        • sure the author said they’d crush him like an ant, but it could easily have been “the bros loved their sister deeply and despite their rage they respected their sister’s dying wish…”

          honestly i feel that the author claiming they would have killed him after Xu’s death is a mistake,
          she has to be willing to use her own ability of sacrifice to save him, the bros love her, why would they kill the person who tried his utmost to save her and then was gifted her legacy, it makes no sense

          • But if he showed disregard and run to another woman right when the fighting was done, I’m sure they would feel differently. I think this line was referring to that his love was so strong, even in death, would never wane. THEN they believed her sacrifice was justified. They did say if he woke up and did some BS they would kill him on the spot.

                • I hope you are right man, It would break my heart to see the spirit that marks Tang San mom´s legacy to him be given away just like that, and even that super special ring that grows with him… not to mention his blue silver dominion.
                  It would nab a BIG chunk of his power, taking part of the power that makes his body so special too even If he conserved his hammer with nine 50000-100000 rings
                  I mean, what the hell, why would Xiao Wu even need his damn awesome rings, she always created her own to begin with, as for the spirit power transfusion… Couldn´t he just pass that? Hell, If Tang San loses an arm because of that I will sue Xiao Wu, he is a national treasure dammit.

        • Getting hurt in a group battle? That wasn’t even her fault. Tang San got hurt too, many times, as did almost everyone else. Pretty much just as much as Xiao Wu.

          In fact, her getting wounded actually encouraged Tang San to do BETTER.And the amount of times she got hurt like that was about 3-4 times…. in a relationship spanning 10 years, your saying that getting hurt 3-4 times in a battle (Once was actually Tang San’s fault, and the other was during a battle where the entire team was weaker than the enemy. Also, she was actually incredibly important to victory in every case she was in… she was actually HELPFUL, and AFTER she caused a big help did she get hurt.

          The time she got kidnapped made Tang San careless and had him absorb a 2000 yr spirit instead of a 1000 year one. So her getting captured (and not really in danger, so that was actually a misunderstanding) benefited him. And she only got kidnapped ONCE.

          In fact, Xiao Wu didn’t actually get in his way. They were basically the perfect tag team.

          So not only did Xiao Wu not get hurt that often, it was after she was useful (and saying someone getting hurt in group battle is getting in the way is not fair).

Like in the case of 100K beast they always drop, or if a spirit beast willingly sacrifices themselves it has a high chance, as well as in the case of these MFDS’S their hatred for the person who killed them reached the absolute limit so a spirit bone has an increased chance of dropping.

                • To elaborate, here’s an example. 2 spirit beasts are born at the same time, in the same place. They grow up in the same environment, at the same rate. They now have the same level of cultivation, but one cultivated by killing and eating people and other spirit beasts, and the other cultivated by getting lucky and finding a batch of herbs that were saturated with so much spirit power that it would make Tang San die from jealousy. They have totally different tendencies, tastes, and preferences even though they have so many things in common. One would probably attack things on sight, while the other would probably observe without being seen.

                  Oh, right, I just thought of something. Remember how all the Clear Sky Hammers were slightly different from one another, even though they’re all clansmen, all living in the same place, training in the same place? I think it’s like that. Even under the same conditions, no two people will end up being the same.

                      And if Hu Lie Na also had an External Bone, it wouldn’t prove that it is by chance because different species would have different types of bones, and her External Spirit Bone was a different type.

                      In fact, so far, there hasn’t been 2 a case where the same species of beast gave 2 different types of Spirit Bones.

So he now has a breastplate with the 8 spider lances connected to it. The thing that makes connecting armor from his other spirit bones may be the ability that the external spirit bone would have had anyway.

        As far as normal spirit bones go, he does not have torso, right arm, or right leg. Or was it left arm and leg? Anyway, an arm and a leg.

It takes Tang San three whole days to fully absorb the Spirit Bone following which his intelligence greatly increases, unlocks his spiritual force which exerts equalling that of a Spirit Douluo’s due to his constant cultivation of the Purple Demon Eye since childhood and also gives him unique abilities.”

            And the Spider Lance isn’t a Torso, but an EXTERNAL Spirit Bone.

            Chapter 38 actually stated that the Spider Lance WAS NOT a Torso Spirit Bone.

            External Spirit Bones are an exception to the rule…

            And your quotes and pages had nothing to do with what we were talking about (Though I thank you for trying to remind me).

            Torso, chest… I think my meaning was obvious, even if the word used was wrong.

            And my comments previously already stated that he already had a head, arm, and leg spirit bone along with an external Spirit bone.

            Tang San needs 1 arm, one leg, and one Torso (chest, same difference).

            He needs 3 more Spirit bones to complete the set.

    • So as far as I understood there are 2 factors: first the probability that a spirit beast actually drops a sprit bone, which is determined by its cultivation, and its feelings towards you. And then the question what kind of spirit bone is dropped. But at that point, I would say it’s pretty random, because if it wasn’t everybody would just hunt the spirit beasts with the best bones. As for external spirit bones, it’s logical that they depend on the species.. why would a bird drop spider legs? So birds can probably drop wings, spiders and insect drop extra legs, or exoskeletons (probablby what gave the 8 spider lances the ability to form an armour), animals with tails can drop tails, etc…

      • Well, I never implied a bird giving a spider leg or anything really. I was talking about IN Species…

        Outside of 100 year spirits, Spirit bones are rare, I realize that too (and it is mostly by chance).

        Like if a Bird gave a left leg bone, would the same spirit killed by another person also give a left leg bone? Or would the right leg bone also have a chance to appear?

        I mean, the Spider could have also given a Torso or head spirit bone too… but instead, Tang San killed the Spider and the same type of spirit bone came out.

        So, could it be that all Spirit Beasts of the same type only give that one type of Spirit Bone?

        So Man Faced Spider only gives external. Xiao Wu’s rabbit type beast only gives arm bones etc etc.?

        And lots of people DO hunt Spirit Beasts in hopes of getting a Spirit Bone, but just getting one is too rare unless if the Beast is super pissed, or gives it up of their own free will…

        Cause an External Spirit Bone is rare, even among Spirit Bones….

        But Tang San is a Xianxia character.

        The main problem is that this is the 1st time we are seeing the same Spirit Beast give a Spirit Bone.. and both bones happened to be the same…

        Was it Tang San’s Xianxia Luck to get the same Spirit Bones (Just getting the Spirit Bone itself is super lucky in itself) or do the Man Faced Spiders only give the Spider Lance?

I mean, the author never mentionned anything like that, but if you take an RPG as comparison, where you can also equip the different body parts, you usually get a bonus when you have more than one piece of the same set. But let’s just wait, at this point we don’t have enough info. Maybe later TS will get a BSG-Torsobone or something like that, and we’ll get more info about spirit bones.

                      As for another kind of bone that spiders could drop, as I already mentionnen, it could very well be an exoskeleton-bone, since spiders don’t have bones, but are just gelatinous stuff inside a hard shell. (and exoskeletton even litterally means “external bone”)

      • ‘Just following orders’ never really worked as an excuse for me – nobody forced them to join Spirit Hall and besides, ‘I was just following orders’ is the favourite excuse for everybody who commited war crimes.

  8. Drats, I have to change one of the idea I had for my fanfic now. Meh, not a important one anyway!

    Still, Xiao Wu spirit Bone is so useful! I wonder why it granted him 2 abilities..

    Im surprised Bibi Dong know about the Sacrifice ability, that must be one of the most hidden secrets of spirit beasts…

    ========

    Still the only fanfic about Douluo Dalu on fanfiction.net… but still no favorite or reviews… I wonder, what Im doing wrong?

  9. Watching their disappearing backs, Bibi Don’g eyes flashed with austere light,
    “Titan Giant Ape, and still that Sky Blue Bull Python creature. Fine, you’ve destroyed my happy occasion, wait until I have the time and I’ll come for your spirit rings.”

    Seriously fuck that bitch. She has a control complex that the 7 devils needs to correct… with death.

    • What important is that Hu Leina still not as hopeless and incurable as her master is.
      Thanks to Tang San’s goddam handsome face and unmovable love , the fox chick totally fall for him(bitch always love someone occupied).
      Now Spirt Hall can avoid totally annihilated from history by appointing Hu Leina as pontiff but actually Tang Sec’s nominee.

        • Also, I don’t think he will kill Bibi Dong, Grandmaster still has a thing for her, and if I remember correctly, when she asked him if he would do the same for her (saving her from sure death… was the episode where he went to spirit hall to persuade her not to kill TS), he answered yes. So I don’t think he’ll let TS kill her… Probably just cripple her and take all her spirit bones, what in my eyes would be even better for such a power-obsessed bitch.

  10. Thanks for the chapter!
    Almost checks daily to see if the’s an update, and when there is, I squeel like the fangirl I am… 😉

    O.o I wonder who the riders are, and what Tang San is going to do to not get overrun by the horses… And stupid internet security won’t let me access the raws to find out… 😦
    Panifull, painfull waiting…. *sight*

    Something I refelected over; the whole conflict between spirit hall and Tang Hao/Tang sect only started because the former supreme pontiff was greedy and wanted the ring and spirit bone from Tang Sans mother…. I wonder if Bibi Dong ever reflected over that, or if she’s long since been blinded by greed and hade/sadness. Maybe Hu Liena would reflect over it and wonder why spirit hall have to be enemies with people who just want to protect their loved ones…

  11. Thanks for the chapter!

    So, his new spirit ring seems to have a boost ability similar to the Spider God Possession in that it raises his overall abilities but at a high cost of spirit power rather than using a year of cultivation for each second of activation. Maybe Teacher can show him how to better control that so it uses less spirit power and is more stable?

  12. Wow, I was pretty close. I guessed the ability would be her invincibility with less restrictions/the most broken thing possible. Turns out it was teleportation with less restrictions, plus invincibility as a bonus. That probably is more broken.

  13. Thanks for the chapter!

    Damn Tang San is OP for his current level. He got 2 abilities from Xiao Wu’s spirit bone (just that teleport is ludicrous. 100m for 1% so if using all spirit power you could travel 10km almost instantly), and overall boost for his all abilities and then another* external spirit bone from that spider. I want to see if Grandmaster knows or can say anything about that armour.

  14. I got a question… how will Tang San other spirit bone evolve if they don’t have a drain ability?

    Grandmaster clearly said they grow along with the user then why Tang San skull didnt change after two rings absorbtion? The only changed happened once he killed that spider and used drain!

    So how does a spirit bone evolve, when it doesnt have a drain ability? Even after his spirit “rebirth”, where he already had the skull spirit bone, it didnt “evolve” like the Spider Lances.

    I sense a plot hole here…

    Like

      • I suggest you read back to read Douluo Dalu – 038 – External Spirit Bone, that chapter explain everything…

        Even normal spirit bones should be able to evolve along the user, as the younger you get one, the better it is.

        Of course, it could be related to teh fact if they are compatible with the user spirit rings or not… That’s the only plausible theory I found.

        I’ll wait for Grandmaster analysis though before making a final judgement. Can’t wait for teh next chapter!

  16. I assume Xiao Wu’s spirit bone gives Tang San two abilities because her soul still resides in it. I mean, she is gonna come back, eventually. Her soul still exists. Maybe the Golden Body protection is a manifestation of Xiao Wu’s desire to protect her lover. And both of the abilities were hers to begin with.

    Or maybe I’m just rambling.

    • Tang San passed Dai Mubai. Mubai was (is) level 64 when TS left to meet Xiao Wu (and in story time that was about 15-20 days ago (I don’t remember if it’s exactly said how long it took TS to reach the forest but since entering it’s been 12 days))

                  • Dont worry, it makes sense.

                    Lots of story with OP characters like that often become close to gods. Or at least Superman-like.

                    I never liked Dragonball (drawing style is part of it for that one… banana hair, really?! and the french version is plain awful) or Superman, they had too much powers. In Martial God Asura ( a other Chinese novel), the main character clearly gonna get there someday but I prefer it to Tang San, simply because he wasnt born awesome, he became awesome.

                    Anyway, back to Tang San… I wouldnt be surprise he become a “god”, as even his setback (like the demon spider preventing him to escape), made him more powerful in the end. Even if he restaure Xiao Wu and lose a arm to restaure her by removing Xiao Wu spirit bone, I feel like he wont need both of his arms to be OP. IF he lose his arm at all.

                    I like when a character is lucky in his badluck but in this story, I cant feel attached to Tang San. Because of it, even is relationship with Xiao Wu seem like a way to make him more powerful in the end. Sure, he will have to give Blue Silver Emperor spirit to her (since its the one with her spirit ring, its the logical choice) but he have twin spirit.

                    In Tang San case, he looks like he is the puppet of destiny to make him a existence close to a god, like a Asura (which is his nickname when he is gonna be a Titled Douluo, it was confirmed in a earlier chapter with the nickname they chosen for the abttle arenas).

                    Especially since he is using Grandmaster knowledge AND his knowledge from his past life, I feel like its cheating. I like heroes like Naruto or Chu Feng (Martial God Asura) who started weak but became strong thought hardwork, willpower and wits. I still love Douluo Dalu light novel but its not because of Tang San, rather I love the writting style, the world behind it, the action scenes are awesome, etc.

                    Anyway, my point is that is probably gonna get even more OP from now on. For exemple. Normal spirit master have a hard time getting ONE spirit bone, yet he have 4 now. His father have a full set though… Maybe its not THAT rare with a powerful background.

  19. Remember in one of the earlier chapters when they were fighting as the 7 shrek devils in the arena and there was a flash forward to the future where:

    Somebody asked Dai Mubai: “Who’s the most terrifying member of the team?”

    Dai Mubai answered: The most terrifying member of the team is Xiao Wu. Because when she is hurt, she’ll awaken the Thousand Hands Asura.

    I’m really looking forward to Thousand Hands Asura now. They once called him Asura as a nickname for his fearsome ability. I think he will actually become THE Asura, the god of war.
