The reason why both sides were still ascending even after reaching such a high altitude was because they didn't want their clash to affect everyone on the ground below.
However, the parents and students on the ground were rather displeased as it was already too far away for them to be able to see anything clearly.
They had been elated at the prospect of being able to watch such an epic clash, but their excitement was quickly turning into anxiety.
However, right at this moment, two giant screens were rolled out of Shrek Academy, and the screens had been switched to the two channels that were offering live broadcasts of the clash. With their long-distance cameras, an extremely clear image was depicted on the screens.
"According to our altimeter, both sides have already reached altitudes over 1,600 meters, and they're still continuing to ascend. Are they competing to see who can fly the highest before the match officially begins? As we all know, the higher the altitude, the more sparse the air and the elemental particles are going to be, and this is very detrimental to all Soul Masters. However, it seems that powerful beings of their caliber are no longer restricted by such factors. I assume the main reason behind their decision to fly so high is so that they can ensure the safety of everyone on the ground below. Pilot, let's fly a bit further away as well; I don't want to be swept up in their clash."
"We're already over two kilometers away; if we go any further, we might not be able to capture clear footage," the pilot replied.
"It's alright, safety should be our number one priority." The host was a huge fan of Soul Masters, and even though she wasn't a Soul Master herself, she had a very clear understanding of just how destructive Soul Masters could be.
Tang Wulin's All or Nothing had left her with a very deep impression, and she was certain that the power of that attack had exceeded the power of the average ninth-grade soul missile.
She was in the prime of her life and currently a very popular host, and she certainly had no plans to perish here when everything was going so well for her.
However, not everyone was as safety-conscious as she was; there were currently two other planes situated around 1,500 meters away from the site of the battle, and they felt this to be an absolutely safe distance. Generally speaking, even a ninth-grade soul missile's destructive scope only spanned a radius of 1,500 meters; surely a clash between Soul Masters couldn't compare with that.
After rising to an altitude of around 2,000 meters, both sides finally stopped. At this altitude, the air temperature was far lower than it was on the ground, yet at the same time, the sunlight seemed to be particularly scorching on their skin.
Both sides quickly got into their formations.
The Spirit Pagoda representatives were led by the trio from the Qiangu Family, with Qiangu Dieting at the very center, and his two sons on either side of him. Behind them were Leng Yaozhu and the Bai Sisters, while the elderly man with the brain martial soul brought up the rear.
This was a three, three, one formation. There was a majority of assault system Soul Masters among Limit Douluos, and this was reflected by the Spirit Pagoda representatives, which had an entire team of assault system Soul Masters aside from the elderly man. As such, the formation that they adopted wasn't all that important.
As for the Shrek Academy representatives, they were led by Tang Wulin, and on either side of him stood the middle-aged man and elderly man who were unfamiliar to the Spirit Pagoda. Behind this trio were Light Dark Douluo Long Yeyue, Holy Spirit Douluo Yali, and that hideous man who was also unknown to the Spirit Pagoda.
Xu Xiaoyan brought up the rear, and just like the Spirit Pagoda, they had also adopted a three, three, one formation.
Tang Wulin hovered in mid-air like an immovable mountain as he held his Golden Dragon Spear in one hand.
He and Xu Xiaoyan were the two youngest Shrek Academy representatives, and they could be extremely proud of themselves for being able to participate in such an epic clash at such a young age.
Qiangu Dongfeng was looking on with a cold light in his eyes. He wasn't thinking about how to win this match; he was thinking about how he could take advantage of this opportunity to kill Tang Wulin.
This young man posed far too much a threat, and if he were to constantly stay in Shrek Academy, it would be very difficult to kill him.
Shrek Academy's new defense system was able to instantly fell a divine-grade mecha, and that had truly stunned Qiangu Dongfeng. As such, this was the best opportunity to "accidentally" put an end to Tang Wulin's life.
However, this was clearly not going to be an easy task. With Yali present, she would be able to save Tang Wulin as long as he wasn't instantly killed.
Tang Wulin raised his Golden Dragon Spear and swiped it through the air, then made an inviting hand gesture.
In response, Qiangu Dieting took a step forward, and an indescribably fearsome aura immediately erupted from his body.
In that instant, it was as if he had transformed into a gargantuan pillar that was determined to pierce through the earth and impale the entire heavens. In the face of his formidable aura, even the spectators were struck by a sense of fear.
Almost all of the live broadcasts were temporarily cut off as Qiangu Dieting's immense aura was affecting the magnetic fields.
The hosts of the channels broadcasting this match were stunned to see this, and the planes that were situated no more than 1,500 kilometers away immediately fled further into the distance as quickly as they could.
This aura was far too fearsome, and it was only coming from a single person!
Standing directly across from Qiangu Dieting, Tang Wulin was facing this aura head-on, and he felt as if he were being crushed like an insignificant ant.
In response to this enormous pressure, an unyielding will erupted within his heart, and he unconsciously let loose a long roar.
At the same time, a giant golden projection appeared behind him, and his blood essence erupted forth in a frenzy as his aura began to elevate at an incredible speed.
This was a result of the combination between his Golden Dragon King bloodline and his own unyielding nature.
In that instant, Tang Wulin was able to withstand the fearsome aura of a quasigod, albeit just barely.
Yuanen Zhentian was already preparing to step in, and he couldn't help but give a nod of approval upon seeing this.
As a Hyper Douluo, Tang Wulin had achieved something that even many Limit Douluos would've been unable to; he truly had an immeasurable future ahead of him.
All of a sudden, Tang Wulin flapped his golden dragon wings and flew directly toward Qiangu Dieting.
"Good heavens! Tang Wulin is taking the initiative to unleash the first attack, and his target is one of the most powerful beings on the entire continent, the quasigod Qiangu Dieting! Is this a brave and confident strike or one that's completely suicidal?" The hosts were all given quite a fright upon seeing this. Wasn't this a team battle? Why was Tang Wulin charging ahead alone?
Surely there was no way that this could possibly end well for him!
A hint of killing intent flashed through Qiangu Dieting's eyes. He had been paying close attention to Tang Wulin during the previous clashes, and the more he saw, the more alarmed he became.
This young man didn't just possess incredible power and potential; what was even more important was that he had intelligence and cunning to match.
He had lured Qiangu Dongfeng into a one-on-one match, then used a security guard to insult him. Even though he had to concede that match, it prevented Qiangu Dongfeng from being able to participate in the two-on-two matches.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
