Chapter 1874 – The Main Attack Begins
The Hell King’s Ship was currently in tatters and looked completely immobile. Naturally, this was only a facade. If Zhao Hai wanted to, the Hell King’s Ship would be restored in a matter of seconds. But instead of doing so, Zhao Hai received the Hell King’s Ship and then teleported back to the elders of the Heaven Sect. Then he waved his hand and said, “Prepare to charge. Remember, attack with all of your strength. Don’t make any unnecessary movements with your large artifacts. Forget everything and just charge forward. Begin!”
The elders of the Heaven Sect nodded and began to accelerate forward. Zhao Hai already explained the plan to these elders. They were to keep flying forward until they reached right outside the Heavenly Demon Army. Only then would they show their flying swords and then charge with no intention of stopping.
Seeing the elders of the Heaven Sect flying forward, Zhao Hai took out Jian Wuya’s communication token and then said, “Luo Wei and the other elders have set off. Everyone, get ready. After Luo Wei and the others come in contact with the enemy, attack immediately. Zhao Hai!”
Zhao Hai appended his name at the end of his message. Since the receiving end of the tokens only showed written characters, Zhao Hai needs to add his own name. Otherwise, it would be difficult to know who sent the message.
As soon as they saw the message, Jian Wuya and the others paused. Then they understood what Zhao Hai plans to do. Their moods immediately lifted. They didn’t think that Zhao Hai would use this method to incapacitate the Heavenly Demon Army.
However, Jian Wuya and the others didn’t immediately mobilize their troops. Only once Luo Wei and the others got in contact with the enemy would they begin to move.
The distance between the two armies wasn’t very far. Before long, Luo Wei and the other elders were close to the Heavenly Demon Army. At this time, the Heavenly Demon Army were slowly pressing towards the Great Realm of Cultivation’s army. They were also intending to fight a decisive battle. Unfortunately, they were unaware of Zhao Hai’s follow-up.
Seeing that they were at a set distance from the Heavenly Demons, Luo Wei immediately shouted, “Begin!” After he said that, he took out the sword on his back and then enlarged it. All of a sudden 500 large artifacts appeared and charged towards the Heavenly Demon Army.
When the Heavenly Demons discovered Luo Wei and the others, they were immediately in panic. After all, a single person wasn’t a match against a large artifact. If they clashed, the large artifacts would gain the upper hand.
The leader of the Heavenly Demon Army also noticed this and his complexion couldn’t help but change. Then he immediately ordered, “Quick, immortal experts! Block the bastards from the Heaven Sect!”
With this order, the immortal Heavenly Demons immediately made a move. However, before they could reach Luo Wei and the others, they were blocked by Hu Wei and his immortal Undead army.
Zhao Hai already expected the Heavenly Demons to send their immortal experts to deal with Luo Wei and the others. Once Luo Wei and the others use their flying swords, their offensive strength would rapidly increase. However, they wouldn’t be able to last long against the enemy. Although transcending tribulation experts couldn’t stop large artifacts, immortal experts could.
So when Luo Wei and the others began their attack, Zhao Hai also released Hu Wei and his army to protect them. This way, the charge of the Heaven Sect elders wouldn’t be stopped. This would allow the arrow formation to display its maximum strength.
By this point, Luo Wei and the others already collided with the Heavenly Demon Army. The Heavenly Demon Army weren’t completely made up of transcending tribulation experts and nascent soul experts. Most of the Heavenly Demons in the army were in fact at the core formation stage. With such a composition, the Heavenly Demon Army were naturally unable to stop the charge of the Heaven Sect’s large artifacts.
Like a hot knife through butter, Luo Wei and the others cut through the Heavenly Demon Army. Moreover, the more they plunged into the enemy formation, the less resistance they met.
At this time, Jian Wuya and the others also made their moves. The Great Realm of Cultivation’s army rushed over and used the gap opened by the Heaven Sect’s elders. As more troops entered the gap, the wider it became. From above, the Heavenly Demon Army looked like a torn piece of cloth.
The Heavenly Demons were flustered. They failed to anticipate this outcome. Before they knew it, their formation had been torn through.
The balance of the battle began to tilt towards the Great Realm of Cultivation. The leader of the Heavenly Demon Army began to turn pale as he looked at the battlefield. The leader turned to Mo Like and ordered, “Mo Like, go and take command of the army to the left. I’ll take charge on the right. We need to retreat for a moment and stabilize the army. Then we’ll hit them with a two-pronged attack.
Mo Like has no other choice but to follow the order. This was the only way forward for the Heavenly Demons. Fortunately, this was a battle where millions of troops were involved. Besides the region around the gap, the other parts of the army weren’t attacked. They should be able to stabilize the army’s situation.
The changes in the Heavenly Demon Army was crucial. Lizzy and the others, who had been paying attention to the situation of the battlefield, immediately discovered what the Heavenly Demons were doing and reported to Zhao Hai.
Hearing this, Zhao Hai paused for a moment and then he said, “The Heavenly Demons Army decided to split into two armies? And they’re preparing to converge on us?”
Lizzy nodded, “Right. They just began changing their formation.”
Zhao Hai thought for a moment and said, “Send the Undead army out. Constrain one side of the Heavenly Demon Army. The other side will be dealt with by Jian Wuya and the others.”
After he said that, Zhao Hai took out the communication token and then said, “The Heavenly Demons army has split into two. I’ll deal with the left army while you take on the right. You need to deal with them as soon as possible. Zhao Hai.” Then Zhao Hai waved his hand and took out a large number of Undead. Zhao Hai wasn’t facing the army commanded by Mo Like. Instead, he was against the army of the Heavenly Demon Army leader.
Zhao Hai was positioned just opposite of the Heavenly Demon Army leader. This meant that Zhao Hai was on the left side relative to the Great Realm of Cultivation Army while the Heavenly Demon Army Leader was on the right side relative to the Heavenly Demon Army.
After reading Zhao Hai’s message, Jian Wuya and the others began to pay attention to the state of the battlefield. And just like Zhao Hai said, the Heavenly Demons have split into two armies. Moreover, they were beginning to stabilize both armies.
Jian Wuya and the others couldn’t help but sigh at Zhao Hai’s sensitivity towards the changes of the battlefield. But they were also beginning to feel afraid. If Zhao Hai has such a strong grasp of the battlefield, what would happen if he becomes their enemy? Thinking of this, Jian Wuya and the others became even more determined. They needed to remove Zhao Hai as soon as possible.
However, this was merely a thought. They still followed Zhao Hai’s instructions and attacked the right army of the Heavenly Demons. Zhao Hai, on the other hand, attacked the left army. Zhao Hai also ordered Luo Wei and the others to take a rest. Then after resting, they were tasked to help Jian Wuya and the others.
Luo Wei and the others had just cut through the Heavenly Demon Army. Although they were happy with their achievement, they were also completely drained of energy. But now that the Heavenly Demon Army has been split in two, their mission was complete.
After receiving Zhao Hai’s order, Luo Wei and the others finally relaxed. At the same time, they shrank their flying swords and returned to the rear of the army. Then they began taking out pills to restore their spiritual qi.
Meanwhile, opposite Zhao Hai, the Heavenly Demon Army leader suddenly noticed a sea of Undead appearing right in front of him.
Upon spotting the Undead, the Heavenly Demon Army leader immediately knew that he was against Zhao Hai. Thinking of this, the eyes of the army leader turned red with rage. While glaring at the Undead, he shouted, “Attack. Tear the Undead to shreds! I must catch Zhao Hai and pull out his soul. He needs to suffer under demon fire for an eternity!”
With this order, the Heavenly Demons began charging towards Zhao Hai’s Undead army. A lot of Heavenly Demons shared the emotions of their army leader. They similarly hated Zhao Hai. If it weren’t for Zhao Hai, a lot of their plans would have succeeded.
This wasn’t the first time that the Heavenly Demons fought against Zhao Hai’s Undead Army. Therefore, they knew that the Undead weren’t very strong. Most of the Undead relied on rifles and cannons for offense. As long as the army reached the Undead, the rifles and cannons would no longer be effective.
Because of this thought, the Heavenly Demons rushed with all of their strength. However, they were wrong this time. The Undead that Zhao Hai sent out were quite powerful. Zhao Hai expected that the Heavenly Demons would want to fight the Undead in close-combat.
Under the command of Lizzy and the others, the Undead formed a cube formation and welcomed the Heavenly Demon Army. Zhao Hai also returned to the rear of the Freedom Alliance’s army.
It didn’t take long before the Heavenly Demon Army and the Undead Army came in contact. Almost immediately, the Heavenly Demons discovered that the Undead army was different this time. Although the Undead didn’t use dao avatars, they were still quite powerful. Moreover, the cooperation between each Undead has reached perfection. It was something that the Heavenly Demons couldn’t match.
Most importantly, the dynamic changes of the Undead Army caused the Heavenly Demons to suffer a loss. The formation of the Undead changed rapidly. They can simultaneously attack, retreat, and defend. All of this were done in a fluid manner. The Heavenly Demons found themselves similar to moths caught in a spider web. No matter how much they struggled, it was no use. The more they moved, the more entangled in the web they would be.
The Heavenly Demon Army leader’s complexion paled. He never thought that Zhao Hai’s Undead would be this strong. Looking at the fluctuating formations of the Undead, the Heavenly Demon Army leader knew that Zhao Hai was holding back against them in the past. Otherwise, they would have long since been eliminated.
Although he was angry, the Heavenly Demon Army leader began to feel powerless and then he began feeling afraid. He has no other choice but to admit that their invasion has failed. And they were defeated by a single person.
Unwilling. The Heavenly Demon Army leader was unwilling. The invasion went very smoothly in the beginning. They have meticulously planned against the nine super sects. However, they were still defeated. He was completely unresigned.
But even if he was unwilling, the reality was right in front of him. Zhao Hai’s Undead army was more numerous and held great strength. Additionally, the ever-changing formation of the Undead has plunged the Heavenly Demon army into despair. In just a few hours into the battle, the Heavenly Demons already lost millions. More importantly, the Undead were beginning to surround the Heavenly Demon Army.
The Heavenly Demon Army leader knew that this couldn’t continue. If they were going to be defeated in the end, then he needs to preserve the strength of the Heavenly Demon Race. Otherwise, even if they escaped to the Heavenly Demon Realm, they wouldn’t be able to repel the pursuit of the Great Realm of Cultivation. If the Heavenly Demons can tear the realm barrier and invade, why couldn’t the cultivators do the same?
The only reason the Great Realm of Cultivation didn’t do so was because there were numerous conflicts among the sects. Therefore, they didn’t have the time to invade the Heavenly Demon Realm. If the Heavenly Demons lost a lot of people this time, then they would be open to invasion by the cultivators. When the time comes, the Heavenly Demon Race would face the danger of extermination.
Thinking of this, the Heavenly Demon Army commander stood up. Then he said, “Order Mo Like to get close to us as soon as possible. At the same time, order him to send an army to guard the spatial passage. Once the two armies converge, we’ll immediately go back to the Heavenly Demon Realm.”
Naturally, there was someone beside him to pass the other. However, the person who was going to pass the order was full of grief and indignation. He looked at the Heavenly Demon Army Leader and said, “Army Leader, we haven’t lost yet. We will win.”
The Army Leader repeated, “Send the order. There’s no more meaning to this battle. If we lose too much, the cultivators won’t let us off. And don’t forget, Zhao Hai is a spatial ability user. He can go to the Heavenly Demon Realm anytime. We have thrown all of our available troops here. Who would stop him if he decides to attack? Do you want to become a member of Zhao Hai’s Undead army? So send the order, we’re retreating!”
