“When I’m old, I’m going to look for a forest like this and settle down there for sure. I’m going to build a log cabin,” said Xu Xiaoyan longingly.
Tang Wulin chuckled and said, “You’re still far from being old. Perhaps you will have already moved on to other ideas by then.”
As he was speaking, all of a sudden, his eyes shifted and turned purple. His right hand instantly grew larger as he snatched at the air. A layer of densely arranged, fine golden dragon scales covered his arm.
“Clang!” It sounded as if Tang Wulin had grabbed something with his hand. They all watched as a tiny snake, over one meter long, appeared in his grasp.
The snake was actually entirely transparent. It was struggling vigorously after being captured by Tang Wulin which gave them a faint look at its silhouette.
What was that?
“It’s a Transparent Bone Snake with a cultivation base of about one hundred years. They who know nothing and fear nothing,” said Sima Jinchi while chuckling.
Tang Wulin frowned ever so slightly. He discovered that the Transparent Bone Snake’s eyes were red. Generally, a normal Transparent Bone Snake’s eyes were gray, which would turn transparent along with its body. He noticed the snake’s presence earlier because he saw its pair of red eyes.
“This is different from an ordinary Transparent Bone Snake. Normal Transparent Bone Snakes wouldn’t possibly have the courage to attack me,” said Tang Wulin without the slightest hesitation.
He had the Golden Dragon King Bloodline and the Golden Dragon King aura on his body was incomparably rich. All dragon-type and elemental dragon-type creatures would either feel intimate feelings toward him or would bow in worship upon meeting him. Even the hostility of such creatures would be weakened substantially. This Transparent Bone Snake had but a one-hundred-year cultivation base. After sensing his aura, if it was not approaching Tang Wulin affectionately, it should not have appeared before him at all. It certainly would not have attacked him.
Yuanen Yehui said, “They mentioned that the soul beasts here are all simulated by the War God Hall, right? All the soul beasts here can reappear again and again. Moreover, to increase the difficulty of the War God Battlefield, the soul beasts will certainly be hostile toward soul masters.”
Tang Wulin nodded. “So we still need to have a look and check it out ourselves as expected.” Since it was simulated, there was no need for him to show mercy anymore. He clenched his Golden Dragon Claw and crushed Transparent Bone Snake’s head at once.
All at once, some strange changes began to take place. After being killed, the Transparent Bone Snake immediately transformed into a ball of light that broke into sparks in the air. Rather than disperse, the sparks fused into their bodies.
Although it was faint, the group could clearly sense that their bodies had been slightly enhanced.
“Did you feel that?” Tang Wulin asked his companions.
Yuanen Yehui said, “I felt it. It’s as if killing the soul beasts here enhances our bodies. Even though it might only be temporary, at the very least, it could be useful when we’re fighting against the opponent.”
Sima Jinchi said, “It’s certainly useful. They said before that killing those two one-hundred-thousand-year soul beasts would result in random amplification. It seems like they were still withholding some information. I think that actually killing any soul beasts will result in amplification, only that the amplification level is different. These people from the War God Hall are really cunning!”
Tang Wulin chuckled and said, “They gave us an hour’s time to test this out. If we are incapable of testing this, then we can’t blame them. Let’s go. We should give it one more try to see if all soul beasts will enhance our abilities. Yuanen, you should stay here and observe the place to see how long before the Transparent Bone Snake that we killed respawns.”
One hour’s time passed quickly. When Tang Wulin’s group of four returned to their base camp, they discovered that Ling Zichen was sitting on the same spot in a state similar to meditation. It was apparent that she was already starting to forget it all.
“Captain, are we going to end up fighting four against five?” said Xu Xiaoyan, feeling exasperated.
Tang Wulin said, “There’s nothing we can do if we have to go four-on-five. Ling Zichen mentioned that the soul circuit is just as vital as the Eternal Heaven. Don’t disturb her and let her continue to memorize. We’ll do the best that we can.”
“Alright. It’s just that it’s going to be troublesome pulling off the strategy we made without her. How should we carry it out now?”
Tang Wulin said, “We shall make some adjustments. Let me think about this…”
“There’s no need to make adjustments. We shall go ahead according to the original plan. Tell me, what should I do?”
From sitting cross-legged on the floor, Ling Zichen suddenly leaped up and opened her eyes.
Tang Wulin could see something in her eyes. It was excitement! Yes, she was clearly and thoroughly excited. It was quite apparent that she had achieved immense gains in one hour’s time.
“Tang Sect Master, are you ready? We have already entered the War God Battlefield. The competition is about to begin in one minute.” The Skycrosser Douluo’s voice seemed to be echoing from the vault of heaven into their ears.
Tang Wulin spoke with a sonorous voice, “We are ready. Let’s begin in one minute.”
A beam of light descended from the sky and a sixty-second countdown showed up at once. At the same time, a barrier of light appeared on their base camp’s three exits. It was apparently used to stop them from leaving before the sixty-second countdown.
Tang Wulin was not that concerned about the issue of fairness. After all, the War God Hall would not go as far as trickery in this.
Tang Wulin transmitted his voice to swiftly brief Ling Zichen. Ling Zichen’s expression immediately turned peculiar as soon as she heard his words.
“I can see that you have a lot of tricks up your sleeve.” Ling Zichen looked at him with a cautious expression.
Tang Wulin spoke in an unpleasant tone, “What do you mean ‘tricks up my sleeve’? All is fair in love and war. Do you understand?”
“Ten, nine, eight…three, two, one! Begin!”
The countdown ended, and the barriers at the three exits vanished without a trace. Tang Wulin nodded toward his companions. Yuanen Yehui and Xu Xiaoyan walked toward the exit on the left path, while Tang Wulin and Sima Jinchi took the right path. Director Ling walked with long strides on the middle path. The five of them went their separate ways on the three paths as they swiftly headed toward the outside.
Meanwhile, one could see from above that the five War Gods led by the Skycrosser Douluo Guan Yue had also moved from the other side in unison. They advanced quickly along the three paths separately.
Tang Wulin and Sima Jinchi did not stay together after they had entered the right path. Sima Jinchi continued along the right path on his own while Tang Wulin dove straight into the forest.
There was a translucent purple radiance swirling in his eyes, and his spiritual power spread out.
Tang Wulin possessed a Spirit Domain spiritual cultivation base so one could imagine how great his spiritual power was. He could detect even the slightest movement within one thousand meters.
1Soon, he discovered his first target.
“Roar, roar, roar!” It was as if something sensed his aura. A massive silhouette suddenly dashed through the forest and slammed straight into Tang Wulin.
It was a wild boar the color of black iron. Each bristle of fur on its body was akin to a sharp sting. It was known as the Steel Hog, a soul beast with formidable physical endurance. Its defense was considered the best of the soul beasts in its rank.
Tang Wulin smiled calmly and there was a flash of light on his body. A huge figure separated from his body.
“Squish!” The mountain-like silhouette lifted its leg and squashed the Steel Hog, which had a cultivation base of about one thousand years, underneath its feet. The Steel Hog turned into sparks of starlight that diffused into the air before fusing into the bodies of Tang Wulin and his companions in the distance.
Tang Wulin raised his head and looked up. The massive creature before him widened its lips as if it was smiling at Tang Wulin.
It had been a very long time since Tang Wulin unleashed the Overlord Dragon. The last time he unleashed the creature was when he was engaged in the Battle of Five Gods in the Star Luo Empire.
As his cultivation base grew, the Overlord Dragon was undergoing a tremendous transformation as well. The Overlord Dragon was also known as the king of the Land Dragons. It was from the Elemental Dragon species, but it possessed the terrifying fighting capacity of a real dragon. Currently, it was already close to a hundred meters tall. Its incomparably monstrous figure was even more fearsome. Its entire body was covered in duskgold scales. The scales were each about the size of a table, thick and heavy with obvious cuticles at the surface.
