Chapter 391 - Three Versus Three
Three against three, huh? Luo Guixing narrowed his eyes. Tang Wulin, you may have taken down Wu Siduo, but victory is still ours!
To Luo Guixing, he only needed to be wary of Gu Yue. However, while she may be strong, he didn’t believe she could defeat all three of them alone. Xu Xiaoyan wasn’t worthy of his attention, and Xu Lizhi was just a food-type soul master. Even with Xu Lizhi’s support, it wouldn’t be enough to turn the tide of battle.
Luo Guixing held absolute confidence of his team’s victory. In his mind, Tang Wulin’s defeat had decided the battle. Tang Wulin was simply too important to his team.
Tang Wulin wasn’t powerful compared to Wu Siduo, but he evened out the playing field with battle armor! He was the first person in all of the first grade to own a piece of battle armor!
Tang Wulin’s blacksmithing talent had earned him the position of blacksmith representative. Everyone in their class wanted to work with him. Now that he revealed his battle armor and proved his skills, his popularity would undoubtedly skyrocket! Everyone aspired to become a battle armor master, and he took the lead! He had used his strength to prove he deserved to be the class president!
If Luo Guixing wanted to snatch away the position, he had to win this battle and defeat the second grade’s team! His team still had a chance!
It wasn’t only because of his intellect that Luo Guixing ranked higher than Xu Yucheng. It was also his willpower!
Absolute silenced reigned over the spectators. The two strongest members of the ranker team were eliminated, and the victor was yet to be decided. No one had predicted Tang Wulin and Xie Xie would be able to take out Wu Siduo and Xu Yucheng.
Shen Yi glanced at Wu Zhangkong to her side, her heart filled with shock. Senior brother really does understand his disciples best!
They both understood what sort of strength Ye Xinglan possessed. If Ye Xinglan had participated in the battle, then the combination of her, Gu Yue, and Xu Xiaoyan meant certain victory! Without her, the battle still held some suspense.
No one was absolutely certain in the ranker team’s victory anymore. If Xie Xie could defeat Xu Yucheng, then it was also possible for the remaining three to surprise them.
Dark Bear Yang Nianxia roared at the sky, then charged at Gu Yue.
Neither Gu Yue, Xu Xiaoyan, nor Xu Lizhi were skilled at close quarters combat. In Yang Nianxia’s mind, victory was assured.
Luo Guixing and Zheng Yiran stood right behind Yang Nianxia, determination blazing in the depths of their hearts. They hadn’t expected to be battered into such a sorry state. Now, only victory could wash away the disgrace.
Luo Guixing locked eyes on Gu Yue. It was a contest of control now. If he could restrain her, then his opponents would have no way of putting up a fight.
Gu Yue met his gaze with cold arrogance in her eyes. Holding Xu Xiaoyan’s left hand in her right, their soul rings beginning to shine.
It was then that Luo Guixing’s team finally realized Xu Xiaoyan had gained a third soul ring.
The first to act was Xu Xiaoyan. Her third soul ring lit up completely. Immediately, a blizzard took over and plummeted the stage into sub zero temperatures.
Then Gu Yue’s first soul ring began to glow as she activated Elemental Tide! She didn’t have a soul fusion skill with Xu Xiaoyan, but she could control the water element in the air to gather around them, increasing the strength of Xu Xiaoyan’s Ice Bear Blizzard by 30 percent!
The blizzard immediately obscured everyone’s vision.
Luo Guixing’s expression darkened, his gaze sharpening. This isn’t good!
The frigid winds suppressed the potency of Zheng Yiran’s poison and without her poison, her combat strength dropped significantly. Moreover, with the poor visibility and both sides having an equal number of three-ringed soul masters, it would devolve into a battle of attrition!
Luo Guixing raised his hand and used Spatial Lock on Gu Yue. It was a battle over the control of space. Silver light flashed around her, as if it had succeeded. But a split-second later, it disappeared! Luo Guixing failed to seal her!
The biting winds of the blizzard soon bore down on them with full force, swallowing them between its icy maws. The blizzard was composed of both the ice and water elements! There was no one better than Gu Yue for bringing out the full power of Xu Xiaoyan’s soul skill!
Earlier on that had tried to use this skill but but were interrupted by the explosion of energy from Tang Wulin and Wu Siduo’s clash. Now, they were able to unleash it and show of its might!
Yang Nianxia bore the brunt of the blizzard. A layer of ice instantly formed on his body, but his body was too strong to fall from just that. He pushed forward with large strides! I just have to get close to them and we’ll win!
Luo Guixing switched tactics. He quickly conjured a multitude of silver lights in front of Yang Nianxia instead, deflecting some of the blizzard’s strength.
Zheng Yiran rushed in behind Yang Nianxia. By using him as a shield, she could just endure the frigid winds. Her entire body was dark green, her pupils two vertical slits. She was unable to spread her poison fog in this blizzard, but she also had some confidence in her abilities as long as she could get closer.
Gu Yue raised her left hand, unleashing a barrage of wind blades! They were only a foot long, but in this raging blizzard, they rapidly gained momentum. Wind blade after wind blade merged into the blizzard and with every new wind blade, the blizzard strengthened in ferocity and power. From the perspective of the spectators, it was nigh impossible for the rankers to penetrate the blizzard and reach their opponents.
We can’t let her go unchecked!
The three rankers all understood how terrifying Gu Yue’s storms were given sufficient time.
Yang Nianxia raised his burly arms to protect his head, then ducked down and charged forward! He didn’t care what sort of injuries he would suffer. He was prepared to accept it all if it meant victory!
A small snake shot from Zheng Yiran in a flash of light, quickly growing until it was a five-meter-long python! It slithered after Yang Nianxia, keeping pace right behind him.
At that moment, a dozen one-meter-long wind blades appeared out of nowhere, swerving around Yang Nianxia and straight for Zheng Yiran!. Luo Guixing’s face darkened as he hastily used Spatial Retreat! A flash of silver later, Zheng Yiran appeared back by his side. The snake, her spirit soul, wasn’t as fortunate.
A mournful wail pierced the air. Zheng Yiran shuddered, then fell on her butt.
The python turned into a mass of green light that re-entered her body. It would take a while before it could resurrect. Zheng Yiran suffered serious damage from her spirit soul dying.
Meanwhile, Yang Nianxia took this opportunity to close the gap between him and his targets. Only ten meters remained between him and Gu Yue and Xu Xiaoyan. Yet, as he rushed toward them, a golden ring appeared on the ground. It didn’t target Yang Nianxia, but the distant Luo Guixing!
With Luo Guixing and Zheng Yiran together, it was the perfect time for this golden ring to make a move! Luo Guixing had just used Spatial Retreat, and there was a brief moment where he couldn’t use any soul skills!
Golden chains shot out of the ground and bound the two of them. Then a flurry of wind blades appeared, flying straight for them!
What the hell is this?
How is this possible?
The smile on Luo Guixing’s face froze. To his shock, he realised that he couldn’t use his soul power. He was like an ordinary person now! No matter how hard he fought against the chains, he couldn’t move a single bit of soul power to his will. The wind blades arrived.
As a controller of space, he didn’t have much defensive power, and Zheng Yiran had just suffered a grievous injury! There was nothing they could do to defend themselves!
