Chapter 633 - Seven Treasures Glazed Pagoda
As for the other two kings of the Monster Academy, they were both agility-type soul masters. No one knew why they didn’t participate in the two-on-twos.
If Tang Wulin were to ask Long Yue this question, he would tell him that only the top three spots were meaningful. He had arranged for three teams to compete because he was sure that three teams would be enough. The one-on-one competition was a demonstration of personal strength, and naturally, everyone who could participate would participate.
Hua Lantang narrowed his eyes and looked at Tang Wulin. He was a very stable person. He had watched Tang Wulin's previous games and discussed with Su Mu the abilities of this young opponent.
He and Ye Zhi had been partners for many years, and their teamwork was tremendous. They were called the Power Couple in the Monster Academy. Let me avenge you, Su Mu, thought Hua Lantang
Ye Zhi's focus was on the other opponent – she was staring at Gu Yue. They had some knowledge of the skills of the other students from the Shrek Academy, but they knew practically nothing about the girl standing beside Tang Wulin. I’ve only seen her compete in the two-on-twos, and in her previous matches, she did nothing but assist a few times. In most matches, Tang Wulin defeated his opponent alone. But I don’t think the Shrek Academy will randomly choose a student to participate in such an important tournament. Based on the fact that she can team up with the captain of the Shrek Academy group, her power must be extraordinary.
Fang’er, in a long white dress, was sitting at a VIP table. In front of her stood several soul screens. She had a soul headset microphone on her head and was staring at the screens with burning eyes.
“Welcome, everyone, to the Continental Young Elites Tournament. My name is Fang’er, and I will be commentating on this two-on-two match today!” Her voice was amplified by the microphone so she could be heard in every corner of the stadium.
“I believe everyone is very interested in this upcoming match. Hua Lantang and Ye Zhi of the Monster Academy versus Tang Wulin and Gu Yue of the Shrek Academy.
“As for Hua Lantang and Ye Zhi, I’m sure you all know their strength. They are both members of the Monster Eight Kings of the Monster Academy. Hua Lantang is called Wolf King. His martial soul is the Dragon Wolf, the most powerful kind of wolf. He has two different bloodlines: dragon and wolf. Legend has it that a dragon was attracted by a wolf king and had a relationship with it, thus giving birth to the dragon wolves. This kind of martial soul is unique to the Star Luo continent and it’s very powerful.
“Ye Zhi is also known as Tower King; her martial soul is the legendary Seven Treasures Glazed Pagoda, which can greatly enhance one’s abilities. The Seven Treasures Glazed Pagoda was the most powerful support-type martial soul 20,000 years ago. She and Hua Lantang make a great team; their outstanding performance won them the second place in the last tournament.
“As for their opponent, Tang Wulin, he is quite the topic of conversation these days. In terms of soul power, he is weaker than Wolf King Hua Lantang. But since we still don’t know what his martial soul is, the outcome of this fight is anybody’s guess.
“What interests me more is Tang Wulin’s partner. This girl named Gu Yue has been fighting beside Tang Wulin in the two-on-two competition. She has a fire-type martial soul, I think, since I’ve seen her use a fireball in a match. Other than that, we don’t know anything else about her.
“I hope Hua Lantang and Ye Zhi will learn from Su Mu’s mistakes and go all out to secure the win.”
The contestants couldn’t hear Fang’er’s commentary because of the barrier. Now Tang Wulin only had eyes for his rivals.
“Three, two, one, begin!” the judge declared.
The instant the match began, Tang Wulin and Hua Lantang charged towards each other at almost the same time.
Two golden soul rings appeared around Tang Wulin. A flash of brilliant light, and he activated his Golden Dragon Body.
By then, five soul rings were revolving around Hua Lantang, four purple and one black. His body was changing rapidly as he rushed. He instantly became more than two meters tall, his muscles swelled, and it was not hair, but purple oval scales that were coming out of his skin. His head became a bit like a wolf's, with his mouth protruding forward and his fangs white and sharp. As his hands transformed into a pair of razor-sharp claws, his speed suddenly increased.
He was an agility-type, as well as an assault-type. His speed was definitely comparable to that of an agility-type soul master.
Ye Zhi and Gu Yue were also making their first move.
As Gu Yue waved her right hand, a large fireball with a diameter of over a foot flew into the sky and shot towards Ye Zhi, who was standing in the distance.
Ye Zhi’s reaction surprised everyone. Her eyes lit up, and then she thrust out both hands, pieces of armor shining seven-colored light flying out of her storage rings and back onto her body.
In an instant, Ye Zhi was clad in her colorful armor, shrouded by a seven-colored barrier of light.
She had put on her one-word battle armor without hesitation.
The fireball landed on the seven-colored barrier and exploded into a scatter of flames. However, the explosion only caused ripples to form on the surface of the barrier.
Suddenly, a seven-story pagoda about a foot high appeared in her hand while five purple soul rings started circling around her.
The legend about the Seven Treasures Glazed Pagoda was well-known on the Douluo Continent as well as on the Star Luo Continent. It had once been the martial soul of one certain member – a teammate of the god of the sea, Tang San, and the Soft Bone Douluo, Xiao Wu – of the first generation of the Shrek Seven Monsters. She had been a powerful support-type soul master and had finally upgraded the Seven Treasures Glazed Pagoda to the Nine Treasures Glazed Pagoda. She had become a god afterwards.
She has the same martial soul as a god, Gu Yue thought. Even on the Douluo Continent, no one possesses this powerful martial soul.
“Seven Treasures Glazed Pagoda, lend me strength and lend me speed!” Ye Zhi shouted. And then two beams of light shot out of the bottom two stories of the pagoda and landed on Hua Lantang.
All of a sudden, Hua Lantang’s body swelled up again, and his speed surged, casting after images. By then, he was already upon Tang Wulin, slashing down his claws quick as lightning.
The reason why the Seven Treasures Glazed Pagoda was awful powerful was because it could enhance abilities. The first soul ring was able to enhance abilities by 20%, the second soul ring, 30%, and the third soul ring, 40%. One more soul ring meant another 10%. So the five-ringed soul master, Ye Zhi, had upped Hua Lantang’s strength and speed by 60%.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
