Chapter 208: The Situation Was Grim
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Although the governor was a civil servant and did not have such high requirements for his martial cultivation.
A first-tier city still needed a certain amount of face.
Therefore, it was necessary to change to a great grandmaster.
It was a matter of face.
To the Du Tianyu, there was only a small loss, but the exchange was for the governor of a first-tier city.
That debt was simply too worthwhile.
There were other benefits brought about by the advancement of a city.
One example is it was said that the resources in the martial arts library would increase by adding some cultivation techniques that surpassed the level of a grandmaster.
Although most people might not be able to see it, they would not be able to learn it even if they saw it.
However, there were two differences between having it and not having it.
The problem of acting cool.
Apart from that, the number of martial artists would also increase by a large margin.
In the past, there were only three grandmasters who had stepped into the Xiantian realm in Jianghai city, and they were all at the weakest Xiantian first grade.
In the future, there would be more grandmasters and more sects in Jianghai city.
There would be more grandmasters than one could count with two hands.
Although it was not to the extent of saying that there were as many grandmasters as dogs and major sects everywhere, the increase in the number of high-level martial artists meant that the defense of Jianghai city would increase.
In another four years, there would be a beast calamity!
At that time, with so many martial arts experts protecting here, what was there to worry about
Apart from that, the city could also build a defensive formation.
When the star beasts attacked, they could directly block them from the outside.
There were also spiritual energy cannons and other good offensive items.
It could be said to be a complete change of weapons.
As for him, although he was no longer the governor, he could still do some other civilian work.
Any random civilian work in a first-tier city would not be lower than the previous small governor.
All of those huge changes were brought about by Senior Saber-sword Immortal.
That made Du Tianyus heart respect the Saber-sword Immortal even more.
“Du Tianyu, you should know that the main reason why the nine provinces developed Jianghai city into a first-tier city is because of Saber-sword Immortal.”
Du Tianyu nodded.
“I know about this.”
“The higher-ups still hope to contact the Saber-sword Immortal.
“After all, his power is too powerful.
For the nine provinces, he is an indispensable force.
“Of course, because of the incident with that fool from the Zhao family, we also know that the Saber-sword Immortal will not come out to meet people casually.
“Therefore, the higher-ups do not force you to find him.
You only need to try to contact him, and they will give you enough freedom.
“If you can contact him, you can directly tell him that as long as he is willing, any condition can be set, and the nine provinces will agree to it.
“In addition, if he wants to live in seclusion, we will definitely not disturb his life.”
Du Tianyu nodded.
It seemed that after experiencing that fool from the Zhao family, the nine provinces alliance had learned a lot.
However, he knew that it was the result of strength.
If the Saber-sword Immortal did not have the strength, the higher-ups might not look for him.
Even if they did find him, they would force him to listen to orders.
Now that they knew that the Saber-sword Immortal was very strong and had already reached the Xiantian ninth grade divine sect, they were much softer.
“Alright, I understand.
Ill try my best to think of a way to find Senior Saber-sword Immortal.
However, all of you should know that Senior Saber-sword Immortal has been refusing to show his face for such a long time.
“I feel that even if I look for him, I might not be able to find him.”
“Alright, then Ill have to trouble you.”
“Youre too polite.
Were all doing things for the country.”
After Du Tianyu left, the few of them began to discuss in secret.
“Can he find Senior Saber-sword Immortal”
“Even if its impossible, he has to find him.”.
That time, the pressure on the space battlefield was too great, and it could not bear the impact of the star beasts, so the beast calamity was likely to be brought forward.
That was the first time since the ancestral dragon unified the nine provinces that the beast calamity was brought forward.
The alliance still did not dare to casually tell the truth of the matter, for fear of causing panic.
The pressure on the alliance was really too great!
Not only was that Saber-sword Immortal very strong in battle, but his healing power was also unprecedented.
Some people in the nine provinces had already judged that his healing power had already surpassed all the healers in the nine provinces.
For the nine provinces, it was no different from life-saving water to quench their thirst.
With him, the nine provinces could guarantee that the martial arts experts would not be injured during the beast calamity and could maintain the battle for a period of time.
Apart from that, he also knew how to use arrays.
That was an even more priceless treasure!
It could be said that he was now a walking national treasure of great value in the nine provinces!
Moreover, even if he was not willing to come out now.
He could not possibly still be hiding during the beast calamity, right
Even if he could not help us, as long as he could protect Jianghai city, it would be a good thing.
“After all, after we expand Jianghai city into a first-tier city, even more humans will rush in.
He can at least protect a few more humans, right”
At the mention of the beast calamity, everyones expressions did not look too good.
The beast calamity that time might be unprecedentedly severe!
“Lets not just stand here.
There are still many things to do in the construction of Jianghai city.
In another hour, the array masters sent by Jingdu will come to Jianghai city and begin to set up the array.
“Lets go prepare some materials first, in case we dont have enough.”
On Ye Xiaos side, Yang Xi called him right after he finished planting the spiritual flowers.
Whats the matter”
“Supervisor, something bad has happened.
Have you received the news The library is going to cut staff and replace people again.”
Ye Xiao raised his eyebrows slightly and glanced at his phone.
He realized that Yang Xi had just sent him a message.
It was just that he had been busy and had not noticed it.
“I just saw it.
Whats going on Why is the library changing people again”
“I dont know either.
I heard that this time, all cultivation below Houtian fourth grade will be let go, leaving none behind.
Supervisor, your cultivation seems to be only Houtian third grade.
Can you hold on this time”
Ye Xiao said faintly,
“Im not sure either.
Wait for me to think about it later.
Ill hang up first.”
Yang Xi hung up the phone.
Ye Xiao was in deep thought as he rushed back.
The last time there was a change in the library, it had not been long before there was another change.
It was a little too fast.
If he remembered correctly, before he went to the Seaside Forest, the director had also said that the library might undergo another upgrade.
Could it be… That the level of the librarys expansion at that time was very high
Would there be the addition of imperial techniques
Thinking of that, Ye Xiao could not help but have a complicated look in his eyes.
The upgrade of the library represented the upgrade of Jianghai city.
That was because the level of the library and the city were complementary.
Why would Jianghai city upgrade so quickly
After experiencing so many hardships, what Jianghai city needed the most now was stability.
The nine provinces had made the pace so fast.
Some of it was beyond Ye Xiaos expectations.
Admittedly, they thought that Jianghai city had him, but he was not a god.
They could not build a city just for him, right
Building a first-tier city would gather a large number of martial artists to increase the strength of the city.
To say that it was built for the emperors bloodline holder was even more nonsense.
They could have taken Qin Yuyan to another place.
If they wanted to expand to protect Jianghai city, or gather more human forces…
Then recently, there was only one thing that could trigger that premise.
The beast calamity!
Ye Xiao was shocked by his own crazy thoughts.
‘It cant be
‘It cant be such a coincidence, right
He had read about it in the library before.
It was said in the book that the beast calamity happened once every 60 years.
It was caused by the martial arts experts of the space battlefield.
In order to alleviate the pressure of the space battlefield, they opened the defensive line and let in a portion of the star beasts.
It had never been said that it would be opened within 60 years.
Unless, the beast calamity that time was too strong, so strong that the space battlefield could not withstand it and had no choice but to open up the defense line in advance, forming the beast calamity.
In 2,000 years of time, there was no other time, yet it happened when he had just transmigrated
The heavens really knew how to joke!
If that was the case, Ye Xiao had no choice but to think of a way to advance to the King realm ahead of time.
Ye Xiao had a premonition that after the King realm, he would be able to synthesize the imperial techniques.
At that time, he would be able to obtain a more powerful cultivation technique that surpassed the imperial techniques.
He would also be able to increase his cultivation faster.
After he left, a few figures flew over from the direction of the northern Jing province.
“Professor, Jianghai city is ahead.”
“Thats right, lets speed up a little.
The nine provinces have ordered us to reinforce all the arrays in the city within a year.
They also want to increase the scale of the arrays in Jianghai city.
This is a huge project.
If we dont hurry, it will be impossible to complete it.”
“Professor Chen, you dont have to be in such a hurry.
You are the most famous array professor in the nine provinces.
Although the workload is huge, as long as you are here, it will definitely be completed smoothly.”
The person called Professor Chen was an array master at the level of a professor in the Array Formation Department of the Jingdu Martial Arts Academy.
He was also the president of the Nine Provinces Array Master Association, Chen Qingxuan!
Chen Qingxuan came from an array aristocratic family and had been influenced by arrays since he was young.
Due to his exceptional talent, his attainments in arrays were extraordinary.
That time, the nine provinces sent him to repair the arrays in every city and strengthen them.
In order to assist him in his work, the nine provinces had sent him a Xiantian seventh-grade divine grandmaster and four Xiantian sixth-grade great grandmasters to run errands for him.
However, at that moment, Chen Qingxuan suddenly stopped.
“Wait a moment, theres something strange ahead.”
Everyone suddenly stopped and could not help but ask in puzzlement,
“Professor Chen, whats strange in this wilderness”
Chen Qingxuan shook his head.
“I cant tell exactly, but I have this feeling.
Its the feeling of an array master.
But I cant tell exactly what it is.”
Everyone was slightly shocked.
“Professor Chen, can you be more accurate”
Chen Qingxuan took a deep breath and said with a serious expression,
“I just have a feeling that if we go any further, we might be in trouble.”
