Chapter 1745 – An Unfortunate Accurate Prediction
The transcending tribulation experts didn’t expect the battle in the Inferno Valley to end so quickly. They thought that they would have a hard battle against a heavily defended fortress. After all, they have received information about the refining base. They didn’t expect that the only thing they would do here was to swat some flies. This caused them to be somewhat embarrassed.
Now, they were afraid that the Roaring Flame Sect’s headquarters would be defeated before they arrived. Then this would be the easiest sect annihilation in the history of the Black Tiger Gang.
Naturally, this wouldn’t happen. The Roaring Flame Sect’s headquarters wasn’t the same as the refining base. Although the refining base held great strength, its advantage was its small size. It wasn’t suitable for battles between large artifacts. This explains the reason why there were no large artifacts in the valley.
Moreover, Zhao Hai was able to trap the transcending tribulation experts of the refining base. Then with the help of the earth fire, he was able to attack them to submission.
On the other hand, the Roaring Flame Sect’s headquarters was placed on a different terrain. Its defenses were the strongest in the sect. Also, the large artifacts of the sect were centralized in the headquarters. It wouldn’t be as easy for the Black Tiger Gang to capture it.
The Roaring Flame Sect’s large artifacts were also quite famous in the Northern Divergent Province. It was known as the Fire Chariot. Just by its name alone, one would know that it had formidable offensive strength.
When Zhao Hai and the others arrived at the Roaring Flame Sect’s headquarters, a battle was going on. Although Zhao Hai sealed all of the Roaring Flame Sect’s formations and damaged its guardian formation, the Roaring Flame Sect still had enough strength to defend against the Black Tiger Gang.
The Roaring Flame Sect’s sect leader stood on his personal fire chariot and joined the battle. Tie Zhantian also participated. However, at this time, the two sides were still attacking with their large artifacts.
At this time, Zhao Hai and the others arrived. Seeing the situation of the battlefield, Zhao Hai immediately turned to the transcending tribulation experts and said, “Martial Uncles, please stay on the ship and help me. We’re going to destroy large artifacts of the enemy.”
The transcending tribulation experts were aware of how good Zhao Hai was in controlling large artifacts. The last time he fought against the Wandering Soul Group, Zhao Hai was able to use Zhang Feng’s large artifact to destroy ten ghost-face ships. This matter has already spread throughout the Northern Divergent Province. Now, nobody underestimated Zhao Hai’s ability to control large artifacts.
The transcending tribulation experts nodded. Zhao Hai waved his hand as the Hell King’s Ship rushed towards the battlefield. Naturally, the arrival of the Hell King’s Ship attracted the attention of both sides. Seeing how quickly Zhao Hai and the others arrived, Tie Zhantian couldn’t help but stare. He didn’t expect Zhao Hai to destroy the refining base in a short time. So as soon as he saw Zhao Hai, he immediately thought that something happened in the refining base.
When Tie Zhantian was about to call Zhao Hai over to ask questions, a jade sword message flew in front of him. He received the jade sword message and scanned it with spiritual force. Then he discovered that the message was Zhao Hai’s combat report. Zhao Hai was telling him that the refining base had been completely destroyed.
When he read the report, Tie Zhantian’s first reaction was disbelief. Then he was overjoyed. He believed that Zhao Hai wouldn’t lie to him when it comes to these things. Tie Zhantian calmed down and began to command the large artifacts to attack the fire chariots with all of their strength.
Before long, the battlefield became Zhao Hai’s stage. Zhao Hai drove the Hell King’s Ship to rampage on the battlefield. He was as agile as a fish, but a fish with thorns on its body. As long as he encounters a fire chariot, none of them were left complete. Some were heavily damaged and some were completely destroyed.
Zhao Hai’s performance naturally attracted the attention of the Roaring Flame Sect’s sect leader. The sect leader has heard of Zhao Hai before. It must be said that Zhao Hai was now famous in the Northern Divergent Province. However, only a few people knew of Zhao Hai’s true capability. Most people were only aware of his proficiency in controlling large artifacts. Nobody knew about him having a spatial ability, as well as his other abilities.
With how Zhao Hai was maneuvering his large artifact through the battlefield, it was difficult for the sect leader to not pay attention to him. After noticing Zhao Hai, the sect leader understood that the rumors about Zhao Hai’s ability were true. Zhao Hai controls large artifacts like they were ordinary artifacts. He was a huge asset during wars.
Naturally, the sect leader wouldn’t just watch Zhao Hai continue his rampage. He turned to two transcending tribulations behind him and said, “Send ten transcending tribulation experts. You need to stop Zhao Hai. It would be best if you kill him.” The two transcending tribulation experts nodded. Then they immediately sent the orders down. Before long, ten transcending tribulation experts flew towards Zhao Hai’s Hell King’s Ship.
Zhao Hai also noticed the transcending tribulation experts rushing over. He smiled faintly as he turned to the transcending tribulation experts behind him and said, “Martial Uncles, I’ll have to ask 20 of you to take action and get rid of them as soon as possible. If you can kill some of them, that would be good. It’s better to cut off one finger than injure ten.”
All this time, the transcending tribulation experts were on the Hell King’s Ship watching Zhao Hai using the ship to rampage on the battlefield. They really didn’t understand why Zhao Hai let them stay inside the ship. Were they only here to spectate the fight? At this moment, they were beginning to be dissatisfied with their situation.
However, they changed their thoughts before long. This was because they could see 10 transcending tribulation experts heading towards them. Hearing Zhao Hai, they couldn’t help but feel respect towards him. This was because Zhao Hai thought about this possibility happening.
So when they heard Zhao Hai, they nodded. Zhao Hai didn’t mind their thoughts as he paid attention to the incoming enemies. At the same time, the Hell King’s Ship retreated from the battlefield, clearly intending to get rid of the enemy pursuit.
Seeing the situation, the transcending tribulation experts on the Hell King’s Ship couldn’t help but get excited. This was because they knew that the time for them to take action was coming.
When Tie Zhantian noticed Zhao Hai’s situation, he immediately turned his head and said, “Little Black, send people to support Little Hai.”
The ‘Little Black’ that Tie Zhantian talked to was a man named Mu Hei. He was Tie Zhantian’s junior brother and one of the most trusted people on Tie Zhantian’s side. However, he acted low-key, even to Tie Zhantian. He rarely showed himself in the sect. Not a lot of people knew about him, so he was akin to Tie Zhantian’s shadow. Besides Hu Liangchen and a few people, the rest had no impression of him.
Since the war with the Roaring Flame Sect was a pivotal moment for the Black Tiger Gang, Mu Hei joined Tie Zhantian’s side and acted as an advisor.
When Mu Hei heard Tie Zhantian, he couldn’t help but smile faintly as he said, “Senior Brother, there’s no need to worry. Don’t forget that Little Hai has transcending tribulation experts with him. I think they’re still on Little Hai’s large artifact. I reckon Little Hai is retreating right now in order to deal with the Roaring Flame Sect’s transcending tribulation experts.
Hearing Mu Hei, Tie Zhantian patted his head as he said, “Right, there’s still those fellows. Good, good.”
As Tie Zhantian said that, Zhao Hai had completely left the battlefield with 10 transcending tribulation experts right behind him. Seeing this, the Roaring Flame Sect’s sect leader had a great feeling. Then at this time, 20 people came out of the Hell King’s Ship. These 20 were at the transcending tribulation stage. As soon as they came out, they immediately rushed towards the experts of the Roaring Flame Sect.
Seeing this, the sect leader’s face immediately changed. Then he commanded, “No, we were fooled! Hurry, send people to support them!” Following his order 20 more transcending tribulation experts went towards the Hell King’s Ship. But at this time, the Hell King’s Ship already stopped as the transcending tribulation experts were sent to deal with the pursuers from the Roaring Flame Sect.
When the reinforcements from the Roaring Flame Sect arrived, 20 more transcending tribulation experts came out of the Hell King’s Ship. Although the Black Tiger Gang’s side had the numerical advantage, they wouldn’t be able to finish the battle in a short time. After all, this was a battle between transcending tribulation experts. Moreover, there were no experts who had overwhelming strength on either side. It was inevitable for the battle to be a stalemate.
Zhao Hai already withdrew from the battle. Although he wasn’t afraid of the experts, he didn’t want to expose his strength too much. Because of this, he withdrew from the transcending tribulation experts’ battle and went to the main battlefield to fight.
When Zhao Hai returned, the Roaring Flame Sect’s sect leader couldn’t help but suffer a headache. Although the Roaring Flame Sect was able to defend until now, the defensive line was still in danger. Most importantly, they have yet to find a way to deal with Zhao Hai.
The Roaring Flame Sect was a strong sect, but it was impossible for them to have a lot of transcending tribulation experts. If they did, then they would have already eliminated the Black Tiger Gang.
Ever since Zhao Hai arrived, he has already destroyed five large artifacts. This wasn’t a small number. This was also the reason why the sect leader was having a headache.
Meanwhile, Tie Zhantian had an excited expression on his face. The others from the Black Tiger Gang were also excited. Their morale sharply increased and their attacks became fiercer.
Then at this moment, a cold hum was heard, then an extremely powerful aura shot up from the Roaring Flame Sect’s headquarters and pressed down on the Black Tiger Gang.
Upon feeling this aura, Zhao Hai’s complexion changed. He knew that his guess had become true. The Roaring Flame Sect did indeed have a Supreme Elder on the same level as Hu Shan.
Thinking of this, Zhao Hai immediately used the Hell King’s Ship to retreat. The rest of the Black Tiger Gang’s cultivators also retreated.
On the other hand, when the cultivators of the Roaring Flame Sect felt the imposing aura, their expressions immediately lifted. Then they charged towards the Black Tiger gang. However, the Black Tiger Gang has the upper hand. And since they wanted to retreat, the Roaring Flame Sect couldn’t stop them. Even the transcending tribulation experts stopped their battle and returned to their respective camps.
The people from the Black Tiger Gang didn’t have any good expressions. The pressure that was pressing down on them was very strong. This made them recall Hu Shan and how he dealt with the Wandering Soul Group. At this time, they were afraid that the expert from the Roaring Flame Sect was as strong as Hu Shan.
Soon after, a pillar of fire rose from the Roaring Flame Sect’s headquarters. The flames turned the sky red, it was as if a volcano had erupted. Then the flames turned and headed towards the battlefield, carrying an aura that seeks to destroy anything in its path.
Before long, the fire reached the battlefield. Then the fire turned into a huge ball a hundred meters in diameter. In the middle of the fireball, a person sitting cross-legged could be seen.
The person was an old man with white hair. His face was covered in old spots and his eyes were clouded. He looked on the verge of death. He looked more miserable than Hu Shan.
The old man was very tall. Even while sitting down, his height equaled a normal person. He was also wearing red clothing. Despite all this, he couldn’t hide the fact that he was going senile.
The old man looked at the Black Tiger Gang and coldly snorted as he said, “Black Tiger Gang kids, who gave you the courage to attack our Roaring Flame Sect?”
Although the old man looked like he was going to die at any time, his aura was still very strong. The people from the Black Tiger Gang found it hard to breathe under the pressure. His words caused the heads of Tie Zhantian and the others to ring.
Not long after the old man talked, a roar was heard from the side of the Black Tiger Gang. Along with the roar, an astonishing aura spread out, canceling the pressure sent by the Supreme Elder of the Roaring Flame Sect. This caused the expression of the Roaring Flame Sect’s Supreme Leader to change.
After that, a voice was heard, “Lie Yang, to think that you’re also alive. Hahaha. Good. I allowed you to escape at that time. I see that you ran here.” As the voice fell, 12 huge metallic beasts appeared and charged towards the Roaring Flame Sect’s Supreme Elder.
The 12 metallic beasts were naturally Zhao Hai’s metal beasts. They were currently being controlled by Hu Shan.
