Breaking Dawn flew forward silently.
Although they were on the periphery, they would occasionally encounter a few patrolling Black Ink Clan teams. Basically, all of them were led by Feudal Lords, with a dozen or so Black Ink Clan members following them.
From this, it could be seen just how much importance the Black Ink Clan placed on this defensive line, as if they were afraid that some Human Race master would break in.
However, the more this was the case, the more it showed that the Black Ink Clan had run out of tricks.
From ancient times until now, in the Ink Battlefield, when had the Black Ink Clan ever been so passive? They had always attacked the Human Race’s mountain passes on a large scale, and even if they suffered heavy casualties, after a few years of restoring their strength, they could still make a comeback.
In order to deal with the Black Ink Clan’s invasion, the Human Race had to put in a lot of effort. Generations of elites had been sent from the 3000 Worlds to the Ink Battlefield, but they had barely managed to maintain the pass.
Now, the Black Ink Clan in the Great Evolution War Zone no longer had the capital to act arrogantly.
This was the dawn of humanity’s victory, the glory of Great Evolution Pass.
About half a day later, another group of Black Ink Clan cultivators rushed towards Breaking Dawn. After a brief investigation, they found nothing unusual and quickly left.
On the deck, Yang Kai and Shen Ao looked at each other with solemn expressions.
It wasn’t a coincidence, the Black Ink Clan had really discovered something.
“There are no traces of spying, how did the Black Ink Clan discover this?” Shen Ao asked in confusion.
Yang Kai thought for a moment before replying, “Perhaps it’s because of the Ink Nest.”
“Ink Nest?” Ning Qizhi was confused.
Yang Kai nodded slightly, “Old Ancestor told me a few things about the King City. After the Great Evolution East-West Army evacuated, there was nothing unusual about the King City at first, but after more than ten years, the Black Ink Clan began to set up this kind of defensive line. Where did the Ink Force come from? Naturally, it came from the Ink Nest.”
Bai Yi suddenly interjected, “The place we passed by just now has two Ink Nests deep inside. Judging from their size, they should be Feudal Lord-level Ink Nests.”
Shen Ao was stunned, “You can see it?”
Bai Yi looked at Yang Kai and asked, “Team Leader should be able to see it, right?”
The reason she could see this was because as a disciple of Divine Feather Paradise, she had to cultivate her eye technique in order to coordinate with her archery to kill her enemies.
Yang Kai also cultivated the Eye Technique, and the Eye Technique of Myriad Demons Heaven was not inferior to the Divine Feather Paradise’s, perhaps even superior in some aspects.
Shen Ao and the others all looked towards Yang Kai, their faces filled with curiosity.
Yang Kai nodded and said, “It is indeed two Feudal Lord-level Ink Nests. Just as the Old Ancestor said, in order to set up a defensive line of Ink Force, the Black Ink Clan has gathered all the Ink Nests outside the King City.”
Originally, in the Great Evolution War Zone, there was a Royal Lord-level Ink Nest and nearly a hundred Territory Lord-level Ink Nest. Each Territory Lord had a dozen or even a hundred Feudal Lord-level Ink Nest.
In other words, in the entire Great Evolution War Zone, not to mention the Royal Lord and Territory Lord-level Ink Nests, there were at least thousands of Feudal Lord-level Ink Nest.
When the Great Evolution East-West Army had attacked, although many of them had been destroyed, that was only a small portion. Currently, the Black Ink Clan still had a lot of remaining Ink Nest.
Where were these Ink Nest now? Others might not know, but how could the Old Ancestor who had come to the King City many times not be able to?
Dozens of Territory Lord-level Ink Nest had been placed in the King City and protected by the Black Ink Clan’s army.
Doing so was also a helpless move. For the Black Ink Clan, besides the King City, there was no safe place in the entire Great Evolution War Zone. If the Ink Nest was placed outside, it might be destroyed by the Human Race.
Even more Feudal Lord-level Ink Nests were arranged in the periphery of the King City, using large amounts of resources to generate the Ink Force and strengthen the defensive line formed by the Ink Force.
In other words, in the periphery of the Black Ink Clan’s King City, almost every now and then, there would be a Feudal Lord-level Ink Nest. These Ink Nests would constantly generate the Ink Force, filling the defensive line and pushing it outwards.
When the Old Ancestor had arrived, she had also destroyed many of the Ink Nest, but once she made a move, her whereabouts would definitely be exposed, and the other Ink Nest would be quickly evacuated.
The two previous times the Breaking Dawn break into the different Feudal Lord-level Ink Nest’s defensive lines had all been detected, so it was obvious that this Ink Force does have a warning effect.
Perhaps the Feudal Lord in charge of the Ink Nest could sense the traces of the Ink Force being touched.
After pondering for a moment, Yang Kai said, “Send a message to the other three teams to inform them of the situation and tell them to be careful.”
The current situation was a bit difficult to handle. If one was lucky enough, they would be able to avoid it, but if one was unlucky enough, if one of the Black Ink Clan masters who came to investigate launched a casual attack, Breaking Dawn would definitely expose itself. The Illusion Array set up on Breaking Dawn’s body only had illusion effect, but it didn’t have any strong defensive capabilities.
Shen Ao quickly took out his Space Spirit Bead and sent a message to Chai Fang and the others.
On the deck, Yang Kai turned his head to look in the direction of the Black Ink Clan’s King City. This place was about a month’s journey away from the Black Ink Clan’s King City, so when Great Evolution Pass arrived here, it would definitely be discovered by the Black Ink Clan. At that time, the Black Ink Clan would be able to use the Ink Nest’s transmission to quickly make preparations for the King City.
A month was more than enough time for the Black Ink Clan to respond.
At that time, the effects of the Great Evolution Pass’ surprise attack would be greatly reduced.
Was there any way to conceal this from the eyes and ears of the Black Ink Clan?
Unless they could seize some of the surrounding Ink Nest without leaving a trace.
It was difficult! However, it was up to the individual.
Having made up his mind, Yang Kai ordered, “Be careful and retreat, follow the perimeter of the defensive line.”
He planned to first investigate the situation of the Black Ink Clan’s defensive line. With so many Ink Nest defensive lines, it seemed like they were tightly connected and extremely large, but in reality, they were extremely bloated and didn’t necessarily have any flaws.
The reason why he wanted to withdraw was because he didn’t dare to step into more Ink Nest Domains. After all, every time he stepped into an Ink Nest Domain, he would be investigated.
The first two times, he had been lucky and hadn’t been exposed. If he had come a few more times, no one could guarantee what would happen.
Under the careful control of the Dawn Battleship’s members, the battleship arced through the Black Ink Clan’s defensive line and carefully retreated.
At this moment, Shen Ao whispered, “The three teams have responded. Old Turtle’s team and Profound Wind’s team have the same idea as us. They’ve withdrawn from the defensive line and are looking for a place they can use. Snow Wolf’s team said they want to go deeper.”
“Deeper?” Yang Kai frowned.
Shen Ao nodded, “Brother Yao said that since the Black Ink Clan’s Ink Nest has set up a defensive perimeter, once the defensive perimeter is pushed outwards, the Ink Nest will definitely move out as well. This way, there will be no Ink Nest in the inner perimeter, and without the Ink Nest, there will be no Feudal Lord to guard it, making it even safer.”
Yang Kai pondered for a moment before replying, “That may be so, but the Ink Force in the depths of the defensive line is quite rich, and there are many teams patrolling the perimeter, so it’s not necessarily safer than the periphery. If we expose ourselves in the periphery, we can find an opportunity to escape, but if we expose ourselves inside…”
The consequences would be dire.
He had also thought about this matter just now, but since they're the army scout, he naturally had to consider the surprise attack of Great Evolution Pass.
Getting rid of the Black Ink Clan’s spies and increasing the success rate of Great Evolution Pass’s surprise attack was the correct method.
However, if he went deeper into the inner circle, he might be able to obtain more information.
“Can you still contact him?” Yang Kai asked.
Shen Ao shook his head, “Brother Yao has already cut off contact.”
Although the sound of their communication was extremely small, if an expert happened to be nearby, it was possible that they would notice.
Since Yao Kang Cheng wanted to lead the Snow Wolf Squad deep into the defensive line, he naturally didn’t dare contact Yang Kai and the others. Keeping the Space Spirit Bead in his Space Ring was the safest method.
Yang Kai frowned slightly.
Yao Kang Cheng had his own way of thinking, so he wasn’t surprised. After all, he was a veteran Seventh Order. Moreover, there were four teams, three of which were on the periphery, so entering the inner circle was indeed a good choice.
However, he had originally wanted to discuss with the other party about allowing Breaking Dawn to enter the inner circle. After all, he was proficient in the Space Principle, so if he were to really expose himself, he could take the people under Seventh Order into his Small Universe, and the hope of leading the other Seventh Order to escape is also greater.
Now that the other party had severed their connection, he could only give up.
He hoped that everything would go smoothly, but just as Yao Kang Cheng had said, all of the Black Ink Clan’s Feudal Lord-level Ink Nest’s Ink Force were gathered in the periphery, so although the Ink Force in the inner region had become a bit denser, it was actually more convenient to act.
At the very least, the Feudal Lords in charge of the Ink Nest wouldn’t be able to monitor the situation from so far away.
Perhaps they would gain something different.
Without thinking too much about it, Breaking Dawn moved closer to the periphery, searching for flaws in the Black Ink Clan’s defensive line.
There wasn’t much time left, they had only arrived here two months earlier than Great Evolution Pass. In other words, after two months, Great Evolution Pass would arrive. If they couldn’t deal with the Black Ink Clan’s spies before then, Great Evolution Pass’s surprise attack would definitely be exposed.
Two months seemed like a long time, but it wasn’t easy to find an opening in this massive Ink Force defensive line.
Time passed, and as the Ink Force continued to expand, the Black Ink Clan’s defensive line also continued to push forward, but it was only for a short period of time, so the rate at which it was advancing wasn’t great.
He also didn’t encounter Old Turtle and Profound Wind.
The Black Ink Clan’s defensive line was a giant sphere constructed with the King City as its center, spanning a month’s distance from the King City.
Currently, the three teams, including Breaking Dawn, were moving along the outer arc of this sphere.
In such a large area, the chances of them encountering each other were too small.
At a certain moment, Yang Kai, who was watching from the deck, suddenly noticed something and turned his head back.
As far as the eye could see, a flying ship was flying out from the depths of the void towards Breaking Dawn.
Yang Kai’s heart was in his throat.
How could there be a Black Ink Clan outside? If they were to bump into them, Breaking Dawn would definitely be exposed. Even if they didn’t bump into them, if Breaking Dawn were to block their path, the Black Ink Clan on the ship would feel like they were in the way and would simply sweep them aside. Breaking Dawn’s disguise wouldn’t be able to escape their detection.
Above Breaking Dawn, the group of members also became nervous. Yang Kai signaled with his eyes, and in an instant, everyone secretly urged their strength, preparing to attack at any moment.
If their speed was fast enough and they were able to finish off the Black Ink Clan on the ship, the Black Ink Clan inside might not be able to detect them. Of course, there was also the possibility of them being exposed, but at this moment, they could only take a gamble.
When they were less than a hundred thousand kilometers away from each other, the Black Ink Clan’s flying ship suddenly changed directions, almost brushing past Breaking Dawn as it plunged into the Black Ink Clan’s defensive line.
Everyone breathed a sigh of relief.
