Chapter 1460 – Counterfeit
Zhao Hai had a happy expression as he looked at the cyan colored Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle in front of him. This spirit snake needle looked like the one that Tang Jie had but thinner and more smooth. It looked more like a needle.
Naturally, this Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle was the one that Liquid Silver has turned into. This spirit snake needle was very different to the original spirit snake needle. It had more magic formations in it as well as more materials. It also had Liquid Silver’s characteristics. It can be said that this needle was much better compared to the original Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle.
Also, this Formation Breaking Spirit Rate Needle can use Faith Power. Tang Jie’s spirit snake needle just couldn’t compare to this one.
Zhao Hai held the Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle ang gently caressed it. He thought that it should no longer be named Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle. Instead, it should just be called Spirit Snake Needle. This needle can either be big or small, long or short. It could also divide itself and recombine. It’s extremely powerful. It’s existence alone elevated Zhao Hai’s offensive strength.
With a wave of his hand, Zhao Hai put away his Spirit Snake needle and then another thing appeared in his hand. This thing looked like a broken spirit snake needle but if you look carefully you would notice that it’s not. Although it also hovered in place, it looked very stiff. It’s much bigger than the Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle that Tang Jie took out, but it’s not as strong, only about a tenth of the original. However, it’s offensive strength couldn’t be looked down on. Compared to most artifacts, it’s still much more powerful.
This was the counterfeit that Zhao Hai made. This imitation was designed by the Space. It’s materials could be acquired by someone like Zhao Hai. And with the help of the scanner, it was finally made.
He made it known that he was going to refine artifacts and he already spent three days inside the Space. If he doesn’t take anything out, then his absence would be unreasonable. So he made this counterfeit version. This thing needs at most ten Experts at the Severed Soul Stage. If the ten experts were adept at using their strength together, then it wouldn’t be impossible for them to break a guardian formation. It can be said that the counterfeit was a success.
However, Zhao Hai didn’t care much about it. To him, this thing was very weak. This would be the artifact he would hand over to Kong Miao and the others.
After looking through the imperfections of the counterfeit, Zhao Hai flashed out of the Space and returned to the residence that Xu Wuzun arranged for him. Then he walked out.
Although Zhao Hai stayed inside the Space for several days, he kept paying attention to the situation outside. The Giant Spirit Realm arrived at the World of Cultivation’s stronghold in less than two hours. They numbered 5000. After going to the World of Cultivation’s stronghold, they immediately went to the Octopus Islands.
Originally, it would be impossible for them to be this fast. In Zhao Hai’s calculations, even with using shuttles like the Highcloud Flying Shuttles, it would take the Giant Spirit Realm five days before they would arrive from their base. The reason why the Giant Spirit Realm was so fast was because they used the transmission formations of the realms close to the World of Cultivation. After three days of traveling, they were able to reach the World of Cultivation’s base.
Naturally, Zhao Hai heard the conversation that these people were having. Regarding the Giant Spirit Realm’s approach, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but hold back a barf. He discovered that the people from the Giant Spirit Realm were stupid.
What happened to the World of Cultivation hasn’t been spread out in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Although the Hundred Treasures Realm wanted to use this method to deal with the Giant Spirit Realm, they didn’t expect things to go this fast. They weren’t ready to capitalize on the situation yet. Because of this, they still haven’t spread rumours attacking the Giant Spirit Realm’s reputation.
However, after using so many transmission formations, the Giant Spirit Realm informed other people that something happened. After all, the Hundred Treasures Realm’s attack on the World of Cultivation wasn’t a secret. This was akin to the Giant Spirit Realm publicizing what happened on their own, which was convenient for the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Zhao Hai was really speechless at people from the Giant Spirit Realm. If it was Zhao Hai, he would first destroy the World of Cultivation and then spread the information to everyone, so they can demonstrate their strength. But the Giant Spirit Realm let people know first. Zhao Hai didn’t know what they were thinking.
However, the Giant Spirit Realm was now his enemy, so he no longer needed to worry about them. After heading out of his cave residence, Zhao Hai flew towards Tang Jie and the others. In these three days, the Octopus Islands have been at full power in preparation. They were working hard on turning the Octopus Islands into an impregnable fortress.
Before long, Zhao Hai arrived at the Great Hall. Although people were protecting the Great Hall, all of these people knew Zhao Hai. Seeing Zhao Hai come, they didn’t block him. On the contrary, all of them gave Zhao Hai a salute.
As soon as Zhao Hai entered the hall, he saw Kong Miao and the others standing before a huge stone table. This table was a sand table shaped like the Octopus Islands. It was divided into all kinds of colors.
Tang Jie and the others were also able to feel Zhao Hai’s presence. Tang Jie looked up and smiled faintly as he said, “You’re out? How did it go?”
Zhao Hai smiled and then took out Tang Jie’s Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle and handed it back. Then he took out the imitation he made and said, “I was able to make a counterfeit. But it’s very far from the original one.”
Tang Jie and the others looked at Zhao Hai’s spirit snake needle with curiosity. Although it was an inferior product, they couldn’t help but recognize that it was really good.
After Zhao Hai explained the abilities of the counterfeit, he discovered that Kong Miao and the others were looking at him in shock.
Zhao Hai looked at everyone and said, “What’s wrong? Although it isn’t a success, it can still be used. I tried my best making it.”
When he heard Zhao Hai saying this, Tang Jie was speechless. Tang Jie smiled bitterly at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, who said that it’s not a success? Let me tell you, this is the best counterfeit that I’ve seen. It can even destroy guardian formations.”
Zhao Hai looked at Tang Jie in confusion as he asked, “Don’t other realms make fake versions of the spirit snake needles? Although it’s not easy, it’s not completely impossible. Although this imitation only has a tenth of the original one’s power, if ten Severed Soul Experts use it, it could still break formations. Even the guardian formation of the Octopus Islands wouldn’t be able to stop it after a few attacks.”
Tang Jie sighed and said, “You’re right. But people have been trapped in making a perfect imitation of the real product. After numerous failures, people stopped trying one by one. So in the end, nobody succeeded.”
Hearing Tang Jie, Zhao Hai didn’t know what to say. He smiled bitterly and shook his head. Then he handed the counterfeit Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle to Kong Miao and said, “Grandmaster, you take this.”
Kong Miao wasn’t polite as he nodded and received it. Then Zhao Hai turned to Xu Wuzun and forced a smile as he said, “Grandmaster Xu Wuzun, I wanted to make two at first, but the materials I have in hand are lacking. Once you give me some materials, I’ll make one for you as soon as possible. Do you need one?”
Hearing this, Xu Wuzun’s eyes shone as he repeatedly nodded and said, “Need, we need one. Give me a list of the materials you need and we’ll get it for you.” Zhao Hai didn’t hesitate and took out a jade slip and then handed it over to Xu Wuzun before saying, “All the things I need are in here. You can have someone prepare it. But it’s better to hurry up, the Giant Spirit Realm is arriving soon.”
Kong Miao and Tang Jie were just looking at the counterfeit spirit snake needle, but after hearing Zhao Hai, they couldn’t help but look up. Then Tang Jie quickly said, “How far are they from here?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “It’s fine. It’s been an hour since they departed from the World of Cultivation’s stronghold. They brought 5000 people, 200 of which are Severed Soul Experts. Moreover, they brought flying shuttles. It shouldn’t be long until they arrive.”
Tang Jie coldly snorted and said, “Five thousand people, it seems like they’re really intent on eradicating you. But 5000 people aren’t enough. We just don’t know if they brought a Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle with them.”
Zhao Hai nodded, “That’s something we don’t know. But they don’t know that you’ve brought a Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle. I don’t think they would bring one. If there’s no spirit snake needle, what do people usually use to break guardian formations?”
Without waiting for Tang Jie to reply, Kong Miao said, “Large artifacts. If there’s no Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle, people would use large artifacts to break guardian formations. However, the process is slower than using a Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle.”
Zhao Hai nodded, then he said, “If they use a Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle, can we do something?”
Tang Jie shook his head and sighed as he said, “So far, there’s no counter to Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needles. The best we have is using another spirit snake needle in order to deal with the other party’s spirit snake needle. However, doing so is actually very dangerous. It must be known that the defensive capability of the spirit snake needles aren’t very good. It might end with both needles being destroyed. Because of this, nobody would use this method.”
Zhao Hai stared, then his eyes shone as he said, “Interesting. If the spirit snake needles are defensively weak, then I don’t mind trying to break it.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Tang Jie couldn’t help but knit his bows as he said, “Little Hai, don’t be complacent. Although the spirit snake needles are defensively weak, they’re still more resilient than most artifacts. Also, spirit snake artifacts are as agile as serpents, it’s hard to hit them with artifacts.”
