Everyone was completely flabbergasted! 4,000 points of spiritual power placed one at the pinnacle of the Spirit Sea realm. After reaching that level, they'd have a chance at making a breakthrough to the Spirit Abyss realm in the future!
What was the Spirit Abyss realm?
At that realm, one's spiritual power would become an abyssal prison. If his spirit were the world, then the upper boundary would be heaven while the lower boundary would be hell! This was the Spirit Abyss realm, the realm that was commonly referred to as the limit for a normal human's spiritual power! With this level of spiritual power, one would be able to fuse with any level of spirit souls; even orange and red ones.
However, each person could only fuse with one orange and one red soul spirit, and after fusing with one of those two types of soul spirits, one's capacity to fuse with other soul spirits would revert back to that of a being with spiritual power at the Spirit Sea realm. If no red or orange soul spirits had been fused with, then the upper limit for the number of soul spirits of other levels that could be fused with was five. Generally speaking, the Spirit Abyss realm as the limit of human spiritual power.
However, lights were still being switched on at an even pace, which indicated that Tang Wulin still hasn't reached his limits.
"Beep!" A sound suddenly came from the machine. Immediately thereafter, all of the lights from before were snuffed out at once. Just as everyone had thought that this was the end, a purple light was suddenly switched on off to the side.
"Spirit Abyss realm!" Wu Zhangkong exclaimed with an astonished look in his eyes. Even now, his spiritual power still hadn't reached the Spirit Abyss realm!
What was the Spirit Abyss realm? It was like the sound barrier. Being above the Spirit Abyss realm and being below it were two entirely different concepts.
As such, the fact that Tang Wulin had made a breakthrough to the Spirit Abyss realm without special cultivation focused on spiritual power enhancement was downright incredible!
One yellow light was switched on after another, and the test continued.
No one was astonished anymore as they were all feeling slightly numb. Tang Wulin was a rank 47 Soul Ancestor, yet his spiritual power had reached the Spirit Abyss realm. Even spirit type Soul Masters may not be able to get to that level at this soul power rank!
They had all guessed that Gu Yue's spiritual power had most likely already reached the Spirit Abyss realm, but it had never been verified. However, Gu Yue's martial soul had the ability of elemental control, which required her to possess an extremely high level of spiritual power.
In contrast, Tang Wulin was an assault system Soul Master, and at a stretch, one could argue that he was also a control system Soul Master as well. So why had his spiritual power reached such an insane level? Everyone was cultivating the Purple Demon Eyes; why was there such a massive disparity?
Lights were still being switched on without pause. At this point, Tang Wulin's spiritual power had reached more than double that of Xu Xiaoyan's. Even Wu Zhangkong was completely rooted to the spot now. He'd never encountered such a situation during all his time at the academy. In the inner court, there were extremely few, perhaps even no disciples with spiritual power that outstripped Tang Wulin's.
According to Wu Zhangkong's knowledge, the one with the most spiritual power in the academy was naturally none other than the current master of the Sea God's Pavilion, the Limit Douluo, Atlas Douluo Yun Ming.
His spiritual power had already reached the legendary Divine Origin realm, and he was the only one in Shrek Academy to have reached that level.
Aside from him, even Light Dark Douluo Long Yeyue's spiritual power was only at the Spirit Domain realm.
The Spirit Abyss realm was only one step away from the Spirit Domain realm! 20,000 points of spiritual power was the lower limit to reach the Spirit Domain realm.
Tang Wulin's spiritual power had already reached in excess of 7,000 points, and he was only 18 years of age. This meant that he would be guaranteed to at least be able to attempt breakthroughs to the Spirit Domain realm in the future. Calling him a prodigy simply wouldn't do him justice at this point.
During the earlier phases of one's cultivation, the effects of having high spiritual power weren't all that prominent for Soul Masters, unless they possessed martial souls that required high levels of spiritual power to support. However, after reaching the Titled Douluo level, spiritual power would begin to play a pivotal role. If a Titled Douluo wanted to advance even further, then they would have to attain immense spiritual power. The higher the level of their spiritual power, the greater the chance that they'd be able to progress in their cultivation.
Limit Douluos had to have Divine Origin realm spiritual power, and this was a major obstacle that stood in the way of many Hyper Douluos.
Light Dark Douluo Long Yeyue hadn't been able to become a Limit Douluo precisely because she wasn't able to make a breakthrough to the Divine Origin realm.
In this current world, the number of people with Divine Origin realm spiritual power could be counted on a single hand.
Of course, there was a higher level, which was the legendary Godking realm, but no one had reached that level ever since this world had lost connection with the Divine Realm. It was said that unless one truly became a god, there was no way for their spiritual power to reach that realm.
The rate at which the lights were switching on was finally beginning to decelerate, indicating that the test was about to reach its conclusion. After the 28th yellow light was turned on, everything finally stopped.
One purple light and 28 yellow lights.
"7,800 points of spiritual power."
Everyone felt their throats ran dry as they processed this statistic. 7,800!
This was beyond incredible!
Everyone knew what it meant to have 7,800 points of spiritual power; he had reached the Spirit Abyss realm! And he hadn't just barely reached it, either; he wasn't far away from the mid-Spirit Abyss realm, which required a minimum of 10,000 points of spiritual power.
Tang Wulin couldn't hear any sound from the outside world as he was wearing a helmet, but following a notification tone from the machine, he was prompted to remove his helmet. He looked around at all of his friend's dumbstruck faces, and a befuddled look appeared on his face. "What's wrong?"
"7,800!" Xie Xie exclaimed as an explanation.
Tang Wulin faltered slightly before giving a nonchalant response. "Oh."
"Oh?! That's it? Aren't you stunned, Boss? Your spiritual power has reached 7,800 points! You're at the Spirit Abyss realm!" Xie Xie said in an excited manner.
Tang Wulin replied, "Gu Yue reached the Spirit Abyss realm long ago; what's so impressive about this?"
Everyone was rendered completely speechless.
Wu Zhangkong appraised him with an intense gaze. "Did you already know that you'd made a breakthrough to this realm?"
Tang Wulin nodded. "I seem to have felt something when I made the breakthrough. It was as if the entire world had become clearer, and my sensory abilities were drastically enhanced. It was as if I'd pushed open a door and entered another world."
Wu Zhangkong faltered slightly upon hearing this before nodding as he said, "Thank you."
Tang Wulin's insights were undoubtedly going to be very helpful to him.
Tang Wulin asked, "What's next?"
"Let's test your strength," Wu Zhangkong replied. He remained completely expressionless, but the emotions deep within his eyes indicated that he wasn't as calm as he looked.
The strength testing device was far more massive than Tang Wulin had imagined; it looked like a small mountain. There were a total of 30 striking spots, all of which were of different shapes and sizes.
Wu Zhangkong explained, "The strength test is an all-round test, and the tests can be very specific. For example, you can test the powers of your palms, your fists, your shoulder barge, and even your battle armors and weapons. I suggest you do the punching test, then repeat the test after putting on your battle armor, and that should give you a good gauge of your current strength level."
Tang Wulin had been under his tutelage for many years, so he understood Tang Wulin's abilities better than anyone else.
"Alright," Tang Wulin agreed.
Everyone reflexively took a few steps backward. Compared to his spiritual power, everyone was undoubtedly more curious about his strength. Even Yuanen Yehui's immense strength was considered to be too feeble in Tang Wulin's eyes; just how freakishly strong was he?
The punching target appeared. Tang Wulin did a few stretches, and his blood essence power surged forth, instantly warming up his entire body. Faint golden light began to emanate from within his eyes.
Following a loud instruction from Wu Zhangkong, Tang Wulin turned around 90 degrees before unleashing a lightning-fast punch with his right fist!
"Boom!" The entire target quaked violently, and even the entire mountainous machine tremored dramatically a few times before coming to a rest.
"Right fist strength: 104,000 kilograms." The electronic voice revealed the answer to everyone.
Even Tang Wulin was rooted to the spot upon hearing this. 104,000kg? What kind of concept was that?
One ton was 1,000 kilograms, so this meant his punch packed 104 tons of force.
Deathly silence ensued, and even Wu Zhangkong was rendered completely speechless.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
