MARTIAL PEAK 5209


No one had expected to encounter the Human Race’s army here, and from the looks of it, it was obvious that they had been prepared. On the contrary, because they had been too careless, they hadn’t noticed until the enemy had arrived.


If one lost the initiative on the battlefield, the consequences would be dire.


Many Territory Lords turned to look at Zhe Chung, one of them hurriedly asking, “Do you want to fight?”


The distance between the two armies was less than an hour, so whether they wanted to fight or flee, they had to immediately come up with a plan. All the Territory Lords here is led by him, it was naturally up to him.


The corners of his eyes twitched, “The Human Race's side might have an Old Ancestor!”


The meaning behind his words was that if they were to fight, they would definitely suffer heavy casualties and perhaps even die here.


The Territory Lord who asked this question frowned and asked, “Wasn’t it the aftermath of the battle between the Human Race’s Old Ancestor and the Royal Lord there? Since that Human Race’s Old Ancestor fought with the Royal Lord, how could they be here?”


Hearing this, Zhe Chung was stunned for a moment and thought to himself; that’s right, just now there was indeed the aftermath of a battle between two Supreme Existence. The aftermath was obviously caused by the fight between the Human Race’s Old Ancestor and the Royal Lord. Since that was the case, there was definitely no Human Race Old Ancestor here.


Surely the Human Race wouldn’t send out two Old Ancestors, right?


He also has preconceived idea before. When he saw that the massive North and South Army fleet was no different from the one he had seen more than a year ago, he subconsciously thought that the Human Race’s Old Ancestor was among them, causing him to jump in fright.


Moreover, if the other party really had a Human Race Old Ancestor, even if they were to flee now, it would be too late.


Zhe Chung was also a decisive person, so after thinking about it for a moment, he immediately said, “Relay my orders, prepare for battle!”


With two or three thousand Battleships, it was estimated that there were at least thirty thousand Human Race cultivators. Although this number was less than ten percent of the Black Ink Clan’s army, the Territory Lords all knew that the combat strength between the two races could never be determined by numbers. Moreover, these thirty thousand Human Race cultivators represented dozens of Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivators.


As for their Territory Lords, there were only fifteen or sixteen of them here.


If they didn’t flee now, they would only give the Human Race an opportunity to pursue them, so setting up defenses was the best way to reduce their losses to the minimum and perhaps even severely wound them.


As soon as the order was passed down, the several hundred thousand Black Ink Clan soldiers quickly arranged themselves in a formation in the air, condensing their Ink Force to form a black ink cloud that enveloped the entire Black Ink Clan army.


Half an hour later, when the Human Race army arrived, this was what they saw.


As far as the eye could see, the huge black ink cloud in the sky was condensing and there was no trace of the Black Ink Clan.


On the deck of the Expelling Black Ink Battleship, Mi Jinglun and Ouyang Lie both wore gloomy expressions. It had to be said that the Black Ink Clan’s response had reached the peak of perfection, using the black ink cloud to conceal the movements of their army, making it impossible for the Human Race to determine the intentions and movements of the Black Ink Clan. If the Human Race were to rashly charge in, they would definitely suffer heavy casualties.


If the Human Race didn’t take action, it would be in line with the Black Ink Clan’s intentions. They could use this opportunity to reorganize their forces and formulate a strategy. The longer they delayed, the smaller the advantage the Human Race army would have.


Facing such a situation, there was no other way to deal with it. The only way was to use the power of the Battleship to scatter the black ink clouds and force the Black Ink Clan army to appear.


This was probably what the Black Ink Clan wanted to see, because by doing so, they would be able to exhaust the strength of the Human Race’s army, even though there would be many casualties.


Mi Jinglun and Ouyang Lie looked at each other and nodded.


The next moment, an order was passed down from the Central Army’s Expelling Black Ink Battleship.


Two or three thousand Human Race Battleships slowly sailed through the void and came to a stop a million kilometers away from the giant black ink clouds.


As the Spirit Arrays on the Battleships buzzed and flashed, violent energy fluctuations began to appear.


In a flash, terrifying beams of light transformed into different forms and shot towards the black ink cloud.


Two or three thousand Human Race Battleships were divided into five batches, each with four or five hundred Battleships. When this batch of Battleships attacked and gathered their strength, the next batch of Battleships attacked.


The five waves of attacks from the Battleship could almost guarantee that the Battleship’s momentum would continue to rise.


The power of these attacks, which were comparable to the full power of a Seventh Order Open Heaven's strike, blasted into the black ink cloud, causing it to continuously dissipate while a dazzling light exploded from within. From afar, the scene was extremely terrifying.


An aura of life was withering, but even with a million kilometers between them and the chaotic energy fluctuations, even an Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator couldn’t clearly sense it.


However, the aura of this withering life was clearly a sign that the Black Ink Clan hiding in the black ink clouds had fallen.


The Human Race’s offensive lasted for half a day!


During this time, the attacks of the two or three thousand Battleships didn’t stop for even a moment. The artifacts and spirit arrays on the Battleships continued to pour into the black ink cloud.


However, to everyone’s surprise, the Black Ink Clan army inside the black ink cloud did not react at all. It was as if they were hiding inside, waiting for an opportunity to strike, but it also seemed like they had long since left the battlefield.


However, even with black ink cloud’s cover, it was impossible to escape from the battlefield under the watchful eyes of so many Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage masters.


As such, the Black Ink Clan’s army remained hidden within the black ink clouds.


They were waiting!


When the Human Race’s offensive weakened, it would be the best time for them to fight back.


It had to be said that the Black Ink Clan’s Territory Lords were all able to control their temper. If it had been someone with a slightly more violent temper, they would have long since charged out from the black ink clouds.


However, this was also the last thing the Human Race wanted to see.


Half a day later, the giant black ink cloud that covered the sky gradually became thinner. Although the Black Ink Clan had been constantly using their Ink Force to condense the black ink cloud, they were still unable to resist the relentless bombardment of the human race Battleships.


If it weren’t for the large amount of Ink Force flowing out of the dead Black Ink Clan members’ bodies to fill the density of the black ink clouds, they would have long since revealed themselves.


Being able to persist for half a day was their limit.


The thin black ink clouds were no longer able to completely conceal the figure of the Black Ink Clan’s army. The powerful Eighth Order masters were already able to see through the black ink clouds’ barriers and spy on the strength of the Black Ink Clan’s army.


The situation made the Eighth Order masters unhappy.


Half a day of continuous attacks had indeed caused some casualties to the Black Ink Clan army, but it was far from what they had expected.


Of the nearly five hundred thousand Black Ink Clan soldiers, less than fifty thousand had fallen, roughly ten percent.


This kind of battle record was somewhat embarrassing. They had thought they would be able to defeat at least thirty percent of the Black Ink Clan.


The bombardment of the Human Race’s Battleships continued, and now that the black ink clouds had become thinner, the Human Race army’s attacks became even more aggressive. In the blink of an eye, the casualties of the Black Ink Clan became more severe.


The Black Ink Clan had obviously also discovered this problem, so with a single order from the Territory Lords, the four hundred thousand strong Black Ink Clan army quickly retreated from the black ink clouds and fled into the distance.


The Black Ink Clan wanted to escape!


How could the Human Race army sit idly by? Ouyang Lie immediately gave the order to pursue.


However, the Black Ink Clan’s escape was just an illusion. When the Human Race army stepped into the thin black ink cloud zone, the Black Ink Clan army that had been fleeing suddenly changed directions and rushed back.


The Great Evolution War Zone, which had been peaceful for thirty thousand years, had finally broken out with battle once again in the void several days away from the Great Evolution Pass.


Although the East and West Army had already raided one of the Territory Lords’ domain, that battle was different from the current situation, and the enemies they encountered were completely incomparable.


The Black Ink Clan’s response surprised Ouyang Lie and the others, but that was all.


When Ouyang Lie gave the order to pursue them, Mi Jinglun had been on guard, because although the Black Ink Clan had suffered some casualties, the two sides had yet to engage in an official battle, so it was impossible for the four hundred thousand strong Black Ink Clan army to flee without a fight. The Territory Lord leading the army also knew that once they began to flee, they would truly be finished.


Reality proved that the Black Ink Clan had no intention of fleeing. They only wanted to draw the Human Race’s army into the black ink cloud zone to create favorable terrain for themselves.


Although the black ink clouds had become thinner, they were still of great help to the Black Ink Clan. On the other hand, if the Human Race were to be enveloped by it, there would be many obstacles.


Although the Expelling Black Ink Pill was widely used on the battlefield, as long as one consumed it in advance, they wouldn’t have to worry about being corroded by the Ink Force for a short period of time, but as time passed, the effects of the pill would gradually fade.


Moreover, the more times one consumed the Expelling Black Ink Pill, the worse their effects would be.


Blue Sky Pass had once conducted a systematic experiment. Within a month, a Sixth Order Open Heaven cultivator could consume two Expelling Black Ink Pills. Any more and the efficacy would be greatly reduced.


A Seventh Order could consumed three times to have effects.


On the other hand, the amount of time the Expelling Black Ink Pill could last was limited, at most three hours.


As such, if they were to fight the Black Ink Clan in a place filled with black ink clouds, they would need to end the battle quickly. If they were to drag things out, it would be extremely disadvantageous for the Human Race.


The Black Ink Clan’s counterattack was just right, perfectly restricting the battlefield within the range of the thin black ink cloud.


However, the performance of the Human Race also surprised them greatly. They had thought that in this environment, the Human Race would be at a loss, but unexpectedly, the Human Race didn’t seem to be affected at all. When the two armies met, the Human Race’s Seventh Order Open Heaven leapt off their Battleships, completely ignoring the corrosion of the Ink Force.


Many of the Black Ink Clans were shocked. In their minds, the Human Race would be avoiding the Ink Force. The lower the cultivation of the Human Race, the more they will avoid it. Only a few Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivators could resist the corrosion of the Ink Force for a short time.


However, from the looks of it, these Seventh Order Human Race cultivators were actually able to swim freely in the black ink clouds without being affected at all.


What was happening?


The Black Ink Clan was shocked, but the Human Race’s small teams began to display their might, each of the Seventh Order is surrounding their own Battleship and coordinating with the other teams of their own guard. In just a single exchange, the Black Ink Clan suffered heavy casualties.


Thirty thousand against four hundred thousand, the difference in numbers is huge?


To the Human Race’s soldiers, the disadvantage in numbers was never a problem. Since ancient times, the Human Race had always fought with the Black Ink Clan in this kind of environment, so it could be said that they were very experienced.
