All of a sudden, the sound of the xun was cut off, and with nothing to oppose them any further, the nine torrents of light surged directly toward Tang Yinmeng.
Tang Yinmeng merely smiled and drifted forward, making no effort to evade the oncoming torrents of light. As she advanced, she occasionally played a series of short and sharp notes with her xun, and somehow, she was able to phase through the torrents of light to approach the elderly man.
Light flashed in front of the old man, and a giant bear that was over 30 meters tall appeared without any warning before slashing its claws toward Tang Yinmeng.
This was a Duskgold Dreadclaw Bear, and five golden claw projections had been sent hurtling directly toward Tang Yinmeng.
However, Tang Yinmeng remained completely calm and collected as she played a sharp note with her xun. The giant bear remained unaffected, but its attack was repelled as if the surrounding air had exploded.
Right at this moment, the nine-headed snake's second wave of attacks arrived, and it seemed that there would be no way for her to continue onward any further.
However a loud melody suddenly began to play from Tang Yinmeng's xun, and the giant bear and nine-headed snake both faltered, while the rhythm and frequency of their attacks began to match the melody of the xun.
As the melody being played began to change, the attacks from the giant bear and nine-headed snake became extremely erratic, and they were even occasionally clashing with one another.
Tang Yinmeng strode casually through these disorganized attacks, and it seemed that her movements were completely aimless, but upon closer inspection, one would discover that she was drawing closer and closer to the elderly man.
The man suddenly sighed, and said, "Have you already figured it out? In that case, you leave me no choice."
A ball of light appeared on his forehead as he spoke, following which his head began to expand, while the rest of his body remained unchanged.
At the same time, a peculiar-looking silver helmet that was encrusted with countless gems appeared over his head. The helmet definitely wasn't very pretty to look at, but as soon as it appeared, Tang Wulin's expression changed drastically.
"That's a piece of four-word battle armor!"
As a Divine Blacksmith, he was able to instantly assess the caliber of this piece of metal, and it was clear that this was a heavenly refined helmet!
This old man's martial soul was his brain! That was the information that Tang Wulin had just received.
The brain was a part of the body, so it could be said that this was a Titled Douluo that possessed a body martial soul.
His forte lay in his spiritual power, and with the enhancement he received from his martial soul, his spiritual power had most likely already reached the pinnacle of the Spirit Domain realm.
At that level, it would be virtually impossible to make further progress, and his way of battle was to use his incredible spiritual power in conjunction with some special secret techniques to manifest allies using his imagination.
That's right, that nine-headed snake and Duskgold Dreadclaw Bear were both manifestations of his imagination. This method of battle was definitely unique, and even Tang Wulin was quite surprised to hear this.
He had immediately told Lan Muzi about this, who had relayed the message to Tang Yinmeng through their special communication method.
Seeing as the elderly man battled with his imagination, Tang Yinmeng would be able to easily defeat him by attacking his body.
As such, once Tang Yinmeng got close to him, he didn't disguise his abilities any further and immediately released his martial soul and battle armor.
However, for some reason, he only had one piece of battle armor, which was that helmet.
"Welcome to my world," the old man said, and in the next instant, a vast expanse of silver light suddenly erupted from his head.
All of a sudden, the entire sky dimmed, and he was still clearly visible to everyone else, but Tang Yinmeng was completely unable to see him as at this moment, she had been transported into the world of her opponent's imagination.
This was an extremely far-fetched concept, but it was truly happening to her.
Through the enhancements of his four-word battle armor, the old man's spiritual power was infinitely approaching the Divine Origin realm. It could even be said that in this form, he was very likely to be the Soul Master with the most advanced spiritual power on the entire Douluo Continent.
This was his spiritual domain, and Tang Yinmeng seemed to have been completely immobilized within it.
Furthermore, Tang Wulin could clearly sense that her aura was on the wane.
"We concede this match," Tang Wulin quickly said.
Tang Yinmeng possessed a rare soundwave-based martial soul, but her spiritual power hadn't yet reached the Spirit Domain realm. In the face of this spiritual domain, which was infinitely approaching the Divine Origin realm, she simply had no chance.
This four-word helmet came as a huge surprise to Tang Wulin, and he could tell that it had transcended a seven-elemental tribulation, so it was quite exceptional even among pieces of four-word battle armor.
The light returned to the sky, and the elderly man withdrew his helmet before descending from above. Only after he had landed on the ground did Tang Yinmeng return to her senses, and an indignant look immediately appeared on her face. It was clear that she had not had an enjoyable experience in the old man's spiritual domain.
Lan Muzi immediately flew up to her and consoled her in a gentle voice.
After the first two matches, neither side had managed to gain an advantage.
"Three, two, one, begin!" This wasn't some official competition, and no one wanted to waste any time. The combatants for the third match rose up into the air, and on this occasion, Tang Wulin recognized the Spirit Pagoda representative.
His expression immediately darkened slightly upon seeing who it was.
Meanwhile, Yuanen Yehui had been sent out to represent Shrek Academy. After this period of rest, she had already recovered.
However, upon catching sight of the Spirit Pagoda representative, Tang Wulin immediately said, "We concede this match."
Yuanen Yehui's opponent was Gu Yuena's teacher, Leng Yaozhu, who was a Limit Douluo and also a four-word battle armor master.
Leng Yaozhu had been standing beside Qiangu Dongfeng this entire time, but her attention had been entirely focused on Yali. This pair of old love rivals never saw eye-to-eye with one another.
She was being sent out for the third match, and it was clear that this was a match that the Spirit Pagoda was determined to win.
Yuanen Yehui had improved significantly, and one piece of her battle armor had been upgraded to the four-word level, but there was no way she could contend with Leng Yaozhu.
Thus, Shrek Academy fell behind by one point.
The representative for the fourth match for Shrek Academy was Holy Spirit Douluo Yali, and she was facing a Hyper Douluo. Even though Yali was a healing system Soul Master, she had obtained her suit of four-word battle armor even prior to Leng Yaozhu, and if anyone thought that she wouldn't be good in a battle, then they would be dead wrong.
After all, she was the Limit Douluo that the Holy Spirit Cult feared the most.
Thus, Qiangu Dongfeng also chose to concede without any hesitation, and the match was tied again.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
