After encountering Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon Spear, the power of Sima Jinchi's Dragonslaying Saber had improved at a drastic rate, and he felt as if he were improving virtually every single day. However, at the same time, his Dragonslaying Saber was also becoming closer and closer with Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon Spear.
In the face of this terrifying saber projection that was imbued with the power of a dragon, Tang Wulin remained completely unfazed. His eyes abruptly lit up, and he let loose a loud cry.
A massive golden dragon head suddenly appeared, and it was as if he had transformed into a golden dragon himself. His Golden Dragon Roar was combined with his dragon's might to produce a devastating attack that instantly shrank the saber projection down to only around half of its original size. Immediately thereafter, a burst of golden light appeared before flying through the air like lightning, and all of a sudden, countless bursts of dazzling golden light combined as one, converging toward the inky-black saber projection as it struck the golden spear projection.
A crisp clang rang out, and the deafening dragon's roar triggered a fierce energy storm within the drill ground.
Tang Wulin had already attained perfect mastery of his Fury of the Masses, and even back at the conclusion of the Star Battle Net competition, he had already attained an inkling of a spear soul. Following his battle against the powerful beings of the abyssal plane with the assistance from the planar power of the Douluo Continent, he managed to attain a complete spear soul, and that was how he had been able to invent his Path of Regal Domination and All or Nothing.
During the past few months of sparring with A'Ruheng and Sima Jinchi, his spear soul had been well and truly established, and his spear techniques had reached an extraordinary level.
He was able to use Fury of the Masses as if it were an extension of his own body, and even though it wasn't quite as powerful as the Fury of the Masses that Old Tang had demonstrated to him, it was undeniable that he had completely mastered it.
Golden light punctured through the air before piercing into the black saber projection. The Dragonslaying Saber began to emit an incessant ringing sound, and the spear soul imbued within the Fury of the Masses was threatening to detach the giant black dragon from the Dragonslaying Saber.
Right at this moment, the black dragon's crimson eyes suddenly turned golden in color, and the Dragonslaying Saber's aura also instantly changed drastically.
The violent aura of slaughter and ferocity suddenly became more placid, and its vicious nature instantly faded, only to be replaced by an indescribable sense of paramount might.
Tang Wulin and Sima Jinchi's bodies shuddered in unison, and a loud cry of elation rang out from Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon Spear. It then transformed into a real golden dragon that revolved around the Dragonslaying Saber.
Meanwhile, all of the light on the surface of the Dragonslaying Saber suddenly crumbled, and it abruptly rose up into the air as a burst of scintillating golden light. The saber expanded in size once again, and a strange scene appeared between Tang Wulin and Sima Jinchi.
This was a giant dragon with nine-colored light emanating from its entire body. Its peerless might struck even Tang Wulin and Sima Jinchi with a sense of asphyxiation, and the latter almost instantly knelt down and lowered his head to the ground.
Tang Wulin was still standing on the spot, but aside from the enormous pressure, he was also sensing an indescribable intimacy toward this giant dragon.
"My horn shall form the law-enforcing blade, and it shall slay all heinous dragons and sever all injustices. From this day forth, the law-enforcing saber of the dragon clan will be born, and heaven and earth must be parted to celebrate its arrival!"
The giant dragon suddenly shrank down to a humanoid figure wearing a long nine-colored robe. However, his facial features were obscured, and the giant golden blade fell into his grasp before he abruptly slashed it toward the heavens.
A burst of golden light erupted into air, and the sky was instantly halved with the sun, moon, and stars on one side, while the other side was completely devoid of light.
All of a sudden, the roars of countless dragons rang out throughout heaven and earth, as if there were tens of thousands of giant dragons expressing their utmost reverence.
The dragon horn had been forged into the law-enforcing saber, and all dragons were subject to its judgment!
"Dragon God, you've become far too conceited! Are you plotting to destroy the entire Divine Realm?" A sharp voice suddenly rang out from all directions.
Immediately thereafter, a dark green figure appeared out of thin air, not far away from the nine-colored figure. The voice was extremely high-pitched and uncomfortable to listen to.
"This is an internal affair of our dragon clan; how does it have anything to do with you?" the Dragon God asked in a cold voice.
The dark green figure chuckled coldly in response. "You're the monarch of the dragon clan and the paramount ruler over all of the beasts of the Divine Realm, yet you've created this divine weapon from your dragon horn, which can be regrown. Are you trying to create an endless supply of divine weapons to fuel a rebellion against the Divine Realm? The Divine Realm Committee has sent me here to warn you to restrain yourself."
The Dragon God immediately burst into condescending laughter. "I am the king of all beasts and beast gods alike; who are you to issue warnings to me? If the committee wants to tell me something, then get the godkings to come to me in person; a junior like you has no right to speak to me in such a rude manner. If you don't leave now, you'll become the first victim of my law-enforcing blade!"
"You'll regret this, insolent Dragon God! I'm here as a representative of the Divine Realm Committee!" The dark green figure seemed to have become enraged.
"What a joke! When has the Divine Realm Committee ever issued an order to me through a lowly god like you? They've always sent a godking to communicate with me in person. The gods and us beast gods have always co-existed in harmony; a mere yaksha like you has no place here! Piss off! "
The Dragon God let loose a thunderous roar, and the dark green figure instantly flew away as a streak of green light as if it had been targeted by some kind of fearsome power.
The Dragon God raised the giant golden saber in his hand in the air. "All evil-doers, all liars, and all disloyal traitors will be slain by this blade!"
The nine-colored figure suddenly expanded to the point where he stood like a pillar between heaven and earth. The giant golden saber in his hand also began to glow with boundless dazzling radiance.
Tang Wulin looked on in a stunned manner, and it was clear to him that these scenes depicted the origin story of the Dragonslaying Saber. In the instant that the nine-colored figure swelled to the apex of its stature, Tang Wulin discovered that he was suddenly able to clearly see his eyes.
The Dragon God's eyes were as clear as water without any impurities, and they seemed to contain the entire world alongside dazzling nine-colored divine light.
What an unfathomably powerful being!
The Dragon God seemed to have aimed a meaningful glance at Tang Wulin before the image suddenly crumbled before surging into the huge golden saber.
It was also right at this moment that Sima Jinchi suddenly raised his head up from the ground and let loose a thunderous roar to the heavens.
Bursts of golden light abruptly erupted from within his body, and the dazzling light pierced through his skin and his orifices. In that instant, it was as if his body had been completely destroyed. His skin was peeling off incessantly, and his clothes had been reduced to dust, leaving only a shimmering golden body.
In the next instant, golden light flashed, and he rose up into the air. The final remnants of the Dragon God's image faded, and all that was left was the golden figure, which had risen up into the air to combine as one with the huge golden Dragonslaying Saber.
What appeared to be a scintillating golden sun had also suddenly appeared above the drill ground, and under the radiance of this golden light, Tang Wulin could also clearly sense that something extra seemed to have appeared within his body.
His Golden Dragon Spear began to vibrate incessantly while emitting a ringing sound that resembled grief-stricken sobs, but also cries of elation. Its complex emotions were also influencing Tang Wulin's emotions, and he was suddenly struck by a sense of enlightenment.
The war that had taken place between the beast gods led by the Dragon God and the human gods most likely wasn't as simple as he had imagined it to be. There were most likely hidden details behind all of this. Otherwise, why had the beast gods turned on the entire Divine Realm, to the extent that they were hunted down to extinction?
Just how complex were the hidden circumstances behind this monumental war?
A'Ruheng had already been completely rooted to the spot. What he had witnessed was different from what Tang Wulin had seen. Instead of witnessing the scenes depicting the Dragon God, what he saw was that following Tang Wulin and Sima Jinchi's clash, dazzling golden light had erupted, and the Dragonslaying Saber had suddenly expanded drastically in size. Immediately thereafter, golden light had erupted from Sima Jinchi's entire body, transforming him into a golden man that rose up into the air before becoming one with the Dragonslaying Saber.
This was undoubtedly the sign of a breakthrough, but he had never heard of any other Soul Master experiencing the same situation in their breakthrough.
It felt as if Sima Jinchi had essentially sacrificed himself to elevate the Dragonslaying Saber.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
