Chapter 1488 – The Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield’s Big Five
In the past, Zhao Hai thought about how to use the yin-yang pond into the other weapons that Liquid Silver can transform to. This way, his overall strength would increase.
However, since the yin-yang pond would need to shrink in order to fit these artifacts, its benefit would be affected. Therefore, Zhao Hai didn’t do it.
But now Zhao Hai could do it because of the lightning pools. The lightning pool was different from the yin-yang pond. The yin-yang pond absorbs outside energy for utilization.
On the other hand, the lightning pool generated its own strength. The yin and yang lightning exist with each other, without beginning or end. They can naturally produce their own energy.
Zhao Hai installed lightning pools into all of his artifacts. Now, the strength of his magic artifacts has increased.
At this time, Cai’er was thinking about combining the lightning pool with the yin-yang pond. This way, the power of the lightning pools would increase.
After reaching the Transcending Tribulation Stage, Zhao Hai’s spiritual qi became more condensed. He also has a new lightning attack along with a hint of a domain. Moreover, the two can be superimposed into each other.
The strength of the domain was very formidable. His new understanding about domains informed Zhao Hai how powerful Immortal Experts really were.
At the same time, it allowed Zhao Hai to understand the Immortal Stage even more. Although he just reached transcending tribulation, he now understood that in addition to their cultivation, Immortal Experts were also powerful due to their comprehension of domain.
People said that after reaching Transcending Tribulation, cultivation would be smooth sailing to the Severed Soul Stage and the Immortal Stage. There were no barriers between these realms. In fact, this wasn’t true. There were stages between the Transcending Tribulation Stage and the Severed Soul Stage. However, the division wasn’t as clear as the barrier between Nascent Soul and Transcending Tribulation. In order to reach the Severed Soul Stage, the hurdle was the severed soul.
From its name, severed soul means the division of one’s divine soul. Making another soul from the original one. This carried a huge risk. If one’s spiritual qi and spiritual force was insufficient, it would be impossible to reach the Severed Soul Stage. In a way, it was a barrier. Then another barrier appeared between the Severed Soul Stage and the Immortal Stage. This barrier was the comprehension of a domain.
Now that he entered the Transcending Tribulation Stage, because of the lightning pool and his minor understanding of domains, Zhao Hai was certain that if the Immortal Expert came back, the other party could no longer attack his body using their qi.
Despite that, Zhao Hai still admired the strength of the Immortal Stage Expert. The first two attacks that he received caused him to think about retreating to the Space. One could see how powerful they were from this.
Moreover, nobody can guarantee that this was the only ability of the Immortal Stage. Even with his Transcending Tribulation Stage, Zhao Hai still couldn’t compete against Immortal Stage Experts.
Because he understood this point, Zhao Hai could say that Immortal Experts are extremely powerful.
Hearing Zhao Hai, Mu Yu couldn’t help but laugh as he said, “Little Hai, you succeeded in going through your tribulation. With your aptitude, I’m certain that it wouldn’t be difficult for you to enter the Severed Soul Stage. Then sooner or later, you will reach the Immortal Stage. There’s no need to be anxious.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “I’m not anxious. But now that the Giant Spirit Realm’s Immortal Expert has made a move, other Immortal Experts will come out as well. If the other Immortal Experts of the Giant Spirit Realm make a move, then will the Hundred Treasures Realm have enough time to save us?”
Mu Yu stared, he didn’t expect Zhao Hai to be worried about this. To be honest, he hasn’t considered this issue before. Now that Zhao Hai brought it up, he couldn’t help but think about it.
After thinking for a moment, Mu Yu replied, “Rest assured, we will make some preparations. Now that the Giant Spirit Realm’s Immortal Expert has made a move, the Hundred Treasures Realm wouldn’t be idle. They will find a way to deal with the Immortal Experts.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “That would be best. But there’s still no need to be afraid of a few Immortal Experts. I was able to block their attacks before reaching Transcending Tribulation. Now that I have become stronger, I should be able to hold off more attacks.”
Hearing what Zhao Hai said, Mu Yu couldn’t help but laugh. Then he patted Zhao Hai’s shoulder as he said, “Kid, you’re really reckless. That time, the Immortal Expert released a casual attack. Do you really think that you can block an attack with their full strength?”
Zhao Hai just smiled. At this time, a jade sword message stopped in front of Mu Yu.
Upon catching the sword, Mu Yu searched it using his spiritual force. Then his expression changed as he looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, stop the ship.”
Zhao Hai stared, then he quickly stopped the Hell King’s Ship. He looked at Mu Yu and said, “Big Brother Mu, what happened?”
Mu Yu’s expression was ugly as he said, “We can’t go to the Imperial Spirit Sect in the meantime. Immortal Experts have stationed themselves there. They are also authorized to make a move if we attack.”
Zhao Hai, Tang Jie, and Tang Wen stared. Then their expressions changed. Zhao Hai looked at Mu Yu and said, “Big Brother Mu, are you telling the truth? Immortal Experts can make a move? How is this possible? Do they want to cause chaos to the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield?”
Mu Yu replied, “This is information that the realm just sent over. Those Giant Spirit Realm bastards asked the Fireweaver Race for help. With the Fireweaver Race on their side, they’re confident in dealing with us. Therefore, Immortal Experts are now allowed to make a move. The realm is now trying to find a solution.”
Zhao Hai knit his brows and said, “Fireweaver Race? What race is this? Are they very strong?”
Mu Yu’s expression was ugly as he replied, “They’re very strong. The Fireweaver Race is one of the strongest groups of people in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Little Hai, you’ve just come to the battlefield recently, so you don’t have much understanding about the people here. Although the World of Cultivation has some materials about the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, it is still a medium-grade realm in the end. There’s still plenty of things that they don’t know.” After he said this, Mu Yu let out a long breath.
Tang Jie and Tang Wen’s expressions weren’t great either. However, they didn’t make any noise. Mu Yu continued, “In the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, high-grade realms are seen as powerful and prestigious. Actually, high-grade realms are also classified into groups. The Hundred Treasures Realm and the Giant Spirit Realm can only be classified into medium-level high-grade realms. As for those at the high-level, there are only five. There’s the Primal Chaos Realm, the Fireweave Realm, The Sword Realm, the Buddhist Realm, and the Divergent Realm.”
Mu Yu sighed and said, “These five powers are the strongest groups in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Nobody dares to touch their territories. They had large swathes of land as well as innumerable subordinates. But lower-grade realms under them don’t get in contact with them most of the time. These realms just live inside these five realms’ territory. This is the reason why only a few people are aware of their existence.”
“Of the five realms, the Primal Chaos Realm is the most complex and also the most mysterious. They rarely come in contact with others. One could identify their people in just a glance. People from the Primal Chaos Realm always have some mutation in their bodies, like a tentacle for a hand. Not only could these mutations elongate and shorten, it’s also very powerful and can be used as weapons. There’s also people whose feet are different, along with other parts of their bodies. However, these mutations only happen in the men of the realm. Women of the Primal Chaos Realm were generally mages that use special staffs that are connected to their spatial items. Once they cast their spells, potions from their spatial items would aid to reinforce the spell. Their offensive strength is formidable. Once one enters the Primal Chaos Realm, it would be very hard for them to survive.”
“As for the Fireweaver Race, they’re also known as the Hunter Race in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. They carry rifles along with them and also have at least two beasts that they tamed. Their rifles aren’t like the usual rifles that we see. These rifles can launch powerful qi attacks for long-range. Additionally, their tamed beasts not only help them during battle, they can also track people. The Fireweaver Race can also borrow the strength of their beasts in order to increase their own strength.”
“The Divergent Realm consists of people with divergent abilities. They had all kinds of abilities just like Little Hai’s spatial ability or material reconstruction ability. These people are very proficient in using their divergent abilities. They’re the most difficult to deal with.”
“There’s nothing more to say about the Sword Realm. They’re all sword cultivators. Some rumors even state that all the sword cultivation methods present in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield come from the Sword Realm. However, these sword cultivation methods are inferior ones compared to the methods used by the Sword Realm. The Sword Realm’s true cultivation methods cannot be learned by an outsider. And even if someone did, they would be hunted down by the realm.”
“The Buddhist realm is almost like the Sword Realm. Everyone there practices Buddhist Methods. Most importantly, the Buddhist Realm specialize in faith power. Their methods use a lot of faith power, but they also provide a large boost in strength.”
Hearing Mu Yu, Zhao Hai’s eyes shrank. This was the first time he heard about faith power techniques from other people. Moreover, there’s a Buddhist Realm that has Buddhists that practice these techniques. Zhao Hai couldn’t help but think about his 18 Arhat Techniques.
At this time, Mu Yu continued, “Nobody knows about the relationship between these five realms. However, these realms rarely participate in any conflicts. The Giant Spirit Realm pulling the Fireweaver Race to their side isn’t good news. With the Fireweaver Race in the mix, things have become more complicated. Let’s return to the Octopus Islands first and wait for orders.”
Zhao Hai didn’t ask anything as he nodded and turned the ship’s direction towards the Octopus Islands. Meanwhile, Mu Yu went to the cabins and informed everyone about the situation. Naturally, Mu Yu would tell them about the Fireweaver Race. Only very few people from lower-grade realms know about the Fireweaver Race, so it was useless to tell them. Mu Yu just informed everyone that the situation has changed and that they need to return to the Octopus Islands.
Although they felt that it was strange, everyone didn’t say anything. To them, returning to the Octopus Islands was good news. It was much better than going to the Imperial Spirit Sect to fight. However, some people began to ponder about the matter. They felt that the situation wasn’t as simple as Mu Yu made it out to be, but they still didn’t open their mouths.
After telling everyone the news, Mu Yu returned to the top of the pagoda. His expression was still gloomy. Zhao Hai looked at Mu Yu and said, “Big Brother Mu, does the Hundred Treasures Realm have no connections to the Five Realms?”
Actually, Zhao Hai’s question was a probe. He guessed that the Hundred Treasures Realm’s conflict with the Giant Spirit Realm was instigated by someone else. He wanted to know which of the five it was.
Disappointingly, Mu Yu shook his head and said, “We don’t. Our Hundred Treasures Realm don’t have any connections with the Five Realms. It’s precisely because of this that the realm made us go back. The Fireweaver Race isn’t just any high-grade realm. The rules for the Immortal Stage don’t apply to them. This is the reason why the Giant Spirit Realm is allowed to use their Immortal Experts. The jade sword message revealed that the Immortal Expert who attacked you has been killed by our Immortal Expert. Because of this, the Fireweaver Race began to appear. Now, the Hundred Treasures Realm is trying to solve this problem. This is the best opportunity for the Hundred Treasures Realm, and we’re not prepared to let it go.”
Zhao Hai knew what opportunity Mu Yu was talking about. This is the opportune moment for the Hundred Treasures Realm to get rid of the Giant Spirit Realm. If they missed this opportunity, the Giant Spirit Realm would be able to recover and the stalemate between the two realms would continue. The Hundred Treasures Realm doesn’t want this to happen. They had prepared for a long time, so they didn’t want to give this chance up. The Giant Spirit Realm wouldn’t make the same mistake twice!
