Chapter 1592 – Seven-colored Phoenix
The Poison Mountains defense line was a newly built fortification of the Fireweavers. In the past, the Poison Mountains was a medicinal production area for the Firewaver Race. It wasn’t intended to be used for the military. This was because the Fireweavers believed that they didn’t need to be guarded against the Land of Chaos. Nobody from that place would dare attack them. They only need to guard against the Divergent Realm and the Sword Realm.
But now, they had no choice but to build a defensive line on the Poison mountains. This was because the Hundred Treasures Realm were coming to attack them.
The Hundred Treasures Realm was going to attack them! The Fireweavers didn’t think that this would happen. In their opinion, the Hundred Treasures Realm was a lower realm. This was a realm that they could attack whenever they wanted. And if they exerted a little effort, they would be able to destroy it.
But afterward, the Fireweavers discovered that they made a mistake. The Hundred Treasures Realm wasn’t a soft persimmon that could be easily pinched. The Hundred Treasures Realm made the Fireweavers suffer big losses multiple times.
This time, the Hundred Treasures Realm even announced that they were going to attack just as the Divergent Realm and the Sword Realm attacked the Fireweavers. This caused the Fireweavers to be angry. But they also understood that these three realms should have made an agreement prior to this.
Although the Fireweavers wanted to send troops to repel the Hundred Treasures Realm army, they found that they were lacking manpower. In the end, they can only set up a defensive line on the Poison Mountains.
It was very easy for cultivators to establish fortifications. Things like digging were extremely simple since they only needed to use a few spells. The most important task was arranging the formations.
The Fireweavers attached great importance to this defensive line. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have sent 300 Immortal Experts to guard it. Of these 300 Immortal Experts, 50 of them were from the Fireweaver Race while the others were from their subordinate realms. Moreover, the realms where these Immortal Experts came from had territories located just beyond the Poison Mountains. This way, they wouldn’t slack off in their duties. Otherwise, once the Hundred Treasures Realm breaks through, it would be their realms who would be attacked first.
Zhu Zhifeng stood on the Poison Mountains and looked into the distance. He already received news that the Hundred Treasures Realm Army was going to arrive soon. A huge battle was approaching.
Zhu Zhifeng was one of the rare female Immortal Experts. Although she was a woman, nobody dared look down on her. Even the other Fireweavers treated her with respect. This was because she was quite strong, even amongst the Immortal Experts of the Fireweaver Race.
Zhu Zhifeng was now standing on the Poison Mountains with a gloomy expression. There were two tamed beasts next to her. These were two bird-type beasts, both of which were very beautiful. These birds were known as rainbow phoenixes. They were very powerful beasts that can fly at fast speed and can use any element to attack.
Zhu Zhifeng was the commander-in-chief of the Poison Mountain fortification. She was very clear about the importance of the Poison Mountains to the Fireweavers. If the Hundred Treasures Realm breaks through this defensive line, then they could quickly drive towards the Fireweaver domain.
From what she heard from the people who fought against the Hundred Treasures Realm, it seems like the Hundred Treasures Realm has developed rifles like the Fireweavers. They even made cannons that were better than the ones the Fireweavers had. Zhu Zhifeng found it hard to believe.
Now that she was going to face the Hundred Treasures Realm, she wanted to see how strong they really were. Just as Zhu Zhifeng was thinking about this, one of the seven-colored phoenix beside here suddenly called out. Zhu Zhifeng looked up and couldn’t help but be shocked.
Zhu Zhifeng already knew that the Hundred Treasures Realm had sent a lot of large artifacts to attack the Fireweavers. But she didn’t expect the Hundred Treasures Realm to send this many.
She had seen Giant Spirit Treasure Ships before when then cooperated with the Giant Spirit Realm. She was also aware that the Hundred Treasures Realm got their hands on its production method. But she didn’t think that the Hundred Treasures Realm would be able to refine this much.
Before long, the fleet of the Hundred Treasures Realm arrived at the Poison Mountains. Zhu Zhifan looked at the Hundred Treasures Realm’s large artifact and coldly snorted. Then she flew up along with her Rainbow Phoenixes.
Zhu Zhifan looked at the Hundred Treasures Realm’s fleet, then she loudly said, “Commander of the Hundred Treasures Realm fleet, please come out for a conversation.” Before any battle, talking generally couldn’t be avoided.
Cultivators were like this. They obviously weren’t afraid to fight to the death, but before the battle, they also needed to fight for who was on the side of justice. Actually, this was just an interlude. However, this was an interlude that everybody was used to. Although Zhao Hai didn’t like this, he didn’t try to change it. He didn’t have the ability to do it right now.
Mu Yao appeared on the ship’s bow. He looked at Zhu Zhifan and said, “So it’s the Seven-colored Phoenix. Let this Mu Yao give you his greetings.”
Since she used rainbow phoenixes as her tamed beasts, people gave Zhu Zhifan the nickname of “Seven-colored Phoenix”. Also, although she wore ordinary Fireweaver clothing, it looked beautiful when she wore it due to some modifications. Naturally, the most remarkable thing about Zhu Zhifan was the fact that she wasn’t carrying rifles with her. Instead, she had two pistols on her sides. These pistols’ barrels were lengthened at about half a meter long.
When Mu Yao gave his greeting, Zhu Zhifan coldly snorted and said, “Mu Yao, stop pretending to be polite. What are you doing here bringing so many people?”
Mu Yao looked at Zhu Zhifeng, then he suddenly laughed, “What I’m doing? Then let me tell you, we’re here to take revenge. Your Fireweaver Race attacked my Hundred Treasures Realm twice. Now is the time for the Hundred Treasures Realm to return the favor.”
Zhu Zhifeng didn’t expect Mu Yao to give this answer so easily. When she heard Mu Yao, her expression couldn’t help but change. Then she said, “Mu Yao, you need to think about this. After this, the Hundred Treasures Realm will face our Fireweaver Realm’s retaliation for a hundred generations.”
Mu Yao laughed and said, “If we don’t come, then would you leave the Hundred Treasures Realm alone? Talking right now is useless. What you need to do is worry about us being able to get through your defense.” As soon as he said that, the entire Hundred Treasures Realm fleet moved. They lined up sideways as cannons were revealed.
As soon as she saw this, Zhu Zhifeng’s expression changed. She didn’t expect Mu Yao to take swift action. Fortunately, they were also prepared. She immediately returned to the defense line. The defensive formation of the Poison Mountains defensive line has already been activated long ago.
Because this was a newly-made defensive line, its defensive formation wasn’t very formidable. However, Zhu Zhifeng was confident that they would have no problems blocking the attack of the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Just as Zhu Zhifeng returned to the defensive line, the Hundred Treasures Realm fleet began firing. The cannons fired almost at the same time. Only one sound was heard before the projectiles were in the air.
The defensive line was made halfway up the Poison Mountains. The entire mountainside has been hollowed out. Besides supporting pillars, the rest were filled with various artifacts. To defend the mountains, the Fireweavers prepared more than 200 artillery. However, these artillery didn’t have large calibres. Now that the Hundred Treasures Realm has begun firing, the Fireweavers also return fire.
However, Zhu Zhifeng finally discovered that her thoughts were incorrect. Although the cannons of the Hundred Treasures Realm fired at the same time and their shells were flying in one direction, once they entered the periphery of the defensive line, the shells curved and attacked a uniform point.
Zhu Zhifeng didn’t expect the Hundred Treasures Realm’s cannons to be so strange. Moreover, she knew that if the cannons of the Hundred Treasures Realm continued to attack that one spot, the defensive formation would definitely break.
Before Zhu Zhifeng could direct people to deal with the attack, the shells hit the defensive shield. The collision caused the formation to rumble.
‘Bang’ ‘bang’ ‘bang’ ‘bang’
Loud sounds were heard before an opening appeared on the defensive shield. Then the Hundred Treasures Realm fired its second volley, expanding the hole they made. The middle of the defensive line has been opened up for the Hundred Treasures Realm.
The Fireweavers were in shock. They didn’t expect the formation they carefully arranged to be broken in just two rounds of cannon fire from the Hundred Treasure Realm.
At this time Sword Shuttles departed from the Hundred Treasures Realm fleet and then shot straight through the hole. These Sword Shuttles narrowed themselves while keeping their sharpness. Their unexpected entry caused a one-sided slaughter.
It must be said that the ability of the Fireweavers to fight was strong, but their defensive capabilities were weak. And with the power of the Sword Shuttles, the defensive line of the Poison Mountains has been pierced through like a hot knife through butter. Nobody in the Poison Mountains was able to stop the attacks.
Once the Sword Shuttles shot through the defensive line, Zhu Zhifeng knew that things weren’t going well. She waved her hand as she held her pistols. Then she began sending bullet after bullet towards the Sword Shuttles.
A few sounds were heard as Zhu Zhifeng’s bullet hit the sword shuttles. Zhu Zhifeng was very confident in here attacks. She believed that her shots were enough to deal with a sword shuttle, unless an Immortal Expert was controlling it.
But to Zhu Zhifeng’s disappointment, although she hit the sword shuttles, they weren’t damaged at all. Instead, the shots were deflected. Then the sword shuttles continued moving forward as though Zhu Zhifeng didn’t make an attack.
