Yang Kai had been trapped in the Universe Furnace for more than six hundred years without any news, his life or death unknown. This was undoubtedly a blow to the Human Race, especially now that the war between the Human Race and the Black Ink Clan had erupted.
Although there were currently a few Ninth Order Open Heaven masters, none of them had an overwhelming advantage when facing these Pseudo-Royal Lords.
Even veteran Ninth Order masters like Smiles and Wu Qing were unable to do so.
In Mi Jinglun’s understanding, the only one who could do such a thing was Yang Kai! Back when the Black Ink Clan was stuck in the Great Domain battlefields, if Yang Kai had been there, the battle wouldn’t have been so difficult.
He had thought that he would have to wait until the next time the Universe Furnace opened before Yang Kai would have a chance to escape, but now he had suddenly appeared.
Mi Jinglun was extremely surprised and couldn’t help asking, “How did you escape from the Universe Furnace?”
“Universe Furnace?” Yang Kai was stunned, but he quickly realized that Mi Jinglun must have made a mistake. Thinking about it, there is no news of him all these years, so anyone would think he was trapped inside the Universe Furnace.
He couldn’t help laughing, “I wasn’t trapped in the Universe Furnace. I was brought to the end of the world by it, so it took me some time to return.”
“The end of the world?” Mi Jinglun was confused.
“It’s a long story,” Yang Kai waved his hand, not wanting to discuss this matter any further. Right now, the war between the two races was more important, and even if others knew about the Universe Furnace opening a world in the Primal Chaos, it would be useless. At most, they would only be able to broaden their horizons, and this was just hearsay. How could it be the same as seeing it themselves?
Mi Jinglun didn’t ask any further, but his heart was filled with doubts. Where was the end of the world? Moreover, with Yang Kai’s methods, it had taken him several hundred years to return, so how far away was it?
Clearing his mood, Mi Jinglun said, “It’s good that you’re back, there are some things I need you to do.”
Previously, he and many of his subordinates had been discussing the war of a Great Domain and were worried about not having enough manpower to mobilize. Yang Kai’s return was just at the right time.
Yang Kai nodded, “Senior Brother, please give the order.”
“Come in.” Mi Jinglun took Yang Kai’s arm and led him into the hall.
After a while, everyone sat down.
Mi Jinglun said, “I’ll tell you about the current situation between the two races first.”
Yang Kai nodded. This was also what he desperately needed to know. When the Universe Furnace appeared, the war between the two races had already erupted. It had been more than six hundred years since the Universe Furnace closed, so after such a long time, he had no idea what the war between the two races was like or what the situation was like.
Previously, he had asked Zhan Wuhen about this matter, but Zhan Wuhen’s understanding wasn’t complete, so he didn’t discuss it with Yang Kai.
In terms of understanding the current situation between the two races, the Head Office was naturally the most thorough.
Immediately, Mi Jinglun explained the situation of the war over the past several hundred years.
Only now did Yang Kai realize that the Human Race had already conquered more than two hundred Great Domains, and the Great Domain Battlefield where the two races’ armies had been fighting had long since been recovered.
Yang Kai immediately felt that something was wrong. Although the Human Race had given birth to several Ninth Order and Eighth Order masters in the Universe Furnace and their strength had greatly increased, it shouldn’t be enough to achieve such great results.
He had originally thought that the war between the two races was still going on in the dozen or so Great Domain Battlefields, because according to his understanding of the Black Ink Clan’s side, the number of Pseudo-Royal Lords in the Black Ink Clan was definitely not small. Even if the Human Race had a few Ninth Order masters, it was impossible for them to recover so many Great Domains.
It wasn’t until Mi Jinglun mentioned Mo Na Ye that Yang Kai suddenly understood.
The Black Ink Clan was taking a step back in order to advance, extending the battlefront and dispersing the Human Race’s forces. Losing more than two hundred Great Domains wasn’t much of a loss for the Black Ink Clan, but after the Human Race recovered their lost territory, they needed to leave behind some troops to defend it so that the Black Ink Clan wouldn’t attack them again and cause them to lose contact with the front lines.
However, this was the Black Ink Clan’s scheme, so even if Mi Jinglun understood the Black Ink Clan’s intentions, there was nothing he could do about it. All he could do was try his best to ensure that the Human Race’s armies would not reveal any flaws.
Over the past few years, the Black Ink Clan had taken many actions against the Great Domain that had been captured, but most of them had been small skirmishes that had been easily dealt with by the remaining soldiers.
He also learned from Mi Jinglun that Smiles and Wu Qing had escaped, and the trump card he had left behind in the past had also been activated. Currently, in the Spatial Territory, there were a total of four Giant Spiritual Gods fighting.
Yang Kai wasn’t surprised by this. It was impossible for the Black Ink Clan to not use the trapped Ink Giant Spiritual God for a long time. To them, the Ink Giant Spiritual God was simply too helpful.
As such, once the two races began a full-scale war, the Black Ink Clan’s side would definitely find a way to help the Ink Giant Spiritual God escape. Smiles and Wu Qing’s strength wasn’t enough to truly restrain such a supreme master, so the trump card he had left behind was the perfect counter.
“Speaking of which, the battle in the Spatial Territory has caused a lot of trouble for the Black Ink Clan,” Mi Jinglun said with a smile, “Since the Black Ink Clan occupy the No-Return Pass, that is where the Black Ink Clan’s foundation lies. In the past, the Black Ink Clan had a large number of troops and supplies sent to the front lines from the No-Return Pass, but now, the battle between the four Giant Spiritual Gods has affected the entire Spatial Territory. Many times, the Black Ink Clan’s forces that passed through the Spatial Territory have been damaged. I can’t say for sure, but over the years, the Black Ink Clan has lost at least twenty percent of their forces in the Spatial Territory, which has relieved some of our pressure.”
Yang Kai couldn’t help raising his brow, “Really?”
This was something he hadn’t expected. At that time, he had only wanted to leave A' Da behind to deal with the Ink Giant Spiritual God, but now, it seemed that he had unintentionally taken advantage of it.
Thinking about it, the battle between the Giant Spiritual Gods was truly earth-shattering. The Black Ink Clan’s army would naturally have to travel from the No-Return Pass through the Spatual Territory. Anyone who was caught up in the aftermath of the battle would definitely suffer a miserable fate.
Most likely, the Black Ink Clan would have a headache over this matter, but in a battle between Giant Spiritual God, no one would be able to intervene.
“Currently, of the Human Race’s twelve main armies, only six of them have Ninth Order master in charge, Luo Tinghe is in charge of the Azure Sun Army, Xiang Shan is in charge of the Blood Flame Army, Ouyang Lie is in charge of the Mysterious Nether Army, Wei Junyang is in charge of Wolf Fang Army, Smiles is in charge of the Yun Xiao Army, Wu Qing is in charge of the Zi Hong Army, and the remaining six are Jing Lei, Chi Huo, Fen yue, Liang Yi, Qing Xia, and Yu Chan. Although I have dispatched many Holy Spirits to assist these six main armies, without a Ninth Order in charge, they are still lacking compared to the rest, especially Chi Huo’s side, which is currently confronting the Black Ink Clan’s army in the E-5 Domain.”
Saying so, Mi Jinglun casually waved his hand and the huge Universe Chart in front of him suddenly enlarged, displaying the Void Chart of the E-5 Domain.
Of the three thousand Great Domains, not every Great Domain had its own name, just like High Heaven Territory. In the past, there was only a code name, because High Heaven Territory didn’t have any powerful Sect, nor did they have the ability to break free from the Universe World's shackles. It was only after the Star Boundary became famous and Yang Kai came from High Heaven Palace that it was named High Heaven Territory.
Another example was the new Great Domain. In the Universe Chart, it was also just a code name, but now the Myriad Monster World was qualified to represent the new Great Domain. Perhaps in the future, when they created the Universe Chart, the new Great Domain would be named Myriad Monster Territory.
Only when a Great Domain had a powerful enough force would it be named after this force.
The E-5 Domain was a barren great domain. Although there had been a few Universe Worlds in the past, none of them had been very powerful, and the standard of these Universe Worlds' cultivators was not even comparable to the Star Boundary of the past.
After the Black Ink Clan invaded the E-5 Domain, the living beings on the Universe Worlds had basically all been killed. Now the Chi Huo Army is fighting for this Great Domain, and the Black Ink Clan’s army had arranged themselves here.
From the Universe Chart, the red and black lights each occupied half of the territory. The red light represented the Chi Huo Army, while the black light represented the Black Ink Clan’s army.
“After surrendering so many Great Domains, the Black Ink Clan must have felt that the time had come and was preparing to attack the Chi Huo Army. In recent years, the Black Ink Clan has been mobilizing their masters to enter the E-5 Domain. In the last great war, the Chi Huo Army was already struggling to hold on and suffered many casualties. If this situation continues, without reinforcements, the Chi Huo Army won’t be able to hold on for many years.”
Yang Kai nodded slightly, “Senior Brother Mi wants me to oversee Chi Huo?”
Mi Jinglun nodded, “Originally, our plan was that if we really couldn’t hold on any longer, we would withdraw from the E-5 Domain and disperse Chi Huo to join the other eleven armies, but since you’ve returned, it would be better to leave Chi Huo to you.”
Yang Kai pondered for a moment before replying, “I don’t have any objections, but I do have some ideas.”
Mi Jinglun said in a respectful manner, “Go ahead.”
Yang Kai said, “I once oversaw the Mysterious Nether Territory, and in the Mysterious Nether Territory, no one from the Black Ink Clan dared to act rashly. If I am in control of Chi Huo Army, it is likely that the Black Ink Clan won’t dare to come to my side and cause any trouble. As such, when I oversee the Chi Huo Army, the Black Ink Clan will avoid it as much as they can. If we can’t kill any of the Black Ink Clan’s masters, simply conquering a few Great Domains will be meaningless.”
Mi Jinglun nodded, “So right now, our goal is to kill the masters of the Black Ink Clan, especially those Pseudo-Royal Lords. The Black Ink Clan only has so many Pseudo-Royal Lords, and as long as we kill enough of them, the Black Ink Clan will no longer have the ability to compete with us Human Race.”
“If that’s the case, it would be better for me to act alone.”
Mi Jinglun was stunned for a moment, but after thinking about it for a moment, he said, “Indeed.”
Simply allowing Yang Kai to take charge of the Chi Huo Army would indeed allow the Chi Huo Army to enter the sea like a dragon. The Black Ink Clan would no longer dare act rashly in front of the Chi Huo Army, but an entire army would also slow down Yang Kai’s movements. If he was alone, it would undoubtedly be more convenient for him to move about. The other Ninth Order doesn't have this ability. But Yang Kai who is proficient in the Space Principle can. In case of emergency, Yang Kai can save a lot of time.
As the two of them conversed, the group of advisors sat quietly to the side, listening attentively.
Among the many Ninth Order Human Race masters, perhaps only this young man in front of them could speak so casually about the Black Ink Clan, but everyone knew that this was not arrogance, but extreme self-confidence.
