Chapter 984: 33 Heavens!

In the Immortal Realm… the number of Immortal meridians someone possessed would determine how weak or powerful they were in battle.

That was something everyone knew. However, virtually nobody knew what sort of destiny or transformations would appear when someone corroborated the Dao on their own.

That was because in the Nine Mountains and Seas, only Kṣitigarbha had ever succeeded. However, now that Meng Hao had opened 123 meridians, the Dao Realm Patriarchs, as well as the true Immortal Chosen and Ancient Realm experts, were all completely shaken, and were beginning to realize that something else might happen.

Immortals who corroborate their Dao on their own can actually transform their Immortal meridians!

This was not an ordinary transformation, but something which allowed the meridians to be merged in the form of a divine ability. In a brief moment… 120 times the level of normal power could be unleashed, a terrifying and shocking development that would strike awe into the hearts of any and all cultivators.

“Immortals who corroborate their Dao on their own do not need any sort of secret magic to be able to increase the power of their Immortal meridians when fighting. That is because such Immortals’ bodies are a secret magic unto themselves!”

“Such a thing is fearful and shocking! No wonder Kṣitigarbha came to be the Lord of the Fourth Mountain and Sea!”

“This kid… has unimaginable potential!”

The Ninth Mountain and Sea was in a commotion, as all eyes remained glued to Meng Hao.

What Meng Hao had done would surely turn into a legend, a myth!

123 meridians did not just place him in the number one position in the Immortal Realm in the Ninth Mountain and Sea. Such a number was the most that had been opened by anyone in ALL the Nine Mountains and Seas!

A true Saint fleshly body, and a true Immortal cultivation base!

As of this moment, he was a Paragon! An Immortal Realm Paragon!

He was surrounded by 123 astonishing, roaring Immortal dragons. The last of those dragons was composed entirely of flame, and emanated a powerful Essence aura!

“It’s over.” Meng Hao murmured. He could sense the boundless Immortal power within him, making his cultivation base completely different than before. By way of comparison, it could be said that before Meng Hao had been a tree, and now, he was a forest!

The sense of power that flowed through his body causes his eyes to shine with bright light as he looked up. He could sense his blood boiling, and could clearly detect the Immortal qi within him.

After a long moment passed, he stretched out both hands.

“Return!” As the single word echoed out, the 123 Immortal dragons outside the Door of Immortality roared, and then shot directly toward Meng Hao. Rumbling could be heard as they merged into him, causing his energy to surge.

Finally, the Door of Immortality began to fade away. The Immortal light faded until it was gone, and the Immortal qi dried up. Meng Hao’s true Immortal Tribulation…

Had been thoroughly transcended!!

He was now an Immortal!

His long hair flew about, and he emanated the aura of an Immortal. His entire person had moved beyond the mortal form, and he was now completely different. Before, he had been handsome, but now he exuded an otherworldly air, as if his mere presence was enough to attract the attention of all onlookers.

In the same moment that the Door of Immortality faded away completely, it was suddenly possible to see a projected image around him!

Countless celestial soldiers wearing golden armor appeared. They stretched out in all directions, too many to count, and they gazed at Meng Hao briefly before dropping to their knees to kowtow.

At the same time, the numerous Immortal Palaces appeared anew, filling the area. An enormous pedestal appeared beneath Meng Hao’s feet, which lifted him up to overlook everyone.

Immortal light appeared again, spreading out boundlessly, and swirling clouds filled the area.

Innumerable golden dragons swirled about up above, letting out subservient roars. From a distance, it was possible to see the celestial soldiers kowtowing, the golden dragons capitulating, and then, countless blurry figures emerging from the Immortal palaces, who then clasped hands and bowed deeply to Meng Hao.

The sky went dim, and the starry sky trembled. All of the cultivators of the Ninth Mountain and Sea who were watching Meng Hao went completely silent when they saw what was happening.

This was… a sign!

When Fan Dong’er became Immortal, dragons and phoenixes danced. When Fang Wei reached Immortality, 10,000 soldiers bowed. In fact, signs had appeared when all of the other Chosen had reached Immortal Ascension.

Now, a sign appeared for Meng Hao as well.

However, compared to those of the others, this sign was far more majestic and shocking!

In fact, many people assumed that this sign was the end when, all of a sudden, something else appeared in Meng Hao’s vicinity… nine mountains!

These were nine mountains that caused Heaven and Earth to tremble, mountains that were like Imperial Lords!

Between each mountain was a sea, which meant that there were also nine seas!

Nine Mountains! Nine Seas! A sun, a moon, and heavenly bodies all orbiting around them!

Everyone who could see this was shaken mentally. To people who lived in the realm of the Nine Mountains and Seas, there was nothing more stunning than this image, nor would anything be able to match its splendor.

“Nine Mountains and Nine Seas…. I can’t believe he caused a sign like that to appear! So corroborating your own Dao is actually this powerful!!”

“Could it be… that this represents the approval of the Nine Mountains and Seas themselves? Above Paragons are Imperial Lords! Does he have the aura of an Imperial Lord on him?!”

“From today on, the Ninth Mountain and Sea… has a new blazing sun that will surely cause all of the Mountains and Seas to tremble!!” Everyone was in an uproar as they looked at Meng Hao; they simply couldn’t remain calm. From the moment he had begun to transcend his tribulation, he was completely different than anyone else, and that wouldn’t stop. Even though he had already finished transcending tribulation, and the Door of Immortality had vanished, he was still shocking everyone.

Meng Hao glanced around at the signs around him, and then looked emotionally in the direction of Planet South Heaven.

“Dad, mom,” he murmured. “I’ve risen to prominence in the Fang Clan!

“Master, can you see me from where you are in the Kunlun Society?

“Foster father, can your spirit in Heaven see me, sir?

“Qing’er… can you see me?” This was a moment in which he should be extremely happy and excited. However… in reality, there was no one standing next to him with whom to share his smile.

His father and mother were on Planet South Heaven. His master was in the Kunlun Society. His foster father… had long since returned to the dust. His wife Xu Qing… was now in some unknown place undergoing reincarnation.

Meng Hao sighed, then looked up and did his best to put his emotions in order. Once again, his eyes began to shine with a bright light.

“My Immortal meridians are opened. Next… it’s time to form my Immortal souls!

“Everyone has three spiritual souls and seven physical souls. Therefore, 100 opened meridians can form 10 souls!

“Based on my understanding, after 100 meridians, each additional meridian should be able to produce another soul!

“Immortal souls… form!” he said calmly. In the moment that the words left his mouth, his Immortal meridians emitted intense rumbling sounds.

Shockingly, a huge Dharma Idol appeared behind him. As of now, it was most accurate to say that the Dharma Idol… was the soul of a true Immortal!

36,900 meters! 1

Rumbling could be heard as a 2nd soul formed, then a 3rd, and a 4th….

10 true Immortal souls all appeared, each one of which exuded shocking power that emanated out in all directions. Then an 11th, a 12th, a 13th… all appeared.

Each soul which appeared caused anyone who looked at it to shake and tremble. Ripples emanated out into the starry sky, and Meng Hao’s energy rose up higher and higher.


21 souls. 22 souls. 23 souls!

Soon, 29 souls had appeared, and then 30!

An entire collection of Immortal souls appeared behind Meng Hao. In addition to the original 10, more Immortal souls appeared due to his various aggregations of destiny and divine abilities.

31 souls. 32 souls…. In the end, there were 33 souls!!

These 33 true Immortal souls caused 33 types of incredible pressure to spread out. It was as if… 33 Heavens had appeared!

How many Heavens exist? The 33 Heavens are ultimate!

In the legends of the Nine Mountains and Seas, above the Nine Mountains were 33 Heavens. If someone could break through those 33 Heavens, they could leave the Nine Mountains and Seas.

That was referred to… as the path of the Mountain and Sea Tribulation!

Meng Hao’s cultivation base roared, but he did not turn to look back behind him. He could sense the power of the 33 true Immortal souls behind him, and yet wasn’t sure exactly how powerful he was.

However, he was sure… that if he went back to the ancestral land now and faced those Ancient Realm experts with one extinguished Soul Lamp, then he wouldn’t even need the assistance of the terracotta soldier… to slaughter them!

Heaven and Earth rumbled as Meng Hao hovered there in the starry sky. Beneath his feet was a pedestal, and he was surrounded by innumerable kowtowing celestial soldiers. Nine Mountains and Nine Seas could be seen, including a sun and a moon. Further off, figures emerged from the Immortal Palaces to clasp hands and bow.

Behind him were 33 true Immortal souls, which transformed into 33 Heavens!

Anyone who could see what was happening was thoroughly shocked.

“33 Heavens…. No wonder he opened 123 meridians!”

“That is the limit of the Immortal Realm in the Nine Mountains and Seas. That is the true great circle!” The Dao Realm Patriarchs of the various sects and clans all understood this point. They looked at Meng Hao, and what they saw was a blazing sun of the Ninth Mountain and Sea, someone who would soon move on to even more glory.

At the same time, the true Immortal Chosen of the various sects and clans all looked on silently. From their expressions, it was possible to tell that they wished to fight Meng Hao more than anything. All of the Chosen, regardless of whether they had ever had dealings with Meng Hao, were filled with an intense desire to do battle.

“I have to fight! If I don’t, I’ll be eternally plagued by this inner Devil!”

“The only way to walk my own path is to dare to battle him, and defeat him! Then I can struggle for glory in this era!”

“He has the secret magic that allowed him to become an Immortal who corroborated the Dao on his own. However, we have our own secret magics, legacies passed down in our sects, which enable us to dramatically multiply the power of our own Immortal meridians. Therefore, fighting him… is not an impossibility!”

Taiyang Zi was obsessed. Song Luodan had both fists clenched. Wang Mu’s expression flickered with killing intent. Zhao Yifan had drawn his sword. Fan Dong’er’s eyes glittered brightly.

Li Ling’er, Sun Hai, and even Wang Tengfei, as well as others who Meng Hao had never even seen before, all of the Chosen who had broken through to true Immortality…

All had the intense desire to fight!

Naturally, Fang Wei was no exception. He hovered in midair, looking up at Meng Hao in the starry sky, and in his eyes gleamed with all of the desire to fight that he could muster.

“I’m Fang Wei, and in this era, Fang Hao, you can’t be allowed to be the only one who shines with glory!” Fang Wei took a deep breath and then calmed himself. Personally witnessing Meng Hao transcending his tribulation was a life-changing experience, almost like a baptism.

        1. From what I can see, it’s 10 meridians = 1 soul.

          Meng Hao opened 100 so he has 10 souls.

          Each 23 extra meridians = 1 soul.

          Therefore 10 + 23 = 33 souls

          Fang Wei should have 9 souls. To be specific, 9.8 souls since he have 98 meridians. I believe that the decimal value gets cut off so strictly speaking, he has 9 souls, not 10.

          1. It depends on if you round up or round down.

            If you open less than ten meridians do you get an immortal soul or not?

          2. @Greyman
            Idt anyone is so trash talent to open less than 10, since that person wouldn’t be able to reach immortal realm in the first place

    1. That’s not even accounting for how more meridians seem like they are exponentially stronger with number, not linearly and how the extra meridians are already many times stronger than normal ones, and even his normal ones are several times stronger than theirs.

    2. So forming of meridians is finally over. I thought we’ll be seeing 20yr old BBD’ s photo first before meng hao ever completes his meridians. This arc is too looooooooooooonnnnnnggggggg!!!! If we could cut some paragraphs/sentences where someone “gaped, eyes filled with killing intent,eyes glittering,rising up to thier feet,eyes flickered,opening thier eyes,easier to find qilin horns” and paste to a new document,we will have 3 chapters or more (could only count to 3) out of this expressions……

      1. This is tying all the loose ends and plot devices. Of course it would be long. At least it wasn’t boring or uninteresting when compared to ATG’s recent chapters. Now that we saw what all those legacies and their uses, we can finally move on to a new arc. 16 chapters to go……

        1. Kolpose, he was talking about the clatter of the peanut-gallery’s incomparably shocking shock, which seemingly wasted most of the chapters, not the actual content of the tribulation itself.
          So, in a way, and sorry for my French — those last few chapters were indeed like ATG’s narrative.

          I don’t argue that it wasn’t important for the story to go over the whole meridian thing, but the way it was done was mostly unsavory. Especially the over-abundance of reaction-narrative (cough, like ATG).
          Personally, I stacked up over 30 chapters, so I had my fun going over that mini-arc. But I can see how other people who read on a chapter-by-chapter basis can get pissy when they wait for the story to continue, but it just ends up with Meng Hao going: “…I can open just one more..!!”
          ~ends up opening 5 more~

    3. I know right ? those guys really can’t recognize mount tai…

      It’s like they think that MH only has those 123 meridians and nothing else, and so their clan’s secret magics can bridge the gap, when it’s pretty obvious that he has more secrets than anyone else… Heck, he already beat most of them on South Heaven, and then again as Fang Mu in that ancient ruins Tournament… they should know better !

  1. Thanks for the chapter, Deathblade, Madam Deathblade, Baby Deathblade, anonpuffs, Courtrecords, GNE, Lingson, Shu and JerryDaBaws!

    Fully expecting Meng Hao to turn Fang Wei’s two Dharma statues (the ones formed from his Nirvana fruits) into Meng Hao’s figure and turned against Fang Wei.

  2. Thanks for the chapter!

    I still don’t think Sun Hai can get past Fang Yu.

    At the same time, I also believe that Meng Hao won’t be able to beat Fang Yu either. XD

    1. Of course he can’t, nothing can beat the power of loving sister XD

      I still think that Meng Hao should keep Fang Yu for himself?? I know that kinda weird and maybe even sick

      1. That would be super weird to me on an emotional level, but the logical side of me in regards to almost anything (be it incest, drugs or most anything else) is that if it doesn’t hurt anyone else, on what grounds can I actually criticize it? I mean, I remember hearing a story when I was studying law in a high school class about an asian couple in Canada that got married and iirc both their first and second child had defects so they had a test done to figure out wtf was going on and found out they were siblings/twins (I can’t remember) who were separated basically at birth or when they were really young children. Long story short the court ordered them unable to meet anymore, guy didn’t like that and knocked her up again and he went to jail again.
        I don’t really see a personal problem with it as long as they’re willing to do in vitro fertilization with genetic stuff from another person, even if it is kind of emotionally disgusting for me for family to be like that (although I imagine in a world like this it probably wouldn’t be a problem). Despite myself, I have enjoyed story’s with those elements before though, so I guess I’m not vehemently opposed to it.

        That being said, no. That would be WAY too forced and probably ruin a lot of the character interactions. This series is too good right now, and that could risk the story losing a lot of what makes it amazing if it went down that route.

        1. you have a point there, but, what if he pulls her soul out and puts in into a new body that he creates or steals from someone, then the genetic stuff wont be an issue, and it will be technically Fang Yu? lol

          or not have her as a romantic partner but just really close? idk cuz then Fang Yu will get lonely if she doesnt have a lover..

          idk I dont really like that bald guy, Son or Sun something, idk his name, i just dont like him and dont want Fang Yu to get together with him

    2. Imagine even when he is the most powerful in Dao Seeking he still afraid how he’s sister would beat him up if she know that he accidentally tried to hook her up…

      I think that Meng Hao actually have inner devil(not the true devil) that is his sister???

        1. And in real life too. Normal people doesn’t rise to prominence. It’s always those weird ones. If you want to rise to the top of the world, you have to be “eccentric” or “abnormal” in one way or another and break through from the confines of ordinary people and social norms.

  3. Stupid Fang Wei. In the end, it isn’t going to only be Meng Hao who out shines you. I’m willing to bet that there will be at least one person from the Ji Clan who also passes you up. Maybe that Ji Yin or maybe the Ji Chosen who we haven’t seen yet. And that’s not even mentioning the fact that you’re going to be thoroughly crushed by Meng Hao and lose the Nirvana Fruit that you stole from him. Hmph.
    Thanks for the chapter!

      1. Impossible. They want to become the “direct” bloodline and collaborating with outsiders will turn their dream of leading the clan to a nightmare. This is the powerful Fang Clan. The pride and power they have will make outsider help look weak and pathetic. It wouldn’t fit the story or characters at all.

        And getting the fruit back isn’t something they’re obviously going to willingly give over, but as we’ve seen before, MH has very strong karma with them and can manipulate them to an extent. Plus once he inputs his current Nirvana Fruits into himself, he’ll be able to just forcefully take them back.

  4. So the Mountain and Sea Tribulation is transcending the 33 heavens and leaving the mountain and seal realm… I wonder if the Fang clan first patriarch was doing that in the vision MH saw. Also, there’s others realms beyond the mountain and seal realm, so, if you pass this tribulation you’ll go this places? or to some other place?

    I re-read the chapter where they mentioned the lord of the four mountain, and was said that when he became a Immortal all the Immortal qi in the Mountain and Realm to surge and swirl towards him, but nothing happened with MH.
    Chapter 802
    “… When he did, it caused all of the Immortal qi in the Mountain and Sea Realm to surge and swirl towards him, such that everyone knew about it.”

    1. I was honestly wondering about that. Maybe it’s that he immediately went to the Ancient Realm afterwards, which is what actually caused that? Considering how by 121 the soul lamps were appearing it’s probably not impossible…….. Or maybe we’re not actually done here yet and still have another few chapters of breakthroughs…….

  5. Don’t worry chosen. Meng Hao has done you all a service. He’s opened your eyes to the possibilities and wiped arrogance from your hearts. Now you actually have something to strive for and even if you don’t reach it you could be among the most powerful as long as you even try to keep up.

    Thanks for the Chapter!

  6. ok this is my prediction on what is going to happen.

    The chosen will all come and fight against haowie. they will all get rekt, and as meng hao is about to or takes the nirvana fruits back from Fang Wei, his grandpa will do something, or something will happen to haowie that he about to die or is forced to escape. Also maybe the terracotta solder will help him fight back and escape.

    The point is that he will somehow be forced to escape or something will take him away and no one will know where he is. And during this time he will probably go back to the immortal bridge thing to do that challenge..

    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. I was actually thinking that’s the likely course of events myself, although I was thinking that basically a war was going to erupt in the Fang Clan, possibly including some outsiders. I wouldn’t even be surprised if the Terracotta Soldier would be destroyed because it saves him from a Dao Realm Expert (maybe because of being tied up too long away from the Ancestral Land), and he reaches the late Ancient Realm before coming back to slaughter the Dao Realm people that caused the destruction of the memento from Ke Yunhai.

    2. I thought the same too and I think maybe the Ji Clan would be the outsider clan to assist Fang Wei bloodline since we can see Ji Clan opinion of Meng Hao when he opening his immortal meridian

      Here’ a super silly wild guess, what if the Fang Clan first patriarch is still alive or at least leave his Devine sense that later appear? and if only the first patriarch exp rebirth four time, then where is the other two? Or maybe it is just 4 times and cannot go more but who knows?

      And I don’t think Meng Hao would call the terracotta soldier to early at least many people have to did first .Moreover I hope Fang Xiushan’s die because he’s the poison, the tumor that spread in Fang Clan or we can just generalize it as Fang Wei whole bloodline and just wipe them out

  7. “In fact, many people assumed that this the sign was the end when, all of a sudden, something else appeared in Meng Hao’s vicinity… nine mountains!”
    Deathblade, you may want to read that sentence out loud to yourself.

  8. That was fun. And he mentioned he could easily wipe out those 1 soul lamp cleared Ancient Realm daoists. Talk about strong boi.

    Thanks for the chapter.

  9. Thanks for the chapter Deathblade, anonpuffs, Madam Deathblade, Courtrecords, GNE, Shu, JerryDaBaws, and Baby Deathblade! Can’t wait to see Meng Hao show all the Chosen their place, whether it be using his bashful side or his devil side.

  10. “Above Paragons are Imperial Lords! Does he have the aura of an Imperial Lord on him?!”

    I was disappointed.
    Is it really the first time we hear about Imperial Lords ?
    Why we never heard about that before ?

    I really like the part of ISSTH that ranks are set and don’t get updated…

  11. Finally, the Door of Immortality began to fade away…
    for the 25th time lol. The god of this world would be like wtf man decide already you planning on opening more or not?! I call back the door and you change your mind. this has been going on for far far too long.
