Chapter 1773 – Opportunity
What concept was 100 million? Even the population of the Black Tiger Gang didn’t reach 100 million. And Zhao Hai killed this amount of people? This was too scary to think about.
After some time, Tie Zhantian took a deep breath. Then he looked at Zhao Hai and said, “I didn’t expect you to be a butcher. Alright, let’s not talk about what happened in the lower realms. You said you have special beasts? What are they?” Zhao Hai smiled faintly and then took out a bug. Looking at the bug, Tie Zhantian and the others frowned. They haven’t seen this beast before.
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “I managed to subdue these beasts in the lower realm. They’re very suitable for digging tunnels. Most importantly, their saliva can block spiritual force.” After he said that, Zhao Hai waved his hand and then the bug dug out a clump of earth and then covered it with saliva. Before long, the clump of earth became hard. Then Zhao Hai handed the clump of earth to Tie Zhantian.
Tie Zhantian took the hardened clump of earth. He used his spiritual force to scan it. Then he nodded and said, “It can indeed block spiritual force. It seems like you have quite some special beasts in your hands.” Zhao Hai just smiled and didn’t answer. Tie Zhantian didn’t mind it. Then he threw the clump of earth away before turning to the others and saying, “Let’s talk about what to do next.”
Naturally, Tie Zhantian didn’t ask about the strength of the base. He decided to ignore Zhao Hai’s capabilities.
Hu Liangchen and the others had now calmed themselves down. They were truly shocked at the base that Zhao Hai built. But at the same time, it gave them confidence. Zhao Hai already told them the details of the base. It was much more powerful than they imagined.
Most importantly, the base’s power source was the Inferno Valley. As long as the Inferno Valley keeps burning, the base wouldn’t lack power. Even if someone agitates the magma like what Zhao Hai did before, it would be useless. After all, Zhao Hai caused the previous agitation, so he knew how to deal with it.
Hu Liangchen and the others now believed that the underground base would be able to defend against whatever enemies were thrown at them.
Hu Liangchen pondered for a moment before he said, “The five sects are more likely incited by the Myriad Demons Sect to attack us. This may also be a test by the Myriad Demons Sect. They still don’t know how hard they need to suppress us. Although the five sects wouldn’t go at us with all their strength, their alliance would still be hard to deal with. I think we should move everyone to the base first. Then we’ll deal with the enemies slowly.”
Tie Zhantian nodded and said, “It’s a must that we’ll move to the base. However ,we cannot expose the fighting strength of the base. I think we should shift the majority of the sect but we would remain to defend. If we can still hold on, then we won’t enter the base.”
Hu Liangchen immediately understood what Tie Zhantian meant. He replied, “Gang Leader, you’re planning to keep the base a secret to deal with the Myriad Demons Sect?”
Tie Zhantian nodded. At this time, Zhao Hai suddenly said, “Gang Leader, as long as we hold on for a year, we would no longer need to worry about the Myriad Demons Sect.”
Tie Zhantian looked at Zhao Hai in confusion. Zhao Hai elaborated, “Gang Leader, did you forget why we constructed the base? I just went to the Heavenly Demon Realm to see how they’re doing. I also left some Undead there to collect information. The Heavenly Demon Realm was now preparing with all their strength. In a year, they will be ready. When the Heavenly Demons invade the Great World of Cultivation, the Myriad Demons Sect would have no time to deal with us.”
Tie Zhantian stood up as soon as he heard this. Then he asked, “Little Hai, are you telling the truth? The Heavenly Demons are going to invade in a year?”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “I’m quite sure. They were just making their last preparations last year. They should have been preparing for this for a very long time.”
Tie Zhantian walked back and forth on the ground. Then he looked at Zhao Hai and said, “This information is too important. We need to inform the entire Great World of Cultivation. Otherwise, once the Heavenly Demons invade, all of us would be in trouble.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “We should, but the super sects wouldn’t believe us if we tell them. What if we spread the news as a rumor? At least it would attract some attention and not be ignored.” Tie Zhantian thought for a while before he nodded and said, “It seems like that’s the only way to go. But we still need to deal with the five sects.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “This period will be an opportunity for us. The nine super sects would bear the brunt of the Heavenly Demon Realm’s attack. After the war, the powers of the Great World of Cultivation will be reshuffled. As long as our losses aren’t too great, there will be a place for us among the super sects in the realm. As for the five sects, I think we should take the initiative and attack. We’ll hit them first and cripple their strength. Then if they attack, we’ll defend as much as possible. If we can’t hold on, then we’ll retreat to the base. Then once we manage to resist, we’ll cause trouble to them.”
Tie Zhantian nodded. Then he turned to Hu Liangchen and said, “Liangchen, what do you think?”
Hu Liangchen nodded and said, “It makes sense. We’ll choose one of the five sects and cripple them. Then we’ll slowly deal with the other sects. As long as our headquarters remain standing, their plan would be considered a failure.”
Tie Zhantian gave a nod, “Alright, then let’s choose who to attack first.”
Everyone looked at each other before speaking at the same time, “The Wandering Soul Group!”
Tie Zhantian has long known that this would be the answer. He laughed and said, “Good, then we’ll attack the Wandering Soul Group. However, this time, we’ll leave attacking them to Little Feng and Little Hai. We old fogies will remain to guard the sect. What do you think? Are you confident?”
Zhang Feng and Zhao Hai stood up at the same time as they cupped their fists and said, “Yes, Gang Leader!”
Tie Zhantian waved his hand and said, “Alright, it’s settled. After you go back, make your preparations. Be careful of the Wandering Soul Group. Those fellows are difficult to deal with. They may have Immortal Experts among them.”
Zhao Hai replied, “Gang Leader doesn’t have to worry. Supreme Elder Hu Shan gave me a powerful artifact back then. But since I’m still at the nascent soul stage at that time, I was unable to use it. Now that I have crossed my tribulation, I can now use that weapon. With that artifact in hand, there’s no need for us to worry about Immortal Experts.”
Tie Zhantian was stunned for a moment. Then he asked, “Are you sure?” Zhao Hai smiled faintly. Then he flipped his hand and took out the vermillion bird stamp. However, he didn’t take Firegod City out. He just let Tie Zhantian look at the stamp, he didn’t say what its abilities were.
Tie Zhantian looked at the vermillion bird stamp in Zhao Hai’s hand. He didn’t have any plans towards it. He just nodded and said, “The Supreme Elder gave you this weapon, this means that he wants you to protect the sect.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Gang Leader can rest assured, I will use it well.”
Tie Zhantian nodded, then he turned his head to Hu Liangchen and said, “Liangchen, we’ll be heading back immediately. All of the sect’s important materials will be sent to the base. The cultivation methods are also to be transported. At the same time, send our most loyal disciples over. The refiners and pill-makers will be sent as well. Have loyal serving disciples come to cultivate the medicinal fields. We’ll use our large artifacts to do all of this. We need to complete this as soon as possible.”
Hu Liangchen nodded. Then Tie Zhantian turned to Zhang Feng and Zhao Hai and said, “Little Feng, Little Hai, after you head out, immediately take action. If you can’t kill the people of the Wandering Soul Group, it’s enough if you cripple them.”
Zhao Hai and Zhang Feng nodded. After that, Tie Zhantian ordered everyone to leave and begin their respective tasks. Before long, they used the transmission formation to return to the underground base. Then large artifacts began flying out of the base and back to the sect’s headquarters. As for Zhao Hai and Zhang Feng, they boarded the treasure ship.
When the two entered the ship, they went to Zhang Feng’s room and sat down. Then Zhang Feng turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Little Hai, how do you think we should proceed?” Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “There’s no need to make it complicated. Let’s just take some experts as well as some large artifacts. I can make the Undead pilot our large artifacts. If an Immortal Expert appears, then I will deal with them. It’s better if we do it this way. We’ll just run them over using overwhelming strength.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Zhang Feng thought about it for a moment before he laughed and said, “Alright, then it’s settled. Leave the experts to me while you take care of the large artifacts.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “All of the large artifacts in the base are ready for combat. But before we use them, we’ll need to ask permission from the Gang Leader.” Zhang Feng nodded. Then the two separated to make their preparations. Zhao Hai would prepare the large artifacts while Zhang Feng would get the manpower.
