Fortunately, Ju Zi unleashed a Class 5 soul tool barrier and blocked the wind blades.
Huo Yuhao was stunned, and asked, “What element does this fellow have?”
Ke Ke replied, “The Silverwolf is so strong because it possesses the six elements of water, fire, earth, wind, light and darkness. It’s able to unleash the powers of any element depending on its will. That’s why it’s so difficult to deal with. There’s practically no element that can curb it. It’s said that once it becomes a Silverwolf King after ten thousand years, another rare and advanced element will be added to it. At the hundred thousandth year, it will gain yet another element. The only fortunate thing is that it can only unleash the most basic attacks of each element, even though it possesses many elements.”
Before Ke Ke even finished speaking, a third ball of silver light had already turned into a cone-shaped ice attack shooting at them. Although it couldn’t overcome the barrier, it depleted Ju Zi’s soul power rapidly.
Ke Ke wanted to press the eject button beside her seat, but she was stopped by Ju Zi. “Let Yuhao do it. Your fighting style creates too much commotion. I didn’t expect to meet such a rare soul beast after just entering the Jing Yang Mountain Range.”
Huo Yuhao didn’t say anything after he heard her words. He slammed his right hand beside his seat, and the window above him opened to either side. His body was ejected like a cannonball.
The Silverwolf couldn’t overcome the Class 5 soul tool barrier easily. It was even shocked as Huo Yuhao suddenly appeared. As the Silverwolf lifted its head, it spat out a silver ball of light.
It was yet another wind-type attack. Many wind blades covered the entire area, and Huo Yuhao couldn’t possibly dodge.
Diamond ice crystals appeared and shone extremely brightly under the sun. They were even more dazzling than the silver light on the Silverwolf’s body. The wind blades couldn’t penetrate Huo Yuhao’s Ice Empress’ Armor.
Six metal barrels appeared on Huo Yuhao’s body at this point, and were fired in the direction of the Silverwolf. Six streaks of light instantly shot out. The Silverwolf was extremely quick, and spat out a few more silver light balls as it leapt backwards. They formed layers of water curtains in the air, which weakened the soul rays. By the time the soul rays reached it, it managed to dodge them easily.
Huo Yuhao landed on the ground following this strike and started to lope towards the Silverwolf like a panther.
The Silverwolf was evidently more adept at long-range attacks. As it retreated, it continued to spit out balls of silver light towards Huo Yuhao.
However, Huo Yuhao had a deeper understanding of the Silverwolf after Ju Zi and Ke Ke introduced it to him. The element contained within the Silverwolf’s silver light balls couldn’t be concealed from him, he used his Spiritual Detection to detect it.
Three white soul rings rose from Huo Yuhao’s legs, and started to shine brightly. The two ladies who were watching him were shocked. What was happening?
Huo Yuhao didn’t dare to reveal too many of his abilities since Ju Zi had threatened him. Right now, he was using all three of his soul skills at the same time.
A purplish-golden radiance flashed across his eyes before disappearing. The Silverwolf screamed pathetically before falling into convulsions on the ground. It writhed around in pain for a few seconds before staggering back to its feet. However, it didn’t appear to be clear-headed anymore. Mass Enfeeblement and Spiritual Interference had struck it at the sametime.
Huo Yuhao was the one most surprised at this point. He thought that the Silverwolf was merely a few thousand years old, and thus its spiritual power should be inferior to him by a lot. Even if it didn’t die from his Spiritual Shock, it should be almost half-dead. However, it was able to crawl up.
This was beyond what Huo Yuhao had expected. Was this Silverwolf a spiritual-type soul beast? However, it only had three thousand years of cultivation. It wasn’t suitable enough for him!
He did not slow down even though he was thinking in his head. When the Spiritual Shock was unleashed, he had already charged forward. The intense radiance from a Class 5 soul thruster lit up behind his back. He increased his speed to the limit instantly and reached the Silverwolf just as it stood up.
He struck with his right hand. The purplish-golden radiance flashed from Huo Yuhao’s eyes again. He didn’t give the Silverwolf any chance to catch its breath. He unleashed the Spiritual Shock once again, causing the Silverwolf’s seven apertures to spurt blood. His Darkgolden Terrorclaws stabbed into the back of the Silverwolf’s neck and tore into its central nerves.
The entire fighting process was very simple. The three thousand year old Silverwolf was repressed so heavily by Huo Yuhao that it couldn’t resist at all.
Ju Zi looked at the wide-eyed Ke Ke with an amused expression. “Do you still think we can beat him in the wild?”
Ke Ke muttered, “He’s too scary when he engages in close-combat. That’s a three thousand year Silverwolf! However, it was completely helpless against him. Since when did a Silverwolf become so weak? I’ve heard that such soul beasts are very strong!”
Ju Zi sighed, “The Silverwolf isn’t weak. He’s just too strong. Before his last strike, the Silverwolf had already lost its ability to resist after being struck by his soul skills. His twin martial souls are indeed scary! I think even a Class 6 or 7 soul engineer wouldn’t be able to resist him if he gets close.”
Ke Ke was a little indignant as she said, “Then don’t let him come close.”
Ju Zi shook her head helplessly and said, “You say it like it’s so simple. Didn’t you see what he used to increase his speed? That was a Class 5 soul thruster. Even a Class 7 soul engineer wouldn’t dare to use it so easily. Aren’t you aware of its impact on one’s body? With our physical strength, we wouldn’t even be able to use a Class 3 soul thruster a few times. He only has three rings. Although his soul power has reached Rank 40, he is still considered brave to attempt the use of a Class 5 soul thruster. Furthermore, he was still able to attack after using it. What does that mean?”
Ke Ke didn’t speak. She naturally knew what it meant it. It meant that Huo Yuhao was much stronger than they had imagined. How strong must his body be to withstand such an immense, instantaneous thrusting force? With their current abilities, they could only manage to sustain it for somewhere between fifty and two hundred meters. Beyond that range, they needed stationary soul tools to maintain sufficient offensive strength. A Class 5 soul tool increased Huo Yuhao’s speed such that he moved one hundred meters in a second. This meant that he moved two hundred meters every time he inhaled. How would they stand a chance against him with his physical strength and impressive close-combat abilities?
“He must be quite extraordinary in Shrek Academy, too,” Ke Ke said softly.
Ju Zi nodded lightly, “Perhaps, the seemingly weakest out of the exchange students is actually the core of everything. Alright, this doesn’t really concern us. Don’t talk of this matter when you return either. After all, we enjoyed his delicacies.”
Huo Yuhao had already returned with the Silverwolf as they spoke. A flashing purple soul ring rose from it.
“Brother Skydream, wake up!” Huo Yuhao slowed down intentionally. He called for the Skydream Iceworm, as he needed answers to his questions. He was actually tempted by this Silverwolf’s soul ring. For most soul masters, their fourth soul ring should come from a thousand year soul beast. If he had no choice, he could accept this three thousand year soul ring.
“Little Yuhao, you haven’t disturbed me in a long time!” The Skydream Iceworm answered lazily. It didn’t sound fully awake yet. However, it was still very happy that Huo Yuhao woke him up.
“Brother Skydream, I met a special soul beast found only in the Sun Moon Empire. Help me see if it’s a spiritual-type. I can’t be sure.” He quickly described the Silverwolf’s abilities.
“Oh?” The Skydream Iceworm used the projection in his Spiritual Sea to observe the Silverwolf as he heard Huo Yuhao’s description. When Huo Yuhao reached the all terrain exploration soul tool, it gave him a definite answer.
“This soul beast is supposed to be a mix of elements that doesn’t possess all the elemental powers? That is not possible for a soul beast. It’s only tapping into its affinity with the various elements and its own immense spiritual power to control the elemental powers. The metal that it consumes is probably only effective in increasing its affinity toward the different elements. Otherwise, it would be able to exhibit more than just the basic elemental powers. Yes, you can adopt it as your fourth soul ring. However, this Silverwolf is too weak, and isn’t suitable for you. I didn’t expect to see such a fun soul beast. If you meet another one of the same species with a cultivation of at least ten thousand years, you must not let it go. I believe that its soul skill should be rather good. Although it may not be an offensive-type soul skill, it can enhance your overall abilities, as well as your Mass Enfeeblement.”
“Alright, thanks.” Huo Yuhao put the Silverwolf’s corpse away in his storage-type soul tool before re-entering the all-terrain exploration soul tool.
Ju Zi gave him a thumbs-up as a compliment. Huo Yuhao only smiled and asked, “How do you plan to deal with this Silverwolf?”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
