Bringing The Farm To Live In Another World - Chapter 1267
Chapter 1267 – Breaking the Formation
Zhao Hai was still calmly standing in place. At this point, he was using 1000-layer formations to defend. It was also at this time that the people from the Machine Field and the Cultivation Realm discovered how formidable he was.
People from the Cultivation Realm were also very familiar with the Machine Field’s Magic Theory. After all, this method wasn’t a secret in the World of Cultivation. Additionally, computers were used to varying degrees in other realms. It can be said that Magic Theory can be cultivated by anyone in the World of Cultivation.
It was precisely because of their understanding of Magic Theory that n.o.body in the World of Cultivation practiced it. Although magic formations could be used as spells and were more powerful, the energy consumption needed to operate it was greater than the formations of the Cultivation Realm. Although spells were also used in the Cultivation Realm, it wasn’t the main method of attack. Compared to magic artifacts, it still falls short.
Spells weren’t valued in the Cultivation Realm, let alone Magic Theory. The main reason why the Cultivation Realm had some understanding about Magic Theory was because this would allow them to suppress the Machine Field more effectively.
Since the energy consumption of Magic Theory was very big, those in the Machine Field who could release 1000-layer formations were among the realm’s top experts. These people wouldn’t suffer a loss when fighting against a Core Formation Expert from the Cultivation Realm.
However, even those who can use 1000-layer formations in the Machine Field wouldn’t use these formations for a long time. The energy consumption was just too big, they wouldn’t dare consume all of their energy.
But now, Zhao Hai can actually use 1000-layer formations with ease. He wasn’t even using any items, yet he can cast them instantaneously. This caused everyone in the Cultivation Realm to be startled.
Yao Guang was also observing Zhao Hai. Like others, he has some understanding about the Machine Field’s Magic Theory. And since he understood the system, he knew that Zhao Hai was formidable. But Yao Guang believes that Zhao Hai wasn’t going at full power. At the very least, he hasn’t used his weapon. Yao Guang doesn’t believe that Zhao Hai’s weapon was useless. He heard that Zhao Hai was both a Mage and a Warrior. Moreover, his weapon was a silver-white staff. Now, Zhao Hai doesn’t have his staff with him, this meant that he wasn’t at his full power.
Although Yao Guang doesn’t know why Zhao Hai was holding back, he doesn’t have time to think about it too much. Yao Guang immediately used his secret art to control the entire great formation.
All Cultivators have some understanding about formations, but only some know how to arrange them. And even if they understood how to arrange a formation, that doesn’t mean they understood how to operate it.
Operating a formation is a very technical task, but most Cultivators don’t necessarily have to learn it. It’s just like in the Machine Field. People in the Machine Field couldn’t live without magic formations, but they don’t necessarily know how to use it.
As soon as Yao Guang used his secret art, the entire great formation lit up. The formation is now under Yao Guang’s control. To be honest, controlling such a huge formation wasn’t easy. But if he doesn’t control it, then Yao Guang wouldn’t be able to defeat Zhao Hai.
Although Zhao Hai was still trapped in the formation, Yao Guang was sure that if he didn’t control it, then it would only be a matter of time before Zhao Hai would break out.
Once he was able to control the entire formation, Yao Guang was relieved. He now felt that he had the strength to defeat Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai was still calmly standing inside the formation, he was still able to see Yao Guang’s movements through the s.p.a.ce. Not only was he not afraid, he was even secretly happy. He really wanted to see how powerful this formation was.
As soon as Yao Guang controlled the formation, Zhao Hai immediately felt the sharp increase of pressure around him. The eight golden dragons had also become more solid and their shapes becoming more vivid. At the same time, their offensive strength increased. Each golden dragon could now attack using spells, not only their claws and breath. These spells were very strong, at about the same level as 500-layer formations
Zhao Hai’s eyes slightly shrank. Now that the formation has been unleashed, Core Formation Experts trapped within it would certainly have a very bad time. Yao Guang was showing the might of this entire formation.
However, Zhao Hai believes that the formation was far from displaying it’s true power. Since the formation was controlled by a Foundation Establishment expert, it’s impossible for it to fully function. If Yao Guang was stronger, then the formation’s pressure would be greater. When that time comes, then even Nascent Soul Experts wouldn’t be able to find a way out.
Now that he saw the formation’s capability, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but feel satisfied. He knew that he would definitely build up his own influence in the future. And since he couldn’t let others know about the s.p.a.ce, then he would need a base. And since it’s a base, it would need protection. In the Cultivation Realm, each major sect has a wide-scale defensive formation. These formations were the most powerful defensive means of a sect. It can be said that a sect’s power was directly related to the quality of their wide-scale defensive formation.
If one wanted to attack a sect, then they would first need to deal with the sect’s defensive formation. If you can’t destroy the formation, then you can’t do anything. It was at this aspect that the Machine Field wasn’t doing very well. Although the power of magic formations wasn’t small, it was still much worse than those sect-protecting formations of the Cultivation Realm.
And in the Cultivation Realm, blueprints of sect-protecting formations are strictly kept secret. Even Sect Disciples would be treated as traitors if they were caught sniffing around about it.
Since Zhao Hai doesn’t have any means to collect this information, he can only study and a.n.a.lyze formations with this crude method. Although he really wanted to kill Yao Guang now and turn him into an Undead to interrogate him, Zhao Hai knew that he couldn’t do that. At this point, the Cultivation Realm’s eyes were on him. If he killed Yao Guang, then the Cultivators might forgo all courtesies and tear him up. When that time comes, not to say Core Formation Experts and Nascent Soul Experts, even stronger Cultivators might deal with him.
After weighing the advantages and disadvantages, Zhao Hai decided not to kill Yao Gang. He cannot touch the Cultivation Realm’s bottom line.
Seeing that it was time and that Cai’er had recorded everything that could be recorded, Zhao Hai decided to begin. He waved his hand as Liquid Silver appeared.
When Yao Guang saw Zhao Hai taking his staff out, he couldn’t help but get anxious. He immediately operated the formation to go at full power. He was preparing to use the most powerful attack for Zhao Hai.
But at this moment, Yao Guang suddenly felt that something was wrong. His expression changed as he took out a pill and then threw it into his mouth. As the pill’s effects began to manifest, energy filled up Yao Guang’s body, supplementing the lost energy.
At this moment, Zhao Hai waved his staff as a dense number of magic formations appeared next to him. Although the formation wasn’t large, its sheer number of layers caused people’s scalp to numb.
Zhao Hai waved his staff as the formation burst out. A flash of light flickered causing everyone to unconsciously close their eyes. Once they opened their eyes, everyone saw that Zhao Hai was already standing in front of Yao Guang, his staff on Yao Guang’s throat. All of the formations in the arena were destroyed, nothing was left.
Everyone was greatly startled. They didn’t expect the 10,000-layer formation that Zhao Hai used to have this much destructive power.
Yes, everyone knew that Zhao Hai used a formation that had 10,000 layers. However, they didn’t expect the power of this formation to be this great.
Actually, the formation that Zhao Hai used wasn’t that powerful. The formation flags and disks were already destroyed by the silver needles. The 10,000-layer formation was released just to make people close their eyes.
Yao Guang also recovered at this time. He looked at Zhao Hai who had his staff pointed at his throat. Yao Guang smiled faintly and said, “Mister Zhao Hai is truly strong. I admit defeat.”
Zhao Hai received his magic staff, then he smiled faintly at Yao Guang and said, “Your formation is also very strong. Thanks for letting me win.” Then his body flashed as he returned to his seat.
It was only after Zhao Hai returned to his seat that the people spectating the arena responded. The spectator seats are in an uproar. They didn’t expect the situation to be overturned this quickly. One moment, people thought that Yao Guang was about to win. Then in the next, Zhao Hao broke the formation and Yao Guang admitted defeat.
Everyone in the Cultivation Realm couldn’t help but stare at the arena. They were startled. They didn’t expect Yao Guang to lose. Zhao Hai used one move to break the formation that Yao Guang painfully arranged. What made them surprised even more was the strength of the 10,000-layer formation that Zhao Hai released.
After some time, the disturbance stopped. Then Zhao Hai suddenly felt cold gazes going straight towards him. However, he didn’t care and just sat there smiling. At this time, Ma Rulong turned to Zhao Hai and whispered, “Little Hai, did you allow Yao Guang to finish his formation?”
Zhao Hai nodded, then he smiled faintly and said, “I want to see how powerful his formation is. To be honest, the formation is very strong. If he was stronger, then he would be able to create a much stronger effect and I wouldn’t have been able to easily break out. It seems like the Cultivation Realm’s formations are indeed formidable.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Ma Rulong couldn’t help but bitterly smile as he said, “Your courage is too big. Only you would dare do that. If it was anyone else, then they would no doubt be killed. Don’t do something like this anymore. It’s too dangerous. You’re the Machine Field’s hope after all.”
Zhao Hai smiled and nodded. At this time, the next round of partic.i.p.ants were being drawn. However, everyone’s attention was still fixed on Zhao Hai!
Chapter 1268 – Zhongli Qiang
Besides those fighting Tu Mietan and Zhao Hai, the other Cultivators were basically just fighting amongst themselves. And at most, these fights would be spars. Because of this, n.o.body cared about the next round of combatants and they just gave more attention towards Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai’s performance was without a doubt outstanding. Everyone could see the formation that Yao Guang arranged. Even if they weren’t Formation Masters, they knew that being trapped in such a formation was just courting death.
Because of this, although the Cultivators didn’t know the subtleties of Yao Guang’s formation, its power was evident just by looking at it. Zhao Hai even had to use 1000-layer formations to combat the attacks made by the eight gold dragons. These 1000-layer formations were known to be equal to attacks made by Core Formation Experts. One could see from this point how strong Yao Guang’s formation was.
However, even with how strong the formation was, Zhao Hai only used one move to destroy it. How much strength does he have? Cultivators began to discover that they needed to reevaluate how they see Zhao Hai’s strength.
In fact, this thought wasn’t only common among those from the Cultivation Realm. Those from the Devil Realm were also reevaluating Zhao Hai’s strength. The Devil Realm wanted to swallow the Machine Field. They had been trying to deal with Zhao Hai but they had yet to succeed. They still don’t know that Zhao Hai was aware of their intentions, but they have to recalculate how to deal with him.
The Devil Realm needed to fight for resources, and people were also a type of resource in the World of Cultivation. However, for the Devil Realm to swallow the Machine Field, it would need to get rid of geniuses like Zhao Hai. Otherwise, their path would be troublesome.
But now, they found out that their trouble was much greater than what they imagined. The cost to eliminate Zhao Hai was higher than the benefits. They need to think this through well.
On the spectator seats of the Devil Realm was the team leader of the Devil Realm’s delegates. He was also an Elder from the Sacred Blood Sect. Since Tu Mietan was the realm’s champion, then it’s natural for the Sacred Blood Sect to lead the team.
There were currently a lot of people from the Devil Realm that came to watch this time. Besides the Elder from the Sacred Blood Sect, there are also a lot of guards who came with them as well as people from other Sects. All of them were here to ensure Tu Mietan’s safety.
The Sacred Blood Sect’s Elder had a two-character surname being Zhongli, and a single-character first name being Qiang. Back in the Devil Realm, he was given the nickname Boundless Blood Sea Devil. He studies a famed Cultivation Method of the Sacred Blood Sect called the Country Drowning Blood Sea. But this Cultivation Method needed to coordinate with a certain devil artifact. This devil artifact is known as the Blue Blood Gourd.
The Blue Blood Gourd’s origin traces itself back to the founding of the Sacred Blood Sect. When the Sect was being built, countless mortals were killed for their blood. This blood was concentrated into a huge blood pond. Because the sect was built on top of a yin vein, the yin energy coming out of it would be absorbed by the huge blood pond. Not only would the blood pond not dry up, but because of its location, it contained a dense amount of yin energy. This would in turn help the sect’s disciples to practice.
But without anyone knowing, a gourd vine just grew out from the blood pond. As the gourd vine grew, the yin energy and blood energy of the blood pond concentrated around it, turning the vine into the blue blood gourd vine. This blue blood gourd vine would open once every 100 years and produce a blue blood gourd.
Since it has grown in that special environment, the blue blood gourd became a very powerful artifact. Once it was refined, it would become a top-quality artifact. People from the Sacred Blood Sect aspire to have the blue blood gourd as their life source weapon.
But among the rest of the blue blood gourd, the one in Zhongli Qiang’s hands was very special. Since his family was one of the founding clans of the Sacred Blood Sect, the blue blood gourd that Zhongli QIang has been using has been pa.s.sed down through generations of their family. It was the same blue blood gourd that was used by their first Patriarch. This blue blood gourd has been nourished by many people causing the degree of the blood inside the gourd to be very high. This specific blue blood gourd was among the top artifacts of the Sacred Blood Sect.
Blue blood gourds were filled with profound yin blood, which was the blood in the underground blood pool of the Sacred Blood Sect. This blood was harvested from people and had received the nourishing of yin energy to become a weapon that could corrode magic artifacts. However, this blood was much worse than Zhao Hai’s blood ponds. And there was no way for it to compare to the profound yin water inside Zhao Hai’s s.p.a.ce.
And just like his gourd, the profound yin blood in Zhongli Qiang’s gourd was more special. This profound yin blood has also been pa.s.sed down through generations. Because of this, the profound yin blood inside the Zhongli Qiang’s blue blood gourd has very potent corrosive properties.
The profound yin blood was kept inside the gourd for a long time wasn’t because it wasn’t being used. In fact, it has been used numerous times. Otherwise, Zhongli Qiang wouldn’t have earned his nickname Boundless Blood Sea Devil.
There were a lot of Cultivators that thought that the blood inside blue blood gourds would run out. But in fact, it doesn’t. Since the blue blood gourd was a devil artifact, this meant that the blood inside it also had mystical properties. After going out and attacking, the blood would return to the gourd to be reused. Unless the blood has been destroyed to a certain extent, then even if it was dispersed, it could still be used.
It was precisely because of this that the Devil Realm allowed Zhongli Qiang to be the team leader of their delegation. The people from the Devil Realm clearly understood what the Cultivators were like. In fact, those people were as shameless and ruthless than anybody else. If the Devil Realm doesn’t send someone strong, then the Devil Realm’s delegation would be eaten up with not even the bones remaining.
At this time, Zhongli Qiang was frowning. Then he asked, “Everyone, this Zhao Hai, we need to deal with him. Do any of you have any ideas?”
Zhongli Qiang was a bit unsure about how to proceed. Zhao Hai was just too strong. If they left Zhao Hao for too long, then he might kill Tu Mietan. The moment they saw Zhao Hai killing Jiang Tian, they knew that Zhao Hai wasn’t easy to deal with,
Everyone was silent for a while. To be honest, they were having some problems in proceeding. Zhao Hai was that formidable. If Tu Mietan cannot kill Zhao Hai, then without doubt Zhao Hai would kill him.
Tu Mietan was still smiling and didn’t say anything. And he doesn’t have any right to speak at this time. With his strength, it’s better for him to shut up.
After some time, a guard said, “Leader, I think we shouldn’t make a move now. Zhao Hai is strong and it’s bad for us if he retaliates. Tu Mietan is our Devil Realm’s most talented genius in several decades. It’s not worth it if he dies here. We can just send someone to the Machine Field to kill Zhao Hai.”
Another guard coldly snorted as he said, “Do you think we can still kill Zhao Hai once we return to the Machine Field? If the Machine Field is so easy to infiltrate, then we wouldn’t have failed so much. I think we should kill him in the arena. And we need to go all out in killing him. I have some more yin thunder mines here, I can give them to Tu Mietan. I can see that Zhao Hai is starting to become complacent. When he fought with Yao Guang, he held back certainly because he wanted to try the Cultivation Ream’s formations. He wouldn’t kill his enemy immediately. And if he’s like this, then he would certainly try to see the methods of the Devil Realm. As long as Tu Mietan finds an opportunity to use these yin thunder mines, Zhao Hai will be dead for sure.”
Yin thunder mines are very cruel weapons of the Devil Realm. This weapon looks like a jade charm. It’s a consumable item that has very potent energy stored inside. If it explodes, its might is no worse than an attack from a Core Formation Expert. Additionally, these mines have the lightning attribute, making them lethal to most Cultivators. It can be said that these mines were one of the Devil realm’s weapons against the Cultivation Realm.
However, these yin thunder mines weren’t easy to manufacture. The methods to produce them were very harsh. Not only do these mines require high-quality materials, they also need to be engraved with numerous formations. And after carving the formations, one must find yin lighting to store inside the mines. Only then would the mines be completed.
In this process, engraving formations was difficult, but there were a lot of formation masters that could do it. The most tedious part of this process was finding the yin lighting. Almost all lightning have yang attributes. This was the reason why ghosts that were yin were afraid of lightning.
However, if yang exists, then yin exists as well. Even if yin attribute lightning was difficult to find, they were present. Also, capturing yin lightning was very dangerous. It’s even more dangerous than capturing yang lightning. Since yang lightning was more common, more people used it, making methods of its capture relatively known. On the other hand, since yin lightning is very rare, only a small number of people know how to handle it. In turn, this makes the process of capturing lightning very difficult.
Due to all of these considerations, yin lightning mines were rare weapons. No matter who has yin lightning mines in hand, they would always use it as a deterrent and rarely used it. If one has 3 to 5 yin lightning mines, they would live quite a safe life. Even Nascent Soul Experts wouldn’t dare make a move on them.
Now that someone offered a large number of yin lightning mines, everyone immediately turned their focus to him. The person wasn’t polite as he turned his hand, taking out 7 yin lightning mines. These seven mines were as large as a walnut and looked like black iron b.a.l.l.s. Then he turned to Zhongli Qiang and said, “Take these seven mines. If it can deal with Zhao Hai, then I’m fine with losing all of them.”
