Chapter 1450 – Ambush
Before the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm were prepared to resist the incoming attacks, 12 huge metal beasts suddenly appeared in the middle of their group. These 12 metal beasts didn’t charge in from outside, they just appeared then and there.
The people from the Hundred Treasures Realm didn’t expect 12 metal beasts to appear among them. They were caught off-guard, now they were beginning to be slaughtered.
The 12 metal beasts were akin to 12 killing machines. They became unhindered among the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. Nobody can stop them.
The Xu Race members in the vicinity also attacked. These people were already experienced in fighting the Hundred Treasures Realm. Now that the group from the Hundred Treasures Realm had been turned chaotic by the 12 metal ebasts, the Xu Race took this opportunity to attack. A lot of people from the Hundred Treasures Realm were killed by this.
This was the most desperate fight that these people had been in. They didn’t expect the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race to have the courage to ambush them. This was a true surprise for them.
And with Zhao Hai’s surprise attack, the group from the Hundred Treasures Realm didn’t have any means to resist. In the end, they can only defend passively against the attacks.
Yuan Ding and Yuan Zhen couldn’t help but get stunned. They had a brief encounter with the Hundred Treasures Realm before and they knew how strong they were. They didn’t expect Zhao Hai and the Xu Race to completely overwhelm these people.
Confidence is a very strange thing. People from high-grade realm had a higher level of confidence compared to those in lower-graded realms. Even if the strength between the two were the same, those from high-grade realms tend to win more. In other words, confidence represented morale. If you have a higher morale than the enemy, then you would have a greater chance of winning.
On the other hand, smaller realms tend to lose confidence when faced with people from higher-grade realms. One couldn’t blame them, after all, the other party was more conditioned than them. Moreover, people from lower realms were wary of offending a high-grade realm. Because of this, their attacks became timid. People from lower realms who manage to escape from people from higher realms would be able to show off their survivability.
But this time, the situation was different. This was a war of extinction. If they lost, the Xu Race would become extinct. Because of this, the Xu Race let go of any worries they had. Their lack of confidence from before was supplemented by Zhao Hai’s previous feat of dealing with the first group from the Hundred Treasures Realm. This allowed the Xu Race to fight with their full capabilities.
Currently, the Xu Race were fighting with 120% of their strength. Naturally, they wouldn’t suffer any losses against the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. Additionally, the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm weren’t in the right state to fight. Their effective strength has been lowered to 60%. In this case, the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm would be the ones suffering a loss. They could only be pressed down by the Xu Race.
Although the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm were being pressed down, they continued to resist. Perhaps this was because of the pride they held deep in their hearts. Because of this, ending the fight in a short time became impossible.
The people from the Hundred Treasures Realm were waiting for reinforcements. They already sent a jade sword message to ask for help. As long as they persist until reinforcements arrive, they would be able to win.
But what they didn’t know was that their jade sword message had been taken by Zhao Hai, so none of their messages went through. It would be impossible for them to have reinforcements. At the same time, a large number of combatants from the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race were still on the way. Once they arrive, the group from the Hundred Treasures Realm would certainly be eliminated.
The group from the Hundred Treasures Realm were also able to notice that more and more enemies were arriving. On the other hand, their numbers were getting smaller and smaller. It was too late for them to attempt escaping.
The fight went on as more and more people arrived. At this time, the people from the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race numbered more than 3 thousand. Meanwhile, the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm only numbered 100. And every single one of these 100 were injured. They were now resisting with their final strength.
Despite this, the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race didn’t relax. This wasn’t a small matter, it involved their life and death. By this point, they had a deep grudge with the Hundred Treasures Realm. If they didn’t take this opportunity to deal with the Hundred Treasures Realm, then their futures would be very bleak.
Those who can come to the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield were elites in their respective lands. Most of them were at the Transcending Tribulation Stage. The hands of these people were covered in blood. Killing was too common for them, almost as common as breathing.
Moreover, these people are old foxes. The late reinforcements from the Giant Spirit Realm caused them to feel wronged. They were also aware that they could only rely on each other right now. After all, they might be going against the Hundred Treasures Realm in the future. So they might as well fight right now.
With the overwhelming numbers of the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race, the group from the Hundred Treasures Realm could no longer withstand them. They were suppressed and didn’t have the opportunity to fight back.
At this point, the group from the Hundred Treasures Realm no longer had their arrogant demeanor from before. They have looked down on the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race. They believed that 500 people was enough to rout 5000. But now they know that if they push someone so far, then a time would come where they could no longer win.
Besides releasing the 12 metal beasts, Zhao Hai didn’t do anything else. He just stood on the side and observed. By this time, he already retrieved the 12 metal beasts. Standing behind him was Mo Sheng. Li Zongdao was present as well. The two looked like Zhao Hai’s guards, one behind him and the other was at his side.
The battle ended quickly after that. The people from the Hundred Treasures Realm were completely wiped out. They had no way to run and even if they surrendered, they were still slaughtered by the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race.
After the last person from the Hundred Treasures Realm fell down, the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race cheered. This was the first time they managed to defeat the Hundred Treasures Realm. Naturally, they were extremely happy.
Zhao Hai looked at everyone’s celebration and gave out a light cough. Although his cough wasn’t very loud, everyone turned silent when they heard it. In an instant, the entire tunnel became peaceful.
Zhao Hai looked at those present and said, “It’s not time to celebrate yet. Let’s clean the scene first. You are free to take their artifacts away, but I have a request. Leave their bodies to me. I am a Dark Mage and I can make Undead out of their corpses. Is everyone okay with that?”
The Cultivators and the people from the Xu Race didn’t even think about it as everyone bowed at the same time and said, “We’ll do as Mister says!” They already recognized Zhao Hai’s position due to his strength.
These people took the artifacts from the corpses and put them in spatial bags. However, instead of keeping it, a representative from the Xu Race and the World of Cultivation handed it all over to Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai couldn’t help but stare, then he immediately understood. They slaughtered 500 people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. However, they numbered more than 4000. If they divided the spoils right now, then the distribution wouldn’t be fair. Because of this, everyone just took all the artifacts and then handed it over to someone to distribute after the battle.
Zhao Hai didn’t refuse. He turned his head to the Xu Race member and the monk and said, “You two, please take these and hand them over to Grandmaster Kong Miao.” The two naturally agreed as they took the spatial bags and left.
Zhao Hai also collected the corpses of the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. After he did that, he turned his head towards everyone and said, “It’s time to divide the work. Masters Yuan Ding and Yuan Zhen, please take the men from the World of Cultivation and lure the Hundred Treasures Realm. Friends from the Xu Race, since you have stealth robes, I’ll have to ask you to hide and wait for the ambush. Is everyone alright with this?” The people present complied and went along with what Zhao Hai said.
Although it has been a short time since Zhao Hai entered the Ten-thousand Realm battlefield, both the Xu Race and the Hundred Treasures Realm already suffered heavy losses in his hands. Originally, the Xu race were angry at Zhao Hai. But after fighting with him against the Hundred Treasures Realm, they no longer cared about the past. Instead, they wanted to foster a close relationship with Zhao Hai.
At the same time, although Yuan Ding and Yuan Zhen were the ones who recruited Zhao Hai to the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, they didn’t dare pull any rank at this time. They complied and took their men to leave. The Xu Race also hid themselves. As for Zhao Hai, he didn’t leave and instead cleaned up the battlefield. Then he found a tunnel and hid.
After hiding himself in a tunnel, Zhao Hai began to pay attention to the actions of the Hundred Treasures Realm, especially the group where Tang Jie was. This group had the strongest experts among the five groups. If they faced Tang Jie and the others, then the losses would certainly be large.
Yuan Ding and Yuan Zhen began to lure another group from the Hundred Treasures Realm. Seeing that the group wasn’t Tang Jie’s, Zhao Hai felt relieved.
What happened next was the same as before. Yuan Zhen and Yuan Ding attacked the group and then turned around and ran. At the same time, they arranged formations behind them in order to light a fire inside the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. Before long, the group was lured into the ambush tunnel.
The fight proceeded just like the previous one. Zhao Hai’s opening move was very lethal towards the group from the Hundred Treasures Realm.
But after this, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but frown. This didn’t mean that the result was bad. On the contrary, the battle was going much faster than the one before. The ambush was executed beautifully. Zhao Hai frowned because Tang Jie’s group suddenly paused. They seem to have discovered something!
Tang Jie stopped as his brows wrinkled. Then he took out a few jade sword messages and sent them out. They also commanded his group to stop and guard their position.
