Tang Wulin stepped forward and sprang up into the air. He didn't unleash his martial soul as he knew that it wouldn't help him much in this battle after witnessing his opponent's ability to transform into mist. Seeing as that was the case, it was better to refrain from unleashing his martial soul to conserve his soul power.
Tang Wulin threw a punch in mid-air, and a dragon's roar erupted from his body again. This was a very simple punch with no extra frills nor fancy tricks, but in the instant that it was unleashed, his entire body was unfurled, striking one with the impression that he was a giant dragon that had just awakened from his slumber.
His entire body was thrown behind this punch, as his right fist hurtled through the air, an area with a diameter of three meters around him turned into a dazzling golden color. In the next instant, his entire body suddenly flashed, and a golden streak of light that was several dozens of meters long appeared in the air.
The golden streak of light vanished almost as soon as it appeared, and the Evil Soul Master was able to transform his body into a cloud of mist again, but even so, he still let loose a cry of anguish. After he reverted back to his human form, his body swayed, and he plummeted to the ground.
Golden Dragon Takes Flight!
This was a technique unleashed by compressing his bloodline power to a certain point before releasing all of that power in an instantaneous devastating attack. In that state, Tang Wulin's body was virtually invincible, and he was able to concentrate all of his power to one spot, much like Ye Xinglan was able to focus her power entirely on the tip of her sword. However, there were two main limitations to this attack: it only had an effective range of 30 meters, and it could only attack in a straight line. However, the explosive attack unleashed by using this technique was three times more powerful than his normal attacks.
This was the third of Zhuo Shi's Nine Arts of the Scarlet Dragon, Dragon Takes Flight! To put it more accurately, these were the Nine Arts of the Golden Dragon to Tang Wulin, so this attack was Golden Dragon Takes Flight!
In that instant, Tang Wulin was like the true Golden Dragon King brandishing his claws in a menacing manner, determined to slay any beings who dared to stand in his path.
This was the first time that Tang Wulin had unleashed Golden Dragon Takes Flight in a real battle, and it had been extremely effective.
Not only had his soul and bloodline powers been infused into this attack, his spiritual power also played a role, so this was a technique that assaulted the enemy in all areas. As such, even after adopting his mist form, the Evil Soul Master was still affected by that attack.
After crashing down to the ground, the Evil Soul Master didn't dare to take his opponent lightly anymore. Specks of grey light began to emerge all over his body, and tree-leaf-like pieces of armor encapsulated his entire body. At the same time, a pair of grey wings unfurled on his back, giving him the appearance of a giant bat.
This was a winged suit of battle armor, so it was a suit of two-word battle armor!
Not only was this Evil Soul Master a seven-ring Soul Sage, he was also a two-word battle armor master!
After summoning his suit of battle armor, the Evil Soul Master's aura transformed drastically.
One had to realize that a suit of battle armor could significantly enhance a Soul Master's powers. Even though a seven-ring Soul Sage in a suit of two-word battle armor still couldn't compare to a Titled Douluo, they were most definitely more powerful than an eight-ring Soul Douluo.
The surrounding area was suddenly plunged into complete darkness, and the Evil Soul Master threw his head back before letting loose a sharp screech. Tang Wulin felt as if a sharp spike had been driven into his head, striking him with a splitting headache. At the same time, his bloodline began to churn wildly in an uncontrollable manner again.
What was even more alarming to Tang Wulin was that after he lost control over his bloodline power, it began to surge toward his ninth Golden Dragon King seal.
He was right in the middle of a battle! Breaking his ninth seal now would be akin to committing suicide!
With that in mind, Tang Wulin hurriedly bit down on the tip of his tongue to regain some mental clarity. Specks of golden light then began to emerge all over his body as he released his own suit of battle armor.
Pieces of golden armor appeared to encapsulate his entire body, and with the enhancements brought to him by his suit of battle armor, Tang Wulin was finally able to control his bloodline again. The visor fell to conceal his handsome face, and he swept his right hand over his forehead, following which his Golden Dragon Spear instantly appeared in his hand.
Thus, he was wearing a suit of golden armor with a golden visor while wielding a Golden Dragon Spear, giving him the appearance of a scintillating golden war god.
He raised his Golden Dragon Spear before him, and bright golden light erupted from his eyes. He squatted down slightly, then propelled himself toward the Evil Soul Master again.
His Golden Dragon Spear pierced through the air like lightning, sending spear projections hurtling through his opponent. However, a peculiar scene then unfolded. The Evil Soul Master's body seemed to be completely weightless as he flashed through the air at an alarming speed, thereby allowing him to evade all of the attacks from Tang Wulin's Golden Dragon Spear just in the nick of time.
With the enhancements from his suit of two-word battle armor, his sharp claws had already elongated to over a foot in length and had taken on a grey crystalline appearance. As the Evil Soul Master evaded Tang Wulin's attacks, he would occasionally throw in an attack of his own using those sharp claws.
His attacks were simply too fast for Tang Wulin to be able to evade all of them, and as soon as the claw strikes landed, they would leave a few white marks on his suit of one-word battle armor.
However, it was at times like this that the immense defensive prowess of Tang Wulin's suit of battle armor really came to the fore. Every time the Evil Soul Master's attacks struck the suit of battle armor, scale-like patterns would appear over its surface, thereby significantly nullifying the force of the attacks.
Generally speaking, a two-word battle armor master would be able to crush a one-word battle armor master with ease, but this was clearly not the case here. Of course, this could partially be attributed to the fact that Tang Wulin's suit of one-word battle armor had been constructed from spirit alloys, but it was more of a testament to the immense defensive prowess that Tang Wulin possessed.
However, Tang Wulin was certainly not enjoying the current situation, either. His opponent was far too fast and flashed through the night like an unpredictable wraith, so none of his immensely powerful attacks were able to strike their target. This kind of opponent was extremely troublesome for him to deal with as he was unable to truly make use of his strengths against them.
Similarly, the Evil Soul Master was also having a hard time bringing down Tang Wulin. The latter's defensive prowess was simply far too powerful, and the Evil Soul Master had learned his lesson after being struck by the Golden Dragon Takes Flight. As such, he had become extremely cautious and was adopting guerrilla warfare tactics, slowly wearing down Tang Wulin's soul power while constantly searching for holes in Tang Wulin's defense.
Thus, an arduous battle ensued, and the other six members of Shrek’s Seven Monsters were also struggling.
A total of 11 Evil Soul Masters had surrounded them, and they were unleashing attacks in a torrential barrage.
Evil Soul Masters belonged to a completely different system in the world of Soul Masters, and this applied to their martial souls as well. If one were to pursue the path of becoming an Evil Soul Master, then the abilities they attained through cultivation would also be vastly different from that of normal Soul Masters.
The six-ring Evil Soul Masters leading from the front were the most troublesome to deal with. All of them were one-word battle armor masters, and their martial souls were also extremely strange.
One of the six-ring Evil Soul Masters had transformed into a massive armored skeleton that was around eight meters tall and constructed from extremely thick bones. The suit of armor it was wearing was none other than a suit of one-word battle armor, and it was wielding a massive blade that was around seven meters long.
Thankfully, Shrek’s Seven Monsters had Yuanen Yehui among their ranks. She released her Titan Giant Ape martial soul, and was wielding her pair of giant hammers to keep the massive skeleton's attacks at bay.
The second six-ring Evil Soul Master bore a strong resemblance to a clown. One side of his face was white while the other half was black, thereby creating a very unsettling appearance. He was cackling incessantly while spinning relentlessly on the spot, and a series of curses, such as hesitation and horror, were being cast onto the six members of Shrek's Seven Monsters, thereby constantly debilitating them. Furthermore, he was situated behind all of the other Evil Soul Masters, so there was no way to get to him.
The third six-ring Evil Soul Master had transformed into a giant wolf with an overwhelming stench of blood and gore emanating from its body. It was picking up the corpses of men in black during battle, and it specifically devoured the hearts of those bodies. With every heart that it consumed, its offensive prowess would be enhanced. Its entire body was covered in metallic grey fur, and even Ye Xinglan's Stargod Sword was unable to pierce through his suit of battle armor.
The fourth six-ring Evil Soul Master appeared to be most normal among the four as, at the very least, he looked like a human. He was riding a skeletal horse that was entirely enshrouded in black flames, giving him the appearance of a mythical horseman of the apocalypse. His entire body was encapsulated in a suit of heavy black armor, and he was wielding a claymore as he engaged in a fierce battle with Yue Zhengyu.
Yuanen Yehui was facing the skeletal Evil Soul Master, Ye Xinglan was taking on the giant wolf Evil Soul Master, and Yue Zhengyu was combating the horse-rider Evil Soul Master. All three of them were struggling somewhat in their battles.
Among Soul Masters of the same cultivation rank, Evil Soul Masters were generally more powerful than normal Soul Masters. Shrek’s Seven Monsters clearly weren't normal Soul Masters, but the evil Soul Masters they were facing were also of higher cultivation ranks than them. Furthermore, they had a control system Evil Soul Master constantly casting all types of curses to weaken them.
Xie Xie really wanted to take out that clown Evil Soul Master, but the problem was that he had to stay behind to protect Xu Lizhi and Xu Xiaoyan
Both of them simply didn't have enough direct combat prowess to protect themselves, and if Xie Xie were to leave, other Evil Soul Masters would definitely swoop in to kill them.
Among the remaining seven Evil Soul Masters, five were five-ring Soul Kings, two of which were one-word battle armor masters, and the remaining two were both four-ring Soul Ancestors.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
