Zhanxian - Chapter 284
The secret land was very dangerous, no doubt about it. Even in his previous life, with the power of the Greatest Heaven Sect, they still lost much manpower there. If the Pure Yang Palace wanted to swallow this secret land, he was afraid that it would never pay less than the price of what Greatest Heaven Sect paid.
Another point was that the intelligence report of this secret land was acquired from a rogue cultivator in the Immortal World. Although this time, the Greatest Heaven Sect was not able to possess it but who could guarantee that the next time when another consciousness clone descended, they would not be informed about it? At that time, the sect or individual who had gone to the secret plane would definitely be the object of their vehement violent revenge.
Speaking of it, this secret plane was really dangerous. Compared with the abundant resources inside, the safety of the sect and its disciples was more important.
However, to let Yang Chen give up the wealth of this secret land to the Greatest Heaven Sect, such expectation was absolutely impossible. Since he couldn’t take it himself, he wouldn’t let the Greatest Heaven Sect to get the benefit either. If several large sects were involved, maybe the Pure Yang Palace could still get a piece of it.
And as for the explanation for the Palace Master? Yang Chen couldn’t explain where he got the news, as it would definitely cause suspicion!
In his heart, he made up his mind, and Yang Chen didn’t have any burden, and he was able to enjoy the jade dragon wine with the enjoyment of the Palace Master. Today’s master of the palace was very high-spirited. It may be the first indulgence after he was promoted to Yuanying ancestors. He turned out to be drunk and unconscious, and even forgot to put Yang Chen out of the “medicine” garden.
The Pure Yang Palace was celebrating happily, but there was raging anger on the Greatest Heaven Sect’s side. The Dacheng realm elder who rushed out to find the spiritual fluctuations similar to their welcoming array had returned, bringing back a message that made the Greatest Heaven Sect’s upper echelon shocked.
The place to develop the layout of the formation had been found. In fact, it was such large in scope that it was impossible to cover it completely, its detection was inevitable.
However, the discovery only found a trace of the explosion, any other spiritual powers did not even leave a smell. When he arrived, because of the unusual spiritual power, many heavy rains were ongoing. It was impossible to find any other clue other than the site of the explosion.
In the inaccessible area, there were remnants of many other explosions spread over hundreds of miles. However, clues of an explosion bursting from the centre were evident and like that of their large array, which explained much.
What was dazzling was that such a large scope did not leave a significant clue of its existence or trace of the perpetrator. Even the rubble from the explosion was cleaned up for investigation. Though tracing in this way was simply a joke.
The only certainty was that some people had arranged the same kind of array as their welcoming array, and then detonated the formation. Leading to the instability of the Greatest Heaven Sect’s consciousness once again, and in turn leading to the disaster.
All the high-ranking members of the Greatest Heaven Sect were like red-eyed bulls that had been slapped on their faces, all looked like murderers. Tens of thousands of servants’ life, they had to catch the murderer, they had to pay them for this slap in the face.
In fact, all the younger brothers of Jiedan realm and above in the Greatest Heaven Sect had all been sent out to look for any possible clues. The top level had already issued the pattern of the array and the materials used. Any master of the array, who had touched these materials would become a suspect.
The anger of the Greatest Heaven Sect was the joy of many sects. Even though the Greatest Heaven Sect was in a high position in the cultivation world, many would be happy in their misfortunes. All the sects were similarly in high spirits like the Pure Yang Palace; secretly celebrating and drinking. Their happiness even brought advances in their cultivation and refining. A happy and open mind was always beneficial.
As for certain Demon Sect disciples and Monster Cultivators, they openly celebrated. Everyone was already at life and death hostility. Some people gave them such a prize, it was not too late to celebrate.
The arrogance of the Greatest Heaven Sect in these years had indeed made many people dissatisfied. Due to the strength disparity and face of the Greatest Heaven Sect that no one had retaliated yet. Even the attitudes of several other large-scale sects were the same. It could be seen how much unpopular the Greatest Heaven Sect had become to people in these years.
The first object of doubt in the Greatest Heaven Sect was the several large gates that were almost identical to them. Everyone was competing to return to the position of the leader of the Dao sect, and sometimes would work behind the scenes. The previous Desolate Valley Five Elements Sect was one of them. However, currently, the Greatest Heaven Sect, whose strength was greatly damaged, could not bear the consequences of being an enemy with several major sects. Despite doubts, they did not dare to show it.
The second object of doubt was certain large Demon Sects and some extremely powerful Monster Cultivator alliances. It was only normal that they were the life and death enemies that the Greatest Heaven Sect had been in conflict with since a long time. It was normal for them to do such a thing.
At the third level, there were some rogue cultivator alliances. Dao Sects governed by the Greatest Heaven Sect were the most prosperous areas on the land. These rogue cultivators could only be forcefully evicted overseas. Although sometimes there was no opportunity for spiritual power progress overseas, consequently they had to compete with some powerful guys for it. For the Greatest Heaven Sect, if they said that they did not hate it would be fake. The Greatest Heaven Sect just had an accident, they were looking forward to dispelling this anger on others.
The last doubt was the smaller sects in the cultivation world. Among them, the most suspicious was the Pure Yang Palace which was relatively large. A few decades ago, the gates of Pure Yang Palace were destroyed. Though there was no loss of people. Who knew whether it was the Pure Yang Palace exacting revenge?
However, the Greatest Heaven Sect executives were still not sure about this. Whether the Pure Yang Palace knew of their complicity was doubtful. After all, the Pure Yang Palace had claimed the Hundred Thousand Mountains for many years. Anger from that disaster had already been swept under the rug due to the Hundred Thousand Mountains matter. At the same time, their attitude towards the Greatest Heaven Sect had not changed from beginning to end, so the seniors of the Greatest Heaven Sect were doubtful.
As for other small sects and rogue cultivators, they were the most unquestionable. Of course, this did not mean that all of them were unsuspected. Anyone who had a reputation for formation research was a suspect.
The people in the Greatest Heaven Sect had almost gone insane to check each cultivator. It caused havoc and panic among the cultivators.
Someone raised an objection, feeling their attitude being too much. The next day, people from the sect went and cut his head off. Since then, no one dared to say anything. They let the Greatest Heaven Sect act as they pleased.
Of course, these were rogue cultivators. Towards the real cultivation world giants, the Greatest Heaven Sect would not dare to use such an attitude. It was just such a big matter. If they got cornered by several large sects at this time, they would not be able to bear the consequences…
The welcoming array had always been the core secret of the martial art sects. It could hardly be said that it was impossible to get to know about it other than for the Palace Master and a few core Elders.
To think that on the side of the Greatest Heaven Sect, a similar welcoming array was arranged. Was it that these core elders have betrayed the sect?
The Palace Master was a smart person, and there was no such doubt. Almost all these elders were masters of the Dacheng realm and were all deep in seclusion. Basically, they had not participated in worldly affairs. They were so eager to ascend, that they would not participate in this kind of matter.
Thus, everything was like a mire making them puzzled. Could it be that the other party had not arranged a welcoming array, but some other formation which resonated with the welcoming array and caused it to explode? Reminiscent of the inexplicable semi-circular black hole above the welcoming array, everyone kept on guessing.
It was beyond the control of everyone for being confused, even Yang Chen, did not know the effect of arranging two similar welcoming arrays at the same time. He just tried it hoping for success and success he achieved in one fell swoop at that. And the understanding of the array by people in the Greatest Heaven Sect did not necessarily achieve even have half of what Yang Chen had arranged. How could they figure out such a core problem?
But the suspicion was still going on. The Greatest Heaven Sect was like a mad dog, attacking everywhere. Their bloody eyes stared at all the suspects, at even the slightest possibility, they would definitely rush to kill the other.
The Greatest Heaven Sect was really anxious. For the longest time, they could not exact revenge or even find a single clue about the perpetrator. In the same year, Pure Yang Palace had suffered similar destruction, but it also nabbed 100,000 people in the mountains. And one month after, when everyone was still talking about it, they had directly brought people to the old nest of the Hundred Thousand Mountains.
Even if one rushed from the Pure Yang Palace to the Hundred Thousand Mountains, the road would take almost a month. To say that the Pure Yang Palace was not prepared, was nonsense.
The Greatest Heaven Sect knew that for the Hundred Thousand Mountains, the Pure Yang Palace had been preparing for at least a few years.
However, even the small Pure Yang Palace was able to immediately find a target to vent its pent-up rage. Even took advantage from the highly prosperous Hundred Thousand Mountains. In comparison, the Greatest Heaven Sect didn’t even know the opponent, how would they not choke on their rage?
After more than a month, there were still no clues. Instead, many people had once again had a change of view about the Greatest Heaven Sect. It was only because of the special circumstances at this time, everyone dared not to anger them, but in the back, they would cheer and clap, wishing that the Greatest Heaven Sect experience a few more explosions.
However, after all, the Greatest Heaven Sect was still the Greatest Heaven Sect. Soon, dozens of small martial art sect groups united to deny this kind of destructive behaviour against the Greatest Heaven Sect. At the same time, these dozens of small sects discussed and collectively invested in the Greatest Heaven Sect, becoming one and the same.
Not only these dozens of small sects, but even a few rogue cultivator alliances, also voted over and joined the Greatest Heaven Sect. Despite the disaster making the reserve disciples suffer heavy casualties with the addition of so many new martial arts sects, they recovered some of their strength in just a few dozen days.
These joining forces were not as strong as those of the Greatest Heaven Sect’s reserve forces. The addition of foreigner disciples and slaves had alleviated the urgent needs of the Greatest Heaven Sect. There was no need to worry about successors in a short time. The dilemma that could not be cultivated by disciples.
The discerning eye almost immediately knew that why these dozens of small sects had supported the Greatest Heaven Sect? They were clearly pawns on a chess board that had been inserted in by the Greatest Heaven Sect. They had been helping them to do things that were too inconvenient for themselves. This was a difficult time for the sect, naturally they would return immediately to strengthen their prestige.
This kind of action, although several big sects had done it before, none of them were as powerful as the Greatest Heaven Sect. Dozens of small, martial art sects, plus two small rogue cultivator alliances, each of which looks less eye-catching, at most, had a Yuanying realm ancestor as their head, but the combined strength was significant. Nothing worse than Pure Yang Palace at the least.
The most speechless matter was that this was still part of the concealed power of the Greatest Heaven Sect. Who knew how much power the Greatest Heaven Sect had in their control?
This move alerted many sects. What was the plan of Greatest Heaven Sect? Secretly arranging so many pieces, many of them were even around the other major sects, making their intentions almost clear.
Fortunately, this time’s disaster had made the Greatest Heaven Sect expose these hidden pieces to stabilize the moral of the sect. If it had been going on like this for a long time, maybe these would become the culprits of disasters in other sects.
“The explosion was good!”
For the arrangement of the Greatest Heaven Sect, countless people had once again issued such a voice, and began to intentionally or unintentionally set up a variety of obstructions in the investigation of the Greatest Heaven Sect.
When the Greatest Heaven Sect started investigating about certain materials, Elder Zhang Feng immediately determined everything. While his heart was dark, he still urged several old elders in the Yuanying realm to quickly refine Yang Chen’s materials.
With the help of the newly added eight-member Yuanying realm monsters in Blue Vault Mountain Immortal’s Cave, this matter was handled quickly. It took only some short five days. All the materials were then handed to Gao Yue.
Gao Yue was currently consolidating her realm. The water attributed cultivation base had achieved almost the same level as the fire attributed cultivation base. Yang Chen also suggested her when she was leaving for secluded cultivation; If the coordination remained good, these two properties could definitely bring opponents unexpected disasters.
“What is this?”
Seeing a lot of good sword embryos sent by Elder Zheng Feng, Gao Yue could not help but be surprised.
“Let Yang Chen explain it to you!”
Elder Zheng Feng put things down, left a sentence and left.
Yang Chen was on the side of Gao Yue. It was easy to come back once, of course, to accompany his Master. It’s not that he had to do anything with master’s knowledge, but here at Gao Yue’s side, Yang Chen could relax, and enjoy the warmth and temptation.
Since the Elder Zheng Feng said this, Yang Chen certainly couldn’t explain it all. After thinking about it, Yang Chen decided to use the words of the Palace Master to convince Gao Yue.
The Greatest Heaven Sect was facing a disaster, and Yang Chen was the reason for all of this? Gao Yue couldn’t believe her ears. Once such a thing leaks out, not only Yang Chen, but also the entire Pure Yang Palace would face a great disaster.
“How do you deal with these sword embryos?”
After listening to Yang Chen’s description, Gao Yue said nothing about picking up a sword embryo and then asked. Since these things were hidden dangers but could also be used to fight for life and to cover up Yang Chen’s matter.
