Chapter 1444 – No Captives
When Tang Jie and the others started their assault on the World of Cultivation’s stronghold, Zhao Hai was ready to attack the Octopus Islands. But when he saw the Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but pause. He really wanted to acquire the needle.
Actually, the best time for Zhao Hai to make a move was the moment Tang Jie commanded the Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle to attack the World of Cultivation’s stronghold. At that time, because of its massive momentum, Tang Jie would have a hard time stopping the needle.
If Zhao Hai opened a spatial rift at that time, then the Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle would be sent to the Space. Once that happens, then the needle would be his.
But after thinking about it, Zhao Hai gave up on this idea. It was too risky to do so. Not only would he inform everyone about his spatial abilities, he would also risk the exposure of the Space. In the end, Zhao Hai decided to not use this method in order to obtain the needle.
Seeing the situation in the World of Cultivation’s stronghold, Zhao Hai decided to attack the Octopus Islands first. The World of Cultivation prepared for the battle, so they should be able to hold on for some time.
When he thought of this, Zhao Hai looked at Laura and the others and said, “I’m going to attack Octopus Island first. All Undead at Transcending Tribulation Stage and Severed Soul Stage will participate. We can’t let anyone escape, especially the one from the Detective Race.”
Laura and the others nodded. Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “This time, we need to be perfect. Once we clean up the Octopus Islands, we’ll turn around and help the World of Cultivation.” Then he vanished after he said that.
The people who remained in the Octopus Islands weren’t a lot. And with Zhao Hai’s silent arrival, the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm weren’t able to notice.
However, since the Hundred Treasures Realm was militarily-trained, the scouts quickly discovered Zhao Hai. When the word was passed on, everyone from the Hundred Treasures Realm grouped up.
Zhao Hai didn’t move as he calmly observed the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. These people weren’t very strong, only at the Transcending Tribulation Stage. It was clear that Tang Jie didn’t expect this place to be attacked, so he didn’t leave any Severed Soul Experts behind.
With this, Zhao Hai wasn’t afraid. The people from the Hundred Treasures Realm encircled Zhao Hai, each one of them had a bad expression as they looked at him.
Zhao Hai looked at these people before cupping his fist and introducing himself, “World of Cultivation’s Zhao Hai has seen the experts from the Hundred Treasures Realm.”
As soon as they heard Zhao Hai, the expression of the people from the Hundred Treasures Real mchanged. Naturally, they knew who Zhao Hai was. Not a lot of people from the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield were unaware of Zhao Hai’s name.
It wasn’t hard for a Nascent Soul Expert who could control two large artifacts to become famous in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. There were plenty of large artifacts in the battlefield like the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots. However, these large artifacts all needed several people to control them. There’s almost nobody else like Zhao Hai who can control two large artifacts on his own.
Besides this, the reason the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm knew about Zhao Hai was because he was the person who destroyed their plan. The loss of 1000 people was also directly related to Zhao Hai.
Because of this, upon hearing Zhao Hai introduce himself, the people from the Hundred Treasures Real were shaken. One of them looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Zhao Hai, you actually dared to come here. However, do you have the strength to deal with 300 people?”
Zhao Hai looked at the person as he smiled and said, “Of course not, I’m not that arrogant to think that I can take you all on my own.” After he said that, Zhao Hai pointed behind the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. Without even turning their heads, the expressions of the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm changed.
These people were experts, they didn’t need to turn their heads in order to see what’s behind them. Behind them were more than 2000 people. Most of them were at Transcending Tribulation Stage while some were at Severed Soul Stage. Most importantly, these were all Undead Experts.
In the end, the leader of the group couldn’t help but turn behind him. This was because he just saw someone he knew among the Undead.
Among the Undead that Zhao Hai took out, 1000 of them were from the Hundred Treasures Realm. The rest came from the Xu Race as well as a few people from other realms in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Zhao Hai took them all out this time just to make sure that everything went smoothly.
The people from the Hundred Treasures Realm were quick to notice that these Undead were truly at the Transcending Tribulation Stage and the Severed Soul Stage. This was also the reason why they were in a daze. They couldn’t understand how these Undead were able to preserve their strength upon becoming Undead. Was this real? A bluff?
Looking at the reaction of the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm, Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “This Zhao Hai is a Dark Mage, so making Undead is my strong point. The Undead that I make are able to preserve their original strength. Because of this, I didn’t dare take them out. If people knew about it, they wouldn’t be able to live another day. Since I took these Undead out right now, all of you should know what this means, right?”
These people from the Hundred Treasures Realm weren’t fools, so they understood what Zhao Hai meant to say. Zhao Hai wanted to silence all witnesses.
Then suddenly, a sound of a fight was heard. The people from the Hundred Treasures Realm used their spiritual force to find the commotion only to find out that the place where Xia Baichuan was in has been attacked.
Xia Baichuan has been captured by the Undead, tied up like livestock. But since the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm were in the way towards Zhao Hai, the Undead stood in place.
The leader of the group from the Hundred Treasures Realm looked at Zhao Hai and said, “You actually dared to make a move on the Detective Race? Aren’t you afraid of being targeted by them? You should know that a lot of realms owe favors from the Detective Race. There will be no place for you in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield.”
Zhao Hai gave out a radiant smile as he replied, “No place for me? Then let those from the Detective Race find me. Hahaha. Everyone, don’t look too highly upon the Detective Race. Do you really think that we fought with your first group in the Octopus Islands? To tell you the truth, what you saw in the recreation has been arranged by myself. But the Detective Race wasn’t able to look through that, didn’t they?”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Xia Baichuan’s expression changed. This meant that Zhao Hai was able to set up a fake scenario and the Detective Race’s ability wasn’t able to find out.
With this thought in mind, the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm couldn’t help but be anxious. If what they saw before was fake, then what else was false?
Seeing everyone’s reaction, Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Everyone, there’s no need to waste more time. I’ll have to be impolite.” Then Zhao Hai vanished from sight. The people from the Hundred Treasures Realm wanted to rush Zhao Hai, but they weren’t able to do it because he was already gone.
On the other hand, the Undead attacked, starting the battle. Naturally, the Undead with the superiority in strength and numbers wouldn’t give the Hundred Treasures Realm any chances. Many of them knew the methods of the Hundred Treasures Realm, so they capitalized on this to tie their enemies down. It didn’t take long before the battle was finished.
There were those who wanted to escape through the Highcloud Flying Shuttles. However, they were blocked by the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots and then dealt with right after.
Zhao Hai didn’t capture anyone. Everyone from the Hundred Treasures Realm and even Xia Baichuan’s weak self was turned into Undead.
Zhao Hai couldn’t be blamed for being cruel. Here in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, almost nobody surrendered in battle. These were Transcending Tribulation Experts, even Xia Baichuan was in the Nascent Soul Stage. It was useless to make them submit. If they were let out, they would just return to their realms. Therefore, it’s better to turn them into Undead rather than have a risky prisoner. At least the Undead had unwavering loyalty.
After dealing with the situation, Zhao Hai immediately erased all traces of battle, making it look like there’s no battle that occurred. Even the Octopus Island’s guardian formation was kept up. Then after that, Zhao Hai returned to the Space.
Zaoh Hai quickly entered the villa and asked about the state of the World of Cultivation’s stronghold.
Laura shook her head and said, “It’s not doing very well. If the Immortal Stage Experts don’t make a move, then the World of Cultivation would certainly lose. Although preparations were made, the Hundred Treasures Realm have formation experts among them. Moreover, they grouped into 500-people groups. As the matter stands, they have very strong fighting power. They also focus on breaking formations knowing that the World of Cultivation’s experts couldn’t stop them. Grandmaster Kong Miao also noticed this, so he’s grouping everyone in preparation for meeting the Hundred Treasures Realm head on.”
