Chapter 417 Tang Li Xue’s Plan!
Chapter 417 Tang Li Xue’s Plan!
While Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy pondered their next move carefully, the three virtuous sects' teams already tried to pressure the other cultivators' teams to give up and hand over their ancient jade emblem's parts.
But the overall numbers of other cultivators' teams were more than twice the total of the three virtuous sects' teams, so there was no way they would give up to the three virtuous sects' teams without fighting.
The situation became really tense when all of the cultivators started to unsheathe their weapons. Thick murderous intent permeated the surrounding atmosphere as they were ready to fight to the death.
Tang Li Xue shook her head in disagreement with their will to fight to the end.
Although their number was more than twice as much as three virtuous sects' teams, but the battle prowess of elite core disciples from three virtuous sects was more than enough to make up for that.
Every elite core disciple of the three virtuous sects definitely possessed extremely high martial prowess, and each of them could even beat five rogue cultivators at the same level of cultivation as them.
(Rogue Cultivators: Cultivators that did not join any sect or faction. They might be failed to join because their potential was too low, and they failed in the trial to join, or maybe they were already too old to join.)
Their extremely high martial prowess was due to the hundred thousand years accumulated martial inheritance of five virtuous sects.
They probably have millions of different martial art techniques with different grades.
The core disciples of five virtuous sects definitely learned the strong martial art techniques that suited them the best from their own respective sect, while the rogue cultivators could only learn what they might be accidentally found or from their family inheritance.
But it was also the reason why this chance to enter Inheritance Ground Tablet and get the martial inheritance from powerful cultivators was very very important for the rogue cultivators.
This chance was so important for them that all of these rogue cultivators were ready to risk their lives for it.
However, their will to fight against the core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sects was no different than suicide in Tang Li Xue's eyes.
'Hei, stop daydreaming! They already started to kill each other! What should we do right now? Should we take this chance to stealthy charge into the battlefield with [Talisman of Stealthy +3] and steal some ancient jade emblems from any random cultivators?' Tang Li Xue's perfect copy used their mental connection to ask.
The real Tang Li Xue rolled her eyes and replied: 'Do you really think those core disciples from the Five Virtuous Sects are a bunch of naive fools? There are many core disciples in the Five Virtuous Sects, and I am sure that they already choose their team's lineup carefully, so their team should be all-rounded with some people.'
'Even if we charged into there in the invisible state, we will definitely get detected in an instant by those core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sects. What should we do then? Ask for forgiveness from them? Seduce that Ye Zhen so he would stand up for us?' The real Tang Li Xue reprimanded her perfect copy.
The mouth of Tang Li Xue's perfect copy became speechless, and she pouted her pink lips in frustration.
Tang Li Xue silently observed the battlefield and analyzed the overall martial prowess of those core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sects.
Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy began to carefully simulate several possible plans and the success rate of those plans in their minds.
'I have [Water Mirage], [Snow Dance Step], Transcendence State of [Crouching Tiger Claw] and [Drifting Cloud Palms], buff talismans to strengthen myself and my newly made talismans too… I can also use my equipment skills such as [Shadow Flash] and [Final Strike]. If I got cornered, I can even use [Flame of Pride] or assimilate with [Phoenix of Pride]. Not bad... But I should try my best to not use [Flame of Pride] or assimilate with [Phoenix of Pride] unless in the life-threatening situation.'
Even after considering everything she had, Tang Li Xue only has 30% confidence in taking the ancient jade emblem from the Five Virtuous Sects' teams.
Of course, she could also try to join Immortal Sword Sect's team since her relationship with Ye Zhen was quite good, but she really did not want to beg to join them for getting the ancient jade talisman for free unless she did not have any other choice.
'Maybe… we should just give up and look for another team to snatch. Those elite disciples from the Five Virtuous Sects are really too strong for us to handle now.' Tang Li Xue's perfect copy suggested when she started to lose her confidence after she saw how those elite core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sects fighting.
The battle was almost over in only a few minutes with the overwhelming victory of the core disciples' teams.
Most of the rogue cultivators already got killed or lied down on the grassy ground while groaning in pain, while no one from the teams of elite core disciples from Five Virtuous Sects was injured.
'This is really too tragic to see…' Tang Li Xue thought as she felt really sorry for those rogue cultivators' teams.
Then Tang Li Xue managed to catch a glimpse of several other core disciples gave parts of the ancient jade emblem they managed to find from the rogue cultivators to their respective team leaders such as Meng Ying from White Crane Sect, Ye Zhen from Immortal Sword, and one more elite core disciple should be the team leader from Oracle Mountain Sect.
'So they let their team leaders hold all of the ancient jade emblem's parts! That is great! It will make us easier to snatch it!' Tang Li Xue's perfect copy exclaimed in delight.
The real Tang Li Xue nodded in agreement.
Letting the strongest cultivators amongst them held all of the ancient jade emblems might sound reasonable, but it also gave an opening for Tang Li Xue to exploit.
She already formulated a pretty good plan to snatch the ancient jade emblems based on this fact.
'Let's wait for a few more hours until the night comes before executing our plan. You can make more [Hidden Exploding Talisman] and [Stealth Illusion Talisman] while I will keep trailing them carefully.' The real Tang Li Xue instructed to her perfect copy.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy rolled her eyes, but she still decided to start making more [Hidden Exploding Talisman], [Talisman of Stealthy], and [Stealth Illusion Talisman] since all of these talismans were crucial for their plan.
It did not take long for the teams of core disciples from the Five Virtuous Sects to realize that someone actually observed and followed them.
Tang Li Xue did not know what method they used to detect her, but she immediately realized it when she saw the change in their movements.
'Fortunately, they only seem to be able to detect that they are currently being observed or followed by the others, but they still cannot sense the location of the person who observes or follows them.' Tang Li Xue deduced in her mind.
However, Tang Li Xue still frowned deeply as her worry had also grown.
The core disciples' teams from the Five Virtuous Sects might be cannot detect or sense the location of the person who observes or follows them, but they would certainly become much warier because of it.
'Sigh… it will certainly become harder for me to snatch their ancient jade emblems like this. Oh, well... the white fog here greatly restricted my [Spirit Perception] and make me only be able to sense in radius two or three steps. I am sure they are also in the same condition as me, so my plan should have work.' Tang Li Xue thought to assure herself.
In a few hours, the core disciples' teams from the Five Virtuous Sects climbed higher toward the peak of Cang Yang Mountain while kept robbing the ancient jade emblem from the other teams on their way.
Tang Li Xue guessed that each of their team leaders should already hold more than three complete ancient jade emblems.
After the sky turned dark, the core disciples of the Five Virtuous Sects already climbed quite far and probably almost halfway to the peak of Cang Yang Mountain. They decided to take some rest now while waiting for the other teams to catch up with them, so they could take the ancient jade emblem from those other teams.
'They even set the formation to hide and protect their camp! What should we do now? Should we still carry on with our plan? I still think that it is better for us to just target the other teams rather than them. They are too powerful and dangerous for our current strength.' Tang Li Xue's perfect copy tried to persuade.
But the real Tang Li Xue shook her head and replied: 'I come here to hone myself and preparing myself for the more dangerous Fox Hunting Festival, so why do I need to avoid hardship and only choose the easier method. All right! Stop your whining and go now!'
'You say something like hone yourself as if you will do it yourself, but you still pushed me to do it in the end!' Tang Li Xue's perfect copy complained.
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy focused her mind as she tried to lock on Meng Ying's shadow and prepared to use [Shadow Flash] to instantly teleported to Meng Ying's shadow.
Why Tang Li Xue's perfect copy could lock at Meng Ying's shadow when they were quite far away from each other right now?
It was because Tang Li Xue's perfect copy already put the [Tracker] from her [Mapping Sense] skill to Meng Ying when she exchanged move with Meng Ying in the tavern before!
