Chapter 1422 – Anger
However, it seems like Zhao Hai underestimated the patience of these people. When Zhao Hai and the others stopped, these people didn’t make any moves. They seemed like lifeless creatures as they just stood in place.
But Zhao Hai knew that these people were alive. It was just that they were patient because they had formidable mental strength. Not long after Zhao Hai and the others departed, the Xu Race reported to these unmoving individuals.
Seeing this, Zhao Hai understood that these black clothed people were the main force. As for the Xu Race, they were now acting as scouts. But this was also good. This meant that the target has shifted from the Xu Race to these people. Looking at their appearances, it was clear that they wanted to hide their identities. This made it convenient for Zhao Hai and the others.
After convening with everyone, Kong Miao appeared on the bow. He looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, do you still have some Undead left there? How is the current situation?”
Kong Miao discovered that he was beginning to take Zhao Hai seriously more and more. This was because Zhao Hai brought continuous surprises to him. Like this time, for example. If Zhao Hai wasn’t able to see the situation ahead, then the World of Cultivation would be wading through unfamiliar waters.
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “I still have several remaining. However, they can only monitor the surrounding area. As of now, there’s no changes to the enemy. They haven’t made any moves. However, the Xu Race kept reporting back to them. I’m afraid our speculations are true.”
Kong Miao knit his brows and then nodded and said, “Keep monitoring the situation, if anything changes, tell me.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “I reckon nothing will change. Those people are really arrogant. They wouldn’t feel threatened by us. So why would they change their plan?”
Kong Miao replied, “If they’re arrogant, then that means they are confident with their strength. Especially here in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. I’m afraid we’ll be facing a hard battle ahead.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “I have a plan. If Grandmaster agrees, we can try it out.”
Kong Miao looked at Zhao Hai and said, “What’s your plan?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Among the Undead I have, there are beast-shaped Undead. Back when I was fighting Master, I equipped them with magic cannons. I haven’t removed them yet. However, if we go with this plan, then I’ll have to ask Grandmaster for high-grade crystals. The ones I use are too low-grade, so they cannons wouldn’t be able to exert much power. I also have a large number of yin lightning mines. I can release my humanoid Undead to use the mines to deal with the Xu Race. Although they wouldn’t be able to do much, at least they could introduce more chaos in the battlefield. With this the pressure on us would be much smaller.
Hearing Zhao Hai, Kong Miao nodded and said, “Alright, let’s try that out. I’ll give you the crystal stones. But how many Undead do you have?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “A lot.”
Kong Miao nodded and said, “Good. Then I’ll send people to collect crystal stones. Wait here.” After he said that, he turned around and left. Kong Miao’s evaluation of Zhao Hai increased once more. Not only because Zhao Hai was powerful, but also because he was concerned about the well-being of other people.
Before long, Kong Miao came back holding a spatial bag. He handed the spatial bag over to Zhao Hai and said, “We can only scrape up this much. You decide how to use them.” Zhao Hai nodded then received the spatial bag.
Kong Miao gave him a lot of crystals. Moreover, all of them were high-grade crystals. Actually, Zhao Hai had no need for these at all. This was because the Space was already producing high-grade crystals. But holding the mentality of not giving without taking, Zhao Hai asked for these crystals.
Zhao Hai wanted to release the Undead in consideration for the World of Cultivation. This battle was crucial to the realm’s future. They cannot lose here. Therefore, Zhao Hai decided to release the Undead to help him out.
At the same time, he wanted to show his strength to Kong Miao and the others. Kong Miao and the others only heard about his Undead. Today Zhao Hai wanted them to see the power of his Undead.
Four hours was long for a cultivator. In a blink of an eye, Zhao Hai and the others were able to spot the people blocking their way. Those in the ship’s cabin also began to walk out.
Zhao Hai stopped the Hell King’s ship when they were a kilometer away. The two sides looked like status as they released killing auras towards each other. It was clear that they weren’t intending to become friends.
After Zhao Hai stopped the ship, Kong Miao cupped his fist towards the other party and said, “Everyone, this one Kong Miao from the World of Cultivation. May I know why you’re blocking our way?”
The masked group just stared at Kong Miao. All of them looked like dead people.
Kong Miao felt a bit uncomfortable because of this. But his face was calm as he said, “Everyone, do you want to stand up to the Xu Race?”
Despite this, the other side kept quiet. At this time, Zhao Hai walked over to Kong Miao and whispered, “Grandmaster, the Xu Race is starting to surround us. If we allow them to do this, we will be in trouble.”
Hearing this, Kong Miao’s expression changed. Then he coldly snorted and said, “We greeted them properly. But as it turns out, they just want to eat us. I’m afraid they don’t have such a huge appetite.” Then with a wave of his hand, everyone from the World of Cultivation took out their artifacts.
The other party didn’t make any noise. However, all of them took out their artifacts. When he saw their artifacts, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but be stunned. This was because all of them had the same weapon. All artifacts were three meters long and colored red. They were glaives!
Kong Miao was also stunned when he saw this. Then his expression changed. He wasn’t ignorant, these glaives weren’t ordinary and all of them had murderous auras. If placed in the World of Cultivation, such artifacts would be considered high-grade. It would be very difficult to acquire them. But now, all one thousand people had one of these artifacts. It’s clear that their background wasn’t ordinary.
The others were stunned as well. Then their expressions became ugly. They were all experienced individuals, naturally they understood what these weapons meant.
At this time, the leader of the masked group waved his hand. About thirty people stepped out and then suddenly, three colossal constructs appeared in front!
Saying that these three were colossal wasn’t excessive. They weren’t any smaller than the Hell King’s ship. However, they were quite different. One could see at a glance that the Hell King’s ship was a boat. As for the three, they looked like chariots!
And these weren’t ordinary chariots either. These were three bronze chariots that were made out of high-grade wood. Each chariot was pulled by eight bronze horses. Their wheels were also equipped with sharp blades to mow down the enemy.
What made Zhao Hai feel strange was that the bronze horses were capable of movement. These bronze horses kicked their legs and even neighed, just like real horses.
The drivers of the chariots looked like warriors from ancient times. As the three chariots lined up, they looked like ancient war gods that had just walked out of their tombs.
At this time, the 30 masked individuals got on their respective chariots. Naturally, they would be the ones controlling the chariots. Seeing this, Zhao Hai immediately understood what the other party intended to do. They want to deal with the Hell King’s ship and the Pagoda using these three chariots.
When he saw this, Kong Miao’s expression turned uglier. It must be known that these bronze chariots were quite famous in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. But this didn’t mean that only one realm used these chariots. In fact, these chariots were pleasantly named Eight Cyan Imperial Charots. They were common large combat artifacts.
Although these chariots weren’t rare, only a few people could effectively use them for fighting. This was because this artifact was very hard to operate. It wasn’t an ordinary magic artifact but instead it operated like a machine. To Cultivators, the term machine was oftentimes replaced by ‘puppet’. However, puppet artifacts were controlled using spells.
Puppet artifacts and machine-type artifacts were made roughly the same way. Components and formations in order to assemble these artifacts. And then they helped people fight. As for the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots, they were machine-type artifacts.
Since these chariots were machine-type artifacts, operating them needed many people. In order to guarantee optimum fighting strength, each chariot needed at least ten people to control them.
Because these Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots were used heavily in the early years of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, only a few of them remained to this day. Moreover, they were rarely used. It was said that only the most powerful realms possess them.
For the opposite party to take out three of these chariots fully explained their strengths. And it also informed Zhao Hai and the others that their background was indeed formidable.
When he thought of this, Kong Miao turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, what do you think? These people want to deal with your artifact with the chariots. Can you block them?”
Zhao Hai’s face was pale. However, this wasn’t out of fear but anger. He didn’t think the other party would be this ruthless against the World of Cultivation. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have prepared this much.
Kong Miao looked at Zhao Hai and thought that Zhao Hai wasn’t assured. So he immediately said, “If you’re not sure, then forget it. Let’s just think of a solution.”
Hearing this, Zhao Hai coldly snorted and said, “If they want to play, then I’ll accompany them. Grandmaster, don’t worry. Those three chariots, leave them to me.” After he said that, Zhao Hai took out four instruments as well as 12 metal beasts.
When the instruments and beasts appeared, they weren’t very big. But it didn’t take long before they enlarged and became as big as the Hell King’s ship.
Zhao Hai waved his hand once more, causing the sky to be blotted by Undead. These Undead formed cube formations, each formation having a hundred thousand Undead inside. In a flash, Zhao Hai revealed ten million Undead.
Kong Miao and the others were stunned. They didn’t expect Zhao Hai to have this move. The twelve metal beasts were no smaller than the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots. There’s also the four instruments floating around the Hell King’s ship. The scene looked somewhat terrifying.
What’s even more surprising was the ten million Undead. These Undead were wearing armor as they stood in place. Their tight formation and cold aura caused the surrounding temperature to drop by a few degrees.
Zhao Hai was truly angered this time. The World of Cultivation was his root. He can’t let it perish. The other party was intent on wiping them out. Naturally, he had to return the gesture. So he released a lot of Undead as well as the metal beasts and the four instruments.
Seeing this, Kong Mia’s eyes lit up. He looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, you take care about the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots. Leave the others to us.” After he said that, Kong Miao flew out of the Hell King’s ship. In his mind, if Zhao Hai intends to command this many artifacts, then he certainly wouldn’t be able to attack with them.
And this was indeed the case with Zhao Hai. The other released three artifacts, which would be enough to occupy him for a while. Therefore, he wouldn’t be able to participate in the attack.
The others saw this and understood what Kong Miao wanted to express. So all of them flew out of the Hell King’s ship and attacked the other party. At the same time, Zhao Hai wasn’t polite as his four instruments began playing music. The sound waves assaulted the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots. The 12 Metal Beasts also moved and threw themselves towards the chariots. The Hell King’s ship charged as well carrying Zhao Hai along with it.
As for the Undead, there was no need for Zhao Hai to control them. Lizzy and the others took control over the Undead to help Kong Miao and the others to attack the masked people.
Just like Kong Miao, the masked individuals were also shocked. They already researched Zhao Hai before this so they had a fair evaluation of his strength. However, they didn’t expect Zhao Hai to conceal his strength. This unexpected change caused them to be startled.
However, now that Kong Miao and the others had attacked, they had no choice but to receive the assault. It was at this time that Kong Miao and the others discovered the difference between the two sides. Although the masked individuals only had one weapon, their offensive strength actually suppressed the World of Cultivation!
