Hua Tao possessed rank 96 soul power, which was only slightly inferior to that of Li Yun. Furthermore, he possessed an extremely rare martial soul in the form of air control, which allowed him to battle through air manipulation. Not only did he possess extremely powerful combat prowess, he was also an assault and control system Soul Master. His control over air had been honed to near perfection, and his signature attacks included the likes of Air Cannon and Air Bind.
What he had just used was another one of his soul skills, Air Repulse, except he had used it on himself, rather than his opponent as he normally would. He was blasting himself back in order to forcibly evade Tang Wulin's attack, and Li Yun was extremely astonished to see this, precisely because he was aware of just how powerful Hua Tao was.
This young Tang Sect Master truly was something else! However, their original plan didn't involve directly combating the Spirit Pagoda; could it be that he was planning to destroy this Spirit Pagoda branch?
Regardless of how much the Dou Spirit Empire disliked them, this was still the Spirit Pagoda! They needed the Spirit Pagoda to provide the Soul Masters of their empire with sufficient soul spirits to support their cultivation.
If the Spirit Pagoda were to be destroyed, then the ramifications were certainly going to be far from minor!
He didn't know what had caused Tang Wulin to go berserk like this, but he was powerless to do anything in this situation. All he could do was look on as everything unfolded before his eyes, and do his best to minimize the role that the Tang Sect played in this incident. At the very least, he couldn't allow any members of the Tang Sect to appear on the scene. It seemed that Tang Wulin and his friends were doing quite well on their own anyway, so that wouldn't be an issue.
In reality, this battle was a very satisfying one for Li Yun to behold. He had held a grudge against the Spirit Pagoda for a long time, and his discontent toward them had reached a boiling point following the bombing of the Tang Sect headquarters.
Now that Tang Wulin and his friends were laying waste to the Spirit Pagoda headquarters, he was struck by a sense of vindictive satisfaction.
At this moment, Tang Wulin suddenly became even more fearsome. His body expanded even further, and a massive golden dragon tail appeared behind him. The enormous tail swept horizontally through the air, sending a pair of mechas flying with devastating force.
A pair of dragon horns then sprouted out of his head as he let loose a painful roar. This didn't seem to be his martial soul true body. Instead, it was as if his body were truly morphing into that of a dragon.
Following the emergence of the dragon horns, Tang Wulin's aura became extremely unstable and violent to the extreme. His eyes were completely of a bright red color, and there seemed to be boundless violent intent struggling to erupt out of his body.
He turned toward Air Douluo Hua Tao, who was rushing toward Tang Wulin from afar, and he pointed his Golden Dragon Spear at Hua Tao before hurtling directly toward him.
Hua Tao was currently feeling extremely enraged and frustrated. Never in the history of this branch of the Spirit Pagoda had they ever been dealt such a heavy blow, and what was even more infuriating to him was that he had no idea where this group of powerful beings had come from. Judging from their powers and abilities, he could tell that he had never encountered any of them before, so why were they suddenly attacking the Spirit Pagoda? Could it be that they were targeting members of the Holy Spirit Cult?
If the Holy Spirit Cult members in the secret underground research facility had been exposed, then the Spirit Pagoda was going to be in a lot of trouble.
Hence, right after he struggled free from Tang Wulin's Path of Regal Domination, the first thing that he considered was how to minimize losses for the Spirit Pagoda in the aftermath of this incident. This was the Spirit Pagoda headquarters, so he wasn't concerned for his own safety. The sirens had already been activated, and the Spirit Pagoda branches in the nearby few cities would already have been notified of this situation. In less than an hour, over 200 mechas would be deployed to the scene, and no matter how powerful these people were, they would eventually be worn down and killed.
However, he was feeling rather fearful of the golden-scaled leader of this group. His aura was simply far too powerful, and the extraordinarily devastating blood essence fluctuations emanating from his body didn't even seem to belong to a human. As such, he was completely unable to ascertain Tang Wulin's exact cultivation rank.
In the face of the oncoming Tang Wulin, Hua Tao circled his arms in front of himself, and one of his soul rings lit up, causing the surrounding air to become extremely viscous, creating an invisible cage around Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin felt as if all of the air around him were compressing toward his body in an attempt to limit his movements. He felt as if he were being rejected by heaven and earth, and ejected out of this world.
In the face of such an attack from Hua Tao, it would be quite normal for a weaker Soul Master to have their body completely crushed. However, this naturally wasn't applicable to Tang Wulin.
As his violent aura continued to proliferate from his body, his Golden Dragon Spear suddenly turned transparent, and countless streaks of golden light erupted from the spear, tearing through the surrounding air, then surged directly toward Hua Tao.
Hua Tao swung his arms to the side, and a burst of enormous force wound itself around Tang Wulin before attempting to send him flying, but brownish-yellow light suddenly flashed from his body, and his Mountain Dragon King torso bone abruptly increased gravity by tenfold, thereby forcibly holding him in place. He then flapped his wings violently, and fearsome dragon's might erupted forth in a frenzy.
This was the most powerful Golden Dragon Roar that Tang Wulin had unleashed, and it was filled with savagery and violence. Not only were all of the Soul Masters present with dragon-type martial souls heavily affected, all those who possessed beast martial souls were struck by the urge to fall to the ground and bow their heads in subordination.
Meanwhile, a large ship had just docked on a distant coast of the Dou Spirit Empire, and a silver-haired woman on the ship seemed to have sensed something. She abruptly raised her head with a stunned look in her eyes, and in the next instant, silver light appeared over her entire body, following which she vanished into thin air.
Hua Tao felt as if his aura were being completely dominated. He felt like he was facing a primordial beast rather than a human, and even as a Hyper Douluo, his powers had been severely handicapped in the face of this devastating aura. He didn't dare to face this attack head-on, and he detonated the air again, blasting him back over 100 meters in a flash.
Right at this moment, a golden streak of light passed right through where he had been standing just a moment ago, tearing through space and leaving a black gash in the air.
As opposed to setting off in pursuit of Hua Tao, Tang Wulin suddenly shot forth directly toward the Spirit Pagoda like a golden cannonball. At this moment, he resembled a golden shooting star, and at the same time, a massive Tyrant Dragon appeared out of thin air.
The Tyrant Dragon's body was covered in dark golden scales, and its height had already exceeded 75 meters. The relatively tiny dragon wings on its back had become a lot larger than before, and what was even more terrifying was that its head had also enlarged dramatically. It opened its cavernous mouth and blasted a jet of golden flames directly toward the Spirit Pagoda building.
My god! Is he trying to destroy the Spirit Pagoda?
A hint of astonishment appeared on Hua Tao's face, and he immediately charged toward Tang Wulin like lightning, putting the Spirit Pagoda above his own safety.
However, it was already too late. Tang Wulin crashed viciously into the side of the Spirit Pagoda building, and countless pieces of rubble flew in all directions amid a resounding boom.
A gargantuan crater with a diameter of over 10 meters was blown into the side of the Spirit Pagoda building, and Tang Wulin raised his right hand to unleash his Golden Dragon Shocks the Heavens.
A giant golden dragon surged directly into the Spirit Pagoda through the crater that had just been created, and a string of explosive booms quickly rang out.
At the same time, an enormous wave of air swept up Tang Wulin's body and sent him flying. At this point, Hua Tao was at the height of his rage. He no longer cared about where these people had come from; all he wanted was to destroy them!
Ever since the Spirit Pagoda had been founded, no one had ever dared to attack one of its branches in such a blatant and brazen manner!
Hua Tao's body quickly turned transparent as he became a part of the air. This was his martial soul true body, Air!
At the same time, he donned his suit of three-word battle armor, which was also transparent.
The surrounding air suddenly became dense and heavy, and there seemed to be countless clouds swirling within it. Not only did this dense air encompass Tang Wulin, it had settled over the entire battlefield.
Immediately thereafter, he released his three-word battle armor domain, Air Domain. This domain was different from the vast majority of three-word battle armor domains as it was a massive domain field. It wasn't all that powerful, but it encompassed a massive area that was thrice as large as that of the average three-word battle armor domain.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
