Chapter 1927 – Entering The Soaring Dragon Realm
The white light of the transmission formation flickered before a group of 50 people appeared. These 50 people were all in the immortal stage. Three people stood in front of the group. Although the others stood at the back, there was no dissatisfaction on their faces. They were even in awe with the person in front who was wearing black cultivator robes.
At this time, a nearby transmission formation also flickered and another group of people appeared. The group was made out of 40 immortal experts.
Zhao Hai glanced at the transmission formation next to him. He knew that these people were from the nine super sects. Meanwhile, the people behind him were the experts of the Freedom Alliance. The Great Realm of Cultivation sent nearly a hundred people to the Soaring Dragon Realm, which was a huge move.
The cultivators from the other transmission formation looked at Zhao Hai and the others and then coldly snorted before leaving.
Looking at the people from the nine super sects, Zhao Hai smiled faintly and led the experts of the Freedom Alliance out of the transmission formation. As soon as the two left the transmission formation, a group of immortal experts walked up to them. Then when they saw Zhao Hai, an excited expression appeared on their faces.
Two of them didn’t wait for the others to speak, they immediately walked up to Zhao Hai and said, “Army Commander, you’re finally here!”
The words ‘Army Commander’ caused the others to be shocked. Zhao Hai smiled at the two as he said, “Wang Feng, Zhang Tao, it’s you two. I didn’t expect you to cultivate this quickly. It seems like this Army Commander has been lagging behind.”
As soon as they heard Zhao Hai calling their names, Wang Feng and Zhang Tao were immediately excited. Wang Feng smiled faintly and said, “Not really lagging behind. Army Commander, it’s good that you’re here. By the way, the leader of the Great Realm of Cultivation’s team is Li Mu. If he knew that you’re here, he would be very happy.”
Zhao Hai laughed and said, “That’s good. Let’s go. Lead me to see Li Mu.” Wang Feng immediately complied.
At this moment, an immortal expert that Zhao Hai didn’t know walked over. He cupped his fist to Zhao Hai and said, “Is Mister named Zhao Hai?”
Zhao Hai looked at the person and then gave him a smile as he replied, “I am Zhao Hai. Mister is?”
Hearing Zhao Hai’s reply, the person’s expression became more respectful. He cupped his fist once more as he introduced himself, “I’m Yuan Ba from the Ten Thousand Beasts Sect. I didn’t expect that I would be fortunate enough to meet Mister.”
Zhao Hai also cupped his fist as he said, “Mister Yuan Ba is too polite.” Then he turned around and walked to the Great Realm of Cultivation’s camp.
The Great Realm of Cultivation’s camp was still the same mountain valley that Tie Zhantian and the others first appeared in. However, not all of the Great Realm of Cultivation’s people were in the valley. Three hundred cultivators have gone to the city to do tasks. The Great Realm of Cultivation was now most active in Wulong City which was a medium-sized city in the Soaring Dragon Realm.
The person currently in charge of the camp was Li Mu. Li Mu was also a member of the alliance army. He was one of the first ones to break through to the immortal realm among those in the army. Additionally, he’s from the Black Tiger Gang. Tie Zhantian also passed the summoning token to him.
Although the nine super sects and the Freedom Alliance were enemies, they get along very peacefully in the Soaring Dragon Realm. This was because both sides knew that they wouldn’t reach far in the Soaring Dragon Realm if they didn’t work with each other. If they don’t unite, they would soon be swallowed up by the other factions.
Zhao Hai walked with Wang Feng and Zhang Tao. Meanwhile, the others intentionally fell behind. These people didn’t know Zhao Hai before, but after hearing who he was, none of them dared to disrespect him. Although Zhao Hai hasn’t appeared in the Great Realm of Cultivation for decades, his legends have never been forgotten. There were many among those present who grew up listening to Zhao Hai’s tales. Naturally, they were respectful towards Zhao Hai.
At this time, Li Mu also received the news. He quickly went towards Zhao Hai’s location. Seeing Zhao Hai coming over, Li Mu immediately bowed as he said, “I have seen the Army Commander. I have seen the Gang Leader. I have seen the Vice Commander.” Naturally, he also greeted Zhang Feng and Li Kuangge.
Zhang Feng and Li Kuangge also returned Li Mu’s greeting. Zhao Hai patted Li Mu’s shoulder as he said, “You’re doing very well. You didn’t disappoint me. Hahaha.”
Hearing Zhao Hai’s praise, Li Mu felt his bones becoming a few grams lighter. He smiled and said, “It’s all thanks to my comrades in the army as well as the training of the sect.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “You’ve also worked hard. Otherwise, it would be impossible for you to enter the Soaring Dragon Realm.”
As Zhao Hai said that, Li Mu’s expression suddenly changed. He turned his hand and took out a disc. Projected on the top of the disc was the figure of a person. One could see the anxious expression on their face as they reported, “Captain Li, area 358 is currently being besieged by a large quantity of beasts. We need reinforcements immediately—-”
Then the communication suddenly cut off. Li Mu’s expression changed. Then he turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Army Commander, take a rest first. I’ll lead the reinforcements to help them.”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “It’s fine. We can go together.”
Li Mu nodded and immediately went to gather people. Before long, a whole team was assembled. Li Mu left about 100 people to guard the camp. Most of the newcomers stayed behind to acclimatize with the surroundings. Then a white light flashed around Li Mu. The scope of the light was quite large, covering everyone around him. When the white light disappeared, the group disappeared from the camp.
A few newcomers were shocked when Li Mu disappeared. They exclaimed, “What just happened? There’s no transmission formation. How did they disappear?”
A cultivator who had been in the Soaring Dragon Realm for a while replied, “That’s a portable transmission formation. It’s a product of the True Spirit Realm. It’s very useful in the Soaring Dragon Realm but not in the Great Realm of Cultivation. The portable transmission formations are very hungry for spiritual force from the user and the surroundings. It’s also very expensive. We have to work for a long time to buy some. We’ll only use them in times of crisis. Alright, enough about that. Let me lead all of you to your residences.”
Zhao Hai was already aware of this transmission formation. Lin Ling used this in front of him before. Later on, as Zhao Hai looked into the Soaring Dragon Realm, he became aware of the portable transmission formation’s existence.
It must be said that the portable transmission formations were really good. It can fit on the palm of one’s hand. Most importantly, it can record coordinates. The portable transmission formation can memorize places that the user has been to. The user can also set the coordinates themselves. Then the user only needs to activate the transmission formation to teleport. It was very convenient.
However, the portable transmission formations have high requirements for spiritual qi. Not only does it require spiritual qi from its user, it also needs a high density of spiritual qi from the surroundings. The user must be at least at the immortal stage and the surroundings must be at the same level as the Soaring Dragon Realm or better. Otherwise, the portable transmission formation wouldn’t activate.
After a flash of white light, Zhao Hai and the others appeared inside a jungle. The moment they appeared, they immediately heard the intermittent roars of beasts and the sound of fighting. Violent spiritual fluctuations were felt all around. One could see that both sides of the battle have very formidable strength.
Li Mu led Zhao Hai and the others to a certain direction. While flying, Li Mu turned to Zhao Hai and said, “Army Commander, you have to be careful. The beasts of the Soaring Dragon Realm are very formidable. All of them are at the immortal stage.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Rest assured, I’ll be fine. Let’s continue.” The others were also cautious. It has been some time since they have been in the Soaring Dragon Realm. All of them were aware of its dangers. They shouldn’t underestimate anything here. Even a small insect might contain a sting that could end your life.
Since Tie Zhantian entered the Soaring Dragon Realm, Zhao Hai has been observing everything they came up against. It can be said that Zhao Hai understood the Soaring Dragon Realm better than Li Mu and the others.
After a while, the group saw people who were being besieged. A team of 100 were being attacked by a group of beasts. These beasts looked like small swallows. They have black and white feathers and pointed beaks along with scissor-like tails. Although small, the offensive strength of the swallows was terrifying. They were extremely fast as well. Even shields of immortal experts were broken under multiple attacks.
When the swallows attack, their bodies would turn into a pointed cone, like a bullet fired from a gun. If someone was hit by it, they would no doubt die or be severely injured. Even if they block with their defensive artifacts, the artifacts would be damaged.
Zhao Hai recognized this swallow. In the Soaring Dragon Realm, they’re called Steel Beaked Swallows. These swallows were among the most common beasts in the Soaring Dragon realm. They weren’t considered powerful beasts. However, a flock of them contained a lot of swallows, ranging from hundreds to tens of thousands. Even powerful beasts would steer away from the path of a flock of steel beaked swallows. It was said that the beaks of these swallows would kill tens of thousands of people in the Soaring Dragon Realm every year. One could see how formidable they are.
