Chapter 1597 – Violent Charge
Zhao Hai calmly looked at the enemy army in front of him. The opposite party had about 20 thousand people. They were lined up in a huge group, only blind people couldn’t see them.
However, Zhao Hai didn’t stop the ships. Instead, he accelerated forward. The Fireweavers thought that the Hundred Treasures Realm would stop and exchange polite greetings. But they were wrong! Instead of stopping, the Hundred Treasures Realm continued barreling through!
Zhu Jieying saw this and was startled, he immediately shouted, “Disperse! Scatter and attack!” At the same time, the rifle in his hand began firing.
Zhu Jieying’s rifle was a bit similar to Zhu Gui’s. It was a huge rifle, looking more like a small cannon. The rifle’s bullets were also very big, and they were burning with orange flame.
The other Fireweavers also took their rifles and began attacking the hundred Treasures Realm fleet. The other cultivators didn’t do anything and just changed their army formation. The Hundred Treasures Realm fleet wasn’t in their range yet and they also didn’t have rifles in their hands. With their common artifacts, once they reach a far enough distance, they wouldn’t be able to deal enough damage. Therefore, they didn’t participate in the offense.
But as soon as the fleet of the Hundred Treasures Realm entered their attack range, the cultivators immediately took their weapons out and attacked.
However, how could the ships of the Hundred Treasures Realm be that easy to deal with. Nobody could be seen on the Giant Spirit Treasure Ships of the Hundred Treasures Realm. Once the Fireweaver bullets hit the ships, they were simply deflected. At the same time, the artifacts of the cultivators weren’t even able to make a scratch on the ships. Moreover, all of these attacks didn’t slow the ships down.
Fortunately for the attackers, they changed their formation prior to their offense. And since Zhao Hai had no intentions of dealing with them, the Hundred Treasures Realm fleet just whizzed by. The Fireweaver army could only look at the ships’ behind and eat dust.
Seeing their blockade being pretty much ignored, Zhu Jieying’s expression couldn’t help but turn ugly. He immediately took out a jade sword message to tell Zhu Zhifeng about the situation.
When Zhu Zhifeng heard the news, her facial color changed. She understood that the Hundred Treasures Realm already knew about her plan. But this only made Zhu Zhifeng more convinced that they needed to stop the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Zhu Zhifeng immediately dispatched 500 experts. These cultivators appeared in an area very close to the place where the Fireweavers and the Divergent Realm were fighting.
As she sent the group out, Zhu Zhifeng also ordered everyone to stop. She knew that chasing any more would be useless. With their speed, it was impossible to catch up to the Hundred Treasures Realm. Therefore, she began to organize batches and sent them through transmission formations. She plans to use this method in order to catch up to Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai was also aware of Zhu Zhifeng’s actions. However, he didn’t care about it. With the cultivators and Immortal Experts providing energy, the fleet would be able to get through even the Immortal Experts of the Fireweavers.
With the fleet’s speed, they were now not too far away from the Divergent Realm. By this time, they had broken through five blockades. And on one of the blockades, he was able to kill a couple of Fireweaver Immortals.
It was because of this loss that Zhu Zhifeng no longer dared to block the Hundred Treasures Realm too much.
However, in order to avoid being exhausted, the cultivators supplying energy to the ships began to rest and go in shifts. Even so, the fleet was still very fast. After all, there were still 10 Immortal Experts supplying each ship. The energy provided by these experts couldn’t be underestimated.
Zhao Hai knew that there were still a Fireweaver blockade in front of him. And this blockade wouldn’t be easy to break through. This time, the Fireweavers deployed a lot of large artifacts to stop them.
The Fireweavers didn’t have a lot of large artifacts and they also weren’t good at them, but this didn’t mean that they didn’t use them at all. And because they cooperated with the Giant Spirit Realm, the Fireweavers still had a few Giant Spirit Treasure Ships. They also have some sword shuttles as well as large beasts that had great defensive power. This was the last blockade of the Fireweavers, the most difficult one they laid out.
Zhao Hai also prepared to set out a full power. Now 20 Immortal Experts were sending energy to each large artifact, and all of the cultivators were giving energy as well. Zhao Hai also released Undead to help send energy. This caused the entire fleet to approach the Fireweaver blockade with an unprecedented amount of momentum.
This time, Zhao Hai didn’t make the turtle take the lead. The turtle was a beast that could be greatly injured. The turtle was there to keep up appearances and defend, not be the main offence for the fleet. With its strength, it could face several Immortal Experts in a proper battle.
The Fireweavers also knew that the Hundred Treasures Realm had no intentions to stop. They knew that if they stood in place, they would be hit by the Hundred Treasures Realm. Because of this, the beasts and large artifacts of the Fireweavers also charged towards the fleet.
The two sides looked like knights going for a duel, charging at each other. The two sides got closer and closer, each staring at the eyes of the other. Their eyes were red, as though forgetting the existence of life and death.
The fleet of the Hundred Treasures Realm consists of 13 Giant Spirit Treasure Ships as well as the sword shuttles. But in a head-on charge like this, these sword shuttles weren’t useful at all.
Besides the 13 Giant Spirit Treasure Ships, there was also the turtle. But since the turtle has been placed behind, the spearhead of the fleet was the Hell King’s Ship. The Hundred Treasures Realm’s fleet was like an arrow with the Hell King’s Ship at the tip. Then the Pagoda and the Giant Spirit Treasure Ships were behind it.
On the Fireweaver side, they had 5 Giant Spirit Treasure Ships, 50 sword shuttles, and about 1000 large beasts. Naturally, their formation wasn’t as sharp as Zhao Hai. They looked like a tide rushing towards the Hundred Treasures Realm fleet.
Boom! Both sides finally hit each other. The Hell King’s Ship hit the enemy Giant Spirit Treasure Ships. Although the enemy Giant Spirit Treasure Ships dented the Hell King’s Ship, it failed to cause it to stop. Meanwhile, the Hell King’s Ship’s battering ram entered the enemy ship’s bow, opening it up before splitting it in half. Then the Hell King’s Ship continued flying forward.
Although the other Giant Spirit Treasure Ships weren’t as miserable as the first one, their fate was fairly similar. The Giant Spirit Treasure Ship that clashed with the Pagoda might be the luckiest one. The Pagoda didn’t have as strong of an impact as the others. However, it still managed to deflect the ship that clashed with it. After all, once two forces clash, one of them had to get out of the way.
As for the beasts, they also couldn’t stop the advance of the Hundred Treasures Realm. All beasts that went head-on against the Giant Spirit Treasure Ships were turned into meat paste. As for those who just brushed with the ships, their bones had been shattered and their muscles torn. Beast parts could be seen being thrown around from the area of impact.
This clash ended with the Fireweavers’ complete defeat. Besides those in the periphery, the group sent forward by the Fireweavers were annihilated. This caused the higher-ups of the Fireweavers to pay more attention to the large artifacts of the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Upon leaving the battlefield, Zhao Hai and the others flew directly towards the Divergent Realm. At the same time, Zhao Hai put away the Giant Spirit Treasure Ships that he destroyed, this included the scrapped sword shuttles. Naturally, his actions were done in secret. Mu Yao and the others didn’t know about it.
Mu Yao stood on top of the fortress, looking in front of him. Then he turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, that was the last blockade of the Fireweavers? Then we should reach the Divergent Realm soon.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Yes, that was the last blockade of the Fireweavers. The Divergent Realm frontline is just ahead. We will approach from the Divergent Realm’s domain.”
Mu Yao nodded, “If there’s no more danger, we should slow down. We can’t cause any misunderstanding with the Divergent Realm. After all, we’re currently allies.” Zhao hai nodded, then he informed the people on the other large artifacts to stop sending energy. The fleet slowed down instantaneously.
However, this slowdown was only relative. The actual speed of the fleet was still very fast. After more than two hours of flying, they officially entered the battlefield of the Divergent Realm and the Fireweavers.
The speed of the fleet slowed down once more. All of the Immortal Experts were now on the fortress looking at the situation around them.
At this time, several black spots could be seen flying from the distance. Then the black spots slowly increased and before long a battalion appeared in front of the Hundred Treasures Realm. Zhao Hai could also see that these people had wings.
Mu Yao waved, and the entire fleet stopped. Then the turtle slowly moved forward towards the front. At the same time, the winged people stopped.
Seeing the other party stopping, Mu Yao cupped his fist and said, “The Hundred Treasures Realm’s Mu Yao has seen everyone. Are you our friends from the Divergent Realm?”
One of the winged people cupped his fist towards Mu Yao and answered, “This one is the Divergent Realm’s Eighth Scouting Team Captain, Ulitan. I greet Elder Mu Yao and everyone from the Hundred Treasures Realm.” After he said that, he made a gesture and moved back. The Hundred Treasures Realm fleet followed behind.
Before long, a huge camp appeared before the people of the Hundred Treasures Realm. The camp was enormous, encompassing an entire mountain. The mountain was full of cave residences. People could be seen coming in and out of these caves.
The camp didn’t have any defensive measures, not even a defensive formation. This was something that Mu Yao didn’t expect.
Just as the Hundred Treasures Realm fleet arrived outside the camp, a group of people left the camp to meet them. The person who led this team was Sleat.
When Mu Yao saw that Sleat was coming, he immediately led the other Immortal Experts out of the fortress to give their greetings. When both sides were close enough, Sleat cupped his fist and said, “Elder Mu, you’re here. Welcome to our camp.”
Mu Yao also cupped his fist and said, “Elder Sleat, you didn’t have to come out and greet us. We’ve made you wait”
Sleat smiled and said, “You’ve broken through several blockades of the Fireweavers, that was admirable. Please, the Elders of my realm are waiting for you. Then you all have a rest in our camp.”
Mu Yao smiled and said, “Elder Sleat doesn’t need to trouble himself. We’re already used to staying inside our large artifacts. There’s no need to arrange a place for us. We shouldn’t make the other Elders wait for too long. Please lead us in.” Sleat nodded and said, “Alright, then follow me.”
Zhao Hai and Mu Yu didn’t follow them. Also, only 100 Elders followed Sleat to the Divergent Realm camp. The others returned to their respective large artifacts. Zhao Hai and Mu Yu stayed on the fortress rooftop. They were drinking liquor as they looked at the Divergent Realm camp. Then Mu Yu suddenly said, “Little Hai, this camp doesn’t have any defenses. Is this because they’re confident or arrogant?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “I think they’re confident. Moreover, the camp isn’t without any defenses at all. They chose this position because it’s the highest point in the region. The surrounding vegetation has also been leveled, so there’s no chance for the enemy to perform a surprise attack. Also, haven’t you heard what the winged man said, he’s a captain of the scouting team. This means that the Divergent Realm has scout teams. The Fireweavers couldn’t come over and attack at all. This allows the camp to be relaxed.”
Mu Yu nodded, “The Divergent Realm is really formidable. I’m afraid there are around 300 thousand cultivators in this camp. All of them are at the Transcending Tribulation Stage and above. As for Immortal Elders, I have no idea.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “They definitely have a lot of Immortal Experts. They want to deal with the Fireweavers, how could they not spare enough manpower? The Fireweavers aren’t easy to deal with as well, so the Divergent Realm cannot half-heartedly send troops. I have to say, I really underestimated the Five Great Realms.”
Mu Yu drank from his cup and enjoyed the fragrance of the alcohol. Then he said, “Soon, we’ll be able to defeat them. Soon.”
