Tang Wulin knew that he had still been too complacent and underestimated just how quickly his friends had grown. He shouldn't have charged out so quickly at the beginning and opened up so much distance between himself and his teammates, thereby giving Shrek's Six Monsters a chance to isolate and surround him.
Furthermore, his friends really did hold him in high regard; it was quite clear their plan from the very beginning was to take him out as quickly as possible before addressing A'Ruheng and Sima Jinchi. The six of them had perfect synergy, and their attacks had clearly been bolstered by the effects of the Bloodthirsty Red Bean Buns, making even Tang Wulin struggle to defend himself against them.
His Golden Dragon Tyrant Body had blocked the first wave of attacks, but this sneak attack from Xie Xie was simply far too lethal.
Even the spectating Long Yeyue didn't think that Tang Wulin had any chance of turning the tables, but she had a very pleased smile on her face.
If Tang Wulin were the only powerful member of Shrek’s Seven Monsters, then she would be very disappointed. No matter how powerful he was, he was still only one person, and there was simply far too severe a limitation on the things that one person could do.
However, if the rest of Shrek’s Seven Monsters were also forces to be reckoned with, then they would form a generation of powerful beings that would lead from the front in the revival of Shrek Academy and take it to the pinnacle of the entire continent again.
As such, how could Long Yeyue not be elated to see the dire situation that Tang Wulin was in? These kids had all grown up!
However, right when everyone had thought that Tang Wulin was completely at the mercy of his friends, the sound of a violent heartbeat suddenly rang out.
As the thunderous heartbeat erupted, everything else seemed to fall silent. Xie Xie, who was the closest to Tang Wulin and currently in the process of attacking him, clearly faltered momentarily. However, this heartbeat didn't come from Tang Wulin; it came from A'Ruheng instead.
The first one to be struck by Dazzling Starlight was Tang Wulin, followed by Sima Jinchi and A'Ruheng, and right before he was struck, the sound of A'Ruheng's heartbeat rang out.
In a team battle, it was a huge disadvantage not to have a control system Soul Master. A'Ruheng certainly wasn't a control system Soul Master, but the congenital secret method of the Body Sect that he had cultivated did possess certain control system abilities. As such, in the instant that he unleashed this control ability, the sound of his heavy heartbeat affected all of Shrek's Six Monsters.
They had actually all witnessed A'Ruheng using his heartbeat to disrupt his opponents during the Star Battle Net Inter-federation Competition, but seeing it on a television screen was completely different from facing it in person.
On top of that, A'Ruheng had progressed from the Soul Douluo level to the Titled Douluo stage since that competition, and he was now the true Body Douluo. As a result, he improved even further in his congenital secret method and had truly reached a stage of full mastery. Hence, his raucous heartbeat made all of Shrek's Six Monsters' hearts skip a beat.
Due to the insufficient blood circulation that resulted from this, their martial soul outputs were abruptly cut off, and the effect of Dazzling Starlight was forcibly nullified.
A smile appeared on Tang Wulin's face. He wasn't fighting on his own, after all!
Silver light flashed from his left hand, which he had reached behind himself, and another spear appeared in his grasp amid a flash of silver light. This was the Divine Atlas Spear of the Atlas Douluo, which was a weapon that had once reigned supreme over the entire continent, and a crisp clang rang out as the spear blocked Xie Xie's attack.
At the same time, Tang Wulin's soul rings suddenly lit up; not his five golden soul rings, but his seven soul rings instead, which he had instantly switched to. As opposed to unleashing his martial soul true body, the soul ring that lit up was his second one.
Shrek's Six Monsters were all very familiar with Tang Wulin, and they naturally knew what his second soul skill was.
Bluesilver Impaling Array? How was that going to help him in a situation like this? Did he think that his Bluesilver Impaling Array would be enough to control everyone?
At this moment, everyone had surrounded Tang Wulin, so his Bluesilver Impaling Array was indeed able to encompass all of his opponents, but this was still only his second soul skill; so what if it could encompass the entire battlefield? With the current powers of Shrek's Six Monsters, they had many ways to deal with such a weak control ability.
However, just when they had thought that Tang Wulin was only making futile efforts, an astonishing scene ensued.
A series of thick and powerful Bluesilver Emperor vines erupted from the ground, but in the instant that they appeared, they turned into a bluish-golden color amid bursts of dragon's roars. They were light bluish-golden dragons that were surging out of the ground, and the front tip of each and every Bluesilver Emperor vine had taken on the shape of a dragon's head.
What was even more astonishing was that the vines were shimmering with golden light, and being struck by them was inevitable as the array had already encompassed a radius of over 100 meters.
Everyone had unleashed abilities that they thought would be sufficient to ward off the effects of the Bluesilver Impaling Array, but they still fell under its control.
Their bodies were momentarily immobilized, and even their bloodlines also seemed to have been dominated. All of their attacks were cut off almost in complete unison, and the pressure on Tang Wulin was instantly alleviated.
A faint smile appeared on his face as he swept his Golden Dragon Spear and Divine Atlas Spear horizontally through the air at the same time.
Yue Zhengyu and Yuanen Yehui were both sent flying by his spear, and he had already held back as they were his friends, but they were still launched into the distance like speeding arrows.
At the same time, the Divine Atlas Spear disappeared from his grasp, and he reached out behind himself with his left hand like lightning while stomping his right foot into the ground to unleash his Golden Dragon Shakes the Earth!
Eight blush-golden giant dragons erupted forth, and shockwaves proliferated in all directions, immobilizing Xu Xiaoyan again just as she was about to exert her control again. Even Ye Xinglan's Stargod Sword was affected, and she was cut off by Sima Jinchi, who rushed onto the scene to reinforce Tang Wulin.
During a battle between Soul Masters, it was quite often the case that a single soul skill could completely turn the tide of the battle. This was why all Soul Masters pursued powerful soul skills in their cultivation.
Tang Wulin's trio looked as if they were on the cusp of defeat just a moment ago, yet a simple Bluesilver Impaling Array was enough to instantly transform the situation.
Yue Zhengyu and Yuanen Yehui, who were two of the main sources of offensive output, were sent flying, and no one could stop Tang Wulin now. He reached out with his left hand and grabbed a figure out of thin air, but as soon as Xie Xie was pulled out into the open, he vanished in a wraith-like manner again.
However, the situation on the battlefield was already set in stone. Tang Wulin smiled as he gently tapped his Golden Dragon Spear onto Xu Xiaoyan's shoulder.
Xu Xiaoyan's control was indeed extremely powerful, but once an enemy Soul Master got close to her, that would be the end of the role that she would play in the battle.
Xu Lizhi was standing behind Xu Xiaoyan, and he immediately raised both of his hands up into the air in a gesture of surrender while putting on a completely harmless expression. As a food system Soul Master, it wasn't his job to fight on the battlefield anyway.
Meanwhile, A'Ruheng had already rushed forward like a fierce gust of wind to hold back Yue Zhengyu and Yuanen Yehui, who were attempting to return to the battlefield.
This battle was already as good as over.
Tang Wulin exhaled as he turned to appraise the battle between Ye Xinglan and Sima Jinchi.
During this short time, the Dragonslaying Saber and Stargod Sword had clashed several hundred times in rapid succession. Even though Ye Xinglan was constantly backing away, she was still able to keep all of Sima Jinchi's attacks at bay, seemingly through nothing more than sheer willpower.
"Alright, that's enough!" Elder Long's voice rang out to announce a conclusion to this sparring match.
The saber and sword clashed one final time before Ye Xinglan performed a backward somersault and gently landed in the distance with a grim look on her face.
Even though she and Sima Jinchi had only clashed for a very short time, she had been forced to bear immense pressure from him during this time.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
