After hearing this, Jiang Chen couldn’t help but frown. This was something that he had never thought before, but it was incomparably reasonable after thinking about it. The further away the territory, the more chaos there would be. Thus, it was only logical that there were plenty of competitions and alliances amongst the thirty plus cities.
“What is the cultivation base of those three men?” Asked Jiang Chen.
“Similar to Lascivious Young Master’s, mid Divine Immortal realm.” Said Chen Hui.
“Young Master Jiang, I’m afraid that we won’t be able to deal with them if the three of them come at the same time.” Said Huang Ying with concern.
“mid Divine Immortal realm?”
Jiang Chen’s tone was flat. What Huang Ying said was right. If the three of them really appeared at the same time, the situation would be troublesome. Given his current strength, dealing with a mid Divine Immortal expert was difficult enough. Even with Ah Da and Ah Er’s help, it would be impossible for him to fight three mid Divine Immortal opponents simultaneously.
Since this was said by Chen Hui and Li Si, Jiang Chen was almost certain that those three friends of Lascivious Young Master would certainly come and cause them trouble, and it wouldn’t be long before they came.
However, as a matter of fact, they should’ve already sensed the shockwave of the battle, but none of them sent any reinforcement. Judging from this, the relationship between Lascivious Young Master and the other three City Lords weren’t as good as it sounded. There was a saying that suited the situation in the Evil Abyss very well, Heaven would destroy those who didn’t look out for themselves. It was very common to have city raids, especially when a group of strangers had already planned to take over the city, but it was also common that if a group of people weren’t sure of their enemies’ overall strength, they would never make any advances.
That was why the three City Lords let Lascivious Young Master die than to emerge on the scene, but the news was going to be spread out soon. Once they learned about Jiang Chen’s cultivation base, the three of them would certainly choose to strike Fragrant Sky City and eliminate the new ruler.
The top priority right now was to have a countermeasure. Jiang Chen couldn’t afford to lose the territory he had just claimed, or else it would deal a huge blow to their morale. It would also affect his path of hegemony.
“What do you have in mind?” Big Yellow looked over at Jiang Chen.
“The Evil Clan.”
A hint of ruthlessness was revealed in his eyes. The only thing he could think of right now was the Evil Clan.
“You want to go to the Evil Clan? That’s too dangerous.” Big Yellow frowned.
“What? Going to the Evil Clan?”
Chen Hui, Li Si and the two girls exclaimed together and stared at Jiang Chen with surprise, not knowing why Jiang Chen would think of going to the Evil Clan. In the Evil Abyss, the name of the Evil Clan could make anyone tremble in fear. Anyone who encountered the Evil Clan would flee for their lives, but now, Jiang Chen was planning to go and look for them. When one chose to step into the territory of the Evil Clan, it was no different than seeking death.
“Young Master Jiang, the devils in the Evil Clan is way too ferocious. Plus, I don’t think our current situation has anything to do with them.” Said Huang Ying.
“That’s right, City Lord. Our top priority right now is to think of ways to deal with the other three City Lords instead of offending the Evil Clan.”
Said Chen Hui, puzzled by Jiang Chen’s idea.
“Chen Hui, Li Si, I want the two of you to go home first. Leave this matter to me.”
Jiang Chen dismissed the two experts. Feeling the resoluteness in Jiang Chen’s tone, they didn’t dare disobey it and immediately left the main hall.
“Sister Ying, Qingcheng, you should already feel tired by now. Have a rest at your room first. I still have things to discuss with Big Yellow.”
Jiang Chen shifted his gaze to Huang Ying and Yan Qingcheng.
The two girls were clueless about what Jiang Chen was going to do, but they knew they could never change his mind as he was a man with a firm mind. More importantly, given their current strength, they could never be of any help. To put it bluntly, they were the typical nuisance following Jiang Chen.
“Little Chen, do you really think of going to the Evil Clan?”
After the four of them left, Big Yellow asked.
“That’s right. I have just advanced to the early Heaven Immortal realm and even with the help of Ah Da and Ah Er, I won’t be able to fight the three mid Divine Immortal experts. The Evil Clan is neither demon nor devil, which gives me the advantage of suppressing them. As long as I’m able to edify a powerful mid Divine Immortal demonic devil, it will become very useful to me. After that, I won’t have any problems dealing with those three men anymore.”
Said Jiang Chen. This was the only countermeasure he could think of right now. There was a certain requirement while edifying devils. As he had already edified Ah Da and Ah Er, he could only edify one more mid Divine Immortal devil at best, but it would be extremely difficult for him to do so.
Jiang Chen had just advanced to the early Heaven Immortal realm and it was impossible for him to make another advancement temporarily. He couldn’t force the advancement by swallowing and refining demon souls anymore as his foundation had already been affected. If he continued to use this kind of method, the repercussion would be unimaginable.
“I will go with you.”
Big Yellow shook his tail in excitement. He was always very interested in dangerous and adventurous task. Only Jiang Chen and him had the guts to go to the Evil Clan.
“No, you can’t come with me. I don’t know when the three experts will strike the city. You have to stay here to defend it. Do you still remember the Five Elemental Tisura Formation that we used against Nan Bei Chao? We will deploy it together, then you, Ah Da and Ah Er and the other four will join forces to defend the city. I believe that all of you will be able to hold the three experts for two days with the formation. Although two days is only a short window of time for me, I will do my best to make it on time.”
Said Jiang Chen. The Five Elemental Tisura Formation was the best defensive grand formation. Big Yellow and him were able to deploy a perfect formation together. This happened during the war in Nebula Sect, where they were able to use the formation to defend against Nan Bei Chao’s attack.
In fact, apart from edifying a demonic devil, there was another method he could use – the Heavenly Dragon Combat Halberd, a powerful trump card left behind by Ouyang He.
In order to achieve its full power, the halberd had to be used with the Heavenly Dragon Nine Strikes, or else it would only drain the wielder’s energy. Now that he had advanced to the Heavenly Immortal realm, he could try cultivating the Heavenly Dragon Nine Strikes. At the most critical situation, this weapon could be his powerful and deadly trump card.
