Chapter 926 - Ice Spirit Horse
"Go across Flaming God Mountain?"
I opened the map and took a look and said, "After Flaming God Mountain, it is just the Ice Fire Plains. There are very few monsters on those desolate plains, not to mention resources. What is Wang Ze Cheng planning? Does it have something to do with Mu Xin leading Swirling Abyss City players over? This..."
Yue Qing Qian smiled, "Brother Xiao Yao, I think your guess is correct — it does have something to do with that. If not, Wang Ze Cheng wouldn't be able to send so many troops over. Tian Ling City and Swirling Abyss City are 15 hours apart from one another and if it was purely cavalry, it would be much quicker, around 5 to 7 hours. They would coordinate with one another and then meet at the Ice Fire Plains."
"What kind of trade would it be?"
"Item trade, it depends..." Yue Qing Qian smiled, "Wang Ze Cheng has money and that face and pretty much nothing else. Mu Xin is a Russian beauty with a good face and body so she most probably won't fall for someone like him. Therefore, it should be a trade of Swirling Abyss City resources?"
"Resources?" My heart sank. I flipped through the Swirling Abyss City resources and said, "Their resource production is more than Flaming Cloud City but not above that of Tian Ling City..."
Yue Qing Qian said, "Why not go take a look?"
After confirming the location, I wasn't in a rush to head out. Anyway, my God Dragon Horse was much faster than the Greedy Wolf Cavalry. Moreover, I also had the [Icy Wings] effect and I would take an hour to get there. Therefore, I brought a bunch of [Zhan Long] players to kill some [Divine Tier] and [Demon Harvest Tier] BOSSes before setting off. Unfortunately, no [Demon Harvest Tier] weapons popped out. BOSSes these days had a much lower drop rate.
When it was almost time, I immediately rode my horse into the Ice Fire Plains. I traveled for half an hour and used [Icy Wings] to fly into the sky. I was roughly 2,000 meters above ground, and if the people below looked up at me, it would just be a small speck. However, I was able to see everything clearly. Especially when large batches of people were sent out, they were extremely clear to my eyes.
The Ice Fire Plains were really huge and it took a full 80 minutes to get to the middle. I searched for close to 20 minutes and finally found the Greedy Wolf Cavalry. A bunch of fire red-colored Greedy Wolf Cavalry grouped together, numbering at least ten thousand of them. It seemed like Yue Qing Qian's intel wasn't wrong. Wang Ze Cheng did bring people over.
In the distance, a bunch of other people appeared. They came from the Swirling Abyss City second guild [Deep Chill]. The leader was a middle-aged brute riding a black warhorse who seemed really powerful and strong. He held an axe and in his arms sat a beautiful-looking female player who held a staff.
"Ding", Yue Qing Qian's call request arrived...
"Brother Xiao Yao, did you find them?"
"I did, I found Mu Xin. However, I don't know who the berserker male she’s with. His ID is Winter Horse Neigh, a level 162 Berserker."
Yue Qing Qian smiled, "Okay, that Winter Horse Neigh is her boyfriend — he is quite strong. Brother, you better be careful."
I charged down at a really quick speed. Like an arrow shooting out from a bow, I entered the forest nearby. I entered and used the [Stealth] effect. When the Greedy Wolf Cavalry and [Deep Chill] people looked over, they would just think that a swallow had entered the forest and wouldn't suspect anything.
I hid in the forest, looking at the target in the distance. I could even listen clearly to what they were talking about.
Wang Ze Cheng held a spear and stopped his horse. He laughed out loud, "Mu Xin, Winter Horse Neigh, you have waited for a long time. You all really keep your promises!"
Mu Xin jumped off from his arms. She held the staff, her brow rising up, "Cang Cheng, you are from China Region and now are trading with the Swirling Abyss City players. Based on Chinese values, wouldn't they think you are colluding with the enemy and they will blame you for being disloyal?"
Wang Ze Cheng's brow rose up as well, "I am Chinese and I am here just for a trade to strengthen my guild and let the China Region have more power, how am I wrong?"
Winter Horse Neigh smiled, "It seems like Cang Cheng isn't an ordinary person. Let's follow our original arrangement, fifty per time."
Wang Ze Cheng ordered his horse forward and he turned towards Call Me Master, "You trade first?"
Call Me Master blinked her eyes and said, "Me first?"
Call Me Master rode her wolf slowly forward. The trading word appeared on her head and then a wind stirred up around her, sweeping the fallen leaves and sticks on the ground. I was unable to hear their conversation, but I could clearly see that Call Me Master and Winter Horse Neigh had completed a trade. In the next moment, she took out a blue mount crystal. She bit her finger and dropped two drops of blood on it and instantly frost danced. With a "shua", an ice-wrapped warhorse appeared in front of Call Me Master. I had seen such a mount before. Upon closer inspection, many players in [Deep Chill] had such mounts!
I asked in the call with Qing Qian, "Check [Deep Chill]'s mount, what is the situation with that ice-effect war horse?"
Yue Qing Qian said, "Sure, wait up!"
In less than half a minute, she directly sent a picture of their stats and said, "Brother Xiao Yao, it is the Ice Spirit Horse, the main cavalry of [Deep Chill]. However, they don't have many, maybe a total of just 5,000."

"F***, such strong stats..." I was stunned and said, "That bonus is so overpowered. The movement reduction skills of mages won't affect it much. As expected, it allows them to go all in..."
Yue Qing Qian said, "Yeah, the Ice Spirit Horse is really strong. Didn't we fight them in the last country war? They can't beat our Fire Dragon Cavalry, but they are probably on the same level as our Steel Blade Cavalry. Truthfully speaking, their stats are a little stronger because our average player strength is stronger. If not, we would take a loss under their hands. Brother Xiao Yao, why did you suddenly ask about that?"
I took in a deep breath and said, "Wang Ze Cheng and Mu Xin are trading this Ice Spirit Cavalry!"
Yue Qing Qian was astonished, "This... This is a little too much, right? Why would Mu Xin sell such a high-grade calvary? Is she crazy... But there shouldn't be much, right?"
I looked on and saw all the Greedy Wolf Cavalry that Wang Ze Cheng brought change into Ice Spirit Horses. Their original guild cavalry also changed to Ice Spirit Horses. 11 thousand of them. Thus, my heart sank and said, "It definitely won't be a little, it even exceeds what we expected..."
"5,000?" Yue Qing Qian asked.
"They already have 11 thousand people with them..."
"This..." Yue Qing Qian was biting her lips, "Damn, how are there so many? Brother Xiao Yao, hold up, let me check..."
I frowned and continued to watch — such trades weren't something we could stop. If I charge out, I will be killed after killing a few and it wouldn't achieve anything.
A few minutes later Yue Qing Qian said, "Brother Xiao Yao, Ice Spirit Horses are from the southern area of Swirling Abyss City in the vast ice plains. Although there aren't many, they spawn quickly. A total of 7 guilds all defend that place to capture Ice Spirit Horses. They most probably sold all of them to Wang Ze Cheng."
"They aren't using them and sold them for money instead. What is going on?"
"Brother, don't be anxious. Swirling Abyss City is in a cold place so it produces ice element war horses, weapons, equipment and etc, but it doesn't have mines and metal such that they have very few Dragon Crystal Cannons and Flame Dragon Cannons. Last time, when they killed Duke Ding Fan, they used up all their Dragon Crystal Cannons so the Russian Sever needs gold pretty badly."
I squinted, "They need gold to buy Dragon Crystal Cannons, Flame Dragon Cannons, but they purchase it from who?"
"Who is the biggest arms dealer?"
"Iron Skull City's Americans?"
"Hehe, you got it right!"
I sighed, "This is too complicated... The world is going to be in chaos with everyone sharing resources. Mu Xin is handing the Ice Spirit Horses to Wang Ze Cheng because she wants them to cause chaos right?"
Yue Qing Qian blinked and said, "It might not be chaos right now. What I am worried about is that Iron Skull City will support some guild to stir up some problems. Then chaos would definitely ensue."
I clenched my fist, "No matter what, we will trample them. Let [Rising Sun Like Blood] do what they want. I would like to see how skilled Wang Ze Cheng is and how much trouble he can cause!"
"Alright, let's just watch on and see the changes."
