Chapter 1468 – Tang Jie’s Discovery!
After Kong Miao and Xu Wuzun left, Tang Jie turned his head to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, tell me the truth, what divergent ability do you have?”
Hearing Tang Jie, Zhao Hai replied, “About my ability, I think it’s already well known. It’s nothing serious.”
Tang Jie looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, I’m not talking about your spatial ability. We all know about it. What I mean is, don’t you have another divergent ability?”
Zhao Hai stared, then his expression changed. Did Tang Jie discover the existence of the Space? However, this shouldn’t be the case. Zhao Hai quickly recalled what he did to expose the Space.
Seeing Zhao Hai’s expression, Tang Jie smiled and said, “I think I guessed right. You really do have another ability. Tell me, does it have something to do with reconstruction?”
Hearing Tang Jie, Zhao Hai stared. But he was now prepared, so he revealed a startled expression.
When he saw this, Tang Jie knew that he had hit the mark. Then in a light tone he said, “Did I guess correctly? I heard that someone from the Demon Puppet Realm has a strange ability. Because of him, the Demon Puppet Realm managed to obtain so many refining techniques as well as methods to make artifacts. You have the same ability right?”
Zhao Hai relaxed as soon as he heard this. If this was what Tang Jie discovered, then everything’s fine. As long as the Space was kept secret, then he could reveal other things.
Zhao Hai looked at Tang Jie and then sighed as he said, “Actually, my ability doesn’t only reconstruct, it can also synthesize materials like refining. I can combine whatever materials I want, making my refining much easier.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Tang Jie laughed and said, “Fantastic! Then as long as we deal with the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship, can you get it’s refining method, the artifacts and materials used to make it, as well as the proportion of materials?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “As long as we can get the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship, I can reconstruct it. And if we have enough materials, we can make as many Giant Spirit Treasure Ships as we want.”
Tang Jie’s eyes shone, then he laughed and said, “Good, that’s good. How about the Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “It’s the same. As long as you give me enough materials, I can make Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needles.”
Tang Jie laughed as he patted Zhao Hai’s shoulder. Then he said, “That’s good. With this, your status in the Hundred Treasures Realm would surpass me in no time.”
Zhao Hai looked at Tang Jie in confusion as he said, “Why? Even if i can refine items, I can’t be the only refining master in the Hundred Treasures Realm, right?”
Tang Jie looked at Zhao Hai and then shook his head as he said, “Kid, you don’t even know how lucky you are. Are you even aware that refining can fail? Even the refining of ordinary artifacts can fail. If you can reach a success rate of 20% then you are already considered as a top refining master. As for powerful artifacts like the Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle, the success rate of making it is less than 1%. So many materials are wasted in making it. Even if there’s a 1% success rate, not everyone has so many materials to waste. Therefore, top refining masters are respected in many realms. And not everyone is like you, being able to refine artifacts with a 100% success rate.”
Zhao Hai forced a smile and said, “It’s not that I have a 100% success rate. It’s just that I can decompose my failures and use them to refine once more. It can be seen that I have a 100% success rate, but I’m just not wasting any materials.”
Tang Jie laughed and said, “That’s still very great. Little Hai, with you, the Hundred Treasures Realm will increase in strength. To tell you the truth, the Hundred Treasures Realm has already amassed a lot of treasures. However, we have too few refining masters. Once you join, those treasures will be turned into powerful weapons.”
Zhao Hai looked at Tang Jie and said, “Brother Tang, you didn’t think about the greatest use of my ability. What do you do to damaged artifacts or artifacts you gained after looting dead enemies?”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Tang Jie’s eyes lit up as he said, “Those things, you can reuse them and make them into new artifacts? Damn, I didn’t think of that. If that is the case, then this is much bigger than I thought it would be!”
Tang Jie stood up and walked around the room. Once his excitement has sizzled down, he looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, are you confident that we can deal with the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I’m very confident. That unwieldy thing isn’t a threat to me. It’ll be easy to defeat it.”
Tang Jie knit his brows and said, “Little Hai, don’t be too overconfident. The Giant Spirit Treasure Ship isn’t that weak.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Brother Tang, rest assured. I wouldn’t be complacent. Look at this.” After he said that, Zhao Hai waved his hand and a Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle appeared in front of him. This spirit snake needle didn’t have the stiffness that the fake spirit snake needles had. It looked incredibly flexible. Most importantly, it looked more flexible that the real Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle.
Tang Jie stared and couldn’t help but touch the spirit snake needle. Naturally, he couldn’t see anything special. He scanned it with his spiritual force but was still unable to find something out. He looked at Zhao Hai and said, “What is this?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “It’s my artifact, Liquid Silver. You should have information about it. This is the masterpiece of a genius refiner of the World of Cultivation. He modeled it after the Void Temple’s Ten Thousand Transformations Staff. It’s made very well, but he wasn’t able to finish the last step. Afterward, I finished it and completed the last step. In my hand, this artifact can transform at will and even fuse with artifacts that I refine, as you can see. This Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle is an imitation, but it’s much better than the imitations I made. It’s actual power isn’t bad. As long as we stop the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship, I can use this to break its defensive formation. In addition to our other artifacts, even if the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship’s defense is strong, I’m afraid it still wouldn’t be able to withstand it.”
Tang Jie’s expression turned brighter and brighter as he listened to Zhao Hai. Then he laughed and said, “Alright, then I’ll trust your confidence. Hahaha. Good. Let’s see if the Giant Spirit Realm continues to be arrogant after this.”
Zhao Hai smiled and didn’t say anything. Tang Jie thought about the situation more and after some time he looked at Zhao Hai and Tang Wen, “Little Hai, Little Wen, let’s go wait for Big Brother Mu Yu at the Transmission Formations. I reckon they will be arriving soon.” Zhao Hai and Tang Wen complied as they stood up and followed Tang Jie out.
When he got outside, Tang Jie asked two people from the Hundred Treasures Realm to inform Xu Wuzun and Kong Miao and ask them to head to the transmission formations. Mu Yu had a high status in the Hundred Treasures Realm. Like Tang Jie, he was seen as a key genius that needs to be cultivated. Mu Yu was also being trained to be a future head of the Hundred Treasures Realm.
There’s no need for Tang Jie to express Mu Yu’s status, Kong Miao and Xu Wuzun would still meet him. If Mu Yu and the others think that they had been neglected, then Xu Wuzun and the others would regret it very much.
Before long, the group arrived at the transmission formation. The allocated area was huge. After looking at the transmission formations, Tang Jie turned to Xu Wuzun and said, “Mister Xu Wuzun, have the accommodations been prepared?”
Xu Wuzun nodded and said, “Captain Tang, rest assured, everything has been prepared. Once the reinforcements arrive, they can move in immediately. There’s no need to worry”
Tang Jie nodded and said, “Is there any information coming from the sentries outside?” The sentries that Tang Jie meant were the Xu Race that were tasked as lookouts. After all, at this point, only Zhao Hai had the means to detect them here in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Even the Giant Spirit Realm would find it difficult to detect the Xu Race.
The main purpose of these sentries was monitoring the Giant Spirit Realm, preventing Ba Li and the others from making any surprise attack. The farthest sentry location was ten thousand li away from the Octopus Islands. If the Giant Spirit Realm wanted to attack, the Octopus Islands would have enough time to react.
Xu Wuzun replied, “The last report I got was an hour ago. Nothing has happened yet. It seems like the Giant Spirit Realm has retreated. I think they’re waiting for reinforcements.”
Tang Jie nodded and said, “It’s just as we expected. Ba Li went back to get more manpower before attacking once more. This time they will have a lot more people. Even if we have reinforcements, we still need to be careful. Based on our previous fights against the Giant Spirit Realm, the Giant Spirit Realm would bring about 50 thousand people this time. Maybe they’ll bring even more.”
Hearing this, Xu Wuzun and Kong Miao’s expression turned ugly. Xu Wuzun muttered, “Fifty thousand people? If we add Ba Li’s group, then wouldn’t they number 55 thousand?”
Tang Jie nodded and said, “And it could be much more, not less. Even if Senior Brother Mu Yu arrives with his reinforcements, they will only number 30 thousand people. Almost half of the Giant Spirit Realm. Because of this, we need to take advantage of every situation as possible.”
Xu Wuzun and Kong Miao nodded, their expressions were somewhat heavy. They knew that losing this war meant that the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race would lose thousands of people. The Giant Spirit Realm might not be able to do anything to the Hundred Treasures Realm, but they will certainly retaliate against the World of Cultivation and the Xu Race.
