Chapter 1464 – Fierce
Cultivation methods used by practitioners use part of the excess elemental energy and transform it. This would balance the five elements inside the cultivator’s body. Then the practitioner would cultivate the energy transformed from the five elements.
Elemental poison breaks the balance of the five elements inside the body. Moreover, it does it in an overbearing way. The poison would rampage around the victim’s body. The damage ranges from damage to the meridians to awakening the heart’s devil.
Because of how terrifying elemental poison was, Tang Jie’s throwing knives were famous in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. It’s not strange for people to die under these knives.
The throwing knives shot towards Ba Li. Ba Li coldly snorted and turned around. Then a shield appeared and blocked his back. As this happened, the sword had already sent an attack towards Tang Jie.
With a wave of his hand, a dish-shaped artifact appeared underneath Tang Jie. Then the dish-shaped artifact began to spin.
When the sword attack slashed towards Tang Jie, the disk-shaped artifact spun him out of the way. At the same time, the Five Element Flying Knives swam like fishes around Ba Li, looking for an opportunity to attack.
Zhao Hai could see that the two were just probing each other right now. From what he saw, Ba Li’s style was vigorous. He uses a huge shield along with his huge sword. They were all heavily skewed towards power. As long as attack hit the enemy even once, it would deal an enormous amount of damage.
As for Tang Jie, he was agile. His techniques focus on flexibility. Even his artifacts were agile. They were like mercury seeping through the ground, looking for any opportunity to penetrate.
At this time, the attacks between the two increased. The two were done probing each other and were now starting to act seriously.
Once the two became serious, Zhao Hai finally saw how terrifying they were. There wasn’t anything strange about their fighting style. It was quite similar to the World of Cultivation. Ba Li released several heavy weapons while Tang Jie took out small artifacts like he was throwing coins on the ground.
Ba Li used his shield to protect himself while Tang Jie used his disk-shaped artifact. But instead of blocking attacks, Tang Jie’s disk-shaped artifact dodged attacks. Ba Li’s attacks simply couldn’t reach Tang Jie.
Although the battle between the two looked very lively, their artifacts didn’t have any effect at all. Ba Li’s heavy weapons couldn’t hit Tang Jie while Tang Jie’s small weapons couldn’t penetrate through Ba Li’s shield. Tang Jie’s weapons could only circle around Ba Li to look for any opportunities to attack.
After watching for a while, Zhao Hai understood how Tang Jie could make his weapons so flexible. This was because everytime he attacked, he didn’t go all in. Tang Jie probably only used 70 percent of his strength.
Ba Li’s situation wasn’t any different. Although his heavy weapons seem to require his full strength to control, if he did so, then his attacks wouldn’t have been as effective.
The two were playing mental chess with each other. The battle was quick, each move was heart-stopping. The two focused on each other and ignored everyone else. This was because they couldn’t afford to be distracted. One moment of carelessness would spell their defeat.
It wasn’t only the two who were focused on the fight, those watching it were also focused. This was because the two were very important people. They couldn’t afford anything happening to them.
Everyone was focused on the fight. If necessary, they would step in and intervene as soon as possible. Therefore, both sides were staring at the battle anxiously. They didn’t dare miss anything.
Zhao Hai was also closely observing the fight. He wasn’t only preparing to intervene he was also looking at the fighting styles of the two. There is a lot to learn from the battle between geniuses from the Giant Spirit Realm and the Hundred Treasures Realm.
An hour passed by unknowingly, but the two were still fighting hard. Sweat began to appear on their faces. Although both were strong, it was still difficult to be unaffected after a long high-intensity fight. They still had a lot of energy, but the mental pressure was exhausting.
Zhao Hai focused more on the two. He believed that the battle was drawing its end. He just has that feeling.
Just as Zhao Hai thought of this, a change suddenly happened on the battlefield. Tang Jie was a little slower in dodging and a mace artifact that Ba Li used managed to hit his left arm. The mace took out a chunk of flesh from Tang Jie’s arm. Tang Jie was immediately bleeding hard.
Seeing this, Tang Wen could no longer continue watching. He immediately led the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm to take their weapons out. The people from the Giant Spirit Realm noticed this and made their move as well. People from both realms rushed into the battlefield, ready to rescue the people from their side.
Zhao Hai didn’t move. He felt that something was strange. He can see that Tang Jie has the strength to avoid it. It seems like all of this was intentional.
This caused Zhao Hai to be puzzled. He didn’t understand if Tang Jie really did this intentionally, and why he did it. However, seeing the expression on the faces of the people from the Giant Spirit Realm, Zhao Hai understood that Tang Jie did it to keep them here.
With this thought in mind, Zhao Hai looked at Kong Miao and said, “Grandmaster, have everyone attack the Giant Spirit Realm. When the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm retreat to the Octopus Islands, we’ll retreat as well.”
Kong Miao was taken aback as he looked at Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai didn’t say anything and just nodded. Naturally, Kong Miao didn’t need to ask as he complied and commanded everyone to take out their weapons and attack the people from the Giant Spirit Realm.
After talking to Kong Miao, Zhao Hai also sent a voice transmission to Xu Wuzun. Although Xu Wuzun was also stunned, he didn’t ask anything and also commanded the Hundred Treasures Realm to attack. He just thought that it was Tang Jie who gave the order to Zhao Hai. This was because Tang Jie was evidently fond of Zhao Hai, even preparing for him to go to the Hundred Treasures Realm. Because of this, Xu Wuzun was polite towards Zhao Hai.
The two sides joining the attack didn’t cause the Giant Spirit Realm to turn anxious. The people from the Giant Spirit Realm were currently inside the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship. The defensive strength of the ship was formidable, the Xu Race and the World of Cultivation’s artifacts wouldn’t be able to break through it at all.
Ba Li returned to the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship and immediately commanded it to charge. Seeing this, the people of the Hundred Treasures Realm couldn’t help but be flustered as they retreated.
At this time, the Hell King’s Ship appeared and rushed towards the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship. A bang was heard as the Hell King’s Ship was thrown out. However, the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship didn’t seem to be affected and it kept charging forward. What appeared next was a pagoda and it also clashed with the treasure ship. However, it was also knocked back. After that, 12 metal beasts appeared. Although the metal beasts were already big, they looked like puppies next to the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship.
The metal beasts also collided with the treasure ship. However, they also didn’t achieve anything. The Giant Spirit Treasure Ship still kept charging forward.
Naturally, all of these things were released by Zhao Hai. When the Hell King’s ship was thrown out, he spit out blood. And when the 12 Metal Beasts were hit, not only did he spit out blood, all of his orifices were oozing with blood. Moreover his expression was pale.
At this moment, a large needle 100 meters long shot out from the Hundred Treasures Realm’s side. It slammed into the Giant Spirit Treasure Realm and caused an explosion. The needle was also thrown back, but the treasure ship was also halted.
Actually, the preceding hits already reduced the speed of the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship. The needle was the final thing needed for the ship to stop.
As soon as the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship was stopped, it would no longer be easy for it to chase the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. It was like a car. It was impossible for a small car to stop a huge one. However, it would be hard for a large car to catch up to a smaller car when both started at the same time. Because of its mass, the larger car would need more time in order to gain momentum. Only once its momentum was enough could it be an unstoppable machine.
When the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship stopped, the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm, World of Cultivation, and the Xu Race immediately surrounded it. After surrounding the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship, the three groups immediately commenced their attack. But even if the treasure ship was halted, its formidable defense still remained. Moreover, the treasure ship began to retreat slowly. No matter what the three groups did, they weren’t able to prevent the treasure ship from retreating.
It must be known that the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship was just gathering its strength. Once it fell back a certain distance, it would initiate its second charge.
Once the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship drew back some distance, the people from the Hundred Treasures Realm retreated towards the Octopus Islands. Seeing Tang Jie and the others retreat, the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race also retreated. Before long, the three groups were heading towards the Octopus Islands.
Once they arrived at the Octopus Islands, the three teams immediately calmed down. Their flurry outside couldn’t even be seen. At this time, Tang Jie’s voice was heard, “Little Hai, where is Little Hai? Has anyone seen Little Hai?”
Tang Jie stood in front of everyone as he loudly shouted. The blood flow on his arm has already been stopped. But he still looked bloody and somewhat distressed.
Zhao Hai flew from the World of Cultivation’s side. He looked at the bloody Tang Jie and asked, “Brother Tang, I’m here. What’s the problem?”
Tang Jie looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, are you alright? I just saw you being heavily injured.”
Zhao Hai knew that he would be asked this question. A ball of water washed his face with a wave of his hand and his face was clean in a blink of an eye. His face still looked ruddy, but he didn’t look wounded at all. Zhao Hai smiled and said, “I’m fine, don’t worry. I just did it to fool those fellows.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Tang Jie couldn’t help but laugh. He patted Zhao Hai’s shoulder and said, “Good kid. You actually discovered that I intentionally injured myself.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Brother Tang, I’ll have to trouble you. But the next time you get hurt, you should choose a sharp weapon. The mace is a heavy weapon among heavy weapons. You might have died there if something went wrong.”
Tang Jie couldn’t blame Zhao Hai for this. But he just laughed and said, “You’re really observant. But now, that Ba Li guy wants to kill me and you. As the matter stands, they wouldn’t leave this place easily. Our mission has already been accomplished.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “But from what I can see, the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship is about to charge once more. Brother Tang, have people take the counterfeit spirit snake needles. Don’t worry, I won’t go out. Instead, I’ll send the Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots. With this, the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship shouldn’t be able to hit the island’s guardian formation. But let’s also leave some hope for the Giant Spirit Realm so that they wouldn’t run away.”
Tang Jie nodded, then he said, “I’m afraid we would be having a difficult few days ahead of us. Ba Li isn’t a fool. Seeing us holed up in here, they will definitely call troops from the Giant Spirit Realm’s territory. Once the small realms arrive, we would no longer be able to hold back our strength.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “When the time comes, we would no longer need to hide our strength. If the Giant Spirit Realm asks the smaller realms for help, then they would have to level the Octopus Islands to the ground or else they would lose a lot of face in front of their subordinates.”
Tang Jie laughed and said, “Right, it’s just like you said. Little Wen, immediately arrange people to go out and use the counterfeit spirit snake needles. You lead them. Our priority is holding back the Giant Spirit Realm. Do whatever you can to prevent them from hitting the island’s guardian formation.”
Tang Wen nodded and immediately led a group of people out. In addition to the people tasked with controlling the fake spirit snake needles, there were also 500 people from the Hundred Treasures Realm. Meanwhile, Kong Miao and Xu Wuzun sent out two thousand people from their side. Zhao Hai also released his three Eight Cyan Imperial Chariots.
Ba Li had a calm expression on his face, but there was a feeling of pride in his eyes. The Giant Spirit Realm and the Hundred Treasures Realm had been hostile towards each other for many years. However, their geniuses rarely met each other. Today, he was finally able to face Tang Jie and won. How could Ba Li not be happy with this outcome? It’s just a pity that he wasn’t able to kill Tang Jie.
