Chapter 460: Perfect calculations


Translated by: La0o9

Let’s rewind time a bit.

On another side.

Just as Shannu appeared in front of Wang Hong Dao.

Gu Qing Shan brought Qing Rou and Wan Er to the lowest layer of the floating island.

Every formation that kept Guang Yang sect running was here.

“Being able to cover an entire island always required large-scaled formations” Qing Rou told him.

“Under normal circumstances, at least three formation users are needed to control such a large formation” Wan Er added.

Gu Qing Shan nodded and stared at the layers upon layers of large-scaled formations.

His gaze became stern.

“We’re lucky that we’re on the inside of the defensive formation, otherwise breaking in from outside would’ve been a nightmare” Gu Qing Shan commented.

The formations of this world were simply too powerful.

Formations here were frequently layered upon one another, and to further increase efficiency, every single one of them were layered in the dozens.

These defensive formations formed a series of successive traps that can’t be arbitrarily broken.

They were strong enough to withstand the attacks of a Cryptic realm cultivator.

The defensive formation layers were put around to surround a large cluster of formations inside.

They were formation clusters that could fix and replenish power to other large-scale formations.

A total of 36 automated formations that could repair varying degrees of damage, all ready for action at a moment’s notice.

If one formation was sabotaged or destroyed, one or more of the corresponding 36 automated formations will activate by themselves.

All the formations will concentrate their effort to automatically repair any damaged formations.

This was the demonstration of this world’s level of formation.

Of course, with Gu Qing Shan’s current knowledge of formation, he could barely manage to dispel these formations.

With enough time, he’ll be able to dismantle all the formations here.

But ‘enough time’ was a lot, it could be a few days or a few dozen days.

There was no time for that right now.

Observing all the formations, Gu Qing Shan formulated a plan.

He turned to look at the two girls: “There’s something I need you to do”

Qing Rou and Wan Er spoke in unison: “Tell us, gongzi”

“With my current level of formations, I’ll probably be able to buy about 5 minutes”

“Five minutes?” Wan Er repeated, confused.

“That’s right, after the large-scaled quarantine formation is broken, these repair formations will probably need about 5 minutes to finish repairing”

“What should we do?” Qing Rou asked.

“Protect this place, do not let anyone get close and repair these formations within those 5 minutes”

“Yes! Leave it to us” Wan Er spoke.

“Be careful, gongzi” Qing Rou reminded him.


The two girls were looking straight at Gu Qing Shan.

Even now, they were still in disbelief.

What Gu Qing Shan needed to do next was completely outside of their understanding.

Gu Qing Shan walked straight into the cluster of formations.

He came in front of a particularly special formation.

The large-scale quarantine formation.

It was thanks to this that the realm demon couldn’t sense the cultivators’ spirit energy.

It was thanks to this that cultivators can cultivate safely.

Gu Qing Shan glanced at the formation.

A few dozen protective formations and repair formations were moving at the same time.

Only a formation user or Cryptic realm cultivator can sabotage this special formation.

Formation users know the most crucial points of this formation so they know how to break it from the inside.

While Cryptic realm cultivators are powerful enough that they can break through the protective formations and repair formations on the outside with brute force before moving to destroy the innermost quarantine formation.

But this would take more time.

Gu Qing Shan took out a small formation plate and connected it to the large-scale quarantine formation.

Very quickly, he got ahold of the formation’s crucial core.

After all, not only did he get the method to connect to Guang Yang sect’s formations from Wang Hong Dao’s secret room, he also had access to their formation plates.

Every formation easily accepted his access and control without resistance.

At a certain moment, Gu Qing Shan stopped.

“Time… there’s only 5 minutes” he whispered.

After 5 minutes, the large-scale spirit energy quarantine formation will repair itself.

Closing his eyes and making sure of the process, Gu Qing Shan began to circulate his spirit energy and form the necessary hand seal.

The entire large-scale formation suddenly started flowing in reverse

Boom!

The formation was destroyed.

Dong!
Dong dong dong!
Dong dong dong dong dong dong dong!

The intense and rapid drumming appeared.

The sect’s warning alarm drums.

This drumming came from an ancient mechanism that struck thousands of drums at once to create this sound.

Different from using formations or talismans to create the sound of warning, this type of battle drum caused people’s fighting spirit to boil more.

Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help listening to it.

Seeing that, Qing Rou told him: “Gongzi, this is Guang Yang sect’s war drum, it only resounds when they conquer another world or when they needed to protect their sect”

“Hm, what a heavy sound, it would’ve been easier on the ears if they had made it the sound of a bell instead”

Gu Qing Shan turned and waved at the two girls.

“I’ll leave this place to you”

“Don’t worry, gongzi” the two of them replied.

Gu Qing Shan nodded and ran as fast as he could.

He needed to get to where Shannu was.

For 5 minutes, no one could use spirit energy.

Even Wang Hong Dao couldn’t use his spirit energy.

Otherwise it would draw the attention of the realm demon.

In just 5 minutes, the quarantine formation will repair itself and become active again.

He has to kill Wang Hong Dao within these 5 minutes!

Dong! Dong! Dong! Dong!

The urging battle drums continued.

Wang Hong Dao was staring at Shannu without saying a word.

Within a few seconds, his thoughts had already moved too many times to count.

But in that short time, Wang Hong Dao already understood quite a few things.

“So you are Gu Qing Shan, I think Qi Yan must’ve died by your hands”
“You came from another world, you must have------”

“Let’s not waste anymore time, it’s time to battle now” Shannu cut him off.

“Why would we do that? There’s no need to fight to the death?” Wang Hong Dao spoke.

“More useless talk, more variables” Shannu answered.

Wang Hong Dao was stunned for a split second.

The words he just spoke before were now returned to him.

“Young man, you take things for granted…”

Wang Hong Dao muttered, still wanted to say something else.

Shannu just stepped forward, sword in hand.

She had decided to ignore whatever he wanted to say and just kill him on the spot!

Wang Hong Dao suddenly smiled: “Wait, I have one last thing I need to tell you”

Shannu just kept silent and began to sprint.

The distance between them was closing.

“Truthfully, I’ve been in this exact situation before”

Saying so, Wang Hong Dao clapped his hand.

His claps were even louder than the drums, echoing far across the floating island.

The realm demon’s unconscious offshoots didn’t react at all.

They only sense spirit energy, not sound.

A figure quickly rushed towards them like he was flying.

Under normal circumstances, any cultivator was able to do this.

But at the moment, no one can use even a speck of spirit energy.

So cultivators can’t possibly run that fast.

Unless----

Shannu stopped her feet.

She looked at the figure cautiously.

“Zhao Wu Chui…”

Shannu muttered.

Zhao Wu Chui, Virtualized realm Martial cultivator.

If you only consider bodily prowess, Martial cultivators are second to none.

This was undoubtedly common sense.

In a situation where spirit energy wasn’t usable, a great Martial cultivator like Zhao Wu Chui, through his sheer body strength and techniques can cause a lot of damage.

By simply running, Zhao Wu Chui’s speed was faster than a normal cultivator’s flying.

His figure dashed across the sky like a swallow.

Zhao Wu Chui softly landed in front of Wang Hong Dao.

Wearing a pair of dark-red gauntlets, he was topless, revealing this masculine body.

“Master, I’ve come”

Zhao Wu Chui knelt down and bowed.

Wang Hong Dao came forward and stroked Zhao Wu Chui’s head.

His gesture was similar to stroking a dog.

Wang Hong Dao spoke to Shannu: “Your thoughts are indeed excellent, without using spirit energy, by bodily prowess alone, my current body didn’t have an advantage”
“But now, I have a Martial artist specifically for this situation, and we’re two against one”

Wang Hong Dao smirked triumphantly.

Shannu shook her head: “Specifically for this situation? You’re lying, I don’t believe you’d be able to consider our plan so far ahead”

Wang Hong Dao laughed: “Long ago, when I had just only achieved Cryptic realm, I’ve thought about every situation that might pose a threat to me”

“Was it this current situation?” Shannu asked.

“Precisely”
Wang Hong Dao continued: “That’s why I found myself a Martial genius and helped him reach Virtualized realm, just to counter a situation just like today”

Even the indifferent Shannu couldn’t help but change her expression a bit.

After so many years, this was the first time she met such a person.

He had already thought of every threat and every situation that might pose a threat.

“So much calculations, what for? Are you that afraid of death?” Shannu couldn’t help but question.

He’s still trying to buy time?
Looks like he’s still planning something.
What is he planning?

Shannu stopped thinking further.

Because such matters weren’t worth her consideration.

Dong dong dong dong dong!
Dong dong dong dong dong dong dong!

The resounding drumming still continued, riling the fighting spirit of those that heard it to want to battle.

But Shannu stopped her sword and stood still.

A Virtualized realm Martial cultivator wasn’t someone she could stand against.

Not to mention Wang Hong Dao was still here.

The situation was now reversed.

Just as Wang Hong Dao said, they were two against one.

It was now her turn to buy time.

Buy time until Gu Qing Shan gets here.

Wang Hong Dao nonchalantly answered: “I’m not afraid of death, but unnecessary sacrifices are meaningless. This was the one thing I fully believed in ever since I started my cultivation”

While speaking, he was silently calculating.

According to Zhao Wu Chui’s intelligence, the other side doesn’t have many people.

Even if the other ‘Qi Yan’ sabotaged the quarantine formation, he couldn’t completely destroy it.
The dozens of repair formations will completely fix the large-scale quarantine formation in just a few minutes.
After that time, to keep the formation from working, the other ‘Qi Yan’ has to sabotage it again.
Otherwise, once I can use spirit energy again, it’ll be their deaths.
Furthermore, the art of formation isn’t something anyone can just learn.
Even if Qi Yan’s two maids are there, I know their background very well.
Both of them don’t know anything about formations.
That’s why, the other ‘Qi Yan’ must remain there.
The current situation will stay as two against one.
And not for long.
Zhao Wu Chui alone can kill him.
It’ll naturally be my win.

Wang Hong Dao continued: “My master saw through me, so regardless of how excellent I act, master wasn’t willing to teach me his true knowledge of the Sword and Blade”
“But he didn’t know, it’s because I’m so willing to be patient for so long that I can slowly calculate and plan for anything and everything”
“Even a powerful person like master died at my hands”

Shannu sighed, then couldn’t help but ask the thing she was curious about: “You said calculate this calculate that, did you never think you might have missed something?”

This time, it was Wang Hong Dao who was stunned.

What she said just now struck him really deeply.

He carefully thought about it for a few moments and spoke: “As long as it has to do with my life and death, I’ve calculated everything”

Saying that, Wang Hong Dao’s expression loosened.

“For the current situation, I’m sure I didn’t miss anything at all…”

That’s right.
Everything is under my control.
They can fight now.

He ordered: “Go, kill him”

“Yes”

Zhao Wu Chui moved with his order.
