Ling Chen activated the effect of his domain again, and he appeared directly in front of Xu Lizhi. Xu Lizhi was still in the process of falling forward, so it looked like he was diving toward his opponent's chopsticks.
The Destructive Explosive Bun he released exploded, and the entire protective barrier tremored slightly.
All of a sudden, Xu Lizhi's body twisted around in a maneuver that seemed to be physically impossible, and he just barely glanced past the chopsticks.
A hint of surprise appeared on Ling Chen's face. He hadn't anticipated that Xu Lizhi would suddenly accelerate; was this an enhancement he was receiving from his martial soul? It most likely had something to do with the stuffed buns he had just eaten.
"That's enough fun and games," Xu Lizhi suddenly declared.
Ling Chen's heart jolted upon hearing this, and he immediately activated his domain to try and spring back in retreat. It was clearly a wise decision to retreat in the face of unknown danger.
However, to his astonishment, his Spatial Skip failed to take effect.
At the same time, a suit of yellow battle armor that was radiating faint rainbow light completely encased Xu Lizhi's entire body. Simultaneously, a yellow domain was released, which instantly devoured his entire domain.
This was domain suppression!
This was a four-word battle armor domain!
All of the Battle Gods immediately erupted into a frenzy.
Suits of incomplete and complete four-word battle armor were entirely different concepts! A suit of four-word battle armor could elevate a normal Titled Douluo to close to the Limit Douluo level; who could've imagined that a food system Soul Master could become a Titled Douluo and attain a suit of four-word battle armor? It simply didn't make sense!
Unbeknownst to them, Xu Lizhi's four-word battle armor was the first complete suit among all of Shrek’s Seven Monsters, and he was only able to use it after reaching the Titled Douluo level.
As a food system Soul Master, Xu Lizhi was the most vulnerable of Shrek’s Seven Monsters, so it was decided that his suit of four-word battle armor would be completed first to give him the best self-preservation assets.
A four-word battle armor domain was naturally able to completely dominate a three-word battle armor domain, so there was no way that Ling Chen's Spatial Skip would continue to work.
In the next instant, his world was plunged into complete darkness.
From the outside, everyone could see that a massive steamer with a diameter in excess of 50 meters had appeared at the center of the venue, while Ling Chen was nowhere to be seen.
A string of violent explosions rang out, and bursts of devastating destructive aura battered the protective barrier incessantly.
This was Xu Lizhi's martial soul true body, Steamer!
Furthermore, it was enhanced by his suit of four-word battle armor!
Guan Yue finally understood where this persistent sense of foreboding in his heart was coming from. Not only had Ling Chen not tricked Xu Lizhi, he was the one who had been tricked instead!
With a full suit of four-word battle armor, he would most likely be able to defeat even higher ranked Battle Gods.
After witnessing Xu Lizhi's four-word battle armor, all of the Battle Gods were forced to reevaluate Tang Wulin's group.
In reality, Tang Wulin felt like this had been the perfect opponent for Xu Lizhi. Even though he was already a Titled Douluo with a suit of four-word battle armor, he was still a support system Soul Master, and his eighth and ninth soul skills were both support system ones that couldn't enhance his offensive prowess by much.
As such, if he were to encounter a more powerful Battle God who was able to force their way out of his steamer, then he would be in some trouble. In that case, he would be forced to outlast his opponent in a grueling battle, and that clearly wouldn't be ideal given that there were still many more levels to be conquered.
The string of explosions lasted over 10 seconds before the steamer was abruptly opened, and Ling Chen was tossed out like a rucksack.
He was already unconscious, and his entire body had been stained a purplish-black color.
The steamer vanished amid a flash of light, and Xu Lizhi reappeared with a smile on his face. His battle armor had been withdrawn, and his face was slightly pale.
At his current cultivation rank, it was still quite strenuous for him to use a suit of four-word battle armor, and he was only able to do so due to his abundant soul power and exceptional foundation.
Thus, the second victory was secured.
A faint smile appeared on Tang Wulin's face, and he gave Xu Lizhi a huge hug.
Xu Lizhi chuckled, "He wanted to eat me, so I steamed him!"
Xie Xie praised in a genuine voice, "You're becoming more and more impressive, fatty."
Xu Lizhi glared at him, and asked, "What you're going to say next is 'but you're still not quite on my level', right?"
Xie Xie immediately nodded in response, upon which everyone rolled their eyes at him, and even Ye Xinglan's gaze was drawn toward him.
Xie Xie instantly became a lot more tame in the face of Ye Xinglan's stern gaze. The two people he feared the most among Shrek's Seven Monsters were Yuanen Yehui and Ye Xinglan. He wasn't afraid of Tang Wulin as they were essentially a pair of brothers, but those two women were not to be messed with!
Thus, two victories had been secured, both of which were in crushing fashion.
Had the four-word battle armor been the difference? That could be argued, but at the same time, Xie Xie and Xu Lizhi had displayed astonishing power.
A four-word battle armor master would always be at the peak of the Soul Master world, and any power that could recruit a four-word battle armor master would be boosted significantly.
In the past, Shrek Academy only had two four-word battle armor masters and only two Limit Douluos, in addition to the two Limit Douluos from the Tang Sect. Four four-word battle armor masters was already an astonishing lineup, yet a new one had just been thrown into the mix, and he was so young as well.
With a Divine Blacksmith among its ranks, Shrek Academy would be able to essentially mass-produce four-word battle armor masters given sufficient time! This was the most shocking thing to the Battle Gods.
Guan Yue couldn't help but lament the federation's idiocy. They had completely misjudged Shrek Academy and the Tang Sect. With one person leading both of those superpowers, it could be said that this was a single unified superpower organization.
With a Divine Blacksmith thrown into the mix, their resurgence was something that the federal government could no longer repress.
Tang Wulin and everyone else had come to the Battle God Hall precisely to illustrate this point. Guan Yue was naturally aware that the federation had tried to force the Tang Sect's hand, and now, it was being met by retaliation from both the Tang Sect and Shrek Academy. Furthermore, none of the Limit Douluos had been deployed, so the blame could be entirely pushed onto the younger generation. Thus, even if they were to lose, the consequences wouldn't be dire.
However, looking at things now, would the Battle God Hall really be able to defeat them?
Right at this moment, another person emerged from Tang Wulin's group; it was none other than Stargod Douluo Ye Xinglan.
Ye Xinglan was extremely beautiful, but her expression was very cold, and her eyes were filled with single-minded focus. Her long hair was arranged into a neat and tidy ponytail, and as she emerged from the group, she was like a sharp sword being pulled out of its scabbard.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
