I Shall Seal the Heavens - chapter-871
The arena matches continued as the top 32 continued to fight. The dangers
of the outside world had now become a sort of a tempering and assessment
of their own.
Because the young woman from the Five Colors Sect conceded, Meng Hao was
the first to complete this round, and he sat there cross-legged in the
arena, looking at the half-headed man outside. The man looked back at him.
Although there was a vast gap of empty space between them, as they looked
at each other, Meng Hao could sense the feeling of a summons rising up
“If I get the chance, I WILL take back that sword!” Meng Hao’s eyes
flickered. Although the sword might not seem special to anyone else, to
Meng Hao, it had the Sixth Demon Sealing Hex!
Each of the eight Demon Sealing Hexes were strange and mysterious. Both
the Body Hexing and Karmic Hexing gave him superiority in flexibility
when it came to fighting, and basically prevented anyone from guarding
against his attacks.
After four hours passed, the various arena matches wound to a conclusion.
The top 16 were now set. From over a thousand cultivators, successive
victories had led these people into the top 16. Each and every one could
be considered a peak expert of the Spirit Realm.
Experts like this could crush false Immortals, and could even compare to
some extent to true Immortals. In fact, most of them would assuredly
employ an Immortality Illumination Vine in the near future, after which
it wouldn’t be long before they became true Immortals.
Their path to Immortality would be a smooth one, and given their
accumulated resources, it would only be a few short years before they
were at the peak of the Immortal Realm.
This sequence of events happened once every ten thousand years; since
every true Immortal could cultivate at a speed that far exceeded a false
Immortal, true Immortals always rose to prominence and became famous in
all the Mountains and Seas.
Were it not for the incredible prizes being offered up during the arena
matches, the various sects would not have sent their Chosen here, but
would have kept them in secluded meditation to prepare for true

Actually, one of the reasons even more Chosen hadn’t joined the arena
matches was that most of them were still in secluded meditation. Once
they emerged, as long as they didn’t fail in the process, they would be
Meng Hao took a deep breath, rose to his feet and looked around at the
top 16 competitors in the arena matches.
Zhao Yifan was among them, as was Fan Dong’er. Sun Hai, surprisingly,
was there too, as well as some of the other Chosen who Meng Hao had
previously taken note of. As far as competitors from the trial by fire,
Li Yan had been defeated, as had the young man with the mosquitoes and
Junior Blood Immortal. Other than Meng Hao, the only remaining competitor
from the trial by fire was the garrulous old man.
“Rest and recuperate for one day, and then the battle for the top 8
The next day, the battle for the top 8 began!
On the main trunk of the Dao Tree, at the very top, there was a single
golden leaf. Beneath that were two silver leaves, further down were four
bronze leaves, and beneath that were eight light green leaves.
The battles for the top 8 would be fought on those eight light green
Eight battles, fought simultaneously. All of the crowds in the Ninth
Mountain and Sea were paying rapt attention.
“The top 8 will be selected from these sixteen people! Each one is a
top expert of the Dao Seeking stage. This round is definitely going to be

“I wonder who exactly is going to win! Who’s going to be eliminated!?
Even the top 16 experts have no way of knowing!”
“The thing I’m most curious about is whether that Fang Mu will be
able to enter the top 8!”
In the starry sky palace, the Patriarchs were also paying close attention.
By this point, many people had already forgotten about the main reason
why the arena matches of the trial by fire were being held to begin with.
Whoever took first place would have a chance to be taken in by the Three
Great Daoist Sects as a disciple. The three Patriarchs from the Three
Great Daoist Societies did nothing to remind anyone of this.
It was almost as if the taking of disciples wasn’t very important at
Light glittered in front of Meng Hao and next, he was standing on a light
green leaf. In front of him, a thin, emaciated figure appeared.
Although he was skinny, amorphous flames spread out around him as he
walked forward. They were invisible, but Meng Hao could feel them, as if
what was walking toward him was not a cultivator, but a flame Devil!
Within his eyes, flames could be seen flickering. He wore a long black
robe, and his hair floated around him. He stood there, his energy
surging, growing more and more powerful. In the blink of an eye, the air
around him began to ripple and distort.
This was the Chosen from the Bones of the Flamedevil, one of the Five
Holy Lands… Chen Hao!
Back in the ten stages of the trial by fire, the masked Li Yan had
repeatedly performed just behind Meng Hao. He had been defeated by Chen
Hao, although he had ended up seriously wounding Chen Hao in the process.

Meng Hao looked at him calmly, and Chen Hao looked back at him.
Neither of them spoke. The flames in Chen Hao’s eyes burned bright, and
the air around him distorted as the invisible flames burned. The flames
seemed capable of scorching anything and everything as they shot toward
No observer could see the fire, but by using divine sense, Meng Hao was
able to sense them clearly. What he saw was an illusory body of flames
rushing toward him.
“This is not the fire of the five elements!” Meng Hao thought, his
eyes glittering. The fire of the five elements was a natural law of
Heaven and Earth. In fact, the fire wielded by the young woman from the
Five Colors Sect had contained that natural law. However, the flames
unleashed by Chen Hao from the Bones of the Flamedevil had no natural
law, but instead, a strange will!
After examining it closely for a moment, he realized that it seemed to be
bound by some sort of summoning contract, as if… some all-powerful
being had bestowed the power of the flames. It was as if this flame was
actually a type of life force flame.
Meng Hao’s expression was normal as he clenched his right hand into a
fist. As soon as he punched out, a vortex appeared, which sent ripples
spreading out. Explosive rumbling could be heard as it slammed into the
flames, and was then completely submerged by them.
“Eee?” said Meng Hao, falling back for the first time. Chen Hao’s
eyes overflowed with the desire to fight, and as Meng Hao retreated, he
advanced, performing an incantation gesture that caused more roaring
flames to appear around him. Shockingly, they transformed into the shape
of an enormous mouth that bit toward Meng Hao.
The sight of Meng Hao retreating caused quite a stir in the outside
world. This was the first time they had ever seen him back up in a fight.
However, as the flame mouth closed in on him, Meng Hao stopped in place
and set his jaw. A look of anticipation gleamed in his eyes as he
performed an incantation gesture. Then, he punched out repeatedly, using
the Nine Heavens Destruction once again.
Booms rattled out in all directions as Meng Hao then transformed into a
vulture that shot toward Chen Hao like black lightning. Chen Hao’s face
fell, and he performed an incantation gesture. Immediately, a set of
flaming armor appeared around him. He reached out with his right hand in
a grasping motion, causing an enormous flame spear to materialize. His
hands closed around it, and he stabbed it toward the incoming Meng Hao.

The scream of the spear was ear-splitting, and countless erupting
volcanos appeared around it as it shot toward Meng Hao in shocking
Meng Hao snorted coldly as mountains of his own appeared and linked
together into an equally shocking mountain range, although it appeared as
a huge river to onlookers. It slammed into the volcanoes, causing a huge
boom to rise into the air. It was at this point that Meng Hao’s
shocking Dharma Idol appeared behind him.
In that instant, Chen Hao tilted his back and roared. His own incredible
Dharma Idol appeared, a corpse which was covered in scales and emanated
black flames. It immediately began to contend with Meng Hao’s Dharma
When the Dharma Idols collided, Meng Hao employed the Star Plucking
Magic. An incredible force that Chen Hao could not resist suddenly
grabbed him, causing a sense of crisis to well up inside of him. Letting
out a bellow of rage, Chen Hao caused his suit of flame armor to
detonate, using the force of the mighty explosion to fight against Meng
Hao’s Star Plucking Magic.
Chen Hao’s face was ashen, and blood oozed out of the corners of his
mouth. As of this point, he knew that he wasn’t a match for Meng Hao,
and yet he chose to continue fighting anyway.
However, in the instant that his flame armor exploded, Meng Hao’s eyes
began to shine with an intense desire to do battle. He strode forward;
even the roaring flames could do nothing to prevent his charge. As he
passed through the sea of flames, he let out a huge roar.
The roar caused the entire leaf to tremble, and even passed outside of
the Dao Tree itself. At the same time, his roar caused an enormous wind
to spring up, slashing into the sea of flames and cutting a path through
them directly to Chen Hao.
Chen Hao’s face fell as he realized how powerful this Fang Mu was. It
was only at this decisive moment of the battle that he realized that his
opponent was completely terrifying. Magical techniques and divine
abilities were secondary; the critical factor was his incredible energy.
“He has an aura of invincibility about him!” thought Chen Hao,
madness glowing in his eyes. He bit his tongue and spit out some blood,
which then transformed into lava, and then exploded into meteors that
streaked through the air toward Meng Hao.
Meng Hao snorted coldly, then pointed out with his right finger as he
unleashed the Eighth Demon Sealing Hex onto the sea of flames and the
shooting stars. No outsider would be able to tell what was happening, but
Chen Hao’s face instantly fell as his cultivation base lurched to a

The cost of that standstill was…
Meng Hao closed in, causing all of the shooting stars and the entire sea
of flames to be sent spinning away. As Meng Hao bore down on Chen Hao, he
punched out. A boom rang out as blood sprayed from Chen Hao’s mouth. It
only took a moment for him to recover, after which a fierce flame
appeared in his eyes. Taking advantage of his backward motion, he spun
his right leg around rapidly toward Meng Hao’s head.
At the same time, a look of determination appeared in his eyes.
“Flamedevil Transformation!” he cried out
This battle was the complete focus of all eyes out in the Ninth Mountain
and Sea. As of now, they were beginning to see how invincible Meng
Hao’s power was. As for Chen Hao, he also possessed similar power. As
they battled, neither of them spent any time on defense, but instead,
Meng Hao did nothing to evade Chen Hao’s spinning back kick. He lifted
his left hand and grabbed down hard onto Chen Hao’s leg, sending a
massive power of vibration into it. Rumbling could be heard, and Chen Hao
coughed up some blood. However, by this time his entire body was turning
This red was not the red of blood, but rather, the red of flames!
It was as if all the blood in his body had turned into lava. Flames burst
out all around him, engulfing him entirely. His skin didn’t seem
capable of bearing the flames, and began to split apart all over. Soon,
the rips and tears covered him completely.
However, his energy exploded up, and despite the fact that Meng Hao was
holding onto his leg tightly, he let out a bellow and caused flames to
surge toward Meng Hao.
Meng Hao’s expression was calm as he released his hand, then kicked out
viciously with his foot. A boom could be heard as Chen Hao was sent
flying several dozen meters back.

“Body transformation magic, huh?” said Meng Hao coolly. “Well,
I’ll just have to beat you back into your original state.” He
suddenly transformed into the vulture, which shot forward at incredible
speed. In the blink of an eye, it appeared in front of Chen Hao and
slashed at him with its claws. Then Meng Hao returned to human form and
punched out with a fist.
BOOOMMMM! After changing forms, Chen Hao thought that he would be even
more powerful, capable of fighting Meng Hao. However, he never imagined
that a few punches from Meng Hao would slam into him like wild tempests.
The speed and power were incredible, and he was incapable of standing up
to it. Just when he was about to try to resist, Meng Hao’s divine sense
transformed into an incredible crushing power that slammed down onto him.
