The Black Ink Clan also had many good things in their possession. If these artifacts were brought back to the pass and handed over to specialists, they would be able to disassemble many useful materials. These materials naturally couldn’t be used for cultivation, but forging human artifacts and repairing human Battleships was no problem.
From these dead Black Ink Clans, they had even managed to collect a lot of Black Ink Coins. In fact, Blue Sky Pass had also collected a lot of Black Ink Coins. Every time a great war broke out, the Black Ink Clan’s army would suffer countless casualties. Although these dead Black Ink Clans weren’t very rich, after accumulating so many Black Ink Coins, Blue Sky Pass’s Black Ink Coins had reached a terrifying number.
However, this thing was the common currency of the Black Ink Clan, and the Black Ink Clan could use it to purchase things they wanted, so it would be useless to humans.
The only regretful thing was that there was no sign of Black Ink Disciple in this battle.
In the hinterlands of the Black Ink Clan, the number of Black Ink Disciples was actually not small. However, during the last battle outside Blue Sky Pass, many Black Ink Disciples had fallen. Although Yang Kai’s Purification Light could save these Black Ink Disciples, in a battlefield where blades and swords were blind, who would have enough strength to capture them?
After being corroded by the Ink Force, Black Ink Disciple’s top priority is the Black Ink Clan. Facing their former human compatriots, they would show no mercy. On the battlefield, unless there was a clear disparity in strength, there was no chance to capture Black Ink Disciple alive.
The battle several years ago had greatly reduced the number of Black Ink Disciples in Blue Sky War Zone. Many of the Black Ink Clan had left their Black Ink Disciples behind when they fled, which was probably the reason why no Black Ink Disciples had appeared in this group.
“Are you alright?” Inside the cabin, Feng Ying asked Yang Kai.
In this battle, Yang Kai took the lead and charged forward alone. Although he was not injured, there was a trace of dried blood at the corner of his right eye, the after-effect of activating his Purgatory Black Pupil.
Cultivating this Secret Technique wasn’t an easy task, and although he had managed to accomplish some amazing feats by dealing with the Black Ink Clan Feudal Lord, he had also paid a small price.
“It’s fine,” Yang Kai waved his hand, “I’ve gained something from this battle, so I’ll go into seclusion first. Call me when we arrive.” Saying so, Yang Kai walked towards his room.
This was not the first time he had used the Purgatory Black Pupil. He had used it before in the Star Boundary, but this time it was completely different from the last time he had used it. The power of this Eye Technique had yet to improve, and its prospects were limitless.
The battlefield was quickly cleaned up and the Breaking Dawn Battleship continued forward.
After such an encounter, the morale of the Dawn Squad soared.
This was the first battle in the true sense for the Dawn Squad.
Against more than a hundred Black Ink Clan and three Feudal Lords, they had managed to defeat them without much effort, while their own bodies had not suffered any damage. Such a glorious battle record was something that no team in the entire Black Ink Battlefield could achieve.
The good start made everyone from the Dawn Squad clench their fists.
After the first attack, the Dawn Squad became more vigilant, but no one dared to provoke them again.
Two days later, a floating continent appeared in front of them. From a distance, it was possible to see a large number of buildings on the floating continent, with team grade Battleships constantly rising into the sky or returning.
This was the fourth frontline base of Blue Sky Pass, a place where various resources were abundant.
Originally, this place had been occupied by the Black Ink Clan, but a few years ago, the Black Ink Clan’s army had suffered a great defeat and the defensive power of this place had been greatly weakened, allowing Blue Sky Pass to seize this opportunity.
This place had just been seized a few months ago, so there were still many things to do.
When the Breaking Dawn Battleship rushed over, it immediately attracted the attention of the vigilant cultivators in the base, causing several streaks of light to rise into the sky and block its path, all of them wearing vigilant expressions.
The leader of the group shouted from afar, “Who goes there? State your name.”
Breaking Dawn Battleship was obviously a special type of Battleship, even more powerful than a standard Battleship. If this Battleship belonged to the Human Race, it would naturally be a cause for celebration, but if it was snatched by the Black Ink Clan, it would not be a good thing.
Yang Kai, who had been summoned by Feng Ying, quickly arrived on the deck and called out, “Dawn Squad, come to support.”
“Dawn?” The person who had called out just now raised his brow, somewhat stunned. Generally speaking, every team had their own superior, which guard they belonged to, which garrison they belonged to, which regiment they belonged to, all of these were clearly stated when reporting one’s origin, but Yang Kai only mentioning the word ‘Dawn’ made him somewhat confused.
However, soon after, he seemed to have thought of something and looked over, asking in surprise, “Is this person Brother Yang Kai?”
“Yes!” Yang Kai nodded.
“Is it really Brother Yang?” The man was surprised and quickly rushed over to investigate. Seeing that it really was Yang Kai, he was overjoyed.
Yang Kai didn’t recognize him, but he did. There was almost no one in Blue Sky Pass who didn’t know about Yang Kai. During the last war between the two races, relying on the Purification Light and the Expelling Black Ink Battleship, the Human Race had reduced their losses. Countless clansmen who had been infected by the Ink Force had been saved, and the source of all this was Yang Kai.
It could be said that almost everyone in Blue Sky Pass had been indirectly or directly saved by Yang Kai.
After that battle, Yang Kai’s name became famous throughout Blue Sky Pass.
On top of that, it was said that a few of the Regiment Commanders had specially promoted him to be the Team Leader of a team called the ‘Dawn’. This team was not affiliated with any military force and was only responsible for the Regiment Commanders.
There had been many people who wanted to join the Dawn Squad, but the Dawn Squad members had been chosen by Feng Ying. She had only recruited a few dozen members from the group who had followed them back from the Black Ink Clan’s hinterlands, but the others had been put on hold.
He had never imagined that the Dawn Squad would actually come here and that Yang Kai would personally lead them.
After confirming that it was Yang Kai and Dawn Squad, there was no need to check anything else. The cultivator who had spoken immediately had the Breaking Dawn Battleship set down in the Floating Continent’s base.
“Did Brother Yang come here under the orders of the Regiment Commander?” The Seventh Order Open Heaven asked.
Yang Kai shook his head, “I was the one who wanted to come here. I heard that the battle here was quite fierce, so I wanted to come here to collect some battle merits.”
The Seventh Order Open Heaven heard this and smiled, “Brother Yang, if you want battle merits, it’s simple, why do you need to personally fight?” As he spoke, he saw a battle mark on the Dawn
Battleship and asked in surprise, “Were you attacked?”
Yang Kai nodded, “Two days ago, we encountered an ambush from the Black Ink Clan.”
Hearing this, the Seventh Order master was shocked, “The Black Ink Clan actually went around? How many people are there and how strong are they?”
Yang Kai briefly explained the situation of the Black Ink Clan’s ambush.
Hearing this, the Seventh Order master said, “This matter is of great importance, we must report it to the higher up overseeing this place and quickly deal with it, otherwise, if another team comes from the pass, they will likely be ambushed.”
Feng Ying heard this and said, “There’s no need. The Black Ink Clan’s ambushing army has already been completely wiped out, and they should be the only one. We didn’t encounter any other ambushes on our way here.”
The Seventh Order master’s jaw dropped, “Completely wiped out?”
In other words, not a single one of them had managed to escape. He couldn’t help looking at the small damage in the Breaking Dawn Battleship and then at Yang Kai and the others who were still intact. He really wanted to ask what kind of price the Dawn Squad had paid to cause such an ambush to be completely wiped out.
With the Dawn Squad’s configuration, and the ambushing troops were to encounter them, it would be considered a stroke of bad luck for them and they would definitely not be a match. However, looking at Dawn Squad’s current state, it seemed like they had not suffered any losses at all, which was quite unbelievable.
However, considering Feng Ying’s strength, this person quickly understood.
Although Feng Ying was a Seventh Order, she was also famous in Blue Sky Pass. With her in charge, how could the Black Ink Clan’s ambush be an opponent?
Feng Ying didn’t dwell on this matter any longer. In any case, when the battle achievements are reported in the future, the War Preparation Palace would receive all the information needed, so she asked, “How many higher ups are currently guarding this place?”
The Seventh Order composed himself and said, “There are four Eighth Order master in the base, Garrison Chief Xie Xiuping of the Eastern Army, Garrison Chief Zha Hu of the Southern Army, Garrison Chief Lu An of the Western Army, and Garrison Chief Xu Boliang of the Northern Army. However, besides Garrison Chief Zha Hu, the other three are not in the base.”
Since they’re not in the base, it meant that they had gone deep into the resource area. Because this resource area had just been conquered, the Black Ink Clan hadn’t completely given up and were still struggling with the Human Race, many of whom were Territory Lord level Black Ink Clan.
In order to deal with a Territory Lord, the Human Race’s Eighth-Order Open Heaven had to act, which was why three Eighth Order masters weren’t in the base.
Hearing this, Yang Kai nodded and said, “Take us to see Garrison Chief Zha.”
After coming to this fourth base, they would have to register here and listen to the Eighth Order’s orders.
The Seventh Order was just about to nod when another Battleship suddenly flew over from the distance. The Battleship’s flight was extremely strange, clearly damaged. The light from the Battleship’s Protective Array was also extremely weak.
Although they weren’t too far away, everyone’s eyesight was profound, so they could naturally see traces of battle all over the Battleship. From these traces, they could infer just how intense the previous battle had been.
Although the skeleton of such a Battleship was still intact, almost all of its Formations had been destroyed and must be overhauled to enter battlefield again.
Although the Battleship was crooked, it was flying towards the base at an astonishing speed and had no intention of slowing down. On the deck, a cultivator was shouting to give way for the battleship. From the looks of it, the Battleship’s Power Formation had been severely damage, and from the look of it, it was difficult to stop by itself.
Seeing that the Battleship was about to fall to the ground, a figure immediately flashed out from the Battleship and stood in front of it. With a furious roar, he used his physical body to resist the impact of the Battleship.
With a muffled bang, the man’s body trembled slightly as he involuntarily retreated.
Fortunately, someone from the base quickly went to help and stopped the Battleship.
As soon as the Battleship landed, the Artifact Refiners and Array Masters who had been preparing for a long time rushed forward to repair it.
