Within a hundred miles there was no need to carry out treatment, except for a few big shots, there were no more living beings left. Afterwards, the surviving Jiedan realm disciples had started to receive treatment. Furthermore, people had begun to get spontaneously rescued.
Several of the big shots appeared and everyone's panic calmed. There were several Dacheng realm elders who had been in seclusion and almost never appeared. It also brought calmness to the Greatest Heaven Sect. Regardless of the big wind and rain, if these ancestors were okay, then the Greatest Heaven Sect could remain safe and sound.
The Greatest Heaven Sect was like a conglomerate family. Due to the large scale of the explosion radiating from the original mountain gate hospitality, to hundreds of miles outside, even the square was directly destroyed. At least thousands of innocent rogue cultivators and other martial art disciples in the city were also affected.
For the Greatest Heaven Sect, this explosion was simply a terrible terrorist attack. When several elders settled the fears of the disciples in the sect, they were scheduled to start to save the wounded and dying. A day had already passed.
The preparation of statistics and operations regarding the saved people lasted for a whole month. The result of counting statistics made a few high-level members of the Greatest Heaven Sect directly spit out blood.
Because the explosion had occurred at the reception area of the sect, the original mountain gate, not far, there was the residence of the outer sect disciples. Going further was the residences of the inner sect disciples.
Within five hundred miles of the explosion, the whole army of disciples and slaves below the foundation stage did not leave a mouthful of breathable light. This number had already reached tens of thousands.
Although the figures were large, they were all below the foundation stage, which did not seem to have much impact on the strength of the Greatest Heaven Sect. However, this meant that the backup force of the sect had been completely annihilated. Fortunately, the Greatest Heaven Sect lost tens of thousands of disciples with qualifications for practicing overnight. For at least a hundred years, the Greatest Heaven Sect would not be able to accept it.
Disciples who had been under the foundation realm had also suffered a lot of casualties. After the statistical count, the casualties of disciples in the foundation realm numbered more than 2,000.
This figure, although not a big number for a big sect like the Greatest Heaven Sect, it was still close to more than a quarter of all the foundation realm disciples of the Pure Yang Palace. In perspective of Pure Yang Palace, such loss would definitely be devastating.
Strictly speaking, the strength of the Greatest Heaven Sect was not based on the disciples of the foundation realm, but the masters above the Jiedan realm.
In the ordinary times, within the gates of the sect, there would be no masters other than the masters of the Dacheng realm.
The problem was that to ensure that the welcoming array and formation would not be affected by mistakes, several of the big shots were sent out together. Four Yuanying realm ancestors had been sent with 20 Jiedan masters each to take care of alerting surrounding areas.
Even if it was the Yuanying realm ancestors, under the protection of several masters of the Dacheng realm, the distance was still not very much, it was impossible to resist the power of the explosion. At that time, the four Yuanying ancestors and eighty Jiedan realm masters directly turned into ash.
Take the Pure Yang Palace as an example. The four Yuanying ancestors were already half of the Yuanying ancestors in the sect. The eighty Jiedan realm masters, were at least one-fifth of their amount. At this time, these served as half the power of Pure Yang Palace.
Even the Greatest Heaven Sect was distressed over their lose. When was a Yuanying realm ancestor so easy to cultivate? Their loss numbered four, which was not counting the 80 Jiedan realm masters. Who could be assigned responsibility on this occasion, which one was not the core disciple of the sect's absolute trust? All of them were folded in at once.
This was only the loss of personnel. The number of destroyed houses was not less than 100,000, even the foundation of the Mountain Protecting Great Formation had been destroyed by more than half.
When the loss of these properties was so devastating for the Greatest Heaven Sect, then the loss of some ancient books would make them even more painful.
The branch housing the jade slips of basic knowledge related to alchemy for the quasi-outer and outer disciples was destroyed with the explosion. Even a Hidden Pavilion of scriptures for inner disciples was destroyed with all the jade slips.
Although the ruin was only a few low-level cultivation methods and various basic knowledge, those methods could still be rewritten by memory. But not everyone had the abnormal memory like Yang Chen's which could also restore some of the cultivation and miscellaneous other books that were referenced in the past.
And there were some cultivation methods, obviously no one had practiced, which meant that they were lost for good.
Less than half of Greatest Heaven Sect’s basic cultivation methods remained. These were painstakingly collected from various places in various ways by the disciples of the sect. Still most had been destroyed. The inheritance of the foundation directly lost more than half of its total knowledge.
Even if the Greatest Heaven Sect started recruiting outer sect disciples, due to the loss of the many disciples and ancient books, they had to extract some from the servants who had not been damaged to cultivate them. How could they let the inner-sect disciples of the foundation realm to take over the outer sect disciples?
Even without inheritance, the new outer sect disciples may even face the embarrassment of having to do some chores themselves, because there were not enough slaves to help them.
However, even if all these issues were resolved, the Greatest Heaven Sect still must face another problem. Because of this explosion, almost all the outer sect disciples were killed. Would anyone now dare to join the Greatest Heaven Sect, a martial art sect that could not protect their own outer sect disciples? Despite the strength of the Greatest Heaven Sect, it was still the leader among the first-class sects.
These losses had not yet calculated another issue, the reputation of the Greatest Heaven Sect. When the Pure Yang Palace Gate was destroyed, it was almost immediately pulled up by the means of Thunder and Thousand Miles. The reputation was not reduced, but it was even more prosperous. What kind of means does the Greatest Heaven Sect need to use now to save their lost reputation?
Such a huge loss, even if it was a sect as strong as the Greatest Heaven Sect, it would definitely hurt. During the statistical process of this period, several senior executives faced the reports of losses accumulated every day. They could only use a metaphor to describe their feelings, and that was that they wanted to cry but couldn't find any tears.
In the high-level collective of the Greatest Heaven Sect, the hatred of the perpetrator who broke the consciousness clone had reached its maximum. The news that the Greatest Heaven Sect's gate was destroyed by a crazy explosion had spread throughout the world of cultivation.
