Shadow King Teng Teng rushed off to the side as an afterimage while Wind King Lin San followed closely behind Dai Yueyan like a shadow.
Hua Lantang's seventh soul ring lit up, and his body was also being illuminated by the enhancing lights of the Seven Treasures Glazed Pagoda as he transformed into a massive wolf that was over four meters tall and over eight meters in length. His entire body was covered in battle armor and a suit of armor formed by dragon scales, and he charged forward at a speed that exceeded even that of Dai Yueyan.
The six of them were working together seamlessly and displayed the full extent of their power from the get-go.
Meanwhile, Shrek's Six Monsters had also sprung into action. Yuanen Yehui led the way, taking a large stride forward as her body instantly swelled drastically in size.
Dai Yueyan was already very imposing in his giant tiger form, but he was still dwarfed by Yuanen Yehui's Diamond Titan.
Her suit of earthy yellow battle armor instantly became as thick and heavy as a mountain, and a fearsome primordial aura erupted from her Titan Giant Ape True Body, which was over eight meters tall. The Titan Giant Ape looked straight ahead with a calm expression, then swung both fists through the air in unison, launching them toward both Dai Yueyan and Hua Lantang at once.
Hua Lantang's Dragon Wolf True Body abruptly accelerated and sprang forth like lightning. A giant dragon seemed to have surfaced over his body, and flapped his wings vigorously, evading Yuanen Yehui's fist before crashing directly toward her chest as fast as lightning.
After attaining a martial soul true body, every single one of a Soul Master's attacks would become significantly more powerful than they had been in the past.
Hua Lantang had a vast wealth of battle experience, and he knew that in Tang Wulin's absence, Yuanen Yehui was undoubtedly going to be the core of Shrek's Six Monsters. If he could eliminate her from the battle or force her into retreat, then the rest of Shrek's Six Monsters would all be completely exposed.
Furthermore, Hua Lantang was also extremely confident in his own powers. With the enhancements provided by Ye Zhi, his powers would be close to those of a Soul Douluo, so he was confident that he would be able to force back even the most powerful of assault system Soul Sages.
These thoughts all flashed through his mind in an instant, and as he continued to hurtle through the air, he was already planning his next attack.
With Dai Yueyan assisting him from the side, there was no way that Yuanen Yehui would choose to take them on in a direct clash.
Just as he was thinking this, a burst of strange suction force suddenly appeared, and Hua Lantang was stunned to find that he was being led astray from his original course. He was forcibly drawn to the side, and the giant fist that he should've already evaded was suddenly right in front of him.
After a brief split-second of shock, Hua Lantang adjusted to take on the oncoming fist, but instead of crashing directly toward him, he found that it was crashing down toward him instead.
He immediately felt as if he had sunk into a swamp-like vortex, and even with Ye Zhi's enhancements, he was struck by a sense of powerlessness.
His dragon scales immediately stood up on end before flying toward the fist as a metallic storm. At the same time, he abruptly flipped over in mid-air, swiping his wolf claws toward the fist as opposed to meeting it with his back.
He had reacted extremely quickly, and his execution and judgment had also both been exceptional.
Without the enhancements from the Seven Treasures Glazed Pagoda, there was no way that he could've performed this series of maneuvers so quickly, but Hua Lantang was already used to this. He and Ye Zhi were lovers, so they always battled alongside one another, and he had grown accustomed to Ye Zhi's enhancements long ago.
Right at this moment, the fist that was crashing down from above suddenly disappeared, only to be replaced by a vortex that swept up the storm of dragon scales before sending them flying in all directions, including toward Dai Yueyan and the rest of the Monster Six Kings. In the next instant, Hua Lantang's back landed on the ground, and he immediately sprang to his feet. This first clash had taken place within the span of just a few seconds, and Hua Lantang's offensive momentum had been completely nullified.
In his mind, both he and Yuanen Yehui had gone all-out during that clash, but that wasn't the case in the eyes of the spectators as Yuanen Yehui was facing another opponent as well.
Dai Yueyan rushed forward in his giant tiger form, swiping his claws viciously toward Yuanen Yehui's right fist. The sharp tiger claws sliced several black rifts into the air, and they possessed offensive power equivalent to an attack from a Titled Douluo.
The same spiraling suction force also acted upon Dai Yueyan's body, and his brows furrowed slightly, but he remained as firm as ever. The rumbling tiger's roar he was uttering suddenly became louder, and his claws tore through the vortex before clashing with Yuanen Yehui's fist.
"Clang!" A clear clang rang out, and Yuanen Yehui's enormous Titan Giant Ape body swayed slightly before taking a step backward. She then immediately ducked down before ramming her shoulder toward Dai Yueyan's chest.
Meanwhile, Hua Lantang had just clambered to his feet, and his dragon scales were flying in all directions.
Even though it was only for a very short time, Yuanen Yehui had managed to keep both of these assault system Soul Masters at bay on her own, and that was even after they'd been enhanced by the Seven Treasures Glazed Pagoda.
Dai Yueyan was extremely stunned by this. He was well aware of how powerful his own tiger claws were, but they had only left a few faint white marks on his opponent's battle armor, and these marks quickly faded away. Just what kind of material could be this resolute?
In the face of Yuanen Yehui's shoulder charge, Dai Yueyan's sixth soul ring lit up, and his body instantly took on an illusionary quality, transforming into white streaks of light that converged inward. This was his White Tiger Devil Slash!
Clashes between assualt system Soul Masters were always the most exhilarating to watch. At the same time as Dai Yueyan was unleashing his White Tiger Devil Slash, the Speed-reducing Halo and Soul-power-draining Halo also arrived, and they both encompassed Yuanen Yehui at the same time.
However, right at this moment, the entire drill ground suddenly fell dark. Specks of shimmering light appeared in the sky, and countless dazzling stars had emerged above the drill ground.
Hua Lantang looked up at the mesmerising stars and was struck by a sense of captivation. Just as he was wondering where these stars had come from, one of them suddenly descended from above and reached him almost instantaneously.
The star posed no threat to him. Instead, from Hua Lantang's perspective, being illuminated by the star would be the best thing to ever happen to him.
Following that last clash against Yuanen Yehui, his momentum had been completely halted, so there was no way that he could evade the descending star.
Right at this moment, a halo appeared above him, and the star was suddenly reversed, shooting back up into the sky.
This was Su Mu's Repelling Halo, and it had saved Hua Lantang just in the nick of time.
Cold sweat immediately began to bead up on Hua Lantang's forehead. It was undoubtedly the case that if that seemingly innocuous attack had actually struck him, he would've been eliminated for sure.
What is that?
Right at this moment, countless streaks of starlight began to descend all over the entire drill ground, affording the Monster Six Kings no avenue for evasion.
Fox King Su Mu's third soul ring lit up even further, and with the enhancements he received from Ye Zhi, he was able to conjure up Repelling Halos that reversed the trajectories of these stars.
Even so, he was still extremely astonished. Even though this attack encompassed a very large area, he could tell that it was still extremely formidable and hadn't sacrificed quality over quantity. If it weren't for the fact that his Repelling Halo just so happened to be a counter to this soul skill, all of them would be in dire straits!
"Thump!" A dull thump rang out, and Dai Yueyan stumbled backward a few steps, while Yuanen Yehui's body only swayed slightly.
They were also being enhanced by Xu Lizhi's steamed buns. Under the enhancement effects of the Bloodthirsty Red Bean Bun and Sturdy Crystal Bun, Yuanen Yehui was like an immovable mountain.
Dai Yueyan's White Tiger Devil Slash was indeed very formidable, but Yuanen Yehui had countered it using her Devil Titan soul skill. Regardless of how many attacks and skills Dai Yueyan had, she was determined to keep him at bay with her astonishing defenses and strength.
The effect of her battle armor really shone through at a time like this, and her defensive prowess was so extraordinary that even Dai Yueyan was struck by a sense of powerlessness.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
