Chapter 1679: Chopsticks Martial Soul

Ling Chen immediately drew closer and thrust his short sticks toward Xu Lizhi's chest.

Was it already over?

Just as most of the Battle Gods thought that Xu Lizhi would lose this match even before he had released his martial soul, a ball of light suddenly began to glow in front of Xu Lizhi's chest.

A resounding clang rang out, and it was Ling Chen that was forced back. He felt as if his short sticks had struck an impregnable fortress. A smile appeared on Xu Lizhi's face as a string of soul rings emerged from beneath his feet, and at the same time, a huge cuirass was revealed to have appeared in front of his chest.

This was a piece of battle armor, and it was shaped... like a stuffed bun!

Indeed, this stuffed-bun-shaped cuirass was quite comical in appearance, but the faint rainbow light it was radiating clearly indicated that it was a piece of four-word battle armor!

How was it possible that both members of Shrek's Seven Monsters who had appeared in battle thus far possessed pieces of four-word battle armor? Since when was it that four-word battle armor had become so common?

One had to realize that Zhen Hua was essentially retired from heavenly refinement.

In addition to the pieces of four-word battle armor displayed by Shrek’s Seven Monsters during Shrek Academy's enrollment day, it was clear that the rumors about Tang Wulin being a Divine Blacksmith were true.

Due to his physical health, Zhen Hua's heavenly refinement success rate was very low, and he barely ever took heavenly refinement jobs now. Thus, the emergence of a new and outrageously young Divine Blacksmith was undoubtedly going to shake the entire Soul Master world.

To put it in simpler terms, if Tang Wulin were willing to make some concessions, they would even agree to protect him and escort him safely out of the Central Legion.

No one wanted to offend a Divine Blacksmith, especially high-grade Soul Masters. After all, who didn't want a suit of four-word battle armor? Four-word battle armor masters were definitely the most powerful beings in the Soul Master world.

Even though Guan Yue was only a quasidemigod, he would be able to contend with a quasigod provided that his opponent didn't have a suit of four-word battle armor, and that was sufficient testament to just how incredible suits of four-word battle armor were.

"Don't judge a bun by its folds!" Xu Lizhi finally had a chance to release his martial soul. A total of nine soul rings emerged from beneath his feet, all of which were black! 

Xu Lizhi had consumed the Chaotic Element Immortal Herb, thereby disqualifying him from fusing with a 100,000-year-old soul spirit, but the benefits brought to him by the Chaotic Element Immortal Herb were definitely not inferior to those provided by a 100,000-year-old soul spirit.

That's right, Xu Lizhi was already a Titled Douluo. He had made the breakthrough not long ago, and this was made even more extraordinary by the fact that he was a food system Soul Master.

Generally speaking, it was countless times more difficult for a food system Soul Master to become a Titled Douluo. If it weren't for the consumption of the Chaotic Element Immortal Herb allowing him to reach full mastery of his Mysterious Heaven Method, there was no way he would've been able to reach this level.

The foundation behind power was always laid from sufficient resources.

After quickly chanting his incantation, Xu Lizhi summoned three stuffed buns and stuffed them into his mouth before Ling Chen could attack again. He then glowered at Ling Chen as if to say: "You're a scam artist!"

Instead of immediately springing into action again, Ling Chen was appraising Xu Lizhi's cuirass with a hint of envy in his eyes. "Four-word battle armor really is different! Also, I never lied to you, little fatso; my Douluo Title really is Gluttony, and I really am a huge fan of food. Otherwise, my figure wouldn't be like this. Take a look at my martial soul; these are chopsticks! Haha, chopsticks are most definitely related to food, so don't say I lied to you!"

Chopsticks?

Tang Wulin and the others were left speechless upon hearing this. There were countless types of martial souls, so it wasn't a surprise that a chopsticks martial soul existed, but Ling Chen was most likely the only Soul Master in history to have cultivated chopsticks to the Titled Douluo level.

Xu Lizhi choked down a Recovery Pork Bun, Agility Mini Soup Bun, and Bloodthirsty Red Bean Bun, then said, "Come at me!"

Ling Chen smiled, and replied, "Sure. Let me show you my battle armor." He wasn't going to make the same mistake as Jiang Zhanheng; even against a food system Soul Master, he had to take his opponent seriously.

Agility attack system Soul Masters were mostly quite lackluster in defense, so he had to be extra careful.

A layer of pink light radiated from his body, and a suit of thin and light battle armor quickly appeared.

This was a pink suit of battle armor, and in conjunction with his rotund frame, it created quite an... interesting package.

Ling Chen was completely unfazed by this, and he summoned his battle armor domain, upon which a layer of pink light also appeared over the chopsticks in his hands.

"The name of my battle armor domain is 'Spatial Skip'!"

Xu Lizhi was immediately struck by a sense of foreboding upon hearing this. In the next instant, pink light had already spread over the entire venue.

Ling Chen was very smart and was renowned for his ability to think during battles. He had noticed that Xie Xie's suit of four-word battle armor was incomplete, and up to this point, Xu Lizhi had only released a cuirass as well, which meant that his suit of four-word battle armor was most likely also incomplete.

That made sense, considering how difficult it was to complete a suit of four-word battle armor. Not only was a Divine Blacksmith required, extensive efforts from ninth-rank mecha makers would also be needed, not to mention that this was a very time-consuming process.

Incomplete suits of battle armor didn't possess domains, so even though individual pieces of four-word battle armor were quite powerful, an incomplete suit was inferior to a complete suit of three-word battle armor when the bigger picture was concerned.

Ling Chen was taking Xu Lizhi very seriously, and he had released his battle armor domain from the get-go.

Judging from the domain's name, it was quite apparent what its effect would be. He was intentionally informing Xu Lizhi of this in order to exert more psychological pressure upon him.

The pink light had already encompassed the entire venue, so it would be impossible for Xu Lizhi to escape out of this domain.

In the next instant, Ling Chen vanished amid a flash of light, then suddenly reappeared in the distance.

"Isn't my domain fun?" He didn't possess any spatial abilities, but through the use of his domain, he could elevate his speed to the very max, making it look as if he could teleport within the scope of his domain.

After another flash of light, Ling Chen appeared behind Xu Lizhi before thrusting his chopsticks toward the back of Xu Lizhi's neck.

Xu Lizhi instinctively stumbled forward while twisting around and thrusting his hands backward, releasing two purplish-black stuffed buns.
