Be it darkness or light, they would still be affected by Elemental Stripping.
However, there was a limit to the Bluesilver Golden Array. It could not possibly encompass the entire stage, and could only disperse the thickness of the Curtain of Darkness.
The orb on the top of the Elemental Staff in Gu Yue's grasp turned golden, and a beam of golden light shot toward the sky. It spread outward in coordination with the Bluesilver Golden Array. Only then were Yuanen Yehui and Yue Zhengyu exposed.
At this moment, the two of them made very peculiar moves. The golden light of the saint sword flickered within Yue Zhengyu's grasp while a pitch-black demon sword exuded a purplish glow in Yuanen Yehui's grasp. The duo raised their swords above their heads and pointed them toward the heavens.
A melodious, pleasing voice and a deep, hoarse scream resounded on the stage at the same time and giant, five-meter-high shadows appeared behind Yuanen Yehui and Yue Zhengyu.
A dark shadow filled with a dark aura stood behind Yuanen Yehui and spread its wings. Similarly, a golden shadow stood behind Yue Zhengyu with its wings spread out as well. Both the shadows were like oil and water — they did not mix and naturally repel one another.
This was the third soul skill of Yuanen Yehui's Fallen Angel — Fallen Angel's Descent, and Yue Zhengyu's fourth soul skill — Angel's Descent.
They took advantage of the time the Curtain of Darkness bought them and used the full potential of their martial souls.
It was then that both the demon and saint sword began to glow and grew to a length of three meters. Then, they suddenly slashed toward Tang Wulin and Gu Yue's direction.
Golden and purple, two huge beams of light magnificently shot out from the swords. The two beams of light maintained a certain distance between them, but that distance slowly diminished as they extended further. The moment they were about to approach Tang Wulin, the beams of light merged into one.
Suddenly — darkness and light — a terrifying explosion was heard at the exact moment the energy within the two beams of light collided.
Ever since she lost to Tang Wulin's and Gu Yue's Martial Soul fusion skill — Divine Dragon Transformation — Yuanen Yehui had drawn a lesson from that painful experience. She seriously considered about the kind of abilities she would need to fight against them.
Eventually, she and Yue Zhengyu developed this technique — Lustergloom Saint Sword. Under normal circumstances, light and darkness repelled each other. However, their saint and demon swords were formed by extremely compressed forms of light and dark energy. Before they collided and merged into one, the influence of their own energy towards the other was minimal. However, with the amplification of Angel's Descent and Fallen Angel's Descent, the full offensive potential of the saint and demon sword was brought out. Then, through a collision between extremely compressed light and dark energy, along with the strength of elemental energy, they detonated. This resulted in the explosion — a powerful attack that far exceeds their own individual powers.
This was the first time that the Lustergloom Saint Sword was displayed in front of others.
In that instant, even the Bluesilver Golden Light Array could only strip a small portion of the elemental energy but could not stop the force of the slash.
Yuanen Yehui's eyes shone brightly as she thought. 'Come on! Use your martial soul fusion skill. There is no other ability you have that can stand against the Lustergloom Saint Sword aside from that martial soul fusion skill.'
She had researched the Divine Dragon Transformation unleashed by Tang Wulin and Gu Yue in the past. That terrifyingly powerful offense meant that they could not keep it going for too long. The sooner she forced their hands to use that martial soul fusion skill, the greater her advantage would be in this battle. She would only have to wait until they unleased Divine Dragon Transformation. Then, she would take them on with the Lustergloom Saint Sword. If she could drag out the battle, she could definitely defeat them.
However, it was also at this moment that Yuanen Yehui saw Tang Wulin's shining scales. The scales looked like mirrors.
Amidst that violent explosion, Tang Wulin spread his arms out and shielded Gu Yue behind him, bearing the full brunt of the Lustergloom Saint Sword's attack.
The dragon scales on his body flickered rapidly, and Tang Wulin felt as if he was being dragged into an elemental storm. The feeling of being torn apart that resulted from the light and dark energy repelling one another seemed like it was destroying him.
His Supreme Golden Dragon Armor could only withstand attacks that were three times beyond his defensive capabilities! However, when he witnessed the explosion of the Lustergloom Saint Sword, he felt like he would not be able to withstand this attack. It was clear how strong this attack was.
The blood essence within Tang Wulin was being spent at an alarming speed, but he gritted his teeth and endured it.
His opponent had picked the perfect time to attack. The Lustergloom Saint Sword seemed to have erupted in front of Tang Wulin the instant the Curtain of Darkness was dispersed. The entire space undulated fiercely to the point where Gu Yue could not even use Spatial Retreat.
He had to withstand it! He could not take even a single step backward. Gu Yue was behind him!
The scales on his body buzzed, and Tang Wulin gritted his teeth. His right arm was dotted with flickering stars. He summoned his battle armor vambrace and turned it into a sphere of golden light which protected his chest, increasing his defensive powers.
The explosion continued for a few seconds, and by then, most of Tang Wulin's clothes were already torn apart. However, he stood his ground and did not take half a step backward.
"ROARRRR! " An excited dragon's roar was heard from Tang Wulin's body as suddenly took a step forward. The stronger the attack he endured, the more power his Supreme Golden Dragon Armor would be able to draw support from.
With that one step, another golden soul ring spread out from under his feet, and the remnants of the elemental storm produced by the explosion were dispersed. This time around, the Bluesilver Golden Light Array power increased several times over, and it enveloped the entire stage under the amplification of the Supreme Golden Dragon Armor.
Yuanen Yehui and Yue Zhengyu who had made that slash earlier suddenly felt their bodies being emptied. The saint sword, the demon sword, the Angel, the Fallen Angel behind them — they all instantly disintegrated.
The Blusilver Golden Light Array erupted and in the next instant, a silver light flashed as another figure appeared before them. The Elemental Staff struck the ground, and the orb on its tip flashed in four colors — green, blue, red, and yellow. Shortly after, an elemental storm exploded.
Yue Zhengyu and Yuanen Yehui were sent flying at the same time under the terrifying force of the elemental storm.
Yuanen Yehui was in a better shape, and she had immediately switched to her Titan Giant Ape martial soul. Her body puffed up as she morphed into the Diamond Titan and fended off the elemental storm. Yue Zhengyu, on the other hand, did not have this ability. A flash of silver moonlight flashed across, and he was removed from the stage by Elder Cai.
Gu Yue's expression was extremely grim. The Elemental Staff in her hand was aimed at Yuanen Yehui who was trying her level best to fend off the elemental storm. Balls of light orbs the size of millstones were shot around like drumfire.
Blue fireballs, azure balls of wind, sharp icicles, and meteorites. The four elements took their turns in an elemental explosion, and each of them was only meters away from one another.
Within the elemental storm, Yuanen Yehui had no way means to dodge the elemental onslaught. In fact, she could not have dodged it even if she wanted to. Gu Yue was controlling the elements that were being shot toward her with spiritual power that was far superior to her peers.
Yes, Gu Yue was furious. Usually, she would never use the full extent of her strength for fear of overshadowing Tang Wulin. However, she clearly saw a hint of blood on the edge of Tang Wulin's lips when she was unleashing the elemental storm. He was hurt
This was the first time anyone had ever seen the true terror that is Gu Yue, even the students of first grade class one.
This terrifying offense unleashed by the ball of light was pushing Yuanen Yehui backward, and she had amazing defensive capabilities.
Her Air Cannon could not even deflect the elemental onslaught.
Blue fireballs seared her exceedingly high temperature, distorting her Air Cannon so she could not deflect them.
The azure balls of wind were like miniature storms that she could not deflect, especially since her Air Cannon was still torn apart.
Sharp icicles revolved around her at high speed, shaving away her Air Cannon so she still could not deflect them.
The meteorites were exceptionally tough. Her Air Cannon could only slow them down but not destroy them.
Yuanen Yehui could still break the elemental onslaught being thrown at her with the innate offensive and defensive capabilities of the Diamond Titan. However, the elemental onslaught was forcing her backward. It was a head-on suppression!
Tang Wulin held his ground and did not attack. He was shocked as well. How could he not be? He had always known that Gu Yue was strong, and he knew that he was no match for her. However, he only realized the size of the chasm that existed between him and Gu Yue when he witnessed the full extent of her explosive strength.
