Chapter 1023: Threefold Martial Soul?
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo looked solemn. He would not allow himself to be defeated no matter what.
In the next moment, a figure rose from behind Su Mo and a long Sword Martial Soul appeared.
The long Sword Martial Soul was completely silver. It glinted and was extremely sharp.
The Sword Martial Soul was a Rank 2 Heaven Class Martial Soul!
Su Mo had devoured the Sword Martial Soul, but he had forgotten whom it had belonged to because he had devoured too many Martial Souls so much that he had lost count.
Su Mo’s aura rose by a few notches after using the power of the Martial Soul. He seemed sharper and more severe.
Zhan Luan sniggered disdainfully when he saw that Su Mo wanted to use the Rank 2 Heaven Class Martial Soul to pierce through his defense. Su Mo was too naive!
He had thought that Su Mo would have a very powerful card hidden up his sleeves, but had not expected it to be just a Rank 2 Heaven Class Martial Soul.
Countless spectators of the battle shook their heads secretly when they saw this. Su Mo’s use of the Martial Soul was futile because there was a limit to how much Martial Soul could help to increase one’s combat strength.
Of course, the higher ranking the Martial Soul, or the more special the Martial Soul was, the more one’s combat strength would increase. For example, Zhan Luan’s Earth Martial Soul, or his Giant Martial Soul.
However, just as everyone was shaking their heads, another figure emerged from behind Su Mo, and two more Sword Martial Souls emerged.
The two Sword Martial Souls were low ranking, but had already reached the Heaven Class.
The three Sword Martial Souls floated behind Su Mo, glinting with sharpness, making Su Mo seem peerless as his sword Qi suffocated the crowd.
Everyone was stunned when they saw this. They stared at the scene incredulously with wide eyes.
Three Sword Martial Souls?
Threefold Martial Soul?
How was this possible?
Everyone was stunned. If the Twin Martial Souls would only occur once in ten thousand years, then the Threefold Martial Soul only existed in legends.
Many could not help but rub their eyes as they could not believe what they had seen. But the fact was that this was true and they had to believe it.
Those from the Emperor Xuan Palace and Sky-sea Pavilion were all stunned. They wanted to protect Su Mo because they had thought highly of his talent.
But they had never expected that Su Mo would have a Threefold Martial Soul.
Sikong Yan and Wenren Tiandu both had strange expressions on their faces. They finally understood why Su Mo could become the descendant of the Firmament Palace!
This talent was one that no one in the Firmament World could surpass!
The calmest person around was Xi’er, for she knew of Su Mo’s ability to devour Martial Souls.
Even though she was uncertain if Su Mo’s Devouring Martial Soul could absorb other Martial Souls, it was easy for her to understand once she thought of the strangeness of the Devouring Martial Soul.
Zhan Luan, like everyone else, stared incredulously at Su Mo with wide eyes.
“This…This isn’t possible!” Zhan Luan muttered to himself, confused.
Was this some kind of joke?
Threefold Martial Soul?
Zhan Luan felt that this was very surreal. The Threefold Martial Soul only existed in legends. This was too much!
Yet, while Zhan Luan was reluctant to believe it, the truth was undeniable.
Su Mo’s aura grew stronger and stronger. Zhan Luan gritted his teeth and said coldly, “Your Threefold Martial Soul is useless with such low levels!”
“Is that so? You don’t know until you’ve tried it!”
Su Mo sneered when he heard that. If he had not been worried that he would startle the world, he would have used eight or nine Martial Souls.
It would not be a problem for him to use eight or nine Martial Souls with his mental control that he had now.
In fact, Su Mo was uncertain how powerful he would be if he used eight or nine Martial Souls since he had never tried it before.
Then, Su Mo’s figure flickered and he rushed towards Zhan Luan. He waved his Demonic Sword and three large rays of sword Qi attacked Zhan Luan in a triangular shape.
This attack was stronger than before, and the peerless sharpness permeated throughout a thousand-mile radius. The power of the three Sword Martial Souls was completely mobilized by Su Mo, increasing the power behind his attack by more than half.
Zhan Luan grew solemn when he saw this. Even though he had said that the Threefold Martial Soul was useless, he still dared not underestimate it.
After all, no one has ever seen the Threefold Martial Soul and no one knew how powerful it was.
“Gather!” Zhan Luan bellowed. The Earth Martial Soul pressed forth as countless streams of earth property Spiritual Qi gathered towards him. An earth property armor enveloped him completely, forming a dense defense.
Zhan Luan did not attack, but instead, chose to focus on defense. His strongest suit was his ability to defend and as long as Su Mo did not break through his defense, hewould have plenty of ways to defeat Su Mo.
Boom boom boom!!
There were three consecutive crashes as three sword Qis hit Zhan Luan, causing a terrifying explosion.
Boom boom boom!
A force swept through in all directions and the three rays of sword Qi crumbled, turning into a dense sword rain that pierced the surrounding space.
Zhan Luan’s massive figure was forced to retreat several dozen miles. His armor had been torn apart and there were red marks on his skin.
However, Zhan Luan was not injured. Even though he had backed away, hehad managed to block the blow.
“Ha, ha, ha!”
Zhan Luan laughed madly, looking arrogant. He said, “Su Mo, so what if you have a Threefold Martial Soul? You still can’t break through my invincible defense.”
Zhan Luan felt very pleased. The Threefold Martial Soul wasn’t that powerful after all!
Legend says that martial artists with a Threefold Martial Soul had extremely powerful combat strength. He would be peerless within his generation once all three Martial Souls appeared.
It seemed that legends were just legends. This was completely untrue!
What Zhan Luan did not know was that Su Mo did not have a Threefold Martial Soul. The true Threefold Martial Soul’s power was several times more powerful compared to this.
While Su Mo had three Martial Souls, they were just three different Martial Souls layered one upon another. Its power was far lesser than the true Threefold Martial Soul.
Otherwise, his combat strength would not only have increased by just a little.
“I can’t break through it? You’ll be defeated soon!”
Su Mo smiled. He had seen that his attack was closing up to the limit of Zhan Luan’s defense.
It was no longer difficult to defeat Zhan Luan because he still had a card up his sleeve.
Then, Su Mo did not say anything else. His figure shimmered and he rushed towards Zhan Luan rapidly.
“You want to defeat me? Dream on!”
Zhan Luan said coldly. Then he flew towards the earth rapidly.
The water in the Jade Cloud Lake below had long disappeared. The bottom of the lake was filled with criss-crossed markings made by swords, forming a long and huge abyss; the lake waters had flowed into the abyss.
Zhan Luan flew down rapidly and he landed on the earth’s surface in the blink of an eye. He turned and entered the earth and disappeared.
Su Mo stopped when he saw this, confusion coloring his face. What was Zhan Luan doing?
He did not think Zhan Luan was trying to escape because he still did not seem to be losing. Furthermore, Zhan Luan’s pride would not allow him to escape.
Su Mo did not chase after him in the ground. Instead, he sized up the ground solemnly. He knew that Zhan Luan might still have a powerful trick up his sleeves!
