Trial of the heart was to pass the path of rebirth in ten days.

Participants are to choose between difficulty levels of easy (lesser spirit potential), intermediate (intermediate spirit potential), and difficult (superior spirit potential). The difficult level caverns are embodied with a spirit vein of the heavenly attribute.

Trial of endurance and potential takes place on the Endless Mountain. There are ten thousand steps in the mountain, divided into ten floors.

Refining the magnetic heart (元磁之心) after passing the test on the tenth floor will allow one to refine the mountain.
