Chapter 622 - The Special Effect of the Left Claw
Tang Wulin jerked back his Golden Dragon Claw. It didn’t take him long to figure out that his left claw’s special effect was tearing.
His right claw's talons were cone-shaped, but the ones on his left claw were sharp, like the fangs of a tiger.
The left claw had a striking resemblance in appearance to the right one, but their special effects were widely different. They were both very powerful though.
He would have roared like a lion, were he not in a hotel at this hour of the night. With golden scales clothing his chest, back, shoulders, and arms, he felt wonderfully strong.
He was already looking forward to the changes brought forth by breaking the sixth seal. Once I break it, I think I’ll have another golden blood essence soul ring.
He brought the two claws together. When they met, there was a “ding” sound that was so refreshing, and with it a golden circle of light. The diamond-shaped scales stood up, razor-sharp tips pointing out.
Tang Wulin brought the scales back down with his mind. What just happened?
He reversed the flow of his blood essence, and immediately two golden soul rings appeared around him. He activated Golden Dragon Body.
Since he was naked – he had just taken a shower – he could have a good look at himself.
The Golden Dragon Body could create scales to protect him as well, but those scales were not real; they were more like a layer of energy. Tang Wulin could even cover his face with those fake scales if he wanted.
However, the scales brought about by absorbing the energy of the Golden Dragon King were genuine scales growing from his body. They were thick and solid. After he activated Golden Dragon Body, it was hard to tell which was which, but clearly the part covered by both the real scales and the fake ones was the strongest.
He clashed the two claws together again, this time a little harder. He had deduced from his first experiment that his two claws wouldn’t function on each other.
Ding! Once more a golden circle of light appeared, enlarged, and faded.
Tang Wulin saw more clearly this time. The scales sprang up again. It seemed he could use them to attack, like a hedgehog. The scales created by the Golden Dragon Body also stood up a little, but they were of little use except for providing protection. The “ding” sound was able to refresh him, making him more focused. It might not be a blood essence soul skill, but it was as good as a normal soul skill, if not better.
Tang Wulin was euphoric. Looks like the Golden Dragon King bloodline is full of potential!
The thought brought a big smile to his face. He lifted his claws up, looking at the spiral lines on the nails, feeling the tremendous strength inside them. It feels so good!
Then he put his arms out to the sides. After a succession of cracking and popping sounds, his hands returned to normal, the scales retracted.
Now his height was already comparable to that of an adult. It seemed he had become more shredded – eight-pack, muscled shoulders and back. Every muscle of his was beautiful, firm, and elastic, containing explosive power. His long and strong legs were a perfect work of art.
Just you wait, Crazy Long. I’ll show you what I’m made of.
After a few days of competition, the passion of Star Luo City had been ignited. The elimination matches were cruel. For the soul masters who had been eliminated in the first round, the tournament was already over, and for those who were over 18 years old, this was the last time they got to participate in the Continental Young Elites Tournament.
Nobody wanted to leave, not even those whose fights had been over. They wanted to see the level of their peers power-wise.
Ling Wuxie was one of them. He was filled with remorse for getting knocked out in the very first round. As a one-word battle armor master and a five-ringed Soul King, he had planned to breach the top 32 in one-on-one combat.
His teacher didn’t come down hard on him, but he was well aware that the main reason for his defeat had been because he had taken his opponent too lightly. His explosive power and subsequent combos kept me too busy to launch a counterattack. If I had brought out the full capabilities of my battle armor, I’d probably win. After all, it can amplify my abilities, even though it’s not a very powerful one-word battle armor. Damn it! If only I could go back in time…
After several days of pain and discouragement, he had finally pulled himself together. After all, he was one of the few people who had become a one-word battle armor master at such a young age; his ability to handle frustration was superior to his peers.
Stand straight and hold your head up high! He told himself. That kid is a power-assault-type. He has staggering attack and defense power, and sharp reflexes. I don’t think all his opponents will take him lightly. I’m looking forward to seeing him get eliminated.
Today would kick off the first day of the second round of the one-on-one battles. The first round had eliminated half of the competitors, so the second round would most likely end in two days.
Ling Wuxie came to the Grand Star Luo Stadium early in the morning. Outside the stadium hung 16 huge screens, displaying the matchups.
In order to ensure fairness, a special soul system was used to randomly match competitors up.
Where is he? Ling Wuxie thought, eyes sweeping over the screens. His name is Tang Wulin, if I remember correctly. His teacher had secured a ticket for him.
After quite a while, he still hadn’t found his name, as there were too many participants.
Suddenly, something caused a ruckus in the crowd outside the stadium.
On one screen, after a name, Ling Wuxie saw a golden emblem.
It was round, with a hideously enlarged mouth.
