I Shall Seal the Heavens - chapter-917
The handful of tier 8 alchemists in the area were visibly moved. They
looked at Meng Hao on the screen, and their eyes shone with both praise
The Fang Clan’s Dao of Alchemy Division was not a sect, but rather, a
division of the clan. All of the alchemists and apprentice alchemists
were clan members, and their sense of clan pride and honor was at the
core of what had kept the clan from falling into ruin over the ages.
Actually, merit points were one of several methods that kept clan members
from becoming estranged from the clan.
Of course, the Dao of Alchemy Division hoped for a truly Chosen alchemy
cultivator to appear, to arouse interest in the Dao of alchemy and to
bring glory to the Fang Clan’s Dao of Alchemy Division once again.
However, despite the passage of many years, although other divisions of
the clan had produced Chosen, the Dao of Alchemy Division had remained a
quiet and desolate place. Chosen alchemy cultivators were something that
could only be happened upon, and never sought out.
There were some who had the talent for it, but were not the type who were
inclined to study the Dao of alchemy, and instead preferred to focus on
cultivation. People like that believed that the road to power would only
be obstructed by focusing on other practices.
Today, though, these tier 8 Elders finally had a bit of hope.
On the sixth level of the Medicine Pavilion, Meng Hao was taking his 70th
step. In that instant, he deeply inhaled the dense odor of plants and
vegetation. His nose and brain exploded with soundless rumbling, and a
tremor ran through him. All of the blood in his body suddenly began to
circulate in reverse.
Images of medicinal plants began to float up in his mind, endless
varieties of them. This type of Aroma Scrying did not just test
someone’s skill with plants and vegetation, it also tested instincts!
To be able to know how many types of medicinal plants there were by
simply sniffing, without thinking about it too much…. This was
something… that could really only be done by instinct, and by being
incredibly familiar with all sorts of plants and vegetation.
This higher level of skill with plants and vegetation was like the
Instantaneous Formula Scrying of the Dao of alchemy. They were actually
two branches of the same skill and the same realm. 1

The level of difficulty of this sixth level examination was such that the
requirement to pass was that the test-taker successfully take twenty
steps. With each of those steps, ten or more misjudgements were tolerated
before that step would be counted as a failure.
The reason for the rules being set in such a fashion was because this
level was simply too difficult.
Therefore, it was easy to imagine how Meng Hao, who had already taken 70
steps, with lotuses blooming for each step, would be so incredibly
shocking to all the alchemists outside who understood how difficult the
test was. They could hardly believe their eyes.
71 steps. 72 steps. 73 steps…. Meng Hao didn’t pause. He kept moving
forward, heading further and further in. The aromas of plants and
vegetation grew stronger, and were filled with even more types.
And yet, Meng Hao continued to produce… lotuses with each step.
It wasn’t until he reached the 80th step that he finally started to
slow down, although to the alchemist watching outside, it still looked
81, 82, 83…. With each step he took, the surrounding void of darkness
glittered more and more brightly. Botanical lanterns shone with
scintillating light, until the entire sixth level now appeared to be
Having taken his 90th step, he only had 10 more steps to go. He was now
moving even slower, as if these ten steps were difficult even for him.
Each step took a lot more thought, which was clear to the audience.
His instincts now felt clouded, and now he needed to spend more time
analyzing and deducing each aroma. It was only after painstaking
examination that he was finally able to identify all of the medicinal
The outside world was filled with silence. 300,000 spectators were all
staring at Meng Hao on the screen. Behind him was a path of lotuses, and
he was surrounded by endless numbers of botanical lamps.

As of this moment, Meng Hao was like an Immortal of plants and
vegetation. He was the focus of all attention; even that old woman looked
91, 92, 93… each step now took approximately two hours. Each time,
lotuses would bloom, and bright lanterns flickered everywhere.
The 95th step took him six hours; he stood there motionless within the
boundless aroma before he finally imprinted all of the plants and
vegetation within it.
The 96th step took twenty hours.
The 97th took two days.
By the 98th step, Meng Hao had long since lost track of time. Everyone in
the outside world was staring closely at the screen. Five days later, he
stepped forward again, and another lotus bloomed.
The 99th step took ten days, but yet again, a lotus bloomed, and the
crowds went wild.
By now, approximately 400,000 people had gathered in the area. All of
them were breathing heavily as they waited for Meng Hao… to take the
The 100th step!
There on the sixth level, Meng Hao’s eyes were closed. He had no idea
how many steps he had taken. Without even thinking about it, he took
another step forward. Rumbling sounds filled his mind, and his body

Meng Hao was panting. Every imprint he made forced him to sift through a
blur of obfuscating information, and required much analysis.
More time passed. Everyone in the outside world waited. Three days. Seven
days. Ten days….
Finally, twenty days passed!!
The outside world was abuzz; no one had ever been able to spend so much
time testing inside of the Medicine pavilion. Meng Hao had already taken
nearly two months to pass from the first level all the way to the sixth.
Five more days passed, when suddenly, all of the innumerable botanical
lamps in the sixth level exploded with scintillating light. Beneath Meng
Hao’s foot… appeared the 100th lotus!
His eyes opened, and his body shook. Blood sprayed from his mouth. This
level was so difficult that Meng Hao only passed it by shedding blood,
sweat, and tears. The last step had pushed him to the limits of his skill
with plants and vegetation, which, in the end, had enabled him to pass
with perfect marks!
Up ahead, the innumerable botanical lamps merged together to form a
staircase of vines, something that seemed suitable only for a sovereign
of plants and vegetation.
The seventh level was now open!
At the same time, from the view of the outside world, the sixth level
began to shine with boundless light. The sky went dim, and all darkness
was dispelled. The Dao of Alchemy Division was now the focus of all eyes.
Meng Hao’s name appeared on the stone stele, in the first position on
the list of names for the sixth level!

The audience was abuzz.
“He… passed the sixth level! Lotuses blossomed with each step! One
hundred steps, one hundred lotuses!”
“Could it be that this Fang Hao is going to bring about a renaissance
in the Dao of Alchemy Division!?”
“Just wait until he’s finished here in the medicine pavilion! I’m
definitely going to go listen to his lectures on plants and
Meanwhile, an enormous, ancient bell appeared in the air above the Fang
Clan’s ancestral mansion. From the look of it, the bell appeared to
have seen the passage of ages. It was engraved with mountains and rivers,
and as soon as it appeared, it rang loud and sharp.
The sound echoed out through Planet East Victory, to the ears of anyone
with Fang blood in their veins. Outsiders could not hear, but the Fang
Clan members could!!
The Fang Clan was shaken. Everyone in the Dao of Alchemy Division who was
not already at the Medicine Pavilion was aroused. Sensing the light
shining up from the Medicine Pavilion, many of them immediately flew in
Everyone in the ancestral mansion was equally shaken. First, there was
the light shining up from the Dao of Alchemy Division, and then there was
the bell. All Fang Clan members were shocked, and many flew toward the
Dao of Alchemy Division to see what exactly was going on.
The Grand Elder stood silently in the main temple, his expression
complex, and even somewhat confused.
“Did I… make a mistake?” he murmured. “No, I didn’t. Everything
is for the clan. Everything I have done is according to the rules of the
clan!!” The Grand Elder took a deep breath, but he still seemed to be
at a loss. He looked over at the Dao of Alchemy Division, and a fierce
glint could be seen in his eyes.

Meng Hao sat cross-legged on the sixth level of the Medicine Pavilion.
After meditating for a period of time, he opened his eyes, which were
still slightly bloodshot.
“From the difficulty of the fifth and sixth levels, I can see the
boundlessness of the Fang Clan’s Dao of alchemy,” he murmured. “I
made a lot of mistakes on the fifth level, and the sixth level was
actually even harder. It’s only because I absorbed the Resurrection
Lily that I can have such instincts with plants and vegetation!
“Therefore… my ability with Aroma Scrying is actually a bit of a
“This seventh level will definitely be even harder than all the
others!” With that, he stood up, and his eyes flashed with a glimmer of
obsession. When he had started in the Medicine Pavilion, his goal had
been to amaze the world and become an overnight celebrity. It had all
been for the merit points. Now, however, he was doing it to improve his
skill with plants and vegetation.
He wasn’t just concerned with passing the level; he wanted to pass
every level at the pinnacle. That was the only way for him to increase
his skill with plants and vegetation.
He took a deep breath and began to walk up the stairs.
At the same time that he set foot on the seventh level, all of the
hundreds of thousands of spectators outside were looking on. Compared to
the sixth level, the seventh level didn’t seem very extraordinary. The
only things that were visible were two enormous books.
One of them was, of course, the first volume of the Classic of Plants and
Vegetation, with its 1,000,000,000 medicinal plants.
The second was empty. It apparently had no content whatsoever.
Even as Meng Hao laid eyes on the two books, the archaic voice rang out
through the seventh level.

“Using grafting techniques and your knowledge of the mutual
augmentation and suppression between different types of plants and
vegetation, you must create… 10,000 unique medicinal plants. That is
the threshold to pass this level. If you wish to pass the level with
perfect marks, you must create 100,000.”
Meng Hao’s heart trembled. He took a deep breath, and his eyes began to
shine with bright light.
“Finally… a level like this!” He knew that having accumulated so
much knowledge regarding plants and vegetation, the time had eventually
come to step into a new realm. It was a realm which used the principles
of mutual augmentation and suppression, along with grafting techniques,
to create medicinal plants that belonged to him and him alone.
Using medicinal plants like that to concoct pills would make it very
difficult for others to identify the pill formula. Even if they could, it
would still be very difficult to create the necessary medicinal plant
ingredients. This was also a higher realm of pill concocting.
Back when Meng Hao was in the Violet Fate Sect, he had encountered such
things, but not very often. The ancient Demon Immortal Sect’s Dao of
alchemy also touched on such matters, but he had never had a chance to
systematically study it.
Now, he settled his qi and calmed his mind, then stepped forward toward
the tome and closed his eyes to think.
All of the people in the outside world who had never heard of what the
seventh level was like, now gasped. Actually, according to the
requirements of the Fang Clan’s Dao of alchemy, alchemists began to
explore grafting techniques beginning in tier 5. In order to become a
tier 7 alchemist, it was necessary to create 10,000 personally grafted
Among the hundreds of thousands of spectators, the tier 6 and 7
alchemists all began to whisper among themselves.
“I wonder if Meng Hao will be able to pass the seventh level…. How
many kinds of grafted medicinal plants will he create!?”
“It’s going to be difficult for him to pass. No one has ever done so
on the first try. Not even his excellency Pill Elder was able to; it took
him four tries.”

“Only with a profound knowledge base, and significant experience with
grafting plants and vegetation, can someone even attempt the seventh
level, let alone pass it.”
