Chapter 578: Ten Thousand Year Soul Ring
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The ten-thousand-year Devilsoul Great White Shark dropped down from the sky and crashed loudly onto the ocean’s surface, making a great splash. Its humongous body twisted wildly. It wriggled continuously and produced countless waves. The violent energy wreaked havoc in the ocean. There were three or four-thousand year sharks nearby who had their bodies ripped apart by the force. The other sharks kept their distance as they eyed their leader with uncertain eyes.
“Puuu!” The color of blood suddenly dyed the seawater red. A huge slit opened on the back of the ten-thousand-year Devilsoul Great White Shark. A black soul ring rose from its body as it gradually stopped struggling.
A ten-thousand-year soul ring!
Yes, a ten-thousand-year soul ring which had become a rarity in the world of Soul Masters. This also meant the ten-thousand-year Devilsoul Great White Shark was dead!
A figure creeped out from the shark’s back with some difficulty. It was covered in blood. The scales on his body flickered with a faint golden luster. He stood on the shark’s back and released a long howl at the heavens.
Mu Ye was flabbergasted. He had never expected things would turn out like this. He was not shooting aimlessly, but he had taken out a ten-thousand tear soul beast just like that! Moreover, he took out the king of the seas, the ten-thousand-year Devilsoul Great White Shark.
Naturally, it was impossible for Tang Wulin to stand up to a such a creature with his abilities. No matter which perspective one looked at, it was impossible.
Tang Wulin himself had judged the situation from the beginning. Given the circumstances, he understood he did not stand much of a chance. If he wanted to defeat the Devilsoul Great White Shark, there was only one way, and he would have only one opportunity.
He took the hit from the Devilsoul Great White Shark head on. Such a blow injured him gravely. Spitting out fresh blood was not an act he put on. However, with the Golden Dragon Body and his right arm battle armor, he managed to dissipate much of the force from the attack. Even so, that was only the shark’s probing attack.
With his body in the air, he had been a meal in the eyes of the shark pack. Just as Tang Wulin had predicted, the ten-thousand-year Great White Shark would never have allowed the other sharks to have such a tasty treat as he.
That was why it came rushing toward him with its jaw opened wide. Whether it was a swallow or a bite, it was within Tang Wulin’s plan.
He unleashed the Domineering Golden Dragon Body at the last moment.
In the ocean, the Domineering Golden Dragon Body was actually weakened, because almost all the oceanic soul beasts’ attacks were long-range. The Domineering Golden Dragon Body could only unleash its greatest power during close-range situations.
That was why Tang Wulin had gambled. He was betting that the ten-thousand-year Devilsoul Great White Shark would come and eat him. The gamble paid off!
By giving the impression that he was weak, the shark saw him as an easy meal. The Domineering Golden Dragon Body also reacted as he had expected it to. It bore the brunt of the shark’s terrifying bite.
The defensive capabilities of Tang Wulin’s body and the Golden Dragon Body were very strong. With his armor at the ready, his defensive abilities increased tremendously. Even the bite force of the ten-thousand-year Devilsoul Great White Shark could not break his body in two with just one bite.
Naturally, the Duskgold Dreadclaw held nothing back as it slashed at the shark’s throat. No matter how strong a living organism was, their insides were always the weakest parts of their bodies. The ten-thousand-year Devilsoul Great White Shark was no exception, and the results were just as expected.
As he stood on the back of the shark, his bones screamed with pain as if all of them had dislocated. The instant that he was bitten, although the Domineering Golden Dragon Body had taken the blow, Tang Wulin’s back still felt as if it had broken.
Anyway, what did it matter? He was the one that survived. He could not help but release a long howl toward the heavens. The bloodline within his body was boiling and flowing wildly as it healed his wounds.
Then Tang Wulin’s voice stopped abruptly in the next instant. The Devilsoul Great White Shark pack had only stopped for a moment before they rushed toward him in a frenzy.
This was different from an ordinary situation, was it not? The leader of the soul beasts had been killed, so why did the others not run away? Could it be that they were unafraid of death?
Tang Wulin’s expression was slightly stiff. The scene before his eyes seemed to be somewhat different from what he planned.
The ten-thousand-year Devilsoul Great White Shark which posed the biggest threat to him had been killed. The other sharks should have been running away the instant they had the chance. This was a natural instinct! However, the natural instincts of the Devilsoul Great White Sharks were obviously not the same as what he had imagined.
What should he do?
His face looked slightly sluggish. As he faced the thousand year Devilsoul Great White Sharks, he was truly stunned.
He seemed to have taken out the ten-thousand-year Devilsoul Great White Shark with ease, but after taking such a powerful blow followed by such strenuous exertion, his stamina and soul power were greatly exhausted. His current strength was not even a third of his peak condition. Now he had to face an army of forty-thousand-year Devilsoul Great White Sharks!
Could he endure it? Without a doubt, the answer would be no.
Mu Ye, who had flown back into the air revealed a smile as he gloated over Tang Wulin’s misfortune. He said to himself, “Silly brat, do you think this is on land? The Devilsoul Great White Sharks’ bloodlust is not something that should be taken lightly. In their eyes, all things are only food to increase their own strength, even if it’s one of their own. The carcass of a ten-thousand Devilsoul Great White Shark is a huge temptation for them. How could they let go of such a treat? I’m afraid you’re unaware of this natural instinct of theirs.”
Tang Wulin truly did not know about this. He could not keep spacing out like this with the shark pack already nearing him.
Balls of white light shot toward him from all directions. There was no way he could hide from them.
Tang Wulin immediately reacted accordingly. He leaped and re-entered the back of the ten-thousand-year Devilsoul Great White Shark. Concurrently, he curled up his body.
“Boom!” Countless explosions sounded. The ten-thousand-year Devilsoul Great White Shark’s carcass was completely torn to pieces. However, even if it was a carcass, it was still a being that had been cultivating for ten thousand years. Its defensive capabilities were still quite strong.
Tang Wulin dropped directly into the water, however, the force of impact he experienced was limited.
The large group of thousand year sharks rushed forward like a swarm of bees. However, he quickly noticed that not all of them were charging toward him. Quite a number of the sharks headed toward the shattered carcasses.
‘What the-? They’re eating their own leader!’ The usually gentle and polite Tang Wulin could not restrain himself from swearing in his heart. They truly were wild beasts!
Tang Wulin finally understood the special characteristics of the Devilsoul Great White Sharks. He was not shocked, but he was pleased. If that was the case, then what he had to face was not the entire pack of thousand year Devilsoul Great White Sharks.
He rapidly unleashed blades of Bluesilver Grass. They blasted downward and jettisoned him into the air. He could only survive if he stayed away from the area surrounding the ten-thousand-year Devilsoul Great White Shark’s carcass.
The Bluesilver Grass whipped the ocean’s surface as it led him on a run toward a faraway direction. At that moment, the seawater was already the color of blood. The Bluesilver Grass released by Tang Wulin was also tainted with the fresh blood of the ten-thousand-year Devilsoul Great White Shark. The glittering and translucent blue color was overlaid with the color of blood. Under the glow of the moonlight, it had a peculiar sense of beauty to it.
A Devilsoul Great White Shark rushed upward from below as it chased after his body.
Tang Wulin lashed out with his right arm. A ball of dazzling silver light shot out from his hand and twined around the Bluesilver Grass. With a loud blast, it landed a direct hit on the shark’s head. The immense force slammed it right back under the water’s surface. Tang Wulin pulled on the Bluesilver Grass and recalled his Spirit Refined Heavy Silver Hammer. At the same time, his body shivered. As he dropped toward the ocean, he tapped the water’s surface with the tips of his toes. The vines whipped the ocean again and sent him flying.
At that moment, a circle of strange-looking ripples suddenly rose from the ocean’s surface. Shortly after, dozens of water columns shot skyward.
When the ripple touched Tang Wulin, his body stiffened immediately. The blood within his body seemed to have rippled slightly with it. When his bloodline was affected, his body had naturally gone rigid. Even the scales released by the Golden Dragon Body were retracted.
