Volume 34, Chapter 458.2: Soul Core

Furthermore, I suspect that Di Tian has a second soul core. His abilities are already close to that of a god. If he were human, he might have been accepted by the Godly Realm already.

Huo Yuhao listened very seriously. To him, such knowledge was simply too important. This also allowed him to clearly see his future path of development.

Elder Xuan smiled and said, Yuhao, its much easier for you to become an Ultimate Douluo compared to us, because you have twin martial souls. Remember, you must aim to achieve double soul cores the moment you become a Titled Douluo. As long as you can form black holes with those two soul cores, you can easily overcome the barrier to becoming an Ultimate Douluo. Haih, its a pity that time is not on our side. If you had another thirty years to become an Ultimate Douluo, why would we be afraid of Ye Xishui and Long Xiaoyao? An Ultimate Douluo with twin martial souls would be much stronger than either of them. You could even possibly challenge Di Tian!

Huo Yuhao said, Elder Xuan, how can soul power be stabilized as it transforms into a black hole? In my experiments, I found myself losing control before the revolution of my soul power had generated sufficient spatial power. The key lies in my fear. I feared that I would suffer some kind of backlash once I lost control. That is why I dont even know what my limit is.

Elder Xuan laughed and said, Fool, dont be too ambitious! Youre only a Soul Sage right now. Even though you have twin martial souls, youre still a Soul Sage! You cant possibly form a soul core right now. However, you have a very great advantage over other soul masters. Because of this advantage, Im confident that you can directly form double soul cores when you become a Titled Douluo.

“Are you talking about my spiritual power?” Huo Yuhao immediately understood what Elder Xuan meant.

Elder Xuan nodded and replied, Thats right, its your spiritual power. Your spiritual power is greater than most other ordinary soul masters, comparable to a Titled Douluo. There are very few spiritual-type soul masters, but a spiritual-type Titled Douluo will most certainly become a Transcendent Douluo. This is because spiritual-type soul masters have greater control than most ordinary soul masters! 

“Its fine for you to carry out such experiments right now. At least youll get to accumulate experience. However, dont be too fixated on it. You cant help it if your abilities arent up to par. As your soul power is insufficient, you cant possibly compress all your soul power inside your soul core when you change it from the fluid to the solid state. The bigger the soul core, the stronger the Titled Douluo.

Huo Yuhao was moved, and asked, Elder Xuan, if I try to form a soul core right now, what might happen?

Elder Xuan was stunned for a moment, then smiled. First, its almost impossible. While your control might be strong, its very difficult to control spatial power. If things go wrong, youll be courting your own death. During the process of carrying out soul power compression, the demands on a soul masters physical tenacity are very great. Ones body is like a container that stores soul power, whereas the transformation of soul power from a fluid to a solid state will generate immense energy. If your body isnt strong enough, youll blow apart and die. This is why you cant just try for fun.

Assuming you really succeed, your future cultivation is bound to increase significantly. A solid soul core absorbs origin energy at a much faster speed than your meditation right now. However, what will happen when you reach Rank 90? You already have one soul core, and you cant possibly compress all your soul power inside it. 

“When you reach Rank 90, youll need to attempt the compression of your second soul core. Its only in this way that youll become a Titled Douluo. However, your soul core will definitely appear in your dantian. Theres a very high possibility that your first soul core will form in your dantian, as well. Theres also a possibility that you can form two at the same time. However, if theres already one soul core in your dantian, youll have to take a look at my condition if you want to form a second soul core somewhere else.

Elder Xuan was a little helpless as he pointed to himself.

Huo Yuhao understood what he meant. According to Elder Xuan, assuming that he did the impossible and formed a first soul core, it would be as difficult for him to form a second soul core as it was to become an Ultimate Douluo from a Rank 98 Transcendent Douluo.

I understand. Thank you. Huo Yuhao said softly.

Elder Xuan said, Didnt you say you wanted to challenge your limits earlier? You can try, Ill watch over you. I would also like to see how good your control is. I suggest you try with one-tenth of your soul power. When your soul power reaches the solid state and continues to increase until you feel like you cant control it anymore, Ill be here. Dont worry. Ill ensure your safety.

Huo Yuhao was delighted, Thanks, Elder Xuan. Shall I start now?

Yes, you can start now.


Huo Yuhao first calmed himself down and adjusted his state of mind. He shut his eyes, and his spiritual power started to flow. He also checked his soul power.

Elder Xuan stood by one side and silently nodded. This kid is still as composed as ever. He’s not lost his cool at all.

When Huo Yuhao opened his eyes again, his eyes were already covered with a layer of gold. He slowly lifted his right hand, and his milky-white soul power started to flow out.

As his soul power was in the fluid state, it looked like a puddle of milk in his palm. None of his soul power seeped out of his hand as he controlled it using his spiritual power.

More and more of his soul power started to appear and drift above Huo Yuhao’s palm. It was slowly revolving. This time, Huo Yuhao had poured out more soul power than he did the previous two times in his experiments. With Elder Xuan protecting him, he naturally didn’t need to worry too much.

Under his control, the circulation of his soul power started to increase in speed. At the same time, it also started to slowly compress. During the process of compression, Huo Yuhao slowly increased the input of his soul power.

His fluid soul power started to become viscous, but its speed kept on increasing under Huo Yuhao’s intentional control. There was now a layer of gold surrounding his white soul power. It was this layer of gold that protected his soul power from seeping away.

If it were any other seven-ringed soul master, his soul power would quickly vaporize if he let his soul power out of his body just like that, without using any soul skills. After vaporizing, his soul power would then vanish into the air.

Elder Xuan nodded in approval as he watched Huo Yuhao’s control of his spiritual power. Even though this didn’t drain too much of his spiritual power, there was a very great demand of detail. It wasn’t easy for Huo Yuhao to do something like this.

His soul power was slowly transforming from the fluid to the solid state. Huo Yuhao’s expression also started to turn serious. However, his soul power didn’t shift in the slightest under his control, and continued to constantly revolve.

It finally transformed into the solid state. It was very difficult to imagine a Soul Sage doing this! Elder Xuan was in awe, and also grew more focused. He was ready to react to any situation.

Huo Yuhao’s soul power kept on compressing and revolving.

Slowly, his solid soul power took form. The little funnel that Huo Yuhao was familiar with appeared. As he had poured more soul power into it this time, the appearance of the funnel created a greater draw of origin energy from outside than before. The terrifying suction force directly spread outward. Within the Sea God’s Pavilion, origin energy was in abundance. Huo Yuhao felt as if the energy from this little whirlpool had increased at a rate at least twice as quick compared to his previous two experiments.

Distorted lights around his solid soul power started to become more and more obvious. The intense suction force didn’t just draw in origin energy, it was also absorbing Huo Yuhao’s own soul power. Huo Yuhao had no choice but to continuously pour his soul power into it to enhance the strength of his solid soul power.

“Very good, continue. Don’t worry. Let me see what standard you can reach.” Elder Xuan’s voice sounded in Huo Yuhao’s ears, alleviating his worries. However, he didn’t immediately increase the output of his soul power. Rather, he allowed the vortex to absorb the soul power in his body. At the same time, he kept on strengthening the control of his spiritual power in a bid to maintain the stability of his solid soul power.

Elder Xuan had mentioned before that he had to maintain the stability of his solid soul power if he wanted to make it his soul core. Once stability was lost, a huge explosion would ensue. That would be very perilous.

Under Huo Yuhao’s control, his solid soul power started to stabilize, as well as continuing to strengthen. The surge of origin energy also became faster and faster. Huo Yuhao even saw dim gold appearing on the walls in the room. The Golden Tree was absorbing origin energy from the outside world even as it was pouring out origin energy. This went to show that Huo Yuhao’s solid soul power was absorbing origin energy at an immensely quick rate.

Elder Xuan’s body lit up with a layer of dim golden light, isolating him from the outside world. Huo Yuhao’s solid soul power was already starting to absorb his own soul power. However, Elder Xuan was able to isolate it, given that there was a huge difference in their cultivations.

A mysterious look slowly appeared across Huo Yuhao’s face. On his forehead, his Eye of Destiny had already slowly opened. He increased the output of his spiritual power once again and continued to control the revolution of his solid soul power with stability.

Seconds passed, and more than half of Huo Yuhao’s soul power had already fused into this solid soul power. He also started to feel that he was slowly losing control of the revolution of this solid soul power. His spiritual control was still maintaining its stability, but it was impossible for him to stop it anymore. If he did so, there would only be one result: an explosion!
