Chapter 1507 – Bombing The Enemy Ship
The reason Zhao Hai released his Undead this time was to see how effective they were with the rifles. At the same time, he didn’t want any Fireweavers escaping. If they manage to escape, then the Fireweaver army would get information. When the time comes, things might become more complicated.
Fortunately, the Undead didn’t disappoint him. They lined up in a formation and used their rifles. Their fighting strength was quite good. Zhu Huo and his tamed beast weren’t able to counter-attack before being killed.
Zhao Hai was very satisfied with this result. Although the rifles were good on their own, seeing how good they were in the real battlefield still reassured him.
Zhao Hai currently has a hundred thousand people going against 2000 Fireweavers. Along with the artillery they had, the Fireweavers couldn’t do anything.
Moreover, the Fireweavers discovered that their rifles were of no use to Zhao Hai, which demoralized them even more. The last trace of resistance in their hearts vanished completely.
The three large artifacts continued to chase the Fireweavers. Naturally, they wouldn’t be able to kill every single on. As for those who escaped, they suffered the same fate as Zhu Huo. After a while, not a single Fireweaver was left alive in the battlefield.
Once they could no longer spot any Fireweavers, the three large artifacts regrouped. Zhao Hai glanced at Mu Yu nodded. Mu Yu nodded as well. They didn’t need to speak. It was time to implement what they discussed before.
Zhao Hai waved his hand and the three artifacts began to fly forward. He already asked Zhu Wang where the Fireweaver Army was. It was time to deal with them.
Mu Yu took out a jade sword message and passed the information back to the headquarters. Right now, the headquarters had managed to acquire more troops. As long as they make the proper adjustments, they would be able to empower their defense.
At the same time, Mu Yu knew that if the Fireweavers were to really attack the headquarters, then the result would greatly depend on the Immortal Experts. When the time comes, Mu Yu and the others could only occupy a supporting role.
The three large artifacts quickly moved forward. Everyone on board had happy expressions on their faces. They actually didn’t take a lot of shots since Zhao Hai directly used his cannons to obliterate the enemy. Although they weren’t active participants, the people onboard still couldn’t help but feel ecstatic.
After flying for one hour, Zhao Hai and the others still hadn’t seen anyone from the Fireweaver Race nor the Giant Spirit Realm. It looked like there wasn’t a war going on.
Despite this, Zhao Hai knew that this war had captured the attention of the entire Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. This time, both sides had troops numbered to the hundreds of thousands. This was almost unprecedented. It was impossible to ignore this battle.
Although wars occurred between the Hundred Treasures Realm and the Giant Spirit Realm before, the troops from both sides weren’t that many. At that time, their numbers only reached dozens. Their battles were very discrete. But this time, it seems like both sides were going all-out.
This was a battle for the Hundred Treasures Realm and their position in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. If they survive, then they will rise. But if they failed, they would vanish into history.
After another half an hour, Zhao Hai was finally able to see people from the Fireweaver Race and the Giant Spirit Realm. They were on 20 large ships. However, they weren’t advancing at this time. The ships just stopped in place. It was clear that they were waiting for news.
This was something that the silver needles discovered. In order to be in range to fire at the Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit Realm, they still needed to fly for at least 20 minutes more.
Zhao Hai did not stop. He saw that the 20 ships that the Fireweavers prepared weren’t used for battles but instead for transport. Therefore, Zhao Hai wasn’t worried about anything.
Zhao Hai took out his computer and told Mu Yu about the situation. He had everyone prepare. Twenty minutes was just a moment for cultivators.
Twenty minutes passed in a blink of an eye. Zhao Hai and the others entered the range of the Giant Spirit Realm and the Fireweaver army. The other party also noticed their arrival as large quantities of people flew out of one transport ship.
The ship didn’t look like a wooden sailboat. It had a flat head and didn’t have any sails. It was also very large. One could see from a glance that it wasn’t made for battle.
Naturally, Zhao Hai wouldn’t be polite. After the enemy entered the range of the cannons, he immediately ordered the Undead to open fire. In order to gain the initiative, he had to be the first to attack.
Zhao Hai’s cannon shells contain small spirit snake needles. Naturally, it would be very easy for the shells to deal with transport ships. After a few shots, several holes appeared on the ship. Some shells hit the ship and exploded, scattering small spirit snake needles into the surroundings.
The explosion caused very serious damage. The ship was compact and the people inside were densely packed. When the shells exploded and released a large number of spirit snake needles, even if the cultivators wanted to hide, they would have nowhere to hide in. They were quickly killed by the needles.
Zhao Hai didn’t waste time and turned those who died into Undead and sent them to the Space. Many of the dead weren’t from the Fireweaver Race. The Fireweavers were very concerned about the security of their rifles. Therefore, besides Fireweavers, none of the other troops had rifles. They were just normal cultivators, the weakest of whom were at the Nascent Soul Stage.
One could also see how much the Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit Realm invested in this war. The quality of troops was very high. If the Hundred Treasures Realm didn’t have rifles, then they would never be able to stop this army.
The Fireweaver and Giant Spirit Realm army also discovered what Zhao Hai was doing. They immediately ordered everyone to get out as fast as possible. They knew that if they stayed in the cabins, they would no doubt be killed.
Zhu Yunshan’s eyes were red. He was the leader of the Fireweaver Army. He didn’t expect to encounter an attack from the Hundred Treasures Realm at this time. And this was from the three large artifacts that they were tasked to watch out for.
Seeing Zhao Hai’s face, Zhu Yunshan knew that the 2000 Fireweavers that they sent in advance had been cleaned up. However, he didn’t expect Zhao Hai to have lethal cannons. Those who were in the cabins when the shells exploded died before they could even come out.
Zhu Yunshan really wanted to rush out and eliminate the three large artifacts. However, he couldn’t do so at this time. What they needed to do right now was to evacuate everyone out of their cabins, otherwise they would be killed.
Zhao Hai calmly gazed at the Fireweaver Army. He did not get closer to the enemy. The Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit Realm had been complacent this time. They thought they already won against the Hundred Treasures Realm. They didn’t think that the Hundred Treasures Realm would be able to fight back, so they didn’t bring large artifacts with fighting strength like the Giant Spirit Treasure Ships. Instead, they brought transport ships. So even if the Fireweavers and the people from the Giant Spirit Realm came out of their ships, it would still be difficult for them to cause any damage to Zhao Hai’s artifacts.
The only way for Zhao Hai’s artifacts to be damaged was if they enemy were to rush it. However, with their current state, this will be very difficult to accomplish. Because of this, Zhao Hai didn’t go forward. Although the 20 transport ships weren’t meant for combat, they were still very large. If Zhao Hai and the others rushed over, then the enemy army would turn these ships into fortresses they could attack from. Therefore, Zhao Hai decided to bomb them out first. After destroying the 20 ships, only then would he go forward.
The rumbling of cannon fire continued. Cultivators on the three large artifacts ran to the windows in order to look outside. Kong Miao and Xu Wuzun were one of them.
Looking at the 20 ships on the opposite side peppered with small and large holes, an excited expression couldn’t help but appear on Xu Wuzun’s face. He turned to Kong Miao and said, “Grandmaster Kong, Mister Zhao Hai has truly hidden his strength well. Look at those guys. I’m afraid they will be blown up to bits. Hahaha.”
Kong Miao couldn’t hide his pride. Although Zhao Hai joined the Hundred Treasures Realm, it was undeniable that he came from the World of Cultivation. Zhao Hai’s achievements gave face to the realm.
In the past, the World of Cultivation was basically unknown in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Now, because of Zhao Hai, a lot of realms under the Hundred Treasures Realm took the initiative to build a relationship with Kong Miao. The flattering words he received recently was something he would never imagine in the past.
Kong Miao was also aware that these people were only polite to him because of Zhao Hai. Because of this, he didn’t put on any airs and was also polite to these people. Now that the World of Cultivation was under the Hundred Treasures Realm, they needed to build connections in order to thrive.
After some time, Zhu Yunshan called for statistics on the attack. The numbers he saw were painful. Just in this first batch of attacks, they lost about 20 thousand people. Twenty thousand was a large number in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Lower-grade realms might not necessarily have 20 thousand troops in the battlefield. In other words, Zhao Hai’s cannon fire destroyed about two World of Cultivation’s worth of troops in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield.
Zhao Hai still hadn’t approached and instead continued to fire at the ships. Although Zhu Yunshan wanted to go out, he knew that it was impossible. If he did that, they would only lose more people. He was already prepared to retreat.
At this time, a cold snort was heard followed by a cry of a phoenix. A fiery red figure flew straight from a distance. Its speed was very quick. In a blink of an eye, the red figure was already close to Zhao Hai. From what Zhao Hai can see, it was clearly a Fire Phoenix!
