Chapter 63: Enlightenment In Battle

A giant dragon covered in golden scales, emanating an astonishing aura, appeared before everyone at Shrek.

No one had expected that Yu Xiaogang, whose spirit power cultivation was even lower than theirs, could cooperate with the dean and the woman called Liu Erlong to summon such a huge dragon. The aura it exuded even made them feel submissive.

At this moment, the three of them were surrounded by a huge triangular pillar of light, completely transformed into a golden dragon. Luo Sanpao, with his dragon eyes, stared firmly at Gu Yi.

Yu Xiaogang estimated that now that Flender had reached the level of Spirit Douluo, and although Liu Erlong was a bit weaker, she had also reached the rank of Spirit Saint. Combined with the rich knowledge he had acquired over the years and the spiritual power enhancement he gained from practicing the demonic technique, it made it easier for him to control the fused Luo Sanpao.

Although Gu Yi's battle with Chen Xin before was impressive, he had also estimated it. That attack was Gu Yi's limit, possessing the strength of a Titled Douluo with a single strike. In this regard, Gu Yi's threat was actually not that great. Yu Xiaogang was confident that he could force Gu Yi to retreat.

However, Gu Yi showed no fear at all. Even though Flender had made some progress over the years, advancing from Spirit Saint to Rank 82 Spirit Douluo... His foundation was still too weak, especially with Yu Xiaogang as a hindrance. With their current martial spirit fusion technique, they could at most guarantee not to die at the hands of a Titled Douluo.

As for anything else, forget about it. Unless Yu Xiaogang's cultivation also received an upgrade. But with his current situation, without the help of the Immortal Herb, Rank 29 was the peak of his life.

Gu Yi also summoned his martial spirit, with five spirit rings revolving around him, and the first and fourth spirit skills lit up in succession. A large amount of heaven and earth energy converged towards him.

Having witnessed that battle, Yu Xiaogang naturally understood that Gu Yi could elevate his strength to a level comparable to that of a Titled Douluo thanks to this move alone. It all depended on this move. Otherwise, he would just be an ordinary Spirit King.

With a thought, Luo Sanpao, transformed into a golden holy dragon, directly spat out a golden lightning bolt, attacking Gu Yi who was gathering heaven and earth energy. The power of this move was extremely strong, difficult for even Spirit Douluos to withstand.

However, Gu Yi had already undergone a transformation during the seven days prior. With his mastery of the fourth spirit skill becoming even more proficient... The speed of gathering energy had also improved significantly. Within a few breaths, his body was filled with heaven and earth energy, and with each breath, more energy entered his body, forming a state of continuous circulation.

Gu Yi directly used Tai Chi to control the golden lightning bolt, feeling its essence, and then extinguished it with his powerful energy.

"This method again?" Yu Xiaogang, relying on Luo Sanpao's perspective, saw Gu Yi's amazing technique and still found it incredible. This method had long surpassed the limits of his long-suppressed mind.

Tang San felt that Gu Yi's technique was somewhat similar to Controlling Crane, Capturing Dragon, both using softness to resolve power. But now, it was obvious that Gu Yi was more adept and more powerful.

Gu Yi also stood in the sky, confronting the golden holy dragon, but he seemed particularly small. Looking at Flender, who had his eyes closed below, providing spirit power to the golden holy dragon, Gu Yi came up with a new strategy.

Just now, during the seven days of continuous experimentation and mastery of heaven and earth energy, he had learned some interesting techniques. It would be perfect to deal with Yu Xiaogang now.

But what spirit beast should he use?

Gu Yi gathered a large amount of energy outside his body. In the shocked gazes of everyone, this natural elemental energy actually condensed into a white tiger. It looked almost identical to Dai Mubai's martial spirit, with the character "King" clearly visible on its forehead, but the rest of the details appeared rough, and this white tiger lacked any aura, appearing like an inanimate object.

Even though it had taken shape, it was only a cluster of elemental energy.

"Could it be that Brother Yi has a twin martial spirit?" Oscar understood that the scene before him couldn't be explained by twin martial spirit, but he still found it incredible. Was this the martial path that Brother Yi had always talked about?

At this moment, Yu Xiaogang's perception had greatly improved, far surpassing that of others. This was just a gathering of energy, the resulting attack would not be able to break through the defense golden holy dragon.

Gu Yi controlled the white tiger, knowing exactly what was missing in his technique. Aura, the divine presence belonging to the king of beasts. In this regard, Gu Yi was not lacking.

The source of his third spirit skill was a blood tiger, a king of beasts exuding a powerful aura. Gu Yi directly simulated the state and aura of the blood tiger with his spiritual power.

For a moment, everyone felt a chill, unable to move under the suppression, only a few teachers could still move freely. Even Tang San, who had a past as an assassin, was affected.

The killing intent and majesty emanated from the huge and incomparable white tiger in the sky. As if it were a true king of beasts, majestic and domineering, its killing intent palpable.

Although Dai Mubai was having difficulty breathing under the pressure, his eyes were incredibly fiery. If only he could also exude such a domineering aura. Although his martial spirit was a white tiger, it was still far inferior to the white tiger Gu Yi condensed, as if Gu Yi was the true owner of the White Tiger Martial Spirit.

"Now it's fair." Gu Yi used this ability for the first time, and it seemed to have achieved good results, nodding in satisfaction.

However, at this moment, Zhu Zhuqing felt something strange.

Yu Xiaogang witnessed this scene with his own eyes and still found it incredible. Over fifty years of accumulated knowledge seemed to have collapsed completely at this moment. Gu Yi's situation had also been heard from Flender, and he understood how Gu Yi had transformed from a weak human martial spirit owner to such a powerful one.

"Go, my pet."

Gu Yi seemed to have broken free from some kind of constraint, shouting in a rather childish manner. The tense atmosphere seemed to relax a bit at this moment.

In fact, he had never noticed that he had been suppressing himself over the years, feeling bound and restricted. Many things were left undone. Or maybe he had noticed but deliberately chose to ignore them.

Over these years, although it seemed like many things had changed, nothing had actually changed. Perhaps Shrek wasn't suitable for him after all. Today's events were the final straw that broke the camel's back for him.

Having realized this, Gu Yi's temperament underwent a change, and his aura underwent a transformation. With a shake of his spirit power, he reached the pinnacle of a Spirit King, only one spirit ring away from becoming a Spirit Emperor.

Indeed, one's mindset still needed to change.

Over the years, his realm had continuously improved, and his martial will had not fallen behind, but these were not the most fundamental things. The most fundamental thing should be his original intention. In this regard, he couldn't find it at Shrek.
