Du Ke's confidence did not come from nothing.
Other than him, the Sin Domain Army consisted of more than half of the elites of the Sin Domain, with half in the top 10 of the List of Powerhouse. Every single one of them were geniuses who had experienced countless of brutal tests. When these elites gathered together and shared their thoughts, the effect they produced was extremely anticipatory.
Their advancements proved that they were right, as they quickly broke through.
The first thing they required was for Du Ke to overcome the interference that the energy had on laws. On this point, Du Ke's conjecture had some deviations. The energy that interfered with laws was everywhere, and the higher the realm of laws, the more influence there would be. But Du Ke's comprehension of laws far exceeded anyone, and when he realized this special point, he pondered for a moment, and then understood the crux of the matter.
The Sin Domain martial artists who trained in lower realm laws used the power of the physique to incite Law Threads, and Law Threads that were directly connected to the body received the lowest influence. And as for the Sin Domain martial artists who had gained enlightenment on Law Surfaces and used the power projected out from the Law Surfaces to fight, their law surfaces were not directly connected to their body, and thus the reaction from energy would be more intense. It was the same for martial artists who had trained on the Law Domain.
Du Ke and the rest quickly thought of an idea, they changed their style of summoning their laws, they first used the power of the physique to incite the Law Threads, and then used the Law Threads to evolve to Law Surfaces or Law Domain.
And these brilliant elites started to consider how to have their laws to control the energy. This was a large undertaking, as the number of laws was as extensive as the seas, and the number of attributes of energies were equally as many as the stars. If we were to say that laws were a sort of key, then they needed to find a corresponding lock.
The Desolate Continent had extremely thin energy, and the interference was not as intense, so it greatly lessened their search time.
As to not affect the construction of the stronghold, they moved to a distant place to train. For their initial steps, they could use the power of their laws, allowing them to float in the sky, but after thinking about how they used to be able to fly, they knew they had a long road.
Floating in the sky, they were either meditating, or standing still, or dancing with their hands and legs, or muttering chants, all of them had their different styles.
"I found it!"
An exclamation came out, which instantly attracted everyone else.
On his fingertip was a bean sized light dot, which released a gentle orange light aura. When he moved his finger lightly, countless orange light dots would sprinkle out one after another, it was a pretty scene. The light dots that resembled rain kept on changing, causing people who were watching to be dazzled.
The people around him could not help but feel envy towards him, this martial artist trained in laws relating to light, and as light energy was the densest in their location, it was not strange for him to gain enlightenment first.
Everyone's morale became boosted, as long as one person had succeeded, it meant that the path they were taking was right.
Tang Tian watched the energy undulation dissipating from the light dot, and could not help but scratch his chin. ~That undulation isn't weak at all~, he thought to himself, then understood why. By controlling energy with laws, it took half the effort but double the results, and as their comprehension of laws was extremely profound, as long as they found the knack to doing it, their battle capabilities would soar.
Tang Tian suddenly thought that the Desolate City could be defended.
Previously, he did not have that much of a good impression for the Desolate City, although its energy was extremely thin, it was still not the Sin Domain. The Honorable Martial Continent's martial artists would not be weakened by much, but the Sin Domain martial artists would be weakened much more. Defending at the Sin Door would be much easier, compared to the Desolate City. As long as they destroyed the Honorable Martial Stronghold, the Sin Door and Sin Domain had practically no difference, and the Honorable Martial martial artists that went in would be seeking death.
Most importantly, according to Bing's plan, he needed to quickly destroy the Honorable Martial Continent from within, which required flexibility, thus they could not afford to defend a stronghold.
But when he saw that the Sin Domain Army had a break through, Tang Tian started to consider the possibility.
~If there is a stronghold at the back, then there would truly be a needle in their back, the Honorable Martial Continent will definitely be unable to tolerate it and will try to find a way to destroy it.~
~That also meant that the Desolate City would attract a great number of Armies. By attracting them, wouldn't that mean the inside of Honorable Martial Continent would be even emptier?~
Tang Tian scratched his chin, his eyes released a deceitful light.
He could not think of too profound plans, but all of this added up was something that he found relatively executable. ~How can I make the Desolate City become invulnerable to attack?~
Tang Tian who had the deceitful light in his eyes while scratching his chin, racked his brains, crack crack crack. He then thought as though he heard countless gear teeth releasing the cracking friction sounds, and the rust falling like snow. But after he thought hard for a long period of time, luckily for him, the heavens never turned their backs on diligent people, he thought of a great plan - Hand the problem over to intelligent people!
He turned and looked at Du Xin Yu: "How do you think we can defend the Desolate City?"
Du Xin Yu had long considered the problem, and said calmly: "It is actually not difficult to defend the Desolate City, we only need time, and when brother and the rest finds the way to control energy, the Desolate City will become harder and harder to be attacked. We have the advantage in territory, and behind us, we can obtain the endless support of the Sin Domain, so we can rest easy without worries."
"We lack in time." Tang Tian spoke honestly: "We will be moving out in a week. Heaven's Road and the Southern Alliance are now facing immense pressure."
Du Xin Yu was not surprised, as an outstanding general herself, she knew that losing a city was not important, the main point was to obtain victory in the overall situation. Once they move out and leave the Desolate Continent, they would definitely surprise the Honorable Martial Continent, and the Desolate City would enter the sights of the Honorable Martial Continent.
"Then we can give up Desolate City and focus on guarding the Sin Door." Du Xin Yu said calmly.
"But I hope that the Desolate City can attract the attention of the enemies, the more armies, the better." Tang Tian spoke honestly.
Du Xin Yu understood what Tang Tian meant, she thought for a moment, then shook her head: "It is not feasible. Without breaking through, we lack the capabilities to resist the Honorable Martial Continent. The Desolate City is a Sin Domain type stronghold, although we can unleash some use for it, but its abilities are greatly weakened. We are not in the Sin Domain."
A flash of light suddenly flashed past Tang Tian's mind, he spoke anxiously: "Say that one more time!"
"What?" Du Xin Yu was startled, but she repeated her entire sentence out one more time.
When Du Xin Yu said that "We are not in Sin Domain", Tang Tian clapped his hands, his face revealing an uncontrollable joy: "That's right, this isn't the Sin Domain!"
Du Xin Yu had a look of suspicion, she did not understand what it meant, they were truly not in Sin Domain.
"This isn't Sin Domain, so we can make it the Sin Domain!"
Tang Tian's words were truly forever shocking.
Du Xin Yu was startled, she thought that she had heard it wrongly, and asked: "Transform the Desolate Continent into Sin Domain?"
"That's right!" Tang Tian thought that his miraculous idea was truly pleasing.
~Haha, only the godlike young lad can truly think of such a genius idea!~
"That's impossible." Du Xin Yu shook her head as she regained her calm.
Tang Tian replied with please: "You will know when the time comes."
With that, he turned and walked towards the Null Division barracks. Du Xin Yu followed him without hesitation, seeing Tang TIan so confident, she felt extremely curious. How could such an absurd idea of transforming Desolate Continent into Sin Domain happen?
A group of people flew through the vast Desolate Continent.
"In front of us is a valley, and it should conform to the request."
Wen Kang pointed ahead, the valley was faintly discernible.
"Let's go!" Liang Qiu did not beat about the bush and directly led his team over to the valley.
It was barren without any signs of life, who knew how many years had it been since the last human had stepped in the location.
Liang Qiu quickly chose a good location and took out a star treasure. It was a silver star treasure of the Pisces Constellation, and two vivid and lifelike silver fishes that were connected at their heads and tails started to move about.
The star treasure suddenly lit up with a dazzling light aura, and the energy around started to surge into the treasure. In the blink of the eye, a large energy vortex formed, and all the rocks and sand started to move in the valley, causing the other members to be forced out of the valley.
Wen Kang watched as the energy vortex formed like a tornado, and was at a loss for words.
~Where exactly did these group of people come from?~
He was called to the Null Division to act as a guide. Since he had already surrendered, he did not have any heart to resist, and decided to act as the guide. But when he stepped into the Null Division barracks, it was as if he was struck by a spell and was dumbstruck.
Spirit objects, spirit objects that were worth cities, released beautiful light auras and splendid undulations.
And when these spirit objects, that were worth cities, appeared one after another in front of him, piling to the size of a mountain, the impact it had on him was something he had never felt before.
In that moment, Wen Kang thought he was looking at a golden Desolate Continent brimming with radiant coins.
His mind was in a blank as he watched as the pile of star treasures was handed to every single member of the Null Division. Each of them had one, causing Wen Kang to lost the ability to think.
It was not only him, his comrades that had worked with him for many years were equally lost.
In the half hour, Wen Kang and them were stunned right in that spot, in the blankness and silence. When they gradually regained to their senses, the piles of spirit objects had disappeared, causing them to feel pain.
Even they did not understand why they were feeling pain, when it was not theirs to begin with…..
The pain lasted for a second, when they were scared silly by Tang Tian's plan.
"Everyone only has one mission, and that is to use the star treasure in your hand, to absorb all the energy in the Desolate Continent! Not one bit of energy must remain! But, of course, relying on the star treasures in your hands alone is definitely not enough. But do not worry, I will prepare even more star treasures for you! One week, We only have one week, Everyone is responsible for their own region, and there must be no corners left. Move out!"
The Desolate Continent's Great Remodelling Plan, caused Wen Kang and the rest to be so frightened they started to pee in their pants.
~This….this is too preposterous!~
~To sweep clean every bit of energy in a continent, oh my god, which maniac would be able to think of such a crazy idea, and would actually implement it?~
Even Du Xin Yu who was initially calm became stunned at that moment.
The Null Division spread out like beans, bringing their star treasures to every corner of Desolate Continent. One after another, energy vortices formed in the vast Desolate Continent, appearing endlessly.
The Desolate Continent which had a thin energy, although it was the opposite of what the Sacred Saint Galaxy usually had, but it still had more energy than any constellation of Heaven's Road. But under the crazy absorption of the Star Treasures, in just a day, the Desolate Continent's energy concentration dropped by 20%.
It was too crazy!
And when they thought it was crazy enough, the second batch of star treasures were brought over.
Then the third, then the fourth…..
The Desolate Continent's energy concentration plummeted at a visible rate.
Everyone was so scared to the point that they resembled quails that had been caught by their necks.

"Did you say Tang Tian suddenly returned? And that he has ordered an absurd amount of monsters?"
Clan Elder asked, by his side, Liu Ya Zhi and Sean had serious faces, they obviously viewed the return of Tang Tian as extremely important.
Liu Ya Zhi and Sean were extremely serious towards Tang Tian. Lei Ang might be powerful, but the Lion King was old, and thus to the two of them, the future Temple only had one enemy, and that was Tang TIan, the one hailed as the Godlike Young Lad!
The Ursa Major Constellation wielded extraordinary power, but what made Clan Elder An feel real fear was the enthusiasm and vitality displayed by the Ursa Major Constellation, which other constellations never had. The Twelve Ecliptic Palaces were lethargic and old, but the Ursa Major Constellation was like a young man brimming with blood and energy, and could do anything.
The old Temple, which was the current Honorable Martial Constellation, never lost their cautiousness towards the Ursa Major Constellation. So any reports that was related to Ursa Major Constellation would be reported to Clan Elder An at first notice.
"Yes, Master. According to the reports sent from Three Spirits City, Tang Tian suddenly returned the day before yesterday, and he shook his arms above a tower and announced his return." The manager in charge of the intelligence spoke respectfully: "On the second day, Three Spirits City's bronze hall sent out the highest grade urgent mission, to purchase Monsters. Their time limit is one week!"
"One week?" Sean's eyes constricted: "Could it be that he is about to take action?"
"This subordinate is useless, and could not dig up anything further." The manager immediately replied.
Everyone looked at each other, to have such a tight timing, it was for sure that they were about to take action!
"Why Monsters?" Liu Ya Zhi did not understand: "I have studied on this model of mechanical spirits weapon before, their fighting capabilities are rather unorthodox, and have their own knacks, but there are even better mechanical spirit weapons in Three Spirits City, they have extremely high quality mechanical martial artists as well."
The manager started to perspire in cold sweat, he anxiously replied: "This subordinate was also extremely curious, so I have sent people to probe around, but up till now, there has been no reports."
At this time, the atmosphere in the meeting room had become rather stifling.
Ever since Tang Tian went missing, the Ursa Major Constellation had become more reserved and did not launch attacks. The Temple only had to face the pressure given by the Leo Constellation, and only with the pressure on them lessening did they dare to launch the brazen remodelling of the Pisces Constellation. But now, Tang Tian had suddenly returned and even sent out such a large order, giving them an immense pressure.
It was not their first time crossing swords with Tang Tian.
To them, Tang Tian was far more dangerous than Lei Ang, the Lion King was ferocious, but his actions were predictable. But for Tang Tian, he was unconstrained with style, everything that occurred that had to do with him were inconceivable and unclear, but he always defeated his enemies. After that, only when the dust settled, would they realized that Tang Tian would end up being the victor.
Clan Elder An subconsciously patted the hand support on his chair and said: "This Tang Tian is extremely cunning and has profound schemes. He usually plans ahead and executes things at the last minute, his movements are definitely thoroughly planned out prior. Most probably, they have already completed their preparations and have definitely premeditated it for a long time. We must be on our guard at all times and be careful. Send out the order, cancel all the recent movements and get all the various armies to be on high alert."
Sean and Liu Ya Zhi replied.
"Intelligence Department, I want all of you to stay fixated on Tang Tian. Use whatever methods you have, I want to know what Tang Tian is thinking!" Clan Elder An said gravely.
"Yes!" The report manager immediately replied.
"Monsters?" The imposing Lion King's eyes flashed with a look of doubt, he thought about the mechanical spirit weapons that had left a deep impression in him. After the rage with the monsters, the military generals of Leo Constellation had spent a great deal of time researching Monster. Ultimately, they understood what category of people was the monsters aimed towards.
~But why Monsters?~
That was what everyone was curious about.
Tang Tian's great fanfare was definitely some sort of plot. Although both parties were to a certain degree allies, but they still acted independently. Lion King Lei Ang or Tang Tian were not people willing to be under someone else. Lei Ang and Tang Tian had crossed paths before, and Lei Ang also had some restraining fear towards Tang Tian.
"Go take a look first." Lei Ang said: "Send a few people to ask around in Three Spirits City."
"Then what about [Plan Roar]?" Andre raised his head and looked at his father.
"Wait til we hav clarifi[Plan ed on this." Lei Ang did not hesitate at such a sensitive time[Plan ,to put [ time, Plan Roar]"copyright-obfuscation"> incite into [Plan effect would incite a series of reactions which was npredictable.
"Yes." Everyone complied, they all thought it was safer that way.
Exactly how many Monsters did Tang Tian need? How many sets of Monsters could Three Spirits City produce in a week? No one knew about this, but it had attracted the eyes of everyone in Heaven's Road. Three Spirits City's manufacturing capability was directly related to the Ursa Major Constellations' fighting potential. And to produce so many monsters, when placed in the hands of the best mechanical martial artists that resided in the Ursa Major Constellation, the power that they could unleash cannot be looked down on, so who was Tang Tian planning to use it on?
The entire Heaven's Road had their eyes on Three Spirits City.
The Heaven's Road that was masked in the flames of war actually landed in a temporary peace and calm. The various powers had stopped what they were doing and had raised their caution. With Tang Tian, the man hailed as [ obtain The Godlike Young Lad]"copyright-obfuscation"> was , who had an astonishing perfect record, as long as he participated in any battle, regardless of how it had began, ultimately the one who would win and obtain the most benefits would still be him.
The Ursa Major Constellation wanted to use expansion to resist the Honorable Martial Constellation's pressure?
That was the main talk of the town, which was viewed as the only viable option for the Ursa Major Constellation. If the Ursa Major Constellation did not expand, and wait for the Honorable Martial Constellation to completely absorb the four Ecliptic Palaces, then the Ursa Major Constellation would lose all hope.
The Ursa Major Constellation only had one opportunity.
The terrifying order that was sent out posed a question to the entire Heaven's Road, where and who was Tang Tian's blade aimed at?
In time, Heaven's Road actually had everyone afraid for themselves.
The entire Three Spirits City was in full operation mode, countless materials converged and flowed into the city. The fiery red furnaces had dyed the sky red, the incessant sounds of machines and labor at work filled every corner of the city.
"This is the fourth batch of star treasures." Pi Pa spoke with excitement: "they have different ranks and different degrees of upgrades, the majority of them are silver star treasures with signs of turning gold. At the moment, 22 star treasures have completely become gold rank."
22 gold rank star treasures, that was an extremely alluring wealth.
The military generals around Tang Chou all revealed looks of excitement.
22 Gold Rank star treasures accumulated a substantial amount of wealth that could influence the situation of the war. If they used the gold rank star treasures to refine spirit treasures, it would greatly increase the strength of the Saint Unit. Saints possessed the highest level of fighting capabilities and could turn the tide on the battlefield.
There were very few gold rank star treasures, and even in the Twelve Ecliptic Palaces, they had very few themselves, and the gold rank star treasures were viewed as the most powerful force in the various constellations, and were rarely used. The more stable the constellation, the less they would use it. Only all of the wavering constellations who could not protect their own gold rank treasures would start using them.
Tang Chou carefully inspected the star treasures expressionlessly.
But he was immensely shocked by the results. His eyes were not fixated or lured by the 22 gold rank star treasures, although they were truly good things and could raise their fighting capabilities. But the entire situation could not be turned with just 10 or 100 gold rank star treasures.
What truly made Tang Chou excited was that he saw that the plan that Tang Tian had suggested, to use the Sacred Saint Galaxy to provide to the Ursa Major Constellation, was truly possible.
It was a plan that could truly deeply affect the entire situation.
"We can send these star treasures to the front lines first." Pi Pa laughed and said.
The originally excited military generals became even more excited, they so badly wanted to pounce on the treasures.
Tang Chou suddenly shook his head: "No, seal them up first, and increase the level of secrecy."
The military generals were stunned, they could not believe their own ears, they received the biggest pressure as they were at the frontlines, and the Honorable Martial Constellation armies were getting harder and harder to fight against. If the batch of star treasures equipments were to sent to the frontlines, it could greatly relieve their pressure.
Pi Pa was surprised as well, but she quickly understood Tang Chou's plan: "General, are you planning to give the enemies a big surprise?"
"If we want to play, we shall play it big." Tang Chou's eyes revealed a look of craziness: "When we have enough star treasures to completely equip the entire army, then we will change all of them."
Sssssi, all of his subordinates could not help but take deep breaths, ~The master is truly going big!~
But upon thinking of that majestic sight, all of them became immensely agitated. That's right, if they were to reveal their ability to increase the star treasures, not only would it increase the caution of their enemies, but it would affect their influx of star treasures.
Although the Ursa Major Constellation itself could produce many star treasures, it was not enough, and could not completely supply their armies. Once the other constellations obtained the information, they would definitely control the outflow of star treasures, and the price of the star treasures would increase.
"Can the front lines hold on?" Pi Pa asked with concern.
"Don't worry about it." Tang Chou said indifferently.
Pi Pa then thought about something, then revealed a smile: "No matter, very quickly, the pressure on all of you will lessen."
"Why?" Tang Chou asked, and the military generals were immediately focused on her.
Pi Pa laughed: "Considering the time, Bell should have sent the letter to the Scorpio Constellation?"
"What about the Scorpio Constellation?" Tang Chou started to think.
On the training grounds.
Screw was out of sorts, who knew what he was thinking.
But Colin was excited: "Master, do you think we will participate in the war?"
The news of the Bronze Hall releasing the urgent mission had long spread. Although everyone could not grasp the Master's plan, but they all knew that the astonishing amount of monsters would be used to fight. When talking about Monsters, their Monster Unit was known in the entire base.
Ever since Colin managed to unleash the potential of Monster, Three Spirits City had specially built up an army that used the Monsters, and Screw was the one guiding them.
Colin was completely filled with excitement: "When using Monsters, how can they not include us?"
Screw was startled, that question had quickly flew into his mind.
~When using monsters, how can they not include us?~
That phrase seemed to have jolted his empty memories, and vague images continued to appear. The blurred faces, the faintly discernible broken mechanic weapons, the smoke that pervaded the air……
~And the faint voice that seemed to come and go like the wind, it is familiar yet unfamiliar, who is it?~
"....Spanner…..where is the spanner….."
".....Brat, you better not die, Captain, you better not die….."
"......Southern Cross Army, advance!"
His body trembled incessantly, and tears flowed down uncontrollably.
~Why? Why do I feel so terrible? I can't remember anything anymore, but why do I feel so terrible?~
~Us…..it was us together….. Wu wu wu….. But…..~
~All of you…..where are all of you now…..~
