Chapter 1504 – Confident!
Tang Yaoen coldly snorted and said, “Those trash. They really expect us to fall to the Fireweavers. Didn’t they think about what would happen if we get swallowed by the Fireweaver Race? A group of shortsighted people.”
Mu Yao snorted as well, his eyes fiery as he said, “Those people actually don’t want the Fireweavers intervening in the Ten-thousand Realm battlefield. They are shrewd. They aren’t acting now so that we’ll fight the Fireweavers on our own and expend our strength. They want to use this opportunity to grab profits. But how could they know that we already have rifles and managed to kill a great number of Fireweavers. If they get word about this, then they would no doubt make a stand. What we have to do right now is to force their hand.”
Tang Yaoen stared as he looked at Mu Yao and asked, “Senior Brother, what do you mean? What do you plan to do?”
Mu Yao coldly snorted and said, “We need those people to see that we have the strength to defeat the Fireweavers. Once Little Hai comes out and leads the hundred thousand army to attack the Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit Realm, the Fireweavers would know who they’re dealing with. And as long as Little Hai wins, then those fellows waiting at the back wouldn’t be able to get a seat at the table.”
Tang Yaoen stared for a moment, then he frowned and said, “Brother, will this work? Little Hai is strong, but it shouldn’t be easy for him to deal with the Fireweaver and Giant Spirit Realm army.”
Mu Yao coldly snorted and said, “If the Immortal Experts of the Fireweaver Race and the Giant Spirit Realm don’t interfere, then dealing with the army would be no problem. Haven’t you seen the cannons sent by Little Hai? Those cannons are very powerful. It isn’t easy to refine, but Little Hai’s artifact can transform into a cannon. I reckon Little Hai will make use of it. With the cannons, the Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit Realm wouldn’t be faring well. But those Immortal Experts supporting them wouldn’t just stay and watch. However, once they make a move, we’ll be prepared for it. We’ll help Little Hai so that he wouldn’t be hindered by Immortal Experts.”
Tang Yaoen snorted and said, “They will have a hard time facing Little Hai. He was able to face two attacks from an Immortal Expert even before reaching Transcending Tribulation. Now, Immortal Experts wouldn’t be able to deal with him in a short time. When the time comes, we would be able to block them.”
Mu Yao nodded and said, “Everyone, prepare for the battle.”
At this time, a voice was heard from outside, “Zhao Hai has come to see the Elders.”
Mu Yao smiled faintly and said, “Come in.” Shortly after, Zhao Hai walked in. He already knew that this place was filled with Immortal Experts. The Hundred Treasures Realm truly invested a lot in the headquarters. They even moved their Immortal Experts over. They were here to fight head on against the Fireweaver Race.
After Zhao Hai entered, he gave Mu Yao and the others a salute. Some of the Immortal Experts hadn’t seen Zhao Hai before and were very curious about why Mu Yao and Tang Yaoen looked at him highly. These people heard how Mu Yao placed great importance on Zhao Hai.
Mu Yao looked at Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, I’ll task you to use your large artifacts as well as a hundred thousand-man army to face the Fireweaver and the Giant Spirit Realm army. You need to win this battle, we can’t afford to lose. How confident are you? Tell me the truth.”
Zhao Hai looked at Mu Yao and said, “Replying to the Elder. Honestly, if the Immortal Experts of the other party don’t interfere, then I’m confident of defeating the army.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai’s response, the Immortal Experts in the hall were in an uproar. They knew very well how strong the Fireweaver and Giant Spirit Realm army was. Even with the help of the rifles, the Hundred Treasures Realm was still pushed back into the headquarters. And now, there’s Zhao Hai claiming that he can defeat the enemy army. He couldn’t just be talking big, right?
Hearing Zhao Hai, Mu Yao stared, he looked at Zhao Hai’s eyes and said, “Little Hai, you have to know that this is wartime. This is a military assignment, it isn’t the time to be making jokes!”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I don’t joke in battles, Elder. This young one is truly confident!”
Mu Yao hesitated for a moment before he said, “Alright. You don’t need to worry about the Immortal Experts, we’ll take care of it. As long as you can repel the enemy army, you will be awarded first-class honors.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Thank you, Elder. This Zhao Hai is now going to prepare.”
Mu Yao waved his hand and said, “Go and prepare. As long as you’re done with your three large artifacts, Little Yu will arrange people to embark. This time, Little Yu will be the commander and you’ll be the deputy.”
Zhao Hai nodded. He understood that although he gained some fame in the Hundred Treasures Realm, he was still far from Mu Yu. In the fight against the Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit Realm, Mu Yu’s prestige and fame was needed, so he needed to be a commander. Only someone of his status could command everyone.
The reason Zhao Hai was given the position of deputy commander was to give him a status that allowed him to give orders to people. Whether they defeat the Fireweavers or not depends mainly on Zhao Hai.
The Hundred Treasures Realm needs Zhao Hai’s abilities and artifacts. But because Zhao Hai was an outsider, his status wasn’t enough to convince people. So instead of making Zhao Hai commander, he gave the position to Mu Yu instead. Mu Yao knew that Mu Yao wouldn’t be able to be very useful in the battle. Mu Yu couldn’t do much against the Fireweaver and Giant Spirit Realm army. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have been able to push towards the Hundred Treasures Realm’s headquarters. Therefore, they can only rely on Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai approved of Mu Yao’s arrangement. He also knew that he didn’t have enough status to command the people of the Hundred Treasures Realm. The position of deputy commander was just proper for him. At the same time, this position would also elevate his status in the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Zhao Hai received the assignment and then gave everyone a salute before leaving. Outside the hall were Mu Yu along with Tang Jie and Tang Wen. These four people will be in charge of commanding their army.
Mu Yao also thought of assigning other Severed Soul Experts to act together with Zhao Hai. However, Mu Yao was also afraid of these Severed Soul Experts hindering Zhao Hai. The upcoming battle was just too important for the Hundred Treasures Realm. The Hundred Treasures Realm was crumbling under pressure recently, they needed a victory to show the other high-grade realms that they can deal with the Fireweavers. The other high-grade realms needed to feel that they would be left out of the loot if they were to continue to delay.
Mu Yao knew that the other high-grade realms could see that if it weren’t for the Fireweavers, then the Giant Spirit Realm would have been defeated. The Hundred Treasures Realm couldn’t swallow the Giant Spirit Realm, so these high-grade realms could still get some benefits. Now that the Fireweavers have entered the stage, things have become a bit different.
These realms knew how harmful it would be if the Fireweavers were to join the battles in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. But since these realms were led by old foxes, they want the Hundred Treasures Realm to shave off some of the strength of the Fireweaver and the Giant Spirit Realm army, and might even be defeated in their hands. When the time comes, they would act and defeat the Fireweavers in one fell swoop and completely destroy the Giant Spirit Realm. This way, they could divide the Giant Spirit Realm and the Hundred Treasures Realm’s territories among themselves.
For this reason, these high-grade realms didn’t send troops. But if the Hundred Treasures Realm displays a strong hand, then the situation would be different. These people would be anxious and they would no doubt be forced to make a move.
Zhao Hai had just closed up and took with him his three large artifacts. He said that he was going to integrate new materials into his artifacts. Naturally, this meant that people needed to get off the artifacts. Because of this, although Mu Yu and the others were ready, they still haven’t entered the artifacts.
When Zhao Hai came out, he immediately released his three large artifacts. Then people began to embark. Zhao Hai would be on the Hell King’s Ship, Mu Yu would be on the Pagoda, and Tang Jie and Tang Wen would be on the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship. Once everyone has entered the large artifacts, Zhao Hai immediately left the headquarters.
Although the Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit Realm were practically outside the Hundred Treasures Realm’s headquarters, they still haven’t been able to attack it. The outposts outside were still resisting. The Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit Realm were currently attacking them with all of their strength.
As Mu Yu stood on the Pagoda, he used his spiritual force to look at its changes. The Pagoda originally had nine floors each with their own windows. These windows were initially intended for cultivators to release their attacks. But now, these windows had large cannons jutting out from them. The cannons were much thicker compared to the mortars.
Mu Yu could count 72 cannons on the Pagoda alone. He turned his attention to the Hell King’s Ship and the Giant Spirit Treasure Ship and could see roughly the same amount of cannons. There were also several Undead standing behind the cannons. Although they didn’t hold anything, they all had spatial equipment on them. Mu Yu didn’t have to look at what’s inside to know that it had ammunition.
Mu Yu let out a long breath and took back his spiritual force. He turned his head towards an outpost not far away. This one hasn’t received any attacks yet. However, a cold glint passed through Mu Yu’s eyes. He had seen too many outposts like these being extinguished by the enemy. He hated the Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit Realm for this. He wanted to take revenge!
