I Shall Seal the Heavens - chapter-847
Crowds in locations all over the Ninth Mountain and Sea were watching the
events on the vortex screens. However, regardless of location, the eyes
of every spectator suddenly went wide with disbelief.
On the Ancient Road of Dao Seeking, Fang Mu’s name had previously had
no number next to it. In the blink of an eye, there was suddenly a
The number appeared so quickly, so suddenly, that people didn’t even
have a chance to register it mentally before both the number, and Fang
Mu’s name, disappeared.
The light that covered the altar upon which Meng Hao stood slowly faded
away, to reveal Meng Hao, sitting there cross-legged.
He was the first person…
To pass the stage!!
“That’s… that’s impossible!!”
“What just happened? I remember that just now, Fang Mu didn’t have
any numbers next to his name at all. That means he hadn’t even killed a
single enemy. Then I blinked my eyes, and he passed the stage?”
“A bunch of numbers appeared just now, and then they vanished, and Fang
Mu passed the stage. Is it possible… is it possible that he used only
one move to kill all of the enemies!?!?”
“Heavens! He got first place in the second stage too! Hardly any time
has passed, not even a hundred breaths!!”

“He got first place in the first stage, and now first place in the
second stage!!” Everyone out in the Ninth Mountain and Sea was
completely shocked. Cries of astonishment rang out in all of the
locations where people were watching, and the buzz of conversation
immediately rose up.
In the vast Eastern Lands, Fang Xiufeng and Meng Li were gaping at the
scene. Even they weren’t too sure exactly what Meng Hao had done.
Pill Demon and Chu Yuyan were also looking on with wide eyes, staring
dumbly at Meng Hao on the screen.
The crowds out in the Ninth Mountain and Sea were in an uproar.
“That Fang Mu, he’s definitely the star of this whole trial by
“How powerful is he exactly? He actually… he actually killed all of
the enemies with one move!”
“I want to see how exactly he did it. It must have been
Meanwhile, not too far away from Planet East Victory, an enormous turtle
floated in the starry sky, carrying an entire continent on its back. He
was staring in shock at the three vortex screens down below on East
“Dammit. It must be him! Even if he transformed into dust, the
Patriarch would still recognize that little bastard!!
“But… what exactly did he do? He got first place in the blink of an
eye!” This gargantuan turtle was of course none other than Patriarch

At the same time, in another location in the starry sky, a figure could
be seen sitting cross-legged on an asteroid, hair disheveled as he looked
up at three vortex screens. His expression was taciturn, but a brilliant
light glittered in his eyes.
“How could I have imagined that I wouldn’t die…. Meng Hao, Planet
South Heaven was only the first half of my life. I have to thank you for
helping me understand so much. In the remaining years, I will definitely
find a way to pay you back.”
Even as everyone in the Ninth Mountain and Sea was shaken, back in the
palace among the stars, silence reigned. The Patriarchs of the various
sects and clans, even the representatives from the Three Great Daoist
Societies, were all watching with wide eyes and slack jaws.
After a long moment, one of the old men chuckled wryly and said,
These people were the only ones who could clearly see what had actually
“The fact that he came up with a way to seize victory like that might
be considered cheating, but it’s amazing nonetheless!!”
“He didn’t hesitate to kill himself along with the enemy! Fervor like
that is what clinched the victory!”
“Compared to this Fang Mu, all the others couldn’t even be considered
to be using unorthodox tactics. His methods are truly astonishing. To
self-detonate with such decisiveness, and furthermore, to control it so
ingeniously… we can be certain that Fang Mu was the first person to
realize that the second stage was an illusory world!”
“Even still, he should be disqualified! Fraudulent methods like that
are a complete disgrace!”
“Oh please, you want him disqualified so you can secretly go recruit
him! That’s not cheating. The other competitors just didn’t think of
that idea, or perhaps couldn’t pull it off. That’s just weakness on
their part. This Fang Mu has definitely cleared this stage!”

As the discussions continued in the palace, one of the three Elders from
the Three Great Daoist Societies who sat at the head of the group
suddenly opened his eyes, filling the palace with endless light.
“Fang Mu. Stage cleared!” He spoke only four words, but they echoed
out from the palace into the starry sky, and then, by means of a special
technique, echoed throughout the Ancient Road, and then out into the rest
of the Ninth Mountain and Sea.
Suddenly, a ranking list appeared in the Ancient Road of Dao Seeking, and
in first place was the name Fang Mu. Every spot beneath it was blank.
The Ninth Mountain and Sea was abuzz, and many of the Patriarchs seated
in the palace pulled out jade slips to transmit information to their
sects, ordering them to attempt to recruit Fang Mu.
It was at this point that Meng Hao opened his eyes. At first, they seemed
blank, but then quickly grew bright. His expression was calm as he sat
there cross-legged and unmoving.
The second stage was a complete illusion, and the so-called risk to the
lives of the competitors was false. However, because of the brutality of
the first stage, the other competitors subconsciously assumed that the
second stage would be exactly the same.
By now, roughly half of the prescribed time period had passed.
Shockingly, a blue-robed young woman from the group who had proceeded
3,000 paces suddenly became visible from within the light that surrounded
her. Her eyes brimmed with confidence as she looked over at the ranking
list, and then suddenly went wide with shock.
“He was actually faster than me!” she thought. “I possess the Dao
of souls, allowing me to take control of the puppets. And yet Fang Mu
possesses some more powerful divine ability? Just what is it?!”
More people began to clear the second stage after the young woman. It
didn’t take long for enough time to pass for an incense stick to burn.
Roughly a third of the competitors didn’t manage to clear the stage. As
for those who did, they used a variety of methods to succeed. When it
came to the true Immortal, most of them chose to use the python to
destroy it in a single blow.
No one used the same method as Meng Hao.

As people emerged from clearing the stage, they looked over at the
ranking list, and were shocked.
“Fang Mu took first place in the first stage, and now he took first
place in the second stage too!”
“Dammit!!” The masked young man was one of the last to emerge from
the second stage. Behind his mask, his face was extremely unsightly. His
previously high aspirations had been dealt a heavy blow. As for the old
man with the age-transformation powers, he also looked ashen-faced, and
Most of the cultivators who distinguished themselves in the first stage
did not fare very well in the second stage.
Meanwhile, on the Ancient Roads of the Nascent Soul and Spirit Severing,
the second stage had likewise concluded. Fatty, Chen Fan and Wang Youcai
had all succeeded. Chen Fan put on the most astonishing performance, and
although he didn’t take first place, he was in the top 100, which was
quite an accomplishment!
As for Fatty and Wang Youcai, they ended up in the top 1,000.
Li Shiqi ranked toward the bottom, and had barely been able to pass.
It was only the second stage, but the previously large number of
competitors had already been whittled down by roughly half.
Of course, Meng Hao’s performance caused a huge stir in the Ninth
Mountain and Sea, and the name Fang Mu was now planted thoroughly in
everyone’s minds. Many people were now looking forward to the third
stage, to see if he could take first place yet again!
On the Ancient Road of Dao Seeking, Ling Yunzi of the Ninth Sea God World
stood there in illusory form, looking out at the crowds. This time, his
gaze lingered on Meng Hao for a bit longer than it had last time.

Without another word, he then waved his hand, causing everyone to
disappear. When they reappeared, they were further along down the Ancient
Road. They still stood on altars, although everyone’s positions were
now changed. Some who were in the lead, were now sent further back,
whereas some who had been far in the back, had now caught up.
Only Meng Hao was alone, far up ahead of everyone on his own altar.
Behind him were all the other Dao Seeking cultivators, staring at his
back, faces filled with the desire to do battle.
“The previous two stages tested your battle prowess,” Ling Yunzi said
coolly. “You will now pass through the third, fourth, and fifth stages
simultaneously. They will test your latent talent, the depth of your
cultivation base, and also… your true age!
“The higher your latent talent, the deeper your cultivation base, and
the younger you are, the more outstanding your results will be!
“This is a composite test. Even if you did not perform well in the
first two stages, if you do well in this third stage, you can still rise
above the other competitors.” With that, he waved his hand, causing
everything to flash with bright colors, and a wind to pick up. Suddenly,
three enormous stone steles rose up out of the altars in front of each
Each stone stele was inscribed with a single large character.
Talent! Cultivation! Age!
“Place your hand onto the stone stele, and allow its power to enter
into you. Let the testing begin!”
The majority of the cultivators on the Ancient Road of Dao Seeking
stepped forward and placed their hands onto the ‘talent’ stone
steles. In the blink of an eye, columns of light began to rise up from
the stone steles, each one reaching a different height. Most reached a
height of approximately 30 meters. However, there was one that suddenly
shot up to 60 meters, drawing quite a bit of attention.
To any sect, the latent talent a cultivator possessed was actually more
important than battle prowess.

Next, a 90-meter column of light appeared, then a 150-meter column, a
180-meter column, and even a 300-meter column!
That one belonged to the young woman who had emerged from the second
stage right after Meng Hao. She looked at the column of light, her
expression as calm as it usually was.
Behind her, more 300-meter columns appeared. Among the other cultivators
who possessed 300-meter columns were the masked young man and the
cultivator with the mosquitos. Those two, along with the young woman,
were known to the audience by now. The others whose columns reached 300
meters were all people who hadn’t attracted much attention in the
previous two stages, but were now making a spectacular showing.
“A 300-meter column of light shows an incredible level of latent
talent. I never imagined that there would be seven people with such
latent talent in the Dao Seeking division of the trial by fire!”
“There are nine in the Spirit Severing division!”
“There are even more in the Nascent Soul division! A total of seventeen
“I wonder how Fang Mu will perform….” While the crowds outside
discussed the proceedings, the Patriarchs in the palace who represented
the various sects and clans were looking on with glittering eyes. They
eyed the various cultivators with exceptional latent talent, and of
course, were looking at Meng Hao.
Meng Hao hesitated for a moment. He had never really paid much attention
to his latent talent, but he lifted his hand up and then placed it onto
the stone stele.
As soon as he touched it, a gentle power spread out into his body from
the stone stele. It quickly flowed into his qi and blood passageways,
eventually swirling out through his whole body. However, it was at this
point that the illusory Immortal meridian created by the bronze lamp
suddenly quivered. Then, it began to emit a gravitational force that…
instantly sucked up the gentle power from the stone stele.
Meng Hao’s eyes went wide.
