BTFTLIAW – Chapter 1440


Chapter 1440 – Cultivation Method

Before Zhao Hai could answer, Kong Miao turned to Yan Dong and explained, “Senior, Little Hai is a Dark Mage. He has undead could provide him with surveillance and they couldn’t be easily discovered. This is the reason why he could obtain information very quickly.”

Upon hearing Kong Miao, Yan Dong turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Since Grandmaster Kong Miao calls you Little Hai, then I’ll call you Little Hai as well. You can address me as Uncle Yan. So what did you discover?”

Zhao Hai bowed to Yan Dong and said, “Thank you, Uncle Yan. It would take a while before the Hundred Treasures Realm could come to us. The deceptive measures we installed on the Octopus Islands were quite effective. The Hundred Treasures Realm have asked the Detective Race for help. It would take a few hours before they could make a move, so Uncle Yan still has time. However, it won’t be long. The Hundred Treasures Realm would be here in a day or so.”

Yan Dong nodded and said, “Alright, then I’ll go immediately. Rest assured, reinforcement will be sent. Those who came with me will stay here. I’ll head back to dispatch more troops over here.”

Kong Miao and the others stood up and said, “Thank you Senior Yan.” Yan Dong waved his hand and walked outwards.

The group escorted Yan Dong to the transmission formation. After a flash of white light, Yan Dong disappeared from the transmission formation. Once Yan Dong vanished, Kong Miao turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, come with me.” Zhao Hai nodded as he led Mo Sheng to follow Kong Miao.

The two entered Kong Miao’s cave residence before long. After inviting Zhao Hai to take a seat, Kong Miao looked at him and said, “Little Hai, now that the Detective Race is involved, the Hundred Treasures Realm would certainly be aware of the situation. Do you think we should make some arrangements?”

Zhao Hai nodded and said, “We should. It’s best if we can do it right now. The Detective Race should be taking a rest after arriving, then he would investigate the situation. After knowing the truth, they would head out from Octopus Islands. We should have a few days to prepare.”

Kong Miao nodded, “Alright, then we’ll make preparations. However, didn’t you say that we only have one day or so? If the Giant Spirit Realm thinks that we deceived them, then they might get offended.”

Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Grandmaster, don’t worry. We provided a great contribution to the Giant Spirit Realm, so they wouldn’t think bad of us. And we can also find other reasons as to why the Hundred Treasures Realm was delayed on the Octopus Islands. We need all the time we need for the Giant Spirit Realm to reinforce us.”

Kong Miao understood what Zhao Hai wanted to do. Zhao Hai wanted to report an earlier time in order to reduce the risk of the Giant Spirit Realm coming late. Otherwise, the losses to the World of Cultivation would be very heavy. Zhao Hai could make reasons for a couple of days of delay so they wouldn’t suffer heavy losses.

Kong Miao approves of Zhao Hai’s methods. The rule of survival for lower-ranked realms was to accumulate as little loss as possible. If their losses were too big, then even if they were protected by a high-grade realm, their future development wouldn’t be great.

Kong Miao nodded and said, “Alright, then I’ll immediately relay to the higher ups that we need to prepare. Although we have formations erected in the stronghold, we can still add a few more just in case the worst happens.”

Zhao Hai nodded. Although they have a transmission formation that can be used to return to the World of Cultivation at any time, as long as they go back, then the transmission formation in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield would be destroyed. When the time comes, the World of Cultivation wouldn’t be able to return for a long time. They might not even be able to return.

The importance of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield shouldn’t be underestimated. If they lost the means to come here, then the World of Cultivation would lose a great source of valuable resources. This would be very harmful for the future development of the World of Cultivation. Therefore, they absolutely cannot return to the World of Cultivation.

The Xu Race’s situation was the same. If it weren’t for the rich resources of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, then they would have already returned to their realm and destroyed the transmission formation. Even if the Hundred Treasures Realm wanted to chase them down, they would be having a hard time doing so. 

However, the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield was just too appealing. Whether it be the World of Cultivation or the Xu Race, nobody wanted to give up on their place on the battlefield.

The World of Cultivation’s stronghold was built very well. It can be said that it was easy to defend but difficult to attack. But if the guardian formation gets broken and enemies were to kill their way in, then things would get a little troublesome. Although there were still traps laid on the base, one shouldn’t forget how powerful the enemies were. With their strength, they would no doubt detect the traps. Without the traps, the World of Cultivation would certainly face a very difficult battle.

Therefore, it wouldn’t be bad for the World of Cultivation to prepare in advance. This time, they wouldn’t be placing trap formations but combat formations instead. Combat formations used flags and disks to set up. As long as the formation wasn’t activated, it wouldn’t emit any energy fluctuations at all. Naturally, they wouldn’t be discovered in advance.

When the fight begins, the enemy would be led into the combat formations before activating it. Then once the formation was activated, it could be controlled however the controller wishes. This was a method that most cultivators use.

And with the World of Cultivation’s Transcending Tribulation Experts, they would set up several of these combat formations in order to help them fight. Even if they weren’t good at formations, they can still figure out how to use it.

It can be said that combat formations became a part of the World of Cutlivation’s strength. Almost everyone used it. What Kong Miao meant with preparations were exactly these combat formations.

Besides using it for the battle, Kong Miao also has another purpose in setting up these combat formations. He wanted the people from the Giant Spirit Realm to see the World of Cultivation being busy as though the Hundred Treasures Realm was about to arrive. If the Hundred Treasures Realm was delayed, then it had nothing to do with the World of Cultivation.

Even if Zhao Hai wasn’t doing anything, he still followed Kong Miao around. Seeing the Transcending Tribulation Experts arrange combat formations, Zhao Hai looked at Kong Miao and said, “Grandmaster, won’t the Immortal Stage Experts assume command when the fight begins? Why do I see everyone so anxious?”

Kong Miao sighed, then he smiled bitterly and said, “It couldn’t be helped. Although we have formidable Immortal Stage Experts, they couldn’t move as they want in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. And as soon as our Immortal Experts move, the Hundred Treasures Realm’s Immortal Experts would move as well. Don’t think that even though there’s a rule forbidding Immortal Realm Experts from attacking in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield the high-grade realms couldn’t find a workaround for it. For high-grade realms, they couldn’t easily find an excuse to send their Immortal Experts out of their territory. To put it bluntly, those rules are for us, not for them.”

Zhao Hai didn’t make a noise. He knew that in any legal system, the rules were always decided by a small number of people. And these small number of people would be above the law. Using laws against them was simply useless.

Kong Miao didn’t mind Zhao Hai’s silence, he sighed and said, “We are weak, so we can only be bullied. But I believe that there would come a day where the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield wouldn’t underestimate the World of Cultivation.”

Zhao Hai was taken aback by what Kong Miao said. He really didn’t expect Kong Miao to have such ideals. When Kong Miao noticed that Zhao Hai was silent, he couldn’t help but turn his head towards him and said, “What? Do you think that I have a foolish dream?”

Zhao Hai shook his head, then he smiled faintly and said, “It’s not. But I didn’t expect Grandmaster to have such a huge ambition. Since Grandmaster has a big dream, then I might be able to lend you a hand.”

Kong Miao was stunned at what Zhao Hai said, he looked at Zhao Hai and asked, “Lend me a hand?” Zhao Hai wasn’t the only person he told of this before. He told his friends in the past but all he got was ridicule. In the minds of these people, Kong Miao’s dream was too big.

This was the first time he heard from someone that they would help him. This caused Kong Miao to stare. Zhao Hai smiled faintly as he looked at Kong Miao and said, “Grandmaster, have you forgotten who I am? I’m a Dark Mage. Now that I have Undead from the Hundred Treasures Realm, I can have them write down their cultivation methods. As long as we practice those cultivation methods, then won’t our World of Cultivation prosper?

Upon hearing Zhao Hai, an expression of glee appeared on Kong Miao’s face. He looked at Zhao Hai with shining eyes as he said, “Really? You can record the cultivation methods of the Hundred Treasures Realm?”

Zhao Hai smiled faintly as he threw a jade slip towards Kong Miao. Ten he said, “This is a recorded cultivation method of the Hundred Treasures Realm. Have a look.”

Zhao Hai has been in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield for some time, so he knew clearly that there were divisions between the strengths of the realms. Besides overall combat power, this division was also brought about by the difference in cultivation methods.

Take Kong Miao for example, if he wasn’t able to study his special Buddhist Cultivation Method, then it would be impossible for him to reach his current stage in a short time. Cultivation methods are extremely important to cultivators.

After careful consideration, Zhao Hai decided to give Kong Miao a cultivation method of the Hundred Spirit Realm. He believes that even if he doesn’t give it over, Kong Miao would still think about it sooner or later. When the time comes, Kong Miao would think that he was a selfish person and begin to watch out for him. If Zhao Hai was suppressed, then his life wouldn’t become any better.

Even if he gave the cultivation method to Kong Miao, this didn’t mean that he couldn’t give this cultivation method to other people. He can give it to Huang Daoran, Feng Baiming, Louis, and anyone he wants.

The Hundred Treasures Realm’s cultivation methods were much stronger compared to the World of Cultivation. As long as the Profound Clear Sect practices them, then one day they might catch up to the strength of the Buddhists.

However, these techniques wouldn’t be as good for the Machine Field. After all, the concentration of spiritual qi in the Machine Field wasn’t as rich as the Cultivation Realm.

Because of this, Zhao Hai plans on propping up the strength of the Profound Clear Sect. So when the Profound Clear Sect becomes as strong as the Buddhist Path, then he could help the Machine Field through them, allowing the Machine Field to slowly increase its strength.

Actually, in addition to the cultivation methods of the Hundred Treasures Realm, Zhao Hai also wanted to learn the cultivation methods of the other realms. He wanted to collect all those methods so that the strength of the World of Cultivation would be truly improved.

Zhao Hai also wants to increase his strength as soon as possible. As long as he becomes stronger, then he could help the World of Cultivation better. He might even come into contact with something he hasn’t been exposed to before.

Kong Miao received the jade slip and read its contents. What’s inside wasn’t an ordinary cultivation method. It allowed a person to progress towards the Severed Soul Stage from Foundation Establishment. It can be said that it wasn’t inferior to the cultivation method he has right now. With this cultivation method, they could train a large number of experts in a short time.

Kong Miao had an excited expression as he looked at Zhao Hai. He didn’t know what to say for a short time. Zhao Hai looked at Kong Miao and then he smiled faintly and said, “Grandmaster, this is something good for the World of Cultivation. However, I wouldn’t only be giving this to you. I’ll also hand it over to Grandmaster Jianyi.”

Kong Miao stared, then his paused as he said, “Little Hai, you will?”

Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Grandmaster, don’t worry, nothing will happen. There needs to be competition in the World of Cultivation. As long as this competitive environment is maintained at a good level, it would only be beneficial to the realm. And with you and me at the helm in the future, those guys wouldn’t dare make up any storms.”

Kong Miao was shocked, then he understood what Zhao Hai meant. Zhao Hai already treated the two of them on the same level, but Kong Miao didn’t mind it. If it wasn’t fine with it, then he wouldn’t have brought Zhao Hai around the place and discussed matters with him.

After letting out a long breath, Kong Miao nodded and said, “Right, the World of Cultivation needs competition. As long as we’re present, nothing should go wrong. Good, now I’m relieved.”

Zhao Hai spoke those words as a probe. He wanted to see how Kong Miao would react. If Kong Miao was lying, then Zhao Hai would have to think of ways to deal with him in the future. This was because Kong Miao might want to get rid of the Profound Clear Sect.

But since Kong Miao showed a genuine response, this meant that he really wanted the World of Cultivation to rise up. This was what Zhao Hai wanted to see.
