Chapter 1426 – Futile Resistance
The fight went on, but the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm were beginning to despair. They began to understand that it became impossible for them to survive this battle.
With Zhao Hai using his large artifacts to attack the defensive line, the people of the Hundred Treasures Realm needed to allocate a lot of people to block it. Also, Kong Miao and the others weren’t weak, and their offense was getting sharper and sharper. There’s also the Undead that couldn’t be ignored. With the Undead surrounding them, the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm knew that even if they wanted to escape, it would be very difficult.
The Undead’s individual strength was terrible, only at Foundation Establishment level. However, with so many of them together, and the dynamic between offense and defense, it would take a lot of effort to go through them.
And while they were escaping from the Undead, Zhao Hai and Kong Miao’s group would certainly not let them off. If this happens, then they would be eradicated even more quickly.
By this point, the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm were no longer counting on the Xu Race. The absence of the Xu Race at this time meant that they were either blocked or too afraid to come. Judging by the current situation, the possibility of the former was much bigger.
The people from the Hundred Treasures Realm knew the Xu Race really well. They were a group that bullied the weak but feared the strong. Since the Hundred Treasures Realm was much more powerful than the Xu Race, the Xu Race would rather fight the World of Cultivation rather than offend the Hundred Treasures Realm. There were a lot of people who didn’t want to offend the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Even if the Xu Race wasn’t stopped, then they still wouldn’t be able to offer any help. The people from the Hundred Treasures Realm knew about this. It wasn’t that the Xu Race didn’t come to help, it’s that they couldn’t help.
Upon realizing this, the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm despaired even more. But this also brought out the fierceness of the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. This was because they were issued an order to not come back if they failed. And even if they did, they would be heavily punished. Additionally, they don’t have any hope to escape. So the group began to fight desperately.
Seeing this, Zhao Hai immediately took back his four instruments. To be honest, in the two times he used the four instruments, they were only able to release normal sound attacks with no faith power. In other words, the four instruments were akin to decorations. Such an attack wouldn’t be a threat to the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Zhao Hai didn’t use faith power in fear that the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm would find out about it. The Hundred Treasures Realm was a high-grade realm that was rich in cultivation resources. They were much much stronger compared to the World of Cultivation. He was afraid that if he used faith power, then these people would be able to identify it. Then they would try their best to break through and deliver this news back to their realm.
Zhao Hai continuously worried about his faith power being discovered by other people. Therefore, he didn’t use any faith power. But even if he didn’t use faith power, Zhao Hai was still a powerful combatant, so there’s no need for him to go all out.
After receiving his instruments, Zhao Hai released a large amount of flying swords. The coordinated assault of the swords caused another headache towards the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. Before, they only needed to deal with Zhao Hai’s large artifacts. And now, there’s these flying swords. This was like a God of War wielding his spear while also throwing knives towards the enemy.
Faced with this predicament, the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm began to see something. Kong Miao wasn’t the most threatening person in the World of Cultivation, instead it was Zhao Hai.
But even if they knew about this, they still couldn’t do anything to Zhao Hai. At this time, Zhao Hai was standing on the Hell King’s ship. The Hell King’s ship didn’t participate in the attack and just stayed back while the flying swords and the 12 metal beasts rampaged. Even if the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm wanted to kill Zhao Hai, they first need to repel the 12 metal beasts, and then go through the sea of flying swords, and after that breach through the defenses of the Hell King’s ship. And there’s also the screen of Undead between all of this. Nobody could do such an impossible task.
Futile resistance, the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm began to think about these words. At the same time, they couldn’t feel but feel sorrow in their heart.
Who were they? They were powerfhouses from the Hundred Treasures Realm, feared across the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. There weren’t a lot of groups that weren’t afraid of offending them. Average practitioners would beg and offer their artifacts upon the sight of them. When had they suffered this much?
But even if they are desperate, they still have to fight. If they surrendered, then the Hundred Treasures Realm wouldn’t let them off. Their family members and sects would be affected as well.
Cultivators were ruthless, but they placed great weight on sentiment. Every Cultivator had something that they couldn’t let go of. Even Devil Cultivators have a lot of things they couldn’t put down completely.
Naturally, Zhao Hai wouldn’t let these people have a chance to do anything. He continued attacking as Kong Miao and the others became more ferocious in their offence. Zhao Hai’s presence gave the World of Cultivation a boost of morale. Defeating three Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots would certainly make one’s allies proud.
This battle attracted a lot of attention. However, those who came only saw the Xu Race fighting against the Undead. They didn’t see the situation further inside. Therefore, nobody knew what Zhao Hai and the others were doing right now.
On the other hand, Zhao Hai knew what was happening outside. He knew that this situation couldn’t go on for long, or else the Hundred Treasures Realm would send reinforcements.
The reason why the Hundred Treasures Realm sent 1000 people after Zhao Hai and the others was because they thought that was enough manpower. If not, then they would certainly send more people.
The Hundred Treasures Realm is different compared to the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race. The World of Cultivation and the Xu Race were medium-grade Realms, so sending 1000 Transcending Tribulation Experts was already a great deal. As for the Hundred Treasures Realm, 1000 Transcending Tribulation Experts wasn’t much. This was the difference between high-grade and medium-grade realms.
Besides having confidence in dealing with the World of Cultivation, the Hundred Treasures Realm also sent this many people in order to minimize the possibility of being exposed. If they sent out too many people, then people might sniff something out. In the end, they sent about 1000 people.
But if the Hundred Treasures Realm knew that their own people were being besieged and about to die, then they would certainly come to aid them. And the World of Cultivation might not be able to do anything.
When he thought of this, Zhao Hai strengthened the metal beasts’ attacks as well as the flying swords. The Hell King’s ship and the Pagoda were also strengthened.
The people from the Hundred Treasures Realm were getting killed, but they were still struggling. The Hundred Treasures Realm already lost about 500 people. Those left couldn’t stop the assault of the World of Cultivation. The only thing they could do was to survive as long as possible.
What surprised Zhao Hai was that nobody from the Hundred Treasures Realm surrendered. Although they knew that they would die and resistance was futile, they still fought.
Time passed as more and more people from the Hundred Treasures Realm were getting killed. At this point, only 100 people were left from the original group. Each one of the survivors were heavily injured with no hope of lasting for long.
When the commander of the group saw the end. He loudly shouted as he slashed his own throat with the glaive. He committed suicide!
It was almost impossible for cultivators to kill themselves. They valued their lives as treasures and would even give up their family members in order to survive. However, these people actually killed themselves without hesitation. To Zhao Hai and the others, this was something they didn’t expect.
When they saw their commander kill themself, the others also followed along.
Seeing their opponents like this, Kong Miao and the others remained emotionless. To someone who valued their lives, seeing their enemies kill themselves was a very extraordinary matter.
However, Zhao Hai wasn’t polite as he took all of the bodies and sent them to the Space. Then he flew towards Kong Miao and whispered, “Grandmaster, I found out that these people are from the Hundred Treasures Realm.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Kong Miao’s expression couldn’t help but change. He knew that the Hundred Treasures Realm was very hard to deal with. But he also knew that Zhao Hai wouldn’t joke about this matter.
Kong Miao turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Are you sure?” Kong Miao really hoped that this wasn’t the case. Therefore, he asked.
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “I’m sure of it. I turned them into Undead using a special method, so they were able to keep their original memories. They aren’t able to lie in this state.”
Kong Miao’s expression truly changed. This was something he didn’t want to happen. Zhao Hai looked at Kong Miao and said, “Grandmaster, my Undead are currently blocking the Xu Race. I think we should head out now and deal with the Xu Race. Then let’s immediately inform the higher-ups about our opponent. This way, we could make preparations early.”
Hearing this, Kong Miao nodded and said, “Let’s do that. The higher-ups need to know who we’re up against. Our World of Cultivation is really unlucky. You go lead the others to deal with the Xu Race while I send a letter to the higher-ups.”
