Chapter 1447 – Stall!
People have innate hatred for those who had more than them. This was true for those who suffered from poverty or unfairness. Seeing people who had something they wanted, people would naturally be jealous. This mentality existed anywhere. Naturally, it’s also present in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield.
Although the law of the jungle preyed on vegetarians, this was the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, after all. Those who came here were experts and elites among their people. They weren’t mindless beasts. They may respect the law of the jungle, but this only applies if they have no strength. Once they get strong enough, they would make their own laws to benefit themselves. They would no longer depend on the instinct of beasts.
Because of this, people in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield had a deep hatred towards those above them. This was especially true for the Xu Race. Their bandit lifestyle was looked down on in the battlefield. Back when the Xu Race were looking for backers, those high-grade realms didn’t receive them and directly drove them away. They can’t even offer any gifts.
For the Xu Race, it doesn’t matter if their gift was accepted or not. What affected them the most was the fact that they were being looked down on, hurting their dignity.
Despite being bandits, the Xu Race were still able to live well. What are bandits? They were people who wanted profits while not suffering any losses. They adapted to any situation with realistic thoughts. They were people who understood what needed to be done.
The Xu Race knew that they couldn’t offend these huge powers, so even if they were insulted, they didn’t express their dissatisfaction. Conversely, when they saw these people from high-grade realms, they took the long way around. Because of how careful the Xu Race was, these large realms haven’t made a move on them.
The Xu Race endured, but this didn’t mean that they forgot. Just the opposite, they always wanted to retaliate against these people.
Unfortunately for them, they didn’t have any opportunities to do so. High-grade Realms were just too powerful. The Xu Race can only dream.
And this time, they had completely torn the face of the Hundred Treasures Realm. The Xu Race also no longer had any room to move in. If they don’t resist, then they would only perish. So why should they pull back any punches?
Because of this idea, the Xu Race went all out against the Hundred Treasures Realm. Zhao Hai’s arrival and success made the Xu Race see the possibility of defeating the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Zhao Hai was just too strong. When he appeared, he attracted the attention of the Hundred Treasures Realm. This allowed the Xu Race to calmly deal with their opponents and take hold of the upper hand. The Xu Race felt extremely grateful towards Zhao Hai.
The people from the Hundred Treasures Realm also discovered that this couldn’t go on. If things continued this way, then they wouldn’t be able to survive in the end.
If they wanted to re-organize themselves, then they would be separated by the metal beasts. It was simply impossible for them to fight the Xu Race and Zhao Hai in this state.
Although their discovery about their predicament came late, the leader of the Hundred Treasures Realm group made adjustments. His move was also very special. He had everyone slowly retreat into the tunnels.
Naturally, they discovered that an open area wasn’t good for fighting against Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai’s large artifacts were causing heavy damage to their numbers.
But if they drew back into the tunnels, then Zhao Hai wouldn’t be able to effectively use his large artifacts. Moreover, with a narrow and small space, the numerical advantage of the Xu Race would be minimized.
Zhao Hai also discovered the intention of the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. He didn’t help the Xu Race in blocking their plan. After all, as long as they enter the tunnels, they would be inside a huge maze. When the time comes, Zhao Hai can deal with them bit by bit.
The Xu Race also discovered the plan of their opponent. They wanted to prevent them but they didn’t have the strength to do so. The people from the Hundred Treasures Realm moved quickly. Their commander led the way while the others followed in an unexpectedly unified manner. The Xu Race simply weren’t given any time to prevent them.
Before long, the group from the Hundred Treasures Realm managed to enter the mines. As for the Xu Race, they didn’t actually give chase. They don’t fully understand the situation in the tunnels, going after their opponents was just courting death.
The Xu Race people began receiving their artifacts and then gathering around Zhao Hai. When Zhao Hai saw these people, he couldn’t help but be stunned. But he immediately understood what these people wanted. They wanted him to lead them.
Zhao Hai also received his artifacts. Then the leader of the Xu Race group stepped forward and bowed towards Zhao Hai and said, “We have seen Mister Zhao Hai. Thank you for helping us.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “You’re welcome. We’re allies, we should be helping each other. Everyone, I think we should head in and help the others. What do you think?”
The Xu Race representative smiled bitterly when he heard this and said, “Mister, it’s not that we don’t want to help, but as you can see we aren’t familiar with the tunnels. If we went, then we would just be ambushed by the Hundred Treasure Realm. Therefore, we came to Mister for advice.”
Zhao Hai nodded, “Alright, then I’ll have everyone follow behind me. However, please stay close and listen to my commands. Are you alright with that?”
Nobody opposed Zhao Hai’s decision. Everyone smiled and bowed as their leader said, “We’ll be depending on Mister Zhao Hai.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Then I ask everyone to follow me.” After he said that, he flew towards the mine. The mine had countless tunnels dug into it. Zhao Hai was also aware that most tunnels in the mines were covered with formations, one of which would inform Kong Miao and the others that the formations had been broken. However, when this happens, Kong Miao and the others wouldn’t know that it was Zhao Hai’s group that broke it but instead the Hundred Treasures Realm.
At the same time, there were also tunnels that had no formations in them. These tunnels were located in very remote areas of the mine where most people wouldn’t notice it. Only people from the World of Cultivation who were familiar with the terrain would know.
Zhao Hai led everyone into one of the tunnels. However, this didn’t mean that entering the tunnels was easy. There were countless traps in the mine, cleverly designed traps that would only leave a little area for passage.
Not to say these people, even Zhao Hai hadn’t spent a long time in the stronghold. However, although the stronghold wasn’t small, Zhao Hai still has the silver needles to scout ahead.
Moreover, when the battle started, Zhao Hai was constantly monitoring the stronghold’s situation. He also saw Kong Miao and the others arranging the formations in the tunnel.
After leading the Xu Race into the mines, Zhao Hai carefully moved forward. The Xu Race followed from behind in a line. The group moved like a large snake as they slowly advanced forward.
In about half an hour, Zhao Hai and the others were able to enter the mines completely. However, Zhao Hai was still very careful. There were traps everywhere in mine. He didn’t want to step on something. It would be bad if there were any misunderstandings that come up.
At the same time, Zhao Hai was monitoring the Hundred Treasures Realm. The people from the Hundred Treasures Realm who were forced into the mines by Zhao hai were also very careful. When they entered the mines, they immediately set up offensive formations thinking that Zhao Hai would lead the Xu Race in to chase. When that happens, they would be able to deal a heavy blow to Zhao Hai. However, they didn’t think Zhao Hai would lead the Xu Race away.
Although they saw that Zhao Hai and the others were gone, the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm didn’t dare come out. They were afraid of Zhao Hai. At the same time, they were afraid that Zhao Hai and the others were laying an ambush outside.
In their minds, they can ambush Zhao Hai inside the mines while Zhao Hai was staging an ambush outside. If they got out and fell into Zhao Hai’s trap, then they would be finished.
In the end, the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm gritted their teeth and went further deep into the mines. They would rather break formations than face Zhao Hai in battle.
Because he saw the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm entering deeper into the mines, Zhao Hai decided to lead the Xu Race in. His speed wasn’t quick, but this allowed him to dodge the formations along the way. However, his speed was still quicker compared to those from the Hundred Treasures Realm.
After one hour, Zhao Hai was finally able to reach Kong Miao’s location. Kong Miao and the others were currently occupying a large tunnel as a command post. At this point, the people from the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race had scattered around the mines. They set up magic formations behind the Hundred Treasures Realm. Because they had different formations, the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race alternated from time to time in order to cause more trouble for the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Besides arranging formations, these people were luring the Hundred Treasures Realm. This was to ensure that they wouldn’t go to places where they shouldn’t be.
This mine was the World of Cultivation’s stronghold, there were still many places that couldn’t be shown to others, let alone destroyed. Although this cannot be avoided because of the presence of the Hundred Treasures Realm, at least they needed to reduce the damage. Therefore, Kong Miao and the others led the Hundred Treasures Realm all around the mines to. This also delays time as well as exhaust the Hundred Treasures Realm.
