Obviously, after Xu Que left the battlefield, the human cultivators’ situations worsened. The cultivators of the Heaven Orc Tribe had been greatly infuriated by Xu Que. Now Xu Que had gone, leaving all the other human cultivators behind.
The human cultivators who had been left behind were all stunned, and, after a short while, they began to run away. After all, no one would want to face a group of angry cultivators of the Heaven Orc Tribe. Fighting against them would be tantamount to committing suicide.
Meanwhile, on the frontline of the human cultivators’ camp, there were still a small group of backups left. In the middle of the open space of the camp, there were two enormous jade stones. The two stones were close to each other and on top of the stones, there were three characters, which said Ranking Chart for Soldiers and Generals. On the surface of the jade stone on the left side there were two characters, which said Ranking Chart for Soldiers, and the jade stones on the right said Ranking Chart for Generals.
There were thousands of names on the two stones respectively. The names were written alphabetically, and there were a bunch of numbers written right next to each name. Clearly, the numbers stood for the credits each soldier or general had made. A few soldiers came by, trying to check how many credits they had earned, so they could exchange some valuable objects.
“It is really hard to earn credits. I killed a cultivator of the Form Synthesis Stage, and I only got ten credits!”
“You should be satisfied. Look, someone found a bottle of Pei Yuan Pills, and he only earned five credits.”
“Look at those soldiers who rank in the first hundred on the list. The soldier that ranks last gets 1,000 credits, which means that he must have killed at least more than 100 cultivators of the Heaven Orc Tribe.
“Look at those who rank in the top ten. They have got more than 7,000 or 8,000 credits each, which means they have killed hundreds of cultivators of the Heaven Orc Tribe.”
“My goodness, the general that ranks last on the list of the Ranking Chart for Generals has got 10,000 credits….”
“You know what, each general on the list of the Ranking Chart for Generals has killed many cultivators of the Crossing Calamity Stage of the Heaven Orc Tribe.”
“You are right, killing a cultivator of the Crossing Calamity Stage of the Heaven Orc Tribe can get 200 credits, just like killing 20 cultivators of the Form Synthesis Stage of the Heaven Orc Tribe does.”
The soldiers talked, while walking toward the Ranking Chart for Soldiers and Generals. Then each of them took out his own identity card to check how many credits they had got. On the list of the Ranking Chart for Soldiers, there were only 1,000 soldiers listed. For those who ranked behind, they would have to check their credits with their identification cards.
“How strange, I remember I was ranked 900th the day before yesterday, why I am ranked 901st now?!”
“No way, you went to the battlefield yesterday, how can this be?!”
“Besides, the man who ranks behind you has much less credits than you. It is impossible for him to surpass you!”
The soldiers walked forward and were very surprised by what they saw.
“What is going on?”
“I think the list is not very different from what it looked like a few days ago.…”
“Look! Someone else has become the first on the list of the Ranking Chart for Soldiers!”
“It’s Liu Ye from the Cloud Eagle Faction! I remember that he ranked last in the list of the Ranking Chart for Generals the last time. How on earth has his name dropped from the list of the Ranking Chart for Soldiers?”
“Wait a minute, who ranks last in the Ranking Chart for Generals?”
“Can it be that young man?!”
They were all shocked and hurriedly glanced at the Ranking Chart for Generals.
In the golden and shining Ranking Chart for Generals, they saw a few words that they never seen before, which said, “Li Bai of the Exploding Heavens Faction, fifth level of the Void Training Stage, credits: 13,010.”
“Holy crap! How can this be?”
“Li Bai of the Exploding Heavens Faction? I have never heard of this name or seen it on the Ranking Chart for Soldiers!”
“Can it be possible that he directly makes his way into the Ranking Chart for Generals?”
“This can’t be true! You see, he is just in the Void Training Stage!”
“I never knew someone of the Void Training Stage who could make his way into the Ranking Chart for Generals!”
“I think there must be something wrong with the Ranking Chart for Soldiers or Generals. We shall report this to the General!”
Then, they all hurriedly dashed to the camp.
Soon, the news spread: There is nothing wrong with the Ranking Chart for Soldiers or Generals. There was indeed a young man who managed to kill countless cultivators of the Heaven Orc Tribe all by himself on the battlefield. The General had asked the soldiers to find out who the young man was and had decided to recruit him into the Divine Son Division. As soon as the news got around, everyone was shocked.
How can a cultivator of the Void Training Stage be so powerful?! It only took him a day for him to put his name onto the list of the Ranking Chart for Generals? Besides, the General even wants to recruit him!
Many soldiers were jealous about this.
“The Divine Son Division is a team made up of extremely talented cultivators, for god’s sake!”
“As the name, the Divine Son Division, itself tells, everyone in the Divine Son Division can be called a divine son. It was established almost a century ago, but there are only 30 genuine talents who come from various influential Factions.”
“I do envy him! Once he gets into the Divine Son Division, the General will do everything and give him everything he wants to cultivate him.”
“Nonsense! The General is such a noble man and is in the top level of the Great Vehicle Stage, even His Highness will not contradict him.”
“Shush! You should not say such a thing! We all know this is true, but you shall not speak it out!”
In less than a day, everyone in the frontline knew about Li Bai.
At the same time, Xu Que and Jiang Hongyan appeared on a desolate mountain, which was not very far from the camp. Earlier, Xu Que had run out of all his Taoist Connotation, so he could no longer fight against the cultivators of the Heaven Orc Tribe and ran away. But he was not upset by this, and in fact, everything just went as he had planned. Although he could not continue to kill any cultivators of the Heaven Orc Tribe, he still managed to act tough.
“If I had mastered the Gautama Buddha Seal, I would not have had to run away!” Xu Que said with a bit of regret.
To practice the Gautama Buddha Seal, Xu Que would have to master the other three seals of the Heaven and Earth Seal. However, he had only managed to master the Heavenly Thunder Seal so far and had not even started to learn the other two, simply because he did not have enough Skill Essence.
I would have to find some opportunities to get some superb incantations!
“Xu Que!” Jiang Hongyan looked at Xu Que in surprise! “You are already in the fifth level of the Void Training Stage?!”
Xu Que smiled. “I have given you quite a shock, haven’t I?! You know what, after I have a good sleep tonight, I will go to the battlefield again!”
Hearing this, Jiang Hongyan was shocked. Although she knew that Xu Que was a very talented man, she never thought that he could jump from the third level of the Void Training Stage to the fifth level in half a day.
Judging from his breathing, I can tell that he would soon be in the sixth level of the Void Training Stage. How did he manage to do so? How can there be such a talented man in this world?!
“Hongyan, we shall leave now! It is already late, I think by the time we arrive at the camp, the sky will be bright already.”
Xu Que smiled and held Jiang Hongyan’s hand and they dashed forward.
The next day, the refreshed human cultivators came to the battlefield again. The cultivators of the Heaven Orc Tribe had already calmed down. They had learned from yesterday’s battle and had chosen a new strategy. As soon as the human cultivators arrived at the battlefield, they saw countless cultivators of the Heaven Orc Tribe dividing into hundreds of smaller teams. The leaders of the Heaven Orc Tribe had made it clear that anyone who contradicted their orders would be immediately executed.
All the cultivators of the Heaven Orc Tribe were in high spirits.
“Kill!” They shouted while heading to the human cultivators.
Seeing this, all the human cultivators were shocked.
I have no idea how to attack them since they have been divided into so many forces. We have never been trained to react in this situation!
Right at this moment, a huge explosion rang out, accompanied by a laughing sound. The next minute, an enormous sword fell right onto the ground.
“My dear friends, I am Li Xiaoyao, the younger brother of Li Bai from the Exploding Heavens Faction. I come here today for him to fight against the cultivators of the Heaven Orc Tribe!”
