The Legend Of The Dragon King - Chapter 542
The strongest students in the outer court were the one-word battle armor masters, with the exception of higher grade students who had already entered the inner court . They were still considered outer court students before they participated in the inner court examination . There were only two such students, Mo Jue and Like Qiankun .
That was why they were the powerhouses of the inner court .
She was not called the strongest in the outer court for no reason . Many students'faces turned fanatical when Mo Jue walked onto the stage . She was their idol!
Shortly after this, Mo Jue and Li Qiankun were scheduled to enter the inner court together for the trial . They could join Shrek Academy's inner court students and acquire great privilege as long as they passed the trial .
Mo Jue represented the third grade in the third match . This basically meant a sure win for third grade class one in the third match!
After three one-against-one matches, the final result would be determined by a two-against-two match . The only question was who would represent first and second grade's side, and whether that person was capable of posing a challenge to Mo Jue in the upcoming match .
Ye Xinglan was also walking to the competition stage step by step in a similar manner . She was silent and did not exchange information much with her companions before she ascended the stage . However, her entire demeanor began to change as soon as she stepped onto the competition stage's pedestal .
Ye Xinglan brought an indescribable constrained feeling to the ordinary students as if she were a stormy cloud, ready to break out at any moment .
"She is suppressing herself . "Yali stared in astonishment at Ye Xinglan as she ascended to the stage slowly .
Mo Jue arrived onstage one step before Ye Xinglan . She had only taken one glance before she saw her opponent walking from the opposite side, drawn in by the vital energy .
Yet another girl competitor . The first and second grade's team sent out female students for all three one against one matches .
Compared to Yuanen Yehui and Wu Siduo, Ye Xinglan had a less stellar reputation in the outer court . First of all, she was the last to enter the outer court . Secondly, she usually kept a low profile and rarely appeared in public unless she was attending class .
Her presence was noticeable only because she joined Tang Wulin's little group . But Tang Wulin shone so brightly that most people noticed only him but had little knowledge of his other group members . Only the opponents of Yuanen Yehui and Wu Siduo could truly understand that Tang Wulin wasn't the only powerful one in the group;every member could hold their own .
Ye Xinglan ascended the stage . The entire crowd grew quiet once again .
Xu Lizhi had already stood up under the stage, tightly clenching his fists .
Just as third grade class one's students investigated them, they had similarly investigated the students from third grade class one . Mo Jue was one of the two one-word battle armor masters in the class!
In the third one against one match, Ye Xinglan had the imposing prospect of facing up against the strongest opposition in the end .
Elder Cai peered at Ye Xinglan once, then she looked toward Mo Jue and announced, "Begin . "
This time was different from the previous match where the two parties abruptly dashed toward each other . After Elder Cai had announced the start of the fight, neither competitor launched an attack at first .
The light around Mo Jue's body had visibly dimmed . She walked forth slowly . With every step, the dimness increased . Circles upon circles of soul rings arose from the bottom of her feet .
Purple! Purple! Purple! Purple! Purple! There were five impressive purple-colored soul rings .
A thousand-year spirit soul was capable of withstanding three soul rings . In other words, there were two thousand-year spirit souls in Mo Jue's body right now . However, one would notice upon closer inspection that the two outer soul rings behind were a deeper color, the dominant feature of a ten thousand year soul ring .
The spirit ascension platform was capable of raising the spirit soul into a higher level . Outstanding genius soul masters could possibly enhance their soul rings'level through the spirit ascension platform, but the process of advancing became more difficult with more soul rings .
However, it was very apparent that Mo Jue would certainly advance her fourth and fifth soul rings to a ten thousand year level in the future . At the same time, five soul rings also implied that she was a Soul King!
She was a five soul ring King-level powerhouse . Mo Jue was nineteen years old this year . Not only had she attained Soul King level at this age, but she was also a one-word battle armor master . This only occurred frequently in Shrek Academy . As a sure inner court student, she was one of the strongest in the outer court present .
One after another, black feathers emerged from within her long hair . The feathers spread from her hair down to her body, following which the force on her body became thicker .
It was the Black Swan! This was Mo Jue's martial soul .
The swan had always been the supremely elegant living creature among the soul beasts . Ordinary swan-type soul beasts were skilled in recovery type abilities . Legend spoke of a being named the Emerald Swan, one of the Ten Great Beasts . Her cultivation base was also the top among the Ten Great Beasts .
Even so, Mo Jue's Black Swan was not skilled in recovery, nor was she an auxiliary-type soul master . She was a true soul master, an assault type who was an expert in casting all sorts all sorts of spells and long-range attacks . Her reputation in the third grade class one had triumphed even Li Qiankun .
If Li Qiankun was the mainstay if third grade class one, then the Black Swan Mo Jue was the spiritual pillar of third grade class one .
There were always a few important personages in each grade of Shrek Academy's outer court . Yuanen Yehui, Yue Zhengyu, and Duan Hunxiao were undoubtedly the stars of second grade . The third grade had Li Qiankun and Mo Jue . Just as with the present situation of the first grade, it was extremely rare for many students to achieve this level .
Ye Xinglan stopped moving toward Mo Jue, who was walking slowly ahead . Ye Xinglan's gaze was determined . She would never allow her opponent, a one-word battle armor master, to affect her will to fight .
She stood on the same spot, her entire body straight as a javelin . She did not release her soul rings but continued to stand there . The force of her whole body was rising and withdrawing continuously .
Mo Jue squinted her eyes, her sharp senses telling her that this opponent was anything but ordinary . She was not careless . As a fellow Shrek Academy student, she was aware that the academy was rich with monsters .
Wu Rui seemed unassailable, but he was defeated . Ye Wu obviously had the upper hand, yet he too was taken down .
It was her turn now . She would never act recklessly no matter how advantageous it seemed .
The Black Swan of darkness attribute .
Mo Jue raised her right hand, and as the first soul ring on her body flashed, her right hand touched the space in the direction of Ye Xinglan .
A ghastly sight suddenly materialized . A gigantic black skull appeared out of thin air and flew toward Ye Xinglan .
It was at this exact split-second that Ye Xinglan finally moved .
Her whole body glowed with a dazzling radiance as a streak of sword's consciousness shot out from her body in a half a second . The intensity of the consciousness caused the arena's protective shield to give a shudder .
A ghastly scene emerged at once . A gigantic black-colored skull appeared out of thin air and flew toward Ye Xinglan .
The sword's energy was awe-inspiring . Like a meteor, she dashed straight at Mo Jue .
Incredibly, the black skull in the air dissipated as soon as Ye Xinglan moved .
Shock flashed in Mo Jue's eyes . How was this possible? The skull was her first soul skill, Weakness Curse .
Physical and elemental defenses were ineffective against the Weakness Curse . Once someone was hit, they would sink into a period of weakness lasting ten seconds while at least twenty percent of their soul power would be suppressed . Only a spirit type soul skill was capable of resisting it .
But Ye Xinglan was obviously not launching a spirit-type ability . It was the sword's consciousness, the sword's consciousness! The condensed sword's consciousness of hers collapsed the Weakness Curse immediately .
How could her sword's consciousness be so powerful at such a young age?
While her expression changed to fear, Mo Jue waved her arms as two pitch black light orbs fused in front of her body . Simultaneously a pair of black wings spread out behind her back . With a flap of her wings, she floated into the air .
In the split second when the two black orbs fused, a dark green skull emerged . Upon appearing, the skull shot a stream of dark green flames in Ye Xinglan's direction .
