The most prominent transformation had been made by the wings on its back. Back when these wings had first appeared, they had been too small to support the Tyrant Dragon's enormous weight, so they could only assist it in jumping.
However, its wings were now at least five times as large as they had been in the past, and they draped over its body like a massive cape, giving it a very dashing appearance.
A wide smile appeared on Tang Wulin's face as he instructed, "Demolish this place!"
In terms of pure destructive power, even the Duskgold Dreadclaw Bear that was one of the current 10 Great Beasts couldn't compare with this Tyrant Dragon, which had evolved to close to the 100,000-year level.
The Tyrant Dragon let loose a roar of excitement as it swept its giant tail through the forest like an unstoppable bulldozer, instantly felling a huge cluster of trees, as well as three weaker soul beasts.
Light flashed from Tang Wulin's body again, and a golden figure shot forth.
The golden figure's body was over 30 meters in length and was covered in golden scales. It had a pair of wings on its back, and its eyes were flashing with an intelligent golden light.
Looking at the current Goldsong, no one would've been able to imagine that it had once been a defective martial soul.
Goldsong's figure hadn't changed much, but it was looking less and less like a snake, and much more like a dragon. In fact, it was very similar to Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon True Body.
Compared to the Holy Radiant Dragon, Goldsong possessed superior strength, and its aura was not inferior to the Tyrant Dragon's in the slightest.
It lowered its head to allow itself to be petted by Tang Wulin, who laid a hand on its head with a smile, and said, "You can go to the left."
Goldsong let loose a loud roar and instantly flapped its wings to rise up into the air, flying toward the left as it had been instructed.
Elsewhere, Imperial Sword Douluo Long Tianwu suddenly stopped in his tracks, and his brows furrowed slightly as he turned to Divine Sword Douluo Su Mengjun. "Did you hear that, Mengjun? Was that the voice of the Golden-eyed Black Dragon King or the Dark Demonic Dragon? Why did it sound like neither of them?"
Su Mengjun shook her head in response. "I'm not sure. The sound is coming from very far away, and you're right in that it doesn't sound like either of the dragons. What should we do?"
"Continue as planned. Our opponents must've already discovered that they can enhance themselves by killing the soul beasts in the Battle God Arena, so our objective will be to disrupt them. We'll kill the most powerful 10,000-year-old soul beasts on their side to enhance ourselves, then meet up with the others to end this battle as soon as possible."
The two Battle Gods were very fast, and they soon arrived at the river that split the Battle God Arena.
The river was around 100 meters wide, but it was no ordinary river in that it was inhabited by water-dwelling soul beasts, so it was possible to be attacked even while crossing the river.
The two 100,000-year-old soul beasts in the Battle God Arena were situated near this river, except one was on the left side closer to the opposing territory, while the other was on the right side very close to them.
100,000-year-old soul beasts were extremely fearsome, so they didn't dare to challenge one of them until they reunited with the other Battle Gods, thereby giving them an absolute advantage. As soon as they had sufficient time to slay this 100,000-year-old soul beast, they would do so right away to give themselves an even greater advantage.
The Battle Gods were very confident in this five-on-five match as they were far too familiar with this place. All of the Battle Gods had spent countless hours in this small plane, while Tang Wulin and the others had only been given one hour. This was the premium training ground of the Battle God Hall, and the Battle Gods would often spar and cultivate here.
On the other side of the river was a shadowy forest, and in contrast with the other parts of the forest, this area was black in color, giving off a very strange and ominous appearance.
Both Long Tianwu and Su Mengjun were aware that that was where one of the 100,000-year-old soul beasts was residing. The Golden-eyed Black Dragon King was on the other side of the river, while the Dark Demonic Dragon resided on this side.
Both of the Battle Gods were Titled Douluos, and Long Tianwu was already close to the Limit Douluo level, so it wouldn't be an issue for him to face the average 100,000-year-old soul beast.
However, dragon-type soul beasts were a different story. Both the Dark Demonic Dragon and Golden-eyed Black Dragon King stood at the very pinnacle of the soul beast world, and once they reached the 100,000-year level, they were very close in power to human Limit Douluos; even Limit Douluos may not be able to defeat them without using their battle armor.
In the distant past, humans had always struggled for survival under the reign of the soul beasts, and even with the emergence of Soul Masters, humans were still unable to truly contend with soul beasts. That only changed as soul technology bolstered the power of the entire human population, gradually allowing the human race to turn the tables, resulting in this current situation, where soul beasts were on the brink of extinction.
100,000-year level Golden-eyed Black Dragon Kings and Dark Demonic Dragons were considered to be extremely fearsome even in the heyday of the soul beasts, so they certainly weren't going to be easy prey.
Right as Long Tianwu and Su Mengjun were about to cross the river to disrupt Tang Wulin's group, a deafening dragon's roar suddenly rang out from the other side of the river.
The roar was filled with fury, and initially, it was very loud, but as it neared its conclusion, it suddenly turned into a strange strangled cry that was almost a sob.
Long Tianwu and Su Mengjun both exchanged a glance as they drew to an involuntary halt upon hearing this.
Back when they were outside the small plane, they were able to see through the light screen that Tang Wulin and the others had explored the plane while killing soul beasts, but during this entire process, they made sure to avoid the places where the two 100,000-year-old soul beasts were residing.
However, this was clearly the roar of the Dark Demonic Dragon, which meant that someone from Shrek Academy was attacking it. Why were they doing this? Did they have a death wish?
Even for the two of them, a price would have to be paid if they wanted to kill the Dark Demonic Dragon, and the battle would also be extremely taxing for them.
The battle had only just begun, and the two 100,000-year-old soul beasts were set to be in slumber, and only after around half an hour would they awaken before roaming through the forest. Tang Wulin and the others were clearly unaware of this, and this was one part of the home-court advantage the Battle Gods had up their sleeves.
The fact that the Dark Demonic Dragon had already awakened indicated that someone had to have encroached upon its territory and roused it from its slumber.
"Have they gone insane?" Su Mengjun said in an incredulous manner.
Long Tianwu's brows were tightly furrowed as he replied, "That Tang Wulin is not to be underestimated. After all, no one becomes the Tang Sect Master and Sea God's Pavilion Master at such a young age by accident. Theoretically speaking, he shouldn't be making such a simple error."
Su Mengjun asked, "What should we do? Should we go and take a look?"
Long Tianwu shook his head in response. "Let's wait for a while longer. This could quite possibly be a plot where they intentionally awaken the Dark Demonic Dragon, then retreat to a nearby area to ambush us. As such, if we go there now, we could be caught in a sneak attack. We both know how powerful the Dark Demonic Dragon is; even if they're attacking the Dark Demonic Dragon, there's no way they can take it down in a short time. If everything goes quiet, then that means they're planning an ambush. If the commotion continues, then that indicates that they really are battling the Dark Demonic Dragon, and we can lie in wait to benefit from the aftermath of that clash."Previous Chapter Next Chapter
