Chapter 1495 – Annihilated!
The Fireweavers died under Zhao Hai’s silver needles. When he shrunk his large artifacts, Zhao Hai also secretly released silver needles. He saw that the enemy couldn’t continue firing for a long time. Their beasts would die soon. And as soon as the beasts die, their transformation would naturally end.
And just as he thought, when the beasts died, the transformation was cancelled. Not only was the transformation cancelled, the Fireweavers seem to have been weakened. Zhao Hai saw this as a good opportunity.
And Zhao Hai wouldn’t let this good opportunity go. The silver needles immediately attacked. This time, Zhao Hai didn’t attack their throats. Once the needles come in contact with their skin, the Fireweavers would immediately notice. Therefore, Zhao Hai chose to directly attack their hearts this time.
Once the Fireweavers died, their rifles also returned to their usual form. Only the bullets remained large. Then soon after that, the corpses of the Fireweavers as well as their rifles disappeared.
Zhu Gufeng also saw what happened. This was the first time since the start of the battle that the Fireweavers suffered any losses. Zhu Gufeng was enraged as he shouted, “You dared kill my people!”
Although they had exchanged blows with Zhao Hai, none of the Fireweavers died. Those who died were beasts. But this time, it was the Fireweavers who were killed. Moreover, hundreds of them died at once. How could Zhu Gufeng just accept it?
Zhu Gufeng was stunned by his anger, then he fired one shot after another. But after the three large artifacts had shrunk, they became more agile. Zhu Gufeng and the others couldn’t hit them. After a few more shots, more Fireweavers transformed back because their beasts had also died.
At this time, Zhu Gufeng knew that the situation had gone wrong. But it was now too late for regret. The tamed beasts were not far from death.
Then at this moment, Zhao Hai’s three large artifacts returned to their normal size and then began charging over. Zhu Gufeng gritted his teeth and began shooting once more. But after the fifth shot, his Blood Jade Toad died.
Just as Zhu Gufeng returned to his normal form, he immediately felt a painful sensation on his chest. He lowered his head only to see a small wound near his heart. Then after a moment, he felt his heart being crushed.
Zhu Gufeng gave out a deprecating smile as he spurted a mouthful of blood. He looked at Zhao Hai and then said, “You actually dared to kill Fireweavers, you will die without a grav….” Before he could finish speaking, his body lost its strength and fell down. But soon after that, his body disappeared.
Zhu Gufeng was the strongest among the Fireweavers sent here. Even he was killed by Zhao Hai, let alone the others. The Fireweavers who looked aggressive before were now dead in an instant.
With the Fireweavers dead, Zhao Hai and the others immediately rushed towards the Giant Spirit Realm army. At this moment, the people from the subordinate realms already ran away. The others from the Giant Spirit Realm also ran away. Ba Tu knew that he couldn’t stop the enemy on his own, so he can only command his Giant Spirit Treasure Ship to turn around and run away.
Zhao Hai didn’t chase them down. This was because he already gained a lot of good things. He still needs to digest what he obtained. He wanted to equip people with rifles as soon as possible.
And the ones Zhao Hai wants to equip with the rifles were the Undead. Naturally, it wasn’t for the strong Undead. The rifles would be given to the average Undead at Foundation Establishment Stage or less. They would be much more useful if they had rifles.
Most importantly, besides the rifle, Zhao Hai also thought about his cannons. Before this, the magic cannons on his ship had already faltered in their usefulness. When he ascended, the magic cannons could no longer deal great damage to enemies. They could no longer injure Core Formation experts, much less those in the Transcending Tribulation Stage.
Now that the Fireweavers had come, Zhao Hai was able to see a ray of hope. Although the rifles of the Fireweavers looked obsolete, their range was very far. And once they transform, their lethality would be even bigger. Naturally, Zhao Hai can’t use rifle techniques with his Undead, but he can at least make cannons referencing the Fireweaver rifles. Once he succeeds, with the enormous quantity of his Undead, who would be his opponent in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield?
Because of this, Zhao Hai no longer chased the enemy. After cleaning the scene, Zhao Hai led everyone to return to the Octopus Islands.
When they were heading back, Tang Jie and Tang Wen got on to the Hell King’s Ship. When they embarked, Tang Jie laughed as he greeted Zhao Hai. Zhao Hai also gave a happy smile as he greeted the two.
After some time, the three calmed down. Tang Jie looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Good, Little Hai. You’re really something else. I really didn’t expect us to win against the Fireweavers. Why didn’t we chase? Now that those Fireweavers are dead, the subordinate realms of the Giant Spirit Realm would no longer have any thoughts of fighting back. If we pursue, we might even get control of the Imperial Spirit Sect.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly as he shook his head and said, “Don’t worry about that. And what can we do if we get the Imperial Spirit Sect? We’re already having a hard time defending the Octopus Islands. And we can invade the Imperial Spirit Sect another time. Moreover, it would be bad for us if we go into the Giant Spirit Realm’s territory at this time. The Fireweaver Race just lost 2000 of their people. They definitely wouldn’t let us off. It’s better for us if we stay here.”
Tang Jie didn’t say anything more. He also knew that the Fireweaver Race has now become their enemy. The Fireweaver Realm was known as one of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield’s Five Great Realms. Now, Tang Jie thought that what he said was a bit crude.
Tang Jie nodded and said, “Alright, then let’s return to the Octopus Islands first. After that, we’ll send a letter to Big Brother Mu so that he wouldn’t be worried about us.” Zhao Hai nodded. Then he waved his hand as the three large artifacts sped towards the Octopus Islands.
As Tang Jie stood on the Hell King’s Ship, he sighed and said, “I must say, without these three large artifacts, we would have lost the battle. The rifles of the Fireweavers aren’t easy to avoid. Their transformed versions are terrifying as well.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “In addition to my three large artifacts, I also have a set of treasures I obtained back in the Lower Realms. This set of artifacts has been integrated into my Liquid Silver. They are the 12 metal beasts. Also, I obtained a cultivation method that includes a sword formation. Brother Tang should also see how flexible and powerful my 12 metal beasts were. With Liquid Silver in my hands, the Fireweavers would not be able to get through my defenses.”
Tang Jie nodded and said, “No wonder you’re able to rapidly advance after ascending. You actually managed to get such good benefits in the Lower Realm. Hahaha. That’s good. As long as the Fireweavers can’t go through your artifacts, they would not be able to defeat us.”
Zhao Hai shook his head as he sighed and said, “Things aren’t that simple. It’s said that a monk can’t run away from his temple. Our method can be used to guard the Octopus Islands. But if the Fireweavers go after the Hundred Treasures Realm, this would no longer work. The Hundred Treasures Realm has a large territory. If the Fireweavers ignore us and go into the Hundred Treasures Realm’s domain, then we can only face them the conventional way. When the time comes, my three large artifacts would not be able to fit everyone.”
Hearing what Zhao Hai said, Tang Jie’s mood turned heavy. He knew that Zhao Hai was telling the truth. If the Fireweavers really intend to wage war, then they would attack the Hundred Treasures Realm’s territory. And if the territory is lost, the prestige of the Hundred Treasures Realm would disappear. When that happens, they would be like the Giant Spirit Realm, no longer able to hold on to their subordinate realms.
The reason why they were able to fight the Fireweavers very well was because the Fireweavers underestimated them. Also, they relied on the large artifacts in order to deal with the Fireweaver attacks. But if the Fireweavers attack the Hundred Treasures Realm’s territory, the battle would be stretched out into a large swathe of land. Therefore, this strategy would no longer be suitable. With two sides battling each other over a large area, three large artifacts couldn’t do anything significant. Although Zhao Hai’s large artifacts were strong, if the Fireweavers sent tens of thousands of riflemen, it would be difficult for the large artifacts to make a move. Don’t forget that the 2 thousand Fireweavers were able to drive Zhao Hai back for ten thousand meters.
Zhao Hai looked at Tang Jie and said, “Brother Tang, it’s best if you inform the realm that we need a large number of materials sent as soon as possible. I have obtained the Fireweavers’ rifle and I want to make copies. If I succeed, then our fighting strength would be a step closer to the Fireweaver Race.”
Tang Jie’s eyes shone, he looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, can you really copy the Fireweavers’ rifles?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “I think so. I was able to copy the Formation Breaking Spirit Snake Needle, let along a rifle. So I want to give it a try. It would be good if I’m able to copy it.”
Tang Jie laughed as he patted Zhao Hai on the shoulder. Then he said, “Alright, then leave this matter to me. Focus on your research, I reckon the realm would immediately agree.” Before this, Tang Jie was still puzzled about why Mu Yu cared too much about Zhao Hai. But now he understood. Zhao Hai’s ability to reconstruct an artifact was indeed very important for the Hundred Treasures Realm!
