Volume 37, Chapter 523.1: A Display of Strength

“Alright, those are times long gone, so let’s not talk about them anymore. Let’s go. Let me see what other unique and magical qualities your spiritual power possesses. Speaking of which, the Body Sect is also adept with using spiritual power, but there’s quite a gap when compared to you. Your spiritual power alone has the standard of a Titled Douluo, so you are absolutely worthy of participating in this operation with us.”

Du Busi’s cultivation and vision were incredible. Even though he only felt Huo Yuhao’s spiritual power for a brief moment, he could immediately make an accurate judgment.

“Alright, let me lead the way.” Huo Yuhao pulled Tang Wutong as he spoke, and they rose into the air at the same time. They didn’t release their martial souls; they were just using soul power to channel the flying-type soul tool behind their backs. Wings stretched out behind them as they gradually hovered in midair.

The other fifteen Titled Douluo rose into the air one after another, but they experienced another strange scene as they flew into the sky. They realized to their surprise that, with Spiritual Detection, Huo Yuhao actually presented a flight course in their minds, and everyone’s flight course was different. These Titled Douluo flew according to the charted flight course, and immediately formed a circular formation in the sky as they enveloped Huo Yuhao and Tang Wutong in the center.

“Great multitasking,” Du Busi praised once more. He didn’t hide his admiration for Huo Yuhao at all.

Huo Yuhao nodded in his direction before he channeled his spiritual power once more, and passed precise forward paths to the Titled Douluo.

Everyone flew up at the same time, and they proceeded in the direction of the Sun Moon Empire’s under Huo Yuhao’s command.

The air contorted faintly just as they surged into the sky, and all seventeen people disappeared into the air just like that.

Everyone was surprised yet again. The other Titled Douluo felt a flash in front of their eyes before everyone else disappeared around them. But strangely, through Huo Yuhao’s Spiritual Detection, they could feel everyone’s precise locations in their minds. This also meant that what they could see with Spiritual Detection was vastly different from what they could see with their eyes.

This is… mass concealment?

Du Busi attempted to use his spiritual power to sense the people around him, but the Body Douluo was truly astonished this time. The reason was because he realized that, even with his spiritual power, he had to unleash his spiritual power to the highest possible level if he wanted to sense the others’ locations. Afterwards, he still had to judge according to the exact locations that Huo Yuhao’s Spiritual Detection provided before he could make out the details, and only then could he feel some faint spiritual undulations.

As for everyone else, which included the Heavenly Sun Douluo, they couldn’t feel anything at all. They felt like everyone had just vanished into thin air.

The Heavenly Sun Douluo no longer underestimated Huo Yuhao at all. What he had accomplished right now was far more important and effective than any of the Titled Douluo were in this operation. With an ability that could conceal everyone from sight, they could reach the Sun Moon Empire without expending too much effort. Furthermore, once they completed their task, retreating would also be a lot easier. They would have a better guarantee of their safety.

The White Tiger Duke was the one who had suggested that Shrek Academy send Huo Yuhao on this operation, because he had the best understanding of his mighty reconnaissance, investigation, and concealment abilities.

The Titled Douluo were all full of praise for the White Tiger Duke’s decision in this moment. They no longer underestimated Huo Yuhao, were instead full of curiosity.

Their speed began to gradually increase under Huo Yuhao’s control, and they began to rise high into the sky.

Everyone could feel that Huo Yuhao’s Spiritual Detection was stretching far into the distance. Nobody felt much in the beginning, but their expressions began to change when it reached more than three thousand meters into the distance.

Before this, they had some doubts when the Body Douluo had remarked that Huo Yuhao’s spiritual power had reached a Titled Douluo’s standard, and they had thought Du Busi was exaggerating things. But now they began to understand that Du Busi wasn’t exaggerating at all. How could anyone sustain Spiritual Detection over such a large area without possessing strength of a Titled Douluo’s spiritual power?

Three thousand meters was just the beginning. Afterwards, Huo Yuhao reached four thousand meters, then five thousand, then six thousand. When Huo Yuhao’s Spiritual Detection stretched all the way to ten thousand meters, the Body Douluo couldn’t help but blurt out, “Kid, your spiritual power has the standard of a Transcendent Douluo!”

Huo Yuhao smiled faintly and replied, “You flatter me, sir. I’m just cutting some corners with my soul skill.”

Du Busi chortled, but said nothing more.

It was a soul skill, but it was a hundred thousand year soul skill! The higher Huo Yuhao’s cultivation was, the more he could feel and experience exactly how powerful the hundred thousand year soul skill that his brother Skydream had bestowed upon him all those years ago was. Those four hundred thousand year soul skills consolidated his Spirit Eyes’ foundations.

Huo Yuhao was very modest, but nobody dared to underestimate him anymore. Titled Douluo could reach accurate conclusions from just a single glimpse, and even though they didn’t know how formidable his fighting strength was, they could be sure that this youngster’s potential in the future was boundless.

Huo Yuhao’s Spiritual Detection, which could reach an incredibly far distance, quickly began to have practical uses. Large masses of all kinds of surveillance soul tools had already appeared in his vision, and the Titled Douluo could sense them all through Spiritual Detection.

These surveillance soul tools covered between three thousand and five thousand meters of airspace, and it was an all-round detection with all kinds of surveillance soul tools. They covered almost all the space below five thousand meters.

The effect of Huo Yuhao taking the Titled Douluo further up was presented in this moment. They had no choice but to keep flying up, because unless they were higher in the sky, they couldn’t pass by all the dense and tight surveillance soul tools without being detected.

Passing through the border was undoubtedly the most difficult part, and everyone understood that. They continued rising through the air under Huo Yuhao’s guidance with Spiritual Detection.

Those who could participate in this operation were the best of the best in the world of soul masters. There weren’t any who were at Rank 90; every single Titled Douluo was at least Rank 93. There were at least half who were also Transcendent Douluos.

Therefore, going five thousand meters into the air didn’t trouble them at all.

But Huo Yuhao wasn’t satisfied with just five thousand meters. He continued bringing everyone higher into the sky after reaching five thousand meters.

Any height above five thousand meters was practically forbidden to humans, and the further they went, the more gaps between their cultivation ranks began to show.

Nothing much happened to the Transcendent Douluo, but those who weren’t yet Transcendent Douluo gradually began to slow down.

But what astonished them was that Huo Yuhao and Tang Wutong, who were holding each other’s hands, didn’t decelerate due to the cold or because the air was thin. They seemed like their situation wasn’t that much different from the various Transcendent Douluo.

They surprised everyone yet again as they continued taking them up. Huo Yuhao stopped rising only when they reached over six thousand meters in the sky, and only then did he bring everyone towards the Sun Moon Empire’s territory.

Huo Yuhao was already a Class 9 soul engineer. He and Xuan Ziwen had conducted a series of research and experiments regarding all kinds of surveillance soul tools over the past two years, and therefore, he couldn’t be more familiar with these soul tools. High altitude aerial surveillance soul tools could only conduct surveillance downwards; only a very small minority could survey both up and down at the same time. This type was extremely dangerous for everyone here, so that was the reason why Huo Yuhao continued to go up.

All soul tools would be much less effective above five thousand meters, and that was the same for high altitude aerial surveillance soul tools. Even though two years had gone by since then, these two years weren’t enough for surveillance soul tools to be advanced to another level.

Therefore, two years later, according to Huo Yuhao’s accurate judgment with Spiritual Detection, all the surveillance soul tools, whether they were on the ground or in the sky, were insufficient to reach altitudes of more than six thousand meters.

As casual as the Transcendent Douluos were, they still aided the other Titled Douluo to rise to greater heights at the same time as they continued forward and flew towards the Sun Moon Empire’s territory.

Admiration was starting to appear in those Titled Doulou’s minds. The reconnaissance and concealment abilities that Huo Yuhao had displayed was just one part of it; the other was the absolute strength that the two of them were displaying.

Rank 93 Titled Douluo had a lot of trouble flying at six thousand meters, but Huo Yuhao and Tang Wutong appeared extremely casual from the beginning to the end. Furthermore, Huo Yuhao was the main control-type soul master, and he was leading all the other Titled Douluo.

He was multitasking, yet he could maintain flight at such a high altitude so casually. That was sufficient to prove his and Tang Wutong’s strength.

Of course, these Titled Douluo didn’t know that Huo Yuhao and Tang Wutong had Class 9 flying-type soul tools behind their backs! This pair of flying-type soul tools allowed them to conserve soul power as much as possible, and allowed them to fly at extremely high altitudes.

The Heavenly Sun Douluo was already filled with astonishment. He didn’t just stop underestimating Huo Yuhao and Tang Wutong, but he even treated them with caution and wariness.

Typically, one had to be at least a Titled Douluo to fly at more than five thousand meters. Furthermore, going another thousand meters above five thousand was another challenge altogether. Huo Yuhao and Tang Wutong didn’t need anyone’s help to fly to six thousand meters, and even if their flying-type soul tools were special, that was sufficient to display their abilities. This meant they were at least Titled Douluo.

How old are they? The White Tiger Duke did say that they were around twenty years old. That’s just hard to imagine, and I can’t see them straight anymore. Shrek Academy has managed to nurture Titled Douluo who are only a little more than twenty. They have lived up to their name of being an academy of monsters!
