Chapter 1577: Slaughter

This was a complete and utter slaughter. Even the great demons and Arba were forced to defend with all their might and fly back frantically in retreat in the face of the metallic storm.

At a time like this, they were far too busy protecting themselves than to worry about their brethren.

The demonic army had only just descended upon this world, and they had already been given a taste of the horrors of human soul technology in the form of the seven Holy Radiance missiles and one Metallic Storm.

This human technology was the very same thing that had driven the once-mighty soul beasts to near-extinction.

10,000 years ago, the soul beasts of the Great Star Dou Forest could still threaten Shrek City with beast tides of millions of soul beasts, but now, they barely even existed in this world, and that was sufficient testament to just how fearsome human technology was.

In the tightly-packed formation of the demonic army, the Metallic Storm worked to outstanding effect, devouring over 70% of the entire army. Even among the demons that survived, very few of them were unscathed.

All of a sudden, a figure encased in a suit of translucent golden armor appeared high up in the air. His face was concealed behind a mask, revealing only a pair of shimmering golden eyes.

A sleek long spear was held in his right hand, and all of the light around him was warping violently. A dazzling spear projection was suddenly unleashed, and it shot forth directly toward the ground down below.

In the instant that the spear projection came into contact with the ground, it suddenly brightened significantly, and all of the residual life energy from the demonic creatures that had just been torn apart by the Metallic Storm converged toward the golden light in a frenzy.

Behind the golden figure, the Golden Blood Dragon domain took shape, and at the same time, a massive purple flower bloomed beside him while his greenish-golden soul ring lit up.

The armored figure hovering up above was naturally none other than Tang Wulin, and at this moment, he was seated in mid-air with his legs crossed.

Scintillating light erupted from the Golden Blood Dragon domain, and extremely rich life energy flowed into his body through the Golden Dragon Spear.

This was life energy from tens of thousands of demons, and Tang Wulin's body instantly reached full saturation. Demons possessed extremely stellar life energy and exceptional regenerative abilities. Even though they couldn't be reborn like abyssal creatures, their combat prowess and life force were far superior to those of normal abyssal creatures.

As such, life energy from tens of thousands of demons was far more than any single person could absorb.

The greenish-golden soul ring flashed as a beam of light suddenly erupted into the heavens from the tip of Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon Spear. The beam of light was filled with life energy, and as it rose up into the air, there was finally an avenue for the life energy surging into Tang Wulin's body to escape.

At this moment, he was like a filter that was allowing the life energy surging forth from down below to pass through his body before erupting into the heavens.

A vast expanse of rainbow light gradually appeared around him, and initially, the light was still very faint, but it quickly became brighter and more substantial as it made sure to lap up every single trace of life energy revolving around him.

Even though the planar ruler of the Douluo Continent had no substantial form, it was able to understand that Tang Wulin was doing this for the benefit of the plane, and it was giving him its blessings.

Following that terrifying storm of death and destruction, the demonic army was currently in shambles.

Arba and the nine great demons had all been wounded, and the most severely wounded one had even had half its body torn away by the metallic storm. Even so, all of them remained alive, and their broken bodies were rapidly regenerating, further highlighting their immense life force.

"What the hell was that?" Arba roared with fury and horror in his voice.

The human world was truly a terrifying place! Even now, he still didn't understand how his subordinates had all been torn to shreds; what kind of power could've laid waste to his mighty army in the blink of an eye?

He looked up into the sky and caught sight of Tang Wulin. It was clear that everything that had just happened had something to do with him, and on top of that, what was he doing now? He was devouring the life force of the fallen demons! All of the lives of those demons belonged to their monarch, the great Arba!

Arba was driven to the brink of insanity by his fury, and he flapped his fiery wings violently as he flew up directly toward Tang Wulin.

However, right at this moment, a musclebound figure suddenly tore through space and appeared before Arba without any warning.

"Your opponent is me!" the burly figure roared as he threw an almighty punch to clash with Arba's fiery claymore.

"Boom!" A rumbling boom akin to an explosive thunderclap rang out, and Arba was forced back down onto the ground again. His opponent was also repelled upward, and the two of them were completely comparable in size.

This massive black figure that was giving off a mountainous aura was none other than Titan Giant Ape Er Ming!

A series of figures also began to appear in the surrounding area, and as soon as they emerged, they immediately began to slaughter the remaining demons.

There were over 100 powerful beings from the Yuanen Family among their ranks, and they had been waiting for a very long time. The previous opening of the demonic passageway had led to the passing of so many of their loved ones, so all of them were filled with vengeful fury at the sight of these demons and were tearing through them like enraged lions through a pack of sheep.

Yuanen Zhentian and Yuanen Tiandang silently appeared behind the great demons, and the former wore a cold expression, while the latter's eyes were burning with fury. In addition to Er Ming, the three Limit Douluo level auras had completely locked onto Arba and the nine great demons.

Just as Er Ming had said, the demonic plane wasn't as powerful as the Douluo Continent plane, and as such, the powers of demons were even further restricted.

Arba was already the most powerful being in the demonic plane, but he was only at the Limit Douluo level and was slightly inferior in power to even Er Ming.

With Er Ming's extensive knowledge of the demonic plane, he knew that a passageway connecting the two planes would definitely be rejected by the Douluo Continent plane as there was no way that the Douluo Continent would be suppressed by a plane of a lower level.

This meant that the demonic plane wouldn't be able to send too many powerful beings through the passageway, and it was already a monumental effort that they were able to send Arba through the passageway.

The demonic plane didn't have the resurrection ability of the abyssal plane, and that made them the ideal targets.

Tang Wulin's role didn't lie in battle. Instead, he was here solely to draw upon the life energy of these demonic creatures.

Even the most ordinary hellhounds possessed combat prowess equivalent to human Soul Elders, and this massive demonic army would undoubtedly provide a massive source of life energy for the ailing Douluo Continent, thereby presenting an unmissable opportunity.
