Tang Tian’s right eye was suddenly colored into a bloody red.
Something exploded out from deep within his body, and rushed to his brain. Tang Tian’s body trembled, and his pupils lost its focal length, his left blue eyes quickly became clean, and a surge of red came out from deep within, quickly occupying his eye.
The black flame, surged out quietly from inside his body, following along the surface of his body. In a blink of an eye, the black flames had swallowed Tang Tian, and inside the black flame, only a silhouette could be seen.
(TN: Super saiyan mode?)
He opened up his arms, quietly standing there, the black flames continuing to burn. A pair of red eyes, slowly lit up from inside the black flame, frightening people’s soul.
He was like a Devil God.
“That is….Black Flame!” Qiu Zhi Jun’s face changed, his voice trembling.
Sima Xiao turned his face, and stared blankly at his senior brother, senior brother….
It was the first time the brown haired young man had seen his senior brother panic, he was unable to think that his senior brother would make a face like that.
He could not stop himself from turning, and his gaze landed on the figure who was burning in black flames.
Lang Yu was beyond shocked when he saw Tang Tian enveloped in black flames, his eyes turned ice cold. When he saw that Tang Tian had the King Peacock Eyes, he already had the thought to cause trouble for Tang Tian. But now, the thought was gone, he did not know what the black flames were, but he knew, it was definitely not something he could mess with.
He was the master of Pavo Constellation, and he had been baptised by Pavo Constellation’s power for so many years, so the blood meridians in his body had long transformed. But he was very clear, that his blood meridians fell short facing against Tang Tian’s blood meridians.
Tu Ru Hai was also watching the battle, but for some reason, he did not personally attend. Out of the six, Meng Wei worried him the least, but never could he have thought that Meng Wei was the one who was facing the most trouble.
The battle progress was at a stalemate, Tang Tian’s blue left eye had caused him to be extremely interested, especially when he saw Tang Tian actually forcing Meng Wei to use the power of the constellation. He was surprised, but thought that that would be the end of the battle.
But when he saw Tang Tian release the black flames, he stood up.
Blood meridians….that definitely was the power of blood meridians!
His emotions were stirred, he had never heard of blood meridians that could produce black flames. His eyes were wide open, leaning forward, he forgot that he was staring at a screen.
Of all the current blood meridians Tu Ru Hai had interacted with, the highest grade one was a silver rank blood meridians of the equatorial palace halls. For the higher grade ones, he could only dream about them.
Was he an ancient race descendant? Or a lucky transformation?
Tu Ru Hai’s mind was flooded with countless thoughts, his eyes not leaving the screen. His eyes showed greed and passion, if he was able to produce a blood meridian that was of higher grade than a Equatorial Palace silver blood meridian, then his position of clan elder will definitely raise to another level!
There were many clan elders in Onyx Soul, but even though they were clan elders, their positions all differed to differences like heaven and earth. The more they gave to Onyx Soul, the higher their positions, the more power they would wield, and more wealth with that.
The reason why he had stirred up the dispute this time, was because of that, his position, no matter how messy it was in the Southern Sky’s 42 constellations, nothing would happen.
He had absolute qualifications and power in the Southern Sky’s 42 constellations. Whatever consequences that would arise due to the dispute, it was not related to him. He had structured everything to go according to his authority, so no one would able to pinpoint that it was his fault.
All these years, he had always wanted to climb up the ladder, but he knew, it was not possible.
Equatorial Palace silver blood was already extremely strong to him. For an even higher grade, the Ecliptic Palaces silver blood, it would be the most top grade existence, and was not a problem about money. To have an Ecliptic Palace silver blood, you must have an achievement in the Ecliptic Palaces constellations. In The 12 Ecliptic Palaces, some of the palaces were already close to destruction. But no one had ever had the intention to try fight the descendants of the Ecliptic Palaces.
Although the 12 Ecliptic Palaces had fought between one another, but they protected their descendants well and equally. The disciples of the 12 Palaces, could fight and kill one another, but if anyone tried to take the blood meridians, they would suffer the joint attacks from the 12 Ecliptic Palaces.
Furthermore, the current Lion King Lei Ang was the one who decided on that action, because regarding the blood meridians, they had already caused three big wars, and blood had formed streams and rivers.
Even for Onyx Soul, which was a huge organisation, they did not dare to start a war with these huge powerhouses.
Now, the only Ecliptic Palace silver blood was bought at an extravagant price in Onyx Soul, but from the Ecliptic Palaces themselves. There were specialized people in the 12 Ecliptic Palaces that did business. After attaining an achievement, but having nowhere to go, and having a difficult life, they could only use the blood meridian to exchange for their survival, or to have an offspring that could have better achievements.
For these, the respective palaces all closed one eye.
Even higher than that was the gold blood meridians.
That was an entirely different world.
Ecliptic Palace silver blood meridians, that must definitely be in Tang Tian’s body.
Thinking about that, Tu Ru Hai’s mind calmed down. If it was the Ecliptic Palace silver blood, then that means he could not touch him. But there was the possibility of it being an ancient blood meridian, if it was like that, then Tang Tian was definitely big fat meat.
Which constellation of the Ecliptic Palace could produce black flames? Thinking about that, he jumped out in fright.
It seemed that all the constellations could.
Leo Constellation was hailed for it’s fire, although a black flame was rarely seen, but if it was in the Leo constellation, the probability of it was much higher. Sagittarius Constellation also had the flaming arrow, and the probability of Scorpio constellation having it was even higher….
Tu Ru Hai did not have any idea, and started to worry about the end of the battle.
If Tang Tian really had a Ecliptic Palaces blood meridians, then Meng Wei was in danger!
In the battlefield, the most watched fight was between Tang Tian and Meng Wei, but there was another battle, that equally had many people watching, and that was the Lupus Army. In the Southern Sky’s 42 constellations, there had never been an army in all these low grade constellations.
The most important factor was that talent was hard to come by. Every army needed a military leader, and only with a military leader that could lead, that would then truly be an army.
The military leader must be able to lead and control over 10 men to attack martial artists.
Military leaders were more uncommon than martial artists. Any military leader able to command 10 people, would command a very high wage in any army. Whether a military leader is good or not depends on two factors. The first one was his commanding power, how many martial artist he could command, the higher level the higher grade he was. The second factor was tactics level, the situation on the battlefield is ever changing, and only by making the right decision at the right time, can you achieve the best results.
Most of the military leaders had weak personal strength, simply put, a military leader is actually another kind of assistant type martial artist. They usually train in one aspect, controlling aura. Control aura was the ability to control the subordinate’s capability of releasing their respective sword aura or blade aura etc. The higher the control aura, the higher the commanding power.
Upon hearing that Lupus Constellation had an army, everyone thought it was a joke. Not only until they heard that two Heaven Road List martial artists had died and got injured by the army, did they start to get interested in it.
So, this small town really produced an army?
Holding on to this suspicion, the Lupus army started to attract a lot of attention. Especially when people saw the one leading the army was actually a spirit general, it garnered even more curiosity.
Military Leaders who were spirit generals were hailed as spirit military generals, and were not uncommon. Especially for commanding a strength of 20 and below, most of the armies, organisations would use spirit military generals. For spirit generals that had commanding power of over 50, were extremely expensive, and was too difficult to bear for any organisation body. Also, spirit generals had limited knowledge, although they had commanding power, but compared to people, they were not flexible and agile enough. They could be used for small number of troops, but very rarely will they be used for a larger number.
When everyone saw that the number of the army was 200 people, they were all astonished.
A spirit general that had commanding power of 200, its price would definitely be sky high. But very quickly, people realized that there was yet another spirit general in the troops, commanding 50 people. If that was the case, the commanding power of the poker face spirit general was 150.
A spirit general with commanding power of 200 had a sky-high price, but a spirit general with commanding power of 150, was equally sky-high.
So he was a nouveau riche!
But everyone was still shaking their heads, the spirit general had sufficient commanding power, but to rely on such a army to defeat three members of the Tu Family Six Guards, that was simply wishful thinking. Many people resolved their own suspicions, and became uninterested in the battle, thinking that the two heaven road list martial artist might had been too careless and thus eliminated by the cannon fodder army.
The troops behind Bing were shaped in a weird fashion, one column after another, gathering behind him in the shape of an umbrella.
What kind of formation was that?
The people who were focusing on the spirit general in the battlefield could not help but sneer. The spirit general was truly indulging in his own fantasies, to actually form such a strange formation. Using spirit military leader to fight in the battle, made everyone believe that Tang Tian had given up on the army, and with the spirit military leader showing such a strange formation, everyone only found it funnier.
Bing was very calm.
Although the cannon fodder had only trained in the umbrella formation tactic for a few days, but to think of relying on the few days of time, and master the formation, that was impossible.
But luckily, his real intention was not there. He had countless tactics, but new that to rely on the mob to fight the opponent, was terribly difficult, and following conventional ways to fight was definitely useless. If he had 2-3 months of time, he had confidence that he could bring the cannon fodder to trample on the three enemies, but not of current.
If he wanted to obtain victory currently, he could only rely on an unconventional gambit.
The three opponents were experienced in fighting, and did not rush into the formation, but went a circle around them, and ran to the back of the troops. It was the first time they were witnessing such a strange formation, although they did not know much about the formation, but they could tell that the back of the formation was a big weak spot.
But, that was where they met Tang Yi.
Tang Yi’s commanding power was 60. Regular sergeants had commanding power of 50, but he was a gold ranked staff sergeant, so he could control 10 more.
To command 50 people was extremely easy to him.
The 50 men under him were extremely fast, and rushed towards the three opponents. Without bullshitting, the Zanbato in his hands slashed out, and almost at the same time, the Lupus martial artists behind him all released their scimitars in unison.
A large blade aura hissed forward, scaring the three of them. They immediately dodged to one side, and increased the distance between them.
“This spirit military leader is somewhat troublesome.” Old Feng’s face was gloomy, along with the other two.
Tang Yi had judged their attacking route very accurately, and it felt like they were exploiting an opportunity.
“The troops are changing formation.” Amethyst Lady reminded.
As expected, behind Tang Yi, the troops were quickly changing their formation.
“Rush over, no matter how powerful he is, they are only 50 people!” Old Feng clenched his teeth: “Man Zhu, you lead the attack!”
“Ok!” Man Zhu whose stature towered over everybody else agreed, his brute strength, was most suited for these kind of situations.
Seeing the three of them rushing towards him, Tang Yi remained expressionless, and once again raised the Zanbato in his hands.
