Chapter 1512 – Huge Harvests
Zhao Hai was already exposing his abilities this time. Although he hadn’t moved his more powerful Undead, every Undead with rifles were sent out. In any case, Mu Yu and the others weren’t here. Zhao Hai thought that it was time to teach the Fireweavers a lesson they would never forget.
Zhu Gui discovered that his spatial ability could no longer restrain Zhao Hai. Moreover, Zhao Hai has already taken out his three large artifacts. Despite this, Zhu Gui didn’t stop firing his rifle and was now aiming at the large artifacts. But in the end, it didn’t have any effect. Zhu Gui knew that this was because of Faith Power.
In the past, Zhu Gui heard about the infinite and wondrous uses of Faith Power. However, he didn’t believe it at that time. He thought that people were elevating Faith Power because they couldn’t acquire it.
However, it seems like these rumors weren’t false. Faith Power was indeed formidable. No wonder a lot of people wanted to get their hands on it.
Zhu Gui wasn’t very strong among the Immortal Experts, but he wasn’t weak as well. It was just that his opponent this time was an anomaly. Zhu Gui being able to force Zhao Hai to use Faith Power was already an extraordinary feat.
Zhao Hai knew that he would have to use Faith Power sooner or later, but he didn’t expect to use it this soon. But since he already took it out, then he wouldn’t be polite.
Zhao Hai used his three large artifacts as well as more than 200 cannons to bombard the Fireweaver Army. At the same time, the three large artifacts were charging over in full force.
Although Zhao Hai was commanding the three large artifacts to attack the enemies, he excluded the two silverwhip snakes from being targets. He was currently using the Beast Controlling Technique to subdue the two beasts.
But in turn, this also left Zhao Hai with little energy to micromanage the large artifacts and the Undead. Therefore, Zhao Hai handed the control over to Laura and the others while he focused on the two silverwhip snakes.
Zhao Hai was very concerned about the silverwhip snapes. This was because he really wanted them for the Space. This way, the Space would have more powerful beasts and also the beasts of the Space would be strengthened. At the same time, he also wanted to see the effect of the Beast Controlling Technique. He had not used this technique before, so he naturally wants to try it out.
Zhao Hai discovered that the silverwhip snakes had intense reactions to the technique. They weren’t willing to submit to him. However, Zhao Hai wasn’t worried much about it. He would grind them down until they could no longer resist.
Zhao Hai reckons that the reason why these silverwhip snakes didn’t submit sooner was because of their strength. Another important reason why they were hard to subdue was the fact that they had been raised by Zhu Gui ever since they were little. Their loyalty to Zhu Gui had been engraved deep into their souls.
Zhao Hai’s action was basically stealing someone’s own hand. Naturally, it would be very difficult. If these two silverwhip snakes were in the wild, then they would have submitted. The Buddhist Beast Controlling Technique wasn’t a joke.
Although the control over the three large artifacts were handed over to Laura and the others, their fighting strength didn’t decrease. Conversely, it had increased. If commanding ability was concerned, Zhao Hai couldn’t compare to Lizzy and Megan.
Amidst the crackle of gunfire, the three large artifacts crashed onto the Fireweaver Army’s formation. Although Zhu Gui was defending with all his power, he couldn’t do anything to the three large artifacts reinforced with Faith Power.
Once the formation was broken through, the Undead on the large artifacts began to attack. Their rifles had been improved, it was much more lethal compared to the standard rifles of the Fireweavers. The Fireweaver Army couldn’t do anything against the charge of the three large artifacts.
Zhu Gui’s eyes were burning as he looked at the three large artifacts. He didn’t expect these artifacts to be so formidable. He actually couldn’t block them using his Immortal-level strength.
Zhu Gui clenched his teeth. He decided to give up on dealing with Zhao Hai and would instead attack the Hundred Treasures Realm’s headquarters. In his opinion, as long as the Hundred Treasures Realm was dealt with, then Zhao Hai would become a rootless wild ghost. He would no longer be able to go through any storms.
Thinking of this, Zhu Gui received his nether arctic fire and rifle. He reluctantly glanced at the two silverwhip snakes and then at Zhao Hai before he vanished.
Although Zhao Hai focused on subduing the silverwhip snakes, he was still paying attention to Zhu Gui. He didn’t expect Zhu Gui to actually give up on the snakes. Seeing Zhu Gui disappear, Zhao Hai immediately knew where he was heading to. Zhao Hai’s expression couldn’t help but change. Just as he was about to give up on subduing the silverwhip snakes and taking the three large artifacts back, he heard Cai’er’s voice, “Young Master, don’t worry. Sir Tang Yaoen and the others have returned to the headquarters. And since Zhu Gui has been fighting you, he only has about a fourth or a third of his strength remaining. He wouldn’t be Sir Tang Yaoen’s opponent.”
Hearing Cai’er, Zhao Hai stared, then he smiled and said, “Good. Since Elder Tang Yaoen is back, then I no longer need to worry. Cai’er, help me deal with these people. I need to focus on subduing these long worms.”
Long worms were another name for snakes, it was something that Zhao Hai’s folks back on Earth used to say. Knowing that Tang Yaoen and the others were back at the headquarters, Zhao Hai felt relieved.
What Zhao Hai didn’t expect was that as soon as Zhu Gui disappeared, the resistance of the silverwhip snakes decreased. Zhao Hai was stunned, then he was elated. He immediately intensified his attack. After more than half an hour, Zhao Hai finally felt the waves of obedience coming from the snakes.
Zhao Hai was shaken, then he immediately understood that the Beast Controlling Technique had succeeded. Zhao Hai stopped the technique and the two silverwhip snakes flew towards him. Zhao Hai calmly looked at the snakes, he could no longer sense any hostility coming from them.
The two silverwhip snakes flew to Zhao Hai’s side and rubbed their bodies against him. They looked like children seeing their father coming home.
Seeing the actions of the silverwhip snakes, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but laugh. He waved his hand and sent the two silverwhip snakes to the Space. Then he began to pay attention to the situation of the battlefield.
The situation wasn’t doing very well for the enemies. Although the Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit Realm sent more than 80 thousand people, they didn’t have any lage artifacts. Now, the strongest of them, Zhu Gui, has left. They could no longer do anything against Zhao Hai.
Additionally, Zhao Hai has 200 thousand Undead with rifles. It’s no wonder why the Fireweaver and Giant Spirit Realm army wasn’t doing very well.
Zhao Hai calmly looked at these people. There’s no room for pity when it comes to enemies. At this point, he already killed 30 thousand people. He turned them all into Undead and sent them to the Space. They would provide him with more Faith Power.
In the past, Zhao Hai was continuously afraid of Immortal Experts. Because of this, he avoided any confrontation with them. However, after fighting Zhu Gui, Zhao Hai knew that he could go against them if he used Faith Power.
But Zhao Hai still decided to minimize his usage of Faith Power in the future. A stronger enemy might be waiting for him. And Zhao Hai didn’t want to expose all of his cards.
After Zhu Gui left, Zhao Hai no longer added any Faith Power to his artifacts. But despite this, the Fireweaver and the Giant Spirit Realm army still couldn’t defend themselves.
Also, Zhao Hai noticed another thing. The protective shield outside his large artifacts now has a layer of blue flame. This was the nether arctic flame that Zhu Gui uses.
When Zhao Hai used Faith Power to free the surrounding Space, he also found time to receive some of Zhu Gui’s bullets. Naturally, this resulted in the Space acquiring the nether arctic flame. In turn, this allowed the three large artifacts to have stronger defenses. At the same time, Zhao Hai’s offensive means had become better.
It was at this time that some subordinate realms from the Fireweaver and Giant Spirit Realm army started to rout. It’s impossible for these subordinate realms to be fully committed like the Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit Realm. After all, they still have their own realms to worry about. The same was true for the subordinate realms under the Hundred Treasures Realm. If Zhu Gui really managed to kill his way to the headquarters, and Mu Yu and the others were unable to resist, then the subordinate realms would run away. They couldn’t bear to suffer heavy losses.
Zhao Hai didn’t care about these people. It was impossible for him to keep all of these 80 thousand troops from escaping. Although he has 200 thousand Undead in his control, the enemy army is composed of experts no weaker than the Nascent Soul Stage, with most of them at the Transcending Tribulation Stage. Moreover, each one of them had hidden cards in their hands. If these people wanted to escape using all of their means, then it would be impossible to stop them.
Zhao Hai also knew that, with these people escaping, his Faith Power would be exposed before long. However, Zhao Hai wasn’t afraid of it. He can use Faith Power in order to battle an Immortal Expert. If someone wanted to cause him trouble, then they would have to consider their own strength.
The retreating troops caused a chain reaction. In the end, even the Fireweavers and the people from the Giant Spirit Realm began to retreat.
Surprisingly, the Fireweavers were very disorganized in their retreat. They simply ran on their own. On the other hand, the Giant Spirit Realm were retreating in a battle formation. They were slow, but they were still retreating.
Seeing the Giant Spirit Realm, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but bitterly smile. He understood why they were like this. The Giant Spirit Realm had faced Zhao Hai multiple times already. They knew that if they retreat without any organization, then they would lose a lot of people. Therefore, they decided to retreat in an organized and steady manner.
Zhao Hai also discovered that the Giant Spirit Realm weren’t panicking when facing the three large artifacts. Whenever Zhao Hai’s large artifacts come rushing over, they would give way. And after each attack, the Giant Spirit Realm’s people regrouped in the shortest amount of time.
At the same time, Zhao Hai saw that the Giant Spirit Realm’s formations weren’t the same as before. In the past, because they were like the other cultivators who attack in a long-ranged manner, their formation was compact.
However, this formation was detrimental against the Hell King’s Ship and the other large artifacts. Therefore, they loosened their formation. They no longer adapted a large square-shaped formation and instead divided themselves into smaller squares. Because of this, they were able to avoid Zhao Hai’s large artifacts. At the same time, these smaller squares could join up with the other squares to perform a united attack.
One could see that the Giant Spirit Realm had improved after each battle. They were growing and becoming harder to deal with. If Zhao Hai didn’t release his Undead, then the Giant Spirit Realm wouldn’t have lost as many people.
From the way the Giant Spirit Realm was retreating, Zhao Hai knew that even if he goes over with the Undead, it would still be impossible for him to kill a lot of them. Therefore, Zhao Hai turned his attention to the Fireweavers. The Fireweavers were unlike the people from the Giant Spirit Realm, they scattered in a chaotic manner. How could Zhao Hai let go of this opportunity? He immediately took his three large artifacts and chased them down.
Seeing Zhao Hai coming after them, the Fireweavers ran faster. Despite this, Zhao Hai was able to kill a large number of them. After two hours of pursuit, Zhao Hai began to slowly head back to the Hundred Treasures Realm’s headquarters.
Zhao Hai’s harvest this time was very rich. Of the 100 thousand-man army of the Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit Realm, 60 thousand fell to Zhao Hai’s hands. Additionally, he was able to acquire the two silverwhip snakes.
Zhao Hai wasn’t anxious to return to the headquarters. This was because he was already aware of what happened. Zhu Gui appeared at the Hundred Treasures Realm’s headquarters to make a surprise attack. However, he didn’t expect Tang Yaoen to be present. With his strength already spent fighting Zhao Hai, Zhu Gui could no longer escape. In the end, he was killed by Tang Yaoen.
Additionally, more and more Immortal Experts were returning to the headquarters. This made the headquarters safe once more. Therefore, there’s no need for Zhao Hai to hurry back.
Originally, Zhao Hai was planning to clean up the allied army of the Fireweavers and the Giant Spirit Realm. Then he would return to the headquarters. However, upon seeing Mu Yu extremely worried and was about to lead a group of people to look for him, Zhao Hai decided to return to the headquarters first and listen to instructions.
