Chapter 1428 – Popular Undead
With Kong Miao’s permission, Zhao Hai began to negotiate with the Xu Race. This negotiation was too easy for Zhao Hai. He grasped the weakness of the Xu Race and made them less vigilant.
When he saw Zhao Hai’s method, Kong Miao felt that he made the right decision to leave this matter to him. Compared to Zhao Hai, his negotiation skills weren’t worth mentioning.
Seeing the Xu Race send a message, Kong Miao immediately released his own jade sword message. Then he looked at Zhao Hai and said, “If the Xu Race decides to cooperate, what do we do then? Do we let them go?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “How could that be possible? Since they agree to cooperate, then we can invite them over to the World of Cultivation as guests. I think the higher-ups would begin gathering manpower after receiving your message. We’ll abandon our bases and focus on defending one. At the same time, we’ll invite the Xu Race over to help.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Kong Miao didn’t know what to say. He just felt that this was too shameless.
Zhao Hai didn’t care, he just looked at Kong Miao and said, “Grandmaster, let’s take a step back first. I want to rest, so I’ll be receiving my artifacts. Naturally, the Undead will stay. Don’t worry, I won’t be gone for long.”
Hearing this, Kong Miao anxiously asked, “Is there a problem? Are you alright?”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “Don’t worry, I’ll be fine after resting for a while.”
Actually, Zhao Hai doesn’t need to rest. He just wanted to integrate the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots to Liquid Silver. He still doesn’t know whether the Xu Race would agree to his proposal. If the Xu Race didn’t, then the World of Cultivation would continue hunting them down.
Although the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots have already been prepared, they still don’t have any yin-yang ponds in them because they haven’t been integrated to liquid silver. Even if Zhao Hai could still use them, he could only control two with his current strength.
Before this, Zhao Hai discovered that the yin-yang ponds couldn’t just be installed on any artifact. If it was an artifact made by others, then it would be incompatible with the yin-yang pond. Yin-yang ponds can only be installed on large artifacts made by the Space or artifacts that were integrated to Liquid Silver.
Regardless, Zhao Hai wasn’t disappointed. He doesn’t want anyone else to know about the yin-yang ponds. It was something that only he would use. Although this would exclude the Undead from becoming stronger, Zhao Hai didn’t mind. After all, the Undead wouldn’t be fighting one-on-one battles soon. What the Undead depended on was their numbers.
Naturally, this wasn’t the case for all Undead. By this point, Zhao Hai had a lot of Transcending Tribulation Undead in the Space. These included the Xu Race he hunted down before as well as the experts from the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Zhao Hai already asked those from the Hundred Treasures Realm about their artifact making methods. However, they don’t know about the formations used inside. They were just combatants, the realm just makes weapons for them. It was impossible to know about the core secrets of weapons.
Naturally, these weapons refer to the weapons they used before, not the blood red glaives. To be honest, the blood red glaives were very good artifacts. However, it didn’t have the armor sunder formation. And this armor sunder formation was the most important part of the Hundred Treasures Realm’s artifacts.
Although he wasn’t able to get this secret from the Hundred Treasures Realm, this didn’t affect Zhao Hai. He could just melt those blood red glaives and make weapons that fit the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. Although these weapons don’t carry the unique properties of the artifacts from the Hundred Treasures Realm, they still had the powerful effect of weapon shattering.
The weapon shatter formation was now Zhao Hai’s most used artifact formation. Almost all of Zhao Hai’s artifacts had weapon shattering applied to them. Therefore, the artifacts were powerful in offensive and defensive situations.
The overall power of the Undead from the Hundred Treasures Realm might drop by using weapon shattering. However, at least their combat prowess was better when using the glaives.
It was because of these adjustments that Zhao Hai needed a time out. Naturally, Kong Miao was unaware of this. However, he still agreed and took the initiative of telling others about Zhao Hai.
Of course, nobody opposed this. Everyone already knew of Zhao Hai’s contribution and strength.
The Xu Race stared as the Hell King’s ship slowly backed out and the Undead closed the passage. At the same time, they felt very uneasy. They didn’t know what the World of Cultivation would do after this. Will the World of Cultivation attack them?
The Xu Race began gearing for defense against any attack. However, the Undead didn’t make any attacks. They were like statues suspended in the air.
As the Hell King’s ship withdrew, it suddenly vanished and was replaced by beast-shaped Undead. This way, the people from the World of Cultivation could sit on them and not in mid-air. Even if they want to sleep it wouldn’t be a problem, each beast-shaped Undead was enormous.
As for Zhao Hai, he summoned Alien and immediately went inside it. Alien shut down its mouth, blocking any spiritual force from Kong Miao and the others entering.
Seeing Zhao Hai, the others also wanted to enter the bellies of the Undead. The beast-shaped Undead agreed and opened their mouths, revealing rooms inside their bellies. This caused the people from the World of Cultivation to be glad. The rooms inside the Undead were actually more comfortable than the ones on the Hell King’s ship.
Although the Hell King’s ship wasn’t very huge, Only Kong Miao and the other powerful experts had their own rooms. Others stayed in group cabins. Despite having enough space of their own in these cabins, these experts still preferred a personal space. This was because cultivators don’t like being seen by others when they cultivate, afraid of being disturbed.
With the beast-shaped Undead, the cultivators were given their own mobile cave residence. Naturally, they would be very satisfied with this.
This was also something Zhao Hai deliberately arranged. These beast-shaped Undead were chosen by him and modified. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have rooms inside them.
Zhao Hai only took Mo Sheng into Alien this time. Li Zongdao has been arranged to another Undead to cultivate in. As soon as Zhao Hai and Mo Sheng entered Alien’s body, they entered the Space. Zhao Hai needed to see the process of integration. So upon entering the Space, he immediately started the fusion between the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots and Liquid Silver. Once the chariots get fused with Liquid Silver, their strength would increase by one level.
The increase of the chariots’ strength was due to Liquid Silver’s special characteristic of being indestructible. This property was first seen back when it was still the Skull Staff. Because the Space and the outside world operate on different laws, outside laws wouldn’t be able to do anything to the staff. This made the staff indestructible.
In the past, the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots were defeated because Zhao Hai managed to wreck them. Once they become indestructible, they would no doubt be much more powerful.
Another reason for the chariots’ increase in strength was the yin-yang pond. Before this, the strength of the chariots was largely based on the strength of its controllers. If they were controlled by Foundation Establishment Experts, then they simply couldn’t be able to express their full strength. On the other hand, ten Transcending Tribulation Experts could bring out all of the chariot’s strength. This was another weak point of the chariots.
As long as the chariots get integrated to Liquid Silver, they could be installed with yin-yang ponds. When the time comes, the yin-yang ponds could provide the chariots with endless amounts of energy. This would naturally increase the efficiency of the chariots.
Additionally, controlling the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots was very complex. Even Transcending Tribulation Experts would need to work together in order to control it. After all, the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots were machine-like artifacts that needed people to control it.
But after getting fused to Liquid Silver, the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots wouldn’t have this problem. Cai’er can transform the chariots into robot-like puppets. As long as Zhao Hai issues an order, the chariots would immediately move.
Most importantly, modifications have been done to the chariots. Although their charge attacks were quite strong, the strength behind it wasn’t very lethal. Once they had been transformed, their combat prowess would be better than before.
Cai’er already prepared everything. After seeing Zhao Hai return, she immediately went forward. Zhao Hai followed Cai’er to the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots. Then he turned to Cai’er and said, “Let’s begin.” Cai’er complied and waved her hand. Clumps of silver metals appeared and entered the three Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots.
Zhao Hai looked at the situation, then he turned to Cai’er and said, “How long would it take to finish?”
Cai’er counted for a moment and replied, “Probably about two hours.”
Zhao Hai nodded and then took Cai’er and Mo Sheng to the villa. Upon entering the villa, Zhao Hai had Meg arrange something for Mo Sheng to eat. Then he sat beside Laura and the others. At this time, Laura was busy processing the Undead from the Hundred Treasures Realm. She needed to list down the Hundred Treasures Realm’s techniques and see if there’s somewhere they could be used.
As for Lizzy and the others, they were currently controlling the Undead gathered around the Xu Race. They were also monitoring Kong Miao and the others. Although the World of Cultivation now had a good relationship with Zhao Hai, Zhao Hai and the others still needed to be wary of them since he just showed them his strength.
Fortunately, Zhao Hai made a very wise decision. Although it might seem like he gave everyone their own rooms, this also meant that they were isolated from each other. Nobody contacted anybody else yet. They all just sat in their rooms, meditating silently.
After nodding at what he saw, Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “It seems like these people liked the Undead. How about giving them their own Undead?”
Laura smiled and said, “Even if you gave them, they wouldn’t accept it. After all, these are your Undead. They would be afraid that you’ll use the Undead against them.”
Zhao Hai smirked, then he said, “Right, the World of Cultivation is full of intrigue. Nobody would trust others easily. Forget it, let’s keep the Undead.”
Laura smiled faintly and said, “Brother Hai, those people from the Hundred Treasures Realm have some unique techniques. You might want to learn them, it might help you fight more efficiently.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “I’ll do it after everything is finished. Do you think the Xu Race will cooperate with the World of Cultivation?”
Laura smiled and said, “I think they would agree. The Xu Race aren’t stupid. Losing the 1000 experts would be a huge blow to them. And with the overbearing manner of the Hundred Treasures Realm, they certainly wouldn’t let the Xu Race off. Instead of waiting for their end, they might as well go and fight. As long as they win, they can still rob people in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “I also think that they would agree. But this time, we truly offended the Hundred Treasures Realm. I’m afraid they have already received news right now. And they will send people to deal with the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race. I hope that the people standing behind the World of Cultivation will come forward. Otherwise, the World of Cultivation will be in deep trouble.”
Laura smiled and said, “Those people will definitely step out. They’re great enemies with the Hundred Treasures Realm and had fought against them for tens of thousands of years. Now that the Hundred Treasures Realm has made a move, those people would naturally fight back.”
