws truly seemed to be capable of tearing through the heavens, and in the instant that they were unleashed, fearsome claw projections swept through an area with a radius of 500 meters. Not only were Tang Wulin, A'Ruheng, and Sima Jinchi caught in the scope of this attack, even the 24 black mechas that were situated further away were also encompassed within the range of this attack.
The sky abruptly dimmed, and in that instant, it was as if armageddon had descended upon the Blood Dragon Squad.
This is a Limit Douluo!
This thought suddenly occurred to Tang Wulin. This Bear Lord's powers were already comparable to those of a Limit Douluo, and on top of that, he was a Duskgold Dreadclaw Bear. That's right, he had just said "humans like you", so it was extremely likely that this man was actually an extremely powerful Duskgold Dreadclaw Bear!
Did such powerful soul beasts really exist in this world? Furthermore, this Bear Lord seemed to be targeting him.
All of these thoughts flashed through Tang Wulin's mind in an instant. With his current powers, abilities, and two-word battle armor, Tang Wulin was confident that he could even face a Hyper Douluo in battle, but this enemy was clearly far more fearsome than a Hyper Douluo.
This was Bear Lord, the ruler of the Duskgold Dreadclaw Bear, and one of the very few Great Beasts that still remained on this continent!
It was truly displaying its fearsome might now, and even though it was only unleashing a single attack, everyone was struck by the feeling that the sky was falling down onto them!
Tang Wulin took a deep breath, and a grave look instantly appeared on his face. He couldn't back down. He was the core of the Blood Dragon Squad, and if he were to back down now, everyone behind him would be struck by Bear Lord's devastating attack.
Even now, he would still have a chance to evade the oncoming attack if he were to retreat right away. However, retreat had already become a foreign concept to him from the moment he invented Path of Regal Domination and All or Nothing.
No matter how powerful and overbearing his enemies were, he could only continue to forge ahead and establish his own path of regal domination!
A loud dragon's roar instantly erupted from his Dragon Moon battle armor, and a huge golden dragon projection also surfaced behind him. The Golden Dragon Spear in his hand began to glow with scintillating light, and it was as if he had transformed into a golden sun.
Elemental particles of all different attributes in the air converged toward him in a frenzy, and even a Titled Douluo wouldn't be able to match his current level of power.
Countless streaks of golden light instantly erupted forth, and in that instant, Tang Wulin's mind was completely devoid of all thoughts aside from the spear in his hand.
Every single streak of golden light was like an actual Golden Dragon Spear, and all of them instantly tracked down the trajectories of the Duskgold Dreadclaws as they surged through the air. Each and every spear strike was aimed at the most resolute sections of the Duskgold Dreadclaws with unerring accuracy, and even though the golden spear projections were all destroyed by the devastating Duskgold Dreadclaws, the claws were slowed down as a result of the clash.
Furthermore, Tang Wulin wasn't fighting on his own. The sound of a violent heartbeat rang out from Tang Wulin's right side, and A'Ruheng's body instantly swelled to over 10 meters tall. The sound of his heartbeat was akin to muffled thunderclaps as he unleashed his blood essence fluctuations with all his might, and there were faint crimson flames burning around his body.
His peerlessly powerful blood essence seemed to have set his body alight, and he knew that this was the most powerful enemy he had ever faced, so he didn't dare to hold back at all. A layer of crimson-golden color appeared over his skin, and he hurtled forth toward Bear Lord from the side like a shooting star.
At this point, Sima Jinchi had also released his Dragonslaying Saber. A shrill dragon's roar of grief erupted throughout the entire heavens, and a gargantuan evil dragon emerged. Its anguished howls provided a whetstone that sharpened the Dragonslaying Saber, and the saber seemed to be threatening to part heaven and earth as it was swept through the air.
Peerless unstoppable intent was injected into the saber soul, and Sima Jinchi's body had completely disappeared. He had unleashed his seventh soul skill, His Dragonslaying True Body, and his saber soul had manifested itself in the form of an infernal hell.
At the same time, the 24 black mechas also unleashed their attacks in unison.
All of the melee combat mechas positioned themselves in front of the long-range attacking mechas, and there just so happened to be 12 of each.
Long Yuxue's heavy sniper soul cannon had already locked onto its target, and the blue light flowing over the surface of the massive soul cannon was becoming more and more pronounced. Just as Bear Lord's Duskgold Dreadclaws were about to reach everyone, this fearsome soul cannon finally fired its first shot.
A dark blue laser beam silently shot forth, and there was no resounding boom, nor any powerful aura being released. Despite the weapons enormous size, the laser beam it released was only about as thick as a human finger. In fact, one could easily miss the laser beam altogether unless they were to focus their attention on it.
The dark blue beam of light reached Bear Lord's chest in a flash, and there wasn't even any need to aim as Bear Lord's hundred-meter-tall body provided a gigantic target.
Tang Wulin's spear projections were only able to slightly oppose Bear Lord's Duskgold Dreadclaws, but the claw projections were still converging inward. However, his efforts hadn't been in vain. At the very least, he had bought the 24 black mechas behind him enough time to retreat to outside the range of the attack.
Bear Lord didn't pay much heed to this. He was only targeting Tang Wulin anyway, and as long as he could kill Tang Wulin, it didn't matter to him even if all of the other humans escaped.
However, right at this moment, a sharp pain suddenly shot through his chest. Bear Lord's expression stiffened slightly, and a layer of dense dark golden light instantly erupted from his dark golden fur.
The forte of a Duskgold Dreadclaw Bear lay in their defensive and offensive prowess, and even though he didn't possess any long-range attacks, it was no exaggeration to say that he was the king of close-quarters combat.
Bear Lord had already become one of the 10 Great Beasts tens of thousands of years ago, and he was ranked very high on the list. Aside from the lord of all soul beasts, the only one who drew genuine respect from him was the leader of the 10 Great Beasts.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
