Chapter 1417 – Scanners
Zhao Hai already had a reply in his mind when he heard Kong Miao. So he said, “Grandmaster, actually, you don’t need to learn the method. I can use magic formations and some technology from the Machine Field in order to make a scanner. Once we have a batch of them made, anyone would be able to detect the Xu Race.”
Kong Miao and the others stared. It must be known that detecting the Xu Race has been a headache for a lot of people in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Even people from High-grade realms would have a hard time looking for the Xu Race. But now, Zhao Hai made it seem like the problem was very easy to solve.
Kong Miao looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Zhao Hai although our World of Cultivation has been very carefree, we’re currently at war. This might involve the life and death of the World of Cultivation, we cannot make jokes about this. Are you sure sure about what you’re saying?”
Hearing this, Zhao Hai cupped his fist and said, “Grandmaster, this Zhao Hai is not joking. As long as you give me five days, I can manufacture a batch of those scanners. It won’t be less than a hundred units. However, I have to ask Grandmaster for support regarding materials. After all, those devices needed resources to make.”
Kong Miao looked at Zhao Hai, then he nodded and said, “Alright, as long as you can make this scanner, I’ll give you anything.”
Zhao Hai nodded, “Grandmaster can rest assured. I’ll send a list over. As long as everything has been sent, I can ensure that I can make them.”
Kong Miao waved his hand and said, “There’s a room next door, go there and make your list. List everything you need and we’ll give it to you right away. You need to make these devices as soon as possible.”
Zhao Hai didn’t say anything but he held his fist towards Kong Miao. Then he turned to Yuan Ding and said, “Master, please lead me to the room.” Yuan Ding nodded, then he led Zhao Hai towards the room. Zhao Hai took out a jade slip and began to write on it using his spiritual force.
Naturally, Zhao Hai would write everything he wanted. There’s no need to be polite towards Kong Miao. In fact, with Zhao Hai’s current wealth, not to say 100 scanners, he wouldn’t bat an eye if he were to make a million. However, he would be a fool to let go of this opportunity.”
The Space needed a lot of things. Once it acquires these items, the Space would then be able to produce them while also gaining experience. When the time comes, the Space would level up, which was something that Zhao Hai desired the most.
So when Zhao Hai made his list, he made sure to include items that weren’t present in the Space. But he didn’t dare list too many. He can take advantage of this opportunity, but he didn’t want people to think that he was too greedy.
Zhao Hai knew this very well, so among the things he listed, he included not too precious items. These things might be precious in the World of Cultivation, but they weren’t too valuable in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield.
Naturally, the things Zhao Hai listed could all be used. He can’t list items that he wouldn’t use in the end. Otherwise, people might accuse him for it. Everything needed to be done in moderation. If he did things well, then he would gain great merit and leave a good impression on everyone.
Before long, Zhao Hai made his list and checked it twice. After seeing that nothing was wrong, Zhao Hai walked out of the room and entered the room where Kong Miao and the others were. After entering the room, Zhao Hai handed the jade slip to Kong Miao as he said, “Grandmaster, these are the things I need. As long as I get them, you’ll have 100 scanners in five days.”
Kong Miao received the jade slip and scanned it with his spiritual force. Zhao Hai didn’t want a lot of things, and some weren’t even that precious. After reading everything, Kong Miao nodded. He now believed that Zhao Hai could make these scanners, he didn’t just want to cheat items.
Kong Miao passed the jade slip over to Yuan Ding and said, “Master Yuan Ding, please help Zhao Hai prepare these items. I’d like them prepared as soon as possible. Don’t delay.”
Yuan Ding nodded, then he took the jade slip and left. Kong Miao turned his head to Zhao Hai and said, “Do you need anything else? We’ll make sure to cooperate with you.”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “I don’t need anything else.”
Kong Miao nodded and said, “Alright, as long as you complete this task, then you’ll have greatly contributed to the World of Cultivation. Once this crisis is over, you can leave the newcomer’s area immediately.”
Leaving the newcomer’s area was in fact a reward. A lot of people in the newcomer’s area wanted to leave. However, the World of Cultivation’s rules stipulates that they needed to stay here for three years.
Three years wasn’t a long time for Cultivators. But for someone in the newcomer’s region, it was a bit too long. This was because the newcomer’s region had the least amount of resources in the entire Ten-thousand Realm battlefield. In order to get more valuable materials, the people in the newcomer’s region were desperate to leave. However, they didn’t want to violate the rules otherwise they would risk getting kicked out of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield.
Zhao Hai also wanted to leave the newcomer’s region earlier. Although he wasn’t afraid of being kicked out of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield since he could just teleport back, he still needed to care about his reputation in the World of Cultivation. If he was kicked out and then was spotted back in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, the World of Cultivation’s higher-ups wouldn’t let him off.
Because of this, Zhao Hai didn’t make any reckless actions. Instead, would do his best to help the World of Cultivation to go against the Xu Race. He was aware that the World of Cultivation wouldn’t let a merit go unrewarded. Otherwise nobody would work for them in the future.
Zhao Hai believed that as long as he does well this time, then he would be richly rewarded. Even if he requested to leave the newcomer’s region, nobody would say anything. It was just that he didn’t expect Kong Miao to propose it first. Although he heard Kong Miao talk about this matter with the others, Zhao Hai thought that Kong Miao would tell him much later.
Zhao Hai immediately cupped his fist and said, “I thank Grandmaster. Grandmaster, I have a request. Brother Li Zongdao entered the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield with me and he also provided a lot of help for me. I also have Brother Mo Sheng who isn’t very smart. Besides me and Martial Uncle Feng, he wouldn’t listen to anyone. I ask the Grandmaster to allow them to go with me when I leave the newcomer’s area.”
Kong Miao waved his hand and said, “A minor matter, don’t worry about it. As long as you complete the task, you can rest assured.” After he said that, Yuan Ding walked from outside, in his hand was a spatial back. He handed the spatial bag to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, have a look. See if there’s anything lacking.”
Zhao Hai nodded, then he used his spiritual force to search the spatial bag. Seeing that everything was prepared, he nodded towards Yuan Ding and said, “Everything is here. Thank you, Master Yuan Ding.” Then he turned to salute Kong Miao and the others and said, “Seniors, I’ll head back first to craft the scanners. I’ll have to be impolite.”
Kong Miao waved his hand and said, “Remember, if you need anything else, don’t hesitate to tell me.” Zhao Hai nodded, then he gave another salute before turning around and leaving.
As Zhao Hai’s figure disappeared, Xu Ning sighed and said, “Good kid. The Xu Race’s stealth has always been a headache to everyone in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. I didn’t expect that he would be able to solve it. It’s astonishing.”
Everyone nodded. At this point, their impression of Zhao Hai was getting better and better. Initially, they only thought that he was an ordinary Nascent Soul Expert. However, they discovered that his strength was beyond their expectations. And now, Zhao Hai was even able to solve the Xu Race’s stealth. It truly was astonishing.
Zhao Hai actually didn’t need to do a lot. After he returned to his cave residence, he discovered that Li Zongdao was already up. In fact, he was already awake when Yuan Ding arrived. Since then, he has been waiting for Zhao Hai to return.
Seeing Zhao Hai come back, Li Zongdao immediately asked, “Little Hai, did something bad happen?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “It’s fine. Grandmaster Kong Miao wants my help to make something. I’ll be heading to the crafting room. Please take care of Mo Sheng when he wakes up.” Then he took out some food and wine and gave it to Li Zongdao. After that, he added, “I’ll be closing up for about five days. Don’t disturb me. If Mo Sheng wants to eat, then let him eat some of these food.”
Li Zongdao nodded. Then Zhao Hai proceeded towards the crafting room. When he entered the room, he started the formation to isolate him from the outside world.
As soon as he entered the crafting room, Zhao Hai immediately entered the Space. Actually, the scanner wasn’t anything special. It was just something that had the silver needle installed in it. The Space could discover the Xu Race and then use the silver needle to transmit the information.
But since he couldn’t allow others to discover the existence of the silver needles, Zhao Hai needed to install them inside a device. Therefore, there’s nothing remarkable about the device. It was just a small computer that could show the surrounding terrain. Then there was a red dot that would show the location of the Xu Race.
When Zhao Hai proposed this, he already had Cai’er make the blueprints of the device. After going through the scanner, a full plan was drafted. Therefore, Zhao Hai was confident about the device.
However, since the silver needles couldn’t stay inside the device forever, Zhao Hai would set a service life to each device. For example, he could set it up so that the device would become unusable one year later. With this, he would have a reason to take the silver needles out.
As soon as Zhao Hai tossed the resources into the Space, ore veins were immediately spawned. Then the Processing Machine began to make the scanners. Actually, instead of five days, the machine was able to create the devices in just five hours. Zhao Hai just told Kong Miao that it would take five days in order to get more time for himself. He didn’t want to head out that soon.
