The giant Domain Gate stretched across the void, slowly rotating, everlasting!
Outside the Domain Gate, a palace stood tall. This palace was obviously a combination of defensive, offensive, and flying artifacts. It was quite expensive and grand.
Inside the palace, one could vaguely see cultivators walking back and forth. Outside the palace, there were even figures shuttling back and forth!
Yang Kai led the many Open Heaven Stage cultivators to this place and immediately spotted the palace.
“Heavenly Sword Palace!” Old Bai whistled and exclaimed, “They even brought this thing out. They really want to settle down in our Void Territory!”
“Have you seen it before?” Yang Kai tilted his head and asked.
Although there were many Open Heaven Stage masters in the entire Void Land, and there were now sixteen Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters, in terms of experience and knowledge, none of them could compared to the First Inn people.
For many years, they had followed the Proprietress around the world, collecting all kinds of information about the 3000 Worlds, so there were very few things they didn’t know about in the Outer Universe.
Old Bai nodded and said, “I haven’t seen it before, but I’ve heard of the famous Heavenly Sword Palace. Back then, in order to forge this artifact, Heavenly Sword Union nearly went bankrupt and spent nearly a hundred years to complete it.”
Yang Kai was slightly surprised.
Heavenly Sword Union could be considered a top second class force, yet they had almost gone bankrupt for a single artifact and spent so much time on it. From this, it could be seen just how much Heavenly Sword Palace had cost them. The more they spent, the more they couldn’t be underestimated.
Although he had not personally witnessed the power of Heavenly Sword Palace, Yang Kai could still feel that it had an impregnable defense and unstoppable offensive power!
This kind of artifact had already exceeded the scope of an ordinary artifact. It was a weapon of war!
With such a powerful weapon, Heavenly Sword Union’s morale would definitely soar!
In comparison, the Void Land was somewhat shabby.
Yang Kai turned his head and looked around. Their current position was about three hundred thousand kilometers away from the Domain Gate. This distance wasn’t far, but it was definitely not close either. For Open Heaven Stage cultivator, a distance of three hundred thousand kilometres wouldn’t take them long to cross. Moreover, there were no obstructions in the void, so if their eyesight was good enough, they could even see each other’s situation.
Ships of all sizes were scattered across the void.
If there was a chance, they should go and forge a palace artifact. Otherwise, if they were to encounter such a situation again, their morale would be greatly reduced before the battle even began.
However, now that there was a shortage of resources in the Void Land, it wasn’t the time to think about such things. He could only think about it later.
“You didn’t see Zuo Quan Hui?” Yang Kai turned to look at Mao Zhe.
Mao Zhe slowly shook his head, “No.”
Yang Kai focused his attention on the Heavenly Sword Palace. Zuo Quan Hui hadn’t shown up, either he hadn’t come here, was still hiding in the Flying Smoke Territory, or was still inside the Heavenly Sword Palace!
Yang Kai estimated that the former was more likely to be the case. If he really came, he would not let Mao Zhe and the others leave so easily.
Or rather, he had been hiding in the Flying Smoke Territory and had now come to the Heavenly Sword Palace.
Even though a great killing weapon like the Heavenly Sword Palace had been summoned, it was still standing guard near the Domain Gate. It was obvious that it was only trying to probe the situation and wasn’t preparing to launch a large-scale attack. Otherwise, it would have been possible to mobilize the Heavenly Sword Palace and directly attack the Void Land!
Of course, directly attacking the Void Land was something he didn’t have the courage to do. With Bi Xi and Zhu Jiu Yin guarding it, who would dare act presumptuously?
Setting up Heavenly Sword Palace near the Domain Gate, He could attack or retreat at will. Zuo Quan Hui’s careful arrangements were exactly what Yang Kai wanted.
After thinking about it for a long time, Yang Kai said in a low voice, “I’m afraid I won’t be able to contribute much in the battle with Heavenly Sword Union, so you can only rely on yourselves. Be careful!”
The group of Open Heaven Stage masters around him were stunned, most of them didn’t understand what Yang Kai meant, but a few of them quickly reacted.
Yang Kai’s strength far exceeded an ordinary Sixth Order, so if he were to take action, no one from Heavenly Sword Union would be his opponent. At that time, he would definitely provoke Zuo Quan Hui, and once Zuo Quan Hui appeared, the situation would become difficult to control.
After all, no one on their side had been able to restrain a Seventh Order Open Heaven!
Currently, Zuo Quan Hui was hiding, mainly because he was afraid of Zhu Jiu Yin, who hadn’t come to this place yet. If Yang Kai didn’t show himself, he wouldn’t show himself easily, which would benefit the Void Land greatly.
Yue He was the one who had thought of this point, so when she heard this, she nodded and said, “Young Master can rest assured, if Zuo Quan Hui doesn’t take action, Heavenly Sword Union will be nothing but trash!”
For the current Void Land, they indeed had the qualifications to evaluate Heavenly Sword Union like this.
“Let’s set up camp first. I don’t know how long Zuo Quan Hui’s probing will last,” Yang Kai ordered, and everyone happily accepted.
Several figures flew out and disappeared into the void.
Half a day later, a Shattered Spirit Province was brought back from who knows where to settle everyone down.
This Shattered Spirit Province was a barren land, and there were many of them in every great domain. Although it couldn’t compare to the grandeur of Heavenly Sword Palace, it was still a good place to temporarily settle down.
After settling everything, Yang Kai immediately summoned all the Sixth Order masters to discuss the war, and everyone quickly expressed their own opinions. Soon, they determined that the most important task at hand was to determine the strength of Heavenly Sword Union!
Know yourself, know your enemy, and you will emerge victorious in a hundred battles. This saying was true anywhere.
On the other hand, the people of Heavenly Sword Union were all holed up in Heavenly Sword Palace, so it wasn’t easy to find them. Yang Kai had arranged for Luan Bai Feng to enter in advance, but in this situation, unless Luan Bai Feng left Heavenly Sword Palace, it was impossible for her to send out a message.
The Heavenly Sword Palace’s defensive array was activated and isolate the outside world, making it impossible to send out any messages.
But, Luan Bai Feng must be qualified to participate in the battle!
This matter wasn’t difficult. As long as he put enough pressure on Heavenly Sword Union’s side, Luan Bai Feng would definitely have a chance to play and set a plan. Yang Kai looked down and asked, “Who will be the first to fight?”
Iron Blood Great Emperor was the first to step forward, “Let me!”
It had only been half a year since he had broken through to the Sixth Order and he had spent most of his time in seclusion consolidating his cultivation. It was extremely boring and he had long wanted to have a good fight with others. Moreover, fighting with others was far more efficient than cultivating in seclusion to consolidate one’s cultivation. The danger of wandering between life and death often stimulated one’s potential.
Yang Kai smiled and said, “Senior Iron Blood, please don’t make a move for now. Your breakthroughs are all hidden forces of my Void Land. I’m preparing to give Heavenly Sword Union a pleasant surprise, so unless it’s absolutely necessary, I need you to hide.”
Iron Blood Great Emperor curled his lips and sat back down.
Mao Zhe stood up and said, “It’s better if we do it. After all, we need to get back the face we lost.”
Previously, they had been forced to retreat by the Heavenly Sword Union, not because their strength was inferior, but because they were fighting more enemies.
Now that all of the Void Land’s elites had been deployed, Mao Zhe naturally wanted to avenge his previous humiliation.
Yang Kai nodded and said, “Then I’ll leave the first team to the three Mountain Lords, and I’ll give you ten Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage masters and a hundred below Fifth Order!”
Mao Zhe and the other two stood up, “Yes!” Turning around, they walked out.
After they left, Yang Kai continued, “Grey Bones, Hua Yong, Shu Mu Dan!”
Grey Bones and the other two stood up and said, “This subordinate is here.”
“The three of you will lead another hundred people and prepare to assist at any time!”
The three of them nodded and went out to prepare.
“Yue He, Mo Mei!” Yang Kai called out again.
The two women stepped forward.
“Two hundred people, just in case!”
After issuing these orders, Yang Kai raised his head and looked outside. The eight Sixth Order masters from the Void Land had all appeared, so the Heavenly Sword Union would have to arrange for Luan Bai Feng to fight. As long as Luan Bai Feng had the opportunity to leave the Heavenly Sword Palace, she could find an opportunity to send a message.
A moment later, a large stream of light flew out from the abandoned Spirit Province and headed straight for Heavenly Sword Palace. Although there weren’t many of them, all of them were Open Heaven Stage cultivators. This was a battlefield for Open Heaven Stage cultivators, and those who hadn’t reached Open Heaven Stage weren’t qualified to participate.
At the same time, in the main hall of Heavenly Sword Palace, Zuo Quan Hui sat at the head of the table, with a group of Sixth Order cultivators standing in front of him. There were old, young, men, and women, but all of them followed Zuo Quan Hui’s lead.
“Reporting!” A disciple dressed in Heavenly Sword Union’s uniform rushed in and cupped his fists, “Reporting to Union Master, a hundred-man team from the Void Land is heading straight for Heavenly Sword Palace, led by Mao Zhe, Geng Qing, and Zhou Ya!”
Hearing this, Zuo Quan Hui coldly snorted, “Such courage, daring to take the initiative to attack.”
On his left, a middle-aged man stroked his beard and smiled, “A newborn calf is not afraid of a tiger, a young man’s temper is too hot, but this is just what the Union Master wants.”
This old man was originally a Sixth Order cultivator from Heavenly Sword Union, but because he was old and didn’t care about worldly affairs, he spent most of his time in secluded cultivation. After Zuo Quan Hui entered Heavenly Sword Union, he didn’t care if he was willing or not, he dragged him along to serve him.
Zuo Quan Hui swept his gaze over the crowd, “Who’s going to fight?”
The group of people below all looked at each other in dismay. Unlike the Void Land’s group who had volunteered themselves, none of them answered. Zuo Quan Hui had not hesitated to involve Heavenly Sword Union in this war in order to avenge his disciple, so naturally, the higher-ups of Heavenly Sword Union were not willing to take the initiative.
On the other hand, someone suggested, “Union Master, let these clowns come over and show them the power of Heavenly Sword Palace.”
The Heavenly Sword Palace was a treasure that focused on defense, offense, and flight, so it naturally had offensive capabilities. If the people from the Void Land dared to approach within a thousand kilometer of it, they didn’t even need to do anything. The Heavenly Sword Palace alone was enough to deal with them. If they weren’t careful enough, they might even be able to kill a few.
However, how could Zuo Quan Hui do such a thing? If he wanted to destroy the Void Land, if he wanted to kill Yang Kai, he would first have to cut off Yang Kai’s wings. If he really used the power of the Heavenly Sword Palace, it would only cause the Void Land to be unable to advance, which was not in line with his plan.
Moreover, the people from the Void Land weren’t fools, so how could they have come so close?
Moreover, this was the first confrontation between Heavenly Sword Union and the Void Land, yet no one had taken the initiative to help him resolve his problems, causing Zuo Quan Hui to be quite annoyed.
