His head was slightly lowered to prevent others from being able to see his expression as his eyes were currently filled with ecstasy.
He had finally succeeded!
After undergoing so many heavenly refinements and experiencing such immense pressure from Yuanen Zhentian, in addition to everything he had learned during his cultivation journey, as well as transcending so many elemental tribulations, he had finally combined all of his abilities for the very first time.
The "dragon" originated from the Golden Dragon King, while the "emperor" stemmed from his Bluesilver Emperor.
His Golden Dragon Roar, Bluesilver Golden Array, Golden Dragon Vibrational Explosion, power of laws, Path of Regal Domination, and some other things that he couldn't fathom had finally integrated themselves into one single attack in that instant.
Restrict All Laws, Dragon Emperor Break!
Tang Wulin was throwing up blood not because he had overexerted himself. Instead, it was because he had restricted the attack as much as possible so that its full power wasn't unleashed. Otherwise, his opponent would most definitely be dead by now.
In the instant that the integration had taken place, both his dragon core and soul core had moved in unison, with his dragon core sinking downward, while his soul core rose up.
As he unleashed that almighty punch, his dragon core and soul core fused as one, and all of his spiritual power was also infused to integrate all three types of powers.
He had uttered the name of the attack one word after another not to show off, but because with every syllable that was enunciated, all of the power within his own body was being shaken up, and in the end, fully integrated.
Those four words had been formed in his mind in an instant, and everything had been so natural, as if it had been dictated by the laws of heaven and earth.
Only in the instant that Tang Wulin unleashed that punch did Tang Wulin realize where the pinnacle of Soul Masters lied; his objective wasn't to be able to use the power of laws, it was to break through these laws!
His cultivation rank hadn't changed at all, but in the aftermath of unleashing that attack, his powers had instantly evolved.
At this moment, he really wanted to face Yuanen Zhentian again and unleash this Dragon Emperor Break in its entirety to see exactly how powerful it was. The attack was definitely far more powerful than the sum of all of his constituent powers.
On top of that, in contrast with all of the abilities that Tang Wulin had invented for himself in the past, he could clearly sense that this integrated attack would definitely become more powerful as his cultivation rank improved.
He had finally attained his first powerful ability that belonged solely to him, and this was his true path. Following his Titled Douluo breakthrough, his foundation had become slightly unstable, but he had finally managed to consolidate it once again.
He had no interest in watching the rest of the matches; all he wanted to do now was to return to the blacksmith association as quickly as possible to reflect on and completely master this attack.
Dragon Emperor Break had the ability to shatter all laws, which meant that it could destroy all illusionary, energy-based, and spiritual attacks.
Only after returning to the resting area did Tang Wulin realize just how feeble he had become. Intense waves of dizziness were washing over him, and his clothes were drenched in cold sweat.
He was already carrying severe injuries into the match, and he had integrated everything that he had without any reservation to unleash that attack. During such an integration process, there was no way he could keep tabs on his own physical tolerance.
Only after all of the excitement and adrenaline had worn away did the crippling exhaustion set in.
After Tang Wulin sat down onto a chair, he felt like he never wanted to move again, and even lifting a finger seemed to be a herculean task.
It had been a very, very long time since he had been this feeble, yet he was also extremely excited.
This was a wonderful sensation; his physical exhaustion was aiding his mental clarity, allowing to condense all of the changes that had just taken place. He knew that he had succeeded in creating something that he could call his own.
He had to completely master this attack, and once he did so, integrating all of his other abilities would become a far more straightforward process. Once he completely integrated everything, he would progress to become a Hyper Douluo or even Limit Douluo.
This was going to forge the foundation for him to be able to contend with quasigod level powerful beings like Infernal King Douluo Harosha in the future!
Right at this moment, a familiar voice rang out. "Here!"
Tang Wulin raised his head with difficulty to discover Lan Fuozi standing before him, handing him a bottle of water.
Tang Wulin accepted the bottle of water, and said, "Thanks."
In Lan Fuozi's eyes, Tang Wulin was currently deathly pale and drenched with sweat, seemingly having had all of the energy drained from his body. His aura was in complete disarray, and even his soul power fluctuations were almost non-existent.
"How can you continue to compete when you're in such bad condition? Is this event really that important to you?" For some reason, Lan Fuozi felt the urge to suddenly interrogate Tang Wulin.
"Of course!" Tang Wulin replied without any hesitation, then gulped down several large mouthfuls of water in succession, which slightly alleviated his discomfort.
"Hmph!" Lan Fuozi harrumphed coldly before storming away.
"What a weirdo." Tang Wulin was never able to keep up with Lan Fuozi's sudden mood swings.
"What am I going to do with you, you reckless boy?" Right at this moment, a gentle voice suddenly rang out in Tang Wulin's ears, and he immediately shuddered, but at the same time, he identified whom the voice belonged to, and a smile instantly appeared on his face.
"Mother, why are you here?"
Holy Spirit Douluo Yali had arrived by his side, and she was currently disguised as an old woman.
"How could I not come here after hearing about your injuries? I was living the life and thoroughly enjoying myself, but I had no choice but to drop everything and pay you a visit. Why is your condition so serious? According to what Zang Xin told me, it shouldn't be this bad! How did you exert yourself so much battling a Soul Douluo?"
Yali pressed a hand against Tang Wulin's back as she spoke. With her powers, no physical contact was required for her to administer treatment, but they were currently in a public resting area, so she didn't want to display more of her abilities than necessary.
Warm and gentle soul power flowed into Tang Wulin's body, and he felt as if he were basked in warm sunlight. His body immediately began to warm up, and the flow of cold sweat quickly ceased. All of his injuries were also being nourished by this warm sensation, and it was extremely comfortable.
"It's so good to have a mother," Tang Wulin said with a smile.
"Foolish boy," Yali chuckled in response, following which her brows furrowed slightly with concern. "Even with your physical constitution, these injuries won't be easy to recover from. Hmph, that Yuanen Zhentian really is an old bastard!"
Tang Wulin hurriedly shook his head, and said, "It's not Senior Zhentian's fault. During the earlier match, I seem to have made a breakthrough in my control over my own powers, and I went a little overboard, which is how I ended up like this."
"You made another breakthrough? My son is the best!" Yali said with a warm smile. In her eyes, Tang Wulin was the epitome of perfection, and she wasn't being sparing at all with her motherly love.
Tang Wulin was just about to elaborate further when Yali raised a hand to cut him off. "Concentrate on recovery first; we'll talk about everything else after we go back."
As the undisputed most powerful healing-system Soul Master on the entire Douluo Star, Yali's healing abilities were beyond reproach, and her pure and holy energy was slowly repairing all of the damage within Tang Wulin's body.
Her healing didn't involve overtly stimulating the body's natural recovery response. Instead, she was injecting her own soul power into Tang Wulin's body as if her soul power were a spirit item.
Of course, this method of treatment wasn't applicable to everyone. Even if she were willing to expend so much soul power, not everyone could absorb such pure and rich energy.
Right at this moment, another figure approached Tang Wulin, and he raised his head to discover that Lan Fuozi had returned.
Lan Fuozi had already reverted back to her normal calm expression, but she couldn't help but falter slightly at the sight of the Holy Spirit Douluo. Even though Yali had already released an invisible barrier to conceal her healing aura, Lan Fuozi was naturally able to identify that she was treating Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin was still holding the water bottle given to him by Lan Fuozi, and he asked, "Why did you come back?"
Lan Fuozi pointed at his water bottle, and said, "If you're done drinking, then return the bottle to me."
Tang Wulin hadn't paid much attention to the water bottle before, but as he looked down at it now, he discovered that it was a white water bottle with a special blue insignia, seemingly depicting a large fish winding itself around the bottle.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
